AL STEWART lyrics - Year Of The Cat

Lord Grenville

Original and similar lyrics
Go and tell Lord Grenville that the tide is on the turn It's time to haul the anchor up and leave the land astern We'll be gone before the dawn returns Like voices on the wind. Go and tell Lord Grenville that our dreams have run aground There's nothing here to keep us in this shanty town None of us are caring where we're bound Like voices on the wind And come the day you'll hear them saying "They're throwing it all away" Nothing more to say Just throwing it all away Go and fetch the captain's log and tear the pages out We're on our way to nowhere now, can't bring the helm about None of us are left in any doubt We won't be back again Send a message to the fleet, they'll search for us in vain We won't be there among the reaches of the Spanish Main Tell the ones we left home not to wait We won't be back again. (Won't be back again...) And come the day you'll hear them saying "They're throwing it all away" Nothing more to say Just throwing it all away Our time is just a point along a line That runs forever with no end I never thought that we would come to find Ourselves upon these rocks again Oh no... Go and tell Lord Grenville that the tide is on the turn

I'd Do It All Again

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Killer Country"
Well, the band was on its final break When he came walking in The lies that showed more than his age He was drunk, worn and thin He sat down behind the ol' piano And he ran through a couple of notes And he said, "Would somebody buy me a drink, boys To kinda help me clear my throat?" And he said, "What would you give to hear a song? What prize do memories bring? It ain't every day you get To hear living legend sing" I may forget a line or two A few words now and then It takes a drink to make me think And live it all again This gray you see don't bother Jerry Lee And neither do these lines I may have seen some better days, boys But God knows, I ain't reached my prime I've got some scars from a woman's war And playing those one-night stands Lord only knows, if I had the time I'd do it all again Yes, I could still make 'em dance Like I did in times that's gone And I can still make 'em cry And I can touch 'em with a song I can still yet turn 'em on The way that I did back then Lord only knows, if I had the time I'd do it all again

GRATEFUL DEAD "Workingman's Dead"
Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like Easy Street, there is danger at your door. Think this through with me, let me know your mind, Wo, oh, what I want to know, is are you kind? It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice. You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice. Will you come with me? Won't you come with me? Wo, oh, what I want to know, will you come with me? Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like? Their wall are built of cannonballs, their motto is Don't tread on me . Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide, Come with me, or go alone, he's come to take his children home. It's the same story the crow told me; it's the only one he knows. Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go. Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait, Wo, oh, what I want to know, where does the time go? I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb; I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune, anybody's choice, I can hear your voice. Wo, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go? Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside, Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide. Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide, Come on along, or go alone, he's come to take his children home. Wo, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go.
