My, my, my baby, you're my cup of tea

You got a motor like a brand new car

Yes, yes, yes something in your sexy ways
Yes, yes, yes gonna love you all of my days

You got a motor like a brand new car
So start it up for me

Start it up, start it up you make me feel like romancin'
Start it up, start it up you make me feel like dancin'
You got a motor like a brand new car
So start it up for me

The way you move such a finely tuned machine mmm,
Such a solid groove the best I've ever seen

You got a motor like a brand new car
So start it up for me

The way you move such a finely tuned machine yes,
Such a solid groove the best I've ever seen

You got a motor like a brand new car
Baby start it up for me

Start it up, start it up
You make me feel like romancin'
Start it up, start it up
You make me feel like dancin'

You got a motor like brand new car
So start it up for me
Start it up

Tell Me I'm Your Man

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1992

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

Tell me, tell me I'm your man
There's a need inside of me for love and understanding
Standing at your door and feeling in trouble
Don't turn away, baby I'm your man

Hold me, hold me until I smile
I need to feel the touch of your hand
If only for a little while once upon a time we made a promise
Don't turn away, baby I'm your man

All that love, when love was new we held our hearts in each other's hands
I gotta love that flows with the seasons baby I'm your man
Kiss me, kiss me a long, long time
I need to feel your lips pressing up close to mine
Once upon a time we made a promise
Don't turn away, 'cause baby I'm your man

All that love, when love was new we held our hearts in each other's hands
I gotta love that flows with the seasons
Baby I'm your man
Tell me, tell me I'm your man

There's a need inside of me for love and understanding
Standing at your door and feeling in trouble
Don't turn away, baby I'm your man
Ooh baby, I'm your man

Tired Of Talkin'

soundclip

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1995 resp. 1998

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004) & The Authorized Bootleg (Blue Thumb 7013), copyright notice

Baby I'm out of breath, we're talkin' our selves to death
And nothing seem to change, maybe it's best if we parted
It's like the blind leading the blind,
we're even further behind than when we started

I'm tired of talkin', guess it's time to go
Baby I'm so confused and feeling a little bruised
When all we do is fight, we can't help but feel down hearted
It's like the blind leading the blind
Even further behind then when we started

I'm tired of talkin', guess it's time to go
Baby I'm out of breath, we're talkin' ourselves to death
And nothing seem to change, maybe it's best if we parted
It's like the blind leading the blind
Even further behind then when we started
I'm tired of talkin', guess it's time to go

Top Of The Hill

soundclip

 

by Robben Ford / K. McKormick
recording of 1995 resp. 1998

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004) & The Authorized Bootleg (Blue Thumb 7013), copyright notice

No need to hide it, or to deny it,
I'll never buy it 'cause I've learned your ways
Come hook or crook you're gonna make it rich
You're gonna scratch it if you got the itch
And the people will know your name
And they'll do your will
At the top of your game
Your the man, the man on top of the hill

You like to tell me, things to compel me
Your gonna sell me, on your best intent
I know your really after fortune and fame
And greed is greed by any other name
You'll get what you want I know
And have time to kill
And every place you go
Your the man, the man on top of the hill

You've got ambition, a strong ambition
Your on a mission to be number one
What ever it takes to get what you deserve
No one can stand against that kind of nerve
And after they've nailed you in
They'll remember you still, the one who just had to win
He's the man, the man on top of the hill
Your the man, way up on top of the hill

Trying To Do The Right Thing

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1993

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

Your eyes look out at me and I know what they see
The man who's devoted to you, tryin' to do the right thing

Your gaze reflects my heart and that's the place we start
To be devoted to, tryin' to do the right thing

The simple things, they are the magic
In a world of constant change this we know and it's the road of devotion
That's the one less chosen, in an impulsive world
We could shine a light with our love

It's in your heart and mind and I'll return in kind
To be devoted to, tryin' to do the right thing

The simple things, they are the magic
In a world of constant change this we know and it's the road of devotion
That's the one less chosen, in an impulsive world
We could shine a light with our love

Your eyes look out at me and I know what they see
The man who's devoted to you, tryin' to do the right thing
Tryin' to do the right thing

When I Leave Here

soundclip

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1995 resp. 1998

from Handful Of Blues (Blue Thumb 7004) & The Authorized Bootleg (Blue Thumb 7013), copyright notice

Time was baby when you treated me right
You used to stay at home, now you're stayin' out at night

Hey when I leave here, and you find what it means to be alone
You will cry for me, and pray one day that I'll come back home

Yeah you was spoiled ever since you was a child
Your mother and father let you run wild

Hey when I leave here, and you find what it means to be alone
You will cry for me, and pray that I'll come back home

When you were down, you treated me like your special friend
Now you treat me like your little boy,and it's got to end

Say you was blessed, by the stars up above
You can take care of yourself now , and you don't need my love

Hey when I leave here, and you find what it means to be alone
You'll cry for me and prey one day that I come back home

Worried Life Blues

soundclip

 

by Maceo Merriweather
recording of 1993

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

Oh Lordy, Lord
Oh Lordy, Lord
It hurts me so bad, for us to part
Someday baby, ain't gonna worry my life anymore

You're on my mind every place I go and how much I'll miss you
You'll never know, someday baby ain't gonna worry my life anymore

Do you remember lyin' on my bed, drinkin' all of that whiskey, talkin' all out of your head
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry my life anymore

Goodbye baby, I'm leavin' you now
Don't make much difference, 'cause you never meant me no good anyhow
Someday baby, ain't gonna worry my life anymore

You Cut Me To The Bone

 

by Robben Ford
recording of 1992

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

Nobody knows when it all began, this kind of trouble between a woman and man
You know the nature of love brings pain
and you tell that you never want to feel that way again
and I seem to be at the heart of all of your problems you cut me to the bone baby

You cut me to the bone
You know how to make a man feel alone the way you cut me to the bone

You've gone a long way from loving me
and now you're leaving me in misery forget about it,
all that we've been through you're gonna do the things you want to do
and you don't want to hear a single word I'm saying

You cut me to the bone, baby, you cut me to the bone
You know how to make a man feel alone the way you cut me to the bone

Lost in a dream, that's what you are one day you'll wake up
and see you went too far along with the sunshine
There will be some rain but it was never meant to be in vain
and you don't want to hear a single word about it

You cut me to the bone, baby, you cut me to the bone
You know how to make a man feel alone the way you cut me to the bone
You know how to make a man feel alone the way you cut me to the bone
