Lawdy Mama. Version One

(traditional)

Wanna go out, baby, too late at night.
Lawdy mama, no need to worry.
Wanna go out, baby, too late at night.
I got a real funny feelin'
You're gonna treat your daddy right.

Big-legged woman, come and hold my hand.
Lawdy mama, no need to worry.
Big-legged woman, come and hold my hand.
I got a real funny feelin'
You wanna love some other man.

Passing the Time [alternate version]

(Ginger Baker — Mike Taylor)

It is a cold winter,
Away is the songbird.
And gone is her traveller,
She waits at home.

The sun is on holiday,
No leaves on the trees.
The animals sleep
While cold North wind blows.

The snowflakes are falling,
The roof a white blanket.
There's ice on the window pane,
She waits alone.

She sits by the fireside,
The room is so warm.
Her children are sleeping,
She waits in their home.

Passing the time.
Passing the time, everything fine.
Passing the time, having the wine.
Passing the time, drinking red wine.
Passing the time, drinking red wine.
Passing the time, drinking red wine.
Passing the time, everything fine.
Passing the time, drinking red wine.
Passing the time, everything fine.
Passing the time, wine and time rhyme.
Passing the time.

It is a long winter,
Away is the summer.
She waits for her traveller
So far from home.

She sits by the fireside,
The room is so warm.
There's ice on the window,
She's lonely alone.

N. S. U. [live]

Driving in my car, smoking my cigar,
The only time I'm happy's when I play my guitar.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Singing in my yacht, what a lot I got,
Happiness is something that just cannot be bought.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

I've been in and I'm out, I've been up and down,
I don't want to go until I've been all around.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

What's it all about, anyone in doubt,
I don't want to go until I've sussed it all out

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Crossroads [live]

(Robert Johnson)

I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
Down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
Asked the Lord above for mercy, "Save me if you please."

I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride.
Down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride.
Nobody seemed to know me, everybody passed me by.

Well I'm going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
You can still barrelhouse, baby, on the riverside.

Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
You can still barrelhouse, baby, on the riverside.

You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy, Willie Brown.
Run, you can run, tell my friend-boy, Willie Brown.
And I'm staying at the crossroads, believe I'm sinking down.

I went down to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
I went down to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above "Have mercy, save poor Bob, if you please."

Mmmmm, standin' at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride
Standin' at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by

Mmm, the sun goin' down, boy, dark gon' catch me here
oooo, ooee, eee boy, dark gon' catch me here
I haven't got no lovin' sweet woman that love and feel my care

You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy, Willie Brown.
You can run, tell my friend-boy, Willie Brown.
Lord, that I'm standin' at the crossroad, babe, I believe I'm sinking down.

I'm So Glad [live]

I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad

Donna what to do, Donna know what to do, don't know what to do
Tired of weepin', tired of moanin', and I'm tired of groanin' for you

I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad

Tired of weepin', tired of moanin', tired of groaning for you
Donna what to do, Donna what to do, don't know what to do, yeah

I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
I'm so glad, I'm so glad  
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad

(Chorus repeated 4 times)
