When The Sun Goes Down
(Gary Moore/Cass Lewis/Darrin Mooney)

I get so angry with people in this town.
I get so angry, the way they put me down, m-hm.
I had enough,
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.

I get so angry with people everywhere, m-hm.
I get so angry, the way they stop and stare, m-hm.
Had me enough,
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.

I've had enough of hangin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.
I had enough of hangin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.
Hm.

Makes me so mad, the people in this town.
Makes me so mad, the way they put me down, m-hm.
I had enough,
leavin' when the sun goes down.
That's right.

I've had enough of hangin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.
I've had enough of stickin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.

Had me enough.
Had me enough.
I've had enough.

I've had enough of hangin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.
I've had enough of stickin' round.
I'm leavin' when the sun goes down.

I've had enough!
I had enough!
I had enough, 'nough!
I've had enough!
Had me enough!

Rectify
(Gary Moore/Cass Lewis/Darrin Mooney)

I never knew you were so close to the edge.
I saw you standing up on top of that ledge.
You never told me that the damage was done.
How could I know I'm not the only one?

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

I always said you were too close to yourself.
You never took the time for no one else.
I told you that you would be sorry one day.
But all you did was let the shadows play.

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

I've seen your kind too many times before.
Now Evil Joe is knockin' on your door.
But one day soon you'll find it's all too late.
And what you had's all turned to bitter hate.

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

Gonna rectify,
I'm gonna rectify.
Gonna rectify,
I'm gonna rectify.
I'm gonna rectify you.

Ooh-ah.

Wasn't Born In Chicago
(Gary Moore)

I wasn't born in Chigaco,
but I can play the blues.
I wasn't part of no union,
but I paid my dues.

I never got into a train wreck,
but I went off the rails.
I never went under the hammer,
'cause I was hard as nails.

I never swam in dirty water,
but my name was mud.
I never knew you was a virus,
but you got into my blood.

I never was a politician,
but I learned to lie.
I never led a delegation,
I was too smart to try.

I wasn't born in Chigaco,
but I can play the blues.
I wasn't part of no union,
but I paid my dues.

I never was no kind of prisoner,
but I've been to jail.
And I was never in a train wreck,
but I went off the rails, big time.

I never swam in dirty water,
but my name was mud.
I never knew you was a virus,
you got into my blood, blood.

I wasn't born in Chigaco,
but I can play the blues, ah.

Stand Up
(Gary Moore/Cass Lewis/Darrin Mooney)

You can do what you want,
nobody can stop you, baby.
You can do what you like,
no one's gonna stop you, baby.

You've gotta stand up for your freedom.
You've gotta stand up for yourself.

You can say what you feel,
nobody can stop you talkin'.
You can go where you want,
as long as your talk, you're walkin'.

You've gotta stand up for your freedom.
You've gotta stand up for yourself.

You can do what you want,
nobody can stop you, baby.
You can do what you like,
no one's gonna stop you, baby.

You've gotta stand up for your freedom, freedom.
You've gotta, gotta, gotta stand up for yourself, yourself.

Just Can't Let You Go
(Gary Moore)

I want you back again.
I need your love again.
I just can't let you go.
I just can't let you go.

My love has been strong before.
My words have been wrong before.
I just can't let you go.
I just can't let you go, my love.

Do you still remember
the way it used to be?
Do you still remember
when it was you and me?
I would do anyting
not to see you walk away.
Get right down on my knees
and beg you to stay.

Ooh, ooh.

I want you back again.
I need your love again.
I just can't let you go.
I just can't let you go.

My Baby (She's So Good To Me)
(Gary Moore)

Well, my baby, she's so good to me.
My baby, she's so good to me.
I couldn't picked a sweeter cherry
off the cherry tree.

She makes my breakfast in the morning,
love me all night long.
She makes my breakfast in the morning,
love me all night long.
Well, I love her, I love her,
the little girl can do no wrong.
That's right!

'Cause my baby, she's so good to me.
Well, my baby, yeah, she's so good to me.
Yes, she is.
I couldn't picked a sweeter cherry
off the cherry tree.
Yeah!

My baby, she's so good to me, ah.
Well, my baby, she's so good to me.

She's my baby, aogh.
She's my baby,
my baby.
That's right.
I couldn't picked a sweeter cherry
off the cherry tree.
Yeah.

World Of Confusion
(Gary Moore)

Big world full of confusion.
Big world, ain't no illusion.
Too much information
coming at me every day of my life, yeah.
Can't make no sense,
seems like there's no place to hide.
Mm.

Big world full of confusion.
Can't reach any conclusions.
No matter how I try,
I just can't seem to make no sense of what's going on, no.
Gets me so crazy,
I don't know what I can do, m-hm.

I always knew
this day would come.
I saw it comin',
I'm on the run.
I always knew
it wouldn't last.
Everything's goin' by me too fast
in the big world, in the big world.

Big house full of corruption.
So much global disruption.
Too much information
comin' at me every day of my life.
Yes, there is.
Can't make no sense,
seems like there's no place to hide.

In the big world.
In the big world.
In the big world.

Ball And Chain
(Gary Moore/Cass Lewis/Darrin Mooney)

Well, my baby gone and left me,
leavin' on that mornin' train.
Well, my baby gone and left me,
leavin' on that mornin' train.
Said she was tired of livin',
livin' with a ball and chain.
M-hm.

Well, my baby gone and left me,
says she won't be back again.
Well, my baby gone and left me,
says she won't be back again.
And I just can't let her go,
my memory's like a ball and chain.
Yes, it is!
Ball and chain.

Well, my baby left this mornin',
says she won't be back again.
My baby left this mornin',
says she won't be back again.
But I tell you somethin',
my heart's like a ball and chain.

Well, I found my babe this mornin',
she won't laugh at me no more.
Found my baby there this mornin',
she won't laugh at me no more again.
And I shot her with my pistol,
now I wear a ball and chain.
Yeah, ball and chain.

Ball and chain.
Ball and chain.
Ball and chain.

World Keep Turnin' Round
(Gary Moore)

Ain't got no brains,
ain't got no looks.
Surround yourself with a bunch of crooks.
Everyone is watchin',
see what trick you'll pull this time.
That's right.

You ain't got no sense
of what's goin' on.
You ain't got no answers,
except what's wrong.
Get yourself elected
doin' every trick in the book.
No shit.

Who ever said you had to win your votes?
You've got morality right down the throat.
Who ever said you need the law on your side,
when your money is a million miles wide?

But the world keep on turnin' round,
to tell you that you're goin' down.
Yeah, the world keep on turnin' round,
to tell you that you're goin' down, down, down, down, down.

You wonder why
so many hate.
You never listen,
but you better anticipate.
You might have won the battle,
but the war is far from over yet.
That's right.

So in the meantime
just do your best.
Goin' 'round the world
clearin' up your daddy's mess.
But you ain't foolin' no one,
except the folks in your back yard.
Better believe it.

Who ever told you you could be the king?
Who ever said that you knew anythin'?
What makes you think that you have got the right
to turn the rainbows into black and white?

But the world keep on turnin' round,
takes more than you to bring it down.
Yeah, the world keep on turnin' round,
the only way you're goin' is down, down, down, down, down.

Yeah.

The world keep on turnin' round,
to tell you that you're goin' down.
The world keep on turnin' round,
to tell you that you're goin' down, down, down, down, down.

World keep on turnin' round,
takes more than you to bring it down.
Yeah, the world keep on turnin' round,
to tell you that you're goin' down, down, down, down, down.

The world keep turnin'.
The world keep turnin'.
The world keep turnin'.
the only way you're goin' is down, down, down, down, down,
down, down, down, down, down.
down, down, down, down.

Who Knows (What Tomorrow May Bring)?
(Gary Moore)

Gonna put some distance
between me and the bad times.
There'll be no resistance,
say goodbye to the sad times.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Who knows what's around every corner?
Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Gonna find the reason
to move on from the sad times.
Gonna come a season,
bring an end to the bad times.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Who knows what's around every corner?
Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Maybe the dreams of yesterday,
the broken dreams of yesterday.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Who knows what's around every corner?
Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Maybe the dreams of yesterday,
the broken dreams of yesterday.
Maybe the dreams of yesterday.
