Pearl River

 

Pearl river, pearl river

If you could talk 

What would you say

 

Pearl River, pearl river

If you could talk 

What would you say 

 

Would you tell how many strange fruit

Your dark waters wash away

 

Pearl river, pearl river

In your water

Dark secrets linger still 

 

Pearl river, pearl river

In you, what dark secrets

Linger still

 

I’m gonna render you for refuge

I’m gonna have your witness killed 

 

Water moccasins glide

Hungry alligators hide

Deep inside your waters

 

Many shrimp and crab wait 

Of the dreadful fate 

Of the ones thrown to you 

After the slaughter 

 

Pearl river, pearl river

Will your dark secrets

Ever be revealed

 

Pearl river, pearl river

Will your dark secrets

Ever be revealed

I wanna know now 

 

Stay locked in the minds of man

Forever to be concealed

Yeah concealed 

 

Big Mouth

 

It's been rough here before
But this time I'm moving out
It's been rough here before
But this time I'm moving out
Well I've had enough of you
And more than enough of your big mouth

Now I've got a headache
From listening to you whine
I've got a headache
From listening to you whine
Well if you'd just shut your big mouth
I believe that I'd be fine

So whats it gonna take
For you to let me out that door
So whats it gonna take baby
For you to let me out that door
Well I can't hear a word you say darling
Cause your big mouth is in the way

It's been rough here before
But this time I'm moving out
It's been rough here before
But this time I'm moving out
Well I've had enough of you
And more than enough of your big mouth yeah
Your big mouth, big mouth

 

Change My Ways

 

Say you look at me

Like I put the hurt on you

You just shake your head 

You can’t believe all these lies are true

All the ghosts of the past 

They are still haunting you

 

Now youre asking me why

Why I wanna break your heart 

Why are you asking me why 

Why would I break your heart 

And I don’t know why you’re asking me

Cause you knew the answer from the start

You see I gotta change 

 

Change my ways

That’s what you want from me

Change my ways 

That’s what you want from me

How can I change 

Something that I just don’t see

How can I change my ways

 

Now give me one more chance 

I got to prove my love 

Girl I wanna be your man

I’m gonna show you what I’m made of 

I’m gonna shed this skin

I’m gonna rise above 

You see, I’m gonna change 

 

Change my ways 

That’s what you want from me

Change my ways 

That’s what you want from me

How can I change 

Something that I just don’t see

How can I change my ways

 

Eyesight to the Blind

 

You talkin' about your woman,
I wish you could see mine
You talkin' about your woman,
I wish you could see mine
Every time she starts to lovin'
She bring eye sight to the bloom

You know her daddy got some money
I can tell by the way she walk
You know her daddy got some money
I can tell by the way she walk
Every time she start to shakin'
Deaf and dumb begin to talk

Well early one morning she was lyin' on the bed 
Mel next door was dyin' and raised up his head 
And said, "Ain't she pretty? 
Uh don't you know she fine?"
One look at that woman 
Bring eyesight to the blind

I declare she pretty 
And the whole state know she fine
I declare she pretty 
And the whole state know she fine
Every time she start lovin'
She bring eye sight to the blind

One Step At A Time

 

 

One step at a time
I wanted too much
And never worked hard enough
I was blaming God
For not being there


I thought I was the only one
And never got anything done
I was hiding in anger and fear


On that high and lonesome road
One step at a time
I trust this feeling of mine
To carry me home where I belong
I will lay my worries down
Down on that solid ground
Maybe one day I'll know
How to quiet down this crazy soul
One step at a time


I was living too hard
Breaking every one's heart
But loosing my friends
Again and again
Looking back
I wish I had known
I didn't have to walk alone
But I got lucky
Got a chance to make a mends
On that High and lonesome road

One step at a time.... 2X

 
 

39 Days

 

Been 39 days

Since you walked out on me

Been 39 days 

Since you said goodbye

 

It’s been 39 days 

Since I lost the girl I love 

You know all I do baby 

All I do is cry 

 

Been 39 days

Since you said you had enough 

Been 39 days baby

Since you told me no more lies 

 

It’s been 39 days 

Since I lost the girl I love 

You know all I do baby 

All I do is cry 

 

It’s been 39 days

And I’m still under your spell

Been 39 days baby 

Since you said I could go to hell

 

It’s been 39 days 

Since I lost the girl I love 

You know all I do baby 

All I do baby 

 

It’s been 39 days 

Since I lost the woman I love 

You know all I do baby 

All I do is cry 

 

Shoes Blues

 

Woke up this morning 

Lord I couldn’t find my shoes

Woke up this morning 

I couldn’t find my shoes

I could tell right away

I was gonna have a day full of blues

 

When to see my girl

Oh, she started talking back to me

Went to see my baby

Oh he started talking back to me

A day full of blues

Oh that’s what this is gonna be 

 

Well I went to see my father

He said, son you have to pay your dues

Well I went to see my daddy

He said baby you got to pay your dues

He said everybody has a day full of blues

 

Well I woke up this morning baby 

I couldn’t find my shoes

Well I woke up this morning baby 

I couldn’t find my shoes

I could tell right away

I was gonna have a day full of blues

I got the blues

 

The Dead Of Night

It was late at night

When I saw her eyes

Out on the beach

Under the Moonlight 

And when she spoke to me

I could not understand 

All of the words 

But I could feel her pain

 

She took me by the hand

And brought me to her place 

Where people danced 

In tight embrace 

So we held each other close 

And never said a word 

But I believe I could

I could see right through her

 

Everyone around me smiled in fright

Dancing on the beach 

With the dead of night

When she kissed my lips

I could taste her soul

She gave me a wink

Through her fishbowl

 

I got dizzy man

Weak at the knees 

All the dancers waved

In a sleepy breeze

When I woke up 

In the morning fog 

The tide was low

My pillow was lost 

 

Scratched in the crystal beach

The words read in the light 

Come dance again 

With the dead of night

Everyone around me

Smiled in fright 

Dancing on the beach 

With the dead of night 

Dancing on the beach baby

With the dead of night 

 

Sugar Sweet 

 

I'm gonna tell you about my baby
I speak of her with pride
She go all the way to make me satisfied
Oh she's my baby, she's my baby, don't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet
She manicure my nails, scratch dandruff from my head
She's my baby, she's my baby, don't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet
When I say what I want, that's the way it's gonna be
She fall over backwards to go right on pleasin' me
Oh she's my baby, she's my baby, can't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet

 

Natural Born Lover

 

Girl I got a fever

You know it’s hotter than the fourth of July

I said girl I got a fever

Make you wanna scream and cry 

Lord you don’t me but you wanna hold me

Until the day you die 

 

I come swinging through your mouth baby 

I come crashing right through your front door 

I come swinging through your mouth baby

Lord I come crashing right through your front door

Bringing all the love with me

 

I’m a natural born lover 

Baby just you wait and see 

I’m a natural born lover 

Girl I got the heat in me 

I’m a natural born lover baby 

You know I stand just like a bee

 

I got honey for my baby 

You know I gotta keep my girl satisfied 

I got honey for my darling 

I got to keep my girl satisfied 

With that sweet tooth baby

We’re going for one hell of a ride

 

I’m a natural born lover 

Baby just you wait and see 

I’m a natural born lover 

Girl I got the heat in me 

I’m a natural born lover baby 

You know I stand just like a bee

 

Yeah I got the heat in me darling 

I’m a natural born lover 

You know I stand just like a bee 

 

All Last Night

 

All last night 

I laid in my bedroom alone 

All last night 

I laid in my bedroom 

My landlady, she tried to call me

I was too evil to answer the phone

 

Sometimes I wonder

Where can my baby be 

Sometimes sometimes 

I wonder, where can my baby be 

I know one thing for sure 

She sure ain’t here with me

 

C’mon Baby 

 

C’mon on baby 

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

You know you hurt me baby

You hurt me deep inside

I always got a sweet spot for your love

 

Now you’re coming back

And you’re asking me to forgive

All the times 

That you ran away

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

I never expected to see your face again

Now you’re here and looking fine

I wanna fall back baby

Back into that love

But I’m so scared

So scared inside

 

Come on baby 

One more time

With your love 

for me

 

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

No you got my eyes

But I’m holding on to my heart

I don’t know it 

But I can let go

 

But the way your lips are moving girl

It’s turning me on fire 

I don’t wanna 

Don’t wanna lose it all 

 

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me

 

C’mon baby

One more time 

With your love 

For me
