JOHN DENVER lyrics - Whose Garden Was This?

Old Folks

Original and similar lyrics
The old folks don't talk much They talk so slowly when they do They are rich they are poor Their illusions are gone They share one heart for two Their homes all smell of time Of old photographs And an old fashioned song Though you may live in town You live so far away When you've lived too long Have they laughed too much Do their dry voices crack Talking of things gone by Have they cried too much A tear or two still always seems To cloud the eye They tremble as they watch the old silver clock When day is through Tick tock oh so slow It says yes it says no It says I wait for you The old folks dream no more Their books have gone to sleep The piano's out of tune The little cat is dead And no more do they sing on a sunday afternoon The old folks move no more Their world become to small Their bodies feel like lead They might look out a window Or else sit it a chair Or else they stay in bed And if they still go out Arm in arm, arm in arm In the morning chill Its to have a good cry To say their last goodbye To one who's older still And then they go home To the old silver clock When day is through Tick tock so so slow It says yes it says no It says I wait for you The old folks never die They just put down their heads And go to sleep one day They will hold each others hands Like children in the dark But one will get lost anyway And the other will remain Just sitting in a room Which makes no sound It doesn't matter now The song has died away And echo's all around You'll see them as they walk Through the sun filled parks Where children run and play It hurst to much to smile It hurts so much But life goes on for still another day As they try to escape the old silver clock When day is through Tick tock oh so slow It says yes it says no It says I wait for you The old old silver clock Thats hanging on the wall That waits for us all

The Lady

Denny Sandy
The lady she had a silver longue. For to sing she said, And maybe that's all. Wait for the dawn and we will have that song. When it ends it will seem That we hear silence fall. The lady she had a golden heart, For to love she said And she did not lie. Wait for the dawn and we'll watch for the sun. As we turn it will seem To arise in the sky. We heard that song while watching the skies, Oh the sound it rang, So clear through the cold. Then silence fell and the sun did arise On a beautiful morning of silver and gold.

Made Up My Mind

LYFE JENNINGS "Lyfe 268-192"
[1st Verse:] Lord they really think they fooling you by coming to church on Sunday praying and laying hands on folks stomping and jumping around faking the holy ghost but its a thin line between walking it and talking it living it and giving it or just pretending it's alright and did they really think that they could pull the wool over your eyes lord did they really think that by faking they were saved that they would get the same reward this be the realest thing I ever wrote for sure after this a lot of folks wont like me no mo' but after this I gotta go answer to you Lord so I've made up my mind I'm a go to church on Sunday and sing a song that may hurt somebody's feelings so that maybe thy will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven and hopefully they will see how much they really be discouraging a little old sinner like me [2nd Verse:] And Lord who they think they jiving by singing these songs full of glory then out in the world it's a different story I'm running out of people to pray for me I'm not trying to act like I'm the perfect man but if you speak about it, you should be about it not just preach about it all day cause if you do you run the risk of chasing some of the most beautiful people away and it is never my intention to discourage you rather encourage you to change your life today this be the realest thing I ever had to say, but after this a lot of folks wont like me no mo' but after this I gotta go answer to you Lord so I've made up my mind I'm a go to church on Sunday and sing a song that may hurt somebody's feelings so that maybe thy will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven and hopefully they will see how much they really be discouraging a little old sinner like me

Lucky Charm

Jets To Brazil
How long will you wait for me to come around? And wouldn't it be great if everything worked out? I wouldn't come home late after hiding out. I'd tell you everything. How I couldn't life without you now. How long will it take before I wake up unafraid to take you in my arms and hold you like a lucky charm? I know it's too late but wait for me to turn around. I'm coming home so if you're leaving, walk slow. All that I can ask is forgiveness for what's past. You know who I am but will you know me in the end? I know it's too late but wait for me to turn around. I'm almost home so if you're leaving walk slow. All that I can ask is forgiveness for what's past. You know who I am, but will you know me in the end? I know it's too late but wait for me to turn around. I'm almost home, so if you're leaving, walk slow. I know you're not waiting anymore and I'm not gonna change. I try to reach you, to let you know, but I'm walking too slow. Hey, how's your summer going? It's good to see you again. I'm gonna make a record so I never forget what it was I wrecked. So tired of my mind. You're a genius all the time. The things that I can't say are all thinking me insane these days. I know it's late.

Night Train To Lorca

THE POGUES "Peace And Love"
(Jem Finer) Across the dark and dusty plain Where scars of old dry rivers run Night unfolds, a coal black shroud Across the hard and stony ground Distant stars shining bright In the cavern of the night All is still and silence screams To the thunder of the Lorca train Flaming steal swift as wind Wires hum the rails ring Smokestack burning fiery sparks Rise up to the stars Towns asleep by empty roads Churches rise from crooked roofs Cloaked in darkness nothing stirs Grow smaller darker disappear See the moon so still and cold A million stars that shed no warmth Your nightmares all come out to play In the silver light Wait for sunrise in the east Long shadows crawl across the plain The ghosts of night will disappear And lay your fears to rest Steam hissed up, the hot coals glowed The furnace blazed, the wheels they rolled On tracks of iron, straight and cold The silver moonlight danced The flames are in the fireman's eye Orange in the engines glow Gleaming pistons whirling cranks Wait for dawn the rooster's crow
