The Last Time
Love, love love love

Oh my sweet, young child
Livin' heartache alone
Pictures cry on the wall

Whispered sins, never 'prise me to fall
Now you're twistin' it all

Wasted days are bringin' me down
Oh girl I'm losin' you

Shattered dreams
Spinnin' me 'round
Oh girl, what can I do

The last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
Girl, it's the last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
No, no, no, yeah

I remember that night
And that very blind kiss
You knew I'd never love on a lie

But time after time
I'd be down on my knees
Beggin' like never before

Wasted days are bringin' me down
Oh girl, I'm losin' you
Shattered dreams
Spinnin' me 'round
Oh girl, what can I do

The last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
Girl, it's the last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
No, no, no, yeah

solo

Girl, it's the last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
Yes, it's the last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
You know, it's the last time
Baby, said I'm fallin' in love
The last time
I said I'm fallin' in love
No, no, no

Girl, it's the last time, yeah
I said I'm falling for your love
Last time for love
 
 
Show Me the Way
So many times, I walked away from your love
So little time to show you the way I feel

All I know
Is that I need to hold on to your love
Lead me to your heart, oh

Show me the way now, baby
Show me the way now, darlin'
Open up your lovin' heart

Show me the way now baby
I need to feel you in my arms
Show me the way into your heart

Just remember me baby, when I've gone away
Every time I feel the wind blow, I'll remember your way, yeah
So many times you held me close in times of need
And baby, it's time you bring me closer to your lovin' arms now, yeah

Show me the way now, baby
I need to feel you in my arms
Show me the way into your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Show me the way now, baby
Open up your lovin' arms
Show me the way into your heart
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

solo

Show me the way now, baby
Show me the way now, darlin'
Open up your lovin' heart, lovin' heart

Show me the way now, baby
I need to feel you in my arms now
Show me the way into your heart

Lead me, baby, to your lovin' arms
I'll keep you dry in the pourin' rain, now, baby

And I'm lonely, baby
Every little day I'm closer to your lovin' arms, yeah, yeah

Show me the way, show me the way to your heart now, baby
Yeah, yeah
Show me a way into your lovin' arms and tell me that you're mine
 
 
Shine On
Yeah, alright

Born by a river
If you look into my eyes the river's end

People sometimes think I'm crazy
But I know this world's gone mad

Tell me why
I can't explain
Way down inside I'm filled with pain

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me

Oh my Lord, I've been a sinner
In my time I've seen my ways
And if I beg down on my knees
Would you hear these words I say

'Cause in the dark I need your vision
Don't let this poor soul fade away

(Shine on)
Only you can set me free

(Shine on)
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me, yeah

solo

Foolish anger is the flame
That burns inside, it calls your name
'Cause by a river, my soul is bleeding
Hold me now

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Only you

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
I close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me
 
 
Whiskey Dust
Give it to me, one time

It's been a long time since I seen you girl
Takin' time on me
All the boys 'round town
They tell me you just got back in the scene

I'm fightin' it hard for you, baby
Still lovin' you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're turnin' me on

I'm soakin' my head in this rusty old bar
Hearin' a jukebox playin' old guitar

Your love is whiskey
Whiskey through my bones
Your love is whiskey dust
Burnin' through my bones

Seen you walking down
The other hot night, sweet child
Memory lane has burned a shotgun hole in my soul

I'm fightin' hard for you baby
Still lovin' you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're turnin' me on

I'm soakin' my head in this rusty old bar
Hearin' a jukebox playin' old guitar

Your love is whiskey
Whiskey through my bones
Your love is whiskey dust
Burnin' through my bones
Yeah, yeah, yeah

solo

Since I've been away
The boys they tell me you're a dancin' girl
Swingin' your hips
Winkin' your eyes
You're a circus on the town

I'm fightin' it hard for you baby
Still lovin' you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're turnin' me on, and on, and on, on, on, on

I'm soakin' my head in this rusty old bar
Hearin' a jukebox playin' old guitar

Your love is whiskey (whiskey)
Whiskey through my bones, yeah
Whiskey dust burnin' through my bones
Whiskey woman burnin' through my soul, soul, soul
Whiskey dust burnin' through my bones, yeah
 
 
Joe's Blues
(Instrumental)
 
 
Soul Stealer
Oh

If you want my love
Just name a time and any place

If you want my love
Just name a time and any place, yeah, yeah

You need a backdoor, said I'd never leave
Oh, without a trace

If you want my heart
You can steal it if you want to
Yes, you can

If you want my heart
You can steal it if you want to, yeah, yeah
'Cause in your lovin' arms, sweet baby
Where you set me free, yeah, yeah, yeah

solo

Take a chance on your love, sweet Jesus
Even though you're gonna break my heart with your evil ways

'Cause I love you, love you, love you, love you
Any time and any place now, baby

You ain't nothin' but a soul stealer
Think I'll take my chances

'Cause in your lovin' arms. sweet baby
Where you set me free-yeah

Any time, any place now baby

Oh, it's gonna make you blind

Yeah
 
 
3 Day Funk
Three day funk
Remember the times, sunshine in our eyes
We were caught up in the summer shade
Those were the days, like a gentle sleeping baby
We would watch the ocean wash the sun away

Livin' free was so easy, honey, honey
Those sunny days can never fade away
'Round and 'round and 'round time passes by so fast
Hey, hey, hey

The memory's all I know
And they're long gone for me
Her memory's holding on
But they're long gone for me

Sippin' my wine under the moonshine blanket
With my baby rollin' under the stars
Terrible lies we would tell one another, oh yeah
Hey, hey, hey

Livin' free was so easy, honey, honey
Those sunny days can never fade away
'Round and 'round and 'round time passes by so fast
Hey, hey, hey

The memory's all I know

And they're long gone for me
Her memory's holding on
And they're long gone for me, yeah

solo

The memory's all I know
And they're long gone for me
Her memory's holding on
But they're long gone for me

The memory's all I know
And they're long gone for me
Her memory's holding on
But they're long gone for me
Yeah, yeah (all they're long gone)

Hoo, Hoo, Hoo, Hoo

Livin' free, livin' free, livin free my baby, now alright
I need a woman
Woman, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman
Aaaahh, haaaa
 
 
Silver Horses
Alright
Running on like the rising sun
Like a wild horse thundering on
Fly, fly, fly through the wind and storm
Now I'm running free

Heart and soul
That's my old bag
I leave behind a trial of sorrow and pain
Cry, cry, Lord, he calls my name
Not even you could take the blame

Ride on, silver horses
Drive, drive past the wind

A candle burns for my tortured soul
In a chapel where she whispers my name

Pray, pray, pray just to pay my toll
For sins of yesterday

Ride on silver horses
Drive, drive past the wind
Ride on silver horses
Drive on past my sins

solo

Ride on silver horses
Drive, drive past the wind
Ride on silver horses
Drive on past my sins
 
 
Love Don't Mean a Thing
Oh, fuck me

When evening calls
And the black night's down on me

You give your love
For which I take

Blinded by the time I know
This lonely old boy's spinnin' 'round
Time don't wait for me no more
Love don't mean a thing without you girl, yeah

This love I know, yeah
She's tearin' me down inside
This babe I know, I know, I know
And don't make no mistake

Blinded by the time I know
This lonely old boy's spinnin' 'round
Time don't wait for me no more
Love don't mean a thing without you girl, yeah

My touch is in your eyes
Your fire burns inside me
Your healing hands can turn me around
Gonna turn I know

solo

My touch is in your eyes
Your fire burns inside me
Your healing hands can turn me around
Gonna turn I know

Love don't mean a thing without you girl
Love don't mean a thing without ya by my side
Love don't mean a thing without you girl, yeah

Love don't mean a thing without you, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, hey, ooh
Alright!
 
 
Voodoo Highway
Yeah
Ha ha ha ha
Oh, it wasn't that bad was it
Y'all goin' to his show
Yeah

I'm a searching soul, um hmm
I'm a lonely man
Walkin' down
To the crossroads

Wake up on a Sunday mornin'
Heard a voice in my head
He's tellin' me lies
Tryin' to take me by surprise
Tryin' to take me down before I'm dead

Oh, down that Voodoo Highway
Oh, down that wicked road
Oh, down that Voodoo Highway

Poor old son, gonna find out the hard way
Oh, yes he is now

Mojo man ring my doorbell
Tell me somethin' what you need
I ain't gonna sign on no dotted line, no sir
Might as well make me bleed

Ah, I'll take my chance on Voodoo Highway
Oh, goin' down, down, down
Oh listen, I never joke a fool
Don't you know, I was born to fly down Voodoo Highway

Ah, don't you mess with me boy
I was born to fly
Down on Voodoo Highway, highway, highway
Aw, don't try to steal my soul
 
 
Fire & Rain
Oh oh oh oh, oh

Just yesterday morning
They never know you were gone
Susan, the plans they made put an end to you

I woke up this morning, and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

Well, I've seen fire, and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, yeah
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't look down upon me Jesus
You've got to help me make a stand
I just can't make it through another day
My body's aching, and my time, my time is at end
I just can't make it any other way, yeah

Well, I've seen fire, and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend (yeah)
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Sweet momma you're gone

solo

I'm openin' my mind to easier times
My back turned to the sun
Lord knows, when the cold winds blow
It'll turn your head around

But there's only time on the telephone lines
To talk about the good things to come
Sweet dreams and war machines in pieces on the ground, yeah

Well, I've seen fire, and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, yeah
But I always thought that I'd see you again

And your gone, gone, gone, my baby
Sweet times don't wait for me no more
I can't go on living without you by my side
 
 
Heaven's Train
Here's a little story 'bout a very old muffin
She's a sugar when she's on her back
Tellin' old tales of how it used to be
And she said she's covered all the tracks

Laughin' all night
Drinkin' all night
Little Mary holds a naked heart

Showin' no cards
Hidin' no scars
Just you ask just what's inside of her

Such a sad, sad Mary
Sing a song for Mary
Love will find her way back home

Two o'clock dawns
When Mary starts out broke
She's a-rockin' right around the clock
From the New York apple
To the Hollywood city
Mary always finds a twisted plot

Laughin' all night
Drinkin' all night
She's a tattooed jungle star

Living her games
Bridges in flames
And she never thought she'd go too far

Such a sad, sad Mary

Sing a song for Mary
Love will find her way back home

solo

Two o'clock dawns and Mary's gotta run
They say she's ridin' on a Heaven's train

All aboard
Mary, now they say she's blown the whistle
And she's never comin' back again

Laughin' all night
Drinkin' all night
She's a tattooed jungle star

Living her games
Bridges in flames
And she never thought she'd go too far

Just remember Mary
Sing a song for Mary
Love will find her way back home

Just remember Mary
Sing a song for Mary
Love will find her way back home

Sing a song for Mary
Woo woo, hey
 
 
In a Dream
When I'm down and feeling low
And confusion has touched my soul
How I need some place where I can hide away

Let me fall within your arms
Melt away this cold I feel
All I need is to hold you tonight

Hold me close when I'm cold
Let me hear your beating heart
Close my eyes far away in a dream

In the morning I wake
And I'm blessed by God's grace
Just to open my eyes, see your face

Hold you tonight, sweet child
Never let me go
Tell me everything, oh, will be alright

In the morning I awake
And I'm blessed by God's grace
Just to open my eyes, see your face
Just to open my eyes to see your face
