I Wish You Love Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

I wish you bluebirds in the spring
to give your heart a son to sing.
And then a kiss oh but more than this,
I wish you love.

And in July a lemonade to cool you in some leafy glade.
I wish you health oh and more than wealth. I wish you love.
My breaking heart and I agree that you and I will never be.
So with my best my very best I am ‘ setn’ you free
Oh honey.

I wish you shelter from the storm.
A cozy fire to keep you worm.
Oh but most of all I wish you love.
But most of all when snowflakes fall I wish you love.
But most of all when snowflakes fall I wish you love.

Willow Weep For Me Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Willow weep for me,
Willow weep for me,
Bend your branches green,
Along the stream that runs to sea.
Listen to my plea,
Listen willow and weep for me.

Gone my lover’s dream
Lovely summer dream
Gone and left me here
To weep my tears into the stream.
Sad as I can be,
Hear me willow and weep for me.

Whisper to the wind,
And say that love has sinned
To leave my heart a breaking
And making a moan
Murmur to the night,
To hide her starry light,
So none will find me sighing
And crying, all alone.

Oh weeping willow tree,
Weep, in sympathy,
Bend your branches down
Along the ground and cover me,
When the shadows fall,
Bend oh willow and weep for me.

Chains Of Love Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Chains of love
Have tied my heart to you
Chains of love
Have made me feel so blue
Now that I'm your prisoner
Tell me what you're gonna do

What I wanna know is
Are you gonna leave me
Are you gonna make me cry
Tell me baby
Are you gonna leave me
Are you gonna make me cry
The chains are gonna haunt me
Until the day I die

Let me tell you right now
If you're gonna leave me
Please wont you set me free, pretty baby
If you're gonna leave me
Please wont you set me free
Cause I can't stand these chains around me
Unless you're here with me

In conclusion let me tell you honey
It's three o'clock in the morning
And oh, the moon is shining bright
One more time now
Three o'clock in the morning
The moon is shining bright
And O I just sit and wonder
Where can you be again tonight

Smoke Rings Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Where do they go
Those smoke rings I blow each night?
Oh, what do they do
Those circles of blue and white?
Why do they seem to picture a dream of love
And why do they fade, that phantom parade of love?

Puff, puff, puff, puff your cares away
Puff, puff, puff, night and day
Blow, blow them in the air
Silky little rings
Blow, blow them everywhere
Give your troubles wings!

Oh little smoke rings I love
Please take me above
Take me with you!

All The Way Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

when somebody loves you
its no good unless he loves you
all the way
happy to be near you
when you need someone to cheer you
all the way
taller than the tallest tree is
know thats how it s gotta feel
deeper than the deep blue see is
that how deep it goes if it is real, baby

when somebody needs you its no good
unless he needs you
all the way
through all the good and lean years
and all the in between years
come what may
how knows where the road will lead us
and only a fool would say
but if you let me love you
its for sure I am gonna love you
all the way
all the way

who knows where the road will lead us
only a fool would say

but if you let me love you
its for sure I am gonna love you
all the way

Send Me Some Lovin' Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Send me some lovin'
Oh send it I pray
How can I love you
When you're far away?

Send me your picture
Send it my dear
So I can hold it
Pretend you are here

Can you send me your kisses?
I still feel their touch
I need you so badly
I miss you so much

My days are so lonely
My nights are so blue
I'm here and I'm lonely
I'm waitin' for you

Cry Me A River Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Now you say you're lonely
You cry the whole night through
Well you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that you said
Told me love was true, too plebeian being
Told me you were through with me and

And now you say you love me
Well just prove you do
Come and cry me a river
Cry cry me a river
Cause I cried a river over you

Come on and cry me a river
Cry cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Driftin' Blues Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
Like a ship out on the sea
I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
Like a ship out on the sea
No, I ain't got nobody
In the world to care for me

If my baby would only take me back again, back again
If my baby would only take me back again, back again

I know I'm a good for nothing
And I haven't got no friends
Listen to me, honey
I gave you all my money
Tell me tell me tell me tell me
What more can I do
Didn't I give to u all my money?
Now tell me what more can I do!
I'll realize you're a good little girl
But it seems that you won't be true

Seems like I got to tell you
Baby, bye bye
Bye bye, baby
Listen to me
I know you gonna miss me
This time you gonna be
The one to cry

I love you
For sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my
Given you my heart because I mmm you

I dream of you every night
And I know I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I know I love you
And you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And tell we'll never part

Can I help it if I dream of you every night
No, no, no, no, I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I know that I love you
And you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And tell we will never part

My darling I love you

Nothing Can Change This Love Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

If I go, a million miles away
I'd write a letter, each and everyday
'Cause honey nothing, nothing can ever change this love I have for you

Mmmmmm, make me weep
And you can make me cry
See me coming
And you can pass me by
But honey, nothing, nothing can ever change this love I have for you

Wo-oh-oh, you're the apple of my eye, you're cherry pie
And oh you're, you're cake and ice cream
Oh you're sugar and spice, and everything nice
You're the girl of my, my, my, my, dreams

But if you wanted, to leave me and roam
When you got back, I'd just say welcome home
'Cause honey nothing, nothing, nothing can ever change this, love I have, for you
Wo-oh-oh-oh...

[Musical Interlude]

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know that nothing, nothing, nothing can ever
Change the love I have for you.

Little Girl Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

Little girl
You're the one girl for me
Little girl
You're as sweet as can be

Just a glance at you meant
Love from the start
And oh, what a thrill came
Into my heart

Little girl
With your cute little ways
I am yours
For the rest of my days

And this great big world
Will be divine
Little girl
When you are mine, oh mine, yeah

And this great big world
Will be divine
Little girl
When you're mine, oh mine

These Foolish Things Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Mr. Soul

A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you

A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant
A fairground's painted swings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this had to be

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

let me tell you
first daffodils and all excited cables
and candlelights on little corner tables
and still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

The park at evening and scented roses
and waiters whistling as the last bar closes
the beauty that is spring springs

How strange, how sweet, to find you still
These things are dear to me
They seem to bring you so near to me

The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations
Oh how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
These foolish things
Remind me of you

Mean Old World Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Night Beat

This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone
Without someone to call your own
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

I wish I had someone, someone who'd love me true
I wish I had someone, who loved me true
If I had someone who loved me true
Then I know I wouldn't be so blue
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

Lord, this is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
Mean old world to try and live in all by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone
Without someone to call your own
Lord, mean world to try and live in all by yourself

Sometimes I find myself dreaming I found a love
Sometimes I find myself dreaming I found a love
Sometimes I dream I really found a love
Someone who loved me true as the stars above
For this is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

I Lost Everything Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Night Beat

I lost everything
When I lost you
Now my heart is breaking in two

I found memories
What am I to do
Those memories keep on making me blue

The moon and the stars
They don't seem the same
Love has lost its glory
To me it's just a game

No, I lost everything
My dreams are all through
My life is only make-believe without you
Oh, my life is only make-believe without you

Get Yourself Another Fool Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Night Beat

Oh, at last I've awaken
To see what you've done
What can I do
But pack up and run

Now, I know the rules
Get yourself another fool

You said that you love me
I was yours to command
But your kind of love
My heart couldn't stand

Use me for a tool
Get yourself another fool

And now, now that we're through
You say you meant to be true
Oh, but deep down in your heart I know
That our love could never grow

I tried to believe you
That we'd never part
But your kind of love
Broke my poor heart

No I know the rules
Get yourself another fool

Get yourself another fool

Little Red Rooster Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Night Beat

I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the barnyard,
Upset in every way

Dogs begin to bark now,
And the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark now,
And the hounds begin to howl
Watch out stray cat,
The little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see the little red rooster
Won't you please drive him home
If you see the little red rooster
Won't you please drive him home
Been no peace in the barnyard
Since that little red rooster's been gone

I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the barnyard,
Upset in every way

Laughin' and clownin'
Just to keep from cryin'
I'm laughin' and clownin'
Just to keep from cryin'

I keep on tryin' to hide the fact
I've got a worried mind

Let me tell you, being life of the party
Seemed to be my role
Since you left me, baby, being life of the party
Seemed to be my role

I keep on tryin' to hide my feelings
Trying to hide my soul

Let me tell you what I do, I stand in the doorway
Watchin' all the girls go through
You might not believe me, baby, but I stand in the doorway
Watchin' all the girls go through

I keep on tryin' to me find someone
To take my mind off you, tickle 'em for me

I keep on laughin' and clownin'
To take my mind off you

And oh, it's a wonder I ain't dead
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living in a fool's paradise

Said my child, it'll all catch up with you
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living in a fool's paradise

Though I've learned my lesson
Like all fools I've met
Oh, I've learned things in this life

Said my son, you're ruining your life
Drinking and gambling, staying out all night
Living in a fool's paradise
Oh, yeah, living in a fool's paradise

Bill Bailey Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Sam Cooke At The Copa

it's time you went home, Bill Bailey
it's time you went home
you got a woman there that moans the whole night long
she said she'd do the cooking, Billy
said she'd pay the rent
she realizes that she done you wrong, yeah

stop thinking about that lonely evening
that she drove you out
with nothing but a fine toothcomb
oh then I know that's a shame, Bill
maybe you're the blame, Bill
so Bailey go on home

it's time you went home Bill Bailey
it's time you home
you got a woman there she's moaning and a groaning
the whole night long
said she'd do that cooking, Billy
pay the telephone bill and the rent
she realizes that she done you wrong

stop thinking about that lonely evening
that she drove you out
and remember, remember she didn't let you leave
without that fine tooth comb

And I know, I know
I know it's a shame
maybe you're to blame, Bill
and Bailey won't you go on home
Bailey won't you get on home

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money honey, I didn't care
Taking my friends out for a mighty good time
I drank that good gin, champagne and wine

Just as soon as my money got low
I couldn't find no friends
And I had no place to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again,
I'm gonna hold on to it till that eagle grins

'Cause I found out that nobody wants you
Nobody wants you when they find out
That you're down and out
In your pocket, there's not not one penny
And as for friends, you don't have any

Just let you get back up on your feet again
Here they all come telling you
Their your old long-lost friend
And this I wanna tell you and about it I have no doubt
Nobody wants you
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants when you're down and out

Frankie And Johnny Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Sam Cooke At The Copa

Frankie and Johnny was sweethearts
At least that's the way the story goes
Frankie bought everything for Johnny
From his sports car to his Ivy League clothes

Aw, he was a man alright
Oh, but he was doing her wrong
Just to show you what can happen

A friend came running to Frankie
She said you know I wouldn't tell you no lie
I saw your man ridin' in his Jaguar
With a chick named Nellie Blye

Oh, if he was your man honey
Let me tell you he was doing you wrong
Let me tell the story

Frankie ran around the corner
And peeked in a swinging place
And there she saw Johnny with a woman
He had his arms around her waist

Aw...he was a man alright
But Frankie could see that he was
Doing her wrong
And oh let me tell you

Frankie reached down in her pocketbook
And up with a long forty-four
She shot once, twice, three times
And Johnny fell on the hard wood floor

Aw...he was a man alright
But she shot him because he was doing her wrong

But the last thing he told her was
Frankie, you know I love you
Why? Honey, why did you do that?
Frankie, I was telling her about you
Frankie, you know I love you
Frankie, you know that I love you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Now Frankie, you know good and well that I love you
Frankie, I'll always love you baby
Frankie, you know I can't do without you
Frankie, you know I love you
And I know, and I know I was doing wrong
You wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
Frankie, baby, you know I love you
Frankie...

Maybe I'm old fashioned, feeling as I do
Maybe I am living in the past
But when I meet the right one
I know that I'll be true
My first love will be the last

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it began
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never, never, never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I give my heart to you

Twistin' The Night Away Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Sam Cooke At The Copa

Let me tell you 'bout a place
Somewhere up-a New York way
Where the people are so gay
Twistin' the night away
Here they have a lot of fun
Puttin' trouble on the run
Man, you find the old and young
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin'
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night away

Here's a man in evening clothes
How he got here, I don't know, but
Man, you oughta see him go
Twistin' the night away
He's dancin' with a chick in slacks
She's movin' up and back
Oh, man, there ain't nothin' like
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin'
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night

Let's twist a while
Lean up
Lean back
Lean up
Lean back
Watusi
Now fly
Now twist
They're twistin' the night away

Here's a fella in blue jeans
Dancin' with an older queen
Who's dolled up in her diamond rings and
Twistin' the night away
Man, you oughta see her go
Twistin' to the rock and roll
Here you find the young and old
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin', man
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night

One more time
Lean up
Lean back
Lean up
Lean back
Watusi
Now fly
Now twist

Amen

This little light of mine,

Blowin' In The Wind Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Sam Cooke At The Copa
(originally by Bob Dylan)

How many roads must a man walk down
Before he's called a man
Tell me, how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Tell me, how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they're forever banned?
No, the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer: blowin' in the wind

How many times must a man look above
Before he sees the sky
Tell me, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry
What I wanna know is
How many deaths will it take 'til he knows
Too many people have died
Oh, the
No, the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer: somewhere in the the wind

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed out to the sea
Tell me, how many years can people exist
Before they are allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
Pretending that he just doesn't see
Oh, the answer, my friend, blowin' in whe wind
The answer: blowin' in the wind

Blowin' in the wind, blowin' in the wind
The answer: somewhere in the wind
That answer is somewhere in the wind

Tennessee Waltz Lyrics

Artist : SAM COOKE
Album : Sam Cooke At The Copa
(originally by Roy Acuff)

I was dancing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced him to my baby and while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Only you know how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darling the night they were playing
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Devil Doll Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : At The Rock House

Devil doll...devil doll
We went steady in the fall,
We broke up in the spring
Your young lovin blinds,
And you gave me back my ring
Well I see now what my friends saw then,
That you're just not the one
To love someone true
The way I love you,
Oh devil doll

Now I'm not the first one
And I won't be the last,
You'll make my heart
Just another heart you've broken in the past
Don't play a game with another guy,
Don't make me feel so blue,
I'm a guy that's true and I love you
Oh devil doll

Now I'm not the first one
Don't let me be the last,
Don't make my heart
Just another heart you've broken in the past,
Don't play a game with another guy,
Don't make me feel so blue,
I'm a guy that's true and I love you
Oh devil doll (devil doll)

You're My Baby Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : At The Rock House

I love that hair, long an' black
Hangin' down to the middle of your back
Don't cut it off whatever you do
I need it to run my fingers through
'Cause you're my baby, ah-ah, you're my sugar
Don't mean maybe, you're my baby
Got me a dollar that I saved
Saved it up for a rainy day
Everybody's callin' for bills that's due
But they don't catch me, I'll spend it on you
'Cause you're my baby, ah-ah, you're my sugar
Don't mean maybe, you're my baby

Got me a guitar, got a six strings
And a picker to make 'em ring
Every string's gotta know what to do
'Cause I'm gonna use 'em to serenade you
'Cause you're my baby, ah-ah, you're my sugar
Don't mean maybe, you're my baby

Well I had me a gal, she said she's mine
But she run around on me all the time
Now she's gone an' I'm glad we're through
'Cause I-I'm plum-flipped over you
'Cause you're my baby, ah-ah, you're my sugar
Don't mean maybe, you're my baby

Oh, baby-baby, yeah you're my baby
Well I don't mean maybe
You drive me crazy
I love you baby, you're my babydoll

Jukebox plays loud

You wink your eye at every guy
Don't you know you're gonna cry
You say hello to every Joe
You're gonna know, I told you so
You're everybody's baby, everybody's knockin' on your door
But then one day, they're gonna say
That you're nobody's baby no more
Ah-ah, you'll cry when they say bye-bye
Ah-ah, you're gonna cry
Then dry your eyes, and quit your cryin'
And be nobody's baby but mine

I Never Knew Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : At The Rock House

I never knew how much I'd miss your touch till you said good bye
I never knew you'd hurt me too, till you made me cry
It never seemed you ever dreamed of hurting me this way
You said we're through what could I do I never knew
(never knew)
You left and you went away after saying never ever let me go oh

Now it's over and you're gone and I'm alone to cry
Oh yes it's true how I love you I never knew

You left and you went away after saying never ever let me go oh

Now it's over and you're gone and I'm alone to cry
Oh yes it's true how I love you I never knew

You left and you went away after saying never ever let me go oh

Now it's over and you're gone and I'm alone to cry
Oh yes it's true how I love you I never knew
(I never never knew)

Bye Bye Love Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue
(originally by The Everly Brothers)

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye my love goodbye
There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy I sure am blue

She was my baby 'tlll he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

I'm free from romance
I'm through with love
I'm through with counting the stars above
And here's the reason that I'm so free
My loving baby is through with me

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye my love goodbye
Bye bye my love goodbye

Cry Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue

If your sweetheart sends a letter of goodbye
It's no secret you'll feel better if you cry
When waking from a bad dream
Don't you sometimes think it's real?
But it's only false emotions that you feel

If your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song
Remember sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down and go on and cry

Blue Avenue Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue

Blue Avenue
Where I spend my lonely days without you
Blue Avenue
Why did you go and tell me we were through?

You've stolen my heart and my love
And now you say we're through
I'm walkin' down
Yeah, walkin' down on Blue Avenue

Oh, Blue Avenue
Yeah I'm feeling so bad
Blue Avenue
I lost the very best woman that I ever had

Alone so alone
But I pray that someday I'll find you
Down at the end
Down at the end of Blue Avenue

Oh, Blue Avenue
Yay yay I'm feeling so bad
Blue Avenue
I lost the very best woman that I ever had

Alone so alone
But I pray
That someday I'll find you
Down at the end
Down at the end of Blue Avenue

I Can't Stop Loving You Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue
(originally by Don Gibson)

Those happy hours that we once knew,
Though long ago, still make me blue.
They say that time heals a broken heart.
But time has stood still since we've been apart.
I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory
Of old lone-some times.
I can't stop wanting you
It's use-less to say.
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday.
Those happy hours that we once knew,
Though long ago, still make me blue.
They say that time heals a broken heart.
But time has stood still since we've been apart.
I can't stop loving you,
There's no use to try.
Pretend ther's some one new;
I can't live a lie.
I can't stop wanting you
The way that I do.
Ther's only been one love for me,
That one love is you.

Album : Lonely And Blue

Bum bum bum da de da oh oh oh yeah yeah
Bum bum bum da de da ah come back to me my love
Come back to me

16 years ago today early one Sunday morn
Just before the break of day a cute little girl was born
From that very moment on her life's been gay and free
Laughing eyes and loving ways as sweet as she could be

Bum bum bum da de da oh oh oh yeah yeah
Bum bum bum da de da ah come back to me my love
Come back to me

We had a quarrel I can't forget the night I made her cry
Her tender heart just fell apart as she said good-bye
Now today is her birthday my baby's sweet 16
But someone else is in my place to hold my every dream
Bum bum bum da de da oh oh oh yeah yeah
Bum bum bum da de da ah come back to me my love
Come back to me

Raindrops Lyrics

Album : Lonely And Blue

Raindrops, raindrops
I look out my window and what do I see
Raindrops, raindrops
They mark the pathway to my destiny
Raindrops, raindrops
Yes rain like the tears that fell from my heart
The day you said we'd have to part
And now what's left for me to do
But watch those raindrops and cry over you

You've stolen my love and my heart away
Raindrops, raindrops
And I'll feel the same for the rest of my days
Raindrops, raindrops
Well I've tried yes I've tried I want you to know
I did what you asked I loved you so
But I knew in my heart it wouldn't be long
Till I'd look up and you'd be gone

I'd Be A Legend In My Time Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue
(originally by Don Gibson)

If heartaches brought fame
In loves crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time

If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
I'd be a legend in my time

But they don't give awards
And there's no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
Over love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time

Twenty Two Days Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue

Oh it's been 22 lonely blue days without a word from you
And 44 million more tears I've cried since you walked through that door
The sun never reaches my doorstep each empty day seems to be the same
You've broken your vow but I still love you now, oh this love of mine is a one way losing game

And it's been 22 lonely blue days without a word from you
And 44 million more tears I've cried since you walked through that door
The dreams that we share are gone forever but I still have a little hope in my heart
Is this the way it ends? Are we to be both friends? Oh I can't go on if we're to be apart

And it's been 22 lonely blue days without a word from you
And 44 million more tears I've cried since you walked through that door

Yeah 22 days since you walked through that door
Ah 22 days since you walked through that door
Yeah 22 days since you walked through that door
Mmmm 22 days since you walked through that door

I'll Say It's My Fault Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Lonely And Blue

Too many quarrels so now we break up.
No there's no chance to ever make-up,
But when they ask me.

I'll say it's my fault.
I'll take all the blame.
I'll say I was wild,
When I should have been tame.

I'll say it's my fault.
I'll give a good show.
I'll say I'm a needle
That just wouldn't sew.

Ev'ry one will be wondering,
All our friends will inquire.
Which one did the blundering,
Who put out the fire?

So, I'll say it's my fault.
I'll say there's no doubt,
Then cry as I wonder,
Why it didn't work out.

Crying Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

I was all right for awhile
I could smile for awhile
But I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say, "Hello"

Oh, you wished me well
You, you couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you
Crying over you

When you said, "So long"
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying
Crying, crying

It's hard to understand
But the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more
Than I did before

But, darling, what can I do?
For you don't love me
And I'll always be crying over you
Crying over you

Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying
Crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying
Over you

The Great Pretender Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying
(originally by The Platters)

Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Pretending that I'm doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I've played the game but to my real shame
You've left me to grieve all alone

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Love Hurts Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying
(originally by The Everly Brothers)

Love hurts, love scars
Love wounds and mars
Any heart not tough
Nor strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Love hurts

I'm young, I know
But even so
I know a thing or two
I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a stove, burns you when it's hot
Love hurts
Love hurts

Some fools rave of happiness
Blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
But they're not foolin' me

I know it isn't true, know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Love hurts
Love hurts...

She Wears My Ring Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

She wears my ring to show the world that she belongs to me
She wears my ring to show the world she's mine eternally
With loving care I placed it on her finger
To show my love for all the world to see
This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that's as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that's as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

Wedding Day Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

Wonder how long it will take.
For this heart of mine to break
There's I watch you walk away.
This was to be our wedding day.
I won't hear the choir sing.
While I hold your golden ring.
Might as well throw it away.
With my dreams of wedding day.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Oh to hold you in my arms again.
I watched my whole world fade away.
On this our wedding day.
Who was right and who was wrong,
Makes no difference when you're all alone.
As I watch you walk away.
Goodbye darling, goodbye wedding day.

Summer Song Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

Our summersong lingers on in my memory
Since you've been gone from me
Summer's come again, and again I'm alone
Wish you were near when I hear our summersong

Our summersong lives on and on and on
Inside of me, and it will, yes
Until you return to me

Oh, when the leaves fall away from the trees
I'll still be blue all winter long
And I'll sing our summersong and dream of you
I'll sing our summersong and dream of you

Loneliness Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

Loneliness is the worst thing in the world
To be alone all the day long
No ring on the phone, yeah this is wrong
Low down loneliness

This loneliness, I must confess
Yes it's a mess of this loneliness
Low down loneliness, loneliness all around
Loneliness, you have found me loneliness

Oh loneliness, all of the time
Such loneliness, you're so unkind
Low down loneliness
Loneliness everywhere
Loneliness, I've got more that my share

Oh loneliness, my destiny
Yeah loneliness, was I born to be
In low down Loneliness? Loneliness

Don't you tell me "no sir"

Nite Life Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

When shadows fall, the day is done
The mountain tops hide the setting sun
The magic of the night is here, for all young lovers far and near

Nite life, ooh la la la, stars coming out to play
Nite life, rah rah rah rah
See how they light the milky way
At the end of day, mmm nite life

Nite life, aye aye aye aye look at the moon above
Nite life, ma ma ma ma, it's time to fall in love
Yeah, so come on, mmm nite life

Nite life, no need to be blue
The moon and the stars are belong to you
Nite life is so much fun when you're in love, and love is young

Nite life tra la la la, laughing and painting the town
Nite life, ha ha ha ha, it's just a merry go round
When the sun goes down, mmm nite life

Running Scared Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : Crying

Just runnin' scared each place we go
So afraid that he might show
Yeah, runnin' scared, what would I do
If he came back and wanted you

Just runnin' scared, feelin' low
Runnin' scared, you love him so
Just runnin' scared, afraid to lose
If he came back which one would you choose

Then all at once he was standing there
So sure of himself, his head in the air
My heart was breaking, which one would it be
You turned around and walked away with me.

In Dreams Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep. Everything is all right."

I close my eyes, Then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream My dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you. In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine. All of the time we're together
In dreams, In dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

It's too bad that all these things, Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams In beautiful dreams.

Lonely Wine Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

The night is bright and gay but I'm so blue
My heart must have it's way and dream of you
That's why I sigh and sip my lonely wine

Your picture on the wall your smiling face
Brings back the memory of your embrace
I start to cry into my lonely wine

Teardrops fall but all they bring is heartache
It's better if I never think at all
Still they soothe the pain my lonely thoughts make
I never quite succeed in hiding all, so let them fall

Where ever you may be, I'll still be true
And when the clouds roll by I'll come to you
But until then I'll drink my lonely wine

Where ever you may be, I'll still be true
And when the clouds roll by I'll come to you
But until then I'll drink my lonely wine

Shahdaroba Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

Where the Nile flows
And the moon glows
On the silent sand
Of an ancient land

When a dream dies
And a heart cries
Shahdaroba
Is the word they whisper alone

Shahdaroba, Shahdaroba
Means the future is much better than the past
Shahdaroba, Shahdaroba
In the future you will find a love that lasts

So when tears flow
And you don't know
What on earth to do
And your world is blue

When your dream dies
And your heart cries
Shahdaroba
Fate knows what's best for you

Shahdaroba, Shahdaroba
Face the future and forget about the past
Shahdaroba, Shahdaroba
In the future you will find a love that lasts

Shahdaroba

No One Will Ever Know Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

No one will ever know my heart is breaking although a million teardrops start to flow
I'll cry myself to sleep and wake up smiling I'll miss you but no one will ever know
I'll tell them we grew tired of each other and realized our dreams could never be
I'll even make believe I never loved you then no one will ever know the truth but me

No one will ever know how much I'm pining
Each time the past comes back to haunt me so
No one will ever see the tears I'm hiding
Yes you've hurt me but no one will ever know
I'll tell them I've found true love with another
And that I was glad the day you set me free
I'll even make believe I never loved you then no one will ever know the truth but me

Sunset Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

I see her when the sun is high
The clouds write her name across the sky
But, the boss man is giving me the eye
I'd better go to work, but I'll see her by and by

At sunset I'm gonna see my sweetheart
Gonna hold her so tight
At sunset I'm gonna see my baby
My baby tonight

I see the shadows on the run
I see the setting of the sun
At last my working day is done
The setting of the sun has finally come

It's sunset I'm gonna see my sweetheart
Gonna hold her so tight
It's sunset I'm gonna see my baby
My baby tonight

I see her in the twighlight standing there
The wind softly stirring in her hair
The sweetest fruit the earth can bear
So young so warm and so rare

It's sunset, at last I'm with my sweetheart
I'm holding her tight
It's sunset and now I'm with my baby
And she is mine tonight

House Without Windows Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

I'm gonna move into
A house without windows
So I won't see you walking by, walking by
With your new love

There in the darkness of
My house without windows
I will never see the stars that shine
Shine on you, and your new love

I'd rather wonder through this endless night
Than to face the light of another lonely day
Knowing that you won't be there
There to share, these two arms ever again

I'll take all my broken dreams
And I'll take my broken heart
And from now on you will find me there
Crying there, trying to forget
In my house without windows
In my house without windows
And without love.

Dream Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

Dream, when you're feeling blue
Dream, that's the thing to do
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air
You'll find your share of memories there

So dream, when the day is through
Dream, and they might come true
Things never are as bad as they seem
So dream, dream dream

Dream, when the day is through
Dream, and they might come true
Things never are as bad as they seem
So dream, dream dream

Blue Bayou Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

I feel so bad I've got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou

Saving nickels, saving dimes, working 'till the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou
I'm going back some day come what may to Blue Bayou
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on Blue Bayou

All those fishing boats with their sails afloat If I could only see
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be

Go to see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day, gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Oh, that girl of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside
I'll never be blue, my dreams come true on Blue Bayou

Gigolette Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

Oh, they call you Gigolette, they say that you're the Devil's pet.
They say beware for you destroy, the heart and soul of everyboy.

They say that your lips are soft and warm.and they say that your touch has a magic charm
But that you're a butterfly flying from guy to guy.

Yes you're known as Gigolette, oh love and them and leave them Gigolette,
They say you're laugh when lovers cry they say it's a kiss and then goodbye.

They say that your heart is made of stone and they say stay away leave you alone.

Ah, that you're a fly by night many arms to hold you tight.

But it's too late for me.too late now to forget,I'm under the spell of Gigolette.
My chance to run away is past, I'm in your arms at last.

So come on and hold me.oh hold me close to you.
Oh kiss me,don't break my heart in two.

Tomorrow you're may be ot of sight, but tonight, tonight, tonight love me Gigolette.

All I Have To Do Is Dream Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams
(originally by The Everly Brothers)

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream
Dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I want you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you all I have to do
Is dream

I can make you mine
Taste your lip of wine
Any time night or day
Only trouble is gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

Dream, dream

Beautiful Dreamer Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
starlight and dewdrops are awaiting thee.
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,
Led by the moonlight have all passed away.

Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo the with soft melody.
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng,

Beautiful dreamer awake unto me.
Beautiful dreamer awake unto me!

Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
Mermaids are chaunting the wild lorelei,
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea,
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,

Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

My Prayer Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

When the twilight is gone and no songbirds are singing
When the twilight is gone you come into my heart
And here in my heart you will stay while I pray

My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of the day in a dream that's divine
My prayer is a rapture in blue
With the world far away and your lips close to mine

Tonight while our hearts are aglow
Oh tell me the words that I'm longing to know

My prayer and the answer you give
May they still be the same for as long as we live
That you'll always be there at the end of my prayer

Falling Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

I'm falling, I'm falling
Falling in love with you

Baby, Come closer closer to me, And listen listen so carefully
Remember all the nights that I told you that I loved you
It wasn't true, I used you, And you were just someone new

To thrill this lonely heart of mine
I was lying all the time
Pretending to be falling in love with you
But it's different now, I've kissed you now
So forgive me forgive me somehow

Hold me tight for tonight, Then tell me truth
If you still love me, Say that you love me
Don't leave me now

Now that I'm falling for you
I'm falling, I'm falling
Falling in love, Falling in love with you

Distant Drums Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

I hear the sound of distant drums
Far away, Far away
And if they call for me to come
Then I must go and you must stay

So Mary marry me, let's not wait
Let's share all the time we can
Before it's too late
And love me now
For now is all the time there may be
And if you love me Mary, Mary marry me

I hear the sound of bugles blow
Far away, far away
And if they call then I must go
Who knows where or who can say?

So Mary marry me, let's not wait
For those distant drums
Might change our wedding day
And love me now
For now is all the time there may be
And if you love me Mary, Mary marry me
Yes if you love me Mary, Mary marry me

Pretty Paper Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : In Dreams

(The pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue)

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded street, busy feet, hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by

Should you stop? Better not, much too busy
You're in a hurry, my how time does fly
In the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Ride Away Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : There Is Only One Roy Orbison

Two wheels a turnin'
One girl a yearnin'
Big motor burnin' the road

I'll ride the highway
I'm going my way
I'll leave a story untold

Pretty girls behind me but pretty girls are everywhere
Big motor wind up, ride away from here

Ride away

She won't approve of things I do or what I am
And I don't really give a ... I understand
But she'll never see that I'll never be
Any one but me

She thinks she needs me, she cries for me
But I know she's lying, crying for others to see
What can I say, I'll just ride away

Big motor run run (background) ride ride away
Ride on away from big motor run run
Heart-ache and misery

I'm bound to wander
Way over yonder
Someone be waitin' just for me

True love to cling to, I need a dream to share
Someone to know me, Someone to show me they care

Ride away, ride away
From tears and sorrow
Like there's no tomorrow

Tonight I'll ride away

You Fool You Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY

You fool you, that's what my friends all say
You fool you, don't throw your love away
You fool you, remember yesterday
Your baby walked away, away, from you.

So there you go, come running back again
Stars in your eyes, be leading lights
Your hungry heart still longs for love
You think she'll win, and so you pretend

You fool you, that's what my friends all say
You fool you, don't throw your love away
You fool you, remember yesterday
Your baby walked away, away, from you.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh,
Ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh,
You fool you.

Two Of A Kind Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : There Is Only One Roy Orbison

They say we're searching for love we'll never find
They say we're foolish kids we're two of a kind.

We know we've found our love when your lips meet mine
That's when we know they're right we're two of a kind.

No matter what they say when it's all said and done
When we are old enough we two will be one.

And when they pass me by with your hand in mine
Then they'll just smile and say they're two of a kind.

No matter what they say when it's all said and done
When we are old enough we two will be one.

And when they pass me by with your hand in mine
Then they'll just smile and say they're two of a kind.

If You Can't Say Something Nice Lyrics

Artist : ORBISON, ROY
Album : There Is Only One Roy Orbison

Don't talk about her, she does the best she can
Don't talk about her, Don't talk about her
She's just lost her man
She's lonely, just try and understand.

And if you can't say something nice
Don't say anything at all
Don't you know that she's had a bad, bad fall
And if you can't say something nice
Don't say anything at all.

Don't talk about her, because she feels that way

Don't talk about her, don't talk about her
She don't feel so good today
She's crying, because her baby walked away.

And if you can't say something nice
Don't say anything at all
Don't you know that she's had a bad, bad fall
And if you can't say something nice
Don't say anything at all.
