LYRICS — She Took Off My Romeos…

I think I know what Romeos are — great David Lindley anyway

th 7 (1).jpeg

I was having a drink
Down at the bar
I was worried ’bout my image
I can’t wash my car
When a pretty little woman
Says Hey there Joe
Won’t you come along with me
I’ll take off your romeos

She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos

I lit up my pipe
We sat by the fire
It was there by the embers
I had no desire
To go back to the bar
And drink some Old Crow
I kept on my smoking jacket
She took of my romeos

She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
She took off my romeos
Oh that pretty little woman
She took off my romeos

The Lyrics Classics – Down to Seeds and Stems Again

th 7 (2).jpeg

I’m sittin alone
Saturday night
Watching the Late Late Show
A bottle of wine
Some cigarettes
I got no place to go
Well, I saw your other man today
He was wearing my brand new shoes
And I’m down to seeds and stems again too

Well, I met my old friend Bob today
From up in Bowling Green
He had the prettiest little gal
That I’d ever seen
But I couldn’t hide my tears at all
‘Cause she looked just like you
And I’m down to seeds and stems again too

Now everybody tells me
There’s other ways to get high
They don’t seem to understand
I’m too far gone to try
Now these lonely memories
They’re all I can’t lose
And I’m down to seeds and stems again too

Well my dog died just yesterday
And left me all alone
The finance company
Dropped by today
And repossessed my home
That’s just a drop in the bucket
Compared to losing you
And I’m down to seeds and stems again too

Got the down to seeds and stems again blues

Lyrics – Women in Rock – Show Some Emotion

th.jpeg

Show some emotion
Put expression in your eyes
Light up
If you’re feeling happy
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
 
Some people hurtin’
Someone choking up inside
Some poor souls dyin’
Too proud to say
They got no place to lie
And there’s people if they hear a joke
Can’t keep the laugh out of their eye
I said
Show some emotion
Put expression in your eye
Light up
If you’re feeling happy
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
 
Some people in love
But all they got’s a photograph
How can they get it
Too scared to open their mouth and ask
I said
Show some emotion
Put expression in your eye
Light up
If you’re feeling happy
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
 
Come on try
Learn to bleed
When you get a bad fall
Light up
Light up
Light up if it’s nice
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
 
I said
Show some emotion
Put expression in your eye
Light up
If you’re feeling happy
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
Come on try
Come on try
Come on try
Learn to bleed
When you get a bad fall
Light up
Light up
Light up if it’s nice
But if it’s bad then let those tears roll down
If it’s bad then let those tears roll down

Classic Songs – Lyrics All I Want

th (1).jpeg

I am on a lonely road and
I am traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling
Looking for something
What can it be
Oh I hate you some
I hate you some
I love you some
Oh I love you when I forget about me
I wanna be strong
I wanna laugh along
I wanna belong to the living
Alive, alive
I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive
Do you want
Do you want
Do you wanna dance with me baby
Do you wanna take a chance on
Maybe finding some sweet romance with me baby
Well come on

All I really really want is our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you too
All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you
I wanna talk to you
I wanna shampoo you
I wanna renew you again and again
Applause, applause
Life is our cause
When I think of your kisses my mind see-saws
Do you see
Do you see
Do you see how you hurt me baby
So I hurt you too
Then we both get so blue

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy
The greed is the unraveling
It’s the unraveling
And it undoes all the joy that could be
I wanna have fun
I wanna shine like the sun
I wanna be the one that you want to see
I wanna knit you a sweater
Wanna write you a love letter
I wanna make you feel better
I wanna make you feel free
Hm hm hm, hm
Wanna make you feel all free
I wanna make you feel all free

Classic Lyrics — Chestnut Mare

This is the song and album that got me into country-rock back in early college. It became alt-country and is now called Americana, but here’s where it started.

th 4 (2).jpeg

Always alone
Never with a herd
Prettiest mare I’ve ever seen
You’ll have to take my word
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
 
Well I was up on Stony Ridge
After this chestnut mare
I’d been chasin’ her for weeks
Oh I’d catch a glimpse of her every once in a while
Takin’ her meal
Bathin’
Fine lady
This one day I happened to be real close to her
And I saw her standin’ over there
So I snuck up on her nice and easy
Got my rope out
And I flung it in the air
 
I’m gonna’ catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
 
Well I got her
And I’m pullin’ on her
But she’s pullin’ back
Like this mule goin’ up a ladder
And I take a choice and I jump right up on her
Damned if I don’t land right on top of her
And she takes off
Runnin’ up on to the ridge
Higher than I’ve ever been before
She’s runnin’ along just fine
Til’ she stopped and somethin’ spooked her
It’s a sidewinder all coiled and ready to strike
She doesn’t know what to do for a second but then
She jumps off the edge
Me holdin’ on
 
Above the hills
Higher than eagles were gliding
Suspended in the sky
Over the moon
Straight for the sun we were riding
My eyes were filled with light
Behind us black walls
Below us a bottomless canyon
Floating with no sound
Gulls far below
Seemed to be suddenly rising
Exploding all around
 
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
 
And we were fallin’
Down this crevice
About a mile down that sink
I look down and I see this red thing below us
Comin’ up real fast and it’s our reflection in this little pool of water
About six feet wide
And one foot deep
And we’re fallin’ down right though it
We hit and we splashed it dry
That’s when I lost my hold
She got away
But I’m gonna’ try to get her again some day
 
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I’ll give her my brand
And we’ll be friends for life
She’ll be just like a wife
I’m going to catch that horse
I’m going to catch that horse
I’m going to catch that horse if I can
I’m going to catch that horse if I can

Lyrics — All-time Greats

Heard in the streets in London in the summer of ’67, seen close up in college, and used the lyrics for college graduation yearbook statement.

th 4 (3).jpeg

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
The crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray
 
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale
 
She said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might have just as well been closed
 
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale
 
She said I’m home on shore leave
Though in truth we were at sea
So I took her by the looking glass
And forced her to agree
Saying you must be the mermaid
Who took Neptune for a ride
But she smiled at me so sadly
That my anger straightway died
 
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale
 
If music be the food of love
Then laughter is its queen
And likewise if behind is in front
Then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
Seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
And attacked the ocean bed
 
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale
