1. Hang 'Em High (4:51)
Yeah, alright, ha ha ha

Born a rambler, roamin' from town to town
Chase the dollar, huntin' that bounty down
Gonna hunt 'em down
Ever make 'em dance where their feet never touch the ground

CHORUS:

Hang 'em high
Come on boys, we're gonna hang 'em high
Hang 'em high
Round 'em up, we're gonna hang 'em high

Gonna hang 'em high, oh, oh yeah

Heading up, we're goin' where the chase don't end
Every towns gun got a price on his head
They're as good as dead
Gonna watch 'em swing at the end of a gallows thread

REPEAT CHORUS

Then we'll watch 'em dance where their feet don't touch the ground
So string 'em up and lay that money down and hang 'em high
Hang 'em high
String 'em up, boys

Solo

Ooh, ow, yeah
Well oh, then we'll watch 'em dance where their feet don't touch the ground
So string 'em up and lay that money down and hang 'em high, ooh
Hang 'em high

Hang 'em high
Come on boys, gonna hang 'em high
Hang 'em high
Round 'em up, we're gonna hang 'em high

Hang 'em high
Stringin' 'em up from town to town then they lay that money down
Hang 'em high
Come on, hang 'em, hang 'em high, come on, hang 'em, hang 'em high, yeah

Hang 'em high
Every gun as good as dead, every price got on his head
Hang 'em high
Watch 'em dance, watch 'em die, take a chance, just hang 'em high

Hang 'em high
Come on boys, hang 'em high
Hang 'em high
Round 'em up, we're gonna hang 'em high
2. Gone Bad (3:44)
Yeah, huh huh huh

Say you thought I was gonna be
Someone more like you, someone less like me
So you fight every step I'd take
Try to second guess every move I make
Tell me what did I say
Won'tcha tell me what did I do
That makes you hate me like you do

You gone bad, the preacher told me
You gone bad, I heard him say
Well, how would he know anyway, yeah, yeah
You gone bad

So I'm bad, cut off from the rest
So I walk alone, everything you detest
Why should I play the games you play
Should I worry 'bout all the things people say
Tell me why should I care
Won't you tell me what should I prove
That I'm just as feeble and lost as you?

You gone bad, the teacher told me
You gone bad, I heard her say
How would she know anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You gone bad, bad, bad, bad, ow

Solo

Ow, ow, oh, oh, oh, ooh, yeah
So tell me what did I say
Won'tcha tell me what did I do
To get you to hate me like you do

You gone bad, the sheriff told me
You gone bad, I heard him say
Well, how would he know anyway, yeah, yeah
You gone bad, the people told me
You gone bad, I heard 'em say
Well, how would they know anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You gone bad, bad, bad, bad, oh, oh, oh
You gone bad
3. The Maverick (5:06)
It stood in the meadow, wind blowin' through its mane
Cryin' go, go, go, go and do it
He stares out the window, anger feeds his flame
Cries oh, oh, oh I can't lose it
And he asks no questions why 'cause he knows it's do or die
He got colder and tough, now he's hard to the stuff
He's got to go and try

CHORUS:

Run wild, run free on the road to nowhere
Run wild, run free from the pain and misery
Run wild, run free on the road to nowhere
No one's gonna change your life

She stood in the doorway tryin' to change his mind
Sayin', "no, no, no don't you do it"
He walked through the doorway, she started to cry
He said, "oh, oh, oh don't you lose it"
But she asks no questions why 'cause she knows it's do or die
She just smiles and hangs tough 'cause she's hard to the stuff
She knows he's got to try

REPEAT CHORUS

No one's gonna change your life, oh yeah, ooh

Solo

They ask no questions why 'cause they know it's do or die
They got colder and tough, now they're hard to the stuff
They know they got to try

REPEAT CHORUS

No one's gonna change your life, oh yeah, ooh
4. The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter (7:11)
I'm gonna find it, there's nothing more to say
But only a child believes in miracles
Last spotted nowhere and nowhere's far away
But I can't let it go, why I don't know
Ain't the only one who ever tried
Ain't the only man who lived a lie
I'm no better than the ones who died
But a man ain't a man if he don't take a stand
And he won't put it all on the line

Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And the pain inside's gonna tear you apart
Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And like a shot from a gun or knife's goin' straight to your heart

Try to remember the time it got away
Can't hold a memory even if you try
Slipped through my fingers like a night slips into day
And I tried to hold on, I tried and it's gone
Ain't the only one to ever lose
Ain't the only man who had to choose
I'm no stranger to that kind of news
But a man ain't a man if he don't make a stand
And he won't put his heart on the line

Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And the pain inside gonna tear you apart
Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And like a shot from a gun or knife's goin' straight to your heart
Goin' straight to you heart, ooh

Solo

Ain't the only one to walk the line
Ain't the only man who's come to find
That I'm no different, I know love is blind
But a man ain't a man if he won't take a stand
And he won't put his soul on the line

Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And the pain inside's gonna tear you apart
Well, the heart is a lonely hunter
And like a shot from a gun or knife goin' straight to your

It's a lonely, it's a lonely hunter
And the pain inside gonna tear, gonna tear you apart
Well, the heart is a lonely, it's a lonely hunter
And like a shot from a gun or knife goin' straight to you heart

Goin' straight to you, goin' straight to your
Goin' straight to your heart, yeah
It's a lonely, it's a lonely
It's a lonely, lonely, lonely hunter, yeah
5. Calling for You (4:54)
Ooh, ooh, oh oh

Ooh, when you walked away, I saw the curtain start to fall
And as my blue sky turned to grey, I knew I'd lost it all
And as your smile began to fade, ten thousand pictures fill my head
Of all the good and happy times we had and feelings left unsaid
Too much was left unsaid

Girl, I want you to stay, I beg you, I pray
Don't leave me this way
I've so much to say, oh, don't walk away
How long must I pay

CHORUS:

Calling for you, calling for you
Lost without you, nothing else matters
Can you see through, all that I do
I'm calling for you now and forevermore

And if I told you how I feel, girl, would it change a single thing
Or were the times we had unreal but not the tears they bring
The memories they sting

Girl, I want you to see I need you with me
Oh, please let us be
I've so much to give, please let our love live
Oh, can't you forgive

REPEAT CHORUS

Solo

Girl, I'm tired and alone, my heart has no home
My tears they fall like stone
And now I'm afraid your feelings did fade
Can our love be saved

Calling for you, calling for you
Lost without you, nothing else matters
Can you see through, all that I do
I'm calling for you now and forever

Calling for you, calling for you
Calling for you now and forever
Calling for you, calling for you
I'm calling for you now and forevermore

Oh, now and forevermore
Ooh, oh yeah, yeah, aah
6. See You at Sunrise (5:53)
Look at how you've come to this
You gave it all for a stolen kiss
Now look at yourself, look at yourself, you're nowhere
All night long you'll lay and think of me
You were so sure that I wouldn't see
Go take a good look, take a good look, you're nowhere

See you at sunrise
See you in the morning's light
There won't be any compromise when I'm blowin' you away

CHORUS:

See you at sunrise
See you at sunrise, my friend
See you at sunrise
See you at sunrise, my friend

Are you blind or didn't you see
You crossed the line and you came to me
How could you not know, how could you not know you were over
A lesson taught, my spilled well
What kickin' you box and you went hell
You let it all go, you let it all go, you're over, aah

See you at sunrise
See you in the cold daylight
There won't be any alibis when they're takin' you away

REPEAT CHORUS

See you at sunrise
See you at sunrise, my friend, ooh

Solo
7. There's No Angels Here (4:54)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Don't need no one, don't want nothin'
Had it but it got away
Heard the stories, wrote some pages
There nothin' more to say
There's no pleasure, there's no passion
There's no nothin' but nothin' will do
Tired of livin', not ready for dyin'
Least not 'til I'm through

Sayin', lord, I need someone
Someone to answer when I pray
Sayin', lord, I need some love
Somethin' to make me wanna stay

CHORUS:

There's no angels here, there's no angels anymore
Headed for the coast, ain't comin' back for sure
There's no angels here, there's no angels anymore
No one worth forgivin' and there ain't no law

Winds are blowin', winds of changes
Hard to hang on to a prayer
Time's a healer, time's a killer
Time takes everything that's there
I'm the reason, I'm the rhymer
I'm the one they all been lookin' for
Here to lead the unforgiven
Here to stay this time for sure

BRIDGE:

Lord, I need someone
Someone to answer when I pray
Sayin', lord, I need some love
Somethin' to make me wanna stay

REPEAT CHORUS

No one worth forgivin' and there ain't no law, yeah

Solo

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
There's no angels here, no law
There's no angels here no more

Don't need no one, don't want nothin'
Had it but it got away
Heard the stories, wrote some pages
There nothin' more to say, yeah

REPEAT BRIDGE

REPEAT CHORUS

No angels here, no angels anymore
Headed for the coast, he ain't comin' back
There's no angels here, there's no angels anymore
No one worth forgivin' and there ain't no law
No one worth forgivin' and there ain't no law
No one worth forgivin' and there ain't no law

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
8. Made for Trouble (3:45)
She got a look you want to know better
But beware, you better forget her
She got style and a casual grace
But her smile's been all over the place

If you try to get her to stay
You'll wake up all alone the very next day

Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy you she'll go down
Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy her you'll go down
Down on your knees

Tell the boy that the lady's a tiger
Full of noise, easy laughs and a liar
Suck you in, man, the girl's a seducer
Once you're got, well, she'll just turn you loose

If you try to push her away
She's back twice as hard the very next day

Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy you she'll go down
Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy you she'll go down, down, down
Down on your knees

Solo

Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy you she'll go down
Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy her you'll go down, down, down

Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy her you'll go down, down, down, down
Made for trouble, made to please
To satisfy her you'll go down
Down on your knees, yeah, ooh, ooh, ooh
9. Ride Thru the Storm (4:30)
I guess you could say this is the end
It's your time to leave, my old friend
Fly, fly away
No need to hang around here no more
Go now before I close the door
But I need you so bad
Can't seem to let go of all that I had

Still you stand by my side
What are you waiting for?
Say you're in for the ride
Well, are you really sure?
You can't turn back no more

CHORUS:

Ride through the storm
Fighting our battles as we go along
Ride through the storm
Keep on ridin' on right through the storm
Ridin' on right through the storm

Wanna tell you I'm glad you hung around
I was lost and afraid, but now I'm found
Try, try again
Aren't just words, they're my battle cry
Found some new wings, I'm gonna fly
I'm well on my way
Heard all the warnings, there's no need to pray

And still you're by my side
What are we waiting for?
You're with me for the ride
Well, now I'm really sure
We won't turn back no more

REPEAT CHORUS

Solo

Ride through the storm
Fighting our battles as we go along
Ride through the storm
Keep on ridin' on right through the storm
Ridin' on right through the

REPEAT CHORUS

Ridin' right through the storm
10. Son of a Gun (5:34)
Born to face the dark alone
By his father's guns he'll right the wrong
Following the man in black
Through the desert, to the tower and back, yeah

Nobody can stop a gun
Words or looks never killed someone
Nobody can stop a gun
It's death, the final weapon

He's the son of the gun
He's the son of the gun

Cold as steel and twice as hard
Measuring his manhood by the yard, yeah
Love and dying are his life
Wears his father's iron by his side, he's in love, oh yeah

Nobody ever stopped the gun
Some tried, now their days are done
Nobody ever stopped the gun
It's said, like father, just like son

He's the son of the gun
He's the son of the gun
Just the son of the gun
He's the son, son, son of the gun

Solo

He's the last of time before
Winning every fight, they lost the war, ha ha
Three remain from world of old
As he walks the prophecy unfolds, he's in guns, he's in gun

Nobody can stop his guns
Do their work and the bodies thump
Nobody can stop his guns
They spill some blood and the world moved on

He's the son of the gun
He's the son of the gun
Just the son of the gun
Just the son, son, son, son, son of the gun
11. Emaheeva (4:25)
Never thought much about right or wrong
Never thought much about what I've done
Never think much about what I'll do
Don't give a damn 'bout when I'm through

Am I evil, girl, I don't know
Am I evil, sent from below
Am I evil, born to be damned
Am I bad, power mad
Cursed where I stand?

CHORUS:

Am I evil, am I evil
Am I, I, I, I evil
Am I evil, am I evil
Am I, I, I, I evil

Ask me why and I won't know
Ask me how and I won't show
Ask me where and I will lie
Ask me who, spit in your eye

Am I evil, girl, I don't know
Am I evil, sent from below
Am I evil, born to be damned
Can I change, turn the page
Be a new man?

REPEAT CHORUS

Solo

Cross me once, I'll laugh at you
Cross me twice, break you in two
Make me mad and I will turn
Bust my balls, I'll watch you burn

Am I evil, girl, I don't know
Am I evil, sent from below
Am I evil, born to be damned
Am I crazed, hell's filet
Lucifer's brand?

REPEAT CHORUS (twice)

Oh, oh
Am I evil?
Ow, am I evil?
Yeah, oh, oh, oh, yeah, baby
12. Easy Action (3:52)
Tapped out, gotta get some action
Case cash brings satisfaction
I'm hot and ready to roll
Crap out and I'm in a hole
All I want is, all I need is

Sittin' on a hard sixteen
I'm down, you know what I mean
Stone cold starin' at a truck
That bullet means I'm outta luck
All I want is, all I need is

Easy, easy action
Easy, easy action

Hands stiff, nothin' in the hole
For a pair I'd bet my soul
Decks heatin' but I'm too late
Drawin' four to an outside straight
All I want is, all I need is

Easy, easy action
Easy, easy action
Easy, easy
Easy, easy action

Oh, oh, oh

Solo

So roll the dice, let dem bones a roll
Deal the cards, I'm too deep in the hole
Let it ride, I haven't lost my soul
Roll the dice, deal the cards
Let it ride, I'm a gamblin' suicide

Racks cold, shows nothin' but green
House stooge is pickin' me clean
Chips fall to the toss of the till
Whole numbers fall off of the wheel
All I want is, all I need is

Easy, easy action
Easy, easy action
Easy, gimme easy
Easy, easy action

Easy action, baby
I want it easy, gimme easy action, alright

I want it easy all night long, yeah
13. Heart of Saturday Night (3:53)
Ooh, yeah, alright
Well, you gassed her up, you're behind the wheel
With your arm around your sweet thing in your Ford mobile
Barrelling down the boulevard
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

You got paid on Friday, your pockets are jangling
Then you see the lights, lord, how you get all tingling
Cruisin' with a six, yeah
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

Then you comb your hair, shave your face
Tryin' to wipe out every trace of all the other days in the week
You know that this'll be the Saturday
You're reaching your peak

Stoppin' on the red, goin' on the green
'Cause the night'll be like nothing, boy, that you have ever seen, yeah
Barrelling down the boulevard
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night
Yeah, you're cruisin' down the boulevard
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night, ooh

Solo

Is it the crack of the pool balls, neon buzzin'
The telephone's ringin', it's a second cousin
Is it the barmaid that's smilin' from the corner of her eye
The magic or the melancholy tear in your eye

Makes it kind of quiver down in the cold
'Cause you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
Now you're stumblin'
Stumblin' on the heart of Saturday night
Now you're stumblin' down
Stumblin' on the heart of Saturday night
Yeah, you're stumblin'
Stumblin' on the heart of Saturday night, yeah, oh yeah

Solo
