I’m here without you baby

And tonight, there’s only you and me

2. The miles just keep rollin’
G
Am F G
As the people leave their way to say hello
Am
I’ve heard this life is overrated
G
Am F G
But I hope that it gets better as we go
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight, there’s only you and me

It gets hard but it won’t take away my love

It gets hard but it won’t take away my love

1. Lili, take another walk out of your fake world

Please put all the drugs out of your hand
Em
You’ll see that you can breath without no back up
F
So much stuff you got to understand
Am
For every step in any walk
Em
Any town of any thought
F
I’ll be your guide
For every street of any scene
Any place you’ve never been
I’ll be your guide
2. Lili, you know there’s still a place for people like us
The same blood runs in every hand
You see it’s not the wings that make the angel
Just have to move the bats out of your head
3. Lili, easy as a kiss we’ll find an answer
Put all your fears back in the shade
Don’t become a ghost without no colour
’Cause you’re the best paint life ever made
Rolling in the deep

2. Baby I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one of you and I’m gonna make your
head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there, as mine sure won’t be
shared
Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You’ll pay me back in kind and reap just what
you’ve sown

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
2. 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 were sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And the perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

2. So you’re heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you’re waiting outside Jimmy’s front door
But nobody’s in and nobody’s home till four
So you’re sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Ragger and his motley crew
And where you gonna go, and where you gonna sleep tonight?

Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
About the saddest ending of a book you ever had to read
The statue’s crying too and well he may
3. I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
I love you my responsibility has found a place
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd
You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job?
Maybe, but not what she deserves
4. Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare
5. The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
He knows the drink affects his speed he’s praying for a doorway
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
Life outside the diamond is a wrench
6. I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like a flower
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Meet you at the statue in an hour

1. Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night

Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall

G Am F Am F
2. Three bodied lying there does Patty see
And another man named Bello moving around mysteriously
“I didn’t do it” he says, and he throws up his hands
“I was only robbing the register, I hope you understand”
“I saw them leaving” he says and he stops
One of us had better call the cops
And so Patty calls the cops
And they arrive on the scene with their red lights flashing
In the hot New Jersey night
3. Meanwhile somewhere in another part of town
Rubin Carter and a couple of friends are driving around
Number one contender for the middleweight crown
Had no idea what kind of shit was about to go down
When a cop pulled him over on the side of the road
Just like the time before and the time before that
In Paterson that just the ways things go
If you black you might as well not show up on the streets
Less you wanna draw the heat
4. Alfred Bello had a partner and he had a rap for the cops
Him and Arthur Dexter Bradley were just out prowling around
He said, “I saw two men running out, they looked like middleweights
They jumped into a white car with out of state plates”
And Miss Patty Valentine just nodded her head
Cop said, “Wait a minute boys, this one’s not dead”
So they took him to the infirmary
And although this man could hardly see
They told him that he could identify the guilty men
5. Four in the morning and they haul Rubin in
Take him to the hospital and bring him upstairs
The wounded man looks up though his one dying eye
Says, “Why’d you bring him here for? He ain’t the guy!”
Here’s the story of the Hurricane
The man the authorities came to blame
For something that he never done
Put in a prison cell but one time he could’ve been
The champion of the world
6. Four months later the ghetto’s in flame
Rubin’s in South America, fighting for his name
While Arthur Dexter Bradley’s still in the robbery game
And the cops are putting the screw to him looking for somebody to blame
“Remember that murder that happened in a bar?”
“Remember? You said you saw the getaway car?”
“You think you’d like to play ball with the law?”
“Think it might have been that fighter that you saw running that night?”
“Don’t forget that you are white”
7. Arthur Dexter Bradley said, “I’m really not sure”
The cops said, “A poor boy like you could really use a break
We got you for the motel job and were talking to your friend Bello
Now you don’t want to have to go back to jail, be a nice fellow”
“You’ll be doing society a favor
That son of a bitch is brave and getting braver
We want to put his ass in the stir
We want to pin this trip murder on him
He ain’t no gentleman Jim”
8. Rubin could take a man out with just one punch
He never did like to talk about it all that much
It’s my work he’d say, I do it for pay
And when it’s over I’d just as soon go on my way
Up to some paradise
Where the trout streams flow and the air is nice
And ride a horse along a trail
But then they took him to the jail house
Where they try to make a man into a mouse
9. All of Rubin’s card were marked in advance
The trial was a pig-circus, he never had a chance
The judge made Rubin’s witnesses drunkards from the slums
To the white folks who watched he was a revolutionary bum
But to the black folks he was a crazy nigger
No one doubted that he pulled the trigger
And though they could not produce the gun
The D.A. said he was the one who did the deed
And the all-white jury agreed
10. Rubin Carter was falsely tried
The crime was murder one, guess who testified?
Bello and Bradley and the both badly lied
And the newspapers all went along for the ride
How can the life of such a man
Be in the palm of some fool’s hand?
To see him obviously framed
Couldn’t help but be ashamed to live in a land
Where justice is a game
11. Now all the criminal in their coats and their ties
Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise
While Rubin sits like Buddha in a ten foot cell
And innocent man in a living hell
That’s the story of the Hurricane
But it won’t be over till they clear him name
And give him back the time he’s done
Put in a prison cell but one time he could’ve been
The champion of the world
One more cup of coffee

3. Your sister sees the future like your momma and yourself
You’ve never learned to read or write there’s no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure know no limits your voice is like a meadow larks

Cast your dancing spell my way

Swinging madly through the sun

1. Hollis Brown, he lived
From the outside of town
Hollis Brown, he lived
From the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin brokin’ down
2. He looked for work and money
And he walked a rugged mile
He looked for work and money
And he walked a rugged mile
You children are so hungry
That they don’t know how to smile
7. Your grass is turning black
There’s no water in your well
Your grass is turning black
There’s no water in your well
You spent your last dollar
On seven shot-gun shells
8. Way out in the wildness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wildness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on a shot-gun
That’s hangin’ on the wall
9. Your brain is a bleedin’
And your legs can’t seem to stand
Your brain is a bleedin’
And your legs can’t seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shot-gun
That you’re holding in your hand
3. Your baby’s eyes look crazy
They’re a tuggin’ at you sleeve
Your baby’s eyes look crazy
They’re a tuggin’ at you sleeve
You walk the floor and wonder why
With every breath you breathe
10. There’s seven breezes a blowin’
All around the cabin door
There’s seven breezes a blowin’
All around the cabin door
Seven shots sing out
Like the ocean’s pounding roar
4. The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
Is there anyone that knows
Is there anyone that cares?
11. There’s seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
There’s seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
Somewhere in the distance
There’s seven new people born
5. He prayed the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
He prayed the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
You ain’t a got no money boy
You ain’t a got no friend
6. Your baby’s eyes are crying louder
It’s pounding on your brain
Your baby’s eyes are crying louder
It’s pounding on your brain
You wife’s screams are stabbin’
Like the dirty drivin’ rain

There were mysteries that I left unravelled
But leaving you was my only mistake

Imprisoned by this doubt
As if by doing nothing
I might find my way out

You know, I often stopped and wondered how you made it through my door
With my brother’s new non-duplicate registry ID
Well you bit off more than you could chew the first day you met me
3. You weren’t the first to court me mister you won’t be the last
Oh, sure I wasn’t honey, I know all about your past
Listen to the big shot with his pager on call
You spent most of those nights in my bathroom stall
(Yeah, you got him high, but you left him low)
Mind you own business, boy, how was I to know
That he was just a fiend and a no-good cheat
Well it’s all in the past bitch ’cause now I’ve got it beat

1.
Bm
F#
A
E
G
D
On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
Em
F#
4. So I called up the captain
“Please bring me my wine”
“We haven’t had that spirit here
Since nineteen sixty-nine”
And still those voices are calling from
Far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
2. There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be heaven or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say
G
D
Welcome to the Hotel California
Em
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
F#
Such a lovely face
G
D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em
Any time of year (any time of year)
F#
You can find it here
3. Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis
5. Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice (and she said)
“We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can’t kill the beast
6. Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax” said the nightman
“We are programmed to receive
You can check out anytime you like
But you can never leave”
Guaranteed

2. Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they’ll never know
A mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
And so it goes . . .
3. Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go
Holding me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you . . .
4. Everyone I come across in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering but I’m never what they thought
I’ve got my indignation but I’m pure in all my thoughts
I’m alive . . .
5. Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere
Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
Late at night I hear the trees, they’re singing with the dead
Overhead . . .
6. Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite, forever orbiting
I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me
Guaranteed . . .

2. But the years went by and the rock just died
Susie went and left us for some foreign guy
Long nights cryin’ by the record machine
Dreaming of my Chevy and my old blue jeans
But they’ll never kill the thrills we’ve got
Burning up to the crocodile rock
Learning fast as the weeks went past
We really thought that the crocodile rock would last
2. There’s a time for everyone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn
There’s a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager
Beats in time with yours

1. Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember
2. You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over
Dm
C

C
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
3. Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go and I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

But I, think about you every day
D
You said, “Do you know what happened today?”
2. And when I held you I felt so fine
It was like there was, nothing left on my mind
It was like Rockaway beach in the month of June
I wish that I could see you soon
Em
And I said, “No”
2. He was family to millions
All over the evening news
But I tend to keep away
From the press, the TV and the radio
I like to keep my mind clean
When I can I always choose
To focus on what’s here and
Not know what the world wants me to know
You said, “Would you want some tea or another
drink?”
And I said, “No”
3. We’d had sun in Bristol and
Fun with friends in London
And an awesome time as usual
On tops of hills . . . in Leeds
We listened to Fred Neil
It sounded dark with the loudness on
You whispered to me
People whisper when a baby sleeps
You said, “Will you need an extra blanket?”
And I said, “No”
3. I had no plans no meet you baby
I had a million things to do baby
But you hit my heart with a harpoon
I wish that I could see you soon
How long ’till you can see her?
And I’m like, the sooner the better
Do you, really think she will wait for you?
Well I have no way to say
And there is nothing I can do (×2)
4. Now that I am across the sea
I wonder if, you’re gonna wait for me
Or if you’re gonna find a new boy to spoon
I wish that I could see you soon
5. And if you, wait a little my pretty friend
Until I, come back to hold your hand
We’ll be like bugs when they break through a cocoon
I wish that I could see you soon
6. It’s been a while, since I felt like this
And now I found someone I really miss
Under the sun, under the moon
I wish that I could see you soon
Pure heart

And I’m helpless if you leave me
Like a werewolf in a full moonlight (×2)

When the water gets cold and freezes on the lake

I’ll be up early in the morning and wide awake

But you’re far too complicated and you tell a lot of lies
I’ll see what’s right and what’s wrong I’ll see what’s true and what’s fake
When the water gets cold and freezes on the lake
And then I’ll send out invitations to my family and friends
They will come all the way from Sweden, they will come all the way from France
My brother will bless the wine and my sister will bake a cake
When the water gets cold and freezes on the lake
Then when the time is right and when I think I understand
When I’ll forget that you had run away that you had another man
You’ll come to me crawling as fast as a snake
When the water gets cold and freezes on the lake
3. And then in the white of the snow and the quiet of nature
I will ask you to stay with me no matter the temperature
And I hope you’ll say “Yes” and won’t try to escape
When the water gets cold and freezes on the lake
Your name, my game

2. I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue
in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it
clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I’m saying is there ain’t no better
reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

Pictures of Zuckerberg’s friendly toys?
Will Google still give him the opportunity
To enjoy like we did neutrality?
Some hackers say, “We will protect you”
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
It’s such an ignorant thing to do
If the cowboys love their children too
3. There is no historical precedent
To reach the world’s citizens on a global Net
“Old economists can rule this new world”
Is a lie, I don’t believe anymore
@nk_m say, “I will fiber you”

This is the least that we can do
If we truly love our children 2.0

You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
3. Well, maybe I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live with Leonard before I knew ya
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
4. There was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath you drew was Hallelujah
5. And maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
Well it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Along the right of way
And every hobo jungle
From New York to Santa Fe

On the far side of the hill
Now his sun is sinking lower
And he’s looking for her still

And the ball goes up, like the moon so bright
Swings his bat with all his might
And the world’s so still as still can be
And the baseball falls. . . that’s strike three
4. Now it’s supper time, and his mama calls
Little boy starts home, with his bat and ball
Says, “I am the greatest, that is a fact
But even I didn’t know, I could pitch like that”
Says, “I am the greatest, that is understood
But even I didn’t know, I could pitch that good”
4. Et le jackalope a dit:
“Je voudrais être un yéti
Pour voler dans la nuit
Et m’en aller loin d’ici”
Mais le yéti a dit:
“Je voudrais être un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir sauter dans la mer
De tous les requins”
5. And the rattlesnake said, “I wish I had hands
So I could hug you like a man”
And then the cactus said:
“Don’t you understand?
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That’ll stab you like a thousand knives
A hug would be nice
But hug my flower with your eyes”

2. But no one really could hear him
The night so dark and thick and green
Well, I guess that these heroes must always live there
Where you and I have only been
Put out your cigarette, my love
You’ve been alone too long
And some of us arevery hungry now
To hear what it is you’ve done that was so wrong
3. I sing this for the crickets
I sing this for the army
I sing this for your children
And for all who do not need me
“I’d like to tell my story”

“Oh yes, I’d like to tell my story

On the side of the ghost and the King
Of course I was very young and I thought that we

I can’t pretend
I still feel very much like singing
As they carry the bodies away
3. Lately you’ve started to stutter
As though you had nothing to say
To all of my architects let me be traitor
Now let me say
I myself gave the order
To sleep and to search and to destroy
4. Yes, you who are broken by power
You who are absent all day
You who are kings for the sake of your children’s
story
The hand of your beggar
Is burdened down with money
The hand of your lover is clay

2. She used to wear her hair like you
Except when she was sleeping
And then she’d weave it on a loom
Of smoke and gold and breathing
And why are you so quiet now
Standing there in the doorway?
You chose your journey long before
You came upon this highway
3. Traveling lady, stay awhile
Until the night is over
I’m just a station on your way
I know I’m not your lover

1. Suzanne takes you down
To her place near the river
F #m
E
And you know that she’s half crazy
But that’s why you wanna be there
G #m
And she feeds you tea and oranges
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind
A
That come all the way from China
E
And just when you mean to tell her
F #m
That you have no love to give her
E
Then she gets you on her wavelength
E
And she lets the river answer that you’ve always
been her lover
G #m
And you want to travel with her
A
And you want to travel blind
E
And you know that she will trust you
F #m
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbor
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever while Suzanne
holds the mirror
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
F #m
3. Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
E
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind
2. And Jesus was a sailor
When He walked upon the water
And He spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when He knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him
He said, “All men will be sailors
Then until the sea shall free them”
But He Himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you’ll trust him
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind

But his legend still lives on
In the brothels and saloons of Durango
He lived as he died
A six gun at his side
And all the ladies cried for Rango

And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you’ve feeling in the dumps, don’t be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that’s the thing

Always look on the bright side of life
3. For life is quite absurd, and death’s the final word
You must always face the curtains with a bow
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it’s your last chance anyhow
So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath
4. Life’s a piece of shit, when you look at it
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke it’s true
You’ll see it’s all a show, keep’em laughing as you go

Always look on the right side of life

But you can’t ignore the buffalo song
If you remember you’re unknown

This messages’s done for you
Invade the whole world
Don’t forget the new password everybody sings you have
No choice in the matter
I’ll become your blessed manager

But does she really wanna
But can’t stand to see me

But separates always better
When there’s feelings involved
If what they say that “nothing is forever”
Then what makes
What makes love the exception?
So why are, why are, why are, why are
Why are we so in denial
When we know we’re not happy here?
3. Alright now fellas
Yeah oh, cooler than being cool?
I can’t hear you now, now, now
I say what’s cooler than being cool?
Alright
What now ladies
Yeah, we’re gonna bring it down in just a few
seconds here
Now don’t make me break this down for nothing

Shake it like a Polaroid Picture
Oh now, shake it
Shake it up

dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
She’s no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags
3. In the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
same old man sitting there, on his own
Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone
4. Have you seen the old man, outside the seaman’s mission?
His memory’s fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn’t care

I have squandered my resistance

And a fighter by his trade

Of every glove that laid him down
Or cut him ’til he cried out
In his anger and his shame
“I am leaving, I am leaving”
But the fighter still remains

I come lookin’ for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores

There were times when I was so lonesome
That I took some comfort there
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

4. Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
And I am older than I once was
And younger than I’ll be
But that’s not unusual
No, it isn’t strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same

My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you’re asleep
And kiss you when you’re start your day
4. And a song I was writing, is left undone
I don’t know why I spend my time
Writing songs I can’t believe
With words that tear and strain to rhyme

Weave their weary paths and die
I know that I am like the rain
There but for the grace of you go I

She once was a true love of

1. Tell her to make me a cambric shirt

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Tracing of sparrow on snow crested brown)
Without no seams nor needle work
(Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Then she’ll be a true love of mine
(Sleeps unaware of the clarion call)
2. Tell her to find me an acre of land
(On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Washes the grave with silvery tears)
Between the salt water and the sea strands
(A soldier cleans and polishes a gun)
Then she’ll be a true love of mine
3. Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather
(War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Generals order their soldiers to kill)
And gather it all in a bunch of heather
(And to fight for a cause they’ve long ago forgotten)
Then she’ll be a true love of mine
4. Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She was once a true love of mine

Within the sound of silence
2. In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon
light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
3. And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
4. “Fools” said I, “You don’t know
Silence’s like a cancer grows
Hear my words and I might teach you
Take my arms and I might reach you”
But my words like silence raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence
5. And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls, and tenement
halls”
And whispered in the sound of silence
Em
And her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow
C
Dm
F
G
C
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight
2. She is soft she is warm but my heart remains heavy
As I watch as her breasts gently rise, gently fall
For I know with the first light of dawn I’ll be leaving
And tonight will be all I have left to recall
3. Oh what have I done, why have I done it
I’ve committed a crime, broken the law
For twenty five dollars and pieces of silver
I held up and robbed a hard liquor store
4. My life seems unreal, my crime an illusion
A scene badly written in which I must play
And I know as I gaze at my young love beside me
The morning is just a few hours away

Everything is cut and dry

1. I
see the lights are turning and I
Look outside. The stars are burning through this
Changing time. It could have been anything we
Want. It’s fine, salvation was just a passing
Thought. It was just a passing
Thought
2. Don’t wait, act now. This amazing offer
Won’t last long. It’s only a chance to save the
Path we’re on. I know there are more exciting
Things to talk about. And in time we’ll sort it
Out. And in time we’ll sort it
Out
And though they say it’s possible to
Me, I don’t see how it’s probable I
See the course we’re on spinning farther from what
I know I’ll hold On. Tell me that you won’t let
Go. Tell me that you won’t let
Go
3. And truth is such a funny thing with
All these people keep on telling me they
Know what’s best and what to be frightened of and
All the rest are wrong. They know nothing about
Us. They know nothing about
Us
I’m not alright (×4)
4. This could be something beautiful combine
Our love into something wonderful but
Times are tough, I know and the pull of what we
Can’t give up takes hold

The coral that lies beneath the waves
Oh, what joy for every girl and boy

We would be so happy, you and me

Could you make it on your own?
If I could, then I would
I’ll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I’ll go wherever you will go

A way to make it back someday

Can bring me back to you

2. I went into an Ale House I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit she answered me, “Nay!”
“Such custom as yours, I could have any day”
3. I took from my pocket, ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight
She said I’d have whiskey and wines of the best
And the words that she told me were only in jest
4. I’ll go home to my parents, confess what I’ve done
And I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And when they’ve caressed me as oft’ times before
Then I never will play the wild rover no more

2. I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket, and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed, and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil takes the women for they never can be easy
3. I went into my chamber all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder
But Jenny drew my charges and she filled them out with water
Then sent for Captain Farrel, to be ready for the slaughter
4. It was early in the morning just before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise, Captain Farrel
I first produced my pistol for she stole away my rapier
But I couldn’t shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken
5. Now there’s some take delight in the carriages a rolling
And others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early
6. If anyone can aid me ’tis my brother in the army
If I can find his station, in Cork or in Killarney
And if he’ll go with me we’ll go roving in Kilkenny
And I’m sure he’ll treat me better than my darling sporting Jenny

And they called her the Irish Rover
2. We had one million bags
Of the best Sligo rags
We had two million barrels of stone
We had three million sides
Of old blind horses hides
We had four million barrels of bones
We had five million hogs
And six million dogs
Seven million barrels of porter
We had eight million bails
Of old nanny-goats’ tails
In the hold of the Irish Rover
3. There was awl Mickey Coote
Who played hard on his flute
When the ladies lined up for a set
He was tootin’ with skill
For each sparkling quadrille
Though the dancers were fluther’d and bet
With his smart witty talk
He was cock of the walk
And he rolled the dames under and over
They all knew at a glance
When he took up his stance
That he sailed in the Irish Rover
4. There was Barney McGee
From the banks of the Lee
There was Hogan from County Tyrone
There was Johnny McGurk
Who was scared stiff of work
And a man from Westmeath called Malone
There was Slugger O’Toole
Who was drunk as a rule
And Fighting Bill Treacy from Dover
And your man, Mick MacCann
From the banks of the Bann
Was the skipper of the Irish Rover
5. We had sailed seven years
When the measles broke out
And the ship lost its way in the fog
And that whale of a crew
Was reduced down to two
Just myself and the Captain’s old dog
Then the ship struck a rock
Oh Lord! What a shock!
The bulkhead was turned right over
Turned nine times around
And the poor old dog was drowned
And the las of the Irish Rover

And though she’s not really ill there’s a little yellow pill
D
She goes running for the shelter of her mother’s little helper
Em
And it helps her on her way gets her through her busy day
2. Things are different today I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband’s just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns a frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of her mother’s little helper
And to helps her on her way get her through her busy day

Doctor please some more of these

3. Men just aren’t the same today I hear every mother say
They just don’t appreciate that you get tired
They’re so hard to satisfy you can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of your mother’s little helper
And for to help you through the night help to minimise your plight
Doctor please some more of these
Outside the door she took four more
What a drag it is getting old
4. Life’s just much too hard today I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper
They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day

2. I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day
3. I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and I want it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the
facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is
black
4. No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

No colors anymore, I want them to turn black

To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
And he said one word to me, and that was “dead”

Well, I would, Holly, but love really bores me
Then I guess we should just be friends?
I’m just kidding Holly, you know that I’ll love you ’til the end
4. Holly, give me some of your English lovin’
If I did that, Jack, I’d have one in the oven
Why don’t you go off and love yourself?
If I did that, Holly, there wouldn’t be anything left for anybody else
5. Jack, it’s too bad about the way that you look
You know, I gave that horse a carrot so he’d break your foot
Will the two of you cut it out?

Thy pincase, gallant to the eie
No better wore the burgesse wives
And yet thou wouldst not love me
8. Thy crimson stockings, all of silk
With golde all wrought above the knee
Thy pumps, as white as was the milk
And yet thou wouldst not love me
9. Thy gown was of the grassie green
Thy sleeves of satten hanging by
Which made thee be our harvest queen
And yet thou wouldst not love me
10. Thy garters fringed with the golde
And silver aglets hanging by
Which made thee blithe for to beholde
And yet thou wouldst not love me

No ladie ever was so brave

3. I bought thee kerchers to thy head
That were wrought fine and gallantly
I kept thee both at boord and bed
Which cost my purse well favouredly
12. My men were clothed all in green
And they did ever wait on thee
All this was gallant to be seen
And yet thou wouldst not love me
13. They set thee up, they took thee downe
They served thee with humilitie
Thy foote might not once touch the ground
And yet thou wouldst not love me
14. For everie morning, when thou rose
I sent thee dainties, orderly
To cheare thy stomack from all woes
And yet thou wouldst not love me
4. I bought thee peticotes of the best
The cloth so fine as fine might be
I gave thee jewels for thy chest
And all this cost I spent on thee
15. Thou couldst desire no earthly thing
But stil thou hadst it readily
Thy musicke still to play and sing
And yet thou wouldst not love me
5. Thy smock of silke, both faire and white
With gold embrodered gorgeously
Thy peticote of sendall right
And this I bought thee gladly
16. And who did pay for all this geare
That thou didst spend when pleased thee?
Even I that am rejected here
And thou disdainst to love me
6. Thy girdle of gold so red
With pearles bedecked sumtuously
The like no other lasses had
And yet thou wouldest not love me
17. Wei, I wil pray to God on hie
That thou my constancie maist see
And that yet once before I die
Thou will vouchsafe to love me
Greensleeves, now farewel, adue!
God I pray to prosper thee
For I am stil thy lover true
Come once againe, and love me!
