Drowning Man 03:06
Marseilles 03:12
Down and out in Marseilles burning time, another game to play wrapped up in sheets on the windowsill looking down onto the street Maria says when the sun goes down she's gonna take you to the bar, gonna buy you another round With some of those new unmarked bills and in two days time you're gonna split this town (chorus:) Don't shout don't shoot, they'll never listen to you The next night in your room Maria lays the plans out under the moon The next door down the hall a dim light and your landlady's ear to the wall She's a woman with an iron kiss a mind like a sieve and a heart clenched like a fist Got designs on your old gold watch but her eyes talk sweet when she's slipping it off of your wrist (chorus) Ten a.m. in the square across the street you're in the bank with money to spare you're still holding the gun and you see the cops as you step into the midday sun Maria's got the engine running but you can go to jail or you can go down gunning Give your girl a chance to get back on track if you want to take a fall with the landlady's knife in your back (chorus)
Trying Times 03:37


A mix of older stuff of varying quality: the good, the bad and the ugly.
