01. Comin' Home

Music & lyrics by Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale, Ian Paice
My mama showed me how to rock in the cradle
But I learned how to roll along
My papa said 'son, gotta git some fun,
Cos when your old it ain't too good on your own'
Been so long since you heard my song
Gonna pick up my guitar and play
Felt so bad when I had to leave you
But I knew that I'd be back some day

So I'm comin' home
To give you more than you bargained for
Comin' home
No mistake I'm gonna shiver 'n' shake
Comin' home
Gonna rock 'n' roll an' give you my soul
Comin' home
I got over the pain I'm comin' home again

Groovin to american bandstand
B.b. onstage with 'lucille'
The thrill is gone but it won't be for long
Cos you know I like to play how you feel
Now that we're back together
Gonna shiver 'n' shake all night
I just gotta say the music I play
Will sure enough make you feel alright

Tho I learned how to rock in the cradle
An' rollin' came so easy to me
All the years I travelled the world
Made it so clear to see
It's been so long since you heard my song
Gonna pick up my guitar 'n' play
Felt so bad when I had to leave you
But I knew that I'd be back some day

Comin' home
To give you more than you baragained for
Comin' home
No mistake I'm gonna shiver and shake
Comin' home
Gonna rock 'n' roll and give you my soul
Comin' home
I got over the pain I'm comin' home again
Comin' home
Shiver 'n' shakin' anticpatin'
Comin' home
The thrill is gone but it won't be for long


02. Lady Luck

Music by Bolin, Coverdale
Lyrics by Jeff Cook, Coverdale
She was a jukebox dancer
A blue eyed gypsy queen
She always had an answer
For what she'd done
And where she'd been
A feathercane Lady Midnight
For all around to see
She spoke with words of wisdom
And this is what she said to me

Lady luck
C'mon give me what I want
Pull me up
Lady luck
If I see you again
I will call you my friend

I have always been a sinner
But then the lady came along
She stole my heart and turned me 'round
'Till I didn't know right from wrong
She whispered words of kindness
I'd never ever heard before
Golden words and silver tongue
Till I really couldn't take no more

Lady luck
C'mon give me what I want
Pull me up
Lady luck
If I see you again
I will call you my friend
C'mon shake me


03. Gettin' Tighter

Music & lyrics by Bolin, Glenn Hughes
When night time comes
And I'm ten thousand miles away
Just lose yourself
And watch the band kick back and play

Get up - keep in line
It's gettin' tighter all the time
You say you're feelin' fine
It's gettin' tighter all the time

Get a load off your mind
This place is right
It's hard to find
The mood is set alright
It's gonna be a long long night
You keep spinnin' 'round
You find it hard to touch the ground
And time is all it takes
You'll find it easy once you make

Get up - keep in line
It's gettin' tighter all the time
Gettin' tighter
Gettin' tighter


04. Dealer

Music & lyrics by Bolin, Coverdale
If you fool around
With the dealer
Remember soon
You'll have to pay
He'll creep behind you
Like a hunter
Just to steal your soul away
I don't want no one
Messing with my woman
But just the same
I don't see nobody
Fooling with you
If you're snowblind
Madonna can hold you
But if you don't understand
There is nothing she can do for you

Running from the dealer
Trying to save your soul

I can feel the fire
Coming from inside you
I know what it's like
Cos I've been burned before
Ain't no mercy
In the hunger but
You're a fool to yourself
Cos your dealer keeps you begging for more

Running from the dealer
Trying to save your soul

In the beginning all you wanted
Was the calm before the storm
If the bluebird plays the eagle
He finds his song will turn to stone
Dealer...


05. I Need Love

Music & lyrics by Bolin, Coverdale
I keep singing the same old song
Like I did before
When you left me
You left me in darkness
I'd never known before
I was restless
A fool for your time
Waiting 'round for you to call
But now I've found me
An angel of mercy
I don't feel bad at all

Your body was honey
I tasted a lot
But let me tell you babe
I need more than you got
I want someone to hold me
An' keep me satisfied
I need love

I've got nothing to do
Ain't got nothing to say
Just live your life
The way you know
When you moved on
You took all the sweetness
Was I a fool to let you go
With the woman I forget for the moment
All the times we knew before
Tho I'm still singing
The same old love song
I don't want you knocking on my door


06. Drifter

Music & lyrics by Bolin, Coverdale
I was born a rambling man
An' I never got the chance
To settle down an' get a hold on love
Takin' air an' movin' around
Is all I can see that I'm doin'
An' it is bringin' me down
Drivin' on a highway going nowhere
Desolation destination
Guess I'll find it somewhere
I know if there's trouble
I ain't takin' the blame
That's why I keep movin'
So nobody knows my name

Born a loser
I'm beyond the law
Women behind me
Never can find me
They can never get together
What I've been here for
Cos I'm a drifter

Rollin' on
Ain't wastin' my time no more


07. Love Child

Music & lyrics by Bolin, Coverdale
You can walk thro' fire,
Make the north wind blow
Squeeze 'n' tease me honey
When you shake your body
You move my soul...
Let me be your lover
Won't you let me be your child
Take me through your universe
Y'know that when you smile
You drive me wild...

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Always teasin' me

You can ride your pony
Day dream in Fairy Tales
All I know, is I need more,
When I see you dance the seven veils...


08. This Time Around / Owed To 'G' (Instrumental)

Music by Hughes, Jon Lord, Tommy Bolin
Lyrics by Hughes, Jon Lord
The world around us hangs in doubt
You face a crime that we'll hear about
To pay the cost would never be the same
Eternal lovers we're not to blame
There's no mistake there's no refrain
The same surroundings that stood
Are here again - this time...

As I look around you can't be found
To lose you I'd rather see
The endless time of space go passing by
This time around...
This time around...
So look around we all will be found
In love...

The world around us hangs in doubt
You face a crime that we'll hear about
To pay the cost would never be the same
Eternal lover you're not to blame
There's no mistake there's no refrain
The same surroundings that stood
Are here again - this time...

As I look around you can't be found,
To lose you, I'd rather see
The endless time of space go passing by
This time around...
This time around...
To lose you I'd rather see
The endless time of space go passing by
Fly...
By...


09. You Keep On Moving

Music & lyrics by Coverdale, Hughes
You keep on moving
Far away, far away
You keep on moving
Far away, far away
Everyday, wheels are turning
And the cry... still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking,
The day has just begun.
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun.
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread...
