God of the Sun
Written by gerry beckley, ©1977
Found on harbor and highway.

God of the sun
Don't make me wait till the morning comes
Light in the sky
Look me in the eye, eye, eye, eye

Don't, keep me waiting around
Too much longer now
Don't, don't keep me waiting around, around, around, around

When I called you from my river of darkness
An echo was all that came back
Saw you wave goodbye
Down the railroad track
Sometimes when you're out and all alone
And you can't find your way back
Wonder if you'll ever make it home

God of the sun
I'll be around till the day's begun
One sight of your ray
Takes the night away, away, away, away

Oh, but when I walk through that door
Take my hat and my coat off waiting for you to call
I tell you not right now, lady, I got work on my mind
And I'll talk to you soon
Always remember

When I called you from my river of darkness
An echo was all that came back
I saw you wave goodbye
Down the railroad track
Sometimes when you're out and all alone
And you can't find your way back
Wonder if we'll ever make it home
No moreback to top
Slow Down
Written by dan peek, ©1977
Found on harbor.

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
You wear your stockings like you think it's a sin
Don't try to tell me you ain't been where you been
'cause I know that you've been messin' round with him

So slow down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Come on down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Oh down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Before it gets too late
Before it gets too late

I met you dancin' at the high school gym
You rubbed against me my head started to spin
You turned around gave me a wink and a grin
And then you told me that you'd like to be friends

Don't slow down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Don't slow down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Don't slow down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Don't slow down
Before it gets too late
Before it gets too late
Take it!

(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
On down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
On down
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Don't try to tell me
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
You'll never sell me
(bop shoo wop, you'd better slow down)
Before it gets too late
I said before it gets too late
You know before it gets too late
Oh, heyback to top
Don't Cry Baby
Written by dan peek, ©1977
Found on harbor.

Starlight falling through your hair
Sometimes I wonder if you know I'm there
Awake in the morning a smile on your face
The same old feeling that I just can't place

And you say don't cry, baby
You know I'll always be the one who cares
Don't cry, baby
Come closer let me wipe away your tears

A man came in with a violin
He played for me like I've never been
Courted before and forevermore
As the bow touched the strings
He made the whole world sing

Don't cry, baby (baby, don't you cry)
You know there'll always be someone who cares
Don't cry, baby (baby, don't you cry)
Come closer let me wipe away your tears

I know I've been wrong
You've had to be strong
I guess I belong to you, my baby (baby, don't you cry)
You know I'll always be the one who cares
Don't cry baby (baby, don't you cry)
Come closer let me wipe away your tears

The sound of your voice singing songs in the night
Have taken me far away and mystified
The songs of the lovers brought tears to my eyes
The words that you'd spoken made me realizeback to top
Now She's Gone
Written by gerry beckley, ©1977
Found on harbor.

Please believe in me
Though my love is hard to see
Now she's gone (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
I'll remain (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
But these tears (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
I can't contain (she's gone, she's gone)

So can I count on you to be my light to guide me
Right through the night beside me
Is it all right to count on you

Smile away these blues
I don't care if I'm accused
Now she's gone (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
I don't mind (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
But, I got a feelin' (she's gone, she's gone, she's gone)
It's all designed (she's gone, she's gone)

To make me call on you to be my light to guide me
Right through the night beside me
Is it all right to call on youback to top
Political Poachers
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1977
Found on harbor.

Someone told me you got to be free
Someone told me to stand in the rear
Keep on searchin' for kings in the street
Keep on cryin' for something that's clear

You are one more posse to pass in the night
One more con to conceal
One more tiger to paint on a stripe
One more player to deal

Political poachers push plump packages
Past pacified places
Concerned citizens cry crude conduct
'cause captain command
Don't do dreams
Do dreary drivel drive
Doctor, daddy divine
Prize shipment tonight, tomorrow tame tempers
To touch tender time

You are one more posse to pass in the night
One more con to conceal
One more tiger to paint on a stripe
One more player to deal

You are one more posse to pass in the night
One more con to conceal
One more tiger to paint on a stripe
One more player to deal

It takes one more moment of time in your life
One more light to reveal
One more place in the sun to turn ripe
One more kingdom to feel

You are one more posse to pass in the night
One more con to conceal
One more tiger to paint on a stripe
One more player to deal

It takes one more moment of time in your life
One more light to reveal
One more place in the sun to turn ripe
One more kingdom to feelback to top
Sarah
Written by gerry beckley, ©1977
Found on harbor and highway.

Sarah, please
Where is the love you said you'd save for me
Am I a fool to think that something's strange
I think you've changed

Golly, dad
She was the best thing that I ever had
Torn and battered now and due for repair
But she's not there

What does it matter and who really cares
With no one to turn to when she's not there
Ah, but it's all right, I'll get by

Miles apart
Left here standing with a broken heart
Call me names but I'll refuse to cry
Don't ask my why

What does it matter and who really cares
With no one to turn to when she's not there
Ah, but it's all right, I'll get byback to top
Sergeant Darkness
Written by gerry beckley, ©1977
Found on harbor, america live, and highway.

Thank the morning for bringing you
Hope you never turn your head and run
And thank the sun for shining, too
Hope the darkness never comes again
What it does to me
Isn't good to see

You say that fortune brought you
Sailin' cross the sea
I don't believe you
I don't see how it's true
I think my dreamin' brought you here
And if I wake tomorrow will you still be near

Once a miser, twice a son
Three's a devil, four's a lot of fun
Fun for living one and all
Start a battle, who's the first to fall
Hope it isn't me
Have to wait and see

You say that fortune brought you
Sailin' cross the sea
I don't believe you
I don't see how it's true
I think my dreamin' brought you here
If I wake tomorrow will you still be near
Should I live with rain and then the sky will clearback to top
Are You There
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1977
Found on harbor and highway.

The day we lost our voice with little choice, I can't explain
An act of agony
And someone told me too that it's true when you call aloud
It's only destiny
Or is it mystery
But then we came around and sang our song and acted proud
And posed for memory

We made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

I drank a little bit, so underlit to see it now
The show was never seen
And all the time I lost is never lost
It's only thumbing through eternity

We made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

Who are you going to see
What are you going to be

You made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there) ...back to top
These Brown Eyes
Written by dan peek, ©1977
Found on harbor.

These brown eyes of mine
They've been doin' some powerful cryin'
Thinkin' 'bout all those years
That always bring back the tears

Winter's come and gone
And I've been left alone
Now I'm here home with you (I'm here home with you)
I do all the things that you do

Then I stop and I look around
I never know if my feet touch the ground
But oh, baby, I know you're right

Seems like a long, long time
Since I've held you in these arms of mine
Thinkin' 'bout all those years (thinkin' 'bout all those years)
That always bring back the tears

The winter's come and gone
And I've been left all alone
But, oh, baby, I know you're right

And now that you're far away
I think of your love
And I'm praying that you're still mine

These brown eyes of mine
They've been doin' some powerful cryin'
Thinkin' 'bout all those years (thinkin' 'bout all those years)
That always bring back the tears

Then I stop and I look around
I never know if my feet touch the ground
But oh, baby, I know you're right
Baby, I know you're right
Baby, I know you're rightback to top
Monster
Written by gerry beckley, ©1977
Found on harbor.

The monster exposed himself from underground
Burning his face as he ran through the town
Hoping the patrons just don't hear a sound

Heart, court and harmony just ain't the same
My black and their green playing some games
I've got all these pictures I just need the frames

These are the things that you'll never do
Feeding the wife on the phone
And there you are, all on your own

Red and blue, I want to like a hole in the head
It slopes in the middle and is stopping them dead
I'd like to help them; I've already said

These are the things that you'll never do
Running away from your home
And there you are, all on your own
Mm, mm. mm, mm.back to top
Hurricane
Written by dan peek, ©1977
Found on harbor.

Sailin' down the coast of mexico
With a person I loved since long ago
Into a place nobody wants to go

Into a hurricane
Whoa, hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

Heard people screamin' and the sky was torn
I looked around and the faces were so forlorn
No relief, only scorn

In a hurricane
In a hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

Hurricane's just another name
For the torment in a man's soul
His mind is gone
And he starts to lose control

In a hurricane
Oh, the hurricane
Some'll be taken
Some'll remain

How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Everybody talks; nobody really knows
How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Shoo-ba-ree-ba, shoo-ba-ree-ba
Nobody knows

How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Everybody talks; nobody really knows
How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Shoo-ba-ree-ba, shoo-ba-ree-ba ...back to top
Down to the Water
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1977
Found on harbor.

The waves come in
Crash on the shoreline
Salty water, don't you know
It's yours, yours and mine
So grab your girl
And don't go wastin' time
And let's go down to the water tonight

White capped clouds
Dance in the sunlight
Purple fishes watch
And show you some of their delight
The weather's fine
And everything's all right
So let's go down to the water tonight
Let's go down to the water tonight

Come on down, come on down
Come on down, down to the water
Come on down, come on down
Come on down, down to the water
Down to the water

Island music
Sways with a palm tree
Friends of mine lay back
And talk of times that weren't so free
So let's have fun
And that means you and me
And let's go down to the water tonight
Let's go down to the water tonight.

Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water ...back to top
