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...

Sunrise Lyrics

Sunrise Lyrics

Gazing at the fire, burning by the water Before he speaks the world around us quiets. With eyes as sharp as arrows and turning to the fire He clears the air and cuts it with a feather. Many in a circle slowly 'round the fire When he is gone I want to know him better. No one is forsaken, no one is a liar, He plants the tree of life on our foreheads with water. He hums, there are drums, four winds, rising suns, We are singing and playing, I her him saying. I remember breezes from winds inside your body keep me high, like I told you, I'll sing to...

Little Red Rooster Lyrics

Little Red Rooster Lyrics

I'm a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days Just a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days Keep everything in the barnyard people, upset in every way Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl Watch out stray cat people the little red rooster is on the prowl If you see the little red rooster, won't you please drive him home If you see my little red rooster, won't you please drive him home Been no peace in the barnyard people, since the little red rooster's been gone [...

Franklin's Tower Lyrics

Franklin's Tower Lyrics

In another times forgotten space Your eyes looked from your mother's face Wallflower seed on the sand and stone May the four winds blow you safely home. Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew I'll tell you where the four winds dwell In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell It can ring, turn night to day It can ring like fire when you loose your way. Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew God save the child that rings that bell It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell One...

New Minglewood Blues Lyrics

I was born in a desert, Raised in a loin's den And my number one occupation is stealing women from their men If your down in Memphis, you best stop down minglewood When I take a walk down there, all the women sure look good If you can't believe me, it'll make it hard to believe in you Cause we all need each other, well you know it's true

Truckin' Lyrics

Truckin' Lyrics

Truckin' got my chips cashed in. Keep truckin', like the do-dah man Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin' on. Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street. Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street. Your typical city involved in a typical daydream Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings. Dallas, got a soft machine; Houston, too close to New Orleans; New York's got the ways and means; but just won't let you be, oh no. Most of the cast that you meet on the streets speak of true love, Most of the time...

Dark Star Lyrics

Dark Star Lyrics

Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes. Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis. Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion. Shall we go, you and I while we can Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds? Mirror shatters in formless reflections of matter. Glass hand dissolving to ice petal flowers revolving. Lady in velvet recedes in the nights of goodbye. Shall we go, you and I while we can Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

Ramble On Rose Lyrics

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...

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...

Bird Song Lyrics

Bird Song Lyrics

All I know is something like a bird within her sang, All I know she sang a little while and then flew on, Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain. If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why? Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by, Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night. Don't cry now, don't you cry, don't you cry anymore. Sleep in the stars, don't you cry, dry your eyes on the wind. All I know is something like a bird within her sang, All I know she sang a little while and then...

France Lyrics

France Lyrics

Way down in the south of France all the ladies love to dance kick their heels up in the air snap their fingers for romance While the gentlemen compare blonde or black or auburn hair check the motion and the style Oh, you know they take their while Hey, to make the motion more complete, yeah, to make it more a treat Club D'Jour is where to go come on down and see the show When the rhythm's really right you can burn it down tonight when the singing's really fine sweet as Spanish sherry wine When the club can't contain the beat it just rolls out...

You Win Again Lyrics

The news is out, all over town that you've been seen, out runnin' 'round. I know that I should leave her there, But then I just can't go, you win again. This heart of mine, could never see what everybody knows but me. Just trustin' you was my great sin, I just can't go, Lord You win again. What can I do, Lord, You win again.

Doin' That Rag Lyrics

Da da da da da da da da da da da Sittin in Mangrove valley chasing light beams Everything wanders from baby to Z Baby Baby pretty it up on Tuesday Old like a rum-drinking demon at tea. Baby Baby tell me what's the matter, what, what tell me what's your why how? Tell me why will you never come home Tell me what's your reason, if you've got a good one. Everywhere I go, the people all know Everyone's doin' that rag. Everywhere I go, the people all know Everyone's doin' that rag. Take my line, go fishin' for a Tuesday, Maybe take my supper, eat it...

Big River Lyrics

Big River Lyrics

Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry cry cry, Taught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky. Tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you big river, And I'm a gonna sit right here until I die. I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota, She tore me up everything I heard her drawl, that southern drawl. Well I heard my dream went back downstream, cavortin' in Davenport, And I follow you big river when you called. Well I followed her down to St. Louie, later on down the river, Trader said she's been here, but she's gone, boy,...

Box Of Rain Lyrics

Box Of Rain Lyrics

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day. Maybe the sun is shining, birds are singing, No rain is falling from a heavy sky. What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through? For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago. Walk out of any doorway, feel your way, feel your way like the day before. Maybe you'll find direction, Around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you. What do you want me to do, to watch for you while you are sleeping? The please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming...

Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) Lyrics

Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) Lyrics

I went down one day, I went down one day to see a Gypsy woman, Just one old day, yes I did, I want to find out, I want to find out, I want to find out, I want to find out now, What's wring with me and my baby. We ain't gettin' down like we used to do, I mean it's pretty good now, but there was a time, When it didn't work too well. I went down to see this Gypsy woman, you understand, I told her my story, I told her what was goin' on. And she told me, man she said, all you need, all you need, She said all you got to have, oh Lord, Just a touch...

The judge decreed it, the clerk he wrote it. Clerk he wrote it down indeed-e Judge decreed it, clerk he wrote it down Give you this jail sentence you'll be Nashville bound Some got six month some got one solid.

I was born in the desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in the desert Raised in a lion's den Oh, my number one occupation is stealing women from their men Well, I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good. Said, I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good. Well, the sheriff couldn't catch me, But his little girl sure wish she could. Well now the doctor call me crazy, sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't, Said now the doctor call me crazy, sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't, Yes, and the preacher man call me...

I Know You Rider Lyrics

I Know You Rider Lyrics

I know you, rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone; I know you, rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone; Gonna miss your baby, from rolling in your arms. Laid down last night, Lord, I could not take my rest; Laid down last night, Lord, I could not take my rest; My mind was wandering like the wild geese in the West. The Sun will shine in my back door someday. The Sun will shine in my back door someday. March winds will blow all my troubles away. I wish I was a headlight, on a North bound train; I wish I was a headlight, on a North bound train; I'd shine...
