waiting for that midnight train

Mindin' my own bus'ness,
when the ticket man calls my name
Yeah, yeah, babe
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
So I say, "If it ain't too much trouble,
when's the local out of town?"
His reply: "Two a.m."
If I'm leavin' local-bound
I can catch it in forty minutes,
if I want to grab the express
But the local trains are hard to come by,
this time of night, more or less
Listen, said
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
So I stood for forty minutes,

When the express rolled down the track,

No Lie

by Buddy Guy
recording February 8th 1963, Chiacgo, Illinois

I know you're getting sick and tired of me baby, 
this that I can plainly see
But deep from the bottom of my heart, baby, 
I know, you're hurting me
But just as sure, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie
I'd rather fight a bear, baby, jump down in a lions den
Than to hear you keep on telling me baby that this is the end
But just as sure, baby, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie
(Alright! Have mercy baby! Yes, yes, yes)
Yes, just look how you're doing me, baby, 
since you got up on your feet
You're going away to leave me, baby, 
I got this without no meat
But just as sure, sure as you are born to die
But, baby, I love you, and you know, that's no lie
