Why Lady Why

Original and similar lyrics
Words and Music by Teddy Gentry and Richard Scott Why, lady, why, can't I leave you alone? I try, lady, try, but the feeling's too strong. You stay on my mind. Feel just like a fool. Why, lady, why, can't I get over you? Why, lady, why? It was easy before. I try, lady, try, but it ain't easy no more. To be on my way would be the best thing to do. Why, lady, why, can't I get over you? Why, lady, why, can't I leave you alone? I try, lady, try, but the feeling's too strong. To be on my way would be the best thing to do. Why, lady, why, can't I get over you?

Taking My Baby Up Town

JOAN ARMATRADING "To The Limit"
I was walking down the street Looking like a million dollars With a pretty person on my arm When someone started shouting They were hooting and a hollering They were saying I should Never have been born I said baby you hear that You're listening to the voices of fools I said baby let me tell you What they're trying to do They're trying to make our love A thing of the past But I said a-ha There very next day It was early in the morning The sun was shining on my back I was feeling pretty rested The air smelt good And I forgot about The thing in the park When they walked up then they passed me You know I didn't want to turn my head But they started up again And those silly voices rang And the clanging was Too much for my brain But I said a-ha What we've got is the best It was Friday I had money I was feeling kind of special I was taking my baby up town The moon was high The stars were bright And there were lots of people in the street I held your hand And you kissed me And then all the people started to stare We started a commotion Someone making comments Morals, the state of affairs And I said What we got is the best

High Dry

SOMETHING CORPORATE
Two jumps in a week, I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy? Flying on your motorcycle, watching all the ground beneath you drop You'd kill yourself for recognition, kill yourself to never, ever stop You broke another mirror, you're turning into something you are not Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Drying up in conversation, you'll be the one who cannot talk All your insides fall to pieces, you just sit there wishing you could still make love They're the ones who'll hate you when you think you've got the world all sussed out They're the ones who'll spit on you, you'll be the one screaming out Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Oh, it's the best thing that you ever had, the best thing that you ever, ever had. It's the best thing that you ever had, the best thing you have had has gone away. Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

High And Dry

JAMIE CULLUM "Pointless Nostalgic"
Two jumps in a week, I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you, boy? Flying on your motorcycle, watching all the ground beneath you drop. You'd kill yourself for recognition, You'd kill yourself to never ever stop You broke another mirror. You're turning in to something that your not. Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Drying up in conversation, you will be the one who cannot talk. All your insides fall to pieces, you just sit there wishing you could still make love. They're the ones who'll hate you, when you think you've got the world all sussed out. There the ones who'll spit at you. You will be the one screaming out. Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me.....dry [piano solo] It's the best thing you have ever had, it's the best thing you have ever had. Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry do do do...[x1] do do do...[x2] do do do...[x8]

Performance

JOE COCKER "I Can Stand A Little Rain"
Your performance is almost over When you’re through I will take you home To a place where the water’s always fresh and cool I will lay you down, take off your shoes Yes, the curtain is about to take your place There’s that sad, almost grin upon your face ‘Cause you know you’ve done your best Now honey leave the rest to me and I’ll take care of you As they watch you fall down to your knees They don’t know that you’re praying to please They don’t see the little angel at your back with a star The only one who knows exactly who you are You’re a thing that makes music they don’t understand And they cheer as you carry out your endless plan You are weary but you must, it’s the only thing you trust As you live you’ve got to give Your performance is almost over When you’re through I will take you home You’re a ghost that I can see, you’re the other part of me Now honey I will take care of you ‘Cause you know you’ve done your best Now honey leave the rest to me and I’ll take care of you

O Brother!

JOAN BAEZ "Gulf Winds"
You've got eyes like Jesus But you speak with a viper's tongue We were just sitting around on earth Where the hell did you come from? With your lady dressed in deerskin And an amazing way about her When are you going to realize That you just can't live without her? Take it easy Take it light But take it Your lady gets her power From the goddess and the stars You get yours from the trees and the brooks And a little from life on Mars And I've known you for a good long while And would you kindly tell me, mister How in the name of the Father and the Son Did I come to be your sister? Take it easy Take it light But take it You've done dirt to lifelong friends With little or no excuses Who endowed you with the crown To hand out these abuses? Your lady knows about these things But they don't put her under Me, I know about them, too And I react like thunder Take it easy Take it light But take it I know you are surrounded By parasites and sychophants When I come to see you I dose up on coagulants Because when you hurl that bowie knife It's going to be when my back is turned Doing some little deed for you And baby, will I get burned Take it easy Take it light But take it So little brother when you come To knock on my door I don't want to bring you down But I just went through the floor My love for you extends through life And I don't want to waste it But honey, what you've been dishing out You'd never want to taste it And if I had the nerve To either risk it or to break it I'd put our friendship on the line And show you how to take it Take it easy Take it light But take it
