JUST THE MAN
I’m not a good man I’m not a bad man I’m nor a nice man Neither an ugly man.
I’m just the man you were looking for
I’m not a strong man I’m not a weak man I’m not a young man But still an active man.
I’m just the man you were looking for
I’m not a big man I’m not a small man I’m not a rich man I’m not a poor man
I’m just the man you were looking for But you think I’m not for you
And I think you’re not for me.

OLD BLACK TRAIN
This old black train is running on my mind
Its old black smoke is making me blind
This old black train is whistling in my head
I think it gonna whistle till I’m dead
This old black train is running on my mind
Its old black smoke is making me blind
Stop that train stop it and turn around
I don’t want to stop listening its lonesome sound

INDIAN TRAILS BLUES
I gonna tell you a story
About Clarksdale Mississippi
There’s a crossroad in the city
But before it was built
There were two Indian trails
Crossing
And the Indian spirit
Still floods the blues
It’s the Indian trails
Blues

I’M A BLUES VET
Paroles de Cisco Herzhaft
The first time I heard a real blues
It was in 1963
I never listened to the British Rockers Iʼm a blues Vet
The first time I saw a real Bluesman It was in 1965
The first time I recorded a blues
It was in 1969
Iʼm a blues vet
The first time I played with a real Bluesman It was in 1969 too
Iʼm a blues Vet….

TRAVELIN’ MAN
I’m a travellin’ man, I travelled all my life (bis) With a bag, my guitar, and my swiss army’s knife.
I travel with my car, sometimes taking a plane, Waiting for a bus, or even taking a train.
Even if I know some trains got bad destinations.
I’m a travellin’ man, I travelled here and there,
But I always wished to stay with my guitar somewhere.
Hitch hiking, or walking, even under the rain,
As a young man, I tried to jump on a freight train.
Even if I know some trains got bad destinations

CISCO KID
The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine
The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine
He drink whiskey, Poncho drink the wine
He drink whiskey, Poncho drink the wine
We met down on the fort of Rio Grande
We met down on the fort of Rio Grande
Eat the salted peanuts out of can
Eat the salted peanuts out the can
The outlaws had us pinned down at the fort
The outlaws had us pinned down at the fort
Cisco came in blastin’, drinkin’ port
Cisco came in blastin’, drinkin’ port
They rode the sunset, horse was made of steel
They rode the sunset, horse was made of steel
Chased a gringo last night through a field
Chased a gringo last night through a field
The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine
The Cisco Kid he was a friend of mine
The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine
The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine

THAT’S MY NAME
I was born in Mississippi, one hundred and twenty years ago (bis) In a plantation, Dockery farm, it’s all what I know.
My father was a black man, probably a poor cotton picker (bis) Quite surely, I had a Cherokee as a grandmother.
A lot of times, I walk on strings, and I dance on English words. My sounds are like trains running, or peaceful singing birds.
I got a lot of children, rock and roll and rhythm and blues, You know what my name is, they call me the Blues.

POOR BOY
I’m a poor boy, I’m a long way from homeI’m a poor boy, I’m a long way from homeWhat the others do, the world can’t do me no harmI’m a poor boy, a long way from homeBabe I can’t stay here long, babe I can’t stay here longWhat the others do, the world can’t do me no harmI’m a poor boy, I’m a long way from homeWell my, baby’s dead and goneWell my, baby’s dead and goneWell, well, well, well I’m a long way from homeI’m a poor boy, I’m a long way from homeAnd the world, can’t do me no harmAnd the world, can’t do me no harmOh , no no no no, I’m a long way from homeWorld can’t do me no harmWorld can’t do me no harmWorld can’t do me no harm

A CRAZY WOMAN
I got me a crazy woman, she was crazy all the time She said she loves me, hates me, in the same time.
Sometimes she was close to me, she brutally kissed me. Another time she came to me, to brutally hit me.
What kind of woman she was, I can’t really say But I did what I had to, it’s to go away.
I got me a crazy woman, she was crazy all the time She said she loves me, hates me, in the same time.

SON OF A WATCHMAKER
My father was a watchmaker I grew with clocks all around And every quarter hour
I could hear their sound
The wooden clocks with their chime The cuckoo clocks with their song In my head I get the time
That walks with my life all along
All my life I could measure How the time was passing That’s the reason why I’m sure I’m now in its evening.
The time I earned is surely better Than the time I spent
But you know, now and forever I’ll enjoy every moment
