Where have all my friends gone
They've all disappeared
Turned around maybe one day
You were all that was there

Stood by unbelieving
Stood by on my own
Always thought I was someone
Turned out I was wrong

But you brought me through
And you made me feel so

Blue, why don't you stay behind, so
Blue, why don't you stop and look at what's goin' down

Live by an old woman
She'd never sell me a lie
It's hard to sing with someone
Who won't sing with you
Give all of my mercy
Give all of my heart
Never thought I'd miss you
That I'd miss you so much

But you brought me through
And you made me feel


Blue, why don't you stay behind
Blue, why don't you stop and look at what's goin' down

Stand by, stand by, waiting round
(All my life I'm waiting for, someone I could hold the door)
Now that I'm blue, that I'm blue
(But nothing seems to change, you'll come back I know)
From now on, so

Blue, why don't you stay behind
Blue, why don't you, stay behind
So blue, yeah, yeah, yeah
So blue, why don't you stop and look at what's goin' down


. . .



I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
And I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby

You said a couple things to me
You said a couple things that showed your place
But how may ways, how many ways can I say it

So we had a little baby boy
But we knew it wouldn't last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
But what I had in mind was strong

I recall a side of you
I recall a different side of you
But I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby
I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby

So we had a little baby boy
But we knew it wouldn't last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
But what I had in mind was strong

I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
And I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby
I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby
I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby
I'd run away, I'd run away with you baby

Sounds like a field being painted
In the delta sun
Songs from the book of life
For everyone
Miss William's guitar
Miss William's guitar
I remember watching her play
And the whole damn crowd
Seemed so far away
Oh so far away

One night in a bar in Louisville
We had some fun
Walked through a graveyard park
Left flowers alone
Miss William's guitar

Miss William's guitar
I remember watching her play
And the whole damn crowd
Seemed so far away
Oh so far away

Miss William's guitar
Miss William's guitar
I remember watching her play
And the whole damn crowd
Seemed so far away

I remember watching her play
And the whole damn crowd
Seemed so far away
Oh so far away

Well I know your name
Takes you back from where you came
Your words, they shone
Sometimes it's real to be alone
So real to be alone

I survive it's true
But when I get close to June
Alright, OK, it's just two hearts tha make us pay
Two hearts that make us pay

It's no better when you try
Well have you stopped to watch Sly fly
Well have you stopped to watch Sly fly

I-yi-yi-I'm lonely
I-yi-yi-I'm lonely
I-yi-yi-I'm lonely

Well the love you need
I don't expect you to let me see
You held your grace
It's just two hearts that make us pay
Two hearts that make us pay

You appear so strong
But only faith could lead us home
Alright, OK, it's just two hearts that make us pay
Two hearts that make us pay
Two hearts that make us pay


. . .



Keep my real light shining
Keep my real light shining

Your were there to walk for miles
Then you went away
Look at all the ways we've been
And how we've been today

Shakin' like a friend of mine
Roll just like a stone
Listen to your eyes in mine
Always let me know

Keep my real light shining
Keep my real light shining, shining, shining down
Shining, shining, shining down

People fight, criticize, follow in the haze
Look behind their peace of mind
Some things never change

Keep my real light shining
Keep my real light shining
Keep my real light shining, shining, shining down
Shining, shining, shining down

Left running you said you were flying
Left running you said you were cold
Any statue you can name
Like the ones that I fell for

I've been looking over my shoulder
Would you love me when you're older
Would you love me when you're older
Still I know you're true

The first game is lost and you will
Another game is hide in your fear
Oh please tell me whow my heart
How can my heart belong to you

I've been looking over my shoulder
Would you love me when you're older
Would you love me when you're older

Every time that you look my way
I feel so homeless
Your dreams own me

These landslides and buildings too high
That blocks the sun everyone
Oh the law lives everywhere
And it lives without a care

I've been looking over my shoulder
Would you love me when you're older
Would you love me when you're older
Still I know you're true

I've been looking over my shoulder
Would you love me when you're older
Would you love me when you're older
Still I know you're true


. . .



I'm in love with the girl I'm talking about
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
I'm in love but I sure picked a bad time

To be in love
To be in love

Well, let her be somebody else's queen
I don't want to hear about it
There's too many others who know what I mean
And that's why I've got to live without

Because I'm in love with a girl I'm talking about
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
I'm in love but feels like I'm living it out
I'm in love but I must've picked
A bad time to be in love
Bad time to be in love
Bad time to be in love

All the stories come back to me
From my friends and the people I don't want to see
Well all the stories they just couldn't be true
At least until I hear 'em from you

He never left a trace
They only found a note
Take the past nine years
Back from where they came
If people call it suicide
Why'd I see him on the street today

He kept his winter coat
It's cold outside in April

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

Take the past nine years
Back from where they came
If people call that suicide
Why'd I see him on the street today

He left it all the same
They say this boy is yours

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

Take the past nine years
Back from where they came
If people call that suicide
Why'd I see him on the street today
If people call that suicide
Why'd I see him on the street today


. . .



The ones you left behind are stuck in line
You've never been deprived of a smile or a time
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived

There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow

Well you follow where you're led
Say you're using your head
Still making the rounds
With the fools and the clowns
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived

There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow

But you're still young with your eyes open wide
Couldn't you stick around for the ride
But your mama always said
You gotta save your money
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived

There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
But you're still young with your eyes open wide
Couldn't you stick around for the ride
Couldn't you stick around
Couldn't you stick around

Anne Jane don't cry
Your daddy be alright
Anne Jane don't cry
Your daddy be alright
He's here with you
How do I know
I walk with him

Supper will be at six-fifteen
Supper will be at six-fifteen
Come home soon
None of those people
Know you're mine

Anne Jane don't cry
Anne Jane don't cry
Say that you need someone there my sister
Say that you need someone to be yours
Say that you need someone there my sister
Say that you need someone to be yours

There's beans and jello
I made them myself
There's beans and jello
I made them myself
Please stay close
Many in this world
Walk with God

Anne Jane don't cry
Anne Jane don't cry
Say that you need someone there my sister
Say that you need someone there to be yours
Say that you need someone there my sister
Say that you need someone there to be yours
Anne Jane don't cry
Anne Jane don't cry
Your daddy be alright

Pray for me that I may keep
Faithful to you in my time
Beloved it is morn
Deeper yellow on the corn
Lovers work as children play
Beloved it is morn

One fine day I walked to town
No love like yours to be found
Idle days, idle days

Heart and soul are full of light
Heart and soul untired always
Beloved it is morn

One fine day I walked to town
No love like yours to be found
Idle days, idle days

Pray for me that I may keep
Faithful to you in my time
Beloved it is morn
Deeper red on the thorn
May God keep you in his sight
Beloved it is morn

Unknown steps before me fall
No love like yours to be found
Idle days, idle days

Heart and soul are full of light
Heart and soul untired always
Beloved it is morn


. . .



How could I walk so lonesome
How could I aim so wrong
All the time you pardoned
You held me when I was young
You caught me when I fell
You can make it rain and shine
Never could when I was alone

I was on the floor
When I ran you out my door

I , I can't stop
I can't stop those flashing reds
The strange, the stangest love
The strangest love I ever had

You said I hold the door right
You said I've gone this far
You've been watching over
The dreams that kept us from
What's real well they seem
So foolish now
How can I live without you
How can I make it through
I was on the floor
When I ran you out my door

I, I can't stop
I can't stop those flashing reds
The strange, the strangest love
The strangest love I ever had

I was on the floor
When I ran you out my door
I, I can't stop
I can't stop those flashing reds
The strange, the strangest love
The strangest love I ever had
The strangest love I ever had


. . .



It all started one day
It came out of the blue
Everybody was talking
'Bout the bad things their
Moms and dads were doing

Ten little kids'On the side of the road
Laughing, running
Jumping, playing
They don't care what their
Moms and dads are doing

It began in the summer
I broke my arm in the swamp
Never fixed us supper
So we ran her down when we grew up

Ten little kids
On the side of the road
Laughing, running
Jumping, playing
They don't care what their
Moms and dads are doing
