All Your Love
(Otis Rush/Willie Dixon) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)
All the love I miss loving, all the kiss I miss kissing
All the love I miss loving, all the kiss I miss kissing
Before I met you baby, never knew what I was missing

All your love, pretty baby, that I got in store for you
All your love, pretty baby, that I got in store for you
I love you pretty baby, well I say you love me too

All your loving, pretty baby, all your loving, pretty baby
All your loving, pretty baby, all your loving, pretty baby
Since I first met you baby, I never knew what I was missing

Hey, hey baby, hey, hey baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby, oh, oh, baby
Since I first met you baby, never knew what I was missing

Another Man
(traditional) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

Another man done gone
Another man done gone
Another man done gone, another man done gone, another man done gone

On the country farm
He's on the country farm, on the country farm, he's on the country farm

Another man done gone
Another man done gone, another man done gone, another man done gone

I don't know his name
Didn't know his name, I didn't know his name, I didn't know his name

Crying
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Iím crying
Yes, Iím crying
And I just donít know
How itís all going to end
Iím thinking back a long time
When I hit my woman down
It was a bad bad evil night
When I realized what Iíd done
It was way too late, too late
Too late for words and Iím crying

In torment sometimes
We hurt each other so bad
Nobody to turn to, no going back
No such thing as God for us
No more to touch her body
No more to stroke her hair
All I can do is break down in tears
Iím crying and wondering
Where am I now because of what I did
I just donít know and Iím crying

It was a long time ago
The pain is over now
But I still think back sometimes
And remember how I cried
I was crying

Deep Blues Sea
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

My loving woman and me lying in the sand
Weíre on a holiday out in a foreign land
Sunny day
We can play
Lazing by the deep blue sea
Happy now that we are free
This is how it ought to be
We are on our own

Go underwater and see another world of green
Fishes go by and I get to wondering where theyíve been
Sunny day
We can play
Lazing by the deep blue sea
Happy now that we are free
This is how it ought to be
We are on our own

Take out a boat and paddle it around the bay
Pressures from the world seem to fade away
Sunny day
We can play
Sailing on the deep blue sea
Happy now that we are free
This is how it ought to be
We are on our own

Double Crossing Time
(John Mayall/Eric Clapton) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time
It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time
When you think you got good buddies, they will spin around and cheat you blind

Double crossing man is mean, he will try to make it so you lose
Double crossing man, he will try to make it so you lose
You'll fill your mind with worry, you know he hurt me with the blues

Have You Heard
(John Mayall) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

Have you heard about my baby?
Yes, how I love her you don't know
Have you heard about my baby?
How I love, how I love her you don't know
I declare it hurt me so bad,
Yes, when I heard she'd got to go

Have you heard about my baby?
Yes I tried, yes I tried, but I let her down
Heard about my baby?
Ooh yes, I tried and I let her down
Ooh, she burned me with her love
Yes, no other, no other will wear her crown

Yes, indeed

Have you heard about my baby?
Where she gone, where she gone, I just don't know
Yes, have you heard about my baby?
Ooh, where she gone, where she gone, I just don't know
Well, if you should see my baby
Yes, please tell her that I love her so

Yes, no more next time

It Ain't Right
(Walter Jacobs/Little Walter) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

You know it ain't right just to treat me this a way
Well, you know it ain't right just to treat me this a way
Well, you know, my baby, have you home one day

You know it ain't right just to treat me like you do
Well, you know it ain't right just to treat me like you do
Well, you know, my baby, coming home to you

You know it ain't right, baby, stay out all night long
Well, you know it ain't right, baby, stay out all night long
Well, you know, my baby, you done something wrong

Key To Love
(John Mayall) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

I never realized that you were in pain
I wanna help you honey, let me see you again
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough
Life is so bad, baby, when I find the key to love

Put a smile on your face and dry away your tears
Life is bound to get better as you live your years
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough
Life is so bad, baby, when I find the key to love

Somewhere in this world, the one you waited for
Come along and find you, turn the key your door
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough
Life is so bad, baby, when you find the key to love

You're gonna be mine, little girl, you've been through 18 years of pain
You're gonna be mine, little girl, you've been through 18 years of pain
I'm gonna give you a love, child, you won't feel bad again

You've been mistreated, little girl, but I swear, I swear it'll be outgrown
You've been mistreated, little girl, but I swear, I swear it'll be outgrown
I'm gonna give you a love, child, something you've never known

You're gonna be mine, little girl, even if I can't have you by my side
You're gonna be mine, little girl, even if I can't have you by my side
You're gonna remember the love, child, that made you satisfied

My Pretty Girl
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

My pretty girl is sitting in her room of red
My pretty girl lying on her furry bed
Pretty as the moonlight
I only want to treat her right

My pretty girl doing something to her hair
My pretty girl dressing up with special care
Pretty as the moonlight
I only want to treat her right

My pretty girl making me feel her man
My pretty girl hugging me when she can
Pretty as the moonlight
I only want to treat her right

My pretty girl sleeping in the still of night
My pretty girl glowing in the candlelight
Pretty as the moonlight
I only want to treat her right

Nature's Disappearing
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Manís a filthy creature
Raping the land and water and the air
Tomorrow may be too late?
Nowís the time that you must be aware
Natureís disappearing
Polluted death is coming, do you care?

Garbage going nowhere
Soon the dumps will spread to your front door
Lakes and rivers stagnant
Nothing lives or grows like years before
Natureís disappearing
The world you take for granted ... soon no more

Read about pollution
Make manufacturers uncomfortable
Boycott at the market
Containers that are non-returnable
Aluminum, glass or plastic
Eternal waste thatís not destructible

Weíre of a generation
That may live out our natural time
But as for all our children?
Born to suffocate in human slime
Natureís disappearing
And we are guilty of this massive crime

Night Flyer
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Lying awake in the darkness
Your voice is sad in my ear
Now that Iíve just put the phone down
How do you expect me to sleep with you so far away?

Iím calling the desk for a taxi
The night is so black with the rain
All of my friends are still sleeping
They would never know I was planning to be gone again

Iím the night flyer, Iím waiting
Somebody get me a plane
Airports at night always empty
I smoke too much sitting here

Iím coming home to you darling
Out of the darkness till day
Though you will tell me Iím crazy
How do you expect me to sleep with you so far away?

Off The Road
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Iíve traveled the world and had no time to rest
Iíve played for people every day
Living from a suitcase from town to town
Till my nerves began to fray
Dreaming of the day Iíd stay at home

I feel like Iíve been on the move too long
Eight years of on the road
Got me a place in the burning sun
Found me the way to go
Iím building up a house to make a home

Found a great love I was looking for
Two people now are one
Her clothes in the closet and her with me
Everything is always fun
Once we had a house but now itís home

Build up your rooms and decorate your walls
Thatís all you have to do
Work in your way till you find your peace
And life can be made for you
Itís good to fell the peace and quiet of home

Parchman Farm
(Mose Allison) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm1
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm
Ain't never done no man no harm

Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack
Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack
Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack
A twelve-gauge shotgun at my back

I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm
Ain't never done no man no harm

Possessive Emotions
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Possessive emotions creeping up on me
I wish my emotions had less jealousy
Donít want you to be with nobody else but me
Wherever you are thatís where I want to be

Is it wrong to feel this way?
Jealousy go away

When you are out shopping and Iím home alone
Possessive emotions make me wish Iíd gone
I look for your car lights coming up the hill
Want to tell you I miss you ... just canít get my fill

Possessive emotions make me feel so low
Donít want to be lonesome Ďcause it hurts me so
Iíve got to be with you everywhere you go
If you talk to somebody I just got to know

Is it wrong to feel this way?
Jealousy go away

If I didnít feel this way about my girl
That she was the only one in all the world
I wouldnít be caring for her quite so strong
Maybe itís why my love has been going so long

Ramblin' On My Mind
(Robert Johnson) recording of 1966, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind
I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind
Is to leave my baby, 'cause she treat me so unkind

I'm going down to the station, catch that old first mail train I see
I'm going down to the station, catch that old first mail train I see
I got the blues 'bout miss so-and-so, and her son's got the blues about me

I got mean things, I got mean things all on my mind
Lil girl, lil girl, I got mean things all on my mind
Is to leave my baby, 'cause she treat me so unkind

Ridin' On The L&N
(Burley/Hampton) recording of April 19-21 1987, Frankfurt, Germany, from Life in the Jungle: Charly Blues Masterworks 4 (Charly BM4)

Around the bend in the L&N1
They loaded it down with a lot of men
The whistle blow and through the switch2
Nobody knew just-a which one switch
I'm ridin', ridin on the L&N
I ain't jivin', ridin' on the L&N

Well a man named Quin on the L&N
Runnin'3 around on how she's been
Train slowed down and the men jumped off
I wasn't dead 'cause I heard him callin'
I'm ridin', ridin' on the L&N
I ain't jivin', ridin' on the L&N

A man named Mose with a great big nose
Sleepin' on that pile of toes
The doctor came and he rang the bell
The palla alla4 get well, well, well
I'm ridin', ridin' on the L&N
I ain't jivin', ridin' on the L&N

(Spoken: Walter Trout on guitar!)

Sensitive Kind
(John Mayall) recording of 1990, from Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Deram 800086 or Mobile Fidelity 616)

Don't take her for granted,
She's had a hard time,
Don't misunderstand her,
Or play with her mind.

Treat her so gently,
It will pay you in time,
'Cause you gotta know,
She's the sensitive kind.

Tell her you love her,
Each and every night,
You will discover,
She will treat you right.
		
If you'll believe,
I know you will find,
There ain't nothing like,
The sensitive kind.

Guitarsolo

She get's so lonely,
Waiting for you,
You are the only,
Thing that'll help her through.
		
Don't take her for granted,
She's having a hard time,
You gotta know,
She's the sensitive kind
		
If you'll believe,
I know you will find,
There ain't nothing like,
The sensitive kind.

Took The Car
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Took the car and drove off the hills
Saw the flashing lights and saw them die
Left behind society that kills
Me and Nancy waved them all goodbye

Took the car, the sun was going down
Saw the changing colors of the sky
An old Apache canyon out campground
Secure and safe together made us sigh

Took the car and filled the trunk with wood
Took it back and made of it a fire
To be a child again would be so good
Me and Nancy warm in our desire

Took the car and drove it everywhere
Through the land where all the West began
Desert wind was blowing in our hair
Me and Nancy running hand in hand

Where Did My Legs Go To?
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

Get my lips to a bottle every once in a while
Now everythingís crazy, I got a great big smile
But the question Iím asking
Where did my legs go?

Vision doubling and trembling, Iím getting dizzy with light
I got the laziest feeling, Iím feeling all right
But the question Iím asking
Where did my legs go?

Will you pour me another, 'cause I feel like a king
If I tried to go walking it would be a good thing
But the question Iím asking
Where did my legs go?

Iím a lunatic whino, Iím a talking machine
Iím wide awake sleeping, is it really a dream?
But if it isnít a dream then
Where did my legs go?

You Must Be Crazy
(John Mayall) recording of 1970, from U.S.A. Union (Polygram 527458)

You must be crazy woman
If you donít believe that I love you
When you cry and get unhappy
You donít know how it hurts me too

With a little understanding
Weíll get to know each otherís ways
With a little bit of patience
Weíd never have unhappy days

I love your lovemaking
Never knew it could be such a game
If you ever left me lonely
I know Iíd never be the same

You must be going crazy
If you donít believe that Iím with you
If I had to live without you
I donít know what Iíd ever do
