I Wished I Had a Penny Well I wished I had me a penny in my hand Lord I wished I had me a penny in my hand Well I wished I had me a Penny Lord knows I ain’t never had that many Now I wished I had me a penny in my hand Well I wish I had me an angel by my side Lord I wish I had me an angel by my side Well I wish I had me an angel by my side I would send him home to you I would send him home to you Well I wished I had me a big old case of good luck Oh I wished I had me a big old case of good luck Well I wished I had me a big old case of good luck I’d drag it home for you, I would drag it home for you Well I wished I had a penny in my hand Lord I wished I had a penny in my hand Well I wished I had me a Penny Lord knows I ain’t never had that many now I wished I had me a penny right here in my hand

Shake 'Em On Down I heard your sister got the brains Your Mother she kept the style When Daddy paid off all your bills That how you learned how to smile If wit and charm they let you down You’ve something else to pick you up You said that life has shown you things You don’t deserve so cut and run Come on and shake for me, Baby, shake ‘em on down Come on and shake for me, Baby, shake ‘em on down Those other girls can say their stuff But they would kill to move like you It’s all been homegrown, moving fine Could be your hotter than the sun And while we’re at it, feel the heat You’d make a dead man run Now tell me was old Bogan right About the end of her thumb? Come on and shake for me, Baby, shake ‘em on down Come on and shake for me, Baby, shake ‘em on down

Last Train 02:39
Last Train Could be the only one waiting for you Could be the only one waiting for you Could be the light at the end of the tunnel Waiting like the last train Waiting like the last train I could be lost at sea amongst the waves I could be rolling over in my grave Or cast away on the face of the moon You know I‘m gonna come through Still I’m gonna come through Well if I were the last train coming ‘round Said if I were the last train coming ‘round I’d say climb on board now climb on board You know I‘m gonna come through Still I‘m gonna come through

Out On Saturday Night Soon be Saturday night, with the girl that shines She got the long blonde hair and a smile that knows Well, the mirror says yes and my feet say go Out on Saturday night, too soon come Sunday morn I been working all week - like a moth to the flame Well, so it goes, that’s how time slips away Least I got Saturday night - keep my Mondays at bay You make a boy feel proud girl And pride don’t come cheap Like a bird, a bird in the hand, girl Like it’s sunny for a week Would you walk along, would you stroll awhile? While the weather is kind, we’ll walk along in style My shoes are my only carriage, so if you ain’t tired We could go on home - and meet the Sunday morn Said, we could go on home And meet the Sunday morning
5.
You Got a Mind to Use Your Shoes Used to run around with no cares Well, none that was that strong Now it’s changing like a major to minor In the middle of a song Too many bad pennies going ‘round And you spent them all too soon If you finding too much trouble You got friends that you can use Got a big ol’ case of the low down blues Got a mind to use your shoes If you find if too damn heavy You got friends you can use It’s like they kicked us off the mountain Just as we began to climb Maybe we shoulda left sooner Maybe we lost track of time Got a big ol’ case of the low down blues Got a mind to use your shoes If you find if too heavy You got friends you can use Got a big ol’ case of the low down blues Got a mind to use your shoes If you ever find if too damn heavy You might have friends that you can use

Crawl No More Feel like I been crawling Said, I feel like I been crawling Far too long Don’t wanna crawl no more I feel like I been crawling Far too long Far, far too long I don’t wanna crawl no more Help me, come on and help me now I don’t wanna crawl no more Yonder come a man Breaking his back Breaking his back now Working so hard See him crawling I don’t wanna crawl no more

about

These six songs plumb the darker depths of rock'n'roll. A whistle-stop pilgrimage across musical state lines - from blues to country sung with a gospel singer’s intensity. Yet, beneath the groove and strut lies an unexpected, sobering introspection.

‘...This reviewer’s album of the month comes in the shape of inspirational and off-the-wall blues by Alex Haynes and pals… once in the machine it’s very difficult to turn off the hypnosis… there is plenty to distract and engage. Strikingly original, this is neologism blues for those wishing to extend the boundary...’ - Blues Matters review


‘…he would persuade Captain Beefheart to come back from heaven…’ - MassiveTalent


‘…Skewed Blues: Out of the smoke… comes Alex Haynes, he’s got the blues in his soul and no desire to make it easy for you. That cigarettes and whiskey atmosphere is… effectively invoked. Following a path with undeniable authority…’ - Bluesbunny
