Lyrics

Don't Look Around

Don't look around 'cause I'm never comin' back.
High time, you saw the last of me.
You know I was a wand'rer, I'd forgotten where to go,
I had no place to lay my head or rest my heavy load.
Don't look around 'cause I'm never comin' back.
High time, you saw the last of me.

Lord, how she changed my mind.
Lord she changed my life.

Now I'm workin' all day long, singin' for my food,
Baby, you know that I've got everything I need.
I've given all I can, the rest belongs to me,
Time was it didn't matter just who I had to be.
Don't look around 'cause I'm never comin' back.
High time, you saw the last of me.

Lord, how she changed my mind.
Lord, she changed my life.

I got another woman now, don't need you anymore.
Now I think I'll turn my back an' walk away from you.
We're livin' in the country doin' everything we please,
I don't want you comin' 'round, stirrin' up a breeze.
Don't look around 'cause I'm never comin' back.
High time, you saw the last of me.

Lord, how she changed my mind.
Lord, she changed my life.

Nantucket Sleighride

Goodbye, little Robin-Marie,
Don't try, followin' me.
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie,
'Cause you know, I'm comin' home soon.

My ship's, leavin' on three year tour,
Next tide, will take us from shore.
Wind-laced, gather in sail and spray,
On a search, for the mighty sperm whale.

Fly your willow branches,
Wrap your body 'round my soul,
Lay down your reeds an' drums on my soft sheets,
There are years behind us reaching,
To the place where hearts are beating,
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.

Starbuck's, sharpenin' his harpoon,
Black man's, playin' his tune,
An old salt's, sleepin' his watch away,
He'll be drunk again, before noon.

Three years, sailin' on bended knee,
We found, no whales in the sea,
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie,
'Cause we'll be, in sight of land soon.

Fly your willow branches,
Wrap your body 'round my soul,
Lay down your reeds an' drums on my soft sheets,
There are years behind us reaching,
To the place where hearts are beating,
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.

You Can't Get Away

I can see you baby from a thousand miles away,
And I know you love me, no matter what you say.
I can tell you baby, where you belong,
By my side at the end of the day, when the work is done.

I can tell when you been sleepin' all day in bed,
And I know what drives you, out of your head.
I can feel your heart beatin' through a cememt wall,
An' I know you'll come runnin', when ever I call.

Can't fool me (no, no, no)
Can't fool a man who's been around,
You can't leave me (no, no, no)
Without me knowin' where you're goin'
Can't get away

Oh, I can touch, every breath you take,
And I know with me you can't make no mistake.
Just like butter on a hot summer's day,
I can melt you baby an' leave you that way.

If your heart was a diamond and your love was gold,
You'd be a ring on my finger, you don't need to be told,
That it ain't no use tryin' to cheat on me,
'Cause everybody knows, where you gotta' be.

Can't fool me (no, no, no)
Can't fool a man who's been around,
You can't leave me (no, no, no)
Without me knowin' where you're goin'
Can't get away

Tired Angels

With your shoulders to the big wheel
You work your fingers to the bone
Taking pleasures in the future
Work it down and bring it on

Walk around into the sundown
Looking for an honest man
Gentle people seeing too much
Make it to me once again

Angels, tired angels
Tired down inside their shoes
All wanting grace they live again
in the rythem lines
on the King of Gondor's face

The children, little children
Gentle leaving to the wars
They've found their place and live again
in the rythem lines
on the King of Gondor's face

Sinking down into the lame word
Overflowing into sorrow
Praying for another ceasfire
Saturated with desire

Standing up to all the brave men
Laughing hollow with the day's end
Walking back and give a handshake
This is just another bad break

Angels, tired angels
Tired down inside their shoes
All wanting grace they live again
in the rythem lines
on the King of Gondor's face

The children, little children
Gentle leaving to the wars
They've found their place and live again
in the rythem lines
on the King of Gondor's face

The Animal trainer And The Toad

For many a year, I was so confused,
Didn't know what to play.
But then I met a man, who picked up his horn,
An' showed us just what, to say.

He was skinny an' lean, an' he kept his nose clean,
An' he knew, how to write, them tunes,
Then came a day, we started to play,
An' then we conquered the moon.

I'm in a band, a rock an' roll band
I'm in a band, yeah, yeah.

We called him Beethoven, an' then we showed 'im,
Exactly where we wanted to go,
So we started a band, and toured all the land,
A rackin' in all, that dough.

We smoked a few cigs, an' played a few gigs,
An' never did delayed a one,
We covered the states, an' hit the great lakes,
An' boy did we have us, some fun.

I'm in a band, a rock an' roll band
I'm in a band, yeah, yeah.

I'm in a band, a rock an' roll band
I'm in a band, yeah, yeah.

We had an idea, so we put in in gear,
An' soon we were out on the road.
We did it to play, they started to say,
The animal trainer and the toad.

I'm in a band, a rock an' roll band
I'm in a band, yeah, yeah.

My Lady

I see her sailing on her silver wings,
With hands that move like little trees.
Alive and bending in my raging storm,
To a heartbeat, my lady lives for me.
To a heartbeat, my lady lives for me.

Out of the country to my city life,
All wrapped in dreams she wears like pearls,
She dances to the music that I play for her,
And my lady is the softness in my world.
And my lady is the softness in my world.

Comin' back, from the Mountain,
My Lady waits for me. My Lady waits for me.

In paint and ribbons and her coloured shells,
All she imagines for my days,
And weaves a life that is feeling good for me,
And my lady, hears every note I play.
And my lady, hears every note I play.

My rooms are filled with all she's made by hand,
My songs are filled with all her rhymes,
My heart is filled with the work that we've been doin'
And the children we'll be havin' all in good time.
And the children we'll be havin' all in good time.

Comin' back, from the Mountain,
My Lady waits for me. My Lady waits for me.

Travellin' In The Dark

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

What you gonna do when you can't seem to understand?
How ya' gonna feel when your woman's with another man?

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

What makes you think that you're gonna ever understand?
What's goin' on in the mind of another man?

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

Travelln' in the dark,
Can't see a thing, Travelln' in the dark.

What you gonna do when you can't seem to understand?
How ya' gonna feel when your woman's with another man?

The Great Train Robbery

Do you remember, the great train robbery
How it all happened, back in '63
When Johnny Rainbow, took his band of brave men
Went down to the crossing to meet that train
When they were sure the time was right

Fourteen men, to share seven million
Bound to steal, steal it all and run
Johnny wanted, to keep it peaceful
But Wilson cried and 'though it might have died
You know they had to turn and run

The life of a thief, is all bits and pieces
It's out on the street, and all that it teaches
The look in the wind, and taking a gamble
The wages of sin, are too hot to handle

Look him in the eye, he takes what he finds
Look him in the eye, yeah he's marking time
Look him in the eye, his life's on the line

No one knows, where the Rainbow is hiding
He's been sure, not to tip his hand
He is still living, on the fruits of that bloody day
They caught some of his friends, they got some of his money
But they never could catch that man

The affairs of that night, will live forever
As the law was breeched, in the heart of a thief
Many legends, still declare that tragic day
How the iron horse fell, oh I know so well
I was a party to all that grief
