Crying
(J.J.Cale)

Every time I see you, all that you do
Crying, crying, crying
You've been shedding them tears for too many years
Crying, crying, crying
You've been lonely too long, something went wrong
Did he leave you again with them blues?
Your sun don't shine, your day's no _____
Crying, crying, crying
You've been lonely too long, something went wrong
Did he leave you again with them blues?
Happy your day, I'm comin' your way
No more crying, crying, crying

I'll Be There If You Ever Want Me
(Rusty Gabbard and Ray Price)
There ain't no chains strong enough to hold me
Ain't no breeze big enough to slow me
Never have seen a river that's too wide
There ain't no jail tight enough to lock me
Ain't no man big enough to stop me
I'll be there if you ever want me by your side
There ain't no rope stout enough to bind me
Look for me, honey, you will find me
Any old time, get ready with your charm
I'll be there ready and a-waiting
There won't be any hesitating
I'll be there if you ever want me in your arms
Love me, if you're ever going to love me
Never have seen a road too rough to ride
There ain't no chain strong enough to hold me
Ain't no breeze big enough to slow me
I'll be there if you ever want me by your side

Starbound
(J.J.Cale)
When you and I are ready, no longer earthly-bound
We'll travel through the crystal night, starbound
Heaven holds a mystery, wrapped inside a sound
Through the eyes of ______ time, starbound, you and I
A floating star is what we are
Suspended in space
Outward-bound it's the only home we've found
To save the human race
Speed is now their captain, kings that lost their crown
Motion is our master, starbound
Starbound
Starbound

Rock And Roll Records
(J.J.Cale)
I make rock 'n' roll records
I sell 'em for a dime
I make my living and feed my children
All in good time
The blues they go for a quarter
Guaranteed to satisfy
It's a real funky deal
Don't let it pass you by
If your evening sun don't shine, my friend
Tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna hammer out this rhythm
Till I get right next to you

The Old Man And Me
(J.J.Cale)
The old man he catches the fish in the morning
He rides the river every day
I sit on the bank and I holler when he passes
"Hey, old man, are they biting today?"
I wake up in the morning, thinking 'bout my troubles
I go down to the water and they pass away
And when the old man comes a-floating down the river
"Hey, old man, are they biting today?"
Now here we've got a thing that keeps on rolling
It ain't heavy, don't take it that way
The old man and me, we got a good thing going
He gets his fish and I sit all day
He gets his fish and I sit all day...

Everlovin' Woman
(J.J.Cale)
_______ woman, I love her, lordy lord.
She cooks my breakfast on Sunday, just like my ma
I hang my hat in her house, she don't charge a dime
Love me, trust me, never cuss me, you know she's mine
I'm talking 'bout, I'm talking 'bout, I'm talking in rhyme
I'm talking 'bout that everlovin' woman of mine
Oh, when I'm gone you know she don't hang around
And when I'm gone you know she don't follow me down
She keeps the night-light burning, lord, she waits for me
Taking care of business, lord, she's taking care of me
I'm talking 'bout, I'm talking 'bout, I'm talking in rhyme
I'm talking 'bout that everlovin' woman of mine
She'd have me do it if I'd do it at all
You know I love her, do I love her, lordy-lord
I hang my hat in her house, honey, she don't charge a dime
Taking care of business, she's taking care of business of mine
I'm talking 'bout, I'm talking in rhyme
I'm talking 'bout that everlovin' woman of mine

Cajun Moon
(J.J.Cale)
Cajun moon, where does your power lie?
As you move across the southern sky
You took my babe way too soon
What have you done, Cajun moon?
Someday babe, when you want your man
And you find him gone, just like the wind
Don't trouble your mind whatever you do
'Cause Cajun moon took him from you
When daylight fades, the night comes on
You can hear the silence of this song
Don't trouble your mind whatever you do
'Cause he got me like he got you

I'd Like To Love You Baby
(J.J.Cale)
I'd like to love you baby and keep my other baby too
Put my arms around you, that's all I want to do
If the sun don't shine tomorrow, I know I've got you
I'd like to love you baby and keep my other baby too
Sometimes my baby's sleeping, sometimes she's not around
Sometimes I look to find her, I know she'll put me down
Oh, won't you let me hold you, let me lean on you
I'd like to love you baby and keep my other baby too
If the sun don't shine tomorrow, I know I've got you
I'd like to love you baby and keep my other baby too

Any Way The Wind Blows
(J.J.Cale)
Some like this and some like that
And some don't know where it's at
If you don't get loose, if you don't groove
Well, your motor won't make it and your motor won't move
If time don't tell you then don't ask me
I'm riding on a hurricane down to the sea
If you can't hear the music, turn it up loud
There's movement in the air and movement in the crowd
Bow-legged woman doing the boogaloo
She got a jive, she got a move
Turn around, do it again
Bow-legged woman, where you been?
Fat Jack owns a honky-tonk downtown
You can catch a woman if you hang around
You can tear down the door, tear down the wall
Fat Jack he don't care at all
Easy come, easy go
Any way the wind blows
Hey, drummer, drummer, can you give me that beat?
Can you give me that beat, got to move my feet
Guitar player been all around the world
But he can't play a lick for looking at the girls
One two three four five six seven
Well, you'd better change your ways or you won't get to heaven
Eight nine ten, gonna stop at eleven
Eleven just lays around with seven
Some like this and some like that
And some don't know where it's at
If you don't get loose, if you don't groove
Well, your motor won't make it and your motor won't move
Easy come, easy go
Any way the wind blows

Precious Memories
(J.J.Cale)
Hell, I travel on life's pathways
Know not what the years may hold
Hell, I've wandered, oh, grows fonder
Precious memories flood my soul
Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious sacred scenes unfold

I Got The Same Old Blues
(J.J.Cale)
Have you heard that rumour that's going around?
You got it made, way across town
It's the same old story, tell me where does it end?
Yes, I heard the news, it's the same old blues again
When I wrote you a letter, you must have read it wrong
I stood at your doorway, but you was gone
I took a lot of courage and let the telephone ring
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
When you give me the business, you know I get a mind
'Cause I've got a lot of patience and I've got a lot of time
It's the same old story, tell me where does it end?
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
I'm gonna find me a mountain, I'm gonna hide out
I ain't talking to you and I ain't coming out
Yeah, I heard that rumour, tell me where does it end?
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
