To be a rock, and not to roll

Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall...

It's just a little rain...

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river,

And weren't those tears that filled your eyes?

And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying,

Had they got you hypnotized?

Well, I'm from New Orleans. During the horror of Katrina, people around the city were blasting "When The Levee Breaks" out their windows.

"cryin' won't help ya

prayin' won't do ya no good,

when the levee breaks, mama you got to move"

I don't know about all-time favorites but my current favorites are (because I’ve been watching my blu-ray of the Band Of Joy from the Artists Den) the words to "Ramble On" and "Houses Of The Holey", especially:

“From the door comes Satan’s daughter and it only goes to show. You know”

and

“There’s an angel on my shoulder. In my hand a sword of gold”

If the sun refused to shine

I would still be loving you

When mountains crumble to the sea

There would still be you and me

Squeeze my lemon, 'til the juice runs down my leg

Ah do it again, 'til the juice runs down my leg

I don't care how hard you squeeze it Mama

Just take your teeth out before you get into bed.

To many to make a choice, so I'll just go with "Nah,leave it..yeah" in Black Country Woman :peace:

Always loved this one as a lot have already been covered:-)

In The Light:

And if you feel that you can't go on,And your wills sinkin low

Just believe and you can't go wrong

In the light you will find the road.You will find the road

"And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter." (Stairway to Heaven)

I don't know why but these lyrics remind me of Shakespeare's " A Midsummer Night's Dream ". Knowledge through Art.

Those are some beautiful lyrics, Stairway is special.

In The Light

And if you feel that you can't go on. And your will's sinkin' low
Just believe and you can't go wrong.
In the light you will find the road. You will find the road. 

The Rover

And our time is flyin' see the candle burnin' low 
Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old?
If we could just join hands.

Thank You

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by. 
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong, together we shall go until we die.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look... see. 

In My Time of Dying

Meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me, Lord
Please meet me with another pair

Fool In The Rain

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner,
I watch the people go shuffling downtown.

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

Oh tired of the light,
I just don't seem to find.
Have you wait, yeah played.

Ooh now my body is starting to quiver
An' the palms of my hands getting wet oh.
I 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!
An' the thoughts of a fool's gotta count,
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block oh-yeah.

Ten Years Gone

Did you ever really need somebody, And really need 'em bad 
Did you ever really want somebody, The best love you ever had 
Do you ever remember me, baby, did it feel so good 
'Cause it was just the first time, And you knew you would 

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me 
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be

I've always had a liking for these lines from Carouselambra:

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,
Unending dances shadowed on the day.
Within their walls, their daunting formless keep,
Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay.

Tea For One

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days? 
Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days 
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way 
Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow 
I've been watchin for the hands to move 
Until I just can't look no more 
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days? 
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way. 

To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say 
"Oh baby this one's for we two", Which in the end is you anyway 

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days? 
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way. 

There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men 
But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again 

How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days? 
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way 
A minute seems like a lifetime 
When I feel this way...I feel this way
