Track Name: Run & Hide
I once knew a man,
His name was Dirty Tom,
He always ran amuck,
He always broke the law,
You couldn't have nothing nice,
Around him at all,
He'd ruin your finest hat,
and blame it on the dog.

I once loaned him cash,
Back in '92
He spent it on cocaine
and drove to Kalamazoo
We never had a ride
He never had a dime
If he ever owed you money,
The motherfucker would run and hide.

The last time I saw that guy,
He dodged a bullet, winked his eye
Said "If you think this is fast,
Wait until I owe a guy.
Well I've had ebough of this money talk
Buddy, I got none.
But if I ever did,
You better watch how fast I run."
Track Name: Life on the Mines
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh

A man wants to work,
He don't have a job,
He's got cold hands,
And coal in his scruff, yeah,
He's got no money,
Hardly enough,
He's got no money,
Hardly enough, and,

His boy went to work,
Later that day,
The wall caved in, now he's
Here to stay.
His family stays hungry,
And unpaid,
His family stays hungry,
And unpaid, oh.

That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh

Now I got a gun,
A gun, a gun,
I kill all the miners
One by one
Well I got a gun,
Didn't you hear?
I'll see you at your grave
This time next year.

Oh, I've I got a gun,
A gun for sure,
I ain't gonna work
At this mine no more.
