Tough Love Woman Ana Cristina Cash, Shawn Camp. True Gift Music Publishing, LLC (ASCAP), Scamporee Music, (BMI)-International Dog Music, (BMI). I'm not the kinda girl who's gonna waste my time Stepping out trying to make you mine. If you want me baby show me now I need a full grown man who wont back down 'cause I'm a tough love woman. I could chase you around town in my high heel shoes Like a puppy dog crying the blues Why pour on the tears, what's the use? You're all talk and no do. I'm just about done with waiting around While you hang out in every bar town Drinking with the boys that rot gut booze You think you're winning, but your about to lose This tough love woman. Don't keep thinking you can string me along Or it wont be long before I'm gone You think you're right, you're so wrong I'm gonna break your heart, if this keeps on I'm not the kinda girl who'd waste my time Kissing up to you trying to make you mine Your game's about end in a world of pain I'm gonna wreck your life like a hurricane 'cause I'm a tough love woman I'm a tough love woman I'm a tough love woman

Southern Roots Ana Cristina Cash, John Carter Cash. Southern Roots. Ana Cristina Cash, John Carter Cash. True Gift Music Publishing, LLC (ASCAP), Auriga Ra Music (ASCAP). Way down south in no man's land was a good wife dealt a dirty hand Her man's head just wasn't right He got sick drunk most every night He married her for her daddy's money And to spread the seed of his family tree She married for love and the sake of the heart But all the good had fallen apart There's a tree grows tall by the waterside 'cause it's standing on southern roots and you don't mess around with the girls in the south 'cause the mommas teach the girls to shoot Well he woke up sick with a pain in his head She brought him coffee and breakfast in bed She rubbed his feet and gave a smile And said "Can we take a walk in a while?" He came back home from a pistol fight Stoned and drunk in the middle of the night He hit her hard with the butt of his gun That's the moment she came undone She took a shovel down to the creek And dug a hole three wide six deep Back at the house her eyes did shine She said, "Sweetie, fresh air will clear your mind" There's a tree grows tall by the waterside 'cause it's standing on southern roots and you don't mess around with the girls in the south 'cause the mommas teach the girls to shoot She looked pretty with the wind in her hair With the smell of tupelo in the air She kissed his lips and the deed was done She shot him twice with her momma's gun There's a tree grows tall by the waterside 'cause it's standing on southern roots and you don't mess around with the girls in the south 'cause the mommas teach the girls to shoot There's a tree grows tall by the waterside 'cause it's standing on southern roots and you don't mess around with the girls in the south 'cause the mommas teach the girls to shoot He lays beneath the Spanish moss Where all her pain was finally lost she planted a live oak right on his grave and the tree grows taller every day

The Cost of Love Ana Cristina Cash, Bill Miller. True Gift Music Publishing, LLC (ASCAP); Big Yellow Horse Publishing, Chocolate Soda Music (both admin by Moon and Musky Music, BMI). Wont you lay down… would you lay down your life for me? Would you stay around… would you stay all night for me? Or you'll pay the price, So you'd better know the cost of love Just hold me, I need to know that you're the one Will you stand by me? If this life comes undone… Your gonna pay the price so you'd better know the cost of love If you ain't got no interest Honey, just keep your change 'cause my love, my love is debt free And you ain't worth the pain Am I the only one, I want to know if your heart is true Are you the devil in disguise? 'cause I'm calling out to you Or you'll pay the price so you'd better know the cost of love Yeah you'll pay the price so you'd better know the cost of love You're gonna pay the price so you'd better know the cost of love.

Busted 03:10
Busted Ana Cristina Cash, Jodi Marr. True Gift Music Publishing, LLC (ASCAP), Little Ruth Music (ASCAP). Velvet suit, and piano hands, He's got his hair slicked back like Cary Grant And he's smooth on a baby grand Crimson smoke like grenadine My partner in crime, he touches me like he Tickles them ivories Playing for the tip jar every night He hasn't made too far but he might, I sing it, swing it while he plays We'll get outta here someday Cause were busted, busted But we feel diamond dusted Even if we've got nothing Were rich in love and that's good enough for me Woven sequins siren red I'm draped on the piano like a feather bed And he says baby, you were born for this I got my hairspray, satin applique But he sees me like he's got x-ray In his eyes, he keeps me electrified Playing for the tip jar every night We haven't made too far but we might, I sing it, swing it while he plays And we know what it takes Were busted, busted But we feel diamond dusted Even if we've got nothing Were rich in love and that's good enough for me Maybe its crazy, living on dustbowl dreams Of fame of fortune, and silver screens Cause were busted, busted But we feel diamond dusted Even if we've got nothing Were rich in love and that's good enough for me Cause were busted, busted But we feel diamond dusted Even if we've got nothing Were rich in love and that's good enough for me

Move Along Baby Ana Cristina Cash, John Carter Cash. True Gift Music Publishing, LLC (ASCAP), Auriga Ra Music (ASCAP). Well you're the man Who talks the talks But you big headed and you lost my heart So I said move along baby, move along baby Oh, since you ain't got love then you'd better move along I saw you flirtin' Betty And Peggy Sue, Now your hangin' your head like you got them blues Cause I caught you red handed, caught you red handed Oh I caught you red handed, you're a two timing son of a gun Oh you, travelin' salesmen Jack of all trades No I aint gonna buy what your sellin' to me You gotta move along baby, move along baby 'cause If you're damaged goods then you'd better move along No I don't want no hand me downs I'm a woman of means, don't mess with me You spin your words like threads of gold, Then you try them on some poor old soul… Well you're the man Who talks the talk But your head got big and you broke my heart So I said move along baby, move along baby oh, since you ain't got love then you'd better move along oh since you got no love then you'd better move along

about

Liner Notes

Ever since I was a child, music has been my most trustworthy companion. I have always taken it everywhere with me. It fills me up completely, and I've never felt alone. I remember feeling the music deep in my gut and in my bones. I still do. When I began writing, I merged melodies and music to paint a picture of the inner workings of my soul. No matter the human framework of a tough, guarded exterior, the mind and emotions are dazzlingly complex.

The Tough Love E.P. is my own personal sonic spectrum of these inner complexities. This music is deeply influenced by long nights of singing my heart out in dusty bar rooms, by hours of turning up old scratched blues and rockabilly vinyl records. These are the sounds and stories which came to me looking out the windows of my home in Tennessee. This is me digging into the American Roots…

I am so proud to have recorded The Tough Love E.P. at the historical Cash Cabin Studio in Tennessee, where so much amazing music has been recorded over the past decades. This music is true to my heart, an offering from my very soul. And there is more to come. This E.P. is part of my soon to be released album, "Tough Love Woman". Join me on this journey…
