Track Name: Alexis' Farm
Alexis’ Farm (retread of Robert Zimmerman’s “Maggie’s Farm”)
05/12/10 - NMB


I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
Alexis kicks my ass
You know she kicks it nite and day
She kicks it every time I’m here
And she kicks it when I’m far away
But she does it in such a loving way
No, I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more

I ain’t gonna work for the church no more
I ain’t gonna work for the church no more
I’m tired of them telling me things
That I should and shouldn’t do
When you know they’re doing things
That are no good for me and you
Just ask the children if you need a clue
No I ain’t gonna work for the church no more
Or the Boy Scouts of America

I ain’t gonna work for the republican’s no more
I ain’t gonna work for the republican’s no more
I’m tired of hating people
Just because they ain’t like me
You know if guys could get pregnant
You get an abortion at Micky D’s
And if you’re gay that’s okay by me
No I ain’t gonna work for the republican’s no more
Or Chick-ful-o-Shit

I ain’t gonna work for the drug companies no more
I ain’t gonna work for the drug companies no more
I’m tired of all their drugs
All the drugs they’re sellin me
When all I really want to do
Is smoke some good old THC
And you know god gave us that for free
No I ain’t gonna work for the drug companies no more
Or Monsanto

(break)

I ain’t gonna work for the war department no more
I ain’t gonna work for the war department no more
I’m tired of killing people
Killing everyone I see
Killing for a bunch of people
Who don’t give two shits about me
Like Exxon-Mobil, Chevron and BP
No I ain’t gonna work for the war department no more
Or the One Percent

I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
Alexis kicks my ass
You know she kicks it nite and day
She kicks it every time I’m here
And she kicks it when I’m far away
But she does it in such a loving way
I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
No I ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more
Ain’t gonna work on Alexis’ Farm no more

Track Name: Mary Mary Quite Contrary
Mary Mary Quite Contrary (for Enrique Batista - anarchist)
02/18/12 - FtLd


Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Who plants your seeds
Who pulls your weeds
Who waters rakes and hoes
Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Who handles pesticides
Who must fertilize
Whose lungs are exposed
So Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Who keeps your animals caged
Who feeds them their own waste
Who breaks their backs and bones
Oh Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow

(break)

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Who crawls on the ground
Who keeps your profits sound
Whose chained to your company store
Oh Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Whose your slave
Who is your human trade
Who do you own... oh no no
Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow

(break - first verse)

Track Name: Whiskey River Road
Whiskey River Road (B version)
original - 03/04/12 - FtLd
B version - 12/31/12 - FtLd


Molly said it’s time
For you to move again
I can see your bags are packed
Though you got nothing in your hands
So you must be traveling down
That Whiskey River Road again

Now the seasons had been changing
For quite some time now
I could feel it in the wind
And I could see it in her brow
And I know that I’ll be traveling down
That Whiskey River Road again

And I never been to Texas
And I never been to Spain
But I can’t find where I’m going
With a ticket in my hand
Cause the road comes round behind you
To take you where you been
As it carries your through summer
Winter fall and the spring
So I guess I’ll just keep traveling down
That Whiskey River Road again

And the bottle is your ticket
And that ticket is a thief
Who steals all of your memories
And then leaves you in the street
Oh you know that’s how it is
On that Whiskey River Road my friend

And I cannot remember
The last place I have been
And I know one day her memory
Will fade to the bourbon and the gin
And I’ll never see my Molly
On that Whiskey River Road again

Cause I never been to London....

But Molly she refuses
To let a tear fall from her eyes
She’s been through this before
And she knows all the reasons why
But that none of it matters when
That Whiskey River Road’s calling

So I start to say I’ll see you
But I know that it’s a lie
So I turn and ran away
So that she will not see me cry
Cause I know I’ll never stop traveling down
That Whiskey River Road again

And I never been to Paris....

Yeah I guess I’ll just keep traveling down
That Whiskey River Road again

39.46.57 - 39.47.59

Track Name: Larry's All Nite Smorgasbord
Larry’s All Nite Smorgasbord
12/12/12 - FtLd


In the jowls of heaven
In the bowels of heaven
They’ll chew you up
Then spit you out once more
That’s why I’m here
At Larry’s Smorgasbord

In the choirs of heaven
There’s no room for liars in heaven
That’s why I have a reservation
Cause it’s all I can afford
Yeah it’s gonna be alright
If we stay here until the day lite
At Larry’s All Nite Smorgasbord

Cause Larry he got meatballs
And he’s cooking up some spam
He’ll put Alpo in a taco
If you just pay him what you can
It’s not your misdeeds
But what you can’t see
In every goddam thing that you eat
At Larry’s Good Nite Smorgasbord

In the weigh stations of heaven
They’ll strip all your assignations
And tell you it’s a game we don’t play no more
So that’s why you’re here
Instead of playing up there
So please pass the salt and pepper
If you would my dear
At Larry’s All Nite Smorgasbord

So you stole a little cash
And now you wanna little bite
But there’s only one place left to go
That’s open every nite
And if you can’t pay
That’s really okay
Cause they know
You’re coming back anyhow anyways
To Larry’s Good Bye Smorgasbord

All the undertakers in heaven
Can’t wait to fry your bacon
For everything you did without remorse
So pull up a chair
No not that one over there
That one’s saved for the guy
Who we all now work for
They call him Little Lucy
But he’s really just a #2 please
With a side of hot sauce
If you don’t mind of course
At Larry’s All Nite Smorgasbord

Track Name: King And Queen Of Alcohol
King And Queen Of Alcohol
1976 - Syracuse, NY

Long live the king and queen of alcohol
Sitting on their bar stools in their high class drinking halls
They don’t care if you got the money to pay your own way
When they say come along and have some fun
We’re gonna party out today
Come along and have some fun
We’re gonna party out today
Hey hey hey

Going out tonight - Gonna have a good time
Gonna run around
And try to find what I can find
But before it’s all over
Yeah before it’s all through
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
By singing....

Going out tonight - Gonna meet my old friends
John Barleycorn, Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker Red
And when it’s all over
Yeah before it’s all through
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
By singing....

Going out tonight - Gonna raise a little hell
And if I fall down, throw up, or I begin to smell
Before it’s all over
Yeah before it’s all through
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
Gonna let you know where my loyalty stands
And to who I am so true
By singing....
