"Ghost On The Canvas" (2011)

A Better Place lyrics - Glen Campbell

I've tried and I've failed Lord
I've won and I have lost
I've lived and I've loved, oh
Such times, at such a cost

One thing I know
The world is good to me
A better place awaits you, you see

Some days I'm so confused, Lord
My past gets in my way
I need the ones that I love most
To hold me more each day

Oooh, a better place.

Ghost On The Canvas lyrics - Glen Campbell (feat. Paul Westerberg)

I know a place between life and death for you and me
Let's take hold on the threshold of eternity
And see the ghost on the canvas
People don't see us ghost on the canvas
People don't know when they're looking at souls

In between here and there there's a place that we can grow
Spirits make love in a wheat field with crows
Like a ghost on a canvas people don't see them
Ghost on a canvas no oh oh oh
They never see souls

Ring around the rosary pocketful of prosary
Ashes to ashes we all fall in love
With ghost on the canvas

[riff]

We dream in colour others they colour their dreams
Takes one to know one a Spirit always knows when it's seen
Like a ghost on a canvas never can happen
Ghost on a canvas
It's the so oh oh ul that makes them goohhhhhh
People don't know ohh ohhh ohhh
When they're looking in so oh oh uls
Better take ho oooh ooh ld
I'm the ghost on the canvas

A Thousand Lifetimes lyrics - Glen Campbell

I’ve lived at least a thousand lifetimes
Walked down a road with no end in sight
I’ve seen miracles in moonlight
And lonely goodbyes

I’ve faced the consequence and sorrow
Still I stood up and faced tomorrow
I’ve had dreams I’ve feared and followed
I found my way home

I’ve held onto coal in my bare hands prayin’ for diamonds
I’ve trusted in the words that to my face turned out were lying
I’ve trapped and I have tripped and I have loved and I’ve abandoned
Each breath I take
Is a gift that I
Will never take
For granted

I have washed upon the shore I’ve fallen, conquered demons
I’ve broken down and broken up without a rhyme or reason
I’ve held the ring of brass and many times smashed it to pieces
Each breath I take
Is a gift that I
Will never take
For granted

I’ve lived at least a thousand lifetimes
Walked down a road with no end in sight
I’ve seen miracles in moonlight
And lonely goodbyes

I’ve held onto coal in my bare hands prayin’ for diamonds
I’ve trusted in the words that to my face turned out were lying
I’ve trapped and I have tripped and I have loved and I’ve abandoned
Each breath I take
Is a gift that I
Will never take
For granted

It's Your Amazing Grace lyrics - Glen Campbell

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost but now I'm found
I was blind, but now, I see
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear

And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
Oh the hour I first believed
When we've, when we've been there
Lord, ten thousand years

Bright shining, bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Good's praise
Then when, we first begun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when we first begun

In My Arms lyrics - Glen Campbell

Got an easy place to be
In my arms, yeah in my arms
I got a simple space to feel free
In my arms, in my arms

Keep it on the recent
Keep it on the now
Give me an easy way out

It's a lovely world that I got
In my arms, baby in my arms
Got a lot of room to get lost
In my arms, baby in my arms

Keep it on the recent
Keep it on the now
Give me an easy way out

Keep it on the recent
Keep it on the now
Give me an easy way out

Got an easy place to be
In my arms, baby in my arms
You got nothing to fear from me
In my arms, baby in my arms
In my arms, baby in my arms

Nothing But The Whole Wide World lyrics - Glen Campbell

Nothing but the whole wide world to gain
Nothing, nothing
Got nothing but the whole wide world to gain
Nothing, nothing
Got nothing but the whole wide, whole wide world to gain

I'm here on the blacktop
The sun in my eyes
Women and country on my mind
Bolting me out
Over the borderline
Now there's no more love loss and no more shame
No more digging holes or graves
Nothing to lose but rivets and chains

Got nothing but the whole wide world to gain
Nothing but the whole wide world to gain
Nothing, nothing
Got nothing but the whole wide world to gain
Nothing, nothing
Got nothing but the whole wide, whole wide world to gain

Was born in a stable and built like an ox
Down in the pastures I learned how to walk
Mama, she raised me to sing and just let 'em talk
Said no rich man's worth his weight in dust
Bury him down same as they'll do us
God wants us busy, never giving up
He wants nothing but the whole wide world for us

Nothing but the whole wide world for us
Nothing, nothing
Well there's nothing but the whole wide world for us
Nothing, nothing
Well there's nothing but the whole wide, whole wide world for us

We ain't got no money, can't get no love
Never was too good at either of 'em I'm here for adventure whichever way it comes
But what good is an angel that won't catch up
Free falling now and I'm ready enough
I give my tears and I give my blood
I give nothing but the whole wide world for one

Nothing but the whole wide world for one
Nothing, nothing
Give nothing but the whole wide world for one
Nothing, nothing
Give nothing but the whole wide, whole wide world for one

Hold On Hope lyrics - Glen Campbell

Every street is dark
And folding out mysteriously
Where lies the chance
We take to be always working
Reaching out for a hand
That we can't see
Everybody's got a hold on hope
It's the last thing that's holding me

Invitation to the last dance
Then it's time to leave
That's the price we pay
When we deceive
One another animal mother
She opens up for free
Everybody's got a hold on hope
It's the last thing that's holding me

Look at the talkbox
In mute frustration
At the station
There hides the cowboy

Look at the talkbox
In mute frustration
At the station
There hides the cowboy
His campfire flickering
On the landscape
That nothing grows on
But time still goes on
And through each life of misery

Everybody's got a hold on hope
It's the last thing that's holding me
[x3]

Any Trouble lyrics - glen Campbell

Don't go
To any trouble
You know
I won't be here long

Hold me like a breath
You can count on me to 10
And any trouble you got
Will be gone

Don't go
To any bother
Your mother may
Never lay

Don't go
And make a fuss
And you forget about us
And any trouble you got will fade away

Don't pin your hopes
Don't pin your dreams
On misanthropes
And guys like me
Don't pin your hair
Let it hang down
Don't go to any trouble on my account

Don't go
To any trouble
You know
I must say, so long

Don't hold me like a trial
It's only for a little while
And any trouble you got
Will be gone
Any trouble you got will fade
All the trouble you got will fade away

Strong lyrics - Glen Campbell

As I look into these eyes I've known for all these years
I see for the first time in my life, fear
This is not the road I wanted for us, but now that's it's here
I want to make one thing perfectly clear

All I want to be for you is strong
I am going to be the one you can count on
I'll always be for you strong

I am a broken prize all neatly wrapped but cracked inside
All the king's horses and all his men, they lie
As I look at you and at my life, what do I see?
The person that I wish that I could be

All I want to be for you is strong

I am going to be the one you can count on
I'll always be for you strong

So strong
It's strong, so strong
Don't you know it can't go wrong?
Strong

There's No Me... Without You lyrics - Glen Campbell

The sun doesn't have to shine
It doesn't matter what I do
There's no me without you
We never have to be afraid
Heaven is a place for two
There's no me without you

We shall be forever two
There's no me without you

Once upon a lonely day
God came thru
He blessed me with you
I'm never gonna fade away
Your love won't allow me to
Can't you see?
I love you

We shall be forever two
There's no me without you

Wish You Were Here lyrics - glen campbell

[Bonus Track]

Dear friend of mine, the weather's fine
Today I saw some ruins of the Roman world's decline
And I climbed old Spanish steps, you've heard so much about
But Rome has lost its glory, I don't know what it's about

I wish you were here
When the shadows fall and the rushing traffic stills
I wish you were here
And the bells are ringing on the seven hills
I make my way to a small cafe
I wonder what you did today
I wish you were here

Dear one at home, I just flew in from Rome
And Paris is a postcard all decked out in color chrome
So I climbed the Eiffel Tower and I prayed at Notre Dame
But I just can't find the romance and I wonder why I came

I wish you were here
On the Champs-Élysées, lovers walking hand in hand
I wish you were here
They take one look at me and they seem to understand
This city of light is a lovely sight
The first bright star I see tonight
I wish you were here

Now I write this on the plane
And I'm drinking cheap champagne
And wonderin' why two people got so far apart

I wish you were here
Here in London where the rain is pouring down
I wish you were here
On this airplane headed back to L.A. town
I'll never leave you alone again
I'm coming home, but until then
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here

"Meet Glen Campbell" (2008)

Sing lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by Travis)

Baby, you've been going so crazy,
Lately nothing seems to be going right.
So low, why do you have to get so low?
You're so...
You've been waiting in the sun too long.

But if you sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing,
For the love you bring won't mean a thing,
Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing.

Colder, crying over your shoulder,
Hold her, tell her everything's gonna be fine.
Surely, you've been going too early,
Hurry 'cos no-one's gonna be stopped.
Na na na na...

But if you sing, sing, sing, sing sing, sing.
For the love you bring won't mean a thing.
Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing,

Uhhh...Ahh ahh..uhhh...

Baby, there's something going on today,
But I say nothing, nothing, nothing,
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing...[fades out]

But if you sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing,
For the love you bring won't mean a thing,
Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing.

Ohh baby sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing,
For the love you bring won't mean a thing,
Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing.

Walls lyrics - glen campbell

(originally by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

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

Sundowns are golden
Then fade away
And if I never do nothing
I'm comin' back some day, 'cause

[Chorus:]
You got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

All around your island
There's a barricade
That keeps out the danger
That holds in the pain

Sometimes you're happy
Sometimes you cry
Half of me is ocean
Half of me is sky, but

[Chorus]

Some things are over
Some things go on
Part of me you carry
Part of me is gone, but

[Chorus 2x]

Angel Dream lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

I dreamed you
I saw your face
Caught my lifeline
When drifting through space
I saw an angel
I saw my faith
I can only thank God it was not too late

Over mountains
I floated away
'Cross an ocean
I dreamed her name
I followed an angel
Down through the gates
I can only thank God it was not too late

Sing a little song
Loneliness
Sing one to make me smile
Another round for everyone
I'm here for a little while

Now I'm walking
This street on my own
But she's with me
Everywhere I go
Yeah, I found an angel
I found my place
I can only thank God it was not too late
I can only thank God it was not too late
I can only thank God it was not too late

Times Like These lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by Foo Fighters)

I, I'm a one way motorway
I'm a road that drives away
Then follows you back home
I, I'm a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
Burning off alone

(Uh huh huh)

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

I, I'm a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
I, I'm a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

(Uh huh huh)

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

(Oh [11x])

(Uh huh huh)

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
It's times like these time and time again
It's times like these time and time again

These Days lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by Jackson Browne)

Well I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these days
These days-
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
For you
And all the times I had the chance to

And I had a lover
It's so hard to risk another these days
These days-
Now if I seem to be afraid
To live the life I have made in song
Well it's just that I've been losing so long

I'll keep on moving
Things are bound to be improving these days
These days-
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
Don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them

Sadly Beautiful lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by The Replacements)

From the very first day that you were born
To the very last time you waved and honked your horn
Had no chance at all to watch you grow
Up so sadly, beautiful
Up so sadly, beautiful

Baby needs a brand new pair of eyes
'Cause the ones you got now see only goodbyes
Had no chance at all to let you know
You're so sadly, beautiful
You're so sadly, beautiful
You're so sadly oh so sadly, beautiful

Well you got your father's hair
And you got your father's nose
But you got my soul
Sadly, beautiful
You're so sadly, beautiful
You're so sadly oh so sadly, beautiful

From the very last time you waved and honked your horn
To a face that turned away pale and worn
Had no chance at all to let you know
You left me sadly, beautiful
You left me sadly, beautiful
You're so sadly oh so sadly, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

All I Want Is You lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by U2)

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold

But all the promises we made
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it
A treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night

You say you'll give me eyes in a world of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest

But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me through the night

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You
All I want is...you
All I want is...you
All I want is...you

Jesus lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by The Velvet Underground)

Jesus, help me find my proper place
Jesus, help me find my proper place
Help me in my weakness
'Cos I'm falling out of grace
Jesus
Jesus

Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by Green Day)

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to do.
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
I hope you had the time of your life.

I hope you had the time of your life.

Grow Old With Me lyrics - Glen Campbell

(originally by John Lennon)

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love

"Love Is The Answer: 24 Songs Of Faith, Hope And Love" (2004)

Lean On Me lyrics - Glen Campbell

Y'know, sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's
Always tomorrow

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
Oh, for, for it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

So, please, swallow your pride
If I have things
You need to borrow
Y'know, no, no one can fill
Those of your needs
That you won't let show

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
Well, I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it, it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
Well, I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Well, if there is a load
You have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right, I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just will call me

If you need a friend

Oh, call me

I'll be there

Call me, yeah

Try A Little Kindness lyrics - Glenn Campbell

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say you're goin' the wrong way
You've got to try a little kindness yes show a little kindness
Yes shine your light for everyone to see
And if you'll try a little kindness and you'll overlook the blindness
Of the narrow minded people on the narrow minded streets

Don't walk around the down and out lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day will help someone along their way
You've got to try a little kindness...
You've got to try a little kindness...

Amazing Grace lyrics - Glen Campbell

Oh amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost oh but now I'm found I was blind Lord but now I see
Through many dangers toils and snares that we already fear
Twas grace that brought the sake the spar and grace will lead us home
When we've when we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining bright shining as the sun
Lord we found this place to sing God's praise Lord as when we first begun
(Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost oh but now I'm found I was blind Lord but now I see)
Amazing amazing grace how sweet the sound...

You'll Never Walk Alone lyrics - Glen Campbell

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm there's a golden sky and the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk never walk alone
(Walk on walk on with hope in your heart) and you'll never walk alone
No you'll never walk never walk alone walk on

compilation: "The Legacy (1961-2002)" (2003)

Turn Around, Look At Me lyrics - Glen Campbell

There is someone walking behind you
Turn around, look at me
There is someone watching your footsteps
Turn around, look at me

There is someone who really needs you
Here's my heart in my hand
Turn around
(Turn around)
Look at me
(Look at me)
Understand, understand

That there's someone who'll stand beside you
Turn around, look at me
And there's someone to love and guide you
Turn around, look at me

Oh, I've waited, but I'll wait forever
For you to come to me
Look at someone
(Look at someone)
Who really loves you
(Yeah, really loves you)
Turn around, look at me

Kentucky Means Paradise lyrics - Glen Campbell

You take a K and a E N and a T U and a C K Y
And that spells KENTUCKY and it means paradise
You take a chicken and you kill it and you put it in the skillet
And you fry up a golden brown
That's southern cookin' and that's mighty nice
It don't cover lot when you look on a map
But I once studied geography when I sat in my mama's lap
You take a K and a E N and a T U and a C K Y
And that spells KENTUCKY and it means paradise

[Dobro]

It don't cover lot...

[Banjo]

It don't cover lot...
I said Kentucky and it means paradise

Too Late To Worry, Too Blue To Cry lyrics - Glen Campbell

I broke your heart dear I was untrue and now I've lost you what can I do
I hope you're happy baby for I'll get by too late to worry too blue to cry
Our love has ended you say we're through you found a new love that's all good to you
I'll always love you as days go by
It's too late to worry worry worry I'm too late to cry oh yeah

Universal Soldier lyrics - Glen Campbell

He's five foot two and he's six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of thirty-one
And he's only seventeen
He's been a soldier for a thousand years

He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
He knows he shouldn't kill
But he knows he always will
Kill you, my friend, for me and me for you

He's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France
He's fighting for the U.S.A.
He's fighting for the Russians
And he's fighting for Japan
And he thinks, he'll put an end to war that way

He's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the Reds
He says it's for the peace of all
He's the one who must decide
Who's to live and who's to die
But he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him how would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He's the one who gives his body
As the weapon of the war
And without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him and you, and me
And brother, can't you see?

Guess I'm Dumb lyrics - glen Campbell

The way I act don't seem like me
I'm not on top like I used to be
I'll give in when I know I should be strong
I still give in even though I know it's wrong, know it's wrong
I guess I'm dumb but I don't care

And breaking off wasn't hard to do
But I couldn't stay away from you
I feel love but not the way I did before
This time, girl, has got to be forever more, ever more
I guess I'm dumb but I don't care

And baby since we've been apart
Maybe I've found I had a heart
I couldn't let go even if I wanted to
You must know baby now it's only you, only you
I guess I'm dumb but I don't care

Burning Bridges lyrics - Glen Campbell

Found some letters you wrote me this morning they told of a love we once knew
Now they're gone I'd burned them to ashes
Don't want nothing to remind me of you
Burning bridges behind me it's too late to turn back now
Burning bridges behind me all I want is to forget you somehow

Sold the house we once planned together said goodbye to friends we knew
Then I moved to a faraway city trying hard to forget about you
Burning bridges behind me...

Just To Satisfy You lyrics - Glen Campbell

Someone's gonna get hurt before you're through
Someone's gonna pay for the things you do
How many hearts will break how many will it take
Just to satisfy you just to satisfy you
Another love another fool to play your game
Another love another fool they're all the same
Someone's gonna get hurt before you're through
Now don't be surprised if that someone is you
You're gonna find when it's too late a heart that just won't break
Just to satisfy you just to satisfy you

You're gonna find when it's too late a heart that just won't break
Just to satisfy you oh just to satisfy you
What does it take to satisfy you just to satisfy you

Less Of Me lyrics - Glen Campbell

Let me be a little kinder let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me let me praise a little more
Let me be when I am weary just a little bit more cheery
Think a little more of others and a little less of me mhmm mhmm

Let me be a little braver when temptation bits me waver
Let me strive a little harder to be all that I should be
Let me be a little meeker with the brother that is weaker
Let me think more of my neighbor and a little less of me mhmm mhmm

Let me be when I am weary just a little bit more cheery
Let me serve a little better those that I am striving for
Let me be a little meeker with the brother that is weaker
Think a little more of others and a little less of me mhmm mhmm

Gentle On My Mind lyrics - Glen Campbell

It's knowing that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that are dried upon some line
That keeps you in the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said
Because they thought we fit together walking
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'Cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the backroads
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin'
Cracklin' caldron in some train yard
My beard a rustling, cold towel, and
A dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round the tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waiting from the backroads
By the rivers of my memories
Ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind

Crying lyrics - glen Campbell

I was all right for a while I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night you held my hand so tight as you stopped to say hello
Oh you wished me well you couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you crying over you
Since you said so long left me standing all alone alone and crying crying crying crying
It's hard to understand that the touch of your hand can start me crying
I thought that I was over you but it's true so true
I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do for you
No don't love me and I'll always be
Crying over you crying over you yes now you're gone but from this moment on
I'll be crying crying oh crying crying yeah crying crying over you

I Say A Little Prayer / By The Time I Get To Phoenix lyrics - Glen Campbell

By the time I get to Phoenix
She'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hanging on her door
She'll laugh, when she reads the part that says I'm leaving
Cause I've left that girl, so many times before

By the time I make Albuquerque
She'll be working
She'll probably stop at lunch,
And give me a call
But she'll just hear that phone keep on ringing
Off the wall, that's all

By the time I make Oklahoma
She'll be sleeping
She'll turn softly and call my name out low
And she'll cry, just to think, I'd really leave her
Though time and time I've tried to tell her so
She just didn't know,
I would really go

Tomorrow Never Comes lyrics - Glen Campbell

Oh you tell me that you love me yes you tell me that you care
That tomorrow we'll be married but tomorrow's never there
Many weeks have I waited many many long nights have I cried
Just to see that happy morning happy morning when I'd have you right by my side
But tomorrow it never never comes no no no tomorrow ain't never ever gonna come
Now you tell me you tell me you love me can you say that you want me
But tomorrow never comes

Hey, Little One lyrics - Glen Campbell

Hey little one so far from home and so alone
Hey little one I'm just like you I'm lonely too
The road of life is a long long road when you walk alone
Then I found you I found a love a love I've never known a love I've never known
Hey hey hey hey little one don't go away tell me you'll stay
Hey hey hey hey little one I'm just like you I'm so lonely too

I Wanna Live lyrics - Glen Campbell

Flowers have blooms the ocean has waves the sky has clouds people have babes
I wanna live till I get old I wanna watch all of this grow
I wanna live live and let live I want all the love this life has to give
I wanna smile and be friendly with you I wanna live and let you live some too

Rover is big Tabby is small Betty is short Jimmy is tall
They wanna live live and let live they want all the love this life has to give
They wanna smile and be friendly with you they wanna live and let you live some too
We wanna live what want you

The Legend Of Bonnie And Clyde lyrics - Glen Campbell

Bonnie was a waitress in a small cafe
Clyde Barrow was the rounder that took her away
They both robbed and killed until both loved and died
So goes the legend of Bonnie and Clyde
The poem that she wrote of the life that they led
Told of the lawmen left dying or dead
Some say that Clyde made her life a shame
But the legend made Bonnie the head of the game
The rampage grew wilder with each passing day
Their odds growing smaller with each get-away
The end getting closer the harder they fought
With blood on their hands they were bound to get caught

They drove back from town on one bright summer day
When a man they be-friended stepped out in the way
With no thought of dying they both took his side
But the death lay there waiting for Bonnie and Clyde
Now two years of running was ended that day
For robbing and killing they both had to pay
We'll always remember how they lived and died
So goes the legend of Bonnie and Clyde Bonnie and Clyde Bonnie and Clyde

Let It Be Me lyrics - Glen Campbell

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me

Each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet, sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me

Each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet, sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me

Now and forever
Let it be me

Scarborough Fair / Canticle lyrics - Glen campbell

Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
(On the side of a hill in the deep forest green)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
(Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground)
Without no seams nor needlework,
(Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.
(Sleeps unaware of the clarion call)

Tell her to find me an acre of land:
(On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves)
Parsely, sage, rosemary and thyme;
(Washes the grave with so many tears)
Between the salt water and the sea strand,
(A soldier cleans and polishes a gun)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather:
(War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions)
Parsely, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Generals order their soldiers to kill)
And gather it all in a bunch of heather,
(And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Wichita Lineman lyrics - Glen Campbell

I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire, I can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation but it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

[Instrumental Interlude]

And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

[Instrumental to end]

Dreams Of The Everyday Housewife lyrics - Glen Campbell

She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles that weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that she almost married
What would he think if he saw her this way
She picks up her apron in little girl fashion as something comes into her mind
Then slowly starts dancing remembering her girlhood
And all of the boys she had waiting in line
Ah such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere anytime of the day
And everyday housewife who gave up the good time for me

The photograph album she takes from the closet and slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
The first one he gave her now withered with age
She closes her eyes and touches the housedress that suddenly disappears
And just for a moment she's wearing the gown
That broke all their minds back so many years
Ah such are the dreams...
Ah such are the dreams...
Ah such are the dreams...

Reason To Believe lyrics - Glen Campbell

If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way
To believe that its all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I look to find a reason to believe

If I gave you time to change my mind
I'd find a way
And I'd leave the past behind
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I look to find a reason to believe

Someone like you
Makes it hard to live without
Somebody else
Someone like you
Makes it easy to give
Never thinkin' of myself

If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way
To believe that its all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried
Still I looked to find a reason to belie-ie-ieve
In you...

Galveston lyrics - Glen Campbell

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

I still see her standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there for me?
On the beach where we used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston

[Instrumental to end]

Where's The Playground Susie? lyrics - Glen Campbell

The end has come and found us here
With our toys scattered all around us here
The puzzle that we never found an answer for
Still asks us, darlin', just what all the games were for
And here we stand in a box of sand
Where's the playground Susie?
You're the one who's supposed to know her way around
Where's the playground Susie
If I don't stay around?
If I don't stay around?

The carousel has stopped us here
It twirled a time or two and then it dropped us here
And still you're not content with something about me
But what merry-go-round can you ride without me
To take your hand?
How would you stand?

Where's the playground Susie
If I decide to let you go and play around?
Where's the playground Susie
If I don't stay around?
If I don't stay around?

Where's the playground Susie?
You're the one who's supposed to know her way around
Where's the playground Susie
If I decide to let you go and play around?

If This Is Love lyrics - Glen Campbell

The palpitating beast that beats within my battered breast
Burning and bedevilling, not allowing any rest
The thunder in my mind reflects the storm within my heart
A blasting, blaring sound that tears my soul apart

If this is love... who needs it?

There's a tender, tempting feeling that is growing in my mind
Soothing and caressing a part of me that's blind
A warming worm that's mellowing and eating my resolve
Changing and challenging my cold heart to dissolve

If this is love... I want it!

Now a flaming, flaring fire I feel has trapped me in it's trance
Flashing and flickering and forcing me to dance
I'm raised by its pure energy, aborning me anew
Blinding but enlightening, I know the fire is you

If this is love... I need it
If this is love... I want it
If this is what love is like... oh yes, I need it
Oh if this is what love is like, I wanna have a taste of it

True Grit lyrics - Glen campbell

One day, little girl, the sadness will leave your face
As soon as you've won the fight to get justice done
Someday little girl you'll wonder what life's about
But other's have known few battles are won alone
So, you'll look around to find
Someone who's kind, someone who is fearless like you
The pain of it will ease a bit
When you find a man with true grit

One day you will rise and you won't believe your eyes
You'll wake up and see
A world that is fine and free
Though summer seems far away
You will find the sun one day

Try A Little Kindness lyrics - Glen campbell

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say you're goin' the wrong way
You've got to try a little kindness yes show a little kindness
Yes shine your light for everyone to see
And if you'll try a little kindness and you'll overlook the blindness
Of the narrow minded people on the narrow minded streets

Don't walk around the down and out lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day will help someone along their way
You've got to try a little kindness...
You've got to try a little kindness...

Honey Come Back lyrics - Glen Campbell

Well honey I know I've said it many times before I said I'd never say it again
I guess I shouldn't say anything at all since you're supposed to belong to him
But I just can't let you go but I'm tellin' you just how much I love you
So that is why I'm gonna say it one more time
Honey come back I just can't stand each lonely day's a little bit longer
And the last time I held you seems like a hundred years ago
Back to his arms and never know the joy of love that used to taste like
Honey come back where you belong to only me

Well I guess that's about all I gotta say
So I'm just gonna pack my bags and I'm gonna walk
I know those bright lights're callin' you honey big fine cars and fancy clothes
But if you ever want someone to just love you and some day you just may
Just give me a call you know where I am and here's what I'll say
Honey come back...
Honey come back where you belong to only me
Honey come back where you belong to only me

One Pair Of Hands lyrics - Glen Campbell

One pair of hands built the mountains one pair of hands formed the sea
And one pair of hands made the sun and the moon every bird every flower every tree
One pair of hands formed the valleys the ocean the rivers and the sand
His hands are so strong so when life goes wrong
Put your faith in the one pair of hands
One pair of hands built the mountains...

All I Have To Do Is Dream lyrics - Glen campbell

Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you
All I have to do is dream
Dream, dream, dream

When I want you in the night
When I want you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you
All I have to do is dream

I can make you mine
Taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreaming my life away

I need you so and that is why
I love you so, don't say goodbye
Whenever I want you
All I have to dream

I can make you mine
Taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreaming my life away

I need you so and that is why
I love you so, don't say goodbye
Whenever I want you
All I have to dream

Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream

It's Only Make Believe lyrics - Glen campbell

People see us everywhere
They think you really care
But myself I can't deceive
I know it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you

No one will ever know
How much I love you so
My only prayer will be
Someday you'll care for me
But it's only make believe

My hopes, my dreams come true
My life, I'd give for you
My heart, a wedding ring
My all, my everything

My heart, I can't control
You rule my very soul
My plans, my hopes, my schemes
Girl, you are my every dream
But it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Girl, is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
You're my one and only you

And no one will ever know
Just how much I love you so
And my only prayer will be
That someday you'll care for me
But it's only make believe
It's make believe

Pave Your Way Into Tomorrow lyrics - Glen Campbell

Living for today is part of living for tomorrow
For tomorrow's something we all have to find
It's blanket black at midnight
So your faith must be your night-light
To erase the fear of darkness from your mind
You have to pave your way into tomorrow
You've got to live and let your brother live as well
You've got to pave your way into tomorrow
And let your love of living cast it's spell

Gentle raindrops, falling people streams that keep on growing
Till they build a raging river deep and wide
Life's just a big river and if each man is a giver
We might help to make the ocean satisfied
You've got to pave your way into tomorrow…
You've got to live and let your brother live as well
You've got to pave your way into tomorrow
And let your love of living cast it's spell
And let your love of living cast it's spell

MacArthur Park lyrics - Glen campbell

Spring was never waiting for us girl it ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance
'Tween the parted pages and were pressed
In love's hot fevered iron like a stripped pair of pants
I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave on the ground around your knees
And birds like tender babies in your hands
And the old man playing checkers by the trees
Mac Arturh Park is melting in the dark all the sweet green ising flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never had that recipe again oh no

There will be another songs for me for I will sing it
There will be another dream for me someone will bring it
I'll drink the wine while it is warm and never let you catch me looking in the sun
But after all the loves of my life after all the loves of my life you'll still be the one
I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passions flow like rivers through the sky
But after all the loves of my life oh after all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you and wondering why
Mac Arturh Park is melting...

Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream) lyrics - Glen Campbell

Sweet dream baby

The Last Time I Saw Her lyrics - Glen Campbell

The last time I saw her face her eyes were bathed in starlight and her hair hung long
The last time she spoke to me
Her lips were like the scented flowers inside a rain-drenched forest
But that was so long ago that I can scarcely feel the way I felt before
And if time could heal the wounds
I would tear the threads away that I might bleed some more
The last time I walked with her her laughter was the steeple bells
That ring to greet the morning sun a voice that called to everyone
To love the ground we walked upon those were good days

[Strings]

The last time I held her hand her touch was autumn spring and summer and winter too
The last time I let go of her she walked a way into the night
I lost her in the misty streets a thousand months a thousand years
When other lips will kiss her eyes a million miles beyond the moon that's where she is
The last time I saw her face her eyes were bathed in starlight and she walked alone
The last time she kissed my cheek her lips were like the wilted leaves
Upon the autumn covered hills resting on the frozen ground
The seeds of love lie cold and still beneath a battered marking stone it lies forgotten

I Say A Little Prayer / By The Time I Get To Phoenix lyrics - Glen Campbell

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
(By the time I get to Phoenix
She'll be rising)

I say a little prayer for you
(She'll find the note
I left hanging on her door)

While combing my hair now
(She'll laugh when she reads
The part that says I'm leaving)
And wondering what dress to wear now
I say a little prayer for you
(Cause I've left that girl
So many times before)

Forever and forever
(By the time I make Albuquerque
She'll be working)
You'll stay in my heart
And I will love you

Forever and ever
(She'll probably stop at lunch
And give me a call)
We never will part
And how I love you

Together, together
(But she'll just hear that
Phone keep on ringing)
That's how it must be
To live without you would
(Off the wall)
Only mean heartbreak for me
(That's all)

I run for the bus, dear
While riding, I think of us, dear
(By the time I make Oklahoma
She'll be sleeping)
I say a little prayer for you
(She'll turn softly and
Call my name out low)

At work I just take time
(And she'll cry just to feel)
And all through my coffee break-time
(I'd really leave her)

I say a little prayer for you
(Though time and time
I've tried to tell her so)

I say a little prayer for you
(She just didn't know
I would really go)

No, she didn't know I'd go

The Last Thing On My Mind lyrics - Glen Campbell

It's a lesson too late for the learning
Made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin'
In your hand, in your hand
Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

As we walk along my thoughts are tumblin'
Round and round, round and round
Underneath our feet are someplace rumblin'
Underground, underground

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

I've got reasons a plenty for goin'
This I know, this I know
The weeds have been steadily growin'
Please don't go, please don't go

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

I Knew Jesus (Before He Was A Star) lyrics - Glen Campbell

Well funny it seems as how everyone knows him now
Suddenly they have found someone who's been around
Back to the fold they come seeking his wisdom from a far
I knew Jesus before he was a superstar
Well you know I'm a believer in all that he's ever been
Stories I've read of him things that were said of him
Songs that they glorify I used to play on my guitar yes I did
I knew Jesus before he was a superstar
I've known his goodness and mercy for all my days
I've seen his blessings around me in every way
In times of trouble when I had no hope in view
Who brought the sunlight the one light that I knew
Oh yes I knew he was always there answering every prayer
Fame will not change him much he won't be out of touch
Great as he is today big people stay the way they are yes they do
I knew Jesus before he was a superstar
I've known his goodness...
I knew Jesus before he was a superstar
I knew Jesus before he was a superstar

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry lyrics - Glen campbell

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill he sounds too blue to fly
That midnight train is whining low I'm so lonesome I could cry
Did you ever see a night so long when time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind a cloud to hide its face and cry
Did you ever see a robin weep when leaves began to die
It means he's lost the will to live I'm so lonesome I could cry
The silence of a falling star lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are I'm so lonesome I could cry

Houston (I'm Comin' To See You) lyrics - Glen campbell

Home is where I'm goin'
No matter how long it takes
And I've been livin' high 'n' free, love
It's time for me to try another way

I think I'll send her a postcard
So she can meet my plane
Well I don't know what I'll say to her
I've caused her so much pain

Houston, I'm-a comin' to see you
Houston, has it really been that lo-hong
I know I've been away
But I'm just callin' to tell you I'm leavin' today-hay-ay-hay-ay

Sittin' here in San Francisco
Lord I'm tryin' to get more pay
You know it's good to hear your voice again
You say the words I like to hear you say

Now I'm tryin' to read your letter
It's been almost a year
It did me good to get away from you
Now I'm wishin' you were here

Houston, I'm-a comin' to see you
Houston, has it really been that lo-hong
I know I've been away
But I'm just callin' to tell you I'm leavin' today-hay-ay

Houston, I'm-a comin' to see you
Houston, has it really been that lo-hong
Houston, Houston, Houston (Yeah, I'm a comin' to see you)
Houston, has it really been that lo-ho-ho-ong
Houston, Houston, Houston
(Yeah, I'm a comin' to see you), Houston [Fade]

Bonaparte's Retreat lyrics - Glen campbell

Met the girl I-I love in a town way down in Dixie
Beneath the stars up above
She was the sweetest girl I ever did see

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the guitars played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Guitar....

All the world wa-as bright as I held her on that night
And I heard her-er say
Please don't you go away

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the bagpipe played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Bagpipe...

Well I met the girl I-I love in a town way down in Dixie
Beneath the stars up above
She was the sweetest girl I ever did see

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Fiddle...

All the world wa-as bright as I held her on that night
And I heard her-er say
Please don't you go away

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while everybody played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Everybody...

Yes I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while everybody's playin'
The Bonaparte's Retreat

Yes I held her in my arms, I told her of her many charms, and I
Kissed her while everybody's playin' [Fade]

The Moon's A Harsh Mistress lyrics - Glen campbell

See her how she flies
Golden sails across the sky
Close enough to touch
But careful if you try
Though she looks as warm as gold
The moon's a harsh mistress
The moon can be so cold

Once the sun did shine
Lord, it felt so fine
The moon a phantom rose
Through the mountains and the pines
And then the darkness fell
And the moon's a harsh mistress
It's so hard to love her well

I fell out of her eyes
I fell out of her heart
I fell down on my face
Yes, I did, and I - I tripped and I missed my star
God, I fell and I fell alone, I fell alone
And the moon's a harsh mistress
And the sky is made of stone

The moon's a harsh mistress
She's hard to call your own.

Rhinestone Cowboy lyrics - Glen Campbell

I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're ridin' the train
That's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
There'll be a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' card and letters from people I don't even know....

Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In L.A.) lyrics - Glen Campbell

Livin' in the city
Ain't never been my idea of gettin' it on
But the job demands that you make new plans
Before your big chance is gone

You get a house in the hills
You're payin' everyone's bills
And they tell you that you're gonna go far
But in the back of my mind
I hear it time after time
"Is that who you really are"

Country boy, you got your feet in LA
But your mind's on Tennessee
Lookin' back, I can remember the time
When I sang my songs for free
Country boy, you got your feet in LA
Take a look at everything you own
But now and then, my heart keeps goin' home

Talkin' on the telephone
Settin' up another day of people to meet
You've gotta do what's right
You've gotta spend the night
Stayin' in touch with the street
When you're surrounded by friends
They say the fun never ends
But I guess I'll never figure it out
'Cause in the back of my mind
I hear it time after time
"Is this what it's all about"

Country boy, you got your feet in LA
But your mind's on Tennessee
Lookin' back, I can remember the time
When I sang my songs for free
Country boy, you got your feet in LA
Take a look at everything you own
But now and then, my heart keeps goin' home [2x]

Arkansas lyrics - Glen Campbell

Arkansas, land of opportunity
Arkansas, oh, what you do to me
Prettiest place I ever saw
Was back home in Arkansas

All those boyhood memories
Lakes and rivers and Backwood trees
Gentle mountains, it reached to the sky
Oh, how I hated to say goodbye to

Arkansas, land of opportunity
Arkansas, oh, what you do to me
Prettiest place I ever saw
Was back home in Arkansas

Dirt roads that lead nowhere
Except the houses that need repairing
And front porch people wearing a smile
And they cover every mile of

Arkansas, land of opportunity
Arkansas, oh, what you do to me
Prettiest place I ever saw
Was back home in Arkansas

I can see my Dad back home
Working Park County, sandy lawn
Mama callin' me from the door
Oh, how I wanna go once more to

Arkansas, land of opportunity
Arkansas, oh, what you do to me
Prettiest place I ever saw
Was back home in Arkansas

Arkansas, land of opportunity
Arkansas, oh, what you do to me
Prettiest place I ever saw
Was back home in Arkansas

Don't Pull Your Love / Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye lyrics - Glen Campbell

[Don't Pull Your Love]

[Chorus:]
Don't pull your love out on me baby
If you do, I think that maybe I'll just lay
Me down and cry for a hundred years
Don't pull your love out on me, honey
Take my heart, my soul, my money
But don't leave me here to drown in my own tears

You say you're gonna leave
Gonna take that big white bird
Gonna fly right out of here without a single word
But you know you'll break my heart
When I watch you close that door
'Cause I know I won't see you any more

[Chorus]

Haven't I been good to you
What about that brand new ring
Doesn't that mean love to you
Doesn't that mean anything
If I throw away my pride and I got down on my knees
Would you make me beg you pretty please

[Chorus]

There's so much I want to do
I've got love enough for two
I'll never use it girl If I don't have you

[Chorus]

[Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye]

Kiss me each morning for a million years
Hold me each evening by your side
Tell me you love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss
Soften my dreams with your sigh
After you've loved me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

If you must go I won't grieve
If you just wait a life time before you leave
If you must go, I won't say "no"
Just so we can say that we tried
Tell me you love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Southern Nights lyrics - Glen Campbell

Southern nights
Have you ever felt a southern night
Free as a breeze
Not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so
Southern nights
Just as good even when closed your eyes
I apologize
To any one who can truly say
That he's found a better way

Southern skies
Have you ever noticed
Southersn skies
It's precious beauty
Lies just beyone the eye
It goes running through the soul
Like the stories told of old

Old man
He and his dog that walk the old land
Every flower touched his cold hand
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows would cry for joy

Joy

Feels so good
Feels so good it's frightening
Wish I could
Stop this world from fighting
La-da-da-da-da, da-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da

Mystery
Like this and many others
In the trees
Blow in the night
In the southern skies

Southern nights
They feel so good it's frightening
Wish I could
Stop this world from fighting
La-da-da-da-da, da-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da

Sunflower lyrics - Glen Campbell

Sunflower, good morning
You sure do make it like a sunny day
Sunflower, fair warning
I'm gonna love you if you come my way

Now, if there's a chance that romance can find you
Better not find you looking the other way
Now, isn't it time you finally take it
Make it so real it steals your breath away
Hey hey hey

Sunflower, good morning
You sure do make it like a sunny time
Sun morning, good morning
And someday, child, I'm gonna make you mine

Well, if there's a chance that romance will find you
Better not find you looking the other way
Isn't it time you finally take it
Make it so good it steals your breath away
Hey hey hey

Sunflower, good morning
You sure do make it like a sunny time
Sunflower, sweet morning
For every time I'm gonna make you mine

God Only Knows lyrics - Glen campbell

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it
God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Life would still go on, believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me?
And God only knows what I'd be without you

And God only knows what I'd be without you
If you should ever leave me
Life would still go on, believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me?
God only knows what I'd be without you

God only knows what I'd be without you
[repeat to fade]

I'm Gonna Love You lyrics - Glen Campbell

I know you've been in love before
I know it some times seems like war
But i just want to show you there's no use
To hold up those scars anymore

Cuz honey I'm gonna love you and
I'm gonna take care of you
And I'm gonna love you all our lives
You will be needed
All your words of wisdom headed
And I'm gonna love you all our lives

They say it's pretty in the snow
Maybe we'll find out if its so
We can take a photograph and write underneath
The places we wanted to go

Can You Fool lyrics - Glen Campbell

Well you can take all of the money that you made and put it in the jar
Drag out a map that will show you, is Heaven very far?
You take all of the medicine you need 'til ya find out who you are
Maybe you can figure why that woman wanna be so cruel
But ya, ya just can't forget her, can you fool?

Well those winter nights and the city lights and the crying of the train
Everyday is a shade of gray, every memory's a fade
And then ya finally use the sense God gave ya to come out of the rain
Still you can't figure why that man is got to be so cruel
But ya just can't forget him, can you fool?

Oh, love is long and love is hard
Love brings lots of pain
She was here, now she's gone
Lord, bring her back again

Well you can take all of the money that you made and put it in the jar
Drag out a map that will show you, is Heaven very far?
And you can take all of the medicine you need 'til ya find out who you are
Still you can't figure why that man he got to be so cruel
But ya just can't forget him, can you fool?
No, you just can't forget her, can you fool?
Aww, can you fool?

Highwayman lyrics - Glen Campbell

I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride
With the sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his life blood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of '25
But I am still alive

I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner 'round the horn of Mexico
I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they say that I got killed
But I am living still, perhaps I'll always, I don't know

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around, seems like it all goes 'round and 'round and 'round
And 'round and 'round yes it goes when here we go

I'll fly a starship across the universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain and I'll be back again
Yes, I will when here we go but I'll be back again
Yes, I will when here we go but I'll be back again

Somethin' 'Bout You Baby I Like lyrics - Glen Campbell

I see you every day
Walking down the avenue
I'd like to get to know you
But all I do is smile at you

Oh, baby
When it comes to talking
My tongue gets so tight
This sidewalk love affair
Has got me high as a kite

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Well, I'm a slow walker
But, girl, I'd race a mile for you
Just to get there in time
For my peek-a-boo rendezvous
Well, maybe it's the way you
Wear you're blue jeans so tight
I can't put my finger on
What you're doing right

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Well, I'm standing on a corner
Smiling by a telephone
I'd just love to check you over
Get to know you like
A fine tooth comb

Oh, now when I go home
I turn out the light
And you come strolling through
My dreams every night

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Yeah, yeah, there's something
Bout you, baby, I like

Any Which Way You Can lyrics - Glen Campbell

It's hard for a back street affair to be easy
For each hour of happiness there's two hours of pain
We meet in the shadows because all that matters
Spending the night with you once again.
You leave with a promise you'll call me tomorrow
But I never know when the next time will be
And each time you leave me I can't help but wonder
For tonight the last night for me- for me

[Chorus:]
Any which way you can
Just love me any which way you can
My loves not the choking kind
You've got your life and I've got mine
So if you can ever be free
Darling I'll understand
But when you're laying next to me
Just love me any which way you can

Now you're on your way home
And I'm all alone
I'm feeling? (Cant make that line out!)
It's so hard to be strong
When I know I belong in -your arms- but I'm lying here lonely instead

[Chorus]

I Was Too Busy Loving You lyrics - Glen Campbell

When was the time
You first thought of leaving
And hid it away in back of your smile
And then slowly
Surely we came apart
Seconds to inches
Minutes to miles

And it was so easy
I was too blind
To notice what everyone else could see
I was too busy
Loving you
To see you
Slipping away from me

When do we lose
The things that we cherish
We blindly believe
The world's on our side
And from the very first time
I took it for granted
I'd already lost you
You'd already lied to me girl

It was so easy
I was too blind
To notice
What everyone else could see
I was too busy
Loving you
To see you
Slipping away

Couldn't see you
Slipping away
From me

Faithless Love lyrics - Glen Campbell

Faithless love like a river flows
Like raindrops falling on a lonesome road
Down in some valley where nobody goes

And the night rolls in it's like a cold dark friend
Faithless love like a river flows

Faithless love, where did I go wrong?
Was it telling stories in a heartbreak song?
Where nobody's right, nobody was wrong

Faithless love has found me
Wrapped its chilly arms around me
Faithless love, where did I go wrong?

Well, I guess I'm standing in the hall of broken dreams
That's the way it sometimes goes
And every new love never turns out like it seems
I guess the feeling comes and goes

Faithless love like a river flows
Like raindrops falling on a lonesome road
Down in some valley where nobody goes

Faithless love has found me
Wrapped its chilly arms
Faithless love like a river flows

A Lady Like You lyrics - Glen Campbell

Here I am
Just an ordinary man
And my virtues are few
And I'm amazed
Every morning when I wake
With a lady like you

You're all the good things God put on this earth
And you're so much more than I deserve
And what did I ever do to win a lady like you

Look at me
I'm as common as can be
But do you make me shine
And look at you
You're a lady through and through,
So gracious and kind

And when you sleep, it's always by my side
I look at you and I'm mystified
And what did I ever do to win a lady like you

Heaven knows I'm less than perfect
And I have found the very best
But it's a mystery how someone like me
Was chosen to be blessed with a lady like you

[Musical break with guitar picking]

You're all the good things God put on this earth
And you're so much more than I deserve
And what did I ever do to win a lady like you
A lady like you

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle lyrics - Glen Campbell

He got here red and wrinkled scared and cryin'
Then she took him up and held him to her breast
And he sure was glad to get what mama offered
Then he went to sleep and put his fears to rest

It didn't seem to matter what he needed
He could always count on mama to supply
And regardless of the sleep she might be losin'
He always found a twinkle in her eye

There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

She taught him all the attributes of greatness
That she knew he couldn't learn away from home
And by the time she wore the cover off her bible
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone

There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world
Yes, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

I Have You lyrics - Glen campbell

Sailors have the seven seas and four strong winds that blow
Drifters have the next town down the road.
Gamblers have the chance to bet the ace that's in the hole
Soldiers have the hope of coming home.
And the flowers have the early April rain,
Believers have what they have never seen,
And the dreamers have tomorrow if today does not come true.
You have eyes that shine, and I have you.
Heroes have their names engraved forever in a stone,
Hermits have their peace of mind alone.
Lovers have each other and a small slice of the moon.
God still bless the child who has his own.
And the flowers have the early April rain,
Believers have what they have never seen,
And the dreamers have tomorrow if today does not come true.
You have eyes that shine, and I have you.
The flowers have the early April rain,
Believers have what they have never seen
And the dreamers have tomorrow if today does not come true.
You have eyes that shine, and I have you.

If These Walls Could Speak lyrics - Glen Campbell

If these old walls, if these old walls could speak
What a tale they'd have to tell, hard headed people raisin' hell
A couple in love livin' week to week
Rooms full of laughter, if these old walls could speak

If these old hallowed halls, if hallowed halls could talk
These would have a tale to tell, the sun goin' down and dinner bells
And children playin' at hide and seek
From floor to rafters, if these old walls could speak

They would tell you that I'm sorry bein', cold and blind and weak
They would tell you that it's only that I have a stubborn streak
If these old walls could speak

If these old fashion window panes had eyes
I guess they would have seen it all, each little tear and silence step fall
And every dream that we came to seek
And further after, if these old walls could speak

They would tell you that I owe you, more that I could ever pay
Here's someone who really loves you, don't ever go away
That's what these walls would say

Unconditional Love lyrics - Glen Campbell

Here's to the people who gave me life
And then showed me how to live it
And taught me that you measure love
By how freely you can give it

And the gift I give to you
Is the lesson that I learned
That when a love is true
It has nothing in return

Unconditional love, that they gave to me
It wasn't mine to keep and I knew someday
I'd hand it down to you and hope that I can be
The one who makes you see
The importance of unconditional love

And there were times I know I let them down
But never once was I rejected
And when I stood alone to face this world
Somehow I still felt protected

That's the common bond we share
And it will last through the years
And you can trust that I'll be there
Through the good times and the tears

Unconditional love, like they gave to me
It's not yours to keep and I know someday
Someone will look to you and you will have to be
The one who makes him see
The importance of unconditional love

She's Gone, Gone, Gone lyrics - Glen Campbell

She said if I ever deceive her
She'd be gone before I could count ten,
I guess that I didn't believe her;
Oh just look at the trouble I'm in.

[Chorus:]
Now she's gone, gone, gone,
Gone, gone, gone, cryin' won't bring her back;
The more that I cry, the faster that plane flies
Father across the sky.

Well I lost every right to be happy,
Well I lost all the Heaven I found;
She warned me she'd leave and she left me,
Before my first tear hit the ground.

[Chorus]...

If I only knew where I could find her
Well I'd crawl there on my hands and knees.
'Cause each tick of the clock will remind her
That she's one second farther from me.

[Chorus]...

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]...

Farther across the sky.

Show Me Your Way lyrics - Glen campbell

When I find myself in sadness
And fear of all to which I drift
I climb the stairs of gladness
And face the light of God instead

As I wander through the darkness
I search for all that's truth and bright
To walk the pads of glory
And see the lamp of Gods tonight

Show me Your way, oh Lord
And let me sing all praise to Thee
Take my heart and hear my prayer
I need Your love to show me

As I feel the world awakin'
The wonder of Your gentle hand
Will touch all hearts, arisin'
And change the empty course of man

Show me Your way, oh Lord
And let me sing all praise to Thee
Take my heart and hear my prayer
I need Your love to show me

I was livin' for fame and passion
All my feelings have slipped away
As I longed for another passion
To lead me to this place today

Show me Your way, oh Lord
And let me sing all praise to Thee
Take my heart and hear my prayer
I need Your love to show me
I need Your love to show me

Only One Life lyrics - glen campbell

Only one life
Just a tiny spark
But now that he is gone
I am somewhere in the dark

If there are ten million men
On this planet, tell me then
How could only one life
Leave such a mark on me?

One life, how could I have known?
One life could be such a part of me
As precious as my own
Only one life

Only one life, what does it mean?
It's only birth and death
And everything between

If livin' is a pointless truth
Just existence, nothing more
Why does only one life
Leave such an empty space?

One life, make it right or wrong
One life, take the love I can't replace
That always will be known to only one life

Just another sore monsoon here
So who cares if one should fall?
There were small world full of magic when he
Touched the wall, we change it all
With only one life

We only have once chance to find
But if we live it right
All we need is one life to make a difference here
One life, it's such a small amount

One life to say we care to make it clear
We have to make it count, once and for all
With only one life
Only one life

Somebody Like That lyrics - Glen campbell

Well he can't be more than seventy
She's not a day over sixty-five
But they'd returned to a plane in forty-three
And their fire's still burning bright

They'll be found holdin' hands at the picture show
Lookin' just like Juliet and Romeo
The sad song won't steal the beat away
They got a special kind of love that's here to stay

See the romance on the port of sea
Auburn hair grew a silver linin'
There's something in their eyes
You just don't see these days

I wanna love somebody like that, I wanna hold on forever-er
Two heart's become one with a love like that
I wanna love somebody like that
I wanna love somebody, yeah-eah-eah

I was head over heels in junior high
And it lasted a week or two
When my heart was destroyed I cried and cried
'Til I found me somebody new

Life without a real love is tragedy
That's why I'm gonna find a love that's right for me
I've gotta look beyond what my eyes can see
Until my dreams are reality

There's gotta be more to fallin' in love
Than fallin' away when the stayin' gets tough
I want my love to be young when I'm old and grey

I wanna love somebody like that, I wanna hold on forever
Two heart's become one with a love like that
I wanna love somebody like that
I wanna love somebody, yeah-eah-eah

I wanna love somebody like that, I wanna hold on forever-er
Two heart's become one with a love like that
I wanna love somebody like that
I wanna love somebody
I wanna love somebody like that

The Impossible Dream lyrics - Glen campbell

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love, pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell
For the heavenly cause

And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To fight the unbeatable foe
To reach the unreachable star

The Lord's Prayer lyrics - Glen Campbell

Our Father, Who Art in Heaven
Hallowed be, Thy Name
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be Done
On earth, as it is, in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever
Amen

Didn't We lyrics - Glen Campbell

This time we almost made the pieces fit
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made some sense of it
Didn't We, girl?
This time I had the answer right here in my hand,
Then I touched it and it had turned to sand,
This time we almost sang our song in tune
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made it to the moon oh,
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made our poem rhyme,
This time we almost made that long hard climb,
Didn't We almost make it this time?

This time we almost made the pieces fit
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made some sense of it
Didn't We, girl?
This time I had the answer right here in my hand,
Then I touched it and it had turned to sand,
This time we almost sang our song in tune
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made it to the moon oh,
Didn't We, girl?
This time we almost made our poem rhyme,
This time we almost made that long hard climb,
Didn't We almost make it this time?

My Way lyrics - Glen Campbell

And now the end is near and so I face the final curtain
My friend I'll say it clear I'll state my case of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full I traveled each and every highway
And more much more than this I did it my way
Regrets I've had a few but then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each chartered course each careful step along the byway
And more much more than this I did it my way
Yes there were times I'm sure you knew when I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way
I've lived I've laughed and cried I've had my fill my share of losing
And now as tears subside I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that and may I say not in a shy way
Oh no oh no not me I did it my way
For what is a man what has he got if not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels and not the worlds of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way yes it was my way

Try To Remember / The Way We Were lyrics - Glen Campbell

Hey you know everybody's talkin' about the good old days
Everybody the good old days
The good old days
Well, let's talk about the good old days
Come to think about it
As bad as we think they are
These will become the good old days of our children
Why don't we try to remember
The kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember
And if you remember
Then follow
Why does it always seem the past is better
We look back and think
The winters were warmer
The grass was greener
The skies were bluer
The smiles were brighter
Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me
Would we?
Could we?

Memories like the corners of my mind
Memories
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Oh can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me
Would we?
Could we?

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we'll remember
We'll remember
Whenever we remember
The Way We Were...

Amazing Grace lyrics - Glen Campbell

Oh amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost oh but now I'm found I was blind Lord but now I see
Through many dangers toils and snares that we already fear
Twas grace that brought the sake the spar and grace will lead us home
When we've when we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining bright shining as the sun
Lord we found this place to sing God's praise Lord as when we first begun
(Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost oh but now I'm found I was blind Lord but now I see)
Amazing amazing grace how sweet the sound...

[Surfin' U.S.A.]

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Trestle
Australia's Narrabeen
All over Manhattan
And down Doheny Way

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

We'll all be planning that route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxing down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on surfari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Haggerties and Swamies
Pacific Palisades
San Onofre and Sunset
Redondo Beach L. A.
All over La Jolla
At Wa'imea Bay.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Still Within The Sound Of My Voice lyrics - Glen campbell

Where have you gone
My darling one
Are you on your own
Are you having fun
Is there someone to hold
When you need it bad
Is it uncontrolled
Like the love we had
Does a day go by
Like a memory
Do you ever try
To remember me
In an automobile
Or a crowded bar
Well I hope you're alright
Wherever you are

And if you're still within the sound of my voice
Over some radio
I just want you to know
You were always my only choice
And wherever you go
That I still love you so
If you're still within the sound of my voice

In the dead of night
Do you hear me call
Something's quite not right
No one's there at all
Did you make a mistake
Was it in your head
Or was it merely me talking
To your heart instead

And if you're still within the sound of my voice
Over some radio
I just want you to know
That it always made me rejoice
Just to have you so near
There's a place for you here
If you're still within the sound of my voice

I am calling like the echo
Of a passing train that cries
One last time before it fades into
The distant hills and dies
I am sending out a message
Like a ship out on the sea in distress
But only you can send a lifeline out to me

Are you still within the sound of my voice
Why don't you let me know
I just can't let you go
If it's wrong then I have no choice
But to love you until
I no longer have the will
If you're still within the sound of my voice

I am calling like the echo
Of a passing train that cries
One last time before it fades into
The distant hills and dies
