Lyrics: Fred Neil

The Dolphins

This old world may never change
The way it’s been
And all the ways of war
Can’t change it back again

I’ve been searchin’
For the dolphins in the sea
And sometimes I wonder
Do you ever think of me

I’m not the one to tell this world
How to get along
I only know the peace will come
When all hate is gone

I’ve been searchin’…

You know sometimes I think about
Saturday’s child
And all about the time
When we were running wild

I’ve been searchin’…

This old world may never change
This world may never change
This world may never change

I’ve Got a Secret (Didn’t We Shake Sugaree)

I’ve got a secret, I shouldn’t tell,
I’m gonna go to heaven in a split-pea shell.
Lordie me, didn’t we shake sugaree.
Everything I have, down in pawn.

You know I pawned my watch, I pawned my chain,
I’d of sold myself, but I felt ashamed.
Lordie me, didn’t we shake sugaree.
Everything I have, down in pawn.

I’ve got a song to sing, not very long,
I’m gonna sing it right if it takes me all night long
Lordie me, didn’t we shake sugaree.
Everything I have, down in pawn.

That’s The Bag I’m In

I burned my fingers on the coffee pot
Toast was cold and the orange juice was hot.
I should start over but you know I’d rather not.
Same thing gonna happen again
Cause that’s the bag I’m in.

Last night as I was walking down the street,
Whistling the blues to the tapping of my feet,
Some jive crank called the cops on the beat.
It’ll happen every single time.

Every morning when I get up,
I miss my connection and I’m late for work again
You know they’ll probably drop the atom bomb the day my ship comes in.
I dasn’t bet a nickle cause I’d get paid off in yen.
Sometimes you just can’t win cause that’s the bag I’m in.
Jukebox playing the same old melody,
Keep on bringing back those blue memories.
This evil feeling’s gonna be the death of me
I think I’m going out of my mind.

Every morning when I wake up,
I burn my fingers on the pot,
Toast is cold and the orange juice is hot,
I should start over but you know I’d rather not
Same thing gonna happen again,
Cause that’s the bag I’m in.

Ba-De-Da

I get so tired
Hangin’ around this town
All this old city life
Should bring us fellow down

Badada dada
Dadada dada
Dadada dada
Ba-de-da

I get so tired
Trying to sleep at night
All this old city life
They keep on burning bright

Badada dada…

I get so tired
Hangin’ around this town
All this old city life
Should bring us fellow down

Badada dada…

Faretheewell (Fred’s Tune)

Well if I’d have wings
Like Noah’s dove
Will I fly this river
To the one I love

Faretheewell
Oh my honey
Faretheewell
Faretheewell

Woke up this morning
It was drizzlin’ rain
All around my heart
Was an aching pain

Faretheewell…

Well if I’d have wings
Like Noah’s dove
You know I fly up this river
To the one I love

Faretheewell…

Everybody’s Talkin’

Everybody’s talkin’ at me
I don’t hear a word they’re sayin’
Only the echoes of my mind

People stop and stare
I can’t see the faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I’m goin’ where the sun keep shinin’
Through the pouring rain
Goin’ where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin’ off on the northest wind
Sailing on a summer breeze
Skippin’ over the ocean like a stone

Everybody’s talkin’ at me
Can’t hear a word they’re saying
Only the echoes of my mind

I won’t let you leave my love behind

Everything Happens

It happens every time
There’s really nothing I can do
It happens every time
I guess I’m just a fool for you
Everything that I could beg
borrow or steal I gave to you
Well I guess that the fault was mine
Really nothing I can do

It happens every time
Somebody somewhere mentions your name
It happens every time
I’m just about to go insane
Everything that I could beg
borrow or steal I gave to you
Well I know that the fault was mine
What else could I do?

It happens every time
I guess there’s nothing left to say
It happens every time
I guess it’s just a game we play

Sweet Cocaine

I say cocaine
Cocaine
Runnin’ round your heart
Runnin’ round your brain
Yeah bittersweet

I say come on mama
Come on quick
Cocaine make him poor boy
So sick

Oh sweet mama
When I thought you understood
You got no connections
It’s just no good for me
Hey sweet cocaine

I say cocaine
Cocaine
Runnin’ round your heart
Runnin’ round your brain
Yeah bittersweet

Green Rocky Road

Keep on talkin’ ’bout
Green rocky road
Promenade in green
Who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love

Mary runnin’ to the one
Don’t you stumble don’t you fall
Don´t you hollow don’t you shallow
When you hear me singin’ come runnin’ out

Green rocky road
Promenade in green
Who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love

When I go to Baltimore
I got no cap on my floor
I said I got no cap on my floor
When I go to Baltimore

Sing Green rocky road
Promenade in green
Tell me who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love

See the bluebird in the sky
He don´t walk but he just fly
If you ever touch the ground
Well I know he’ll die
You see the bluebird fly me in the sky

Green rocky road
Promenade in green
Tell me who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love

Who do you love
