The Allman Brothers Band Midnight Rider

Well, I’ve got to run to keep from hidin’,

And I’m bound to keep on ridin’.

And I’ve got one more silver dollar,

But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no,

Not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider.

And I don’t own the clothes I’m wearing,

And the road goes on forever,

And I’ve got one more silver dollar,

But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no

Not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider.

And I’ve gone by the point of caring,

Some old bed I’ll soon be sharing,

And I’ve got one more silver dollar,

But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no

Not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider.

No, I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no

Not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider.

No, I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no

Not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider.

The Allman Brothers Band Everybody’s Got A Mountain To Climb

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb,

This road we travel gets a little tough sometimes,

Sometimes I know you feel like you can’t go on,

Need somebody help you get back home,

Need a friend to help you find your way home.

Reverend Pearly Brown say there’s peace out on the water at night,

Big sun going down, Lord it’s a pretty sight,

Red and blue across the water makes a wonderful song,

Listen to it all night long.

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb,

Don’t be discouraged when the sun don’t shine,

Gotta keep on pulling, you gotta keep on tryin’,

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb,

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb.

Who’d cross the face of a little smilin’ child?,

Take away the loser’s one last chance?,

Who wouldn’t linger down by the old river for a while?

You know the whole world loves you when you’re dancin’.

So, hey let me tell you what I’m talkin’ about,

You can’t go around with your lip stuck out.

Life ain’t all good but it sure ain’t bad,

Anyway it’s the best old life I ever had.

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb,

Don’t be discouraged when the sun don’t shine,

Gotta keep on pulling, you gotta keep on tryin’,

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb.

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb,

Don’t be discouraged when the sun don’t shine,

Gotta keep on pulling, you gotta keep on tryin’,

Everybody’s got a mountain to climb.

The Allman Brothers Band Keep On Keepin’ On

Tried everything I know,

Held my hand but now I’ve got to show.

Trying to understand the things you’ve learned,

But you don’t seem to be concerned at all.

[Chorus:]

I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on,

Ain’t gonna leave you alone,

Keep on keepin’ on,

Ain’t gonna leave you alone,

Gonna get you to love me.

Sometimes it seems like there’s just no way at all,

You just keep drifting and drifting away.

You ain’t never home, when I call you on the telephone,

But I’m gonna fool around, get you back someday.

[Chorus]

I don’t care what everybody’s gotta say,

I’m gonna love you anyway,

Even if you don’t care any longer,

My little bit of love keeps getting stronger.

Lord I’m gonna, keep on keepin’ on.

Gonna, make you mine. Love me…yeah.

The Allman Brothers Band It Ain’t Over Yet

Well, it’s rainin’ out the window.

With no sadness on your face.

As you’re cleaning out your closet.

Throw your clothes around the place.

I can’t stand to see you leaving.

I’m not ashamed to beg you to stay.

I can’t lock the door and keep you.

I won’t stand in your way.

Guess I’ve got to let you go.

But there’s just one thing you should know.

It ain’t over, it ain’t over yet.

You might walk away but you won’t forget.

I’ll never stop loving you.

My mind is set.

So do what you gotta do yeah.

Cause it ain’t over yet.

Guess I should have seen it coming.

But I can see it clearly now.

Gonna change my way of livin’.

Try to get you back somehow.

Some night when you’re lonely.

And your thoughts have turned to me.

Just when you least expect it.

I’ll come walking through your dreams.

So go on take that taxi ride.

Cause I know time is on my side.

It ain’t over, it ain’t over yet.

You might walk away but you won’t forget.

I’ll never stop loving you.

My mind is set.

Do what you gotta do baby.

It ain’t over….

The Allman Brothers Band Hell And High Water

We’ve been through hell and high water

Ready to go through it all again

As long as we’ve got a quarter between us all

We’re gonna have money to spend, oh

Kicked down the doors in New Orleans

We got busted at Grove Hill where nobody goes

And Long Bob drove us to the Badlands

You can bet your ass we’re gonna make it

down to tomorrow night’s show

We took time by the horns

Cryin’ out loud

Stood there naked up there in front of the crowd

Been a million miles

On a lost highway

They might name a street after us one of these days

Oh, we’ve seen the good times, we’ve seen the bad

Worse time we ever seen, is the best some folks ever had

And the Stone mowed us down, with a cold-hearted quill

But we ain’t changed our ways, and I guess we never will

We took time by the horns

Cryin’ out loud

Stood there naked up there in front of the crowd

Been a million miles

On a lost highway

They might name a street after us one of these days.

The Allman Brothers Band Please Call Home

Take one last look… before you leave,

’cause oh, somehow it means so much to me.

And if you ever need me, you know where I’ll be.

So please call home… if you change your mind.

Oh, I don’t mind.

I guess I saw it comin’… day by day.

But oh, I could not stand the failure.

Before you leave, there’s just one thing I must say.

Please call home… if you change your mind.

Oh, I don’t mind.

And I know, that you’re used to runnin’.

Oh you’re lost baby, and I ain’t funnin’.

But oh, when you call to me, well, I’ll come runnin’

safe to your side… again I’ll confide… in you.

So go on, I won’t say no more.

My heart ain’t in it, but I’ll hold the door.

But just remember, what I said before.

Please call home… if you change your mind.

The Allman Brothers Band Angeline

Ridin’ in a long gray limousine.

Sittin’ in a pair of hundred dollar jeans.

Tryin’ to talk sense to a rock’n’roll queen.

Damn, best kinda livin’ anybody ever seen.

Oh, Angeline.

[Chorus:]

Lookin’ at the bright lights, searchin’ for the sliver screen.

I never seen a woman who could look so good,

and be so doggone mean. Yeah.

Oh, midnight struttin’ in New York City.

Midnight woman, she is lookin’ so pretty.

Her little heart beat in rhythm with the world.

She used to be her mama’s little girl.

Hey, hey Angeline.

[Chorus]

Whoa, just a game that she loves to play,

leavin’ broken hearts all along the way.

She’s got friends that she ain’t never used.

She’s winnin’ now but she’s bound to lose.

Oh, Angeline.

[Chorus]

The Allman Brothers Band Rockin’ Horse

“My gaurdian angel wears a hard hat,”

Said the boy with the microphone

“Else, I wouldn’t be standing here today

Ever since I was a young a boy

I couldn’t leave well enough alone

Always trouble standing in my way

Up, down, anywhere but in the middle

Off the wagon, under the wheel again

All or nothing – never could do just alittle

Never could leave it alone

Got to ride that rocking horse

Hard living be the death of me

Lead me to an early grave

To die in the saddle must be my destiny

But to ride this rocking horse I must be crazed

Good clean fun is just my imagination

Down and dirty that’s the way the game is played

This hard life has caused me aggravation

Never could leave it alone

Got to ride that rocking horse

Can’t leave it alone

Got to ride that rocking horse
