"The Fish And The Bird"

"The Fish And The Bird"


When I gave my heart
To a tinker boy
He said a fish could love a swallow
And I will go with my travelling man
Wherever he goes I will follow

He will mend
Your pots and pans
Your kitchen knives he'll take and sharpen
Then I'll be gone with my travelling man
And never more your doorway darken

The fish and the bird
Who fall in love
Will find no place to build a home in
The fish and the bird who fall in love
Are bound forever to go roaming

"The Fizzy And The Still"

"The Fizzy And The Still"


Sunday morning, here we are
The boy's come home
Not quite the movie star

He's been in Hollywood
The boy's come home
The boy's done good

He says she asked too high a price
Neglecting to declare
What sits between them there on ice,
Chilled, with the fizzy and the still:
He tried but didn't make it there

'It's not for me
It's not for me'

Sunday papers, here we are
The boy's come home
The boy's come home

"The Last Laugh"

"The Last Laugh"


Don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh my friend
Don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh at the end

Down in the gutter with the mad old soldiers
Down in the scuppers with the drunken sailors
Down in the gutter with the metal mad old soldiers
But the last laugh, baby is yours

And don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh going down
Games you thought you'd learned
You neither lost nor won

Dreams have crashed and burned
But you're still going on
Out on highway with the road gang working
Up on a mountain with the cold wind blowing

Out on the highway with the road band working
But the last laugh, baby is yours
And don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh going down

They had you crying but you came up smiling
They had you crawling and you came up flying
They had you crying and you came up smiling
And the last laugh, baby is yours

And don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh going down
Yeh don't you love the sound
Of the last laugh going down

"The Mist Covered Mountains"

"The Mist Covered Mountains"


Oh ro soon shall I see them;
Oh he ro see them oh see them.
Oh ro soon shall I see them the
mist covered mountains of home.

There shall I visit the place of my birth
And they'll give me a welcome the warmest on earth
All so loving and kind full of music and mirth,
In the sweet sounding language of home.

Oh ro soon shall I see them;
Oh he ro see them oh see them.
Oh ro soon shall I see them the
mist covered mountains of home.

There shall I gaze on the mountains again,
On the fields and the woods and the burns and the glens,
Away 'mong the corries beyond human ken
In the haunts of the deer I will roam

Oh ro soon shall I see them;
Oh he ro see them oh see them.
Oh ro soon shall I see them the
mist covered mountains of home.

Hail to the mountains with summits of blue,
To the glens with their meadows of sunshine and dew.
To the women and men ever constant and true,
Ever ready to welcome one home.

"The Next Time I'm In Town"
(with Chet Atkins)

"The Next Time I'm In Town"
(with Chet Atkins)



Now it's been something seeing you again
In this time we've had to spend
You've been so good to be around
I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me going on until
The next time I'm in town
Though I won't be back here for a while
Or hear your laughter, see you smile
And I'll remember what went down
I can't tell you how or when
But I'll be seeing you again
The next time I'm in town
Now the places and the faces range
'Cross the bridge of time and change
Once again I'm homeward bound
There's one thing I promise you
And that's another rendezvous
The next time I'm in town
Now it's been something seeing you again
And in this time we've had to spend
You've been so good to be around
And I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me goin' on until
The next time I'm in town
It's been something seeing you again
And in this time we've had to spend
You've been so good to be around
And I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me goin' on until
The next time I'm in town
It's been something seeing you again
And in this time we've had to spend
You've been so good to be around
I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me goin' on until
The next time I'm in town
'Til the next time I'm in town
'Til the next time I'm in town

"The Ragpicker's Dream"

"The Ragpicker's Dream"


When Jack Frost came for Christmas
With a brass monkey date
The rail-king and the scarecrow
Hopped a Florida freight
And they blew on their paper cups
And stared through the steam
Then they drank half a bottle
Of Ragpicker's dream where

The whiskey keeps following
Cold pitchers of beer
Me and my associate
Like the clientele here get
The onions and the ‘taters
Rib-eyes on the grill
Toothpicks and luckies
And a coffee refill as

The rail-king lay rocking
He was leaving the ground
Then he was flying like Santa Claus
Over the town where
He came to the window
Of a house by a stream
It was a family Christmas
In the ragpicker's dream there

Were kids at the table
All aglow in the light
Music in the wintertime
Sure carries at night there
Was turkey and gravy
Pie and ice-cream
And gifts for each and everyone
In the ragpicker's dream where

The red-eye keeps tumbling
In our glasses of beer
Me and my associate
Like the service in here there's
A ten for your trouble
You have beautiful hair
Make the last one two doubles
It's a cold one out there where

The scarecrow and the rail-king
Have started to dance
But a nightstick and a billyclub
Won't give peace a chance here
I think they went thataways
Your song and dance team
Heading home for the holidays
With the ragpicker's dream on

His knees like a fighter
The rail-riding king
Like a sack of potatoes
Like a bull in the ring where
The scarecrow falls over
With a tear in the seam
Home for the rover
In the ragpicker's dream where

The red-eye keeps tumbling
Like tears in our beer
Me and my associate
Like the ambience here where
They cornered two castaways
In a white flashlight beam Merry Christmas and happy days
In the ragpicker's dream

"The Scaffolder's Wife"

"The Scaffolder's Wife"


The scaffolder's wife
Driving out of the yard
With a face that's as hard
As a scaffolder's bar -
When she goes into town
She might take the top down
On the car

The quick little steps
In the stiletto boots
And the hair with the roots
She comes in as a rule
To get the nails done
And the tan for the sun
When the kids are in school

Don't begrudge her the Merc
It's been nothing but work
And a hard life
Losing her looks
Over company books
- the scaffolder's wife

In the wicked old days
When they went it alone
Kept the company going
On a wing and a prayer
They don't pay what they owe
When they have the cash flow
- they don't care

Don't begrudge her the Merc
It's been nothing but work
And a hard life
Losing her looks
Over company books
- the scaffolder's wife

"The Story Of Yesterdayevening And A Whole Bunch Of"

"The Story Of Yesterdayevening And A Whole Bunch Of"


Jonas - The story of yesterdayevening and a whole bunch of other days yet to be continued...

Looking out of the window into the dark
wish I was somewhere else
I see your face, in the glass
and I think about the past

I miss you
I miss you

I sad I'm sorry, but I cannot be
I cannot be you
And if it's not me, than whom should I be
To be close to you

I miss you
I miss you
I do... whoo

And if it's not mean to be
than why does it hurt
when I think about
All day I think of you

I miss you
I miss you
whoo

You say it isn't me
and it's to yourself
than what should I do
Than what should I do
what should I...

I miss you
I miss you
whoo

"The Trawlerman's Song"

"The Trawlerman's Song"


We're taking on water
Diesel and stores
Laying up awhile
Before I'm back on board
They're patching her up
To go fishing again
They're welding her rudder
Scrubbing her keel
Scars on her belly
Need time to heal
In the dock
With the trawlermen

I know all the people
There's nobody new
Soon we'll be leaving
With the same old crew
On the green water
The tumbling sea
They ain't running
Like the good old days
Time's just slipping
Down the old slipways
In the dock
So dear to me

Dark is the night
I need a guiding light
To keep me
From foundering
On the rocks
My only prayer
Is just to see you there
At the end
Of my wandering
Back in the dock

I could use a layoff
Getting my strength back
But there's a loan to pay off
And a few skipjack
So it's a turnaround
Back in the southerly wind
Pirates coming in
To steal our gold
You can count yourself lucky
With a profit in the hold
In the dock
When we come in

Dark is the night
I need a guiding light
To keep me
From foundering
On the rocks
My only prayer
Is just to see you there
At the end
Of my wandering
Back in the dock

"The Way It Always Starts"

"The Way It Always Starts"


It gets so dark before the dawn
That's when it gets to me
Before the city symphony of taxi horns

That's the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart

Last night I thought I heard my name
Well it was too dark to see, but it had to be
The voice was just the same

That's the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart

So tell me why should it have to be this way
Why can't it be all right
Why can't I sleep at night?
Why should it have to be this way?
Why must there be this price to pay?

Now all the streets are dark and bare
Oh, if you can live in this town
And stick around, you can live anywhere

That's the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart
