Patience Of Angels

Original and similar lyrics
From the top of the bus She thought she saw him wave She saw Tuesdays and forgetfulness And a little money saved Does she know, I don't know But from here I can tell That it would try the patience of angels It would try the patience of angels, angels And you know something's wrong When the morning hurts your eyes And the baby won't stop crying You'll be waiting till you die Would I be any good And if I was would I find That it would try the patience of angels It would try the patience of angels There's a door in a wall in a house in a street In a town where no-one knows her name Does she know, I don't know But from here I can tell There's a door in a wall in a house in a street In a town where no-one knows her name Does she know, I don't know But from here I can tell She's the patience of angels

Angels At My Gate

Manfred Mann
There's a finger on the dial, The lucky wheel goes round, Little joker knows he can't escape. The same time every year, The fun fair's back in town, Numbers in the air like ticker tape. 58, 56, 54, Good angels at my door. 63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58, Good angels at my gate. Throw a seven down, Place another bet, The joker laughs as the stakes get higher. The gambler and the clown, Without a safety net, Balancing unsteady on a wire. 58, 56, 54, Good angels at my door. 63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58, Good angels at my gate. There's a finger on the dial, The lucky wheel goes round, Little joker knows he can't escape. The same time every year, The fun fair's back in town, Numbers in the air like ticker tape. 58, 56, 54, Good angels at my door. 63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58, Good angels at my gate. 59, 58, 57, 56, 55, 54, Good angels at my door. 63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58, Good angels at my gate. 59, 58, 57, 56, 55, 54, [fading]

Shuttin' Detroit Down

JOHN ANDERSON "Bigger Hands"
My daddy taught me that in this country everyone's the same You work hard for your dollar and you never pass the blame When it don't go your way Now I see all these big shots whinin' on my evening news About how they're losin' billions and it's up to me and you To come running to the rescue Well pardon me if I don't shed a tear Cause they're selling make believe And we don't buy that here Cause in the real world they're shutting Detroit down While the boss man takes his bonus pay and jets on out of town And DC's bailing out them bankers as the farmers auction ground Yeah while they're living it up on Wall Street in that New York City town Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down Well that old man's been workin' in that plant most all of his life Now his pension plan's been cut in half and he can't afford to die And it's a crying shame Cause he ain't the one to blame When I look down and see his calloused hands Well let me tell you friend it gets me fightin' mad Cause in the real world they're shutting Detroit down While the boss man takes his bonus pay and jets out of town And DC's bailing out the bankers as the farmers auction ground Yeah while they're living it up on Wall Street in that New York City town Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down Yeah while there' living it up on Wall Street in that New York City town Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down In the real world they're shuttin Detroit down They're shuttin' Detroit down

Cactus Texas

WAYLON JENNINGS "Right For The Time"
Do you remember Cactus Texas nothing but a wide place in the road Eighteen wheelers never go there main Street's just too narrow for the load A little town of honest people some we haven't seen for quite awhile I was young and restless and we both were full of dreams and running wild We left our old hometown and family barely had a nickel to our name We were out to win the world not once looking back or losing aim We hit the big town and the big time not a lot of effort in the deal But in the bargain we lost touch with one another and old feelings that were real In a big house up on easy street where too much never seems to be enough We're not the same two people far away from all the days when the times were rough Including you and I is separated by a wall It's not something we can talk about in fact we seldom even talk at all I don't think we realize how or why we ever came this far Let's go back to Cactus Texas maybe once we're there we'll find out where we are

Half Open Door

ANE BRUN "A Temporary Dive"
When I was a little girl and I couldn't fall asleep My mother left the door half open so that I could feel at ease Then she would wander around the house at night singing made up songs for me I never felt alone or lonely when she sang so softly Around the corner of our house There's some people hanging out every day They are always worried Chasing something they believe they need to survive It's not rain or light From my half open door in the night When I was a little girl and I couldn't fall asleep My mother left the door half open so that I could feel at ease As she would wander around the house at night singing made up songs for me I never felt alone or lonely when she sang so softly Around the corner of our house There's some people hanging out every day They are always worried Chasing something they believe they need to survive It's not rain or light From my half open door in the night When I was young and fell ill I always wanted this That my mother would put her warm hands on my head I still want this

This Town Goes Down At Sunset

BRIAN WILSON "Orange Crate Art"
Van Dyke Parks This town goes down at sunset When the hills start turning red The streets roll up at eight o'clock Everybody goes off to bed Everybody goes off to bed There's someone callin' someone names You can hear a screen door slam A car goes skatin' down the road Everybody gets out of bed Everybody gets out of bed You took the key to my heart's door And you set off on your own I shook it off as a passing phase Everybody must come back home Everybody must come back home This town gets up at daybreak When the hills start turnin' blue A whistle blows a rooster crows Everybody's got things to do Everybody's got things to do
