Lyrics

Country Road

Goin' down that country road,
Leavin' behind that heavy load.
Gettin' away from the city life,
Society causes too many fights.

Down my country road.
Down my country road, oh.
Down my country road.
Down my country road, road, road.

Too much killin' and too many wars,
Women and children must be shuttin' their doors.
Protect your country and for this you must die,
They take your life but they don't tell you why.

Down my country road.
Down my country road, oh.
Down my country road.
Down my country road, road, road

All You've Got Is Money

I can't tell ya' how to run your life,
To get along with one another.
Everybody knows what's wrong and what's right,
But, you can't trust your own brother, yeah.

Everybody wants to be your friend,
All the chicks, they call you honey.
But don't trust them 'till the very end,
'Cause all they're after is your money.

All they want is all your money.
All they're after is your money.
... is your money.
All they want is,
All your money.
All they want is ...

Don't it scare ya',
When they take such good care of ya',
And all you've got is money?
Before they fool ya',
Please, let me school ya',
All you've got is money.

Comfort Me

I was found after losing my way,
Safe and sound after many a day.
I was lost in a world of madness,
Please take me from all of this sadness.

Comfort me, in whatever I do.
Comfort me, and I'll comfort you too.
Follow me, 'cause I'm trying to love you.

Can't figure out what's wrong with my head,
I used to think I wish I was dead.
You took me from all of that sorrow,
My future's bright, I can't wait 'till tomorrow.

Comfort me, in whatever I do.
Comfort me, and I'll comfort you too.
Follow me, 'cause I'm trying to love you.

There ain't nothin' to it, anyone can do it,
It's easy when you're feelin' right.
I know that I feel good, and I know that you should,
Stop not doin' what you know is right.

Don't know what it is that's causing this feeling,
What ever it is I'm touching the ceiling.
I won't let go of this beautiful sound,
I once was lost but now I am found.

Comfort me, in whatever I do.
Comfort me, and I'll comfort you too.
Follow me, 'cause I'm trying to love you.

I just don't want to be your friend, yeah.
You can trust me 'till the very end, yeah.
I know just what I'm talkin' about, yeah, yeah.
I'm talkin 'bout the love that you can't live without, no, no.

Feelin' Allright

Seems I got to have a change in scene,
'Cause every night I have the strangest dreams.
Imprisoned by the way things used to be, yeah,
Left here on my own or so it seems.
I got to leave before I start to scream,
'Cause somebody locked the door and took the key.

Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.
Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.

Baby, you sure took me on one big ride,
And, even now I sit and wonder why.
Then, when I think of you, I start to cry,
I know I can't get upset and I must keep dry.
I got to stop believin' in all your lies,
'Cause I got too much to do before I die.

Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.
Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.

Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.
Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.

Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.
Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

I've been waitin' for such, such a long, long time,
To tell you all about these feelings of mine.
Something tells me there just has to be a better day,
And that's why I came here to say ...

Just let me take it, my mind ca't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

Growing up, I was free in my childhood years,
And now they tell me I can wash away my tears.
These tears explain the way, it's the way that I feel,
Because the freedom they give me is real.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it

I want freedom, the kind that they promised me,
Just for livin' in this country.
I want the freedom, the kind that makes me feel strong,
But, let me tell you, something is wrong.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.

I Can Feel Him In The Morning

Child 1
He kind of started all the plants growing, and he started people.
Well, I guess he's kind of big and fat.
Child 2
He can see us wherever we do ... whatever we do. He has such powerful eyes --
he has to have millions and thousands and billions. And he can still see us when we're bad.
Child 3
He could be sitting on the table right now, but you can't see him.
Child 4
He can't be everywhere at once doing everything for everybdy. Everybody can't get what they want.
Child 5
Well, his job is to make us good and to make us happy and make us parents happy.
Child 6
Good is the right thing and bad is the wrong thing.
Child 7
When I'm good my mother never yells at me, when I'm bad she does.
Child 8
Good means to obey your mother and father, to do what the teacher says -- the things right.
I feel miserable when I'm ... when I'm bad, I feel miserable on the inside but, on the outside,
I just feel like I ... I feel now.
Child 9
I think ... um, um ... there are more people that are bad than there are good.
And, um ... if you're good, you'll live forever. And, if you're bad, you'll die when you die.
And, if you're bad, you'll die when you die.
And, if you're bad, you'll die when you die.

Take me down to the water, let me feel it run over me.
Let me feel the pain and the coldness, the loneliness that there must be.
Whoa, can't you see their dreams, as they go drifting by?
Whoa, can't you see their faces, and their tear-soaked eyes?

I can feel him in the morning, I can feel him in the evening too.
I can hear him in the morning, tellin' me what I got to do.
Got to make a new world, ought to make the old one right.
I can see him in the morning, I can see him in the stars at night.

Take me out to the battlefield, let me hear the shells flying by.
Let me hear the sound of the cannons, let me hear them scream and cry.
Whoa, can't you hear their dreams, as they tumble to the blood-soaked ground?
Whoa, hear them scream for shelter, from the world they never found.

I can feel him in the morning, I can feel him in the evening too.
I can hear him in the morning, tellin' me what I got to do.
Got to make a new world, ought to make the old one right.
I can see him in the morning, I can see him in the stars at night.

Gimme Shelter


Oooo, a storm is threatenin', my very life today.
If I don't get some shelter, oh, I'm gonna' fade away.

War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

Oooo, see the fire sweeping, up every street today.
Burns like a red-coal carpet, mad bull lost it's way.

War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

Rape, murder, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
Rape, murder, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
Rape, murder, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

Oooo, a storm is threatenin', my very life today.
If I don't get some shelter, oh, I'm gonna' fade away.

War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

I said a love sister, it's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away.
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away.

War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.

Love sister, it's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away.
Love sister, it's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
Love sister, it's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away.
War children, it's just a shot away, it's just a shot away.
Love sister, it's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away.
