John Wesley Harding lyrics - The Name Above The Title

Driving In The Rain

Original and similar lyrics
With all your vice and volume the whole of last week The plastic pretenders to paradise speak Of your fictions of triumph and legends of pain The sense that you'd left you'd be back once again There's a glint in your eyes and the sky starts to laugh It's two to one you never did things by half And I'm out on the rooftops yelling your name Cos without you this town will be too much the same You went driving in the rain I'll never see you again There's nothing in the air left to compare To all of your passion and genius pain You went driving in the rain I'll never see you again There was talk of an illness that came by surprise The papers did penance, the whole town took sides Oh, but it was your dancing and mischeivous mind And then we were shot of you, but no-one's that blind And there's flowers have bloomed down the side of your street Where you and your demons did openly meet And I hope it's wide open where you've got to There's closed minds in this town that couldn't accept you (Chorus) They're making excuses, the reasons the facts They're reasoning how long you'll take to come back But there's guilt in their prayers, maybe shame in their pride They know it was no fault of yours down inside They steps can't be retraced cos tracks disappear And there'd be no welcome for you back here Because you were the worst side of everyone's soul They had to get rid or face up to the cold (Chorus)

I Wish

LUIS FONSI
I wish I can still feel your body laying by me, Sometimes is like you never left, I never thought I could miss someone like this, But no one else can ever take your place, I close my eyes and see your face, Chorus: Everyday I wake up thinking how will I get through this, I'm losing my faith… I wish there was something to get over you, I wish that my heart would remember were through, I wish I could see you walk by and ignore you like someone I once knew, I wish I could look in your eyes and be strong, To say I don't need you around anymore, I wish I could find someone new and forget you, Wish I never met you, I wish I could move on, But though I try there's nothing left for me to do, There's just no getting over you, Girl you know I never meant to hurt you, I know how much I made you cry, I never thought you'd ever say good-bye, I was so wrong and I admit, forgive me I regret it, If only all this pain could bring you back again, (Repeat chorus) Baby I still love you… (Repeat chorus 2x)

Orphan Of The Road

JOHNNY CASH "Man In Black"
From a carny show and a rodeo that shared a three-day stand, A cowboy met a fiery carny queen In new spring nights amid the lights of the painted carny van. They laughed and loved and shared short-lived dreams, But the carny show and the rodeo went their separate ways, And the carny season bloomed and soon moved on, And I was born on a winter morn to the dark-eyed carny queen, The too-late son of something that was gone, The black-sheep child that grew up wild from the seed the four winds sowed, Unwanted son of ice and fire, an orphan of the road. I was still a child when my mama died of a chill that closed her eyes, So I was left to grow up on my own, Without a name, too wild to tame. No one cared to try. So mostly I was mostly left alone. In dingy bars and cold boxcars, hobo jungle camps, I joined the men who drift from town to town. The surgin' flood of restless blood flowed inside my veins. I'd never find the time to settle down. The black-sheep child... In the misty rain, I caught the train that slowed down through the town, And I pulled myself into the boxcar door. In a passing light in the deep gray night, I saw the still dark form Of an old man lying sick upon the floor. And he said "I tried to find her, but they told me that she'd died, And that she'd left an only son behind, And I tried to find him, but I never did, but I know I could rest in peace If I could just see him once before I die." I found a match and I quickly scratched it into a flicker and flame, Then I held it close and I gently raised his head. "My mother, sir," I said of her, "I have her same dark eyes." He smiled a cowboy smile and then was dead. The black-sheep child...

The Gang's All Here

DROPKICK MURPHYS "The Gang's All Here"
- Lyrics / Music: Dropkick Murphys (Casey, Barton, Kelly) - Well the devil's nipping at your heels and this time it's for real A lonely hunger starts to gnaw as you wish away the pain Of another desperate dead end day forever filled with sadness To forget about the pain you take your bottle, drink your grave Chorus: Singing Hail, Hail, the Gangs All Here. Leave your worries at the door boy, they're not going anywhere Hail, hail the gang's all here When the going gets tough, I know my friends will still be there Well you're walking down the road and the wind is in your face You're down and out and the unemployment line's a mile long The money in your pocket may not get you through the day But cheer up son I know a place where mugs like us belong Chorus: Pick your heart up off the ground though I'm sure it weights a ton You're no better or no worse than any mothers son Though you're up against all odds and you're backed against the wall You recall the cheer, The Gang's All Here and shout! Chorus:

Almost And Nearly

Katydids
Just a small town boy in a poppy field. Far from his home and his mother's milk. Chasing the moon, out of his head, into the night, given up for dead. Sleepless boy on a bed of tears. All wrapped up in his momma's fears. Crawling away, calling her name. Into the vein of the boy who's never found, on the road to Shangri-La. (chorus) The boy who's never found Shangri-La The boy who's never found.. Sweet temptation in a silver spoon Cross that path to a different room Enter the door, open your mind, Try for the best, don't know what you'll find. Darkness hangs on athreat to kill Small town man couldn't get his appeal Track down, find out sit tight, Ask how much they'll miss the boy who's never found, On the road to Shangri-La (Chorus) (Instrumental Break) (Chorus, followed by killer climax.)

Funky Love

Just a small town boy in a poppy field. Far from his home and his mother's milk. Chasing the moon, out of his head, into the night, given up for dead. Sleepless boy on a bed of tears. All wrapped up in his momma's fears. Crawling away, calling her name. Into the vein of the boy who's never found, on the road to Shangri-La. (chorus) The boy who's never found Shangri-La The boy who's never found.. Sweet temptation in a silver spoon Cross that path to a different room Enter the door, open your mind, Try for the best, don't know what you'll find. Darkness hangs on athreat to kill Small town man couldn't get his appeal Track down, find out sit tight, Ask how much they'll miss the boy who's never found, On the road to Shangri-La (Chorus) (Instrumental Break) (Chorus, followed by killer climax.)
