All Covered Up

One day in the garden
Among them woody plants
A cunning serpent
Makes a very clever plan
Hanging there in the garden
A red apple bright
Will it give us the power
To know wrong from right?

I don’t know why we always try to be…
I don’t know why we always try to be…
I don’t know why we always try to be…
All covered up

One day in the garden
Can you hear the owner shout
Where are my tenants
Why do they shut me out
Hiding there in the bushes
Man and wife holding hands
Can they keep out the daylight
In the leaves of an ivy plant

One day while I’m walking
A strange thing catches sight
Lying there on the sidewalk
A lip-stained Player’s Light
Lungs filled with a blue haze
Last puff and she flicks it away
Doesn’t she look handsome
With red lip gloss today?

Amazing Grace (Peaceful Easy Feeling)

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

I’ve got a peaceful, easy feeling
I know You won’t let me down
‘Cause I’m already standing … on the ground

‘Tis grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many a danger, toil and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

Whiskey In The Jar

As I was going over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was countin’
I first produced me pistol and then produced me rapier
Saying stand and deliver for you are the bold deceiver

Musha rig um du rum da
Whack fol the daddy O
Whack fol the daddy O
There’s whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money it made pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

I went up to me chamber all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels and sure it was no wonder
But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water
And sent for Captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

‘Twas early in the morning before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise Captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol for she stole away my rapier
But I couldn’t shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken

And if anyone can aid me ‘tis my brother in the army
If I could learn of his station in Cork or Killarney
And if he’d come and join me we’d go rovin through Kilkenny
I’m sure he’d treat me fairer than me own sportin’ Jenny

There’s some that takes delight in the carriages a rollin’
And some that takes delight in the hurley or the bowlin’
But I takes delight in the juice of the barley
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

Lonely Man

A lonely man I know often stays out late
No matter where he’s been he’ll turn and slam the gate
A lonely man Lord he wants to let it out
Kills the pain with another drink that begs to let him shout

I don’t want to fake it I don’t want to run
Just want the one inside to be the real one
I don’t want to fake it I don’t want to run
Just want the one inside to be the real one

A lonely man I know shoulders bent with guilt
An ugly world lets him down walls that he has built
A lonely man I know oh there’s hard luck all around
Know’s the peace he’s looking for ain’t the one he’s found

Who is the real one, what is his name?

A lonely man I know eyes filled with shame
Dying to hear what you’ve done covers every stain
A lonely man I know Lord I wonder what he’ll do
Oh give me strength each day to love him as you do

Maybe love will come back…
Maybe love will come back…
Come back, come back…

You've Got Nothing

People pass you with a sigh
Not a glance as they walk on by
Feeling worthless on your own
Life’s nothing but an unpaid loan

You got nothing
Nothing to worry about
You got nothing
Nothing to bring you down

Mother told you long ago
Work hard you’ll make it sure
Many days spent waiting in line
Now its gone can’t go back in time

Mr. Jones and his pretty wife
Looking great at 45
Sees the doc one day last fall
Two months left for the final call

Are you lonely out of luck
Maybe feeling a little hard up
Everybody can you feel the love
It’s coming down from above

Make You Mine

I want to make you mine
Take you away from that five and dime
It makes me happy to see you smile
I want to make you mine

Come on baby get on board
I want to make you mine

I want to make you mine
Don’t you be so serpentine
It makes me happy to know the truth
I want to make you mine

I want to make you mine
Don’t give me your pantomime
It makes me happy to hear you say
I‘ll be yours and you’ll be mine

In the Park

Walking in the park just you and me
Listen to the birds singing merrily
A day so warm a lovely afternoon
How could I know it would end so soon

And we said
I love you and you love me together we’ll live for eternity
I love you and you love me together we’ll live for eternity

Looking closely it was plain to see
A cloudy horizon ‘tween her and me
Storms gather quickly on sunny days
As rain starts falling birds fly away

You left me standing by a tree, near the beach
You left me standing by the beach, near the tree
Did you really ever love me

Walking in the park just you and me
Listen to the birds singing merrily…

Na, na, na….
I love you and you love me together we’ll live for eternity
I love you and you love me together we’ll live for eternity

Make a Change

Oh brother you looking for a change
Maybe this will rattle your cage
Someone to help you turn the page
To show you a better way

Oh sister it’s only life you say
So why not waste it away
Live the moment no worry today
I’ll make that change another day

Make a change we all want to
Make a change we all need to
Make a change it’s time to change
Ohh.. today

Long is the road and hard the way
‘Bout that make no mistake
Need a hand do not delay
Reach out don’t hesitate

Long is the road hard the way
‘Bout that make no mistake
Need a hand do not delay
Reach out oh no don’t hesitate

Make a change, make a change…

Rise Up

Listen up you people we cannot escape
Talking ‘bout a glory one that won’t fade
Strength for the weary power for the weak
A promise of hope for all that seek

Yeah, we’ll rise up whoa…
Yeah, we’ll rise up (rise up) whoa…
Yeah, we’ll rise up on the wings of an eagle

Come closer my brother got a word today
‘Bout a man named Jesus, he’s coming back someday
Lifted to glory a long time ago
He’s coming back soon and everyone will know

Yeah, we’ll rise up (rise up) whoa…
Yeah, we’ll rise up whoa…
Yeah, we’ll rise up (rise up) on the wings of an eagle

Sixteen Tons

Some people say a man’s made outta’ mud
A poor man’s made outta’ muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind’s that’s weak and a back that’s strong

You load sixteen tons, what do ya get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me ‘cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen ton of number nine coal
And the store boss said well bless my soul

I was born one mornin’ it was drizzlin’ rain
Fightin’ and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in a canebrake by an ol’ mama lion
Cain’t no high toned woman make me walk the line

If you see me comin’ better step aside
A lotta men didn’t, a lotta men died
One fist of iron the other of steel
If the right one don’t getcha then the left one will

Meet Me In The River

Nai, Nai, ni, Nai, Nai, Nai…

You know I’m a preacher man with passion, wine and bread
I call the people of the town down to the river bed
You know the Lord forgives and that he lives in you today
So meet me in the river I’ll wash your sins away

Wash your sins away… meet me in the river
Wash your sins away… meet me in the river

You think me a prophet I wear a camel for a dress
I eat honey and bugs I am a voice crying in the wilderness
But I play second fiddle in the middle of the lake
So meet me in the river I’ll wash your sins away

Written into history are miracles of mine
I have walked on water and turned that water into wine
But there is one miracle that blows them all away
So meet me in the river I’ll wash your sins away

Wash your sins away… meet me in the river
Wash your sins away… meet me in the river
If you want to I will meet you, trust in me I’ll set you free
If you want to I will meet you , trust in me I’ll set you free, hey

Nai, Nai, ni, Nai, Nai, Nai
Nai, Nai, ni, Nai, Nai, Nai … meet me in the river oh yeah, oh oh
