Lovely Night
Written by gerry beckley, ©1976
Found on hideaway and highway.

It's a lovely night
It's a lovely night
Well, the sky is clear and the stars are bright
It's a lovely night

But I'll go lookin' for the fallin' rain
Keep on movin', keep on playin' that game
Let's go lookin' for the fallin' rain

It's a lovely night (it's a lovely night)
It's a lovely night (it's a lovely night)
Well, the sky is clear and the stars they are bright
It's a lovely night (it's a lovely night)

But I'll go lookin' for the fallin' rain
Keep on movin', keep on playin' that game
Let's go lookin' for the fallin' rain
On this lovely night
This lovely night
On this lovely night

On this lovely night
This lovely night
On this lovely night
Wo ho ho ho ho ho, this lovely night
Wo ho ho ho ho ho, this lovely night
Wo ho ho ho ho ho, this lovely night
Wo ho ho ho ho ho, this lovely nightback to top
Amber Cascades
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1976
Found on hideaway, america live, and highway.

Amber cascades all over today
Then we walk on a crooked catwalk
Only to be delayed
Bubbles of blue burst into two
Eaten up by the incoming tide
Of the new

Then we call to the man who walks on the water
We talk of a plan to stop all the slaughter in view
It's in view

Granite charades are played in the rain
Till we fall through a sand castle window
To avoid the pain
Summer canoe paddles up to you
'cause it's time for another beer run
Or something that's equally true

Then we call to the man who walks on the water
We talk of a plan to stop all the slaughter in view

Then we call to the man who walks on the water
We talk of a plan to stop all the slaughter in view
It's in viewback to top
Don't Let It Get You Down
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1976
Found on hideaway.

Somebody told me that the time was right
To keep on ridin' and to hang on tight
I heard the cry of a dog in the night
But nobody told me it would be all right

Don't let it get you down
But nobody make a sound
Don't let it get you down

We took a ride down a hill that night
The man was crazy but he wouldn't fight
With bullets in his back and money in a sack
We robbed a bank and we never looked back

Don't let it get you down
But nobody make a sound
Don't let it get you down

We took the bank, kept on runnin', but never too slow
The ride was fun and you know we went to mexico
But the action that felt all right
Still haunts me in the night

We took the bank, kept on runnin', but never too slow
The ride was fun and you know we went to mexico
But the action that felt all right
Still haunts me in the night, alright

Don't let it get you down
'cause nobody made a sound
Don't let it get you down
They'll be lucky if we're ever found

Don't let it get you down (don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (don't let it get you down) ...back to top
Can't You See
Written by dan peek, ©1976
Found on hideaway and highway.

Alone, sitting here on my own
There's no place I'd rather be
Or so it seems

Home, miles away from home
And there's no place I'd rather be
Can't you see?

You hold your life in your hands
And no one takes from a man
Who gives the best that he can
To make someone understand

I've flown miles away from home
And there's no place I'd rather be
Can't you see?

You hold your life in your hands
And no one takes from a man
Who gives the best that he can
To make someone understand

Home, miles away from home
And there's no place I'd rather be
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see?
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see?
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see?back to top
Watership Down
Written by gerry beckley, ©1976
Found on hideaway and highway.

Watership down, gather around
There's a story to be told
It's for the young and for the old
You might hear them in the distance
If your ear's to the ground

Whisper it loud, carry the sound
Of the footsteps alone
When they're heading for home
Through the raining of the dangers
And the grayness of the dawn

I can feel there's better days
Well, they're comin', they're comin'
I can see them through the haze
So can you

Watership down, gather around
There's a story to be told
It's for the young and for the old
You might hear them in the distance
If your ear's to the ground

I can feel there's better days
Well, they're comin', they're comin'
I can see them through the haze
So can you

Oo, oo, oo

Watership down, gather around
There's a story to be told
It's for the young and for the old
You might hear them in the distance
If your ear's to the ground

Whisper it loud, carry the sound
Of the footsteps alone
When they're heading for home
Through the raining of the dangers
And the grayness of the dawn.

I can feel there's better days
Well, they're comin', they're comin'
I can see them through the haze
So can you

Oo, oo, oo, oo ...back to top
She's Beside You
Written by dan peek, ©1976
Found on hideaway.

Do wop, do wop ...

You've got to give, you've got to live
You've got to show everyone that you know
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you

You've got to shout all about
You've got to tell everyone that you know
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you

'cause I know just how it feels
To find that love is real, so real

You've got to shout all about
You've got to tell everyone that you know
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you

'cause I know just how it feels
To find that love is real, so real

You've got to give, you've got to live
You've got to show everyone that you know
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you
Till you know she's beside you

She's a Liar
Written by gerry beckley, ©1976
Found on hideaway.

Caroline is falling in and out of love
Try'n' to get those things that she's been thinkin' of
She can't be what she wants to be
Though she never really tries

She's a liar
She's a liar
But I might try her tonight
And if things go right

Caroline is calling everyone in town
First she calls them friends and then she puts them down
She can't be what she wants to be
Though she never really tries

She's a liar
She's a liar
But I might try her tonight
And if things go right

She can't be what she wants to be
Though she never really tries

She's a liar
She's a liar
But I might try her tonight
And if things go right

Wo, she's a liar (she's a liar)
She's a liar (she's a liar)
She's a liar (she's a liar)
She's a liar (she's a liar)
She's a liar (she's a liar)back to top
Letter
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1976
Found on hideaway and highway.

You have one letter left to send
With no beginning and no end
You saw them in the park
The laughter in the dark, oh no
How can you face him and pretend

So now you thank him carefully, oh no
'cause that's the way he's going to be, oh no
I hope you find some reason to be free

There is no sunshine in your eyes
You make no sound and yet you cry
It's not the double cross
You feel the love you lost, oh no
This letter has to say goodbye

So now you thank him carefully, oh no
'cause that's the way he's going to be, oh no
I hope you find some reason to be free

You saw them in the park
The laughter in the dark, oh no
How can you face him and pretend

So now you thank him carefully, oh no
'cause that's the way he's going to be, oh no
I hope you find some reason to be freeback to top
Today's the Day
Hold me close
You turn nighttime into day
And you're the most
Brightest star that lights my way

So come home to me now
'cause it won't matter anyhow
I've got this feeling that today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day

Turn me out
Turn me out on this fine day
'cause all about
All the people like to play

So come home to me now
'cause it won't matter anyhow
I've got this feeling that today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day
I've got this feeling that today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day

Oo, oo ...

Hold me close
You turn nighttime into day
And you're the most
Brightest star that lights my way

So come home to me now
'cause it won't matter anyhow
I've got this feeling that today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day
I've got this feeling that today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day
I've got this feeling today's the day ...back to top
Jet Boy Blue
Written by dan peek and catherine peek, ©1976
Found on hideaway.

Jet boy blue
You steal and you think that it's right
Like a thief in the night
Ah, oh yeah
I'll tell you it's true
You come around with your stories to tell
I don't hold no int'rest
But I let you go
I know you've fallen under his spell
Don't let him kill you
He'll only fill you with lies
You're a fool and you know it
Done your best not to show it
But it's all over
You're through
Jet boy blue
He'll only take you for a ride
Only cost you your pride
Jet boy blue

Stop, stop while you're still ahead
You've got a lot to learn
You're still so young
Listen to what your mama said

Try to tell you go to hell
You're just a kid
Don't take no advice, you never think twice
Close the door
Jump in, don't mention what you did

Stop, stop while you're still ahead
You've got a lot to learn
You're still so young
Listen to what your mama said

You're a fool and you know it
Done your best not to show it
But it's all over
You're through
Jet boy blue
He'll only take you for a ride
Only cost you your pride
Jet boy blue

Stop, stop while you're still ahead
You've got a lot to learn
You're still so young
Listen to what your mama said

Jet boy blue
You steal and you think that it's right
Like a thief in the night

Wo, jet, jet, jet, jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue
Jet boy blue ...back to top
Who Loves You
Written by gerry beckley, ©1976
Found on hideaway and highway.

Love is falling on me
Time will tell how much you mean to me
Can't stop looking in your eyes
Count the stars hiding up in the sky

Look who loves you when you're feelin' down
Just like you're the only one around
Look who loves you when you're feelin' down

Somewhere peace will be found
Past the clouds or somewhere near the ground
Who knows, who really cares?
Take your time as we both climb the stairs

Well, who cares if I live or die
Somebody's always asking why
Who loves you when you're feelin' down

Who's gonna trust you now, boy?
Who's gonna trust you now, boy?
Who's gonna trust you now, boy?
Who's gonna trust you now, boy?

Look who loves you when you're feelin' down
Just like you're the only one around
Look who loves you when you're feelin' down
Just like you're the only one around
Look who loves you when you're feelin' down
Just like you're the only one around
Look who loves you when you're feelin' down
Just like you're the only one around ...back to top
