Saturday Night/Sunday Morning

1. Jailhouse

I'm living in a jailhouse, a jailhouse, a jailhouse it's true

A jailhouse, a jailhouse, serving time with you

Deep, dark dungeon with the greystone walls, that's how it feels to me

A jailhouse, a jailhouse, she threw away the key

Well I'd rather be busting rocks, in that federal pen

Than to be locked up with your cold, low down heart

What a shape I'm in

I've been sentenced to life for the crime of loving you

No parole or pardon could set me free when you feel the way I do

Cuz' I'm living in a jailhouse, a jailhouse, jailhouse it's true

A jailhouse, a jailhouse, serving time with you

Deep, dark dungeon with the greystone walls, that's how it feels to me

A jailhouse, a jailhouse, she threw away the key

Well you tell me I ain't nothing, except your ball and chain

And you've been tangled in a web of sorrow, since the day you changed your name

Well maybe baby, it's about time, for me to make that big escape

Get the judge and jury to cut me loose, take a hard look at my case

Cuz' I'm living in a jailhouse, a jailhouse, a jailhouse it's true

Jailhouse, a jailhouse, serving time with you

Deep, dark dungeon with the greystone walls, that's how it feels to me

Jailhouse, a jailhouse she threw away the key

She threw away the key

She threw away the key

2. Geraldine

Well, that ole train come rollin'

Right through my backyard

When it went across that levy

Well, it's an awful shame

Geraldine

Well I think she's gone to Memphis

Well they tell me he's a gambler

He plays a winnin' hand

Got a pocket full of money

Got a long black Cadillac

She left me in Mississippi

I ain't never comin' back

Geraldine

Geraldine

Why you do me like you do

Why you have to be so mean

Geraldine

Geraldine

Ever since our fightin'

It's empty in my stall

Well, it fell down off the wall

I'll be doin' pretty good

Till that sun goes down

I start thinkin' 'bout my baby

Over in that other town

Geraldine

3. I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome

The lonesome sound of a train going by

Makes me wanna stop and cry

I recall the day it took you away

I'm blue, I'm lonesome too

Well, when I hear that whistle blow

I want to pack my suitcase and go

The lonesome sound of a train going by

Makes me want to stop and cry

In the still of the night, in the pale moonlight

The wind it moans and sighs

These awful blues, I just can't lose

I'm blue, I'm lonesome too

Well, when I hear that ole lonesome whistle blow

I want to pack my suitcase and go

The lonesome sound of a train going by

Makes me want to stop and cry

I'm blue, I'm lonesome too

4. When It Comes To Loving You

I keep on wanting you, with all my heart

Time stands still for me, every minute that we're apart

I keep on needing you, well that's just what I do

Can't seem to help myself when it comes to loving you

There's a fire that burns down in my soul

It comes with the feeling that just won't let me go

It started the first time that we kissed

And left me with a memory that I just can't resist

I keep on wanting you, with all my heart

Time stands still for me, every minute that we're apart

I keep on needing you, well that's just what I do

Can't seem to help myself when it comes to loving you

You're not here, I still can feel your touch

Well, I grow weak at the thought of loving you so much

I keep on wanting you, with all my heart

Time stands still for me, every minute that we're apart

I keep on needing you, well that's just what I do

Can't seem to help myself when it comes to loving you

Can't seem to help myself when it comes to loving you

5. Rough Around The Edges

Well I woke up this morning, with miles of life behind me

My friends and family worry, cause they don't know where to find me

Once again, I beg forgiveness, another lost night in my soul

Some bad's got a hold on me and they just won't let me go

Rough around the edges, it's hard to face myself

The mirror in the morning shows a man who looks like death

Can't seem to find a way to steady up and gain control

Rough around the edges, the devil's reaching for my soul

Well I can't blame nobody for this awful shape I'm in

I've shook a hundred helping hands, then go fall down again

People talk about me, oh that just adds to all the shame

I straighten up for a day or two, then the bottle calls my name

Rough around the edges, it's hard to face myself

The mirror in the morning shows a man who looks like death

Can't seem to find a way to steady up and gain control

Rough around the edges, the devil's reaching for my soul

Rough around the edges, the devil's reaching for my soul

6. Sad House, Big Party

There's people round here that I don't know

Friends I've never seen justa come and go

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Got a room full of people, but I'm all alone

This honky tonk used to be our home

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Might as well go ahead and blow my top

Blues keep a-comin' well they don't stop

Loud covers lonely, it's the one and only

Little thing that seems to help at all

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Might as well go ahead and blow my top

Blues keep a-comin' well they don't stop

Loud covers lonely, it's the one and only

Little thing that seems to help at all

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Sad house, big party, she's gone

Sad house, big party, she's gone

7. Talking To The Wall

Oh I might as well be talking to the wall

I've known so long with me, you've been unsatisfied

So I finally found the strength to say goodbye

Why already I've forgot a million memories

And leaving you was easy as could be

But I might as well be talking to the wall

When I tell myself I'm not missing you at all

Cause every time you come around, I fall

And I might as well be talking to the wall

Oh it seems there's not a day that some friend of mine

Wanna bring back a memory I recall

Then I smile and say, "You know, it's been a long, long time

And I hardly remember her at all"

But I might as well be talking to the wall

When I tell myself I'm not missing you at all

Cause every time you come around, I fall

And I might as well be talking to the wall

Yes, I might as well be talking to the wall

8. Life Has Its Ups And Downs

Don't know how to tell her

I didn't get that raise in pay today

And I know how much she wanted

The dress in Baker's window

It breaks my heart to see her have to wait

And cancel all the plans she made to celebrate

But I can count on her to take it

With a smile and not a frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-ground

And no one grabs the brass ring every time

But she don't mind

She wears a gold ring on her finger

And it's mine

New house plans we've had so long

I guess will gather dust another year

And the daffodils are blooming

That she planted way last fall upon the hill

And over by the gate

Lord knows I hate to say again we'll have to wait

But you can bet she'll just take it

With a smile and not a frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-go-round

And no one grabs the brass ring every time

But she don't mind

Oh baby don't mind

She wears a gold ring on her finger

I'm so glad that it's mine

She wears a gold ring on her finger

And I'm so glad that it's mine

9. Look At That Girl

The way she walks, she got style

The way she moves, drives me wild

She's got a cute little talk

So sophisticated

Make dynamite go boom

Crazy

Y'all look at her once

Look at her twice

Three times

Nice

Look at that girl

Look at that girl

Look at that girl

Look at that girl

From country boy to the Duke of Earl

Say look at that girl

Sparkles like a diamond

She's a natural stone

Could lead a righteous heart

Through the danger zone

Well, I'm a tellin' you boys

She's got romancipation

She could loverize

The United Nations

Y'all look at her once

Look at her twice

Cous, three times

So nice

Hey took at that girl

Look at that girl

Look at that girl

Look at that girl

From country boy to the Duke of Earl

Say look at that girl

Well from country boy to the Duke of Earl

Say look at that girl

10. Old, Old House

There's an old, old house

That once was a mansion

On a hill overlookin' the town

But time's left a wreckage

Where once there was beauty

And soon the old house will tumble down

When the leaves start to fall in autumn

And the rain starts to drip from the trees

There's an old, old man

Who walks in the garden

And his head is bowed in memory

Well they say he built the mansion

For the love of his woman

And they planned to be married in the fall

But her love did wither

In the last days of summer

And the house stood empty after all

When the leaves start to fall in autumn

And the rain starts to drip from the trees

There's an old, old man

Who walks in the garden

And his head is bowed in memory

And his head is bowed in memory

11. Streamline (featuring Tommy Emmanuel)

Well I'm a streamline lover, I go from town to town

I'm a streamline lover, well I go from town to town

I'll be knockin' on your door, baby

When the sun goes down

Well I'm a smooth operator, backwoods Romeo

Well I'm a smooth operator, backwoods Romeo

Can't see me comin'

But they sure hate to see me go

Well, I walked that road from Mississippi down to Louisian

I walked that road from Mississippi down to Louisian

Everybody says, "Here comes that streamline man"

Got rings on my fingers, wear a John B. Stetson hat

Got rings on my fingers, wear a John B. Stetson hat

Got some rattlesnake shoes, now what do you think about that

Go Tommy

Well I'm a streamline lover, nobody touch my speed

Streamline lover, baby, nobody touch my speed

Lightnin' in a bottle, got everything you need

Well I'm a streamline lover, I go from town to town

I'm a streamline lover, Tommy Emmanuel goes from town to town

Knockin' on your door, baby

When the sun goes down

12. Uncloudy Day (featuring Mavis Staples)

Whoa, they tell me, of a home, far beyond, the sky

Whoa, they tell me, of a home, far away, so far away

Whoa, they tell me, of a home, where no storm, clouds rise

Whoa, whoa, they tell me, of an uncloudy day

Well, well, well, Lord

13. Boogie Woogie Down The Jerico Road

Well, Joshua was a holy man

Charismatic leader of a backwoods band

A real righteous rocking rolling cat supreme

Called to shine a light on Moses' dream

Stranded out in Egypt land

For 40 years, stuck in the sand

Where everybody's wheels were turnin' slow

Here comes the story of the Jericho

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

God said, Joshua, go cat go"

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

Well, an angel appeared with a tremolo sword

Divine appointment from the Lord of Lords

First thing he said was "Joshua away with the shoes

You on Holy ground, ain't that good news"

From almighty God, the one you thanked

When he split the waters at Jordan's banks

You can step on into his perfect plan

And walk all the way to the promised land

Boogie woogie down the Jericho Road

Boogie woogie down the Jericho Road

Hurry up boy, don't be slow

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

Well

The same Holy Ghost, no more, no less

That led that wanderin' tribe through the wilderness

Filled Jericho's city with glittering sparks

Put power on the people, lit a fire in their hearts

Don't know you it was a sight to see

Joshua leading God's army

Six times one they had marched around

But on the seventh day, the walls came down

When the dust settled down on that gospel blast

The promised land appeared at last

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

Come on Josh, you got miles to go

Boogie woogie down the Jericho road

14. Long Walk To Heaven

Well I'm one day, one day closer

Than I've ever, been before

One mile, one mile further

Down this tired and weary road

This old world, is full of some trouble

So many heartaches, I have known

Like a pilgrim, I keep on movin'

Cause this world, is not my home

It's a long walk

It's a long walk

It's a long walk to Heaven

And I'm too close, to turn around

Sometimes every, mile's a mountain

And each step, Lord I'm countin'

Until I see, the lights beyond

That crystal sea

Lead me on, lest I falter

Until I kneel down, at your altar

Then, father, please, oh please,

Have mercy on me

Well, well, well, well

Well it's a long walk

It's a long walk

It's a long walk to Heaven

But I'm too close to turn around

Turn around

To turn around

15. That Gospel Music

Well, I was headed home from work, when my car broke down

I started into walkin', when I heard a joyful sound

It was gospel music

Comin' from a church house down the street

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

Yeah gospel music put a little spring down in my feet

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

I ran right up the steps, poked my head in the door

It sounded so good, man, I had to have some more

Of that good gospel music

That the choir did sing

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

Yeah that gospel music sure made my joy bell ring

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

I fell down on my knees, I felt a rumble in my soul

I thought it was a thunder bolt, it felt like rock'n'roll

But it was gospel music

Man that choir did rave

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

Yeah gospel music, that's how my soul got saved

(Hallelujah brother, hallelujah man)

Well, I got my car repaired and off to work I go

And you can hear it while I'm drivin' on my radio

I play that gospel music

Sounds so good to me

(Hallelujah brother, Hallelujah man)

That gospel music will surely set your troubles free

(Hallelujah brother hallelujah man)

(Hallelujah brother hallelujah man)

(Hallelujah brother hallelujah man)

(Hallelujah brother hallelujah man)

16. The Gospel Way

Well, I'm pressing on

To that upper strand

To the unseen world

Made by my God's hand

Mysterious kingdom

Beyond the sky

Where I'll live forever

After I die

The prayers that I pray

Like mumbling words

Come back to me answered

From the spirit world heard

In the midst of this life

Full of woe and despair

Somebody's listening

Somebody up there

Father above

Hear my plea

Look down with love

Have mercy on me

Lead me on

Day after day

And keep me in

The gospel way

(The gospel way, gospel way)

The cares of this world

Are fading away

Little by little

Day after day

There's coming a time

When I'm gonna fly

Into forever

To the sweet by and by

And I'll see my mother

(Yes, oh yes)

And father there too

(Yes, oh yes)

So many friends

(Yes, oh yes)

To say, "How do you do"

(Yes, oh yes)

I want to see Jesus

(Yes, oh yes)

and hear him say, "Child"

(Yes, oh yes)

"Come and sit down beside me"

(Yes, oh yes)

"And rest for a while"

Father above

Hear my plea

Look down with love

Have mercy on me

Lead me on

Day after day

And keep me in

The gospel way

(The gospel way)

(Gospel way)

The gospel way

17. Mercy #1 (featuring Duane Allen)

And when I make it to Heaven on high

I'll be satisfied, I'll be satisfied

And when I'm walking right by his side

I'll be satisfied, I'll be satisfied

Ooooo

Ooooo

Ooooo Mercy

Ooooo

Mercy

18. Keep On The Firing Line

If you're in the battle for the Lord and right

Keep on the firing line

If you and my brother surely you must fight

Keep on the firing line

There are many dangers that we all must face

If we die still fighting, it is no disgrace

Cowards in the service will not find a place

So keep on the firing line

Oh you must fight (must fight)

Be brave (be brave)

Against all evil

Never run or even lag behind

If you would win for God and the right

Just keep on the firing line

When we get to Heaven, brother, we'll be glad

Keep on the firing line

How we'll praise the Savior for the call we've had

Keep on the firing line

When we see the souls that we have helped to win

Leading them to Jesus from the path of sin

With the shout of "welcome," we will all march in

So keep on the firing line

Oh you must fight (must fight)

Be brave (be brave)

Against all evil

Never run or even lag behind

If you would win for God and the right

Just keep on the firing line

Oh you must fight (must fight)

Be brave (be brave)

Against all evil

Never run or even lag behind

If you would win for God and the right

Just keep on the firing line

19. My God Will Make A Way For Me

I open the door to God's golden stair

A place I can go, he waits for me there

And in the midst of His beauty

And splendor I stand

He says, "Welcome my child

You're a part of my plan"

And as I walk through this world

I know this to be

My God will make a way for me

The creator of life and the keeper of stars

Knows every struggle and strife

The truth in my heart

He loves as he watches

He knows and he sees

And offers his blessings

For me to receive

And as I walk through this world

I know this to be

My God will make a way for me

And as I walk through this world

Through eternity

My God will make a way for me

A way for me

He'll make a way for me

20. Good News

(Instrumental)

21. Angels Rock Me To Sleep

My heart is sad, my soul is weary

While traveling on life's rugged plain

The sky is dark, the day is dreary

It seems all earthly help is vain

Angels rock me to sleep

(Angels rock me to sleep)

In the cradle of love

(In the cradle of love)

Bear me over the deep

(Bear me over the deep)

To the Heaven above

(To the Heaven above)

When the Savior shall call

(When the Savior shall call)

And the shadows shall fall

Angels rock me to sleep

Angels rock me to sleep

Angels rock me to sleep

In the cradle of love

I see a light beyond that river

I see two loving outstretched arms

Oh I hear a voice so warm and tender

Saying, "Child, now come on home"

Well, (well,), well, (well)

Angels rock me to sleep

(Angels rock me to sleep)

In the cradle of love

(In the cradle of love)

Bear me over the deep

(Bear me over the deep)

To the Heaven above

(To the Heaven above)

When the Savior shall call

(When the Savior shall call)

And the shadows shall fall

Angels rock me to sleep

Angels rock me to sleep

Angels rock me to sleep

In the cradle of love

Oh the cradle of love

The cradle of love
