Track Name: Elevator Heel
Elevator Heel

He took the girls up and down
He left them on the cold cold ground
He didn't care how they would feel
Johnny was an elevator heel
Yeah Johnny was an elevator heel

They walked into his little room
And that was where they sealed their doom
Behind them sliding doors of steel
Johnny was an elevator heel
Yeah Johnny was an elevator heel

And then one day the cable snapped
He landed in the devil's lap
The man in red he wouldn't make no deal
He said Johnny you're an elevator heel
Yeah Johnny you're an elevator heel
Johnny you're an elevator heel
Johnny — doggone — you're just an elevator heel

Track Name: Good Time
Good Time

I am not alone you see
Misery is my company
We go out and we have ourselves a good time

If you see me out about
With a teardrop — hanging out
Goin' with the flow it's just a good time

Bet you thought I'd lose my mind
Sorry but I'm doin' fine

I'll get by with what I got
Even though it ain't a lot
You left me with nothing but a good time

Yeah I'll be hoppin' in a cab
Heartbreak's pickin' up the tab
We'll be goin' out to have a good time

Buy one for my friend tonight
Blues is sittin' on my right
Toast your memory and we'll have a good time

Well I bet you thought I'd lose my way
Sorry but I got to say — I got to say — I got to say
HEY!

I'll get by with what I got
Even though it ain't a lot
You left me with nothin' but a good time

Track Name: House Of Cards
House Of Cards

The wolf is knockin'
Oh don't you hear him
Your House is rockin'
Don't you go near him
You better stop him
Before he starts to blow
It's going to tumble hard
Your little house of cards

For you to make it
It didn't take long
Now when you break it
Won't take no King Kong
One little push and
You'll wind up on the ground
It's going to tumble hard
Your little house of cards

Trading your hearts for diamonds
Now when it falls it's just bad timing

You got the keys and
You got to live there
But when you find there's
Nothing to give there
Don't come expecting
Somebody else to care
It's going to tumble hard
Your little house of cards

Track Name: The Devil's In The Backseat
The Devils' in the backseat
Telling me where to go
Since Jesus left the dash board
I can't find him anymore
He says turn here
Then come round slow
I say where to?
He says I don't know
The Devils' in the backseat
Telling me where to go

The Devil's in the backseat
Man I haven't got a prayer
Since Jesus left the dashboard
I can't find him anywhere
He lights up something
It don't smell right
He says now John
Get ready to fight
The Devils' in the backseat
Man I haven't got a prayer

And now he's in the front seat
I don't think that's a real good sign
He took my Jesus statue
He's playin' tricks with my mind
I know it's him
Because he's red
He's got them big horns
On his head
And now he's in the front seat
I don't think that's a real good sign
The devil's in the front seat
He's playin' tricks with my mind
