Track Name: Bad Luck Boogie
Bad bad luck
All my life
Feels I'm playin'
Against loaded dice

I'm going up
Gonna change my way
No more cheatin' women
Till my dyin' day

Worked hard hard hard
All my life
Never been payed
A fair honest price

I'm going up
Gonna change my way
No more workin' blues
Till my dyin' day

Got no respect
All my life
Feels they're always steppin'
On my rights

I'm going up
Gonna change my way
Gonna fight like a dog
Till my dyin' day
Track Name: I'm Gonna Leave
You had me in the palm of your hand
Tell me to jump and I ask when
You had me under your thumb
Crawlin' round like a dirty dog (squirmin')

I'm gonna leave I'm heading out the door
I'm gonna leave you're ain't worth fighting for
I'm gonna leave I'm heading down the road
I'm gonna leave I won't be back no more


You had me like a puppet on a string
You lead me round and I can't do a thing
You had me under your spell
Walkin' round in a living hell

I'm gonna leave I'm heading out the door
I'm gonna leave you're ain't worth fighting for
I'm gonna leave I'm heading down the road
I'm gonna leave I won't be back no more

[SOLO #1]

You had me in your jail
No matter how I tried I couldn't make the bail
You had me on a short leash
No matter how I tried I couldn't break free

I'm gonna leave I'm heading out the door
I'm gonna leave you're ain't worth fighting for
I'm gonna leave I'm heading down the road
I'm gonna leave I won't be back no more

[SOLO #2]

[BREAKDOWN]

[VERSE/CHORUS]

[SOLO #3/OUTRO]
Track Name: Careful What You Wish For
Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
She might not be what She seems And you just might be a fool

I used to love you baby But you never had a kind word to say
I used to love you baby But you never had a kind word to say
I gave you a piece of heaven And you gave me hell to pay

Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
She might not be what she seems And you just might be a fool

I was always good to you baby You know nice guys finish last
I was always good to you baby You know nice guys finish last
I gave you everything I had And you gave nothing back

Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
Careful what you wish for You know it might come true
She might not be what she seems And you just might be a fool

Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
You know it might come true
Track Name: I Know You Think I'm Bad
I Know You Think I’m Bad© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I know you think I'm bad
I know what's in your head
I know you think it's true
All the things they've been telling you
But what do they know they ain't been schooled
They've never walked in my shoes

I know you think I'm crazy
I know what your people are saying
I hear it behind my back
I can tell by the way they act
Can't you just bend the rules
And let me spend a little time with you

I know my reputation
Wasn't good in the past
I don't want you hesitatin'
I don't want you believing the rap
So don't be afraid you won't be used
Can't you see I'm a fool for you


I know you think I'm bad
I know what's in your head
I know you think it's true
All the things they've been telling you
But what do they know they ain't been schooled
They've never walked in my shoes
Track Name: Throw This Dog a Bone
Throw This Dog a Bone© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Come On! And throw this dog a bone
Come On! And throw this dog a bone
Won't you take me home
I won't do you no harm
Take me in off the street
Give me somewhere to sleep

Come On! And throw this dog a bone
Come On! And throw this dog a bone
Won't you be my girl
In this dog eat dog world
I'm down on all fours
Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours

Come On! And throw this dog a bone
Come On! And throw this dog a bone
I've been down on my luck
Let me drink from your lovin cup
I'm on bended knee
And I'm begging you please
Track Name: That's How I Roll
That’s How I Roll© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

You might not like the cloths I wear
You might not like how I cut my hair
You might not even like my name
You might not like anything
(but) I've been around too long to change
I Just got one thing to say
Can't change this soul
That's how I roll

That's how I roll
Devil's got my soul
Blood burning in my veins
Don't wear no ball and chain

You might not like the car I drive
You might not like my 9-5
You might think I'm really strange
You might not like anything
(but) I've been around too long to change
(and) I just got one thing to say
Can't change this soul
That's how I roll

That's how I roll
Devil's got my soul
Blood burning in my veins
Don't wear no ball and chain

[Solo]

That's how I roll
Devil's got my soul
Blood burning in my veins
Don't wear no ball and chain


You might not like where I go
You might not like the people I know
You might not even like my face
But it's my time and my day
(but) I've been around to change
(and) I Just got one thing to say
Can't change this soul
That's how I roll

That's how I roll
The devil's got my soul
Blood burning in my veins
Don't wear no ball and chain
Track Name: Roadkill
Roadkill© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Turn the key and hit the gas
Screaming down the highway
Live each day like my last
Don't want to just fade away

Live fast die young
You won't catch me ridin' no shotgun
Live each day for the thrill
Won't be another of life's road kill

Chase the sun to the coast
A rebel has no time to regret
Live my life to the most
Riding off for into sunset

Live fast die young
Won't catch me riding shotgun
Live each day for the thrill
Won't be another one of life's road kill

Leave my home and head out west
Just living for the day
Nothing back there, so I'll leave my past
Got rock and roll and the devil to pay

Live fast die young
Won't catch me ridin' shotgun
Live each day for the thrill
Won't be another one of life's road kill
Track Name: Pocket Full of Money
Pocket Full of Money© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Got a pocket full of money, got me a brand new car
Got a pocket full of money, got me a brand new car
Going uptown (downtown)
Going to a Fat Cat Bar

Gonna spend my money, gonna to party all night long
Gonna spend my money, gonna to party all night long
Gonna buy me a lot of that
Wine, women and song

Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Gonna spend it till it's gone

You only live once and ya won't be coming back
You only live once and ya won't be coming back
Ya can't take it with you
So you might as well spend the cash

Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Gonna spend it till it's gone

Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Got a pocket full of money
Gonna spend it till it's gone
Got a pocket full of money
Gonna spend it till it's gone
Got a pocket full of money
Gonna spend it till it's gone
Track Name: Cold Wind in Cleveland
Cold Wind in Cleveland© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

There's a cold wind in Cleveland baby, Chill ya right to the bone
There's a cold wind in Cleveland baby, Chill ya right to the bone
But I'd rather be out on the street
But I'd rather be out on the street
Than with my woman at home

I got a mean cruel woman, and I'm paying the price
I got a mean cruel woman, and I'm paying the price
She's so mean and cruel
She's so mean and cruel
She scares the night

I'd move down south, but the weather won't change my life
I'd move down south, but the weather won't change my life
And as long as she's around
And as long as she's around
It'll be as cold as ice
