1. *Lowdown (Unplugged)

(Boz Scaggs / David Paich)

Your baby's out runnin round
Hanging with the crowd
Dragging your business in the street and talking out loud
Saying you bought her this and that
And how much you done spent
I swear she must believe it's all heaven sent
Hey boy you better bring the woman around
To the sad old truth the dirty lowdown

You know I wonder who taught her how to talk like that boy
Who gave her that big idea yeah

Nothin you can't handle nothin you ain't got
Put your money on the table and drive it off the lot
Turn on that old lovelight turn a maybe to yes
Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess yeah
You better get on back to town
To the sad sad truth the dirty lowdown

Who put those ideas in her head now
You know I'm thinking about you boy.. oh boy

Come on back down to earth son
Dig the low low low low lowdown

You ain't got to be so bad aint got to be so cold
This dog eat dog existence sure is gettin old
You got to have a Jones for this and a Jones for that
This runnin with the Joneses' boy
Just ain't where it's at.. no

You better on come back around
Face the sad sad truth
The dirty lowdown down

Yes I wonder who put those ideas in her head now
You know I'm still thinking about you boy...mmm hmmm...well

Ooooh I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
Oh look out for that lowdown
Oh that dirty dirty dirty lowdown
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
Who got her thinking like that
What about that dirt on your face boy.. boy.. boy.. boy
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who
We're talking low low low lowdown down
I wonder wonder wonder wonder who

Don't you know


2. *Some Things Happen

(Boz Scaggs / Marcus Miller)

You best let some things happen
On their own
You'd better leave them alone
Cause when they happen naturally
Its like standing in the rain
You're gonna get wet
Its gonna get all over you
So when it happens like that
Don't bother asking where its from
You just take it as it comes

It was a great year for a fall
And it happened like that
With no direction there or give
Didn't matter much at all
Bells didn't ring
There was nothing calling me out there
Yet I was kinda grooving like that
Until it hit me like a shot
You're part of everything I've got

I felt the sun coming through
And it happened to be you
I had to look away to see
That you happened to be happening to me

Its that sensation when you're falling
You stop in time
And in that moment you will hear
Just a matter of fact
And its gonna get wet
Gonna get all over you
Sometimes it happens like that
Now don't be asking where its from
You just take it as it comes

I felt the sun coming through
And it happened to be you
I had to look away to see
That you happened to be happening to me

Bells didn't ring
There was nothing calling me out there
Yet I was kinda grooving like that
Until it hit me like a shot
You're part of everything I've got

I felt the sun coming through
And it happened to be you
I had to look away to see
That you happened to be happening to me

I felt the sun coming through
And it happened to be you
I had to look away to see
That you happened to be happening to me


3. *Just Go

(Boz Scaggs)

Take what you need
Just leave me a key and go
I'm all out of answers
Except where I don't know

This hanging around
Is dragging us down you know
Everything changes
I guess we let it go

Take care of yourself
We'll learn to live again
Wary but wiser in the end
Perhaps.. oh well

Just go
I'm all out of answers
But yes the answers no

Here comes old chaos
Now there's a friend
And he'll have us laughing in the end
But crying now

Just Go
Everything changes
Oh yes well there you go.. there you go


4. *Love T.K.O.

(Cecil Womack / Linda Womack / Gip Noble)

Looking back over my years
I guess I've shed some tears
Told myself time and again
This time I'm gonna win
But another fight things ain't right
And I'm losing again
Takes a fool to lose twice
And start all over again

Think I'd better let it go
Cause it looks like another love TKO..oh yeah
Said I'd better let it go
Because it looks like another love TKO..mmmm

I tried to take control of my love
Love took control of me
See you lose all thought and sense of time
You have a change of mind
Takin' the bumps and the bruises
And all the things of a two-time loser
See I try to hold on but my faith is gone
It's another sad song

So I'd better let it go
Cause it looks like another love TKO.. mmmm
Said I'd better let it go.. na..na na na
Cause it looks like another love TKO.. mmmm

You got me going in circles.. aha
Can't get my feet back on the ground.. oh..oh

I tried to take control of my love
Love took control of me
See you lose all thought all sense of time
You get a change of mind
Takin the bumps and the bruises
And all the things of a two-time loser
And I try to hold on but my faith has gone
It's another sad song

Said I'd better let it go now
Cause it looks like another love TKO.. mmmmm
Better let it go
Because it looks like another love TKO.. mmmmm

Let it go... TKO
Mmmmm....yeah....
Got to let it go now
Cause it looks like another love TKO


5. *Fade Into Light

(Boz Scaggs)

I see your breath
Your words in frozen space tonight
I hear a distant bell and you appear
Like some ancient one I'd never really seen

And there's a light falling from your hair
A photograph I thought I'd lost somewhere
You're all of this to me my dream
And a universe of you I've never seen

And now it seems
Not long ago
I was emptiness
And you arose
And as the day
Fades to night
May we ever love
Fade into light

I feel the stillness of your eyes
And shadows fall away
The promise of a spring is waiting there
Underneath it all.. underneath it all

The sky is crying heavens raining tears
The flood of sorrow runs a million years
But across this universe or just next to me
You are calling

And now it seems
Not long ago
I was emptiness
And you arose
And as the day
Fades to night
May we ever love
Fade into light

And as the day
Fades to night
May we ever love
Fade into light


6. *Harbor Lights

(Boz Scaggs)

Son of a Tokyo Rose
I was bound to wander from home
Stranger to whatever I'd awaken to

Spun the wheel took a shot in the dark
One way ticket and a runaway heart
A sailors dream came true the night I dreamed of you

Through the neon doorways
Down the stoney streets I fell
All hands high side all eyes a wreck I followed

Sailing shadows reds and blues
Curtains drawn but I saw through
The window to your soul and I found you

Whoah oh oh oh
The harbor lights of Venus
Shining through the breeze
That brings me back
To you my love
To you my love
To you my love

My eyes must be betrayin'
But that lonesome jukebox playin'
Somethin' 'bout the harbor lights is callin' me

Back to some Jamaican bay
Doesn't seem so far away
Keep the change but I'll repay these memories

Dawn came in this morning
Like some old junked out melody
The words she spoke as we awoke still haunt me
"What you feel too may reveal you
Let me steal you for my life"

Whoah oh oh oh
The harbor lights are of Venus
Shining through the breeze
That brings me back
To you my love
To you my love
To you my love

Whoah oh oh oh
The harbor lights of Venus
Shining through the breeze
That brings me back
To you my love
To you my love
To you my love


7. *Lost It

(Boz Scaggs)

Another day another mountain
Whose to say they never move
Cause we moved one after another
Till there was nothing left to prove

And then we turned around and tossed it
After all that we'd been through
And when I look at what it cost us
I guess it's time I face the truth

Maybe I lost it
Yeah lost it
When I lost you

The night we climbed above the ruins
The gypsy sang those ancient Spanish blues
I saw a man awake but still dreaming
I saw myself in love with you

I walk around
I think about it
And all the things that we went through
To tell you the truth

Maybe I lost it
Yeah lost it
When I lost you
I had it in the palm of my hand
And maybe I lost it
Yeah lost it.. yeah

I walk around
I think about it
And all the things that we've been through.. well
To tell you the truth
Maybe I lost it
Mmmmmmmm

I had it in the palm of my hand
And maybe I lost it
I lost it
When I lost you

I had it in the palm of my hand
And maybe I lost it
Yeah I lost it
When I lost you

I had it.. had it.. I had it
Oh I had it yeah
When I lost you

I had it in the palm of my hand
And baby I lost it
I lost it when I lost you
I had it.. had it.. had it..
Oh I had it...


8. *Time

(Boz Scaggs)

Somebody ought to have told me
Told me you couldn't be true
Somebody ought to have told me now
But that wouldn't be like you

But no one's got to tell me
After all you put me through
You dropped me like a habit
Of which you had a few

Your scent is on the glass tonight
Swirling in the wine
Scrambling the back of my brain
The irony sublime

It's warm bouquet and pungent flame
Light this ancient street
The avenue of no name
I'll fall into its beat

Nobody loved like you

Time
Won't you let me be
After all that we've been through
I talk to myself cause I aint got nobody else
Nobody else but you

I've walked for miles
I've walked a long time
To get to the place that I've got to yeah
There's nothing left and nobody nobody
Nobody left but you you

Time
Please set me free
Why couldn't you be true
I walk that walk yeah
I talk that talk
But there's nobody left but you you

Time
Won't you let me be
After all that we've been through
I talk to myself cause I aint got nobody else
Nobody left but you you

Why couldn't you be true

Nobody left but you


9. *Sierra

(Boz Scaggs)

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
Don't bother trying to find him
Way up in the icy air

Oh you played with his heartstrings
And you played without a care
But not up in the High Sierra
You won't play his heart out there

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

There he's got a bird to give him warning
And he's got a lookout too
The beauty of the High Sierra
And she's looking out for you

The angels lay their clouds cross his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings the others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
He's up in the High Sierra
But don't bother looking there


10. *We're All Alone

(Boz Scaggs)

Outside the rain begins
And it may never end
So cry no more
On the shore a dream
Will take us out to sea
Forever more
Forever more

Close your eyes ami
And you can be with me
Beneath the waves
Through the caves of hours
Long forgotten now
We're all alone
We're all alone

Close the window calm the light
And it will be all right
No need to bother now
Let it out let it all begin
Learn how to pretend

Once a storys told
It can't help but grow old
Roses do lovers too
So cast your seasons to the wind
And hold me dear
Oh hold me dear

Close the window calm the light
And it will be all right
No need to bother now
Let it out let it all begin

Throw it to the wind my love
Hold me dear

Throw it to the wind my love
We're all alone


11. *Simone

(Boz Scaggs / David Foster)

Darling lets stop this pretending
What more is there to say
But here's to your eyes
And my final demise
Yes Simone in you

I knew from the start
That an unwary heart
Was about to go out for a ride
Conquer the room
With a touch of perfume
Oh Simone its you

Oh Simone my heart is breaking
Yes my dear I think its going fast
You got to let me know
You got to let it show for it to last

Oh Simone to hold you
To dance you into the night
And on into the dawn
And on and on and on into the light

Make it romantic
Make it up I don't care
Look up and sigh
Even if its a lie
Oh Simone what can I do

What charm could sway me
Then burn and betray me
But thrill me the way that you do
Second to none
So completely undone
Oh Simone its you

Oh Simone my heart is breaking
Yes my dear I think its going fast
You got to let me know
You got to let it show for it to last

Oh Simone to hold you
To dance you into the night
And on into the dawn
And on and on and on into the light

Its time they told you
Its about time you knew
Straighten your gown
Throw a Manhattan down
Ah Simone what can you do

Why do you think you're fooling somebody
Do you think that I can't see
There's no doubt not a trace
Its all over your face
Oh Simone its me

Oh Simone my heart is breaking
Yes my dear I think its going fast
You got to let me know
You got to let it show for it to last

Oh Simone to hold you
To dance you in to the night
And on into the dawn
And on and on and on into the light


12. *I'll Be The One

(Boz Scaggs)

Tired of seeing some play thing
Acting like a toy
Tired of watching some fool
Trying to be your boy
And I don't like to be the one
Seeing you in tears
Standing in the shadows
Staring out at love again

But I'll be the one

I'm the one reminding you
That you've got a choice
I'm the one to let you know
That I hear your voice
Time and again
I catch you smiling from within
But standing empty hearted
Standing in the wings again

I'll be the one

Oh.. Oh I'll be the one

I'm the one reminding you
That you've got a choice
I'm the one to let you know
That I hear your voice
Time and again
I catch you smiling from within
Standing empty hearted
Standing in the wings again

I'll be the one

I can't be the one to catch you
Every time you fall
I ain't gonna be the answer
Every time you call
But babe I'm gonna to be the one
The one to see you through it all

Oh.. Oh I'll be the one

I'll be the one to get you home
When all the rest have gone away

Oooh hooo I'll be the one
