How to play the harmonica
1. What Kind of Harmonica should I
use?
* This esongbook is designed for the ten hole Marine Band style
harmonica (which comes with several names). If your harp has a single
row of ten holes with the numbers one through ten engraved in the
cover over the holes, then this course is for you.
* These diatonic scale harmonicas are for us musical dummies.
The diatonic scale is the do-re-me-fa-so-la-te-do scale that you may
have learned in chorus at school. It would include only the white
keys on a piano in you were playing in the key of C.
*There are chromatic scale harmonicas which would include both
the black and the white keys or all the notes in an octave. These
require much more knowledge of music. However, you can play songs in
all the keys on just a C harmonica.
*You do not have to know as much about music theory with the
diatonic scale harmonica. But you do have to own a separate harmonica
for each major key in which we plan to play. We could own as many as
12 harmonicas, though I think you will find that five or six will
cover just about every song you will ever play. You can easily get by
with just a C and a G harmonica if you are not going to be playing
with a band.
* You should have at least two harmonicas to get the maximum
benefit from this software. You should have a diatonic scale
harmonica in both the keys of C and G.
* It is important that you keep in mind that you can play any
song, regardless of the key in which it was composed, on any
harmonica. If you only own a harmonica in the key of A, then every
song you play will be in the key of A, even if it was composed in G
or C. And if you pick up a harmonica in the key of D and play the
same numbering system, you are playing the song in the key of D. You
do not have to relearn a song for each key.

2. My simple harmonica notation system
is as follows:
* Over each word or syllable in the lyrics to a song is a
number.
* If that number is a 4, then you blow in hole number 4.
* However if it is a -4 then you suck into hole number 4.

3. Only attempt to play tunes with
which you are familiar.
* If you can hum it or whistle it, then you can learn to play it
reasonably soon.
* In fact, think of yourself as singing the song through your
instrument and the reeds of the harmonica as a substitute for your
vocal chords.

4. How do I improve my playing?
* Choose any song with which you are familiar. Then play each
line at least five times.
* Start slowly and increase your speed with each repetition.
* Once you have played each line at least five times, then play
the entire song at least twenty times.
* Do not move on to another song until you have mastered the
first one.

5. Do I have to play clear single
notes?
* It is not necessary that you play clear single notes.
* When trying to blow hole #4, it is OK if you include holes #3
and #5.
* Eventually you will want to learn to play single notes.
* Work at it, and it will come to you naturally.

6. Concentrate on tone, not speed.
* The harmonica sounds best when you try to express emotion.
* Speed only distracts from the real beauty of the harmonica.
* Do not try to be a harmonica whiz. Concentrate on the quality
of tone, rather than speed.
* The harmonica sounds best when playing slow emotional tunes.
* Try to make your music express emotion.

7. So How can I produce clear single
notes that express emotion?
*
*
mouth.
*
*
Pucker up as if drawing through a straw.
Wet those lips and insert the harmonica well inside your
Wrap those lips around the hole you are trying to play.
Slide your harmonica inside your lips.
* Do not turn your head to move your mouth back and forth across
the harmonica.
* A mistake many beginners make is to try to play their harp out
on the front of their lips, which makes it almost impossible to get
clear single notes.

8. How To Use Your Tongue To Get
Rhythm.
* Most beginners puff from their lungs for each syllable or
number.
* It is much better to use your tongue to break up the syllables
and produce rhythm.
* Try whispering "Taa-Taa-Taa-Taa-Taa" through your harmonica in
any hole.
* Just use one gentle, steady blow but break up its rhythm with
your tongue.
* Now vary your rhythm pattern, much like the old Morse Code.
Whisper, "Daa-dit-daa-dit".
* When you are playing a song, use your tongue to form the
words.
* In fact, try to pronounce the lyrics to the song through your
harmonica.
* Think of it as "singing" through your instrument.
* It will improve your playing tremendously.

9. How come the professionals sound so
much better than you?
* most professionals that you hear on recordings are using
special microphones and amplifiers that change the natural sound of
the harmonica.
* However, you should know that the sound you hear from your
harmonica is not the same sound that someone standing directly in
front of you hears. The reason is that you hear it partially from the
inside, through your throat, nasal passages and up into your ear
canal.
* For a more realistic listen to what you really sound like, you
should play your harmonica inside a shower stall (without the water
running). Then you will hear more of what others hear as the sound
bounces off the walls.
* Also, everyone has a slightly different harmonica voice. Your
tone is partially produced inside your mouth. Children, with smaller
mouths, will sound different from adults. Men will sound different
from women. Big men will sound different from small men.
* You can have some control on your tone. In general, a gentle
blow will have a more pleasant tone than a forceful blast of air.
Blowing from deeper in your throat will sound different from puffing
from your cheeks. The same way you change your voice, is the same way
you can change your tone.
* See if you can produce noticeably different tones by the way
you shape your mouth, jaw and tongue.
* The experienced harp player will have developed his ear to the
point that he can tell the difference.

10. How to use your hands to change
the sound.
* You can use your hands to add effects to your music.
* Cup your harmonica in your hands in such a way that you can
enclose it completely to muffle its sound.
* Then by opening and closing your hands with each syllable, you
will be producing a "waa-waa" sound.
* By rapidly opening and closing your hands you will be
producing a tremolo effect.
* By opening your hands wide and leaving them open to form a
megaphone effect, you will increase the volume.

11. Which style is best, single notes
or chords?
* You should be able to play clear single notes by now. But
occasionally you will want to open your pucker and allow three or
four holes to play.
* When you do, you will be playing a chord. It sounds well to
include a chord where you feel appropriate in a song.
* The point is that you can play a song any old way you want.
Someone else may play it completely different.
* There is no right or wrong way. Just make your own kind of
music.

12. How to breathe
* How often do you find yourself running out of breathing room
in your lungs in the middle of an important note?
* How do you plan so that this does not happen?
* How do you smoothly change from a blow note to a draw note?
* And, how do you keep from getting winded as if you had jogged
a mile?
* Breathing is an important factor in your harmonica playing. I
wish I could give you some steps to improving your breath control.
There is not too much that I can say, other than it comes naturally.
* Each song is different. You have to play a song about 25 times
before you know ahead of time when to fill your lungs.
* Here a few tips:
+ Blow gently. It can be downright exhausting to try to
increase your volume by increasing the flow of air passing through
your harmonica. And it can wear the reeds out in your harmonica
sooner than is normal.
+ Do not try to compete with the other instruments by
playing louder than usual. It will not work. The harmonica is not a
trumpet. It is a soft-toned instrument that sounds best if played the
way it was intended.
+ Play single notes. If you are playing three or four holes
at a time, it is like playing three or four harmonicas at a time. It
just takes that much more wind to play. And it can be exhausting.

13. What is this bending notes stuff?
* A bent note is one that is not true to the note the harmonica
was designated to play. A draw four on a C harmonica should be a
true D note. A bent draw four is actually playing it in such a way as
to produce a note that is just 1/2 step down or a D flat.
* This is how some harmonica players are able to play songs that
have sharps and flats that are out of their natural position in their
keys. It is how they use a diatonic scale harmonica to play notes
that are not programmed into their harmonica.
* It is also how you produce a wavy or bluesy sound on your
harmonica. By bending a long drawn out note, you can produce a rather
nice sounding emotional expression to your music. You can make your
harmonica moan or wail. It gives a song a mournful sound.
back to top
14. How do I bend a note?
* Only attempt to bend draw notes, not blow notes. Stay down on
the low end of your harmonica. It is easier to bend a draw three than
it is to bend a draw 8.
* Make sure your lips are well moistened and the harmonica is
placed well inside your lips.
* Make sure you have an airtight connection around a single
hole. If air leaks around the side of the hole you will not be able
to control the amount of air flow passing through the reed.
* While drawing air through the hole (a good long draw at that),
change the air pressure passing through your harmonica.
* An easy way to naturally increase the air flow is to drop your
jaw while drawing air, making sure to maintain an airtight fit around
the single hole.
* I suggest to my students that they say the word "Yawww" while
drawing air in. This naturally causes them to drop their jaw.
* Practice this for a while until you notice the pitch of your
tone lowering. Then see if you can cause the pitch to wave up and
down.
* Only use this draw bent note where it seems appropriate. Do
not over due it.

15. Can I repair my own harmonica?
* Far too many harmonicas end up in the bottom of desk drawers,
waiting for some magic repairman to come to their aid. Their owners
get frustrated with one hole that just doesn't sound right. Is there
any hope?
* That weird sound coming from that mysterious hole may be the
result of any one of several things.
* It may just be one of those difficult holes to produce a clear
sweet tone. Every hole requires a slight different amount of air to
make it sound right. Most reeds are pretty forgiving and will produce
a sound pretty close to what is supposed to come out. But there is
almost always one hole that just seems to sound off key no matter
what we do. Even if we go out and purchase a brand new harmonica,
that same hole will give us problems. It is often that this hole
requires the exact air pressure.
* Perhaps your harmonica needs to warm up. This is especially so
if it is a new instrument or if you have left it in a cold car. It
may be a little stiff. Often all that is needed is to hold it close
to your body for a few minutes.
* Perhaps a hair or thread has found its way inside your
harmonica. This happens to me often as I carry a harmonica in shirt
pocket with my comb.
* Perhaps a small drop of moisture was allowed to remain inside
your harmonica and it formed a tiny bit of rust. A good practice is
to pound your harp into the palm of your hand to knock out any
moisture that has been allowed to accumulate.
* Repair Tips:
+ Purchase harmonicas that are constructed with screws or
nuts and bolts. This allows you to remove the cover plates. It is OK
to remove the plates and no harm will come to your harmonica.
+ Remove any hairs or threads that have found their way
inside your harmonica.
+ Gently break free any reeds that are stuck from rust
beads.
+ Blow any dust or crumbs out of your harmonica.
* That shiny new harmonica can lose its luster very fast. To
restore its appearance get a jewelry polishing cloth from the jewelry
department in Walmart and polish the covers. It does wonders.

16. The Ten Hour Rule
* You can learn all the basic skills on the harmonica in about
ten hours of playing time.
* After the first ten hours of playing, your skills advance very
slowly. Possibly your tone and expression will improve some. And your
breathing skills will improve a little. But for all practical
purposes, others around you will not be able to tell much difference
between you and the more experienced player.
* I have heard the statement, The only difference between the
harmonica player who has played ten hours and the one who has played
ten years is the number of songs they have learned.
* You have probably passed the ten hour mark by now. If so,
consider yourself as having arrived at the competent level of skill.
* From here on out it is just a matter of adding to the number
of songs you have memorized.
back to top
17. Playing in public.
* Sooner or later you are going to find yourself playing before
an audience.
* Most harmonica players keep their skill to themselves. They
only play out on their deck or porch. If they have an audience, it is
most likely their dog.
* The real harmonica players find that playing their instrument
is good therapy. It soothes their emotions and calms their nerves. It
is their tranquilizer. Many marriages have been saved simply by the
harmonica player partner going off by himself to play his instrument.
In so doing, a war was avoided.
* But eventually, you will find yourself playing in front of
others. It is a good idea to prepare ahead of time.
* First, begin by playing for your children or grand children.
Kids are fascinated by the harmonica. And they never laugh at your
mistakes.
* Second, find a guitar player who will jam along with you. A
guitar can improve the sound of your playing 200%. Then when you are
asked to play in front of audience at church or your local Lion's
club dinner, you will not be alone. Having someone beside you, helps
take away the fear.
* Third, make sure you know the song you are going to play.
Practice it at least 50 times before attempting to do it in public.
This will give you confidence and it will surely show during your
performance.
* Fourth, only play one or at the most two songs. Always leave
your audience wishing for more, not wishing for you to quit.
* Fifth, play familiar songs. Choose songs that the audience
will know the lyrics. If you are playing in church, announce the hymn
number and let them read the lyrics as you play.
* Sixth, do not try to improve on the composer's arrangement.
Keep it simple.

She said "There is no reason,

But I wandered through my playing cards

Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just just have well been closed.
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

You're the one to bla-me!

You broke my heart
When you said we'll part.
Ain't that a shame!
My tears fell like rain.
Ain't that a shame!
You're the one to blame!
verse 3.
Oh well, good-bye,
Although I'll cry.
Ain't that a shame!
My tears fell like rain.
Ain't that a shame!
You're the one to blame!

11. And So It Goes
Billy Joel
4 5 6
-6
6
-6 6

In ev-'ry heart there is a room,
-4
5 -4 5 6
6
5
-4
A sanc-tu-ar-y safe and strong.
4
5
6
-6
6 -6
6
5
To heal the wounds from lov-ers past,
-4 5 6 6
5
4
4
4
un-til a new one comes a-long.
4
5
6 -6
6 -6
6
5
I spoke to you in cau-tious tones;
-4
5
-4
5
6
6 5
-4
You an-swered me with no pre-tense.
4
5
6 -6 6 -6
6
5
And still I feel I said too much.
-4 5
6
6 5
4
4
4
My si-lence is my self de-fense.
4
5 6
7
-6
6 -5
6
And ev-'ry time I've held a rose
-5
5 -6 -6 5
-4
4
4
It seems I on-ly felt the thorns.
4
5 6
7
-6
6 -5
6
And so it goes, and so it goes.
-5
5 -6 -7
7 -7 -6
6
and so will you soon I sup-pose.
4
5 6 -6
6
-6
6
5
But if my si-lence made you leave,
-4
5
-4
5 6
6
5
-4
then that would be my worst mis-take.
4 5 6
-6
6
-6
6
5
So I will share this room with you.
-4
5
6
6 5 -4
4
4
4
And you can have this heart to break.
4
5
6 7 -6 6
-5
6
And this is why my eyes are closed,
-5
5 -6 -6
5 -4
4
-4
It's just as well for all I've seen.
4
5 6
7
-6
6 -5
6
And so it goes, and so it goes
-5
5
-6 -7 7 -7 -6
6
and you're the on-ly one who knows.
4 5
6
-6
6 -6 6
5
So I would choose to be with you.
-4
5 -4
5
-6
6
5 -4
That's if the choice were mine to make.
4
5
6
-6
6 -6
6
5
But you can make de-ci-sions, too.
-4
5
6
6 5 -4
4
4
4
And you can have this heart to break.
4
5 6
7
-6
6 -5 6
And so it goes, and so it goes,
-5
5
6
6 5 -4 4
4
4
and you're the on-ly o-ne who knows.

May be the sun's light will be dim
And it won't matter anyhow
If morning's echoes say we've sinned
Well it was what I wanted now
And if we're victims of the night
I won't be blinded by the light
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Then slowly turn away from me
Through the tears of the day, of the years baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me darling
Just call me angel of the morning baby
Just touch my cheek before you leave me darling

to a man named Curtis Loew.

Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair.
6
6 6 6
6
6 -6 -6 -6 -6
-6 6 5
When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care.
7
7
7 7 -6 6
7 -6
He used to own an old Dobro,
-6
-6 -6 -6 -6
6
5
used to play it cross his knee.
6
6
6
6
6 6 -6

I'd give old Curt my money he'd play all day for me.

People said he was useless,
-6
-6 -6 -6 -6
6
-4
but them people all were fools.
4
5 6
6 -6
6 -6 6
5 -4
Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker
4 5 5
5 -4

to ever play the blues.
6
6
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6 -6-6 6
5
He looked to be sixty and maybe I was ten
6 6
6
6
6
-6
Momma used to whoop me,
6
-6 7 -6
6 6 5
but I'd go see him again.
7
7
7
7
7
-6 -6
I'd clap my hands, stomp my feets,
-6 -6 -6
6 5
try to stay in time.
6
6 6
6
6 6
He'd play a song or two
-6
7
-6 -6-6 -6
6
5
then take another drink of wine.
Chorus:
6 6
6 -6
-6 -6 -6
On the day old Curtis died,
-6-6-6 -6
6
5
nobody came to pray.
6
6
6
6
6
6
Old preacher said some words,
-6
6
7
-6
6 6
5
and they chucked him in the clay.
7
7
7 -6 7
-6 -6 -6 -6
Well he lived a lifetime of playing
-6
-6
6
5
the black man's blues.
6
6 6
6 -6 -6
6
5
And on the day he lost his life,
-6

-6 -6 -6
6
5
well that's all he had to lose.

Gonna see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends

Where the folks are fine,
and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Oh that girl of mine by my side,
the silver moon and the evening time
Oh, on some sweet day, gonna take away this hurtin' inside
I'd never be blue, my dreams come true

The floor has a carpet of sorrow
But no one can weep in the aisle

For things never change in this place
There's no present, no past, no future
We're the ones who have lost in love's race

Moons and junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
When every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way
But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care don't let them know
Don't give yourself away
refrain:
I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
verse 3
Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way
But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads they say I've changed
But something's lost and something's gained
In living every day
refrain:
I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Reading departure signs in some big airport
reminds me of the places I've been
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
makes me want to go back again
If it suddenly ended tomorrow
I could somehow adjust to the fall
Good times and riches and son of a b****-**
I've seen more than I can re-call
2nd Chorus:
It's those Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes
Nothin' remains quite the same
With all of the islands and all the highlands
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane
verse 3.
I think about Paris when I'm high on red wine
and I wish I could jump on a plane
and so many nights I just I just dream on the ocean
God I wish I was sailin' again
Oh but yesterdays are over my shoulder
so I can't look back for too long
There's just too much at sea waiting in front of me
and I don't think I just can go wrong
Chorus:
It's those Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes
Nothin' remains quite the same

Not just Havanas or bananas or daiquiris
But that American creation on which I feed

verse 2.
Dealing cards with the old men in the club car
And it's a penny a point
there ain't no-one's keeping score
Oh won't you pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
You can hear the wheels a-rumblin through the flow
And the sons of Pullman porters
and the song of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steam
And the mothers with their babes asleep,
go rockin' to the gentle beat
The rhythm of the rails is all they dream
chorus:
verse 3.
Midnight on the City of New Orleans
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
We're halfway home We'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness rolling to the sea
And then all the towns and people
seem to fade into a bad dream
Old steel rail it ain't heard the news
Conductor sings his song again,
the passengers will please refrain
Well this train's got the disappearing railroad blues

Another love before my time
made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now
for things I didn't do
In anger unkind words were said
that make the teardrops start
Why can't I free your doubtful mind,
and melt your cold cold heart
verse 3.
You'll never know how much it hurts
to see you sit and cry
You know you need and want my love
yet you're afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from lies,
to try it just ain't smart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind
and melt your cold cold heart
verse 4.
There was a time when I believed
that you belonged to me
But now I know your heart
is shackled to a memory
The more I learn to care for you,
the more we drift apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind
and melt your cold cold heart

Then the music stopped
When I looked the café was empty

And as I rode away
I could hear her say to Joscute;, yeah

I hear the sound of bugles blowing,
Far away, far away,
And if they call, then I must go,
Across the sea, so wild and gray.
So, Mary, marry me, let's not wait.
Or the distant drums might change our wedding day.
Love me now, for now is all the time there may be,
If you love me, Mary, Mary, marry me.

So please don't give a thought to me,

Anyway, my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

on down to San Antone.
Verse 2.
When I was just a baby, my momma told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin',
I hang my head and cry.
Verse 3.
I bet there's rich folk eatin'in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures
me.
Verse 4.
Well if they freed me from this prison,
if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move it all a little farther down the line,
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.

Verse 2.
She was his girl, his only whirl,
that string of pearls that slipped away.
A thousand dimes, a thousand times
he doesn't mind what they say.
He fills the jukebox, and plays the same old song.
He fills his glass, and then he turns her memory on.

Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting

One night with you is like heaven
And so while I'm walking the floor
I listen for steps in the hallway
And wait for your knock on my door.

-3 4
And four or five years slipped away
verse 2.
Then he went to England, played the piano
And married an actress named Kim
They had a fine life, she was a good wife
And bore him a young son named Jim
And all of the answers and all of the questions
Locked in his attic one day
'Cause he liked the quiet clean country livin'
And twenty more years slipped away
verse 3.
Well the war took his baby, the bombs killed his lady
And left him with only one eye
His body was battered, his whole world was shattered
And all he could do was just cry
While the tears were a-fallin' he was recallin'
Answers he never found
So he hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean
And left England without a sound
verse 4.
Now he lives in the islands, fishes the pilin's
And drinks his Green Label each day
Writing his memoirs, losin' his hearin'
But he don't care what most people say
Through eighty-six years of perpetual motion
If he likes you he'll smile and he'll say
"Jimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragic
But I had a good life all the way"

And I've just begun to climb;

Tonight I'll sing my songs again
I'll play the game and pretend,m m m
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptyness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me

Home, where my thought's escaping
Home, where my music's playing
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

And all the folks back home well, said I was a fool
They said oh, believe in the Lord is the golden rule
They said stay at home boy, you gotta tend the farm
Living in the city boy, is going to break your heart
But how can you stay, when your heart says no
How can you stop when your feet say go

verse2.
Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She's got the Mercedes Benz
She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard,
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember,
some dance to forget
So I called up the Captain,
Please bring me my wine
He said,.We haven't had
that spirit here since 1969.
And still those voices
are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say
chorus-
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely Place,
Such a lovely Place (background)
Such a lovely face,
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise,
What a nice surprise (background)
Bring your alibies
verse3.
Mir-rors on the ceil-ing,Pink cham-pagne on ice
And she said,.We are all just pris-on-ers here
Of our own de-vice.
And in the mast-er's cham-bers
They gath-ered for the feast
They stab it with their steel-y knives
But they just can't kill the beast
Last thing I re-mem-ber,
I was run-ning for the door
I had to find the pas-sage back
to the place I was be-fore
Re-lax said the night-man,
.We are pro-gramed to re-cieve
You can check out an-y time you like

With my back against the wall
Nothing grows, and life ain't very pretty

Faraway from the neon sky
I know there must be somethin' better
And I can't stay another night
In the city,oh,oh.

And Jody said, "It's mine
and you can have it for seventeen million."

Sits on the porch swing watching them fly
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus

He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times said God is dead
And the war's begun
Alvin Tostig has a son today

Must be seven seven months or more
Ran out of time and money
Looks like they took my friends
Oh ! Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again
verse 3.
The man from the magazine
Said I was on my way
Somewhere I lost connections
Ran out of songs to play
I came into town, a one night stand
Looks like my plans fell through
Oh ! Lord, Stuck in Lodi again
verse 4.
If I only had a dollar
For ev'ry song I've sung
And ev'ry time I had to play
While people sat there drunk
You know, I'd catch the next train
Back to where I live
Oh ! Lord, I'm stuck in a Lodi again
Oh ! Lord, I'm stuck in a Lodi again

With firey eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating

She whispers it's only for a while
She swears that soon she'll be coming back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

She gets up and pours herself a strong one
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night - it's gonna be a long one
She draws the shade and hangs her head and cries
She wonders how it ever got this crazy
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired, or did she just get lazy
She's so far gone, she feels just like a fool
My, oh my, you sure know know how to arrange things
You set it up so well, so carefully
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things
You're still the same ole' girl you used to be

And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes...
There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes...

Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty
A Mexican cutie
How it got here I haven't a clue
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
Now I think
H***, it could be my fault
I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heal had to cruise on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know
It's my own d***** fault
Yes and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know
It's my owned d***** fault

Pink in the mirror on top of the hill,

doin' a hundred and ten gallopin' over that hill.
Offhill curve, a downhill strecth,
me and that Cadillac neck by neck.
Refrain:
verse 3.
The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford,
the Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more.
It then got cloudy and it started to rain,
I tooted my horn for a passin' lead
the rain water blowin' all under my hood,
I knew that was doin' my motor good.
Refrain:
verse 4.
The motor cooled down, the heat went down
and that's when I heard that highway sound.
The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead
a hundred and ten a half a mile ahead.
The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
and I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill.

Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather
and through everything that we done
I said Bobby baby, he kept me from the cold
One day up near Salinas, Lord,
I let him slip away
He was lookin' for that home,
and I hope he finds it
But I'd trade all my tomorrows
for one single yesterday
To be holding Bobby's body next to mine

In `65 tension was running high at my high school
There was a lot of fights between the black and white
There was nothing you could do
Two cars at a light on a Saturday night
in the back seat there was a gun
Words were passed in a shotgun blast
Troubled times had come to my hometown
My hometown, my hometown, my hometown

And I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

and she leaned and whispered in my ear
cuddlin' more and drivin' slow
with no particular place to go
verse 3
No particular place to go
So we parked way out on ko-ko-mo
The night was young and the moon was gold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you image the way I felt
I couldn't unfasten her safety belt
Verse 4
Riding along in my calaboose
Still trying to get her belt a-loose
all the way home I held a grudge
for the safety belt that wouldn't budge
Cruisin' and playing the radio
with no particular place to go

Ain't got no distractions,

he can beat my best
His disciples lean him in
and he just does the rest
He's got crazy flipper fingers,
never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid

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

verse 2.
Now away in the near future
Southeast of disorder
You can shake the hand of the mango man
As he greats you at the border
And the lady she hails from Trinidad
Island of the spices
Salt for your meat, and cinnamon sweet
And the rum is for all your good vices
Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind
That our forefathers harnessed before us
Hear the bells ring as the tight rigging sings
It's a son of a gun of a chorus
verse 3.
Where it all ends I can't fathom my friends
If I knew I might toss out my anchor
So I cruise along always searchin' for songs
Not a lawyer a thief or a banker
But a son of a son, son of a son
Son of a son of a sailor
Son of a gun, load the last ton
One step ahead of the jailer
I'm just a son of a son, son of a son
Son of a son of a sailor
The sea's in my veins, my tradition remains
I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer

Verse 2.
Starry starry night, flaming flower's

Colors changing hue, morning fields of amber grain.
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artists' loving hand.

Now the first of December was covered with snow
And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston
Lord, the Berkshires seemed dreamlike
on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me
and ten thousand more to go
There's a song that they sing
when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me
chorusGoodnight you moonlight ladies
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
Won't you let me go down in my dreams
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James

and such a fine sight to see:
it's a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed Ford
slowin' down to take a look at me.

So open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy.

Well, I'm a runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my

Take it easy, take it easy,

Oh, we got it easy,

Of a worn out relation
Enough of the jealousy
And the intoleration
I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
