Terrible Thing to Waste | To Love a Wild Fire

Key of D | (G harp)

A
Take to the street to play music
got my amplify, open guitar case
All of the hookers and hustlers gonna make em move, where they congregate

Pro-stit-tutions illegal but ya’d never know, by the look of this place
Mind you I’ve got no problem ‘cause I tell you LOVE, is a terrible thing to waste

B
Ask me where Im goin’?
I’m a going way down to the dirty side of town
Ask me what I’ll be up to?I say Im a gonna spread a little love around

A
Playing myself some guitar
a big old smile, right across my face
I’ve been out here for 3 hoursI think its time, to smoke a little jay

Inspiration she finds me, on crowded sidewalks, just about any place
When Im with her I hold her so closely ‘ cause I tell you LOVE is a terrible thing to waste

B
Ask me where Im goin’?
I’m a going way down to the dirty side of town
Ask me what I’ll be up to?I say Im a gonna spread a little love around

 

Scarlet Begonias | Cover

Key of E Major | (A harp)

As I was walkin’ ’round Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the Winter but a nip to the air
From the other direction, she was calling my eye
It could be an illusion, but I might as well try, might as well try

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
And I knew, without askin’, she was into the blues
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls

In the thick of the evening, when the dealing got rough
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door
I had one of those flashes I’d been there before, been there before

F#
Well, I ain’t always right, but I’ve never been wrong
Seldom turns out the way it does in a song
Once in a while, you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right

Well, there ain’t nothing wrong with the way she moves
Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues
And there’s nothing wrong with the look that’s in her eyes
Had to learn the hard way to let her pass by, let her pass by

Wind in the willow’s playin’ “Tea For Two”
The sky was yellow, and the sun was blue
Strangers stoppin’ strangers just to shake their hand
Everybody’s playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band

 

 

Fire On the Mountain | Cover

Key of E Major | (A harp). Modulate to F# Reggae to Flow into Ragtop

Long-distance runner, what you standin’ there for?
Get up, get up, get out of the door
You’re playin’ cold music on the barroom floor
Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core
There’s a dragon with matches that’s loose on the town
Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down, yeah

Fire, fire on the mountain 4X

Almost ablaze, still you don’t feel the heat
It takes all you got just to stay on the beat
You say it’s a livin’, we all gotta eat
But you’re here alone, there’s no one to compete
If Mercy’s a business, I wish it for you
More than just ashes when your dreams come true

Fire, fire on the mountain 4X

Long distance runner, what you holdin’ out for?
Caught in slow motion in a dash through the door
The flame from your stage has now spread to the floor
You gave all you had, why you wanna give more?
The more that you give, the more it will take
To the thin line beyond which you really can’t fake, yeah

Fire, fire on the mountain 4X

So Lucky (Tomorrow) | New Release

Key of A | (D harp) Think A major Scale focusing on the E note when Soloing

A
I got an itch I got a feeling, wanna meet in the street tomorrow
Had ENOUGH, being Locked up IN-SIDE today

Let the golden sun shine down, cast our shadows
You want anything, babe, you can have your way

B
And as we wade into the evening city lights are gonna shine
Choose to use a little hustle Let the city do our bidding tonight

C
Come what may, 
nothing to lose, but to choose, do or die, win or lose
No Excuse, just get loose  What if all hell breaks loose?
We should be so lucky
So LUCKY, my babe, she get me HIGH
3rd st, 3rd st, got to find my baby on 3rd st

A
Need a new change of clothes, hug the curb real close past drug slingin’ rouges
Packing so much heat, nno need to die today

Hope to make some time, hop off the subway line
Walking east to west, hu-up from 125th
When I see you, pretty babe, gonna make my day

A
I got an itch I got a feeling, won’t leave the bed till tomorrow
I got my love right here in our birthday suits today

Let the golden sun shine down, cast our shadows
You want anything, babe, you can have your way

Ragtop Car | Not released

Ragtop Car | Not Yet Released

Key of F | (Bb harp). Modulate to Cm follow Mike

Some say that the love of the wanderlust
Is just a life that won’t amount to much,
A man born with rambling shoes
Is just another man born to loose
I want to set the record straight,
Before I hit the road today.  Hit the road jack no more

Got a ragtop car, enough gas to take us far
Enough away, cause I plan to drive all-day
When the evening comes we’ll be like loaded guns
Out in the night shooting stars from the sky, baby

When the blue sky’s lost in a concrete maze,
I get the feeling, I wanna get lost for days
Lace-up my rambling shoes
Get a chance to beat the 3rd street blues
Race up the Taconic Parkway
Drive until the break of Day( Make a love stop along the way) – yeah yeah Back seat style yeah

Got a ragtop car, enough gas to take us far
Enough away, cause I plan to drive all-day
When the evening comes we’ll be like loaded guns
Out in the night shooting stars from the sky, baby

SOLOS INSTRUMENTAL

I got myself a roady in my hand
Talking a cool Pabst Blue ribbon, in a can
I’m not trying to be tough just priming up the motor of love
Gotta loosen up here come my baby OHHHH, I love the way she just a struttin’ that stuff.

Got a ragtop car, enough gas to take us far
Enough away, cause I plan to drive all-day
When the evening comes we’ll be like loaded guns
Out in the night shooting stars from the sky, baby


FADE OUT repeat the last line getting softer & softer

Out in the night shooting stars from the sky, baby

You ain’t never gonna track me down
Heard it said you want a piece of the action- gimme action

Key of A | (D harp) E is the 5th

Without a warning you broke my heart, takin’ it baby, tore it apart
And you left me standin’ in the dark, said your love for me was dyin’
Come on baby, baby please come on baby, cause I’m on my knees
Turn on your lights let it shine on me shine on your love lightLet it shine on me let shine, let it shine

And I need you darlin’ to make things all right

Turn on your lights let it shine on me
Turn on your love light let it shine on me
Let it shine, let it shine, let it

Can’t Find My Way (Call of the Wild) | To Love a Wild Fire

A Blues Pent (Dom V) | Key of D (I) | (D cross harp)

Babe I can’t find my way back home
I can’t find no air to breathe
I can’t find my way outta here
Lord it might be the death of me

Lord, I know that you need me home
The wheel in the sky on fire
Gonna say to me it’s just a lie
When that something calls me out in the night

= Chorus
Gone are the times away, gone are the nights alone
I can see your light shine, it brings me back from the call of the wild

Neon light burn holes in my eyes
The moon screams out my name
Lord I’ve been like a moth to the fire
I’m tuned, tuned into the call wild

Baby HELL YES I know
Hard living’s not where I want to be
It’s just the price of what I think is being free
I don’t know what calls me out into the night

= Chorus
Gone are the times away, gone are the nights alone
I can see your light shine, it brings me back from the call of the wild

= Verse
Now I know that I’ve always been home
Awake from that lucid dream
The one that took the breath outta me
The one that scared the death outta me

Lord, I know that you got me home
I see love in your eyes are on fire
I know that you are my burning light
your beauty called me back in from the night

= Chorus
Gone are the times away, gone are the nights alone
I can see your light shine, it brings me back from the call of the wild

Down Low | Sessions

Key of Em

Sometimes you play a hand and it turns it all upside down
I’ve got a real bad feeling that they’re coming for me now
Said don’t you hear the tires burning up to the house
Hear them call my name but I just can’t go

Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low,Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low
Lay down low, lay down low, Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low

A rendezvous arranged by cell got the marker placed
Comotion at the front door into splinters I hear it break
Veiled by the darkened shadow I make a slow retreat
All those fools a chasing think they’re in the know

Slipped past in the night just to lay down low, Slipped past in the night just to lay down low
Lay down low, lay down low, Slipped past in the night just to lay down low

Once again, I’m running like the Devil in the dark of night
Kill the lights my friend and throw it into four-wheel drive
These woods and roads I’ve known just about all of my life
This here truck can motor but it goes too slow

Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low, Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low
Lay down low, lay down low, Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low

Sometimes you play a hand and nothing ends turning right
But just past the state line, there’s an airstrip dark as night
Gotta, load the cargo, sit back as we take flight
Jet plane take me to where I want to go

Because I got to leave the ground so I can lay down low, I said I got to leave the ground so I can lay down low
Lay down low, lay down low, I got to leave the ground so I can lay down low

Got to leave the ground behind
Got to leave
Got to kiss the sky

Come Join Me | Not Released

Key of Dm | F major

Baby come join me you can be my guest
I’ll take the wheel you take a rest
Baby take a seat you can rest your eyes
Lay back your head, take in that blue sky

 

Sun always shines when I’m with you cant think of nothing I’d rather do

Gonna be so good, you with me, winds at our back down to the sea

Baby come join Me

 

Baby come join me you can be my guest
I’ll take the wheel you take a rest
Baby take a seat you can rest your eyes
Lay back your head, take in that blue sky

 

Dream of that night that I held you in a field of fireflies till the morning dew

When I first met you the moon filled the sky, turned your eyes blue all through the night

Remember Me…. Cause I remember you

 

Baby come join me you can be my guest
I’ll take the wheel you take a rest
Baby take a seat you can rest your eyes
Lay back your head, take in that blue sky

Your all questions I ask to the sky, you are my night and my day

All is aligned when I look to your eyes, you are the answer, my love

 

 

Aint Wasting Time No More | Cover

Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain
The week before, they all seemed the same
With the help of God and true friends, I’ve come to realize
I still have two strong legs, and even wings to fly

 

So I, ain’t a-wasting time no more
‘Cause time goes by like hurricanes and faster things

 

Well, Lord, Lord, Miss Sally, why all your cryin’?
Been around here three long days, lookin’ like we’re dyin’
Go step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above
And go on downtown, baby, find somebody to love

 

Meanwhile I, ain’t a-wasting time no more
‘Cause time goes by like hurricanes and faster things

 

You don’t need no gypsy to tell you why, Ya can’t let one precious day to slip by
Well, look inside yourself, and if you don’t see what you want, Maybe sometimes then ya don’t
But, leave your mind alone and just get high

 

Well, by and by, way after many years have gone
And all the war freaks die off, leavin’ us alone
We’ll raise our children, in the peaceful way we can
It’s up to you and me brother, To try and try again

 

So, hear us now, we ain’t wastin’ time no more
‘Cause time rolls by like hurricanes
Runnin’ after the subway train
Don’t forget the pourin’ rain

Dusty roads through the canyon gorge
Like a bullet baby how we run
Steer me babe with a gentle hand
On into that old boy sun

 

I am your Motor Kine, I know you’ve seen me riding
Greased back I shine like lighting, leg up mamma and take a ride


Dusty roads through the canyon gorge
Like a bullet baby how we run
Steer me babe with a gentle hand
On into that old boy sun

 

4 measures of Descending Bass walk down, descending Bass Verse———

Your desert is of the rarest beauty,  I’ve never seen the like
Your sands they give me my water, Your sun keeps me alive

Race down the pacific ocean
Run down those Mexico sands
Just for nothing babe, just cause I want to
Gonna fly all across these lands

 

Motor Kine don’t take low octane
Get yourself out and buy me some premium fuel
Motor Kine don’t run on that cheap stuff
Ease your hand mamma, keep me cool

Race down the pacific ocean
Run down those Mexico sands
Just for nothing babe, just cause I want to
Gonna fly all across these lands
