REV JONES  "BAKWASH"   2018
"Bakwash"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

Every night we're workin hard,
Playin all the clubs and bars,
Sometimes we're paid with lots of twentys
other times we're paid with pennies,
Its like prostitution without fornication,
Just like Bakwash,

Playin old Van Halen tunes,
Zepplin, Kiss, and The Who,
Sabbath, Priest, and The Eagles,
Yes, King Crimson, and The Beatles,
We entertain you with the song
and if you know it sing along,

Sing with us Bakwash, Sing it loud Bakwash,

(drum solo)  (bass solo)  (gtr solo)

Well if theres a song you wanna hear,
Bring 3 cold Jagers 3 cold beers,
We play country blues jazz metal soul,
polka punk funk rock-n-roll,
Well we entertain you with the song
and if you know it sing along,

Sing with us Bakwash, Sing it loud Bakwash,
Bakwash, Sing it loud,
Just because we're Bakwash!


"Ring Of Pain"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

In the begining you were so different,
You came across just like a queen,
You seemed so perfect
thought I'd found my soulmate,
It seemed unreal just like a dream,
How we talked all night,
How we kissed all night,
Oh the way that you looked at me,
Oh the way you smiled & the way I smiled,
It felt like love to me,

Day in Day out. You never left my sight,
Round by round we wrestled
through the night,

That was then This is now,
And it will never be the same,
All is different now, Rules have changed,
My souvenir this Ring Of Pain,

I wish I'd never ever believed that,
It could be just you and me,
But you distracted my eyes
with your love and your lies,
It was you and your friends and then me,
Wish I knew back then,
what I know right now,
I would change my mistake,
Never would I fall for your sweet sweet lies,
I know your Love, Mean, Hate,

Now that we are, over, finished, done,
I wish you would, Give up, Leave me alone,

Theres no more then, Theres no more us,
And never will I let that change,
My pain and anger wont go away,
1 souvenir this Ring Of Pain, Ring Of Pain,
No more God Damn Ring Of Pain,

(gtr solo)

Now that you are out of my life
I'm happy Free,
And I will never let someone
take control of me,

That was then This is now,
I'll never quite do things the same,
I live life for me, Love, Hate, and Pain free,
And I destroyed your Ring Of Pain,
No more Ring Of Pain,
No more God Damn Ring Of Pain,


"New Drug"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

Let me tell you this tale the story of me,
Life I know of, No lies,
Its a twisted confusing reality,
With answers hidin in plain sight,
Its so real its surreal like Dalivision,
I'm melting with Time on a limb,
Apparatus hand, Tigers, Ants, Elephants,
Like a painting on a wall,

 <pre>
Lost and Confused, Here lies the truth,
Lost is the Truth, Lies are confused,
Lifes a riddle that puzzles your mind,
Theres some things you'll
probably never know,
The meaning of Life, Freedom, Control,

 <chorus>
Gimme a new drug that wont make me crazy,
And a woman that wont break my heart,
I need a break to take a long vacation,
To escape life for a while,

From the start of every single day,
its always the same,
Theres too many things happening all at once,
Hasn't changed and I'm drained,
I've been pushed to the edge,
Broken fool of hate, Not sure if I like the pain,
All I know is that I just cant take no more,
Scattered Brain no more Sane,

(pre) (chorus) (gtr solo) (bass solo) (chorus)


"Long Legged Lady"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

Down in Dallas Texas theres a
girl that I once knew,
She worked down in Deep Ellum
and her name was Barbara Sue,
She took me home and I must say
she turned my brain to mush,
She bit me like a rabid dog
she scratched my backside all up,

I wont forget that night,
For as long as I live,
I felt ridiculous speaking in tongues,
All because of that little,

Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Drove me out of my mind,
Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
I'm lucky I'm still alive,

Ever since that wondrous night
baby I have had the shakes,
Oh and if I see that girl again
oh this is what I'd say,
Listen to me Honey Bunch
I'm addicted to your stuff,
Oh no matter how much more
that you give me it just wont be enough,

You know I saw stars that night,
As I lost all control,
I felt like I was Loved and Raped
and everything between,
I think I met my queen,

Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Drove me out of my mind,
Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Well she made me dumb
she made me stupid,
I think that I just got shot by Cupid,

(bass solo) (gtr solo)

All the details I just cant forget,
Seems like it was only yesterday,
She had me beggin screamin cryin
speakin in tongues,
trdtrd uhguhyg olkjk kjhuj nhygt,

Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Drove me out of my mind,
Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
I'm lucky I'm still alive,
Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Drove me out of my mind,
Long Legged Big Brown Eyed Lady,
Well she made me dumb
she made me stupid,
I think that I just got shot by Cupid,


"Candy"
(Music by Rev Jones , Lyrics by Rev Jones & Wade Williams)

Its hot in the room,
With the baking Sweet perfume,
Scents spinning in my head,
Fall to my knees,
Wipe the sugar from your eye,
Now with strangers in the kitchen,

Come I, Come complete,
Come complete, uh oh oh,
I have come so far, I'm so clean,
And I want you to know,
I taste Candy in the Cane,

Like laughter from the beast,
That's fit for a king,
Can you bite the hand that feeds,
Never been afraid,
Wipe the sugar from your eye,
Now this danger is my queen,

And I, Come complete,
Come complete,  ouw,
Before I walk through this door,
Here is the answer you've been waiting for,
It's on the tip of my tongue,
I taste Candy in the Cane,
Is there Candy in the Cane,

(Solo)

I taste Candy in the Cane,
Candy Candy


"Bette Blue"
(Music by Rev Jones , Lyrics by Rev Jones & Kerry Staton)

I met a girl the other day,
Named Bette Blue,
She took my hand she sat me down,
She showed me what she do,

 <pre>
Every time she turned around
she looked me in the eyes,
Every time she turned away
she winked without her eye, I was surprised,

 <chorus>
Bette blew my mind, Bette blew my mind,
Bette Blue is so fine, Bette blew my mind,

Oh Bette Blue she got the moves,
I must say,
And when she moved oh Bette blew
everyone away,

(pre) (chorus) (bass solo) (gtr solo) (pre)

Bette blew my mind, Bette blew my mind,
Bette Blue is so fine, Bette blew my mind,
Bette Blue,


"Mr Paulie Ester"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

Yellow Blue and Red suspenders,
Holding up my britches,
Pink and Green argyle socks
and Beatle Boots,
Groovy shades that hide my eyes,
my hair slicked back with Breel Cream,
A bright Orange bowtie
and a Silver turtleneck,

When I walk down the street,
All the ladies stop and stare at me,
I always wear the grooviest Slax
made of Polyester,

When I walk into a club
with my John Travolta Strut,
Snappin my fingers
and chewing bubble gum,
I stroll right out on the dance floor,
and start tearing it up,
I know I'm the best because
all the rest  always Stop and stare,

I should be on the cover
of every womans magazine,
Hiding my package in my
tight plaid Polyester,

(gtr solo) (bass solo)

The tag on my Gremlin reads,
S.T.U.D. 1,
To let the ladies know
who to follow home,

They should make a movie.
about me, starring me, playing me,
on the silver screen, Gods Gift To Women,
Its me, My name is Paulie Ester


"One Track Mind (3 blind eyes)"
(Music by Rev Jones , Lyrics by Rev Jones & Greg Scott)

Lost cause with a smiling soul,
Theres nothing sacred to me anymore,
Its you and me and now its much too late,
About to walk all over your own grave,

Born again with bad intent,
Out of line with Heavens trip,
Dark horse with a jaded heart,
Just think twice before you count me out,

 <pre>
I know you know just
what I have in mind,
Take away the pain and
leave the rest behind,
1 more question 1 more answer
1 more lie,
Its just so fucking hard
to see with 3 blind eyes,

 <chorus>
One more reason, One more try,
Rolling numbers, One Track Mind,
It aint easy, It aint blind,
Choose your weapon, One Track Mind,

Lost cause with a smiling soul,
Theres nothing sacred to me anymore,
Its you and me and now its much too late,
About to walk all over your own grave,

(pre) (chorus) (bass solo) (gtr solo) (chorus)

No No No No!!!


"Songbird"
(Music & Lyrics by Rev Jones)

Friday Night turned into Sunday,
Here in my rehearsal room,
50 straight hours on a writing frenzy,
Talking to the moon,
Song after song they just keep on coming,
Its gettin real tough keepin up with them,
I wanna stop but my mind wont let me,
I think its second wind time again,

That shot of ZipFizz took away my pain,
It feels like I started all over again,
Wide awake
the music plays through my brain,
I hope it last at least just 1 more day,

 <chorus>
Songbird, That wont stop,
Singin, inside my head,
Unheard, melodies,
Ringing, they'll never end,

Monday afternoon & I'm almost finished,
I just gotta touch up 1 more tune,
I hope I dont get no new ideas,
Could I, dont think I should,
I'm startin to feel just like a zombie,
My head feels like its full of mush,
My back's jacked up & my eyes are hurtin,
I think too much, I've had enough,

I think I'll line up just 1 more shot,
I wonder will it help me or not, Cause
I dont wanna leave any song unsung,
Tuesday morning and I'm almost done,

(chorus) (gtr solo) (bass solo) (break)

And now that all my songs are complete,
Lyin in bed tryin to fall asleep,
But in my head the music still plays,
I wish that bird would just fly away,

(chorus)
