The lion sleeps tonight

  

In the jungle, the mighty jungle

The lion sleeps tonight

In the Jungle, the quiet Jungle

The lion sleeps tonight

 

Near the village, the peaceful village

The lion sleeps tonight

Near the village, the quiet village

The lion sleeps tonight

 

Hush my darling, don’t fear my darling

The lion sleeps tonight

Hush my darling, don’t fear my darling

The lion sleeps tonight

 

 

Blowin' in the wind     G

  

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must the white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they are forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?

 

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

 

I am sailing           G K3

 

I am sailing, I am sailing
Home again 'cross the sea
I am sailing, stormy waters
To be near you, to be free

I am flying, I am flying
Like a bird 'cross the sky
I am flying, passing high clouds
To be with you, to be free

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night, far away?
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say

Can you hear me …

 We are sailing, we are sailing
Home again 'cross the sea
We are sailing stormy waters
To be near you, to be free

 

  

Yesterday               G  K2

 

Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away;
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play;
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play;
Now I need a place to hide away.

Oh, I believe in yesterday.   

 

 

Country Roads     C / K1

 

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah the River.

 

 

Life is old there, older than the trees,
younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.

 

Country Roads, take me home,to the place,
I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma,
take me home, country roads.

 

All my mem'ries, gather round her,

miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky.

Misty taste the moonshine, teardrops in my eye.

 

Country Roads, take me home,to the place,
I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma,
take me home, country roads.

 

I hear her voice,
in the mornig hour she calls me.
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And driving down the roads I get the felling
that I should have been home
yesterday, yesterday.

 

Country Roads, take me home,to the place,
I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma,
take me home, country roads.

 

Country Roads …

 

 

Bad moon rising    C

I see   the bad moon arising
I see   trouble on the way
I see   earthquakes and lightnin'
I see   bad times today

Don't go ´round tonight

It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

I hear   hurricanes blowing
I know   the end is coming soon
I fear   rivers over flowing
I hear   the voice of raze and ruin

Don't go ´round tonight …
 
Hope you   got your things together
Hope you are   quite prepared to die
Looks like   we're in for nasty weather
One eye   is taken for an eye

Don't go ´round tonight …

 

 

  

Hallelujah      G / K1

 

 

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you ?
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah  -  Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong    but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne    she cut your hair
And from your lips, she drew the Hallelujah
      //      Hallelujah …

Baby I have been here before
I've know this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before, I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
   //       Hallelujah …

Maybe there's a God above
But, all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

 

And it's not a cry, you can hear at night
It's not somebody, who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah      
//       Hallelujah …

 

  

Banks of the Ohio     A

 

I asked my love to take a walk,
to take a walk, just a little walk
Down beside, where the waters flow
down by the banks of the Ohio

And only say that youll'be mine
in no other's arms entwine
Down beside, where the waters flow
down by the banks of the Ohio

I held a knife against her breast,
as into my arms she pressed
She cried my love, don't murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity

And only say that you'll be mine …
 
I started home, tween twelve and one
I cried: "My god, what have I done?
I've killed the only woman I love
because she would not be my bride

And only say that you'll be mine …

 

 

 

Boat on the River      Am

  

 

Take me back to my boat on the river
I need to go down, I need to calm down
Take me back to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out any more
Time stands still as I gaze in her waters
She eases me down, touching me gently
With the waters that flow past my boat on the river
So I don't cry out anymore

Oh the river is wide
River it touches my life like the waves on the sand
All roads lead to Tranquility Base
Where the frown on my face disappears

 

Take me down to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out anymore

Oh the river is deep
River it touches my life like the waves on the sand
All roads lead to Tranquility Base
Where the frown on my face disappears

 

Take me down to my boat on the river
I need to go down
Won't you let me go down
Take me back to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out anymore
I won't cry out anymore
I won't cry out anymore

 

 

 

House of the rising sun

  

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

 

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

With one foot on the platform
And the other foot on the train
I'm going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

 

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
To spend your life in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And god, I know I'm one

 

  

Wild  rover     D

 

  

I've been a wild rover for many a year

And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer,

And now I'm returning with gold in great store

And I never will play the wild rover no more.

 

And it's no, nay, never  -  No nay never no more,

Will I play the wild rover  -  No never no more.

 

I went to an ale-house I used to frequent

And I told the landlady my money was spent.

I asked for a bottle, she answered me "nay

Such a custom as yours I could have any day."

 

And it's no, nay, never …

  

I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright

And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.

She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best

And the words that I spoke sure were only in jest."

 

And it's no, nay, never …

 

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done

And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.

And if they caress (forgive) me as ofttimes before

Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.  And it's …

 

 

 Whiskey in the jar     G

  

When I was goin' over    Kilgary mountain
I met captain Farrell   and his money he was counting
I first drew my pistol   and rattled my saber

Saying "Stand and deliver    for you’re a bold deceiver"

 

 Mush  a  ring-dumme, du-dumme da
Wack fall the daddy-o    wack fall the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar    (2mal)

  

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket and I took it to my Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy
 -  Mush-a ring …

 

T’was early in the morning,   before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen   and likewise captain Farrell
I first drew my pistol,   but alas I was mistaken
for I fired off my pistol,    so a prisoner I was taken
 -  Mush-a ring …

 

They put me in jail   without judge or writing

For robbing captain Farrel    on Kilgary mountain

But they didn’t take my fists,   so I knocked the sentry down

And I bid a long farewell    to the judge in Slingo town  -  Mush-a ring …

 

Some take delight    in the hurling and the bowling

and others take delight    in the carriages a rolling
but I take delight    in the juice of the barley
courting pretty maids    in the morning bright and early
 -  Mush-a ring …

 

 

Let it be

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom  -  Let it be

And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom  -  Let it be

Let it be, let it be   -   Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom -  Let it be
 

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer  -  Let it be

For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer  -  Let it be
 

Let it be, let it be … 

… There will be an answer  -  Let it be
… Whisper words of wisdom  -  Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow  -  Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom  -  Let it be-e

 

 

 

Tom Dooley

  

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Poor boy, you're bound to die.

 

  

I met her on the mountain.

I hoped she’d be my wife

But this girl refused me.

So I stabbed her with my knife.

 

  

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Poor boy, you're bound to die.

 

  

This time tomorrow.

Reckon where I'll be.

Down in some lonesome valley

Hangin' from a white oak tree.

 


Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley.

Poor boy, you're bound to die.

 

  

Hey Jude

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Jude, don't let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
You're waiting for someone to perform with
And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you'll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh

 

Nah nah nah nah - na na na nah

Na na na nah - Hey Jude …
