    1. Hi-De-Ho

      Hi De Ho
      Hi De Hi
      Gonna Get me
      A piece of the sky
      Gonna get me
      Some of that Old Sweet Roll
      Singin' Hi de hi de hi de hi de Hooooo

      I've been down so low
      Bottom looked like up
      Once I thought that seconds saves
      was enough to fill my cup
      So I proffered all I got
      But it ain't no way to live
      Being taken by the ones who got
      The least amount to give
      Hi de ho
      Hi de hi
      Gonna get me a piece of the sky
      Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
      Singing hi de hi de hi de hi de hooooo.



      Once I met the devil
      He was mighty slick
      Tempted me with worldly goods
      Said -you can have your pick-
      But when he laid that paper on me
      And he showed me where to sign
      I said thank you very kindly
      But I'm in too great a need of mine

      Hi de ho
      Hi de hi
      Gonna get me a piece of the sky
      Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
      Singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de hooooo.
      Hi de ho
      Hi de hi
      Gonna get me a piece of the sky
      Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
      Singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de hoooo

    2. The Battle

      While the king and queen lie sleeping
      And their daughters smile so nice.
      Brothers wait through windows
      And the peasants die for rice.
      And here I'm standing naked
      Laughing madly at the sun.
      Though I wanted to sleep late today
      The Battle's just begun.

      Oh, the Devil in all his wisdom
      The father in all his grace
      The servant's sons are washed in blood
      And the man has run his race

      A moving target looms behind the street where soldiers stood
      Siren screams out desperately
      Like only humans could
      And standing on my balcony
      I watch the battle run
      Yes the war is never over
      But the day is never done

      Oh, the Devil in all his wisdom,
      the father in all his grace,
      The servant's sons are washed in blood
      And the man has run his race.

      Six-white horses like the wind are running,
      Five are far behind
      The captain lost his daughter,
      The sergeant lost his mind.
      The soldiers they still scream for riches
      Even though they swore
      That sons and daughters wouldn't live
      Unless we won the war.

      Oh, the Devil in all his wisdom,
      the father in all his grace,
      The servant's sons are washed in blood
      And the man has run his race.

    3. Lucretia MacEvil

      Lucretia MacEvil
      Little girl what's your game?
      Hard luck and trouble
      Bound to be your claim to fame
      Tail-shakin' home-breakin' truckin' through town
      Each and every country-mother's son, hangin' 'round
      Drive a young man insane
      Evil that's your name
      Lucretia MacEvil
      That's the thing you're doin' fine
      Back seat Delilah
      Got your six-foot jug o'wine, woman
      I hear your mother was the talk of the sticks
      Nothin' that your daddy wouldn't do for kicks
      Never done a thing worth-while
      Evil woman-child.
      (spoken) ooh, Lucy, you just so damn bad
      (Instrumental Interlude)
      (Bridge) Devil got you lucy
      Under lock and key
      Ain't about to set you free
      Sign sealed and witnessed
      Since the day you were born
      No use tryin' to fake him out
      No use tryin' to make him out
      Soon, he'll be takin' out his due
      What-cha goin' to do?
      Ooh, Lucy MacEvil
      Honey, ya been all night?
      Your hair's all messed up babe
      And the clothes you're wearin'
      Just don't fit ya right
      Big Daddy Joe's, payin' your monthly rent
      Tells his wife he can't imagine where the money went
      Dressin' you up in style, evil woman-child
      (spoken) Ooh, Lucy, you just so damn bad
      (Instrumental Interlude)

      (spoken) Awe, here she comes, trouble
      Well Lucy, walkin' down main street, lookin'
      Well, tell me 'bout it
      Where ya' been girl?!
      Stop lyin', stop lyin', stop lyin', Lucy!
      Ooooh, tell the truth girl!
      (Instrumental Interlude)

    4. Lucretia's Reprise

      Ah, here she comes
      Truckin'
      Well, Lucy
      Walkin' down main street lookin' down
      Looks like a Wow!
      Talk about it!

      Stop lyin'
      Stop lyin'
      Stop lyin'
      Lucy

      (Incredible Trumpet Solo)
      (DC-T shouts until fade)

    5. Fire And Rain

      Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
      Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
      I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
      I just canít remember who to send it to

      Iíve seen fire and Iíve seen rain
      Iíve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
      Iíve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      But I always thought that Iíd see you again

      Wonít you look down upon me, jesus
      Youíve got to help me make a stand
      Youíve just got to see me through another day
      My bodyís aching and my time is at hand
      And I wonít make it any other way

      Oh, Iíve seen fire and Iíve seen rain
      Iíve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
      Iíve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      But I always thought that Iíd see you again

      Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun
      Lord knows when the cold wind blows itíll turn your head around
      Well, thereís hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things
      To come
      Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

      Oh, Iíve seen fire and Iíve seen rain
      Iíve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
      Iíve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      But I always thought that Iíd see you, baby, one more time again, now

      Thought Iíd see you one more time again
      Thereís just a few things coming my way this time around, now
      Thought Iíd see you, thought Iíd see you fire and rain, now

    6. Lonsome Suzie

      Lonesome Susie
      Never got the breaks
      She's always losing
      So she sits and cries and shakes

      It's so hard just to watch her
      And if I touch her,
      Oh poor Susie
      I'm wondrin' what to do

      She just sits there, hoping for a friend
      I don't fit here, but I may have a friend to lend
      Maybe I mistook her
      But I can't overlook her
      Must be someone
      Who can pull her through.

      Anyone who felt that bad
      Could tell me what to say
      Even if she'd just get mad
      She might be better off that way

      And where is all the understanding
      I know your problem
      Can't be that demanding
      Why is it she looks that way
      Ev'ry time ev'ry time she starts to cry
      Oh lonesome Susie
      I can't watch you crying no longer

      Baby if you can use me
      'n-till you fill just a little bit Stronger, baby
      I guess just watching you
      Has made me lonesome too
      Why don't we get together
      What else can we do?

    7. Symphony / Sympathy For The Devil

      Please allow me to introduce myself
      I'm a man of wealth and taste
      I've been around for a long, long years
      Stole many a man's soul and faith

      And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
      Had his moment of doubt and pain
      Made damn sure that Pilate
      Washed his hands and sealed his fate

      Pleased to meet you
      Hope you guess my name
      But what's confusing you
      Is just the nature of my game

      I stuck around St. Petersburg
      When I saw it was a time for a change
      Killed the czar and his ministers
      Anastasia screamed in vain

      I rode a tank
      Held a general's rank
      When the blitzkrieg raged
      And the bodies stank, Oh!

      Pleased to meet you
      Hope you guess my name,
      And what's confusing you
      Is just the nature of my game,

      I watched with glee
      While your kings and queens
      Fought for ten decades
      For the gods they made

      I shouted out,
      "Who killed the Kennedys?"
      When after all
      It was you and me

      Let me please introduce myself
      I'm a man of wealth and taste
      Been around for many a year
      Laid many a man's soul to waste

      Pleased to meet you
      Hope you guessed my name
      But what's confusing you
      Is just the nature of my game

      Just as every cop is a criminal
      And all the sinners saints
      As heads is tails
      Just call me Lucifer
      'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

      So if you meet me
      Have some courtesy
      Some sympathy, and some taste
      Use all your well-learned politesse
      Or I'll lay your soul to waste, YEAH!

      Pleased to meet you
      Hope you guessed my name
      But what's confusing you
      Is just the nature of my game

    8. He's A Runner

      He's a runner and he'll run away,
      Soon there'll be no man.
      Woman ain't been born that can make him stay,
      Woman get away while you can.

      He's a runner and he'll run away
      On the midnight train.
      Woman ain't been born who can make him stay,
      Come the judgement day,
      Come the rain

      He'll go running, don't ask him not to
      You know he's got to go
      He'll only leave you and run off with tomorrow
      Leave you in chains till you die.

      He's a runner and he'll run away.
      Soon there'll be no man.
      Woman ain't been born that can make him stay,
      Woman get away while you can.
      He's a runner, he's a runner and he's got to run,
      He's got to run away.

    9. Somethin' Comin' On

      Something coming on, don't know what it is but it's getting stronger
      Feeling in my bones, hope you let it last a little bit longer
      Breaking out my head, doing things I never even dreamed of
      Rolling up my spine, turning on the things that'd never been turned on
      Suddenly she came in
      Looked like she'd been gaming
      Doing things with everybody else
      When I called out loudly
      She answered kind o' proudly
      She spent her life upon the shelf

      Something coming on, don't know what it is but it's getting stronger
      I've got a feeling in my bones, and I hope you let it last a little bit longer
      Breaking out my head, I've been doing things I never even dreamed of
      Well, rolling up my spine, turning on my things that'd never been turned on

      Talk about the woman

      [Horns / Keyboard Break]

      Suddenly she came in
      Looked like she'd been gaming
      Doing things with everybody else
      When I called out loudly
      She answered kind o' proudly
      She spent her life upon the shelf

    10. 40,000 Headmen


      Forty thousand headmen couldn't make me change my mind
      If I had to take the choice between the deafman and the blind
      I know just where my feet should go and that's enough for me
      I turned around and knocked them down and walked across the sea

      Hadn't traveled very far when suddenly I saw
      Three small ships a-sailing out towards a distant shore
      So lighting up a cigarette I followed in pursuit
      And found a secret cave where they obviously stashed their loot

      Filling up my pockets, even stuffed it up my nose
      I must have weighed a hundred tons between my head and toes
      I ventured forth before the dawn had time to change its mind
      And soaring high above the clouds I found a golden shrine

      Laying down my treasure before the iron gate
      Quickly rang the bell hoping I hadn't come too late
      But someone came along and told me not to waste my time
      And when I asked him who he was he said, 'Just look behind'

      So I turned around and forty thousand headmen hit the dirt
      Firing twenty shotguns each and man, it really hurt
      But luckily for me they had to stop and then reload
      And by the time they'd done that I was heading down the road
