Riverside
Living on the riverside taking it all in my stride
Living on the riverside, I'm taking life like a big long ride
You stay on your side and I'll stay on mine
You take what you want and I'll take the sunshine

Dit dit dit dit do ...
Ah--, ah--

I said the world don't owe me no living
I said the world don't owe me no living
I said the world don't owe me no living
I said the world don't owe me no livingback to top
Sandman
Ain't it foggy outside
All the planes have been grounded
Ain't the fire inside?
Let's all go stand around it
Funny, I've been there
And you've been here
And we ain't had no time to drink that beer

'cause I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandoned

Ain't the years gone by fast
I suppose you have missed them
Oh, I almost forgot to ask
Did you hear of my enlistment?

Funny, I've been there
And you've been here
And we ain't had no time to drink that beer

'cause I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandonedback to top
Three Roses
Sitting by the fireside with a book in your hand
Two lazy dogs sittin' watchin' your man
Three roses were bought with you in mind
Three roses were bought with you in mind

I gotta stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want I gotta
Stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want with you
Ah

Walking through a wonderland, I got you by the hand
Every move we made, just as if it were planned
Three roses were bought with you in mind
Three roses were bought with you in mind

I gotta stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want I gotta
Stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want with you

Children
The boy cried out
Gaily on the ground
At the joy
Of something he had found

Aw, come on children, get your heads back together
Aw, come on children, get your heads back together
Aw, come on children, get your heads back together

The days are getting warmer now
The nights are getting shorter now
And you know we can make it 'cause you know we're alive
But we don't have to take it, any way we'll survive

If I were you
I'd throw it far away
But if you were me
You'd tell me I should stay

Aw, come on children, get your heads back together
Aw, come on children, get your heads back together
Aw, come on children, get your heads back together again

Again, again and again and again
Again, and again and again
Again, again, againback to top
A Horse With No Name
On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After nine days I let the horse run free
'cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...back to top
Here
I am thinkin' 'bout the days
We led ourselves astray
In more than many ways
Here, within the time we've spent
Wonderin' what we meant
By livin' all those years
By livin' all those years

We are here with nothing to do today
It's something we can't explain
And tomorrow, where will we be tomorrow?
What will we see today?

I am thinkin' 'bout the days
We led ourselves astray
In more than many ways
(here) here, within the time we've spent
Wonderin' what we meant
By livin' all those years
(here) by livin' all those years
(here) by livin' all those years
(here) by livin' all those years
(here) by livin' all those years

I Need You
We used to laugh, we used to cry
We used to bow our heads then, wonder why
And now you're gone, I guess I'll carry on
And make the best of what you've left to me
Left to me, left to me

I need you like the flower needs the rain
You know I need you, guess I'll start it all again
You know I need you like the winter needs the spring
You know I need you, I need you

And every day, I'd laugh the hours away
Just knowing you were thinking of me
And then it came that I was put to blame
For every story told about me
About me, about me

I need you like the flower needs the rain
You know I need you, guess I'll start it all again
You know I need you, I need you
I need you like the winter needs the spring
You know I need you, guess I'll start it all again
You know I need you, I need you

I need you like the flower needs the rain
You know I need you, guess I'll start it all again
You know I need you, I need you
I need you like the winter needs the spring
You know I need you, guess I'll start it all again
You know I need you, I need you ...back to top
Rainy Day
Written by dan peek, ©1971
Found on america and highway.

Whenever it's a rainy day
I pack my troubles up in my room
I chase all the clouds away
I get myself back to the womb

But I know that you're gonna cry
Tears are runnin' from your eyes
The piece of my life you take
Is one that so often breaks

Whenever you are miles away
I think of you the way you are
Your shining lips, your auburn hair
And then it don't seem quite so far

Well I know that you're gonna cry
Tears are runnin' from your eyes
The piece of my life you take
Is one that so often breaks

Well I know that you're gonna cry
Tears are runnin' from your eyes
The piece of my life you take
Is one that so often breaksback to top
Never Found the Time
Written by dan peek, ©1971
Found on america.

I never found the time
To see things quite through
I never found the time
To give them to you

If living don't come easy
Don't stop your own voice
'cause the worst part of living
Is havin' no choice

Tell me a story
Tell it with your eyes
I'm gonna stop believin'
If I hear another lie
Drink some cold water
Your mouth's getting dry

If I only had the time
To see things right through
I'd give up all my treasures
And send them to you

Then livin' would seem easy
No lights and no noise
Just me and my lady
And the echo of her voice

Tell me a story
Tell it with your eyes
I'm gonna stop believin'
If I hear another lie
Drink some cold water
Your mouth's getting dry

I never found the time
To see into my lady
And memories don't die
But with time become hazy

I never found the time
To see into my lady
And memories don't die
But with time become hazy

I never found the time
To see into my lady
And memories don't die
But with time become hazy

I never found the time ...back to top
Clarice
Written by gerry beckley, ©1971
Found on america.

Clarice lay down your mind, it's there just hard to find
Follow me as we wind our way, away

Behind an open door there lies a million more
Follow me as we wind our way, away

Time is coming soon I'll find you (time is coming soon I'll find you)
Time is coming soon I'll find you (time is coming soon I'll find you)
Time is coming soon, time is coming soon

Behind an open door there lies a million more
Follow me as we wind our way, away

Time is coming soon I'll find you (time is coming soon I'll find you)
Time is coming soon I'll find you (time is coming soon I'll find you)
Time is coming soon, time is coming soonback to top
Donkey Jaw
Written by dan peek, ©1971
Found on america and america's gold.

Ah, get behind me satan
Quit ravishing the land
Does it take the children
To make you understand?

Ah, all across the nation
People don't understand
Does it take the children
To make a better land?

Then, get behind me satan
Quit ravishing the land

Does it take the children
To make you understand?
Does it take the children
To make a better land?back to top
Pigeon Song
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1971
Found on america.

Well, I had me a pigeon
By the name of fred
But I done shot him
In the head

Had me a railroad
Down on the ridge
But I done blowed up
The bridge

Had me a dog
He was my best friend
But to him
I done put an end

Had me a farm
Sittin' pretty on the hill
But if you look
You'll see it ain't there still

I don't know why I done it
Honest, it ain't like me
But I ain't sad now I done it
'cause a baby boy has got to be freeback to top
