KENNY ROGERS lyrics - 20 Greatest Hits


Original and similar lyrics
In a bar in Toledo,across from the depot, On a barstool she took off her ring. I thought I'd get closer So I walked on over. I sat down and asked her her name. When the drinks finally hit her, She said, I'm no quitter, But I finally quit living on dreams. I'm hungry for laughter, And here ever after I'm after whatever the other life brings. In the mirror I saw him, And I closely watched him. I thought how he looked out of place. He came to the woman Who sat there beside me. He had a strange look on his face. The big hands were calloused, He looked like a mountain, For a minute I thought I was dead. But he started shaking, His big heart was breaking, He turned to the woman and said, You picked a fine time to leave me,Lucille With four hungry children and a crop in the field. I've had some bad times, I've lived through some sad times, But this time the hurtin' won't heal. You picked a fine time to leave me,Lucille. After he left us,I ordered more whiskey. I thought how she'd made him look small. From the lights of the barroom to the rented hotel room We walked without talking at all. She was a beauty,but when she came to me She must have thought I'd lost my mind. I couldn't hold her, for the words that he told her Kept comin' back time after time.

As Cool As I Am

Dar Williams "Mortal City"
Yea, there was a time I didnt like the love, I liked the climbers, I was no sister then, I was running out of time and one liners, And I was afraid, like you are when youre too young to know the time, and So I watched the way you take your fear and hoard the horizon, You point, you have a word for every woman you can lay your eyes on, Like you own them just because you bought the time, And you turn to me, you say you hope Im not threatened, Oh -- Im not that petty, as cool as I am, I thought youd know this already, I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women. So now were at a club, you watch the woman dancing, she is drunk, She is smiling and shes falling in a slow, descending funk, And the whole bar is loud and proud and everybodys trying, yeah. You play the artist, saying, Is it how she moves, or how she looks? I say, its loneliness suspended to our own like grappling hooks, And as long as shes got noise, shes fine. But I could teach her how I learned to dance when the musics ended, Oh -- and thats not petty, as cool as I am, I thought youd know this already, I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women. You tried to make me doubt, to make me guess, tried to make me feel like a little less, Oh, I liked you when your soul was bared, I thought you knew how to be scared, And now its amazing what you did to make me stay, But truth is just like time, it catches up and it just keeps going, And so Im leaving, you can find out how much better things can get, And if it helps, Id say I feel a little worse than I did when we met, So when you find someone else, you can try again, it might work next time, You look out of the kitchen window and you shake your head and say low, If I could believe that stuff, Id say that woman has a halo, And I look out and say, Yeah, shes really blond, And then I go outside and join the others, I am the others, Oh -- and thats not easy, I dont know what you saw, I want somebody who sees me, I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women.

Escape Is At Hand For The Travellin' Man

Tragically Hip
It was our third time in New York it was your fourth time in New York we were fifth and sixth on the bill we talk a little about our bands talk a little of our future plans it's not like we were best of friends that number scheme comes back to me in times beyond our heartbeat We hung around til the final band called 'Escape is at Hand for the Travellin' Man' you yelled in my ear this music speaks to me they launched into 'Lonely From Rock n Roll' followed by 'They Checked Out An Hour Ago' closing with 'All Desires Turn Concrete' those melodies come back to me at times beyond our heartbeat I guess I'm too slow yes I'm too, yes I'm too slow but you said anytime of the day was fine you said any time of the night was also fine I walked through your revolving door got no answer on the seventh floor elevator gave a low moan the pigeons sagged the wire with their weight listening to the singing chambermaid she sang 'They Checked Out an Hour Ago' Those melodies come back to me in times beyond our heartbeat I guess I'm too slow yes I'm too, yes I'm too slow but you said anytime of the day was fine you said any time of the night was also fine our heartbeat, our heartbeat our heartbeat long conversation idle chit-chat maybe dive in or maybe hang back idle conversation or idle chit-chat maybe dive in or maybe hang back

Leaving On A Jet Plane

ANDY WILLIAMS "The Andy Williams Show"
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go I'm standing here outside your door I hate to wake you up to say goodbye But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn The taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn Already I'm so lonesome. I could cry. [Chorus:] So kiss me and smile for me Tell me that you'll wait for me Hold me like you'll never let me go. I'm leavin' on a jet plane I don't know when I'll be back again Oh, babe, I hate to go. There's so many times I've let you down So many times I've played around I tell you now, they don't mean a thing Ev'ry place I go, I'll think of you Ev'ry song I sing, I'll sing for you When I come back, I'll wear your wedding ring. [Chorus] Now the time has come to leave you One more time, let me kiss you Then close your eyes, I'll be on my way. Dream about the days to come When I won't have to leave alone About the times, I won't have to say, [Chorus]

As The World Turns

Now, I thought I would talk about today For your consideration, as the world turns As the world turns, you read in all these scriptures About the world, find out that the world does turn! As the world keeps spinning, we live these days Dollar bill done drove the whole world crazy While sitting on the porch letting ganja blaze Never hesitate a moment to enhance my phrase Since I needed that escape I take my pull Seen the thugs on the corner trying to act all cool Pretty much out of character I look right through, their transparent exterior You in my book getting written and I'm the derriere Thought you was peeping me but I was aware of ya You peep my ill expressions, how I just glare about Trying to trace my inner world and my whereabouts Well try on, try on I'm watching everything that's going down And it ain't nothing that I ain't been around The same ghetto but a different town Weeell, I remember growing up in the P-a-c It was a whole lot of love in my family I had clothes on my back and shoes on my feet Times we didn't have a lot but that was fine with me In good times and even bad times Whether rainy, grey sky or the sunshine Life was so much simpler, I didn't realise it then But time has definitely made me a wiser man [Chorus 2x: Erinn Anova] The world keeps turning round And time just keeps on moving Sunday morning in the church just singing a song Mama gave much praise cause her soul was strong When I was young I used to do lots of thangs was wrong I never thought about till one day she was gone Now my daddy passed on about a year before Reminiscing as I glance at the fishing pole But these things gotta happen so we all can grow And now they spirits much freer than they was befo' So fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on Cause there's angels in the midst And they're guiding and watching me every day And even though at times I let it get to me Just a little and I go astray We keep marching on and on Young militants will watch and now we're growing With kids of their own, as it all unfolds As the world keeps turning on, the world keeps turning on [Chorus 4x] This one goes out to family, y'all come first G-A-B, Chief Xcel, Blackalicious, out

Thank You

CHRISTINA MILIAN "Christina Milian"
Once upon a time I walked an easy road Didn't think I needed anyone. I could make it on my own Never thought about tomorrow, just livin' day to day Never thought these clouds would come along And bring me so much pain When my world was upside down I didn't think that I could make it, Reached out my hand for you And you were there to take it [Chorus] I wanna thank you For being my strength when I thought I couldn't go on And I wanna thank you be, 'til I get over you [Verse 2] Walked through the park, in the evening air I heard a voice and I thought you were there I run away but I just can't escape Memories of you everywhere They say that time will dry the tears But true love burns for a thousand years Give my tomorrows for one yesterday Just to know that I could have you here [Bridge] When will this river of tears stop fallin' Where can I run so I won't feel alone Can't walk away when the pain keeps callin' I've just gotta take it from here on my own But it's so hard to let go
