Phillip Roebuck Can I Keep You

Hold my hand fast to sleep
Give me your master key
O Baby can I keep you
Lean your head back to kiss
Throw my arms up into this
O Baby can I keep you
Wake me up if you are able
Let’s have our breakfast at your kitchen table
In the morning O can I keep you
I walk you up and down your street
Take me home bury me deep in your sheets
O Baby can I keep you
Some men got money and some men got charm
But I ain’t got nothing without you on my arm
O Baby can I keep you
In come the breakers I’m riding the crest
I lie like a prince on your warm mother breast
And when I pass by the saints in their frozen stone gowns
They wink like they know me and what I have found
O Baby can I keep you

Phillip Roebuck Somebody Take Me Home Lyrics

I have dreamed upon your floor
That I found the love I lost
I have rested on the rocks
Of rivers, I had to cross
I’ve been fed by all my friends
Though I’ve already wept a creek
I’ve learned many a secret handshake
And I’ve held many a weary soul to sleep
Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there’s something left of me
I have gambled with the years
Held a few hands of tenderness
I was king once for a day
Before the queen laid me to rest
I’ve been sober on Bourbon Street
Wasted on my wedding day
I’ve seen the eyes of my love
When there was nothing left to say
Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there’s something left of me
I have danced with gypsy girls
Who sang a spell into my ear
I’ve seen every United State
And I have rocked a newborn babe
I built fires to burn through the night
Had to put out some that burn too bright
Swam in the bayou while drinking rum
I’ve waited on saviors who didn’t come
Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there’s something left of me
