Aberdeen

soundclip


by Bukka White
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

I was over in Aberdeen,
on my way to New Orleans
I was over in Aberdeen,
on my way to New Orleans
Well them Aberdeen women told me,
they would give me my gasoline

Aberdeen is my home,
but they just don't want me around
Aberdeen is my home,
but they just don't want me around
I'm gonna take these women,
take them out this town

Well just look over yonder,
coming down the road
Well just look over yonder,
coming down the road
That must be my baby coming,
tell me she don't want me no more

Well there's too many women,
I ain't never seen
Well there's too many women,
I ain't never seen
I bring too many women,
back from New Orleans

I was standin' 'round cryin',
with my heart right in my hand
I was standin' 'round cryin',
with my heart right in my hand
I was lookin' for that woman,
one ain't got no man

Well just look over yonder,
where we used to live
Well just look over yonder,
where we used to live
Don't you know it's killing me baby,
how we can't live here no more

Well it's goodbye baby,
If I'm never gonna see you no more
Well it's goodbye baby,
if I'm never gonna see you no more
I'm gonna tell everybody you've been,
still knockin' at my door

Blue On Black

soundclip


by Kenny Wayne Shepherd / Mark Selby / Tia Sillers
recording of 1997
from
Trouble Is (Revolution/Warner Brothers 24689), copyright notice

Night, falls,
I'm alone
Skin, yeah,
chilled me to the bone
You, turned and you ran,
oh, slipped from the edge of my hand

Blue on black,
tears on a river
Push on a shove,
it don't mean much
Whisper on a scream,
doesn't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black

Blind, oh,
now I see
truth, lies,
and in between
Wrong,
can't be undone
Slipped,
from the tip of your tongue

Blue on black,
tears on a river
Push on a shove,
it don't mean much
Whisper on a scream,
doesn't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black

Born With A Broken Heart

soundclip


by Kenny Wayne Shepherd / Danny Tate
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

Up from the ashes, out of the flames
Keeps gettin' stronger, like a slow rollin' train
Watch it run
Oh, why do the good die young
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Off in the distance, it was callin' my name
So I took me a ride, on that slow rollin' train
It still runs
But it seems that the good die young
Playin' on that sad guitar
Born with a broken heart
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Seems it was over, before it begun
Killed by a bullet, from a six-string gun
Bang a drum
Oh, why do the good die young
Ridin' in a long black car
Born with a broken heart
Playin' on that sad guitar
Born with a broken heart
Burnin' like a shootin' star
Born with a broken heart

Deja Voodoo

soundclip


by Kenny Wayne Shepherd / Mark Selby / Tia Sillers
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

Needles in my heart, spell on my mind,
your powerful potion gets me every time
I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

(Chorus:)
Here it comes again,
I don't stand a chance
Soul possession,
got me in a trance
Pullin' me back to you
Deja voodoo

Fire in the dark, pounding in my brain,
driven by the chant calling out my name
I toss and turn, I can't sleep,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

Needles in my heart, spell on my mind,
your powerful potion gets me every time
I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night,
your kiss burns, through my dreams

(Chorus:)
Here it comes again,
I don't stand a chance
Soul possession,
got me in a trance
Pullin' me back to you
Deja voodoo

Everybody Gets The Blues

soundclip


by Angel Michael
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

It don't matter if you're rich
It don't make no difference if you're poor
Simple things in life can make you mad to the core
It doesn't matter if you're young
Don't make no difference if you're old
You got to stand a little rain
Before you reach a pot of gold

Chorus:
Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues

Ain't no different for a woman
Than it is for a man
Everybody goes dancing
Everybody pays the band
Everybody got to take
Everybody got to give
Everybody got to live

Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues

Don't matter if you're fat
Don't matter if you're thin
Everybody got to lose
Everybody got to win
Don't matter if you're black
Don't matter if you're white
You know you got to get it wrong
To have a chance to make it right

Everybody gets the blues
Everybody got to cry
Take the good with the bad
Take the lows and the high
Well you work and you worry
Spend you life paying dues
Everybody has a hard time sometime
Everybody gets the blues
