    Purchasable with gift card



The Bone Daddy lifts his skull
from the piano lid to play
"Lemme get a whiskey and peach tea."

Pistol on the table
Revolver in the holster
"You ain't gunna shoot me
I paid my drink fee."

Bodie Currency
Brown paper's dead tree
The deeds you've done for me
or the ax to my family tree

The ragtime girl gets groovin' to the keys
played by Bony Phalanges

Whiskey down
The cards are free
The game is cheap

But Jimmy always carries on
ya see 'im?

Losin' gals he pulls his gun on me

Bodie Currency
Red Paper's blood money
The deeds you've done for me
Or the ax to my family tree

*Hey boy I see you sittin' there
drink your whiskey down
but Bodie Currency ain't got no value
in my town
But I need ya to get yourself up
and go grab your things
Don't you return until the tumbleweed sings...*

You're smoking buddy
The goods I've grown
I've paid my fee

Bodie don' remember nah
Bodie don' remember democracy
Oh the folk here,
they exchange

Bodie Currency
Oh, no paper no tree
The deeds you've done for me
or the ax to my family.
