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.

Me And Bobby McGee Lyrics

Me And Bobby McGee Lyrics

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train, Feeling nearly faded as my jeans, Bobby flagged a diesel down, just before it rained, Took us all the way to New Orleans. I took my harp on out of my dirty red bandanna, I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues, With them windshield wipers slappin' time, Bobby clappin' hands, We sang every song that driver knew. Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to do. Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free. Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues. Feelin' good was good enough for...

Crazy Fingers Lyrics

Crazy Fingers Lyrics

Your rain falls like crazy fingers Peals of fragile thunder keeping time Recall the days that still are to come some sing blue. Hang your heart on laughing willow stray Down to the water, deep sea of love beneath the sweet calm face of the sea swift undertow. Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know, See how it feels in the end. May Lady Lullaby sing plainly for you soft, strong, sweet and true. Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow tapping at the window, touch your hair So swift and bright strange figures of light float in air. Who can stop...

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...

The Eleven Lyrics

The Eleven Lyrics

High green chilly winds and windy vines In loops around the twisted shafts of lavender, They're crawling to the sun. Underfoot the ground is patched With arms of ivy wrapped around the manzanita, Stark and shiny in the breeze. Wonder who will water all the children of the garden When they sigh about the barren lack of rain and Droop so hungry neath the sky. William Tell has stretched his bow till it won't stretch No furthermore and/or it may require a change that hasn't come before. No more time to tell how, this is the season of what, Now is...

Loser Lyrics

Loser Lyrics

If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene Don't you push me baby, Cause I'm all alone and you know I'm only in it for the gold All that I am asking for is ten gold dollars And I could pay you back with one good hand You can look around about the wide world over And you'll never find another honest man. Last fair deal in the country, Sweet Suzie, last fair deal in the town Put your gold money where your love is baby, Before you let my deal go down Don't you push me baby, cause I'm all alone Well I know a...

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...

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,...

Alabama Getaway Lyrics

Alabama Getaway Lyrics

32 teeth in a jawbone, Alabama trying for none, Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run. Reason the poor girls love him, promise them everything, Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring. Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway, Only way to please me, ya just gotta leave and walk away. Major Domo Billy Bojangles, sit down and have a drink with me, "What's this about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me. Heard your plea in the courthouse, Witness box began to rock and rise, 49 sister states all had...

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...

Easy To Love You Lyrics

Easy To Love You Lyrics

Good, good morning, so good to see you weren't just a dream of mine Real as a raven, real as thunder, real as the sun shinin' But still so very undefined Can't imagine what's behind those sleepy eyes Little stranger, don't try to hide now You look so young when you're afraid There is no danger, but from the devil He may want you, but I'm in his way You don't know how easy it is You don't know how easy it is to love you And come the moonrise when the dew falls Don't be the sun that fades away Don't leave me darkness, she's no lover, she hides...

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...

Born Cross-Eyed Lyrics

Seems like I've been here before, Fuzzy then and still so obscure, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. And I don't want to see anybody cry, Meet me some mornin' in the sweet by and by, by and by, by and by. Song commin' on, So pleasin' to see, come and gone, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, You don't have to tell me why, Meet me some mornin' in the sweet by and by, by and by, by and by. It ain't cause I'm the only one left darlin', Bout the time the sun rises west, Feelin' groovy, lookin' fine. Think I'll come back here again, Every now and...

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...

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...

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...
