BluesMusicFan Radio Oh hell... all the tracks are really great... and we're huge on original blues. We had to have this EP right away, we're gonna be wearing out the virtual grooves on this one on BluesMusicFanRadio.com. Corner Girls has a great slow groove, the vocals and phrasing gives us the chills. Great work Alan, Chris, Jeremy, Parmis & Steve! Favorite track: Take The Money.

Corner Girls 04:24
Well it's over now Can't say I'll miss this sorry little town With it's narrow walls And the corner girls I guess I'm moving on What I can't carry I'll bury or burn Keep no photographs And when I hear your name I'll be sure to laugh You came like a hurricane Burning without flame You wrapped yourself around me I was lost within the pain Tried to keep on moving You followed everywhere And the ground was dead beneath my feet But you didn't seem to care Always such a scene The dreamer with his dream Slip the needle in Fall for it again And it's always such a scene The dreamer with his dream Slip the needle in Fall for it again And the cloud is in your blood Can't ever get enough No more dying for this love

I was talking to a rich man He said take the money and run I was talking to a rich man He said take the money and run Well money won't make you happy But it's no fun being poor It's gonna leave you worse off Than you were before Then take the money and run I was talking to an old man He said time ain't on your side I was talking to an old man He said time ain't on your side Well time may be a healer And I know that time flies But what I'd love to know right now Is it something you can buy Take the money and run Oh it's evil But I need it And I can't have no fun Not unless I take the money and run I was talking to the devil He said "Son, the store is closed" Yes, I was talking to the devil He said "Son, the store is closed You could say I sold out a long time again You might say that I retired I'm gonna put my feet up And relax by the fire - Take the money and run"

Miss Lonely 03:38
Hang on Miss Lonely I'm coming soon You got to find you somebody to love Who won't treat you like a fool Yeah I'm on my way Just listen to what I say Well there ain't nobody like you Who can do me good Hang on Miss Lonely I know you been down You got to find you somebody to love Who won't be messing you around Just get on the floor You can shake it till you shake no more Well there ain't nobody like you Who can do me good Yes I know I been down before I've had sorrow and trouble Come beating on down my door Sometimes I felt like I'd never be free Then I found somebody like you To do me good

I can't put my finger on Everything that I've done wrong But there seems to me to be a reason I keep hanging on Love watch over me And I don't know the reason why But for all these bitter tears I cry When I feel it near me almost every day and night Love wash over me Here comes the rain I can feel it falling down my face Hear it calling out my name Here comes the rain You don't have to worry now No need to worry now
5.
I know you don't want to see me I know you're with somebody new I know that you can't forgive me For walking out baby, on you Well I'm a fool for ever leaving I'm a fool for not coming home I spend my time every evening But in the morning I'm still alone And all I do is call you You leave me hanging on the line Forgive me, take pity on me Pick me up sometime Well I wish I could give you diamonds I wish I could give you gold I wish I could take the time back And lay it all at your door But all I do is call you You leave me hanging on the line Forgive me, take pity on me Pick me up sometime Operator please, won't you pick me up sometime

I want to know Where the lonely hearts go When the night closes in And there's nowhere left too go Darlin please don't go I can't do this alone And I believe it's harder now Than it ever was before Time and again I hear it from my friends You'd best move on And let real love make amends But darlin they don't know Just why I love you so But believe it's harder now Than it ever was before Why'd you leave me You said I'll never fall in love again With anyone but you Oh it's a shame to spend your life With someone so cruel I want to know Where the lonely hearts go Please find me someone Someone I can call my own Darlin don't you know The world is not so small And for every word you said I believed in a thousand Every word you said there was a thousand Every word you said I believed Every word

People I know you're weary You been working your whole life through Here come the government man To tell you got another ten years in you No, we're gonna roll and we're gonna tumble We'll shake and we're gonna howl We'll sharpen up our teeth We're gonna stamp our feet Give them something worth fighting for So people I don't have to tell you These are hard times we're living through When the folks that got ain't ever got enough So here's what we're gonna do No, we're gonna roll and we're gonna tumble We'll shake and we're gonna howl We'll sharpen up our teeth We're gonna stamp our feet Give them something worth fighting for Get out your rockin' chair Get out your shivering bones Burn down that walkin' frame We're gettin fooled no more No more So people I know you hear me Tell me what are we working for When they take what we got And then they sell it all off And take us down to the old folks home No, we're gonna roll and we're gonna tumble We'll shake and we're gonna howl We'll sharpen up our teeth We're gonna stamp our feet Give them something worth fighting for Get out your rockin' chair Get out your shivering bones Burn down that walkin' frame We're gettin fooled no more No more
