I'm Leaving You (Commit A Crime)

by Chester Burnett a.k.a. Howlin' Wolf
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

I'm leaving you, woman
Before I commit a crime
I'm leaving you, woman
Before I commit a crime
You tried so hard to kill me
But baby, it was not my time

You put poison in my coffee
Instead of milk or cream
You put poison in my coffee
Instead of milk or cream
You're the evilest woman
I think I've ever seen

You mix my drink
With a can of Red Devil lye
You mix my drink
With a can of Red Devil lye
Then you sit right down
Watch me, hoping I might die

(Let Me Up) I've Had Enough

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

When I fell for you, baby,
I really met my match
You use me, abuse me,
but I keep comin' back
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

It never seems to matter,
what we fight about
I'm the one who winds up,
down for the count
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

(Chorus:)
I love ya, I want ya,
just like I did before
I need ya, but if I leave ya,
it's 'cause I just can't take no more

Somehow you remember,
every little thing that I've done
So baby, I surrender,
I've lost and you have won
Let me up, baby, I've had enough

I love ya, I want ya,
just like I did before
I need ya, but if I leave ya,
it's 'cause I just can't take no more

One Foot On The Path

soundclip


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

You say, "Come over baby, come talk to me"
Then you drive me so crazy,
I can't hardly see
If this keeps goin' on,
I might just leave and not come back
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got one foot on the path

Well you beg me to stay,
then you order me to go
All this up and down,
is wear and tear on my soul
I'm wonderin' if our future,
is gonna look just like our past
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got one foot on the path

Now I love you, baby,
don't get me wrong
But this heart of mine,
may not be that strong
You got me on your line,
reel me in or throw me back
I got one foot in your doorway,
I got on foot on the path

You'd best thing about it, baby,
but don't take too long
If we can't get it right,
I'll just be movin' on
I can't wait forever,
for us to get this thing on track
I got one foot in your doorway, baby,
I got on foot on the path

Riverside

by Kevin Bowe
recording of 1995
from
Ledbetter Heights (Giant 24621), copyright notice

Seen her get up, seen her go down,
down to the riverside
Seen her jump into the river and drown,
down to the riverside
People do just what they will,
don't matter to the river, it's running still

Sun come up, sun go down,
down to the riverside
Sun jump into the river and drown,
down to the riverside
Every day just like the last,
we sit and watch the water pass

Came a day the built a bridge,
down to the riverside
Over the way, on top of the ridge,
down to the riverside
Built a bridge for people to cross,
but every other day, someone jumping off

You might think some boys they got it made,
down to the riverside
They got the money and the women and a place in the shade,
down to the riverside
That ain't no way to ease the pain,
can't listen to the river when it calls your name

Shame, Shame, Shame

soundclip


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

(Chorus:)
Shame, shame, shame,
shame on me for loving you
Shame, shame, shame,
shame on me for loving you
You came and you went,
what's this poor boy to do

I tried, yes I tried,
and you took everything I owned
I tried, yes I tried,
and you took everything I owned
Oh, little girl I wonder,
was your love to me just on loan

Shame, shame, shame,
shame on me for loving you
Shame, shame, shame,
shame on me for loving you
You came and you went,
what's this poor boy to do
