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.

Track Name: Corner Girls
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
Track Name: Take The Money
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"
Track Name: Miss Lonely
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
Track Name: Here Comes The Rain
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
Track Name: Operator Please
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
Track Name: Time And Again
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
Track Name: Rockin' Chair
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
