Moan
(Robert Cray)
(Intro)

I Gotta moan
I don't feel so good this morning
Ohhh
My baby's been gone a long time

Why did you have to go?
Why did you have to leave?
Ewww
Can't stand being alone

I All I do is cry
And moan

I remember you used to love me in the morning
Ohh, you used to
Bring my coffee to my bed

I remember when you used to squeeze me
And rub my little achin' head
Squeeze me tight   (?)

All I do
Is cry
And moan

I remember the good ole days
I never dreamed that there was a price to pay
Tried, tried, ohhh    (??)

If I had just one more day
Maybe there's a chance that I could have made her stay
But now you're gone, and ohhhh

(Guitar solo)

I remember the good ole days
I never dreamed that there was a price to pay
Tried, tried, sooo    (??)

If I had just one more day
Maybe there's a chance that I could have made her stay
But, oh, now you're gone, and ohhhh

All I do is weep and moan
Hey!

I don't feel so good this morning
Why did you have to go away?
Why did you have to leave?
Ewww, can't stand being alone

I All I do is cry
And moan

Hey, I
All I do is cry
And moan

Hey, I
All I do is cry
And moan

I remember when
Oh

I remember when
Hey
I don't feel so good this morning

Ewwwwwwww!!

I'll Go On
(Robert Cray)
(Intro)

Hey!

Now I've look for you everywhere
But I can't find 'ya
No, no, no

Last time I saw 'ya you were talking on the phone
And after that you ran out the door
And I'll go on
Lovin' you

You might be at the neighbor's
Cause you and her like to take tea once and a while
You might have the car and gone over to Macy's 
Cause I know you're a little behind in style

And I'll go on
Loving you
Yeah
Hey, baby
Hey

(Guitar solo)

Why didn't you come home last night?
Why did you not call me?
When are you gonna come home and squeeze his man?
Cause don't you know that I'm feelin' real lonely

And I'll go on
Loving you

And I'll go on
You know I'll go on, baby
Lovin' you

Hey!!

Steppin' Out
(Randle/Grimes/Hall)
(Intro)

I'm so fed up
Girl, I've had enough
I'm steppin' out tonight

Girl, you're playin' around
Sure enough gonna get me down
I'm steppin' out tonight

Down to the end of my rope
And I've get to get lose 
Get a lose before I choke

Ain't no use in you
Beggin' me not to go
I'm steppin' out tonight

Last night you left home
Said you was goin' to your momma's place
That's what I believed

But your mama said
She hadn't seen your face
Girl, you steppin' out on me

Trying to pull the wool over my eyes
But I've been knowin' you too long, baby
For you to try to lie

So don't look at me
So doggoned surprised
I'm steppin' out tonight

(Guitar solo)

Girl, you've put my patience to the test
And I'm gettin' tired, baby
Tired of all your mess

So excuse me
Excuse me while I get dressed
I'm steppin' out tonight

Steppin' out tonight
Steppin' out tonight
Got to get lose
Steppin' out tonight
Hey
Got to get away, baby
Yeah, steppin' out tonight
Hey

Never Mattered Much
(Robert Cray)
(Guitar intro)

Like a stone
You can't hurt me

Like that old oaktree
I'm as strong as I could be

Like a clock that moves
But goes nowhere

I know just when it's time for me to leave

So this love affair is all over
And it's all right with me

It's hard to make
Nothing go anywhere

It's never really mattered much to me
Meeeeee
It's never really mattered much to me
Meeeee, meeeeeee

(Guitar solo)

So this love affair is all over
And it's all right with me

You just can't make
Nothing go anywhere

I've made up my mind
It's time for me to leave

It's never really mattered much to me
Meeee
It's never really mattered much to me
Meeee, meeeeee

Little Boy Big
(Robert Cray)
(Guitar intro)

So it's all said and done
And you promised you wouldn't do it again

Now where are you going?
You've knocked on someone else's door
And you, jived and told some great big lies about it
Don't you think they know you?

Why, when something goes wrong
Do you walk away from love
Just like it was nothing?

You hide, and then you move on
You don't walk away from a good love
Nooo, little boy big

Now she begged and pleaded with 'ya
Tried and she tried and she tried everything that she could

Could you feel it?
You got one more go round this time, little fella
You better take hold to it if you can 
You know you've got to

Can you feel it?

You hide, when something goes wrong
Even if it's just a little thing
That throws you off

Why can't you be strong?
You don't walk away from a good love
Noooo

Why, when something goes wrong
You turn your back on love
Just like it was nothing

You hide, and then you move on
You can't walk away from a good love
Noo, little boy big

No, no
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Little boy big

With your hands in your pocket
You walk down the street singin'

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Oh, little boy
Little boy big

Enough For Me
(Robert Cray/Hayes)
You always what serious for granted, uh huh
You think that everything's cool and you think I'm satisfied, no no

You didn't think that it was necessary, uh huh
To call me a baby and tell me don't worry, no no

I wanna know what you intend to do
When you wake up one day with no one next to you

All on your own
No one else home
All on your own
Cause I know when it's enough
And babe, I've had enough

I'm trying to keep you, why I don't know
Cause you won't have a thing to do with this man, no no

I'm back in the corner watching you dance
Hey, feels so bad
Baby so long

Nothing else matters when you're alone always
Time to move along
Cause I know when it's enough
And baby, that's enough for me

(solo)

Ohh, you never seem to be in any hurry, oh no
I'm beggin' you baby, won't you please have mercy?

I don't believe that you hear what I'm sayin'
You think I'm acting a fool, you think that I'm playin', no

I wanna know what you intend to do
When you wake up one day with no one next to you

You're all on your own
No one else home
You're all on your own
Hey, what 'ya gonna do about it?

You're all on your own
Cause I know when it's enough, and baby that's enough for me

Jealous Love
(Womack/Ousley)
(Intro)

Jealous love
Jealous love of mine

Jealous love
Why can't you trust me sometimes?

To be so sweet
And yet so kind
You're killin' my love
With your jealous mind

Jealous love
I want to say it one more time

Ohh, you ought to trust me some time

I take you, baby
Everywhere I go
But your good intentions
They never, ever seem to show

And every time that a pretty girl walks by
I catch you watching me, baby
Out of the corner of your eye

To be so sweet
And yet so kind
You know you're killin' my love, baby
With your jealous mind

Jealous love
I want to say it one more time

Ohhh
You ought to trust me sometime

I'm home from work
Every day on time
You've got your hand in my pocket
For that number you thought you'd find

Jealous love
I want to say it one more time
Ohhh, ohhhh

You ought to trust me, baby

(Guitar solo)

To be so sweet
Ohh, and yet so kind

You know you're killing my love
With your jealous love

Jealous love
I want to say it one more time
Ohh, ohhh

Ohhhh, trust me

Jealous love
Jealous love, yeah

Will You Think Of Me?
(Robert Cray/Jim Pugh)
(Intro)

You think this world belongs
To you, my love
That's where you're wrong
I've always know that

Consider yourself lucky
You got the best of the deal
How could you grow so cold
And tell me that's how you feel?

When this love is done
When the new ones come

Will you think of me?

Will you think of me?

One last big hug
One last good cry
One last kiss
And then I'll say goodbye

You won't get rid of my love
With no damn headache pill
Oh, the hurt might leave you, baby 
But I never will


When this love is done
When the new ones come

Will you think of me?

Yeah, will you think of me?

As I walk out this door
Something tells me you're gonna need me

By that look in your eyes
Ohhh, you gonna need me
One day

You think this world belongs
To you, my love
I know there's somethin'
Making it hard to walk on

To you it may look like nothing
But to me it's a lot
Ohh, when I leave
It doesn't mean that the feeling's gonna stop

When this love is done
When the new ones come

Will you think of me?

Hey, will you think of me?

Heyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

I know you're gonna need my loving

Holdin' On
(Jim Pugh)
I'm holdin' on
I'm just holdin' on
Hey, hey
Ohhh, holdin' on

I was really wrong
Now she's really gone

I used to hold her
I'm never let her down
When she needed me
I was always around

But hey, that's all over now

I was really wrong
Now she's really gone

When temptation found me
Wicked water had its way     (?)
Day turned into night
Night turned into day

And then I read my fortune
In the bottom of a glass
It said, "She's leavin' you."
"You've had your last chance!"

I'm warning you, brother
Take my advice
Love your woman
Morning, noon, and night

Or you'll end up all alone
Like me in an empty room 
Just holdin' on

Just holdin' on

(Guitar solo)
