Lyrics

Gallow's HIll

Written By: Doug Burton (Plain Dirty Blues)

Gallow's Hill (based on PEI)

Well I'm walking to the alehouse, got two pennies in my hand
Well I'm walking to the alehouse, got two pennies in my hand
You know I work both night and day, but I don't even own my land

The King he takes my taxes, far away from PEI
The King he takes my taxes, far away from PEI
And I work until my back breaks, or I just lay down and die

My son brought home some bread and wine, just so we'd all have our fill
My son brought home some bread and wine, just so we'd all have our fill
But he stole it from the market, now he's marching to Gallow's Hill

Well I'm walking to the alehouse, got two pennies in my hand
Well I'm walking to the alehouse, got two pennies in my hand
You know I work both night and day, but I don't even own my land

Unfit

Written By: Doug Burton (Plain Dirty Blues)

Unfit

I'm gonna tie your hands, gonna tie your feet
Gonna whisper nasty words, behind your cheek
I'm gonna do ya, I'm gonna do you right
I'm gonna do you right, ain't nobody comin home

I've had enough of your lip, had enough of your face
There's a bird on my shoulder , and he's tellin me some stuff
I'm gonna do ya, I'm gonna do you right
I'm gonna do you right, ain't nobody comin home

I Ain't Got

Written By: Jason Furness (Plain Dirty Blues)

I Ain't Got

if i ain't got one sure mama i ain't got two x2
why ya rattle my bones mama oh so hard?
gonna cry with the rain down in the yard...

if i ain't got you sure mama i would be blue x2

and if i ain't rich...well i guess that makes me poor x2
that got nothing on the size of my heart,
won't ya settle down mama, don't even start
rattle that rolling pin at me out the door

if i aint got you sure mama i would be blue x2

guitar solo

repeat 1st verse lyrics

if i ain't got you sure mama i would be blue x3
