You're the Man
(Marvin Gaye/Kenneth Stover)
Talkin', talkin' to the people
Tryin' to get them to go your way
Tellin' lies, not to worry
That we won't be led astray
So blind, unsignified
Your opponents always lying
Think about the mistakes you make
I believe America's at stake
You know, busin', busin' is the issue
If you have a plan wager
If you have a plan
If you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
Hey hey, got to vote for you
You're the man
We don't wanna hear no more lies
About how you planned a compromise
We want our dollar value increased
Employment to rise
The nation's taxation
Is causin' all, all this inflation
Don't give us no V sign
Turn around and rob the people blind
Economics is the issue
Do you have a plan wager?
'Cause if you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
You're the man
Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land
People marching on Washington
Better hear what they have to say
'Cause the tables just might turn against you, brother
Set around Election Day
Politics and hypocrites
Is turning us all into lunatics
Can you take the guns from our sons?
Right all the wrongs this administration has done?
Peace and freedom is the issue
Do you have a plan wager?
If you've got a plan
If you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
Hey hey, got to vote for you
'Cause you're the man
Got to vote for you

Run On
(Elvis Presley)
Well you may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Stop God almighty let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dews
Coming down on my bended knees
Talking to the man from Galilee
My God spoke and he spoke so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angel's feet
He put one hand upon my head
Great God almighty let me tell you what he said

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time,
Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down

You may throw your rock and hide your hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man
As sure as God made the day and the night
What you do in the dark will be brought to the light
You may run and hide, slip and slide
Trying to take the mote from your neighbour's eyes
As sure as God made the rich and poor
You gonna reap just what you sow

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down
Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Some people go to church just to sit in the fire
Trying to make a date with the neighbour's wife
Brother let me tell you as sure as you're born
You better leave that woman alone
Because one of these days mark my word
You think that brother is going to work
And you'll sneak up and knock on that door
That's all brother you'll knock no more

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down
Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

In this bad old Sunday
But whisky and bad love,
Wouldn't let me have my way

I rolled and I tumbled
And I rolled and I tumbled

Boomerís Story
Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know
Take a tip from one who's travelled
And never stopped a-ramblin' 'round
'Cause once you get the roamin' fever
You never want to settle down, boy
You never want to settle down

I met a little gal in Frisco
And I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roamin'
Goin' to settle down for life
Then I heard the whistle blowin'
And I knew it was the Red Ball Train
And I left that gal beside the railroad
And I never saw the gal again, boy
I never saw the gal again
Saw the gal again
I never saw the gal again
Left that gal beside the railroad
And I never saw the gal again

Traveled all over the country
I've travelled everywhere
I been on every Branch Line railroad
And I never paid a nickel fare
I been from Maine to Califor'ny
And from Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go, boy
Now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer's story
Pay attention to what I say
Well, I hear another train a-comin'
Guess I'll be on my way
If you wanna do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by, boys
So I can hear the trains go by
Hear the trains go
Hear the trains go by
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by

Ragged But Iím Right
I just dropped in to tell you people I'm ragged but right
I'm a thief and a gambler, and I get drunk every night
I eat a porterhouse steak three times a day for my board
More than any gambler in this town can afford

I got a big electric fan keeps cool when I sleep
Crazy little baby runs all around at my feet
I'm a ramblin' gambler drunk every night
I tell you people I'm ragged but right

I go anywhere I don't pay no fair
I can ride a freight train almost anywhere
If I win or lose I know I get the blues
I'm ramblin gamblin all night, yes sir!

I just dropped in to tell you people I'm ragged but right

Crazy little baby runs all around at my feet

No Mo' - DDT/Live version
Back in the day, we were the kids in trouble, home-sliced, school skipping
Me and my brother, breakdanciní duels, dirt clod fightiní fools
Like two dogs scrappiní over the bone, we were fightiní over the telephone
and now we don't take calls...
used to climbs the walls, juiced up on kool-aid, caffeine,
running wild, and pumpiní through our veins
It just ainít the same, it just ainít the same, no moí
It ainít like it used to be
It ainít like it used to be around here no moí
If I didnít have my memories
Iíd be so broke down poí
It ainít like it used to be around here no moí

Once upon a one, two, three
Music was a mystery
When I was young it fascinated me
I didnít know how to play back in the day
Headphones, had my Silvertone
Tuned to open E
Reel-to-reel rolliní
Hey Bo Diddley flowing
This is all I ever wanted to do
Now here I am, 22 (32), I got it goiní on
Gonna continue, got it good, knock on wood
I canít complain, but thinkiní back on the old days
It just ainít the same, it just ainít the same
It ainít like it used to be
It ainít like it used to be
It ainít like it used to be around here no mo, no mo

Big city used to be a forest long gone
Progress went wrong
Shouldíve let it alone, blood bath, buffalo bones
America is bloody, the white man was wrong
America is flooded, the white man was wrong
Indian, African, man, it ainít nothiní but some skin
The Mississippi delta was a jungle Ďfore it had an English name (before the white man came)
It just ainít the same
It ainít like it used to be
It ainít like it used to be
It ainít like it used to be around here no moí


Down in Mississippi
(J.B. Lenoir)
Far back as I can remember
Either had to plow or
Carry that ole full sack
Down to the old turn road
Down in Mississippi, down in Mississippi
Down in Mississippi where I come from
Down in Mississippi where I belong
Way down!

They have a hunting season on the rabbit
Shoot him, boy, and youíre sure gonna go to jail
Hunting season is always open on men
Nobody needs no bail
Down in Mississippi, down in Mississippi
Down in Mississippi where I come from
Down in Mississippi where I belong
Way down!

Ain't nothing I got against Mississippi
Also is the home of my wife
You know I feel just like a lucky man
Get away with my life
Down in Mississippi, down in Mississippi
Down in Mississippi where I come from
Down in Mississippi where I belong
Way down!


Friend of Mine


Write Me A Few Lines
Lord, when you get home, pretty darlin', please, write me a few of your lines
Lord, when you get home, pretty baby, please write me a few of your lines
Lord, that'd be consolation, Lord mama, to my worried mind
Lord, I left my baby, standing in our back door cryin'
Lord, I left my baby, standing alone in our back door cryin'
Man, I never felt so sorry no, mama, till she said goodbye
I'm going down to the river, I'm gonna sit down on the ground
Lord, I'm going down to the river, baby, I'm gonna sit down on the ground
I'm gonna let the waves of water, Lord mama, wash my troubles down
Wash my troubles down
Lord, when you get home, pretty darlin', please, write me a few of your lines
Lord, when you get home, pretty baby, please write me a few of your lines

Comin' In On A Wing And A Prayer
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
With our one motor gone
We can still carry on
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer

What a show, what a fight, boys
We really hit our target for tonight
With our one motor gone
We can still carry on
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer

How we sing as we limp through the air
Look below, there's our field over there
With our one motor gone
We can still carry on
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
