Without You 04:10
Feelin' mired, overtired gonna stick it out 'til the end Everybody knows the score I'm still without you Still without you Flashing warm-hearted smiles Singing old songs Seeds of truth I cling to in a world that will forget and I'm still without you Still without you Still without you Friday nights have come and gone each one I let it slip away Still without you Still without you Everywhere we're gonna share a love that keeps us movin' on Without you Love's lost, say it's a waste but I'm never gonna throw it away Love's lost, ball and chain, but I'm never gonna throw it away We are love of amigos true When we're blues We're radiatin blues, food to keep us groovin deep in time Deep in time Left out in the cold a few blessed souls stayed right by my side Still without you Still without you Everywhere we're gonna share a love that keeps us movin' on Without you Love's lost, say it's a waste but I'm never gonna throw it away Love's lost, ball and chain, but I'm never gonna throw it away

Rollin' 'way against the tide, searchin' for a fate (fate hides by your side) While eyes and stealy stares, rise to take my place (take my place to fight) Aimless souls and Sunday mimes, rushin' for the gates (I don't come in) Makin' eyes and savin' lives, lives that turned away (For they will all win) Yeah they're gone Gone without a trace 'Cause they know Heaven ain't the place Crazy love is understood as well as all we know (anyone can know) We can all state the facts official faces quote (quote the status quo) Yeah they're gone Gone without a trace 'Cause they know Heaven ain't the place You and I are just a pain of crossed up crazy fools (fools, are we all fools?) You'll be here as long as I give to you my soul (so long as I try) Think you're gonna need somebody (repeat this over and over)

Goin' down Texas way, gonna leave in the mornin' and drive all day, oh yeah Pack up everything I own, got no reason to stay since my baby's gone, oh no Goin' down to My old place of rest My folks I hardly ever knew They died Before I turned two I've been Waitin' for so long Sometimes I don't feel son strong Like when I's a young boy But when I grow old...Oh lord Make it light for me Make it light for me Goin' up to New York City, gonna leave this old town 'cause it don't look pretty no more Sweet fine woman loves me every time, she gives me her love she never takes a dime, oh no Goin' down to My old place of rest To my Woman who loves me best She knows We can never be 'Cause I feel Like I'm most at home Under Summer's warm soft dawn Before I must go on my way And we make love...oh babe Make it light and sweet Make it light and sweet Goin' up to Mirror Lake gonna leave in the mornin' and drive all day oh yeah I don't care if I ever get there 'cause I'm havin' fun, gettin' to my destination Goin' down to My old place of rest My friends They will always yearn Young friends Slowly take their turn Baptized By the river clean Sweet earth Stars sky and trees Fall down Heal what we can't see And when I return...oh Lord Keep it like it is Keep it like it is

Sunny Old Day Wastin' all my time Keepin' me away from where I need to be Sunny old love A blur on my mind Sunny old day's bringin' tears to mine eyes Ridin' high on the winds of June Without your love there's nothin' to lose Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day Lazy old sky Driftin' on by The face that I remember changed in time Fool in the rain Feelin' no pain Hopin' the skies will part and bring it all back again Sunny old day I'm out of my mind All that's dear has already died Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day Sunny old day I'm out of my mind All that's dear has already died Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day

JL Stiles San Francisco, California

I would love to fingerpick and sing just like Blind Blake but as everyone knows, this is like becoming the Buddha.
