about

Red Light Rodeo Richmond, Virginia

Track Name: Aces & Eights
I spent all my mercy on one last dram,
you wanna know just where I am?
I'm where I made her poor heart cry,
he had the king and I had the ace,
but he threw two more right in my face,
took my last nickle, now I'm bound to die.

I was young when I learned the art,
he was an old man with no heart,
he saw that I was just out on a spree,
I played well, fell for his spell,
now god forgive me cause I'm going to hell,
all the same it's just the end of me

I thought I was the finest wine,
but I find I'm no better than a sugar shine,
no need to wonder what my friends will think,
I've been gone now for a while,
never the type to lack a smile,
but all the same this ship is gonna sink.

I spent all my mercy on one last dram,
you wanna know just where I am?
I'm where I made her poor heart cry,
he had the king and I had the ace,
but he threw two more right in my face,
took my last nickle, now I'm bound to die.

well come on lord shine down on me,
this ain't the way it's meant to be,
don't you know by now a man can only try?
death take pity and preacher pray,
I got one more word to say,
ain't time for that word to be goodbye.
Track Name: White Dog
Run white dog.
Run white dog.
Run white dog and you never come home.

You caused me to weep.
You caused me to moan.
You caused me to weep and to moan.

I don't care if you ever come back home.
I don't care if you ever come back home.
I don't care if you ever come back home.
I'm better off here alone.
Track Name: Cork
why do I put the cork back in the bottle,
why should I take the time to say goodnight,
why do them sweet gals lie and say the love me,
I never asked to lead this wicked life.

well preacher says that this life is just suffering,
I wish that I could tell you that's a lie,
but here I sit at midnight, drunk and weeping,
as I grit my teeth and watch you pass me by.

(chorus)

I got no more need for tent revivals,
no more shall I breath this chilly air,
I never asked the good lord for a fine red feather bed,
never asked for pain but got my share.

(chorus)

well now rich folks they eat well, and I go hungry,
pretty girls get their songs played on T.V.,
but I saved up just to buy this pint of whiskey,
seems like suffering's the only thing that's free.

(chorus)

well there ain't no happy ending friends and children,
and it ain't a field of roses on that side,
so try to find your own loves and your laughter,
to outweigh all those rolling tears you'll cry

(chorus)
