He's Gone Lyrics

He's Gone Lyrics

Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb, you know better but I know him. Like I told you, what I said, Steal your face right off your head. Now he's gone, now he's gone, Lord he's gone, he's gone. Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone. Nine mile skid on a ten mile ride, hot as a pistol but cool inside. Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile, Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!!!! Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone. Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down...

Queen Jane Approximately Lyrics

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 Peter Lyrics

Black Peter Lyrics

All of my friends come to see me last night, I was laying in my bed and dying. Annie Bonneau from St. Angel say the weather down there so fine. Just then the wind came squalling through the dark, But who can the weather command? Just want to have a little peace to die, And a friend or two I love at hand. Fever roll up to a hundred and five. Roll on up, gonna roll back down. One more day I find myself alive, Tomorrow maybe go beneath the ground. See here how everything led up to this day, And it's just like any other day that's ever been. Sun...

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...

U.S. Blues Lyrics

U.S. Blues Lyrics

Red and white, blue suede shoes, I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do? Gimme five, I'm still alive, ain't no luck, I learned to duck. Check my pulse, it don't change. Stay seventy-two come shine or rain. Wave the flag, pop the bag, rock the boat, skin the goat. Wave that flag, wave it wide and high. Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my. I'm Uncle Sam, that's who I am; Been hidin' out in a rock and roll band. Shake the hand that shook the hand of P.T. Barnum and Charlie Chan. Shine your shoes, light your fuse. Can you use them ol' U.S....

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...

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,...

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...

Picasso Moon Lyrics

Picasso Moon Lyrics

South of Market in the land of ruin You get all manner of action Tinsel tigers in The Metal Room Stalking satisfaction. They got 'em packaged up for love and money Tattooed tots and chrome spike bunnies Check my conscience at the DMZ And roll on in, gonna roll in it, honey But I get a feelin like when big things collide Like the crack before the thunder, like I really ought to hide And here comes Metal Angel, she looks ready to ride; & What's that she's tryin' to show me..? What's that you're tryin' to show me..? [Chorus:] Picasso Moon,...

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.

But me and my buddies all got lifetime here I wrote a letter I mailed in the air, Mailed it on the air indeed-e I wrote a letter I mailed in the air. You may know by that I've got a friend somewhere

One More Saturday Night Lyrics

One More Saturday Night Lyrics

I went down to the mountain, I was drinking some wine, Looked up in the heavens Lord I saw a mighty sign, Writt'n fire across the heaven, plain as black and white; Get prepared, there's gonna be a party tonight. Uhuh, Hey! Saturday Night! Yeh, uhuh one more Saturday night, Hey Saturday night! Everybody's dancin' down the local armory With a basement full of dynamite and live artillery. The temperature keeps risin', everybody gittin' high; Come the rockin' stroke of midnite, the whole place gonna fly. Uhuh, Hey! Saturday Night! Yeh, uhuh one...

I Will Take You Home (Little Girl Lost) Lyrics

Little girl lost In a forest of dreams. It's a dark old wood And it's damp with dew. Hoot owl hoots For a moment it seems Something big and cold Just got ahold of you. Just when everything gets scary, Daddy's come 'round for his darlin' again. Hold my hand with your little fingers. Daddy's loving arms gonna gather you in. Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you, You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you, Your daddy's here and never will forget you, I will take you home. I will take you home. Gonna carry you back home In my arms. I will...

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...

Stella Blue Lyrics

Stella Blue Lyrics

All the years combine, they melt into a dream, A broken angel sings from a guitar. In the end there's just a song comes cryin' up the night Thru all the broken dreams and vanished years. Stella blue. Stella blue. When all the cards are down, there's nothing left to see, There's just the pavement left and broken dreams. In the end there's still that song comes cryin' like the wind. Down every lonely street that's ever been Stella blue. Stella blue. I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel, can't win for trying. Dust off those rusty strings...

When they come to take you down When they bring that wagon 'round When they come to call on you and drag your poor body down Just one thing I ask of you, just one thing for me Please forget you know my name, my darling Sugaree Shake it, shake it sugaree, just don't tell them that you know me Shake it, shake it sugaree, just don't tell them that you know me You thought you was the cool fool and never could do no wrong Had everything sewed up tight. How come you lay awake all night long Just one thing I ask of you, just one thing for me Please...

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,...

Don't Ease Me In Lyrics

Don't ease, don't ease, don't ease me in. I've been all night long commin' home, don't ease me in. I was standing on the corner, talking to Miss B When I turned around sweet mama, she was way across town So I'm walkin' down the street with a dollar in my hand I've been lookin' for a woman sweet mama, ain't got no man. The girl I love, she's sweet and true, You the dress she wears, sweet mama, it's pink and blue, She brings me coffee, she brings me tea, She brings me 'bout every damm thing but the jailhouse keys.
