Crossroads (James/Ripley/Ripley)


Standing at the crossroads with my heart right in my hand
Standing at the crossroads with my heart right in my hand
My true lovin' baby has gone and found herself another man
Standing here crying, look at the tears rollin' down my face
Standing out on the highway crying, look at the tears rollin' down my face
My true lovin' baby has gone and found another man and has got him in my place




Matt's Thoughts on the Matter (Matt Minlgewood)


Well there I was out on the highway with my heart right in my hand. All because that little woman of mine found herself with another man. Oh, I was out there on the highway with the rain coming down, the tears rollin' down my face, and she was back there with some other guy in my place. You know back in my apartment, that I paid good money, for with some other guy.

I thought about this particular situation and I had me a revelation. I said F#*# this shit and I walked across the highway and I hitchhiked right back into town. I mean I walked up the steps of my own apartment, where I use to live, and there they were right on my own living room floor, right on that brand new shag carpet, with sponge underlay. That was just put down last week, cost me $752.25 dollars plus tax and I don't have to tell you what they were doing.

John, what were they doing? They were screwing, I knew that as soon as I seen it. I'd seen it before and at that moment, I remember the words of my good buddies – Gary and Blair McLean of McLean and McLean. I walked over there and I kicked him right in the BALLS, and he went down the stairs CRYING. Now, I'm not into hitting women or anything, I don't believe in that sort of stuff, but I thought she deserved a little pat on the BUTT, so I gave her one. She went down the stairs CRYING.

As they were going down the road wrapped in nothing but an old blanket they found at the bottom of the steps that my dog, Snortin' Norton, sleeps on. I opened up the window and said " Hey darlin, there's one more thing I got to say, I'm not quite finished yet. You know the way you've been running round, running round every time I turn my back, laying some other man down." She said " Ya". Well we're going to change all that, you see darlin', I'm going to take all my money out of the bank, I'm going to gas up my 1965 Cadillac, Coup De Ville, with one missing fender skirt, call all my good time rowdy buddies and tell them to get the parties going because Matt Minglewood is going on a roll.

That's just what they did until 3 or 4 days in a row now. I've been running around, toking, drinking just partying down. She's been calling up all the time asking, "Where's Matt! Let me talk to him" I said, "No, I don't want to talk to that bitch". About the fourth day, I said, "Give me the phone". She wants to know what I'm doing. Darlin' you want to know what I'm doing. I'm going to tell you right now, what I'm doing. Let me put it to you this way.




Four O'Clock in the Morning (James/Ripley/Ripley)


CHORUS
Four o'clock in the morning
Three nights in a row
The way that I'm feeling
Don't feel one bit low
Got my motor running
Two more places left I got to go
Four o'clock in the morning
Three nights in a row

REPEAT CHORUS

Four o'clock in the morning
Three nights in a row
