I'm On Your Side

soundclip


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

Get with me baby
I'm on your side
Get with me baby
I'm on your side

Well there's a change
In the weather
Change of time
But I'm a stubborn man
I won't change my mind
Get with me baby
I'm on your side

Talk to me baby
I'm on your side
Talk with me baby
I'm on your side

I don't wanna argue
Sure don't wanna fight
Just tell me what's wrong
And let me make it alright
Get with me baby
I'm on your side

I´ll be your sugar daddy
Just call on me
I´ll be your vigilante
If that's what you need baby
What I need to be girl

Get with me baby
I'm on your side
Get with me baby
I'm on your side

Now I don't wanna own you
Like a private property
Come on baby
Just be nice to me
Get with me baby
I'm on your side

Get with me baby
I'm on your side

I'm Telling You Now

soundclip


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

So much has went unspoken
Along the way
Hearts have healed
And hearts have broken
In the pain of yesterday
Gone are the shadows
They vanished in the Light
Let your heart surrender
Let your soul take flight

(Chorus:)
And let bygones be bygones
And troubles be long gone
And if I never told you
How I feel about you
I'm telling you now

We gather here together
With all of our friends
In a room full of love and laughter
The healing begins
And if this was my last moment
My last breath
I'd wanna be surrounded
With joy and happiness

(Chorus)

And if I never told you
How I feel about you
I'm telling you now

I Don't Know

soundclip


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

You tell me that you love me
That you really care
We've talked it out
We did our best
And still it ain't going nowhere

It feels like our forever
just ended yesterday
And all our tomorrow's
Were simply tossed away

Should I stay, should I go, I don't know

Could it be I've always
Known it all along
And didn't have the courage
To tell you what was wrong

What's the in cryin´
Why should we be sad
Maybe in the long run
It really ain't so sad

Should I stay, should I go, I don't know

Whatever I tell myself
Whatever I do
I can't get a hold on nothing
And I can't break through
Whenever I feel myself
Slipping away
I'm gonna hold on

There's a time to walk away
And a time to learn
A time will come when I´ll know
Just when and where to turn

Until we know the answer
Faith is all we have
Our trust is in the moment
Fear is in the past

I Was Wrong

soundclip


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

Wait a minute baby
Don't leave just yet
I can explain baby
But it looks like the more I talk
The madder you get
It's not what you think it is
Trust me, I wouldn't do you no harm
She means nothing to me
The whole time I was imagining
It was you in my arms
You in my arms

(Chorus:)
I was wrong
And I admit it
My explanations
Don't seem to get it
I was wrong
And my heart can't take it
If you leave me now
I'm not gonna make it
I'm not gonna make it-no

What about the good times baby
What about all the fun we had together
It meant a lot to me baby
It must have meant something to you
Well ok, I see your point
But baby please
Don't let a little thing like this come between us
´Cause our love is bigger than this
It's more than this
It's bigger than the universe
It's bigger than life

(Chorus x2)

Just Like You

soundclip


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

Hello my old friend
It's been awhile
All our old clothes
Are back in style
We went our separate ways,
Only to return
To face a lesson
We failed to learn

We didn't understand the truth
We were blinded by the eyes of youth
But time kept on moving
And a change has come
You think that I don't know
Where you're coming from

(Chorus:)
'Cause I feel just like you
And I cry just like you
But I heal just like you
And under my skin
I'm just like you

You gave your love and your innocence
And they took away your confidence
Well I'm not those women
I'm not those men
Put your arms around me
I am your friend

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
You and everybody else
When I get hurt
I cry for help
And I've got secrets
That god only knows
And god knows I feel...

(Chorus)

Last Fair Deal Gone Down

soundclip


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

It's the last fair deal goin' down,
last fair deal goin' down
It's the last fair deal goin' down, good Lord,
on that Gulfport Island Road1

Ida Belle, don't you cry this time
Ida Belle, don't you cry this time
If you cry about a nickel, you'll die 'bout a dime
I wouldn't cry, but the money it ain't mine

My captain 's so mean on me
My captain's so mean on me
My captain's so mean on me, good Lord,
on that Gulfport Island Road

Workin' my way back home
Workin' my way back home
I'm workin' my way back home, good Lord,
on that Gulfport Island Road

It's the last fair deal goin' down, last fair deal goin' down
It's the last fair deal goin' down, good Lord,
on that Gulfport Island Road
On that Gulfport Island Road
On that Gulfport Island

__________
Note: this is Keb' Mo's cover version of Robert Johnson's original "Last Fair Deal Gone Down";
Note 1: The Gulfport Island or Gulf & Ship Island railroad linked the docks at Ship Island, Mississippi, just off the main land at the city of Gulfport on the Gulf of Mexico with the main railroad line at Jackson.

Love Blues

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

I love the way you love me and I love the way you comb your hair
I love the way you love me, baby, love the way you comb your hair
If it would left up to me, babe, you would never ...

Hey, sweet mama, baby, don't you go too far
Hey, sweet mama, baby, don't you go too far
I wanna know every minute who you're with and where you are

I love you, baby, so please don't you leave me here all alone
I can't stand it, baby, when you leave me here all alone
So whenever you decide to go, baby, just don't stay gone too long

I love you, baby, I just can't leave you alone
You know, I love you, baby, and I just can't leave you alone
I love you baby just like a dog loves a bone

I'm gonna wrap my arms around you and squeeze you till I cry
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you, squeeze you till I cry (yes, I am)
Gonna keep on loving you, baby, till the day I die

(It's gonna be a long time)

Lullaby Baby Blues

soundclip


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

Lullaby baby blues
Time to kick off your walkin' shoes
And hug the pillow on your bed
And lay down your sleepy head

Hush now no need to talk
Hear the ticking of the clock
Stars that twinkle, stars that shine
Dream and you'll have wings

Goodnight baby blues
Close your eyes baby blues
The moonlit sky watches over you
So close your eyes baby blues

Lullaby baby blues
Time to kick off your walkin' shoes
And hug the pillow on your bed
And lay down your sleepy head

Goodnight baby blues
Close your eyes baby blues
The moonlit sky watches over you
Close your eyes baby blues

Momma, Where's My Daddy

soundclip


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

Oh momma, where's my daddy
Why don't he ever come around
Momma, where's my daddy
Is he nowhere to be found

Momma, where's my daddy
Can we call him on the phone
Does he ever think about us
Or does he have a heart of stone

Momma what's the matter
Why's there water in your eyes
Do you need him as much as I do
I love you momma, please don't cry

Where does he come from
What does he look like
Does he have a face like mine
Is he ever comin back here
And why'd he leave us all behind

Momma when did you and daddy get married
Was it in 19 and 83
“Son, your daddy and I were married
But he just wasn't married to me“

Oh momma, where's my daddy
Why don't he ever come around
Momma, where's my daddy
Is he nowhere to be found
