The Devil’s Music

You got me in deep

You got me deep in a sleep

Deep, deep in the night

Ain’t nothing here, ain’t no light

Jus’ a man sitting around without a clue

Listening to the Devil playin’ his blues

Casting me under a spell

Bringing me down into hell

Shaking me up all around

With his guitar and that electric sound

I’ve been shook up all night long

Hearing the words to his song

You got me so deep in a sleep

I can’t drink, I can’t eat

It ain’t an easy rest

But life ain’t no trifling test

It’s been some time now

Since my heart’s been void of light

Just waiting on the night

To come back and restore my sight

The Devil’s got me by the ears

Playing rockabilly tunes of fear

He got me in way too deep

Giving me no way to ever fall asleep

So, if I die before I wake

Don’t promise the Devil my soul to take

Soulhouse Blues

Soulhouse Blues

Don’t drop that nine from your hand until your skin learns how to feel

Just keep shaking it along till the pain recedes for real

We’re going down by the bay

To feel the breeze while in song

Jump around and play

We’ll be singing it all night long

 

You need some soul in your soul

So, I’m pleased to take you home

You’re feeling down all around so you ain’t leaving here at all

Dance to the beat of the sound after I plug into the hole

I’m going to loosen the goose and pour some mousse, don’t refuse

And by the end of night, baby, I’ll be on a roll

 

When you wake in the morning things won’t seem so clear

Don’t be alarmed little darling just shush and have a beer

I’m going to tell everything that I did, so don’t have no fear

Once you realized what I know you’ll come back here for more

‘Cause when you’re roaming in the sun, have some fun and let go t’cold

Life’s better and it’s whole when you stop to heat within your soul

Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin

Stairway to Heaven

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
