Track Name: I miss you so
Well if you could see how much I’m cryin’

There’s no point, no use denyin’

Baby, I miss you so



Here I am alone and wanderin’

All over town just lookin’ for something

Baby, I need you so





I remember the day I made you mine

And that’s getting me through these hard hard times

Just counting the time ‘til once more I‘m

Back again with you



Like a sunny day after the rain

I know that soon we’ll meet again

Baby, I miss you so




You shone a light to guide my way

Girl, I’m coming home to stay (cause)

Baby, I miss you so
Track Name: Tack-tack boogie
Six in the morning in an usual way
Don’t mind the time, listen what I say:
Tack tack
She should be on her way
and I just wait and wait for her and pray

Never have enough despite the dough
flippin’ and floppin’ all night long
Tack tack
I used to tell her so
When this boogie woogie starts can feel my mind outta control

Her scent, her taste, for goodness sake!
Just can’t wait for another date to see her again
Dance to the tack tack boogie



Her scent, her taste, for goodness sake!
Just can’t wait for another date to see her again
Dance the tack tack boogie

Here I am feelin’ so insecure
But when she comes along she brings me rock’n’roll and Tack tack
Why is my love so strong?
I don’t know, but I just had to come here and write this song

I need her so much when I’m so blue
I’m so glad she’s gonna do
the Tack tack
and boogie woogie too

Dancing the tack tack boogie the way we use to do

Dancing the tack tack boogie the way we use to do

Dancing the tack tack boogie the way we use to do
Track Name: Three chords & the Truth
I can’t be me when you expect that I’m another
Why can’t you see that I fell out in disgrace
To make you feel that’s no point in hurt each other
When you decide that I must lose this race

I don’t have nothing but this old piece of paper,
A pen and my guitar to let you see it through
This old poor heart that I guess its needs a mending
All I have got is three chords and the truth

Three chords and the truth when I’m so lonesome
Three chords and the truth when I’m so blue
Three chords and the truth when you leave me baby and I can’t stop lovin’ you
Three chords and the truth never can lose

I love you babe and I want you to be a bit toughtful
About all things I renounced just for you
I’m aware you did similar things for me too
I’m glad you did, let me see how much are you.

Just wrote these lines trying to find the purpose,
Of all the good and bad things that I do
So as you can see, this tune has some mojo
Just written with three chords and the truth
Track Name: A cheat and a liar
If I don’t get away this morning
I believe that I will surely go insane

I’ve been thinkin’ all night long
Now I’m sure it would be wrong for me to stay

She could do much better than me
The only thing I’d get her is misery

I really thought that I could stay this time
I really thought that I should make her mine
But now I must accept just what I am
A heart-breaking lying cheating sham
So now I got to run again and hide and get alone
Like a coward or a child runnin’ crying for his home
Or a lizard once more sprawling crawling underneath his stone… underneath his stone

So I close the door behind me
And the noonday sun will find me far away

Well I guess I think I’m clever
Just to run away forever in this way

No woman needs that kind of man
Checking out as soon as I can

I really thought that I could stay this time
I really thought that I should make her mine
But now I must accept just what I am
A heart-breaking lying cheating sham
So now I got to run again and hide and get alone
Like a coward or a child runnin’ crying for his home
Or a lizard once more sprawling crawling underneath his stone…
I’m too tough for LOVE
Track Name: Y llegaste tú
Estaba en casa preguntándome cuál, cuál, cuál
Podría ser la razón de mi infelicidad
Jamás pensé que en todo el mundo pudiera existir
Una chica entre un millón hecha para mí

Y llegaste tú, caminando así
Y llegaste tú, haciéndome reir
Nunca pensé que encontraría a alguien que curase mi blues
Y desde algún lugar, perdido, llegaste tú

Había perdido,incluso, la sonrisa
Podías ver mi tristeza, kilómetros atrás
Acostumbrado a la soledad y ya rendido al blues
desde el medio de la nada, llegaste tú

Y llegaste tú, caminando así
Y llegaste tú, haciéndome reir
Nunca pensé que encontraría a alguien que curase mi blues
Y desde algún lugar, perdido, llegaste tú

Y llegaste tú, caminando así
Y llegaste tú, haciéndome reir
Nunca pensé que encontraría a alguien que curase mi blues
Y desde algún lugar, perdido, llegaste tú

Y llegaste tú, caminando así
Y llegaste tú, haciéndome reir
Nunca pensé que encontraría a alguien que curase mi blues
Y desde algún lugar, perdido, llegaste tú
Track Name: Spring is in the air
Spring all around
Grass is green
But I’m as blue as I’ve ever been
The sun is shining
Down on me
But you ain’t where you s’posed to be
Didn’t u say
You’d come to stay when spring is in the air.

Winter’s gone
Warm sunrays (have)
Melted all the snow away
Flower buds are
Poking through
Seems they’re looking out for you
You made a vow
To be here now when spring is in the air

Without you the sun just burns
And the flowers make me sneeze
And the birdsong is just noise
Baby come back to me please.

I don’t know
How many springs
Have faded since you spread your wings
But my heart tells me
'Never quit -
You must believe that this is it.
This is the year (that)
she’ll be here when spring is in the air’

Without you the sun just burns
And the flowers make me sneeze
And the birdsong is just noise
Baby come back to me please.

I don’t know
How many springs
Have faded since you spread your wings
But my heart tells me
'Never quit -
You must believe that this is it.
This is the year (that)
she’ll be here when spring is in the air'
Track Name: Won't let nobody
I won’t let nobody kiss me
Nobody hug me
Nobody touch me, nobody love me
Nobody gets me baby ‘til you’re out of jail

I won’t call nobody baby
Nobody honey
Nobody with me spending my money
Nobody gets me baby til you’re out of jail

You been inside for way too long
I’m wastin time writin’ prison songs
Don’t know how much I can take
I gotta send a file in a cake

I won’t have no Honkytonkin
No house a-shakin’
No roof raisin’, no whoopee makin’
No celebration baby til you’re out of jail

I won’t let nobody kiss me
Nobody hug me
Nobody touch me, nobody love me
Nobody gets me baby ‘til you’re out of jail

I won’t call nobody baby
Nobody honey
Nobody with me spending my money
Nobody gets me baby til you’re out of jail

On the day they set you free
I’m gonna get you back with me
I’ll be waitin’ outside for you
Cos you and me got plenty to do
When I get alone with you

I won’t have no Honkytonkin
No house a-shakin’
No roof raisin’, no whoopee makin’
No celebration baby til you’re out of jail

No celebration baby til you’re out of jail

No celebration baby til you’re out of jail
Track Name: It's up to you
Baby, I’m tellin’ you
All I’ve got is for you
From my darker, cloudy nights
To the most precious sunshine
You should have known I was tellin’ no lie

I am ready to depart
I’d love to have you by my side
So, consider yourself
that this could be the end
or a new start for us again

I know I’m no good at all
Don’t wan’t to hurt you anymore
But I just can´t find a better way
It’s up to you, that’s what I say

Solo

It has been a really great adventure
Walkin’ the world next to you
So I’d love to carry on, together see what’s goin’ on
You must decide baby, that’s all I want

I’m aware that’s not an easy task
To think in all those things before the dusk
But remember, I love you
And I promise to be true
You should think about it to avoid your blues

I know I’m no good at all
Don’t wan’t to hurt you anymore
But I just can´t find a better way
It’s up to you, that’s what I say
Track Name: Down tools
Well. I like my job.
It suits me.
Don’t mean I wanna do it for free.

Management take us for fools,
One more push: down tools!

Well, I have taken
Much as I can
Never forget I’m a union man

Management take us for fools,
One more push: down tools!

Well I don’t wanna cause no trouble
I don’t wanna cause no fuss
They gotta realise we’re syndicalised and they don’t wanna mess with us.

Well, I won’t flinch
I won’t shirk
I get pretty proud of a good day’s work

Management take us for fools,
One more push: down tools!

Boss and a worker
Can get along fine
I ain’t trying to take what isn’t mine

Management take us for fools,
One more push: down tools!

Well I don’t wanna cause no trouble
I don’t wanna cause no fuss
They gotta realise we’re syndicalised and they don’t wanna mess with us.
Track Name: En otra vida
Desperté la otra noche decepcionado al ver que te soñé mientras te ibas
trataba de aferrarme inútilmente a ti, pero era tarde, ya te perdías

En el golpe de realidad que esfumará todo el recuerdo de aquellos días
Vuelvo a lo mío, cuando menos me lo espere volverás, como agua fría

Sin siquiera avisar con antelación
Haciéndome sentir loco
Dependiendo de esta situación
Perdiéndote poco a poco
¿Tal vez me recreo en lo que pudo ser?
No lo sé ni yo tampoco
En otra vida

En otra vida que quizás
No nos presente tanta dificultad
Otro mundo en que vivir
Este sueño junto a tí
En otra vida.

Sabes que en otra vida no te dejaré ir sin demostrar lo que decías
Mientras en esta me tengo que conformar con el recuerdo de tu sonrisa

Tampoco es ningún drama, pero no se muy bien lo qué he de hacer en mi guarida.
Sabiendo que otra noche tonta volverás a recordarme que fuiste mía.

¿Tal vez me recreo en lo que pudo ser?
No lo sé ni yo tampoco
En otra vida

En otra vida que quizás
No nos presente tanta dificultad
Otro mundo en que vivir
Este sueño junto a tí
En otra vida.
