Up from the ashes, out of the flames · Kepps gettin' stronger, like a slow rollin' train · Watch it run · Oh, why do the good die young · Burnin' like a shootin' star · Born with a broken heart · Off in the distance, it was callin' my name · So I took me a ride, on that slow rollin' train · It still runs · But it seems that the good die young · Playin' on that sad guitar · Born with a broken heart · Burnin' like a shootin' star · Born with a broken heart ·  Seems it was over, before it begun · Killed by a bullet, from a six-string gun · Bang a drum · Oh, why do the good die young · Ridin' in a long black car · Born with a broken heart · Playin' on that sad guitar · Born with a broken heart · Burnin' like a shootin' star · Born with a broken heart
Q
Needles in my heart, spell on my mind · Your powerful potion gets me everytime · I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night · Your kiss burns through my dreams · Chorus: ·  Here it comes again ·  I don't stand a chance ·  Soul possession · Got me in a trance · Pullin' me back to you - · Deja voodoo · Fire in the dark, pounding in my brain · Driven by the chant calling out my name · I toss and turn, I can't sleep · Your kiss burns, through my dreams

I was over in Aberdeen · On my way to New Orleans · I was over in Aberdeen · On my way to New Orleans · Well the Aberdeen women told me · They would give me my gasoline · Aberdeen is my home · But they just don't want me around · Aberdeen is my home · But they just don't want me around · I'm gonna take these women · Take them out this town · Well just look over yonder · Coming down the road · Well just look over yonder · Coming down the road · That must be my baby coming · Tell me she don't want me know more · Well there's too many women · I ain't never seen · Well there's too many women · I ain't never seen · I bring too many women · Back from New Orleans  · I was standin' 'roun cryin' · With my heart right in my hand · I was standin' 'round cryin' · With my heart right in my hand · I was lookin' for that woman · One ain't got no man · Well just look over yonder · Where we used to live · Well just look over yonder · Where we used to live · Don't you know it's killing me, baby · How we can't live here no more · Well it's goodbye, baby · If I'm never gonna see you no more · Well it's goodbye, baby · If I'm never gonna see you no more · I'm gonna tell everybody you've been · Still knockin at my door

Chorus: · Shame, shame, shame · Shame on me for loving you · Shame, shame, shame · Shame on me for loving you · You came and you went · What's this poor boy to do · I tried, yes I tried · Was your love to me just on love · Repeat Chorus
Q
You say, "Come over baby. · Come talk to me" · Then you drive me so crazy · I can't hardly see · If this keeps goin' on · I might just leave and not come back · I got on foot in your doorway · I got one foot on the path · Well you beg me to stay · Then you order me to go · All this up and down · Is wear and tear on my soul · I'm wonderin' if our future · Is gonna look just like our past · I got one foot in your doorway · I got one foot on the path · Now I love you, baby · Don't get me wrong · But this heart of mine · May not be that strong · You got me on you line · Reel me in or throw me back · I got one foot in your doorway · I got one foot on the path · You'd best think about it, baby · But don't take too long · If we can't get it right · I'll just be movin' on · I can't wait forever · For us to get this thing on track · I got one foot in your doorway, baby · I got one foot on the path

I'm leaving you, woman · Before I commit a crime · I'm leaving you, woman · Before I commit a crime · You tried so hard to kill me · But baby, it was not my time · You put poison in my coffee · Instead of milk or cream · You put poison in my coffee · Instead of milk or cream · You're the evilest woman · I think I've ever seen · You mix my drink · With a can of Red Devil lye · You mix my drink · With a can of Red Devil lye · Then you sit right down · Watch me, hoping I might die
Q
When I fell for you, baby · I really met my match · You use me, abuse me · But I keep comin' back · Let me up, baby, I've had enough · It never seems to matter · What we fight about · I'm the one who winds up · Down for the count · Let me up, baby, I've had enough · Chorus: · I love ya, I want ya · Just like I did before · I need ya, but if I leave ya · It's cause I just can't take no more · Somehow you rememver · Every little thing that I've done · So baby, I surrender · I've lost and you have won · Let me up, baby, I've had enough · Chorus
Q
Seen her get up, seen her go down · Down to the riverside · Seen her jump into the river and drown · Down to the riverside · People do just what they will · Don't matter to the river, it's running still · Sun come up, sun go down · Down to the riverside · Sun jump into the river and drown · Down to the riverside · Everyday just like the last · We sit and watch the water pass · Came a day they built a bridge · Down to the riverside · Over the way, on top of the ridge · Down to the riverside · Built a bridge for the people to cross · But every other day, someone's jumping off · You might think some boys they got it made · Down to the riverside · They got the money and the women and a · place in the shade · Down to the riverside · That ain't no way to ease the pain · Can't listen to the river when it calls your name
Q
Time's a wastin' now · And I ain't got no more time to play · Everything is changin' now · Pretty soon it's all gone away · Can we make the changes now · You know there's no other way · Now's the time, the time is now · It's not the why, it's just the how · Chorus: · Have you looked around my friend · And really seen what's goin' down · Take a look into the sky · And lay your hand upon the ground · It is of you good neighbor · I ask a life-long favour · It is my faith I put in you · Repeat Second Verse · Repeat Chorus
