187a-AFTER MIDNIGHT – Re m

J. J. Cale

 

After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.
After midnight,

we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.


We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.


After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.

After midnight,

we're gonna shake your tambourine.


After midnight,

it's all gonna be peaches and cream.
We're gonna cause

talk and suspicion;
We're gonna give an exhibition.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.

 

After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.

After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.

 

Second Verse

 

After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.
After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.
After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out.
After midnight,

we're gonna let it all hang out

187b-CAJUN MOON – C1 Re m

J. J. Cale

 

 

Cajun moon,

where does your power lie
As you move

across the southern sky
You took my babe

way too soon
What have you done,

Cajun moon


Someday babe,

when you want your man
And you find him gone,

just like the wind
Don't trouble your mind

whatever you do
'Cause Cajun moon

took him from you

 

Cajun moon,

where does your power lie
As you move

across the southern sky
You took my babe

way too soon
What have you done,

Cajun moon

 


When daylight fades,

the night comes on
You can hear the silence

of this song
Don't trouble your mind

whatever you do
'Cause he got me

like he got you

 

Cajun moon,

where does your power lie
As you move

across the southern sky
You took my babe

way too soon
What have you done,

Cajun moon

188a-CARRY ON – Si m

J. J. Cale

 

If life's little downs

they keep coming around
Carry on,

carry on


With darkness all about,

you want to scream and shout
Carry on,

carry on


Don't cry baby,

look at where you've been
Everybody knows

you just need a friend


Please, please, please,

if you're down on your knees
Carry on,

carry on


Your head is full of doubt,

you can't figure it out
Carry on,

carry on

 

Between the time it takes

to make all those mistakes
Carry on,

carry on


It don't matter

what you say or do
It just seems to work out

if you want it to


Let out all the slack,

take it off your back
Carry on,

carry on

 

-Instrumental break-


Let me bend your ear,

never shed a tear
Carry on,

carry on


Carry on,

carry on

188b-HEY BABY – Do M

J. J. Cale

 

Hey baby,

it's your time now
Hey baby,

you made it somehow


Don't let nobody

come and bring you down


Hey baby,

you've got 'em on the run
You know,

you've got 'em on the run


I know you,

you have just begun


When you came into my life
My love, I thought I would die
There's never been nobody like you
You take away these blues

 

Hey baby,

you're looking real good
You know,

you're looking real good


You make the day a song

like I knew you would

 

break


When you came into my life Lord,
I thought I would die
I never met nobody like you
For telling my troubles to

520a-YOU GOT ME ON SO BAD – Re M7

J. J. Cale

 

Oh Baby,

you got me on so bad

 I think that you're the wickedless woman

that I ever had

 

 Sometimes you make me

feel so complete

 You take away my troubles,

put my mind at ease

 

 Oooh baby,

you're up to your old tricks

 I've got something wrong right here

and I know that you can fix

 

Sometimes you treat me

like I was your natural man

 I come down here

to you, babe,

every chance I can

 

BREAK

 

 Oh, Baby,

you feel so good to me

 I do believe that you take away my misery

 

 Sometimes I wonder

 if you understand

 The way you handle yourself, woman,

has got me on again

520b-HOLD ON – La m

J. J. Cale

 

First time I seen you,

 I knew

 You had come undone for someone

mistreated you

 

 The ringing in your ears,

 the salt in your tears

 Yes, I know I would feel

sick at a dirty deal,

yes I do

 

Some bright morning,

the sun will shine again

 Some bright morning, 

start all over again

 

Hold on,

you've got to hold on

 If nothing is real,

I know how it feels,

yes I do

 

 Hold on,

when everything is gone

 I know how it feels

to get a dirty deal,

 I do

520c-I'M A GYPSY MAN – Re m

J. J. Cale

 

I'm a gypsy man on a one-night stand

 Am I fit to be loved by you

 

 I'm with a gypsy van,  just travelling the land

 They'll be leaving in the morning,

I'll be leaving too

 

 Things like love don't tie me down

 I just spread my love around

 Like small change on girls

I don't know

 I'm a gypsy man

on a one-night stand

 Gonna have some fun before

I have to go

 

 Don't you cry and don't you weep

 Close your eyes and go to sleep

 I've had you in my arms too long

 

What fortunes did I bring,

golden earrings

 When you wake up in the morning I'll be gone

 Things like love don't tie me down

 I just spread my love around

 Like small change on girls

I don't know

 I'm a gypsy man

on a one-night stand…

Well it's been money for muscle

another whirligig

Money for muscle

another girl I dig

Another hustle just

to make it big

And rock away rock away

 

And girl it looks so pretty to me

just like it always did

Like the Spanish city to me

when we were kids

Oh girl it looks so pretty to me

just like it always did

Like the Spanish city to me

when we were kids

 

She took off a silver locket

she said remember me by this

She put her hand in my pocket

I got a keepsake and a kiss

 

Guitar break

 

And in the roar of dust and diesel

I stood and watched her walk away

I could have caught up with her easy enough but something must have made me stay

And the big wheel keep on turning

neon burning up above

And I'm just high on the world

Come on and take a low ride

with me girl

On the tunnel of love

 

And now I'm searching through these carousels

and the carnival arcades

Searching everywhere

from steeplechase to palisades

In any shooting gallery

where promises are made

To rock away rock away

Rock away, rock away

from Cullercoats and Whitley bay

out to rock away

053a-FANCY DANCER – Si M7

J.J. Cale

 

Once a day, every day,

sometimes all night long

She moves her body next to mine,

to the rhythm of this song

 

They call her May, some call her June,

 she just needs a dancer

No matter what they or you call her now,

I call her fancy dancer

 

Fancy dancer,

the way she moves I say.

If you ask she will consent

to fancy dance all day

 

No man has ever lasted out,

the night along with her

The pace too quick, the heat's too hot,

she dances in a blur

 

When the sun begins to fade

you might have a chance,

to meet the lady of the night

she is the fancy dancer.

 

Fancy dancer,

the way she moves I say.

If you ask she will consent

to fancy dance all day.

 

[Guitar Solo]

 

She draws attention from anyone

who happens on her scene.

It's mostly men who want to try

out the dancing queen.

 

Fancy dancer,

the way she moves I say.

If you ask she will consent

to fancy dance all day.

 

[Guitar Solo]

053b-FRIDAY – Re m

J.J. Cale

 

Monday morning comes too early

Work my back to the bone

All day monday I keep thinking,

"Weekend's coming, gonna go home"

 

Tuesday I hate, oh Tuesday,

ain't no girls on the streets

Tuesday it ain't good for nothing

drinking beer, watching TV

 

Friday, Friday evening

Come on Friday, it's been too long

Friday, Friday evening

Come on Friday, I wanna go home

 

Friday, Friday evening

Come on Friday, it's been too long

Friday, Friday evening

Come on Friday, I wanna go home

 

Come on Friday, I wanna go home

 

Wednesday's hump day, hump day's Wednesday

Over the hump, the week's half-gone

 

If I had my pay on Wednesday

I'd hang out, the hump day's gone

 

Thursday, you know I feel better

I can see the end in sight

Think I'll write myself a letter

Help myself through the night

 

Friday, Friday evening

Come on Friday, it's been too long

Friday, Friday evening

054a-I'D LIKE TO LOVE YOU BABY – Mi M

J. J. Cale

 

I'd like to love you baby and

keep my other baby too

Put my arms around you,

that's all I want to do

 

If the sun don't shine tomorrow,

I know I've got you

I'd like to love you baby and

keep my other baby too

 

Sometimes my baby's sleeping,

sometimes she's not around

Sometimes I look to find her,

I know she'll put me down

 

Oh, won't you let me hold you,

let me lean on you

I'd like to love you baby and

keep my other baby too

 

If the sun don't shine tomorrow,

I know I've got you

I'd like to love you baby and

keep my other baby too

 

054b-PRECIOUS MEMORIES – Si M7

J.J. Cale

 

Hell, I travel

on life's pathways

Know not what

the years may hold

 

Hell, I've wandered,

oh, grows fonder

Precious memories

flood my soul

 

Precious memories,

how they linger

How they ever

flood my soul

 

In the stillness

of the midnight

Precious, sacred

scenes unfold

054c-I'LL MAKE LOVE TO YOU ANYTIME- La m

J.J. Cale

 

I can't read

and I can't write

 

And I don't know

my left from right

 

I can't tell

if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know

if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

 

I can't swim

and I can't fly

 

I ain't no fish,

I ain't no bird in the sky

 

I can't tell

if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know

if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

 

drums&guitar break

 

I can't count

from one to ten

 

And I don't know

the shape I'm in

 

I can't tell

if the sun's gonna shine

And I don't know

if you'll ever be mine

But I'll make love to you any old time

055a-RIVER RUNS DEEP – Re M

J.J. Cale

 

Well, the river runs deep

and the water is cold as ice

The river runs deep

and the water is cold as ice

 

I go down there

every chance I get

It's where my baby

she met her date

 

And the river runs deep

and the water's cold as ice

 

Ain't no woman

gonna make a fool

out of me

 

Ain't no woman

gonna make a fool

out of me

 

Running 'round,

that's what they said

She's at the bottom

of the river dead

 

And the river runs deep

and the water's cold as ice

 

No cheating woman

gonna get a good man down

No cheating woman

gonna get a good man down

 

Running 'round

like a silly fool

You're gonna end up

at the bottom of the pool

 

And the river runs deep

and the water's cold as ice

055b-RUNAROUND – Sol m

J. J. Cale

 

Yeah, you come home in the morning,

your hair's all a mess

You've been out all night,

you've got wrinkles in your dress

 

You give me the runaround

All day long you give me the runaround

When you say something here,

you mean something there

You give me the runaround

 

Same thing yesterday,

same thing the day before

Woman, it does get

pretty doggone old

 

You give me the runaround

All day long you give me the runaround

You give me the runaround, woman,

I'm getting tired of that

 

n,

running 'round like that

 

Electric piano break

 

Hey, you told me last Sunday

you were gonna straighten it out

You know, woman, it's time

I started having my doubts

 

Such a runaround

You've been stepping on me, woman

056a-DON'T CRY SISTER – C1 Si m

J.J. Cale

 

Don't cry sister cry,

it'll be alright, in the morning

Don't cry sister cry,

everything'll be just fine

 

Don't cry sister cry,

it'll be alright, I tell you no lie

Don't cry sister cry,

don't do it, don't do it

 

When Old Man Trouble

knocks on your door

Don't give him no key,

he just wants more

 

He'll turn your life

to misery

Kick you down,

just like me

 

Don't cry sister cry,

 it'll be alright, in the morning

Don't cry sister cry,

everything'll be just fine

 

guitar break

 

If you woke downhearted

and you feel so bad

Somebody wants something

of nothing you had

 

Love don't come

too easy, you see

A little bit of you

and a little bit of me

 

Don't cry sister cry,

don't do it, don't do it

Don't cry sister cry,

everything'll be just fine

 

Everything'll be just fine

Everything'll be just fine

 

Don't cry sister cry,

don't do it, don't do it

Don't cry sister cry,

don't do it, don't do it

056b-SUPER BLUE – Sol M7

J.J. Cale

 

Days are longer

By yourself

You sold your soul

to someone else

 

Now you're paying,

can't you see

You want to pass it back

to me

 

Told you once,

told you twice

When you're gone don't expect to

come back

 

Things don't work out

like I planned

'Cause you've got yourself

another man

 

break

 

Danger signal,

danger ahead

I know you'd be better if you thought,

if you thought I was dead

 

I won't tell you,

I won't tell you no lie

I'll come back and haunt you

as another guy

 

Things don't work out

like I planned them

'Cause you've got yourself

another man

010b-IF YOU´RE  EVER IN OKLAHOMA-La M

J. J. Cale

 

            If you're ever

            in Oklahoma

You better move

around at night

 

'Cause they don't like

no transportation

Slipping by

in-and-out of sight

 

And they don't care

about Dallas, Texas

And they don't care

about Wichita

 

If you're ever in Oklahoma

You better move around the law

 

They got fines

and they got plenty

They'll hold you up

for days on end

 

Threaten your life

and take your money

Make you think

you're there to stay
