    It's so hard to come by
    That feeling of peace
    This friend of mine said
    Close your eyes
    And try a few of these
    I thought I was flying like a bird
    So far above my sorrow
    When I looked down
    I was standing on my knees
    Now I need someone to help me
    Someone to help me please

    Baby if you need me
    Like I know I need you
    There's just one thing
    I'll ask you to do
    Take my hand and lead me
    To the hole in your garden wall
    And pull me through
    Pull me through

    I had a lover
    I don't think I'll risk another
    These days, these days
    And if I seem to be afraid
    To live the life that I have made in song
    It's just that I've been losing so long
    I've stopped my dreaming
    I won't do too much scheming
    These days, these days
    These days I sit on corner stones
    And count the time in quarter tones to ten
    Please don't confront me with my failures
    I had not forgotten them
    And I guess that I just don't know

    One of my favorites but yanno..... that's a Jackson Browne song (though she recorded it first). He wrote that song at 16. Such an old soul............

    This one is about 500 years old, the themes of love, jealousy, privilege, rage are immemorial. It went to the US and Canada with migrations of folks and many versions exist, it then came back again, it had pretty much died out in the U.K. except for in Scotland. The story of the singer pretty tragic too, lovely voice and guitar.

    Any minute now, my ship is coming in
    I'll keep checking the horizon
    I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
    Come crashing down down down, on me

    And you say, be still my love
    Open up your heart
    Let the light shine in
    But don't you understand
    I already have a plan
    I'm waiting for my real life to begin

    When I awoke today, suddenly nothing happened
    But in my dreams, I slew the dragon
    And down this beaten path, up this cobbled lane
    I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again

    And you say, just be here now
    Forget about the past, your mask is wearing thin
    Just let me throw one more dice
    I know that I can win
    I'm waiting for my real life to begin

    Any minute now, my ship is coming in
    I'll keep checking the horizon
    And I'll check my machine, there's sure to be that call
    It's gonna happen soon, soon, oh so very soon
    It's just that times are lean

    And you say, be still my love
    Open up your heart, let the light shine in
    Don't you understand
    I already have a plan
    I'm waiting for my real life to begin

    On a clear day I can see, see for a long way
    On a clear day I can see, see for a long way

    No surprise, but Wes Anderson used that one beautifully.






    Speaking of Wes. The man has a real knack for putting beautifully sad songs with powerful scenes.

    I still call it The Jake.

    Seven pages and nobody's posted Marie.


    And a lot of these Townes songs were covered brilliantly by Steve Earle - I don't know which versions I like better.

    Townes is in the thread (I posted him on the first page), there's so many of his that belong here.

    It's probably already posted but the all time classic is of course I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. The PBS show from the ryman the other night was great. Looking forward to the Ken burns series, even though it will probably be full of self important inanities from shelby Foote wannabes.

    By the time I get to Phoenix, she'll be rising
    And she'll find that note that I left hanging on the door
    And she'll laugh when she reads the part
    That says: "I'm leaving"
    'Cause I've left that girl so many times before
    And by the time I get to Albuquerque, she'll be working
    And she'll take off time just to give me a call
    And she'll hear that phone keep right on ringing and ringing
    On the wall, yeah oh, that's all
    And by the time I make Oklahoma, she'll be sleeping
    She'll turn softly in her sleep and call my name out low
    And then she'll cry just to think that I'd really leave her, I left her
    But time after time after time I tried to tell her so
    But she just didn't know that I would really go
    That I would really go

    One of the most haunting songs I know.
