They Call Me The Breeze
(J.J.Cale)

They call me the breeze, I keep blowing down the road
They call me the breeze, I keep blowing down the road
I ain't got me nobody, I ain't carrying me no load
Ain't no change in the weather, ain't no change in me
Ain't no change in the weather, ain't no change in me
I ain't hiding from nobody, ain't nobody hiding from me
I've got that green light, baby, I've got to keep moving on
I've got that green light, baby, I've got to keep moving on
I might go out to California, might go down to Georgia, might go home

Call The Doctor
(J.J.Cale)
Somebody call for the doctor, I think I'm sick
Ain't had my medicine in over a week
My mind's fine but my body feels weak
Call the doctor, I think I'm sick
A shady lady took all my bread
Ravished my body, lord, and messed with my head
I don't know but I've had my fill
Call the doctor and tell him I'm ill
My money's gone and I've got no place to go
I don't believe I've ever felt so low
If you've got the time while you hang around
Call the doctor and tell him I'm down

Don't Go To Strangers
(J.J.Cale)
If I'm standing in a crowd, call my name, call it loud
Don't go to strangers, woman, call on me
Wave your arms in the air, let me know that you're there
When in doubt, oh woman, call on me
Don't leave me here to rust, don't let me turn to dust
Oh, woman, when in doubt, call on me
If I'm standing in a crowd, call my name, call it loud
Don't go to strangers, woman, call on me

Woman I Love
(J.J.Cale)
Woman I love ain't much more than skin and bone
Woman I love ain't much more than skin and bone
If she ain't round the house - out of the door, daddy no more
Woman I love ain't much more than skin and bone
Treat me right, oh no no, can't complain
Treat me right, oh no, can't complain
She got to be nice, she got me hypnotised
Treat me right, oh no, can't complain

Magnolia
(J.J.Cale)
Whip o'will's singing
Soft summer breeze
Makes me think of my baby
I left down in New Orleans
I left down in New Orleans
Magnolia, you sweet thing
You're driving me mad
Got to get back to you, babe
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had
You whisper "Good morning"
So gently in my ear
I'm coming home to you, babe
I'll soon be there
I'll soon be there

Clyde
(J.J.Cale and C.W.Beavers)
Clyde plays electric bass
Plays it with finesse and grace
Sit on the porch without no shoes
A-picking the bass and singing the blues
Misery loves company
And his old dog sings harmony
Tambourine tied to his tail
You can hear him moan, you can hear him wail
Jody May, she got a dollar
Down the road you can hear her holler
"Get up Clyde, we got something to do
That old dog can sing the blues"
He don't move, he don't flinch
Clyde, he don't move an inch
Just sit on the porch without no shoes
Picking his bass and singing the blues

Crazy Mama
(J.J.Cale)
Crazy mama, where you been so long?
Crazy mama, where you been so long?
You've been hiding out, I know that's true
Crazy mama, I sure need you
Crazy mama, where you been so long?
Standing on the corner, looking for you, babe
Standing on the corner, looking for you, babe
Lord have mercy, can I see,
that crazy mama coming back to me?
Crazy mama, where you been so long?

Nowhere To Run
(J.J.Cale)
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
No way to relieve this feeling inside
You done gave me them blues and then you took a ride
Left me with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Shame, oh shame, on what you do
Can't you see that I, I, I, been feeling so blue?
Cast a spell on me, then you took a ride
Left me with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Pardon me, if I sound so sad
I can't get to you when I want you so bad
You done gave me them blues, then you took a ride
Left me with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

After Midnight
(J.J.Cale)
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang out
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout
We're gonna cause talk and suspicion
Give an exhibition
Find out what it is all about
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang out
After midnight, gonna shake your tambourine
After midnight, it's gonna be peaches and cream
We're gonna cause talk and suspicion
Give an exhibition
Find out what it is all about
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang out
[ We're gonna stimulate some action               ]
[ Get some satisfaction                           ]
[ Gonna find out what it's all about              ]
[ After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang out ]

River Runs Deep
(J.J.Cale)
Well, the river runs deep and the water is cold as ice
The river runs deep and the water is cold as ice
I go down there every chance I get
It's where my baby she met her death
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice
Ain't no woman gonna make a fool out of me
Ain't no woman gonna make a fool out of me
Running 'round, that's what they said
She's at the bottom of the river dead
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice
No cheating woman gonna get a good man down
No cheating woman gonna get a good man down
Running 'round like a silly fool
You're gonna end up at the bottom of the pool
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice

Bringing It Back
(J.J.Cale)
Saturday, past September
In the jailhouse, I remember
I got caught with too much soul
Bringing it back from Mexico
Bringing it back from Mexico
Spanish lights and pretty faces
Trip you out to where the place is
Load you up and let you go
Bringing it back from Mexico
Bringing it back from Mexico
Across the border is where you get her
The wine's good, there ain't no better
I think I'll get me some to go
Bringing it back from Mexico
Bringing it back from Mexico

Crying Eyes
(J.J.Cale)
It ain't easy drying these crying eyes of mine
It ain't easy drying these crying eyes of mine
I get so lonely, lonely, lonely
It ain't easy drying these crying eyes of mine
What can you do when those tears make you blind?
What can you do when those tears make you blind?
I get so lonely, lonely, lonely
What can you do with these crying eyes of mine?
