1. I'M A FOOL FOR YOU

I fooled around just a little too long,
Caught me by surprise.
All I did was to sit right down,
Stare into your eyes.
So the world has passed you by,
And all that's not been said.
Saw you in my days and nights,
And everything ahead.

I'm a fool for you baby.
There ain't no end in sight.
Just a fool for you baby.
And I'll be your fool tonight.

Well I've been down this crazy road,
But not like this before.
Had the blues when I heard the news,
But I'm not worried no more.

I'm a fool for you baby.
There ain't no end in sight.
Just a fool for your baby.
And I'll be your fool tonight.

Fool for you baby.
Fool for you baby.

I fooled around just a little too long.
It caught me by surprise.
All I did was to sit right down,
Stare into your eyes.

I'm a fool for you baby.
There ain't no end in sight.
Just a fool for you baby.
And I'll be your fool tonight.

Well I'm a fool for you baby.
There ain't no end in sight.
Just a fool for you baby.
And I'll be your fool tonight.

I'm a fool for you baby.
There ain't no end in sight.
Just a fool for you baby.
And I'll be your fool tonight.




2. TURNIN' TO YOU

I've been chained like a fool,
Just listen to me.
'Cause I got a story to tell
That will help you to see.
Well I gave her all the lovin' I had,
She returned it to me,
She walked out with a laugh.

Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you
Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you.

Well I never knew that lovin'
Could be so fine.
Now that I know what it's like
On the other side.
Well she gave me a look with her eyes,
And I knew by that look I was in for a ride.

Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you
Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you.

Now I'm turnin' to you, you
Now I'm turnin' to you, you, you
Now I'm turnin' to you, you, you, you, Wooh
Now I'm turnin' to you, you, you.

I've been chained like a fool,
Just listen to me.
'Cause I got a story to tell
That will help you to see.
Well I gave her all the lovin' I had.
She returned it to me.
She walked out with a laugh.

Now I'm turnin' to you.
Now I'm turnin' .. to you
Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you

Now I'm turnin' to you
Now I'm turnin' ... to you
I can't wait to see love.
Now I'm turnin', turnin', turnin',
Turnin', turnin' to you.




3. TRAVELIN' MAN

A-don't you know that I'm leaving
I gotta catch the next train out.
I can't believe it.
Cause I'm a-already on my own.
A-Memphis town is the place I'm found.
There ain't no use in a-sticking around.
I got my pack on my back my friends,
And I'm heading on out again.

Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend.
I've got to travel across this land.
Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend.
A-Lord I'm on the move.

I told you girl I ain't staying tonight.
I got to leave while the getting is right.
I got the places to see, people to meet,
And I'm a-headin' on down the street.

A-when I get to old New York town,
A-pretty ladies there to show me around.
I'll take my money, all I can spend,
And I'm headin' on out again.

Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend.
I've got to travel across this land.
Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend,
Lord keep a-travelin' on.

Well tomorrow is coming,
And I'll be on the road again.
A-pushin' and huffin'
While trying to get ahead.
I think I'm getting ready and hot.
I know it's time for a-me to stop.
I need to back another whiskey shot,
Lord, keep a-travelin' on.

Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend.
I've got to travel across this land.
Cause I'm a, a-travelin' man my friend.
A-Lord can't you see I got to keep on,
Travelin' on.
Lord keep travelin' on.




4. I BEEN A MOVER

Can't you find the next plane down here
I'll see you in the afternoon
Well, everybody's got the right to live
But I feel like I've been a fool
Come on, steal away
I feel like it's time to say
No more giv'n' my life's worth livin'
I'll see you another day

Well, I been a mover
I got to find a life to live
Well, I been a mover
Got to keep lookin'
I'm on my way again.

Well, I've seen the world in its course
And I been waiting just to hear you say
Ev'rybody's try'n to lead your life
But no one can see the way.
Come on, we're here to stay
Got to find a life away
If you want it, you can get it
You gotta have the nerve to say:

Well, I been a mover
I got to find a life to live
Well, I been a mover
Got to keep lookin'
I'm on my way again.

I been a mover,
I don't need no one to slow me down
Well, I been a mover,
I just gotta keep movin, a movin' around
I been a mover,
I don't need no one to slow me down,
Well, I been a mover,
I just gotta keep movin, a movin' around
Well, I been a mover,
I just gotta keep movin', gotta keep movin' around
I been a mover, I been a mover,
Well, I been a mover, I been a mover




5. WHAT CAN I DO?

Well I don't know why I feel the way that I do
Through all these years, but I still think of you
You're in my dreams,
I have seen the life we should have had
But I'm so glad that the truth is out at last

What can I do with a love like this in my heart?
So what can I do, It's tearin' me apart
So what can I do, What can I do

Why can't you see that it's you I've always loved?
I travelled far with mem'ries I'm thinkin' of
Through all of this time thought my love would have passed
But I know now that our love was meant to last

What can I do with a love like this in my heart?
What can I do Babe, it's tearin' me apart?

Oh it's been a while since we been alone
And I know it's sad but I'd die for your love

I close my eyes and I see you by my side,
My hopes and dreams of our love is my desire
I want you to know that this love is still alive
So I held on to a lie I had to try

What can I do with a love like this in my heart?
So what can I do, It's tearin' me apart
So what can I do, What can I do




6. WHO'S BEEN MESSIN'

I've never seen a woman like you
Always on the run.
I called and you weren't there,
You never stay at home.
Baby, I know, that you've done me a-wrong.
Baby, I know, that your time is gonna come.
I say,
A-who's been a-messin'
Around with you.
A-who's been a-messin'
A-tell the truth.

Well I want to know his name
And what you plan to do.
Why can't you see, and understand,
I only wanted you.
Baby, I know, there's just nothing more to say.
Baby, I know, it's just part of a game you play.

A-who's been a-messin' (Who's been messin')
Around with you.
A-who's been a-messin' (Who's been messin')
A-tell the truth.
Pretty Mama

I said, baby, I know, that you've done me a-wrong.
I said, baby, I know, that your time is gonna come.
I said, baby, I know, there's just nothing more to say.
I said, baby, I know, it's just part of a game you play.
C'mon now who's been messin'
It's got to be somebody
What's wrong with you woman
Can't you see I got you
Who's messin' with you baby,
Who




7. CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN

Can't keep a good man down.
Well I thought I heard a telephone honey,
And I know it's the man you love.
A-don't try to hide it honey,
You can't keep a good man down too long.
All my life, I have, given in to you.
And all your life, you have, made me a fool.

You can't keep a good man down.
I'll be back up and around.
Bet your life you can't keep this good man down.

Well I try to do the best things for you.
And I know I ain't always right.
And even though I say I'm sorry,
Why can't you treat me right.
And all this time,
You have, said you love me.
And all this time,
Now I, want to be free.

You can't keep a good man down.
I'll be back up and around.
And bet your life you can't keep,
This good man down.

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

You can't keep a good man down.
I'll be back up and around.
You bet your life you can't,
Oh bet your life you can't
Keep me down,
Keep me down too long.
You can't keep a good man down.
I'll be back up and around.
You bet your life you can't
Keep this good man down.




8. TAKE ME BACK

Take me back to see you smile again
And the love you had for your friends
Take me back for the times we had
When we joked and laughed take me back

'Cause I know you'll live forever
And I know we're still together
Thru' your music and your love
Take me back, oh take me back, Oh take me back

You were proud and strong
You taught me right from wrong, what a friend!
Take me back for the words you spoke
always get me home to the end

'Cause I know you'll live forever
And I know we're still together
Thru' your music and your love
Take me back, take me back.

Take me back to see you smile again
And the love you had for your friends
Take me back for the times we had
When we joked and laughed take me back
'cause I'm lonely If you only could take me back

Take me back, won't you take me
Oh take me back, won't you take me, take me back,
Won't you take me, oh take me back,

I love the life that you live and the things that you give
So won't you take me, oh take me back
Won't you take me, (oh) take me back,

You said the strong would survive,
Oh Lord, gotta try
So won't you take me, oh take me back,
Won't you take me, oh take me back
There's just one thing to say:
Brother, I love you!
Won't you take me back...
