Bye Bye Johnny

She drew out all her money out of the Southern Trust
And put her little boy aboard a Greyhound Bus
Leaving Louisiana for the Golden West
Down came the tears from her happiness
Her own little son name 'o Johnny B. Goode
Was gonna made some motion pictures out in Hollywood

Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Good bye Johnny B. Goode

She remembered taking money out from the gathering crop
And buying Johnny's guitar at a broker shop
As long as he would play it by the railroad side
And wouldn't get in trouble he was satisfied
But never thought that there would come a day like this
When she would have to give her son a goodbye kiss

Going
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Good bye Johnny B. Goode

She finally got the letter she was dreaming of
Johnny wrote and told her he had felt in love
As soon as he was married he would bring her back
And build a mension for 'em by the railroad track
So every time they heard the locomotive roar
They'd be a' standin', a' wavin' by the kitchen door

Howling
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Good bye Johnny B. Goode

 

Calling

I've never been a loner
Never been to California but I wanted to
I thought it was dreams in my head
I've never been a moaner
But I'll get to Arizona if it kills me to
I wish I could fly from my bed

And it's calling me over
And it's calling me home
Let's talk it over
I'm calling, calling, crawling, crawling
Rolling me over
And it's rolling me home
I'm glad all over
It's calling, calling, I'm crawling my way home

I wrote a little letter
But it didn't make it better, I was aiming to
But you read it wrong, what I said
Hold on, it doesn't matter
What was written in the letter and I'm telling you
It's not just some dream in my head

And it's calling me over
And it's calling me home
Let's talk it over
I'm calling, calling, crawling, crawling
Rolling me over
And it's rolling me home
I'm glad all over
It's calling, calling, I'm crawling my way home

I could always go along without you
You know I could do it alone and I would
'Cos I'm a prima donna, gonna go ahead
I'm gonna, gonna get my own way if I can

And it keeps calling me over
And it's calling me home
Let's talk it over
I'm calling, calling, crawling, crawling
Rolling me over
And it's rolling me home
I'm glad all over
It's calling, calling, I'm crawling, crawling

 

Calling the Shots

She won't drink and she won't swear
You can't take her anywhere at all
She got style but she don't care
She left me beyond repair before

She'll pass you by, boy
She'll try you and tie you in knots
Run for cover
'Cos brother, she's calling the shots

Falling in and falling out
When you know what she's about you're fine
You lost both swings and roundabouts
Can't you see you're running out of time?

She'll pass you by, boy
She'll try you and tie you in knots
Run for cover
'Cos brother, she's calling the shots

She'll make you cry
Wave bye bye as she takes what you've got
Booked another
And lover's still calling the shots

She'll pass you by, boy
She'll try you and tie you in knots
Run for cover
'Cos brother, she's calling the shots

She'll pass you by, boy
She'll try you and tie you in knots
Run for cover
'Cos brother, she's calling the shots

 

Can't Be Done

Everywhere I dare to go, the corners that I turn
I'm sure to see a face I know, someone who doesn't earn
That's all I ever get to hear is other people's woe
Let's climb into a rocket and we'll press the one and go
Although they say it can't be done
Don't say to me it can't be done

Looking how we used to be, the way and what we wore
The things we hoped the future held but always wanted more
If God had meant for man to fly he would have given wings
He didn't, so we have to make the best of everything
So let's not say it can't be done
Although they say it can't be done

Don't say to me everybody says it can't be done
That there ain't no chance at all
Anybody can be right or wrong
When there ain't no chance at all

Half the world is in a mess, the other half as well
I've got a feelin' strange to me I wish that I could tell
It won't be long until we push the button I am sure
So throw away the key while I am locked behind the door
You're telling me it can't be done
Stop telling me it can't be done

Don't say to me everybody says it can't be done
That there ain't no chance at all
Anybody can be right or wrong
When there ain't no chance at all

Half the world is in a mess, the other half as well
I've got a feelin' strange to me I wish that I could tell
It won't be long until we push the button I am sure
So throw away the key while I am locked behind the door
You're telling me it can't be done
Stop telling me it can't be done
Let's pray and pray it can be done
Just pray and pray it can be done

 

Can't Give You More

Now you know this ain't the kind of life for you
It's not the way you thought that it would be
If I could change my way to you
If I could change, it wouldn't be me
And you see

I know I never tried the things I should have done
Oh and time is always passing by
I want to do the things I never done before
So I do try not to tell a lie
When I'm so low, when I'm so high
Yet you cry when I say I can't give you more

First you said you'd never try to slow me down
That ev'rything would work out really fine
But as those walls closed in on us
Your words just fell right out of line
And behind

I know I never tried the things I should have done
And time is always passing by
I want to do the things I never done before
So I do try not to tell a lie
When I'm so low, when I'm so high
Yet you cry when I say I can't give you more

Oh, oh, oh, can't give you more
Can't give any more
Oh, oh, oh, can't give you more
Ain't got any more

Did you figure ours would be an easy thing
Like lazy days of lying in the sun
I told you if you wanted me
That ev'ry day just wouldn't be fun
Now it's done

I know I never tried the thing I should have done
And time is always passing by
I want to do the things I never done before
So I do try not to tell a lie
When I'm so low, when I'm so high
Yet you cry when I say I can't give you more

Oh, oh, oh, can't give you more
Can't give you more
Oh, oh, oh, can't give you more
I ain't got any more
Oh, oh, oh, I ain't got any more
I ain't got any more
Oh, oh, oh, can't give you more
I ain't got any more

 

Carol

Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Well, come in to my machine, so we can cruse on out
I know a swingin' little joint where we can jump and shout
It's not too far back off the highway not so long a ride
You park your car out in the open, you can walk inside
A little cutie takes your hat and you can thank her ma'am
'Cos ev'ry time you make the scene you find the joint is jammed

Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Well, if you wanna hear some music like the boys are playin'
Hold tight catch your foot, don't let him carry it away
Don't let the heat overcome you, when they play so loud
Oh, don't the music intrigue you, when they get a crowd
If you can't dance, I know you wish you could
I got my eyes on you baby 'cause you dance so good

Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
Oh, Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
Oh, Carol don't...

 

Caroline

If you want to turn me onto
Anything you really want to
Turn me onto your love your love

If the night-time is the right time
Anytime of yours is my time
We can find time for love sweet love

Come on sweet Caroline
You're my sweet Caroline
You know I want to take you
I've really got to make you
Come on sweet Caroline
Take my hand together we can rock-n-roll

When I'm thinking of you sleeping
I'm at home alone and weeping
Are you keeping your love sweet love

Do you still care when I'm not there
Do you really wish I was there
Can I come there for love sweet love

Come on sweet Caroline
You're my sweet Caroline
You know I want to take you
I've really got to make you
Come on sweet Caroline
Take my hand together we can rock-n-roll

 

Centerfold

(J Geils Band)
Does she walk? Does she talk?
Does she come complete?
My homeroom homeroom angel always pulled me from my seat
She was pure like snowflakes, no one could ever stain
The memory of my angel could never cause me pain
The years go by and I'm looking through some girlie magazine
And there's my hometown angel on the pages in between

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold
My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
Angel is a centerfold

Slipping notes, under the desk
While I was thinking about her dress
I was shy, I turned away, before she caught my eye
I was shakin' in my shoes whenever she flashed those baby blues
Something had a hold on me when Angel passed close by
Those soft and fuzzy sweaters, so magical to touch
To see her in that negligee is really just too much.

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold
My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
Angel is a centerfold

Come on
Nah nah nah nah nah nah....

It's okay, I understand
This ain't no never-never land
I hope that when this issue's gone
I'll see you when your clothes are on
Take your car, yes we will, we'll take your car and drive it
Take it to a hotel room, and get 'em off in private
A part of me has just been ripped
The pages from my mind are stripped
Oh no, I can't deny it
Oh yeah, I guess I got to buy it

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold
My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
Angel is a centerfold

Come on
Nah nah nah nah nah nah..

 

Chadillac Ranch

Well there she sits buddy just a-gleaming in the sun
There to greet a working man when his day is done
I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt
I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch

Eldorado fins, heavy whitewalls and skirts
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back
And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark shiny and black
Open up your engines let `em roar
Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

James Dean in that Mercury `49
Junior Johnson runnin' through the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark shiny and black
Open up them engines let `em roar
Tearing up the highway, just a big old dinosaur

Hey little girl in the blue jeans so tight
Drivin' alone through the Wisconsin night
You're my last love, baby, you're my last chance
Don't let `em take me to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark shiny and black
Pulled up to my house today
Came and took my little girl away

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark, shiny and black
Open up them engines let `em roar
Tearing up the highway, just a big old dinosaur

Cadillac, Cadillac
Cadillac, Cadillac
Cadillac, Cadillac
Cadillac, Cadillac

 

Ciao - Ciao

You messed up all of my plans
You gave zip, took with both hands
You play down whatever I do
I got stuffed dealing with you, oh

You don't hear half what I say
You break off, turning away
I make moves, keeping in tune
You make waves, always too soon, oh-oh

Ciao-ciao baby now, run around anyhow
Break down, leave town,pick on another sucker
Ciao-ciao show me how you can make it anyhow
I won't be around, you'll have to follow up
Another clown, next town, clean him out, run him round
Ciao-ciao baby now, you'd better find another
You'll find another sucker

You played nights, sleeping all day
You played all the money away
Your first love is living like this
Those shoes, and look at that dress, oh

You wind up all of my friends
You burn them off at both ends
I don't think I can recall
Your being humble at all, oh-oh

Ciao-ciao baby now, run around anyhow
Break down, leave town, we got another sucker
Ciao-ciao show me now you can make it anyhow
I won't be around, you'll have to follow up
Another clown, next town, meany-mouthed, running round
Ciao-ciao baby now, you'd better find another
You'll find another sucker

She's all right, dance all right
She's cool, she's all right

You played nights, sleeping all day
You played all the money away
Your first love is living like this
Those shoes, and look at that dress, oh-oh

Ciao-ciao baby now, run around anyhow
Break down, leave town, we got another sucker
Ciao-ciao show me now you can make it anyhow
I won't be around, you'll have to follow up
Another clown, next town, meany-mouthed, running round
Ciao-ciao baby now, you'd better find another
You'll find another sucker
Ciao-ciao baby now, run around anyhow
Break down, leave town, we got another sucker

Ciao-ciao show me now you can make it anyhow
I won't be around, you'll have to follow up
Another clown, next town, meany-mouthed, running round
