Danger (J.J. Cale)

Danger, she's out into the night
Danger, she's such a pretty sight
She was treated so badly it seems
Now she's looking for a dream
Danger, she's out into the night
Danger, she walks the streets alone
Danger, all the bars she now knows
All the men that look her way
Could be hers, hers today
Danger, she's out into the night
Locked into a love affair
Didn't seem to go nowhere
With no choice, she thought she might
Rush out of the way and right into the night
Danger, she walks the streets alone
All the bars she now knows
All the men that look her way
Could be hers today
The risk she takes, to find someone new
She don't know where, or whom
She wants to do it, doing it right
She's going out, to the night
Danger, she's out into the night
Danger, she's such a pretty sight
Danger, she's out into the night
Danger, she's such a pretty sight
Danger, she's out into the night
Danger, she's such a pretty sight

Heads In Georgia (J.J. Cale)

Well my head's in Georgia but my feet is California bound
Well my head's in Georgia but my feet is California bound
'Cause that good lookin' woman I've got wants to leave this Georgia town
Well we ride them old freight trains and rent them automobiles
Lord we ride them old freight trains and rent them automobiles
'Cause that good lookin' woman is tired of these old Georgia days
And that lonesome old highway seems to be our way, no doubt
And that lonesome old highway seems to be our way, no doubt
'Cause that good lookin' woman and me we're just hangin 'out
Movin' trains and aeroplanes is all we do
I'm running right behind her just like she wants me to
Makes me no difference when all is said and done
Heading west into the setting sun
Well my head's in Georgia but my feet is California bound
'Cause that good lookin' woman I've got wants to leave this Georgia town
Well my head's in Georgia but my feet is California bound
Well my head's in Georgia but my feet is California bound
'Cause that good lookin' woman I've got wants to leave this Georgia town
'Cause that good lookin' woman I've got wants to leave this Georgia town
Good lookin' woman I've got wants to leave this Georgia town

Missing Person (J.J. Cale)

I've been asking some people, if they remember
A girl they'd forgotten, with brown eyes in color, red dress
Have you seen her, I think she's much leaner
I hear she is missing, it's true
She has gone out there somewhere, disappeared into thin air
I'd just like to find her, I'd like to remind her
The good times we had there, more than just good friends
I guess she is missing, it's true
I've been asking around, and what I have found
She moved on farther this time
I've been checking it out, there ain't no doubt
That woman used to be mine
She is a missing person
She's hiding away, you see
She is a missing person
She's so much lighter without me
She is a missing person
She's got a new rider, she's so much tighter
Missing person
She's hiding away from me
She up and she left, and now she is gone
She didn't even give me a clue
Didn't write me no notes, send me no letters
It's the truth
She is a missing person
Where are you
A missing person
Where are you
Missing person
Hiding away from me
Missing person
Missing person
Missing person
Missing person
Missing person
She is a missing person

When This War Is Over (J.J. Cale)

When this war is over
It will be a better day
When this war is over
It will be a better day
But it won't bring back
Those poor boys into grace
Ain't no sense in no action
Killing people all the time
Ain't no sense in no action
Killing people all the time
When it happens on the street
We call that a crime
Man he can't get along
He just won't agree
Who is right and who is wrong
The matter you see
All he knows is killing
It ain't the way to go
Gotta get a plan
And change our ways, you know
When this war is over
It will be a better day
When this war is over
It will be a better day
But it won't bring back
Those poor boys into grace
When this war is over
It will be a better day
When this war is over
It will be a better day
But it won't bring back
Those poor boys into grace

Sporting Life Blues (B. McGhee)

I'm getting tired of hanging 'round
Think I will marry and settle down
'Cause this old nightlife, this old sportlife is killing me
I've got a letter from my home
Most of my friends are dead and gone
I begin to worry, I begin to wonder
'Bout days to come
My mother used to talk to me
I was young and foolish and could not see
Now I've got no mother, my sisters and brothers don't care for me
I swear I'm gonna change my ways
I'm getting older everyday
When I was young and foolish it was so easy to run and play
I'm getting tired
Of hanging 'round
Think I will marry
And settle down
'Cause this old nightlife, this old sportlife is killing me
This old nightlife, this old sportlife is killing me

Dead End Road (J.J. Cale)

Well I feel like I'm running down a dead end road
Yes I feel like I'm running down a dead end road
I need someone to tell me which way I outta go
Say goodbye to the morning, hello, evenin' time
Say goodbye to the morning, down a road I'm flyin'
If I look way beyond me I'll be gettin' way behind
I can't seem to catch up distance keeps fallin' away
Can't seem to catch up distance keeps fallin' away
Make no difference where I go dead end road everyday
Lord I feel like I'm running down a dead end road
Well I feel like I'm running down a dead end road
I need someone to tell me which way I ought to go

It's Easy (J.J. Cale)

If you need a woman, in bed with you
Tell her up front, what you can do
It's easy, easy as pie
You don't have to b.s. her, you don't have to lie
If you play the guitar, it won't be long
You'll be writin' and singin' them songs
It's easy, easy you bet
You'll be big, if you don't quit
If you feel kinda lonesome, no friends in sight
Get yourself a dog, it will be all right
Get yourself two, lucky you
One thing nice, they'll be there twice to love you
It's so easy, getting through these times
So easy, with your life and mine
If a woman thinks she's ugly, or always depressed
She can go out and buy herself a new dress
It's easy, easy my friend
Solves all of her problems, that's for sure
It's so easy, getting through these times
So easy, with your life and mine
If cash is your problem, you might regret
Use that old plastic, slide two third in debt
It's easy, easy you see
If tomorrow never comes, everything is free
So easy, getting through these times
So easy, with your life and mine
It's so easy, getting through these times
So easy, with your life and mine

Hard To Thrill (E. Clapton, J. Mayer)

Hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore
Hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore
There is nothing you can show me
That I haven't seen before
I've got time to kill
Keeping to myself inside this room
Time to kill
Keeping to myself inside this room
Over forty years of Fridays
Would you give up trying too
Hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore
I'm hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore
There is nothing you can show me
That I haven't seen before
Hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore
Hard to thrill
Nothing really moves me anymore

Anyway The Wind Blows (J.J. Cale)

Some like this and some like that
And some don't know where it's at
If you don't get loose, if you don't groove
Well, your motor won't make it and your motor won't move
Bow-legged woman doing the boogaloo
She got the jive, she got to move
Turn around, do it again
Bow-legged woman, where've you been
Fat Jack owns a honky-tonk downtown
You can catch a woman if you hang around
You can tear down the door, tear down the wall
Fat Jack he don't care at all
Easy come, easy go
Anyway the wind blows
Hey, drummer, drummer, can you give me that beat
Can you give me that beat, that will move my feet
Guitar player been all around the world
He can't play a lick for looking at the girls
One two three four five six seven
Better change your ways or you won't get to heaven
Eight nine ten, gonna stop at eleven
Eleven just lays there and rhymes with seven
Some like this and some like that
And some don't know where it's at
If you don't get loose, if you don't groove
Your motor won't make it and your motor won't move
Easy come, easy go
Anyway the wind blows
If time don't tell you then don't ask me
I'm riding on a hurricane down to the sea
If you can't hear the music, turn it up loud
There's movement in the air and movement in the crowd
Some like this and some like that
And some don't know where it's at
If you don't get loose, if you don't groove
Well, your motor won't make it and your motor won't move
Easy come, easy go
Anyway the wind blows

Three Little Girls (E. Clapton)

When this world got me feeling low
I don't need nowhere else to go
As I get all the love I need
From three little girls
We're in the garden, collecting snails
On the bed, reading fairy tales
I get all I'll ever need
From three little girls
As all my world was sad and weary
All my days were winding down
Then you showed me a better way
My three little girls
Lord, you put me to the test
And led me through the wilderness
Then you showed me a brighter day
With three little girls
Julie Rose, and Ella Mae
Sophie Belle, you came to stay
You take my breath away
My three little girls
As all my world was sad and weary
All my days were winding down
You showed me a better way
My three little girls
Three little girls

Don't Cry Sister (J.J. Cale)

Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, in the morning
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, I tell you no lie
Don't cry sister cry, don't do it, don't do it
When Old Man Trouble knocks on your door
Don't give him no key, he just wants more
He'll turn your life to misery
To kick you down, just like me
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, in the morning
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
You woke downhearted and you feel so bad
Somebody wants something of nothing you had
Love don't come too easy, you see
A little bit of you and a little bit of me
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, in the morning
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, in the morning
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, I tell you no lie
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Everything'll be just fine
Everything'll be just fine

Last Will And Testament (J.J. Cale)

Well I met this old woman, she was hard as nails
I think she'd just come out of the county jail
But I loaned her some money, just to pay her rent
If I would she would put me in her last will and testament
Well I got lots of children, an ex-wife or two
I never hear from them, 'till the bills are due
The money I gave 'em, they already spent
If I would just help'em out, they would've put me in their last will and testament
You know I'm going over sixty, I'm older than most
It won't be long now, I'll be nothing but a ghost
It's my intentions, it's my intent
To leave all of them people out of my last will and testament
And when it's all over, they put you in the ground
Send my belongings to the lost and found
My intentions, it's my intent
To leave all of them people out of my last will and testament

Who Am I Telling You? (J.J. Cale)

It don't take no fool to love you
You stand out in any crowd
And I know men who want to own you
I can hear them talking loud
There ain't no point in just me talking
Who am I telling you
And you done got yourself together
And you can bet whithin in you
I just realised
I just realised
Who am I telling you
You never lose, you are a winner
It's a simple thing for you
If I'm standing at a crossroad
You know exactly what to do
From this moment on I loved you
Somewhere in between I learned
I'm just reaching out to touch you
It's the point of no return
I just realised
I just realised
And I just realised
Who am I, who am I, who am I telling you
I just realised
I just realised
And I just realised
Who am I, who am I, who am I telling you

Ride The River (J.J. Cale)

Floating down that old river, boy
All my worries far behind
Floating down that old river, boy
Leave old memories way behind
Yesterday slowly fading
All my life I've been waiting for this time
Floating down that old river, boy
Leaves me feeling good inside
Floating down that old river, boy
Trying to get to the other side
Yesterday slowly fading
I've been waiting now and forever for this ride
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Floating down that old river, boy
All my worries far behind
Floating down that old river, boy
Leave old memories way behind
Yesterday slowly fading
I've been waiting now and forever for this ride
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
Ride the river
Ride the river in this boat
