Custard Pie


Rock down, lady, by the sea

Rock down, mama, just dream of me

Mama, love me, fool around all night long

Well, I'm made of braken gravy

I should know right from wrong

See me comin' slowly on by your door

Ain't no stranger, I been this way before

See me comin', mama, slowly on by your door

I ain't no stranger, I been this way before

Put on your night shirt and your morning gown

You know by night I'm gonna shake 'em on down

Put on your night shirt, mama

And your morning gown

Well, you know by night

I'm surely gonna shake 'em on down

Shake it, shake it

Ooh, your custard pie, ain't seen the like

When you cut it, mama, save me a slice

Your custard pie, I declare, ain't seen the like

I like your custard pie

When you cut it, mama

Mama, please save me a slice, oh

Chew on a piece of your custard pie (Repeat)

Drop down (Repeat)

The Rover


I've been to London, seen seven wonders

I know to trip is just to fall

I used to walk it, sometimes I'd roll it

I always knew what it was for

There can't be no denyin'

That the wind is shakin' down

And the flatworm cryin'

And the new plague on the land

*If we could just join hands

If we could just join hands

If we could just join (hands)

Converse the planet when heaven send me

I saw the kings who rule them all

Still by the firelight and purple moonlight

I hear the rustin' rivers call

And the wind is cryin'

I'm a little bit more grown cold

My lover, she is lyin'

On the dark side of the globe

(* Repeat)

You got me rockin' when I ought to be alone

Darlin', come on, tell me, darlin', which way to go

You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me spinnin'

Won't you tell me darlin', which way to go

That's right

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry

And I would dearly like to know

I always wonder if earthly plunder

Will leave us anything to show

And our time is flyin'

See the candle burnin' low

Is the new world risin' from the shambles of the old

If we could just join hands (Repeat)

If we could just, if we could just (Repeat)

Join hands

That's all it takes (Repeat)

Yeah, yeah, yeah (Repeat) that's right (Repeat)

In My Time Of Dying


In my time of dyin', want nobody to moan

All I want them to do is take my body home

*Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Jesus, got to make you, shiver

Jesus, gonna make you

Jesus, gonna make you my dyin' bed

Meet me, Jesus, meet me

Ooh, meet me in the middle of the air

If my wings should fail me. lord

Oh, please meet me with another pair

(* Repeat)

Jesus, gonna make you, somebody, somebody

Oh, Jesus, gonna make you

Jesus gonna make you my dyin' bed

Oh, Saint Peter, I can make amends

Won't you let me in

I never did no wrong, I never did no wrong

Oh, oh Gabriel, let me blow your horn

Let me blow your horn

I never did no wrong, did no wrong

I only can be young once

I never thought I'd do anybody no wrong

No not once

Oh, I did somebody so good

Somebody some good, yeah

Oh, did somebody some good, yeah

I must have did somebody some good, yeah

Oh, I believe I did, I seen the smilin' faces

I know I must have left some traces

And I seen them in the streets

And I seen them in the theater

And I even felt my feet

And I never tried to be real

Oh, lord, deliver me all the wrongs I've done

Oh, you can deliver me, lord

I only wanted to have some fun

Oh, keep the angels marchin', marchin'

Keep them marchin', keep them marchin', marchin'

Oh, my Jesus (Repeat)

That's got to be my Jesus

It's got to be, it's got to be my Jesus

It's got to be, oh it's got to be my Jesus

Oh, gonna take me home

Come on, come on

I can hear the angels singin', oh

Here they come, here they come, here they come

Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye

Oh, it's pretty good up here, pretty good up here

I'll touch Jesus (Repeat)

Oh, oh yeah, I seen him, yeah, come on

Oh, don't you make it my dyin', dyin', dyin', cough

(That's gonna be a long ending. Come have a listen then.)

(Oh yes, thank you.)

Houses Of The Holy


Let me take you to the movies

Can I take you to the show

Let me be yours ever truly

Can I make your garden grow

>From the houses of the holy

We can watch the white doves go

>From the door comes Satan's daughter

And it only goes to show that you know

There's an angel on my shoulder

In my hand a sword of gold

Let me wander in your garden

And the seeds of love I'll sow, you know

So the world is spinning faster

Are you dizzy when you're stoned

Let the music be your master

Will you heed the master's call

Oh, Satan and man

Said there ain't no use in cryin'

'Cause it'll lonely only drive you mad

Does it hurt to hear him lyin'

Was this the only world you had, oh

So let me take you, take you to the movie

Can I take you, baby, to the show

Why don't you let me be yours ever truly

Can I make your garden grow, you know I'll try

Trampled Under Foot


Grease me down, good electric

I could lay it on the road, mama, it ain't no trick

*Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout love

Talkin' 'bout

Oh, trouble free transmission puncture to explode

Mama let me pump your gas

Mama let me do it all

(* Repeat)

Take that heavy metal underneath your hood

Baby, I could rev all night, leave a big pile of tubes

(* Repeat)

Automobile club covered, really built in style

Special tradition, mama, come feast your eyes

(* Repeat)

Factory air conditioned, took me by surprise

Guaranteed to run for hours, mama, brand new tires

(* Repeat)

Groovin' on the freeway, drivin' on the road

>From now on my gasoline is gonna be free of lead

(* Repeat)

I can't stop talkin' about

I can't stop talkin' about, oh yes, drive on

Come to me for service every hundred miles

baby, let me change your valves, fix your overdrive

(* Repeat)

Fully automatic, comes in any size

Makes me wonder what I did before I got synchronized

(* Repeat)

Oh, baby, like suspension I just couldn't hold

I'm so glad I took a look inside you showroom door

(* Repeat)

I can't stop talkin' about love

I can't stop talkin' about love

Oh, let me let it down (Repeat)

I can't stop talkin' about

I can't stop talkin' about love, my baby . . .

Kashmir


Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face

And stars fill my dream

I'm a traveller of both time and space

To be where I have been

To sit with elders of the gentle race

This world has seldom seen

They talk of days for which they sit and wait

All will be revealed

Talk in song from tongues of lilting grace

Sounds caress my ear

And not a word I heard could I relate

The story was quite clear

Ooh, baby, I been blind

Oh, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'

Oh, ooh yes, I been blind

Mama, mama, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

All I see turns to brown

As the sun burns the ground

And my eyes fill with sand

As I scan this razor line

Can I find, can I find where I've been

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace

Like sorts inside a dream

Leave the path the led me to that place

Yellow desert stream

Like Shangri-la beneath the summer moon

I will return again

As the dust that floats finds you

Will move and search Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds fill my sails

Cross the sea of years

With no provision but an open face

Along the straits of fear

Oh, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah

And my feet wear my fickle way to stay

Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down

Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down, so down

Ooh, my baby, oh, my baby

Let me take you there

Come on, oh let me take you there

Let me take you there

In The Light


And if you feel that you can't go on

And your will's sinking low

Just believe and you can't go wrong

In the light you will find the road

You'll find the road

Hey, ooh, did you ever believe

That I could leave you standin' out in the cold

Hey, baby, I know how it feels

'Cause I have slipped through

To the very depths of my soul

Oh, baby, I just want to show you what I'd give you

In case you ever been on the road

Now, listen, oh, as I was and would do for you, too

Honey, as you would do for me

I would share your load, let me share load

Ooh, let me share you load

And if you feel that you can't go on

In th light you will find the road

Hey, oh the winds of change my blow around you

But that will always be so

Oh wo, when love is pain it can devour you

If you are ever alone

I'll share your load, I will share your load

Baby, let me, oh let me, in the light

Everybody needs a light, oh yeah, oh baby

Everybody, everybody, everybody sure 'nuff they do

Light, light, light, in the light (Repeat)

Down By The Seaside


Down by the seaside

See the boats go sailin'

Can the people hear, oh

What the little fish are sayin'

*The people turned away

The people turned away

Down in the city streets

See all the folk go racin', racin'

No time left, no no

To pass the time of day

(* Repeat)

So far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run

See how they run, see how they run

Run, run, run

Do you still do the twist

Do you find you remember things that well

I want to tell you, some folks twistin' every day

Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell

Out in the country

Hear the people singin'

Singin' 'bout their progress

Knowin' where they're goin', yeah, yeah

(* Repeat)

Sing loud for the sunshine

Pray hard for the rain

And show your love for lady nature

And she will come back again

(* Repeat)

Now they know where they're goin'

Ten Years Gone


Then as it was, then again it will be

Though the course may change sometimes

Rivers always reach the sea

Like stars of fortune

Each has separate rays

On the wings of maybe

Down in birds of prey

Kind of makes me feel sometimes

I didn't have to grow

But as the eagle leaves the nest

He got so far to go

Changes fill my time

Baby, that's all right with me

In the midst I think of you

And how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody

And really need 'em bad

Did you ever really want somebody

The best love you ever had

Do you ever remember me, baby

Did it feel so good

'Cause it was just the first time

And you knew you would

Turn the eyes and I sparkle

Senses growing keen

Tasting love along the way

See your feathers preen

Kind of make you feel sometimes

Didn't hard to grow

We are eagles of one nest

The nest is in our souls

Vixen in my dreams with great surprise to me

Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be

Oh darlin', oh darlin' (Repeat)

I'm never gonna leave you, I'm never gonna leave you

Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone (Repeat)

Night Flight


I received a message from my love across the water

You sat laughin' as you wrote the ends in sight

So I said goodbye to all my friends

And packed my hopes inside a matchbox

'Cause I know it's time to fly

*Oh yeah, come on, meet me in the morning (won't you)

Meet me in the middle of the night (night night)

Oh yeah, the mornin' light is comin'

Don't it make you wanna (try to) feel all right

I just jumped a train that never stops

So now so how'll they know I never finished

Payin' for my ride

Just now someone pushed the dime into my hand

Tell me I'm the type of man

To fight the fight that I'll require

(* Repeat)

Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin'

Nothin' here to make me stay

Oh, mama, well it must be time I'm goin'

They're knockin' down them doors

They're tryin' to take me away

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell

And ring it loud and clear

Please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell

And tell the people they got to fly away from here

I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby

Southern lady, had a very, very special smile

We ware in the middle of a change in destination

When the train starts, all together we will smile

Oh, come on, come on, now meet me in the morning

Won't you meet me in the middle of the night

Night, night, night

Oh yeah, everybody knows the mornin' time is comin'

Don't it make you wanna feel all right

Oh, yeah, make me feel all right, fly now, baby

Get to fly, yeah, fly my baby

The Wanton Song


See you movin' in the night again

Tell me I see too much, baby

Same old thing, I'm on a plane

And the wheel rolls on

Silent moves through the flames

>From the deep behind the soul

Guess my nightmares have now begun

Left me barely holdin' on

To strangers I seem a gentleman

When we know the time has come

Lose my sense and lose command

You know even rivers run

Seems like every time I fall

I think this is the one

Oh, in the darkness can you hear me call

Another day has just begun, another day

See all of my faces is changed

Some have a ways to come

Even my fire needs a brand new flame

And the wheel rolls on, rolls on

Boogie With Stu


Been in town, my baby

We just got to run home

Yeah, darlin', we just got to go home

I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop

Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah honey

We been shakin' all night

Oh, darlin' we just got to run right

Ooh, my head, rock on, rock on

Hey baby, hey baby (Repeat)

I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop

Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock

I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop

Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock

Black Country Woman


(Shall we roll it, Jimmy? We're rolling on what, one?)

(No, one again)

(Got to get this airplane on)

(Naw, leave it, yeah)

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so

Didn't have to love me, mama, let me go

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

You didn't have to make me a total disgrace

Didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

Oh, that's all right, it awful doggone clear

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean

Oh oh, baby, why you treat me mean

You didn't have to crucify me like you did

You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid

Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean

You didn't have to say you'd always be by my side

Didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushing bride

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean

But that's all right, I know your sister, too

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so

You didn't have to leave me, mama, let me go

Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you

You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace

You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face

Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you

Oh, but that's all right, I'd be the same way, too, oh yeah

Now, my baby, you didn't have to crucify me like you did

You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

You didn't have to tell me you would be my own

You didn't have to tell me, baby, let me go

Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you

Oh, that's all right, I know your sister, too

Oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah

What's the matter with you, mama

Sick Again


On the window of your ready little scene

I'm lookin' in your eyes

One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen

Ain't a lady in the city of lights

*Oh, do you know my name

Do I look the same

You know I'm the one you want, baby

I must be the one you need, yeah

Reflections, baby, from your teenage dream

In the lobby of a hotel cafe dive

Through the circus of the L. A. queens

I passed you round, went right on by

Oh, how you play the game

Still don't know your name

You know I'm the one you want, baby

Yes I'd love to be the one you need

Oh, you got to tell me

Get this, get this

Lips like cherries on the frown of a queen

Come on, flash it right in my eyes

Said you dug me since you were thirteen

Then you giggle as you hurt inside

(* Repeat)

Baby, I got to tell you I'm the one you want

And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah

Oh get it, come on, now (Repeat)

Hours, hours, and the moments in between

Oh baby, I could count the times

I've thought of comin' on a plane and leavin'

Baby, dry those silver eyes

(* Repeat)

You know I'm the one you want

Yes, I'm the one you need

Oh, that's right
