Here's to whatever I never did say
Here's to old friends who have gone separate ways
Here's to the memories

How I long to be in those East Texas woods
I would be in those old piney woods if I could
On a hot summer mornin' down Centerville Way
the windows rolled down in my old Chevrolet

Cruisin' the backroads with nothin' but time
three nickels short of having a dime
miles from the highway, no hill left to climb
Me and the whisperin' pine

..I remember..


This is tomorrow.

Ah the rednecks are drawin'
Their lines in East Tennessee
Their cannons are primed
And they're fit to be tied I believe

The man in the grey flannel suit
Does not walk on the street
Say does anyone know
What became of the old Opry

The outlaws are taking
An axe to the old hangin' tree
Traded their guns
for a guitar and two lids of tea

They swear in a slow Texas drawl
All the killin' is done
I believe them by God
But I'm keepin' my back to the sun

Tomorrow is out of sight
Yesterday's dead and gone
You never knew how right you were
The night you wrote that song

A truck drivin' man makes his stop
Where the coffee is free
El Paso this morning
Tonight it will be Tennessee

Spends all his miles
On the dials of a poppin' CB
Does anyone know
What became of ole Ralph Emery

The blacks and chicanos
Are telling the indians how
The white eye is the devil
It looks like one hell of a row

Shaking my head I retreat
From the sacred pow wow
I am marching on Ireland
It is making some sense to me now

Yesterdays news is old news
The skies are all gray

Bill Smith Posted - 04/24/2012 : 10:20:15
Oh the road it sure got rough, Lord, where I've been,
So many times I thought I'd just call it a day,
But there's nothing when it's over but the end,
So I guess I gotta' find a better way.
Craig Posted - 04/23/2012 : 19:11:47

Well at times I feel I need the rain
At time's I need the sun
Pleasure is a thread of pain
When it is undone

My moments of insanity
Are never like a chain
I only know I am not free
The nights when I am sane

So do not be concerned my love
If you see me cry
For the laughter does not
Choose to free
The happiness inside

Just as there may seem to be
A smile that's out of place
It only means there is a pain
That hurts too much to face

San Diego Posted - 09/26/2011 : 20:31:13
I want someone I can call when I'm alone
Someone by my side when things go wrong
Someone to stand by me no matter what I do
Just as long as that someone is you
Craig Posted - 09/26/2011 : 18:33:59
I came to hear the music...
And to love all that came as well.
We've lost something along the way,
We don't have much to say...
For now.

The magic is here...if we look for it.
It doesn't take much effort.
Just look inside.
It is still there,
In us.

My itís been a long long time
Funny things I have treasured in my mind
Are like the closiní of a door
It donít matter anymore

All the friends I thought I knew
They dwindle down now to a precious few
Feel like an aging L.A. whore
It donít matter anymore

Takiní it in watchiní a willow freely
Bend in the wind turning so ever slowly
Into the end honey donít no one know me
Not the way you do

Oh itís been a long long time
Funny thing how you could always read my mind
Turn out the lights and close the door
It donít matter anymore

Craig Posted - 06/05/2010 : 08:21:15

Walk me through the blindin' snow
Take me where the sun won't go
Shallow waters never flow
Slowly to the sea

Walk me through the dry hot sand
Steal my cup but fill my hand
Leave me where the valley can
Rock my soul back to sleep

Where the mighty winds lie still
Ever silence on the hill
Cradled by the mountain til
The Father welcomes me

And lay me down in the verdent green
At the breast of the mother spring
With a song that I can sing
One that I can keep
Let me sleep

Craig Posted - 11/04/2009 : 20:14:56
This is a good thread isn't it, Dave...

Let's keep it going. There are still some songs left that we haven't covered.

aussiedave Posted - 11/04/2009 : 20:11:37
Baby, and maybe, I never did love you.
aussiedave Posted - 05/18/2009 : 04:54:49
and maybe the spring is nothin' if not for the young...

This one's been in the archives too long.
Time for another look. And, maybe even
more input.

Bill.. I think of all Mickey's lyrics, these may be my favorite. Especially with his voice, melody, delivery and what those four lines say..

Yes Joey, 'lost' is a wonderful expression.
Mickey's voice, even late in his career, still had that special sound.
It could still melt your heart and caress your soul.

...I love to hear him hold each note, right to the very end.
