SIDE ONE

Come And Get Your Love
(Russ Ballard)
Ackee Music, Inc. ASCAP

How long must I sit around waiting for you?
Think of all the heartache you've been putting me threw
You must have a soul but it don't show
Come on and love me or let me go.

Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
Before I give it away
(Come and get it)

Your a devil witch, and I'm hypnotized
Oh woman I can see right threw your eyes
Here's something for you (right here) take it from me
Why don't you love me or set me free.

Oh come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
Before I give it away
(Come and get it)

(Guitar Solo Over)
Come and get your love, get your love

I'm holding on
To your love for so long
Could be I'm tired of the face I admire
So why don't you say
Just  go away

Oh come and get your love
(Get your love)
 Get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
(Get your love)
Come and get your love
Before I give it away
(Come and get it)


Heart-s Right
(P. Korda)
Bersand Enterprises Inc. ASCAP

I'm on the same street as you
For so long I never new
You weren't there to wonder where
An empty chair in a room that's bare.

But now I now my hearts right
Now you hear my hearts right
Will you love my hearts right on the line


Oceans Away
(P. Goodhand-Tait)
Bersand Enterprises Inc. ASCAP

Don't wake me up
If I should be dreaming
I don't want to miss one minute of this dream.

Don't worry now
Cause your not dreaming
I'll love you always where ever you'll be.

Oceans away
Go where you may
And love will be with you
Oceans away
And love will be with you
Oceans away

The night is cold
But day is certain
No twilight zone can last very long
Darkness my friend I'll hide in your curtain
If your not here with me please let me dream on.

 Oceans away
Go where you may
But love will be with you
Oceans away
Love will be with you
Oceans away

Oceans away
Go where you may
But love will be with you
Oceans away
Love will be with you
Oceans away


Proud
(Russ Ballard)
Ackee Music, Inc. ASCAP

It could never be
Someone like you could part from me
You the open seas,
 me with my long hair and my jeans.

Every where I go
A crowd of people stop to stare
They can't see it's you
But they don't believe,
but it's me who's standing there.

Proud, Ooo that makes me proud
Proud, that it makes me proud.

Years don't mean a thing
In fact it fills my mind with pride
When people see it's you
You know they can't believe it's me beside your side.

Proud, Ooo that makes me proud
Proud, that it makes me proud.

Makes me so proud,
yes you make me so proud.

Every where I go
A crowd of people stop to stare
They can't see it's you
But they don't believe,
but it's me who's standing there.

Proud, Ooo that makes me proud
Proud, that it makes me proud.

Makes me so proud,
yes you make me so proud.


World Over
(P. Korda)
Bersand Enterprises Inc. ASCAP

Did you ever see a thousand miles away
A man in a room, with what you say
Looks may different are really the same
He could be me in another frame

It's all over
The world over
It's all over 
The world over

And a man looks up to infinity
Opens his eyes
to look at me
His looks may be different, his eyes see the same
No borders between us a thousand names

It's all over
The world over
It's all over 
The world over

Up and down
Let go light
What ever difference makes the whole thing right
Don't ask where
Don't ask why
Everybody knows you can live and die
The world over

And you can see the world a thousand miles away
Here I am here's what I say
But we all look different, but were one in the same
No borders between us, there's no one to blame

It's all over
The world over
It's all over
The world over


SIDE TWO

Near To Surrender
(R. Ballard)
Ackee Music, Inc. ASCAP

So near to surrender
So near to an end
So near to surrender
The smile is to pretend.

Oh you might think your small
With your back to a wall
Oh you might think your sad
When you've been hurt so bad.

But when somebody cares for you
Someone who shares
Your not near to surrender anymore.

(Guitar Solo)

So near, So near to surrender
Your futures, your futures unknown
But don't you surrender.

You fought, you fought for long
Theirs always a face
Waiting to take your place.

Theirs always a clown
Working on your lonely frown
But when losing is not on your mind
Maybe you'll find your not near to surrender

Somebody cares for you 
Someone who shares
Your not near to surrender anymore
Don't surrender anymore.


Feeling
(Koda)
Bersand Enterprises Inc. ASCAP

Could it be feeling
In my soul
Could it be feeling
Uncontrolled
Hallucinate and darkness
Unveils in the night
Empty imagination
So full of light.

Does it matter how I think of you
Cause I still love you


Walking the Dog/Proud
Released on Polydor 20 58 628, 1975. (Spain)


Walking The Dog
(Rufus Thomas)
East Memphis Music Corp. BMI

Baby's back dressed in black
Silver buttons all down her back
High ho tipsy toe
She broke the needle now she can't sew

Walking the dog
Just a-walking the dog
Well if you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog.

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.

Walking the dog
Just a-walking the dog
Well if you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog.

(Sax Solo)

Hey diddle diddle
The cats got the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
He jumped so high touched the sky
Didn't come back till the fourth of July.

Walking the dog
Just a-walking the dog
Well if you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog.


Milk Train
(D.Bugatti - F. Musker)
Blackwood Music Inc. BMI

Here I am upon the stage and it's very weird
It's not myself it's someone else but standing here
And the girls look strange, as they call my name.

Someone slipped a substance in me lemonade
My head is blown,
I think I'll phone the farm brigade
Can you see those rainbows,
In the first three rows

On the milk train at four A.M.
I'll be feeling strange
On the milk train at four A.M.
I'm goona be out of my brain

(guitar solo)

Some joker threw a firework from the gallery
I can hear him scream,
I wonder what he wants from me
But it won't be long now,
to the final song.

On the milk train at four A.M.
I'll be feeling strange
But on the milk train at four A.M.
I'll be out of my brain


I Was Born To Sing Your Song
(Marchand- Neal)
Midsong Music Inc./ Diagonal Music Inc.
ASCAP/ BMI

Maybe
Every little thing, can bring you close to tears
And maybe
Your every little dream has faded with the years
But don't let your tear drops blind you
Cause I'm walking right behind you now

I was born to sing your song
And if sometimes the tune sounds wrong
I'll change it, rearrange it all.

I was made to write your book
Say the words that lovers, took away
I was born to sing your song.

Maybe
You where living all alone
And memories, stole your time
And maybe
All your summer days were gone
And winter, chilled your mind
Nights  you cried with no one near you
But baby I'm staying near you now.

Cause I was born to sing your song
And if sometimes the tune sounds wrong
I'm gonna change it, rearrange, it all.

I was made to write your book
Say the words that lovers, took away
I was born to sing your song.

I was made to write your book
To say the words that lovers, took away
Oh I was born 
I was born to sing your song
I was born to sing your song
I was born, to sing your song
To sing your song
I was born, to sing your song
To sing your song
