Not Fade Away by Buddy Holly back to top ↑

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be
You’re gonna give your love to me
I wanna love you night and day
You know my love’ll not fade away
Well you know my love’ll not fade away

My love is bigger than a Cadillac
I try to show it and you drive me back
Your love for me has got to be real
For you to know just how I feel
A love for real not fade away

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be
You’re gonna give your love to me
A love to last more than one day
Well love is love and not fade away
Love is love and not fade away

Nine Below Zero by Sonny Boy Williamson
Additional Lyrics by Jimmi Langemo
back to top ↑

Ain’t it a pity people.
Ain’t it a crying shame.
She waited ’til it was nine below zero
To put me down for another man.

Snow fallin’ all around me
As I walk the streets tonight.
Nine below zero feels a whole lot colder
When your true love don’t treat you right.

Nine below zero –
The little girl let me down.
She knows I ain’t got no money
And I don’t know no one in this town.

Tell me people,
Tell me what would you do,
If it were nine below zero
And your true love ain’t been true?

Burning Love by Dennis Linde back to top ↑

Lord Almighty,
I feel my temperature rising.
Higher, higher
It’s burning through to my soul.
Girl, girl, girl
You gonna set me on fire.
My brain is flaming
I don’t know which way to go.

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir.
You light my morning sky
With burning love.

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
I feel my temperature rising.
Help me, I’m flaming
It must be a hundred and nine.
Burning, burning, burning
And nothing can cool me.
I just might turn into smoke
But I feel fine.

It’s coming closer
The flames are now licking my body.
Won’t you help me?
I feel like I’m slipping away.
It’s hard to breathe
And my chest is heaving.
Lord have mercy,
I’m burning a hole where I lay.

I’m just a hunk, a hunk of burning love.
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love.

Forty Days & Forty Nights by Muddy Waters
Additional lyrics by Jimmi Langemo
back to top ↑

Forty days and forty nights
Since my baby left this town

Sun shinin’ all day long

But the rain keep comin’ down
She’s my life I need her so

Why she left I just don’t know

Forty days and forty nights

Since I set right down and cried

It keeps rainin’ all the time

But the river is runnin’ dry

Lord help me it ain’t right

I love that girl with all my might

My life has fallen apart
Since you’ve broken my heart
I’m searching for you
In a night without stars
I can’t find my way
In this world that’s so dark
Come back to me baby
I’m falling apart
Oh love, Oh love
Love can make a blind man see
Or make him stumble to his knees

Forty days and forty nights

I’m like a ship lost on the sea

I pray every night

That my baby come back home to me
Life is love and love is right
I pray that she come home tonight

It Don’t Make Sense (You Can’t Make Peace)
by Willie Dixon
back to top ↑

You have made great planes
To span the sky.
You gave sight to the blind
With another man’s eyes.
You even made submarines,
They submerge for weeks.

But it don’t make sense,
You can’t make peace.

You take one man’s heart
And make another one live.
You even go to the moon
And come back thrilled.
Why you can crush any country
In a matter of weeks.
But it don’t make sense,
You can’t make peace.

You can make a transfusion
That will save a life.
You can change the darkness
Into broad daylight.
You make the deaf man hear
And the dumb man speak.
But it don’t make sense,
You can’t make peace

Boom Boom by John Lee Hooker

Boom boom boom boom
I’m gonna shoot you right down.
Right off of your feet.
Take you home with me,
Put you in my house.
Boom boom boom boom.

I love to see you strut
Up and down the floor.
When you talking to me.
That baby talk.
I like it like that.
It really knocks me out.

When you walk that walk,
And you talk that talk,
And you whisper in my ear,
And tell me that you love me.
I love that talk.
Mmm

Now you walking up to me.
Yeah, you walking up close.
And you kiss my neck.
And you tell me you love me.
I love that talk.
Mmm

Now we’re standing toe to toe
And you wrap your arms around me
And you kiss my lips
And you play with my hair.
I love you girl
You really knock me out
Boom, Boom, Boom Boom

It Makes My Love Come Down by Bessie Smith/
Squeeze Me by Fats Waller
Additional lyrics by Jimmi Langemo
back to top ↑

When I see two sweethearts spoon
Underneath the silvery moon,
It makes my love come down.
Want you to be around. 

Kiss me, honey,
It makes my love come down.

Cuddle close. Turn out the light.
Do what you did to me last night.
It makes my love come down.
I wanna hang around.
Sweet, sweet baby,
It makes my love come down.

She’s wild about my toodle-oh,
When she gets my toodle-oh.
It makes her love come down.
She wants every pound.

Hear her cryin’,
“Make my love come down.”

Something ’bout you I can’t resist.
When you kiss me, baby, I stay kissed.
Now, squeeze me. Come on baby.
Squeeze me. Squeeze me again,
Don’t stop till I tell you when.

She likes my coffee, likes my tea.
I’m daffy about her
It makes my love come down.
Lovin’ what I found.
Oh, sweet momma.
It makes my love come down.

Let me take you for a ride.
Slide up close right by my side.
It makes my love come down.
I’ll drive you all around.
Easy ridin’
Makes my love come down.

If you want to hear me rave,
Honey, give me what I crave.
It makes my love come down.
For cryin’ out loud,
Can’t help from braggin’.
You make my love come down.

To Be Alone With You by Bob Dylan back to top ↑

To be alone with you,
Just you and me.
Now won’t you tell me the true,
Ain’t that the way it oughta be?
To hold each other tight
The whole night through.
Ev’rything is always right
When I’m alone with you.

To be alone with you
At the close of the day.
With only you in view
While evening slips away.
It only goes to show
That while life’s pleasures are few,
The only one I know
Is when I’m alone with you.

They say that nighttime is the right time
To be with the one you love.
Too many thoughts get in the way every day
But you’re what I’m thinkin’ of.

I wish the night were here
Bringin’ me all of your charms.
When only you are near
To hold me in your arms.
I always thank the Lord
When my working day’s through
I get my sweet reward
When I’m alone with you.

Rollin’ & Tumblin’ – Traditional back to top ↑

We were rollin’ and tumblin’,
God, the whole night long.
When I woke up in the morning
All I had was gone.

Baby, baby,
I want you to be mine.
But if you don’t like my potatoes
Don’t you pull my vine.

Baby, baby,
I want you to love me.
But if you don’t like my peaches
Don’t you shake my tree.

Let It Be by John Lennon & Paul McCartney back to top ↑

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,
Let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom,
Let it be.

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom,
Let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer,
Let it be.
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer,
Let it be.

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer,
Let it be.

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom,
Let it be.

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow,
Let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,
Let it be.

Bring It On Home by Sonny Boy Williamson/
Bring It On Home To Me by Sam Cooke
back to top ↑

Baby, I’m gonna bring it on home to you
Got my ticket. Got my load.
Conductor hollered, “All aboard.”
Gonna take my seat right way back.
Watch that train go down the track.
I’m gonna bring it on home,
Bring it on home to you.

When I think of the good times we have had,
My soul gets happy, my heart gets glad.
And when I think about the ways you love me too.
You bet your life, I’m comin’ home to you.
I’m gonna bring it on home,
Bring it on home to you.

So don’t you ever change your mind,
About leaving, leaving me behind.
You better bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me.

You know I laughed, laughed when you left,
But I know I only hurt myself.
You better bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me.

I’ll give you jewelry, money too.
And that’s not all, all I’ll do for you.
You better bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me.

You know I’ll always be your slave
Until I’m dead and buried in my grave.
You better bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me.

When The Levee Breaks by Memphis Minnie &amp Kansas Joe McCoy
Additional Lyrics by Jimmi Langemo
back to top ↑

If it keeps on rainin’,
Levee’s 
goin’ to break.
When the levee breaks,
We’ll have no place to stay.

I work on the levee, mama,
Both night and day. 

But when the rain started fallin’,
It washed that levee away.

Cryin’ won’t help you,
Prayin’ won’t do no good. 

When the levee breaks,
Mama, you gonna lose.

All last night
I sat on the levee and moaned.
Lost my baby,
Lost happy home.

Now tell me, mama,
What am I supposed to do?
Lost my baby.
I got no one to talk to.

Mean old levee
Cause me to weep and moan.
The sun might be shinin’ now,
But I got no place to go.
