Anything For Your Love


by Jerry Lynn Williams
recording 1988

from The Winter of '88 (Voyager MCAD-42241), copyright notice

God's got a plan
He's makin' it clear
Sweet little love song
In your ear
Like hearts made of diamond
Love will prevail
Put a little wind in your sail

I'd do anything, anything
You could dream of
I'd do anything, anything
For your love
For your love

Listen now baby
I gotta tell you true
Just how much that
I love you
I got a sweet feeling
I know is real
This kind of love
You can't conceal

I'd do anything, anything
You could dream of
I'd do anything, anything
For your love
For your love

Bad Girl Blues


by probably Johnny Winter
recording 1986

from Third Degree (Alligator ALCD-4748), copyright notice

These women loving each other,
you know they ain't thinkin' about no man
They ain't keepin' secrets no more,
they playing a wide open hand

I saw a little girl the other day,
I asked her for a little thrill
She said I'm so sorry daddy,
but I'm puttin' out the same thing you is

I took the woman out ridin',
bought her all kinds of whiskey and wine
I guess I was too drunk to realize,
she say I'll see you some other time

The woman gets all dressed up to boogie,
goes out smelling sweet like a rose
Comes home 5 o'clock in the mornin',
with that fish scent on her clothes

recording 1969

from The Progressive Blues Experiment (One Way 57340), copyright notice

I believe that bad luck and trouble, man is all that joins us
I mean that bad luck and trouble, people that's all that joins us
When my bad luck quit me, Lord my trouble just began

I'm travelin' the highway, since I was a child
Nobody see no woman man, nobody seems to care
Bad luck and trouble, man is all that joins us
When my bad luck quit me, man my trouble just began

Lord I'm sittin' down and thinkin', man I'm a long, long way from home
Just sittin' down and thinkin, man I'm a long, long way from home
Think about all my good times lord and my friends all want to know
They never hurt nobody, they never done nobody wrong

Other people won't accept me they say man leave me alone
Sittin' down and thinkin', Lord I'm a long long way from home
Thinkin' about my good times, man and my friends all want to know
Yeah

Man ain't nobody has this trouble, I gonna tell nobody else
Nobody else has this trouble, man ain't gonna tell nobody else
My whole life I'm livin' baby, gonna make it by myself

Blues This Bad


by Paris
recording 1992

from Hey, Where's Your Brother? (Capitol 86512), copyright notice

I woke up this morning, with something that I've never had
I woke up this morning, with something that I've never had
I've had the blues before but I've never had the blues, I've never had the blues this bad

Everyone that I talk to, everybody feelin' down and out
Everyone that I talk to, everybody feelin' down and out
Everybody's got an answer but nobody really knows, nobody really knows what it's all about

There ain't no drugs can help me, my baby she can't ease my mind
There ain't no drugs can help me, my baby she can't ease my mind
I don't even know what hit me but I just have to keep on, I just have to keep on, keep on tryin'

Tables don't stop turnin', who knows what we're headed for
Tables don't stop turnin', who knows what we're headed for
Nothin' I say or do, ain't gonna mean a thing, ain't gonna mean a thing and that's for sure

I got a girl named Boney Moronie
She's as skinny as a stick of macaroni
Oughta see her rock-n-roll with her blue jeans on
She's not very fat she's just skin and bones

I love her and she loves me
Oh, how happy now we could be
Makin' love underneath the apple tree

She's my one and only she's my hearts desire
She's a real upsetter she's a real live wire
Everybody turns when my baby walks by
She's something to see she really catches your eye

Gonna tell her momma and her poppa too
Just exactly what I want to do
I wanna get married on a night in June
And rock-n-roll by the light of the silvery moon

When I think about that woman, I got evil on my mind

It sends chills out down my spine, when I watch this woman walk
Sends chills out down my spine, when I watch that woman walk
And she smiles right in your face and lies ev'ry times she talks

They say your enemies can't hurt you, if you keep track on your friend
I say you know what your woman, that's the one who threw you in
