Modern Girl

She's a modern girl in a modern world
Where only the strong can survive.
Too many dreams have been laid at her door,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Where would you fit in the scheme of her day
And where could you fit in her heart?
Trying to be small will get you nowhere at all,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.

She moves through your life like a warm summer breeze,
And nothing will stand in her way.
The sound of her voice brings your heart to its knees,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Motherless Child

If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm.
If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm.
Well, I'm a motherless child; I don't know right from wrong.

Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last night?
Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last night?
Well, you didn't come home till the sun was shining bright.

I had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled.
Had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled.
Well, he's had a lotta women, gonna let my ham bones burn.

Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done.
Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done.
Well, I give you my jelly, he ain't give you none.

And when you see two women, always running hand in hand.
When you see two women, always running hand in hand.
You can bet your bottom dollar, one got the other one's man.

Lord, I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair.
I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair.
And if the blues overtake me, gonna rock away from here.

 

Motherless Children

Motherless children have a hard time when mother is dead, lord.
Motherless children have a hard time when mother is dead, lord.
They don't have anywhere to go;
Wandering around from door to door.
Nobody treats you like a mother will when your mother is dead, lord.

Father will do the best he can when your mother is dead, lord.
Father will do the best he can when your mother is dead, lord.
Father will do the best he can;
So many things a father can't understand.
Nobody treats you like a mother will when your mother is dead, lord.

Sister will do the best she can when your mother is dead, lord.
Sister will do the best she can when your mother is dead, lord.
Sister will do the best she can;
So many things a sister can't understand.
Nobody treats you like a mother will when your mother is dead.

When your mother is dead, when your mother is dead.
When your mother is dead, Lord, when your mother is dead.

 

Mother's Lament

Are we rolling? a one, a two, a three, a four...

A mother was washing her baby one night;
The youngest of ten and a delicate mite.
The mother was poor and the baby was thin;
'twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin.

The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack.
She was only a moment but when she turned back
Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried,
"oh, where has my baby gone? " the angels replied:

Oh, your baby has gone down the plug hole.
Oh, your baby has gone down the plug.
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin,
He should have been washed in a jug, in a jug.

Your baby is perfectly happy;
He won't need a bath anymore.
He's a-muckin' about with the angels above,
Not lost but gone before.

Do you want to do it again?

 

My Father's Eyes

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.

Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
When I look in my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.

Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

 

N.S.U.

Driving in my car,
Smoking my cigar,
The only time I'm happy's when I play my guitar.

Sailing in my yacht,
What a lot I got,
Happiness is something that just cannot be bought.

I've been in and I'm out,
I've been up and down,
I don't want to go until I've been all around.

What's it all about,
Anyone in doubt,
I don't want to go until I've found it all out.

 

Needs His Woman

You left him standing in the pouring rain.
There's every chance he'll go insane.
And someone comes along and takes his hand.
He must have love, can't you understand that

He needs his woman,
He needs his woman,
And he needs his woman,
He needs his woman to love.

His hands are shaking and his head hangs down.
No peace of mind for him is found.
Break his heart and then you'll set him free.
Someone must save him, just you wait and see, but

Chorus

What will it take till you believe his love is real?
Nobody said he had to love you, now he always will.

He'll walk that lonely road again today.
The love he gave you, you threw away.
When all he wanted was a hand to hold.
His lonely world has grown so cold and

Chorus

Never Make You Cry

It's so easy loving you
With everything I feel inside,
And holding me the way you do,
It's here I'm staying all of my life.

I'll never ever make you cry.
I'll never ever say goodbye.
Can't you see it in my eyes?
I'm yours until the day I die.

I'll watch you fall asleep at night,
I'll smile and kiss you, hold you tight,
I'll hold your hand and close my eyes,
It's here I'm staying all of my life.

Next Time You See Her

She's got everything a man could ever ask for.
She is lovely, brighter than a morning star.
She is so beautiful, portrait of a sunset.
She got everything, including my old car.

[Chorus:]
Next time you see her, tell her that I love her.
Next time you see her, tell her that I care.
Next time you see her, tell her that I love her.
Next time I see you, boy you'd better beware.

I'm just trying to warn you that you're bound to get hurt.
I couldn't be her last love, so how could you be her first?
I want to tell you, buddy, things are bound to get rough.
I know that she's only flirting, but I think that I've had enough.

[Chorus]

And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.
And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.

[Chorus]

And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.
And if you see her again, I will surely kill you.

[Chorus]

 

No Alibis

I beg your pardon, hello darlin'
This is me you're talkin' to
Sit down and tell me about it
You don't have to shout it at me
Tell me what you really want to do

Don't give me no alibis
No untrue stories you're trying to justify
Don't want no alibis
Just another reason for another lie

Mountain gets steeper
The hole you dig gets deeper
You better stop and climb out
'Cause I'm trying to give it all to you
Baby I can see right through you
Sometimes you lose what it's all about

Don't give me no alibis
Can't go through life trying to justify
Don't want no alibis
Just another reason for another lie

Chorus

Mountain gets steeper
The hole you dig is getting deeper
Better reach out and pull yourself out
Nobody ever gonna love you the way that I love you
And I never want to see you doin' without
