    Bob Dylan - Don't think Twice, It's All Right

    Bob Dylan - Don't think Twice, It's All Right (1962)



    "Don't Think Twice It's All Right"

    Well, it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    If'n you don't know by now
    And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    It'll never do somehow

    When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
    Look out your window, and I'll be gone
    You're the reason I'm a-traveling on
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    And it ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
    The light I never knowed
    And it ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
    I'm on the dark side of the road

    But I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
    To try and make me change my mind and stay
    But we never did too much talking anyway
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    So it ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
    Like you never done before
    And it ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
    I can't hear you any more

    I'm a-thinking and a-wonderin' walking down the road
    I once loved a woman, a child I am told
    I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    So long honey, baby
    Where I'm bound, I can't tell
    Goodbye's too good a word, babe
    So I'll just say fare thee well

    I ain't a-saying you treated me unkind
    You could have done better but I don't mind
    You just kinda wasted my precious time
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    Van Halen - Light Up The Sky

    Van Halen - Light Up The Sky (1979)



    "Light Up The Sky"

    Yeah, we're all fast breakers
    Comin' out of the gates,
    Takin' chances. We're the crash and burn.
    Yeah, there is a way with beauty,
    But you never gave a love.
    Cross the line where none return.

    I watch my television; almost lost my mind.
    It said, "Open your eyes. Leave it all behind."

    I heard the wind a-whisperin',
    Strong magic comin' on!
    It's comin' out for sure.
    Come see your children;
    Yeah, they're lighting up the skies.
    Won't recognize them any more.

    Wolves at my door wised up quick.
    Turn here and gone
    From on the go.
    Seems the old folks who come up short
    Were the pretty little kids
    Who didn't want it. No.

    Oh, I had some crazy vision, one I can't deny,
    And it said, "Open my eyes. Leave it all behind."

    I heard the wind a-whisperin',
    Strong magic comin' on!
    It's comin' out for sure.
    Come see your children;
    Yeah, they're lighting up the skies.
    You won't recognize them any more.

    Ooh, mama, see the firelights.
    Ooh, we're comin' out tonight.
    Ooh, mama, see the firelights.
    Ooh, lightin' up the sky.
    Light 'em up!

    Lighting up the sky.
    Lighting up the sky.
    Lighting up the sky.
    Lighting up the sky.

    Light 'em up!

    Barbra Streisand - Woman In Love

    Barbra Streisand - Woman In Love (1979)



    "Woman In Love"

    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone
    It's a lonelier place
    I kiss the morning goodbye
    But down inside, you know we never know why
    The road is narrow and long
    When eyes meet eyes
    And the feeling is strong
    I turn away from the wall
    I stumble and fall
    But I give you it all

    I am a woman in love
    And I'd do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again
    What do I do

    With you eternally mine
    In love there is no measure of time
    We planned it all at the start
    But you and I live in each other's heart
    We may be oceans away
    You'll feel my love
    I hear what you say
    No truth is ever a lie
    I stumble and fall
    But I give you it all

    I am a woman in love
    And I'd do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again
    What do I do

    I am a woman in love
    And I'm talking to you
    You know I know how you feel
    What a woman can do
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again

    I am a woman in love
    And I'd do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again

    Joni Mitchell - Blue

    Joni Mitchell - Blue (1971)




    "Blue"

    Blue songs are like tattoos
    You know I've been to sea before
    Crown and anchor me
    Or let me sail away

    Hey Blue,
    There is a song for you
    Ink on a pin
    Underneath the skin
    An empty space to fill in

    Well there's so many sinking now
    You've got to keep thinking
    You can make it through these waves
    Acid, booze, and ass
    Needles, guns, and grass
    Lots of laughs, lots of laughs

    Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go
    Well I don't think so
    But I'm gonna take a look around it though
    Blue, I love you

    Blue, here is a shell for you
    Inside you'll hear a sigh
    A foggy lullaby
    There is your song from me

    Willie Nelson - Devil in a Sleepin' Bag

    Willie Nelson - Devil in a Sleepin' Bag (1973)



    "Devil In A Sleepin' Bag"

    We were headed home in Austin
    Caught pneumonia on the road
    Taking it home to Connie and the kids
    A wheel ran off and jumped a railroad
    Then ran through a grocery store

    If you want to buy a bus I'm taking bids
    And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag
    He said traveling on the road is such a drag
    If we can make it home by Friday we can brag
    And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag

    [guitar]

    Well I just got back from New York City
    Kris and Rita done it all
    Raw perfection there for all the world to see
    Lord I heard an angel singing
    In the Philharmonic Hall
    Rita Coolidge Rita Coolidge cleft for me
    And the devil shivered...
    And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag

    Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now

    Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now (1966)



    Joni Mitchell in 2022



    "Both Sides Now"

    Rows and floes of angel hair
    And ice cream castles in the air
    And feather canyons everywhere
    I've looked at clouds that way

    But now they only block the sun
    They rain and snow on everyone
    So many things I would have done
    But clouds got in my way

    I've looked at clouds from both sides now
    From up and down, and still somehow
    It's cloud illusions I recall
    I really don't know clouds at all

    Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
    The dizzy dancing way you feel
    As every fairy tale comes real
    I've looked at love that way

    But now it's just another show
    You leave 'em laughing when you go
    And if you care, don't let them know
    Don't give yourself away

    I've looked at love from both sides now
    From give and take, and still somehow
    It's love's illusions I recall
    I really don't know love at all

    Tears and fears and feeling proud
    To say "I love you" right out loud
    Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
    I've looked at life that way

    But now old friends are acting strange
    They shake their heads, they say I've changed
    Well something's lost, but something's gained
    In living every day

    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From win and lose and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life at all

    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From up and down, and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life at all

    Tracy Chapman - Fast Car

    Tracy Chapman - Fast Car (2012)



    Grammys 2024

    Tracy Chapman & Luke Combs - Grammys (2024)



    "Fast Car"

    You got a fast car
    I want a ticket to anywhere
    Maybe we make a deal
    Maybe together we can get somewhere
    Any place is better
    Starting from zero got nothing to lose
    Maybe we'll make something
    Me myself I got nothing to prove

    You got a fast car
    I got a plan to get us out of here
    I been working at the convenience store
    Managed to save just a little bit of money
    Won't have to drive too far
    Just 'cross the border and into the city
    You and I can both get jobs
    And finally see what it means to be living

    See my old man's got a problem
    He live with the bottle that's the way it is
    He says his body's too old for working
    His body's too young to look like his
    My mama went off and left him
    She wanted more from life than he could give
    I said somebody's got to take care of him
    So I quit school and that's what I did

    You got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
    We gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    We go cruising, entertain ourselves
    You still ain't got a job
    And I work in a market as a checkout girl
    I know things will get better
    You'll find work and I'll get promoted
    We'll move out of the shelter
    Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    I got a job that pays all our bills
    You stay out drinking late at the bar
    See more of your friends than you do of your kids
    I'd always hoped for better
    Thought maybe together you and me would find it
    I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
    So take your fast car and keep on driving

    So remember when we were driving driving in your car
    Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so you can fly away?
    You gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way
