Gentle on my mind
Glen Campbell announces he has Alzheimers: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/06/23/3251159.htm It’s knowing that your door is always open And your path is free to walk That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag Rolled up and stashed behind your couch And it’s knowing I’m not shackled By forgotten words and bonds And the ink stains that have […]
Diamonds and Rust
Well I’ll be damned Here comes your ghost again But that’s not unusual It’s just that the moon is full And you happened to call And here I sit Hand on the telephone Hearing a voice I’d known A couple of light years ago Heading straight for a fall
Buckets of rain
Buckets of rain Buckets of tears Got all them buckets coming out of my ears Buckets of moonbeams in my hand You got all the love honey baby I can stand.

Well it goes like this The fourth, the fifth The minor fall and the major lift The baffled king composing Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Well Your faith was strong […]
Taint nobody’s biz-nes if I do
If I should take a notion to jump into the ocean ‘taint nobody’s biz-ness if I do, do, do, do. If I go to church on Sunday, then just shimmy down on Monday, ‘Taint nobody’s biz-nes if I do if I do. If my friend ain’t got no money and I say take all mine, […]
