Back Home Again Lyrics

I wish I wish upon a star

Wondering where the lost friends are

Some nights I like to pretend

We could light their way back home again

 

I knew your voice so many years

Your songs are now my souvenirs 

They keep your memory in my heart

Thru the days and thru the dark

 

In dreams..I’m still rolling down the road with you

All around the world and back again

Faces and places so many we have seen

Your soul set the course my treasured friend

 

One for sorrow two for joy

Makes a man out of a boy

Rest assured we’ll hold you tight

And surround you in our love and light

 

Traveling down Woodys roads

Opening doors and lightening loads

Singing like you didn’t have to try

With A voice out of the clear blue sky

 

Bravest thing I’ve ever seen

The night you sang Goodnight Irene

Your wishes all rolled into one

Take care of my only son

In dreams..I’m still rolling down the road with you

All around the world and back again

Faces and places so many we have seen

Your soul set the course my treasured friend

 

I wish I wish upon a star

Wondering where the lost friends are

Some nights I like to pretend

We could light their way back home again

Floating On A Song Lyrics

Heard you're leaving...moving along

Takin the ball... going home

Wish you’d stay..I still wanna play

We got time for one more song

 

Speaking for me..and everyone I see

All your pain just feels so wrong

Time's too short ...keeps rolling along

Sure gonna miss you when you're gone

 

On a bus to St Cloud 

There's a face out in the crowd

and a heart you're missing up there

See your Oklahoma home

I know how you love to roam

Find an angel with a prayer 

 

Maybe I’m selfish...maybe I’m scared

Getting dark...too dark to see

Friends been leavin’...disappear like smoke

Maybe the next train’s coming for me

 

Take a bus to St Cloud

Find a face out in the crowd

and a heart you're missing up there

See your Oklahoma home

Woody's road and Buffalo

Find an angel with a prayer

 

I Been driving all night long 

playing all your songs...singing along

Got this crazy dream...crazy so it seems

You’re just floating....floating....on a song

 

Hear you calling from across the plains

Words are falling like diamond rain

Voice like velvet, love and pain

That’s how it must remain

That’s how it must remain

 

Heard you were leaving...had enough of this world

Never be a moment...you're alone

Wish you'd stay...still wanna play

Close your eyes..you're going home

Close your eyes..you’re going home

Close your eyes

Sing A Little Song Lyrics

Jimmy went down...walking on a river road

Wandering round...singing bout a heavy load

Not one worry bout who might hear , No worries at all

Only other sound was a mockingbird call...singin’

 

Woo woo come a little closer..take a look and see 

Whoa whoa singing to the birds and bees

Ooh lah listen to the melody, coming thru the trees

Coo coo sing a little song with me

 

Jimmy walked on...out into the night aire 

Whistling a song...brother didn’t have a care

Not one worry bout who might hear, no worries at all

Echoing the sounds of a mockingbird call...singin’

 

Woo woo come a little closer..take a look and see 

Whoa whoa singing with the birds and the bees

Ooh lah listen to the melody, coming thru the trees

Coo coo sing a little song with me

 

Singing bout the poor man, old souls

Young girls, and old crows

Red dirt, corn rows....baby can’t ya see

What cha doing to me....?

 

Morning come around...quiet as the dawn can be

Jimmy sat down...leaning on a big oak tree

Little bird lands on his shoulder, tells everything he knows

Takes to the sky but before he goes...he sings

 

Woo woo come a little closer..take a look and see 

Whoa whoa sing about the birds and the bees

Ooh lah la listen to the melody, coming thru the trees

Coo coo sing a little song with me
