We cut these two songs with Mr. Abramson in the summer of 2013. Olie sat out on pedal steel to contribute some great lead guitar work and Simon & Chuck both made their first appearances on CBCB recordings.

Track Name: Lee's Death Wish
I'm going down the west coast
Going down to the sea
There's something on the horizon
Something big and mean
It's look to be L.A.
But that don't bother me
Don't remind me of nothing
But my wife and Robert E. Lee

My wife she's married
But she don't wear no rings
Eight days in the shower
And still she doesn't sing
Looking out of my window
Where did the fog line go?
I don't care is forty bucks
And another girly show

One week ago sunday
I was lying on the beach
Seagulls poking fun
I was dying to get beat
So I cracked open a can
And I cracked open my head
And I cracked myself awake
And I found myself in bed

In my bed next to me
I saw my wife
She was dreaming of the general
I could see it in her eyes
So I rode my pony to the grocery store
And I bought myself a gun
And i found Lee's grave to tell him
"You're gonna pay for what you done"
Track Name: Bad Times Do End
I'm going where the bad times do end
I'm going where the bad times do end
In the arms of a woman of the good company of a friend
I'm going where the bad times do end

You say that life's and illusion and that love is all we are
Tell that to all these people just crying for you at the bar
Life's full of suffering and that pain leaves lots of scars
But it doesn't matter to you 'cause you're gone and we're right back where we are

I'm going where the bad times do end
I'm going where the bad times do end
In the arms of a woman of the good company of a friend
I'm going where the bad times do end

I'm tired of living in a world that's gone away
Feel like there's nothing I can do and I know there's nothing I can say
Gonna find me a potion that can keep these notions down
Block out all the pictures and drown out all the sounds

I'm going where the bad times do end
I'm going where the bad times do end
In the arms of a woman of the good company of a friend
I'm going where the bad times do end

Gonna find me a highway one that's straight as it is long
Gonna find me a woman, one that's pretty as she is strong
Gonna keep on driving til we arrive in some foreign land
Get our feet wet in the water, throw our shit out in the sand
