You Ain’t Unlucky ©2021

Lyrics and Music Written by Veronica Lewis

 

Life lifts you up, sometimes it puts you down

Think you got a plan, then it spins you all around

Might not feel good, but that don’t it’s bad

Yeah I know it’s raining, but why you gotta be so sad.

Let me tell ya

It’s  just another one of those things

 

Some people – it’s all the same

Take they credit, can’t take the blame

Like one bad apple don’t spoil the bunch

One bad day shouldn’t really mean that much

Yeah don’t worry

It’s just another one of those things

 

 No, No you ain’t unlucky, just gotta change the way you see

Think it’s bad every cherry has a pit

honey, inside every pit is a whole other tree

Let me tell ya

It’s one of those things

 

 

Well, you give everything you got, every single little last drop

Try to build bridges everywhere you go

Sometimes you feel you ain’t got nothing left to show

Let me tell ya

It’s just another one of those things

 

Life lifts you up, sometimes if puts you down

Think you got a plan, then it spins you all around

Might not feel good, but that don’t it’s bad

Yeah I know it’s raining, but why gotta be so sad.

Let me tell ya

It’s probably just another one of those things

Yeah let me tell ya

It’s probably another one of those things

Clarksdale Sun ©2019

Lyrics and Music written by Veronica Lewis

 

Well I rolled up, jumped out, and the heat knocked me down

Yeah, I rolled up, jumped out, and the heat knocked me down

 It's an angry kind of hot, and this here sun gonna do me in

           

I showed up on your back porch, and you run me off

 Well I showed up on your back porch, you done run me off

You're an angry kind of woman, and I ain't got no time to mess

You're an angry kind of woman and I ain't  got no time to mess           

 

We headin’ on down to Hopson,

Sun can’t shine no more

Well we headin’ on down to Hopson,

Sun can’t shine no more

Gonna beat down that angry sun,

With a Boogie Woogie bass and drum 

 

Abraham, the man, he said, he said, we hittin’ it hard tonight

Well Abe done said, yes he did, we hittin’ hard tonight

Gonna beat down that angry sun,

With a Boogie Woogie bass and drum

 

Well, we  takin’ down to Zero, writins’  on the wall

Yes we takin’ it down to Zero,  writins’  on the wall

We gonna beat down that angry sun,

With a Boogie Woogie bass and drum

 

We gonna beat down that angry sun,

With a Boogie Woogie bass and drum.

Memphis Train©2019

Words and Music by Veronica Lewis

 

Well I heard the train when I was just a child

It called my name and said to ride a while

 

I felt a thundering pound that got deep inside

And I knew I couldn’t let the train pass me by

 

Yeah I know I’m going to ride the 6:01

So c’mon everyone let’s have some fun

 

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

I heard the whistle calling my name

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

Have you heard that whistle calling your name?

 

I know I’ma going to ride the 6:01 in style

So c’mon everyone let’s ride awhile

 

 

When I got on board I knew what to do

I saw Pinetop, Jerry Lee and Katie too

Yeah I know I’m going to ride the 6:01

So c’mon everyone let’s have some fun

 

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

I heard the whistle calling my name

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

Have you heard that whistle calling your name?

 

The Memphis train barrels down the line

With a Boogie Woogie rhythm and 8 beat time

 

Going full tilt with a head of steam

Clicketey – Clack gonna chase my dream

 

Yeah I know I’m going to ride the 6:01

So c’mon everyone let’s have some fun

 

 

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

I heard the whistle calling my name

Memphis Train, Memphis Train

So c’mon everyone let’s ride awhile

Put Your Wig On Mama ©2019

(Dedicated to my own Mama)

Lyrics and Music written by Veronica Lewis

 

Put your wig on Mama, you ain’t frying no chicken tonight                                       

Put your wig on Mama, you ain’t frying no chicken tonight

So forget what you are cooking cause you're going out that right.

 

Well I’m putting on my wig and throwing the pots away

Well I’m putting on my wig and throwing the pots away

Well Mama’s going out and Mama’s there to stay. 

 

I got my wig on Daddy and you're the one cooking tonight,

Got my wig on Daddy and you're the one cooking tonight.

So you better getting to cooking Daddy, cause I'm going out that's right. 

 

Well you better get to cooking Daddy before the pots get cold

Because Mama’s not doing anything ...anything she's told.

So get that biggie wig of your head Daddy cause your going out that’s right.

 

Got my wig on Daddy I ain't frying no chicken tonight.

Got my wig on Daddy I ain't frying no chicken tonight.

So you better getting to cooking Daddy, cause I’m going out that's right.

Fool Me Twice ©2020

Lyrics and music by Veronica Lewis

 

Well you’re tripping and lying and playin’ me again

Yeah you’re tripping and lying and playin’ me again

Well fool me once shame on you

Fool me twice that's a shame on me

 

Well you’re singin’ me a sad song but I ain’t hearing it no more

Well you’re singin’ me a sad song but I ain’t hearing it no more

Yeah maybe one of these days

What comes out I ain’t already heard

 

Well I done spending good time on a bad time anymore

I’m done spending good time on a bad time anymore

Yeah maybe one of these days

What comes out I ain’t already heard

 

Well I’m tired of your double crossing and livin’ this way

Lord I’m tired of your double crossing and livin’ this way

Well fool me once shame on you

Fool me twice that's a shame on me

 

Well you’re trippin’ and lyin’ and playin’ me again

Yeah you’re trippin’ and lyin’ and playin’ me again

Well fool me once shame on you

Fool me twice that's a shame on me
