YOU GOT THE MAGIC
(J.C. Fogerty)

Mmmm, when the midnight ravens appear in your eyes,
Oh! And the mystery holdin' your soul is realized,
Shadows of night, faces in the fire, like visions in a dream, takin' me higher.

CHORUS:

You got the magic thrillin' me, you got the magic chillin' me,
You got the magic, shine your spell on me.

Whoa, when the hoodoo children of night gather near,
Ah! When the whirlwind whispers your name, I can hear,
Wind in the willows, scratchin' in the sand,
And the whole universe is at your command there.

CHORUS

Yeah.

You got the magic thrillin' me, you got the magic chillin' me, oooh!
You got the magic thrillin' me, you got the magic chillin' me, oooh!
You got the magic, shine your spell on me.

BETWEEN THE LINES
(J.C. Fogerty)

Between the lines, that's wond'rin' what to say, when you ain't sayin' nothin',
Between the lines, that's thinkin' about the silence that hides behind your smile,
Between the lines, that's walkin' on eggshells that whisper keep your footing,
Between the lines, that's watchin' what you're doin', pretendin' to be blind.

The truth is just a shadow, you can never pin it down,
And the words are always hollow, never yes or no, they're in the middle ground.

CHORUS:

Between the lines! Between the lines!
Between the lines! Between the lines!
Between the lines. Between the lines.

Between the lines, that's tryin' to guess the meanin', when there ain't none to begin with,
Between the lines, that's waitin' for the warlord to drop the other shoe,
Between the lines, that's wond'rin' why the answer is just another question,
Between the lines, that's thinkin' about the shotgun that's lookin' straight at you.

I was just a shadow, and I never made a sound.
But how can you be livin', when you're just standin' there on the middle ground.

CHORUS

Between the lines! Between the lines!
Between the lines! Between the lines!
Between the lines! Between the lines!
Between the lines! Between the lines!

Between the lines.

LEAVE MY WOMAN ALONE
(Ray Charles)

CHORUS:

If you don't want, you don't havta get into trouble,
If you don't want, you don't havta get into trouble,
If you don't want, you don't havta get into trouble,
You just leave my woman alone. Well!

CHORUS

I know that you are a playboy, and you've got women all over town,
But if I ever catch you sweet-talkin' my little girl,
I'm gonna lay your body down!

CHORUS

I know that you got the money, you got a new '57 too,
If I ever catch my little girl ridin' in your new car,
I'm gonna do some work on you!

CHORUS

CHORUS

You just leave my woman alone, yeah!
You just leave my woman alone, well!
You just leave my woman alone, mm-hmm.
You just leave my woman alone.

HOODOO MAN
(J.C. Fogerty)

There's a thing creepin' in the woods,
Like an ill wind that blows no good,
Women and children begin to howl,
When the moon-dog is on the prowl.

CHORUS:

I'm a hoodoo-voodoo-magic man, got the devil by the horns,
His mischief in my hands. Ooh-woo-woo!
Ooh-woo-wooooooooooo!

I can make like a big ugly bear,
I can fly like a bird in the air,
You could look, but you could not see,
You better make a move 'cause you know it's me.

CHORUS:

Every night, when the moon gets high,
Come the children through the hoodoo sky,
All the women, they know my name,
'Cause I can fade away, treat 'em all the same.

TELEPHONE
(J.C. Fogerty)

My telephone's ringin', early in the mornin'.
Somebody, guessa who? Sweet baby, it's you!
Say you're callin' from the station, oh I told you "Hold on, I'm on my way!" And all you got to say,

CHORUS:

"I wonder why you had to go, been so long and now I know,"
Sweet baby dear, everything will be allright,
'Cause I've been ringin', early in the mornin',
Somebody, guessa who? Sweet baby, it's you!

CHORUS

Somebody, guess who? Sweet baby, it was you.
Somebody, guessa guessa guessa who?
Sweet baby, it's all right. (X 5)

EVIL THING
(J.C. Fogerty)

You know I feel just like a prisoner, the way your love has chained me down,
So I gave your letter to the mailman, I turned your picture to the wall,
But still you have claimed me forever, and that's what scares me most of all!

CHORUS:
Ooh! You evil thing, why do you haunt me?
You evil thing, what good is love?

The other night, I had a feeling there was somebody else in my room,
Now I don't know if I was dreamin', but I still get a chill from your perfume.
When my telephone rings, and there's no answer, and the wind comes knockin' at the door,
I can see things flashin' by the window, Lord I can't take it much more!

CHORUS

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

So I gave your letter to the mailman, I turned your picture to the wall,
But still you have claimed me forever, and that's what scares me most of all!

HENRIETTA
(Fere-Hitzfeld)

(One, two, one, two, three, four...)

Henrietta, baby whatcha do to me?
Henrietta, you say that you wanna leave,
You got me so shook up, I never ever wanna break free.

Henrietta, I say you look so fine,
Henrietta, will your love be mine?
You're always on the move, hangin' on another line.

CHORUS:

The day your love went away, I thought that you was gonna stay
But it was an omen, I tried and tried,
Caught up by all your lies!

Henrietta, why wontcha treat me right?
Henrietta, you say you'll love with all your might,
Well, love me baby, love me all through the night.
Whoa!

CHORUS

Henrietta, why wontcha treat me right?
Henrietta, you say you'll love with all your might,
Well, love me baby, love me all through the night.

ON THE RUN
(J.C. Fogerty)

Close your eyes tonight, make believe the train will come along,
And carry me back where I should be.
Reach out through the night, and wash away the pain that wasted so much time,
And break my heart, break my mind.

CHORUS:

On the run, on the run, the sheriff come get me, say I'm on the run.
On the run, on the run, the sheriff come get me, and I'm on the run.

Standin' out in the rain, can't remember when I felt so all alone,
Tired to the bone.
But if I have to run, you know I'll keep the thing I've done inside of me,
Until the hangman sets me free.

CHORUS

Lookin' back on some imaginary time,
Thinkin' back when I was raised,
Lookin' at the blackbirds singin' on the line,
But they can't sing you back to me.

CHORUS

Do-do-do. Do-do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-doooo.
Do-do-do. Do-do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-dooooooooooooooo.
