Back On My Stompin' Ground

I've been bitten,
Lord, I've been stung.
Well I was cornered,
And I was almost hung.

Well, I sure made a getaway,
And I'm, almost back on my stompin' ground.

Well, it's been written,
Many, many times it's been sung.
Well, it's well learned by the old folks,
And unheeded by the young.

Well, the grass may be greener but,
Me, I just want my stompin' ground.

Yeah....

Well, I hear the river's swollen,
The bridge is broken down.
Weatherman's heartbroken,
But even he can't stop me now.

Won't you tell the folks I'm leaving,
And I won't be long.
Keep the door wide open,
And you will hear the train I'm on.

I've been bitten,
Lord I've been stung.
Well that's alright I'm going back,
To my old stompin' ground.

Drenched by the rain,
Almost blinded by the sun.
I'm too awake for walkin',
But I'm much too tired to run.

I just want to let my feet sink,
Deep in my stompin' ground.

Well, I been jailed,
Last week I was sprung.
Well, it's in the morning paper,
I've been lookin' all around.

Well, I'm just gonna dig in my heels,
See how it feels.
I'm going back to my stompin' ground. 
My old stompin' ground, let's go

BAD PENNY

Well, like a bad penny you've turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby and I broke like a shell.

 

Like a bad penny you've sure lost the glow
But I'm out of reach, your smile's sure gone cold.
Well, it can't ever be like it was then,
Well, don't you fool with me, baby,
Don't you mess with my plans.

Some stormy nights, your memory haunts me,
You won't go away.

Well, like a bad penny you have turned up in the change,
Try to fit into the picture, you can't get inside the frame.
I think you know I'm still sore, but I'm on the mend,
Times sure have changed, it won't happen again.

Well, like a bad penny spins around and around,
Well, you won't know what's gone wrong when it all falls down,
You got to learn from now on to stop playing games,
You ought to keep on moving, you got to spin on your way.

Some lonely nights, I hear you calling,
Won't you go away?

Well, like a bad penny you have turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby, I cracked like a shell.

BANKER'S BLUES

If you got money in the bank,
Don't let your woman draw it out,
Cause she'll take all your money...and,
Then she'll kick you out.

I once had money and a fast Cadillac car,
But I made one big mistake, let my baby know where they are,
And she took all my possessions...and,
Then she threw me out.

Now  young men, heed my advice,
I'll tell you once, I may not tell you twice,
Keep an eye on your old lady anytime that she goes steppin' out.

There's only one woman that I hate more,
You know who that is, why that's my mother-in-law,
My baby's pretty fast but her mother's even faster on the draw.

My baby, my little baby I believe she's gonna jump'n shout,
And I walk down to the bank,
And I draw all of my money out.

Well you got money in the bank,
Don't let your woman draw it out,
Cause she'll take all your money...and,
Then she'll throw you out.

BARLEY AND GRAPE RAG

Well I don't care if I get arrested, 
'Cos tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain, 
I don't care who's interested, 
I'm coming into town just the same. 

I've been so alone, I've been feeling blue, 
I think I need a little drink or two, 
Be my friend, tell me where the place is, 
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn? 

My baby's done me wrong you must have guessed it, 
My heart's so low I think it must be told, 
That I don't wanna know where east or west is, 
'Cos pretty soon I won't feel the cold. 

When I'm walking down mainstreet, feeling no pain, 
Along comes a cop, he can take my name, 
And explain to me what a federal case is, 
I'm mixing the barley with the grape again. 

Bright city lights, make me feel alright, 
I'm right or wrong and tomorrow never comes. 
I don't care if I get investigated, 
And the city fathers they all black my name.
 
I'm pretty sure that you can smell the traces, 
For tomorrow morning, I'll take all the blame. 
I've been feeling bad and feeling blue, 
I think I need a little whiskey or two, 
God, brother, you look like you could do with it too. 
(That's true) 
Tonight I'll sleep on a walking-cane.

Bright city lights, make me feel alright, 
I'm right or wrong and tomorrow never comes. 
I don't care if I get arrested,
Cause tonight they'll need more than a ball and chain. 

I don't care who's interested, 
I'm coming into town just the same, 
I've been feeling alone and I've been feeling blue. 
I think I need a little drink or two. 

Hey, be my friend, tell me where the place is, 
Where the whiskey flows and the dices roll till dawn.

BIG GUNS

Well, you think you're sitting pretty,
But you're sitting on a powder keg.
Well, you think you're standing steady,
But you're weak as a matchstick leg.
Well there's a rumble in the city,
There's a call out for your head.
Now isn't a pity,
You're future's just a lump of lead.

But now you're running scared you've got no place to run,
You're caught between the law and the Big Guns.

Yeah...

Well, it's a long way from the pool halls,
To the rackets and the petty crime.
Well, you thought you were a tough one,
But you've bitten off too much this time.
You've stepped on the wrong toes,
Now look who you've upset.
Well, you walked on the wrong turf,
You got your picture on the police gazette.

Well, now you're running scared, got no place to run,
You're caught between the law and the - Big Guns.

Yeahhh..

Your back's against a wall, you don't like it there at all.
Now your world's about to fall, you got no friends you can call.

Well, you never felt so gritty,
Well, the sweat's pouring down your back.
You're like a tiger in the jungle,
And you can't find your way back.
You haven't played your cards right,
You hadn't seen the signs.
Well, you tried to run the whole game,
Now you've come to the end of the line.

Well, now you're running scared, you've got no place to run.
Now you're face to face with the Big Guns.

BOUGHT AND SOLD

All right...

 

I'm feeling bought and sold,
You're just a three card trickster.
That's something I should've known,
All the good's sure gone bitter.

Hear me now, hear me right.

You think you've got it made,
You think you've got my number.
You'd better check again,
I don't intend to stay here.

Hear me now, hear me right.

It's time-wasting,
Checking up on you.
You're high-flying,
You'll be crash-landing soon.

That's true.
All right.

You want your world my friend,
I think those days are numbered.
I've had it up to here,
Everything's come asunder.

Hear me now, hear me right.

I'm feeling bought and sold,
You're just a three card trickster.
That's something I should've known,
All the good's sure gone bitter.

Hear me now, hear me right.

BOURBON

Well, he's drinking down the bourbon like it was soda pop,
Trying to quell a feeling he knows ain't gonna stop,
He's mortgaged out his blood for one more chance to breathe.

 

He had the D.T.'s for breakfast, the shakes till noon,
He picked up his bag and left the motel room,
His head is held high but his heart is on it's knees.

Well, he packed his guitar and his bar-room tan,
Gotta get some miles behind him as fast as he can,
Another destination, some place else to play.

Well, he left a life behind him in some old trailer park.
They tried to make it work; it was ruined from the start.
He had to shake the rust, it became time to leave.

It's a honky-tonk engagement,
But there's no better place to play.
His face feels like crazy pavement,
It's getting more lined every day.

Well, he's gonna write a letter and try to explain,
She says he's too old to have these growing pains,
But something keeps him moving, living on through the night.

But as the night approaches, a change is in the air,
His heart is pumping fast, he's got no cares.
The music befriends him, it can take him anywhere.

It's a honky-tonk engagement,
But there's no better place to play.
His mind feels like crazy pavement,
He's getting crazed out every day.

Well, he's drinking down the bourbon like it was soda pop,
Trying to quell a feeling he knows ain't gonna stop,
He's mortgaged out his blood for one more chance to breathe.

He had the D.T.'s for breakfast, the chills till noon,
He picked up his bag and left the motel room,
His head is held high but his heart is on it's knees.

BULLFROG BLUES

Well, did you ever,
Well, did you ever,
Well, did you ever,

 

Well, did you ever wake up,
With them bullfrogs on your mind?
Well, did you ever wake up,
With them bullfrogs on your mind?
You had to sit there laughin',
Laughin' just to keep from crying.

Well, did you ever wake up,
With that one woman on your mind,
Well, did you ever wake up,
With that one woman on your mind,
Sit there laughin',
Laughin' just to keep from crying.

My mother got em,
My father got em,
My sister got em,
My brother got em.

I woke up this morning,
My grandmother had them too,
Well, don't you know about that,
I got the bullfrog blues.
Bullfrog

My mother got em,
My father got em,
My sister got em,
My brother got em.

I woke up this morning,
My grandmother had them too,
Well, don't you know about that,
I got the bullfrog blues.

Called up my doctor,
Was not feeling so well,
Well, I called up the doctor,
Was not feeling so well.

He looked inside his bag and said,
"Well, well"....

You don't need no doctor,
You don't need no pill,
You don't need no doctor,
You don't need no pill.

Just take my advice,
It'll surely cure  your ills.

Head on down to New Orleans,
Prettiest place you ever seen,
Get on down to the river bend,
That's where the music never ends.

Open your ears,
Don't you feel good?
Get yourself one helluva shot of rhythm 'n' blues.

Go on down to new Orleans,
The greatest place you ever been,
Head on down to the river bend,
Dig the music of the Cajun bands,
Honky-tonk piano,
Make you feel good,
Open your ears,
To rhythm 'n' blues.

Well, did you ever wake up,
With them bullfrogs on your mind?
Well, did you ever wake up,
With them bullfrogs on your mind?

You had to sit there laughin',
Laughin' just to keep from crying.

Well, did you ever wake up,
With that one woman on your mind,
Well, did you ever wake up,
With that one woman on your mind,

You had to sit there laughing,
Laughing just to keep from crying.

BRUTE FORCE AND IGNORANCE

Brute Force and Ignorance,
Just hit town,
Looking like survivors,
From the Lost and Found.

 

Brute Force and Ignorance,
Have come to play,
A one-night stand at eight o`clock,
Then they`ll be on their way.
 
This old town`s exploding,
And the mayor`s uptight,
He`d like to make it to the show,
But he knows it`s not his night.

He`s got to be beholding,
To his legal spouse,
But she`s put the thumbscrews on him,
And snuck out of the house.
 
There she goes.
 
The picture on the poster,
Raised an eyebrow or two,
At fifty-five to seven,
Lord, you should`ve seen the queue.

City slick and country hick,
They came one and all,
The traffic-light girl and the downhome kids,
Assembled in the hall.
 
Brute Force and Ignorance,
Yes, that`s the name,
The young folks gonna miss them,
Now they`ve gone away.

Well, the show got so crazy,
Today they took the billboard down,
I`ll never forget the scene last night,
When the band was escorted out of town.

This little town`s back in slow motion,
I`m sad to say,
After the confusion,
It`ll never be the same.

Well, I took a walk down Main Street,
Just to pass the time,
And I could hear that music,
Still rolling through my mind.
 
Brute Force and Ignorance,
They sure hit town,
And if you want to find them, buddy,
They`re down at the Lost and Found.
