JOHN DENVER lyrics - John Denver

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Original and similar lyrics
(Robertson) Virgil Caine is the name, I served on the Danville train. The stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again. In the summer of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive. By May the 10th Richmond had fell, was a time I remember oh, so well. The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing. The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing. They went la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la. Back home in Tennessee my wife called out to me. Said Virgil, come quick and see, there goes Robert E. Lee. I don't mind chopping wood, and I don't care if the money ain't good. You take what you need and save the rest, but they should never have taken the very best. The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing. The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing. They went la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la. Like my father before me, he was a working man. Like my brother above me, he took a rebel stand. Was just 18, proud and brave when a Yankee laid him in his grave. I swear by the blood beneath my feet, you can't raise a Cain back up when he's in defeat. The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing. The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing. They went la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la. The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing. The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing. They went la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la.

Albatross

Judy Collins "Wildflowers"
The lady comes to the gate dressed in lavender and leather Looking North to the sea she finds the weather fine She hears the steeple bells ringing through the orchard All the way from town She watches seagulls fly Silver on the ocean stitching through the waves The edges of the sky Many people wander up the hills From all around you Making up your memories and thinking they have found you They cover you with veils of wonder as if you were a bride Young men holding violets are curious to know if you have cried And tell you why And ask you why Any way you answer Lace around the collars of the blouses of the ladies Flowers from a Spanish friend of the family The embroid'ry of your life holds you in And keeps you out but you survive Imprisoned in your bones Behind the isinglass windows of your eyes And in the night the iron wheels rolling through the rain Down the hills through the long grass to the sea And in the dark the hard bells ringing with pain Come away alone Even now by the gate with your long hair blowing And the colors of the day that lie along your arms You must barter your life to make sure you are living And the crowd that has come You give them the colors And the bells and wind and the dream Will there never be a prince who rides along the sea and the mountains Scattering the sand and foam into amethyst fountains Riding up the hills from the beach in the long summer grass Holding the sun in his hands and shattering the isinglass? Day and night and day again and people come and go away forever While the shining summer sea dances in the glass of your mirror While you search the waves for love and your visions for a sign The knot of tears around your throat is crystallizing into your design And in the night the iron wheels rolling through the rain Down the hills through the long grass to the sea And in the dark the hard bells ringing with pain Come away alone Come away alone...with me.

Fairytale Of New York

Kirsty MacColl "Galore"
It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank An old man said to me, won't see another one And then he sang a song The Rare Old Mountain Dew I turned my face away And dreamed about you Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one I've got a feeling This year's for me and you So happy Christmas I love you baby I can see a better time When all our dreams come true They've got cars big as bars They've got rivers of gold But the wind goes right through you It's no place for the old When you first took my hand On a cold Christmas Eve You promised me Broadway was waiting for me You were handsome You were pretty Queen of New York City When the band finished playing They howled out for more Sinatra was swinging, All the drunks they were singing We kissed on a corner Then danced through the night The boys of the NYPD choir Were singing Galway Bay And the bells were ringing out For Christmas day You're a bum You're a punk You're an old slut on junk Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed You scumbag, you maggot You cheap lousy faggot Happy Christmas your arse I pray God it's our last The boys of the NYPD choir Still singing Galway Bay And the bells were ringing out For Christmas day I could have been someone Well so could anyone You took my dreams from me When I first found you I kept them with me babe I put them with my own Can't make it all alone I've built my dreams around you The boys of the NYPD choir Still singing Galway Bay And the bells are ringing out For Christmas day
