Curtis - Live!



  

WE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE DARKER THAN BLUE

We people who are darker than blue
are we gonna stand around this town and let what others say come true
We're just good for nothing they all figure
a boyish grown up shiftless jigger
Now we can't hardly stand for that
or is that really where it's at
We people who are darker than blue
this ain't no time for segregatin'
I'm talking 'bout brown and yellow two
High yellow girl can't you tell
you're just the surface of our dark deep well
If your mind could really see
you'd know your color the same as me
Pardon me brother as you stand in your glory
I know you won't mind if I tell the whole story
Get yourself together learn to know your side
Now I know we have great respect
for the sister and mother it's even better yet
But there's the joker in the street loving one brother and killing the other
when the time comes and we are really free
there'll be no brothers left you see
We people who are darker than blue
don't let us hang around this town
and let what others say come true
We're just good for nothing they all figure
a grown up jigger
Now we can't hardly stand for that
or is that really where it's at
Pardon me brother as you stand in your glory
I know you won't mind if I tell the whole story
Pardon me brother I know we've come a long long way
let us stop being so satisfied
for tomorrow for tomorrow can be an an even brighter day


GYPSY WOMAN

From nowhere through a caravan around the camp fire light
a lovely woman in motion with hair as dark as night
Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark that hypnotized me with love
She was a gypsy woman, she was a gypsy woman
She danced around and round to a guitar melody
from the fire her face was all a glow
How she enchanted me
Oh how I'd like to hold her near and kiss and forever whisper in her ear
I love you gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman
All thru the caravan she was dancing with all the men
waiting for the rising sun everyone was having fun
I hate to see the lady go knowing she'll never know
that I love her let me tell you I love her
The gypsy woman, she was a gipsy woman,
she was a gipsy woman, a gypsy woman
Before I knew the night was through and I was all alone
the charms of the gypsy woman and her caravan was gone
All was left with burnin' ..
 of a love that made me my heart surrender to a gypsy woman
she was a gipsy woman  she was a gipsy woman 
she was a gipsy woman


THE MAKINGS OF YOU

Add a little sugar honey suckle
and a great big expression of happiness
Boy you couldn't miss
with a dozen roses
such will astound you the joy of children 
laughing around you
These are the makings of you
It is true the makings of you
The righteous way to go
little one would know
or believe if I told them so
You're second to none
the love of all mankind
should reflect some sign of these words
I've tried to recite
they're close but not quite
Almost impossible to do
describing the makings of you
The righteous way to go
little one would know
or believe if I told them so
You're second to none
the love of all mankind
should reflect some sign of these words
I've tried to recite
they're close but not quite
Almost impossible to do
receiving the makings of you
