Mother of Mine


Mother of mine you gave to me
All of my life to do as I please
I own everything I have to you
Mother sweet mother of mine.

Mother of mine when I was young
You showed me the right way
Things should be done
Without your love where would I be
Mother sweet mother of mine.

Mother you gave me happiness
Much more than words can say
I pray the lord that he may bless you
Every night and every day.

Mother of mine now I am grown
And I can walk straight all on my own
I'd like to give you what you gave to me
Mother sweet mother of mine.

ANNIE'S SONG

You fill up me senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again.


...Let me give my life to you
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Aw, John Denver....ah always thought it wis quite cool tae be called after a place....unless yer Belinda Carlisle of course...laugh.gif
Anne1
laugh.gif laugh.gif aw thank you melody that was nice
Java
Jist heard this and remembered how much ah like it...biggrin.gif

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that that makes sense

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

The Way We Were

Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water coloured memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time re-written every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me would we could we.

Memories, may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were.

maryhillgal
A couple of old songs we used to sing years ago.

TILL WE MEET AGAIN

Smile awhile, you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover's lane my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.

WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU

With someone like you a pal so good and true
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find
A place that's known to God alone
Just a spot to call our own
We'll find perfect peace, where joys will never cease
Out there beneath the cloudy skies
We'll build a sweet little nest somewhere in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.
Melody
Aw Maryhillgal, those were great brought back nice memories of family parties. smile.gif
Java
Ah watched a film called Dear Frankie (filmed in Glasgow and Greenock) last night and heard this one....never heard it before but it was lovely...

A Great White Horse

When I was a young girl I used to dream of a lover
To be my shining knight of strength one day
He'd carry me to a castle in the heavens
and battle all my dragons on the way
And he'd ride down on a great white horse
he'd bring me love I was longing for
He'd bring me joy and lasting peace
on a great white horse he'd ride away with me

When I was a young man I used to dream of a maiden
With long soft hair flowing in the wind
Her laughing eyes and loving arms would follow
When I'd sail around the world and back again
And I'd ride down on a great white horse I'd bring the love she was longing for
I'd bring her laughter and sunny days
And on a great white horse I'd carry her away

The time has flown I find there are no dragons
and I don't wanna sail the seven seas
Anywhere we are becomes our castle
and the only world I want is here with me
And we both ride on a great white horse
we found the love we were longing for
You're my sunshine on a rainy day
you're my April you're my May

BLESS THIS HOUSE

Bless this house, Oh Lord we pray
Make it safe by night and day
Bless these walls so firm and stout
Keeping want and trouble out

Bless the roof and chimneys tall
Let thy peace lie over all
Bless this door that it may prove
Ever open to joy and love

Bless these windows shining bright
Letting in God’s heavenly light
Bless the hearth, a-blazing there
With smoke ascending like a prayer

Bless the people here within
Keep them pure and free from sin
Bless us all that we may be
Fit Oh Lord to dwell with thee
Bless us all that we, one day, may dwell
Oh Lord, we pray
Elma
George, that was my grandfather's favourite and I love it too. They had a framed copy that was kept on the organ in the sitting room. I'm feeling all sentimental now smile.gif
maryhillgal
Thanks for "Bless this House" George. Haven't heard it in years - what lovely words.
Melody
Heavenly shades of night are falling, it's twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling, 'tis twilight time
When purple-colored curtains mark the end of day
I'll hear you, my dear, at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor as day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender the setting sun
I count the moments darling till you're here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
And, in the same and sweet old way I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
And, in the same and sweet old way I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time
Together at last at twilight time

Awwww. smile.gif
Melody
Sometimes ye just need cheerin' up sure ye do?
smile.gif All together now.

I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain
Third is the roses that grow in the lane

No need explaining, the one remaining
Is somebody I adore
I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before
smile.gif
Java

jakka13
Haven't heard this in ages and heard it twice today and two different singers ,

If you had not have fallen
I would not have found you ,
angel flying to close to the ground ,
and I patched up your broken wing
and hung around awhile
trying to keep your spirits up
and your fever down .

I knew some day
That you would fly away
for loves the greatest healer
to be found .
So leave me if you need to .
I will still remember
An angel flying to close to the ground .
So fly on fly on past the speed of sound ,
I'd rather see you up ,than see you down ,
So leave me if you need to .
I will still remember
An angel flying to close to the ground
maryhillgal
Wee Willie Nelson is the best at singing it.

on high with nothing to do
but to give to you as you give to me
love forever true
love forever true

for you and I have a guardian angel
on high with nothing to do
but to give you as you give to me
love forever true
love forever true

give me more true love oh yeah

Hey there, you with the stars in your eyes
Love never made a fool of you, you used to be too wise
Hey there, you on that high-flyin' cloud
Though he won't throw a crumb to you, you think some day he'll come to you

Better forget him, him with his nose in the air
He has you dancin' on a string, break it and he won't care

Won't you take this advice I hand you like a mother
Or are you not seein' things too clear
Are you too much in love to hear
Is it all goin' in one ear and out the other

Hey there, you with the stars in your eyes
Love never made a fool of you you used to be too wise

Will you take this advice I hand you like a mother
Or am I not seein' things too clear
Are you just too far gone to hear
Is it all goin' in one ear and out the other

wub.gif Ah can hear you all singing.

TAMMY BY DEBBIE REYNOLDS

I hear the cottonwoods whisperin' above
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.
The old hooty owl hooty hoots to the dove
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love

Does my lover feel what I feel when he comes near
My heart beats so joyfully, you'd think that he could hear

Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.


ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE BY VIC DAMONE

I have often walked down this street before
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before
All at once am I several stories high
Knowing I'm on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town
Does enchantment pour out of every door
No it's just on the street where you live.

And oh the towering feeling, just to know somehow you are near
The overpowering feeling, that any second you may suddenly appear.

People stop and stare they don't bother me
For there's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by I don't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live.

AROUND THE WORLD [WAS IT DICKIE VALENTINE OR RONNIE CARROLL WHO SUNG THIS]?

Around the world I've searched for you
I travelled on when hope was gone to keep a rendezvous
I knew somewhere, sometime, somehow
You'd look at me and I would see the smile you're smiling now

It might have been in County Down,
Or in New York, or Gay Paris or even London town
No more will I go all around the worl
For I have found my world in you.
Anne1
think it was Ronnie Carrol singing that one MHG Dickie Valentine The finger of suspicion
maryhillgal
Thanks Anne1 but it just dawned on me - it was Ronnie Hilton that sang it.
Isobel
