all Joe Cocker lyrics



Anybody Seen My Girl
None of my business, getting all of my concern
Tried to put out the fire, but the flame still burns
And as she pleases she comes and goes
She's got the wind in her hair
She never ceases to hurt me so

Does she really care?
Is she ever coming home?
Is she ever gonna phone?
Another night alone

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to me

Where am I going, oh what am I gonna do?
I know I'm not crazy, I'm just hooked on you
So go on and use me endlessly
Could you let me know
When you need me hold me close
And baby don't let go
Are you ever coming home?
Are you ever gonna phone?
Another night alone

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to me

Has anybody seen my girl?
Has anybody seen my woman?
California, Tennessee
Send my baby home to meback to top
Delta Lady
Woman of the country now I've found you
Longing in your soft and fertile delta.
And I whisper sighs to satisfy your longing
for the warmth and tender shelter of my body.
Oh you're my, yes you're my Delta Lady
Yes, you're my, me oh my, Delta Lady.

Please don't ask how many times I found you
Standing wet and naked in the garden.
And I think of days and diff'rent ways I held you,
Held you closely to me, yes our heart was beating.
Oh you're my .....

Oh, and I'm over here in England;
But I think of you, think about you ....
Because I love you,

There are concrete mountains in the city
And pretty city women live inside them.
And yet it seems the city scene is lacking.
I'm so glad you're waiting for me in the country.
Oh you're my ....back to top
Heart Full of Rain
(Tony Joe White/Michael Dan Ehmig)

A heart full of rain and memories
I'm feeling the strain and missing you so desperately
I need the shelter of your arms tonight oh baby,
I need you by my side

I don't know why things go the way they do
They just keep taking me down
I can't deny i'm so into you
And lost when your not around
If I could hold you
I could let go of the pain
But tonight i've got a heart full of rain

Unkind words blindly spoken faith was broken
And you walked away from the world
Our love has created hope has faded
Return your flame to this heart full of rain

A heart full of rain and memories
Love's not in vain even if you should say
You no longer need me
I'll keep believing until all thet remains
Is your memories and a heart full of rain
Your memory and a heart full of rainback to top
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
Baby, do you understand me now,
Sometimes I feel a little mad.
But, don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel.
When things go wrong I feel real bad.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree,
With a joy that's hard to hide.
And sometimes it seems that, all I have to do is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

If I seem edgy,
I want you to know,
That I never mean to take it out on you.

Life has its problems,
And I get my share,
And that's one thing I never mean to do,

'Cause I love you,
Oh,

Oh, oh, oh, baby - don't you know I'm human.
I have thoughts like any other one.
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regretting,
Some foolish thing - some little simple thing I've done.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Many Rivers to Cross
(Jimmy Cliff)

Many Rivers To Cross
But I Can'T Seem To Find My Way Over
Wandering I'M Lost
As I Travel Along The White Cliffs Of Dover

Many Rivers To Cross
And It'S Only My Will That Keeps Me Alive
I'Ve Been Ripped, Washed Up For Years
And I Merely Survive Because Of My Pride

And This Loneliness Won'T Leave Me Alone
It'S Such A Drag To Be On Your Own
My Women Left Me But She Wouldn'T Say Why
Guess I'Ll Just Break Right Down And Cry

Many Rivers To Cross
But Just Where To Begin
I'M Playing For Time
There'Ve Been Times I Find Myself
Thinking Of Committing Some Terrible Crime

Still This Loneliness Won'T Leave Me Alone
It'S Such A Drag To Be On Your Own
My Girl Left Me But She Wouldn'T Say Why
Guess I'Ll Just Break Right Down And Cry

Many Rivers To Cross
But I Can'T Seem To Find My Way Over
Wandering I Am Lost
As I Travel Along The White Cliffs Of Dover

Many Rivers To Cross
And It'S Only My Will That Keeps Me Alive
I'Ve Been Ripped, Washed Up For Years
And I Merely Survive Because Of My Prideback to top
Sail Away
In America you'll get food to eat
Won't have to run through the jungle
And scuff up your feet
You'll just sing about Jesus and drink wine all day
It's great to be an American

Ain't no lions or tigers-ain't no mamba snake
Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake
Ev'rybody is as happy as a man can be
Climb aboard, little wog-sail away with me

Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

In America every man is free
To take care of his home and his family
You'll be as happy as a monkey in a monkey tree
You're all gonna be an American

Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bayback to top
You and I
(Stevie Wonder)

Here we are on earth together,
It's you and I,
God has made us fall in love, it's true,
I've really found someone like you

Will it say the love you feel for me, will it say,
That you will be by my side
To see me through,
Until my life is through

Well, in my mind, we can conquer the world,
In love you and I, you and I, you and I

I am glad at least in my life I found someone
That may not be here forever to see me through,
But I found strength in you,
I only pray that I have shown you a brighter day,
Because that's all that I am living for, you see,
Don't worry what happens to me

Cause' in my mind, you will stay here always,
In love, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
In my mind we can conquer the world
In love, you and I, you and I, you and Iback to top
Darling Be Home Soon
(Sebastian)

Come
And talk of all the things we did today
Here
And laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
Then I know that it's time you must leave

But darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

And now
A quarter of my life is almost past
I think I've come to see myself at last
And I see that the time spent confused
Was the time that I spent without you
And I feel myself in bloom

So darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

[Instrumental break]

Darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Go
And beat your crazy head against the sky
Try
And see beyond the houses and your eyes
It's ok to shoot the moon

So darling
My darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk toback to top
Dignity
(Dylan)

Fat man lookin' in a blade of steel
Thin man lookin' at his last meal
Hollow man lookin' in a cottonfield
For dignity

Wise man lookin' in a blade of grass
Young man lookin' in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin' through painted glass
For dignity

Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
I went into the city, went into the town
Went into the land of the midnight sun

Searchin' high, searchin' low
Searchin' everywhere I know
Askin' the cops wherever I go
Have you seen dignity?

Blind man breakin' out of a trance
Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance
Hopin' to find one circumstance
Of dignity

I went to the wedding of Mary-lou
She said 'I don't want nobody see me talkin' to you"
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
About dignity

I went down where the vultures feed
I would've got deeper, but there wasn't any need
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men
Wasn't any difference to me

Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade
House on fire, debts unpaid
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
Have you seen dignity?

Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
Lookin' into the lost forgotten years
For dignity

Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
Said he'd give me information if his name wasn't used
He wanted money up front, said he was abused
By dignity

Footprints runnin' cross the silver sand
Steps goin' down into tattoo land
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light
In the bordertowns of despair

Got no place to fade, got no coat
I'm on the rollin' river in a jerkin' boat
Tryin' to read a note somebody wrote
About dignity

Sick man lookin' for the doctor's cure
Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature
for dignity

Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within
For dignity

Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
Dignity never been photographed
I went into the red, went into the black
Into the valley of dry bone dreams

So many roads, so much at stake
So many dead ends, I'm at the edge of the lake
Sometimes I wonder what it's gonna take
To find dignityback to top
You Can Leave Your Hat On
Baby, take off your coat...real slow
Baby, take off your shoes...here, I'll take your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Go on over there and turn on the light...no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair...that's right
Raise your arms up in to the air...shake 'em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live

Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
I know what love isback to top
You Are So Beautiful
You are so beautiful
To me
You are so beautiful
To me
Can't you see
You're everything I hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful

Can't Find My Way Home
(Steve Winwood)

Come down off your throne and leave your body alone.
Somebody must change.
You are the reason I've been waiting so long.
Somebody holds the key.

[Chorus:]
But I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home.

Come down on your own and leave your body alone.
Somebody must change.
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years.
Somebody holds the key.

[Chorus]

But I can't find my way home.
But I can't find my way home.
But I can't find my way home.
But I can't find my way home.
Still I can't find my way home,
And I ain't done nothing wrong,
But I can't find my way home.back to top
