Track Name: The River
Meet me down by the river, meet me down there by the shore.
I need some help to hold my head above the water 'cause my baby ain't my baby no more.

When I'm not long for this world I know they'll carry my pine box low.
So walk on down with me and bring a couple coins, you can pay for my ferry home.

Meet me down by the river, meet me down there by the shore.
I need some help to hold my head above the water 'cause my baby ain't my baby no more.

"What luck is this? I know it's surely no luck of my own."
Said Old Ironsides to the lady of the night just before he took her home

He said,
"Meet me down by the river, meet me down there by the shore.
I need some help to hold my head above the water 'cause my baby ain't my baby no more."

Well, Jerry the Barber told One-Eyed Joe, "My baby done left this town. Give my love to the wife and the kids, I'm headed to the water to drown."

Meet me down by the river, meet me down there by the shore.
I need some help to hold my head above the water 'cause my baby ain't my baby no more.
Track Name: All That Money
All that money
Well, it ain't a shock it just ain't in my pocket.
Well, more of the same.

I work my fingers to the bone.
Just trying to bring that bacon home.
Working seven days a week, with nothing to show but no sleep.
That's alright though.

So when I see you with your head hung down,
I'll tell you something that'll lift you up;
"We might be struggling, honey."
and, "Being broke gets old."
"They got the money, but we got the soul."

All that money
Well, it ain't a shock it just ain't in my pocket.
Well, more of the same.

Well it's the same thing every day.
I'm working hard just like I should.
Boss man wrote me a check and said,
"You can take that to the bank"
You know that check just weren't no good.
So, when you see me with my head hung down.
You tell me something gonna lift me up.
We might be struggling honey, and
Being broke gets old.
They got the money, but we got the soul.

All that money
Well, it ain't a shock it just ain't in my pocket.
Well, more of the same.
Track Name: Mama, Won't You Please
I remember walking down to the bar just up the road,
and I remember walking home with nothing in my pockets but a fine toothed comb.
We had a hell of a time, or so they say.
Funny thing is I can't put my finger on much of anything I did that day.

I remember coming in, falling down in the floor, the last thing that I can plainly recall was seeing you walking out the door.

Now that you've gone away, I've been thinking 'bout ya night and day, so mama, won' t you please come home.
Now that you've gone away, I ain't had a drop to drink today, so mama, won't you please come home.

I remember that old card game, I thought I was playing well. When we layed down our hands, let me tell ya' baby, it all went to hell.
I was on a roll, now I'm singing the blues.
He laid down aces and I laid two's and he took my best pair of wintipped shoes...

...and I'm thinking maybe baby, should've worn my boots
thinking maybe baby, should've worn my boots
thinking maybe baby, should've worn my boots
thinking maybe baby, should've worn my boots
