All In A Day


by Rod Hicks
recording of 1969

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

When days are gray that's the murmur of the day
When days are blue that's a part of it too
When days are cold then your love calls
It's all in a day, it's all in a day
All in a day, baby
All in a day, all in a day, all in a day

When days are gray it gets a man on his way
When days are blue make a man very true
When days are cold then your lover come to call
It's all in a day, let me tell you
It's all in a day
All in a day, baby, all in a day

If days are gray make a man want to play
If days are blue don't you try to tell me what to do
When days are cold then your lover come to call
All in a day, it's all in a day
All in a day, let me tell you now
All in a day
Oh, baby, came to gray, came to blue, oh
All in a day, all in a day, baby
All in a day, wait for us tomorrow
All in a day
Oh, all in a day

All These Blues

soundclip


traditional
recording of 1966

from East-West (Elektra 2-7315), copyright notice

When you have these blues and there's someone you're about to lose
There'll be a time, yeah, you can't sleep at night
She won't believe in you, oh, if you don't treat her right

I say, everyday, when the sun is almost down
You remember when your baby left the sound
Some people were born to lose, that's why lovers have the blues

I say, everyday, about five you'll hang your head and cry
That it's the time when your baby said goodbye
And you wanted to put your traveling shoes on
Yeah, you feel like crying when you get these kind blues
Yeah, all these blues, I said all these blues now

Blues With A Felling

soundclip

 

by Walter Jacobs a.k.a. Little Walter
recording of 1965

from The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (Elektra 7294-2 or 7559-60547-2), copyright notice

Blues with a feeling that's what I have today
Blues with a feeling that's what I have today
I've got to find my baby if it takes all night and day

What a lonesome feeling when you're by yourself
What a lonesome feeling when you're by yourself
Yes, the one that you're loving has gone off with someone else

Well, you know I love you baby
Wonder the reason why
Gone and left me baby
Left me here to cry

Blues with a feeling that's what I have today
Blues with a feeling that's what I have today
I've got to find my baby if it takes all night and day

What a lonesome feeling when you're by yourself
What a lonesome feeling when you're by yourself
Yeah, the one that you're loving has gone off with someone else

Well, you know I love you baby
Wonder the reason why
You're gone and left me baby
Left me here to cry

Blues with a feeling that's what I have today
I've got to find my baby if it takes all night and day

Born In Chicago

soundclip

 

by Nick Gravenites
recording of 1965

from The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (Elektra 7294-2 or 7559-60547-2), copyright notice

I was born in Chicago in nineteen and forty-one
I was born in Chicago in nineteen and forty-one
Well, my father told me, "Son, you had better get a gun"

Well, my first friend went down when I was seventeen years old
Well, my first friend went down when I was seventeen years old
Well, there's one thing I could say about that boy, "You gotta go"

Well, my second friend went down when I was twenty one years, baby
Well, my second friend went down when I was twenty one years, baby
Well, there's one thing I could say about that boy, "You got it babe"

Well, my blues are alright if there's someone left to play the game
Well, my blues are alright if there's someone left to play the game
All my friends are going and these years don't seem the same
Oh, they just don't seem the same, baby

Buddy's Advice

 

by Howard Buzzy Feiten
recording of 1969

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

When you bumped into me on a crowded avenue
I knew I couldn't let you slide
I knew that sooner or later I bet that you'd just keep on waiting on it
You'd run out of places to hide

Well, I've been waiting on you, yeah, for two long years
Counting on my buddy's advice
Baby, you bumped into somebody who was quicker than me
So my buddy's keeping you on ice
Um, baby

Well, I saw you at the laundromat the other day, baby
Washing somebody's clothes
Oh, there must be some dirty business going on
'Cause I quit smelling like a rose

Well, I've been waiting on you, yeah, for two long years
Counting on my buddy's advice
Baby, you bumped into somebody who was quicker than me
So my buddy's keeping you on ice
Um, baby, come on now, kick it!

Well, you might think that I've got a hole in my head
Counting on my buddy so long
I'm gonna get me a forty-four to set things right
Just as long as I sing this song

Except You

 

by Jerry Ragovoy
recording of 1969

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

Thought I had you in the palm of my hand
'Cause you said I was your loving man
Thought I was the king of the world
'Cause you told me you'd be my girl
But that was a long time ago
When in winter the grass was green
Nothing seem the way it seem
Except you, except you

Thought I was ahead of my time
Love was all I had on my mind
But that was a long time ago
When at night I saw the sun
Nothing and, oh, nothing
Except you, except you, babe

You have dreams and schemes
But life was a burning cinder
All I needed was you, out of sight
And I can tell her, ooh

Look at all the things that I own
A house, a car, a paid up loan
Flowers blooming in my yard
And I knew it wouldn't be so hard
But that was a long time ago

When the rain was so fresh and clear
All I wanted was right here
Except you, babe
Except you, except you, babe
Ooh, except you, ooh, babe

Get Out Of My Life, Woman

soundclip

 

by Allen Toussaint
recording of 1966

from East-West (Elektra 2-7315), copyright notice

Get out of my life woman, you don't love me no more
Get out of my life woman, you don't love me no more
Get out of my life woman, you don't want me no more

Get out of my eyes teardrops, I've got to see my way around
Get out of my eyes teardrops, I've got to see my way around
Get out of my eyes teardrops, I got heartaches by the pound

Get out of my way woman, I've got to move all alone
Get out of my way woman, I've got to move all alone
Get out of my way woman, I've got to move all alone

Get out of my life woman, you don't love me no more
Get out of my life woman, you don't love me no more
Get out of my life woman, you don't want me no more

I Got A Mind To Give Up Living

soundclip

 

traditional
recording of 1966

from East-West (Elektra 2-7315), copyright notice

I've got a mind to give up living, and go shopping instead
I've got a mind to give up living, and go shopping instead
Pick me up a tombstone, and be pronounced dead

Well, I read your letter this morning, that was on your place in bed
Oh, when I read your letter this morning, that was on your place in bed
That's when I decided that I'd be better off dead
Oh, yeah!

When I read your letter this morning, that was on your place in bed
Yes, when I read your letter this morning, that was on your place in bed
That's when I had decided that I'd be better off dead

It read, "There is no use looking or ever hoping, or ever hoping to get me back"
"Oh, no use looking, baby or ever hoping to get me back
Because it's all over now and, baby, you can bet on that"
Oh, yeah!

Keep On Moving

 

by Paul Butterfield
recording of 1969

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

Really if I keep on moving much longer
Baby, I don't know how much longer I can last
I've got to be home sometime tomorrow
Early my woman, mmm, with my arms to rest

Well there ain't, oh, nobody here
Baby, there ain't nobody talking
Yeah, and if I knew where to leave this town
Baby, I'd be on, on way where I been
Oh, loving baby, you know it ain't too easy
Yeah, but without it, oh, I know yeah, we'd be lost
You know I've got to go
Ooh, tomorrow by my woman, yeah, oh, yeah
Any loss, yes, my sweet baby

Well, if you've seen, yeah, go up to my momma, yeah
Well, she said stay home, yeah, or you'll be straying
Well, I'm on my way leaving
I hope my woman, mmm, doesn't say it's too late
