Lyrically peaking: Black and Blue

Memory Motel

Hannah honey was a peachy kind of girl

Her eyes were hazel

And her nose were slightly curved


What’s all this laughter on the 22nd floor

It’s just some friends of mine

And they’re busting down the door

Fool To Cry

When I come home baby

And I’ve been working all night long

I put my daughter on my knee, and she say

“Daddy what’s wrong?”

I put my head on her shoulder

She whispers in my ear so sweet

You know what she says?

“Daddy you’re a fool to cry

You’re a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why”

Crazy Mama

Well you’re crazy Mama

With your ball and chain

And your sawn off shotgun

Blown out brains, yeah


Cause if you really think you can push it

I’m going to bust your knees with a bullet


Came home one morning about quarter to three

I’m banging on my door cause

I just lost my key

Open up, baby, you got someone else inside

I’m going to come get you, dead or alive
