JOHN DENVER lyrics - Live At The Sydney Opera House

Moreton Bay

Original and similar lyrics
One Sunday morning as I was walking By Brisbane Waters I chanced to stray I heard a convict his fate bewailing As on the sunny riverbank he lay I am a native of Erin, Ireland But banished now from my native shore They stole me from my independence And from the maiden whom I do adore I've been a prisoner at Port Macquarie At Norfolk Island and Emu Plains At Castle Hill and cursed Toongabbie At all these settlements I've been in chains But of all places of condemnation And penal stations in New South Wales To Moreton Bay I have found no equal Excessive tyranny each day prevails For three long years I was beastly treated And heavy irons on my legs I wore My back from flogging was lacerated And oft times covered with my crimson gore And many a man from downright starvation Lies mouldering now beneath the clay And Captain Logan he had us mangled On the triangles of Moreton Bay Like the Egyptians and ancient Hebrews We were oppressed under Logan's yoke Till a native black lying there in ambush Did deal our tyrant with his mortal stroke My fellow prisoners be exhilarated That all such monsters like death shall find And when from bondage we're extricated Our former suffering shall will fade from mind One Sunday morning as I was walking By Brisbane Waters I chanced to stray I heard a convict his fate bewailing As on the sunny riverbank he lay

Waters Of March

ANYA MARINA "Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II"
É pau, é pedra, é o fim do caminho É um resto de toco, é um pouco sozinho A stick, a stone, It's the end of the road, It's feeling alone It's the weight of your load It's a sliver of glass It's light, it's the sun It's night, it's death It's a knife, it's a gun A flower that blooms A fox in the brush A knot in the wood The song of a thrush The mystery of life The steps down the hall The sound of the wind And the waterfall It's the moon floating free The curve of the slope It's an ant, it's a bee It's a reason for hope And the riverbank sings Of the waters of March It's the promise of Spring It's the joy in your heart É o pé, é o chão, é a marcha estradeira Passarinho na mão, pedra de atiradeira É uma ave no céu, é uma ave no chão É um regato, é uma fonte, é um pedaço de pão É o fundo do poço, é o fim do caminho No rosto o desgosto, é um pouco sozinho A spear, a spike, A stake, a nail It's a drip, it's a drop It's the end of the tale The dew on a leaf In the morning light The shot of a gun In the dead of night A mile, a must A thrust, a bump It's the will to survive It's a jolt, it's a jump The prim of a house A body in bed A car stuck in the mud It's the mud, it's the mud A fish, a flash A wish, a wing It's a hawk, it's a dove It's the promise of Spring And the riverbank sings Of the waters of March It's the end of despair It's the joy in your heart É uma cobra, é um pau, é João, é José É um espinho na mão, é um corte no pé São as águas de março fechando o verão É a promessa de vida no teu coração A stick, a stone It's the end of the road The stump of a tree It's a frog, it's a toad A sigh, a breath A walkaround A life or death A ray in the sun And the riverbank sings Of the waters of March It's the promise of life It's the joy in your heart

The Stolen Bride

Angelo Branduardi
Bemerkung: habe alle texte vom inneren der entsprechenden LP-hülle abgeschrieben! dabei habe ich ~2,3 eindeutige druckfehler berichtigt. ANGELO BRANDUARDI fables and fantasies The Stolen Bride Three long nights and sleep eludes me Wait and watch and listen But all I hear is the viper sliding And hissing along the river There I wrote this song I sing now Darkly dressed with sorrow About the bride who left her wedding Slipped out...none saw none followed. No one saw the extra guest Beguile her to the threshold With smiles and pretty words about the beauty of her dress And persuade her from the feasting So naive she followed him She thought but for a moment We waited her return till the candles burnt away We searched...but none could find her A fiddler present at the wedding Was walking out next morning When the strange guest appeared before him Good day musician said he I know you search for one who's missing Vanished from her wedding If you have a brave heart walk behind me And I will lead you to her A boat as black as fishes bowels He rode 'cross shrowded waters Untill they came upon the waxen bride In a dress of gold and silver She bade the fiddler take her ring Back safe to her beloved And said here I remain and suffer not the world No pain desire or hatred The fiddler took the ring and turning Had hardly walked but one step When he heard a stiffled cry Forgive me As the misty waters took her Shining bright as summer light The morning that she married What unholy place was she taken to that day And by what cold of darkness.

September 12th

David Wilcox
Long ago they built this fort of stone above the Hudson To guard against intruders, there were cannons in these walls But now it's just a park where we can come and bring the children On a clear sunny morning in the fall The reason for this fortress was the threat of foreign warships And though these walls were ready, no gunboats reached our shores But you kids can climb the tower and look out across the harbor And imagine being lookouts for the enemy at war But you never see it coming anymore Now we're on the frontlines like stepping over landmines Not beneath our footsteps but never far away And now the possibility, the presence of the enemy It could be any city, maybe any peaceful day It's a clear sunny morning, but it's nothing like before Cause you never see it coming anymore It's a different kind of peace, cause it's a different kind of war And you never see it coming anymore These kids have learned some history and they know what warfare used to be Tanks and guns and soldiers that moved across the land With strategies and battlelines converging at a place in time And lives were lost for reasons that the world could understand On the History Channel war can look exactly like before When you were certain it was over by the ticker tape parade They could come back home to safety, they could celebrate the victory And the landmines were all buried 'cross the ocean far away But a different kind of war has reached our shore And you never see it coming anymore Now we're on the frontlines like stepping over landmines Not beneath this pavement but never far away And now the possibility, the presence of the enemy It could be any city, maybe any peaceful day It's a clear sunny morning, but it's nothing like before Cause you never see it coming anymore It's a different kind of peace, cause it's a different kind of war And you never see it coming anymore

Maroon 5 Medley

VICTORIA JUSTICE
Shoot for the stars if it feels right Then aim for my heart If you feel like it take me away make it okay Yeah you really make me wonder 'bout you Oh baby it's hard when it feels like you're broken and scarred nothing feels right But when you're with me I'll make you believe Girl you really make me wonder 'bout you I wasted my nights you turned out the lights now I'm paralyzed Still stuck in that time when we called it love But even the sun sets in paradise I don't mind spending everyday (Sunday morning rain is falling) out on your corner in the pouring rain (Steal some cover, share some skin) Look for the girl with the broken smile (Sunday morning rain is falling) ask her if she wants to stay awhile And she will be loved [X3] and I wont go home without you I know its hard to remember the people we used to be But I am in misery You say it's too late to make it but is it too late to try Why won't you answer me Baby you are all I need in darkness you are all I see come and rest your bones with me driving slow on Sunday morning And it goes like... This love has taken its toll on me She said goodbye too many times before Now take me by the tongue and I'll show you all the moves like Jagger I got them moves like Jagger My heart is breaking in front of me I have no choice yeah I won't say goodbye anymore Look into my eyes and I'll own you With them moves like Jagger I got them moves like Jagger Now I'm at a payphone (I don't mind spending everyday) All of my change I spent on you (Out on your corner in the pouring rain) Where have the times gone (Look for the girl with the broken smile) Where are the plans we made for two (Ask her if she wants to stay awhile) And she will be loved [X6]

City Of New Orleans

ARLO GUTHRIE "Hobo's Lullaby"
Riding on the City of New Orleans Illinois Central, Monday morning rail 15 cars and 15 restless riders 3 conductors, 25 sacks of mail All along the southbound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kankakee And rolls along past houses farms and fields Passing trains that have no name, and freight yards full of old black men And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles Good morning America, how are you Said don't you know me, I'm your native son I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done Dealing card games, with the old men in the club car Penny a point ain't no one keeping score Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle Feel the wheels, rumblin' 'neath the floor And the sons of Pullman porters, and the sons of engineers Ride their fathers' magic carpets, made of steel And mothers with their babes asleep, are rockin' to the gentle beat And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel Good morning America, how are you Said don't you know me, I'm your native son I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done Nighttime on the City of New Orleans Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee Halfway home, we'll be there by morning Through the Mississippi darkness, rolling down to the sea But all the towns and people seem, to fade into a bad dream And the steel rail still ain't heard the news The conductor sings his songs again, the passengers will please refrain This train got the disappearing railroad blues Good night America, how are you Said don't you know me, I'm your native son I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done
