Serious As A Heart attack


by Johnny Winter
recording 1985

from Serious Business (Alligator ALCD-4742), copyright notice

Hear me talking to ya baby
I'm serious as a heart attack
If you don't stop the thing's you're doin'
I'm gonna turn your blue eyes black

You never stay at home and you
Keep your business in the street
You don't do no dirty clothes and there's
Never nothin' here to eat

Well girl this love affair is
Pretty close to ruin
Every time I try and do ya, oh
You say nothin' doin'

You never stay at home and you
Keep your business in the street
You don't do no dirty clothes and there's
Never nothin' here to eat

You're the kind of woman
Would feel right at home in hell
Ya stick me with a pitchfork
Just to hear me yell

You never stay at home and you
Keep your business in the street
You don't do no dirty clothes and there's
Never nothin' here to eat

Shake Your Moneymaker


by Elmore James
recording 1986

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

Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
And then

Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
And then

I got a girl who lives up on the hill
I got a girl who lives up on the hill
Says she gonna love me but I don't believe she will

You gotta shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
You gotta shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
You gotta shake your moneymaker
And then

I got a girl and she just won't be true
I got a girl and she just won't be true
She's locked to the bridge, she won't do a thing I tell her to do

She won't shake her moneymaker,
won't shake her moneymaker
She wanna roll her activator
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't

Silver train kept a comin', think I'm gonna get on down, oh yeah, oh yeah
Silver train kept a comin', think I'm gonna get on down, oh yeah, oh yeah

Silver rain kept a fallin', fallin' up around my house, oh yeah, oh yeah
Silver rain kept a fallin', fallin' up around my house, oh yeah, oh yeah

And I did not know her name, no I did not know her name, but I
Sure like the way she left when she called me honey

Still Alive And Well

soundclip


by Rick Derringer
recording 1969 resp. 1973 and 1995

from The Johnny Winter Story (GRT 10010) & Still Alive and Well (Columbia CK-32188) & Rock & Roll People (Sony 20319), copyright notice

Did you ever look to see who is left around?
When I think about the past it only brings me down

Everyone I thought was cool is six feet under ground
Make love in the grass while the sun is shining down

They tried to get me lots of times and now they're
It feels so good your long blond hair baby

Coming after you I got out and I'm here to say
When you're down low make me shake make the whole earth quake

Baby you can get out to I'm Still alive and well
So everyone will know

I'm still alive and well
I'm still alive and well every now and then its kind of hard
To tell I'm still alive and well

Stranger Blues

soundclip


by Elmore James / Morris Levy / Clarence Lewis
recording 1988

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

Well, I'm a stranger here and I just blowed in your town
Well, I'm a stranger here and I just blowed in your town
Just because I'm a stranger everybody wants to dog me around

Well, I'm going back now south, if I have wear ninety nine pair of shoes
Well, I'm going back now south, if I have wear ninety nine pair of shoes
Then I won't be no more stranger, I won't have no more stranger's blues

Well, sometime I wonder, do my good gal know I'm here?
Well, sometime I wonder, do my good gal know I'm here?
Well, if she do, she sure don't seem to care, don't seem to care

The Sky Is Crying


by Elmore James
recording 1998

from Live in NYC '97 (Virgin 45527), copyright notice

The sky is crying
Look at the tears roll down the street

The sky is crying
Look at the tears roll down the street

I'm feeling sad and lonely
My baby's left me

Understanding and a little lovin'
A little love is all that I need

Understanding and a little lovin'
A little love is all that I need

But misunderstanding and a no-good woman
They both cause my heart to bleed

Now every morning
The weeping willows weep for me

Now every morning baby
The weeping willows weep for me

The birds sing a little tune
I wish they'd sing my baby back home to me

The sky is crying
Look at the tears roll down the street

The sky is crying
Look at the tears roll down the street

I'm feeling sad and lonely
My baby's left me

Tribute To Muddy

soundclip


by Johnny Winter
recording 1969

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

Woah, Lord I wish, Lord I wonder what happens
Answer's the nickel, a deep blues sea
I tore all the good looking women somewhere
Sure enough baby that's me, 'cause it's gonna happen

Lord my mother, well so as my father
About three months long before I was born
Said I got a boy child coming
Sure enough it gonna be a rolling stone
Lord I'm gonna get a rolling stone man

Lord I'm broke
Lord I'm broke
Now I reckon I better do
Lord if I clean up little girls
Then I go home with you
Yeah man I'm gonna walk

Woah, Lord it's true, two things running
Lord I believe you're the worst child in my way
We're gonna watch them run at midnight
But the one that's running just gonna lie dead

Lord she's lone yeah and she's tall
Lord she weeps like a banshee
Lord the folks they say she's no good
But she's all right with me, 'cause I'll be right there

Woah, ho, ho
Somebody help me, help me, I always lose
Lord see if the girl don't love the man you know
That's when I do the voodoos
Ah, don't make you hurt honey

Well I laid down last night and I turned my T.V. on

Oh, she was cryin', wanna get my t v fixed
She said a T.V. service and she need it mighty quick by the way

Now well I called the T.V. doctor he came over right away
He said he'll see what he can do here to haul my set away
I told no damn well I'll never do, man if you don't get the picture

I'm gonna do some work on you work a while go ahead now, got my T.V. working

Walking Thru The Park

soundclip


by McKinley Morganfield a.k.a. Muddy Waters
recording 1969-'79

from A Johnny Winter: A Rock N' Roll Collection (Columbia/Legacy 46985), copyright notice

I'm goin' out walkin',
walking down through the park
I'm gonna walk in the moonlight,
till the night gets dark

I'm goin' out walkin',
along the old avenue
I'm gonna walk for so long,
till she won't know what to do

I'm goin' out walkin',
walkin' down along the street
I'm gonna walk her along beside me,
that girl can't be beat

Don't you bother my baby,
no tellin' what she'll do
The girl she may cut you,
she may shoot you too

World Of Contradictions

soundclip


by Johnny Winter
recording 1988

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

I make my living feeling rotten, but I feel good when I play blues
I make my living feeling rotten, but I feel good when I play blues
In this world of contradictions, man what can a poor boy do?

Some folks say you can't sing blues, when you're feeling good
I'm just feeling lousy, I knock on wood
I make my living feeling rotten, but I feel good when I play blues

In this world of contradictions, man what can a poor boy do?
I guess the worst things get, the better they must be
this mixed up way of thinking man, is killing me
I make my living feeling rotten but I feel good when I play blues yes I do
In this world of contradictions what can a poor boy do
Yeah, what can I do, oh

Yeah, woo
Well if I feel a little bit better, I'll probably go broke
It' enough to give a man the blues and man that ain't no joke
I make my living feeling rotten I feel good when I play blues
Well in this world of contradictions, what can a poor boy do
