Lonesome Train
(J.J.Cale)

Lonesome train, right on babe
Lonesome train, right on babe
Since I lost my woman, I lost my way
Mr Conductor, where is this train bound?
Mr Conductor, where is this train bound?
Is it headed up, is it headed down?
Lucky for me, I'm on the sunny side
Lucky for me, I'm on the sunny side
Since I lost my woman, it's a lonesome ride
Lonesome train, right on babe
Lonesome train, right on babe
Since I lost my woman, I lost my way

Digital Blues
(J.J.Cale)
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number
You check it out, we're all the same
You check it out, we're one again
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number
Three forty-four point six, is that really me?
Three forty-four point six, you're kidding me
How did we get into the shape we're in?
I check it out, I'm one again
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number
In the year thirty-two thirty-two, how will they remember me?
In the year thirty-two thirty-two, how will they remember me?
My appetite will be a digital code
Information in the new ?commode?
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number
I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number

Feeling In Love
(J.J.Cale)
Feeling in love, I want to testify
Little time it will take me
Feeling in love, I'm so satisfied
>From the love that you gave me
The way you make my day
The things you do and say
Feeling in love, I'm so satisfied
>From the love that you gave me
Feeling in love, I have no alibis
No kitschy lines to say
Only the truth, never no lies
Feeling in love today
You make all so light
You make everything all right
For your love, I'm so satisfied
Feeling in love today
To my life, you bring love
You're a saint, I know
You give to me a little bit of joy
>From here it seems to flow
For the times you were there
When no-one else seemed to care
For your love, I'm so satisfied
Feeling in love today
There is nothing to compare
You always seem to share
For your love, I'm so satisfied
Feeling in love today
Feeling in love today
Feeling in love today
Feeling in love today

Artificial Paradise
(J.J.Cale)
Many loves in a lifetime, they seem to go astray
Many people come and go, they never seem to stay
Sometimes I kid myself, then I realise
I'm just living in an artificial paradise
A hundred times, my hopes and dreams are blown into the air
A thousand times, it always seems no-one is really there
Then I know I'm fooling myself, I'm not so wise
I'm just living in an artificial paradise
Plastic state of mind, superficial clothes
Living in a vacuum, close to zero
Sometimes I kid myself, then I realise
I'm just living in an artificial paradise

Passion
(J.J.Cale)
Whatever happened to ole what's-her-name?
She used to be a big part of my game
Now she's gone, but her passion is still in me
I still remember the way she wore her hair
Man, we used to go most everywhere
Now she's gone, but her passion still lies in me
Some call her a shady lady, others around her
All I know, is I'm sure glad I found her
Even though she's gone, her passion still is in me
They say she drifted on to another place
You know I just can't forget her face
Even though she's gone, her passion still lies in me

Take Out Some Insurance
(J.J.Cale)
A man knock upon my door said "Don't you know you're gonna die some day
And I got a plan for you man, for when you pass away
We'll give to your mother, your kids and your wife
And all you have to give in return is your life"
   Take out some insurance, insurance today
   For tomorrow will come and take us away
Two men were gamblin' in a parlour one night
When a woman walked in with her dress up so tight
She asked the two gentlemen would they fight for her name
They got up and shot her and went back to their game
   Take out some insurance, insurance today
   For tomorrow will come and take us away
This ain't no sad song, don't cry in your beer
For one day will come when we won't be here
Somebody else will take up our game
Different place, different name
   Take out some insurance, insurance today
   For tomorrow will come and take us away
   For tomorrow will come and take us away

Jailer
(J.J.Cale)
Low-light moonlight comes through my window
But these steel bars spoil the view
You know that jailer thinks I'm guilty
He don't know that I'm passing through
Ain't no service in this prison
Ain't no women I can see
Doin' my time now, I been waiting
For that jailer, set me free
That jailer, walks around here
Like he owns my very soul
You know that jailer's got the key
Be so easy (to) let me go

Low Rider
(J.J.Cale)
She is my low rider
She is my low rider
Some say she's bad, but she's better than no rider
She carries a .45 on her hip
She takes no bother, she takes no lip
So put your hands on my rider today
She is my low rider
She is my low rider
Some say she's bad, but she's better than no rider
In the morning, I get my kicks
When she shows me all her tricks
A love of mine, you know she's fine, I say...
She is my low rider
She is my low rider
Some say she's bad, but she's better than no rider

Traces
(J.J.Cale)
Traces of loving a life I remember
Already grown by December
By spring it was gone
Traces of people and things, and places
So much a part of my life
Where did it go?
   Time has brought some changes
   Caught us by surprise
   Where is the seed, that we need
   Keeps our love alive
Traces of lines that lead back to nowhere
Forgotten memories of yesteryear
That's all gone
   Time has brought some changes
   Caught us by surprise
   Where is the seed, that we need
   Keeps our love alive
Traces of lines that lead back to nowhere
Forgotten memories of yesteryear
That's all gone

She's In Love
(J.J.Cale)
She hangs around with another guy I met only yesterday
He's a hard cold cooker, a fine looker
He took that woman away
He took my woman away
   She's in love, she's in love with another man
   That's the way it goes
   She's in love, she's in love with another man
   A hard cold cooker, he really shook her
   If you see her, it really shows
He drives a fine set of wheels, let me tell you
He's got diamonds in his ears
He's a real jim-dandy, with her he's so handy
Such a scene, make you break out in tears
Such a scene, make you break out in tears
   She's in love, she's in love with another man
   That's the way it goes
   She's in love, she's in love with another man
   A hard cold cooker, he really shook her
   If you see her, it really shows
If you see her, tell her I still love her
No matter what, no matter when
It will be a good day when he goes away
And she comes back round again
And she comes back round again
   She's in love, she's in love with some other man
   That's the way it goes
   She's in love, she's in love with another man
   A hard cold cooker, he really shook her
   If you see her, it really shows

Shady Grove
(J.J.Cale)
Down the road, and up the hill
Round the bend, and behind the mill
When just a kid I used to go
To a place called Shady Grove
That is where I first met her
She changed my life with one just one word
She called it love but I don't know
I call it goin' down to Shady Grove
Shady Grove, Shady Grove
In the middle of Shady Grove
Sometimes we'd steal away at night
All the same the feel was right
There was no city, there was no town
'Cause Shady Grove was all around
We'd just lay down look up and see
The vast expanse of the old, old tree
When our love had turned to lust
Shady Grove would cover us
Shady Grove, Shady Grove
In the middle of Shady Grove
No one would ever come by
We were young and very shy
It seemed to wrap around us both
The place we called Shady Grove
Not long ago to my surprise
I seemed to have two ____ ___ ___
I went back to that same old spot
The trees were gone - it's a parking lot
Shady Grove, Shady Grove
In the middle of Shady Grove

Roll On Mama
(J.J.Cale)
Jump in woman, now the jumpin' is right
I'm the kind of man don't sleep at night
Heart gets a-beatin' when a place sound funky
I gotta roll on, Mama
Things been movin' too slow
Hesitating, reservatin', making my move
Rotatin', motivatin', I gotta go
Feet keep a-walking and your mouth keep a-talking, you know
I gotta roll on, Mama
Things been movin' too slow
Until you measure my height and my size
If I don't die runnin', I won't be alive
Give me my things, show me to the door
I gotta roll on, Mama
I can't hang no more
I take your Cadillac DeVille with a continental kit
Rollin' down the highway, and then I fit
Fakin', shakin', that's all I know
I gotta roll on, Mama
Things been movin' too slow
