No Amount Of Loving

 

by Paul Butterfield
recording of 1969

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

When I was down, babe, you reached out your hands to guide
When I was feeling so sorry, I've been hurt so deep inside
I realize no amount of love, yeah, can take away those lies, no, baby

Yeah, tried to catch your dog, baby, but the dog was mean
Came to your door, it was closed, yeah, you put a wound in my shoulder
For something to lean on, baby, how much it hurts, you know the load
Oh, deep inside, you wouldn't be too wrong, somewhere along the road

Yeah, all things, baby, catch up with you
Watch yourself
Well, I'll be around
No amount of love, can take away those lies
I'm taking them away now

I realize no amount of love, yeah
Can take away those lies, no baby
I'm taking them away

Oh, everything you gave me, baby, you want to take it back
There's one story, darling, that's out of sight
Don't want nothing from you, woman, I didn't need no schooling
Until a lot less amount of loving you, baby, for me to see the fool

I realize no amount of loving, can take away those lies
Can't take 'em away now, I realize, baby, not any amount of loving
Can take away those lies, can't take 'em away now, take 'em away
Oh, take 'em away now, take 'em away, babe
No amount of love, yeah
Um, baby

Two Trains Running

 

by Davis
recording of 1966

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

Well, there's two trains running
But there's not one going my way
Yeah, when one runs at midnight
Are they just for a day
Are they just for a day
Are they just for a day

I went down to my baby's house
And I'd sat down on the steps
Said, "Come on in here, baby
My old man just left
He just now left
Oh, my old man left"

Yes, I wish I was a catfish
Swimming in the deep blue sea
And all you pretty women
Fishing after me
Fishing after me
Fishing after me

I went down to my baby's house
And I sat down on your steps
Said, "Come on in here, baby
My old man just left
He just now left
Oh, my old man left"

Well, she's long and she's tall
And she shakes like a willow tree
Say she's no good
She's alright with me
She's alright with me
She's alright with me
Oh, little girl's alright
Oh, yeah, she gives me loving
In the morning
Little girl, loving, baby
She's alright with me
She's alright
She's alright, uh

Woke up this morning I looked around for my shoes
You know I had those mean old walking blues
Yeah, I woke up this morning I looked around for my shoes
Girl, I had those, uh, mean old walking blues

Some people tell me that worried blues ain't bad
It's the worst old feeling I ever had
People tell me that worried blues ain't bad
It's the worst old feeling, uh child, I ever had

Looks you ran to the ocean and the ocean runs to the sea
If I don't find my baby, don't bury me
Went to the ocean and the ocean went to the sea
Yeah, if I don't find my baby, oh yeah, don't bury me

Minutes seem like hours and hours seem like days
Since my baby started her low down ways
Minutes seem like hours and hours seem like days
Since my baby, uh, started her low down ways

You know I had those mean old walking blues
Yeah, I woke up this morning I looked around for my shoes
Yeah, you know I had those, uh, mean old walking blues

by Jerry Ragovoy

from Keep On Moving (Elektra 74053), copyright notice

In a certain lonely railroad station
Search my mind for an explanation
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

Chicken man, did you see my woman?
She's got green eyes and long hair that's golden
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

It's supposed to be Mary
Leaving on this train
???
???
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

Yeah, baby, loving's sweeter than honey
You're now gone with all my money now
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

I've been trying not to, baby
So far to tell me some news
I can't do without that woman
I paid my dues, yeah, all right now
Where's she gone, that woman now
Probably with a man carrying a big guitar
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

Took advance on a train around
I'm gonna lay myself on the ground
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

I want to know, baby, please won't you tell me now
Yeah, yeah, tell me, baby
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

Gonna keep on, gonna keep on searching, yeah
Where did my baby go?
Where did my baby go?

Would somebody, please, talk to her now
Where did my baby go?
Baby, please

Oh, can't leave you, baby
Gonna keep on

Where did my baby go?
Yeah
Oh, where is my baby, tell me now
