LYRICS

YAZOO QUEEN

It was a black night

No moon to howl to

Notta’ dime for my mind in sight

Can't get my head right

Famished and edgy

Looking for love 

On the brick

Down hearted

Got tunnel vision

Hotter than mid day July

I feel my hands shake

I know what I'm missing 

Someone to hold in the night

 

She fire me up

When she lay me down

Lil ‘Yazoo Queen 

Gotta hold on me 

Left me at the delta

To drown  

 

Highway sixteen

Rear view showin’ scars

Moonlight drowns out 

all of the stars

Something pulses 

On my late-night phone

Clouds overhead 

Has gone (get up!)

She hit me up

Feeling alright

She flyin’ solo 

Call me up for a bite

Now I’m knockin’

She making her move

Time slows to a JUN-GLE GROOVE

 

She fire me up!

When she lay me down

Yazoo Queen got a hold 

On me and left me 

In the delta to drown

She fire me up

When she lay me down

Yazoo Queen gotta 

Hold on me and 

Left me in the delta

Left me  in the delta to drown

Left me in the delta to drown 

Left me in the delta to drown

Left me in the delta to drown

THE NOMAD
 

The Nomad Single Image 2048 x 2048.jpg

He carried his soul

In his 501 jeans

He smiled at the women 

That he wished to tease 

He moved like the ocean

To the beat of the band

Shut out the world ‘round him

With a snap o’ his hand 

 

The jealous ones laugh 

But they lust from inside

Cuz he glows of Everything 

That they fight to hide 

He bad!

Don’t be messin’ around 

He bad!

Yeah he wear the crown

 

With a walk like The Devil

And eyes like the stars 

The Nomad is fff 

To the next waiting bar

Cause he’s BAD!

Best stay out of his way 

He quit school 

Cuz of recess

Honey he don’t play 

 

Left untouched

And looking for cues

In a circus of people

And smoke filled rooms

His glance lit up

Her hungry heart

And set fire to the midnight

With a generous spark

He bad!

He don’t be, messin’ around 

He bad!

When he, he come to town

 

With a walk like The Devil

And eyes like the stars 

The Nomad is off 

To the next waiting bar

Cause he’s BAD!

Best stay out of his way 

He quit school 

Cuz’ of recess

Honey he don’t play 

 

He’s one part Howlin’

Two parts Vaughn 

A little dose of Muddy

You better Leave him alone

One part Freddie

Albert too 

Big shot of BB 

He king of the blues

 

Cuz He’s baaaaaaad 

You best get outta his way

He quit school cuz of recess

Honey He don’t playyyyy

Lost & Lonely

Lost and lonely

That’s what they call me

But I don’t even think 

That’s true

I’m locked and loaded 

Need you to fire me 

Got nothing but time to lose

 

Gimme a long goodnight

Gimme a feeling so right

Gimme the one that I need

Find me a lover

Make me feel it tonight

 

Lost and lonely 

That’s what they call me

But everybody knows my name

I’m fresh and faded 

A man of the world now

Steady steppin up my game

 

Gimme a long goodnight

Gimme a feeling so right

Gimme the one that I need

Find me a lover

Make me feel it 

 

Gotta get you going

On a Friday night 

Fire it up baby 

Make me feel it alright 

Love light baby

Keep it burning all night

Lost and lonely

Changing that feeling tonight

 

Changing, changing

Changing that feeling tonight

 

Gimme a long goodnight

Gimme a feeling so right

Gimme the one that I need

Find me another

Make me feel it Tonight

 

Changing, changing

Changing that feeling tonight

Ch ch changing

Changing, changing

Changing that feeling tonight

That’s right

Changing that feeling tonight

One time

Changing that Feeling tonight

Muscadine Wine

Praying for a deep love

Looking for a little 

help from above

Bring me something that’s real

Something divine

 

When you’re feeling gone

In bed at night

Wid’ the covers thrown

Ya find yourself on the edge

Of destiny’s dawn

(All alone)

 

Bring me something that’s real

Something that’s strong

Something that’s mine

Make it sweet as a grape

On a muscadine vine

Let’s make wine

 

You’ll never find it 

At home

Get out there 

Where the chances Roam

Another’s searching For love 

Searching for time

So divine

 

Bring me something that’s real

Something that’s strong

Something that’s mine

Make it sweet as a grape

On a muscadine vine

Let’s make wine

 

Can we make it sweeter baby?

Something special 

Lasting all my days

Need a little honey baby

From another baby 

No time For living alone

 

Bring me something that’s real

Something that’s strong

Something that’s mine

Make it sweet as a grape

On a muscadine vine

Let’s make wine

 

Bring me something that’s real

Something that’s strong

Something that’s mine

Make it sweet as a grape

On a muscadine vine

Let’s make wine

 

Bring me something that’s real

Something that’s strong

Something that’s mine

Make it sweet as a grape

On a muscadine vine

Let’s make wine

 

Everybody needs some lovin’

Everybody needs some huggin’

Everybody needs some touchin’

Keep searching

Keep searching

Keep searching

Everybody needs some loving

Life is Grand

Eyes open up before daylight

Jump in the spirit 

Of do what’s right

Yesterday’s gone 

Tomorrow’s looking bright

Futures untold there’s so much gold

Nothing left to do 

But Break the mold

Ain’t life GRAND

 

Sun’s going down

The mood is right

Cruise with your baby

Hold her tight

Ain’t life grand

Get a little closer

The heat is on

Nothing left to do 

But get her home

My cup is running over 

Get enough

The end is getting closer

An engine to burn

Stay on the Grind

If you wanna shine

Stay on the grind

Pick it up

Ain’t no way to shortcut

Mama wants this

Sally wants that

Prices go up

Lord knows we working

 

Man on the news 

Tells me the deal

Shortage on gas

Lines at the market

Pandemic on us

People suffer

Wages are low

Boy ya know we feel it

 

Get back! Harder times are coming

Stand strong! They want to see us hurting

Look out! Harder times are coming around

 

Lies on the tube

They give me the blues

We’re further apart

Got us where they want us

Talk to a friend

Lend ‘em a hand

The time is now

Love on every corner

 

Get back! Harder times are coming

Stand strong! They want to see us hurting

Look out! Harder times are coming around

Get back! Harder times are coming

Stand strong! They want to see us hurting

Look out! Harder times are coming around

 

If you wanna survive

Gotta stay on the grind 

That ain’t no jive

Never gonna falter

Ride or die

Gonna put up a fight

People rise up

Love’s still the answer

 

Get back! Harder times are coming

Stand strong! They want to see us hurting

Look out! Harder times are coming around

 

Get back! Harder times are coming

Stand strong! They want to see us hurting

Look out! Harder times are coming around


 

‘Round

Coming around

Coming around

Coming around

Grind 

Stay on the grind

Stay on the grind

Mean Old World

It’s a mean, mean Old World 

It’s a mean, mean Old World

 

Some folks got it coming

From the bad stuff they

Were running 

And every no-good scoundrel 

Sees his day

When the city lights go dim

All the angels sing their hymns

As the demons

Fly like bats into the cave

 

It’s a mean, mean Old World 

It’s a mean, mean Old World

 

Sometimes when you’re able

Ya lay it all on the table

And find yourself some luck

Along the way

Like a soldier home from hell

Sure got a story to tell

Until the beating heart rings 

The final bell

 

It’s a mean, mean Old world

But there’s a flash of light in

Every thunderstorm 

 

Lord our God

Why have we forgotten?

And why must we wander here? 

In grief?

Misled by the evil

That surrounds us

Oh they scoff and

They taunt yeah

they flaunt 

In misery

We come to thee flesh and bone eternal

Defend us from these thoughts

That penetrate

Rescue us from unjust fools and liars

And fill us with the light 

and truth

All over again

 

It’s a mean, mean Old World 

It’s a mean, mean Old World

It’s a mean, mean Old World 

 

With a flash of light in every thunderstorm….
