JOHN ANDERSON lyrics - Takin' The Country Back

Sara

Original and similar lyrics
First date, first kiss Well I never will forget The way you looked that night Parked out, 'cross town Watchin' the stars fall down Girl your hair was soft and brown and Just before we get too far I'd hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back Made plans, got rings And had us a million dreams Where our road might lead It wasn't long, we had a truck With all of our things boxed up Left town in a cloud of dust and Got movin', improvin' Why I can't say But suddenly it seems to be Such a long way back I've tried, you've tried And nobody's satisfied Is this where it all ends We can't be so far down Where we can't turn around Pick up this love we found Just before we get too far I hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way Just before we get too far I here you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back.

Feleena

MARTY ROBBINS
Out in New Mexico, many long years ago There in a shack on the desert, one night in a storm Amid streaks of lightnin' and loud desert thunder, to a young Mexican couple, a baby was born; Just as the baby cried, thunder and lightnin' die, moon gave it's light to the world and the stars did the same Mother and Father, both proud of the daughter, that heaven had sent them, Feleena was this baby's name. When she was seventeen, bothered by crazy dreams She ran away from the shack and left them to roam Father and Mother, both asked one another What made her run away, what made Feleena leave home; Tired of the desert nights, fartherly grieved to strife She ran away late one night in the moon's golden gleam She didn't know where she'd go, but she'd get there And she would find happiness, if she would follow her dream. After she ran away, she went to Sante Fe And in the year that she stayed there, she learned about life In just a little while, she learned that with a smile She could have pretty clothes, she could be any man's wife; Rich men romanced her, they dined and they danced her She understood men and she treated them all just the same A form that was fine and rare, dark shining glossy hair Lovely to look at Feleena was this woman's name. Restless in Sante Fe, she had to get away To any town where the lights had a much brighter glow One cowboy mentioned the town of El Paso They never stopped dancin' and money like whiskey did flow; She bought a one-way, a ticket from Sante Fe Three days and nights on a stage with a rest now and then She didn't mind that, she knew she would find that Her new life would be more exciting than where she had been. The stage made it's last stop, up there on the mountain top To let her see all of the lights at the foot of the hill Her world was brighter and deep down inside her An uncontrolled beating, her young heart just wouldn't be still; She got a hotel, a room at the Lily Belle Quickly she changed to a form-fitting black satin dress Ev'ry man stopped to stare, at this form fine and rare Even the women remarked of the charm she possessed. Dancin' and laughter, was what she was after And Rosa's Cantina had lights, with love in the gleam That's what she hunted and that's what she wanted Rosa's was one place, a nice girl would never be seen; It was the same way, it was back in Sante Fe Men would make fools of themselves at the thought of romance Rosa took heed of, the place was in need of This kind of excitement, so she paid Feleena to dance. A year passed and maybe more and then through the swingin' doors Came a young cowboy so tall and so handsomely dressed This one was new in town, hadn't been seen around He was so different, he wasn't like all of the rest; Feleena danced close to him, then threw a rose to him Quickly he walked to her table and there he sat down And in a day or so, wherever folks would go They'd see this young cowboy, showin' Feelena the town. Six weeks he went with her, each minute spent with her But he was insanely jealous of glances she'd give Inside he was a-hurtin', from all of her flirtin' That was her nature and that was the way that she lived; She flirted one night, it started a gun-fight And after the smoke cleared away, on the floor lay a man Feleena's young lover, had shot down another And he had to leave there, so out through the back door he ran. The next day at five o'clock, she heard a rifle shot Quickly she ran to the door, that was facin' the pass She saw her cowboy, her wild-ridin' cowboy Low in the saddle, her cowboy was ridin' in fast; She ran to meet him, to kiss and to greet him He saw her and motioned her back, with a wave of his hand Bullets were flyin', Feleena was cryin' As she saw him fall from the saddle and into the sand. Feleena knelt near him, to hold and to hear him When she felt the warm blood that flowed from the wound in his side He raised to kiss her and she heard him whisper 'Never forget me - Faleena it's over, goodbye.' Quickly she grabbed for, the six-gun that he wore And screamin' in anger and placin' the gun to her breast Bury us both deep and maybe we'll find peace And pullin' the trigger, she fell 'cross the dead cowboy's chest. Out in El Paso, whenever the wind blows If you listen closely at night, you'll hear in the wind A woman is cryin', it's not the wind sighin' Old timer's tell you, Feleena is callin' for him; You'll hear them talkin' and you'll hear them walkin' You'll hear them laugh and you'll look, but there's no one around Don't be alarmed - there is really no harm there It's only the young cowboy, showin' Feleena the town

Knuckle Too Far

JAMES "Laid"
Slow down, my brother, your life is passing fast Will you remember all these scenes that you've passed So long, so long Speeding past sunset, blurring from town to town Faces I forget, hotels all look the same Worn down the knuckle too far So long, so long Lost are your colors, now life's in black and white Steals from a movie, this life's a trick of the light Worn down the knuckle too far Worn down City of strangers, you seem so tired to me Don't think I'll stay here, you don't seem friendly I'll keep on moving, searching for peace of mind Rivers unwinding maybe I'll find it this time So long, so long So long Live from my suitcase, my life's within my hands Sleep in a strange bed, hometown's a foreign land Down, the knuckle too far

Billy

WAYLON JENNINGS "I've Always Been Crazy"
Billy we've come along way together and through it all You've been just like a brother to me And Billy we've had our share of ups and downs Froze our tails sleeping on the ground When the jobs were few and far between. We've been knocking around together so long Singing them same old songs Been out in the rain so long I swear we're shrinking Billy lately I have done some thinking. When I look back on our lives We've sure had ourself a time But you know it's been a wild world we traveled And it's startin' to unravel. We leave so many loose ends behind We've been bucked off and kicked so many times And the ground just keeps gettin' harder Billy you know well as I we ain't gettin' no younger. Billy another summer's come and gone Now with winter coming on I know we planned on heading south But Billy I thought about it several days And these words I'm about to say. They don't taste good in my mouth But there's someone who's waiting back home Lord, if she'll still have me Guess I'll be saying so long you go on without me. Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas I said hi...
