Riding With the King
I dreamt I had a good job and I got well paid, I blew it all at the
candy arcade, I had a dollar from the cupid doll, no painted chick is
gonna make me crawl

And from the tea of the wave to the promise land every woman,
child and man needs a catalack and a great big diamond ring,
don't you know your riding with the king?

Hes on a mission to mercy to the new frontier,
hes gonna take us all out of here.
Up to the mansion on the hill where you can get your prescription pill
(anytime folks)

And from the tea of the wave to the promise land every woman,
child and man needs a catalack and a great big diamond ring,
don't you know your riding with the king?

I stepped out of Mississippi when I was ten years old with a suit cut sharp as a razor
and a heart made of gold I had it hanging to about waist high and
Im gonna play this thing until the day I die.back to top
Ten Long Years
(Riley B. King and Jules Bihari)

Well, I had a woman,
She was nice, kind and loving to me in every way.
Oh, I had a woman,
She was kind and loving to me in every way.
Oh, she used to love me
And bring my breakfast to the bed every day.

Oh, for ten long years,
She was my pride and joy.
Oh, for ten long years,
She was my pride and joy.
I used to call her my little girl.
Oh, she used to call me, she used to call me her little boy.

Oh, it's all over baby.
You know I'm all alone.
It's all over baby.
Babe you know I'm all alone.
Well, the reason you hear me singing the blues, baby,
Yeah, you know my baby's gone, she's gone, she's gone.back to top
Key to the Highway
(by charles segar and willie broonzy)

I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running;
Walking is most too slow.

I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
You know you haven't done nothing,
Drove a good man away from home.

Live verse: when the moon peeks over the mountains
I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this old highway
Until the break of day.

Oh give me one, one more kiss mama
Just before I go,
'cause when I leave this time you know i,
I won't be back no more.

Marry You
From: TabbersTemple.com
by Doyle Bramhall II, Susannah Melvoin and Craig Ross

It's the sugar so sweet,
Kind I'd like to meet
You at midnight
And tell no one else about it.


I'm going to make you mine
'Cause I know we've got the time
Now and then, baby.
Hey, I want you to know,


I want to marry you.
Isn't that what you want, too?
I want to marry you.
Isn't that what you want, too?


Come on in the back of the '57.
Let me show you the way, the way to heaven.
You're looking so sweet, yes you are.
I'm sure that you've got some heat.


I've got you on my mind
You know you've got my time
Now and then, baby.
Hey, I want you to know,


Chorus

I'm falling in love with you.
You make all my dreams come true.
I'm falling in love with you.

Three O'Clock Blues
(Riley B. King and Jules Bihari)

Well now, it's three o'clock in the morning
And I can't even close my eyes.
Three o'clock in the morning
And I can't even close my eyes.
Can't find my baby
And I can't be satisfied.

I've looked all around me
And my baby, she can't be found.
I've looked all around me, people,
And my baby, she can't be found.
You know if I don't find my baby,
People, I'm going down to the golden ground.

Goodbye everybody,
I believe this is the end.
Oh, goodbye everybody,
I believe this is the end.
I want you to tell my baby,
Tell her please, please forgive me,
Forgive me for my sins.back to top
Help the Poor
(Charles Singleton)

Help the poor,
Won't you help poor me?
I need help from you, baby,
Need it desperately.
I need you so much, I need your care,
Need all the loving, baby, you can spare.
Help the poor,
Oh baby, won't you help poor me?

Say you will,
Say you'll help me on.
I can't make it no longer
In this world alone.
Baby, I'm begging with tears in my eyes
For your love, don't you realize
I need help.
Oh baby, help poor me.

You are my inspiration,
Baby, that make me be a king,
But if you don't come to my rescue,
I couldn't ever be anything.

Help the poor,
Won't you help poor me?
Have a heart, won't you baby?
Listen to my plea.
Oh, I lost my courage till I found you.
You've got what it takes, baby, to pull me through.
Help the poor,
Oh baby, won't you help poor me?

[Chorus]

I Wanna Be
(Doyle Bramhall II and Charlie Sexton)

I wander helplessly day by day.
It's so much easier to run away.
My mind is spent, my body sold,
Never knowing which way to go

I'm always there for you baby,
Won't you let me see
If we can get closer.
Every day,

[Chorus:]
I wanna be felt by you.
I wanna be touched by you.
I wanna be loved by you.
I wanna be anything you want me to.

Don't mean nothing when you're growing old.
Nobody knows what the future holds.
I am left with a bitter taste,
Torn away from that beautiful chase.

I'm always there for you baby,
Won't you let me see
If we can get closer.
Every day,

[Chorus 3x]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.back to top
Days of Old
(Riley B. King and Jules Bihari)

Way back yonder in the days of old,
The men was working but not saving any dough.
Then came a woman looking real cool.
She said to herself, "Now that's my fool."

[Chorus:]
I'm gonna ball tonight.
I'm gonna ball tonight.
Well, I can't break the rule because
Every man is some woman's fool.

Met a girl on the avenue,
She was shy and I was blue,
Like a teacher and a student in school,
Looked at me and said, "You're my fool."

[Chorus]

[Repeat First Verse]

[Chorus]

We're gonna ball tonight.
We're gonna ball tonight.
We're gonna ball tonight.
We're gonna ball tonight.
Well I can't break the rule because
Every man is some woman's fool.back to top
When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer
(Riley B. King and Jules Bihari)

When my heart starts beating like a hammer
And my eyes get full of tears,
Oh, when my heart starts beating like a hammer
And my eyes get full of tears,
You know you've only been gone 24 hours, baby,
Oh, but it seems like, it seems like a million years.

Now if I ever mistreated you baby,
You know I didn't mean no harm.
Oh, if I ever mistreated you baby,
God knows I didn't mean no harm.
You know, I'm just a little country boy, baby,
And I was raised right down on the cotton farm.

Oh, you give me so much trouble, baby,
Babe, that I don't know what to do.
Oh, you give me so much trouble, baby,
Baby, I don't know, I don't know what to do.
Oh, I ain't got nothing, I ain't got nothing now, baby,
Babe, and it's all on, it's all on account of you.back to top
Come Rain or Come Shine
(Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen)

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you,
Come rain or come shine.
High as a mountain and deep as a river,
Come rain or come shine.

Well I guess when you met me
That it was just one of those things,
But don't you ever bet me,
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me.

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me,
Come rain or come shine.
Happy together, unhappy together,
Won't that be fine?

Day may be cloudy or sunny,
We're either in or we're out of the money.
I'm with you always.
I'm with you rain or shine.

[Repeat Third Verse]

[Repeat Fourth Verse]

I'm with you always.
I'm with you rain or shine.back to top
