Last Train to Jacksonville
Are you lonely for me baby, are you lonely for me baby
Are you lonely for me baby, last train to Jacksonville
I'll get on it baby, you know I will, come on and try
Go ahead and try to get on that train, I want you
Go and cry baby, go ahead and cry
Know I'm the one to hurt you, I'm lonely baby, lonely and blue
I'm lonely baby, I'm lonely for you, are you lonely for me baby?
This time I'm going to Jacksonville
Are you going, sweet baby, or are you staying?
Tell your friend it's the end of restlessly searching
Said I was born to hurt you, I'm sorry baby, sorry and blue
I'm lonely baby, I'm lonely for you, are you lonely for me baby?
Are you going, sweet baby, or are you staying?
Say you'll be there, got a feeling that when I get on the train girl
When the feeling, I got a feeling that without your love baby
I'm lonely babe, lonely and blue, I'm sorry baby, long before you
Are you lonely for me baby?

Lazy Lightnin'
Lazy lightnin' sleepy fire in your eyes it's like desire in disguise
I keep on tryin' but I, I can't get through
Lazy lightnin' I'd like to find the proper potion
That's gonna capture your emotion
You're right beside me but I, I can't get through
You're a loop of lazy lightnin', just a loop of lazy lightnin'
Must admit you're kinda frightnin' but you really get me high
So exciting, when I hear your velvet thunder,
You seem so near I start to wonder
Would you come closer if, if I asked you to?
So inviting, the way you're messing with my reason
It's an exception but it's pleasing
Tell me a lie and I will swear, I'll swear it's true.
You're a loop of lazy lightnin' (Lazy lightnin')
Just a loop of lazy lightnin' (Lazy lightnin')
Must admit you're kinda frightening
Just a loop of lazy lightnin'
Put the fire in my eyes (Lightnin') Put the fire every time (Lightnin')
Put the fire in my heart (Lightnin') Well come on lazy lightning.
Just a loop of lazy lightning
Misty lightning, well you always electrify me
Someday I know you'll satisfy me
And all that lightnin' will be my lightnin' too.
My lightnin' too. (My lightnin' too)
Just a loop of lazy lightnin' (My lightnin' too)
My lightnin' too. (My lightnin' too)
Just a loop of lazy lightnin' (My lightnin' too)
My lightnin' too. (My lightnin' too)
Oh come on lazy lightnin' (My lightnin' too)

Let It Rock
Well up in the evening down in Mobile, Alabama
Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer
Gotta make some money to buy some brand new shoes
Trying to find somebody to take away these blues
"She don't love me" hear them singing in the sun
Payday's coming and my work is all done
Later in the evening when the sun is sinking low
All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow
Sitting in a tepee built right on the tracks
Rolling them bones until the foreman comes back
Pick up you belongings boys and scatter about
We've got an off-schedule train comin two miles about
Everybody's trembling and running around
Picking up their money, tearing the tepee down
Foreman wants a penny (?) about to go insane
Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
Engineer blowing the whistle loud and long
Can't stop the train, gotta let it roll on

Let Me In 83968
A little boy knocked at the warden's door at Sing Sing
Said in tears, "Yes sir, I understand that 83968 lives here."
He's my daddy, sir, and I just got to be near him
And if you can't let him out then you just got to let me in
Let me in, let me in, 83968's my dad
I watched the burial of my mama
Now he's all in the world that I have
But I can break your little rocks with a hammer in my hand
I just got to be near daddy, Mr. Warden please let me in
When I checked through California happy trails out on the rock
From Folsom on to Jacksonville, no one had my heart
When I found the newspaper clipping in my mama's souvenirs
And now I'm here in Sing Sing 83968

Let Me Sing Your Blues Away
Gonna hop in the hack then turn on the key,
Pop in the clutch, let the wheels roll free,
Not a cloud in the sky, such a sunny day,
Push in the button, let the top ten play.
Come on honey, let me sing 'em away,
Come on honey, let me sing 'em away,
Oh, honey, let me sing your blues away.
Give me a little of that old time love,
Cause I ain't never had near enough.
Honey, walk that walk with style and grace,
This ain't no knock-down drag-out race.
It don't matter much, pick any gear,
Brind you a pound and drop the rear.
Baby, baby what can I say,
I'm here to drive those blues away.
I sent a letter to a man I know,
Said, "One for the money and two for the show."
I wait all summer for his reply
Said, "Three to get ready and four to fly."
Only two things in the world I love,
That's rock 'n' roll and my turtle dove.
When I was a young man I needed good luck,
But I'm a little bit older now and I know my stuff.
Come on honey, let me sing 'em away,
Come on honey, let me sing 'em away,
Oh, honey, let me sing your blues away.

Lindy
I know they're gonna run take me
When they get across the sea
Ever' chance, those women; Watch-it's amazing
It's all safe and now sugar baby
Oh Mama, don't you weep and moan, Uncle Sam got your man and gone.
Now then they're doin' the Lindy Bird across the sea.
Oh Mama, how can it be, You went way across the sea
Just to keep from doing that Lindy fight with me
Oh baby, well I done just told'ja now
Oh Mama, don't you weep and moan, Uncle Sam got your man and gone.
Now then they're doin' the Lindy Bird across the sea.
She said, "Let me play the blues on your piano
And then I'll do that Lindy thing with you."
Mary had a dream about a submarine.
I asked her for a glass of payolla;
She said, "Let me play the blues on your Victrola,
And then I'll do that Lindy fight with you."

Little Red Rooster
I'm a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days
Just a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days
Keep everything in the barnyard people, upset in every way
Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl
Watch out stray cat people the little red rooster is on the prowl
If you see the little red rooster, won't you please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster, won't you please drive him home
Been no peace in the barnyard people, since the little red rooster's been gone
[ Brent rap ]
Yeah and the little red rooster, well you ain't shit to me
Think you're a stud boy, well I doubt you'll ever be
While your away I'm gonna fuck with your hens, boy
I'm just bein' neighborly

Little Sadie
Went down last night to take a look around
Met little Sadie and I blew her down, went right home, went to bed
Forty-four colt smokes under my head
And I began to think what a deed I'd done
Grabbed my hat and away I run, made a good run, but a little too slow
They overtook me in Jericho
I'm standin' on the corner ringin' the bell
Along came the sheriff from Thomasville
Says "Young man, your name's Brown,
Remember the night you blew Sadie down?"
Oh, yes sir, my name is Lee,
I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
First degree and the second degree
Got any papers won't you read 'em to me.
They took me downtown all dressed in black
Put me on the train and sent me back
Sent me back to the county jail, I had nobody to go for my bail
The judge and the jury they took the stand
The judge hold the paper in his right hand
Forty-one days, forty-one nights,
Forty-one years to wear the ball and stripes.

Little Star ?
Lovers we got to be, lovers we are.
I just wanna be one of those little stars
All you gotta do is hang up there and shine.........
Hang up there and shine

Logger Song
As I pulled out a living within a small cafe
Party rolled waitress to me these words she said
I see you're a logger and a common bum
Cause no one but a logger stirs coffee with his thumb
My lover was a logger, but not like none today
If you put whiskey on it, he'd eat a bale of hay

Long Black Limousine
Down through the city their fancy cars are such a sight to see
At first look your rich friends that took you innocently
That now they finally called you home to me
Papers told about you lost your life
Of the party and the famous crash that night
Racing on the highway that turns nobody saint
Now you're driving in that long black limousine

Looks Like Rain
Awoke today, felt your side of the bed;
The covers were still warm where you been layin'.
You were gone, oh gone, my heart was filled with dread;
You might not be sleeping here again.
But it's alright cause I love you, and that's not going to change.
Run me around and make me hurt again and again.
But I'll still sing you love songs, written in the letters of your name.
The rain is gonna come, oh it surely looks like rain
Did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love?
You guess from the cries you were listening to a fight.
Well you know, oh know, haste is the last thing they're thinking of.
You know they're only tryin' to make it thru the night.
I only want to hold you, I don't want to tie you down
Or fit you in the lines I might've drawn.
It's just that I, oh I, have gotten used to havin' you around.
The landscape would be empty, if you were gone;
But it's alright cause I love you, and that's not going to change.
Run me around and make me hurt again and again.
But I'll still sing you love songs, written in the letter of your name.
The rain is gonna come, oh it surely looks like rain.

Loose Lucy
Loose Lucy is my delight, she come runnin' and we ball all night,
round and round and round and round and round and round and round,
don't take much to get me on the ground.
She's my yo-yo, I'm her string, listen to the birds on the hot wire sing,
yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh, singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!"
I got jumped coming home last night,
Shadow in the alley turned out all my lights,
round and round and round and round and round and round and round,
don't take much to get me on the ground.
Loose Lucy, she was sore, says I know you don't want my love no more,
yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh, singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!"
Be-bop baby how can this be? I know you been out a' cheating on me,
round and round and round and round and round and round and round,
don't take much to get the word around.
Cross my heart and hope to die, I was just hanging out with the other guys,
yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh, singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!"
Went back home with two black eyes, you know I'll love ya till the day I die,
round and round and round and round and round and round and round,
don't take much to get the word around.
I like your smile but I ain't your type,
don't shake the tree when its fruit ain't ripe,
yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh, singing yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh,
singing yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh,
singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!"

Loser
If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn,
I could arm a town the size of Abilene
Don't you push me baby,
Cause I'm all alone and you know I'm only in it for the gold
All that I am asking for is ten gold dollars
And I could pay you back with one good hand
You can look around about the wide world over
And you'll never find another honest man.
Last fair deal in the country,
Sweet Suzie, last fair deal in the town
Put your gold money where your love is baby,
Before you let my deal go down
Don't you push me baby, cause I'm all alone
Well I know a little something you won't ever know
Don't you touch hard liquor, just a cup of cold coffee
I'm gonna get up in the morning and go
Everybody prayin' and drinkin' that wine
I can tell the Queen of Diamonds by the way she shines
Come to daddy on the inside straight,
Well I got no chance of losin' this time
Last fair deal in the country,
Last fair deal in the town
Put your gold money where your love is baby,
Before you let my deal go down
Everybody prayin' and drinkin' that wine
I can tell the Queen of Diamonds by the way she shines
Come to daddy on the inside straight,
Well I got no chance of losin' this time.

Lost Sailor
Compass card is spinning, helm is swinging to and fro
Oh, where is the dog star, oh, where's the moon.
You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.
Somedays the gales are howling, sometimes the sea is still as glass.
Oh, raise the main sail, oh, lash the mast.
You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.
Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free.
There's a sea bird cryin' and there's a ghost wind blowing
And it's calling you, to that misty swirling sea.
Till the chains of your dreams are broken,
No place in this world you can be.
You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.
Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free.
You pay for being free, I'll tell ya freedom don't come easy,
Free don't always come for free,
Sometimes it's hard to know what to believe in.
Where to go, who to go, where to be, who to be.
That means you're driftin'.... driftin'
Yeah driftin' and dreamin', really goin' on a dream now.
Really goin' on a feelin', really goin' on a feelin'.
Driftin', driftin' and dreamin'.
Cause it's a place you've never been
Maybe a place you've never seen now
You can hear them callin' on the wind
Driftin' and dreamin', driftin' and dreamin'.
Really goin' on a dream now, really goin' on a dream now,
Really goin' on a dream now.

Louie, Louie
Louie, Louie, me gotta go. Louie, Louie, me gotta go.
A fine little girl, she wait for me. Me catch the ship across the sea.
I sailed the ship all alone. I never think I'll make it home.
Louie, Louie, me gotta go. Louie, Louie, me gotta go.
Three nights and days we sailed the sea. Me think of girl constantly.
On the ship, I dream she there. I smell the rose in her hair.
Louie, Louie, me gotta go. Louie, Louie, me gotta go.
Me see Jamaican moon above. It won't be long me see me love.
Me take her in my arms and then. I tell her I never leave again.
Louie, Louie, me gotta go. Louie, Louie, me gotta go.

Love in the Afternoon
Love, love in the afternoon
Outside the window an organ grinder's tune
Rhythm, wine; touch of Jamaica, twilight time with a Kingston lady
All the time in the world for me and that girl
Sweet, she sang sweetly; come back soon
Come back for more of that love in the afternoon
Breezes blow by me in the afternoon
She sings sweetly an organ grinder's tune
Finally recovered from last year's round of bye bye baby blues
All I crave today some love in the afternoon
Love, love in the afternoon
It's easy as she goes, like an organ grinder's tune
Gone with the moon any old trouble it can't leave too soon
Trouble's no part of what I want 'specially in the afternoon
Singin', sleepin' till two
Wakin' to make more love in the afternoon
