Very Last Day (Stookey / Yarrow)
Everybody's gonna pray
On the very last day
When they hear that bell
Ring the world away
Everybody's gonna pray to the heavens on the Judgment Day

Well you can sing about the great King David
And you can preach about the wisdom of Saul
But the Judgment falls on all mankind
When the trumpet sounds the call

All equal and the same
When the Lord, He calls your name
Get ready brothers for that day

Everybody's gonna pray
On the very last day
When they hear that bell
Ring the world away
Everybody's gonna pray to the heavens on the Judgment Day

Well one day soon all men will stand
His words will be heeded in all the land
Men shall know and men shall see
We all are brothers and we all are free

Mankind was made of clay
Each of us in the very same way
Get ready brothers for that day

Everybody's gonna pray
On the very last day
When they hear that bell
Ring the world away
Everybody's gonna pray to the heavens on the Judgment Day

Break

Well the law is given and the law is known
The tale is told and the seed is sown
From dust we came and dust we'll go
You know the Lord once told us so

Each brother take His hand
Heed the meaning of the Lord's command
Get ready brother for that day

Everybody's gonna pray
On the very last day
When they hear that bell
Ring the world away
Everybody's gonna pray to the heavens on the Judgment Day

Judgment Day

Judgment Day

Judgment Day

 

You Must Believe Me (Mayfield)
You must believe me
No matter what the people might say
You must believe me
Darling it just didn't happen that way
No, no it just didn't happen that way

You come home
With something on your mind
Tell me darling
Why are you crying
I said be serious
No time for fun
You're tryin' to tell me
Something that I've done
The things you heard
Couldn't be denied
But before your opinion
Listen to my side

You must believe me
No matter what the people might say
You must believe me
Darling it just didn't happen that way
No, no it just didn't happen that way

Break

Oh oh
Oh oh

You come home
With something on your mind
Tell me darling
Why are you crying
I said be serious
No time for fun
You're tryin' to tell me
Something that I've done
The things you heard
Couldn't be denied
But before your opinion
Listen to my side

You must believe me
No matter what the people might say
You must believe me
You must believe me
You must believe me

 

Put Yourself In My Place (Ransford)
So you gotta put yourself in my place
I don't want to lose face

People talking 'round town
Telling me that you've been putting it round
That your love for me
So they say
It's hard to realize
That I love you this way
So you gotta put yourself in my place
Don't want to lose face

Coz you're telling these lies
Everyone will think it's no surprise
That you're leaving me today
I never thought that I'd see you walking away
So you gotta put yourself in my place
Don't want to lose face

So your friends turn their backs
And laugh at me
Well you just tell them
That our love could never be
And so you gotta now
Put yourself in my place

Break

So you gotta now
Put yourself in my place
Don't want to lose face

Why don't we both take a chance
I'm sure that if we tried we could save our romance
I'll never understand what you did to me
Why don't you realize that I'll never be free
And so you gotta
Put yourself in my place
Don't want to lose face

No no no no no no (lose face)
Listen to me baby (lose face)
Come on Come on
You gotta try
Lose face

 

Down The Line (Orbison)
Well you can't be my lovin' baby
You ain't gotta style
I'm gonna get some real good love
Gonna drive those cool cats wild

I'm gonna move, move on down the line
Wanna get some love, a love that's truly fine


Oh I'm gonna show you a-way so hot
I'm gonna get what you ain't got
She'll be cool, she'll be wrong
She'll be cool and twice as strong

Gonna roll, roll on down the line
Wanna get some love, a love that's truly fine

Why! come on now

Break

Yeh, Move on down the line
Wanna get some love that's truly fine
She'll be cool, she'll be long
She'll be cool and twice as strong

Gonna roll, roll on down the line
Gonna get some love, a love that's truly fine

Oh let's sing it again one time now

Break

Yeh, move on down the line
Wanna get some love that's truly fine
She'll be cool, she'll be long
She'll be cool and twice as strong

Gonna roll, roll on down the line
Wanna get some love, a love that's truly fine

Yeh, move (Yeh gonna move)

I'm gonna move (Yeh gonna move)

I'm gonna move (Yeh gonna move)

 

That's My Desire (Loveday / Kresa)
To spend one night with you
In our rendezvous
And reminisce with you
That's my desire
Oh woa, woa, woa

To go where gypsies play
Down in some dim cafe
And dance till break of day
That's my desire
Oh woa, woa, woa

To sip a little glass of wine
And gaze into your eyes divine
To feel the touch of your lips
Pressing on mine

To hear you whisper low
Just when it's time to go
Cheri, I love you so
That's my desire
Oh woa, woa, woa
That's my desire
Oh woa, woa, woa
That's my desire

 

Too Many People (Ransford)
There's a story that I read about in books
About the bad times that people had
That's how he planned it
You can't do nowt about it
Too many people

The black plague came along and wiped out quite a few
The rats came with the graves, that's how we knew
That's how he planned it
You can't do nowt about it
Too many people

This ain't no story
No fairy tale
These things have happened once before
Ask yourself the question
When will it end
There ain't no foolin' death
So you just gotta sit and wait

Break

Too many people
Too many people

This ain't no story
No fairy tale
These things have happened once before
Ask yourself the question
When will it end
There ain't no foolin' death
So you just gotta sit and wait

A million people died
In great wars, that we know
They sacrificed their lives
Just goes to show
That's how he planned it
You can't do nowt about it

Too many people (there's too many people)
Too many people
Too many people
Too many people oh yeah

 

Lawdy Miss Clawdy (Price)
Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy Miss Clawdy
Well you sure look good to me
Well please don't excite me baby
You know I can't be free

Well I give you all my money
But you just don't treat me right
You like to ball every morning
Don't come home ‘til late at night

I'm gonna tell, tell your mama
What you been doing to me
Well please don't excite me baby
I'm in misery

Oh come on

Break

Well lawdy, lawdy, lawdy Miss Clawdy
Well you sure look good to me
Well please don't excite me baby
You know I can't be free

Well a-bye, bye, bye baby
You won't see me now more
Well bye little darling
Down the road I go
Down the road I go
Down the road I go

 

When I Come Home To You (Ransford)
I'm telling you girl
That I'm coming home to you
I hate to say this
But I know you've been untrue
Just stop your foolin'
Come on and hold me
When I come home to you
When I come home to you

It's plain to see love
Isn't something new to you
You couldn't be loved
Cause you've never known the truth
About the lies
You tell to me
When I come home to you
When I come home to you

Comin' home isn't good for me
I know
But the way that you look at me
I know
That I've got to come on home
And take you in my arms

Break

Comin' home isn't good for me
I know
But the way that you look at me
I know
That I've got to come on home
And take you in my arms

I'm telling you girl
That I'm coming home to you
I hate to say this
But I know you've been untrue
Just stop your foolin'
Come on and hold me
When I come home to you
Yeh


When I come home to you
Woa wo

When I come home to you

 

Fortune Teller (Neville)
Went to a fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't know what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

She took a hold of my palm
She said Son you feel kind of warm
And then she looked into a crystal ball
She said You're in love

I said how could that be so
I'm not friendly with the girls I know
She said when the next one arrives
You gotta look into her eyes

I left there in a hurry
Looking forward to my big surprise
The next day I discovered
That the fortune teller told me lies

I rushed straight back to that woman
Just as mad as I could be
I said I didn't see nobody
Why'd she made a fool of me

Then something struck me
Like lightning from up above
While looking at the fortune teller
I fell in love

Now I'm a happy fella
I'm married to the fortune teller
I'm as happy as I can be
Now I get my fortunes told for free

 

So Lonely (Ransford)
Every time I see you walking down
The street with my girl
I get a funny feeling
When I see you out with my girl

I get so lonely
I get so lonely without you
I get so lonely for you

See you every day
And now I realize you're not mine
I know I just can't think
Of anything to do with my time

'Cos I'm so lonely
I get so lonely without you

Waiting (Oh I'm waiting oh I'm waiting)
Oh I'm waiting (Oh I'm waiting yes I'm waiting)
Waiting (Oh I'm waiting yes I'm waiting)
For your loving
To keep me satisfied forever
To keep me satisfied forever

If you get tired of her
Just her right on back to my arms
And then we'll start anew
And know that we never will part

I get so lonely
I get so lonely without you
I get so lonely for you

 

I've Been Wrong (Ransford)
I, I've been wrong before
But I know for sure
That I saw you last night
Out with another guy
It nearly made me cry
So I'm telling your girl

Stand by me my love
And I'll give you anything you want anytime you want
So stand by me my love
And I'll give you everything
And I'll give you everything

Break

Stand by me my love
And I'll give you anything you want anytime you want
So stand by me my love
And I'll give you everything
And I'll give you everything

I, I've been wrong before
But I know for sure
That I saw you last night
Out with another guy
It nearly made me cry
So I'm telling your girl

Cry
So I'm telling you girl
Cry
So I'm telling you girl
Cry
