Bruce Hornsby and Bonnie Raitt – Rainbow’s Cadillac 1993

November 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Well he came to town with a strong pull
Would flash his moves for the worshipful
Shoulder moves from side to side
Go over your head and dot your eyes

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

He’d pull up from around the back
Folks say, “There’s Rainbow’s Cadillac”
Fancy shirts and shorts of plaid
Coat of more colors than Joseph had

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

Take a quarter from the collection plate
Every night he would dominate
Jump to the top and pick off a dime
Throw it down at the proper time

Every night about a quarter to ten
From the middle of June to the summer’s end
People would gather from miles around
To see the mighty Rainbow knock ’em down

Let me, let me, let me
Baby don’t you get me
Let me, let me, let me
Baby don’t you get me

Allright

Can’t you see what I’m trying to do
Doing my best to try to get to you
Don’t you hear what I’m trying to sing
All the right words but still you run away

Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)

Don’t it seem (Yeah) that when you love somebody (Houuuu)

Ain’t it right (Yeah) that somebody should loves you (Houuuu)
And I know (Yeah) my love is going somewhere (Houuuu)
But I’m sure (Yeah), it ain’t being got by you
That it’s true, won’t you try, won’t you try

Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)
Baby don’t you get me (Yeah)
Let me (Let me), let me (Let me), let me (Yeah)

Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Flea with Metallica – Train Kept A Rollin’ 2009 HQ

November 18, 2020 Leave a comment

Well on a train, I met a dame
She rather handsome
We kinda look the same
She was pretty
From New York City
I’m walkin’ down that old fair lane

I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so
I said, Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
Train Kept A Rollin’ all night long
With a heave, and a ho
But I just couldn’t tell her so, no, no, no
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so, no, no, no
Well on a train, I met a dame
She rather handsome
We kinda looked the same
She was pretty
From New York City
I’m walkin’ down that old fair lane
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her so
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
Well, get along
Sweet little woman get along
On your way
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her
Well, we made a stop in Albequerque
She musta thought
I was a real cool jerk
Got off the train, and put her hands up
Lookin’ so good, I couldn’t let her go
But I just couldn’t tell her so
I’m in heat, I’m in love
But I just couldn’t tell her

Jethro Tull: To Cry You a Song/A New Day Yesterday (07/31/1976)

November 17, 2020 Leave a comment

Flying so high
Trying to remember
How many cigarettes
Did I bring along?

When I get down
I’ll jump in a taxi cab
Driving through London Town
To cry you a song

It’s been a long time
Still shaking my wings
Well, I’m a glad bird
I got changes to ring

Closing my dream
Inside its paper-bag
Thought I saw angels
But I could have been wrong

Search in my case
Can’t find what they’re looking for
Waving me through
To cry you a song

It’s been a long time
Still shaking my wings
Well I’m a glad bird
I got changes to ring

Lights in the street
Peeping through curtains drawn
Rattling of safety chain
Taking too long

The smile in your eyes
Was never so sweet before
Came down from the skies
To cry you a song

The Stone Roses – Love Spreads (Live 1996)

November 16, 2020 Leave a comment

Love spreads her arms, waits there for the nails
I forgive you, boy, I will prevail
Too much to take, some cross to bear
I’m hiding in the trees with a picnic, she’s over there, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah

She didn’t scream, she didn’t make a sound
I forgive you boy, but don’t leave town
Cold black skin, naked in the rain
Hammer flash in the lightning, they’re hurting her again

Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
I have a dream, I’ve seen the light
Don’t put it out, and she’s alright, yeah, she’s my sister

She didn’t scream, she didn’t make a sound
I forgive you boy, but don’t leave town
Cold black skin, naked in the rain
Hammer flash in the lightning, they’re hurting her again

Oh, oh, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister, ain’t no king, man, she’s my queen
I had a dream, I’ve seen the light
Don’t put it out, and she’s alright, yeah, she’s my sister

Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Lucky Man (Live)

Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Lucky Man (Live)

He had white horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Gonna take a freight train
Down at the station, Lord
I don’t care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain
The highest mountain
Jump off, nobody gonna know

Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

I’m gonna find me
A hole in the wall
I’m gonna crawl inside and die
‘Cause my lady, now
A mean ol’ woman, Lord
Never told me goodbye

Can’t you see, oh, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me

I’m gonna buy a ticket, now
As far as I can
Ain’t a-never comin’ back
Ride me a southbound
All the way to Georgia, now
Till the train, it run out of track

Can’t you see, oh, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

Can’t you see (oh, she’s such a crazy lady), can’t you see
What that woman (what that woman) she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see (Lord, I can’t stand), can’t you see
What that woman, oh, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see (I’m gonna take a freight train)
Can’t you see (down at the station, Lord)
What that woman, she been doin’ to me (ain’t never comin’ back) oh oh
Can’t you see (gonna ride me a southbound, now)
Can’t you see (all the way to Georgia, Lord)
What that woman, she been doin’ to me (till the train run out of track), oh
