Bales Of Cocaine

Well, I was workin' on my farm 'bout 1982,
Pullin' up some corn and a little carrot, too
When two low-flying aeroplanes, 'bout a hundred feet high
Dropped a bunch o' bales o' somethin', some hit me in the eye...

So I cut a bale open, an' man was I surprised
Bunch o' large sized baggies, with big white rocks inside
So I took a little sample to my crazy brother Joe
He sniffed it up and kicked his heels, said, "Horton, that's some blow!"

Bales of cocaine, fallin' from low-flyin' plane
I don't know who done dropped 'em, but I thank 'em just the same
Bales of cocaine, fallin' like a foriegn rain
My life changed completely by the low-flyin' planes

So I loaded up them bales in my pick-em-up truck,
Headed west for Dallas, where I would try my luck
I didn't have a notion if I could sell 'em there,
But, thirty minutes later, I was a millionaire...

Bales of cocaine, fallin' from low-flyin' plane
I don't know who done dropped 'em, but I thank 'em just the same
Bales of cocaine, fallin' like a foriegn rain
My life changed completely by the low-flyin' planes

And now I am a rich man, but I'm still a farmer, too
But I sold my farm in Texas, bought a farm down in Peru
And when get so homesick, I think I'm goin' insane,
I travel back to Texas in a low-flyin' plane...

Bales of cocaine, fallin' from low-flyin' plane
I don't know who done dropped 'em, but I thank 'em just the same
Bales of cocaine, fallin' like a foriegn rain
My life changed completely by the low-flyin' planes

Baddest Of The Bad

chorus

I'm the baddest of the bad since you've been gone,
The baddest of the bad since you've been gone

I lay around here and i just drink beer
The baddest of the bad since you've been gone

Everything is bad including me,
But being bad is good policy,
It protects me from your past,
till your memory's gone at last
Everything is bad including me.

Young girls and gin may be the cure,
Young girls and gin may be the cure,
I'm talking just as good as you stay pure
Young girls and gin may be the cure.

chorus

I lay around here
And I just drink beer
The baddest of the bad,
Since you've been gone.

chorus

Liquor, Beer And Wine

The doctor says I'm livin'
On precious borrowed time
With all the time I'm givin'
To liquor beer and wine

The X-rays of my liver,
look like molded old swiss cheese
My heart pumps blood and alcohol
Through hardened arteries

Every body knows me
Down at the local bar
I drink until I can't see
And I wonder where you are

I guess I let my health go
Since you quit bein' mine
But there was nothing to replace you
Except liquor beer and wine

Liquor, beer, and wine
Is the flashing sign i see
Ever single morning I get up
It's buzzing down at me

I look up to the heaven's
For a ray of hope to shine
And there it is in neon,
Liquor beer and wine

Ever since you've left me
I've lived out of my car
Parked between the liquor store
And Uncle Bubba's bar

Booze helps ease the heartache
But your constantly in mind
As constant as that buzzing noise
Of Uncle Bubba's sign
