Lucero She’s Just That Kind Of Girl

Running down a busy street

She was drunk when she kissed me

I know better than to be

Falling in love so easily

She’s just that kind of girl

That kind of girl

I think one day she’ll be my wife

I think I asked a hundred times

Asked the first night that we met

A hundred and one and she’ll say yes

She’s just that kind of girl

That kind of girl

You can’t wait around

You can’t wait around

I’ll come clean

I want you to wait for me

We’ll just have to wait and see

About the things between her and me

I know better than to be

Falling for her kisses in the street

Lucero Sounds Of The City

I ain’t no, good no more

at being alone like I was before

so darling girl, won’t you call my name

give me something to believe, take away the pain

I wanna take you out to a show

I wanna kiss you while the bands play their rock and roll.

I’m falling in love to the sounds of the city

all the streets lead me always back to you

no need to be shy you’re lookin’ too pretty

please tell me what should I do.

It ain’t sad, its just the way it goes

what are ya doing in this kinda place all alone?

now ain’t the time to be going home

if you stay I think we can get along

me and my friends we might not look like much

but we got the time and we know when to push our luck.

I’m falling in love to the sounds of the city

all the streets lead me always back to you

no need to be shy you’re lookin’ too pretty

please tell me what should I do.

Just hold on to me, give me your hand

everyones watching I don’t give a damn

I just need you, need you to see

My hearts in my hands, I’m asking you please

Can’t you hear trains crossin’ over the seventh street bridge

the sounds of the bars closing down and the kids

who don’t wanna go home but they can’t stay here

and the moon’s sinking low in the sky

It ain’t sad, its the way it goes

what are ya doing in this kinda place all alone?

now ain’t the time to be going home

if you stay I think we can get along

me and my friends we might not look like much

but we got the time and we know when to push our luck.

I’m falling in love to the sounds of the city

all the streets lead me always back to you

no need to be shy you’re lookin’ too pretty

please tell me what should I do. [x2]

Please tell me what should I do.

Lucero Nobody’s Darlings

Now shut up and play that guitar.

Just shut up and play that guitar.

We ain’t nobody’s darlings,

We never should’ve made it this far.

We ain’t nobody’s darlings,

So shut up and play that guitar.

I settle for watching her dance.

I’m just watching her dance.

We ain’t nobody’s darlings,

We never stood a chance.

We ain’t nobody’s darlings,

So I settle for watching her dance.

Now we got to the game

Just a little too late.

Spent our early days,

We spent our early days

Just fucking up.

We ain’t nobody’s darlings,

We ain’t nobody’s boys.

Lucero Texas & Tennessee

It was Texas, it was Tennessee

It was what I had come into me

You were unlike anything before

Black magic, devil killer, I was yours

It was the early days of rock ‘n roll

It was Otis, it was Memphis soul

It was a plane crash, it was overnight

It was burnin’ fast and burnin’ bright

[Chorus:]

Baby, don’t you talk no more, that looks is loud enough

You don’t have to tell me how it feels not to be in love

You see, that was my oldest game, darlin’, it was my claim to fame

And I knew that when I met you, all that you would need is more than what I got

Oh, so baby, please just stop

It was Texas, it was Tennessee

It was exes and some wannabes

It was reckless, it was understood

It didn’t matter cuz it felt so good

And I’ll still be here if you change your mind

But I can see the leaving in your eyes

Don’t want to hear it, cuz I know it well

I’ve said it all before to someone else

[Chorus]

[Break]

It was Texas, it was Tennessee

A kind of love a-closer kin to grief

It was everything that I could want

But California came and took it all

[Chorus]

Lucero Who You Waiting On?

I mainly work hard at being lazy but I couldn’t help but notice you drink

Alone a lot lately

Well I think I could start a career at a sittin’ next to you and looking in

Your eyes my dear

Come on baby who you waitin’ on, he’s been makin’ you wait far too long

I ain’t a thief and I don’t look to steal, but I saw you try to hide it

When you wiped away those tears

Your boy is runnin’ late and I’m makin’ you a deal so come on now

You wear that jacket like it’s made out of steel

You got your jack and coke, you hide behind it like a shield

Your sitting lonely and your twenty dollars in, to that jukebox and your

Songs are all about to end

Come on baby who you waiting on, he’s been makin’ you wait far too long

I ain’t a thief and I don’t look to steal, but your boy is runnin’ late and

I’m makin’ you a deal Come on baby who you waitin’ on, I think it must have

Been me all along, Now I ain’t tryin’ to come on too strong, but the way you

Brush your hair back lookin’ towards the door, every time it opens your

Heart breaks a little more I could be your man never make you wait on me I

Promise you a heart so true I’m beggin’ honey please just walk away I’m all

Yours you see ain’t no need to wait, we could burn this whole town down

Alright

We’re gettin’ shut down we’re gettin’ thrown out, tell me little girl where

You gonna go to wait now

I got my car here, parked right outside, let’s turn up the radio and take

It for a little ride

Come on baby who you waitin’ on? He’s been makin’ you wait far too long

I ain’t a thief and I don’t look to steal but I saw you try to hide it when

You wiped away those tears, Come along with me we can find another beer I

Don’t think they’ll ever kick us out the Buccaneer, hell come on now, just

Come on now

Lucero Union Pacific Line

Train left the station, I sat and watched it go.

She left me here waiting. Baby – I love you. Don’t you know

That I can’t stay here and just waste away.

There’s something out there that’s calling my name.

I’ll see you again, but don’t wait on me.

Just let me go – train’s ’bout to leave.

I wish I could get to the other side.

That Union Pacific Line can take you back home.

Can take you back home.

I picture her dancing with the boys in the bars all night.

She might not be theirs, but she sure as hell ain’t mine.

Now don’t be like that.. please understand

It’s more than a job, it’s more than a man.

I’ll see you again, but don’t wait on me.

Just let me go – train’s ’bout to leave.

I wish I could get to the other side.

That Union Pacific Line can take you back home.

Can take you back home.

Another day, another train.

Until then, I’ll wait.

I’m not getting over you.

Another day. I can’t say

That we’ll see what we can take.

You know that it hurt me too.

I’m not getting over you.

I wish I could get to the other side.

That Union Pacific Line can take you back home.

Can take you back home.

Lucero California

Left a darling down in Georgia

Lost a girl to Tennessee

Now I’m goin’ out to California

Where somebody cares for me

Hey there – hey there darlin’

Don’t break too many hearts

Keep ’em at a distance

And you keep ’em all guessing

You got a nice hand

But never show your cards

Double bourbon on the rocks on the weekend

Four or five on Saturday night

You better watch it with the looks you’re stealing

Them boys can’t treat you right

Hey there – hey there darlin’

Don’t break too many hearts

Keep ’em at a distance

And you keep ’em all guessing

You got a nice hand

But never show your cards

When I get to California

Kiss goodbye this southern heat

The California stars are my girls

For all the night, for all the night

Drank away my girl in Texas

Ended up in new Orleans

All the women down there knew better

Than to mess around with me

Hey there – hey there darlin’

Don’t break too many hearts

Keep ’em at a distance

And you keep ’em all guessing

You got a nice hand

But never show your cards

When I get to California

Kiss goodbye this southern heat

The California stars are my girls

For all the night, for all the night

Hey there – hey there darlin’

Don’t break too many hearts

Keep ’em at a distance

And you keep ’em all guessing

You got a nice hand

But never show your cards

Hey there – hey there darlin’

Don’t break too many hearts

Keep ’em at a distance

And you keep ’em all guessing

You got a nice hand

But never show your cards

Don’t break too many hearts

Don’t break too many hearts

Don’t break too many hearts

Lucero Hate And Jealousy

I got no jealousy and hate inside me

To keep me warm, keeps me warm

Can’t settle for nothing less

Trying to prove myself since I was born,

Since I was born

Helplessness just burns me up inside

I can’t see the savior for the light

What ain’t yours may not be mine

I want nothing that ain’t truly mine

If I could I would stop caring

But I don’t like hearing, I’m not good enough

I know that it’s not too late,

Well I don’t want to go away

I let it burn me up

Lucero Sing Me No Hymns

The rain’ll wash away the piss and blood

But the water’s not enough

To wash away the things that I’ve done

So I just keep on moving all the same

The mountains they ain’t far

And up there they don’t know my name

Sing me no hymns

When I get home

Leave them with god

Leave me alone

I will do as I feel need be done

To pay back what I owe

For all the blood and all the lost ones

Until I feel the proper time has come

Leave me be and let me drink

I need none of your good intentions

Lucero Johnny Davis

Johnny Davis never let us down

Started up on the west side of town

By the 60s the midwest was ours

The bike’s a body and John was the heart

Meetings and the races and the women looked good

Raising hell and living like nobody else would

Johnny Davis never let us down

Since he’s gone the boys are different now

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade

Johnny never backed down from a fight

By the end we lived in changing times

The new guys thought that they were movie stars

After `69 it fell apart

Edges of an empty parking lot it rained chrome

Johnny in the middle stood his ground and fought alone

Johnny could took em one on one

But his young rival simply pulled a gun

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade

You live the life you love, you love the life you live

Maybe that’s enough honey to get us out of this

Build it up to speed, Give it all it needs

In the end it knocks you down and throws you in the weeds

If what you say is true, hell sometimes you gotta lose

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade
