Your mind's set on leavin'
To a house down a one way street
Say you're gonna lock up all the doors
And throw away the key

Oh, but don't burn down the bridge, darlin'
You just might wanna come back
'Cause the grass ain't no greener
On the other side of the track

Oh, you counted me out, before I could get to bat
All the things are out-ta the Chevrolet
Tomorrow night be drivin' a Cadillac

But don't burn down the bridge, darlin'
You just might wanna come back


'Cause the grass ain't no greener
On the other side of the track

Hey!

All your so called friends
Taught you how to cheat an' lie
Now it seem like you gonna jump
From the fryin' pan to the fire

Oh, but don't burn down your bridge, darlin'
You just might wanna come back
'Cause the grass ain't no greener
On the other side of the track

. . .


One of these days an' it won't be long, yeah
You gonna look for me an' I'll be gone

I believe, I say I believe right now
Hey, hey, hey, baby
You tryin' to make a fool of me, now

You goin' 'round here with your head so hard, yeah
I think I'm gonna have to use my rod

I believe, I say I believe right now
Hey, hey, hey, baby
You tryin' to make a fool of me, now

Now last night you were dreamin' when I heard you say, yeah
"Ho Johnny", when you know my name is Ray


I believe, I say I believe right now, yeah
Woah-oh-oh, baby
You're tryin' to make a fool of me, now

Oh!

You're gonna 'round here with your head so hard, yeah
I think I'm gonna have to use my rod

I believe, I say I believe right now, yeah
Hey, hey, hey baby
You're tryin' to make a fool of me now, hey

Yeah!

. . .


For the love of a woman
A man will do most anything
For a love of a woman
A man will do most anything
Make him steal from his mother
Just to buy her a diamond ring

Well I love you, baby
Like a schoolboy love his pie
Well I love you, baby
Like a schoolboy love his pie


Well I love you so much, darlin'
You make me wanna cheat an' lie

I've been lovin' you, baby
Ever since I don't know when
I've been lovin' you, baby
Ever since I don't know when
Oh, I love ya so much, darlin', yeah
That I'm comin' right back again
Come on!

. . .


We're gonna take ya way back, ha ha
I said we're gonna take ya way back [Yeah!]
Ha, ha
(Let's start!)
When the sunrise in the east, lover
It set deeply in the west
(Spoken:
Oh, turn my organ down a-lil' bit so I can croon a lil' bit on ya)
Oh, the sunrise in the east
It set deeply in the west
I've been lookin' for my lover
An' I haven't found her yet
I'm gonna call up China
An' see if my woman's over there
Well, I'm gonna call up China
An' see if my woman's over there
You know, I've searched the whole world over, Lord
I can't find my lover, nowhere (hey-ya)
She won't write me no letter
She won't even call me on the telephone
No, she won't write me no letter


She won't even call me on the telephone
You know I haven't had no real good lovin'
Since that gal-a mine been gone
(Spoken:
I can't see my, engineer
Hey, somebody! (hey, hey)
Where's Mister ...
Well, Ooh!)
Someday baby, hahahaha
You're gonna want me, like I want you
Oh, someday baby, you're gonna want me, like I want you
But when you call me long distance, darlin'
I'll say I have nothing for you to do
Someday baby, you're gonna want me, like I want you
Hey, someday baby, you're gonna want me, like I want you
Oh, but when ya call me on the phone, angel
I'll say I have nothin' for you to do
Woo, thank you!

. . .


If you're down and out and you feel real hurt
Come on over to the place where I live
And all your loneliness I'll try to soothe
I'll play the blues for you

Don't be afraid come on in
You might run across some of your old friends


All your loneliness I gotta soothe
I'll play the blues for you

I got no big name and I ain't no big star
I play the blues for you on my guitar
All your loneliness I'll try to soothe
I 'll play the blues for you

. . .

If I hadn't looked further
You wouldn't have made it

Take it on, little brother, take it further

Take it on, little brother, take it further, yeah, um!
