Blue Box Blue (2007)
Accenten F6 – F – F7 etc
F – B# – F – C6 – G | As – B# – C

Woman you’re loving looks like a red fox
When you come to know her, she ends up a blue box
‘Cause she is a devil woman, puts her evil eye on you
And lost in that eye, there’s nothing you can do

Red fox sings just like a nightingale
But in the end her box has put you in your grave
‘Cause she is a devil woman, puts her evil eye on you
And lost in that eye, there’s nothing you can do

Gotta admit her box shure feels fine
But all the time she’s loving, she puts your money on the side
‘Cause she is a devil woman, puts her evil eye on you
And lost in that eye, there’s nothing you can do

So let me give you one advice
See a red fox smiling, don’t let her smile twice
‘Cause she is a devil woman, puts her evil eye on you
And lost in that eye, there’s nothing you can do

Bridge: Em – Bm – Em – A7 – D7
Eind: G7 – C9 – G7 – D#9 – G9

You’re fast on your feet | Don’t wanna settle down
You say there’s no need for you | Having a man like me around
Walking the easy street | Walking the easy street
You say you’re walking easy | But tough times are gonna come

You say you like easy lays | And one night stands
But when your looks are gone | Who’s gonna love then
Walking the easy street …

B: I know you now for three long days
What I feel for you is too good to let it go awaste
So if I could turn the clock and make three days a year
I think you would understand what I’m feeling here

Listen to your heart beat | You’d better start pacing down
I know you’re fast on your feet | But ain’t it time to settle down
You could walk the easy street | Could walk the easy street
We gonna walk on easy | And tough times we’re gonna beat

Alt
You say all the guys | Are of the cheating kind
You like to be in control | So you walk the sunny side
Walking the easy street …

E – A – B
V1 A – B – F# – B7
V2 E – A – B – E – F# – B – A#m – Cis – F#m – A - B7

Roll on Roll on Roll on Rosie
Roll on the midnight train
Where you’ve gotta go
Where you’ve gotta go, my lady (my love)

V1 It’s twelve o’clock and Birmingham flew bye
Where you’re heading now in this uncertain life

V2 So sing your song as you roll along
`lonesome me, hey lonesome`, what you’re doing

Over you, I’d never cried and him I’ll killed in spite
Now what I’ve got is this old prison life

Roll on

V1: From my window I see trains leaving town
Boats on the river and plaines coming down
From my window, From my window

From my window I hear cars in the street
Their horns are blowing and music with heavy beats
From my window, From my window

B: And in the distance snow is settling down
On the rooftops and on the ground
Makes my world seem small but wide
Makes me wonder what’s in-, what’s outside, ‘cause

Outside my window snow stopped falling down
I hold my breath, close my eyes and my mouth
Outside my window a seagull roams the sky
An other day dawning without you by my side

End: Outside my window, outside my window

Future be told (2007)
G – C9 – G – D9 – C9 – G

Come on baby, let your future be told
It’s written in your hand together we’ll grow old

Trust me darling I’m the best around
I can tell your future without any doubt

Come on ...

See, the palm of you hand is like an open book
I can see it all, all I have to do is look

Come on ...

I say it to you straight and it will be the truth
I can see no future without me and you

Come on ...

Alt
Ain’t no witch craft ain’t no magic spell
Just nature within ourselves that works well

You gotta find yourself an other dog (2007)
A – D9 – A – D9 – A – E9 / E7
Bridge: D6 – E7 – A – F#7 – B7 – E7

You say, you maybe in love with me
Could be somebody else
But I’ve read your book
Gonna put it on the shelf

You gotta find yourself an other dog
‘cause I’m gonna walk on fast
You gotta find yourself an other man
‘cause this man gonna leave you as soon as he can
You gotta find yourself an other clown
‘cause you ain’t gonna put me down no more

B: Like the good book says
You ‘ve gotta reap what you sow
And the moment when you stepped over the line
You put an other nail to your shrine
It’s time to say goodbye

You gotta find yourself an other money maker
‘cause I’m gonna shake you of my back

You gotta find yourself an other life
‘cause you won’t be part of my life no more
You gotta find yourself an other toy
This man ain’t gonna be your loverboy no more

You say, you maybe …
You say, you mayby …

Turn around
Verse: standaard
Eind: A2+6(A/B) – G/A – E/Fis – D/E – C/D – G/A – A/B

This is nobody’s blues, nobody’s blues but mine
‘cause if you knew my blues
It would be much too heavy on your mind

In the first month that I met you, you were nice and kind
Now one year later you say, you’ve changed your mind
You say, you’re walking ‘round in circles
And you was too blind to see, that the man you love couldn’t be me
Now you up and running, running so far away from me

Can still hear her talking ‘bout the things we shared
But the way she treated me was evil and bad
She promised me a bed of roses, but mine was filled with stones
All she gave me was a pack of lies and left me with a broken home
Now my days ‘ going bye so slow and I’m sinking down so low

This is nobody’s blues, nobody’s blues but mine
‘cause if you knew my blues
It would be much too heavy on your mind





Sometimes I will
(2007)
Intro: E6 - D6 – G – A 2x
A – D6 – A – E6 A – D6 – A – E7
D6 – A – D6 – E7

Sometimes I will, sometimes I don’t _ turn you on
Can’t explain _ baby
What it is, I do wrong
Sometimes I will, sometimes I don’t _ turn you on

What a man gotta to do to please you, girl
I show respect, buy you fine things and take you out in the world

Sometimes I will …

You know I love you, baby, and always treat you fair
So how can you be kind and loving, the next day you act if you don’t care

Sometimes I will …

What a girl gotta to do to please a man
She gotta be tender, loving, she has to care

Sometimes I will …

For a breath of time
(2007)
C – F – C – G – F – C 2x
Bridge: C11 – Am11 – Am – F – (C) 2x (Gsus4 – G)

For a breath of time
While I listen to your heart beat
And you listen to mine
I feel a shiver coming up
Come a rolling down my spine
So hold me just for a while
‘cause in the end, my friend
We all have to go our own way

While I feel your warm breath
Caressing my skin
Feels like a summer evening breeze
Makes me good within
So hold me just for a while
‘cause in the end, my friend
We all have to go our own way

B: Even it’s for a breath of time
For me it feels like forever
Lying here in the echo of time
I know this is forever

D – G – D – G – D – G – A – G – D
Bridge: D – A – D – G 2x
Eind: Dopen – F (greep als Dopen) – G (idem) – Bes (idem) – D (idem) en intro

I found your photo in a drawer
Memories came back in a flash
And then I wanted to call you
Put the phone back instead

But the images kept on coming
They made me feel warm inside
All the dreams I’m now recalling
Don’t seem to match with this life

B: Oo, it moves me and I’ll never forget
All the promises you’ve made in 85
Oo, it moves me when I think of how we met
Still can’t believe you were a lie

I watch the flames while I burn
All the things that you left
I know it will take some time
Forgettin’ the love I once had

Cold - Blues in G-min (2007)
Intro: Gm – D#9 - D9 – Gm – Cm – Gm – D7
Gm – Cm – Gm – Cm – Gm – Dm – D#9 – D9 – Gm
Turn Around: Gm – Cm – Gm – D7

You’re so cold in the night
When I touch you baby
It doesn’t seem fair
What has happened lately
You’re so cold in the night
When I touch you baby

Can’t explain
Why you look the other way
When I call your name
You seem miles away
Can’t explain
Why you look the other way

You better speak up
You know this doesn’t seem right
This wall of ice
You’re building up each night
You better speak up
You know this doesn’t seem rigth

You’re so cold in the night
When I touch you baby
It doesn’t seem fair
What has happened lately
No it doesn’t seem right this wall of ice
You’re building up each night

Remember (2007)
Bm9 – E9 2x
Bm9 – E9 2x G6 – F#m7 – Bm7 – G9 – F#9
Chorus: G6 – F#m7 – Bm7 – G6 – Fism7 – Bm7 – G6 - - - F#m7+9

Now when the colour that you name is always blue
And you dress black from hat to shoe
When the sky is always crying
And people are always lying

You’ve gotta remember baby, I’d never lie to you
Now when the tree that you name is a weeping willow
And you feel like walking around in your own shadow
Ev’ry game’s a losing game

Ev’ry pride turned to shame
You’ve gotta remember baby, I’d always be proud of you

C: You’ve gotta remember it, remember it well
You’ve gotta remember it, remember it, remember it well

Now when you go outside and the wind is always blowing in your face
People talk behind your back, saying you’re an awful disgrace
When no one seems to like you
Even your closest friends despise you
You’ve gotta remember baby, I’d always be loving you

C: You’ve gotta remember it, remember it well
You’ve gotta remember it, remember it, well

Strolling up a shady lane (1986 / 2007)
Into: B#m – B – C# – B – D# – F#6 – C# – As
C#6 – Fm – B#m – F#7 – C#6 – Fm7-5 – F# – A7
C#6 – Fm – B#m – D#6 – F# – As7 – C#6
Bridge: F# – F#m – C#6 – F7 – B#m – D#m – B#m | B | C# | B
F# – F#m – C#6 – B# – D#6 – As6+9 – As7


Watching you and me strolling up a shady lane
See long white stripes on the pavement
That seem to divide ev’rything I hated ev’rything I liked

Watching left and rigth to my eyes they look like twins
A meadow, a cow and a fench with sunlight on the green
A blue sky that surrounds it, can almost touch from here

B: In the midst of our life
There’s no extension of time
In the midst of our being
Why do you wanna wait for signs

Watching you and me strolling up a shady lane
See long white stripes on the pavement
Look like the small rope you learned to walk on
Why not spread your wings and fly

Ain`t easy (2007)
A (basrif A C D)- - - D7 A

What you gonna do
When you find yourself left by the one you love 2x
It ain’t easy, no it ain’t easy
It’s never been easy before

What you gonna do
When you find yourself crying in the middle of the night
It ain’t easy, no it ain’t easy
It’s never been easy before

What you gonna do
When you find out baby, it’s all been a great mistake
It ain’t easy, no it ain’t easy
It’s never been easy before

You can link yourself to the internet
Trying to find a guy in some far of flat
Or go on down to the supermarket
Wink your eyes to get things started
Is that what you wanna do?

What you gonna do
When you find out baby, it’s all been a great mistake
It ain’t easy, no it ain’t easy
It’s never been easy before

Happy as a man can be (1978 / 2007)
Intro: Bdim7 – A#dim7 – Fdim7 - A7 - D 2x
D – G7 – Bm – E7 – D – A – D – A7 (D7)
Bridge: G – Fdim7 – D – D7 – G --- - Fdim7 – A7

Didn’t know how it started
Didn’t feel it coming up
At first I tried to shake it off
But then it stuck

For weeks I fought the feeling
That was growing more inside
Felt it in my stomack
And it messed up my life

B: Gee what happened to me
I just can’t control myself
When you walked in, baby
I shouted: help, help, help

And now when I go walking
You walk next to me
And I’m as happy as
A man can be

Your house so inviting, is it expecting me
A silhouette on the curtain, is it you I see,
Gonna tapp your window

Looked so fine, high heeled shoes on your feet
And when I looked at you, you looked back at me,
Gonna tapp you window

Twist me ‘round your finger ‘cause I don’t mind
‘Cause where you’re going, I can’t go wrong,
Gonna tapp your window
