This song was recorded LIVE among friends somewhere in Texas...a political funk ballad with a real message and a raw groove that need to get out...Let The TruthWagon Roll! (Please note: the studio version of this song will come out in March, but we thought this live one was SO raw and good and lends itself really well to the lyrics, so we're releasing both...if you know anyone in politics, send it to them...with a copy of the lyrics, and tell 'em to take notes...)

Jay Johnson/Music and lyrics. From the album TruthWagon/c.2008 BMI

The TruthWagon

When your Feet are in the Fire
and your Check is in the Mail
When your Bird is on the Wire
and your Ass is in the Jail
When the River Calls your Name
and you Answer with a Grin
And you Wrestle with the Blame
When the Lumber Hits the Skin ~
Then it’s Time to Pay the Toll…
Let The TruthWagon Roll…

When you Laid Off all your Wishes
cause they Didn’t pull their Weight
And you Give Up on your Fishes
cause they Never took the Bait
When the Fire in your Fingers
tastes like Water on your Tongue
And the Last Rung of the Ladder
is the Farthest that you’ve Come ~
Then it’s Time to Pay the Toll…
Let The TruthWagon Roll…

When the Anger in your Breath
is the Wind behind your Sails
And the Promise of your Death
is the Steel upon the Rails
When the Time begins to Fly
as the Bullet leaves the Gun
And the Apple of your Eye
is your Moment in the Sun ~
Then it’s Time to Pay the Toll…
Let The TruthWagon Roll…

When the Depth of your Addiction
leaves you Shackled in a Cage
And the Strength of your Conviction
is the Last Thing that you Crave
When the Days that make you Cry
are the Only Days you Find
And the Teardrop in your Eye
soaks the Desert of your Mind
Then it’s Time to Pay the Toll…
Let The TruthWagon Roll…

And it’s Time to Pay the Toll…
Let The TruthWagon Roll…

Farewell to Arms
Acoustic live version of the very rockin' studio cut. Great lyrics backed by a very funky groove and incendiary fret work.
