Song for Our Ancestors

Dear Mary
(Steve Miller)

Dear Mary
Thank you for the day
We shared together

Had there been another day
Another way to tell you I need you, I need you
Had there been another day

Dear Mary
Thank you for the day
We shared together

Deep in my heart I am waiting
I'm waiting for you
Deep in my heart I am waiting
What else can I do
Waiting, waiting for youback to top
My Friend
(Tim Davis and Boz Scaggs)

So you think you know just what goes on inside your head, my friend
There is so much more than you and I can comprehend
Things that make you laugh, things that make you cry
Let you love when you feel like you wanna die

There's no answer to the questions that we find inside, my friend
But when we start to wonder why, we wind up further behind, my friend
All we see has always been shown
But there's so many things that I've never known

So you think you know, my friend
But you don't know, my friend, my friend
You think you know
But you don't know

All for one and one for all
It's everything or nothing at all
Listen, my friend
You don't know
No, my friend
You don't knowback to top

Quicksilver Girl
(Steve Miller)

She's a quicksilver girl
A lover of the world
She spreads her wings
And she's free

She's a quicksilver girl
A lover of the world
She's seen every branch
On the tree

Ah, ah, quicksilver girl
Ah, ah, quicksilver girl
Ah, ah, quicksilver girl
Ah, ah, quicksilver girl

Ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh
If you need a little lovin'
She'll turn on the heat
If you take a fall
She'll put you back on your feet
If you're all alone
She's someone to meet
If you need someone

She's a quicksilver girl
A lover of the world
She spreads her wings
And she's freeback to top
Lucky Man
(Jim Peterman)

Oh, the days are gettin' brighter
Yeah, I'm a lucky man
Got the smile comin' on
Reach out and shake my hand

Cause just to see you in the morning
Well, honey it makes me smile
That you keep on keepin' on

Get me down off of this here
I can't feel, it's not too clear
And how I worry when you're not near

But it's all so easy
Yes, it's all so easy to please, babe

Life's gonna be my pleasure
If I can only get enough
But I feel it all up around me
And the pain gets so rough

If you come right here and love me
You know I'll make it true
That you keep on keepin' onback to top
Gangster of Love
(John Watson)

There's Frank James and Jesse James
Billy the Kid and all the rest
Supposed to be some bad cats
Way out in the West

If those cats could of dug me
And my gangster ways
They would have hung up their guns
And dug into their graves

Cause I'm a gangster
A gangster of love
I'm a gangster
A gangster of love
Now look here
When I go into a bar
Girls from near and far
Say I'm a gangster
A gangster of love

I jumped in my white horse Cadillac
I rode across the border line
I roped 55 girls
I kissed them all the same time
Took 25 or 30, put 'em all on a freight
There was a million dollar reward for me in each and every state
Sheriff says is your name Stevie "Guitar" Miller in a very deep voice
And I said yes sir brother sheriff, and that's your wife on the back of my horse
I can't help it
I'm a gangster
I can't help it
You know, I'm a gangsterback to top
You're So Fine
(Jimmy Reed)

Saw a girl walkin' down the street
Upsettin' everybody she meet
Well, she walks up to the corner
She stops, everybody they want her

She's fine
Yes, yes, yes, she's fine
She's a fine, pretty thing
I wanna love her all the time

Well, I said tell me baby
Honey, where you goin'
She said darlin'
Well, I wouldn't be knowin'
She had on a long evening frock
She stopped in the street and did the {??} rock

She's fine
Yeah, she's fine
She's a fine, pretty thing
I wanna love that woman all the time

Well, I said tell me baby
What you thinkin' of
She said there isn't anything greater than love
She looked at me
And she gave me a smile
Shook her head and winked her eye

But she's fine
Yes, yes, she's fine
She's a fine, pretty thing
I need to love that woman all the timeback to top
Overdrive
(Boz Scaggs)

Well, the room is a cyclone
And you are in the eye
There ain't no movement
Things that could die
But the reelin' and the spinnin'
Of the rock and roll sides
Will all be gone before midnight
And die before sunrise

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Yes, the corner's full of monkeys
And your ear drum's full of lies
Time is out the window
And there's echoes in your sides
They've been burnin' down your walls
Ever since the peep of dawn
And now the dealer's in the fireplace
Tryin' to turn it on

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughtta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
You know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Now the light road's gettin' restless
Cause he knows your overdue
But it's just another train ride
Bein' all the same to you
And the last shot's at your finger tips
Like that flicker in the grass
And the last cord hits the ashes
And you know you gotta pass

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughtta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdriveback to top
