krazyken It's been a while since I bought this album, I've listened to it many times, and it is one of those rare pieces of blues artistry that really gets your foot tapping. I just love it, Drive should be played Loud with the windows down and the wind in your hair. Gets My vote!! Favorite track: Drive (Mescalito Mix).

MY BABY TONIGHT? WHEN IT TURNED INTO THE COOL OF NOVEMBER I KIND OF KNEW I’D NEVER SEE HER AGAIN IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT I SWEAR I HEARD HER CALLING OUT MY NAME TODAY I HEARD THEY'D FOUND HER CHEVY BURIED HALFWAY DOWN IN THAT TAHOE MUD IT WAS EMPTY INSIDE LIKE MY BABY’S EYES SHE TOOK TO DISAPPEAR OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT I WANNA KNOW WHERE BABY DON’T GO I WANNA KNOW I WANNA KNOW WHERE BABY DON’T GO WHERE GOES MY BABY? MY BABY TONIGHT? AND I’VE BEEN DRIVING THROUGH THESE STREETS IN THE MOONLIGHT TRYING TO FIND A REASON WHY IT'LL TAKE A FOOL LIKE ME NOT TO REALISE, REALISE… I NEED MY BABY TONIGHT… © 2014 Wily Bo Walker.

WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL? OH ANGEL, I’VE HEARD SO MANY LIES BUT WITH WARS TO THE EAST CORRUPTION TO THE WEST HOW THE HELL WE EVER GONNA SURVIVE? OH ANGEL, MY SWEET ANGEL WHEN THEY LIGHT THOSE FIRES THEY’RE GOING TO BURN LIKE FOREVER BUT WE’RE NEVER GOING TO SEE THE LIGHT AND WHO’LL BE THERE TO CATCH OUR DREAMS AS THEY FALL WHO’LL BE THERE FOR THE CHILDREN WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL? COS TIME IS SLIPPING THROUGH OUR FINGERS LIKE A STORM IN THE DESERT SAND WHO CAN PLACE OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE IN THE PALM OF SOME FOOLS HAND? IF ONLY I COULD GET SOME ANSWERS I WOULD LET THEM ALL IN ON THE PLAN SO WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL THEY CAN UNDERSTAND… SO THEY CAN UNDERSTAND… © 2015 Wily Bo Walker. All Rights Reserved
