All My Memories

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Aerie Album, and has also been released on The Country Roads Collection Album. All of my memories lay in the life of the highway All of my nights in old motels a sleepin' alone All of my days on the road with no one beside me All of my dreams of a place that I can call home Somewhere in the shade near the sound of a sweet singin' river Somewhere in the sun where the mountains make love to the sky Somewhere to build me a faith, a farm and a family Somewhere to grow older, and somewhere a reason to try ‘Cause I'm tired of big cities and so tired of big city ways Scrathin' off sunset, and walkin' around in the maze Some sweet taxi dancer tryin' to save me from bein' alone Ah it's much worse than lonely there is no place that I really belong I want to be home I'm leavin' this city life In my mind I'm flyin' away I'm leavin' tomorrow and all of the old yesterdays I'm leavin' the trash cans the bright lights of telephone lines I'm leavin' my sorrows of all of my memories behind I'll see what I find Somewhere in the shade near the sound of a sweet singin' river Somewhere in the sun where the mountains make love to the sky Somewhere to build me a faith, a farm, a family Somewhere to grow older, and somewhere a reason to try Somewhere to grow older, somewhere to laydown and die Words and music by John Denver

A Bushman Cant Survive

Tania Kernaghan
A city girl is happy with her friends and family life Appreciates a wine with him at night She tries to find the sparkle she searchs but it's gone With lots of love she hopes he'll be alright Her man has gone all quiet e's not at ease He doesn't feel at home hes hard to please He gets itchy feet he's tired of noises in the street He needs to walk for hours through the trees CHORUS No a bushman cant survive on city lights Opera rock and roll and height of heights His moon shines on the silver brigalow Shimmers down the inland river flow Out there where the yellow belly bite He's working with his hands today on a building site He can smell the cypress on the floor It takes him to a sandy ridge out amongst the pines No shearing no ploughing anymore His kelpie dog is tired and fast asleep Tired of searching gardens for the sheep His mater doesn't whistle tunes he's not in the mood His love for open spaces runs too deep CHORUS He tries to please his woman the lady of his life He's standing at a party with a plate She finds him on the balcony staring at the moon An old familiar face he can relate CHORUS His moon shines on the silver brigalow Shimmers down the inand river Out there where the yelloe belly bite

Kathleen

John McDermott "When I Grow Too Old To Dream"
Kathleen : To Pan and Terry Blown like a leaf on a warm summer breeze A vision approached me as cool as you please With her strawberry hair and a wink in her eye To say I was smitten would not be a lie Gathering courage I started to speak To ask of her name but my heart felt too weak Like I'd gone to heaven before I had died I mumbled the question she calmly replied 'Kathleen' Well I remember my first motorbike With her riding pillion I'd not heard the like Of her giggles and squeels as we leaned left and right And feeling her arms round my chest holding tight Whilrwind romances were never my speed But this one took off like a runaway steed When she said she was having the time of her life I knew then this vision would soon be my wife, Kathleen Oh Kathleen the memories you've left me They'll be with me through all of my days Thinking there's safety in numbers no doubt Acounts for the fact that the wholw town turned out To behold how serenely she walked down the aisle But trembled and blushed as I kissed her sweet smile Picnics on beaches and punts on the lake Luck seemed to serve us a slice of life's cake That was more than enought to sustain us through years When laughter would somehow give way to some tears Kathleen Oh Kathleen the memories you've left me They'll be with me through all of my days Then at the ball she looked ever so sweet Heavy with child but still light on her feet Every head turned our way as we whirled o'er the floor And I love her more than I'd loved her before (Instrumental) Two caring children Siobhan and Marie A grand little grandchild to bounce on my knee They're a fine testimonial to all that was right In keeping our candle of love burning bright, Kathleen Now as my life nears its own eventide It's almost as though she were here by my side Such a presence an aura so perfectly made My beautiful vision that never will fade Kathleen

ANDY MINEO
I've been doing this for so long.. like the only thing I know, feels like the only thing I know (I know, I know, I know) I never really thought what I did was so wrong.. but my eyes were closed, look at how I got to grow (to grow, to grow) There's things in my life, that I gotta undue, What I thought was so right, now I gotta untrue (true..), But we spoke everyday now we don't even speak at all (speak at all), Cause I brought you so much pain that you won't pick up my call, And it's so bittersweet, How the one that can love you so much and hurt you so deep, Light up your day to mess up your whole week, Lock your heart down and keep the key, it goes.. I-don't-want - for you to be my next episode, I-don't-want - just another love story told, I-just-want - you to be my sister, I see life so much different, Now that I know what you're worth... In my quest for them X and O's, in my quest-in my quest for them X and O's, Wasn't being intentional, Now I gotta big list of some ex's, oh.. Do I regret those? well yes and no, Through it all though I got to grow, But it came with a friendship broke, Was it really all worth it? I'm feeling all serpent, That Lecrae line did work when I heard it, 2 bars hit hard like a 2 part sermon, "like Christ, love your wife how He loves the church, Without seeing how many hearts you can break first", I was making relationships, A temporary fix to medicate my loneliness, Taking doses, of emotions, Via phone call, when we spoke and, I planted seeds I really couldn't see you, Couldn't feed myself so how could I feed you? Wasn't seeing God so clear how could I see you? I was just leading you on but didn't need you, Dang, look at the things we do, For our own pleasure we go and use people, You ain't even single no more but I wanna keep you, Look at how it exposed the heart of man is evil, And it's so bittersweet, How the one that can love you so much and hurt you so deep, Light up your day and mess up your whole week, Lock your heart down and keep the key, it goes.. I-don't-want - for you to be my next episode, I-don't-want - just another love story told, I-just-want - you to be my sister, I see life so much different, Now that I know what you're worth... Now that I know what you're worth yea... Now that I know, I see life so much different, I see life so much different, Oooh, I see life so much different, Now that I've been forgiven... We/we/we spoke everyday now we don't even speak at all (speak at all [x4]), And it's so bittersweet
