Song No 1a

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gather 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road, I get a feelin'
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

     

  Song 1b

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away, 'ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.
I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover, you'll know who I am by the songs that I sing.
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover, who cares what tomorrow shall bring?

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away, 'ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.
I can't be contented with yesterday's glory, I can't live on promises winter to spring.
Today is my moment, and now is my story, I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away, 'ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.


Song No 2
Such a feeling's coming over me, there is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream
Everything I want the world to be, is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it's because you are near
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

CHORUS
I'm on top of the world looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found, ever since you've been around
Your love puts me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There a pleasing sense of happiness for me
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

CHORUS

Song No. 4

I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes

Love is all around me and so the feeling goes

its written on the wind, its everywhere I go

so if u realy love me come on and let it show

 

you know i love you I  always will

my minds made up by the way that I feel

there-is  no beginnging ther'll be no end

'cos on-all my love you can depend


I see your face before me as I lay on my bed

I kinda get to thinking of all the things we said       

you made your promise to me I made mine to you

I need someone beside me in everything I do

 

you know i love you I  always will

my minds made up by the way that I feel

there-is  no beginning ther'll be no end

'cos on-all my love you can depend

FIRST VERSE AGAIN

Song No 5.     Can’t Help Falling in Love with You

 

Wise men say, only fools rush in

But I can't help falling in love with you

 

Shall  I  stay, would it be a sin?

If I can't help fall0ing in love with you

 

Like a river flows surely to the sea

Darling so it goes

Some things are meant to be


Take my hand, take my whole life too

For I can't help falling in love with you

 

Like a river flows surely to the sea

Darling so it goes

Some things are meant to be

 

Take my hand, take my whole life too

For I can't help falling in love with you

For I can't help falling in love with you

Song No. 6   Annie’s Song


You fill up my senses, like a night in the forest.

Like a mountain in springtime, like a walk in the rain.

Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.

You fill up my senses, come fill me again.


Come let me love you, let me give my life to you.
 
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms.

Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.

Come let me love you, come love me again.


You fill up my senses, like a night in the forest.
 
Like a mountain in springtime, like a walk in the rain.

Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.

You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

First verse again.


Song No. 7

If life were gracious enough to grant my way,

I would reach to the ends of the earth

To give love in every day.

And each would find his home

With peace and friendship there;

Where joyous songs abound

And happiness to share.

If life were gracious enough to grant my dream,

I would see your face in the stars

And hear your song in every stream.

The comfort of your smile

In the warm caress of spring,

In the dance of life all the while,

I feel your love in everything.

 

 

We will make life gracious enough to fulfill our dream.

We will lift off the weight of the world

And our love will blossom supreme.

We will free each heart from the pain

And anguish of the past.

Through the preciousness of our love     

True joy will reign at last.

Song No. 9     WAGON WHEELS


Headed down south to the land of the pines, I'm thumbing' my way into North Caroline
Starin’ up the road and pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours, Pickin’ me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a hopin’ for Raleigh, can see my baby tonight

[Chorus]
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey…hey…hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain, Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey…hey…hey mama rock me


Runnin' from the cold up in New England, I’S born to be a fiddler in an old string ban
My baby plays the guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, the North country winters is a getting’ me now, Lost all-my-money so I had to leave
I ain’t a turnin’ back to livin’ that old life no more

[Chorus]


Walkin' to the south out of Ran oke, I caught me a trucker, had a long toke
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap Johnson City, Tennessee 
And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun, my baby call my name,
and I know she's the one
An if I die in Raleigh, at least I will die free
[Chorus]

Song No. 11

Chorus

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


There is a meadow, high on a mountain
Where skylark and wild rose abound.
The eternal homeland, my hearts desires,
Shines like gold at the rainbow’s end.


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


Through the long winter, the harsh winds blowing. 
All creatures die on barren ground.
Now sunlight warming the ice to streamlets. 
Earth in spring is a garden of joy.

CHORUS

Song No 14

A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land, dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born


A silent wish sails the seven seas
The winds of change whisper in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumble, tossed and torn
This comes to pass when a child is born


A rosy hue settles all around
You've got the feel you're on solid ground
For a spell or two, no-one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born


It is no dream, no illusion now
It has come true, someway and somehow
All across the land, dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born

Song No 15       Dock of the Bay.  


Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again

Chorus

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Lovin-' time, lovin-, time (final)


I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco Bay
Cause I've got something to live for
Looks like everything’s a coming my way

Chorus


Sittin' here resting my bones
And this happiness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Chorus

Song No 16       What a Wonderfull World

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you,
And I think to myself, What a wonderful world.

Chorus

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,

Are also on the faces of people going by

I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do

They’re really saying I love you.


[Verse 2]

I see skies of blue and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night,
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Chorus

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know,
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

[Outro]
Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

Song No. 17     Have you ever seen the rain. 


Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm, I know
It's been coming for some time
When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day, I know
Shining down like water


[Chorus]
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day


Yesterday and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard, I know
Been that way for all my time
'Til forever on it goes
Through the circle fast and slow, I know
And it can't stop, I wonder

Chorus

Song No. 18        Mr. Tambourine Man

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you.

Though I know that evenings empire has returned into sand,
Vanished from my hand,
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

[Chorus]

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship,
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
To be wandering.
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
I promise to go under it.

[Chorus]

Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

[Chorus]



    Song No. 19                 MY LOVE

CHORUS

My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine, softer than a sigh.

My love is deeper than the deepest ocean, wider than the sky.

My love is brighter than the brightest star,

that shines every night above.

And there is nothing in this world that can ever change my love

 

Something happened to my heart the day that I met you.

Something that I never felt before.

You are always on my mind no matter what I do,

and every day it seems I want you more.

CHORUS:

My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine, softer than a sigh.

My love is deeper than the deepest ocean, wider than the sky.

My love is brighter than the brightest star,

that shines every night above.

And there is nothing in this world that can ever change my love

 

Once I thought that love was meant for anyone else but me

Once I thought you'd never come my way.

Now that only goes to show how wrong we all can be,

And now my love grows stronger every day.

CHORUS:
