    Geordie Melody
    Alan Price Side 2 (45) Posted by Jean


    On my street we used to live beside the river
    On my street we used to watch the ships go sailing by
    On my street we used to watch the sunlight through the smoke
    And all the sentimental things we did will never come along again
    ---------------------
    Mention me to my friends up north when you visit
    And tell them I think of them each lonely minute
    I missed the football game last time, it’s just not the same
    And tell them to keep my chair warm I'll be home
    Well I can drink myself blind
    But I still can’t find my way back home
    Towns come ten a penny but there isn’t any other like my home
    I’m talking about Savaloy Dips Sunday afternoon trips
    Pease pudding, pork pie, smoke can still get in your eyes
    Now urban renewel will never be the fuel that will light my fire
    Who wants a son who will never see the sun
    Cos the streets are getting higher and higher
    I’m talking about Savaloy dips, Sunday afternoon trips
    Pease pudding, pork pie smoke can still get in your eyes

    Keep the people free, oh it doesn’t make sense to me
    Without all the people where ever would we be
    Without Savaloy Dips Sunday afternoon trips
    Pease pudding, pork pie smoke can still get in your eyes
    Although they’re trying to kill and do away with he will
    of the people to think
    There’s more to a man than a military band
    And keeping him down with demon drink
    I’m talking about Savaloy Dips, Sunday afternoon trips
    Pease pudding, pork pie, smoke can still get in your eyes.
    ----------------------
    Old men sitting on a dirty pier waiting for the fish and drinking beer
    Old men never show any fear,
    Cause they’ve left it behind them in the morning
    Young men sitting in a corner bar
    Dreaming of a life without their ma
    They think they’re not getting very far
    ‘Cos they’ve left it behind them in the morning
    Young girls working on the factory floor
    Dreaming all the dreams of the night before
    Wishing they’d got a rich man in store
    But they’ve left it behind them in the morning
    -------------------
    The street lights shine o’er the faces smiling bravely
    The street lights shine on every mother’s little baby
    But I’m there, in the dark
    Please give me your heart
    The street doors closed all the lives lived in seclusion
    The warm fires flicker and reflect the great illusion
    But I’m there, in the fire
    Pleaase give me my desire
    The street lies sleeping beneath the night sky weeping
    The cat cries echoing down the back lanes landing
    On my heels that are here
    Please give me your fears
    ---------------------------
    On my street we used to live beside the river
    On my street we used to watch the ships go sailing by
    On my street we used to watch the sunlight through the smoke
    And all the sentimental things we did will never come along again.

    Getting Mighty Crowded
    By Van McCoy
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    I'm packing up my memories
    I'm gonna move on out of your life
    Stop wasting my time
    I'm gonna move on out of your life

    'Cos there ain't room enough for two
    In dreams that were made for me and you
    What can I do?
    It's too crowded for me

    I'm in this shape of mind
    I'm gonna move on out of your life
    Stop wasting my time
    I'm gonna move on out of your life

    'Cos there ain't room enough for three
    In dreams that were made for you and me
    And so you see
    It's too crowded for me

    I'm saving you the trouble of putting me down
    Stop on the double, yeah
    I'm gonna shop around

    I'll find myself a heart I don't have to share
    With nobody else
    Find myself a heart I don't have to share
    With nobody else

    You didn't treat me like you should
    Sticking around this neighborhood is just no good
    It's too crowded for me

    I'm trying to tell you there's too many people
    Too many people by my side
    You know I'm never gonna keep you satisfied
    Baby don't you know that no no no no no
    I said a-hey hey hey...

    Girl Of The North Country
    Album: Geordie Roots and Branches. Posted by Diana

    Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
    Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
    Remember me to one who lives there.
    She once was a true love of mine.

    Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
    When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
    Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
    To keep her from the howlin' winds.

    Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
    If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
    Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
    That's the way I remember her best.

    I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
    Many times I've often prayed
    In the darkness of my night,
    In the brightness of my day.

    So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
    Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
    Remember me to one who lives there.
    She once was a true love of mine.

    Glass Mountain
    Album: Shouts Across the Street. Posted by hollyh


    I'm tryin' to work it out all by myself
    I'm tryin' to work it out all by myself
    But it's gettin' so hard
    It's gettin' so hard
    I'm slidin' down the glass mountain.

    I'm tryin' to make some sense of life
    You know what I mean
    I'm tryin' to make some sense of life
    But it's gettin' so hard
    It's gettin' so hard
    I'm slidin' down the glass mountain.

    Goin' Down Slow (1)
    By Oden
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    Well, I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    Well, I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    You see, my health is failing me
    Lord, and I'm going down to sleep

    I said Mother, please don't send me no doctor
    You know the doctor can't do me no good
    Mother, please don't send me no doctor
    I tell you, the doctor can't do me no good
    I know it was all my fault
    'Cos I didn't do the things that I should

    On the next train south
    You can look for my clothes home
    On the next train south
    I can tell ya, you can look for my clothes home
    Just my clothes are comin' home
    If you don't see my body
    All you can do, all you can do, all you gotta do is moan

    Well, I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    Mother, please don't worry
    I'm telling you this is all in my prayer
    You don't see me any more
    You know I'll just be gone out of this world somewhere
    Out of this world somewhere...



    Goin' Down Slow (2)-
    by Oden (modified version - from live recording)

    Well, I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    Yes, I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    You see, my health is failing me
    And I'm going down slow

    Mother, please don't send me no doctor
    You know the doctor can't do me no good
    Mother, please don't send me no doctor
    Because the doctors can't do me no good
    I realise it was all my fault
    I didn't do the things that I should

    Mother please don’t worry
    Now this is all in my head
    Mother please don’t worry
    Cos this is all in my head
    Because when you see my body again
    You’ll know my soul will belong gone dead
    In the sky somewhere

    On the next train south
    On the next train south
    You can look for my clothes coming home
    On the next train south
    On the next train south
    You can look for my clothes coming home
    And if you don’t see my body mother
    All you gotta do is moan

    On the next train south
    On the next train south
    You can look for my clothes coming home
    On the next train south
    On the next train south
    You can look for my clothes coming home
    And if you don't see my body mother
    All you gotta do is moan
    Night and day
    Night and day
    Well I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more
    Yes I've had my fun
    If I don't get well no more

    You see my health is failing me
    And I'm going down
    And I'm going down
    And I'm going down
    Going down slow-ow-ow
    Going down slow..

    Greensleeves
    Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh


    Alas why have you done me wrong
    To cut me off by leaving me
    For I've been loving you so long
    What can you gain by bleeding me?

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    I'll do whatever you demand
    Devote myself to pleasing you
    I'd give my all to understand
    What you desire, I'd gladly do.

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    The days are long, the nighttimes too
    I've lost the thing that I most need
    This aching heart, it beats for you
    As hopes and dreams they do recede

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    I bid you, darling, sad farewell
    May all your dreams be realized
    And whosoever weds you, well,
    He'll be in heaven before he dies

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves was my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves.

    Grim FairyTale
    Album: A Price On His Head. Posted by hollyh



    Here's the stop where the bus always leaves
    For my old job
    Seven pennies on the nose
    Takes you on up the road
    To my old job

    But I don't go to work at all
    I lie around having a great big ball
    'Cos those sweet, sweet little X's
    Brought me lots of successes
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did

    And be unhappy

    'Cos I lost the only girl I had
    She was too good for me
    She was the only one I had
    Who made the time pass pleasantly

    So I'm alone and blue
    Nothing in the world to do
    But just feel sorry for myself
    Never thinking of anyone else

    But I don't go to work at all
    I lie around having a great big ball
    'Cos those sweet, sweet little X's
    Brought me lots of successes
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did

    And be unhappy

    'Cos I lost the only girl I had
    She was too good for me
    She was the only one I had
    Who made the time pass pleasantly

    So I'm alone and blue
    Nothing in the world to do
    But just feel sorry for myself
    Never thinking of anyone else

    Here's the stop where the bus always leaves
    And I am glad
    I'm the one who owns the bus and takes the people off to work
    Now ain't that sad
    I'm the one who takes them home
    I love to press the bell and wear the uniform
    'Cos those sweet, sweet little X's
    Brought me lots of successes
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did
    And be unhappy
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did
    Don't you know that any fool can win the pools
    Like I did

    Groovy Times
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by Jean


    You've said that you will be with me
    As long as time goes on
    You've said that we can live a life
    Full of dreams, so now dream on
    And you will have groovy times, groovy times,
    Groovy times with me
    I know that soon we'll have our day
    And we will say I do
    From that day on I'll make you smile
    And all my soul will belong to you
    And we will have groovy times, groovy times,
    Groovy times, you'll see.
