Two Stories of my life:

1)

I lit out from reno, I was trailed by twenty hounds
Didnít get to sleep last night ítill the morning came around.

Set out runniní but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight

Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills
I spent the night in utah in a cave up in the hills.

Set out runniní but I take my time, a friend of the devil is a friend of mine,
If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight.

I ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there
He took my twenty dollar bill and vanished in the air.

Set out runniní but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight.

Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night,
The first oneís named sweet anne marie, and sheís my hearts delight.
The second one is prison, babe, the sheriffís on my trail,
And if he catches up with me, Iíll spend my life in jail.

Got a wife in chino, babe, and one in cherokee
The first one says sheís got my child, but it donít look like me.

Set out runniní but I take my time,
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine,
If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight.



Second:


Me and my uncle went ridin down,
South colorado, west texas bound.
We stopped over in santa fe,
That bein' the point just about half way,
And you know it was the hottest part of the day.

I took the horses up to the stall,
Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all.
Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt,
It bein' summer, I took off my shirt,
And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt.

When texas cowboys, they's all around,
With liquor and money, they loaded down.
So soon after payday, know it seemed a shame;
You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game,
High-low jack and the winner take the hand.

My uncle starts winnin; cowboys got sore.
One of them called him, and then two more,
Accused him of cheatin; oh no, it couldn?t be.
I know my uncle, he's as honest as me,
And I'm as honest as a gamblin? man can be.

One of them cowboys, he starts to draw,
And I shot him down, lord he never saw.
Well I grabbed a bottle, cracked him in the jaw,
Shot me another, oh damn he won?t grow old.
In the confusion, my uncle grabbed the gold,
And we high-tailed it down to mexico.

I love those cowboys, I love their gold,
I loved my uncle, God rest his soul,
Taught me good, lord, taught me all I know
Taught me so well, I grabbed that gold
And I left his dead a$$ there by the side of the road.

So beautiful Renauda ...
Thanks for posting these. Songs can be so meaningful ... smile

I really like John Denver ...

Somewhere in the Coffee Room there was a favorite song thread. There is one song with lyrics that are burned into my mind (also Jonh Denver):

Rhymes and Reasons

So you speak to me in sadness and the coming of the winter,
Fear that is within' you know that seems to never end,
And the dreams that have escaped you and the hope that you've forgotten
And you tell me that you need me now and you want to be my friend
And you wonder where we're going, where's the rhyme and where's the reason
And it's you cannot accept it is here we must begin
To seek the wisdom of the children
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind.
For the children and the flowers for my sisters and my brothers,
Their laughter and their loveliness would clear a cloudy day.
Like the music of the mountains and the colors of the rainbow
They're a promise of the future and the blessing for today.
Though the city starts to crumble and the towers fail around us
The sun is slowly fading and it's colder than the sea
It is written: from the desert to the mountains they shall lead us
By the hand and by the heart they will comfort you and me.
In their innocence and trusting, they will teach us to be free.

For the children and the flowers for my sisters and my brothers,
Their laughter and their loveliness would clear a cloudy day.
And the song that i am singing is a prayer for nonbelievers
Come and stand beside us we can find a better way.

For Katie:

And I have watched that morning star
A thousand times since then
And hoped that it would lead me back
To that Calgary girl again.
But time has gone and slipped away
And every highway I chose
Took me further from the sunrise
Where the Rockies turn rose.
But someday I'll find that Calgary girl
Where the Rockies turn rose.

Please don't disappear Renauda ... I simply like you too much.
You're most incredibly brilliant. There's a new Coffee Room out there that really needs you.

Take care.

Hay lb--I started out here getting into a big argument with you. I obviously was wrong in whatever I was saying. You taught me a good lesson.

It was a pleasure to have posted here on the same Forum with you.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamt I held you in my arms.
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken,
So I hung my head down and cried.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

Renauda,

Hope to see you at one of the other forums. Who else is going to fill us in on Putin, and the oil market? I've always valued your insight, even if I didn't always agree with your politics. smile
