Kinky Friedman lyrics - Old Testaments New Revelations

Nashville Casualty And Life

Original and similar lyrics
(Kinky Friedman) In faded gabardine he used to stand Down by the Union Station with that ol' hat in his hand. A banjo-pickin' devil, a singin' rag-time saint. The young folks called him beautiful, the old folks called him quaint. And the station-master pointed to the sign And they busted him for loiterin' when he was makin' memories rhyme. Out in the falling snow he'd sing his song To a world too cold to listen and too white to sing along. Just a Nashville casualty and life Done left him without a dime. Ever since the good Lord took his wife You'll find him strummin' on the corner all the time. And most of Music City never the saw the world within the song Of a Nashville casualty and life â€' goes on. In the attic sets a dusty hat and cane And the kids they found a banjo there all rusted from the rain. I strummed a little rusty rag-time beat And I sang for every soul out on the street. I could almost see him standin' in the rain His black and blinded face reflectin' all the pain Of all the years and people passin' by And all the ringin' memories that can make a banjo cry. Just a Nashville casualty and life It's a riff that's hell to play. You sings for your livin' in the street And you sleeps in the back of some cafà And most of Music City never sees the world within the song Of a Nashville casualty and life â€' goes on.

Nick Of Time

ZOEGIRL "Life"
I led a lonesome journey Full of disdain and fury I kept my angered yearning Close to me like fire burning I watched a million chances Slip through my weathered hands I almost lost myself when I looked around There was nobody else Chorus: In the nick of time You opened up my mind And suddenly I saw the world much clearer In the nick of time You turned my water to wine And suddenly I didn't feel the fear Right before my eyes You showed me there was life that to be found You're the miracle I prayed about you You were the one to save my life In the nick of time I followed habits around Been swept above off the clouds But fallen down left shaken up and down by the pills I'd taken I could have kept on going With no one ever knowing Who really wants to see a tired nobody like me Chorus (2x) I could not, I could not believe That you were right there waiting I never, no, I never dreamed That you'd be right there waiting Oh you were there for me And when I couldn't see, I couldn't, no, I couldn't see You showed me life (2x) LIFE (3x) Chorus (2x)

I'd Do It All Again

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Killer Country"
Well, the band was on its final break When he came walking in The lies that showed more than his age He was drunk, worn and thin He sat down behind the ol' piano And he ran through a couple of notes And he said, "Would somebody buy me a drink, boys To kinda help me clear my throat?" And he said, "What would you give to hear a song? What prize do memories bring? It ain't every day you get To hear living legend sing" I may forget a line or two A few words now and then It takes a drink to make me think And live it all again This gray you see don't bother Jerry Lee And neither do these lines I may have seen some better days, boys But God knows, I ain't reached my prime I've got some scars from a woman's war And playing those one-night stands Lord only knows, if I had the time I'd do it all again Yes, I could still make 'em dance Like I did in times that's gone And I can still make 'em cry And I can touch 'em with a song I can still yet turn 'em on The way that I did back then Lord only knows, if I had the time I'd do it all again

A Song For You

ARETHA FRANKLIN "Let Me In Your Life"
I've been so many places in my life and time I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme I've acted out my life in stages With ten thousand people watching But we're alone now and I'm singin' this song for you I know your image of me is what I hope to be, baby I've treated you unkindly but girl can't you see There's no one more important to me So darling can't you please see through me 'cause we're alone now and I'm singin' my song for you You taught me precious secrets of the truth, withholdin'nothin' You came out in front and I was hiding Listen to the melody cause my love's in there hiding I love you in a place where there's no space or time I love you for my life, 'cause you're a friend of mine And when my life is over, remember when we were together We were alone and I was singin' my song for you I love you in a place where there's no space or time I've loved you for my life, yes, you're a friend of mine And when my life is over, remember when we were together We were alone and I was singin' my song for you, yes We were alone and I was singin' this song for you, baby We were alone and I was singin' my song, Singin' my song, singin' my song, singin' my song Singin' my song
