Spider's Web 03:06
If you do it with me, we can laugh and fall over We need not get caught, in the spider's web You can spend most of your days, in my sweet company I'll make sure you get Heaven and Earth and a giddy time We need not get caught, in the spider's web For we are too young, our lives have just begun Should you decide to leave home, I will be leaving with you Let me be the ass, you hang your suitcase on We will collapse when we exhaust, kiss ourselves to sleep And when we sleep, the sky will be the only roof we have I'll make sure you get Heaven and Earth, and a giddy time We need not get caught, in the spider's web For we are too young, our lives have just begun I want you to run, run, run, run, run!

Without you 02:31
without You im too high to let this world go be i could never be happy unless i see you for I won’t smile til I have you in my arms for I could never be happy without you please don`t cry take that kerchief from your face you know it makes me sad when I see you that way for I won’t smile til I have you in my arms for I could never be happy without you

If you were a lady, and I were a man Would you still love me, would you understand And if I promised you the Heaven, would you promise me the world Would you be my sweetheart, would you be my girl Roll on summertime, in my heart you're always mine Roll on summertime, the season season, the sunshine of your love If we were to roam, on a desert island Would you fall for a native? or would you fall for him And if I promised you the Heaven, would you promise me the world Would you be my sweetheart, would you be my girl Roll on summertime, in my heart you're always mine Roll on summertime, the season season, the sunshine of your love

ragtime groove i used to wake up mornings with nothing to do a skinny dole walla all hungry and blue my flat was a pigsty i lived on rice playing street corners in the snow and ice but instead of getting wasted in the well of spare time i`d switch on the telly put the sound right down shut the curtains take the phone off the hook and get stuck into ragtime groove Ch/ stuck into ragtime groove stuck into ragtime groove when my heart`s anticipating with nothing to do i get stuck into ragtime groove on a battered old 6 string i would pluck away to the sound of wild willie or a cool blind blake broonzy grosman would keep me sane whilst stuck into ragtime groove Ch/ when on the road with the band i would sneak away to the dressing room and suss out some new shapes instead taking on fame`s trip to hell I`d learn another number by willie mctell and get stuck into ragtime blues Ch/ when i first went recording in the USA stayed in chataeu marmont the pool was great but instead of soaking up california`s heat waves i`d jump on the bus and go out to macabes & get Ch/ stuck into ragtime groove stuck into ragtime groove when my heart`s anticipating with nothing to do i get stuck into ragtime groove Ch/ ‘for round eyes ray burns’

Kathy 02:49
Kathy was more than a friend to me, changed my face when dour Caress my neck and fend for me, and only make love in the dark For she didn't mind my moods ya see, she say "ah thats just the way you've turned out' I would bathe her and tell her what light looked like Spin her tails till she yawned For a blind girl in a man's world, she was more! And the flowers were all that she longed to see The snow covered hills and the little calves Her face and my face in the rowing boat As we'd kiss and drift slowly to shore Yes kathy was more than a friend to me And it was 15 moons we were locked But now her poor chair gathers dust you see.. The Lord he took away his bright star But for a blind girl in a man's world, she was more! she was more!

I live In the east I live in the east I look to the west my mother she’s a singer in the air force band I live in a cabin with an evil man who’ll share with me nothing but hi scorn and his fist o’ please bring us a war to rip this cabin down to rip away the bond his tattooed arms to rip away the liquor and rip the call girls too but most of all the sight of this backyard I live in the east I wish to the west my mother she’s a singer in the air force band I wish that i could join her for these bruises hurt so bad take this tip from a helpless hungry (cannot be a lad must be a youth) o’ the gate it swings a manic for me there is no supper & there is no Christmas o’ here e’ is’a coming now a violently a’ clad I live in the east I look to the west my mother she’s a singer withthe air force band I wish that I could join her for these bruises hurt so bad take this tip from a helpless hungry lad
