This Wheel Of Sorrow

 Those who love, and those who cry;  are the same most of the time;  They give themselves and then they find;--That they are only borrowed.

And I know, that only fools, ever try, but I still do:  Wont you be a rock for me , and break this wheel of sorrow.

Wheel of sorrow weighs me down;  takes my faith and spins me around.  Wont you be a rock for me, and break this wheel of sorrow.

 Don’t say love,  if what you mean, is to spend a night with me;  and then be here today, and then be gone tomorrow.

What I need, is not so fast;  but to make love and make it last;  Wont you be a rock for me, and break this wheel of sorrow.

                                                  Going Back To Pea Ridge

 1. The city comes down on me like a bad dream, down like winter rain;

And I know that nothings gonna grow in these cement streets again;

I’m going back to Pea Ridge; Leave the city far behind,--and rest my back on the front porch while the scenery rests my mind.

 Cho. Where the crickets go off at seven o’clock, and the bull frogs start at nine;

Where lightning bugs are busy, flashing their bug sign;-----

Doo doo doo, Doo doo doo, Doo doo doo de doo doo;

And a country woman’s heart beats next to mine.

 2.  Spending my time down in the city, down in the factory;

Working all day for a hand full of money, wishing that I could breathe;

(Well, I’m going back to Pea Ridge-------------------------------------)

                                           You Can Share My Blanket

 1. When you say you love me I don’t know what you mean; but it seems that I should;  So if I say I’m bruised and torn, and other loves have worn me;  You wont mind if this one is for good.

 Ref.  I don’t know if I can take it; if we can really make it; I’ve never known a love without an end. But if you really think we can, then you can share my blanket;  And we’ll  see what happens then.

 2. When your coat falls from your shoulders in a heap upon the floor, and the door behind is closed;  I don’t know if I can stand it, it’s an awful lot to handle; Taking scraps from all the things I know

 3.  When you say you love me I don’t know what to say, I’m afraid to go along;        Unable to be certain, afraid that you might hurt me; Afraid that I might turn and    you’d be gone.
