Sitting on top of the World
    #1157491 - 12/20/02 07:42 AM (21 years, 3 months ago)

Sugar magnolia, blossoms blooming, heads all empty and I don't care,
Saw my baby down by the river, knew she'd have to come up soon for air.

Sweet blossom come on, under the willow, we can have high times if you'll abide
We can discover the wonders of nature, rolling in the rushes down by the riverside.

She's got everything delightful, she's got everything I need,
Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double, pays my ticket when I speed

She comes skimmin' through rays of violet, she can wade in a drop of dew,
She don't come and I don't follow, waits backstage while I sing to you.

Well, she can dance a Cajun rhythm, jump like a willys in four wheel drive.
She's a summer love for spring, fall and winter. She can make happy any man alive.

Sugar magnolia, ringing that bluebell, caught up in sunlight, come on out singing
I'll walk you in the sunshine, come on honey, come along with me.

She's got everything delightful, she's got everything I need,
A breeze in the pines and the sun and bright moonlight, lazing in the sunshine yes
indeed.

Sometimes when the cuckoo's crying, when the moon is half way down,
Sometimes when the night is dying, I take me out and I wander around, I wander
'round.

Uh thick cloud caught uh piper clubs tail
The match struck blue on uh railroad rail
The old puff horse was just pullin' thru
'n uh man wore uh peg leg forever
I'm on the bum where the hoboes run
The air breaks with filthy chatter
Oh I don't care there's no place there
I don't think it matters
My skin's blazin' thru
'n my clothes in tatters
'n the railroad looked
Like uh "Y" up the hill of ladders
Ohe shoe fell on the gravel
One stick poked down
Gray of age fell down on uh pair of ears
An eagle shined thru my hole watch pocket
Uh gingham girl baby girl
Passed me by in tears
Uh jack rabbit raised his folded ears
Uh beautiful sagebrush jack rabbit
'n an oriole sang like an orange
His breast full uh worms
'n his tail clawed the evenin' like uh hammer
His wings took t' air like uh bomber
'n my rain can caught me uh cup uh water
When I got into town
Odd jobs mam ah yer horse I'll fodder
I'm the round house man
I once was yer father
Uh little up the road uh wooden
Candy stripe barber pole
'n above it read uh sign "Painless Parker"
Lic-licorice twisted around under uh fly
'n uh youngster cocked 'er eye
God before me if I'm not crazy
Is my daughter
Come little one with yer little dimpled fingers
Gimme one 'n I'll buy you uh cherry phosphate
Take you down t' the foamin' brine 'n water
'n show you the wooden tits
On the Goddess with the pole out s'full sail
That tempted away yer peg legged father
I was shanghaied by uh high hat beaver moustache man
'n his pirate friend
I woke up in vomit 'n beer in uh banana bin
'n uh soft lass with brown skin
Bore me seven babies with snappin' black eyes
'n beautiful ebony skin
'n here it is I'm with you my daughter
Thirty years away can make uh seaman's eyes
Uh round house man's eyes flow out water
Salt water

(Orange Claw Hammer, Captain Beefheart)

Sitting on Top of The World
by Chester Burnett as performed by Cream

One summer day, she went away
Gone and left me, she's gone to stay.
She's gone, but I don't worry,
Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world.

All last summer, worked on this farm
Had to take Christmas in my overalls.
She's gone, gone, but I don't worry, no
Cause I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world.

Going down to the freight yard, yeh, yeh, yeh
Gonna catch me a freight train.
Gonna leave this town, yeh, yeh, yeh
Work done got to hard.
She's gone, but I don't worry,
Cause I'm sittin', I'm sittin'on top of the world.

Stagger Lee

1948, Xmas eve, with a full moon over town
Stagger Lee shot Billy DeLions
And he blew that poor boy down.
Do you know what he shot him for?
What do you make of that?
Cause Billy DeLions threw the lucky dice
Won Stagger Lee's Stetson hat.

Bayo, Bayo, tell me how can this be?
You arrest the girls for turning tricks
But you're scared of Stagger Lee.
Stagger Lee is a madman and he shot my Billy D.
Bayo go get him or give the job to me.

Delia DeLions, dear sweet Delia-D
How the hell can I arrest him? He's twice as big as me.
Well don't ask me to go downtown, I won't come back alive [no more].
Not only is that mother big but he packs a .45 [four].

Bayo, Delia said, just give me a gun
he shot my Billy dead now I'm gonna see him hung.
She went into the DeLion's club through Billy DeLions blood
Stepped up to Stagger Lee at the bar,
Said, "Buy me a gin fizz, love."

As Stagger Lee lit a cigarette she shot him in the balls
Blew the smoke off her revolver, had him dragged to city hall
Bayo, Bayo, see you hang him high
He shot my Billy dead and now he's got to die.

Delia went a walking down on Singapore Street
A three-piece band on the corner played "Near My God to Thee"
But Delia whistled a different tune, what tune could it be?

The song that woman sung was "Look Out Stagger Lee".
The song that Delia sung was "Look Out Stagger Lee".

Sitting on Top of the World

Mississippi River so big and wide, blond haired woman on the other side.
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

I worked all summer, spring and fall, blond haired woman the cause of it all.
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

I saw her in Dallas and El Paso. Said come back baby, I need you so.
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Mississippi River so big and wide, blond haired woman on the other side.
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Pressed Rat And Warthog
by Ginger Baker and Mike Taylor (Cream again...)

Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
They didn't want to; 'twas all they had got.
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

Sadly they left, telling no one goodbye.
Pressed rat wore red jodhpurs, warthog a striped tie.
Between them, they carried a three-legged sack,
Went straight round the corner and never came back.

Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
The bad captain madman had told them to stop
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

The bad captain madman had ordered their fate.
He laughed and stomped off with a nautical gate.
The gate turned into a deroga tree
And his pegleg got woodworm and broke into three.

Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
They didn't want to; 'twas all they had got.
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more
I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy

Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, Monopoly

World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war

Alvin Lee

Great Song! I'd forgotten all about it. Thanks! :cool:

White Room
by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown (Yet Another Cream Song - YaCS 3.0)

In the white room with black curtains near the station.
Blackroof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings.
Silver horses ran down moonbeams in your dark eyes.
Dawnlight smiles on you leaving, my contentment.

I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines;
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.

You said no strings could secure you at the station.
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows.
I walked into such a sad time at the station.
As I walked out, felt my own need just beginning.

I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back;
Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves.

At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd.
Consolation for the old wound now forgotten.
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes.
She's just dressing, goodbye windows, tired starlings.

I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd;
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves.

Shine
by Lil Wayne ft. the Hot Boys.

Wha', wha', wha', wha', wha'
What', wha', wha', wha', wha'
Cash Money Millionaires
So take it there. . .

Yellow Viper, yellow Hummer, yellow Benz
Yellow PT Cruiser, yellow 'Lac on rims
Drop yellow 'Vette and a platinum Rolls-Royce
That's seven different cars- everyday I got a choice
On my way to pick up Joyce, she be makin' me moist
Givin' me head while she hummin', she can play with her voice
And she got nice thighs, a big pump ass
She could ride a dick too, make me cum fast
I like them modelin' bitches, I love them swallowin' bitches
Where them hoes? There they at
I'm 'bout to follow them bitches
I know you with your folks but that nigga is broke
You might as well open your legs up and let a nigga poke
I'ma show you what it is not to be a window shopper
Mama, you can have Fendi, mama, you can have Prada
All you gotta do is break a nigga off propuh
You can be with your man, I ain't tryin' ta stop ya

Shine- From my head down to my shoes
Shine- Skrrrrrrtttt on twenty-two's
Shine- Check my babymama
Shine- Pimp Rovers, not Hondas
Shine- I'ma spend it 'til it's gone
Shine- Don't know when I'm comin home
Shine- Pop X and drink Cris'
Shine- My life is the shit

It be me, fire Wayne, ice and change
You can catch me in an aqua Range, smashin' thangs
With them twenty-two inch chopper blades
Diamond face, diamond brace
More colors than the game Simon Says
Go, behind me
And mama on forty-fifth she told me, "I'm a lez"
And she ain't like too much of dick
But yet she promised head and so I took it anyway
But, bitch, I got family, get your pussy anyway
Okay, let's talk about this ice that I'm carryin'
All these karats like I'm a fuckin vegetarian
Niggas play, I bury them, ya'll already knowin'
I threw up my arm and bitches thought it started snowin'
See, I'ma keep it goin', Big Tymin', ya heard me?
Dawg, I got cake like everyday my birfday
Wait, I don't think they heard me
I say, dawg, I got cake like everyday my birthday

Shine- From my head down to my shoes
Shine- Skrrrrrrtttt on twenty-two's
Shine- Check my babymama
Shine- Pimp Rovers, not Hondas
Shine- I'ma spend it 'til it's gone
Shine- Don't know when I'm comin home
Shine- Pop X and drink Cris'
Shine- My life is the shit

I'ma Hot Boy- that's namebrand and top of the line
Ride fly daily, all year 'round I shine
Ain't a nigga and they mama gonna stop me, dawg
Come through on dub-deuces, they jock me, dawg
Glock cocked for haters tryin' ta block me, dawg
Catch 'em so low, they greasy, don't shock me, dawg
Well, get the fuck- slide on out the way
And let BG ease down the shinin' linen
Let the diamonds and the jewellery light shit up
Each piece of jewellery I own, I ice it up
You don't want to put your vehicle next to us
'Cause all of our vehicles, we dress 'em up
With television, Dreamcast, DVD's
Nice sounds, buttons, it's twenties
I'm a Cash Money, Hot Boy, Big Tymer, nigga
That'll hold a pinky finger up and blind you, nigga

Shine- From my head down to my shoes
Shine- Skrrrrrrtttt on twenty-two's
Shine- Check my babymama
Shine- Pimp Rovers, not Hondas
Shine- I'ma spend it 'til it's gone
Shine- Don't know when I'm comin home
Shine- Pop X and drink Cris'
Shine- My life is the shit

I'ma stunt 'til I die, so you better respeck it
'Cause whoever try tessin' is gonna be ressin'
I'm a young millionaire, Hot Boy, nigga
Bling-blingin' everyday- plus I got work
Nigga like me stay in the cut twenty-four-seven
Steady stackin my ends on dubs twenty-four-seven
Every car you wish you had- we got it, we got it
Bentleys, Hummers and Jags, big bodies, big bodies
Love to floss, no secret we stunnas
Niggas steady baller block, can't take nothin' from us
Young nigga, livin' a life surrounded by ice
Hoes be like, Damn, them boys, they're nothin' nicee
They on fire- that must be them Hot Boys
You motherfuckin' right- you think this not, girl?
Better think twice and get it right, dawg
Know you recognize, we got it on lock for all.

Shine- From my head down to my shoes
Shine- Skrrrrrrtttt on twenty-two's
Shine- Check my babymama
Shine- Pimp Rovers, not Hondas
Shine- I'ma spend it 'til it's gone
Shine- Don't know when I'm comin home
Shine- Pop X and drink Cris'
Shine- My life is the shit

Uh-uhhh-uhh
Uh-oh
Two thousand and one. . . my life is the shit- know why?
I'm representing, I'ma spit it
As long as they make that shit- I'ma break that shit
Ya heard me? It's like that- believe that
This year- fuck it - I said it before and I meant it
I'm buying me a city!
New Mannie, Louisianie, ya biotch.

Almost Cut My Hair

Almost cut my hair, it happened just the other day.
It's getting? kinda long, I coulda said it wasn't in my way.
But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly,
cause I feel like I owe it to someone.

Must be because I had the flu' for Christmas and I'm not feeling up to par.
It increases my paranoia, like looking at my mirror and seeing a police car.
But I'm not giving in an inch to fear cause I missed myself this year.
I feel like I owe it to someone.

When I finally get myself together, I'm going to get down in that sunny southern weather.
And I find a place inside to laugh, separate the wheat from the chaff.
I feel like I owe it to someone.

china cat sunflower by the good ole grateful dead

look for awhile at the china cat sunflower
proud walking jingle in the midnight sun
copper dome bodhi drip a silver kimono
like a crazy quilt stargown
through a dream night wind
crazy cat peekin through a lace bandana
like a one eyed cheshire
like a diamond eye jack
a leaf of all colors plays
a golden string fiddle
to a double e waterfall over my back
comic book colors on a violin river
crying leonardo words
from a silk trombone
i rang a silent bell
beneath a shower of pearls
in the eagle wing palace
of the queen chinese

Some climb

yah it`s dank
robert hunter wrote it after he i.v.`d some DMT
one more of my favorites
THE ELEVEN
no more time to tell how
this is the season of what
now is the time of returning
with thought jewels polished and gleaming
now is the time of believing
the child has relinquished the riegns
now is the test of the boomerang
tossed in the night of redeeming
eight sided whispering hallelujah hatreack
seven faced marble eye transitory dream doll
six proud walkers on jingle bell rainbow
five men writing with fingers of gold

Three girls waiting in a foreign dominion
Riding in the whalebelly, fade away in moonlight,
Sink beneath the waters to the coral sands below.

Another Good One!

The other day they waited, the sky was dark and faded,
Solemnly they stated, "He has to die, you know he has to die."
All the children learnin', from books that they were burnin',
Every leaf was turnin' ; to watch him die, you know he had to die.

The summer sun looked down on him, his mother could but frown on him,
And all the others sound on him, but it doesn't seem to matter.

And when the day had ended, with rainbow colors blended,
His mind remained unbended, he had to die, you know he had to die.

Spanish lady comes to me, she lays on me this roes.
It rainbow spirals round and round it trembles and explodes.
It left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away.
But the heat came 'round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day.

Skippin' through the lily fields I came across an empty space,
It trembled and exploded, left a bus stop in it's place.
The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began,
There was cowboy Neal at the wheel of the bus to never ever land.

And when the day had ended, with rainbow colors blended,
Their minds remained unbended,
He had to die, Oh, you know he had to die.

saint stephen with a rose
in and out of the garden he goes
country garland in the wind and the rain
wherever he goes the people always complain
stephen prosper in his time
well he may and he may decline
did it matter, does it now
stephen would answer if he only knew how
wishing well with a golden bell
bucket hanging clear to hell
hell halfway twixt now and then
stephen fill it up and lower down
and lower down again
lady finger dipped in moonlight
writing what for across the morning sky
sunlight splatters dawn with answers
darkness shrugs abd bids the day good by
speeding arrow ,sharp and narrow
what alot of fleeting matters you have spurned
several seasons with there treasons
wrap the babe in scarlet covers call it your own
did he doubt or did he try
answers a plenty in the by and by
talk about your plenty`s, talf about your ill`s
one man gathers what another man spills
st. stephen will remain
all he lost he shall regain
seashoe washed in the suds and the foam
been here so long he`s got to callin it home
fortune come crawling, calliope woman
spinning that courias sense of your own
can you answer, yes i can
what would be the answer to the answer man

high green chilly winds and windy vines and loopes around the twisted shafts of lavender, there crawling to the sun
underfoot the ground is patched with climbing arms of ivy wrapped around the manzanita, stark and shiny in the breeze
wonder who will water all the children in the garden when they sigh about the barren lack of rain and drop so hungry from the sky
william tell has stretched his bow till it won`t stretch no further more and/ or it may require a that hasn`t come before

Sitting On Top Of The World
by Cream (Wheels Of Fire)

written by Chester Burnett
In reply to:


One summer day, she went away;
Gone and left me, she's gone to stay.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.

All the summer, worked all this fall.
Had to take Christmas in my overalls.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.

Going down to the freight yard, gonna catch me a freight train.
Going to leave this town; worked and got to home.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.

> 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:

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:
