1. "Custard Pie"

Rock down, lady, by the sea
Rock down, mama, just dream of me
Mama, love me, fool around all night long
Well, I'm may look like I'm crazy
I should know right from wrong

See me comin' slowly on by your door
Ain't no stranger, I been this way before
See me comin', mama, slowly on by your door
I ain't no stranger, I been this way before

Put on your night shirt and your morning gown
You know by night I'm gonna shake 'em on down
Put on your night shirt, mama
And your morning gown
Well, you know by night
I'm surely gonna shake 'em on down
Shake it, shake it

Ooh, your custard pie, ain't seen the like
When you cut it, mama, save me a slice
Your custard pie, I declare, ain't seen the like
I like your custard pie
When you cut it, mama
Mama, please save me a slice, oh

Chew on a piece of your custard pie (Repeat)
Drop down (Repeat)


2. "The Rover"

I've been to London, seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to walk it, sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for
There can't be no denyin'
That the wind is shakin' down
And the flatworm cryin'
And the new plague on the land

*If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join (hands)

Converse the planet when heaven send me
I saw the kings who rule them all
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
I hear the rustin' rivers call
And the wind is cryin'
I'm a little bit more grown cold
My lover, she is lyin'
On the dark side of the globe

(* Repeat)

You got me rockin' when I ought to be alone
Darlin', come on, tell me, darlin', which way to go
You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me spinnin'
Won't you tell me darlin', which way to go
That's right

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
And I would dearly like to know
I always wonder if earthly plunder
Will leave us anything to show
And our time is flyin'
See the candle burnin' low
Is the new world risin' from the shambles of the old

If we could just join hands (Repeat)
If we could just, if we could just (Repeat)
Join hands
That's all it takes (Repeat)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (Repeat) that's right (Repeat)


3. "In My Time of Dying"

In my time of dyin', want nobody to moan
All I want them to do is take my body home

*Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Jesus, got to make you, shiver
Jesus, gonna make you
Jesus, gonna make you my dyin' bed

Meet me, Jesus, meet me
Ooh, meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me. lord
Oh, please meet me with another pair

(* Repeat)

Jesus, gonna make you, somebody, somebody
Oh, Jesus, gonna make you
Jesus gonna make you my dyin' bed

Oh, Saint Peter, I can make amends
Won't you let me in
I never did no wrong, I never did no wrong
Oh, oh Gabriel, let me blow your horn
Let me blow your horn
I never did no wrong, did no wrong
I only can be young once
I never thought I'd do anybody no wrong
No not once

Oh, I did somebody so good
Somebody some good, yeah
Oh, did somebody some good, yeah
I must have did somebody some good, yeah
Oh, I believe I did, I seen the smilin' faces
I know I must have left some traces

And I seen them in the streets
And I seen them in the theater
And I even felt my feet
And I never tried to be real
Oh, lord, deliver me all the wrongs I've done
Oh, you can deliver me, lord
I only wanted to have some fun

Oh, keep the angels marchin', marchin'
Keep them marchin', keep them marchin', marchin'
Oh, my Jesus (Repeat)
That's got to be my Jesus
It's got to be, it's got to be my Jesus
It's got to be, oh it's got to be my Jesus
Oh, gonna take me home
Come on, come on
I can hear the angels singin', oh
Here they come, here they come, here they come
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Oh, it's pretty good up here, pretty good up here
I'll touch Jesus (Repeat)
Oh, oh yeah, I seen him, yeah, come on
Oh, don't you make it my dyin', dyin', dyin', cough

(That's gonna be a long ending. Come have a listen then.)
(Oh yes, thank you.)


4. "Houses of the Holy"

Let me take you to the movies
Can I take you to the show
Let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow

From the houses of the holy
We can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter
And it only goes to show that you know

There's an angel on my shoulder
In my hand a sword of gold
Let me wander in your garden
And the seeds of love I'll sow, you know

So the world is spinning faster
Are you dizzy when you're stoned
Let the music be your master
Will you heed the master's call
Oh, Satan and man

Said there ain't no use in cryin'
'Cause it'll lonely only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear him lyin'
Was this the only world you had, oh

So let me take you, take you to the movie
Can I take you, baby, to the show
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow, you know I'll try


5. "Trampled Under Foot"

Greasy slicked down [body], groovy leather trim
I like the way you hug the road, mama, it ain't no sin.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Ooh, trouble free transmission, hot your oil's flow,
Mama let me pump your gas, Mama let me do it all.

Talkin' 'bout love, huh
I’m talkin' 'bout love, oh
Talkin' 'bout

Check that heavy metal underneath your hood
Baby, I can work all night believe I’ve got the proper tools.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Automobile with cover, really built with [in] style
Specialist tradition, mama let me feast my eyes.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Factory air conditioned, heat begins to rise,
Guaranteed to run for hours, Mama, you're [and] the perfect size.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Groovin' on the freeway, gauges are all [on the] red
Gun down on my gasoline,
Believe I’m gonna crack your head.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

I can't stop talkin' about
I can't stop talkin' about,
ooh yeah-yeah, yes, drive on.

Ooh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yes,
I’m comin’ through!

Come to me for service every hundred miles
Baby, let me check your points, fix your overdrive.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Ooh yes, fully automatic, comes in any size
Makes me wonder what I did, before we synchronized.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Oh, feather-light suspension, Koni's couldn't hold,
I'm so glad I took a look inside you showroom doors.

Talkin' 'bout love,
Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout

Oh yeah, oh yeah.
I can't stop talkin' about love
I can't stop talkin' about love
Oh, let me go on down, go on down,
Go on down, go on down, yeah.
I can't stop talkin' about
I can't stop talkin' about love, hey!
I can't stop talkin' about love, oh my baby,
I can't stop talkin' about love, my baby,
My baby, my baby, yeah.
Push, push, push, yeah.
Push, push, push. Oooh.


There are some I'm still not sure of, eg in The Ocean it isn't "high hopes hailla ball", more like "I got a date, I can't be late for the hellhound headin' forth " but still not certain about this.

Also Walters Walk, another difficult one:

Ooh know I feel's so strange lookin' at the door,
Ah oh, tryin' hard to change and can't let go.
Oh cyrin' tears of pain hurtin' more an' more
Oh everyday's the same as you walk the floor.

I'm walkin' the floor over you,
I'm walkin' the floor.

Every heart that breaks is a heart that's cold,
Oh to the hand that takes your dreamless soul.
Ah is it long to wait? Is there much to pay?
Oh ah sometimes it's hard waitin' for the day.

You know it's hard, I said it's hard, you know it's true.
I said it's hard, you know it's hard, still know it’s true.

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost.
When you hear the call can you count the cost?
And you stand alone, do you wonder how?
Can you step aside? Does it matter now?

Every love that shares (every love that shares)
spend it fully
In the eyes of the night (in the eyes of the night)
Was it hard to see (was it hard to see)?
In the day everything will (in the day everything will) smile and grow
So you fight the tears,enter Walters Walk.

Know it's true, now,
You know it true now, whoh-yeah.

I'm walkin' the floor over you,
I'm walking the floor.

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost.
When ya hear the call can you count the cost?
As you stand alone do you wonder how?
Can you step aside, does it matter now?

Does it matter now?
Does it?
Now does it matter?
Now does it matter?

Ooh yeah!
Ooh yeah!
Ooh little baby don't you know?

Every tear that falls, does it matter now?
Does it matter now? Oh yeah!
Oh yeah! Oh yes! Oh yes!


6. "Kashmir"

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk in song from tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
And not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear

Ooh, baby, I been blind
Oh, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oh, ooh yes, I been blind
Mama, mama, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this razor line
Can I find, can I find where I've been

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Leave the path the led me to that place
Yellow desert stream
Like Shangri-la beneath the summer moon
I will return again
As the dust that floats finds you
Will move and search Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds fill my sails
Cross the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
Along the straits of fear

Oh, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah
And my feet wear my fickle way to stay
Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down
Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oh, my baby
Let me take you there
Come on, oh let me take you there
Let me take you there

 

Disc two


1. "In the Light"

And if you feel that you can't go on
And your will's sinking low
Just believe and you can't go wrong
In the light you will find the road
You'll find the road

Hey, ooh, did you ever believe
That I could leave you standin' out in the cold
Hey, baby, I know how it feels
'Cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul
Oh, baby, I just want to show you what I'd give you
In case you ever been on the road
Now, listen, oh, as I was and would do for you, too
Honey, as you would do for me
I would share your load, let me share load
Ooh, let me share you load

And if you feel that you can't go on
In th light you will find the road

Hey, oh the winds of change my blow around you
But that will always be so
Oh wo, when love is pain it can devour you
If you are ever alone
I'll share your load, I will share your load
Baby, let me, oh let me, in the light
Everybody needs a light, oh yeah, oh baby
Everybody, everybody, everybody sure 'nuff they do
Light, light, light, in the light (Repeat)


2. "Bron-Yr-Aur"

 

3. "Down by the Seaside"

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin'
Can the people hear, oh
What the little fish are sayin'

*The people turned away
The people turned away

Down in the city streets
See all the folk go racin', racin'
No time left, no no
To pass the time of day

(* Repeat)

So far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run
See how they run, see how they run
Run, run, run

Do you still do the twist
Do you find you remember things that well
I want to tell you, some folks twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell

Out in the country
Hear the people singin'
Singin' 'bout their progress
Knowin' where they're goin', yeah, yeah

(* Repeat)

Sing loud for the sunshine
Pray hard for the rain
And show your love for lady nature
And she will come back again

(* Repeat)

Now they know where they're goin'


4. "Ten Years Gone"

Then as it was, then again it will be
Though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

Like stars of fortune
Each has separate rays
On the wings of maybe
Down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes
I didn't have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest
He got so far to go

Changes fill my time
Baby, that's all right with me
In the midst I think of you
And how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody
And really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody
The best love you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby
Did it feel so good
'Cause it was just the first time
And you knew you would

Turn the eyes and I sparkle
Senses growing keen
Tasting love along the way
See your feathers preen
Kind of make you feel sometimes
Didn't hard to grow
We are eagles of one nest
The nest is in our souls

Vixen in my dreams with great surprise to me
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin' (Repeat)
I'm never gonna leave you, I'm never gonna leave you
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone (Repeat)


5. "Night Flight"

I received a message from my love across the water
You sat laughin' as you wrote the ends in sight
So I said goodbye to all my friends
And packed my hopes inside a matchbox
'Cause I know it's time to fly

*Oh yeah, come on, meet me in the morning (won't you)
Meet me in the middle of the night (night night)
Oh yeah, the mornin' light is comin'
Don't it make you wanna (try to) feel all right

I just jumped a train that never stops
So now so how'll they know I never finished
Payin' for my ride
Just now someone pushed the dime into my hand
Tell me I'm the type of man
To fight the fight that I'll require

(* Repeat)

Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin'
Nothin' here to make me stay
Oh, mama, well it must be time I'm goin'
They're knockin' down them doors
They're tryin' to take me away

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell
And ring it loud and clear
Please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell
And tell the people they got to fly away from here

I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
Southern lady, had a very, very special smile
We ware in the middle of a change in destination
When the train starts, all together we will smile

Oh, come on, come on, now meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night
Night, night, night
Oh yeah, everybody knows the mornin' time is comin'
Don't it make you wanna feel all right
Oh, yeah, make me feel all right, fly now, baby
Get to fly, yeah, fly my baby


6. "The Wanton Song"

See you movin' in the night again
Tell me I see too much, baby
Same old thing, I'm on a plane
And the wheel rolls on
Silent moves through the flames
From the deep behind the soul
Guess my nightmares have now begun
Left me barely holdin' on

To strangers I seem a gentleman
When we know the time has come
Lose my sense and lose command
You know even rivers run
Seems like every time I fall
I think this is the one
Oh, in the darkness can you hear me call
Another day has just begun, another day

See all of my faces is changed
Some have a ways to come
Even my fire needs a brand new flame
And the wheel rolls on, rolls on


7. "Boogie with Stu"

Been in town, my baby
We just got to run home
Yeah, darlin', we just got to go home
I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop
Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah honey
We been shakin' all night
Oh, darlin' we just got to run right
Ooh, my head, rock on, rock on

Hey baby, hey baby (Repeat)
I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop
Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock

I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop
Come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock


8. "Black Country Woman"

(Shall we roll it, Jimmy? We're rolling on what, one?)
(No, one again)
(Got to get this airplane on)
(Naw, leave it, yeah)

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
Didn't have to love me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to make me a total disgrace
Didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Oh, that's all right, it awful doggone clear

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean
Oh oh, baby, why you treat me mean
You didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean
You didn't have to say you'd always be by my side
Didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushing bride
Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean
But that's all right, I know your sister, too

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
You didn't have to leave me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace
You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Oh, but that's all right, I'd be the same way, too, oh yeah

Now, my baby, you didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me you would be my own
You didn't have to tell me, baby, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Oh, that's all right, I know your sister, too
Oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah
What's the matter with you, mama


9. "Sick Again"

On the window of your ready little scene
I'm lookin' in your eyes
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen
Ain't a lady in the city of lights

*Oh, do you know my name
Do I look the same

You know I'm the one you want, baby
I must be the one you need, yeah

Reflections, baby, from your teenage dream
In the lobby of a hotel cafe dive
Through the circus of the L. A. queens
I passed you round, went right on by
Oh, how you play the game
Still don't know your name
You know I'm the one you want, baby
Yes I'd love to be the one you need
Oh, you got to tell me

Get this, get this
Lips like cherries on the frown of a queen
Come on, flash it right in my eyes
Said you dug me since you were thirteen
Then you giggle as you hurt inside

(* Repeat)

Baby, I got to tell you I'm the one you want
And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah
Oh get it, come on, now (Repeat)

Hours, hours, and the moments in between
Oh baby, I could count the times
I've thought of comin' on a plane and leavin'
Baby, dry those silver eyes

(* Repeat)

You know I'm the one you want
Yes, I'm the one you need
Oh, that's right
