Take It Easy

 

 

Well, I’m running down the road

tryin’ to loosen my load

I’ve got seven women on

my mind,

Four that wanna own me,

Two that wanna stone me,

One says she’s a friend of mine

Take It easy, take it easy

Don’t let the sound of your own wheels

drive you crazy

Lighten up while you still can

don’t even try to understand

Just find a place to make your stand

and take it easy

Well, I’m a standing on a corner

in Winslow, Arizona

and such a fine sight to see

It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed

Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me

Come on, baby, don’t say maybe

I gotta know if your sweet love is

gonna save me

We may lose and we may win though

we will never be here again

so open up, I’m climbin’ in,

so take it easy

Well I’m running down the road trying to loosen

my load, got a world of trouble on my mind

lookin’ for a lover who won’t blow my

cover, she’s so hard to find

Take it easy, take it easy

don’t let the sound of your own

wheels make you crazy

come on baby, don’t say maybe

I gotta know if your sweet love is

gonna save me, oh oh oh

Oh we got it easy

We oughta take it easy

 

Witchy Woman

 

Raven hair and ruby lips

sparks fly from her finger tips

Echoed voices in the night

she’s a restless spirit on an endless flight

wooo hooo witchy woman, see how

high she flies

woo hoo witchy woman she got

the moon in her eye

She held me spellbound in the night

dancing shadows and firelight

crazy laughter in another

room and she drove herself to madness

with a silver spoon

woo hoo witchy woman see how high she flies

woo hoo witchy woman she got the moon in her eye

Well I know you want a lover,

let me tell your brother, she’s been sleeping

in the Devil’s bed.

And there’s some rumors going round

someone’s underground

she can rock you in the nighttime

’til your skin turns red

woo hoo witchy woman

see how high she flies

woo hoo witchy woman

she got the moon in her eye

 

Chug All Night

 

You scare me a bit,

but that’s all right

you know when I want you

most every night

And I’ve been meaning to tell

you baby that it makes no sense

still I’m finally convinced

yeah yeah

I believe we could chug all night

I believe we could hug all night

The band is loose and the groove

is right you’re so much woman I

believe we could chug all night

On the day that I die, well

I just might scream

If I’m alive in the morning

Ill be alive in a dream

You better listen to me baby

Cause you know that I’m hung on you

till I’m blind and black and blue

No one else will do

I do believe we chug all night

I believe we could hug all night

The band is loose and the groove is right

You’re so much woman I believe

we could chug all night

No woman ever do what you do

High on a pleasure wheel

No devil ever cast a voodoo

so long and dark and real

We’re gonna do a little chugging

We’re gonna do a little hugging

The band is loose and the groove is right

I’m wired for sound

Are you wired for light?

And you’re so much woman,

I believe we could chug all night

I said a yeah yeah yeah

yeah yeah

Woo! It’s only midnight baby

Come on and do it to me

 

Most Of Us Are Sad

 

Most of us are sad

No one lets it show

I’ve been shadows of myself

How was I to know?

Tell me scarlet sun

what will time allow?

We have brought our children

here Who can save them now?

Oh, Weeping woman try to smile

Like the coming dawn

Most of us are sad it’s true

Still we must go on

Love was here today

Oh the sun was bright

I will sing you faraway

Love is here tonight

Most of us are sad

No one lets it show

I’ve been shadows of myself

How was I to know?

 

Nightingale

 

I’m hanging on to my peace of mind

I just don’t know

I’m hanging on to those good times, baby

Just want to let them roll

I’m gonna make it to the light and joy

I’ll tell you why

I got a woman who can take me there

the apple of my eye

oh, I just don’t know, no no, no, no

I love her so

Don’t let me see that morning paper

cause I don’t need those dues

it’s just the same old murder movie

but they call it the news

I’ll tell you what would be some story

and what would set me free

Is if the same thing happened to everybody

that just happened to me, oh,

I just don’t know, no, no, no, no

I’ll never let her go

Every time I hear somebody sneakin’

up behind whoa, I turn around

but I still hear that sound

and just when I’m about to lose my mind

Here comes my baby

singing like a nightingale

Coming my way down along that devastation

trail well tell the Lord above

she’s got a brand of love

that cannot fail

I’m hanging on to my peace of mind

that’s no lie

I’m hanging on to my special friend

the apple of my eye

my inspiration, too

she’s got a lead on my heart and

my soul and she knows just what to do

oh, I just don’t know, no ,no, no, no

No, I get so low, and my mind’s about to go

but wait a minute, here comes my baby

singing like a nightingale

coming my way down along that devastation

trail

Well, let the fires burn, let the

floods return

we will prevail

Hanging on to my peace of mind

I just don’t know

 

Train Leaves Here This Morning

 

I lost ten points just for being in the right place

at exactly the wrong time

I looked right at the facts there, but I may as well have

been completely blind

So, if you see me walking all alone

Don’t look back, I’m just on my way back home

there’s a train leaves here this morning, and

I don’t know, what I might be on

She signed me to a contract, baby said it would

all be so life long

I looked around then for a reason

when there wasn’t something more to blame it on

But, if time makes a difference while we’re gone

Tell me now, and I won’t be hanging on

There’s a train leaves here this morning

and I don’t know, what I might be on

ooo, ooo, ooo.. etc…

1320 North Columbus was the address

that I wrote down on my sleeve

I don’t know just what she wanted

might have been that it was getting time to leave

and I watched as the smoker passed it on

and I laughed when the joker said, “Lead on.”

cause there’s a train leaves here this morning

and I don’t know, what I might be on

And there’s train leaves here this morning

and I don’t know, what I might be on

 

Take The Devil

 

Open up your eyes

take the devil from your mind

he’s been holding on to you

and you’re so hard to find

the wind outside is cold

restless feeling in my soul

tempting me to get away

but there’s no place a man can go

God, will you lead me where I roam?

Help me not to let my feelings show

No, No You are the one, oh, how could you be

so blind?

the devil prays on runaways

he’s never far behind

the many years I’ve tried

Now have been revealed to me

closer is the love you’ll find

waiting so patiently

God, Will you lead me where I roam?

Help me not to let my feelings show.

NO, NO

Take the devil

Take the Devil

from your mind

 

Earlybird

 

Early in the morning

about the break of day

the earlybird is working

so his life don’t fade away

spends his life denying that

he’s got no time for flying

in the breeze

High up on his own, the eagle flies alone

and he is free

Earlybird is scratching though

the going’s getting tough

time is passing by him and he just

can’t get enough

He’ll tell you all is well when

all is really going wrong

the Earlybird will wake one day

and find his life is gone

You know I like to lay in bed

and sleep out in the sun

Reading books and playing crazy music

just for fun

You know it makes feel so fine

and puts my mind at ease to

know that I don’t harm a soul

in doing what I please

aaahhhh, ahhhh , ahhhhh ahhh…..

Any old day you say,

ain’t gonna fade away

any old day you say,

ain’t gonna fade away

 

Peaceful Easy Feeling

 

I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,

against your skin, it’s so brown

and I wanna sleep with you

in the desert tonight

with a billion stars all around

’cause I gotta peaceful easy feeling

and I know you won’t let me down

’cause I’m already standing on the

ground

And I found out a long time ago

what a woman can do to your soul

Ah, but she can’t take you anyway

You don’t already know how to go

and I gotta peaceful, easy feeling

and I know you won’t let me down

’cause I’m already standing on the ground

I get this feeling I may know you

as a lover and a friend

but this voice keeps whispering

in my other ear, tells me

I may never see you again

’cause I get a peaceful, easy feeling

and I know you won’t let me down

’cause I’m already standing on the ground

’cause I’m already standing…

on the ground

oooo, oooo

 

Tryin’

 

I’m just arriving in the city

and there’s music on my mind

lookin’ for my destination and

my home is far behind

‘Cause it’s a long road ahead

and you can make it in the end

and I’m gonna make it with my friends

And I’m tryin’

It took me sometime to see it

now I’m looking through this world

and it’s gonna take some time before

I get back, help me girl

’cause you can make it if you try

you gotta lay it on the line

and everything will be fine if you try

Sittin’ smokin’ just a thinkin’

is an easy thing to do

We gotta keep on trying for

the feelin’ to come through

and it’s a lonely way to live

you gotta take it, you gotta live

if you mistake it, just try again

and I’m trying, yeah!

Got to keep on trying

Ah, we got to keep on trying

Yeah I’m trying…. etc..
