Ain't That Lovin' You

soundclip


by D. Malone
recording 1996

from Live! The Real Deal (Silvertone 41543), copyright notice

You build my hopes so high
Didn't let me down so low
It makes no difference baby
I still love you more and more

And every very time you smile
Woman I smile with you
Every time you cry
Woman, you know I cry with you

Now ain't that lovin' you baby
Ain't that lovin' you baby
Lord, ain't that lovin' you

I don't believe
I don't believe you know what I'm talkin' about
I don't believe
I don't believe you know what I'm talkin' about

I'm talkin' about love, love, love
I'm talkin' about love, love, love
I'm talkin' about love, love, love
I'm talkin' about love, love, love

You know I told you baby
I would never let you down
It makes no difference that
I will always be around

You treat me like a schoolboy
And that you know is true
It makes no difference by you
I'll be there with you

Ain't that lovin' you
Ain't that lovin' you baby
Lord, ain't that lovin' you

I don't believe
You know I'm smiling with you
Oh, ain't that loving you baby
You know, that's loving you

recording 1968

from A Man And His Blues (Vanguard VMD-79272), copyright notice

What can a poor man do, you know when the blues keep bothering him around
What can a poor man do, you know when the blues keep bothering him around

Give him a half pint of good liquor, and sit down and drink it all down
You know, sometimes I feel, I feel like drinkin' me some gasoline
You know, sometimes I feel, I feel like drinkin' me some gasoline
Strikin' me a match and blow myself up in steam

I feel I'm gonna move on back down south,
you know where the water tastes like cherry wine
I feel I'm gonna move on back down south,
you know where the water tastes like cherry wine
Because this crap of whiskey and water tastes to me like turpentine

Change in the weather
Something is happening here
Change in the weather
Change in the weather
People walkin' round in fear

Yeah, ah, huh, you better duck and run
Get under cover 'cause a change is come
Storm warnings and it looks like rain
Be nothin' left after the hurricane
There is a jungle it ain't no lie
Look at the people
They got terror in their eyes
Bad wind is comin' it can't be denied
They're runnin' with the dogs
And afraid to die

Change in the weather
Change in the weather
Something is happening here
Change in the weather
Change in the weather
People walkin' round in fear

Aha, you best believe it's true
The levee's1 busted, bad news comin' true
Oh no, there ain't no place to hide
Reach out and pluck you, take you for a ride, yeah
Sheer frustration takin' everything in sight
Won't be no blastin' if we make it through the night
Down on your knees for heaven and pray
But every demon have to have his day

Change in the weather
Change in the weather
Something is happening here
Change in the weather
Change in the weather
People walkin' round in fear

High noon I can't believe my eyes
Wind is ragin' there's a fire in the sky
Ground shakin' everything comin' loose
Run like a coward but it ain't no use
Edge of the river just an ugly scene
People getting pushed, and people gettin' mean
A change is comin; and it's getting' kind of late
There ain't no survivin', there ain't no escape

Change in the weather
Change in the weather
Something is happening here
Change in the weather
Change in the weather
People walkin' round in fear

Come on try
Ah somethin' been happinin' here, yeah

Whoa there's a change
Feel a change comin' on in the weather, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't you tell it
I can't see it comin' Lord , ahah

Got to got to got to
Got to got to got to feel yeah yeah yeah
Open up your eyes and see

We need help in our city, people, we need a lot of help in our town

We need help in our schools, we need a lot of help in our home
We need a lot of help in our schools, we need a lot of help in our home
'Cause, Lord knows, somewhere, somehow, oh, somethings going all wrong
(spoken: Look a-here)

They tried to tear down the high-rise and the laws say that was wrong
(spoken: Look a-here)
Oh, they tried to tear down the high-rise and the laws say that was wrong
They say, "Long as they're killing one another, you just leave'em alone)

We need help in our city, we need a lot of help, people, here in our town
Oh, we need help in our city, and, uh, we need a lot of help, people, in our town
Just bring along that big ball and tear the whole goddamn thing down

from Feels Like Rain (Silvertine 41498), copyright notice

I'm a country man, I was country ever since I come to town
I'm a country man, I was country when I come to town
You know I can look at a milk cow, and I'll tell you how much her butter will come a pound

I'm just green as a pool table, you know I'm twice as square
Green as a pool table, and you know I'm twice as square
I may be a educated fool, but that's something I don't have

I'm a country man, just as country as I can be
I'm a country man, just as country as I can be
You may get me out of the country people but you, never will get the country out of me

I'm green as a pool table, people you know I'm twice as square
Green as a pool table, people you know I'm twice as square
I wanna be a educated fool, but it's something I don't have

I'm a country man, I was country when I come to town
I'm a country man, I was country when I come to town
You know I can look at a milk cow, tell you how much her butter will come a pound

Just a country man, baby, you know I ain't shamed
I'm a country man, baby, you know I ain't shamed
That's why I'm crazy 'bout my guitar, that's why I surely will keep on playing
