Black Bottom

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1995
from
Muddy Springs Road (Watermelon 1036), copyright notice

In the shadow of the city where the sun don't shine
Where it's a constant struggle just to stay alive
You hear a shot ring out,
somebody else has died

Ain't no good in Black Bottom,
it's an evil place
Where a man can vanish,
without a single trace

Talk about the blues,
people down there got ´em
'Cause you ain't gotta chance,
if you're down in Black Bottom

If you live in Black Bottom,
you don't walk at night
'Cause some cat might cut you,
just to spark a fight

Talk about the blues,
people down there got ´em
'Cause you ain't gotta chance,
if you're down in Black Bottom

Booger Boy

copyright notice

I'm big I'm loud,
I can really raise some dust
I'm big I'm loud,
I can really raise some dust
And when I move,
all the women start to fight and fuzz

Shim sham shimmy,
I'm your boogie-woogie booger boy1
Shim sham shimmy.
I'm your boogie-woogie booger boy
You can wind me up,
I'm like a bright new shiny toy

Turn me a-loose,
I'll tear this whole joint down
Turn me a-loose,
and I'll tear this whole joint down
Cause when my feet hit the floor,
I can really go to town

Shim sham shimmy,
I'm your boogie-woogie booger boy
Shim sham shimmy,
I'm your boogie-woogie booger boy
You can wind me up,
I'm like a bright new shiny toy

__________
Note 1: booger boy , bogeyman (a monstrous imaginary figure used in scaring or threatening children or a terrifying or dreaded person or thing) OR just a piece of dried nasal mucus (snot that is).

When you feel like this now life just ain't no fun, yeah

Jump back baby keep your big mouth shut
Don't say nothin´ cause you've run outta luck

You poke the stick at the monkey just one more time
You gonna drawback begin to scream and cry

You better jump back baby while you still can
I'm warning you baby I'm a dangerous man

Do It For Daddy

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1992
from
Courts Of Lulu (Provogue PRD 70452 or Bullseye Blues 9541),
copyright notice

When you shake like a willow tree,
you got something that worries me
When you do the rang-dang-do,
I can't take my eyes off you

When you dance I'm your fool,
I just want to watch you move
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy

Raise my hands, fall on my knees,
you got your spell on me
You got the power to light my fire
You got the power to drive me wild

When you shake jungle style,
you got the power to drive me wild
When you dance the blind can see,
you make the dead raise up to speak

The way you move I come unwound,
feel my heart begin to pound
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy

Raise my hands, fall on my knees,
you got your spell on me
You got the power to light my fire
You got the power to drive me wild
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy
Do it do it do it for daddy

Enough Is Enough

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1996
from
World Wide Open (Watermelon 1053), copyright notice

I've been down this road so many times,
I ain't no fool I can read the signs
I have learned not to count on you,
I've been burned and I've been used

You paint a pretty picture in front of me,
you say look but I don't see
I always pay for your mistakes,
I've taken all I can take

Enough is enough
I said enough is enough
I'm giving you up
I tell you now that enough is enough

I don't know what it is you want,
damned if I do and damned if I don't
I use to be your pride and joy,
but now I'm just your whippin´ boy

Now I've got to run just to save myself
I gave it all now there's nothin´ left
I always pay for your mistakes
I've taken all that I can take

Everywhere I Go

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1995
from
Muddy Springs Road (Watermelon 1036), copyright notice

I walked all the way from Jackson,
down to Crystal Springs
I walked all the way from Jackson,
down to Crystal Springs
Nobody seem to know me so,
I walked to New Orleans

I went down to the Dixie Drug Store,
just to have my future told
I went down to the Dixie Drug Store,
just to have my future told
The gypsy woman said,
"Man, you better grab your things and go"

There ain't but one thing in this world
Stays on my worried mind
There ain't but one thing in this world
Stays on my worried mind
Everywhere I go,
people treat me so unkind

Exactly What I Thought She'd Do

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1995
from
Muddy Springs Road (Watermelon 1036), copyright notice

I caught a glimpse of something pink
The smell of fancy French perfume
I couldn't talk, I couldn't think
I followed her across the room

She looked at me and I could see
This was something I should be up to
Later that night, when things got right
She did exactly what I thought she'd do

It only took a minute to get beyond the limit
Of any place I'd ever been
I thought that it was over, she tapped me on the shoulder
And then she went and did it again

I couldn't wait to tell the world
You won't believe this girl I met
When I awoke, she'd disappeared
I can't believe one night is all I get
But it's a fact a girl like that
Is too good to be true
I should have known, it wouldn't last
She did exactly what I thought she'd do

The crazy things that she'd do
Were just a little voodoo
For a country boy like me
She didn't mean to hurt me
My world went topsy turvy
She could have told me she was gonna leave

We're wearin' false faces
and it ain't even halloween
We're wearin' false faces
and it ain't even halloween
We're pretending but things ain't
what they seem

We're puttin' on that things ain't going wrong
We're puttin' on that things ain't going wrong
We're ignoring what's really going on

We're wearin' false faces for everyone to see
Our false faces are really scaring me
I'm sick and tired, it's a masquerade, yeah
We're wearin' false faces that's the game we play

Shuck-it, peel it
Shuck-it, peel it

Our false faces you know they just ain't real
Our false faces you know they just ain't real
I'm gonna shuck this mask,
that's the way I feel

We're wearin' false faces for everyone to see
Our false faces are really scaring me
I'm sick and tired, it's a masquerade, yeah
We're wearin' false faces that's the game we play

Fire In The House

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1996
from
World Wide Open (Watermelon 1053), copyright notice

There's a storm ragin´ over the bayou
And the Mississippi River goin´ wild
The thunder sounds like it's gonna crack the sky wide open
Weather man's talking on the T.V.
Says God bless the child
Lots of good people on these back roads really hurtin´

Everywhere you go you feel danger in the air
There's lightning striking on an old tin roof
I wish the world was electric proof
Gonna be awhile before these storm clouds disappear

There's a fire in the house
Momma go and get the children
There's a fire in the house
Like the whole world's burning down
There's a fire in the house
And you know we need a little water
Something's gotta change
Whoa let it rain

Sunday morning do righters
Quick to say what's going wrong
Saturday night they leave their religion at home
They're the first to point their fingers
And the last ones to help you along

There's a storm ragin´ over the country
And the muddy water runs so deep
The thunder sounds like it's gonna crack the sky wide open

Everywhere you go you feel danger in the air
There's lightning striking on an old tin roof
I wish the world was electric proof
Gonna be awhile before these storm clouds disappear

Fire Walker

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes / Danny Tate
recording of 1992
from
Courts Of Lulu (Provogue PRD 70452 or Bullseye Blues 9541),
copyright notice

I'm a firewalker holy ghost talker
I'll walk the coals to prove it's true
I'm a firewalker holy ghost talker
I cross the flame to be with you

The fields on fire and the whole town's burnin´
Don't know what to do
'Cause the roofs fallin´ down
And the water quit runnin´
There's no one there to help you
The roads all closed the bridge has crumbled
Telephone line is dead
You can't get in, you can't get out
But baby it ain't over yet

I'm a firewalker holy ghost talker
I'll walk the coals to prove it's true
I'm a firewalker holy ghost talker
I cross the flame to be with you

I said hold on baby it won't be long
Gotta have a little faith in me
If it gets down to it I will walk right through it
Chase the devil to the deep blue sea

Get Hip

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1995
from
Muddy Springs Road (Watermelon 1036), copyright notice

Get hip better slow down
Get hip better slow down
Better give yourself a chance to take a real good look around

I know you got your red dress on
You know that I know something's going on wrong
I know that you're going out tonight
I know that you know I'm too tired to fight
I'm begging you baby don't throw our love away

I can't stand this up and down
You know it's like a ride on a merry go round
You keep my heart on a roller coaster ride
Carnival life can't keep us satisfied
I'm begging you baby don't throw our love away

Got My Heart Set On You

soundclip


by Kent "Omar" Dykes
recording of 1996
from
World Wide Open (Watermelon 1053), copyright notice

I got my heart set on you
Ain't nobody else will do
It's so very plain to see
You're the one that's meant for me

Ain't a thing that you can do
I got my heart set on you

It happened on the day we met
Now I just can't help myself
I'm gonna pull a monkey shine
Got what it takes to make you mine

Ain't a thing that you can do
I got my heart set on you

I got my heart set on you
Ain't nobody else will do
Take your doubts and lay ´em down
Feels so good when you're around

Ain't a thing that you can do
I got my heart set on you

I done had me a talk with St. Valentine
I told cupid to make you mine
Take out an arrow pull back his bow
Piece your heart and then you'll know

Ain't a thing that you can do
I got my heart set on you
Ain't a thing that you can do
I got my heart set on you
