1. Run Johnny Run

Run Johnny run, run as fast as you can
The cops are coming after you, you are a wanted man

Run Johnny run, run as fast you can
You've lost em before and you can do it again


You're head of the cornbread mafia, a moonshiner's son
and you don't know about nothing but trading what you've grown
Wanted by the feds, hell they want you done

But we're all on your side, so run Johnny run

You float like a ghost, you're footsteps can't be found
No tire tracks, no fingerprints, Omerta means not a sound
And the local sympathizers, they've got your back
saying what every they can say to keep you from being tracked
 

You're head of the cornbread mafia, a moonshiner's son
and you don't know about nothing but trading what you've grown
Wanted by the feds, hell they want you done

But we're all on your side, so run Johnny run

2. Lonesome Midnight Blues

Well I've been working all day and I just want to get some rest
And I know when I get home that it'll still be a mess
and I pray when I'm in bed the lord will help me fall asleep
cuz lately I've been shaking from my head to my feet

You know I'm no liar, I'm telling you the truth
I've been up all night with the Loneome Midnight Blues

My baby she called me on the telephone
Said she won't be coming back to our little home
Now it's been five days, since I've slept at all

When the rooster starts acrowin I'm a wandering the hall
I've been up all night, wishing I could lose
these tired old lonesome midnight blues

And when my baby was around, I'd sleep without a sound
cuz she knew how to hold me, love me, absolve me
of all my sins, and all my guilt

that keep me turning in bed and wishing I could lie still

I've been sitting at this table for so goddamn long
I'm trying to make a name, I'm trying to write a song
That can make you feel like you ain't alone
but I got so high that my mind's done gone
Well I'll be up all night wishin I could lose

these tired old lonesome midnight blues

3. Big Water Blues

The water's shallow, there's glass on the sea floor
said the water's shallow , there's glass on the sea floor
Now don't you go a steppin where you know you shouldn't come and go

That fish was drinking oil, don't you stick your fork in that fish
That fish was drinkin crude, crude oil, don't you stick you fork in him
You best check the water before you toss your line on in

There's something down under and everybody's swimmin like fish
there's something down under and everybody's swimmin like some tiny brained fish
Won't matter how fat your pockets, all that'll matter is how fast you swim

Well, good evening, don't that sun look good goin down
good evening, don't that sun look good going down
Don't you get a little lonesome when you ain't got no more water in your well


 

4. I Don't Need You Anymore

I don't need you anymore
I'm gonna toss you out and lock the door
and you can kick and scratch and shout
but I'm gonna drown you out

With ol' Merle playing loud

I'm gonna let loose and get real proud

I'm gonna sing myself back home
cuz I don't need you anymore

I don't need you anymore
Hell I can get by just fine

I can do just what I have to do
To keep you off my mind

 

I don't need you anymore
I'm gonna grab my whiskey and forget you quickly
and tie up both of my shoes
so I can walk off these blues

 

And when a heart starts sinkin low

there's only so far that it can go
and you can go and have yourself a time now
I thank the lord I don't need you anymore

 

I don't need you anymore
Hell I can get by just fine

I can do just what I have to do
To keep you off my mind

6. Kindness

What the fuck every happened to kindness
good folks don't seem to be growing on trees

and everywhere I go someone's an asshole

That's why you gotta find good company

You'd be surprised to hear who's lying

about you and everything that you do
they spend a lot of time alone and crying

wishing they could be more like yo


Don't let the same old disappoint you

some folks just don't care to change

no they'll just slide on by from friend to friend

burnt bridges left in their way

‚Äč

And I don't have the time to get on out there

turn em right around and show em straight

No I'll just sit right back and wait until 

that fateful judgement day
