BLACK CROW (Track 3)
LYRICS: CATHY LEMONS; MUSIC STEVIE GURR

There’s a black crow
He’s maimed but he dropped down to visit me
There’s a black crow
He’s maimed but he drop down to visit me
He circles round and round
Won’t let me go
Won’t set me free

He walk on one toe
Might as well use a cane
He walk on one toe
Might as well use a cane
But when he starts into love me, lord
Drive poor me insane

We fly so high
I swear we touch the sun
We fly so high
I swear we touch the sun
Said he don’t love me, lord
He don’t want to love no one

I beat him with my words
And he beats me with his wings
I beat him with my words
And he beats me, beats me with his wings
Everybody warned me
I don’t hear a thing

You’re my maimed black crow, baby
All I want is your wings around me
You’re my maimed black crow
All I ever wanted was your wings around me
I swear we both got to burn
But I’ll take you with me

HIP CHECK MAN (TRACK 4)
WRITTEN BY CATHY LEMONS March 1, 2012
(Based on Hooker’s Boogie riffs)

You got the slyest eyes
I ever seen
I amuse you
Lord, you sho amuse me
Hip Check Man
I want ya to come see me, some time
One thing I know
You got me on your mind

Well my hip check man
He got a lot of them broken bones
His head aint connected
To his heart a stone
That’s all right, baby
You don’t have to worry ‘bout a thing
I’ll be your doctor baby
All you got to do
Is come see about me

Well, I known some men
In my time
But my hip check man
Bout to drive me outta a mind
Hip check man
How can I fix them broken bones
Cause I can’t stand to see you baby
Can’t stand to see you out there
all alone

Well my hip check man’s from another world
One thing I learned
He’s got another girl
But I don’t’ care
I got one thing on my mind
It’s that hip check darling
And the way you make me smile

Well my hip check man thinks he knows about me
He don’t know nothing
And that’s the way it’s got to be
Hip check man
I still want you to come see me, sometime
One thing I know
I got you on my mind

You out there all alone now
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

YOUR'E IN MY TOWN NOW (Track 5)
WRITTEN BY CATHY LEMONS

You’re in my town now
You better watch yourself
You’re in my town now, baby
You must think I’m somebody else

Boy, you fool with me
Last thing
You’ll ever do

I want you to take that woman
Take that woman out
From under my eye
Take that woman
Take that woman out
From under my eye (I don’t wanna look at that)

Boy, you fool with me
Last thing
You’ll ever do

You have the nerve to come around
Sold me out
For a little chicken change

You got the nerve to come around
Sold me out
For a little chicken change, didn’t you now baby (oh she’s all that, she’s all that)

Boy, you fool with me
Last thing
You’ll ever do (And you know me well enough to know what I mean, the last thing)

You just a tourist in my town
Just somebody passing through
You just like a tourist in my town, baby
Just somebody passing through (and I know the sheriff—got spies all around)

Boy, you fool with me
Last thing
You’ll ever do

I’M GOING TO TRY
WRITTEN BY CATHY LEMONS

I never worked at nothing
Never, never in my life
I always thought I could snap my fingers
I thought everything would just
Turn out right

But that's all over now
Because I I I I I I I
I'm going to try (yes I am)
I'm going to try

I never thought to look up
Always lookin' low
The promise of what I might be
Never, never, lord seemed to show

But that's all over now
I I I I I I I
I'm going to try
I'm going to try

It's easy
To do nothin' (to do nothin')
Never put a damn thing
On the line
Never stake a claim
Never take a risk
For heartache
Never find out what could be mine

But that's all over now
I I I I I I I
I'm going to try (you hear me)
I'm going to try
If I have to stay up all night long in my skin and cry
I'm going to try
I won't think back and wonder on what I might be
I'm going to try
I'm going to try

TEXAS SHUFFLE (TRACK 9)
WRITTEN BY CATHY LEMONS

Gimme an old time TX Shuffle
I Ain’t foolin’ around
Ya, Gimme an old time TX Shuffle
I Ain’t foolin’ around
Took me 3 whole days
Just to get outta town

All my friends went to jail
Watched ‘em go down one by one
All my friends went to jail
Watched ‘em go down one by one
Down to the last man standing
Now I’m on the run

The driver came out sweatin’
Said they got ‘em all in the department store
The driver ran out sweatin
They got ‘em down there in the department store (in the basement baby)
Lucky you was so high
I wouldn't let you walk through the door

It’s so hot down there in Texas
You can crack an egg on the sidewalk and fry it
It’s so hot down there in Texas
You can crack an egg on the sidewalk and fry it
The heat will break you
Man I ain’t lyin’

The jails down in Dallas got
Yellow walls and grease on the floor
The jails down in Big D got
Yellow walls and grease on the floor
I still feel myself shudder
When they close an iron door

I ain’t goin’ down
If I have to drive all night and day
I said I ain’t goin’ down
If I drive all night and day
Sirens screamin up behind
But I got mud on my license plate
(come on, come on, you ain’t gonna get me, I ain’t been got yet, I made it, I knew I would, … fools …huckle)

THE DEVIL HAS BLUE EYES (Track 10)
WRITTEN BY CATHY LEMONS

The devil has blue eyes
I say the devil has blue eyes
Brush of a wing in a blackened sky
And the way that I love him
I swear I like to die

Heart has no say
The heart has no say
This devil has taken my love away
I can’t understand
Why God has treated me this way

I’m in my Sunday clothes
I’m dressed up in my Sunday clothes
Waiting for the angel flyin’ low
Might be a man
I swear I just don’t know

Devil has eyes of pain
Devils has eyes a pain
Maybe half a man—maybe insane
I’ll still take him back
I’m just waiting on my last train

In heaven we will meet
In blue heaven we will meet
That’s why I see your shadow round my feet
I know why
Love is something you can’t keep
