Dust My Broom

Original and similar lyrics
I'm gettin' up soon in the mornin' I believe I'll dust my broom I'm gettin' up soon in the mornin' I believe I'll dust my broom I quit the best I'm lovin' Now my friends can get in my room I'm gonna write a letter, telephone every town I know I'm gonna write a letter, telephone every town I know If I don't find her in mississippi She be in East Monroe I know I don't want no woman Who wants every downtown man she meets I don't want no woman Who wants every downtown man she meets Man cause no good darlin' They shouldn't lie her on the street yeah I believe, I believe my time ain't long I believe, I believe my time ain't long I ain't gonna leave my baby And break up my happy home

Tear Stained Letter

JOHNNY CASH "American IV: The Man Comes Around"
I'm gonna write a tear stained letter, I'm gonna mail it straight to you. I'm gonna bring back to your mind, What you said about always bein' true. Bout our secret hidin' places; Bein' daily satisfied. I can see you sittin' and readin' it, While you hang you head and cry. I just hope you're not so sad, You're gonna go down suicide. I'm gonna write a tear stained letter: Put it special delivery. 'Cause it's gonna be full of stuff, That's only known to you and me. 'Bout how every time I get turned on, You turn me off and bring me down. It'll be about the darkest news, That ever did arrive in your hometown. It'll be about the saddest thing, Your mailman ever did bring around. I'm gonna write a tear stained letter, I'm gonna tell you one more time. That you still could reconsider, And come back to bein' mine. An' if you think about what I'm sayin', It'd be hard to refuse. Just be sure you think a long time, On the answer that you choose. It will be a most important piece, Of personal, private news. [Instrumental break] I'm gonna write a tear stained letter: Mark it "Personal Private News." An' I hope you'll keep it to yourself, An' don't go 'round cryin' the blues. Givin' off a bad impression, As to what went really wrong. When what it was was that suddenly, The music was all gone. And this man and this woman got cut off, In the middle of our song. I'm gonna write a tear stained letter: I'm gonna put it to a tune. So I'll be sendin' with it, A sweet melody for you. And not some red-hot, upbeat zinger, That'll set your body on fire. But a hunk of love included, Meant to take you a little higher. And to settle on your sweet, sweet mind, At night when you retire. I'm gonna write a tear stained letter.

Gonna Write A Letter

WAYLON JENNINGS "Black On Black"
I'm gonna write a letter, gonna mail it today Just as soon as I think of the words to say I've been needing to send it for nearly a year There's a woman back home who's waiting to hear I meant to tell you, dear Susannah I'm a long way from Louisiana and you And I know I promised to be returning Just as soon as I've saved the money I'm earning for you But I'm married to twins and I'm living in Peru Well, I'm gonna write a letter Get it off my mind But you know the words Are so hard to find Sitting, thinking with my pen in my hand How can I make her understand? I meant to tell you, dear Julia I'm a long way from the States, mosquitoes and you I'll send some money to help with the kids I'd like to thank you for all that you did It's true Louisiana, and I'm with Susannah, too Got me a letter, it arrived today The words I read just blew me away I don't believe I've ever felt so low How could Susannah treat me so? She said, I meant to tell you, my sweet honey I'm a long way from your love, your money and you Please don't think me under And I do believe you'll understand me too I got a bar and grill with Phil in Kalamazoo

Gonna Be A Long Time

JOHN BUTLER TRIO "April Uprising"
Well everybody's lookin for something they can't find, Walking straight ahead blind folded production line, Onyl taking time for one type of shoe shine. Don't look left/right now you got a street fine. Everybody lookin for just a little more. Working late nights trying to fight off the day glow. Waiting for the come-around but it is a no show. Driving in the fast lane lookin for the slow-mo... Oh whats in store I don't know anymore. Oh what's inside 'cos I can't hide from it now more. Oh what you see well it's not me anymore. Oh I don't know well I don't know man anymore Because I tell you once I tell you twice, gonna be a long time But you don't take no ones advice, gonna be a long time you, Where were you, you weren't listenin, gonna be a long time Gonna be a long time. So now your face down, face lookin like a frying pan. Hitting up the clubs trying to feel like a real man. Beating your chest just like you're king kong but you're just a gui-tar no-string no-song. Feeling free like ya don't even know it, man you're towing the line hoping you just don't blow it. Man ya stuck in the mainframe trying to win the big game so much potential it even makes it more of a shame, shame, shame. Here we go again, same old shit just another name. Looking at the destiny there in your palm, But now you got your strings but you got no song. So sing, sing, sing - shake it like a chicken wing. It's not what you get it's about what you bring-bring-bring. So bring it, bring it to the table, not because you have to 'cos you're willing and you're able! Oh what's in store I don't know anymore. Oh what's inside 'cos I can't hide from it no more. Oh what you see well it's not me anymore. Oh I don't know, I don't know anymore because I tell you once I tell you twice, gonna be a long time. But you don't take no one's advice, gonna be a long time. You, where were you, you weren't listening, gonna be a long time. Gonna be a long time.

Sara

JOHN ANDERSON "Takin' The Country Back"
First date, first kiss Well I never will forget The way you looked that night Parked out, 'cross town Watchin' the stars fall down Girl your hair was soft and brown and Just before we get too far I'd hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back Made plans, got rings And had us a million dreams Where our road might lead It wasn't long, we had a truck With all of our things boxed up Left town in a cloud of dust and Got movin', improvin' Why I can't say But suddenly it seems to be Such a long way back I've tried, you've tried And nobody's satisfied Is this where it all ends We can't be so far down Where we can't turn around Pick up this love we found Just before we get too far I hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way Just before we get too far I here you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back.
