    Shattered Dreams
    Shattered dreams of day gone by

    Makes me want to sit right down and cry

    All the plans I had, and what I turned to

    Just shattered dreams

     

    Yesterday was long ago

    When I first met you, you were my dream

    All in vein, and it only brought me pain

    Shattered dreams

     

    Your goodbye shattered it all

    For early this morning news brought me a call

    Now all I have is gone, and all that’s left

    Is my shattered dreams

     

    Shattered dreams, shattered dreams baby

    Shattered dreams, shattered dreams shattered dreams

     

    Shattered dreams, my shattered dreams

    Yeah, yeah

    Early in the Morning

    “Hey Padro where are we goin’?”

    “I don’t know”

    “Turn on that flashlight”

     

    Early in the morning and i can't get right

    'cause i had a little date with my baby last night


    Now it's early in the mornin’

    In the mornin’

    Early in the mornin’

    And i ain't got nothin' but the blues


    I went to all the places where we used to go

    I went to her house but she don't live there no more


    Now it's early in the mornin’

    Early in the mornin’

    In the mornin’

    And I ain't got nothin' but the blues



    I went to his best friend’s house, but she was out

    I knocked on his mother’s door and she began to shout

    "scat ally cat!"

    In the mornin’


    It's early in the mornin’

    It's early in the mornin’

    And i ain't got nothin' but the blues


    Went to doughy chase to get something to eat

    The waitress looked at me, she said, "ma, you sure look beat"

    It's early in the morning, baby

    Early in the mornin’

    It's early in the mornin’

    And i ain't got nothin' but the blues



    I had a lot of money when i first started out

    I couldn't find my baby, now my money's run out


    Now it's early in the mornin’

    In the mornin’

    Ya it's early in the mornin’

    And i ain't got nothin' but the blues


    Early in the mornin’
     
    And I ain't got nothin' but the blues

    Romance in the Dark

    In the dark it’s just you and I

    There’s not a sound and there’s not one sigh

    Just the beat of my poor heart

    In the dark

     

    Now, in the dark I get such a thrill

    Well, well, when he puts his fingertips upon my lips

    And he begs me “Please, please be still

    In the dark”

     

    But soon this dance will be ending

    And you’re gonna find, you’re gonna be missed

    Gee, but I’m not pretending, no

    ‘Cause I swear, I swear it’s fun, It’s fun, it’s fun to be kissed

    In the dark

     

    Now we will find

    What the rest, what the rest have left behind

    Just let them dance, ‘cause we will find romance

    In the dark

    Down So Low

    When you went away I cried for so long
    And I wanted you to stay
    Ah but that was all wrong

    The pain you left behind
    Has become, has become a part of me
    And it's burned out a hole
    Where my love used to be

    But it's not losing you
    That's got me down so low
    I just can't find another man
    To take your place

    Well you know I love you
    But that wasn't enough
    We both fell apart
    When the goin’ got real rough
    And I've learned how to give now, I learned how
    But what good, what good will do
    ‘cause no one can touch me
    Like you used to do

    And it's not losing you
    That's got me down so low
    I just can't find another man
    To take your place

    And I know your opinion
    Of me Isn’t good
    Please try and understand
    That I'd change, I’d change if I could
    And this coldness inside is starting, is starting to build

    And a woman can't be a woman
    Until she's fulfilled

    But it's not losing you
    that's got me down so low
    I just can't, I just can’t find another man
    To take your place
    And no one can

    You may high half me all the time, you may never go my way

     But mother earth is laying for you ‘cause there’s a debt you’ve got to pay

    Don’t care how great you are, I don’t care what your worth

    When it all comes down you got to go back to mother earth

     

    You may own half the city, diamonds and pearls

    You may buy an airplane baby, and fly all over this world

    I don’t care how great you are, I don’t care what your worth

    When it all comes up you got to go back to mother earth

     

    You may play the race horses, you may own a race track

    You may have enough money baby to buy anything you like

     Don’t care how great you are, I don’t care what your worth

    When it all goes up you got to go back to mother earth

     

    You may play the race horses, you may own your own track

    Crossroads

    I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
    I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
    Asked the Lord above, have mercy on poor me if you please.

    Standin' at the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
    I went down to the crossroad, tried to flag a ride
    Didn't nobody seem to know me, but everybody pass me by

    Standin' at the crossroads baby, risin' sun goin' down
    I’m standin' at the crossroads baby, see the risin' sun goin' down
    I believe my soul now, poor me is sinkin' down

    You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
    You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
    That I got the crossroad blues this mornin',
    Lord, baby I'm sinkin' down

    You can run you can run, just tell my friend Wily Brown

    Ya You can run you can run, just tell my friend Wily Brown

    That I got the crossroad boots this mornin’ baby

    And I’m slowly sinkin’ down, down down down

    I went to the crossroad, babe, I looked east and west
    I went to the crossroad, babe, I looked east I looked west
    Lord, I didn't have no sweet man, to hold me in my distress
