You Win Again Lyrics

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.

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...

Greatest Story Ever Told Lyrics

Greatest Story Ever Told Lyrics

Moses come ridin' up on a quasar His spurs were jingling, the door was ajar His buckle was silver, his manner was bold And I asked him to come in out of the cold. His brain was boiling, his reason was spent His motto is nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent He ask me for mercy, I gave him a gun. He said these things just got to be done. Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence You'd get right to work if you had any sense You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench. Gideon come up with his eyes on the floor Said "You ain't got a...

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

Shakedown Street Lyrics

Shakedown Street Lyrics

You tell me this town ain't got no heart. Well, well, well, you can never tell. The sunny side of the street is dark. Well, well, well, you can never tell. Maybe that's cause it's midnight, in the dark of the moon besides. Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, You know you got such dark eyes! Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street. Used to be the heart of town. Don't tell me this...

Without a warning you broke my heart, takin' it baby, tore it apart And you left me standin' in the dark, said your love for me was dyin'.

What's Become Of The Baby Lyrics

What's Become Of The Baby Lyrics

Waves of violet go crashing and laughing The rainbow winged singing birds fly 'round the sun Sun bells rain down in a liquid profusion Mermaids on porpoises draw up the dawn What's become of the baby this cold December morning? Songbirds frozen in their flight Drifting to the earth, remnants of forgotten dreaming Dawning answer comes there none. Go to sleep you child, dream of never-ending always Panes of crystal ice sparkle like waterfalls Lighting the polished ice caverns of the dawn, But where in the looking-glass fields of...

Ship of Fools Lyrics

Ship of Fools Lyrics

Went to see the captain, strangest I could find, Laid my proposition down, laid it on the line. I won't slave for beggar's pay, likewise gold and jewels, But I would slave to learn the way to sink your ship of fools. Ship of fools on a cruel sea, ship of fools sail away from me. It was later than I thought when I first believed you, Now I cannot share your laughter, ship of fools. Saw your first ship sink and drown, from rockin' of the boat, And all that could not sink or swim was just left there to float. I won't leave you drifting down, but...

Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo Lyrics

Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo Lyrics

On the day when I was born Daddy sat down and cried. I had the mark just as plain as day; which could not be denied. They say that Cain caught Abel rollin' loaded dice; Ace of Spades behind his ear and him not thinkin' twice. Halfstep, Mississippi uptown toodeloo Hello, baby, I'm gone, goodbye Half a cup of Rock and Rye. Farewell to you old Southern skies I'm on my way, on my way. If all you got to live for is what you left behind, Get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine. Lost my boots in transit, baby, pile of smokin'...

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...

Brokedown Palace Lyrics

Brokedown Palace Lyrics

Fare you well, my honey, fare you well my only true one. All the birds that were singing are flown, except you alone. Going to leave this brokedown palace, On my hand and knees, I will roll, roll, roll. Make myself a bed in the waterside, In my time, I will roll, roll roll. In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head. Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul. River going to take me, sing sweet and sleepy, sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home. It's a far gone lullaby, sung many years ago. Mama, mama many...

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...

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...

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...

Lost Sailor Lyrics

Lost Sailor Lyrics

Compass card is spinning, helm is swinging to and fro Oh, where is the dog star, oh, where's the moon. You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea. Somedays the gales are howling, sometimes the sea is still as glass. Oh, raise the main sail, oh, lash the mast. You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea. Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free. There's a sea bird cryin' and there's a ghost wind blowing And it's calling you, to that misty swirling sea. Till the chains of your dreams are broken, No place in this world...

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...

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...
