The Heartbreakers The Same Old You

Hey, I remember you back in ’72

With your David Bowie hair and your platform shoes

You had a part-time job, selling fast food

But out on the street you was nobody’s fool

[Chorus:]

Baby way down deep it’s the same old you

Way down deep you ain’t hiding the truth

Just for a minute you had me confused

But baby way down deep it’s the same old you

Well you can walk trough the city on fire

You can try and turn away fram truth

Living life like a young politician

Sure of yourself and bullet-proof

But baby

[Chorus]

We could buy a ’62 Cadillac

Put a Fender amplifier in the back

Drive straight to the heart of America

Turn up to ten, let that sucker blast

[Chorus]

The Heartbreakers Too Much Ain’t Enough

Looks like you got a little more to lose

Now little more at stake

I see you had a hard time

Livin’ with the change

You got me on the line

Now tryin’ to call your bluff

But you just won’t be satisfied

Too much ain’t enough

It ain’t enough, it ain’t enough

Yeah, you’re standing by the telephone

Waiting for the word

And ever since that bathroom scene

There’s been a slight concern

I’m tryin’ to make this easy baby

You seem to like things rough

You just can’t be satisfied

Too much ain’t enough

Too much ain’t enough

Too much ain’t enough

Come on baby I’m down on my knees

Guess some little pill just can’t be pleased

Little miss queen of hearts you are a strange thing

Why you wanna make so vague

I’m wanderin’ through this mess you made

To see what I can save

I’m livin’ on the line now

Tryin’ to call your bluff

But you just won’t be satisfied

Too much ain’t enough

Too much ain’t enough

Too much ain’t enough

The Heartbreakers Good Enough

She was hell on her mama

Impossible to please

She wore out her daddy

Got the best of me

And there’s somethin’ about her

That only I can see

And that’s good enough

You’re barefoot in the grass

And you’re chewin’ sugarcane

You got a little buzz on

You’re kissin’ in the rain

And if a day like this

Don’t ever come again

Well that’s good enough

Good enough for me

Good enough for right now

Good enough for me

Good enough for right now

God bless this land

God bless this whiskey

I can’t trust love

It’s far too risky

If she marries into money

She’s still gonna miss me

And that’s good enough

Gonna have to be good enough

The Heartbreakers Forgotten Man

Well I feel like a forgotten man

I understand the dark

when it hangs upon the water

when the wolves and dogs all bark

well I feel like a forgotten man

I feel like a forgotten man

Well I feel like a four letter word

I know what few can do

how angry words can pierce the heart

how a soul can sink so low

I feel like a forgotten man yes

I feel like a forgotten man

Well I feel like I’m forever damned

since our love is gone

no lust, no rage, no wicked thoughts

just pain, that lingers on

I feel like a forgotten man

I feel like a forgotten man yes

I feel like a forgotten man

The Heartbreakers Down South

Headed back down south

Gonna see my daddy’s mistress

Gonna buy back her forgivness

Pay off every witness

One more time down south

Sell the family headstones

Drag a bag of dry bones

Make good on my back loans

So if I come to your door

Let me sleep on your floor

I’ll give you all I have

And a little more

Sleep late down south

Look up my former mentors

Live off yankee winters

Be a landlord and a renter

Create myself down south

Impress all the women

Pretend I’m samuel clemens

Wear seersucker and white linens

So if I come to your door

Let me sleep on your floor

I’ll give you all I have

And a little more

Spanish moss down south

Spirits cross the dead fields

Mosquitoes hit the windshield

All document remain sealed

So if I come to your door

Let me sleep on your floor

I’ll give you all I have

And a little more

I’ll give you all I have

And a little more

The Heartbreakers Joe

My name’s Joe, I’m the CEO

Yeah I’m the man makes the big wheels roll

I’m the hand on the green-light switch

You get to be famous, I get to be rich

Go get me a kid with a good lookin’ face

Bring me a kid can remember his place

Some hungry poet son-of-a-bitch

He gets to be famous, I get to be rich

Or bring me a girl

They’re always the best

You put ’em on stage and you have ’em undress

Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick

Hey! Now that’s what I call music!

Well they’ll come lookin’ for money when the public gets bored

But we’ll fight ’em with lawyers they could never afford

Yeah I’ll make her look like a spoiled little bitch

She gets to be famous, I get to be rich

Or bring me a girl

They’re always the best

You put ’em on stage and you have ’em undress

Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick

Hey! Now that’s what I call music!

So burned out Johnny thinks the books are shifty

What good’s that alchy to me when he’s fifty?

Well we could move catalog if he’d only die quicker

Send my regards to the gig and a case of good liquor

He gets to be famous, I get to be rich

He gets to be famous, I get to be rich

My name’s Joe, I’m the CEO

I’m the man makes the big wheels role

The Heartbreakers Kings Road

Well they put me out on the old Kings Road

I didn’t know which way to go

There was people all around

Wearin’ funny lookin’ clothes

Some boys, some girls, some I don’t know

[Chorus:]

I didn’t know which way to go

I’m a new world boy on the old Kings Road

Rockabilly music was in the air

I looked in the door, they said,

“Come over here”

They had socks and shirts and underwear

That I’d seen before, but I don’t know where

[Chorus]

A Pakistani man said, “Listen here

Let me fix you up before you go back there

You can’t get ’em in the USA

Not in New York City, not in West LA.”

I thought about it, said, “I don’t know

I’m a new world boy on the old Kings Road”

The Heartbreakers Something Good Coming

I’m watching the water

Watching the coast

Suddenly I know

What I want the most

And I want to tell you

Still I hold back

I need some time

Get my life on track

I know that look on your face

But there’s somethin’ lucky about this place

And there’s somethin’ good comin’

For you and me

Somethin’ good comin’

There has to be

And I’m thinking ’bout mama

And about the kids

And the way we lived

And the things we did

How she never had a chance

Never caught a break

And how we pay for our big mistakes

I know so well the look on your face

And there’s somethin’ lucky about this place

There’s somethin’ good comin’

Just over the hill

Somethin’ good comin’

I know it will

And I’m in for the long run

Wherever it goes

Ridin’ the river

Wherever it goes

And I’m an honest man

Work’s all I know

You take that away

Don’t know where to go

And I know that look that’s on your face

There’s somethin’ lucky about this place

There’s somethin’ good comin’

For you and me

Somethin’ good comin’

There has to be

The Heartbreakers A Wasted Life

I know you’re walkin’ down a lonely street

I know you can’t get out of the heat

Baby it’s alright

Don’t have a wasted life

I know you have to feel a little used up

And no one can give you enough

Baby hold on tight

Don’t have a wasted life

I love you too much

Don’t have a wasted life

I love you too much

They give it to you from the time you’re born

You keep tryin’ to make one more score

Baby it’s alright

You gotta stand and fight

So when you’re lonely and you feel let down

You can call me I’ll come around

And treat you nice

Don’t have a wasted life

I love you too much – uh, uh, uh, don’t have a wasted life

The Heartbreakers U Get Me High

I remember feeling like this

Diggin’ was as a child

Inspiration in my fingertips

Imagination running wild

Ohhh ohhh, you get me high

You get me high

You give me something so deep

You get me high

I remember feeling this way

You can lose it without knowing

You wake up and you don’t know which way

The wind is blowing

Ohhh ohhh, you get me high

You get me high

You give me something so deep

You get me high

I ain’t afraid of what people say

Ain’t afraid of the great deception

Every bad dream comes my way

Trying to smoke on closer inspection

Ohhh ohhh, you get me high

You get me high

You give me something so deep

You get me high

You get me high

You get me high

You give me something so deep

You get me high
