1. BURN

The sky is red, I don't understand,
Past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire.
The woman's flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm.
She said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return."
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand,
Past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"


2. YOU FOOL NO ONE (INTERPOLATING ITCHY FINGERS)

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So hard to see you are taking your chances with me.
If I find you with some other man
You know what I'm gonna do.
Better run if you see me comin', ah.

Soon you will fall, making mistakes like before.
When you tell me lies I can see by the look in your eyes.
If you think you're gonna take me for granted,
Chasin' round with all you see,
Gonna make you live to regret it, ah.

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So clear to see you've had all your chances with me.
You thought that you could take me for granted
But I couldn't take it no more.
Better run when you see me comin, ah.


3. LOVE CHILD

You can walk thro' fire,
Make the north wind blow
Squeeze 'n' tease me honey
When you shake your body
You move my soul...
Let me be your lover
Won't you let me be your child
Take me through your universe
Y'know that when you smile
You drive me wild...

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Always teasin' me

You can ride your pony
Day dream in Fairy Tales
All I know, is I need more,
When I see you dance the seven veils...


4. SAIL AWAY

If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
With no wind to fill your sail,
The future, your horizon,
It's like searchin' for the holy grail.
You feel there's no tomorrow
As you look into the water below.
It's only your reflection
And you still ain't got no place to go.

Time will show,
When, i don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-ye-yeah.

Oh, woman, i keep returnin
To sing the same old song.
The story's been told, now i'm gettin' old.
Tell me,where do i belong?
Feel like i'm goin' to surrender,
Nard times i've had enough.
If i could find a place to hide my face,
I believe, i could get back up.

Time will show,
When, i don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But i'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But i'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But i'll be there someday yeah yeah yeah yea-yea-yeah Yeah yeah yeah.


5. THE GYPSY

Tell me gypsy can you see me
In your crystal ball
I'm asking you what can I do
My back's against the wall
And I can't hold on much longer
So I've come to you my friend
For now my life seems at an end

I came to see you once before
One hundred years ago
You took my hand and broke the spell
That should have let me go
But my years have gone so slowly
So I'm here again my friend
For now my life is at an end


6. LADY DOUBLE DEALER

Get outta my way
I'm gettin' tired of you
There ain't no chance
Doin' what you wanna do
I've been down down down down
Got to get my feet back on the ground

Lady double dealer
Get outta my way
Lady double dealer
You got nothing to say

I ain't satisfied
Dealin' with second hand goods
You wanted somethin' for nothin'
Taking everything you could
You been 'round - I got the news
But you ain't waitin' 'round for me to lose

Lady double dealer
Get outta my way
Lady double dealer
You got nothing to say
I gave love to you
Did what you wanted me to
But all you did was bring me down
So I just had to try

Try to reason why
You took advantage of my love

Two timin' woman
Tryin' to take me for a ride
You're a hard lover honey
But you sure don't keep me satisfied
I wanna be there
To try to make you see
There ain't no woman gonna make a fool outta me


7. MISTREATED

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind.


8. HOLY MAN

Called to Madonna
To give me a line
She said boy what have you done
Passing your time with a holy man
Talking about the moon and sun
But I can't tell the difference
Between the fool and wise
Show me a river to follow
Away from all these lies

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been picking up my bones too long
Won't you understand

Called to the captain
To put me ashore
For it looked like no man's land
Is this the way to follow
I cried as I shook his hand
He told me had no answer
He didn't really hold the key
I am a simple man
Was all he said to me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on the road so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

Heard my mother crying
She was calling out my name
Whisper in the dark night
Saying who's to blame
The hour glass keeps turning
With not enought sand to see
I am a holy man
So don't you bother me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been pickin' up my bones too long
Won't you understand
I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand?


9. MIGHT JUST TAKE YOUR LIFE

I got more than i asked for,
There ain't nothin' i need.
I took all till i had more,
I'm always takin' the lead.

Old man shakin' dice down on the street,
Try'n to make a livin' somehow
But i'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
And i'm gettin' ready right now.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

I've been called by many names
And all of them are bad.
I can take it all the same,
It's all i've ever had.

I've got somethin' that you can't get
But one thing you can see:
Gettin' there ain't easy
But it sure was hard for me.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

Every time i take a look
There's someone close behind.
They never used to make a pass,
The things that crossed their minds.

Now they tell me that it's all right
And they want to be my friend.
They're ridin' on my back.
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

Got more than i asked for,
Got more than i need.
Got more than i asked for,
Got more than i need.
Got more than i asked for,
Got more than i need.


10. YOU KEEP ON MOVING

You keep on moving
Far away, far away
You keep on moving
Far away, far away
Everyday, wheels are turning
And the cry... still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking,
The day has just begun.
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun.
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread...


11. SOLDIER OF FORTUNE

I have often told you stories about the way
I lived the life of a drifter waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand and sing you songs
And may be you would say
Come lay with me and love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going round
Guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune.

Many times I've been a traveller
I looked for something new
In days of old when nights were cold
I wandered without you
Those days I thought my eyes
Had seen you standing near
Though blindness is confusing
It shows that you're not here.

Now I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going round
Guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune

Yes, I can hear the sound
0f a windmill going round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune.
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune


12. LAY DOWN, STAY DOWN

I don't care if my lady's gone
As long as you give me just what i want.
I've been losin' my direction,
Got to find a new connection.

You have wasted the love i tasted,
Now i'm really gettin' hungry more and more.
Been a long time, had a bad sign.
Tell me what am i fighting for?

Let me know you feel it,
You know i really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing i really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down.

Lookin' for trouble, i guess that's right.
When i was young i was taught to fight.
It's been long gone since i had known,
Now i'm headin' for some more.

Let me know you feel it,
You know i really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing i really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down.

Let me know you feel it,
You know i really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing i really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down.


13. STORMBRINGER

Comin' out of nowhere
Drivin' like rain
Stormbringer dance
On the thunder again
Dark cloud gathering
Breaking the day
No point running
'Cause it's coming your way

Ride the rainbow
Crack the sky
Stormbringer coming
Time to die
Got to keep running
Stormbringer coming
He's got nothing you need
He's gonna make you bleed

Rainbow shaker
On a stallion twister
Bareback rider
On the eye of the sky
Stormbringer coming down
Meaning to stay
Thunder and lightning
Heading your way

Ride the rainbow
Crack the sky
Stormbringer coming
Time to die
Got to keep running
Stormbringer coming
He's got nothing you need
He's gonna make you bleed

Coming out of nowhere
Drivin' like a-rain
Stormbringer dance
On the thunder again
Dark cloud gathering
Breaking the day
No point running
'Cause it's coming your way


BONUSTRACKS (DELUXE EDITION)


14. LADY LUCK

She was a juke-box dancer
A blue eyed gypsy queen
She always had an answer
For what she'd done
And where she'd been
A feathercane Lady Midnight
For all around to see
She spoke with words of wisdom
And this is what she said to me

Lady luck
C'mon give me what I want
Pull me up
Lady luck
If I see you again
I will call you my friend

I have always been a sinner
But then the lady came along
She stole my heart and turned me 'round
'Till I didn't know right from wrong
She whispered words of kindness
I'd never ever heard before
Golden words and silver tongue
Till I really couldn't take no more

Lady luck
C'mon give me what I want
Pull me up
Lady luck
If I see you again
I will call you my friend
C'mon shake me


15. COMIN' HOME

My mama showed me how to rock in the cradle,
But I learned how to roll along.
My papa said "son, gotta git some fun,
Cos when your old it ain't too good on your own"
Been so long, since you heard my song
Gonna pick up my guitar 'n' play
Felt so bad when I had to leave you
But I knew that I'd be back some day

So I'm comin' home
To give you more than you bargained for...
Comin' home
No mistake I'm gonna shiver 'n' shake...
Comin' home
Gonna rock 'n' roll an' give you my soul...
Comin' home
I got over the pain I'm comin' home again...

Groovin to American Bandstand,
B.B. onstage with 'Lucille',
The thrill is gone, but, it won't be for long
Cos you know I like to play how you feel
Now that we're back together
Gonna shiver 'n' shake all night
I just gotta say the music I play
Will sure enough make you feel alright

Tho I learned how to rock in the cradle
An' rollin' came so easy to me
All the years I travelled the world
Made it so clear to see
It's been so long since you heard my song
Gonna pick up my guitar 'n' play
Felt so bad when I had to leave you
But I knew that I'd be back some day

Comin' home
To give you more than you baragained for
Comin' home
No mistake I'm gonna shiver and shake
Comin' home
Gonna rock 'n' roll and give you my soul
Comin' home
I got over the pain I'm comin' home again
Comin' home
Shiver 'n' shakin' anticpatin'
Comin' home
The thrill is gone but it won't be for long
