We can share the women, we can share the wine. We can share what we got of yours 'cause we done shared all of mine. Keep on rollin', just a mile to go; Keep on rollin' my old buddy, you're movin' much too slow.
I just jumped the watchman, right outside the fence. Took his rings, four bucks in change, ain't that Heaven sent? Hurts my ears to listen, Shannon, burns my eyes to see; Cut down a man in cold blood, Shannon, might as well been me.
We used to play for silver, now we play for life; And one's for sport and one's for blood at the point of a knife. And now the die is shaken, now the die must fall. There ain't a winner in the game, he don't go home with all. Not with all.
Leavin' Texas, fourth day of July, Sun so hot, the clouds so low, the eagles filled the sky. Catch the Detroit Lightnin' out of Sante Fe, The Great Northern out of Cheyenne, from sea to shining sea.
Gotta go to Tulsa, first train we can ride. Gotta settle one old score, one small point of pride. There ain't a place a man can hide, Shannon will keep him from the sun Ain't a bed can give us rest now, you keep us on the run.
Jack Straw from Wichita cut his buddy down, And dug for him a shallow grave and laid his body down. Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light, One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow.
We can share the women, we can share the wine.
There was a wealthy merchant, in London he did dwell He had a Beautiful daughter, the truth to you we'll tell Oh the truth to you we'll tell
She had sweethearts a plenty, and men of high degree But none but Jack the sailor, her true love ever be Oh her true love ever be
Jackie's gone a sailing, with trouble on his mind He's left his native country and his darling girl behind Oh his darling girl behind
She went down to a tailor shop and dressed in man's array She climbed on board a vessel to convey herself away Oh convey herself away
Before you get on board sir, your name we'd like to know She smiled on her countenance, they called me Jack-A-Roe Oh they called me Jack-A-Roe
I see your waist is slender, your fingers they are small Your cheeks too red and rosy to face the cannonball Oh to face the cannonball
I know my waist's to slender, my fingers they are small but it would not make me tremble to see ten thousand fall Oh to see ten thousand fall
The war soon being over she went and looked around among the dead and wounded her darling boy she found Oh her darling boy she found
She picked him up on in her arms and carried him to the town she sent for a physician to quickly heal his wounds Oh to quickly heal his wounds
This couple they got married so well they did agree This couple they got married so why not you and me? Oh why not you and me? Oh why not you and me?
Johnny B. Goode
Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, Way back in the woods among the evergreens There in an old cabin made of earth and wood There lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode. He never learned to read or write so well, But he could play a guitar like ringin' a bell.
Go go, go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go; Go Johnny go, go; Go Johnny B. Goode.
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack, Go sit up in the trees by the railroad track. The engineers seen him sittin' in the shade Strummin' to the rhythm that the drivers made. People passin' by would stop and say "My my, but that little country boy can play!"
His mamma told him "Someday you will be a man." You will be the leader of a big old band Many people comin' from miles around To hear you play your music when the sun goes down. Maybe someday your name will be in lights.
