Oh Maggie

length: 3:12

(chorus)
Oh Maggie, give me one more chance I swear I will make everything right
Oh Maggie, can I have this dance please stay, tonight
Walking down broadway in the blinding light
The city is ringing in my ears
Trying to work out how a few months turned into years
She cradles the young ones by the fireside
Smoldering embers among tears
Collects a few bar bites
And each fortnight, I'm in her ears.
And she fears, and I say.
(Chorus)

Millions of people on this crowded street
I've never felt so all alone
Longing to see her is all that's keeping me going
Maggie, if only you would understand
Being apart can set us free
Its just taking longer than I ever thought it would be
Oh believe me, when I say
(chorus)

And I say,

(chorus 2x)

Gucci

length: 3:44
Two-tone leopard with your soul of fire
You're a wanton giver of a shiver delivered
To a skin-covered spine in a moment's tingle
You face a haunty taunt
Sing-song laughing and a life-lined stranger
And a rippin' and a sippin' and a looky no touchy
With a rolled off dance and the freedom to show you love, Oh-oh
But your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and blue jeans
No, your Gucci no better than my steel shoes at all
Your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and my blue jeans
No no no no no no no

Playing cards and drinking on a feather bed
Is a picture of a lover with a tattoo of the dead
Tarot guru with a future told
In the beautiful tongue of rock and roll
Down to earth shine your pink light, Venus
On a rhinestone stepper skipping off-beats in, on-beat bow
Row torn lover when you admit desire
You lift the one you want
But your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and blue jeans
No, your Gucci no better than my steel shoes at all
Your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and my blue jeans
No no no no no no no

(Instrumental Break)

But your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and blue jeans
No, your Gucci no better than my steel shoes at all
Your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and my blue jeans
No no no no no no no (repeat X1)

A-and, and she was shivering shoulder to shoulder
L-o-o-osing and knew it and in need of a lover
with the rhythm of her eyes moving side to side
I now know that she's lying but I know she's mine
In all of the future in all of the past
O-only the present is gonna last
So tenderly won and lovingly wooed
I found the woman to match-a my mood
But your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and blue jeans
No, your Gucci no better than my steel shoes at all
Your Gucci no better than my steel shoes and my blue jeans
No no no no no no no (repeat X1)

Down-Down
Down to earth, down down down down to e-e-earth
Down to earth, go down down to e-e-earth
Down to earth, down down to e-e-earth
(Listen and understand the tempo of the "Down to Earth" part and improvise were pleasing.
Have fun! - Rainbow Blitzkrieg)

All Around the World

length: 3:24
Cold night,
Warm hearts,
Hands held together hiding from the dark,
Real world,
Busy Street,
Can you taste the rythem rise from everyone you meet?
Count it in and hear the beat
Move to till become complete
Save a dance for me,
Celtic love.
Put your hands together
put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
Put your hands together
Put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
Street lights
Suburban streets
Wands left behind her dancing cheek to cheek
tears fall
for you
when you find your hearts desire you'll know just what to do
Count it in and hear the beat
Move to till become complete
Save a dance for me,
Celtic love.
Put your hands together
put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
Put your hands together
Put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
i want you to know

that i dont fear the sound of wind
i want you to know

Put your hands together
put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
Put your hands together
Put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world
Put your hands together
Put your arms around your girl
and your love will make a circle that reaches all around the world.

Health to the Company

So here's a Health to the company, and one to my lass
Let's drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
Until we all meet here again

Kind friends come join me in rhyme
And lift your voices up with mine

There's no one in this wide world as happy as we

So here's a health to the company, and one for my lass
Let's drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Or drink and be merry, all grief to refrain

And I hope she safe landing without any shock
And if we ever meet again, by land or by sea
Then I will always remember your kindness to me

Galway Girl

length: 2:56
Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
Of a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl
'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl
We were halfway there when the rain came down
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
And she asked me up to her flat downtown
Of a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl
And I lost my heart to a Galway girl
When I woke up I was all alone
With a broken heart and a ticket home
And I ask you now, tell me what would you do
If her hair was black and her eyes were blue
I've traveled around I've been all over this world
Boys I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway girl

Peggy Gordon

length: 3:41
Oh, Peggy Gordon you are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
Come tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee
I'm so in love I can't deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
It's not for you to let the world know it
A troubled mind can know no rest

I did put my head to a cask of brandy
It was my fancy I do declare
For when I'm drinking I am thinking
And wishing Peggy Gordon was here
I wish I was away in Ingo
Far across the briny sea
Sailing o'er the deepest ocean
Where love nor care never bother me

I wish I was in some lonesome valley
Where womankind can not be found
Where the pretty small birds do change their voices
And every moment a different sound
Oh, Peggy Gordon you are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
Come tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee

High

length: 3:30
well i see the face in the first light of day as i
went to greet the morning sun
i know that she's in the sweet summer breeze
with love enough for everyone
its cool i get to be that guy
who gets it all and that is why
everyday i'm flying hiigh

higher than I ever been
seen the things I've never seen before she takes me high
can hardly believe my eyes sooring above the bluest sky she makes me feel alive

she's all i need
the air that i breath
oh she takes my breath away
she'ss all around in every side and every sound
they're the dreams that form my day
i stop to thank the lord above
somehow I'm worthy of her love

heavens know I'm flying high

higher than I ever been
seen the things I've never seen before she takes me high
can hardly believe my eyes sooring above the bluest sky sky she makes me feel alive
its cool i get to be that guy
who gets it all and that is why
everyday im flying hiigh

High
higher than I ever been
seen the things I've never seen before she takes me high
can hardly believe my eyes sooring above the bluest sky sky she makes me feel alive
higher than I ever been
seen the things I've never seen before she takes me high
can hardly believe my eyes sooring above the bluest sky sky she makes me feel alive

Ireland's Shore

length: 4:07
So, fare the well
My own true love
I think of you night and day
Fare well to old Ireland
Good bye to you Banna Strand
No time to look back
Facing the wind
Fighting the waves
May heaven protect us all
From cold hunger and angry squalls
Pray I won't be lost
Winds in the sails carry me safe

[Chorus:]
So, fare the well
My own true love
I'll think of you night and day
A place in my mind
You will surely find
Although I am so far away
And when I'm alone
Far away from home
I'll think of the good times once more
Until I can make it back
Some day
Here to Paddy's green shamrock shore
Out now on the ocean deep
Ships noise makes it hard to sleep
Tears fill up my eyes
The image of you
Won't go away
[Chorus:]
New York is in sight at last
My heart it is pounding fast
Trying to be brave
Wishing you near
By my side
As one

Come with Me Now

length: 3:44
One morning a young man
was walking his way
when he saw a fair maid
come along the highway.
He said to this fair maid,
"If you do not mind,
I will walk with you
on this fine morning"
The young maid she told a sorrowful tale
How the landlord was wicked
and forced her to wail.
And she had just left
on that very same morn
then the young man he turned and he told her

"Won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.
Oh won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always."

The young man
he took this fair maid by the hand
he said, "Come with me now
to a far away land"
For he had a plan that the two could be free
to seek out their fortunes together.
They boarded a ship that would take them away
and she clung to his arm
as the ship it did sway.
When he held her and told her to not be afraid
she had felt that her troubles were over.

Won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.
Oh won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.

The two fell in love
and they soon settled down
and in no time at all,
heard the wedding bells sound.
They started a union
and they knew it would last.
They would treasure the time of their meeting.
When one morning a young man
was walking his way
when he saw a fair maid
come along the highway.
He said to this fair maid,
"If you do not mind,
I will walk with you
on this fine morning."

Won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.
Oh won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.

Oh won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.
Oh won't you come with me now?
And I will look after you always.
