JOHN CAFFERTY & THE BEAVER BROWN BAND lyrics - Tough All Over

Strangers In Paradise

Original and similar lyrics
Billy said when he was seventeen, There ain't nothin left here for me now, A small town boy with American dreams He was California bound, He said "I'm gonna make it, Damned if I don't try, You know I just won't take it, This life won't pass me by", Billy grew into a blue-eyed handsome man, The road it left him hard and lean, He lost his heart to a southern girl, She made him feel just like James Dean, And her name was Rita, She said her love was deep, Billy bought her promises, She could never keep [Chorus:] Strangers in paradise, Long and lonely nights, Never had a dream come true, Strangers in paradise, Long and lonely nights, Searched their whole lives through Billy rode those highway lines, Till they one day brought him back home, He took a job, And he took a wife, And he worked real hard for things of his own, Said "I'm gonna make it, Damned if I don't try, You know I just won't take it, This life won't pass me by", [Chorus]

Billy The Kid

Guthrie Woody
Billy The Kid I'll sing you a true song of Billy the Kid, I'll sing of the desperate deeds that he did, Way out in New Mexico, long long ago When a man's only chance was his own 44. When Billy the Kid was a very young lad In the old Silver City he went to the bad Way out in the West with a gun in his hand At the age of twelve years he first killed his man. Fair Mexican maidens play guitars and sing A song about Billy, the boy bandit king How ere his young manhood had reached its sad end He'd a notch on his pistol for twenty-one men. 'Twas on the same night when poor Billy died He said to his friends: I am not satisfied. There are twenty-one men I have put bullets through And sheriff Pat Garrett must make twenty-two. Now this is how Billy the Kid met his fate, The bright moon was shining, the hour was late Shot down by Pat Garrett, who once was his friend The young outlaw's life had now come to its end. There's many a man with a face fine and fair Who starts out in life with a chance to be square, But just like poor Billy he wanders astray And loses his life in the very same way. Note: This song -- a pretty good one, I think -- is remembered mainly because Woody Guthrie used the tune for the verse of So Long, It's Been Good to Know You.

Nobody Knows

BABYFACE
I pretended I'm glad you went away These four walls closin' more every day And I'm dying inside And nobody knows it but me Like a clown I put on a show The pain is real even if nobody knows Now I'm cryin' inside And nobody knows it but me Why didn't I say The things I needed to say How could I let my angel get away Now my world is just a-tumblin' down I can see it so clearly But you're nowhere around 1-The nights are lonely The days are so sad And I just keep thinkin' about The love that we had And I'm missin' you And nobody knows it but me I carry a smile when I'm broken in two Now I'm nobody without someone like you I'm tremblin' inside, and nobody knows it but me I lie awake, its a quarter past three I'm screamin' at night As if I thought you'd hear me Yeah my heart is callin' you And nobody knows it but me How blue can I get You could ask my heart But like a jigsaw puzzle its been torn all apart A million words couldn't say just how I feel A million years from now you know I'll be lovin' you still (repeat 1) Tomorrow mornin' I'm hittin' the dusty road Gonna find you wherever, ever you might go I'm gonna unload my heart And hope you come back to me Said when the nights are lonely...

Climb The Gate

HAREM SCAREM
(Hess/Lesperance) Remeber the lost summer nights We never found a warmer breeze If we're lost in time I'm stayin' here and never gonna leave I remember the look in your eyes Is it something that I'll never see again We're gonna make it right 'Cos I'm not searching till the bitter end It's been a long time coming I'm tired of failing you It's been a long time coming It's time to face the truth They're old habits that Die Off Hard Invading our love It keeps growing stronger Die Off Hard Now pain won't let go It keeps growing stronger in us Through the years I find Nothing's straight it's just another haze So unless we try to fight a dawning Of a graceless age We'll encompass a life destined to the cold beliefs we had We're gonna make it right I won't live a life I never wanted to lead

In The Morning

MARY MARY "Incredible"
[Chorus:] In the morning you'll be alright In the morning the sun's gonna shine In the morning no clouds in the sky When it's dark in your life just wait for the daylight Someone tell me what's wrong Why my nights last so long It's gettin' hard to believe You can hear me Then you give me a sign That You heard me pray You let me know This dark night won't last always [Chorus] So many ups and downs You don't know where to start So many nights you cried Life was breakin' your heart It may seem real hard Ain't no help in sight But don't you worry About it tonight 'cause [Chorus] There's gonna be a day It's gonna get cloudy You can't see clear {You can't see clearly, no} But don't you stop prayin' Prayin' for the day When the sun will shine (Shine) again {Ooh...ooh...ooh...} [Chorus]
