Nothing Against You
(Robert Cray)
Nothin' against you
I don't speak
If I pass you by
Look away when we meet

If I turn my back
And walk the other way
Just leave me alone
To myself for awhile

And believe
It's nothin' against you

Now don't get me wrong
If I don't call
If I don't write
Or let you hear from me at all

If I pull my shades
When you knock on the door

Just leave me alone
To myself for awhile

And believe
Nothin' against you

Ohh, I won't see no one
Leave me alone
You don't need to see me suffer
And hear me weep and moan

Oh, it's hard enough
Just tryin' to face the day
So I don't need none of that
Sorry and all that crap

Just go away

Don't take offense
When I turn you down
But since she's been gone
I don't want anyone around

Just don't be worried about me
I know what I'm doing

Just leave me alone
To myself for awhile
And believe
It's nothin' against you

Nothin' against you
Ohh, leave me alone

Do That For Me
(Robert Cray)
Do that thing you do that makes me feel so good inside
Would you do that for me?
When you do what you do, you rock me out of my socks and shoes, baby
You know I like it

I'm 'bout to lost control
And I want you to know

Now you got my love baby, give me more of yours
Would you do that for me?
Do it for me
Gotta make you mine baby, give me some more time
Would you do that for me?
Do it for me

When I start my day, and try as hard as I can
To make sure you're feelin' good, lend a helping hand
And if you need anything, all you gotta do is tell me
There's nothing I wouldn't do, you know I'm always ready

You've got me heart and soul
And, oh, now you've got my love, baby give me more of yours
Would you do that for me?
Do it for me
Gotta make you mine, and baby kiss me one more time
Would you do that for me?
Do that for me

For me, I'll take you any way that I can
And for you, I hope the feeling is the same
I know that we can work it
Where we can spend more time together just groovin'

Could you do that for me?

I'm 'bout to make a fool of myself
About to fall on my face
If someone else would've come in
He'd catch hell trying to take my place
You can't stop this feeling that I have, that I have that's so bad for you
When you do everything that you do for me, baby

I just can't let you go
And I want you to know

Now you've got my love, baby give me more of yours
Would you do that for me?
Do it for me
Gotta make you mine, and baby kiss me one more time
Would you do that for me?

Do it
Yeah
Now that you've got it
That's the way you do it
Yeah, yeah, yeah
That's the way you do it

Now that you've got it
Yeah, yeah
Ohh!
Baby, kiss me
Ohhhhh

Oh, heah
Oh
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it

Back Home
(Robert Cray)
(intro with moaning)

If you walk alone
In darkness
Don't turn
Go the wrong way
Mmmmm

If you associate
Among the evil
Don't follow them
Down the wrong road
Mmm, mmm, mmm

You may even flirt
With a little danger
And before long
Without even knowing
It will be hard to find your way back home

(slow guitar solo)

Just turn around
See your family behind you
Don't you see the trouble?
Don't you see the trouble way up ahead?
Mmmm

Don't you know that they care
About how you're doin'?
Don't be a fool and
Lose your head
Mmmmm

Don't flirt
Don't mess with danger
Noooo
Just remember what goes around
Will come back right at you
And you may never find your way back home
No, no

You may never find your way back home
No, no

No, you may never
No

It'll be hard to find your way back home
No, no

Hey
No, no

Naw
You'll have no friends
They'll be forsaken
You mess around in the street
Your life might be taken
Oh, no

It's a real bad, bad
Bad, bad
No!

The One In The Middle
(Jim Pugh)
Sometimes at night
When I close my eyes
I see three women
All standing in a line
The one on the left
She took my heart
The one on the right
Said she wanted to be free

But the one in the middle
I still love her
And I wonder
Does she ever think of me?

In my mind
I've been to a thousand places
When I walk down the street
I stare into a thousand faces
The flame of love
Once shined so brightly
Now it's just
A slow-burning memory

But the one in the middle
I still love her
Oh, and I wonder
Does she ever think of me?

Maybe, she wouldn't even care
No, that's ok
It's all in a dream
It's all in a dream, anyway

But the one in the middle
Oh, I still love her
And I wonder, does she ever think of me?

SOLO

But the one in the middle
Ohhhhh, I still love her
And I wonder, does she ever think of me?

Little Birds
(Robert Cray)
INTRO

I see a tear in your eye
You look troubled
There's a burning down inside that won't stop
She's says what she wants is her freedom
It's hard to let love just fly away

It's so hard to understand
You're seeing double
It didn't turn out like you planned
It just went on

You can't change the way the wind blows
It just goes where it wants to

Little birds do, too

Little birds do, too

She's got wings
She's gone away

She's got wings
And all you got is shoes

She used to beat your sweet little angel

All she wants is her freedom

You can't change the way the wind blows

Noooo

Noooo

Hey!

Mmmmmm

She wants space
What you gonna do?

ohhhh

Trick Or Treat
(Otis Redding)
INTRO

You say you love me, babe
But you don't know
When I tell you I want to take you out
And you don't want to go, girl

So if you love me
(Don't say you like me)
And if you like me
(Don't say you love me)
I can't wait to have a way to find out
If it's trick or treat

I love you, babe
But you play a many pack, girl (not sure?)
Cause you know, you know, you know
That ain't where it's at, baby

Cause if you love me
(Don't say you like me)
And if you like me
(Don't say you love me)
Cause I can't wait to have a way to find out
If it's trick or treat

You can make life good, make it a drag
With all those good things you got cooking in your bag

Now I want you to treat me, baby
Cause you got just what it takes, girl
I've been tricked so many times before
With everything I've made, girl

So if you love me
(Don't say you like me)
And if you like me
(Don't say you love me)
I can't wait to have a way to find out
If it's trick or treat

What is it, baby?
Tell me, I wanna know
What is it?
Is it tricks or treats?
Gotta know, babe
Is it tricks or treats?
What's in your bag, babe
Is it tricks or treats?

Simple Things
(Robert Cray)
INTRO

Look at me
After all these years of lovin'
Can't believe I'm still the one you're dreamin' of
After all these years of love
You still want me

There's a little bit more of me than yesterday
I'm a little bit slower, look at how my hair is grayed
Thought at any time you'd turn and walk away
You still want me

You tell me that you miss me when I go away from home
Just a little overnight trip, honey has it been that long?
How could I have ever done you wrong?
You still want me

I appreciate it
Wooohoohoo
Woohoo,hoo

Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo

You look as good as the day that we first met
Look at you
The simple things that somehow I forget to say to you
Never make you blue

Look at me
After all these years of lovin'
Lucky me, I'm still the one you're dreamin' of
After all these years of love
You still want me

All these lonely years of lovin' 
You still want me

All those lonely, lonely years you suffered
You still want me, yeah

Mmmmm

Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo
Hoooo

Mmmmm

Naaa

Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo
Woo, hoo, hoo

Can't believe I'm still the one you're dreamin' of

You still want me

E             D                   E                 D

Jealous minds will tell you what they think about me

They'll show themselves in time

        D9                                                 E7#9

Not Bad For Love
(Robert Cray)
INTRO

Not bad for love
Not bad at all
Isn't it amazing?
How it's so strong

We've been around
Much too long
To let a little pain
Cut us off

Those days are gone
Love's not bad at all

Down on my love
And I was lost
Could've gave up on living
Mmmmm
But you didn't let me fall, no
No
Now just because
We don't agree
That doesn't mean
That you and I can't be together

No, no, no
I guess we're hard to keep apart
Love's not bad at all

SOLO

Down on my love
And I was lost
Could've gave up on living, uh, huh
But you didn't let me fall, no

We've been around
Much too long
To let a little shame
Go and start it all

But that was yesterday
I guess we're hard to keep apart
You have my heart

You can't keep us apart, no
Love's not bad at all, no

Mmmm, not bad at all

Daytime, midnight, and morning
I wouldn't be alive without you

I can't quit
Loving you
Not gonna quit ya

I'm paralyzed by the things that you do

All my life I've been lookin'
But always in vain
Now all of that has changed, baby
Now that I have you

All of that has changed, baby
Now that I have your love

There's no need to wake me up, no, no, no

Never gonna give you up, no, no, no
