“I Know Love” Lyrics

Well, I know love when it don’t do good
I know love when it does what it should
I know love ’cause you know I’ve had
My share of lovin’, both the good and bad

I know love, and it do what it wants to do
I know love when it hits me
And-a, honey love, so do you

Well, I know when it’s tried and it’s true
I know love when it’s black and it’s blue
I know love ’cause you know I’ve had
My share of lovin’, both the good and bad

I know love, and it do what it wants to do
I know love when it hit me
And-a, honey love, so do you
Woo!

[break]

Well, I know love when it don’t do good
I know love when it does what it should
I know love ’cause you know I’ve had
My share of lovin’, both the good and bad

I know love, and it do what it wants to do
I know love when it hits me
And-a, honey love, so do you
Woo!

[break]

Mm, I know love, and it do what it wants to do
I know love when it hits me
And-a, honey love, so do you

I know love
I know love, hoo
I know love
I know love, hoo
I know love, I know love
I know love, I know love
I know love

“One More Heartache” Lyrics

One more heartache
I can’t take it
My heart is carryin’ such a heavy load
One more ache would break it

Like a camel, they say, with a, a heavy pack
A-one last straw, they say it was broke that camel’s back

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it
I can’t take it

One more heartache
Turn me right around
First, you build my hopes up high
Then you tear me down

Like a house of matchsticks on a, a kitchen table
A-one last matchstick broke it down, the foundation was not able

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it
I can’t take it

[break]

(I, I, I, I)

One more heartache
Just be too much load
I’m fed up with the heartache
One more, and I’ll explode

Like a toy balloon that’s filled up with as much as it can take
A-one last drop of air, and that balloon is bound to break

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it


“Bound To Lose” Lyrics

Sailing down the river
To New Orleans
To New Orleans
Bet my money by the gamblin’ rules

Goin’ from-a town
Town to town
Town to town
Come and lay your dollar down

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Here comes Suzie
With her hair piled high
With her hair piled high (Real, real high)
Sister Sue keep a-watchin’ her eye

Hookers and hustlers
Follow her ’round
Follow her down
Come and lay your dollar down

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Wheelin’ and a-dealin’
’Round she goes
’Round she goes
Where she stops, nobody knows

Listen good people
If you want the news
If you want the news
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

[break]

Rouge on faces
Fancy clothes
Those fancy clothes
Money comes, and money goes

Moon and stars
Sometimes I feel
Sometimes I feel
He’s not, she’s not, is not real

Is not real (Is not real)
Is not real
Is not real
He’s not, she’s not, is not real

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

“Last Train To Clarksville” Lyrics

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

’Cause I’m leavin’ in the mornin’
And I must see you again
We’ll have one more night together
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home

Take the last train to Clarksville
I’ll be waitin’ at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation, whoa
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

Di-di-di…

Take the last train to Clarksville
Now I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home

Take the last train to Clarksville
Take the last train to Clarksville
Take the last train to Clarksville (Take the last train to Clarksville)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Take the last train to Clarksville)
Take the last train, the last train, the last train, the last train
Last train, last train, last train, last train, last train

“The Mighty Are Falling” Lyrics

There’s a whole family livin’ on welfare
But they still believe in the power of prayer

A-look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

The preacher said the streets are paved with gold
It takes all of your money just to say so

A-standin’ there in your Sunday best
It’s just an example you set for the rest

Look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

[break]

(The mighty are fallin’ every day)
(The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)

Look at how the mighty have come down low, the mighty are fallin’
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

You been caught with your hands in the jar
You know love don’t take no MasterCard

Look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

Look at how the mighty have come down low, the mighty are fallin’
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

You wanna get down on your knees and pray
You’ve got the eye of the needle on judgement day

The mighty are fallin’
The mighty are fallin’
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’


“Ain’t Your Fault” Lyrics

It ain’t your fault, babe
Go ahead and do what you’ve gotta do

Ain’t your fault, babe
That you don’t love me like I love you
Ain’t your fault, baby
That I’m so blue

Know you don’t like it much
You say it’s a crying shame
But you didn’t do anything wrong, my baby
Nobody’s to blame

Ain’t your fault, babe
That you don’t love me like I love you
It ain’t your fault, baby
That I’m so blue

I know you don’t wanna hurt me
You’d even take it on yourself
But you don’t do anyone any good
Puttin’ your own life on the shelf

It ain’t your fault, babe
That you don’t love me like I love you
It ain’t your fault, baby
That I’m so blue

[break]

Ain’t your fault, babe
Go ahead and do what you got to do
It ain’t your fault, baby
That you don’t love me like I love you
It ain’t your fault, baby
That I’m so blue
That I’m so blue
That I’m so blue
I’m so blue

“Annie Had A Baby” Lyrics

Well, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Yeah, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

She got to walk with the baby
Instead of me, she got to talk to the baby
Instead of me, she got to sing to the baby
Instead of me, she got to cling to the baby
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good

Hey, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Yeah, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

[break]

She got to (Walk with the baby)
Instead of me, she got to (Talk to the baby)
Instead of me (Sing to the baby)
Instead of me (Cling to the baby)
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good

Hey, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Hey, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

She got to walk with the baby
Instead of me, she got to talk to the baby
Instead of me, she got to sing to the baby
Instead of me, she got to cling to the baby
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good, yeah

“God Given Grant” Lyrics

Me and Lemon Ricky was down at the dinghy
We was singin’ and carryin’ on
Later, me and Lemon Ricky turned on the TV
To see if we can get the blues on

Just then, Lemon Ricky grabbed a soulful sister
And he raised his soulful voice in song

It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right to be wrong
It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right to be wrong

Me and Mr. Clean was workin’ some kind of machine
We was makin’ our livin’ that way
Later, Mr. Clean and I would get a little high
Just to see what we both had to say

Just then, Mr. Clean would seem to ask me
If I thought his life was okay, and I said

It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right to be wrong
It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right to be wrong

[break]

Me and Mrs. Pudy used to try to get through
To each other with guns and a-knives
But the flood comes after fire, now, lately, we’d get tired
Of livin’ these ??? lives

So if we get loose, you know, we might call a truce
If we can get outside this world of wives (’Til then!)

It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right to be wrong
It’s a God given grant to make a fool of yourself
It’s a God given right
I said it’s a God given right
It’s a, a God given right to be wrong, hey, yeah

“For Pete’s Sake” Lyrics

Love is understanding
Don’t you know that this is true?
Love is understanding
It’s in everything we do

In this generation (In this generation)
In this lovin’ time (This lovin’ time)
In this generation
We will make the world shine

We were born to love one another
This is something we all need
We were born to love one another
We must be what we’re going to be
And what we have to be is free

In this generation (In this generation)
In this lovin’ time (This lovin’ time)
In this generation
We will make the world shine

We were born to love one another
This is something we all need
We were born to love one another
We must be what we’re going to be
And what we have to be is free

We were born to love one another
This is something we all need
We were born to love one another
We must be what we’re going to be
And what we have to be is free

“Good Looker” Lyrics

She jumped on a wagon after our song hit the charts in thirteen cities
She was a real good looker, but she never looked my way, yeah
She sat on the stage everywhere we went while we played the boogie woogie
She had a heart of gold but-a not a lot to say

Then one night, behind the club, you know, she told me that she loved me
Well, I thought it over, and I told her that I felt the same, yeah
We bought a house with a fenced in yard in the north side of the canyon
And we spent that winter listenin’ to the rain

Summer’s here, and our sales went down; the easy, the easy, the easy, the easy, the easy day was over
They took my house and my big black car away, yeah
Back on the road, we took the band, we got to go do the whole thing over
And my good looker was-a lookin’ the other way

[break]

Now she’s gone, and I wrote this song, and I took it to the radio station
And it looks like it’s a hit in every way, yeah, yeah, yeah
Town to town, coast to coast, one more time, we’re the nation’s sensation
And-a no good looker’s gonna steal my heart away
Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away

“She Belongs To Me” Lyrics

She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back
She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back
She can take the dark out of the night time and make the day time black

She never stumbles, she’s got no place to fall
She never stumbles, she’s got no place to fall
She’s nobody’s child; the law can’t touch her at all

She wears an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks
She got an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks
She’s a hypnotist collector; you are a walking antique

Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween, buy her a trumpet
And for Christmas, give her a drum

You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
You will wind up peekin’ through a keyhole down upon your knees

[break]

She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back
She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back
She can take the dark out of the night time and make the day time black
She can take the dark out of the night time and make the day time black
She can take the dark out of the night time and make the day time black

“Sea Cruise” Lyrics

Old man rhythm’s got a hold on my shoes
No use sittin’ here and singin’ the blues

Be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin’, baby, won’t you join me please?
I don’t like beggin’, but I’m on bended knees

Got to get a-movin’, get my hat off the rack
Got to boogie woogie like a knife in the back

Be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin’, baby, won’t you join me please?
I don’t like beggin’, but I’m on bended knees

Got to get a-movin’, baby, I ain’t lyin’
My heart is beatin’ rhythm, and it’s right on time

Be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?

[break]

Old man rhythm’s got a hold on my shoes
No use sittin’ here and singin’ the blues

Be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Won’t you let me take you on a sea cruise?
