2000 Blues

                  A hundred thousand dollars 
                  wouldn't touch the price I paid 
                  of the hundred thousand moments 
                  of the times I wish I'd stayed. 
                  But even if I had all the time and money, 
                  it's still the same old news. 
                  Nothin' does you any good 
                  when you got 2000 blues. 

                  Ten thousand clouds 
                  on a rainy rainy day 
                  couldn't wash away 
                  all the dust and the haze. 
                  But I tried and I tried 
                  to search for all the clues, 
                  why I can't wash away 
                  these 2000 blues. 

                  If I had an airplane 
                  with a co-pilot too, 
                  I'd fly to a planet 
                  that was closest to you. 
                  I'd set the tracking system 
                  with your safety fuse, 
                  and set the countdown 
                  for 2000 blues.

A Fool For Your Stockings (II)

                  Is it you again outside, 
                  Just banging on the front door? 
                  You say you had enough, 
                  Now you're coming' back for more, 
                  But that's alright. 
                  I said that that's alright. 
                  I may not want to admit it, 
                  I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe. 

                  Now I don't mind when you send money 
                  and bring your girlfriends with you, 
                  But how could one be so thoughtless to try 
                  and handle less than two? 
                  But that's alright. 
                  I said that that's alright, baby. 
                  I may not want to admit it, 
                  I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe. 

                  Now I'm tellin' everybody 
                  It seems too good to be true: 
                  Sweet things can always get sweeter. 
                  I know mine did, how about you? 
                  Yes, it's alright. 
                  I said, yes it is, that's alright. 
                  I may not want to admit it, 
                  I'm just a fool for your stockings I believe.

                  Oh, now, baby, now want to make me some? 
                  Aw, baby, now want to make me some? 

                  No, baby, tell me why don't you? 
                  Oh, now, baby, tell me why don't you 
                  aw, make me some of your fine famous Bar-B-Q?

Hot, Blue and Righteous
(Billy Gibbons)
                  Hot, blue and righteous, 
                  an angel called me aside. 
                  Hot, blue and righteous, 
                  said, "Stick by me and I'll be your guide." 

                  I heard the words as I closed my eyes 
                  down on my, down on my bended knees. 
                  It fit like a glove and I realized 
                  somethin' good's happenin' to me. 

                  Hot, blue and righteous 
                  angel called me aside. 
                  Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Lowdown in the Street

                  Well there comes Lola, out of control-a: 
                  She just loves those rhythm and blues. 
                  And miss Ivy will be arriving; 
                  in leopard skin tights she's willing to cruise. 

                  It's a fiend scene and it happens 'bout once a week. 
                  So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street. 

                  There's Jimmy and Jojo, there's Kim and Keith, 
                  Way outside the eyes of cool. 
                  And sweet M.B., and there's little G.B. 
                  Everybody wants to be their fool. 

                  It's a fiend scene and it happens here ev'ry week. 
                  So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street. 

                  Some nights are lonely, some nights are lazy, 
                  but ain't nobody try and slip away. 
                  They'll make you loose. They'll make you crazy. 
                  Know what I mean, what you say, what you say. 

                  It's a fiend scene and it happens 'bout once a week. 
                  So roam on in, it ain't no sin to get low down in the street.

She Loves my Automobile

                  She don't love me, she love my automobile. 
                  She don't love me, she love my automobile. 
                  Well she would do anything just to slide behind the wheel. 
                  She said what's it gonna take for you to lay your top on down? 

                  She said what's it gonna take for you to lay your top on down? 

                  I said honey why don't you ask me when we get to the outskirts 
                  of town. 

                  Well now she don't care if I'm stoned or sloppy drunk. 
                  Well she don't care if I'm stoned or sloppy drunk, 
                  Long as she got the keys and there's a spare wheel in her 
                  trunk.

Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell
(Billy Gibbons)
                  Rain fell this mornin', make me feel so bad 
                  on account of my baby walked off with another man. 
                  Like takin' eyesight from the blind man and money from the 
                  poor 
                  that woman took my lovin' and walked on out that door. 
                  And it sure got cold after the rain fell, 
                  not from the sky, from my eye. 

                  Somebody, can you tell me just what make a man feel this way? 
                  Like river without its water, like night without a day. 
                  And it sure 'nuff got cold after the rain fell, 
                  not from the sky but from my eye. 

                  If you're home early in the mornin' you hear that rain to 
                  fall, 
                  with thunderbolts and lightning the wind begins to call. 
                  Your worry's superficial 'cause you slept on through the night 

                  but stormy weather keep you wond'rin' if ev'rything's all 
                  right. 
                  And it sure 'nuff got cold after the rain fell, 
                  not from the sky but from my eye, 
                  not from the sky, from my eye.
