JOHN DENVER lyrics - A Christmas Together

Noel: Christmas Eve 1913

Original and similar lyrics
(Bridges/Holdridge) A frosty Christmas Eve, when the stars where shining, I traveled for the home, where westward falls the hill. And for many, many a village, in the darkness of the valley, distant music reached me, peels of bells were ringing. Then spread my thoughts to olden times, to that first of Christmases when shepherds who were watching, heard music in the fields. And they sat there and they marveled, and they knew they could not tell whether it were angels, or the bright stars a singing. But to me heard a far, it was starry music, the singing of the angels, the comfort of our Lord. Words of old that come a traveling, by the riches of the times, and I softly listened, as I stood upon the hill. And I softly listened, as I stood upon the hill.

Built To Last

GRATEFUL DEAD "Built To Last"
There are times when you must beckon, There are times when you must fall. You can take a lot of wrecking, But you can't take it all. There are times when I can help you out, And times when you must fall. There are times when you must live in doubt, And I can't help at all. Two blue stars, shine o'er the hill. Plead no more, now just be still. Through the night, now safely there. Show me something built to last. Been held by the fire, Yes and I'm, held by the ring. You can walk on balls of fire, But sometimes you might bleed. There are times when I have begged you And you do the same to me. If you can't or won't admit it, At least we pulled you through. Three blue stars, set o'er the hill. Call them back; you never will. All these trials, soon be dead. We all need something built to last. Built to last 'till time of seven, Falls tumbling from the sky. Built to last 'till lightness fades, And darkness falls on all. Built to last 'till years roll back Our couch perched in the sky Show me something different, Or something built to try. There are times when you get hit up on, Try hard but you cannot give. Other times, you'd gladly go with what you need to give. Don't be afraid to save your face, When you have done your best Now I won't forget, Next day try the rest. All the stars, are gone but one. Morning dreams, we found the Sun. Show me something built to last Two blue stones, shine o'er the hill. Call it back; you never will All these trials, now are dead. Show me something built to last. All the stars, are gone but one. Morning dreams. Here comes the sun. Through the night, now sinking fast. Show me something built to last.

Stranger With The Melodies

HARRY CHAPIN "Legends of the Lost Found"
It was my first night in that rooming house. In the last room down the hall I heard a hoarse voice and an old guitar Coming through the paper thin walls. A crazy nonsense nursery rhyme that did not mean a thing. But for the first of what was to be a thousand times, This is what I hear him sing. . . Hold that D chord on the old guitar, 'Til I found the G. Drop it down to old E minor 'Til the A chord rolls back home around to D. I had to lay there listening. It seemed he was in the room. This stranger with his melody, Singing there in the gloom. And he repeated it over and over again, Such a soft and sinkin' sound. It was kind of like a music box that was slowly winding down. You see, he sang it, he hummed it, Whistled it, and he strummed it, He laughed it and he cried it, He did everything but hide it. And he sang . . . Hold that D chord on the old guitar 'Til I found the G Drop it down to old E minor 'Til the A chord rolls back home around for me So I lay there in that lumpy bed, Countin' choruses instead of sheep. 'Til I banged on the wall and out I called, Hey bub I need some sleep. The sudden void of silence, then I heard that hoarse voice say, It weren't so long ago boy, they paid me to play I said, It's kind of late for music sir, Two hours til it's daylight He answered, I need my music most In these dark hours of the night. You see I've tried gettin' high on something son, But it only brings me down. Staying dry don't work out better boy, 'Cause my eyes get wet and I drown. Won't you please let me continue And I'll be in your debt. You see I'm not singing to remember son, I'm just singing to forget And he sang .. . Hold that D chord on the old guitar 'Til I found the G Drop it down to old E minor 'Til the A chord rolls back home around for me. That's when I said, If I'm supposed to listen to you sir, Just one quick question then. Why in the hell do you sing one song Over and over again? And this is what he said. . . He said, I gave her the music son, She gave me the words. Together we'd write the kind of songs The angels must have heard. Of course we'd fight like cats and dogs, But life ain't no rosebud dream. Still whatever we'd do everybody knew We truly were a team. I can't remember now if I done her wrong Or if she done wrong to me But all I know that when I let her go That it did not set me free'' That's when I said, You sound like what's-his-name He said, That's who I am. But you can't wrap a name around you boy, 'Cause it really don't mean a damn. You see, a song don't have much meaning When it dan't have nothing to say. What she could do was magic son, All I could do was play He started singing again. That's when I drifted off Maybe I dreamed what I heard 'Bout this stranger with his melody Who'd gone and lost the words. Hold that D chord on the old guitar 'Til I found the G Drop it down to old E minor 'Til the A chord rolls back home around to D

Singing With Angels

SUZI QUATRO "In The Spotlight"
I heard your voice late last night I heard you say are you lonesome tonight I saw you crying in the chapel light Love me tender and treat me nice Lonely boy got the G.I. Blues That's allright mama's watching over you Wise men say if you don't be cruel You'll get to heaven wearing blue suede shoes [Chorus] Singing with angels, safe in God's promised land Singing with angels, walking hand in hand Singing with angels, it's part of God's master plan There's so many angels walking hand in hand What a beautiful land I got a woman she's my happiness Don't leave me now in my loneliness Heartbreak hotel I was counting on you Thought I had a lot of living to do The blue moon of Kentucky shines Burning love makes suspicious minds Mystery train heading for the light Gracelands star burning bright [Chorus] [repeat x3] Elvis has left the building

Voices Singing

Billy Dean "Real Man"
(Richard Leigh/Billy Dean) Choir Vocals -St. Nicholas School Children's Choir of Chattanooga, TN I found some shade beneath the willow tree I fell asleep and started dreaming That everything created here on Earth All had voices singing Every rock and every blade of grass Even the ivy that was clinging Every leap and every drop of rain All had voices singing It brought the angels down In my dream so clear And the Lord sat down.So that He could hear The sea and waves were rushing to the shore With the joy that they were bringing A sound so perfect that it made Him cry To hear their voices singing I could not help but want to add my own To all the praises that were ringing And over all the world there fell a hust To hear my one voice singing And as the Lord sat down The angels hovered near But they made no sound So that He could hear Halleujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, I heard voices singing Halleujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, I heard voices singing
