Leon Russell – Tight Rope

I’m up on the tightrope , one sides hate and one is hope
It’s a circus game with you and me.
I’m up on the tightwire , linked by life and the funeral pyre
But the tophat on my head is all you see.

And the wire seems to be the only place for me
A comedy of errors and I’m falling
Like a rubber neck giraffe, you look into my past
Well, baby you’re just too blind to see.

I’m up in the spotlight, oh does it feel right
The altitude seems to really get to me.
I’m up on the tightwire linked by life and the funeral pyre
Putting on a show for you to see.

Leon Russell – A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall

Tell me, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Where have you been, my darling young one?

I’ve stumbled up on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled over six crooked highways
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans

And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, well it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

Tell me, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
What did you see, my darling young one?

I saw a black branch drippin’, with blood all around it
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken

And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, oh yeah
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

Tell me what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
What did you hear, my darling young one?

I heard a one hundred drummers hands were a-blazin’
Ten thousand whisperin’ and nobody listenin’
I heard a one person starve, I heard many people laughin’
I heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter

And It’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, oh hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

Well, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
What’ll you do now, my darling young one?

Well, I’ll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
But I know my song well and I sure won’t forget it

‘Cause it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, well it’s a hard, oh yeah
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

Leon Russell – Out In The Woods

Well I’m goin’ down, Goin down a hard road Just don’t know, Don’t know where I’ve been A But I think I’ve been walkin’, I’m walkin’ round in circles Can’t even find a friend
Woah… my love, My love she is not waiting Think I might’ve been gone, I’ve been gone too long Look at the people, People make me crazy
I can hardly sing my song
Hustlers stand around me, I’m lost and all alone
Can’t tell the bad from the good
I’m lost in the woods, I’m lost in the woods
Big city gamblers, Gamblers take my money
Yes it gets to be useless, Yes it’s useless to me
And I think I’m lost, When I’m lost inside this Jungle
Can’t see the forest for the trees
Well pretty little, Woman come and get me Try me, Try me one more time
Yes and your sweet, Your sweet understanding
Can’t fix this broken heart of mine
The vultures fly around me, Come and take me home
Can’t tell the bad from the good
I’m out in the woods, I’m lost in the woods…. I’m a man gone crazy in the woods. I’m wondering around in the bush.

Leon Russell – Delta Lady

Woman of the country
Now, I found you
Longing in your soft
And fertile delta
And I whisper sighs
To satisfy your longing
For the warm and tender
Shelter of my body
Oh, you’re mine delta lady
Your mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Please don’t ask
How many times I found you
Standing wet
And naked in the garden
And I think of the days
And the different ways I held you
I held you closely to me
Yes, our heart was beating
Oh, you’re mine delta lady
You’re mine, be all mine
Delta lady
When I’m home again in England
And I’m thinking of you love
Because, I love you
Yes, I do, I love you
There are concrete
Mountains in the city
And pretty city women
Live inside them
And yet it seems
The city scene is lacking
I’m so glad you’re waiting
For me in the country
Oh, you’re mine delta lady
Darling, you’re mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Oh, you’re mine delta lady
Darling, you’re mine, be all mine
Delta lady

Leon Russell – Magic Mirror

I’m standing by the highway
Suitcase by my side
There’s no place I want to go
I just thought I’d catch a ride

Many people look my way
And many pass me by
In moments of reflection
I wonder why

To the thieves I am a bandit
The mothers think I’m a son
To the preachers I’m a sinner
Lord I’m not the only one

To the sad ones I’m unhappy
To the losers I’m a fool
To the students I’m a teacher
With the teachers I’m in school

To the hobos I’m imprisoned by everything I own
To the soldier I’m just someone else who’s dying to go home
The general sees a number, a politician’s tool
To my friends I’m just an equal in this whirlpool

Magic mirror won’t you tell me please
Do I find myself in anyone I see?
Magic mirror if we only could
Try to see ourselves as others would

To policeman I’m suspicious it’s in the way I look
I’m just another character to fingerprint and book
To the censors I’m pornography with no redeeming grace
To the hooker I’m a customer without a face

The sellers think I’m merchandise, they’ll have me for a song
The left ones think I’m right,
The right ones think I’m wrong
And many people look my way
And many pass me by
And in my quiet reflection I wonder why

Magic mirror won’t you tell me please
Do I see myself in anyone I meet?
Magic mirror if we only could
Try to see ourselves as others would

Leon Russell – Hummingbird

Sometimes I get impatient
But she cools me without words
And she comes so sweet and softly
My hummingbird and have you heard
That I thought my life had ended
But I find that it’s just begun
Cause she gets me where I live
I’ll give all I have to give
I’m talking about that hummingbird
Oh she’s little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She’s little and she loves me
To my lucky day
Hummingbird don’t fly away (woah yeah)
When I’m feeling wild and lonesome
She knows the words to say
And she gives me understanding
In her special way
And I have to say
In my life I’ll love no other
Because she’s more than I deserve
And she gets me where I live
I’ll give her everything i have to give
I’m talking about that hummingbird
Oh she’s little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She’s little and she loves me
To my lucky day
Hummingbird don’t fly away
Don’t fly away
Don’t fly away
Don’t fly away
Don’t fly away

Leon Russell – My Cricket (Live)

I was just thinking about you today
And the evening we slept in the mountains
But I cannot get through to you, find words to say to you
Darling you’re so far away.

Oh no I’m not crying these ain’t tears in my eyes
I’m so happy I’m dying with laughter

If you’d only come over, I’m sure that you’d see,
We’re not lonesome, my cricket and me.

Your picture reminds me I wanted to be free
I hurt you I drove you away
If you’d just come back over I’m sure that you’d see
We’re not lonesome, my cricket and me

Leon Russell & Friends – Come On Into My Kitchen (Live)

You better come on in my kitchen
It’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
When a woman gets in trouble
Everybody throws her down
Lookin’ for your good friend
None can be found
You better come on in my kitchen
It’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
The woman I love, took from my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her back again
She better come on in my kitchen
Baby, it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
Mama, can’t you hear that wind howl?
Oh how the wind do howl
You better come on in my kitchen
Baby, it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
The woman that I love, I crave to see
She’s up the country, won’t write to me
Then, you better come on in my kitchen
Goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
I went to the mountain, far as my eyes could see
Some other man got my woman,
Lonesome blues got me
But she better come on in my kitchen
‘Cause it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
My Mama dead, Papa well’s to be
Ain’t got nobody to love and care for me
She better come on in this kitchen
‘Cause it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

Leon Russell & Friends – Big Boss Man (Live)

Big Boss Man
Can’t you hear me when I call?
Big Boss Man
Can’t you hear me when I call?

Well, you ain’t so big
A-you just tall, that’s all

You got me workin’, Boss Man
Workin’ around the clock
I wanna little drink of water
But you won’t let me stop

Big Boss Man
Can’t you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain’t so big
You just tall, that’s all

You got me workin’, Boss Man
One that I can’t see
Work hard in the daytime
Rest easy in the night

Big Boss Man
Can’t you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain’t so big
Oh no, you just tall, that’s all

Leon Russell – Dixie Lullaby

Gather round me people, got a song to sing
About that sweet magnolia thyme
The black eyed Susan made some catfish stew
And papa brought some homemade wine

Now, all the southern children like to rock ‘n’ roll
The TV mamas tell you why
They got it on the boat from Africa
It’s that Dixie lullaby

And blind Willie Time, he had a dime shoe shine
Stand down on Beale Street
And Willie would stop and say "Hello"
To all the shoes he’d meet

"Why are you so happy?" said the clean white buck
"You got no reason to be happy Mr. Time"
But Willie just smiled and he dropped his rag
And sang a Dixie lullaby

Now you heard the story of my southern home
With a honeysuckle wine
Anytime you think that you might come yourself
You ought to keep this thought in mind

All you easy riders better watch your step
If you’re walkin’ down below the line
That Louisiana man is gonna get you, yet
With his Dixie lullaby

He’s got a Dixie lullaby
Ohh, it’s a Dixie lullaby, bye

Leon Russell – Goodnight Irene

Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife have parted
I’m gonna take a little stroll downtown

Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Some times I live in the country
Some times I live in town
Some times I take a great notion
To jump in the river and drown

Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Quit your rambling quit your gambling
Stop staying out late at night
Stay home with your wife and family
And stay by the fireside of right

Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams
Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I’ll see you in my dreams

Leon Russell – Roll Away The Stone

Well it’s such a strange world that I’m living in
She was my woman and she was my friend
But I was wrong again

Such a strange changes that you put me through
But like a fool I’m still in love with you
What can this poor boy do?

Roll away the stone
Don’t leave me here alone
Resurrect me and protect me
Don’t leave me laying here
What will they do in two thousand years? Yeah

It’s such a strange time that we’re passing through
I thought you’d tell me when your time was due
I guess you thought I knew

Strange way to keep avoiding me
Why did you lie how could I help but be
Oh won’t you help me be?

Roll away the stone
Don’t leave me here alone
Resurrect me and protect me
Don’t leave me laying here
What will they do in two thousand years?

Roll away the stone
Don’t leave me here alone
Roll away, roll away the stone
Roll away the stone
Roll away, roll away, roll away the stone
Roll away the stone
Roll away, roll away the stone
Roll away the stone

Leon Russell & Mary Russell – Fantasy (In Houston, TX) (Live)

You and me and fantasy
Acting in a play that we design
Is it too good to be true
That I would be the one to love you

You and me and fantasy
Spending nights of love a life away
And we hum like bees in the morning
In our own way

*And we’re livin’ in a movie
Shinin’ like a light
Poppin’ like popcorn
Feelin’ just right
Dancin’ like indians
Singin’ like a bird
Sounds like a fantasy

Sea of silent fantasy
Love like ocean waves float over me
As we walk along the shore
Darlin’ I fantasize I love you even more

Life stretches out before me
In a sorcerer’s prohesis
‘Cause the hero looks a lot like you
And his lover looks a lot like me

(*repeat)

Fantasy, for you and me
(repeat and fade)

Leon Russell – Queen Of The Roller Derby

I’m up in Oakland on a Saturday night
Lord, I said I just didn’t feel right
Goodnight, ladies all around
But the right one hadn’t found me such a bad night
I didn’t feel right

Then a friend came over ‘fore it got too late
Asked me if I’d like you as a double date
My stars above, I fell in love

With the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
Yeah, the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)

Now Queenie’s a lady, she’s quite a child
Oh, she’ll make you feel fine
Remember the time when a trucker from Dallas
Was callous to Queenie with his rude side

Now he can’t deny, that he gotten much more, than balled before
Queenie’s right across, running to the floor
Now he knows better than to mate

With the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
The queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)

Oh, as fast as a bullet, she can jam all night
Makes a full grown wonder bull die with fright
When we get home, alone in love
She murmurs like a sweet moaning dove, ooh

Oh, such a lady, she’s quite a child
She’ll make me feel good in this heart of mine
She’s my love, she’s a lady

She’s the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
Ah, the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)

I’m talkin’ ’bout the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
Yeah, she’s the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)

Oh, queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
She’s the queen of the roller derby
(Queen of the roller derby)
Ooh

Leon Russell – Roll In My Sweet Baby’s Arms

Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms
I ain’t gonna work on the railroad
(You ain’t gonna work at all if you can help it)
So, I ain’t gonna work on the farm
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms
My mama was a beauty operator
Sister could sew and could mend
My daddy owned an interest in that old sorghum mill
Just-a watchin’ all that money roll in
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
Rollin’ in my sweet baby’s arms
I’ll lay around this shack
‘Til the mail train comes back
An’ I’ll roll in my sweet baby’s arms

Leon Russell – Back To The Island

Now the day is gone and I sit alone and think of you, girl
What can I do without you in my life?
I guess that our guessing game just had to end that way
The hardest one to lose of all the games we played

But the time is past for living in a dream world
Lying to myself can’t make that scene
Of wondering if you love me or just making a fool of me
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I’ll be thinking of you (yes, and I’ll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Well all the fun has died, It’s raining in my heart
I know down in my soul I’m really gonna miss you
But it had to end this way with all the games we played
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I’ll be thinking of you (yes, and I’ll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I’ll be thinking of you (yes, and I’ll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Leon Russell – Bluebird

Yeah, I’m lost in the night
The icy wind is howling out your name
And desolation lingers like a fog
The fire is growing dimmer in the wind

I’m out in the rain
The moon has gone behind the cloud again
And I can’t stand to live another day
‘Cause my bluebird went away

And I’m locked in this room with my sorrow
No escape, no way to get away
And my only connection with tomorrow
Is hoping that you might decide not to stay away

I’m out on a limb
If I could only find sweet love again
To live my life this way is too much to bare
Can’t find my bluebird anywhere, anywhere

I’m lost in the night
The icy wind is howling out your name
And desolation lingers like a fog
The fire is growing dimmer with the wind

I’m out in the rain
The moon has gone behind the cloud again
I can’t stand to live another day
Bluebird, why did you go away?

Tell me, bluebird, why did you go away?
Little bluebird, why did you go away?
Won’t you tell me?

Leon Russell – She Thinks I Still Care

Just because I asked a friend about her,
Just because I spoke her name somewhere,
Just because I dialed her number by mistake today,
She thinks I still care.

Just because I haunt the same old places,
Where the memory of her lingers everywhere,
Just because I’m not the happy guy I used to be,
She thinks I still care.

Oh if she’s happy thinkin’ I still need her,
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer,
Oh how could she ever be so foolish,
And where would she get such an idea?

Just because I asked a friend about her,
Just because I spoke her name somewhere,
Just because I saw her, then went all to pieces,
She thinks I still care.
She thinks I still care.

Leon Russell – She Smiles Like A River

Well she smiles just like a river
Rolling softly to the sea.
When she blows away my problems
She helps to take, take a little weight off me.

When she’s happy, I’m in heaven.
If she’s down, she’ll never say.
‘Cause she knows I’m treading water.
Guess she feels I’m better off that way.

But when sadness overcomes me; I’m blinded by the night,
She takes my hand and leads me to the light.
And she whispers in the morning; she knows the words to say
To keep me looking forward to the new day.

So I try just to be her lover
And I hope she understands
When I hurt her or make her crazy
That I’m just an ordinary man.

Leon Russell – Stranger In A Strange Land

How many days has it been
Since I was born
How many days until I die
Do I know any ways
That I can make you laugh
Or do I only know how to make you cry

When the baby looks around him
It’s such a sight to see
He shares a simple secret
With the wise man

He’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why
He’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

How many miles will it take
To see the sun
And how many years until it’s done
Kiss my confusion away in the night
Lay by side when the morning comes

And the baby looks around him
And shares his bed of hay
With the burrow in the palace of the king

He’s a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why
He’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

Well, I don’t exactly know
What’s going on in the world today
Don’t know what there is to say
About the way the people are treating
Each other, not like brothers

Leaders take us far away from ecology
With mythology and astrology
Has got some words to say
About the way we live today
Why can’t we learn to love each other
It’s time to turn a new face
To the whole world wide human race

Stop the money chase
Lay back, relax
Get back on the human track
Stop racing toward oblivion
Oh, such a sad, sad state we’re in
And that’s a thing

Do you recognize the bells of truth
When you hear them ring
Won’t you stop and listen
To the children sing
Won’t you come on and sing it children

He’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

Leon Russell – Ballad For A Soldier

When I was just a young boy
I played with sword and gun
and I dreamed of the day that I’d become a soldier.

Kill all of the enemy
My country ’tis of thee
I sing this anthem sadly, won’t you hear me?

I watched the cannon blazing
On the giant silver screen
the swastika was burning and the hero was me.

The general gave the orders
Gladly I obeyed
but the movie faded quickly all at once today.

And now I stand alone with the charges made.
Nowhere to run and not a place to hide.
We’re all little children playing grownup games.
Guess the time has come.
The damage has been done.

Oh, stray dogs that live on a highway walk on three legs.
Learn too slow to get the message.
Just like the Indians in the early days
The battle’s lost and won
Yet it still goes on
It’s just another ballad for a soldier.

I had no understanding
’til I saw my mother cry
When I told how many babies I had killed that night.

A dozen color photographs
inside of a magazine
told the morbid story like a movie screen.

But I was not the hero
I thought myself to be
Movies aren’t much different than reality.

The general was convicted
but to get him off the hook,
the President lied freely for the chance I took.

And we all stand alone when the charge’s made
A sad way to live for a way to die.
We’re sad little children playing grownup games.
Can we burn the guns
before the next time comes?

Oh, stray dogs that live on a highway walk on three legs.
Move too slow to learn the message.
Give up and win, that’s all I have to say.
You haven’t really won
when all your fightin’s done
there’s no more ballads for a soldier.

Leon Russell – If The Shoe Fits

Can you get us in free
My girlfriend and me
We like the songs, but we hate to pay
Can I have your guitar
Can I ride on your car
Can you give me a role to play

Can I have an autograph
Can I sit in your lap
Are you really into witchcraft like they say
Can I follow you home
Can I use your telephone
Can we crash here for just a few day
We’re from Rolling Stone so it’s okay

Oh, What was your name
You’re someone I’ve seen
Has anyone said that you look like James Dean
Can I sit in your lap
Can I give you the clap

Can we rap but don’t have much to say

Can I have your guitar
Can I ride on your car
Can you give me a role to play
Can I follow you home
Can I use your telephone
Can we crash here for just a few days
We’re from Rolling Stone so it’s okay, Ah ha!

Can you do a benefit
Have you got any shit
Have you made your peace with Jesus yet today
Would you like to be a monk
C’mon lets go get drunk
Do you think Paul McCartney is okay
Can we crash here for just a few days
Ah, we’re from Rolling Stone so it’s okay

Leon Russell – One More Love Song

How many days has it been
Since I was born
How many days until I die
Do I know any ways
That I can make you laugh
Or do I only know how to make you cry

Just a stranger in a strange land

How many miles will it take

And how many years until it’s done
Kiss my confusion away in the night

Leon Russell – Manhattan Island Serenade

Sittin’ on a highway in a broken van
Thinkin’ of you again
Guess I have to hitchhike to the station
With every step I see your face
Like a mirror looking back at me
Sayin’ you’re the only one
Making me feel I could survive
I’m so glad to be alive
Nowhere to run and not a guitar to play
Mixed up inside and it’s been raining all day
Since you went away
Manhattan Island Serenade
Sittin’ on a highway in a broken van
Thinkin’ of you again
Guess I have to hitchhike down the highway
With every step I see your face
Like a mirror looking back at me
Sayin’ you’re the only one
Making me feel I could survive
I’m so glad to be alive
Nowhere to run and not a guitar to play
Mixed up inside and it’s been raining all day
Since you went away
Manhattan Island Serenade

Leon Russell – Can’t Get Over Losing You

(Mary:)
Can I hear the other part too?
(Leon:)
Hold on, let me love you
For an hour or so
Tell me what you want to do
Where we go to find it
Cause you love me like a hurricane
And then youre gone with the wind
You treat me every way but good
But youll be sure that Ill be back again
I dont know the answer
Ive prayed about you
I feel so brokenhearted
Cause you aint
You aint here

I can take my little ups and downs and
Fight just like a tiger
When Im caught in a corner
Ive got my back against the wall
I know its all that I can do
To stand and wonder
Why do all those things
That you tell me to?
Whoa-oh, you know
I just cant get over losing you

And the night wind is calling
Out my past history
And its driving me crazy
And the morning sunlight comes
You just dont treat me right
It makes me feel half crazy
Oh, precious Jesus tell me what to do
You know I just cant get over leaving you

And you used to walk down by the ocean
By the hour holding hands and then
Spent our time making love to each other
Trying to build some castles in the sand
Oh I know I got hung up on loves little melody
I love you and you
You just dont seem to love me

I can handle just about any kind of trouble
That might come my way
I can get myself uncovered
When the morning light
Begins to wipe away the day
Oh, precious Jesus whatI gonna do?
I just cant get over losing you

I just cant get overcant get over losing you

Leon Russell – The Battle Of New Orleans

In 1814, we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip’.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a-coming
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more, and they began to running,
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We looked down the river and we see’d the British come
and there musta’ been a hundred of ’em beating on the drum.
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring
We stood beside our cotton bales and didn’t say a thing.

We fired our guns, and the British kept a-coming
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to running,
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Leon Russell – In The Jailhouse Now

I had a friend named Camble, eat, cheat and steal and gamble
And I guess he tried most ever’ thing low down
He was out tomcattin’ one night when he started a great big fight
Then a big policeman came and snapped him down
He’s in the jailhouse now, he’s in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice to quit drinking gin and shootin’ dice
He’s in the jailhouse now
A-yodeleyie, yodeleyie, oh-ohoohdeleyie
A-yodeleyie, odiyodeleyie, e-iyodeleyie
Old Bill broke out one day, I guess he thought he’d get away
But at the railroad station they took him by the arm
The chief said, "I’ve come for you", and Bil said, "Now this won’t do
Because Bill Camble never was my name"
He’s in the jailhouse now, he’s in the jailhouse now
Oh yes, he broke out and all over town the fool walked about
He’s in the jailhouse now
Then I met Bill’s old gal Sadie and she said
"Have you seen my baby?"
And I told her he was down town in the can
Litlle Sadie she started fussin’
She went down to the jailhouse a-cussin’
She says, "I come down here to get my man"
She’s in the jailhouse now, she’s in the jailhouse now
So you can understand why little old Sadie got throwed in the can
She’s in the jailhouse now
I went out last Tuesday, met a sweet little gal named Suzie
I’d say she was the sweetest thing around
She started to callin’ me honey and we began to spent my money
Then we got drunk and thought we owned the town
We’re in the jailhouse now, we’re in the jailhouse now
Next day we wanted to go but that old jailer he said, "No"
We’re in the jailhouse now
A-yodeleyie, yodeleyie, oh-ohohohdeleyie
A-yodeleyie, odiyodeleyie, a-ohiyodeleyie

The Forum – Car lyrics

Any other night I would want to be here
But the weather isn’t right
The air’s not clear
Would I be wrong to say a prayer
And watch my voice disappear into evening air?

I’m trying to catch a break and catch my breath behind the wheel
A moment of escape because the stress has gotten real
And now I’m thrown in gear
Headlights show the avenue
The path is clear and it’s quite a view

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car
I’ll get into my car

Speed like jet planes hovering above the street
All my shit in a bag in the passenger seat
Move it to the back and leave it there
Here in this death cab, I’m screaming Death Cab
On Narrow Stairs

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car
I’ll get into my car

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car

Jontron – Love Is Like Drugs lyrics

Being in love is like being on drugs without the potential brain damage,
Kisses are crack rocks you don’t have to smoke with no life ruining
Baggage,
No life ruining baggage

And when we touch (when they touch),
Oh when we touch (Aaah),
I can feel it get me high, I can feel that dopamine rush.
And when we kiss (when they kiss),
Oh when we kiss (Aaah),
It satisfies my addiction without making me pass out in a pool of my piss.

Being in love is like going flat broke and getting kicked out of college,
She’s like a dealer who’s tryin’ to collect and get all the payment she’s
Promised,
Get all the payment she’s promised

And when she speaks (when she speaks),
Oh when she speaks (Aaah),
I can feel that chemical reaction make me weak,
And when we dance (when they dance),
Oh when we dance (Aaah),
It’s the substance abuse that gives me all the delight without making me
Start a naked bar fight.

When she leaves, I need another fix.
So desperate,
I can only be myself with another hit.
Didn’t know the side effects would be so bad,
Gonna end up in rehab,
That means my room where I’m drowning in a pile of cheeto bags, CHEETO
BAGS!

Being in love is like being on drugs without the potential of dying,
Snuggles are pills that you don’t have to buy,
Unless you’re that type of client.
Unless you’re that type of client.

And when we touch (when they touch),
Oh when we touch (Aaah),
I can feel it get me high but I still can’t get enough,
And when we kiss (when they kiss),
Oh when we kiss (Aaah),
It’s at least as good as a dank-ass joint,
Without making me rob my mom at gunpoint.

Being in love is like being on drugs.
