Blow the Wind Blow                                        P. Murphy

I can hear you calling, from a mountain high

I can hear you whisper, as a baby sighs

I can hear you howling, on a raging sea

And I can hear you calling, calling to me

 

I can see you coming, down a dusty road

I can see you billow, as the sail unfolds

I can see you swirling, in the autumn leaves

And I can see you coming, coming to me

 

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

I know where you go

 

I can feel your  fingers, on an icy morn

I can feel your chill, right  down to the bone

I can feel comfort, in a summer breeze

Blow the wind blow, blow to me

 

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

I know where you go

 

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

Blow, blow, blow the wind, blow

 

 

When I Dream Of You                                        P. Murphy

When  I  when I dream of you

We do all the things that lovers do

And you whisper in my ear, say all those sweet things I want to hear

When  I  when I dream of you

 

In  my dreams we get along we do

And  do  all the things we used to do

Like when you hold me oh so tight, and you make me feel alright

When  I  when I dream of you

 

Then I wake in the night, find things just aren’t right

Reach out for you, and I’m alone

As the day starts to rise, like a fool I realise

It’s just a dream, and you’re gone

 

When  I  when I dream of you

You’re  too you’re too good to be true

 ‘Cause you tell me that we’ll never part, and you’ll never break my heart

When  I  when I dream of you

 

Then I wake in the night, find things just aren’t right

Reach out for you, and I’m alone

As the day starts to rise, like a fool I realise

It’s just a dream, and you’re gone

 

When  I  when I dream of you

We do all the things that lovers do

And you whisper in my ear, say all those sweet things I want to hear

When  I  when I dream of you

 

When I dream of you

When I dream of you

When I dream of you

 

 

When They Dance                                        P. Murphy

She moves like she’s still young

He holds his only one

Round the floor till the music’s done

When they dance  (when they dance)

 

They were married in fifty four

Raised the children and so much more

Still can’t wait to get out on the floor

When they dance   (when they dance)

 

Through all the good times and the bad

Through the happy, the sad

There’s always been one thing when they get the chance

Out on the floor,  when they dance, when they dance

 

How he loves her embrace

She allows her memory to trace

Along the lines in his face

When they dance   (when they dance)

 

Through all the good times and the bad

Through the happy, the sad

There’s always been one thing when they get the chance

Out on the floor,  when they dance, when they dance

 

How he loves her embrace

She allows her memory to trace

Along the lines in his face

When they dance   (when they dance)

 

When they dance   (when they dance)

When they dance   (when they dance)

 

It’s Time for Going Home                                        P. Murphy

Been so many places you can go

Seen so much the world has to show

Now it’s time, now it’s time, for going home,   going home

 

Done most everything that  can be done

Sown most every seed that can be sown

Now it’s time, now it’s time, for going home,   going home

 

Been a long long time away

Thinking of home every day

Now it’s time, it’s time

For going home, going home to stay

 

Bought most everything that can be sold

Heard most every lie that can be told

Now it’s time, now it’s time, for going home,   going home

 

Been a long long time away

Thinking of home every day

Now it’s time, it’s time

For going home, going home to stay

 

Made my fortune but it’s blown

Spent too many long nights alone

Now it’s time, now it’s time, for going home,   going home

For going home,     going home

 

 

Gone Just Like the Wind                                        P. Murphy

Gone like the wind down a long dusty road

Where, I can’t tell, I don’t know

Never going back to where I’ve been before

Never going back, to be your fool no more

 

Busted those chains to your cold, cold heart

And the vows that we’d never part

You couldn’t love  what you couldn’t  own

I was yours, now I’m gone

 

How many times did I tell you I don’t know

That I was leaving but you’d say it isn’t so

Now I’m never gonna be your fool again

 ‘Cause I’m gone, just like the wind

 

Some lonely night you’ll realise I won’t be back again

 ‘Cause I’m gone, just like the wind

 

How many times did I tell you I don’t know

That I was leaving but you’d say it isn’t so

Now I’m never gonna be your fool again

 ‘Cause I’m gone, just like the wind

 

 ‘Cause I’m gone, just like the wind

 ‘Cause I’m gone, just like the wind

 

 

Cross My Palm With Silver                                        P. Murphy

Cross my palm with silver, look into my crystal ball

I can see your future, and you can know it all

Maybe there’ll be riches, or hard times ahead

Cross my palm with silver, she says

 

Cross my palm with silver, let me read the cards

I’m so very skilful, in matters of the heart

Maybe there’s a stranger, with a love so true

Let me read the cards, just for you

 

But beware the fortune teller, they call Madame Rose

Red scarf in her hair, rings on her fingers and toes

She’ll take your money, steal your heart away

Then soon enough to someone else, you’ll hear her say

 

Cross my palm with silver, look into my eyes

I can see deep in your soul, where the future hides

Maybe there’ll be sadness, or good times instead

Cross my palm with silver, she says

 

But beware the fortune teller, they call Madame Rose

Red scarf in her hair, rings on her fingers and toes

She’ll take your money, steal your heart away

Then soon enough to someone else, you’ll hear her say

 

Cross my palm with silver, she says

Cross my palm with silver, she says

Cross my palm with silver, she says

 

 

You Gotta Move On                                        P. Murphy

Boss said “Son, you oughta know, work is done, gotta let you go

Get your pay, it’s not much, on your way, best of luck

Now it’s hard, so hard, when you’ve been here so long

But you gotta move on, you gottta move on”

 

She said “John”, he said “What?” She said “This love is on the rocks

Tried so hard, can’t take no more, so I’m walkin’ out that door

And it’s sad, so sad, when a lovin’ feeling’s gone

But you gotta move on, you gottta move on”

 

And I’ll be alright, find a new life

Make a new start, break a few hearts

Until then, I’ll get along

 ‘Cause you gotta move on, you gottta move on

 

Instrumental

 

And I’ll be alright, find a new life

Make a new start, break a few hearts

Until then, I’ll get along

 ‘Cause you gotta move on, you gottta move on

 

Found a new place, to lay my head, but some folks, they saw red

Seems my will’s, and my won’t’s, don’t quite fit their do’s and don’t’s

Now you gotta know, you gotta know, when it’s time to move along

And you gotta move on, you gottta move on

You gotta move on, you gottta move on

 

 

Flown Away                                        D. Goodwin

Flown away,     flown away,    flown away

Flown away,     flown away, you won’t come back again

 

I would have flown away

Flown all the way with you my love

If you had asked me to

Come away with you, I would have not stayed

 

We grew up together          

Walked hand in hand as we grew

Vowed our love forever

But would life be so true

                                                               

I would have flown away

Flown all the way with you my love

If you had asked me to

Come away with you, I would have not stayed

 

You found love with another

And I was left here all alone

All I have left to remember

Is memories of our love now gone                                  

 

I would have flown away

Flown all the way with you my love

If you had asked me to

Come away with you, I would have not stayed

     

Flown away,     flown away,    flown away

Flown away,     flown away, you won’t come back again

 

 

That Was Maryanne                                        P. Murphy

Came in on a summer’s eve, as if she’d just walked out of a dream

And that’s how it  began

Ruby lips and flaxen hair, beauty beyond compare

Aah, that was Maryanne

 

Through summer days and summer nights, so full of sweet delight

She tried to make him understand

Before the cold winds blow, she would have to go

Aah, that was Maryanne

 

She came and went on a summer breeze, always said she’d have to leave

But like a fool he thought it would never end

Then came the day they had to part, she took a little piece of his heart

To remember, she said, every now and then, that was Maryanne

 

Now as cold winds blow, he remembers long ago

When he was a younger man

And often times he wonders, if she ever remembers

Aah, that was Maryanne

 

She came and went on a summer breeze, always said she’d have to leave

But like a fool he thought it would never end

Then came the day they had to part, she took a little piece of his heart

To remember, she said, every now and then, that was Maryanne

That was Maryanne, that was Maryanne

 

 

Leaves on the Autumn Wind                                        B. Price

A thought for our tomorrows, good times lay instead

Many of us will falter, never to get far ahead

We all share a moment, sometimes many a year

Good times with children, far outweigh the shedding of tears

 

A child is like an autumn leaf, drifting on the wind

Some fly higher than others, leaves on the autumn wind

Flying much higher with silver, gossamer wings

Seeds of love to wander, leaves on the autumn wind

 

Each one does the best it can, reaching the warm bright sun

Laughing with glee, all can see, fruits, our loved ones

We all share a moment, sometimes it’s many a year

Good times with children, far outweigh the shedding of tears

 

A child is like an autumn leaf, drifting on the wind

Some fly higher than others, leaves on the autumn wind

Flying much higher with silver, gossamer wings

Seeds of love to wander, leaves on the autumn wind

 

Seeds of love to wander, leaves on the autumn wind

There’s a place so they say

Taking One Day at a Time                                        P. Murphy

One day at a time, one day at a time

We’re taking one day at a time

I can be yours, you can be mine

Taking one day at a time

 

One night at a time, one night at a time

We’re taking one night at a time

Your eyes meet mine, our stars align

Taking one night at a time

 

We don’t talk about tomorrow or forever

We don’t go making all kinds of plans

We don’t need now for sooner or for better

It’s already right here in our hands

 

One step at a time, one step at a time

We’re taking one step at a time

Can tell by your smile, we’re doing fine

Taking one step at a time

 

We don’t talk about tomorrow or forever

We don’t go making all kinds of plans

We don’t need now for sooner or for better

It’s already right here in our hands

 

One day at a time, one day at a time

Yes taking one day at a time

We’re taking one day at a time

 

 

Ooh What You Doing                                        D. Goodwin

Ooh what you doing,

Coming on back around here?

I told you not to come back again,

And darling that’s quite clear.

 

Met you when we were only young.

Holding hands in the morning sun.

Then you left and went far away.

Leaving me to find my way alone.

 

Ooh what you doing,

Coming on back around here?

I told you not to come back again,

And darling that’s quite clear.

 

You came back many times to me.

Wanting me back, oh so desperately.

Only to leave time and time again.

Leaving me to find my way all alone.

 

Ooh what you doing,

Coming on back around here?

I told you not to come back again,

And darling that’s quite clear.

 

Out on my own, finding my way around.

Built me a life, now I proud and free.

Met a new love, he’s so good to me.

My future’s looking bright, I’m as strong as can be.

 

Ooh what you doing,

Coming on back around here?

I told you not to come back again,

And darling that’s quite clear.

 

 

In the Dreams of a Fool                                        P. Murphy

In the dreams of a fool

I spend  so many happy hours with you

That’s how it is

In the dreams of a fool

 

I wait all the day long

For those sweet hours of night to come

 ‘Cause that’s when I live

In the dreams of a fool

 

Then in the cold grey dawn, I realise you’re gone

And all that’s left is a lonely world, until the night time comes

 

I know I let you slip away

And daylight reminds me of the price I pay

For living

In the dreams of a fool

 

Then in the cold grey dawn, I realise you’re gone

And all that’s left is a lonely world, until the night time comes

 

In the dreams of a fool

I spend  so many happy hours with you

That’s how it is

In the dreams of a fool

Living, in the dreams of a fool

 

 

Old Friends                                        P. Murphy

Old friends, good wine

They say get better with time

Now good wine I don’t know, but I can tell you that it’s so

If they’re talking about those good old friends of mine

 

Old friends, can be cruel to be kind

And still look you straight in the eye

They  tell you how it is, even when it hurts a bit

 ‘Cause old friends  don’t tell no lies   (But)

 

When you’re feeling blue, they look out for you

 ‘Cause that’s what old friends do

They know just when to call, pick you up when you fall

 ‘Cause they’re old friends, old friends after all

 

When old friends, don’t have you on their mind

They know you’re out there doin’ fine

But on old friends, you know you can depend

When fairweather  friends are hard to find     (And)

 

When you’re feeling blue, they look out for you

 ‘Cause that’s what old friends do

They know just when to call, pick you up when you fall

 ‘Cause they’re old friends, old friends after all

 

 ‘Cause they’re old friends, old friends after all

 

 

Hold Me Tighter                                        D. Goodwin

We married early against our parents

Ventured out there to find our own way

Found ourselves jobs and our first home

Living from pay to pay

 

Had our first child she was perfect

Made a family then she left us

Questioned our lives and our future

And for the first time we cried                                           

 

Hold me tighter, don’t let go

We have a long way to travel along that road

Life gets harder don’t you know

We have a long long way to go

 

Two more children came to our house

Again a family stronger than ever

Opportunities in a new town

Moving forward as one

 

Hold me tighter, don’t let go

We have a long way to travel along that road

Life gets harder don’t you know

We have a long long way to go

 

Parents gone now  never forgiven

All we wanted  was there blessing

When our children move forward in their lives

Give us the strength to let them go

 

Hold me tighter, don’t let go

We have a long way to travel along that road

Life gets harder don’t you know

We have a long long way to go

    

I’m holding on tighter  I won’t let you go                                                 

Yes there’s a long long way to go, yes there’s a long long way to go

 

In Memories                                        P. Murphy

In memories, we are young

And we do what’s never been done

We can win another’s heart

In memories, that’s how we are

 

In memories, bittersweet

We had the world at our feet

Oh what plans, what could have been

In memories, bittersweet       (but)

 

How we’d laugh, how we’d sing

Oh what joy love would bring

We could dance the night away

We could turn night into day

 

In these days, no longer young

And we’ve done what we’ve done

Now and then, we slip away

In memories,  of younger days     (and)

 

How we’d laugh, how we’d sing

Oh what joy love would bring

We could dance the night away

We could turn night into day

In memories, in memories, in memories, in memories

 

 

The Passing of Time                                        B. Price

The moon is high above the tree tops

Glow of the morning sun yet to show

The stars will dim with the dawning

Another day is on the go

 

A story is for us now to tell

For children this is part of life

To love the people that we live with

For friends can be for life

 

The sun sits high in the heavens above

Comforts the need to love of life

Toil and respect we have worked for   

Is not lost with the passing of time.

 

Instrumental

 

Cherish the days, and all its seasons

Life is a treasure, a gift to be hold

Life is passed on, in the stories  ‘cause

When tomorrow comes, it's the passing of time

 

The sun sits high, in the heavens above

Comforts the need to love of life

Toil and respect, we have worked for   

Is not lost with the passing of time.

 

Is not lost with the passing of time.

 

 

We Had the Last Dance                                        P. Murphy

I remember that wonderful night

The dance was nearly through

And a lonely heart took a chance

On a smile across the room

 

Walked right over you took my hand

Just as I hoped it would be

The band played “Who’s Taking You Home Tonight?”

And you danced so close to me

 

We had the last dance

I fell in love with you

And I wondered if you, could fall for me too

Before the last dance was through

 

Now the years have come and gone

Since your smile across the room

On a wonderful night we fell in love

Before the last dance was through

 

We had the last dance

I fell in love with you

And I wondered if you, could fall for me too

Before the last dance was through

 

We had the last dance

I fell in love with you

And I wondered if you, could fall for me too

Before the last dance was through

And I wondered if you, could fall for me too

Before the last dance was through

 

Don’t Break This Heart Again                                        P. Murphy

Don’t break this heart again

Don’t take this love and then

Say it’s all over again

Don’t break this heart again

 

You took this love one day

Then you just threw it all away

That’s not how true love should end

Don’t break this heart again

 

Don’t break this heart again

Don’t take this love and then

Say it’s all over again

Don’t break this heart again

 

So you’ve come back once more

Just like you’ve done before

Please don’t take this love in vain

Don’t break this heart again

 

Don’t break this heart again

Don’t take this love and then

Say it’s all over again

Don’t break this heart again

 

Don’t break this heart again

Don’t take this love and then

Say it’s all over again

Don’t break this heart again

 

Don’t say it’s all over again

Don’t break this heart again

 

 

Where the Journey Ends                                        P. Murphy

Like a river that flows, so surely to the sea

This lonely road, rolls out in front of me

And I only know, that I won’t be back again

But I wanna know where the journey ends

 

What’s that I see, way on up ahead

Is it a place, where I can lay my weary head

Or is it the road, that just goes on and on again

I wanna know where the journey ends

 

I wanna know, I wanna know

Where it ends, where the journey ends

Give me a sign, tell me where to go

I wanna know where the journey ends

 

Travelled this road, such a long, long, lonely time

Looking to find, someone to share this load of mine

On this road, this road of life and then

I’ll know where the journey ends

 

I wanna know, I wanna know

Where it ends, where the journey ends

Give me a sign, tell me where to go

I wanna know where the journey ends

Instrumental

I wanna know where the journey ends

I wanna know where the journey ends,   where the journey ends
