Money Talks (C. Lakeland, J.J. Cale)

Money talks, it'll tell you a story
Money talks, says strange things
Money talks, very loudly
You'd be surprised, the friends you can buy, with small change
They say, it's the root of all evil
They say, gold is the king
Money talks, you'd better believe it
All that gold, don't mean a thing
Rich people, hear those pockets jingle
Spare change, hear the down-and-outers cry
Money talks, they tip-toe up behind you
Steal what they can, off the cuff or on the sly
Money talks
Money talks
Money talks

Losers (C. Lakeland, J.J. Cale)

Losers, we're just losers
Exclusive club that we're in
Losers, we're just losers
Why don't losers ever win
Came in this morning to spread the word around
Nobody wants to hear what a loser's putting down
Losers, we're just losers
Why don't losers ever win
Been out wanderin', bad luck all around
Can't you help a winner get up off the ground
Losers, we're just losers
Why don't losers ever win

Hard Times (J.J. Cale)

Hard times, it's about to get me
Hard times, they hurt my hands
Hard times, it took my woman
Hard times, lead her to a richer man
Caught in the middle of some fool's advice
If you work real hard, you get a piece of the pie
Can't you hear that laughing
No, the jokes don't end
Consider my resources, it's a hard time to eat
Hard times, it's rough all around
Hard times, it's all gonna end
Hard times, just thinking about it
Consider my resources, it's a hard time to eat
Hard times
Hard times
Hard times

Reality (J.J. Cale)

One drink of whisky, one drink of gin
One drink of vodka and I told my friends
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues
One toke of reefer, a little cocaine
One shot of morphine and things begin to change
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues
Up around here, back down again
I've been up on top, don't bother, my friend
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues

Takin' Care Of Business (J.J. Cale)

I got myself together, got my tie on straight
Downtown, takin' care of business on the street
Glen D.'s got that old piano on the road
Blues is his bag, he's a funky soul
Tim Drummond's on bass, Jim Keltner's on the drums
They'll put it right on you for a shot of rhum
I'll tell you right now it's a funky beat
Downtown, takin' care of business on the street
We ain't very good but that's beside the point
We're all right here trying to rock this joint
Old mama Chip and the Spooner too
Trying to connect with you
Christine Lakeland and Jimmy Karstein
He's a rhythm fool, she's a guitar queen
Let me tell you, my friend Richard is hot on the beat
Downtown, takin' care of business on the street
Oh, climb on board, Chad Hailey running 'round
It's that Ashworth, he's doing a Dixie sound
Hurry up mama 'cause we're all gonna meet
Downtown, takin' care of business on the street

People Lie (J.J. Cale)

Well, you can talk to the governor, talk to a prince
Talk to a preacher or the president
Some people lie, some people lie and deceive
When they say one thing, they mean something else completely
I had me a woman, loved me to begin
Two days later she was with another man
Some people lie, some people lie and deceive
But sometime later, they'll get theirs, yes sirree
Well, I bought me a new car, a lemon no doubt
The wheels fell off, the salesman he was out
People lie, people lie and deceive
They say one thing, they mean something else completely
The bottom line, you understand
When some people talk, you can't believe what they're saying
People lie, people lie and deceive
They say one thing, they mean something else completely

Unemployment (J.J. Cale)

Beating down the pavement, looking for a job
I'll do anything, except steal and rob
Unemployment is something I can't use
If you can't use me, can you tell me some good news
I'll be pretty simple, hear just what I say
I'll do anything, to send these blues away
Unemployment, something I can't use
If you can't help me, can you tell me some good news
You won't have to pay me overtime, overtime and all that
You just tell me what time and where at
Unemployment, something I can't use
If you can't help me, can you tell me some good news
I'll do anything at all, anything at all, to be a friend
You know I'm real prompt, I'm right on time
Unemployment is something I can't use
If you can't help me, can you tell me some good news

Trouble In The City (J.J. Cale)

Heard the one about your woman
Lord, she's been messing 'round
She's been stepping out on the street
Lord, she's been hanging out
Ain't nobody had her this week but it won't take long
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
And I hope it won't mess with me
Walking downtown the other day
A man put a gun in my back
"Give me all you've got or I'll blow you away
That's a fact, Jack"
Woe me, misery, too much been going down
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
And I hope it won't mess with me
Catch the next train out of here
Goodbye, I'll see you, so long
Time was I could fit in here
That was a long time ago
I'll leave, very low, next time you see me at all
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
Lord, Lord, there's trouble in the city
And I hope it won't mess with me

Teardrops In My Tequila (P. Craft)

I've got teardrops in my tequila
I've got teardrops in my tequila
Got Colorado, not enchiladas, on my mind
Ain't it cold as hell in Santa Fe
Makes me shiver to my toes
Things ain't going well in Santa Fe, oh no
Make them two tacos to go, señor
I've got teardrops in my tequila
I've got teardrops in my tequila
Got Colorado, not enchiladas, on my mind, yes on my mind
Goodbye, see you later, Santa Fe
Then the freeway will take me home
Where the air is clean, the open fields, the meadow green
I won't be so all alone
I've got teardrops in my tequila
Yes, I've got teardrops in my tequila
Got Colorado, not enchiladas, on my mind

Livin' Here Too (J.J. Cale)

Don't ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
I was born on a freight train passing by
My mother was poor, my father too
I'll take anything I can get from you
I did not make this world, I'm just livin' here too
I've been shot three times running, been cut with a knife
I've got four children working and I ain't got no wife
The landlord is calling, I'm overdue
If you don't watch my fingers, I'll put the touch on you
I did not make this world, I'm just livin' here too
Turn around slowly, look behind
I'm coming from nowhere and not by design
I did not make this world, I'm just livin' here too
Nothing to win, nothing to lose
I don't want a lot, just a shot will do
I did not make this world, I'm just livin' here too
I did not make this world, I'm just livin' here too
