"Honest Man" as written by and Jim James....
Try to walk this earth an honest man,
But evil waves at me it's ugly hand.
The radar watches me from above, shoutin' down:
"I hope you make it on this earth."
Sometimes this world will leave you, Lord,
Kickin' and a screamin', wonderin' if
You'll see the next day through.
But as for me I do believe
That good luck comes from tryin',
So until I get mine
I'll work me the whole day through.

    General Commentthis song talks of the "evil" temptations that exists in our everyday lives, while a greater power above hopes we make the right decisions. the singer claims that, despite all of the "evil" he faces, he will try to be an honest man

    General CommentJust a classic sounding simple blues tune that makes you feel good on the drive home from work.
