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

Cut Me Up 03:41
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...

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

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

Never 02:00
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’

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

On Death 02:41
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

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
9.
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

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
11.
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
12.
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
13.
Let The Wind 02:31
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
14.
Punch 03:06
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
15.
Pick Me Up 02:59
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
16.
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

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

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.
