Track Name: A Leg, a Thigh, and a Biscuit
A leg, a thigh, and a biscuit,
A dollar forty nine.
That’s all I want at this time.

A leg, a thigh, and a biscuit,
A dollar forty nine.
That’s all I’ve got at this time.

A man of means, or so it seems,
Is never satisfied.
That goes to show, you never know,
What you can get until you try.

A leg, a thigh, and a biscuit,
A dollar forty nine.
That’s all I want at this time.

A leg, a thigh, and a biscuit,
A dollar forty nine.
That’s all I want all the time.
Track Name: When Night Falls Across the Land
You can toast to the better man.
You can raise your glass up high.
Run around with your heart in hand,
Until the day you die.
You can promise that you’ll follow love
Across the desert sand.
But it’ll all be good enough
When night falls across the land.

Love, it goes around and ‘round like a BB in a can,
And if we don’t do what we should,
We’re doin’ what we can.
And if we help each other through,
We’ll come to understand.
It’ll all be good enough
When night falls across the land.

Some people live their life
Like there was a master plan,
But only time will tell,
What is the measure of a man.
If you face uncertainty,
You have to take a stand.
And it’ll all be good enough
When night falls across the land.
It’s gonna get a little rough
When night falls across the land.
Track Name: Viva la Rosa
Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

With her hands she would work. With her heart she would pray. 
With her lips she would laugh. With her arms greet the day.
With her song she would sing. With her feet she would dance. 
With her smile she would soothe. With her eyes make romance.

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

The clouds will come in and the rain will fall. 
The sun will rise up and dry it all. 
The wind will come down and blow it all away. 
The roses will bloom on another day. 

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

Now I am gone so far from home. Recuérdeme mi corazón.
Dé las gracias por el día. I give thanks for the day.
Mariposa de la felicidad, don’t fly away.

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 
Track Name: Corina Ain't Here No More
Corina's been sneakin’ through the alley. 
Corina's been spotted at the liquor store. 
One thing I can say for certain
Corina, she ain't here no more. 
She ain't here no more.

Corina's been working down at the cannery. 
Corina's been dancin' at The Blue Door. 
Corina's been out walkin' with Big Daddy. 
But Corina, she ain't here no more. 
She ain't here no more.

Corina's got her dirty laundry. 
Corina knows what love is for. 
Corina, she shot the sheriff. 
But Corina, she ain't here no more. 
She ain't here no more.
She ain't here no more.

Corina was the life of the party. 
Corina sent the soldiers off to war. 
Corina used to be on my radio. 
Now Corina, she ain't here no more. 
She ain't here no more.
She ain't here no more.
Track Name: Hard Times
Hard times, they come and they go. 
Hard times, they say they're good for your soul. 
Hard times, that's not what I say. 
I just wish hard times would go away. 

Hard times, we've all had a few. 
Hard times, you know it's true. 
Hard times, I'm gonna shake em. 
These hard times won't break me in two. 

Pearls of wisdom before the swine,
Turn the water into the wine. 
There's no miracle that can save me this time, 
When my time has come. 

Hard times, I don't mean to suggest
Hard times, that we've all been blessed
Hard times, just put em to rest,
Like an unwanted guest, hard times. 
Just put em to rest, hard times
