Power of the Blues Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-02-20)
1. Power of the Blues (2:30)
Did you ever get the feeling
That everything is going wrong
Did you ever get the feeling
Our good times have gone

Don't try to fight it
You know it's no use
No way you can beat it
Your messin' with the power of the blues

Did you ever get the feeling
That nothings going away
Did you ever get the feeling
That it just ain't your day

Ain't no use to fight it
Your just gonna amuse it
You know you can beat it
Your messin' with the power of the blues
Power of the blues

You can't run and you just can't hide
The blues has got you
Well your down inside
Have you heard the news
Your taken by the power of the blues

Did you ever get the feeling
That everything is going wrong
Did you ever get the feeling
Our good times have gone

Don't try to fight it
You know it's no use
No way you can beat it
Your messin' with the power of the blues
Your messin' with the power of the blues
Power Of The Blues
2. There's a Hole (5:38)
What is it that you want
What is it that you need
Are you gonna take everything
Do you wanna see me bleed
What is it that you're looking for
Do you always have to take some more
'Till there's nothing left to feel
Nothing left of you and me

There's a hole where we used to be
Everything's so empty now
Without you and me
There's a time that we never had
Everything's so empty now
And it feels so sad

Why is it that you never see
What are you trying to do to me
Or is it that you just don't care
That I'm in misery
We gotta set the record straight
Before it starts to get to late
I'm begging on my bended knees
Won't you hear me please

There's a hole where we used to be
Everything's so empty now
Without you and me
There's a time that we never had
Everything's so empty now
And it feels so sad

Does it really have to be this way
Do you ever hear a word I say

There's a hole where we used to be
Everything's so empty now
Without you and me

There's a time that we never had
Everything's so empty now
And it feels so
And it feels so sad

There's a hole, there's a hole, there's a hole
Where we used to
Where we used to
Where we used to be
3. Tell Me Woman (2:53)
Tell me woman how do you see a man like me?
Tell me woman how do you see a man like me?
Well, do I keep you satisfied or do I need to set you free?

Tell me woman how do I figure in your life?
Tell me woman how do I figure in your life?
Well, are you gonna stick around or will you cut me like a knife?

From the early, early mornin' to the middle of the night
Will you try to tell me woman if I'm doin' you alright?
Tell me woman how do you see a man like me?
Well, do I keep you satisfied or do I need to set you free?
Come on

From the early, early mornin' to the middle of the night
Will you try to tell me woman if I'm doin' you alright?
Tell me woman how do you see a man like me?
Mm-hm
Well, do I keep you satisfied or do I need to set you free?
Yeah
4. I Can't Quit You Baby (5:48)
I can't quit you, baby
But I've got to put you down for awhile
You know I can't quit you, baby
But I've got to put you down for awhile
Well, you messed up my happy home, babe
Made me mistreat my only child

You know I love you, baby
My love for you I could never hide
Yes, you know I love you, baby
My love for you I would never hide
Yes, you know you're the onliest one, darlin'
You're just my heart's desire

Well, I'm so tired I could cry
I could just lay down and die
I'm so tired I could cry
I could just lay down and die
You know I love you, baby
You're just my heart's desire

When you hear me moanin' and groanin', baby
You know it hurts me way down inside
When you hear me moanin' and groanin', baby
You know it hurts me way down inside
Yes, when you hear me holler, baby
You know you're my heart's desire
5. That's Why I Play the Blues (4:05)
Some people say
Why do you play the blues?
Some even ask me
If I paid my dues.
Tell them it's somethin'
To get me through
Everytime that I think of you.
That's why,
That's why I play the blues.
Some people wanna know
If the blues is here to stay.
Tell them I don't know,
But that it's with me every day.
Stops me from fallin'
Down to the ground
Everytime you're not around.
That's why,
That's why I play the blues.

I don't know if it's wrong or right,
But the blues is with me day and night.
Just don't ask me about the way I feel,
All I know is that the blues is real.

Tell them it's somethin'
To get me through
Everytime that I'm thinking of you.
That's why,
That's why I play the blues.

That's why I play the blues.
That's why I play the blues.
That's why,
That's why I play the blues.
6. Evil (2:42)
It's a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Call on your telephone;
Something just ain't right.
That's evil, evil is going on wrong.
I want to warn you brother,
You better watch your happy home.

You make it to your house,
Knock on the front door,
Run 'round to the back;
You'll catch him just before he goes.
That's evil, evil is going on.
I have warned you brother,
You better watch your happy home.

If you call on the telephone
And she answers long and slow,
Grab the first thing smoking
And you have to haul her home.
That's evil, evil is going on wrong.
I have warned you brother,
You better watch your happy home.
7. Getaway Blues (3:42)
If I feel this way tomorrow,
Gonna make my getaway

If I feel this way tomorrow,
Gonna have to make my getaway

Too much worries and troubles,
I just cant face another day

A lot of wicked night,
Worries and troubles all over my mind

A lot of wicked night,
Worries and troubles all over my mind

If I dont find some way outta here,
Im gonna have to leave this place behind

If I feel this way tomorrow,
Gonna make my getaway

Feel this way tomorrow,
Im gonna have to make my getaway

Too much worries and troubles,
I just cant face another day

Getaway yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
8. Memory Pain (4:52)
It serves me right to suffer
It serves me right to be alone
It serves me right to suffer
It serves me right to be alone

You see I'm living in the memory
Of a day that has passed and gone

Everytime i see a woman
You know it makes me think about mine
Everytime i see a woman
You know it makes me think about mine

You see I'm living in the memory
Of a woman I've left behind

It serves me right to suffer
It serves me right to be alone
It serves me right to suffer
It serves me right to be alone

Now I'm living in the memory
Of a woman that has passed and gone
9. Can't Find My Baby (3:34)
Yeah!

I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone, mm-hm
Well, I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone
When I can't find my baby
I know there's somethin' wrong

Well, she walked out one morning
Said she won't be late
Walked out one morning
Said she won't be late, that's right
Now I can't find my baby
All I can do is wait

She won't write, she won't phone
She'll leave me sittin' all alone
Said, I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone
When I can't find my baby
I know there's somethin' wrong
Yeah

She won't write, she won't phone
She'll leave me sittin' all alone
Well, I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone
When I can't find my baby
I know there's somethin' wrong

Well, I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone, yeah
Said, I'm sittin' here wondering
Where my baby's gone
When I can't find my baby

10. Torn Inside (5:37)
Have you sit and wonder, what in the world went wrong?
Have you sit and wonder, wonder why it all went wrong?
When you try to find a reason, why oh blues has it gone?

Now every man feel misery, sometimes they wish they had never Born
Every man feel misery, You know sometimes they wish they'd Never born
Specially when their hearts been broken, and their love inside is Torn

Solo

Did you ever sit and wonder, wonder where it all went wrong?
Did you ever sit and wonder people, wonder where it all went Wrong?
Can you ask yourself this question, where have all the good times Gone?
