Lady with a Fan Let my inspiration flow In token rhyme suggesting rhythm That will not forsake me Till my tale is told and done While the firelights aglow Strange shadows from the flames will grow Till things weve never seen Will seem familiar Shadows of a sailor forming Winds both foul and fair all swarm Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady Many years ago Here beside him stands a man A soldier from the looks of him Who came through many fights But lost at love While the storyteller speaks A door within the fire creaks Suddenly flies open And a girl is standing there Eyes alight with glowing hair All that fancy paints as fair She takes her fan and throws it In the lions den Which of you to gain me, tell Will risk uncertain pains of hell? I will not forgive you If you will not take the chance The sailor gave at least a try The soldier being much too wise Strategy was his strength And not disaster The sailor coming out again The lady fairly leapt at him Thats how it stands today You decide if he was wise The storyteller makes no choice Soon you will not hear his voice His job is to shed light And not to master Since the end is never told We pay the teller off in gold In hopes he will come back But he cannot be bought or sold Terrapin Station Inspiration move me brightly Light the song with sense and color Hold away despair More than this I will not ask Faced with mysteries dark and vast Statements just seem vain at last Some rise, some fall, some climb To get to Terrapin Counting stars by candlelight All are dim but one is bright: The spiral light of Venus Rising first and shining best From the northwest corner Of a brand-new crescent moon Crickets and cicadas sing A rare and different tune Terrapin Station In the shadow of the moon Terrapin Station And I know well be there soon Terrapin - I cant figure out Terrapin - if its the end or beginning Terrapin - but the trains put its brakes on And the whistle is screaming: Terrapin At a Siding While you were gone These faces filled with darkness The obvious was hidden With nothing to believe in The compass always points to Terrapin Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain Youre back in Terrapin for good or ill again For good or ill again
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung Would you hear my voice come through the music? Would you hold it near as it were your own? Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken Perhaps theyre better left unsung I dont know, dont really care Let there be songs to fill the air Ripple in still water When there is no pebble tossed Nor wind to blow Reach out your hand, if your cup be empty If your cup is full, may it be again Let it be known there is a fountain That was not made by the hands of men There is a road, no simple highway Between the dawn and the dark of night And if you go, no one may follow That path is for your steps alone Ripple in still water When there is no pebble tossed Nor wind to blow You who choose to lead must follow But if you fall you fall alone If you should stand then whos to guide you? If I knew the way I would take you home
As I was walking round Grosvenor Square Not a chill to the winter But a nip to the air From the other direction She was calling my eye It could be an illusion But I might as well try Might as well try She had rings on her fingers and Bells on her shoes And I knew without asking she was Into the blues She wore scarlet begonias Tucked into her curls I knew right away She was not like other girls Other girls In the thick of the evening When the dealing got rough She was too pat to open And too cool to bluff As I picked up my matches and Was closing the door I had one of those flashes: Id been there before Been there before I aint often right But Ive never been wrong It seldom turns out the way It does in the song Once in a while You get shown the light In the strangest of places If you look at it right Well, there aint nothing wrong With the way she moves Or scarlet begonias or a Touch of the blues And theres nothing wrong with The look thats in her eye I had to learn the hard way To let her pass by Let her pass by The wind in the willows played tea for two The sky was yellow and the sun was blue Strangers stopping strangers Just to shake their hand Everybodys playing In the Heart of Gold Band Heart of Gold Band

Look out of any window Any morning, any evening, any day Maybe the sun is shining Birds are winging or rain is falling from a heavy sky What do you want me to do To do for you to see you through? For this is all a dream we dreamed One afternoon, long ago Walk out of any doorway Feel your way, feel your way like the day before Maybe youll find direction Around some corner where its been waiting to meet you What do you want me to do To watch for you while you are sleeping? Then please dont be surprised When you find me dreaming, too Look into any eyes you find by you You can see clear through to another day Maybe its been seen before through other eyes On other days while going home What do you want me to do To do for you, to see you through?

Saint Stephen with a rose In and out of the garden he goes Country garland in the wind and the rain Wherever he goes, the people all complain Stephen prospered in his time Well he may and he may decline Did it matter? Does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how Wishing well with a golden bell Bucket hanging clear to Hell Hell halfway twixt now and then Stephen fill it up and lower down And lower down again Ladyfinger dipped in moonlight Writing What for? across the morning sky Sunlight splatters dawn with answers Darkness shrugs and bids the day good-bye Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned Several seasons with their treasons Wrap the babe in scarlet covers, call it your own Did he doubt or did he try? Answers aplenty in the bye and bye Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills One man gathers what another man spills Saint Stephen will remain All hes lost he shall regain Seashore washed by the suds and foam Been here so long hes got to calling it home Fortune comes a-crawling, Calliope woman Spinning that curious sense of your own Can you answer? Yes I can But what would be the answer to the answer man?
Please dont dominate the rap, Jack If youve got nothing new to say If you please, dont back up the track This trains got to run today I spent a little time on the mountain I spent a little time on the hill Heard some say: Better run away Others say: You better stand still Now I dont know but I been told Its hard to run with the weight of gold Other hand I have heard it said Its just as hard with the weight of lead Who can deny? Who can deny? Its not just a change in style One step done and another begun And I wonder how many miles? Spent a little time on the mountain Spent a little time on the hill Things went down we dont understand But I think in time we will Do we keep on coming or stand and wait With the sun so dark and the hour so late?

Through The transitive nightfall Of diamonds
Right outside this lazy summer home You aint got time to call your soul a critic no Right outside the lazy gate of winters summer home Wondering where the nuthatch winters Wings a mile long just carried the bird away Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own There comes a redeemer And he slowly too fades away There follows a wagon behind him Thats loaded with clay And the seeds that were silent All burst into bloom and decay And night comes so quiet, its close on the heels of the day Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own Sometimes we live no particular way but our own And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

Look for a while at the china cat sunflower Proud walking jingle in the midnight sun Copperdome bodhi drip a silver kimono Like a crazy quilt stargown through a dream night wind Krazy Kat peeking through a lace bandanna Like a one-eyed cheshire, like a diamond-eye jack A leaf of all colors plays a golden-string fiddle To a double-e waterfall over my back Comic book colors on a violin river crying leonardo Words from out a silk trombone I rang a silent bell, beneath a shower of pearls In the eagle-winged palace of the Queen Chinee

Winter rain, now tell me why Summers fade, and roses die The answer came The wind and rain Golden hills, now veiled in gray Summer leaves have blown away Now what remains? The wind and rain And like a desert spring My lover comes and spreads her wings Like a song thats born to soar the sky Flowing till the waters all are dry The loving in her eyes Circle songs and sands of time And seasons will end in tumbled rhyme And little change The wind and rain And like a desert spring My lover comes and spreads her wings Like a song thats born to soar the sky Flowing till the rivers all are dry The loving in her eyes Gonna happen every time Well see summer by and by Summers fade and roses die Like a song thats born to soar the sky Morning comes, she follows the path to the river shore Lightly sung, her song is the latch on the mornings door See the sun sparkle in the reeds, silver beads, pass into the sea She comes from a town where they call her the woodcutters daughter Shes brown as the bank where she kneels down to gather her water And she bears it away with a love that the river has taught her Let it flow, greatly grow, wide and clear! Round and round, the cut of the plow in the furrowed field Seasons round, the bushels of corn and the barley meal Broken ground, open and beckoning to the spring Black dirt live again! The plowman is broad as the back of the land he is sowing As he dances the circular track of the plow ever knowing That the work of his day measures more than the planting and growing Let it grow, let it grow, greatly yield! What shall we say, shall we call it by a name? As well to count the angels dancing on a pin Water bright as the sky from which it came And the name is on the earth that takes it in We will not speak but stand inside the rain And listen to the thunder shout I am! I am! I am! I am! So it goes, we make what we make since the world began Nothing more, the love of the women, the work of men Seasons round, creatures great and small Up and down as we rise and fall What shall we say, shall we call it by a name? As well to count the angels dancing on a pin Water bright as the sky from which it came And the name is on the earth that takes it in We will not speak but stand inside the rain And listen to the thunder shout I am! I am! I am! I am!

Cherise was brushing her long hair gently down It was the afternoon of carnival As she brushes it gently down Reuben was strumming his painted mandolin It was inlaid with a pretty face in jade Played the carnival parade Cherise was dressing as Pirouette in white When a fatal vision gripped her tight Cherise beware tonight Reuben, Reuben, tell me truly true I feel afraid and I dont know why I do Is there another girl for you? If you could see my heart, you would know its true Theres none Cherise, except for you, except for you Id swear to it on my very soul If I lie, may I fall down cold Reuben was strumming his painted mandolin The breeze would pause to listen in Before going on its way again Masquerade began when nightfall finally woke Like waves against the bandstand, dancers broke To the painted mandolin Looking out on the crowd, who is standing there Sweet Ruby Claire at Reuben stared, at Reuben stared She was dressed as Pirouette in red And her hair hung gently down The crowd pressed round, Ruby stood as though alone Reubens song took on a different tone And he played it just for her The song that he played was the carnival parade Each note cut a thread of Cherises fate It cut through like a blade Reuben was strumming his painted mandolin When Ruby froze and turned to stone For the strings played all alone The voice of Cherise from the face of the mandolin Singing Reuben, Reuben tell me true For I have no one but you If you could see my heart, you would know its true Theres none Cherise, except for you, except for you Id swear to it on my very soul If I lie, may I fall down cold The truth of love an unsung song must tell The course of love must follow blind Without a look behind Reuben walked the streets of New Orleans til dawn Cherise so lightly in his arms And her hair hung gently down

Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm That will not forsake you, till my tale is told and done While the firelights aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow Till things weve never seen will seem familiar Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady many years ago Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him Who came through many fights, but lost at love While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks; Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair She takes her fan and throws it, in the lions den Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell? I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise Strategy was his strength, and not disaster The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him Thats how it stands today. You decide if he was wise The story teller makes no choice. Soon you will not hear his voice His job is to shed light, and not to master Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold In hopes he will return, but he cannot be bought or sold Terrapin Station Inspiration, move me brightly. Light the song with sense and color; Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright; The spiral light of Venus, rising first and shining best On, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon While crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune Terrapin Station In the shadow of the moon, Terrapin Station And I know well get there soon, Terrapin Station I cant figure out, Terrapin, if its the end or beginning, Terrapin But the trains put its brakes on, Terrapin And the whistle is screaming, TERRAPIN Terrapin Station - At the Siding While you were gone, these faces filled with darkness The obvious was hidden. With nothing to believe in The compass always points to Terrapin Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain Youre back in Terrapin for good or ill again, for good or ill again
We can share the women, we can share the wine We can share what we got of yours cause we done shared all of mine Keep on rollin, just a mile to go; Keep on rollin my old buddy, youre movin much too slow I just jumped the watchman, right outside the fence Took his rings, four bucks in change, aint that Heaven sent? Hurts my ears to listen, Shannon, burns my eyes to see; Cut down a man in cold blood, Shannon, might as wellve been me We used to play for silver, now we play for life; And ones for sport and ones for blood at the point of a knife And now the die is shaken, now the die must fall There aint a winner in the game, he dont go home with all Not with all Leavin Texas, fourth day of July Sun so hot, the clouds so low, the eagles filled the sky Catch the Detroit Lightning out of Santa Fe The Great Northern out of Cheyenne, from sea to shining sea Gotta go to Tulsa, first train we can ride Gotta settle one old score, one small point of pride There aint a place a man can hide, Shannon, will keep him from the sun Aint a bed can give us rest now, you keep us on the run Jack Straw from Wichita Cut his buddy down Dug for him a shallow grave And laid his body down Half a mile from Tucson By the morning light One man gone and another to go My old buddy, youre moving much Too slow We can share the women, we can share the wine

The other day they waited, the sky was dark and faded Solemnly they stated, He has to die, you know he has to die. All the children learnin, from books that they were burnin Every leaf was turnin; to watch him die, you know he has to die The summer sun looked down on him, his mother could but frown on him And all the others sound on him, but it doesnt seem to matter And when the day had ended, with rainbow colors blended His mind remained unbended, he had to die, you know he had to die Spanish lady comes to me, she lays on me this rose It rainbow spirals round and round it trembles and explodes It left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away But the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day Comin, comin, comin around, comin, around Comin, around, in a circle Comin, comin, comin around, comin around, in a circle Comin, comin, comin around, comin in a circle Skippin through the lily fields I came across an empty space It trembled and exploded, left a bus stop in its place The bus came by and I got on, thats when it all began There was cowboy Neal at the wheel of the bus to never ever land Comin, comin, comin around, comin, around Comin, around, in a circle Comin, comin, comin around, comin around, in a circle Comin, comin, comin around, comin in a circle And when the day had ended, with rainbow colors blended Their minds remained unbended He had to die, Oh, you know he had to die

Let my inspiration flow In token lines suggesting rhythm That will not forsake me Til my tale is told and done While the firelight’s aglow Strange shadows from the flames will grow Til things weve never seen Will seem familiar Shadows of a sailor forming Winds both foul and fair all swarm Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady Many years ago Here beside him stands a man A soldier from the looks of him Who came through many fights But lost at love While the storyteller speaks A door within the fire creaks Suddenly flies open And a girl is standing there Eyes alight with glowing hair All that fancy paints as fair She takes her fan and throws it In the lion’s den Which of you to gain me, tell Will risk uncertain pains of hell? I will not forgive you If you will not take the chance The sailor gave at least a try The soldier being much too wise Strategy was his strength And not disaster The sailor coming out again The lady fairly leapt at him Thats how it stands today You decide if he was wise The storyteller makes no choice Soon you will not hear his voice His job is to shed light And not to master Since the end is never told We pay the teller off in gold In hopes he will come back But he cannot be bought or sold
Blue light rain, whoa Unbroken chain Looking for familiar faces In an empty window pane Listening for the secret Searching for the sound But I could only hear the preacher and the baying of his hounds Willow sky, whoa I walk and wonder why They say love your brother But you will catch it when you try Roll you down the line, boy Drop you for a loss Ride you out on a cold railroad And nail you to a cross November and more As I wait for the score Theyre telling me forgiveness is the key to every door A slow winter day, a night like forever Sink like a stone, float like a feather Lilac rain, unbroken chain Song of the sawhet owl Out on the mountain, itll drive you insane Listening to the winds howl Unbroken chain of sorrow and pearls Unbroken chain of shy and sea Unbroken chain of the western wind Unbroken chain of you and me

Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free Dizzy with eternity Paint it with a skin of sky Brush in some clouds and sea Call it home for you and me A peaceful place or so it looks from space A closer look reveals the human race Full of hope, full of grace Is the human face But afraid we may lay our home to waste Theres a fear down here we cant forget Hasnt got a name just yet Always awake, always around Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Now watch as the ball revolves And the nighttime falls Again the hunt begins Again the bloodwind calls By and by, the morning sun will rise But the darkness never goes From some mens eyes It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets Staking turf, dividing up meat Nightmare spook, piece of heat Its you and me You and me Click flash blade in ghetto night Rudies looking for a fight Rat cat alley, roll them bones Need that cash to feed that jones And the politicians throwin stones Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Commissars and pin-stripe bosses Roll the dice Any way they fall Guess who gets to pay the price? Money green or proletarian gray Selling guns stead of food today So the kids they dance And shake their bones And the politicians throwin stones Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Heartless powers try to tell us What to think If the spirits sleeping Then the flesh is ink Historys page will thus be carved in stone And we are here, and we are on our own On our own On our own On our own If the game is lost Then were all the same No one left to place or take the blame We can leave this place and empty stone Or that shinin ball we used to call our home So the kids they dance And shake their bones And the politicians throwin stones Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Shipping powders back and forth Singing Black goes south and white comes north In a whole world full of petty wars Singing I got mine and you got yours And the current fashion sets the pace Lose your step, fall out of grace And the radical, he rant and rage Singing someones got to turn the page And the rich man in his summer home Singing just leave well enough alone But his pants are down, his covers blown... And the politicians throwin stones So the kids they dance And shake their bones And its all too clear were on our own Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Picture a bright blue ball Just spinnin, spinnin, free Dizzy with the possibilities Ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down Ashes, ashes, all fall down

There were days And there were days And there were days between Summer flies and August dies The world grows dark and mean Comes the shimmer of the moon On black infested trees The singing man is at his song The holy on their knees The reckless are out wrecking The timid plead their pleas No one knows much more of this Than anyone can see anyone can see There were days And there were days And there were days besides When phantom ships with phantom sails Set to sea on phantom tides Comes the lightning of the sun On bright unfocused eyes The blue of yet another day A springtime wet with sighs A hopeful candle lingers In the land of lullabies Where headless horsemen vanish With wild and lonely cries lonely cries There were days And there were days And there were days I know When all we ever wanted Was to learn and love and grow Once we grew into our shoes We told them where to go Walked halfway around the world On promise of the glow Stood upon a mountain top Walked barefoot in the snow Gave the best we had to give How much well never know well never know There were days And there were days And there were days between Polished like a golden bowl The finest ever seen Hearts of Summer held in trust Still tender, young and green Left on shelves collecting dust Not knowing what they mean Valentines of flesh and blood As soft as velveteen Hoping love would not forsake The days that lie between lie between

When the last rose of summer pricks my finger And the hot sun chills me to the bone When I cant hear the song for the singer And I cant tell my pillow from a stone I will walk alone by the black muddy river And sing me a song of my own I will walk alone by the black muddy river And sing me a song of my own When the last bolt of sunshine hits the mountain And the stars start to splatter in the sky When the moon splits the southwest horizon With the scream of an eagle on the fly I will walk alone by the black muddy river And listen to the ripples as they moan I will walk alone by the black muddy river And sing me a song of my own Black muddy river Roll on forever I dont care how deep or wide If you got another side Roll muddy river, roll muddy river Black muddy river roll Black muddy river Roll on forever I dont care how deep or wide If you got another side Roll muddy river, roll muddy river Black muddy river roll When it seems like the night will last forever And theres nothing left to do but count the years When the strings of my heart start to sever And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears I will walk alone by the black muddy river And dream me a dream of my own I will walk alone by the black muddy river And sing me a song of my own And sing me a song of my own
Annie laid her head down in the roses She had ribbons, ribbons, ribbons In her long brown hair I dont know, it must have been the roses All I know is I could not leave her there I dont know, it must have been the roses The roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair I dont know, maybe it was the roses All I know was I could not leave her there Ten years the waves rolled the Ships home from the sea Thinking well how it may blow In all good company If I tell another what Your own lips told to me Let me lay neath the roses Let my eyes no longer see I dont know, it must have been the roses The roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair I dont know, maybe it was the roses All I know was I could not leave her there One pane of glass in the window No one is complaining though Come in and shut the door Faded is the crimson from the Ribbons that she wore And its strange how no one Comes round anymore I dont know, it must have been the roses The roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair I dont know, maybe it was the roses All I know was I could not leave her there Annie laid her head down in the roses She had ribbons, ribbons, ribbons In her long brown hair I dont know, it must have been the roses All I know is I could not leave her there I dont know, it must have been the roses The roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair I dont know, maybe it was the roses All I know was I could not leave her there
Comes a time when the blind-man takes your hand, says Dont you see? Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe. Dont give it up, you got an empty cup only love can fill Only love can fill Been walking all morning went walking all night I cant see much difference between the dark and light And I feel the wind And I taste the rain Never in my mind to cause so much pain Comes a time when the blind-man takes your hand, says Dont you see? Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe. Dont give it up, you got an empty cup only love can fill Only love can fill From day to day just letting it ride You get so far away from how it feels inside You cant let go cause youre afraid to fall But the day may come when you cant feel at all The words come out like an angry stream You hear yourself say things you could never mean When you cool down you find your mind You got a lot of words youve got to stand behind Comes a time when the blind-man takes your hand, says Dont you see? Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe. Dont give it up, you got an empty cup only love can fill Only love can fill, only love can fill, only love can fill

Mama said, Dont go near that river Dont be hanging around old Catfish John Come the morning, Id always be there Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn Take me back to another morning, to a time so long ago Where the sweet magnolia blossomed, cotton fields are white as snow Catfish John was a river hobo who lived and died by the rivers bed Looking back, I still remember, I was proud to be his friend Mama said, Dont go near that river Dont be hanging around old Catfish John Come the morning, Id always be there Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg, traded for a chestnut mare Lord, he never spoke in anger, though his load was hard to bear Mama said, Dont go near that river Dont be hanging around old Catfish John Come the morning, Id always be there Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn Mama said, Dont go near that river Dont be hanging around old Catfish John Come the morning, Id always be there Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn That sounds cool
Thought I heard a blackbird singin Up on Bluebird Hill Call me a whinin boy if you will Born where the sun dont shine And I dont deny my name Got no place to go, aint that a shame? Thought I heard that KC whistle Moanin sweet & low Thought I heard that KC when she blow Down where the sun dont shine Underneath the Kokomo Whinin boy -- got no place else to go So many roads I tell you So many roads I know So many roads -- So many roads -- Mountain high, river wide So many roads to ride So many roads So many roads Thought I heard a jug band playin If you dont -- who else will? From over on the far side of the hill All I know the sun dont shine The rain refuse to fall And you dont seem to hear me when I call Wind inside & the wind outside Tangled in the window blind Tell me why you treat me so unkind Down where the sun dont shine Lonely and I call your name No place left to go, aint that a shame? So many roads I tell you New York to San Francisco All I want is one To take me home From the high road to the low So many roads I know So many roads - So many roads From the land of the midnight sun Where ice blue roses grow long those roads of gold and silver snow Howlin wide or moanin low So many roads I know So many roads to ease my soul
Theres mosquitoes on the river Fish are rising up like birds Its been hot for seven weeks now Too hot to even speak now Did you hear what I just heard? Say it might have been a fiddle or it could have been the wind But there seems to be a beat now I can feel it my feet now Listen here it comes again! Theres a band out on the highway Theyre high stepping into town Its a rainbow full of sound Its fireworks, calliopes and clowns Everybodys dancing Come on children, come on children Come on clap your hands Sun went down in honey And the moon came up in wine You know stars were spinning dizzy, Lord The band kept us too busy we forgot about the time Theyre a band beyond description Like Jehovahs favorite choir People joining hand in hand While the music played the band, Lord Theyre setting us on fire Crazy rooster crowing midnight Balls of lighting roll along Old men sing about their dreams Women laugh and children scream And the band keeps playing on Keep on dancing thru the daylight Greet the morning air with song No ones noticed, but the bands all packed and gone Was it ever there at all? But they kept on dancing Come on children, come on children Come on clap your hands Well the cool breeze came on Tuesday And the corns a bumper crop And the fields are full of dancing Full of singing and romancing The music never stopped
Wake of the flood, laughing water, forty-nine Get out the pans, dont just stand there dreaming Get out the way, get out the way Here comes sunshine Here comes sunshine Line up a long shot Maybe try it two times, maybe more Good to know you got shoes to wear when you find the floor Why hold out for more? Here comes sunshine Here comes sunshine Asking you nice, now Keep the mother rolling one more time Been down before but you just dont have to go no more, no more Here comes sunshine Here comes sunshine
