Love Is a Terrible Thing to Waste | To Love a Wild Fire 2020

Key of A | (D 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 problemcause 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 hours, I 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

Key of C | (F harp)

4X

Intro Guitar Riff C chord then lick

 

Verse———

Some say that the love of the wanderlust 

is just a life that wont 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

 

Chorus ———

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

 

Verse———

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

Make a love stop along the way – yeah yeah Back seat style yeah

 

Chorus ———

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

 

Verse———

I got myself a roady in my hand 

talking a cool Pabst Blue ribbon, in a can

Im 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.

 

Chorus ———

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 last line getting softer & softer

Out in the night shooting stars from the sky, baby

Lay Down Low | Not Yet Released

Key of Eb | (Ab harp)

A

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

B 4X
Don’t you know I’ve
got to lay down low

 

A

a rendezvous arranged by cell got the marker placed

I hear them at the front door I leave as I hear it break

veiled in darkened shadow I make a slow retreat

All those fools a chasing think they’re in the Know

B 4X
Slipped past in the night  just to lay down low

 

A

Once again, Im running like the Devil in the dark of night

kill the lights my friend and throw it into 4WD

these woods and roads I’ve known just about all of my life

this here truck can motor but it goes too slow

B 4X
Don’t you know I’ve got to lay down low


A

Sometimes you play a hand and nothin’ ends turning right

but just past the state line ooh an airstrip dark as night

load the cargo sit back as we take flight

jet plane take me to where I want to go

B 4X
Said I got to leave the ground so I can lay down low

Can't Find My Way

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

Key of E | (A harp)

babe, I can’t find my way back home
I cant 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 is 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
moon screams out my name
lord I’ve been like a moth to the fire
I’m tuned into the call wild

Baby HELL YES I know
hard living’s not where I want to be
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

Now I know that I’ve always been home
I’m now 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 the 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

Key of D | (G harp)

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, no no 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

Think they’re so damn tough, I know they’ve lost their way . . . been led astray

ake all the good a-woman proud never do me no wrong
Walk to your own beat all along, my heart kiss the sky like a Marvin Gaye SONG

Radiant beau-ti-ful clothes Such a wonder baby, knowing that you LOVE ME


Oh Babe
What a lucky soul am I…
