"Bad Medicine" as written by and Elizabeth Jane Green....
The words of an old place and they’re always in time with his soul
Though his face be cracked and worn like age-old summer soil
You know he gave you his hand so you would lift him off that ground
And no one wants a hand that’s rough to touch from the shit it’s been carrying around

And every man wants more than he ever did before
He’s still got no way out
We’ve got no way out
No way out
We’ve got no way out of this

Well he walks through town like a bible prophet
Knows he owns it all but sometimes he doesn’t bother
No sometimes he doesn’t bother
Lord well he knows the dark hearts of men
And he’s been there before
Yeah he won’t go there again
No yeah he won’t go there again

For every man wants more than he ever did before
He’s still got no way out
We’ve got no way out
No way out
We’ve got no way out of this

So if my eyes turn black and my teeth fall out and my hairs caught up in rags
Don’t give me none of that medicine ‘cause I’ll spit it right back out

He tried so hard to fit in but he never really got a chance
Before he spoke they burnt him, cut him, roped him and finally put him in the ground
He said I’ve been through war and I’ve been through law and I’ve climbed that hill so cold
Yeah I’ve been through more that you’ll ever know still they never let me go

And every man wants more than he ever did before
He’s still got no way out
We’ve got no way out
No way out
We’ve got no way out of this

So if my eyes turn black and my teeth fall out and my hairs caught up in rags
Don’t give me none of that medicine ‘cause I’ll spit it right back out

Oh yeah I’ll spit it right
Yeah I’ll spit it right
I will spit it right
I will spit it right
I will spit it right back out
