about

Having released his critically acclaimed debut album, Arkansas Dave embarked on a tour across Europe, lasting 2 months and over 25 shows, reaching its pinnacle at Montreux Jazz Festival.

"After being on tour in Europe for over a month, at that point, the band was firing on all cylinders and we were more confident than ever to walk on that stage. This is the best representation of what my band and I sound like live. That’s why I chose to put this out as a live album."
- Arkansas Dave

"Playing Montreux Jazz Festival was absolutely the highlight of my career so far. To be able to release a live album from that show is an affirmation that this is what I’m meant to be doing with my life."
- Arkansas Dave

Track Name: Bad at Being Good (Live)
I didn’t get to bed last night,
Until the sun was shining bright.
Baby, it don’t make it right,
Don’t let me sleep in the cold tonight.


Well, I’m bad at being good,
I tried the best that I could.
But I love you that’s understood.
Just had at being good,
I’m bad at being good.


I know I said I’ll Change,
But baby wild horses can’t be tamed.
Don’t wanna stay the same,
Don’t let me sleep out in the rain.


I said I’m no good, baby.
But you love me just the same.
And I don’t mean maybe,
Let me sleep with you tonight baby
Track Name: Think Too Much (Live)
Well, I think I think too much,

And I don’t know why.

And I thinkI drink too much,

I can’t be satisfied.

When I get home and I sleep in my bed,
Ain’t nobody for me.

I grab my guitar and I play a tune.

It’s the only thing true to me.



Cause I know,

Lord, I know.

Ain’t no good lovin’ for me.

Ain’t nobody gonna hold me down.
I gotta be free!

You know, baby, I ain’t playing no games,
But I play to win.

My last girl she was two-timing me,
Don’t think I’ll see her again.

But then I think I think too much,

So here we go again.

I think I’ll have another drink,

So, pass that bottle, friend
Track Name: Come Back to Me (Live)
Baby, come back to me.

Come back to me.

Darling can’t you see?

That you gotta come back to me.
I’ve been working so hard, baby,
To give you what you need.
Baby, come back to me.

Baby, be true to me...be true.

You know I’m true to you,

You gotta be true to me too.

Forever & always is what you gotta give to me.
So, baby come back to me.



I got this feeling.

Whenever you’re around.

It gets me so high,

My feet don’t touch the ground.
Baby, come back to me!

Baby, be kind to me...be kind.

You know I never lied.

And no matter how hard I try,

To make you see what you mean to me.
So, baby be kind to me.
Track Name: Bad Water (Live)
Went down to the water,
On my knees to pray.
That dirty damned water,
Took my soul away.


Bad Water. x4

Bad water let me be,

Took my soul away from me.
Drown my sorrows,

Way down in the water so deep.



Bad water gonna get my soul.
Oh, bad water, gonna get my soul.
Gonna get my, gonna get my, gonna get my soul.

Bad water let me be,

Give my soul back to me.

I’ll go down in the water below.
Way down to fetch my soul.



Bad water, had water.

Gonna get my soul.

Bad water, had water.

Gonna get my soul.

Sometimes you just can’t walk away...
Track Name: Chocolate Jesus (Live)
Well, I don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the bible
I got my own special way
I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more
Fall down on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store
Well, I've got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied
Well, I don't want no Abba Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well, it's the only thing that can pick me up
It's better than a cup of gold
See, only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul
When the weather gets rough and it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior up in cellophane
He flows…
Track Name: Squeaky Clean (Live)
I was born a sinner.
I sure ain't no saint
I've been down on my luck
But I can’t complain

I find myself in
The strangest of things
Oh the places I’ve been
I aint ashamed

You can lock me up
Can’t throw away the key
No matter what,
I come out squeaky clean

Aint no winner
Of golden things
But I’m richer baby
Than any millionaire’s dream

You can take that to heart
That cheque’s in the bank
My fortune’s my freedom
That won’t ever change

You can lock me up
Can’t throw away the key
No matter what,
I come out squeaky clean
I come out squeaky clean
I come out squeaky clean


I come out squeaky clean
I come out squeaky clean
Track Name: The Wheel (Live)
The wheel it goes round,

My how life takes you for a ride.

No where to be found,

Life will take you by the hand.
Wisdom will guide you,

If you just take the time to understand.



And you’ll know where you go.

Your light will always show.

You’ll be tried but true.

Cause in the end only you can save you.

No matter where life takes you.

Always know your work will follow where you go.
So, care for one another,

And always let your love show.
Track Name: Rest of My Days (Live)
Going down South, traveling down that road again.

Just a-wondering, ifI can make it home again.

Without the worry of anybody troubling me,

Cause I can’t seem to stay on that narrow street.

And it seems like this road’s getting longer again,

I’m just glad that I’m traveling down this road with my friends.


Cause I woke up this morning to a beautiful new day,
And I’m thankful for everything that I’ve prayed.
Like my good friends, and a nice place to stay.

I just wanna be happy the rest of my days.

So, I guess I’ll travel down this road ‘til I’m dead.

Cause there’s a lot of things I gotta do,

Before I can rest.

And I just can’t get this dream outta my head,

Someday people will hear all these words that I’ve said.
Just take them to heart,

Cause I also bleed red.

I just hope that you’re touched by the words that I’ve said.
Track Name: Honey Bee (Live)
Come on now, give me some sugar
Give me some sugar, little honey bee
Don't be afraid, not gonna hurt you
I wouldn't hurt my little honey bee

Don't say a word, 'bout what we're doin'
Don't say nothin' little honey bee
Don't tell your momma, don't tell your sister
Don't tell your boyfriend, little honey bee

She like to call me king bee
She like to buzz 'round my tree
I call her honey bee
I'm a man in a trance
I'm a boy in short pants
When I see my honey bee
And I've got something to say

Look here now, peace in the valley
Peace in the valley with my honey bee
Don't say a word, 'bout what we're doin'
Don't say nothin' little honey bee

She give me her monkey hand
And a Rambler sedan
I'm the king of Milwaukee
Her juju beads are so nice
She kissed my third cousin twice
I'm the king of Pomona
And I've got something to sa
Track Name: Diamonds (Live)
I don’t know what to say anymore,
So, I sing it in a song.

And when I’m dead don’t bury me,
Scatter me back to Arkansas.

There’s a man packing his things,
Greener pastures down the road.
No direction in his sight,

Just the dream of being home

So, with a few dollars & a big jug of wine.
Gonna catch a train.
Cause this dollar ain’t waiting on a dime.

Chorus:

Don’t tell me I’m dreaming,

I won’t tell you goodbye.

You gotta better Chance of getting hit by lightning.
Than seeing diamonds fall from the sky.

Bridge/Outro:

So, I’ll keep on lookin’,

for those diamonds to come raining down.

IfI don’t see them,

Then you know that I’m gonna turn back around.
Oh, yea gonna turn back around.

Turn back around!

I’m gonna turn back around! X2
Track Name: Meet Me with Your Black Drawers On / Let's Have a Party
Woke up this morning, babe
Reach for the telephone
Woke up this morning,
Reach for the telephone
I got your message baby,
To meet me with your black drawers on

You don't have to worry baby,
I'll never leave you all alone
You don't have to worry,
I'll never leave you all alone
Just call me and tell me baby,
To meet you with my black drawers on

Baby, meet me with your black drawers on
Baby, meet me with your black drawers on

Some people like to rock
Some people like to roll
But movin' and a groovin'
Gonna satisfy my soul
Let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Oooh, let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Send 'im to the store
An' let's buy some more
An' let's have a party tonight

I've never kissed a bear
I've never kissed a goon
But I can shake a chicken
In the middle of the room
Let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Oooh, let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Send 'im to the store
An' let's buy some more
An' let's have a party tonight

Is knockin' at the door
Bring him in and fill him up
And sit him on the floor
Let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Oooh, let's have a party (Let's have a party)
Send 'im to the store
An' let's buy some more
An' let's have a party tonight
Track Name: On My Way
It’s been two years, baby, and nothing seemed to Change.
All the tears I cried, baby, everything just stayed the same.


But I know, when you do,
When you stop, when you’re through.


Baby, you do something for me.


When I hold you in my arms so tight,
Ain’t worried about doing nothing wrong or doing right.

When we’re together, you take the lead.
You feel me sweat, you know I’d bleed.


Baby, you do something for me.


When we sleep intertwined.
I taste your skin, lips like wine.

You made me stop. You made me think.
You took my breath with just one wink.


Baby, you do something for me.
Oh, baby you put my soul to ease.
