FOREWORD

 

This is an eighth volume of lyrics to popular songs, to assist learning to play the guitar by ear, as described in the article, How to Play the Guitar by Ear (for Mathematicians and Physicists), posted at Internet web sites http://www.foundation.bw and http://www.foundationwebsite.org .  As discussed in the foreword to Volume 1, the purpose of assembling these lyrics is to provide the student with a large number of songs from which he may choose ones for which he knows the melody and enjoys singing.  Since everyone’s taste is different, and the student may not be familiar with the songs that I know (many from decades ago), it is the intention to provide a large number of popular songs from which the student may choose.  I believe that learning the guitar is facilitated by practicing a number of different songs in a practice session, and playing each one only a couple of times, perhaps in a couple of different keys.  In order to do this, it is important to have a large collection of lyrics available.  This volume is a miscellaneous collection of songs, mainly older popular songs from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

 

As in Volume I, I have deliberately omitted noting the chords to be played on each song, if it is my opinion that the beginning student should be able to figure them out easily – e.g., chords are omitted for most two-chord or three-chord songs.  The purpose of this omission is to provide the student with the opportunity of learning to determine which chord to use at each point of the song, quickly and automatically.  For more difficult songs, I indicate some of the chords, and for some songs, I provide chords for the entire song.  Where I indicate only a few chords, it is important to remember, as noted on the cover, that it is assumed that all songs are sung in the key of A, unless otherwise indicated.  (There are a few songs for which the chords are relatively easy, but I have indicated them nevertheless.  These are songs that I was to sing in public for some occasion, and I did not wish to make a mistake.)

 

In some cases, I have found songs already chorded, but in a fashion that is not convenient for the guitar (e.g., in the key of Bflat, or with many exotic chords).  In most cases, I have removed the chords or re-chorded them.  In some cases, however, I have left the songs in “strange” keys or chordings, to be modified as an exercise by the student.

 

Many of the songs of this volume are copyrighted by others.  In their original or available forms, however, they are not helpful for the beginning student of guitar (e.g., they are arranged for piano, or are written in a key that is not natural for the guitar, or are fully annotated with chords, or are in small print).  To facilitate reading by the student as he plays the guitar, they are presented here in a large, easy-to-read font and with a strong attempt to keep the song to a single page in length.  To facilitate his progress in learning to play by ear, the chords have been removed in all simple cases.  It is for these reasons that I have, in cognizance of and in the spirit of the “fair use” doctrine of copyright law, reformatted these songs and presented them in the present volume.

 

Good luck!

DREAMED A (C) DREAM BY THE OLD (G) CANAL

DIRTY OLD TOWN, DIRTY OLD TOWN.

 

I HEARD A SIREN FROM THE DOCKS

SAW A TRAIN SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE

SMELLED SPRING IN THE SMOKY WIND

DIRTY OLD TOWN, DIRTY OLD TOWN.

 

I'M GOING TO MAKE ME A BIG SHARP AXE

SHINING STEEL TEMPERED IN THE FIRE

AND WE'LL CHOP YOU DOWN LIKE AN OLD DEAD TREE

DIRTY OLD TOWN, DIRTY OLD TOWN. (REPEAT FIRST VERSE)

The musical form of Greensleeves is called a romanesca.  The song was supposedly written by King Henry VIII for Anne Boleyn, whom he tried to seduce.  Lady Greensleeves was a prostitute; green sleeves were worn by prostitutes as a sign of their profession.

The Christmas carol What Child Is This? uses the same melody as Greensleeves.

JUNK FOOD JUNKIE

WORDS AND MUSIC BY LARRY GROCE

 

YOU KNOW I LOVE THAT ORGANIC COOKING
I ALWAYS ASK FOR MORE
AND THEY CALL ME MR NATURAL
ON DOWN TO THE HEALTH FOOD STORE
I ONLY EAT GOOD SEA SALT
WHITE SUGAR DON'T TOUCH MY LIPS
AND MY FRIENDS IS ALWAYS BEGGING ME
TO TAKE THEM ON MACROBIOTIC TRIPS

OH, BUT AT NIGHT I STAKE OUT MY STRONG BOX

THEN I PULL OUT A HOSTESS TWINKIE
AND I POP IT IN MY MOUTH

YEAH, IN THE DAYTIME I'M MR NATURAL
JUST AS HEALTHY AS I CAN BE
BUT AT NIGHT I'M A JUNK FOOD JUNKIE
GOOD LORD HAVE PITY ON ME

WELL, AT LUNCHTIME YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND ME
AT THE WHOLE EARTH VITAMIN BAR
JUST SUCKING ON MY PLAIN WHITE YOGURT
FROM MY HAND THROWN POTTERY JAR
AND SIPPIN' A LITTLE HAND PRESSED CIDER
WITH A CARROT STICK FOR DESSERT
AND WIPING MY FACE IN A NATURAL WAY
ON THE SLEEVE OF MY PEASANT SHIRT
OH, YEAH

AH, BUT WHEN THAT CLOCK STRIKES MIDNIGHT
AND I'M ALL BY MYSELF
I WORK THAT COMBINATION ON MY SECRET HIDEAWAY SHELF
AND I PULL OUT SOME FRITOS CORN CHIPS
DR PEPPER AND AN OLE MOON PIE
THEN I SIT BACK IN GLORIOUS EXPECTATION
OF A GENUINE JUNK FOOD HIGH

OH YEAH, IN THE DAYTIME I'M MR NATURAL
JUST AS HEALTHY AS I CAN BE
OH, BUT AT NIGHT I'M A JUNK FOOD JUNKIE

BUT I GIVE 'EM ALL SOMETHING TO EAT
I'M A FRIEND TO OLD EUELL GIBBONS
AND I ONLY EAT HOME GROWN SPICE
I GOT A JOHN KEATS AUTOGRAPHED GRECIAN URN
FILLED UP WITH MY BROWN RICE
YES, I DO

OH, FOLKS BUT LATELY I HAE BEEN SPOTTED
WITH A BIG MAC ON MY BREATH
STUMBLING INTO A COLONEL SANDERS
WITH A FACE AS WHITE AS DEATH
I'M AFTRAID SOMEDAY THEY'LL FIND ME
JUST STRETCHED OUT ON MY BED
WITH A HANDFUL OF PRINGLES POTATO CHIPS
AND A DING DONG BY MY HEAD

IN THE DAYTIME I'M MR NATURAL
JUST AS HEALTHY AS I CAN BE
BUT AT NIGHT I'M A JUNK FOOD JUNKIE
GOOD LORD HAVE PITY ON ME

EVERY SOLDIER KNOWS SHE’S KEPT HER (A) PROMISE

AND (B7) SHE HAS BEEN FAITHFUL TO HER LOVE

(E) UNDERNEATH THE LAMPPOST (B7) BY THE BARRACK GATE

STANDING ALL ALONE EVERY NIGHT YOU’LL SEE HER (E) WAIT

DARLING I REMEMBER THE WAY YOU USED TO (C) WAIT (C7)

I'D HOLD YOU TIGHT, WE'D KISS GOODNIGHT

MY LILLI OF THE LAMPLIGHT, MY OWN LILLI MARLENE

 

ORDERS CAME FOR SAILING SOMEWHERE OVER THERE

ALL CONFINED TO BARRACKS WAS MORE THAN I COULD BEAR

I KNEW YOU WERE WAITING IN THE STREET

I HEARD YOUR FEET, BUT COULD NOT MEET

MY LILLI OF THE LAMPLIGHT, MY OWN LILLI MARLENE

 

RESTING IN A BILLET JUST BEHIND THE LINE

EVEN THO' WE'RE PARTED YOUR LIPS ARE CLOSE TO MINE

YOU WAIT WHERE THAT LANTERN SOFTLY GLEAMS

YOUR SWEET FACE SEEMS TO HAUNT MY DREAMS

MY LILLI OF THE LAMPLIGHT, MY OWN LILLI MARLENE

LA PALOMA

JULIO IGLESIAS

 

UNA CANCIÓN ME RECUERDA AQUEL AYER

CUANDO SE MARCHÓ EN SILENCIO UN ATARDECER

SE FUÉ CON SU CANTO TRISTE A OTRO LUGAR

DEJÓ COMO COMPAÑERA MI SOLEDAD.

 

UNA PALOMA BLANCA ME CANTA AL ALBA

VIEJAS MELANCOLÍAS, COSAS DEL ALMA

LLEGAN CON EL SILENCIO DE LA MAÑANA

Y CUANDO SALGO A VERLA VUELA A SU CASA.

 

¿DÓNDE VA? QUE MI VOZ

YA NO QUIERE ESCUCHAR,

¿DÓNDE VA? QUE MI VIDA SE APAGA

SI JUNTO A MI NO ESTÁ.

 

SI QUISIERA VOLVER

YO LA IRÍA A ESPERAR

CADA DÍA, CADA MADRUGADA

PARA QUERERLA MÁS.

OH, CAROL

SMOKIE (1978)

NICKY CHINN AND MIKE CHAPMAN

 

(E) I was out cruisin’, getting’ late and I was losin’

When I saw you walkin’ my (B7) way

So nonchalant, I bet you get what you want

BUT So do I and I ain’t losin’ to(E)day

Well, your hips were swingin’ and your jeans were clingin’

You were drivin’ me outta my (B7) mind

On a hot afternoon, when there’s nothing to do

You’re not the sort of thing a fellow should (E) find

 

So I pulled on over, TOSSED your hair off your shoulder

As you turned and you looked my way

OH, YOU WOULD’VE DIED, OR you’da skinned me alive

If I’da said what I wanted to say

So bein’ polite, said “whatcha doin’ tonight”

Y’ said “it just so happens I’m free”

You got all the right curves and all the right words

And that’s all right by me

 

(CHORUS) (A) Oh, Carol, you got me eatin’ my heart a(E)way

You got me countin’ my nights and (B7) days

Oh I’m floatin’ on the Milky (E) Way

Oh, (A) Carol, nobody’s done it be(E)fore

Oh, Baby you’ve opened the (B7) door

Oh, Carol you can do it some (E) more

 

Well, IF YOU’RE READY FOR THIS, when we started to kiss

She said, “Well, hold on a minute or two”

Well, naturally, I knew it couldn’t be me

I said, “Baby what’s troublin’ you”

She said, “I’m not sixteen, if you know what I mean”

So we sat and we talked for a while

AND When we finally kissed, you know she didn’t resist

And I must say she did it in style (CHORUS)

ON A BATTLEFIELD ONE DAY IN A (C) LAND SO FAR AWAY

MID THE (D) RATTLE OF MACHINE GUNS IN THE DAWN'S FIRST GOLDEN (G) LIGHT

TWENTY MEN LAY CLOSE TO DEATH, NINETEEN (C) OF THEM HELD THEIR BREATH

WHILE ONE (D) VOLUNTEERED TO SAVE THEM, VOLUNTEERED TO GIVE HIS (G) LIFE (CHORUS)

 

NINETEEN LIVES HE MEANT TO SAVE, NOT ONE BACKWARD GLANCE HE GAVE

AS HE YELLED, FOR GOD AND COUNTRY, THROUGH AN OPEN FIELD HE RAN

BUT THE ENEMY HAD SEEN AND THEY UNDERSTOOD HIS SCHEME

AND THE FIRE FROM THEIR MACHINE GUNS KNOCKED THE RIFLE FROM HIS HANDS (CHORUS)

 

SEVEN BULLETS FOUND THEIR MARK, SEVEN BULLETS NEAR THE HEART

AND THE FORCE OF SEVEN BULLETS KNOCKED THE SOLDIER TO THE GROUND

BUT HIS PROMISE HE MUST KEEP, AND HE STAGGERED TO HIS FEET

RAN TOWARD THE FOUR MACHINE GUNS THAT PINNED THE SOLDIERS DOWN (CHORUS)

 

BULLETS FLYIN' EVERYWHERE, SMOKE AND GUNFIRE FILLED THE AIR

ONWARD RAN THE WOUNDED SOLDIER TO KEEP THE VOW HE MADE

NEARLY DEAD, BUT DEEP WITHIN, WAS THE STRENGTH TO PULL THE PIN

AS HE YELLED, I DIE FOR FREEDOM, HE THREW THE HAND GRENADE (CHORUS)

SINK THE BISMARK

JOHNNY HORTON

 

(A) IN MAY OF 1941 THE (E) WAR HAD JUST BE(A)GUN

THE (D) GERMANS HAD THE BIGGEST SHIPS, THEY (A) HAD THE BIGGEST GUNS

THE BISMARK WAS THE FASTEST SHIP THAT EVER SAILED THE SEA

ON HER DECKS WERE GUNS AS BIG AS SPEARS AND (E) SHELLS AS BIG AS (A) TREES

 

OUT OF THE COLD AND FOGGY NIGHT CAME THE BRITISH SHIP THE HOOD

AND EVERY BRITISH SEAMAN, HE KNEW AND UNDERSTOOD

THEY HAD TO SINK THE BISMARK, THE TERROR OF THE SEA

STOP THOSE GUNS AS BIG AS SPEARS AND THOSE SHELLS AS BIG AS TREES

 

(CHORUS) WE’LL FIND THAT GERMAN BATTLESHIP THAT’S (E) MAKING SUCH A (A) FUSS

WE’VE GOT TO SINK THE BISMARK ‘CAUSE THE (E) WORLD DEPENDS ON (A) US

YAH-(D)HIT THE DECK A RUNNIN’ BOYS AND (A) SPIN THOSE GUNS AROUND

FOR WHEN WE FIND THE BISMARK WE (E) GOT TO CUT HER (A) DOWN

 

THE HOOD FOUND THE BISMARK AND ON THAT FATAL DAY

THE BISMARK STARTED FIRING FIFTEEN MILES AWAY

WE’VE GOT TO SINK THE BISMARK WAS THE BATTLE SOUND

BUT WHEN THE SMOKE HAD CLEARED AWAY THE MIGHTY HOOD WENT DOWN

 

FOR SIX LONG DAYS AND WEARY NIGHTS THEY TRIED TO FIND HER TRAIL

CHURCHILL TOLD THE PEOPLE PUT EVERY SHIP ASAIL

‘CAUSE SOMEWHERE ON THAT OCEAN I KNOW SHE’S GOT TO BE

WE’VE GOT TO SINK THE BISMARK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA

 

THE FOG WAS GONE THE SEVENTH DAY AND THEY SAW THE MORNING SUN

TEN HOURS AWAY FROM HOMELAND THE BISMARK MADE HER RUN

THE ADMIRAL OF BRITISH FLEET SAID TURN THOSE BOWS AROUND

WE’VE FOUND THAT GERMAN BATTLESHIP AND WE’RE GONNA CUT HER DOWN

 

THE BRITISH GUNS WERE AIMED AND THE SHELLS WERE COMING FAST

THE FIRST SHELL HIT THE BISMARK THEY KNEW SHE COULDN’T LAST

THAT MIGHTY GERMAN BATTLESHIP IS JUST A MEMORY

SINK THE BISMARK WAS THE BATTLE CRY THAT SHOOK THE SEVEN SEAS (CHORUS)

(CHORUS) YOU LOAD SIXTEEN TONS, AND WHAT DO YOU GET

ANOTHER DAY OLDER AND DEEPER IN DEBT

SAINT PETER DON’T YOU CALL ME ‘CAUSE I CAN’T GO

I OWE MY SOUL TO THE COMPANY STORE

 

I WAS BORN ONE MORNING, WHEN THE SUN DIDN’T SHINE

I PICKED UP MY SHOVEL AND WALKED TO THE MINE

LOADED SIXTEEN TONS OF NUMBER NINE COAL

AND THE STRAW BOSS SAID, “WELL-A-BLESS MY SOUL”

 

I WAS BORN ONE MORNING, IT WAS DRIZZLING RAIN

FIGHTIN’ AND TROUBLE ARE MY MIDDLE NAME

I WAS RAISED IN A CANE BREAK BY AN OLD MAMA LION

AIN’T NO HIGH-TONED WOMAN GONNA MAKE ME WALK THE LINE

 

IF YOU SEE ME COMING BETTER STEP ASIDE

A LOT OF MEN DIDN’T AND A LOT OF MEN DIED

ONE FIST OF IRON, AND THE OTHER OF STEEL

IF THE RIGHT ONE DON’T GET YOU, THEN THE LEFT ONE WILL

NOW MA AND PAW, THEY PLANNED FOR BESS TO MARRY DEACON BROWN

AND NOT THAT TRAVELLIN' SALESMAN, WHO ALWAYS CAME AROUND

THEY MADE POOR BESSIE GO TO CHURCH, HER FACE WAS MIGHTY RED

THE DEACON TOOK ONE LOOK AT HER, AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAID (CHORUS)

 

WELL THE MORAL OF THIS STORY GIRLS, IS DON'T STAY OUT TOO LATE

UNLESS YOU TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF, OUTSIDE YOUR PAPPY'S GATE

IF MA DON'T HEAR YOU COMIN' IN, SHE WON'T LAY DOWN THE LAW

AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY, ‘CAUSE SHE WON'T SING OUT TO PAW (CHORUS)

AND YOUR EYES THREW A KISS WHEN THEY MET MINE

NOW WE OWN ALL THE STARS AND A MILLION GUITARS ARE STILL PLAYING

DARLING, YOU ARE THE SONG AND YOU'LL ALWAYS BELONG TO MY HEART

 

SOLAMENTE UNA VEZ, A ME EN LA VIDA

SOLAMENTE UNA VEZ, Y NADA MAS

UNA VEZ NADA MAS EN MI HUERTO BRILLO LA ESPERANZA

LA ESPERANZA QUE ALUMBRA EL CAMINO DE MI SOLEDAD

 

UNA VEZ NADA MAS, SE ENTREGA EL ALMA

CON LA DULCE Y TOTAL RENUNCIACION

Y CUANDO ESE MILAGRO REALIZA EL LPRODIGIO DE AMARSE

HAY CAMPANAS DE FIESTA QUE CANTAN EN EL CORAZON

 


SOLITAIRE

THE CARPENTERS

 

(stroke) (G) THERE WAS A MAN…, A LONELY MAN…

WHO (D) LOST HIS LOVE THROUGH HIS IN(G)DIFFERENCE

A HEART THAT CARED…, THAT WENT UNSHARED…

UN(D7)TIL IT DIED WITHIN HIS (C) SI(G)LENCE

 

AND SOLITAIRE'S THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN

AND (Em) EVERY ROAD THAT TAKES HIM, TAKES HIM DOWN

AND (D) BY HIMSELF IT'S EASY TO PRETEND

HE'LL NEVER (G) LOVE AGAIN

 

AND KEEPING TO HIMSELF HE PLAYS THE GAME

WITHOUT HER LOVE IT ALWAYS ENDS THE SAME

WHILE LIFE GOES ON AROUND HIM EVERYWHERE

HE'S PLAYING SOLITAIRE

 

(stroke) A LITTLE HOPE…, GOES UP IN SMOKE…

JUST HOW IT GOES, GOES WITHOUT SAYING

THERE WAS A MAN…, A LONELY MAN…

WHO WOULD COMMAND THE HAND HE'S PLAYING

 

AND SOLITAIRE'S THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN

AND EVERY ROAD THAT TAKES HIM, TAKES HIM DOWN

AND BY HIMSELF IT'S EASY TO PRETEND

HE'LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN

 

AND KEEPING TO HIMSELF HE PLAYS THE GAME

WITHOUT HER LOVE IT ALWAYS ENDS THE SAME

WHILE LIFE GOES ON AROUND HIM EVERYWHERE

HE'S PLAYING SOLITAIRE

 

AND SOLITAIRE'S THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN

AND EVERY ROAD THAT TAKES HIM, TAKES HIM DOWN

WHILE LIFE GOES ON AROUND HIM EVERYWHERE

HE'S PLAYING SOLITAIRE

THERE'S A SHIP LIES RIGGED AND READY IN THE HARBOUR

TOMORROW FOR OLD ENGLAND SHE SAILS

FAR AWAY FROM YOUR LAND OF ENDLESS SUNSHINE

TO MY LAND FULL OF RAINY SKIES AND GALES

AND I SHALL BE O N BOARD THAT SHIP TOMORROW

THO' MY HEART IS FULL OF TEARS AT THIS FAREWELL

AND THE TASTE OF WAR I KNOW SO VERY WELL

EVEN NOW I SEE THE FOREIGN FLAG A-RAISING

THERE GUNS ON FIRE AS WE SAILED INTO HELL

I HAVE NO FEAR OF DEATH IT BRINGS NO SORROW

BUT HOW BITTER WILL BE THIS LAST FAREWELL (CHORUS)

 

THOUGH DEATH AND DARKNESS GATHER ALL ABOUT ME

AND MY SHIP BE TORN APART UPON THE SEA

I SHALL SMELL AGAIN THE FRAGRANCE OF THESE ISLANDS

IN THE HEAVING WAVES THAT BROUGHT ME ONCE TO THEE

AND SHOULD I RETURN SAFE HOME AGAIN TO ENGLAND

I SHALL WATCH THE ENGLISH MIST ROLL INTO THE DELL (CHORUS)

THE (F) OLD LAMP(C)LIGHTER

OF LONG, (D7) LONG A(G7)GO

 

HIS SNOWY (F) HAIR WAS SO MUCH (C) WHITER

BE(E7)NEATH THE CANDLE (Am) GLOW (F7)

THE (F) OLD LAMP(C)LIGHTER

OF LONG, (G7) LONG A(C)GO

 

YOU'D HEAR THE PATTER OF HIS FEET

AS HE CAME TODDLING DOWN THE STREET

HIS SMILE WOULD HIDE A LONELY HEART YOU SEE

IF THERE WERE (F) SWEETHEARTS IN THE PARK

HE'D PASS A LAMP AND LEAVE IT DARK

REMEMBERING THE DAYS THAT USED TO (G7) BE

FOR HE RE(C)CALLS WHEN DREAMS WERE NEW

HE LOVED SOMEONE WHO LOVED HIM TOO

WHO WALKS WITH HIM A(G7)LONE IN (C) MEMORY

 

HE MADE THE (F) NIGHT A LITTLE (C) BRIGHTER

WHER(E7)EVER HE WOULD (Am) GO

THE (F) OLD LAMP(C)LIGHTER OF LONG, (G7) LONG A(C)GO

 

NOW IF YOU LOOK UP AT THE SKY

THE PUB WITH NO BEER

WILF CARTER

AUSTRALIAN BALLAD

 

(G) NOW IT’S LONESOME AWAY FROM YOUR (C) KINDRED AND ALL

BY THE (D) CAMPFIRE AT NIGHT, WHERE THE WILD DINGOES (G) CALL

BUT THERE’S NOTHING SO LONESOME, (C) MORBID OR DREAR

AS TO (D) STAND AT THE BAR, OF A PUB WITH NO (G) BEER

 

NOW THE PUBLICAN'S ANXIOUS FOR THE QUOTA TO COME

THERE’S A FARAWAY LOOK ON THE FACE OF THE BUM

THE MAID’S GONE ALL CRANKY AND THE COOK’S ACTING QUEER

WHAT A TERRIBLE PLACE IS A PUB WITH NO BEER

 

THEN THE STOCKMAN RIDES UP WITH HIS DRY DUSTY THROAT

HE PRESS('S) UP TO THE BAR, PULLS A WAD FROM HIS COAT

BUT THE SMILE ON HIS FACE QUICKLY TURNS TO A SNEER

AS THE BARMAN SAYS SADLY, THE PUB'S GOT NO BEER

 

THEN THE SWAGGIE COMES IN SMOTHERED IN DUST AND FLIES

HE THROWS DOWN HIS ROLL RUGS, THE SWEAT FROM HIS EYES

BUT WHEN HE IS TOLD HE SAYS WHAT'S THIS I HEAR

I DROVE FIFTY FLAMING MILES TO A PUB WITH NO BEER

 

THERE'S A DOG ON THE VERANDA, FOR HIS MASTER HE WAITS

BUT THE BOSS IS INSIDE DRINKING WINE WITH HIS MATES

HE HURRIES FOR COVER AND HE CRINGES IN FEAR

IT'S NO PLACE FOR A DOG 'ROUND A PUB WITH NO BEER

 

OLD BILLY THE BLACKSMITH, FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE

HAS GONE HOME COLD SOBER TO HIS DARLING WIFE

HE WALKS IN THE KITCHEN, SHE SAYS “YOU'RE EARLY MY DEAR”

BUT THEN HE BREAKS DOWN AND TELLS HER, “THE PUB’S GOT NO BEER”

 

SO IT’S LONESOME AWAY FROM YOUR KINDRED AND ALL

BY THE CAMPFIRE AT NIGHT, WHERE THE WILD DINGOES CALL

BUT THERE’S NOTHING SO LONESOME, MORBID OR DREAR

AS TO STAND AT THE BAR, OF A PUB WITH NO BEER

(REPEAT LAST TWO LINES)

SHE WAS A (A) NICE GIRL, A PROPER GIRL BUT (E) ONE OF THE ROVIN' (A) KIND

I (A) HEISTED OUT MY SIG-A-NALS WHICH (D) SHE SO QUICKLY KNEW

AND (E) WHEN SHE SAW MY BUNTING FLY SHE IMME-DIATELY HOVE TO-WOO-WOO (CHORUS)

 

I TOOK HER FOR SOME FISH AND CHIPS AND TREATED HER SO FINE

AND HARDLY DID I REALIZE SHE WAS THE ROVIN' KIND

I KISSED HER LIPS, I MISSED HER LIPS AND FOUND TO MY SURPRISE

SHE WAS NOTHIN' BUT A PIRATE SHIP RIGGED UP IN A DIS-GUY-EYE-ISE (CHORUS)

 

SO, COME ALL YE GOOD SAILOR MEN WHO SAIL THE WINTRY SEA

AND COME, ALL YE APPRENTICE LADS, A WARNIN' TAKE FROM ME

BEWARE OF LOFTY CLIPPER SHIPS, THEY'LL BE THE RUIN OF YOU

THE SAME OLD HURT

SONGWRITER: HANK COCHRAN, RECORDED BY BURL IVES

(A) GOT A NEW HOUSE WITH NEW LUMBER
EVEN GOT A NEW PHONE NUMBER
DID IT ALL, SINCE WE BROKE A(E)PART
GOT ACQUAINTED WITH NEW FACES
STARTED GOING TO NEW PLACES
BUT I'VE GOT THAT SAME OLD HURT IN MY (A) (high) HEART

GOT A NEW SUIT FOR NEXT SUNDAY
GOT A NEW JOB STARTING MONDAY
GOT EVERYBODY THINKING I'M HALF (E) SMART
GOT A NEW VOCABULARY
EVEN GOT A NEW CANARY
BUT I'VE GOT THAT SAME OLD HURT IN MY (A) HEART

(BRIDGE) NO (D) MATTER WHAT I CHANGE
SAME OLD HURT STAYS THE SAME
ALWAYS (A) THERE REMINDING ME THAT WE'RE A(E)PART
GOT A NEW WALLET FULL OF MONEY
GOT A NEW GIRL WHO CALLS ME 'HONEY'
BUT I'VE GOT THAT SAME OLD HURT IN MY (A) HEART
(REPEAT)

THE SHIFTING WHISPERING SANDS

BILLY VAUGHN (NARRATOR KEN NORDENE; CHORUS UNKNOWN), JIM REEVES, JOHNNY CASH

V. C. (JACK) GILBERT & MARY HADLER (1950)

 

(SPEAKING) (E) (STRUM 3 BARS, THEN START) I DISCOVERED THE VALLEY OF THE SHIFTING, WHISPERING (B7) SANDS

WHILE PROSPECTING FOR GOLD IN ONE OF OUR WESTERN STATES

I SAW THE SILENT WINDMILLS, THE CRUMBLING (E) WATER TANKS

 

THE BONES OF CATTLE AND BURROS, PICKED CLEAN BY BUZZARDS, BLEACHED BY THE DESERT SUNS

I STUMBLED OVER A CRUMBLING (B7) BUCKBOARD

NEARLY COVERED BY THE SANDS; AND STOPPING TO REST, I HEARD A TINKLING, WHISPERING SOUND

THEN SUDDENLY REALIZED THAT (E) EVEN THOUGH THE WIND WAS QUIET

 

THE (A) SAND DID NOT LIE STILL

I SEEMED TO BE SURROUND BY A (E) MYSTERY

SO HEAVY AND OPPRESSIVE I COULD SCARCELY BREATHE

FOR (F7) DAYS AND WEEKS I WANDERED AIMLESSLY IN THIS VALLEY

SEEKING (B7) ANSWERS TO THE MANY QUESTIONS

THAT RACED THROUGH MY FEVERED MIND (E)

 

WHERE WAS EVERYONE, WHY THE WHITE BONES, THE DRY WELLS

THE BARREN VALLEY WHERE PEOPLE MUST HAVE LIVED AND (B7) DIED

FINALLY I COULD GO NO FARTHER, MY FOOD AND WATER GONE

I SAT DOWN AND BURIED MY FACE IN MY (E) HANDS

 

AND RESTING THUS, I LEARNED THE SECRET

OF THE SHIFTING, WHISPERING SANDS

HOW I MANAGED TO ESCAPE FROM THE VALLEY I DO NOT (B7) KNOW

BUT NOW TO PAY MY FINAL DEBT FOR BEING SPARED

I MUST TELL YOU WHAT I LEARNED OUT ON THE DESERT

SO MANY YEARS A(E)GO

 

(SINGING) WHEN THE DAY IS AWFULLY QUIET

AND THE BREEZE SEEMS NOT TO (B7) BLOW

ONE WOULD THINK THE SAND WAS RESTING

BUT YOU'LL FIND THIS IS NOT (E) SO

 

IT IS WHISPERING, SOFTLY WHISPERING

AS IT SLOWLY MOVES A(B7)LONG

AND FOR THOSE WHO STOP AND LISTEN

IT WILL SING THIS MOURNFUL (E) SONG

 

(HIGH) OF SIDE(A)WINDERS AND THE HORNED TOADS

OF THE (E) THORNY CHAPARRAL

ENDLESS (F7) SUNNY DAYS AND MOONLIT NIGHTS

THE (B7) COYOTES’ LONELY YELL

 

OF THE (E) STARS SEEM YOU COULD TOUCH THEM

AS YOU LAY AND GAZE ON (B7) HIGH

AT THE HEAVENS WHERE WE'RE HOPING

WE'LL BE GOING WHEN WE (E) DIE

 

(SPEAKING OR SINGING) YES, IT ALWAYS WHISPERS TO ME

OF THE DAYS OF LONG A(B7)GO

WHEN THE SETTLERS AND THE MINERS

FOUGHT THE CRAFTY NAVA(E)JO

 

HOW THE CATTLE ROAMED THE VALLEY

HAPPY PEOPLE WORKED THE (B7) LAND

AND NOW EVERYTHING IS COVERED

BY THE SHIFTING, WHISPERING (E) SANDS

 

(HIGH) HOW THE (A) MINER LEFT HIS BUCKBOARDS

WENT TO (E) WORK HIS CLAIMS THAT DAY

AND THE (F7) BURROS BROKE THEIR HALTERS

WHEN THEY (B7) THOUGHT HE'D GONE TO STAY

 

WANDERED (E) FAR IN SEARCH OF WATER

ON TO OLD SIDEWINDER'S (B7) WELL

AND THERE, THEIR BONES PICKED CLEAN BY BUZZARDS

THAT WERE CIRCLING WHEN THEY (E) FELL

 

(SINGING, RAISE KEY TO G) HOW THEY (G) FOUND THE ANCIENT MINER

LYING DEAD UPON THE (D) SAND

AFTER MONTHS THEY COULD BUT WONDER

IF HE DIED BY HUMAN (G) HAND

 

SO THEY DUG HIS GRAVE AND LAID HIM

ON HIS BACK AND CROSSED HIS (D) HANDS

AND HIS SECRET STILL IS HIDDEN

BY THE SHIFTING, WHISPERING (G) SANDS

 

(HIGH) THIS IS (C) WHAT THEY WHISPERED TO ME

ON THE (G) QUIET DESERT AIR

OF THE (A7) PEOPLE AND THE CATTLE

AND THE (D) MINER LYING THERE

 

IF YOU (G) WANT TO LEARN THEIR SECRET

WANDER THROUGH THIS QUIET (D) LAND

AND I'M SURE YOU'LL HEAR THE STORY

OF THE SHIFTING, WHISPERING (G) SANDS

 

(C)                SHIFTING, (D) WHISPERING (G) SANDS

 

NOTE: FOR THE LAST FOUR VERSES, THE KEY IS RAISED 1-1/2 STEPS.  IN THE ORIGINAL BILLY VAUGN VERSION, THIS WAS FROM C TO E-FLAT.  BUT E-FLAT IS NOT AN EASY KEY FOR THE GUITAR.  USE EITHER D TO F OR E TO G (AS IS DONE ABOVE).


OZYMANDIAS

PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY (1818, IN THE 11 JANUARY ISSUE OF THE EXAMINER, IN LONDON)

 

I MET A TRAVELER FROM AN ANTIQUE LAND

WHO SAID: TWO VAST AND TRUNKLESS LEGS OF STONE

STAND IN THE DESERT.  NEAR THEM, ON THE SAND,

HALF SUNK, A SHATTERED VISAGE LIES, WHOSE FROWN,

AND WRINKLED LIP, AND SNEER OF COLD COMMAND,

TELL THAT ITS SCULPTOR WELL THOSE PASSIONS READ

WHICH YET SURVIVE, STAMPED ON THESE LIFELESS THINGS,

THE HAND THAT MOCKED THEM AND THE HEART THAT FED:

 

AND ON THE PEDESTAL THESE WORDS APPEAR:

"MY NAME IS OZYMANDIAS, KING OF KINGS:

LOOK ON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR!"

NOTHING BESIDE REMAINS.  ‘ROUND THE DECAY

OF THAT COLOSSAL WRECK, BOUNDLESS AND BARE

THE LONE AND LEVEL SANDS STRETCH FAR AWAY.

 

OZYMANDIAS

HORACE SMITH (1818, IN THE FEBRUARY 1 ISSUE OF THE EXAMINER)

 

IN EGYPT'S SANDY SILENCE, ALL ALONE,

STANDS A GIGANTIC LEG, WHICH FAR OFF THROWS

THE ONLY SHADOW THAT THE DESERT KNOWS:—

"I AM GREAT OZYMANDIAS," SAITH THE STONE,

"THE KING OF KINGS; THIS MIGHTY CITY SHOWS

"THE WONDERS OF MY HAND."— THE CITY'S GONE,—

NAUGHT BUT THE LEG REMAINING TO DISCLOSE

THE SITE OF THIS FORGOTTEN BABYLON.

 

WE WONDER,—AND SOME HUNTER MAY EXPRESS

WONDER LIKE OURS, WHEN THRO' THE WILDERNESS

WHERE LONDON STOOD, HOLDING THE WOLF IN CHASE,

HE MEETS SOME FRAGMENT HUGE, AND STOPS TO GUESS

WHAT POWERFUL BUT UNRECORDED RACE

ONCE DWELT IN THAT ANNIHILATED PLACE.

 


THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER

WORDS BY FRANCIS SCOTT KEY, MUSIC BY JOHN STAFFORD SMITH

 

(C) O SAY CAN YOU SEE BY THE (Dm) DAWN'S EAR(D7)LY (G) LIGHT

WHAT SO (C) PROUDLY WE (G) HAILED AT THE (C) TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING

WHOSE BROAD STRIPES AND BRIGHT STARS THROUGH THE (Am) PERI(D7)LOUS (G) FIGHT

O'ER THE (C) RAMPARTS WE (G) WATCHED WERE SO (C) GALLANTLY STREAMING?

 

AND THE ROCKET'S RED (G) GLARE, THE BOMBS (Dm) BURSTING IN (F) AIR

GAVE (C) PROOF THROUGH THE (G) NIGHT THAT OUR (Am) FLAG WAS (D7) STILL (G) THERE

O (C) SAY DOES THAT (F) STAR-SPANGLED (Dm) BANNER YET (G) WAVE

O'ER THE (C) LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME (F) OF (G) THE (C) BRAVE

 

ON THE SHORE DIMLY SEEN THROUGH THE MISTS OF THE DEEP

WHERE THE FOE'S HAUGHTY HOST IN DREAD SILENCE REPOSES

WHAT IS THAT WHICH THE BREEZE, O'ER THE TOWERING STEEP

AS IT FITTINGLY BLOWS HALF CONCEALS, HALF DISCLOSES?

 

NOW IT CATCHES THE GLEAM OF THE MORNING'S FIRST BEAM

IN FULL GLORY REFLECTED NOW SHINES IN THE STREAM

'TIS THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER O LONG MAY IT WAVE

O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

 

AND WHERE IS THE BAND WHO VAUNTINGLY SWORE

'MID THE HAVOC OF WAR AND THE BATTLE'S CONFUSION

A HOME AND A COUNTRY THEY'D LEAVE US NO MORE?

THEIR BLOOD HAS WASHED OUT THEIR FOUL FOOTSTEPS POLLUTION

 

NO REFUGE COULD SAVE THE HIRELING AND SLAVE

FROM THE TERROR OF FLIGHT OR THE GLOOM OF THE GRAVE

AND THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER IN TRIUMPH DOTH WAVE

O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

 

O THUS BE IT EVER WHEN FREE MEN SHALL STAND

BETWEEN THEIR LOVED HOMES AND THE WAR'S DESOLATION

BLEST WITH VICTORY AND PEACE MAY THE HEAV'N RESCUED LAND

PRAISE THE POWER THAT HATH MADE AND PRESERVED US A NATION!

 

THEN CONQUER WE MUST WHEN OUR CAUSE IT IS JUST

AND THIS BE OUR MOTTO, "IN GOD IS OUR TRUST"

AND THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER IN TRIUMPH SHALL WAVE

O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

(CHORUS) WHY DID I PLAY THE WAITING GAME, THE (D) WAITING GAME, (G) I LOST THE ONE I A(D)DORED

THOUGH SHE (G) MADE MY HEART SING, SOMEHOW (C) WE NEVER MARRIED

IN (G) SPRING, OH, (D) WHAT WAS I WAITING (G) FOR

 

NOW SINCE WE'VE BEEN PARTED, THE OTHERS I MEET

WOULD STILL ASK FOR MORE WITH THE WORLD AT THEIR FEET

BUT SHE WAS SO KIND AND SO GENTLE AND SWEET

AND ALL THAT SHE WANTED WAS LOVE

 

(UP ONE KEY) WHENEVER I'M RESTLESS WITH SOMEBODY NEW

I RUN FOR A MILE AND THEN HERE'S WHAT I DO

I DREAM OF THOSE EYES THAT WERE CORNFLOWER BLUE

AND HOW SHE JUST WANTED MY LOVE

 

(LIKE CHORUS) WHY DID I PLAY THE WAITING GAME, THE WAITING GAME, I LOST THE ONE I ADORED

THOUGH SHE MADE MY HEART SING, SOMEHOW WE NEVER MARRIED

IN SPRING, OH, WHAT WAS I WAITING FOR


THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

BILLY WALKER

AUSTRALIAN BALLAD

 

(A) THERE WAS A WILD CO(D)LONIAL BOY, JACK (E) DUGGAN WAS HIS (A) NAME

HE WAS BORN AND BRED IN (D) IRELAND, IN A (E) PLACE CALLED CASTLE(A)MAINE

HE WAS HIS MOTHER’S (D) ONLY SON, HIS (E) FATHER’S PRIDE AND (A) JOY

AND DEARLY DID HIS (D) PARENTS LOVE THE (E) WILD COLONIAL (A) BOY

HE ROBBED THE RICH TO HELP THE POOR HE STABBED JAMES MCAVOY

A TERROR TO AUSTRALIA WAS THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

ONE MORNING ON THE PRAIRIE WHILE JACK DUGGAN RODE ALONG

WHILE LISTENING TO THE MOCKINGBIRD HE SANG A CHEERFUL SONG

UP JUMPED THREE TROOPERS ARMED WITH GUNS, DAVIS, KELLY AND FITZROY

THEY’D ALL SET OUT TO CAPTURE HIM, THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

SURRENDER NOW JACK DUGGAN, YOU SEE WE’RE THREE TO ONE

SURRENDER IN THE QUEEN'S HIGH NAME, YOU ARE A PLUNDERING SON

JACK PULLED TWO PISTOLS FROM HIS BELT AND PROUDLY HELD THEM HIGH

“I’LL FIGHT BUT NO SURRENDER”, CRIED THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

HE FIRED AT SHOT AT KELLY, THAT BROUGHT HIM TO THE GROUND

AND TURNING 'ROUND TO DAVIS, HE RECEIVED A FATAL WOUND

A BULLET PIERCED HIS PROUD YOUNG HEART FROM THE PISTOL OF FITZROY

A TERROR TO AUSTRALIA WAS THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

FOR TWO LONG YEARS THIS DARLING YOUTH RAN ON HIS WILD CAREER

WITH A HEART THAT KNEW NO DANGER, THEIR JUSTICE DID NOT FEAR

HE STUCK THE BEECHWORTH COACH UP AND HE ROBBED JUDGE MCEVOY

WHO, TREMBLING GAVE HIS GOLD UP TO THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

HE BADE THE JUDGE "GOOD MORNING" AND HE TOLD HIM TO BEWARE

FOR HE NEVER ROBBED AN HONEST JUDGE WHAT ACTED ON THE SQUARE

YET YOU WOULD ROB A MOTHER OF HER SON AND ONLY JOY

AND BREED A RACE OF OUTLAWS LIKE THE WILD COLONIAL BOY

 

ONE MORNING ON THE PRAIRIE WILD JACK DUGGAN RODE ALONG

THIS IS MY FATHER'S WORLD, I WALK A DESERT LONE

IN A BUSH ABLAZE TO MY WONDERING GAZE GOD MAKES HIS GLORY KNOWN

THIS IS MY FATHER'S WORLD, A WANDERER I MAY ROAM

WHATE'ER MY LOT, IT MATTERS NOT, MY HEART IS STILL AT HOME

WASN’T THAT A PARTY

IRISH ROVERS

 

(A) COULD HAVE BEEN THE WHISKEY, MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE GIN

TELL ME, ME OH, ME OH MY, WASN’T THAT A (A) PARTY

 

SOMEONE TOOK A GRAPEFRUIT, WORE IT LIKE A HAT

I SAW SOMEONE UNDER MY KITCHEN TABLE, TALKIN’ TO MY OLD TOM CAT

THEY WERE TALKIN’ ABOUT HOCKEY, THE CAT WAS TALKIN’ BACK

‘LONG ABOUT THEN EVERYTHING WENT BLACK, WASN’T THAT A PARTY

 

I’M SURE IT’S JUST MY MEMORY, PLAYING TRICKS ON ME

BUT I THINK I SAW MY BUDDY, CUTTIN’ DOWN MY NEIGHBOR’S TREE

BILLY JOE AND TOMMY WELL THEY WENT A LITTLE FAR

THEY WERE SITTIN’ IN THE BACK SEAT BLOWIN’ ON A SIREN FROM SOMEBODY’S POLICE CAR

 

WELL YOU SEE YOUR HONOUR, IT WAS ALL IN FUN

WE HAD THAT LITTLE BIT OF TRACK MEET DOWN ON MAIN STREET

TO SEE IF THE COPS COULD RUN, THEY RAN US IN TO SEE YOU, IN AN ALCOHOLIC HAZE

SURE COULD USE THOSE THIRTY DAYS, TO RECOVER FROM THE PARTY

 

WASN’T THAT A PARTY, WASN’T THAT A PARTY


WE’LL MEET AGAIN

WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD

GORDON LIGHTFOOT

CHORD Asus2 = STRINGS 3 AND 4 ON 2ND FRET

 

(Asus2) THE LEGEND LIVES ON FROM THE (Em) CHIPPEWA ON DOWN

OF THE (G) BIG LAKE THEY (D) CALLED GITCHE (Asus2) GUMEE

THE LAKE, IT IS SAID, NEVER (Em) GIVES UP HER DEAD

WHEN THE (G) SKIES OF NO(D)VEMBER TURN (Asus2) GLOOMY

WITH A LOAD OF IRON ORE TWENTY-SIX (Em) THOUSAND TONS MORE

THAN THE (G) EDMUND FITZ(D)GERALD WEIGHED (Asus2) EMPTY.

THAT GOOD SHIP AND TRUE WAS A (Em) BONE TO BE CHEWED

WHEN THE (G) GALES OF NO(D)VEMBER CAME (Asus2) EARLY.

 

THE SHIP WAS THE PRIDE OF THE AMERICAN SIDE

COMING BACK FROM SOME MILL IN WISCONSIN

AS THE BIG FREIGHTERS GO, IT WAS BIGGER THAN MOST

WITH A CREW AND GOOD CAPTAIN WELL SEASONED

CONCLUDING SOME TERMS WITH A COUPLE OF STEEL FIRMS

WHEN THEY LEFT FULLY LOADED FOR CLEVELAND

AND LATER THAT NIGHT WHEN THE SHIP'S BELL RANG

COULD IT BE THE NORTH WIND THEY'D BEEN FEELIN'?

 

THE WIND IN THE WIRES MADE A TATTLE-TALE SOUND

AND A WAVE BROKE OVER THE RAILING

AND EVERY MAN KNEW, AS THE CAPTAIN DID TOO,

T'WAS THE WITCH OF NOVEMBER COME STEALIN'.

THE DAWN CAME LATE AND THE BREAKFAST HAD TO WAIT

WHEN THE GALES OF NOVEMBER CAME SLASHIN'.

WHEN AFTERNOON CAME IT WAS FREEZIN' RAIN

IN THE FACE OF A HURRICANE WEST WIND.

 

WHEN SUPPERTIME CAME, THE OLD COOK CAME ON DECK SAYIN'.

"FELLAS, IT'S TOO ROUGH TO FEED YA."

AT SEVEN P.M. A MAIN HATCHWAY CAVED IN', HE SAID

"FELLAS, IT'S BEEN GOOD T'KNOW YA"

THE CAPTAIN WIRED IN HE HAD WATER COMIN' IN

AND THE GOOD SHIP AND CREW WAS IN PERIL.

AND LATER THAT NIGHT WHEN 'IS LIGHTS WENT OUTTA SIGHT

CAME THE WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD.

 

DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHERE THE LOVE OF GOD GOES

WHEN THE WAVES TURN THE MINUTES TO HOURS?

THE SEARCHES ALL SAY THEY'D HAVE MADE WHITEFISH BAY

IF THEY'D PUT FIFTEEN MORE MILES BEHIND HER.

THEY MIGHT HAVE SPLIT UP OR THEY MIGHT HAVE CAPSIZED;

MAY HAVE BROKE DEEP AND TOOK WATER.

AND ALL THAT REMAINS IS THE FACES AND THE NAMES

OF THE WIVES AND THE SONS AND THE DAUGHTERS.

 

LAKE HURON ROLLS, SUPERIOR SINGS

IN THE ROOMS OF HER ICE-WATER MANSION.

OLD MICHIGAN STEAMS LIKE A YOUNG MAN'S DREAMS;

THE ISLANDS AND BAYS ARE FOR SPORTSMEN.

AND FARTHER BELOW LAKE ONTARIO

TAKES IN WHAT LAKE ERIE CAN SEND HER,

AND THE IRON BOATS GO AS THE MARINERS ALL KNOW

WITH THE GALES OF NOVEMBER REMEMBERED.

 

IN A MUSTY OLD HALL IN DETROIT THEY PRAYED,

IN THE MARITIME SAILORS' CATHEDRAL.

THE CHURCH BELL CHIMED TILL IT RANG TWENTY-NINE TIMES

FOR EACH MAN ON THE EDMUND FITZGERALD.

THE LEGEND LIVES ON FROM THE CHIPPEWA ON DOWN

OF THE BIG LAKE THEY CALL GITCHE GUMEE.

"SUPERIOR", THEY SAID, "NEVER GIVES UP HER DEAD

WHEN THE GALES OF NOVEMBER COME EARLY!"
