John Henry

Original and similar lyrics
When John Henry was a little baby Sittin' on his mama's knee Well he picked up a feather and a piece of steel And said that's gonna be the death of me Lord, Lord, Lord that's gonna be the death of me Well John Henry had a little woman Name of Polly Ann Well John got sick had to lay down on the bed Polly drove steel like a man Lord, Lord, Lord, Polly drove steel like a man Well John Henry went up on the mountain Well the mountain was sinkin' in He said come on captain I know what I'm doin' It ain't nothin' but my hammer suckin' wind Lord, Lord, Lord, It ain't nothin' but my hammer suckin' wind Well John Henry went up on the mountain Lord the mountain was so high He said we're gonna shake this steel drivin' down Give me a cool drink of water before I die Give me a cool drink of water before I die Some say he came from England Some say he came from Spain But John Henry was nothin' but a Louisiana man And he died with his hammer in his hand Lord, Lord, Lord, he died with his hammer in his hand Steel drivin' man, he died with his hammer in his hand Lord ain't nothin' but my hammer suckin' wind etc. etc.

The Refrain Of John Dillon James

ALABAMA "Songs Of Inspiration II"
Oh, John Dillon James was my good time country buddy Well, we hunted, talked and fished his last days away He was just a hired farm hand, worked old man Walker's land Retired on his 68th birthday Yeah, he wore a size sixteen shoe, had skin like alligator Lord, he could pick up a deer and walk right out of those woods Old Dillon had a million tales but he sung me one refrain And I recall that song by John Dillon James One July Monday morning I met him at the fishing hole But old Dillon wasn't toting his half pint of tin hide His roll your own tobacco string was a-hanging from his pocket His eyes were red as beets, looked like he cried And I know he sat on knees cause his overalls were muddy But my ten year old mind didn't understand He sat down on the bank and wrote this four line refrain And I recall that song by John Dillon James Well, I got my ticket for the ride in the sky I've been talking to the man, I'm gonna fly Paid the price down on my knees A voice from heaven promised me I got my ticket for the ride in the sky Well, it was one year to the day on a July Monday morning I waited at the fishing hole but old Dillon, he didn't show Daddy came down about noon, and said Son, I've got some news Lord's rested old Dillon's soul Yeah, and I walked up to his bedside Looked down at old big Dillon Lord knows that I saw a pair of wings That tables set but I felt good, for at last I understood That refrain sung by John Dillon James Well, I got my ticket for the ride in the sky, Lord, y'all I've been talking to the man, I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly) I paid the price down on my knees A voice from heaven promised me Well, I got my ticket for the ride in the sky Yeah, I got my ticket for the ride in the sky

The Farmer And The Lord

JIM REEVES "Talkin' To Your Heart"
[Spoken] While resting the other evening by the side of the road I saw an old farmer in the field that he just sowed His face was all brown and wrinkled from the sun and the wind And he was talking to the Lord just like he'd be talking to a friend. Well sir, he said with his voice calm and quiet Them corn tassels need stackin' I got no strenght to tie it Had no rain in so long that the fields are mighty dusty And it's been so unbearable hot that the kids were even gettin' fussy. Now that grass down and the pasture it should be knee high If we could just have a little shower Lord, It might keep the calf from going dry Oh but listen to me talking you'd think I wasn't grateful Why if you didn't know me so well Lord You'd think I was down right hateful. You'd think I frogot about that new calf that you sent And the money in the mail that took care of the rent Mama's cough's better and Johnny's home from the navy And that good Sunday dinner of chicken and dumplings and gravy. And that new preacher you sent us Lord he's sure a fine young man Why he's just convertin' them sinners to beat the band Well guess I'll mosey on home now Lord I won't take no more your time. Guess there's plenty folks here about waitin' to ring your line Evening to you Lord and watch us over tonight And don't you worry about us now Lord 'Cause everything is gonna be all right...

Voodoo Chile

JIMI HENDRIX "Electric Ladyland"
Well, I'm a voodoo chile Lord I'm a voodoo chile Well, the night I was born Lord I swear the moon turned a fire red The night I was born I swear the moon turned a fire red Well my poor mother cried out 'lord, the gypsy was right!' And I seen her, fell down right dead (Have mercy) Well, mountain lions found me there waitin' And set me on a eagles back Well, mountain lions found me there, And set me on a eagles wing (Its' the eagles wing, baby, what did I say) He took me past to the outskirts of infinity, And when he brought me back, He gave me a venus witch's ring Hey! And he said 'Fly on, fly on' Because I'm a voodoo chile, yeah, voodoo chile Hey! Well, I make love to you, And lord knows you'll feel no pain Say, I make love to you in your sleep, And lord knows you felt no pain (Have mercy) 'Cause I'm a million miles away And at the same time I'm right here in your picture frame (Yeah! What did I say now) 'Cause I'm a voodoo chile Lord knows, I'm a voodoo chile (yeah!) Well my arrows are made of desire From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines Say my arrows are made of desire, desire From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines (Way down by the Methane Sea, yeah) I have a humming bird and it hums so loud, You think you were losing your mind, hmmm... Well I float in liquid gardens And Arizona new red sand (Yeah) I float in liquid gardens Way down in Arizona red sand Well, I taste the honey from a flower named Blue, Way down in California And the in New York drowns as we hold hands 'Cause I'm a voodoo chile Lord knows I'm a voodoo chile
