Old Crow Medicine Show - Take 'Em Away Lyrics

(Chorus
Take Ďem away, take Ďem away, Lord
Take away these chains from me
My heart is broken Ďcause my spiritís not free
Lord take away these chains from me

Some birdsí feathers are too bright to be caged
I know Iím not that colorful but a bird just the same
Open up your gate now, let me put down my load
So I can feel at ease and go back to my home

(Chorus)

Sun beatiní down, my legs canít seem to stand
Thereís a boss man at a turnrow with a rifle in his hand
Iíve got nine child, nothiní in the pan
My wife she died hungry while I was plowiní land

(Chorus)

Canít see when I go to work, canít see when I get off
How do you expect a man not to get lost
Every year I just keep getting deeper in debt
If thereís a happy day, Lord, I havenít seen one yet

(Chorus)

Land that I love is the land that Iím workiní
But itís hard to love it all the time when your back is a-hurtiní
Gettiní too old now to push this here plow
Please let me lay down so I can look at the clouds

(Chorus)

Land that I know is where two rivers collide
The Brazos the Navaso and the big blue sky
Flood plains, freight trains, watermelon vines
Of any place on Godís green earth, this is where I choose to die

(Chorus)

Train of Love

Train of love's a comin' big black wheels're hummin'
People waitin' at the station happy hearts're drummin'
Train men tell me maybe ain't she got my baby

Ever so often everybody's baby gets the urge to roam
But everybody's baby but mine's coming home

Now stop your whistle blowin' cause I've got ways of knowin'
You're bringin' other people's lovers but my own keeps goin'
Train of love deceivin' when she's not gone she's leavin'

Ever so often everybody's baby...
[ guitar ]
Train of love now hasten sweethearts stand and waitin'
Here and there and everywhere there'll gonna be embracin'
Train men tell me maybe ain't she got my baby

Ever so often everybody's baby...
[ guitar ]
Train of love's a leavin' leavin' my heart grievin'
But early or late I sit and wait because I'm still believin'
We'll walk away together though I may wait forever

Ever so often everybody's baby...

Chris Kristofferson - Help Me Make It Throught The Night

Take the ribbon from your hair, shake it loose and let it fall,
Layiní soft upon my skin. like the shadows on the wall.

Come and lay down by my side till the early morning light
All Iím takiní is your time. help me make it through the night.
I donít care whatís right or wrong, I donít try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow. lord, tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrowís out of sight.
And itís sad to be alone. help me make it through the night.

I donít care whatís right or wrong, (yes, I do !)
I donít try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow. lord, tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrowís out of sight.
Lord, itís bad to be alone. help me make it through the night.

One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One love)
Hear the children crying (One heart)
Sayin', "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right."
Sayin', "Let's get together and feel all right."
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One love)
There is one question I'd really love to ask (One heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One love)
So shall it be in the end (One heart)
Alright, "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right."
"Let's get together and feel all right."
One more thing

Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One love)
So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (One song)
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation

Sayin', "One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right."
I'm pleading to mankind (One love)
Oh, Lord (One heart) Whoa.

"Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right."
Let's get together and feel all right.
(Repeat)

Artist: Bryan Adams Lyrics
Song: Everything I Do) I Do It For You Lyrics



Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Look into your heart - you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am - take my life
I would give it all - I would sacrifice

Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more
Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way

Oh - you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you - I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you - ya I'd die for you

Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Cygnus....Vismund Cygnus Mars Volta lyrics


Artist: Mars Volta
Album: Frances The Mute
Year: 2005
Title: Cygnus....Vismund Cygnus



a. SARCOPHAGI
b. UMBILICAL SYLLABES
c. FACILIS DESCERNUS AVERNI
d. CON SAFO

The ocean floor is hidden
From your viewing lens
A depth perception
Languished in the night
All my life,Iíve been
Sewing the wounds
But the seeds sprout
A lachrymal cloud

Nino preparate
Que vas sufrir
Nino preparate
Salte veneno
Nino preparate
Salte de aqui
Nino preparate
Labios temblando
Nino preparate
Salte veneno
Nino preparate
Salte de aqui
Nino preparate
Brincan los cuerpos
Vas a sufrir

My nails peel back
When the taxidermist ruined
Goose stepped the freckling impatience
All the brittle tombs
Five hundred little qís
Iím splitting hairs to
Match the faces

All night long Iíll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia naci

Now this train donít lie
An abortion that survived
A lineage of
Bastard mastacation
All the severed proof
Talons scratch my suite
These are the feathers
That replace them

All night Iíll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia nacŪ

Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb
I found the remnants
Of a crescent fang
It cleaned my wing
Down to the bone
Umbilical syllables
Left to decode
There was no cradle
I can taste it
Come on now

All night Iíll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia naci

Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb
Bring me this plague
She took a drink
Those nicotine stains
On his every word
My scavenger quilt
Will only hide the truth
Bring me
Bring me this plague
I count the days to find
What was left behind
Only these names I clutch
Will lead me to my home
Somehow this river marks
A wrinkle hand in mine
And everyday that parts
The water into two
Mothers and feathers start
To drown the living proof
I canít remember these lakes of blood
Wrapped in a blanket
There sweats a cut
Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb

Big & Rich - Real World

There's a girl on channel 13
I know she's gonna fall in love with me
And I'm gonna win the lottery tomorrow
Or the next day
I drive a Mercedes Benz
Ive got a whole butt load of friends
I'm gonna be on CMT someday

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

I got more money then George Strait
I throw benjies out the window all day
Just to see how far they fly, bye bye
I get more girls then the president
Mom and dad still pay the rent
And I throw parties all night long

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

they use stream of conciousness writing
the music varies from slow and mournfull to prog-rock guitar instrumental sections to rock-salsa- to experimental electronic in a cut and jump editing pattern--all within the space 0f 0ne song

its jolting but stimulating
the guitarist is particularly interesting often mutitracking 4-5 conflicting guitar lines at once-- giving a strange chaotic melange that somehow works-- its NOT easy listening--- it grows on you--

its VERY TRIPPY music --

Elephant Talk
(King Crimson)

Talk, itís only talk
Arguments, agreements, advice, answers,
Articulate announcements
Itís only talk

Talk, itís only talk
Babble, burble, banter, bicker bicker bicker
Brouhaha, boulderdash, ballyhoo
Itís only talk
Back talk

Talk talk talk, itís only talk
Comments, cliches, commentary, controversy
Chatter, chit-chat, chit-chat, chit-chat,
Conversation, contradiction, criticism
Itís only talk
Cheap talk

Talk, talk, itís only talk
Debates, discussions
These are words with a d this time
Dialogue, dualogue, diatribe,
Dissention, declamation
Double talk, double talk

Talk, talk, itís all talk
Too much talk
Small talk
Talk that trash
Expressions, editorials, expugnations, exclamations, enfadulations
Itís all talk
Elephant talk, elephant talk, elephant talk

Is it ok if I call you mine?

Is it okay if I call you mine
Just for a time?
And I will be just fine
If I know that you know
That I'm wanting, needing your love,

If I ask of you, is it alright
If I ask you to hold me tight
Through a cold, dark night?
'Cause there may be a cloudy day in sight
And I need to let you know
That I might be needing your love,

And what I'm trying to say isn't really new
It's just the things that happen to me
When I'm reminded of you

Like when I hear your name
Or see a place that you've been
Or see a picture of your grin
Or pass a house that you've been in one time or another
It sets off something in me I can't explain
And I can't wait to see you again
Oh babe, I love your love,

And what I'm trying to say isn't really new
It's just the things that happen to me
When I'm reminded of you

The Mars Volta song is from a concept album called Frances the Mute, about a man named Vismund Cygnus. Great album!

My favourite song lyrics are also from a Bob Marley song:

-Redemption Song-

Old pirates, yes, they rob i;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took i
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the íand of the almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Wonít you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
ícause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
ícause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? ooh!
Some say itís just a part of it:
Weíve got to fulfil de book.

Wonít you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
ícause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! have no fear for atomic energy,
ícause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say itís just a part of it:
Weíve got to fulfil de book.
Wonít you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
ícause all I ever had:
Redemption songs -
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

Screw the GST!

Worms Arrogant Lyrics - The Last Saskatchewan Pirate Lyrics

Oh, I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine,
I had a little stretch of land along the city line
But time went by and though I tried, the money wasn't there
And bankers came and took my land and told me fair is fair
I looked for every kind of job, the answer always "no"
Hire you now, they'd always laugh, we just let twenty go!
The government, they offered me a measly little sum
But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum.
And so I thought who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone
I'm gonna be a PIRATE! on the river Saskatchewan!

Chorus:
And it's a heave-ho! hi-ho!
Coming down the plains
Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
And it's a ho-hey! hi-hey!
Farmers bar your doors when you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.
Arr!

Well you think the locals farmers would know that I'm at large
But, just the other day I found an unprotected barge
I suck up right behind them and they were none the wiser,
I rammed their ship, and sank it, and I stole their fertilizer!
A bridge outside of Moosejaw spans a mighty river
The farmers pass in so much fear, their stomachs are a-quiver
Because the know that TRACTOR JACK! is hiding in the bay,
I'll jump the bridge and knock them cold and sail off with their hay!

Chorus

Well Mountie Bob he chased me, hey was always at my throat
He'd follow on the shoreline 'cuz he didn't own a boat
But cutbacks were a-coming so the mountie lost his job
Now he's sailing with me and we call him Salty Bob.
A swingin' sword, and sull n' bones, and pleasant company
I never pay the income tax and screw the GST- SCREW IT!
Prince Albert down to Saskatoon, I'm the terror of the sea
If ya wanna reach the Co-op, boy, you gotta get by me!

Chorus

Arrrrr matey! Get it? Metis? Ha-ha, that's Riel-ly funny! You know? Louis Riel?

Well, pirate life's appealing. but you don't just find it here
I've heard that in Alberta, there's a band of bucchaneers
They roam the Athabasca, from Smith to Fort McKay
And you're gonna lose your stetson if you have to pass their way
Well winter is a-coming and a chill is in the breeze
Our pirate days are over when the river starts to freeze
I'll be back in springtime, but now I have to go,
I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico

"Ring of Fire" Based on the performance by Johnny Cash
"Stings Like Fire" Parody by Rick Duncan


'Roids are a burning ring
And it makes my sphincter sing
Prep "H" I require
My affliction sure stings like fire

My poor brown eye sure burns and stings like fire
Can't sit down, down, down
Without my rubber tire
And my bum, bum, bum
Sure stings like fire
Sure stings like fire

The waste don't pass on through
(With)out a big to-doo
I get ice at every chance
And stick it down my pants

My poor butt hole sure burns and stings like fire
Can't sit down, down, down
Without my rubber tire
And my bum, bum, bum
Sure stings like fire
Sure stings like fire

Bird on a wire by Leonard Cohen

Like a bird
Bird on a wire
Like a drunk
In a midnight choir
I have tried in my way
To be free

Like a worm
Worm on a hook
Like a knight
In some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons
For thee

And if I
If I have been unkind
I hope you can let it go by
And if I
Have been untrue
I hope you know
It was never to you

Like a baby
Baby stillborn
Like a beast
Beast with his horn
I have torn everyone
Who reached out for me

But I swear
Swear by this song
And by all
All I've done wrong
I will make it all up
All up to thee.

one more verse I forget.

One of my sons and I played that for a drinking audience one night, and had a bunch of them crying in their beer. Booze does prick the unwary conscience, n'est pas?

I like this one, I just dont understand why no-one uses this half of the song these days!!(can you guess....without looking it up, what it is?):

"The locusts are singing, the sun is red
It's gotten so late somehow
There's gonna be trouble, you know what they said
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
There's gonna be danger, God I wish we were back
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by... now....
(ooh, aah)...."

House In Virginia - Brendan Benson

This song makes me so homesick, which is really weird considering I've never actually been to Virginia...

House in Virginia
We'd love to see you, Emma
Red velvet chairs
For you to sit on, Emma

Blue colbat teacups
Every shape, every size, your favourite designs
White flawed enamel pots
And a place on the shelf for everything you've got

When are you coming to stay?
Say that you'll never go away

Porch swings and everything
Your favourite pets, they're everywhere
Willow trees and a cool breeze
Lemonade, freshly squeezed

Sun-thickened linseed oil
A studio equipped for brooding
Alcohol and turpentine
Somehow you find it soothing

When are you coming to stay?
Say that you'll never go away

She stands at the full-length
Admiring herself in her grandmother's hat
She says when she gets the strength
She's flying away and she's never coming back
