Ramble Tamble
Chorus:
Move,
Down the road
I go.

Chorus

There's mud in the water,
Roach in the cellar,
Bugs in the sugar,
Mortgage on the home,
Mortgage on the home.

There's garbage on the sidewalk,
Highways in the back yard,
Police on the corner,
Mortgage on the car,
Mortgage on the car.

Chorus

They're selling independence,
Actors in the white house,
Acid in digestion,
Mortgage on my life,
Mortgage on my life.

Chorus

Before You Accuse Me
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
You say I've been buyin' another woman clothes,
But you've been talkin' to someone else.

I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago.
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago.
Your mama said, son,
Don't call my daughter no more.

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
You say I've been buyin' another woman clothes,
But you've been takin' money from someone else.

Come on back home, baby; try my love one more time.
Come on back home, baby; try my love one more time.
You've been gone away so long,
I'm just about to lose my mind.

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself.
You say I've been buyin' another woman clothes,
But you've been talkin' to someone else.back to top
Travelin' Band
Seven thirty seven comin' out of the sky.
Oh! won't you take me down to memphis on a midnight ride,
I wanna move.

Chorus:
Playin' in a travelin' band. yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, try'in' to get a hand,
Playin' in a travelin' band.

Take me to the hotel, baggage gone, oh, well.
Come on, come on, won't you get me to my room,
I wanna move.

Chorus

Listen to the radio, talkin' 'bout the last show.
Someone got excited, had to call the state militia,
Wanna move.

Chorus

Oh! wow!

Here we come again on a saturday night
Oh with your fussin' and a fightin'
Won't you get me to the rhyme,
I wanna move.

Chorus

Oh! wow!

Oh! I'm playin' in a travelin' band;
Playin' in a travelin' band.
Won't you get me, take me hand
Well, I'm playin' in a travelin' band,
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land.
Tryin' to get a hand,
Playin' in a travelin' band, oh! wow!

Ooby Dooby
Hey baby, jump over here;
When you do the ooby dooby I gotta be there;

Chorus:
Ooby dooby, ooby dooby, ooby dooby, ooby dooby,
Ooby dooby ooby dooby ooby dooby
Ooby doo wah, doo wah, doo wah, doo wah.

Well, you wiggle to the left, you wiggle to the right;
You do the ooby dooby with all your might;

Well, you wiggle an' you shake like a big rattlesnake;
You do the ooby dooby till you think you're gonna break.

How to do the ooby dooby, baby, let's go.

Lookin' Out My Back Door
Just got home from illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singin',

Chorus:
Doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.

There's a giant doing cartwheels, a statue wearin' high heels.
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
A dinosaur victrola list'ning to buck owens.

Chorus

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo doo.
Wond'rous apparition provided by magician.

Chorus

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo doo.
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.

Chorus

Forward troubles illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.

Run Through the Jungle
Whoa, thought it was a nightmare,
Lo, it's all so true,
They told me, don't go walkin' slow
'cause devil's on the loose.

Chorus:
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, don't look back to see.

Thought I heard a rumblin'
Callin' to my name,
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, take aim!

Chorus

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke,
Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill the land with smoke.

Up Around the Bend
There's a place up ahead and I'm goin' just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you're goin', leave the sinkin' ship behind.

Chorus:
Come on the risin' wind, we're goin' up around the bend.

Ooh!
Bring a song and a smile for the banjo, better get while the gettin's good,
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway where the neons turn to wood.

Chorus

Oooh!
You can ponder perpetual motion, fix your mind on a crystal day,
Always time for a good conversation, there's an ear for what you say.

Chorus
Yeah!

Oooh!
Catch a ride to the end of the highway and we'll meet by the big red tree,
There's a place up ahead and I'm goin', come along, come along with me.

Chorus

Yeah!
Do do doo do...back to top
My Baby Left Me
Yes, my baby left me, never said a word.
Was it something I done, something that she heard?
You know she left me, my baby left me.
My baby even left me, never said a word.

But, I stand at my window, wring my hands and cry.
I hate to lose that woman, hate to say goodbye.
You know she left me, I say, she left me.
My baby even left me, never said goodbye.
Help me, boy!

And now, one of these mornings, lord, it won't be long,
You'll look for me and, baby, daddy he'll be gone.
You know she left me, I say she left me.
My baby even left me, never said a word.

Now, I stand at my window, wring my hands and moan.
All I know is that the one I love is gone.
My baby left me, I say she left me.
My baby even left me, never said goodbye.
My baby even left me, never said goodbye.back to top
Who'll Stop the Rain
Long as I remember the rain been comin' down.
Clouds of myst'ry pourin' confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, tryin' to find the sun;
And I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain.

I went down virginia, seekin' shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playin', how we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together, tryin' to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pourin', fallin' on my ears.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain.back to top
I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Oo, bet you're wond'ring how I knew 'bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy that you knew before?
Between the two of us guys, you know I love you more.
It took me by surprise, I must say, when I found out yesterday. oo,

Chorus:
I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be mine.
Oo, I heard it through the grapevine, and I'm just about to lose my mind.
Honey, honey yeah.

You know that a man ain't supposed to cry, but these tears I can't hold inside.
Losin' you would end my life you see, 'cause you mean that much to me.
You could have told me yourself that you found someone else.
Instead,

Chorus

People say you hear from what you see, na na not from what you hear.
I can't help bein' confused; if it's true, won't you tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go for the other guy that you knew before? oo,

Long as I Can See the Light
Put a candle in the window, 'cause I feel I've got to move.
Though I'm going, going, I'll be coming home soon,
'long as I can see the light.

Pack my bag and let's get movin', 'cause I'm bound to drift a while.
When I'm gone, gone, you don't have to worry long,
'long as I can see the light.

Guess I've got that old trav'lin' bone, 'cause this feelin' won't leave me alone.
But I won't, won't be losin' my way, no, no
'long as I can see the light.

Yeah! yeah! yeah! oh, yeah!

Put a candle in the window, 'cause I feel I've got to move.
Though I'm going, going, I'll be coming home soon,
Long as I can see the light.
Long as I can see the light.
Long as I can see the light.
Long as I can see the light.
Long as I can see the light.back to top
