Do You Believe In Magic

Favorite Line(s):
If you believe in magic,
Come along with me
We’ll dance until morning
‘Til there’s just you and me
And maybe,
If the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow,
Sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing,
Baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music
And the music’s in me

It’s A Good Night For Singing

Favorite Line(s):
I wonder
Where are all the pleasant souls
Tonight
Indecision made them stay home
And wait for daylight
Spherical witness,
Help me in my flight
Comment(s):
Now, I’ve never claimed to be much of a vocal talent (singer).  My range tends more to the roar than to the octave.  I have, on more than one occasion, had the opportunity to roar along with this particular song.  But then, that’s what NCO’s do when stationed in Germany, playing cards, smoking cigarettes, talking trash, drinking beer and listening to country music.  We build fading memories…
Thanks for the memories Jerry Jeff Walker (March 16, 1942  –  October 23, 2020).  You’ll be missed.  I think it’s time to go hoist a shot of whiskey…

I Believe

Favorite Line(s):
I believe above the storm
The smallest prayer
Will still be heard
I believe that someone in
The great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear
A newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I know
Why I believe

Just My Imagination

Favorite Line(s):
Soon
Soon we’ll be married..
And raise a family.
Have a cozy,
Little home
Out in the country
With two children,
Maybe three.
I tell you, I
Can visualize it all.
This couldn’t
Be a dream
For too real
It all seems.

What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted

Favorite Line(s):
The roots of love
Grow all around
But for me they come
A tumblin’ down
Every day heartaches grow
A little stronger
I can’t stand
This pain much longer
I walk in shadows
I’m searching for light
Cold and alone,
No comfort in sight
Hoping and praying
For someone to care
Always moving and
Goin’ nowhere
What becomes of the broken-hearted
Who had love that’s now departed?
I know I’ve got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
Help me

Silence On The Line

Favorite Line(s):
I guess that now’s the time
I’d better tell her
“Hon I’ve got this friend
That’s here with me
He used to be a cowboy
And a good one so they say
But now his legs are crippled
He can’t walk, you see”
“But hon you ought to hear him tell his stories
Sing the old songs play the guitar too
And I’d really like to show him Colorado
But I thought I’d better leave it
Up to you”
