• Take it, you can have it
    What I got baby I can't hold
    If you find the secret
    Tell me how to build a mold

    And I can't handle your problems
    So don't try to handle mine
    Get yourself a shotgun a pocket full of shells
    And we can while away the time

    Look up at the wall, do it right
    If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice
    But if you need it, got to have it
    Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
    Look up at the wall, you know you gotta crawl
    Before you start crawling get ready to fall
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all

    Get it right, do it nice
    But if you make a mistake you're gonna pay for it twice
    But if you need it, gotta have it
    Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
    Look up the walls
    You know you gotta crawl
    But if you start calling you're ready to fall
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all
    Don't expect no help at all
    Don't expect no help at all
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all

  • Empty pages before my eyes
    Do not deny or criticize
    Empty bedrooms where I've paid my dues
    Watching the ceiling instead of you
    Can you tell me where you've gone?
    Ain't no one around to hear my songs

    I've got some songs that I'd like to sing
    Always brings down some other thing
    Where can I go, my paths are broken?
    It seems like your love is just a token
    So won't you stay with me?
    Oh, stay with me

    Up in the morning, out the door
    Doing some business that I never know
    Come back in the evening with your [mouth all forgot] (note 1)
    You know I got a mind to put you out

  • Operator, can you help me
    Help me if you please
    Give me the right area code
    And the number that I need
    My rider left upon the midnight flyer
    Singing like a summer breeze

    I think she's somewhere down south
    Down about Baton Rouge
    But I just can't remember no number
    A number I can use
    Directory don't have it, Central done forgot it
    Got to find a number to use

    Trying to check out her number
    Trying to run down her line
    Operator said that's privileged information
    And it ain't no business of mine
    It's flooding down in Texas, the poles are down in Utah
    Got to find a private line

    She could be hanging round a steel mill
    Working in a house of blue light
    Riding a getaway bus out of Portland
    Talking to the night
    I don't know where she's going, I don't care where she's been

  • Well it was early in the morning
    When my blues come falling down
    I want to tell you, it was early in the morning now
    When my blues come falling down
    Well you know, you know, it felt so, so bad
    When my baby, yeah, she's been around

    Whoa it was but a while after midnight
    When the rooster crowed for day
    Whoa it was but a while after midnight
    When that rooster began to crow for day
    Well I been mistreating my baby
    That's about a crime that I need to pay

    Come back baby
    Whoa, please don't go
    I said come back baby
    Come on darling, please don't go
    Well you know the way I love you rider
    More than you ever know

    Yes Lord, please stop her
    I won't get drunk no more
    Whoa Lord, please stop her now
    I want to tell you that I won't drunk no more
    Well you know she put me out in the morning
    She drive this poor boy from her door

  • What are they seeing, when they look in each other's eyes?
    What are they feeling, when they see each other's smile?
    Is it a love I've never known - or an emotion that I've outgrown?

    Did I take a wrong turning on life's winding road?
    Won't somebody help me find the right way to go?
    My life need some correction, alteration in direction
    Won't somebody comfort me for a while - yes, I'm lost

    What is the secret of this tie that binds?
    Two souls in communion, both body and mind
    Is it special magic, or just the nature of things?
    Conceived of great spirit, not for beggars but kings

    You who have found it, please help me along
    I'm a man, I'm a man, - I'm not made out of stone
    My needs they are simple, I don't want many things,
    But I truly want to fly on those wings of love one more time.

    That's all I need (fly up, fly home)
    I want to fly on them wings (fly up, fly home)
    I want to fly on them wings of love (fly up, fly home)
    I'm a stranger here (fly up, fly home)
    Won't somebody help me now (fly up, fly home)
    I wake up early in the morning (fly up, fly home)
    you know I never saw you babe (fly up, fly home)
    I just can't seem to understand
    Can't seem to understand what's wrong (fly up, fly home)
    What I wanna do is take a little ride with you, on the wings of love
    Woh-oh one more time, one more time.
