Midnight Rider
Words and music by greg allman

I got to run to keep from hidin'

And I'm bound to keep on ridin'

I got one more silver dollar

But I'm not gonna let them catch

The midnight rider


I got only the clothes I'm wearin'

And the road goes on forever

I got one more silver dollar

And I'm not gonna let them catch

The midnight rider


I own all the clothes I'm wearin'

Some old bed I'll soon be sharin'

Got me one more silver dollar

And I'm not gonna let them catch

The midnight rider


Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Not gonna let 'em catch me

Come on

Keep on riding

Keep on riding

Keep on riding

So I Wrote You a Song
Words and music by bob seger

I woke up with this feeling

There was something I wanted to say

So I wrote you a song.


Lately girl I've been dreamin'

Dreamin' 'bout you all through the day

So I wrote you a song.


Hope the words will be right

When I see you tonight,

You'll know how I feel.

I'm no longer alone,

Think I've found me a home

And I think it's real.


I woke up with this feeling

Haven't felt it for quite some time,

So I wrote you a song.


All these thoughts I've been dreaming

Somehow I've got to make them right,

Got to make them belong.

Everytime that you're here

Everytime that you're near

Everything is real.

I'm no longer alone,

Think I've found me a home,

And I think it's real,

So I wrote you a song.back to top
Stealer
Words and music by fraser and rogers

I went down to the center of town

Beneath my feet was the burning ground

Just stood on the corner as sexy as could be

Said hey good looking, walk away with me

I said yeah, I'm your stealer,

Come to steal your love.


Sun was shining, the world was bright,

I said, tell me darling, where you gonna be tonight?

Goin' around the corner, where the music's loud.

I'm tired of the city, gonna cat me around.

And I said yeah, I'm your stealer,

I come to steal your love.

I come to

I come to steal


Goin' around the corner, where the music's loud.

I'm tired of the city, gonna cat me around.

And I said yeah, I'm your stealer

I come to steal your love.

I'm stealin'...let me steal now...come steal it...

Come steal it...come steal it...back to top
Rosalie
Words and music by bob seger

She's quite the mediator

A smoother operator you will never see

She'll see you later

And no one dares disuade her openly


She knows music

And no music till you see

She's got the power

Of loyal teens - queen rosalie

Rosalie... rosalie...rosalie


She's got the classics

Comes from all the corners, corners of the world

So fatastic

She's everybody's little record girl


She knows music

No music till you see

She's got the power... got the power, rosalie...rosalie... rosalie


From chattanooga to good bogalloosa

You can hear them fine

She makes her choices

And it may be best to smilin' when it's choosin' time


Knows music

No music till you see

She's got the power, got the tower, rosalie...rosalie...rosalie


Knows music...knows music...knows music

Turn the Page
This is the original song, later covered by Metallica.
Bob Seger's version is much mellower and more turned down
than the cover, but still basically the same lyrics apply.
Here they are.
Good storyteller, that Bob Seger.


On a long and lonesome highway, East of Ohmaha
You can listen to the engine moanin out it's one long song.
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before.

But your thoughts will soon be wonderin, the way they always do
When you're riding sixteen hours and there's nothin much to do.
And you don't feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through.


(Chorus)
Here I am, on the road again.
There I am, up on the stage.
There I go, playing star again.
Well there I go, turn the page. . .


Well you walk into this restaraunt, strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you as you're shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode.

Most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can.
All the same old cliches: "Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand.

(Chorus)
Here I am, on the road again.
There I am, up on the stage.
There I go, playing star again.
Well there I go, turn the page. . .


Out there in the spotlight you're a million miles away.
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As your sweat poors out your body like the music that you play.

Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringing in your head
You smoke the day's last ciggarette, remembrin' what she said. . .


(Chorus)
Here I am, on the road again.
There I am, up on the stage.
There I go, playing star again.
Well there I go, turn the page. . .

(Chorus)
Here I am, on the road again.
There I am, up on the stage.
There I go, playing star again.
Well there I go, turn the page. . .back to top
Back in '72
Words and music by bob seger

Went out in norfork hung on a short short

Livin' with a bottle of wine

To music, ladies and burned out babies

I was tryin' to write a couple of lines

Sherriff gribbs with his grim ad libs

Spoutin' 'bout the crime in the streets

And women were screamin' and some were dreamin'

'bout the crowd between the sheets

You know that music died, hurt my pride

Somehow I got through, back in '72


Somehow we made it to baton rouge

We stayed inside for a week

We weren't in town for no mardi gras

So we decided to sleep

Houston, yes, was a good old guest

Tho knows how bad we wanted to play

But we got homesick for lincoln park

(imagine that) and then we just couldn't stay

Tricky dick, he played it slick

Something I was afraid he'd do

Back in '72 , oh, '72


Then all our new born philosophers

Out went to alert the world

Then some psuedo-intellectuals

Even got it unfurled

Takin' notes on that harvard course

And got me on a bottle of seed

It was so hip to be negative

So square to try and leave

When the waters cleared, it was what we feared

We learned nothin' new,

Back in '72

'72

'72

In '72

Back in '72

Back in '72 back in '72,...back to top
Neon Sky
Words and music by bob seger

There's the neon sky that I know so well

There's the smoky room where I chose to dwell

Though I hear your heart many miles away

The neon sky tells me I must stay


Through the windy field of another land

I have seen your face, girl, I have held your hand

Though I should be there, with you there today

The neon sky knows that I must stay


Cause the devil's red, but his money's green

That's where I'm from, oh, that's where I've been


On a dusty stage, many years ago,

I chose my road, still I hope you know

That there'll come a day with the neon sky

When we'll walk into the sun, you and i


Yes so he calls, beckons unto me

From the empty hall, from the galleries

And so I must go, leave you here today

Cause the neon sky orders me away

Yes, the devil's red, but his money's green

That's where I'm from, oh, that's where I've beenback to top
I've Been Working
I've been working
I've been working so hard
I've been working
I've been working so hard
I come home make love to you
Makin' love to you, now

I've been grinding
I've been grinding for so long
I've been grinding
Grinding for so long
I come home
I want you in my arms
I want you in my arms

I said woman woman woman woman woman
Woman woman woman woman woman woman woman
Hey

I get so lonely
Get so lonely
Out on the road
Gets so lonely
I've been grinding
I've been grinding for so long
13 years I've been working baby
Working for so long
When I get home
You best be in my arms
I want you in my arms

And I said woman woman woman woman woman
Woman woman woman woman woman woman womanback to top
I've Got Time
Words and music by bob seger

I was born at the break of dawning

In the last days of the last great war

My father was not in the fighting

And my mother never had to mourn


I was raised, raised and taught to hurry

I've been hurrying and worrying all my days

But now as I'm getting older

I think I'm learning how to run the race

And with you by my side, your heart close to mine,

I've got time


I used to wake up every morning

And lie there far too long

I had no reason for living

Everything I did was wrong

With you, and your faith in me,

Oh, how you made my whole life shine

And I've got time

You, and your faith in me,

Little girl, you made my whole life shine

And I've got timeback to top
