Power Of The Blues
(Gary Moore/Bob Daisley/Darrin Mooney)

Did you ever get the feelin'
everything was going wrong?
Did you ever get the feelin'
all the good times have gone?
Don't try to fight it,
you know it's no use.
No way you can beat it,
you're messin' with the power of the blues.
Mm-hm.

Did you ever get the feelin'
nothing's goin' your way?
Did you ever get the feelin'
that it just ain't your day?
Ain't no use to fight it,
you're just gonna lose.
You know you can't beat it,
you're messin' with the power of the blues,
power of the blues.

You can't run,
and you just can't hide.
The blues has got you
way down inside.
Well, have you heard the news,
they're talking ‘bout the power of the blues.
Yeah.

Did you ever get the feelin'
everything was going wrong?
Did you ever get the feelin'
all the good times have gone?
Well, don't try to fight it,
you know it's no use.
Don't try to fight it,
you're messin' with the power of the blues.

You're messin' with the power of the blues,
power of the blues.

There's A Hole
(Gary Moore)

What is it that you want?
What is it that you need?
Are you gonna take everything?
Do you wanna see me bleed?

What is it that you're looking for?
Do you always have to take some more?
Until there's nothing left to feel,
nothing left of you and me.

There's a hole where we used to be.
Everything's so empty now without you and me.
There's a time that we never had.
Everything's so empty now and it feels so sad.

What is it that you never see?
What are you tryin' to do to me?
Or is it that you just don't care
that I'm in misery?

You gotta set the record straight
before it starts to get to late.
I'm beggin' on my bended knees,
won't you hear me please?

There's a hole where we used to be.
Everything's so empty now without you and me.
There's a time that we never had.
Everything's so empty now and it feels so sad.

Does it really have to be this way?
Do you ever hear a word I say?

There's a hole where we used to be.
Everything's so empty now without you and me.
There's a time that we never had.
Everything's so empty now and it feels so,
and it feels so sad.

There's a hole, there's a hole,
there's a hole where we used to,
where we used to, where we used to be.

Tell Me Woman
(Gary Moore)

Tell me woman
how do you see a man like me?
Tell me woman
how do you see a man like me?
Well, do I keep you satisfied
or do I need to set you free?

Tell me woman
how do I figure in your life?
Tell me woman
how do I figure in your life?
Well, are you gonna stick around
or will you cut me like a knife?

From the early, early mornin'
to the middle of the night.
Will you try to tell me woman
if I'm doin' you alright?
Tell me woman
how do you see a man like me?
Well, do I keep you satisfied
or do I need to set you free?
Come on.

From the early, early mornin'
to the middle of the night.
Will you try to tell me woman
if I'm doin' you alright?
Tell me woman
how do you see a man like me?
Mm-hm.
Well, do I keep you satisfied
or do I need to set you free?
Yeah.

That's Why I Play The Blues
(Gary Moore)

Some people say
why do you play the blues?
Some even ask me
if I paid my dues.
Tell them it's somethin'
to get me through
everytime that I think of you.
That's why,
that's why I play the blues.

Some people wanna know
if the blues is here to stay.
Tell them I don't know,
but that it's with me every day.
Stops me from fallin'
down to the ground
everytime you're not around.
That's why,
that's why I play the blues.

I don't know if it's wrong or right,
but the blues is with me day and night.
Just don't ask me about the way I feel,
all I know is that the blues is real.

Tell them it's somethin'
to get me through
everytime that I'm thinking of you.
That's why,
that's why I play the blues.

That's why I play the blues.
That's why I play the blues.
That's why,
that's why I play the blues.

Evil
(Willie Dixon)

If you're a long way from home
and you can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
somethin' just ain't right.
That's evil,
that's evil goin' on.
I am warning you, brother,
you better watch your happy home.

Well, you're a long way from home
and you can't sleep at all.
You know another mule's
been kicking in your stall.
That's evil,
that's evil goin' on.
I have to pardon you, brother,
you better watch your happy home.

Well, if you call her on the telephone
and she answers awful slow.
Better grab the first thing smokin'
as you have to hold the phone.
That's evil,
that's evil goin' on.
I have to warn you, brother,
you better watch your happy home, yeah.

If you make it to your house
and you knock on the front door.
Run around the back
you catch him just before he goes.
That's evil,
that's evil goin' on.
I am warning you, brothers,
you better watch your happy home.

Yeah.
Huh.
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, that's evil.

Memory Pain
(Percy Mayfield)

Serve me right to suffer,
serve me right to be alone, mm-hm.
Serve me right to suffer,
serve me right to be alone.
'Cause I'm living in the memory
of a time that's passed and gone.

Everytime I see a woman,
you know it makes me think of mine.
Everytime I see a woman,
you know it makes me think of mine.
'Cause I'm living in the memory
of a time that's gone on by,
gone on by.

Serve me right to suffer,
serves me right to be alone.
Serve me right to suffer,
serve me right to be alone.
'Cause I'm living in the memory
of a time that's passed and gone,

Well, she walked out one morning,
said she won't be late.
Walked out one morning,

Torn Inside
(Gary Moore)

Sometimes you sit and wonder,
wonder where it all went wrong.
Sometimes you sit and wonder
where it all went wrong.
And you try to find a reason
why all the good times have gone.

Now every man feel misery.
Sometimes they wish they'd never bore.
Now every man feel misery.
You know, sometimes they wish they'd never bore.
Especially when their heart's been broken
and their love inside is torn.

Did you ever sit and wonder,
wonder where it all went wrong?
Did you ever sit and wonder, people,
wonder where it all went wrong?
Can you ask yourself this question;
Where have all the good times gone?
