I Shall Be Released

They say ev’rything can be replaced,
Yet ev’ry distance is not near.
So I remember ev’ry face
Of ev’ry man who put me here.

With God on Our Side

Oh my name it ain’t nothin’
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest

Ballad of Hollis Brown

Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin broken down


From the Neville Brothers album “Yellow Moon” (1989)

Don’t Fall Apart On Me Tonight

Just a minute ‘fore you leave, girl
Just a minute ‘fore you touch the door
What is it that you’re trying to achieve, girl?
Do you think we can talk about it some more?

Gotta Serve Somebody

You may be an ambassador
To England or France
You might like to gamble
You might like to dance
