1. Shake My Tree (4:50)
Now i don't want to be your slave,
You're trying to drive me to an early grave
All i ever hear, is that you live an' breathe for me
But, all you ever do, babe, is shake my tree

'cos you keep on pushing, baby,
Like you never, ever been in love before.

I told you once an' i told you twice,
I ain't no schoolboy you can sacrifice
You want my love an' you want it now,
You try to love me, baby, but you don't know how

So you keep on pushing, baby,
Like you never, ever been in love before

I need love an' i need time,
An' a little bit of both, if you wanna be a friend of mine
I don't want no woman, drive me outta my head
An' you're the kind of girl, guaranteed to wreck my bed

Love is what you need,
But, you cut down to the bone an' make me bleed
I give you everything an' still you cry
Ooh, mama, the price of loving you is way too high

But, you keep on talking, baby, i've heard it all before
Now i don't want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

But, you keep on pushing, mama,
Like you never, ever been in love before

I know love an' i know shame
An' i ain't gonna get caught up in your game
It took a little time to make me see,
I ain't lookin' for a woman like you to shake my tree

So keep on talking, baby, keep on hangin' around
Everything you do to me, is sure to drag me down

An' you keep on pushing, mama,
Like you never, ever been in love before

Shake my tree

I don't want to be your slave,
You're trying to drive me to an early grave
You keep on talking, no matter what you say
I've had enough of your kind of love, to last me all my days

So keep on pushing baby, i've heard it all before
I don't want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

Now i don't want your loving, baby, i can't take it anymore,
I don't want you hanging around, kicking at my door
If i see your face again, i'll give you what's in store
But, you'll keep on pushing, baby,
'cos you've never, ever been in love before
2. Waiting on You (5:15)
My heart is breaking, my whole life is shaking.
Every way i turn, i know this love is gonna burn me
But, i'm waiting on you, no matter what you do

Ever since you went away, i suffer each an' every day
An' i can't hide the heartache anymore,
You left me all alone, just waiting by the telephone,
Too scared to step outside this prison door

An' i'm waiting on you

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
This heart is dedicated to you
'til the rivers run dry and the sun no longer shines,
I'm still gonna make you mine
I'm waiting on you, waiting on you

Ever since i started drinking, my ship's been slowly sinking,
So tell me what's a man supposed to do
When people stop and stare and see me drowning in despair,
'cos it's written on my face, what i've been going through

An' i'm waiting on you

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
This heart is dedicated to you
'til the rivers run dry and the sun no longer shines,
I'm still gonna make you mine

I'm waiting on you, waiting on you
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


I'm waiting on you, waiting on you

My heart is breaking, my whole life is shaking
Every way i turn, i know this love is gonna burn,
Love is gonna burn, love is gonna burn
Burn me, baby, burn, your love is gonna burn

Ever since you went away, i've suffered each an' every day
An' i can't hide the loneliness no more
All the tears i've cried, all the love i've been denied
An' still you find me waiting on you, baby, baby, babe

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
This heart is dedicated to you.
'til the rivers run dry and the sun no longer shines,
I'll be waiting on you, waiting on you.
My heart is dedicated to you,

An' i'm waiting on you, waiting on you.

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
This heart is dedicated to you.
'til the rivers run dry,
I'll be waiting on you, waiting on you.
My heart is dedicated to you,

An' i'm waiting on you, waiting on you.

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
My heart is dedicated to you.
'til the rivers run dry,
I'll be waiting on you, babe.
3. Take Me for a Little While (6:17)
Now my days are growing cold,
All the memories unfold
Thinking 'bout the friends we lost,
Wondering how to count the cost,
Now my days are growing cold

I can hardly wait any longer,
Now the feeling's growing stronger
Thinking 'bout the times we had,
Good times always turn into bad,
Now my days are growing cold

Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make me smile
Why don't you take me for a little while

As i watch the rising sun,
I see a new day just begun
Thinking 'bout the sacrifice,
Wondering how to pay the price,
Now my world is growing cold

Why don't you take me for a little while,
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


Sing me songs, you know, will make me smile, make me smile
Why don't you take me for a little while

So now my days are growing cold,
All my memories been told
Thinking 'bout the dreams we lost,
Wondering how to count the cost
Now my days are growing cold

Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make me smile
Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make, me make, me make, me smile

Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make me smile.
Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make, me make, me make, me smile.

Make me smile...

Why don't you take me for a little while,
Sing me songs, you know, will make me, make me, make me smile.
Somebody take me, take me, won't you make me smile...
4. Pride and Joy (3:32)
Take me to your river, baby, take me to your sea
Purify my soul an' pour your ocean over me.
Lead me to your chamber, where you sleep at night,
Scratch your name across my back, make me feel alright.

You're the best time i have ever had,
You look so good, oh babe, you must be bad.

Diamonds on your ankles, sapphires on your shoes,
Your little gems of wisdom chase away my blues.
Mama's little princess, daddy's pride and joy,
I'm like a kid at christmas, playing with your toys.

You shake me in the morning, i wake up black an' blue
Ooh child, you act so wild, i'll name a hurricane after you
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


Scarlet fever kisses, little miss dynamite,
Youngblood, you look so good, i'm gonna leave on all the lights

So i can see where i'm goin', baby
Play that thing!

So take me to your river, baby, take me to your sea,
Purify my soul an' pour your ocean over me.
Lead me to your chamber, where you sleep at night,
Scratch your name across my back, make me feel alright.

I have never felt this good before,
If you want i'll sleep outside your door.
You're the best time i have ever had,
You look so good, oh babe, you must be bad.

You must be bad...
5. Over Now (5:22)
You said you'd give me love,
Instead you caused me pain
You made me curse an' slam the door,
An' hang my head in shame
But, it's over now, it's over now

You talked to me of virtue,
An' sang a song so sweet
But, all i know is i could smell the perfume of deceit
An' it's over now, it's over now

You told me of your innocence,
An' i believed it all
But, your best friend is your vanity,
An' the mirror on the wall
It's over now...

I turned away from what i heard,
An' everything i saw
But, now i see the light of day,
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do when the truth pays you a call,
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


How you gonna feel, when you finally lose it all,
How you gonna look, standing up against the wall,
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, when you feel the hammer fall,
I'm gonna see you crawl

You took your pills an' washed them down,
An' then you talked for hours
I tried to build a garden,
But, you trampled all the flowers
An' it's over now

Wanting this, needing that,
Always after more
Now that it's all over,
I release the dog of war,
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do when the truth pays you a call,
How you gonna look, standing up against the wall,
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say,
When you feel the hammer fall

Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, standing up against the wall,
So whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, mamma, when you feel the hammer fall,
So whatcha gonna do?
6. Feeling Hot (4:10)
Hey, gypsy woman, roll your dice for me,
Read my tarot cards, so i can see.
I'm razor sharp, cool sunglasses,
Pocketful of backstage passes.
Lady luck, roll your dice for me.

The boys are feeling hot, tonight,
Fingers crossed, they get it right.
Women to the left, women to the right,
The boys are feeling hot tonight.

I ain't too proud to beg for what you got,
You'd melt a heart of ice, babe, you're so hot.
So pump it up, raise the dead,
Squeeze it, honey, 'til it's cherry red
I ain't too proud to beg for what you got.

The boys are feeling hot, tonight,
Fingers crossed, they get it right.
Women to the left, women to the right,
The boys are feeling hot tonight.
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif



Feeling hot, feeling hot, feeling hot, feeling hot, hot, hot, hot.

Feeling hot...

Now i just wanna make sweet love to you,
I'll do anything you want me to.
So rip it up, slip an' slide,
'scuse me if my tongue gets tired
An' i will make some sweet love to you.

The boys are feeling hot, tonight,
Fingers crossed, they get it right.
Women to the left, women to the right,
The boys are feeling hot tonight, hey, hey, hey.

Look out baby!

The boys are feeling hot tonight,
The boys are feeling hot tonight,
The boys are feeling hot tonight.

Rip it up, baby...
7. Easy Does It (5:51)
You said you needed love to warm you in the night,
So you gave yourself to strangers,
Who left you crying at first light.

You think the world you live in doesn't notice you
But, don't you worry, baby,
I'll be there to comfort you.

So take it easy, easy,
Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
I'll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

So weep no more, my lady, don't you cry,
I can't paint your portrait with those tears in your eye.

But, i can give you love, every night and day
An' we will walk together,
The sun and moon will light our way.

So take it easy, easy,
Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
I'll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

I'll tell you something you'll understand,
Grab a hold now, baby,
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


And i'll lead you to the promised land.

I'll make you feel so good, make you feel alright
Chase away the shadows and keep you warm at night,
Ooh, i'll keep you warm.

Take it easy, easy,
Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
I'll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

Gonna keep you smiling and satisfied,
Nothing but blue skies on a magic carpet ride.

Take it easy, easy,
Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
I'll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

Anywhere the four winds blow, i'll take you there.

Here we go, baby, hold on.

No more worry, no more pain,
The sun is always shining,
And it never, ever rains,
And it never, ever rains,
And it never, ever rains...
8. Take a Look at Yourself (5:02)
The first thing in the morning, the last thing at night,
I just wanna hold you, babe, and make you feel alright.
When the sun is shining, or the sky is filled with rain,
Wherever we may be, i'm gonna make love with you again.

Now i don't need a crystal ball to tell me it's true,
'cos i've crossed too many rivers on my way to finding you.
Your smile, like a summer sun, can brighten my day
And when i'm feeling down, you chase the dark clouds away.

There ain't no doubt about it, baby,
I'm gonna shout about it.

Take a look at yourself,
Can't you see why i want you and nobody else.
'cos the first thing in the morning,
The last thing at night.
I just wanna hold you, babe,
An' make you feel alright.

Sometimes i feel it in my bones, when the cold northwinds blow
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


But, when you put your arms around me, i can feel it no more.
I've been guilty of a thousand crimes in matters of the heart
But, just the thought of losing you, tears me apart.

There ain't no doubt about it, baby,
I'm gonna shout about it.

Take a look at yourself,
Can't you see why i want you and nobody else.
'cos the first thing in the morning,
The last thing at night.
I just wanna hold you, babe,
An' make you feel alright.

There ain't no doubt about it, babe,
I'm gonna shout about it.

Take a look at yourself,
Can't you see why i want you and nobody else.
'cos the first thing in the morning,
The last thing at night.
I just wanna hold you, babe,
An' make you feel alright...
9. Don't Leave Me This Way (7:52)
I'm sick and tired and lonely, sitting in my room
Staring at the shadows, blowing smoke rings at the moon.
Every night i try, but, every night i cry, tryin' to work out why
I just wanna know, got to know, why you keep on pushing me, baby.

You love me when you want, and take me when you need
Whatever you say to me, baby, makes my poor heart bleed.
Now i don't wanna win, but, i don't wanna lose
An' i don't wanna be alone no more, no more
I just wanna give you love, i just got to give you love.

But, you keep on giving love,
You give another man your love.
Ooh baby, don't you leave me this way,
Don't you leave me.

I never wanna hurt you, don't wanna tie you down
But, every time i take a look in the mirror,
I can see the heartache hangin' 'round.
I'm going down to the ground,
Why you always wanna bring me down
Baby, baby, why do you always bring me down.

image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


'cos you keep on giving love,
You give another man your love.
Baby, baby, don't you leave me this way.
Don't you leave me, baby, baby, baby.
My heart is aching, my heart is breaking for you
And i can't take it anymore, no more, no more.

I'm sick and tired and lonely, nothing left to say
Just thinking 'bout you, baby, takes all my night and day
All my nights, all my days,
Baby, babe, you take my breath away.

'cos you keep on giving love,
You give another man your love.
Baby, baby, baby, don't you leave me this way.

I can't stop my love from falling down
I wanna love you in the morning,
Wanna love you in the evening time.
Don't you leave me, baby,
Don't you ever leave me, baby.
Don't you leave me, baby, no.

Don't you leave me, baby.
10. Absolution Blues (6:00)
Bless me, father, i have sinned, i've broken hearts, got drunk on gin
An' still i lust for sweet young things.
On the day that i was born, bells rang out in babylon
Still i can't tell right from wrong, no matter what the good book says.

Now i can see the sun is shining,
But, i can feel the rain
Falling down to wash my tears away,
Wash my tears away.

Holy mother, save your tears, you've cried for me a thousand years
But, i was blind to all your fears.
Now i can't stop the tears from falling down.
Come the dawn of judgement day,
I'll get down on my knees and pray,
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


St. peter don't you, don't you send me away.

Now i can see the sun is shining,
But, i can feel the rain
Falling down to wash my tears away.

Bless me, father, i have sinned, i've broken hearts, got drunk on gin
An' still i lust for everything, every little thing
Come the dawn of judgement day, i'll get down on my knees and pray,
The good lord don't send me away, i'll never ever go.

Now i can see the sun is shining,
But, i can feel the rain
Falling down to wash my tears away.

Wash my tears away, i'll get down on my knees
Don't send me away, don't you send me away, no, no, no.
11. Whisper a Prayer for the Dying (6:54)
I hear the sound of distant thunder, echo all around,
I see the tragedy of young ones lying on the ground,
I see the fathers' sons and daughters, i hear the mothers crying,
Nothing left for me to do, but, whisper a prayer for the dying.

Oh, a prayer for the dying.

The suffocating heat of jungles, and burning desert sands,
Where everything reminds you, you're a stranger in a strange land.
The soothing words of politicians, those bodyguards of lies,
While guardian angels waste their time and every mother cries.

Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying, dying.

Machine gun, battle cry, you pray to god when the bullets fly,
The bombs fall like black rain, an' all your dreams take you home again,
Nothing but bad dreams.

You can't read, you can't write,
You're so scared, you can't sleep at night
image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif


You try to carry the heavy load,
Walking down armageddon road.

Oh, armageddon road.

I hear the sound of distant thunder, echo all around,
I see the tragedy of young ones lying on the ground,
I see the fathers' sons and daughters, i hear the mothers crying,
Nothing left for me to do, but, whisper a prayer for the dying.

Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying.
Oh, a prayer for the dying, baby, baby.
Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying,
Whisper a prayer for the dying.

You can't run, you can't hide,
You can't show what you feel inside.
You're going crazy, going insane,
You know you'll never be the same again, no, no.

Whisper a prayer for the dying, dying, dying, dying, dying, no, no.
Armageddon road, armageddon road, i'm walking down armageddon road.
