Lucky Old Sun – Bob Dylan & Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers

February 13, 2009

Up in the morning. Out on the job,
I work like the devil for my pay.
But that lucky old sun has got nothing to do
but roll around heaven all day.

Fuss with my woman and toil for my kids.
Sweat till I’m wrinkled and gray.
But that lucky old sun has got nothing to do
but roll around heaven all day.

Oh Lord above can’t you hear me crying?
Tears running down my eyes.
Send down the cloud with the silver lining,
Take me to Paradise.

Show me that river. Take me across.
Wash all my troubles away.
Like that lucky old sun that’s got nothing to do
but roll around heaven all day.

Walls – Tom Petty

July 4, 2008

Some days are diamonds.
Some days are rocks.
Some doors are open.
Some roads are blocked.

Sundowns are golden.
Then, they fade away.
And if I never do nothing,
I’ll get you back some day.

‘Cause…

You got a heart so big
it could crush this town.
And I can’t hold out forever
even walls fall down.

And all around your island
there’s a barricade.
It keeps out the danger.
It holds in the pain.

And, sometimes you’re happy.
Sometimes you cry.
Half of me is ocean.
Half of me is sky.

And some things are over.
Some things go on.
And part of me you carry.
Part of me is gone.
