Blue Corpse

BLUE CORPSE
(Corwood 0753)

I Passed by the Building
I passed by the building you were working in
I wanted to step inside it
I wanted to lie in your arms again
I passed by the building that you live in
And I wanted to die
I just stood there and cried
More than the way I felt
Was the way I was gonna cry
For loving you
I passed by the building where you sleep
And I
I wanted to sigh
At the sweet smell of your loving
But I just weep at the morning
I just weep

CF
Where do we go
I’m fallin’ down to the river
I’m gonna climb another mountain
I’m going down to the mountain
I’m coming up from below
I’m gonna climb as high as I can
I ain’t got no other place to go
Down to the river
I’m going down to the river
I’m goin’ to spread myself around
I’m goin’ down to the river
Spread myself around
Not much time
Not much time
Not much time
I’m going down
I’m goin’ down
I’m goin’ down
I’m goin’ down

Variant
And so we go
Like times of old
To stay on one road
Or choose another
I just don’t know
Which way to go
When we were small
And not so tall
We didn’t know
Which road to go
I just don’t know which way to go
I think I’ll follow
To follow

Part II

Ahh ahh ahh ahh ah ah

Your Other Man
Well I guess your mind’s made up
Well I guess there’s not much left to do

Walk up the stairs

House of the Rising Sun
My mother was a tailor
She sewed these new blue jeans
My father was a gambler
Down in New Orleans
The only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
The only pleasure he gets out of life
When he’s on a drunk
I know the song I sing well
I spend my time in Hell
Ahhh down at the Rising Sun
So mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend my life in
Sin and misery
Down at the Rising Sun

Only Lover
You never smoke a cigarette when you are doing something
Only when you are half doing it
You are a teenage runt with a lot of cream, Sparky
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Heard a car pull in softly
Waiting for the footsteps
Has she followed me here
The tent I went to wasn’t mine
It was a cantaloupe’s
Cantaloupes are so good to eat
When you dream of your Johnny in a shower
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
I love you my lady
I love you like I do
Why you make me so blue
A’kill me
Kill me
A’kill me
A’kill me
kill me
I think I’m a gonner
When I see one of your shoes
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
You’re the reason I live
You’re the cause of my death
I love a dark angel
You took my success
Ahh will you take my failure
After Arnie took a pill from the bottle
He wasn’t near the same he ought to be
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
I hear you bought a new dress
Red the color of your kiss
Darlin’ are you with me now
A’kiss me
Kiss me
A’kiss me
Kiss me
A’kiss me
Ohhh it’s my time to die
When I think of your black lips
Ahhh gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Found a painted pony in your breast
Can I tell you the rest
I love you goddess
Listen mister can you be my monkey
Feel my pulse take a stab at my arm
I wasn’t meant to have a garden
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Jezebel, you’re my favorite
In your country I roam
Listen to me now lady
Worst I had to tell you was I followed you here
First you made me promise that I wouldn’t leave
Then I found my freedom
Gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Lost some lovely people on the way
You gave them back I heard you say
You’re my only lover
Light a kangaroo I’m only half doing what I do
Jesus stares me from the wall
And I think I like your bosom
Aww gone floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Are you in my music
Ah lord I think it’s hard to tell
Ahh has she followed me here

Quinn Boys
D’ja ever go down to see the Quinn boys
When I walked out of there I went chaa
Meet you in the Bowery
Goodbye Beacon Hill
Hello misfortune I’ve got time to kill
Time to kill
I’ve got time to kill
Spend all of my days roaming all the ways
To live and be and see the sun
See the moon in dark June
Kiss the sand and ocean salt
Take my brother by the hand
It’s you and I demand

One Minute
It looks like one minute to me
Just relax folks
Just relax
That’s right
Settle back in your chair
Listen to the music
Close your eyes and watch the pretty colors dancing around in your head
Follow the music
