That's It For The Other One IV: We Leave The Castle Lyrics

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.

Black-Throated Wind Lyrics

Black-Throated Wind Lyrics

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...

Casey Jones Lyrics

Casey Jones Lyrics

Driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones is ready, watch your speed. Trouble ahead, trouble behind, And you know that notion just crossed my mind. This old engine makes it on time, Leaves Central Station 'bout a quarter to nine, Hits River Junction at seventeen to, At a quarter to ten you know it's travlin' again. Driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones is ready, watch your speed. Trouble ahead, trouble behind, And you know that notion just crossed my mind. Trouble ahead, Lady in red, Take my advice you'd be better off...

Dark Hollow Lyrics

Dark Hollow Lyrics

I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine Then to be at home alone and knowin' that you're gone Would cause me to lose my mind. So blow your whistle freight train take me far on down the track I'm going away, I'm leaving today I'm goin', but I ain't comin' back. I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine Then to be in some big city, in a small room, with you upon my mind. Well I'm going away, I'm leaving today I'm goin' but I ain't comin' back.

Bertha Lyrics

Bertha Lyrics

I had a hard run Running from your window I was all night running, running, running I wonder if you care? I had a run-in Run around and run down Run around a corner Run smack into a tree I had to move Really had to move That's why if you please I am on my bended knees Bertha don't you come around here anymore Dressed myself in green I went down to the sea Try to see what's going down Maybe read between the lines Had a feeling I was falling, falling, falling Turned around to see Heard a voice calling, calling, calling You was comin after...

Let Me Sing Your Blues Away Lyrics

Let Me Sing Your Blues Away Lyrics

Gonna hop in the hack then turn on the key, Pop in the clutch, let the wheels roll free, Not a cloud in the sky, such a sunny day, Push in the button, let the top ten play. Come on honey, let me sing 'em away, Come on honey, let me sing 'em away, Oh, honey, let me sing your blues away. Give me a little of that old time love, Cause I ain't never had near enough. Honey, walk that walk with style and grace, This ain't no knock-down drag-out race. It don't matter much, pick any gear, Brind you a pound and drop the rear. Baby,...

On The Road Again Lyrics

On The Road Again Lyrics

Why I married me a bad girl, tell you the reason why Bad girls will even do things on the sly Look for your supper to be good and hot She never even put a stew bone in the pot She's on the road again, sure as you're born Natural born easy on the road again Friend come by, say looking for his hat Wants to know where your husband's at I don't know, he's on his way to the pen Come on pretty mama, let's get on the road again Went to my house the front door was locked Went 'round to my window, but my window was locked Jumped right back, shook my...

Samson and Delilah Lyrics

Samson and Delilah Lyrics

If I had my way, I would tear this old building down. Well Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair, She had good looks, God knows, and coal black hair, Delilah she gained old Samson's mind. When first he saw this woman, you know he couldn't believe his mind. Delilah she climbed up on Samson's knee, Said tell me where your strength lies if you please. She spoke so kind and she talked so fair, Well Samson said, Delilah cut off my hair. You can shave my head, clean as my hand And my strength will become as natural as any old man. If I had my...

Beat It On Down The Line Lyrics

Well this job I've got is just a little too hard, Running out of money, Lord, I need more pay. Gonna wake up in the morning Lord, gonna pack my bags, I'm gonna beat it on down the line. I'm goin' down the line, goin down the line, Goin' down the line, goin down the line, Goin' down the line, goin down the line, Beat it on down the line. Yes I'll be waiting at the station Lord, when that train pulls on by, I'm going back where I belong. I'm going back to that same old used-to-be, Down in Joe Brown's coal mine. Coal mine, coal mine, coal mine,...

China Cat Sunflower Lyrics

China Cat Sunflower Lyrics

Look for a while at the China Cat sunflower, Proud walking jingle in the midnight sun. Copperdome bodhi drip a silver kimono, Like a crazy quilt stargown through a dream night wind. Crazy cat peekin' through a lace bandanna, 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 Cryin' Leonardo, Words from out a silk trombone. I rang a silent bell, beneath a shower of pearls, In the eagle-winged palace of the Queen...

Wharf Rat Lyrics

Wharf Rat Lyrics

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 f***er's crime, The other half found me stumbling 'round drunk on Burgundy wine. But I'll get back...

The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion) Lyrics

See that girl, barefootin' along, Whistlin' and singin', she's a carryin' on. There's laughing in her eyes, dancing in her feet, She's a neon-light diamond and she can live on the street. Hey hey, hey, come right away Come and join the party every day. Well everybody's dancin' in a ring around the sun Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun. So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat. Try on your wings and find our where it's at. Hey hey, hey, come right away Come and join the party every day. Take a vacation, fall out for a...

Ramble On Rose Lyrics

Just like Jack the Ripper, just like Mojo Hand, Just like Billy Sunday, in a shotgun ragtime band, Just like New York City, just like Jerico, Pace the halls and climb the walls and get out when they blow. Did you say your name was Ramblin Rose? Ramble on baby, settle down easy Ramble on Rose. Just like Jack and Jill, Mama told the jailor One hear up, and one cool down, leave nothin' for the tailor. Just like Jack and Jill, Papa told the jailer One go up, and one go down, do yourself a favor. Did you say your name was Ramblin Rose? Ramble on...

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?

Loser Lyrics

If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene Don't you push me baby, Cause I'm all alone and you know I'm only in it for the gold All that I am asking for is ten gold dollars And I could pay you back with one good hand You can look around about the wide world over And you'll never find another honest man. Last fair deal in the country, Sweet Suzie, last fair deal in the town Put your gold money where your love is baby, Before you let my deal go down Don't you push me baby, cause I'm all alone Well I know a...

Ripple Lyrics

Ripple Lyrics

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...
