THE ROVER

I've been to London, seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for
There can be no denyin'
That the wind'll shake 'em down
And the flat world's flyin'
In the new plague on the land
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join

In fields of plenty when heaven sent me
I saw the kings who rule them all
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
I hear the rusted rivers call
And the wind is cryin'
Of a love that won't grow cold
My lover, she is lyin'
On the dark side of the globe
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, do it, ohh

You got me rockin' when I ought to be a-rollin'
Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go
You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me stallin'
Won't you tell me, darlin', which way to go, that's right

  (Guitar Solo)

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
And I would dearly like to know
Why all this wonder of earthly plunder
Will it leave us anything to show
And our time is flyin'
See the candle burnin' low
Is the new world risin'
From the shambles of the old
If we just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just join hands, hands
That's all it takes, that's all it takes

That's all it takes, that's all it takes
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, ooh yeah

Ah, ah, hey
That's right
That's right
That's right
That's right

IN MY TIME OF DYING

HOUSES OF THE HOLY

Let me take you to the movies
Can I take you to the show
Let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow

From the houses of the holy
We can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter
And it only goes to show
Ah, you know

There's an angel on my shoulder
In my hand a sword of gold
Let me wander in your garden
And the seeds of love I'll sow
You know-whoa-oh

So the world is spinning faster
Are you dizzy when you stall
Let the music be your master
Will you heed the master's call
Oh-whoa-oh, Satan an' man

Said there ain't no use in cryin'
'Cuz it will only, only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear them lyin'
Was this the only world you had
Oh-oh

So let me take you, take you to the movie
Can I take you, baby, to the show
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow
You know-whoa, that's right

  (Guitar Solo)

Specialist tradition, mama, I'm gonna feast my eyes

Guaranteed to run for hours, mama, I need brand new tires

Talkin' 'bout love
Talkin' 'bout love

Groovin' on the freeway, blazes on the railin'
From now on my gasoline I believe I'm gonna crack your head

Ounheahhonhouh

KASHMIR

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
Stars to fill my dreams
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
Secret elders of a gentle race
This world is seldom seen
Talk of days for which they sit and wait
When all will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace
Whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear
Whoa-oh-hoh, whoa-oh-wa-oh

Oooh, oh baby, I been flyin'
Lord, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oh, oooh yes, I've been flying
Mama ma, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

Oh, all I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land
Tryin' to find, tryin' to find where I beeeeen-ahhh-ahhhh

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place
Yellow desert screen
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
When movin' through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails
Across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
'Long the straits of fear
Wha-oh, wha-oh
Whaoh-oh, oh

Ohhhh

Well, when I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay, yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, yes
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there

Oh, oh, come on, come on
Oh, let me take you there
Let me take you there
Whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, let me take you

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

Hey, ooh, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold
Hey, yeah, baby, I know how it feels 'cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul, yeah
Oh-whoa-oo-ohh, baby, I just wanna show you what I'd give you
It is from every bend in the road
Now listen
Oh, whoa-oo-ohh, as I was and really would be for you, too, honey
As you would for me
Oh, I would share your load
Let me share your load
Ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can't go on
In the light you will find the road

Hey, ah-hoh, though the winds of change may blow around you
But that will always be so
Oh, whoa-oo-oh, whoa-oo-oh, when love is pain it can devour you
If you are never alone
I would share your load
I would share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

In the light
Everybody needs a light, whooh, yeah-ee-yeah
Ooh, baby, in the light, in the light, in the light

DOWN BY THE SEASIDE

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin'
Can the people hear, oh
What the little fish are sayin'

Ohhhhh, ooooooh, oh oh, the people turned away
Oh, the people turned away

Down in the city streets
See all the folk go racin', racin'
No time left, no-no
To pass the time of day

Ohhhhhhh, oooooooh
Hey, hey, yeah, the people turned away
The people turned away
So far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run, see how they run, see how they run
Run-run, run-run, run-run

Do you still do the twist
Do you find that you remember things that well
I wanna tell you
Some folk twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell
Ah-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, oh

Out in the country
Hear the people singin'
Singin' 'bout their progress
Knowin' where they're goin'
Yeah, yeah

Ahhhhhhh, ooooooooh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, the people turned away
Yes, the people turned away

Sing loud for the sunshine
Pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature
And she will come back again
Yes she will, yes she will

Ahhhhhhh, ooooooooh
Oh, oh, oh, the people turned away
The people turned away

Don't they know that they're goin'

TEN YEARS GONE

There as it was
Then again it will be
Though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

Blind stars of fortune
Each have several rays
On the wings of maybe
Down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes
Didn't have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest
Got so far to go

Changes fill my time
Baby, that's alright with me
In the midst I think of you
And how it used to be

  (Guitar Solo)

Did you ever really need somebody
And really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody
The best stuff 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

Through the eyes an' I sparkle
Senses growing keen
Taste your love along the way
See your feathers preen
Kind of makes me feel sometimes
Didn't have to grow
We are eagles of one nest
The nest is in our soul

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

Ohh

Oh darlin'
Oh, yeah
Oh darlin'
I'm never gonna leave ya
I'm never gonna leave
Holdin' on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone
Holdin' on, everday
I'm never
I nev'
I'm never
I never
I'm never
Oh

NIGHT FLIGHT

I received a message from my brother 'cross the water
He sat laughin' as he wrote the end's in sight
So I said goodbye to all my friends
And packed my hopes inside a matchbox
'Cause I know it's time to fly

Oh-oh-oh-oaoh, yeah, come on, meet me in the morning
Meet me in the middle of the night
Ah-oh, yeah, the morning light is comin'
Don't it make you wanna go 'n an' feel alright

Ooh, yeah
Ah-ha

I just jumped a train that never stops
So know somehow they'll know I never
Finished payin' for my ride
Someone pushed a gun into my hand
Tell me I'm the type of man
To fight the fight that I'll require

Ohhoaoh, yeah, ha, come on meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night, yeah
Ohhoaoh, well, the morning light is comin'
'll don't it make you wanna go on an' feel alright

Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin'
Nothin' here to make me stay
Whoa, mama, well it must be time I'm goin'
They're knockin' down them doors
They're tryin' to take me away

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell
And ring me loud and clear
Unnh, please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell
Tell the people they got to fly away from here

Ohhoaoh, I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
Suddenly they have a very, very special smile
We are in the middle of a change in destination
When the train stops, all together we will smile

Ohhoaoh, come on, come on, now, meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, n-n-ni-night
Hoah, hoah, yeah, everybody know the mornin' time is comin'
Don't it make you wanna a-feel alright
Ah, ah, yeah

Fly now, baby
Get to fly, yeah
Fly now, baby

Aoahaohah-hey-hea, unnh
Unnh, unnh, unnh

THE WANTON SONG

Silent woman in the night, you came
Took my seed from my shakin' frame
Same old thing, yeah, I'm not a-playin'
And the wheel rolls on

Silent moves through the flames, you come
From the deep behind the sun
Gives my nightmares, my love has gone
Left me barely holdin' on, oh, oh

With blazin' eyes I see my tremblin' hands
Now we know the time has come
Lose my senses, lose command
Feel your healin' rivers run

Why is it every time I fall
That I think this is the one
Ooh, in the darkness can you hear me call
Another day has just begun, another day, yeah
Ooh

  Guitar Solo

Suddenly all of my face is changed
Some know wha' it has become
Feel my fire needs a brand-new flame
And the wheel rolls on

Rolls on
Rolls on
Rolls on, eunh

Painted lady in the city of lies

Oh, do ya know my name
Do I look the same
You know I'm the one you want, baby
I must be the one you need, yeah

Clutchin' pages from your teenage dream
In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
Through the circus of the L.A. queens
How fast you learn the downhill slide

Whooh, yes, I've got to be the one you need, need, need, need

Lips like cherries on the brow of a queen

Said you dug me since you were thirteen
Then you giggle as heave and sigh

Oh, do you know my name

Baby, I got to tell you, I'm the one you want
And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah

Oh, get it, get it
Come on now
