"Tears in Heaven" - Eric Clapton

Would you know my name,
  If I saw you in heaven,
  Would it be the same,
  If I saw you in heaven,

I must be strong,
 and carry on,
 Cause I know I don't belong,
 Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
 If I saw you in heaven
 Would you help me stand
 If I saw you in heaven

I'll find my way, through night and day
 Cause I know I just can't stay
 Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
 Time can bend your knee
 Time can break your heart
 Have you begging please
 Begging please

Beyond the door
 There's peace I'm sure.
 And I know there'll be no more...
 Tears in heaven

Would you know my name,
 If I saw you in heaven,
 Would it be the same,
 If I saw you in heaven,

I must be strong,
 and carry on,
 Cause I know I don't belong,
 Here in heaven

"Before You Accuse Me" - Eric Clapton

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You've been taking money from someone else

I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
Well your mother said "Son"
"Don't call my daughter no more"

Come back home baby, try my love one more time
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
If I don't go on and quit you
I'm gonna lose my mind

"Layla" - Eric Clapton

What will you do when you get lonely?
No one waiting by your side
You've been runnin' and hiding much too long
You know it's just your foolish pride

Layla
Got me on my knees, Layla
I'm beggin' darling please, Layla
Darling won't you ease my worried mind?

I tried to give you consolation
Your old man he let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
You turned my whole world upside down

Layla
You've got me on my knees, Layla
I'm beggin' darling please, Layla
Darling won't you ease my worried mind?

Make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane
Please don't say we'll never find a way
Tell me all my love's in vain

Layla
You've got me on my knees, Layla
I'm beggin' darling please, Layla
Darling won't you ease my worried mind?

"Tulsa Time" - Eric Clapton (org Don Williams)


A
I left Oklahoma, Driving in a pontiac
-                       E7
Just about to lose my mind.
I was going to Arizona, Maybe on to california
-                          A
Where people all live so fine.
My mother says I'm crazy, my baby calls me lazy
-                                  E7
But I'm gonna show them all this time
'cause you know I ain't no fool and i don't need no more damn schoolin'
I was born to just walk the lAine.

A                                     E7
Living on tulsa time, Living on tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it
'cause you know that I've been through it, living on tulsa time

So there I was in hollywood, thinking I was doing good
Talking on the telephone line
They don't want me in the movies and nobody sings my songs,
My mama says my baby's doing fine.
So then I started winking, then I started thinking,
That I really had a flash this time
That I had no business leaving, and nobody would be grieving,
You see I'm on tulsa time.

Living on tulsa time, Living on tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it
'cause you know that I've been through it, living on tulsa time

"Lay Down Sally" - Eric Clapton

There is nothing that is wrong
In wanting you to stay here with me.
I know you've got somewhere to go,
But won't you make yourself at home and
stay with me? And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

The sun ain't nearly on the rise
And we still got the moon and stars above.
Underneath the velvet skies,
Love is all that matters. Won't you stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

[Guitar Solo]

I long to see the morning light
Coloring your face so dreamily.
So don't you go and say goodbye,
You can lay your worries down and stay with me.
And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

"If YOou're Ever In Oklahoma" - JJ Cale

If you're ever in Okla - homa
You better move around at night
'Cause they don't like no transport - tation
Slipping by in-and-out of sight

And they don't care about Dallas, Texas
And they don't care about Wichi - ta
If you're ever in Okla - homa
You better move here around the law
They got fines, they got plenty
They'll hold you up for days on end
Threaten your life, take your money
Make you think you're there to stay

And they don't care about Dallas, Texas
And they don't care about Wichi - ta
If you're ever in Okla - homa

"Wanderful tonight" - Eric Clapton

It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair

And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me

And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you

It's time to go home now
And I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light

I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight

"Change the World" - Eric Clapton

If I could reach the stars, pull one down for you.
Shinin' on my heart, so you could see the truth.
Then this love I have inside, is everything it seems
But for now I find, its only in my dreams

And I can change the world. I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think our love was really some-thing good

Baby if I could, change...... the world

If I could be king, even for a day.
I'd take you as my queen. I'd have it no other way.
And our love would rule, this kingdom we have made.
Till then I'd be a fool, wishin for the day...

And I can change the world. I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think our love was really some-thing good
Baby if I could, change the world
Baby if I could, change............. the world

[Solo]

I can change the world. I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think our love was really some-thing good
Baby if I could, change the world
Baby if I could, change the world
Baby if I could, change . . . . the World

"Just the Way You Are" - Billy Joel

Don't go changing, to try and please me,
You never let me down before,
Don't imagine, you're too familiar,
And I don't see you anymore.

I would not leave you, in times of trouble,
We never could have come this far,
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times,
I'll take you just the way you are.

Don't go trying, some new fashion,
Don't change the colour of your hair,
You always have my, unspoken passion,
Although I might not seem to care.

I don't want clever, conversation,
I never want to work that hard,
I just want someone, that I can talk to,
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew,
What will it take till you believe in me,
The way that I believe in you?

I said I love you, and that's forever,
And this I promise from the heart,
I couldn't love you, any better,
I love you just the way you are.

I don't want clever, conversation,
I never want to work that hard,
I just want someone, that I can talk to,
I want you just the way you are.

"Piano Man" - Billy Joel

[Intro]
C G F C F C D7 G  C G F C  F G C   G

[Verse 1]
-        C      G          F    C
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
-         F       C              D7 G
The regular crowd shuffles in
-         C       G       F       C
There's an old man sitting next to me
-        F           G         C   G
Making love to his tonic and gin

-        C      G          F    C
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
-         F       C              D7 G
I'm not really sure how it goes
-         C       G       F       C
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
-        F           G         C   G
When I wore a younger man's clothes."

[Interlude]
Am              D7
la la la, di da da
Am           D7    G  F C G7
La la, di di da da dum

[Verse 2]
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us all feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
But there's some place that he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
As the smile ran away from his face
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"

[Interlude]
la la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

[Verse 3]
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessman slowly gets stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us all feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, "Man, what are you doing here?"

[Interlude]
la la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

[Verse 4]
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us all feeling alright

"You are the sunshine of my life" - Stivie Wonder


You are the sunshine of my life
Thats why Ill always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though Ive loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
Id find myself drowning in my own tears.

You are the sunshine of my life,
Thats why Ill always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart,

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
Thats why Ill always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart.

(background) love has joined us,
Love has joined us,
Lets think sweet love.

I have often told you stories
F
About the way

I lived the life of a drifter
Dm
waiting for the day

Many times I've been a traveller
-    F
I looked for something new
-            Gm
In days of old when nights were cold
Dm
I wandered without you
Gm
But those days I thought my eyes
F
Had seen you standing near
Gm
Though blindness is confusing
Dm
It shows that you're not here.

[Chorus]

Bb       C                Gm
But I feel I'm growing older
Eb          F                Bb
And the songs that I have sung

Of a windmill going round
Cm                Dm
Guess I'll always be

A soldier of fortune.

Yes, I can hear the sound

of a windmill going round

I guess I'll always be

a soldier of fortune.

"Holly Men" - Deep Purple

Called to Madonna
To give me a line
She said boy what have you done
Passing your time with a holy man
Talking about the moon and sun
But I can't tell the difference
Between the fool and wise
Show me a river to follow
Away from all these lies

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on the road so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

Called to the captain
To put me ashore
For it looked like no man's land
Is this the way to follow
I cried as I shook his hand
He told me had no answer
He didn't really hold the key
I am a simple man
Was all he said to me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on the road so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

Heard my mother crying
She was calling out my name
Whisper in the dark night
Saying who's to blame
The hour glass keeps turning
With not enought sand to see
I am a holy man
So don't you bother me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on the road so long
Won't you lend me your hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

When you see me coming go get your rockin' chair
I want you to rock me, rock me away from here

Left a good job in the city,
Workin for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel a-keep on turnin' Proud Mary keep on burnin'
D
And we're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river!

[Verse 2]
D
Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans.
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.
A                           Hm                 G
Big wheels keep on turnin, Proud Mary keep on burnin
D
And we're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river!
-                                            G  D       G  D       G  D
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river, the river, the river, the river

[Verse 3] (schneller bis zum Song ende)

Left a good job in the city
Workin for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'

"Sweet Home Alabama" - Lynyrd Skynyrd

D-C-G and it's throughout the song....

D    C             G
Big wheels keep on turning
D        C              G
Carry me home to see my kin
D        C               G
Singing songs about the Southland
D      C            G
I miss Alabamy once again

And I think its a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

D      C      G
Sweet home Alabama
D          C           G
Where the skies are so blue
D     C        G
Sweet Home Alabama
D         C              G
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swappers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the governor's true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I'm coming home to you

"Good Hearted Woman" - Willie Nelson

A long time forgotten the dreams that just fell by the way
The good life he promised ain't what she's livin' today
But she never complains of the bad times
Or the bad things he's done, lord
She just talks about the good times they've had
And all the good times to come

(She's a good hearted woman in love with a good timin' man)
She loves him in spite of his ways she don't understand
(With teardrops & laughter they pass through this world hand in hand)
(A good hearted woman, lovin' a good timin' man)

He likes the bright lights and night life and good time friends
And when the party's all over she'll welcome him back home again
Lord knows she don't understand him but she does the best that she can
(A good hearted woman, lovin' a good timin' man)

(She's a good hearted woman in love with a good timin' man)
(She loves him in spite of his ways she don't understand)
(With teardrops & laughter they pass through this world hand in hand)
A good hearted woman, lovin' a good timin' man

(She's a good hearted woman in love with a good timin' man)

"City Of New Orleans" - Willie Nelson version

[Verse]
Ridin' on the City of New Orleans
Illinois Central Monday mornin' rail
There's 15 cars, and 15 restless riders
3 conductors and 25 sacks of mail

All along a southbound oddyssey, and the train pulls out of Kankakee
And rolls along past the houses, farms and fields
Passin' trains that have no name, and freightyards full of old black men
The graveyards of the rusted automobiles

[Chorus]
Good mornin' America, how are you?
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

[Verse]
Dealing card games with the old men in the club car.
Penny a point, ain¿t no one keepin' score
Pass the paper bag that holds that bottle.
Hear the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor.

And the sons of Pullman Porters, and the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep are rockin¿ to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

[Chorus]
Good mornin' America, how are you?
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

[Verse]
Nighttime on the City of New Orleans.
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
Half way home, and we'll be there by mornin'
Through the Mississippi darkness rollin¿ down to the sea.

And all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream
And the steel rails still ain't heard the news
The conductor sings his songs again the passengers will please refrain
This train has got the disappearin¿ railroad blues

[Chorus]
Good mornin' America, how are you?
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

"Country Roads" -John Denver

Almost Heaven; West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old here, older than the trees, younger than the mountains,
Blowin like a breeze.

[Chorus]
Country Roads, take me home, to a place, where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads.

[Verse 2]
All my memories gather round her, miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine,
Teardrop in my eye.

[Chorus]
Country Roads, take me home, to a place, where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads.

[Bridge]
I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

[Chorus]
Country Roads, take me home, to a place, where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads.

Country Roads, take me home, to a place, where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads.
Take me home, country roads; take me home, down country roads

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" - John Denver

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin’, it’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’, he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome, I could die

[Chorus]
So kiss me and smile for me, Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
’Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane, Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing
Every place I go, I’ll think of you
Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you
When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring

[Chorus]
Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, let me kiss you
Then close your eyes, I’ll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times, I won’t have to say

You fill up my senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses come fill me again

Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again

For some California grass.

But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can

Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged

Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Loretta. go home

Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged

Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater
Get on home Loretta

Get back to where you once belonged.

"Sultans Of Swing" - Mark Knofler (Dire Straits)

You get a shiver in the dark
it's raining in the park but meantime
south of the river you stop and you hold everything
a band is blowing Dixie double four time
you feel alright when you hear that music ring

(Now) you step inside but you don't see too many faces
coming in out of the rain to you hear the jazz go down
competition in other places
but the horns, they're blowing that sound
way on downsouth
way on downsouth
London town

you check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing
and an old guitar is all he can afford
when he gets up under the lights to play his thing
And Harry doesnb't mind if he doesn't make the scene
He('s) got a daytime job he's doing al(l)right
He can play the honky tonk like anything
saving it up for friday night
with the sultans
with the sultans of swing

And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
they don't give a damn about ('bout) any trumpet playing band
it ain't what they call rock and roll
and the sultans
Yeah the Sultans they played Creole

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
and says at last just as the time bell rings
thank you goodnight now it's time to go home
and he makes it fast with one more thing
we are the sultans
we are the sultans of swing

"Peaceful Easy Feeling" - The Eagles

I like the way your sparkling earrings lay
Against your skin so brown
And i want to sleep with you in the desert to-night
With a million stars all around

Cause i got a peaceful easy feel-ing
And i know you won't let me down
Cause i'm allll-ready standing on the ground

And i found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul
Ah, but she can't take you any wAY
You don't already know how to go

Cause i got a peaceful easy feel-ing
And i know you won't let me down
Cause i'm allll-ready standing on the ground

I get the feeling i may know you
As a lover and a friend
But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear
Tells me i may never see you again

Cause i got a peaceful easy feel-ing
And i know you won't let me down
Cause i'm allll-ready standing on the ground

"Hotel California" - Eagles

Verse]

Bm                        F#
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
A                     E
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
G                         D
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Em
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#
I had to stop for the night

Bm                               F#
There she stood in the doorway;  I heard the mission bell
A                                          E
And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell
G                        D
Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way
Em                                   F#
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say

[Chorus]

G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California.
-       F#7                   Bm
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
G                               D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em                                      F#
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here

[Verse]

Bm                           F#
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
A                        E
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
G                                D
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Em                        F#
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

Bm                           F#
So I called up the Captain, 'Please bring me my wine'
A                                               E
He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'
G                          D
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Em
Wake you up in the middle of the night
F#
Just to hear them say...

[Chorus]

G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California
F#7                                               Bm
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place), Such a lovely face
G                                  D
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
Em                                           F#
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), Bring your alibis

[Verse]

Bm                      F#
Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice
A                                             E
And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
G                             D
And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast
Em
They stab it with their steely knives,
F#
But they just can't kill the beast

Bm                     F#
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
A                                     E
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
G                             D
'Relax,' said the night man, 'We are programmed to receive.
Em
You can check-out any time you like,
F#
But you can never leave!

"Browneyed Girl" - Van Morison

Down in the hollow,   playin' a new game
Laughin' and a-runnin' hey, hey,   skippin’ and a-jumpin’
In the misty mornin' fog with,   ah, our hearts thumpin' with you
My brown-eyed girl,        you’re my brown-eyed girl

Whatever happened,   Tuesday is so slow
Goin’ down the old mine with a   transistor radio
Standin’ in the sunlight laughin’,   hidin’ behind a rainbow's wall
Slippin’ and a-slidin’   all along the waterfall with you
My brown-eyed girl,        you’re my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da (just like that)
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da

So hard to find my way,   now that I'm all on my own

“Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival


Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm, I know
And it's been coming for some time

When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day, I know
Shining down like water

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day 

Yesterday and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard, I know
Been that way for all my time

'Til forever on it goes
Thru the circle fast and slow, I know
And it can't stop, I wonder

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day

"Wish You Were Here" - Pink Floyd



[Intro]
Em7  G  Em7  G  Em7  A7sus4  Em7  A7sus4  G       x2

[Verse 1]
C                         D/F#
So, so you think you can tell,
             Am/E                   G
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
                     D/F#                      C                    Am
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil,
                      G
Do you think you can tell?

[Verse 2]
                      C                   D/F#
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts,
                Am/E                  G                             D/F#
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change,
                  C                        Am                         G
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?


[Instrumental]
Em7  G  Em7  G  Em7  A7sus4  Em7  A7sus4  G


[Verse 3]
C                               D/F#
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
           Am/E                                    G                D/F#
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
                                  C
Running over the same old ground. What have we found?
             Am                         G
The same old fears. Wish you were here!

"Living Next Door To Alice" - Smokie

Sally called and she got the word.
She said I suppose you've heard, about Alice.
When I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
I could hardly believe my eyes.
And the big limousine pulled up, in Alices drive.

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not livin next door to Alice


We walked together, two kids in the park
We inscribed our initials deep in the bark me and Alice
As she walks to the door with her head held high
just for a moment I caught her eye
As the limousine pulls out, of Alices drive

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gunna go
I guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not livin next door to Alice

And sally called back and asked how i felt
And she said I know how to help, get over Alice
She said, now Alice is gone, but im still here
you know i've been waiting for 24 years
And the big limousine disapeared.


Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not livin next door to Alice

"Folsom Prison Blues" - Johnny Cash.




E             
I hear the train a-coming, it's rolling round the bend
                                                E7  
and I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
    A                                              E    
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' on
         B7                                    E
But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone

E
When I was just a baby, my Mama told me 'Son,
                                           E7
always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns.'
      A                                       E
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
       B7                                           E
when I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry


[Guitar solo/interlude]

 
E
I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car
                                           E7
They're probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
      A                                       E
But I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
       B7                                       E
But those people keep a moving, and that's what tortures me


[Guitar solo/interlude]

 
E
Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine
                                           E7
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
      A                                       E
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay
       B7                                           E
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
