DEVIL OUTSIDE THE DOOR ©Angry JohnnyAnd The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I hear the devil laughing think he’s right outside the door If this is it I wonder what my sorry life was for For all the things I’ve done it seems that Hell is my reward I was raised up on the Bible to be let down by the Lord Jesus I am asking one last time if You are there Send some kind of sign for me and show me that You care I’m down here on my prayin’ bones ashamed of all my pride Please tell me You’ll be waiting when I reach the other side tell ‘em all I said goodbye ain’t no turnin’ back this time And you can tell ‘em not to cry tell ‘em all that I am feelin’ fine Who cares if it’s a lie the truth is just a waste of time... Easy to leave it all behind, cuz it was never really mine It wasn’t s’posed to be like this /why wasn’t everything OK One too many last kiss / too many ones that got away I’m sick of always fallin’ down /think I’ll stay just as I lie Throw some dirt on me..throw some dirt and walk on by Don’t shake your fucking heads not while your looking down on me Cuz you ain’t got a clue and I don’t need your sympathy Nobody can help me now my time for saving is long gone I threw it all away must be a million years ago Old Scratch is on his way now, he’s coming up to get his prize I’m down here on my prayin’ bones forgive me for my pride Kiss her goodbye for me and tell her that I tried Now Hell’s the only thing that’s waitin’/ for me on the other side Kiss her goodbye for me and tell her that I tried...

Long Long Lonely Ride ©Angry Johnny-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI It’s a long long lonely ride When you know no one is waiting back at home And you tell yourself you tried But you didn’t try hard enough and now she’s gone It’s a long long lonely night When you know the house is empty from now on There’s things that fill your head you should’ve said But it’s too late ‘cause now she’s gone It’s a long long lonely life When you let true love just walk right out the door Now you sit alone at night With a bottle just a starin’ at the floor And you know it was your fault She just couldn’t stick around here anymore And let the Devil take you down to where you’ve been so many times before And you know there’s only memories Nothing else is waiting there for you Nobody is waiting and tonight your nightmares They’re all coming true You fucked this up beyond repair Because it’s what you always seem to do You’re running out of folks who care Seems everybody’s pretty tired of you

A Thousand Years ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI A thousand cold goodbyes are pounding in my head A thousand other guys are sleepin in your bed A thousand dear I love yous ringin in my ears A thousand lies to last me another thousand years A thousand photographs I’ve thrown into the fire A thousand knowing laughs on me as they conspired A thousand paragraphs no one will ever read A lonely epetaph that’s overgrown with weeds A thousand dirty deeds that soon will be forgotten Just let the loser bleed and once his body’s rotten Just drink up and forget about old what’s his name No worries no regrets it’s just a fucking game It feels like a thousand years have come and gone Another thousand years could never right the wrongs Another thousand years would never bring you home A thousand years from now I’ll still be all alone A thousand memories will never go away They’ll never let me be no matter how I pray A thousand years from now it will still be yesterday Forever plus a thousand years who’s counting anyway So pour another round the parties only starting Don’t worry bout that sound it’s only me departing I gave it all but when I fell the world just kept turning I loved you then I love you now I love you as I’m burning

ADVENTURELAND ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI- She had that Devil’s daughter kind of pretty That makes men do dark dark things When she walked into a room They were taking off their rings She had that certain way of walking That makes you trip over your feet She had that smokey way of talking And she was talking it at me I forced the lump back down my throat And I pretended my balls were bigger I said girl you’re sure to kill me Better call me a gravedigger She smiled a little smile And she took me by the hand She said let’s go on an adventure Out in adventureland So we raged on down the highway With a bottle and a gun And I knew it right away That we’d be dead ‘for we got done Love walked into the bar that night And she took me for a ride If I told you I regret it I’d be telling you a lie We robbed stores at our convenience We spent our nights in cheap motels Felt like I’d died and gone to Heaven As we drove straight into Hell Wish we could’ve just kept driving Find somewhere to disappear But once you’re in adventureland There’s no getting out of here In a Pennsylvania diner It all came crashing down She kissed me hard and whispered Let’s burn these fuckers down We shot our way out of Altoona And we hid out in a barn I held my true love tightly As she bled out in my arms She said darlin don’t forget me Closed her eyes and squeezed my hand she said now go on an adventure Out in adventureland

Gonna Run 04:06
GONNA RUN ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI Well I’ll tell you something fellers I ain’t no fortune teller But I think I know how this is gonna end I think she’s gonna up and leave me On the day she starts to need me But she’ll tell me that she’ll always be my friend First her mind will start to wonder And then her eyes will start to wander And she’ll tell me that she needs a little time Then she’ll tell me that she’ll miss me And I’ll crack open the whiskey Try like hell to drink that girl out of my mind She’s gonna run gonna run gonna run off for them hills And I’ll run straight for the whiskey beer and pills I’m gonna end up broken hearted So let’s get my funeral started The one thing that I’m sure is that love kills If I had just been smarter I never would have started But I dove right in with blinders on my eyes ‘cuz I never seen a girl so pretty Oh mercy Lord have pity She got the devil in her smile and Heaven ‘tween her thighs Well the moral of this tale’s Some of us are born to fail But I’m not sure that means that we shouldn’t try ‘cuz somewhere someday maybe She’ll finally be somebody’s baby Then there but for the wrath of God go I

Just Plain Bad ©2008 Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI My happy days are over My good time days ar through My prison days have just begun All on account of you The things they said were so full of spite They said you were no good Nobody left the fucking bar that night Until they understood It’s like an angel walked right though my door When I first laid eyes on you I remember it like yesterday I wish that you did too Everybody said you were a whore I said that can’t be true But I guess only a cheatin whore Would do the things you do The day we met I should’ve run like Hell When I had the chance Before I knew you put me under a spell With that voodoo in your pants One little taste and I was hooked like a fish You said c’mon let’s dance Ever since I’ve been a brain dead fool Just a zombie in a trance You fucked my worst enemy You fucked my best friend too You fucked the whole damn bowling team Till they were black and blue You even fucked them siamese twins You fucked them right in two You’re gonna fuck the whole goddamn world Before you’re fucking through Thought that you were pure like morning dew But you’re just plain bad I’m just another stupid sucker who Convinced himself he had An angel who had been Heaven sent But none of it was true Much to my eternal detriment I’m still in love with you My drinkin days are over My fightin days are through My prison days have just begun All on account of you While you were busy fucking everyone You really fucked me too I guess instead of killing everyone I should’ve just killed you

ONE LAST LOOK ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI One last look over her shoulder Nothing left back here to hold her I’m not the only guy who’s watched her walk away One last kiss as she was going And there ain’t nothing worse than knowing Knowing that she won’t be back someday Sometimes I hear a bit about her And that just makes it worse without her At least I’m hearing that she’s still OK People come and people go I know And memories fade away slow But she’s the only one I think of everyday I see her clear as it was yesterday One look over her shoulder as she walked away I guess we just ran out of things to say And now I wait for her return Been fifteen years you’d think that I’d learn I can’t move on ‘cause her memory’s in my way Guess you could say my life was wasted But for a moment at least I tasted The sweetest thing that God has ever made One last look over her shoulder Nothing left back here to hold her I’m not the only guy who’s watched her walk away

I've Tried 03:07
I’ve Tried ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I can’t get over you I’ve tried God knows I’ve tried But I still want you back here by my side You are the only one for me Can’t you see As long I’m alive you’ll always be No matter how much that I drink You’re all I think about I see you every time I close my eyes And when I dream I dream of you Every single night Sometimes I’m afraid to shut the light ‘cause when I dream ‘bout you I cry I wanna die ‘cause I wake up and you’re not here with me You’re memory is in my soul And I’m not whole I used to be but that was long ago Now you are gone and I’m alone And you don’t telephone And I wonder if you remember me You were my love you were my life There was a time When you told me that you would be my wife But fate has played it’s trick on me Now memories Are all that’s left and they are killing me I can’t get over you I’ve tried God knows I’ve tried But when you walked out my soul just up and died

President’s Day ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI Got a trunk full of trouble and not too much time I’ve gotta get rid of this problem of mine Got a pick and a shovel and a sack of quick lime And we’re heading out to the old Dalton Pines Ten years I festered ten years to the day Ten years of hell never gave you away Waiting to celebrate presidents day But where they lay buried you never did say A tough mother fucker but where did it get you? In less than a week everyone will forget you So tell me right now where you hid Grant’s tomb Where’s Jackson’s Hole where’s Lincoln’s bedroom You can’t take it with and you’re going soon The blood on my fingers is crusted and brown You squealed like a pig as I whittled you down But you kept the secret that I never found have fun while you rot in your burial mound All of those years that I spent in that cell All of the chances I gave you to tell All of that money you buried so well It ain’t gonna do you no good While you’re burning in Hell

THE PEQUOT DANCE HALL ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I took a gun put it in my pants And I went one last time to meet my baby the Friday dance She was with him they twirling across the floor I couldn’t take it not anymore I pulled the trigger 6 times and fled I left their bleedin’ cheatin’ bodies just lyin’ dead She broke my heart with all her lyin’ I wonder if she thought about that while she was dying Every Friday night she used to meet me at the Pequot Dance hall And the band would always play our favorite song Somewhere along the way we just stopped dancing Somewhere along the way everything just turned out wrong They tracked me down they took me in Looks like it’s time for me to pay for all my sins The judge said guilty said I must die So today they strap me down it’s time for me to fry I pulled that trigger I shot that gun So pull that lever and I’ll dance until I’m done done A million volts and I will be gone But down there at the dance hall the band keeps playing on

Boneyard 03:10
BONEYARD ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I begged her baby please don’t go Can’t live without you don’t you know She just said no pushed me away I knew I had to make her stay Tears in her eyes she said to me It’s over darlin can’t you see I swung that shovel swung it hard I buried her in the boneyard People wondered where she went But I showed the letters that she sent From the city where she went to stay She said that she’d be back some day So now it’s only her and I Don’t worry bout those other guys There’s no one else no one but me And that’s how it will always be Now I come to visit everyday But she ain’t got too much to say All she did was lie back then then She’ll never lie to me again She was the only girl for me And that’s how it will always be She broke my heart still got the scar I buried her in the boneyard

Good and Evil ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI They say you’re never more than two steps ahead of the Devil You’re never more than one prayer from the Lord It’s a tightrope that you’re walking between goodness and evil Sometimes good and evil is a double edge sword Don’t ask for the answers I’ve got only questions Don’t ask for directions ‘cuz I’ve lost my way I made my decision now I sit here waiting For satan to call for the soul he has claimed They say you never really know where you’re going I’ll be gaddamned if I can remember where the hell you’ve been Wherever I’m headin’ I’m probably better off not knowin’ There will be plenty of time when I get there to relive my sins Next stop is Heaven ain’t somethin that I’ll be hearin’ Next stop is Hell’s just a tired and worn out cliche Next stop’s the last stop is really all that I am fearin It was a hell of a ride but I guess that it’s high time I pay I wish that you could be around to tell my story I wish that you could tell them all for me But without you this tragic tale’s got no ending Without you there ain’t no goddamn song to sing So close those eyes and say a prayer to Jesus Bite down on this and picture your Heaven’s King I’ll send you home in little bitty pieces Don’t worry my darlin’ cause I won’t feel a thing
15.
To Hold You Again ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI You left me standing alone with my heart in my hand Dripping blood on the ground Soaking into the sand Left me standing alone Watched you walking away Do you ever look back Ever remember that day Do I ever cross your mind Do you ever wanna see me again Now the days drag by And they turn into years I could sit here and cry But I run Out of tears Just an old man waiting For the end of forever I guess that I’ll be waiting Until the twelvth of never Waiting and wondering If I’ll ever see you again I wonder what you’re doing now Did you find what you needed What you couldn’t find in me I wonder if he’s good to you Is everything that he is Everything I couldn’t be I wonder when your memory Will set me free I wonder what it’d feel like To hold you again Would you feel like a lover Would you feel like a friend Would you feel like a stranger Would you feel like a ghost Would it feel like a parasite Returning to it’s host Would it feel like a memory Would it feel like it felt back then again I guess it doesn’t matter I guess we’ll never know I guess it’s just the way This fucking loser’s story goes But if you ever get to wondering And if this old man’s still around I can’t imagine it would be too hard To track me down If you ever wanna find me It’d be really good to see you again

Ghost 04:31
GHOST ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI She was the one that I loved best I loved her more than all the rest I guess I didn’t pass the test She left me here a’cryin’ She was the one who I adored The only thing that I lived for I guess she couldn’t take no more She left me here for dyin’ Now she’s just a memory She’ll be forever haunting me Maybe death will set me free There ain’t no harm in tryin’ So raise your mugs and make a toast To the girl I loved the most And make another to her ghost That’s down in Hell there fryin’
