All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you

Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you

You took the part
That once was my heart
So why not take all of me

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you

Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you

You took the best
So why not take the rest
Baby, take all of me

Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby.

Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Refrain:
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
When my feeble life is o'er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o'er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.

And he shows them, pearly white.
       Am                 Dm
Just a jack-knife has old Mack Heath babe,

And he keeps it outta sight.

2. You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,
Scarlet billows start to spread,
Fancy gloves, though, wears Mack Heath babe,
So there's never, never a trace of red.

3. Now on the sidewalk, oh on Sunday morning (don't ya know)
Lies a body, just oozin' life,
Yeah, someone's sneakin' 'round the corner,
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

4.There's a tugboat down by the river, (don't 'cha know?)
With a cement bag, just-a droopin' on down.
Oh, that cement is just for the weight, dear,
Five'll get ya ten ol' Mackie's back in town.

5.Now you heard about Louie Miller,
He disappeared, babe, after drawin' out, 
All his hard earned cash.
And now Mack he spends just like a sailor,
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

6.Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,
Now that old Mackie's back in town.

It must have been moonglow that led me straight to you
I still hear you sayin', "Dear one, hold me fast"
And I keep on prayin', "Oh Lord, please let this last"

We seemed to float right through the air
Heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere

And now when there's moonglow, way up in the blue
I'll always remember, that moonglow gave me you

Lyrics:

I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I'm talkin' to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette

And the message comin' from my eyes says leave it alone...

Don't wanna hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it comin' back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And the feeling coming from my bones says find a home...

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera forevermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more

And the stains comin' from my blood tell me "Go back home"...

It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she coos 'em down
Fellers, she can't get enough, fellers, she ain't met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her

I'll Fly Away (Bb)

Some bright morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
To that home on Gods celestial shore
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away
I'll fly away

Monster Mash

(simple do wop starting from G, C/D on bridge)

      G
I was working in the lab late one night 
        Em
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight 
       C
For my monster from his slab began to rise 
    D
And suddenly to my surprise 

           G
He did the mash 

He did the monster mash 
            Em
The monster mash 

It was a graveyard smash 
           C
He did the mash 

It caught on in a flash 
           D
He did the mash 

He did the monster mash

        G
From my laboratory in the castle east 
       Em
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast 
    C
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes 
   D
To get a jolt from my electrodes 

             G
They did the mash 

They did the monster mash 
            Em
The monster mash 

It was a graveyard smash 
             C
They did the mash 

It caught on in a flash 
             D
They did the mash 

They did the monster mash
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/bobby-pickett/273758.html ]
    C   
The zombies were having fun 
    D
The party had just begun 
    C
The guests included Wolf Man 
D
Dracula and his son 

    G
The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds 
Em
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds 
    C
The Coffin-Bangers were about to arrive 
           D
With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five" 

                G
They played the mash 

They played the monster mash 
            Em
The monster mash 

It was a graveyard smash 
                C
They played the mash 

It caught on in a flash 
                D
They played the mash 

They played the monster mash

Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring 
Seems he was troubled by just one thing 
He opened the lid and shook his fist 
And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?" 

It's now the mash 
It's now the monster mash 
The monster mash 
And it's a graveyard smash 
It's now the mash 
It's caught on in a flash 
It's now the mash 
It's now the monster mash 

Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band 
And my monster mash is the hit of the land 
For you, the living, this mash was meant too 
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you 

Then you can mash 
Then you can monster mash 
The monster mash 
And do my graveyard smash 
Then you can mash 
You'll catch on in a flash 
Then you can mash 
Then you can monster mash
