JOHN DENVER lyrics - John Denver

Sweet Melinda

Original and similar lyrics
Pulled out of Denton, Texas two days and nights ago, I been living on pills and burgies, the whites of my eyes don't show. The south bound headlights are making me blind, I'm too damn tired to blink. My toes are numb and my brain's gone dumb, I can just barely think. Lo de looou, sweet Melinda, my wife. The lonesome moan of this eighteen-wheeler cuts through me like a knife. Except for you, sweet Melinda, my wife, I been riding on empty most all of my life. Two more hours till daylight, starting to rain again. A sign up ahead says welcome to Paradise, Population Ten. Me and this truck and that old white line stumbling on and on, Like three old drinking buddies coming home at dawn. Singing ooooo, sweet Melinda, my wife. The lonesome moan of this eighteen-wheeler cuts through me like a knife. Except for you, sweet Melinda, my wife, I been riding on empty most all of my life. Except for you, sweet Melinda, my wife. The lonesome moan of this eighteen-wheeler cuts through me like a knife. Except for you, sweet Melinda, my wife, I been riding on empty most all of my life. I been riding on empty most all of my life

Sometime Somewhere Wife

HARRY CHAPIN "Heads Tales"
It was a very cold September, Colder than I'd ever care to make it. I had a kind of empty feeling, But no place to go where I could take it. So I took a walk beside the railroad tracks, and I thought about the facts of my life And of my sometime, somewhere wife. At times like this I lose my head and think of her. Empty space always ask for filling. I wonder whyI never stopped to marry her. It wasn't 'cause she was not more than willing. Walking puts a window to my mind, And brings thoughts about this kind of a life, without my sometime somewhere wife. I guess I walked about a mile and maybe some, And I come upon a rusty railroad crossing. And suddenly I knew that time had come again, The winter wind had set the trees to tossing. So I returned to where I'd left my stuff, yes, I knew I'd had enough of my life without my sometime, somewhere wife. I've got to find her. I've got to find her. I've got to find her. I've got to find her. I've got to find my lady, got let her know. I don't know why I let my lady go. I've got to find her. I've got to find her.

Because of my Mom, I've experienced parts of life My nigga could not relate to, but whose to shay that it's for better Couldn't afford to buy me leather, but my body stayed warm Couldn't afford to buy me diamonds, but I still had charm She could afford to give me knowledge, and teach to speak truth She taught me black lies were white reali-tie Forever and a day gee, I will bleed for my family F-O-S brothers and the one sweet Marie [CHORUS]

Life's So Strange

INDIGO GIRLS "Indigo Girls"
Cold black coffee, incessant stream of cars Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fist full of grey stars Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground Today the rain's just water it won't stop from falling down I grow weary waiting for my muse But in between the time she comes I still have to tie my shoes And get on with my day There are mornings when I'm with Icarus And there are days I have to take the bus Life's so rich Life's so empty Secret rendezvous long distance from a phone booth Like two players in a mystery straight out of our youth Well I'm finding that dramatics have lost their old appeal I play the part of stoic lover but I'm not sure how I feel I get discouraged waiting for the world To understand this love affair To understand the girl There are moments when Amelia's right beside me Next thing I know I taste the salt of the sea Life's so rich Life's so empty Cold black coffee, incessant stream of cars Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fist full of grey stars Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground Today the rain's just water it won't stop from falling down I grow weary, I'm waiting for the world To understand this love affair To understand the girl There are moments when Amelia's right beside me Next thing I know I taste the salt of the sea Life's so rich Life's so empty Life's so strange Oh oh

Jeevin' (Life)

KARDINAL OFFISHALL "Eye & I"
[INTRO: Kardinal Offishall] Life [x3] It's life y'all, life Word up, life Uh, can you feel it? Life Life, we bring you in the light like this [CHORUS: Jully Black] Life is so sweet, thank the Lord for my days Oh, I'm living for today, life might be here went away Life is so sweet, thank the Lord for my days Oh, I'm living for today, life might be here went away [Kardinal Offishall] Lordy lordy, you took another body But he didn't cause trouble, didn't bother nobody He was, just a man trying to rock the mic But a bullet took his life, aw man Now my breadren eternally is wearing a dress suit with a shiny shoe Far stretched from a Gortex don't you think? I did, now all my man sees is eyelids Dreams turned into seven, prayers closer to Heaven Left his baby mother two weeks overdue Now the two join him, so what side it's truth Manifiested, because the bless-ed seem to go first Experience afterlife, the first light since birth Since we live amoung demons also known as Government Gangsters… and hookers made to walk the cement But I (I), Kardinal know the true flow I have no enemies, but every nigga is a foe And that's life [CHORUS] [Kardinal Offishall] Yo, life is what you do, choices between your crew or your girl I say f- the both of them and struggle solo Or so I tend to seek a bend in the road of life, mode of trifeness As brothers I was running with, dead and walking lifeless See the niceness is what you should be seeking When you... on the streets and the madness is peaking And you... should sit back and recollect Whether your self worth is in your hard work or a piece of leather More niggas worship idle Gods and call themselves what they pray to I sit back and meditate to clear my mind off all external pressure Sometimes pleasure of the body makes my mental feel lesser Guilt's a bitch when living for now instead of for the scripture But your afterlife will catch up with your Mister or misses kisses When I get you in my will and test the money, I find it funny Since I'm broke in the soul, my spirit's searching for longevity Ducking from stray shots is taking the best of me But I will maintain, success has a stain upon my brain What you make will remain, and that's life [CHORUS] [Jully Black] Life's so sweet You gotta thank the Lord for life You gotta thank the Lord for life [Kardinal Offishall] I want to be there to see the eyes of my baby girl Born into the world of chaos, money, AIDS and violence Silence breaks my concentration in my private world Organize, organize so I can flex with my boys Inside the lance will corrupt, trying to stick you for nothing Greed, sloth and five others are fillling up my brohters Word up Enemy is becoming a part of me and I'm all shooting glocks is making the block hot Spots rock, ‘cause niggas realize in between their finger Thinking buring completes the circle of being a rap singer The slogan used to be Just Say No, but now just say yo! And you as high as the sky go Imagine my mother said turn the other cheek But nowadays that will get you sprayed on your back you'll lay If I can't trust you, then unity never will exist It's the gritty quoted, yes it's just the life in the city Word life [CHORUS]
