Thanks Craig and all who have contributed lyrics to this thread. I wanted to bring it back to the front page for some Newbies.

There have been quite a few requests for lyrics at
Mickey's myspace site, and I've tried to help directly
or provide links to this topic. Maybe it's time, if
someone wants to take it on, to organize the addition
of a Lyrics link to Mickey's home page.

Doug,
I wouldn't be adversely opposed to stewarding something along those lines just as long as it was with the blessings of the Newbury family.

I was hoping you might say that, Craig!
I'll e-mail Susie if you haven't already.
If there's a lot of typing involved, I'm sure
there are a half-dozen or more of us who'd
volunteer to type up a few lyrics apiece to
aid in the project.

Well the cold hardwood's creakin
As he lay asleep
His breathin' is all I heard
I stood at the foot of his bed, he awakened
I stood and I said not one word
I took from my pocket an old silver dollar
The date on it could not be read
I put the dollar in his withered old hand
And I put a gun to his head
Lord he trembled in terror
And clutching the covers
Cried Jessie what is your demand
I said in a voice less than a whisper
Said I would find you old man

Well I did not kill him
But I swore I would
When I saw him the next time around
I said you are no stranger
I have known you forever
And you will remember me now
So I packed all my gear
And went up to the mountains
I needed the time there to heal
And I swore on the grave
Of my brother that day
That was one man I would kill

From memory, hope I didnt screw it up.Put this on the front porch, figured it fit here too.

She’s my baby once in a while she’s a lady
But the lady don’t smile too much lately
The lady’s got the blues

Lord I need her when she’s not around
I will see her the next time she’s down
When the baby in my lady gets her blues

When the baby in my lady remembers someone is waiting
To hold her, not to scold her, for what she has done

I need her when she’s not around
But I will see her the next time she’s down
When the baby in my lady gets the blues

If she needs me how could I mind
When she leaves me oh she is fine
When she needs me when my Baby’s got the blues
She’s my baby and once in a while she’s a lady
But the lady don’t smile too much lately
The lady’s got her blues

Maybe the first Mickey song I ever learned to play, Craig. Being only about 18, I remember thinking at the time: "This is so Country and I don't think I'm Country; Why do I like it so much?"

This mornin' at dawn Lord
I pulled into town
Had some coffee and talked with
some old friends of mine

Laughin' at all
the good times they remembered
And then
I remembered the time...

Jeff,
When I first heard this song I thought of Buddy Holly and some of the others during that time in music. To me, it just has that feel to it. It also makes me wonder when Mickey wrote it. I have no way of knowing but I am sure someone does.

Awe, Laura...that line is the one that really hit home. I was there, right when I heard it. "Like a feather in the wind". Lost with no direction, not knowing what I needed to do. A desert wanderer in need of an anchor. You have no idea.

I wasn't a 'desert wanderer' but my "dear" friend in high school was finding his way in Phoenix back in the mid-late 60's. Planning for our 2000 high school class reunion he told me the story, I went to the CD store and listened....with tears flowing, I ordered It Might As Well Be The Moon. And, I was the happy winner of the Poison Red Berries picture Jackie brought for the auction in 2004, my first trip to the Gathering.
