3 Sides 2 Every Story

soundclip


by John Mooney / Gary Nicholson
recording of 1996
from
Against the Wall (House Of Blues 87006, Ruf 51416 1389 2), copyright notice

There's three side to every story
Yours mine and the whole darn truth
Three side to every story
Yours mine and the whole darn truth
All these lies alibis tearin' up you and me
There's three sides to every story

I need to know
Where did you stay last night
Honey you been told
I ain't treatin' you right
Jivin' each other talkin' trash
If we don't stop honey we won't last
Honey there's three sides to every story

Where do we go from here
How does our love survive
The future looks so unclear
To the doubtful suspicious minds
Play too long it's a loosin' game
With no hand to hold
No one left to blame
Honey there's three sides to every story

Where do we go from here
How does our love survive
The future looks so unclear
To the doubtful suspicious minds
Play too long it's a loosin' game
With no hand to hold
No one left to blame
Honey there's three sides to every story

Broken Mold

soundclip

Against the Wall (House Of Blues 87006, Ruf 51416 1389 2), copyright notice

Broken mold, broken mold
You were born from a broken mold
Broken mold, broken mold
How you gonna fix it when it broke

It wouldn't be so bad
Not if I'd been told
When I reach this place
Being bought and sold

Make you blood run hot
Make your heart run cold
When you find
You're from a broken mold

Out runnin' in the street
Slippin' out the back
Sweat on your brow
Got knifed in the back

You're the black sheep
Kicked out the fold
When you know
You're from a broken mold

Don't care when you win
Don't matter if you loose
You're broke down mind
Got a very short fuse

You'll feel it when you're young
You'll know It when you're old
Yea, you made
From a broken mold

Broken mold, broken mold
You were born from a broken mold
Broken mold, broken mold
Just can't fix it when it broke

Now the innocent died
On the day I was born
All I ever hear
I didn't mean no harm

You could see it in my eyes
I did what I was told
Because I
Made from a broken mold

Doggone Thing

Well you know
It don't mean a doggone thing
You'll find tomorrow
It sure don't mean a doggone thing

Got a sweet little girl
Give her everything
Hopin' maybe that someday
She'll wear your name
But you know
It don't mean a doggone thing
You'll find tomorrow
It sure don't mean a doggone thing

All that your doin' is wastin' time
All that you can thing about
Might loose your mind
But you know
It don't mean a doggone thing
You'll find tomorrow
It sure don't mean a doggone thing

There ain't no one thing
I know for sure
That's just what I seen baby
And I don't worry 'bout what I heard
But you know
It don't mean a doggone thing
You'll find tomorrow
It sure don't mean a doggone thing

Well it be late on in the evening and I'm out on the outskirts of town
Late on in the evening, I'm out on the outskirts of town
I chews me a seed and I watch that evening sun go down

You know all last night baby, I couldn't sleep the whole night long
I was up walkin' the floor baby, I couldn't sleep the whole night long
I was cryin' for you, I was cryin' for me, I'm the one that done you wrong

Yeah when it's late in the day baby, you're tired, you done had enough
Late in the day baby, you're tired, you done had enough
You know I'll be waitin' baby, dial my number, baby look me up

Child when you're old and gray, you're back is bent your walkin' with a cane
Oh when you're old and gray, you're back is bent your walkin' with a cane
You look back and remember and you know I was your true lovin man

You know my little boy a cryin', beggin' me daddy please don't go
I mean he huggin on my knee, beggin' me daddy please don't go
You see he to young to understand, why mommy don't kiss daddy no more

Well it be late on in the evening and I'm out on the outskirts of town
Late on in the evening, I'm out on the outskirts of town
I chews me a seed and I, watch that evening sun go down

I seen you cryin' in the night
I seen you cryin'
Things wasn't right
I'd a been there
Holdin' you tight
Might a known wrong from right

I heard you talkin' on the phone
Tellin' your friends
Tired a being alone
I'd a been there
Keepin' you warm
You might a known wrong from right

One step forward
Two steps back
Now we're goin' down the wrong track
Got us to turned around
That we can't get back

I seen you walkin'
Out the door
I remember it well
You ain't done that before
Asked you to stay
Begged you not to go
Your eyes said yes
But your heart said no no no

(refrain twice)

I need an omen
I need a sign
I need to get my peace of mind
Now at night I'm gonna get down
Oh but I love ya' on sacred ground

Woke up in the mornin'
Another link in my chain
Now at night I'm gonna get down
Oh but I love ya' on sacred ground

You know its true
I been accused
That's what you get for
Layin' down with fools
Now at night I'm gonna get down
Oh but I love ya' on sacred ground

Sacred Ground
Sacred Ground
That's when a kiss in the mist
Gonna carry you down

I told my love
[la la ... why]
I knew look at the look in her eye
Honey at night I'm gonna get down
Oh were treadin' on sacred ground

I told my love
When the moon come up
You gotta give what you got
Baby open your eyes and look up
Now at night I'm gonna get down
Oh but I love ya' on sacred ground

Sacred Ground
Sacred Ground
That's when a mist like a kiss
Hangin' over the town
Gonna carry you down
Now the moon is high, I get down
Oh but I love ya' on sacred ground

Somebody Been Missing Somebody


by John Mooney / Gary Nicholson
recording of 1996
from
Against the Wall (House Of Blues 87006, Ruf 51416 1389 2), copyright notice

I made a mistake last night
Called you up on the phone
Woman said, "I'm sorry sir,
your girl she is long gone"
And I know
Something right is going on wrong
I'm missin' something
Somebody missin' me too long

I went over by your house
Walked right through the door
Who was that man with that great big gun
Said you are goin' be long
Now I know
Something right is going on wrong
I'm missin' something
Somebody missin' me too long

Somebody missin' me too long
You know you got a drag
When what you really once had
Is all you really want
From now on
Every time you find a new lover
You find a way
To make it go wrong
You know somebody missin' me too long

I have tried
I have cried
I've even called out your name
All that I hear echoin' back
Is that the answer is still the same
And I know
Something right is going on wrong
I'm missin' something
Somebody missin' me too long

(refrain)

Sweat 'N Bones

Against the Wall (House Of Blues 87006, Ruf 51416 1389 2), copyright notice

Should not left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones
Should not left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones

Went by your house baby
You told me you'd be home
Peeked in the window
But the curtains was all drawn
When around the back
To see what's goin' on
I went in the door child
Something must be wrong

I shouldn't left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones
Should not left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones

You told me not to write baby
You told me not to phone
All you do is tell me
Wrong wrong wrong
I remember back
On the day long gone
When you heard me turn
Nothin' could go wrong

I shouldn't left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones
Should not left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones

You told me not to write baby
You told me not to phone
All you do is tell me
Wrong wrong wrong
I remember back
On the day long gone
When you heard me turn
Nothin' could go wrong

I shouldn't left you alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones
Should not left her alone
All that's left is sweat 'n bones

Won't tell me where
Won't tell my why
All you do sit there and cry
I can't never seem
To find the right time
Got to get you baby
Honey off my mind
Oh sweat 'n bones
Should not left you alone
Oh sweat 'n bones

The Bitter Pill


by Michelle Shocked
recording of 1996
from
Against the Wall (House Of Blues 87006, Ruf 51416 1389 2), copyright notice

Hey the bitter pill
Took all I can stand
The bitter pill
You know I took it like a man
Better find a cure
I can't take no more
The remedy to kill
The bitter pill

Doctor I know 'bout my reputation
Still all and all I been a good patient
Give me the medicine doctor
Give me a nurse
If I don't get better quick
I need a hearse

Its some kind of virus
Some kind of bug
All I know I need a little more of your drug
I ain't in know condition to try and speak
My mind is gone my will is weak

Hey the bitter pill
Took all I can stand
The bitter pill
You know I took it like a man
Better find a cure
I can't take no more
The remedy to kill
The bitter pill

At the infirmary its an emergency
They claim its full of sin
And tellin' me to believe
Don't want the needles
I can't go on at night
If I don't better quick
I take my life

Only healthy man
Not to my description
Dialed and used the phone
And took my prescription
He got what the doctor
Ordered for me
The doctor timed a murder child
In first degree

Hey the bitter pill
Took all I can stand
The bitter pill
You know I took it like a man
Better find a cure
I can't take no more
The remedy to kill
The bitter pill

'Told me that you
Didn't love me baby
'Told me that you
Never would be true
'Told me that you gonna leave
Said that you'd leave me
Settin' alone and blue

Told me to love another
Told me to think it ain't love so true
Told me that you gonna leave
Said that you'd leave me
Settin' alone and blue

Told me you ready
To love me baby
Told me to think that you
Ready to be true
Told me that you don't love another
Said you sittin' here all
Alone and blue
Yea now you sittin' here baby
All alone and blue
