JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Guitar Song

Even The Skies Are Blue

Original and similar lyrics
These are sad times World gone mad times Men doing bad time Lord what is this world going to Between religions and wars Drugs and divorce Hell it seems like the whole world is fight'n The sun might be shining But even the skies are blue These are hard days Heavy old hard days Dead string guitar days And the devil is picking his tune When daddy's quit staying And the mommas quit praying Even the children quit fight'n God must be crying Cause even the skies are blue If we all know a way To make a better day Why Isnt anyone trying The sun might be shining But even the skies are blue

Hard Times For An Honest Man

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "Lonesome Jubilee"
One man Does his work He's not satisfied Not at all Feels like That he is being used His self respect starts to fall His frustration Runnin' very very high He takes it out On the one he loves Because it's safe And who they gonna tell And he hates the cold-bloodedness That runs inside Chorus Oh yes It's hard times For an honest man Very very very hard times Hard times for an honest man Very very very hard times Sister She's got a lot of pride You can see it when she walks into the room But she's young And she's unaware Of what a brutal world can do to you So she loves a man He lies like a dog Tears her little world all apart So the walls go up For the rest of her days And there ain't no man can touch this girl's heart Chorus So we walk From the front porch to the back yard Just to laugh and say hello and say good-bye But some days are hard, like a soldier's steel-toed boots And the rent we pay to stay here gets high Chorus

Patches Of Blue

JERRY REED "Better Things In Life"
I see patches of blue all the clouds drift away Your love put the blue skies back in my lonely days I thought the sun would never shine in this lonely world of mine Then you came by now there's patches of blue in my lonely sky Yesterday was gone still I kept hanging on to old memories And constantly the past would haunt my dreams And cloudy skies would seem to fill my empty days with such a lonely gray A world without sunshine a world all alone Tied to a mem'ry that still lingered on Till you came my way now I somehow forget yesterday And I see patches of blue all the clouds drift away Your sweet love put the blue skies back in my lonely days I thought the sun would never shine in this lonely world of mine Then you came by now there's patches of blue in my lonely sky

Come To Life

JEFFERSON STARSHIP "Dragon Fly"
Everything, everything has come to life again I have no doubts but the ice got thin What came too soon was so hard to keep So full a harvest it was hard to reap There were times seemed just like the walls would crumble Shoot from the hip and pray for trouble Stone-cold sober and a-seeing double How that midnight band could ramble Taking mansions and leaving shambles Remember other times and places Last night's dance, the glowing faces All the lights, the shadows in the hall Seeking higher peaks from which to fall Remember, we were telling you That time would stop and nations fall Now we find the lies come true Can you tell me, tell me, tell me What are we to do? Because the good old days Those good old days are all dead and gone Good-bye and bless them all, every one What was true has passed the test Just as well forget the rest Half of what you saw was not yours to know Let it go. Everything has come to life again

Blue Skies

JIM REEVES "A Touch Of Velvet"
Blue skies smilin' at me Nothin' but blue skies do I see Bluebirds singin' a song Nothin' but bluebirds all day long. I never saw the sun shinin' so bright Never saw things goin' so right Noticing the days hurrying by When you're in love, my how they fly. Blue days, all of them gone Nothin' but blue skies from now on Blue skies smilin' at me Nothin' but blue skies do I see Bluebirds singin' a song Nothin' but bluebirds all day long. I never saw the sun shinin' so bright Never saw things goin' so right Noticing the days hurrying by When you're in love, Oh, my how they fly My blue days, all of them gone Nothin' but blue skies from now on...

Hard Times Comin'

JOHNNY CASH "John R. Cash"
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears While we all sup sorrow with the poor There's a song that will linger forever in our ears Oh, hard times, come again no more. 'Tis the song, the sign of the weary Hard times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door Oh hard times, come again no more. While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay There are frail forms fainting at the door Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say Oh, hard times, come again no more. 'Tis the song, the sign of the weary Hard times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door Oh hard times, come again no more. There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away With a worn heart, whose better days are o'er Though her voice it would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day Oh, hard times, come again no more. 'Tis the song, the sign of the weary Hard times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door Oh hard times, come again no more. 'Tis the song, the sign of the weary Hard times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door Oh hard times, come again no more.
