POOR TOM

Here's a tale of Tom
Who worked the rivers run
His wife would cook his meat
As he would check the wheel

Said poor Tom, Seventh Son
Always knew what's goin on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

Worked for thirty years
Sharin' hopes and fears
Dreamin' of the day
He could turn and say

Poor Tom, work's gone
Lazin' out in the noonday sun

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

His wife was Ellie May
One of many games she played
When Tom was out of town
She couldn't keep her dresses down

Poor Tom, Seventh Son
Always knew what's goin on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

And so it was one day
People got to Ellie May
Tom took a gun in his hand
And stopped all the runnin' around

Poor Tom, Seventh Son
Gotta die for what you've done

All those years of work are thrown away
To ease your mind is that all you can say
But what about that grandson on your knee
And railroad's son is the best he could be

Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

Keep-a Truckin'
Keep-a Truckin

I CAN'T QUIT YOU BABY

I can't quit you babe
Woman I think I'm gonna put you down for a little while
I can't quit you, baby
I guess I gotta put you down for awhile
Said you messed up my happy home
Made me mistreat my only child
Yes, you did, babe, ohhh

Said you know I love you, baby
My love for you I could never hide
Oh, you know I love you, baby
My love for you I could never hide
Oh, when I feel you near me, little girl
I know you are my one desire, ohhhhhh, ohhhh ohhhh

  (Guitar Solo)

When you hear me moaning and groaning, baby
You know it hurts me deep down inside
Ohh, when you hear me moaning and groaning, baby
You know it hurts me deep down inside
Oh, when you hear me, honey baby
You know you're my one desire
Yes, you are, oh my

WALTER'S WALK

Oooh, don't it feel so strange lookin' at the door
Ahhh, tryin' hard to change but can't let go
Ohhh, cryin' tears of pain hurtin' more an' more
Ohhh, everyday's the same as you walk in the door

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walkin' the floor

Every heart that breaks is a heart that's cold
Ohhh, to the hand that takes your dreamless soul
Ohhh, is it long to wait, is it much too late
Ohhh, sometimes it's hard when you pour in the day

You know it's hard
I said it's hard
You know
I said it's hard
You know it's hard
You know it's true

Everyday the hole in the smile is ours
When you hear the call, can you count the costs
As you stand alone do you wonder how
Can you step aside, does it matter now

Every love that's changed (Every love that's changed)
Spend it fully (fully)
In the eyes of the night (In the eyes of the night)
Was it hard to see (Was it hard to see)
And the day of the fail (And the day of the) my spite grow
So you fight the tears, enter Walter's Walk

You know it's true now
You know it's true now
Oooh, yeah

  Guitar Solo

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walkin' the floor

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost
When ya hear the call, can you count the cost
Can you stand alone, do you wonder how
Can you step inside, does it matter now

Does it matter now
Does it
Now, does it matter

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh, little baby don't you go
Every tear that's falls
Does it matter now
Does it matter now
Oh yeah, oh yes, oh yes

  Guitar Solo
