THE LONG BLACK VEIL NIGHTINGALE PART OF THE SCENERY
AIN'T GOT YOU COME TOGETHER DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT
DREAMIN' SWEET LITTLE ROCK N' ROLLER






The Long Black Veil
By: M. Wilkens & D. Dill
          

Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me

The judge said son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word, thou it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

          
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But late at night, when the north wind blows
In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But late at night, when the north wind blows
In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones


NIGHTINGALE
(McCafferty, Sweet, Charlton, Agnew)
1975 Nazareth(Dunfermline)Ltd.

Sings a sad song for lonely women
Sings about women to lonely men
Sings a peace song to a soldier
Sings about loneliness to a friend

Sheís a song, song singer
Let her music touch your heart
Sheís a song singer from her heart

Sings a melody to haunt you
And some words to make you cry
If youíre sad sheíll make you happy
When youíre down sheíll take you high

Sheís a song, song singer
Let her music touch your heart
Sheís a song singer from her heart

Sheís a song, song singer
Let her music touch your heart
Sheís a song singer from her heart

Sheís a song, song singer
Let her music touch your heart
Sheís a song singer from her heart



PART OF THE SCENERY
Billy Rankin
1984 A&M Records Inc.

Countdownís starting, now the goinís  gettiní rough
I give you my loviní, but I guess it ainít enough
Once upon a time you were proud I was your man
Now your low on  affection and I get it when I can
When your friends all visit and they see me cominí through
Thereís a voice from the crowd sayiní ďWho the hell are you?Ē
Iím just a part of the scenery here with you
A thorn in your rose, kinda spoiliní the view
Iím part of the scenery. Whatcha gonna do about me?

Wanna be strong, try to put you in your place
I show a little love, get the sand in my face
I try to get up, always something goiní down
Caught in the middle of your merry go round

The wise men say I should leave well alone
But the same wise men just call when you are home
Iím just a part of the scenery here with you
A thorn in your rose, kinda spoiliní the view
Iím part of the scenery. Whatcha gonna do about me?
About....

The wise men say I should leave well alone

About me......

AINíT GOT YOU

I got a Maseratti two by two
With snakeskin upholstery
Charge account at Goldblatz
But I ainít got you
I got a closet full of clothes
And no matter where I goes
You keeps a ring in my nose
But I ainít got you
I got a tavern, a liquor store
I play the numbers, 444
I got mojo donít you know
Iím all dressed up with no place to go
I got women to the right of me
I got women to the left of me
I got women all around me
But I ainít got you, no I ainít got you
I got a tavern, and a liquor store
I play the numbers, 444
I got mojo donít you know
But I ainít got you
No, I ainít got you
No, I ainít got you
No, I ainít got you

COME TOGETHER
(Lennon/McCartney)as performed by Nazareth

Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knees
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT

What you gonna do if the fashion changes
Have you got a good song, can you go on
Will you be so strong you can rearrange it
Will you still have the thought to rely on
Will you cut your hair, do you dye it yellow
Are you still the right flavor to be tasted
Will you have your name in the Sunday papers
Do you tell them you are straight or get wasted
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Did you ever think when you picked the front line
Are you gonna back up on your promises
Did you tell the folks you could make the changes
Are you gonna play it different than the last one
You got the address and you got the power
Are you gonna use it right or abuse it
Taking all the trust that you know youíre given
Are you gonna play the game or just lose it
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you have the looks
Do you have the profile
Do you have your fingerprints or a record
If they come to you for some information
Looking for a secret would you sell one
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do
Do you think about it, do you think about it
Do you think about it, Iíll bet you do

DREAMINí

Dreaminí
I saw a spirit in the sky
Iím dreaminí
Dreaming away again
I felt a cold wind rushing in
And carry me up high
Far above the maddening crowd I fly
Itís so exciting
Electrifying
And I can see thereís no dreams

Dreaminí
I saw a strange light in the sky
Iím dreaminí
Dreaming away again

I felt this power touching me
Reeliní in my lies
Visions came,
My heart began to rise
Itís so exciting
Electrifying
I feel the sun is in my dreams

Iíve seen the wild side of city lights
Walked the streets where the lightning strikes
Iíve heard the thunder and I know
But Iíve never had such feelings before
In my dreams
Dreaminí away again
Dreaminí away again
Dreaminí
I saw a spirit in the sky
Iím dreaming
I saw a strange light in the sky
Iím dreaming
I saw a shadow passing by
Iím dreaming
Dreaminí away again
Iím dreaming
Dreaminí away again
Dreaminí
Dreaminí away again
Dreamin.......

SWEET LITTLE ROCK AND ROLLER
By: Chuck Berry as done by Nazareth

Nineteeen years old and as sweet as she can be
Dressed up like a downtown Christmas tree
Dancin' and hummin' a rock-roll melody
She's the daughter of a well-respected man
Who taught her how to judge and understand
Soon she became a rock-roll music fan
Sweet little rock and roller, sweet little rock and roller
Papa don't have to scold her, says he can't hardly hold her
She never gets any older, sweet little rock and roller
Should've seen her eyes when the band began to play
Famous singers sang and barred away
Stars performed, she screamed and yelled "Hooray!"
Ten thousand eyes were watching her leave the floor
Five thousand tongues were screaming out "More! More!"
About fifteen hundred waitin' outside the door
Sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
Papa don't have to scold her, says he can't hardly hold her
She never gets any older, sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
Sweet little rock and roller
