You Give Me Loving
You give me loving that I can't return
You give me money that you know I'll burn
I'll give you something that you can't give back
Then I'm moving right on down the track
You've given everything you've got to me
But still you cannot really set me free
My life is changing and I'm on the run
I'll see you later when I've had some fun

I keep running, 'cause I know the score
You'll never find me coming back for more
I'll catch you later 'cause I'm gonna split
You give a lot, I only need a bit
You give me loving that I can't return
You give me money that you know I'll burn
You give me loving just for your own sake
You only give it so that you can take

You give me loving and it's plain to see
You wanna give it to me all for free
But I can't take it 'cause you need it back
The art of giving is the one I lack
You give me loving and you drive me mad
You give me money and it makes me sad
'Cause I meed freedom more than I need gold
And so I'm leavin' 'fore I get too old

Convention Prevention
I'd like to reach out to you
And learn just how do you do
So we can still relate
I'd like to open my mind
So you can come in and find
How we communicate
There's a chemical reaction
And it's causing an attraction
From you to me
I am not one for convention
But I have a good intention
For you from me

Rain is falling and a thunderbolt is crashing through my head
And there's people and pain all around me
Someone is calling and electric sparks are everywhere I tread
My life, it seems, is a sequence of dreams
And there's people and pain all around me

I'm going down in a black elevator
'Cause the big masturbator's got his eye on me
I'm going down 'cause my brain is on fire
And my soul is a liar 'cause I tried to be free
Tried to be free, tried to be free....

Freedom in your mind you can have when you dead
Freedom in your life just depends on your head
Freedom in your heart can alas never be
'Cause no one on this earth has been born to be free
Born to be free, born to me free....

All of my life I have tried to be free
All of my life I have learned all I see
All of my life I have searched for a clue
All of my life I have tried to be true
Tried to be true, tried to be true....

Turned Off T.V.Blues
It's a cold and winter's night and the rain is falling down
It's so cold, cold outside, snow is laying all around
There is blackness in my window, and the silence is the only sound

Well I'm sitting and I'm thinking though I like to watch T.V.
It just fills my head with garbage that my eyes ain't surposed to see
Got the turned off T.V. blues now, but I'm lonely as you see

Well I've got a worried feeling, all the pain and misery
Well, it's happenning in the world now, even though I cannot see
Though my body is now with you, still my mind is runnning free

There's just nothing I can do now, though I search from day to day
But the truth is so hard to tell you, and you know it, anyway
It's a cold and winter's evening, I wish my blues would go away

Standing At The Station
Well, I'm standin' at the station
And the rain don't make a sound
Got a Bible in my pocket
Cause my plane was just shot down
My mind is all confusion
I believe I'm in a play
Throw my Bible out the window
As the train goes on i'ts way

Gonna leave my blues behind me
Gonna find another town
Gonna try and find some people
Who this time won't bring me down
As I step out of the carriage
The station looks the same
As the one I left behind me
Though it has another name

You Can't Win Them All
You can't win them all
'Cause sometimes you fall flat on your face on the floor
You can't win them all
It's no good at all if you feel that your life is a bore

You've got to hang loose to keep from the noose
And you've got to learn to use your brain
You've got to live right and keep to the right
Then, you're free if you don't go insane

I've seen a lot of people
They've all blown it out
You can't win them all is what they all shout
You've got to keep tryin'
Got to stand up a gain
You can't lose them all, babe
'Cause one day you'll win

You've got to have taste or life is a waste
And you don't ever tune yourself in
You've got to keep on or they'll get you, my son
And they know that you just can't win

Religion
I never really understood religion
Except it seems a good excuse to kill
I never really could make a decision
I don't suppose I ever really will

I can't relate to any power structure
Where ego is the driving energy
I let mine go long, long time ago, now
When I decided that I would be free

Only thing I understand is living
The biggest sacrifice to make is death
Once you're dead, there's noting left for giving
The life means fighting your every breath

Choo Choo Moma
Choo Choo Moma, won't you ride the train?
My life without you is just misery and pain, come back to me
I'll treat you best I can
Choo Choo Moma, you should have a choo choo man

Choo Choo Moma, won't you ride a rail?
I need your loving, can't you hear me wail, come back to me
You know I love you so
Choo Choo Moma, won't you get a choo choo home?

Choo Choo Moma, won't you ride the track?
I need your loving, won't you bring some back on home to me
I need your loving, babe
Choo Choo Moma, don't you know you drive me mad?

Choo Choo Moma, you're a cheery thing
I love you, baby, can't you help me sing, come back to me
I want you back again
Choo Choo Moma, won't you get a choo choo train?

Tomorrow I'll Be Out Of Town
You know, tomorrow I'll be out of town
Baby, before the sun goes down
There's an agent and he's made a bet
That I'll be sitting on a jumbo jet
Baby, I'd like to stay here
Baby, I'd like to play here
But I made a deal
And though it don't seem real
Just another day
I'll be three thousand miles away
I got to pay my dues
You know I sing the blues
Got to do my thing
All I do is sing rock and roll

You know, tomorrow I'll be on my way
Flying through an other day
Places turn into a dream
I can't remember where I've been
Baby, I'd like to stop here
Baby, I'd like to drop here
But in a month or so
Then I will have to go
But it does no good
Still it's in my blood
I got to pay my dues
You know I sing the blues
Got to do my thing
All I do is sing rock and roll

Man must do what a man must do
No time to sit and wait
One day he's gonna realise
That it is too late

You know, tomorrow I'll be on my own
Flying through an other zone
Faces turn into a dream
I can't remember who I've seen
Baby, I'd like to lay here
Baby, I'd like to stay here
But there's an other show
And I just have to go
Still keep coming through
Don't know how I'll do
I got to pay my dues
You know I sing the blues
Got to do my thing
All I do is sing rock and roll

Rock and Roll Music To The World
We did some rock and roll up in Texas
And the folks from the coast towns said
You better watch yourself up in Texas
Or you, you might just end up dead, boy
But the people I found
Grooving to the sound
Of rock and roll music in the air
We all had a ball
With no hassles at all
Pretty soon I'm gonna go back there

I'm singing
Rock and roll music to the world
Rock and roll music to the world
Ain't no relation
To the United Nations
Keep rock and rolling to the world
Give peace a chance
Get up and dance

When I sing
Rock and roll music to the world
I'm gonna scream
I'm gonna shout
Get my emotions
And work them all right out

I wanna live
Just like I give
No need to fight
Wait for tonight
When I sing
Rock and roll music to the world

Rock and roll music to the world
Rock and roll music to the world
Ain't got no calling
Except for balling
Rock and roll music to the world
Don't need no boost
Just turn me loose
And I sing
Rock and roll music to the world
I tell the truth
I ain't no star
I only shout
And leave the rest to my guitar

Rock and roll music to the world
Rock and roll music to the world
Ain't no relation
To the United Nations
Keep rock and rolling to the world
Don't need no boost
Just turn me loose
And I sing
Rock and roll music to the world

Love Like A Man
You rolypoly
All over town
But you come on back to me
When things are down
Love like a man
Love all you can

Your satisfaction
Is growing less
If you come on back to me
Use my address and let you
Love like a man
Love all you can

You are the woman
You can't deny
You look so good to me, girl
You make me high

I'll tell you something
I think you know
When you flash those eyes at me
Love like a man
Love all you can

I'd Love to Change The World
Everwhere is freaks and hairies, dykes and fairies
Tell me where is sanity?
Tax the rich, feed the poor, till there are no rich no more

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Population - keeps on breeding, nation bleeding
Still more feeding - ecomomy
Life is funny, skies are sunny, bees make honey
Who needs money? Monopoly!

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

World pollution, there's so solution, institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor, them and us
We'll stop the war!

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
"And Good Luck"

Look Into My Life
Come into my head, tell me what you see
Just another dreamer, trying to free
Just another schemer, searching for the key
Just another trucker, just another bum
Just another jumper, always on the run

Come into my brain, tell me what you find
Just another searcher scared of going blind<
Look into my life and tell me what you find
Just another tripper blowing out his mind
Just another joker, just another tramp
Just another flyer heading up the ramp

Come into my love life, tell me what goes on
Just another picker picking at a song
Look into my life and tell me what goes on
Just another gambler trying to hit the gong

Circles
Life is going 'round in circles, wonder will it ever end?
If I die babe will you miss me, or just find another friend?
Does it matter what I do, live life right or bear a grudge?
Does it matter what I do, is there anyone to judge?

I have been to many places, I have journeyed through the mind
Though I've found some different faces, 'nother answer I can't find
Does it matter what I do, is there anyone to say?
Does it matter what I do, is there any other way?

I have got what I once dreamed of, as a child so long ago
But my life just goes in circles, 'cause one answer I don't know
Does it matter what I do, who will hear me if I cry?
Does it matter what I do, does it matter if I die?

Ain't Nobody's Business
Too many people, running to and fro
Trying to make a buck, and never let it go
I'll never find that game, to satisfy my soul
I just wanna play that good old rock and roll
Don't worry about the future, never mind the news
I just want my freedom, so I can play the blues
I'm minding my own business, ain't nobody's business but my own

Wake up in the morning, pick up my guitar
Never read a paper, doesn't get me very far
Never mind the future, just livin' for today
Whatever's gonna happen, gonna happen anyway
Don't worry about your life, it will get you in a state
You're gonna be dead my friend, and then it is too late
So I'm takin' care of business, Ain't nobody's business but my own

Don't want a Ferrari, as long as I've got wheels
Don't need those kind of trappin's Lord, you know that stuff ain't real
You know none of those goods can do no good for you when you go
I only need my freedom, to satisfy my soul
Don't worry about those stocks and shares
The money you make in pounds
The money you got to lose boy, will only bring you down
I'm mindin' my own business, Ain't nobody's business but my own

So many people, they're running to and fro
Tryin' to make a buck, and never let it go
I'll never find that game, to satisfy my soul
I just wanna play that good old rock and roll
Don't worry about the future, never mind the news
I just want my freedom, so I can sing the blues
I'm mindin' my own business, Ain't nobody's business but my own
Ain't nobody's business but my own
Ain't nobody's business but my own

The Bluest Blues
I couldn't wait to see you, waiting by the door
There's no one there to meet me, and your clothes are on the floor
Sorry if I hurt you - and I made you cry
Couldn't stand to see you with another guy
It's the bluest blues, and it cuts me like a knife
It's the bluest blues - since you walked out of my life

Couldn't really tell you how you hurt my pride
Something broke within me, down inside
I never knew I loved you, until you went away
Now the loneliness surrounds me, everyday

It's the bluest blues, since you walked out of the door
It's the blues blues, 'cause I won't see you no more

I'm sorry if I failed you, if somehow I'm to blame
It's the bluest blues I'm feeling, it's a cryin' shame
I just can't live without you - face another day
It's the bluest blues I'm feeling, and it's here to stay

It's the bluest blues, and it cuts me to the bone
It's the bluest blues, when you can't find your way.

50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain
I want to know you, I want to show you,
I want to grow you  - inside of me
I want to see you, I want to free you
I want to be you - inside of me.
Love me, fifty thousand miles beneath my brain.
Love me - fifty thousand times and then again.

Can you love me with a thousand eyes?
Can you see right through my bones?
Can you kiss me with a thousand lips?
Can you love a solid stone?

Can you hear me from a thousand miles,
when I'm screaming at the stars?
Can you pull me up to Jupiter,
when I'm all hung up on Mars?

Burn my eyes with your flame,
Let your world spin free
Let it go babe, I'll do the same - all depends on me.
Let it go, it's all the same, what with jewels that you can't see.
Love me, love me, love me, love me. love me babe,
Bring it on home to me.

I Wanted to Boogie
Well I wanted to boogie so we got in the car
Well I wasn't too choosy but then soon we got far
So we stopped in a club and we had us a drink
Well it wasn't too long and just what do you think

Well I wanted to boogie and the band they came on
Yellow Bird very pretty but I don't like the song
So I went for a walk and I followed the sound
And I came to a party and a lady I found

Well she smiled real sweet and she said you're a peach
So she wanted to take me for a walk on the beach
And she told me the breeze as it comes from the sea
Keeps your hard on all night and you will need it with me

Well I wanted to boogie but I wasn't too sure
That I wanted to do just what she wanted me for
So I said I'm with friends and I haven't the dime
So she turned round and said, well come and see me sometime

Well, I wanted to boogie so we kept on the move
And we looked for a place where we could go in and groove
So we went to the Playboy and we hadn 't got keys
So it cost thrity dollars just to go in and freeze

So I wanted to boogie but the time hadn't come
We decided to sleep and then get up with the sun
So we headed for home and it didn't take long
So I sat on my bed and then I wrote out this song.

Time and Space
As you sit there is the country,
do you ever think of me?
As I travel cross the ocean,
always searching to be free

Will I cry this night for you babe
As I stare out at the storm
Time and space has come between us
Might as well be up and gone

Will I need so much to hold you
As I lie here all alone
Time and space has come between us
Wish that I was comin' home

Seems that I was born to wonder
Seems the devil's on my mind
So I've got to keep on searching,
'Til the answer I can find

Seems that I just need you
'cause I love you deep inside
Time and space has come between us,
Wish that I was by your side.

Let's Shake it Up
Glad to see you made it to the show tonight,
know you like your rock and roll
Rhythm gonna get ya make you feel alright
Move it to your very soul

You're working hard, it's time to play
Let your soul run free
Music gonna get ya like the jungle drums
Won't you rock and roll with me

It's a burning fever, that's burning up my soul
Shake it up; Let's shake it up
When I feel like workin' on some rock'n roll
sweat drippin' off of my face
Get the fire buring, shovel on some coal
Try to win the human race

I see your body movin', I can feel the heat
Say Lord, how I love that rock and roll
Feel it from my head to my feet
It's a burning fever, that's burning up my soul
Let's shake it up, Let's shake it up.

Detroit Diesel
Late at night I was driving home
Feeling tired, I was all alone
I pulled in at the first truck stop motel
There she stood like a dream in the night
Hair was long and her dress was tight
Just one smile and I knew I was under her spell

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit diesel
Like I'm in overdrive

She took my hand, checked me in for the night
She said "Honey don't you put up a fight
I want some loving and to you it's all for free"
She got me blowing like a hurricane
So much good loving driving me insane
Can't believe that you really happened to me

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit diesel
Like I'm in overdrive

You turn me on like an electric light
You burn me up like a missile site
You got me running like a turbo nine forty four
You move my soul like an original sin
You detonate me like a firing pin
When I leave you I'll be coming back for more.

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit diesel
Like I'm in overdrive.

On The Road to Freedom
I'm on the road to freedom, on the road to love
Yonder can you see them who they're thinking of

I met a rich man on the road, he told me where to go
To get my hands upon some gold, but I still answered no

'Cause freedom waits for me ahead, your gold will slow me down
I smiled as I walked on my way, and left him with a frown

I met an old man on the road, his eyes were clear and wise
Can you direct me on my way, to where the answer lies?

I'm looking for the road to freedom so I can be free
He said 'keep thinking as you walk, and one day you will see

I'm on the road to freedom, on the road to truth
Yonder can you see them wasting precious youth

I thought as I walked down the road of what the man had said
It seems to me that what he meant is freedom's in your head

The road I walk along is time, it's measured out in hours
And now I need not rush along, I stop to see the flowers
Stop to smell the flowers

Outside My Window
Outside my windown, rain falling down
Call for my woman - no where around
I hear laughter, outside in the hall
Outside my window, I see nothing at all

There's a star in the night and it's shining so bright
I could swear it was callin' to me
There's a hope in my heart that is broken apart
and the pain for a moment is free

Outside my window, there's a light burning bright
and it keeps on callin' me into the night
Outside my window, somethin' callin' me
Outside my window, someone waits for me

How long I wonder, can this go on?
I had it all, now it is gone
So lonely, here with the blues
I never knew I had so much to lose

There's a star in the night and it's shining so bright
I could swear it was callin' to me
There's a hope in my heart that is broken apart
and the pain for a moment is free

Outside my window, there's a light burning bright
and it keeps on callin' me into the night
Outside my window, somethin' callin' me
Outside my window, someone waits for me

I feel so lonely, life got me down
I call all my friends, but they're all out of town
I keep on searching, trying to find
Someone to love me, let me ease my worried mind.

Once There Was a Time
Once there was a time I'd rob my mama
For a good meal and a smoke
One there was a time I'd sell my brother
For a dollar, when I was broke

But I'd never sell my guitar
And my strings are always sharp
'Cause if I don't have a guitar
I'll be strumming on some angel's harp

And if I don't get to heaven
And if I go down there below
Better be a guitar when I get there
Or I will refuse to go

Once there was a time, I was hungry
And I'd find my food in some bin
But I'd never, ever sell my guitar
Cause that would darling, that would be a sin.
