Saint Stephen Lyrics

Saint Stephen Lyrics

Saint Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes, Country garden in the wind and the rain, Wherever he goes the people all complain. Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline. Did it matter, does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how. Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell, Hell halfway twixt now and then, Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again. Lady in blue, dipped in moonlight, writing "What for?" across the morning sky. Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer,...

Cumberland Blues Lyrics

Cumberland Blues Lyrics

I can't stay much longer, Melinda, The sun is getting high. I can't help you with your troubles, If you won't help with mine. I gotta get down, I gotta get down, I gotta get down to the mine. You keep me up just one more night, I can't sleep here no more. Little Ben clock says quarter to eight; You kept me up 'till four. I gotta get down, I gotta get down, Or I can't work there no more. A lotta poor man make a five dollar bill, Keep him happy all the time. Some other fella's makin nothin' at all And you can hear him cry, "Can I go, buddy, can...

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...

Loose Lucy Lyrics

Loose Lucy is my delight, she come runnin' and we ball all night, round and round and round and round and round and round and round, don't take much to get me on the ground. She's my yo-yo, I'm her string, listen to the birds on the hot wire sing, yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh-yeh yeh, singing, "Thank you, for a real good time!" I got jumped coming home last night, Shadow in the alley turned out all my lights, round and round and round and round and round and round and round, don't take much to get me on the ground. Loose Lucy, she was sore, says I know...

Tennessee Jed Lyrics

Tennessee Jed Lyrics

Cold iron shackles, ball and chain, Listen to the whistle of the evenin' train. You know you bound to wind up dead, If you don't head back to Tennessee Jed. Rich man step on my poor head, When you get back you better butter my bread. Well, do you know it's like I said, You better head back to Tennessee Jed. Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be, Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee. Drink all day and rock all night, The law come to get you if you don't walk right Got a letter this morning, baby all it read, You better...

Monkey And The Engineer Lyrics

Monkey And The Engineer Lyrics

Once upon a time there was an engineer. Drove a locomotive both far and near. Accompanied by a monkey that would sit on a stool Watching everything the engineer would do One day the engineer wanted a bite to eat, He left the monkey sitting on the driver's seat, The monkey pulled the throttle, the locomotive jumped the gun And did 80 miles an hour down the mainline run. Big locomotive right on time, big locomotive coming down the line. Big locomotive No. 99, left the engineer with a worried mind. The engineer called up the dispatcher on the...

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...

El Paso Lyrics

El Paso Lyrics

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl. Nighttime would fine me in Rose's Cantina, Music would play and Felina would whirl. Black as the night were the eyes of Felina, Wicked and evil while casting a spell. My love was strong for this Mexican maiden, I was in love, but in vain I could tell. One night a wild young cowboy came in, wild as the West Texas wind... Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing, With wicked Felina, the girl that I love. So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this...

Me And My Uncle Lyrics

Me And My Uncle Lyrics

Me and my uncle went ridin' down, South Colorado, West Texas bound. We stopped over in Santa Fe, That bein' the point just about half way, And you know it was the hottest part of the day. I took the horses up to the stall, Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all. Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt, It bein' summer, I took off my shirt, And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt. When Texas cowboys, they's all around, With liquor and money, they loaded down. So soon after payday, know it seemed a shame; You know my uncle,...

Althea Lyrics

Althea Lyrics

I told Althea I was feeling lost, lacking in some direction. Althea told me upon scrutiny that my back might need protection. I told Althea that treachery was tearing me limb from limb. Althea told me better cool down boy, settle back, easy Jim. You may be Saturday's child, all alone, moving with a tinge of grace. You may be a clown in the burying ground, or just another pretty face. You may meet the fate on Ophelia, sleeping and penchence to dream. Honest to the point of recklessness, self-centered in the extreme. Ain't nobody messing with...

Eyes Of The World Lyrics

Eyes Of The World Lyrics

Right outside this lazy summer home you ain't got time to call your soul a critic no. Right outside the lazy gate of winter's summer home, wonderin' where the nut-thatch winters, wings a mile long just carried the bird away. Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world, the heart has it's beaches, it's homeland and thoughts of it's own. Wake now, discover that you are the song that the mornin' brings, But the heart has it's seasons, it's evenin's and songs of it's own. There comes a redeemer, and he slowly too fades...

Candyman Lyrics

Come on all you pretty women, with your hair a hanging down, Open up your windows cuz the Candyman's in town. Come on boys and gamble, roll those laughing bones, Seven come eleven, boys I'll take your money home. Look out, look out the Candyman, Here he comes and he's gone again. Pretty lady ain't got no friend till, The Candyman comes around again, around again. I come from Memphis where I learned to talk the jive, When I get back to Memphis be one less man alive. Good morning Mr. Benson, I see you're doing well, If I had me a shotgun I'd...

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...

Black Muddy River Lyrics

Black Muddy River Lyrics

When the last rose of summer pricks my finger, And the hot sun chills me to the bone, When I can't hear the song for the singer, And I can't tell my pillow from a stone, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own. When the last bolt of sunshine hits the mountain, And the stars start to splatter in the sky, When the moon hits the southwest horizon, With the scream of an eagle on the fly, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And listen...

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...
