Whitesnake ! Discography   Members
Whitesnake

After recording two solo albums, former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed Whitesnake around 1977. In the glut of hard rock and heavy metal bands of the late '70s, their first albums got somewhat lost in the shuffle, although they were fairly popular in Europe in Japan. During 1982, Coverdale took some time off, so he could take care of his sick daughter. When he re-emerged with a new version of Whitesnake in 1984, the band sounded revitalized and energetic.

Slide It In may have relied on Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple's old tricks, but the band had a knack for writing hooks; the record became their first platinum album. Three years later, Whitesnake released an eponymous album which was even better. Portions of the album were blatantly derivative ó "Still of the Night" was a dead ringer for early Zeppelin ó but the group could write powerful, heavy rockers like "Here I Go Again" that were driven as much by melody as riffs, as well as hit power ballads like "Is This Love." Whitesnake was an enormous international success, selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone.

 

Before they recorded their follow-up, 1989's Slip of the Tongue, Coverdale again assembled a completely new version of the band, featuring guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. Although the record went platinum, it was a considerable disappointment after the across-the-boards success of Whitesnake. Coverdale put Whitesnake on hiatus after that album. In 1993, he released a collaboration with former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page that was surprisingly lackluster. The following year, Whitesnake released a greatest hits album and it seemed likely that Coverdale was going to form a new version of the band. ó Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Come an' get it
(Coverdale)

Are you woman enough
To take a man like me
Baby, I know what you got
You make it easy to see... 

Now I wanna give you my loving
Believe me, babe, it's true
Maybe more than you bargained for,
But, now it's up to you... 

So if you want it, come an' get it,
I got something for you...
If you want it, come an' get it,
I'll leave it up to you...

Are you a women who takes
Anything you want
Or the kind who says that you do
Then tell me later you don't... 

Now I wanna give you my loving
I knew the moment we met
You gotta take me as you find me, baby,
Cos' what you see is what you get... 

So if you want it, come an' get it,
I got something for you
If you want it, come an' get it,
I'll leave it up to you...

Are you woman enough
To take a man like me
Baby, you know what I got
I make it easy to see 

So if you want it, come an' get it,
I got something for you
If you want it, come an' get it,
I'll leave it up to you...

Hot stuff
(Coverdale)

I'm ready for you,
Are you ready for me
I've got a burning heart,
It won't let me be
I feel the hunger, my spirit yearns,
I've got to feed the fever
Of a love that burns 

I walk the street 'round midnight,
Looking for a little hot stuff,
I can't get enuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Hot stuff, hot stuff 

I'm hard to handle,
Too hot to hold
I can't seem to satisfy
My heart an' soul
I need a woman to set me free,
A little Miss Understanding
To feel the need in me 

I walk the street 'round midnight,
Looking for a little hot stuff,
I can't get enuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Can't get enuff, hot stuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Can't get enuff 

I'm ready for you,
Are you ready for me
I've got a burning heart,
It won't let me be
I feel the hunger, my spirit yearns,
I've got to feed the fever
Of a love that burns 

I walk the street 'round midnight
Looking for a little hot stuff,
I can't get enuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Hot stuff, hot stuff,
Hot stuff, hot stuff,
Hot stuff, hot stuff,
Hot stuff, hot stuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff,
Can't get enuff, hot stuff,
I just can't get enuff, hot stuff 

Hot stuff, can't get enuff hot stuff...

Don't break my heart again
(Coverdale)

I'm gonna take it to the limit of my love,
Before I turn and walk away
I've had enough of holding on
The promises of yesterday
Every day of my life, it seems,
Trouble's knocking at my door,
It's hard to try and satisfy
When you don't know what you're fighting for 

Time and again I sing your song,
But, I've been runnin' on empty far too long
I've had enough holdin' on to the past,
Make no mistake, it could be your last 

Don't break my heart again, like you did before
Don't break my heart again, I couldn't take anymore 

I never hide the feeling inside,
And though I'm standing my back to the wall,
I know that even in a summer love
A little bit of rain must fall
But, every road I take I know
Where it's gonna lead me to,
Because I've travelled every highway
And they all keep coming back to you 

Time and again I sing your song,
But, I've been runnin' on empty far too long
I've had enough holdin' on to the past,
Make no mistake, it could be your last 

Don't break my heart again, like you did before
Don't break my heart again, I couldn't take anymore
Don't break my heart 

Don't break my heart again, like you did before
Don't break my heart again, I couldn't take anymore


Lonely days, lonely nights
(Coverdale)

I've been burning my bridges
For too many years,
Drowning the sorrow
Of too many tears
Women and whiskey
Are my only friends,
One gives me strength,
One just pretends 

I've been waiting my whole life
For things to work out right,
But, those lonely days turn into lonely nights
Yes, It do 

I've heard all the wisdom
Of prophets and seers,
It don't soothe my passion
And it don't ease my fears
Burned by love
And blinded by snow,
Bad luck and trouble
Are with me wherever I go 

I've been waiting my whole life
For things to work out right,
But those lonely days turn into lonely nights
Lonely days, lonely nights,
Lonely days, lonely nights 

Lonely days, lonely nights,
Someday babe, it's gonna be alright
Lonely days, lonely nights,
Someday babe, it's gonna be alright for me, for me 

Lonely days, lonely nights,
Someday babe, it's gonna be alright...



Wine, women an' song
(Coverdale/Lord/Marsden/Moody/Murray/Paice)

I ain't an educated man
As all you Fleet Street preachers know,
It's just the simple things in life
Get my motor running, ready to go
If I can make you smile
I will raise my glass,
An' if you don't like it
Then, baby, you can kiss my ass!
You can tell me it's wrong,
But, I love wine, women an' song

Give me a good time woman,
An' a love potion bottle of booze
'Cos I got a juke box heart
Full of honky tonk rhythm an' blues
You better lock up your daughter, your sister too,
If get in my way, I'm gonna rock an' roll over you,
Ain't nothing you can do 

You can tell it's wrong,
But I love wine, women an' song
Wine, women an' song, talking 'bout
Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song
You get what you can
But, don't take too long
Wine, women an' song, 

Give me a rock an' roll band
With a mean an' dirty blues guitar,
Take me to a dance hall palace
With a twenty four hour bar
Then you better lock up your daughter, your sister too,
If you get in my way, I'm gonna rock an' roll over you,
Ain't nothing you can do 

You can tell me it's wrong,
But I love wine, women an' song
Wine, women an' song, talking 'bout
Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song
You get what you can
But, don't take too long,
Wine, women an' song 

Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song,
Wine, women an' song
You get what you can
But, don't take too long,
Wine, women an' song 

Wine, women an' song


Child of Babylon
(Coverdale/Marsden)

When I heard the sound of thunder
On the day that I was born,
I was blinded by the lighting
An' baptised in the storm
My father started crying
When he saw what he had done,
But, my mother started praying
Have mercy on my son,
He is a child of Babylon 

I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, nowhere to run
I am a child,
A child of Babylon 

When I've fooled around so many times
When I've known it ain't been right,
But, I paint it all in colours
When it really should be black and white
I sail my ship through muddy waters,
Try to open every door,
When I saw the seven wonders
It left me wanting more 

I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, got no place to run
I am a child,
A child of Babylon 

On my day of judgement
I know how it will be,
I'm prepared to meet my maker
With no hope for charity
I'll stand alone and pay the price
For everything I've done,
'Cos there ain't guardian angel
For a child of Babylon 

I am a child,
A child of Babylon
I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, got no place to run
I am a child,
A child of Babylon 

Child of Babylon


Would I lie to you
(Coverdale/Marsden/Moody)

Hey girl, if you want me,
Come an' get me
Don't hang around
Or we could spend the night sleeping alone

If you could change your style, for a while,
An' look in my direction,
Tell me do I look the kind of guy
Who takes advantage of a women like you

Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to you
Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
Baby, I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to, would I lie to, would I lie to you

Hey girl, if you need
Some love an' affection,
I'll whisper all the sweet, sweet nothings
I know you little girls like to hear
If you would change your mind
We could find a night of satin sheet action,
I promise I won't do anything
Baby, unless you wanted me to 

Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to you
Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to, would I lie to, should I lie to you 

I don't wanna sleep alone tonight,
After all you put me through.
I've spent the whole night searching
For a woman just like you.
Look in my eyes ... tell you lies
Then, baby, it's just because I want you to stay 

Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to you.
Would I lie to you, would I lie to you
Baby, I would do anything that you want me too,
But, would I lie to, would I lie to, would I lie to you...



Girl
(Coverdale/Marsden/Murray)

I have never known a woman
Who loves me like you do,
You treat me like a dog
An' make me shake my tail for you
I know the game you're playing
When you're turning all your tricks
It's written on your face
You just want your business fixed 

No, I don't need a crystal ball
To see what's in your mind
If I don't give you what you want
You treat me so unkind,
But if I'm good and give you love
You throw me down a bone,
But if I'm bad you make me sad
An' leave my love alone 

Pretty little crazy white girl,
Just a pretty little crazy white girl,
Pretty little crazy white girl
Girl, girl
Pretty little crazy white girl 

I know, baby, you ain't fooling
With all your high class schooling,
You want everything your own way
If I could, I would
Do every little thing a good man should,
Baby, I'd really give it to you
Every day 

Pretty little crazy white girl,
Just a pretty little crazy white girl,
Pretty little crazy white girl
Girl...

Mean mistreater,
There ain't no one to beat you,
But you treat me so bad
I've never known a woman
Who loves me like you do,
You treat me like a dog
An' still I shake my tail for you 

Pretty little crazy white girl,
Just a pretty little crazy white girl,
Pretty little crazy white girl
Girl, girl...

Pretty little crazy white girl,
Girl, she treat me so bad
Pretty little crazy white girl,
Girl, come on baby
Pretty little crazy white girl,
I love the way you make me
Girl...
Pretty little crazy white girl,
Girl...
Pretty little crazy white girl

Hit an' run
(Coverdale/Marsden/Moody)

I've never had a home sweet home life
An' I don't want a nine to five,
So many women I know
Think they can tie me down,
But, I will never let them take me alive
I hit an' run, hit an' run, hit an' run, hit an' run, hit an' run. 

Now some women say they don't want nothing,
But a sweet talkin' bull of a man,
I've heard it before, I can't hear it no more
'Cos they all take whatever they can, 

But, still I want a heartbreaker,
A love maker, a soul shaker,
A women who can turn me on,
For a just little hit an' run, hit an' run

She can be a love stealer,
A double dealer, a free wheeler
As long as she can turn me on
For just a little hit an' run,
A little bit of hit an' run

You can keep your lock and key
No ball and chain can harness me.
Take me home tonight,
Love and treat me right
But, in the morning you'll find me gone,
I hit an' run. 

Hit an' run...

Till the day I die
(Coverdale)

When ice cold winds of winter
Chill me to the bone,
An' thoughts of summer breezes
Turn my heart to stone
That's when I need a hand to guide me,
When it's more than I can bear
A shoulder I can cry on,
Someone to lead me there 

An' give me love,
Give me love,
Give me love
Till the day I die,
Till the day I die

Slowly I awaken
To the Weavers plan for me,
To drift upon the waters
Of my own uncertainty,
To look for a companion
Who will share my destiny,
A guiding hand to understand
An' walk to road with me

An' give me love,
Give me love,
Give me love
Till the day I die,
Till the day I die 

I wanna be the master of my destiny,
I never wanna crawl an' beg for no sympathy,
When everything I have is yours,
An' all I ask of you 

Is give me love.
Give me love,
Give me love
Till the day I die,
Till the day I die

I never wanna be the first
To show I'm down,
But, I'm never gonna wear the frozen smile of a clown
When everything I have is yours
And all I ask of you 

Is give me love
Give me love,
Give me love
Till the day I die,
Till the day I die

Give me love,
Give me love,
Give me love.
Till the day I die
Give me love,
Give me love,
Give me love.
Till the day I die

Till the day I die...

Crying in the rain

A black cat moans
When he's burning with the fever
A stray dog howls
When he's lonely in the night
A woman goes crazy
With the thoughts of retribution
But, a man starts weeping
When he's sick and tired of life

I keep on dreaming dreams of tomorrow
Feel I'm wasting my time
Lighting candles in the wind,
Always taking my chances
On the promise of the future
But, a heart full of sorrow
Paints a lonely tapestry

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
'Cos no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
Crying in the rain...

I can never deny
All the sweet things I have tasted
Tho' I've been mistreated
I keep coming back for more,
I know where I'm going
There's no hope of absolution
I can't seem to separate
The good times from the bad

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
'Cos no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
'Cos no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain

Crying in the rain...

Fool for your loving
(Coverdale/Marsden/Moody)

I was born under a bad sign,
Left out in the cold
I'm a lonely man who knows
Just what it means to lose control 

But, I took all the heartache
And turned it to shame, 
Now I'm moving, moving on,
And I ain't taking the blame 

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man 

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more 

I'm tired of hiding my feelings,
You left me lonely too long
I gave my heart, and you tore it apart,
Oh, baby, you done me wrong 

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man 

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more 

I'll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more 

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more 

Fool for your loving no more...

Here I go again
(Coverdale/Marsden)

I don't know where I'm going
But, I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An' I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again 

Tho' I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on,
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams 

An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

I'm just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love's sweet charity
An' I'm gonna hold on
For the rest of my days,
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams 

An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a Drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time 

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go...

An' I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time 

An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams 

An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time...

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go,
Here I go again...

Is this love
(Coverdale/Sykes)

I should have known better
Than to let you go alone,
It's times like these
I can't make it on my own
Wasted days, and sleepless nights
And I can't wait to see you again 

I find I spend my time
Waiting on your call,
How can I tell you, baby
My back's against the wall
I need you by my side
To tell me it's alright,
'Cos I don't think I can take anymore 

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
'Cos it's really got a hold on me,
A hold on me... 

I can't stop the feeling
I've been this way before
But, with you I've found the key
To open any door
I can feel my love for you
Growing stronger day by day,
An' I can't wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms 

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
'Cos it's really got a hold on me,
A hold on me...

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for... 
Is this love or am I dreaming,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for...

Judgement day
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

The night is gone,
The time has come
To find a new day has begun,
An' it promises to stay
To soothe the pain of wasted years
An' kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way 

And from the darkness
Comes a smile,
That reaches out for many miles,
Touching everyone.
No more shadows of the past,
Your spirit free to fly at last,
Shining in the sun

Like the rolling thunder,
I feel the power of love,
It's a gift from heaven
And the Lord above

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

Take it easy, take it slow,
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go,
Places never seen before
'Cause I love you, an' I need you,
I'll do my best to please you,
My love can open any door 

When you hear the thunder
In your darkest night,
I'll be there to hold you
When the lightning strikes 

So don't you worry,
You can ease your mind
'Cause we'll be dancing
At the end of time

Who loves you, who needs you,
Who'll do his best to please you,
I love you, I need you
I'll get down on my knees 

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

So don't you worry, baby
On the road to Judgement Day
Who loves you, who needs you
On the road to Judgement Day 

So I love you, and I need you
My love can open any door
My love can open any door...


Looking for love
(Coverdale/Sykes)

I'm tired of waiting
An' closing my eyes
I'm asking myself
Why is it all my horizons
Are so far away

I look in the mirror
Don't like what I see
In my reflection
A stranger is staring at me
Looking for love

The love of a woman
The needs of a man
I try so hard to belive
But I don't understand
The search goes on

But over the mountains
Across the sea
I know love is waiting
I hear it calling to me
Calling my name

I'm looking for love all around me
Looking for love to surround me
The love that I need
To rescue the state of my heart

Alone again, It's always the same
I've just been marking my time
Since the day I was born
With no one to blame

The candle is burning
It's way down low
I just need someone
To show me the way to go
Which way to go.

I'm looking for love all around me
Looking for love to surround me
The love that I need
To rescue the state of my heart

I'm looking for love
An' finding only heartache
Looking for love
An' finding only heartache
I'm looking for love to rely on
Looking for love, a shoulder to cry on
I'm looking for love
To rescue the state of my heart...


Love ain't no stranger
(Coverdale/Galley)

Who knows where the cold wind blows,
I ask my friends, but, nobody knows
Who am I to believe in love,
Oh, love ain't no stranger

I looked around an' what did I see
Broken hearted people staring at me,
All searching 'cos they still believe,
Oh, love ain't no stranger

I was alone an' I needed love
So much I sacrificed all I was dreaming of,
I heard no warning, but, a heart can tell
I'd feel the emptiness of love I know so well 

Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger
Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger to love, no, no, no 

Can't hold the passion of a soul in need,
I look for mercy when my heart begins to bleed
I know good loving an' I'm a friend of pain,
But, when I read between the lines it's all the same

Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger
Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger to love 

So who knows where the cold wind blows,
I ask my friends, but, nobody knows
Who am I to believe in love,
Lord, have mercy,
Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger 

I was alone an' I needed love
So much I sacrificed all I was dreaming of,
Can't hold the passion of a soul in need,
I look for mercy when my heart begins to bleed 

Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger
Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger to love 

Love ain't no stranger,
Love ain't no stranger,
I ain't no stranger...

Now you're gone
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Now you're gone
I can feel my heart is breaking,
An' I can't go on
When I think of the love that you've taken 

In the night I pray for your embrace,
Every time I close my eyes
I can't escape your face
You're out of sight,
But, always on my mind,
I never realised
My love could be so blind 

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all I need,
So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it another try
One more time 

But, now you're gone
There's an emptiness closing around me,
An' I can't go on
When all I have left is the memory 

In the night I call out your name,
I wake up in a cold sweat
An' I'm all alone again
I need your love
Much more than I can say,
I realise without you
I can't face another day 

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind
You're all that I want,
So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it
Another try
One more time,
Baby, just one more time 

Now you're gone
I can feel my heart is breaking,
An I can't go on
When all of my love has been taken 

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind 

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind...

Shake my tree
(Coverdale)

You talk too much,
Never saying what's on your mind,
It's written on your face,
An' in the words you hide behind
I know what you want,
I can see what you're looking for,
I know what you want from me,
An' I'm gonna give you more 

I'm gonna slide it in
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
Slide it, in baby... 

Sometimes you seem
Just like a stranger to me,
But, all the games you play
Make it so easy to see
You're looking for love,
Tho' you try to deny,
The things you put me through
Tell me what I've got to do to you

I'm gonna slide it in,
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in... 

You talk too much,
Always treating me so unkind,
I know what I've got to do,
To get me some peace of mind 

I'm gonna slide it in,
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
Slide it in,
Right to the top
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it,
Slide it in, slide it in,
Right to the top, baby...

Slow an' easy
(Coverdale/Moody)

You keep on pushing, babe,
Like I've never known before
You know you drive me crazy, child,
An' I just wanna see you on the floor
I wanna superstitious woman
An' she got a superstitious mind

I can't see you, baby,
I can't see you anymore, no more
You keep on loving me
Like I've never known before
I wanna superstitious woman
With a superstitious, a superstitious mind, an' I don't mind, baby 

My heart is beating faster, babe,
It's beating like a big bass drum
You know you got me speeding, child,
Faster than a bullet from a gun
You're a superstitious woman
An' I got a superstitious mind, an' I don't care 

So take me down slow an' easy,
Make love to me slow an' easy
I know that hard luck an' trouble
Is coming my way,
So rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone,
Rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone 

I don't care about, oh,
I don't care about love, no more
The way you keep abusing me
Oh, I can't take no more
I wanna woman
She got a superstitious mind 

So take me down slow an' easy,
Make love to me slow an' easy
I know that hard luck an' trouble
Is coming my way,
So rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone,
Rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone,
Rock me 'til I'm burned 

So take me down slow an' easy,
Make love to me slow an' easy
Take me down slow an' easy,
Rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone

Take me down slow an' easy,
Make love to me slow an' easy
I know that hard luck an' trouble
Is coming my way,
So rock me 'til I'm burned to the bone...

Still of the night
(Coverdale/Sykes)

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more 

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store,
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
And I can't take no more, no, no

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat...

In the Still of the Night...
In the Still of the Night...
Over here baby...

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the Still of the Night,
In the cool moonlight,
I feel heart is aching
In the Still of the Night... 

Tell me here baby

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door...
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more... 

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat. 

In the Still of the Night... 

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night...

Sweet lady luck
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

You hold all the Aces,
I never get the chance to deal
Flick of the wrist and you cut me down,
I'm spinning like a roulette wheel

You say that love's a gamble
But, you play with loaded dice
You hide behind a good girl smile
With a heart stone cold as ice 

But, I want it, I need it
If you don't give it I'll steal it,
I'll take it all and walk away
Lady luck,
You're a loser in the game of love, sweet lady luck
Who you gonna call when it all falls down on you,
sweet lady luck... 

You can't stop your dealing
'Cos it's a crying shame,
When the winner takes it all
And never ever takes the blame 

But I want it, I need it
If you don't give it I'll steal it,
I'll take it all and walk away
Lady luck,
You're a loser in the game of love, sweet lady luck
Who you gonna call when it all falls down on you
Uh, what you gonna do?
Lady luck 

I need your love, I need it now,
I've got to have it anyhow,
Sweet lady luck...

I can't win for losing,
It's tearing me apart
So I'll play the joker to your Queen of Broken Hearts 

But, I want it, I need it,
If you don't give it I'll steal it
I'll take it all and walk away
Lady luck,
You're a loser in the game of love, sweet lady luck
Spinning like a roulette wheel, sweet lady luck
You're a loser in the game of love, sweet lady luck 

I need your love, I need it now,
I've got to have it anyhow 

Sweet Lady Luck..
Sweet Lady Luck..
Sweet Lady Luck..
Lady Luck!


The deeper the love
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

When I look back
On everything I've done
I know you must have cried
A river of tears,
But, you were there
When I was feeling low
To walk me through my darkest fears

So when the sun goes down
An' those nights grow colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder

An' the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion 

There were times
I almost let you go
When I thought I needed to break free,
But you were there
To whisper in my ear
Why don't you share my dreams with me. 

So when the sun goes down
An those nights are growing colder
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder. 

An' the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion 

I don't mind, what you're doing to me,
I don't mind, 'cause you're all I can see
I don't mind, baby, you mean the world to me

When the sun goes down
An' those nights are growing colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder, baby, baby, baby. 

So When the sun goes down
An' those nights are growing colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder. 

'Cause the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion... 

I never gonna let you go,
In my heart, I know.
I love you, I love you.
Oh baby, I really love you...

You're gonna break my heart again
(Coverdale/Sykes)

Now I know
I've seen that look
On your face before
When you realised
All the memories
Walked right out the door... 

Now it's eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
No more hiding behind the truth
I'm gonna get exactly
What's coming to me 

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it 

Now you say
I took advantage of you
When you never knew the score
But, you should know
We've been this way
One thousand times before

You told me once,
You told me twice
It's down to me, girl
To pay the price
But, this time's the last time
That's for sure...

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it
Yes you are 

You talk of how our love
Was meant to be
And all the time
You sacrificed for me...

So how could I forget it,
Why should I regret it
'Cos when you told me you loved me
I knew it was lies
So no more crying, no more goodbyes,
'Cos this time's the last time
That's for sure...break my heart...

Now you say
There is no one in the world
Can get the better of you
An' you should know
'Cos you never made it easy
With the pain you put me thru 

I told you once
I told you twice
It's down to you, girl
To pay the price
'Cos this time's the last time
That's for sure...

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it 

I just can't take anymore,
No more, no more, no more...

Ain't No Love
In The Heart Of The City

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.
Baby, since you been around.

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity, child
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.

Every place that I go,
Well, it seems so strange.
Without you love, baby, baby,
Things have changed.
Now that you're gone
Y'know the sun don't shine,
From the city hall
To the county line, that's why

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.

(Solo)

Every place that I go,

Come On

I don't go looking for trouble,
It's always coming my way,
But, I've been looking for you,
And like the summer sun, you welcome my day.

So come on, come on,
And give your man some rock 'n' roll,
And get yourself some sweet rock 'n' roll.

I'm just a soldier of fortune,
Must be the gypsy in me.
I ain't along when I say
I never needed love so badly before.

Hear me singing "Come on, come on"!
Give your man some rock 'n' roll,
And get yourself some sweet rock 'n' roll.

(Solo)

I keep singing, "Come on, come on"!
"Come on, come on"!

Come on and get some sweet rock,
Come on and get some sweet rock,
Come on and get some sweet rock 'n' roll.
Must be the gypsy in me,
Can see the angel in you.

Lie Down (A Modern Love Song)

You got the smile of a Monalisa,
Know it all an' giving nothing away.
You make the sins of a vestal virgin,
Look nothing more that a roll in the hay.

So lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.
Lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.

You give an air of the Dolce Vita,
Society's made a queen out of you.
Casanova couldn't take all your virtue,
But, rock 'n' roll is gonna steal it from you.

So lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.
Lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.

Come on, girl, it'll be alright,
Easy does it nice and slow.
Woah, you know, mama, that tonight's the night,
Come on and let your feelings show.

Take a look in the mirror,
Tell me what you see.
If it ain't sweet surrender
You can blame it on somebody, not the devil in me.

So lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.
Lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.

(Solo)

Take a look in the mirror,
Tell me what you see.
If it ain't sweet surrender
You can blame it on somebody, not the devil in me.

Lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care.
Lie down, I think I love you,
Lie down, I think I care...

Might just take your life
(Blackmore/Coverdale/Lord/Paice)

I got more than I asked for,
there ain't nothin' I need.
I took all till I had more,
I'm always takin' the lead

Old man shakin' dice down on the street,
try'n to make a livin' somehow
but I'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
and I'm gettin' ready right now

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life

I've been called by many names
and all of them are bad
I can take it all the same,
it's all I've ever had

I've got somethin' that you can't get
but one thing you can see
gettin' there ain't easy
but it sure was hard for me

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life

Every time I take a look
there's someone close behind
They never used to make a pass,
the things that crossed their minds

Now they tell me that it's all right
and they want to be my friend
They're ridin' on my back
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life,
might just take your life

Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need


Mistreated
(Blackmore/Coverdale)

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind.

Trouble

I was raised a gambler's son
And before I could walk,
I had to learn how to run.
And I never, never ever
Played a loaded dice.
But, I rolled a lot of women
With a heart as cold as ice.

On the run again
Looking for a place to hide,
Everywhere I look there is trouble,
Always coming my way,
Trouble always coming my way.

Baby I'm lonely, I'm out of control,
I need someone to understand
The badness in my soul.
Though I never, I never
Stole another man's wife
But, I fooled around plenty enough
And I got what I paid for.

On the run again
Looking for a place to hide,
Everywhere I look there is trouble,
Trouble always coming my way.

Trouble.

(Solo)

On the run again
Looking for a place to hide,
Everywhere I look there is trouble,
Trouble always coming my way.

Trouble always coming my way, trouble always coming...


Ain't gonna cry no more
(Coverdale/Moody)

Rising with the morning sun
I turn to greet the dawn,
Knowing I must face another day
Sleepless night behind me,
Just a memory of pain,
My heart has always been a cross to bear 

Lord I know the sunshine,
But, I feel the tears of rain
Falling down to wash my sins away 
I'll try hard to remember
So I won't be fooled again,
Hey, ain't gonna cry no more today 

All around me, shadows fall,
Tho' day has just begun,
I realise I'm on my own again 
Memories of broken dreams,
As distant as the sun,
Are drifting like an echo in the wind 

Lord, I know the sunshine,
But, I feel the tears of rain
Falling down to wash my sins away 
I'll try, hard to remember
So I won't be fooled again,
Hey, ain't gonna cry no more today 

Babe, I thought about it,
But, it just ain't done good,
You hold my heart and soul within your hand 
All the time, you're in my mind,
I never thought you could be so blind,
Maybe someday I will understand 

Lord, I know the sun shine,
But I feel the tears of rain
Falling down to wash my sins away
I'll try hard to remember
So I won't be fooled again,
Hey, ain't gonna cry no more today, no more 

Hey, mama you drive me crazy,
Knowing you're my hearts desire,
Why'd you go and hang me up this way
You've given me love, given me love,
Now tell me what you were thinking of,
Why'd you go and steal my soul away 

Lord I know the sunshine,
But, I feel the tears of rain
Falling down to wash my sins away 
I'll try hard to remember
So I won't be fooled again,
Hey, ain't gonna cry no more today 

I ain't gonna cry no more... 

Lord I know the sunshine,
But, I feel the tears of rain
Falling down to wash my sins away 
I'll try hard to remember
So I won't be fooled again,
Hey, ain't gonna cry no more today
Ain't gonna cry no more 

Hey, I ain't gonna cry no more today...

Lovehunter
(Coverdale/Moody/Marsden)

I need a woman to treat me good
And give me everything a good woman should
Everyday and every night
She'd be waiting on her brown-eyed boy 
To come and treat her right

I'm a love hunter baby
Sneaking up on you,
I'm a love hunter baby
Sneaking up on you
I'm gonna give you all my loving
And use my tail on you

In my time I've been a back door man,
I've taken everything I could
But, I've given all I can
I don't want no woman
To weep or moan,
I'm looking for a sweet heartbreaker
And I'm never gonna leave her alone 

I'm a love hunter baby
Sneaking up on you,
I'm a love hunter baby
What you gonna do?
I'm gonna give you all my loving
And use my tail on you

I'm a love hunter baby
Sneaking up on you,
I'm a love hunter baby
What you gonna do?
I'm gonna give you all my loving
And use my tail on you 

'Cos I'm a love hunter baby,
I'm a love hunter baby... 

I'm a love hunter baby
Sneaking up on you

I'm sneaking up on you!

Ready an' willing
(Coverdale/Lord/Moody/Murray/Paice)

I wanna be loved,
Don't wanna be teased.
I don't want no woman
Getting down on her knees. 

I'm ready an' willing
To reach for the sun,
So I can get me some loving
Before I'm gone. 

I want more, more, more, more,
I want some more
Sweet satisfaction to soothe my soul. 

I want you to rock me
All night long.
Rope an' ride me, baby,
Do me wrong. 

Roll me over, make be bleed,
I'd dance with the devil 
To get what I need.
I need more, more, more, more,
I need some more of that
Sweet satisfaction to soothe my soul. 

I get this crazy feeling inside my soul,
And it's driving me insane.
I get this crazy feeling,
Can you feel it, baby,
It's driving me out of my mind.
I'm talking about sweet satisfaction,
I'm ready an' willing, sweet satisfaction.
I'm ready an' willing, sweet satisfaction.
Sweet satisfaction, sweet satisfaction.
I'm ready an' willing. 

I get this crazy feeling inside my soul,
And it's driving me insane.
I get this crazy feeling,
Can you feel it, baby,
It's driving me out of my mind.
I keep on looking for 

Sweet satisfaction, I'm ready an' willing.
Sweet satisfaction, I'm ready an' willing.
Sweet satisfaction, I keep on looking.
Sweet satisfaction, I keep on looking...

Sweet talker
(Coverdale/Marsden)

I can tell by way you walk,
You give it all away
By the sweet way that you talk, yes you do 

You got long legs, a black girl sway,
The way you shake your booty
Gives your schoolgirl game away, yes it does 

You're just a sweet talker, bad daughter,
An' you've just begun
The bitch is in heat,
So you better run 

I know you know
You got what it takes,
You got the fever,
But, you give me the shakes, yes you do 

Straight out of Lolita 
With nothing to lose, 
When I got your number
My juke box blew a fuse, yes it did 

You're just sweet talker, bad daughter,
An' you've just begun
The bitch is in heat,
So you better run, you better run,
So you better run, you better run
Or you better hide 

Sweet talker, bad daughter,
You've just begun
The bitch is in heat
So you better run, you better run,
You better run, you better run,
Or you better hide 

I can tell by way you walk,
You give it all away
By the sweet way that you talk, yes you do 

You got long legs, a black girl sway,
The way you shake your booty
Gives your schoolgirl game away, yes it does 

You're just a sweet talker, bad daughter,
An' you've just begun
Sweet talker, bad daughter,
An' you've just begun
The bitch is in heat,
So you better run

Take Me With You

Every time I see my baby home,
I wanna kiss a little better so I get stoned.
Gonna spread her pretty legs so I can see,
Sweet lip honey be the death of me
And I will discover you'll be my midnight lover,
Oh babe, bring it on home to me.

Sometimes when I'm feeling low,
I go looking for a lover where the bad girls go.
Sorry little girl, If you can't stay,
Your red light mama gonna show the way.

And then a certain madness,
Will 'crease my heart with sadness
Oh babe, bring it on home to me.
Take me with you I will give you anything a woman needs,
Take me with you I will give you anything a woman needs.

I know love and what it means,
It's a skinny little girl in tight ass jeans.
I love to hear'em moan and cry,
'Cos God made men to satisfy.
And with the fire returning,
I feel the fever burning
Oh babe, bring it on home to me.

Take me with you I will give you anything a woman needs,
Take me with you I will give you anything a woman needs.
Oh, take me with you.

(Solo)

Every time I see my baby home,

Walking in the shadow of the blues
(Coverdale/Marsden)

I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it you can never understand
So many times I thought about it
And now I know just what it means to be a man 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

All of my life I've had a strange reputation,
I've been the black sheep of the family all along
I never know if in my heart I'm really guilty
But, I've been accused of never knowing right from wrong 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

My father said you're crazy,
He said what you gonna do?
I left with my guitar and said
I'll leave it up to you

I'm gonna live the life I love
And live the life I choose,
And I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it I will tell you once again
All of my life I've been caught up in a crossfire,
'Cos I've been branded with the devil mark of cain 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues,
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues

Long way from home
(Coverdale)

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
To be at your side
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me, baby, when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do 

I'd been looking for love for so long when I found you,
Too many years I walked alone
When I touch you inside I feel you burning me with fire,
Believe me baby when I say
I will feed the flame

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do 

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do 

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Check in on any night time flight, I don't mind
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me baby when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do 

It's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do,
It's a long long way from home

Help me thro' the day
(Russel)

Help me through the day,
Help me through the night
Baby your sweet loving
Will make everything all right

Help me through tomorrow
When stormy weather comes
Lord make me realize
That you're my woman 

I can see so much pain
Deep inside your eyes
I know the feeling,
Someone hurts you
When someone makes you cry

Help me through the day,
Help me through the night
Babe you make me realize
You're my woman

Help me through the day,
Help me through the night
Baby your sweet loving
Will make everything all right

Help me through tomorrow
When stormy weather comes
Lord make me realize
You're my woman,
You're my woman 

Help me through the day
And be my woman,
Help me through the night
And be my woman...

You 'n' me
(Coverdale/Marsden)

Well it's five in the morning
When will you be home,
I'm tired of waiting here baby
All on my own
All I got for comfort is some cheap red wine
But, the thought of what you're doing gives me no peace of mind

You 'n' me, it's got to be just you 'n' me,
Can't you see, baby
Can't you see what you're doing to me

I know those page three girls
In the playboy books,
Ain't got nothing on you
In the way that you look
But, an eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
When you get home
You better give me some truth 

Tell me no lies
When I ask you the questions,
Tell the truth
Your lies ain't gonna make it no more
Tell me no lies,
Baby you're no exception to the rule,
Because I've heard it all before
And babe believe me I never forget 

You 'n' me, baby baby
Just you 'n' me,
Can't you see, baby
If you don't stop what you're doing to me
I'm gonna do it to you

Tell me no lies
When I ask you the questions,
Tell the truth
Your lies ain't gonna make it no more
Tell me no lies,
Baby you're no exception to the rule,
Because I've heard it all before
And babe believe me, I never forget 

You 'n' me, baby baby
Just you 'n' me,
Can't you see, baby
Can't you see what you're doing to me

You 'n' me, baby baby
Just you 'n' me,
Can't you see, baby
If you don't stop what you're doing to me,
I'm gonna do it to you!

Mean business
(Coverdale/Moody/Marsden/Murray/Dowle)

You're taking a walk on the wild side
If you're gonna take a chance with me,
I'm gonna make you take a look on the inside
And you might not like what you see
So don't you knock on my door
If you don't want an answer
Or gimme a beat
If you don't want a dancer

I've got my love gun loaded,
I've got you in my sight,
I never take no for an answer,
So you'd better say yes tonight
I told you the score
Right from the start,
You'll never get to heaven
If you break my heart

So if you don't mean business
Knock on someone else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean business
Staying alive if you fool with me

You say you want my money,
I say you've got no sense,
If you just want to bleed me dry
Stay on your side of the fence
No mercy you can see
'Cos seven to eleven made a fool out of me

So if you don't mean business
Knock on someone else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean business
Staying alive if you fool with me 

You're taking a walk on the wild side
If you're gonna take a chance with me,
I'm gonna make you take a look on the inside
And you might not like what you see
So don't you knock on my door
If you don't want an answer
Or gimme a beat
If you don't want a dancer

So if you don't mean business
Knock on someone else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean business
Staying alive if you fool with me...

Outlaw
(Coverdale/Lord/Marsden)

When I left my home
I was not much more than a child,
My mother started crying
She knew that I was born to be wild

'Cos I was looking for the bright lights of the big city,
A red hot town where the girls are pretty

I took to the highway,
Chasing my dream down the line
Heading out for trouble,
Never finding my peace of mind
'Cos I been run out of town so many times before
An' usually kind of places where I can't go back no more 

Outlaw - born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun 

I never find it easy trying to keep the feeling alive,
I've always been a dreamer,
Dreamers find it hard to survive
When they're living in the bright lights of the big city,
A red hot town where the girls are pretty 

Outlaw - born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun
Outlaw - born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun 

Outlaw - born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun
Born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun
Outlaw, outlaw,
Man on the run will always take chances for fun

Rock an' roll angels
(Coverdale/Moody)

I'm goin' looking for a woman
With the night in her eyes,
Someone to take all the small talk
And laugh at the lies
A high heeled double trouble backstage queen,
Who gets what she wants
And knows where she's been

Alright show your hand,
I'm looking for the promise of a one night stand
So I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight

You can see in my face
Just what I'm hoping to find,
I want a twelve bar beauty
With a one track mind
I don't drive babe, but, I can steer,
We got the green light let's get out of here 

Alright show your hand,
I'm looking for the promise of a one night stand
So I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight,
I said I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight

When I saw you across the floor,
I could feel I wanted more
I get lonely in the night,
I would do anything, anything you say,
Do anything to take the pain away
So those lonely nights will be alright,
Don't worry honey, we can put out the light
I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight,
I said I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight 

So I'm looking for a woman who got no shame,
'Cos in the morning there'll be no one to blame.
A high heeled double trouble backstage queen,
Who gets what she wants and knows where she's been. 

Alright show your hand,
I'm looking for the promise of a one night stand
So I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight,
I said I'm going looking for those rock 'n' roll women tonight

Rock 'n' roll women, rock 'n' roll women,
Rock 'n' roll women gonna steal my heart away
Rock 'n' roll women, I said rock 'n' roll women,
I said rock 'n' roll women gonna steal my heart away

Rock 'n' roll women... 

Talkin' 'bout rock 'n' roll women, rock 'n' roll women,
Rock 'n' roll women gonna steal my heart away
Rock 'n' roll women, rock 'n' roll women,
I said rock 'n' roll women gonna steal my heart away...

We wish you well
I'm sad to say it's time to go
Until we meet again along the road
Remember this on your journey home,
When you hear the thunder roar you're not alone

We wish you well, we wish you well,
In times of trouble may your hearts be strong
We wish you well, we wish you well,
Until we meet again,
We wish you well...

Carry your load
(Coverdale)

I take what I want,
And I got my eye on you
It's late in the evening
What are you gonna do 

I got the place,
If you got the time,
I got the motion, baby,
If you got the mind 

So wise man tell me
What it means to give and take,
It's double trouble,
But, it can ease a little heartache 

So you can carry your load
Down the long, winding road
Carry your load, down the long, winding road 

All I'm asking, all I wanna do is just
Put a little love in your heart,
Put a little love in your heart 

I know what I want,
And it's close to the bone
Sooner or later, baby,
I'll be taking you home 

You got the cool,
But, you give me the heat
You got the music, baby,
But, you give me the beat 

So wise man tell me
What it means to give and take,
It's double trouble,
But, it can ease a little heartache 

So you can carry your load
Down the long, winding road
Carry your love,
Down the long, winding road 

All I'm asking, all I wanna do is just
Put a little love in your heart 

Wise man tell me

But, it can ease a little heartache 

So you can carry your load
Down the long, winding road
Carry your love
Down the long, winding road
You got to carry your load
Down the long, winding road 

Blindman
(Coverdale)

I was dreaming of the past,
Why do good times never last
Help me Jesus, show the way
I can't hold on another day 

I was hungry, felling low,
I just couldn't make out which way to go
Chasing rainbows that have no end,
The road is long without friend 

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul 

Just a young man looking homeward,
Watching the sun go down again
Across the water, the sun is shining,
But, will it ever, will it ever be the same 

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul 

I need somebody, I need someone,
I need somebody to call my own
Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
But, like a blindman
I don't know, I don't know,
I don't know where it's coming from 

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul 

I need somebody, I need someone,
I need somebody to call my own
Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
But, like a blindman
I don't know, I don't know,
I don't know where is coming from

Love man
(Coverdale)

I've spent close on sixteen years
Watching your pretty flower grow
Little girl, little girl, now tell me
Everything you know
About the oceans and the skies,
The mountains and the trees,
And then I'm tell you about
The birds and the honey bees 

'Cos I'm a love man, yeah, yeah, yeah,

I'm a hootchie cootchie man
And I'm doing all I can
I just love to tease,
I would do anything to please you, baby 

Sweet little angel, give me your hand,
Feel for my heartbeat, baby,
Then you'll understand
About the bees and the honey,
The bluebirds in the trees,
And you'd know, just to get close to you
I would get down on my knees 

I am a love man, yeah, yeah, yeah,
I am a love man That's what I am
I'm a hootchie cootchie man

Doing all I can
I just love to tease,
I would get down on my knees 

So come a little closer,
Let me whisper in your ear
How the good Lord in His Wisdom
Made you so, and put you here 

He played a little game
Called The Apple and the Snake,
When the lady took her first sweet bite
The Snake made no mistake 

He was a love man, yeah, yeah, yeah,
And I am a love man
I'm a hootchie cootchie man
And I'm doing all I can,
'Cos a love man needs his loving everyday
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I am a love man

Black and blue
(Coverdale/Moody)

You never call me, babe,
Until your man is gone,
I know it's you
When I pick up the telephone 

You ask me how I am
And if I'm doing well,
When all you want from me
Is just to ring your bell 

Take your time, we can do some lines,
'Cos it's alright
We can feel fine drinking midnight wine,
'Cos it's alright 

Black and blue, black and blue,
I said come over here, baby,
And love me till I'm black and blue 

You got the key to love
Dressed in your innocent smile,
You know you touched me baby,
So won't you stay for a while 

And take your time, we can do some lines,
'Cos it's alright
We can feel fine drinking midnight wine,
'Cos it's alright

And love me till I'm black and blue

And love me till I'm black and blue
Black and blue, black and blue,
I said come over here, baby,
And love me till I'm black and blue
I said come over here, baby,
And love me till I'm black and blue 

Black and blue...

She's a woman
(Coverdale/Marsden)

She got everything I need,
She makes me smile, she makes me bleed
'Cos she's a woman 

She got the end, she got the means,
She's in my heart and in my dreams
An' it makes me cry I wanna make her mine

She ain't black, but, she got soul,
She ain't young, she ain't old,
She shine like silver, burn like gold
'Cos she's a woman, she's a woman 

She got everything I need,
She got comfort, she got speed
She's a woman, she's a woman 

She do me bad, she do me good,
She got the Gypsy in her blood
Cos' she's a woman, she's a woman 

She ain't black, but, she got soul,
She ain't young, she ain't old,
Shine like silver, burn like gold 
She's a woman, she's a woman 

She got a fire in her eyes,
I know she sees through all my lies,
'Cos she's a woman, she's a woman 

I know I'm the danger zone
If I leave her all alone
'Cos she's a woman, she's a woman

She ain't black, but, she got soul,
She ain't young, she ain't old,
Shine like silver, burn like gold
She's a woman, woman,
She's a woman, she's a woman

She's a woman, woman,
She's a woman 

She got everything I need,
She make me smile, she make me bleed
She's a woman, she's a woman 

She got the end, she got the means,
She, make me shiver in my jeans
'Cos she's a woman, she's a woman 

She ain't black, but, she got soul,
She ain't young, she ain't old
She shine like silver, burn like gold
'Cos she's a woman, she's a woman 

She's a woman...

All in the name of love
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Some people tell me
The blues ain't bad,
But, I've never know anything
Make me feel so sad...
Running on empty, hurting to the core,
When everything don't mean nothing any more... 

From a distance
Every little thing looks fine,
But, the closer you get
You see the make up,
Cracked and lined...
Somewhere there's a rainbow
With a pot of gold,
But, by the time you get there
It's been taken and sold... 

So I keep saying, baby...

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end...

In my room
There are no shadows in the wall,
'Cause I closed up the window
So no light gets in at all.
It's a bad situation,
With no end in sight,
A heartache deep as the ocean
And darker than the night... 

So I keep saying to you, baby, 

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end... 

With no one to lean on
You pray to the Lord above,
But, we keep hurting each other
In the name of love...

All in the name of love... 

With no one to lean on
You pray to the Lord above,
But, we keep hurting each other
In the name of love... 

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end... 

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end... 

All in the name of love... 

Restless heart
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Restless heart, restless mind,
I'm tired of wasting,
My precious time. 

There are times in my life,
I don't know witch way to turn,
When everything I touch
I get my fingers burned...
Dreams to ashes, ashes to dust,
When all that glitters
Is dull with rust...

Restless heart, restless mind,
I'm tired of wasting,
My precious time...

I'm torn and tattered,
Shattered and worn,
I've had enough
Trying to live my life
In the eye of the storm...
Every heartache
Leaves a scar on my face,
Somebody reach out
Or throw me a line,
Get me out of this place...

Restless heart, restless mind,
I'm tired of wasting, wasting,
My precious time...

Oh, so tired. 

Restless heart, restless mind,
I'm tired of wasting,
My precious time...

Restless heart, restless mind,
I'm tired of wasting, wasting,
All of my precious time...

Restless heart, restless mind,
So I'm tired of wasting, wasting,
All of my precious time, time, time

Restless heart...


Crying
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I smell trouble
And where there's smoke
There must be fire...
You sow your seeds of jealousy
And the flames
Just keep on growing higher...

This can't be love anymore,
I know, 'cause I've done
Everything I can...
And all that you can do
I pour gasoline
On a burning man... 

Tears of rage, tears of pain,
Burning my eyes,
I realise, I'm crying...
Crying... I'm crying
Bitter tears falling like rain... 

Lies...
I can never understand,
You play your cards under the table,
Dealing me a losing hand... 

Tears of rage, tears of pain,
Burning my eyes,
I realise, I'm crying
Crying... I'm crying
Bitter tears falling like rain...
Crying, always crying, crying
Bitter tears falling like rain... 

I want to be there
When your demons come to call...

I'm gonna finish what you started, baby,
Watch you burn little house down,
Burn it down, down, down...

Then I'll see you crying,
Crying... Crying...
Bitter tears falling like rain...

Stay with me
(Pagowoy/Weiss)

Where did you go
When things went wrong, baby,
And who did you run to,
To find a shoulder
To lay your head upon.
Baby, wasn't I there,
Didn't I take good care of you. 

Oh no, I can't believe you leaving me...

Stay with me, baby,
Stay with me, baby...
Won't you stay with me, baby,
I can't go on...

Who did you touch
When you need tenderness.
I gave so much
And in return I found happiness.
Baby, what did I do
Maybe I was too good, too good for you. 

No, no, I can't believe you leaving me. 

Stay with me, baby,
Stay with me, baby.
Won't you stay with me, baby,
I can't go on. 

Remember,
You said you're always gonna need me,
Remember,
You said you'd never, ever leave me,
Remember, remember, I'm asking you, begging you. 

Stay with me, baby,
Stay with me, baby...
Won't you stay with me, baby,
I can't go on, can't go on...

Stay with me, baby,
Stay with me, stay with me, baby.
Won't you stay with me, baby,
I can't go on...

You're so fine
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I want you so bad,
The thought is driving me mad
Like a cat on the prowl,
You come when you want
And not when I call

So sly, so pretty,
I wanna steal all the keys to your city
Tight skirt, skinny leg,
You make a bad dog sit up and beg

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine all mine,
'Til the end of time,
Baby, you're so fine 

You're so hot with body heat,
You cause a fire walking down the street
You got class, you got style,
The girls don't like it,
But, the boys go wild

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me 

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine 

Dance little sister,
Spinning on a dime,
Shake a shimmy little twister

I'm gonna make you,
I'm gonna make you mine,
Mine all mine,
You're so fine 

I want you so bad,
Just the thought is driving me mad,
I wanna know what you'll do,
Baby, baby, I can't wait
To get my hands on you

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me 

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine
Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine all mine
You're so fine, you're so fine
You're so fine, you're so fine
You're so fine...

Your precious love
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I'm far from home,
And tired of this place,
I miss your good, good love
And your sweet embrace
Can't sleep at night
With you on my mind,
I just wanna run to you, baby,
Leave it all behind 

'Cause it seems so long
Since I heard your song,
I'm coming home to you, baby,
Back where I belong

Your precious love,
That's all I need,
Angel spread your wings
And bring it on home to me

Sometimes in my life
I don't know what to do,
Tho' I'm weak for myself
I try to be strong for you.
You're there when I need you,
After all these years,
So I send you this letter, baby,
Written in tears

'Cause it seems so long
Since I heard your song,
I'm coming home to you, baby, baby,
Back where I belong

Your precious love,
That's all I need,
Angel spread your wings
And bring it on home to me

'Cause it seems so long
Since I heard your song,
I'm coming home to you, baby,
Back where I belong

Your precious love,
That's all I need,
Angel spread your wings
And bring it, bring it, bring on home

Your precious love, your precious love,
That's all that I need.
Angel spread your wings and
Bring it, bring it, bring on home
Bring it baby, baby, that's all I want. 

Your precious love
Your precious love, that's all I need
Your precious love, your precious love
Your precious love, that's all I need
C'mon bring on home, baby
Won't you bring on home
I need your love...

Take me back again
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Now I smoke a lot of cigarettes,
And I've been drinking too much wine
You've been patient and understanding,
I guess I went to far this time
I cut you with my drunken words,
So much sharper than a knife,
But, you turned the tables on me, baby,
Just by walking out of my life 

Too late to say I'm sorry,
It won't happen anymore
But, you don't believe a word I say
'Cause you've heard it all before
But, all the same,
Won't you take me back again 

Don't say it's over,
After all that we've been through
Take some time to think about it, baby,
While I sing my song to you
Your suitcase by the back door,
Packed with broken dreams,
When night time comes to call on me,
I'll know what loneliness means
But, all the same,
Won't you take me back again 

Take me back again, take me back again
All I'm asking is forgiveness,
Won't you take me back again
Take me back again, take me back again
All I'm asking is forgiveness,
Won't you take me back again 

But, baby, all the same
Won't you take me back again
Take me back again, take me back again 

But, baby, all the same
Won't you take me back again
Take me back again, take me back again
Won't you take me back again
No, no, no, no, take me back again 

Don't walk away from me baby
I beggin' you please, uh
I beggin' you please, uh
Take me back again
Take me back again

Woman trouble blues
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

The womans name was trouble,
She put the blame on me
I asked her what her game was,
She said "Misery"
I didn't ask no questions,
I did not even pray
When the angel on my shoulder
Said I should walk away 

You promised me heaven,
But, you gave me hell,
Cut me down to the bone
With your kiss and tell
Nobody listens to a word I say,
Still I'm gonna curse you, woman,
'Til my dying day 

I should have known better
With a girl like you
You shame the devil
With the things you do
I was blind, now I see
A lying woman be the death of me

I got woman trouble blues,
Woman trouble blues 

You told me it was meant to be,
But, all you did was put the hurt on me
You made my life a living hell,
And drowned my dreams in the wishing well

I've got woman trouble blues,
Woman trouble blues 

There ain't no doubt I'm going down 

The womans name was trouble,
She put the blame on me,
I gave her what she wanted
And I got misery
Now I don't take much persuading,
At times I'm easily led,
I'm gonna find myself in a prison cell
Thro' the lying things she said 

I'll stand accused on judgement day,
And pray the lord hears what I say
All my life I never learned,
I played with fire and I got burned

Woman trouble blues,
I got woman trouble blues
Woman trouble blues,
Mean ol' woman trouble blues

Anything you want
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I need your love to get me through
All the things I wanna do,
Babe, if you want me to
I'll get on my knees for you
But, you gotta give me a little sign,
You got the same thing on your mind
Every day an' every night
Give me the green light 

An' let it roll, let it ride,
I'll be your dog 'til you're satisfied
I'll be your puppet on a string
Cos' for a spoonful of your sugar
I would do anything
Anything you want,
Anything you need
Anytime at all 

It is so hard for you to see,
I just love your company
An' there ain't nothing I won't do,
Just to prove my love to you 

An' let it roll, let it ride,
I'll be your dog 'til you're satisfied
I'll be your puppet on a string
Cos' for a spoonful of your sugar
I would do anything 

So baby, try to understand
I was born to be your man
Don't keep me knocking at your door,
Just tell me yes or tell me no 

An' let it roll, let it ride,
I'll be your dog 'til you're satisfied
I'll be your puppet on a string
Cos' for a spoonful of your sugar
I would do anything 
Anything you want,
Anything you need 

Can't stop now
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

My mama always said
If you want you should get in fast
While the going's good
Lie like a rug if you fool around
Just don't get caught with your trousers down 

Somebody stop me,
Tie me down
I tell you, baby,
I can't, I can't stop now 

My daddy said son gotta understand,
Don't think twice get it while you can
You can't hang around, you can't stand still,
Cos' if you don't take it another man will 

Somebody stop me,
Tie me down
I tell you, baby,
I can't, I can't stop now
I got an eye for a pretty girl,
An' a sweet tooth for trouble 

I can't stop, can't stop, can't stop now
I can't stop cause it tastes so good,
I got a sweet tooth
For trouble 

No rest for the wicked, no peace of mind
When you got a jukebox heart
Working overtime
I maybe out of touch,
Maybe out of line
But, baby, you got your life
An' I got mine 

Somebody stop me,
Tie me down
I tell you, baby,
I can't, I can't stop now
I got an eye for a pretty girl,
An' a sweet tooth for trouble 

I can't stop, can't stop, can't stop now
I got an eye for a pretty girl,
An' a sweet tooth for trouble


Too many tears
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I used to be the man for you,
Did everything you wanted me to,
So, tell me, baby,
What did I do wrong...

I told you what you wanted to know,
Precious secrets never spoken before.
All I'm asking,
Where did I go wrong...

Some things are better left unsaid,
But, all I do is cry instead,
Now, I've cried me a river,
Thinking how it used to be...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two.
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever.
So, tell me, baby,
Where did I go wrong...

Everything I had was yours,
More than I have ever given before,
So, won't you tell me
Did I hurt you so bad...

I guess I'm fooling myself,
'Cause I want you and no one else.
And I can't understand
Why you're doing these things to me...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two...
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever.
So, tell me, baby,
Where did I go wrong, where did I go wrong...

Now my heart is breaking,
My whole world is shaking,
'Cause I can't understand
Why you're doing these things to me...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two...
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever...
So, tell me, baby, 

Where did I go wrong...





Can't go on
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

I've been feeling sentimental,
In a melancholy way,
Blues siting on my shoulder,
Getting heavier every day... 

Staring into space,
One thing on my mind,
I've been trying to drown
The thought of you
By drinking too much wine...

Then my imagination 
Starts running wild,
I snap my fingers
And you're there by my side...

Can't go on without your love,
There's no song without your love...
Ain't no reason, ain't no rhyme,
Without your love
I'll go out of my mind...

Been getting too lazy,
Letting myself go,
Feeling like a refugee
No one cares for anymore...
Endless lonely days,
I just try to get through,
And there's no escape,
Even when I sleep,
'Cause all I dream is you...

Then my imagination
Gets the better of me,
'Cause you're everywhere I go,
In everything I see...

I can't go on without you love,
There's no song without your love...
There ain't no reason, there ain't no rhyme,
Without your love
I'll go out of my mind...

You make me dance,
You make me sing,
When I'm with you
I can do anything...
When I'm cold,
You keep me warm.
And give me shelter
From the howling storm...

There ain't no reason, there ain't no rhyme,
Without your love
I'll go out of my mind...

Can't go on without your love,
There's no song without your love...

Don't fade away
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

As I stand at the crossroad,
I see the sun sinking low...
With my cross of indecision,
I can't tell which way to go...
Now I have seen the seven wonders
And I have sailed the seven seas,
I've walked and talked with angels,
And danced all night with gypsy queens... 

All in all it's been a rocky road,
Twists and turns along the way...
But, I still pray for tomorrow,
All my hopes, my dreams
Don't fade away... Don't fade away...

I have painted many portraits,
Memories of love and pain,
Though cut down by life's deceptions
I found the strength to start again...

All in all it's been a rocky road,
Twists and turns along the way...
But, I still pray for tomorrow,
All my hopes, my dreams
Don't fade away... Don't fade away. 

Heaven help a man
Trying to make up his mind,
With the darkness closing in,
I feel I'm running out of time...
Shine a light for me,
Help me find the way to go,
And take me where I've never been before...

And so I stand at the crossroad,
Watching the sun sinking low...
With my cross of indecision,
Trying to find the way to go... 

All in all it's been a rocky road,
Twists and turns along the way,
But, I still pray for tomorrow
All my hopes, my dreams
Don't fade away...

Young Blood
(Coverdale/Marsden)

If you feel the rolling thunder
An' your eyes see lightning strike,
Don't be afraid, just call on me
I'll bring you shelter from the night

When the wind is howling
I'll hold you near,
An' soothe your troubled mind
With a little bit of this,
An' a little bit of that
I'll make you leave all your worries behind

Don't try to hold on to what you got,
'Cos I got what you need
Don't try to hold on, for anyone,
Come on, give it to me

Youngblood, you're hot property, youngblood
Youngblood, you're hot property, youngblood
Youngblood... 

When you're burning hot with fever
An' you shake down to your bones,
Don't get yourself into a cold sweat
'Cos it's just your bad blood throwing stones
The devil has got your number
An' he wants you hanging on a line,
But, before the night is over, baby
I'm gonna make you mine

Don't try to hold on to what you got,
'Cos I got what you need
Don't try to hold on, for anyone,
Come on, give it to me

Youngblood, you're hot property, youngblood
Youngblood, you're hot property, youngblood
I'm coming to get you

Don't try to hold on to what you got,
'Cos I got what you need
Don't try to hold on, for anyone,
Come on, give it to me

Youngblood, you're hot property, youngblood... 

I'm gonna make you mine...

Rough an' ready
(Coverdale/Moody)

I take what I want
An' I steal anything that I need,
I would do anything
To get my satisfaction guaranteed

'Cos I'm looking for love,
The time has come
I'm looking for love,
An' I mean to get me some
I'm looking for love right now,
An' I'm rough an' ready

All of you woman better
Lift up your skirts an' run,
'Cos I aim to shoot my pistol
An' fire like a Gatlin gun 

'Cos I'm looking for love,
Believe me when I say
I'm looking for love,
In the worst kind of way
I'm looking for love right now
An' I'm rough an' ready 

Rough an' ready... 

Rough an' ready...

I take what I want
An' I steal anything that I need,
I would do anything
To get my satisfaction guaranteed

'Cos I'm looking for love,
The time has come
I'm looking for love,
An' I mean to get me some
I'm looking for love right now,
An' I'm rough an' ready 

Rough an' ready...

Bloody luxury
(Coverdale)

Now when I first met you
I was rolling along,
Just a bar room crooner
Singing heartbreak songs,
An' I supposed I could never get next to you
But, you seemed quite happy with my company
You kept my body heat steady at 103,
With your mouth full of gimme
An' your body full of much obliged 

It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
Bloody luxury
What you do to me
It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
'Cos no matter what you do to me
It's bloody luxury
Bloody luxury...

You're a five star woman,
An' you know what to give
To fill a part time loser
Full of reasons to live,
But, there's no doubt about it
I'm taking a chance on you
Becos' you get my heart beating heavy,
Make my knees go weak
You get me so damn nervous
I can hardly speak,
But, nothing's gonna stop me
Hanging on my good luck charm 

It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
Bloody luxury
What you do to me
It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
'Cos no matter what you do to me
It's bloody luxury
Bloody luxury...

It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
Bloody luxury
Honey what you do to me
It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
'Cos no matter what you do to me
It's bloody luxury 

Bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
Bloody luxury
Honey what you do to me
It's bloody luxury
What you mean to me,
'Cos no matter what you do to me,
No matter what you do to me,
No matter what you do to me,
It's bloody luxury
Bloody luxury

Bloody luxury...

Victim of love
(Coverdale)

I'm down on love
An' I don't give a damn,
I take my chances
Whenever I can
Like a lamb to the slaughter,
Another sacrifice,
For giving love to woman
With a heart stone cold as ice

I'm down on love
An' I'm clean out of pain,
I ain't no stranger
To the crying game
Too scared to suffer,
An' too blind to see,
But, I played with fire
An' I got what was coming to me

Now, one more heartache
Don't bother me,
Just one more lonely night
To drown in misery 

I am a victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love
Victim of love, victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

I'm down on love
An' I feel like a fool
To beg for mercy
'Cos I broke the rules
So do me no favours
With your cool advice,
I know the losing cost,
An' I'll pay the price 

One more heartache
Don't bother me
One more lonely night
To drown in misery 

I am a victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

Victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

One more heartache
Don't bother me
One more lonely night
To drown in misery 

Victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love...


Love an' affection
(Coverdale/Moody)

Well, I love the way you walk
With your skin tight stride,
You got my eyes wide open
An' my loose tongue tied
A French kiss mouth
An' a smile so bad,
You're the finest woman
That I ever had
So it's alright,
Do anything you wanna do 

Nobody had to tell you
How to make a man's heart bleed,
Your mama always knew
You was born to succeed
I can see the honey juice
Dripping off your lips,
Girl, you got the Midas Touch
It's in your fingertips
But it's alright,
Do anything you wanna do 

'Cos after midnight, I'll be alright
Riding on Cupid's train,
You give me loving, like I've never had before,
I'm back in the saddle again 

So give me love an' affection,
Love an' affection
A little love an' affection
Sure 'nuff goes a long, long way 

You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun,
Your eyes turn on the hypnotising game
You play for fun
I'm caught in your spell
Just like the spider an' the fly,
An' I can't break away from you
No matter how I try
But, it's alright,
Do anything you wanna do 

'Cos after midnight, I'll be alright
Riding on Cupid's train,
You give me loving, like I've never had before,
I'm back in the saddle again 

So give me love an' affection,
Love an' affection
A little love an' affection
Sure 'nuff goes a long, long way 

'Cos after midnight, I'll be alright
Riding on Cupid's train,
You give me loving, like I've never had before,
I'm back in the saddle again 

So give me love an' affection,
Love an' affection
A little love an' affection
Sure 'nuff goes a long, long way 

Love an' affection
A little love an' affection
Baby, baby, love an' affection
Sure 'nuff goes a long, long way 

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
I need love an' affection,
Sure 'nuff goes a long, long way...

Dancing girls
(Coverdale)

I don't need a doctor, I don't need a priest,
I don't need no superstitious cures for my release
I'm flesh an' blood, skin an' bone
A little petticoat company can't get me stoned 

So just gimme the night,
Skin it back to the bone,
Turn on the spotlight 

C'mon, bring on the dancing girls,
Bring on the dancing girls,
Bring on the dancing girls
You can dance, dance,
Dance for me,
Dance for your daddy all night...

I got a one track notion on a feminine squeeze,
A sackfull of love an' a mindful of fantasies
A midnight rider on a stallion steam,
I got an old man's weakness hanging on a young man's dream 

So just gimme the night,
Skin it back to the bone,
Turn on the spotlight 

C'mon, bring on the dancing girls,
Bring on the dancing girls,
Bring on the dancing girls
You can dance, dance,
Dance for me,
Dance for your daddy all night...

So just gimme the night,
Skin it back to the bone,
Turn on the spotlight 

C'mon, bring on the dancing girls, 

Bring on the dancing girls...

Saints an' sinners
(Coverdale/Lord/Moody/Marsden/Murray/Paice)

Get ready for Judgement day
An' the final curtain call,
Don't lie when you testify
'Cos the Good Lord know you're all

Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves,
Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves 

When Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Laying the Law on the line,
He said don't come knocking
On the Pearly Gates
If all you did was have a real good time

Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves,
Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves 

For what we are about to receive
May the Lord make us truly thankful. 

Saints an' sinners 

I stand guilty of a thousand crimes,
An' I suffer temptation still,
Show me a man who won't give it to his woman
An' I'll show you somebody who will

Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves,
Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves 

For what we are about to receive
May the Lord make us truly thankful 

Saints an' sinners,
Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves, 

Get ready for Judgement day
An' the final curtain call,
Don't lie when you testify
'Cos the Good Lord know you're all

Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves,
Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves 

For what we are about to receive
May the Lord make us truly thankful

Saints an' sinners, priests an' thieves

Saints an' sinners...

Gambler
(Coverdale/Galley)

I've been a gypsy
For a thousand years
A victim of circumstance
I go wherever my destiny calls
I'm caught in a game of chance 

I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I wanna get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside 

No fame or fortune,
No luck of the draw
When I dance with Queen of Hearts
A jack of all trades
But, a loser in love
It's tearing my soul apart 

Still I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I wanna get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in
I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in

The jack of diamonds
An' the ace of spades
Try to use me, and to abuse me
It seems the dealer
Wont give me a chance
I'm victim of circumstance 

So I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I wanna get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in
So I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in...

Standing in the shadow
(Coverdale)

I'm running away from a feeling
Hiding my face in the sand
I'm scared to love and lose again
I don't know if I can
I don't need the night to remind me
Where the lonely people go
I try running away from love
But, my heart keeps telling me no 

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love
Too many people
Are standing in the shadow
Standing in the shadow of love 

I've been living so long in the darkness
I know the cold embrace of the night,
When morning comes I close my eyes
'Cos I'm blinded with the light
Taking a chance of a feeling
Is like waiting for a flower to grow,
So I stand at the crossroad, baby,
Wondering which way to go

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love
Too many people
Are standing in the shadow.
Standing in the shadow of love 

I'm running away from a feeling,
Hiding my face in the sand
I'm scared to love and lose again
I don't know if I can
I don't need the night to remind me
Where the lonely people go
I try running away from love
But, my heart keeps telling me no 

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love,
Too Many people
Are standing in the shadow,
Standing in the shadow of love...


Slide It In

You talk too much,
Never saying what's on your mind,
It's written on your face,
An' in the words you hide behind.
I know what you want,
I can see what you're looking for,
I know what you want from me,
An' I'm gonna give you more.

I'm gonna slide it in
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
Slide it, in baby.

Sometimes you seem
Just like a stranger to me,
But, all the games you play
Make it so easy to see.
You're looking for love,
Tho' you try to deny,
The things you put me through
Tell me what I've got to do to you.

I'm gonna slide it in,
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in.

(Solo)

You talk too much,
Always treating me so unkind,
I know what I've got to do,
To get me some peace of mind.

I'm gonna slide it in,
Right to the top,
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
Slide it in,
Right to the top.
Slide it in,
I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in,
Right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it,
Slide it in, slide it in,
Right to the top, baby.



Give me more time
(Coverdale/Galley)

I want you
I need your rhyme,
But, you keep saying, babe,
It's gonna take time
I know the heartache
I put you through,
Believe me, babe,
I'm gonna make it up to you 

You are the reason
I'm down on my knees,
I'm begging you to give me a chance
If only you would
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
To prove it to you...

So many feelings
I can't explain,
I never thought I'd ever cause you any pain
Now I'm alone here
An' I can't hide,
The sun don't shine for me
Without you by my side

You are the reason
I'm down on my knees,
I'm begging you to give me a chance
If only you would
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time
To prove it to you...

An' I'm gonna prove it...

I want you
Right by my side
'Cos you're the only one who keeps me satisfied
I need your loving,
I need your charms,
I can't stand the through of you 
In someone else's arms 

You are the reason
I'm down on my knees,
I'm begging you to give me a chance
If only you would
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time,
Give me just a little more time
To prove it to you...
An' I'm gonna prove it...

Spit it out
(Coverdale/Galley)

I never knew what a kiss could mean
Until the first time I kissed you,
You took my love in the palm of your hand
An' showed me what a woman could do
Now I don't want sugar coated loving
Just silver tongue tenderness,
You gotta give me a certain satisfaction
The kind of love you seal with a kiss 

An' spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it
Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it 

I can remember, I can recall
When I first set my eyes on you,
I'll never forget the thrill of it all
Dreaming of the things we could do
Baby, you must be crazy,
Fooling with a man like me,
'Cos I roll my dice with a heart of ice
An' make it clear to see 

Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it
Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it 

I never knew what a kiss could mean
'Til the first time I kissed you,
You took my love in the palm of your hand
An' showed me what a woman could do
Your sweet caress an' tenderness
Can take the pain away,
The things that you do make a queen out of you
An' make me a king for a day 

If you don't like it, spit it out 

Now I know what your love can do
I'll be hanging 'round your door,
An' I'm gonna love you baby,
I'll give you more than you bargained for 

Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it
Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
If you don't like it 

Spit it out, if you don't like it...

All or nothing
(Coverdale/Galley)

Tonight's the night
To come in out of the cold,
I've waited such a long, long time
I'm getting out of control 
All or nothing
That's what I want from you,
I'm gonna give you everything I got
Now what are you gonna do 

Don't try running away,
You know you get nothing that way
'Cos it's too late,
I'm gonna prove it to you
Too late,
I'll do what you want me to do
Too late,
You can't run anymore
Cos' it's too late for you now 

My heart is burning
An' the fire is hot,
My temperature is rising, rising, rising
I'm ready to rock 
All or nothing
I'm gonna make you see,
I've made up my mind, for sure, this time
You're gonna spend the night with me 

So don't try running away, 
You know you get nothing that way
'Cos it's too late,
I'm gonna prove it to you
Too late,
I'll do what you want me to do
Too late,
You can't run anymore
'Cos it's too late for you now 

So don't try running away,
You know you get nothing that way
'Cos it's too late,
I'm gonna prove it to you
Too late,
I'll do what you want me to do
Too late,
You can't run anymore
'Cos it's too late for you now 

Too late,
I'm gonna prove it to you
Too late,
I'll do what you want me to do
Too late,
You can't run anymore
'Cos it's too late for you now...

Hungry for love
(Coverdale)

I keep hangin' on the promise of love 
Your eyes tell me that I'm gonna see
I feel the hunger like a starving man
Honey, when you stand close to me

I start to shiver, I start to shake,
Chills up an' down my spine,
I'm in the mood for action
In need of satisfaction,
Babe, I'm gonna make you mine

Now I believe in you,
An' everything that you do
'Cos I'm hungry for love,
I'm hungry for love, I'm hungry for love,
I can't get enough, I can't get enough, I can't get enough 

I've got the weakness of an ordinary man
I need the comfort of womanly mind,
But, I get nervous when I think about
So many women an' so little time 

But, I believe in you,
An' everything you do
'Cos I'm hungry for love,
I'm hungry for love, I'm hungry for love,
I can't get enough, I can't get enough, I can't get enough 

I start to shiver, I start to shake,
Chills up an' down my spine,
I get so nervous when I think about
So many women an' not enough time 

But, I believe in you,
An' everything that you do
'Cos I'm hungry for love,
I'm hungry for love, I'm hungry for love,
I can't get enough, I can't get enough, I can't get enough
I'm hungry for love, I'm hungry for love, I'm hungry for love,
I can't get enough, I can't get enough, I can't get enough,
I can't get enough, I can't get enough, I can't get enough 

I'm hungry for love...

Guilty of love
(Coverdale)

I believe my love for you
Is a love that will last forever,
An' I'm here to testify
I'm a prisoner of your heart
Baby don't you believe
When I tell you I love you
That I really mean it,
Don't you walk away,
Don't you turn your back on me 

I'm guilty of love,
It's a crime of passion
Guilty of love,
An' there's no doubt about it,
No doubt about it 

I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree
Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree 

I can never forget the times
When I took what you gave me for granted
So I stand accused
An' I plead guilty to the crime
You can lock me away if you want
Just as long as your arms are around me,
An' I won't mind
If you just throw away the key 

I'm guilty of love,
It's a crime of passion
Guilty of love,
An' there's no doubt about it,
No doubt about it 

Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree
Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree 

Guilty of love...

I'm guilty of love,
It's a crime of passion
Guilty of love,
An' there's no doubt about it,
No doubt about it 

Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree
Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty 

Guilty of love,
I'm guilty of love,
I'm guilty,
In the first degree...

Cheap an' nasty
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Come on baby...

I get so confused,
But, my heart knows you're one of a kind
Leather an' lace, an angels face,
Riding on a one track mind
You're fully loaded with cruise control,
My four wheels rock with your back seat roll 

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me 

I get so excited, babe, when I'm invited
To ride in your limousine,
You drive it every day, burn it every night,
I wonder how you keep it so clean
Smooth accelerator, you get me so loose,
You keep your motor running till I run out of juice 

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me 

Cheap an' nasty 

I never knew it could be this way
An' I never thought I'd ever complain,
But, gimme a second just to catch my breath
Babe, before you do it again 

All the boys call your name
Down the wishing well,
Baby, when you go
You're like a cat out of hell 

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me 

Come on an' do the dirty,
Come on an' do the dirty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me
Come on an' do the dirty with me...

Kittens got claws
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse
You ain't a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to "A" 

Sweet, sweet, child of the street 

Heaven sent, you're an angel dressed in black,
Cool, stiletto strut, you're a drop jaw cardiac
You're the genuine, feline, prettiest girl I've ever seen,
With your thief of hearts smile
You're a certified pleasure machine 

Sweet, sweet, child of the street 

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr 

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack 

You treat me good,
Sometimes you treat me bad,
But, keep it up, honey,
You're the best time I've ever had
No matter what you put me through I must confess,
Oh, you got more style than a brand new XJS 

Sweet, sweet, child of the street 

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr 

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack...

Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse
I know you ain't a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to "A" 

Sweet, sweet, child of the street 

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr 

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She'll blow your stack 

The kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack...

You scratch my back, baby,
An' I'll scratch yours...

Sailing ships
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Do you remember
Standing on the shore,
Head in the clouds,
Your pockets filled with dreams
Bound for glory
On the seven seas of life,
But, the ocean is deeper than it seems 

The wind was with you
When you left on the morning tide,
You set your sail for an island in the sun,
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead,
For the storm has just begun 

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
Lead me to the distant shore 

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass you by 

You cry for mercy,
When you think you've lost your way,
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
So find the strength and you will see
You control, your destiny,
After all is said and done 

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
An' lead me to the distant shore 

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky 
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass,
Sailing ships will pass you,
Sailing ships will pass you by...

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass you by 

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass,
So sailing ships don't pass you,
So sailing ships don't pass you by...

Baby, baby, baby, baby,
You'll find that you're the only one
Can sail your ship across the sky

Slip of the tounge
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Sometime after midnight
The heat begins to rise,
Girl, you'd shame the Devil
With that look that's in your eyes
I know what's on your mind
An' I can't run away,
If I don't give you what you want
There's going to be some hell to pay 

Creeping up behind me
Knocking at my door,
I'll never be too blind to see
Just what you're looking for
You roll me over, make me moan,
Oh, such a velvet touch
You'd melt a heart of stone 

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue 

Just a slip of the tongue 

An' if I want a little love
I gotta take a lot of pain,
Make me think a thousand times
Before I kiss again
I'm waiting on you every day an' every night
If I don't try to satisfy
There's gonna be a fist fight 

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue 

Just a slip of the tongue 

The sun is slowly rising
An' I'm sinking to my knees,
I'm dying just to close my eyes
I'm begging, darlin', please
I hear you calling
An' I'm crawling 'cross the floor
I give you everything I've got
An' still you ask for more 

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue 

A slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
A Slip of the tongue...

Slow poke music
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

Y'know the joint was jumping
Like a dancing fool,
I saw you standing in the corner
Looking oh, so cool
I had a word with the DJ
To make the music hot,
I'm gonna get you on the dance floor
If you are ready or not

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
I'll never leave you alone, I'll never leave you

When you move it to the left,
Or you shake it to the right,
No matter what you do, babe,
It's like dynamite
With your sweet French perfume
An' that criminal walk,
You know you'd melt my ice cream
With your body talk 

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
I'll never leave you alone, I'll never leave you 

I'm gonna shake you down,
Girl, I'm won't do you no harm

Well, you move so fine,
Like stepping on glass,
An' when you give me that smile,
I see lightning flash
East an' West, North an' South,
Oh babe, you're so hot
I'm gonna melt in your mouth

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
Get into it, babe,
Slow poke music,
I'll nail it down to the bone
Slow poke music,
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Girl, I'll never leave you alone...

Wings of the storm
(Coverdale/Vandenberg)

On an' on, the road goes on,
An' it'll go on forever,
Time will show if you and I
Will walk that road together
Through fire an' water, ice an' snow,
Heaven above us, an' hell below,
Holding on, trying to walk the line
With sweet temptation running close behind

I'm talking 'bout love
Ooh, love 

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm 

Everyday an' every night
I keep hoping it'll be all right,
Trying to leave the past behind,
Still looking for some peace of mind
But, destiny brought us together
An' promised us a time that would last forever
Tho' it's all been said before
It's the kind of love worth fighting for

I'm talking about love
Ooh, love 

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep you warm
On the wings of the storm 

On an' on, the road goes on,
An' it'll go on forever,
Time will show if you and I
Will walk that road together 

I'm talking about love
Ooh, love 

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm
My love will keep you warm
On the wings of the storm...

Bloody Mary

When you're waltzing down the High Street
Singing that sweet French perfume song
Looking out for the boys who couldn't sing along.
Moving like a dancer on the ballroom floor,
Sweet ballerina get me begging for more
When you're rolling your eyes behind your Dior shades.

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you, looking for me.

I like sugar in my woman more than saccharine,
Too much sweet talk make a nice boy mean.
All in all, Mary, you're no good for me.
Just like a bee-sting, babe, you're a pain in my heart
Hurting me more and more.
You get me down on my knees when you talk dirty to me.

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you.
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary,
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.

You know that Madame Palm and her five sweet daughters
Couldn't give a man what the doctor ordered.
Ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.

(Solo)

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you.
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary,
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.

You know that Madame Palm and her five sweet daughters
Couldn't give a man what the doctor ordered.
Ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.
I told, ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.

Steal Away

And when the day is done
I'll find you woman, and run,
Don't ask no question.
And you won't get no lies,
And if you steal away,
I'll be your only lover.
And I will love you till the day that I die.

And if you steal away,
I'll turn your night into day
And get you crying like a dog for a bone.
And if you say you will,
I'll be your only lover.
And if you're good,
I'll never leave you alone.

Now, woman, don't be shy,
I see that look in your eye,
A little snake-bite won't do nobody wrong.
And if you shake what you got
I'll be your only lover,
And I'll be howling for you all night long.

(Solo)

Steal away, steal away,
Steal away, steal away.

And if you steal away,
I'll turn your night into day
Don't ask no question,
And you won't get no lies.
And if you say you will,
I'll be your only lover.
And I will love you
'Til the day that I die.

Keep On Giving Me Love

Oh, you told me you were burned by holy water,
And the priest forgot the words
He was trying to say.
It seems your best friend
Is your own reflection,
And no promise of love
Is gonna make you wanna stay.

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find.
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,
Baby, I don't mind.

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love.

You got fox eyes,
They burn like a sunrise,
You got a walk that makes a mans' blood turn to wine.
You bought and sold me
For you lover,
As long as you feed me good, baby, I don't mind.

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find.
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,
Baby, I don't mind.

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love.

(Solo)

So you told me you were burned by holy water,
And the priest forgot the words
He was trying to say.
It seems your best friend
Is your own reflection,
And no promise of love
Is gonna make you wanna stay.

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find.
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,
Baby, I don't mind.

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love.

Queen Of Hearts

She was the keeper of all my reason,
Possessor of all I owned,
She kept me on the edge of darkness
With words as cold as stone.
Then you came along,
Your eyes were flashing with desire,
Oh babe, you got me burning, so much
You got my soul on fire.

Honey, you move me,
You got me so I can't sleep at night,
You tell me you believe in me,
And you say you're gonna treat me right.

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start.
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
They say that love's a gamble,
But, I got the Queen of Hearts.

If I could touch the crystal silence
That we have after making love,
Just to tell you I need you here
In the glow of the stars above.

If you ever leave, or deceive,
Or fool around,
You could be right,
You could be wrong,
But, woman, I know I'll miss you
When you're gone.

Honey, you move me,
Like the wind thro' a willow tree.
Ain't no doubt about it, baby,
You make the blindman see.

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start.
I'm gonna tell you, holy Roller,
They say that love's a gamble,
But, I got the Queen of Hearts.

You drive me crazy when you walk,
Crazy when you talk,
Crazy when you walk with me.

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start.
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
Gonna tell you, holy roller,
You're the Queen of Hearts.

(Solo)

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start.
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
You're the Queen of Hearts...

Only My Soul

Only my soul, stops me crying,
Wondering why I feel alone.
And only my love keeps me from
Weeping, so bad,
Giving me strength, to carry on.

Lead me on thro' restless waters,
Walk with me along the way.
Live the moment, and tomorrow.
For the Lord will take it all
On judgement day.

Broken dreams lay all around me,
Sad eyed children of despair.
Whispered voices in the distance
Call me on to who knows where.

Lead me on thro' restless waters,
Walk with me along the way.
Live the moment, and tomorrow.
'Cos the Lord will take it all on judgement day,
And the Lord will take it all on judgement day.

Hear me crying out for love.
Hear me crying out for love.
I'll never let you know it,
I can only show it in my song.

Only my soul.

(Solo)

Hear me crying out for love.
Hear me crying out for love.
I'll never let you know it,
I can only show it in my song.
Only my soul...


Breakdown

Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown.
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown.
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone.
Do what the man says, take the money and run.

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

I never saw the tears but I knew you cried for rhythm 'n' blues.
Screaming like a wildcat I knew that I had nothing to lose.
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone.
Do what the man says, take the money and run.

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown.

Shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away.
Never see me fall on the ground till I've had my say.
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone.
Do what the man says, take the money and run.

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
It's just a breakdown.

(Solo)

Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown.
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown.
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone.
Do what the man says, take the money and run.

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

It's just a breakdown,

Give me all your love
(Coverdale/Sykes)

When I first saw you baby
You took my breath away,
I knew your name was Trouble
But, my heart got in the way
I couldn't stop myself from reaching out,
I could not turn away

I don't even know your name
An' I can't leave you alone,
I'm running round in circles
Like a dog without a bone
I know the game you're playing
But, baby I just can't let go 

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want
Just give me all of your loving tonight

I'll work hard everyday
To love and treat you right.
I'll rock you in the morning
And roll you in the night.
Any way you want
I'm gonna prove my love for you. 

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight, tonight, tonight... 

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight 

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight 

I am blinded by your smile
And I'm crazy about your walk
I shiver and I shake
When I hear you baby talk
I'm a fool for your loving babe,
Give me all your loving tonight... 

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight 

Anything you want from me...

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight, tonight, tonight...
Soldier of fortune
(Blackmore/Coverdale)

I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand
And sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
Come lay with me love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

Many times I've been a traveller
I looked for something new
In days of old
When nights were cold
I wandered without you
But those days I thougt my eyes
Had seen you standing near
Though blindness is confusing
It shows that you're not here

Now I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune
Yes, I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune


Love To Keep You Warm

If you want love,
You gotta be cool
And if you deny it,
Then baby you're a fool.
I'm telling you now,
Don't you hide it away.
Because you need to keep you warm both night and day.

I could come home
Late at night
And after some loving,
Baby, it would be alright.
I've given up trying
Lying my way.
Because you need love to keep you warm both night and day,
You gotta have love to keep you warm both night and day.

I said baby, if you need my love
You better come home with me.
Maybe if you want my love,
You know you got it easily.
But, when the sun goes down
And the night is cold,
You know I won't be far away.
Because you need love to keep you warm both night and day,
You gotta have love to keep you warm both night and day.

You gotta have love.

(Solo)

If you want schooling baby
I'll be around,
I'm ready for fooling
But, don't hang around.
And every morning I know I will say.
Because you need love to keep you warm both night and day,
You gotta have love to keep you warm both night and day.

I said baby, if you need my love
You better come home with me.
Maybe if you want my love,
You know you got it easily.
But, when the sun goes down
And the night is cold,
You know I won't be far away.
Because you need love to keep you warm both night and day,
You gotta have love to keep you warm both night and day,
You gotta have love to keep you warm both night and day,
I said you need love to keep you warm both night and day.

Nighthawk (Vampire Blues)

Gypsy woman told me
I've got to walk the night
Like a fallen angel,
I'm blinded by the light.
I need to find a love child,
Who never did no wrong.
A superstitious woman
To love me all night long.

Let me love you.

My heart beats like a hammer,
I'm scared of being alone,
I never thought I'd see the day
I'd curse when I was born.
Caught up in a fever, running hot 'n cold,
I need a sweet young woman
To satisfy my soul.

Let me love you.

Nighthawk, nighthawk
Shadow of the light,
A loner in the city streets
Crying in the night.
Nighthawk, nighthawk
Howling at the sky,
When the moon is on the rise
You'll hear the nighthawk cry.

Let me love you, let me love you.

(Solo)

Let me love you, let me love you, let me love you.

Gypsy woman told em

Shadow of the light,
A loner in the city streets
Crying in the night.
Nighthawk, nighthawk
Howling at the sky,
When the moon is on the rise
You'll hear the nighthawk cry.

Let me love you...

The Time Is Right For Love

When I saw you in the Garden
Sweet lilac in your hair,
The sunlight seemed to surround you
And bless the morning air.
I wondered what your name was
And if you would dance with me,
I heard you cry for mercy
But, my eyes they could not see.

'Cos the time is right for love,
The time is right for love,
You can pray to the Lord above
But, the time is right for love.

So much for all your sweet words,
All that you said you would do.
Remember all my love songs,
They were promises to you.
But, I don't hold it against you,
I know you're not to blame
So draw your circle around me
And we'll put all your lovers to shame.

'Cos the time is right for love,
The time is right for love,
You can pray to the Lord above
But, the time is right for love.

(Solo)

'Cos the time is right for love,
The time is right for love,
You can pray to the Lord above
But, the time is right for love...

Free Flight

Head on down the highway
Across the county line,
I've had my fill of small town thrills
Gonna leave it all behind.

Free flight, free flight.

I'm careless in my loving,
Shameless in my style,
If I get caught by the short 'n curlies
I'll just hide out for awhile.

Free flight, free flight.

On an' on the road goes on
It'll go on forever,
An' just the same I'll live my life,
Hell bent for leather.

Free flight, free flight.

Heaven knows it's driving me crazy,
It's a feeling inside.
Heaven knows it's in my blood
As long as I try, I just can't deny.

Free flight, come tomorrow dawn you'll find me gone.
Free flight, make no bones about it, I'm moving on.

Free flight, free flight, free flight.
Free flight, free flight, free flight.

Head on down the highway
Suitcase in your hand,
When you get down with your feet on the ground
I know you'll understand.

Free flight, free flight.

Heaven knows it's driving me crazy,
It's a feeling that's driving me wild.
Heaven knows it's in my blood,
Fool if you try, you just can't deny.

Free flight, come tomorrow dawn you'll find me gone.
Free flight, make no bones about it, I'm moving on.

(Solo)

Free flight, free flight, free flight...

Don't Mess With Me

Fly like an eagle,
An outlaw of the sun,
Stealing 'round your bedroom door
A case of hit 'n run.
Sinner, sinner,
I'm no angel you can see.

So I will tell you now
And I won't say it again,
Don't mess with me
Oh baby, don't mess with me.

Ride like a demon,
The devil's only son.
A whiskey drinking son of a bitch,
I've only just begun.
Sinner, sinner,
I'm no angel you can see.

I told you once before
And I won't say it again,
Don't mess with me,
Don't mess with me.

(Solo)

Soothe me baby like I soothe you,
Treat me baby like I treat you.
Soothe me baby like I soothe you,
Treat me baby like I...

Fly like an eagle
An outlaw of the sun,
Never take what sleeps around
But, always get your fun.
Sinner, sinner,
You're no angel I can see.

I told you once before
And I won't say it again,
Don't mess with me,
Don't mess with me.
'Cos I'm a sinner

And sinners ain't the loving kind.


Bad boys
(Coverdale/Sykes)

I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down 
I steal around, like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day 

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city 
I see you, you see me
Just a black street boy in society
With high-heeled women full of champagne an' lies,
Getting wild in the street
'Til the hot sunrise
Stealing round like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day 

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city 

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city 

I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down 

I don't care what the people think,
I can't hear what the people say,
I steal around like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day 

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Bad, bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city 

Undercover of moonlight... 


Children of the night
(Coverdale/Sykes)

I'm getting ready
I'm in the mood to fool around
It's time for action
Now the boys are back in town

So turn up the music,
Make it loud and proud
Let's see reaction
Let the spotlight hit the crowd

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

You got the power,
I feel your fire in my soul
You got the fever,
'Cos you were born to rock an' roll
Don't run for cover,
I'm gonna show you what I've learned
Just come a little closer,
Come on an' get your fingers burned 

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher. 

Now are you ready to rock,
Are you ready to roll,
Are you ready to rock...

Don't turn away
(Coverdale/Sykes)

You say your dreams are burned to ashes
And your smiles have turned to tears,
It seems to me you welcome sanest
As you surrender to your fears

So what's a man like me supposed to do
When all I want is just to make love to you

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night is gone

You say your heart is lost forever
And you're always gonna give your love in vain
So you paint yourself a lonely portrait
And hide your love away again

You turn away from what you feel inside,
You can't forget all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night is gone

So now I'm asking you this question
Am I gonna give you all my love in vain
Do you wanna drown in your own sorrow
Or are you gonna try to love again

Don't turn away from what you feel inside,
You should try to forget about all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night,
Before the night is gone 

Don't turn away from me baby,
No, no, no, no.
Don't put me away,
Don't walk away from me darling
I need your love,
Oh baby,
I need your love to rescue me,
An' I'm coming for you, baby...


Straight for the heart
(Coverdale/Sykes)

I'm coming round to see you,
Kicking down your door
I've got to tell you girl
I really can't take no more
'Cos I've been hearing about you
Everybody says you're front page news
Laying it down, all around the town
Giving all the boys the blues 

Stand and deliver in the name of love,
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you want I'm gonna do 

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane 

I never loved a woman
The way that I love you
I can't escape the feeling,
You don't know what you're putting me through 

So stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand 

Straight for the heart 

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane 

You got the love I dream of
The kind that cost so much,
Just cover me with kisses, baby
Surrender to my touch 

Stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do 

I'm going straight for the heart
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane 

Straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart,
I'm gonna drive you insane 

Straight for the heart...


River Song
I was born by the river
Raised by the sea
Baptized in muddy water 
To drown the devil in me
Iím going back to the river
Down to the stream
Iím gonna follow that water
And find my dream

Where St. John be waiting on me
To wash my sins away
Hey St. Christopher pray for me
Cos baby Iím on my way

Where the rivers flow
Where the rivers flow
Just around the bend
Iíll find my rainbows end 
Maybe then Iíll know
Where the rivers flow

You know the gypsy woman told me
About a river of gold
Full of dreams for the asking
In the valley of souls
So I called to the captain
Come on take my hand
Iím gonna follow the water
To the Promised Land

Where St. John be waiting on me
To wash my sins away
Hey St. Christopher pray for me
Cos baby Iím on my way

Where the rivers flow
Where the rivers flow
Just around the bend
Iíll find my rainbows end
And maybe then Iíll know 
Where the rivers flow

Cry For Love
I lost my heart in a moment of madness
Took a chance on romance with you
But you roll your dice as cold as ice
Lady luckís got nothing on you

Itís too bad Iím all out of luck again

You deal your cards under the table
Never giving nothing away
Youíre the black queen of hearts
Tearing me apart
Cheating on me night and day

Itís too bad Iím all outta luck again

Some body throw me a life preserver
Cosí Iím going down with a cry for love

Iím outta luck and youíre no lady
This game of love ainít treating me right
So pour another shot, double what you got
Get me drunk as a skunk tonight

Somebody throw me a life preserver
Cosí Iím going down with a cry for love

I canít run, I canít hide
Always on the losing side
Canít you see me
Canít you hear a cry for love

Somebody throw me a life preserver
Get me off shaky ground
Call off the dogs that hound me
Cosí Iím going down with a cry for love

Living On Love
When I need a hand to guide me
I find you there
And everything you give to me
Is filled with love and care
You take away the memory
Of a thousand rainy days
With promises of summer love 
You chase the clouds away
Mow if the sky should fill with rain
I know the sun will shine again

When I think of all the heartache
Iíve been through
The many mistakes I had to make 
To lead me here to you
All the jurt and sadness
Donít seem to much
As the walls I built around my heart
Crumble when we touch
Through my life was filled with pain
You show me how to love again

Now Iím never gonna run
Never gonna hide
Iím living on love 
Never gonna run
Never gonna hide

Nothingís gonna  stop me know

Iíll sing songs of love to you
Cosí everything Iím feeling babe

Nothing can come between us
No dark clouds in the way
All the love I feel for you 
Grows stronger every day
After all is said and done

Now Iím never gonna run
Never gonna hide
Iím living on love
Never gonna run
Never gonna hide
Iím living on love 
Nothings gonna stop me now
Cosí Iím living on love with you


Midnight Blue
In the cold light of the morning
I watch the sunrise slowly dawning
I close me eyes and I see you there
And the silence takes my breath away
I canít stand to face another day
In the evening when the sun goes down,
I reach out for you but youíre not around 
You color my world midnight blue
So whatís a man like me to do
With all the love I feel for you

Come and take me midnight blue
Here I am waiting for you
When Iím troubled and all alone
You shine down on me
When I need sympathy

Under street lights I walk alone
Hiding in shadows from dusk to dawn
The taste of your perfume
On the cold night air
Leaves a sadness hanging over me
The thought of you wonít let me be

Come and take me midnight blue
Here I am waiting for you
When Iím troubled and all alone
You shine down on me 
When I need sympathy

Too Many Tears
I used to be the man for you
Did everything you wanted me to
So tell me baby
Where did I go wrong

I told you what you wanted to know
Precious secrets never spoken before
All Iím asking
Where did I go wrong

Some things are better left unsaid
But all I do is cry instead
Now Iíve cried me a river 
Thinking how it used to be

Thereíve been too many tears falling
And thereíve been too many hearts
Breaking in two
Remember what we had together
Believing it would last forever
So tell me baby
Where did I go wrong

Everything I had was yours
More than I have ever given before
So wonít you tell me
Did I hurt you so bad

I guess Iím fooling myself
ĎCause I want you and no one else
And I canít understand
Why youíre doing these things to me
Thereíve been too many tears falling
And thereíve been too many hearts
Breaking in two 
Remember what we had together
Believing it would last forever
So tell me baby
Where did I go wrong

Now my heart is breaking
My whole world is shaking
"Cause I canít understand
Why youíre doing these things to me

Thereíve been too many tears falling
And thereíve been too many hearts
Breaking in two 
Remember what we had together
Believing it would last forever
So tell me baby
Where did I go wrong

Donít Lie To Me
Iíve been lied to all my life
It cuts me to the bone
But Iíve survived 
Lies aní deceptions
So hard to see
When I needed you
You turned you back on me
Where were you when I needed you
Everything you asked of me I tried to do

So donít lie to me
Donít lie to me
Do anything you want
But donít lie to me

I was drowning in misery
Behind your painted smile
You laughed at me
But Iíve got you number
Itís clear to see
I wouldnít treat a dog 
The way you treated me

Where were you when I needed you
Everything you asked of me I tried to do

So donít lie to me
Donít lie to me
Do anything you want
But donít lie to me
Donít lie to me
Donít lie to me 
One thing I canít stand
Is when you lie to me

Where were you when I needed you
Everything you asked of me I tried to do
And all because I trusted you
Iíve been lied to all my life
It cuts me to the bone
But I survive 
Nothing ever changes
Itís still the same
But one day youíll get yours
In the lying game

So donít lie to me 
Donít lie to me 
One thing I canít stand
Is when you lie to me
Donít lie to me
Donít lie to me
Do anything you want
But donít lie to me

Donít lie to me 
Don
T lie to me 
One thing I canít stand
Is when you lie to me

Wherever You May Go
You mean the world to me
More than I can say
And when I look at you
It takes my breath away
I look into your eyes
And see the love for me
Once again I realise
Thereís no where else
Iíd rather be

And when my life is over
When my time is through
Iíll still be loving you

Youíre all I want
Everything I need
When I look at you
Itís easy to believe
No matter what you say
No matter what you do 
Wherever you may go
My heart will follow you

You stand beside me
When my backs against the wall
You cradle my uncertainty
And catch me when I fall
So put your arms around me
Like a circle around the sun
Touch me with your healing hand
And show my life has just begun

And when this time is over
When this life is through
Iíll still be loving you

Youíre all I want 
Everything I need
When I look at you
Itís easy to believe
No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Wherever you may go
My heart will follow you

And when my life is over 
When my time is through
Iíll still be loving you

Youíre all I want
Everything I need
When I look at you
Itís easy to believe
No Matter what you say 
No matter what you do
Wherever you may go 
My heart will follow you
