Track Name: The Reds
i drove down south to tennessee
my world was troublin' me
i cried myself out of my shoes
singin' the deepest of blues

but the blues rip me to shreds
so tonight i‘m singin’ the reds

the moment I gave you my love
i angered the skies above
now I cringe at the thought of your touch
i guess ‘cause I loved you that much

the blues rip me to shreds
so tonight i‘m singin’ the reds

the moon up ahead was tainted blood red
i looked it straight in the eye
it told me to tell you goodbye

now, darlin’ if i’d been untrue
i wouldn't ask nothin’ of you
but i made my final decree
honey now your just foolin’ with me

you know the blues rip me to shreds
so tonight i‘m singin’ the reds
the blues rip me to shreds
so tonight i‘m singin’ the reds
Track Name: Regretfully
i stay out late, i dance all night
i look great i feel all right
i might have a drink and act real cool
try to think what a fool
i am for letting you go
most of the time i’m set
i don’t regret anything yet

you’re either out riding late
or you’re asleep before eight
you’re drinkin' whiskey, getting swirled
then signing up to save the world
but you’re never where i expect that you’ll be
why cant i lay this to rest?
i always said id have no regrets

i’m not singing to confuse you more
i’m singing to clarify
i love you more than i loved you before
and I'm gonna make you mine, i will

i broke your heart, i thought i was smart
i though we needed to be apart
and it's not the huggin' or the kissin'
it’s your smile that i’m missin’
and now that you’re gone i’m afraid
that you learned to be stubborn from me
and we are both living regretfully
Track Name: Hughes' Blues (words by Langston Hughes)
From the poem "Life is Fine" by Langston Hughes

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn’t,
So I jumped in and sank.

I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn’t a-been so cold
I might’ve sunk and died.

But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.

I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn’t a-been so high
I might’ve jumped and died.

But it was High up there! It was high!

So since I’m still here livin’,
I guess I will live on.
I could’ve died for love—
But for livin’ I was born

Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry—
I’ll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.

Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
