JOHN DENVER lyrics - Back Home Again

Matthew

Original and similar lyrics
I had an uncle, name of Matthew, he was his father's only boy. Born just south of Colby, Kansas, he was his mother's pride and joy. Yes, and joy was just a thing that he was raised on, love was just a way to live and die. Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field, blue was just the Kansas summer sky. And all the stories that he told me back when I was just a lad. All the memories that he gave me, all the good times that he had. Growing up a Kansas farm boy, life was mostly having fun. Riding on his daddy's shoulders behind the mule, beneath the sun. Yes, and joy was just a thing that he was raised on, love was just a way to live and die. Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field, blue was just the Kansas summer sky. Well, I guess there were some hard times, and I'm told some years were lean. They had a storm in '47, twister came and stripped 'em clean. He lost the farm, he lost his family, he lost the wheat, he lost his home. But he found the family bible, his faith as solid as a stone. Yes, and joy was just a thing that he was raised on, love was just a way to live and die. Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field, blue was just the Kansas summer sky. So he came to live at our house, and he came to work the land. He came to ease my daddy's burden, and he came to be my friend. So I wrote this down for Matthew, and it's for him this song is sung. Riding on his daddy's shoulders, behind the mule, beneath the sun Yes, and joy was just a thing that he was raised on, love was just a way to live and die. Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field, blue was just the Kansas summer sky. Yes, and joy was just a thing that he was raised on, love was just a way to live and die. Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field, blue was just the Kansas summer sky.

Can't Knock The Hustle (Remix)

JAY-Z "The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse"
[Intro:] (Singing) Whoooh, Paradise you better think twice, 'cause you're not living the life [Jay-Z:] Jay-Z, Roc-A-Fella y'all, it don't stop [Verse One: ] We about to change this game here Check my pockets there's nothing but game there I remain without fear Keep the lanes clear, and the cats that's all about threats remain here On top of this Metropolis My name is like a square Dropped off every tier Now y'all can swear to Jay Heard it the other day Through the mystery, we get it swiftly We got to hit you every night before we hit the lights it's type addictive Need cats to live with, the heat goes on Everyday is a hustle, the beat goes on Funny thing happen, in the midst of chasing money and foes And the worst thing worst then getting old is not getting old Niggaz stay low, like six bowls of shit and gold And watch the hoes when they bump into your clothes And I hope they shine Seen a lot of things and enough memories to last me two lifetimes Can't knock the hustle [Chorus #1: (Singing) ] I'm taking out this time To give you a piece of my mind Who do you think you are Baby one day you'll be a star [Verse Two] Check this In a mans world need a girl to tough something Pull an 80 out her Anne Klein purse and bust something If you skating through the night to the light, then trust something When I get home Then it's on Girl just crack those shaped legs like Grade A eggs Love the way you behave and beg Moan, turn those hollers to screams as we zone like a college team Then they can hear you from Hollis, Queens (226) Life with me, consists of a lot of things Chips in your ear hit the dirt 'cause you got hotter things But you know how to scream, friends talking dizziness Remind them freak chicks to stay out my business You know they can't love it, trips to LA with no luggage Came back with six bags struggling In first class if my ass should crash, champagne spilled on me Bank still off on me [Chorus #2: (Singing)] But until the last day, I'm the one who's crazy 'Cause that's the way you making me feel (can't knock the hustle) I don't want no romance, I just want the chance Can't knock the hustle for real [Verse Three] Ever since you retired, working alongside those live wires Been in this rap biz with fake nigs you know liars I guess I'm biased, what I talk about I live These rap dudes can flip, but some of them ain't even rhyming for chips WHAT PART OF THE GAME IS THIS Seems brainless, on tours with whores that's what I'm saying I miss Cats that go all out for their gold plaques Starting out with four jacks, ended up with Gold Ac's Bet your love collapses if my funds get trapped On the weight of me through you, screw you Gun blew you, I didn't want to choose you Run through you like UH, EXCUSE YOU! But that's my cash, I understand you hustle That's my cash, you don't understand Let my dough flash, you can show it love Like a rap star in front of the club But don't knock the hustle [Chorus 1 & 2 to fade]

Until You Got Love

JON MCLAUGHLIN "Indiana"
Fourth floor, lonely Juanita, sits there staring at the screen, types in can anybody tell me what it all means, tick-tock waitin' for an answer it's no use and all at once to her suprise, she gets one reply, [Chorus] Until you got love, you know you got nothin', you're missing that something that's gonna set you free, until you got love, you'll always be running, love is that one thing that everybody needs, Sunday, no one's at the office, just waiting at his fathers desk, workin' trying to fill the shoes that his dad left 'dear son' he finds in a letter: 'please try your best to learn from my mistakes, you know work can wait', [Chorus] Until you got love, you know you got nothin', your missin that something that's gonna set you free, until you got love, you'll always be running, love is that one thing that everybody needs, There's nothing cool in this room, nothing new in what I'm saying, but sometimes the truth is what it is, so why should I apologize for looking for a better way to live, way to live [Chorus (x2)]

Royals

JASMINE THOMPSON "Another Bundle Of Tantrums"
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies And I'm not proud of my address, In a torn-up town, no postcode envy But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room, We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams. Everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash. We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair. And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz. Let me be your ruler, You can call me queen Bee Baby I'll rule Let me live that fantasy. My friends and I we've cracked the code. We count our dollars on the train to the party. And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this, We didn't come for money. But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom. Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room, We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams. Everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz. Let me be your ruler, You can call me queen Bee Baby I'll rule Let me live that fantasy. Ooh ooh oh Everything we ever dreamed, And I'm in love with being queen. Ooh ooh oh Life is great without a care We aren't caught up in your love affair. And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz Let me be your ruler, You can call me queen Bee Baby I'll rule Let me live that fantasy. Ooh ooh oh oh Let me live that fantasy.

Without Love (There Is Nothing)

TOM JONES "Tom"
To live for today and to love for tomorrow Is the wisdom of a fool Because tomorrow is promised to no one You see love is that wonderful thing that the whole wide world needs plenty of And if you think for one minute that you can live without it Then you are only fooling yourself Listen please I'd like to tell you something that happened to me just the other day I awakened this morning, I was filled with despair All my dreams turned to ashes and gone, oh yeah As I looked at my life it was barren and bare Without love I've had nothing at all Without love I've had nothing Without love I've had nothing at all I have conquered the world All but one thing did I have Without love I've had nothing at all Once I had a sweetheart who loved only me There was nothing, oh that she would not give, oh no But I was blind to her goodness and I could not see That a heart without love cannot live Without love I've had nothing Without love I've had nothing at all I have conquered the world All but one thing did I have Without love I've had nothing at all

Ring

GARY ALLAN "Tough All Over"
I remember the smile on her face When I put you on her finger I felt the love in her sweet embrace And all the happiness you brought her I still see it all in my mind The way she loved me All the time [chorus] Ring, ring You ain't nothin' but a thing Yesterday we used to hold her LIttel band of gold With a little blue stone I'm sure gonna miss the hand That you were on She'd wear you when we were together She'd wear you when I was gone 'Cause we believed in love forever But I guess we were wrong Now she's found somebody new She doesn't care about Me or you [repeat chorus] Wish I could put it all behind But I can't keep her off my mind Oh, oh What can I do? [repeat chorus] Little band of gold with a little blue stone Oh..
