Track Name: Out Lookin'/Winnin' Gold
He went out lookin'
for some winnin' gold
with his daddy's hat and his two guns
keepin' him warm in the cold
He was nothing but barely livin'
A sheep livin' a wolf's life
when the bastards caught him stealing he could find a small place to hide
He could find a small place to hide
And the last time he got caught
in an old town called El Salido
when he started through those bars there was someone out there to greet him
Someone waiting to meet him...
Track Name: Calamity Kate
She saw me falling through the window
squeezin' through those black bars
with two loaded pistols
and no money to show for the scars

You know my story you know my name
I've conquered pain in the desert rain I'm true
I'm Calamity Kate
I know my rights and I know my wrongs
with my coat you'll sleep all night long I'm true
I'm Calamity Kate

My parents died back home in the flood
so I took my siblings far, far away
I took them down a hot and dusty road
worried I would lose them along the way
My brothers died from starvation
My sisters died from the flu
I thought I'd never find salvation
but I found it when I found you

You know my story you know my name
I've conquered pain in the desert rain I'm true
I'm Calamity Kate
I know my rights and I know my wrongs
with my coat you'll sleep all night long I'm true
I'm Calamity Kate

All these years I've lived with no pity
Even for these things I've had to lose
It don't matter the time or the city
I always wiggle out of the noose
and you wonder how a girl like me stays pretty
well kid, I'v got some good news...
Track Name: Code of Three
First rule of the three, you should only kill when you gotta
cause every man don't deserve to die
you might like to think, this one's easy to follow
but you'll find its the hardest not to break

Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna talk about it
Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna see what they'll do to us when they find us
I don't wanna think what they'll do to us

Second rule of the three, you should always watch your back
cause you never know who's out there trying to find ya
Jesus always said, you should turn that other cheek
but I say don't, unless you can see the bastard behind ya

Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna talk about it
Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna see what they'll do to us when they find us
I don't wanna think what they'll do to us

Last rule of the three, you should never fall in love
cause love only keeps you afraid.
Afraid of all those things that you'll be missin'
when you're sittin' in your early grave

Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna talk about it
Its the code of three
yes its saving you and me
I don't wanna see what they'll do to us when they find us

I don't wanna think what they'll do to us when they find us
Track Name: Sheriff #1 (All I Ever Wanted)
With their hands behind their heads we told them not to move
they slid themselves out on the floor, they thought we had nothing to lose
there was a man who was watching with a badge under his coat
had a family who was waiting for him to make it back home

I had no desire to shoot anyone
I took the job thinking I wouldn't have to pull my gun

All I ever wanted...

I could hear them both shouting from down the street
When I got closer, they saw my shadow. The crowd started to scream

Two eyes hidden behind twin pistols
The bullet tore through my brain. I heard it whistle

All I ever wanted...
Track Name: Among Dogs (Jesse's Offer)
Well I watched you walkin', hanging your head like a dog
the people moved away like they could smell the bad in your blood
let me tell you, we share the same heart pumping the same dark blood
but mine is hidden beneath a suit and a freshly pressed shirt.

Don't you ever think that whats right could be wrong
any man who is righteous can right his own wrongs and be a man
walking among dogs

Long ago I found a woman who would share my soul
she couldn't keep up with the money I made to build us up a home
so I made a gang out of people like us
who'd kill and maim for a dream that they could trust
you could throw it all away, you still gotta walk that line
anything less would mean that you were livin' a lie
you could build a home, marry a woman, have three kids to till the farm
but it all adds up to nothing if you don't know what you really are

let me count your sins, you think these ever really end?
watch the procession of people you love walk like a line of ants under your thumb

If you know your place you can navigate straight through the fog
no Calamity Kate can chain you up by any code of law
I can guarantee your pay, I can make you much more than a dog
you'll be a righteous arrow wrought from the very hands of God.

Walk with me, watch me kill a man
quick in procedure, don't question demand only quell the passion where it stands

Ohh so lonely
Ohh so lonely
Ohh you remind me of the dark.

Ohh so lonely
Ohh so lonely
Ohh you think you know what you really are?
Track Name: Adelaide
And now my love has gone away
it seems like only yesterday
he held me up so tightly in his arms
promising the riches of a life lived far away
where none could ever do us any harm
but now it seems those faded dreams
are just as far as him from me
I gave my heart to him do I have his?
times have been so tough that I think I've had enough
and I'm ready to give up that wish.

But when I was just a little girl
I dreamed of diamond rings and pearls
making all the boys go wild and mad
marble floors all trimmed with gold
satin sheets for maids to fold
and anything that I could ever ask
but dreams come and go so easily
like summer blowing through the trees
tears falling from a baby's eyes
now all that I want to do
is find a life that's fit for two
with a man who's strong and wise

Show me all my fears
and now they all just seem to disappear
when I'm with you, I'm never blue
everyday is sunshine and the nights are warmer too
don't you know its cruel to keep me waiting, always hesitating to call on you?
I'm longing to be good to you
know I'll be forever true
oh please don't make me out to be a fool
but even if I am honey, you can still be my man.

Now you know the story of
a broken heart that falls in love
with a voice that whispers softly in it's ear
no more want for fancy things
a heart can't wear a diamond ring
but it longs for another to be near...
Track Name: Bought Love
Always felt alone
a roaming heart to call my home
but who needs to be happy?
Then I saw her face
and a heart replaced the cold
when I found you

Always walkin' on that wire
but we got on like a house on fire.
Always walking down those streets
I lay my jacket between the puddles and your feet.

For bought love. You know how it makes me feel
Bought love. Your heart I could not steal

For your love I became your liar
In these shadowed halls I became your island
With a love like this, it can't be buried down
it makes a sandbox out of the chapel in this town

For bought love. You know how it makes me feel
Bought love. Your heart I could not steal

I always wake up wondering how life would be
to see you laying here next to me
and in the streets of El Salido
all your heartaches, they finally let us go

For bought love. You know how it makes me feel
Bought love. Your heart I could not steal
Track Name: Our Graves (Calamity Sees A Difference)
I don't know what is so wrong
I just heard her singing a song
I'm tired
I'm tired
I just heard her singing a song

I cut my teeth to fill your purse
how many graves to kill your thirst?
I've tried
I've tried
I just heard her singing a song

(Do you know what it means?) You know I've always tried
(To an old woman like me?) You know I've always tried
to live my life through your eyes

We tried so hard to get away
from men who knew our names
we could've died
we should've died
you kiss the ghosts around our graves

(Do you know what it means?) You know I've always tried
(To an old woman like me?) You know I've always tried
to live my life through your eyes
lord knows I've failed
but this love, is worth going to hell
for her, I'll give up on our code of three
I'll give up on you and me...
Track Name: Old (Gram's Love Song)
If we were old friends
we'd have nothing to prove
if I changed my whole world
would I look like a fool?

This old love of her's
is holier than these old shoes
I wish I was old
without these oats to sew

I love her
and maybe that's the best part of me
Track Name: The Ballad Of Calamity Kate
I wish I was dyin' in my sleep
eyes closed, warm sheets
then I wouldn't be awake to hear myself scream
if I was dyin' in my sleep

I wish we never met at all
I wish you didn't remind me of my brother and Paul
Hell, I wish I was someone else, not some worthless thief
I wish we never met at all

Will St. Peter know my name
when he sees me at his white gates?
or is Satan's dogs waitin', watchin' by the flames?
Will St. Peter know my name?

Does Jesus even show anymore?
Does he care to see me repent my sins?
Or is he now the one holding the whip?
Does he like to see me dyin' in the dirt?
Or is he now want me wearing his thorny crown?
Cause lord knows I've died for my sins
because I am for you

I wish I was dyin' in my sleep
