Great song! Billy Joel, River of Dreams.

I think you are tagging the word RIVER. Remember to write it in caps so we know the word you are tagging. :-)
Now my tag to your song

Daniel, Daniel and the SACRED harp, dancing through the clover
Daniel, Daniel would you mind, if I look it over

I heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town
But I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
Tell me Daniel how the harp came in your possession.
Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the the procession?

And Daniel said, The sacred harp was handed down
From father unto son
And me not being related, I could never be the one
So I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man
Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.

Three years I waited patiently
'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee
He said there is one more thing I must ask, but not of personal greed
But I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp
And said take what you may need

Now Daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow
But the price that Daniel had really paid, he did not even know
Back to his brother he took his troubled mind
And he said dear brother I believe I'm in a bind

But the brother would not hear his tale
He said old Daniel's gonna land in jail
So to his father Daniel did run, and he said oh father what have I done
His father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp
But you lost in sin

And then Daniel took the harp and went high on the hill
And he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwill
He played out his heart for the time to pass
But as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast

Daniel, Daniel and the sacred harp, dancing through the clover
Daniel, Daniel would you mind, if I look it over

DANIEL

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

DANIEL is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

DANIEL is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

Like a BIRD on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Oh, like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, "You must not ask for so much"
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"

Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a Bird on A Wire by Leonard Cohen

This version is Joe Cocker's from his legendary Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide

Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your HAND to hold me
But I can't be your guide

Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down

"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the MOONLIGHT overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who has seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what's best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes
I want a girl with the right allocations
who is fast and thorough and sharp as a tack,
She is playing with her jewelry, she is putting up her hair
She is touring the facility
and picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a
looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong jacket

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is DARK like tinted glass
She is fast, thorough and sharp as a tack,
She is touring the facility and picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a looooooong,
loooooooooooooooooooooooooong jacket

Nananananananananananananananananana

I want a girl with smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
At Citi BANK we will meet accidently
We will start to talk when she borrows my pen
She wants a car with a cup holder armrest
She wants a car that will get her there
She is changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She is trading her MG for a white, Chrysler LeBaron
I want a girl with a short skirt and a
looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong jacket

Everybody calls her angel, she's no stranger to the DEVIL, I know
There's markings on her body, there's fires burning her soul
When we're making love he's laughing at us down below
She's the devil I know

She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
Says she comes from heaven
Angel is the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
Now she's the kind of woman keep you coming back for more
She's got the kind of face you swear you've seen someplace before
Coulda been your MAMA, coulda been a Mexican whore
She's the devil I know
She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
Says she comes from heaven
Angel is the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know

Now she'll drag me straight to hell, I can tell, I think I'll just go
The devil said to her to deliver me body and soul
And every inch she drags me down I'm closer to the glow
She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
Says she comes from heaven
Angel is the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know
Says she comes from heaven
Angel is the devil, I know
She's the devil, I know

I am an old woman
named after my mother
my old man is another
child who's grown old

If dreams were thunder
lightning was desire
this old house it would've burned down
a long time ago

Make me an ANGEL
that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster
of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing
that I can hold on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

When I was a young girl
I had me a cowboy
He wasn't much to look at
just a free ramblin' man
But that was a long time
no matter how I tried
the years they just rolled by
like a broken down dance

Make me an angel
that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster
of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing
that I can hold on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear them there buzzin'
And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today
But how the hell can a person
go on to work in the morning
to come home in the evening
and have nothing to say

Make me an angel
that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster
of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing
that I can hold on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

The air raid siren at the high school blew
Every weekday, twelve o'clock noon
Dinner time, people as if we didn't know
I guess the city fathers liked to hear that thing blow

The boys were chasing the city truck, spraying DDT
It kept the mosquitoes down
And that stuff won't hurt you none the neighbor lady'd say
Encephalitis, now that can ruin your day

Granny was hanging out wash, talking across the fence
The neighbor lady nodded like it all made sense
She's just gonna stay with him 'til the kids are grown
Fetch me that clothes pin up off the ground would you hon'

Won't you stay with me 'til the sun goes down?
On that flat top mountain to the West of town
Won't you stay a while, I just don't see
Why you must be leaving? Won't you stay with me?

I had a cherry coke dripping on my COWBOY clothes
Riding down Scott street in that big white Olds
We're going through ni***r town, honey lock your doors
'Course that's not what we're supposed to call 'em anymore

We're going to the beauty shop, it's not too far
You can come inside or you can just set in the car
No you can't go with grandpa to the pasture today
They're shipping calves and you'd just get in the way

Won't you stay with me 'til the sun goes down?
On that flat top mountain to the West of town
Won't you stay a while, I just don't see
Why you must be leaving? Won't you stay with me?

We had fried okra and black eyed peas
Granny had her saccharin, she was putting it in her tea
Pull that screen door to hon' you're letting in FLIES

Yonder comes the pickup, he's coming down the street
Run help him put the horses up so we can eat
He's always late for dinner, Lord, he moves so slow
12 o'clock whistle blew half an hour ago
Won't you stay with me 'til the sun goes down?
On that flat top mountain to the West of town
Won't you stay a while, I just don't see
Why you must be leaving? Won't you stay with ME?

WAKE UP Maggie, I think I got something to say to you
It's late September and I really should be back at school
I know I keep you amused but I feel I'm being used
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more
You led me away from home just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart and that's what really hurt

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none in my eyes you're everything
I laughed at all of your jokes my love you didn't need to coax
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more
You led me away from home, just to save you from being alone
You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without

All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover and
mother what a lover, you wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed
and in the morning kick me in the head
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore
You led me away from home 'cause you didn't want to be alone
You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried

I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helpin' hand
Oh Maggie, I wish that I'd never seen your face
You made a first-class fool out of me
But I'm as blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart but I love you anyway

Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
I'll get on back home one of these days

Lonely Highway
Dark Roadside
I've been praying for forgiveness of my sins
I know the devil's got a place for me
I am gone
I am leavin' IN THE MORNING

What an angry and bitter fool am I
I have been much more trouble then I'm worth
I have lusted
And stolen
And been stricken down.
I am gone
I am leavin' in the morning

And love
Ain't been no friend of mine
I said love
I am gone
I am leavin' when the morning comes
I am gone
I am leavin' in the morning

When they lay me underneath the ground
I want no one to shed a tear for me
I've lived life to it's fullest
And now I'm glory bound
I am gone
I am leavin' in the morning
I am gone
I am leavin' when the morning comes
I am gone
I am hangin' in the morning

I just moved in my new house today
Moving was hard but I got squared away
When bells starting rings and chains rattled loud
I knew I'd moved in a haunted house
Still I made up my mind to stay
Nothing was a-gonna drive me away
When I seen something that give me the creeps
Had one big eye and two big feet
I stood right there and I did the freeze
It did the stroll right up to me
Made a noise with its feet that sounded like a drum
Said "You gonna be here WHEN THE MORNING COMES?"
"Say yes, I'll be here when the morning comes
I'll be right here, I ain't gonna run
I bought this house, now I am boss
Ain't no haint's gonna run me off"

In my kitchen my stove was a blazing hot
Coffee was a-boiling in the pot
Grease had melted in my pan
I had a hunk of meat in my hand
From out of space there sat a man
On the hot stove with the pots and pans
"Say that's hot" I began to shout
He drank the hot coffee right from the spout
He ate the raw meat right from my hand
Drank the hot grease from the frying pan
And said to me "You better run and don't be here
When the morning comes"
Say yes I'll be here when the morning comes
I'll be right here now, I ain't gonna run
I bought this house now I am boss
Ain't no haint's gonna run me off.

S. Hurt says:
I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the monster mash

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son

The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
Igor on CHAINS, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"

They played the mash
They played the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
They played the mash
They played the monster mash

Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened the lid and shook his fist
And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"

It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash
The monster mash
And it's a graveyard smash
It's now the mash
It's caught on in a flash
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash

Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
The monster mash
And do my graveyard smash
Then you can mash
You'll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
