David Rawlings – Cumberland Gap Lyrics

[Refrain]
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap

[Verse 1]
Kiss me momma, kiss your boy
Bless me well and lucky
For I won’t be back ’til I return
I’m gone to old Kentucky
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
That’s what the scouts all tell ya
Sure enough it may get tough
If it doesn’t kill ya, kill ya

[Chorus]
Kentucky she’s a waiting on the other side
Give you the fever, put the daylight in your eyes

[Verse 2]
Brother John’s already gone
With the full-blood Cherokee maiden
He made the trip in the blizzard’s grip
I’d rather wrestle Satan
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Oh, the snow kept coming
Picked her up upon his back
By God, he loved that woman!

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Daniel stood on the pinnacle rock
Lookin’ up and down the mountain
Took his trusty old flint-lock
Daniel started shoutin’, shoutin’:

[Chorus]
Kentucky she’s a waiting on the other side
Give you the fever, put the daylight in your eyes

[Refrain]
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap

U2 – American Soul (New York)

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
Blessed are the bullies
For one day they will have to stand up to themselves
Blessed are the liars
For the truth can be awkward

[Verse 1: Bono]
It’s not a place
This country is to me a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

[Bridge 1: Bono]
Look around, look around
Look around, it’s a sound
Look around, look around
It’s a sound

[Verse 2: Bono]
It’s not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
We came here looking for American soul

[Verse 3: Bono]
It’s not a place
This is a dream the whole world owns
The pilgrim’s face
It had your heart to call her home

[Refrain]
Hold on Brother John
Too many mothers weepin’
Dream on Brother John
But in your dreams you can’t be sleepin’

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
We came here looking for American soul
American
American

[Bridge 2: Bono]
Put your hands in the air
Hold up the sky
Could be too late, but we still gotta try
There’s a moment in our life where a soul can die
And the person in a country when you believe the lie
The lie (the lie, the lie)
There’s a promise in the heart of every good dream
It’s a call to action, not to fantasy
The end of a dream, the start of what’s real
Let it be unity
Let it be community
For refugees like you and me
A country to receive us
Will you be our sanctuary
Refu-Jesus

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
American soul
American soul

Beach Boys – Surf’s Up lyrics

A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
To a handsome man and baton
(Bygone, bygone)
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn
(Bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaken me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn
(Bygone, bygone)
The music hall a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumpeter swan
(Bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove nested towers the hour was
Strike the street quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog
Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired rose
The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
While at port, adieu or die

A choke of grief heart hardened, I
Beyond belief, a broken man too tough to cry

Surf’s up, mm-mm, mm-mm, mm-mm
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children’s song

(Child, child, child, child, child)
A child is the father of the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
A child is the father of the man
A children’s song
Have you listened as they played?
Their song is love
And the children know the way
That’s why the child is the father to the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
(Child, child, child, child, child)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Child, child, child, child, child)
That’s why the child is the father to the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
