32-20
by (unknown)

I walked all night long with my 32-20 in my hand.
I walked all night long with my 32-20 in my hand.
Looking for my woman, well I found her with another man.

When I found that woman, they were walking hand in hand.
When I found that woman, they were walking hand in hand.
Well it did surprise me when I found her with another man.

She started screaming murder and I had never raised my hand.
She started screaming murder and I had never raised my hand.
Well she knew that I had them covered, I had the stuff right there in my hand.

I ain't no bully, I don't go with the baddest man in town.
I ain't no bully, I don't go with the baddest man in town.
When I catch a man with my woman, I usually tear his playhouse down.back to top
Comin' Home
by Bonnie Bramlett and Eric Clapton

Been out on the road 'bout six months too long.
I want you so bad, I can hardly stand it.
I'm so tired and I'm all alone.
We'll soon be together and that's it;
I'm comin' home to your love.

Hitchhiking on the turnpike all day long.
Nobody seemed to notice, they just pass me over.
To keep from going crazy, I got to sing my song.
Got a whole lot of loving and baby, that's why
I'm comin' home to your love.back to top
Further On Up The Road
by Joe Medwich Veasey and Don D. Robey

Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road, baby, just you wait and see.

You gotta reap just what you sow; that old saying is true.
You gotta reap just what you sow; that old saying is true.
Just like you mistreat someone, someone's gonna mistreat you.

You been laughing, pretty baby, someday you're gonna be crying.
You been laughing, pretty baby, someday you're gonna be crying.
Further on up the road you'll find out I wasn't lying.

Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road, baby, just you wait and see.back to top
Got To Get Better In A Little While
by Eric Clapton

Don't you know what's wrong with me?
I'm seeing things I don't want to see.
Sniffing things that ain't no good for me.
I'm going down fast, won't you say a prayer for me?

It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.
It's got to get better in a little while.

The sun's got to shine on my guitar someday.

Revolution all across the land.
Just like Sly, you got to take a stand.
Please don't hurt nobody, don't knock them down;
Give them a helping hand to get off the ground.

Chorus

The sun's got to shine on my guitar someday.

Still one thing that you can do;
Fall down on your knees and pray.
I know the Lord's gonna answer you.
Don't do it tomorrow, do it today.

Rambling On My Mind
by Robert Johnson

I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind.
I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind.
I hates to leave my baby, but she treats me so unkind.

I got mean things, I got mean things all on my mind.
I got mean things, I got mean things all on my mind.
I hates to leave my baby, but she treats me so unkind.

I'm going down to the station, catch the fastest train I see.
I'm going down to the station, catch the fastest train I see.
I got the blues 'bout miss so-and-so, and her son's got the blues about me.

I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind.
I got rambling, I got rambling all on my mind.
I hates to leave my baby, but she treats me so unkind.back to top
Roll It Over
by Eric Clapton and Bobby Whitlock

Go down easy and let me take my time.
Go down easy and let me take my time.
Rock me slow till I lose my mind.

Roll it over, let's take it from behind.
Roll it over, let's take it from behind.
It's only love, God knows it ain't no crime.

You don't know how much it means to be here in your arms.
Roll it over.
Roll it over.

Setting Me Up
by Mark Knopfler

You say I'm the greatest and bound for glory.
Well the word is out and I learned.
I got the latest side of the story;
You're pulling out before you get burned.

Well your hands are squeezing me down to the bone.
I never saw you breaking no law.
Stands to reason I've got to leave you alone.
What are you taking me for?

Setting me up to put me down.
Making me out to be your clown.
Setting me up to put me down.
You better give it up, baby,
Quit your messing around.

You think I care about your reaction,
You think I don't understand.
All you wanted was a piece of the action,
Now you talk about another man.

Smile
by Chaplin, Parsons and Phillips

Smile, though your heart is aching.
Smile, even though it's breaking.
Though there are clouds in the sky, you get by...

If you smile through your fears and sorrows.
Smile and repeat tomorrow.
You'll see the sun come shining through.

If you just light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever, ever so near.

That's the time you must keep on trying.
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find life is still worthwhile
If you'll just smile, come on and smile.

If you just smile.back to top
Worried Life Blues
by Maceo Merryweather

Oh lordy lord, oh lordy lord.
It hurts me so bad for us to part.
But someday baby,
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

You're on my mind every place I go.
How much I love you, nobody know.
Yeah, someday babe,
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So many days since you went away.
I've had to worry both night and day.
Yeah, but someday babe,
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So many nights since you've been gone.
I've been worried, grieving my life alone.
Yeah, but someday babe,
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So that's my story and this is all I've got to say to you:
Bye bye, baby, I don't care what you do.
'Cause someday darling,
I won't have to worry my life any more.

Oh lordy lord, oh lordy lord.
It hurts me so bad for us to part.
Oh, but someday baby,
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door
by Bob Dylan

Ma, take this badge off of me.
I can't use it any more.
It's getting dark, too dark to see.
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door.
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door.
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door.
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door.

Ma, take these guns away from me.
I can't shoot them any more.
There's a long black cloud following me.
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Too Bad
by Eric Clapton

It's too bad I don't love you, for you have worried me night and day.
It's too bad I don't love you, for you have worried me night and day.
Till my heart begins to stammer and my hair is turning gray.

It's too bad I don't need you, because we get along so good.
It's too bad I don't need you, because we get along so good.
You must be thinking by this time that my poor heart is made of wood.

It's too bad I don't miss you, 'cause you are always on my mind.
It's too bad I don't miss you, 'cause you are always on my mind.
I want to stay around your circle and learn to love you all the time.

Help Me Up
by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Are you going to help me or will you let me down?
I'm looking for a true love but am I lost or found?
And will we cry in passion or will we cry in pain?
And will our lonely teardrops fill the world with rain?

Help me up, don't you let me down.
I'm gonna wake up in heaven, not the cold, cold ground.

Can't you hear the lovers crying in the night?
They spend their whole lives trying; still can't get it right.
I don't know where we're going but I guess we'll start
And just to show that I mean it, baby here's my heart.

Chorus

Living on my feelings, feelings all I know.
Baby once we touch it, we'll never let it go.

It's Probably Me
by Sting, Michael Kamen and Eric Clapton

If the night turned cold and the stars looked down
And you hug yourself on the cold cold ground.
You wake the morning in a stranger's coat,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who'd watch for me?
My only friend, who could it be?
It's hard to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

When your belly's empty and the hunger's so real
And you're too proud to beg and too dumb to steal,
You search the city for your only friend,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who'd watch for me?
A solitary voice to speak out and set me free.
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

You're not the easiest person I ever got to know
And it's hard for us both to let our feelings show.
Some would say I should let you go your way,
You'll only make me cry.
But if there's one guy, just one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

When the world's gone crazy and it makes no sense
And there's only one voice that comes to your defense.
The jury's out and your eyes search the room
And one friendly face is all you need to see.
And if there's one guy, just one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...back to top
Tears In Heaven
by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand if I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand if I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven.

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven.

First Verse

My Father's Eyes
by Eric Clapton

Sailing down behind the sun, waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain to restore my soul again.
Just a toerag on the run. How did I get here? What have I done?
When will all my hopes arrive?
How will I know him? When I look in my father's eyes.

Then the light begins to shine and I hear those ancient lullabys.
And as I watched this seedling grow, feel my heart start to overflow
When will I learn the words to say? How do I teach him? What do we play?
If I did, I'd realize
That's when I need him, that's when I need my father's eyes.

Were you really so far away?
Were you really so far away?
Were you really so far away?
Were you really so far away?

Then the jagged edge appears through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that has washed away; my foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die. How could I lose him? What did I try?
If I did, I'd recognize
He was here with me; I'd looked into my father's eyes.

As my soul slides down to die. How could I lose him? What did I try?
If I did, I'd recognize
He was here with me; I'd looked into my father's eyes.back to top

The Circus Left Town
by Eric Clapton

Little man with his eyes on fire and his smile so bright.
In his hands are the toys you gave to fill his heart with delight.
And in the ring stands a circus clown holding up a light.
What you see and what you will hear will last you the rest of your life.

And it's sad, so sad, there ain't no easy way round,
And it's sad, so sad, all you friends gather round,
'Cause the circus left town.

Little man with his heart so pure and his love so fine.
Stick with me and I'll ride with you till the end of the line.
Hold my hand and I'll walk with you through the darkest night.
When I smile I'll be thinking of you and everything will be all right.
