1. Move It (5:35)
Sweet little sister, this scene's sure getting old
Don't you think it's time we've got to go?
I got so twisted trying to make it right
Don't you know we've wasted half the night?

I was told to use my head
Be heard and never seen
It's just your daddy's double talk
Baby, and it don't mean no thing to me

Let's move it, time to say so long
Let's move it, let's get this mother on

Hey, little sister, in your high heeled shoes
Don't you know it's time to learn the blues?
Sweet little sister, time to get it on
Don't you know the meaning to this song?

I recall what daddy said
Stay where you belong
That's just another lie into nowhere
Let's get this baby on

Let's move it, time to say so long
Let's move it, let's get this mother on
Let's move it, time to say so long
Let's move it, let's get this mother on

Let's move it
Let's move it
Let's move it
Just like that

I's just that double talk
Don't mean no thing to me
it's time to shake it loose
Shake it from the family tree

Let's move it, time to say so long
Let's move it, let's get this mother on
Let's move it, time to say so long
Let's move it, let's get this mother on
Just move it
2. Heart the Hunter (4:50)
I had a woman, gave her all of my loving
Gave her all that I had
The kind of woman, she could make you believe her
Nothing's going to go bad

Took a while and all of the hurting
Since she left and went away
Behind her smile though I can't be certain
I thought I heard her say

My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game
My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game

Little baby, I won't give you no heartaches
I won't give you no pain
Sweet little darling, can't you see what is coming
Oh 'cause you know me by name

Used to be when I was a child
I thought loving should be free
And it's so hard to be reconciled
That ain't the way it ought to be

My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game, my heart's a hunter
My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game

It's only loving when she's gone and she's left you
It goes to show
It's always something that I felt when I met you
It comes and it goes

I ride alone tonight, so bittersweet
I took a chance, I tried to love her
Someone whispered her name, heartbreaker

My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game. a lonely hunter
My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game

My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game, my heart's a hunter
My heart's a hunter
And love is a loser's game
3. Hiway Nights (6:00)
I know the spell you're under
I know it so well
How far well you may wonder
No way to tell

I've travelled miles from nowhere
Where suns never rise
Looking to find a meaning
Now open your eyes

I've been this way so long
Tomorrow's gone

See if the rhyme has reason
Chasing the wind
Look for a change of season
Somewhere to begin

The freeway is my song

Highway nights, red tail lights, lead my love light on
Highway nights, freeway sights, to this eagle I belong, it rolls me on

So how can I bring you loving
Out of the night?
Is it a dream
To fade in the light?
The freeway is my song

Highway nights, red tail lights, to this eagle I belong
Highway nights, freeway sights, lead my love light on
Highway nights, red tail lights, lead my love light on
Highway nights, freeway sights, to this eagle I belong, it rolls me on

Baby, won't you start your motor?
Baby, won't you turn it over?
Baby, won't you drive me, drive me through the night?

Highway nights, red tail lights, to this eagle I belong
Highway nights, freeway sights, lead my love light on
Highway nights, red tail lights, lead my love light on
Highway nights, freeway sights, to this eagle I belong, it rolls me on
4. The Angel Song (4:51)
Fallen angel, ripped and bruised
Think on better days
Life is rude, treats you bad
Tears your wings away

Raise your eyes, to star and sky
Believe in fly aways
Take your dreams, your broken schemes
And sweep the past away

Fly, lonely angel
High above these streets of fire
fly, lonely angel
Far away from mad desire

Hollywood ain't paved with gold
It's just a trick of light
Sunset falls on stars of old
And blinds you with its light

A spider's web of tangled lives
Lays stretched across the hills
From distances it's glistening
Like El Dorado's halls

Fly, lonely angel
High above these streets of fire
Fly, lonely angel
Leave behind the mad desire

The dream was light, and fragrant nights
But how were you to know?
The streets are hard, they're mean and scarred
Where only fools find gold

Fly, lonely angel
High above these streets of fire
Fly, lonely angel
Leave behind the mad desire

Fly, lonely angel
Spread your wings another way
Fly, lonely angel
Find a better way a better day
5. Mista Bone (5:10)
That girl is just a cool good looker
That baby's sweeter than raw brown sugar
Never mind 'cause the fancy took her
She says she wants to have the small head rock her

What a smile, don't it drive you insane, my baby
Drive a mile, just to ride back again, baby, won't you rock it tonight?

And when she's in the mood
When she needs that loving groove
When she wants it rude
She grooves with mista bone
If she's in the mood
If she hits that loving groove
When she's getting rude
She grooves with mista bone

Just take it like a sweet injection
Just a token of my affection
Another night we'll take another direction
I'm going to play you like a rhythm section

What style, let me see that again, my baby
Drive a mile, just to ride you again, baby, won't you rock it tonight?

And when she's in the groove
When she needs that loving mood
When she wants it rude
She grooves with mista bone
When she's in the mood
When she hits that loving groove
When she's getting rude
She grooves with mista bone

When she's in the mood
When she needs that loving groove
When she wants it rude
She grooves with mista bone
When she's in the mood
When she hits that loving groove
When she's getting rude
She grooves with mista bone
6. Baby's on Fire (6:11)
Learnt me to rock and I learnt me to roll
You got to use it, baby, to keep your soul
Go down to town get some reaction
Got to go down 'cause I need a distraction

I've been trying it on with everyone in sight
He's been waiting so long for me to come tonight

Baby's on fire and I'm burning up
Sparks been flying, she can't get enough
Can't get enough but she's got what it takes
Baby's on fire and I got the shakes

There ain't no cure and there ain't no time
You got to have it and have it fine
Don't say a word about her affections
I'm going to come from another direction

She's been trying it on with everyone in sight
I've been waiting so long for me to come tonight

Baby's on fire and I'm burning up
Sparks been flying, I can't get enough
Can't get enough but she's got what it takes
Baby's on fire and I got the shakes

Baby's on fire and I'm burning up
Sparks been flying I can't get enough
Can't get enough but she's got what it takes
Baby's on fire and she's got the shakes

Can't get enough sweet sweet love
I'm coming around so get your tail up and ready for a heartbreaker

Baby's on fire and I'm burning up
Sparks been flying I can't get enough
Can't get enough but she's got what it takes
Baby's on fire and I got the shakes

Baby's on fire and I'm burning up
Sparks been flying I can't get enough
Can't get enough but she's got what it takes
Baby's on fire and she's got the shakes

Baby, baby, baby's on fire
She can't get no higher
Baby, baby, baby's on fire
She's burning like fire

I think I got me a heat rash
7. House of Broken Love (5:58)
Come the morning don't you wake me
I'll be dreaming that I'm free
Come the daybreak don't you shake me
Send me back to misery

'Cause I'm dealing with the devil
With no help from above
I'm stealing with the devil
Through this house of broken love

Taking chances with you, baby
I saw something in your eyes
And though no one else could blame me
There were signs I should have recognised

Now I'm dealing with the devil
With no help from above
I'm sleeping with the devil
In this house of broken love, broken love

If you don't want to lose my loving
Use it constantly
If it's going to be lies
Suspicious eyes
Then, baby, oh baby, set me free

When the night falls and she's leaving
The moon shines so cold and grey
Hear my heartbeat yeah yeah hear me weeping
Pain and sorrow's here to stay

Now I begged you, baby, help me
But you turned your back on me
You didn't even listen
When you should have set me free

Now I'm leaving with the devil
Going to leave this search for love
I'm leaving with the devil
Leave this house of broken love, broken love
8. She Only (5:23)
So many years to go by
So many tears can fill your eyes
So many fears to lock behind a door
So you drift away
And yet another day
Day goes by empty as before

I'll be there come the morning light
Waiting there, I'll wait for you

She only needs someone
She only needs some time
she only needs someone
To stay this time
She's waiting for love to come
She waits there on her own
she's waiting for someone
To get it right this time

So many days drift by
There's too many ways slowly die
How many shadows fade across the wall?
Baby, soon the day will come
You may find someone
Only now lonely evermore

She's still there come the morning light
She's waiting there, she waits for you

She only needs someone
She only needs some time
she only needs someone
To stay this time
She's waiting for love to come
She waits there on her own
she's waiting for someone
To get it right this time
9. Once Bitten Twice Shy (5:22)
Well the times are getting hard for you, little girl
I'm a humming and a strumming all over god's world
You can't remember when you got your last meal
And you don't know just how a woman feels

You didn't know what rock and roll was
Until you met my drummer on a grey tour bus
I got there in the nick of time
Before he got his hands across your state line

Now it's the middle of the night on the open road
And the heater don't work and it's oh so cold
You're looking tired, you're looking kind of beat
The rhythm of the street sure knocks you off your feet

You didn't know how rock and roll looked
Until you caught your sister with the guys from the group
Half way home in the parking lot
By the look in her eye she was giving what she got

My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby

Woman you're a mess going to die in your sleep
There's blood on my amp and my Les Paul's beat
Can't keep you home, you're messing around
My best friend told me you're the best lick in town

You didn't know that rock and roll burned
So you bought a candle and you lived and you learned
You got the rhythm you got the speed
Mama's little baby likes it short and sweet

My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby

I didn't know you had a rock and roll record
Until i saw your picture on another guy's jacket
You told me I was the only one
But look at you now, it's dark and you're gone

My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby
My, my, my, I'm once bitten, twice shy, baby

So shy, so shy, so shy, so shy
So shy, so shy, so shy, so shy
