Track Name: No Sweeter Lady
Somewhere out on the highway
Hoping that she's passing my way soon
Telling you all her stories
Singing you another sweetheart tune

Anything you want she'll get ya
Anything you need you betcha
Tell her that you're lost she'll fetch ya home

Don't you ever dare mistreat her
Lucky if you get to meet her
You won't ever find a sweeter lady

Two hours on the road and two more to go
She'll take you just to share the show
She's always gonna treat you right
Always gonna treat you right

And you know you're gonna give your best
'Cause you always feel thast you've been blessed
To stand in the light of an angel
Stand in the light of an angel

If you've lost your soul she'll find it
Put it in the wash and mend it
Wrap it up with love and send it home.
Track Name: Ruin
Liar, liar the day's on fire
Tow it out and sink it
I say I meaneach word I use
When I hardly get to think it
And every line that I pursue
Was scarcely worth pursuing
So I'm brewing up and sparking up
In my rack and ruin

I once presumed I was this flesh
All joys and woes attending
But blood and bone betray me now
Here at the body's ending
I once presumed my onedesire
Was to getthe art of living
Now the only thing I wish I'd got
Was the artless gift of giving

Now every lane is just a memory lane
And it echoes to my calling
And every rave is just a rave to the grave
But I'll keep dancing as I'm falling
And everything that I have done
Just wasn't worth the doing
So I'm burning down my party crown
At the edge of ruin
