Tom Waits-Jack and Neal



Jack was sittin' poker faced with bullets backed with bitches
Neal hunched at the wheel, puttin' everyone in stitches
Braggin' 'bout some nurse he screwed while drivin' through Nebraska
And when she came she† honked the horn
and Neal just barely missed a truck
And then he asked her if she'd like that the Californy
You see, a red head in a uniform will always get you horny
Yeah, and with her hairnet and those white shoes and name tag and a hat
She drove like Andy Granatelli and knew how to fix a flat
And Jack was almost at the bottom of his MD2020
Neal was yellin' out the window, tryin' to buy some bennies
From a Lincoln full of Mexicans, and the left rear tire blowed
And the sons of bitches pretty near almost ran us off the road
And while the nurse had sppilled the Manshewitz all up and down her dress
And then she lit the map on fire, Neal just had to guess
Should we try and find a bootlerg route or a fillin' station open
The nurse was dumpin' out her purse and lookin' for an envelope
And Jack was out of cigarettyes, and as we crossed the yellow line
...........................

Dave Matthews - American Baby

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby

Nobody's laughing now
God's grace lost and the devil is proud
But I've been walking for a thousand miles
One last time, I could see you smile

I (I) hold (hold) on (on) to you
You bring me hope, I'll see you soon
And if I don't see you
I'm afraid we've lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby

I (I) hold (hold) on (on) to you
You lift me up and always will
I see you in life
Hope I don't get left behind

I (I) hold (hold) on (on) to you
You bring me hope, I'll see you soon
And if I don't see you
I'm afraid we've lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
I hope you
Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby
Nobody's laughing now
But you could always make me laugh out loud

Paul Revere & The Raiders - Indian Reservation


They took the whole Cherokee Nation
And put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife

They took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

They took the whole Indian Nation
And locked us on this reservation
And though I wear a shirt and tie
Iím still a red man deep inside

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee Nation will return
Will return
Will return
Will return
Will return

Patti Page - Tennessee waltz

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

(Instrumental Interlude)

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Motley Crue - Home, sweet home

You know Iím a dreamer
But my heartís of gold
I had to run away high
So I wouldnít come home low

Just when things went right
It doesnít mean they were always wrong
Just take this song and youíll never feel
Left all alone

Take me to your heart
Feel me in your bones
Just one more night
And Iím cominí off this
Long & winding road

Iím on my way
Well, Iím on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight tonight
Iím on my way
Iím on my way
Home sweet home

You know that I seem
To make romantic dreams
Up in lights, falliní off
The silver screen

My heartís like an open book
For the whole world to read
Somtimes nothing--keeps me together
At the seams

Iím on my way
Well, Iím on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight tonight
Iím on my way
Just set me free
Home sweet home
