Track Name: Betrayal Blues
Got them betrayal blues
Been in a fire for too many months
Somebody pull me out

Full of lies, cheatin, cocaine dealers
And a woman that can stir my demons
So now I go without

Without your love, your lies
Your fake compromise, oh lord
You really took me for a ride

Went to the doctor
Said son you got three places you could wind up
If you donʼt behave
Either jail, straightjacket,
or six feet deep in your grave

Got them betrayal blues
Been in a fire for too many months
Somebody pull me out

I been tryin to relieve this deep dark
Feelin for days
I been tryin to relieve this deep dark
Feelin for days
Track Name: Far Behind Blues
I'm tired and lonely
I'm Beat up and I'm broke

My cars been on empty for 3 months straight
I'm out of shape and out of smoke

No matter how far I get or how hard I try
Seems like The blues ain't far behind

You know my minds been going for all hours
8 days of the week

I spent my last dollar on the road while I was trying
To get some cash and to get some sleep

No matter how far I get or how hard I try
Seems like The blues ain't far behind

I ain't got much to show for love
A few girls I don't talk to no more

A sad man ain't that nice to be around
They made their way out the front door

No matter how far I get or how hard I try
Seems like The blues ain't far behind

No matter how far I get or how hard I try
Seems like The blues ain't far behind
Track Name: Don't Leave Before Dawn
I say hey
Baby don't you leave before dawn
I say hey
Baby don't you leave before dawn

I wasn't lookin' for no lovin'
But your lovin' really turns me on

I say hey
Baby don't you leave before noon
I say hey
Baby don't you leave before noon

I don't know when I'll see you next
I'm hopin' that it's gonna be soon

I say hey
Baby come back one more time
I say hey
Baby come back one more time

Cuz a man like me could use some love
To ease my worried mind
