(Somebody Else Been) Shaking Your Tree 02:29
Well, I'm tryin', yes I'm tryin just to get a line on you

Where you been?
But I'm havin' trouble puttin' a find on you
I'm wearin' thin
Somebody else been shaking your tree.
Supposed to saving all that stuff for me.

You been hidin', yes your're hidin', you been stayin' out on me.
Sneakin' 'round.
Me and you ain't workin' out just like we oughta be.
You've got me down.
Somebody else been shaking your tree.
Supposed to be saving all that stuff for me.

I'm tired of foolin' around with you, and sittin' here alone.
It's on my mind.
I think it's time for me to find a new tree of my own.
It's plantin' time.
Anything you wanna do is cool with me.
I don't care who shakes your tree.

Brown Sugar 05:22
My friends, they all told me,

Man, there's something gonna change your life.
My friends, they all told me,
Man, there's something gonna change your life.
Gotta have that brown sugar.
Man it's just gonna change my life.
Man, I gotta have that brown sugar.
Man, it's just gonna make me feel so right.

There's something make me feel good,
and it's gonna change my life.
There's something make me feel good,
and it's gonna change my life.
I gotta have some of that Brown Sugar,
Gotta try it before I die.

Man it sure do save me
when there's no place left for me.
Man it sure do save me
when there's no place left for me.
Gotta have some of that Brown Sugar
as long as that's gonna set me free.

Man, there's somethin' make me feel good
and it's gonna change my life.
Man, there's somethin' make me feel good

Squank 02:49
Woman, grab your children, run and hide.

Don't let it catch up with you.
You gotta fight it to stay alive,
and if it gets you, man, you're through.

It smells so rotten and rank.
Well, everybody calls it the squank.

It's sick, depressin, gettin' bigger all the time.
Don't help it any way you can.
It's grey and brown and sometimes lime
and it's spreadin' all over the land.

And soon we'll be all breathin' out of tanks
if somethin' ain't done about the squank.

The meanest thing the world's ever bred
by me and you and my kinfold too.
A monster can't live unless it's fed,
and it's being fed by me and you.
And soon it's gonna leave the world blank,
and we'll all be erased by the squank.

Goin' Down To Mexico 03:23
I was on my way down to Mexico,

there was trouble on the rise.
It was nothing more than I'd left behind,
which was much to my surprise.
I turned around and lit a cigarette
wiped the dust off of my boots.
When up ahead I saw the crowd,
I knew it was no use.

I'ts been the same way for Oh so long,
it looks like I'm singing the same old song.

A fine and fancy man was he,
doing good things for the poor.
Givin' rides in his rockin' Eighty-eight for free.
They could not hope for more.
When it came my turn he said to me,
"Have I seen your face before?"
I said, "Oh no, you must be wrong,
I'm from a distant shore.

So if you don't mind, I'll just move along
but it looks like I'm singin' the same old song."

A Nineteen Forty movie star
with a long forgotten name.
She was a sexy mess in her pleated dress,
still hangin' on to fame.
With forgotten lines she missed her cue
and left a glass of wine at home.
She was singin' the same song that I was.
Could we both be wrong?

So hand in hand we walked along,
each of us singin' the same old song.

Old Man 03:32
Old man sleepin' the hot day away,

while he dreams a thousand yesterdays.
'Cause he's had so many come his way.
All he cares about is somewhere to lay his head tomorrow.

Old man sits and thinks about his home.
Doesn't matter 'cause he's all alone.
What he'd give to get back on his own.
Curses his body 'cause it's old and it gives no transportation.
He sits in his one room shack alone but it provides no consolation.

What a shame,
his time is nearin'.
His eyes won't let him see
the skies are clearin'.
Someone tells him
without his hearin'.
It's no news to those who've been around
while things are changin'.
 🠹 

 🠹 
Neighbor, Neighbor 02:19
Neighbor, neighbor, why you messin' in my life?

Neighbor, neighbor, you've been talkin' to my wife,
tellin' her you seen me
runnin' wild the other night,
runnin' wild the other night.

A neighbor, neighbor, theres's always one in every crowd.
A neighbor, neighbor, tellin' lies and talkin' loud.
You better watch your step now.
You might fall off your cloud.
you might fall off your cloud.

Now I was walking down a dusty road
when along came a neighbor of mine.
He saw me walkin' with my head hung down,
he just had to stop and pass the time.
Neighbor, neighbor, floatin' in the salty brine.
floatin' in the salty brine.

Certified Blues 03:28
I woke up this mornin' with these certified blues,

they sure been stalkin' me 'round.
So down tonight I couldn't tie my shoes.
They about to drop me in the ground.

If I could shake loose I would feel so fine.
There's one thing for sure and it's on my mind.
These certified blues are gonna take their time.

I've been livin' here, way down South,
a place that I wanna stay.
Been workin' hard just to feed my mouth.
Just can keep them blues away.

There's one thing for sure and it's on my mind.
These certified blues are gonna take their time.
If I could shake loose I would feel so fine.

You say you're feelin' bad and you don't know why.
You're broke and your woman been ly'n'.
And just one thing before I'm fired,
the blues have just been certified.

If I could shake loose I would feel so fine.
There's one thing for sure and it's on my mind.
These certified blues are gonna take their time.

Bedroom Thang 03:53
I know you wanna be my bedroom thang,

but you're much too young.
You're the finest thing I've ever seen.
You just wanna have fun.

I need someone who can scratch my back.
I need someone who can carry my pack.
I need someone to be with me at night.
You're gonna make me feel alright.

Don't you bother me with petty lines,
I know you ran away from home.
This might come to you as some surprise,
I wish you'd leave me alone.

I need someone to scratch my back.
I need someone to carry my pack.
I need someone to be with me at night.
You're gonna make me feel alright.

Just Got Back From Baby's 04:14
Now I just got back from baby's,

we been rollin' al night long.
I saidI just got back from baby's,
we been rollin' al night long.
She comeon likes and loves me,
but I feel like somethin' wrong.

Now, sometimes I go se baby,
and sometimes she come see me.
I said, sometimes I go se baby,
and sometimes baby come see me.
I got a funny, funny feelin'
I'm not the only man she sees.

Now, I just got back from baby's,
big white house on the hill.
I said, I just got back from baby's,

If her lovin' don't get me,
I know her husband will.

Backdoor Love Affair 02:44

Any way you want it baby,
I'll settle for a back door love affair.

I call you on the telephone,
the party says that you ain't there.

And I need her, she's all that I need.

How I love her, she's all that I want.
How I need her, she's all that I need.

If I ever caught her with Stevie P
I'd throw her back in the Penitentiary, now.
And if I caught her with my mother's son
I'll call her daddy and get my gun.

My Fancine just turned thirteen,
she's my angelic teenage queen.
And I love her, she's all that I want.
And I need her, she's all that I need.
And I love her, she's all that I want.

Just Got Paid 03:49
I just got paid today, 

got me a pocket full of change.
Said, I just got paid today,
got me a pocket full of change.
If you believe like workin' hard all day,
just step in my shoes and take my pay.

I was born my papa's son,
when I hit the ground I was on the run.
I had one glad hand and the other behind.
You can have yours, just give me mine.
When the houd dog barkin' in the black of the night,
stick my hand in my pocket, everything's all right.

I just got paid today,
got me a pocket full of change.
Said, black sheep, black, do you got some wool?
Yes, I do, man, my bag is full.
It's the root of evil and you know the rest
but it's way ahead of what's second best.

Chevrolet 03:19
In a flat Forty-One with my strat on the door

we was goin' to the country for what we came for.
I'm sure you've smelled the trees in the air.
The best of motor cruisin's just the joy to get there.

I was approachin' Simonton down by the cotton gin.
There was old man Berkman trying to flag me in.
He asked if I would stay awhile and if I needed gas.
I said, "No thanks, anyhow I don't drive too fast."

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
ride my.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
ride my.

I took the road down to Cinco
through that red Brazos River land,
done hit that freeway at sunset.
Now the big city lights are at hand.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell 06:49
Rain fell this mornin', make me feel so bad

on account of my baby walked off with another man.
Like takin' eyesight from the blind man and money from the poor
that woman took my lovin' and walked on out that door.
And it sure got cold after the rain fell,
not from the sky, from my eye.

Somebody, can you tell me just what make a man feel this way?
Like river without its water, like night without a day.
And it sure 'nuff got cold after the rain fell,
not from the sky but from my eye.

If you're home early in the mornin' you hear that rain to fall,
with thunderbolts and lightning the wind begins to call.
Your worry's superficial 'cause you slept on through the night
but stormy weather keep you wond'rin' if ev'rything's all right.
And it sure 'nuff got cold after the rain fell,
not from the sky but from my eye,
not from the sky, from my eye.

Now I could be right and could be wrong,

You telephoned this mornin', said you'd be home soon.
The doorman said he seen you at the Club Blue Lagoon.
I should have known better than to fool with a whiskey'n mama.

Whiskey'n mama, you standin' there
with your curly hair
just to have you do me good.
I know you could if you only would.

My baby from town just had to get down,

I had the blues and my baby, she knew
she's holdin' little piece of mind.

Down brownie,

Got my share and I'm a black hand cottonfield
just to try and keep myself alive.
Eatin' red beans and rice with the rat's hole, it's nice

Master Of Sparks 03:30
High class Slim came floatin' in 

down from the county line.
Just gettin' right on Saturday night,
ridin' with some friends of mine.
They invited me just to come and see
just what was on their minds
and then I took my first long look
at the on high.

In the back of Jimmy's Mack
stood a round steel cage
welded into shape by Slim,
made out of sucker gauge.
How fine, they cried, now with you inside,
strapped in there safe and sound.
I thought, my-o-my, how the sparks will fly
if that thing ever hit the ground.

Slim was so pleased when I had eased
into his trap of death.
He had slammed the door but I said no more
and I though I'd breathed my last breath.
We was out in the sticks down Highway Six
and the crowd was just about right.
The speed was too, so out I flew
like a stick of rollin' dynamite.

When I hit the ground you could hear the sound
and see the sparks a country mile.
End over end I began to spin
but the ball started runnin' wild.
But it was too late as I met my fate
and the ball started gettin' hot.
But through the sparks and the flame I knew that the claim
of the was gone.

somethin' good's happenin' to me.

Hot, blue and righteous
angel called me aside.
Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Then I heard Red Rooster start his crowin'
around the curve that cloud of smoke was blowin'.

I tell you, boy, every time
the feelin' sure is fine.
Just move me on down the line,
just move me on down the line.

I'll be where the big wheels keep on turnin'
and the diesel drivers keep them engines burnin'.

Under the oaks I was telling some jokes
and thinkin' I had it made-
Gettin' on with the folks, havin' some Coke
and coolin' off in the shade.

My tempature had risen again,

IV. LONG DISTANCE BOOGIE

Is everybody feelin' good? You makin' us feel good, too!
Now, early this morning I got on that long distance telephone
and I called my mama.
I said, "Mama, this is your boy, and I'm way down here in
New Orleans, Louisiana."
And she said, "That's all right, boy."
And she turned to my papa and she said,
"Papa, our boy's way down there in New Orleans.
We cannot let him stay out all night long."
She did!
Long about that time, I heard my papa lean toward my mama.
I heard papa tell mama, "Let that boy boogie-woogie."
He said, "It's in him and it's got to come out."

So I went downtown.
There's a lot of people there.
They was-a really havin' a ball.
And I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.
Yes, I felt so good.

Boogie, children!

Boogie, children!

Nasty Dogs And Funky Kings 02:49
Well, I knocked down on your door, baby,

to see if you were at home.
Your shade was down, there wasn't even a sound
but something told me you weren't alone.
What in the world can a nasty dog do
but try to get next to you?

Don't laugh 'cause it ain't funny.
Look how it happened to me.
It could happen to you, you could be a fool too
and it'd leave you in misery.
I guess there's nothin' more funky king can do
but to try to get next to you.

Mm, well.

Balinese 02:38
Deep in the South of Texas

not so long ago,
there on a crowded island
in the Gulf of Mexico

it didn't take too much money,
man, but it sure was nice.
You could dance all night if you felt all right,
drinking whiskey and throwing dice.

And everybody knows
it was hard to leave.
And everybody knows
it was down at the.

Yeah, I remember Ruby,
she always dressed in red
wearing skintight pants, Lord, and how she could dance
with a rag wrapped around her head.

And everybody knows
it was hard to leave.
And everybody knows
it was down at the.

And everybody knows

Mexican Blackbird 03:05
If you're down in Acuna and you ain't up to being alone

don't spend all your money on just any honey that's grown.
Go find the Mexican blackbird and send all your troubles back home.

They all call her her "puta" 'cause no one really knows her name.
She works the cantina, dancin' and a-lovin's her trade.
Her mama was Mez'can and her daddy was the ace of spades.

Oh, let's drive that old Chrysler down to Mexico, boy.
Said, keep your hands on the wheel there.
Oh, it sure is fine, ain't it?
Now, ya got it! Hand me another one of them brews from back there.
Oh, this is gonna be so good.

Mm, she's hot as a pepper but smooth as a Mexican brew.
So head for the border and put in an order or two.
The wings of the blackbird will spread like an eagle for you.

Oh, one more time,
can you roll me another Bull Durham, please?
Can't you do it with one hand, boy?

Heard It On The X 02:29
Do you remember 

back in nineteen sixty-six?
Country Jesus, hillbilly blues,
that's where I learned my licks.
Oh, from coast to coast and line to line
in every county there,
I'm talkin' 'botu that outlaw X
is cuttin' through the air.

Anywhere, y'all,
everywhere, y'all,
I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it on the X.

We can all thank Doctor B
who stepped across the line.
With lots of watts he took control,
the first one of its kind.
So listen to your radio
most each and every night
'cause if you don't I'm sure you won't
get to feeling right.

Anywhere, y'all,
everywhere, y'all,
I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it on the X.

It's Only Love 04:23
I'm gonna tell ya what it's all about

Sweet thang's tryin' to put me out
She gone and found herself another man
She tryin' to let me down as fast as she can

It's only love, it drives me crazy
It's only love pretty baby
Baby, what you tryin' to do

Well after runnin' round a time or two
I found out only the best will do
Well it's your own fault for lettin' her go
So maybe now you'll take it slow

It's only love, it drives me crazy
It's only love pretty baby
Baby, what you tryin' to do

Well, it's all over now but the cryin'
I keep on payin' the price for my lyin'
Don't let it get you down it ain't nothin' new
You ain't the only one that it's happened to

It's only love, it drives me crazy
It's only love pretty baby
Baby, what you tryin' to do

Arrested For Driving While Blind 03:08
When you're driving down the highway at night

And you're feelin' that wild turkey's bite
Don't give Johnny Walker a ride
Cause Jack Black is right by your side
You might get taken to the jailhouse and find
You've been arrested for driving while blind

Now just the other night with nothin' to do
We broke a case of proof 102
And started itchin' for that wonderful feel
Of rollin' in an automobile
You could say we was out of our mind
And let me tell you we were flyin' while blind

Then they had us up against the wall
Hey it's only blood grain alcohol
And there ain't no cause for alarm
We ain't out to do nobody no harm
How could anyone be so unkind
To arrest a man for drivin' while blind

El Diablo 04:22
Did you ever hear the story

That happened not long ago
'bout the man with a tan
El diablo de Mexico
And this man played his hand
And he lived by the luck of the draw
Now and then and again
Found him steppin' outside the law
Hey! hey!

And his fortune he had made
let him live high on the hog
Til the day of the raid
When they hunted him like a dog
He was out on the run
Knowing he could get by
Cause the men killed in sin
were not there to testify
Hey! hey!

He was caught, he was bound
In la casa de Calaboose
He was tried, he was found
And readied for the noose
But the break he would make
It didn't turn out so well
And the hombre called Diablo
Bid his last farewell

Come on! Come on!

Did they talk to you today?
I say Hey
Did you see it their way?
The moon she is high, we must leave tonite
We must get away, we will join the fight
Come on! Come on!

I say Hey!
Did our brothers stay
I say Hey
Will our sisters pay
Does it really matter of the friends we lost
It doesn't really matter cause their souls were lost
Come on! Come on!

I say Hey!!

Enjoy And Get It On 03:26
Oh I'm makin' my way back home

Least that's what I told her on the phone
Been a while since I made her smile
And I know she gonna dig my style
Could you enjoy baby
Really enjoy gettin' it on

Could I get some pie ala mode
When I come in off the road
Do she still have her fightin' gear
Just one look is gonna make it clear
If she would enjoy baby
Really enjoyed gettin' it on

How does it feel holdin' me again
She's holdin' on like it gonna never end
Well I'm home thinkin' I should stay
While I'm here just let me hear you say
Say you enjoyed baby
Really enjoyed gettin' it on

With your peaches and your pream
And your rollin magazine
Tellin' me you'll make me feel alright
You gonna make me feel alright

Mr. ten dollar man with a girl by the hand
Will this ten spot take her away?
With his slaver's finance he winked,
Said take a chance
Don't you know it happens every day
I said it happens every day

Mr. ten dollar man with that gun in your hand
Could I get a case of those tonight
And now you've got the order, it's time
To slip the border
Don't you know it happens every day

Pan Am Highway Blues 03:14
I've gotten good at missin' her

I practice all the time
While I drive the Pan Am highway thru
With that cactus friend of mine
It's gettin' hard to see the white line rollin' by
I can't forget her memory deep inside

I dropped a bundle down in Panama
But the loss didn't do me no good
Spendin' cash and talkin' trash
Don't do it like it should
I realized I just couldn't buy her smile
I'll keep tryin' on that Pan Am mile by mile

If she'd meet me in San Salvador
I'd buy her a drink or two
We'd talk about our used to be
And ride on to Peru
The time to get it right is here and now
If she won't I'll move on anyhow

Avalon Hideaway 03:07
Somebody breathin' down my neck

While I'm tryin' to roll the bones
I don't care I'll just float a check
Cause I'm feelin' my gamblin' Jones
Here come seven, gimme eleven come again
Love to hideout where I am my own best friend

There's crazy little Linda Lou
With the long and lanky legs
Nobody do it like Linda do
At these backwoods lone star dregs
Like I told you, head out FM 92
Roll in slowly, you'll be safer if you do

If you don't know what I'm talkin' about
Let me ease your worried mind
It's the place to go without a doubt
But it's a litlle bit hard to find
Back in the timber, once you're there
You'll wanna stay
Get loose and limber anytime night or day
Just remember, ask for the Avalon hideway

She's A Heartbreaker 03:01
She used to drive a beat up pickup

Down around San Antone
Stealin' the heart of every guy in town
Includin' the one I own
But this sweet young thing of seventeen
Would sting you with the lovesick blues
Just a blonde haired blue eyed picture of sin
Lookin' for someone to use

She's a lover 'n fighter, she's a wild bull rider
And I'm wonderin' why she left me such a long time ago
She's a heartbreaker, she's a love taker
She can break a heart and take all the love she needs

Well I heard she got down in Beaumont
And she wound up in El Paso
She was tuff as a boot and thin as a rail
And she could step to the cotton eyed Joe
If you run across this flagrant fuzzy
Slip in and get her while you can
Cause before too long she'll be good as gone
And runnin' with another man

She's a lover 'n fighter, she's a wild bull rider
And I'm wonderin' why she left me such a long time ago
She's a heartbreaker, she's a love taker
She can break a heart and take all the love she needs

She kinda funky with her pink and black socks.
She likes to boogie,

Well now boogie woogie baby,

She is an American car,

She isn't legal so she can't go far.
She got her mind stuck up in second gear,
Where she going ain't exactly clear.
Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home.

Low mileage without a pink slip,
Clean upholstery and it ain't been ripped.
She stripped her gears only late last night,
I don't think that thing was oiling right.
Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home.

She shakes and shimmies all over the road,
She's always happy when she carry a load.
Another lonesome automobile,
Something bout the way she makes me feel.
Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home.

When the light comes and yu're feelin' down

Cause your baby's out there somewhere runnin' round.
Don't start feeling blue and feeling lonely too,
It's hard I know when that love ain't true.

You just can't explain, but you know it's there,
That empty feeling seems so unfair.
What can you do when it's gone, it's gone,
'Cause those lovin' feelings seem to hurt so long.

So if you feel like cryin', go ahead and cry,
A heartbreak will cool as time goes by.
And it's so hard baby, it's so hard to take.
It's so hard baby, it's so hard to take.

Well you work so long every day and night,
Tryin' every thing that seems so right.
But when a love falls a heart must break,
And it's so hard baby, it's so hard to take.

And I was really blown away,
Until I asked her what she wanted,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She gets a charge out of bein' so weird,
Digs gettin' downright strange.
But I can keep a handle on anything,
Just this side of deranged.
She was gettin' bombed,
And I was gettin' blown away,
And she held it in her hand
And this is what she had to say:

She is so tough, as pure as the driven slush.
And that's not true what she's talkin' about,
It really don't cost that much.

Surprised?
Yes, it's me again.
I have just returned from the island of Chandelier.
What am I doing in town?
Well, I'm glad you asked.
I'm just passing through in search of the ever elusive Thunderbird.

I got a job as a public relations man.
Passing out handbills on Austin Street.
Merely an effort to improve my financial situation,
And ward off a case of the D.T.'s

So farewell, my darling.
Perhaps we'll meet again
On some sin-infested street corner in Houston Texas.

Party On The Patio 02:49
I found an empty house in my neighborhood,

I knew that wer shouldn't but I thought we could.
Knew it wouldn't be hard to slide into the backyard,
Called all my friends and slipped a hundred to the guard.
We turned on the radio and had a party on the patio.

Betty's in the sauna and she's getting kind of hot,
Mary's in the icebox wishin' she was not.
Connie's in the whirlpool, Jimmy's tryin' to be cool,
Libby's in the bushes 'cause she's nobody's fool.
We turned the lights down low and had a party on the patio.

Heard the cops are coming so we tried to jump the fence,
Mary didn't make it and we haven't seen her since.
Connie had another drink, Jimmy simply couldn't think,
Billy G. was passed out underneath the sink.
But everybody's gonna show for another party on the patio.
