about

Wrote most of these while I’ve been sick, recorded them all on a phone,
Sorry about the crappy sound, and the crappy playing, and the crappy singing,and the ceiling fan, and the loud finger thumping, and all the other noises. maybe we’ll rerecord them someday if I ever feel better.
...probably not.

Track Name: Jesus Please Come On Down
Jesus, Please Come On Down
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI
Jesus, please come on down
Please come and see me when you're in town
I'm waiting, waiting around
Please come on down
Come on down when you're in town
Jesus, please lord stop by
I'm all alone, I don't know why
Maybe you'd like a beer
Why don't you come down here?
Come down here
Come on down
Jesus, I'd like to talk
Why don't you come see me
We can go for a walk
Down the road we'll walk a ways
And you can take me up your highway
Lord come on down


Jesus I'm so confused
Why don't you come and see me
Tell me a little bit of truth
Old Scratch tells me that he knows all the answers
Says he's gonna set me free, lord come on down
Jesus, don't let him win
I love her Lord, tell me why is that a sin?
The clock up on my wall is winding down
Oh help me please Lord come on down
Jesus, don't let him win
I love her Lord, tell me why is that a sin?
The clock up on the wall is winding down
You gotta help me out here, Jesus
You gotta come on down
Please come on down
When you're in town
Lord come on down
Track Name: Cut Me Up
Cut Me Up ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies

Pretty soon they’re gonna cut me up
Cut me up into pieces
Then we’ll see what’s left of me
When they’re all through

Pretty soon they’re gonna cut me up
Cut me up into pieces
Then we’ll see what’s left of me
When they’re all through
What am I gonna do?

When the cutting is all done
Will you still be my only one
Can you still love
what they’ve left
behind
This Frankenstein________________________________________

*Pretty soon there will be less of me
I fear they’re gonna make a goddamn mess of me
It’s not my dreams it’s just my nightmares
All coming true

I love you more every day
No matter what they hack away
I’ll love you till there’s nothing
Left of me
But a memory

Seems I finally started living
It’s too soon to be dying
When they’re all done with their cutting
I hope there’s something
left of me

*Pretty soon they’re gonna cut me up
Cut me up into pieces
Will you still love what they leave behind...
Track Name: Don't Let The Devil Cast His Shadow On My Grave
Don’t Let The Devil Cast His Shadow On My Grave ©2017 Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave
Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave
Don’t give him what he wants
Don’t give into his taunts
Even though my wretched soul will not be saved
Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave

Open that whiskey up and pour it in the hole
Open that whiskey up and pour it in the hole
Let it seep into the ground
Where you lay my body down
Pour that whiskey let it quench my thirsty soul
Open that whiskey up and pour it in the hole

Do not kneel down don’t say no prayers for me
Do not kneel down don’t say no prayers for me
God left me all alone
Let me wither to the bone
Never gave a damn as far as I can see
So do not kneel down don’t say no prayers for me

Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave
Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave
Don’t give him what he wants
Don’t give into his taunts
Even though my wretched soul might not be saved
Don’t let the devil cast his shadow on my grave
Track Name: I'm A Monster Now
I’m A Monster Now ©Angry Johnny

I remember when I was young
I thought that I was gonna
Be something someday

I was young and I was dumb
Wasted my time
As the years just slipped away

Never took life serious
Drank myself delirious
I guess I didn’t care

Trouble was not hard to find
All those friends I left behind
But it was me that was going nowhere

I’m a monster now
Just decaying remnants of a dream
I’m a monster now
Look away there ain’t nothing to see

Life’s got a funny way of catching up
Once you’ve drunk from the devil’s cup
There’s nowhere you can hide

There’s nothing left it’s all been spent
People wonder where I went
They just figure that I died

I was never worth a damn
I finally see just what I am
It’s not a pretty sight

In time you get what’s coming
When you’re too tired to keep running
The universe will make things right

I’m a monster now
Just decaying remnants of an idiot’s dream
I’m a monster now
Turn your head and look away there ain’t nothing left to see
Track Name: Never
NEVER -©Angry Johnny


If I had to do it over what would I change
The whole damn thing just seems s goddamns strange
We don’t know a thing
‘Bout nothin’

I’d probably fuck things up so real bad
Still lose my mom and still lose me dad
And probably never meet you
Never meet

Everything else still be the same
Still have the sick still have the pain
But this time I’d be alone without you

Things are awful funny in a way
An unfunny bad joke that people say
Can’t shake the bad just the good
Even though you always said you would

Roll the dice just once take the shit you get
Whatever you thought close you eyes and forget
Just say fuck and grit your teeth
Just a crap shoot

Things would be different but you wouldn’t know
You’d figure it’s just the way everything goes
You’d be just like you are
A spec‘min in a jar
Never knowin’
Track Name: Devil The Coward
DEVIL THE COWARD ©Angry Johnny

Has the devil ever come out to fight like a man
Always lurking in the shadows out of sight
He’ll trick you and he’ll steal your soul if he can
But he’s a coward and he won’t come out and fight

Watch out if you get offers from a well dressed man
On your darkest hour of your darkest night
He’ll promise you the world with an ink quill in his hand
Make you think that you can finally see the light

Run like hell and don’t look back ‘cause it’s a scam
He’ll slit your finger say “it’s time for you to write”
Take it from a fool that knows a fool is all I am
I signed it thirty years ago tonight

So I drink my final cup of anodyne
Waiting for the henchmen he is sending
Funny feeling when you’re all run out of time
And this wasted life you’ve led is finally ending

Still even when the devil’s won hands down
I tell him “Scratch you must be fucking kidding”
You are a coward to the core spreading disease and death and war
You send a toady up to do your fucking bidding

So be careful what you wish for who you trust
Even on your darkest night and darkest hour
Don’t give in to pride and greed hatred and lust
And just remember that the devil is a coward
Track Name: On Death
On Death ©Angry Johnny

Will I remember when I’m gone will I be dust
Will I remember love and hate sorrow and lust
Will I meet anyone I know will I just drift where the wind blows
Will they remember me with love or just disgust

It’d be a comfort to believe the day I die
That there’s a man up there just waiting in the sky
And though that fairy tale’s old with twenty billion copies sold
When you break it down it’s nothing but a lie

Will I be gone for good or will something remain
Will the life I’ve lived be nothing but in vain
Will I fade into the past in a world where nothing lasts
And be washed away like dog shit by the rain

Will I leave a mark for somebody to find
In years to come cross anybody’s mind
After everyone I’ve known has decayed down to the bone
Will there be anything at all that’s left behind

Will I cry out for Jesus when I’m going
Better to believe a lie than just not knowing
Or will the devil come a calling on the day that I am falling
Will I hear trumpets or just hungry ravens crowing

All one can do is wait around and wonder
And feel that chill brought on by distant thunder
Live and love here while you can try to be a better man
Even if it does not matter once you’re six feet under
Track Name: Only Darkness
ONLY DARKNESS ©Angry Johnny

I don’t plan to but I might
Die tomorrow or tonight
Won’t be heading toward no light
Only darkness waits for me

I don’t plan to but I may
Live to fight another day
Doesn’t matter either way
Still the darkness waits for me

I don’t wanna go away
Hope today won’t be the day
If I had my druthers I would stay
Far from the dark that waits for me

When your number’s up it’s up
Can’t drink from an empty cup
Will the end be so abrupt
When the darkness comes for me

I could pray a worthless prayer
To a god that doesn’t care
A god that isn’t even there
Just the darkness waits for me
Track Name: Sing Me That Love Song
Sing Me That Love Song ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies

Could you sing me a love song while I lay here dying
Could you sing me that love song again
Would you sing me that love song don’t waste my time crying
Please sing that pretty love song again

Do you remember the first time you sang me that love song
It seems like a lifetime ago
Do you remember the first time you sang me that love song
I swore that I would never ever go

Now I lay here bleeding breaking my promise
Darling I cannot stay here
Now that all that I’m needing is you here beside me
Please sing that pretty love song in my ear

Oh we had some times yes we had adventures
We had the whole world in our hands
Now I lay here dying and I feel I’m fading
Please sing me that love song again

So sing me that love song sing it so tender
Sing till my soul does depart
Oh I love you darling please always remember
There was only you in my heart
Track Name: The Devil's Calling
The Devil’s Calling ©Angry Johnny
Bonesaw Lullaby BMI


When you’re sipping raison jack out of an old milk jug
And your demons bounce right back after you fought ‘em
And you’re snorting spilled cocaine out of a dirty old motel rug
You might think that you finally hit rock bottom

But there’s still a long long way to fall
Before you finally hit the ground
Once you thought you had it all
But the only thing you found
Was that loser in the mirror
Just a sad old drunken clown
Can you tell me why the hell you even bother

When your hearts been broke so many times it’s just one big old scar
And the memories you have are better left forgotten
When the friends you had pretend they can’t remember who you are
You realize that you are all alone

And there’s still a long long way to fall
Before it’s said and done
You’ve been falling all your life
You’ve been failing everyone
So many battles lost
So few that you have won
And you don’t have the strength to fight another

When you’re crying in your beer but nobody is here
There’s nobody that wants to hear your story
When little kids throw rocks yell Get your drunk ass outa here
And you think that life can’t kick you anymore

There’s still a long long way to fall
‘for you finally get to Hell
You’ve been falling so damn long
Can’t remember when you fell
Forever you’ll be falling
After you bid the world farewell
If you listen you can hear the devil calling
Track Name: Walk Me To The Graveyard Baby
WALK ME TO THE GRAVEYARD BABY


Walk me to the graveyard baby sing a pretty song
As they lower down my coffin please forgive me for my wrongs

Walk me to the graveyard baby leave me there to rot
Please remember all the good times we had let the bad ones be forgot


Walk me to the graveyard baby
Tell me I’m your one and only
Even though we know that it’s not true
Forever I’ll be loving only you

Wear a pretty little black dress baby and a ribbon in your hair
One last time pretend you love me pretend that you still care

As they lower down my coffin baby try to look a little sad
Try to think about the good times baby forget about the bad


Walk me to the graveyard baby
Tell me that you’ll always love me
Tell me that forever you’ll be mine
Leave me here forever with that lie
Track Name: What Comes After
What Comes After ©Angry Johnny

What comes after life death comes after life
What comes after death I don’t know

What comes after life death comes after life
What comes after death where do we go

What comes after words that you cannot take back
The pain you cause remains long after you have gone

What happens when you die the world keeps turning round
It doesn’t even notice it just goes on and on

What comes after love when everything goes bad
Hate comes after love lose everything you had

What comes after this is it blissful emptiness
Or a trail of your sins and the hurt left in your wake

What becomes of one who never cared ‘bout anyone
Just people happy that you’re gone never think of you again
Track Name: Let The Wind
LET THE WIND ©Angry Johnny


Was this it was I finally dead
Or just a dream elec-tricks in my head
A hoax on my feeble brain
Another dry run

Don’t know what day this is
Don’t know what way home is
I used to pray back then
Not anymore

Take this god and shove it
Find something and love it
Hopefully a someone
Not a made up story

Scatter places I’ve been way back
In places I have been pitch black
I was here before
It didn’t hurting quite so bad

My recollection is not all there
I won’t be needing you to pall bear
Burn me down to ash
Let the wind take me home
Track Name: Punch
PUNCH ©Angry Johnny

I died again last night but only in a dream
Good practice for when the time comes or so it would seem
But every time I wake up there’s a little more of me gone
Some day there won’t be enough of me left to carry on

Some days are ok most days feel like hell
If the devil drops by got a soul I could sell
Might as well go on back to the butts and the booze
The way that I see it ain’t got nothing to lose

If this is what they call healing I’d rather be sick
I still got all the pain I still feel the crick
Don’t mean to complain but I can hear that clock tic
A foul stinking candle burning fast at both wicks

So I roll this bullet between finger and thumb
Well aware I am far from the only sick one
But sometimes I hear the easy way calling my name
Still I couldn’t do that to the ones that I love
I could not do that to her

So bring it on mother fucker I’ll spit in your face
You’ve taken my pride you’ve robbed me of grace
But I’m still hobbling along gonna finish this race
If nothing else I can still take a punch

I can still take a punch I can still take a hit
I’ll take what you got you miserable shit
Even though I’m not sure what it’s all been for
I’ll take it until I can’t take anymore
Track Name: Pick Me Up
PICK ME UP ©Angry Johnny

Pick me up if you could before you go
Sometimes I have trouble getting off the floor
Never thought there was a speed slower than slow
Nothing surprises me anymore

Kiss me if you could before you go
You never know what kiss will be the last
Only after do we ever get to know
Only after everything goes by too fast

Say you love me one more time before you go
So I’ll have something to hold onto anyway
So I’ll have something that I positively know
So I will know it even if today’s the day

I’ll see you later on
I don’t plan on being gone
But if I am just remember
Everything you can

So pick me up one more time before you go
Help me get up off this goddamn floor
You are everything I need to know
Everything to me forevermore
Track Name: Saved My Soul
SAVED MY SOUL ©Angry Johnny

Weaker than yesterday
Bet I’ll be weaker still tomorrow
Feeling helpless feeling worthless
Not carrying my weight

Skinnier than yesterday
Living on time that’s been borrowed
Sometimes I fear I’ll disappear
Feels like it’s all too late

What happened to my yesterdays
Where did all the time go
All my memories will be forgot
The moment That I am gone

Never thought that I would be this weak
I thought I would be much stronger
Never been so goddamn tired
I can feel that old reaper closing in

With his finger on my shoulder
Chills my body to the bone now
Hold me tight my love I’m freezing
Then Let me go and send me home

I’m gonna miss you babe
Gonna miss everything about you
You are everything to me
But now I must go

All these years I’ve been adrift
Then I finally found you
Out of nowhere you appeared
Appeared and saved my soul
Saved my soul
Track Name: Keep Crawling
KEEP CRAWLING ©Angry Johnny

I’m on a downhill slide...
Got the devil by my side
Yelling faster motherfucker
Just let go and let it ride

No way out for me but down
I was everybody’s clown
Danced for nickels dimes and whiskey
Now there’s nobody around

Now I cannot stop backsliding
Come and get me I ain’t hiding
Let the devil do the driving
In this hearse that I am riding

Guess I must’ve had it coming
Guess there ain’t no point in running
Couldn’t get far anyway
I am hobbled by the numbing

My weakened legs can barely hold me
It’s not how I thought it would be
Thought that I would make some noise
Wonder can anybody hear me

Yes I’ll try to keep on going
Just go where the water’s flowing
There’ll be time enough for dying
It will only take a moment

I’ll keep crawling with a smile
Can’t be more than a few miles
Taste the lips that keep me going
Think I’ll stay a little while
