Superstition

soundclip


by Stevie Wonder
recording of 1986

from Live Alive (Epic EGK-40511) & The Real Deal: Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 (Sony 65873) & Pride and Joy, video (Epic/Sony 49069), copyright notice

Very superstitious, writing on the wall
Very superstitious, ladder's 'bout to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke that looking glass
Seven years of bad luck, good things in the past

When you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer, superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problem, get all that you can
Keep me in a daydream, keep me going strong
You don't want to save me, sad is my song

When you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer, superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious, nothing more to say
Very superstitious, devil's on his way
Thirteen month old baby, broke that looking glass
Seven years of bad luck, good things in the past

When you believe in things that you don't understand
You will suffer, superstition ain't the way

Let me tell you how it will be,
there's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small,
be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
if you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
if you take a walk, I'll tax your feet

Don't ask me what I want it for,

from Family Style (Epic ZK-46225), copyright notice

Woke up this morning I was all alone saw your picture by the telephone,

Operator help me please get thru to my baby way overseas,
time's a wastin' oh so fast
Hello baby tell me is that you I don't know what we're gonna do,
but for now I'm glad I got you on the line

Well it feels so fine knowing you're all right,
but you're miles away Lord it's not the same

Well I woke up this morning I was all alone saw your picture by the telephone,
I've been missing you baby oh so bad
I love you baby with all my might come on home and squeeze me tight,
long distance lovin's gonna drive me out of my mind

You know the sky, the sky's been cryin', can you see the tears roll down my nose

Tick Tock

chords

soundclip


by Jimmy Vaughan / Nile Rodgers / J.L. Williams
recording of 1990

from Family Style (Epic ZK-46225), copyright notice

One night while sleeping in my bed I had a beautiful dream
That all the people of the world got together on the same wavelength,
and began helping one another
Now in this dream, universal love was the theme of the day
Peace and understanding and it happened this way

The sick, the hungry, had smiles on their faces,
the tired and the homeless had family all around
The streets and the cities were all beautiful places,
and the walls came tumblin' down

People of the world all had it together,
had it together for the boys and the girls
And the children of the world look forward to a future
Remember
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away
Remember that
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away

I had a vision of blue skies from sea to shining sea,
all the trees in the forest stood strong and tall again
Everything was clean and pretty and safe for you and me,
the worst of enemies became the best of friends

People of the world all had it together,
had it together for the boys and the girls
Children of the world look forward to a future

Remember
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away
Remember that
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away

Remember that, remember that
Remember that, remember that

People of the world all had it together,
had it together for the boys and the girls
Children of the world look forward to a future

Remember
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away
Remember that
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people, time's tickin' away

Tightrope

chords

soundclip


by Stevie Ray Vaughan / Doyle Bramhall
recording of 1989

from In Step (Epic EK-45024), copyright notice

Caught up in a whirlwind can't catch my breath,
knee deep in hot water broke out in a cold sweat
Can't catch a turtle in this rat race,
feels like I'm losin' time at a breakneck pace

Afraid of my own shadow in the face of grace,
heart full of darkness spotlight on my face
There was love all around me but I was lookin' for revenge,
thank God it never found me would have been the end

I was walkin' the tightrope steppin' on my friends
Walkin' the tightrope it was a shame and a sin
Walkin' the tightrope between wrong and right
Walkin' the tightrope both day and night

Lookin' back in front of me in the mirror's a grin,
through eyes of love I see I'm really lookin' at a friend
We've all had our problems that's the way life is,
my heart goes out to others who are there to make amends

We've been walkin' the tightrope tryin' to make it right
Walkin' the tightrope every day and every night
Walkin' the tightrope bring it all around
Walkin' the tightrope from the lost to found

Walkin' the tightrope stretched around the world
Walkin' the tightrope save the boys and girls
Walkin' the tightrope let's make it right
Walkin' the tightrope do it do it tonight
Walkin' the tightrope

Went down to Tin Pan Alley, see what was going on
Things was too hot down there, couldn't stay very long
Hey hey hey hey, alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there, livin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

I heard a woman scream, yeah, and I peeked through the door
Some cat was workin' on Annie with a, Lord with a two-by-four
Hey hey hey hey, alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there, livin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

Somebody killed a crap shooter cause he didn't, shake, rattle, and roll
Hey hey hey hey, alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there, killin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

I saw a cop standin', with his hand on his gun
Said "This is a raid boys, nobody run"

Yeah they took me away from tin pan alley
And took me right back, to the pen

Wall Of Denial

tab

soundclip


by Stevie Ray Vaughan / Doyle Bramhall
recording of 1989

from In Step (Epic EK-45024), copyright notice

A wall of denial, is fallin' down
Wo it's fallin' so hard, own to the ground
Never knew something so strong could be washed away by tears,
but this wall of denial was just built on fear

We've all had our demons from the garden of white lies,
dressed them amused them pullin' wool over our eyes
Go so far as to love them to keep from letting them go,
all the while they we're killin' us but we couldn't let it show

No matter what the trouble we carry round inside,
we're never safe from the truth but in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial comes tumblin' down,
down to the ground

Simple things in life bring the greatest pleasure,
a smile, a kiss, a little baby's laughter
It makes no difference if we run away in fear,
the little things in life hold us so near

No matter what the trouble we carry round inside,
we're never safe from the truth but in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial comes tumblin' down
Yeah, this wall of denial must tumble down
Down to the ground

That's my baby in the white boots
That's my baby on the floor
That's my baby havin' some fun
And yellin' more, more, more

That's my baby in the short skirt
Wo, out of control
Ah, she becomes another woman
When she rocks & rolls

She's having a good time
Goin' round & round
She's really rippin' it up
You know she can't sit down, oh no

That's my baby lookin' so good
You know I can't explain
How when she's dancing in the white boots
It makes her go insane

She's having a good time
Goin' round & round
She's really rippin' it up
You know she can't sit down, oh no

That's my baby in the short skirt

That's my baby havin' some fun

Willie the Wimp was buried today,
they laid him to rest in a special way.
Sent him off in the finest style,
that casket-mobile really drove 'em wild
Southside Chicago will think of him often,
talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his cadillac coffin,
Willie the Wimp and his cadillac coffin

That casket, it looked like a fine Seville,
he had a vanity license and a cadillac grille
Willie was propped up in the driver's seat,
he had diamonds on his fingers and a smile sweet
Fine red suit had the whole town talkin',
talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
Willie the Wimp and his cadillac coffin

Oh, cadillac to heaven he was wavin' the banner,
he left like he lived, in a lively manner
With a-hundred dollar bills in his fingers tight,
he had flowers for wheels and a-flashin' headlights
He been wishin' for wings, no way he was walkin',
talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his cadillac coffin
Yeah, Willie the Wimp and his cadillac coffin
