Where Do The Children Play – Cat Stevens (Lyrics)

Filed under: Children, Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 06:16

 

“Where Do The Children Play”

Well I think it’s fine, building Jumbo planes
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
Switch on summer from a slot machine
Get what you want to if you want, ’cause you can get anything

I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
But they just go on and on, and it seems you can’t get off

Oh, I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
Will you keep on building higher
‘Til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know we’ve come a long way
We’re changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?

Billy don’t be a hero lyrics

Paper Lace Lyrics

“Billy Don’t Be A Hero”

The marchin’ band came down along Maine Street
The soldier-blues fell in behind
I looked across and there I saw Billy
Waiting to go and join the line

And with her head upon his shoulder
His young and lovely fiancee
From where I stood I saw she was cryin’
And through her tears I heard her say:

“Billy, don’t be a hero, don’t be a fool with your life
Billy, don’t be a hero, come back and make me your wife”
And as Billy started to go she said: “Keep your pretty head low
Billy, don’t be a hero, come back to me”

The soldier-blues were trapped on a hillside
The battle raging all around
The sergeant cried: “We’ve gotta hang on, boys
We’ve gotta hold this piece of ground

I need a volunteer to ride out
And bring us back some extra men”
And Billy’s hand was up in a moment
Forgettin’ all the words she said. She said:

“Billy, don’t be a hero, don’t be a fool with your life
Billy, don’t be a hero, come back and make me your wife”
And as Billy started to go she said: “Keep your pretty head low
Billy, don’t be a hero, come back to me”

I heard his fiancee got a letter
That told how Billy died that day
The letter said that he was a hero
She should be proud he died that way
I heard she threw the letter away

Johnny Cash – Don’t Take Your Guns to Town

Johnny Cash Lyrics

“Don’t Take Your Guns To Town”

A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm
A boy filled with wonderlust who really meant no harm
He changed his clothes and shined his boots
And combed his dark hair down
And his mother cried as he walked out

[Chorus]
Don’t take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don’t take your guns to town

He laughed and kissed his mom
And said your Billy Joe’s a man
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
But I wouldn’t shoot without a cause
I’d gun nobody down
But she cried again as he rode away

[Chorus]
Don’t take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don’t take your guns to town

He sang a song as on he rode
His guns hung at his hips
He rode into a cattle town
A smile upon his lips
He stopped and walked into a bar
And laid his money down
But his mother’s words echoed again

[Chorus]
Don’t take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don’t take your guns to town

He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
And tried to tell himself at last, he had become a man
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
And he heard again his mothers words

[Chorus]
Don’t take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don’t take your guns to town

Filled with rage then
Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw
But the stranger drew his gun and fired
Before he even saw
As Billy Joe fell to the floor
The crowd all gathered ’round
And wondered at his final words

[Chorus]
Don’t take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don’t take your guns to town

Ruben James = Kenny Rogers = Greatest Hits

Filed under: Love, Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 07:24

Missed one yesterday, here is the replacement.

 

“Reuben James”

Reuben James
In my song you live again
And the phrases that I rhyme
Are just the footsteps out of time
From the time when I knew you, Reuben James
Reuben James
All the folks around Madison County cussed your name
Just a no-account, sharecropping colored man
Who would steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Flora Grey
The gossip of Madison County died with child
And although your skin was black
You were the one that didn’t turn your back
On the hungry white child with no name
Reuben James

Reuben James
With your mind on my soul and a Bible in your right hand
You said, “Turn the other cheek. Well there’s a better world a-waiting for the meek”
In my mind these words remain from Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Reuben James
One dark, cloudy day they brought you from the field
Until your lonely pine box came
Just a preacher and me in the rain
Just to sing one last refrain for Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Reuben James
For you still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now
Reuben James

Billy Joel – She’s Always a Woman (Audio)

Filed under: Love, Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 07:19

 

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see

She hides like a child but she’s always a woman to me

She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth but she’ll never believe you
And she’ll take what you give her as long as it’s free
Yeah she steals like a thief but she’s always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she’ll promise you more than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding

But she’ll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself cause she’s always a woman to me

Mmm
Mmm

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she’s nobody’s fool
But she can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me

Mmm
Mmm

Creedence Clearwater Revival: Bad Moon Rising

Filed under: Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music, Things I like — Scottie @ 10:51

 

I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today
Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin
Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
I hope you got your things together
I hope you are quite prepared to die
Look’s like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye
Oh don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Dance Little Jean

Filed under: Children, Family, Love, Song, Songs and Music, Things I like — Scottie @ 07:24

 

Dance Little Jean
I played a wedding for the money,
And I wished that I could tell the bride and groom
Just what I thought of marriage
And what’s in store after their honeymoon.
And I was grumblin’ to the dancers
‘Bout how men and women ought to live apart
And how a promise never made can not be broken
And can never break your heart
When suddenly from out of nowhere,
A little girl came dancing ‘cross the floor,
And all her crinolines were billowing
Beneath the skirt of calico that she wore.
Oh what a joy fell on the honored guests
As each of them was drawn inside her dream,
And they laughed and clapped and stomped their feet
And hollered at her “dance little jean”
Dance, little jean, this day is for you,
Two people you love, stood up and said “I do”
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had
Was answered today
Your mama’s marrying your dad
Well, my cynical heart just melted
‘Cause I knew what this get together meant
How it ended year of tears and sad confusion
That the little girl had spent.
Well they told the band to pack it up
About the time the couple cut the cake,
But we played as long as they stayed
For love and laughs and little jeanie’s sake.
Dance, little jean, this day is for you,
Two people you love, stood up and said “I do”
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had
Was answered today
Your mama’s marrying your dad

John Anderson Lyrics

“Seminole Wind”

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.
