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
Rock 'N Me
Well I've been lookin' real hard
And I'm tryin' to find a job
But it just keeps gettin' tougher every day
But I got to do my part cause I know in my heart
I got to please my sweet baby, yeah

Well, I ain't superstitious
And I don't get suspicious
But my woman is a friend of mine
And I know that it's true that all the things that I do
Will come back to me in my sweet time

So keep on rock'n me baby
Keep on a rock'n me baby
Keep on a rock'n me baby
Keep on a rock'n me baby

All the way to Tacoma

Northern California where the girls are warm
So I could be with my sweet baby, yeah

Fly Like an Eagle
seraphimangel2000@yahoo.com


Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,
Into the future.
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,
Into the future.

I want to fly like an eagle,
To the sea,
Fly like an eagle,
Let my spirit carry me.
I want to fly like an eagle,
Till I'm free,
Oh, Lord, through the revolution.

Feed the babies,
Who don't have enough to eat.
Shoe the children,
With no shoes on their feet.
House the people,
Livin' in the street.
Oh, oh, there's a solution.

I want to fly like an eagle,
To the sea,
Fly like an eagle,
Let my spirit carry me.
I want to fly like an eagle,
Till I'm free,
Oh, Lord, through the revolution.

Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,
Into the future.
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,
Into the future.
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,
Into the future.
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin,

I want to fly like an eagle,
To the sea,
Fly like an eagle,
Let my spirit carry me.
I want to fly like an eagle,

Oh, Lord, through the revolution.

Jungle Love
This song isn't as popular as some SMB songs, but still good......
this is my first tab but I think it's mostley right.


1st verse

I met you on somebodys island
you thought you had known me before
I brought you a crate of papia
Then waited all night at your door
You probably wouldn't remember
I probably couldn't forget
Jungle love in the surf, in the poring rain
Everythings better when wet

chorus

Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, its makin' me crazy
Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, its makin' me crazy


2nd verse

But latley you've lived in the jungle
I never see you alone
But we need some definate answers
so i thought i'd write you a poem
The question to everyones answer
Is usually ask from within'
But the patterns of the rain
And the truth they contain
Have written my life on your skin

chorus

Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy (crazy)
Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy


3rd verse

You treat me like I was your ocean
You swim in my blood when it's warm
My cycles a circular motion
Protects you and keeps you from harm
You live in a world of illusion
Where everythings peaches n' cream
We all face a scarlet conclusion
But we spend our time in a dream

chorus/outro

Jungle love! it's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy (crazy) <---(4x)back to top
The Joker
Verse

Cause i'm right here,right here,right here,right,right home

Chorus

cause i'm a picker,I'm a grinner

(post chorus)

Chorus

Cause i'm a picker,i'm a grinner

Take the Money and Run
seraphimangel2000@yahoo.com


This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue,
Two young lovers with nothin better to do,
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube,
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose.

They headed down to old El Paso,
That's where they ran into a great big hassle,
Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle,
Bobbie Sue took the money and run.

Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.

Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas,
You know he knows just exactly what the facts is,
He ain't gonna let those two escape justice,
He makes his livin' off of the people's taxes.

Bobbie Sue, whoa, whoa, she slipped away,
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day,
They got the money, hey,
You know they got away.
They headed down south and they're still running today,
Singin

Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.

Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.
Go on take the money and run.back to top
Abracadabra
(Steve Miller)

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin'
'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin' for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel's face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I'm gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down

Jet Airliner
seraphimangel2000@yahoo.com


Leavin home, out on the road
I've been down before.
Ridin along in this big ol jet plane,
I've been thinkin about my home.

But my love light seems so far away,
And I feel like it's all been done.
Somebody's tryin to make me stay,
You know I've got to be movin on.

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Don't carry me too far away.
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's here that I've got to stay.

Good-bye to all my friends at home,
Good-bye to people I've trusted.
I've got to go out and make my way,
I might get rich, you know I might get busted.

But my heart keeps calling me backwards,
As I get on the 707.
Ridin high, I got tears in my eyes,
You know you got to go through hell before you get to heaven.

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Don't carry me too far away.
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's here that I've got to stay.

Touchin' down in New England town,
Feel the heat comin' down.
I've got to keep on keepin' on,
You know the big wheel keeps on spinnin' around..

And I'm goin' with some hesitation,
You know that I can surely see,
That I don't want to get caught up in any of that
Funky shit goin down in the city.

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Don't carry me too far away.
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's here that I've got to stay.

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Don't carry me too far away.
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's here that I've got to stay.

Oh, Oh big ol jet airliner,
Carry me to my home.
Oh, Oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's there that I belong.back to top
