JANIS JOPLIN LYRICS

"Summertime"

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the livingís easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cottonís high, Lord, so high.

Your daddyís rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
Sheís looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
No, no, no, no, donít you cry.
Donít you cry!

One of these mornings
Youíre gonna rise, rise up singing,
Youíre gonna spread your wings,
Child, and take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothingís going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Donít you cry,
Cry.

 "Me & Bobby McGee"



Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train
And Iís feeling nearly as faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
It rode us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobbyís hand in mine,
We sang every song that driver knew.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing donít mean nothing honey if it ainít free, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

>From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun,
Hey, Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
Through all kinds of weather, through everything that we done,
Hey Bobby baby kept me from the cold.

One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away,
Heís looking for that home and I hope he finds it,
But Iíd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday
To be holding Bobbyís body next to mine.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing, thatís all that Bobby left me, yeah,
But feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
Hey, feeling good was good enough for me, hmm hmm,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la la la Bobby McGee..

La La la, la la la la la la,
La La la la la la la la la, hey now Bobby now Bobby McGee yeah.
Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey now Bobby now, Bobby McGee, yeah.

Lord, Iím calling my lover, calling my man,
I said Iím calling my lover just the best I can,
Címon, where is Bobby now, where is Bobby McGee, yeah,
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord!
Yeah! Whew!
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee.

Ball and Chain

 

 

Sittin' down by my window,
Just lookin' out at the rain, at the rain
I said I'm sittin' down by my window,
Just lookin' out at the rain.
You know somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
Felt just like a ball and chain.

It all goes wrong.
And I say, oh, now tell me why,
Does every thing go wrong, all wrong.
Say, here you gone today, an' I wanted to love you
For so long.

Love's got a hold on me, baby,
Feels just like a ball and chain, hmm hmm hmm.
Oh, love's got a hold on me, baby,

Wanna leave me in so much pain.

And I say, oh oh oh, hon', tell me why,
Tell me why, tell me why, oh tell me why, why, why.
And I say, oh, honey why, why, oh why, tell me why.

Honey, gonna last, last
Till the day I die.

And I say oh, whoa, whoa, hon'

What you can do, Lord.
And I say oh whoa,

Oh suddenly you broke my heart
Oh when I was givin' my love to you.

Sittin' down by my window,
Just lookin' out at the rain.
I said I'm sittin' down by my window,
Just lookin' out at the rain.
Somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
Felt just like a ball and chain.

And I say oh, hon this can't be
This can't be all in vain, no, no, no.
And I say whoa, whoa, this can't be,
Honey, it can't be all in vain,
Hope there is someone that could tell me
Hon', tell me why love is like
A ball and chain.

Lyrics - the crystal ship

Song: the crystal ship

before you slip into unconsciousness
i'd like to have another kiss
another flashing chance at bliss
another kiss, another kiss


the days are bright and filled with pain
enclose me in your gentle rain
the time you ran was too insane
we'll meet again, we'll meet again


oh tell me where your freedom lies
the streets are fields that never die
deliver me from reasons why
you'd rather cry, i'd rather fly


the crystal ship is being filled
a thousand girls, a thousand thrills
a million ways to spend your time
when we get back, i'll drop a line

the time to hesitate is through

try now we can only lose
and our love become a funeral pyre


come on baby, light my fire
come on baby, light my fire
try to set the night on fire, yeah


the time to hesitate is through
no time to wallow in the mire
try now we can only lose
and our love become a funeral pyre

Album: Strange Days

Song: people are strange

people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone
women seem wicked when you're unwanted
streets are uneven when you're down


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange


people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone
women seem wicked when you're unwanted
streets are uneven when you're down


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange

 

 

Lyrics - hello, i love you

Album: Waiting for the Sun

Song: hello, i love you

hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game
hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game

she's walking down the street
blind to every eye she meets
do you think you'll be the guy
to make the queen of the angels sigh?

hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game
hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game

she holds her head so high
like a statue in the sky
her arms are wicked, and her legs are long
when she moves my brain screams out this song

sidewalk crouches at her feet
like a dog that begs for something sweet
do you hope to make her see, you fool?
do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel?

hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello
i want you
hello
i need my baby
hello, hello, hello, hello

 

 

Lyrics - love street

Album: Waiting for the Sun

Song: love street

she lives on love street
lingers long on love street
she has a house and garden
i would like to see what happens

she has robes and she has monkeys
lazy diamond studded flunkies
she has wisdom and knows what to do
she has me and she has you

she has wisdom and knows what to do
she has me and she has you

i see you live on love street
there's this store where the creatures meet
i wonder what they do in there
summer sunday and a year
i guess i like it fine, so far

she lives on love street
lingers long on love street
she has a house and garden
i would like to see what happens

la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Lyrics - the soft parade

Album: The Soft Parade

Song: the soft parade

when i was back there in seminary school
there was a person there
who put forth the proposition
that you can petition the lord with prayer
petition the lord with prayer
petition the lord with prayer
you cannot petition the lord with prayer!

can you give me sanctuary
i must find a place to hide
a place for me to hide

can you find me soft asylum
i can't make it anymore
the man is at the door

peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy
champion sax and a girl named sandy
there's only four ways to get unraveled
one is to sleep and the other is travel, da da
one is a bandit up in the hills
one is to love your neighbor 'till
his wife gets home

catacombs
nursery bones
winter women
growing stones
carrying babies
to the river

streets and shoes
avenues
leather riders
selling news
the monk bought lunch

ha ha, he bought a little
yes, he did
woo!
this is the best part of the trip
this is the trip, the best part
i really like
what'd he say?
yeah!
yeah, right!
pretty good, huh
huh!
yeah, i'm proud to be a part of this number

successful hills are here to stay
everything must be this way
gentle streets where people play
welcome to the soft parade

all our lives we sweat and save
building for a shallow grave
must be something else we say
somehow to defend this place
everything must be this way
everything must be this way, yeah

the soft parade has now begun
listen to the engines hum
people out to have some fun
a cobra on my left
leopard on my right, yeah

the deer woman in a silk dress
girls with beads around their necks
kiss the hunter of the green vest
who has wrestled before
with lions in the night

out of sight!
the lights are getting brighter
the radio is moaning
calling to the dogs
there are still a few animals
left out in the yard
but it's getting harder
to describe sailors
to the underfed

tropic corridor
tropic treasure
what got us this far
to this mild equator?

we need someone or something new
something else to get us through, yeah, c'mon

callin' on the dogs
callin' on the dogs
oh, it's gettin' harder
callin' on the dogs
callin' in the dogs
callin' all the dogs
callin' on the gods

you gotta meet me
too late, baby
slay a few animals
at the crossroads
too late
all in the yard
but it's gettin' harder
by the crossroads
you gotta meet me
oh, we're goin', we're goin great
at the edge of town
tropic corridor
tropic treasure
havin' a good time
got to come along
what got us this far
to this mild equator?
outskirts of the city
you and i
we need someone new
somethin' new
somethin' else to get us through
better bring your gun
better bring your gun
tropic corridor
tropic treasure
we're gonna ride and have some fun

when all else fails
we can whip the horse's eyes
and make them sleep
and cry

 

Lyrics - love her madly

Lyrics - riders on the storm

Album: L.A. Woman

Song: riders on the storm

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
into this house we're born
into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone
an actor out alone
riders on the storm

there's a killer on the road
his brain is squirmin' like a toad
take a long holiday
let your children play
if ya give this man a ride
sweet memory will die
killer on the road, yeah

girl ya gotta love your man
girl ya gotta love your man
take him by the hand
make him understand
the world on you depends
our life will never end
gotta love your man, yeah

wow!

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
into this house we're born
into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone
an actor out alone
riders on the storm

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm

THE WIND CRIES MARY

 

 

AFTER ALL JACKS ARE IN THEIR BOXES
AND THE CLOWNS HAVE ALL GONE TO BED
YOU CAN HEAR HAPPINESS STAGGERING ON DOWN THE STREET
FOOTPRINTS DRESSED IN RED

AND THE WIND WHISPERS MARY

A BROOM IS DREARILY SWEEPING
UP THE BROKEN PIECES OF YESTERDAY'S LIFE
SOMEWHERE A QUEEN IS WEEPING
SOMEWHERE A KING HAS NO WIFE

AND THE WIND CRIES MARY

THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS THEY TURN A BLUE TOMORROW
AND SHINE THEIR EMPTINESS DOWN ON MY BED
THE TINY ISLAND SAGS DOWNSTREAM
CAUSE THE LIFE THAT THEY LIVED IS DEAD

AND THE WIND SCREAMS MARY

WILL THE WIND EVER REMEMBER
THE NAMES IT HAS BLOWN IN THE PAST
AND WITH ITS CRUTCH ITS OLD AGE AND ITS WISDOM
IT WHISPERS "NO, THIS WILL BE THE LAST"

AND THE WIND CRIES MARY

 

 

All Along The Watchtower

(written by: Bob Dylan)

 

 

There must be some kind of way outta here
said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion...
I can't get no relief

Business men, they drink my wine
Plowman dig my earth
None were level on the mind
Nobody up at his word
hey, hey

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But, uh...but you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin' falsely now
The hour's getting late, hey

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

NOTE: "I was with Sean in the kitchen with the bread. I kept
thinking: 'Well, I ought to be inspired to write about Sean. I
was going through a bit of that and when I finally gave up on
thinking about writing a song about him, of course, the song
came to me." (John Lennon, 1980)
