I Am a Loner


I 'm a loner,
travelin' from town to town.
I 'm a loner,
travelin' from town to town.
don't hang with me,
I don't want no one around.

Every time I say hello,
it's time to say good-bye.
Every time I say hello,
it's time to say good-bye.
Once in a while it hurts me,
I just can't tell the reason why.

I'm a loner,
hangin' by myself.
I can't get the one I want,
got to use some body else,
I 'm a loner,
travelin' from town to town.
Don't hang with me,
I don't want no one around.

Little Buddhist Girl


I love a little Buddhist girl.
She don't care nothin' in the world for me.
Love a little Buddhist girl.
She don't care nothin' in the world for me.
She don't care for this world,
why, I just can't see.

She don't want my money,
she don't want diamonds and pearls,
want to get closer to Buddha,
than any thing in this world.
Love a little Buddhist girl.
She don't care nothin' in the world for me.
She don't care for this world,
She 'way across the deep blue sea.

Don't want no part of this world,
don't care if she live or die.
She don't want no part of this world,
she don't care if she live or die.
All she cares about,
is Buddha up in the sky.

So nice and kind,
She got such kind gentle ways.
So nice and kind,
You got such gentle ways.
Want to be with her,
the rest of my natural days.

My First Love


I'm still in love,
people, with my first love.
I'm still in love,
people with my first love.
When I make love,
she's all I'm thinkin of.
(ummm)

I remember when we first met,
just like it was yesterday.
We looked into each others eyes,
an' there was nothing more to say.
We loved each other,
even though her folks didn't approve.
They didn't understand,
we needed room to move.

I'm still in love,
people, with my first love, Yeah, yes I am.
When I make love,
she's all I'm thinkin of.
My first love.

When she left me,
my love for her was still strong.
She went with my best friend,
when she knew that was wrong.
So now I search the world over,
for some one just like her.
'Cause without my first love,
life ain't worth livin' for.

I'm still in love,
people, with my first love, yeah.
When I make love,
she's all I'm thinkin of.
My first love.
My first love.

Blues Get Off My Back


I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.
'Cause all these worries and trouble,
something I just don't like.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.

Every single step I take,
I gotta take two steps back.
Every single step I take,
gotta take two steps back.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.

Tryin' to get my life together,
tryin' to get my life back on track.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.

Tryin' to keep it together,
seems so hard to do,
Wonder what's wrong with me ,
can't seem to shake these blues.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.

'Cause all these worries and trouble,
something I just don't like.
I wish these blues,
I wish these blues would get off my back.

Yellow Skin Woman


Girl I love,
she got brown eyes and yellow skin.
Girl I love,
got brown eyes and yellow skin.
Her mother and father,
they sure won't let me in.

I love a yellow skin woman,
she so sweet to me.
Love a yellow skin woman,
she so sweet to me.
Can't live without her,
just can't leave her be.

Her love hit me like a typhoon,
swept me like a leaf in a gale,
hit me like a kamikaze,
wonder why I'm here to tell the tale,
yellow skin woman,
why can't we be one?
I know I'll live on,
yeah, what's done can't be undone.
(Let me show you a little bit)

All the force of nature,
can't keep me away.
All the force of nature,
can't keep me away.
Gonna take her memory,
I'm gonna carry it to my grave.

I Want to Spoil My Girl


I want to spoil my girl,
give her everything her heart desire.
Spoil my girl,
give everything her heart desire.
Do anything I can,
just for one of her sweet smiles.

Work a day job if I have to,
my fingers down to the bone,
got the kind of lovin',
just can't leave alone,
I want to spoil her,
give her anything she need.
Work hard everyday,
'til my fingers bleed.

Give her my last breath,
my last dime too,
give up my life,
that's what she want me to do,
I wanna spoil her,
spoil her rotten to the core.
Give her what she want,
then I'll give her more.

She says she don't want a thing,
hope that's not true,
don't want her to lift a finger,
everything for her I'll do,
spoil that girl,
Spoil her through and through.
I want her to want for nothing,
and prove my love is true.
