.32 Blues

soundclip


by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

I'm just here to get that money
Just this favor and it ain't for me honey
So get your man, we'll make this quick
Lord, I see you ain't feeling too slick

You said he'd be back 'bout an hour ago
Oh, you look so bad
I can't hang here no more
Feel that breeze by that back door
Lord, this house is a killing floor

Oh, he swung that bat right at my head
Just one more inch and I'd be dead
So I put him down, then I turned to you
Now I'm looking down the hole of an old .32

My whole life passed before my eyes
Just one look at your dark surprise
Oh, you look so sick
When you pulled that trigger
Lord, I swear I'll walk if I hear that click

Yeah, I walked away and I never looked back
Just desperate souls in a broke down shack
So I walked one mile in my own shoes
Now you know I've got
Oh, I've got these .32 blues

Big-Legged Woman


by Blackwell / Russell
recording of 1994

from Texas Sugar Strat Magic (Jive/Novus/Silvertone 41546), copyright notice

I told you once
Then I told you twice
Big-legged woman
Treat me like ice

Big-legged woman
Short, short mini skirt
'Cause promise me darlin'
You'll never make me feel like dirt

I told you once
Then I told you twice
Big-legged woman go together
Red beans and rice

Big-legged woman
Short, short mini skirt
'Cause promise me darlin'
You'll never make me feel like dirt

Big-legged woman
Big-legged woman
Big-legged woman
Big-legged woman
Promise me, darlin'
You'll never make me feel like dirt

I saw your leg
Then I saw your skirt
Then I saw the color of your hair
Heart jumped down in my shirt

Red head woman
Your short mini skirt, oh
'Cause promise me darlin'
You'll never make me feel like dirt

Oh big-legged woman
'Cause a big-legged woman, yeah
A big-legged woman, so sweet
A big-legged woman
'Cause promise me, darlin'
You'll never make me feel like dirt

Oh yeah, get it on

Borrowed Love


by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1994

from Texas Sugar Strat Magic (Jive/Novus/Silvertone 41546), copyright notice

Well, I sometimes sit and wondered
Often felt misplaced
Tried to figure out
Silly human race
How did we ever get by
How did we ever get by
Although we seem to get on through it
Though we seem there's nothin' to it
All these pack of lies

Well, we are a funny race
And though we never will admit
We're messin' up this world
Never clean up our mess
Ain't that a pity
What are we really made of
'Cause mother earth is gettin' mad
But she's really gettin' sad
'Cause we're on borrowed love

Borrowed love
Ain't even like the real thing
Borrowed love
Ain't even like the real thing
'Cause love is bright as the sun
And it flies like a dove
It's not like borrowed love

I used to know this guy
His head was always in a whirl
Never could commit
To just one nice girl
He had to have plenty
And it caught up to him
Because these girls they pulled the rug
'Cause they could see he was a dud
He was on borrowed love
Just like this

I don't have all the answers
For these problems we face
I never give up on
Silly human race
Because I love you
Honey, for all its worth
So always stick to the line
Stay on borrowed time
And love your mother earth

Borrowed love
Ain't even like the real thing
Borrowed love
Ain't even like the real thing
'Cause love is bright as the sun
And it flies like a dove
It's not like borrowed love

Borrowed love

Catch The Next Line (U.S. release)

soundclip

 

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

I believe, I'm gonna catch the next line
I believe, I'm gonna catch the next line
And your town ain't for me
I'll come back sometime

Might take a plane
And train a bus
Car, bus, I got no fuss
Oh, gonna catch the next line
This town ain't for me
I'll come back some time

Some other time! Some other time!
Some other time! Some other time!
I believe, I'm gonna catch the next line

Come back! Some time
I believe next line back
Don't lie, yes I will
But I'm gonna pack it up and go

Some other time! Some other time!
Some other time! Some other time!
I believe, I'm gonna catch the next line

Gonna catch the next line
I'm gonna catch the next line
I'm gonna catch the next line
Oh, I'm gonna catch the next line
I'm gonna catch the next line
I'm gonna catch it

Cleopatra

soundclip

 

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

You walk around here
Like beauty lasts forever child
You say it's your fortune
The kind that drives the fellas wild
So are you Cleopatra
Your beauty was your one mistake
Look there down below
Power is all yours to take

One day when your beauty is gone
Are you gonna be alone
Cleo!

Been in your tower
Men, they kneel to your name
Attracted to your power
Men today, are all the same

Some day when your beauty is gone
Are you gonna be all alone
Cleo! Cleo!

You walk around here
Like beauty lasts forever child
You say its your fortune
The kind that drives the fellas wild
So are you Cleopatra
Your beauty was your one mistake
Look down at your feet
For I'm the one that they call the snake

One day when your beauty is gone
Are you gonna be all alone
Cleo! Cleo! Oh, Cleo!

Crash (Japanese release only)

 

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

Feeling, feeling kind-a rough
This old road is way too tough
Every mile is another lash
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash

Been up, been up way too long
Anything to sing my song
Lately though, it sounds like trash
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash
Think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm gonna crash!

My time will come, it comes for everyone
My day will pass but I won't be the last

Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash

My time will come, it comes for everyone
My day will pass and I won't be last
Oooh!

Cornfields, they stretch away
Every mile on this wet highway
Thunder ripped, the lightning flashed
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Bright lights, the crowded room
Stage left, well, there stands someone's doom
I feel the slash

Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
Think I'm, think I'm gonna crash!
