Bring It On Home [Sam Cooke]

  If you ever change your mind

About leavin', leavin' me behind

Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin'

Bring it on home to me

 

I give her jewelry and money too

But that ain't all i would do for you

Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin'

Bring it on home to me

 

You know i try, try to treat her right

But she stayed uot stayed out late at night (but i forgive her)

Bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin'

Bring it on home to me

 

I give her jewelry and money too

But that ain't all i would do for you

Oh, bring it to me, bring your sweet lovin'

Bring it on home to me

 

 

Cold Feet  [R.Cotrill]

  Hmm yes oh my, my, donít have to be told

Keep your feets away from me, baby your feets is cold

 

Now i donít know what is the rage , why do we grow old

All i know is bout your feet and baby your feets is cold

 

Well shukin and jivin all night long down at the bar with you

Take you home to bed with me but baby leave on your shoes

 

(spoken)

Now darlin you know i love you, but we got to do something about your pedal extremities

Theyíre extremely frigid, youíre redefining the word chilly dogs

 

Gonna sell the far and move to town get a job in a factory

Honey i donít make near enough for you and me to eat

 

But in my mind i donít have time to worry about my load

Cos your sweet lovinís all i need but baby your feets is cold

 

 

House Of The Rising Sun  [Traditional]

 

There is a house in new orleans they call it the rising sun

And itís been the ruin of many a poor boy and lord i know iím one

 

My mother was a tailor, she sewed my new blue jeans

My father is a gambliní man way down in new orleans

 

Now the only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and a trunk

And the only time heíll be satisfied is when heís on a drunk

 

Now motherís tell your children not to do what i have done

To spend your life in sin and misery in the hose of the rising sun

 

Well i got one foot on the platform the other foot on the train

And iím goiní back to new orleans to wear that ball and chain

 

There is a house in new orleans they call it the rising sun

And itís been the ruin of many a poor boy and lord i know iím one

 

 

Drift Away  [Williams, Mentor]

 

Day after day iím more confused

Yet i look for the light through the pourin rain

You know thatís a game that i hate to lose

And iím feelin the strain, ainít it a shame

 

Oh give me the beat boys and free my soul

I want to get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Oh give me the beat boys and free my soul

I want to get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

 

Beginnin to think that iím wastin time

I donít understand the things i do

The world outside looks so unkind

Now iím countin on you to carry me through

 

And when my mind is free

You know a melody can move me

And when iím feelin blue

A guitarís comin through to soothe me

 

Thanks for the joy that youíve givin me

I want you to know i believe in your song

Rhythm and rhyme and harmony

Youíve helped me along, makin me strong

 

Na, na, na, wonít cha take meÖ oh take me

 

 

Ghost Riders In The Sky  [Stanley Jones] 

                                                      

An old cowboy went ridiní out one dark and windy day

Up on a ridge he rested as he went on his way

When all at once a mighty herd, of red eyed cows he saw

Ploughing through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

 

Their brands were still on fire

 and their hooves were made of steel

Their horns were black and shinny

 and their hot breath he could feel

A bolt of fear went through him

As they thundered through the sky

For he saw the riders cominí

And he heard their mournful cry

 

Yippee-yi-yo,  yip, yipee-yi a

Ghost riders in the sky

 

Their faces gaunt their eyes were blurred

Their shirts all s0oaked with sweat

They were ridin hard to catch that herd

But they ainít caught Ďem yet

Cosí they got to ride forever

On that range up in they sky

Old horses snortiní fire

As they ride on hear their cry

 

As the riders rode on by him

He heard one call his name

If you want to save your soul from hell

A ridiní on our range

Then cowboy change your ways today

Or with us you will ride

Tryin to catch the devilís herd

Across these endless skies

 

Till I Gain Control Again   [Rodney J. Crowell]

 

Just like the sun over the mountain top

You know iíll always come again

You know i love to spend my morning time

Like sunlight dancing on your skin

 

I've never gone so wrong as to telling lies to you

What you've seen is what i've been

There is nothing i could hide from you

You see me better than i can

 

Out on the road that lies before me now

There are some turns where i will spin

I only hope that you can hold me now

Till i can gain control again

 

Like a lighthouse you must stand alone

Landmark the sailor's journeys end

No matter what sea i've have been sailing on

I'll always roll this way again

 

Out on the road that lies before me now

There are some turns where i will spin

I only hope that you can hold me now

Till i can gain control again
i only hope that you can hold me now
till i can gain control again

 

My Girl  [Robinson, William, Robin White]

 

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

And when it's cold outside, i've got the month of may

 

Chorus:

I guess you say,

What can make me feel this way?

My girl...

 

Talkin' 'bout my girl

 

I've got so much honey oh the bees envy me

I've got a sweeter song (baby), than the birds in the trees

(chorus)

 

I don't need no money, fortune or fame

I've got all the riches, baby, one man can claim

(chorus) 2x

 

 

 

My Best Friend    [Words Ed Ireland Music Erick Traplin]

 

 

We all make friends, they come and go

Some we forget why we donít know

When i found you, i wanted you for life

I asked you that question, will you be my wife

 

We were young when we met, we were only just teens

We felt so in love as we talked about dreams

We vowed to each other to love till the end

That day in june i married my best friend

Oohh, i marreid my best freind    

 

You make it easy for me to shine, you deserve more attention

Itís about time

You give me so much, our lives are like one

And i thank you,  for the gift of two sons

 

We were young when we met, we were only just teens

We felt so in love as we talked about dreams

We vowed to each other to love till the end

That day in june i married my best friend

Oohh, i marreid my best freind    

 

 

Weíve come so far, since way back then

Youíre not just my wife, youíre my best friend

 

Iíve tried so hard, with this poem of mine

To expess my love and end in a rhyme

I just hope, your love will always be mine

For mine is all yours to end of my time

 

We were young when we met, we were only just teens

We felt so in love as we talked about dreams

We vowed to each other to love till the end

That day in june i married my best friend

Oohh, i marreid my best freind    

 

(we were young when we met, we were only just teens

We felt so in love as we talked about dreams)Ö  keep repeating

 

I married my best friend

I married my best friend

 i married my best friend  oohhh  youíre, youíre my best friend

 

 

Save The Last Dance For Me  [Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman]

 

You can danceÖ every dance with the guy who gave you the eye

Let him hold you tight

You can smile Ö every smile for the man who held your hand

Ďneath the pale moonlight

But donít forget whoís taking you home  and in whose arms youíre gonna be

So darling save the last dance for me

 

Oh, i knowÖ that the musicís fine like sparkling wine

Go and have your fun

Laugh and singÖ but while weíre apart, donít give your heart

To anyone Ö. And

 

Baby donít you know i love you so

Canít you feel it when we touch

I will never, never let you go

I love you oh so much

 

You can danceÖ go and carry on till the night is gone

And itís time to go

If he asksÖ if youíre all alone,  can he take you home

You must tell him knowÖ cos

 

Reach Out  [Erick Traplin]

 

When the sun goes down, at the end of the day

And the stars come out so bright

I wonder if, thereís a world out there, where everything is right

Is there someone there, just like me, looking up in awe

And dreaming of the dayÖoh that they

Can reach out and touch the stars

 

If i could reach out, and touch the stars

Iíd bring back the light

And spread it out, from sea to sea

Make everything all right

And i hunger for this vision, that dances in my heart

If i could only reach out, only reach out,

Reach out and touch the stars

 

Thereís be no war, thereís be no sorrow

Thereíd be no hunger, no fear of tomorrow

The sick would be well, the hatred would heal

The love would be all, this world would feel

If i could reach out, if i could reach out

If i could reach out, and touch the stars

 

The sick would be well, the hatred would heal

The love would be all, this world would feel

If i could reach out, if i could reach out

If i could reach out, and touch the stars

 

Touch the stars

Iíd bring back the light

Iíd make everything alright

If i could reach out, and touch the stars

Touch the stars

Ooooooohhh 

 

Into The Mystic  [Van Morrison ]

 

We were born before the wind

also younger than the sun

everybodyís boat was one

as we sailed, into the mystic



hark, now hear the sailor's cry

smell the sea, and feel the sky

let your soul and spirit fly

into the mystic.



And when that foghorn blows,

you know I will be comin' home,

and when that foghorn blows,

Iíve  got to hear it, i don't have to fear it

  

I  wanna rock you gypsy soul

just like way back in the days of old

than magnificently we will float

into the mystic



when that foghorn blows, 

you know I will be comin' home

and when that foghorn whistle blows,

Iíve got to hear it, i don't have to fear it

                                                                          

and I wanna rock your gypsy soul

just like way back in the days of old

and together we will float

into the mystic
