Lyrics: Sessions

Felicity

Even though I know the rain may fall
Somewhere the sun will shine

And the melody returns again
Right in the tabs of time

If you don’t believe me
Nothing I can do to change your mind
You’ve got to ride that road
Your own way and your own guitar

Even though I know the tabs keep changin’
They must be turn once more

And the melodies
Shadows of memories
Have all been played before

Please Send Me Somebody To Love

Show the world how to get along
Peace will enter when all hate is gone
And if it’s not asking too much
Please send me somebody to love

I lie awake nights, count the world and its troubles
And my answer’s always the same
‘Less man puts an end to this damnable sin
He’s gonna set this world aflame

Show the world how to get along
Peace will enter when all hate is gone
And if it’s not asking too much
Please send me somebody to love

Merry Go Round

Where’s the Jim Crow section
On this merry go round
I just can’t find the back
Where’s the Jim Crow section
On this merry go round
For a boy who’s black

Like a blackbird
Don’t you love
Tell me

Tell me where
Did you spin last night

In the pines
Where the sun never shines
And she shiver the whole night long

My daddy was good engineer
Killed a mile
And a half
From this town

His body was found
Underneath the driving wheel
His head
Ain’t never been found

Blackbird blackbird
Don’t you love me
Tell me where did you spin last night

Where’s the Jim Crow section
On this merry go round
I just can’t find the back
Where’s the Jim Crow section
Of your merry go round
For a boy who’s black

Look Over Yonder

Look over yonder
Hot sun turnin’ over
Look over yonder
Hot sun turnin’ over
And it won’t go down
No, don’t go down

Can’t you hear
Whippoorwills wailin’
Can’t you hear
Whippoorwills wailin’
Sure sign of rain
Sure sign of rain

Mama mama
Now ain’t you sorry
I’m your son
I’m your son
Ain’t you sorry that you born me
When you see what I’ve become

Did you ever wonder?
Anybody ever wonder
Did you ever wonder?
Anybody ever wonder
Well about poor me?
If I’ll ever be free
If I’ll ever be free

Go down Hannah
Don’t you rise no more
Go down Hannah
Don’t you rise no more
If you rise in the morning
Rise in the morning
In the judgement showing
In the judgement showing
