"Just Won't Burn" CD Song Lyrics


Rock Me Right
(Tom Hambridge)

You say you haven't been rocked in a long, long time
And good hard rockin is so hard to find
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you shout
Oh, your homemade loving done knocked me out.

Now I've looked long and hard for you 
And you seem to know what I'm fixing to do
Oh you run a little hot but that's alright
Your fruit ain't rotten it's oh so ripe.

Now your mama sure done raised you right when
It comes to home cooking you eat every bite
Take your sweet time we've got all night
And I'm gonna show you how to Rock Me Right

Come on and Rock Me Right , Oh Rock Me Right
Rock Me Right , I'm gonna show you how to Rock Me Right

When your stomach starts growling I know what you need darlin
Oh Fix me up something salty and sweet, 
Oh now homemade cookin always does the trick
Oh your cotton ain't rotten just needs to be picked

Now your mama sure done raised you right when
It comes to home cooking you eat every bite
Take your sweet time we've got all night
And I'm gonna show you how to Rock Me Right

Come on and Rock Me Right , Oh Rock Me Right
Rock Me Right , I'm gonna show you how to Rock Me Right
Come on and Rock Me Right , Oh Rock Me Right
Rock Me Right , I'm gonna show you how to Rock Me Right
 


You Need To Be With Me
(Susan Tedeschi)

When my love comes down baby
I'm gonna give it to you
There ain't a thing you can do darling
Cause I wanna give it to you
I said I'm gonna give it to you 
Oh I'm gonna give it to you

Oh now when I turn around baby 
So slow and patiently
All my thoughts fly straight to you darling
And cry out helplessly they say

You need to be with me, You need to be with me
Oh they say You need to be with me, You need to be with me.

Now you know I need you baby, and
Oh how I've got to make you see
That there's no other for you 
You need to, you need to , you need to be with me

Now I step from plank to plank darling,
So slow and cautiously, 
With all the stars about my head 
Below my feet the sea

I said you need to be with me, You need to be with me
Oh you need to be with me, You need to be with me


Little by Little
(Junior Wells)

You Stay out all night till the break of day
Snap me up with every word I say
Little by Little oh I'm losing you I can see
And Bit by Bit Your love is slipping away from me

Oh now what you doing baby? You know it ain't right
I wonder what you're doing that it takes all night
Little by little I'm losing you that I can see
Bit by bit you're love is slipping away from me

Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo,Wo (3x's)

Now I get so disgusted when I try to kiss you 
it just don't feel like it used to do
Little by little oh I'm losing you that I can see
Bit by bit your love is slipping away from me

Now I tried to trail you last night in my car
But I was scared I might find what I was looking for
Little By Little I'm losing you that I can see
Bit by bit your love is slipping away from me

Now I said wo,wo, wo, wo baby that's the way I feel
Now I said wo,wo, wo, wo baby that's the way I feel
Now I said wo,wo, wo, wo baby that's the way I feel


It Hurt So Bad
(Tom Hambridge)

I miss the arms that used to hold me
The tender way we used to kiss
And Oh how I miss the way that you touch me
I miss the sweet taste of your lips

I was a fool to ever leave you
You were a fool to let me go
Now it's so lonesome here without you
Oh how I miss you so

It hurt, It hurt, It hurt so bad
You were the best man I ever had 
Why was I so blind to see?
That now the biggest fool is me

I miss the arms that used to hold me
The tender way we used to kiss
And Oh how I miss the way that you touch me
I miss the sweet taste of your lips

It hurt, It hurt, It hurt so bad
You were the best man I ever had 
Why was I so blind to see?
That now the biggest fool is me

Oh what a fool I was darlin
And yes you were such a fool to let me go
Why did you let me go?
It's so lonesom here with out you
Oh how I miss you so

Oh,Oh now
Don't do it (improv over chorus)
And oh how I miss you
I miss you , so


Found Someone New
(Susan Tedeschi)

Tired of being alone, Waiting on you to phone me
It's four in the morning and I'm cold
And there ain't no one to hold me
I know that it's true, I've found someone new
I know it's not right, but I won't give up this fight
Cause I'm tired of feeling lonely 
thinking it's me that's been wrong

I know I love you today
Oh but I don't love you in that way
I'm trying to make a new start
But you're running with my heart

I know that it's true, I've found someone new
I know it's not right, but I won't give up this fight
oh I know that it's true, I've found someone new
I know it's not right, but I won't give up
Oh I won't, I won't, I won't give up this fight
I know that it's true I've found someone new
Cause I'm tired of feeling lonely 
thinking it's me that's been wrong
Darling I'm the only one who's been strong,
I've been so strong


Looking For Answers
(Susan Tedeschi)

How many times must I sit here and tell you goodbye?
How many times must I sit all alone and cry?
How many times must I ask mercy on me?
How many times must I beg to be free?

Well I'm looking for answers, looking for answers that nobody knows
Looking for answers, Looking for answers that nobody knows
Oh I'm Looking for answers from above not from below

How many times must I learn to love to give?
How many times must I get down on my knees to pray?
How many times must I pray did you say?

Lord I love you each and everyday
But now is the time when I must ask you why
Why must we live and why must we die?

We'll I'm looking for answers, looking for answers that nobody knows
Looking for answers, Looking for answers that nobody knows
Oh I'm Looking for answers from above not from below


Can't Leave You Alone
(Adrienne Hayes)

I cry for love that's gone
A love that can't be mine
Oh I pay everyday for loving you
Darling deep down inside

How am I gonna tell you?
How am I gonna let you know?
That night and day I'm thinking about you 
and it's killing me slow 

The temptation of you, is oh so strong
I know that I can't have you 
Why can't I leave you alone?

Oh I know that this trouble , It's here to stay
That's why I'm keeping my distance
Praying that you'll come my way
Praying that you'll come my way
Praying that you'll come my way

The temptation of you is oh so strong
I know I can't have you 
Why can't I leave you alone?

I want you to come see me, Late at night
That's when we'll pull down the shades darling
And we'll turn down the lights
I don't want to hurt myself, 
Don't want to drive you away
That's why I'm keeping my distance
Praying that you'll come my way
Praying that you'll come my way
Praying that you'll come my way
Praying that you'll come my way


Just Won't Burn
(Susan Tedeschi)

Oh, I'm feeling kind of lonely
And I'm feeling kind of down
Oh but I know I'm gonna be alright
If these blues are hanging round
Hanging round, Oh hanging round
Hanging round, Oh if these blues are hanging round

Oh I'm feeling kind of tired
And I don't know just what to do
Oh but I know I'm gonna be alright
If these blues will pull me through
Pull me through, Oh pull me through
Pull me through, oh they're gonna pull me through

I'm feeling all tore up
Somehow I don't know which way to turn
Oh but I'm gonna turn my head straight to these blues 
Cause these blues they just won't burn

Just won't burn, oh they just, they just won't burn
Just won't burn ,oh they just won't burn
Just won't burn, Oh they just, they just won't burn


Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean
(Ruth Brown ?)

I said mama he treats your daughter mean
Oh I said mama he treats your daughter mean
Well he's the meanest man I've ever seen

I said mama this man is lazy
Almost drive me crazy
Mama he takes all my money
Makes me call him honey

I've stood all that I can stand
Said what's the matter with this man

I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Oh I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Well he's the meanest man I've ever seen
Help me now!

I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Oh I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Well he's the meanest man I've ever seen

Oh I said mama I'm so disgusted
He just can't be trusted
Mama he makes me squeeze him
Oh tell mama my squeezes just don't please him

I've stood all I can stand
Gonna pack my bags and leave this man

I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Oh I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
He's the meanest man I've ever seen
Lord, No, Now!

Got to find a good man
Oh I said mama I'm tired of this man of mine
I got to find me a good man baby
Find me a good man now
Find me a good man baby
I got to find me a good man-Oh Yes!
I got to find me a good man now
I need a good man
One that's gonna treat me right
And oh one that's gonna come home at night
I don't want a man that wants to fuss and fight
Oh I said mama... mama... he treats... your daughter... mean...

Oh I said mama he treats your daughter so mean
Well he's the meanest man I've ever seen
Oh, No, So Mean!


Angel From Montgomery
(John Prine)

I am an old woman
Named after my mother
My old man is another
Child that's grown old

If dreams were thunder
And lightnin' was desire
This old house would have burnt down
A long time ago

Make me an angel, that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster, of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing, Lord , that I can hold onto
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

When I was a young girl
I had me a cowboy
He wasn't much to look at
Just a free ramblin' man

Oh, but that was such a long time
And no matter how I try
Those years they just flow by
Like a broken-down van

Make me an angel, that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster, of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing, I can hold onto
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear all their buzzin'
But I ain't done nothin
Since I woke up today

How the hell can a person
Go to work in the morning
And come home in the evening
And have nothin' to say?

Make me an angel, that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing I can hold onto
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go


Friar's Point
(Tom Hambridge and Susan Tedeschi)

Just past Friar's Point, over where the crossroads lay
Just past Friar's Point, over where the crossroads lay

I was walking by the cotton fields, and I swear I heard Robert Johnson play

Down in New Orleans, I know a girl who preaches in the Lion's Den
Down in New Orleans, I know a girl who sings in the Lion's Den

You can hear Irma Thomas, and she'll take you right back to church again

We got the blues now, surely ain't got a thing to lose
Oh we got the blues, surely don't have a thing to lose
Oh darling it's these blues that really make you move

Doin' the hang on Beale Street, there's music blasting out of every door
Hangin' out on Beale Street, there's always music pouring out of every door
Rocking the house at BB's, your feet they never touch the floor

Oh south side of Chicago, oh all the way where Magic Sam used to play
Oh south side of Chicago, maybe over at the Checkerboard Lounge
You can still hear Muddy Waters, laying all that old soul down

Oh we got the blues darlin', sure don't have a thing to lose
Oh we got the blues, surely don't have a thing to lose
And these are some of the people who really make you move
