Walk Out In The Rain
by Bob Dylan and Helena Springs

Walk out if it doesn't feel right,
I can tell you're only lying.
If you've got something better tonight
Then don't mess up my mind with your crying.

Just walk out in the rain,
Walk out with your dreams,
Walk out of my life if you don't feel right.
And catch the next train;
Oh, darling, walk out in the rain.

I have come from so far away
Just to put a ring on your finger.
If you've said all that you've got to say
Then please don't feel the need to linger.

Chorus

It's raining outside of the city;
My poor feet have walked till they're sore.
If you don't want my love, it's a pity.
I guess I can't see you no more.

Watch Out For Lucy
by Eric Clapton

Now my friend Bill was just a working lad
And he liked to have his fun.
He'd like to find a girl and get comfortable
When his working day was done.

He would spend all his money on a Friday night,
Wake up in the morning broke,
But he had a run in with little Lucy then;
Believe me that ain't no joke.

Watch out for Lucy,
Though she may look frail.
Say excuse me, Lucy,
Darling don't you use me;
I don't want to land in jail.

She started out working in a cafe,
Picking money up on the side.
She was free and easy, everybody's friend,
But she couldn't be satisfied.

So now in walks Bill with his cash in his hand,
His heart upon his sleeve.
We tried to warn him about her ways,
We never did succeed.

Chorus

Well, the trap was sprung for poor old Bill;
You should have heard little Lucy sing
"I want a Cadillac car, a beautiful home,
And a thousand dollar ring."

They found our hero in the gutter
With a diamond ring and a gun.
He'd done it for the love of Lucy
And ended up on the run.

I'll Make Love To You Anytime
by J. J. Cale

Well I can't read and I can't write
And I don't know my left from right.

I can't tell if the sun's gonna shine
And I don't know if you'll ever be mine,
But I'll make love to you any old time at all.

I can't swim and I can't fly,
I ain't no fish, ain't a bird in the sky.

Chorus

I can't count from one to ten,
And I don't know the shape I'm in.

Roll It
by Marcy Levy and Eric Clapton

Roll it, rock it, roll it in the socket.
Roll, roll it, roll, roll it.
Feel it, can you feel it, all night, all right.
Oh burn it, rock it, moving in the socket.
Yeah yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Gonna getcha, gonna getcha, here it comes, don't try to run.
I must love you, gonna sock it, gonna roll it, gonna rock.
Roll, roll it, roll, roll it.
Oh lord, rock it, loving in the socket, yeah yeah.back to top
Tell Me That You Love Me
by Eric Clapton

Tell me that you love me as often as you can;
Let me know that I'm your one and only man.
Give me confirmation with every passing day.
A love as sweet as ours will never fade away.

Catch me when I'm falling, help me when I'm blue.
Don't you realize that I'd do the same for you?
Find me when I'm lonely, carry me back home.
Treat me gently and my heart will never roam.

Straighten me out, pull me through,
Let me know that I'm still in love with you.
Be my woman, be my friend,
Stick with me until the very end.

Chorus

If I Don't Be There By Morning
by Bob Dylan and Helena Springs

Blue sky upon the horizon,
Private eye is on my trail,
And if I don't be there by morning
You know that I must have spent the night in jail.

I've been running from Memphis to L. A.
Had an appointment set sometime for today,
And if I don't be there by morning
You know that I must have gone the other way.

Finding my way back to you girl,
Lonely and blue and mistreated too.
Sometimes I think of you girl,
Is it true that you think of me too?

I got a woman living in L. A.
I got a woman waiting for my pay,
And if I don't be there by morning,
Pack my clothes, get down on your knees and pray.

Chorus

I left my woman with a twenty dollar bill.
I left her waiting, I hope she's waiting for me still.
If I don't be there by morning
You know that I, I never will.back to top
Early In The Morning (Traditional)
When a girl reach the age of 18
She begins to think she's grown,
And hat's the kind of little girl
You can never find at home.

Come and see me early in the morning,
Just about the break of day.
Want to see me hug my pillow
Where my baby used to lay?

One drink of wine,
Two drinks of gin.
Pretty young got me
In the shape I'm in.

Chorus

I pass by the juke joint,
Look through the door.
She's doing the boogie-woogie
In the middle of the floor.

Promises
by Richard Feldman and Roger Linn

I don't care if you never come home,
I don't mind if you just keep on
Rowing away on a distant sea,
'Cause I don't love you and you don't love me.

You cause a commotion when you come to town;
You give 'em a smile and they melt.
Having lovers and friends is all good and fine,
But I don't like yours and you don't like mine.

La la, la la la la la.
La la, la la la la la.

I don't care what you do at night,
Oh, and I don't care how you get your delights.
I'm gonna leave you alone, I'll just let it be,
I don't love you and you don't love me.

I got a problem. Can you relate?
I got a woman calling love hate.
We made a vow we'd always be friends.
How could we know that promises end?

La la, la la la la la.
La la, la la la la la.

I tried to love you for years upon years,
You refuse to take me for real.
It's time you saw what I want you to see,
And I'd still love you if you'd just love me.

Chorus

La la, la la la la la.
La la, la la la la la.
La la, la la la la la.
La la, la la la la la.back to top
Golden Ring
by Eric Clapton

He gave to you a golden ring;
It made you happy, it made you sing.
And I played for you on my guitar;
It didn't last long, it didn't go far.

And though the times have changed,
They're rearranged.
Will the ties that bind remain the same?

You came around after a while;
Everyone said that I made you smile.
It all went well, and suddenly then
You heard that he would marry you again.

Chorus

Well I know that I have been here before;
I've trod on your wings, I've opened the door.
If I gave to you a golden ring
Would I make you happy, would I make you sing?

Tulsa Time
by Danny Flowers

Well, I left Oklahoma
Driving in a Pontiac,
Just about to lose my mind.
I was going to Arizona,
Maybe on to California
Where people all live so fine.

My mother says I'm crazy,
My baby calls me lazy,
But I'm gonna show them all this time
'Cause you know I ain't no fool and
I don't need no more damn schoolin'.
I was born to just walk the line.

Living on Tulsa Time.
Living on Tulsa Time.
Gonna set my watch back to it
'Cause you know that I've been through it.
Living on Tulsa Time.

So there I was in Hollywood,
Thinking I was doing good,
Talking on the telephone line.
They don't want me in the movies
And nobody sings my songs;
My mama says my baby's doing fine.

So then I started winking,
Then I started thinking
That I really had a flash this time.
That I had no bussiness leaving,
And nobody would be grieving;
You see I'm on Tulsa time.
