WAYLON JENNINGS lyrics - Jewels

Six Strings Away

Original and similar lyrics
In days gone by but not forgotten I plowed in the fields and I pulled in the cotton Things you'd never think I've done when you see me now I pick and sing and they think I'm a star But every time I look down at my old guitar I know I'm just six strings away from that same ol' plow. I drive a new Royce Rolls Buy them tailor made clothes How long will good times stay A poor boy ways And hard time days Just six strings away. [Instrumental] I met a girl 'bout a year ago In a little country town where I played a show And though I love her I still wonder just what she'd do If I laid that old guitar down How long would she hang around? Or is she just six strings away from someone new. Well, them six little strings Buy rings and good things But how long would she stay If she knew poor boy ways And and hard time days Just six strings away...

We're Not Here For A Long Time

Huey Lewis and The News "Plan B"
Johnny Colla/Chris Hayes/Huey Lewis Cause and Effect Music/Kinda Blue Music/Huey Lewis Music. All rights administered by Hulex Music, ASCAP. There's a party down on the corner, do you want to go? They got rhythm, a little blues, and a whole lot of soul I don't care what you've got to say You're comin' with me anyway We're not here for a long time We're here for a good time I know it's hard makin' a living every day And I know how hard you've been workin' But now it's time to play Tell that wolf waitin' at your door He'll just have to wait some more We're not here for a long time We're here for a good time Some say the world is ending It might just come to pass Ain't no use in pretending Tonight could be the last Tell the mailman to hold the mail Get ready to wag your tail We're not here for a long time We're here for a good time Some say the world is ending Who knows if it's true? Ain't no use in pretending There's not much we can do Leave a message for those who call We're out havin' us a ball We're not here for a long time We're here for a good time

Homeland

EUROPE "Prisoners In Paradise"
Remember that summer Down by the shoreline I still can hear those old forgotten songs And we made promises to last forever I just can't believe those days are gone There used to be a place that we could call our own We used to think tomorrow was a long , long time But sadness filled my heart When I knew the moment had come When I had to leave those days Behind I felt so free Where I wanted to be the days went so fast How I wish they could last So far from my homeland I'm lost in time my soul's still searchin' for that peace of mind Those sacred landscapes Come miles around And my heart's still beatin' for those country grounds Remember when our hearts Were filled with laughter it echoes in my trail of fallen tears But no matter where I am today or what the future might bring I will remember those Long gone years I can't let go I wanna know Does it have to end For the best of friends So far from my homeland I'm lost in time my soul's still searchin' for that peace of mind Those sacred landscapes Come miles around And my heart's still beatin' for those country grounds Lord I know that those days are gone Long, long, gone I felt so free Where I wanted to be The days went so fast How I wish they could last

Captain Bligh

FILTER "Title Of Record"
I'll give you one good tiny reason I think you could believe I'll give you one good tiny reason I think you could see through it I'm not the kind of man that thinks the truth could hurt me I'm not the kind of man that thinks the truth can see me You know a little bit goes a long way You know a little bit lasts a long time And the time has come to undo the wrong I've done I am a greiving man I can't believe the things I've done to you I am a guilty man And I can't believe the things I've done to you I give you one good tiny reason to push that big suit too far I give you one good tiny reason to smash him and his big car Everybody thinks I'm blue and what everybody think is it's true yeah And I just can't keep it inside So you think it's you So you think it's true You know a little bit lasts a long time You know a little bit goes a long way And the time has come to undo the wrong I've done I am a greiving man I can't believe the things I've done to you I am a beaten man I can't believe the things I've done to you I am a blood-soaked man I can't believe the things I've done to you I am a guilty man I can't believe the things I've done to you And I am a greiving man I can't believe the things I've done to you I am a beaten man I can't believe the things I've done to you (uniteligible gibberish) I tried to pray I tried to pray I tried to pray Yes I will give it a shot Yes I will give it a shot Yes I will give it a shot Shot Shot

Killing Time

JOAN ARMATRADING "Sleight Of Hand"
When you're pleasure seeking I'm left killing time It's a homicide A ritual Don't treat a human like that You're very smart You ignite my flame After all is said and done Baby you're the only one I don't get jealous But when you say you love me I only half believe But baby I could never leave Right now is all I want Right here Here is where you belong With me As long as you stay With me You'll see I'm real good company Sleight of hand The way you play your tricks You cheat on me All the time But I turn my back Cos we had Some Good times Here is where you belong With me As long as you stay With me You'll see I'm real good company

Paper Thin Walls

MODEST MOUSE "The Moon and Antarctica"
These walls are paper thin and everyone hears every little sound Everyone's a voyeurist, they're watching me watch them watch me right now They're shaking hands, they're shaking in their shoes, oh Lord don't shake me down Everyone wants to move them and half of everyone else moves around It's been agreed the whole world stinks so no one's taking showers anymore Laugh hard, it's a long ways to the bank I can't be blamed for nothing anymore It's been a long time since you've been around Laugh hard, it's a long ways to the bank Tow the line to tax the time you know that you don't owe I can't be a fool for everyone that I don't know
