Hey Baby
(J.J.Cale)

Hey baby, it's your time now
Hey baby, you made it somehow
Don't let nobody come and bring you down
Hey baby, you've got 'em on the run
You know, you've got 'em on the run
I know you, you have just begun
When you came into my life
My love, I thought I would die
There's never been nobody like you
You take away these blues
Hey baby, you're looking real good
You know, you're looking real good
You make the day a song like I knew you would
When you came into my life
Lord, I thought I would die
I never met nobody like you
For telling my troubles to

Travelin' Light
(J.J.Cale)
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly
Travelin' light, just you and I
One-way ticket to ecstasy
Way on down, follow me
Travelin' light, we can go beyond
Travelin' light, we can catch the wind
Travelin' light, let your mind pretend
We can go to paradise
Maybe once, maybe twice
Travelin' light, is the only way to fly

You Got Something
(J.J.Cale)
You don't look like my baby
And you don't feel quite the same
You don't touch quite like my woman
But you got something I can't explain
The way you wear your clothes drives me crazy
The way you walk around, just hanging 'round
I can't stand it, what you're doing
You got something I can't live without
The way you wear your clothes drives me crazy
The way you walk around, just hanging out
I can't stand it, what you're doing
You got something I can't live without

Ride Me High
(J.J.Cale)
Low-down way you're feeling, the sexy things you do
Baby, baby, baby, let me talk to you
I just love to whisper in your sexy ear
Tell you that I love you, take away your fear
Destroy your inhibitions, ridin' back the day
Low-down, slow down, keeping low down in that funky way
Higher, higher, higher, how high can you go?
Ride me high this morning, ride me high some more
The way you move your body, it is a crying shame
I won't tell nobody if you will do the same
If you leave tomorrow, one thing that's for sure
The more you get, the more you've got, the more you want some more
Higher, higher, higher, how high can you go?
Ride me high this morning, ride me high some more
Higher, higher, higher, how high can you go?
Ride me high this morning, ride me high some more...

Hold On
(J.J.Cale)
First time I seen you, I knew
You had come undone for someone mistreated you
The ringing in your ears, the salt in your tears
Yes, I know I would feel sick at a dirty deal, yes I do
Some bright morning, the sun will shine again
Some bright morning, start all over again
Hold on, you've got to hold on
If nothing is real, I know how it feels, yes I do
Hold on, when everything is gone
I know how it feels to get a dirty deal, I do

Cocaine
(J.J.Cale)
If you want to hang out, you've got to take her out, cocaine
If you want to get down, down on the ground, cocaine
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, cocaine
If you've got bad news, you want to kick them blues, cocaine
When your day is done and you want to ride on, cocaine
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, cocaine
If your thing is gone and you want to ride on, cocaine
Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back, cocaine
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, cocaine

I'm A Gypsy Man
(Sonny Curtis)
I'm a gypsy man on a one-night stand
Am I fit to be loved by you?
I'm with a gypsy van, just travelling the land
They'll be leaving in the morning, I'll be leaving too
Things like love don't tie me down
I just spread my love around
Like small change on girls I don't know
I'm a gypsy man on a one-night stand
Gonna have some fun before I have to go
Don't you cry and don't you weep, close your eyes and go to sleep
I've had you in my arms too long
What fortunes did I bring, golden earrings
When you wake up in the morning I'll be gone

The Woman That Got Away
(J.J.Cale)
Well, I've been out on the street since yesterday
Been looking for the woman that got away
A long-legged thing with a red dress on
The kind of woman you can't leave alone
Listen, if you see her, send her my way
Looking for the woman that got away
The last time I seen her she was looking good
I had a feeling that she understood
She slipped through my fingers in the middle of the night
I've gotta find my woman and treat her right
Listen, if you see her, send her my way
Looking for the woman that got away
If I ever get my hands on that woman again
I'm gonna lock my door and keep her in
She won't do no travelling, won't follow me 'round
I'm gonna keep my woman and leave town

Super Blue
(J.J.Cale)
Days are longer by yourself
You sold your soul to someone else
Now you're paying, can't you see?
You want to pass it back to me
Told you once, told you twice
When you're gone don't expect to come back
Things don't work out like I planned...
'Cause you've got yourself another man
Danger signal, danger ahead
I know you'd be better if you thought, if you thought I was dead
I won't tell you, I won't tell you no lie
I'll come back and haunt you as another guy
Things don't work out like I planned them
'Cause you've got yourself another man

Let Me Do It To You
(J.J.Cale)
Mmmmmm... Let me do it to you
Mmmmmm... Let me do it to you
Mmmmmm... Let me do it to you
Mmmmmm... Let me do it to you

Cherry
(J.J.Cale)
Cherry, I'd like to love you
Cherry, will you love me too?
Someday I will take you away, that's all I want to do
I'll love you forever, Cherry...Will you love me too?
Sweet as a morning sunrise
Fresh as a mountain dew
Someday I will love you Cherry, will you love me too?
I need you forever, Cherry... Will you need me too?
I'll love you forever Cherry, will you love me too?
Cherry, will you love me too?

You Got Me On So Bad
(J.J.Cale)
Ooh Baby, you got me on so bad
I think that you're the wickedest woman that I ever had
Sometimes you make me feel so complete
You take away my troubles, put my mind at ease
Baby, you're up to your old tricks
I've got something wrong right here and I know that you can fix
Sometimes you treat me like I was your natural man
I come down here to you, babe, every chance I can
Baby, you feel so good to me
I do believe that you take away my misery
Sometimes I wonder if you understand
The way you handle yourself, woman, has got me on again
