The Very Thing That Makes You Rich (Makes Me Poor)

(James Lewis, Jimmy Holiday, Cliff Chambers)
Well, I met a girl from Texas 'bout a year ago
Hadn't known her for too long when I had to let her go
You see, she had a razor, was ten inches or so
And every night you'd hear her knocking at my door
She said,

Chan Chan

(francisco repilado)
(dm) - (f) - (c) - (a7)
De (dm) alto cedro voy (f) para marcane
(c) luego a cueto voy (a7) para mayari.
El cariiao a,ue te tengo
Yo no lo puedo negar
Se me sale la babita
Yo no lo puedo evitar.
Cuando juanica y chan chan
En el mar cernian arena
Como sacudia el jibe
A chan chan le daba pena.
Limpia el camino de paja
Que yo me qriero sentar
En aquel tronco que veo
Y asi no puedo llegar.
De alto cedro voy para marcane
Luego a cueto voy para mayari.

Crow Black Chicken

(laurence wilson)
Well, I went on the mountain
And I gave my horn a blow
Thought I heard some purty gal say
Yonder come my beau
Crow black chicken and crow for a day
Crow black chicken and fly away
Crow black chicken and-a ...
I like chicken pie
Well, the hardest work that ever I done
Is plowin a field of rye
The easiest work that ever I done
Was eatin chicken pie
Chicken crow for midnight
And chicken crow for a day
Along come an owl, lord, have mercy
And stole my chicken away

Dark End Of The Street

(Harold Adamson, Jimmie McHugh)
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
With our one motor gone
We can still carry on
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
What a show, what a fight
Boys, we really hit our target for tonight
How we sing as we limp through the air
Look below, there's our field over there
With our one motor gone
We can still carry on
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer
With our full crew on board
And our trust in the Lord
We're comin' in on a wing and a prayer

France Chance

(joe callicott)
Drop down baby, just like showers of rain
I hate to hear my fair brown call my name, yeah
I hate to hear my fair brown call my name
Well, she calls so loud, and the poor girl calls so plain
Walks to the station, tears running down
I got news, my baby, done left town, yeah
I got news, my baby, cause he done blow this town
Well, I got great news, my baby, he done blow this town
Blues started calling me like ronny and france
Looks like that other guy wont allow me no chance, yeah
Well, it looks like, to me, that other guy wont allow me all chance
Hum, hum, hum

Ax Sweet Mama

(sleepy john estes)
Well, I ax sweet mama, let me be her kid
She said I might but Id like to keep it hid
Well, she looked at me, she began to smile
She says I thought I might use you for my man awhile
But just dont let my husband catch you there
I say, just dont let my husband catch you there
Well, I went upstairs to pack my leavin trunk
I never saw no whiskey
The blues made me sloppy drunk
I aint never saw no whiskey
The blues made me sloppy drunk
Well, I aint saw no whiskey
The blues made me sloppy drunk
Well, some said it was beans, some said it was greens
But its slow consumption killin you by degrees
Its slow consumption killin you by degrees
