 Baby It’s You :  The Smiths  Key of “E”   E/DflatMinor/Fsharp/B/E

It’s not the way you smile that touched my heart.
It’s not the way you kissed that tears me apart.
Many, many, many nights go by.
I sit alone at home and cry over you.
What can I do?
Don’t want nobody, nobody
Cause, baby, it’s you.
Baby, it’s you.
Is it true what they say about you?
They say you’ll never, ever, never be true.
It doesn’t matter what they say.
I know I’m gonna love you any old way.
What can I do?
What ’bout you?
Don’t want nobody, nobody.
Baby, it’s you.
Baby, it’s you. Baby.
It doesn’t matter what they say.
I know I’m gonna love any old way.
What can I do?
What ’bout you?
Don’t want nobody, nobody.
Baby, it’s you.
Baby, it’s you.

Don’t leave me alone.
Come on home.
Baby, it’s you.
Baby, it’s you.
You know I need your lovin’
You know I love you.
Baby, it’s you.
Baby…

The Load out/Stay  Jackson Browne  Key of G

Now the seats are all empty,
Let the roadies take the stage.
Pack it up and tear it down.
They’re the first to come,
And last to leave.
Working for that minimum wage.

They’ll set it up in another town.
Tonight the people were so fine.
They waited there in line,
And when they got up on their feet
They made the show.
And that was sweet but I can hear the sound,
Of slamming doors and folding chairs.
And that’s a sound they’ll never know.

Now roll them cases out and lift them amps.
Haul them trusses down and get’em up them ramps.
‘Cause when it comes to movin’ me,
You know, you guys are the champs.
But when that last guitar’s been packed away,
You know that I still want to play.
So just make sure you got it all set to go,
Before you come for my piano.

Instrumental break, cheering & whistling, featuring steel guitar.

But the band’s on the bus,
And they’re waiting to go.
We’ve got to drive all night,
And do a show in Chicago.
Or Detroit, I don’t know,
We do so many shows in a row.

And these towns all look the same.
We just pass the time in the hotel rooms,
And wander ’round backstage.
Till those lights come up,
And we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.

Instrumental break, featuring steel guitar and full band.

Now, we got Country & Western on the bus, R & B.
We got Disco and 8-tracks,
And cassettes in stereo.
We’ve got rural scenes & magazines,
And we’ve got truckers on CB.
And we got Richard Pryor on the video.
We got time to think of the ones we love,
While the miles roll away.
But the only time that seems too short,
Is the time that we get to play.

People you’ve got the power,
Over what we do,
You can sit there and wait,
Or you can pull us through.
Come along, sing the song,
You know that you can’t go wrong.
‘Cause when that morning sun comes beatin’ down,
You’re going to wake up in your town.
But we’ll be scheduled to appear,
A thousand miles away from here.

People stay just a little bit longer.
We want to play-ay just a little bit longer.

Browne & Lindley:
Now, the promoter don’t mind.
And the union don’t mind.
If we take a little time,
And we leave it all behind,
And sing ((one more song…))

Oh-oh, won’t you stay-ay.
Just a little bit longer-er-er-er.
Please, please, please, say you will.
((Say you will.))

Instrumental break.

Oh won’t you stay-ay-ay.
Just a little bit longer.
Oh-oh, please, please, stay-ay-ay.
Just a little bit more.

Browne:
Now, the promoter don’t mind.
And the roadies don’t mind.
If we take a little time,
And we leave this all behind,
And sing one more song.

        Bbm7                      Eb7      Abmaj7
When All The Things You Are are mine.

Us And Them  Pink Floyd  (Drop down D)

Us and Them
And after all we’re only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it’s only round and round and round
Haven’t you heard it’s a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There’s room for you inside
Down and Out
It can’t be helped but there’s a lot of it about
With, without
And who’ll deny that’s what the fightings all about
Get out of the way, it’s a busy day
And I’ve got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

Who’s Cheatin’ Who Lyrics by Alan Jackson   G

Everywhere you look you can write a book
On the trouble of a woman and a man
But you can not impose you can’t stick your nose
Into something that you don’t understand

[Chorus]
Still you wonder
Who’s cheatin’ who, who’s being true
Who don’t even care anymore
It makes you wonder
Who’s doing right with someone tonight
And who’s car is parked next door

I thought I knew her well I really couldn’t tell
That she had another lover on her mind
You see it felt so right when she held me tight
How could I be so blind

[Chorus]

A heart is on the line each and every time
Love is stolen in the shadows of the night
Though it’s wrong all along it keeps goin’ on
As long as you keep in outta sight

[Chorus: x3]

Chains     Patty Loveless   (A)        Writers Hal Bynum / Bud Reneau)

Bought a ticket to Seattle but I can’t get to the plane
Every time I leave you I keep running out of chain
I hunger for your love it never gives me any slack
But if I ever break away, I’m never coming back to these

Chains, chains, shackles and chains
No matter what it takes some day I’m gonna’ break these
Chains, chains, shackles and chains
These love taking, heart breaking, cold, hard, lonely making chains

You never try to hold me ’till you see me walking out
I guess you’d rather be with me than ever be without
You call me back and kiss me and my heart begins to sink
When I know that all you’re doing’s taking up another link in these

Chains, chains, shackles and chains
No matter what it takes some day I’m gonna break these
Chains, chains, shackles and chains
These love taking, heart breaking, cold, hard, lonely making chains

Love was never meant to be a one-way street
I was never meant to be falling at your feet
You got me where you want me and I don’t know what to do
You don’t belong to me but I belong to you in these

Chains, chains, shackles and chains
No matter what it takes some day I’m gonna break these
Chains, chains, shackles and chains
These love taking, heart breaking, cold, hard, lonely making chains

Simon & Garfunkel – The Only Living Boy in New York (Key B7)


Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know your part’ll go fine.
Fly down to Mexico.
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da and here I am,
The only living boy in New York.

I get the news I need on the weather report.
I can gather all the news I need on the weather
report.
Hey, I’ve got nothing to do today but smile.
Da-n-da-da-n-da-da-n-da-da here I am
The only living boy in New York

Half of the time we’re gone but we don’t know where,
And we don’t know here.

Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know you’ve been eager to fly now.
Hey let your honesty shine, shine, shine
Da-n-da-da-n-da-da-n-da-da
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in New York,
The only living boy in New York.

Bob Dylan:  Sittin’ On Top Of The World

Key of  (Drop Down D)

Was in the summer
One early fall
Just tryin’ to find my
Little all and all
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.

Was in the spring
One summer’s day
Just when she left me
She gone to stay
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.

Now don’t come runnin’
Holdin’ up your hand
Can get me a woman
Quick as you can get a man
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.

Happen for days
Didn’t know your name
Oh, why should I worry
Or crave you in vain ?
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.
Went to the station
Down in the yard
Gonna get me a freight train
Work’s done got hard
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.

The lonesome days
They have gone by
Why should I beg you ?
You said goodbye
Now she’s gone
An’ I don’t worry
Lord, I’m sittin’ on top of the world.

Footlights” Merle Haggard Key of C

I live a kind of life
Most men only dream of
I make my living writing songs
And singin’ them

I’m a whole lot older now
And there’s still no place to go when it’s over
So I’ll hide my age and make the stage
And try to kick the footlights out again

I throw my old guitar across the stage
And watch my bassman takes the ball
And the crowd goes nearly wild
To see my guitar nearly fall

After twenty years of pickin’
We’re still alive and kickin’ down the wall
Tonight we’ll kick the footlights out
Walk away without a curtain call

Tonight we’ll kick the footlights out again
And try to hide the mood we’re really in
Might not put on our old instamatic grins
Tonight we’ll kick the footlights out again, kick ‘em out

I live a kind of life
Most men only dream of
And I make my living writing songs
And singin’ them

I had a Beautiful Time Lyrics Merle haggard Key of “A”

We met down town in the bar room
Both of us needing a friend
And you brought me home to your doorstep
It was there you invited me in

We spent the wee hours dancing
To your favourite home stereo sounds
We talked about what we been needin’
Discussin’ our ups and our downs

And I’ve had a beautiful time
Holding your heart next to mine
I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
And I’ve had a beautiful time

If I seem a wee bit uneasy
You really sized me up right
There’s somebody home still up waiting
She probably been waiting up all night

I can’t say I found any answers
But you listen while I ride alone
And you little beautiful lady
And you kept me from being alone

And I’ve had a beautiful time
Holding your body next to mine
I poured out the feelings while you poured the wine
And I’ve had a beautiful time

I’ve had a beautiful time
Holding your heart next to mine
We poured out the feelings and then we poured the wine
And I’ve had a beautiful time

You poured out the feelings while we poured the wine
And I’ve had a beautiful time

2 More Bottles Of Wine by Emmy Lou Harris Key of A


We came out west together with a common desire
The fever we had might-a set the west coast on fire
Two months later got a troublin’ mind
‘Cause my baby moved out and left me behind
But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight and I got two more bottles of wine

Well, the way he left sure turned my head around
Seemed like over night he just up and put me down
Ain’t gonna let it bother me today
‘Cause I’ve been workin’ and I’m too tired anyway
But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight and I got two more bottles of wine

Well, I’m sixteen hundred miles from the people I know
I’ve been doin’ all I can but opportunity sure comes slow
Thought I’d be big star by today
But I’ve been sweepin’ out a warehouse in West L.A.
But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight and I got two more bottles of wine
Yes, it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight and I got two more bottles of wine

Fallin and Flyin “Crazy Heart” Jeff Bridges (Key of A)

I was goin’ where I shouldn’t go
seein’ who I shouldn’t see
doin’ what I shouldn’t do
and bein’ who I shouldn’t be

a little voice told me it’s all wrong
another voice told me it’s alright
I used to think I was strong
but lately I just lost the fight

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

I got tired of bein’ good
started missing that old feeling free
stop actin’ like I thought I should
and went on back to bein’ me

I never meant to hurt no one
I just had to have my way
if there is such a thing as too much fun
this must be the price you pay

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

you never see it comin’ till it’s gone
it all happens for a reason
even when it’s wrong
especially when it’s wrong

funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while
funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’
for a little while

I was goin’ where I shouldn’t go
seein’ who I shouldn’t see
doin’ what I shouldn’t do
and bein’ who I shouldn’t be

Blame It on Your Heart  ~ Patty Loveless (D)

You’ve got a thing or two to learn about me baby
‘Cause I ain’t taking it no more and I don’t mean maybe
You don’t know right from wrong
Well the love we had is gone
So blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Well all I wanted was to be your one and only
And all I ever got from you was being lonely
Now that dream is laid to rest
‘Cause you have failed the test
So blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you’re never gonna find another love like mine
Someone’s gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she’ll do you, it ain’t funny
You need some sympathy
But don’t be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you’re never gonna find another love like mine
Someone’s gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she’ll do you, it ain’t funny
You need some sympathy
But don’t be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Ya blame it on your lying, cheating, cold dead beating, two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

“Layla” Unplugged    Eric Clapton  (Key of Dm)

What’ll you do when you get lonely
And nobody’s waiting by your side?
You’ve been running and hiding much too long.
You know it’s just your foolish pride.

[Chorus:]
Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

[Chorus]

Let’s make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don’t say we’ll never find a way
And tell me all my love’s in vain.

[Chorus: x2]

Suzanne : Cohen, Leonard; Key of “A”

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know, she’s half crazy

It’s why you want to be there
She feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China

And just when you mean to tell her
You have no love to give her
She gets you on her wave length
And she lets the river answer
You’ve always been her lover

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
and you know she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind

Jesus was a sailor
When He walked upon the water
And He spent a long time watching
From His lonely wooden tower

And when He knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him
He said,”All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them”

But He, Himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
You want to travel blind
And you know he will find you
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind

Suzanne takes your hand now
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey
On our, our lady of the harbour
She shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
You want to travel blind
And you know she’ll find you
For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind

“The Last Resort”         EAGLES  Key of E

She came from Providence,
the one in Rhode Island
Where the old world shadows hang
heavy in the air
She packed her hopes and dreams
like a refugee
Just as her father came across the sea

She heard about a place people were smilin’
They spoke about the red man’s way,
and how they loved the land
And they came from everywhere
to the Great Divide
Seeking a place to stand
or a place to hide

Down in the crowded bars,
out for a good time,
Can’t wait to tell you all,
what it’s like up there
And they called it paradise
I don’t know why
Somebody laid the mountains low
while the town got high

Then the chilly winds blew down
Across the desert
through the canyons of the coast, to
the Malibu
Where the pretty people play,
hungry for power
to light their neon way
and give them things to do

Some rich men came and raped the land,
Nobody caught ‘em
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
people bought ‘em
And they called it paradise
The place to be
They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

You can leave it all behind
and sail to Lahaina
just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
They even brought a neon sign: “Jesus is coming”
Brought the white man’s burden down
Brought the white man’s reign

Who will provide the grand design?
What is yours and what is mine?
‘Cause there is no more new frontier
We have got to make it here

We satisfy our endless needs and
justify our bloody deeds,
in the name of destiny and the name
of God

And you can see them there,
On Sunday morning
They stand up and sing about
what it’s like up there
They call it paradise
I don’t know why
You call some place paradise,
kiss it goodbye

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands Bob Dylan Key Of D

With your mercury mouth in the missionary times,
And your eyes like smoke and your prayers like rhymes,
And your silver cross, and your voice like chimes,
Oh, who among them do they think could bury you?
With your pockets well protected at last,
And your streetcar visions which you place on the grass,
And your flesh like silk, and your face like glass,
Who among them do they think could carry you?
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

With your sheets like metal and your belt like lace,
And your deck of cards missing the jack and the ace,
And your basement clothes and your hollow face,
Who among them can think he could outguess you?
With your silhouette when the sunlight dims
Into your eyes where the moonlight swims,
And your match-book songs and your gypsy hymns,
Who among them would try to impress you?
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

The kings of tyrus with their convict list
Are waiting in line for their geranium kiss,
And you wouldn’t know it would happen like this,
But who among them really wants just to kiss you?
With your childhood flames on your midnight rug,
And your Spanish manners and your mothers drugs,
And your cowboy mouth and your curfew plugs,
Who among them do you think could resist you?
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

Oh, the farmers and the businessmen, they all did decide
To show you the dead angels that they used to hide.
But why did they pick you to sympathize with their side?
Oh, how could they ever mistake you?
They wished you’d accepted the blame for the farm,
But with the sea at your feet and the phony false alarm,
And with the child of a hoodlum wrapped up in your arms,
How could they ever, ever persuade you?
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

With your sheet-metal memory of cannery row,
And your magazine-husband who one day just had to go,
And your gentleness now, which you just cant help but show,
Who among them do you think would employ you?
Now you stand with your thief, youre on his parole
With your holy medallion which your fingertips fold,
And your saintlike face and your ghostlike soul,
Oh, who among them do you think could destroy you
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

The famous Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan), wrote this piece for his ex-wife Sarah….

Misery and Gin Performed by Merle Haggard Key of E


Memories and drinks don’t mix too well.
And jukebox records don’t play those wedding bells.
Starin’ at the world through the bottom of a glass,All I see is a man who’s fading fast.

Tonight I need that woman again.
What I’d give for my baby to just walk in.
Sit down beside me and say it’s al-right.
Take me home and make sweet love to me tonight.Chorus
But here I am again, mixin’ misery and gin.

Sittin’ with all my friends and talkin’ to myself.
I look like I’m havin’ a good time but any fool can tell,
That this Honkytonk Heaven really makes ya’ feel like hell.

I light a lonely womans cigarette,
We both start talkin’ ’bout what we want to forget.
Her life story and mine are the same
We both lost someone and only have ourselves to blame.
Chorus

It Don’t Matter Any more Buddy Holly Key of E

There you go, and baby, here am I
Well, you left me here so I could sit and cry
Well, golly gee, what have you done to me?
Well, I guess it doesn’t matter anymore

Do you remember, baby, last September
How you held me tight each and every night?
Well, whoopsie daisy, how you drove me crazy
But I guess it doesn’t matter anymore

There’s no use in me a-cryin’
I’ve done everything and now I’m sick of tryin’
I’ve thrown away my nights
And wasted all my days over you

Well, you go your way and I’ll go mine
Now and forever till the end of time
I’ll find somebody new, and baby, we’ll say we’re through
And you won’t matter anymore

There’s no use in me a-cryin’
I’ve done everything and now I’m sick of tryin’
I’ve thrown away my nights
And wasted all my days over you

Well, you go your way and I’ll go mine
Now and forever till the end of time
I’ll find somebody new, and baby, we’ll say we’re through
And you won’t matter anymore
You won’t matter anymore

Merle Haggard “What Am I Gonna Do With The Rest Of My Life” Key of A A/Bm/E/A

I can make it for a day or two without you
And maybe I can make it through the night
I can smoke I can drink and probably be alright until morning
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life
I’ve got things that I can do I’ve got places I can go to this evening
I’ve got whiskey I can drink that’ll help me not to think about you leaving
Yes I can smoke and I can drink probably be alright till morning
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life

I’ve got things that I can do…
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life

CROSBY, STILLS & NASH
“Teach Your Children” (Key of Drop down D)

You, who are on the road must have a code that you can live by.
And so become yourself because the past is just a good bye.
Teach your children well, their father’s hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams, the one they fix, the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.
And you, of the tender years can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth, they seek the truth before they can die.
Teach your parents well, their children’s hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams, the one they fix,the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Helpless Neil Young (Key of D)


There is a town in North Ontario
Dream comfort mem’ry to spare
And in my mind I still need a place to go
All my changes were there

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes    Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Babe, can you hear me now?
The chains are locked and tied across the door
Baby, sing with me somehow

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes

Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

Happened just the other day
It’s gettin’ kind of long
I could’ve said it was in my way

But I didn’t and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it, yeah, to someone, yeah

Well, must be because I had the flu this Christmas
Oh, yeah and I’m not feeling up to par
Oh, I tell you baby this increases my paranoia
Yeah, like looking in my mirror and seeing a police car

Well, well, I’m not, I’m not giving in an inch to fear
Well, you know I’ve promised myself this year
Well, I feel oh, like I owe it, I owe, I owe it to someone
Oh, Like I owe it to someone

Oh, yes when I get myself together
Yeah, you can find me in that sunny southern weather, yeah

I’m goin’ to find a space inside a laugh, yes
Separate the wheat from some chaff
Oh, and I feel
Like I owe it, yeah, to someone

LEONARD COHEN “Sisters Of Mercy” Key of Drop down D


Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can’t go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who’ve been travelling so long.

Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control.
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.
Well I’ve been where you’re hanging, I think I can see how you’re pinned:
When you’re not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you’ve sinned.

Well they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem.
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
they will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.

When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon.
Don’t turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon.
And you won’t make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night:
We weren’t lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,
We weren’t lovers like that and besides it would still be all right.

“Home”   SHERYL CROW  (Key of G)

I woke up this morning
Now I understand
What it means to give your life
To just one man
Afraid of feeling nothing
No bees or butterflies
My head is full of voices
And my house is full of lies[chorus]
This is home, home
And this is home, home
This is homeI found your standing there
When I was seventeen
Now I’m thirty-two
And I can’t remember what I’d seen in you
I made a promise
Said it everyday
Now I’m reading romance novels
And I’m dreaming of yesterday[Chorus]I’d like to see the Riviera
And slowdance underneath the stars
I’d like to watch the sun come up
In a stranger’s arms[Chorus]I’m going crazy
A little everyday
And everything I wanted
Is now driving me away
I woke this morning
To the sound of breaking hearts
Mine is full of questions
And it’s tearing yours apart…

ALABAMA “Lady Down On Love” B flat modulate to C


It’s her first night on the town since she was just eighteen
A lady down on love and out of hope and dreams
The ties that once bound her now are broke away
And she’s like a baby, just learning how to play.

She never thought that love could ever end so soon
Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon
When he asked her to marry and she gladly said okay
And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday.

Now, she’s a lady down on love
She needs somebody to gently pick her up
She’s got her freedom, but she’d rather be bound
To a man who would love her and never let her down.

(modulate to c)

Well, I know a lady that’s down on her love
‘Cause I used to hold her and have that special touch
But work took me a way from home late at nights
And I wasn’t there when she turned out the lights
Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust
And she just couldn’t live with a man she couldn’t trust.

Now, she’s a lady down on love
She needs somebody to gently pick her up
She’s got her freedom, but she’d rather be bound
To a man who would love her and never let her down
Now she’s a lady down on love…

Beatles “Real Love” Key of D


All my little plans and schemes,
lost like some forgotten dreams,
seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for you.

Just like little girls and boys,
playing with their little toys.
Seems like all they really were doing
was waiting for love.

Don’t need to be alone,
no need to be alone.
It’s real love, it’s real.
Yes it’s real love, it’s real.

From this moment on I know
exactly where my life will go.
Seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for love.

Don’t need to be afraid,
no need to be afraid.
It’s real love, it’s real.
Yes it’s real love, it’s real.

Thought I’d been in love before,
but in my heart, I wanted more.
Seems like all I really was doing
was waiting for you.

Don’t need to be alone,
don’t need to be alone.
It’s real love, it’s real.
It’s real love, it’s real.
Yes it’s real love, it’s real.
It’s real love, it’s real.
Yes it’s real love, it’s real.
It’s real love, it’s real.
Yes it’s real love, it’s real.
It’s real love, it’s real.

Elvis Presley – You Don`t Have To Say You Love Me

(Key of B-flat/E-fla9/A-flatmaj7/D-flatmaj7/Gm/C)

When I said, I needed you
You said you would always stay
It wasn`t me who changed, but you
And know you`ve gone away
Don`t you know that now you`re gone
And I`m left her on my own
Then I have to follow you
And beg you to come home
You don`t have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don`t have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me
I can`t help I love you
But believe me, I`ll never tie you down
Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that`s left is loneliness
There`s nothing left to feel

THE SILVER TOUNGED DEVIL AND I – Kris Kristoferson Key of A
(I love the clever lyrics on this song that is “Owed to John Prine)


I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern
To buy me a bottle of beer
I sat myself down by a tender young maiden
Who’s eyes were as dark as her hair

And while I was searching from bottle to bottle
For something un-foolish to say
That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows
And smilingly stole her away

chorus: I said girl don’t you know he’s a devil
He’s everything that I ain’t
Hiding intentions of evil under the smile of a saint
All he’s good for is getting in trouble
And slipping his share of the blame
And some people swear he’s my double
And some even say we’re the same
But the silver-tongued devil’s got nothing to lose
And I’ll only live ’till I die
We take our own chances and pay our own dues
The silver tongued devil and I

Like all the young ladies who’ve laid down beside him
She knew in her heart that he lied
But nothing that I could have said could have saved her
No matter how hard that I tried
‘Cause she’ll offer her soul up to darkness and danger
Of a world that she’s never known
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
Who’ll love her and leave her alone

chorus

Promised Land Elvis Presley Key of A

(Words & music by Chuck Berry)
I left my home in Norfolk Virginia
California on my mind
I straddled that Greyhound
And rode into Raleigh
And on across Caroline

We had motor trouble that turned into a struggle
Halfway across Alabam’
And that hound broke down and left us all stranded
In downtown Birmingham

Right away I brought me a through train ticket
Ridin’ across Mississippi clean
And I was on that midnight flyer out of Birmingham
Smoking into New Orleans

Somebody help me get out of Louisiana
Just to help me get to Houston Town
There are people there who care a little about me
And they won’t let the poor boy down

Sure as she bore me, she bought me a silk suit
Put luggage in my hand
And I woke up high over Alburquerque
On a jet to the promised land

Working on a T-bone steak a la carte
Flying over to the golden state
Ah when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes
He would set us at the terminal gate

Swing low chariot come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and cool your wings
And let me make it to the telephone

Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
Tidewater four ten o nine
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land calling
And the poor boy is on the line

In My Own Mind  Lyle Lovett   (Key of G)

I get up in the morning
Drink a cup of coffee
I look out of the window
I try to get it started
I turn it all over
Plow it all under
I plant ‘em in the springtime
Pick ‘em in the summer

I live in my own mind
Ain’t nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain’t nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won’t please
Out here where I can breathe

Randy and Danny Ray
They’ll show back up any day
That’s one thing you can count on
But sometimes they’ll be long gone
I’d rather be hunting
Hooked on fishing
I read it on their t-shirts
And if you don’t believe it

I live in my own mind
Ain’t nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain’t nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won’t please
Out here where I can breathe

Hardwood floor creakin’
Bedroom door squeakin’
She’s standing in the kitchen
I thought that she’d still be sleepin’
Kiss her on the forehead
Asked her how she slept
She says, ‘honey, it’s so early
Probably shouldn’t speak yet’

I live in my own mind
Ain’t nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain’t nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won’t please
Out here where I can breathe

Artist : Kinks Song : Celluloid Heroes


Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star,
And everybody’s in movies, it doesn’t matter who
you are.
There are stars in every city,
In every house and on every street,
And if you walk down Hollywood boulevard
Their names are written in concrete!

Don’t step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the
boulevard,
She looks so weak and fragile that’s why she
tried to be so hard
But they turned her into a princess
And they sat her on a throne,
But she turned her back on stardom,
Because she wanted to be alone.

You can see all the stars as you walk down
Hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognize, some that you’ve hardly
even heard of,
People who worked and suffered and struggled for
fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in
vain.
Rudolph valentino, looks very much alive,
And he looks up ladies’ dresses as they sadly
pass him by.
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi
’cos he’s liable to turn and bite,
But stand close by Bette Davis
Because hers was such a lonely life.
If you covered him with garbage,
George sanders would still have style,
And if you stamped on mickey Rooney
He would still turn round and smile,
But please don’t tread on dearest Marilyn
’cos she’s not very tough,
She should have been made of iron or steel,
But she was only made of flesh and blood.

You can see all the stars as you walk down
hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognise, some that you’ve hardly
even heard of.
People who worked and suffered and struggled for
fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in
vain.

Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star
And everybody’s in show biz, it doesn’t matter
who you are.

And those who are successful,
Be always on your guard,
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood boulevard.

I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie
show,
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and
heroes,
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die.

You can see all the stars as you walk along
Hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognize, some that you’ve hardly
even heard of,
People who worked and suffered and struggled for
fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in
vain.

Oh celluloid heroes never feel any pain
Oh celluloid heroes never really die.

] I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie
show,
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and
heroes,
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die.

Box of Rain Grateful Dead – Key of G

 Key of G (D starts it off) D/Am/C/Em/G

Look out of any window
any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
birds are winging or
rain is falling from a heavy sky -
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
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 waiting to meet you -
What do you want me to do,
to watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised
when you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
you find by you, you can see
clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
through other eyes on other days
while going 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

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
But 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

Grateful Dead Ripple  “Ripple”  in  G

 If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?It’s a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps they’re better left unsung.
I don’t know, don’t really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then who’s to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.La dee da da da, la da da da da, da da da, da da, da da da da da
La da da da, la da da, da da, la da da da, la da, da da.

Tender Years By: Beaver Brown Band key of G

When the moon hung soft and low,
Catchin’ stardust in the light
You held me closer and closer
There was magic in the night

A sweet love song, a melody
that I still can recall
Two young hearts filled with dreams
To walk away with it all

Whoa, whoa tender years
Won’t you wash away my tears
How I wish you were here
Please don’t go, tender years

A summer love, a beach romance
Sought her kisses in the sand
Two young hearts filled with fire
Lost in never-neverland.

Whoa, whoa tender years
Won’t you wash away my tears
How I wish you were here
Please don’t go, tender years

The Pilgrem: Kris Kristoferson Key of A modulate to B

Photo taken By Eric Turnbow @ Shelton Casino 09-24-2011

See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans,
Wearin’ yesterday’s misfortunes like a smile
Once he had a future full of money, love, and dreams,
Which he spent like they was goin’ outta style
And he keeps right on a ‘changin’ for the better or the worse,
Searchin’ for a shrine he’s never found
Never knowin’ if believin’ is a blessin’ or a curse,
Or if the goin’ up was worth the comin’ down

CHORUS:
He’s a poet, he’s a picker
He’s a prophet, he’s a pusher
He’s a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he’s stoned
He’s a walkin’ contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction,
Takin’ ev’ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home.

(Modulate to B)
He has tasted good and evil in your bedrooms and your bars,
And he’s traded in tomorrow for today
Runnin’ from his devils, Lord, and reachin’ for the stars,
And losin’ all he’s loved along the way
But if this world keeps right on turnin’ for the better or the worse,
And all he ever gets is older and around
From the rockin’ of the cradle to the rollin’ of the hearse,
The goin’ up was worth the comin’ down

CHORUS:
He’s a poet, he’s a picker
He’s a prophet, he’s a pusher
He’s a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he’s stoned
He’s a walkin’ contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction,
Takin’ ev’ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home.
There’s a lotta wrong directions on that lonely way back home.

Heaven Was A Drink Of Wine
Recorded by Merle Haggard Key of C

Photo taken By Eric Turnbow @ Shelton Casino 09-24-2011

That psychoed-out psychologist asked me about my drinking ways
Every question that he asked me all related back unto my childhood days
But if the truth was known I never took to drinking long
Long as she was mine but when she left me I went to hell
And heaven was a drink of wine

That good doctor said to look at all those ink-spots
And tell me what you see
Could I help it if they all looked like big ole broken hearts to me
All my friends and kin will tell you ole Hag ain’t the drinking kind
But when she left me I went to hell and heaven was a drink of wine

Get back get back get on back and leave me alone
Can’t you see that you can’t help a man that’s this far gone
Hey good doctor I’ve got something you can’t find in my mind
But when she left me I went to hell and heaven was a drink of wine

Hey good doctor heaven was a drink of wine

The Gulf Of Mexico Shawn Mullens Key of A

She cooks him ham and hotcakes at 5:30 in the morn
She does the dishes and irons his uniforms
And she thinks she might have loved him once but that was long ago
And the rain pours down like a holy waterfall over the Gulf of Mexico

The boardwalk’s deserted and the beach is all closed down
And the middle school punk rockers ride their skateboards through the town
And she looks back and she daydreams about things and people she’s never seen
Just to keep from being blue
And she gets home about a quarter to four
And drives her brother to the liquor store on ocean avenue

And I’m parked on the state line on this cold November day
And pretty soon I’ll be a drivin fool somewhere down this lost highway
Then I hear a voice from my soul’s core
Sayin “freedom’s just a metaphor, you got nowhere to go”
And the rain pours down like a holy waterfall over the Gulf of Mexico

House at Poo Corner: Kenny Loggins Key of E

Christopher Robin and I walked along
Under branches lit up by the moon
And posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
As our days disappeared all too soon
But I’ve wandered much further today than I should
And I can’t seem to find my way back to the wood

So help me if you can, I’ve got to get
Back to the house at Pooh Corner by one
You’d be surprised there’s so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
And Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

Winnie The Pooh doesn’t know what to do
Got a honey jar stuck on his nose
When he came to me asking help and advise
And from here no one knows where he goes
So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he’s there
How to loosen the jar from the nose of a bear

So help me if you can, I’ve got to get
Back to the house at Pooh Corner by one
You’d be surprised there’s so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
Oh, chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
Back to the ways of Christopher Robin

‘Cos I’m living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody’s multiplying
Till they’re walking round like flies man
So I’m no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
‘Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees

I think I’m so educated and I’m so civilized
‘Cos I’m a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don’t feel safe in this world no more
I don’t want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I’m an ape man, I’m an ape ape man
I’m an ape man I’m a King Kong man I’m ape ape man
I’m an ape man
‘Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an ape man
In man’s evolution he has created the cities and
the motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
and I’d be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
‘Cos the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man
I’m an ape, I’m an ape ape man, I’m an ape man
I’m a King Kong man, I’m a voo-doo man
I’m an ape man
I look out my window, but I can’t see the sky
‘Cos the air pollution is
fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we will be so happy in my ape man world
I’m an ape man, I’m an ape ape man, I’m an ape man

and we’ll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man

If not for you
Babe, I couldn’t even find the door
I couldn’t even see the floor

Babe, the night would see me wide awake
The day would surely have to break
It would not be new, if not for you

If not for you, my sky would fall
Rain would gather, too
Without your love I’d be nowhere at all
I’d be lost, if not for you

If not for you

He Stopped Loving Her Today: Key of A (George Jones)

He said I’ll love you ’til I die
She told him you’ll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still prayed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she’d come back again

Kept some letters by his bed
Dated 1962
He had underlined in red
Every single I love you.
I went to see him just today
Oh but I didn’t see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I’d seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they’ll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

(Spoken)

Ya’ know she came to see him one last time
Oh, we all wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind
This time he’s over her for good

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they’ll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

He said I’ll love you ’til I die
She told him you’ll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still prayed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all

This could be the time for you and me.
We could go wherever we should be.
So don’t put words between us we shouldn’t say,
And don’t be acting halfway
When you know we’re all the way.

There are times when I don’t see the light.
I don’t know if what I do is right.
But when I’m wrong, it’s never meant for you,
So don’t confuse my love with what I do.

Chorus

Blind Faith – Sea of Joy key of A

Following the shadows of the skies,
Or are they only figments of my eyes?
And I’m feeling close to when the race is run.
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Once the door swings open into space,
And I’m already waiting in disguise.
Is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Having trouble coming through,
Through this concrete blocks my view
And it’s all because of you.

Oh, is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Sea of joy.
Sea of joy.
Sailing free.
Sea of joy.

Help Me Make It Through The Night Kris Kristofferson Key of G

(Photo taken By Eric Turnbow @ Shelton Casino 09-24-2011)

Take the ribbon from my hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin soft against your skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lay down by ma side
Till the early mornin light
All I’m takin is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don’t care what’s right or wrong
N I wont try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
Lord, tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrows out of sight
And it’s sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

And it’s sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don’t want to be alone
Help me make it through the night

ELVIS PRESLEY “I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water” Key of E

I was born in Macon Georgia
They kept my daddy over in Macon jail
He told me if you keep your hands clean
You won’t hear them bloodhounds on your trail

Well I fell in with bad companions
Robbed a man, oh up in Tennessee
They caught me way up in Nashville
They locked me up and threw away the key

I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, but they didn’t come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Well I asked the judge now when’s my time up
He said son, oh you know we won’t forget
If you try just to keep your hands clean
We might just make a good man of you yet

Oh I couldn’t wait to get my time up
I broke out, broke out of Nashville jail
I just crossed the state-line of Georgia
Well I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail

I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, but they didn’t come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Autumn Leaves MERCER, JOHNNY Key of Am

The falling leaves
Drift by the window
The autumn leaves
Of red and gold
I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold
Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I’ll hear
Old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall
Night Life Key of D

When that ev’nin’ sun goes down
Yeah, you’ll find me hangin’ around
Because the night life
It ain’t no good life but it’s my life

Yeah, yeah, yeah listen to the blues
Listen to what they’re sayin’
Oh, please listen to the blues
Listen to the blues they’re playin’

Ah, ah, all of the people just like you and me
They’re all dreamin’ about their old used to be
Because the night life
It ain’t no good life but it’s my life

They tell me life’s an empty scene
An avenue of broken dreams
Because the night life
It ain’t no good life but it’s my life

Further on up the road, baby, just you wait and see.

You gotta reap just what you sow; that old saying is true.

Harvest Moon lyrics Neil Young Key of Drop Down D

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

Mull of Kintyre Paul McCartney Key of G

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Far have I travelled and much have I seen
Darkest of mountains with valleys of green
Past painted deserts the sun sets on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Still take me back where my memories remain
Flickering embers go higher and higher
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Until Its Time For You To Go Elvis Lyric Key of D

You’re not a dream,
You’re not an angel,
You’re a woman,
I’m not a king,
I’m just a man,
Take my hand,
We’ll make a space,
In this life that we planned,
And here we’ll stay,
Until it’s time for you to go.

Yes, we’re diff’rent, worlds apart,
We’re not the same,
We laughed and played,
At the start, like in a game,
You could have stayed,
Outside my heart,
But in you came,
And here you’ll stay,
Until it’s time for you to go.

Don’t ask why, Don’t ask how,
Don’t ask forever, love me, love me,
Love me, love me now

This love of mine,
Had no beginning,
It has no end,
I was an oak,
Now I’m a willow,
Now I can bend,
And tho’ I’ll never,
In my life see you again,
And still I’ll stay,
Until it’s time for you to go.

Don’t ask why, Don’t ask how,
Don’t ask forever, love me, love me,
Love me, love me now.

This love of mine, had no beginning,
It has no end,
I was an oak, now I’m a willow,
And I can bend,
And thou I’ll never,
In my life see you again,
Here I’ll stay,
Until it’s time for you to go,
Yes I’ll stay,
Until it’s time for you to go

It’s Over ELVIS Key of C (For M.J.G.)

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There’d be no coming day
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over

When you walk away from me
There is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes against the sun
That rises over the land
I watch you walk away
Somehow I have to let you go
Cause it’s over

If you knew just how I really feel
You might return and yet
There are so many times
That people have to love and then forget
Oh there might have been a way somehow
I have to force myself to say
It’s over

So I turn my back,
Turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence
Trying not to think at all
I set my feet before me
Walk the silent street before me
Now it’s over

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make you stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There’d be no coming day
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over      It’s over

Separate Ways ELVIS Key of E (For M.J.G.)

I see a change is coming to our lives
Its not the same as it used to be
And its not too late to realise our mistake
Were just not right for each other

Love has slipped away left us only friends
We almost seem like strangers
All thats left between us are the memories we shared
Of times we thought we cared for each other

Theres nothing left to do but go our separate ways
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
And maybe someday, somewhere along the way
Another love will find us

Some day when shes older, maybe she will understand
Why her mom and dad are not together
The tears that she will cry when I have to say goodbye
Will tear at my heart forever

Theres nothing left to do but go our separate ways
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
And maybe someday, somewhere along the way
Another love will find us

JJ Cale » Magnolia  Key of G Maj7 (GMaj/Dma7/BMin.A/GMaj7)

Whippoorwill’s singing
Soft summer breeze
Makes me think of my baby
I left down in New Orleans
I left down in New Orleans
Magnolia, you sweet thing
You’re driving me mad
Got to get back to you, babe
You’re the best I ever had
You’re the best I ever had
You whisper “Good morning”
So gently in my ear
I’m coming home to you, babe
I’ll soon be there
I’ll soon be there
Magnolia, you sweet thing
You’re driving me mad
Got to get back to you, babe
You’re the best I ever had
You’re the best I ever had
You’re the best I ever had
You’re the best I ever had
I love the line about Jesus looking like Elvis! Could it be true? Cool Lyric!

“Atlantis” Lyrics By Donovan Key of “C”

The continent of Atlantis was an island
Which lay before the great flood
In the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean.
So great an area of land, that from her western shores
Those beautiful sailors journeyed to the South
And the North Americas with ease
In their ships with painted sails.
To the east, Africa was a neighbor,
Across a short strait of sea miles.

The great Egyptian age is but a remnant
Of the Atlantian culture.
The antediluvian kings colonized the world;
All the Gods who play in the mythological dramas
In all legends from all lands were from fair Atlantis.

Knowing her fate, Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the Earth.
On board were the Twelve:
The poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist, the magician,
And the other so-called Gods of our legends,
Though Gods they were.
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind,
Let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new . . .
Hail Atlantis!

Way down below the ocean, where I wanna be, she may be . . .
Way down below the ocean, where I wanna be, she may be . . .

My antediluvian baby, oh yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah,
I want to see you some day.
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah,
My antediluvian baby.
My antediluvian baby, I love you, girl;
Girl, I want to see you some day.
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah,
I want to see you some day, oh,
My antediluvian baby.
My antediluvian baby, I want to see you;
My antediluvian baby—gotta tell me where she gone—
I want to see you some day,
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, oh yeah;
Oh glub glub, down down, yeah . . .
Check out all the nifty references in this track! Cool lyrics!

“Hallelujah” LEONARD COHEN key of C

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Marc Cohn – Walking In Memphis Key of F (F/G/C/Am/)

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.C. Handy — won’t you look down over me
Yeah I got a first class ticket
But I’m as blue as a boy can be

Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis
On Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered ’round his tomb
But there’s a pretty little thing
Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

(Chorus)

They’ve got catfish on the table
They’ve got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven’t got a prayer
But boy you’ve got a prayer in Memphis

Now Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would –
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
And she said –
“Tell me are you a Christian child?”
And I said “Ma’am I am tonight”

(Chorus)

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain

JULIA THE BEATLES Key of D

Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia

Julia, Julia, oceanchild, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering,
In the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Hum hum hum…calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia

BOBBY GOLDSBORO Honey Key of C Modulate to D

See the tree, how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Came runnin’ in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin’ late
‘Cause I would know
That she’d been sittin’ there and cryin’
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I’d be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin’ needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life’s an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Beatles For No One Key of C

You day breaks, your mind aches
You find that all her words
of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you
She wakes up, she makes up
She takes her time and doesn’t
feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you

And in her eyes, you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You want her, you need her
And yet you don’t believe her
When she says her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes, you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You stay home, she goes out
She says that long ago she knew someone
but now he’s gone
She doesn’t need him
your day breaks, your mind aches
There will be times when all the things
she said will fill your head
You won’t forget her

And in her eyes, you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

“Rockstar” Nickelback    Key Of G

      

I’m through with standing in line
To clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
And I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
Quite the way I want it to be

(Tell me what you want)

I want a brand new house
On an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
For ten plus me

(So what you need?)

I’ll need a credit card that’s got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet

(Been there, done that)

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

(So how you gonna do it?)

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name

[Chorus:]
‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ’cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free
(I’ll have the quesadilla, on the house)
I’m gonna dress my ass
With the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
Blow my money for me
(So how you gonna do it?)
I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name

[Chorus]

And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a drug dealer on speed dial

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I’m gonna sing those songs
That offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills from a pez dispenser

I’ll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don’t get ‘em wrong

[Chorus]

And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a drug dealer on speed dial

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

“Highway 61 Revisited”  (BOB DYLAN LYRICS are so Brilliant!)

Oh God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No.” Abe say, “What ?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin’ you better run”
Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ done ?”
God says. “Out on Highway 61″.

Well Georgia Sam he had a bloody nose
Welfare Department they wouldn’t give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard where can I go
Howard said there’s only one place I know
Sam said tell me quick man I got to run
Ol’ Howard just pointed with his gun
And said that way down on Highway 61.

Well Mack the finger said to Louie the King
I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don’t ring
Do you know where I can get ride of these things
And Louie the King said let me think for a minute son
And he said yes I think it can be easily done
Just take everything down to Highway 61.

Now the fift daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren’t right
My complexion she said is much too white
He said come here and step into the light he says hmmm you’re right
Let me tell second mother this has been done
But the second mother was with the seventh son
And they were both out on Highway 61.

Now the rowin’ gambler he was very bored
He was tryin’ to create a next world war
He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
He said I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done
We’ll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61.

“Ballad Of A Thin Man” Dylan is poetic as ever!

You walk into the room
With your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked
And you say, “Who is that man ?”
You try so hard
But you don’t understand
Just what you’ll say
When you get home.

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You raise up your head
And you ask, “Is this where it is ?”
And somebody points to you and says
“It’s his”
And you says, “What’s mine ?”
And somebody else says, “Where what is ?”
And you say, “Oh my God
Am I here all alone ?”

But something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You hand in your ticket
And you go watch the geek
Who immediately walks up to you
When he hears you speak
And says, “How does it feel
To be such a freak ?”
And you say, “Impossible”
As he hands you a bone.

And something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You have many contacts
Among the lumberjacks
To get you facts
When someone attacks your imagination
But nobody has any respect
Anyway they already expect you
To all give a check
To tax-deductible charity organizations.
You’ve been with the professors
And they’ve all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks
You’ve been through all of
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
You’re very well read
It’s well known.

But something is happening here
And you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
And then he kneels
He crosses himself
And then he clicks his high heels
And without further notice
He asks you how it feels
And he says, “Here is your throat back
Thanks for the loan”.

And you know something is happening
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Now you see this one-eyed midget
Shouting the word “NOW”
And you say, “For what reason ?”
And he says, “How ?”
And you say, “What does this mean ?”
And he screams back, “You’re a cow
Give me some milk
Or else go home”.

Because something is happening
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Well, you walk into the room
Like a camel and then you frown
You put your eyes in your pocket
And your nose on the ground
There ought to be a law
Against you comin’ around
You should be made
To wear earphones.

Does something is happening
And you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Sopranos Theme Song Key of F

You woke up this morning. Got yourself a gun.
Mama always said you’d be the Chosen One.

She said: You’re one in a million you’ve got to burn to shine,
But you were born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning all the love has gone,
Your Papa never told you about right and wrong.

But you’re looking good, baby, I believe you’re feeling fine, (shame about it),
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning the world turned upside down,
Thing’s ain’t been the same since the Blues walked into town.

But you’re one in a million you’ve got that shotgun shine.
Born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes.

When you woke up this morning, when you woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning, you got yourself a gun.
One After 909 Beatles

My baby says she’s traveling on the one after 909
I said move over honey, I’m traveling on that line
I said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby, don’t be cold as ice, she said she’s
traveling on the one after 909

Well I begged her not to go and I begged her on my
bended knees
I said you’re only fooling around, you’re only fooling
around with me
I said move over once, move over twice, come on baby
don’t be cold as ice
She said she’s traveling on the one after 909

Pick up my bag, run to the station, rail man says,
you’ve got the wrong location, yeah

Pick up my bags, run right home, then I find, you got
the number wrong

She said she’s traveling on the one after 909
Said move over honey I’m traveling on that line
Said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby, don’t be cold as ice, she said she’s
traveling on the one after 909

Well, my baby said she’s traveling on the one after 909
Said move over honey, I’m traveling on that line
Said move over once, move over twice
Come on baby, don’t be cold as ice, she said she’s
traveling on the one after 90
Said I’m traveling on the one after 90, Said I’m
traveling on the one after 909

Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line  WAYLON Key of E

Everybody knows you’ve been steppin’ on my toes
And I’m gettin’ pretty tired of it
You keep a steppin’ out of line
You’re messin’ with my mind
If you had any sense you’d quit

Bridge:
‘Cause ever since you were a little bitty teeny girl
You said I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinkin’ then you’ll find
You got the only daddy that’ll walk the line

I keep a workin’ every day all you want to is play
I’m tired of stayin’ out all night
I’m comin’ unglued
From your funny little moods
Now Honey baby that ain’t right

Gonna hear you start a squawkin’
And beggin’ me to come back home

You got the only daddy that’ll walk the line

I’M ON FIRE Bruce Springsteen  (Key of E)


Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go away and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
I’m on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
I’m on fire

Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife baby
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
and a freight train running through the
middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I’m on fire

Dave Dudley Six Day on the Road (Key of G)

Well, I pulled out of Pittsburgh,
Rollin’ down the Eastern Seaboard.
I’ve got my diesel wound up,
And she’s running like never before.
There’s a speed zone ahead, all right,
I don’t see a cop in sight.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.

I got ten forward gears,
And a Georgia overdrive.
I’m taking little white pills,
And my eyes are open wide.
I just passed a ‘Jimmy’ and a ‘White’:
I’ve been passin’ everything in sight.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.

Well, it seems like a month,
Since I kissed my baby good-bye.
I could have a lot of women,
But I’m not like some other guys.
I could find one to hold me tight,
But I could never believe that it’s right.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.

I.C.C. is checking on down the line.
I’m a little overweight and my log’s three days
behind.
But nothing bothers me tonight.
I can dodge all the scales all right,
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.

Well my rig’s a little old,
But that don’t mean she’s slow.
There’s a flame from her stack,
And the smoke’s rolling black as coal.
My hometown’s coming in sight,
If you think I’m happy your right.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.
Six days on the road and I’m gonna make it home
tonight.

Seminole Wind John Anderson (Key of Em)

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend,
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Instrumental close.

LIVE LIKE YOU WERE DYING (Tim McGraw) Key of G

He said I was in my early forties,
with a lot of life before me
And one moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days, looking at the x-rays
Talking bout’ the options and talking bout’ sweet
times.
I asked him when it sank in,
that this might really be the real end
How’s it hit ‘cha when you get that kind of news?
Man what did ya do?
He said

I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man
Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denyin’
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’

He said I was finally the husband,
that most the time I wasn’t
And I became a friend, a friend would like to have
And all of a sudden goin’ fishin,
wasn’t such an imposition
And I went three times that year I lost my dad
Well I finally read the good book,
and I took a good long hard look
At what I’d do if I could do it all again
And then
Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Like tomorrow was the end
And ya got eternity to think about what to do with it
What should you do with it
What can I do with it
What would I do with it

Skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And man I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flyin’
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’

To live like you were dyin’ (4x)

Bear Necessities Dysney Tune 1967 Key of

Look for the, Bear Necessities
The simple bear Necessities,
Forget about your worries and your strife.
I mean the, Bear Necessities
Oh, Mother Nature’s recipes that bring the Bear Necessities to life.

Where-ever I wander, where-ever I rome,
I couldn’t be fonder, of my big home.
The bees are buzzin’ in the trees
To make some honey just for me.
When you look under the rocks and plants,
Take a glance at the fancy ants
And maybe try a few!
The Bear Necessities of life will come to you!

Look for the Bear Necessities,
The simple Bear Necessities,
Forget about your worries and your strife!
I mean the Bear Necessities,
It’s why a bear can rest-at-ease
With just the Bear Necessities of life!

Now when you pick a raw paw, or prickly pear.
And you pick a raw paw, next time beware.
Don’t pick the prickly pear by paw
When you try to pick, try to use the claw.
But you don’t need to use the claw
When you pick-a-pear from the big paw paw.
Have I given you a clue?

The Bear Necessities of life will come to you
(They’ll come to me)
They’ll come to you.

Instrumental break.

The Bear Necessities of life will come to you

And don’t spend your time lookin’ around
For something you want that can’t be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin’ about it
I’ll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you

The Bare Necessities (Reprise)

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
With just the bare necessities of life

Biloxi By Jimmy Buffett  (Key of G)

Down around Biloxi
Pretty girls are dancing in the sea
They all look like sisters in the ocean
Boy will fill his pale with salty water
And the storms will blow from off towards New Orleans

The Sun shines on Biloxi
The air is filled with vapors from the sea
The boy will dig a pool beside the ocean
He sees creatures from his dreams underwater
And the Sun will set from off towards New Orleans

Stars can see Biloxi
Stars can find their faces in the sea
We are walking down beside the ocean
We are splashing naked in the water
And the sky is red from off towards New Orleans

Down around Biloxi
Pretty girls are swimming in the sea
They all look like sisters in the ocean
Boy will fill his pale with salty water
And the storms will blow from off towards New Orleans

“Kiss From A Rose” Seal Key of E (E/Cmaj7/D)

There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that’s the high and not the pill.
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh,
The more I get of you,
The stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray.
There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby?
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray,
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
I’ve been kissed by a rose
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
…And if I should fall along the way
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the gray.
There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby.
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,

Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray.
Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom

Now that your rose is in bloom,

Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy : Buck Owens (Key of E)

Santa looked like daddy,
Or daddy looked like him.
It’s not the way I had him pictured,
Santa was a’ much too thin.
He didn’t come down the chimney,
So momma must have let him in.
Santa looked a lot like daddy
Or daddy looked a lot like him.

Well, they thought I was fast a’ sleepin’,
They thought that I was tucked in bed.
They never thought I’d come a’ peepin’,
Or that I’d hear what was said.
Santa put his arm around momma,
And momma put her arm around him.
So if Santa Claus ain’t daddy,
Then I’m a gonna tell on them.

[Chorus:]
Santa looked like daddy,
Or daddy looked like him.
It’s not the way I had him pictured,
Santa was a’ much too thin.
He didn’t come down the chimney,
So momma must have let him in.
Santa looked a lot like daddy
Or daddy looked a lot like him.

I never saw Dancer or Prancer,
I never heard the sleigh bells ring.
An’ I never saw the Red Nosed reindeer,
Like they show on the TV screen.
But he sure brought a lot of presents,
So Santa Claus, he must have been.
And Santa looked a lot like daddy
Or daddy looked a lot like him.

[Chorus)

Holy leaves and Christmas Trees Elvis  (Key of G)

Somewhere in, in the distant night
I hear Christmas bells
The gentle snow keeps falling down on people
Who are homeward bound
That’s the it’s always been
The circle really never ends
Christmas seems to come and go
From the place that I don’t know
Holly leaves and Christmas trees
It’s that time of year

Lights aglow and mistletoe
Don’t mean a thing when you’re not here
As I walk, walk this lonely street
The sound of snow beneath my feet
I’ll think of how it used to be
Holly leaves and Christmas trees
Use to mean so much to me

If every day was just like Christmas Elvis  (Key of G)

I hear the bells
Saying christmas is near
They ring out to tell the world
That this is the season of cheer

I hear a choir
Singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart
I’m at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air

Oh why can’t every day be like christmas
Why can’t that feeling go on endlessly
For if everyday could be just like christmas
What a wonderful world this would be

I hear a child
Telling santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me than anything

Spanish Harlem Key of C

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem,
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem.
It is a special one; It’s never seen the sun.
It only comes out when the moon is on the run
And all the stars are gleaming.
It growing in the street right up through the concrete

But soft and sweet and dreamy.

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem,
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem.
With eyes as black as coal, that look down in my soul
And start a fire there and then I lose control;
I have to beg your pardon.
I抦 gonna pick that rose and watch her as she
grows
In my garden.

It is a special one; it’s never seen the sun.
It only comes out when the moon is on the run
And all the stars are gleaming.
gonna pick that rose and watch her as She grows
In my garden.

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem;
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem.
There is a rose in Spanish Harlem;
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem…

Don Henley If Dirt  Were Dollars" Clever Lyric:  "I saw Jesus on the plane, or maybe it was Elvis, they kind of look the same")

Walkin’ like a millionaire
Smilin’ like a king
He leaned his shopping cart against the wall
He said, I been a lot of places
And I seen a lot of things
But, sonny, I seen one thing that beats ‘em all
I was flyin’ back from Lubbock
I saw Jesus on the plane
…or maybe it was Elvis
You know, they kinda look the same
Hey, look out, Junior, you’re steppin’ on my bed
I said, I don’t see nothin’
He just glared at me and said,
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
I wouldn’t worry anymore
Lookin’ like a beauty queen
Loyal as a wife
She raised her little voice and testified,
I am a good girl
I’ve been one all my life
But her virtue was as swollen as her pride
She should’ve had the Oscar
She must have been miscast
Her fifteen minutes went by so fast
I said, Now, baby, have you got no shame?
She just looked at me, uncomprehendingly
Like cows at a passing train
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
I wouldn’t worry anymore
We got the bully pulpit
And the poisoned pen
We got a press no better
Than the public men
This brave new world
Gone bad again
God’s finest little creatures
Looking brave and strong
Whistling past the graveyard
Nothing can go wrong
Quoting from the scriptures
With patriotic tears
We got the same old men
With the same old fears
Standing at attention
Wrapped in stars and stripes
They hear the phantom drummers
And the non existent pipes
These days the buck stops nowhere
No one takes the blame
But evil is still evil
In anybody’s name
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
We’d all be in the black

Guitar Man Elvis Presley   Key of A

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown I’d left Kingston,
With my guitar under my coat,
I hitch hiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
For the next three weeks I went huntin’ them nights,
Just lookin’ for a place to play,
Well, I thought my pickin’ would set ‘em on fire,
But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man.

Well, I nearly ’bout starved to death down in Memphis,
I run outta money and luck,
So I bought me a ride down to Macon, Georgia,
On a overloaded poultry truck,
I thumbed on down to Panama City,
Started pickin’ out some o’ them all night bars,
Hopin’ I could make myself a dollar,
Makin’ music on my guitar,
I got the same old story at them all my peers,
There ain’t no room around here for a guitar man
We don’t need a guitar man, son

So I slept in the hobo jungles,
Roamed a thousand miles off track,
Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama,
At a club they call Big Jack’s,
A little four-piece band was jammin’,
So I took my guitar and I sat in,
I showed ‘em what a band would sound like,
With a swingin’ little guitar man.
Show ‘em, son

If you ever take a trip down to the ocean,
Find yourself down around Mobile,
Make it on out to a club called Jack’s,
If you got a little time to kill,
Just follow that crowd of people,
You’ll wind up out on his dance floor,
Diggin’ the finest little five-piece group,
Up and down the Gulf of Mexico,
Guess who’s leadin’ that five-piece band,
Well, wouldn’t ya know, it’s that swingin’ little guitar man.

The TV-special verse:

Well, I came a long way from the carwash,
Got to where I said I’d get
Now that I’m here I know for sure
I really ain’t got there yet
Think I’ll start all over
Swing my guitar over my back
I’m gonna get myself back on the track
I’ll never, never ever look back
I’ll never be more than what I am
Wouldn’t you know
I’ m a swinging little Guitar man

PINK FLOYD  "Wish You Were Here"  (Key of E-Minor)

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,

You, Yes You, Stand Still Laddie!

When we grew up and went to school, there were certain teachers who would hurt the children anyway they could
by pouring their derision upon anything we did
exposing every weakness however carefully hidden by the kids.

But in the town it was well known that when they got home at night
their fat and psychopathic wives
Would thrash them within inches of their lives!

ooooooooooooo, oooooooo, ooooooooooo, ooooooooo, ooooooooo, ooooooooo,oooo.

We don't need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding.
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?
You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddie!"

[Sound of many TV's coming on, all on different channels]
“The Bulls are already out there”
Pink: “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrgh!”
“This Roman Meal bakery thought you’d like to know.”

I don’t need no arms around me
And I dont need no drugs to calm me.
I have seen the writing on the wall.
Don’t think I need anything at all.
No! Don’t think I’ll need anything at all.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall.

Brain Damage  Pink Floyd  ( key of D) Great Piano song!

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ’til I’m sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.
