Track Name: I Still Love You
Lyrics:

Well I love you baby, I love you all the time
Want you by my side girl, you're so fine
Well I love you, yes I love you
Yes I love you baby, I love you all the time

I wanted to go out with my friends, you said it would be alright
One hour later you call me, you say I've been out all night
I still love you, yes I still love you
Yes I love you baby, I love you all the time

I bought myself a dog, I thought it would be my friend
You told me to get out and don't come back again
Well I love you, yes I still love you
I still love you baby, I love you til the end of time

I wanted to go out with my friends, you said it would be alright
One hour later you call me, you say I've been out all night
I love you, yes I still love you
Yes I love you baby, I love you all the time

I bought myself a dog, I thought it would be my friend
You told me to get out and don't come back again
Well I still love you, yes I still love you
Yes I still love you baby, I love you all the time
Track Name: Miss Yvondelle
Lyrics:

Let me tell you 'bout Yvondelle
Breakfast lady at the Comfort Inn
She'll look after you oh so well
You'll be sure to go back again
We love you Miss Yvondelle
Oh yes we do

She brought us bacon, eggs,
little pastries and hot sauce too
We love you Miss Yvondelle
Oh yes we do

Sausage, grits and waffles
You won't go hungry in Clarksdale, Mississippi
We love you Miss Yvondelle
Oh yes we do

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach
Well, i don't know if that's true
Oh but Miss Yvondelle
We sure love you

Oh yes we do
'Cause you treat us like kings
and you always look pretty in the morning
Oh Miss Yvondelle
Track Name: Tithe Y'all (Buy Your Way)
Lyrics:

Life sometimes can get you down
A little healin might turn you round
All you gotta do is congregate
Come on y'all put some money in the plate
You gotta tithe y'all, you gotta tithe y'all

Let's talk about the mighty dollar bill
You think I'll take you up that hill
I'm gonna try to tell you the truth
Not here to tell you what to do
You gotta tithe y'all, you gotta tithe y'all

Bless you for tuning in
Well it's time to atone for your sins
Dial 1-800-praisethelord
And get ready with your credit card
We're not here to be funny
But God's work costs lots of money
Start your path to Heaven today
Just pray and buy your way
Buy your way, buy your way
You gotta tithe y'all, you gotta tithe y'all

Dial and pledge a ten
For a personal amen
We could really do with twenty
'cause my Cadillac fuel tank's empty
Fifty will show the Lord
That you really want to get on board
Send your money today
Just pay and buy your way
Buy your way

If life is causing you pain
Jesus is the name of the game
Brothers and sisters are you biding time
Let's get together, abiding in the vine
You gotta abide in the vine, abide in the vine

Come on in leave your sin at the door
Come on in, repent, sin no more
Praise him, rise and shine, 400!
This ain't no five and dime
You gotta tithe y'all, you gotta tithe y'all
Track Name: Rollin' Coal
Lyrics:

Breaker, Breaker, Breaker c'mon
Breaker, Breaker, I got my boots on
Well come on baby, here I go
Down to the Gulf of Mexico

Five-nine, five speed, I'm rollin' coal
Oh Lord, Mount Zion, bless my soul
I got a Trump bumper sticker, 'Save the Nation'
Hand car wash, BP station

Hey Gear Jammer, let's go!
I'm rollin' coal, feel good!

Hey John Deere, five dollar bill,
I can hear you fine going up that hill
I see the police in my rear view mirror
Alligator skin shoes I got to deliver

C'mon Trump! Save the nation!
Make America great again!

Hey John Deere, five dollar bill,
Hear you fine a-going up that hill
I see the police in my rear view mirror
Alligator skin shoes I got to deliver

C'mon Trump! Save the nation!
Make America great again!
Breaker, can you hear me?
Five point nine! Shiftin' gears!
Breaker c'mon!
Track Name: Big Red
Lyrics:

I can’t understand how they got you on this flight
You only got half your as in the seat, and Lord that just ain’t right
If the back of your chair can’t take no more and gives in
I’m gonna have two broken legs and your red head under my chin

Big Red, Big Red
Your neck is fatter than your head
Big Red, Big Red
Please don’t break my leg

“Chair upright for take-off” is what she said
You yelled at her “it is upright” and her pretty face went red
It ain’t her fault that you weigh four hundred pounds
You should be damn thankful that the plane got off the ground

Big Red, Big Red
Your neck is fatter than your head
Big Red, Big Red
You should have took a train instead

It’s a good thing I decided not to eat
Coz if I did my food tray would be somewhere near my feet
And I’m glad this flight is only for one hour
Coz you’re soaking wet and I know you ain’t had no shower

Big Red, Big Red
Your neck is fatter than your head
Big Red, Big Red
You smell like something dead
