Track Name: Alabama Train
Alabama Train
Won't you take me home
Alabama Train

Way out here in New Jersey, far away from home
Can't seem to find my little baby child
Guess I better go back home

Alabama Train
Won't you take me home
Alabama Train

Still out here in New Jersey, far away from home
I can't seem to find any lovin' out here
Guess I better go on back home
Track Name: Whisky
Got the bus by the morning light
Got to the ferry by twilight
Got into port by midnight
Barman knows what I like

I want to feel that smoke run down my throat
I want to feel it on my tongue
I want to still feel that lovely thing
After my glass is done

Give me my whisky

Ask me why I ain't working
I been working on my drink
First made from holy water
Brings you back from the brink

Out here it runs like water
Helps put the babes to sleep
But if you touch my bottle
Lordy knows I'll start to weep

Give me my whisky
It's alright

I got myself a woman
When she starts to scream
She takes my favorite bottle
Then she kick off a scene

Out here it runs like water
Helps put the babes to sleep
But if you touch my bottle
lordy knows I'll start to weep
Track Name: Built for Pain
When we're little we learn to crawl
Before we stand up we learn to fall
Before we walk we scrape our knees
When we meet somebody special
Our heart cries out please

Love me for who I am

When we're young it's like a flame
When we're older it's a quiet game
There are exceptions yes that is true
But heartbreak will happen to you
And that's when you learn

We're built for pain

And we can feel all the agony
And we can fall apart
We can be forged in anger
Creations of a Lord who decided that

We're built for pain

When we're little we learn to crawl
Before we stand up we learn to fall
Before we walk we scrape our knees
When we meet somebody special
Our heart cries out please

Love me for who I am
Track Name: Better Apart (The Tea Ditty)
One Two Three fix me a cup of tea and have a seat next to me
Four Five Six use that special mix from your little bag of tricks
Seven Eight Nine take a little time to tell you you ain't mine
Ten Eleven Twelve get over yourself you've been seeing someone else

Well I don't care how long we've been together
I've already got a broken heart
Over tea and under this grey weather
After all the loving, after all the fighting I'm telling you we're better apart

Twelve Eleven Ten playing games again with me and all the other men
Nine Eight Seven you're a little slice of heaven but you won't tell me where you've been
Six Five Four pour me a little more before you go out and walk out the door
Three Two One we've had our fun but this little song is done.

Well I don't care how long we've been together
I've already got a broken heart
Over tea and under this grey weather
After all the loving, after all the fighting I'm telling you we're better apart
