All Your Love
(by Otis Rush and Willie Dixon)

I don't know his name.
Didn't know his name, I didn't know his name, I didn't know his name.

Bad Love
(by Eric Clapton and Mick Jones)

Oh what a feeling I get when I'm with you
You take my heart into everything you do
And it makes me sad for the lonely people
I walked that road for so long
Now I know that I'm one of the lucky people
Your love is making me strong 
I've had enough bad love
I need something I can be proud of
I've had enough bad love
No more bad love 
And now I see that my life has been so blue
With all the heartaches I had till I met you
But I'm glad to say now that's all behind me
With you here by my side
And there's no more memories to remind me
Your love will keep me alive 
Chorus

Bell Bottom Blues
(by Eric Clapton)

Bell bottom blues, you made me cry.
I don't want to lose this feeling.
And if I could choose a place to die
It would be in your arms. 
Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it because
I don't want to fade away.
Give me one more day, please.
I don't want to fade away.
In your heart I want to stay. 
It's all wrong, but it's all right.
The way that you treat me baby.
Once I was strong but I lost the fight.
You won't find a better loser. 
Chorus 
Chorus 
Bell bottom blues, don't say goodbye.
I'm sure we're gonna meet again,
And if we do, don't you be surprised
If you find me with another lover. 
Chorus 
I don't want to fade away.
Give me one more day please.
I don't want to fade away.
In your heart I long to stay.

Before You Accuse Me
(by Eugene McDaniel)

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You've been taking money from someone else 
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
Well your mother said "Son"
"Don't call my daughter no more" 
First Verse 
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
If I don't go on and quit you
I'm gonna lose my mind

(by McKinley Morganfield)

When the sun rose this morning, I didn't have my baby by my side.

Don't the sun look lonesome shading down behind the trees?

But don't your house look lonesome when your baby's packed to leave. 
Blow wind, blow wind, blow my baby back to me.

Well you know if I don't soon find them, I will be in misery. 
Goodbye baby, that is all I have left to say.

But you have lost your good thing, go ahead and have your own way.

My mind is rambling like a wild geese out in the west. 
Well, you're my all day steady, baby you're my midnight dream.

Blues Power
(by Eric Clapton and Leon Russell)

Bet you didn't think I knew how to rock 'n' roll.
Oh, I got the boogie-woogie right down in my very soul.
There ain't no need for me to be a wallflower,
'Cause now I'm living on blues power. 
I knew all the time but now I'm gonna let you know:
I'm gonna keep on rocking, no matter if it's fast or slow.
Ain't gonna stop until the twenty-fifth hour,
'Cause now I'm living on blues power. 
First Verse 
Talking to you, now.
The boogie's gonna pull me through.
Keep on, keep on, keep on keeping on.
Keep on keeping on, keep on keeping on.

Bottle Of Red Wine
(by Bonnie Bramlett and Eric Clapton)

Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
You hear what I say?
Gonna love you anyway.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.

And everyone I knew was there.
Had the love that would last forever.
Everywhere I looked, I saw you standing there. 
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
I can't get up out of bed
With this crazy feeling in my head.
I said get up right now, oh oh.

Feel so bad this morning; got a terrible headache in my head.
Do me a favor, baby, do me a favor please.
Please get up; get your man a bottle of red wine.
Get up, get up; get your man a big big bottle of red wine.

County Jail Blues
(by Alfred Fields)

They picked me up, put me in the county jail.
They picked me up, put me in the county jail.
They wouldn't let my woman come and post my bail. 
Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time.
Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time.
They gave me six months, I had to work out nine. 
I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout.
I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout.
When the train comes in and I come walking out. 
Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs.
Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs.
The stripes don't hurt me; the chains could kill me dead.

Crosscut Saw
(by R. G. Ford)

I'm a crosscut saw,
Baby, drag me across your log.
I'm a crosscut saw,
Baby, drag me across your log.
I cut your wood so easy for you,
You can't help but say, "Hot Dog!" 
Some call me Woodcutting Sam,
Some call me Woodcutting Jim.
The last girl I cut wood for,
She wants me back again. 
I'm a crosscut saw,
Baby, drag me across your log.
I cut your wood so easy for you,
You can't help but say, "Hot Dog!" 
I got a double-bladed axe
That really cuts good.
Well, I'm a crosscut saw,
Gonna bury me in your wood. 
I'm a crosscut saw,
Baby, drag me across your log.
I cut your wood so easy for you,
You can't help but say, "Hot Dog!"

Double Crossing Time
(by John Mayall and Eric Clapton)

It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time.
It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time.
When you think you got good buddies, they will spin around and cheat you blind. 
Double crossing man is mean, he will try to make it so you lose.
Double crossing man, he will try to make it so you lose.
You'll fill your mind with worry, you know he hurt me with the blues.

Double Trouble
(by Otis Rush)

Lay awake at night,
Oh so low, just so troubled.
Can't get a job,
Laid off and I'm having double trouble. 
Hey hey, to make you've got to try.
Baby, that's no lie.
Some of this generation is millionaires;
I can't even keep decent clothes to wear. 
Laugh at me walking,
And I have no place to go.
Bad luck and trouble has taken me;
I have no money to show. 
Chorus

Driftin'
(by Charles Brown, Johnny Moore and Eddie Williams)

I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
Well I ain't got nobody in this world to care for me. 
If my baby would only take me back again.
If my baby would only take me back again.
I would feel much better, darling, and at least I'd have a friend. 
I give you all my money, tell me what more can I do.
I give you all my money, tell me what more can I do.
You is a sweet little girl but I swear you won't be true. 
I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
Because I ain't got nobody in this world to care for me.

Early In The Morning
(traditional)

When a girl reach the age of 18
She begins to think she's grown,
And hat's the kind of little girl
You can never find at home. 
Come and see me early in the morning,
Just about the break of day.
Want to see me hug my pillow
Where my baby used to lay? 
One drink of wine,
Two drinks of gin.
Pretty young got me
In the shape I'm in. 
Chorus 
I pass by the juke joint,
Look through the door.
She's doing the boogie-woogie
In the middle of the floor. 
Chorus 
First Verse

Everybody Oughta Make A Change
(by Sleepy John Estes)

Change in the weather, change in the sea,
Come back baby, you'll find a change in me.

Because sooner or later we have to go down in that lonesome ground. 
I changed suits, I changed shirts,
I changed, baby, just to get shed of the dirt.
Everybody, we ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later we're going down in that lonesome ground. 
I changed honey, I changed money,
I changed, people, just to keep from being funny.
Everybody, they ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later we're going down in that lonesome ground. 
Change in the ocean, change in the sea,
Come back baby, you'll find a change in me.
Everybody, we ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later we're going down in that lonesome ground.

Five Long Years

Five long years, every Friday I come straight back home with all my pay.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.

Floating Bridge
(by Sleepy John Estes)

Saying, "Please Lord, take me on dry land." 
Well they carried me in the house and they laid me 'cross the bed.
Well they carried me in the house, they laid me 'cross the bed.

My mother always told me, "Quit playing a bum."
Lord, my mother always told me, "Son, quit playing a bum.
Go out somewhere and make a crumb." 
All the people on the bridge was screaming and crying.

All the people on the bridge stood screaming and crying,
Saying, "Lord have mercy, wher's we g'wine?"

Who was always around
But when I lost my money
She put me down 
Talkin' 'bout hard times
Hard times

There'll be no more sorrow
When I pass away 
And no more hard times
No more hard times
Yeah, yeah, who knows better than I?

It Hurts Me Too
(by Elmore James)

You said you was hurting, almost lost your mind,
And the man you love, he hurts you all the time.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

I pick up behind him and take his mess.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too. 
He love another woman and I love you,
But you love him and stick to him like glue.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too. 
Now you better leave him; he better put you down.
Oh, I won't stand to see you pushed around.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

It's Too Late
(by Chuck Willis)

It's too late, she's gone.
It's too late, my baby's gone.
Wish I had told her she was my only one.

It's a woman that cries,
So I guess I've gotta hide my eyes.
Yes, I will miss her more than anyone.
It's too late, she's gone. 
She's gone, yes she's gone.
She's gone, my baby's gone.
She's gone, yes she's gone.
Where can my baby be? 
And I wonder does she know
When she left me, it hurt me so.
I need your love babe, please don't make me wait.
Tell me it's not too late. 
Chorus

Key To Love
(by John Mayall)

I never realized that you were in pain.
I wanna help you honey, let me see you again.
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough.
Life is so bad, baby, when I find the key to love. 
Put a smile on your face and dry away your tears.
Life is bound to get better as you live your years.
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough.
Life is so bad, baby, when I find the key to love. 
Somewhere in this world, the one you waited for
Come along and find you, turn the key your door.
Hurts my soul, babe, when I find you feeling rough.
Life is so bad, baby, when you find the key to love.

Key To The Highway
(by Charles Segar and Willie Broonzy)

I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running;
Walking is most too slow. 
I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
You know you haven't done nothing,
Drove a good man away from home. 
Live Verse: When the moon peeks over the mountains
I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this old highway
Until the break of day. 
Oh give me one, one more kiss mama
Just before I go,
'Cause when I leave this time you know I,
I won't be back no more.

You're gonna remember the love, child, that made you satisfied.

Lonesome And A Long Way From Home
(by Bonnie Bramlett and Leon Russell)

Out on an open highway,
Such a lovely day but something's wrong.
Something, something's gotta be wrong. 
I just left home this morning,
This old road keeps rolling on and on.
Rolling, rolling on and on. 
Won't somebody help me?
Won't somebody help me?
Won't somebody help me?
I've never been so lonesome and long way from home,
Never been lonesome and long way,
Never been lonesome and long way from home. 
Chorus

Malted Milk
(by Robert Johnson)

I keep drinking malted milk, trying to drive my blues away.
I keep drinking malted milk, trying to drive my blues away.
Baby, you're just as welcome to my loving as the flowers is in May. 
Malted milk, malted milk, keep rushing to my head.
Malted milk, malted milk, keep rushing to my head.
And I have a funny, funny feeling and I'm talking all out my head. 
Baby, fix me one more drink and hug your daddy one more time.
Baby, fix me one more drink and hug your daddy one more time.
Keep on stirring my malted milk, mama, until I change my mind. 
My doorknob keeps on turning, there must be spooks around my bed.
My doorknob keeps on turning, there must be spooks around my bed.
And I have a funny, funny feeling and the hair's rising on my head.

Mean Old World

Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
(by Jimmie Cox)

Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
Spent all my money, I just did not care.
Took all my friends out for a good time,
Bought bootleg whisky, champagne and wine. 
Then I began to fall so low,
Lost all my good friends, I did not have nowhere to go.
I get my hands on a dollar again,
I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins. 
'Cause no, no, nobody knows you
When you're down and out.
In your pocket, not one penny,
And as for friends, you don't have any. 
When you finally get back up on your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your old long-lost friend.
Said it's mighty strange, without a doubt,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out. 
When you finally get back upon your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your good old long-lost friend.
Said it's mighty strange,
Nobody knows you,
Nobody knows you,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

Old Love
(by Eric Clapton and Robert Cray)

I can feel your body
When I'm lying in bed
There's too much confusion
Going around through my head 
And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame still burns
Why can't I get over?
When will I ever learn? 
Old love, leave me alone
Old love, go on home 
I can see your face
But I know that it's not real
It's just an illusion
Caused by how I used to feel 
And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame will always burn
I'll never get over
I know now that I'll never learn 
Chorus

Parchman Farm
(by Mose Allison)

I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm.

Ain't never done no man no harm. 
Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack.
Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack.
Well, I'm putting that cotton in a never-full sack,
A twelve-gauge shotgun at my back. 
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm.
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm.
I'm sitting over here on Parchman farm,
Ain't never done no man no harm.

Ramblin' On My Mind
(
by Robert Johnson)

Reconsider Baby
(by Lowell Fulson)

So long, oh I hate to see you go.

We've been together so long to have to separate this way.

Running On Faith
(by Jerry Lynn Williams)

Lately I've been running on faith
What else can a poor boy do?
But my world will be right
When love comes over you 
Lately I've been talking in my sleep
I can't imagine what I'd have to say
Except my world will be right
When love comes back your way 
I've always been
One to take each and every day
Seems like by now
I'd find a love who cares just for me 
Then we'd go running on faith
All of our dreams would come true
And our world will be right
When love comes over me and you 
Chorus 
Then we'd go running on faith
All of our dreams would come true
And our world will be right
When love comes over me and you
When love comes over you

Same Old Blues
(by Eric Clapton)

I'm sorry baby, but I can't afford to stay.
Your good, kind treatment will worry me someday.
I love you baby, but I'm gonna have to say goodbye.
Woman, I got to move, I really got to fly. 
Same thing every morning,
Tell me what's it all about.
I get those same old blues every night. 
I miss you already, baby, more than words can say.
Seems like I've been gone twenty-four hours, more like a million days.
I love you baby, you know I woudn't tell you no lies.
If you don't believe I love you, look at the tears standing in my eyes. 
Chorus 
Here I am back home, baby, I'm back home to stay.
I love you babe, never more will I go away.
I won't hurt you no more, baby, ain't gonna tell you no more lies.
No more running 'round, no more phony alibis.

San Francisco Bay Blues
(by Jesse Fuller)

I got the blues from my baby left me by the San Francisco Bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away.
Didn't mean to treat her so bad, she was the best girl I ever have had,
She said goodbye, I can take a cry, I want to lay down and die. 
I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime.
She don't come back, think I'm going to lose my mind.
If she ever gets back to stay, it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay. 
Sitting down looking from my back door,
Wondering which way to go,
The woman I'm so crazy about, she don't love me no more.
Think I'll catch me a freight train, 'cause I'm feeling blue,
And ride all the way to the end of the line, thinking only of you. 
Meanwhile, in another city,
Just about to go insane,
Thought I heard my baby, Lord, the way she used to call my name.
If I ever get her back to stay, it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

Sinner's Prayer
(by Lowell Glenn and Lowell Fulson)

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me.
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me.
Well if I've done somebody wrong, Lord, have mercy if you please. 
I used to have plenty of money, the finest clothes in town,
But bad luck and trouble overtaken me, bound to get me down.
Please have mercy, Lord have mercy on me.
Well if I've done somebody wrong, Lord, have mercy if you please. 
Keep on working now, child.
Lord every morning. 
Well if I've been a bad boy, baby, I declare I'll change my ways.
I don't want bad luck and trouble to follow me all my days.
Please have mercy, Lord have mercy on me.
Well if I've done somebody wrong, Lord, have mercy if you please.

Someday After While
(by Freddy King and Sonny Thompson)

I've got to ride that lonesome train.
My heart is heavy with aches and pain.
I said but someday, someday baby,
After a while, you will be sorry. 
Every day my clouds are grey;
It takes you to roll all those clouds away.
I said but someday, someday baby,
After a while, you will be sorry. 
Trouble, trouble, trouble on my mind.
Trouble, trouble, way down the line.
I don't need, I don't need no sympathy,
So babe, babe, don't you, don't you pity me. 
I may be blue, but I don't mind,
Because I know way down the line,
I said someday, someday baby,
After a while, you will be sorry.

Something's Happening
(by Jerry Lynn Williams)

Something's happening, something's going on.
Something's happening, something so strong.
Something's happening, something all over the world. 
Spirit's moving and it's moving fast.
You better get aboard and don't be last.
Something's happening, something all over the world. 
My life has been a series of endless changes,
A constant struggle to be free.
One thing I know for sure now baby,
It's me for you and you for me.

Oh baby, I ain't gonna be riding you 'round in my automobile.
Oh baby, I ain't gonna be riding you 'round in my automobile.
You got so many men, I'm afraid you may get me killed. 
Oh baby, you ain't nothing like you used to be. (No, don't get me killed, honey!)
Oh baby, you ain't nothing like you used to be. (Oh man, leave that woman alone!)
When I was deep in love with you, little girl,
you were just sweet as an apple on a tree.

Steady Rollin' Man
(by Robert Johnson)

I am a steady rollin' man and I roll both night and day.

But I ain't got no sweet woman, woo-hoo Lord, to be rollin' this way. 
I am the man that rolls when icicles are hanging on the tree.

The sky is crying, look at the tears rolling down the streets.
