Lyrics are as heard so if you see a ? it's because I'm unsure of the word(s)
most of the song lyrics have been confirmed by Sonny and I'm working on getting them all correct


Frisco Bay

clear cross the country rollin' on the big highway
clear cross the country rollin' on the big highway
so long to louisiana, hello frisco bay

well the sun down south, sure got her hold into me
yeah the sun down south, sure got her hold into me
and I'll be feelin' much better, under the shade of a redwood tree

indian summer, got a cold fog rollin' off the bay
indian summer, got a cold fog rollin' off the bay
coon ass in a jacket, strollin' around china town today

well I've had my fun but I guess I best be movin' on
yeah I've had my fun and I guess I best be movin' on
oh interstate 10, take us all the way back home
take home

The Center

father heard the cries of all his kin
"please" they begged him, "tell us once again"
about the fire that burns in every man

look into the eyes upon the land
see the flame that kindles all it can
feel its passion breathe in every man

find the center
find the center
the center of light and truth in every man

up against the wall we'll surely stand
see the rock of ages turn to sand
by the fire that burns in every man

find the center
find the center
the center of light and truth in every man

hunger gives a strength to begging hands
thirst will drive a beast to greener lands
like the fire that burns in every man

find the center
find the center
the center of light and truth in every man

One Life

hear they call me, crazy fool
for throwin' in with the, likes of you
well

I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
you said, you do what you want to
got only one life babe

_______?, ? for takin' in all your pack of lies (uncertain of this verse)
well
I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
you said, you do what you want to
got only one life babe

two good eyes, should have seen
only a fool, don't wanna even believe
I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
I read your letter, I read your letter this morning
you said, you do what you want to
got only one life babe

Names

I seen her at the front door
I couldn't stand it anymore
the band was playing so loud
you couldn't talk you had to shout
so when I asked her for a dance
she thought I said a romance

hey, baby
hey, baby
hey, baby
hey, baby
hey baby, come on darlin' don't ya call me names

well I could see without a doubt
I better sit this one out
walkin' off the dance floor
slipped on a loose board
I bumped a girl and had to hug
she thought I tried to jitterbug

hey baby (repeat)

come on darlin'

I woke up on the front lawn
I found myself home at dawn
I wasn't feelin' any pain
when I dropped my key chain
fell against the window screen
I heard my old lady scream

hey baby (repeat)

Blues Attack

you know you got trouble when you call on the phone
a stranger tell you that your baby ain't home
oh boy about to get a blues attack
baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back

you know you got trouble when you knock on the door
another one slams at the back of the porch
oh boy about to get a blues attack
baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back

you know you got trouble when you walk in the hall
you see your poor picture faced against the wall
oh boy about to get a blues attack
baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back

you know you got trouble when the man bring the mail
the dog don't bark he just wags his tail
oh boy about to get a blues attack
baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back

you know you got trouble when you go down town
all the guys at the bar want to buy you a round
oh boy about to get a blues attack
baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back

yeah baby's on the sly, sneaking behind your back
oh boy about to get a blues attack

Speak of the Devil

you say your man
is the jealous kind
he knocked you down
and blacked your eye
he slept the day
and he drank the night
lookin' for trouble
to start a fight

speak of the devil, here he comes after you
I don't even believe in evil
but see that all hell's gonna break loose

you say your man
he leaves you cryin'
he spends your money
and he steals you blind
he turns away
all your friends
then throws you out
when you pay the rent

speak of the devil, here he comes after you
I don't even believe in evil
but see that all hell's gonna break loose

speak of the devil
you say your man
he treats you mean
Texas temper
and bad scenes
he got a head
as hard as stone
and thinks you're cheatin'
if you ain't alone

speak of the devil, here he comes after you
I don't even believe in evil
but see that all hell's gonna break loose

Key to the Highway
C. Segar / W. Broonzy

I got the key, yes to the highway
billed out and bound to go
I will leave here a runnin' babe,
cause walkin' is much too slow

I'm goin' back, yes to the delta
where I am better known
where they don't take a good man
so far away from home

so give me one, more kiss baby
yes and then I will go
when I leave this highway
wont be back no more

I see the sun, behind the mountain
moon way up in the sky
well I'll roam this highway baby
until the day I die

so long, goodbye baby
baby, baby, baby goodbye
I will roam this highway darlin'
until the day I die

cause I got the key, yes to the highway
billed out and bound, billed out and bound to go
when I leave this town darlin' now
won't be back no more

At Some Time

the sky is falling, the rain is pouring down
the sky is falling, the rain is pouring down
but it's bound to come pouring down
at some time in our life

the wind is howling, it can blow a man away
the wind is howling, it can blow a man away
but it's bound to come blowing round
at some time in our life

the ground is trembling, I'm shaking where I stand
the ground is trembling, I'm shaking where I stand
but we're bound to stumble down
at some time in our life

the world is turning, my head is spinning round
well this old world is turning, my head is spinning round
but we're bound to go spinning round
at some time in our life

Baby Please Don't Go
M. Morganfield

baby please don't go, baby please don't go
baby please don't go down to new orleans
you know I love ya so

you know your man is gone, you know your man is gone
you know your man is gone down to Parchman farm
he got his shackles on

take me way down there, take me way down there
take me way down there, down to new orleans
baby please don't go

take me way down there, take me way down there
take me way down there, down to new orleans
baby please don't go

you know your man is gone, you know your man is gone
you know your man is gone down to Parchman farm
he got his shackles on

baby please don't go, baby please don't go
baby please don't go down to new orleans
you know I love you so

I'm Ready
W. Dixon

I am ready, ready as anybody can be
I am ready, ready as anybody can be
well I'm ready for you, I hope you're ready for me
I got an axe handle pistol on a graveyard frame
that shoot tombstone bullets, wearin' ball and chain
drink TNT, smoke dynamite
I hope some screwball starts a fight

'cause I'm ready, ready as anybody can be
well I'm ready for you, I hope you're ready for me

all you pretty little chicks, with your long brown hair
I know you feels like I ain't nowhere
stop what your doin' and come over here
and I'll prove to you baby, that I ain't no square

'cause I'm ready, as ready as anybody can be
I am ready for you, I hope you're ready for me

I've been drinkin' gin like never before
it feels so good, that I want you to know
one more drink, I wish you would
it takes a whole lotta lovin' just to make me feel good

I'm ready, ready as anybody can be
I am ready for you, I hope you're ready for me
