Song Of Wyoming

Original and similar lyrics
(Lewis) I'm weary and tired, I've done my day's riding, nighttime is rolling my way. The sky's all on fire and light's slowly fading, peaceful and still ends the day. Out on the trail, night birds are calling, singing their wild melody. Down in the canyon, cottonwood whispers a song of Wyoming for me. Well I've wandered around the town and the city, tried to figure the how and the why. I stopped all my scheming, I'm just drifting and dreaming, watching the river roll by. Here comes that big old prairie moon rising, shining down bright as can be. Up on the hill there's a coyote singing a song of Wyoming for me. Now it's whiskey and tobacco and bitter black coffee, a lonesome old dogie am I. But waking up on the range, Lord, I feel like an angel, Feel like I almost could fly. Drift like a cloud out over the badlands, sing like a bird in the tree. The wind in the sage sounds like heaven singing a song of Wyoming for me. A song of Wyoming for me.

Arizona Indian Doll

FASTER PUSSYCAT
She's got high top moccasins And shines in the sun Does her rain dance for me And I'm wet when she's done Got to be the last of a long lost tribe I got my bow arrow now I'm ready to fly Ain't no bright lights shining Ain't no bad moon rising at all Ya got me rolling through the tumbleweed This wild child's all I need Well I got her And she's all mine There ain't nothing like A little midnight stroll And make a little love Where the buffalo roam I ain't no Geronimo But I had a good time I walk her to her tee pee And I kissed her goodnight Ain't no bright lights shining Ain't no bad moon rising at all Ya got me rolling through the tumbleweed This wild child's all I need Well I got her And she's all mine Arizona, Indian doll

Sad Rain

Anekdoten
the neon dawn has just begun, the day is here that wasn't meant to come she's walking by the frozen sea trying to count the stars that she can't see a distant sound of black rain in the water the pale moon shining soft through a cloud the sun is turning black in the horizon the wind is slowly tearing her apart and so our time has come, my friend the child who cries and no-one seems to care the echoes of the birds are gone the sky is painted grey, but it's so warm searching for a light in the darkness, trying to keep your eyes from the dirt taste the bitter wine of tomorrow i'm walking on a path that never ends

Tonight And Forever

CARLY SIMON "Spoiled Girl"
(Simon/Schwatrz) I've waited years For you tonight My faith in love has been my guiding light I heard you voice I read your heart I fell in love with you though we were miles apart tonight and forever Tonight and forever I am yours O sister make My wedding bed Tie a bunch of wild thorn branches At the head And scatter roses on the floor Three bright stars shining at our door Tonight and forever Tonight and forever Tonight and forever, I am yours And a song on the wind Rising from the sea A fire so cold A flame so new No, I could never ask for more than you The moon is high The tide is in Now the night is ours Let the dance begin Tonight and forever Tonight and forever, I am yours

The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men

Rickie Lee Jones "Pop Pop"
Sing a song of sad young man Glasses full of rye All the news is bad again so Kiss your dreams goodbye All the sad young men Sitting in the bars Knowing neon nights Missing all the stars All the sad young men Drifting through the town Drinking up the night Trying not to drown All the sad young men Singing in the cold Trying to forget That they're growing old All the sad young men Choking on their worth Trying to be brave Running from the truth Autumm turns the leaves to gold Slowly dies the heart Sad young men are growing old That's the cruelest part All the sad young men Seek a certain smile Someone they can hold for a little while Tired little girl does the best she can Trying to be gay for her sad young man While the grimy moon Watches from above All the sad young men Play of making love Misbegotten moon Shine for sad young men Let your gentle light Guide them home tonight All the sad young men

Pride Of Cucamonga

GRATEFUL DEAD "From The Mars Hotel"
Out on the edge of an empty highway, howling at the blood on the moon, Big diesel Mack truck rolling down my way, can't hit that border too soon. Running hard out of Muskrat Flats, it was sixty days or double life, Hail on my back like a shotgun blast, high wind chimes in the night. Oh, oh the Pride of Cucamonga, oh, oh bitter olives in the sun, Oh, oh I had me some lovin', and I done some time. Since I came down from Oregon, there's a lesson or two I've learned By standing in the road alone, standing watching the fires burn. The northern sky it stinks with greed, you can smell it for miles around, Good ole boys in the Greystone Hotel, sitting doing that git on down. Oh, oh the Pride of Cucamonga, of, of silver apples in the sun, I see your silver shining town, but I know I can't go there -- Your streets run deep with poisoned wine, your doorways crawl with fear. So I think I'll drift for ol' where it's at, where the weed grows green and fine And wrap myself around a bush of that bright, whoa, on Oaxaca vine. Yes, it's me, I'm the Pride of Cucamonga, I can see golden forests in the sun.
