Time Passages

Original and similar lyrics
It was late in December, the sky turned to snow All round the day was going down slow Night like a river beginning to flow I felt the beat of my mind go Drifting into time passages Years go falling in the fading light Time passages Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight Well I'm not the kind to live in the past The years run too short and the days too fast The things you lean on are the things that don't last Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these Time passages There's something back here that you left behind Oh time passages Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn Don't know why you should feel That there's something to learn It's just a game that you play Well the picture is changing Now you're part of a crowd They're laughing at something And the music's loud A girl comes towards you You once used to know You reach out your hand But you're all alone, in these Time passages I know you're in there, you're just out of sight Time passages Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Folsom Prison Blues

Cash Johnny "Sings His 20 Best"
I hear the train a comin´ it´s rolling round the bend and I ain´t seen the sunshine since I don´t know when, I´m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin´ on but that train keeps a rollin´ on down to San Anton.. When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son, always be a good boy, don´t ever play with guns. But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die now every time I hear that whistle I hang my head and cry.. I bet there´s rich folks eating in a fancy dining car they´re probally drinkin´ coffee and smoking big cigars. Well I know I had it coming, I know I can´t be free but those people keep a movin´ and that´s what tortures me... Well if they´d free me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine I bet I´d move just a little further down the line far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay and I´d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.....

Freight Train

KASEY CHAMBERS "Barricades & Brickwalls"
Well I just came down from Chippewa I had a station wagon and a hundred dollars I was thinkin' about the girl I'd lost a year before I hadn't seen her for some time I thought that I might go on by When your memory came floodin' in And you closed that door [CHORUS:] Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistlin' down your track Crashin' in your door Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I didn't have a heart And you'd need a shovel for the coal Just to get me started Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I was a freight train Well every time I talk to you And I hear your jealous lies I feel like I've been left abandoned On some old railway side And every time I hear your voice My water just gets cold My stoker will not stoke And my boiler will not boil [CHORUS] Well every time I fell behind And I could not get ahead I wish someone would pull the lever And give me a little sand And every time I slip behind Even further back I wish some switchman would come out of the fog And change my track Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I was a diesel locomotive I'd come whistlin' down your track Crashin' in your door Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I didn't have a heart And you'd need a shovel for the coal Just to get me started Wish I was a freight train baby Wish I was a freight train . . .

Shut Up

MADNESS "Seven"
(W. Wurlitzer) I used to work nights with my dad It was the best job I ever had Until them blokes on their bikes came through Said Come on down to youth, brother, see what's new Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight Went to the dance like they said I should It cost me a bob, but it was quite good The band were jumpin' and a-jivin' around Their 20 Watt amps really made a sound Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight Well, I'll have a cup of tea and then I'll change me name And I'll put my records o-ah-o-ah-on Till all the geezers in the flat complain Wish that rockstar bloke was gone is the moan Let's have some fun tonight Sold all my records and I bought a bike I found some blokes who would do what I like I saw the rigger who ran the hall He said we can rehearse there any time at all Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight We're really rocking now, I've got a bird She says we are the best band she's ever heard I've got a bike and I'm having a time But my mum keeps saying Rock 'n' roll's a crime! Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight (All right, all night!) Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight

Baby, You Look Good To Me Tonight

JOHN DENVER "Spirit"
(Danoff) I've been out on this highway now, five days in a row. My words all run together and my feet are moving slow, got to stop and eat while it's still light. Local angel sitting on my right, do you believe in love at first sight? Baby, you look good to me tonight. Well, I'm ordinarily very shy and I'd be polite if I had the time. Baby, you look good to me tonight. Tomorrow I'll be good and gone, please don't make me wait that long. Baby, you look good to me tonight. 'I get off at eleven,' she said and walked away. She poured a cup of coffee and she brought it on a tray. She said, 'It would be nice if you could stay, you're the best idea I've had all day, usually I put up a fight but baby, you look good to me tonight.' Well I'm ordinarily very shy but I grinned at her as I ate my pie, said, 'Baby, you look good to me tonight.' I thought I must be in a dream when she asked me if I wanted cream, baby, you look good to me tonight. All in all, you know it's not a bad life on the road if you've got wheels to roll and lucky stars above. Your destiny's your own, you go as far as you can go and if there's time to sleep, there's time to make love. I came, I saw, I conquered and I rode off in the sun. You know the look she left me with keeps telling me she won, her face is the only thing I see. Whispering these words of prophecy: 'Well, I may come easy but I don't come free, you're never gonna see the last of me.' Baby, you look good to me, I was born to love you now can't you see, baby, you look good to me tonight. Well, I'm ordinarily very shy, but I take the time to satisfy, baby, you look good to me tonight. Baby, you look good to me tonight.
