NEW SOLID BLACK lyrics

Forget About Love  
(words and music John Elwood Cook)

 I'm sorry for myself I'm sorry for you

You've got a reason, being sorry too

I'm sorry for myself at the end of the day

You got no reason but you hate me anyway

 

Forget about...

Forget About Love

Forget about...

For.............get about

Forget about Love-uvh

Forget About Love

 

I'm sorry for myself I got screwed

You got no reason to be in a mood

I'm sorry for myself what I gotta pay

You got no reason but you hate me anyway

 

Forget about...

Forget About Love

Forget about...

For.............get about

Forget about Love-uvh

Forget About Love

 

I'm sorry for myself what can I say

I'm sorry for everything I let slip away

I'm sorry for myself I got screwed

You got no reason to be in a mood.

 

CHORUS

 


  

Drive Me Crazy  
(words and music Joe Bouchard)

 

Driving through the rain and feeling no pain

Dreams of the days on the border

Traffic is heavy as I tune the radio

A lot on my mind, my batteries running low.

Going the distance for coming around

Looking down the road at a dream I found.

 

You Drive Me Crazy

When I'm cruising on down the road

My mind's on fire

And my brain is in overload.

 

The wind was howling as thunder rolled

Burning inside from a life on the road.

You might feel dreams pass you by.

Come on down from that carpet ride

Somewhere in the world there's a rainbow sky

It might be gone in the blink of an eye.

 

You Drive Me Crazy

When I'm cruising on down the road

My mind's on fire

And my brain is in overload.

I said you Drive Me Crazy

When I'm cruising on down the road

My mind's on fire

And my brain is in overload.

 

BREAK

 

When the sky is dark and the ground is wet

Don't you worry and you don't fret

The night may come and your day is late

You're the master of your own fate.

Somewhere in the world there's a rainbow sky

It might be gone in the blink of an eye.

 

You Drive Me Crazy

When I'm cruising on down the road

My mind's on fire

And my brain is in overload.

I said you Drive Me Crazy

When I'm cruising on down the road

My mind's on fire

And my brain is in overload.

 

I said you Drive Me Crazy

 

I said my mind's on fire

 


 

Love Takes Heart 
(words and music by John Elwood Cook)

 

You and I knew the years we should have been together

You and I knew the years we knew from the start

The way all that goes and it goes on forever

Love Takes Heart

 

Love Takes Heart

Maybe yours and mine

Love Takes Heart

we may never find

A way to stay apart

Love Takes Heart

 

You and I knew the years the tears and the sadness

You and I knew the years but we played our parts

The way all that goes and it goes on to madness

Love Takes Heart

 

Love Takes Heart

Maybe yours and mine

Love Takes Heart

we may never find

A way to stay apart

Love Takes Heart

 

You and I knew the years we should have been together

You and I knew the years we knew from the start

 

 

Love Takes Heart

Maybe yours and mine

Love Takes Heart

we may never find

A way to stay apart

Love Takes Heart

Love Takes Heart

Love Takes Heart

Love Takes Heart

 


 

Memorial Day   

(words and music by John Elwood Cook)

When the long winter's ended

And the snow melts off with the sun

She remembers a soldier who said goodbye and was gone.

She stood on the platform and waved away down the track

She remembers a soldier boy one who never ever came back.

 

She said play me a sad song

Play it straight from your heart

Play it over and over and over 'til the feeling starts.

Carry me back to days of love in the dark. 

Play a sad song for lovers who never wanted to part.

 

But the rain came down

The flag flew and bugles played

Above the white crosses

On Memorial Day.

 

When the soft April wind blows I'll be back he said

When the river melts and the ice flows under the bridge

When the soft April wind blows I'll be back to you my love

When the far off snow of wintertime melts off of the ridge.

 

But the rain came down

The flag flew and bugles played.   [super triplets]

Above the white crosses

On Memorial Day.   (F/C, C)

 

She said play me a sad song play it straight from your heart

Play it over and over and over 'til the feeling starts.

Carry me back to the days of love in the dark

Play a sad song for lovers who never wanted to part.

Play a sad song for lovers who never wanted to part.

 

But the rain came down

and the flag flew and bugles played

Above the white crosses

On Memorial Day.

The rain came down

the flag flew and bugles played.    [super triplets]

Above the white crosses

On Memorial Day.   (F----F, C)

 


 

Last Call  
(words and music Dave Van Ronk)

  

And so we've had another night

of poetry and poses,

and each man knows he'll be alone

when the sacred ginmill closes.

 

And so well drink the final glass

each to his joy and sorrow

and hope the numbing drink will last

til opening tomorrow.

 

And when we stumble back again

like paralytic dancers

each knows the question he must ask

and each man knows the answer.

 

And so well drink the final drink

that cuts the brain in sections

where answers do not signify

and there aren't any questions.

 

I broke my heart the other day.

It will mend again tomorrow.

If I'd been drunk when I was born

I'd be ignorant of sorrow.

 

And so well drink the final toast

that never can be spoken:

Here's to the heart that is wise enough

to know when its better off broken.

Light Years of Love

(music and lyrics by Helen Wheels and Joe Bouchard)

When we met it was a white hot star
The speed of light between two hearts
It felt like love, it sounds bizarre
But in your eyes I could see so far

 

Baby baby shouldn't know no fear
Was it an angel who brought us here
Old old songs, but the love goes on
Changing life into a song

 

Into light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love, of love

 

Our love is like the shining sea
In salty foam, we can feel so free
Caress the night with our cool skin
In your arms I can be anything

 

We got light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love, of love

 

SOLO and REPEAT Chorus with Mod.

 


 

O Jim

(music and lyrics by Helen Wheels and Joe Bouchard)

 

We all know a man needs protection

Somebody took a shot a me in the dark

Some young punk said my number was up

One lone shot was all I needed

I copped a piece, had a couple of drinks

Couldn't get what I really needed

 

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Don't know why you do these things

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Will I ever be set free Oh, Oh no.

 

Up to my baby, the woman I love

So hot and crazy the pressure built up

Oh how we argued I never felt, 

I never meant to shoot My loved one

I shot my baby, then I shot her again

Couldn't get what I really needed

 

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Don't know why you do these things

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Will I ever be set free Oh, Oh no.

 

There're gonna give me 25 years

I'd rather take my belt and hang up my fears

Ain't much of a life, I see myself

One long ride That's all I want now

Whatever happens never forget

Never forget, never forget

 

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Don't know why I do these things

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Will I ever be set free 

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Don't know why I do these things

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim

Will I ever be set free 

O Jim, poor Jim, O Jim
