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 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

 

Fire on the Mountain | Cover

Fire On the Mountain | Cover

Key of B | (Ab harp)

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

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

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, 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

Dont Matter Much, New Day Dawn | Not Yet Released

Key of F or F# | (Ab or A harp)

4X Intro jam 

A

Ain’t no right ain’t no wrong

when you sit and watch a new day dawn

Ain’t no wrong ain’t no right

been sittin’ since the dark of night

 

Walked myself to the edge of town,

made damn sure no one follow me down

Yes and to keep myself a little company,

Well I gotta little hipper from the whiskey family

 

B
But it don’t, no it don’t, yes it don’t,

matter much anyway

all alone, all alone, one and only, 

help me get my thinking straight

 

A
Just cut the 
cable and the TV screen

just a rabid dog barking back at me.

So many voices chiming through my head

cant put a face to all the words just said.

 

Get more listening to the wind and rain

or the rumble of a diesel train  – here she come here she comes now babe

cause a mans a man and a facts a fact

but those are lies and we can’t be lied to like that

 

B
But it don’t, no it don’t, yes it don’t,

matter much anyway

all alone, all alone, one and only, 

help me get my thinking straight

 

SOLOS

Rotate instruments through the entire AB sections 

 

Throw a bone to the DRUMMER

Hear the drummer get wicked!!!  Hear here the drummer get wicked!

 

A

You cant tell a lie through a song

and expect folks to listen all that long.

Guitar note catch a breeze and off it go,

and whos gonna catch em I don’t know.

 

Way over top a voice gonna hit that note

and you know it’s coming from a blueman’s throat.

thats my version of a TV screen,

you see it don’t have to be all obscene.

 

 

B
But it don’t, no it don’t, yes it don’t,

matter much anyway

all alone, all alone, one and only, 

help me get my thinking straight
