my life

I ain't got no place to call my own
I ain't got no place, I'm all alone

Ain't got no wife
Stay out all night
Cause I ain't got no life.

But i'll tell you why
These are the best
Days of my life
Cause I got you
Lord, cause I got you.

I'm losing hair
I'm losing sleep
I'm making promises
I can't keep
Time slips away
To no one knows where
If I think about it too much
I get scared

I ain't got no place to call my home
I ain't got no place, I'm all alone

Ain't got no wife
Stay out all night
Cause I ain't got no life.

But I'll tell you why
These are the best
Days of my life,
Cause I got you,
Lord, cause I got you.

Words

Just need a moment to clear my head,
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to rise.
One more time singing, one more time bringing
Everything to life, in my mind.

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to shine.
Telephone wires singing, trying to get higher
Thinking that, there are no words

Words. I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to rise.
Bird on the wire singing. I have no idea,
What was I thinking? That there are no words

Words. Well, I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them.

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine. Allow my spirit to shine.
Wind on the wire Singing. I have no idea,
What are you thinking? Words

Words. Well, I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine. Allow my spirit to rise
One more time singing, One more time bringing
Everything to Life. In my mind.

Reason to beleive

Just give me a reason to believe,
And I'll go on,

Wearing my heart out on my sleeve,
I'll carry on,

Just give me a reason to hope,
And I'll go on,

No matter how steep the slope,
I'll carry on,
I'll carry on.

Just give me a piece of your heart,
And I'll go on,
Just a little piece of your heart,
That I'll carry on.

Just give me a reason to believe,
And I'll go on,
Wearing my heart out on my sleeve,
I'll carry on,
I'll carry on.

No don't go

No please don't go

Just please stay

We will pass our time away

Inside the sunshine

That we have stumbled

Upon.

Now that you're home

Stay awhile

Take a load off your bones,

And let me say

I don't ever want to see

You go away.

thanks for the kind words, stuman and tl. i'm just trying to express a little intelligence,
while i appear to be here. at any given moment, i'm gettin' way more than i'm givin',
especially when it comes to dead.net. i enjoy trying to find my way around
this vast virtual library architecture, and reading yer'all posties. love, andy
ps i try to tiptoe in while you're all sleeping, and lay little poem-roses on your pillows,
for when you awaken.

Think you are a gifted poet. Agree w/Stuman-think you are very very good. Am really liking your poems-your style, your darkish undertones, the words you chose. They read like songs. Thank you sooo much for sharing!

Sleeping Dogs

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterday's coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us.

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the Jets

Cause I got nothin' to add
To this pile of words
Just don't want to see you
Turn your butter into swords

So if you find me dreaming
You might just leave me be
Don't you know some stones
Are better left unturned

Sometimes it's better to
Just walk on by
Walk on by and
Let sleeping dogs lie.

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterdays coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the jets.

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
