Nothing But Sunshine

ATMOSPHERE "Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs"
[Slug] (Mixed vocals) Whatta you mean what was my childhood like? What difference does that make? Yo, my childhood was messed up, so what? Everybody's childhood was messed up. This is the 90's, find me one person who had it right. What's that got to do with me rhyming? What's left? [Slug] Now when my mother died I had to take it in stride There ain't no room for pride in watching your father cry And dad made it until maybe a year later When they found his suicide inside of a grain elevator Got over it, I had no other offers or options Thought about whether or not mom and pop was watching Never bothered with caution, no time for fear Saw my folks carry fear for most my early years And I learned from it, turned numb and ignored the storm A burning sun waiting for the world to plummet Finished growing up under my uncle's roof He taught me how to count all the way up to 100 proof From watching him I learned how to gather nourishment Living off the different women that he had to nurture him And on the surface I became a normal pre-teen More afraid of nuclear war than snake bites and bee stings My best friend was my TV Game shows and cartoons substituted for puppies, rainbows, and balloons Now here I am, the shy type, and I think I'm doing alright Considering what it was like living my life Chorus (repeated) It's nothing but sunshine It's all sunshine It's nothing but sunshine [Slug] Now it's been 17 summers since I've seen my mother But every night I see her smile inside my dreams When I was younger I didn't actually see the accident happen But every night I see her smile as it shatters against the screams I can only imagine Dad's internal reaction Strain, inferno burning, bound in his brain What's it take to make a man who owns acres of land Abandon the family plan and drown himself in his grains I'm glad I left that farm in Northern Minnesota Where the time moves slower and the winters are colder Became a city boy, where everybody acts like they older Where they stick to themselves and keep a chip on they shoulder 26 years of age, no longer full of rage I think it's safe to say I've turned a page on my childhood days Ay yo look Ma, I'm a productive member of society When I'm drunk I make noise, but otherwise I live quietly And on the weekend I go back up north to reminisce Remember what it was like pretending to be a kid Late at night I walked the fields and lurk in the shadows Getting even with life by murdering cattle Cow Skit Chorus (repeated) It's all sunshine It's nothing but sunshine It's all sunshine (And I'm gonna be alright, and you gonna be alright, You ain't gotta hold my hand, just walk with me tonight) Fade out (What it is, it ain't, and what it ain't it is, is a theme of a Virgo)

John Deere Green

JOE DIFFIE "Honky Tonk Attitude"
They were farm kids way down in Dixie Met in high school in the sixties Everyone knew it was love from the start One July in the midnight hour He climbed upon the water tower Stood on the rail and painted a 10ft heart In John Deere Green On a hot summer night He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene In letters 3ft high And the whole town said that he should have used red But it looked good to Charlene In John Deere Green They settled down on 80 acres Raising sweet corn, kids, and tomatos They went together like a hand and a glove On a clear day from their front yard If you look and know what to look for Off to the east you can still read his words of love In John Deere Green On a hot summer night He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene In letters 3 ft high And the whole town said the boy should have used red But it looked good to Charlene In John Deere Green Now more than once The town has discovered painting over it ain't no use There ain't no paint in the world That'll cover it, the heart keeps showing through In John Deere Green On a hot summer night He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene In letters 3ft high And the whole town said the fool should have used red But it looked good to Charlene In John Deere Green Ahh paint it green boy In John Deere Green On a hot summer night He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene In letters 3ft high And the whole town said the boy should have used red But it looked good to Charlene In John Deere Green John Deere Green

JAMES TAYLOR "James Taylor"
Sounds of laughter, here comes sunshine, smiling faces all around. They possess you, bless you, sunshine, now you can never let them down, I say sunshine. Sunshine, sunshine, is that a cloud across your smile or did you dream again last night? It's best you rest inside a while as blue doesn't seem to suit you right. Things ain't what they used to be, pain and rain and misery. Illness in the family and sunshine means a lot to me, I say sunshine. But could it be Sunshine is drifting with midnight and lonely when everyone's gone? Blue crystal spirits and gardens in moonlight leave weak alone and bleak all quiet and grey by dawn. Sunshine, sunshine rising to late to chase the cold and failing to change the frost to dew. She's trading her mood of yellow gold for frost bitten shades of silver-blue. Friends and lovers past and gone and no one waiting further on, I'm running short of things to be and sunshine means quiet a lot to me, I say sunshine. Sunshine, sunshine...
