Angel Of Mercy

soundclip


by Bruce McCabe / Michael Henderson
recording of 1998
from
Wander This World (A&M 540984), copyright notice


Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came to my rescue,
heaven must be watchin' over me

When the shadows fallin' and the day turns into night,
I hear my angel callin' and I can't wait to see the light
Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue,
heaven must be watchin' over me

Sometimes I get a feelin' like a fever comin' over me,
just a touch of my angels hand and I'm right back on my feet

Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue,
heaven must be watchin' over me

Stay with me baby, come down from the sky
Just like an angel, take me to paradise

Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue,
heaven must be watchin' over me

A Quitter Never Wins

soundclip


by Tinsley Ellis / Margaret Sampson
recording of 1997
from
Lie To Me (A&M 540640), copyright notice


Seems like now days ain’t nothin’ meant to last
one day you’ve got it all and then it disappears so fast,
and you know our love is on and off again
Well I know you wanna quit me, baby,
but a quitter never wins

Well, you’ve walked out on our lovin’,
but I’ve stayed through thick and thin,
and you know our love is on and off again
I know you want to quit me,
but a quitter never wins

Seems like now days love is a word that no one means
Ya said you’d never leave me,
then ya upped and walked right out on me,
and now our love is on and off again
Well, I know you wanna quit me,
but a quitter never wins

Well, I know you wanna quit me baby
But a quitter never wins,
a quitter never wins

Back For A Taste Of Your Love

recording of 1997
from
Lie To Me (A&M 540640), copyright notice


Here I come, I'm coming for a taste of your love
Here I come, baby, because I like what you do for me

Little by little, bit by bit,
I'm falling in love all over again

Here I come, I'm coming for a taste of your love
Here I come now, baby, just like I did before
And I'm coming back, 'cause this time I'm sure

It takes two, to make it,
and I know you can take it, again

Here I come, I'm back for a taste of your Love
Here I come, I'm coming back for you now

What you've been, just come down on me
You've got the lock, pretty baby, but I've got the key

Little by little, bit by bit,
I'm falling in Love all over again

Here I come, I'm coming for a taste of your love
Here I come now baby, I'm back for a taste of your love

You know, I'm coming back for a taste of your love
You know, I've got to come back now baby

Before You Hit The Ground

soundclip


by Kevin Bowe / Jonny Lang
recording of 1998
from
Wander This World (A&M 540984), copyright notice


I seen every one of the faces you wear,
low, high and everything in between
Your eyes are fixed on the prize like a dead man's stare
Tick. tock, the hands on the clock don't care

Buzz is good
Feelin' fine
One of these days,
you'll be out of time
God ain't gonna look for you,
down in the lost and found
You better look up or you're gonna be gone,
before you hit the ground

You'll keep dippin' in till the well run dry,
hope you don't get thirsty later
I know talking to you's just a waste of my time,
I'm gonna stop tellin' you how to live your life

One more, time to score so make it fast,
when you lose your mind you got no mind left to lose
Three, four open the door to your last chance,
and when you get where you're goin' you won't be comin' back

You better look up or you're gonna be gone,
before you hit the ground

Breakin' Me

soundclip


by Jonny Lang / Kevin Bowe
recording of 1998
from
Wander This World (A&M 540984), copyright notice


Every day I see your face I wish I'd stayed
Don't even know what made me run away
It's just the way I play the game

Emotional is not a word I'd use to explain myself,
but now I'm down upon my knees
Baby please take me back

I don't want to be in love but you're makin' me
Let me up I've had enough, girl you're breakin' me

Here I am just half a man standing alone,
feeling like I lost my only chance,
at happiness when I let you go

I don't want to be alone thinkin' bout you girl,
I got nothin' left to hold in this lonely world

The first time my heart was ever touched,
was the day I lost your love
I can feel it in my flesh and blood,
my soul can only take it so much

So there it is, why can't you give us one more try
You and I could find a way to live,
if you let me in one more time

I know you lost your faith in me but I still believe
Can I make you understand, can I make you see,
that I'm desperate for your love and it's breakin' me

It's breakin' me

Changes


by Jonny Lang
recording of 1995
from
Smokin' (Oarfin 9523), copyright notice


I got a friend at the bar,
his name is Ray
And I really don't know,
what he's trying to say

His skin is black,
mine is white
To me there's no difference,
wrong or right

Told me he leave,
the girl at the curb
Told me never to speak an unkind word
My brother's got rhythm,
I got the blues but
Babe we love to live the life that we choose

But now I know what they was trying to say
I gotta change my life,
change my ways

Now I know what they were trying to say
I gotta change my life,
change my ways

Now when the night comes babe,
you know I'll be found
I'll be playing the blues on every stage in town

And there's a song to be played,
and there's a song to be sung
'Cause there's a little lovin' boy,
in everyone

Cherry Red Wine

soundclip


by Luther Allison
recording of 1998
from
Wander This World (A&M 540984), copyright notice


Watching you baby, watching you all the time
Watching you, watching you all the time
Watching you destroy yourself, all you do is sit around drinking wine

You worry me baby
I'm sitting here wondering, wondering what in the world can I do
You're worrying me, you're worrying me baby
Sitting here wondering, what in the world can I do
We've got so much to live for baby
But I can't do nothing but sit here, and watch that wine destroy you

That's wrong baby

I'm taking you to the doctor darling
Maybe the doctor knows, what's going on in your head
Maybe the doctor can help me baby
Maybe he knows, what's going on in your head
You see you're gonna keep on drinking that bad wine baby
Even the glass that grows on your grave will be cherry red

Darker Side

soundclip


by Bruce McCabe
recording of 1997
from
Lie To Me (A&M 540640), copyright notice


Look at the man with the smile on his face
Looks like he’s always feelin’ good
Sometimes you might want to take his place,
and sometimes I think that you would

When the sun is goin’ down,
and there is no place to hide
Even in the brightest light,
you might lean toward the darker side

Look at the people, they learn how to lie so easy
They learn how to lie to get what they need,
and after they got what they needed
It turns into a simple case of greed

When they no longer feel ashamed,
and they’ve lost all sense of pride
Misery loves company,
and it’s lonely on the darker side

And when the party is over,
and the music has died
You’ll be dancin’ to the music, baby,
somewhere on the darker side

Somewhere on the darker side

from
Smokin' (Oarfin 9523), copyright notice


Take the "E" train babe, take the easy train to Austin
Take the "E" train babe, take the easy train to Austin
Baby you been ridin' that train so long, Lord knows when you'll come home

Come on ride with me baby, all the drinks are on me
Come on ride with me baby, all the drinks are on me
Honey you know there ain't no last call, when you ride on the "E"

Let your light shine down, let it shine down on me
Let your light shine down Lord, let it shine on me
Lord let your good light shine, let it shine on the "E" train

Take the "E" train
Take the "E" train
Baby take the "E" train,
take the easy train to Austin
Honey you been ridin' that train so long,
Lord knows when you'll come home

Good Morning Little School Girl

soundclip


by Sonny Boy Williamson II (Rice Miller)
recording of 1997
from
Lie To Me (A&M 540640), copyright notice


A good morning little schoolgirl,
can I go home with you?
Tell your mama and your daddy,
that I'm a little schoolboy too

Baby I love you,
I just can't help help myself
You're so good looking pretty babe,
I don't need nobody else.

Good morning little schoolgirl,
can I go home with you?
Uh, Uh, Uh
I'm gonna leave you baby,
about the break of day
On account of the way you treat me,
I've got to stay away

A good morning little schoolgirl,
can I go home with you?
Tell your mama and your daddy,
that I'm a little schoolboy too

Come on pretty baby,
oh you know I can't help myself
Uh, Uh, Uh
I'm gonna buy me an aeroplane,
to fly all over your town.
And tell everybody baby,
Lord knows you've been putting me down.

I can't stand it babe,
just cannot help myself
You're so young and pretty,
but you're lovin' somebody else

A good morning little schoolgirl,
can I go home with you?
Uh, uh, uh
Oh babe what you do to me,
I can't help myself

Hit The Ground Running

soundclip


by Michel Lunn / Jeff Silbar
recording of 1997
from
Lie To Me (A&M 540640), copyright notice


The biggest fool there ever was
I let you go,
and now I can't survive without your touch
I need you so

But baby all you've got to do,
is tell me that you need me too

I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running back to you

Oh well I'd rather die a thousand deaths,
than to lose your love
But now I'm drowning in my loneliness
I can rise above, yeah again

Well just forgive me this one last time,
and tell me baby you're still mine

I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running baby, yeah
I hit the ground running back to you

Oh I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running back to you

Ah, you know I'm coming,
I'm coming back for you by now baby
So if you don't want me baby,
lock your doors cause here I come
