WHISKEY IN THE JAR

(Trad.)

gesungen von Claudia Pohl

Alle

As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains

I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'

I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier

I said:"Stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya"

 

ChorusWhiskey

ĽMusha ring dum a doo dum a da

ĽWhack for my daddy-o

ĽWhack for my daddy-o

ĽThere's whiskey in the jar

 

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny

I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly

She swore that she'd love me, never would she leave me

But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

 

Chorus

SOLO

Chorus

 

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber

Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger

For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell

I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

 

Chorus

 

 

SAN ANTONIO STROLL

(Peter Noah)

gesungen von Bonnie Funke

 

When I was a child down in South Caroline

Soon as Saturday sun went on down
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone,

Going to that big square dance in town.

 

Well my old radio would play that old opry show,

So I never got lonesome or blue.

I'd fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there,

Just singing the whole night through.

 

When my folks would come home, they'd be humming a song,

Mama'd smile and say: "Child, don't you know,

"There ain't a thing in this world to make you fall in love girl,

"Like the San Antonio Stroll?"

 

Well the day finally come when my mama said:

"Hun, "It's 'bout time you came with us as well."

Well, I had me a time, yes, I danced all the night,

'Til they rang that ol' cracked-midnight bell.

 

Then the lights went down low, the fiddler picked up his bow,

And he played something stately and slow.

And my sister Eileen and her husband-to-be,

They held hands and began to stroll

 

I've been away for a while, but it still brings a smile,

When I think of the way that it goes

Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do,

That old San Antonio Stroll

 

Yes, I'll sing it to you just so we all can do,

That old San Antonio Stroll

 

 

NO NO NEVER

(Jane Comerford-Grosser)

gesungen von Claudia Pohl

 

My love is stronger now than youíll ever know

And it wonít ever let you go

My love is wider than the ocean can be

And itís deeper than the deep blue sea

My love goes higher than a mountain can rise

And I see it there in your eyes

My love gets tougher when the going gets rough

And believe me, Iíve got more than enough

 

Keep tryiní babe, keep holding on

Thereís a place we belong

Where things are good, where love is strong

 

Chorus
Iím never ever gonna leave you to cry on your own

Never ever gonna not go and pick up the phone

Iím never ever gonna let you be chilled to the bone

No, no, never

No, no, never

Iím never ever gonna leave when youíre lost in the storm

Never ever gonna not keep you safe where itís warm

I never ever will desert you when your heart is torn

No, no, never

No, no, never

 

My love shines brighter than a twinkling star

Baby no matter where you are

And my love keeps burning like an eternal flame

You can feel it, when Iím calling your name

 

Keep tryiní babe, keep holding on

Thereís a place we belong

Where things are good, where love is strooong

 

Chorus

 

Iím never ever gonna leave you to cry on your own

Never ever gonna not go and pick up the phone

Iím never ever gonna let you be chilled to the bone

No, no, never

No, no, never

No, no, never

No, no, never

 

 

TOP OF THE WORLD

(Richard Carpenter/ John Bettis)

gesungen von Doreen Wolter

 

Such a feelingís coming over me

There is wonder in most everything I see

Not a cloud in the sky got the sun in my eyes

And I wonít be surprised if itís a dream

 

Evírything I want the world to be

Is now coming true especially for me

And the reason is clear, itís because you are here

Youíre the nearest thing to heaven that Iíve seen

 

Chorus

Iím on the top of the world looking down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that Iíve found ever since youíve been around

Your loveís put me at the top of the world

 

Something in the wind has learned my name

And itís telling me that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze

Thereís a pleasing sense of happiness for me

 

There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through I hope that I will find

That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me

All I need will be mine if you are here

I WANT TO BE A COWBOYíS SWEETHEART

(Patsy Montana)

gesungen von Claudia Pohl

 

I wannna be a cowboy's sweetheart, I wanna learn to rope and ride
I wannna ride through the plains and the desert
Out west of the Great Divide
I wannna hear the coyotes singiní as the sun sets in the west
I wannna be a cowboy's sweetheart
That's the life I love the best


[yodeling]

I wannna ride a paint move it at a run
I wannna feel the wind in my face
A thousand miles away from all movin' in the cowman's face
I wannna pillow my head beneath the open sky
As the sun sets in the west
I wanna strum my guitar and yodel-le-hee-dee

That's the life I love the best

BROWN EYED GIRL

(Van Morrison)

gesungen von Bonnie Funke

Hey where did we go, days when the rains came
Down in the hollow, playin' a new game
Laughing and a running hey, hey, skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with our, our hearts a thumpin' and you
My brown eyed girl

You my brown eyed girl

Whatever happened to Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine with a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing, hiding behind a rainbow's wall
Slipping and sliding all along the water fall, with you
My brown eyed girl

You my brown eyed girl

Chorus
Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da


So hard to find my way, now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day, my, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass behind the stadium with you
My brown eyed girl

You my brown eyed girl

Chorus

Sha la la la la la la la la la la te daÖÖÖÖÖÖÖ..

Well, itís one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready,

Now go, cat, go, but donít you step on my blue suede shoes

Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
Well, you can knock me down, step in my face, slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh, Honey, lay off of my shoes
Donít you step on my blue suede shoes.

When Iím near that girl that I love best

My heart beats so it scares me to death!

 

You ainít nothiní but a hound dog cryiní all the time.

You ainít nothiní but a hound dog cryiní all the time.

Well, you ainít never caught a rabbit and you ainít no friend of mine

MISSISSIPPI

(Werner Theunissen)

gesungen von Claudia Pohl

 

Where you can hear a country song from far,

And someone plays the honky tonk guitar,

Where all the lights will go out one by one,

The people join the sun,

And the wind takes it away

 

Where the Mississippi rolls down to the see,

And lovers found the place theyíd like to be,

How many times before the song was ending,

Love and understanding everywhere around

 

Chorus
Mississippi, I'll remember you,

Whenever I should go away,

I'll be longing for the day,

That I will be in Greenville again,

Mississippi, you'll be on my mind,

Every time I hear this song,

Mississippi roll along until the end of time

 

Now the country song forever lost its soul,

When the guitar player turned to rock'n'roll,

And every time when the summer nights are falling,

I always will be calling, dreams of yesterday

 

Chorus

 

Every time I hear this song,

Mississippi roll along until the end of time

 

 

WALK ON

(Steve Dean, Lonnie Williams)

gesungen von Bonnie Funke

 

Oh ain't life wonderful when everything is right

But sometimes wonderful can fall apart sometimes

When your troubles knock you down

Pick yourself up off the ground and

 

Chorus:
Walk on, walk on

Nothing ever stays wrong that long

Walk on, oh walk on

Don't just stand there in the storm

Walk toward the light Ďtil you find the sun

And you'll be better off in the long run

And walk on

 

Oh it's a heartache when love comes to an end

But even though your heart breaks

You know it's gonna mend

Keep the faith right through goodbye

And don't you ever break your stride

 

Chorus

Walk on, walk on
Ohhh walk on

Those Were The Days

(Gene Raskin)

gesungen von Claudia Pohl

 

Once upon a time there was a tavern

Where we used to raise a glass or two

Remember how we laughed away the hours

And dreamed of all the great things we would do

 

Chorus I

Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end

We'd sing and dance forever and a day

We'd live the life we choose, we'd fight and never lose

For we were young and sure to have our way

 

Lai lai lai lai...Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

 

Then the busy years went rushing by us

We lost our starry notions on the way

If by chance I'd see you in the tavern

We'd smile at one another and we'd say

 

Chorus II

Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end

We'd sing and dance forever and a day

We'd live the life we choose, we'd fight and never lose

Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

 

Lai lai lai lai...Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

 

Just tonight I stood before the tavern

Nothing seemed the way it used to be

In the glass I a saw a strange reflection

Was that lonely woman really me?

 

Through the door there came familiar laughter

I saw your face and heard you call my name.

Oh my friend we're older but no wiser

For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

 

Chorus II

Those were the days

Chorus II

Oh yes those were the days,
