Sweat & Tears Blood Down In The Flood

Crash on the levee, mama, water’s gonna overflow

Swamp’s gonna rise, no boat’s gonna row

Now you can train on down to Williams Point

You can bust your feet, you can rock this joint

But, oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?

You’re gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

Now don’t you try and move me, you’re just gonna lose

There’s a crash on the levee and, mama, you’ve been refused

Well, it’s sugar for sugar and salt for salt

If you go down in the flood, it’s gonna be your own fault

Oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?

Yes, you’re gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

Well, that high tide’s risin’, mama, don’t you let me down

Pack up your suitcase, mama, don’t you make a sound

Now it’s king for king, queen for queen

It’s gonna be the meanest flood that anybody’s seen

Oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?

Yes, you’re gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

Sweat & Tears Blood Are You Satisfied

See yourself at 65 you all getting set to die

As your life goes flashing by

Were you glad to be alive?

Are you satisfied?

Did the music you hear make you dance?

Did you step to the rhythm of the chance?

Did the beat of your drum keep the time?

Did the song that you sing have a rhyme?

The things you did the friends you made

Were they heavy, heavy enough for you?

Are you satisfied?

Tell me tell me are you satisfied

Are you satisfied?

I wanna know are you satisfied

See yourself at 16

Standing on the verge of your dreams

Young man getting set to live

Giving it all a man can give

Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

Does the music you hear make you dance?

Do you step to the rhythm of the chance?

Does the beat of your drum keep the time?

Does the song that you sing have a rhyme?

The things you do the friends you make

Are they heavy, heavy enough for you?

Are you satisfied?

Tell me are you satisfied

Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

Does the music you hear make you dance?

Do you step to the rhythm of the chance?

Does the beat of your drum keep the time?

Does the song that you sing have a rhyme?

The things you do the friends you make

Are they heavy, heavy enough for you?

Sweat & Tears Blood 40,000 Headmen

Forty thousand headmen couldn’t make me change my mind

If I had to take the choice between the deafman and the blind

I know just where my feet should go and that’s enough for me

I turned around and knocked them down and walked across the sea

Hadn’t traveled very far when suddenly I saw

Three small ships a-sailing out towards a distant shore

So lighting up a cigarette I followed in pursuit

And found a secret cave where they obviously stashed their loot

Filling up my pockets, even stuffed it up my nose

I must have weighed a hundred tons between my head and toes

I ventured forth before the dawn had time to change its mind

And soaring high above the clouds I found a golden shrine

Laying down my treasure before the iron gate

Quickly rang the bell hoping I hadn’t come too late

But someone came along and told me not to waste my time

And when I asked him who he was he said, ‘Just look behind’

So I turned around and forty thousand headmen hit the dirt

Firing twenty shotguns each and man, it really hurt

But luckily for me they had to stop and then reload

And by the time they’d done that I was heading down the road

Sweat & Tears Blood Back Up Against The Wall

I was dealin’ up and down the highway

Till they caught me with a heavy load

They sentenced me to hard labor

Workin’ on the side of the road

Now I don’t deny I was guilty

And I know I broke the law

I was hungry and broke and couldn’t see no hope

And my back was up against the wall

Now I’m right outside your window

Honey open up and let me in

I broke out of jail this mornin’

And I ain’t never goin’ back again

I just had to stop by for a minute

And I can’t stay long at all

‘Cause I gotta run you see I’m under the gun

And my back is up against the wall

I was shackled to a three-time loser

A man named Jefferson

One night we got to talkin’

And I asked him what he’d done

He said a man fell over my razor

In the middle of a barroom brawl

But don’t you see it was him or me

And my back was up against the wall

Now I’m right outside your window

Honey open up and let me in

I broke out of jail this mornin’

And I ain’t never goin’ back again

I just had to stop by for a minute

And I can’t stay long at all

‘Cause I gotta run you see I’m under the gun

And my back is up against the wall

Now I’m right outside your window

Honey open up and let me in

I broke out of jail this mornin’

And I ain’t never goin’ back again

I just had to stop by for a minute

And I can’t stay long at all

‘Cause I gotta run you see I’m under the gun

And my back is up against the wall

I gotta run you see I’m under the gun

And my back is up against the wall

Yeah I gotta run you see I’m under the gun

And my back is up against the wall

Sweat & Tears Blood Fantasy Stage

Well here I am in rainy Rio de Janeiro

Play it again Sam

I really got nowhere to go

Putin’ in time

Til that early morning fly

For the woman looks fine

Dance the samba til daylight

And I know it’s just a fantasy stage

And I believe what you tell me

And I know I should be acting my age

And I believe what you tell me

Oh everybody wants to belong

Everybody needs a song

Se halba espanol

Baby have you been here long

I just don’t know girl

Everything I say is wrong

What can I do

When you don’t understand a word

I sang for you the sweetest song you’ve ever heard

And it goes like this

Babadoda……

Here’s lookin’ at you

My beautiful Bahia child

The whole night through

Dance the samba you stay wild.

Farewell brazil

You know I will be back for long

Some day we will dance the samba all night long

And you know it’s just a fantasy stage

But I believe what you tell me

And I know I should be acting my age

And I believe what you tell me

Oh everybody wants to belong

Everybody needs a song

Sweat & Tears Blood And When I Die

I’m not scared of dying

And I, don’t really care

If it’s peace you find in dying

Well then, let the time be near

If it’s peace you find in dying

Well then dying time is near

Just bundle up my coffin

‘Cause it’s cold way down there

I hear that it’s

Cold way down there, yeah

Crazy cold, way down there

And when I die, and when I’m gone

There’ll be, one child born

In this world

To carry on, to carry on

Now troubles are many

They’re as

Deep as a well

I can swear there ain’t no Heaven

But I pray there ain’t no hell

Swear there ain’t no Heaven

And I’ll pray there ain’t no hell

But I’ll never know by livin’

Only my dyin’ will tell, yes only my

Dyin’ will tell, oh yeah

Only my dyin’ will tell

And when I die, and when I’m gone

There’ll be, one child born, in this world

To carry on, to carry on

Yeah yeah

Give me my freedom

For as long as I be

All I ask of livin’

Is to have no chains on me

All I ask of livin’

Is to have no chains on me

And all I ask of dyin’ is to

Go natrually, only wanna

Go naturally

Here I go!

Hey hey

Here come the devil

Right behind

Look out children, here he come

Here he come, heyyy

Don’t wanna go by the devil

Don’t wanna go by the demon

Don’t wanna go by satan

Don’t wann die uneasy

Just let me go

Naturally

And when I die, and when I’m dead

Dead and gone

There’ll be

One child born, in our world

To carry on, to carry on

Sweat & Tears Blood Cowboys And Indians

Looking back to when I was a kid

All I wanted was to be a cowboy

A city cowboy

Wore a hat and had two silver guns

And I’d get a friend to be the Indian

He never would win

Him and me, fought a battle

Chased each other through the alley

Super me, winning battles

Was my manifest destiny

Then somewhere I had a change of ways

Decided I would rather be an Indian

Me and my friend

Super me, winning battles

Then I got a sense of history

Looking back, it’s no surprise to find

Lots of people kept on playing cowboys

Killing Indians

Sweat & Tears Blood Don’t Explain

Hush now, don’t explain

Just say you’ll remain

I’m glad your back, don’t explain

Quiet, don’t explain

What is there to gain

Skip that lipstick

Don’t cry, don’t lie, explain

You know that I love you

And what love endures

All my thoughts of you

For I’m completely yours

Hurts to hear folks chatter

When they say you cheat

Right or wrong, don’t matter

When you’re with me, sweet

Hush now, don’t explain

You’re my joy and pain

My life’s yours love

Don’t explain

Sweat & Tears Blood Alone

I’m so alone

I’m on my own now

I’m going home

You’ve gone away

Hung up my day now

I just can’t stay

When I tell you that I love you

I love you much more than you will ever realize

I do

I’m by myself

Up on the shelf now

I’m getting off

When you tell me that you need me

How can I believe you when you’re never home to talk

With me

Sweat & Tears Blood Almost Sorry

I sit alone here in my one room

Waiting for the company to call

Four times around the wheel is enough for anyone

I’m on my own

And I’m almost sorry that I left you

A blind man me

I thought to be happy you just have to be free

Almost sorry that I left you

I must be blind

I’m sorry that I left you

I’m a blind man

I gave away all of my, all your love

And now I’ve seen them all alone

I hope I didn’t make a big mistake now

Cause when I think of you it makes me feel sad

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

Sorry that I left you

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

Sorry that I left you

A blind man me

I thought to be happy you just have to be free

It wasn’t like we didn’t talk about things

But when you talked about forever

I knew my … love for freedom

Would call my name again and lift me away

Sometimes I wonder who I talk to

When things are really getting me down

I know I’m gonna wish I had you bad baby

Who knows a man who never had to say

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

Sorry that I left you

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

I gave away all of my, all your love

And now I’ve seen them all alone

I hope I didn’t make a big mistake

Cause when I think of you it makes me feel sad

Sorry that I left you

Almost sorry that I left you

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

Almost sorry that I left you

Sorry that I left you
