Track Name: Cry Cry Baby
You ain't never had to cry baby don't start crying now
You ain't never had to cry baby don't start crying now
You never did it before don't do you no good no how

Cry cry baby, cry cry all night long
Cry cry baby, cry cry all night long
You gonna wake up in the morning find your good man gone

Well you talk about women just take one look at mine
Well you talk about women just take one look at mine
She's tougher than you and she gets drunk all the time

Well I sent for you yesterday here you come walking today
Well I sent for you yesterday here you come walking today
Got your mouth wide open and don’t got nothing to say
Track Name: Turning Bad
I been up in the air I been down in a mine
Had a drugged-up fucked-up screwed-up time
High on smack, smoke, pills
Drank so much it made me ill
Running around like a crazy guy
Trying to find new ways to get high
And all this time much closer to home
Was a buzz like nothing ever seen before, that’s

You are the worst drug I ever had, gonna make me mad
I said you are the worst drug I ever had, and you're turning bad

A million dirty pictures in a dirty heap
So much whiskey I staggered to sleep
Gambling online till my eyeballs bleed
Like Nick Cave I got a bad bad seed
Every addiction gets a great big tick
I must be wicked or bad or sick
Stuff to get happy, stuff to get sad
Just like Jesse in Breaking Bad

You are the worst drug
The best I ever had

Relax don’t do it when you wanna go to it
Relax don’t do it when you wanna come
Track Name: Pussycat
Met her at a gig in a rockabilly bar
Hanging on the whammy of a Gretsch guitar
I poured a drink or three or four
I said say when she said what for

She said faster, go faster - faster pussycat, go
Faster pussycat, go

Pinups, dice, the name of her mother
Ran up one arm and down the other
Her rings were sharp, her eyes were crazy
Her dialogue came from Iris Easy

Do do do do do
Bum bum bum bum bum

Go, go, faster pussycat
Go, go, go, go

I had to hold on tight in the end
Or I might have been thrown aside
I knew the thing wouldn't go anywhere
But it sure was a hell of a ride

Do do dah dah dah

All of this was years ago
Sometimes I miss her mostly no
She said faster, go faster - faster pussycat, go
Faster pussycat, go
Faster pussycat
Go, go, faster pussycat
Go
Track Name: Jumping Trains
Like a preacher - I'm on a mission
Like a driver - Avoiding all collisions
Like a hobo - In 1942
I been jumping these trains to you
We got the red house - I got the blues
We got the mojo - More than you
Don't send no letters - You never write
Who were you talking to? - Turn out the light

Like a clerk - I made a misfile
Like a soldier - I loosed a missile
Like a banjo - I got nobody to pluck
And I've been running right out of luck
Don’t need no priest - I been a devil
Don’t need no driver - I'm on the level
We got the red house - I got the blues
We got the mojo - More than you

Don’t pay any dues at all
I’m your favourite criminal
Isolated but never alone
Don’t need a postage stamp to send me home

We got the red house - I got the blues
We got the mojo - More than you
Don't send no letters - No, you never write
Who were you talking to? - Turn out the light
