Ahhhhhh Yeaahhh

 

Oh lady when ya come on down

Won’t ya come on down

I said to my town

 

Oh mama when ya come on down

Won’t ya come on down

I said to my home

 

Oo lady won’t you move my way

Can’t ya move my way

I’m getting hazy

 

Oh mama when you give your lovin’

When you give your love

You drive me crazy

 

Ah mama what you gonna do

With all that love in your heart

Ah mama what you gotta say

About that love in your heart

Ah mama when you walk this way

Why don’t you give some lovin’

Oh Mama what you gonna do

With all that lovin’ in your heart

See mama gotta feel your everything

Feel your everything

See mama when you shine your shinin’ bright

Give your given right

See mama when your heart is in it’s place

See that smilin’ face it’s all I wanna really do

See mama every time that you are near

It’s when you’re gonna fear

You’re never gonna come back home

 

Ah mama what you gonna do

Oh mama what you gotta say

About that love in your heart

Ah mama when you walk this way

Do you remember what I said

When I got down on my knees

Gotta get your lovin’ baby

Lovins’ all I need

Don’t make me beg now baby

I gave you all a man could give

And you still walked out on me

2.  Edge of Darkness

(written by Greta Van Fleet • published by Yankee Springs Publishing/BMI)

 

Every day’s a new day

Every way’s a new way

On the edge of darkness

Finding out what it means to love

 

And to think we’ve found the time

My brothers we stand

For the peace of the land

Is there meaning

 

I’ve got love in my heart

For an army apart

I am bleeding

 

Always searching for love

Always searching for light

What the world is made of

Sometimes thinking it’s right

 

And to think we’ve found the time

My brothers we stand

For the peace of the land

Is there meaning

 

I’ve got love in my heart

For an army apart

I am bleeding

 

Yeah, yeah

yeah, yeah

 

My brothers we stand

For the peace of the land

Is there meaning

 

I’ve got love in my heart

For an army apart

I am bleeding

3.  Flower Power

(written by Greta Van Fleet • published by Yankee Springs Publishing/BMI)

 

She is a lady comes from all around

She’s many places but she’s homeward bound

Now she walks kinda funny

I think she knows

Day by day by day

Our love grows

She’s a lantern in the night

She’s outta sight


Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Heyyyyy

 

It turns to night, fire light

Star shines in her eye

Makes me feel like I’m alive

She’s outta sight, yeahh

Awww yeaahhhh

She’s alright she’s alright she’s alright

She’s outta sight, outta sight

 

Electric gold our love with tender care

Hills of satin grass and maiden’s fair

Now she rides through the night

On a silver storm

Sword in hand

Our fate’s torn

She’s a sparrow of the dawn

Our love is born

 

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Heyayay

 

Turn to night, fire light

Star shines in her eye

Makes me feel like I’m alive

She’s outta sight, yeahh

Awww yeaahhhh

She’s alright she’s alright she’s alright

She’s outta sight, outta sight

 

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oo yeah oo yeah oo yeah

 

And as the days pass by my mind

You are the wrong, the right

You are my sunshine

And as the night begins to die

We are the morning birds that sing against the sky

4.  A Change is Gonna Come

(written by Sam Cooke)

 

I was born by the river

In a little tent

And just like the river baby

I’ve been running ever since

 

It’s been a long, long time comin’

And I know a change is gonna come

 

It’s been to hard living

But I’m afraid to die

Cause I don’t know what’s up there baby

Beyond the sky

 

It’s been a long, long time comin’

And I know a change is gonna come

 

Then I go to my brother

And I say brother help me please

But he winds up knockin me back down

I fall down to my knees

 

There’ve been times that I thought I

Couldn’t last for long

But now I think I’m able

To carry on

 

Its been a long, long time comin’

And I know a change is gonna come

 

Oh yes it will

It’s been a long time comin’

Well I know yeah a change is gonna come

 

It’s been a long

Long time comin’

And I know a change is gonna, a change is gonna come

6.  Meet On the Ledge

(written by Richard Thompson/Fairport Convention)

 

We used to say that come the day

We’d all be making songs

Or finding better words

These ideas never lasted long

 

The way is up along the road

The air is growing thin

Too many friends who tried

Blown off this mountain with the wind

 

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

When my time is up I’ll see all my friends

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

If you really mean it, it all comes round again

 

Now I see I’m all alone

But that’s the only way to be

You’ll have your chance again

Then you can do the work for me

 

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

When my time is up I’ll see all my friends

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

If you really mean it, it all comes round again

 

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

When my time is up I’ll see all my friends

Meet on the ledge

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

If you really mean it, it all comes round again

 

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

On the ledge

All come round again

We’re gonna meet on the ledge

7.  Talk On The Street

(written by Greta Van Fleet • published by Yankee Springs Publishing/BMI)

 

Oh Mama you lie ruin

Can’t you see what you’ve done

Well I’ve been there before

What’s this war that you won

 

Oh mama you walk this way

And I’m cryin’ inside

Well everyone is looking for me and you

And you know that it’s time


And everybody’s talking

But you never let them know

Yes I can hear them talkin’

 

Everyone knows

That there’s talkin’ on the streets

Remember the days

When there’s no one to defeat

Follow me down

To the mountain of the sun

Forgetting the end

as your new life has begun

 

Heyy

 

Look mama the light is low

And the darkness near

Yes everyone is looking for me and you

And the night’s what you fear

 

Look, someone they follow us

And their all undone

Yes everyone is looking for me and you

And the war has begun

 

And everybody’s talking

And you never let em’ know

Yes I can hear them talking

 

Everyone knows

That there’s talkin’ on the streets

Remember the days

when there’s no one to defeat

 

Follow me down

To the mountain of  the sun

Forgetting the end

As your new life has begun

 

And everybody’s talking

And you never let them know

Yes I can hear them talking

And you never let them know

8.  Black Smoke Rising

(written by Greta Van Fleet • published by Yankee Springs Publishing/BMI)

 

I didn’t know there was a tower

Where they look out to the land

To see the people quickly passing by

This is for their own desire

As they spit down to the earth

To feel the power

Boiling in their veins

 

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

Stand up in the cold

 

Many people are dividing

And a world apart

With just one heart

Is bound to keel and fade away

None of us will be deciding

And the fate of man is in the hands

Of he who stands and heeds the call?

 

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

Stand up in the cold

 

Oh Oh

Oh Oh

 

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

Yeahhh

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

(repeats)

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

stand up in the cold
