1. Do you have the time to listen to me whine

         F                        C                  G           

    about nothing and everything all at once ?

   C                    G         Am             Em

      F                G                                C

    she says it´s lack of sex that´s bringing me down.

    I went to a whore, he said my life´s a bore,

           F                        C                                 G           

    so quit my whining cause it´s bringing her down.

   I don’t know why you’re always talking bout getting out of here.
   Em                                      D                           Em
   Breaking west or shooting south and disappearing.
   Em                                                                G
   You must not have got a good look around. Or maybe I just know all the best spots in town.
   Em                   D                                      Em 
   Before you go. Let me show you what’s here

I’ll be on lookout mountain tonight when the sky gets pink.
Em                           D                       Em
Come sit with me there’s a real nice bench.
Em                                                                  G       
We can cut loose and howl at the moon then I can take you back to my big spooky room.
Em                    D                   Em
Before you go. Let me show you

    I don’t know why you’re always talking bout getting out of here.

   Before you go. Let me show you what’s here

You can dip your little toes in this place where no one goes I know down on the river bend. 
Baby we could be the only souls to ever set our feet down on this land.
It’s too hot to not show a little skin. So let’s go skinny dippin.
There’s a paradise here we’re living in

    I don’t know why you’re always talking bout getting out of here.
   Breaking west or shooting south and disappearing.
   You must not have got a good look around. Or maybe I just know all the best spots in town.
   Before you go. Let me show you what’s here

PICKIN' UP HER RADIO WAVES

Em

Are you sending me a message

C

Hey radio DJ

G                                                Em

Are you playing this one just for me

C

There’s only one hit on the dial

D

Out here this many miles

G                                            Em

In between that classic gold country

C

I hear the voice of an angel

D

She reads the weather I can see tornados

G                                       Em

Top of the hour  I’m never late

C

Thank God for clear days

D                                    G                   Em-B-C-G

When I can pick up her radio waves

I’ve been listening for so long
Ten AM until 3 o’clock
There’s not much to do these days
I never see the Goths or Wiccans
The whole mall went out of business
Tumbleweeds blow across that place
Only thing standing from the past
Is the radio tower up on Pat’s
That’s where the music plays

Thank God for clear days
When I can pick up her radio waves

BIG WOMAN

C             G            C                             F           C                  G                          C         
Got a big woman . She lives out in the woods . And that big woman treats me good
C                         G           C                        F       C            G                         C     
I used to be real skinny . Until the day we met . That big woman keeps me fed
   C            F                          C
   That big woman keeps me fed
   C                                                F                  G
   When I’m hiding out from the outlaws and feds
             F                       C                                     Am
   I don’t give her nothing but a little bit of loving
   C                   G                     C
   Without that woman I’d be dead

I was gonna rob them . I’d been running for a week . I probobly woulda killed em just for something to eat. 
But I was blindsided . I took a shovel to my head . Woke up on big momma’s bed . 
I told her I was an outlaw . I can’t go back to town . Cause I’m a wanted man being hunted down
She said honey . I love blue eyes . Then she cooked me up some chicken fries . 


   That big woman keeps me fed
   When I’m hiding out from the outlaws and feds
   She don’t want nothing but a little bit of loving
   Without that woman I’d be dead
   
   That big woman keeps me fed
   When I’m hiding out from the outlaws and feds
   She don’t want nothing but a little bit of loving
   Without that woman I’d be dead

CIRCUS BLUES

D

Well the day she went away

                                                G

She said something about the circus blues

                                           D

 I tried to ask her what that meant

                                       A                  D

I called her phone but i couldn't get through

 D

I couldn't get through each time i called

                                    G

She must be way up in vermont 


I was hanging on, i was hanging on

                        D             A         D

I was hanging on, for way too long 

Her love went cold She was on the move

Where she was i had no clue 
Still i reeled and pinned for you

Still i've got those circus blues 

Then yesterday the big top came

I bought a ticket to the matinee 
I hung around, i went backstage

I looked into her face 

The circus blues had took its toll

If you don't seize time well you sure will grow old 
Just do it now if you didn't do it then

If you don't do it soon it'll be the end

 

And she'll be gone, again

When the show leaves town and the fun all ends 
And all that's left is the morning dew

Some old ticket stubs and the circus blues 
A long lost love and the circus blues 

DO IT ALL

E
Do it all do it all do it all and you better do it all real quick
Better get drunk just one last time better have another cigarette
                   A
I’m feeling fine but you never know if you’re gonna get sick
                E
Ya never know when you might get licked
Ya never know if there’s gonna be a hit
                  B                                                                        A                                        ..E
You never know when somebody’s gonna throw a fit and take you down with them

Do it all do it all do it all and you better do it all with some hustle
Ya never know when your knees’ll get weak
So I better do it all with some muscle
I better take a couple of chances and play some poker with father time
Damn, I had a pair of kings but he called me with triple nines
The house wins this time, but we’re playing all night

Do it all do it all do it all and I better do it all right now
I know not everything is doable, but I’m gonna do it anyhow
I’m gonna head west in the summer time, south when it starts to snow
New Orleans during Mardi Gras, float down the Colorado
Travel around in a three-piece suit, selling rock n roll

           A                                                 E
   If I had my way, I’d do it all the time
   A                                                            B---A---E
   If I had my way, I’d do it ‘til you were mine

So do it all do it all do it all and I better do it all real fast
Have some good times on this side of the grass
Do a bit of boogying, and do some shaking too
Do a little pickin’, and howling at the moon
‘Cause I’m over here doin’ it, I hope you’re doin’ it too

 A                                                 E
   If I had my way, I’d do it all the time
   A                                                            B---A---E
   If I had my way, I’d do it ‘til you were mine

Em                     C                 Em                                    C

Haven’t slept in 2 days now.  There’s discomfort in the hunt

D                                     Em             D                                    C
But if I don’t work this out somehow it’ll be me who’s on the run

Em                                        C            Em                                     C

Train pulls slow I get out to smoke.  Stand in a row of froze trash cans

D                                     Em     
Now I should not thank God for this.  But I spot my man

              D                                    Em

            Wasn’t like I just felt like murdering

                D                                         Em

            and just picked him out of the crowd

                D                                            Em

            This rich woman felt like killing him

                D                                   C

            And she paid me a large amount

Em                               C              Em                  C

Train whistle blows I follow him.  He boards car 26

D                           Em         D                    C
It’s a dirty job I know it is.  But it feeds the kids

       D                                           C                                 Em

    There’s no way to control this . You can run but I’ll hunt you down

ROCK N' ROLL BLUES

BLUES IN G

 

I’ve got the Rock n’ Roll blues it drove me insane

It lurks around the deepest corners of my brain

I climbed up the mountain one time – and took a dive

Felt the sting of being cold, broke and vilified

 

Got the Rock n’ Roll in my veins
Got an electric guitar in my hands
I love Country music, Reggae, Metal and Soul
I got my walkman on me whenever I stroll

I got the Boogie Woogie shuffle and it’s tied on to my soul
I got the devil music hustle and it won’t let me go
Put my foot down on the pedal – got to make it to the show
That’s a cool hundred dollars put some gas into the car

I’m wearing hypnotizing out of fashioned dancing shoes
Got a goodwill special clearance rack blue two piece suit
The band is stylin’ and everybody is in tune
There’s a couple people dancing in another empty room

But the Rock n’ Roll is howling the bass goes boom boom boom
Piano keys they rattle through all the gloom and doom
The band hits a creshendo and the singing does a spin
Then there’s a chilling silence after the music ends
 
I’ve got the Rock n’ Roll blues it keeps me occupied
It keeps me holding on to something as the world rolls by
It smothered any other dream I ever had with its cold monopoly
Still wishing I could move down to music city tennessee

I got the blues real bad I got it for keeps
The thing about the blues is that it gives me the creeps
It makes me miss my baby I made my poor eyes weep
It made me run off to the night time and mingle with the criminals and freaks

RUNNIN' LIKE AN ENGINE

 B---D----A----G----E       E ---G          
E                                                           G
Well I’m runnin like an engine on the brink of collapsing
E                                          G
Driving like me screws are loose
E                                       G
I’m rattling and shaking . Can’t be mistaken
           A                                        B                  B---D----A----G----E              
For an Engine that runs mint like you  


I’m runnin like an engine on a desert road
I’m overheating and about to explode
Sparks fly when I bottom out cause my tires are flat
I’m a thousand miles away I can’t go back

I’m runnin like an engine that’s been getting abused
Black smokes pours out from the centrefuse
I’m feeling like the guilty and accused
I’m broke down now I’ve got the highway blues

My gears are grinding and I can’t pick up speed
Rust ate through the floor at my feet
I’m feeling like an engine thats been waterlogged
I’m looking for an exit cause I want to get off

THIS CHRISTMAS I'M ROLLING ALONE

This Christmas I’m rolling alone


It’s been silent here all year long


There’s been no cheer since you’ve been gone


And it’s silent this evening


Just a soft falling snow


This Christmas I’m rolling alone

The Christmas lights have been up all year
I didn’t chop down no tree


I did liquor up my eggnog cup

 
And watched the fireplace channel on TV


It don’t make much sense getting gifts to give to myself


I’m thankful I’m alive and doing well


But looking at that big empty mantle’s been Hell

It’s been silent here all year long
There’s been no cheer since you’ve been gone
And it’s silent this morning
Just a soft falling snow
This Christmas I’m rolling alone
   
So it’s a good ho ho ho’n
Red nose glowing
God damn merry thing that I’m stoned

There must be some kinda way outa here,
said the Joker to the thief.
There's too much confusion,
I can't get no relief.
Business men they, drink my wine,
Plowmen dig my earth.
None of them know along the line,
what any of it is worth.
No reason to get excited,
the thief he kindly spoke.
There are many here among us,
who think that life is but a joke.
But you and I we've been through that,
and this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now,
the hour's getting late.
JAM
All along the watchtower,
princes kept the view.
While all the women came and went,
barefoot servants too.
Outside in the cold distance,
a wildcat did growl.
Two riders were approaching,
and the wind began to howl. Hey!




SDitting here in limbo, but I know it won't be long
SGitting here in limbo, like a bird without a soDng
Well, they're puAtting up resistance
But I kGnow that my faAith will lead me Don
Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, have some time to search my soul
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on
CHORUS #1:
I don't knGow where life will lDead me

Tried my hF#7and at love and fBmriendship
But all tF#7hat is past and Bmgone
GThis little boy is moving Aon
Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo, knowing that I have to go
Well, they're putting up resistance

CHORUS #2:
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
I can't say where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is past and gone
This little boy is moving on
REPEAT THIRD VERSE




HAmello darkness my old friGend,
I've come to talk with you agAmain.
Because a viCsion softlFy creepCing
Left it's seed while I wFas sleepCing,
And the visFion that was planted in my brCain
Still remAmains
WitChin the sGounds of siAmlence.
In restless dreams I walked alone,
Narrow streets of cobble stone.
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp,
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sounds of silence.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never shared,
And no one dared
Disturb the sounds of silence.
"Fools!" said I, "you do not know,
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell...
And echoed in the wells of silence.
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon gods they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming,
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whispered in the sounds of silence.

[Verse]
 
Am
Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons packed up and ready to go
Heard of some gravesites, out by the highway a place where nobody knows
The sound of gunfire, off in the distance, I'm getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstone, lived in the ghetto, I've lived all over this town
 
 
[Chorus]
 
E
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey, I ain't got time for that now
 
 
[Verse]
 
Am
Transmit the message, to the receiver, hope for an answer some day
I got three passports, couple of visas, don't even know my real name
High on a hillside, trucks are loading, everything's ready to roll
I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nightime, I might not ever get home
 
 
[Chorus]
 
E
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around
This ain't no mudd club, or C B G B,  I ain't got time for that now

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around

[Verse]
 
Am
Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit?  heard about Pittsburgh, PA?
You oughta know not to stand by the window, somebody might see you up there
I got some groceries, some peanut butter, to last a couple of days
But I ain't got no speakers, ain't got no headphones, ain't got no records to play
 
 
[Chorus]
 
E
Why stay in college? why go to night school?  gonna be different this time?
Can't write a letter, can't send a postcard, I can't write nothing at all
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around
I'd love you hold you, I'd like to kiss you, I ain't got no time for that now
 
 
[Verse]
 
Am
Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock, we blended in with the crowd
We got computers, we're tapping phone lines, I know that ain't allowed
We dress like students, we dress like housewives, or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle so many times now, don't know what I look like!
 
You make me shiver, I feel so tender, we make a pretty good team
Don't get exhausted, I'll do some driving, you ought to get you some sleep
Burned all my notebooks, what good are notebooks?,  They won't help me survive
My chest is aching, burns like a furnace, the burning keeps me alive

E                            A
Last night I came home and I knocked at my door
   E                  E              B7
I called for my love as oft I had before
    E                           A
I called once again but no answer there came
    E                         B7              E
No sweet lips to greet me, no voice called my name
 
[chorus]
  E                        E               A                      E
I couldn't believe it was true oh Lord I couldn't believe it was true
   E                           E
My eyes filled with tears and I must have aged ten years
  E            B7          E
I couldn't believe it was true
 
E                            A
I let myself in and I walked to our bed
  E                  E              B7
I found a note there and a message I read
    E                           A
The truth like a bolt from the blue in the dawn
    E                         B7              E
My sweetheart had left me, my darling was gone
 
[chorus]
  E                        E               A                      E
I couldn't believe it was true oh Lord I couldn't believe it was true
   E                           E
My eyes filled with tears and I must have aged ten years
  E            B7          E
I couldn't believe it was true
 
E                            A
The shock was so great I am quivering yet
E                  E              B7
I'll try to forgive her but I cannot forget
E                           A
My heartbreaking loss is another mans gain
  E                         B7              E
Her happiness always I hope will remain
 
[chorus]
  E                        E               A                      E
I couldn't believe it was true oh Lord I couldn't believe it was true
   E                           E
My eyes filled with tears and I must have aged ten years
  E            B7          E
I couldn't believe it was true

 

.............................


But he could not forgive her,
Though he tried and tried and tried.
And the halls of his memories,
Still echo her lies.

He cried like a baby
And he screamed like a panther in the middle of the night
Then he saddled his pony and he went for a ride

It was the time of the preacher in the year of 01.
Now the preachin' is over and the lesson's begun.

A                           D         A

                 E            A
And he got him a room for the night
                                 D           A
He lay there in silence with too much on his mind
                  E          A
Still hoping that he was not right
 
                                    D         A
But he found them that evenin’ in a tavern in town
                  E              A
In a quiet little out of the way place
                                     D                  A
And they smile at each other when he walked through the door
                         E               A
And they died with their smiles on their faces
                     E              A
They died with their smile on their face
 
           D                        A
Don't boss him don't cross him he's wild in his sorrow
                           E
He's ridin' and hidin' his pain
      D                               A
Don't fight him don't spite him let's wait till tomorrow

Maybe he'll ride on again.

D
The red headed stranger from Blue Rock, Montana,
                   A
Rode into town one day.
    D                      G            D
And under his knees, was a raging black stallion,
E                    A
Walking behind was a bay.
    D
The red headed stranger had eyes like thunder,
                               A
And his lips they were sad and tired.
    D                     G            D
His little lost love lay asleep on the hillside,
        A                     D    G  D
And his heart was as heavy as night.
 
[Chorus]
      G
Don't cross him, don't boss him,

He's wild in his sorrow,

Ridin' and hidin' his pain.
      G
Don't fight him, don't spite him,
     D
Just wait 'til tomorrow,
A                    D    G  D/F#  D  G  D/F#
Maybe he'll ride on again.
 
[Verse 2]
D
Yellow haired lady leaned out of her window,
                         A
Watched as he passed her way.
    D                        G            D
She drew back in fear at the sight of the stallion,
    E                       A
But cast greedy eyes on the bay.
D
How could she know that the dancin' bay pony
                       A
Meant more to him than life?
D                           G           D
This was the horse that his little lost darlin'
    A                       D
Had ridden when she was his wife.
 
[Chorus]
      G
Don't cross him, don't boss him,
     D
He's wild in his sorrow,

Ridin' and hidin' his pain.

Don't fight him, don't spite him,

Just wait 'til tomorrow,

Maybe he'll ride on again.
 
[Verse 3]
D
Yellow haired lady came down to the tavern,
                           A
And looked up the stranger there.
   D                      G             D
He bought her a drink and gave her some money,
   E                   A
He just didn't seem to care.
    D
She followed him out as he saddled the stallion,
                                  A
And laughed as she grabbed at the bay.
   D                          G          D
He shot her so quick they had no time to warn her,
    A                  D
She never heard anyone say:
 
[Chorus]
      G
Don't cross him, don't boss him,
     D
He's wild in his sorrow,
                      A7
Ridin' and hidin' his pain.

Don't fight him, don't spite him,

Just wait 'til tomorrow,
A                    D    G  D/F#  D  G  D/F#
Maybe he'll ride on again.
 
[Verse 4]
    D
The yellow haired lady was buried at sunset,
                          A
The stranger went free of course.
        D               G              D
For you can't hang a man for killing a woman,
E                          A
Who's trying to steal your horse.
D
This is the tale of the red headed stranger
                           A
And if he should pass your way,
D                       G            D
Stay out of path of the ragin' black stallion
    A                       D
And don't lay a hand on the bay.
 
[Chorus]
      G
Don't cross him, don't boss him,
     D
He's wild in his sorrow,
                      A7
Ridin' and hidin' his pain.
      G
Don't fight him, don't spite him,
     D
Just wait 'til tomorrow,
A                    D    G  D/F#  D  G  D/F#
Maybe he'll ride on again.

[Chorus]
E                   B7           E
Can I sleep in your arms tonight lady?
                            B7
It's so cold lying here all alone
    E          E7           A
And I have no holds to hold on you
   B                 B7        E
I assure you I'll do you no wrong
 
[Verse 1]
E                       B7         E
Don't know why but the one I love left me
                               B7
Left me lonely and cold and so weak
    E               E7        A
And I need someone's arms to hold me
         B                     B7         E
Till I'm strong enough to get back on my feet
 
[Chorus]
E                   B7           E
Can I sleep in your arms tonight lady?
                            B7
It's so cold lying here all alone
    E          E7           A
And I have no holds to hold on you
   B                 B7        E
I assure you I'll do you no wrong
 
[Verse 2]
E                 B7             E
I haven't smiled since she left me
                                   B7
Cause a smile somehow seems out of place
      E                     A
And I just need two lips to kiss me
       B                   B7            E
Then I can smile again and I can show my face
 
[Chorus]
E                   B7           E
Can I sleep in your arms tonight lady?
                            B7
It's so cold lying here all alone
    E          E7           A
And I have no holds to hold on you

I assure you I'll do you no wrong

You told me once that you were mine alone forever

And I was yours, till the end of eternity
                              G               D
But all those vows are broken now, and I will never
              A           D
Be the same except in memory

Chorus:
D7       G                            D
Remember me when the candlelights are gleaming
         A                               D
Remember me at the close of a long, long day
             D7    G                        D
And it would be so sweet when all alone I’m dreamin'
                 A              D
Just to know you still remember me


A brighter face may take my place when we’re apart, dear
Another love with a heart more bold and free
But in the end, fair-weather friends may break your heart, dear
If they do, sweetheart, remember me

Chorus

At a time when the world seems to be spinnin'
A                       E
Hopelessly out of control
          A                                   D
There's deceivers and believers and old in-betweeners
     A            E           A
That seem to have no place to go
 
E                                 D              A
Well it's the same old song, it's right and it's wrong

And livin' is just something that I do
         A                                  D
And with no place to hide, I looked in your eyes
    A       E         A
And I found myself in you

I looked to the stars, tried all of the bars

And I've nearly gone up in smoke
       A                                       D
Now my hand's on the wheel of somethin' that's real
    A           E         A    D A
And I feel like I'm goin' home
 
A                                       D
And in the shade of an oak, down by the river
A                    E
Sat an old man and a boy
A                                             D
Settin' sails, spinnin tales, and fishin' for whales
       A         E           A
With a lady that they both enjoy
 
E                             D                    A
Well it's the same damn tune, it's the man and the moon
     F#m            F          E
It's the way that I feel about you
         A                                  D
And with no place to hide, I looked in your eyes
    A       E         A
And I found myself in you

I looked to the stars, tried all of the bars

And I've nearly gone up in smoke

They're made of lipstick, plastic, and paint, a touch of sable in your eyes.

All your life all you've asked is when's your daddy gonna talk to you

  So you sit home alone cause there's nothing left that you can do
             E5                           G             Am
There's only pictures hung in the shadows left there to look at you

  You know she likes the lights at night on the neon broadway sign

And if you run out
Before I run out
You can always get some from me

Now if you ain’t got none
And if I ain’t got none
We can go find some other head
Find out what they’re holding
Get down and start rolling
And smoke what they’re holding instead

          Am

1. An angel's smile is what you sell,

 

    you promise me heaven, then put me through hell.

 

    Chains of love got a hold on me,

 

    when passion's a prison, you can't break free.

D                                           - Am         D

    Oh, you're a loaded gun!          Oh, there's nowhere to run!

                                               E

    No one can save me, the damage is done.

 

  Am                         F                G             Am

Shot through the heart,  and you're to blame,

                  G       F     Am

you give love a bad name!

                  F                     G             Am

I play my part and you play your game,

                  G        F    Am                      G           Am

you give love a bad name! You give love  ~ a bad name!

 

  Am

2.     You paint your smile on your lips,

 

    blood red nails on your fingertips.

 

    A school boy's dream, you act so shy,

 

    your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye.

D                                          - Am         D

    Oh, You're a loaded gun!        Oh, there's nowhere to run!

                                               E

    No one can save me, the damage is done. 

 

+ CHORUS (2x)..

Against the wind    (video)    (intro)    (midi)

 

    G  ~                                            - Bm

1.            It seems like yesterday,            but it was long ago,

C                                                       G

    Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights,

D                                                      C

    there in the darkness with the radio playing low. And ...

G                                                    - Bm

    And the secrets that we shared,         the mountains that we moved,

C                                     G

     caught like a wildfire out of control

                           C                                                           D      - D7

    till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove.

 

                   Em           D                     G

    And I remember what she said to me,

                      Em              C                         - G

    how she swore that it never would end.

           Em                       D                      C
