Keb' Mo' - Keb' Mo'

1994

am I wrong

fallin’ in love with you

Tell me am I wrong

Fallin’ in love with you

While your other man was out there

Cheatin’ and lyin’, steppin’ all over you

 

Tell me am I wrong

Holdin’ on to you so tight

Am I wrong

Holdin’ on to you so tight

If your other man come to claim you

He'd better be ready

Ready for a long long fight

 

Well I gotta be strong

Well I know you're dependin’ on me

You know I gotta be strong

I know you're dependin’ on me

To give you all of my attention

All of my time

And all of the love you need

 

Am I wrong

Tryin to hold on to you

Tell me am I wrong

Tryin to hold on to you

I just wanna make a home for you baby

And all of your children too

Paroles

Did You Just Take My Heart - Amaury Faivre

I fell in love with you, so easily

You were so beautiful, threw myself at your feet

I gave my heart to you, placed it in your palms

It felt so good at first, so safe and soft

 

Did you just take my heart, so you can tear it apart ?

Did you just take my heart to see my cryin’ ?

Stop squeezin’ it so hard, I can’t breathe and hardly talk

Did you just take my heart, to put me down

 

Once you knew I was caught, roped in and bound

You bared your hidden claws, started playin’ around

It was a deadly game of cat and mouse

When I tried to escape, you’d stalk me then pounce

 

Did you just take my heart, so you can tear it apart ?

Did you just take my heart to see my cryin’ ?

Stop squeezin’ it so hard, I can’t breathe and hardly talk

Did you just take my heart, to put me down

 

Well you can keep my heart, you know that ruin’s not mine

Tomorrow I’ll be gone, to a place you can’t find

You know I’ll never be around, you’ll never see me anymore

First Time I Met The Blues - Buddy Guy, Eurreal Montgomery

Buddy Guy - Play The Blues

1972

The first time I met the blues

People, you know I was walkin', I was walkin' down through the woods

Yes, the first time, the first time I met you, blues

Blues you know I was walkin', I was walkin' down through the woods

Yes, I've watched my house burnin' blues

Blues, you know you done me, you done me all the harm that you could

 

When the blues got after me

People, you know they ran me from tree to tree

Yes, the blues got after me

Blues, you know you ran me, ran me from tree to tree

Yes, you should-a heard me beg ya, blues

Ah, blues, don't murder me

 

Yes, good mornin', blues

Blues, I wonder, I wonder what you're doin' here so soon

Yes, good mornin', good mornin', good mornin', mister blues

Blues, I wonder, I keep wonderin' what you're doin' here so soon

Yes, you know you'll be with me every mornin', blues

Every night and every noon

Hip Girl - Amaury Faivre

When you see the girl, Walkin’ down the streets

She’s the pretty girl, Gettin’ down in beat

Look at the girl, For her all the peasants gonna creep

She’s the only girl Who’s makin’ everybody dream

See the hips, the crazy hips

The streetscape wavin’ all around

This is the hip hip hip girl

 

I’m walkin’ behind her, Her footsteps hard to find

Hear the heels see the fire, Of her hair like a lullaby

When I get close enough, I Can catch such a sweet smell

Of her when she coughs, On me she’d put a spell

See the hips, the crazy hips

The streetscape wavin’ all around

This is the hip hip hip girl

 

Let’s get back to this girl cos I’ve been on her track for a bucha time,

When I see she’s gettin’ in a lil store, I’d like to ask her «what could I buy, But...

I’m too much impressed, and chances seems too far away from me,

I’m almost leaving, Almost out of the game, ready to get back home without tryin’ anything

And I see the hips the crazy hips, And it turns my mind wild

And I just get right though the door, With a whisper in my eyes

 

And I’m walking in the streets, Hand in hand with the girl

Both of us now in beat, I Had my chance to cease the Pearl

And I Look at the girl, For her all the peasants gonna creep

She’s the only girl, Who’s making everybody dream

See the hips, the crazy hips

The streetscape wavin’ all around

She is my hip hip hip girl

The gypsy woman told my mother

Before I was born

I got a boy-child's comin'

He's gonna be a son-of-a-gun

He's gonna make pretty women's

Jump and shout

Then the world gonna know

What this all about

Don't you know I'm here

Everybody knows I'm here

Well, you know I'm the hoochie-coochie man

Everybody knows I'm here

 

I got a black cat bone

I got a mojo too

I got John the Conqueror

I'm gonna mess with you

I'm gonna make you girls

Lead me by my hand

Then the world'll know

The hoochie-coochie man

Don't you know I'm here

Everybody knows I'm here

Well, you know I'm the hoochie-coochie man

Everybody knows I'm here

 

On the seventh hour

On the seventh day

On the seventh mont

The seventh doctor say

"He was born for good luck

And that you see

I got seven hundred dollars

And don't you mess with me

But you know I'm here

Everybody knows I'm here

Well, you know I'm the hoochie-coochie man

Everybody knows I'm here

Life By The Drop - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Stevie Ray Vaughan - The Sky Is Crying

1991

Hello there my old friend

Not so long ago it was till the end

We played outside in the pourin' rain

On our way up the road we started over again

You're livin' out dreams of you on top

My mind is achin' oh lord it won't stop

That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

 

Up and down that road in our worn out shoes

Talkin' 'bout good things and singin' the blues

You went your way and I stayed behind

We both knew it was just a matter or time

You're livin' out dreams of you on top

My mind is achin' oh lord it won't stop

That's how it happened life by the drop

 

No waste of time we're allowed today

Churnin' up the past, there's no easier way

Times been between us, a means to an end

God its good to be here walkin' together my friend

You're livin' out dreams of you on top

My mind is achin' oh lord it won't stop

That's how it happened life by the drop

No Shoes - John Lee Hooker

No food on my table

And no shoes to go on my feet

No food on my table

And no shoes to go on my feet

My children cry for mercy

They got no place to call your own

 

Hard times, hard times

Hard times seem like a jealous thing

Hard times, hard times

Hard times seem like a jealous thing

If someone don't help me

And I just can't be around three months long

 

No shoes on my feet

And no food to go on my table

Oh, no, too sad

Children crying for bread

John Lee Hooker - Travellin'

1960

Old Love - Eric Clapton, Robert Cray

i can feel your body

When I'm lying in bed

There's too much confusion

Going around through my head

And it makes me so angry

To know that the flame still burns

Why can't I get over?

When will I ever learn?

Old love, leave me alone

Old love, go on home

 

I can see your face

But I know that it's not real

It's just an illusion

Caused by how I used to feel

And it makes me so angry

To know that the flame will always burn

I'll never get over

I know now that I'll never learn

Old love, leave me alone

Old love, go on home

Eric Clapton - Journeyman

1989

Repeat Offender - Amaury Faivre

No matter who many times, it’s made me bite the dust

I’ve laid my heart on the line, to find it was not enough

No matter how hard it’s been, to climb back out of the rut

Or even how many years, it took for me to adjust

 

In spite of all of the tears, I cried when it got too rough,

How I believe I’m sincere, in thinking now I’ll be tough

Though I don’t wanna complain, I’m better off to admit

I’d have to be quite insane, to make another attempt

 

The story ends, till a new one begins,

Caught unaware, just like some little kid

Though I beg mercy from the gods above,

When it comes to falling in love, I’m a repeat offender

When it comes to falling in love, I do it again

 

I’ve sworn that I’ll run away, at the first sign of weakness

I’ll guard my heart, keep it safe, from all of that tenderness

Oh non I won’t be a slave, to all those urges within

Think of the oath that I made, forget the joy and the bliss

 

The story ends, till a new one begins,

Caught unaware, just like some little kid

Though I beg mercy from the gods above,

When it comes to falling in love, I’m a repeat offender

When it comes to falling in love, I do it again

 

This time it won’t be the same, I’m gonna do it again

Ain’t got no lessons learned, no judgement, fear and pain

Even if I’m a hopeless case, I’m gonna do it anyway

When it comes to falling in love I do it again

 

Yeah let’s do it, let’s fall in love

come on let’s live, love and forget

When it comes to falling in love, I’m a repeat offender

When it comes to falling in love, I do it again

Shake, Rattle and Roll - Jesse Stone, Big Joe Turner

Big Joe Rurner - Shake, Rattle and Roll

1954

Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands

Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands

Get in that kitchen, make some noise with the pots and pans

 

Way you wear those dresses, the sun come shining through

Way you wear those dresses, the sun come shining through

I can't believe my eyes all that mess belongs to you

 

I said shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Well, you won't do right to save your doggone soul

 

I'm like a one-eyed cat peepin' in a seafood store

I'm like a one-eyed cat peepin' in a seafood store

Well, I can look at you an' tell you ain't no child no more

 

Shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Well, you won't do right to save your doggone soul

She's A Wonderful Girl - Amaury Faivre

It’s been long since you’ve been away

It’s been long since I’m all alone

It’s been long all these nights and days

Oh my Lord, where has she gone ?

 

In a week you told me you’d be back

It’s been 3 since I saw you last

How much longer will you make me wait

Oh my Lord, why’s she so late

 

She must be riding ‘cross the country in my 63 Ford

She had the pleasure takin’ my car

She’s a wonderful girl, but not for me

 

Only news I have is my money

I mean leavin’ my account each day

She didn’t even wanna take her phone

Oh my Lord, where has she gone

 

She must be riding ‘cross the country in my 63 Ford

She had the pleasure takin’ my car

She’s a wonderful girl, but not for me

 

She gets back home one night she’s deadly tired

She has been drivin’ for a dozen hours

Her mum she visited was much better

Oh my Lord, how could I forget that, and she said :

 

« 3 weeks without a phone call ain’t that strange

I tried so many times to call in vain

You’re a looser just get out of my place »

She’s a wonderful girl, but not for me

That's All Right - Jimmy Rodgers

You told me baby, once upon a time

You said if I would be yours, you would sure be mine

That's alright

I know you don't love me no more baby, but that's alright

Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

 

You told me baby, your love for me was strong

When I woke up little girl, half of this big world was gone

That's alright

I guess I'll never be the same but that's alright

Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

 

Please tell me baby, what's getting wrong with you?

You don't treat me halfway right baby, look a like you used to do

But that's alright

I guess I'll never be the same but that's alright

Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

Jimmy Rogers - That's All Right

Travelin' South - Gwendolyn Collins, Albert Collins

Albert Collins - Iceman

1991

Travelin' south, tryin' to work my way back home

I said I'm headed south, tryin' to work my way back home

I'm so broken an' hungry, ain't no money for the telephone

 

Feet so tired, I think I'm gonna lay down

I say my feets is so tired, ya'all, I think I'm gonna lay down

I got another hundred miles, before I make the next town

 

I'll be glad to leave this town, I ain't comin' back no more

I'll be glad to leave this town, y'all, I ain't comin' back no more

I'm gonna head back down to Texas, that's the only place I know

Walking Blues - Son House

I woke up this morning, feeling round for my shoes

Know 'bout 'at I got these, old walking blues

Woke up this morning, feeling round for my shoes

But you know 'bout 'at I, got these old walking blues

 

Lord, I feel like blowing my old lonesome horn

Got up this morning, my little Bernice was gone

Lord, I feel like blowing my lonesome horn

Well I got up this morning all I had was gone

 

Well leave this morn' of I have to ride the blind

I've feel mistreated and I don't mind dying

Leaving this morn', I have to ride a blind

Babe, I been mistreated, baby, and I don't mind dying

 

Well, some people tell me that the worried blues ain't bad

Worst old feeling I most ever had, some

People tell me that these old worried old blues ain't bad

It's the worst old feeling, I 'most ever had

 

She got an Elgin movement from her head down to her toes

Break in on a dollar most anywhere she goes

My head down to her toes, oh how nice

Lord she break in on a dollar most anywhere she goes
