    Shaky Ground (Delbert McClinton)

    Lady Luck and four leaf clovers
    Won't ease this hurt I feel all over
    My life was one special occaision
    'Til your leaving dampened the situation
    I'm standing on Shaky Ground
    Ever since you put me down
    Standing on Shaky Ground
    Ever since you put me down
    My car got repossessed this morning
    Harder times I haven't seen in years
    You'd better throw me a life preserver
    'Cause I'm about to drown in my own tears​

    Falling in Love For the Night (The CDB Feat. Crystal Gale)

    Well, her name was Maria
    She came from Bajia
    She had a passion for diamonds and gold
    She done broke every heart
    In Puerto Vallarta
    By the time she was eighteen years old

    Then she left for Las Vegas
    With Senor Rodreguez
    She didn't care what anybody would think
    And when she came back
    She had two Cadillacs and a mink

    Well, he came from Kentucky
    All the boys called him 'Lucky'
    He loved to ramble around and have fun
    A wild-eyed joker with a talent for poker
    And a good lookin' son of a gun

    Strong as a bear
    Kinda devil may care
    But he had a weakness, alright
    For good lookin' ladies
    And falling in love for the night

    He met Maria in a small bar in Mexico City
    Where him and his buddies had gone
    Down to see the bullfight

    He took on look in those flashy brown eyes
    And said, "Here we go again"

    When these high powered lovers
    Got a look at each other
    They thought it was love at first sight
    They danced and got high
    And then by and by

    She came up to his room for the night
    Then that jet-settin' mama
    Left for Yokohama
    With a millionaire from San Antone
    And when Lucky woke up
    His loot and his lady were gone

    Now he sits in Louisville drownin'
    In sour mash whiskey
    While she rides through the streets
    Of Juarez in a long limousine

    He lost his pride
    And a whole lot besides
    And she just don't give a damn

    I guess that's what you get
    For fallin' in love for the night
    I guess that's what you get
    For fallin' in love for the night

    Marie LaVaux (Bobby Bare)

    Down in Louisiana where the black trees grow lives a voodoo lady named Marie Leveau
    She got a black cat tooth and a mojo bone and anyone wouldn't leave her alone
    She go (greeeeeee) another man done gone
    She lives in a swamp in a hollow log with a one eyed snake and a three legged dog
    She got a bent bony body and stringy hair
    And if she ever seen you all messin' round there
    She go (greeeeeee) another man done gone
    And then one night when the moon was black into the swamp come Handsome Jack
    A no good man like you all know when he was lookin' around for Marie Leveau
    He said Marie Leveau you lovely witch gimme little charm that'll make me rich
    Gimme million dollars and I tell you what I'll do this very night I'm gonna marry you
    And it'll be ummmmmmm another man done gone
    So Marie done some magic and she shook a little sand
    Made a million dollars and she put it in his hands
    Then she giggled and she wiggled and she said hey hey
    I'm gettin' ready for my weddin' day
    But ol' Handsome Jack he said goodbye Marie
    You're too damn ugly for a rich man like me
    Then Marie started numblin' her fangs started gnashin'
    Her body started tremblin' and her eyes started flashin'
    And she went (greeeeeee) another man done gone
    So if you ever get down where the black trees grow
    And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Leveau
    If she ever asks you to make her your wife
    Man you better stay with her for the rest of your life
    Or it'll be (oheeeeeee) another man done gone​

    Mississippi Queen (Molly Hatchet/Ted Nugent)

    Mississippi Queen, if you know what I mean
    Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
    Way down around Vicksburg, around Louisiana way
    Lived a Cajun lady, we called her Mississippi Queen
    You know she was a dancer
    She moved better on wine

    While the rest of them dudes was a-gettin' their kicks
    Buddy, beg your pardon, I was getting mine

    Mississippi Queen, if you know what I mean
    Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
    This lady she asked me if I would be her man
    You know that I told her I'd do what I can
    To keep her looking pretty
    Buy her dresses that shine

    While the rest of them dudes was a-makin' their bread
    Buddy, beg your pardon, I was losing mine

    You know she was a dancer
    She moved better on wine

    While the rest of them dudes was gettin' their kicks
    Brother, beg your pardon, now I'm getting mine
    Ohhhh, Mississippi Queen

    The joint was rockin'
    Goin' round and round,
    Yeah reelin' and a rockin',
    What a crazy sound,
    Well they never stop a rockin'

    Well and clappin' my hands.

    What a crazy sound,
    Well you never stop rockin'

    A Change Is Gonna Come (Dobie Gray)

    I was born by the river in a little tent
    Oh and just like the river I've been running ever since
    It's been a long, a long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

    It's been too hard living but I'm afraid to die
    Cause I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
    It's been a long, a long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

    I go to the movie and I go downtown
    Somebody keep telling me don't hang around
    It's been a long, a long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

    Then I go to my brother
    And I say brother help me please
    But he winds up knocking me
    Back down on my knees

    Ohhhhhhhhh...

    There been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
    But now I think I'm able to carry on
    It's been a long, a long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

    Can't You See (The CDB)

    Gonna take a freight train
    Down at the station, Lord
    I don't care where it goes
    Gonna climb a mountain
    The highest mountain
    Jump off, nobody gonna know 

    Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
    What that woman, Lord, she been doin' to me
    Can't you see, can't you see
    What that woman, she been doin' to me

    I'm gonna find me 
    A hole in the wall
    I'm gonna crawl inside and die
    'Cause my lady, now
    A mean ol' woman, Lord
    Never told me goodbye

    Can't you see, oh, can't you see
    What that woman, Lord, she been doin' to me
    Can't you see, can't you see
    What that woman, Lord, she been doin' to me

    I'm gonna buy a ticket, now
    As far as I can
    Ain't a-never comin' back
    Ride me a southbound
    All the way to Georgia, now
    Till the train, it run out of track

    Can't you see, oh, can't you see
    What that woman, Lord, she been doin' to me
    Can't you see, can't you see
    What that woman, she been doin' to me

    Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
    What that woman, Lord, she been doin' to me
    Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
    What that woman, she been doin' to me

    Can't you see (oh, she's such a crazy lady), can't you see
    What that woman, she been doin' to me
    Can't you see (Lord, I can't stand), can't you see
    What that woman, she been doin' to me

    Can't you see (I'm gonna take a freight train), can't you see (down at the station, Lord)
    What that woman, she been doin' to me (ain't never comin' back)
    Can't you see (gonna ride me a southbound, now), can't you see (all the way to Georgia, Lord)
    What that woman, she been doin' to me (till the train run out of track)​
