Canadian Sunset Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

Once I was alone
So so lonely and then
You came out of nowhere
Like the sun up from the hills
Cold, cold was the wind
Warm, so warm, warm were your lips
Out there on that ski trail
Where your kiss filled me with thrills

A weekend in Canada
A change of scene
Was the most I bargained for
And then I discovered you
And in your eyes
I found a love I couldn´t ignore
Down, down came the sun
Fast fast fast beat my heart
I knew, when the sunset
From that day we´d never part

A weekend in Canada
A change of scene
Was the most I bargained for
And then I discovered you
And in your eyes
I found a love that I couldn´t ignore

Down, down came the sun
Fast fast so fast fast beat my heart
I knew, when the suns et
From that day we´d never part
we´d never part, we´d never part

Hush little baby

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
You spread your wings and take to the sky
But until that morning there is nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mommy standing by
They are standing by
I know
Don't cry

Summertime

Your daddy is so
So rich and your mama good
She had to be good looking
So hush little baby

Don't you cry
No

Don't cry
No need to cry
Don't cry
Don't cry
Summertime

Around The World Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

Around the world I searched for you
I traveled on but hope was gone
to keep a rendez-vous

I knew sometime, some place, some how
you'd look at me, and I would see the smile
you're smiling now

it might have been in ...
or in New York, or in Paris, or even London town
no longer will I go all around the world
for I've found my world in you

(with background vocals)
Around the world I searched for you
I traveled on but hope was gone
to keep a rendez-vous

I knew somewhere, some time, some how
you'd look at me, and I would see the smile
you're smiling now

it might have been in ...
or in New York, or in Paris, or even London town
no longer will I go all around the world
for I've found my world in you
I've found my world, found my world in you

Ain't Misbehavin' Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

No one to walk with, all by myself,
No one to talk with, but I'm happy on the shelf.
Ain't Misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain the one I love
I'm thru with flirtin', it's just you I'm thinkin' of,
Ain't Mis-be-hav-in', I'm savin' my love for you

I'm Like Jack Horner in the corner,
I don't go nowhere, what do I care,
Your kisses are worth waitin' for, believe me

I don't stay out late, no place to go
I'm home a-bout eight, just me and my radio
Ain't Mis-be-hav-in', savin' all of my love for you

No one to walk with, all by myself,
No one to talk with, but I'm happy on the shelf.
Ain't Misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain the one I love
I'm thru with flirtin', it's just you I'm thinkin' of,
Ain't Mis-be-hav-in', I'm savin' my love for you

I'm like Jack Horner in the corner,
I don't go nowhere, what do I care,
Your kisses are worth waitin' for, believe me

I don't stay out late, that's not for me
I'm home about eight, just quit looking at my tv
Ain't Mis-be-hav-in', savin' all of my love for you

The bells of St. Mary's
I hear they are calling
the young loves, the true loves
who come from the sea

And so my beloved

for you and me

the bells of st mary's
I hear they are calling
the young loves, the true loves
who come from the sea

And so my beloved
when red leeves are falling
the love bells shell
ring out, ring out
for you and me

So Long Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

so long, so long
jee, I hate to see you go
you mean the world to me you know
you've been mine so long

so long, so long
hope we meet again some day
if we do I hope you'll say
darling, my mind was wrong

all alone with my memories of you
I hope you are lonely too
you're my own
even though we're oh so far apart
I shall keep you here in my heart

so long, though you leave me and I cry?
this will never be goodbye
you've been mine so long

all alone with my memories of you
I hope you are lonely too
you're my own
even though we're oh so far apart
I shall keep you here in my heart

so long, though you leave me in a pry?
this will never be goodbye
you've been mine so long

Danny Boy Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
It's you it's you must go, I must bide

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
it's I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
It's you it's you must go, I must bide

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
it's I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so

That Lucky Old Sun Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Sam Cooke

Up in the morning, out on the job
Work like the devil for my pay
While that lucky old sun has nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

I have to fuss with my woman
toil for my kids
Sweat 'till I'm wrinkled and raid
While that lucky old sun has nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

The Lord above don't you know I'm pining
tears all in my eyes
Send down that cloud with the silver lining
lift me to paradise
show me that river, take me across
Wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun
give me nothing to do
Than roll around heaven all day

The Lord above don't you know I'm plying
tears all in my eyes
Send down that cloud with the silver lining
lift me to paradise
show me that river, take me across
Wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun
give me nothing to do
Than roll around heaven all day

Oh, Look At Me Now Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

I never cared for simple things like love
June and old place
may face was terribly blank
Two things concerning l'amour
I'm really, really not for sure

For I'm not the guy who kid about love
For I'm not the guy who kid about fortunes and such
Never cared much, but, Oh look at me now
I never knew the technique of kissing
I never knew the thrill I could get from your touch
Never cared much, but, Oh look at me now

I'm a new man, better than Cassanova at his best
With a new heart a brand new start
I'm so proud I'm busting my best
So I'm a guy who turned out a lover
So I'm guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings
One of those things
Never cared much, but, Oh look at me now

I'm a new man, better than Cassanova at his best
With a new heart a brand new start
I'm so proud I'm busting my best
So I'm a guy who turned out a lover
So I'm guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings
One of those things
Never cared much, but, Oh look at me now

Someday Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

I know that someday you want me to want you
When I'm in love with somebody new
You expect me to be true
and to keep on loving you
Although I am blue,
you think I can't forget you

Although you don't want to meet now
I'll get along somehow
And I won't want you

Along The Navaho Trail Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

Every day a lullabout evening
When the sunlights beginning to fail
I ride through the slumbering shadows
Along the Navajo Trail

When it's night and crickets are calling
And coyotes are making a wail
I dream by a smouldering fire
Along the Navajo Trail

[part 3]
When the wind is strumming a sage-brushed guitar
And over yonder hill the moon is climbing
It always finds me whistling on a star
What do you know it's morning already
There's the dawning, so silver and pale
It's time to climb in my saddle
I want to ride the Navajo Trail

I love the lie and listen to all the music
[repeat part 3]
I want to ride the Navajo Trail

with fellows like Maverick and Cheyenne,
the Indians and their bow and arrows
the boys and guns and love to travel
along the Navajo Trail

Running Wild Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

No girl will ever make a fool of me
No girl, I mean just what I say
I'm not the simpleton I used to be
Wonder how I got that way

I'm running wild, I've lost control
Running wild, mighty bold
Feeling gay, reckless too
Every mile all the time, never blue
Always going don't go there
Always showing I don't care
Don't love nobody, it's not worthwhile
I'm all alone, running wild
[repeat verse]

Accentuate The Positive Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

You've got to accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
But don't mess with mister inbetween

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
have faith, a pandemonium
Libel to walk up on the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the Whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
just when everything looked so dark

They said we better
accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
latch on to the affirmative
But don't mess with mister inbetween

[One more Time]

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
just when everything looked so dark
don't mess, don't mess, don't mess
with mister inbetween

[this verse twice]

Mary, Mary Lou Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

Mary, Mary Lou
Why must you do
The things that you always do

Honey, I've been here a-crying
Sipping and a-sighing
To think it's all because of you

I know the other night you told me
You were gonna marry
Someone who's in love with you, yeah
And the time I used to
be your golden rooster
But now I can see that we are through

Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you
You're always doing me so wrong

Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you
And know you want to say so long

Mary, Mary Lou
Why must you do
Those things that you always do

I can hear a-crying
Sipping and a-sighing
To think it's all because of you

You were gonna marry
Someone who's in love with you, yeah
And the time I used to
be your golden rooster
But now I can see that we are through

Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you
You're always doing me so wrong

Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you
And knew you want to say so long

Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you
Mary, Mary, Mary Lou
What in the world is the matter with you

When I Fall In Love Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

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

I Cover The Waterfront Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching to see
Will the one I love, soon come back to me

I cover the waterfront
I search of my love
And I’m guided by the starlit sky above

Here am I, patiently waiting
Hoping and longing O, how I yearn
Where are you, are you forgetting
Do you remember, will you return

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching to see
Will the one I love, soon come back to me

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching to see
Will the one I love, soon come back to me

I cover the waterfront
I search of my love
And I’m guided by the starlit sky above

Here am I, patiently waiting
Hoping and longing O, how I yearn
Where are you, are you forgetting
Do you remember, will you return

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching to see
Will the one I love, soon come back to me

Here am I, patiently waiting
Hoping and longing O, how I yearn
Where are you, are you forgetting
Do you remember, will you return

I cover the waterfront

My Foolish Heart Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

The night is like a lovely tune
beware my foolish heart
How wise the ever constant moon
take care my foolish heart
There's a line between love and fascination
that's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
when you're lost in the magic of a kiss
her lips are much too close to mine
beware my foolish heart
But should her eager lips meet mine
then let the fire start
For this time it isn't fascination
Nor a dream that will fade and fall apart
It's love, this time it's love
my foolish heart

Today I Sing The Blues Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

Without a warning
the blues walked in this morning
And circled round my lonely room
I didn't know why I had
that sad and lonely feeling
'till my baby called and said it's through
Yesterday I sang a love song
but today I sing the blues

I know the explanation
but that's no constellation
No matter how your love
you can lose
and since I lost
I rather walk around and worry
I guess I've walked the darkest avenue

Yesterday I sang a love song
but today I sing the blues
Now it strikes me kind of funny
how life can be this way
We were lovers last night honey
but not in love today
Now it strikes me kind of funny
how faith can be unfair
it seems that I'm the one
to lose in every love affair
Yes it must be written for me
That I should be the one to always lose
Yesterday I sang a love song
but today I sing the blues

Now it strikes me kind of funny
how life can be this way
We were lovers last night honey
but not in love today
Now it strikes me kind of funny
how faith can be unfair
it seems that I'm the one
to lose in every love affair
Yes it must be written for me
That I should be the one to always lose
Yesterday I sang a love song
but today I sing the blues

The Gypsy Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

In a quaint caravan there's a lady they call the gypsy
She can look in the future and drive away all your fears
Everyone of your fears
Everything will come right if you'll only believe the gypsy
She could tell at a glance that my heart was so full of tears

She looked in my hand and told me my love was always true
But yet in my hearts I knew dear somebody else was kissing you
But I'll go there again cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true and will come back to me someday

She looked in my hand and told me my love was always true
But yet in my hearts I knew dear somebody else was kissing you
But I'll go there again cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true and will come back to me someday

It's The Talk Of The Town Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Encore

I can't show my face,
can't go any place
People stop and stare
it's hard to bare
Everybody knows you left me
you left me
It's the talk of the town

Every time we meet
my heart skips a beat
We don't stop to speak
tough it's been a week
It's the talk of the town

We send our invitations
to friends and relations
Announcing our wedding day
Friends and relations
send congratulations
How can I face them
What can I say
Let's make up sweetheart
we can't stay apart
Don't let foolish pride
keep you from my side
How can a love like ours be ending
It's the talk of the town

God Bless The Child Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

God bless the child, the child that's got his own
Them that's got shall get
them that's not you lose
So the bible says and it still is news
mama may have, papa may have
but God bless the child that got it's own
God bless the child that got it's own

Yes, the strong gets more
while the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
mama may have, papa may have
but God bless the child that got it's own
God bless the child that got it's own

When you've got money
you've got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
When it's gone spending ends
They don't come no more
Which relations give, crust of bread and such
You can help yourself but don't take too much

mama may have, papa may have
but God bless the child that got it's own
God bless the child that got it's own

She's Funny That Way Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

Not much to look at, nothing to see
I'm glad I'm living, and I'm lucky to be
But I got a woman crazy 'bout me
She's funny that way

ain't got a dollar, can't save a cent
She never holler, she'd live in a tent
I've got that woman mad about me
She's funny that way

Though she loves to work and slave for me every day
She'd be so much better off if I went away

But why should I leave her?, Why should I go?
She'd be unhappy without me I know
I've got that woman crazy 'bout me
She's funny that way

I've got that woman mad about me

she's funny that way

I've got a right to sing the blues,
got the right to moan and sigh
I've got a right to sit and cry
down along the river

A certain girl in this old town
keeps dragging my heart around
All I see for me is misery

I've got the right to sing the blues
got the right to moan and cry
I've got a right to sit and cry
down along the river

Call it love say what you choose
I've got a right to sing the blues
I've got a right, got a right,
got a right to sing the blues
got the right to moan and sigh
got a right to sit and cry
down along the river

Soon that deep blue sea
is gonna be calling me
Call it love, say what you choose
I've got a right to sing the blues
the blues, the blues, the blues
I've got a right to sing the blues

Good Morning, Heartache Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

Good morning heartache
you ole gloomy sight
Good morning heartache
thought we said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed until it seemed you were gone
Now here you are with the dawn
Wish I'd forget you but you're here to stay
It seems I met you when my love went away
Now everyday I start by daying to you
Good morning heartache, what's new

Stop haunting me now
can't shake you, know how
just leave me alone
I've got the Monday blues
straight through Sunday blues

Good morning heartache
Here we go again
Good morning heartache
you're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hanging around
Good morning heartache, sit down

There ain't nothing I can do
or nothing I can say
Just what I want to anyway
And I don't care just what people may say
And if I, if I take a notion
the jump-off into the ocean
Ain't nobody's bizness if I do
And if I go to church on sunday
then cabaret all day monday
It ain't nobody's bizness if I do

if my baby ain't got no money
and I say take all of mine honey
Ain't nobody's bizness if I do
If I give my baby my last nickle, O
and it leaves me, leaves me in a pickle
it ain't nobody's bizness if I do
I'd rather from my baby to hit me
then to jump off and quit me
Ain't nobody's bizness if I do
Nobody's bizness if I do

Comes Love Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

Come a rain storm put your rubbers on your feet
Comes a snow storm you can get a little heat
Comes love nothing can be done
Comes a fire then you know just what to do
Blow a tire You can buy another shoe
Comes love nothing can be done
Don’t try hidin?
'Cause there isn’t any use
You’ll start slidin?
When your heart turns on the juice
Comes a headache you can lose it in a day
Comes a toothache see the dentist right away
Comes love nothing can be done!

Comes a heat wave you can hurry to the shore
Comes a summons you can hide behind the door
Comes love Nothing can be done
Comes the measles you can quarantine the room
Comes a mousie you can chase it with a broom
Comes love nothing can be done
That’s all brother
If you’ve ever been in love
That’s all brother
You know what I’m speaking of!
Comes a nightmare you can always stay awake
Comes depression you may get another break
Comes love nothing can be done!

Lover Girl Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

I don't know why
but I'm feeling so sad
I long to try something
I've never had
Never had no kissin', o
what I've been missing
Lover girl, o where can you be

The night is cold
and I'm so all alone
I'd give my soul
just to call my own
got a moon above me
but no one to love
Lover girl, o where can you be

I've heard it said
that the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
I go to bed with a pruger?
that you make love to me
Strange as it seems
someday we'll meet
and you dry all my tears
then whisper sweet little things in my ear
Hugging and kissing
oh what we've been missing
Lover girl, o where can you be
Lover girl, o where can you be

Let's Call The Whole Thing Off Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady
(originally by Fred Astaire)

You say either, I say either
You say neither, I say neither
either, either
neither, neither
Let's call the whole thing off

You like potatoes, I like potatoes
You like tomatoes, I like tomatoes
Potatoes, potatoes
tomatoes, tomatoes
Let's call the whole thing off

And if we call the whole thing off
Then we must part
And if we ever part
that might break my heart

You wear pajamas, I wear pajamas
I wear pajamas and give up pajamas
And for we know we need each other so
We better call the calling off off
Better call the whole thing off

And if we call the whole thing off
Then we must part
And if we ever part
that might break my heart

If you like oysters, I like oysters
I order oyster and cancel the oyster
And for we know we need each other so
We better call the calling off off
Better call the whole thing off

Lover, Come Back To Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

The sky was blue and high above
The moon was new, and so was love
The eager heart of mine was singing
Lover, lover where can you be

You came at last, love had his day
That day is past, you gone away
This aching heart of mine is singing
Lover, lover come back to me

When I remember every thing you used to do
I’m so lonely
Every road I walk along
I walk along with you
No wonder, no wonder, I am lonely

The sky is blue, the night is cold
The moon is new, but love is old
And while I’m waiting here
This heart of mine is singing
Lover, lover come back to me
Lover, lover come back to me
Lover, lover come back to me

Solitude Lyrics

In my solitude you haunt me
with memories of days gone by
In my solitude you taunt me
with memories that never die
I sit in my chair, I feel despair
No one can be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad
In my solitude I pray
dear Lord above send back my love

They Can't Take That Away From Me Lyrics

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
They can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off-key
The way your haunt my dreams
They can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we dance 'til three
The way you changed my life
No, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me

Crazy In Love With You Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Tribute To The Lady

I say I'll move the mountains
and I'll move the mountains
if she wants them out of the way
crazy she calls me
sure I'm crazy
crazy in love I say

I say I'll go through fire
and I'll go through fire
as she wants it so it shall be
crazy she calls me
sure I'm crazy
crazy in love you see

like the winds shakes the bows
she moves me with a smile
the difficult I'll do right now
the impossible will take a little while
I say I care forever and I care forever
If I have to hold up the sky
crazy she calls me
sure I'm crazy
crazy in love am I

[background singers]
I say I care forever and I'll care forever
If I have to hold up the sky

crazy she calls me
sure I'm crazy
crazy in love am I

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

Far away places with strange sounding names
Far away places over the sea
Those far away places with strange sounding names
Are calling, calling me

Goin' to China, or maybe Siam
I wanna see for myself
Those far away places
I've been reading about
In a book that I took from a shelf

I start getting restless whenever I hear
the whistle of a train
I pray for the day I can get underway
And look for those castles in Spain
they call me a dreamer
well maybe I am
But I know that I'm burning to see
Those for away places with strange sounding names
calling, calling me
calling, calling me

Under Paris Skies Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

Stranger beware
There's love in the air
Under Paris skies
Try to be smart
And don't let your heart catch on fire
Love becomes king
The moment it's spring
Under Paris skies
Lonely hearts meet
Somewhere on the street of desire

Parisian love can bloom
High in a skylight room
Or in a gay cafe where hundreds of people can see

I wasn't smart
And I lost my heart
Under Paris skies
Don't ever be a heartbroken stranger like me

Oh I fell in love
yes I was a fool
for Paris can be
so beautifully cruel
Paris is just a gay coquette
who longs to love and then regret
stranger beware there's love in the air

Just look and see what happened to me
Under Paris skies
watch what you do
the same thing can happen to you

Ai-ai-ai-ai
oh-oh-oh-oh
ai-ai-ai-ai
oh-oh-oh-oh

south of the border
down Mexico way
that's where I fell in love
when stars above came out to play

and now as I wonder
my thoughts ever stray
south of the border
down Mexico way

she was the picture
in old Spanish lace
just for a tender while
I kissed the smile
upon her face
for it was siesta
and we were so gay
south of the border
down Mexico way

then she sighed as she whispered manana
never dreaming that we were parting
and I lied as I whisperd manana
for our tomorrow never came

south of the border
I rode back one day
there in a veil of white by candlelight
she kneeled to pray
the missionbells told me
that I musn't stay
south of the border
down mexico way

Ai-ai-ai-ai
oh-oh-oh-oh

Bali Ha'i Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

Bali Ha'i may call you
any night, any day
In your heart you'll hear it call you
Come away, come away

Bali Ha'i will whisper
on the wind of the sea
Here am I your special island
Come to me, come to me

Your own special hopes
your own special dreams
Bloom on the hillside
and shine in the streets
If you try you'll find me
where the sky meets the sea
Here am I your special island
come to me, come to me

Bali Ha'i, Bali Ha'i, Bali Ha'i

If you try you'll find me
where the sky meets the sea
here am I your special island
Come to me, come to me

Bali Ha'i, Bali Ha'i, Bali Ha'i

Way down among the Brazilians,
Coffee beans grow by the billions,
So they've got to find those extra cups to fill,
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.

You can't get cherry soda,
'Cause they've got to sell their quota,
And the way things are I guess they never will,
They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil,
No tea or tomato juice,
You'll see no potato juice,
'Cause the planters down in Santos all say No! No! No!

A politician's daughter,
Was accused of drinking water,
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill,
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.

Arrivederci Roma,
Goodbye, goodbye to Rome

City of a million moonlit places
City of a million warm embraces
Where I found the one of all the faces
Far from home

Arrivederci Roma
It's time for us to part

Save the wedding bells for my returning
Keep my lover's arms outstretched and yearning
Please be sure the flame of love keeps burning in her heart

City of a million moonlit places
City of a million warm embraces
Where I found the one of all the faces
Far from home

Arrivederci Roma
It's time for us to part

Save the wedding bells for my returning
Keep my lover's arms outstretched and yearning
Please be sure the flame of love keeps burning in her heart

Arrivederci roma,

London By Night Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

London by night is a wonderful sight
there is magic a brawl in the air
I'm often told that the street turn to gold
when the moon shines on circus and square
deep in the dark that envelops the park
there's a man and his cigarette's low
down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems
seem to wink at each girl and her boy

up comes the moon when the city's asleep
he's not alone for it sings
somewhere up there stands an angel to keep her watch
while each Londener dreams

my love and I saw the sun leave the sky
then we kissed in the fast fading light
most people say they love London by day
but lovers love London by night

most people they love London by day
but lovers love London by night

Jamaica Farewell Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

Down the way where the night are gay
And the sun shines dearly on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
I won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls swing to and fro
I must declare my love to is there
Tough I’ve from Maine to Mexico

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
I won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town

Down at the market you can hear
Ladies crying out while on their heads they bear
Ackee rice, salt fish on ice and
the rum is fine any time of year

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
I won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
I won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town

Galway Bay Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

If you ever go across the seas to Ireland
Then maybe at the closing of your day
You will sit and watch the moonrise over Claddagh
And see the sun go down on Galway Bay

To hear again the ripple of the trout stream
The women in the meadows making hay
To sit beside the turf fire in the cabin
And watch the barefoot goosoons at their play

For the strangers came and tried to teach us their ways
They scorned us just for being what we are
But they might as well go chasing after moonbeams
Or light a penny candle from a star

And if there's going to be a life hereafter
And somehow I am sure there's going to be
I will ask my God to let me make my heaven
In that dear land across the Irish Sea

Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
Nature fashioned roses kissed with dew
And then she placed them in a bower
It was the start of you.
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
I dreamed of paradise for two.
You are my paradise completed.
You are my dream come true.

Sweet Leilani

I dreamed of paradise for two.

The Japanese Farewell Song Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

The time has come for us to say sayonara
my heart will always be yours for eternity
I knew some time we'd have to say sayonara
please promise that you'll be returning someday to me

I'll remember our romance until the day that I die
I'll see your face in the moon and stars in the sky
so, hold me close before you say sayonara
and promise that you'll always keep me near to your heart

I'll remember our romance until the day that I die
I'll see your face in the moon and stars in the sky
so, hold me close before you say sayonara
and promise that you'll always keep me near to your heart
always keep me near to your heart

The House I Live In Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Cooke's Tour

the house I live in
a plot of earth, a street
the grocer and the butcher
and the people that I meet
the children in the playground
the faces that I see
all races, all religions
that's a miracle to me

the place I work in
the worker at my side
the little town or city
where my people lived and died
the howdie and the handshake
the air of feeling free
the right to speak my mind out
that's a miracle to me

the things I see about me
the big things and the small
the little corner newsstand
and the howls a mile tall
the wedding in the churchyard
the laughter and the tears
the dream that's been a-growing for a 150 year

the town I live in
the street, the house, the room
the pavement of the city
are a garden all in bloom
the church the school the clubhouse
the million lights I see
but especially the people
that's a miracle to me

Hey There Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

Hey there, you with the stars in your eyes
Love never made a fool of you
You used to be too, yes, Hey there
You on that high-flying cloud

Tough she won't throw a crumb at you
You think someday she'll come to you
Better forget her
her with her nose in the air
She has you dancing on a string
Break it and she won't care

Hey there, won't you take this advice
I hand you like a brother
Or are you not seeing things to clear
Are you too much in love to hear
Is it all going in one ear and out the other
hmm and out the other, in one ear and out the other

won't you take this advice
I hand you like a brother
Or are you not seeing things to clear
Are you too much in love to hear
Is it all going in one ear and out the other
hmm and out the other, in one ear and out the other

Mona Lisa Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
It is only ‘cause you’re lonely
They have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you rael Mona Lisa
Or just as cold and lonely, lovely work of art

Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa
Or just as cold and lonely, lovely work of art

Too Young Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

They try to tell us we're too young
Too young to really be in love
They say that love's a word
A word we've only heard
But can't begin to know the meaning of
And yet we're not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all
And yet we're not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

The Great Pretender Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

oh yes, I'm the Great pretender
pretending I'm doing well
my need is such
I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

oh yes, I'm the Great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I play the game
but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make-belief
Too real when I feel what my heart can conceal
oh yes, I'm the Great pretender
just laughing 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-belief
Too real when I feel what my heart can conceal
oh yes, I'm the Great pretender
just laughing 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

Unchained Melody Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

O, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
Times goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh:
wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

O, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
Times goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

The Wayward Wind Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind
Is a restless wind that yearns to wander
On the eye was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

And a lovely shack by a railroad track
I spent my younger days
and I guess the sound of the outward bound
made me a slave to my wandering days
and the wayward wind

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind
Is a restless wind that yearns to wander
On the eye was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

I met her there in a border town
We vowed we'd never part
though I tried my best to settle down
now she's alone with the broken heart

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind
Is a restless wind that yearns to wander
On the eye was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Secret Love Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

Once I had a secret love
that lived within the heart of me
All too soon my secret love
became impatient to be free
So I told a friendly star
the way that dreamers often do
Just how wonderful you are
and why I'm so in love with you
Now I shouted from the highest hill
Even told the golden daffodils
At last my heart's an open door
And my secret love's no secret any more
At last my heart's an open door
And my secret love's no secret any more

The Song From Moulin Rouge Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

Whenever you kiss
I worry and wonder
Your lips maybe near
but where is your heart
It's always like this
I worry and wonder
You're close to me here
but where is your heart

It's a sad thing to realize
that you have a heart that never melts
when we kiss do your close you eyes
pretending that I'm someone else
You must break the spell
this cloud that I'm under
So please won't you tell
darling where is your heart

It's a sad thing to realize
that you have a heart that never melts
when we kiss do your close you eyes
pretending that I'm someone else
You must break the spell
this cloud that I'm under
So please won't you tell
darling where is your heart

I'm Walking Behind You Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

I'm walking behind you
and I'll hear your promise
to love and obey
tough you may forget me
you're still on my mind

Look over your shoulder
I'm walking behind
Maybe I'll kiss again
with a love that's new
But I shall wish again
I was kissing you
'Cause I'll always love you
wherever you go
And tough we are parted
I wan't you to know
That if things go wrong dear
and faith is unkind
Look over your shoulder
I'm walking behind

Cry Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Hits Of The 50's

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
Well it's only false emotions,
that you feel

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

remember, sunshine can be found, behind a cloudy sky
so let your hair down and go on and cry
so let your hair down and go on and cry.

Venus Lyrics

O Venus, hey Venus
make my dreams come true
Venus if you will
Send a little girl for me to thrill
A girl who wants my kisses and my arms
A girl with all the charms of you
Venus make her fair
a lovely girl with sunlight in her hair
and take the brightest stars up in the skies
And place them in her eyes for me

Venus, goddess of love that you are
Surely the things I ask can't be too great a task
Venus if you do, I promise that I always be true
I'll give her all the love I have to give
As long as we both shall love

O venus, O venus
make my dreams come true
O Venus

Wonderful World Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book
Don't know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me, too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much trigonometry
Don't know much about algebra
Don't know what a slide rule is for

But I do know one and one is two
And if this one could be with you
What a wonderful world this would be

Now, I don't claim to be an A student
But I'm trying to be
For maybe by being an A student, baby
I can win your love for me

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book
Don't know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me, too
What a wonderful world this would be

La ta ta ta ta ta ta (History)
Hmm-mm-mm (Biology)
La ta ta ta ta ta ta (Science book)
Hmm-mm-mm (French I took)

Yeah, but I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me, too
What a wonderful world this would be

Desire Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

Desire me, desire me
As I desire you
Desire me and want me
That's all I ever ask of life
That you will someday come to me
And say that you love me
As I love you
Hmm

Desire me and tell me
That you are mine and mine alone
Desire me and love me
And be the queen upon my throne
For I will always worship you
No matter where you go or what you do

There comes a time in the life of every boy
When one and only one girl will do
So now the time has come
And I know that you're the one
And all that I will ever want is you

So desire me desire me
That's all I ever ask of you
Desire me and love and tell me that you want me too
For nothing else will matter in the world
As long as I am close to you

There comes a time
In the life of every boy
When one and only one girl will do
So now the time has come
And I know that you're the one
And all that I will ever want is you
So now the time has come
And I know you are the one
And all that I will ever want is you

Almost In Your Arms Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

You're here, that moment's near,
I'm almost in your arms
Tonight, the mood is right,
I'm almost in your arms

One sigh, one word
and I will rush to your embrace
Say that certain word,
sigh that certain sigh
And with all my heart,
to your arms I'll fly
It's strange, how we are changed
by things that seem so small
One look can write a book,
one touch can say it all

We know those nights alone,
and now we found our way
I'm almost in your arms,
nearly in your arms to stay

[repeat first and last verse]

That's Heaven To Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

The things that I see
As I walk along the streets
That's heaven to me

A little flower that blooms in May
A lovely sunset at the end of a day
Someone helping a stranger along the way
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me

The feeling I have when I hear a touching prayer
It makes me know, the Lord is somewhere
Even the birds flying around in the air
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me, no

It doesn't have to be a miracle
In order for me to see, I know
The goodness of my, my Savior
Is everywhere to me, woah, woah, woah

Even the children playing in the street
Sing a friendly hello to everyone that they meet
Even the leaves blowing out, blowing out
Blowing out, blowing out on the tree
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me, woah, woah

Woah woah, woah woah, woah Lord

Oh how I love you
every moment I can see your face
Oh how I love you
no one, no one could ever
never will take your place

oh how I love you

every morning when I rise
I can almost see you standing before my eyes
and every night when I go to sleep
my prayer is our love will keep
I long to see your smiling face
I long to feel your warm embrace
how could anyone ever take your place

oh how I love you
every moment I know I see your
oh how I love you
no one could ever take your place
oh how I love you

With You Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

With you
With you, although I am poor, I feel like a king
With you
With you, though I have nothing, I feel I have everything

But without you my dreams will soon fade away
I'd be here crying day after day, ohh
Promise me you'll never, never, never
Never leave me

Oh, when I'm with you
With you, oh life means everything to me
With you
With you, just like a child, I'm happy as I can be

But without you I'm lost like a child left alone
Crying for its mother and wishing she was home
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know you'll never, never, never leave me

Ohh, you are my love
For your wonderful, wonderful, wonderful love, I live
You are my life
For your wonderful love my life I'd gladly give

For only when I'm with you
With you, oh do I, do I, do I feel the way that I do
With you
With you, I found, I found, I found, I found the love that's always true

But without you I'm lost, so you find my way
I'd be here crying day after day, ohh
Promise, promise, promise me you'll never
Never leave me

Blue Moon Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

Blue moon,
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
You heard me sing a prayer
For someone I really care for

Then suddenly there appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
Then I heard somebody whisper:
„Please adore me!“ and when I looked
The moon had turned to gold

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Stealing Kisses Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

Stealing kisses, precious kisses
You should be ashamed, I trust in you
Stealing kisses, someone's kisses
Starting a romance that wasn't meant for you

I begged and begged you to be careful
But you were always acting smart
You kept on
Stealing kisses, precious kisses
And suddenly you stole my heart

(Stealing kisses, precious kisses)
You should be ashamed I trusted you
(Stealing kisses, someone's kisses)
Starting a romance that wasn't meant for you
(I begged and begged you to be careful)
But you were always acting so smart

Stealing kisses, precious kisses
You should be ashamed, I trust in you
Stealing kisses, someone's kisses
Starting a romance that wasn't meant for you

But now I wish we never, never, never part
Stealing kisses, someone's kisses
And suddenly you stole my heart

You Were Made For Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

A fish was made to swim in the ocean
A boat was made to sale on the sea
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me
You were made for me.
A grape was made to grow on a vine
An apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

We'll have our quarrels and you will upset me
But what can I do?
You've been mine ever since I met you and I'll never leave you
No I'll never leave you
As sure as there’s a heaven up above me,
From you I know I'll never be free.
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me.

A fish was made to swim in the ocean
A boat was made to sail on the sea
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me
You were made for me
A grape was made to grow on a vine
An apple, an apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

We'll have our quarrels and you will upset me
But what can I do?
You've been mine ever since I met you and i'll never
Never leave you.

As sure as there’s a heaven up above me,
From you I know I'll never be free
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

There I've Said It Again Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

(love you, love you)
I love you, there’s nothing to hide
It’s better than burning inside
I love you, no use to pretend
There I’ve said it again
I’ve said it, what more can I say
Believe me, There’s no other way
I just love you and will to the end
There I’ve said it again

I tried to drum up,
A frase that would sum up
All that I feel, that I feel for you
But what good are frazes
The thought that amazes
Is you love me and it’s so heavenly
Forgive me, for wanting you so
There’s one thing I want you to know
[?] and that I love you so
Heaven knows when
There I’ve said it again
There I’ve said it again

I Thank God Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

this wonderful world we live in
is God's masterpiece of art
and I live each golden moment
with his love in my heart

I thank God
for blessing me
with eyes to see
each wondrous day
and I thank God
for hands to help
my fellow man along the way

he gave me lips to speak the simple truth
and ears to hear to magic dreams of youth
I thank God for giving me
his blessed book with words divine
for now I know dear God I know
the miracle of life is mine

yes Dear God I know
the miracle of life is mine

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

Ooo, aaaa
(coming for to carry home) [x2]
Now swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
swing low, sweet chariot
right now
swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
swing low, sweet chariot

I looked over Jordan what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
I saw a band of angels coming after me
That's when I told them
Swing low, sweet chariot [x2]
If you get there before I do
Tell all of my friends I'm coming on too
Swing Low, sweet chariot [x2]
Sometimes I'm up
Sometimes I'm down
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground

I'm Just A Country Boy Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

(I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun)

I ain't gonna marry in the fall
I ain't gonna marry in the spring
Oh, for I am love with a pretty little girl
Who wears a diamond ring

And I am just a country boy, money have I none
Oh, but I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun
I have gold in the morning sun

I never gonna kiss the ruby lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
Oh, I'm never gonna ask her if she'd marry me
'Cause I know she'd turn me down

'Cause I am just a country boy
Money, money have I none
Oh, but I've got that silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun
I have gold in the morning sun

They Call The Wind MarĂ„«a Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

Way out west, they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire’s joe and
They call the wind Marīa

O no, Marīa blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flying
Marīa makes the mountain sounds
Like folks were up there dying
Marīa, They call the wind Marīa

Now before I knew Marīa's name
And heard her wail and whining
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shining
O, but then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I’m lost, I’m oh so lost
Not even God can find me

Marīa, O, Marīa, They call the wind Marīa
I hear they got a name for rain
and wind and fire only
but when you’re lost and all alone
there ain’t no words but lonely
And I’m a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Marīa, blow your love to me
I need my girl beside me
He, Marīa, O, Marīa
I’m lonely can’t you see
Marīa, O, Marīa
Please blow my love to me
Marīa, blow my love to me

Twilight On The Trail Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

When it's twilight on the trail,
And I jog along,
The world is like a dream
And the ripple of the stream is my song...

When it's twilight on the trail,
And I rest once more,
My ceiling is the sky
And the grass on which I lie is my floor...

Never ever have a nickel in my jeans,
Never ever have a debt to pay,
Still I understand what real contentment means,
Guess I was born that way...

When it's twilight on the trail,
And my voice is still,
Please plant this heart of mine
Underneath the lonesome pine on the hill...

Baby, baby

Chain Gang Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

(Hoh! Ah!) I hear something saying (Hoh! Ah!)

(Hoh! Ah!)(Well don't you know)
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, gang

All day long they're singing (Hoh! Ah!)

(Well don't you know)
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, gang

All day long they work so hard till the sun is going down
Working on the highways and byways and wearing, wearing a frown
You hear they moaning their lives away
Then you hear somebody say

That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, gang

Can't you hear them singing, mmm (Hoh! Ah!)
I'm going home one of these days
I'm going home, see my woman
Whom I love so dear
But meanwhile I gotta work right here

(Well don't you know)
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the chain, gang

All day long they're singing, mmm (Hoh! Ah!)
My work is so hard
Give me water
I'm thirsty, my work is so hard
Woah ooo
My work is so hard

Grandfather's Clock Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

tick tock, tick tock [x4]

now my grandfathers' clock
was too large for the shelf
so it stood 90 years on the floor
it was taller by half than the old man himself
though it weighed not a pennyweight more

now it was bought on the morn
of the day that he was born
and it was always his treasure and pride
but it stopped short never to go again
when the old man died

oh now my grandfather said
that of those he could hire
not a servant so faithful he found
for it wasted no time
and it had but one desire
atn the close of each week to be wound
and it kept in its place
not a frown on his face
and his hands never hung by its side
but you know that it stopped short
never to go again
when the old man died

now rang an alarm
in the dead of the night
an alarm that for years had been dumb
and we that his spirit
was 'plumming' for flight
that his hour for departure had come

still that clock kept the time
with a soft and muffled chime
as we solemnly stood by his side
but you know that it stopped short
never to go again
when the old man died

you know that it stopped short
never to go again
when the old boy died

Jeanie With The Light Brown Hair Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair
Borne like a vapor, on the summer's air
I see her tripping where the bright streams play
Happy as the daisies that dance on her way

Many were the wild notes her merry voice would pour
Many were the blithe birds that warbled them o'er
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair
Floating, like a vapor on the soft summer air

I long for Jeanie with the day dawn smile
Radiant in gladness, warm winning guile
I hear her melodies, like joys gone by
Sighing round my heart o'er the fond hopes that die
Sighing like the night wind and sobbing like the rain
Wailing for the lost one that comes not again
I long for Jeanie and my heart bows low
Nevermore to find her where the bright waters flow

Long, Long Ago Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

Tell me the tales that to me were so dear
and sing me the songs I delighted to hear

Now you are come all my grieve is removed
let me forget that so long you have roved
let me believe that you love as you loved

and now do you remember the path where we met
yeah you told me you never would forget

then to all others my smile you preferred
love when you spoke gave a charm to each word
still my heart treasures the praises I heard

though by your kindness my fond hopes were raised
I know you've by more eloquent lips have been praised
but by long absence your truth has been tried
still to your accents I listened with pride
blessed as I was when I set by your side
long, long ago
long ago

Pray Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

O pray when you're feeling low
when the ill wind blows
don't forget to pray

pray when you go to bed
for your daily bread
don't forget to pray

you can awake to beautiful morning
when you got troubles remember this warning
and pray until judgement day
God the devil to pay
if you never pray

pray, lalalalala
pray, lalalalala

you can awake to beautiful morning
when you got troubles remember this warning
and pray until judgement day
God the devil to pay
if you never pray

if you'd only pray

You Belong To Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

All of my love belongs to you
All of my love belongs to you
All of my love belongs to you
Because you, you belong to me

Even my hands belong to you

Oh, even my voice belongs to you

Even my voice belongs, belongs to you

Goin' Home Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : Swing Low

goin' home
goin' home
I'm a going on
quiet like some still day
I'm just going home

It's not far
It's just close by
through an open door
work all done
care laid by
going to fear no more

mother's there
expecting me
father's waiting too
lot's of folk
gathered there
all the friends I knew
all the friends I knew

nothing loss of days
no more fret or pain
no more stumblin on the way
no more longing for the day
going to roam no more

that morning star lights the way
restless dream all done
shadows gone
break off day
my real life just began
I'm a going home
I'm a going home
I'm a going home

Don't Get Around Much Anymore Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

Missed the saturday dance
I heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
I don't get around much anymore

Darling I guess, my mind is more at ease
But nevertheless why stir up old memories

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
I don't get around much anymore

O, I miss that saturday dance
But I heared they flooded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

So I thought I'd visit the club
But I only got as far as the door
Someone will have asked me about you
I don't get around much anymore

Darling I guess, my mind is more at ease
But nevertheless why stir up old memories

Been invited on dates
might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
I don't get around much anymore

Little Girl Blue Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

No use old girl
You might as well surrender
Your hope is getting slender
Why won't somebody send a tender blue boy
To cheer up little girl blue

Sit there and count your fingers
What can you do?
Old girl you're through
So sit there and count your little fingers
Unlucky little girl blue, whoa

Sit there and count the raindrops falling on you
It's time you knew
That all, all you count is the raindrops
That's falling on
Little blue girl

No use old girl
You might as well surrender
Your hope is getting slender
Why won't somebody send a tender blue boy
To cheer up little girl blue

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

Out In The Cold Again Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

The song that you sang so sweetly
you called it our love refrain
now it's gone and I am left completely
I'm out in the cold again

I dreamed that our love would linger
but just, just memories remain
I gaze at a ringless finger
looks like I'm out in the cold again

so true, it hurts my pride
to step aside for somebody new
o but, deep down inside
my whole world depended on you

I wanted your arms around me
to shelter, to shelter me from the rain
oh but now I back where I started
oh, I'm out in the cold again
oh, I'm out in the cold again
one more time
I'm out in the cold again

But Not For Me Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

They're writing songs of love, but not for me
A lucky star's above, but not for me
With love to lead the way,
I've found more clouds of grey
Than any Russian play could guarantee

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Heigh ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can't dismiss the memory of her kiss
I know she's not for me

It all began so well, but what an end
This is the time a feller needs a friend
Although I can't dismiss the memory of her kiss
I'm so well aware she's not for me

Exactly Like You Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

I know why I waited
know why I've been blue
I've been praying for someone, baby
exactly like you
why should we spend money, on a show or two
while no one does those love scenes, baby
exactly like you

you make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
you seem to understand
each foolish little dream I'm dreaming
and the schemes I'm scheming

now I know why mother taught me to be true
she meant me for someone, baby
exactly like you

just like you, baby, oh
just like you
mother meant me for someone exactly like you

I know why I waited
know why I been blue
I've been waiting for someone, baby
exactly like you
why should we spend money on a show or two
while no one does those love scenes, baby
exactly like you

you make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
you seem to understand
each foolish little dream I'm dreaming
and the schemes I'm scheming
now I know why mother taught me to be true
she meant me for someone
exactly like you

just like you, baby, just like you
mother meant me for someone exactly like you
just like you, baby, pretty just like you
mother meant me for someone exactly like you

I'm Just A Lucky So And So Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

as I walk down the street
everyone that I meet
gives me a friendly hello
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

the birds in every tree
they are so neighborly
they sing wherever I go
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

but if you ask the amount
in my bank account
I'll have to admit I'm kinda slipping
but that don't bother me
'cause confidentially
I have a dream that is pippin

and when the day is through
each night I hurry to
home where my love waits, I know
I guess I'm, I gotta be a lucky so and so

but if you ask the amount
in my in my bank account
I'll have to admit that I'm slipping
but I know that don't bother me
'cause confidentially
I've got a dream that is pippin

and when the day is through
each night I hurry to
home where my love waits, I know
I guess I'm, I gotta be a lucky so and so

I guess, I know I'm a lucky lucky

Baby won't you please come home
cause your bed is alone
I have tried so hard in vain
Nevermore to call your name.
When you left, you broke my heart,

Every hour in the day you can hear me say,
Baby, won't you please come home?

Trouble In Mind Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
I know the sun's going to shine
In my back door someday

I got that trouble in mind, that's true
I have almost lost my mind
Life ain't worth living
Sometimes I feel like dying

Tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm going to lay,
On some lonesome, railroad line
And let two-ten train
Ease my trouble in mind

Meanwhile I got that
Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
I know the sun's going to shine
In my back door someday

If things don't get better
I'm going down to the river
I'm gonna take my old rocking chair
And if the blues overtake me
I'm gonna rock on away from here

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
I know the sun's going to shine
In my back door someday

I'm not worried cause I know
I know the sun's going to shine
In my back door someday

I know the sun's going to shine
In my back door someday

Album : My Kind Of Blues

You're always my mind
Instilled in my heart
You're always on my mind
Although we are apart
You're always, always
Always on my mind

Baby, the reason why I know
I can't forget your face
Cause everywhere I go
I see you everyplace
You're always, always
Always on my mind

Life is so empty
Along with a broken heart
Please, please tell me
Honey, why did we have to part

You know it's you I love
To my heart you hold the key
I pray the stars above
That you hurry back to me
You're always, always
You're always on my mind

The Song Is Ended Lyrics

Artist : COOKE, SAM
Album : My Kind Of Blues

The song is ended
But the melody lingers on
you and the sun are gone
but the melody lingers on

The night was splendid
and the melody seemed to say
O, summer will pass away
Take your happiness while you may
There beneath the light of the moon
We sang a love song that ended too soon
The moon descended and I found at the break of dawn
That you and the sun are gone
but the melody lingers on
but the melody lingers on
That you and the sun are gone
but the melody lingers on

The night was splendid
and the melody seemed to say
O, summer will pass away
Take your happiness while you may
There beneath the light of the moon
We sang a love song that ended too soon
The moon descended and I found at the break of dawn
That you and the sun are gone
but the melody lingers on
