Cassidy Lyrics

Cassidy Lyrics

I have seen where the wolf has slept by the silver stream. I can tell by the mark he left you were in his dream. Ah child of countless trees, ah child of boundless seas. What are you, what are you meant to be? Speaks his name for you were born to me, Born to me, Cassidy Lost now on the country miles in his Cadillac. I can tell by the way you smile he is rolling back. Come wash the nighttime clean, come grow the scorched ground green. Blow the horn, tap the tambourine. Close the gap on the dark years in between. You and me, Cassidy Quick beats...

Uncle John's Band Lyrics

Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like Easy Street, there is danger at your door. Think this through with me, let me know your mind, Wo, oh, what I want to know, is are you kind? It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice. You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice. Will you come with me? Won't you come with me? Wo, oh, what I want to know, will you come with me? Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like? Their wall are built of cannonballs, their...

To Lay Me Down Lyrics

To Lay Me Down Lyrics

To lay me down, once more to lay me down with my head in sparklin' clover to lay me down, on e last time, to lay me down To be with you, once more, to be with you. With our bodies close together let the world go by, like the clouds a'streamin' to lay me down, on e last time, to lay me down to lay me down, to lay me down, to lay me down, one last time, to lay me down to lie with you, once more, to lie with you with our dreams entwined together to wake beside you, my love still sleepin' to tell sweet lies, one last time and say good night to lay...

Money, Money Lyrics

Money, Money Lyrics

My baby gives me the finance blues, Tax me to the limit of my revenues. Here she comes finger-poppin', clickety-click She says furs or diamonds, you take your pick. She wants money, what she wants, She wants money, what she wants, She wants money, what she wants, She wants money, what she wants, Money money, money money money. Money money, money money money. She say, "Money, honey", I'd rob a bank, I just load my gun and mosey down to the bank. Knockin' off my neighborhood savings and load, To keep my sweet chiquita in eau de cologne. She...

Just A Little Light Lyrics

Just A Little Light Lyrics

Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true... The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might To give you just a little sweetness... Just a little sweetness... Just a little light. I have always heard that virtue oughta be its own...

Help On The Way Slipknot! Lyrics

Help On The Way  Slipknot! Lyrics

Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her angels in flames. She has no pain, like a child she is pure, she is not to blame. Poised for flight, wings spread bright, spring from night into the sun. Don't stop to run, she can fly like a lie, she can't be outdone. Tell me the cost; I can pay, let me go, tell me love is not lost. Sell everything; without love day to day insanity's king. I will pay day by day, anyway, lock, bolt and key. Crippled but free, I was blind all the time I was learning to see. Help on the way, well, I know only this,...

Unbroken Chain Lyrics

Unbroken Chain Lyrics

Blue light rain, whoa unbroken chain, Looking for familiar faces in an empty window pane. Listening for the secret, searching for the sound But I could only hear the preacher and the baying of his hounds. Willow sky, whoa, I walk and wonder why, They say love your brother, but you will catch it when you try. Roll you down the line boy, drop you for a loss, Ride you out on a cold railroad and nail you to a cross. November and more, as I wait for the score, They're telling me forgiveness is the key to every door. A slow winder day a night like...

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Long distance runner, what you standin' there for? Get up, get out, get out of the door Your playin' cold music on the barroom floor Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core. There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down. Fire! Fire on the mountain! Almost ablaze still you don't feel the heat It takes all you got just to stay on the beat. You say it's a livin', we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete. If Mercy's a bus'ness, I wish it for you More than...

Good Lovin' Lyrics

Good Lovin' Lyrics

Well, I was feelin' so bad, asked my family doctor 'bout what I had, I said, "Doctor, Doctor, Mister M.D., can you tell me, what's ailing me?" He said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah" All you need, all you really need: good lovin' Because you got to have lovin' (good lovin') Everybody got to have lovin' (good lovin') A little good lovin' now baby, good lovin'. So come on baby, squeeze me tight Don't you want your daddy to be alright? I said baby, now it's for sure, I've got the fever, you got the cure. He said,...

The Race Is On Lyrics

The Race Is On Lyrics

I feel tears welling up from down deep inside, Like my heart's got a big break And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake. You might think that I'm taking it hard since you broke me off with a call, You might wager that I'll hide in sorrow and I might lay right down and bawl. Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch, Heartaches a goin' to the inside, my tears are holding back, tryin' not to fall. My heart's our of the running, true love scratched for another's sake, The race is on and it looks like...

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...

My Brother Esau Lyrics

My Brother Esau Lyrics

My brother Esau killed a hunter Back in 1969 And before the killing was done, His inheritance was mine. But his birthright was a wand to wave Before a weary band. Esau gave me sleeplessness And a piece of moral land. My father favored Esau, Who was eager to obey All the bloody wild commandments The Old Man shot his way. But all this favor ended When my brother failed at war. He staggered home And found me in the door. [Chorus:] Esau skates on mirrors anymore... He meets his pale reflection at the door. Yet sometimes at night I dream He's still...

Rosalie McFall Lyrics

Rosalie McFall Lyrics

Out on the lonely hillside in a cabin low and small Lived the sweetest rose of color my Rosie McFall Her eyes were bright and shining and her voice was sweet to me Knew that I would always love her and I hoped that she loved me My eyes turned to me, my darlin' and this is what she said: You know that I would always love you when you and I are wed. Then God way up in heaven one day for her did call I lost my bride, oh how I loved her, my Rosie McFall I searched this wide world over through cities great and small But I never found another like...

Built To Last Lyrics

Built To Last Lyrics

There are times that you can beckon There are times when you must call You can shake a ton of reckoning But you can't shake it all There are times when I can help you out And times that you must fall There are times when you must live in doubt And I can't help at all Three blue stars / Rise on the hill Say no more, now / Just be still All these trials / Soon be past Look for something / Built to last Wind held by the collar Got a cloud held by the breeze You can walk on coals of fire But sometimes you must freeze There are times when you...

Terrapin Station Lyrics

Terrapin Station Lyrics

Terrapin Station - Lady With A Fan Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm, That will not forsake you, till my tale is told and done. While the firelight's aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow, Till things we've never seen will seem familiar. Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm. Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady many years ago. Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him, Who came through many fights, but lost at love. While the story teller speaks, a door within the...

Rosemary Lyrics

Rosemary Lyrics

Boots were of leather, a breath of cologne the mirror was a window she sat by alone. All around the garden grew scarlet and purple and crimson and blue. She came dead and she went, and at last went away, the garden was sealed when the flowers decayed. On the wall of the garden a legend did say, no one may come here since no one may stay.

Mama Tried Lyrics

Mama Tried Lyrics

The first I remember knowin' was that lonesome whistle blowin' And a youngin's dream of growin' up to ride. On a freight train leavin' town, not knowin' where I was bound No one could steer me right, but mama tried. Was the only rebel child from a family meek and mild Mama seemed to know what lay in store In spite of all my Sunday learnin' For the bad I kept on turnin' and mama couldn't hold me anymore. And I turned 21 in prison, doin' life without parole No one could steer me right, but mama tried, mama tried Mama tried to raise me better,...

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...

Queen Jane Approximately Lyrics

Now when your mother sends back all your invitations And your father to your sister he explains That you're tired of yourself and all of your creations Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Now the flower lady wants back what she has have lent you And the smell of her roses does not remain When all your children start to resent you Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Now when all the clowns that you have commissioned Have all died in battle or in vain And you find yourself sick...

Hurts Me Too Lyrics

Hurts Me Too Lyrics

You said you was hurtin', almost lost your mind; 'Cause the man you love, hurts you all the time. But when things go wrong, wrong with you... it hurts me too. You love him a little more, when you ought to love him less. Why pick up behind him and take his best? 'Cause when things go wrong, wrong with you... it hurts me too. You love another man; Oh, but I love you But you love him darlin', stick to him just about like glue. But when things go wrong, wrong with you... it hurts me too. Well, he better leave you, or you best put him down. 'Cause...
