Track Name: Cemetery Song
heed my philosophy
cuz I was born in a cemetery
I was born in a cemetery
ain't no grave can hold me down

evil dichotomy
and I was born in a cemetery
when you're born in a cemetery
your whole family's in the ground

heed my sweet intonation
life is overrated
be my great elevation
time is almost fated

come and then you will see
that I was born in a cemetery
I was born in a cemetery
my heart is six feet underground

all underneath my feet
and I was born in a cemetery
when you're born in a cemetery
ain't no grave can hold you down

heed my sweet intonation
life is overrated
be my great elevation
time is almost fated

the secrets you in the lies you want to bury
we got them here down at the cemetery
you must admit we have the spirit scary
the ghosts were near down at the cemettry

people be who they be
when they are born in a cemetary
when you're born in a cemetary
its true life can hit you hard

dying is a certainty
but it's true life's not that scary
but who am I to say
I was born in a graveyard

heed my sweet intonation
life is overrated
be my great elevation
time is almost fated
Track Name: Poor Lazarus
Well the high sheriff told the deputy
"I want you to find me Lazarus"
and bring him dead or alive

Well the deputy told the high sheriff
"I ain't gonna mess with Lazarus"
he's a dangerous man

Well the high sheriff found Lazarus
he was hiding in the middle of a mountain
with his head hung down

Well Lazarus told the high sheriff
"I ain't never gonna be arrested
by no one man"

Well the high sheriff shot Lazarus
shot him with a mighty big number
with a .45

Well they took him, Poor Lazarus
Took him to the commissary gallery
He said "my wounded side"

He's a dangerous man
With a .45
With his head hung down
Bring him dead or alive
Track Name: Devil's Witness
Woke up next to the devil one morning
Eyes were firey and red like the sun
Woke up next to the devil one morning
Kissed me sweetly tasted like rum

I never sin again

Tried to convince myself I was dreaming
I repent for the things I have done
Open mouthed, I was wide-eyed and screaming
Oh the devil, he merely looked on

I never sin again

Don't deny me, the devil he whispered
For I see in your soul what you want
Well the devil's a mighty good kisser
He's persuasive with word and with tongue

I'm sinning once again

Well the devil's kiss is as sweet as his touch is
Making certain that you kiss and you tell
With your tender soul in his evil clutches
He will pull you to the depths of his hell

I never sin again

Oh you women of fire and of fountain
Heed the lesson in what I have said
Your childrens' children will know my recounting
Of when I took the devil to bed

I never sin again
Track Name: The House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call The Rising Sun
And it's the been of many a poor girl
And God, I know I'm one.

If I'd only listened to what my mother said
I'd be at home today
But being so young and foolish, lord
That a gambler lead me astray

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My sweetheart was a drunk, lord
Reach down, in New Orleans

Someone go tell my baby sister
Never to do what I have done
And to sow in that house of sin and misery
They call The Rising Sun

I'm going back to New Orleans
My race is almost run
And I'm going back to live my life, oh lord
Beneath the Rising Sun.
