Achilles Last Stand

It was an April morning
When they told us we should go
An' as I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could they say no
Whoa, the fun to have
To live the dreams we always had
Whoa, the songs to sing
When we at last return again

Swept New York a glancing kiss
To those who claim they know
To know the shrieks the seaman hears
The devil is in his home
Oh, to sail away
To sandy lands and other days
Oh, to touch the dream
That hides inside and is never seen, yeah

Into the sun, the south the north
Flys the birds of gold
The shackles of commitments fell
In pieces on the ground
Oh, to ride the wind
To tread the air above the din
Whoa, to laugh aloud
Dancing as we fought the crowd, yeah

To seek the man whose pointing hand
The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path
That churns up into stone
If one bell should ring
In celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat
As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

(Guitar Solo)

Days went by when you and I
Made an eternal summers glow
As far away and distant
Our mutual time to grow
Oh the sweet refrain
Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains Sleeping now to rise again

Wandering upon the rings
What place to rest the search
With the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

The mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth
Whoaaaaaaaaaaa

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Ohhhhh, ohhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ooooooooooohh

ALL MY LOVE

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end

For many hours and days that pass ever soon
The tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin

All of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin

Ohh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love for you now
All of my love, all of my love
Yes, all of my love to you, child

(Keyboard Solo)

(Guitar Solo)

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
His is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind

Oh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now
All of my love, oh Yes, all of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
All of my loooovvvveeeee, looovvveee

Sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes
Oh yeah
Hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey
Ooh-ooh yeah, it's all all all all all of my love
All of my love, all of my love, to you now
All of my love, all of my love
All of my love, to to you and you and you and yeah
I get a little bit lonely
just standin' up, just standin' up
Just standin' up, a little bit a-lonely

There was a time I used to call you on my very own
We were so happy, woman, talkin' for hours and hours on the telephone

THE BATTLE OF EVERMORE

The Queen of Light took her bow
And then she turned to go
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone

Oh, dance in the dark of night
Sing to the morning light

The dark Lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all, hoh

Oh, throw down your plow and hoe
Rest not to lock your homes

Side by side we wait the night
Of the darkest of them all

I hear the horses' thunder
Down in the valley below
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon
Waiting for the eastern glow

The apples of the valley hold
The seas of happiness
The ground is rich from tender care
Repay, do not forget, no, no

Oh, dance in the dark of night
sing to the morning light

The apples turn to brown and black
The tyrant's face is red

Oh, war is the common cry
Pick up you swords and fly

The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know

Oh, well, the night is long
The beads of time pass slow
Tired eyes on the sunrise
Waiting for the eastern glow

The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath
The drums will shake the castle wall
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on

Sing as you raise your bow
Shoot straighter than before

No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold

Oh, dance in the dark of night
Sing to the mornin' light

The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back
Bring it back

At last the sun is shining
The clouds of blue roll by
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes

Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back

Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now

Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back
Bring it back

Oh now
Oh now
Oh now
Oh now

Oh now
Oh now
Oh now

Bring it

BRON-Y-AUR STOMP

Ah, caught you smiling at me
That's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine

Ah, all the good times we had
I sang love songs so glad
Always smiling, never sad, so fine

As we walk down the country lane
I'll be singing a song
Hear me calling your name
Hear the wind within the trees
Telling Mother Nature about you and me

Well if the sunshines so bright
Or on our way it's darkest night
The road we choose is always right, so fine

Ah can your love be so strong
When so many loves go wrong
Will our love go on and on and on and on and on and on

As we walk down the country lane
I'll be singing a song
Hear me calling your name
Hear the wind within the trees
Telling Mother Nature 'bout you and me

My my, la de la, come on now it ain't too far
Tell your friends all around the world
Ain't no companion like a blue eyed merle
Come on now well let me tell ya
What you're missing, missing, 'round them brick walls

So of one thing I am sure
It's a friendship so pure
Angels singing all around, my dog is so fine

Yeah, ain't but one thing to do
Spend my natural life with you
You're the finest dog I knew, so fine

When you're old and your eyes are dim
There ain't no old Shep gonna happen again
We'll still go walking down country lanes
I'll sing the same old songs
Hear me call your name

CAROUSELAMBRA

Sisters of the wayside biding time in quiet peace
Await their place within the ring of calm (Ahhh)
Still stand to turn in seconds of release
Await the call they know may never come
In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon
To jeopardize the course, upset the run (Ahhh)
And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun
As love in the halls of plenty overrun

Ahh-ahhh
Ahh-ahh
Ahh-ahhh
Ahh-ahh

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast
Unending dances shadowed on the day (Ahh)
Within their walls, their daunting formless keep
Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay
Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep
Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray (Ahhh)
And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed
But no one seemed to question in anyway

Ahh-ahh
Ahh-ahhh
Ahh-ahh
Ahh-ahhh

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land
To seek the unsuspecting and the weak (Ohhh)
And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand
Toward the foe that threatened from the deep
Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand
Adrift upon a sea of futile speech (Ohhh)
And to fall to fate and make the status plan
And th' lord there in heaven would never preach

Singin' ahh-ahhh
Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh
Ahh-ahhh
Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh

Ohh
Ohh

Ohh
Ohh

Oh
Ohh

Where was your world, where was you gooooooooal
Where was your helping, where was your bow, boooooooow

Dull is the armour, cold is the daaaaaay
Hard was the journey, dark was the waaaay, waaaaaaay

I heard the word, I couldn't stay, ohhhhhhh
I couldn't stand it another day, another day
Another day, another day

Touched by the timely coming
Roused from the keeper's sleep
Release the grip, throw down the key

Held now within the knowing
Rest now within the peace
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed

They had to stay

Held now within the knowing
Rest now within the beat
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed

Take of the fruit, but guard the seed

CELEBRATION DAY

Her face is cracked from smiling
All the fears that she's been hiding
And it seems that pretty soon ev'rybody's gonna know
And her voice is sore from shouting
Cheering winners who are losing
And she worries if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We're gonna dance and sing in celebration
We're in the promised land

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in
Then she wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door
Her name is Brown or White or Black
You know her very well
You hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration
We are in the promised land

(Guitar Solo)

Ahh, there is a train that leaves the station
Heading for your destination
But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more
Yes, it has
And if you walk you're gonna get there
Although it takes a little longer
And when you see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan, ahhh yeah, moan

Oooh, yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah, moan moan
You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, yeah
You're gone, yeah
My my my my my, my my my my my my
My my my, you are gone, you're gone
My my, yeah

If you walk you're gonna get there
But know it takes a little longer
And when ya see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan

DANCING DAYS

Dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
I got my flower, I got my power
I got a woman who knows

I said it's all right
You know it's all right
I guess it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start

Crazy ways are evident
In the way you're wearing your clothes
Sippin' booze is precedent
As the evening starts to glow

You know it's all right
I said it's all right
You know it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start, dig

You told your mama I'd get you home
But you didn't say I got no car
I saw a lion, he was standing alone
With a tadpole in a jar

You know it's all right
I said it's all right
I guess it's all in my heart heart heart
You'll be my only
my one and only
Is that the way it should start

So, dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
You are my flower, you are my power
You are my woman who knows

I said it's all right
You know it's all right
I know it's all in my heart
You'll be my only yes, my one and only, yes
Is that the way it should start
I know it is all

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Lots of people talkin', few of them know

Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been
Gonna love you baby, here I come again

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin'
Can the people hear, oh
What the little fish are sayin'

Ohhhhh, ooooooh, oh oh, the people turned away
Oh, the people turned away

Down in the city streets
See all the folk go racin', racin'
No time left, no-no
To pass the time of day

Ohhhhhhh, oooooooh
Hey, hey, yeah, the people turned away
The people turned away
So far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run, see how they run, see how they run
Run-run, run-run, run-run

Do you still do the twist
Do you find you remember things that well
I wanna tell you
Some folk twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell
Ah-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, oh

Out in the country
Hear the people singin'
Singin' 'bout their progress
Knowin' where they're goin'
Yeah, yeah

Ahhhhhhh, ooooooooh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, the people turned away
Yes, the people turned away

Sing loud for the sunshine
Pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature
And she will come back again
Yes she will, yes she will

Ahhhhhhh, ooooooooh

The people turned away

Don't they know that they're goin'

FOOL IN THE RAIN

Oh, baby

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining
Like a star that can't wait for a night
I hate to think I've been blinded baby
Why can't I see you tonight
And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin'
And the thrill of your touch gives me fright
And I'm shaking so much, really yearning
Why don't you show up, make it all right, yeah, it's all right, all right

And if you promised you'd love so completely
And you said you would always be true
You swore that you would never leave me, baby
What ever happened to you
And you thought it was only in movies
As you wish all your dreams would come true, hey
It ain't the first time believe me, baby
I'm standin' here feeling blue, blue
Ha, yeah, I'm blue, hoh, baby

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner
I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown
Another ten minutes no longer
And then I'm turning around, 'round
The clock on the wall's moving slower
Oh, my heart it sinks to the ground
And the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found, found
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found
Ohhhh, that I found

Hey babe

Oooh, hand that ticks on the clock
Just don't seem to stop
When I'm thinking it over

Oooh, tired of the light
I just don't seem to find
Have you wait, get away

Whoa oooh, I see it in my dreams
But I just don't seem to be with you
You I gotta get it all
Gotta get it all, gotta get it all
I've got to get all

(Guitar Solo)

Ooh, now my body is starting to quiver
And the palms of my hands getting wet, ohh
I've got no reason to doubt you baby
It's all a terrible mess
An' I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, ohhhhhh yeah
Hey now, ohhhhhh-hoh

Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love, hey now
Light of the love, hey now
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found

FOUR STICKS

Oh, baby, it's cryin' time
Oh, baby, I've got to fly
Got to try to find a way
Got to try to get away
'Cause you know I gotta get away from you, babe
Oh, baby, the river's red
Ah, baby, in my head
There's a funny feelin' goin' on
I don't think I can hold out long

And when the owls fly in the night
Oh, baby, baby, when the pines begin to cry
Baby, baby, baby, how do you feel
If the rivers run dry, baby
How would you feel

Craze, baby, the rainbow's end
Mmm, baby, it's just a den
For those who hide
Who hide their love to depths of life
And ruin dreams that we all knew so, babe

And when the owls fly in the night
Oh, baby, baby, when the pines begin to cry
Oh, baby, baby, baby, how do you feel
If the rivers run dry, baby
How do you feel

Ahhh ahhh

And how do you feel

Ooh yeah, brave I endure
Ooh yeah, strong shields and lore
They can't hold the wrath of those who walk
An' the boots of those who march
Baby, through the roads of time so long ago

FRIENDS

Bright light almost blinding
Black night still there shining
I can't stop, keep on climbing
Looking for what I knew-a

Had a friend, she once told me
You gotta love, you ain't lonely
Now she's gone and left me only
Looking for what I knew

Mmm, I'm telling you now
The greatest thing you ever can do now
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now
It's very easy just t'

Met a man on the roadside crying
Without a friend, there's no denying
You're incomplete, they'll be no finding
Looking for what you knew

So anytime somebody needs you
Don't let them down, although it grieves you
Some day you'll need someone like they do
Looking for what you knew

Mmm, I'm telling you now
The greatest thing you ever can do now
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now
It's very easy just'a...ohh, yeah

GOING TO CALIFORNIA

Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind, make a new start
Going to California with an aching in my heart
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

Took my chances on a big jet plane
Never let 'em tell you that they're all all the same
Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake, watch out

Seems that the wrath of the Gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow
I think I might be sinking
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I'll meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high

To find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings, la la la la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born
Standing on a hill in a mountain of dreams
Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems, mmm huh-uh

GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES

In the days of my youth
I was told what it means to be a man
A' now I've reached that age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try
I find my way to the same old jam

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Sixteen I fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be
It only took a couple of days
'Til she was rid of me
She swore that she would be all mine
An' love me till the end
But when I whispered in her ear
I lost another friend, ohhh

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

(Guitar Solo)

Good times, bad times
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

I know what it means to be alone
I sure do wish I was at home
I don't care what the neighbors say
I'm gonna love you each and every day
You can feel the beat within my heart
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part

HEARTBREAKER

Hey fellas, have you heard the news
You know that Annie's back in town
It won't take long just watch an' see
How the fellas lay their money down
Her style is new but the face the same
As it was so long ago
But from her eyes, a different smile
Like that of one who knows

Well, it's been ten years and maybe more
Since I first set eyes on you
The best years of my life gone by
Here I am alone and blue
Some people cry and some people die
By the wicked ways of love
But I'll just keep on rollin' along
With the grace of the Lord above

People talkin' all around
'Bout the way you left me flat
I don't care what the people say
I know where their jive is at
One thing I do have on my mind
If you can clarify, please do
It's the way you call me another guy's name
When I try to make love to you, yeah-uh
I try to make love, they know you
Give it to me, give it

(Guitar Solo)

Ooh, work so hard I couldn't unwind
Get some money saved
Abuse my love a thousand times
However hard I tried
Heartbreaker, your time has come
Can't take your evil way
Go away, heartbreaker

Heartbreaker
Heartbreaker
Heart

Who say they come to pray to the Lord
With my little girl, looks so fine
In the evening when the sun is sinkin' low
Everybody's with the one they love

Lookin' for my street corner girl

An' in the bars, with the men who play guitars
Singin', drinkin' and rememberin' the times
My little lover does a midnight shift
She's followed around all the time
I guess there's just one thing a-left for me to do
Gonna pack my bags and move on my way
'Cause I got a worried mind, sharin' what I thought was mine
Gonna leave her where the guitars play

HOT DOG

Awwwwww, hot dog

Well I, well I, well I just got into town today
To find my girl who's gone away
She took the Greyhound at the general store
I searched myself, I searched the town
When I finally did sit down
I find myself no wiser than before

She said we couldn't do no wrong
No other love could be so strong
She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer
Now she took my heart, she took my keys
From in my old blue dungarees
And I'll never go to Texas anymore

Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
She took my love and walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
I'm gonna give her something like she never had before

I took her love at seventeen
A little late these days it seems
But they said heaven is well worth waiting for
I took her word, I took it all
Beneath the sign that said U-Haul
She left angels hangin' round for more, ah go!

(Guitar Solo)

Well, now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
She took my love and walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
I'm gonna give her something like she never had before

I thought I had it all sewn up
Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck
But folks said she was after something more
I never did quite understand
All that talk about rockin' bands
But they just rolled my doll right out the door
Ooh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door
Well, they just rolled my doll right out the door

HOTS ON FOR NOWHERE

I was burned in the heat of the moment
No, it could've been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted
Dear fellows, I turned away
Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder
When I should happen to fall
Time and his bride growing older
I've got friends who will give me some all

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
The face in the mirror turns grey
So, I looked 'round for a hitch from a reindeer
Said you oughta find him out in the day
I turned 'round to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

The moon and the stars out of order
As the tide tends to ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay
I don't ask that my feet fall on clover
I don't roam at opportunity's door
Why don't you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise
Now everything's finally happened
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
You can land in a boat without oars

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Hey babe, Hey babe
Hey babe, I lost my way
Hey babe, Hey babe
I really, really did now
Hey babe, Hey babe
I don't know where I'm gonna find it
Hey babe, Hey babe
Do you wanna know
Do you really, really, wanna help me, yeah

Let me tell you now, babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
If it feels, if it feels, if it feels
if it feels so good, so good, so good
Oh, yeah

HOUSES OF THE HOLY

Let me take you to the movies
Can I take you to the show
Let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow

From the houses of the holy
We can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter
And it only goes to show
Ah, you know

There's an angel on my shoulder
In my hand a sword of gold
Let me wander in your garden
And the seeds of love I'll sow
You know-whoa-oh

So the world is spinning faster
Are you dizzy when you're stoned
Let the music be your master
Will you heed the master's call
Oh-whoa-oh, Satan an' man

Said there ain't no use in cryin'
'Cause it will only, only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear them lyin'
Was this the only world you had
Oh-oh

So let me take you, take you to the movie
Can I take you, baby, to the show
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow
You know-whoa, that's right

Got me a girl and I kissed her and then and then
Whoops, oh Lord, well I did it again
Now I've got ten children of my own
I got another child on the way that makes eleven
But I'm in constant heaven

IMMIGRANT SONG

Ah-ah-ahhhh-ah, ah-ah-ahhh-ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
Hammer of the gods
We'll drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, sing an' cry
Valhalla, I am coming
On we sweep-we with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

Ah-ah-ahhhh-ah, ah-ah-ahhh-ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore
Of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

S-so now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all your losing

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

IN THE EVENING

In the evening
When the day is done
I'm looking for a woman
Oh, but the girl don't come
So don't let her
Play you for a fool
She don't show no pity
No no, she don't make no rules

Oh, I need your love
I need your love
Oh, I need your love
I just gotta have

So don't you let her
Oh, get under your skin
It's only bad luck and trouble
Oh, from the day that you begin
I hear you crying in the darkness
Ooh, don't ask nobody's help
Oh, ain't no pockets full of mercy baby
'Cause you can only blame yourself

Oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
Ooh yeah, I need your love
I've got to have

Ooh, it's simple
All the pain that you go through
You can turn away from fortune, fortune, fortune
'Cause that's all that's left to you
Hey, it's lonely at the bottom
Man, it's dizzy at the top
But if you stand in the middle
Ain't no way you're gonna stop, oh baby

Oh, oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
I've got to have

(Guitar Solo)

Oooooh, whatever, what your days may bring
No use hiding in a corner, oh no
'Cause that won't change a thing
If you're dancing in the doldrums
One day soon it's got to stop, it's got to stop
When you're the master of the off-chance
When you don't expect a lot, oh

Oh, I need your love,
Oh, oh, I need your love
Ooh yeah, I need your love
I've got to have, I've got to have

Oh baby, I've got to have your love
I got to have it
Oh baby, I've got to have your love, oh
Oh, oh, have your love
O-oo-oh, o-oo-oh
Iíve got to have your love

KASHMIR

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
Stars to fill my dreams
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
Secret elders of a gentle race
This world is seldom seen
Talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace
Whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear
Whoa-oh-hoh, whoa-oh-wa-oh

Oooh, oh baby, I been flyin'
Lord, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oh, oooh yes, I've been flying
Mama ma, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

Oh, all I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land
Tryin' to find, tryin' to find where I beeeeen-ahhh-ahhhh

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place
Yellow desert screen
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
When movin' through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails
Across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
'Long the straits of fear
Wha-oh, wha-oh
Whaoh-oh, oh

Ohhhh

Well, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay, yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, yes
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there

Oh, oh, come on, come on
Oh, let me take you there
Let me take you there
Whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, let me take you

MISTY MOUNTAIN HOP

Walkin' in the park just the other day, baby
What do you, what do you think I saw
Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their hair said
Hey, boy, do you wanna score
And you know how it is
I really don't know what time it was, whoa oh hoh
So I asked them if I could stay a while

I didn't notice but it had got very dark and I was really
Really out of my mind
Just then a policeman stepped up to me and asked us said
Please, hey, would we care to all get in line
Get in line
Well you know
They asked us to stay for tea and have some fun, hoh hoh oh
He said that his friends would all drop by, ooh ooh ooh ooh

Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see
And baby, baby, baby, do you like it
There you sit, sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin'
Ah, I'm not trying to fight it
You really don't care if they're coming, hoh hoh oh
I know that it's all a state of mind, ooh ooh ooh ooh

(Guitar Solo)

If you go down in the streets today, baby, you better
You better open your eyes, whoa-oo-oh yeah
Folk down there really don't care, really don't care, don't care, really don't

Which, which way the pressure lies
So I've decided what I'm gonna do now
So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains
Where the spirits go now
Over the hills where the spirits fly

Ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Close the door, put out the light
You know they won't be home tonight
The snow falls hard and don't you know

To build a dream for me and you

They choose the path where noone goes

THE OCEAN

We've done four already
but now we're steady
and then they went
One, two, three, four

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain
Got no time to pack my bag, my foot's outside the door
I got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes hailla ball

A-ha
Ah ah, yeah

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar
Play for free and play for me,I play a whole lot more, more
Singing 'bout good things and the sun that lights the day
And you can sing of the mountains, has the ocean lost it's way, I don't know

Oh oh, yeah
Ooh, yeah

Na na na na na na la, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la

Sitting around singing songs 'til the night turns into day
Used to sing on the mountains but the mountains washed away
Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart
She is only three years old and it's a real fine way to start
Oh yeah

It sure is fine
A-blow my mind
It feels so good, yeah
Yeah yeah

OUT ON THE TILES

As I walk down the highway all I do is sing this song
And a train that's passin' my way helps the rhythm move along
There is no doubt about the words are clear
The voice is strong, it's oh so strong

I'm just a simple guy, I live from day to day
A ray of sunshine melts my frown and blows my blues away
There's nothing more that I can say but on a day like today
I pass the time away and walk a quiet mile with you

All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

I'm so glad I'm leaving and gonna tell the world who I am
I got me a fine woman and she says that I'm her man
One thing that I know for sure gonna give her all the loving
Like nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody can

Standing in the noonday sun trying to flag a ride
People go and people come, see my rider right by my side
It's a total disgrace, they set the pace, it must be a race
And the best thing I can do is run

All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, okay

Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

Walk a while with me
Oh, you've got so much, so much, so much

Many have I loved
Many times been bitten
Many times I've gazed
Along the open road

Many times I've lied
Many times I've listened
Many times I've wondered
How much there is to know

Many dreams come true
And some have silver linings
I live for my dreams
And a pocketful of gold

(Guitar Solo)

Mellow is the man
Who knows what he's been missing
Many many men
Can't see the open road

Many is a word
That only leaves you guessing
Guessing 'bout a thing
You really ought to know, hoh ohh ohh ohh You really ought to know, ohh
I really ought to know, ohhh, you know I should, you know I should, you know I should know

POOR TOM

Here's a tale of Tom
Who worked the rivers run
His wife would cook his meat
As he would care at the wheel

Said poor Tom, Seventh Son
Always knew what's goin on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

Worked for thirty years
Sharin' hopes and fears
Dreamin' of the day
He could turn and say

Poor Tom, work's gone
Lazin' out in the noonday sun

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

His wife was Ellie May
One of many games she played
When Tom was out of town
She couldn't keep her dresses down

Poor Tom, Seventh Son
Always knew what's goin on

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

And so it was one day
People got to Ellie May
Tom took a gun in his hand
And stopped all the runnin' around

Poor Tom, Seventh Son
Gotta die for what you've done

All those years of work are thrown away
To ease your mind is that all you can say?
But what about that grandson on your knee?
And railroad's son is the best he could be

Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom

Keep-a Truckin'
Keep-a Truckin'

THE RAIN SONG

It is the springtime of my loving
The second season I am to know-ooh-oh-ooh-oh
You are the sunlight in my growing
So little warmth I felt before
It isn't hard to feel me glowing
I watched the fire that grew so low

It is the summer of my smiles
Flee from me keepers of the gloom
Speak to me only with your eyes
It is to you I give this tune
Ain't so hard to recognize, oh oh oh
These things are clear to all from time to time, ooooh

Oh hoh, oh hoh

Talk talk talk talk
Hey, I've felt the coldness of my winter
I've never thought it would ever go
I've cursed the gloom that set upon us, 'pon us, 'pon us
But I know that I love you so, ohhhhh, whoa
But I know that I love you so, whoa

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I see the torch we all must hold
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient
Upon us all, upon us a little rain must fall
Just a little rain
Hoooh, whoo yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee

RAMBLE ON

The leaves are falling all around
Time I was on my way
Thanks to you, I'm much obliged
For such a pleasant stay

But now it's time for me t' go
The autumn moon lights my way
But now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it's headed my way
Ah, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I've got one thing I've got to do

Ramble on
Now's the time, the time is now
Sing my song
I'm goin' 'round the world
I got to find my girl
On my way
I've been this way ten years to the day
Ramble on
I gotta find the queen of all my dreams

Got no time to spendin' grief
The time has come to be gone
And tho' our health we drank a thousand times
It's time to ramble on

(Synth Flute)

A-ramble on
Now's the ttime, the time is now

I gotta find the queen of all my dreams

(Guitar Interlude)
I ain't takin' no ride

Mine's a tale that can't be told
My freedom I hold dear
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air
T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor
I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up
And slipped away with her her
Her her, her a-yeah
An' ain't nothing I can do, now
I guess I'll keep on

Ramblin', I'm gonna shake
Sing my song, I'm gonna find my baby
I'm gonna ramble on
Sing my song, work my way, goin' 'round the world

Ramble on

It's been a long time since I did the stroll
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time, yes it has

THE ROVER

I've been to London, seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for
There can be no denyin'
That the wind 'll shake 'em down
And the flat world's flyin'
In the new plague on the land
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join

In fields of plenty when heaven sent me
I saw the kings who rule them all
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
I hear the rusted rivers call
And the wind is cryin'
Of a love that won't grow cold
My lover, she is lyin'
On the dark side of the globe
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, do it, ohh

You got me rockin' when I ought to be a-rollin'
Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go
You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me stallin'
Won't you tell me, darlin', which way to go, that's right

(Guitar Solo)

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
And I would dearly like to know
I've all this wonder of earthly plunder
Will 't leave us anything to show
And our time is flyin'
See the candle burnin' low
Is the new world risin'
From the shambles of the old
If we just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just join hands, hands
That's all it takes, that's all it takes

That's all it takes, that's all it takes
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah

ROYAL ORLEANS

One town love
You better take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night
And if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite

A man I know, went down to Louisiana
Had himself a bad, bad fight, yeah
And when the sun peeks through
John Cameron he sees sunny
He kissed her whiskers left and right
Whiskers

Now, now, now
A fight subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter
A friendship took a bash tonight
Now love gets hot
Look far for a sea with water
Grew whiskers sittin' there through the night

(Guitar Solo)

Whiskers

Down on Bourbon street
You know it's right
You can see my friend
When they run around us in the night
Most everywhere
Until the closet's bare
Run for the razor fun
Doin' up my head

New Orleans queen
Sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out
I'm struck down with my sugar
She wears my cloak like fairy white
Now, one town love
Take care how you use it
And try to make it last all night
Take your pick
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite-ah

SICK AGAIN

From the windows of a rented limousine
I saw your pretty blue eyes
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen
Painted lady in the city of lies

Oh, do you know my name
Do I look the same
You know I'm the one you want, baby
I must be the one you need, yeah

Clutchin' pages from your teenage dream
In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
Through the circus of the L.A. queens
How fast your learn the downhill slide

Oh, how you play the game
Still don't know your name
You know I'm the one you want, baby
Whooh, yes, I've got to be the one you need, need, need, need
yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

Oh, you got to tell me

(Guitar Solo)

Just a minute, just a minute
Lips like cherries on the brow of a queen
Come on, flash it, flash in my eyes
Said you dug me since you were thirteen
Then you giggle as heave an' sigh

Oh, do you know my name
Do I look the same
Baby, I got to tell you, I'm the one you want
And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah

Oh, get it, get it
Come on now

Oh, baby, I couldn't count the times

Oh, baby, dry those silver eyes

You know I'm the one you want

SOMETHIN' ELSE

Hey, look a-here
What's all this?
There's a car made just for me
To own that car would be a lot to me
A brand new convertible is out of my class
I'll buy that car and I'll go riding around
But that ain't no harm in thinking to myself
That's fine lookin' man, it's something else

Hey, look a-here
What's all this?
I never thought I'd see this look before
But here I am a-knockin' on her door
The car's out front and it's all mine
Just a '41 Ford, '69
That ain't stopping me from thinking to myself
It's okay, baby, it's a-something else

(Piano Solo)
Ahh, you're really rockin', man

Hey, look a-here
I can't say it's right
I see that girl walking down the street
Ahh, she's the sweet I'd like to meet
I guess I'll ask if she'll come for a walk
Maybe we'll go walking in the park
And then I know right to myself
She's okay, baby, yes, I said, she's somethin' else

Oh, she's somethin' else

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh-ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter

Ohh-ooh ohh-ooh ohh-ooh ohh-ooh ohh hoh

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May-Queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on

And it makes me wonder
Ahhh, hoh-hoh

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

(Guitar Solo)

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How ev'rything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all, yeah-ee-yeah
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

TANGERINE

Measuring a summer's day
I only find it slips away to grey
The hours, they bring me pain

Tangerine, tangerine
Living reflections from a dream
I was her love, she was my queen
And now a thousand years between

Thinking how it used to be
Does she still remember times like these
To think of us again
And I do

TEA FOR ONE

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seem to slip into, slip into days
Oh, twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seem to slip into days
When a minute seems like a lifetime
Ohh baby, when I feel this way

Sittin, lookin at the clock
Oh, time moves so slow
I've been watchin for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seems to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime
Baby, when I feel this way

(Guitar Solo)

To sing a song for you
I recall you used to say
Oh baby, this one's for we too.
Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby, when I feel this way

There was a time that I stood tall
In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman
And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours
Sometimes slip into days

Well well well well
A minute seems like a lifetime
Baby, when I feel this way, yeah
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby, when I feel this way, I feel this way

TEN YEARS GONE

There as it was
Then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

Blind stars of fortune
Each have several rays
On the wings maybe
Down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes
Didn't have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest
Got so far to go

Changes fill my time
Baby, that's alright with me
In the midst I think of you
And how it used to be

(Guitar Solo)

Did you ever really need somebody
And really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody
The best stuff you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby
Did it feel so good
'Cause it was just the first time
And you knew you would

Through the eyes an' I sparkle
Senses growing keen
Taste your love along the way
See your feathers preen
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes
Didn't have to grow
We are eagles of one nest
The nest is in our soul

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin'

Ohh

Oh darlin'
Oh, yeah
Oh darlin'
I'm never gonna leave ya
I never gonna leave
Holdin' on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone
Holdin' on, everday

THANK YOU

If the sun refused to shine
I would still be loving you
When mountains crumble to the sea
There will still be you and me

Kind woman, I give you my all
Kind woman, nothing more

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong
Together we shall go until we die, my my my
Inspiration is what you are to me
Inspiration, look see

(Guitar Solo)

And so today, my world it smiles
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles
But thanks to you it will be done
For you to me are the only one, ah ah yeah
Happiness, no more be sad
Happiness, I'm glad

If the sun refused to shine
I would still be loving you
Mountains crumble to the sea
There will still be you and me

THAT'S THE WAY

I don't know how I'm gonna tell you
I can't play with you no more
I don't know how I'm gonna do what mama told me
My friend, the boy next door

I can't believe what people sayin'
You're gonna let your hair hang down
I'm satisfied to sit here working all day long
You're in the darker side of town

And when I'm out I see you walking
Why don't your eyes see me
Could it be you've found another game to play
What did mama say to me

That's the way
Oh, that's the way it ought to be
Yeah, yeah, mama said
That's the way it ought to stay, yeah, yeah
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river
And weren't those tears that filled your eyes
And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying
Had they got you hypnotized

And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But all that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry

I don't know what to say about it
When all you ears have turned away
But now's the time to look and look again at what you see
Is that the way it ought to stay

That's the way
That's the way it oughta be
Oh don't you know now
Mama said, mama said that's the way it's gonna stay, yeah

WALTER'S WALK

Oooh, don't it feel so strange lookin' at the door
Ahhh, tryin' hard to change but can't let go
Ohhh, cryin' tears of pain hurtin' more an' more
Ohhh, everyday's the same as you walk in the door

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walkin' the floor

Every heart that breaks is a heart that's cold
Ohhh, to the hand that takes your dreamless soul
Ohhh, is it long to wait, is it much too late
Ohhh, sometimes it's hard when you pour in the day

You know it's hard
I said it's hard
You know
I said it's hard
You know it's hard
You know it's true

Everyday the hole in the smile is ours
When you hear the call, can you count the costs
As you stand alone do you wonder how
Can you step aside, does it matter now

Every love that's changed (Every love that's changed)
Spend it fully (fully)
In the eyes of the night (In the eyes of the night)
Was it hard to see (Was it hard to see)
And the day of the fail (And the day of the) my spite grow
So you fight the tears, enter Walter's Walk

You know it's true now
You know it's true now
Oooh, yeah

(Guitar Solo)

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walkin' the floor

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost
When ya hear the call, can you count the cost
Can you stand alone, do you wonder how
Can you step inside, does it matter now

Does it matter now
Does it
Now, does it matter

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh, little baby don't you go
Every tear that's falls
Does it matter now
Does it matter now
Oh yeah, oh yes, oh yes

THE WANTON SONG

Silent woman in the night, you came
Tell me 't I see through my shakin' frame
Same old thing, yeah, I'm not a-playin'
And the wheel rolls on

Silent moves through the flames, you come
From the deep behind the sun
Gives my nightmares, my love has gone
Left me barely holdin' on, oh, oh

With blazin' eyes I see my tremblin' hands
When we know the time has come
Lose many senses, lose command
Feel your healin' rivers run

Why's it every time I fall
That I think this is the one
Ooh, in the darkness can you hear me call
Another day has just begun, another day, yeah

Ooh

(Guitar Solo)

Sud'en'y all of my face is changed
Some know wha' it has become
Feel my fire needs a brand-new flame
And the wheel rolls on

Rolls on
Rolls on
Rolls on, eunh
Eunhwhoauhohh
