Death Of A Clown

My makeup is dry and it clags on my chin
I'm drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
The lions they won't fight and the tigers won't roar

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
So let's all drink to the death of a clown
Won't someone help me to break up this crown
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
Let's all drink to the death of a clown

The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
And frantically looking for runaway fleas

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
So won't someone help me to break up this crown
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Love Me Till The Sun Shines

You don't have to look at me
You don't have to smile at me
You just have to love me till the sun shines
You don't have to cook for me
You don't have to laugh with me
You just have to love me till the sun shines

Take my money, I don't mind
You can be such a helpless kind[? ]
You just have to love me till the sun shines

You don't have to sleep with me
Or rest your head upon my knee
You just have to love me till the sun shines
Baby you can wear my clothes,
Play my records, stay at my home
Long as you just love me till the sun shines

You can take it, I don't mind
Please don't be such a helpless kind
You just have to love me till the sun shines

Baby, baby I don't know what I'm doing
Everything I do it turns to ruin[? ]

Baby you can kiss my friends
Baby there's nothing that I'll end[? ]
Long as you just love me till the sun shines
You don't have to walk the streets
When there's someone waiting here
Come on, baby, love me till the sun shines

Come on, baby, I don't mind
Two lonely people, the helpless kind[? ]
Come on, baby, love me till the sun shines

You don't have to look at me
You don't have to smile at me
You just have to love me till the sun shines
You don't have to cook for me
You don't have to laugh with me
You just have to love me till the sun shines

Take my money, I don't mind
You can be such a helpless kind[? ]
You just have to love me till the sun shines

Suzannah's Still Alive

Oh, Suzannah's bedraggled but she
Still wears the locket 'round her neck.
She's got a picture on the table
Of a man who is young and able.

Oh, Suzannah's gonna cry,
Oh, Suzannah's still alive.
Whiskey or gin, that's alright,
When there's nothing in her bed at night
She sleeps with the covers down,
Hopin' that somebody gets in.
Doesn't matter what she does,
She knows that she can't win.
Oh, Suzannah's gonna cry.

She's got a doll with one eye,
That always cries when she gets some sleep
She's waiting for a soldier to come home,
But she'll cry and never die.

Oh, Suzannah's gonna cry,
Oh, Suzannah's still alive.
Whiskey or gin, that's alright,
When there's nothing in her bed at night
She sleeps with the covers down,
Hopin' that somebody gets in.
Doesn't matter what she does,
She knows that she can't win.
Oh, Suzannah's still alive.

Oh, Suzannah's gonna cry,
Oh, Suzannah's still alive.
Oh, Suzannah's still alive.

Funny Face

You're walking 'round in my memory
That only gets stronger and stronger
Smudged mascara and pill-shaped eyes
Everything you want was bought with lies.

But what can I do about it
The say you won't last any longer
All the gates of love you won't walk through
The only gates you see are colored blue.

I see you peering through frosted windows
Eyes don't smile, all they do is cry
Funny face, she's all right
Funny face, she's all right
Funny face, she's all right

Oh how can I live without her
The doctors won't let me see her
But I can catch a glimpse through the doorway
Of the girl that I love and care for

I see you peering through frosted windows
Eyes don't smile, all they do is cry
Funny face, she's all right
Funny face, she's all right
Funny face, she's all right

Lincoln County

I've gotta get a train, take me back home again,
See my daddy, momma wants to see me too.
I'm gonna see my momma looking through the window
At the station in the morning, been a few mornings since I've been home.

I've been doing wrong but now I'm going home.
So come on girls, you better put your best boots on.
'Cause when I get home to Lincoln County,
Won't know which way to go, I'm gonna find all those pretty girls.
I'm gonna find them all.
'Cause when I get home to Lincoln County,
Gonna lift the lid off hell, drink some beer, I'm gonna live it swell[?].
Then I'm gonna shout for more.

Well, I bought a new suit at the best pawn broker's shop,
Bought my ticket from money that I saved in jail.
I got a boot lace tie, I got for my Pa,
I got a head scarf, fair, I got for my momma that she won't wear.

I've been doing wrong but now I'm going home.
So come on girls, you better put your best boots on.
'Cause when I get home to Lincoln County,
Won't know which way to go, I'm gonna find all those pretty girls.
I'm gonna find them all.
'Cause when I get home to Lincoln County,
Gonna lift the lid off hell, drink some beer, I'm gonna live it swell[?].
Then I'm gonna shout for more.

I've gotta get a train, take me back home again,
See my daddy, momma wants to see me too.

'Cause when I get me back to Lincoln County,
Gonna lift the lid off hell, drink some beer, I'm gonna live it swell[?].
Then I'm gonna shout for more.

There's No Life Without Love

Truly, oh truly,
There is nothing in this life without your love

This is a story of my true love,
There is no life without love,

Truly, oh truly,
There is nothing in this life without your love
Truly, oh truly,
There is nothing in this life without your love

There is no life without sunshine,
There is no rest without sleeping,

Truly, oh truly,
There is nothing in this life without your love
Truly, oh truly,
There is nothing in this life without your love

Hold My Hand

Today, when she comes in,
I'll be standing at the door, and I won't say any more.
I know that she's been there.
It's not the way I look at her, it's the way she looks at me.

Yes you can hold my hand any other night,
Hold my hand, it's gonna be all right.
Hold my hand any other night of the week,
It's all right.

Hold my hand any other night,
Hold my hand, it's gonna be all right.
Hold my hand any other night of the week,
It's all right.

Hold my hand.
Hold my hand.
Hold my hand.

When she lays on my bed,
It's not me she's thinking of, it's just me that really cares.
My time, I know is out,
And she'll be walking through that door,
And she'll lie again tomorrow night.

Yes you can hold my hand any other night,
Hold my hand, it's gonna be all right.
Hold my hand any other night of the week,
It's all right.

Hold my hand any other night,
Hold my hand, it's gonna be all right.
Hold my hand any other night of the week,
It's all right.

Hold my hand.
Hold my hand.
Hold my hand.
Hold my hand.

Creeping Jean

You're not leaving so descreet,
Just creeping out on me.
Your dizzy head, and smoky eyes,
You'll find some other's bed to sleep.
So don't look back, it is too late,
No story to be told.
This creepin' mess you left for me,
Promising that you'd be home.

You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.

Your dirty friends and underwear,
Keep hanging 'round my room.
The lonely pictures that you paint
Are creepin' to their doom.
So don't look back it is too late,
No story to be told.
These creepin' friends you left for me,
Saying your promise to be home.

You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
You don't know what I mean,
Creepin' Jean's a disease.
