Woke up this morning the breeze blowin' cross my face
And I just had to look up above and thank somebody for this place
Because He must've been thinkin' bout me
When he planted that very first dogwood tree
It's where I want to be
Livin' in the Sweet Virginia Breeze

Take me out to the country it feels mighty good out there
When I get back to the city of the monuments
It doesn't matter where I hang my hat it's home to me
The Blue Ridge Mountains tend to set me free
It's where I want to be
Livin' in the Sweet Virginia Breeze

A policeman knew my name

And preachin' from my chair

Here, hum this then:

Bravely bold Sir Robin
Rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin.

His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowls unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his pen--

Of the people who just might understand
That how together yes we can
Create a country better than

A prophet or just a crazy God damn
Dreamer of a fool - yes a crazy fool" Harry Chapin What made America Famous

RAGGED OLD FLAG

I walked through a country court house square
On a park bench an old man was sitting there
I said, “Your court house is kinda run down”
He said, “Naw, it’ll do for our little town”
I said, “Your flag pole has a leaned a little bit
And that’s a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it”
He said, “Have a seat” and I sat down
“Is this the first time you’ve been in our little town?”
I said, “I think it is,” he said “I don’t like to brag
But we’re kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag
You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
When Washington took it across the Delaware
And it got powder burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watchin’ it writing ‘Say Can You See’
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packinham and Jackson tuggin’ at its seams
And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the Texas flag but she waved on through
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard and Bragg
And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag
On Flanders Field in World War I
She got a big hole from a Bertha Gun
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp and low by the time it was through
She was in Korea and Vietnam
She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam
Native Americans, brown, yellow and white
All shed red blood for the Stars and Stripes
In her own good land here she’s been abused
She’s been burned, dishonored, denied and refused
And the government for which she stands
Has been scandalized throughout the land
And she’s getting threadbare and wearing thin
But she’s in good shape for the shape she’s in
Cause she’s been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more
So we raise her up every morning, take her down every night
We don’t let her touch the ground and fold her up right
On second thought I do like to brag
Cause I’m mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag.”

"She Couldn't Change Me" by Montgomery Gentry

Sometime I think what turned her on
Was my old broke down boots
She wanted her a real cowboy
It was a phase she was goin' through

But not one week after she moved in
I caught her paintin' the bedroom blue
She brought home a bottle of pink Chablis
And poured out my best brew

I was sittin' on the porch in my overalls
While she packed her things to leave
She changed her mind when she couldn't change me

She changed direction headed out west
Changed her tune to some hip-hop mess
Her dark brown hair went blonde
And her pretty blue eyes went green
She changed everything when she couldn't change me

She was sittin' beside the ocean
Looking out at the waves
Watching how they keep on rollin'
But always seem the same

She called and said she'd been thinkin' about
All those quiet country nights
And whatever she thought was so wrong with me
Suddenly seemed all right

I was sittin' on the porch in my overalls
When her truck pulled into view
She said I changed my mind when I couldn't change you

She changed direction headed back home
She changed her tune it's all Haggard and Jones
She had her dark brown hair pulled back
And blue eyes like you've never seen
She changed her mind when she couldn't change me

She said I guess when you love someone you just gotta let it be
Yeah, she changed her mind when she couldn't change me

Creed - What If

I can't find the rhyme in all my reason

I feel I've been beaten down

I can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your ax has cut the roots that feed them

Burial grounds and merry-go-rounds

Horses on posts and kids and ghosts

What do you do with the sands of time
When they carve out lines around your eyes
I can close my fists up good and tight
But I cant hold back the sands of time
What do you do with a memory
That just hangs around and stares at me
I can tear that frame down off the wall
But it wont erase the things I saw
What do you do with old regrets
Theres a box full underneath the bed
Just close enough not to forget
But what do you do with old regrets
Theres old house key in a kitchen drawer
To the door I cant unlock no more
Sometimes I hold that key real tight
But what do you do after goodbye

I don't know what the world may need,
and I never grasped your complexities.
I'd be happy just to get your attention.
And, I don't know what the world may want,
but your long, sweet body lying next
to mine could certainly raise my spirits.

Cause what the world needs now
is a new Frank Sinatra
so I can get you in bed.
Cause what the world needs now
is another folk singer
like I need a hole in my head. - Cracker

This is the reason I hike:

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine
Staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to nought
Or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desparation is the English way
The time is gone
The song is over
Thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

between flesh and what's fantasy; And the poets down here

I don't know how I'm gonna do it...

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river, and were those tears that filled your eyes?

And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying, have they got you hypnotized?

And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers, but all that lives is born to die.

And so I said to you that nothing really matters, and all you do is stand and cry.

But now's the time to look and look again at what you see, is that the way it ought to stay?

I know it dates me, but the song that I especially love on long distance walks as fall approaches is the September Song. It stirs multiple memories.

Oh, it's a long long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
And you ain't got time for waiting game

When days dwindle down to a precious few
September November,
And these few golden days I'd share with you
Those golden days I share with you

If you wanna be happy
For the rest of your life,
Never make a pretty woman your wife,
So from my personal point of view,
Get an ugly girl to marry you.

The rumors flew
But nobody knew
How much she blamed herself
For years and years
She tried to hide the whisky on her breath

She finally drank her pain away
A little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough
To get him off her mind
Until the night

She put the bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees

We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whisky lullaby
