Pearly White Truck
Hey there kids! I’s be Jimmy Fox
And I represents Big Energy
Your comfort counts, and my money talks
I’ll be your Dick, you’re my Cheney

Cause there’s fire on the mountain
Lightin’ up the hills
Fire on the mountain
Disturbing my still
There’s a river of green flowing
Right out of town
Jimmy says "We’ll all be millionaires!"
I like that sound, I kinda like that sound, like that sound!

Hey there kids, you know I’m be Jimmy Fox
I eats my bacon with my bagel and lox
My truck’s as big as Texas, so pearly white
Lit up with money, no we’re goin’ out tonight

Cause there’s fire on the mountain
Lightin’ up the hills
Fire on the mountain
Disturbing my still
There’s a river of greed(?) that’s flowing
Right through town
Jimmy says it’s gonna be on him tonight
He’s buyin’ the next round (gonna bark him down!)
I like that sound

Hey there partner, call me Mister Fox
I’m at your door to wheel and deal
I needs me a place to lay my weary pipes
And pal, it’s right there in your field

Cause there’s fire on the mountain
Lightin’ up the hills
Fire on the mountain
Disturb my still
There’s a river of green flowing
Right out of town
He says he’s just got to cut a few trees town

Hey there folks! You can call me Colonel Fox
Help me salute your Red, White and Blue
Three cheers for Lincoln, oh he freed my soul
Got them Yankee ass in tow!

Cause there’s fire on the mountain
Lightin’ up the hills
Fire on the mountain
Disturb my still
There’s a river of greed(?) that’s flowing
Right through this town
Jimmy says, "It’s all about America!"
Oh yea, I’m not gonna let her down
I’m with Jimmy, it’s all about that Red, White and Blue


My Sweet Little Sunshine
Yes, it’s this little girl Who gives me hope
And with my demons she helps me cope
Been with her since day one
My heart she has completely won
I am hers, she is mine
And why I call her
My Sweet Little Sunshine

I am there for her through it all
Just so I can be there to catch her when she falls
I know all her secrets, she knows mine
That’s why I call her
My Sweet Little Sunshine
That’s why I call her
My Sweet Little Sunshine

She’s love to fall asleep in my arms
Because she knows I will protect her from any harm
It’s in my arms she will stay

Now I am there for her through it all
Just so I can be there to catch her when she falls
We never like to be apart
That’s when there’s something missing from our hearts
I am her guardian angel, she is mine
And that’s why I call her
My Sweet Little Sunshine


Volvo Idle in the Tall Grass
Volvo’s idled in the tall grass
Baby’s really made to last
Fender’s rusted and the radio’s busted
Nobody starts to turn her key
She can’t be trusted
Headin’ for that interstate
She starts to shimmy and shake

Volvo’s idled in the tall grass
Baby’s really made to last
Throwout chatters and the rearview shatters
Nobody starts to turn her key
It doesn’t matter
Heading’ for the edge of town
Acting like she’s gonna break down
A little spark’l get her started
A love departed

Volvo’s idled in the tall grass
Baby’s really made to last
Fender’s rusted and the radio’s busted
Nobody starts to turn her key
She can’t be trusted
Heading’ for the edge of town
Acting like she’s gonna break down
Abandoned, broken-hearted
Lonely, love departed
Dragged to the edge of town
Don’t know if I’ll ever get her started


Give Me Back My Cadillac
My cup has been to overflow, the Flood
Has swept me off of my game
I thought a little more would cause me no pain
Beside me here beneath all Heaven and Earth
Lazy Atlas bargins a trade
Cast out to the last outpost he begs

Give me back my Cadillac
No other tin box fits my frame
My 450 hums just like a honeybee
Please! Don’t take my Cadillac away! No! No! No! No!

My daddy drove for forty days then parked
Out there where the buffalo roam
He said, "On this endless highway we’ll make us a home"
Now jacked-up, hubcaps strewn about the ground the shell
Like snakeskin lies abandoned, its fate
Cyclops in his rollback hauls it away

Give me back my Cadillac
No other tin box fits my frame
My 450 hums just like a honeybee
Please! Don’t take my Cadillac away! No! No! No!


Bette's Leap
[instrumental wildness!]


Momma's Gone
Who’s gonna pick up my clothes
Who’s gonna mend my tees
Who’s gonna feed my dog, Old Red, that snarly dog
Who’s gonna wash my hog

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, like a tumbleweed blowing in the wind
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, and the heartache will begin
                                                     the pain of loneliness begins
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone ain’t never comin’ back again
No, my Momma’s gone

Who’s gonna roll my ???? when I wanna go fishin’
Who’s gonna roll a few joints for me, when I’m wishin’
Who’s gonna feed my kids when they’re standin’ at the table
Who’s gonna cover my bail when I’m unable

She’s gone, she’s gone, like a tumbleweed in the wind
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone ain’t never gonna come back again
She’s gone, she’s gone, the pain of loneliness begins
She’s gone, my Momma’s gone

Like a tumbleweed in the wind
She’s gone, she’s gone, ain’t never gonna come back again
The pain of loneliness
Took the Greyhound right out o’ town
She’s gone, she’s gone, my Momma’s gone

Who’s gonna give a damn when I come stumbling in and
Who’s gonna fetch my truck when I’m stuck in the can
Who’s gonna pick up my clothes when ????
Who’s gonna make my tea ?????

She’s gone, she’s gone, like a tumbleweed in the wind
She’s gone, she’s gone, ain’t never gonna comin’ back again
She’s gone, she’s gone, ain’t never gonna comin’ back again
Momma’s gone . . . and she’s never gonna come back again . . .


Luck's Coming My Way
I’m the one to tell you what is right or wrong
That situation eluded me
It’s like weighing in some shadowy morning(?) shape
Digging in a midnight dream
But some meaning I can read from the ruts in the road
I can hear exactly what they say
Luck’s comin’ my way

I tow the line in the mind as wonderin’ why my feet
Are still standing on the side of the road
I been watching what is said as something skeleton eyes
Blinded by the ?????
All the hustlin’ and bustlin’ the burning desire to jump - Be done
I say, "Luck’s comin’ my way . . . Luck’s comin’ my way"

Now my main man complimented me, together we weathered it all
Like prison is ???? poetry to who’s on the other side of the wall
Twenty year behind them rusted bars, then click the key, I’m free
What can I say . . .

I’ve seen old men counting up their coming days
Rockin’ in their rockin’ chairs
Digging’ on them golden oldies 60’s hits
Just waiting for the mail to get there
But I don’t look back, I look straight ahead
The reason I get up every day . . . Luck’s comin’ my way


New Guardianship
The sirens came a’screamin’ with the police in tow
To save Rupunzel from captivity
Man this is a way of life that comforts the soul
Where forgotten is of speaking dreams

Take it away, take it away
Ah . . .
Take it away, take it away, guardianship
Take it away, take it away
Take it away, little darling, your guardianship
Take it away, take it away
Take it away, your guardianship
Take it away

The movers and the breakers they’re all grinding their gears
Alabama bound with children in tow
A promised land waiting there which nobody feels
Where forgotten is all ???? in woe

Take it away, take it away
Take it away, take it away, guardianship
Take it away, take it away
Take it away, little darling, your guardianship
Take it away, take it away
Take it away, your guardianship
Take it away, take it away
Take it away, your guardianship
You know you gotta take it away

I got my feet on the ground, finding my way
I got my head in the clouds how far away
A fish frozen in water in limbo I stay
Where forgotten dreams of yesterday


A Circus Song
When the circus comes to town I’d like to be there, Yes I do
When that clown jumps up, up Upon his rope high up above the crowd
I feel like I’m up there too
Balancing upon a string promising to do its best to keep its tension bound true

With a monkey on his back
A big stick and a stack of pylons piled upon his head
It’s step by step by step by step by step by step by step
Oh, darling, believe it,
When you look up there and what it is you’re seeing
Cause at some height above your head
I’ll share the view I’ll share the dread
I’m caught between the terror and the thrill
But as I’m looking down upon the silence all around
A calm occurs, I’m there with you

When the circus comes to town I’d like to be there, Yes I do
When that motorcycle madman melds machine and man in midair
I’m in motion too
Whirling round a cage around a stage around the three rings
A ring of fire jump through too

With a monkey on his back
A big stick, a stack of pylons piled upon his head
It’s step by step by step by step by step by step by step
Oh, darling, believe it,
When you look up there and what it is you’re seeing
Cause at some height above your head
I’ll share the view I’ll share the dread
I’m caught between the terror and the thrill
But as I’m looking down upon the silence all around
A calm occurs, I’m there with you

With a monkey on his back
A big stick, and a stack of pylons piled upon his head
It’s step by step by step by step by step by step by step


Locked Up in the Safe with Julie
Locked up in the safe with Julie
Locked up in the safe with Julie
Throw away the key
If you’re looking for me
I’ll be behind that twenty inch door
Locked up with Julie

Will I ever see fluffy, will I ever see the day
Will I ever see the nighttime and another kind of day

Locked up in the safe with Julie
Locked up in the safe with Julie
