Submitted by level Eagles
1. Moving On (2:38)
(Gary Moore)

I'm gonna leave this place tomorrow.
I'm gonna leave this town behind.
I'll be gone before the morning,
on the other side of the mound.

That's why I'm moving on.
I'm moving on.
I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.

Oh, well I'm tired of the same old faces,
and I'm sick of the same old names.
I'm getting bored with the same old places,
everybody starts to look the same.

That's why I'm moving on.
I'm moving on.
I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.

Move it for me!

I've been tryin' to settle down here,
but my feet just won't stay still.
And I've heard that the grass is greener
on the other side of the hill.

That's why I'm moving on.
I'm moving on.
I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.

Give me one more for the go!

I'm gonna leave this town tomorrow.
I'm gonna leave this place behind.
You can bet your bottom dollar,
all my troubles will be far behind.

That's why I'm moving on.
I'm moving on.
I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.

I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.

Said I've been hanging around too long,
it's time I was moving on.
Get out of here!
2. Oh, Pretty Woman (4:24)
(Wiliams)

Oh, pretty woman
sure's the rising sun.
Says all your cheap paint and powder
ain't gonna help you none.

'Cause she's a pretty woman
right down to her bone.
So you might as well
leave your skin alone.

Pretty woman,
what's the matter with you?
Can't make you love me
no matter what I do.

Oh, pretty woman,
whatcha gonna do?
You kept on foolin' around
till I got stuck on you.

So you can drop your mess
and come down off your throne,
stop using my poor heart
as just a stepping stone.

Pretty woman,
what's the matter with you?
Can't make you love me
no matter what I do.

Oh, pretty woman
that's all right for you.
Now you just go on doing
what you wanna do.

But someday when you think
that you've got it made,
you're gettin' water deep enough
so you can't wade.

Pretty woman,
what's the matter with you?
Can't make you love me
no matter what I do.

Oh, pretty woman.
Oh, pretty woman.
Oh, pretty woman.
Oh, pretty woman.
Can't make you love me
no matter what I do. No!

Can't make you love me
no matter what I do. No!
Can't make you love me
no matter what I do.

Oh, pretty woman,
I just can't make you love me.
Oh, no.
3. Walking by Myself (2:55)
(Jimmy Rodgers)

You know I love you.
You know it's true.
Give you all my love, babe.
What more can I do?

Walking by myself,
I hope you'll understand.
I just want to be your lovin' man.

I love ya, yes I love you
with my heart and soul.
I wouldn't mistreat you
for my weight in gold.

You know I love you.
You know it's true.
Give you all my love, babe.
What more can I do?

Walking by myself,
I hope you'll understand.
I just want to be your lovin' man.

Here we go!
Keep on walkin'!

You know I love you.
You know it's true.
I give you all my --, babe.
What more can I do?

I'm walking by myself,
I hope you'll understand.
I just want to be your lovin' man.

I said I'm walking by myself,
I hope you'll understand.
I just want to be your lovin',
I just want to be your lovin',
I just want to be your lovin' man.
That's right.
4. Still Got the Blues (6:08)
(Gary Moore)

Used to be so easy to give my heart away.
But I found out the hard way,
there's a price you have to pay.
I found out that love was no friend of mine.
I should have known time after time.

So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.

Used to be so easy to fall in love again.
But I found out the hard way,
it's a road that leads to pain.
I found that love was more than just a game.
You're playin' to win, but you lose just the same.

So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.

So many years since I've seen your face.
Here in my heart, there's an empty space
where you used to be.

So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.

Though the days come and go,
there is one thing I know.
I've still got the blues for you.
5. Texas Strut (4:50)
(Gary Moore)

One, two, three, four.
Let me tell you about the Texas blues.

I went down south to Dallas,
to hear those cowboys wail.
Came across that Billy Gibbons
ridin' on that ZZ trail.

I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
I said I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
The Texas blues.

Got myself in Double Trouble,
when I saw that Texas Flood.
Stevie said The Sky Is Crying,
superstition's in his blood.

I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
I said I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
The Texas blues.
How-how-how-how.

Come on!

I heard that Houston Twister.
He could run you off the tracks.
When he plays that Cold Cold Feeling,
you get the shivers down your back.

I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
I said I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
The Texas blues.
A-how-how-how-how.

Well, I'm going back to Dallas.
Won't go waitin' for no bus.
Ridin' off into the sunset.
You won't see my heels for dust.

I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
I said I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
I said I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
And I just can't lose with the Texas blues.
The Texas blues.
Texas blues.
A-how-how-how-how.
A-how-how-how-how.
6. Too Tired (2:49)
(Johnny 'Guitar' Watson)

Yeah!
I laid down last night, too tired to wake.
I had a chill this morning, too tired to shake.
I got a good poker hand, too tired to win.
I can hear my baby knockin', too tired to let her in.

I'm tired.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm tired.
Too tired, too tired for anything.

I'm too tired to walk,
too tired to run.
I can hear my baby callin'.
Too tired, too tired,
I'm tired.
Yes, I'm tired.
I'm tired,
I'm too tired for anything.

Take over Albert, I'm too tired for this!

I'm tired of prospherity.
I'm tired of luck.
I'm sittin' on a pin,
I'm too tired to get up.

I'm tired.
I declare I'm tired.
I'm too tired,
too tired for anything.

Oh, Albert I'm tired.
You better take over Albert.
I'm too tired baby.
7. King of the Blues (4:34)
(Gary Moore)

He was born in Mississippi 1924.
He was born in Mississippi 1924.
Left his home with no money.
He had to pay his dues,
but he knew the time was comin'
when he'd be king of the blues.
King of the blues!

Lost his heart to a woman, Lucy was her name.
Lost his heart to a woman, Lucy was her name. Yes, it was.
When he hears her sing so sweetly,
he knows he just can't lose.
When he holds her in his arms he knows that
he's the king of the blues.

He's a Hunter with a Crosscut Saw.
Born Under A Bad Sign.
Caught his baby messin' down the Laundromat.
He Almost Lost his Mind.
Yeah!

He was born in Mississippi 1924.
He was born in Indianola, Mississippi 1924. Yes, he was!
He doesn't need no jester to keep him amused.
He's got Lucy by his side,
he's making headline news.
Doesn't need no palace,
like Freddie down in Dallas.
You can call him what you like,
I call him king of the blues.

That's right, mister Albert King of the blues.
Yeah!
King of the blues.
Let me hear ya!
8. As the Years Go Passing By (7:42)
(Dan Malone)

There is nothing I can do,
as you leave me here to cry.
There is nothing I can do,
as you leave me here to cry.
You know my love will follow you,
as the years go passing by.

Give you all that I own.
That's one thing you can't deny.
Give you all that I own.
That's one thing you can't deny.
You know my love will follow you,
as the years go passing by.

Gonna leave it up to you.
So long, so long, goodbye.
Gonna leave it up to you.
So long, so long, goodbye.
You know my love will follow you,
as the years go passing by.

Gonna leave it up to you.
So long, so long, goodbye.
Gonna leave it up to you.
So long, so long, goodbye.
You know my love will follow you,
as the years go passing by.
9. Midnight Blues (4:57)
(Gary Moore)

It's the darkest hour
of the darkest night.
It's a million miles
from the morning light.

Can't get no sleep.
Don't know what to do.
I've got those midnight blues.

When the shadows fall,
I feel the night closing in.
There must be some reason
for this mood I'm getting in.

Can't get no sleep.
Don't know what to do.
I've got those midnight blues.

Every evening after sundown,
as the light begins to fade.
I feel so low, but I just don't know
why these blues won't go away.

Every evening after sundown,
as the light begins to fade.
I feel so low, but I just don't know
why these blues won't go away.

It's the darkest hour
of the darkest night.
It's a million miles
to the morning light.

Can't get no sleep.
Don't know what to do.
I've got those midnight blues.
I've got those midnight blues.
I've got those midnight blues.
I've got those midnight blues.
10. That Kind of Woman (4:28)
(George Harrison)

She's that kind of woman.
No doubt about how she feels.
She's holding promises.
Her eyes won't tell,
her lips are sealed.

And I like her like that.
She's kind of crazy.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.

Standing in the doorway
with the sunlight in her hair.
She's watching the wind blow.
You know she don't have a care.

I like her like that.
She's kind of crazy.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.

She's got to look so cool, you know what I mean.
Got the wickedest smile that I've ever seen.
I crashed my heart on the side of the street
that she once stood on.
She's that kind of woman.

I like her like that.
She's pretty amazing.
I understand why I want some more.
That kind of woman.
One look from her knocks me on the floor.
That kind of woman.

She's that kind of lady
that you meet in a dream of dreams.
Puts others in her shadow,
but you know this woman's real.

And I like her that.
She's kind of crazy.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.
I think I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.

I said I know what I'm looking for.
That kind of woman.
That kind of woman.
That kind of woman.
11. All Your Love (3:39)
(Otis Rush)

All your lovin' is lovin'.
All your kissin' is kissin'.
All your lovin' is lovin'.
All your kissin' is kissin'.
Before I met you baby,
I never knew what I was missin'.

All your lovin' pretty baby,
that I got in store for you.
All your lovin' pretty baby,
that I got in store for you.
When I say I love you baby,
gotta say you love me too.

All your lovin' pretty baby,
that I got in store for you.
All your lovin' pretty baby,
that I got in store for you.
When I say I love you baby,
you gotta say you love me too.

All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
Before I met you baby,
I never knew what I was missin'.

All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
All your lovin' pretty baby.
Before I met you baby,
I never knew what I was missin'.
12. Stop Messing Around (3:52)
(Peter Green)

Oh, baby please stop messin' around.
You're messin' around with my heart.
Baby please stop messin' around.
You're messin' around with my heart.
And if you don't stop messin' baby,
pretty soon we're gonna have to part.

Oh, baby please stop messin' around.
You're messin' around all the time.
Baby please stop messin' around.
You're messin' around all the time.
And if you don't stop messin' baby,
you're gonna be someone elses baby, not mine.

Squeeze me baby till my face turn cherry red.
Roll me so hard, I'll fall right out of bed.
Please stop messin' around.
You're messin around all the time.
If you don't stop messin' baby,
you're gonna be someone elses baby, not mine.

Squeeze me baby till my face turn cherry red.
Roll me so hard, I'm gonna fall right out of bed.
Please stop messin' around.
You're messin around all the time.
If you don't stop messin' baby,
you're gonna be someone elses baby, not mine.
Yeah!
