IT'S WORTH BELIEVIN'

There's a warm wind tonight
And the moon turns the tide
When the stars take their ride
She'll be leavin'
Where she goes, I don't know
She won't tell me what it is
That makes her act like this
But I've got a funny feelin' that it's me
It's worth believin'

Should I ask
Do you like to go walking on the shore
And listen to the sea
Or could it be someone kind
Could it be that I'm the fool
There's somethin' wrong with you
And I've got a funny feelin' that it's me
It's worth believin'

There's a breeze from the shore
And the waves overlap
When I've called in the cat
She'll go walkin'
And she cries to herself
In the night when I'm asleep
She lies awake and weeps
Could it be someone new
Some old who has returned
Or is it just a game
But I've got a funny feelin' that it's me
It's worth believin'

There's a warm wind tonight
And the moon turns the tide
When the stars take their ride
She'll be leavin'
Where she goes, I don't know
She won't tell me what it is
That makes her act like this
But I've got a funny feelin' that it's me
It's worth believin'

I hope this will help. Enjoy.

TEN DEGREES AND GETTING COLDER-Gordon Lightfoot

INTRO: D G A D
 D
He was standing by the highway
D
With a sign that just said "mother"
D
When he heard a driver coming
E A
About a half a mile away,

D
So he held the sign up higher
D
So no decent soul could miss it.
D
It was ten degrees or colder
A D
Down by Boulder Dam that day.

D
He was raised up in Milwaukee
D
Though he never was that famous.
D
He was just a road musician.
E A
To the taverns he would go,

D
Singing songs about the rambling,
D
The loving girls and gambling.
D
How the world fell on his shoulder,
A D
Back in Boulder, I don't know.

D
It was out in Arizona,
D
And he heard the lady listening
D
To each word that he was singing,
E A
To each line that he would write,

D
So he sat down by her table
D
And they talked about the weather:
D
98.6 and rising
A D
Down by Boulder Dam that night.

G D
And she told him she would take him
A C G
For a ride in the morning sun.
G A
Back in Boulder, he had told her,
A C G
"I don't know when I've had a better friend."

D
Now he's traded off his Martin,
D
But his troubles are not over.
D
His feet are almost frozen
E A
And the sun is sinking low.

D
Won't you listen to me, brother?
D
If you loved your mother,
D
Please pull off on the shoulder
A D
If you're going Milwaukee way.

D
It's ten degrees and getting colder
A D
Down by Boulder Dam today.

From: Jim Dixon

Copied from http://www.corfid.com/gl/Albums/Cold_On_The_Shoulder/All_The_Lovely_Ladies.htm

ALL THE LOVELY LADIES
Gordon Lightfoot

All the lovely ladies in their finery tonight,
I wish that I could know them one by one.
All the handsome gentlemen with loving on their minds,
Strolling in to take the ladies home:
Bless you all and keep you on the road to tenderness.
Heaven can be yours just for now.

All the gentle strangers who by nature do not smile,
To everyone who cannot hold a pen,
To all you heavy rounders with a headache for your pains,
Who dread the thought of going 'round the bend:
Bless you all and keep you on the road to better things.
Heaven can be yours just for now.

To all the lovely ladies in their finery tonight,
I wish that I could kiss you while you knit.
To all the ones who learn to live with bein' second-guessed
Whose job it is to give more then to get:
Bless you all and keep you with the strength to understand.
Heaven can be yours just for now.

To all the little dreamers with a dream that cannot last,
To all the sleeping giants who must wake,
To every man who answers to the letter of the law,
And all the rest imprisoned by mistake:
Bless you all and keep you with the faith to let it pass.
Heaven can be yours just for now.

To all the lonely sailors who have trouble being seen,
To all of you with heartache that remains,
Maybe sometime later you might swim back into shore,
If someone could relieve you of your chains.
Bless you all and keep you all on the land or on the sea.
Heaven can be yours just for now.

[From "Cold on the Shoulder," 1975.]
