Track Name: Crime Scene Queen
630-8975 I’m a speed dial crazy on a Saturday night
Committed to nothin' but a life on the run
Baby pull the trigger on my red-headed gun

Yeah - Come get me!

Restless and mean, yeah, I do what I please
Grab your .38 and baby gimme the keys
I’m fixin' on money like a junkie in need
Bonnie and Clyde ain't got nothin' on me
You're a splatter of blood

And I'm the Crime Scene Queen

Take a shot of whiskey, gear it up high
Green is the color of my favorite crime
Four lines toppin' off dilatin' my eyes
Power to the queen, break it open tonight
You know justice is blind

At the scene of the crime

She's a dream - Makin' the scene
Killer queen - Set you free
Leavin' me - Better off dead
She's a scream

Baby Crime Scene Queen

I’m finer than china and a body supreme
I take what I want and leave 'em beggin' me please
It's a matter of time and your gonna pay me
I’m ten steps ahead of your desperate greed
Your'e a victim of love

'Cause I'm the Crime Scene Queen

She's a dream - Makin' the scene
Killer queen - Set you free
Leavin' me - Better off dead
She's a scream - Breakin' heads
She's a dream - Makin' the scene
Killer queen - Set you free
Leavin' me - Better off dead
She's a scream

Baby Crime Scene Queen

I’m a killer!
Track Name: Nothing But A Bad Break
I lay my head, I lay my right
I lay my life, in your bed tonight
I make no bones, 'bout the way I live
But baby if I could, it'd be a sin
Ain't got nothin' but a bad break with your heart

Lord, Lord, you treat me mean
For seven years, your'e cheatin' me
I left my soul, in evil's line
Now I know, baby, it cost me mine

Ain't got nothin' but a bad break with your heart
in't got nothin' but a bad break with your heart

My money's gone, now I'm spent
I work too hard, just payin' rent
You took my love, like it was free
Wouldn't stop your runnin' round, baby you left me

Ain't got nothin' but a bad break with your heart
Ain't got nothin' but a bad break with your heart
Track Name: Get Twisted
Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get up
Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get off

I like a man in the morning
To wake up next to me
Take me without warning
Put some sugar in my tea
I wanna get on an all day bender with you

Call it in take a holiday
Love you baby, now if you stay
We'll roll around 'til 12 o'clock
Before I let your champagne pop
I wanna get on an all day bender with you

Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get up
Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get off

Evening come now it's party time
Sip me baby, I'm a real fine wine
Let's get tight and dance 'til two
Please me baby and I'll please you
I wanna get on an all day bender with you

Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get up
Come on, come on, baby get twisted
Come on, come on, baby get off
Track Name: Salvation
I don't want love, I need salvation
Oh, I can't get you off my mind
If you go and break my heart
Will it satisfy your soul
Then our love will fall apart
And I'll have to let you go
I don't want love, I need salvation

Don't want your love, to be temptation
Even though, I love you so
After all that we've gone through
And you left our love behind
I still can't get over you
And I come back every time
Don't want love, to be temptation

I don't want it, I don't need it
Just keep your love and let me be

With your love, comes devastation
Oh, I’m empty without you
Other hearts lead you astray
And you let your lovin' roam
Now my trust has gone away
And I'm standin' all alone
With your love, comes devastation

I don't want it, I need salvation
I don't need it, your temptation
What I need, Ah salvation
Cause your love, won't let me be
Track Name: Marilon
Marilon, she lucky in love
Sweetest woman, coo like a dove
Marilon, gonna buy you a ring
Marilon, gonna make you sing
Woman, woman, wanna be your man
Let me love you, the best I can
Marilon, she lucky in love
Sweetest woman, coo like a dove

Mr brown, he do me right
Got me swoonin all through the night
Mr brown lean on my door
Mr brown, it's you i adore
Every night he sweep me off my feet
Lover man my heart skip a beat
Mr brown, he do me right
Got me swoonin all through the night

Marilon, she lucky in love
Sweetest woman, coo like a dove
Mr brown, he do me right
Got me swoonin all through the night
Ooh baby I'm in love with you
Hold you close is what I'm gonna do
Marilon, she lucky in love
Sweetest woman, coo like a dove
Track Name: Goodnight My Love
I know you don't want me anymore
Holdin' you so close to me
A dollar spent, a dollar short
I'm so tired I can't see

Times are hard baby times are tough
Every week I got a bill come due
I work all day it just aint' enough
I'm beaten down like I'm gonna lose

Goodnight my love, sleep tight my love
Goodnight my love, sleep tight my sweet love

Black sheets of rain fall down from heaven
Like an angel that has died
A final rest is what I'm given
Take the fury from my eyes

Goodnight my love, sleep tight my love
Goodnight my love, sleep tight my sweet love
Track Name: Don't Talk Betty
Don't talk Betty, turn up the radio
She's a gum smackin' terror on heels
A snake eyes honey in a tight dress
Jacks or better girl on the deal

She was something baby, he was alright
Easy money when he walked through the door
He had a big roll of bills, Betty moved in for the kill
Another sucker for her candy store

She looked up with a wink and a glance
The eye in the sky blew a kiss
Takin' money away, well that's the name of the game
And nobody did it better that this

Well it's 50 dollars to Vegas, a hundred down for the floor
It's 50 dollars to Vegas, cashin' in on every roll
Well it's 50 dollars to Vegas, a double shot on the pour
It's 50 dollars to Vegas, Betty's got 'em beggin' for more

Don't talk Betty, she's out on the grift
With a giggle and a martini glass
Lets you call her honey as she takes your money
Lady luck? She's a shark with your cash

She's a high rollin' baby bustin' out on her game
Takin' double or nothin to score
She's the total class, talkin' nothin but trash
She's a Friday night gamblin' show

Well it's 50 dollars to Vegas, a hundred down for the floor
It's 50 dollars to Vegas, cashin' in on every roll
Well it's 50 dollars to Vegas, a double shot on the pour
It's 50 dollars to Vegas, Betty's got 'em beggin' for more
Track Name: Voodoo Doll
I twitch & I quiver
I jerk & I swing
I love it when he
Makes me do those things

He pokes me with needles
And ties me with strings
I'm in his control
When he does those things

Voodoo boy, I'm your toy
Play with me, can't you see
I'm a voodoo doll
I'm under a spell
I can't get away
I'm in voodoo hell

Out on the bayou
Deep in the night
His hands are the power
They're holdin' me tight

Jungle drums rumble
With hypnotic time
He's a sinewy lover
And he's all mine

Voodoo boy, I'm your toy
Play with me, can't you see
I'm a voodoo doll
I'm under a spell
I can't get away
I'm in voodoo hell
Track Name: Roll It Home
Midnight come, now I'm rollin' home
Been so long, now I'm rollin' home
I need some love, that's why I'm rollin' home

Take my time, gonna rock it slow
Love it right, gonna rock it slow
If it take all night, we gonna rock it slow

Yeah, yeah, baby rock & roll
Yeah, yeah, rock my soul
I need some love, I'm gonna roll it home

Sunday morn, I'm comin' back for more
Don't you know, I'm comin' back for more
The way you make me moan, I'm comin' back for more

Goddamn, baby rock & roll
Goddamn, rock my soul
I need some love, I'm gonna roll it home
Track Name: Travelin' On
I've lived a hard damn life since I was seven
I let the devil burn deep inside of me
I've played the games of whiskey drinkin' women
The games of love and cheatin' means

Ain't had no job that's lasted for a week or more
Ain't got no time for workin' 9 to 5
I stay up late and play the honky-tonkin'
Play my guitar and play all night

I'm travelin' on, to clear blue heaven
My life on earth is misery
I'm travelin' on to claim my maker
For in his arms I will be free

I have walked up and down the streets of love
I've broken hearts in every town I see
I pass on by when I see the preacher man
Who says 'Your blind, but I can make you see'

Now here I lay all broken and deserted
My only friend, the bottle next to me
And one last time dance with the demon satan
So Lord, Oh Lord, come bury me

I'm travelin' on, to clear blue heaven
My life on earth is misery
I'm travelin' on to claim my maker
For in his arms I will be free
