come on home

I know it's been a long time
And a long, long, lonely road.
And I know that I hurt ya, babe
And I just can't make that go.

Baby, please don't make me
Go through all this all alone
It was hard enough before you left
But now there's just no hope

And if you're wondering why I called today
I just called to say,

Baby, I love you, and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Won't you come on home.

Baby won't you promise me
You won't never, never go

I know it's been a long road
And you've come along, long way
And I know that I hurt ya baby,
And I just can't make that go away

And if you're wondering
Why I called today
I just called to say

Baby, I love you. and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on home.

The Righteous Indignation Rag

Hi folks,

As the politicians continue their parties in this election season, I've written this little satirical rag to help us recover our righteous indignation and moral outrage over what these bozos have done to our country and world. Everyone can sing along:

So, a one-a and a two-a:

The Righteous Indignation Rag

Welcome friends, how do you do
Glad to see some of you pullin’ through
Tell me now and tell me true
Has this ol’ world been lyin’ to you

Gather round and tip your hat
The shadow man is the one in the black
Got your name and number too
Photographed in red, white and blue

Blame it on the liberal pinko fags
Do the righteous indignation rag

You know, my god he don’t love the Jews
The camel jockey ‘slamics too
The Buddhists man can be such a bore
Drop those atheists dead on the floor

I know ‘cause Falwell told me so
Now serving time way down below
No air-conditioned fat cat limousine
Just dinin’ on his sulfur and kerosene

So be you straight or dressed in drag
Do the righteous indignation rag

Come on, boys, let’s join in the fight
Through the gates of Hell we’ll be marchin’ tonight
Dress you up in khaki and green
A pocket bible and an M-16

You can fire on everything in sight
God’ll sort ‘em out later tonight
So jump onboard the war’s begun
The new world order is a barrel of fun

So wrap my ass up in the flag
Do the righteous indignation rag

They bomb my brain with EMP
My guitar replies with its own remedy
Dancin’ in the grass to keep me sane
My mind goes a’ridin’ on the wind and the rain

They call, “To arms!”, but I ignore
Back myself right out of that door
Locked forever, I’m gone, goodbye
I got no mind for the idiot lies

Time to split this scene’s a drag
Do the righteous indignation rag
Do the righteous indignation rag
Do the righteous indignation rag…

Peace,
Byrd

ain't the way

What was that You used to say to me
Things sure ain't What they used to be.

Running crazy in the streets
Living alone in between the sheets
Was a struggle just to make it day-to-day
Always looking for a better way.

Never quite seen Anything come free
No, things sure ain't what they used to be.

Kids running crazy in the streets
Night walker's dream, but they never sleep
You talk so loud, but you look afraid
Now it's time to sleep in the beds we made.

So, well, come in to reality
Still the same as it's always been
And if you're still into the run around
Well, everybody else long gone to ground.

What was that You used to say to me
Yeah things sure ain't What they used to be.

pink fluffy clouds

Stranger in a strange land

I'm drifting away on
Pink Fluffy Clouds

I pause while
the picture changes

You seem to appear
Right out of nowhere

But it just keeps on
Getting stranger,
Stranger and stranger.

You turn your head
And toss your hair
And I feel you
Getting closer

How can I get you to
Come over here
So I can tell you what
I already told you

What I already told yuh
What I already told yu-uh.

That I'm drifting away on
Pink Fluffy Clouds
I pause while the picture changes.

You seem to appear
Right out of nowhere,

But it just keeps on getting
Stranger and stranger
Stranger and stranger.

Ran into an old friend....

in the lot at ratdog show
Just strollin around
checking out the sounds
heard my name from the crowd
took a look around
My old friend Dave!!
Back from the haze
of the grate ole daze!
We hugged and kissed
but how sad my sister he did miss
he never got to say goodbye
it left a tear in his eye.

puddlehead & puddin time

Puddlehead and Puddin' Time
Came out west in '49
To the gold fields they would go
A miracle, was theirs to know

They left St. Louie, one fine day
Early in the month of May
Onto the plains, they made their way
The children laughed, the horses neighed

Into the wilderness they moved
Past the Omaha and Sioux
They crossed the Rockies, by South Pass
God's creations, built to last

They endured both sun and shower
Stopped a while at Franklin's Tower
Re-supplied, and with new power
Nothing here could make them cower

Then one day they came to see
A village of Shoshone
They hailed the chief, and made their rest
Smoked the peace pipe, passed the test

Broke out fiddle, and banjo
Danced all night under moonglow
Good friends they had come to know
But now it was time to go

One last stretch of barren waste
Was staring them right in the face
They prayed unto their Lord and Giver
And made it to the Truckee River

Now more mountains in their sight
They crossed over the Range of Light
To Sutter's Fort, they made their way
And waited out the winter's rains

Prospecting in the spring thaw
They moved up a secluded draw
And there beside a rushing stream
They knew that they had found their dream

Puddlehead and Puddin Time
Six long months they worked the mine
Broke their backs in heat and cold
And dug up fify pounds of gold
