Coat Of Many Colors lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Back through the years
I go wonderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And my momma put those rags to use
There were rags of many colors
Every piece was small
And I early in the fall
Momma sewed the rags together
She sowed every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of
As she sewed, she told a story
From the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors
Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps this coat will bring you
Good luck and happiness
I just couldn't wait to wear it
Cause momma blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors
That my momma made for me
Made from only rags
But I wore it so proudly
But we didn't have much money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

They didn't understand
And I tried to make them see
That one is only poor
Only if they choose to be
Well we didn't have much money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me
In my coat of many colours
My momma made Just for me

My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose lyrics - eva cassidy

My love's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;

My love is like a melody
So sweetly play'd in tune

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Though all the seas gone dry.

Though all the seas gone dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun;
I will love thee still my dear,
Though the sands o' life shall run.

So fare-thee-weel, my only love!
And fare-thee-weel awhile!
And I will come to you again,
Though it were ten thousand miles!

Though it were ten thousand miles, my dear
Though it twere ten thousand miles.
I will come to you again.
Though it twere ten thousand miles.

Ain't Doin' Too Bad lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Well, I got me some money
And a fine place to stay
Got a car I can drive
I ride around everyday

Ain't doing too bad
Ain't doing too bad at all
I ain't doing too bad baby
Ain't doing too bad at all

I got a book full of men
I can call on the phone
And they all dig me
'Cause my conversation's so strong

Ain't doing too bad
Ain't doing too bad at all
I ain't doing too bad baby
Ain't doing too bad at all

I don't like work
Work don't like me
We stay away from each other
That's the way it ought to be

Ain't doing too bad
Ain't doing too bad at all
I ain't doing too bad baby
Ain't doing too bad at all

Ain't doing too bad
Ain't doing too bad at all
Oh no, no, no, I ain't doing too bad
Ain't doing too bad at all

Won't Be Long lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Baby here I am by the railroad track
Waitin' for my baby, he's comin' back
Comin' back to me on the 503
Ooh and it won't be long, no it won't be long

I get so lonesome since my man's been gone
There ain't a thing worth mentioning
Nothin' goin' on and that's why I know when the whistle blows
That it won't be long, no won't be long

My daddy told me when he said goodbye, yes, he did
I'll be back baby, oh baby bye and bye
That's why I've waited so doggone long, yeah
Can't you see how happy I am because my man is comin' home?

So now here I'll be by the railroad track
Oh, waitin' for my baby
He's comin' back, comin' back to me on the 503
Yeah, and it won't be long, no it won't be long

I ain't had no lovin' since you know when
He's a lone old rooster and I'm a lonesome hen
That's why I'm sure when the whistle blows
Ooh, that it won't be long, no it won't be long

I'm so excited my knees are shakin', yeah
Mr. Engineer don't you keep me waitin'
Hear me tellin' you hurry, hurry
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry

Baby, here I am on the railroad track
Ooh, waitin' for my baby, he's comin' back
Comin' back to me on the 503, yeah

That it won't be long, no it won't be long
I know, oh when the whistle blows
That it won't be long, no it won't be long

Walkin' After Midnight lyrics - eva cassidy

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight just like we used to do
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you

I stop to see a weepin' willow cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy and night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight just hopin' you may be
Somewhere walkin' after midnight searchin' for me

I stop to see a weepin' willow cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy and night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight just hopin' you may be
Somewhere walkin' after midnight searchin' for me

Early One Morning lyrics - Eva Cassidy

[Chorus:]
In the early morning rain with
a dollar in my hand
And an aching in my heart
And my pockets full of sand
I'm a long way from home
And I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain
With no place to go

Out on runway number 9
Big 707 set to go
But I'm stuck here on the ground
Where the cold winds blow
Your can't jump a jet plane like
you can a freight train
So I best be on my way in
the early morning rain

Hear her mighty engines roar
See the silver bird on high
She's away and
westward bound far
above my home she'll fly
Where the morning rain don't fall
And the sun always shines
She'll be flying past my home
In about 3 hours time

[Chorus]

A Bold Young Farmer lyrics - Eva Cassidy

A bold young farmer courted me
He stole my heart and my liberty
He stole my heart without free good will
And I must confess that I love him still

I wish I wish but it's all in vain
I wish I was a maid again
But a maid again I never can be
Since such a young fellow lies still by me

There sits a bird in yonder tree
Some say he's blind and cannot see
And I wish it was the same with me
Before I took up with your company

I wish my babe so tiny was born
And smiling on his father's knee
And I poor girl was dead and gone
With the green grass growing2 all over me

Oh dig my grave dig long and deep
Place a marble stone on my head and feet
And on my heart will snow my dove
To let the world know that I died for love

If I Give My Heart lyrics - Eva Cassidy

If I give my heart to you tonight,
will you still be by my side.
Or will you be gone, with the morning sun;
Like a restless bird in fly.

Take me in your arms,
and let the love you see,
Wash away your sorrows.
Let the morning be ours too keep.

and If I should tell you of a love that I had,
will you still be there for me.
or will you away to a faded love,
searching for freedoms game.

Take me in your arms,
and let the love you see,
wash away your sorrows.
Let the morning be ours to keep.

Take me in your arms,
and let the love you see,
wash away your sorrows.
Let the morning be ours to keep.

If I give my heart to you tonight,
will you still be by my side.
or will you be gone,
with the morning sun.
Like a bird who yearns to fly.

Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain lyrics - Eva cassidy

In the twilight glow I see
Blue eyes crying in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we'd never meet again

Love is like a dying ember
And only memories remain
And through the ages I'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Someday soon we'll meet up yonder
And we'll walk hand in hand again
And through the ages I'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Summertime lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton's high
Your dad is rich and your mom's good looking
So hush little baby, baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But till that morning there ain't nothing can harm you
With daddy and mommy, mommy standing by

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But till that morning there ain't nothing can harm you
With daddy and mommy, mommy standing by
So hush little baby, baby don't you cry

Somewhere lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Is time my redeemer?
Loneliness my only friend?
Just once in a lifetime
Strangers share a common end
And I like an arrow
Straight for love I went again
And you like tomorrow
Never knowing where an when.

Somewhere, somehow
At sometime someone cared
Maybe just for a moment
Or maybe for a lifetime
Are the threads that bind us together
Falling loose or growing stronger?
Look at it now, look at the picture
Has it changed or is it still the same?

Hear, hear, hear, hear...

Drowning In The Sea Of Love lyrics - Eva Cassidy

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love
I've been out here for so very long
I've lost all my direction
Baby, when you came my way
I thought I had found my protection
But a strong wind came into my life
It surely took me by surprise
I can't seem to control these tears
That are falling from my eyes
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love
Sea of love
Baby, I depended on you
For our love navigation
Now you've gone and deserted me
Can't you see that I'm in desperation
I'm in the middle of a bad love storm
Ooh yeah I wasn't ready for
I look around and all I can see
Is water pouring over me
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love

I've been out here for so very long
I've lost all my direction
Baby, when you came my way
I thought I had found my protection
But a strong wind came into my life
It surely took me by surprise
I can't seem to control these tears
That are falling from my eyes
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love
Drowning in the sea of love

True Colors lyrics - Eva Cassidy

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness there inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
See your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy, can't remember when I last saw you laugh
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
See your true colors
That's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Ohhhh
I can't remember when I last saw you laugh
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
See your true colors
That's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

The Water Is Wide lyrics - Eva Cassidy

The water is wide I can not get o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row my love and I

O love is handsome and love is fine
And love's a jewel when it's first new
But love grows old then waxes gold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship it's sailing the sea
It's loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

The water is wide I can not get o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row my love and I
And both shall row my love and I

Hallelujah I Love Him So lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Let me tell you 'bout a boy I know
He's my baby and he lives next door
And every morning when the sun comes up
He brings me coffee in my favorite cup
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so

When I call him on the telephone
And tell him that I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear him knockin' on my door
In the evenin' when the sun goes down
And there is nobody else around
He kisses me and he holds me tight
And whispers "Baby, everything is alright"
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so

When I call him on the telephone
And tell him that I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear him knockin' on my door
In the evenin' when the sun goes down
And there is nobody else around
He kisses me and he holds me tight
And whispers "Baby, everything is alright"
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so
Yeah, Hallelujah, I just love him so
Oh, Hallelujah, I just love him so

God Bless The Child lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible said and it still is news
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own
Who's got his own

Yes, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own
Who's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
Hanging round your door
Then it's gone, and the money ends
They don't come around no more
Rich relations give
Crust of bread and such
You can help yourself baby
Oh don't you take too much
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own
Who's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
Hanging round your door
Then it's gone, and the money ends
They don't come around no more
Rich relations give
Crust of bread and such
You can help yourself baby
Oh don't you take too much
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own

Dark Eyed Molly lyrics - eva cassidy

Deep and dark are my true love's eyes,
Blacker still is the winter's turning,
As the sadness of parting proves.
And brighter now is the lantern burning
That lightens my path to love.

No fiddle tune will take the air,
But I will see his swift feet dancing
And the swirl of his dark brown hair,
His smiling face and his dark eyes glancing
As we stepped out Blinkbonny Fair.

And if my waiting prove in vain,
Then I will pack and track ever take me.
The long road will ease my pain.
No jewel of mankind would ever make me
Whisper love's words again.

For in drink I'll seek good company,
My ears will ring with the tavern's laughter,
And I'll hear not his last sweet sigh.
And who's to know in the morning after
How I long for his dear dark eyes
How I long for his dear dark eyes
How I long for his dear dark eyes

American Tune lyrics - Eva cassidy

Many's the time I've been mistaken
And many times confused
Many's the time I've been forsaken
And certainly abused
But it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
When I think of another working day
I've just got to get some rest
I've got to get some rest

I don't know a soul who's not been battered
Don't have a friend who feels at ease
Don't know a dream that's not been shattered
Or driven to its knees
Oh but it's all right, it's all right
We've lived so well so long
And when I think of the road we've travelled on
So far away from home
So far away from home

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
In a dream I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hour
And we sing an American tune
Oh but it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
And when I think of another working day
I've just got to get some rest
I've got to get some rest

It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) lyrics - Eva Cassidy

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah
Makes no difference
If it's cool or hot
Cause you just got to give that rhythm
Everything you've got

Well it makes no difference
If it's cool or hot
Cause you just got to give that rhythm
Everything you've got
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah

Yesterday lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Oh yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the girl I used to be.
There is a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why he had to go, I don't know,
He wouldn't say.
Oh I said some things wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why he had to go, I don't know,
He wouldn't say.
I said some things wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

You Take My Breath Away lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away

You watch my love grow like a child
Sometimes gentle and sometimes wild
Sometimes you just take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away

Your beauty is there in all I see
And when I feel your eyes on me
Oh don't you know you just take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

It Doesn't Matter Anymore lyrics - Eva Cassidy

There you go and baby, here am I.
Well, you left me here so I could sit and cry.
GOLLY gee, what have you done to me?
BUT I guess it doesn't matter any more

Do you remember baby, last September
How you held me tight, each and every night
Oh baby, how you drove me crazy
WELL I guess it doesn't matter any more

There AIN'T no use in me a-cryin'.
'CAUSE I've done everything and I'm sick of tryin'.
I've thrown away my nights,
Wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way, BABY, and I'll go mine
Now and forever till the end of time
AND I'll find somebody new and baby, we'll say we're through

And you won't matter anymore

There AIN'T no use in me a-cryin'.
'CAUSE I've done everything and now I'm sick of tryin'.
I've thrown away my nights,
Wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way, BABY, and I'll go mine
Now and forever till the end of time
AND I'll find somebody new and baby, we'll say we're through

YOU WON'T MATTER ANYMORE

YOU WON'T MATTER ANYMORE

YOU WON'T MATTER ANYMORE.

And you won't matter anymore

Fever lyrics - Eva Cassidy



Never know how much I love you, you never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me, I get a feeling that I just can't bear
You give me fever, when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning, fever all through the night.

Bless my soul I love you, take this heart away
Take these arms I never use them
And just believe what my lips have to say
You give me fever, when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning, fever all through the night

Listen to me baby, hear every word I say
No one can love you the way I do
Because they don't know how to love you my way
You give me fever, when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning, fever all through the night

The sun lights up the daytime, the moon lights up at night
My eyes light up when you call my name,
Because I know you're gonna treat me right
You give me fever, when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning, fever all through the night.
You give me fever, you give me fever, oh yeah,
Fever all through the night

Who Knows Where The Time Goes? lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Across the evening sky,all the birds are leaving
Oh but then you know, it was time for them to go
By the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I do not count the time
for who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
Sad,deserted shore
your fickle friends are leaving
oh, but then you know it was time for them to go
But I will still be here
I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time
for who knows where the time goes?
I know I'm not alone
while my love is near me
I know that its so until its time to go
All the storms in Winter and the birds in Spring again
I do not count the time
For who knows where the time goes?
who knows where the time goes?
who knows where the time goes?

You've Changed lyrics - Eva Cassidy

You've changed
That sparkle in your eyes is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
It's all over now
You've changed

You've changed
Your kiss is now are so blase
You're bored with me in every way
You're breaking my heart
You've changed

You've forgotten the words
I love you
Each memory that we've shared
You ignore every star above you
I can't realise that you ever cared

You've changed
You're not the angel I once knew
No need to tell me that we're through
It's all over now
You've changed

You've forgotten the words
I love you
Each memory that we've shared
You ignore every star above you
I can't realise that you ever cared

You've changed
That sparkle in your eyes is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
It's all over now
You've changed

Yeas It's over now
You've changed

Imagine lyrics - Eva Cassidy

Imagine there's no heaven.
It's easy if you try.
No hell below us,
Above us only sky.

Imagine all the people,
Living for today.

Imagine there's no countries.
It isn't hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion too.

Imagine all the people,
Living life in peace. yu-huh.

You may say that I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Imagine no possessions.
I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man.

Imagine all the people,
Sharing all the world. yu-huh.

You may say that I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope some day,
You'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

You may say that I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope some day,
You'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
