I’ll Make Love To You - JJ Cale

I can't read and I can't write
And I don't know my left from right
I can't tell if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

I can't swim and I can't fly
I ain't no fish, I ain't no bird in the sky

I can't tell if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

I can't count from one to ten
And I don't know the shape I'm in
I can't tell if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

 

Don't Bring Me Down

I'm living on faith

You're living on lies

I'm trying to let go

But you're holding on tight

All of your negative energy

It don't take much

It starts to bleed

Before I know it

I'm feeling weak

Don't bring me down

I'm trudging that road

You're down in the dirt

You're looking for a victim

Yeah someone you can hurt

But not today

I won't take the bait

I got no time

For those who hate

I can't get close 

I need my space

Don't bring me down

You get online

And talk that trash

Tag me in a post

With some new bash

Don't share my name

I don't play that game

Politics and religion

It's all the same 

I just want to live

I want to live my life

Don't bring me down

 

Dreaming Of You

When I close my eyes

I start to fantasize it's true

Everywhere I do

I keep turning back to you

Women come and go

They try and steal the show

For a traveling man

That's nothing new

But I'm dreaming

Dreaming of you

That's all I do 

Sometimes I lie awake

I swear I can feel your touch

I smell you on my clothes

But it's never enough

Times ticking away

Until the very last day

When I turn this ship around

And head back home

I'm dreaming 

Dreaming of you

That's all I do

When we make love

It's with me for days

You get me through

The never ending maze

When I close my eyes

I start to fantasize it's true

Everywhere I go

I'm always coming back to you

But I'm dreaming

Dreaming of you

That's all I do

 

In My Blood

I've been running

All my life

Can't sit still

No matter how I try

Everywhere I go

It don't last that long

I turn around

And then I'm gone

No matter how deep

I get in the mud

I'll break free

It's in my blood

Met me a girl

In a lonely town

She had money

She liked to throw it around

Bought my dinner

Brought me wine

Shared her soul

But I didn't share mine

No matter how deep

I get in the mud

I'll break free

It's in my blood

I've walked away

So many times before

I tell em I'll be right back

But I never come back for more

The road I walk

It's not for the faint of heart

It's got no ending

It's got no start

Everywhere I go

They try and hold me down

I almost fee bad

I'm like a lost and found

No matter how deep

I get in the mud

I'll break free

It's in my blood

I might sink a little lower

Deep in the mud

But I'll break free

It's in my blood

 

Presence of the Lord - Eric Clapton

I have finally found a way to live
Just like I never could before.
I know that I don't have much to give,

But I can open any door.
Everybody knows the secret,

Everybody knows the score.
I have finally found a way to live
In the color of the Lord.

I have finally found a place to live

Just like I never could before.
And I know I don't have much to give,

But soon I'll open any door.

Everybody knows the secret,

Everybody knows the score.

I have finally found a place to live

In the presence of the Lord.
In the presence of the Lord.

I have finally found a way to live
Just like I never could before.
And I know I don't have much to give,

But I can open any door.
Everybody knows the secret,
I said everybody knows the score.
I have finally found a way to live
In the color of the Lord.
In the color of the Lord.

 

When It Rains

Took all my money

Ran me out of town

Told so many lies

Got me way low down

I tried to clear my name

But she's got me on the floor

No use standing up

When it rains it pours

Lost so much so fast

My head's spinning for days

I thought this woman she loved me

But honesty doesn't pay

If I was a gambling, I'd place a bet on the door

Just walk away

When it rains it pours

Sitting in this motel room

With a 5th of gin

Down to my last dollar

Got nowhere to begin

They say once you hit bottom

Only place to go is up

But they never met this woman

She broke my loving cup

I just shake my head

Sometimes you lose the war

Don't matter now

When it rains it pours

It's getting cold in here

When it rains it pours

 

You Don't Have Me

What's it gonna be

When I'm up and gone

What's it gonna be

When you're all alone

You go everything that you wanted

Everything that you need

But you don't have me

No you don't have me

Where you gonna go

When I throw you out

Where you gonna go

With your scream and shout

You got everything you wanted

Everything you need

But you don't have me

No you don't have me

You got everything a girl wants

But you don't have me

Well I clean your dishes

I wash your hair

Pick up your clothes

And sweep the stairs

I go to work everyday 

I bring home all of my pay

You just smile, like you're some kind of queen

You got everything a girl could want

But oh baby...you don't have me

Nope, you don't have me

I must be a fool talking to myself

To think you don't have me

 

Damned If I Do

(coming soon)

 

Running Man by Guy Hale 

 

You hear me coming, won’t see me go

Every four years, roll out the show

Visit the people, I’ve never seen
Go to places, that no-ones been

I tell you stories, of things I’ll do

Make a promise, from me to you

Say that l care, with a weary sigh

Just before, l say goodbye

I’m the running man, that’s what l am

And I’m running to, the same old plan

Tell you stories, be so sincere
Then I’m gone, just disappear

Great big smile, innocent of guile

Same old speech, mile after mile

Kiss your babies, stroke your dog

All assurances, lost in the fog

You keep on falling for the same old lies

Send me to govern, watch the demise

It’s the same old story, year after year

Politics’ of hope, shaped by fear

I’m the running man, that’s what l am

And I’m running to, the same old plan

Tell you stories, be so sincere
Then I’m gone, just disappear

 

Evil - Willie Dixon

If you're a long way from home

Can't sleep at night
Grab your telephone

Something just ain't right

That's evil

Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

Well, long way from home and

Can't sleep at all
You know another mule
Is kickin' in your stall
That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

You better catch him
'Cause somethin' wrong
In your home
Well, if ya call her on the telephone

And she answers awful slow
Grab the first train smokin'
If you have to hobo
That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother

You better watch your happy home

If you make it to your house
Knock on the front door
Run around to the back

You'll catch him just before he go

That's evil
Evil is goin' on
I am warnin' ya brother

You better watch your happy home

 

Resurrection

They said it was over
That this love could not survive With all the pain we discovered How could we ever
Last the test of time

I was searching for an answer
I was searching for the truth
I finally realized
All my searching ends with you

We need a resurrection

We need a second chance

So I pray for one more

Just one more slow dance

You were walking in the shadows

You were standing strong at home

Knowing something had to give

How could we ever just go on

You knew this love was meant to be

You knew this man, he was the one

And it would take all of your courage

Not to pack it up and run

We need a resurrection
We need a second chance

So you prayed for one more

Just one more slow dance

We never saw it coming
The last thing we thought we’d need

Was this angel from heaven
To sow the seed
