Rack 'em Up
by Bruce McCabe, recording 1997, from Lie To Me (A&M 540640)
I used to hang out, down at Jack's Pool Hall
You go down there, don't do nothin' at all
You wanted to play some cards there
was a game in the back
You wanted to shoot of somethin',
you went and talked to Jack
If you had a little money you was a grade A fool
There was a guy down there
who used to shoot a little pool

Rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up

Till the day he was dead,
that all they ever said was rack Ďem up
He didn't own a TV set, he didn't own no car
He ate whatever Jack was makin' back behind the bar
They said he had a wife but, she left him in tears
He hadn't been home once in twenty-five years

Rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up

They come from all over thinkin' they were pretty hot
They put the money on the table,
wanna play the best we got
Nine in the corner, five in the side
Take a hundred dollar bill and just, let it ride
I'd tell him, "listen hear sonny, there ain't no disaster
there ain't no shame in bein' beaten by a master"

Rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up
Yea, rack Ďem up
Rack Ďem up, rack Ďem up

Till the day he was gone,
they said it all day long rack Ďem up

Right Back
by Jerry Lynn Williams/Danny Kortchmar, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
Well you keep on talkin' bout it
Till you're stone cold blue in the face
But there ain't nothing darling
That true love can't replace

Ya, you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Ya, you're right back, right back,
Doin' the same old things again

Well you're money hungry
And your heart is full of greed
Tellin' everybody you get everything you need

So you say

You're right, right back
Doin' the same old thing again

Ya for me it's the same old movie
Same movie just a different scene
Never meaning what you're sayin'
Never sayin' what you mean

Now you're right, right back
Trying to pretend
Ya I said, you're right, right back
Doin' the same old thing again

You're money hungry
And you're heart is full of greed
Tellin' everybody you get everything you need

You know it's a lie

And now you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Doin' the same old thing again

Ya you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Ya you're right, right back
Doin' the same old things again

Ahhhh

Right back
Right back
Right back

Now you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Doin' the same old thing again
Right back, tryin' to pretend
Right back doin' the same old thing again
Right back
Right back

Second Guessing
by David Z./Bruce McCabe, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
Second guessin' first impressions, there you go again
Rushing off in all directions, since I don't know when
All day long you're building walls, you're building walls all day
Putting ceilings on your feelings, when they should fly away

Don't you think it's time you quit it
Don't you think it's time you admit it
Your heart is more worthy of trust,
than the thoughts in your mind that sit there gathering dust

Everything you're looking for, you'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it, by the way you feel

Writing down your deepest emotions, with your pen in hand
Your piece of paper flew out the window, you watched it try and land
You felt bad as it flew out of sight, a part of your heart alone in the night
All of a sudden you didn't mind it, when you pictured that lonely stranger that would find it

Everything you're looking for, you'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it, by the way you feel

Still Rainin'
by Bruce McCabe, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
Clouds, one by one, fill the sky,
just like these tears that fill my eyes
I know by now she ain't comin' back,
I watch my world slowly fade into black

Look out my window it's still rainin'
Look out my window it's still rainin'

They say that time heals everything,
I've felt the pain that love can bring
It don't get no better with each passing day,
any hope I had is slowly slipping away

Look out my window, it's still rainin'
Look out my window, it's still rainin'

I thought the morning would rescue me,
but the rain keeps falling endlessly, endlessly
Sometimes I wonder what'll become of me,
there ain't much left of what I used to be
Her love shone on me like the morning light,
now here I am alone again tonight

Look out my window, it's still rainin'
Look out my window, it's still rainin'

Still Wonder
by Kevin Bowe/Jonny Lang, recording of 1997, from Lie To Me (A&M 540640)
I wonder about her, I wonder where she went from here
Still wonder about her, but nothingís cominí in too clear
Ssince she left me all alone my days go by like years

Well Iím thinkiní about her, and all the things she used to say
Still Iím thinkiní about her, but somethingís getting in the way
I remember when she told me she would up and leave me someday

I drive around in circles through the city
Just waitiní for the lights to change
But right about when midnight hits me
Moonlight gets me feeliní kind of crazy

I wonder about her, does she still wear that same old ring
I still wonder about her and I know it ainít no big thing
Well she left me all alone now, and Iím just waiting for my phone to ring

Iíve been dreaming about her, I guess I never really knew,
that living without her was more than I could ever do
Because she ainít cominí back, no she ainít cominí back,
No she ainít cominí back, 'cause there's nothiní left to come back to

Sugarman
by Jonny Lang, recording of 1995, from Smokin' (Oarfin 9523)
Oh how I love you babe, how I wish you were mine

I would candy coat you with my affection babe,
and I'd love you all the time

All my love is so sweet, almost good enough for you to eat

Not too big on thinking, not so big I'm outta size
When you see how big is my lovin', honey you'll finally realize that I'm
I'm your sugarman, all my love is so sweet

I got more candy for you babe,
than any man you'll ever meet

Some men bring you flowers, some men diamond rings
Come into my candy store babe, I got everything

'Cause I'm your sugarman babe, all my love is so sweet

Down deep I got a great big heart,
from a last sincerin' time that beats,
you know I'm your sugarman babe

The Levee
by Kevin Bowe, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
I have been to Memphis but I couldn't find no peace
My soul is feeling restless and I need some relief
I'm heading for the Delta, see what I can find
I know the river holds the answers
that'll ease my worried mind

Take me down to the levee1 where the women sing
Lay me down like an angel with a broken wing
Take me down to the levee where the river flows,
gon' throw my blues off the levee and let them go

Well, I have been to Natchez, been down to Baton Rouge,
but the Delta keeps on callin' me no matter what I do

Chorus

I'm drivin' through the darkness, down Highway 61,
heading for the crossroads like the ones before me done
__________
Note 1: origin: from the old French word levťe, act of raising, from lever to raise. An embankment for preventing flooding, or a river landing place, also, a continuous dike or ridge (as of earth) for confining the irrigation areas of land to be flooded. A levee camp therefore is a work camp for building or improving dikes to prevent rivers from flooding the land, primarily in the Mississippi Delta area.

There's Gotta Be A Change
by Gwendolyn Collins, recording of 1997, from Lie To Me (A&M 540640)
Oh, thereís got to be a change,
things just canít stay the same
If I got any worse off,
Iíd have myself to blame

Iíve played the blues so long now,
there ainít nothiní left for me to do
I just canít give it up,
if I do my life would be through

Well now Iíve been to Kentucky, Chicago too,
all over St. Louis, ainít nothiní left to do, baby
But Iíll play the blues for you, yes I will,
well Iíve been down to Texas,
to the international revenue

I ainít got no money now, honey now,
ainít nothiní left to do
Well Iíll play the blues for you

Too Tired
by Jonny Lang, recording of 1995, from Smokin' (Oarfin 9523)
Well I laid down last night, too tired to wake
I had a chill this mornin', too tired to shake
I got a good poker hand, too tired to win
I can hear my baby callin', too tired to let her in

Well I'm tired, yes I'm tired babe
Too tired now, too tired for anything

Too tired to walk , too tired to run
I can hear my baby knockin'
Too tired
Too tired
Too tired babe, yes I'm tired
Too tired now
Too tired for anything
Break it down now

Too tired of prosperity, too tired o' luck
I'm sittin' on a pin, I'm too tired to get up
Well I'm tired, yes I'm tired babe
Too tired now
Too tired for anything, I'm tired babe

Walking Away
by Jonny Lang, Jerry Lynn Williams, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
You can cry
But don't cry for me
I can't take it no more
That's the way it must be

You can't lie
You're way back in
Back into my heart
I won't let it be broken again

I took a tumble
I started to stumble
That's when I fell
Into a love
A thought came from above
I was under your spell

The things that mattered
Were broken and shattered
One by one

I was so sad
But now I'm glad
It's over and over

There's just one more thing
That I want to say
I truly loved you
But now I'm walking away
I put no one above you
That's why I'm walking away

Wander This World
by Paul Diethelm/Bruce McCabe, recording of 1998, from Wander This World (A&M 540984)
The tar in the street starts to melt from the heat,
and the sweats runnin' down from my hair
I walked 20 miles and I'm dragging my feet,
and I'll walk 20 more I don't care

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

I'm like a ghost some people can't see,
others drive by and stare
A shadow that drifts by the side of the road,
it's like I'm not even there

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

Well I've never been part of the game,
the life that I live is my own
All that I know is that I was born,
to wander this world all alone, all alone

Some people are born with their lives all laid out,
and all their success is assured
Some people work hard all their lives for nothin'
They take it and don't say a word,
they don't say a word

Sometimes it's like I don't even exist,
even God has lost track of my soul
Why else would he leave me out here like this,
to wander this world all alone

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

When I Come To You
by Jonny Lang/Dennis Morgan, recording of 1997, from Lie To Me (A&M 540640)
When Iím all alone, when Iím feeliní Blue
No one understands me, baby, nobody but you

Through all the sleepless nights, and the rainy day till the sun is nowhere in view
The only way I make it through is when I come to you,
and in my darkest hour, when the midnight shadows fall
Baby you got the power to make the angels come to call

I just hold you in my arms, and let music in my heart play the whole night through
When I come to you, I felt so brand new, when I come to you

When I come to you, you make it all right again
When I come to you, you keep me from the howliní wind,
and feel brand new, when I come to you
