Busted Up

soundclip


by Robben Ford
recording of 1993

from Mystic Mile (Stretch STD-1107), copyright notice

Busted up over you
Busted up over you
Well, you take what you want
and you leave the rest behind
That ain't too friendly
Busted up over you

Busted up over you
Busted up over you
Well, you open up the door
and you slam it in my face
That ain't too friendly
Busted up over you

Don't wanna do without your lovin'
Don't wanna do without the fun we had
Why you gotta be such a heartbreaker
You made me love you, now you're gone, gone, gone

Busted up over you
I'm busted up over you
Well, you tell me I'm the one
but you treat me like a fool
It's not too friendly
Busted up over you

Buy you a diamond ring
Buy you a diamond ring

Just do somthin' for you

Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

soundclip

 

by Bennie Benjamin / Sal Marcus / Gloria Caldwell
recording of 1995

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004), copyright notice

Baby, do you understand me now, sometimes I feel a little mad
And don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
when things go wrong your bound to see the bad

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh no, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby sometimes I'm so carefree with a joy that's hard to hide
And then sometimes it seems all I have to do is worry
and then you're bound to see the other side
I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh no, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem mean to you, I want you to know
that I never mean to take it out on you
'Cause life has it's problems and I get my share
and that's one thing that I never mean to do, 'cause I love you

Oh oh baby, don't you know I'm human
I have faults just like any other one
And sometimes I find myself alone and regretting
some foolish little sinful thing I've done

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh no, please don't let me be misunderstood

Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying

soundclip

 

by J. Greene
recording of 1998

from The Authorized Bootleg (Blue Thumb 7013), copyright notice

Don't let the sun catch you crying,
crying at my front door
You done your daddy dirty
and he don't want you around here no more

Don't let the sun catch you crying,
lying at my back door
You done your daddy dirty
and he don't want you around here no more

You can cry, cry , cry
Yes, and baby, you can wail
Beat your head on the pavement
Hey, till the man come,
land you in jail

Don't let the sun catch you crying,
lying at my back door
You done your daddy dirty
and he don't want you around here no more

You can cry, cry , cry
Yes, and baby, you can wail
Beat your head on the pavement
Hey, till the man come,
land you in jail

Good Thing

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1995

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004), copyright notice

You cover your senses
You cover your eyes
You tell your self lies
It's not a good thing to do to yourself

Your looking so lonely
Your looking too thin
I can see your depression, see it settin in
It's not a good thing to do to yourself

I took a walk to the river, I watched the ships roll in and I thought of you driftin' like you do
Nobody's gonna save you from that life you lead but some body's waiting
So open your heart babe, open your mind and open your soul, yeah
Leave the past behind, it'd be a good thing to do for yourself

I took a walk to the mountain
I watched the birds fly high and I thought of you locked inside yourself
Nobody's gonna free you from that cage your in but some body's waiting

He Don't Play Nothin' But The Blues

soundclip

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1993

from Mystic Mile (Stretch STD-1107), copyright notice

Met a young man up in New York City,
don't carry a cap or a cane
Just an old guitar that he got from his daddy,
he showed him a little to play

He got family down in Texas,
spent time in New Orleans
Went his own way learnin' to play what he choose,
he don't play nothin' but the blues

People say that he was born like that,
playin' ever since he was 10
Got a funky sound and a funky way of talkin',
it's all the same to him
When he shows up you know he's gonna get down,
nobody's goin' nowhere
'Cause he'll blow your mind playin' just what he choose,
he don't play nothin' but the blues
Now play it!

Met a young man up in New York City,
don't carry a cap or a cane
Just an old guitar that he got from his daddy,

he don't play nothin' but the blues

Help The Poor

soundclip

 

by C. Singleton
recording of 1998

from The Authorized Bootleg (Blue Thumb 7013), copyright notice

Help the poor
Won't you help poor me
Have a heart baby, won't you, baby
Listen to my plea
Need all your love
I need your care
I need all of the love
You can spare
Help the poor
Help poor me

Say you will
Say you'll help me on
I can't make it no further
This way alone
Lost all my courage
When I found you
Got what I needed
To see me through
Help the poor
Help poor me

You're my inspiration
You can make me a king
If you don't come to my rescue
I'll never be anything
Help the poor
Help poor me
Have a heart baby, won't you, baby
Listen to my plea
Need all your love
I need your care
I need all of the love
You can spare
Help the poor
Help poor me

Help the poor
Won't you help poor me
Have a heart baby, won't you, baby
Listen to my plea
Need all your love
I need your care
I need all of the love
You can spare
Help the poor
Help poor me

I'm A Real Man

soundclip

 

by John Hiatt
recording of 1992

from Robben Ford & The Blue Line (Stretch STD-1102), copyright notice

I'm a real man, got some real guitar I'm a real man,
I don't even know where the boys are
I don't mean to frighten you little girl 'cause you're so sweet and nice
I don't need to tell you twice

I'm a real man I got to rock like a real man
Don't get no shock from that elevator music in your computer program
How'd you like to rock with a real man

Real man baby,
I ain't lyin' just thirty-one years old now and I don't mind dying you can put the voodoo on me
Girl ain't nothin' I can't dodge check out this Lincoln in my garage kids these days, talkin' about
These young folks they're just about as wild as Pollyanna after she growed up man,
after a hard day in the coal
Mine, I sure don't want to live just about as dangerous as a junior executive

I'm a real man
I got to rock like a real man
Don't get no shock from that elevator music in your computer program
How'd you like to rock with a real man

Every dollar I earn, I turn around and I burn and if I land in jail,
I know a whole lot of women willing to pay my
Bail you might think I'm just some fool on a boast
But people are already talkin' now from coast to coast this
Ain't Dan Rather talking, I ain't no president's son but I know how to have my fun

I'm a real man
I got to rock like a real man
Don't get no shock from that elevator music in your computer program
How'd you like to rock with a real man

I Don't Play

 

by Willie Dixon
recording of 1993

from Mystic Mile (Stretch STD-1107), copyright notice

Better listen to me, hear what I say
You want to hold my hand, baby squeeze it this way
Baby I don't play and I'll be your man one day

Don't you play it so cool, like you still in school
'Cause when you play with me, now I forget the rules
Baby I don't play and I'll be your man one day

Baby you're so young but you sure are bold
I know this can't be love but it sure might go
Hey baby, I don't play and I'll be your man one day

Hate to see you like this, sure are fine
A pretty girl like you, make me change my mind
Hey baby, I don't play and I'll be your man one day

I hate to see you like this, baby you're so fine
A pretty girl like you, make me change my mind
Hey baby, I don't play and I'll be your man one day
Baby, I don't play and I'll be your man one day
Hey!

I Just Want To Make Love To You

 

by Willie Dixon
recording of 1995

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004), copyright notice

I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want you to be true
I just want to make love to you

I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you

Well I can see by the way that you switch and walk
And I can tell by the way that you baby talk
And I know by the way that you treat your man
I wanna love you baby, it's a cryin' shame

I don't want you to bake my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want you cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you
