Track Name: You Got to Run (Single Version)
You Got to Run

Standin' stranded on the edge of a night
very far from home
Tell my secrets to the dyin' light
and I was all alone

Set my sights on the setting sun
it's all I can see
The bad things, all the evil I done
it's catching up with me

You Got to Run

Vultures circling up ahead,
they know very well
That any moment now I'll be dead
sent straight down to hell

The heart beating down inside my chest
is barely keeping time
The skull bleaching on the side of the road
already know it's mine

You Got to Run

Now when I was a young boy
I said when I was a young boy
My momma told me "son..."
And my poppa told me "son..."

They said "boy..."
Yeah they said "boy..."

Track Name: Backwoods Bear (Single Version)
Backwoods Bear

I Head down to the river side
I'll be drinkin' and smokin', we'll be there all night
Get thrown out of a liquor store,
you know I've been drunk and disorderly before
You think it's strange the way I live my life
Well I'm a Backwoods Bear, baby tell me no lies.

Bathe in the bathroom of a quickie-mart
I didn't pay my bill so now my water won't start
Jack Daniels is the breakfast of champs,
I just spilt a whole handle on my guitar amp
You think it's strange the way I live my life
Well I'm a Backwoods Bear, baby tell me no lies.

Been on my own since I was 10 years old
Worst thing of being homeless is it gets really cold
Put ginger-ale in some kerosene
You're gonna wake up in the mornin' under evergreens
You think it's strange the way I live my life
Well I'm a Backwoods Bear, baby tell me no lies.
