Lyrics for the Day – Queen of Hearts

Even if it’s only for a very short time…

th (4).jpg

Midnight
And I’m a-waiting on the 12:05
Hoping it’ll take me
Just a little farther down the line

And moonlight
You’re just a heartache in disguise
Won’t you keep my heart from breaking
If it’s only for a very short time

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
Laying out another lie
Thinking ’bout a life of crime
Cuz that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Honey
You know it makes you mad
Why is everybody telling everybody
What you have done

Baby
I know it makes you sad
But when they’re handing out the heartaches
You know you got to have you some

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
Laying out another lie
Thinking ’bout a life of crime
That’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Lovers
I know you’ve had a few
But hide your heart beneath the covers
And tell ’em they’re the only one

And others
They know just what I’m going through
And it’s a-hard to be a lover
When you say you’re only in it for fun

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
Playing with the queen of hearts
And knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
And laying out another lie
And thinking ’bout a life of crime
If that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts

Lyrics for the Day – Only You Know And I Know

We’re alone together…

th (8).jpg

Only you know and I know
All the lovin’ we’ve got to show
So don’t refuse to believe it
By readin’ too many meanings

‘Cause you know
That I mean what I say
So don’t go
And ever take me the wrong way
You know you can’t go on gettin’ your own way
‘Cause if you do
It’s gonna get you someday

We’re both here to be pleasin’
Oh, no, no, not deceivin’
But it’s hard to believe in
Ah yeah, when you’ve been so mistreated

‘Cause you know
That I mean what I say
So don’t go
And ever take me the wrong way
You know you can’t go on gettin’ your own way
‘Cause if you do
It’s gonna get you someday

If I seem to mislead you
It’s just my craziness comin’ through
But when it comes down to just two
Ah, I ain’t no crazier than you

‘Cause you know
That I mean what I say
So don’t go
And ever take me the wrong way
You know you can’t go on gettin’ your own way
‘Cause if you do
It’s gonna get you someday

Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
Oh yeah
Only you know and I know
Oh yeah
Get up

Lyrics for the Day — Copperhead Road

Not only a classic and the best of Steve Earle but a great story about what happens with government controls like the draft and prohibition.

th (1).jpg

Well my name’s John Lee Pettimore
Same as my daddy and his daddy before
You hardly ever saw Grandaddy down here
He only came to town about twice a year
He’d buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line
Everybody knew that he made moonshine
Now the revenue man wanted Grandaddy bad
He headed up the holler with everything he had
It’s before my time but I’ve been told
He never come back from Copperhead Road

Now Daddy ran the whiskey in a big block Dodge
Bought it at an auction at the Mason’s Lodge
Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side
Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside
Well him and my uncle tore that engine down
I still remember that rumblin’ sound
Well the sheriff came around in the middle of the night
Heard mama cryin’ knew something wasn’t right
He was headed down to Knoxville with the weekly load
You could smell the whiskey burnin’ down Copperhead Road

I volunteered for the Army on my birthday
They draft the white trash first ’round here anyway
I done two tours of duty in Vietnam
I came home with a brand new plan
I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico
I just plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road
Now the DEA’s got a chopper in the air
I wake up screaming like I’m back over there
I learned a thing or two from ol’ Charlie don’t you know
You better stay away from Copperhead Road

Copperhead Road
Copperhead Road
Copperhead Road
