Smiling Phases
05:11
Do yourself a favor,
Wake up to your mind
Life is what you make it
You see, but still you're blind

Get yourself together,
Give before you take
You'll find out the hard way,
Soon you're gonna break
Hey hey hey

Smiling phases
Showing traces
Even if they bust you
Keep on smiling through and through
And you'll be amazed at the gaze
On their faces as they sentence you

You don't need a lawyer
When you're in a fix
Someone gets to pay up
Your friends are full of tricks
But happiness is something
That you just can't buy
Own up to the truth girl,
Your love has gone on by

Smiling Phases bring you flowers
You can line 'em up
And you can watch 'em grow for hours
And you'll be amazed at the way that they stare
as they walk by your door.

Do yourself a favor,
Wake up to your mind
Life is what you make it
You see, but still you're blind

Get yourself together,
Give before you take
You'll find out the hard way,
Soon you're gonna break
Hey hey hey

Smiling phases
Going Places
Even if they bust you
Keep on smiling through and through
And you'll be amazed at the gaze
On their faces as they sentence... you!!
Sometimes in Winter
03:09
Sometimes in Winter
I gaze into the streets
and walk through snow and city sleet
behind your room

Sometimes in Winter
forgotten memories
remember you behind the trees
with leaves that cried

By the window once I waited for you
laughing slightly you would run
trees alone would shield us in the meadow
makin' love in the evening sun

Now you're gone girl
and the lamp posts call your name
I can hear, them
in the spring of frozen rain
now you're gone girl
and the time's slowed down till dawn
It's a cold room and the walls ask
where you've gone

Sometimes In Winter
I love you when the good times
seem like mem'ries int he spring
that never came

Sometimes In Winter
I wish the empty streets
Would fill with laughter from the tears
that ease my pain
More and More
03:04
Uh huh,
Hey yeah, yeah yeah...
Like medicine baby
you're good for me
Like honey, darlin' girl
I know you're sweet to me
Each passing day,
brings us much closer together
and the love you bring me darlin'
just gets better and better
that's why my love for you
keeps on growin'
more and more
all the time
more and more
all the time, yeah!

Uh huh,
Gonna say it again, now now now
Hah!
Like a ship that's driftin' baby
you're apart from me
like old man time
you controll my destiny
if from my life, you ever tried to go
it would destroy in a second
what took a lifetime to mold
that's why my love for you
just keeps on growin'
more and more
all the time
more and more
all the time

Uh huh
Let me hear ya!

As sure as a sunrise
I'll stand by your side
as sure as the daybreak
I'll love you for Heaven's Sake
I'm ready to pay, yeah
my dues for lovin' you
For lovin' you too much woman,
you know I stand accused

More,
and more
all the time
More and More!
Yeah
And When I Die
04:06
I'm not scared of dying
and I, don't really care
if it's peace you find in dying,
well then, let the time be near

If it's peace you find in dying,
well then dying time is near
just bundle up my coffin,
'cause it's cold way down there,
I hear that it's cold way down there, yeah
crazy cold, way down there

And when I die, and when I'm gone
there'll be one child born in this world
to carry on, to carry on

Now troubles are many
there as deep as a well
I can swear there ain't no Heaven
but I pray there ain't no hell
Swear there ain't no Heaven
and I'll pray there ain't no hell
but I'll never know by livin'
only my dyin' will tell, yes only my
dyin' will tell, oh yeah,
Only my dyin' will tell

And when I die, and when I'm gone
there'll be one child born in this world
to carry on, to carry on
yeah yeah

Give me my freedom
for as long as I be
All I ask of livin'
is to have no chains on me
All I ask of livin'
is to have no chains on me
And all I ask of dyin' is to
go natrually, only wanna
go naturally
Here I go!
hey hey
Here come the devil right behind
look out children, here he come
here he come, heyyy

Don't wanna go by the devil
don't wanna go by the demon
don't wanna go by satan
don't wann die uneasy
just let me go
naturally

And when I die, and when I'm dead, dead and gone
there'll be one child born in our world
to carry on, to carry on
God Bless the Child
05:55
Them that's got, shall get
them that's not, shall lose
so the Bible said, and it still is news
mama may have, and papa may have
God bless' the child,
that's got his own
that's got his own

Yes the strong seem to get more
while the weak ones fade
empty pockets don't
ever make the grade
As mama may have
and papa may have
God bless' the child
that's got his own
that's got his own.

And when you got money,
you got a lots of friends
crowdin' 'round your door
When the money's gone
and all you're spendin' ends
they won't be 'round any more
no, no, no more

And rich relations
may give you
a crust of bread and such
you can help yourself
but don't take too much
mama may have
and your papa may have
but God bless' the child
that's got his own
that's got his own
God bless' the child who can stand up and say

I've got my own
Ev'ry child's, got to have his own!
Spinning Wheel
04:08
Also available on:
What goes up must come down
Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round
Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin

You got no money and you got no home
Spinnin' wheel all alone
Talkin' 'bout your troubles and you never learn
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel turn

Did you find the directing sign on the
Straight and narrow highway
Would you mind a reflecting sign
Just let it shine within your mind
And show you the colors that are real

Someone is waiting just for you
Spinnin' wheel, spinnin' true
Drop all your troubles by the riverside
You've Made Me So Very Happy
04:19
Also available on:
I lost at love before
Got mad and closed the door
But you said "Try, just once more"
I chose you for the one
Now we're having so much fun
You treated me so kind
I'm about to lose my mind
You made me so very happy

The others were untrue
But when it came to loving you
I'd spend my whole life with you
Cause you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always showed me that
Loving you was where it's at
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life yeah

I love you so much you see
You're even in my dreams
I can hear you, I can hear you callin me
I'm so in love with you
All I ever want to do is
Thank you baby, thank you baby

You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life
You made me so very happy
You made me so so very happy baby
I'm so glad you came
Into my life
I want to thank you girl
Every day of my life
I want to thank you
You made me so very happy
Blues - part II
11:44
Mmm Mmmm
There's been some women in my life, yeah
you could say I've known my share
Some of them cried for me
some of them just didn't care, mmmm
some of them been hard on me
some of them tore me up deep inside
some of them were good to me, mmm
some of them never even tried
But woman, let me tell you
you're ev'ry girl I've ever known
you make me feel so very happy sometimes
and then you make me feel so all alone
and sometimes I reach out for you
yeah, but you just won't take my hand
and sometimes in winter
when I'm lonely tired and cold
you know if feels so good in the middle of the night
just to have your hand to hold
please, why don't you tell me where I stand
yeah, take my hand
don't turn your back on me girl, no
turn around and take a good long look at a man in love
Mmmmmmm, yeah yeah yeah
Turn around right now
take a good look at a man who needs your love, yeah
can you see him baby?
tell me what you see!
I want to know, does he look like your man
And if he does, I want you to tell me one little thing
tell me, whoa
why don't you hold him, love him, kiss him, squeeze him
stand beside him, never let him go, ohhh
God knows you love him
