Slow Ride

soundclip


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

Well it’s warm inside,
let’s take a midnight drive
I wanna show ya, yeah, really show ya
It’s an open road,
let’s see how far it goes
I wanna show ya, yeah, really show ya

We’re high flyin’ low
Don’t you wanna go,
on a slow ride

Well it’s cold outside,
but there’s fire in your eyes
I wanna hold you, baby let me hold you
I won’t lose my nerve,
on those dangerous curves
When we get rollin’, oh really rollin’

I say high flyin’ low
Don’t you wanna go,
on a slow ride
Slow ride

Yeah slide on in, don’t stop...?
Let’s get movin’, oh really movin’
Won’t you hold on time we can make it all night
Let’s get movin’, oh really movin’

I say high flyin’ low
Don’t you wanna go,
on a slow ride
Slow ride
Slow ride

The King's Highway

soundclip


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

Walkin' down,
the king's highway
A paper bag in my hand,
nothin' else but my clothes I got on
But I ain't a lookin' back,
I ain't a lookin' back

I blame it on that midnight girl,
a wicked spell she casts
She pulled me in with her lip but I,
but I ain't a lookin' back
I ain't a lookin' back

Oh what a tangle,
when she weeps
I was a losin' my mind,
starin' down the barrel of a gun
It's just a matter of time
Yeah

True Lies

soundclip


by Kenny Wayne Shepherd / Danny Tate
recording of 1997
from
Trouble Is (Revolution/Warner Brothers 24689), copyright notice

Where do you go after midnight,
when all the doors should be closed
Your alibis just don’t sound right,
I asked but nobody knows
Then you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies

Someone’s been sleepin’ in my bed,
this room don’t smell like you and me
Someone’s been sneakin’ out the window,
do you think I’m too blind too see
When you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies,
it was a clever disguise
But, girl I’m gettin’ wise,
to your true lies

Well, you been doin’ this so long now,
you’re thinkin’ it’s the truth
I guess it don’t seem so wrong if it,
ain’t bein’ done to you
Gotta lot to learn, baby,
you can’t keep it down
When the word gets in the wind,
then it’s bound to blow back around

Girl, can you give me a reason,
I bet you don’t know even know why
‘Cause I can’t figure out what you’re thinkin’,
or what is your tiyn’ to justify
When you look me in the eyes,
and make it sound so very nice
With your true lies,
it was a clever disguise
But, girl I’m gettin’ wise,
to your true lies
Yeah, you can laugh, you can cry,
but, girl, I just can’t buy,
your true, true lies

What's Goin' Down

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

Time's a wastin' now
And I ain't got no more time to play
Everything is changin' now
Pretty soon it's all gone away

Can we make the changes now
You know there's no other way
Now's the time, the time is now
It's not the why, it's just the how

(Chorus:)
Have you looked around my friend
And really seen what's goin' down
Take a look into the sky
And lay your hand upon the ground
It is of you good neighbor
I ask a lifelong favor
It is my faith I put in you

Can we make the changes now
You know there's no other way
Now's the time, the time is now
It's not the why, it's just the how

(Chorus:)
Have you looked around my friend
And really seen what's goin' down
Take a look into the sky
And lay your hand upon the ground
It is of you good neighbor
I ask a lifelong favor
It is my faith I put in you
