Harris Emmylou lyrics - Cowgirl's Prayer

Jersusalem Tomorrow

Original and similar lyrics
(David Olney) Man you should have seen me way back then I could tell a tale, I could make a spin I could tell you black was white I could tell you day was night Not only that I could tell you why Back then I could really tel a lie Well I'd hire a kid to say he was lame Then I'd touch him and make him walk again Then I'd pull some magic trick I'd pretend to heal the sick I was takin' everything they had to give It wasn't all that bad a way to live Well I'm in this desert town and it's hot as hell But no one's buyin' what I got to sell I make my lame kid walk I make a dumb guy talk I'm preachin' up a storm both night and day But everyone just turns and walks away Well I can see that I'm only wasting time So I head across the road to drink some wine This old man comes up to me He says I seen you on the street You're pretty good if I do say myself But the guy that come thru here last month he was somethin' else Instead of callin' out for fire from above He just gets real quiet and talks about love And I'll tell you somethin' funny He didn't want nobody's money Now I'm not exactly sure what this all means But it's the damndest thing I swear I've ever seen Well since that time every town is the same I can't make a dime, I don't know why I came I decide I'll go and find him And find out who's behind him He has everyone convinced that he's for real Well I figure we can work us out a deal So he offers me a job and I say fine He says I'll get paid off on down the line Well I guess I'll string along Don't see how too much can go wrong As long as he pays my way I guess I'll follow We're headed for Jerusalem tomorrow

First Redneck On The Internet

Cledus T. Judd "Did I Shave My Back For This?"
Well, Lordy, mercy, I's in a mess, My wife run off with my TV set, Didn't bother me none that she had to go, 'Cept I's gonna miss all my TV shows. So I looked up to heaven, got down on my knees. An' I cried: Dear Lord, will you help me, please. I need a TV by tomorrow night, 'Cos Rick Flare's involved in a talent fight. Well I guess my tytheing finally paid off, 'Cos early next mornin' shoulda seen what I saw. Reached in my overhorse for my inhaler, 'Cos there's a big brown box there, right in my trailer. I used my truck keys, cut open the box, I was hopin' for a Sony or a Microbox. I looked at the name and thought: Oh my gosh! This must be a new one called Macintosh. Well my last TV was a whole lot wider, But this'n here come with its own typewriter. It had all the letters from A to Z, I guess you just type in what you wanna see. Well I thought I punched up: You Done Help, But the TV Screen said World Wide Web. Then I broke out in a cold, cold sweat: I's the first redneck on the internet. He was the first red neck on the internet, A bona fide, countrified, cyber-threat. He went on line just one time, And now they won't forget, The first redneck on the internet. It was all so new, I shoulda taken my time, But I slammed that mouse up in four-wheel drive. Last time I did so much pointin' and clickin' I had a .22 rifle shootin' at chickens. Then, all of a sudden it occurred to me, The power I had with this fancy TV. I could get back at my ex-wife, With the touch of a button, I could ruin her life. So I got the number off her Mastercard, I bought a new lift kit and four new tyres. Then, I got on line to her bank account, Went ahead and closed that sucker out. I had her power and her water shut, slap, off. The I sent an to her dead plain boss, Lettin' him know that she told me, She'd have his job by the end of the week. He was the first red neck on the internet, A bona fide, countrified, cyber-threat. He went on line just one time, And now they'll never forget, (Won't forget.) The first redneck on the internet. Now the moral of the story, as a matter of fact, In a couple of days I got my TV back. She said she'd like to come back, as well. I told her to go straight to AOL. Now, thank the Lord that the UPS, For droppin' that box at Cledus' address. If they ever wanna find him, it won't take long, Type www.cledus.com To reach the first red neck on the internet, A bona fide, countrified, cyber-threat. He went on line just one time, And now they'll never forget, (Won't forget.) He was the first red neck on the internet. The first red neck on the internet. Hey Buck, p'preciate your help. You ARE the man. World Wide Web, population Four Zillion. Cy hoot

Thousand Mile Wish

FINGER ELEVEN
Forgive me if now I wear the face of worry This time alone could never cause any doubt But I've been cold too long Such a strange time to find myself coming down as the rain With all the holes my love, To fill up from the middle This storm could stay all night So can you stay until we close our eyes Til your dreams hold mine Just stay until we know we tried one more time Cause laughing lovers can overcome their closest demons And they'll go on and they won't let go They saw something that they know Has never come so close Can it stay here for us, for now? Can it stay until we know ourselves? I'm torn as I tell You're the story that I know and fell from I'm so far into your story I don't know why We think we're in control When we lie between the lines We'll find a line to follow It's got to show real soon Or we'll never each this high We climb a little further Cause there's nothing we can't get around together Further gets colder until nothing was all that I saw around So we stay until the ground That we can't come down from splits us away Maybe stars know why we fall I just wish they were thinking out loud Oh, I could wish all night

Social Disease

ELTON JOHN "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road"
My bulldog is barking in the backyard Enough to raise a dead man from his grave And I can't concentrate on what I'm doing Disturbance going to crucify my days And the days they get longer and longer And the nighttime is a time of little use For I just get ugly and older I get juiced on Mateus and just hang loose And I get bombed for breakfast in the morning I get bombed for dinner time and tea I dress in rags, smell a lot, and have a real good time I'm a genuine example of a social disease My landlady lives in a caravan Well that is when she isn't in my arms And it seems I pay the rent in human kindness But my liquor also helps to grease her palms And the ladies are all getting wrinkles And they're falling apart at the seams Well I just get high on tequila And see visions of vineyards in my dreams

Friend Or Foe '98

JAY-Z "In My Lifetime Vol. 1"
[Verse One:] I'm done talking Ran up in the spot gun smoking Shot it in the air, one woke him Sun-soaking, sweating in his bed like Dunlo Thinking to himself what done provoked him His thoughts is racing like a vulcan I swear I saw a lightbulb when He finally figured out who was the culprit I said yeah, remember me from Friend or Foe when I told you don't ever ever come around here no more Time to pay now, you try to rise, I wave the gun - lay down This time you're really going to listen to Jay now I try to talk sensibly, hoping that eventually you realize I had this locked and it just wasn't meant to be Plus I had sympathy when we all wore rams with your keys And it wasn't afterthought that maybe you'll try to revenge me But I was like 'Nah', Chromes had to know he was wrong And if you caught me on the foul now you would sing me the same song Plus you promised And that's really no fun Yeah I find you in this Motel 6 with all these guns And all your goons, lined up in adjoining rooms Like some wild cowboys coming to get me at high noon But my mind's like a flower in bloom *** my eyes just scower the room I'm alert, plus I paid the clerk I got it laid out You think you the first nigga I played out, in a 2 hotel town Come on now, I peep your Lexus at you Left the exit got some niggas on that side of the town Money well invested, rudely interrupted Jamaican accents *** A gun in your face and that's all you can come up with I'm done talking, back up and clap them, one in the abdomen Do me a favor dude, get 2 ice cubes I pass them Take that ice up, for the nicest MC And please yo, tell BIG, he's unbelievable Friend or foe BIOTCH!

Highway Patrolman

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Nebraska"
My name is Joe Roberts I work for the state I'm a sergeant out of Perrineville barracks number 8 I always done an honest job as honest as I could I got a brother named Franky and Franky ain't no good Now ever since we was young kids it's been the same come down I get a call over the radio Franky's in trouble downtown Well if it was any other man, I'd put him straight away But when it's your brother sometimes you look the other way Me and Franky laughin' and drinkin' nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria as the band played 'Night of the Johnstown Flood' I catch him when he's strayin' like any brother would Man turns his back on his family well he just ain't no good Well Franky went in the army back in 1965 I got a farm deferment, settled down, took Maria for my wife But them wheat prices kept on droppin' till it was like we were gettin' robbed Franky came home in '68, and me, I took this job Yea we're laughin' and drinkin' nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria as the band played 'Night of the Johnstown Flood' I catch him when he's strayin', teach him how to walk that line Man turns his back on his family he ain't no friend of mine Well the night was like any other, I got a call 'bout quarter to nine There was trouble in a roadhouse out on the Michigan line There was a kid lyin' on the floor lookin' bad bleedin' hard from his head there was a girl cryin' at a table and it was Frank, they said Well I went out and I jumped in my car and I hit the lights Well I must of done one hundred and ten through Michigan county that night It was out at the crossroads, down round Willow bank Seen a Buick with Ohio plates behind the wheel was Frank Well I chased him through them county roads till a sign said Canadian border five miles from here I pulled over the side of the highway and watched his taillights disappear Me and Franky laughin' and drinkin' Nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria as the band played 'Night of the Johnstown Flood' I catch him when he's strayin' like any brother would Man turns his back on his family well he just ain't no good
