Track Name: Evil of Man
When he rides into town
The men all act like beaten dogs
When he talks its like a shout
And they all quiver at the sound

And all the lies that poor out,
Like smoke from his twisted mouth
He is just the type of hound
The preacher man warned you about

He likes his women and he likes them loose
He’s killed for less than bread or booze
He’s taken all from many a fool
Because he’s got nothing to lose

And I’m not one to condone the deed
But its just what this town needs
I pray to God that someone cracks
And puts a bullet in his back

Who will stand up to the evil of Man?
Track Name: The Day Will Come
He’s drunk enough to drown
In the darkest parts of town
Where the God fearing never go

And he speaks blasphemies
Through clenched teeth
The words of a damned soul

The day will come when his wretched Life will end
The day will come when he’ll pay for all of his sins

Worn leather face
And eyes like the plague
Holding horrors untold

Blood red hands
With innocent death
And countless crimes so cold

The day will come when his forsaken soul will pass
The day will come when the devil will laugh last
Track Name: Blind Eye
Improvised Instrumental
Track Name: Find Him
When we found him
He had drowned him
In the river

Left for dead with
A piece of lead
In his back

We’ll find the bastard who did this,
Come Break of day,
We’ll bring him to justice,
Sure as hell we’ll make him pay

The house was cinder
And charred tinder
Burned to the ground

The men inside
Were burned alive
As he walked away

We’ll find the bastard who did this,
Come Break of day,
We’ll bring him to justice,
Sure as hell we’ll make him pay
Track Name: Church Bells
He widowed his bride
And his children they cried
So we put him in the ground
At the edge of town

And the church bells told
Of a murder cold
And the hymns they rose
As the casket closed

He’s covered in dirt
As we consoled the hurt
We spoke words that were kind
With vengeance on mind

And the church bells told
Of a murder cold
And the hymns they rose
As the casket closed

He took a life before its time
An unspeakable crime
One single bloody act
And he’s never coming back
Track Name: Hang the Man
We starved the dogs for days
In a cage made of steel
Til they were rabid and crazed
They’ll soon be on your heals

You’ve taken to the hills
As you try to flee
From the blood that you’ve spilt
And your many wicked deeds

And now the hounds are loose
They are barking your fate
We’re preparing a noose
For to take your life away


Hang the Man
Before the night is done
Hang the Man
before the break of dawn


The buzzards circle
Above them gallows they fly
They scream and they call
For a wicked man to die

They church bells rang
For the widowed and the hurt
They’ve gathered to see you
Hang and justice being served

And now them hounds are loose
They are barking your fate
We’re preparing a noose
For to take your life away

Hang the Man
Before the night is done
Hang the Man
before the break of dawn
Track Name: Aint Got Nothin
Ain't Got Nothin On Me

The ghosts now crowd this town
They keep their bones safe under ground
But he aint got nothin on me

His dogs are on the prowl
I can hear them bark and howl
But he aint got nothin on me

The fields are now aflame
And that fire will not be tamed
But he aint got nothin on me

The smoke may fill the sky
And blot out the light
but he aint got nothin on me

His unchecked cruelties
Have got this town on its knees
But he aint got nothin on me

And now he’s outside my door
On his pale white horse
But he aint got nothin on me

He aint got nothin on me
That devil aint got nothin on me
Track Name: Blood n Dirt
The blood and dirt,
Like a whiskey mix
His life pours out
on the desert sand

He fell for the devil
And all of his tricks
Worst is the fear
Of a soul to be damned

Denial ebbs
And turns to despair
No one to hear
A dying man’s lies

His pleas they fall
On the cold night air
Alone does the
Wicked man die
