Kinky Friedman lyrics - Old Testaments New Revelations

Sold American

Original and similar lyrics
(Kinky Friedman) Faded jaded falling cowboy star, Pawnshops itching for your old guitar. Where you're going, God only knows, The sequins have fallen from your clothes. Once you heard the Opry crowd applaud, Now you're hanging out at Fourth and Broad On the rain wet sidewalk remembering the time When coffee with a friend was still a dime. And everything's been sold American, The early Times is finished and the want ads all are read. Everyone's been sold American In dreaming dreams in a rollaway bed. Writing down your memoirs on some window in the frost, Roulette eyes reflecting another morning lost. Hauled in by the metro for killing time and pain With a singing brakeman screaming through your veins. And everything's been sold American, The lonely night is mourning for the death it never dies. Everyone's been sold American Don't let me catch you laughing when the jukebox cries. You told me you were born so much higher than life, But I've seen the faded pictures of your children and your wife. Now they're fumbling through your wallet and they're trying to find your name, It's almost like they raise the price of fame. And everything's been sold American, No place to go and brother, no place to stay. Everyone's been sold American Just let that golden Greyhound roll your soul away.

A Celebration Upon Completion

BRIGHT EYES
My grandfather's name was Moon Because his eyes were bright and round And no amount of time or liquor could dull them My grandmother's name was Joy Bcause it spilled out of her heart And bathed her precious children in its warmth And there was happiness in life Beyond the sorrow and the pain But how they ever found it I cannot explain I guess time has a way of making everything all right It's just there's not enough of it And so we drink and we sing and we celebrate this life And hope that it will last Morning is here and night has passed My grandfather was a doctor He cured the sick with his kind hands And he taught me how to sail and how to find dry land My grandmother was all sweetness When she spoke we all heard bells And they rang in such a way that we were comforted And they held on to each other With all the strength they had And they loved with devotion beyond what I understand But fear has a way Of making sleep unbearable And the days seem cold and long But we'll cry and we dance And we stumble into love In awkward, perfect grace The moon is gone and the sun has took its place The moon is gone and the sun has took its place

Stay Ready (What A Life)

JHENE AIKO "Sail Out"
[Jhene Aiko] We do not exist in Any other instant Here in this dimension You and I are meant to be I have waited lifetimes to find you Now that you're here I can remind you Of the things you've been dreamin' Times two I promise you If you just give me 24 Man, all I need is 24 hours I promise you'll want plenty more You'll probably be with it forever So how does it sound Us on the ground Giving you my love? There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now You gotta stay ready There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now That's why I stay ready [Kendrick Lamar] Tell me find your spot with the warning that I might slip And when you climb on top that's the ultimate road trip Ride on me like your Pac got me thinkin' it's '96 I can rap on some nineties shit, wrap your leggings around my hip I'm so hip to it tourists want to come speculate But if I stay monogamous promise this kiss will always taste like candy And yeah, it's obvious momma now probably can't stand me I'm sure they're tired of this look that you have when you're antsy We gon' fuck around (Mmm), we gon' fuck around And triple through triplets of babies right now And that might break the record and no, that don't mean you're fertile That means we're fucking reckless, plus we don't use protection I find myself reading old text messages when I'm bored We find ourselves sexting 'til that connection is restored I know that sounds immature, but if we never grow up Then I'm wishing good luck on the seats that's inside this Porsche Come to me Come, come to me Look at what you've done to me You put a gun to me Then you brought the sun to me Shine like blood diamonds Learning to have patience Only cause you are timeless The universe energy doesn't lie And this chemistry is infinity at a million times I wrote a million rhymes describing your star power And after 24 bars, you get 24 hours There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now You gotta stay ready There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now That's why I stay ready [2x] All that I know is right now Nothing's for sure but, right now Gotta get yours like, right now, like, right now I been through some shit man But I be on my shit man I decided that what you give is what you're given So I been tryna do it right I been doing like Whatever gets me through the night What a life I'm steady always on the go You steady always on the go We steady losing all control [3x] What a life They say The truth ain't pretty But coming from that pretty mouth The truth is fitting Cause you ain't never talking loud And you know plenty Yeah you know what I'm talking bout Cause you just get me Yeah you so pretty If everything is dipped in gold Then baby it will never grow Everything sweet ain't sugar coated [4x] What a lie What a life What a life that I've been given What a life What a life that I been living What a life What a life we die to live in What a life

Willie And Laura Mae Jones

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD "Dusty In Memphis"
(Tony Joe White) Willie Laura Mae Jones Were our neighbours a long time back They lived right down the road from us In a shack just like our shack The people worked the land together And we learned to count on each other When you live off the land You don't have the time to think about another man's colour The cotton was high and the corn was growing fine But that was another place and another time Sit out on the front porch In the evening when the sun went down Willie would play and the kids would sing And everybody would mess around Daddy'd bring out his guitar And play on through the night Every now and then ol' Willie would grin and say Hey, you play all right Made me feel so good I remember the best times of all When Saturday came around We all would stop by Willie's house and say Do y'all need anything from town? He'd say No, but why don't y'all stop on the way back through? And I'll get Laura Mae, yeah, to cook up some barbecue And you know that's good The cotton was high and the corn was growing fine, yes it was But that was another place and another time Oh, the years rolled past the land And took back what they'd given We all knew we had to move If we were gonna make a living So we all moved off And went about our separate ways It sure was hard to say goodbye To Willie and Laura Mae (Jones), oh yeah The cotton was high and the corn was growing fine, yes it was But that was another place and another time I remember so well The cotton looked so fine But that was another place and another time And it felt so good, yes it did

Hotel California

WILSON PHILLIPS "Greatest Hits"
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell And I was thinking to myself, 'This could be Heaven and this could be Hell' Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way There were voices down that corridor, I thought I heard them say... Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face There's plenty of room at the Hotel California Any time of year (Any time of year) you can find us here Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. Some dance to remember, some dance to forget So I called up the Captain, 'Please bring me my wine' He said,'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine' And still those voices are calling from far away, Wake you up in the middle of the night Just to hear them say... Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face Plenty of room at the Hotel California What a nice surprise (What a nice surprise) bring your alibis Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice And she said 'We are all just prisoners here of our own device' And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast The stab it with their steely knives, But they just can't kill the beast Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door I had to find the passage back To the place I was before 'Relax,'said the night man, We are programmed to receive. And you can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave! So welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face We're living it up at the Hotel California Any time of year (Any time of year) you can find us here
