Daisy Jane
Flyiní me back to memphis
Gotta find my daisy jane
Well, the summerís gone
And I hope sheís feeliní the same

Well, I left her just to roam the city
Thinkiní it would ease the pain
Iím a crazy man
And Iím playiní my crazy game, game

Does she really love me
I think she does
Like the stars above me
I know because
When the sky is bright
Everythingís alright

Flyiní me back to memphis
Honey, keep the oven warm
All the clouds are cleariní
And I think weíre over the storm

Well, Iíve been pickiní it up around me
Daisy, I think Iím sane
And Iím awful glad
And I guess youíre really to blame, blame

Do you really love me
I hope you do
Like the stars above me
How I love you
When itís cold at night
Everythingís alright

Does she really love me
I think she does
Like the stars above me
I know because
When the sky is bright
Everythingís alrightback to top
Half a Man
Written by dan peek, ©1975
Found on hearts.

I'm only half a man
When I'm not by your side
I try to make a plan
And I don't try to hide

So come on over closer to me
And everything will be just like it should be

Why don't you help me
Please don't stand on your pride
I feel so empty
Why don't you let me inside

So come on over closer to me
And everything will be just like it should be

You (you, you, you)
Set my soul on fire
You (you, you, you)
Fill me with desire
When ever I'm near you

I'm only half a man
When I'm not by your side
I try to make a plan
And I don't try to hide

So come on over closer to me
And everything will be just like it should beback to top
Midnight

Found on hearts.

Midnight rolling in, sunlight
Reaching out for your return

As you were running through the tunnel of life
And soon you'll dance around the fire of fright
Tonight

When you're standing on the corner
And the sun is getting hot
Does this day begin to worry you a lot

You are, what you are, too far
Golden star, a ruby light

As you were running through the tunnel of life
And soon you'll dance around the fire of fright
Tonight

When you're standing on the corner
And the sun is getting hot
Does the day begin to worry you a lotback to top
Bell Tree
Written by gerry beckley, ©1975
Found on hearts.

Eyes
Holdin' back the tears
That they've held for years

How can I tell you?
I don't want to make you cry
Why should I even try?
Why should I even try?

Days
Where'd you go so fast
Fin'lly lost at last

How can I tell you?
I don't want to let you down
Why should I even try?
Why should I even try?

How can I tell you?
I don't want to let you down
Why should I even try?
Why should I even try?back to top
Old Virginia
Written by dan peek and catherine peek, ©1975
Found on hearts.

Hey, honey, won't you sit down
And stop here for a spell
Singin' the sweet old lullabies
To forget about your health
Don't think about tomorrow
It's a whole night's sleep away
Sure would be pleased to have you stay

And it's reach out old virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round tends to take away your smile

'pears to me it's all a body can do to stay in tune
And you've been strainin' at those strings
From mornin' till noon
So come on down and hang around
It'll put you right real soon
'cause nothing's changed
It's all the same

Reach out old virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round can take away your smile

Reach out old virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round can take away your smileback to top
People in the Valley
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1975
Found on hearts.

Some came down to hang out by the river
Others were waiting to find the night
We stood long just waiting for the picture
Looking at people to see what was right

Soon came the people
From over in the valley
Hundreds of them walking
Towards us in the rain
Then we turned around
And hid out in the alley
Met along the stones
Down tomorrow day lane

Take away the road and no one will remember
How many journeys we hedged in the stone
Friends around will take away the wonder
Sharing a moment of being alone

Soon came the people
From over in the valley
Hundreds of them walking
Towards us in the rain
And we turned around
And hid out in the alley
Met along the stones
Down tomorrow day lane

Company
Some can see itís poetry
Come as you are in your broken car
The company

Carousel is wishing well
As a wonder night that spoke delight
To the company

Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now
Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now

Broken dream, just a token scheme
Silver man with a telegram
For the company

Scalding blue, come talk to you
Search the cave for the grave
Of the company

Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now
Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now

Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now
Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now

Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you now
Can you hear the summer calling you
Can you hear him call you nowback to top
Woman Tonight
Oh, hold me tight
Won't you be my woman tonight?
Oh, hold me tight
Won't you be my woman tonight?

I get the shivers up and down my spine
The only time I'm happy's when I know she's mine
So hold me, hold me tight

Treat me right
Won't you be my woman tonight?
So treat me right
Won't you be my woman tonight?

First I see you
And then you let me go
The only time I touch you's when you don't wanna know
So hold me, hold me tight, all right.

Hold me tight
Hold me tight
Won't you be my woman tonight
Hold me tight
Won't you be my woman tonight

I get the shivers up and down my spine
The only time I'm happy's when I know she's mine
So, hold me, hold me tight
Hold me tight, woman tonightback to top
The Story of a Teenager
Written by dan peek and gerry beckley, ©1975
Found on hearts.

Boy, please don't throw away your life
All the joy, please don't end it with a knife
'cause you know there's hope for you

I was alone like the silence in the night
I had no home no one close to hold me tight
But you know there's hope for you, for you

Everywhere I look I see your face
Every step I take seems out of place
You got to be a man to run the race
I'm not a hopeless man
How can you say I am?

I was alone like the silence in the night

Sister Golden Hair
Well I tried to make it sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on monday and I got myself undressed
I ainít ready for the altar but I do agree thereís times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkiní íbout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just canít live without you; canít you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesnít mean you ainít been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I donít mind sayiní, I just canít make it

Well, I keep on thinkiní íbout you, sister golden hair surprise

Tomorrow
Written by dan peek, ©1975
Found on hearts.

Time goes on
People burning candles
Will I ever see you tomorrow

When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free
When will it ever be, oh lord, just you and me
When will I ever be free

Life goes on
People turning handles
Making sure I'll be here tomorrow

When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free
When will it ever be, oh lord, just you and me
When will I ever be free

When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free
When will it ever be, oh lord, just you and me
When will I ever be free

When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free
When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free
When will I ever be home from across the sea
When will I ever be free ...back to top
Seasons
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1975
Found on hearts.

First came the winter
And then came the morning
Bright coral branches that pass you again
Down from the meadow and onto the seashore
Came the vast checkerboard kingdom of men

Sun radiates gold infrarays
Time to prepare for the fall
Harvest the corn, watch for the storm
Soon we will hear winter call

Ice on the pond, won't stay too long
Too thin to walk it today
Ice on the pond, something went wrong
Frost must be lost on the way

Evening is falling
The tree is a silhouette
As seen by the teddy bear
Watching his den

Spring came so quickly
That I did not see her
Just turn around
And she's coming again

Wind chimes along, rising at dawn
Seasons in circles too match
Each comes along, singing his song
Burying thoughts of the pastback to top
