Kentucky Headhunters – Spirit In The Sky (Live at Farm Aid 1992)

December 15, 2020 Leave a comment

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best

Prepare yourself you know it’s a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He’s gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
Gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
That’s where you’re gonna go when you die
When you die and they lay you to rest
You’re gonna go to the place that’s the best

Never been a sinner. I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He’s gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky
Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best
Go to the place that’s the best

Charlie Rich | Behind Closed Doors (1973)

December 14, 2020 Leave a comment

My baby makes me proud
Lord, don’t she make me proud
She never makes a scene
By hangin’ all over me in a crowd

‘Cause people like to talk
Lord, don’t they love to talk
But when they turn out the lights
I know she’ll be leavin’ with me

And when we get behind closed doors
Then she lets her hair hang down
And she makes me glad that I’m a man
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors

My baby makes me smile
Lord, don’t she make me smile
She’s never far away
Or too tired to say “I want you”

She’s always a lady
Just like a lady should be
But when they turn out the lights
She’s still a baby to me

‘Cause when we get behind closed doors
Then she lets her hair hang down
And she makes me glad I’m a man
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors
Behind closed doors

The Move – I Can Hear the Grass Grow

December 10, 2020 Leave a comment

See the people all in line
What’s makin’ them look at me
Can’t imagine that their minds
Are thinkin’ the same as me

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

My head’s attracted to
A magnetic wave of sound
With the streams of coloured circles
Makin’ their way around.

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

Can’t seem to puzzle out the signs
My senses form a micro line
Get a hold of yourself now baby
See I need you to help now baby
Get a hold of yourself now baby

Put your head down to the ground
And listen to your mind
If you can’t spell what you found
I know that you’re not my kind

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

Can’t seem to puzzle out the signs
My senses form a micro line
Get a hold of yourself now baby
See I need you to help now baby
Get a hold of yourself now baby

See the people all in line
What’s makin’ them look at me
Can’t imagine that their minds
Are thinkin’ the same as me

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks-Payday

December 9, 2020 Leave a comment

I got my paycheck today
I think I’ll spend it like a crazy fool
Or I’ll give it all away
Something like the golden rule
And my paycheck ain’t hay
But somehow I just don’t seem to care
Ever since she went away
And left my little house so cold and bare
And I won’t tell ’em at the bank
What I’m gonna do with all my dough
I’ll just smile and tell ’em thanks (thanks)
For it’s better than they shouldn’t know

Then I’ll go and have a drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
‘Cause my baby went away
And left me here on my payday

Payday was never like this, no, no
Payday, but where is my happiness, I don’t know

I think I’ll have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think, I’m thinkin’ ’bout the girl who went away
And left me here on my payday

Yeah, I think I’ll go down to the home of happy feet
I’m buying this round, bartender, make mine a hardball banger

Then I’ll go and have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
About the girl who went away, baby
And left me here on my payday

Payday was never like this, no, no
Payday, but where is my happiness, I don’t know

Then I’ll have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
‘Cause my baby went away
And left me here on my payday

Allman Brothers Blues Band – Melissa – Acoustic – Live Music – Gregg & Dickie Betts – Video

December 8, 2020 Leave a comment

Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
Knowing many, loving none
Bearing sorrow, havin’ fun
But back home he’ll always run
To sweet Melissa

Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same
And no one knows the Gypsy’s name
No one hears his lonely sighs
There are no blankets where he lies
In all his deepest dreams the Gypsy flies
With sweet Melissa

Again the morning’s come
Again he’s on the run
Sunbeams shining through his hair
Appearing not to have a care
Well, pick up your gear and Gypsy roll on, roll on

Crossroads, will you ever let him go? No, no, no
Will you hide the dead man’s ghost?
Or will he lie, beneath the clay?
Or will his spirit float away?
But I know that he won’t stay without Melissa
Yes, I know that he won’t stay without Melissa

The Fall – The Blindness (live on Later)

December 7, 2020 Leave a comment

The flag is evil
Welcome: living leg-end

I was walking down the street
I saw a poster at the top

I was only on one leg
The streets were fucked

And the poster at the top of street said:
“Do you work hard?”

I was only on one leg
The road hadn’t been fixed
I had to be in for half six

I was only on one leg
My blue eyelids were not (?)
There was a curfew at half nine
For my kids

There was a poster at the top of the street
Encapsulated in plastic
It had a blind man

So I said: “Blind man, have mercy on me.”
I said: “Blind man, have mercy on me.”

The flat is evil and full of cavalry and Calvary
And calvary and cavalry

“Do you work hard?”
It said, “I am from Hebden Bridge
Somebody said to me: I can’t understand a word you said.”

Said: ” 99% of non smokers die”
“Do you work hard?”
“Do you work hard?”

I was walking down the street
And saw a picture of a blind man

The flat is evil
Of core? cavalry and calvary

Of core(?)
Blind man, have mercy on me
Said, blind man, have mercy on me


I am a ?
My blues eye get…ID/I get
My curfew was due half eight
Now its half past six

My curfew is at 9:30
I said. “Do you?”
Blind man! Have mercy on me
Blind man! Have mercy on me
Blind man! Have mercy on me

I’m on one leg
My eyes can’t get fixed
And my kids
Can’t blue eyes get fixed

Blind man! Have mercy on me
Blind man! Have mercy on me

Molly Hatchet Live 1979 – Flirtin’ With Disaster

December 3, 2020 Leave a comment

I’m travelin’ down the road, and I’m flirtin’ with disaster
I got the pedal to the floor, and my life is runnin’ faster

I’m out of money, out of hope it looks like self destruction
Well how much more can we take with all of this corruption

We’re flirtin’ with disaster, ya’ll know what I mean
And the way we run our lives it makes no sense to me

I don’t know about yourself or what you want to be, yeah
When we gamble with our time we choose our destiny

I’m travelin’ down that lonesome road
Feel like I’m draggin’ a heavy load
Yeah, I’ve tried to turn my head away
Feel ’bout the same most every day

(You know what I’m talkin’ about, baby)

Speedin’ down the fast lane from home
And we’re playin’ from town to town
The boys and I have been burnin’ it up
Can’t seem to slow us down

We got the pedal to the floor our lives are runnin’ faster
We got our sights set straight ahead
But I ain’t sure what we’re after

Flirtin’ with disaster ya’ll damn sure know what I mean
You know the way we run our lives it makes no sense to me
I don’t know about yourself or what you plan to be, yeah
When we gamble with our time we choose our destiny

Yeah, we’re travelin’ down that lonesome road
Feel like I’m draggin’ a heavy load
Don’t try to turn my head away
I’m flirtin’ with disaster every day
(And you are too, baby)
(It ain’t for everybody)
(Ahh, c’mon man)

Flirtin’ with disaster, babe ya’ll know what I mean
You know the way we run our lives it makes no sense to me
I don’t know about yourself or what you plan to be
When we gamble with our time we choose our destiny

Yeah, we’re travelin’ down this lonesome road
Feel like I’m draggin’ a heavy load
Don’t try to turn my head away, bahh bop bop yeah
I’m flirtin’ with disaster every day

Foo Fighters – Everlong (Live At Wembley Stadium, 2008)

December 2, 2020 Leave a comment

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red, out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how
You wanted it to be

I’m over my head, out of her head she sang
And I wonder, when I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you’ve always been there

Out of your head, out of my head I sang
And I wonder when I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when

The Doors – Love Me Two Times (Live in Europe 1968)

December 1, 2020 Leave a comment

Love me two times, baby
Love me twice today
Love me two times, girl
I’m goin’ away
Love me two times, girl
One for tomorrow
One just for today
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away

Love me one time
I could not speak
Love me one time
Yeah, my knees got weak
But love me two times, girl
Last me all through the week
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away

Oh, yes

Love me one time
I could not speak
Love me one time, baby
Yeah, my knees got weak
But love me two times, girl
Last me all through the week
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away

Love me two times, babe
Love me twice today
Love me two times, babe
‘Cause I’m goin’ away
Love me two time, girl
One for tomorrow
One just for today
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away
Love me two times
I’m goin’ away
