Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      If you see me walkin' down the line
      with my fav'rite honky tonk in mind,
      well, I'll be here around suppertime
      with my can of dinner and a bunch of fine.

      Beer drinkers and hell raisers, yeah.
      Uh-huh-huh, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

      The crowd gets loud when the band gets right,
      steel guitar cryin' through the night.
      Yeah, try'n to cover up the corner fight
      but ev'rything's cool 'cause they's just tight.

      Beer drinkers and hell raisers, yeah.
      Huh, baby, don't you wanna come with me?
      Ah, play it boy.

      The joint was jumpin' like a cat on hot tin.
      Lord, I thought the floor was gonna give in.
      Soundin' a lot like a House Congressional
      'cause we're experimental and professional.

      Beer drinkers, hell raisers, yeah.
      Well, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

Master Of Sparks
(Billy Gibbons)
      High class Slim came floatin' in
      down from the county line.
      Just gettin' right on Saturday night,
      ridin' with some friends of mine.
      They invited me just to come and see
      just what was on their minds
      and then I took my first long look
      at the Master of Sparks on high.

      In the back of Jimmy's Mack
      stood a round steel cage
      welded into shape by Slim,
      made out of sucker gauge.
      How fine, they cried, now with you inside,
      strapped in there safe and sound.
      I thought, my-o-my, how the sparks will fly
      if that thing ever hit the ground.

      Slim was so pleased when I had eased
      into his trap of death.
      He had slammed the door but I said no more
      and I though I'd breathed my last breath.
      We was out in the sticks down Highway Six
      and the crowd was just about right.
      The speed was too, so out I flew
      like a stick of rollin' dynamite.

      When I hit the ground you could hear the sound
      and see the sparks a country mile.
      End over end I began to spin
      but the ball started runnin' wild.
      But it was too late as I met my fate
      and the ball started gettin' hot.
      But through the sparks and the flame I knew that the claim
      of the Master of Sparks was gone.

Hot, Blue And Righteous
(Billy Gibbons)
      Hot, blue and righteous,
      an angel called me aside.
      Hot, blue and righteous,
      said, "Stick by me and I'll be your guide."

      I heard the words as I closed my eyes
      down on my, down on my bended knees.
      It fit like a glove and I realized
      somethin' good's happenin' to me.

      Hot, blue and righteous
      angel called me aside.
      Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Move Me On Down The Line
(Billy Gibbons & Dusty Hill)
      When I hear that Santa Fe start blowin'
      I wonder where it's been and where it's goin'.

      I tell you, boy, every time
      the feelin' sure is fine.
      Just move me on down the line,
      just move me on down the line.

      Then I heard Red Rooster start his crowin'
      around the curve that cloud of smoke was blowin'.

      I tell you, boy, every time
      the feelin' sure is fine.
      Just move me on down the line,
      just move me on down the line.

      I'll be where the big wheels keep on turnin'
      and the diesel drivers keep them engines burnin'.

      I tell you, boy, every time
      the feelin' sure is fine.
      Just move me on down the line,
      just move me on down the line.

      Move me on down the line, move me on down.
      Move me on down the line, move me on down.

Precious And Grace
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Ridin' top the floodway on a Friday night,
      the landscape's a fine and nat'ral sight.
      Just cruisin' slow through the dark of night.
      With Precious and Grace ev'rything's all right.

      Good God Almighty, we was goin' down slow,
      yeah, if we knew just where we had to go.
      Cryin', just a flyin' down a put out road
      with Precious and Grace in my flathead Ford.

      So if you're out rollin' late some night,
      yeah, and you need that supernatural delight, I'm talkin' to you, brother,
      I know somebody's, they's just out of sight.
      Get with Precious and Grace, they gonna treat you right.

La Grange
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Rumour sprendin' a-'round in that Texas town
      'bout that shack outside La Grange
      and you know what I'm talkin' about.
      Just let me know if you wanna go
      to that home out on the range.
      They gotta lotta nice girls.

      Have mercy.

      A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
      A haw, haw, haw.

      Well, I hear it's fine if you got the time
      and the ten to get yourself in.
      A hmm, hmm.
      And I hear it's tight most ev'ry night,
      but now I might be mistaken.
      hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

      Have mercy.

Shiek
(Billy Gibbons & Dusty Hill)
      I met a shiek from Mozambique
      who led me to the Congo.
      He dreamed to go to Mexico
      and sample a burrito.

      My tempature had risen again,
      it must have been a hundred and ten.

      Under the oaks I was telling some jokes
      and thinkin' I had it made-
      Gettin' on with the folks, havin' some Coke
      and coolin' off in the shade.

      My tempature had risen again,
      and it must have been a hundred and ten.

      I took a boat that couldn't float
      to Rio de Janeiro.
      So with my scuba I swam to Cuba
      bur I'll be gone tomorrow.

      My tempature had risen again,
      it must have been a hundred and ten.
