Song, Song of the south sweet potato pie, and I shut my mouth gone, gone with the wind there aint no body looking back again cotton on roadside, cotton on the ditch we all picked the cotton but we never got rich daddy was a veteren, a southern democrat they oughta get rich man to vote like that song song of the south sweet potato pie, and i shut my mouth gone gone with the wind there aint no body looking back again well somebody told us wall street fell but we were so poor that we couldnt tell the cotton was short, and the weeds was' tall But Mr. Roosevelt's a' gonna save us all well momma got sick, and daddy got down the county got the farm, and we moved to town poppa got a job with the TVA we bought a washing machine, and then a Chevrolet singing: Song song of the south sweet potatoe pie, and I shut my mouth gone, gone with the wind there aint nobody looking back again repeat 6 times!

Conversation

EDEN
Tell me something Go on and break my heart Make me want to scream Just to wake myself inside How can you love me If you don't love yourself Stop this game, it's a crying shame How we tear each other apart I've got an aching head So many things unsaid I can hear your footsteps on the stairs And down below Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you Nagging and yelling is all you do Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you I'm though with you, I'm through Sweet, sweet memories I used to know We used to fight like snow against the sun 'Till it turned out right but then I said goodbye And it was for good But no one ever brought me Joy and fun the way you could Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you Don't slam the door like you did before Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you I'm through with you, I'm through Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you Don't slam the door like you did before Shut your mouth when I'm talking to you I'm not through with you, not through Hey, Jeff, how's it going I've got this desire growing Sometimes I'd do anything To have you as a friend again But it won't be easy It'll take a lot of guts But I will puck them all together If that is what you want If that is what you want

100 Thousand Sold Pt. 2

JIN "Jin Presents: The Emcee's Properganda"
I woke up this morning looked in the mirror and said its either me or you but its time for a change like Lyor Cohen thoughts start flowin when I hear a Def Jam I passed the torch from my right to my left hand I'm just a average joe with a far from average flow minus the fact I'm nice I'm sorta like you take my skills subtract it twice divide that by 2 that's you and that's about right but back to my life where the saga continues tell these promoters start lookin for some venues I'm backstage meditatin breathin easy waitin for the moment I'm signaled by Kameezy two thumbs up that's when I know it's a go The Emcee rocks every set like its his last show professionalism I hold in high regards cause to me this here is more than just a job it's the culmination of all that I believe hiphops the oxygen that I need to breathe success is measured by what one achieves I brushed my shoulders off and rolled up my sleeves see the empire ain't gonna build itself sick of sittin on the shelf went on a hiatus you are listenin to the greatest story never told the sequel to 100 thousand sold talk to 'em K... [Kamel breakdown] ...lets assume I made it plus accumlated a fanbase could you picture the look on this mans face a moment I cant wait for record wise only way I'll flop is if I ever stop affectin lives I got a point to get across now whether 1 person get it or a million the message isn't lost of course I want plaques that's certified diamond but more than that I just love rhymin perfect timin when when I flow my styles far from Common plus I aint from Chicago but big up to Mr. Lynn who motivated me to spit again and we aint ever interact ready to quit lost balance got my center back BE reminded me why I even got into rap the boom bap when you feel like you in a room trapped and the only escape is in the form of a tape for every situation theres a song to relate at that moment I knew that I belong with the greats it's the freestyle specialist slash song writer pull a all nighter just to make the song tighter tryin to sell 10 million copies you so hopeless I'm workin on a 100K I'm so focused you know I got mine fasho so that's just 99 thousand 999 to go... [Kamel (outro)]

That Lonesome Song

JAMEY JOHNSON "That Lonesome Song"
That mornin' sun made its way Through the windshield of my Chevrolet Whiskey eyes and ashtray breath On a chert rock gravel road What the hell did I do last night? That's the story of my life, Like tryin' to remember words To a song nobody wrote And it's sad and it's long And can't nobody sing along It's a south bound train It's a whistle in the wind Ain't no one there to care where I've been I'm hummin' on that lonesome song again I took a trip across the country from Montgomery Discovered I'd been wrong for so long I thought it was the fame and the glory and the money But all I've got to show is a damn song And it's sad and it's long And can't nobody sing along It's a south bound train It's a whistle in the wind There's no one there to sing to in the end I'm hummin' on that lonesome song again And it's sad and it's long And can't nobody sing along It's a south bound train It's a whistle in the wind Ain't no one there to care where I've been I'm hummin' on that lonesome song again The mornin' sun made its way Through the windshield of my Chevrolet Whiskey eyes and ashtray breath On a chert rock gravel road...

God Save The South

NAZARETH "Boogaloo"
It was a red hot night night in Mobile Sweat glistened on the reverend's chin His mohair suit was shinin' He told us all about sin It could be wall to wall in Wall Street We could be livin' hand to mouth Jesus loved a yankee But God saved the south Across the street in the pool hall Bubba put the eight ball down It's a high five celebration They passed the Jack around It's wall to wall in Wall Street We're livin' hand to mouth Jesus loved a yankee But God saved the south God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth Yes, God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth Shut your mouth Some long haired boys with guitars Playin' behind the chicken wire They're goin' up to New York City Gonna sing about Atlanta's fire It could be wall to wall in Wall Street We could be livin' hand to mouth Jesus loved a yankee But God saved the south And God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth Yes, God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth Yes, God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth And God saved the south So,Yankee boy shut your mouth And God saved the south Yankee boy shut your mouth Yes, God saved the south So, Yankee boy shut your mouth God saved the south So, Yankee boy shut your mouth

Sweeter For Me

JOAN BAEZ "Gulf Winds"
(Words and Music by Joan Baez) Red telephone sitting by my bed Practically bore your name Lying alone in the twilight zone Waiting for your call to come in Hadn't been for the kid Who was sleeping upstairs You'd have found me well on my way On that midnight plane to L.A. You suffered sweeter for me Than anyone I've ever known I dared to look into the years Would you still have your wife? I dared to peer through my tears Could we ever have a life? Even thought I was pregnant by you But I didn't care I just talked to my son Would he mind another one? You suffered sweeter for me Than anyone I've ever known Once more the mist rolls to the sea Like a hundred times we've known Trees are faded and the clouds have stopped Where the wind had blown How I dread when the evening comes And I cannot be What you want me to be When you are next to me How silent you are as the veils come down Before my eyes Soft and reserved as you move away Donning your disguise While every folk song that I ever knew Once more comes true And loves grows old And waxes cold You suffered sweeter for me Than anyone I've ever known Just one favor of you, my love If I should die today Take me down to where the hills Meet the sea on a stormy day Ride a ridge on a snow white horse And throw my ashes away To the wind and the sand Where my song began You suffered sweeter for me Than anyone I've ever known  1976, 1977 Gabriel Earl Music (ASCAP)
