Give Me A Sign

Oh! Lord - give me a sign
I regret - this path of mine
I went astray - on my crooked road
Choices I made - became a heavy load

When I grew up - I hung with thugs
I started drinking - and went on drugs
Doing crimes - and sent to jail
Please help me Lord – 'cause I have failed

Solo:

Lord - when on parole
To manage out - I robbed and stole
Being caught - doing my crime
And once again - I was doing time

Throughout my life - I've truely tried
To straighten up - but always slide
A broken man - without no faith
Dear Lord - help me turn strait

Solo:

Lord - I'm sitting here
The end of life - it is so near
It's hard for me - but I try to pray
To straighten up - before my dying day

Oh! Lord - I'm out of time
Soon I'll be hanged - for my latest crime
I hope you hear - this prayer of mine
Oh! help me Lord - give me a sign
Please help me Lord - give me a sign

Come Back Josephine

It's been five long days since I heard a word from You
There's been five long days since I heard a word from You
It feels like eternity, I don't know what I'm gonna do
I've been checking my phone, going like an egg-bound hen
I've been checking my phone, going like an egg-bound hen
Am I losing your love or will you call me again

Come Back Josephine
Don't make another scene
I miss your huggin' and a kissin' and a cuddlin' and the sweet turtle dovin'
Come Back Josephine - PLEASE pick up the phone.

Somebody saw you last night hangin' out with another guy
Somebody saw you last night hangin' out with another guy
What's going on? C'mon and give me one more try.

Oh well I called your sister, your mama and your daddy too
Oh well I called your sister, your mama and your daddy too
They said you went down south, looking for that Blue Bayou.

Come Back Josephine
Don't make another scene
I miss your huggin' and a kissin' and a cuddlin' and the sweet turtle dovin'
Come Back Josephine - PLEASE pick up the phone.

SOLO

It's been five long days since I heard a word from You
There's been five long days since I heard a word from You
It seems like eternity, I don't know what I'm gonna do

Come Back Josephine
Don't make another scene
I miss your huggin' and a kissin' and a cuddlin' and the sweet turtle dovin'
Come Back Josephine - PLEASE pick up the phone.

Stay Away
There's a woman I know, with an evil mind.
I treated her right, she was all but kind.
Now she's stalking me, cause I left her behind.
Doesn't matter where I go, she's got her eyes on me.
Even in the men's room, she won,t let me be.
She sticks like glue, but I just wanna be free.

Wo-wo-wo-wo, Stay away, stay away
Wo-wo-wo-wo, can't you hear what I say.
Don't want you around, Stay away, stay away

As soon as I turn around, she comes too near.
She pours gas in my coffee, she pours diesel in my beer.
She's a mean mean woman, I am a man In fear.
Woke up last night, she was knockin at my door.
I said to her please; don't wanna see you no more.
This morning she was hiding, back in my fifty-four.

Wo-wo-wo-wo....

Solo

There's a woman I know, with an evil mind.
I treated her right, she is all but kind.
Now she's stalking me, cause I left her behind.

With a broom between her legs, she made a spin.
Flew right in through my window and said with a grin.
I put a spell on you, so you can never win.

Wo-wo-wo-wo....
