And The Band Played On Lyrics

Did you hear gaberial blow his horn?
Then what sent those blackbirds on the wing
Into this house we were born to leave
Like an arrow shot over the mountain
Like a bottle tossed in the sea
I have journeyed, I have traveled
Now home calls me

Chorus:
Let's all gather round the grand piano
Let's all raise our glasses in the air
Give a cheer to the jolly good fellows
And everyone who's cared

Who will mend this wagon wheel?
To get this show on the road
The music sounds just like it feels

Chorus

And the band played on
Through the storm
Through the wicked wicked rain
And the band played on
In golden harmony

What straw will break this camels back?
Will we grow to love the load
Can't wait to be what time reveals

Chorus

Make Glad Lyrics

Ballad and dagger
Amazing grace
Sons of rock bottom
Take your rightful place
Gold tooth and top hat
Ace up your sleeve
Show me your pistol so i will believe

Chorus:
Make glad
Find the beauty in the broken
Make glad
May your heart always be open
Make glad
Keep an eye out for your brother
Make glad
And i will see you in the other

Turpentine babies
With one foot in the south
Turned out the turn key
For runnin his mouth
Jump say the sheriff
Get up outta that hole
Get in line and do what your told
Chorus

Peace Anyway Lyrics

You're not promised a hot meal
It's just another raw deal
Just another rainy day, everyday yeah
So you say that you cannot relate
No, no its not up for debate
You know your bills they cannot wait
But you still have time

CHORUS:
You'll find peace anyway
You'll find peace anyway

Just got to look baby, alright
Listen

So your bright eyes, they don't shine
And your watch, it don't keep time
Well guess what, neither does mine
Neither does mine
It just makes you want to cry
Just drink it all and say goodnight
But giving up don't make it right
alright, alright

CHORUS

And well I know that you might get so scared
Well, about what you find
What it means to you baby when you get there

CHORUS
CHORUS (repeated)

Halfway To Everywhere Lyrics

You could be so energy
Electricity
You could be lightening
You could be anything
A masterpiece
A revolutionary
You can see what you want to see
Can you let it be?
Learn or teach

I'm only halfway to everywhere

I'm thinking positivety
Positively
This is possible
They can say right or wrong
Never hear this song
Or look you in the eye
I'm getting rid of negativity
Lose the loss in me
Call it equality
Good luck is a frame of mind
Call it humankind
And say it's destiny

Greenhorn Lyrics

Greenhorn dreams of salty seas
Of maidens fair and lovely
Who beckon and call
From emerald walls
Of cities far and strange
Greenhorn hears melodies
From mountaintops and low valleys
Of chimney smoke and easter’s hope
And love not lost in vain

Chorus:
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Before i see the world
Under darkening skies
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes

Greenhorn feels the cold wind blow
And now he knows it’s time to go
Now he longs for open roads
He longs to leave the pines
And leave he will with a tearful eye
But he won’t stop to wave goodbye
He won’t stop to look behind
On just what used to be

Days to years child to man
Lonely fears she understands

Chorus:
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Before i see the world
Under darkening skies
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes

Fork In The River Lyrics

The wine may have gone sour
But you can't blame the band
Like you can't blame the locusts
For draught on the land
You can't blame the sea
‘Cause it's full of your tears
And you can't blame me
For wanting you here

Chorus:
There's a fork in the river
No time to think twice
A change in the weather
So keep close an eye
A hissing in the wood pile
A voice on the wind
A fork in the river
Is where we begin

I once found a rainbow
Lyin' flat on the ground
But i just kept walkin'
Thinking more were around
The buzzard, the joker,
The beggar, the throne
The roses, the sugar,
No safe passage home

Chorus

Girl From The North Country Lyrics

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

The Shady Grove Lyrics

Meet me by the banks of the sweet primrose
And we’ll follow it down
To the shady grove
Bonnie blow the breeze by the cabin door
No two lovers could ask for more
So grab your fiddle and your old banjo
Play a country blues so sweet and slow
We’ll sing along to the drunkards doom
And rock all night by the silvery moon

These old trees grow straight to heaven
So it goes in the shady grove

When the old hen crackles
And the ground gets cold
Our fine buck skin
Dances through the snow
We’ll take to town on a saturday night
You and me baby make such a sight

Whiskey wine name your pleasure
So it goes in the shady grove

Hey boys gather round we’ll put it up
They’ll tear it down
Heay boys rockabye
Kiss the pretty girls goodbye

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
Hey boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

When the fish start biting
At the new may flies
And the muddy roads have all done dried
The honeysuckle says it’s summertime
That old yellow sun is mighty kind

Hear the seasons come with reasons
So it goes in the shady grove

Won’t you be my lullaby babe
In this sweet bye and bye babe
It’s okay to cry let the sadness pass you by
And know i’ll always love you babe

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
He boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

High Head Blues Lyrics

Sometimes I have a ghetto in my mind
Other times sunshine high head fine
In between I get cold, old mean
Intertwined with country pride open and kind
This draws a line

Sorry to coin a phrase
On either side is wisdom and rage
So keeping track of time
Racing with my age
Sleeping with the snakes
Forget that you showed up late
It ain't worth it baby

Chorus:
A charmed life it is
At least they tell you so
I got a good idea
It ain't like they say is so
And if it is then let me go
Let me go

Any day there might be hell to pay
But in other ways
It makes it seem ok
I'll tell you what I mean
It's not a plot nor a scheme
It's just peace in my mind
Again can I use the word kind
I ain't sorry about it baby

Chorus

I Ain't Hiding Lyrics

Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on a blade
Nyc delivers that's a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside
Do the rest in the car
Hard candy babies in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybody's uptight,
That's right

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Stayed on the dance floor
'Cause you can't find the door
Can't run out 'cause there's always more
Keep on rocking 'cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

I ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

What Is Home Lyrics

As i stare into the frozen starlight
My hands burn with the scars of past lives
I see past all the falling chimneys

Home to me
What is home to me

As i charge into the foothills of your life
I stand under the fading sunlight
Hope it will return next morning

Home to me
What is home to me
I can't wait to find
A home for me

Silence gauge me, into my soul
I approach you this morning,
Which one will you be
You're far more important
Than you know to me

As i stare into the frozen sunlight
My hands burn with the scars of past lives
I see past all the falling chimneys

Home for me
What is home for me
I can't wait to find
A home for me

A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound Lyrics

As i listen to the wheels
Hear them going round and round
It reminds me of the trains
That still makes a lonely sound
It reminds me of the girl
That came from knoxville town
And how on that april day
When she took this old boy down

Chorus:
Oh tennessee you got me runnin’
And i’m not coming back this time
Way out west is where i’m going
To forget the one i left behind

Well i might have seen moses
Standin’ on the penn state line
Just another wanderer
With an angel on his mind
I know love has it’s reasons
The way it comes and it goes
There’s no mystery in seasons
Or of this hard cold road

A Conspiracy Lyrics

Did you ever hear
The one about last year
It was all a lie
Ain't it funny how the time flies
What we gonna do baby
What is left for us to prove
I've never stolen nothing, not a thing
Tried to stay away from this year's
Big thing
Ain't as easy as it seems
To find a mutual dream
Can you tell me wrong from right
Do you know when to freeze or take flight
Can you tell me more or less
I got to know confess

Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy
Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy

Now you got a question about your answer
Say try your adam's apple
You talk it try it bite it right
So now you want to fight? Ok
Let's step outside
I got tradition it's an addition
My definition it don't hold me back
Well what you think about that
What you don't understand
This is a very old land
Can you tell me wrong from right
Do you know when to freeze or take flight
Can you tell me more or less
I got to know confess

Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy
Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Been A Long Time Lyrics

Earthbound wingless dream
Child born to necessity
Tied to crimson velvet wings
She flies
New moon midnight star
Medicine is in the jar
Head full of going far
She flies
Lost out on the dream road
Looking for a key hole
Never try to fight it
Feeling right inside it

Low country blushing bride
Blind to the ways of time
Clear crystal burning mind
She flies
Falling through liquid air
With music everywhere
Stone faces silent stare
She flies
The old guard on the hill
Can feel the chill
Deep into the freeze of
Those who don't believe

Chorus
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love

Damp with this morning dew
The world is bright and new
Her word is always true
She flies
Step into the new day
Right over the old way
We are the horizon
See our future smiling

There's Gold In Them Hills Lyrics

On the first day of winter
I was set to leave
With the lost art of true love in my eye
Through wild frontier
With outlaws and thieves
To find me a mountain in the sky

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

On the last day of spring
I first saw the sea
A poor boy with good luck on my side
Ready for riches
I rolled up my sleeve
And took my first step
Down in he mine

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

Hid my wallet
Same old pocket
Sixteen dollars
Brand new shoes
Empty bottle
Satin garters
What's a country boy to do?

Tell dear mother that I miss her
But things are different now
There's nothing I can do
Your dark-haired son is now long gone
Remember me
When you stare at the moon

Broken my heart
For diamonds and gold
Through scandal, through madness
Through cold
All I have left is this grey in my beard
This mountain and the stories that I've told

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

Waiting Guilty Lyrics

Oh mother, tell me, have you ever cried
Shed a tear and never wondered why
Worried feeling leave a warm man dry
Restless thunder, baby, rolls across the sky

CHORUS:
Waitin guilty, baby, wanna send me home
Waitin guilty
Waitin guilty, baby, gotta send me home

So never ever wanna waste my time
See me living just abunch of lies
Hanging jury want to look my way
I ain't playin' baby you know it ain't my game

CHORUS
Waitin guilty
CHORUS (repeat)

On whoa, yea, yeah

CHORUS
Waitin guilty
CHORUS
