> Four men tracking down the great white sperm whale

Speaking of whales...

Bob Dylan?s 115th Dream
You Know Who... :wink:

I was riding on the Mayflower
When I thought I spied some land
I yelled for Captain Arab
I have yuh understand
Who came running to the deck
Said, Boys, forget the whale
Look on over yonder
Cut the engines
Change the sail
Haul on the bowline
We sang that melody
Like all tough sailors do
When they are far away at sea

I think I'll call it America
I said as we hit land
I took a deep breath
I fell down, I could not stand
Captain Arab he started
Writing up some deeds
He said, Let's set up a fort
And start buying the place with beads
Just then this cop comes down the street
Crazy as a loon
He throw us all in jail
For carryin' harpoons

Ah me I busted out
Don't even ask me how
I went to get some help
I walked by a Guernsey cow
Who directed me down
To the Bowery slums
Where people carried signs around
Saying, Ban the bums
I jumped right into line
Sayin', I hope that I'm not late
When I realized I hadn't eaten
For five days straight

I went into a restaurant
Lookin' for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The waitress he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I ordered some suzette, I said
Could you please make that crepe
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
From boilin' fat
Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat

Now, I didn't mean to be nosy
But I went into a bank
To get some bail for Arab
And all the boys back in the tank
They asked me for some collateral
And I pulled down my pants
They threw me in the alley
When up comes this girl from France
Who invited me to her house
I went, but she had a friend
Who knocked me out
And robbed my boots
And I was on the street again

Well, I rapped upon a house
With the U.S. flag upon display
I said, Could you help me out
I got some friends down the way
The man says, Get out of here
I'll tear you limb from limb
I said, You know they refused Jesus, too
He said, You're not Him
Get out of here before I break your bones
I ain't your pop
I decided to have him arrested
And I went looking for a cop

I ran right outside
And I hopped inside a cab
I went out the other door
This Englishman said, Fab
As he saw me leap a hot dog stand
And a chariot that stood
Parked across from a building
Advertising brotherhood
I ran right through the front door
Like a hobo sailor does
But it was just a funeral parlor
And the man asked me who I was

I repeated that my friends
Were all in jail, with a sigh
He gave me his card
He said, Call me if they die
I shook his hand and said goodbye
Ran out to the street
When a bowling ball came down the road
And knocked me off my feet
A pay phone was ringing
It just about blew my mind
When I picked it up and said hello
This foot came through the line

Well, by this time I was fed up
At tryin' to make a stab
At bringin' back any help
For my friends and Captain Arab
I decided to flip a coin
Like either heads or tails
Would let me know if I should go
Back to ship or back to jail
So I hocked my sailor suit
And I got a coin to flip
It came up tails
It rhymed with sails
So I made it back to the ship

Well, I got back and took
The parkin' ticket off the mast
I was ripping it to shreds
When this coastguard boat went past
They asked me my name
And I said, Captain Kidd
They believed me but
They wanted to know
What exactly that I did
I said for the Pope of Eruke
I was employed
They let me go right away
They were very paranoid

Well, the last I heard of Arab
He was stuck on a whale
That was married to the deputy
Sheriff of the jail
But the funniest thing was
When I was leavin' the bay
I saw three ships a-sailin'
They were all heading my way
I asked the captain what his name was
And how come he didn't drive a truck
He said his name was Columbus
I just said, Good luck.

The Greatest Story Ever Told
Written by john barlow
performed by the Grateful Dead

Moses came riding up on a guitar
His spurs were a-jingling, the door was ajar
His buckle was silver, his manner was bold
I asked him to come on in out of the cold
His brain was boiling, his reason was spent
He said if nothing was borrowed then nothing was lent
I asked him for mercy, he gave me a gun
Said Now n'again these things just got to be done

Abraham and Isaac
sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work
if you had any sense
Y'know the one thing we need
is a left-hand monkey wrench


Gideon come in with his eyes on the floor
Says: Y'ain't got a hinge, you can't close the door
Moses stood up a full six foot ten
Says: You can't close the door when the wall's caved in
I asked him for water, he poured me some wine
We finished the bottle then broke into mine
You get what you come for, you're ready to go
It's one in ten thousand just come for the show


Abraham and Isaac
Digging on a well
Mama come quick
with the water witch spell
Cool clear water
where you can't never tell

A very unusual sounding song.. check it out sometime if you have not heard :grin:

Yes lets not mess with the credits that was a Hunter song.

Cassidy

Words by John Perry Barlow; music by Bob Weir

I have seen where the wolf has slept by the silver stream.
I can tell by the mark he left you were in his dream.
Ah, child of countless trees.
Ah, child of boundless seas.
What you are, what you're meant to be
Speaks his name, though you were born to me,
Born to me,
Cassidy...

Lost now on the country miles in his Cadillac.
I can tell by the way you smile he's rolling back.
Come wash the nighttime clean,
Come grow this scorched ground green,
Blow the horn, tap the tambourine
Close the gap of the dark years in between
You and me,
Cassidy...

Quick beats in an icy heart.
catch-colt draws a coffin cart.
There he goes now, here she starts:
Hear her cry.
Flight of the seabirds, scattered like lost words
Wheel to the storm and fly.

Faring thee well now.
Let your life proceed by its own design.
Nothing to tell now.
Let the words be yours, I'm done with mine.

I love Weather Report .........Thanks

What shall we say, shall we call it by a name?
Frederick Mathewson Denny, in his article on "Names and naming" in the Encyclopedia of Religion, says
"It is common to nearly all religious practices that in order to communicate with a deity one must know its name. Knowledge of a divine name gives the knower both power and an avenue of communication with its source. This intimate relationship between knowing a name and participating in its power has both religious and magical aspects."
He then proceeds to examine the tradition of the naming of deities throughout world religious practices. See also the note under "I Am".

Box of Rain

American Beauty

Look out of any window,
Any morning, any evening, any day.
Maybe the sun is shining,
Birds are winging, no rain is fallin' from a heavy sky.
What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago.

Walk out of any doorway,
Feel your way, feel your way like the day before.
Maybe you'll find direction
Around some corner where it's been waitin' to meet you.

What do you want me to do, to watch for you while you're sleepin'?
Then please don't be surprised when you find me dreamin' too.

Look into any eyes you find by you,
you can see clear to another day.
Maybe been seen before,
through other eyes on other days while goin' home.

What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago.

Walk into splintered sunlight,
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land.
Maybe you're tired and broken,
Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear.

What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through.

Just a box of rain, wind and water,
Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on.
Sun and shower, wind and rain,
In and out the window like a moth before a flame.

And it's just a box of rain; I don't know who put it there;
Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare.

And it's just a box of rain or a ribbon for your hair;
Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.


This song picks me up when I'm down.  :frown:

Wharf Rat by Grateful Dead:

Old man down,
Way down down, down by the docks of the city.
Blind and dirty,
Asked me for a dime, a dime for a cup of coffee.
I got no dime but I got some time to hear his story.

My name is August West,
And I love my Pearly Baker best more than my wine.
More than my wine -
More than my maker, though he's no friend of mine.

Everyone said,
I'd come to no good, I knew I would Pearly, believe them.
Half of my life,
I spent doin' time for some other fucker's crime,
The other half found me stumbling 'round drunk on Burgundy wine

But I'll get back on my feet again someday,
The good Lord willin', if He says I may.
I know that the life I'm livin's no good,
I'll get a new start, live the life I should.

I'll get up and fly away,
I'll get up and fly away, fly away.

Pearly's been true,
True to me, true to my dyin' day he said,
I said to him,
I said to him, "I'm sure she's been."
I said to him, "I'm sure she's been true to you."

Got up and wandered,
Wandered downtown, nowhere to go but just hang around.
I've got a girl,
Named Bonnie Lee, I know that girl's been true to me.
I know she's been, I'm sure she's been true to me.


--------------------

Goin' where the water tastes like wine.

Black Throated Wind

You're bringing me down, I'm running aground,
Blind in the lights of the interstate cars,
Passing me by, the busses and the semis,
Plugging like stones from a slingshot from mars.

But I'm here on the road, bound to the load,
That I picked up in ten thousand cafes and bars.
Alone with the rush of the drivers that won't pick me up,
The highway, the moon, and clouds and the stars.

Black throated wind, keeps on pourin' in,
With it's words of a life where nothing is new,
Ah, mother american night, I pass from the light,
Ah, I'm drownin' in you.

I left St. Louie, city of blues,
In the midst of a storm I'd rather forget.
I tried to pretend it came to an end,
Cause you weren't the women I once thought I'd met.

But I can't deny, times have gone by,
Well I never had doubts or thoughts of regret,
And I was a man when all this began,
Who wouldn't think twice about being there yet.

Black throated wind, whisper in sin,
And speaking on life that passes like dew.
It's forced me to see you've done better by me,
Better by me that I've done by you.

Now what's to be found by racing around,
you carry your pain wherever you go,
Full of blues, and tryin' to lose,
You ain't gonna learn what you don't wanna know.

So I give you my eyes and all of their lies,
Please help them to learn as well as to see.
Capture a glance, and make it dance,
But looking at you is looking at me.

Black throated wind, keeps on pourin' in,
With it's words of a life that could almost be true,
Ah, mother American night, here comes a light.
I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do.

Going back home that's what I'm gonna do.
I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do.
Going back home that's what I'm gonna do.
Cause you've done better by me than I've done by you,
I'm drowning in you.

one of my favorites(ha there all my favorites), but this one personaly digs in deep for me
BROWN EYED WOMEN
gone are the days when the ox fall down
he`d take up the yoke and plow the fields around
gone are the days when the lady`s said please
gently jack jones won`t you come to me
brown eyed women and red grenadine
the bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean
sound of the thunder with the rain pourin down
and it looks like the old mans gettin on
in 1920 when he steped to the bar
he drank to the dregs of the wiskey jar
in 1930 when the wall caved in
he paid his way sellin red eye gin
brown eyed women and red grenadine
the bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean
sound of the thunder with the rain pourin down
and it looks like the old mans gettin on
delilah jones was the mother of twins
two times over and the rest was sins
raised eight boys, only i turned bad
didn`t get the lickins that the other ones had
brown eyed women and red grenadine
the bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean
sound of the thunder with the rain pourin down
and it looks like the old mans gettin on
tumble down shack in bigfoot county
snowed so hard that the roof caved in
delilah jones went to meet her god
and the old man never was the same again
brown eyed women and red grenadine
tthe bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean
sound of the thunder with the rain pourin down
and it looks like the old mans gettin on
daddy made wiskey and he made it well
cost two dollors and it burned like hell
i cut hickory to fire the still
drink down a bottle and your ready to kill
brown eyed women and red grenadine
the bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean
sound of the thunder with the rain pourin down
and it looks like the old mans gettin on :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Some rise

Stella Blue

All the years combine, they melt into a dream,
A broken angel sings from a guitar.
In the end there's just a song comes cryin' up the night
Thru all the broken dreams and vanished years.
Stella blue. Stella blue.

When all the cards are down, there's nothing left to see,
There's just the pavement left and broken dreams.

In the end there's still that song comes cryin' like the wind.
Down every lonely street that's ever been
Stella blue. Stella blue.

I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel, can't win for trying.
Dust off those rusty strings just one more time,
Gonna make them shine, shine

It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free,
There's nothing you can hold, for very long.
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind,
It seems like all this life was just a dream.
Stella blue. Stella blue.

Let my inspiration flow
in token lines suggesting rhythm
that will not forsake me
till my tale is told and done

while the firelights aglow
strange shadows in the flames will grow
till things weve never seen
will seem familiar

shadows of a sailor forming
winds both foul and fair both swarm
down in carlisle he loved a ladie
many years ago

here beside him stands a man
a soldier from the looks of him
who came through many fights
but lost at love

while the storyteller speaks
a door within the fire creaks
suddenly flies open
and a girl is standing there

eyes alight with glowing hair
all that fancy paints as fair
she takes her fan and throws it
in the lions den

which of you to gain me tell
will risk uncertain pains of hell
i will not forgive you
if you will not take the chance

the sailor gave at least a try
the soldier being much too wise
stradegy was his strength
not disaster

the sailor coming out again
the lady fairly lept at him
thats how it stands today
you decide if he was wise

the storyteller makes no choice
soon you will not here his voice
his job is to shed light
and not to master

since the end is never told
we pay the teller off in gold
in hopes he will come back
but he cannot be bought or sold

Inspiration,
move me brightly
light the song with sense and color
hold away dispair

more than this i will not ask
faced with mysteries dark and vast
statements just seem vain at last
some rise, some fall, some climb,
to get to terrapin

counting stars by candle light
all are dim but one is bright
the spiral light of venus
rising first and shining best
oh from the northwest corner
of a brandnew crescent moon
crickets and cicayas sing

A RARE AND DIFFERENT TUNE

TERRAPIN STATION

in the shadow of the moon

and i know well be there soon

terrapin
i cant figure out
if itst the end or begining
and the trains put its brakes on
and the whistle is screamin

TERRAPIN


while you where gone
the spaces filled with     :smirk:
