JOHN PRINE lyrics - John Prine

Sam Stone

Original and similar lyrics
Sam Stone came home, To his wife and family After serving in the conflict overseas. And the time that he served, Had shattered all his nerves, And left a little shrapnel in his knee. But the morphine eased the pain, And the grass grew round his brain, And gave him all the confidence he lacked, With a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back. Chorus: There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes, Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose. Little pitchers have big ears, Don't stop to count the years, Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. Mmm.... Sam Stone's welcome home Didn't last too long. He went to work when he'd spent his last dime And Sammy took to stealing When he got that empty feeling For a hundred dollar habit without overtime. And the gold rolled through his veins Like a thousand railroad trains, And eased his mind in the hours that he chose, While the kids ran around wearin' other peoples' clothes... Repeat Chorus: Sam Stone was alone When he popped his last balloon Climbing walls while sitting in a chair Well, he played his last request While the room smelled just like death With an overdose hovering in the air But life had lost its fun And there was nothing to be done But trade his house that he bought on the G, I. Bill For a flag draped casket on a local heroes' hill Repeat Chorus


SANTANA "Freedom"
Winning (Music/ Lyrics: Leo Ballard) One day I was on the ground When I needed a hand And it couldn't be found I was so far down That I couldn't get up You know and One day I was one of life's losers Even my friends were my ac-cus-ers And in my head Lost before I'd begun I had a dream But it turned to dust What I thought was love That must have been lust I was living in style When the walls fell in When I played my hand I looked like a joker Turn around Fate must have woke her 'Cause lady luck she was Waiting outside the door Chorus: I'm winning I'm winning I'm winning And I don't intend on losing again Too bad it belonged to me It was the wrong time And I meant to be It took a long time And I knew for now I can see the day That I breath for Friends agree there's a need To play the game And to win again Chorus: (repeat first line 5x's) (repeat last line 4x's) Repeat Verse II Chorus: (repeat first line 5x's)

Head Over Heels

Gos Go
head over heels Been running so long I've nearly lost all track of time In every direction I couldn't see the warning signs I must be losin' it 'Cuz my mind plays tricks on me It looked so easy But you know looks sometimes deceive Been running so fast Right from the starting line No more connections I don't need any more advice One hand's just reaching out And one's just hangin' on It seems my weaknesses Just keep going strong CHORUS Head over heels Where should I go Can't stop myself Outta control Head over heels No time to think Looks like The whole world's out of sync Been running so hard When what I need is to unwind The voice of reason Is one I left so far behind I waited so long So long to play this part And just remembered That I'd forgotten about my heart CHORUS

No Way

Jim Boyd "First Come Last Served"
Everyday I learn Of a new direction that I must go in And it's everyone's concern Cause they all tell me on television That I must find out before too long That their way is right and my way is wrong Cause I'm not the same I don't play the game But I've got to listen Or I won't fit in they say Chorus: No way When I look out my eyes I see the things that I need to see But I'm told they tell me lies Cause we don't agree politically And now I must find out before too long That the money's right And my color's wrong As the morning news plays the biased blues But they won't admit cause It just won't fit on the page Chorus: No way Bridge: And I've been listening to this crap For so long without a say Sing a different song It don't mean it's wrong Won't you listen here today Chorus: No way


Graham Parker "12 Haunted Episodes"
Intro Am C (twice) (C) Am C As you look into an invisible landscape Dm7 C and the waves of time part behind your back G As your life crumbles and turns into fiction Dm7 C and the end of it becomes a fact Am C The ghosts of children will run in your garden Dm7 C and play with an imaginary ball G You will be released and pardoned Dm7 C Now there's nowhere left to fall Dm7 C Dm7 C CHORUS Good bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye Dm7 (add G) C Dm7 C Now fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly Am C A steam rises out of the water Dm7 C and a mist hangs over the field G The tears of your wife and daughter Dm7 C have all but released their yield Am C The ghosts of lovers will walk toward you Dm7 C and beckon you into their arms G and the mighty bells of chaos Dm7 C will no longer sound their alarms CHORUS repeat (plus way way way way way) Dm7 G Shake off your carcass leave us in the dark C C That's us fumbling 'round like ants on the ground Dm7 G in palaces and hovels reading mystery novels C C But we never get the plot Maybe you got it now Dm7 G Shake that mortal coil leave us to toil C C take off that weight take off that weight Dm7 G Listen to the silence know the end of violence C C is a clean slate Is a clean slate CHORUS repeat
