Track Name: Hard Times Blues
People ravin' about hard times
I don't know what it's all about
Hard times don't worry me
I was broke before that started out

If you're a single man
go out now and have your fun
If you ever find yourself a woman
I swear your trouble ain't never done

If you're a good lookin' girl
come sit down on my knee
Yes but these good lookin' women
are so daw-gawn hard to please

If you want somethin' for nothin'
you'd better look the other way
yes I'm sorry to say
there ain't enough luck around these days

People ravin' about hard times
I wonder why they should
Hard times don't worry me
I was broke when times were good
Track Name: (I Ain't Gonna Play) Second Fiddle
Listen woman
no I ain't
just gonna sit around and grieve
I've had enough now
pack up your stuff now
yes it's time for you to leave

I guess you thought that I
was pretty dumb
the way you're running around
town having your fun

I ain't gonna play your
second fiddle because
I'm used to playing lead

Yes you may
cook me dinner
but I'll be washing the plates
I guess it was your ambition
to be lead astray
little did I know
how you could misbehave

I guess you thought yourself
pretty clever
cashing all those
crooked cheques

I ain't gonna play your
second fiddle because
I'm used to playing lead

When I took you
to meet me Ma and Pa
my little sister said
son you've gone too far
woman I knew about your
wild ways
but you didn't have to go
and throw them in my face

I guess you thought that I
must have been blind
the way you've been
cheatin' on me all the time

I ain't gonna play your
second fiddle because
I'm used to playing lead

you're gonna be the one to weep
yes go and throw your head down and grieve
and when you begin to cry
don't go askin' me the reason why

I ain't gonna play your
second fiddle because
I'm used to playing lead

you've been jivin'
with the alley cats
all those feathers
you've got in your cap
but woman I'm no
jealous guy
I've just got a strong
idea on my mind

Yes we'll say goodbye
and you won't cross me again
just go and call on
one of your special friends

I ain't gonna play your
second fiddle because
I'm used to playing lead
Track Name: Limelight
I'm prowlin' like the lone wolf
I'm cunning like the fox
I'll play the cards dealt me
nevermind the hand you've got

I'm a young man of good fortune
there's nothing I can't throw away
I'm the cause of all my trouble
had many a jealous day

I was born in the limelight
while a tempest darkened the sky
If the moonshine doesn't kill me
I'll live until the day I die

Please tell me, brave captain,
which is the direction home
there's a woman there I love
from the very marrow of my bones

I was born in the limelight
while a tempest darkened the sky
If the moonshine doesn't kill me
I'll live until the day I die

So pull a comb through my hair
I'm a-gonna turn on my toe
before I'm strapped to the electric chair
for singing Rock 'n' Roll
