Lyrics for the Day — If 6 Was 9

And for this election season…

th (4).jpg

Yeah, sing the song brother

If the sun refuse to shine
I don’t mind
I don’t mind
If the mountains
Fell in the sea
let it be
It ain’t me
Alright ‘cos I got my own world to look through
And I ain’t gonna copy you

Now if a 6 turned out to be 9
I don’t mind
I don’t mind
If all the hippies
Cut off all their hair
I don’t care
I don’t care
Dig
‘Cos I got my own world to live through
And I ain’t gonna copy you

White-collar conservatives flashing down the street
Pointing their plastic finger at me
They’re hoping soon my kind will drop and die
But I’m gonna wave my freak flag high
High

Wave on
Wave on

Falling mountains
Just don’t fall on me
Point on mister businessman
You can’t dress like me
Nobody know what I’m talking about
I’ve got my own life to live
I’m the one that’s gonna to die
When it’s time for me to die
So let me live my life
The way I want to

Sing on brother
Play on brother

Lyrics for the Day – Goin’ Up The Country

Seems about right for today.

th (1).jpg

I’m goin’ up the country
Come if you wanna go
I’m goin’ up the country
Come if you wanna go
I’m goin’ to some place
Where I’ve never been before
I’m goin’ I’m goin’
Where the water tastes like wine
I’m going
Where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water
Stay drunk all the time

I’m gonna leave this city
Got to get away
I’m gonna leave this city
Got to get away
All this fussin’ and fighting
Man, you know I sure can’t stay
Now baby pack your leaving trunk
You know we’ve got to leave today
Just exactly where we’re going I cannot say
But
We might even leave the U.S.A.
‘Cause there’s a brand new game that I wanna play

No use of you running
Or screaming and cryin’
‘Cause you’ve got a home as
Long as I’ve got mine

Lyrics for the Day – Baby Blue

This one’s on both the BABY and BLUE theme playlists

th (3).jpg

Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long my love
All that time without a word
Didn’t know you’d think that I’d forget
Or I’d regret
The special love I had for you
My baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think I’d do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you’d realize
That I would know
I would show
The special love I have for you
My baby blue

What can I do
What can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you
Show me the way
Don’t you know the times I’ve tried?

Guess that’s all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go
Take good care
Baby, let me know
Let it grow
The special love you have for me
My Dixie, dear

Lyrics for the Day -Cassidy

Classic Bob Weir – Let the words be yours, I’m done with mine…

th (2).jpg

I have seen where the wolf has slept by the silver stream
I can tell by the mark he left you were in his dream
Ah child of countless trees
Ah child of boundless seas

What you are
And what you’re meant to be
Speaks his name
Though you were born to me
Born to me
Cassidy

Lost now on the country miles in his Cadillac
I can tell by the way you smile he is rolling back
Come wash the nighttime clean
Come grow the scorched ground green

Blow the horn and tap the tambourine
Close the gap of the dark years in between
You and me
Cassidy

Quick beats in an icy heart
Catch colt draws a coffin cart
There he goes and now here she starts
Hear her cry

Flight of the seabirds
Scattered like lost words
Wield to the storm and fly

Fare thee well now
Let your life proceed by it’s own design
Nothing to tell now
Let the words be yours
I’m done with mine

Fare thee well now
Let your life proceed by it’s own design
Nothing to tell now
Let the words be yours
I’m done with mine

Lyrics for the Day – From the Cradle to the Grave

An all-time favorite artist and this isn’t an all-time favorite song of his but it seemed appropriate for the day

th (2).jpgth (1).jpg

Feeling like a ship out of the ocean
About to go aground on desert sands
Feeling like an eagle losing motion
Tired of flying
Ain’t no where to land
 
Every day’s all the same
Same old way
Never change
Going from the cradle to the grave
 
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so helpless
Always feeling like my hands are tied
Failure at most everything I’ve dealt with
Ruining most everything I’ve tried
 
Every day’s all the same
Same old ways
Never change
Going from the cradle to the grave
 
And every day’s all the same
Same always
Never change
Going from the cradle to the grave
 
Running for my life at every moment
Never having time to catch my breath
Sometimes I wish this crazy race were over
The thought of living scares me half to death
 
And every day’s all the same
Same always
Never change
Going from the cradle to the grave

Lyrics for the Day — Pink Balloon

This one just came out and will be on the COLORS playlist, maybe even the 2016 Greatest Hits

th (17).jpg

She walks around
With a pink balloon
And if you try to take it from her
Your end will come too soon

She dreams about
Her pink balloon
Carrying her higher and higher
Up to the moon

She ties it to her waist
She ties it to her wrist
And if you’re lucky she might let it go for you
And make a wish

First thing she wakes up
Pours herself a cup
Before she’s out the door
She stops to blow it up
Sometimes she carries it high
Sometimes she carries it low
People point at her
And say there she goes

She don’t worry about danger
She don’t worry about doom
And she don’t give a damn what you think
About her pink balloon

She walks around
With a pink balloon
And if you try to take it from her
Your end will come too soon

Pink balloon
She walks around
With a pink balloon
