It's Over

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

Your baby doesn't love you anymore

Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby won't be near you anymore
Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn't want you anymore it's over

It breaks your heart in two to know she's been untrue
But oh what will you do then she said to you
There's someone new we're through we're through
It's over it's over it's over

All the rainbows in the sky
Start to weep then say goodbye
You won't be seeing rainbows anymore
Setting stars before they fall
Echo to you that's all that's all
But you'll see lonely sunset after all
It's over it's over it's over it's over

Blue Bayou

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I feel so bad I've got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou

Saving nickels saving dimes
Working till the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day come what may to Blue Bayou
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on Blue Bayou
All those fishing boats with their sails afloat if I could only see
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes how happy I'd be

Go to see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Oh that girl of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide
Oh some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside

I'll never be blue my dreams come true
On Blue Bayou

Indian Wedding

Roy Orbison

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

There once was an Indian brave by the name of Yellow Hand
He fell in love with a maiden known as White Sand
They vowed their love would last forever more
Then came the day that they had waited for

Yellow Hand brought her a golden feather
White Sand said a prayer for good weather
The ceremonial dance grew loud and strong
Then Yellow Hand began their wedding song

(Ooooh...)

Tonight tonight we will be one
We'll walk in the land of the midnight sun
Oh White Sand come hold my lonely hand

Then they left the warmth of the wedding fire
Rode into the hills climbing higher
And suddenly the snow came swirling down
They were lost the trail could not be found

(Ooooh...)

Tonight tonight we will be one...

They never returned from paradise
They went to their places in the sky
And the old ones still say when the snowflakes fly
If you'll listen close you'll hear him cry

(Ooooh...)

Tonight tonight we will be one...

Falling

Roy Orbison

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I'm falling I'm falling falling in love with you

Baby come closer closer to me
And listen listen so carefully
Remember all the nights that I told you I love you
It wasn't true I used you and you were just someone new
To thrill this lonely heart of mine I was lying all the time
Pretending to be falling in love with you

But it's different now I've kissed you now
So forgive me forgive me somehow
Hold me tight for tonight then tell me truth
If you still love me say that you love me don't leave me now
Now that I'm falling for you

I'm falling I'm falling falling in love
Falling in love with you

Working For The Man

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

Hey now you better listen to me everyone of you
We've got a lotta lotta lotta lotta work to do
Forget about your women and that water can
Today we're working for the man

Well pick up your feet we've got a deadline to meet
I'm gonna see you make it on time
Oh don't relax I want elbows and backs
I wanna see everybody from behind

Cause you're working for the man you're working for the man
You gotta make him a hand you're working for the man

So I'm picking 'em up and I'm laying 'em down
I believe he's gonna work me into the ground
I pull to the left I heave to the right
I oughta kill him but it wouldn't be right

Cause I'm working for the man a working for the man
I gotta make him a hand a working for the man

Well the boss man's daughter sneaks me water
Everytime her daddy's down the line
She says meet me tonight love a me right
And everything is gonna be fine
So I slave all day without much pay
Cause I'm just abidin' my time
Cause the company and the daughter you see
They're both gonna be all mine

Yeah I'm gonna be the man I'm gonna be the man
Gotta make him a hand if I'm gonna be the man
A working for the man working for the man
I gotta make him a hand a working for the man

Pretty Paper

Willie Nelson

© Pamper Music,BMI

(Oh pretty paper pretty ribbons of blue)

Pretty paper pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded street busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by

Should you stop better not much too busy
You're in a hurry my how time does fly
In the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper pretty ribbons of blue...

In Dreams

Roy Orbison

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

A candy colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep everything is all right

I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the magic night I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine all of the time
We're together in dreams in dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it I can't help it if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams in beautiful dreams

Leah

Roy Orbison

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

Hey Leah Leah hey Leah Leah
Here I go from the hut to the boat to the sea for Leah

Uh I gotta go diving in the bay
Gotta get a lot of oysters find some pearls today
To make a pretty necklace for Leah Leah

I gotta go deep and find the ones just right
I'll bet my Leah will be surprised tonight
I'll place the pearls around the only girl for me Leah

But something's wrong I cannot move around
My leg is caught it's pulling me down
But I'll keep my hands shut tight for if they find me
They'll find the pearl for Leah

And now it's over I'm awake at last
Old heartaches and mem'ries from the past
It was just another dream about my lost love bout Leah

Hey Leah Leah hey Leah Leah
Here I go back to sleep and in my dreams I'll be with Leah
Leah Leah

Borne On The Wind

Roy Orbison - Bill Dees

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

Borne on the wind borne on the wind
Between the sunset and the dawn
So tenderly your memory
Lingers with me on and on

Born on the wind born on the wind
You are still with me it seems
A life to live a love to give
And you will live in my dreams

You don't love me
But you love for me to be in love with you
You led me on lured me on
But when I fell you were gone

Born on the wind born on the wind
Now a song in my heart
A soft refrain you will remain
To live in my heart again

Born on the wind borne on the wind
Born on the wind
