Subject: Lyr Add: THE SUN IS BURNING (Ian Campbell)
From: Ebbie
Date: 15 Nov 04 - 01:03 PM

Here's one I can't sing.

The Sun Is Burning
Written by Ian Campbell
Recorded by Kate Wolf

The sun is burning in the sky,
Strands of clouds go slowly drifting by
In the park the dreamy bees are droning in the flowers among the trees
And the sun burns in the sky

Now the sun is in the west.
Tiny babes lay down to take their rest
And the couples in the park are holding hands and waiting for the dark
And the sun is in the west

Now the sun is sinking low,
Children at play know it's time to go
High above a spot appears, a little blossom blooms and then draws near
And the sun is sinking low

Now the sun is come to earth,
Shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death
Death comes in a blinding flash of hellish heat and leaves a sea of ash
And the sun has come to earth

Now the sun has disappeared
All that's left is darkness, pain and fear
Twisted, sightless wrecks of men go crawling on their knees and cry in pain
And the sun has disappeared

CAROLINA PINES
(Kate Wolf)

Just an old house with the roof fallin' in
Standin' on the edge of the field
Watching the crops grow like its always done before
Nobody lives here anymore

The sun's going down on the Carolina pines
I'm a long way from home
I miss that love of mine broken windows empty doors
Nobody lives here anymore
Old memories come whistli
ng like the wind
Through the walls and the cracked window panes
And the grass is growing high around the kitchen door
Nobody lives here anymore

Once there were children and a few hired hands
A hard working woman and a bone tired man
Now that old sun steals across a dusty floor
Nobody lives here anymore


Needs some work

WE STILL SURVIVE
(Kate Wolf)

We lost one to the bottle
We lost one to the plague
The one who left for Mexico
We never saw again
We lost one after Vietnam
Whose mind just didn't mend
We lost one to the grace of God
And one more to the wind
After all this time
We still survive
In our hearts together
Alone in our lives
One became a dreamer
One became a clown
One of us took everything
That wasn't fastened down
One became a fountain
One burned like a flame
One of us broke every rule
And never was betrayed
Some of us left memories
Some of [us] left pain
Some of us cried and then
Learned to laugh again
Some of us kept going
One of us stood still
Some of us left legacies
Others left a will

These Times We're Living In
Kate Wolf

Down by the river the water’s runnin’ low
As I wander underneath the trees
In the park outside of town
The leaves turned brown and yellow now
Are falling on the groundRemembering the way you felt
Beside me here when love was new
That feeling’s just grown stronger
Since I fell in love with youNow we’ve only got these times we’re living in
We’ve only got these times we’re living in
Winter wood piled on the porch
Walnuts scattered on the ground
And wood smoke risin’ to the sky
An old man comes home from work
And he hugs his wife in a sweat-stained shirt
Walks hrough that door to
Where it’s warm insideAnd I’m walking as the wind
Rustles in the fallen leaves
My footsteps picking out a tune
My heart sings silentlyNow we’ve only got these times we’re living in
We’ve only got these times we’re living in
See the roses dried and faded
The tall trees carved and painted
With long forgotten lovers’ names
Old cars standing empty
And dogs barking at me
As I walk through the quiet streets the sameIf I could I’d tell you now
There are no roads that do not bend
And the days like flowers bloom and fade
And they do not come againWe’ve only got these times we’re living in
We’ve only got these times we’re living in

Subject: ADD: Here in California (Kate Wolf)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 13 Aug 20 - 12:11 AM

Here in California - Kate Wolf

When I was young, my mama told me
She said, "Child, take your time
Don't fall in love too quickly
Before you know your mind"

She held me 'round the shoulders
In a voice so soft and kind
She said, "Love can make you happy
And love can rob you blind"

Here in California
The fruit hangs heavy on the vine
There's no gold, I thought I'd warn ya
And the hills turn brown in the summertime

Now I may learn to love you
But I can't say when
This morning we were strangers
And tonight we're only friends
But I'll take my time to know you
I'll take my time to see
There's nothing that I won't show you
If you take your time with me

Here in California
The fruit hangs heavy on the vine
There's no gold, I thought I'd warn ya
And the hills turn brown in the summertime

It's an old familiar story
An old familiar rhyme
To everything there is a season
To every purpose there's a time

A time to love and come together
A time we look longs for a name
A time for questions we can't answer
But we ask them just the same

Here in California
The fruit hangs heavy on the vine
There's no gold, I thought I'd warn ya
And the hills turn brown in the summertime
There's no gold, I thought I'd warn ya
And the hills turn brown in the summertime

Need lyrics for Eyes of a Painter


Gray-haired and flint-eyed, his sunburned face lined
Grandpa was a man of few words
He had a way of not wanting to say
Any more than he thought would be heard
The long years of living, day-to-day giving
Had carved out a map on his face
With little to lose, he’d learned how to choose
And his choices were easy to trace
He had the eyes of a painter
Heart of a maker of songs
His words fell like rain on the dry desert plain
Precious and so quickly gone
From a long line of teachers, white Baptist preachers
He was born with an Indian will
His quiet dark eyes, reading the light
As he rode in the low Osage hills
His school was the prairie, the sage, the wild berry
The quail, the wide open sky
The cottonwood thicket by the slow rolling river
The Redbud and the hot cattle drive
He had the eyes of a painter
Heart of a maker of songs
His words fell like rain on the dry desert plain
Precious and so quickly gone
There were days filled with thinking, nights with the drinking
For a lost love that raged like a storm
Oh, but how his eyes smiled, when he’d talk to a child
The rough hands so gentle and warm
His strong arms were brown, where the long sleeves
Rolled down, on his faded blue cotton shirt
When times got hard, he’d go out in the yard
And he'd cuss away some of his hurt
He had the eyes of a painter
Heart of a maker of songs
His words fell like rain on the dry desert plain
Precious and so quickly gone
Now the garden’s grown dusty, hand axe lies rusty
The door’s banging hard in the wind
Grandpa’s store is closed down, like most of the town
And it won’t be open again
And the big white car, sits out in the yard
Of the house he built solid and true
Oh, but I see his eyes, burning tonight
Like the stars in the sky he once knew
He had the eyes of a painter
Heart of a maker of songs
His words fell like rain on the dry desert plain
Precious and so quickly gone
His words fell like rain on the dry desert plain
Precious and so quickly gone

I am not a big fan Kate Wolf. I liked her as a performer and I liked her voice and especially her back up musicians. I just found most of her songs too cosmic for my tastes. That said, when she wrote a song I liked I really liked it. Trumpet Vine, Carolina Pines, Eyes of a Painter, Great Divide are four. And I can't argue with her skill at phrasing and pacing. Read through the lyrics to Eyes of a Painter and this should be obvious. It is a sad thing she left us so long ago. I wouldn't have minded another Trumpet Vine to listen to.
