Instore: Chris, Duwayne, Luther, Cody


Luther Dickinson: I was surprised [Instores & Outtakes] came out in America. It really was just to get tour support for the European tour we just finished.

Stray Cat Blues
(M. Jagger/K. Richards)
Hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you're no scared-eyed honey
There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
It's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

I can see that you're fifteen years old
No I don't want your I.D.
I can see you're just so far from home
It no hanging matter
That's no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don't you scratch like that
Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
I bet your, I bet your mama don't know you sweet like that
I bet your mama don't know you spit like that.

You look so scared and you're so far from home
But you don't really miss your mother
You look so scared I'm no mad-brained bear
That's no hanging matter
Aw, that's no capital crime
Oh, yeah
Woo!

I bet your, bet your mama don't know that you scratch like that
I bet your mama don't know you bite like that.

You say you got a friend, and she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs?
If she's so wild then she can join in, too
It's no hanging matter
And no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don't you scratch like that
Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
I bet your, I bet your mama don't know you bite like that
I'll bet she never saw you scratch my back

The Weight
I pulled into Nazareth
I was feelin' about half past dead
I just need to find a place
Where I can lay my head
'Hey, mister, can you tell me
Where a man might find a bed?'
He just grinned and shook my hand
"No" was all he said.

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (put the load right on me)

I picked up my bag
I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw old Carmen and the Devil
Walkin' side by side
I said, 'Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown'
She said, 'I gotta go, but my friend can stick around'

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (put the load right on me)

Go down, Moses
Thereís nothiní you canít say
It's just ol' Luke
And Luke's waitin' on the Judgment Day
'Well, Luke, my friend
What about young Anna Lee?'
He said, 'Do me a favor son wonít ya
Stay an' keep Anna Lee company.'

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (put the load right on me)

Crazy Chester follow me
And he caught me in the fog
He said, ĎI would you fix you right
If you take Jack, my dog.í
I said Ďwait a minute Chester,
You know Iím a peaceful man.í
He said, Ďthatís ok, boy, wonít you feed when you can.í

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (put the load right on me)

Get your a cannon ball
Now take me on down the line
May bag is sinkin' low
And I do believe it's time
To get back to Ms Fanny
You know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (put the load right on me)

Eyes
(Dicksinson/Chew/Duwayne Burnside/Carwyn Ellis/James Mathus)
Ainít never been to Heaven
But Iíve been told angels in Heaven got sweet jelly rolls
Canít take my eyes off youÖ.

Well it mustíve been the devil introduced you and I
You were a rambliní woman with a rambliní mind
Canít take my eyes off youÖ

Canít take my eyes off you, baby
Canít take my eyes off you, girl
Canít take my eyes off you, baby

Waitin on my wings moving side by side
Riding two white horses where the eagle bird flies
Canít take my eyes off youÖ

Canít take my eyes off you, baby
Canít take my eyes off you, girl
Canít take my eyes off you, baby

Skyway
(Paul Westerberg)
You take the skyway, high above the busy little one-way
In my stupid hat and gloves, at night I lie awake
Wonderin' if I'll sleep
Wonderin' if we'll meet out in the street

To take the skyway, It don't move at all like a subway
It's got bums when it's cold like any other place
It's warm up inside
Sittin' down and waitin' for a ride
Beneath the skyway

Then one day I saw you walkiní down that little one-way
Near he place I catch my ride almost everyday
Wasnít a damn thing I could do or say
Up in the skyway
Skyway
