And suddenly
The strangest things are happening
I hope it’s not the last time
Last time
I had a drink or two
An hour so ago
It made me think of you
And now I know it’s not the last time
Last time
Flying high up in the sky
I wonder why
I think I’m gonna fall
Think I’m gonna fall
There I go again, I’m up again, there I go again
I hope this isn’t all
Hey.
As long as were up here
We might as well stay
In sweet harmony
Flying high up in the sky
I wonder why I have to have another
Point of view
To see me through
And now I think i’m gonna fall
I hope this isn’t all
And on top of that
I hope it’s not the last time

No affection were the words
That stuck on my mind
When she walked out on me
For the very last time
Oh, mama, sweet mama
Can you tell me what to say
I don’t know what I’ve done
To be treated this way

In a cold dirty room
That’s where I found myself
With a bottle of wine
And some pills on the shelf
Oh, mama, sweet mama
Can you tell me what to say
I don’t know what I’ve done
And I’m feeling so ashamed

Then an angel appeared
She was just seventeen
In a dirty old gown
With a conscience so clean
Oh, mama, sweet mama
Can you tell me what to say
She’s brought back the life
That I once threw away
She’s brought back the life
That I once threw away

Winterlude, Winterlude, oh darlin’,
Winterlude by the road tonight.
Tonight there will be no quarrelin’,
Ev’rything is gonna be all right.
Oh, I see by the angel beside me
That love has a reason to shine.
You’re the one I adore, come over here and give me more,
Then Winterlude, this dude thinks you’re fine.

Winterlude, Winterlude, my little apple,
Winterlude by the corn in the field,
Winterlude, let’s go down to the chapel,
Then come back and cook up a meal.
Well, come out when the skating rink glistens
By the sun, near the old crossroads sign.
The snow is so cold, but our love can be bold,
Winterlude, don’t be rude, please be mine.

Winterlude, Winterlude, my little daisy,
Winterlude by the telephone wire,
Winterlude, it’s makin’ me lazy,
Come on, sit by the logs in the fire.
The moonlight reflects from the window
Where the snowflakes, they cover the sand.
Come out tonight, ev’rything will be tight,
Winterlude, this dude thinks you’re grand.

Outside in New Orleans the heat was almost frightening
But my hotel room as usual was freezing and unkind
On TV they prosecute anyone who’s exciting
So I put on my overcoat and went down to find

In Revlon and Crimpelene they captured my heart
To the strain of a piano and a cocktail murderess
She was singing that “It’s Too Late”, I agreed with that part
For two English girls who had changed their address

Now it seems we’ve been crying for years and for years
Now we don’t speak any English, just American without tears
Just American without tears

One had been a beauty queen and the other was her friend
They had known rogues and rascals and showbiz impresarios
While the boys were licking Hitler they had something to defend
From men armed with chewing gum and fine nylon hose

By a bicycle factory as they sounded the siren
And returned into the dancehall she knew he was the one
Though he wasn’t tall or handsome she laughed when he told her
“I’m the Sheriff of Nottingham and this is Little John”

Now it seems we’ve been crying for years and for years
Now we don’t speak any English, just American without tears
Just American without tears

At a dock in Southampton full of tearful goodbyes
Newsreel commentators said “Cheerio, G.I. brides”
Soon they’ll be finding the cold facts and lies
New words for suspenders and young girls’ backsides

Now I’m in America and running from you
Like my grandfather before me walked the streets of New York
And I think of all the women I pretend mean more than you
When I open my mouth and I can’t seem to talk

Now it seems we’ve been crying for years and for years
Now we don’t speak any English, just American without tears
Just American without tears

Now it seems we’ve been crying for years and for years
Now I don’t speak any English just American without tears
Just American without tears
Just American without tears

In South Carolina, there’re many tall pines
I remember the oak tree that we used to climb
But now when I’m lonesome I always pretend
That I’m gettin’ the feel of hickory wind

I started out younger, had most everything
All the riches and pleasures, what else can life bring?
But it makes me feel better each time you begin
Callin’ me home, hickory wind

It’s a hard way to find out that trouble is real
In a faraway city with a faraway feel
But it makes me feel better each time you begin
Callin’ me home, hickory wind
Keeps callin’ me home, hickory wind

Would you love me
If I told you I was born upstream
If I told you I come from money
White money
Would you love me
Would you love me

Well, I was born down
By a bad little river in a poor town
Where an indian-giver put a board out
It said “Boarding House”
Call him Scarecrow
He kept whores around

And I’d go there
I’d wait my turn on the broke stairs
And get me the girl with the gold hair
Aw yeah, leave your clothes there
On the folding chair

In that cold room
Your breath would twist just like ghosts do
You said, “Call me Dorothy in red shoes”
And the bed moved
The bed moved
The bed moved

Tracy, don’t you wake that scarecrow tonight

Well, the man would come in
It’s hard living right giving head when
The sad days of winter have set in
And the medicine for an addict is heroin

I’d find you there in the bath
We’d cook up your shit in a tin can
And you started calling me Tin Man
And we started making plans to begin again
Begin again

You saved a C note
Told me you felt like a seagull
Told me to meet at the depot
With the needle, then maybe we’d go
To Reno

Where you’d be my desert dove
And we’d find a way to make better love
Said, “Baby, that’s how the West was won”
And the blood-red sun
Yeah, the blood-red sun
And the blood-red sun

Tracy, don’t you wake that scarecrow tonight

Well, the man cries,
“Who gives a damn when a tramp dies?”
But I loved you there in the lamp light
With your bare thighs
And the halo of your hair alive

And all my lifelong
I’ll never shake off your siren song
And all of your talk about dying young
With an iron lung and that crazy way

You said, “Simon,
I think I might stay here with Scarecrow tonight
Simon, I think I’m gonna stay here with Scarecrow tonight.”

We’ve been friends now for so many years
We’ve been together through the good times and the tears
Turned each other on to the good things that life has to give

We drift apart for a little bit of a spell
One night I get a call and I know that you’re well
And days I was down you would help me get out of my hole

Ohhhhhhhh

Let’s be friends
Let’s be friends
Let’s be friends

You told me when my girl was untrue
I loaned you money when the funds weren’t too cool
I talked your folks out of making you cut off your hair

We’ve been friends now for so many years
We’ve been together through the good times and the tears
Dim dipple ee dim dipple ay dim dipple oo dim dee aye oh

Oh dear, what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?
She thinks of him and so she dresses in black,
And though he’ll never come back, she’s dressed in black.
Oh dear, what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?
I think of her, but she thinks only of him,
And though it’s only a whim, she thinks of him.
Oh how long will it take,
Till she sees the mistake she has made?
Dear what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?
Oh how long it will take,
Till she sees the mistake she has made?
Dear what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?
She thinks of him and so she dresses in black,
And though he’ll never come back, she’s dressed in black.
Oh dear, what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?
