Maw Maw 04:46
Hey Maw Maw why it be this way Hey now child i just cant say Its been a long time comin and a long time gone Think i missed the ride that i shoulda been on Hey Maw Maw whys there so much rain Hey now child it's always been that way It's been a long time comin' and a long time gone But i just can't say who I know was wrong I've been the devil longer than you Just you remember who you talkin' to Just you remember who you laughin' at I got a red right hand longer dan your back Hey Maw Maw never wine in the bottle I'm an empty glass and I got no stopper It's been a long time comin and a long time gone Someone cursed the ground that I walk on Hey Maw Maw only thing that lasts Punches coming really hard and fast It's been a long time comin and a long time gone Wait for the morning it'll come along
Chorus I never kissed her at all, at all I travelled to see her, she was straight on down the line I hung on her every word I loved her smile But I wanted her brother mile for mile I loved everything about him Everything he’d say Yeah, I wanted to kiss her brother Ain't life funny that way I used to lie awake at night feeling like a fool Feel like a million dollars then feel like a fool It was all right there in front of me in black and white and blue
Dear John 04:15
I don't need to rehearse no blues Ain't no need, I got you I got you and a weight on my back Hitting harder than John Henry's hammer on a rail road track I don't need to rehearse no blues ​ I need another high noon Aint no need, I got you I’m shot down and now I lay Moulderin' like John Browns body in its grave I don't need another high noon ​ Can't you feel it  baby Can't you feel What heart did you steal baby Can't you feel ​ Ain't no fun, nothing's right Nothing but the blues in plain sight They were wrong when they said love has no pride Love wails like John Riley’s woman in the morning light Ain't no fun nothings right
James Dean 05:40
James Dean   ​ Set my mind to wandering Set my mind to dream Started me back ‘membering how you’d roll and lean How you be all crazy like Brando on Desire It's all kinda hazy (but) I’m sure I felt alive Stumblin' down the avenue Staggerin' like James Dean Ears only for the blues Only ya eyes sayin' what ya mean Sometimes I’d go crazy, can’t be no surprise It's all kinda hazy but the wheels fell off alright Chorus Oh baby let me roll, baby let me sway When the wind howls I will listen for your name Oh baby let me roll, baby let me sway When the tide turns please remember me I knew these two people just like Harry Dean
MEET ME IN THE HALLWAY K Simpson & A Ferrier ​ Meet me in the hallway On the second Floor Halfway down, room 23 or 4 I could use your company But not to talk at all There's nothing more to say I've heard it all before. ​ Meet me in the hallway When the lights are low I'll be in the bar-room Having one more for the road Bu that's not time for company It's my time that I'm owed Don't ask no questions You don't wanna know ​ Don't wait till the morning Don't wait till the dawn Don't wait in the hallway Come morning I'll be gone Don't look in the doorway Don't look by the stair Don't look down the highway Sweet darlin' I won't be there ​ Meet me in the hallway  When the drunks have moved along I'll be in the stairway  Where the light flickers off and on Why not stay a little while Or stay until the dawn But don't wait too long Come morning I'll be gone.
Good Love Bad  K Simpson  ​ What's making a good love bad Don't ask me what's making my good love bad ​ Don't ask me why my babys cryin ​CHORUS: WHAT TURNS SOMETHING FROM HAPPY TO SAD WHAT MAKES A LOVER TURN THEIR BACK IS IT FAITH OR MYSTERY THAT MAKES SOUR SOMETHING ONCE SO SWEET Don't ask me 'cause I know your lyin'
Sugar Baby 05:45
Big Old Steam Train Chorus Sometimes I think maybe I will Sometimes I think I won't Heading for a ride, won't be the same My heart's like a big old steam train Verses There’s a place that's set in the dining car And the place that's called desire And a knife and and fork they shimmer there And the knife, never tire I can’t afford a sleeper car So I ride up in the back I pick up all the troubles Throw them into a gunny sack ​ I can't honestly tell ya If i laugh or if I cry I just cling on for dear life Waiting for the end of the line There's dust and soot And sparks flyin' loose And my mind is riding the caboose There's crunching gears Of the gambling cost And black holes that I lost
OPELOUSAS BABY Opelousas baby I’ll be back sometime I got a sack of troubles In ‘lousas I’ll be fine In Opelousas I’ll be fine Opelousas baby I cant keep from sighin’ all that's left behind me All them blues ain't mine All them blues ain't mine Opelousas baby It was a place and time I can’t get back to you It’s only in my mind Only in my mind Opelousas baby Light a candle low No-one but you will hear me Moanin' way down low Moanin' way down low Opelousas baby Dance for me like you used to do Hold me long and slow Oh the ground's so cold Oh the ground's so cold Opelousas baby Down the open road I still smell you beside me Like you never gone Like you never gone
