Jeremiah Tall - A Heart At War Oh it's a long hard day The work piles up but that money just don't pay And I dug my way right to the Devil's front gate Oh look upon my face Ain't there something here that you can appreciate With that little bit of money I paid my way to hells gate Even with that bit of change, I couldn't change my ways Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure There's room for one more Oh and now the shit piles up And it rolls downhill until they felt you had enough I got no time to worry or to find peace of mind And I ain't got no patience I'm all out of time Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure There's room for one more Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure There's room for one more Oh and now my mouth salivates Thought of easy money yeah I know it's a dirty game Well I never feel content when I know there's more to gain And I ain't got no shame I know it's a dirty game Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure Oh there's a heart at war The devil dances dirty right at my front door He whispers something clever like come home my boy Come home my boy Come home my boy Come home my boy

Jeremiah Tall - Hard Working Man My father is a hardworking man He spent his year shaping wood by hand And he bought himself a piece of PA land Where he built himself a cabin still it stands My father always was a mountain man He said the beach was filled with too many heads and sand My father spent some nights among the trees Dreaming of his family he must feed For his wife and kids he had to trade that cabin in For his wife and kids he had to trade that cabin in My father is a hardworking man He spent some time working in foreign lands Building homes and re-finishing old things He'd brake his back and his bones for his family My father never was a wealthy man Made his reputation off of his back and hands My father always wanted the best for me For his daughter and his sons he'd surely bleed For his wife and kids he had to trade that cabin in For his wife and kids he had to trade that cabin in For his wife and kids he had to trade that cabin had to trade that cabin in

Jeremiah Tall - I Got A Name I've got nothing up my sleeves I got this dusty old head full of broken dreams Don't you put my back up against the wall Cause I've got nothing to lose, unlike you I've got this dented old can of beans This overpass to keep me dry and free from the breeze Don't you judge and give me your evil eye Cause I've lived this life of hell there’s still more time And I've lived this life of hell well there’s still more time They call me Sam Sam I am They call me Sam Samuel I’ve got this jar of homemade shine Some broken chicken bones, dreams of shoofly pie Don't you underestimate a poor man with pride I’m just like you when I die, I reach for the sky They call me Sam Sam I am They call me Sam Samuel I live on the streets under my feet I walk a poor man’s beat I know the dogs where I eat I know them well I know I got the strength To pick myself up and make this change My momma she gave my name She called me Sam Sam I am They call me Sam Samuel I've got nothing up my sleeves I got this dusty old head full of broken dreams Don't you judge and give me your evil eye I've lived this life of hell and still more time I've lived this life of hell well theres still more time They call me Sam Sam I am They call me Sam Samuel They call me Sam Sam I am Sam I am Sam I am Sam I am

Jeremiah Tall - Where Dandelions Roam I’ve seen these rollin hills I’ve seen where dandelions roam Seen them lay down their roots and seeds And helped their children grow Took my love on over there and I shared with her this view Said “Honey, this is how I wanna spend my days with you” She don’t care I’m aware It’s the life I choose Seen these billowing clouds and heavenly blue skies Seen them fight for acreage in the corners of my eyes I took my love on over there and I shared with her this view Said “Honey, this is how I hope my days don’t end with you” She don’t care I’m aware It’s the life I choose She never asked me how my day has been, son She only pretends to love me when I’m with my friends How can I hold on if I ain’t got a grip, son The best parts of my life when I let go and I slip I’ve seen these rollin hills, I’ve seen these heavenly blue skies Follow my heart to the end of the earth, until the end of time Took my love on over there and I sat her down and smiled Said “Honey, this is how I wanna spend my days for a while” She don’t care I’m aware It’s the life I choose

Jeremiah Tall - Never Surrender Gravedigger man, have you got a fit for me? An old pine box with a cross on the lid. Hey digger man, have you got a plot for me? A shallow grave underneath the old oak tree. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, one by one. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, until there gone. Gravedigger man, have you got some words for me? An old hymn, to set me free. Hey digger man, please don't rush to cover me. With each shovel of dirt its makes it harder to breath. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, one by one. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, until there gone. I ain't asking, I'm telling you... My time has past me but that's old news And I ain’t got a place of mine own, Dust off my close, can't rest these bones. And I'm never gonna give in, I'll never surrender... No not to you! Gravedigger man, am I just like you? An old soul, in a dead man's shoes. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns I'll take them all on, one by one I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, one by one. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, until there gone. I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, one by one I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns. I'll take them all on, until there gone.

Jeremiah Tall - Time I know spring times’ just around the corner Cause I’ve seen those tulips pushing up through the snow last week And it’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time I know summer ain’t too far off now Cause I can smell them honeysuckles growing on them bushes in the yard And it’s times like these that lead me to believe She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine And it’s times like these that lead me to believe I know harvest will sneak up on us fast And them ears in the rows shine gold on a fading sun And it’s times like these that lead me to believe She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine It’s times like these that lead me to believe And I’ve been there before Locked behind closed doors for years And now I know it’s time I make her mine I know winter will bear down on us hard And them great nor'easters blow straight thorough those Pennsylvania woods And it’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time It’s time like these that lead me to believe She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine It’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time

Jeremiah Tall - Two Timing Tommy Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man, Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand I can't stand around while the rich stay rich, The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands I'm gonna ride on in, I'm gonna saddle on up I'm gonna walk right in, I'll shoot a single shot up I'll yell get down on the ground if you want to see your loved ones, Shut up that mouth if you still want to live I said shut up Now fill these bags with money, And make it quick Now fill these bags with money, And don't try any dumb tricks Just give me what I want, And I'll be on my way No one will get hurt, There ain't nothing to say Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man, Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand I can't stand around while the rich stay rich, The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands Well I came here ready to fight if I must, Tell the sheriff to keep his distance And the rest of his department to stay back as well, I ain't afraid to draw my sights on them, And send them to hell Don't take these words for granted, Don't think this is a bluff I killed many men before, And I'll kill you if I must Done battle with the devil, Been sent to do God's work To take from the rich and give to the poor and the sick Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man, Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand I can't stand around while the rich stay rich, The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands Well he ain't no Robin Hood or Mother Teresa, Just a man with a mask and a gun, Doing what he can There ain't no reason for anyone to die, For the lack of money or proper medicine He's a man, He's a bank robbing man He ain't all that bad, He's a bank robbing man Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man, Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man, Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand I can't stand around while the rich stay rich, The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands Well there was a gun fight just as dark fell, In that moment well there was a strong smell Of blood and gun powder, And the loss of many lives In that moment you can see one man survived, Though mortally wounded and covered in blood That man uttered these words that we'll never forget, Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad, Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad, All that bad, All that bad, All that bad, All that bad, All that bad

Working For 03:59
Jeremiah Tall - Working For I guess it's safe to say, The sun will come up today It rises in the east, It'll rest its head in the west again Sorry if I find it hard, To wake up impressed I psych myself up, To work someone else's fields Until my hands fall off, My back is worked raw And I said, "Who am I working for?" I said, "Who am I working for?" I guess it's safe to say, The moon will come out tonight It'll light my way home, And guide my way back to bed again Where I can rest my weary bones, Lay my head down, and catch my breath, I'll do this once again And I said, "Who am I working for?" I said, "Who am I working for?" I gave you the best years of my life, For a small wage And a drinking problem that's grown old and heavy But I won't ask, These questions that you hate May I have, A holiday? I guess it's safe to say, The clouds will roll in today And they'll bring with them the rain, To wash my dirty face And cleanse my trouble soul, I'll find salvation again And I said, "Who am I working for?" I said, "Who am I working for?" I said, "Who am I working for?" I said, "Who am I working for?"

Jeremiah Tall - Salvation I came to you last night With a dirty little secret and a healthy appetite for more Tie my hands and chain me to the floor I came through I got what you need if what you need is me baby Use your spell and potion on me I can't breathe Untie my hands so I can muscle free I can't breathe Oh yeah I came to you last night With a dirty little secret and a healthy appetite for more Tie my hands and chain me to the floor I came through I got what you need if what you need is me baby Use your spell and potion on me I can't breathe Untie my hands so I can muscle free I can't breathe Oh I came to you last night looking for salvation and all I got were my red hands Tie me to the scene again I can't breathe Untie my hands so I can muscle free I can't breathe Oh yeah I can see the passion in your eyes And can feel the fire from hell tonight I can see the devil at your feet He's smiling up at me I came through I got what you need if what you need is me baby Untie me I can't breathe Untie my hands so I can muscle free I can't breathe I can't breathe I can't breathe I can't breathe I can't breathe I can't breathe
