007a-ANOTHER TRY – C1 Re m

America

 

Hey,

Daddy just lost his pay
What did he do it for
It never made it through our door

He drank the whole week

away
And what can a family say
There must be a better way
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try


Pick up the telephone
Tell him you want him home
To sit and watch the evenings pass
And readin' the Leaves of Grass

I'm caught in a closing door
It's pinning me to the floor
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

 

I'm caught in a closing door
It's pinning me to the floor
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

When we're old and gray
And the things we say

are the things we really mean

So why cause a scene
When things ain't what they seem
'Cause the end result's the same

Now what can a family say
There must be a better way
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

007c-THE BORDER – C1 Si m

America

 

You must be lost in a far away land
I searched forever your footprints in the sand
I feel you need me, I have to answer
That desperate call that I do not understand

A burning bridge, a lonely highway
Another dark night thinking alone
What could've happened, am I just dreaming
It doesn't matter but there's one thing that I know

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I'd be in the arms of the girl I love the most


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border

So on and on I keep on running
To make the border before the light
Just one more river, then I can make it
Again you'll be in my arms tonight

 

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I'd be in the arms of the girl I love the most

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I'd be in the arms of the girl I love the most

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border ...

008a-A HORSE WITH NO NAME – Mi m

America

 

On the first part of the journey

I was looking at all the life

There were plants and birds

and rocks and things

There was sand and hills and rings

 

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz

And the sky with no clouds

The heat was hot and the ground was dry

But the air was full of sound.

 

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

La, la...

 

After two days in the desert sun

My skin began to turn red

After three days in the desert fun

I was looking at a river bed

 

And the story it told of a river that flowed

Made me sad to think it was dead.

 

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

La, la...

 

After nine days I let the horse run free

'Cause the desert had turned to sea

There were plants and birds and rocks and things

There was sand and hills and rings

 

The ocean is a desert with its life underground

And a perfect disguise above

Under the cities lies a heart made of ground

But the humans will give no love.

 

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

La, la...

008b-BELL TREE – Re M

America

 

Eyes
Holdin’ back the tears
That they’ve held for years
How can I tell you?
I don’t want to make you cry
Why should I even try?

 
Why should I even try? …

Days
Where’d you go so fast
Fin’lly lost at last
How can I tell you?
I don’t want to let you down
Why should I even try?


Why should I even try? …

How can I tell you?
I don’t want to let you down
Why should I even try?


Why should I even try?...

 

007b-DONKEY JAW – Mi m

America

 

Ah, get behind me Satan…

quit ravishing the land

does it take the children…

to make you understand?

 

Ah, all across the nation people don't understand

does it take the children to make a better land?

 

Then, get behind me Satan…

quit ravishing the land

 

Does it take the children  to make you understand?

does it take the children to make a better land?

008c-RIVERSIDE – La M

America

 

Living on the riverside

taking it all in my stride
living on the riverside,

i'm taking life

like a big long ride


you stay on your side

and i'll stay on mine
you take what you want

and i'll take the sunshine


Dit dit dit dit do ...

Dit dit dit dit do ...

Dit dit dit dit do ...

Dit dit dit dit do ...


aaaah, aaaah


I said the world don't owe me no living
i said the world don't owe me no living
i said the world don't owe me no living
i said the world don't owe me no living

 

009a-DONT CROSS THE RIVER – Mi m

 America

 

There's a little girl out lying on her own

she's got a broken heart

she's not the kind to take you down for long

she knows and plays it smart

 

And if she's comin' she's shown no mark

she's heard no whistle blowin' from the dark

she feels like leavin' and she don't know why

without no bridges she's trapped, so i sigh

 

Don't cross the river if you can't swin the tide

don't try denying livin' on the other side

all your life

you were on your own

 

And if you want you can ride my train

and soon forget the reason that you're leavin'

you'll lose yourself and then some time

maybe even save yourself some grievin'

 

Don't cross the river if you can't swin the tide

don't try denying livin' on the other side

all your life you were on your own

009b-LONELY PEOPLE – Sol M

America

 

This is for all the lonely people

Thinking that life passed them by

Don't give up until you

drink from a silver cup

And ride that highway in the sky.

 

This is for all the single  people

Thinking that life passed them by

Don't give up Until you

drink from a silver cup

You never know until you try.

 

Well, I'm on my way

Yes, I'm back to stay

Well, I'm on my way back home.

 

---Instrumental---

 

This is for all the lonely people

Thinking that life passed them by

Don't give up Until you

drink from a silver cup

She'll never take you down

or Never give you up

You'll never know until you try…

009c-I NEED YOU – La M

America

 

We used to laugh

we used to cry

we used to bow our heads then

wonder why

 

but now you're gone

i guess i'll carry on

and make the best of what you've left to me

left to me, left to me

 

I need you

like the flower needs the rain

you know, i need you

guess i'll start it all again

you know, i need you

like the winter needs the spring

you know i need you

i need you

 

And every day

i'd laugh the hours away

just knowing you were thinking of me

 

then it came

that i was put to blame

for every story told about me

about me, about me

 

I need you

like the flower needs the rain

you know, i need you

guess i'll start it all again

you know, i need you

i need you, i need you

 

like the winter needs the spring

you know i need you

i need you, i need you

 

like the flower needs the rain

you know, i need you

guess i'll start it all again

you know, i need you

like the winter needs the spring

you know i need you  i need you…

010a-TIN MAN – Si m

America

 

Sometimes late

when things are real

and the people share the gift of gab

between themselves

 

Some are quick

to take the bait

and the catch the perfect prize

that waits among the shells

 

But oz never did give nothing to the tin man

that he didn't, didn't already have

and cause never was the reason for the evening

or the tropic of sir Galahad

 

So please

believe in me

 

when i say i'm spinning round, round, round, round

smoke glass stain'd bright colors

image going down, down, down, down

soap sud green like bubbles

 

Oz never did give nothing to the tin man

010b-VENTURA HIGHWAY – Re M

America

 

Chewing on a piece of grass

Walking down the road

 

Tell me, how long you gonna stay here Joe?

Some people say this town don't look

Good in snow

You don't care, I know

 

Ventura Highway

in the sunshine

Where the days are longer

The nights are stronger

Than moonshine

You're gonna go

I kno-o-o-o-o-o-ow.

 

'Cause the free wind is blowin'

through Your hair

And the days surround you

daylight There

Seasons crying no despair

Alligator lizards in the air.

 

Do,do,do..

 

Wishin' on a falling star

Watchin' for the early train

Sorry boy, but I've been hit by Purple rain

Aw, come on Joe,

you can always Change your name

Thanks a lot son, just the same.

 

Ventura Highway

in the sunshine...

Where the days are longer

The nights are stronger

Than moonshine

You're gonna go

I kno-o-o-o-o-o-ow.

 

'Cause the free wind is blowin' through Your hair

And the days surround you daylight There

Seasons crying no despair

Alligator lizards in the air.

011a-I DON'T BELIEVE IN MIRACLES – Mi m

America

 

I walk along the road and past your door

Then I remember things you said

I know in time we could've been so much more

But if you wanna come back home, go right ahead

 

But I don't believe in miracles

I don't believe in miracles

But I thought you might show your face

Or have the grace to tell me where you are

 

I believe I was your game, your ball (your ball)

If you tossed me up then I would fall

And so you've won again, ah, you win them all

But I believe I'd run to you, if you should call

 

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

 

But I thought you might show your face

Or have the grace to tell me where you are

(tell me where you are)

 

I believe that somewhere there's someone

Who's gonna light the way when things go wrong

The bullet that shot me down came from your gun

The words that turned me round were from your song

 

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

But I thought you might show your face

Or have the grace to tell me where you are (tell me where you are)

 

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)

But I thought you might show your face

Or have the grace to tell me where you are

America

 

Ain't it foggy outside

all the planes have been grounded

let's all go stand around it

 

Funny i've been there

and you've been there

we ain't had no time to drink that beer

 

'cause i understand

that goes by the name of the sandman

he flies the sky

like an eagle in the eye of a hurricane

that's abandoned

Ain’t the years gone by fast

Well I tried to make it Sunday,

When a woman sure can be

a friend of mine

 

Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you,

Sister Golden Hair surprise

And I just can't live without you,

can't you see it in my eyes?

 

I been one poor correspondent,

and I been too too hard to find

But it doesn't mean

you ain't been on my mind

 

Will you meet me in the middle,

will you meet me in the air?

Will you love me just a little,

 

just enough to show you care?

 

Well I tried to fake it,

I don't mind sayin',

I just can't make it

012b-MUSKRAT LOVE – Mi M

America

 

Muskrat, muskrat

candlelight
doin' the town and

doin' it right


in the evenin'
it's pretty pleasin'

Muskrat Susie,

muskrat Sam
do the jitterbug out

in muskrat land

 

and they shimmy
and sammy's so skinny

And they whirled

and they twirled

and they tangoed
singin' and jinglin'

the jango
floatin' like the heavens above
it looks like

muskrat love

 

Nibblin' on bacon,

chewin' on cheese
sammy says to suisie

"honey would you please

be my missus?"
and she says yes with her kisses

And now he's ticklin' her fancy
rubbin' her toes,
muzzle to muzzle,

now anything goes
as they wiggle
and sue starts to giggle

 
and they whirled

and they twirled

and they tangoed
singin' and jinglin'

the jango
floatin' like the heavens above
it looks like

muskrat love
