  1. Would love to add this new vinyl to my collection which includes DBT’s Southern Rock Opera on clear vinyl.

    • Oops. Messed up. How about…
      “Bury his body in the old sink hole under cold November sky
      Then damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday
      Damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday
      Damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday
      And look the Preacher in the eye. “

  2. I can’t die now,
    ‘Cause I got another show to do

    Rock ethos with facing death head on

  3. “I got 350 heads on a 305 engine
    I get ten miles to the gallon
    I ain’t got no good intentions”

  4. Hope to hear a bunch of Cooley songs in Madison…like this one.

    Getting all excited, finding nothing
    That was never there before
    It’s like bringing flowers to your Mama
    And tracking dog shit all over the floor

    Jesus made the flowers
    But it took a dog to make the story good
    I think about you when I can
    And sometimes when I don’t I probably should

  5. From “Where The Devil Won’t Stay”

    My Daddy played poker on a stump in the woods back when the world was gray
    Before black and white went and chose up sides and gave a little bit of both their way
    The only blood that’s any cleaner is the blood that’s blue or greener
    Without either you just get meaner and the blood you gave gives you away.

  6. I don’t want anything I done to be nobody’s fault
    Even if they got more money and mouth than they got balls
    That’s just how it went down, right or wrong it’s just that way
    Just cause I don’t run my mouth don’t mean I got nothing to say.

  7. You know the bottle ain’t to blame and I ain’t trying to
    It don’t make you do a thing it just lets you
    When I’m six feet underground, I’ll need a drink or two
    And I’ll sure miss you

  8. Eric is our winner! Congrats! Check your e-mail.
