This week we are featuring duets. Thanks, Hugh, for providing the prompt!

I like both of these artists, and when they got together to do this song, it was one of my favorites. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this was a peaceful world.

John Mellencamp – Peaceful World Lyrics

Come on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is as cool as can be
In a peaceful worldPeople know this world is a wreck
We’re sick and tired of being politically correct
If I see through it now but I didn’t at first
The hypocrites made it worse and worse
Lookin’ down their noses at what people say
These are just words and words are okay
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the wayCome on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful worldRacism lives in the U.S. today
Better get hip to what Martin Luther King had to say
I don’t want my kids being brought up this way
Hatred to each other is not okay
Well I’m not a preacher just a singer son
But I can see more work to be done
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the wayCome on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

The money’s good and the work is okay
Looks like everything is rollin our way
“Til you gotta look the devil in the eye
You know that bastard’s one big lie
So be careful with your heart and what you love
Make sure that it was sent from above
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the way

Come on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

Lay back the top and ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah

These two songs are a couple of my favorites. We all like them here, and tend to sing along when we hear them, really belting them out! So  much fun!

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on
You do something to me that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
And every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha
From one love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

I can’t live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing when you got no one
And you walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that won’t happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah ha
From love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

Wrote my whole life down in an old book,
Songs about you and me.
Been singing to every soul in Tennessee.
Nobody seems to listen,
No one ever smiles the way that you do.
So I guess you never hear me on the radio,
And I’d give up this crazy dream of mine to hold you once more.

Won’t you meet me in Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

I left home for Hollywood.
Lookin’ for a part to play.
Well you always said I had such a pretty face.
But, I guess I’m not that pretty,
‘Cause no one looks at me the way you do.
Well you’ll always be a movie star to me.
Darlin’ now I guess it’s time that I let go of that dream.

Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

Well were stuck here in these hills that they call mountains.
Darlin’ back home in your arms is right where I want to be.
Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

In Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life that I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.
