Track Name: Pardon Me
I gotta step out,
on my own
Take all these excuses,
Tell them all to get blown

Pardon me,
I'm makin' moves
And I don't know which path to choose
Makin' moves

Risk assessors,
Don't hold your breath.
Bill collectors,
I may be late on rent

Pardon me,
I'm makin' moves
Taking chances, singing blues
Makin' moves

Pardon me,
I'm makin' moves
Traveling the land, searching for clues
Lord knows if I'll win or lose
Makin' moves
Track Name: Ain't That Workin'
Well I'm workin 9-5, down at the chicken shack
They work a poor boy to death, ain't that a fact Jack?
I support myself, I pay my rent
By the time I pay my bills, I ain't got a damn thing left.

Aint that workin, Glory be ain't that workin child
Work your hands to the bone, give all you got till it's gone
Ain't that workin

Listen to the boss man, tellin me to pick up the slack
Well he must not be looking, at the same clock I'm looking at
Always sayin' I need this, boy won't you go do that?
Brother if I ever get out of here, you can bet I won't be back.
Track Name: Set In Her Ways
I got a hard headed woman, hard headed woman of my own.
She's so set in her ways, you'd think her head was made of stone.

When she's right, she's right
When she's wrong she's right too
If you try and tell her different
Boy, do I pity you.

She treats me kindly,
And cleans up nice.
Anybody try and step on her toes,
They'll surely pay the price.

She cooks my meals,
She cleans the house.
Don't let that fool you,
Into thinking she's a mouse.

She'll get it all done,
Both day and night.
Don't try and get in her way,
Or then you'll see her might.

Oh, I love my hard headed woman
The way she rock me through the night.
And with her there, by my side
I can't help but see the light.
Track Name: Diggin' A Ditch
Diggin a ditch, ain't no fun
When you work like a dog, in the hot, hot sun
Doin my time 'til the work gets done
I'll be diggin this ditch in the hot summer sun

Working all day in the hot, hot sun
Let me tell ya people, it ain't much fun
I can't quit now much as I might like to
Oooh, I got too much work to do

Layin the line all day long
9 to 5, just singing this song
Sun comes up and the sun goes down
I'll be swinging this hammer round and round

Working all day in the hot, hot sun
Let me tell ya people, it ain't much fun
I can't quit now much as i might like to
Oooh, I got too much work to do
Track Name: Road Call
Strap up them boot laces,
And fill my coffee cup.
Going to walk right out that door,
When the morning sun comes up.

'Cause I hear that road a calling,
Callin', callin out my name
And I know if I don't listen
I'll never be the same.

Every now again I get settled,
Think I'm happy with what I've found
Before I know it my feet start moving
And I'm off to another town

Could find a pretty lady,
Fall in love and focus on my health
But I know, yes I know
I'd only be fooling myself

Who knows where I'm going
Hopefully everywhere
Lord knows if when I get back
Ooh, she'd even care.
