Story

This was written as a closing song for the clubs and bars. They seem to have problems at closing time with people not wanting to leave. This song was designed to let customers know "the party's over; it's the last call and time to close the bar." Short, sweet, simple and straight to the point.

Lyrics

Time to get out of here

You been partying all night long, having so much fun

Now it's time to get up, It's half pass one.

Time is oh so near, you got time for one more beer.

It's time to go, it's time to get out of here.

Party hardy people all night long.

 Hear what I say in this song.

Chorus:

It's time to get up,

It's time to get out of here.

It's time to up you ’al,

It’s time to get out of here.

 

All you fellows standing around the wall

You’ve been partying all night long having a ball.

If you don't have a date, why did you hesitate?

That's all tonight you just might be too late.

I got a feeling that lays ahead that so much better.

If you want to go with me, let’s get together.

Chorus:

Pretty little girl in the corner sit in over there

I don't want to tell you but it's time to get out of here.

This ain't where it ends, if you want to be my friend,

Come back tomorrow night and we can do it again.

Girl you look so sweet, you knock me off my feet.

The way you move your body to the rhythm when you feel the beat

Chorus:

Vamp:

Next time

 

I saw you setting in the corner. You were setting there with your friends.

I wanted to come over, but you were talking to so many men.

Chorus:

Let’s talk it over so they will understand. Next time they see us, I will be the only man.

Now listen to me baby, hear every word I say.

It's time you get to know me cause I'm gonna steal your heart away

Bridge: Those other guys, they just wasting time.

Come with me baby - let me show you - what's on my mine.

Soon there will be no others knocking at your front door.

There want no problems cause they want be coming round no more.

When we're together - sure they will understand.

Next time they see us I will be the only man.

Story

Once there was a young lady that I lived with and at first I really thought I was in love. Well, as time passed, I really got know this beautiful young sexy thing and I come to realize that she was not ready to be faithful and true to one man. She was a player from the heart. I was just a victim that got burned. That one was costly and embarrissing. When I got out of that relationship, I was very careful about the women that I allowed to get close to my heart. Remember, "Beauty Is only Skin Deep". It took me a while to learn that.

Lyrics

Straighten Up Woman

 

You lay around my house all day long. You do nothing but talk on the telephone.

When I gave you the money to pay the rent, you come back two days later

And ain't got a red cent.

Chorus:

Listen here woman, hear every word I say. If you don't straighten up,

I'm gonna send your way.

A good time reputation is something I just can use.

So get yourself together and stop acting like a fool.

You've been sneaking all over town and telling all your friends

That you're gonna put me down.

Chorus:

You came home this morning after being out all night.

You tried to tell me that the party was out of sight.

But I found out, it’s coming to the light.

There is something about your story that doesn’t seem right.

Chorus:

Vamp:

If you don't straighten up, I gonna send you on your merry way

Story

This song tells the whole story. I had a dream that I will never forget. The dream was about my girlfriend. She died in a car accident. I have experienced this dream in real life many times over in my lifetime, so I used reality, mixed with my imagination to create this song especially for those who can relate to a story such as this. I wrote this song to express the great love between two individuals in a relationship; the life and future they had planned together and for some reason the good Lord decided something different. This is a very sad and gripping song that touches the heart. Losing the one you love is a hurting thing. All you can do is put it in the hands of the Lord because he knows what's best for all of us. Still, if it happens to you, think about it; how would it affect you?

The Dream

 

Once-once I had a dream such a lonely dream.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

In this dream- troubles fell upon us baby.

My whole world came crashing down on me.

The Angels came calling - The good Lord took you away.

Leaving me lonely - so lonely - with nothing to say.

How - how can I stop this from happening baby.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

Why - why do I fear this dream baby?

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

It's gonna be over - all over baby.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

I'm - I'm so afraid to close my eyes baby.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

The Angels came calling - The good Lord took you away.

Tell me daring - what does it mean?

I - I can't bear to loose you baby.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

I - I saw two shadows on the wall.

Tell me darling - what does it mean?

And baby - one shadow had to fall.

Can you tell me - what does it mean.

Story

I wrote this song because of the story. So many of my friends has got into relationships for all the wrong reasons. They ended up hating each other, don't want to be around each other and feeling they've been used. It's hard to say who is right or who is wrong because at the beginning of the relationship, each was getting what they wanted. But, let's face it, when it's going nowhere, what's the point and who's to blame? Do the math, "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing."

Love lifted me up

I want to tell you a story. Tell you about my love affair. I fell in love with this girl on mine but in her heart she just didn't care. Now I though we could make it. I just knew we would be all right. But later on something happen. Cause all she wants to do is fuss and fight.

Chorus:

Love lifted me up - and then it bought me down. Love lifted me up - and then it bought me down.

We went out together, laughing and having fun. Now that's the way a love should be, but instead she was playing on me. At first I was so happy, so blind, I couldn't see. But I was so broken hearted when I found out what she was doing to me.

I want to tell you a story, tell you bout my love affair. I fell in love with this girl of mine, but in

Chorus:

Now you've heard my story, talking bout my love affair. The girl turned her back on me, and now I just don't care. Time brings so many changes, time will let you know. Forget about that woman and now I think it's time to go.

Chorus:

I tried to be a good man doing everything I can. I even gave her a diamond ring and ask her to marry me. After that we fell apart. Love broke my heart. Holding back the tears in my eyes because a man ain't suppose to cry.

Lyrics

You’re Gonna Miss Me

 

Setting at home, all alone and blue.

Feeling the sorrows that you've put me through.

I've been hurt, my heart's in so much pain.

I don't think I'll ever be the same.

And that's wrong. It's time to move on.

I know that's it's all over.

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

Pick up the pieces and save them from this misery.

I know that we must bring this to an end.

Don't blame me, I tried to give you everything.

One day baby, you'll come running back knocking at my front door.

I'll be there to let you in, but this time baby,

Do yourself a favor and find yourself another man.

I know that it's all over.

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

Girl you're gonna miss me, girl you're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

Girl you're gonna miss me, miss me when I'm gone.

Lyrics

Holding On

 

Darling, I'm a jealous lover. 

And I know you've been seen with another.

Cause the new gets around, soon you gonna put me down. 

Girl, I think you're wrong, but until then I'll keep holding on.  

Darling, He don't really love you.

He don't want you. He's playing you for a fool.

Girl, listen to me, right now you just don't see.

Tomorrow he'll be gone. And all I can do is keep holding on.

Bridge:

Girl let me tell you something because it's worrying me. Soon he'll be gone, but until then,

I'll keep holding on.

Darling, you know I really love you.

I'll do anything that you want me too.

My heart's in so much pain driving me insane.

Every night that you're gone, all I can do is keep holding on.

Vamp:

Darling, he don't really love you. He don't want you. He's playing you for a fool.

Story

I was Playing at the King Biscuit Blues Festival In 1995 and I ran into a woman that seem to have some kind of magic or powers. She and I were talking and I was telling help some of my problems which turned out to be a big mistake. After having conversation with her she let me know what was on her mine. She's looking for a good man. I started backing off real fast. The woman weight must have been about 250 lbs. Now that is just too much woman for me. She gave me a little black bag that had some seeds in it and told me that this is a portion that would keep me safe and no harm would come to me while I was on the road. Well, when I left Helena, Arkansas, all hell broke loose. I couldn't get away from her. She came to most of my gigs, call three or four times a day and even came to Kansas City to visit with me. I tried to tell her this is not going to work, and that I could not love her. This went on for quite some time. I was playing in New Orleans and I was talking to another musician that lived there, and I was telling him my problem. He took me to this old man, 89 years old and had me tell him my problem. The old man gave me a "stay away portion" told me to go to church and on a daily basis keep this portion in my pocket. After a few months the Voodoo Woman stop calling and coming around. Now behind that experience, I decided to write a song about it.

Lyrics

Voodoo Woman

 

I got a Voodoo Woman.

This I know, she's been following me around everywhere I go.

I found a black cat bone down by my feet.

And ever since then, something's been wrong with me.

I believe that Voodoo Woman whipped her spell on me.

Every time I look around her face is all I see.

 

I went to the Witch Doctor.

Hear what he had to say.

I told him bout the Voodoo Woman, she just want go away.

Now I believe she's got me under her spell,

Because when I try to find me a lover, she can always tell.

 

That Voodoo Woman whipped her spell on me.

Every time I look around, her face is all I see.

 

Now here's what you got to do.

Now Sunday morning go to Sunday school

And ask the teacher about the golden rule.

When Monday comes and you're feeling hurt,

Forget about the pain and go on to work.

Tuesday morning, if you feel the same,

Just get on up and do the same thing.

Wednesday evening and you're still a mess,

The worst is over, now you can get some rest.

Now Thursday night and you're feeling all right,

Something’s changed, you finely see the light.

When Friday come and sun is high in the sky,

You’ll be all right by the time the eagle fly.

Saturday night, time will tell

if that Voodoo Woman's done lost her spell.

By Sunday morning should be the end,

And if that don't work, start all over again.

 

That Voodoo Woman whipped her spell on me.

Every time I look around her face is all I see.
