Loco Howl - Chris O 2016 She’s gearin’ up to rumble down the line 
Carriage is rusty, but her engine’s prime 
Rollin rhythms make the dust clouds churn 
Ah, she’s a steamin’ hot mama with the hellfire burn. Hooter screamin, wheels are rattlin 
Shakin & wailin out her pain 
There ain’t no snow storm wild enough to take the shine off-a this train Lord nothing can take the shine off this train. I’ve got the Loco Growl! You know this engine can shuffle, slide and growl 
The jellyroll blues with a loco howl 
Rollin rhythms make the crankshafts turn 
Red hot rockin, with a hellfire burn Got the Loco Howl. Owwww! I’ve got the Loco Growl See her gearin’ to rumble down the line 
Carriage is rusty, but her engine’s prime 
Rollin rhythms make the dust clouds churn 
She’s a steamin’ hot mama with the hellfire burn. Lord, got the Loco Howl! I’ve got the Loco Growl! Grrr That train I ride’s got a hellfire burn! Oh yeah! She’s got a hellfire burn. Whoo Hoo, Whoo Hoo, Whoo Hoo,

Workin the Cotton Fields Chris O © June 2014 You see that man He’s got something on his mind See that man Worries on his mind Clothes are ragged dirty Eyes done lost their shine. He gets up in the morning before Rooster cries for day. Wakes up in the morning, Rooster ain’t even crowed the day Comes home in the dark hours Too tired to even pray Too tired to even pray Well there’s bread here on the table, Roof above our heads He puts bread on the table The children all get fed But he’s out there workin the Cotton Fields Worryin. Out there workin the Cotton Fields Worryin, hard times ahead. The Rich are getting richer While the poor ones scratch for dimes. And out there in the Cotton Fields Eyes done lost their shine. Out there in the Cotton Fields Eyes done lost their shine. Out there in the Cotton Fields Eyes done lost their shine. They want us to jump down, turn around And pick a bale of cotton Jump down, turn around And pick a bale of hay.

I had me a real flash dresser, with a pearly smile And a gold chain on his chest.

Hesitating Wedding Ring Blues Chris O © April 2014 Third time lucky, or third time bad? Goodbye lonely, or hello sad? Hmmm hmmm Got the hesitating wedding ring blues. Third time doubting, or third time true? Swore I wouldn’t do it, but I’m stuck on you Hmm Hmm Got them hesitating gold ring blues Well I’m the kind of girl who will never say die, But the monkey on my back whispers “Don’t even try!” Only just got over numbers 1 and 2 So why oh Babe am I defenceless with you? “Love you darling ‘til the day I die”, or “It’s all over! Baby bye bye!” Hmmm With the hesitating wedding blues. Tho I gave away dancing, and my hot rod car, Won’t stop honky tonkin this ole guitar! Ain’t the kind of girl to wait around at home But with you around Babe it’s hard to stay alone Third time lucky or third time bad? Goodbye lonesome, or hello sad? Hmm Hmm Got the hesitating wedding ring blues Third time lucky, or third time mad? Goodbye lonely, or hello sad? Hmmm hmmm Got the hesitating wedding ring blues.
