Track Name: Whitey Takes A Gamble
If you'll drive, here's the keys
it will start one of these three..
but who needs luxury cars
when we know we're faster than they are?
No chrome, no steel,
just heart behind the wheel
this avenues so bright
I'm blacked out blind on you tonight.

Tie one on
come with me
ten belts good luck for safety
just like we learned
when we started to turn down Kay
where its held
they flag us down like they knew us well
windows stay cracked
better ripped off than jacked
Track Name: Southern Kicks

Track Name: 38
found out cuz he told the things that he saw
and he aint the first one to go loose in the jaw.
I found out some things you don't want me to know
and I found out some things you'll find out when I go.

Keep all my cash in the jar on the shelf
so one day I can grow up and live by myself
you say that the circles you run in are small
but the difference is I don't run circles at all.

I found out you leaned up on ten other men
and I found out you gave me that thing you gave them
and I found out to dream is a big waste of time.
but now that I'm wasted I dream on a dime.
