BRAND NEW STETSON (Non Album Single)

 

I don’t want to say I’m sorry

I don’t want to make you worry baby

You and I could go into town

You and I could bring it all down

 

I could buy a brand new stetson

You could buy a brand new dress on maybe

We could drive down to the park

We’ll pretend we’re big movie stars

 

Hey now I think it’s crazy

You still want to be my baby now

I wanna be your baby too

 

I’ve been thinking lately

About the night that you first met me

I was playing drums on your head

That’s a night I’ll never forget

 

I could buy a brand new Stetson

You could buy a brand new dress and maybe

We could drive down to the park

We’ll pretend we’re big movie stars 

 

Hey now I think it’s crazy

You still want to be my baby now

I wanna be your baby too

WHERE IN THIS WORLD (HAS GONE MY BABY?) (Non Album Single)

Where in this whole wide world

Has gone my baby?

I saw her yesterday

Talking on the phone

Maybe she's with the boys

Have you seen her lately?

Maybe she's all alone

Yeah she's all alone

Maybe she's a lonely girl

Maybe she's a lonely girl

Maybe she's a lonely girl

But I can never tell...

Maybe she's a lonely girl

Maybe she's a lonely girl

Maybe she's a lonely girl

But I can never tell

If she's trying to change me

Maybe she's crazy, maybe she's a lonely girl

And maybe she's my kind of girl

Maybe she's crazy, maybe she's my kind of girl

Super lonely lonely, lonely girl

Maybe she's crazy, maybe she's a lonely girl

Oh lonely lonely lonely girl

Maybe she's crazy, maybe she's my kind of girl

And maybe she's my kind of girl

Maybe she's crazy, maybe she's a lonely girl

I've been waiting for my lonely girl

You know I've been waiting all my life

For some lonely girl to make my wife

And you know that it's true

That my love for you can't be held inside

It'll never do

I need you babe, I want you babe

I can't hide it anymore

My love and affection

They need some kind of direction

I need no rejection

Have me all you want

FOREPLAY 1

I won't let you come my way

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

I won't let you get in my way

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

I know you might feel the same

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

I would take you anywhere

Anywhere the people stare

I would catch if you were falling

Relax its only foreplay darling

I don't want to bring you down

You never will girl

Not in this world

I have acted such a clown

You never will girl

Not in this world

As the sun heats up the ground 

You never will girl

Not in this world

I would take you anywhere

Anywhere the people stare

I would catch if you were falling

Relax its only foreplay darling 

Good fortune gonna come my way

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

And I won't let you get away

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

Cause I know you might feel the same

Won't you bring it on down

Let it all out

And I would take you anywhere

Anywhere the people stare

I would catch if you were falling

Relax its only foreplay darling 

I would take you anywhere

Anywhere the people stare...

MADNESS AT THE HEART OF IT ALL

I met a girl and her name was Tuesday

She never knew she was so far from home

She never wanted anyone to guide her

She never wanted anyone to ever let her go...

The shadows are calling

Like the deputies won

Much like the table

He laid his last pocket

Full of powder down upon

She came to his bedside

And said my love no

He opened his dying eye

And thought about a time

He opened up his mind

And let it grow

Madness at the heart of it all

The Lone Ranger cries at the sound of the bugle call

The dangers of the outside world getting to us all

Madness at the heart of it all

It takes two to tango it takes one to fall

The dangers of everything are getting past us all

Madness at the heart of it all

Madness at the heart of it all

-John Hewitt-

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE IN FEAR

I see the maples and their leaves

Shaking hands with the breeze

And the highway in my mind

With an exit to the sea

On my way to Avonlea

With the sun going down

You don't have to live in fear

This time my child

You see it everyday

The rifles fired again
old men on the streets

Young men sleeping in their beds

I called to you in Paris

When you fired another round

You don't have to live in fear

This time my child

I took a train to the rockies

I took a boat out to the sea

I took a paper and a pencil

And I wrote these words for thee

Its a struggle I know

But we'll make it there somehow

You don't have to live in fear

This time my child

Whether you're at the bottom

Or the top of Everests peak

The snows of Kilimanjaro

Or a far gone refugee 

There's something here to hold you

If you dare to walk the mile

You don't have to live in fear 

This time my child

-John Hewitt- 

GONE FROM MY MIND

I've been waiting here since dawn

Listening to music that's been gone

From my mind for far too long

Later in the day I know

I will look through rain and snow

Just to find out where she'd go

I can't track her state of mind

I can't get her out of mine

Since I left you far behind

Thinking about my little lady

Wondering where she's been lately 

Through the echoes in my mind

While I'm here I sit beside

The only love I cannot hide

Like a wind from far west blows

Through the cornfields row on row

I will keep just what I sew

I've been here since early dawn

Listening to music that's been gone

From my mind for far too long

I'm thinking about my little lady

Wondering where she's been lately
