289. Greatest Hits
"Rock"
James Taylor

1. Something In The Way She Moves There's something in the way she moves
Or looks my way or calls my name
That seems to leave this troubled world behind

And if I'm feeling down and blue
Or troubled by some foolish game
She always seems to make me change my mind

And I feel fine anytime she's around me now
She's around me now almost all the time
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
She's been with me now quite a long long time
And I feel fine

Every now and then the things I lean on loose their meaning
And I find myself careering
Into places where I shouldn't let me go
She has the power to go where no one else can find me
Yes and to silently remind me
Of the happiness and good times that I know

It isn't what she's got to say
Or how she thinks or where she's been
To me the words are nice the way they sound

I like to hear them best that way
It doesn't much matter what they mean
But she says them mostly just to calm me down

And I feel fine anytime she's around me now
She's around me now almost all the time
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
She's been with me now quite a long long time
And I feel fine
2. Carolina In My Mind In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't youjust feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
It hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

Karen she's a silver sun
You best walk her way and watch it shinin'
Watch her watch the mornin' come
A silver tear appearing now I'm cryin'
Ain't I goin' to Carolina in my mind

There ain't no doubt it no ones mind
That loves the finest thing around
Whisper something warm and kind
And hey babe the sky's on fire, I'm Dyin'
Ain't I goin' to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
It hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

Dark and silent last last night
I think I might have heard the highway calling
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
Signs that might be omens say I going, going
I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

With a holy host of others standing 'round me
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
And it seems like it goes on like this forever
You must forgive me
If I'm up and gone to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
Ithit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind
3. Fire And Rain Just yesterday mornin' they let me know you were gone
Suzanne the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this mornin' and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
but I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me Jesus,
you'vegotta help me make a stand
You just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
I won't make it any other way.

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
but I always thought that I'd see you again

I've been walking my mind to an easy time
my back turned toward the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows
it'll turn your head around
Well there's hours of timeon the telephone line
to talk about things to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
but I always thought that I'd see you again
4. Sweet Baby James There is a young cowboy
He lives on the range.
His horse and his cattle
Are his only companions.
He works in the saddle
And he sleeps in the canyon,
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change.
As the moon rises
He sits by his fire,
Thinking 'bout women
And glasses of beer.
And closing his eyes
As the dogies retire,
He sings out a song
Which issoft but it's clear.
As if maybe someone could hear.

Good night youmoonlight ladies
Rock 'a bye sweet baby James.
Deep greens and blues
Are the colors I choose.
Won't you let me go down in my dreams?
And rock 'a bye sweet baby James.

Now the first of December
Was covered in snow.
So was the turnpike
>From Stockbridge to Boston.
Though the Berkshires
Seemed dreamlike
On account of that frosting.
With ten miles behind me
And ten thousand more to go.
There's a song that they sing
When they take to the highway
A song that they sing
When they take to the sea.
A song that they sing
Of their home in the sky.
Maybe you can believe it
If it helps you to sleep.
But singing works just fine for me.

Good night you moonlight ladies
Rock 'a bye sweet baby James.
Deep greens and blues
Are the colors I choose.
Won't you let me go down in my dreams?
And rock 'a bye sweet baby James.
5. Country Road Take to the highway won't you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same

Mamma don't understand it
She wants to know where I've been
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool
To want to pass that way again
But I could feel it
On a country road

Sailon home to Jesus won't you good girls and boys
I'm all in pieces, you can have your own choice
But I can hear a heavenly band full of angels
And they're coming to set me free
I don't know nothing 'bout the why or when
But I can tell that it's bound to be
Because I could feel it, child, yeah
On a country road

I guess my feet know where they want meto go
Walking on a country road

Take to the highway won't you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same, child
Mamma don't understand it
She wants to know where I've been
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool
To want to pass that way again
But Icould feel it
On a country road

Walk on down, walk on down, walk ondown
Walk on down, walk on down a country road
country road
Walking on a country road
6. You've Got A Friend When you're down and troubled
and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
and you know whereever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you have to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
and soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
all you got to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain't it good to know thatyou've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
7. Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight Do me wrong, do me right
Tell me lies but hold me tight
Save your goodbyes for the morning light
But don't let me be lonely tonight
Say goodbye and say hello
Sure enough it's good to see you and it's time to go
Don't say yes but please don't say no
I don't want to be lonely tonight
Go away and damn you
Go and go as you please
You ain't gonna see me getting down on my knees
Just about undecided and your heart's been divided
It's been turning my world upside down
Do me wrong, do me right
Tell me lies but hold me tight
Save your goodbyes for the morning light
But don't let me be lonely tonight
Go away, go away, go away then damn you
And do as you please
Darling you ain't gonna see me getting down on my knees
I'm undecided and your heart's been divided
It's been turning my world upside down
So do me wrong, do me right
Tell me lies but hold me tight
Save your goodbyes for the morning light
But don't let me be lonely tonight
Please don't let me lonely tonight
Do what you've gotta do
Go wwhere you've gotta go
Follow your heart my darling
But before you go
I want you to know
Please don't let me be lonely tonight
Do what you've gotta do
Go where you've gotta go
Follow your heartdarling
But before you go
Do what you've gotta do...
8. Walking Man Moving in silent desperation
keeping an eye on the holy land
a hypothetical destination
say, who is this walking man

Well the leaves havecome to turnin'
and the goose has gone to flight
and bridges are for burnin'
so don't you let that yearnin' pass you by.
Walking man,
The walking man walks
while any other man stops and talks
but the walking man walks

Well the frost is on the pumpkin
and the hay is in the barn, yeah
And Pappy's come to ramblin' on
stumblin' around drunk down onthe farm
and the walking man walks
he doesn't know nothing at all
any other man stops and talks
but the walking man walks on by,
walk on by

Most everybody's got seeds to sow
It ain't always easy for a weed to grow, no, no
So he don't hold the rope for no one
the short one's always missing,
or something is never quite right
ah, but who would want to listen to 'ya
kissin' his existence goodnight
Walking man,
walk on by my door
while any other man stops and talks
but not the walking man
he's the walking man
born to walk, walk on walking man
Well now, would he have wings to fly?
Would he be free?
Golden wings against thesky...
9. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank youbaby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I didwas just a bore
Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

You were better for me than I was for myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
10. Mexico Way down here you need a reason to move
Feel a fool running your stateside games
Lose your load, leave your mind behind, Baby James
Oh, Mexico
It sounds so simple I just got to go
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I'll have to go now
"Americano" got the sleepy eye
But his body's still shaking like a live wire
Sleepy "Seņorita" with the eyes on fire
Oh, Mexico
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
Moon's so bright like to light up the night
Make everything all right
Baby's hungry and the money's all gone
The folks back home don't want to talk on the phone
She gets a long letter, sends back a postcard; times are hard
Oh, down in Mexico
I never really been so I don't really know
Oh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go
Oh, Mexico
I never really been butI'd sure like to go
Oh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go now
11. Shower The People You can play the game and you can act out the part
Though you know itwasn't written for you
But tell me, how can you stand there with yourbroken heart
Ashamed of playing the fool
One thing can lead to another; it doesn't take any sacrifice
Oh, father and mother, sister and brother
if it feels nice, don't think twice

Just shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna work out fine if you only will
Shower the people you love with love
Showthem the way you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

You can run but you cannot hide
This is widely known
And what you plan to do with your foolish pride
When you're all by yourself alone
Once you tell somebody the way that you feel
You can feel it beginning to ease
I think it's true what they say about the squeaky wheel
Always getting the grease.

Better to shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be just fine if you only will
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel

You'll feel better right away
Don't take much to do
Sell you pride
They say in every life
They say the rain must fall
Just like pouring rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine.
Oh yes
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine
Yeah, all right
Everybody, everybody
Shower the people you love with love
12. Steamroller Well, I'm a steamroller, baby
I'm bound to roll all over you
Yes, I'm a steamroller, baby
I'm bound to roll all over you
I'm gonna injectyour soul with some sweet rock 'n roll
And shoot you full of rhythm and blues

Well, I'm a cement mixer
A churning urn of burning funk
Yes, I'm a cement mixer for you, baby
A churning urn of burning funk
Well, I'm a demolition derby
A hefty hunk of steaming junk

Now, I'm a napalm bomb, baby
Just guaranteed to blow your mind
Yeah, I'm a napalm bomb for you, baby
Guaranteed to blow your mind
And if I can't have your love for my own
Sweet child, won't be nothing left behind.

It seems how lately, baby
Got a bad case steamroller blues
