Midnight Rain

soundclip


by Jon Tiven / Roger Reale
recording 1998

from Heavy Love (Silertone/Jive 41632), copyright notice

I was standin' at the station,
ten to midnight in the rain
I was mindin' my own bus'ness,
waiting for that midnight train

Nobody in sight, starin' at my shoes,
I took out my paper to find me some good news
Mindin' my own bus'ness,
when the ticket man calls my name
Yeah, yeah, babe

There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line

So I say, "If it ain't too much trouble,
when's the local out of town?"
His reply: "Two a.m."
If I'm leavin' local-bound

I can catch it in forty minutes,
if I want to grab the express
But the local trains are hard to come by,
this time of night, more or less
Listen, said

There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line

So I stood for forty minutes,
it was raining and it was cold
When the express rolled down the track,
I did not care where it was gonna go
Yeah, yeah

He said
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line

No Lie


by Buddy Guy
recording February 8th 1963, Chiacgo, Illinois

from I Was Walking Through The Woods (MCA CHD-9315), copyright notice

I know you're getting sick and tired of me baby, this that I can plainly see
But deep from the bottom of my heart, baby, I know, you're hurting me
But just as sure, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie

I'd rather fight a bear, baby, jump down in a lions den
Than to hear you keep on telling me baby that this is the end
But just as sure, baby, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie

(Alright! Have mercy baby! Yes, yes, yes)

Yes, just look how you're doing me, baby, since1 you got up on your feet
You're going away to leave me, baby, I got this ...2 without no meat
But just as sure, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie

Oh yeah, baby
Somebody got to help me

recording 1993

from Feels Like Rain (Silvertine 41498), copyright notice

My baby's a superstar, she's in a class out just by herself
I said my baby's a superstar, she's in a class out here by herself
You know if the good Lord made anything better, he must a kept it for himself

I was talking to a blind man, I was talkin' to a blind man the other night
Talking to a blind man, talkin' to a blind man the other night
He said "Every woman you talkin' about Buddy", he said "Hmm man what a sight"

He said "That woman man she's something, she's hot"
He said "That woman man she's like something, you never seen"
She say's she should be on centerfold of the Playboy Magazine

My baby is a superstar, she's in a class by herself
I said my, my baby's a superstar, she's in a class by herself
You know if the good Lord made anything else better, he got to have, held it for himself

My baby's a superstar, and I love her like I do my guitar
My baby's a superstar, and I love her like I do my guitar
I don't care what they say about another woman, I don't care who she are

by Muddy Waters

I'm say'n something to you,

Nothing I can do to please her,
I'm just try'n to make this little woman feel satisfied

I'm say'n something to you,
and I don't care if you get mad
You're 'bout the cutest little woman that I'll ever had
She's nineteen years old,

Nothing I can do to please her, oh no,
I'm just try'n to make this little woman feel satisfied

I'm say'n something to you,
and I don't care how you feel
You just don't realize,

She's nineteen years old,
and she got ways just like a baby child
Nothing I can do to please her,
I'm just try'n to make this little woman feel satisfied

I can't ask her where she's going,
she tells me where she's been
She'll start a conversation,

You know she, she's nineteen years old and she got ways just like a baby child
Nothing I can do to please her,
whoa, Lord I'm just try'n to make this little woman feel satisfied

Some Kind Of Wonderful

soundclip


by J. Ellison
recording 1993

from Feels Like Rain (Silvertine 41498), copyright notice

I don't need a whole lots of money
I don't need a big fine car
I got everything that a man could ever want
I got more than I could ask for

Yeah , yeah
And I don't have to run around
I don't have to stay out all night
'Cause I got a sweet, sweet loving woman
And she knows just how to treat me right

My baby she's all right
My baby she's clean out of sight
Don't you know she's a some kind of wonderful
Yes she is, some kind of wonderful

Now hold it Buddy's gonna tell you one more thing

And when she holds in her arms
She sets my soul on fire (sets my soul on fire)
Lord when my baby kisses me people
My heart becomes filled with desire

When she wraps her loving arms around me
Almost drives me out of my mind
I get funny little feelings inside of me
Chills run up and down my spine

My baby she's all right
My baby she's a clean out of sight
Don't you know she's a some kind of wonderful
Yes she is, some kind of wonderful

Now hold it let me tell you one more thing

Tell me is there anybody
That's got a sweet little woman like mine
There's got to be somebody
That's got a sweet little woman like mine

Now tell me
Can I get a witness (Can I get a witness can I get a witness)
Got to get a witness (Can I get a witness)
Can I get a witness

I wanna talk about my baby (Some kind of wonderful)
Talkin' about my baby (Some kind of wonderful)
Talkin' about my baby (Some kind of wonderful)
Talkin' about my baby (Some kind of wonderful)

She's everything I need
So much more than a man can want
Some kind of wonderful
In her high heeled shoes

Oh how I'm suffering, in my mind
Whoa, you keep me worryin', Lord all the time
I try to smile but my friends all leave
But nothin I could do to ease, my suffering mind

Hurt me so bad, to be losing the one I love
I cry, I cry, I cry and pray, to the good Lord up above
But where can I find, someone that could ease Lord, my sufferin' mind

So if I have any witness, I know that you will find
That life means nothing to you baby, Lord when you have a worried mind
So forgive me for what I do, 'Cause I guess I just have to live on
With a sufferin' mind
Oh, yeah

Then start all over, and win again
I come up hard, but that's okay
'Cause trouble man
Don't get in my way

I know some places and I've seen some faces
I've got good connections they dig in my directions
What people say that's okay
They don't bother me Whoo
Ready to make it, don't fool with no women
Don't care 'bout no trouble got myself together
I feel a kind of protection is all around me

This I know baby

I come up hard baby, but now I'm fine

recording 1991

from Damn Right, I've Got the Blues (Silvertone 1462-2-J), copyright notice

Well I had a job, but I got laid off
I had a heart but it got too soft
I had a girlfriend and she lied
I had a wife but my wife she died

One too many drinks about an hour ago
All I want now's just one more
And when it hit, a baby I don't care
Where (where)
Where (where)
Where (where)
Oh where

Where is the next one comin' from
Where is the next one comin' from

Some folks they say there's just one thing (where is the next one comin' from)
Gonna make 'em dance and gonna make 'em sing (where is the next one comin' from)
Had a little o that and had a little of this (where is the next one comin' from)
Well I checked 'em all off 'a my list (where is the next one comin' from)

All I know is don't get enough
All I get is this old rough stuff
But when I do oh baby, I don't care
Where (where)
Where (where)
Where (where)
Oh where
Where is the next one comin' from
Where is the next one comin' from

I want more, gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme
Oh yeah I want more, oh oh yeah

(where is the one comin' from)
(where is the one comin' from)
(where is the one comin' from)

All I want is my belly full (where is the next one comin' from)
It's a natural thing for an animal (where is the next one comin' from)
Well I'm tired all of that give and take (where is the next one comin' from)

About all I got was a bellyache
And once a kid has come to town
He talked like a fool and he dressed like a clown
Only love could have put him down

Where (where)
Where (where)
Where (where)
Oh where

Where is the next one comin' from
Where is the next one comin' from

Where Oh, where huh (where is the next one comin' from)
Got to know , got to know, got to know, got to know about the next one, yeah
