Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I"m wrong

[Chorus:]
Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever want to' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why, 'cause I'm

[Chorus:]
Jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

[Chorus]

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you

Never felt like smiling
Sugar want to' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets

[Chorus]

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

[Chorus: x2]

Sister Luck

assistant mixer: Lee Manning
writer: Rich Robinson, Chris Robinson
Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

What a shame

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

Could I've Been So Blind

length: 3:45
producer: George Drakoulias
engineer: Brendan O’Brien
executive producer: Rick Rubin
assistant mixer: Lee Manning
writer: Chris Robinson, Rich Robinson
How could I've been so blind
So empty that I've never felt warm
Can I spell it out
Turn myself out of my home
Lookin' like a fool
Feelin' even worse than it seems
Tryin' hard as nails
Belevin' only in myself

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes
Sometimes

But my greatest fear
Paint a smile from ear to ear
Alone and cryin'
Living like this is no better than dying

I tell you baby things are gonna' change
Looking like we were caught out in the rain
Feeling lonely
That's the way it goes
Sometimes

[Chorus:]
Could I ever have been so blind
Hardest thing I ever had to do
Was stand up straight and tell it all to you
Look you right in the eye
Tell you baby sorry but I have lied

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes

Sometimes

[Chorus: x4]

Seeing Things

length: 5:19

executive producer: Rick Rubin
assistant mixer: Lee Manning
writer: Rich Robinson, Chris Robinson
Find it hard to shed a tear
Brought it on yourself, my dear
And wrong, yes, I may be,
Don't leave a light on for me
'cause I ain't comin' home
It hurts me baby, to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby.

One hundred years will never ease
There are days I won't believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain, I can't hide
And this pain, starts in my heart
And this love, tears us apart now!

Won't find me bent down, on my knees
Oh, yeah,...
Ain't bending over backwards, not to please
Oh, no

[Chorus:]
'cause I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
In my life
In my life, yeah.

And oh how I used to dream
Of better days that never came
And sorry ain't nothing to me
I'm gone, and that's the way it must be

So please, I've done my time
Loving you is such a crime
You won't find me down, on my knees
Oh no no no
Won't find me over backwards, just to please
Oh, yeah

[Chorus]

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on
You
You gotta' come back for more

[Chorus]
Boys and things that come by the
Dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore
Lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your
Candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent
Lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your
Candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

Hey boys, buzzin' bee stingin'
Ringing ears never gonna' stop
Stand tall sickness creeping right on
Struttin' blues gonna' find me again

[Chorus]
Got my head spinnin' round
Wonderin' when it's gonna stop
Got my head spinnin' round
Wonderin' when it's gonna stop

Out there, breeze is finally blowing
No tellin' when the train pulls in
My baby got her engine hummin'
Struttin' blues gonna' find me again

[Chorus: x 3]

Hey boys, hanging on the corner
Where you hidin' when the lights go dim
This thing lightin' got your thunder want to crack'n
Struttin' blues want to find me again

[Chorus: x 4]

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company.
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family.

She paints her eyes as black as night now.
She pulls those shades down tight.
Yeah, she gives me a smile when the pain comes.
The pain gonna make everything alright.

[Chorus:]
Says she talks to angels.
They call her out by her name.
Oh yeah, she talks to angels.
Says they call her out by her name.

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket.
She wears a cross around her neck.
The hair is from a little boy,
And the cross from someone she has not met, well, not yet

[Chorus]

She don't know no lover,
None that I ever seen.
Yeah, to her that ain't nothing
But to me it means, means everything.

She paints her eyes as black as night now.
Pulls those shades down tight.
There's a smile when the pain comes.
Pain's gonna make everything alright.

[Chorus]

Stare It Cold

Under the weather
I never got better
Wrapped up in my disease
Mile away, she want to count my day
Look a little older in the light

Under the weather
Feelin' very heavy
Never up for no air

Sea legs start to wigglin'
And sick I'm still feelin'
Just know I never cared

Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold
Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold

Never thought about it
And never no questions
Seein' where I've gone wrong

No kiss made it magic
'Cause that old girl has had it
Then it's time for me to run along
