Track Name: Hard Time Killing Floor Blues (feat. Brianna Thomas)
Hard times is here
And everywhere you go
Times is harder
Than they ever been before

And the people are driftin’
From door to door
Can't find no heaven
And don't care where they go

Let me tell you people
Just before I go
These hard times will kill you
Just dry long so

And if you hear me singin’
My true lonesome song
These hard times can last us
So very long, long, long

If I ever get off
This killin' floor
I will never, never, never, never get down
So low no more

Yeah you say you had money
You’d better be sure
‘Cause these hard times
Will drive you from door to door

Hard times
Everywhere you go
Times is gettin’ harder
Than they ever been before, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hard times
Everywhere you go
Hard, hard, hard, hard, hard, hard, hard times
These hard times
Everywhere, everywhere you go
Track Name: See Line Woman (feat. Brianna Thomas & Marc Cary)
See line woman, she drink coffee
She drink tea, and then go home
See line, see line woman

See line woman, dressed in green
Wears silk stockings with golden seams
See line woman

See line woman, dressed in red
Make a man lose his head
See line, see line woman

See line woman, black dress on
For a thousand dollars, she'll wail and she'll moan, she'll moan
See line woman

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wiggle, wiggle, turn like a cat
Wink at a man and he'll wink back
See line, see line, see line woman

Empty his pockets and wreck his days
Make him love her and she'll fly, fly away
Oh, see line woman

Ee, ee, ee, ee
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah

See line, see line, see line, see line woman
See line, see line, see line woman
