Default woud you guess - a little redneck outlaw country?


David Allen Coe - Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone

Would you lay with me
In a field of stone?
If my needs were strong
Would you lay with me?

Should my lips grow dry
Would you wet them, dear
In the midnight hour
Should my lips grow dry?

Would you go away to another land?
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand
Wipe the blood away from my dying hand
If I give myself to you

Will you bathe with me
In the stream of life?
When the moon is full
Will you bathe with me?

Will you love me now
When I'm down and out?
In my time of trial
Will you stand by me?

Would you go away to another land?
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand
Wipe the blood away, from my dying hand
It might give myself to you

Now would you lay with me
In a field of stone?
If my needs were strong
Would you lay with me?

Lone Justice - Shelter
Well alright, you gave it all up for a dream
Fate proved unkind, to lock the door and leave no key
You're unsure, well baby I'm scared too
When the world crushes you

Let me be your shelter, shelter
From a storm outside
Let me be your shelter, shelter
From the endless night

Disillusion has an edge so sharp
It tears at your soul and leaves a stain upon your heart
I need you, to wash mine clean
You've felt it too, and you need me

Let me be your shelter, shelter
From a storm outside
Let me be your shelter, shelter
From the endless night

You're struggle with darkness has left you blind
I'll light the fire in your eyes
You're struggle with darkness has left you blind
I'll light the fire in your eyes

Let me be your shelter, shelter
From a storm outside
Let me be your shelter, shelter
From the endless night

Let me be your shelter, shelter
Let me be your shelter, shelter

Lone Justice - Wheels

I wish you never even loved me
It makes it so hard to live without love
Now I know you're often thinking of me
Sometimes I feel you so close by that it takes
All my might to keep from trying to track you down

I can surely keep you out of sight
Forget about the way you look, your smile, the way you speak
But I've heard in the dead of night
Outside my window silence breaking with the solid
Destination of your lonesome speed

I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels

I had a handle on my sorrow
My composure was in order if not sufficiently intact
But every reminiscent echo
Brings a blow to chill my senses and my heart quakes
And tenses 'til those moments pass

I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels

Every trace, every vision
Brings my emotions to collision
Past love's lost tokens
Every cherished thought once spoken
False hope of reconciliation

I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I know the sound of your wheels

Genesis Domino Part One "In The Glow Of The Night"

The grey of evening
Fills the room
No need to look outside
To see or feel the rain
I reach across to touch her
But I know that she's not there
Rain keeps running down the window pane
Time keeps running out for me

Can't you see what you are doing to me
Can't you see what you have done
As I try to pass another long and sleepless night
As a hundred crazy voices call my name
As I try to pass them by
I almost can believe that she is here
Here in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done
Do you know what you've begun
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

All the lonely people, empty rooms
And all the pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again

Sheets of double glazing
Help to keep outside the night
Only foreign city sirens can cut through
Nylon sheets and blankets
Help to minimize the cold
But they can't keep out the chilling sounds
Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming
That she is here with me
Here in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done
Do you know what you've begun
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

All the lonely people, empty rooms
And all the pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again
