"A" Road lyrics - Concrete Blonde

Judy Judy valentine
Couldn't walk a straight white line
She brought a lizard home to stay
He hissed and licked her every day

The "A" road is an old road
The "A" road is a long road
The "A" road is an old road
The "A" road is an old road

Judy Judy friend of mine
Sweet and crazy concubine
She'd love to talk but she ain't got time
She's a hot pink minx, she's a Frankenstein

The "A" road is an old road
The "A" road is a long road
The "A" road is an old road
The "A" road is an old road
[3x]

Because I Can lyrics - Concrete Blonde

Here I am
In a strange new world
Someplace
somewhere in time

I found my place
Where the high turns blue
And I walked
right out of my mind

Because I wanna
Because I can
Because I wanna
Because I can

Here I am
And I think I'll stay
Until I
Fly out over the wire

Clean and clear
I think I
Like it here
I delight in the light of my fire

Because I wanna
Because I can
Because I wanna
Because I can

Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life is a lonely lesson
Life

Because I wanna
Because I can
Because I wanna
Because I can
Because I wanna
Because I can
Because I wanna
Because I can

True To This lyrics - Concrete Blonde

I gave away my trampoline
My water skis
And slot machine
I'm through with this
I'm through with this

I gave away my velvet dress
My high heeled shoes
And I couldn't care less
I'm through with this
Through with this

I gave away my highschool ring
My lava lamp
And everything
I'm through with this
Through with this

I traded my records
I traded my car
For a motor home
To the wino at the corner of the bar
I'm through with this
I'm through with this

Stay away from cannon balls
Always love the animals
Be true to this
Be true to this

When you sleep
Be sure to dream
Believe in every Halloween
Be true to this
Be true to this

I believe in what you do
Not what you say
I love you and
I'm true to this

Ghost Riders In The Sky lyrics - Concrete Blonde

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day,
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way,
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
Ploughin' through the ranging sky
And up a cloudy draw.

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel.
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath, they could feel,
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky,
For he saw the riders comin' hard
And he heard their mournful cry.
Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
Ghost riders in the sky.

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts were soaked
With sweat.
He's ridin' hard to catch that herd but he ain't caught them yet
'Cause they've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky,
On horses snortin' fire
As they ride on, hear their cry.
Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
Ghost riders in the sky.
Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
Ghost riders in the sky.

Te riders loped on by him and he heard one call his name.
"If you want to save your soul from hell a-riding on our range,
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Tryin' to catch this devil's herd
Across these endless skies."
Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
Ghost riders in the sky.
Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
Ghost riders in the sky.

Snakes lyrics - Concrete blonde

Well now I think I make a right
If I remember yes, I think maybe tonight
I may do better when the moon is up and bright
Where I last saw you; what a sight, what a sight
(ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh, ah
shed your skin, I'm coming, shed your skin)

Between the canyon and the sky
where you can't hide, you can't hide
the desert sky has a million eyes
and the stars are on my side
(ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh, ah
shed your sky, I'm coming)

I think I feel you in the sand
Not far away; tiny tremor of the land
I lay and wait
I'll see your eyes, your big white eyes
But they won't see me
But you and I will meet tonight
Under a Joshua tree
(ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh, ah
shed your sky, I..... shed your skin, shed your sky, ayaya...)

"Group Therapy" (2002)

Roxy lyrics - Concrete Blonde

All the young dudes
Feathered and possessed
A sparkling sequined mess
So special and so eloquent, Heaven sent

What I meant to say is
Of all the sounds I hear
With my humble human ear
None are as delicious or nutritious

Oh Roxy, you're my Maggie May
More beautiful tonight
Than you ever were back in the day
Oh Roxy, your golden boys
Make a beautiful noise after all these years
You still bring tears to my eyes

Sweeter sounds
From space were never heard
Or a perfect turn of word
Like a whirlwind, you blow in again and all the songs

Have been in my head and heart for so long
It's like listening to a kiss
Oh, you'll never know just
How very much we missed you, dearest

Oh Roxy, you're my Maggie May
More beautiful tonight
Than you ever were back in the day
Oh Roxy, your golden boys
Make a beautiful noise after all these years
You still bring tears to my eyes

Oh Roxy, you're my Maggie May
More beautiful tonight
Than you ever were back in the day
Oh Roxy, your golden boys
Make a beautiful noise after all these years
You still bring tears to my eyes

Oh Roxy, you're my Maggie May
More beautiful tonight
Than you ever were back in the day
Oh Roxy, your golden boys
Make a beautiful noise after all these years
You still bring tears to my eyes



Violent lyrics - Concrete Blonde

I feel hot & red & wired
I feel burned out like I've expired.
Freaky dreams & you are there
With glowing eyes & burning hair &
& I'm not even dreaming
Violent.
Every nerve & every cell
They gotta fight to stay alive & well
I'm in a world of chronic
Discontent
Screaming metal & burning rubber
Always shoving & raping & cursing each other
Exploding into violence.

Try some buy some
Wheel & deal it
Buy or steal it
If it makes you feel it
We want it intense
We want our violence.
Get ready to take it all the way
The things they do
The words they say it's all so
Ready to get
Violent

Wedding bells all pink & white
Chocolates & candlelight
You & me & we makes three
K/ i /s /s /i/ n/ g
Like a comedy
That never played quite right

It seems so easy & it looks so clean, all the
Shiny happy people in the magazines
But nothing seems to mean
What it meant.
A flood of blood & a burning pain
Broken hearts & throbbing brains
The message has been sent
& it's violent

Try some buy some
Wheel & deal it
Buy or steal it
If it makes you feel it
We want it intense
We want our violence.
Get ready to take it all the way
The things they do
The words they say it's all so
Ready to get
Violent

When I Was A Fool lyrics - Concrete Blonde

I re-read silly lines
That made sense at the time
Pages all stained with tears and red wine
And I walk through the airport and see magazines
Every face that I see
So much younger than me
And I smile to myself how I don't even miss
My glorious past or the lips that I've kissed
And I think to myself that how easy this is
Easy to breathe, easy to live

And I wonder why I tear myself in two
Over how to be, what to say and what to do
And I know you liked me better then
And I know you liked me better when I was a fool
…I was a fool
…mm
…I was a fool
…mm

So I live in these days
But I still have my old ways
'cause the future, somehow, has yet to arrive
And I see all around me the women on time
Kids and divorces and crisis in midlife
and do I surrender and give up my dream
for a brick in the wall and a washing machine
grow up and get real
for a kid in their teens
who won't care what I've done
where I've been, what I've seen

And I wonder why I tear myself in two
over who to be, how to be and what to do
and I know you liked me better then
and I know you liked me better when I was a fool
…I…was a fool
…I was a fool
…I was a fool

I'm free to a fault
I'm 45
I'm playing guitar
I'm living my life
Fly down the highway
Sun on my face
I belong to nobody
I belong to no place

True, Part III lyrics - Concrete Blonde

And I will leave this life
And I will know I've done the very best I can

And I will leave behind
Strain and pain
And take the blame for who I am

And I
I tried
Tried to find a way
To hang it all together
Oh together

And when
I leave this life,
What will you say of me,
You who never knew my heart?

For I will
Leave behind
The sound of a woman
Who knew what was true
From the start.

And I
I wanna slide
Out of my old hide all
Clean and free and better

Yeah I
Wanna ride off into a wild new morning,
Off into forever
Forever.

Oh I
I
Wanna ride
Off into some wild new morning,
Off into forever.

Oh I
I wanna slide
Out of my old hide all
Clean and free and better
Oh forever


Tonight lyrics - Concrete Blonde

Walking on a cloud to another shore
A luminous and beautiful promise of more

Tonight I'll be with you
Tonight I'll be with you

Walking through time
Dancing through space
The pearly-gray moon is wearing your face
And tonight I'll be with you
Tonight I'll be with you
Oh I hear your voice
Oh I have no choice I follow

Swinging on a star
Flying around
This is so bizarre, maybe
I better come down

Tonight I'll be with you
Tonight I'll be with you

Let's go planet hopping
Through the universe
There's no stopping us
Where to first?

Tonight I'll be with you
Tonight I'll be with you

Valentine lyrics - Concrete Blonde

You were watching me eat
You were watching me sleep
You were a willing sheep
And I was little-bo-peep and
You were writing it down and
You were looking for cracks but I
Look good with a knife in my back

Valentine,
I'm all mine
Valentine,
I'm all mine

With a flick of my wrist and
With a twitch of my lid
I'll make you wish like hell
You never said what you did and
With a flick of my tongue and
With a lick of my lip
You'll never work your way up
To where I slipped from

Valentine,
My steel spine
Shines up fine,
Valentine
Valentine,
I'm all mine
Shines up fine,
Valentine

Well I got leather skin
And I got a brick head
And I got clay feet and
A heart of dead lead and
I'm all wired up
And I got a lotta soul
And from what I'm told a golden hole

Valentine,
My steel spine
Shines up fine,
Valentine
Valentine,
I'm all mine
Shines up fine,
Valentine

Your Llorona lyrics - Concrete blonde

Last night I saw her,
Your Llorona
Sitting alone at the back of the bar.
Through the smoke & tequila
Tears & mascara
Hopeless & haunting the
Hotel Cesar

Oh
Your Llorona.
Will remember forever,
Corazon.
Oh, your Llorona,
Still waiting, still weeping,
Still alone.

I didn't know what to tell her,
Your Llorona,
She was watching the boys
Come & go all night
She was looking for you again,
Your Llorona.
The one in the corner
Dressed in white.

She was asking about you again,
Your Llorona
So what should I tell her, so
What should I say?
She things you are coming back,
Your Llorona
She swears you are coming back to her one day.

Oh,
Your Llorona
Will remember forever,
Corazon.
Oh, your Llorona
Still waiting & weeping
Still alone

Take Me Home lyrics - Concrete Blonde

Pick up the phone I know you're there
It's almost closing time
& we can toss down one more shot
Before last call

Are you ok?
I swear to God
I gotta get out of this house
I miss the days when I'd just
Not come home at all..

So, don't you cry, it'll give you lines
Around your eyes
You gotta try not to live so much of
Life alone.
& if I see you getting crazy by the bottom of the bottle
Take me home, take me home, I'll take
You home

Remember when we used to stumble
Down the boulevard
From bar to bar until we couldn't stagger straight
It seemed like we would live forever,
Life was not this hard
No we felt nothing much at all but it felt
Great

So, don't you cry it'll give you lines
Around your eyes
You gotta try not to live so much of
Life alone
& if I see you getting crazy by the bottom of the bottle,
Take you home, I'll take you home, I'll
Take you home.

Things get better everyday you stay alive
Then I'm amazed
Every day
That the sun decides to rise
Every minute, every hour, is another
Chance to change
Life is beautiful & terrible & strange.

So don't you cry, it'll give you lines around
Your eyes
You gotta try not to live so much of life alone
& if I see you getting crazy by the bottom
Of the bottle,
Take you home, I'll take you home, I'll take you home.

Now don't you cry, it'll give you lines around
Your eyes
You gotta try not to live so much of life alone
& if you see me getting crazy by the bottom of the bottle,
Take me home, take me home, take me home.
