JOHN DENVER lyrics - Voice Of America

Song For The Life

Original and similar lyrics
I don't drink as much as I used to Lately it just ain't my style And the hard times don't hurt like they ought to They pass quicker like when I's a child Somehow I've learned how to listen For a sound like the sun goin' down In the magic the morning is bringing There's a song for the life I have found It keeps my feet on the ground Don't the midsummer days sit so heavy But don't they flow like a breeze through your mind And nothin occurs in a hurry To make up for someone's lost time Somehow I've learned how to listen For a sound like the sun goin down In the magic the morning is bringing There's a song for a friend I have found She keeps my feet on the ground Somehow I've learned how to listen For a sound like the breeze dyin down In the magic the morning is bringing There's a song for the life Ihave found It keeps my feet on the ground

Solid Ground

JOHN ANDERSON "Solid Ground"
A good Christian raising a family foundation Mom and Dad who taught us right from wrong Even through the hard times we stayed close together that's the solid ground that made me strong But there were places that I had to go and things I had to find I was looking for the answers to the questions in my mind But all of the answers would be found on solid ground For a while I wandered aimlessly and couldn't see the way I had to find out on my own That the things that I was looking for were things I left behind Sometimes you never miss it till it's gone Then a beacon from a lighthouse led me safely to the shore And I didn't have to worry or be troubled anymore 'Cause I was finally coming back around On solid ground The truths I learned when I was young have stood the test of time All the rest have slowly washed away I try to teach my children the best way I know how And hope that they're on solid ground to stay And the lessons I was taught keep on ringing in my ears Simple words of wisdom I'll remember through the years Yes now my feet are planted sound On solid ground Yes now my feet are finally planted sound On solid ground.

Sky Diver

ATHLETE "Black Swan"
Elevate me now to the comfort of your touch I need my fix, need to take the edge off And it's hard to make a wish when The magic isn't there, the magic doesn't care It's hard to make a wish when Love's gone elsewhere Sky diver make it quick now Get it over with, get my feet back on the ground Is this our last ride, there's someelse to see Is this our last dance, I know I don't want it to be And it's hard to make a wish when The magic isn't there, the magic doesn't care It's hard to make a wish when Love has gone elsewhere Sky diver make it quick now Get it over with, get my feet back on the ground Keep it coming, I won't let go Piece me back together silver and gold Keep it coming now, I won't let it go Piece me back together silver and gold Sky diver make it quick now Get it over with, get my feet back on the ground Sky diver make it quick now Get it over with, get my feet back on the ground

If You Would Just Drop By

ARLO GUTHRIE "Washington County"
words and music by Arlo Guthrie Friends I used to know are coming by To ask me if my situation's high 'Cause sometimes I just stare at the sky Up is down before Her crown I cry CHORUS: If you would just drop by sometime If you would just drop by If you can possible make it up sometime I can be there if I try The world world keeps spinnin' me 'round Bringing me up and bringing me down But I can't get there with my feet on the ground Maybe I oughta start digging a hole around my feet on the ground CHORUS You know once in while as I sit and stare I get the feeling that there's no one there Look at me now as I roll off my chair How did I know that a chair could be out where I stare? CHORUS

Window Seat

John Wesley Harding "Awake"
I was bought on by my mother as her carry-on She had me in the toilet when the seat-belt sign was on I crawled up to the captain down the other end I hid under the seats that's where I played pretend And I ate the wild pretzel and the nuts that fell And the screech of brakes was all I knew for my schoolbell And I know I've got the whole world at my feet In my window seat I learned to eat the sweet, I learned to swallow hard I learned to ease the pressure with free playing cards Spent my teenage setting off all of the smoke alarms Then running down the alley saying please stay calm Met the girl in 7B, we tried to settle down But we couldn't reach the aisle before we hit the ground And I know I've got the whole world at my feet In my window seat And now the sisters of the sky think I'm deaf and dumb As I wait around for upgrades that will never come But I know that we will one day sit on his right hand Be his automatic pilot when this plane must land And the stewardess of Babylon will spread her arms And show us all a thing or two about her charms We'll be tempted by the devil with the magic wand He'll make us stand with arms outstretched then wave us on Into the great beyond (our boarding passes gone) And I know I've got the whole world at my feet In my window seat

Life Keeps Bringing Me Down

ALAN JACKSON "Thirty Miles West"
I'm the poorest old boy that you will ever see Life keeps bringing me down Whenever I'm trying living above my means, Life keeps bringing me down. Yeah, life keeps bringing me down Blues keep coming around Hard living's gonna be the death of me, Life keeps bringing me down. When the Clouds roll in and the sun won't shine Life keeps bringing me down Now my dollar bills ain't worth a dime Life keeps bringing me down Yeah, life keeps bringing me down Big tears drops hitting the ground Well, it won't stop raining on this heart of mine Life keeps bringing me down. Yeah, I hate to wake up when the morning comes, Life keeps bringing me down But I drank a pot of coffee and I'm on the run Life keeps bringing me down. Yeah, life keeps bringing me down, The world keeps spinning around. Yeah that old rat race it ain't no fun Life keeps bringing me down. I've got a mountain of debt to crawl out from under Life keeps bringing me down But one of these days I'm gonna hit the numbers, Life keeps bringing me down. Yeah, life keeps bringing me down, I'm all ground down to the bottom of the ground Yeah, it's been a bummer the whole damn summer, Life keeps bringing me down. Yeah, life keeps bringing me down.
