Song lyrics from Georgia Warhorse

DIYO DAYO

She’s a rattlesnake, so beware of her fangs
A lightening strike, and its straight through your veins
No one can say, why she does what she’ll do
One mistake, diyo day

Diyo diyo dayo dayo
He’s a model saint, but they say he’s insane
He lives in a crate, in the wind and the rain
He had it all, but he threw it away

One mistake, diyo day
Diyo diyo dayo dayo
A man of men, he’s the king of the trade
Omnipotent, to the fools he enslaves

Wide-awake, from the nightmare they made
One mistake, diyo day
Diyo diyo dayo dayo

KING HUMMINGBIRD

A crown of red, king hummingbird
There upon your perch, say the word
And I’ll fall down on my knees and beg
For the life I took from you my king
Oh this empty thing I’ve done

Everywhere I go, I feel you there
Do you even know me?
Do you even care?

The deepest green, and rainbow blue
As delicate and light, as morning dew
Beating wings they whisper, a baby’s breath
Filling me with wonder, for all that is

But I took careful aim and I made no sound
For no reason I can think of now
Oh this empty thing I’ve done
Everywhere I go, I feel you there 

THE SWEETEST THING

Down by the sea staring at the sunset
All those colors of light like a flame through the heart
But I never saw a sunset woman till I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

Down by the sea starring on the heavens
All those stars in the sky those beacons of light
But I never even noticed them until I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

Tell what is this lament? I cant tell you
I’ve been a dead man running, all of my life
And I never felt a thing woman till I met you

The sweetest thing you’re the sweetest thing

ALL

Two chiefs vie for the pleasure of gain
When their boy hits you right in the face
they try to buy you off say its for the good of man
don’t even try to see if I’ll play the same game

I’ll give you all I got; I’ll give you all you want
I’ll give you all I got; I’ll give you all you want
You won’t want no more when I get through with you

Dance, dance, dance for change and the same old same old
You don’t realize that we’re in the same boat

Tell no truth but don’t lie step on me to sit upon high
But you wont be living out those dreams
When you’re trying to make me a slave

I’ll give you all I got; I’ll give you all you want
I’ll give you all I got; I’ll give you all you want
I’ll give you all you want from me

All this worshipping, are you set to maintain?
Hell no I ain’t going down to my knees

Oh so smooth always in my ear
How the futures gonna save me in time
You slip between the raindrops dancing like a king
But I ain’t gonna let you stay dry

I’ll give you all I got; I’ll give you all you want
I’ll give you all you want from me
Hell no I ain’t going down to my knees

GEORGIA WARHORSE

My shell is hard, my hooks like steel
My wings are fire and you cannot break my will
all these years you’ve tried to kill me
Boy you ain’t made a dent

See I’m a Georgia warhorse and I ain’t easy to kill
A bigger man than you he stepped on me
He put me under shoe just to see
What it’d do to me but I always roll out alive
See I’m a Georgia warhorse and I was built to survive
Well I heard you say, you got a knife
you gonna get more than you bargained for tonight
Cause I was born with a smile and a heart of stone
See I’m a Georgia warhorse and I ain’t easy to kill
Well I’d like to take, this time to say
Its been a pleasure but I must be on my way
Cause man ain’t built any jail, lord he can keep me in
See I’m a Georgia warhorse and I ain’t easy to kill

GOTTA KNOW

Hey there little flower, how do you grow
Does the sun light your power, I gotta know
I gotta know more, know more than you

Hello little star, I spied on you
They say you’re a million miles away
Tell me is that true, cause…

I gotta know more, know more than you
I went to the circus and I saw this bear
He was riding a bicycle trying to be human
We all laughed cause we knew he couldn’t do it
We ask the questions then make all our own answers up

Hello Lord, I got your number now
It took me a while but I figured you out
And now I know more,

know more than you
Now I know more,
 

I know more than any god in the hell or heavens knows
I know more than anybody could ever know
I know more, more is the science of this world
I finally understand, it cant be understood
I finally understand the good Lord can’t be understood

HIDE & SEEK

Devil behind you, run run away
But you got to turn and fight, to live another day

 

Whisper in the sawgrass, murmur in the pines
Lift your hands up and away, lift them off your eyes

Playing hide & seek, but my eyes are wide open
A voice says you’re right, another says you’re wrong
Well who speaks and who listens the weak or the strong
Can you feel the fear, deep within the mind
There’s no loss or gain in soul nothing real can ever die
I feel it…

 

Playing hide & seek, but my eyes are wide open
Disintegrate or liberate, I can’t think myself free
Standing by the VJ, I can hear them sing

 

That the truth it must be lived
and to wake up from the dream of madness
Playing hide & seek, but my eyes are wide open

SLOW, HOT & SWEATY

Its getting too fast now, a little too brash now
Got to slow down baby, one thing at a time
Make a little friction, while we get the slick on
Breathing nice and heavy, you’re drawing me out
Slow hot and sweaty, turn it on
Slow hot and sweaty, baby let go
Slow hot and sweaty, slip it and slide
Slow hot and sweaty, can you feel it deep inside
Your skin is shining, can you feel me pining
For that little something, something, you always do
Ya  sweet as a mango and steamy like the congo
Woman I can’t hold on much longer, hold on much longer
Slow hot and sweaty, turn it on
Slow hot and sweaty, baby let go
Slow hot and sweaty, slip it and slide
Slow hot and sweaty, can you feel it deep inside

BEAUTIFUL WORLD

Bad blood, I could crawl right out my mind
It’s a long day, long day when the sun won’t shine
But it feels like, fussing and fighting is all we do
Lord knows I can’t get enough of you

Bad blood, I could crawl right out of my mind
Ah girl, it’s a new day now we can make it shine
Listen to the birds sing their song

Listen to my heart beating strong

I just want to feel like I do when I’m with you
It’s a beautiful world
The darkness, it ain’t so deep
So I reach and I reach and I reach, Higher
set me free

Ah girl, it’s a new day now we can make it shine
Listen to the birds sing their song
Listen to my heart beating strong
I just want to feel like I do when I’m with you

It’s a beautiful world

THE HOTTEST SPOT IN HELL

Widow woman, tax man he’s gonna
Run her off any way he can, may you have
The hottest spot I hell

Steel gleam, in his eye he done
Bought and paid for a world he bled dry

May you have, the hottest spot I hell
May you have the hottest spot I hell
Everglade, all around
He won’t be happy till he burn it all down
May you have, the hottest spot I hell


Pretty woman, evil man, he’s gonna
Whip her ass anytime he can
May you have, the hottest spot I hell

May you have, the hottest spot I hell
Slave driver, made his brand, he’s gonna
Burn his number in the back of our hands
May you have, the hottest spot I hell

All these years, all this time
I can’t let go, Lord the grip on my mind

Yes I’ve lived in the hottest spot I hell
Yeah I’ve been in the hottest spot I hell

LULLABY

Let me rock you to sleep, pretty baby
Let me rock you to sleep, pretty girl

When I look down at you
I see all I need to see, to be a man
I feel all I need to feel, I understand

So let me rock you to sleep
Let me rock you to sleep, Pretty baby
Let me rock you, let me rock you
Let rock you to sleep

And I feel deep inside, all I got to do
To protect you from the night
And every evil they do
So let me rock you to sleep, pretty baby

Let me rock you t sleep, pretty girl
Let me rock you to sleep
Let me rock you to sleep
Let me rock you, rock you

My baby, my baby…
 

Song lyrics from Orange Blossoms

Orange Blossoms

well I snuck to her window to leave her a note
will you come meet me at the back of the grove?
all the trees were in bloom that sweet smell in the air
we were trebling together we were young we were scared

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms then I'm there

we swam in the lake we watched fire flies by night
she was my princess and I was her Knight
but her daddy didn't like me He ain't like how I look
he said leave that boy be and that’s all that it took

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms
then I'm there

but I remember her vow How she wouldn't forget me
and all these years later I can't even remember her name

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms
then I'm there

where did she go

The Devil You Know

well don’t try to change the subject again
hide and seek with yourself it ain’t a game you can win
if ya gonna be dumb boy you got to be tough

if we changed up places you’d roll like a dime
yeah you hurt yeah you hurt yeah you know it ain’t right
I ain’t going I ain’t going to front you this time… because you…

you turned on me for the Devil you know
you turned on me for the Devil you know

well you can’t get free without some blood sweat and tears
that voice in your head has got you all balled up in fear
time to, to pack your bags and tell yourself goodbye

habit got you changed mind body and soul
and you’ll never feel free until you learn to let go of that
That bag full of bricks you been dragging around

you turned on me for the Devil you know
you turned on me for the Devil you know

Everything Good Is Bad

seems like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

your love is like the sweet forbidden fruit in life
i’m another woman’s man you’re another man’s wife
we both know the difference between right and wrong
life is full of temptation it’s hard to be strong

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

when I kissed your lips I made a big mistake
your love is like a habit a habit I can’t break
in my heart I lied cuz in my mind I know
with you I want to be with her I still belong

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

all the things you want to be maybe wrong to society
if there’s a choice between silk and satin they both feel good to me

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

She Don't Know

she believes in what I tell her she believes in what I do
many times I’ve spoke to hear my own voice
somehow she still believes

lord but she don’t know how much I love her
and she don’t know how much I need
if the morning finds her gone I don’t know that I could carry on
she don’t know

she believes in what I do she believes even if I don’t

lord but she don’t know how much I love her
and she don’t know how much I need
if the morning finds her gone I don’t know that I could carry on
she don’t know

The Truth

darling wait for me I’m coming home
keep those home fires burning bright
don’t leave me alone

night becomes day
i’ll find my way
the golden moment has arrived

the bluest of blue skies
all I see when I open my eyes
heartache all that misery
can’t hold back the light of my life

night becomes day
i’ll find my way
the golden moment has arrived

one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth

no words can say No words won’t mean a thing
no answers tell what you mean what you mean to me

WYLF

magnetism chemistry feel the electricity
coming off of you
there’s no need to try to hide that come hither in your eyes
I know you want it too

this is what you’re looking for
I seen it on the break
this is what you’re looking for

your fingers set a fire in my skin a deep desire
oh so naturally
don’t play shy or act afraid I fell in this trap you laid
oh so willingly
I feel it on the fly smooth as move with a velvet glide
do you want to really know the answers to
so many hard questions that you’re asking
baby how could I prove that I’m right

this is what you’re looking for
I seen it on the break
this is what you’re looking for
I know baby I know it and you know it
this is what you’re looking for

On Fire

well she’s on the dance floor at your local jook
trying to sweat a bunch of fools she done already took
but when that gal gets down you can’t help but stare
cause that frames lit and smoking like a signal flare

she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire

we tried to look away we all tried to be cool
but she had an ass as thick as an army mule’s
she asked out for a drink just a batting those eyes
we all was reaching for our wallets man she’s a light

she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire

with a smooth proposition she’s got you in hand
I hear you say you don’t care boy are you a man?

she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire
she’s on fire

Move It On

come on baby come on yeah
come on whisper in my ear
if you ain’t going to make your intentions sugar
make ‘em crystal clear
cause every second is another golden opportunity
slipping on by
another chance Lord another chance baby
for me to make it make it alright

so we
move it on over move it on
move it o over to the high side
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side

it’s a sticky situation Lord yes
when you don’t give a damn
and if you ain’t been taught some manners boy
then she’s bound to smack your hand

so you got to
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side

it’s a hard nose world that we live in
and we know life is full of pain
it’s a hard nose world that we live in
and its only love between us woman
keep us both from going insane

move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side
move it on over move it on
move it on over to the high side

Higher You Climb

sook operator since the day you was born
flash a little money from some rock you sold
well they say the higher you climb further you fall
then you’d leave your young’ns with nothing at all

spend the grocery money trying to make you a name
while your kids can’t read or write I guess you ain’t going change
and now you say they got you pimping for the DEA
rolling on your boys cause you say you getting paid

the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall

the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall

Dew Drops

mama don’t you know how much I miss you
but I am stronger, stronger now
all these children cold faces Lord they followed me some how
I got to get away right now

mama ain’t a day goes by I don’t think about him
well I can see his face still
dull grey eyes burnt out to ash Lord to hell and gone again
I got to get away from him

i’m walking on moonlight
walking in the starlight place in my mind
walking on moonlight in the day
sipping on dew drops
float above the green treetops and it all
walking on moonlight in the day

i’m walking on moonlight
walking in the starlight place in my mind
walking on moonlight in the day
sipping on dew drops
float above the green treetops and it all
walking on moonlight in the day

Ybor City

the night is cold here on this ground
I hear that dog a howling makes me want to smile - cause
I know a rowdy place where
the whiskeys warm and women are too
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to love me through and through

the tensions mounting boy them bullets fly
roll over on my back and stare into the sky
them stars look cold and lonesome
but I know where the ladies are sweet as wine
when I get to Ybor City
all the women going to love me out my mind

give me a minute boys
I ain’t dead yet
it’s just I’m tired of fighting
let me catch my breath - cause
I know a place that smells of
cigars and sweet, sweet perfume
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to treat me like a king
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to treat me like a king

all you women going to treat me like a king

all you women going to treat me like a king

fighting for my life said around midnight
all you women going to treat me like a king
all you women going to treat me like a king

I Believe (In Everything)

I believe in everything
from a river running backwards
to a bee when it stings
and I believe
in the voices out here
telling me to hold on
but let go of my fear

a childhood imagination
has been my salvation
one cloud at a time
lord I’m dreaming
let me look upon her
one more time
this beauty that I love – she’s why

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

I believe in what I can’t change
in a hard lesson learned
and the strength from my pain
and I believe
in what I can’t prove
in the joy of not knowing
and the misunderstood

let go of my past
let go of my future
one cloud at a time
yes I’m dreaming
let me look upon her
one more time
this beauty that I love
before she’s gone, before she’s gone

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

the memory of one moment
is the beginning and the end of who I am

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
