Big Guitars. Bigger Drums. Chest Crushing Bass. The Power Trio is alive and kickin' with Cincinnati's Black Roses. Ready to rock any venue with a face full of Marshall tone and classic tunes to match, Black Roses are far from the run-of-the mill local rock band.

Lyrics

I'm Gonna

Written By: Pinky Tuscadero's Whiteknuckle Assfuck

I'm gonna do whatever I want to
I'm gonna do whatever I say
I'm gonna take the kids to black masses
I'm gonna teach them all to pray
I'm gonna be like Abraham Lincoln
I'm gonna free the modern day slaves
I'm gonna lead the youth of the nation
Take them to a fair working wage

I'm gonna hear the cries of the hungry
I'm gonna head the call of the weak
I'm gonna be the boy in the bubble
I'm gonna change a future that's bleak
I'm gonna put my arms 'round the homeless
I'm gonna change supply and demand
I'm gonna preach a new way of living
I'm gonna hold the world in my hands.

That's freedom? Oh yeah. That's freedom? Hell yeah!

I'm gonna hand myself on the cross and
I'm gonna be the new prophet
I'm gonna tell you what to do and
You, my friend, you're gonna do it!
I'm gonna write the new ten commandments
I'm gonna raise the lion on the lamb
I'm gonna do a jig on the White House lawn and
I'm gonna be the man!

That's Freedom? Hell yeah! That's Freedom? Fuck yeah!

That's Freedom!

Inside Lookin' Out

Written By: J. Lomax, A. Lomax, Burdon, Chandler

I'm sitting here lonely like a broken man.
I serve my time doin' the best I can.
Walls and bars they surround me.
But, I don't want no sympathy.
No baby, no baby,
All I need is some tender lovin'.
To keep me sane in this burning oven.
And, when my time is up, you'll be my reefer.
Life gets worse on God's green earth.
Be my reefer, got to keep smokin' that thing.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I said now baby ... baby ..., let me smoke it ... smoke it ...
Makes me feel good ... feel good, yes, I feel good ... ahhhhh ...
Yes, I feel alright ... feel alright ..., yes, I feel alright ... feel alright ...
Yes, I feel alright ... Ahhhhh ...
Ohhhhh ...
Ice cold water is runnin' through my veins.
They try and drag me back to work again.
Pain and blisters on my mind and hands.
I work all day making up burlap bags.
The oats they're feeding me are driving me wild.
I feel unhappy like a new born child.
Now, when my time is up, you wait and see.
These walls and bars won't keep that stuff from me.
No, no, baby,
Won't keep that stuff from me.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I need you right now mama.
I need you right now baby.
Right by my side, honey.
All my love.
Make me feel alright ...
Yes, all ..., yes, all ..., yes, all ... alright.
You better come on up and get down with me.
I'll make you feel real good, just you wait and see.
Make me feel alright ..., yes, I feel alright ...
Yes, all ..., yes, all ..., yes, alright.

Evil

Written By: Howlin' Wolf (Arr. P. Travers)

If you're a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.

That's evil,
Evil is goin on wrong.
I am warnin ya brother,
You better watch your happy home.

Well, long way from home and,
Can't sleep at all.
You know another mule,
Is kickin in your stall.

That's evil,
Evil is goin on wrong.
I am warnin ya brother,
You better watch your happy home.

You better catch him,
Cause somethin wrong,
In your home.

Well, if ya call her on the telephone,
And she answers aweful slow,
Grab the first train smokin,
If you have to hobo.

That's evil,
Evil is goin on wrong.
I am warnin ya brother,
You better watch your happy home.

If you make it to your house,
Knock on the front door,
Run around to the back,
You'll catch him just before he go.

That's evil,
Evil is goin on.
I am warnin ya brother,
You better watch your happy home.

Weary

Written By: Chip McLain

The road is long and weary up ahead
How I miss the comforts of my bed
O, I'm so weary
Give me a place to lay my head

Well, two women have left me since I left home
Two women have left me
O, since I left home
I wouldn't be so worried if I weren't sitting' on top of the world
(It gets mighty cold up there)

What's it feel like to be nailed upon that cross?
O, what's it feel like?
To be nailed upon that cross?
Said, "If i didn't have so much, I couldn't feel so much loss"
