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…

Track Name: Tough Love Woman
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

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
Track Name: The Cost of Love
The Cost of Love

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.
Track Name: Busted
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
Track Name: Move Along Baby
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
