Little Boy Blues 01/27/11 - FtLd My daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl know it’s so Because he never does The things he says he’ll do He shouts, he hits and he roars And tells my mamma she’s a whore But he does it all Just to help me know That although he sure likes to yell And makes our lives a living hell Deep down inside He’s always smiling at me Cause everything he does by day Is to make sure that we can stay Together and be happy All the time And every night he comes around To play the games that make no sound That no one else Knows we ever do Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because he never does The things he says he’ll do Now other children like to play Outside by the light of day But I am not Allowed to leave our home Though my mother shouts that I should My daddy vows I never will Until the day That I am fully grown Cause the world is fully run by fools Who are so pitiful and cruel They will hurt you in Each and every way And though deep down I wish I could My daddy yells I never should Play with those who lie And who betray But at night when we’re all alone My daddy makes me cry and moan And promise that I’ll do everything he says Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because he never does The things he likes to say And if others should ever ask I just turn and give them my back To prying eyes that have No right or place Our lives they are our own And I promised and I swore That I’d do anything My loving daddy said So no one should ever know What goes on in our home sweet home Cause they’re too dumb And full of jealousy Yet somehow word gets around And in the end it all comes down To what it is That you want to believe But I’ll never let them see How my daddy played with me And the places where I bruised And where I bleed Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because of all the things He said and did to me Yet now I am all alone Cause bad men came to our home And took my daddy off In tears and shame And although it could be hard I never wanted us to part Cause love is always Full of hurt and pain Now they say I’ll never see My daddy smiling down on me To use me And abuse my like a toy But there’s still just one mystery That somehow got away from me And I need to know To share my daddy’s joy If he said in all the world That I’m his only little girl Why does everyone else say I’m a little boy Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And I know that I’ll see him no more Cause of what my daddy really did to me What was it that he wanted me to be What happens next when I am... Daddy verse: 28.49.57 - 45.54.65 47.56.67 - 28.49.57 (all 2x) chorus: 45.54.65 - 47.56.67 (2x) 28.36.47 - 49.57.68 - 47.56.67 copyright 2011 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

I’ll Be On My Way 1993 - NMB The meat is grinding in the store downstairs The traffic’s piling up in the air The prisoners line up wondering where They’re going to Hey how ‘bout you And all the misery played out last night Has disappeared with the morning light And love is just the chance you’ll run into Someone who Is someone new And I can’t tell you where the secrets lay They’ve been swept into the ocean They’ve been driven far away And all your deeds are legend Though your maps are in decay Won’t you please give me direction And I’ll be on my way I’ll be on my way And if I made a promise that I did not keep To take you with me when I leave Don’t argue with the one who takes your lead It’s not fair Oh don’t you care Cause we’re growing up and sometimes getting down Pick up your pieces and keep moving around It’s not enough to say you knew me then No not when Once again it’s a living And I can’t tell you where the secrets lay They’ve been swept into the ocean They’ve been driven far away And all your deeds are legend Though your maps are in decay Won’t you please give me direction And I’ll be on my way I’ll be on my way And god is turning out a million more each day The devil just laughs because he loves to take away And if their reasons don’t make no sense It’s okay It’s okay So go ahead and leave your heart outside Then lock your door and see if you can hide From something that’s growing deep down inside I just pray Help me through another day And I can’t tell you where the secrets lay They’ve been swept into the ocean They’ve been driven far away And all your deeds are legend Though your maps are in decay Won’t you please give me direction And I’ll be on my way I’ll be on my way verse: C - 32.42 - Am C - 32.42 - Am C - 32.42 - Am F - G chorus: F - G - C 32.42 - Am F - G 32.42 - 21.32.62 F - G copyright 1993 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

If I Were 02/02/12 - FtLd If I were Errol Flynn I’d be swinging from a rope Yeah I’d be swash-buckling If I were Charlie Chaplin I’d make you laugh, I’d make you cry I’d make you think again Yet somehow Things seem so different today Not like when Mickey Rooney said Come on kids lets put on a play But sometimes I just don’t know what to say So won’t you please tell Katharine Hepburn Everything will be okay If I were the King and Queen of Spain I could wave my hand and send you off To discover anything If I were Mahatma Gandhi I could open up your heart And make you really see Yet somehow Things seem so different today Not like when Molly Brown turned around To save who she could save But sometimes I just don’t know what to say So won’t you please tell Katharine Hepburn Everything will be okay If I were Rock Hudson Living in a world without AIDS And without sin If I were Martin Luther King Trying to help everyone Share in the dream Yet somehow Things seem so different today Not like when Micky Mantel’s bat Took the Yankees all the way But sometimes I just don’t know what to say So won’t you please tell Katharine Hepburn Everything will be okay verse: G - Amf2 (Bm) - Am7 - C (2x) chorus: 35.45.53 - 45.55.63 35.47.57 - 23.35.45 35.45.53 - 45.55.63 36.45.54 - 33.42.53 copyright 2012 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Copper Penny (Living On The Edge) 09/10/85 - WPB Copper penny and silver wine Hold you breath and walk on by There is no respect When you’re living on the edge City streets and sewer lines Drive all night to find the time For relief from the sledge That’s hammering your head Silver bullets and looking glass See the knights as they charge past Search the sky that’s overcast To know what you regret But if you think it is Then I think it’s alright Cause if you think it is Then it must be alright Ricochets and true romance Grab your hat and circumstance Try to be recalcitrant To what’s between your eyes Live it up and live it down Your friends they come and go around But I will be with you my love Til the moment you decide And when you leave you’ll linger on In my mind and in this song Until I rearrange your host Of memories and lies But if you think it is... (break) Happy days and longer nights Feel the sweat, taste the bite Circulate your mischief That captivates your life Hold my hand, feel my chest Make commitments you’ll forget And if the morning comes too quick You can always recognize There’s no way in and no way out You live each moment with some doubt Until you do negotiate The terms by which you die But if you think it is... (repeat first verse) verse: 52.32 - 52.31 G+21 - G D+13 - D 42.23 - A7 chorus: Eb3 - Eb5 52.32 - 52.31 (all 2x) inter: 52.32 - 52.31 F#m - Glong 42.23 - 42.22 (bandana style) copyright 1985 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Night Shift 03/14/14 - FtLd Get off the night shift Throw them dice slick And tell me which way Things go today Shoe shine boy got hot tips Stock market’s where it’s All happening Or at least that’s what they say Cause I work the night shift Throwing switch after switch I keep things moving along their way Yeah I work the night shift Through all the darkness And then I sleep away the rest of the day Red lights blinking Got me thinking that There’s got to be a better way Sun shine all the time But never on my dime Feels like I’m living in an early grave Cause I work the night shift....
