My Home's In Alabama

Original and similar lyrics
Words and Music by Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry Drinkin' was forbidden in my Christian country home I learned to play the flattop on them good ol' Gospel songs Then I heard about the barrooms just across the Georgia line Where a boy could make a livin' playin' guitar late at night Had to learn about the ladies; too young to understand why the young girls fall in love with the boys in the band When the boys turn to music, the girls just turn away to some other guitar picker in some other late night place Yeah, I held on to my music; I let the ladies walk away took my songs and dreams to Nashville and then on to L.A. Up to New York City, all across the USA I lost so much of me but there's enough of me to say (that my) Chorus: ..home's in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head My home's in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred What keeps me goin'? I don't really know. can't be the money the Lord knows I'm always broke could it be the satisfaction of bein' understood when the people really love ya and let you know when it's good Well I'll speak my Southern English just as natural as I please I'm in the heart of Dixie, Dixie's in the heart of me and someday when I make it, when love finds a way somewhere high on Lookout Mountain I'll just smile with pride and say that my Chorus

Natural Woman

DEBORAH COX
You've gotta know You've won my heart and soul I can't just let go I gave you years crying a river of tears So you want a change baby, whose to blame My love burns like a flame Guess our love is dead And I guess I always will Chorus: I'm your natural woman I'll be there when there's no one Cause my loving is real But you dont see it now since you put me down But i'll be there for you when theres no one around You've been my life for you I've sacrificed stayed up every night that you didn't call how I worried all alone Things feeling so strange last night I called out your name Thought I saw your face here next to me Maybe someday soon it will be Chorus Baby can you tell me how could you leave lonely Baby when you know that I'll give you my only heart to you, whatever you do Baby don't be a fool Chorus till fade out

Deep Kick

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS "One Hot Minute"
It started when we were little kids free spirits but already tormented by our own hands given to us by our parents we got together and wrote on desks and slept in laundry rooms near snowy mountains slipped through whatever cracks we can find minds altered we didn't falter in portraying hysterical and tragic characters in a smog filled universe we loved the dirty city and the journeys away from it we had not yet been or seen our friends selves chase tails round and round in downward spiral leaving trail of irretrievable vital life juice behind still the brothersbloodcomradespartnerfamilycuzz was impenetrable and we lived inside it laughing with no clothes and everything experimental 'till death was upon us in our face mortality and lots of things seemed futile then but love and music can save us and did while the giant grey monster grew more poisoned and volatile around us jaws clamping down and spewing ugly shit around nothing is the same so we keep moving. Went off and got some hair cuts Lookin' wild got all drugged up Hopped a train into the night Got a ride with a transvestite Two boys in San Francisco Two boys in San Francisco Blasted off in a BART bathroom Those coppers woke us up Motherfuckers woke us up Two young brothers on a hover craft Telepathics love and belly laughs Storm the stage of Universal Slim shine talk box go subversal Papa's proud and so he sent us Pounding hearts full and relentless Two boys in London, England Two boys in London, England Climbing out of hostel windows Wearing gear so out but in though Come on kid and do the no no Two young brothers on a hover craft Telepathics, love and belly laughs We went to Fairfax High School Jumped off buildings into their pools We'd sit down and grease at Canters Run like hell they can't catch us Two boys in L.A. proper Two boys in L.A. proper Stealin' anything that we could Gotta sneak into the Starwood Gotta peak into the deep good I remember 10 years ago in Hollywood we did some good and we did some real bad stuff but the Butthole Surfers always said it's better to regret Something you did than something you didn't do We were young and we were looking for the deep kick... seen 'em come seen 'em go

Flamedown

Heaven 17 "How Men Are"
Look ahead, on the screen, Slim perfect creatures and they're just 16 Their eyes meet, this is it, The contact so much more than words can transmit he stands up, she gives in, Their first encounter, their embrace within A short ride, they arrive, There is no doubt that true love will survive Chorus: We are the geisha boys Doing it wrong again They are the chosen ones Doing it right Here come the temple girls Looking for sanctuary Naked as advertised For the first tie Here we are late at night We are both refugees There is no easy way Let it be right Anything's possible If you can fake it, but The wrong place is anywhere If you're not right If you turn away from the screen Another version can be seen She is black, he is white They love each other but they also fight Back from work, she's not home Another evening angry, all alone She arrives and he departs Misunderstandings, then the breakdown starts Chorus There's not much that you can do Choose either one of them it could be you The first time could be the only time The odds against you and your hopes decline Do it right, do it wrong Console yourself that either won't last long Geisha boys and temple girls Make contact or remain in separate worlds Chorus

Love Lies

JON BON JOVI "Bon Jovi"
I was lost, then I found you Never thought it would be this way I showed you my heart, left it unguarded Like a thief in the night you stole it away Now you're gone, the pain goes on and on I still hear you whispering to me through the shadows of the night Chorus: Love lies, you're just a victim of the headlines You're running on into a cold night You're just a number of the love lies All alone you call it survival He lost at love to a stranger's lines Walking the streets, searching with vengeance For a face that he dreams of night after night Time goes on, all signs of life stolen, simple dreams were all broken Best of times become desperation but how many tears must you cry to survive Chorus They met late one night in the city Both men knew only one would stay Scratched a picture of a heart on a bullet And took his life away Chorus

Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us

ALISON KRAUSS "Raising Sand"
Strange things are happening everyday I hear the music up above my head Though the sight of my heart has left me again I hear music up above Secrets are written in the sky Looks like I've lost the love I've never found Though the sound of hope has left me again I hear music up above Standing in my broken heart all night long Darkness held me like a friend when love wore off Looking for the lamb that's hidden in the cross The finder's lost I know I loved you too much I'll go alone to get through I hear Rosetta singing in the night Echos of light that shines like stars after they're gone And tonight she's my guide as I go on alone With the music up above
