“Crash Course In the Blues” Lyrics

To a boy from Indiana
I’m fresh off of the farm
L.A. looks like heaven
With ever open arms

My mama said, “Son, watch yourself”
Like mamas always do
My daddy said, “Those city girls
Will walk all over you”

So I hit the pavement runnin’
Hollywood and Vine
Got to town at seven
Yeah, I fell in love at nine

She was a California angel
With alligator shoes
She had that certain somethin’
That a poor boy can’t refuse

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues

Now we’re screamin’ down the freeway
In a fancy foreign car
And we hit all the parties
I never seen so many stars

Just when I’m about to make my move
And ask her to be mine
She hauls up with somebody else
And kisses me goodbye

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues

[break]

She was just too hot to handle
For a country boy like me
She’s still a roman candle
Burnin’ in my memory

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues
She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues
She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues

“You Do What You Did” Lyrics

You do what you did
She called you, but you hid
And now it’s you, kid
That’s callin’ for help

You do what you can
It’s only you, man
To hold your own hand
While you’re on the shelf

You made your case
You did your best
You shot your shot
And you failed the test

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

Lots of folks
Blow their stack
Some go down
But some bounce back

Yeah, and nobody’s always wrong
And nobody’s always right
And somebody’s always hurt
And somebody sees the light

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

And like a rose
No fighting knows
If love comes and goes
Or it’s gone for good

Like in a dream
You just do what you seem to
You do what you can
You can’t do what you should

It’s not your day
To overcome
But still in all
You can have some fun

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

[break]

You do what you did
She called you, but you hid
And now it’s you, kid
That’s callin’ for help

You do what you can
It’s only you, man
To hold your own hand
While you’re on the shelf

You made your case
You did your best
You shot your shot
And you failed the test

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

Forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

“Step By Step” Lyrics

Step by step
All the happy saints go marchin’ in
And every saint step in a line
They got to start again
’Cause Jacob’s golden ladder
Is slippery at the top
Many a happy-go-lucky saint
Has made that long, long drop

If I’m late, don’t wait
Go on without me
I may tarry a while
’Cause I mean to know
And before I go
How come the devil smiles

If I’m late, don’t wait
Go on without me
I may tarry a while
’Cause I mean to know
Before I go
How come the devil smiles

[break]

Free from care
Free from fear
The saints come troopin’ in
Children play all around the throne
Innocent of sin
A trillion voices sing the name
The mortal may not know
Heaven’s walls too high to hear
The troubles down below

If I’m late, don’t wait
Go on without me
I may tarry a while
’Cause I mean to know
But before I go
How come the devil smiles
’Cause I mean to know
Before I go
How come the devil smiles
How come the devil smiles

“She Hangs Out” Lyrics

Do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out
She hangs out

How old you say your sister was? (Sister was, sister was)
How old you say your sister was? (Sister was, sister was)
You know you better keep an eye on her (Eye on her, eye on her)

Do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out
She hangs out

I heard you taught your sister the boogaloo (Boogaloo, boogaloo)
I heard you taught your sister the shing-a-ling too (Shing-a-ling too, shing-a-ling too)
Well, she can teach you a thing or two (Thing or two, thing or two)
Wow!

Do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out
She hangs out

Well, she hangs out, hangs out
Every night, every night
You best get down here on the double
Before she gets her pretty little ass in trouble
She’s (Doo doo-doo doo-doo) so fine
She’s (Doo doo-doo doo-doo) so fine

[break]

Do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out
She hangs out

How old you say your sister was? (Sister was, sister was)
How old you say your sister was? (Sister was, sister was)
You know you better keep an eye on her (Eye on her, eye on her)

Ah, do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out
She hangs out
She hangs out
She hangs out

Oh, do the ronde-ronde
Do the rond-rond
She hangs out

“Blue Light Boogie” Lyrics

They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

I went to a party
With the bobby socks
At the party
I really got a shock

They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

I started swingin’
All she did was rock
Kept on swingin’
She said “Now, listen, pop”

I like to boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
I like to boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

I looked around
The shades were down
The chicks was in the groove
I didn’t see how those cats could dance
When their feet didn’t even move

[break]

At the party
We really had a time
At the party
I almost lost my mind

I couldn’t boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
I couldn’t boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

The girls and boys
Made so much noise
They even had a rave
The only thing those cops could find
Was ice cream and lemonade

Oh, what a party
I should have stayed at home
At the party
I was like a chaperone

I couldn’t boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low
They did the boogie real slow
With the blue lights way down low

“I Still Believe In The Blues” Lyrics

I can’t believe how hard it is
Tryin’ to get by
I can’t believe the cost of livin’
Is headed for the sky
I can’t believe the way some people
Do the way they do
But I still believe in the blues

Some people do whatever it takes
To get them through the night
They want so bad to make it
They can’t do nothin’ right
And when I’m weary and I’m all alone
And all I hear’s bad news
I still believe in the blues

You could say that a vagabond
Got no business preachin’ to the man who’s got a home
But still he’s always got to find himself
A way to carry on

People, let me tell you
There’s times when I’ve had enough
But there’s something in the music
That always fills me up
When all I see is trouble
And all I do is lose
I still believe in the blues

[break]

Whoa, people, let me tell you
There’s times when I’ve had enough
But there’s something in that music
Always fills me up
When all I see is trouble
And all I do is lose
Oh, I still believe
Oh, I still believe
Oh, I still believe in the blues

“Hoochie Coochie Man” Lyrics

Gypsy woman told my mother
Before I was born
You got a boy child’s comin’
Gonna be a son of a gun
Make pretty women
Run, jump, and shout
And the world won’t know
What it’s all about

’Cause I’m here
Everybody knows I’m here
I’m your hoochie coochie man
The whole round world knows I am

On the seventh hour
Of the seventh day
Of the seventh month
Seven doctors say
He was born with good luck
And as you’ll see
I got seven hundred dollars, baby
Don’t you mess with me

’Cause I’m here
Mm, everybody knows I’m here
I’m your hoochie coochie man
The whole round world knows I’m here

“Ooh. Play the guitar.”

[break]

I got a black cat bone
And a mojo too
John the conqueror root
Gonna mess with you
Make you pretty woman
Lead me by the hand
Then the world’ll know
I’m your hoochie coochie man

’Cause I’m here
Mm, everybody knows I’m here
I’m your hoochie coochie man
The whole round world knows I am
I’m your hoochie coochie man
The whole round world knows I am

(Sally go ’round the roses) Sally go ’round the roses
(Sally go ’round the roses) Sally go ’round the pretty roses
(Roses, they can’t hurt you) The roses, they can’t hurt you
(Roses, they can’t hurt you) No, the roses, they can’t hurt you

Sally don’t you go
Don’t you go downtown
Sally don’t you go
Don’t you go downtown
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to see your baby with another girl

Let your hair hang down
Ah, Sally, baby, cry
Let your hair hang down
Sit ’n’ cry where the roses grow
Sit ’n’ cry, not a soul will know

“Your Molecular Structure” Lyrics

Your molecular structure
Is really somethin’ fine
A first-rate example of functional design
Those cosmic undulations are steady comin’ through
Your molecular structure, baby
Me and you

Your cellular organization
Is really somethin’ choice
Electro-magnetism bound to make me lose my voice
Got all my circuits open, my systems read “go”
Your cellular organization, baby
Start the show

[break]

Your molecular structure
Is really somethin’ swell
A high-frequency modulated Jezebel
Thermodynamically, you’re gettin’ to me
Your molecular structure, baby
Ooh-wee!

“Early Morning Blues & Greens” Lyrics

A distant nightbird mocks the sun
I wake as I have always done
To freshly scented sycamore
And cold bare feet on hardwood floor

My steaming coffee warms my face
I’m disappointed in the taste
But there’s a peace the early brings
The morning world of growing things

I feel the moments hurry on
It was today, it’s died away
And now it is forever gone

And I will drink my coffee slow
And I will watch my shadow grow
And disappear in firelight
And sleep alone again tonight

[break]

I feel the moments hurry on
It was today, it’s died away
And now it is forever gone

And I will drink my coffee slow
And I will watch my shadow grow
And disappear in firelight
And sleep alone again tonight
And dream

“Don’t Let Go” Lyrics

Hear that whistle? It’s ten o’clock (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Come on, baby, it’s time to rock (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
I’m so happy to have you here (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Keeps me grinnin’ from ear to ear (Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Ooh-wee, mm, this feelin’s killin’ me
Aw shucks, I won’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so, just hold me tight and don’t let go

Thunder, lightning, wind, and rain (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Love is poundin’ inside my brain (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
I’m so eager, I’m nearly dyin’ (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
You’ve been keepin’ your lips from mine (Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Ooh-wee, mm, this feelin’s killin’ me
Aw shucks, I won’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so, just hold me tight and don’t let go

A hound dog barkin’ upside the hill (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Love is draggin’ him through the mill (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
If it wasn’t for a-havin’ you (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Now, I’d be barkin’ and a-hollerin’ too (Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Ooh-wee, mm, this feelin’s killin’ me
Aw shucks, I won’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so, just hold me tight and don’t let go

[break]

Ooh-wee, mm, this feelin’s killin’ me
Aw shucks, I won’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so, just hold me tight and don’t let go

One day, baby, you’ll quit me, yeah (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
I’ll be cryin’ and soakin’ wet, heh (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
One thing, baby, I’ll never stand (Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Your lips kiss some other man (Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Ooh-wee, mm, this feelin’s killin’ me
Aw shucks, I won’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so, just hold me tight and don’t let go
Hold me tight and don’t let go
Hold me tight and don’t let go
Hold me tight and don’t let go

“Glory To The Name Of The Lord” Lyrics

Lately, I’ve been noticing
Lot of people go to sing
Glory to the name, glory to the name of the lord

Lately, I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout
Some of my friends been cuttin’ out
Goin’ home, goin’ home to the lord

She O.D.’ed and she died
I used to lay by her side
Was it suicide?
Now she’s gone

The questions on my mind
No answers can I find
Maybe that’s okay
We’re not supposed to find out anyway
Glory to the name, glory to the name of the lord

His name, it was DeWildt
He ran his van into a tree and got killed
Was that what he willed?
Now he’s gone, gone, gone, gone
Glory to the name, glory to the name of the lord

He played great in the band
Overplayed his hand
Was that what he planned?
Now he’s gone

He couldn’t catch his breath
His heart beat him to death
Or the other way around
Work too hard for love, and it just might bring you down
Glory to the name, glory to the name of the lord

Lately, I’ve been noticing
Lot of people go to sing
Glory to the name, glory to the name of the lord

Lately, I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout
Some of my friends been cuttin’ out
Goin’ home, goin’ home to the
Goin’ home, goin’ home to the
Goin’ home, goin’ home to the lord
