Track Name: Big Car - No Shoes
Big Car – No Shoes
©2012 Neil Porter

Big hat – no cattle
Big sky – but no rain
Nice horse – no saddle
Got a ticket – no plane
Nice wedding – wrong person
Cool Gibson – no blues
Best schools – no learning
Big car – no shoes

Bad war – losing battle
Big smile – you’re in pain
Big bucks – big hassle
Nice tune – but no fame
Nice wedding – wrong person
Cool Gibson – no blues
Best schools – no learning
Big car – no shoes

Big car – no shoes
Big car – no shoes

Good minders – bad manners
Fast rail – slow train
Low bar – flame fanners
Big head – no brain
Nice wedding – wrong person
Cool Gibson – no blues
Best schools – no learning
Big car – no shoes

Big car – no shoes
Big car – no shoes

Track Name: Snake Oil
Snake Oil
©2016 Neil Porter

Mean Mr Mustard
Got his foot in the door
I don’t understand
What you opened it for
Drop your guard
And he’ll walk right in
Oozing that snake oil
On everything

Chorus:
Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Mass hypnosis
Wild tirade
He’s got all the skills
Of the snake oil trade
Big on slogans
Small on hands
Gonna make America
Snake again

Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Money on the counter
He’ll give us all a case
Snake oil man
In a snake oil race
Drop your guard
And he’ll walk right in
Oozing that snake oil
On everything

Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Gonna make you richer
Gonna make you richer
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been
Snake oil, snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been
Track Name: Under The Southern Cross
Under The Southern Cross
©2011 Neil Porter

Dark night
Under the Southern Cross
Hold tight
Hold tight

Star bright
Look at the things we lost
Do right
Do right

Dark night
Under the Southern Cross
Hold tight
Hold tight
Hold tight

Big rain
Out of the southern sky
Big fright
Big fright

Hard pain
After the longest dry
Not right
Not right

Dark night
Under the Southern Cross
Hold tight
Hold tight
Hold tight

Hold tight, hold tight

SOLO

Don’t know
How much it’s going to cost
Hold tight
Hold tight

Can’t say
How many lives are lost
Hold tight
Hold tight

Dark night
Under the Southern Cross
Hold tight
Hold tight
Hold tight
