A Better Man

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / O. Osbourne
recording of 1998
from
Slow Down (OKeh/550/Epic/Sony 491613 9), copyright notice

Sittin' here in my problem
What am I gonna do now
Am I gonna make it
Someway, somehow

Maybe I'm not supposed to know
Maybe I'm supposed to cry
And if nobody ever knows
The way I feel
It's all right
And it'll be ok

(Chorus:)
I'm gonna make my world a better place
I'm gonna keep that smile on my face
I'm gonna teach myself how to understand
I'm gonna make myself a better man

Climbing out of the window
Climbing up the wall
Is anybody gonna save me
Or are they gonna let me fall
Well I don't really wanna know
I´ll just hold on the best I can
And if I fall down
I´ll just get back up
It'll be alright
It'll be ok

(Chorus 2x)

Maybe I'm not supposed to know
Maybe I'm supposed to cry
And if nobody ever knows
The way I feel
That's all right
It'll be ok

(Chorus 2x)

A Letter To Tracy

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / John Lewis Parker
recording of 1998
from
Slow Down (OKeh/550/Epic/Sony 491613 9), copyright notice

I don't have a reason
To turn you around
I don't have all the reasons
To turn you around
I ain't going nowhere baby
No how, no way

You're not always an angel baby
And I ain't no saint
You're not always an angel baby
And I ain't no saint
Well I know I'm gonna leave you baby
Well baby that something I ain't

I don't have a reason
To turn you around
I don't have a reason
To turn you around
I ain't going nowhere
No way, no how

My love is like a rock
Not a fair-weathered friend
My love is like a rock
I ain't no fair-weathered friend
I´ll follow you up the mountain
Down the road and back again

I don't have no trophy
To prove I'm a man
I don't need no trophy
To prove I'm a man
I just want somebody to talk to
So I can be free

I don't have a reason
Sorry about that false alarm
Turned you around
I ain't got all the reasons
To make you stay
I ain't going nowhere
No how, no way

Am I wrong

soundclip


by Kevin Moore
recording of 1994
from
Keb' Mo' (OKeh/Epic EK 57863), copyright notice

Am I wrong, fallin' in love with you,
tell me am I wrong, well, fallin' in love with you
While your other man was out there,
cheatin' and lyin', steppin' all over you

Uh, sweet thing
Tell me am I wrong, holdin' on to you so tight,
Tell me, tell me, am I wrong, holdin' on to you so tight
If your other man come to claim you,
he'd better be ready, ready for a long long fight

Well I gotta be strong, well I know you're dependin' on me
You know I gotta be strong, I know you're dependin' on me
To give you all of my attention,
all of my time, and all of the love you need

Oh, tell me, am I wrong tryin' to hold on to you
Tell me am I wrong, tryin' to hold on to you
I just wanna make a home for you baby,
and all of your children too

Tell me am I wrong, fallin' in love with you
Gotta tell me am I wrong, fallin' in love with you
While your other man was out there,
cheatin' and lyin', steppin' all over you
While your other man was out there,
cheatin' and lyin', steppin' all over you

Angelina

recording of 1994
from
Keb' Mo' (OKeh/Epic EK 57863), copyright notice

Angelina, baby, won't you please come home
Angelina, baby, won't you please come home
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone

Well, now my bed is empty, my feets and my hands are cold
You know my bed is empty, my feets and my hands are cold
Come on home, Angelina, my love for you will never grow old

Well now I've tried to love you with diamonds and pearls
But all that did was tear us apart
And I've tried to give you everything in the world
When all you really wanted - to wound my heart, oh-ho

Angelina, baby, won't you please come home
Oh, Angelina, baby, won't you please come home
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone

Well I've tried to love you with diamonds and pearls
But all that did was tear us apart
And I've tried to give you everything in the world
When all you really wanted - to wound my heart, my heart

Angelina, baby, baby, won't you please come home
Well, sweet Angelina, baby, won't you please come home
You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone

(That's right, baby)

You know my heart is aching and all my dreams have gone

Anybody Seen My Girl

soundclip


by Kevin Moore
recording of 1994
from
Keb' Mo' (OKeh/Epic EK 57863), copyright notice

None of my business, getting all of my concern
Tried to put out the fire, but the flame still burns
And as she pleases she comes and goes
She's got the wind in her hair
She never ceases to hurt me so

Does she really care?
Is she ever coming home?
Is she ever gonna phone?
Another night alone

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to me

Where am I going, oh what am I gonna do?
I know I'm not crazy, I'm just hooked on you
So go on and use me endlessly
Could you let me know
When you need me hold me close
And baby don't let go
Are you ever coming home?
Are you ever gonna phone?
Another night alone

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to me

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to me

Dangerous Mood

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / C. Parton
recording of 1996
from
Just Like You (OKeh/Epic/Sony 484117 6), copyright notice

Look out baby
I'm in a dangerous mood
I done called up the bossman
Told him where to go
And just what to do

Call me crazy
But i did what I had to do
You can call me stupid
I just did what I had to do
I had to steal a little time baby
So I could spend it all on you
I parked the car down the street
And I unplugged the phone
So it would look just like
Ain't nobody home
I put a rose on your pillow
Where you lay your pretty head
I'm gonna rub your tired shoulders
Bring your dinner to your bed

Look out baby
I'm in a dangerous mood
I had to steal a little time baby
So I could spend it all on you

I'm gonna light a candle
Put the champagne on ice
And if one ain't enough
Well we'll just have to do it twice
I done made myself a will
And I've called my next of kin
'Cause I'm gonna love you over
And over and over
Again and again

Look out baby
I'm in a dangerous mood
I had to steal a little time baby
So I could spend it all on you

Look out baby
I'm in a dangerous mood
Look out baby
I'm in a dangerous mood
I just this one last paycheck baby
And I'm gonna spend every dime on you

Every Morning

soundclip


by probably Kevin Moore
recording of 1994
from
Keb' Mo' (OKeh/Epic EK 57863), copyright notice

Every mornin', every evenin', every day I, I think of you
The way you love me, through and through

When I'm with you, it feels like heaven
You're an angel, holdin' me
Your sweet, sweet lovin', it sets me free

And in my wildest, imagination,
I could never, imagine you
Lovin' me as much as, as I do love you

And it may be winter, it may be fall
I might have plenty, or nothin' at all
But baby I'll be there, whenever you call, ever you call

'Cause every mornin', and every evenin', every day I, I think of you
The way you love me, through and through
The way you love me, through and through

From Hog Creek in beautiful downtown Southern Indiana, Arlie Grampy Box

Everything I Need

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / C. Streetman
recording of 1998
from
Slow Down (OKeh/550/Epic/Sony 491613 9), copyright notice

Ain't got no money
No where to sleep
No friend no family
No bread no meat
No bread no meat
No friend no family
No bread, no bread no meat

I ain't got no reason
Ain't got no rhyme
Ain't gettin' no younger
And I'm runnin' outta time
Runnin' outta time
Ain't gettin' no younger
And I'm runnin' outta time
Oh yes I am

(Chorus:)
But I'm still climbing up the mountain side
Don't count me out
Long as I got my heart and soul
I got everything
I got everything I need
Everything I need

Ain't got no window
Ain't got no door
But I can feel the sun shining
Where it's never shined before
Never shined before
Feel the sun shining where it's never shined before

(Chorus 2x)

But I'm still climbing up the mountain side
Can't count me out
Long as I got my heart and soul
I got everything
I got everything I need
Everything I need

Ain't got no picture
Ain't got no wall
Ain't got nobody
Hear me when I call
Hear me when I call
Ain't got nobody
Hear me when I call

(Chorus)

God Trying To Get Your Attention

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / C. Linden
recording of 1998
from
Slow Down (OKeh/550/Epic/Sony 491613 9), copyright notice

Well you might be saved
You might be reborn
You might own a car
With a big loud horn

Maybe it's just news
On your television
Or it might be God trying to get your attention

Are you an engineer
Working on a farm
Or a Casanova
With a whole lotta charme

It might be a mouse
Living in your kitchen
Or it might be God trying to get your attention

Well it might sound bad
Or it might sound good
Might be made of steel
Or it might be made of wood

Maybe it's just news
On your television
Or it might be God trying to get your attention

Well it might be in the church house
Or it might be on the street
Somehow or another
Every soul has got to meet

Well it might be in the city
Or it might be in town
One way or another
You're gonna find a higher ground

Well you might be deaf
Or you might be blind
She'll put the message
Right in your mind

Might look like a plan
Or a coalition
Or it might be God trying to get your attention

Well you might be deaf
Or you might be dumb
You'll get the answer
When the answer comes

Maybe it's just news on your television
Or it might be God trying to get your attention
It might be God trying to get your attention

Hand It Over

soundclip


by Kevin Moore
recording of 1996
from
Just Like You (OKeh/Epic/Sony 484117 6), copyright notice

If your problems
Won't go away
And you're worried
Both night and day
Hand it over
Get on your knees and pray

If you're sick
Feeling low
Got no money
Got nowhere to go
Hand it over
Get on your knees and pray

(Chorus:)
Hand it over
Hand it over
Give it up, give it over
Hand it over
Get on your knees and pray

(Bridge:)
Ain't no mountain
You cant climb
Ain't no answer
You can't find
All you need is a hand to hold
I´ll heal your body
And feed your soul

If the road is dark
And you can`t find your way
Just let the spirit light the way
Hand it over
Get on your knees and pray

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

Henry

soundclip


by Kevin Moore / John Lewis Parker
recording of 1998
from
Slow Down (OKeh/550/Epic/Sony 491613 9), copyright notice

Remember if you can
When cotton was picked by hand
Down in Dixie
Under southern skies
Working from sun to sun
Remember if you will
Lightnin' from a whiskey still
Blues in the breeze
The sweet magnolia trees
A little church house up on the hill

(Chorus:)
I can hear the delta calling
From the light of a distant star
I can see my future
And I can feel my past
When Henry plays his steel guitar

Won't you take me back in time
Free me from this crime
Well I have no shame
And I have no blame
It's time for us to be moving on

I can hear the delta calling
From the light of a distant star
I can see my future
And I can feel my past
When Henry plays his steel guitar

(Chorus x2)

I can hear the delta calling
From the light of a distant star
I can see my future
And I can feel my past
When Henry plays his steel guitar
