Machine Gun Man Lyrics:

Tell me what a young man Mama
What's he got to live for
Tossed in the shuffle of everyday war
Searchin' for some trouble
Which I'm sure he will find
Spend your whole life fightin' son
Meet your dyin' time

It's a shame
It's a shame
The trigger be his only friend
It's a shame, oh yeh
But it ain't never gonna end

He's a bucketful of hate
That don't give a damn
What fate awaits the machine gun man?
Well, he ain't got no future
And he ain't got no plan
What fate awaits the machine gun man?

I can't see tomorrow
And I don't see today
Trail of confusion done leadin' my way
They say the only thing worth killin' Lord
Be killin' time
I say the only soul worth savin' now Mama
Resavin' mine

It's a shame
It's a shame
The trigger be his only friend
It's a shame, oh yeh
But it ain't never gonna end

He's a bucketful of hate
That don't give a damn
What fate awaits the machine gun man?
Well, he ain't got no future
And he ain't got no plan
What fate awaits the machine gun man?

He keeps shootin' mama like any old fool would do
Lord, the life he be leadin' ain't the one he has to choose
As he walks on out that door
Mama breaks down to cry
As she waves the machine gun man
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Sold My Soul Lyrics:

Without you woman by my side
I'm contemplating suicide torn from all my pride
A man tells me, son that ain't the way
Gonna make a deal with you child
Gonna live another day
Just sign right here son
Everything will be alright

CHORUS:
*Oooo-oh
Ain't nothing I wouldn't do
*Oooo-oh
All & everything for you
*Oooo-oh
Your love is all I know and ever knew
*Oooo
Therefore I have sold my soul for you
*Oooo-oh
*Oooo-oh

I was told by this man it would be worth my while
He'd return me to my woman
Return me to my smile ----
It's all I ask for in this life
Whatever's wrong son he told me he'd make right

Just sign right here child
Everything going to be alright

CHORUS

All for you

SOLO

Just sign right here son
Everything going to be alright

CHORUS
