Alone And Forsaken
We met in the springtime when blossoms unfold
The pastures were green and the meadows were gold
Our love was in flower as summer grew on
Our love like the leaves now have withered and gone
The roses have faded, there's frost at my door
The birds in the morning, don't sing anymore
The grass in the valley is starting to die
And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry
Take me down that line
Gonna tow that heavy load
I can't seem to make it
Make it on my own
Turn the lights down low now
Turn down our bed
I can't seem to get you
Out of my head
Stranded here in Bakersfield
Can't Take It With You
I'll tell you something, baby that's a fact
Never see a hearse, with a luggage rack
All your money, your hard earned pay
It don't mean shit, baby at the end of the end of the day
Can't take it with you, Can't take it with you, Can't take it with you,
Can't take it with you, Oh no you can't take it with you, Can't take it
With you, Can't take it with you, Can't take it with you when you go
Diamond in the rough
Well I've been up, yeah,
And I've been down.
Been kicked around, yeah,
This god-forsaken town.
So many faults, so little time.
I've gotta find my piece of mind.
Piece of mind. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I was looking for somethin',
Anything at all.
Far Side Of Nowhere
I wake up, drink my coffee
Put on my pants and comb my hair
Today's the day, I ain't got nothing
I ain't got nothing, I ain't got a care
The sun is out, it's shining bright
The birds are singing and the skies are blue
My motor runs a loverís heartbeat
It's just me and you
Gimme The Sweet And Lowdown
It was a moonlight mishap
You lost your party hat
Seems your lifestyle ain't so worthwhile after all
A heavy-hearted taxi ride
Then a walk on the wild side
Did your guardian angel let you down?
Gonna lay low and play it straight
It's time to rejuvenate
Gonna kick start your heart until you come around
Machine Gun Blues
Well, I'm a gangster 1934,
Junkies, winos, pimps & whores,
And all you men, women & kids,
Best get out the way,
I just left your town took all your loot,
Wore a pink carnation and a pinstripe suit,
Hopped up V8 Ford...
And some two-tone shoes...
Well, remember when we were young
And you said that I was done
Well, I walked the long boulevard
My head hanging down
And the word out on the street
I was back up on my feet
I was fighting the same old wars
Had to even up the score
And I'm still alive and I will survive
Writing On The Wall
There was a time when you were proud
You looked up to me with big eyes...
And I could do no wrong
There's something inside, that's clearly tearing
Both of us apart
Ooh ooh there's something inside
I wonder where you are tonight
And what you did with your day...
Can't find the words to say
