If you're thinkin' you want a stranger, there's one coming home. Bought you a silk gown and perfume today. Picked up some roses and champagne on the way. Oh I called to ask you to put some soft music on. Any Old Love Won't Do. I've seen ladies look at me With want to, in their eyes But each time they do, I think of you And it makes me realize. Just any old love won't do No, any old love won't do I don't want to love if it isn't with you Just any old love won't do.
You've got the only arms I've ever come runnin' to Love has always led me to your bed And any old love won't do. No, any old love won't do Just any old love won't do I don't want to love if it isn't with you Just any old love won't do.
No, any old love won't do Any old love won't do Just any old love won't do I don't want to love if it isn't with you Just any old love won't do. Fool Hearted Memory. Nickels and dimes, memories and wine She's on his mind once again The same ol' stew, the same ol' fool Played by the rules but didn't win There's an old love in his heart that he can't lose He tried forgettin' but he knows that it's no use. He's got a fool hearted memory It won't let him see, that she walked out the door He's got a fool hearted memory, he sits patiently Here every night so it can fool him more.
She was his girl, his only world That string of pearls that slipped away A thousand dimes, a thousand times He doesn't mind what they say He fills the jukebox, then plays the same ol' song He fills his glass and then he turns her memory on.
But it's a fool hearted memory It won't let him see, that she walked out the door He's got a fool hearted memory, he sits patiently Here every night so it can fool him more. Marina Del Rey. We said goodbye in Marina del Rey I had a good time was the last thing I heard her say as I walked away And on this plane back to Tennessee My mind comes across her memory And yesterday in Marina del Rey.
On a hidden beach under a golden sun She spread a blanket that we laid down on And loved the world away in Marina del Rey And as we looked into each other's eyes We found our body's lost in paradise Like castaways in Marina del Rey. Like the ocean tides, high and lows Love sometimes comes And goes away in Marina del Rey And as this plane is touching down Tears touch my eyes for I have found My heart has stayed in Marina del Rey. On a hidden beach under a golden sun She spread a blanket that we laid down on And loved the world away in Marina del Rey And as we looked into each other's eyes We found our body's lost in paradise Like castaways in Marina del Rey We said goodbye in Marina del Rey.
I come and go as I please. From down here, up North and inbetween, But baby it's a shame 'cause I always feel the same When I can't see Texas from here.
I can't see Texas from here. No matter how I try, it makes me want to cry. So if you see me lookin' down, I'm tryin' not to show this frown 'Cause I can't see Texas from here. I can't say I don't like Tennessee. The people here have all been good to me. So please don't take offense if I start to get intense Just 'cause I can't see Texas from here.
Now who wouldn't notice the fire in your eyes Or the bitter direction of impending goodbyes I've followed and folded, I'm wilted in place At the sight of you standing with streaks down your face. When your heart broke and running from the reason You got your heart broke, now don't give up on believing in me Heart broke, who kept me from leaving?
With my heart broke. Now pride is Bobby Grove - Jealous Dreams / Be Still drag and a bore when you're lonely Sheer madness prevails upon reason to you But all is not lost, it's only mistaken That's small consolation but I know just how you feel.
Nobody said it was going to be easy We all have feelings that need a softer touch But nobody said that it would not be worth it The human condition continues as such. When your heart broke and running from the reason You've got me heart broke, now don't give up on believing in me Heart broke, who kept me from leaving?
With my heart broke, you got me heart broke. What Would Your Memories Do. What would your memories do If they didn't have my mind to run through If they didn't have my heart to break into What would your memories do. Wonder what would happen If one morning your memories woke up to find mine gone Would they go as crazy without me, as I have without you Would they last as long.
If someday they found the door to my mind Had been locked from inside by my heart What would they do if they couldn't use you any longer to tear me apart.
Amarillo By Morning. Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone. Everything that I've got is just what I've got on. When that sun is high in that Texas sky I'll be bucking it to county fair.
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo I'll be there. They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe. Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way. Well I'll be looking for eight when they pull that gate, And I'm hoping that judge ain't blind.
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's on my mind. I ain't got a dime, but what I got is mine. I ain't rich, but Lord I'm free. Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's where I'll be. I said goodbye to you this mornin' With only these words to explain I said I'd found someone I love better But I still hear your voice call my name. I thought I heard you callin' my name Funny, I still feel this way. Your voice seem so close, but I knew That by now you were many miles away.
I walk through the streets of the city People passing by think it's so strange I'm talkin' but there's no one beside me I thought I heard you call my name.
I thought I heard you callin' my name Funny I still feel this way Your voice seems so close but I knew That by now you're many miles away. I'm finding out how hot an old flame can burn You're a feeling I haven't forgot, the love I can't unlearn You've become a memory I can't live without You'll always be a fire I can't put out. I don't know how to handle the dream you left behind It's like a lighted candle, burning up my mind At least I'm happy knowing what love is all about You'll always be a fire I can't put out.
Embers to ashes, that's how it should be You'd think by know my heart would know and it could set you free The things I've tried, the tears I've cried and I guess there's no doubt You'll always be a fire I can't put out. I don't know how to handle the dream you left behind It's like a lighted candle, burning up my mind At least I'm happy knowing what love is all about You'll always be a fire I can't put out You'll always be a fire I can't put out. Oh how you sparkle, and oh how you shine.
That flush on your cheeks is more than the wine. And he must do something that I didn't do. Whatever he's doing, it looks good on you.
You look so good in love. You want him, that's easy to see. And I wish you still wanted me. He must have stolen some stars from the sky, And gave them to you to wear in your eyes. I had my chances, but I set you free. And now I wonder why I couldn't see. Darling I've wasted a lot of years not seeing the real you, But tonight your beauty is shining through.
And I never took the time to let you know, So before he takes you away please let me say. You ain't never fell as far as when you fall in love Except the fall you take when you've been loved and given up When you have your heart and soul rubbed into the dirt An proof bottle of tear-stopper will take away the hurt.
Give me an proof bottle of tear-stopper and I'll start feeling I forgot her Get a little loose and lose her memory And I won't think I'm close to dying because it dries up all my crying An proof bottle of tear-stopper always sets me free. It ain't easy losing love although it's turned out bad All at once you're turning off old feelings you once had But I found a helping hand, right here in my hand And proof bottle of tear-stopper will help me take 'em out.
Right or Wrong. Right or wrong, I'll always love you Though you're gone I can't forget Right or wrong, I'll keep on dreaming Still I wake with that same old regret. All along I knew I'd lose you Though I prayed that you'd be true In your heart please just remember Right or wrong, I'm still in love with you. All along I knew I'd lose you Though I prayed that you'd be true, oh Lord In your heart please just remember Right or wrong, I'm still in love with you. Let's Fall To Pieces Together.
Pardon me, you left your tears on the jukebox, And I'm afraid they got mixed up with mine. I don't mean to pry, It's just that I noticed you going out of your mind. Looks like we're two of a kind.
Let's fall to pieces together. Why should we both fall apart? Let's fall to pieces together Right here in each other's arms. Alone is much better together, And the worst is still yet to come. So let's share the rest of the tears That are left from two hearts that just came undone. Why should we go crazy alone?
Cold Fort Worth beer just ain't no good for jealous. I try it night after night. You're in someone else's arms in Dallas. Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind? Darlin' while you're busy burning bridges, Burn one for me if you get time. Does Fort Worth ever cross you mind? You left me here to be with him in Dallas, And I know it hurt you at the time.
But I wonder now if it makes a difference. The Cowboy Rides Away. I knew the stakes were high right from the start. When she dealt the cards, I bet my heart. Now I just found a game that I can't play, And this is where the cowboy rides away. And my heart is sinking like the setting sun, Setting on the things I wish I'd done. It's time to say goodbye to yesterday. This is where the cowboy rides away.
We've been in and out of love and in-between. And now we play the final showdown scene. As the credits roll a sad song starts to play, And this is where the cowboy rides away.
And my heart is sinking like a setting sun, Setting on the things I wish I'd done. Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say, And this is where the cowboy rides away.
The Fireman. Hey, they call me the fireman, that's my name Makin' my rounds all over town Puttin' out old flames. Hey, well, everybody'd like to have what I've got I can cool 'em down when they're smolderin' hot I'm the fireman, that's my name.
Last night they had a bad one A mile or two down the road Well, my buddy walked out And left his woman burnin' out of control. Well, I was down there in 'bout an hour or so With a little mouth to mouth, she was ready to go I'm the fireman, that's my name.
They call me the fireman, that's my name Makin' my rounds all over town Puttin' out old flames. Hey well, everybody'd like to have what I've got I can cool 'em down when they're smolderin' hot I'm the fireman, that's my name, burn 'em up.
I've got fire-engine, red t-bird automobile In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill I work twenty-four on and twenty-four off When they get too hot, they just give me a call I'm the fireman, that's my name.
Hey well, everybody'd like to have what I've got I can cool 'em down when they're smolderin' hot I'm the fireman, that's my name They call me the fireman, that's my name. The Chair. Well, excuse me, but I think you've got my chair. No, that one's not taken, I don't mind If you sit here, I'll be glad to share. Yeah, it's usually packed here on Friday nights. Oh, if you don't mind, could I talk you out of a light. Well, thank you, could I drink you a buy?
Oh, listen to me, what I mean is can I buy you a drink? Anything you please. Oh, you're welcome, well, I don't think I caught your name. Are you waiting for someone to meet you here? Well, that makes two of us glad you came. No, I don't know the name of the band, but they're good.
Aren't they, would you like to dance? Yeah, I like this song too, it reminds me of you and me. Well, baby do you think there's a chance That later on I could drive you home?
No, I don't mind at all. Oh, I like you too, and to tell you the truth That wasn't my chair after all. You're Something Special To Me.
An angel's what you are And now I see You're not just someone else You're something special to me. Every man has a dream And you made mine come true How it happened, I don't know or care I'm just happy I found you. Wrapped in the arms of love Is where I'll be For all the world to see You're something special to me. And every man has a dream And you made mine come true How it happened, I don't know or care I'm just happy I found you.
And wrapped in the arms of love Is where I'll be For all the world to see You're something special to me It's all such a mystery You're something special to me.
Haven't You Heard. Here I stand with my finger on his doorbell My mind goes back to what I did last night You see I finally talked his wife into leaving him And I'm just here to convince my conscience that it's alright Well I can see my old friend sittin' there just starin' And his little boy's cryin' words, are welded in my mind.
Haven't you heard? Daddy's gone crazy Haven't you heard? Mama is gone And either way, I am the loser And I've been crying all night long Mister, haven't you heard? In Too Deep. Ain't love a strain, ain't it a pain in your heart I ain't worth the trouble anyhow I'd like to give it up, I've had enough and I've done my part But I'm in too deep to pull out now.
Good things we've had are going bad and I don't know why I'd turn it around if I knew how I'm pushing aside all my pride and it's worth a try 'Cause I'm in too deep to pull out now. I can't step aside and let you slide right out of my life It would 'cause more hurt than the law allows I'll get us back on the track and it'll be all right 'Cause I'm in too deep to pull out now.
Lefty's Gone. A jukebox introduced us when the 60's was still young, If you got the money Honey got my nickels one by one, I tried to imitate that song, it's not right but Lefty's gone. And always late breaks my heart and every song he sang I played the part, I heard he was sad and lived alone, It's not right but Lefty's gone. He played the fair in Dallas one year In the cold October rain, Some folks stayed home in one But he sang just the same, I caught a chill before I got home, It's not right but Lefty's gone, I heard he was sad and lived alone.
It's not right but Lefty's gone, It don't seem like he was around that long, It's not right but Lefty's gone. I burn with desire each time my heart fans the fire To that old flame that burns inside of me. She cried when I left her, now I cry to forget her. Oh, how foolish I was to ever want to leave. I had to be crazy to say goodbye. Nobody in his right mind would've left her. Even my heart was smart enough to stay behind. I still carry her picture; I wish her well With the new love I know she's found by now.
Each night finds me dreamin', each day I spend thinkin' How much I wish she was still around. I thought you and me were something special Thought you thought that way too Now I know that this old boy just ain't the Best you think you'll ever do. It ain't cool to be crazy about you It ain't suave or debonair to let you know I care, like I do It ain't smart to be so reckless with my heart I should've known right from the start I'd end up like a fool Believe me, it ain't cool. All of my friends they tried to tell me What and what not to do It took a while for them to sell me But finally they got through.
It ain't cool to be crazy about you It ain't suave or debonair to let you know I care, like I do It ain't smart to be so reckless with my heart Should've known right from the start I'd end up like a fool Believe me, it ain't cool.
Ocean Front Property. If you leave me, I won't miss you, And I won't ever take you back. Girl, your mem'ry won't ever haunt me 'Cause I don't love you, and now if you'll buy that. I got some ocean front property in Arizona. From my front porch you can see the sea. If you'll buy that, I'll throw the golden gate in free. I don't worship the ground you walk on. I never have and that's a fact. I won't follow or try to find you 'Cause I don't love you, My Heart (Vinyl), and now if you'll buy that.
Rhythm Of The Road. I'd rather be home But I make my livin' on the go Big silver eagle spreads her wings And drops us at another show.
I think about holdin' my baby tonight As I listin to the big wheels roll Three days into a six week tour Gettin' in the rhythm of the road. We pick and sing Say, "Goodnight" then we'll be flyin' My world's a chain of one-night-stands Strung together by the center line. I don't know where I'll wake up tomorrow But I can't let the tempo slow Every town is just another beat Livin' in the rhythm of the road. The rhythm of the road's got a mind of its own If you find it it'll drive you insane Like the clackity-clack of a railroad track I'm rattlin' like an old freight train.
Towns are flashin' by, the folks are wavin', "Hi" They all start to look the same Gotta stop for a minute, be glad I'm in it Remember just why I came. Those highway signs Lord, they keep me on the move I think about givin' it up sometimes And gettin' in a diff'ren groove.
But I just let the days slide by Get goin' with the flow A four four beat's the only time I keep Livin' in the rhythm of the road. A four four beat's the only time I keep Livin' in the rhythm of the road, yeah Livin' in the rhythm of the road. Hank Hey, mister bartender Please dont be so slow I've got time for one more round And a six pack to go. Tomorrow mornin's Sunday I'm gonna be feelin' low So please, please bartender I wanna six pack to go I've been drinkin all day long Taking in the town Oh, I've done spent my whole paycheck Justa honky tonkin' round.

George Hey, Hey, mister bartender Please dont be so slow I've got time for one more round And a six pack to go.

Well, we dont have time to pay my rent We ain't-a gonna worry though We've got time for one more round And a six pack to go! One six pack to go! I remember that old Frio river Where I learned to swim And it brings to mind another time Where I wore my welcome thin.
By transcendental meditation I go there each night But I always come back to myself Long before daylight. Am I Blue. Am I blue? Just this mornin' over coffee I sat there cryin' 'Cause you're gone long gone I didn't know just how much I was gonna miss you Til' I spent my first night alone.
Yes I'm blue How could I have been such a fool? Now look at all the misery I'm goin' through Am I blue? Tried to call And say, "I'm sorry" I couldn't get you on the line You'll never know just how much I'm wishin' you would show up And say, "You've changed your My Heart (Vinyl). I told her I wouldn't miss her at all as she walked to the door I couldn't care less if she didn't care anymore And with tears in my eyes, I lied, I was glad we were through As she drove away cryin' at the famous last words of a fool.
Famous last words of a fool Famous last words of a fool "You won't break my heart and I don't love you" The famous last words of a fool. The first night without her would be easy, I kept telling myself All the while dying at the thought of her lying somewhere else There'll be nothing to it, I'll easily find someone new As my breaking heart echoed the famous last words of a fool. Famous last words of a fool Famous last words of a fool "You won't break my heart and I don't love you" The famous last words of a fool "You won't break my heart and I don't love you" Famous last words of a fool.
Baby Blue. She looked so much like a lady, but she was so much like a child. A devil when she held me close, an angel when she smiled. She always held it deep inside, but somehow I always knew She's go away when the grass turned green and the sky turned baby blue. And baby blue was the color of her eyes. Baby blue like the Colorado skies. Like a breath of spring, she came and left, And I still don't know why, So here's to you and Bobby Grove - Jealous Dreams / Be Still holds my baby blue tonight.
She brought colors to my life that my eyes had never touched. And when she taught me how to care, I never cared so much. I try not to think of her, but I fall asleep and do, And drift off where the grass is green and the sky is baby blue.
If you got a Cadillac boy And a 40 room shack boy A bucket full of money And a tree full of honey But if you're gettin' no huggin' No smoochin' or a muggin'. If you're ridin' on a gravy train Instead of walkin' down lovers lane You can't make, hey boy 'Cause you're goin' the wrong way boy You gotta get a a little honey It's better than money.
If they call you a big man 'Cause you got a lot of bottom land If you're kin to the President And ya help from the Government But if you're gettin' no attention You're better off on a pension. If you got a string of long cars And your smokin' them 4-bit cigars You ain't so well to do Unless you get a little coochy-coo It takes a little bit a smackin' Or your life's lackin'.
Baby's Gotten Good At Goodbye. What a rotten day this turned out to be. I still can't believe she'd leave so easily. She just got all her things, threw 'em into a pile, Then she loaded her car and said after a while, She'd done this before, but this time she didn't cry. That's why I'm sittin' on the front steps, Staring down the road, wond'rin' if she'll come back - This time I don't know.
After she packed, when she looked back There were no tears in her eyes, And that's got me worried thinking Maybe my baby's gotten good at goodbye. All the times before she'd break down and cry. She'd make her threats, but her heart wasn't set on goodbye. She just wanted me to hear what she had to say.
Now I'm lost for words, since she went away. She may not return for this time she didn't cry. Bigger Man Than Me. I never thought too much about her leavin' I'd find someone there was no doubt But this time the feelin' is strange and different Since she's been gone there's one thing I found out.
It takes a mighty man to live with lonesome Some big men might live with misery But there's one thing I know, for sure it's certain It's for sure it's gonna take a lot bigger man than me. I've never suffered much in the hurtin' line I've always been as good as any man But show me who can lose in love and like it And I'll be the first to proudly shake his hand. Hollywood Squares. I've always said "I do" too easy And now I'm payin' the price My weakness for beautiful women Is my most expensive vice I still believe in matrimony But I can't afford another try Child support and alimony Is just about to bleed me dry.
I got ex's all across the country And I owe everybody in town I got bill collectors a callin' me up And lawyers tryin' to track me down I'm just one wrong move from the poor house But I don't belong in there I got so many ex's and owe so much I ought to be on Hollywood squares.
Lookin' back over my love life I only have myself to blame I guess I should've checked my price tag Before I gave 'em my last name Now my credit rating's in the gutter And the bottom line sure looks bad I'll be payin' the rest of my life For the few good times I've had.
What's going on in your world? I hope that you're doing fine. I just called to say there's not a day that you don't cross my mind. I just wanted to see if you feel like me - sorry that we said goodbye. So what's going on in your world?
It sure is lonesome in mine. Just tell me that you're happy and I'll hang up the phone. Just tell me you don't need me anymore and I'll leave you alone. I just wondered if you had somebody new after all of this time. Ace In The Hole. You've got to have an ace in the hole. A little secret that nobody knows. Life is a gamble, a game we all play, But you need to save something for a rainy day. You've got to learn to play your cards right if you expect to win in life.
Don't put it all on the line for just one roll. If you're headed down a one way street. And you're not sure it's the way you wanna go. In money or love, or all the above, Have a little more than what you show. When life deals out a surprise Have a few surprises of your own. No matter what you do, no matter where you go You've got to have an ace in the hole.
Don't put it all on the line for just one roll You've got to have an ace in the hole. Love Without End, Amen. I got sent home from school one day with a shiner on my eye.
Fightin' was against the rules and it didn't matter why. When dad got home I told that story just like I'd rehearsed. And then stood there on those tremblin' knees and waited for the worst. And he said, "Let me tell you a secret about a father's love, A secret that my daddy said was just between us. It's a love without end, amen, it's a love without end, amen. When I became a father in the spring of '81 There was no doubt that stubborn boy was just like my father's son. And when I thought my patience had been tested to the end, I took my daddy's secret and I passed it on to him.
Yet another new Rainbow lineup, this time featuring Joe Lynn Turner, who helped defined the band's 80's sound for the next three albums. Overall a decent CD, but not one of my favorites. The two instrumentals are a nice addition. SIDE A 1. Jealous Lover 2. Can't Happen Here 4. I Surrender The two b-side tracks are both taken from "Difficult to Cure". Rainbow - Straight Between the Eyes Polydor In high school I thought the album "Straight Between the Eyes" was cool, but I never could totally get into the overtlymelodic pop metal that Blackmore was pumping out.
It's not that it's a bad album, but in comparison to those darker, heavier Dio-years, it stands in stark comparison. However, " Stone Cold" the big hit from the album, is an excellent, melodic hard rock song with a big hook. Also, there is no denying that Blackmore is an outstanding guitarist. He lays down some choice leads throughout this record. However, for the most part "Straight Between the Eyes" doesn't hold a candle to the Dio -era. Rainbow - Bent out of Shape Polydor This album sounds just like the one before it.
I guess if I forget who this band is made up of, this is not such a bad disc. Rainbow - Finyl Vinyl Polydor It is basically a compilation of mostly live tracks with a few "new" studio tracks thrown in. Actually, two of the studio tracks are from the rare "Jealous Lover" EP with only "Bad Girl" being an exclusive track. The songs featured are from the various different Rainbow line-ups, all the way back to original vocalist Ronnie James Dio. Graham Bonnet and Joe Lynn Turner are both represented here as well.
As such, listening to this from beginning to end is a bit odd. The different eras of Rainbow were very different, making for an uneven record.
The original vinyl pressing had a gatefold cover with tons of photos of the various incarnations of Rainbow. This is the copy I own, as well as the vinyl version. There is now a remastered, 2-CD reissue with all the tracks. Rainbow - Stranger in Us All Fuel Ritchie was in and out of Deep Purple through the years. Apparently his ego is beyond that of even Yngwie Malmsteen 's which has caused some serious fights between him and Gillan.
In any case, at this point, Ritchie was out of Deep Purple and put out this solo disc with a bunch of unknown musicians. Bobby Grove - Jealous Dreams / Be Still actually like it better than any of the Joe Lynn Turner-era discs as it retains some of the gothic medieval ambiences of Rainbow's earlier material.
There is no need for a long drawn out review here. Rainbow in '77 were at the top of their game and this CD is a testament to that fact. Ritchie Blackmore was in charge, so there is plenty of those long, extended jams, as well as a very cool drum solo from Cozy Powell.
The only thing that is really missing from this set list is "Stargazer" which was left out in favor of new song "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll". I would have rather they removed any other song than "Stargazer"! Still, as it stands this is a fantastic live recording.
Back to Index. Ritchie Blackmore. Drummer Cozy Powell died in a car crash on April, 5, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow Polydor 1.
