Streets are wild (Meyerjon)

Hey babe, I love you
And I wanna make you mine
Let me walk you over
Streets are wild these times

Hey babe, I need you
Feel the shivering in my spine
Let me swim you over
Ocean is deep and wide

Hey babe, no more fooling
No more cooling down
Hey babe, no more stalling
No more calling me a clown

Hey babe, I adore you
Do you want to be my wife
Take a change with me
Let’s make the walk of life

Walking days (Meyerjon)

In 19 50 o
I was born into this world
Everybody worked hard for a living
So as a kid I hab to do my own search

One day I started walking
I found me a road, so mud and cold
And every crossroad I was wondering
Which way I should go

Sometimes I had it easy
Sometimes I had it hard
Did me a lot of walking
But now my shoes getting tired of tar
I’ve been all over the world
My life seemed like a quest
But when I ran into you, honey
My walking days came to a rest

Now I sit reminiscing
About things in the past
Speaking about tomorrow
Tomorrow catches up real fast
I’ve been all over the world
My life seemed like a quest
But when I ran into you, honey
My walking days came to a rest

Last night
(M.W.Jacobs)

Last night I lost the best friend I ever had
Now you’ve gone and left me
That make me feel so bad

I’m gonna wait ‘till the tomorrow
They tell me every day brings ‘bout a change
You must know I love baby
If you leave it would be a crying shame

Now it’s early in the morning
And my love is coming down for you
I want you to tell me baby
What are we gonna do

Think it’s desire
(J.Meyerjon)
 
Sad and lonely
How I ache for your love
Think about you only
Of you I can’t get enough
What is creeping and eating me alive
Think it’s desire

My bed is hard and grim
My sheets are cold as ice
My room seems to close me in
While my door is open wide
What is creeping and eating me alive
Think it’s desire

My phone starts to ring
And my heart skips a beat
But you never seem to call me up
You just keep me laying there in heat
What is creeping and eating me alive
Think it’s desire

Sad and lonely
My body’s aches for your love
My mind thinks about you only
My heart longs for your love
What is creeping and eating me alive
Think it’s desire




Lightning bug
(D.Convay)

Chorus
I’m a lightning bug baby
I wanna shine my light on you
I ‘m gonna get real close
That’s what I’m fixing to do

Some folks call me a grasshopper
Some call me a honeybee
But I’m a lightning bug
When I shine you see

Chorus
I’m a lightning bug baby
I wanna buzz around your head
When you let me come in
I’m gonna buzz in your bed

When you hear me buzzing mama
Rush to your window and raise it up
When you let me come in
I’m gonna put some honey in your cup

Bar Room Blues (trad. Arr. Greyhound Blues Band)
Going down to the bar room
I’m gonna buy me some beer
Gonna find me woman
And rock her out of here

I feel so good
Feel so fine today
A little bit of drinking
Gonna drive my blues away

I don’t like whisky
Whisky’s too strong
It makes you clowning
All night long
Going down to the bar room
I’m gonna buy me some beer
Gonna find me woman
And rock her out of her

I say one beer
And two three four and five
Man that beer makes
A man feel alive
Going down to the bar room
I’m gonna buy me some beer
Gonna find me woman
And rock her out of here

Bag of gold blues (Meyerjon)

Leaves are falling down
It’s getting late in fall
See that bag of gold
When I’m dead you can have it all

All you have to do
Is treat me nice and kind
A better deal like me, I bet you
You’d never find

Travelling days are over
I’ve been saving up all my dimes
You and I are getting older, but
We still can have some good times

As years go passing by (D.Malone)

There’s nothing I could do
If you leave me here to cry
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by

I gave you all I owned
That is one thing you can’t deny
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by

I’m gonna leave it up to you
I said so long and not goodbye
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by
