Track Name: (Given) All My Lovin'
maybe I wasn't born for anything
but gimme a chance, I'll slip this skin
the blues they got in those songs
gimme that blues, I'll prove you wrong

count to four, won't sell myself short
given all my lovin' to rock n' roll
buy me a pint or two, I'll play for you
got rock n' roll within my soul

burn miles n' miles along with cigarettes
'cross the country to play another set
never told a lie but you're nothing like
"London Calling" the first time

count to four, won't sell myself short
given all my lovin' to rock n' roll
buy me a pint or two, I'll play for you
got rock n' roll within my soul

count to four, won't sell myself short
given all my lovin' to rock n' roll
buy me a pint or two, I'll play for you
got rock n' roll within my soul
Track Name: Back In
got no silver spoons
gotta light that fire inside
ain't gonna hand it to you
you gotta earn your stripes
everyone's just a man
made of bone n' flesh
gotta be somebody
lesser man's as good as dead

take shit from no one, you gotta live to win
but opportunities, they run thin
so tie up them boots n' kick your way back in

gotta be a man
wrestle for your rights
get the upper hand
back off from no fight
never be told
you were born to lose
gotta toughen up
it's all up to you

take shit from no one, you gotta live to win
but opportunities, they run thin
so tie up them boots n' kick your way back in

got no silver spoons
gotta light that fire inside
ain't gonna hand it to you
you gotta earn your stripes
everyone's just a man
made of bone n' flesh
gotta be somebody
lesser man's as good as dead

take shit from no one, you gotta live to win
but opportunities, they run thin
so tie up them boots n' kick your way back in
Track Name: Man in Black
I left for Cleveland, Mississippi
where delta was born
where folks speak of the young Johnson
where he's been before

buried a box in the crossroads
ten years ago
now the man in black is on my back

packed my guitar for the road
n' tied up my ol' boots
left for the Sunflower River
n' the echoes of the "Cross Road Blues"

buried a box in the crossroads
ten years ago
now the man in black is on my back

for the blues, I'd trade my life

n' so I met a man dressed in black
took my guitar for a while
it plays in a different tune now
got ten years till I die

buried a box in the crossroads
ten years ago
now the man in black is on my back
Track Name: Dead Town
everyone's goin' away
this town's gettin' emptier every day
what once was great is now but a shell
n' all you bastards can go to hell

born to this dead town
n' here we'll die
pour me another
make it feel alive

the streets are filled with livin' dead
rock n' roll's but echoes in my head
n' I, I could kill for a beer
got nothing to do, got nothing here

born to this dead town
n' here we'll die
pour me another
make it feel alive
