My little mamma you're so fine I'll keep you here drinking my wine Now that you know where I'm from, holdin' on won't be long Sun is warm, ice is cool, baby now I'm a fool Fool for you, gimmie time to think It through Love is gone
Journey to the center of my mind and you'll find, nothin' Journey to the center of my soul and you'll know, nothin' Journey to the center of my heart and you'll hear. nothin' A man's only worth what he pays for.
Gold 03:48
Girl, on my mind Girl, I can't find Girl, what to do Girl, I need you Girl, by my side Girl, feelin' fine Girl, what to do Girl, I need you Girl, like I said Girl, in my head Girl, what to do Girl, I need you
Walk On 03:31
Drinkin' with the man, drinkin' when I can, Lord I know I'm no good, I never done what I should Lord I know I'm no good, I never done what I should When I get the booze, baby then I choose I'm in the jam, oh throw me in the can Thrown me down in that can, oh don't you do it again Cause when I get those blues, then I hit the booze And I start to sing, about that love you bring Well I start to sing, about that love you bring Walk On Mumma told her kid, beatin' while she did I'm gonna throw you out, and when she did I'll shout Babe I knew that you could, I never thought that you would Rudy here I come, pass me down that gun I got some things to do, before I think them through I got some things to do, before I think them through Swallow down that wine, makin' me feel fine I got a place to go and a radio I got a place to go and a radio Walk on
Gave my heart to Sue, now I'm wonderin' what to do Cause that fell away, who to say, who indeed But there's a session man inside, face to face with his own kind But now that you're done, where's the fun, in what you play There's a dandy on my mind, I'll remember a good time From a rainy day, back in may, when she was kind But a greedy greedy man, won't commit to his own plan To give away, half a day, with his own child
I heard a stranger callin', he didn't know my name I been' where he'd been and saw what he said to the losers of his game And now it's worth him nothing, as the rain it keeps on fallin' down He lost his time on woman and wine, travellin' through the day His afternoon keeps commin', commin' back with cold Well I rest my eyes and hope to die, to keep from getting old But then I saw what you'd call, livin' like a lair Spare me the change of what you've rearranged, I'll throw it on the fire Cause Maureeny Wishful sung it, he sung it all the time It's a crime, to be bored, with you in mind. I heard a stranger singing, singing all my songs But he missed a rhyme at the end of a line, as I tried to sing along And what do you do with colour, when all you have is blue It covers my bed and all of my walls, I can't think what to do Well hold out your hand, from what I understand you need a place to stay I'd take you back home but my woman is all alone, standin' on the corner And the last time, I saw you, you were standing in the rain It's a shame, to be blamed, for your pain
Morning woke me yesterday and sent me on my way A glass of juice was all I had, and a hug from Dad Son don't worry about the rain, it only kills my pain And take word along the road, about the good I've told I got shot walkin' to work, I asked the gunman why He said he caught me diggin' his dirt, to make my life worth while I spoke the truth that he judged me wrong, he knew it all along Can't you tell I've been workin' the fields, to keep you in my eyes? I think I'll stick to getting robbed, then get another job Cause all my monies turned to rust, and a life of dust They set forth along my trail, but forgot to wail And now their left, diggin' my tomb, but there's still no room I've got one more lie to tell, and that it's served me well Sometimes I feel I could, but I never should I lost faith at the door, come back later and get some more I sent your son down a floor, he had a sin not much like yours Hold me in the sky, I think I'm doin' it wrong
Slow Longer 04:26
A lonely child, walkin' home A lonely man, bottle in hand The bottle, oh the bottle
