Tattoo'd Lady

Tattoo'd Lady, 
Bearded baby,
They're my family.

When I was lonely,
Something told me, where,
I could always be.

Where I could,
Wish for pennies, 
If we had any.
You'd meet me down,
At the shooting gallery.

Yes I'm a,
Fair ground baby. 
Wonder what made me,
Fall for the pearly queen.

I spent my youth,
Under canvas roof, 
As I roamed from town to town.

I'm not fooling,
When I say I got no schoolin', 
Never like the class bell sound.

From the caravan,
I hear the fairground band, 
Sounding good as they can be.

You know I can't be found,
But if you look around,
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn.
Alright...

Now hear it on the loud speaker say, 
The fire eater is a real fine sight to see,
Yeah he's a death cheater, 
Some kind of central heater,
Be sure to save a seat for me.

Let me tell you 'bout wicked Sadie, 
She's no baby,
The law came, 
And tried to close her sideshow down.
But soon she had the D.A. cheering, 
The police chief wearing,
Her garter for a crown. 

I spent my youth,
Under canvas roof, 
As I roamed from town to town.

I'm not fooling,
When I say I got no schoolin', 
Never like the school bell sound.

From the caravan,
I hear the fairground band, 
Sounding good as they can be.

You know I can't be found,
But if you look around,
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn.
Yeahh...

Tattoo'd Lady, 
Bearded baby,
They're my family.

When I was lonely,
Something told me, where,
I could always be.

Where I could,
Wish for pennies, 
If we had any.
You'd meet me down,
At the shooting gallery.

THE CUCKOO

Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird,
And she warbles as she flies.
And she never holler cuckoo,
'Til the 4th day of July.

Jack of Diamonds Jack of Diamonds,
Well I've known you of old.
Well you've robbed my poor pockets,
Of the silver and the gold.

I'm goin up up on a mountain,
I' m gonna build me a whiskey still.
And I'll sell you one bottle,
For a twenty dollar-bill.

I'm going up upon a hillside,
And I'm gonna stand lookin' down.
So I can see my little baby,
Whenever she is walking around.

Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird,
And she warbles as she flies.
Well she brings us glad tidings,
And she never tells no lies.

Jack of Diamonds Jack of Diamonds,
You're the meanest card I know.
Well you robbed my poor pockets,
And you nearly stole my soul.

Well, I'll eat, when I'm hungry,
And I'll drink, when I'm dry.
And if some woman don't shoot me,
Then I'll live a long time.

Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo
Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo Ohh-hoo.

The Devil Made Me Do It

Well the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

What did I do that was so bad, 
To go and get myself arrested?
Just in town to have some fun, 
But I ended up in the trash can.
There I was in the witness stand, 
My eyes turned towards the jury,
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, 
But it won't come right back to me.

Yeah, the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no mind at all.

The lawyer said, "Son, won't you plead the fifth, 
And don't speak unless requested".
Using all the words at his command, 
His skills were sorely tested.
Then to my complete surprise, 
They went and called a hostile witness,
The devil himself, well he took the stand,
And that's where my case rested.

Well, the devil drove me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the demon drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

What did I do that was so bad, 
To go and get myself arrested?
Well, I  was just in town to have some fun, 
But I ended up in the trash can.
There I was in the witness box, 
My eyes turned towards the jury,
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, 
But it won't come right back to me.

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no mind at all.

The devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

Well, the devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the demon drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all, 
Till I had no chance at all
Till I had no mind at all.

Ohhh..that's right...oh yea

LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS

I caught the Red-Eye at midnight,
In the nick of time,
On the 747, 
And we soon were flying high.

 

Lord, I had no time to lose,
Things were getting hot,
Only I know where we stashed the loot,
The mob wants to know the spot. 

They got the muscle in from Cleveland,
The fire-power from Detroit,
They missed me in New Jersey,
Though things got pretty tight. 

Well, they caught my scent in Richmond,
At the Hotel Savoy,
But I got out the laundry shute,
And went to Chicago, Illinois. 

I'm the Last of the Independents,
Yeah, they're searching coast to coast,
Only I know where we hid the loot,
Eleven years ago. 

I caught the Red-Eye at midnight,
In the nick of time,
On the 747, 
We soon were high and wide.

The moon was laughing at me,
Like it did not have a care,
But I just smiled right back and said,
"You ain't going anywhere". 

Well, I want out of the rackets,
And the numbers game,
'Cos when you cross the big boss,
You only got yourself to blame.

I won't sing like a canary,
And I won't go naming names,
Well, I don't need police protection,
Well, I'll play it my own way. 

I'm the Last of the Independents,
Well, I play by my own rules,
Yes, I'm the Last of the Independents,
The Syndicate, well, it don't approve. 
Yeoowww...

Well, I'm the Last of the Independents,
Well, I got to keep on the move,
Well, I'm the Last of the Independents,
Well, I got no time to lose,
Time to lose,
Time to lose,
Yeoowww.

I've got no time,
Well, I've got no time to lose,
Well, I've got no time,
Well, I've got no time to lose,
Well, I've got no time,
Well, I've got no time to lose,
Well, I've got no time,
Well, I've got no time to lose.

MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS

I saw the Mississippi Sheiks,
On the corner of the street,
Oh, was it just a dream,
Like I've been traveling in a time machine.

Ohhh.

So come along with me,
Back to the southern streets,

I saw old Peg Leg Howell,
His gang was making quite a sound,
I heard Bo Carter wail,
And that git-fiddle-combo played.

Come along and see,
The Mississippi Sheiks.

Come on.....

What you gotta lose,
Can't ya hear me callin', calling you?
To beware should you fall, You've never lived at all,
Till you've done that Georgia crawl,

Well, I hear you little girl,
You say you've been around this world.
From Moscow to Abilene,
But there is one place you've yet to see,

So, come along and see,
The Mississippi Sheiks.

THE SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON

He was the seventh son of a seventh son, 
People claimed that he could cure anyone.
He had the power there is no doubt, 
From his healing hands the light shone all about. 
No magic potion or mystic words, 
His eyes stared at you, no sound was heard. 
People came from north and south, 
To see this faith healing man, see what he was all about. 
Cured the young and cured the old, 
Soon the whole nation knew his name.

Seventh son of a seventh son, 
Is it to late, 
Now that I've come? 
Seventh son of a seventh son, 
Is it to late? 
You know why I've come.

Outside his door where queues ten deep, 
Soon this faith healing man could get no sleep. 
On the street they milled outside, 
Soon this man had to spend his days inside. 
He cured a woman who could not speak, 
And you know the blind child? Now he can see. 
Never asked for payment or took anything from them, 
Faith healing man was not the same.

One day a man with a big cigar, 
Drove into town in a long, long silver car. 
He made a deal, said thin boy would go far, 
Said he'd make this faith healing country boy into a movie star. 

The seventh son of a seventh son, 
He moved away from this small town. 
To the city he soon came, 
He looked up in lights, saw his name. 

See all the people who knew him well, 
As though he was still here, the stories they all tell. 
About the time he made the lame boy walk, 
But know you have to pay hear him talk. 

One day he returned from the city of lights, 
You know something had happened there, his powers had died. 
But know he says he won't cure no more, 
Faith healin' man you have returned.

Seventh son of a seventh son 
Is it to late? You know why I've come. 
Seventh son of a seventh son, 
To be cured, 
Well half went up with those big city lights, 
Seventh son of a seventh son.

THE WATCHER

Is there a car straight under a light that's burning?
Prepared by your soul for all the secrets you're holding.
Step back in time machine for a mind that's frozen.
This is a mind that will challenge the full moon.
Capture on acid a man whose mind is exploding.

This is a life from the edge of the map that's turning.
There on a map they check on the eye of the beholding.
This is a flag for a mind that's frozen.
Don't look for more deep in the sun it's turning.
Ants all over your eyes broken ??? 

They're watching,
They've got you now.

They're showing pictures on a screen,
Time slips and places where you've been.

They're little secret of Saigon.
You trust them mostly to Hong Kong.

Guess what's right in the market place?
Selling secrets at the lowest price.
Eye to eye, come on it's your weakness.
A childish game, marked with foolish ??
Walking city, cat 'n' mouse charming.

They've got you - they've got you now.
They'll watch you - they've got you now.

THEY DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

They don't make them like you anymore,
That's for sure,
And when they made you, 
They made sure they threw away the mold.
It comes as no surprise to me,
That I want to be in your vicinity.

 

If I stand close to you,
I'm not sure if I'm really there.
With my feet on the ground,
But my head it's lost in the air,
Oh, how I wish you could see,
That I'd love to be in your vicinity.

Where would I go?
What would I do if you should run from me?
How does it show were I to lose?
Would you explain to me?
There's something growing,
There's something showing,
There's something won't let me be.
Yeahhh..

Where would I go?
What would I do if you should run from me?
How does it show were I to lose?
Would you explain to me?
There's something growing,
There's something showing,
There's something won't let me be.

They don't make them like you anymore,
That's for sure,
And when they made you, 
They made sure they threw away the mold.
Oh, how I wish you could see,
I want to be in your vicinity.

Well I've heard that one day,
Everything comes to him that waits,
Well that may be so,
But you know it may be too late,
Oh, how I'd love for you to see,
That I want to be in you vicinity.

TUCSON, ARIZONA

I can see the painting on the wall,
Mixtures of different colors.
And I go walking in the Arizona sun,
Slow walking peace of mind.

 

The cactus blooms, the sand dunes,
No city lights, I can see for miles,
And my mind goes on forever.

The sun goes to bed,
Leaving sky of firey red.
Each step takes me closer to heaven.

All is full, all is nice, and all is well,
But when I turn I can see my fellow man,
Fighting in the city streets,
And dieing where they dwell.
Each step takes them closer to heaven.

I can see the painting on the wall,
Mixtures of different colors.
And I go walking in the Arizona sun,
Each step takes me closer to heaven.

I go walking in the Arizona sun,
I go walking in the Arizona sun,
I go walking in the Arizona sun.

You know my little baby, I'd recognize her anywhere.
