First Meyerjon + Greyhound Blues Band: songs Meyerjon, except there where it's noted.

Geetee's song (lyrics: Niks/ music: Meyerjon)

I’d only seen you once
How was i to know
What triggered me on that moment
Just to let my fuses blow

Like to tear down your resistance
Hope these words will see me through
I’m so glad with your existance
Here’s a song to get to you

No logic i can cling to
Can only sing to you how i feel
Your sparkling eyes make me stammer
Baby, i’m head over heals

Struck me like a hammer
My tongue is paralized
Your eyes make me stammer
Baby, i’m totally hipnotized

Can’t getta sleeping

Can’t getta sleeping i’ve got worries on my mind
Just while away the hours trying to ease my mind

My hands are shaking like a leave on a tree
Seems the whole world is looking down on me

It’s quiet outside whole city’s gone to bed
My baby’s outthere somewhere
she was the sweetst thing i’d ever had

wishy-washy woman put her spell on me
wishy-washy woman brought me down to her knees
and now that the woman’s gone
i’d never can getta sleeping

Just a dream (B.Broonzy)

It was a dream, lord, what a dream i had on my mind
Yeah, when i woke up baby
Not a penny could i find

I dream i played the numbers
I played the horses too
I dream i won so much money
I didn’t know what to do
But that was a dream just a dream i had on my mind
Yeah, when i woke up baby
Not a penny could i find

I dream i was in the white house
Sitting in the president’s chair
I dream he shook my hand
Said Jonnie i’m glad you’re here
But that was a dream just a dream i had on my mind
Yeah, when i woke up baby
Not a chair there could i find

I dream i got married
And started a family
I had ten little children
They all looked like me
But that was a dream just a dream i had on my mind
Yeah, when i woke up baby
Not a child there looked like mine

Cricket blues

Like the cricket i’ve been
Fiddling all summer long
And now that winter comes
I can fiddle some more

Tug me in your bed, mama
And let me be your man
One night with me
make you understand

soon snow falls
evil wind begins to blow
let me fiddle baby
and your house won’t be so cold

I'm a cricket, baby
I can fiddle in the winter too
and when it comes to loving
I sure know what to do

Chili Blues

I make it spicy and hot
I make it sour en sweet
Take a lot of cheese and kidney beans
‘cause i make chili
and my baby she likes chili

so i give her chili in the morning
chili in the night
when she comes home
I know ev’rything’s gonna be alright
‘cause i make chili
and my baby she likes chili

there ain’t no way about it
you can make it if you try
guarantee see likes it
heaven knows the reason why

and in the night in my bed
when my baby is fed
she makes me feel glad
calls me her chili dad
‘cause i make chili
and my baby she likes chili

If you go

If you go you must know
I’ve always had you on my mind
If you go you must know
I’ll always love you till the end of time
And when it’s really time
To say goodbye
I can say this with all my heart
That if i go you must know
I’ll loved ‘till the day i die

Some many years we’ve been together
celebrating good times
although we had some stormy wheater
we always managed to survive
there isn’t thing we didn’t try together often challenging the ride
so i’ll say
That if i go you must know
I’ll loved ‘till the day i die




Shake it for me
(W.dixon)

You sure look good
Don’t me a thing for me
I’ve got a hipshaking woman
She shakes just like a willow tree

You went away baby
Got back just a little too late
I’ve got a hipshaking woman
She shakes just like a willow tree

Shake it baby shake it for me
Shake it baby shake it for me
I’ve got a hipshaking woman
She shakes just like a willow tree

When my baby walks
See looks fine and mellow
When my baby stops
Flesh got shaking like jellow
I’ve got a hipshaking woman
She shakes just like a willow tree

These babes

Chorus
My baby left my after eating all my crops
Yes, she stripped me naked
Now the blues is never gonna stop

My place is like heaven
But my baby doesn’t know
She thinks heaven
Is right next door
Chorus

Red is the color
Of her evening dress
Gold on her fingers
That put me in a mess
Chorus

These babes are evil
And don’t mean no good
Jump up and leave you
Like you knew thy would
Chorus

Ease off

Chorus 2x
Ease off, mama
You’re moving much too fast
The way you’re been moving
It just won’t last

You got me, baby
Naked to the skin
Wondering where i ‘m going
Where i’ve been

Chorus 2x .

Here i’m
Naked to the bone
Wondering if you ever
Let me go home

Chorus

Highway 28

It’s middle of the night and
I’m driving home
I’ve got Lightning Hopkins and
Magic Sam on my car radio

Just one more mile and it
Won’t be long
Can almost smell my woman
God knows her sent is so strong

Highway 28
White lights up ahead
I’m wondering what they do there
Those lights should be red
I’m hitting down my breaks
I’m pulling at my wheel
One moment of silence
Then an explosion of steel
It’s middle of the night and
I’m driving home
I’ve got Lightning Hopkins and
Magic Sam on my car radio

Don’t mind people grinning (trad.)

Chorus
Don’t mind people grinning in you face
Don’t mind people grinning in you face
You better bare this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don’t mind people grinning in you face

Now your mother may talk about you
Your brothers and your sisters too
Don’t care how you life
They talk about you still
You better bare this in mind
A true friend is hard to find

Chorus

They jump you up and down
They tear you ‘round and 'round
As soon as your back is turned
They trying to crush you down
You better bare this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don’t mind people grinning in you face

Chorus

Scissors

I write you this letter with words that are plain
I know you are in trouble and in a lot of pain
When things are just too big
And ev’rything is shit
I wish you a pair of scissors that cut
Cut it in half, scissors
‘till there’s nothing left

a doctor told you, you face an awfull road ahead
you have to walk each mile carrin’ yourself on your back
When things just too big
And ev’rything is shit
I wish you a pair of scissor that cut
Cut it in half, scissors
‘till there’s nothing left

when you find yourself in the dark and you look for some help
just find your scissors they can cut you away from your hell
When things just too big
And ev’rything is shit
I wish you a pair of scissor that cut
Cut it in half, scissors
‘till there’s nothing left
cut it in half and in half and in half and in half
‘till there’s nothing left

I’m hooked

I’m hooked for you mama
Tug me in with your line
‘cause baby your the one
I’ve been looking for all my life

Like a fish my mama
I’ve been going down for your line
And i’m so glad
I’ve found your line

When i look in the mirror
I see one happy man
‘cause i’ve got a woman
that really understands
I’m hooked for etc.

Some many fishes
Swimming in the sea
I’m so glad
You were looking for me
I’m hooked for etc.
