You Really Got Me

(Ray Davies)

(Instrumental)

At the Crossroads

(Doug Sahm)

Leaving me girl and moving on down the road
You left me many burdens such a heavy load
And it sure does bring me out when I think about what went down
Well the crossroads all my life it has been
And I'm so afraid but now I'm trying to see
I just rode on through life till I took the time to concentrate on you
Well you can teach me lots lessons
You can bring me a lot of gold
But you just can't live in Texas
If you don't have a lot of soul

I'm leaving here tonight for the very last time
Yes I'm leaving you babe cause now I know that you ain't mine
And where you're living now you'll find out and how that you never had a friend

Well you can preach me like a lesson
You can bring me a lot of gold
But you just can't live in Texas
If you don't have a lot of soul

Well I'm leaving here tonight for the very last time
Yes I'm leaving you girl cause now I know that you ain't mine
Some day a change will come and you'll be there beside me one more time
One more time
Yeah!
And you'll be there beside me
One more time
Yes you'll be there beside me
One more time

Laugh at Me

(Sonny Bono)

Well how can I be like any guy
Why do they have to make me run
What do they care about the clothes that I wear
What do they get from making fun
Well they got a lot of space
And if you don't like my face
It ain't me who's going anywhere
Cause I don't care
Let them laugh at me
If that's so fair
Well then I don't have to care
To be free until they laugh at me
And I'll cry for you
And I'll pray for you
And I'll do everything that the man upstairs said to do
I'll do it all for you babe
Yes well I'll do it all for you
It's got to be sometime
It's got to be somewhere
I'm going to make that other cheek mine
Then maybe the next time
That you don't wear a silk tie
And I can walk by and say hi
Say hi instead of why
Instead of why babe
Instead of why
Instead of why babe
Yeah!
Instead of why babe
Instead of why babe
Instead of why babe
Instead of why babe
Why do you laugh at me
Why do you laugh at me
Why do you laugh at me
Why do you laugh at me
Yeah!

Backsliding Fearlessly

(Ian Hunter)

I dreamt of being horses in shackles of gold
And the men that were young then are now terribly old
The graveyard was creaking with too many bones
While the bishop was praying his cassock was sold
Three cheers for the innocent though he is perverse
Three screams for the hangman as he cries for the hearse
I weep for the rebels conventional ways
For he loses his mind while the devious stay By the way
If the world saluted you
Well what would you do if you could be there
Well would you still take me
Would you take me anywhere
If the world saluted you
Well what would you say when things were down
Would you still want me
Would you want me around

So come all ye faithful and slaughter your lambs
Your minds have been whipped by experienced hands
I wish we were children I'd welcome the change
And the mind of an old man you can't rearrange
Ain't it strange
If the world saluted you
Well what would you do if you could be there
Would you still
Would you still take me anywhere
If the world saluted you
What would you say when things were down
Would you still want me
Would you still want me around

Rock and Roll Queen

(Mick Ralphs)

Listen woman you needn't look so stupid when I call your name out loud
Cause everybody thinks you're a sweet smelling girl with intelligence and you
know how
I wouldn't want anyone else to know
About the way you really are
You're just a rock and roll queen
You know what I mean
And I'm just a rock and roll star

Listen woman you needn't go to bed with everybody that you meet
Cause everybody thinks you're a sweet little girl with intelligence in your
feet
I wouldn't want anyone else to know
About the way you really are
You're just a rock and roll queen
You know what I mean
And I'm just a rock and roll star
Alright!
You're just a rock and roll queen
You know what I mean
And I'm just a rock and roll star

Half Moon Bay

(Mick Ralphs/Ian Hunter)

Well the colours cross my mind in a wave
And the feelings that I find so very hard to say
And I've gone with the rain making out
But you never felt the same you are in doubt
Well
You mystified me I know
And then you walked by me
And the spell was broken in two

Too soon my eyes grow dim and I try
To recognise the figures drifting by
And too late the sane man comes with the key
And I fight the loneliness that just ain't me
And now the evening bows to the night
And I feel the world go down before my eyes
And recklessly I'm running round
As I try to find another that ain't so proud
Hey you know
There's someone who seems like you in every way
I'm going to search I'm going to search I'm going to search
I'm going to search every day

Many years ago in my past
I realise my dream would never last
And constantly the letters fade
And I sense the better half is already played
And the colours cross my mind in a wave
And the feelings that I find so very hard to say
And I've gone with the rain making out
But you never you never felt the same you are in doubt
Oh you're still in doubt
