Georgia on My Mind Lyrics

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Talkin' 'bout Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Georgia, oh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Georgia, Georgia, sweet Georgia
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Just an old sweet, sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind

 

Hallelujah I Love Her So Lyrics

Let me tell you 'bout a boy (girl) I know.
He(She) is my baby and he (she) lives next door.
Ev'ry morning 'fore the sun come up,
He (she) brings my coffee in my fav'rite cup.
That's why I know, yes, I know,
Hallelujah, I just love him (her) so.
When I'm in trouble and I have no friends,
I know hel'll (she'll) go with me until the end.
Ev'rybody asks me how I know.
I smile at them and say he (she) told me so.
That's why I know, yes, I know,
Hallelujah, I just love him (her) so.
Now if I call him (her) on the telephone,
And tell him (her) that I'm all alone,
> > By the time I count from one to four,I hear him (her) on my door.
In the evening when the sun does down,
When there is nobody else around,
He (she) kisses me and he (she) holds me tight.
He (And) tells me "Baby, (Daddy) ev'ry thing's all right."
That's why I know, yes, I know,
Hallelujah, I just love him (her) so.
REPEAT

Ol' Man River Lyrics

Here we all work 'long the Mississippi
Here we all work while the white folk play
Pullin' them boats
from the dawn till sunset
Gettin' no rest till the judgment day

Don't look up and don't look down
You
don't das make the boss man frown
Bend your knees and bow your head
And pull that rope until your
dead

Let me go 'way from the Mississippi
Let me go 'way from the white man boss
Show me that stream
called the River Jordan
That's the old stream that I long to cross.

Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River

He don't say nothin', but he must know somethin'
He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along

He
don't plant tatters, and he don't plant cotton
And them what plants em, are soon forgotten
But Ol'
Man River, just keeps rollin' along

You and me, we sweat and strain
Body all achin' and racked with
pain
Tote that barge and lift that bail
You get a little drunk and you lands in jail

I gets weary,
and sick of trying
I'm tired of livin', but I'm scared of dyin'
But Ol' Man River, he just keeps

 

Rainy Night in Georgia Lyrics

Hoverin' by my suitcase, tryin' to find a warm place to spend the night
Heavy rain fallin', seems I hear your voice callin' "It's all right."
A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia
It seems like it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

Neon signs a-flashin', taxi cabs and buses passin' through the night
A distant moanin' of a train seems to play a sad refrain to the night
A rainy night in Georgia, such a rainy night in Georgia
Lord, I believe it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

How many times I wondered
It still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it
It's life and you just got to play the game

<instrumental interlude>

I find me a place in a box car, so I take my guitar to pass some time
Late at night when it's hard to rest I hold your picture to my chest and I feel fine
(minor scat) But it's a rainy night in Georgia, baby, it's a rainy night in Georgia I
feel it's rainin' all over the world, kinda lonely now And it's rainin' all over the
world

Oh, have you ever been lonely, people?
And you feel that it was rainin' all over this man's world
You're talking 'bout rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin',
rainin', rainin' rainin', rainin', rainin' <etc. to end>



 

Shake A Tail feather Lyrics

Well I heard about the fella you've been dancing with
All over the neighbourhood
So why didn't you ask me baba
Or didn't you think I could

{ band joins in }

Well I know that the Boogiloo is out of sight
but the shingaling she's paying tonight
but if that were you and me hotta baba
I would have shown you how to do right

Do it right, ( ah ha ), do it right
Do it right, ( do it right ), (( do it right )) { C # }
(( Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! ))

(( Twisting, shake-it shake-it shake-it shake-it baba ))
(( Heaven go loop-dee-loop )), shake it up baba
(( Heaven go loop-dee-li ))
{ low } Bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather
{ mid joins } Bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather
{ All } Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

{ repeat chorus }
 

Still Crazy After All These Years Lyrics

I met my old lover
On the street last night
She seemed so glad to see me
I just smiled
And we talked about some old times
And we drank ourselves some beers
Still crazy afler all these years
Still crazy after all these years

I'm not the kind of man
Who tends to socialize
I seem to lean on
Old familiar ways
And I aint no fool for love songs
That whisper in my ears
Still crazy after all these years
Still crazy after all these years

Four in the morning
Crapped out
Yawning
Longing my life away
I'll never worry
Why should l?
Its all gonna fade

Now I sit by my window
And I watch the cars
I fear I'll do some damage
One fine day
But I would not be convicted
By a jury of my peers
Still crazy
Still crazy
Still crazy after all these years


Till There Was You Lyrics


There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing
No I never heard them at all
Till there was you

There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No I never saw them at all
Till there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and dew

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and dew

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you
