about

Baby Money’s debut album, In Memory of John Doe is finally here! And released in May 2014, with supporting shows scheduled in Chicago, Cincinnati, and throughout the Rust Belt. Produced by Colin Weaver of NoiseFloor Audio, the record consists of 11 original songs inspired by vintage soul and gospel, blended with a whiskey-drunk country flair.

The album is a combination of femininity and grit, layered with tight harmonies, reverb-soaked electric guitar, Motown bass guitar, punchy drums and bittersweet keys.

Track Name: Jesse James
never had a damn thing straight
i used to dream of dying young
now i don't know my fate
the world keeps turning on and on
you look so good so (sweet)
i'm hungry i don't need your love
you look good enough to (eat)
you took away my faithful

(chorus)
heartbeat my heart
don't beat for anyone
oh my heartbeat my heart
beatsssssssss

jesus died to save my country soul
the western swing and rock roll
jesse james the book of christ
my mother's father held the knife
in paper chains and paper (soles)
i found my will to fast and slow
my heart beats red with stripes of (white)
my heart beats sharper than a

(chorus)

phantom spirit shadow sprite
vision ghostly money night
liberty home in the lost and found
water soil bought and bound
*one dying man
stranded in a crowd
pieces of earth pieces of ground
lost little light
meet your neighbors
pieces of peace

(chorus (x2))
Track Name: In Memory Of John Doe
have a nice day the water's fine
gotta new fella make him mine all mine
have a nice day the water's warm
*have a nice day

have a nice day the ice is cold
people getting restless as they're getting old
sinner's getting hungry ice is getting thin
*have a nice day again

chorus:
*i live in a city that doesn't sleep
i live in a city that works all night
i live in a city that feels no heat
but every cold heart on every corner says
have a nice day

*have a nice day if you can spare the time
spare another dollar can you spare a dime
i just need a transfer can you help me out
have a nice day look out

have a nice day oh god is good
never seems to do the things you think he should
people getting restless baby’s getting mean
*have a nice day
*chorus
Track Name: Whenever You Want Me
whenever you want me
you may not find me
i’m rolling on
if ever you’re hungry for this one’s comp’ny
i will be gone
when you find yourself in need
please do not say you're missing me
i walk alone (x2)

been lovin’ you baby
all broken hearted
been bought and sold
ain’t getting much younger
you know i hunger
i’m never full
i can’t quit you where you stand
i cannot quite your heavy hand
i’m getting old (x2)

been beggin’ and pleadin’
‘til no one’s listenin’
you’re such a tease
i think you can hear me
from high up above me
i’m on my knees
deaf departed dyin’
you know i’m tired of cryin’ at you
please (x2)

ooh
oh up ev’ry morning
i’m awake at night (ooh ooh)
oh i’m just trying to tell you to try to just get by
just get by…

oh darkness and daytime
the whole world’s watching
the world is glass
you’re quietly telling
the things you’re selling
but nothing lasts
oh i was doing fine
‘til you put money on my mind
the time has passed
the time is past
Track Name: Paper Lover
paper lover' be careful where you walk
paper sweetheart be careful what you talk
ink ink ink's all i got
but it's not what i want
i want nothing at all
paper lover on paper baby we got it all

ever after i read it on your face
time goes faster as we forget to age
ink ink ink's all i got
but it's not what i want
i want nothing these days
paper lover we've got a love written on the page

part-time sweetheart you're a full-time habit now
i try to break it but not even sure how
ink ink ink's all i got
but it's not what i want
i want nothin’ out loud
paper lover you're a lover i know nothin' about (x3)
Track Name: Hot Blooded Woman
i’m a hot blooded woman but my blood’s run dry
the man my heart desires only makes me cry
i wish that i could tell him all the wrong he has done
but he makes my heart beat like a drum
i’m a hot blooded woman but i love me a cold man

he never says he loves me but he said it once
never takes me nowhere he just takes what he wants
he looks right past me most time but sometime he catches my eye
and i love him so much that i could die
i’m a hot blooded woman but i love me a cold man

he made me wait for hours
he made me wait for days
made me get right down upon my knees and beg
he said i was his true love i know i’m just his slave
but i’ll always love him just the same
i’m a hot blooded woman but i love me a cold man

if i left tomorrow on a midnight train
bound for colorado on the open plain
he wouldn’t say he’s sorry or remember my name
but i bet he’d miss me just the same
i’m a hot blooded woman but i love me a cold man

when i’m dead and buried and my hair grows long
i wonder if he’ll notice that his toy is gone
this toy ain’t that expensive but this toy sings songs
who knows if he’d think of me too long
i’m a hot blooded woman but i love me a cold man

oh me oh my
*i’m so happy i could die

before i go i'll say my peace
before i go i'll sing at least
electric lights both red and gold
electric winding western road
before i go i'll say

i never knew your name i never asked for peace
oh honey won't you please i'm a-running

don't want to have to ask you
i don't want to care
but baby when i'm asking baby

please somebody catch me
somebody rescue me whole
doctor why don’t you heal my heart

sometimes i swear i’m immune to light
sometimes i can’t get no relief

inside i’m wandering i’m a-waiting
inside i’m suffering for sure
for nothing can cure this disease
doctor deliver me
a soul a soul deliver me a soul (x2)

love bitter love
it will bury me in the ground

when all is safe and tight
