I Still Do Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Alabama Woman Blues

Did you ever go down
On the Mobile and K C line

Did you ever go down
On the Mobile and K C line

I just want to ask you
Did you ever see that gal of mine

I rode the Central
And I hustled the L and N

I rode the Central
And I hustled the L and N

The Alabama women
They live like section men

Don't cry baby
Your papa will be home some day

Don't cry baby
Your papa will be home some day

I've been away baby
But I did not go to stay

Don't the clouds look lonesome
Across the deep blue sea

Don't the clouds look lonesome
Across the deep blue sea

Don't my gal look good
When she's coming after me

Can't Let You Do It

Well you got some high class baby
Steppin' all over me
With your high tone and your blue line
Respectability

You go down on the corner
Havin' yourself a ball
Changed your way of livin'
And I don't know you at all

I can't let you do it
I can't let you do it to me
I know you're gonna do it
But I can't let you do it to me

If the sun don't shine no more
And the blue sky don't appear
The rainfall don't fall no more
I really don't think you'd care
You got so wrapped up, baby
In everything you do
Been putting on the dog, you know
And I mean you

I can't let you do it
I can't let you do it to me
I know you're gonna do it
But I can't let you do it to me

If you don't shut down miss banquet
If you don't shut down real soon
Gonna find yourself out on the street
Looking for another room
You've seen me on the corner
Having myself a ball
Gonna change my way of living
And you won't know me at all

I can't let you do it
I can't let you do it to me
I know you're gonna do it
But I can't let you do it to me

I Will Be There

When times are hard
And friends are few
And you need someone
To help you through
Just call my name
And I'll come running to your side
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid

I will be there
(When you are lost, lost in the night
Nowhere to turn)
I will be there
(Don't be afraid, don't be afraid)

When morning comes
And nothing's changed
And the world outside
Plays the same old game
Just call on me
And I will ease your lonely heart
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid

I will be there
(When you are lost, lost in the night
Nowhere to turn)
I will be there
(Don't be afraid, don't be afraid)
I will be there
(When everyone that you believed
Still lets you down)
I will be there
(Don't be afraid, don't be afraid)

I will be there, don't be afraid
I will be there, don't be afraid
When morning comes
And nothing's changed
And the world outside
Plays the same old game
When everyone still lets you down
I will be there
When times are hard
And friends are few
And you need someone to help you through
I will be there, don't be afraid
I will be there, don't be afraid
I will be there

Spiral

You don't know how much this means
To have this music in me
I just keep playing these blues
Hoping that I don't lose

I just keep playing my song
Hoping that I get along
You don't know how much it means
To have this music in me

In the morning
In the daytime
In the evening
In the nighttime too
I gotta have it
I gotta have this blues
I gotta have it

You don't know how much it means
To have this music in me
I just keep playing my song
Hoping that I get along

In the morning
In the daytime
In the night
In the night time too
In the morning
In the daytime
In the evening
In the midnight hours

I gotta have it
I gotta have
I gotta have this blues
I gotta have it
I gotta have

Catch The Blues

I've been willing to bet
You ain't got nothin' to lose
I ain't figured out yet
How you've been walking in my shoes
Somebody tell me how to talk to you

Ain't it funny
You might even
Catch the blues

I've been willing to bet
You ain't got nothing to say
I ain't figured out yet
How i've been getting in your way
Somebody tell me how to play for you

Ain't it funny
You might even
Catch the blues

Living in a world of pain
I've been living in a world of pain
Without you making the difference
Oh i've been going insane
But i can't go on without calling out your name

I've been willing to bet
You ain't got nothing to show
I ain't figure out yet
Where you've been pointed me to go
Somebody tell me how to get to you

Ain't it funny
You might even
Catch the blues

Living in a world of pain
I've been living in a world of pain
Without you making the difference
Oh i've been going insane
But i can't go on without calling out your name

Cypress Grove

I would rather to be buried
In some cypress grove
I would rather to be buried
In some cypress grove
Than to have a contrary woman
Lord, I never can control

And when yo' knee bones
Go to achin'
An your body gettin' cold
When yo' knee bones
Go to achin'
And yo' body gettin' cold
You know, you jes' gettin' ready
Honey, for some cypress grove

Then I would rather be buried
Six feet in the clay
Then I would rather to be buried
Six feet in the clay
Then to be way up here
In New York City
Honey, treated this't-a-way

An I will drink muddy water
I'll sleep in a hollow log
I will drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Befo' I stay up here
Honey, treated like a dog

Yes, I'm goin' away
Honey, don't you want to go?
Yes, I'm goin' away
Honey, don't you wants to go?
I'm scared to go back down south
Them people goin' kill me, sho'

I'm gonna sing this song
An I ain't goin' to sing no mo'
I'm goin' to sing this song, an I
I ain't goin' to sing no mo'
Because my time has done got precious
Baby, Lord, just got
I've got to go, yeah

Little Man, You've Had A Busy Day

I know why you're cryin', I know why you're blue
Someone took your kiddy-car away
Time to go to sleep now
Little man, you've had a busy day

Someone took your marbles, tell you what I'll do
Dad'll get you new ones right away
Time to go to sleep now
Little man, you've had a busy day

Put away your soldiers, the battle has been won
Enemy is out of sight
Come along there soldier, and put away your gun
The war is over for tonight

Time to stop your schemin', time your day was through
Listen to the jukebox softly play
It's time to go to sleep now
Little man, you've had a busy day

Time to stop your schemin', time your day was through
Listen to the jukebox softly say
It's time to go to sleep now
Little man, you've had a busy day
It's time to go to sleep now
Little man, you've had a busy day

Stones In My Passway

I got stones in my passway, and my road seem dark as night
I got stones in my passway, and my road seem dark as night
I got pain in my heart, they have taken my appetite

I have a bird to whistle, and I have a bird to sing
I have a bird to whistle, and I have a bird to sing
I got a woman that I'm lovin', boy, but she don't mean a thing

My enemies have betrayed me, have overtaken poor Bob at last
My enemies have betrayed me, have overtaken poor Bob at last
And there's one thing certainly, they have stones all in my pass

Now you tryin' to take my life, and all my lovin' too
You laid a passway for me, now what are you trying to do?
And I'm cryin' please, please let us be friends
And when you hear me howlin' in my passway, rider, please open your door and let me in

I got three lane's to truck home, boys, please don't block my road
I got three lane's to truck home, boys, please don't block my road
I've been feelin' ashamed 'bout my rider, babe, I'm booked and I got to go

I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive as you or me
Tearing through these quarters
In the utmost misery
With a blanket underneath his arm
And a coat of solid gold
Searching for the very souls
Already have been sold

"Arise, arise," he cried so loud
In a voice without restraint
"Come out, ye gifted kings and queens
And hear my sad complaint
No martyr is among you now
Whom you can call your own
Go on your way accordingly
But know you're not alone"

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive with fiery breath
And I dreamed I was amongst the ones
That put him out to death
Oh, I awoke in anger
So alone and terrified
I put my fingers against the glass
And bowed my head and cried

Somebody's Knockin'

Somebody's knocking
Somebody's knocking at my door
Somebody's knocking
Somebody's knocking on my door
Well, it must be my woman
Coming 'round here for more

Somebody whispers
Somebody whispers in my ear
Somebody whispers
Somebody whispers in my ear
It must be my woman
I can feel her when she's near

O-o-o-o, she can get right down
O-o-o-o, she can get right down
Oh, it must be my woman
Make me love when I am down

I'll Be Seeing You

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day and through

In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut trees, the wishing well

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In everything that's bright and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut trees, the wishing well

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In everything that's bright and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you
