The Mountain Song

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Autograph album, and has also been released on The Country Roads Collection album. I came here from the city A thousand miles away I came just for a little while You know I never meant to stay I meant to take my pleasure Have a good time and be gone But I fell in love with a lady Now I sing a mountain song I listened to the music Of the night wind in the pines I saw the quiet slendour Of a field of columbine I skied on crystal pathways To a mountain peak so tall And I walked the mighty summits With the one who made it all And I fell in love with a lady 'Cause I've seen her at her best And I've walked her wild and rugged paths Through her open wilderness And now I never can betray her Steal her riches and be gone 'Cause when you love a mountain lady You're gonna sing a mountain song Now people come from everywhere To see what they can find And some take lots of pictures And some just take their time But they're some who take her beauty That can't be bought or sold And they think of only money While destroying wealth untold But you fall in love with a lady When you've slept upon her breast And I've walked her wild and rugged paths To her open wilderness And you never can betray her Steal her riches and be gone 'Cause when you love a mountain lady You're gonna sing a mountain song Words and Music by Tracey Wickland

He Walked A Mile

Clay Crosse
Before the threads of time began Was pre-ordained a mighty plan That I should walk with Him alone The cords of trust unbroken But fate foresaw my wandering eye That none could yet restrain To violate the friendship I Would cause Him so much pain -Chorus- And every time I close my eyes I see the nails, I hear the cries He did not keep Himself away He was no stranger to my pain He walked a mile in my shoes He walked a mile Feet so dusty cracked with heat But carried on by love's heartbeat A man of sorrows filled with grief Forgiveness was His anthem No feeble blow from tongue or pen Could ever sway my love for him Across the echoed hills He trod And reached into my world

Joy You Bring

SHAGGY "Hotshot"
Chorus For every day and every moment (Wah, Wah) For every smile and every dream (Every smile and dream) I'll paint you a rainbow (Uh, a big rainbow) For all the joy you bring (All the joy you bring) I'll buy you a mountain (A nice mountain girl) And I'll buy you a stream (Wah, uh) - Ante Says 'cry' instead of 'buy' I'll give you a river (say wah, say wah) To show what you mean to me (Uh, uh) SHAGGY I don't wanna sound cheesy But I realize that lovin' you is very easy Playin' in the summer sun warm and breezy Never talkin' sleezy oh but I love it when you give me that look ooh you lookin' so teasy - Ante says 'Not at all sleezy...' Woman you are the fire in my life and it's pleasing (??) - Ante says 'freezing' instead of 'pleasing' Living like the Jefferson's George and Weezy If I am queasy, girl you're always on my mind in the darkest of times when I'm needy Can't get enough of you woman I'm greedy Sinking in the ocean of your love and I'm heeding Y'am conceding - Ante says 'I am conceding' And I wanna show you what you mean to me Chorus SHAGGY You know you have a shoulder for sighin' on, crying on - Ante says '...shoulder you can sigh on...' When you need your love you know it's SHAGGY ya' relyin' on - Ante says 'you're relyin on' Under the wings of your love that you're flyin' on You mean the world to me Cause I been with many girls and I never saw the benefit Now I got the love I want and by any means I'm keepin' it Bonafide love and I'm fallin' very deep in it I want the world to see Chorus (Now here instead of 'nice mountain' he says 'lovely mountain' and the next time the chorus comes up as well.) SHAGGY You're the air that I breathe, you're all that I need Tell me baby can you feel me When this life takes a toll, you're my heart and soul Tell me baby can you, can you feel me (Repeat above) Chorus Here

The Song Is Alive

POINT OF GRACE "Steady On"
Can you hear the song moving on the wind Calling us home, drawing us in It's a wave of love that's melting all resistance Can you feel it, when it starts It's within the reach of our hearts It'll change the world around us if we listen It's the living, breathing message Of the mercy of our God (Chorus) The song is alive Stirring hope in the soul, don't you know It's the heartbeat of life Moving us with a love That's never ever ever gonna die The song is alive It's pushing down walls, driving out doubt No power on earth's gonna drown it out And in the middle of the night His voice will lead us And the music plays on When we start to sing the song No nothing's gonna stop the faithful love of Jesus It's the living, breathing message Of the mercy of our God (Repeat Chorus) Welling up in us, a love beyond compare Spilling from the lips fo the believers everywhere Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know The song is alive Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know (Repeat Chorus) It's pushing down walls, it's driving out doubt Don't you know

Dear Mama

2PAC "Me Against The World"
You are appreciated [Verse One: 2Pac] When I was young me and my mama had beef Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool with the big boys, breakin all the rules I shed tears with my baby sister Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama When things went wrong we'd blame mama I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell Huggin on my mama from a jail cell And who'd think in elementary Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day And runnin from the police, that's right Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside And even as a crack fiend, mama You always was a black queen, mama I finally understand for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man You always was committed A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it There's no way I can pay you back But the plan is to show you that I understand You are appreciated [Chorus: Reggie Green & 'Sweet Franklin' w/ 2Pac] Lady... Don't cha know we love ya Sweet lady Dear mama Place no one above ya, sweet lady You are appreciated Don't cha know we love ya [second and third chorus, 'And dear mama' instead of 'Dear mama'] [Verse Two: 2Pac] Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger wouldn't let me feel for a stranger They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along I was lookin for a father he was gone I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs They showed a young brother love I moved out and started really hangin I needed money of my own so I started slangin I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks It feels good puttin money in your mailbox I love payin rent when the rent's due I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you Cause when I was low you was there for me And never left me alone because you cared for me And I could see you comin home after work late You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate Ya just workin with the scraps you was given And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin But now the road got rough, you're alone You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own And there's no way I can pay you back But my plan is to show you that I understand You are appreciated [Chorus] [Verse Three: 2Pac] Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama I can always depend on my mama And when it seems that I'm hopeless You say the words that can get me back in focus When I was sick as a little kid To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did And all my childhood memories Are full of all the sweet things you did for me And even though I act craaazy I gotta thank the Lord that you made me There are no words that can express how I feel You never kept a secret, always stayed real And I appreciate, how you raised me And all the extra love that you gave me I wish I could take the pain away If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day Everything will be alright if ya hold on It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on And there's no way I can pay you back But my plan is to show you that I understand You are appreciated [Chorus] Sweet lady And dear mama Dear mama Lady [3X]
