JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Dollar

Flying Silver Eagle

Original and similar lyrics
Standing at that pawn shop counter Trying on the wedding rings She said she needed silver 'Cause gold just turns her green I counted out the twenties And I laid the money down And we went straight to the Davidson courthouse After three long years together She found a banker man She said she was thinking 'bout her future And gave me back that silver band I had it melted down So I could wear in on a chain Now it's a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring I'd rather have this silver eagle Than all that rich man's gold It's my one reminder of A women turning cold Her love lies in his money And mines in a pair of wings On a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring I couldn't put the past behind me So I put it in a song That's how I tell the story How that women did me wrong Now I tour across the country Riding high on the wings Of a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring I'd rather have this silver eagle Than all that rich man's gold It's my one reminder of A women turning cold Her love lies in his money And mines in a pair of wings On a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring I met a homeless man on Broadway He was holding out his hand He asked me for a dollar Said he was once a banker man 'Til that lady took his money I said man I feel your pain You might could use this silver eagle You know it used to be a ring

Silver Eagle Express

Kinky Friedman "Old Testaments New Revelations"
(Kinky Friedman, Roger Friedman) And I'd ride the Silver Eagle to the last town on the line, Railroad ties are not my friend the only ties that bind. Just watch the troubled countryside gently fall away, Silver Eagle, hold me, guide me, roll me homeward from today. Lose the track of time and let it flow back, Stoke the ancient furnace into flames. Running barefoot in the cinders of the moat pack Hoppin' bedtime rides with the outlaw Jesse James. But now my heart's a worn and weary vessel. I been haulin' dreams that never seem to last. Once I slept beside a trembling trestle, Woke up lost across the rusty lifelines to the past. And I'd ride the Silver Eagle to the last town on the line, Railroad ties are not my friend the only ties that bind. Just watch the troubled countryside gently fall away, Silver Eagle, hold me, guide me, roll me homeward from today. Freedom's only station to station, A paper suitcase on the track of time. Ain't hard to tell a hard luck situation, Ain't hard to tell a homeless country poet out of rhyme. I'm gonna ride the Silver Eagle to the last town on the line, There's nothing to remember if there's nothing to remind. From the gentle Texas sunshine to the Colorado snow Ain't no one here to hold you, boy, when the good Lord lets you go.

DISPATCH "Silent Steeples"
the river of doubt gave birth to a beautiful stone and in my hands I held it and I knew I was on my own so I picked it up and held it to the sky and in my reflection. I knew I was all alone then I saw this girl with the most beautiful hair she had it wrapped around her for clothes she did not wear I asked her for a lock and she complied, after leaving gorgeous footsteps in the sand as if she didn't care she was the prettiest girl I ever saw the stone lay still without a flaw the feelings I had defied the law as I came to, I went to and I took a look, a look down the road to see a badger and a one eyed toad they didn't say a word, they just looked at me with that wise old look of the old then I went to down to town to my favorite merry-go-round to the place where magic horses fly and you seldom see a frown [CHORUS] but then I stole a ring from the flying horses and I can't begin to explain how I stole a ring from the flying horses and it's all rusty now I stole a ring from the flying horses and I can't begin to explain how I stole a ring from the flying horses and it's all rusty now You see 'cause that stone fell through my pocket and that lock of hair flew away with the wind If you chance to meet upon either well you know where they've been but don't pick them up or try to find me they're much happier to be on their own beauty like that knows no home and then if you take a look, a look down the road you'll see a badger and a one eyed toad they won't say a workd they'll just look at you with that wise look of the old [CHORUS]

After The Goldrush

NEIL YOUNG
Well, I dreamed I saw the knights In armor coming, Saying something about a queen. There were peasants singing and Drummers drumming And the archer split the tree. There was a fanfare blowing To the sun That was floating on the breeze. Look at Mother Nature on the run In the nineteen seventies. Look at Mother Nature on the run In the nineteen seventies. I was lying in a burned out basement With the full moon in my eyes. I was hoping for replacement When the sun burst thru the sky. There was a band playing in my head And I felt like getting high. I was thinking about what a Friend had said I was hoping it was a lie. Thinking about what a Friend had said I was hoping it was a lie. Well, I dreamed I saw the silver Space ships flying In the yellow haze of the sun, There were children crying And colors flying All around the chosen ones. All in a dream, all in a dream The loading had begun. They were flying Mother Nature's Silver seed to a new home in the sun. Flying Mother Nature's Silver seed to a new home.
