"Belly Up Blues" as written by Louise Anna Hoffsten and Teresa Corrinne Cox....
He drank all my sweet love
Emptied my cup
Picked this poor heart clean
'Til went belly up
Talking 'bout nothing left to lose
It's an old story, but you've heard the news?
I've gone belly up blues

What he gave with one hand
The other took back
Rode on my freight train
Then drove it off the track
Talking 'bout nothing he didn't use
I can't walk one more mile in these hurting shoes
Talking belly up blues

I am fed up
With these low-down days
I pray to heaven
For some hell to raise

But ain't nothing hot around
Pick ins are slim
All my love went out
And none is coming in
Talking 'bout nothing from which to choose
No kind of offer I could even refuse
Talking belly up blues
