You know I hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too
Yeah, hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too,
Wouldn't nobody let me do what I want to do

I got love if you want it baby
I got love if you want it
I got love if you want it
I got love if you want it

You just wait a little while

Quit teasing me baby

With your sly round frame

Let me love you, love you baby
I'll be your loving man

Try my next door baby

If you can do things right
If you can do things right
Don't worry nobody
Then it's already time
Then it's already time

I love you little woman
I love you little woman
Wanna let it do myself
Wanna let it do myself
That you mistreat me baby
Love from someone else
Love from someone else

I love you little woman
I love you little woman
With my head hung down
With my head hung down
I know you'll be gone darling
Talk all over town
Talk all over town

Illustrated Man

soundclip


by Fred James / M.A. Brandon
recording 1991

from Let Me In (Virgin 86244), copyright notice

He's the illustrated man, baby
He's got tattoos everywhere
People love his decorations
They just have to stop & stare

Got the Mona Lisa on his cheek
the Van Gogh on his nose
Got naked women all over him
From his head down to his toes

Got a screamin' demon on his chest
Cat face on his thigh
He's a walkin' wonder box
Until the day he dies

It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
Lord when I was in love with you darling, Long time I didn't love you

Bring it all home to me
I go out every night baby
And I get all mad about girls I see

It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
Lord when I was in love with you darling, Long time I didn't love you

You used to stay home with me darling
Now you're going around with all the boys
You say you don't need me
Lord it's tough on my nerves

It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
Lord when I was in love with you darling, Long time I didn't love you

Oh I'm down on my knees
Can't think what tomorrow will bring
Lord I'm gonna try to do better baby
And love you the best I can

It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
It's my own fault darling, treat me the way you wanna do
Lord when I was in love with you darling, Long time I didn't love you

Leaving Blues

soundclip


by Johnny Winter
recording 1997

from Relix Records Best of Blues, Vol. 2 (Relix 2087), copyright notice

I woke up this morning at the break of day
Just hugging the pillow where my rider used to lay

Leavin' blues I can't stay here to long
I've been mistreated and I'm goin' home

I sometimes drink whisky, I sometimes drink wine
I've been mistreated and I don't mind dying

I've got my 32-20 and my old .44
I got a shotgun on my shoulder, and I'm bound to go

Lights Out

soundclip

from Guitar Slinger (Alligator ALCD-4735), copyright notice

Standin' on my front porch
Grabbed her and I kissed her
Boy (I) was surprised when I saw her little sister

Lights out
Lights out
I'm glad the lights was out
Sister knows (what) it's all about
What to do when the lights go out

Mother looked at me
She was peepin' through the window
Way she looked at me you'd have thought I was her sister

Lights out
Lights out
I'm glad the lights was out
Sister knows (what) it's all about
What to do when the lights go out

lovin' on the front porch
took mama's swing
I can almost hear those weddin' bells ring

Lights out
Lights out
I'm glad the lights was out
Sister knows (what) it's all about
What to do when the lights go out

now we('re) married
and we got a little house
had to marry little sister 'cause the lights went out

Lights out
Lights out
I'm glad the lights was out
Sister knows (what) it's all about
What to do when the lights go out

now we('re) married
and we got a little house
had to marry little sister 'cause the lights went out

Lights out
Lights out
I'm glad the lights was out

Love, Life & Money

soundclip


by Willie Dixon / Glover
recording 1986

from Third Degree (Alligator ALCD-4748), copyright notice

Life has made me
Pay an awful price
I try and gamble with ya
But you're using crooked dice

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me

Money you've made me
Some very fast friends
And just like you made them
You're gonna break them in the end

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me

I've had my share, of love life and money
I've lost all 3 ways
I'm here to tell ya that shore ain't funny
Me & my money parted, so did my love and I
Life don't mean a thing
And I wish that I could die

Life has made, a whole lotta fools
Always teach ya something
You never learn in school

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me

You know I packed up my suitcase and I hit that lonesome, move on down
I'm still crying to make it when the day was done

Nothing Left


by
recording 1970 resp. 1986

from Johnny Winter And... (Columbia KC-30221) & And/Alive! (Columbia CGT-33651), copyright notice

Woke up inside myself this morning, uncertainty all around
Got straight and turned on to some happiness, then I lay back down, all there was around
Nothing left but ashes, and the smell

Went down to the corner drug store, the pain was more than I could bare
They told me that I was illegal, I told them I don't care, let them stand and stare
Nothin' left but old bones, and the smell

I know I can't go on, I just can't stand the pain, can't stand the pain,
I know I just can't stand ..., guess I'll go insane, go insane

Guess I was born to be mistreated, contentment seems too hard to find
Searchin' for some understandin', then I lost my mind, left it far behind
Nothing left but memories, and the smell

from White Hot & Blue (Blue Sky 35475) & Scorchin' Blues (Epic ZK-52466), copyright notice

My baby told me got to take one step at a time
You know my baby told me got to take one step at a time
She got a crazy way of walking 'bout to drive me outta my mind

She never steps out, always walking proud
Lady never steps out and she's always walking proud
Well the way the woman moves makes me want to scream out loud

Well she step to the left, she step to right
She walk all day, man she run all night
My baby told me take one step at a time

Well she got a way of walking 'bout to drive me outta my mind
Yes, yes, play a while
She don't move too fast, she don't move too slow
She always knows the way I wants to go

Baby told me got to take one step at a time
Yes, that's what she told me
She got a way of walking 'bout to drive me outta my mind
Yes, that's the truth

Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Years night

Friends and relations
Send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas
Yeah, it's Christmas my dear
It's the time of year to be with the one you love

So won't you tell me
You'll never more roam
Christmas and New Year
Will find you home
There be no more sorrow
No grief and pain
And I'll be happy, happy, once again

Oh, there be no more sorrow
No grief and pain
And I'll be happy, Christmas, once again

I couldn't stop moving when it first took hold
It was a warm spring night in the ol' town hall
There was a group called The Jokers, they were layin' it down
Don'tcha know I'm never gonna lose that funky sound

Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Lawdy mama light my fuse
Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Truck on out and spread the news

The skeeters start buzzing 'bout this time o' year
I'm goin' round back, she said she'd meet me there
We were rollin' in the grass that grows behind the barn
When my ears started ringin' like a fire alarm

Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Lawdy mama light my fuse
Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Truck on out and spread the news

Hope ya'll know what I'm talkin' about
The way they wiggle that thing, it really knocks me out
I'm gettin' high all the time, hope ya'll are too
Well come-on a little closer, gonna do it to you

Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Lawdy mama light my fuse
Rock and roll, Hoochie Koo
Truck on out and spread the news

That I'm tired of payin' dues
Done said goodbye to all my blues
Lawdy mama light my fuse

Woke up this mornin' feelin' bad
Thinkin' 'bout the good things I once had had
Ain't no good, feelin' this a way
Gonna rock my blues away

Gonna get up
Tear my blue self down
When I get through boogyin'
Won't be no more blues around

Drank some whiskey, beer and wine
Ya know I been mistreated & I don't mind dyin'
C'mere momma, bring me one more pint
Gonna get stoned, gonna wreck this joint

Gonna get up
Tear my blue self down
When I get through boogy'in'
Won't be no more blues around

Spendin' money, lord, feelin' good
Gettin' down like I knew I would
I don't trust women, don't like men
Might not feel this good again

Gonna get up
Tear my blue self down
When I get through boogy'in'
Won't be no more blues around
