"I got this graveyard woman, you know she keeps my kid
But my soulful mama, you know she keeps me hid
She's a junkyard angel and she always gives me bread
Well, if I go down dyin' you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed."

- from "From A Buick 6" by Bob Dylan...
the intro is great, but my favorite verse in this song is this one:

"Well, she don't make me nervous, she don't talk too much
She walks like Bo Diddley and she don't need no crutch
She keeps this four-ten all loaded with lead
Well, if I go down dyin', you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed."

Well what will it be?
Read all about their schemes and adventuring
Yes, it's well worth a fee
So roll up and see..."

It would sure be helpful if, after you've listed your opening lines to the song, you would also list the song name that it is from and the group/artist who does it. Some of these I am less familiar with and I'd like to look some of these up. Thank you in advance.

I know what it is to be sad"
And she's making me feel like I've never been born."

"In a long and involved conversation with myself,
I saw precious things come into view,
When I poured through the files taken off my mental shelf,
I dusted off some memories of you."

Here is one of my favorites, if not THE favorite tune by Jefferson Airplane:

A friend of mine asked me
Where has he been
Where is he now?
I said he's been set free
Shares a little joke with the world somehow...

from "Share A Little Joke" by Jefferson Airplane

I'd like to inject a bit of levity here, so I offer up the following:

"All around the country and coast,
People always say 'what do you like most'
I don't wanna brag, I don't wanna boast,
I always tell 'em I like toast"

"Toast" from the Bob and Tom Show
