Gotta Good Friend

soundclip


by Robert Johnson
recording of 1991
from
Blues Bag (Provogue PRD 70282 or Bullseye Blues 9519), copyright notice

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
You gotta love her with your spare time, love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby, I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby, I can't see no reason why
Anytime I think about her, I just wring my hands and cry

Wonder could I bear apologize, or would she fix a fight with me, I wonder
Hmmmmmm, would the little girl fix a fight with me
She's a kindhearted woman, sweet as a girl friend can be

Hmmmmmm, baby, I may be right or wrong
Hmmmmmm, baby do you think, I may be right ay wrong
Watch your close friend, girl, then your enemies can't do you harm

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
You gotta give her all your spare time, love and treat her right

from
World Wide Open (Watermelon 1053), copyright notice

Well I'm gonna get up in the morning
Hit the Highway 49
I'm gonna get up in the morning
Hit the Highway 49
I've been looking for my woman
Lord don't think she can't be found

Melvina my woman
She out on the Highway 49
Melvina my woman
She out on the Highway 49
I'm gonna get up in the morning
Roll on down the line

I believe, I believe, I believe I´ll dust my bed
I believe, I believe, I believe I´ll dust my bed
Out on the Highway 49
I have walked till I am dead

I got the blues this morning
Rollin´ into Jackson town
I got the blues this morning
I'm rollin´ into Jackson town
I've been looking for my baby
Lord don't think the girl can't be found

Long tall momma
She don't pay me no mind
Yeah long tall momma
She don't pay me no mind
All she wanna do
Walk the Highway 49

Hoo Doo Ball

soundclip


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

Over on the corner is the juju man
He can put a monkey paw in your hand
And if you want your future told
The gypsy woman's got the house next door

Yonder goes the hoo-doo rhythm man
Shakes them bones in the hoo-doo band
He's headed down to the union hall
He gonna have a Hoo Doo Ball
Gonna be rockin´ at the Hoo Doo Ball
He gonna rock at the Hoo Doo Ball

Tangle Eye told Jungle Jim
Tell Memphis Minnie and Lightnin´ Slim
And don't forget old Speckle Red
Cadillac George and Dime Store Fred

Yonder goes the hoo-doo rhythm man
Shakes them bones in the hoo-doo band
He's headed down to the union hall
He gonna have a Hoo Doo Ball
Gonna be rockin´ at the Hoo Doo Ball
He gonna rock at the Hoo Doo Ball

Do the black cat boogie all night long
Screamin´ Jay gonna sing his song
He's gonna put a spell

Hurry, Hurry

soundclip


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

Hurry hurry everywhere you go
You know it's such a shame
Worry worry that's all you know
It's hard to live that way

Can't you see that you got yourself
Tied up in a knot
You try to hide it but I think you know
You're all dressed up with no place to go

So take a minute to catch your breath
You live in such a rush
The world a keep turnin´ if you stop to rest
Don't have to always push

Can't you see that you got yourself
Tied up in a knot
You try to hide it but I think you know
You're all dressed up with no place to go

Don't have to rise ´cause the rooster crows
Give yourself a break
It's alright to move a little slow
There'll be another day

Can't you see that you got yourself
Tied up in a knot
You try to hide it but I think you know
You're all dressed up with no place to go

I'm wild about you
But you don't know
I'm wild about you
I can't let it slow
You love your man
And I love you
You live your life
I live for you

You know that some day
I can make you understand
I'm wild about you
I'm wild about you
But till that day comes
I´ll just stand in the shadows of love

I'm wild about you
But I can't stay
I'm wild about you
I watch every day
You love your man
And I love you
He's my best friend
So what can I do

Courts Of Lulu (Provogue PRD 70452 or Bullseye Blues 9541),
copyright notice

I've tried to make you love me
I've tried to win your heart
I cried over you
I'm tired, I'm through
I know you don't want me
And I know you don't care
I tried to make you love me
I tried to win your heart

Think I´ll move
A little further down the road
Think I´ll move
A little further down the road
When I leave this time darlin´
Well I won't be back no more
I tried

I've tried to make you love me
I've tried to win your heart
I tried everyday
And I cried every way
I know you don't love me
And I know you don't care
I tried to make you love me
I tried to win your heart

Think I´ll move
A little further down the road
Think I´ll move
A little further down the road
When I leave this time darlin´
Well I won't be back no more
I have tried

I was wrong to think that you were right
But now I'm strong and now I'm ready to fight
You can kick scream but I won't move
It don't matter what you do
I'm gonna rock to the beat of my own drum
I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun

 

 

Up all night but I ain't losin´ sleep
I made a promise to myself
That I'm gonna keep
You can cry cry beg me please
I gotta will like Hercules
I'm gonna rock to the beat of my own drum

I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun

I'm be here after you are gone
And I swear it won't be too long
So bye bye you gotta go
I ain't got time for you no more
I'm gonna rock to the beat of my own drum

I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun
I ain't jumpin´ the gun

Life Is Just A Circle

soundclip


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

The world's not picture perfect
And the streets ain't paved with gold
And sometimes life gets a little too hard you know
You take the good times with the bad times
The heaven with the hell
And sometimes you just got to draw from the wishing well

I said life is just a circle
A ride on a merry go round
You got to roll with the punches
You got to move with the ups and downs
Life is just a circle
Loop-de-loop round and round
One day you are the king of the bill
The next day you're tumblin´ down

You take one step to the front line
Then it's two steps to the back
And sometimes it seems like all the cards are stacked
Then from out of nowhere
Good luck come your way
And all your troubles vanish in the haze

I said life is just a circle
A ride on a merry go round
You got to roll with the punches
You got to move with the ups and downs
Life is just a circle
Loop-de-loop round and round
One day you are the king of the bill
The next day you're tumblin´ down

Loop-de-loop round and round
Loop-de-loop round and round
Just when you think you're movin´ up
Your life goes spinnin´ round

I said life is just a circle
A ride on a merry go round
You got to roll with the punches
You got to move with the ups and downs
Life is just a circle
Loop-de-loop round and round
One day you are the king of the bill
The next day you're tumblin´ down

Life Without You

recording of 1995
from
Muddy Springs Road (Watermelon 1036), copyright notice

I call your name
I call your name but you're not there
Life without you
Life with you is so hard to bear

My jealous heart drove you away
And now I must suffer for my mistake

I call your name
I call your name but you're not there
Life without you
Life with you is so hard to bear

I wake at night screamin´ and cryin´
Since you've been gone I just feel like dying

I call your name
I call your name but you're not there
Life without you
Life with you is so hard to bear

Blues Bag (Provogue PRD 70282 or Bullseye Blues 9519), copyright notice

I got me girl named Bessie,

Got a woman downtown, I don't know her name
That's alright with me, 'cause I'm a lover man, baby
I love 'm all you see

There's so many women Lord I'm lovin',

I've been cut, shot, badly beaten,
it's a wonder I ain't dead
'Cause I'm a lover man, baby
I love 'm all you see
I love 'm and I leave'm,
that's the way it's gotta be

So many women, keeping me busy
I'm spread so thin that it makes me dizzy
Got women in the country, women in the town
Better believe I ain't gonna let them down
I'm a lover man, baby
I love 'm all you see
I love 'm and I leave 'm,
that's the way it's gotta be

I got me girl named Bessie,
got two girls named Mary
Got a woman downtown, I don't know her name
But that's alright with me, I'm a lover man, baby
Love'm all you see
I love 'm and I leave 'm,
that's the way it's gotta be, yeah

Yeah, I love 'm and I leave 'm,
that's the way it's gotta be

Loverman, ha ha ha

Low Down Dirty Blues

soundclip


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

Robert Johnson was the king of the blues
He was the best around
I was standing right beside him
On the night the deal went down

Hopped a freight with Johnny Shines
Rode down to New Orleans
We walked the back streets together
You know the man was born to sing

Allow me to introduce myself
I'm what you get when you got nothin´ left
I'm the pain the trouble and the truth
I am the low down dirty blues
I am the low down dirty blues

Followed Mighty Wolf to Memphis
To Sam Phillips and the Risin´ Sun
He put the dust of the delta
In every word of the songs he sung

Muddy Waters was the king pin
The head hocho and the big hoo-doo
I was standing there beside him
When he electrified the blues

Allow me to introduce myself
I'm what you get when you got nothin´ left
I'm the pain the trouble and the truth
I am the low down dirty blues
I am the low down dirty blues

Mail Order Mojo

soundclip


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

You got a mail order mojo
Now you think you hot
Foolin´ round with something
When you know you ought to stop
You saw it in a magazine
You sent for it by mail
Advertisement promised guaranteed to never fail

You got a mail order mojo
It's a brown paper hojo
You got a mail order mojo
Get your powers postage due

And now you run around
With your little bag of tricks
Trying to stir something girl
Now just to get your kicks
Your mail order mojo is causing quite a mess
Your foolin´ round with something
When you ought to let it rest
