JOHN DENVER lyrics - Higher Ground

A Country Girl In Paris

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on four albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground Album, and has also been released on the A Portrait, The Gift You Are and The John Denver Collection - Annie's Song Albums. A country girl in Paris, moonlight on the Seine Memories of Tennessee, Nashville in the rain It's such a contradiction, a heart that's filled with pain A country girl in Paris, dreamin' Nashville in the rain She walks along the boulevard, Champs Alysee Thinks about a country boy three thousand miles away Pride is such a hard thing, it's such a price to pay To be all alone in Paris with true love so far away Up upon Mont Martre when she stops to rest awhile All the artists look at her and they long to paint her smile For even in her sorrow there's something in her eyes That makes the young men jealous, makes the old men sigh They say the loss of innocence is always linked to pain For once the heart is opened nothing ever is the same And so the evening lends itself to lovers and romance The way to heal a broken heart is to give true love One more chance A country girl in Paris, moonlight on the Seine Memories of Tennessee, Nashville in the rain It's such a contradiction, a heart that's filled with pain A country girl in Paris, dreamin' Nashville in the rain A country girl in Paris, longing for Nashville in the rain Words and music by John Denver

Littlefield

WAYLON JENNINGS "A Man Called Hoss"
I was born in '37, a sharecropper's son Out on the great south plains There in the suburbs of a dryland cotton patch In the middle of a west Texas rain And for all of you folks out there in radioland who don't know what a West Texas rain is, Well that's what's commonly known as a sandstorm Remember that, you'll need it later I guess times were hard but livin' was easy We always found a way to survive Fried chicken and gravy and an old tune off the guitar Was enough to keep a country boy alive And on Saturday afternoons it was Lester Pruitt's "The Picture Show" On Saturday's nights is the Grand Ol' Uproar from Nashville Tennessee, take it away boys Lookin' back now and thinkin' it over Life was like an old country song My mama taught me the melody and daddy taught me the chords I made the words up on my own And sometimes it didn't rhyme, but they always had a reason, Even if it was unbeknownst to no one but myself I guess all that west Texas sand in my crawl, that's what make me so mean I'd bet I was the only boy ever expelled from Sunday school Lover, fighter, wild-horse rider, and purty dern good windmill maker Look out world, here I come

Rock My World (Little Country Girl)

BROOKS & DUNN "Hard Workin' Man"
She's got a T-Top Camaro with a scoop on the hood And two big speakers blasting Johnny B. Goode Looking so sweet it oughta be a crime She plays with my heart and messes with my mind Acts like Madonna but she listens to Merle Rock my world little Country girl She wears snakeskin boots made by Calvin Klein And cheap sunglasses from the five and dime All the other girls in school they give her dirty looks She got an 'A' in math and never cracked a book Sure looks good in her denim and pearls Rock my world little Country girl Chorus: Rock my world Drag me out on the floor Dance with me till I can't dance anymore One-step, two-step, get in a line I gotta find a way to make you mine I tell her that I love her but it ain't enough She says I got to learn to loosen up Get a little wild on Saturday night But make sure she's home before the mornin' light Sunday she's all ribbons and curls Rock my world little Country girl (Repeat chorus) Rock my world little Country girl

Hard Rain Don't Last

DARRYL WORLEY "Hard Rain Don't Last"
Hard Rain Don't Last (Darryl Worley/Rob Crosby) Girl tonight it's pouring down on us It's been building for so long Yeah, it's dark I know but don't let go And don't say our love is gone Chorus: If we hold on till the morning I know this storm is bound to pass That ol' sun is gonna shine again tomorrow Hard rain don't last Girl we tore it up, made a mess of it Left the pieces on the floor But if we forgive and get through this We'll be stronger than before Chorus Everything's gonna seem brighter when the sky clears We'll still be loving each other after these tears Chorus

Happy Mess

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Spring #12"
[Verse 1] Remember that time that I made you so mad Last week right ha ha you know that It's not like it's all that rare So put it here and let me cherish the embarrassment I realize I've been a dick head yes And I respect how you question your investments I take the plane but it ain't to be impressive It feels like a cop out to label it lessons I've been though the rain but I've put other people through a hurricane just to work the game Some time I swim through so much shame I think my little man's blessed that he didn't get my last name And here you are right in front of me offering it all like tell me what you want from me I wanna love you today and forever Let me clear my through and rub my wings together [Chorus X2] It goes: I'm not perfect but I'm this that and this My hands are dirty and I'm this that and this You've been searching for this that and this Let's break the surface and make a little happy mess [Verse 2] Whoo girl, you're the most beautiful thing I've seen Enticing, exciting Even the sound of your voice gotta nice ring Ya seem like the type that might help me tighten up my pipe dreams We can keep digging through this dirt Team up, you and I against the universe Think about it, What cha say to yourself You can wear my cape and I can play with your belt The truth is there now Stand with me, look into that mirror now And tell me you don't see the same image Gonna be a brand name babe once the rain is finished [Chorus X2] [Verse 3] I can't believe she got me on a ball and chain It's not a complaint, I appreciate it For all the dumb mistakes I make I'm surprised baby girl ain't threw me away I never meant to hurt no one I just want to stay productive till the work is done I dance to a sertain drum but when I fell off beat you didn't turn and run, no You see me at my lowest moments You gave me sight when I had broken focus With a smile that opens up like a rose does Even when it all seemed so fucking hopeless And here you are, right in front of me Offering it all like 'tell me what you want from me' I want to thank you today and forever Let's make a little happy mess together You know [Chorus X2]
