Scrawl

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1994

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

Tell me, girl, you love me
Before I lose my mind
Said I was your only
Property divine
Why you did mistreat me
Said its cause you loved me
And now you have involved me
And I'm goin' for the fall
It's common knowledge
It's scrawled on the wall

Said you're feelin' shaky
I believe you catch my drift
And now you're gonna be sneaky
Cause I know you're gonna be sick
Real sick
You gotta do the shuffle
Gotta run all over town
And now its you that's hurtin'
I always knew that you'd go down
You're goin' down
Everyone knows it
It's scrawled on the wall

I know its gonna kill you
You know its gonna ruin you
But I know you're gonna do it
Just sit back and watch me get to it

So now you heed my warnin'
Before you go too deep
You'd better start to cut back
Or you'll suffer the all white sleep
All white sleep
It's gonna get you
All white sleep
It's gonna get you

Go down to that pay phone
And you put in your pager number
Meet your man on the corner
And you give him $40
Take that stuff home
You put it in a spoon
And put it in your vein
You ain't bein' cool
You're just gonna die

Tailspin Headwhack

soundclip

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

For how long has this been goin' on
Let me know before things go wrong
Please tell me, truth I must hear
For I fear a heartbreak is near

You do this, you do that
Everybody can see
While you're gone from my sight
You're dismantling me, don't listen to rumors
'Cause truth comes from you
It's becoming so clear
Please don't let it be true

Hit the streets, ear to the wind
Head is sick and I need my close friend
Forty dollars and a phone number too
Now I'm half way there being so sweet to you

You do this, you do that
Everybody can see
While you're gone from my sight
You're dismantling me, don't listen to rumors
'Cause truth comes from you
It's becoming so clear
Please don't let it be true

Pain is gone and the deal has gone down
Head is straight yeah, and my life's turned around
Won't be long and time catches on
And then your life, your life will be gone

Tailspin headwhack
Don't turn your back
Tailspin headwhack
Don't turn, don't turn your back

Thrill Is Gone

soundclip

by Hawkins
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

Thrill is gone
Oh, the thrill is gone
Thrill is gone, all gone today

Lord, you know I'll go away
And you'll be sorry someday

Free at last
Oh, I'm free at last
From that spell
Oh, I'm free from your spell
Lord, I know you wish me bad
And I wish you well

Thrill is gone
Oh, the thrill is gone
Thrill is gone, all gone today
Thrill is gone, Thrill is gone
Thrill is gone, all gone away

Lord, you know I'll leave
And you'll be sorry someday

Thrill is gone
Oh, the thrill is gone
Thrill is gone, all gone today
Thrill is gone, oh it's gone today
Thrill is gone, all gone today
Lord, you know I will leave
And you'll be sorry someday

Oh, I'm gonna go right now
Don't wanna leave you
I gotta go sometime now
Oh, oh gone
Good God almighty

Walls

soundclip

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1997

from Tailspin Headwhack (Jive 41611), copyright notice

Everywhere you go, every day's a show
And everyday I see for you to be with me
Hold you closer now, look into your eyes
Always let you know
Always let you know I'm trying
When I see you there
All my fears, they fall

*chorus
And then the walls come down
Yeah, they all fall down
I don't know what to do
When my walls fall down

Pull me up to you, take me in your arms
Never let me go, always here by you
I'm crying

And when I run away
It doesn't help my day
So now I run to you, what's a boy to do
Wipe away my tears
Throwing all my fears away
'Cause I do love you
Please just let me stay with you
And when I see you there
All my fears, they fall

*chorus
And if the walls fall down
Hitting all around
I wanna be with you
When the walls come down

Show me what to do
God, I really need you now
Never let me go, I'm always here by you
I'm crying

Beauty where you stood
Your kiss, it shocks me through
Sell my soul, I would
Just to be with you

What Can I Do

by Chris Duarte / John Jordan
recording of 1994

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

Yeah, here I am
What can I do
You got a strange man
Hangin' onto you
Now there I go
Out on the road
You've run up bills
So I've got to make me some dough

What can I do
What can I do
Cause over you
You know that I love you
('Cause) Only you
I'd do anything for you

And now I'm home
A brand new day
And here you come
Askin' me for my pay
I wonder why
You treat me this way
I think I'll lay me head down
And cry all night and day

What can I do
What can I do
Cause over you
You know that I love you
('Cause) Only you
I'd do anything for you

Our life is wrecked
Our love is through
And I am so, so tired
Of cryin' over you
You hurt my head
You've hurt me so
But I love you so much,
I never ask you to go

What can I do
What can I do
Cause over you
You know that I love you
('Cause) Only you
I'd do anything for you

Oh, you know that's true
So, so true
