These are some lines at a local amusement park. The first is of railroad tracks that curve all around the park. You can ride the little train they have.

The second is a curvy little road where they have small cars that go along the track. Also in this photo is a blue fence that are made of metal lines.

There are so many great songs with this group of subjects, that I couldn’t pick just one. So, I’ve chosen two of my favorites.

The first one seems to be speaking of being able to read another person’s mind, being a ghost, and also about the ghosts of a lost relationship and why it went wrong.

“If You Could Read My Mind”, by Gordon Lightfoot, was released in 1970 from his album, “Sit Down Young Stranger”.

It was written by Gordon Lightfoot, and is on the Reprise label.

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
‘Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I’m a ghost that you can’t see
If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail
And you won’t read that book again
Because the ending’s just too hard to take I’d walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now love, let’s be real
* I never thought I could act this way *
And I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feelin’s gone
And I just can’t get it back If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
‘Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But stories always end
And if you read between the lines
You’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand
The feelin’s that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way
And I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feelin’s gone
And I just can’t get it back

This second song, I believe is talking about being reincarnated into different eras in history. Could be the same soul in all of them, and how they died, but also their soul lives on, coming back again and again.

Verse 1: Willie Nelson]
I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

[Verse 2: Kris Kristofferson]
I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still

[Verse 3: Waylon Jennings]
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado

I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around, I’ll always be around and around and around and
Around and around

I fly a star-ship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back

This is a painting I did a long time ago. I did look at picture I saw in a magazine when I sketched the outline of the things in the painting, Then I filled in with acrylic paint. It is on a round wood framed canvas.

It shows a German Shepherd puppy, brown & white. He is holding handcuffs in his mouth. Looks like he is in a child’s playroom, as there is a bed, partially shown, a toy black police car (the word police in red), a red toy box, and some wooden blocks.

The background wall is light blue, and the shag rug is a darker blue.

Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling

Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/8/17

***

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is for songs about traveling. Thanks for hosting and the prompts, Helen!

***

There are lots of songs having to do with traveling. I, of course wanted to post a bunch, but chose this one. It has an interesting history.

First written by Australian, Geoff  Mack, back in 1959, this song has been covered many times by many artists. Some covers changed the words and locations mentioned to reflect their own country’s town and city names. There is a version for Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, North America, and many more.

“I’ve Been Everywhere”, by Johnny Cash, can be found on his 1996 album, “The Legend of Johnny Cash”. It is on the American/Sony/IDJ labels.

The lyrics are on the video.
