JJ Cale That Kind Of Thing

It’s that kind of thing babe, no alibis

It’s that kind of thing babe, shuffle or die

Going through these changes, like Mr. Right

It’s that kind of thing babe, no alibis

It’s that kind of thing babe, pay your dues

It’s that kind of thing babe, win or lose

Going through these changes, like Mr. Right

It’s that kind of thing babe, no alibis

JJ Cale Hard Times

Hard times is about to get me

Hard times, they hurt my hands

Hard times, it took my woman

Hard times lead her to a richer man

Caught in the middle of some fool’s advice

If you work real hard, you get a piece of the pie

Can’t you hear that laughing

No, the jokes don’t end

Consider my resources, it’s a hard time to eat

Hard times, it’s rough all around

Hard times, it’s all gonna end

Hard times, just thinking about it

Consider my resources, it’s a hard time to eat

Hard times

Hard times

Hard times

JJ Cale Can’t Live Here

Well you can’t live here like this anymore

No you can’t live here like this anymore

No you can’t live here like this

Cause your man he ain’t gonna like it

No you can’t live here like this anymore

What’s your mama gonna say about you when you get home

What’s your mama gonna say about you when you get home

She’s gonna whip your butt for sure now

She’s gonna wonder what you do now

What’s your mama gonna say about you when you get home

You better slip on across that fence where you belong

You better get on back there quick before they know you’re gone

No you can’t live here like this

Cause your people ain’t gonna like it

No you can’t live here like this anymore

JJ Cale Feeling In Love

Feeling in love, I want to testify

Little time it will take me

Feeling in love, I’m so satisfied

From the love that you gave me

The way you make my day

The things you do and say

Feeling in love, I’m so satisfied

From the love that you gave me

Feeling in love, I have no alibis

No kitschy lines to say

Only the truth, never no lies

Feeling in love today

You make all so light

You make everything all right

For your love, I’m so satisfied

Feeling in love today

To my life, you bring love

You’re a saint, I know

You give to me love and joy

From here it seems to flow

For the times you were there

When no-one else seemed to care

For your love, I’m so satisfied

Feeling in love today

There is nothing to compare

You always seem to share

For your love, I’m so satisfied

Feeling in love today

Feeling in love today

Feeling in love today

Feeling in love today

JJ Cale Hey Baby

Hey baby, it’s your time now

Hey baby, you made it somehow

Don’t let nobody come and bring you down

Hey baby, you’ve got ’em on the run

You know, you’ve got ’em on the run

I know you, you have just begun

When you came into my life

My love, I thought I would die

There’s never been nobody like you

You take away these blues

Hey baby, you’re looking real good

You know, you’re looking real good

You make the day a song like I knew you would

When you came into my life Lord, I thought I would die

I never met nobody like you

For telling my troubles to

JJ Cale One Step

One step forward and two steps back

Been carrying them bricks upon my back

Bossman told me you ain’t getting paid

’til the house is built and the bricks are laid

It’s made out of wood, made out of stone

I’m building that man a fancy home

That’s the way it is let me tell you jack

It’s one step forward and two steps back

Working man he got a row to hoe

He’s up in the morning and down the road

Carry them bricks and carry that stone

Making that man a fancy home

Rich man he don’t work no more

Talks on the phone to his stockbroker

That’s the way it is let me tell you jack

It’s one step forward and two steps back

Well I’m not a thinking man you see

And I’m not looking for no sympathy

But one of these days I’ll get my fill

Be down the road and over the hill

I won’t carry them bricks again

And I won’t do it for any man

If I use my brain instead of my back

I’ll be two steps forward and one step back

That’s the way it is let me tell you jack

It’s one step forward and two steps back

JJ Cale You Got Me On So Bad

Oh Baby, you got me on so bad

I think that you’re the wickedless woman that I ever had

Sometimes you make me feel so complete

You take away my troubles, put my mind at ease

Oooh baby, you’re up to your old tricks

I’ve got something wrong right here and I know that you can fix

Sometimes you treat me like I was your natural man

I come down here to you, babe, every chance I can

Baby, you feel so good to me

I do believe that you take away my misery

Sometimes I wonder if you understand

The way you handle yourself, woman, has got me on again

JJ Cale Out Of Style

I sure do miss you babe

You know it’s been a while

Way too long since you been gone

I’m almost out of style

You treat me kind and gentle

You’re always on my mind

A love that’s true I keep for you

Until the end of time

Someday you’ve got to come back

Stay with me a while

I’ll take some time to make you mine

And keep you out of style

JJ Cale Take Out Some Insurance

A man knocked upon my door said

“Don’t you know you’re gonna die some day

And I got a plan for you man, for when you pass away

We’ll give to your mother, your kids and your wife

And all you have to give in return is your life”

Take out some insurance, insurance today

For tomorrow will come and take us away

Two men were gamblin’ in a parlour one night

When a woman walked in with her dress up so tight

She asked the two gentlemen would they fight for her name

They got up and shot her and went back to their game

Take out some insurance, insurance today

For tomorrow will come and take us away

This ain’t no sad song, don’t cry in your beer

For one day will come and we won’t be here

Somebody else will take up our game

Different place, different name

Take out some insurance, insurance today

For tomorrow will come and take us away

For tomorrow will come and take us away
