         Johnny Winter ~ Saints and Sinners   
                      "Stray Cat Blues"
 
I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you're no scare-eyed  honey
There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
But it's no hanging  matter
It's no capital crime

I can see that you're fifteen years  old
No I don't want your I.D.
I can see that you're so far from home
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a  strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don'tcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you're a  strange stray cat
Bet your mama don't know you scream like that
I bet your  mother don't know you can spit like that

You look so weird and you're so  far from home
But you don't really miss your mother
You don't look so  scared, I'm no mad-brained bear
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital  crime, oh yeah

I bet your mama don't know that you scratch like that
I  bet she don't know you can bite like that

You say, you got a friend, that she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs
If she's so wild  then she can join in too
It's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don'tcha scratch like  that
Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
I bet you mama don't know you can  bite like that
I'll bet she never saw you scratch my back

One of my favorites with several meaningful lines for me, At The Edge by David Crosby from the album CPR

 

 

 

Our grasp is so fragile, the thread is so thin

I wonder each day if I'm blowin away

I know that I'm lucky- I wouldn't be here at all

If somebody's hand hadn't been where I stand

At the edge of a very great fall.

 

And like a lighthouse before you at the edge of the sea

the woman who's grip holds when you slip.

but the darkness won't get you - your family won't go

they will make your heart light to where you know what is right

and you go where you know you should go.

 

And it's life and it's dying, it's beginnings and ends

It's what did you do with the life they gave you?

It's were you that honest and did you make amends?

To all of the ones that were under your guns

How have you treated your friends

Pink Floyd - Echoes
 
 
Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the where's or why's
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
No one speaks
And no one tries
No one flies around the sun

Cloudless every day you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.

Top Five;
Rush
 
"Time Stand Still"

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again.
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I'd like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defences down
All those wounds that I can't get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away...

Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away...
The innocence slips away

I didn't have to think about this for more than 2 seconds....
 
 
"Time"

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

JUDAS PRIEST  "Beyond The Realms Of Death"
 
[binks/Halford]
 
He had enough
He couldn't take anymore
He'd found a place
In his mind and slammed the door
No matter how they tried
They couldn't understand
They washed and dressed him
Fed him by hand

Yeah! I've left the world behind
I'm safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I'll decide not you

Withdrawn he'd sit there
Stare blank into space
No sign of life
Would flicker on his face
Until one day he smiled
It seemed as though with pride
The wind kissed him
Goodbye - and then he died

Yeah! I've left the world behind
I'm safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I'll decide not you

Keep the world with all it's sin
It's not fit for livin' in
Yeah! I will start again
It can take forever, and ever, and ever
And ever, but I'll still win.

How many like him,
Are there still
But to us, all
Seem to have lost the will
They lie in thousands
Plagued and lost
Is nothing worth this bitter cost

Yeah! I've left the world behind
I'm safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I'll decide not you Keep the world with all it's sin
It's not fit for livin' in

Beyond the realms of death.

For me, I fall back to Pink Floyd, "Time"
 
The lyrics have so many applicable meanings.  The one I like the most is to use the "ten years have got behind you..." when consulting with decision makers that have a difficult time making decisions.

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field

Calls the faithful to their knees

Frank Zappa - Don't Eat The Yellow Snow

 
Dreamed I was an Eskimo

Frozen wind began to blow

Under my boots and around my toes

The frost that bit the ground below

It was a hundred degrees below zero

 
And my mama cried

And my mama cried

Nanook, a-no-no

Nanook, a-no-no

Don't be a naughty Eskimo

Save your money, don't go to the show

 
Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh

Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh

Well I turned around and I said ho, ho

And the northern lights commenced to glow

And she said, with a tear in her eye

Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow

Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow

Queensryche - Another Rainy Night 
 
Don't slam the door, on your way out

Don't leave without saying goodbye.

Another long distance night alone,

you leave me wanting, always leave me wanting more.

Last word today, coming home to stay ?

Wouldn't that be nice, for a while ?

 

But now my take-out food is growing cold,

and the candle's burned a hole in the floor.

And I'm still waiting for the ring of the phone.

 

I'm all alone

It's another rainy night, without you.

Guess I'll leave a light on for you.

It's just another rainy night, without you.

 

Listen, there's a foghorn blowing

from the coast tonight.

Remember making love in the rain ?

Strange how laughter looks like crying with no sound

Raindrops taste like tears without the pain.

I'm not much without you,

can't leave if I wanted to.

Maybe that's why you stay around ?

 

But tonight I'll sit here tending the fire

and pace the floor one hundred times in an hour.

And check the voice-mail for a message you've called.

 

I'm all alone

It's another rainy night, without you.

Waiting by the phone. Alone.

It's just another rainy night, without you.

Guess I'll leave a light on for you.

 

I know I've said it before

hate the sound of the closing door

and your footsteps walking away.

 

But now my take-out food is growing cold,

and the candle's burned a hole in the floor.

And I'm still waiting for the ring of the phone.

 

I'm all alone

It's another rainy night, without you.

Waiting by the phone. Alone.

And it's another rainy night, without you.

Guess I'll leave a light on for you.

 

It's just another rainy night,

another rainy night,
another rainy night...

Without you.

THE BEATLES
"Rocky Raccoon"
(Lennon/McCartney)

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young Rocky in the eye Rocky didn't like that
He said I'm gonna get that boy
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon

Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon's bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shoot off the legs of his rival
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
But everyone knew her as Nancy
Now she and her man who called himself Dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
He said Danny boy this is a showdown
But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner, ah

D'da d'da d'da da da da
D'da d'da d'da da da da
D'da d'da d'da da d'da d'da d'da d'da
Do do do do do do

D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
Do do do do do do

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said Rocky you met your match
And Rocky said, doc it's only a scratch
And I'll be better I'll be better doc as soon as I am able

And now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon's bible
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival, ah
Oh yeah, yeah

D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
Do do do do do do

D'do d'do d'do do do do, come on, Rocky boy
D'do d'do d'do do do do, come on, Rocky boy
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
The story of Rocky there

"He's Gone"
 
Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb, you know better but I know him.

Like I told you, what I said, Steal your face right off your head.

 

Now he's gone, now he's gone, Lord he's gone, he's gone.

Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track

He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

 

Nine mile skid on a ten mile ride, hot as a pistol but cool inside.

Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile,

Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!!!!

 

Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone.

Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track

He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

 

Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,

Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.

Lost one round but the price wasn't anything,

A knife in the back and more of the same.

 

Same old, rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb,

You know better but I know him.

Like I told you, what I said,

Steal your face right off your head.

 

Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone.

Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track

He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

 

Ooh, nothin's gonna bring him back.
 
 
"Jack Straw"

 

We can share the women, we can share the wine.

We can share what we got of yours 'cause we done shared all of mine.

Keep on rollin', just a mile to go;

Keep on rollin' my old buddy, you're movin' much too slow.

 

I just jumped the watchman, right outside the fence.

Took his rings, four bucks in change, ain't that Heaven sent?

Hurts my ears to listen, Shannon, burns my eyes to see;

Cut down a man in cold blood, Shannon, might as well been me.

 

We used to play for silver, now we play for life;

And one's for sport and one's for blood at the point of a knife.

And now the die is shaken, now the die must fall.

There ain't a winner in the game, he don't go home with all.

Not with all.

 

Leavin' Texas, fourth day of July,

Sun so hot, the clouds so low, the eagles filled the sky.

Catch the Detroit Lightnin' out of Sante Fe,

The Great Northern out of Cheyenne, from sea to shining sea.

 

Gotta go to Tulsa, first train we can ride.

Gotta settle one old score, one small point of pride.

There ain't a place a man can hide, Shannon will keep him from the sun

Ain't a bed can give us rest now, you keep us on the run.

 

Jack Straw from Wichita cut his buddy down,

And dug for him a shallow grave and laid his body down.

Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light,

One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow.

 

We can share the women, we can share the wine.

 Rush - Something For Nothing
This one has served as a reminder, helping me getting me off my a$$ and making a change in my life more than once.
Waiting for the winds of change
To sweep the clouds away
Waiting for the rainbow's end
To cast its gold your way
Countless ways
You pass the days

Waiting for someone to call
And turn your world around
Looking for an answer
To the question you have found
Looking for
An open door

You don't get something for nothing
You can't have freedom for free
You won't get wise
With the sleep still in your eyes
No matter what your dreams might be

What you own is your own kingdom
What you do is your own glory
What you love is your own power
What you live is your own story
In your head is the answer
Let it guide you along
Let your heart be the anchor
And the beat of your own song

You don't get something for nothing
You can't have freedom for free
You won't get wise
With the sleep still in your eyes
No matter what your dreams might be

  1. Blue Sky
  2. Walk along the river, sweet lullaby, it just keeps on flowing,

    Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walking down the road,

    Early morning sunshine tell me all I need to know

    You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day.

    Lord, you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way,

    Turn your love my way, yeah.

    Good old Sunday morning, bells are ringing everywhere.

    Goin' to Carolina, it won't be long and I'll be there

    You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day

    Lord, you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way,

    Turn your love my way, yeah, yeah

"Taxi"

HARRY CHAPIN 
 
It was raining hard in 'Frisco
I needed one more fare to make my night
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down
She got in at the light

Oh, where you going to, my lady blue
It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain
She just looked out the window
She said, Sixteen Parkside Lane

Something about her was familiar
I could swear I'd seen her face before
But she said, I'm sure you're mistaken
And she didn't say anything more

It took a while, but she looked in the mirror
And she glanced at the license for my name
A smile seemed to come to her slowly
It was a sad smile, just the same

And she said, How are you Harry
I said, How are you Sue
Through the too many miles
And the too little smiles
I still remember you

It was somewhere in a fairy tale
I used to take her home in my car
We learned about love in the back of a Dodge
The lesson hadn't gone too far

You see, she was gonna be an actress
And I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
And I took off to find the sky

Oh, I've got something inside me
To drive a princess blind
There's a wild man, wizard
He's hiding in me, illuminating my mind
Oh, I've got something inside me
Not what my life's about
'Cause I've been letting my outside tide me
Over 'til my time, runs out
 
(Baby's so high that she's skying) 
(Yes, she's flying, afraid to fall)
(I'll tell you why baby's crying)
('Cause she's dying, aren't we all)

There was not much more for us to talk about
Whatever we had once was gone
So I turned my cab into the driveway
Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns

And she said, we must get together
But I knew it'd never be arranged
And she handed me twenty dollars
For a two fifty fare
She said, Harry, keep the change

Well, another man might have been angry
And another man might have been hurt
But another man never would've let her go
I stashed the bill in my shirt

And she walked away in silence
It's strange, how you never know
But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for
Such a long, long time ago

You see, she was gonna be an actress
And I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
And I took off for the sky

And here, she's acting happy
Inside her handsome home
And me, I'm flying in my taxi
Taking tips, and getting stoned
I go flying so high, when I'm stoned

Great question and based on the chapter and page of life, I can change it often, Simon and Garfunkel "Only Living Boy in New York", John Lennon "Imagine", Pink Floyd "Fearless", all of DSOTM, Nick Drake, N. Young, Dylan,but today:
 
Cat Stevens/ Father and Son
 

Father
It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy,
To be calm when you've found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
It's always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
It's not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.
Son, away away away, I know I have to

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them you know not me.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
Father, stay stay stay, why must you go and
Make this decision alone?

Doors– The End
 
 
This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again

Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free
Desperately in need, of some, stranger's hand
In a, desperate land

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane, all the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah
There's danger on the edge of town
Ride the King's highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby
Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles

Ride the snake, he's old, and his skin is cold
The west is the best, the west is the best
Get here, and we'll do the rest
The blue bus is callin' us, the blue bus is callin' us
Driver, where you taken us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall

He went into the room where his sister lived, and, then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door, and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother, I want to, murder you

C'mon baby, take a chance with us
C'mon baby, take a chance with us
C'mon baby, take a chance with us

And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin' a blue rock, on a blue bus
Doin' a blue rock, c'mon, yeah
Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill
This is the end, beautiful friend

This is the end, my only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end

Boston - Long Time:
 
 
It's been such a long time
I think I should be goin', yeah
And time doesn't wait for me, it keeps on rollin'
Sail on, on a distant highway
I've got to keep on chasin' a dream
I've gotta be on my way
Wish there was something I could say.

Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' on
You'll forget about me after I've been gone
And I take what I find, I don't want no more
It's just outside of your front door.

It's been such a long time. It's been such a long time.

Well I get so lonely when I am without you
But in my mind, deep in my mind,
I can't forget about you
Good times, and faces that remind me
I'm tryin' to forget your name and leave it all behind me
You're comin' back to find me.

Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' on
You'll forget about me after I'v e been gone
And I take what I find, I don't want no more
It's just outside of y our front door.

It's been such a long time. It's been such a long time.

Yeah. It's been such a long time, I think I should be goin', yeah
And time dosnt wait for me, it keeps on rollin'
There's a long road, I've gotta stay in time with
I've got to keep on chasin' that dream, though I may never find it
I'm always just behind it.

Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' along
Takin' my time, just movin' along
Takin' my time, takin' my time...

Jim Croce

Time in a bottle

 

 

If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I'd like to do

Is to save every day 'til eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you

 

If I could make days last forever

If words could make wishes come true

I'd save every day like a treasure and then

Again, I would spend them with you

 

But there never seems to be enough time

To do the things you want to do once you find them

I've looked around enough to know

That you're the one I want to go through time with

 

If I had a box just for wishes

And dreams that had never come true

The box would be empty except for the memory

Of how they were answered by you

 

But there never seems to be enough time

To do the things you want to do once you find them

I've looked around enough to know

That you're the one I want to go through time with

I’ve really been enjoying Sean Rowe for a while now. He has a very unique sound, and I especially like the stories he tells in his songs. One in particular that I find powerful is The Very First Snow.

 

The world rolls and it changes gears
But today I'll stay in bed
I'm gonna soak these sheets in tears
I'm gonna think of you instead

They say that you're in a better place now
Oh but they don't believe what they know
You left with all of the Christmas lights on
As light as the very first snow

I see red and I hear the noise
I'm gonna go there when I can
Oh whiskey rye is my drug of choice
I think the night will understand

And though you won't get that cold anymore
You will freeze in the back of my brain
And in my dreams I will open the door
If you will lean into the frame

I'm gonna miss your indoor voice
And the way you washed your hands
And all these diamonds you left for me
That I just thought were sand

They say that you're in a better place now
Oh but they don't believe what they know
You left with all of the Christmas lights on
As light as the very first snow

Ripple
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?
It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air
Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow
Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men
There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone
Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow
You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home
Songwriters: Jerome J. Garcia / Robert C. Hunter
