عمو شلبی...

that ol'guitar

he sits there by the window

in that other world ... where he goes

reaching for his guitar

as he looks out at the snow

he picks it up gently

and he holds it... to his heart,

lord,I wish he'd hold me like he holds that ol'guitar.

 

he sings of magic mountains

as he looks up at the sky

like a bird who waits through winter

'till he's got the strengh to fly.

he's just across the room now

but we're worldss and worlds apart.

lord.I wish he'd touch me like he touches that ol'guitar.

that ol'guitar keeps calling him away to far off lands

'cross the silver sand and sparklin's seas.

and I almost think I'd rather watch him hold some other woman than to cling to somethings I can never be.

some sunny morning .. i'll wake up listening for his song,

I'll see the open window and I'll know he's finally gone.

whistling down some dusty highway flaggin down a car '

lord' I wish he'd take me where he takes that ol'guitar ,

I wish he loved me like he loves that ol'guitar.

the things I didn't say

I didn't say ,"don't do it,babe"
When she packed up to go .
I didn't say, "come back here.honey
And try with me once more".
And when she asked me if I loved her.
I just turned away.
She's gone,and now I'm hearing
all that I didn't say.

I didn't say" I'm sorry ,babe"
'Couse all we need is love and faith and time".
I? said, "if that's the way you want it,
I won't stand in your way".
She's gone,and now I'm hearing
all that I didn't say.

I didn't take her in my arms and kiss away her tears.
I didn't stay ," my life don't mean a thing if you ain't here".
i tought of all the many games I'd be free to play.
But all i do is listen to the things i didn't say.

I didn't say ."Take off your coat...
I'll make some coffee , and we'll talk".
I didn't say ,"The road away is such along and lonely endless walk".
I said,"Good-bye,goodluck, God bless you "
And she slipped away and left me here to live with all the things i didn't say.

I NEVER GOT TO KNOW HER

AND I remember her
on the streets of Newyork City
As I walked the night
Needing somplace warm to go .

As she passed me ,I said,
"Hey , there's snowflakes on your lashes"
And she laughed and said,
That isn't snow..."
she said ,"They're feather from a pillow God is shaking in the sky".
And she opened smiling lips to catch a snowflake blowing by.
And we both began to laugh and then I looked into her eues,
AND IT WAS WARM AGAIN.

But I never got to know her very well.
All we did was spend a little time.
You're waiting for a story--
But there's really none to tell.
She's just a passing shadow on my mind.
But I remember her
As we woke up warm toghether in her sunlit room.
And she said,"I'll help you pack".
And she sewed my shirt,
And I said ,"I'll stay forever!"
But she laughed and put some cookies in my sack.

She said,"leave a trail of cookie crumbs as you wolk throught the snow.
someday I'll follow after and find you where you go".
And I left her in her doorway but why I'll never know.
but I was younger then.

So, I never got to know her very well.
All we did was spend a little time.
You're waiting for a story--
But there's really none to tell.
She's just a passing shadow on my mind.


oh,You're waiting for a story--
But ther's really none to tell.

CLOUDY SKY

The moon , she is a pretty girl
who lives up in the stars
And that old cloud , he's a great old man
Who loves her from afar
He loves her from afar

When ladymoon smiles down on him
ol'cloud is all a -wonder
so he starts to sing to her
and that's what makes the thunder,
don't ya listen, baby,
that's what makes the thunder

love is just a cloudy sky
as far as I can see
and that ol'cloud up in the sky
he's got as much a chace in love as me

and some dry nights, she won't come out
when she hears him callin,
the tears come streamin on down his cheeks
and that's the rain a-fallin',
don't ya feel it baby,
that's the rain a-fallin'

love is just a cloudy sky
as far as I can see
and that ol'cloud up in the sky
he's got as much a chace in love as me

and when the night starts to get light
and he can see her goin'
he throws a kiss across the sky
and that's the wind a-blowin',
can't ya feel it honey,
that's the wind a-blowin;

love is just a cloudy sky
as far as I can see
and that ol'cloud up in the sky
he's got as much a chace in love as me
he got as much a chace in love as me

 

TELL ME

Tell me I'm clever,
Tell me I'm kind,
Tell me I'm talented,
Tell me I'm cute,
Tell me I'm sensitive,
Graceful & wise,
Tell me I'm perfect-
But tell me the truth
