Black Stone Cherry Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Rain Wizard (3:24)
Here comes the rain

Once I was searchin'
For somethin' to change my ways
Clouds they came rollin'
And from the thunder I heard them say

The rain wizard will wash our hands
Bring magic to our lands
The rain wizard will do it again
Bring magic to our land

Hair strung like silver
And the moons they lit his robe
His boots they are leading
To a path that no one knows

The rain wizard will wash our hands
Bring magic to our lands
The rain wizard will do it again
Bring magic to our land

Here comes the Rain Wizard
2. Backwoods Gold (3:06)
Back woods gold
And I'm back on the road
Playin' moonshine games
But the taste is gonna be the same

Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
I wanna go
Where that hill-tea is flowin'
Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
Take me back home
Where ole' Mary Jane's growin'

A little sign out front
Reads dinner, pool, and lunch
But that card in his hat
Will tell you what's flowin' out the back

Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
I wanna go
Where that hill-tea is flowin'
Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
Take me back home
Where ole' Mary Jane's growin'

Old men laughin'
While the whittle away their past"
The law think they know
But the bootleg man he gets the last laugh

Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
I wanna go
Where that hill-tea is flowin'
Hotrods to hell
And the angels are rollin'
Take me back home
Where ole' Mary Jane's growin'
3. Lonely Train (3:50)
Big train rolling down the line
Makes me lonely
Sometimes I wish to ride away
Sometimes I want to ride away
Yeah

Big plane flying through the clouds
Makes me worry
Sometimes I wish to fly away
Sometimes I want to fly away

[Chorus:]
But you can't judge a book
Looking at the cover
You can't love someone
While messing with another
No, you can't win a war
Fighting with your brother
You wanna have peace
Gotta love one another

Big guns lighting up the sky
Makes me worry
Sometimes I wish to run away
Sometimes I want to run away

[Repeat Chorus:]
But you can't judge a book
Looking at the cover
You can't love someone
While messing with another
No, you can't win a war
Fighting with your brother
You wanna have peace
Gotta love one another

I have seen my brothers
In ashes on the ground
And maybe in a new life
We can turn this thing around

[Repeat Chorus:]
But you can't judge a book
Looking at the cover
You can't love someone
While messing with another
No, you can't win a war
Fighting with your brother
You wanna have peace
Gotta love one another

No you can't judge a book
Gotta love one another
Can't judge a book
No you can't judge a book
4. Maybe Someday (3:47)
I was a young boy
Sittin' in an old house trippin' on rock & roll

You were
A pretty little girl who never listened to what you were told

Maybe someday
You and I will be together
Maybe someday
You and I will find forever
Maybe baby, maybe baby can't live without you
Why? I just don't know
But for now I've got to
Rock & Roll

See you
Sittin' over there messin with your blonde hair but it's alright
Now I'm
Gonna rule the world just another pretty girl who's walked in my sight

Maybe someday
You and I will be together
Maybe someday
You and I will find forever
Maybe baby, maybe baby can't live without you
Why? I just don't know
But for now I've got to
Rock & Roll

Maybe someday, maybe someday
I've got to

Maybe someday, maybe someday
I've got to
Maybe someday, maybe someday
I've got to

Rock & Roll
5. When The Weight Comes Down (3:35)
Lights out on 42nd street in New York City
The Ohio's runnin' backwards down in Louisville, Kentucky
There's a fire on the plains of Kansas City, Kansas
Somebody dropped the bomb
The Louisiana swamps are turnin' red
The Memphis train ain't ever gonna run again
There's a fog rollin' on to Boston, Massachusetts
Who's got the smokin' gun

So where to you wanna be
When all hell breaks loose
Where do you wanna go
When the weight comes down
Watch for foreign soldiers
They'll try to break your neck
And I just wanna break your heart

When the weight comes down
Better run for shelter
These times will break your mind
And I just wanna break your heart

There's too much blood down in the Texas oil
The Rocky Mountain Tops are the only place free
What ever happened to the Carolina beaches
I miss those Georgia peaches

So where to you wanna be
When all hell breaks loose
Where do you wanna go

When the weight comes down
Watch for foreign soldiers
They'll try to break your neck
And I just wanna break your heart

When the weight comes down
Better run for shelter
These times will break your mind
And I just wanna break your heart
6. Crosstown Woman (3:36)
I am just a man of blood and bone
And simple means
That old bossman works my body long and hard
But on the weekends you know I'm free

Got me a crosstown woman
Got me under her spell
Got me a crosstown woman
She's like my heaven with a whole lot of hell

I have seen the girls of New York City
And the Frisco bay
But there ain't no woman on this earth, make me
feel her voodoo
Quite the same

Got me a crosstown woman
Got me under her spell
Got me a crosstown woman
She's like my heaven with a whole lot of hell

Woo ooh woo ooh
Woo ooh woo ooh woman
Woo ooh woo ooh
Woo ooh crosstown woman

Got me a crosstown woman
Got me under her spell
Got me a crosstown woman
She's like my heaven with a whole lot of hell
She's my Crosstown Woman
7. Shooting Star (3:12)
I've seen your evil ways
And your corrupting mind
Lay the hourglass over
So we don't waste our time
Now throw your burdens out
And throw your heart to me
I don't know what'll come
We'll have to wait and see

Like a shooting star
And you're falling from me
As you fade away
My heart skips a beat

I know you're down on love
But we can love again
So open up
Come on invite me in
Now throw your burdens out
And throw your heart to me
I don't know what'll come
We'll have to wait and see

Like a shooting star
And you're falling from me
As you fade away
My heart skips a beat

I've seen your evil ways
And your corrupting mind
Lay the hourglass over
So we don't waste our time

Like a shooting star
And you're falling from me
As you fade away
My heart skips a beat

I'm a howlin' wolf
You're a shooting star
Yes I am
You're a shooting star
8. Hell And High Water (4:01)
I know your hiding places
and I know your every move
'cause girl, I've been lonely too.
And I seen a million faces
been to a million places.
But, girl, there's no one quite like you.

[Chorus:]
And I'd walk through hell and high water.
Wash away with the tide.
I can lose a damn war all by myself,
if you were on the other side.
So, in the morning when the rooster crows,
pack your bags and get ready to go.
If you're walkin' through hell and high water, please don't do it alone.

I know you feel let down
and I know, you been turned out.
I wish I'd been there for you.
So when the night time comes around.
And you feel like an only child,
just know, I'll be there for you.

[Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]

If you're walkin' through hell and high water, please don't do it alone.
Oh, no...
9. Shapes Of Things (3:05)
Shapes of things before my eyes,
Send me to this place
Will time make men more wise?
Here (yea) within my lonely frame,
my eyes just heard my brain.
Will time make men more sane?

(Come Tomorrow) Will I be older?
(Come Tomorrow) May be a soldier.
(Come Tomorrow) May I be bolder than today?

Fall into your passing hands.
Please don't destroy these lands.
Don't make them desert sands.

(Come Tomorrow) Will I be older?
(Come Tomorrow) May be a soldier.
(Come Tomorrow) May I be bolder than today?

Shapes of things before my eyes,
Send me to this place
Will time make men more wise?

THAT'S THE SHAPE OF THINGS! YEEEAAAA!!!
10. Violator Girl (3:23)
Violator girl she's the queen of the world
She stops traffic with a spin and a twirl
Works all day but she lives for the night
She got a thing for the neon lights

Violator girl
She's the queen of the world
Violator girl
She's gonna rock your world

Too hot to handle and ready to rock
This little hen's got me loaded and cocked
She's daddy's girl but she's mine for tonight
Take a million bucks to keep her satisfied

Violator girl
She's the queen of the world
Violator girl
She's gonna rock your world
11. Tired Of The Rain (3:15)
A gypsy woman told my fortune,
said I'll be rich someday
She said I'll be king and ruler,
in a land of misery and pain

I'm tired of the rain that keeps falling,
falling down on me
Please help me find some shelter,
from the pain that's pouring on me.

I once met a blind man who asked me,
to see things he couldn't see
He spoke of a land called Forever,
where you don't need eyes to see

I'm tired of the rain that keeps falling,
falling down on me
Please help me find some shelter,
from the pain that's pouring on me.

[Organ solo]

Ya know I'll be climbin' this mountain,
but it's too rocky and steep
When i get over this mountain,
ya know I'll be set free

I'm tired of the rain that keeps falling,
falling down on me
Please help me find some shelter,
from the pain that's pouring on me.

I'm tired of the rain that keeps falling,
falling down on me
Please help me find some shelter,
from the pain that's pouring on me.
12. Drive (3:04)
Ain't got no cause not a care in the world
Got my eyes on a hot-rod girl
And I'm gonna show her my sleek mean machine
Built on love fueled by gasoline

Drive
We gonna go for a ride
Just drive
We were born to fly

Take down the top we don't need it anymore
Drive this road with the pedal to the floor
We're gonna go for the ride of our lives
It starts right here but it won't end tonight

Drive
We gonna go for a ride
Just drive
We were born to fly

We been traveling this lonely highway
For way, way too long
Come with me on the lovers freeway
And we'll find the love we need

Drive
We gonna go for a ride
Just drive
We were born to fly
13. Rollin' On (4:59)
Smoke another cigarette
Reminisce on a girl I met
Watch another day pass me bye
A country road that takes me home
The only place that I've ever known
I sure do love that Rocky Mountain sky

Just like the seasons I'm gonna change
Like the clouds I'm rollin' on
Hey, Merle Haggard I know what you mean
When you say sing me back home

Got my wheels stretched out on a road
Them yellow lines that free my soul
Mama always said that I was born to roam
Headed down the highway
Livin' life the free way
Today I'm here but tomorrow I'm gone

Just like the seasons I'm gonna change
Like the clouds I'm rollin' on
Hey, Merle Haggard I know what you mean
When you say sing me back home

I've smoked another cigarette
Reminisced on the girls I've met
Watched another day pass me bye

Just like the seasons I'm gonna change
Like the clouds I'm rollin' on
Hey, Merle Haggard I know what you mean
When you say sing me back home
