GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES

In the days of my youth
I was told what it means to be a man
And now I've reached that age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try
I find my way to the same old jam

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Sixteen I fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be
It only took a couple of days
'Til she was rid of me
She swore that she would be all mine
An' love me till the end
But when I whispered in her ear
I lost another friend, ohhh

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

I know what it means to be alone
I sure do wish I was at home
I don't care what the neighbors say
I'm gonna love you each and every day
You can feel the beat within my heart
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't never gonna part
BABE I'M GONNA LEAVE YOU

Babe, baby, baby, I'm gonna leave you
I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you
I'm leave you in the summertime
Leave you when the summer comes a-rollin'
Leave you when the summer comes along

Babe, babe, babe, babe, babe, babe, baby, mmm, baby, I don't wanna leave you
I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble
Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I believin'

I can hear it callin' me back home, oh oh

Babe, oh, babe, I'm gonna leave you
Oh, baby, you know, I've really got to leave you
Oh I can hear it callin' me
I said don't you hear it callin' me the way it used to do

But I got to go away from this place
I've got to quit you, yeah
Ooh, baby, baby, baby, baby,

Oh, woman, woman, I know, I know

We gonna go walkin' through the park every day
Come what may, every day
Ohhh, mama, baba, mama babe

DAZED AND CONFUSED

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Lots of people talkin', few of them know
Soul of a woman was created below, yeah

You hurt and abused tellin' all of your lies
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been
Gonna love you baby, here I come again

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard-earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been
Sweet little baby, I want you again

  (Guitar Solo)

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will
Tongue wag so much when I send you the bill, oh yeah, alright

YOUR TIME IS GONNA COME

Lyin', cheatin', hurtin', that's all you seem to do
Messin' around every guy in town
Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new
Always the same, playin' your game
Drive me insane, trouble is gonna come to you
One of these days and it won't be long
You'll look for me but baby, I'll be gone
This is all I gotta say to you woman

Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come

Made up my mind to break you this time
Won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry
Do want you want, I won't take the brunt
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore
Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay
Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart
People talkin' all around
Watch out woman, no longer
Is the joke gonna be on my heart
You've been bad to me woman
But it's coming back home to you

Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come, mama, mama baby
Your time is gonna come, now now, now now
Your time is gonna come, really is now
Your time is gonna come, oh oh oh oh
Your time is gonna come, mama, mama baby
Your time is gonna come, I gotta get away from you baby
Your time is gonna come

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

Hey little girl, stop what you're doin'
Hey little girl, you'll drive me to ruin
I don't know what it is that I like about you
But I like it a lot
Won't let me hold you
Let me feel your lovin' charms

Communication breakdown
It's always the same
Having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane

Hey girl, I got something I think you ought to know
Hey babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so

Cause I like your charms

Communication breakdown

Said you messed up my happy home
Made me mistreat my only child
Yes, you did, babe, ohhh

Oh, wanna love some other man too

  (Guitar Solo)

I was a young man, I couldn't resist
Started thinkin' it all over, just what I had missed
Got me a girl and I kissed her and then and then
Whoops, oh Lord, well I did it again
Now I've got ten children of my own
I got another child on the way that makes eleven
But I'm in constant heaven
I know it's alright in my mind
'Cause I got a little schoolgirl and she's all mine
I can't get through to her 'cause it doesn't permit
But I'm gonna give her everything I've got to give

Oh Rosie, oh girl
Oh Rosie, oh girl
Steal away now, steal away
Steal away baby, steal away
Little Robert Anthony wants to come and play
Why don't you come with me baby
Steal away, alright, alright

Well they call me the hunter, that's my name
They call me the hunter, that's how I got my fame
Ain't no need to hide, ain't no need to run
'Cause I've got you in the sights of my gun

How many more times
Barrelhouse all night long, alright
How many more times
Barrelhouse all night long
But I've got to get to you, baby
