Sunshine Help Me

Hold me tight the time is right
crazy dreams and mind-blowing schemes will get you
yeah

People talking bad to her
sitting on the block without any love
somewhere

It's time to let your mind play again
it's your heart just let mind play again

CHORUS

Sunshine help me
sunshine help me
help me take the strain away

Sunshine help me
sunshine help me
help me take the strain away

Is it true that I been wrong about the things
you always thought were innocent
People always going round putting me down

It's time to let your mind play again
its your heart let your mind take it

CHORUS

Tobacco Road 

 I was born in a dump
Mama died and my daddy got drunk
He left me there to die or grow
In this place called Tobacco Road

I grew up in a rusty shack
All I own was hangin' on my back
Lord knows how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home, yeah
The only life that I've ever known
I used to livin' that way, baby, and it's price of you
But I Love you 'cause you're my own

I'm gonna leave get a job
With the help and grace from above
Save my money get rich I know
In this place called Tobacco Road

Bring Dynamite and a crane
Blow it up and start all over again
Build a town I'll be proud to show
And keep the name of Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life that I've ever known
I used to livin' that way, and it's price of you
But I Love you 'cause you're my own

Tobacco Road, Tobacco Road, Tobacco Road

Society's Child

Come to my door, baby
Face is clean and shining black as night
Mama went to answer you know
Said you looked so fine
Now I can understand your tears and your pain
She called you girl instead of your name
When she wouldn't let you inside
When she turned and said
"But honey, she's not our kind"

She says I can't see you anymore, baby
Can't see you anymore

Walk me down to school, baby
People acting like they're deaf and blind
'Til they turn and say
"Why don't you stick to your own kind"
My teachers laugh, their smirking stares
Cutting deep down in our affairs
Preachers of equality
They said believe it
Then why won't they just let us be?

She said I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore

One of these days I'm gonna stop my listening
Gonna raise my head up high
One of these days I'm gonna spread
My glistening wings and fly
But that day will have to wait for a while
Baby, I'm only society's child
When we're older, things may change
But for now that's the way they must remain

I say I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore
I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore

Waitin' For The Wind

Lonely is the night
Now that darkness has fallin'
Nothing seems right
And the world is callin'

Everybody's looking back
As the wind comes whispering by
The're waitin' for the answers then
Like the time they heard a cry

Hang on
Don't ever go
Life's here
I know

Wind called on me
How it took me by surprise
Cause night come upon me
Creeping through the distant skies

Wind tell me what you can
'Bout the life - what I came from
A breeze blew and whispered then
In a voice rich as the sun

Hang on
Don't ever go
Life's here
I know

Lost In My Dream

It was a strange dream
It took my heart from me
And though it did seem
To end my misery
I could still see where
My life was headin' for
A voice cried beware
Your fate's behind the door 

And now I'm still lost
In my dream of fear
It's the end for me
Somewhere in the frost
On the seam of my mind
Waits my destiny
Don't think I've gone there today 

It was a strange dream
The dark eye stead to me
They had a deep clean
Reflecting fantasy
Then out of nowhere
There came a voice to me
It said this nightmare
Will be reality

And now I'm still lost
In my dream of fear
It's the end for me
Somewhere in the frost
On the seam of my mind
Waits my destiny 

Don't think of gone love again 

Gotta' find a way home somehow 

Lost in infinite sleep somewhere

That Was Only Yesterday

Guess I'll have to get out of this town 
No sense in my waiting around 
Only thing left for me here is pain 
She's gone for sure now why pretend 
Left last night with a friend 
Leaving not a word that would explain 

That was only yesterday 
But will I ever face tomorrow 
She took away what I'd had 
And returned it full of sorrow 

That was only yesterday 
Will I ever face tomorrow 
She took away what I'd had 
And returned it full of sorrow 

I think I better find somewhere 
A place where I won't care 
I need some time to hide my shame 
Was only just one day ago 
Found what I'd been searching for 
Had left town on a late night train 

And that was only yesterday 
But will I ever face tomorrow 
She took away what I'd had 
And returned it full of sorrow 

That was only yesterday 
Will I ever face tomorrow 
She took away what I'd had 
And returned it full of sorrow 
That was only yesterday 
Will I ever face tomorrow 
She took away what I'd had 
And returned it full of sorrow

Better By You, Better Than Me

You can find a way to be my passion 
You listen to the blood flowin' in my vein 
You hear the teaching of the wind 
Tell her what I'm like within 
I can't find the words my mind is dim 
It's better by you better than me 

Guess you'll have to tell her how I tried 
To speak the thoughts of hell so long inside 
Tell her now I've got to go 
Fight in the streets and guide the sword  
Tell her the world's not much fallin' for 
It's better by you better than me 

It's better by you better than me 
You can tell her what I want it to be 
You can say what I only can see 
It's better by you better than me 

Guess I'll have to change my way of livin' 
Only really know the way I've been  
Guess I'll lean to fight and kill 
Tell her not to wait until 
Finds my blood upon her window sill 
It's better by you better than me 

It's better by you better than me 
You can tell her what I want it to be 
You can say what I only can see 
It's better by you better than me 
It's better by you better than me 
You can say what I can see 
You can tell her what I want it to be 
It's better by you better than me 
It's better by you 
You know better than me 
Yeah you can say what I only can see

Hangman Hang My Shell On A Tree

Someone said he knows he know, knows nothing yea 
He who knows he knows nothing really knows 
But I have searched but I never could find 
A way to make my true self unwind 
And while I sit here waiting to die 
I can see what I am, can tell you why 

The time's right ahead, can't you see 
Cause my life's running out, out on me 
I forgotten how it was, let me be 
So hangman hang my shell, on a tree 

It's all so easy like the time, that I first learned yea 
It's all the same since the day, the world first turned yea 
But I never tried to listen or wait 
But now it's so clear but for me it's too late. 
So I sit here trying not to cry 
I only wanted peace, and now I must die 

The time's right ahead, can't you see 
Cause my life's running out, out on me 
I forgotten how it was, let me be 
So hangman hang my shell, on a tree

I Am The Walrus

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together 
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly 
I'm crying 

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come 
Corporation T-shirt stupid bloody Tuesday 
Man you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long 

I am the eggman
We are the eggmen
I am the walrus 

Mr. City policeman sitting pretty little policeman in a row 
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run 
I'm crying

Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye 
Crabalocker fishwife pornographic priestess 
Boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down 

I am the eggman 
I am the eggman  
I am the walrus 

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun 
If the sun don't come you get a tan from standing in the English rain 

I am the eggman 
We are the eggmen 
I am the walrus 

Expert texpert choking smokers 
Don't you think the joker laughs at you? 
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied 
I'm crying 

Semolina pilchard; climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna,
man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Alan Poe
 
I am the eggman 
We are the eggmen
I am the walrus

The Wrong Time

Change is what she said
When she left me
I laughed as she ran
Cryiní out my door
 
Time has made me see
Misery has gotten to me
Itís time I think to take her back
Once more
 
Cause itís the wrong time
The wrong place
The wrong way for me 
To tell her that itís over
(Repeat)
 
Somethingís gotten in my way of liviní
Strange it seems each time I say goodbye
I think of all the good she did in giviní
And loneliness has made me realize
 
That itís the wrong time
The wrong place
The wrong way for me
To tell her that itís over
(Repeat)

Son Of Your Father

I'll catch the tramline in the morning
With your leave Van Bushell said
He had further heard the cock crow
As he stumbled out the shed

Then blind Joseph came towards him
With a shotgun in his arms
He said you'll pay me twenty dollars
Before you leave my farm

Van Bushell saw the hook
Which replaced Joseph's hand
He said now calm you down my brother
Let's discuss this man to man

It's no good you getting angry
We must try to act our age
You're pursuing your convictions
Like some hermit in a cage

You're the son of your father
Try a little bit harder
Do for me as he would do for you
With blood and water bricks and mortar
He built for you a home
You're the son of your father
So treat me as your own

Well slowly Joseph well he lowered the rifle
And he emptied out the shells
Van Bushell he came towards him
He shook his arm and wished him well

He said now hey blind man that is fine
But I sure can't waste my time
So move aside and let me go my way
I've got a train to ride

Well Joseph turned around
His grin was now a frown
He said let me just refresh your mind
Your manners boy seem hard to find

You're the son of your father
Try a little bit harder
Do for me as he would do for you
With blood and water bricks and mortar
He built for you a home
You're the son of your father
So treat me as your own
You're the son of your father
So treat me as your own
You're the son of your father
So treat me as your own

Cotton Growing Man

Cotton Growing Man 
Sitting in your chair
You think you're a winner
You don't have a care
All you do is sit and drink all day
Yes you don't do nothing
Cotton Growing Man 

Cotton Growing Man 
Drink away your sin
Forget all the slavery
It got lost in gin
All you do is sit and drink all day
Yes you don't do nothing
Cotton Growing Man 

You got all the cotton that you need
You got all the money with your greed

You got all the cotton that you need
You got all the money with your greed

Cotton Growing Man 
Pass away your time
Forget all your troubles
Drown them deep in wine
All you do is sit and drink all day
Yes you don't do nothing
Cotton Growing Man
