Track Name: I Told You Once
I Told You Once© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I told you once I told you twice
I don't want to talk no more tonight
And you know you never let things be
You go on and on and on never change a thing

Came home late last night
You got to talk you got to start a fight
And you know I got to get some sleep
You talk and talk and talk and never give it a break

I told you once I told you twice
I don't want to talk no more tonight
And you know I need my peace
I don't want to fight I want to get some sleep

I can't take this kind of stress
Why don't you just give it a rest
Did you ever think bout talkin' on it the next day
Just get on out so I can get some sleep
Track Name: Hooked on the Blues
Hooked on the Blues© music/lyrics jeff Powers

It was down in Lousiana in 75'
I'd gone fishin' wanna wet my line
It was down in Lousiana way back in 75'
Well the fish weren't bitin' but what caught changed my life

I ain't caught nothin' I thought I'd catch the news
I turn on the radio and on come the blues
The fish weren't bitin' I thought I might catch the news
And on come Muddy Waters and now I'm hooked on the blues

Well I'm hooked I'm hooked on the blues
I'm hooked like on cocaine and booze
I'm hooked ya know I'm hooked on the blues
Don't care about nothin' just want to play those tunes

Now every day when the sun come up
I turn on the stereo I want to hear my stuff
Every day you know I love to crank it up
And my woman start cryin' I can't get enough

Well I'm hooked I'm hooked on the blues
I'm hooked like on cocaine and booze
I'm hooked ya know I'm hooked on the blues
Don't care about nothin' just want to play those tunes
Track Name: Beer and Whiskey Coffee and Cigarettes
Beer and Whiskey Coffee and Cigarettes© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Beer and whiskey coffee and cigarettes
That's all I do that's all I ingest/That's what I do to forget
Beer and whiskey coffee and cigarettes
That's all I do since my baby left me

Bars and night clubs all up and down the strip
That's all go to that's all I visit/that's my place of worship/that's my head trip/ripped
Bars and night clubs all up and down the strip
That's all I do since my baby quit me

Lord please help me I didn't eat
Been on a liquid diet for many weeks
Lord please help me I didn't even sleep
Drivin' nails in my coffin since my baby quit me

I find myself cryin' in my own beer
I find myself drownin' in my own tears
Whores and nightclubs that's all I care
Walkin' the back streets and cryin' since my baby left me
Track Name: I Miss My Ball and Chain
I Miss My Ball and Chain© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I woke up this morning and I looked around
You know what I found? My little girl left town
I woke up this morning and I looked around
Everything I tell you everything I say is true
(and) Everything I tell you everything I say is true

You know she felt like a ball and chain
Every time I turned around there she was again
You know she felt just like a ball and chain
Everything I tell you everything I say is true
(and) Everything I tell you everything I say is true

And now I miss my ball and chain
You know I miss that ball and chain

Every time I tried to get away
There she was right in my face
You know I tried...I tried to get away
Everything I tell you everything I say is true
(and) Everything I tell you everything I say is true

And now I miss my ball and chain
You know I miss that ball and chain
Track Name: Workin'
Workin' © music/lyrics Jeff Powers

It's been a long day It's been a long week
I'm going out and have a drink
Workin' over time I don't mind
Just as long as they treat me right

Workin' puttin' in my time
And when I'm off I'm gonna unwind
Going down to my favorite place
Gonna drink and party all night

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do
Mamma didn't raise no fool
I work when it's time to work and I play when it's time to play
I get the most out of everyday

Workin' puttin' in my time
And when I'm off I'm gonna unwind
Going down to my favorite place
Gonna drink and party all night

I wanna tell you before I go
I'll be back again to party more
Sometimes I got to work both day and night
But when I'm done I go out to play

Workin' puttin' in my time
And when I'm off I'm gonna unwind
Going down to my favorite place
Gonna drink and party all night
Track Name: Guess Who's Loving Her Now?
Guess Who's Loving Her Now?© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

You act like I'm nothin' You're just too good for me to hang around
You think you're so much better You can just push around
You act like I'm nothin' And you're just too good for me to hang around
But did you hear about your woman Guess who's lovin' her now?

When you see me in the street You look the other way
When you meet me at a party You never know my name
You act like I'm nothin' You're just too good for me to hang around
Did you hear about your woman Guess who's lovin' her now?

You got a bigger house
Money a whole lot more
You got real fine cars
Things you love to show
Did you hear about your woman Guess who's lovin' her now?
When you were steppin' out I was slippin' in your back door

You got shinny golden rings
Vintage wines to pour
You got a real fine woman
That's something I know
Did you hear about your woman Guess who's lovin' her now?
When you were steppin' out I was slippin' in your back door
Track Name: I Made Up My Mind
I Made Up My Mind© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I made up my mind
You're not coming back again
I'm puttin' way my crime
I'm sending you back to your friends

Cause you wore out your welcome
And I'm all out of time
You asked me for just one evening
And now you think you're moving on in

Well I've got news for you
The kid don't lose that game
And you just keep on dreamin'
And you'll find the dog's had her day

You can roll and you can tumble
You can scream and cry the whole night long
You can hang your head and lie baby
But you're not steppin' foot back in my home

Cause you wore out your welcome
And drove me clean out of my mind
You asked me for just one thing
But another thing was on your mind

Well I've got news for you
The kid don't play no game
And you just keep on schemin'
But you don't stand a chance

[Interlude]

You can try to know my good friends
You can hang around my door all day
You can bless my mother and father till you die baby
But you're not steppin' foot back this way

Cause you wore out your welcome
And you went and crossed the line
You had me thinking one thing
But something dirty was on your mind

And I've no use for you
I hardly know your name
The only thing that you're good for
I can get any other place

I made up my mind
You're not coming back again
I'm puttin' way my crime
I'm sending you back to your friends

I made up my mind
You're not coming back again
I'm all out of time
I'm sending you back to your friends

I made up my mind
You're not coming back again
I'm puttin' way my crime
I'm sending you back to your friends
Track Name: Bad Voodoo
Bad Voodoo© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I'm on the outside people, You can see it's true
Every time I try to do right, I look like a fool
I must have done something, Really wrong in my last life
Cause in this one baby, I'm paying one big price

There is nothing I can do, Nothing I can say
I get down on my knees, but it don't help to pray
Cause I'm bad voodoo...bad voodoo baby
I'm bad voodoo

I used to think, One day my ship would come in
But now I see, I'll keep driftin' and driftin'
There's no smooth sailing, No cool cool breeze
That can bring this ship of fools, Back to port again

There is nothing I can do, Nothing I can say
I get down on my knees, but it don't help to pray
Cause I'm bad voodoo...bad voodoo baby
I'm bad voodoo

I went to the gypsy woman, she looked in her crystal ball
She just shook her head, And showed me to the door
She didn't give me a trinket, She didn't give me advise
She didn't read me my cards, She didn't tell me my life

There's nothing you can do, Nothing you can say
You can get down on your knees, but it won't help to pray
Cause I'm bad voodoo...bad voodoo baby
I'm bad voodoo
Somebody help me!
Somebody help me
Track Name: I Feel Like an Outlaw Again
I Feel Like an Outlaw Again© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Sittin' here wonderin' which way to go
I can't make my mind up so many roads
I'm gonna leave here/her cause you know I can't stay
My friends all say I'm crazy but I'm on my way

Cause I feel like an outlaw again
Blowin' free with the wind
I don't wanna waste more time
So I'm just gonna ride

The engine's rumblin' on down the road
I got no plans gonna go with the flow
I'm gonna leave here cause ya know I can't stay
Sweet little woman I'll be back one day

Cause I feel like an outlaw again
Blowin' free with the wind
I don't wanna waste more time
So I'm just gonna ride

[SOLO+MODULATION]

Been spinnin' my wheels every day
Workin' real hard but I hardly get paid
I'm gonna leave here cause you know I can't stay
I tried to settle down but I won't fade away

Cause I feel like an outlaw again
Blowin' free with the wind
I don't wanna waste more time
So I'm just gonna ride

Lookin' back on my life
Never took the time to do things right
But ya know I love that open road
She's been good to me and it feels like home

Cause I feel like an outlaw again
Blowin' free with the wind
I don't wanna waste more time
So I'm just gonna ride
Track Name: I'll Be There For You
I'll Be There For You© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

When you're down and love's not there
Just call my name and I'll come runnin' there
Cause you've always been there
And I'll be there I'll be there for you

When your darkest night falls and you feel all alone
Just hold out your hand and I'll take hold
Cause you've always been there
And I'll be there I'll be there for you

Livin' in this life might seem crazy
One time you're on top of the world next time you're nothin'
Through the good times and bad times Right down through the years
You need someone special at your side keepin' it real

[Solo]

Livin' in this life might seem crazy
One time you're on top of the world next time you're nothin'
Through the good times and bad times right down through the years
You need someone special at your side keepin' it real

When your so called friends turn their back on you
I'll be there win or lose
Cause you've always been there
And I'll be there I'll be there for you
I'll be there I'll be there for you
I'll be there I'll be there for you
Track Name: Don't Try and Save Me
Don't Try and Save Me© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Don't try and save me You won't last
Can't you see how I'm moving real fast
I'm going down, down, down real fast
They say misery loves company I sure don't need no more of that

Don't try to reach me I don't understand
This fascination with a no good man
I'm going down, down, down real fast
They say misery loves company I sure don't need no more of that

Don't try to save me You won't succeed
Can't you see how I'm getting' real mean
I'm going down, down, down real fast
They say misery loves company I sure don't need no more of that

Don't try to change me I won't hang
Can't you see how I'm going insane
I'm going down, down, down real fast
They say misery loves company I sure don't need no more of that
Track Name: Drunk as a Skunk
Drunk as a Skunk© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I'm drunk down on my knees
I'm drunk and lonely and I'm begging you please
Now I'm outside your window Crying in the street

I was waiting all day there at home
I was sittin' and drinkin by my telephone
You never gave me a call so I'm outside your home

I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I know it ain't pretty cause I'm down on my luck

Come back baby please don't go
Come back baby I want you to know
That I'll stop drinking I won't be a jerk no more

But if you're gonna leave me let me say goodbye
If you're gonna leave me let me come inside
And give me a little something to remember you by

I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I know it ain't pretty cause I'm down on my luck

I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I'm drunk drunk as a skunk
I know it ain't pretty cause I'm down on my luck
Track Name: Time to Change
Time to Change© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

It's time to take a look at myself
Face to face
Running round trying to lose myself
But I end up in the same place

It's time I have a talk with myself
Man to man
No more backin' down
Lose or win

It's time to change
It's time to change
It's time to change

It's time I went and carried myself
With some grace
No more foolin' round
No more games

It's time to change
It's time to change
It's time to change

It's time I can walk with myself
Hand in hand
No more empty promises
No more broken plans

It's time to change
It's time to change
It's time to change
It's time to change (One day the sun gonna shine on me)
It's time to change (Shine in my backdoor one day)
It's time to change (Someday the sun gonna shine on me)
It's time to change (Shine in my backdoor one day)
It's time to change (You know it gonna shine)
It's time to change (Shine on me)
It's time to change (You know the wind's gonna change)
It's time to change (Gonna blow my blues away)
It's time to change (The wind's gonna change)
It's time to change (Gonna blow these blues away)
It's time to change (One day the sun gonna shine on me)
It's time to change
It's time to change
