Who Knew (J.J. Cale)

Who knew
Our life would be so complicated
Who knew
That we would be so automated
No time to think
On the brink
Who knew
Who knew
Not me, not you or anyone else
Come to think of it
It's true
We're misinformed and always warned to look out
Who knew
Be ready to fabricate and navigate your personal fate
You've got to articulate, tolerate, then circulate 
Rearrange and change your thing just to accommodate
Go there, be back, turn around, go back, hurry up then wait, don't be late
Who knew
I've got yours and you've got mine
Hurry up there ain't no time
Accelerate sometime this year
Too much of this and not enough of that
Dislocate is where we're at
Sign of the times is here
Who knew
Oh my
Just a sigh of relief
There's too much grief
In this life
Too much strife
You've got to compete or turn a new leaf or die
The reason why
When you go around, uptown
You can't be looking down
Early rise
Be wise
If you're a joker no one will recognize
Sympathize or compromise
With you
Blank stares, everywhere
Tough luck man, who cares
Who knew
Too much of this and not enough of that
Dislocate is where we're at
Sign of the times is here
Who knew
Who knew
Our life would be so complicated
That we would be so automated
No time to think
Who knew

Former Me (J.J. Cale)

Yes I used to know a fellow
He was lighter on his feet
Just as quick as a sparrow
That was the former me
Since I've been here for so long now
Now I think that I can see
Acquaint myself with that fellow
Who was the former me
Those days have been lost in my mind
The fancy man I won't deny
When I think about it nowadays
Can recall it for a while
From the dawn to the sunset of my life
It's a trip I could not see
Not 'til later did I recognize the guy
That was the former me
Those days have been lost in my mind
The fancy man I won't deny
When I think about it nowadays
Can recall it for a while
Since I've been here for so long now
Now I think that I can see
Acquaint myself with that fellow
Who was the former me

Where The Sun Don't Shine (J.J. Cale)

You told me you didn't love me no more
Yes, I heard that one before
Same thing, same news
Treat me like a fool that you can use
Let me tell you, I won't be kind
You can put it right there
Where the sun don't shine
I ain't lying
Where the sun don't shine
You can take this and put it away
You can use it another day
Just remember, keep this in mind
You can put it right there
Where the sun don't shine
Last time I seen you, it was on my back
Been so many times, I can't keep track
You play around, you know it's true
I've got some information, just for you
If you talk to me, you will find
You can put it right there
Where the sun don't shine
I ain't lying
Where the sun don't shine

Down To Memphis (J.J. Cale)

Well I'm going down to Memphis
With my heart in my hand
Find me a frisky woman that do needs to love me mad
I'm gonna tell her what she wants to, dear
I'll be kissing soft and low
Yes I'm going down to Memphis
Ain't got too far to go
I'll be beating 'round them bushes, searching everywhere
It's all about them Memphis girls, they're everywhere
They can spread their wings around me
Let them flew in flock
Yes I'm going down to Memphis
Ain't got too far to go
Ain't no detours on my pathway
No crossroads I can see
Having fun down in Memphis
Memphis, Tennessee
With those everlovin' women
The reason that I know
Yes I'm going down to Memphis
Ain't got too far to go
You can talk about that cotton ball that goes most everywhere
You can see that ol' man river rollin'
Past the city square
You can feel the heat of summer
But there's one thing that I know
Well I'm going down to Memphis
Ain't got too far to go
Yes I'm going down to Memphis
Ain't got too far to go
Yes I'm going down to Memphis

Strange Days (J.J. Cale)

Strange days
That's coming upon us
Strange ways
This time of ours
There's no meaning
For this to happen
Strange days
It seems so far
Used to be
Everything was falling
Right in place
Where it all would be
So those changes
I sometimes wonder
Could I get back
Where we used to be
Strange days
That's coming upon us
Strange ways
This time of ours
There's no meaning
For this to happen
Strange days
It seems so far
There's no meaning
For it to happen
Strange days
It seems so far
Strange days
It seems so far

Cherry Street (J.J. Cale)

Down on Cherry Street
All the girls are looking fine
Down on Cherry Street
All the girls are looking fine
When they put their hands in your pocket
They ain't feeling for no dime
Down on Cherry Avenue
It's a paradise
Down on Cherry Avenue
Things are looking nice
If you need some kind of loving, boy
Don't think twice
Down on Cherry Avenue
Take it out and move it in
Down on Cherry Avenue
Take it out and move it in
That's where the ladies are
That's where the boys turn into men
Down on Cherry Street
All the girls are looking fine
Down on Cherry Street
All the girls are looking fine
When they put their hands in your pocket
They ain't feeling for no dime

Fonda-Lina (J.J. Cale)

Throwing flowers out her window
And smiling like she can
Fonda-Lina was trying hard to attract the men
With her bosoms hanging over the window sill
It's a story as old as Jesus
Fonda-Lina has a void to fill
Fonda-Lina says "Can you hear me" to the men below
She sighs, "Come to my bedroom, please don't answer no"
With her bosoms hanging over the window sill
It's a story as old as Jesus
Fonda-Lina has a void to fill
She's not impatient, just excited
Expectations, very high
She's just a woman in need of passion
By the men that passes by
With her bosom hanging over the window sill
It's a story as old as Jesus
Fonda-Lina has a void to fill
Fonda-Lina has a void to fill

Leaving In The Morning (J.J. Cale)

Tell ol' Jesse he can have my guitar
Tell ol' Bob he can have my dog
Tell ol' Frank he's welcome to it
If he thinks he wants my job
Tell everybody they can have my woman
They're gonna have her anyway
I'm leaving in the morning
And I won't be back as well
If you see miss Sally Walker
Tell her I said hello
If you see them fools shooting pool
Tell 'em I had to go
They can have all my tomorrows
Give 'em my watch and chain
I'm leaving in the morning
And I won't be back again
If ol' Jake he wants my Harley
Tell him to take the ride
If you know someone that's on the run
And needs a place to hide
They can have the key to my door
It's all I got to my name
I'm leaving in the morning
And I won't be back again
I'm leaving in the morning
And I won't be back again

Oh Mary (J.J. Cale)

Did you hear about Mary she's looking for a brand new man
Did you hear about Mary she's looking for a brand new man
I'm gonna try to catch her
I'm gonna try to catch her when I can
Now Mary's old man just wouldn't treat Mary right
Now Mary's old man just wouldn't treat Mary right
When she got up in the morning he'd danced around all night
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man
Oh Mary
One chance if I can
Did you hear about Mary she's as fine as she can be
She's looking for a man
And I hope it's me
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man
Now Mary's real cool she kinda plays it hard to get
Now Mary's real cool she kinda plays it hard to get
If I could get one chance with Mary she won't regret it
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man
Oh Mary
One chance if I can
Did you hear about Mary she's as fine as she can be
She's looking for a man
And I hope it's me
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man
Oh Mary
One chance if I can
Did you hear about Mary she's as fine as she can be
She's looking for a man
And I hope it's me
Oh Mary
Let me be your loving man

Old Friend (J.J. Cale)

How you been
It would be so nice to see you
My old friend
What's been going on
Are you still singing that same old song
Has your days been treating you well
Are the nights still cold as hell
It would be so nice to hear from you again
My old friend
I hear all the old folks are gone
I guess we're the ones now
That's the way it goes
Those crowded days are behind us now
May your backside catch the wind
May you have many more days to spend
I'd like to see you again
My old friend
We always knew those days would forever last
And all those friends we had would never pass
But they did and the numbers grow small
For a time we had it all
I'd like to see you again sometime
I'll try to call
My old friend
May your backside catch the wind
May you have many more days to spend
I'd like to see you again
My old friend

Roll On (J.J. Cale)

If the sun don't shine this evening
And the rain is falling down
Don't grieve, just 'cause it's cloudy out
Come on down to the corner
We're having a party there
You can dance naked
Nobody really cares
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Well if your mind is heavy laden
And your thoughts keep getting you down
Don't you worry honey
We'll all right anytime
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
We can play just a little bit of ragtime
Kick up some rythm and blues
What you call it, boogie woogie
You can dance off your shoes
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Well there ain't nothing to it, ain't nothing to it
Ain't nothing to it at all
Just a little bit of rythm and blues, and rock 'n roll
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
I think what we need is a drummer
I think what we need is a beat
Can't stand still
You gotta move your feet
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on
Roll on, just keep rolling on

Bring Down The Curtain (J.J. Cale)

Bring down the curtain
It's all the show tonight
It's dark outside
Soon be light
Enough is enough
Can't do it no more
Bring down the curtain
Close the door
Sometime you do
Sometime you don't
Sometime you will
And sometime you won't
Sometimes it's better to leave it alone
Slow it down easy and let it be gone, gone, gone
Bring down the curtain
Keeping moving on
Say what you want, it's something else again
No matter what you say, it will come to an end
Enough is enough
Can't do it no more
Bring down the curtain
Bring down the curtain
Bring down the curtain
Close the door
