Track Name: Ruby
Oh Ruby you left me with a horse in the pantry
Four homely children out bustin' in the fields

The gambler came for my cash
We got into a shooting match
He hit my leg, I shot his face
Few inches to the right it would have been a real bad place

The horse I named Lucile
Packed all the oats the kids could steal
Then we headed for the mountains
Being chased by Sheriff Beale

A pint of liquor in my pocket
And another in my belly
I been drinking all day
My teeth are rotten and my head it just ain't right.

I woke up in some prison
Nursing wounds from a fight
Yeah I'm sure they think I killed you
Long ago that autumn night

There's no use in trying to run
Yeah I know they'll track me down
So I will live as the outlaw
Who put you in the ground
Track Name: Seahorse
Mr. Seahorse, show me to my bed
Mr. Seahorse, feet are on the edge
Mr. Seahorse

Mr. Seahorse, cure my tremens
Mr. Seahorse, elephants with weapons
Mr. Seahorse
Track Name: Public Restrooms
She wears a helmet to floss her teeth
Her bed is empty- she's underneath
Likes to make decisions and to change her pants
She keeps broken eggshells, She keeps two pet ants

She doesn't want red but she might like blue
She loves public restrooms

She'll make you coffee at eight o'clock
She'll take your phone call- she loves to talk
Takes her time to answer, doesn't stop to think
Likes to drink her water from the bathroom sink

She doesn't want red but she might like blue
She loves public restrooms

It's fascinating
She don't mind waiting
For urinating
She might not make it...
Track Name: Alma
I got my feet wet today
Bumped into something fair
Saw her dancing on a chair
Said man, I gotta get over there

She said hello my name is Alma
Walk away if you carry drama
Don't want nothing I can't hold
So come with me if that is not too bold

Been living the same way too long
Hurting myself through and through
Been living the same way too long
Nursing my body with booze
At last, at last
One turned into two
At last, at last
Hope brought me something new

Now Alma is not her real name
She'd be sad if I told
So I will keep our little secret
'Cause I am a trustworthy man

No this won't be like before
Ain't nobody gonna walk out the door
'Cause baby I play for keeps
And I'll be there after we sleep

Been living the same way too long
Hurting myself through and through
Been living the same way too long
Nursing my body with booze
At last, at last
One turned into two
At last, at last
Hope brought me something new
Track Name: Scruffy
You are a nerf herder.

Who you calling scruffy looking?
Track Name: Tennessee
I've never cared much for Nashville
Graceland is a dead man's circus
I've traveled Memphis
There wasn't much to see
Don't think I'll go down south again

You can keep your patchwork roads
You can keep your diamond shaped buildings
And your archways connecting one problem to the next
You can keep it.

Stepped off in a parking lot
A woman drove up to me
Tequila was her name
Asked me if I wanted to buy some crack
I said I'd be right back

I come from a small town
Thought I needed to see more
Saw only rest stops and road signs
The same old score
You can keep it.
