SC,

I am not the Show Host, but I think this is what you requested.

Bob Seegar and The Silver Bullet.


OLD TIME ROCK AND ROLL
Bob Seeger


Just take those old records off the shelf
I sit and listen to them by my self
Today’s music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock and roll

Don't try to take me to a disco
You can't even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I'll be late for the door
Still like that old time rock and roll

Just give me old time rock and roll
That kind of music really soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
Just give me old time rock and roll


Don't want to listen to a tango
Just give me blues and some funky old soul
There’s only one sure way to get me to go
Just give me old time rock and roll

Call me a relic call me what you will
Say I'm old fashion say I'm over the hill
Today’s music don't have the same soul
Just give me old time rock and roll

Just give me old time rock and roll
That kind of music really soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
Just give me old time rock and roll

I would like a little Leonard Cohen. Hallelujah please.

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

There was a time you'd let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

How 'bout some Indigo Girls with Hope Alone:

Let's not drag this out, everything's in motion
Though I've only ever loved you kind and with devotion
I remember when I met you and even from the start
I thought one day you'd probably just come home and break my heart

It's funny what you know and still go on pretending
With no good evidence you'll ever see that happy ending
You were looking for your distance and sensing my resistance you had to do your will

I had to learn the hard way
We were just an empty dream too big for hope alone to fill

I know I'm a dreamer, so I'll give you that
Still I hope I'm more than just a place you laid your hat
You're a land of secrets, its only citizen
And though I paid my dues I was never allowed in

And so I am a stranger but especially today
As I get sad and lonely and you get your way
You were looking for your distance and sensing my resistance you had to do your will

I had to learn the hard way
We were just an empty dream too big for hope alone to fill

Holding out for change I know we never stood a chance
So I could only wait and watch you slip right through my hands
You were looking for your distance and sensing my resistance you had to do your will

I had to learn the hard way
We were just an empty dream too big for hope alone to fill

How about some old Radiohead? For J. who lurks.

Thinking About You

Been thinking about you
Your records are here
Your eyes are on my wall
Your teeth are over there
But I'm still no one
And you're a star
What do you care?

Been thinking about you
And there's no rest
Should I still love you
Still see you in bed
But I'm playing with myself
What do you care?
When the other men are far far better

All the thing's you've got
All the things you need
Who bought you cigarettes?
Who bribed the company to come and see you honey?

Been thinking about you
So how can you sleep
These people aren't your friends
They're paid to kiss your feet
They don't know what I know
And why should you care
When I'm not there

Been thinking about you
And there's no rest
Should I still love you
Still see you in bed
But I'm playing with myself
What do you care?
When I'm not there

All the things you've got
That you don't ever need
All the things you've got
That you wont ever see
I've bled and I'd bleed to please you

Been thinking about you

In a cynical mood for reasons I don't need to say. So I would like to hear What if God was One of Us? by Joan Osborne.

If God had a name
What would it be?
And would it call it to his face
If you were faced with him
And in all his glory
What would you ask him?
If you just had one question

Yeah yeah God is great
Yeah yeah God is good
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God has a face
What would it look like?
And would you want to see
And if seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints and all the prophets

And yeah yeah God is great
Yeah yeah God is good
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

Trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
Except for the Pope maybe in Rome

Yeah yeah God is great
Yeah yeah God is good
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home

Like a holln' rollin' stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home

Nobody callin' on the phone
Except for the Pope maybe in Rome...

FOOL IN THE RAIN ~ Led Zeppelin

Oh, baby

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining
Like a star that can't wait for a night
I hate to think I've been blinded baby
Why can't I see you tonight
And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin'
And the thrill of your touch gives me fright
And I'm shaking so much, really yearning
Why don't you show up, make it all right, yeah, it's all right, all right

And if you promised you'd love so completely
And you said you would always be true
You swore that you would never leave me, baby
What ever happened to you
And you thought it was only in movies
As you wish all your dreams would come true, hey
It ain't the first time believe me, baby
I'm standin' here feeling blue, blue
Ha, yeah, I'm blue, hoh, baby

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner
I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown
Another ten minutes no longer
And then I'm turning around, 'round
The clock on the wall's moving slower
Oh, my heart it sinks to the ground
And the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found, found
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found
Ohhhh, that I found

Hey babe

Oooh, hand that ticks on the clock
Just don't seem to stop
When I'm thinking it over

Oooh, tired of the light
I just don't seem to find
Have you wait, get away

Whoa oooh, I see it in my dreams
But I just don't seem to be with you
You I gotta get it all
Gotta get it all, gotta get it all
I've got to get all

(Guitar Solo)

Ooh, now my body is starting to quiver
And the palms of my hands getting wet, ohh
I've got no reason to doubt you baby
It's all a terrible mess
An' I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, ohhhhhh yeah
Hey now, ohhhhhh-hoh

Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love, hey now
Light of the love, hey now
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found

A bit of a downer after Lucky's Fool there, but I need me some Mazzy Star.

Flowers In December

Before I let you down again
I just want to see you in your eyes
I would have taken everything out on you
I only thought you could understand

They say every man goes blind in his heart
And they say everybody steals somebody's heart away
And I got nothing more to say about it
Nothing more than you would me

Send me your flowers, of your december
Send me your dreams, of your candy wine
I got just one thing I can't give you
Just one more thing of mine

They say every man goes blind in his heart
They say everybody steals somebody's heart away
And I've been wondering why you let me down
And I been taking it all for granted



*sigh*

It's the voice that sucks me in. Damned hypnotic.

XTC's 1000 Umbrellas for anyone who's ever been dumped.

One thousand umbrellas
Upturned couldn't catch all the rain
That drained out of my head
When you said we were
Over and over I cried
'Til I floated downstream
To a town they call
Misery oh oh misery
Misery oh oh misery

And one million teacups
I bet couldn't hold all the wet
That fell out of my eyes
When you fell out with me
Now I'm crawling the wallpaper
That's looking more like a roadmap
To misery oh oh misery

How can you smile and forecast
Weather's getting better
And you'll soon forget her
If you let the sunshine come through
How can you smile and forecast
Weather's getting better
If you never let a girl rain all over you
And just when I thought that my vista was golden in hue
One thousand umbrellas opened to spoil the view

One million salt seas
Recalled from school atlas
Alas would be filled to the brim
Sunny Jim couldn't jump it
How can I be pleased
When I'm handed the keys
To a town they call Misery
Oh oh Misery

So with a mop and a bucket
I'll just say forget her
And carry on sweeping up
Where I've been weeping
The Jesters will creep in
To strike down the newly crowned Monarch
Of Misery oh oh Misery

How can you smile and forecast
Weather's getting better
And you'll soon forget her
If you let the sunshine come through
How can you smile and forecast
Weather's getting better
If you never let a girl rain all over you
Just when I thought that my skies were a June July blue
One thousand umbrellas opened
Two thousand umbrellas opened
Ten thousand umbrellas opened to spoil the view

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can
Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

"It's All Wrong, But It's All Right" ~ Dolly (again, lol.)

Hello, are you free tonight?
I like your looks, I love your smile..
Could I use you for a while?
It's all wrong, but it's all right..

The amber sunset glow has died,
My needs are very much alive...
Is it okay if I stop by?
It's all wrong but it's all right.

It's all wrong but it's all right.
Just close your eyes and hold me tight.
Tell me sexy lovin' lies...
It's all wrong, but it's all right.

It may be wrong if we make love..
But I just need someone so much.
And who knows, it might last for life..
It's all wrong, but it's all right.

It's all wrong but it's all right,
Just close your eyes and hold me tight,
Tell me sexy lovin' lies...
It's all wrong.... but it's all right.

It's all wrong, but it's all right,
Just close your eyes and fantasize ..
Tell me sexy lovin' lies..
It's all wrong, but it's all right.

Good call on the Hallelujah Rgraham. I think now we'll have a bit of Kim Richey for all of us who are feeling a bit out of synch with their lives.

No, I'd rather walk a windy road.
Rather know the things I know.
See the world with my own eye.
No regrets, no looking back, no good byes.
No good byes.

Someday, I'll go, where there ain't no rain or snow,
Till then, I'll travel alone.
And I'll make my bed, with the stars above my head,
And dream of a place called home.


The Earl

Something in gentle vein

A piece I find rather poetic

I am a Town

Mary Chapin Carpenter
(from the 'Come on Come on' album)

I'm a town in Carolina, I'm a detour on a ride
For a phone call and a soda, I'm a blur from the driver's side
I'm the last gas for an hour, if you're going 25
I am Texaco and tobacco, I am dust you leave behind

I am peaches in September and corn from a roadside stall
I'm the language of the native, I'm a cadence and a drawl
I'm the pines behind the graveyard and the cool beneath their shade
Where the boys have left their beercans, I am weeds between the graves

My porches sag and lean with old black men and children
My sleep is filled with dreams, I never can fulfil them
I am a town

I'm a church beside the highway, where the ditches never drain
I'm a Baptist like my daddy, Jesus knows my name
I am memory and stillness, I am lonely in old age
I am not your destination, I am clinging to my ways
I am a town

I'm a town in Carolina, I am billboards in the fields
I'm an old truck up on cinderblocks missing all my wheels
I Am Pabst Blue Ribbon, American, and 'Southern Serves The South'
I am tucked behind a Jaycees sign on the rural route
I am a town
I am a town
I am a town
Southbound

oh god.. i woke up in an aerosmith mode:
heres for you luckylove


Pink - it's my new obsession
Pink - it's not even a question,
Pink - on the lips of your lover
(oh)
'Cause Pink is the love you discover

Pink - as the bing on your cherry
Pink - 'cause you are so very
Pink - it's the color of passion
Ah, 'cause today it just goes with the fashion

Pink - it was love at first sight
Yeah, Pink - when I turn out the light
And Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

You could be my flamingo
'Cause pink - it's the new kinda of lingo
Pink - like a deco umbrella
It's kink that you don't ever tell her

Pink - it was love at first sight
And Pink when I turn out the light
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

Yeah!

I want to be your lover
I, I wanna wrap you in rubber
And it's pink as the sheets that we lay on
'Cause Pink - it's my favorite crayon

Yeah!

Pink - it was love at first sight
Pink - when I turn out the light
Pink - it's like red but not quite
And I think, everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

Things are beginning to settle and the closer I get to feeling established, the more I find myself looking for Your Face



I keep looking for your face in the morning sun
coming 'round a corner bend , it's that time of year again
when you should appear like apples, red and clear
between the green and my missing you
it's a melancholy time, it's a scent that's been refined
it's the air as sharp as waking

I have seen your lions mane shaking untamed without you
and your clothes laze on other shoulders and legs
but they don't move like you used to
they're just misfits in your place
looks like troubles in the waiting
I keep looking for your light
there's no yellow in sight, a lifeless painting

I keep looking for your face, I keep looking for your face

I keep looking for your face in the morning sun
coming 'round a corner bend , it's that time of year again
I keep looking for your face, I keep looking for your face

It's Remembrance Day. I always asked for this song to be played on the radio on this day.

And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda by The Pogues

When I was a young man I carried my pack
And I lived the free life of a rover
From the Murrays green basin to the dusty outback
I waltzed my Matilda all over
Then in nineteen fifteen my country said Son
It's time to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be done
So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
And they sent me away to the war

And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As we sailed away from the quay
And amidst all the tears and the shouts and the cheers
We sailed off to Gallipoli

How well I remember that terrible day
How the blood stained the sand and the water
And how in that hell that they called Suvla Bay
We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
Johnny Turk he was ready, he primed himself well
He chased us with bullets, he rained us with shells
And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell
Nearly blew us right back to Australia
But the band played Waltzing Matilda
As we stopped to bury our slain
We buried ours and the Turks buried theirs
Then we started all over again

Now those that were left, well we tried to survive
In a mad world of blood, death and fire
And for ten weary weeks I kept myself alive
But around me the corpses piled higher
Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over tit
And when I woke up in my hospital bed
And saw what it had done, I wished I was dead
Never knew there were worse things than dying

For no more I'll go waltzing Matilda
All around the green bush far and near
For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs two legs
No more waltzing Matilda for me

So they collected the cripples, the wounded, the maimed
And they shipped us back home to Australia
The armless, the legless, the blind, the insane
Those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay
I looked at the place where my legs used to be
And thank Christ there was nobody waiting for me
To grieve and to mourn and to pity

And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As they carried us down the gangway
But nobody cheered, they just stood and stared
Then turned all their faces away

And now every April I sit on my porch
And I watch the parade pass before me
And I watch my old comrades, how proudly they march
Reliving old dreams of past glory
And the old men march slowly, all bent, stiff and sore
The forgotten heroes from a forgotten war
And the young people ask, "What are they marching for?"
And I ask myself the same question

And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
And the old men answer to the call
But year after year their numbers get fewer
Some day no one will march there at all

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And their ghosts may be heard as you pass the Billabong
Who'll come-a-waltzing Matilda with me?

I regard this one as appropriate too.

Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel

We met as soul mates
On Parris Island
We left as inmates
From an asylum
And we were sharp
As sharp as knives
And we were so gung ho
To lay down our lives

We came in spastic
Like tameless horses
We left in plastic
As numbered corpses
And we learned fast
To travel light
Our arms were heavy
But our bellies were tight

We had no home front
We had no soft soap
They sent us Playboy
They gave us Bob Hope
We dug in deep
And shot on sight
And prayed to Jesus Christ
With all our might

We had no cameras
To shoot the landscape
We passed the hash pipe
And played our Doors tapes
And it was dark
So dark at night
And we held on to each other
Like brother to brother
We promised our mothers we’d write

And we would all go down together
We said we’d all go down together
Yes we would all go down together


Remember Charlie
Remember Baker
They left their childhood
On every acre
And who was wrong?
And who was right?
It didn’t matter in the thick of the fight

We held the day
In the palm
Of our hand
They ruled the night
And the night
Seemed to last as long as six weeks
On Parris Island
We held the coastline
They held the highlands
And they were sharp
As sharp as knives
They heard the hum of our motors
They counted the rotors
And waited for us to arrive

And we would all go down together
We said we’d all go down together
Yes we would all go down together

Beautiful choices, RG. Heard Hallelujah last night and it reminded me of this thread and of you and the rest of the friendships made here. Amazing how that works, innit?



I know it's not fitting for the day, but this is one fitting for my mood and if no one minds, I just need to hear it. I'll turn the radio back over to y'all as soon as it's done.

It Doesn't Matter
Depeche Mode


I am happy
That I have you
Even though you're not here now
I know somewhere
You are dreaming
Though it's definitely not of me

It doesn't matter
If this all shatters
Nothing lasts forever
But I'm praying
That we're staying
Together

I am warmed
By your friendship
Even when you're far away
And I'm happy
In the knowledge
We may never see the day

When I kiss you
And you kiss me
Don't pretend you miss me
The worst kind of diseased mind
Is one filled with jealousy

If we should meet again
Don't try to solve the puzzle
Just lay down next to me
And please don't move a muscle

I will thank you
Most of all for
The respect you have for me
I'm embarrassed
It overwhelms me
Because I don't deserve any

It doesn't matter
If this all shatters
Nothing lasts forever
But I'm praying
That we're staying
Together

I've always loved this song, even though it can make me meloncholy at times...

In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel)

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes

I love that one, Cloudy

I know I said I was done, but I lied. One more...

Another Song About the Rain
-Cracker


Wind of fate has pried us loose
Light of mercy hurts my eyes
Is it worth the things you lose
to board the train and watch the sky?

I sing myself to sleep at night
I sing myself to sleep

Another song about the rain
Coming down it burns through me
Another song about the rain

Got a line straight from my heart.
Another time it ran to you.
Another place where we were smart
before the flood and time was through.

I sing myself to sleep at night
I sing myself to sleep

Another song about the rain
Coming down it burns through me
Another song about the rain

Sorry now I never made you see
Sorry now sounds so far away
Will our child cry for me
when he hears the dragon's flame?

Highway flares make red the streets
My fingers spin the dial again,
but every station's on to me, yeah
Another song about the rain

Never rained so viciously

"Wild Nights" by Van Morrison

As you brush your shoes and stand before the mirror,
And you comb your hair and grab your coat and hat,
And you walk the streets tryin' to remember,
All the wild night breezes in your very head.

And everything looks so complete,
When you're walkin' out on the street,
And the wind catches your feet and sends you flyin', cryin'
Oooh, oooh oooh whee, wild night is calling.

All the girls walk by dressed up for each other,
And the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passing by just stare in wide wonder,
And the inside jukebox roars out like thunder.

And everything looks so complete,
When you're walkin' out on the street,
And the wind catches your feet and sends you flyin', cryin'
Oooh, oooh oooh whee, wild night is calling.

The wild night is calling, the wild night is calling
Come on out and dance (Come on out and dance)
Come on out and make romance
Come on out and dance (come on out and dance)
Come on out and make romance

And everything looks so complete,
When you're walkin' out on the street,
And the wind catches your feet and sends you flyin', cryin'
Oooh, oooh oooh whee, wild night is calling.

Still in Saigon ~ Charlie Daniels

Got on a plane in 'Frisco
And got off in Vietnam
I walked into a different world
The past forever gone

I could have gone to Canada
Or I could have stayed in school
But I was brought up differently
I couldn't break the rules

Thirteen months and fifteen days
The last ones were the worst
One minute I'd kneel down and pray
And the next I'd stand and curse

No place to run to
Where I did not feel that war
When I got home I stayed alone
And checked behind each door

Cuz I'm still in Saigon
Still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
In my mind

The ground at home was covered in snow
And I was covered in sweat
My younger brother calls me a killer
And my daddy calls me a vet

Everybody says I'm someone else
And I'm sick and there's no cure
Damned if I know who I am
There was only one place I was sure

When i was still in Saigon
Still in saigon
I am still in saigon
In my mind

Every summer when it rains
I smell the jungle, I hear the planes
I can't tell no one, I feel ashamed
Afraid some day I'll go insane

That's been ten long years ago
And time has gone on by
Now and then I catch myself
Eyes searching through the sky

All the sounds of long ago
Will be forever in my head
Mingled with the wounded cries
And the silence of the dead

'Cuz I'm still in Saigon
Still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
In my mind

I am still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
Yes, I'm still in Saigon
In my mind

Wink Feelin the need to let my dim light shine a bit

Bittersweetheart
- Soul Asylum

Why you always wanna get the best of me?
I'm like seeing eye dog and I can't even see
They're naked and they're following my master who's blind
And my mind's gone to pieces, I could use some piece of mind

So I picked up the pieces and I made a new start
Stole an old stiletto and started stabbing in the dark
I can't live without it, I would certainly fall apart
But it's hard to make arrangments around a bittersweetheart

Bittersweet, Bittersweetheart
Better get yourself a little street smart
Bittersweetheart sad but true
It's a bittersweetheart that's a hard heart to cure
It's just my bittersweetheart

Bittersweetheart, Bittersweetheart

It's like a suicide mission when you can't see no end
Tired of compliment fishin and impressing your friends
I never kissed no one just to kiss and tell
It's a little bit of heaven and a whole lot of hell

In the eye beholder it's a beautiful start
You always seem to end up with a bittersweetheart
There's a darkness looming,
but the sun is shining bright
I can live to see the morning if I stay up all night

Bittersweet, Bittersweetheart, Bittersweetheart
Got a short gun, got a head start
Bittersweetheart, sad but true
It's a bittersweetheart that's a hard heart to cure
It's just my bittersweetheart
It's the hardest part, Bittersweetheart

Are you in there are you beating
beating me up, until I'm bleeding
How much blood can you spare?

Bittersweetheart, Bittersweetheart
Think just a drink will get you to the good part
lyin in bed just wondering what to do
It's a bittersweetheart that's a hard heart to cure

In time inside you find you always
end up with a bittersweetheart

Bittersweetheart, Bittersweetheart

In time inside you find you always
end up with a bittersweetheart

To let off some rage and fear

I would like to hear The Ghost of Tom Joad by Rage Against The Machine

Man walks along the railroad track
He's Goin' some place, there's no turnin' back
The Highway Patrol chopper comin' up over the ridge
Man sleeps by a campfire under the bridge
The shelter line stretchin' around the corner
Welcome to the New World Order
Families sleepin' in their cars out in the Southwest
No job, no home, no peace, no rest, NO REST!

And The highway is alive tonight
Nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Searchin' for the Ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls his prayer book out of a sleepin' bag
The preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag
He's waitin' for the time when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass
With a one way ticket to the promised land
With a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand
Lookin' for a pillow of solid rock
Bathin' in the cities' aqueducts

And The highway is alive tonight
Nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
With the Ghost of old Tom Joad

Guitar Solo

Now Tom Said; "Ma, whenever ya see a cop beatin' a guy
Wherever a hungry new born baby cries
Whereever there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me ma'
I'll be there
Wherever somebodies strugglin' for a place to stand
For a decent job or a helpin' hand
Wherever somebody is strugglin' to be free
Look in their eyes ma,
You'll see me! (repeat 8 times)

And the highway is alive tonight
nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
With the Ghost of Tom Joad.
