Cocaine
By j. j. cale

If you wanna hang out you've got to take her out; cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues; cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on; cocaine.
Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.back to top
Wonderful Tonight
(by eric clapton)

It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you

It's time to go home now
And I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonightback to top
Lay Down Sally
By eric clapton, marcy levy and george terry

There is nothing that is wrong
In wanting you to stay here with me.
I know you've got somewhere to go,
But won't you make yourself at home and stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

The sun ain't nearly on the rise
And we still got the moon and stars above.
Underneath the velvet skies,
Love is all that matters. won't you stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

Chorus

I long to see the morning light
Coloring your face so dreamily.
So don't you go and say goodbye,
You can lay your worries down and stay with me.
And don't you ever leave.

Next Time You See Her
By eric clapton

She's got everything a man could ever ask for.
She is lovely, brighter than a morning star.
She is so beautiful, portrait of a sunset.
She got everything, including my old car.

Next time you see her, tell her that I love her.
Next time you see her, tell her that I care.
Next time you see her, tell her that I love her.
Next time I see you, boy you'd better beware.

I'm just trying to warn you that you're bound to get hurt.
I couldn't be her last love, so how could you be her first?
I want to tell you, buddy, things are bound to get rough.
I know that she's only flirting, but I think that I've had enough.

Chorus

And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.
And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.

Chorus

And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.
And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.

We're All the Way
By don williams

There's no cause to think that I won't stay;
Haven't I been with you all the way?
There's no time like now to make amends.
After all, we are more than friends.

This could be the time for you and me.
We could go wherever we should be.
So don't put words between us we shouldn't say,
And don't be acting halfway
When you know we're all the way.

There are times when I don't see the light.
I don't know if what I do is right.
But when I'm wrong, it's never meant for you,
So don't confuse my love with what I do.

The Core
By eric clapton and marcy levy

Every morning when I wake, a feeling soon begins to overtake me.
Ringing in my ears resounds through my brain; it finally surrounds me.
There is fire, there is life, there is passion, fever and fury.
There is love and there is hate, there is longing, anger and worry.

Oh, I am a flame; feel it touch my heart.
And down at my core is the hottest part.
I can run without fear.

If it should become too cold, I know I can endure the frostbite.
Oh, a blanket then I'll wrap around me; I keep myself so close to my sight.
No one then can cause me harm, just as the river runs into the sea.
'cause every day, a fire alarm is deafening the silence all around me.

Chorus

It is burning.
It is burning.

You can trust me; we can laugh. together we can share our sorrow.
I will give you secrets too, an attitude that you may borrow.
Gypsy woman said to me, one thing you must bear in your mind:
You are young and you are free, but damned if you're deceased in your own lifetime.

Oh, you have a flame; feel it in your heart.
And down at the core is the hottest part.
We can run without fear.

It is burning.
It is burning.back to top
May You Never
By john martyn

May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold.
May you never make your bed out in the cold.
May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a barroom fight.
May you never lose your woman overnight.

Well, you're just like a great, strong sister to me,
And I know that your love is true,
And you hold no blade for to stab me in my back;
I know that there's some that do.

So please, won't you please, won't you bear it in mind:
Love is a lesson to learn in our time.
Please, won't you please, bear it in mind for me.

Chorus

Well, you're just like a great, strong brother to me,
And I know that your love is true,
And you never talk dirty behind my back;
I know that there's some that do.

So please, won't you please, won't you bear it in mind:
Love is a lesson to learn in our time.
Please, won't you please, bear it in mind for me.

Chorus

May you never lose your woman overnight.
May you never lose your woman overnight.back to top

Well that mean old dirty frisco and that low down santa fe.
Mean old frisco and that low down santa fe.
