Track Name: Done My Time In Hell
When I was a little boy I remember well
I remember years of joy but now I’m stuck in Hell

Now I’m stuck in Hell and I know it all too well
Oh take me back to that little boy
Please save me from my Hell

When I grew into a man I thought life would be so good
I’d find love and life would be so grand I really thought it would

But now all I am is bummin’ ever since I lost my woman
Lord please send her back to me
Save me from my Hell

She said that she would never leave she broke my heart in two
Now I sit and I drink and I grieve I don’t know what to do

She promised me a lifetime
Then she told me it was not the right time
Lord please help please pardon me
I done my time in Hell
I said oh Lord please help please pardon me
I done my time in Hell
I done my time in Hell
I done my time in Hell
Track Name: Pomeroy Mountain
I took her up the mountain but I came down alone
Now the judge tells me tomorrow I must die
She was the only woman I never could let go
You can ask me but I couldn’t tell you why

Heard ‘bout her and that Jim Butler out behind old Johnson’s store
And after that I never was the same
They found Jim Butler lyin’ in a puddle on the floor
A splittin’ maul was buried in his brain

Folks said she was a bad girl but I loved her anyway
And every sin against me I forgave
But something deep inside my soul just snapped in half that day
And now my love is lying in her grave

The preacher asked me son have you made peace with your Lord
I said what the Hell’s He ever done for me
He tol me blasphemy won’t pay the toll that opens Heaven’s door
I told him that’s OK ‘cuz Hell let’s you in free

Way up on Pomeroy Mountain the laurel is in bloom
It’s coverin’ the hills like fallen snow
We went there for the last time that Sunday afternoon
I gave her one last kiss and I let her go

Folks said she was......

Tomorrow when they’re slippin’ that noose over my head
I’ll look out and I’ll see my mamma cry
Take me up to Pomeroy Mountain when my body’s cold and dead
And bury me right there beneath the sky
Track Name: Did I See You?
Did I see you the other day, on the corner in the rain.
I think I saw you but I’m not sure, in a bar room on the floor.
Did I see you in a dream, in a night mare or in between.
Did I see you in a cloud, you were cryin’ and the rain was pouring down.

Tell me was that you
was anything you told me ever true.
I’ll tell you that was me.
That was me with a rope ‘round my neck hangin’ from a tree.

You had a nightmare, you saw my face.
Another time another place
You can’t go back there, I can’t move on.
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.

So don’t be telling me not to be sad
We pay a price when love goes bad.
You made your choice, good luck to you
You think love means nothing, well you ain’t got a clue.

Goodbye good luck to you.
Was anything you told me ever true.
I’ll tell you that was me.
That was me with a rope ‘round my neck hangin’ from a tree.

Tell me it was fun.
Tell me every single night while you watch the setting sun.
Tell someone else I can’t hear you no more
Tell the next poor sucker that wanders through your door.

Did I see you The other day on the corner in the rain
Did I see you in a cloud you were cryin’ and the rain was pouring down
You were cryin’ and the rain was pouring down
You were crying.
Track Name: Funny Thing About Heroes
Last time I saw Danny he was havin’ trouble breathin’ a bullet in his
belly and a couple fingers gone.
I thought about him dying like a dog as I was leaving but he’s the one
who always said “Take the money and run.”

A perfect plan is perfect up until something goes wrong like a cowboy in a licker store playin’ hero for a day.
Funny thing ‘bout heroes they don’t last very long I said “Danny you’re a goner man I’m sorry I can’t stay.”

Seventeen months later I’m drinkin’ here in Tulsa I hear a voice behind me say one move and it’s good bye.
He tells me “Jack I cannot tell how good it is to see you remember me you left me in that licker store to die.”
The bartender stands frozen like a deer caught in the headlights I ask him for a couple shots for me and my old friend.
He pours a couple bourbons his old hands they are a’tremblin’ I turn around real slow and I say “Danny how ya been?”

He grins and takes the bourbon says “You know I’m gonna kill ya.” I drink my shot and nod say “What the Hell it’s only fair.” I tell him that I’m sorry that I left him for the buzzards a pistol shot rings out I see a coeboy standing there.
Danny’s on the floor bleedin’ heavy from his belly, last thing the cowboy hears is my Colt singin’ it’s song.
The bartender ain’t movin’ he says “Man I ain’t no hero.” I tell him “Funny thing ‘bout heroes they don’t last very long.”

Last time I saw Danny he was dying there in Tulsa the money from the register got me over the state line.
Last thing I told Danny was “Man it was good to see ya, when you’re feelin’ better you should look me up sometime.”
Track Name: Valentine's Day
Tell me what’s so happy about valentine’s day
Tell me what’s so happy ‘bout you going away
You said I love you darlin’ but I just cannot stay
Tell me what’s so happy about valentine’s day

They’ve got cards and candy and roses galore
You can leave that valentine shit down at the store
While they’re mopping up the mess left on my floor
Put a wreath and a big black ribbon on my front door

Gonna lay me out in my very best cheap suit
They’ll have a big buffet of crackers and cheese and fruit
I’d love to hear the eulogy I’ll bet it’s gonna be a hoot
But there’s a bullet in the gun in my hand beggin’ me too shoot

Believed you when you told me
Our love would last forever
It’s all water underneath the bridge I’m burning down

said I was your one and only
Until you found somebody better
Then you left me for the newest boy in town
Track Name: The Berkshire Bowling League
Today CW turned himself in for the killing of Mike Lepine
He beat his skull in with a bowling pin when he caught him with his Irene
Mike and CW were the best of friends whatever the Hell that means
One took the other’s woman one took the other’s life
With friends like that who needs enemies

Well tonight’s the big bowling tournament but we’re our two best bowlers shy
But we’ll give it our all do the best that we can but I won’t tell you no lie
We’re gonna get our sorry asses kicked man we don’t stand a chance
Mike and CW didn’t have much brains but when they rolled that ball
They could sure make them pins dance

Well Mike was a loser his whole damn life and his demise was overdue
And CW had him a no good wife from the second she said I do
But there was no sense in telling CW it would only cause him pain
And we needed him and Mike to keep on throwin’ them strikes
With them boys on our team we owned them goddamn lanes

Well thanks to Irene our reign is through ain’t no trophy for us this year
We finished up last now there’s nothing to do but drown our sorrows in some beer
So let’s drink to old CW and poor dead Mike Lepine
The two best bowlers two worst best friends the Berkshire Bowling League
has ever seen...
