Splashdown Two (Relix 2080) & The Best of Hot Tuna (RCA 67692), copyright notice

Well now give me my pistol man and three round balls
I'm gonna shoot everybody that I don't like at all
Like at all, Like at all
Like at all, Like at all

Gotta .38 special man and .45 frame
You know the thing don't miss 'cause I got dead aim
Got dead aim, got dead aim
Got dead aim, got dead aim

Well the world is a drag and my friends can't vote
Gonna make me a connection and score some dope
Go get high, go get high
Go get high, go get high

Babe I want you to know, babe I want you to know
That little bit you been doin', Lord, babe don't you do it no more

Babe I want you to know, babe I want you to know

'Cause I'm a stranger here just got in your town
Ain't none of these women gonna turn me down
I'm cryin' baby, oh honey

Babe I want you to understand, babe I want you to understand
I don't mean you no good, please get you another man

Babe I want you to understand, babe I want you to understand
I don't mean you no good, please get you another man

Well candyman said been here and gone

Wish I was in New Orleans sittin' on a candy stand

Well candyman said salty dog

Well candyman said salty dog
I can't be your salty dog and I won't be your candyman

Run to the corner get the baby some beer
Run to the corner get the baby some beer
Run to the corner get the baby some beer
Wish I was in New Orleans sittin' on a candy stand

Well candyman said been here and gone
Well candyman said been here and gone
Candyman said been here and gone
Wish I was in New Orleans sittin' on a candy stand

Death Don't Have No Mercy

soundclip


by rev. Gary Davis
recording of 19

from Splashdown Two (Relix 2080), copyright notice

Well now death don't have no mercy in this land
Well now death don't have no mercy in this land
He'll come to your house and he won't stay long
Look 'round the room one of your family will be gone
Death don't have no mercy in this land

Death will leave you standin' and cryin' in this land
Death will leave you standin' and cryin' in this land
He'll come to your house and he won't stay long
Look 'round the room one of your family will be gone
Death don't have no mercy in this land

Well death don't give you time to get ready in this land
Well death don't give you time to get ready in this land
He'll come to your house and he won't stay long
Look 'round the room one of your mama will be gone
Death don't have no mercy in this land

Well now death don't have no mercy in this land
Well now death don't have no mercy in this land
He'll come to your house and he won't stay long
Look 'round the room one of your family will be gone
Death don't have no mercy in this land

Genesis


by Jorma Kaukonen
recording of 19

from The Best of Hot Tuna (RCA 67692), copyright notice

The time has come for us to pause
and think of living as it was
Into the future we must pass

And I'd like to go with you-hoo
And I'd like to go with you-hoo

You say I'm harder than a wall
A marble shaft about to fall
I loved you dearer than them all aw-hall

And I'd like to go with you-hoo
And I'd like to go with you-hoo

And as we come out into day
The sky's blue has turned to grey
I might have not been here to say say-hay

Though I'm feelin' you inside
Still I'm rollin' with the tide
I'd like to see it be an open ri hide

Goin' along with you
Goin' along with you

And as we came out into view
There I found myself with you
And breathing felt like something new new-hoo

Goin' along with you
Goin' along with you

Hesitation Blues

soundclip


Traditional
recording of 19

from The Best of Hot Tuna (RCA 67692), copyright notice

Well a nickel is a nickel and a dime is a dime
I need a new gal she won't mind, tell me
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hesitate

Well, the eagle on the dollar says "in God we trust"
You say you want a man, I wanna see that dollar first, tell me
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hesitate

If the river was whiskey, and I was a duck
You know I'd swim to the bottom, Lord, an' never come up, tell me
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hesitate

Rocks in the ocean, baby, fish in the sea
Knows you mean the world to me, tell me
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hesitate

Well, got hesitation stockings got them hesitatin' shoes
Lord, I got them Hesitatin' Blues, tell me
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hesitate
Said, can I get you now, how long must I hesitate?

I Am The Light Of This World

soundclip


by rev. Gary Davis
recording of 19

from Splashdown Two (Relix 2080), copyright notice

Just as long as I'm in this world I am the light of this world
Just as long as I'm in this world I am the light of this world
Just as long as I'm in this world I am the light of this world
Just as long as I'm in this world I am the light of this world

Oh you don't believe in Jesus and not a word he said
When he come way on down to Lazarus grave and raise him from the dead

I've got fiery fingers and I've got fiery hands
And when I get up in heaven gonna join in that fiery band

Prayer is the key to heaven and faith unlocks the door
That's why God give me the key to carry wherever I go

I know I got religion I know I ain't ashamed
For the Holy Ghost is my witness, and the angels done signed my name

Didn't they take John The Baptist and put him in a kettle of oil
God got in there with him and they tell me the oil didn't boil

I Know You Rider

soundclip


Traditional
recording of 19

from Splashdown Two (Relix 2080) & The Best of Hot Tuna (RCA 67692), copyright notice

I know you rider gonna miss me when I'm gone
I know you rider gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gonna miss your baby from rollin' in your arms

Sun's gonna shine on my back door some day
Sun's gonna shine on my back door some day
And the wind's gonna rise up and blow my blues away

I wish I was a headlight on a northbound train
I wish I was a headlight on a northbound train
I'd shine my headlight through the cool Colorado rain

Lovin' you baby's 'bout as easy as rollin' off a log
Lovin' you baby's 'bout as easy as rollin' off a log
I'll be your daddy but I just won't be your dog

I'll Be Alright Someday


by Jorma Kaukonen
recording of 1985

from Magic (Relix RRCD-2007), copyright notice

I'll be alright, I'll be alright
I'll be alright someday
Deep in my heart, I do believe, that I'll be alright someday

When trouble comes, I'll pay no mind
I'll be alright someday
Deep in my heart, I do believe, that I'll be alright someday

I'll be alright, I'll be alright
I'll be alright someday
Deep in my heart, I do believe, that I'll be alright someday

from Splashdown Two (Relix 2080) & The Best of Hot Tuna (RCA 67692), copyright notice

Well now keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away
Keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away
Here you come mama big as sin, tell what you been doin' by the shape you're in
So keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away

If you been doin' what I think you been doin' baby, can't do that 'round here
You been doin' what I think you been doin' baby, can't do that 'round here
Here you come mam big as hell, tell what you been doin' by way you smell
So keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away

What's that smell like fish pretty baby, I really would like to know
Tell me What's that smell like fish oh mama, I really would like to know
That ain't puddin' baby ain't no pie, it's the stuff that I got you by
So keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away

Now yes you gotta leave this mornin', get your yas yas outta my door
Now yes you gotta leave this mornin', get your yas yas outta my door
Ashes to ashes mama, dust to dust, what-cha gonna do when that damn thing rusts
So keep on truckin' mama, truckin' my blues away

Well mother don't you stop prayin'

Keep our lamps trimmed and burning
For our race is almost run

Well Lord said search my heart
Oh Lord now search my heart

When I'm in misery said search my heart, so I'll know what's right and what's wrong

Well Lord said search my heart
Oh Lord now search my heart
Well said search my heart, so I'll know what's right and what's wrong
