Evil Mood


I'm in an evil,
evil womanizing mood.
'Cause I just found out,
no woman mean me no good.
I'm in an evil,
evil womanizing mood.
'Cause I just found out,
no woman mean me no good.

Don't ask me to be true.
Don't ask me to keep your rules.
Don't ask me to be your fool.
Don't ask me to take away your blues.
I'm in an evil,
evil womanizing mood.
'Cause I just found out,
they don't mean me no good.

Don't ask me to treat you right.
Don't ask me to come home at night.
Don't ask me to see your light.
Don't ask me to get high as a kite.
I'm in an evil,
evil womanizing mood.
'Cause I just found out,
they don't mean me no good.

Don't ask me to love only you.
Don't ask me to change my tune.
Don't ask me to tell you why.
Don't ask me not to cry.
I'm in an evil,
evil womanizing mood.
'Cause I just found out,
they don't mean me no good.

Smokin' Drinkin' Woman


I had a smokin drinkin' woman,
she never did treat me right,
Camels in the mornin',
and vodka all through the night,
smokin' drinkin' woman,
she get drunk and want to start a fight,
She drove me out a the house in the mornin',
and had me scared to go home at night.

When she got up in the mornin'
couldn't wait to light one up,
then she go in the kitchen,
drinkin' booze from her coffee cup,
had a smokin drinkin' woman,
she get drunk and want to start a fight,
She drove me out a the house in the mornin'
and had me scared to go home at night.

When she gets drunk and jilted,
she goes upside of my head,
I wanted to go to sleep,
but I was just too afraid,
smokin drinkin' woman,
why don t you treat me right?
She drove me out a the house in the mornin'
and had me scared to go home at night.

Now she always smoke and drink
like it's goin' out of style
I asked her when she quit
she said maybe after a while
smokin drinkin' woman,
she get drunk and want to start a fight,
She drove me out a the house in the mornin'
and had me scared to go home at night.

I Heard Her Heart Beat Like a Hammer



I heard my baby's heart beat like a hammer
like a train movin' on down the line.
I heard my baby's heart beat like a hammer
like a train movin' on down the line.
I was waitin' at her door,
hopin' that my engine would be on time.

She smiles and tugs my heartstrings,
my world trembles when she walks,
she say kyah and ku, ku, ku,
and all that baby talk,
I heard my baby's heart beat like a hammer
like a train movin' on down the line.
I was waitin' at her door,
hopin' that my engine would be on time.

The best smell is not in flowers
best honey's not from a bee
the best music is her voice melody
the best things in life are free,
I heard my baby's heart beat like a hammer
like a train movin' on down the line.
I was waitin' at her door,
hopin' that my engine would be on  time.

Lyrics for:  Rat Stompin' Blues Volume II
(BB05, 1997)

Rat Stompin Blues (Part 2)

Got rats in my house,
count their legs 2, 3, 4,
Got rats in my house,
count their legs 2, 3, 4,
gonna tell you one time,
rats I'm warnin' you from my door.

Got home last night and went,
'round the back,
seen a lot of tracks from a
two legged rat.
Mr. Rat
go 'way from my door
'Cause it's a sad rat
ain't got his own hole

I begged and pleaded
Mr. Rat go 'way from my door,
I'm givin' you 'till sundown
don't want to see you no more
Mr. Rat
go 'way from my door
'Cause it's a sad rat
ain't got his own hole

Rats in my bed,
far as the eye can see
I know you  got to make a livin'
but please not off of me
Mr. Rat, Mr. Rat
I'm warnin' you from my door
'Cause it's a sad rat
ain't got his own hole.

Can't Let Go, Can't Go On


I can't let go
even though you' re doin' me wrong
I can't let go
even though you' re doin' me wrong,
We're driftin'' apart
our love just can't go on.

I should have known.
right from the start,
you called back your other man
and knew his number by heart.
I can't go on
lovin' you this way.
Went out for 21 days
came back and everything's changed.

This is my last good-bye,
my last good-bye, I say.
the more  I tried to love you,
the further you pushed me away.
I can't let go
Though you keep givin' me the Blues.
This is our last night together,
you got somethin' better to do.

Little Queen of Hearts


She's the little Queen of hearts,
an' the men will not let her be.
She's the little Queen of hearts,
an' the men will not let her be.
She plays with her stacked deck,
too many jokers for me.

Now when she starts to shuffle,
she can shuffle from dusk 'till dawn,
She started shufflin' one evenin',
next mornin' she still goin' strong.
She's the little Queen of hearts,
kept her King in the hole.
She's the little Queen of hearts,
and it's my heart she stole.

When I was lovin' her,
found out my love don't mean a thing.
When I was lovin' her,
found out my love don't mean a thing.
'Cause she had a one eyed Jack,
and a suicide King.

Now she's takin' too many tricks,
'cause a card laid is a card played,
told me she was lovin' me for kicks,
and now she wants to be paid.
She's the little Queen of hearts.
an' the men will not let her be.
She plays with her stacked deck,
too many jokers for me.

She dealt me from the bottom,
kept her King in the hole,
She dealt me from the bottom,
kept her King in the hole,
She's the little Queen of hearts,
and it's my heart she stole.
