1. *Dinah Flo

(Boz Scaggs)

Seems so long you've been gone
I've been singing such a sad sad song
I'm glad I found you
Glad my worlds around you

Dinah I've been lonely for you
Never knew how I cared for you
Glad you're back
Take you back in my arms

Dinah Flo love you so
Take me down way down slow
My Dinah Flo
Love you more each day

I'll be long I'll be true
But I can't say what Dinah might do
I'm glad she's back
Take her back in my arms

Dinah Flo don't let go
Take me down girl nice and slow
Dinah Flo
Love you more each day

Oh my Dinah Flo come on lets go
Get that groove down way down slow
Dinah Flo
Love you more each day

Oh my Dinah Flo don't let go
Take me down girl nice and slow
My Dinah Flo
Love you more each day hey hey

Dinah Flo love you so

Love you more ever so

Dinah Flo love you more each day


2. *Slowly In The West

(D. Brown)

There was nobody left
Just a burnout nothing had been done
It was hard to believe
We had started out that morning having fun

But with people always running into walls
Like they didn't even see them there at all
Got so tangled
Thanks again for your moonlight generousness
Left me strangling
Slowly in the west

Don't worry mama your sweet daughter
Who lived inside this mess
Though I tried to protect her
Cool her and ease her restlessness

Grew so used to the sound of her alarm
Didn't mean to do her any harm
Got so tangled
Please forgive me for my constant uselessness
Got me strangled
Slowly in the west

Let me loose let me hear the sound of someone
Through this haze
Take me there I don't care anywhere it's all the same

So honey don't hold your breath
You may never get to feel this way again
Who was crying when she left
Lying to you now about the pain
Our baby can't be gotten back no
It was an end to her madness I've been told

Got so tangled
Please just show me to the ending
Forget the rest
Got me strangled
Slowly in the west


3. *Full Lock Power Slide

(Boz Scaggs)

She's so tired of this
So tired of that
Sometimes I don't see why
She'd go out of her way
To mess up your day
So what's the use in trying

To get along with her
It's all wrong for her
What more can you do
She just wants to fight
She likes to keep you uptight
And its just too bad for you

But the only thing is
She can take care of business
Like no woman you've ever seen
Then without thinking twice
She can make it so nice
Like no place that you've ever been

She got the smile
She got the pretty face
She keeps her pretty things on my mind
She got the moves
She got the grooves
She got the.. moves.. yeah..yeah..yeah

Oh the pains are here
The pains are there
She may not see tomorrow
She just can't go on
She's as good as gone
And her love may die of sorrow

But the only thing is
She can take care of business
Like no woman you've ever seen
Then without thinking twice
She can make it so nice
Like no place that you've ever been

She got the smile
She got the pretty face
She keeps the pretty things on my mind
She got the moves
She got the grooves
She got the moves.. yeah.. yeah.. yeah


4. *Old Time Lovin'

(A. Green)

Give me that old - time - old time lovin'
Give me that old - time - old time lovin' yeah

It was good enough - for dear old mother and father
That's how I know - that it's alight for me

What I need is that good old - time - old time lovin' yeah
It's got to be rockin' - reelin' - yeah yeah

Music will make you make you - make you move your feet yeah
Keep tryin to love you baby - and you're out in the street

But what I need is that good old - time - good old time lovin' yeah
It's got to be rockin' yeah and reeling

Yeah and the only thing I want you to do is come on home - come on home
Yeah don't let your friends turn your back on me baby

Come on old - time - old time lovin yeah
Waitin' for a better day
Waitin' for another day
Come on home


5. *Might Have To Cry

(Boz Scaggs)

Taxis lights pull out of sight
Around the lane and into the night
Goodbye this time may be the last

Might have to cry might have to lie
Might have to die a little

Evening song didn't last long
Dreamed I was right sussed I was wrong
So I make my way through an empty day

Might have to cry might have to lie
Might have to die a little... this time

Never believed she would leave
I forgot about last time
When she walked out this morning
I went out of my mind

I'll try to smile
Pretend it never happened
Leave 'em slow but leave 'em laughing
I'll try to fight down to the last

Might have to cry might have to lie
Might have to die a little... this time

Some people live and learn
Never was lucky that way
Wanted so hard to believe her

But other rains will come
And wash it all away
Other loves will come and go
You must believe me when I say
Didn't want it that way

I'll try to smile
Pretend it never happened
Leave 'em slow but leave 'em laughing
Goodbye this time may be the last

Might have to cry
Might have to lie
Might have to die a little

Might have to cry
Did you ever have to lie
Did you ever have to die a little
Whoa whoa did you ever have to cry
You know you have to lie
You know you gotta die just a little... a little
You know you have to die whoa you gotta cry
Whoa you gotta die


6. *Hello My Lover

(A.Toussaint / N.Neville)

Hello my lover wherever you are
I've been a fool my dear
A fool by far
But I've grown up in my mind
I've played the game of love and lost
And now I'm crying
Aha Aha oh yeah

If you come back my dear
There'll be some changes made
I will alter myself in every way
I'm gonna start a brand new policy
I'm gonna teach you a lesson in loveology
Hmmm hmmm mmm mmm oh yeah

Yes I will
Yes I will
You know I will

I'm gonna try my best do what is right
I'm gonna bewitch you my dear
Day and night
I'm gonna teach a brand new policy
I'm gonna teach you a lesson in loveology
Hmmm Hmmm oh yeah

Yes I will
Yes I will
You know I will

Yes I will
Yes I will
You know I will

Yes I will
Yes I will
You know I will


7. *Freedom For The Stallion

(Allen Toussaint)

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and her colt
Freedom for the baby child
Who has not grown old enough to vote
Lord have mercy what you gonna do
About the people who are praying to you
They got men making laws that destroy other men
They make money God it's a doggone sin
Oh Lord you got to help us find a way

Big ships sailing
Slaves all chained and bound
Headed for a brand new land
That some cat says he up and found
Lord have mercy what you gonna do
About the people who are praying to you
They got men making laws that destroy other men
To make money God it's a doggone sin
Oh Lord you got to help us find a way.. yeah

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and her colt
Freedom for the baby child
Who has not grown old enough to vote
Lord have mercy what you gonna do
About the people who are praying to you
You know if I could look inside your mind
I'd bring back all the truth I find
Oh Lord you gotta help us find a way

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and her colt
Freedom for the baby child
Who has not grown old enough to vote


8. *He's A Fool For You

(Boz Scaggs)

Day after day
He goes out of his way
Cos he knows you're gonna be there
And if he doesn't say too much
At least he keeps in touch to show his care

And it ain't like he never loved before
And it ain't like he'll never love no more
Just some day maybe he'll find some way baby
To turn you around

He may just be right
Why is he so in love with you
Why can't he find something better to do

But it ain't what he loves you for
No it ain't that you got so much more
It's just that sometimes someone
Got to play the dumb one to get along
And you may just get along

My my my my
He's a fool for you
No one else will do

Laugh and be gay ooh
You look so nice that way
You know you'll get a smile
Wear a ribbon in your hair
And he'll notice that it's there
It's just his style

You just state your case and sing the song
And you take it as it comes along
Who knows some day maybe
You'll take a look out baby and find you care

And I know you'll be there hey hey
My my my my
He's a fool for you
No one else will do

My my my my
He's a fool for you
No one else will do


9. *We're Gonna Roll

(Boz Scaggs)

Out last night and the night before
But I ain't set foot outside my door
In my neighborhood you can come on in
Everyone would be there if they ever been

Find out where they came from
Found out where they went
Life these days ain't no accident
Grab em off the corner get em on the phone
Get em all together and bring em all along

We're gonna roll onto the break of day
We're gonna roll all through the month of May
We're gonna roll
We're gonna roll it all up
And then we'll roll it all away

You can put your things off
I don't mind
Well take me off
Takes all kinds
Feeling's gonna get you
Right down to your soul
Let it all out let the good times roll

Mad mans a comin here
He's bringing the sky
He always goes God knows why
Break out the glasses pay up the rent
This boy is heaven sent

We're gonna roll onto the break of day
We're gonna roll all through the month of May
We're gonna roll
We're gonna roll it all up
And then we'll roll it all away


10. *My Time

(Boz Scaggs)

Far away
I may just stay away
Like some folks holiday
That's my time

On any other day
May come a Saturday
Or might just stay this way
It's my time

Moments come and go
Like the winds blow
Empty like a fool
I'm laying cool anyway

Anyway
Just have to do today
Like some folks holiday
It's my time

Hmmm hmmm

It's my time
