Quit Your Low Down Ways

Original and similar lyrics
(Dylan) Oh you can read out of your bible You can fall down on your knees Pretty mama, and pray to the lord But it ain't gonna do you no good You're gonna need You're gonna need my help someday Well, if you can't quit your sinnin' Please quit your lowdown ways Well you can run down to the White House You can gaze at the Capitol Dome Pretty mama, you can pound on the President's gate It'll do you no good chorus Well you can run down to the desert Throw yourself on the burnin sand You can raise up your right hand pretty mama But you better understand chorus You can hitch hike on the highways You can stand alone by the side of the road You can try to ??? a ride back home pretty mama But you can't ride in my car chorus verse 1 chorus Quit your lowdown ways

My Old School

STEELY DAN "Countdown To Ecstasy"
I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes When you put me on the Wolverine Up to Annandale It was still September When your daddy was quite surprised To find you with the working girls In the county jail I was smoking with the boys upstairs When I heard about the whole affair I said oh no William and Mary won't do CHORUS: Well I did not think the girl Could be so cruel And I'm never going back To my old school Oleanders growing outside her door Soon they're gonna be in bloom Up in Annandale I can't stand her Doing what she did before Living like a gypsy queen In a fairy tale Well I hear the whistle but I can't go I'm gonna take her down to Mexico She said oh no Guadalajara won't do CHORUS California tumbles into the sea That'll be the day I go Back to Annandale Tried to warn you About Chino and Daddy Gee But I can't seem to get to you Through the U.S. Mail Well I hear the whistle but I can't go I'm gonna take her down to Mexico She said oh no Guadalajara won't do CHORUS

Cadillac Ranch

CHRIS LEDOUX "Best Of Chris Ledoux"
Well the well went dry and the cow did too daddy didn't know what to do the banker came by the house one day said he's gonna take the farm away then mama came up with a plan brother and me started up a band sister put a sign on the roof and daddy bought a case of 90 proof Chorus: Now we call it the Cadillac Ranch they're parking cars in the old beat patch there's a bar in the barn and the place stays packed 'till the cows come home at Cadillac Ranch Now the only thing the we raise is cane we don't need the sun or rain just a neon sign and some ice cold beer keeps everything in real around here mama takes the cash at the door brother and me keep 'em out on the floor sister sets 'em up at the bar and daddy kicks back with a big cigar Chorus Well we gave all the cows away and now the only holes around here today are the ones up on the grill of a genuine '59 coupe deville Chorus Repeat

Mystery Dance( W Extra Verse)

ELVIS COSTELLO "My Aim Is True"
Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill. He jumped out the window cause he couldn't sit still. Juliet was waiting with a safety net. He said Don't bury me cause I'm not dead yet . Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance. I wanna know about the mystery dance. Why don't you show me, 'cause I've tried and I've tried, and I'm still mystified. I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied. I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied. Well I remember when the lights went out and I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt. She thought that I knew, and I thought that she knew, so both of us were willing, but we didn't know how to do it. chorus Well I was down under the covers in the middle of the night, tryin' to discover my left foot from my right. You can see those pictures in any magazine. But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean. chorus I'm gonna walk right up to heaven dodgeing lightning rods I'm gonna have this very personal conversation with god I said You got the information, Why don't you say so? He'll say Well I've been around and I still don't know. chorus

Well now Bill Jackson went to poor ol' Dub To join the Uptown Poker Club And he cursed the day he ever told anybody he joined Cause his money used to go like it had wings When he had queens somebody else had kings And every night he'd just sit there donatin' all his coins He said boys now I'm gonna play it right tonight I'm gonna watch them cards and I'm gonna play 'em tight And then when I come in there son my hand's gonna be a peach Well he played 'em tight but after awhile He done lost his self a considerable pile So he got mad he stood up and he made this little speech Now boys you see this razor well I had it sharpened just today Now I'm comin' in here with my rules that everybody gonna follow when they play Now you Clyde you keep your hands on top of the table when you're dealing please Quit takin' them little wild cards and stickin' em down there between your knees And Jesse quit makin' all them funny signs like you tryin' to tip off your hand You better talk to me in American son American so's I can understand And Leroy quit takin' em offa the bottom ooh that's rough Just take five off the top then stop that's enough Then pass me them cards son let me cut on them things every time before you deal I like to handle them things boy I like to see Cause I got news for you lad you ain't playin' this game accordin' that fella Hoyle there Uh uh no tonight you're playin' this game accordin' to me Well now a sittin' around the table in that there game There just happened to be this ol' one-eyed man And Bill kept watchin' him out of the corner of his eye This old one-eyed cat he'd been dealin' kinda funny He done took a whole bunch of big Bill's money So Bill rose up and he looked around the room and with a sigh He said hmm said it's an awful shame Said there's somebody cheatin' in this here game Said of course it ain't gonna do for me to stand up here and mention the guy So I'll refrain from calling that party's name But you let me catch him cheatin' just once again And I'm gonna take my fist and I’m gonna close that other eye Now you see this razor well I had it sharpened just today Now I'm comin' in here with my rules that everybody must follow when they play Now Clyde you keep them bony hands up here on top of the table when you're dealin' please Don't go takin' them little wild aces stickin' em off down there between your knees And Jesse cut out makin' all them monkey signs you still tryin' to tip off your hand You better talk to me in American big AA so's I can understand And Leroy quit takin' em off the bottom of the deck son I tell ya that's rough This is an army game son take five then halt that's enough Then pass me them face cards over here let me cut them things every time before you deal Cause I like to delve in there son I got to see Cause I got news for you boys you ain't playin this game accordin' to that fella Hoyle there Uh uh tonight you're playin' this game accordin' to me Now then seein' as how you all know that I didn't ride in here on a head of cabbage Henry if you'll break out another deck of them Bicycles me and the boys will get on with the business But keep your eye on that fella wearin' the patch he holds them cards kinda funny Ha ha if he ain't careful somebody around this table liable to jack his jaw Ha ha ha ah son I feel like my luck just changed

Shut Out The Light

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Disc: 1"
The runway rushed up at him, as he felt the wheels touch down He stood out on the blacktop, and took a taxi into town. He got off down on Main Street, and went into a local bar Bought a drink and found a seat in the corner in the dark She called up her mama to make sure the kids were outa' the house She checked herself out in the dining room mirror, and undid an extra button on her blouse He felt her lyin' next to him and the clock said 4 am He was starin' at the ceilin' he couldn't move his hands {Chorus}: Oh mama, mama, mama come quick, I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick, throw your arms around me in the cold dark night, hey now mama don't shut out the light, don't you shut out the light,.... Well on his porch they stretched a banner, that said Johnny Welcome Home Bobby pulled his Ford outa' the garage and they polished up the chrome His mama said Johnny oh Johnny, I'm so glad to have you back with me His pa said he was sure they'd give him his job back at the renderin' factory {Repeat Chorus} Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name In the cold black water, Johnson Linnier stands He stares across the lights of the city and dreams of where he's been. {Repeat Chorus}
