Out the door I couldn’t take it no longer I wanted love, she just gave me the blues And now I start to stagger the streets just dragging my boots, yeah I can’t sleep at night I’m so restless I ask the radio to tell me the news How long must I travel these hard time walking blues Hard time Hard time Walking Blues I’m so broke down I can’t get any lower I walk the streets with these holes in my shoes What's left for you to take, when I got nothing to loose Oh well well well So I kick and scream and I holler I walk a path no sane man would choose And I don’t see an end to these hard time walking blues Hard time Hard time Walking Blues Hard time Hard time Walking Blues

I've been driving all night baby Just to get to you my lady It's a long way to you but I'll Drive all night for Peggy Sue Going down the road less traveled This womans' got me rattled It's a long way to you but I'll Drive all night for Peggy Sue Such a long way to you but I'll Drive all night for Peggy Sue

He had a mean six shooter short temper like you’ve never known Rebel gang member vendetta sent to take you out Secondhand dead man dagger cut to the bone Old black chopper hot rodder with the hammer down Like a Bat Outta Hell Herbicide black helicopter come to cut you down Midnight strangers teenagers do your country proud Vietnam god dam solders tunnel underground One eye open cut throatin’ creepers on the prowl Like a Bat Outta Hell Bona fide killer state prisoner locked n’ shackle bound Death row sinner lock picker moves without a sound Mud map heart attack storm the penitentiary walls Blood hound boarder town tracker sent to track you down Like a Bat Outta Hell

I heard it's true He tore your heart out baby blue So cruel and callus, you had no doubt He was the one and now you're left without With no one to hold you late at night And you can't stop from crying I feel your pain Same thing happened to me just the other day She left me cold in the heat of the night I searched far and wide to keep the flame alight Found her in the arms of another man My heart burst out my chest Oh and oh no, I can go on anymore I can't stop from crying I can't stop from crying I can't stop from crying I can't stop from crying

Oh by the light of the moon I slept for a thousand years And not a moment too soon My heart began to beat And blood started to run My eyes welled up with tears I'm blinded by the sun And struck down by burning flames Night into day Now I'll never be the same Night into day And now I'll never be the same With one hand One hand on my heart She put a stop to this yearning pain And I was over come And now I will never be the same Night into day Now I'll never be the same Night into day And now I'll never be the same

Heavy load Tryin' to bring me down Like the devil With her pure evil Baby god damn I'm a slave to you Digging my resting place Six feet deep in dirt If we don't break these chains That'd be all I'm worth Baby god damn I'm a slave to you Baby god damn I'm a slave to you

Breaking my back For five days a week And I was, treated like a slave Till five o'clock sets me free That's when I go rollin' Run on gasoline I go rollin' in my... That girl Yeah she's so mean When she, drives me crazy I just Turn that key And go rollin' Run on gasoline I go rollin' Oh yeah in my Sixty Three Rollin' Run on gasoline I go rollin' Oh yeah in my Sixty Three With the windows down Rubber to the ground All night long To that straight eight sound

about

The Blackwater Fever Brisbane, Australia

The Blackwater Fever return with a mighty fourth album, ‘Delusions’.

Taking their dark, distinctive sound and injecting it with ’90s grunge, ’50s slow dance, moments of prog rock, punk, soul and an ’80s New Order-inspired track, ‘Delusions’ sees the Brisbane trio sounding more adventurous, eclectic and surprisingly succinct than ever before. ... more
