All Along The Watchtower


by Bob Dylan
recording of 19
from,
copyright notice


"There must be some way out of here",
said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief
Businessmen they drink my wine, plowman dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth"

"No need to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"There are many here among us who think that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that, and that is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late"

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view,
while all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl

Angel

Angel came down,
from heaven yesterday
Stayed with me just long enough,
to rescue me

And she told me a story yesterday;
about the sweet love,
between the moon and the deep blue sea

Then she spread her wings high over me
She said,"I'll come back again to see you tomorrow"

And I said fly on, my sweet angel.
Fly on through the sky
Fly on, my sweet angel
Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side

Sure enough,
this woman came home to me
Silver wings silhouetted against a child's sunrise

And my angel,
she said unto me,
"Today is the day for you to rise"
Take my hand, you're gonna be my mind,
and she took me high over yonder

And I said fly on, my sweet angel
Fly on through the sky
Fly on, my sweet angel
Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side

Angel Eyes

soundclip

recording of 1988
from
See The Light (Arista ARCD-8553), copyright notice


Girl, you're looking fine tonight,
and every guy has got you in his sights
What you're doing with a clown like me,
is surely one of life's little mysteries

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Well, I'm the guy who never learned to dance,
never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough,
I could look but I could never touch

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Don't anyone wake me,
if it's just a dream
'Cause she's the best thing,
that's ever happened to me

All you fellows, you can look all you like,
but this girl, you see, she's leavin' here with me tonight

There's just one more thing that I have to know,
if this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be something only you can see,
'cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Cover To Cover (Arista 74321-23888), copyright notice


Thinkin' bout the times you drove in my car
Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far
And I'm thinkin' bout the love that you laid on my table

I told you not to wander round in the dark
I told you bout the swans that they live in the park
And I told you 'bout a kid now he's married to Mable

Yes, I told you bout the life goes up & down
Don't you notice how the wheel goes round?
And you better pick yourself up off the ground
Before they bring the curtain down,
yes, before they bring the curtain down, whoooa

Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you
She didn't have the time to wait in the queue
She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle

I done run into my baby,
and finally found my old blue jeans
Well, I done ran into my baby,
and finally found my old blue jeans

I knew they was mine,
by the oil and the gasoline, yeah

If I ever get back my blue jeans,
well how happy could one man be?
I said, uh, if I ever get back my blue jeans,
well, how happy can one man be?
'Cause when I get back those blue jeans,
yeah, you know my baby,
will bring em home to me
Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Bulletproof


by Steven Seagal / Todd Smallwood
recording of 1996
from,
copyright notice


She plays rough
She ain't ready
There ain't a thing,
in this world to prove

She's got a needle and a powder people,
to keep her steady
Life's gonna teach her a thing or two
Talk is cheap
So listen up
You're in too deep
Enough is enough

Bulletproof
It's bad news
You give up
Like it's nothing to lose
Bulletproof
It's no use
You better face the truth
You ain't bulletproof

In my mind
She's still smokin'
Life's too painful
She gets straight
No lie
I ain't jokin'
It's gonna hit you like a hurricane

Talk is cheap
It can't be worse
Keep it up
You're gonna leave in a hearse

Bulletproof
It's bad news
You give up
Like it's nothing to lose
Bulletproof
It's no use
You better face the truth
You ain't bulletproof

Look at the people
There's so much lust
You got everything
But still it's a bust

I see the sun
You see the rain
I see the hope
And you see the pain

Bulletproof
It's bad news
You give up
Like it's nothing to lose
Bulletproof
It's no use
You better face the truth
You ain't bulletproof

Confidence Man

soundclip


by John Hiatt
recording of 1988
from
See The Light (Arista ARCD-8553), copyright notice


Well, I lost you at the border,
when you crossed it
Had your number, baby,
but I lost it
I know your love,
was just a flimflam

Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
cause I'm a confidence man

I can talk old ladies,
out of all of their money
I can talk young girls,
into calling me honey
You can talk all you want, baby,
but I got fast hands

I know your mother
Taught you how to bake a pie,
and read a book
Your daddy
Taught you how to tell a lie,
and not get shook

Let me tell you somethin', baby
You better learn,
If you're gonna con the con man,
You're liable to get burned

Now, now, now,
We were stretched out on the floor, baby,
it's all elastic
But you stretched it too tight,
and it snapped like plastic,
and the pieces went flying across the badlands.

Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.

Now, maybe Chicago,
is where you're bound
But love is a cheap perfume,
it hangs around
And you roll the dice,
now let the bet stand

Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.
Well, you can't pull the wool over me,
'cause I'm a confidence man.

Cruel Little Number

soundclip


by Jeff Healey / Rockman / Stephen / Marsh / Walkert
recording of 1992
from
Feel This (Arista 18706-2), copyright notice


Well she's got to be a 20,
on a scale of 10
Walking on an edge,
that's razor thin
One in a million,
from her head to her toes
A hole in her heart,
as the next man's money goes

She's a cruel little number,
wild little weed
Momma's little princess,
daddy's bad seed
Mind of a maniac,
she's breaking all the rules
Cruel little number,
why do you have to be so cruel

She ain't tight with the ladies
She don't kiss and tell
She want a black Mercedes 500 SEL
She knows the scent of a dollar
Don't want a check in the mail
She blew the price of love
Right off the end of the scale

She's a cruel little number,
wild little weed
Momma's little princess,
daddy's bad seed
Mind of a maniac,
she's breaking all the rules
Cruel little number,
why do you have to be so cruel

Her heart can't be broken,
'cause it's stainless steel
You can beg, you can bargain,
but she's never going to cut you a deal

She's a cruel little number,
wild little weed
Momma's little princess,
daddy's bad seed
Mind of a maniac,
she's breaking all the rules
Cruel little number,
why do you have to be so cruel

Don't Let Your Chance Go By

from
See The Light (Arista ARCD-8553), copyright notice


Well, in case you haven't noticed,
the girl's in love with you
But you just seem to ignore her,
tell me what you tryin' to do

Instead of looking the other way,
you outta give her the eye
'Cause if she wants to love you,
don't let your chance go by

Well, now look at her, man,
she got blue eyes and long blonde hair
And you know pretty girls like that,
you just don't see everywhere

Yeah, start cashin' in on your good fortune, boy
Go on and give her a try
'Cause if she wants to love you,
don't let your chance go by

Well, I've known you for a long time,
you know I don't give no jive
And I know she's got some loving,
that'll help keep you alive

If you turn that poor little girl down,
you're gonna make her cry
Because if she wants to love you,
don't let your chance go by

Yeah, if she wants to love you, don't let your chance go by,
Whoa!
Yeah, she wants to love you, don't let your chance go by
I say it again, don't let your chance go by
One more time!
Don't let your chance go by

Evil And Here To Stay

soundclip


by Jeff Healey / Rockman / Stephen
recording of 1992
from
Feel This (Arista 18706-2), copyright notice


I was born at midnight,
I was up running by dawn
Ain't nobody can stop me now,
'cause I was out the door and gone
Everybody knows you better,
try and keep outta my way
Because some people come and go,
but I'm evil and I'm here to stay

You know I can kill a man,
not even care
I can make love to you little girl,
till she just can't go nowhere
That's the way I live,
just fighting and lovin' day to day
You know some people come and go,
but I'm evil and I'm here to stay

Well get me a one way ticket,
on that road to hell
You ever try to cross me, man,
you ain't gonna live to tell
No, no you better listen to what I say
You know some people come and go,
but I'm evil and I'm here to stay

I said some people come and go,
but I'm evil and I'm here to stay

Well you better not try to cut me down,
'cause I'm evil and I'm here to stay
