29 Ways


by Willie Dixon
recording of 1997

from Journey On (Minor 84172), copyright notice

I got 29 ways to make it to my baby's door
If she needs me bad, I can find about 2 or 3 more

One through the basement, two down the hall
When the going gets tough, I got a hole in the wall
29 ways to make it to my baby's door
If she needs me bad, I can find about 2 or 3 more

I can come through the chimney, like Santa Claus
Go through the window, and that ain't all
A lot of good ways, I don't want you to know
I even got a hole in the bedroom-floor
29 ways ...
To my lovely baby's door
One, two, many a-more

I got a way through the closet, behind her clothes
A way through the attic, that no one knows
A masterkey, to fit any lock
A hidden door behind grandfather's clock
29 ways ...
To my lovely baby's door
One, two, many a-more

All The Good Times


traditional
recording of 1982

from Hans Theessink & Gerry Lockran Cushioned For A Soft Ride Inside (Autogram), copyright notice

All the good times 're past 'n gone
All the good times 're over
All the good times 're past 'n gone
Little darling don't you weep no more

Have you seen that turtle-dove
Flyin' from pine to pine
It seems to mourn for it's own true love
Just like I mourn for mine

All the good times ...

I'd wish to the lord I'd never been born
Or 'd died when I was young
I wished that I'd never seen your face
Nor heard your lying tongue

All the good times ...

Automobile

from Lifeline (Blue Groove BG-9020), copyright notice

Take me for a ride in your brand new automobile
Eyes on the line, both hands steady at the wheel

You're the most powerful driver that I've ever seen
Run on dynamite instead of gasoline
The way you flash the lights
The way you hold the wheel
Keep on rollin' baby
I like the way it feels

Eat up the road
Put the hammer down
Keep on rolling baby
We'll be riding till the break of dawn

Let me ride, ride, ride in that automobile
Eyes on the line, both hands steady at the wheel

from Baby Wants To Boogie & Blue Grooves From Vienna (a 50th birthday celebration), copyright notice

Baby where you going to, with your red shoes on?
You been here such a short time, you been gone so long

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll
Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll

Baby where you going to, in your dress so fine?
Won't you stay another while and give me some of your time

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll
Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll

You look like an angel, you make my heart skip a beat
The way you move your body, Babe, knocks me off my feet

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll
Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll

Poached eggs, scrambled eggs, in the house on the hill
Drinks and music, 'til you had your fill

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll
Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll

Baby where you going to, with your red shoes on ?
You been here such a short time, you been gone so long

Baby wants to boogie, daddy wants to rock'n'roll

Big Bill's Guitar

 

by Hans Theessink
recording of 1994 resp. 1998

from Hard Road Blues (Minor 801047) & Ratzenbeck, Theessink, Langer RTL3, Gitarre x 3, copyright notice

The first time I heard the blues
Some thirty years ago
The first time I heard Big Bill Broonzy
On late-night radio
A total revelation
I was spellbound
Just a white boy lost in the blues
He moved me with his sound

Echoes from another world
Fingers dancing on the strings
One voice and one guitar
How that man could sing
"Just a dream"
"Black, brown and white"
True sounds full of emotion
Sent shivers up and down my spine

Hooked on blues
And Big Bill is to blame
Since that night, his music moved me
My life ain't been the same

I'm flying cross the ocean
To bury a friend of mine
Still can't accept the bitter truth
Memories keep coming to my mind
Once he spoke of bluesmen that he knew
And took me in his car
Showed me an old 000-28 Martin flattop
Used to be Big Bill's guitar

She's in Chicago, old town school of folk music
In a closet, 'hind a door
Since Big Bill's dead and gone
She don't raise her voice no more
I felt a strange sensation
When I first touched those strings
Somehow I still could sense the hands
That used to make this guitar ring

Hooked on blues ...

Blind Willie, he was a blind man
Blind Willie, he was a blind man
Didn't have no eyesight, power in his hands

Beatup Stella, big 12-string guitar
Beatup Stella, big 12-string guitar
Hot shot Willie, one-man orchestra

Pocketknife, slidin' up 'n down the strings
Pocketknife, slidin' up 'n down the strings
Broke down engine, how that man could sing

Atlanta Georgia, travellin' through the southern land
Atlanta Georgia, travellin' through the southern land
Ruthy Kate leading Willie by the hand

Blind Willie, he was a blind man
Hot shot Willie, he was a blind man
Didn't have no eyesight, power in his hands

Bloodsucker Blues

 

by Hans Theessink
recording of 1998

from Lifeline (Blue Groove BG-9020), copyright notice

You’re a greedy lowlife
You’ve been sucking my blood
Like a hole in the ground
That never fills up
Beat it boy, get your ugly self
Out of that door
I’ve had enough of your action
I don’t want you messin' round no more

I used to call you friend
And you called me Buddy
‘til I found out
That your thoughts were dark and muddy
You were tryin’ to take advantage
When you thought I was weak
But I ain’t Jesus Christ
I won’t turn the other cheek

I’m not looking for revenge
I swear If I did
I’d send you a doll
With pins in it
But don’t you never ever ever
Play your dirty tricks on me again
'Cause I swear I’d kill you
I’d strangle you with my own hands

Bluesdoctor

from Call Me (Deluge DEL-D-3006), copyright notice

Your mind is troubled, you feel lowdown
Looking for help, can't be found
Here's a number, call anytime
Get the bluesdoctor, on the line

Bluesdoctor, he knows just what you need
Bluesdoctor, puts you back on your feet
With his down home rhythm he'll soothe your soul
Make you wanna shuffle, wanna rock 'n roll

If you're sick, you can be sure
Bluesdoctor, got the cure
Down in Mississippi, delta land
He's the blues healer, he's the boogie man

Bluesdoctor ...

Blue note potion, you will feel allright
Stomp your feet, dance all night
Chicago to Paris, whole world 'round
Ain't no cure like that boogie-sound

Bourgeois Blues

 

by Huddy "Leadbelly" Ledbetter
recording of 1997

from Journey On (Minor 84172), copyright notice

Come along people, listen to me
Don't try to find no home in Washington DC
Lord it's a bourgeois town, it's a bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
I'm gonna spread the news all around

Me and Martha were standing downstairs
Bossman said "Don't want no colored people here"
Lord it's a bourgeois town ...

Home of the brave, land of the free
I don't want to be mistreated by no bourgeoisie
Lord it's a bourgeois town ...

White folks in Washington they do know how
Throw a man a nickel just to see him bow
Lord it's a bourgeois town ...

Come along people, listen to me
Don't try to find no home in Washington DC
Lord it's a bourgeois town ...

Breaking Down The Henhouse

I've got a sugar babe 'cross the river
Big black river's deep and wide
Some day soon I'll go and see her
'Way over on the other side

I've got a sugar babe down the highway
Takes a travel of a day 'n night
Some day soon I'll go and see her
'Cause she is my heart's delight

Cajun Boogie


by Hans Theessink
recording of 1998

from Blue Grooves From Vienna (a 50th birthday celebration), copyright notice

Come on baby come along with me
Down to the bayou1 country
To the swamplands where the cajuns2 go
Do the zydeco3

Alligator jumps around
Wags his tail to the squeeze-box sound
There's a fish-fry and there's hot gumbo4
Come on baby let's go

Tune up the fiddle, roisin' up the bow
Listen to the fiddle of Old Man Moe
Sends a tune up to the sky
Watch them bowhairs fly

Alligator jumps around ...

There's Old Ray and black-eyed Susie
Rockin' to the beat of a Cajun boogie
Dancin' the two-step and the fais dodo5
Come on baby let's go

Alligator jumps around ...

When darkness lies heavy, the night is too long
You need a shoulder, you can lean on
Call me, call me

The words of a lovesong are hurting your soul
Your lover has left you standing out in the cold
Call me, call me

I can't bring you the rainbow
Promise you silver nor gold
Oh but darling, I can reach out a hand to hold

You can't tell your visions from reality
Like a clown that keeps laughing to hide all his tears
Call me, call me

You're walking a highway that got no return
Ain't no way back 'cause your bridges are burnt
Call me, call me

You can count on me, call me
You can count on me, call me
You can call me

You feel like a singer who's lost all his songs
A sailor that's been out upon the ocean too long
Call me, call me

The dreams that you dream can't pull you through
Disillusion keeps following you
Call me, call me

Cottonfields

 

traditional, new lyrics and music by Gerry Lockran
recording of 1982

from Hans Theessink & Gerry Lockran Cushioned For A Soft Ride Inside (Autogram), copyright notice

When I was just a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle
In them old cottonfields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texicana
In them old cottonfields back home

Well when them cotton folks get rockin'
We don't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texicana
In them old cottonfields back home

When Jess 'n I were just about knee high
'N our daddy's corn was ridin' mighty high
In them sweet old cottonfields back home
Mama would pray to the lord to save our cattle
'N get the mandolin down 'n make the chickens scuttle
In them old cottonfields back home

Well when them cotton folks get rockin' ...

When Jake 'n Jonas was drinkin' whiskey
We hit on the road up to Tennessee
'N leave them old cottonfields back home
But mama would wring her hands 'n start a-cryin'
Sayin' her boys wouldn't leave their mother dyin'
In them old cottonfields back home
"No way Mama ..."

Well when them cotton folks get rockin'

(spoken: Then mama would take the mandolin down 'n start
a-playing and a-dancing, playing just like this)

You don't miss your mama, till the day she's gonna die

Get on the bus, head for the road
Watch out for those highway signs
Got a woman waiting down the line
At the brighter side of dawn
Ain’t nobody gonna stop us now
Burn the rubber, just keep goin’

We’re going home, we’re going home, going home

I love my music and the life I live
I guess I’m quite a lucky guy
Sixty shows in sixty days
Too many hellos, too many goodbyes
The boys in the band are happy now
They know we’re homeward bound
Got our motor humming and a straight long road
Driver put that hammer down

I love my woman and she loves me
Long distance love for too much time
But I gotta sing and I gotta play
And sometimes leave that girl behind
I feel my heart beat stronger now
Got a fire in my soul
Ain’t nobody gonna stop us now
Burn the rubber, just keep goin’

I've eaten with my hands
I've used a silver spoon

I've wined in diners
And I've dined with queens
But if it comes to cooking
You're the one for me

Do some homecooking baby

Just a taste from your starter
Gives me appetite
Every bite from that main-dish
Outasight!

Do some homecooking baby

I'm crazy 'bout that
Jelly-roll
I like the way you
Roll your dough

Keep me some dessert baby
Soft 'n sweet
The best in the world
Just what I like to eat

Do some homecooking baby
