Beautiful Thing
by Richard Manuel and Rick Danko

I've told you once, now you should know
The reason that I'm coming down.
There ain't no time to repeat again;
Just need to bring it around.

We had a beautiful thing going,
You couldn't see things my way.
We had a beautiful thing going,
Something just got in our way.

And I told you once that it was rough.
I looked on you as my friend,
Because that did not seem to be good enough,
And now it's time to begin.

We've got a beautiful thing going,
I hope that's the way it will stay.
We've got a beautiful thing going,
Nothing can stand in our way.

Carnival
by Eric Clapton

Come with me, come with me,
To the carnival, to the carnival.

You will see, you will see,
What you want to see, exactly what you want to be,
At the carnival, at the carnival, at the carnival.

Come with me, come with me,
To the carnival, to the carnival,
To the carnival, to the carnival, to the carnival.

Come with me, come with me.
Come with me, come with me.back to top
Sign Language
by Bob Dylan

You speak to me in sign language,
As I'm eating a sandwich in a small cafe
At a quarter to three.

But I can't respond to your sign language.
You're taking advantage, bringing me down.
Can't you make any sound?

'Twas there by the bakery, surrounded by fakery.
This is my story, still I'm still there.
Does she know I still care?

Link Wray was playing on a jukebox, I was paying
For the words I was saying, so misunderstood.
He didn't do me no good.

County Jail Blues
by Alfred Fields

They picked me up, put me in the county jail.
They picked me up, put me in the county jail.
They wouldn't let my woman come and post my bail.

Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time.
Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time.
They gave me six months, I had to work out nine.

I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout.
I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout.
When the train comes in and I come walking out.

Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs.
Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs.
The stripes don't hurt me; the chains could kill me dead.back to top
All Our Past Times
by Eric Clapton and Rick Danko

I don't want to be the one to say I'm sorry.
I don't want to be the one to take the blame.
I don't want to be the one to throw it over.
I don't want to be the one to feel ashamed.

I don't want to be the one who thinks of nothing.
I don't want to be the one to tell you what you have seen.
After all this time, well I thought that you were mine.
I just want to be the one who would share this dream.

All our past times should be forgotten.
All our past times should be erased.
I don't care how much it costs;
'Cause I don't count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.

You don't have to tell me when you're leaving,
If it's half past one, if it's maybe four.
It makes no difference where you think you're going,
But please remember not to slam the door.

Chorus

Yes, I don't care how much it costs;
You know I don't count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.back to top
Hello Old Friend
by Eric Clapton

As I am strolling down the garden path,
I saw a flower glowing in the dark.
It looked so pretty and it was unique;
I had to bend down just to have a peek.

Hello old friend,
It's really good to see you once again.
Hello old friend,
It's really good to see you once again.

I saw you walking underneath the stars;
I couldn't stop 'cause I was in a car.
I'm sure the distance wouldn't be too far
If I got out and walked to where you are.

Chorus

An old man passed me on the street today;
I thought I knew him but I couldn't say.
I stopped to think if I could place his frame.
When he tipped his hat I knew his name.

Double Trouble
by Otis Rush

Lay awake at night,
Oh so low, just so troubled.
Can't get a job,
Laid off and I'm having double trouble.

Hey hey, to make you've got to try.
Baby, that's no lie.
Some of this generation is millionaires;
I can't even keep decent clothes to wear.

Laugh at me walking,
And I have no place to go.
Bad luck and trouble has taken me;
I have no money to show.

Innocent Times
by Eric Clapton and Marcy Levy

I was a child born so free;
It seems that time has put age on me.
And when I grow old, will I once again find
All of those sweet, innocent times?

I was a child born without fear;
It seems that time has placed me here.
With no freedom to laugh, there's more reason to cry.
I really miss those innocent times.

I used to feel joy in my soul,
But now my sorrow has taken control.
As I look around I pray, Lord be kind;
Just one more taste of those innocent times.

As I look around I pray, Lord be kind;
Just one more taste of those innocent times,
Just one more taste of those innocent times.back to top
Hungry
by Dick Simms and Marcy Levy
.
Last night as I stepped into the stage lights,
I heard the people cry when they saw my face.
There's nothing like our hearts beating in time.
The crowd may inspire, but you give me my strength.

Oh, hungry, I'm hungry, I'm hungry for your sweet smile.
Lonely, I'm lonely, I'm lonely, I need to hold you for a while.

I've been slipping into desperation;
You're the only salvation that the Lord designed.
Your absence is controlling my defenses.
My life is senseless without you by my side.

Chorus

Chorus

Loose ladies on the road will drive you crazy.
Every "no" becomes a "maybe", it never takes too long.
Missing you, I don't know what I'm gonna do.
You don't know what I'm going through; everything seems wrong.

Black Summer Rain
by Eric Clapton

Where is the sun,
The sun that used to shine on me?
Where has it gone
Or is it just a memory?

I looked through the window,
Staring at the sky,
Waiting for a moment
That always passed me by.

Black summer rain,
Black summer rain,
Black summer rain is falling on me, girl.

Where is the love,
The love I need to set me free?
And how can I escape
This gloom that is swallowing me?

Chorus

Last Night
by Eric Clapton

Last night, I lost the best friend I ever had.
Last night, I lost the best friend I ever had.
She's gone away and left me; that makes me feel so bad.

It's early in the morning and my love is coming down to you.
It's early in the morning and my love is coming down to you.
I'll love you, love you, baby, till I don't know what to do.

Last night, I lost the best friend I ever had.
Last night, I lost the best friend I ever had.
Now you've gone away and left me; that makes me feel so bad.back to top
