LEE ROCKER - NightTrainToMemphis

ROCKABILLY BOOGIE
Well, it’s a rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie tonight

Well, I know a little place on the edge of town
Where you can really dig ‘em up and set ‘em down
It’s a little place called The Hide-Away
You do the rockabilly ‘till the break of day

Well it’s a rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie tonight

Well, they kick off their shoes, gettin’ ready to bop
They’re gonna rockabilly wearin’ their socks
You wiggle your hip, feel the thrill
Come on little baby do the rockabilly-bill

It’s a rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie tonight

Well, there’s little ol’ Suzie, turnin’ seventeen
Everybody knows her as a rockabilly queen
And there’s old’ Slim, as quiet as a mouse
He grabs ol’ Suzie, they’re gonna tear up the house

It’s a rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie tonight

It’s a rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie
A rock-rock rockabilly boogie tonight

SLAP THE BASS
I’m gonna slap, slap, slap the bass
Step up on and rock this place
I’m gonna slap, slap, slap the bass
Step up on and rock this place
I’m gonna slap, slap, slap this bass tonight

Everybody get off on your feet
Swing to the rhythm and feel the beat
Everybody move out on the floor
Having a ball and rock some more
Slap, slap, slap that bass tonight

Like the train that come on down the track
Got the sound of a ’57 Cadillac
Thunder slams and lightning strikes
Gonna slap that bass and gonna rock tonight

I’m gonna slap, slap, slap the bass
Step up on and rock this place
I’m gonna slap, slap, slap the bass
Step up on and rock this place
I’m gonna slap, slap, slap this bass all night

 

TWENTY FLIGHT ROCK
Well, I got a girl with a record machine
When it comes to rockin’ she’s the queen
We love to dance on a Saturday night
All alone where I can hold her tight
But she lives on the twentieth floor uptown
The elevator’s broken down

So I walked one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more
Up on the twelfth I started to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

When she calls me up on the telephone
Say, come on over honey, I’m all alone
I said, “baby you’re mighty sweet
But I’m in bed with the achin’ feet”
This went on for a couple of days
I couldn’t stay away

So I walked one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more
Up on the twelfth I started to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m startin’ to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

Well, they sent to Chicago for repairs
Till it’s a-fixed I’m usin’ the stairs
Hope they hurry up before it’s too late
I want my baby too much to wait
All this climbin’ is a-gettin’ me down
Before they’ll find my corpse draped over a rail

But I climbed one, two flight, three flight four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more
Up on the twelfth I started to drag
Fifteenth floor I’m startin’ to sag
Get to the top,well, I’m too tired to rock

 

WILD CHILD
Well, I’m just outta school
I’m real real cool
I gotta jump, I gotta jive

TEAR IN MY BEER
There’s a tear in my beer
And I’m cryin’ for you, dear
You are on my lonesome mind
Into these last nine beers
I have shed a million tears
You are on my lonesome mind

I’m gonna keep on sittin’ heree till I’m petrified
Then, my darling, my heart won’t hurt inside

There’s a tear in my beer
And I’m cryin’ for you, dear
You are on my lonesome mind

I’m gonna keep on sittin’ here till I can’t move a toe
Then, my darling, well, my heart won’t hurt me so

There’s a tear in my beer
And I’m cryin’ for you, dear
You are on my lonesome mind

 

LONESOME TEARS
Lonesome tears sad and blue
I shed lonesome tears for you
You know I know why
I cried when you said goodbye

When you left me all alone
Lonesome tears fell all night long
Well, you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

You left me here all alone
Hear me callin’, won’t you back home
Love me like you did before
Now I need to tell you more

Lonesome tears sad and blue
I shed lonesome tears for you
Well, you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

Well, you left me here all alone
Hear me callin’, won’t you back home
Love me like you did before
Now I need to tell you more

Lonesome tears sad and blue

Well, you know I know I cried
When you said
Well, you know I know I cried
When you said
Well, you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

 

BUILT FOR SPEED
Here I come in my fifty seven
She’s a real low rider made in heaven
With a custom engine painted black with flames
Ain’t nobody gonna call that hot rod tame
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

V-8 engine with the fuel injection
Two eight three, that’s my ounce of perfection
Get that rod out when it’s very late
Haven’t got a round to getting license plates
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

Well, I’m cruising low and I’m cruising mean
Well, I’m cruising slow in my dream machine
My hot rod mama
And you’re really built for speed

You’re built for speed

When I reach that final destination
I will drive your car and leave you compensation
With a little reeling and a lot of rockin’
You’re my hot rod mama in your fishnet stockings
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

Well, I’m cruising low and I’m cruising mean
Well, I’m cruising slow in my dream machine
You’re my hot rod mama
And you’re really built for speed

Built for speed

There I come in my fifty seven
She’s a real low rider made in heaven
With a custom engine painted black with flames
Ain’t nobody gonna call that hot rod tame
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

Well, I’m cruising low and I’m cruising mean
Well, I’m cruising slow in my dream machine
You’re my hot rod mama
And you’re really built for speed

You’re built for speed
You’re built for speed
You’re built for speed
You’re built for speed

 

SO SAD
We used to have good times together
But now I feel them slip away
It makes me cry to see love die
So sad to watch good love go bad

Remember how you used to feel, dear
You said nothing could change your mind
It breaks my heart to see us part
So sad to watch good love go bad

Is it any wonder why I feel so blue
When I know for certain that I’m losing you

Remember how you used to feel, dear
You said nothing could change your mind
It breaks my heart to see us part
So sad to watch good love go bad
So sad to watch good love go bad

 

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

LEE ROCKER - TheCoverSessionsfront

COME TOGETHER
Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say “I know you, you know me”
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down to his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say “One and one and one is three”
Got to be good-looking ‘cause he’s so hard to see
Come together right now
Come together right now
Come together right now over me

 

DRIVING MY LIFE AWAY
Well, the midnight headlight
Find you on a rainy night
Steep grade up ahead
Slow me down makin’ no time
I gotta keep rollin’
Those windshield wipers
Slappin’ out a tempo
Keepin’ perfect rhythm
With the song on the radio
Gotta keep rollin’

Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way, for me
Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a sunny day

Well the truck stop cutie
Comin’ on to me
Tried to talk me into a ride
Said I wouldn’t be sorry
But she was just a baby
Well, waitress pour me another cup of coffee
Pop me down, jack me up
Shoot me out headin’ down the highway
Lookin’ for the morning

Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way, for me
Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way

Well, the midnight headlight
Find you on a rainy night
Steep grade up ahead
Slow me down makin’ no time
I gotta keep rollin’
Those windshield wipers
Slappin’ out a tempo
Keepin’ perfect rhythm
With the song on the radio
Gotta keep rollin’

Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way, for me
Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way
Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way, for me
Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way

Oooh, driving my life away
Lookin’ for a better way, for me

 

HONKEY CAT
When I look back, boy I must have been green
Bopping in the country, fishing in a stream
Looking for an answer trying to find a sign
Til I saw your city lights honey I was blind

They said “get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods”
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Ooh, the change is gonna do me good

You better get back honky cat
Living in the city ain’t where it’s at
It’s like trying to find gold in a silver mine
It’s like trying to drink whisky from a bottle of wine

Well, I read some books and I read some magazines
About those high class ladies down in New Orleans
And all the folks back home said I was a fool
They said “oh, believe in the Lord is the golden rule”

They said “get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods”
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Ooh, the change is gonna do me good

They said “get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods”
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Ooh, the change is gonna do me good

They said “stay at home boy, you gotta tend the farm
Living in the city boy, is going to break your heart”
But how can you stay, when your heart says no
How can you stop when your feet say go

“You better get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods”
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Ooh, the change is gonna do me good

You better get back honky cat
Living in the city ain’t where it’s at
It’s like trying to find gold in a silver mine
It’s like trying to drink whisky from a bottle of wine

You better get back, get back honky cat
Get back, get back honky cat
You better get back, honky cat
Get back, get back, get back
You better get back, honky cat
Get back, get back honky cat

 

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS
Riding on the City of New Orleans
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee
Rolls along past houses, farms and fields
Passin’ trains that have no names
Freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Good morning America, how are you
Well, don’t you know me I’m your native son
I’m the train they call The City of New Orleans
And I’ll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Sittin’ playing poker in the club car
Penny a point ain’t no one keepin’ score
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Feel the wheels rumblin’ ‘neath the floor
And the sons of pullman porters
And the sons of engineers
Ride their father’s magic carpets made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin’ to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

Good morning America, how are you
Well, don’t you know me I’m your native son
I’m the train they call The City of New Orleans
And I’ll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Nighttime on The City of New Orleans
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
Half way home, we’ll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness
Rolling down to the sea
And all the towns and people seem
To fade into a bad dream
And the steel rails still ain’t heard the news
The conductor sings his song again
The passengers will please refrain
This train’s got the disappearing railway blues

Good morning America, how are you
Well, don’t you know me I’m your native son
I’m the train they call The City of New Orleans
And I’ll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Good night, America, how are you
Don’t you know me I’m your native son
I’m the train they call The City of New Orleans
I’ll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

 

RAMBLIN’ MAN
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it’s time for leaving, I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man

My daddy was a gambler down in Georgia
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun
I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Moving down highway forty-one

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it’s time for leaving, I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man

On my way to New Orleans this morning
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee
They’re always having a good time down on the Bayou, Lord
Them delta women think the world of me

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it’s time for leaving, I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it’s time for leaving, I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man

 

COME DANCING
They put a parking lot on a piece of land
When the supermarket used to stand
Before that they put up a bowling alley
On the site that used to be the local Palais
That’s where the big bands used to come and play
My sister went there on a Saturday

Come dancing
All her boyfriends used to come and call
Why not come dancing
It’s only natural

Another Saturday, another date
She would be ready but she’s always make them wait
In the hallway, in anticipation
He didn’t know the night would end up in frustration
He’d end up blowing all his wages for the week
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek

Come dancing
That’s how they did it when I was just a kid
And when they said come dancing
My sister always did

My sister should have come in a midnight
And my mom would always sit up and wait
It always ended up in a big row
When my sister used to get home late

The day they knocked down the Palais
My sister stood and cried
The day they knocked down the Palais
Part of my childhood died

Now I’m grown up and playing in a band
And there’s a car park where the Palais used to stand
My sister’s married and she lives on an estate
Her daughters go out, now it’s her turn to wait
She knows they get away with things she never could
But if I asked her I wonder if she would

Come dancing
Come on sister, have yourself a ball
Don’t be afraid to come dancing
It’s only natural

Come dancing
Just like the Palais on a Saturday
All her friends will come dancing
Where the big bands used to play

 

DANCING IN THE DARK
I get up in the evening
And I ain’t got nothing to say
I come home in the moring
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ain’t nothing but tired
I’m just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Message just keep getting clearer
Radio’s on and I’m moving round the place
I check my look in the mirror
Wanna change my clothes my hair my face
Man, I ain’t getting nowhere
I’m just livin in a dump like this
There’s something happening somewhere
Baby, I just know that there is

You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older
There’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me
I’ll shake this world off my shoulders
Come on, baby the laughs on me
Stay on the streets of this town
And they’ll be carving you up, alright
They say you got to stay hungry
Hey baby, I’m just about starving tonight
I’m dying for some action
I’m sick of sitting ‘round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
Come on, baby give me just one look

You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

You can’t start a fire
Worryin’ about your little world falling apart
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

 

TONIGHT SHE COMES
I know tonight she comes
She’s takin’ a swipe at fun
She gives me a reason
For sighting my sights
Well, I know tonight she comes

She jangles me up
She does it with ease
And sometimes she passes through me
Just like a breeze
She gives me a reason
For feelin’ all right

Oh, well
I know tonight, I know tonight
Well, I know tonight she comes

And I know she’s gonna do it to me
One more time
I know she’s gonna stay implanted in my mind
Why does she keep me hanging on the line

And I know she’s gonna do it to me
One more time
I know she’s gonna stay implanted in my mind
Why does she keep me hanging on the line

I know the way she feels
And all of the hearts that she steals
She tells me it’s easy
When you do it right

Oh, well
I know tonight, I know tonight
Well, I know tonight she comes

She tells me it’s easy
When you do it right
I know tonight, I know tonight
I know tonight she comes
I know tonight, I know tonight
I know tonight she comes

Lee Rocker – Black Cat Bone lyrics

LEE ROCKER - BlackCatBonefront

GONE
When I finally made it back
There were locks on all the windows and the doors
Everything had changed
Like I’d never seen this place before
Well your lookin’ at me different
Now I know that the end is finally here
Baby, there ain’t nothing left
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone

They’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone

I took myself to Reno
where I looked around and found a place to play
In a broken down casino
Long ago had seen a better day
Well, I played my luck and I sang my song
I couldn’t stay there very long
Maybe there ain’t nothing left
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone

They’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone

They’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone

So I hitched a ride to Memphis
And I got off by the Mississippi bridge
And I made my way to Beal Street
Where I heard the ghosts had lived
Well, I raced a train and that’s alright
Kentucky moon I’ll hold you tight
Bab,y there ain’t nothing left
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone

They’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
I won’t shed a tear because they’re gone
Nothing lasts forever
They’re gone

 

CRAZY WHEN SHE DRINKS
I got a girl as sweet as can be, she wouldn’t hurt a fly
When she hits that bottle, I see the devil in her eyes
Starts lookin’ for trouble, it happens in a blink
Oh, so fine I love that girl of mine
But she’s crazy when she drinks

Pour her a shot of Bourbon, pour her a shot of gin
It don’t really matter, when her head starts to spin
Mouth will fill with venom, as the glasses start to clear
Oh, so fine I love that girl of mine
But she’s crazy when she drinks

Down a fifth of whiskey, Jack Daniels or Jim Beam
It don’t make her happy, it just makes her mean
Oh, how I love my baby, but in a drunken rage
You need a pair of handcuffs to lock her in her cage
Once inebriated well there’s no time to think
Oh, so fine I love that girl of mine
But she’s crazy when she drinks

Down a fifth of whiskey, Jack Daniels or Jim Beam
It don’t make her happy, it just makes her mean
Wow my babes a sweet thing, but three sheets to the wind
She’s a psychopathic freak show, a sexpot bound for sin
We might make it home to bed, but we won’t sleep a wink
Oh, so fine I love that girl of mine
But she’s crazy when she drinks

 

ONE MORE NIGHT
One more night, the stars all in sight
But tonight I’m as lonesome as can be
Oh, the moon is shinin’ bright
Lighting everything in sight
But tonight no light will shine on me

Oh, it’s painful and it’s sad
I lost the only pal I had
I just couldn’t be what she wanted me to be
I will turn my head up high
To the dark and rolling sky
But tonight no light will shine on me

I was so mistaken when I thought that she’d be true
I had no idea what a woman in love could do

One more night, I’ll wait for the light
While the wind is blowing high above the tree
Well, I miss my darling so
I didn’t mean to let her go
But tonight no light will shine on me

I was so mistaken when I thought that she’d be true
I had no idea what a woman in love could do

One more night, the stars all in sight
But tonight I’m as lonesome as can be
Oh, the moon is shinin’ bright
Lighting everything in sight
But tonight no light will shine on me
But tonight no light will shine on me

 

BLACK CAT BONE
New moon night, ‘bout half past three
A beam of light shining down on me
Sleeping under the willow tree
There’s a new moon night shining down on me

Got a black cat bone, ain’t no monkey man
I’m a rollin’ stone, I’m a ramblin’ man
Got a lucky charm and I’m cold in hand
Got a black cat bone, gonna take a stand

The whistle past the graveyard
The wind began to sing
The clocks just keep on ticking and the bells are gonna ring
The whistle past the graveyard
The wind began to sing
I got a black cat bone, so you can’t see a thing

Maybe it’s a story but I think it’s the truth
The devil’s at the crossroads
I heard him cuttin’ loose
Got black cat bone in my mojo sack
Got my guitar on my back, yeah

The whistle past the graveyard
The wind began to sing
The clocks just keep on ticking and the bells are gonna ring
The whistle past the graveyard
The wind began to sing
I got a black cat bone, so you can’t see a thing

New moon night, ‘bout half past three
A beam of light shining down on me
Sleeping under the willow tree
There’s a new moon night shining down on me

 

LOST HIGHWAY
I’m a rollin’ stone, all alone and lost
From a life of sin, well I paid the cost
When I pass by, all the people gonna say
There goes that guy, on the lost highway

Just a deck of cards, and a jug of wine
And a women’s laugh, makes a life like mine
On the day we met, I went astray
Started rollin’ rollin’ down, on the lost highway

I was just a kid, nearly twenty-two
Not good or bad, but just a kid like you
And now I’m lost, and it’s to late to pray
I paid the costs, on that lost highway

Now boys don’t start, start to ramble round
This road of sin, are you trouble bound
Take my word, or your gonna curse the day
You started rollin’ rollin’ down, that lost highway
Started rollin’ rollin’ down, that lost highway

 

REBEL
Johnny’s got a car, he likes to drive it fast
People stop and stare when he goes flyin’ past
Got a leather jacket and his hair combed back
Got himself a Chevy that he painted primer black

Yeah he’s a rebel (rebel)

Johnny’s got a girl, she wears a pretty dress
Looks like Bettie Page, baby more or less
They go out driving on a California night
Sometimes Johnny wants to rumble and fight

‘Cause he’s a rebel (rebel)
A rebel (rebel)

Sometimes he’s got to go out, sometimes he’s got to fight
Sometimes he’s got to go out on a California night

He’s a rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)

Pabst blue ribbon and a cigarette
Remember the days that will never forget
Got it tattooed into his skin
Born to loose and long live the king

He’s a rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)

Sometimes he wants to rumble, sometimes he wants to fight
Sometimes he’s got to go out on a California night

‘Cause he’s a rebel (rebel)
A rebel (rebel)

Johnny’s got a wife and kids, they’re living down the street
He’s got himself a place where the rebels go and meet
Talk about the days when they were still in school
Knockin’ back the beers, and shootin’ pool

He’s a rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)

Sometimes he wants to rumble, sometimes he wants to fight
Sometimes he’s got to go out on a California night

He’s a rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)
Rebel (rebel)

 

SOLD US DOWN THE RIVER
Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river

To many people dying in the sand
To many people want to hear a marching band
To many people listen to the lies
To many people getting set up just to die
Well, the night’s so dark and the cold it makes me shiver
Well, they sold us down the river

Well, to many people must be sleepin’ at the wheel
(Sold us down the river)
To many people want to run a dirty deal
(Sold us down the river)
To many people are just lookin’ for a buck
(Sold us down the river)
To many people just don’t care enough
(Sold us down the river)
Well, the night’s so dark and the cold it makes me shiver
Well, they sold us down the river

Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river

To many people don’t stop and ask why
To many people getting set up just to die
To many people believe what there told
To many people never get to grow old
Well, the night’s so dark and the cold it makes me shiver
Well, they sold us down the river

Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river

We need a change, we need it fast
(Sold us down the river)
We got a chance but the time is blowin’ past
(Sold us down the river)
We gotta speak and they gotta hear
(Sold us down the river)
Well the time is getting right and the time is getting near
(Sold us down the river)
Well, the night so dark and the cold it makes me shiver
Well, they sold us down the river

Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river
Sold us down the river

 

WHAT I DON’T KNOW
I love girls in pictures, I love ‘em in song
I’ve known me a few, before she came along
This one tested my metal, yeah she grounded down good
Turns out what I don’t know about women fills a mighty big book

She came without warning, she knocked down the screen
Said what I’m gonna show you, something you never seen
Well, what was I thinkin’, when I gave her a key
What I don’t know about women, might be the end of me

What I don’t know about women
I guess I don’t know too much
Some roses at the beginning
Well, it use to be enough

What I don’t know about women fills a might big book

The darkest cloud ever was over my house
And it felt like forever, soon love had run out
She left like she came in, so I took one last look
Turns out what I don’t know about women
What I don’t know about women
What I don’t know about women fills a mighty big book

 

STRING BASS, GUITAR AND A DRUM
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Well, we loved the sound of Memphis
And we loved the sound of Sun
There’s a rumble in Brighton
There’s a rumble on the beach
Well the ubangi stomp sends a shiver to my feet
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
We loved the sound of Memphis
And we loved the sound of Sun

Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Well, the three us were brothers when we lived in London
Slip into the alley, struttin’ on the street
Slappin’ on my bass while the drummer keep the beat
Summer in the city, livin’ on the run
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum

Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Well, we loved the sound of Memphis
And we loved the sound of Sun
There’s a rumble in Brighton
There’s a rumble on the beach
And the ubangi stomp sends a shiver to my feet
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
We loved the sound of Memphis
And we loved the sound of Sun

Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Well, the three us were brothers when we lived in London
Slip into the alley, struttin’ on the street
Slappin’ on my bass while the drummer keep the beat
Summer in the city, livin’ on the run
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum
Just a string bass and a guitar and a drum

 

THE WALL OF DEATH
Round and round
Round and round inside that motor dome
Blood runs wild
Blood runs hot, lot a shakin’ goin’ on

Ninety miles an hour on an Indian Scout
She’s up on the wall and around about
Hell rider on the wall of death

Feel the heat
Feel the heat risen up inside this place
Ridin’ hard
Well, she’s a ridin’ hard and putting me in a spin

She’s a thrill-a-rama, here the rumblin’ bass
Lightning speed and amazing grace
Hell rider on the wall of death

Hear the engine scream, smell the gasoline
Nothing like it you’ve ever seen, before
Chills an thrills and spills, got and iron will
Someone might get killed on the wall of death

Round and round
Round and round she rides that danger zone
Ride so fast
Well, she might crash inside that motor dome

Hundred miles an hour, hear the people shout
She’s up on the wall and around about
Hell rider, on the wall of death
She’s a hell rider on the wall of death

 

SOMETIMES YOU WIN
Well, I took off and there ain’t no turning back
Four hundred miles and the sky was turning black
If the road keeps on movin’ and the rain don’t start to fall
I can make it back by midnight if the engine doesn’t stall

Walk up to the table, lay some trouble down
The dealer throws the cards and I start to look around
Over my shoulder, I think I see an ace
And a guy at the table got a smile upon his face

Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

In the flicker of a second, feel the shadow of a doubt
Yeah, I seen this game before, I know what it’s about
I couldn’t stay in Memphis, not for another day
Baby, take a bet you cannot win if you don’t play

Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

Well, I took off and there ain’t no turning back
Four hundred miles and the sky was turning black
If the road keeps on movin and the rain don’t start to fall
I can make it back by midnight if the engine doesn’t stall

Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win)
She said, sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win)
You know, sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win)

 

THE HIGHWAY IS MY HOME
Rollin’ down the highway and I’m feelin’ like I’m dead
A hundred miles further, well I’ll stop and find a bed
We’ve been ridin hard, we been rollin’ like a dice
We could a made it further but the highways filled with ice
From New York up to Boston, hear the engine moan
Until I make it back, the highway is my home

I took off out of Kansas and the wind and rain blew
The sky was getting’ darker but who the hell knew
Cuttin’ cross the prairie, spinnin’ like a top
And it sounded like a freight train rollin’ past the stop
Darker than the night now, hear the wind blow
Until I make back, the highway is my home

Let’s go

The place was packed on Friday
They were knockin’ down the door
The band was rockin’ harder, than we ever did before
Folks had come from miles and miles
They lined up down the block
Well just about midnight, we were shut down by the cops
Searchin’ for the convict, where that bird had flown
Until I make it back, the highway is my home

Rollin’ down the blacktop well everything’s alright
Passed another truck stop well we got a show tonight
Then will all be headin’ back, and we just can’t wait
Just another fourteen hours on the interstate
Back to California, that’s where I belong
The road goes on forever, the highway goes too long

Lee Rocker – The Curse Of… / Racin’… lyrics

LEE ROCKER - TheCurseOfRockabillyfront LEE ROCKER - RacinTheDevilfront

FUNNY CAR GRAVEYARD
Ask Von Dutch, he don’t know
Then they rock, where they go
Hey man, where’s that ride
Where they go, where they hide

Well, they scrapped for metal
Or stole Ford parts
Or rusted away in a funny car graveyard

Where are all the Duke boys, General Lee
Green Hornet in an LTD
Richard Petty, being struck
Got no gas, got no luck

Well, they scrapped for metal
Or stole Ford parts
Or rusted away in a funny car graveyard

Andy’s squad car, up on blocks
What he wants it’s to keep it stock
PCH, GTO, STP
Go Man Go

Well, they scrapped for metal
Or stole Ford parts
Or rusted away in a funny car graveyard

Ask Von Dutch, he don’t know
Then they rock, where they go
Hey man, where’s that rde
Where they go, where they hide

Well, they scrapped for metal
Or stole Ford parts
Or rusted away in a funny car graveyard

 

RACE TRACK BLUES
Well, it all looked fine on paper
They say this one can’t lose
Five thrillin’ minutes later
You’re drownin’ in your shoes
From Lexington, Kentucky to the Carolina shore
This Philly runs like lightnin’
She’s never lost before

Race is over, race is through
Come tomorrow morning when the rent is due
Baby it ain’t funny, got the race track blues

Well, she leaves the starting gate like a bullet from a gun
Jockey whipped her once just to show he’s havin’ fun
Around the clubhouse turn, make a move, start to burn
Heard somebody say “you should have seen her yesterday”

Race is over, race is through
Come tomorrow mornin’, when the rent is due
Baby it ain’t funny, got the race track blues

Well I missed the daily double but I got my nightly fill
Sick of all this trouble gotta swallow a bitter pill
Hear the bugle call and my heart began to race
Put a hundred down just to win, show or place

Race is over, race is through
Come tomorrow mornin’, when the rent is due
Baby it ain’t funny, got the race track blues

Well I knew I was in trouble at the Sarasota Springs
Never won Trifecta, never feelin’ like a king
Rollin into Del Mar, rockin’ Hollywood Park
Money kept on burnin’ kept on burnin’ through the dark

Race is over, race is through
Come tomorrow mornin’, when the rent is due
Baby it ain’t funny, got the race track blues

 

ROCK THIS TOWN
Well, my baby and me went out late Saturday night
I had my hair piled high and my baby just looks so right
Well, pick you up at ten got to have you home by two,
Mama don’t know what I’ve got in store for you
Well that’s alright ‘cause we’re looking as cool as can be

Well we found a little place that really didn’t look half bad
I’ll have a whiskey on the rocks and change of a dollar for the jukebox
Well, I put a quarter right into that can, but all it played was disco, man
C’mon pretty baby, let’s get outta here right away.

We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out
We’re gonna rock this town, make ‘m scream and shout
Let’s rock, rock, rock man rock, rock
We’re gonna rock till we pop, We’re gonna roll till we drop
We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out

Well we’re having a ball just bopping on the big dance floor
Well there’s a real square cat he looks nineteen seventy four
Well, you look at me once, you look at me twice,
You look at me again there’s gonna be a fight
We’re gonna rock this town, we’re gonna rip this place apart

We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out
We’re gonna rock this town, make ‘m scream and shout
Let’s rock, rock, rock man rock, rock
We’re gonna rock till we pop, We’re gonna roll till we drop
We’re gonna rock this town, rock this place apart

We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out
We’re gonna rock this town, make ‘em scream and shout
Let’s rock, rock, rock man rock, rock
We’re gonna rock till we pop, We’re gonna roll till we drop
We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out

We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out
We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out

 

TEXARKANA TO PANAMA CITY
Oh, there’s a pick-up truck that’s rusting in the yard
And a barkin’ dog out front like he’s on guard
Well, the birds are singin’ in the trees
Ain’t nothing like the summer breeze
A hot wind is blowing through the trailer park

Well, just a mile further ain’t that far
Well, Main Street looks like an old postcard
Won’t you check the aisle, take the dollar gas
Won’t watch the convicts pick up trash
Livin’ on the land of the brave and free

Georgia, Carolina and Tennessee
These are places you really just gotta be
Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi
From Texarkana down to Panama City

Well, past the tracks on the other side of town
They got a little shack that’s almost fallin’ down
They were drinkin’ whiskey with their friends
Well, don’t you know they’re drunk again
And you know that nothing’s ever gonna change

Well, they got themselves a rockabilly band
And I went there once to try to lend a hand
Yeah, the music is hot and the beers are cold
I ain’t that young, I ain’t that old
It’s the little things gonna satisfy our souls

They got the Nascar, NFL and the NRA
I’m so glad I’m livin’ in the USA
Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi
From Texarkana to Panama City

They got a pick-up truck that’s rusting in the yard
And a barkin’ dog out front like he’s on guard
Well, the birds are singin’ in the trees
Ain’t nothing like the summer breeze
A hot wind is blowing through the trailer park

Georgia, Carolina and Tennessee
These are places you really just gotta be
Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi
From Texarkana down to Panama City

They got the Nascar, NFL and the NRA
I’m so glad I’m livin’ in the USA
Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi
From Texarkana to Panama City

 

THE RIVER RUNS
Mississippi darkness hear the drumbeat of the rain
Stuck outside of Memphis you can hear the flyer train
Standin’ at the crossroads 51 and 42
Well, the rain is sort of miles close my eyes and think of you
And the river runs

Rollin’ in like a thunder you can see the lightning strike
Drivin’ down the black top, rollin’ through the night
From Jackson down to Mobile all along the Gulf Coast shore
Well, the rain is fallin’ harder than it ever did before

And the river runs, I’m running too
Those days are done, those days are true
I’m movin’ on, to higher ground
Hear the echoes of the sand
And the river runs

Pourin’ through the drivin’ rain
The devil sits you here
Windscreen wipers marking time
Your fingers grip the wheel

Well, I’m searchin’ for the Graceland
With luck for sacred things
And there ain’t no use in cryin’
Just close your eyes and sing

And the river runs, I’m running too
Those days are done, those days are true
I’m movin’ on, to higher land
Hear the echoes of the sand
And the river runs
The river runs
The river runs

 

THE GIRL FROM HELL
I got a girl so wicked and mean
But she got big breasts
When every time I slow down
She won’t let me rest

She comes from hell
The bowels of hell
The girl from hell
As she casts a wicked spell

She makes me do everything she wants
She makes me her slave
Well, all my friends are so jealous
They think I’ve got it made

She comes from hell
The bowels of hell
The bowels of hell
The bowels of hell
The girl from hell
As she casts a wicked spell

She dances round an open fire
She dances in the nude
She keeps me up all night
Practising her voodoo

She comes from hell
The bowels of hell
The bowels of hell
The bowels of hell
She comes from hell
As she casts a wicked spell

The girl from hell
The bowels of hell
The girl from hell
As she casts a wicked spell

 

SAY WHEN
Say when, you want to be my baby
When, you’re feeling blue
If you send some words by little blue birds
Then, I’ll come running home for you

When, you want to talk things over
When, you know it’s true
If you let me know, honey
Then, I’ll show you that I’ll come running home for you

Just remember when you’re tired of living all alone
I will always be as close to you as that telephone

Say when, you want to be my baby
When, you’re feeling blue
If you send some words by little blue birds
Then, I’ll come running home for you

Just remember when you’re tired of living all alone
Well, I will always be as close to you as that telephone

Say when, you want to talk things over
When, you know it’s true
If you let me know, honey
Then, I’ll show you that I’ll come running home for you

Say when, you want to be my baby
When, you’re feeling blue
If you send some words by little blue birds
Then, I’ll come running home for you

 

LOST ON THE HIGHWAY
She was standing in the shadow
By a flood green light
Like a ghost or like an angel
From a long lost night

She said it was easy
But she’s seen a lot of things
The years been passed
Like the Santa Ana winds
Feels like it was only yesterday
Lost on the highway

The bar was empty
And the air was hot
In a darkened corner stood
An old jukebox

Filled with records from yesterday
I grabbed a couple of quarters in the music play
And it played, feels like it was only yesterday
Lost on the highway

Last time I’m seeing you, you’re crying
The rain was falling from your eye
I drove all night like I was flying
Five hundred miles down the lost highway

We knocked a few back
And had some laughs
Talked about the past
The good and the bad

She said to know just to how it feels
To loose everything beneath the spinning wheel
It feels like it was only yesterday
I know there ain’t nothing left to say
Baby, we all got our price to pay
Lost on the highway

 

RUNNIN’ FROM THE HOUNDS
Dead’s man kinfolk tracking me down
Judge and the jury waiting in the town
Footprints on the river bank
Cover up my trail
Ain’t no way I’m gonna spend another night in jail
Runnin’ from the hounds

Flash lights, flash floods
Never will be found
Hiding in the marshes
Runnin’ from the hounds

Just like a shootout from the wild, wild west
Bullets fly right by, I can’t stop to rest
Running from the pouring rain
Breathing hard and fast
Must be catching up to me
I head a shotgun blast
Runnin’ from the hounds

Flash lights, flash floods
Never will be found
Hiding in the marshes
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds

Juke joint justice, Louisiana law
Swamp land, understand
I can’t take no more
Sheriff on the radio
Calling to his boys
Heading for the interstate
Hear the city noise
Runnin’ from the hounds

Flash lights, flash floods
Never will be found
Hiding in the marshes
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds

Dead´s man kinfolk tracking me down
Judge and the jury waiting in the town
Footprints on the river bank
Cover up my trail
Ain’t no way I’m gonna spend another night in jail
Runnin’ from the hounds

Flash lights, flash floods
Never will be found
Hiding in the marshes
Runnin’ from the hounds

Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds
Runnin’ from the hounds

 

RAMBLIN’
Forty miles of Abilene
Roll on pass to New Orleans
Got no cash, got no care
Hurricane in Jackson Square

San Antonio rocky point
Ramblin’ from joint to joint

California’s shaky ground
The devil wind is blowing down
An open road for a hundred miles
Driving fast with three flat tyres

The days are long and the nights are cold
Ramble down a lonesome road

San Antonio rocky point
Ramblin’ from joint to joint

From Illinois to Arlington
Frozen to the Gulf Coast
Mobile down to Mexico
Kansas City, Tupelo
Oklahoma, El Paso

Got a guitar painted black
Ain’t no way you’re turning back
Took the fire from the flame
You can’t stop the moving train

The days are long and the nights are cold
Ramble down a lonesome road

Forty miles of Abeline
Roll on pass to New Orleans
Got no cash, got no care
There’s a hurricane in Jackson Square

The days are long and the nights are cold
Ramble down a lonesome road

San Antonio rocky point
Ramblin’ from joint to joint

 

ROCKIN’ HARDER
I see you baby as you walk in down the street
I try to get you but you got the flying feet
You got the look, you got the taste, you got the style
I’m gonna get you if it takes a little while
I’m rockin’ harder, than I ever did before

I’m drinking whiskey and I’m drinking so much beer
I got to tell you that the day is getting near
Baby, baby there ain’t nothing left to say
Baby. baby I won’t let you get away
I’m rockin’ harder, than I ever did before

I wanna warn you that I’m feeling bulletproof
Baby, baby don’t you know that it’s the truth
Leap tall buildings and I’m faster than a train
Baby, baby I ain’t feeling any pain

Got my hair piled high, got my leather jacket on
I gott a rocking band they dance until it’s dawn
Ain’t nothing better than a rockabilly song
Baby, baby don’t you know I’m feeling strong
I’m rockin’ harder, than I ever did before

I wanna warn you that I’m feeling bulletproof
Baby, baby don’t you know that it’s the truth
Leap tall buildings and I’m faster than a train
Baby, baby I ain’t feeling any pain

I’m drinking whiskey and I’m drinking so much beer
I got to tell you that the day is getting near
Baby, baby there ain’t nothing left to say
Baby. baby I’ll get you get away
I’m rockin’ harder, never ever did before
I’m rockin’ harder, never ever did before

Lee Rocker – Burnin’ Love: The Best Of lyrics

LEE ROCKER - BestOffront

Note: I am only adding the lyrics to those previously unreleased songs

BURNING LOVE
Lord almighty, I feel my temperature rising
Higher and higher its burning through to my soul
Girl, girl, girl you gonna set me on fire
My brain is flaming I don’t know which way to go

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With your burning love

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
I feel my temperature rising
Help me, I’m flaming, I must be a hundred and nine
Burning, burning, burning and nothing can cool me
I just might turn into smoke but I’m feeling fine

Your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With your burning love

Your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With your burning love

It’s coming closer
The flames are linking my body
Won’t you help me
I feel like I’m slipping away
Its hard to breath
And my chest is a-heaving
Lord have mercy
I’m burning a hole where I lay

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With your burning love
With your burning love

Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love

 

WHISKEY RIVER
Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me (oh, no)
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

I’m drowning in a whiskey river
Refresh the memory of the wetness in my soul
Feeling the amber nectar flowin’ from my mind
Warm an empty heart she left so cold

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

I’m drowning in a whiskey river
Refresh the memory of the wetness in my soul
Feeling the amber nectar flowin’ from my mind
Warm an empty heart she left so cold

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

Whiskey River takes my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

 

VIVA LAS VEGAS
Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that’s ready to burn
So get those stakes up higher
There’s a thousand pretty women waitin’ out there
And they’re all livin’ devil may care
And I’m just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn’t sleep a minute away
There’s black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you needs a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin’
And your one armbandits crashin’
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turnin’ day into nighttime
Turnin’ night into daytime
If you see it once you’ll never be the same again

I’m gonna keep going’ on the run
I’m gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I’ll always remember that I had a swingin’ time
I’m gonna give it everything Ive got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shout a seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas
Viva, viva Las Vegas

 

HARD HEADED WOMAN
Well, a hard headed woman
A soft hearted man
Been the cause of trouble
Ever since the world began
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Adam told to Eve
“Listen here to me,
Don’t you let me catch you
Messin’ round that apple tree”
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Samson told Delilah loud and clear
“Keep your cotton pickin’ fingers out my curly hair”
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

I heard about a king who was doin’ swell
Till he started playing with that evil Jezebel
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

I got a woman
A head like a rock
If she ever went away
I’d cry around the clock
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
Well, a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man (a-aha)
Well, a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man (oh yeah)

 

THOSE DAYS ARE DONE
I was searching for an answer
I was looking in your eye
Road is going faster
And the miles pick up by
I asked you ‘bout question
You looked like you’ve been crying
Say you don’t remember
But I know that it’s a lie

You were still in high-school
I was running with the band
Think it’ll last forever
Let it slip right through your hand
From a haze of beer and cigarettes
Left with all the smoke
Nights with you I don’t regret
You’re running out of rope

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

Well, the winter is blowing past you
Like a razor blade
It cuts you down
Heading back to where it started
Crying all your broken hearted days

Everything is easier
Nothing is like it seems
Baby, what are you driving at
Ain’t a living sin
You were working on a answer
You were looking for some fun
Baby don’t you know
That there ain’t no place left to run

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

Well, the days are growing shorter
Time is closer then
Picture you remember
Or you work the perfect plan
Sometimes it seems like yesterday
Nothing’s like it seems
Everything’s heading south
You sometimes gotta scream

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

I was searching for an answer
I was looking in your eye
Road is going faster
And the miles pick up by
I asked you ‘bout question
You looked like you’ve been crying
Say you don’t remember
But I know that it’s a lie

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done

Well, the winter is blowing past you
Like a razor blade
That cuts you down
Heading back to where it started
Crying all your broken hearted days

Everything is easier
Nothing is like it seems
Baby, what are you driving at
Ain’t a living sin
You were working on a answer
You were looking for some fun
Baby don’t you know
That there ain’t no place left to run

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

I said, there ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done

I said, there ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done
