Delbert McClinton I Feel So Bad

I feel so bad

Just like a ball game on a rainy day

I tell you, I feel so bad

Just like a ball game on a rainy day

You know I just can’t make my mind up

I shake my head and walk away

Well, there’s sometime I wanna leave here, baby

Then again I wanna stay

Yeah, sometime I wanna leave here

Then again I wanna stay

You know I just can’t make my mind up

I shake my head and walk away

Well, I’m tryin’ to tell you people

Tryin’ to tell you just how I feel

Yeah, I’m trying to tell you people, people, people

Tryin’ to tell you just how I feel

You know the way my baby left me

My baby gave me a dirty deal

I got to leave, baby

I got to walk away

I’m gonna leave, baby

I’m gonna leave today

Delbert McClinton Before You Accuse Me

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

You say I been runnin’ with other women but I don’t love nobody else

I called your mama three or four hours ago

I called your mama three or four hours ago

Your mama said, son, don’t call my daughter no more

So, come on back home baby, try my lovin’ one more time, I wish you would

Come on back home baby, try my lovin’ one more time

You say I been runnin’ with other women, but I ain’t guilty of no crime

Called your mama three or four hours ago

I called your mama three or four hours ago, yes, I did

Your mama said, son, don’t call my daughter no more

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

You say I been runnin’ with other women, but I don’t love nobody else

Delbert McClinton Blues As Blues Can Get

Gonna sit right down in my easy chair

Pull out a deck of cards, I’m gonna play some solitaire

Break out a bottle, wash me a glass

To keep me company ’til the feelings pass

Everybody needs something to do

Me, I’ll just sit here and think about you

It might seem hopeless, but it ain’t that bad yet

It’s just the blues as blues can get…

I need to call somebody, someone I can trust

I need the number for Lovers Anonymous

I’ll tell ’em my story, hope they’ll understand

Maybe they can explain it to me

‘Cause I don’t think I can

I’ll take your picture down from my wall

Try to remember the thrill of it all

I know it’s over, but it ain’t over yet

It’s just the blues as blues can get…

Why fight the feeling when I can’t fight back the tears?

I stare at the ceiling and I wish that you were here

I’m going crazy, but I ain’t crazy yet

It’s just the blues as blues can get…yeah, yeah

Just the blues as blues can get

It’s just the blues

I know it’s over but it ain’t over yet.

Delbert McClinton The Real Thing

I was playin’ pinball, drinkin’ my last call alone

She was leanin’ in that doorway lookin’ like a sure way home

She said, I like the way you handle that machine

I’m into playin’, if you know what I mean

So if you’re tired of mediocrity

I bet you I can make you see

You ain’t really had the real thing

‘Til I get you into my thing

There ain’t nothin’ left to explain

Once you really had the real thing

You ain’t really had the real thing

‘Til I get you into my thing

There ain’t nothin’ left to explain

Once you really had the real thing

I read the look on her face, took her off to my place fast

Man, she wasn’t foolin’, she could make a good thing last

Up all night until the break of dawn

She was leavin’ I was already gone

She whispered call me when you’ve had some rest

I closed my eyes and I confessed

I ain’t never had the real thing

Til’ you got me into your thing

There ain’t nothin’ left to explain

Once you really had the real thing

I ain’t never had the real thing

Til’ you got me into your thing

There ain’t nothin’ left to explain

Once you really had the real thing

I aint never had the real thing

Til’ you got me into your thing

There ain’t nothin’ left to explain

Once you really had the real thing

Delbert McClinton Sugar Daddy

All of me belongs to you all the time

You’re the only one that’s ever on my mind

There’s not one way that I would ever be untrue

There’s not one single part of me

That don’t miss you through and through

All of me belongs to you

Eyes are worthless cause you’re not here to see

Lips are so forgotten since you forgotten me

My arms ached from reaching out to you the way they do

There’s not one single part of me

That don’t miss you through and through

All of me belongs to you

Fingers claw the darkness in my dreams

Searching for a love I lost but can’t redeem

I’m yours and I can’t give my heart to someone new

Not one single part of me that my heart don’t include

All of me belongs to you, all of me belongs to you

Delbert McClinton Shaky Ground

Lady Luck and four leaf clovers

Won’t ease this hurt I feel all over

My life was one special occasion

‘Til your leavin’ left me this situation

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

My car got repossessed this morning

Harder times I haven’t seen in years

Girl, you better throw me a life preserver

‘Cause I’m about to drown in my own tears

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

I’m standin’ on Shaky Ground

Ever since you put me down

Delbert McClinton One More Last Chance

Give me one more last chance, to prove that I love you

Give me one more last chance, I swear that I love you

If love kept you with me before

For love’s sake, forgive me once more, oh

We’ll regret love, if we ever let love slip through our hands

Give me one more last chance, I know I’ve abused you

Give me one more last chance, I can’t bear to lose you

You heard the same words the last time, I know

But before you make your mind up to go

Now and forever, I’ll promise I’ll never hurt you again

If love kept you with me before,

For love’s sake, forgive me once more

We’ll regret love if we ever let love slip through our hands

Give me one more last chance

Give me one more last chance, baby

Oh, give me one more last chance

Baby, baby, baby

Please, please, give me one more last chance

Just one more chance, baby

Please,please,please,please

Give me one more last chance

Delbert McClinton Oh My

Oh, my, Baby don’t you cry over me anymore

Oh, my, you gonna have to learn to get by

I’ve been down before

And I’ll probably get down some more

It seems like I’ve been doin’ alright wihout you.

Listen to me, you gonna have to set me free

Woman stop your cryin’ and go and and let me be

Go out and find yourself someone

‘Cause I can’t help you none

It seems like you’d be doing much better without me

We cant talk about the things we need to talk about

Baby, ’cause we don’t see nothing the same

We tried to compromise and maybe we both tried

A little too much to change.

Delbert McClinton That’s The Way I Feel

Like gravel in the driveway

Asphalt on the highway

Like a blown out worn down tire

Like the head of a hammered nail

Like the bars in the county jail

Like a red hot branding iron

That’s the way I feel

Since I lost you

That’s the way I feel

Oh, baby, boo hoo hoo

That’s the way I feel

Like overcooked spaghetti

With my ex-wife Betty

Every day more rain

Death Valley on the 4th of July

Like a fish at a catfish fry

Heartache heartbreak pain

That’s the way I feel

Since I lost you

That’s the way I feel

Oh, baby, boo hoo hoo

That’s the way I feel

Like gravel in the driveway

Asphalt on the highway

Overcooked spaghetti

With my ex-wife Betty

That’s the way I feel

That’s the way I feel

I’m blue

That’s the way I feel

Since I lost you

That’s the way I feel

Said I’m blue blue blue

That’s the way I feel
