last song posted was SueR
Come to the barbecue and sit by my side
We couldn't choose a better night if we tried
Can't you imagine what a thrill it will be
Pickin' a chicken with me

It's so romantic, the moon up above
Is extra bright on a night such as this
Pullin' a wishbone with someone you love
Is almost certain to end with a kiss

So come to the barbecue, my darling my dear
I'm so in love with you and when you are near

Eve Boswell



So I pulled up to a neon sign on highway forty-nine
Shut the engine down, took a look around
And then I stepped inside
I asked that bouncer where I was
He said, "Son, you're at Bills"

Honky tonk pickin', line dance kickin'
Razor back stickin', barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and grill

Confederate Railroad


And don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling, save the last dance for me

I'm sitting in the railway station.got a ticket to my destination. On a tour of one-night stands,my suitcase and guitar in hand,and every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band. Homeward bound,I wish I was,homeward bound. Home,where my thoughts escaping,Home,where my music's playing,Home,where my love lies waiting,silently for me. Simon and Garfunkel

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Awaitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Brewer & Shipley

I wonder if this squeaky clean duet have a clue what the song they are covering is about
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=t8tdmaEhMHE


They probably sang it because it contains the words sweet Jesus and sweet Mary. I was in college in 1971 and I tried pot, it didn't do anything for me and I just politely declined it at parties, but it was everywhere on campus and I never passed judgment on all my classmates who were doing it … at a time when the "establishment" was sending thousands of people my age to Vietnam to die... my neighbor and good friend died in Nam, it was an awful time … I found joy in my Orioles who won over 100 games three straight years, and I've always been fanatical about sports, but really … who was I to condemn young people who were using mary janes to mellow out? The great majority of them grew up to be good, hard working, and productive adults.

I love that sound
It's the sound of my shoes

There's something happening here

I'm all about the look that you're giving me

Well, I'm all about a sweet sounding loving spree
So Listen for my melody
And maybe I'm, I'm caught up in the thing that you know I like
You check it one time, baby overnight
See we can make a grand escape
Or we can roll high, by the way
And when we come down, o yeah yeah yeah
We'll be dreaming safe and sound

Rebelution


When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante

Winter is here, and it's cold this time of year.
There's snow everywhere in sight, falling on this winter night.
By candle light, we share this chilly night.
There's frost on the window pane, winter nights are here again.

Sometimes in winter
I love you when the good times
Seem like memories in the spring
That never came

Sometimes in winter
I wish the empty streets
Would fill with laughter
From the tears that ease my pain

Hang your hat on the nail

Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own

Lonely is the night when there's no one left to call
You feel the time is right, say the writing's on the wall

Lonely, lonely, lonely your spirit's sinkin' down
You find you're not the only stranger in this town

Billy Squier


For the words of the prophets
Were written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And echo with the sounds of silence

Subway Terror...
I got my suit on
I got my boot on
I'm goin' down that stairway
Gotta put my glove on
If I get some blood on
My sneakers I don't care
Hey man, I got my ludes
I'm in the mood
They look so lovely and pale
When they kiss the third rail
And they won't step lively anymore

Starz

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

When they insist on knowing my bliss

If I had all the money in the world
I'd probably burn it all
If I had all the riches in the world
I'd surely burn it all

One in a million, money gonna kill a man
Why must we lose control?
Blaze up a fire storm, the people getting higher from
The smoke of another man's gold

Who set the world on fire?
Who set the world on fire?
Who set the world on fire?
It was me, I set the world on fire

my top 10 pick, GREAT SONG


The story is told
Of the power of gold
And its lure on the unsuspecting
It glitters and shines
It badgers it blinds
And constantly needs protecting
Balance the cost
Of the soul you've lost
With the dreams that you've lightly sold
Are you under the power of gold?

ok, so the word is 'and' but one good Fogelberg song deserves another-

Met my old lover in the grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stood behind her in the frozen foods
And I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first
But then her eyes flew open wide
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the check out stand
The food was totaled up and bagged
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
As the conversation lagged

We went to have ourselves a drink or two
But couldn't find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
And we drank it in her car

We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to now
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
But neither one knew how

Dan Fogelberg

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And 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

It's just a heathen town
I hear only evil
As my tongue is tightened

Now I'm so frightened
Because the devil will drag you under
By the sharp tail fin
Of your checkered cab
And I can't sit down
I'm going overboard
In this heathen town

You can take me under
You can give me a lip
You can take me over
You can give me the slip
You can take off everything or tear me off a strip
With a bullet in the chamber and another in the clip

You can miss it by a mile or you can miss by an inch
Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
Or little goody two shoes will feel the pinch

PS I am really glad I started this thread, but aren't we supposed to post the line(s) and then have people guess who it is... and the name of the song as well.

Too many lines and it is also too easy to figure out.

No worries either way, just not my original conception.


you didn't start this thread, go back to the top.
on this thread one posts lyrics from a song and the next picks a word or more from them and posts their choice of lyrics and so on.

if you like the sound of shufflin' feet he can't be beat

And wasn't it me who said Let's just be glad for the time together?
It must've been hard to tell me
That you've given all you had to give
I can understand you're feeling that way
Everybody's got their life to live

Andy, I love your mentions :)

Next:

Billy, he's down by the railroad tracks
Sitting low in the back seat of his Cadillac
Diamond Jackie, she's so intact
As she falls so softly beneath him
Jackie's heels are stacked
Billy's got cleats on his boots
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway
And come back home with the loot
It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no time to get cute
It's a mad dog's promenade
So walk tall
Or baby, don't walk at all.....

(Bruce Juice)- "NYC Serenade"


Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade and the gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of its teeth.

One! singular sensation
Every little step she takes
One! thrilling combination
Every move that she makes
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do
You know you'll never be lonely with you know who
One! moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest
For the girl is second best, to none,son
Oh sigh give her your attention
Do I really have to mention
She's the one

Midnight, on the water
I saw the ocean's daughter
Walking on a wave she came
Staring as she called my name

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head

Breakdown on the shoreline
Can't move it's an ebbtide
Morning, don't get here tonight
Searching for her silver light

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head

Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't I'll go outta my mind

Once I sat upon a hill to watch the world go by
My friend the young magician had forbidden me to cry
But I was the comedian with the laughs in short supply
Shine on silver sun, shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on
The sunlight filtered softly through the pale and watery sky
To catch the mirrored salmon as it rose to take the fly
The flowers on the riverbank were left alone to die
Shine on silver sun, shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on
The church bells sounded midnight as I rose to say goodbye
And a solitary tear fell from the corner of my eye
Shine on silver sun,shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on

And you'll never walk alone


White riot, I want to riot
White riot, a riot of our own
White riot, I want to riot
White riot, a riot of our own

All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it
While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it

And everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
And nobody wants
To go to jail

THE Clash


Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear
Louder, louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well I got no choice
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

THE Clash


I take the poor man's path and I must refuse your test
Push me and I will resist
This behaviors not unique
I don't want to hear from those who know
They can buy but can't put on my clothes
I don't want to limp for them to walk
Never would have known of me before

I don't want to be held in your debt
I'll pay it of in blood let, I be wed

I'm already cut up an half dead
I'll end up alone like I began

Everything has chains, absolutely nothings changed ...

Long as I remember
The rain been comin' down
Clouds of mystery pourin'
Confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages
Tryin' to find the sun
And I wonder
Still, I wonder
Who'll stop the rain

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Gonna head on out to where the flowers bloom
Stop for awhile on the way to the moon
It's raining but I feel so fine
It's raining, raining bright sunshine
It's raining but I feel so fine

There's a mountain, it's so high
You cannot see the top from the naked eye
That's the mountain where we live
Mountain of love we got so much to give

So much for you
Your common complications
So much for you
Your constant desperation
For what's to come
It's all been
Written down, written down
But I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come
I said I feel so alive now
And you know
I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come.

your pop, your kitty

the melted pieces
the loving friends
all the things you wish you had

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

A woman on the radio talked about revolution
when it's already passed her by
Bob Dylan didn't have to sing about
you know it feels good to be alive

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now
there is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
watching the world wake up from history

Right here right now. Jesus Jones

So I'm wanted, dread and alive,
By the evil forces.
Said I'm wanted, dread and alive,
No place to hide.
They are trying to find me.

Now I've got to, judge two guns,
To protect myself from men.
'Cause I've never done nothin' wrong,
And I hate travelling scared

Peter Tosh


Do you know what's worth fighting for
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does he pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins.

One, twenty-one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty-one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I

Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)
Wait until the dust settles

And he can make a lover in a thousand go's

You work so hard, you really do
I don't think that anyone could ever work as hard as you
Hot desert sun, you can feel the heat

Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you dance

Jenny said, when she was just five years old
You know there's nothin' happening at all
Every time she put on the radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all
Not at all

One fine mornin', she puts on a New York station
And she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started dancin' to that fine-fine-fine-fine music
Ooohhh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll
Hey baby, rock 'n' roll

I've been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don't know what to do
I think I'm fallin' for you
I've been waiting all my life
And now I found ya
I don't know what to do
I think I'm fallin' for you
I'm fallin' for you

As I'm standing here
And you hold my hand
Pull me towards you
And we start to dance
All around us
I see nobody
Here in silence
It's just you and me
