April Blues

I told when I left you
I told when I go
I told for the last time
in the cabin down below
you cannot keep me boy
by the chain that’s in your hand
you can put the spell of love on me
but it blows away like sand

and I know you
oh you wan-na taste my kiss
I know what you like
what you like is this

I told you on that first hot night
you gotta take me as I am
when the devil comes to claim your soul
you’ll be thankful you been damned
I lit your ya-ya fire love
delicious, funky, fine
I know I said I love you boy
I meant it at the time


when I left you I was travelin light
sweet talkin for my pay
you held my body to you
just beggin me to stay
you know the cost of lovin me
it leaves a burnin brand
you said if I can’t keep you girl
then no other lover can
you put your voodoo charm on me
that’s what the spirit’s tell
you sold me down the river
in a boat that goes to hell

Touching, humorous, spellbinding storytelling—my songs brings you into the irony, the tragedy, and the possibilities of life. ... more
