I'm Gonna Crawl

In the Evening
In the evening...when the day is done,
I'm looking for a woman, oh, but the girl don't come.
So don't let her play you for a fool.
She don't show no pity baby.  No no, she don't make no rules

*Oh, oh, I need your love.  I need your love
 Oh, I need your love.  I just got to have*

So don't you let her, Oh, get under your skin.
It's only bad luck and trouble, from the day that you begin.
I hear you crying in the darkness, don't ask nobody's help.
Ain't no pockets full of mercy baby, cause you can only blame yourself.


Oh it's simple, all the pain that you go through.
You can turn away from fortune, fortune, cause that's all that's left to you.
It's lonely at the bottom, man, it's dizzy at the top.
But if you're standing in the middle, ain't no way you're gonna stop.


Oh whatever that your days may bring,
No use hiding in a corner, Oh no, 'cause that won't change a thing.
If you're dancing in the doldrums, one day soon, it's got to stop, it's got to stop.
When you're the master of the off-chance, when you don't expect a lot


South Bound Saurez
Baby, when you walk that sweet walk, Oh, you walk it good, yes you walk it good.
Baby, when you talk that sweet talk, Oh, it sounds so good, oh so good.

With a little bit of concentration, and a little bit of helpin' hands, yeah.
And a little bit of where your mouth is, you know it makes me feel, baby.
Both my feet are back on the ground.

And when the rhythm takes me, it feels so good, oh so good.
Baby if it keeps a-shaking, it will do you good, oh so much good.

With a little bit of stop-a-shakin' shakin',
And a little bit of slow right down?  And a little bit of sweet con carne.
It makes me feel, makes me feel...I got my feet on the ground

Ooh now baby, when you move it makes me really feel so good, oh so good.
And I'm so glad, so glad, so glad, so glad.  And I'm good, oh, so good

With a little bit of concentration, and a little bit of helping hand.
And a little bit of saving madness, you know it makes me feel, baby.
I'm back on the ground oh yes, sure does.  It makes me feel back on the ground.

I'm feelin' good child!  Down on the ground.
Sha la la la...

Fool in the Rain
Oh, baby...

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining,
Like a star that can't wait for the night.
I hate to think I've been blinded baby.
Why can't I see you tonight?

And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin'
And the thrill of your touch gives me fright.
And I'm shaking so much, with a yearning,
Why don't you show up, make it all right?
Yeah, it's all right.

And if you promised your love so completely,
And you said you would always be true.
You swore that you never would leave me, baby:
What ever happened to you?

And you thought it was only in movies,
As you wish so your dreams would come true...hey!
It ain't the first time believe me, baby,
I'm standin here feeling blue...yeah I'm blue

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner,
I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown.
Another ten minutes, no longer,
And then I'm turning around.

The clock on the wall's moving slower,
My heart it sinks to the ground.
And the storm that I thought would blow over,
Clouds the light of the love that I found.

Now my body is starting to quiver,
And the palms of my hands getting wet.
I've got no reason to doubt you baby,
It's all a terrible mess.

I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless,
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey.
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless,
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah.

Light of the love that I found...

Hot Dog
Well I just got into town today, to find my girl who's gone away,
She took the Greyhound at the general store.
I searched myself, I searched the town, when I finally did sit down,
I found myself no wiser than before.

She said we couldn't do no wrong, no other love could be so strong.
She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer.
Now she took my heart she took my keys, from in my old blue dungarees,
And I'll never go to Texas anymore.

*Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do,
 She took my love and walked right out the door.
 And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure,
 I'm gonna give her something like she never had before.*

I took her love at seventeen, a little late these days it seems,
But they said heaven is well worth waiting for.
I took her word I took it all, beneath the sign that said U-haul,
She left angels hangin round for more.


I thought I had it all sewn up, our love, a plot, a pick-up truck,
But folks said she was after something more.
I never did quite understand, all that talk about rockin' bands,
But they just rolled my doll right out the door.
Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door!

Sisters of the way-side biding time in quiet peace,
Await their place within the ring of calm;
Still stand to turn in seconds of release,
Await the call they know may never come.
In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon
To jeopardize the course, upset the run;
And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun
As love in the halls of plenty overrun.

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,
Unending dances shadowed on the day.
Within their walls, their daunting formless keep,
Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay.
Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep,
Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray;
And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,
But no one seemed to question in anyway.

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land
To seek the unsuspecting and the weak;
And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand
Toward the foe that threatened from the deep.
Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand
Adrift upon a sea of futile speech?
And to fall to fate and make the 'status plan'
And th' lord there in heaven would never preach


Where was your word, where did you go?
Where was your helping, where was your bow?  Bow.

Dull is the armour, cold is the day.
Hard was the journey, dark was the way.  Way.

I heard the word;  I couldn't stay.  Oh.
I couldn't stand it another day, another day-ay,
Another day, another day.

Touched by the timely coming, 
Roused from the keeper's sleep,
Release the grip, throw down the key.

Held now within the knowing, 
Rest now within the peace.
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed.

They had to stay!

Held now within the knowing, 
Rest now within the beat.
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed...

All My Love
Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light,
To chase a feather in the wind?
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight,
There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon,
The tides have caused the flame to dim.
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom,
Is this to end or just begin?

All of my love, all of my love, oh,
All of my love to you, now.
All of my love, all of my love,
All of my love to you, now.

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again,
One voice is clear above the din.
Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain,
For me, the cloth once more to spin  .

All of my love, all of my love, oh,
All of my love to you, now.
All of my love, all of my love,
All of my love to you, child.

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time,
His is the force that lies within.
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find,
He is a feather in the wind.

All of my love, all of my love, oh,
All of my love to you, now.
All of my love, oh, yes, all of my love, to you now
All of my love to you, child.

Sometimes... hey hey hey, oh yeah, it's all all all of my love, all of
my love, all of my love, to you now.  all of my love, all of my love,
all of my love, to to you and you and you and yeah!  i get a little bit
lonely.  just standin' up...a little bit a-lonely

I'm Gonna Crawl
Oh she's my baby.  Let me tell you why.
Hey, she drives me crazy, she's the apple of my eye
'Cause she is my girl.  And she can never do wrong
If I dream too much at night, somebody please bring me down

Hey, I love that little lady, I got to be her fool.
Ain't no other like my baby, I can break the golden rule.
'Cause I get down on my knees, oh, I pray that love won't die.
And if I always try to please, I don't know the reason why, yeah.

If she would come back, only stay with me.
Every little bit of my love...I give to you girl.

I don't have to go by plane. I ain't got to go by car.
I don't care just where my darling is.
People I just don't care how far.
I'm gonna crawl.  I don't care if I got to go back home.
I don't care what I got to stand to her back.
I'm gonna crawl.  I'm gonna move the car, baby.
She give me good lovin.  Yes I love her, I guess I love her.
I wanna crawl.
