Pete Seeger – John Hardy Lyrics

John Hardy was a desperate little man
He carried two guns ev’ry day
He shot down a man on that West Virginia line
You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away
You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away
John Hardy stood in that old baroom
So drunk that he could not see
And a man walked up and took him by the arm
He said, “Johnny, come and go along with me
Poor boy, Johnny, come and walk along with me.”
John Hardy stood in his old jail cell
The tears running down from his eyes
He said, “I’ve been the death of many a poor boy
But my six-shooters never told a lie
No, my six-shooters never told a lie
The first one to visit John Hardy in his cell
Was a little girl dressed in blue
She came down to that old jail cell
She said, “Johnny, I’ve been true to you
God knows, Johnny, I’ve been true to you.”
The next one to visit John Hardy in his cell
Was a little girl dressed in red
She came down to that old jail cell
She said, “Johnny, I had rather see you dead
Well, Johnny, I had rather see you dead.”
“I’ve been to the East and I’ve been to the West
I’ve traveled this wide world around
I’ve been to that river and I’ve been baptized
So take me to my burying ground
So take me to my burying ground.”
John Hardy was a desperate little man
He carried two guns ev’ry day
He shot down a man on the West Virginia line
You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away
You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away

Della Mae – Ain’t No Ash Will Burn Lyrics

I have seen snow that fell in May
And I have seen rain on cloudless days
Somethings are always bound to change
There ain’t no ash will burn
Love is a precious thing I’m told
It burns just like West Virginia coal
But when the fire dies down it’s cold
There ain’t no ash will burn
You say this life is not your lot
Well I can’t be something that I’m not
We can’t stoke a fire that we ain’t got
There ain’t no ash will burn
In every life there comes a time
Where there are no more tears to cry
We must leave something dear behind
There ain’t no ash will burn
There is one lesson I have learned
There ain’t no ash will burn

John Denver – Take Me Home, Country Roads lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze.

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong.
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads.

All my memories gather round her, miner’s lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye.

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong.
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads.

I hear her voice in the morning hour, she calls me, the radio reminds me of my home far away.
And driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong.
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads.

Country roads, take me home to the place I belong.
West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads

Take me home now, country roads,
Take me home now, country roads.

Dave Evans Solo – She Comes Into The Station lyrics

Well She comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Yes she comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Just a littler girl from Denver.
Her mother was from Maine.
Her daddy up and left her.
Never been the same.

Well She comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Yes she comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

About her brother on the needle.
Her mother cried it out.
And her sister being lonely.
Never finding out.

About her uncle doing cold turkey.
An Aunt ready for the grave.
And a cousin in the army.
Trying to prove he’s brave.

Well She comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Yes she comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

About a baby boy in Oklahoma.
Doesn’t even know his name.
Another back in West Virginia.
And a third back in Maine.

Talking about a husband.
Who left her on her own.
Who left her with her trying load.
Never to come home.

Well She comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Yes she comes into the station,
Talking about her life.

Chris Stapleton – Scarecrow In The Garden

[Verse 1]
Well he came from Northern Ireland
Searching for the free man’s ground
And he came to bet his fortune
On a West Virginia plow
He built a house of timber
And raised a redhead son
Then they worked the land together
And prayed the rain would come

[Chorus]
There’s a scarecrow in the garden
That looks like Lucifer
And I’ve been reading Revelations
With my bare feet in the river

[Verse 2]
Well the redhead’s son got older
And took a brown eyed wife
And the fields were green as dollars
Cause the dirt was black as night
I came in late September
The youngest one of three
And my sisters off and married
So the land was left to me

[Chorus]
There’s a scarecrow in the garden
That looks like Lucifer
And I’ve been reading Revelations
With my bare feet in the river

[Verse 3]
I know every single fencepost
Every rock that goes around
I’ve been staring at the red oak
Where I know they’ll lay me down

[Bridge]
The fields ain’t what they once were
The rains just seem to flood
And I’ve been thinking about that river
Wondering how it turned to blood

[Outro]
I’ve been sitting here all morning
I was sitting here all night
There’s a bible in my left hand
And a pistol in my right

John Denver – Country Roads lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Chorus:
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories, gathered ’round her
Miners’ Lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Chorus

I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin’ down the road I get the feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Chorus x 2 (modulates)
