Dust in a Baggie


New Tag

Help

Q: What are tags?
A: Tags are a way to add consistent notes to songs.

Q: When should I use tags?
A: Tags should be used for "notes" that can apply to multiple songs or performances. A good tag would be "clawhammer", to apply to all songs that Billy plays on his banjo. A bad tag would be "Streaker ran across stage" - since this has only happened once (thank goodness).

Q: Where should I add a tag?
A: A tag that should apply to everytime a song is played, like "solo, acappella" for "And am I Born to Die" should be added on the songs page. This will automatically add the tag every time that song is added to a setlist.

A tag that only applies to certain performances of a song, like "pay Jarrod Walker's fine" lyric change that happens in some versions of "Little Maggie" should be added to that particular version of the song on each setlist.

Q: How do I add a tag?
A: Click the "Manage tags" button either from the songs page or the song editing option on the edit setlist page. Click on a tag from the "Available" tags to add it to the song. Click on a tag from under the song title to remove it from the song. Click the "New Tag" button if the tag you want to add is not under the Available tags list.

First Time Played:

[Verse 1]
I ain't slept in seven days, haven't ate in three
Methamphetamine has got a damn good hold of me
My tweaker friends have got me to the point of no return
I just took the lighter to the bulb and watched it burn

[Chorus]
This life of sin has got me in
Well it's got me back in prison once again
I used my only phone call to contact my daddy
I got twenty long years for some dust in a baggie

[Verse 2]
Well if I would have listened to what Mom and Papa said
I wouldn't be locked up in prison, troubled in the head
I took that little pop and sucked until my mind was spun
I got twenty years to sit and think of what I've done

[Chorus]
This life of sin has got me in
Well it's got me back in prison once again
I used my only phone call to contact my daddy
I got twenty long years for some dust in a baggie

[Verse 3]
Sometimes I sit and wonder where my little life went wrong
These old jailhouse blues have got me singing this old song
My life is a disaster, Lord and I feel so ashamed
In here where they call by a number, not a name

[Chorus]
This life of sin has got me in
Well it's got me back in prison once again
I used my only phone call to contact my daddy
I got twenty long years for some dust in a baggie
I used my only phone call to contact my daddy
I got twenty long years for some dust in a baggie
