Bad Boy
By bonnie bramlett and eric clapton

I'm just a bad boy, long long ways from home.
I'm just a bad boy, long long ways from home.
But I ain't got nobody to bury me when I'm dead and gone.

Well I'm the cat that scratches and I'm like a dog that bites.
I'll be your box of matches, baby, when you need a light.

Chorus

I used to have a little girl, only 16 years old,
But her mom and dad put me way out, way out in the cold.
I can't stay here no longer, my luck is running slow.
Gotta keep on moving but I ain't got no place to go.

Lonesome and a Long Way from Home
(by bonnie bramlett and leon russell)

Out on an open highway,
Such a lovely day but something's wrong.
Something, something's gotta be wrong.

I just left home this morning,
This old road keeps rolling on and on.
Rolling, rolling on and on.

Won't somebody help me?
Won't somebody help me?
Won't somebody help me?
I've never been so lonesome and long way from home,
Never been lonesome and long way,
Never been lonesome and long way from home.

After Midnight
By j. j. cale

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

After midnight, we're gonna shake your tambourine.
After midnight, it's all gonna be peaches and cream.
We're gonna cause talk and suspicion;
We're gonna give an exhibition.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

Second verse

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.back to top
Easy Now
By eric clapton

Holding you, you holding me,
Everyone could see we were in ecstasy.
Making love against the wall,
Feeling very small when we didn't need to be.

Easy now; don't let my love flow out of you.
Please remember that I want you to come too.

Oh my darling, help me please.
When I'm without you I fall down and graze my knees.
I look so funny and I feel sad,
Your love is all I've ever had, so please don't tease.

Chorus

Yesterday, you know tomorrow,
Could it be I'll have to borrow someone new?
I know that I'm the one to blame,
But all the same, there must be something you can do.

Blues Power
(by eric clapton and leon russell)

Bet you didn't think I knew how to rock 'n' roll.
Oh, I got the boogie-woogie right down in my very soul.
There ain't no need for me to be a wallflower,
'cause now I'm living on blues power.

I knew all the time but now I'm gonna let you know:
I'm gonna keep on rocking, no matter if it's fast or slow.
Ain't gonna stop until the twenty-fifth hour,
'cause now I'm living on blues power.

First verse

Talking to you, now.
The boogie's gonna pull me through.
Keep on, keep on, keep on keeping on.
Keep on keeping on, keep on keeping on.back to top
Bottle of Red Wine
(by bonnie bramlett and eric clapton)

Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
I can't get up out of bed
With this crazy feeling in my head.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.

Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
You hear what I say?
Gonna love you anyway.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.

I went to an all-night get together
And everyone I knew was there.
Had the love that would last forever.
Everywhere I looked, I saw you standing there.

Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
I can't get up out of bed
With this crazy feeling in my head.
I said get up right now, oh oh.
I said get up right now.
Feel so bad this morning; got a terrible headache in my head.
Do me a favor, baby, do me a favor please.
Please get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up, get up; get your man a big big bottle of red wine.back to top
Lovin' You, Lovin' Me
By bonnie bramlett and eric clapton

I am so in love for once in my life.
In my dreams, I've known you many times before.
And I so want you to be my dear wife,
As only you can satisfy me any more,
And only you can love me more.

I'm lovin' you lovin' me lovin' you.
It's all the same; when loving, two together makes one.
Everybody sing la, la la la, la la la, la la la.
It's all the same, and we are one.

I will give you a world of your dreams if you want them.
I can feel the power when you're standing there.
Someone sent me you; oh lord, I will thank him,
And all the rest, it just don't matter,
And all the rest and all the rest.

Chorus

Loving you.
You know I love you.back to top
Told You for the Last Time
By bonnie bramlett and steve cropper

Well, I've told you for the last time,
Told you for the last time.

I'm gonna turn on my love light,
Let it shine one more time,
Let it shine, shine, shine for the last time.

There's gonna be a big change made, and I'm gonna make it.
This time I'm gonna lay it on the line.
I got a lot to give when you're woman enough to take it, oh yeah.

Chorus

I sure want to love you baby, baby if you'd only let me.
You only pick me up just to put me down.
I finally let my mind make a decision, oh yeah.

I'm gonna start my wheels a-spinnin',
Let 'em turn one more time,
Let 'em turn, oh yeah, for the last time.

Don't Know Why
By bonnie bramlett and eric clapton

You say you want everything good for me,
But I know so well, I can tell when you're lying.
Making believe you're looking up to me,
And I'm just sitting here, crying.

And I don't know why,
I don't know why,
I don't know why I don't care.

You'll go on back to him, he'll take you in.
I know he's gonna love you, but I still want you back again,
'cause baby you're part of me, it's deep inside of you.
When he's done all he can, you'll come running to your other man, oh yeah.

Chorus

I know you won't soon forget last night.
Your precious love was all over me, but it's all right.
Go on and try again but you know nothing's gonna change.
That's the way it's gonna be, oh yeah.

Let It Rain
By bonnie bramlett and eric clapton

The rain is falling through the mist of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away the the bliss that lays around me.

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Her life was like a desert flower burning in the sun.
Until I found the way to love, it's harder said than done.

Chorus

Now I know the secret; there is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you, you'll surely give it back.
