Song Lyrics

To the best of my knowledge, these are them folks!

Yankee Lady

(Jesse Winchester)

I lived with the decent folks in the hills of old Vermont
Where what you do all day depends on what you want
And I took up with a woman though I was still a kid
I smile like the sun to think of the lovin' that we did

She rolled each morning and went to work and she kept me with her pay
I was makin' love all night and playing guitar all day
And I got me apple cider and homemade bread to make a man say grace
And clean lenins on my bead and a warm feet fireplace

Woah oh Yankee lady's so good to me
Yankee lady just a memory
Yankee lady's so good to me
Your memory that's enough for me

An Autumn walk on a country road and a million flaming trees
I was feeling uneasy cause there was Winter in the breeze
And she said, woah baby look over there the birds are southward bound
Oh baby I'm so afraid to loose the love that we've found

Yeah Yankee lady's so good to me
Yankee lady just a memory
Yankee lady's so good to me
Your memory that's enough for me

I don't know what called to me but I know that I had to go
I left that Vermont town with a lift to Mexico
And now, and now when I see myself I'm a stranger by my birth
And Yankee lady's memory reminds me of my worth

Woah, Yankee lady's so good to me
Yankee lady just a memory
Yankee lady's so good to me
Your memory that's enough for me


Shake Off The Demon

(Brewer & Shipley)

Shake off the demon see how the angel run
Pull out the powder shoot with the empty gun
You know you burn down the highway and leave me no place to run, to run

So many visions to psychoanalyze
The politician screaming the bleedin' lies
And all the natural children riot for the compromise

Oh, babe, open your window and let that fresh air blow
Hey shake, babe, shake off your demon and watch that angel go, oh no

The priest and preacher talkin' up the holy will
Singin' the glory about how love fulfills
And here's a man from the uniform sayin' he wants to teach you to kill, to kill

Shake off the demon see how the angel run
Pull out the powder shoot with the empty gun
You know you burn down the highway and leave me no place to run

Oh, babe, open your window and let that fresh air blow
Hey shake, babe, shake off your demon and watch that angel go, woaho


Natural Child

(Brewer & Shipley)

Natural child got to believe in something
Natural child got to remain
Natural child got to believe in one thing
Natural child got to maintain

Natural child got to believe in something
Natural child or fall on your face
Natural child got to keep hopin' for one thing
Natural child the human race

Natural child got to believe in something
Got to believe in one thing
Natural child the human race


Merciful Love

(Brewer & Shipley)

Love love beautiful love
Lonely lullaby
Sad love merciful love
Every day of our lives

Oh say can you hear
Dawn is on the rise
Rockets bursting in air
Every day of our lives
Oh merciful love
Every day of our lives


Message From The Mission(Hold On)

(Brewer & Shipley)

For all our eyes we don't see
For all our chains we have freedom
We reach out in the night
Longing for the sun
A message from the mission comes
Sayin' "Hold on"

For all our words we don't hear
For all our changes we still fear them
We come mystified puzzled at the end
A message from the mission comes
Sayin' "Amen"

You better hold on, hold on
We reach out in the night
Longing for the sun
A message from the mission comes
Sayin' "Hold on"

For all our lives we don't live
For what we've taken we've not given
We stand crucified deafened by the guns
A message from the mission comes
Sayin' "Hold on"

You better hold on, hold on
We got to hold on, hold on


One By One

(Brewer & Shipley)

Ragged nights I grow weary of the storm
And the feelin' don't make it
But it's so hard to shake it
But sunny days bring a rush from bein' warm
And it helps me to take it and to carry it on

We're one by one, day by day, all in one
We're two by two, me and you, day by day

Hand in hand with our weakness on the rise
And although we show it we don't want to know it
And our burden shared is to clear these clouded eyes
And pick up the pieces and carry them on

We're one by one, day by day, all in one
We're two by two, me and you, day by day
We're one by one, day by day, all in one
We're two by two, me and you, day by day
We're one by one, day by day, all in one
We're two by two, me and you, day by day

When Everybody Comes Home

(Brewer & Shipley)

We'll bathe in the love that surrounds us
We'll sip from the cup of the throne
And friends that remain will be boundless
Oh the planets will fly

When everybody comes home, comes home
Will you be coming home, coming home
Will you be home

We'll share in the crystal communion
And rise on the hymns that we've known
We'll cherish our ragged reunion
All the ships will be sailing

When everybody comes home, comes home
Will you be coming home, coming home
Will you be home
Comes home
Will you be coming home, coming home
Will you be home


Working On The Well

(Brewer & Shipley)

Friend Daniel
Settin' traps for the big cat
He's so hyped for the lion
He can't see where the fight is at
Oh Captain Captain
Waging wars on the open sea
You might conquer the whole world
And not become what you need to be
Oh brother brother
I've got the same old story to tell
We've got to fill the cup with love
And keep working on the well

Sweet talker Delilah
She looks good when she's riding there
A famed shucker and jiver
She takes your soul
And she strips it bare
Oh kindred kindred
Will you bathe in the blood of time
Or lay low while the fire burns
And pass the days like you pass your wine
Oh brother brother
I've got the same old story to tell
We've got to fill the cup with love
And keep working on the well


Sweet Love

(Brewer & Shipley)

Some folks have got
Everybody should share
The power of love
Some folks have not become aware
And need the power of love

Talkin' 'bout love, sweet sweet love, love
Sweet love, sweet sweet love

There goes a man just like the rest
Who carved a heart from a stone
Broken to dust beneath his chest
The power of love came home

Talkin' 'bout love, sweet sweet love, love
Sweet love, sweet sweet love

Here comes a girl who leaves behind
A world she does not feel
The power of love has eased her mind
The beauty of love is real

Talkin' 'bout love, sweet sweet love, love
Sweet love, sweet sweet love
Talkin' 'bout love, sweet sweet love, love
Sweet love, sweet sweet love


Back To The Farm

(Brewer & Shipley)

Heroin heroes
Fearless in the fire
Robbers on the rooftops
Howling for the choir
All out of ammunition
With witches at the gate
If I make the country
Have to really celebrate

Get myself back down to the farm
Where my sweet love she soon will
Heal all wounds
And shield me from harm

Paradise people
Swinging at the bell
The hunters of the rich life
Are closing for the kill
Hiding in the shadows
Of places they have been
Where the living were the losers
And the loser never wins

Got to get 'em back down to the farm
The simple life it just might
Do a whole lot of good
And it can't do no harm

Cocaine disciples
Christians to the ring
Neon arenas
Sirens in the wings
Roll Ulysses
Learn it from the fox
Got to make the country
Or lose it on the rocks

Get yourself back down to the farm
This livin' on the road it just don't
Make no sense
When it's home you hunger for

Got to get you back down to the farm
The simple life it just might
Do a whole lot of good
And it can't do no harm
Get myself back down to the farm
Where my sweet love she soon will
Heal all wounds
And shield me from harm

Got to get home


Rock Me On The Water

(Jackson Browne)

Oh people look around you
The signs are everywhere
You've left it for somebody other than you
To be the one to care
You're lost inside your houses
There's no time to find you now
Oh your walls are burning and your towers are turning
Better leave you here
And try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls
Every woman child and man
Who have no idea where they will go
But they'll help you if they can
Now everyone must have some thought
That's gonna pull them through somehow
Oh the fires are raging hotter and hotter
But the sisters of the sun are gonna
Rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you sooth my fevered brow
Oh rock me on the water
And I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh people look among you
It's there your hope must lie
There's a sea bird above you gliding in one place
Like Jesus in the sky
We all must do the best we can
And then hang on to that gospel plow
When my life is over
Gonna stand before the father
But the sisters of the sun
Are gonna rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you sooth my fevered brow
Oh rock me on the water
And maybe I'll remember, maybe I'll remember how

Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
Rock me on the water
And I'll get down to the sea somehow


Tarkio Road

(Brewer & Shipley)
Movin' on down the Tarkio Road
Headed up to Crete Nebraska
Trying my best to set the highway on fire
But my bicycle won't go no faster
Tarkio Road is a mother
It's just like oh so many other
Where the children reject you
And the police suspect you
Looking inside the trunk under the hood hopin' to find
The secret places where you always keep your mind
Woah woah no Tarkio Road

Abby and rube been lying in jail
Learning 'bout the price of being free
Trying to live the constituional life
But being held back by hypocrisy
Carry the load my brother
Your just like oh so many other
Who the children reject it
And the police suspect it
Your tied to the chair manacled and bound and gagged
Is that your face on the American flag
Woah woah no carry the load

I'm singing Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
If your looking for some trouble
You can find it on the Tarkio Road

24 hours of barbed wire fence
55 years of pollution
Everyone knows how the puzzle was laid
But can anyone recall the solution
Tarkio Road is a mother
It's just like oh so many other
Where the people infect you
But they never elect you
No reason or cause that you may have perfectly sound
The blind look is gonna try and cut it down
Woah woah no Tarkio Road

I'm singing again Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
Tarkio Tarkio Road
If your looking for some trouble
You can find it on the Tarkio Road

(Brewer & Shipley)
I don't want to die in Georgia woah no

Oh Mommy

(Brewer & Shipley)
Oh mommy
I ain't no commie
I'm just doing what I can to live the good all American
Way
It says right there in the constitution
It's really a ok to have a revolution
When the leaders that you choose
Really don't fit the shoes

Oh mister
I ain't no sister
I believe in the bill of rights come on don't you start a fight
Please
I like to wear my hair long
How can there be anything wrong
When you already 'cused me twice
Of looking like Jesus Christ Hallelujah

I'm only gettin' tired of playing Punch and Judy
I'm really half a mind a go and do my duty
Like Mr. Patrick Henry said
I got to be free or dead

Mr. Nixon
I ain't a fixin'
To speak Spanish on a plane or polish off the liberty
Bell
I just want to sit here on the shelf
And watch you finish off the place by yourself
Please let me do what I wanna
I'll just lay around the house and smoke Marijuana oohoo

It says right there in the constitution
It's really a ok to have a revolution
When the leader that you made
Just don't make the grade
Oh mommy
I ain't no commie
But I hate to bust your bubble cause there's gonna be some trouble
Soon


One Toke Over The Line

(Brewer & Shipley)
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Who do you love I hope it's me
I've been a changin' as you can plainly see
I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
If I should choose to make a part of me will surely strike me dead
And now I'm

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I sail away a country mile
And now I'm returning and showing off my smile
I met all the girls and I loved myself a few
And to my surprise
Like everything else that I've been through
It opened up my eyes
And now I'm

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I was born to give and take
And as I keep growin' I'm gonna make some mistakes
The sun's gonna set and the bird is gonna wing they do not lie
My last wish will be just one thing
Be smilin' when I die
I wanna be

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
I wanna be
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
One toke
One toke over the line


One Kind Favor

(Blind Lemon Jefferson)
There's one kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
Won't you see that my grave is kept clean

Six white horses followin' me
Six white horses followin' me
Six white horses followin' me
Carry me to my buryin' ground

Can't you hear that mournful sound
Can't you hear that mournful sound
Means another poor boy is under ground

One kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
Won't you see that my grave is kept clean

Six white horses followin' me
Six white horses followin' me
Six white horses followin' me
Carry me to my buryin' ground

Can't you hear that mournful sound
Can't you hear that mournful sound
Can't you hear that mournful sound
Means another poor boy is under ground

One kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
One kind favor I'll ask of you
Won't you see that my grave is kept clean

One kind favor I'll ask of you
Won't you see that my grave is kept clean


Indian Summer

(Brewer & Shipley)
On the wind
Summer's leaving
It found me grieving
Living on my own thinking of you
Thinking of you
In the sand
By Rainbow River
My love did shiver till the fire and I warmed her again
Want you again
And I need you all through the night

Ah hold back the Winter Indian Summer
I'm not sure if I can take the snow
In mid December I can't help but wonder
How will I ever last till the coldness goes

Baby I miss you all through the day

Ah hold back the Winter Indian Summer
I'm not sure if I can take the snow
In mid December I can't help but wonder
How will I ever last till the coldness goes

You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

Ah You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you


Brain Damage

(Michael Brewer)
A one and a two and a three
I got brain damage from takin' those drugs
Brain damage from smokin' those rugs
All I got to show for my time is just a empty head

I got mind slippage my memory has flown
Mind drippage my fingers been blown
All I got to show for my troubles just what I said

Just a hollow head hangin' on a pile
Of some bones and some blood and some water
Cancer ain't far it's a nuclear war
So tell me son why does it matter

I got toll livers from drinkin' that booze
Enroll shivers from payin' those dues
All I got to show for my time is just an achin' head

I got dirty ways from livin' that life
Thirty days for beatin' my wife
All I got to show for my troubles just an empty bed

And a hollow head hangin' on a pile
Of some bones and some blood and some water
Cancer ain't far it's a nuclear war
So tell me son why does it matter

I got brain damage from takin' those drugs
Brain damage from smokin' those rugs
All I got to show for my time is just a empty head

I got mind slippage my memory has flown
Mind drippage my fingers been blown
All I got to show for my troubles just what I said

I got brain damage from takin' those drugs
Brain damage from smokin' those rugs
All I got to show for my troubles just what I said


On The Road To Kansas City

(Brewer & Shipley)
On the road to Kansas City
What a strange way to go
Slippin' and slidin' at everybody's door
Like a friend that I used to know
All the good old boys keep a hangin' around
But the women all leave too soon
So I'm givin' up the fight
Cause it's been in my light
Like a cloud rollin''cross the moon

On the road to Kansas City
What a strange site to see
Ziggin' and zaggin' at everybody's door
Like a friend that I used to be
Well I went down to the payroll department
Just to see what I got due
When they burn you for a million
You don't really feel it
When they get you for a dollar you do

On the road in Kansas City
What a strange way to loose
Slippin' n' slidin' n' ziggin' n' zaggin'
Knock the souls right off of my shoes
Well I wailed on down the wide Missouri
And I made it to the other shore
But I'm leavin' tonight
If I make the flight
I got a crowd callin' out for more

On the road
On the road
On the road

All the good old boys keep a hangin' around
But the women all leave too soon
So I'm givin' up the fight
Cause it's been in my light
Like a cloud rollin''cross the moon

On the road
On the road
On the road

All the good old boys keep a hangin' around
But the women all leave too soon
So I'm givin' up the fight
Cause it's been in my light
Like a cloud rollin''cross the moon

On the road
On the road
On the road


Black Sky

(Steve Cash)
Well I sure take it with me everywhere I go
And you might like to see it but it never does show
Like a wind in the valley that never does blow
Like the grass in the back that you never did mow

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

Well you might see me drivin' in the wrong side of town
And you might see me shinin' when the rain's comin' down
Like a diamond that's hidin' in the lost in found
Like a coon that's runnin' from a red bone hound

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

Well the wood keeps burnin' in the old wood stove
And the cows keep goin'where they done been drove
And a light keeps glowin' in a dead man's cove
And a loom keeps spinin' where the weave gets wove

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did


So Satisfied

(Brewer & Shipley)
It was on the Niangua under an Ozark sky
Set adrift on the river my moorings had all become untied
And my questions of feelings were all I had left to decide
I don't know
But I'm so satisfied

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
But I'm so satisfied

It was on the Niangua down where the clear waters hide
Set adrift on the river with nothin' to do but let it ride
And my questions of feelings were all I had left to decide
I don't know
But I'm so satisfied

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
But I'm so satisfied

Yea
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
But I'm so satisfied


Brighter Days

(Brewer & Shipley)
Sing me a song
To take me home
Dream me along
Where my pieces fit and faces are known

Hold out for brighter days
Sold out I caught in the craze
I can't hold out it's only a faze
Got to hold out for brighter days
Hold out for brighter days

Cover my trail
Down to the shore
Roll out my sail
For I shall not look back I will weep no more

Hold out for brighter days
Sold out I caught in the craze
I can't hold out it's only a faze
Got to hold out for brighter days
Hold out for brighter days

Seek not to blame
Or to grieve
Sing my refrain
For it is all I brought everything I leave

Hold out for brighter days
Sold out I caught in the craze
I can't hold out it's only a faze
Got to hold out for brighter days
Hold out for brighter
Hold out for brighter days
Sold out I caught in the craze
I can't hold out it's only a faze
Got to hold out for brighter days
Hold out for brighter days


Crying In The Valley

(Tom Shipley)
I'm reeling in my life
Rollin' out the past
Gathering in the things I know will last
I'm laughing in the rain
Lying in the sun
Feeling like my life has just begun

I'm going down by the bridge tonight
Gonna try to shag off those city lights
And I find myself retreating
In the silence of the hills
Till the crying in the valley has been still

There were times when I've been crazy
Things I knew were wrong
And sadness and confusion in my soul
But you came into my life
A tune so sweet and clear
Sounding just like heaven to my ear

I'm going down by the bridge tonight
Gonna try to shag off those city lights
And I find myself retreating
In the silence of the hills
Till the crying in the valley has been still

I'm going down by the bridge tonight
Gonna try to shag off those city lights
And I find myself retreating
In the silence of the hills
Till the crying in the valley has been still


Rock & Roll Hostage

(Tom Shipley)
Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes
Tied up and bonded beggin' to be free on time
I didn't know what I had to loose
When I started dealin' rhythm and blues
Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes

Sometimes in my darkness
When nothin' is on the line
Waiting for something in my life to shine
I can see the sad reflection
In the eyes of all my friends
And I cannot help but wonder where it ends

Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes
Tied up and bonded livin' off a tune in a rhyme
I didn't know what I had to loose
When I started dealin' rhythm and blues
Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes
Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes
Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes

Rock and roll hostage ransomed for nickels and dimes


Don't It Feel Like Heaven

(Brewer & Shipley)
Don't It Feel Like Heaven
Don't it feel like home
Just a place to make a stand
Good people of my own
And I feel just like a child
When I see my lady smile
When she knows this man of sorrows comin' home

Don't It Feel Like Heaven
Don't it feel the same
Just a place to lay your head
And keep out of the rain
And I feel like breakin' free
Going home where I should be
And I'm glad the one my lady loves is me

And I feel just like a child
When I see my lady smile
When she knows this man of sorrows comin' home

And I feel like breakin' free
Going home where I should be
And I'm glad the one my lady loves is me

Hmmmm


Hearts Overflowing

(Michael Brewer)
Fill your cup
Lift it up to hearts overflowing
Drink to me
And here's to we in love evergrowing

When I need you
I'm out in the rain
When I see you
I light up again

Diamond things
Golden earings all I could beg or borrow
I would pay or throw away
For one of your todays or tommorrows

When I need you
I'm out in the rain
When I see you
I light up again

Fill my cup
Lift me up two hearts overflowin'
Drink to me
And here's to we and love ever growin'
Hmmmmm


Commercial Success

(Steve Cash)
Ahhhh!
I want to be a commercial success
So I can be just like that rest
I want to be a commercial success
So I can be just like that rest
Fame and fortune and a brand new car
I'll own a Lincoln and a New York bar
I won't be happy 'til they call me a star so there

I want to be in a rock 'n roll band
Smokin' dope in the back of a van
I want to be in a rock 'n roll band
Smokin' dope in the back of a van
Rollin' joints and snortin' cocaine
I'll fly to Dallas on a big jet plane
I hear 'em screamin' an' shoutin' my name, so there

I want to be an American dream
And make a million while I'm still in my teens
I want to be an American dream
Make a million while I'm still in my teens
I'll grow my hair 'till it touches my knees
I'll call my banker whenever I please
I'll have a groupie wipe my nose when I sneeze, so there

I want to be a commercial success
So I can be just like the rest
I want to be a commercial success
So I can be just like the rest
Fame and fortune and a brand new car
I'll own a Lincoln and a New York bar
I won't be happy 'til they call me a star so there
oooh


All Along The Watchtower

(Bob Dylan)
There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Businessmen they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
know what any of it is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late

All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too
Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl

All along the watchtower
There must be some way out of here
All along the watchtower
Said the joker to the thief
All along the watchtower
There's too much confusion
All along the watchtower
I can't get no relief
All along the watchtower
Too much confusion
All along the watchtower


Heart Of Steel

(Brewer & Shipley)
Jackie had a baby only no one knew
Angel's dancing topless in St. Paul
Micky got a habit & died without a clue
I'm survivin' day by day but aren't we all

And Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel

Barbra's doing something out in West L.A.
Joann's got a kid & goes to school
Nancy owns a restaurant but still loves to play
And I'm trying not to feel like a fool

Cause Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel

Randy's in the Rockies but I don't know where
Wendy's in the Ozarks tending bar
Lisa's in the islands with her long brown hair
I'm still spinning on my wheels & can't go far

As long as Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel
Diana still has a heart of steel

Make My Bed

(Brewer & Shipley)
You don't have to make my bed if you go down easy
You don't have to light a fire if your heart is true
Just remember what I said if you want to please me

Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed

You don't have to tell a lie or fake a feeling
You don't need to be afraid if you lay it on the line
Just remember what I said that would be like stealing

Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed
Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed

I've heard you in letters & I felt you in laces
I've seen those looks that come over your faces
I reach for passion in the heat of the night
Did it dissappear without a trace
You don't have to make my bed if you go down easy

So get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed
Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed

Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed

I've heard you in letters & I felt you in laces
I've seen those looks that come over your faces
I reach for passion in the heat of the night
Did it dissappear without a trace
You don't have to make my bed if you want to please me

So get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed
Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed
Get it through your head
All the ghosts are dead
You don't have to make my bed

Blue Island Moon

(Brewer & Shipley)
Blue island moon an ocean away
Are you still shining on someone I know
Blue island moon she wanted to stay
But something just called her & she had to go

She had to see if she could survive
Without the lover who kept her alive
She had a dream that ended too soon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon

Blue island moon a fire in the sky
Shine all her sadness away for awhile
She's all alone & dosen't know why
He can't just call her & bring back her smile

She had to see if she could survive
Without the lover who kept her alive
She had a dream that ended too soon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon

She had to see if she could survive
Without the lover who kept her alive
She had a dream that ended too soon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon
Under your spell please wish her well blue island moon


Night People

(Brewer & Shipley)
She leans her breast against a window
Whishing it was a loaded gun
She's growin' tired of barely livin'
Where she rarely feels the sun
She's havin' thoughts of Indiana
And goin' back where she came from
This wicked life in California
She's been havin' too much fun

When the night people come
And the night people go it's a party
When the night people come

She knows the way her parents taught her
It's night & day & right & wrong
But in this tomb they call a city
Where they play a different song
And though she struggles to remember
And tries to keep their vision clear
She's lookin' back into the sunset
As it slowly disappears

The night people come
The night people go it's a party
The night people come

She wants to leave but she knows she needs to find the things she lacks
But everytime the darker side just pulls her back

When the night people come
And the night people go it's a party
When the night people come
The night people come(And they keep on comin')
The night people go(It's an endless party)
The night people come(And the night people come yeah)

Keep on comin' all night long

When the night people come


Dance With A Lady

(Brewer & Shipley)
I think I need to dance with a lady
And everything will be alright
Whichever way the wind blow
She pushes me & I go
But I've been thinkin' mabey
I need to dance with a lady

And look into some big brown eyes
And let em just steal my heart away
I need to hold her tightly
Across a floor politely
Cause I've been thinkin' mabey
I need to dance with a lady

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la

I need to hold her tightly
Across a floor politely
Cause I've been thinkin' mabey
I need to dance with a lady

I think I need to dance with a lady
And everything will be just fine
I need to hold & kiss her
And tell her that I'll miss her
Cause I've been thinkin' lately
I need to dance with a lady

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la

Oh I need to dance (Sha la la la la la la la) with a lady

(Sha la la la la la la la)I want to dance I got to dance I need to dance
With a lady


Streets Of America

(Brewer & Shipley)
We came on the Santa Maria
And we come on the Sloop John B
We keep coming cause we heard there was a place we could be free
From the shores of many nations
We're blown here by the wind
Sweet lady of the harbour won't you kindly let us in

I see so many faces coming here from so many places
For a chance on the streets of America
Leavin' home losing pride
Some suffer some simply die
For a glance at the streets of America

I'm not sure why they call it the land of the free
But I know why they call it the home of the brave

I see sisters & brothers
Trading one heartache for another
And a shot at the streets of America
Those who have they ain't givin'
Those who don't are workin' for a livin'
And forgotten on the streets of America

I'm not sure why they call it the land of the free
But I know why they call it the home of the brave

I hear so many voices
Tellin' me there ain't many choices
When you sleep on the streets of America

I'm not sure why they call it the land of the free
But I know why they call it the home of the brave
I'm not sure why they call it the land of the free
But I know why they call it the home of the brave


Tied To The Wings Of An Angel

(Michael Brewer)
Slip & slide
Skinned alive in the hard times, hard times
I'm just into something good
And it comes to an end
No escape, more red tape
In the sad times, the sad times
So I jump back up on my feet
Try it over again

Cause I'm tied to the wings of an angel
And she's flying away to winds on high
I am wrapped in the love of a lady
And I'm trapped in the magic of her eyes

Sing and shout
You can roll me out for the good times, the good times
When every day's a brand new reason
For being alive
No more shakes and a lot more breaks
In the glad times, the glad times
Just sippin' all the honey from the flower
Like a bee in the hive

Tied to the wings Tied to the wings
Tied to the wings of an angel
Tied to the wings Tied to the wings of love
Tied to the wings Tied to the wings
Tied to the wings of an angel
Tied to the wings Tied to the wings of love
