Cold Day In Hell
(Gary Moore)

So many times you tried to take the best of me.
So many times, now you're gonna take the rest of me.
Better look at what you're doing before it's too late.
It's a fine line you're treadin' between love and hate.
There'll be a cold day in hell
before I'm coming back to you.

So many times you tried to play a dead end game.
Yes, you did.
I tried to tell you, but you'd never wanna take the blame.
Now you've pushed me to the limit, and I can't take no more.
You'd better take one last look before I'm out the door.
There'll be a cold day in hell
before I'm coming back to you.

You never listened when I told you
that you were way out of line.
Too busy talkin' to listen,
accusing me of telling lies.

So many times you tried to get the best of me.
Yes, you did.
So many times, but now you're gonna take the rest of me.
Well, it's too late for sorry and it's too late for tears.
Better take one last look before I disappear.
There'll be a cold day in hell
before I'm coming back to you.

There'll be a cold day in hell
before I'm coming back to you.
There'll be a cold day in hell
before I'm coming back to you.
Yeah!

(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(Gonna be a cold day in hell)

(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(Gonna be a cold day in hell)
(It's gonna be a cold, cold day in hell)

Don't You Lie To Me (I Get Evil)
(Hudson Whittaker)

There's two kinds of people that I just can't stand,
a cold-hearted woman and a lyin' man.
So don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Because it makes me mad, and I get evil as a man can be.
Yes, I do.

Told me that you loved me long time ago.
The man that you had, you don't want him no more.
Don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Because it makes me mad, and I get evil as a man can be.
Yes, I do.

Well, you told me that you loved me long time ago.
The man that you had, you don't want him no more.
Don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Because it makes me mad, and I get evil as a man can be.
I'm gonna tell you.

Don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Don't you lie to me.
Because it makes me mad, and I get evil as a man can be.
Yes, I do.

Evil as a man can be.

Story Of The Blues
(Gary Moore)

My baby she left me, my baby she's gone.
My sweet little angel has spread her wings and flown.
Can't think of a reason for going on.
From this day I will play the blues.

She said it was over, this time it's the end.
Bad luck and trouble gonna be my only friend.
I still can't believe it, after all we've been through.
Everyday I will play the blues.

Everybody knows what the blues is all about.
It's a pain you can't live with.
It's a woman you can't live without.
She came from Chicago.
She read me the news.
In the headlines was a story of the blues.

They say a broken heart can always mend.
Time is the healer and sadness will end.
But I've done so much crying, when will I laugh again?
Till that day I will play the blues.

Everybody knows what the blues is all about.
It's a pain you can't live with.
It's a woman you can't live without.
Could have cried me a river
when they told me the news.
On that day was a story of the blues.

Since I Met You Baby
(Gary Moore)

I used to wake up in the morning with an aching head.
I couldn't remember anything I'd said.
My friends told me I was getting out of line.
If it wasn't for you baby, I'd be doing time.

Since I met you baby,
you've made a new man of me.
Since I met you baby,
I'm happy as a man could be.
Yes, I am.

I used to think I was better than the rest.
Ain't no doubt about it, I was no second best.
Didn't seem to matter what was right or what was wrong.
I did some crazy things before you came along.

Since I met you baby,
you've made a new man of me.
Since I met you baby,
I'm happy as a man could be.
Yes, I am.

Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby,
I'm happy as a man could be.
One more time!

Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Since I met you baby.
Well, since I met you baby,
I'm happy as a man could be.
Yes, I am.

Happy as a man can be.
You tell 'em Gary!
Yeah!

Separate Ways
(Gary Moore)

What is it that you want from me?
I really wish I knew.
I try so hard to do my best,
but it's not good enough for you.
Over and over again
we will make the same mistakes.
Over and over again
there's a feelin' I just can't shake.

Is it time to go our separate ways?
Is it time to go our separate ways?

You know I need your love so bad.
Can't you see what you do to me?
I try so hard to understand,
but the truth's never plain to see.

Is it time to go our separate ways?
Is it time to go our separate ways?

Time after time we will try to understand.
I don't know where we went wrong,
but there's no use in holdin' on.

Over and over again
we will make the same mistakes.
Over and over again
and it's more than a man can take.

Is it time to go our separate ways?
Is it time to go our separate ways?

Is it time to go our separate ways?
Is it time to go our separate ways?

Only Fool In Town
(Gary Moore)

She'll tear you up.
She'll bring you down.
She'll leave your heart in the lost and found.
She's just waitin', waitin' till the sun goes down.
Take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.

She'll make you angry.
She'll make you sad.
She'll find a way to make the good times bad.
She's a woman that kind of likes to fool around.
Take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.
No.

There's something about that woman,
she tries to drag a good man down.
Something about that woman.
Take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.

No, you're not!
Come on!
Yeah!

There's something about that woman,
she tries to drag a good man down.

She's just waitin', she's waitin' till the sun goes down.
Yeah!
Take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.

You can take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.
No, you're not!
I said, take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.
Take it from me, you're not the only fool in town.
Yeah!

Key To Love
(John Mayall)

I never realized that you were in pain.
Wanna help you honey, let me see you again.
Hurts my soul baby, when I find you're feeling rough, yeah.
Life is so bad baby,
when do I find the key to love?

The smile on your face wipe away those tears.
Life is gonna get better as you live through those years.
Hurts my soul baby, when I find you're feeling rough, ooh.
Life is so bad baby,

Somewhere in this world, the one you're waiting for,

Jumpin' At Shadows
(D. Bennett)

What can you say?
There isn't much to tell.
I'm going downhill
and I blame myself.
I've been jumpin' at shadows,
thinking 'bout my life.

Everybody points their hand at me.
I know I'm just a picture
of what I should've been.
I've been jumpin' at shadows,
thinking 'bout my life.

What can you say?
There isn't much to tell.
I'm going downhill
and I blame myself.
I've been jumpin' at shadows,
thinking 'bout my life.

The Blues Is Alright
(Milton Campbell)

Want you to hear me when I say
that the blues is back,
and it's here to stay.

I wanna tell you a story,
a story all about the blues.
I want you to listen to me baby,
while I sing it to you.
Want you to hear me when I say
that the blues is back,
and it's here to stay.

I used to have me somebody,
she mean't the whole world to me.
But she left me for someone else,
left my heart in misery.
Yes, she did!
But I knew the day she left me
that the blues was gonna be a part of me.
Yes, it was.

Since you left me with the blues,
it was the last thing I thought I could use.
But I'm glad that you left me,
left me with the blues.
If you hadn't given me the blues,
I wouldn't find myself someone sweet as you.

And I'm gonna tell you.
I said hey, hey, the blues is allright.
Hey, hey, the blues is allright.
I said hey, hey, the blues is allright.
Hey, hey, the blues is allright.
Allright (allright),

Here we go Albert!

The Hurt Inside
(Gary Moore)

You wrestle with your conscience
to free your better self.
But did you think for one moment
you could be someone else?

Between a rock and a hard place,
is where you seem to be.
You've been caught in a trap
between the devil and the deep blue sea.

All those nights so lonely,
all the tears that you cry.
You can't hide
from the hurt inside.
(the hurt inside).

You're in a situation,
pray this time it will pass.
But it feels like you're walkin'
over miles and miles of broken glass.

Painted into a corner
where the sun never shines.
Somebody's turned on the spotlight,
you forgot to learn your lines.

In the place you once called your heart
there's a wound that's open wide.
You can't hide
from the hurt inside.
(the hurt inside).

When you're thinking 'bout the hard times
everyone's been through.
But it won't make no difference,
seeing things the way you do.

In this blue condition
you must search for the light.
Don't believe them when they tell you,
you can't hold back the night.

Between a rock and a hard place,
is where you'll always be.
Caught in a trap
between the devil and the deep blue sea.

So many words unspoken.
So many times you never tried.
You can't hide
from the hurt inside.
(the hurt inside).

No, you can't hide
from the hurt inside.
(the hurt inside).
There's one thing you can't hide,
it's the hurt inside.
(the hurt inside).

Nothing's The Same
(Gary Moore)

Another time, another place.
The lonely streets where we embraced.
Then you would go without a trace.
Nothing's the same without you.

Another day goes passing by.
I sit alone and wonder why.
Sometimes it's hard, but I will try
to live my life without you.

You're in my heart, you're in my dreams.
You're everywhere or so it seems.
So many times I've heard that song.
Hold back the tears, pretend you're strong.

Another day goes slowly by.
I sit alone and wonder why.
I think of you, I start to cry.
Nothing's the same without you.

Another time, another place.
The sweetness of our last embrace.
What would I give to see your face.
Nothing's the same without you.

Nothing's the same,
nothing's the same,
nothing's the same without you.

All Time Low
(Gary Moore)

You've had your share of troubles.
Lord knows you've had your share of pain.
You've had your share of troubles.
Lord knows you've had your share of pain.

When it all comes down to you,
you're puttin' on a brave face.
But it just takes some bad luck
to put you in your place.
When there's no place to run to,
when there's no place to go,
you know you've had an all time low.
Oh.

You thought the hard times were behind you,
but boy were you ever wrong.
Those hard times been followin' you
ever since the day that you were born.

You've had your share of troubles.
Lord knows you've had your share of pain.

When it all comes down to you,
you're puttin' on a brave face.
But it just takes some bad luck
to put you in your place.
When there's no place to run to,
when there's no place to go,
you know you've had an all time low.
All time low, yeah.

You've had your share of troubles.
Lord knows, Lord knows you've had your share of pain.
You've had your share of troubles.
Lord knows, Lord knows you've had your share of pain.

When it all comes down to you,
you're puttin' on a brave face.
But it just takes some bad luck
