Ive been on a huge acoustic folk kick lately so I thought I would post a few videos from youtube of some great songs from some great artists that I’ve had on repeat. I’m sure you’ve heard most all of them;however, I don’t think any of them ever get old. The lyrics are below them. Enjoy.
I'm thinking 'bout a broken heart I'm talking 'bout the break of dawn You love me while I'm here Then you can miss me when I'm gone Sweet misunderstanding Won't you leave a poor boy alone I'm the one eyed seed of a tumbleweed In the belly of a rolling stone Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah Back on the road again I had a little woman in Memphis She wanted to be my bride She said, settle on down, traveling man You can stay right by my side I tried so hard to please her But I couldn't hold out too long 'Cause one Saturday night I was laying in bed And I heard that highway song Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah Back on the road again Now one of these days that highway song will lose its appeal to me I'm gonna settle on down like a natural born man I'm gonna live my life naturally (Free and easy) Until that day the thunder's gonna roll And I notice there's a sign of rain So I grab my bags and I pack my clothes And I'm back on the road again Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah Back on the road again I'm thinking 'bout a broken heart I been talking 'bout the break of dawn You loved me while I'm here and you can miss me when I'm gone And I said sweet misunderstanding Won't you leave a poor boy alone 'Cause I'm the one eyed seed of a tumbleweed In the belly of a rolling stone Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah Back on the road again Here I am again Holiday Inn Same old four walls again Gee, but it's fine to be back home again (whoa, now) Say, Holiday Inn, I'm on the road again Neil Young-Dont Let It Bring You Down Old man lying by the side of the road With the lorries rolling by, Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load And the buildings scrape the sky, Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn And the morning paper flies, Dead man lying by the side of the road With the daylight in his eyes. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Find someone who's turning And you will come around. Blind man running through the light of the night With an answer in his hand, Come on down to the river of sight And you can really understand, Red lights flashing through the window in the rain, Can you hear the sirens moan? White cane lying in a gutter in the lane, If you're walking home alone. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around. Monsters of Folk-Temazcal putting on my power, righteous as a rose dynamite the mountain, now i'm walking up the road the love we made at gunpoint wasn't love at all the dancing in the valley, the moons, the mirrored ball blew open my mind, now it's an empty room swinging in the hammock, dogs are walking across the roof i watch you braid your hair, you're from another time when the earth wasn't so angry and god was on our side searching west and east and all points in-between underneath the lines of thought you're there and then you're not the mayans stole tomorrow, hid it underground we come with heavy magnets but it still hasn't been found i'm sweating out my secrets in the temazcal they're screaming in the calle that there are stars about to fall looking through the trees cities and the seas things we've seen ovnis on the lawn they're there and then they're gone there and then they're gone searching west and east all points in between and underneath the hand of god you're there and then you're not Whether your listening to the newer gods of folk or your listening to Neil young play on his old black acoustic guitar, folk is a great thing to get wrapped up in. Enjoy. Simon IStillGotMyGuitar
