Hey kid, rock and roll
Rock on, ooh, my soul
Hey kid, boogey too, did ya

Hey shout, summertime blues
Jump up and down in my blue suede shoes
Hey kid, rock and roll, rock on

And where do we go from here
Which is the way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy DEAN

Rock and Roll Band - Boston

Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road to try to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street

No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play
People came alive

Rock and roll band
Everybody's waitin'
Gettin' crazy, anticipating
Love and music
Play, play, play, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Dancin' in the streets of Hyannis
We were gettin' pretty good at the game
People stood in line and didn't seem to mind
You know everybody knew our name

Livin' on rock and roll music
Never worried 'bout the things we were missin'
When we got up on the stage and got ready to play
Everybody'd listen

Rock and roll band
Everybody's waitin'
Gettin' crazy, anticipating
Love and music
Play, play, play, yeah yeah

Playin' for a week in Rhode Island
A man came to the stage one night
He smoked a big cigar and drove a Cadillac car
And said, "Boys, I think this band's outta sight"

Sign the record company contracts
You know I've got great expectations
When I hear you on the car radio
You're gonna be a sensation

Rock and roll band
Everybody's waitin'
Gettin' crazy, anticipating
Love and music
Play, play, play, yeah yeah

Texas Woman says:
I had a dream last night I was cast into Hell by a jealous God
The Devil walked up and said you don't need no lightning rod
It hardly ever rains down here I can't recall the last storm
You aint gonna need that leather jacket it gets kinda warm
There's one way in there's no way out looks like you're to stay
The place is a mess, it's overcrowded, more are coming in everyday

I said ah man, wait a minute there's gotta be something wrong
I aint a bad guy just write these little songs
I always pay my union dues don't stay in the passing lane
And he said what about all that whiskey and the cocaine
I said well yeah but that's no reason to throw me in Hell
Cause I didn't use the cocaine to get high, I just liked the way it smelled

He said come on over here son, let me show you around
Over there's where we put the preachers, I never liked those clowns
They're always blaming me for everything wrong under the sun
It aint harder to what's right, it's just maybe not as much fun
Then the walk around thinking they're better than me and you
Then they get caught in a motel room doing what they said not to do

Now the murderers and the rapists they go in this firey lake
As well as most of the politician and the cops on the take
And all the mothers that wait to get to KMart to spank their kids
Instead of showing what to do what's right, they just hit 'em for what they did
And all the daddy's who run off and abandon their daughters and sons
Oh anybody that hurts a child is gonna burn until it's done

Everybody is down here I said who's up in Heaven with God and the Son
Oh some saints and mystics and students of metaphysics 101
People who care and share and love and try to do what's right
Beautiful old souls who read a little stories to their babies every night
What you wont find up in Heaven are Christian Coalition Right Wing
Conservatives Country program directors and Nashville RECORD executives

Now I said I've made some mistakes, but I'm not as bad as those guys
How can God to this to me or can't she sympathize
He said you're wrong about God being cruel and mean
Oh God is the most loving thing that's never been seen
I said hotshot tell me this which religion is the truest
He said there all about the same, Budda was not a Christian, but Jesus
woulda made a good buddist

Well I thought about my future I didn't seem to have much of one
I looked around to leave but there was no place to run
I said I don't suppose I could go back and try living again
You know like reincarnation I hear that's the way it's always been
I can't answer that he said you're gonna have to wait for that response
But it's not any more unusual to be born twice than it is to be born once

Well it looked like I was gonna be stuck here as far as I could tell
I thought I might as well suck up you know what the hell
I said you know that soung that Charlie Daniels did
About how you went down to Georgia and played fiddle against that kid
He said yeah it broke my heart but you know what are you gonna do
I said to tell you the truth I thought your solo was the better of the two

Well then I woke up and I was lying in my bed
I went upstairs and kissed my little boy on his sleeping head
I took this dream as a sign from God so I thought I'd better pray
I said don't ever speak to me directly and thanks anyway
Now so much has changed about me besides me just giving up red meat
Some get spiritual cause they see the light and some cause they feel the
heat

Val H. says:
Pancho Villa crossed the border in the year of ought sixteen
The people of Columbus still hear him riding through their dreams
He KILLED seventeen civilians you could hear the women scream
Black Jack Pershing on a dancing HORSE was waiting in the wings

Tonight we ride, tonight we ride
We'll skin ole Pancho Villa, make chaps out of his hide
Shoot his horse, Siete Leguas, and his twenty-seven bride
Tonight we ride, tonight we ride

We rode for three long years till Black Jack Pershing called it quits
When Jackie wasn't lookin' I stole his fine spade bit
It was tied upon his stallion, so I rode away on it
To the wild Chihuahuan desert, so dry you couldn't spit

Tonight we ride, you bastards dare
We'll kill the wild Apache for the bounty on his hair
Then we'll ride into Durango, climb up the whorehouse stairs
Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride

When I'm too damn old to sit a horse, I'll steal the warden's car
Break my a$$ out of this prison, leave my teeth there in a jar
You don't need no teeth for kissin' gals or smokin' cheap cigars
I'll sleep with one eye open, 'neath God's celestial stars

Tonight we rock, Tonight we roll
We'll rob the Juarez liquor store for the Reposado Gold
And if we drink ourselves to death, ain't that the cowboy way to go?

Tonight we ride, tonight we ride
Tonight we fly, we're headin' west
Toward the mountains and the ocean where the eagle makes his nest
If our bones bleach on the desert, we'll consider we are blessed
Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride

Tonight we ride, tonight we ride.

Edit: I might just have to buy that Dave Alvin CD. His version of "Highway 61 Revisited" (on an "Uncut" compilation) is my favourite.

Bklyn-Born says:
A boy alone and so far from home
Endless rooftops from my window
I felt the gloom of empty rooms
On rainy afternoons.

Sometimes in confusion
I felt so lost and disillusioned
Innocence gave confidence
To go up against reality.

All the same
We take our chances
Laughed at by time
Tricked by CIRCUMSTANCES

Plus ca change
Plus c'est la meme chose
The more that things change
The more they stay the same.

Now I've gained some understanding
Of the only world that we see
Things that I once dreamed of
Have become reality.

These walls that still surround me
Still contain the same old me
Just one more who's searching for
The world that ought to be.

All the same
We take our chances
Laughed at by time
Tricked by circumstances

Plus ca change
Plus c'est la meme chose
The more that things change
The more they stay the same.

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

FAR have I travelled and much have I seen
Dark distant mountains with valleys of green
Past painted deserts, the sun sets on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Still take me back where my mem'ries remain
Flickering embers grow higher and high'r
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre...

Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the CRAZIEST party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Open up your window, let some air into this room
I think I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you're smokin'
Don't scare me half to death
Open up the window, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me)
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Some radio is blastin'
someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend
She just passed out on the floor
I've seen so many things
I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is
I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me...)
She said "That ain't the way to have fun" (no no no)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
She said "That ain't the way to have fun" (oh no, no)...
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
Mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me...

The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everythin' I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Save me, save me
Save me from this squeeze
I've got a big fat momma tryin' to break me

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime

My GIRLFRIEND's gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty

Now I'm sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Well, give me two good reasons
Why I ought to stay

'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In Summertime, in summertime
In summertime

Save me, save me
Save me from this squeeze
I've got a big fat momma tyin' to break me

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime, in the summertime

I go out to work on Monday morning
Tuesday I go off to honeymoon
I'll be back again before it's time for sunny-down
I'll be LAZING ON A Sunday AFTERNOON

Bicycling on every Wednesday evening
Thursday I go waltzing to the zoo

I come from London town
I'm just an ordinary guy
Fridays I go painting in the Louvre

I'm bound to be proposing on a Saturday night
There he goes again
I'll be lazing on a Sunday
Lazing on a Sunday
Lazing on a Sunday afternoon

Tagging Doodah and David

I remember SUNDAY morning
I would meet him at the park
We'd walk together hand in hand
'Til it was almost dark

Now I wake up Sunday morning
Walk across the way to find
Nobody waiting for me
Sunday's just another day

Chorus
Sunday will never be the same
I've lost my Sunday-song,
He'll not be back again

Sunny afternoons that make me
Feel so warm inside
Have turned as cold and grey as ashes
As I feel the embers die

No longer can I walk these paths
For they have changed
I must be on, the sun is gone
And I think it's gonna rain

Chorus

I remember children
Feeding flocks of pigeons
I remember sunshine
And you were mine

Sunday will never be the same
I've lost my Sunday song,
He'll not be back again [...fade]

Texas Woman says:
I'm goin' down to the Greyhound Station, gonna get a ticket to ride
Gonna find that lady with two or three kids and sit down by her side
Ride 'til the sun comes up and down around me 'bout two or three times
Smokin' cigarettes in the last seat
Tryin' to hide my sorrow from the people I meet

And get along with it all
Go down where the people say "y'all"
Sing a song with a friend
Change the shape that I'm in,
And get back in the game,
And start playin' again

I'd like to stay but I might have to go to start over again
Might go back down to Texas, might go to somewhere that I've never been
And get up in the mornin' and go out at night
And I won't have to go home
Get used to bein' alone
Change the words to this song
Start singin' again

I'm tired of runnin' 'round lookin' for answers to questions that I already know
I could build me a castle of memories just to have somewhere to go
Count the days and the nights that it takes to get back in the saddle again
Feed the PIGEONS some clay
Turn the night into day
Start talkin' again, when I know what to say

I'm goin' down to the Greyhound Station, gonna get a ticket to ride
Gonna find that lady with two or three kids and sit down by her side
Ride 'til the sun comes up and down around me 'bout two or three times
Smokin' cigarettes in the last seat
Tryin' to hide my sorrow from the people I meet
And get along with it all

Go down where the people say "y'all"

Turn the night into day
Start talkin' again

All the lies that you told me, all the tears that I've cried
All the loving you gave me, it was a lie
I could never imagine, when I felt SO HIGH
That there could be somebody new
Better than you in my life

When I woke up this morning, with tears in my eyes
I never felt more like SAYING GOODBYE
I could never imagine, when I felt so high
That there could be somebody new
Better than you in my life

Am I just fooling myself?
Could there be somebody else?
Could there be somebody new, waiting around the corner?
Yes there is, waiting for you, waiting for someone like you

All the nights that you told me, all your loving was mine
And I wanted to listen, to all of your lies
I could never imagine, when I felt so high
That there could be somebody new
Better than you in my life

All the nights that you told me, all your loving was mine
Now there could be somebody new
Better than you in my life

Until David replies to you, let me say a few words that I hope all of the others can agree with. They will correct me if I am wrong.

Which song tags have you submitted?

We like the poems of the songs. We enjoy reading the words.
We like to find new artists, and to remember old ones.
If you want to post an excerpt of a song feel free.
However, that will be your choice to do so.

I for one look forward to your tag, and I hope you are not just a troll.

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old,
and darker days are drawing near,
the winter winds will be much colder,
now you're not here.

I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
and one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them,
now you're not here

like the sun through the trees you came to LOVE me
like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
you always loved this time of year
loose fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
cos you're not here x 3

like the sun through the trees you came to love me
like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

a gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
as if to hide a lonely tear
my life will be forever autumn
cos you're not here x 6

The Long and Winding Road - Beatles

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never DISAPPEAR
I've seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to you door

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here?
Let me know the way

Many times I've been alone
And many times I've cried
Anyway you'll never know
The many ways I've tried

And still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don't leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don't keep me waiting here
Lead me to your door
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Linda lost a lover
In the early part of autumn
And she moved out to the country
Hoping all would be forgotten
The last time that I saw her
She was making sure the winter
Wouldn't come through that old DOOR frame
Where the door is
Several inches from the ground
The cold, hard ground

Chorus
And it's hard to go down easy
And it's hard to keep from crying
And it's hard to lose a lover in the early part of autumn

Well she learned to cook the meals
And she learned to start the fire
And she learned to make jewelry
Out of stones and precious metals
She sits down to the table
With her friends and several others
And she tries real hard to never be alone

Chorus

Now the winter wind blows cold
Upon a fair and gentle soul
And she feels as if her time is passing easy
But her friends are sometimes lovers.
Though they'll always be another
She thinks about when nighttime lays on down

Chorus (2X)

Go Down Easy by Dan Fogelberg

Take it Easy - The Eagles

Well, I'm running down the road
Tryin' to loosen my load
I've got seven women on
My mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna stone me,
One says she's a friend of mine
Take it EASY, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
And take it easy
Well, I'm a standing on a corner
In winslow, arizona
And such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
Gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
We will never be here again
So open up, I'm climbin' in,
So take it easy
Well I'm running down the road trying to loosen
My load, got a world of trouble on my mind
Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my
Cover, she's so hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own
Wheels make you crazy
Come on baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
Gonna save me, oh oh oh
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy
