LARRY'S BLUES BAND

Lyrics (Ready 4 you)

Born in 1950 (Larry Schmuki)

I was born with the blues
in the summer 1950
I was born with the blues
in the summer 1950
I grew up between the Mountains
In a little funny house

My mother was working hard
In the curtain weaving mill
My mother was working hard
In the curtain weaving mill
My Daddy was a joiner
With beer he got the thrill

It was in 1964
First time I met the blues
It was in 1964
First time I met the blues
A guy that named john mayall
His music paralyzed me so

Guys like John Lee Hoocker
Buddy Guy and Jimmy Reed
Clapton, Robert Johnson
And that rockin Alvin Lee
Peter Green and Muddy Waters
Willie Dixon, Howlin Wolf
Freddy King and Big Joe Turner
And that blind boy Brian Lee
It’s their music I grew up with
It’s their feeling I still need



I DONT LIKE MOBILES (LARRY SCHMUKI)

I’M SITTING IN A RESTAURANT
WITH SUCH A BEAUTY , BURNING HOT
THE ATMOSPHERE IS HEATING
WE’RE LOOKIN’ IN EACH EYES
SHE GRAP MY THIGH
AND I’M FLYIN’ HIGH
ABOUT TO START MY SWEETEST SPEECH
HER MOBILE START TO RING

I’M SITTING IN A CHURCH (BENCH)
A FRIENT HAD PASSED AWAY
THE ORGAN’S PLAYIN’ SADLY
MY THOUGHTS ARE WANDERING
TO TIME WE WERE TOGETHER
PLAYIN’ AFTER SCHOOL
THE MOMENT WE START TO SING
A MOBILE START TO RING

I DONT LIKE MOBILES, I DONT LIKE PHONES
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL
I DONT LIKE MOBILES, I DONT LIKE PHONES
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL

I’M DRIVING IN MY CAR
A LONG AND DUSTY ROAD
THE ENGINE BROKE DOWN
SMOKE CAME OUT OF THE HOOD
I STOPPED AT THE RIGHT SIDE
AND DIALED THE HELPING LINE
A VOICE SAID NO CONNECTION
YOU DIDN’T PAY THE BILL THIS TIME

I DONT LIKE MOBILES, I DONT LIKE PHONES
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL
I DONT LIKE MOBILES, I DONT LIKE PHONES
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL
I DONT LIKE ALL THIS RADIO CONTROL



Big Daddy (Larry Schmuki)

I know a crazy guy
We call him big daddy
I know a crazy guy
We call him big daddy
He’s the only one
He’s Mr. Rock’n’roll

This guy grew up
On the dark side of life
This guy grew up
On the dark side of life
But he found the way
To find a better day

Big Daddy…..

When you see him on stage
he’s like a big earthquake
when you see him on stage
he’s like a big earthquake
He’s a real good guy
With a heart on the right place

He wrote me a lot of letters
Full of dirty jokes
He wrote me a lot of letters
Full of dirty jokes
But between the lines
Truth and wisdom shines

Big Daddy…..



CLOUDY IS THE SKY (Larry Schmuki)

Cloudy is the sky
It looks like rain
Cloudy is the sky
My heart is full of pain
Cloudy is the sky
I spend my last nickel
For that train to bring me back home

Rain drops fallin’ down
Like the tears in my face
Raindrops fallin’ down
The river starts to race
Raindrops fallin’ down
I spend my last nickel
For that train to bring me back home

Shadows on my memories
I’m leavin’ them behind
Shadows on my memories
I save my broken mind
Shadows on my memories
I spend my last nickel
For that train to bring me back home



Rollin' Man ( Peter Green)

Oh baby,
Don't you want a man like me
Oh baby,
Don't you want a man like me
I could give you so much lovin'
More than one woman ever seen

Oh baby,
Make some love tonight
Oh baby,
We're gonna make some love tonight
Well be rollin' out the blankets
I'm gonna make you feel alright

I'm your rollin' man
I've got all the love you need
Rollin' man
Got all the love you need
I've got so much lovin'
More than you've ever seen



Anytime For You (Larry Schmuki)

I trusted in you, right from the start
You messed around until you broke my heart
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You leave me in the mornin', comin’ home late at night
But you have the nerve to tell me that you treated me right
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You are a liar and a cheater, too
The things you do to me, it’s coming home to you
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You are a liar and a cheater, too
The things you do to me, it’s coming home to you
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

Pack up your clothes and get out of my shack
And let my doorknob hit you in your back
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You leave me in the mornin', comin’ home late at night
But you have the nerve to tell me that you treated me right
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You are a liar and a cheater, too
The things you do to me, it’s coming home to you
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me

You are a liar and a cheater, too
The things you do to me, it’s coming home to you
Anytime for you, another time for me
Baby, you gonna be sorry, the way you treated me





Mister Blues Man (Larry Schmuki)

Folks call me mister Blues man
'cause I play the blues every day
Folks call me mister Blues man
'cause I play the blues every day
And when I play my good ol’ guitar
All my fears are flown away

If it wasn't for you women
I’d play for every bluesy man
If it wasn't for you women
I’d play for every bluesy man
And I've been playin’ and scratchin’ my guitar
Till all my strings are rubbed away

When I started to play my guitar
I was young and full of dreams
When I started to play my guitar
I was young and full of dreams
But now I’m a littl’bit older
some experience of life

Now you heard my story
And I hope you'll understand
Now you heard my story
And I hope you'll understand
Why all the women holler
Where can I find that real blues man



When it all comes down (B.B. King)

The world goes round
No one knows what it all means
You’re still out there

Looking for a brand new scene
And I’m still here
Never have been hard to find
When new gets old
I’ll be playing on your mind

When it all comes down, look for me - I’ll still be around

The day will come
when there’s nothing new to see
And then you’ll know
here is where you want to be
You know my song
used to take your heart away
That same old feel
is gonna bring you back to stay



Start It Up (R. Ford)
my, my, my baby, you're my cup of tea
my, my, my I'm loving what you do to me
you got a motor like a brand new car
so start it up for me

yes, yes, yes something in your sexy ways
yes, yes, yes gonna love you all of my days
you got a motor like a brand new car
so start it up for me

start it up, start it up

you make me feel like romancin'
start it up, start it up

you make me feel like dancin'
you got a motor like a brand new car
so start it up for me

the way you move such a finely tuned machine
such a solid groove the best I've ever seen
you got a motor like a brand new car
so start it up for me
my, my, my baby you’r my…………………

start it up, start it up……………..



Dreaming (Larry Schmuki)

I’M ON THE ROAD FOR MANY YEARS
MY LIFE IS JUST THE BLUES
HE GAVE ME SATISFACTION
‘CAUSE I HAD NOT MUCH TO LOOSE
I'VE SPENT MY LIFE IN SMOKY BARS
AND PLAYED MY OLD GUITAR
I SLEPT IN DIRTY HOTELBEDS
OR ON THE BACKSEAT OF MY CAR
I NEVER HAD MUCH MONEY
AND FOOD SOMETIMES WAS RARE
BUT ALL I NEED IS MY GUITAR
BUT I LOVE THE BLUES
LOVE THE SONG THAT THESE OLD MEN PLAY
THERE’S NOTHING, NOTHING LEFT TO SAY

THE FIRST PART OF THIS SONG
IS JUST A DREAM THAT I ONCE HAD
IN FACT I’M PRETTY SOCIALISED
AND MY LIFE AIN’T THAT BAD
I GOT MY HOME, A PRETTY WIFE
A CAR AND THREE NICE KIDS
I NEVER HAD TO STARVE OR SLEEP
ON ANY HARD BACKSEATS
I NEVER HAD MUCH MONEY
AND FOOD SOMETIMES WAS RARE
BUT ALL I NEED IS MY GUITAR
BUT I LOVE THE BLUES
LOVE THE SONG THAT THESE OLD MEN PLAY
THERE’S NOTHING, NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
