Total plays on over the last 6 months
    Haven’t done as well as I thought I would
    I’m not dead but I’m damaged goods
    And it’s gettin’ late
    I’m a rusty hinge, a squeaky wheel
    At the bad end of a shaky deal
    Hello Cruel World  -  22,366 plays
    On a bus to St. Cloud Minnesota
    I thought I saw you there
    With the snow falling down around you
    Like a silent prayer
    And once on a street in New York city
    On A Bus To St. Cloud  -  10,089 plays
    I built this house with my bare hands
    on the shores of Louisian
    took my sweet cher Jolie-Ann
    for my own – my very own
    now every man has got his pride
    Black Ribbons  -  6,944 plays
    The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane
    raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane
    And I'm covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene
    and no matter what I do I can't get clean
    last thing i remember was your footsteps in the hall
    Blackbirds  -  7,387 plays
    I knew a girl who said that beauty kills
    Dulled the pain with wine and pills
    Took that slow ride down the hill to nowhere
    She said Pompeii crumbled and Athens fell
    Heathens stormed the citadel
