Enough Of The Blues
(Gary Moore)

Somebody help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
Somebody help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.

Had me a woman.
Oh Lord, I done her wrong.
Had me a woman.
Oh Lord, I done her wrong.
She got sick and tired of the cheatin',
and now she's up and gone.

That's why she left me,
left me in misery.
That's why she left me,
left me in misery.
Yes, she did.
I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

Somebody help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
Somebody help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
Uh-uh.
Well, I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.
Oh, no.

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

Somebody help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
Somebody's gotta help me.
Lord, I'm in misery.
Yes, I am.
I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.

I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.
Oh, no.
I had enough of the blues,
but the blues ain't had enough of me.

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah.

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.

You Upset Me Baby
(B.B. King/Joe Josea)

That's right!

Yes, she's 36 bust,
28 in the waist,
44 on the hip.
She's got some crazy legs.

It upsets me baby.
Ooh, upsets me baby,
Yeah, I'm tellin' you
she's so fine,
somethin' that you ought to see.

Well, she's not too tall,
complexion is fair.
It knocks me out
the way she wears her hair.

You upsets me baby.
You upsets me baby.
Like beein' hit by a fallin' tree,
woman what you do to me.

Well, I try to describe her.
It's hard to stop.
I better stop now
in case I got a weak heart.

You upsets me baby.
You upsets me baby.
Like beein' hit by a fallin' tree,
woman what you do to me.
Yeah!

Yeah!

Try to describe her.
It's hard to stop.
I better stop now
in case I got a weak heart.

You upsets me baby.
You upsets me baby.
Like beein' hit by a fallin' tree,
woman what you do to me.

It upsets me baby.
It upsets me baby.
It upsets me baby.
It upsets me baby.
Like beein' hit by a fallin' tree,
woman what you do to me.
That's right.

Hoh!

Cold Black Night
(Gary Moore)

It was a cold black night,
and the rain was falling down.
It was a cold black night,

the night that my baby left town.

It was the darkest day,
and the wind was howlin' through.
It was the darkest day,
and the wind came howlin' through.
It was the darkest day,
day my baby said we're through.

Oh, come back baby,
never did you no wrong.
Come back baby,
I never did you no wrong.
I've been sleeping in the ground
ever since your love been gone.

It was a cold black night,
and the rain was falling down.

Stormy Monday
(T-Bone Walker)

Call it stormy Monday,

The eagle flies on Friday,
Saturday I go out to play.

Ain't Got You
(Calvin Carter)

I've got a Maserati GT.
I got snakeskin upholstery.
I've got a charge account at Goldblatt's,
but I ain't got you.

I've got a closet full of clothes,
but no matter where it goes,
it keeps a ring through my nose,
but I ain't got you.

Got a tavern,
a liquor store.
I play the numbers,
yeah four-fourty-four.
I got a mojo,
don't you know.
I'm all dressed up
with no place to go.

I got women to the left of me.
I got women to the right of me.
I got women all around me,
but I ain't got you.
No, I ain't got you.

Picture Of The Moon
(Gary Moore)

Picture of the moon
you gave to me that night.
The stars were out to play,
the moon was shining bright.
If only I had known
that it would end so soon.
I was left with a picture of the moon.

The sound of soft guitars
beneath the spanish skies.
Across the candle lights
the sadness in your eyes.
If only I had known
that it would end so soon.
I was left with a picture of the moon.

Picture of the moon
you gave to me that night.
The stars were out to play,
the moon was shining bright.
However could I know
that it would end so soon?
I was left with a picture of the moon.
I was left with a picture of the moon.
All that's left is a picture of the moon.

Looking Back
(Watson)

I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.

I saw her walking down the street,
though little does she look so sweet.
I followed her for half a mile,
I had to stop and talk a while.

I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.

She had a yellow golden hair,
I'm gonna follow everywhere.
She had a wiggle when she walk,
I wanted her to stop and talk.

You know that I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.
Yeah!

She had a yellow golden hair,
I'm gonna follow everywhere.
She had a wiggle when she walk, yeah,
I wanted her to stop and talk.

You know that I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.

You know that I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.

You know that I was looking back to see
if she was looking back to see
if I was looking back at her.

Drowning In Tears
(Gary Moore)

The woman I love doesn't want me.
I'm having to face my worst fears.
She's promised her heart to another.
Feel like I'm drowning in tears.

She is the one I have lived for.
I've waited for so many years.
Now she is leaving me lonely.
Feel like I'm drowning in tears.

I was the one who waited endlessly,
sending you kisses from the stars.
I was the one who fought relentlessly,
wishing you hadn't gone so far.

The woman I love doesn't want me.
I'm having to face my worst fears.
She's promised her heart to another.
Feel like I'm drowning in tears.

Feel like I'm drowning in tears.

Livin' With The Blues
(Gary Moore)

I've been thinking 'bout you,
drinking 'bout you.
Tryin' to face up
to the fact that we're through.
The moment I wake,
the whole day through,
I'm livin' with the blues.

Minding my time,
drinking the wine.
Tryin' to accept
that you're no longer mine.
The moment I wake,
the whole day through,
I'm livin' with the blues.

Hearts can be broken,
sometimes they mend.
Words left unspoken
right to the end.

I'll be thinking 'bout you,
just drinking 'bout you.
Tryin' to face up
to the fact that we're through.
The moment I wake,
the whole day through,
I'm livin' with the blues.

Thinking 'bout you,
just drinking 'bout you.
Tryin' to face up
to the fact that we're through.
The moment I wake,
the whole day through,
I'm livin' with the blues.

The moment I wake,
the whole day through,
I'm livin' with the blues.
