Lyrics

Don't Say Goodbye

Written By: Ivor Simpson-Kennedy

Oh I'm leavin
Ohi"m leavin
I got to go
Ain't never felt this low
Just realised I been here too long
Just found out that you've been doing me wrong
Don't Say Goodbye

Oh I'm walkin
Oh I'm walkin
Say goodbye to my home
And go out on my own
I could lay down and die
Can't belive you told me all those lies
Don't say goodbye

Oh I'm gone
Oh I'm gone
Back out on the prowl
Don't need you anyhow
Your down and out, you say it ain't fair
Tell you the truth I dont really care
Dont say goodbye

Drifter

Written By: Ivor Simpson-Kennedy

Jump up Sit down
Jiggle bit move around
When your head hit the floor
I'll be walkin out your door
Back out on the road
Won't be seeing you no more
Im a Drifter
Go from town to town
I'm a drifter

I cheat steel lie and fight
Don't go to sleep at night
Have my fun have my play
You know I an't here to stay
You know I don't get lonely
Got plenty of girls to rock'n'roll me
Im a Drifter
Go from town to town
I'm a drifter
Know I get around
I'm a drifter
Go from town to town
I'm a drifter

Im a Drifter
Go from town to town
I'm a drifter
Know I get around
I'm a drifter
Go from town to town
I'm a drifter

Insane Again

Written By: Ivor Simpson-Kennedy

Crazy Hair wild eyes
Man I look like one mean surprise
People drop their bags and start running
Whenever thay see me coming alright
Oh I'm insane again
Said I dont know where I been
Baby don't you know that I am insane again

My baby won't talk to me
She says I've gone crazy
You know that I have been here before
One thing I know don't wanna be here no more
alright
Oh I'm insane again
Said I dont know where I been
Baby don't you know that I am insane again

You know what I ain't feeling so hot
Can't think straight my mind is shot
But I ain't got nothing to lose
So i'll just keep on a playin my blues
alright
Oh I'm insane again
Said I dont know where I been
Baby don't you know that I am insane again

Take the Good with the Bad

Written By: Ivor Simpson-Kennedy

My woman don't look good
My woman don't smile
Ain't got no class
Ain't got no style
She can't cook
She can't clean
But she got more money
Than I ever seen
Ain't it sad you gotta
Take the good with the bad

My boss no good
Give me no break
Takin' this job
Sure was a mistake
He done told me
He ain't no friend of mine
One thing I know
He's daughter looks fine
Ain't it sad you gotta
Take the good with the bad

Wanna sell my house
I know I should
Most beat up place
In the neighbourhood
Can't see out the windows
There's holes in the floor
But a big legged woman
Live right next door
Ain't it sad you gotta
Take the good with the bad

It's Raining

Written By: Ivor Simpson-Kennedy

No need to please ya
You mean nothing to me
You know I can stand now on my
My own two feet
Well I don't care what you
You think or say
I know you'll realise
Realise some day
But I been here so long
I guess I'll move along
On my own

It's raining
On my back door
said it's raining
Won't stop no more

I thinks it's 'bout time that I
I took my leave
Made up my mind now so just
Just let me be
And when I'm gone you know it
Sure will be fine
Fine me a quiet place just to
Spend my time
You may treat me like a fool
But I know a thing or too
Yes I do

It's raining
on my back door
Said it's raining
Won't stop no more

Crush my bones
Walk on my soul
Ain't got no place
No place to go

Every dog done have its day
Well your's was yesterday
So they say

Its raining
on my back door
Said it's raining
Won't stop no more
