Country Joe & the Fish - Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine letra lyrics

Idioma: 

Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine

She hides in an attic concealed on a shelf
Behind volumes of literature based on herself
And runs across the pages like some tiny elf
Knowing that it's hard to find
Stuff way back in her mind
Winds up spending all of her time
Trying to memorize every line
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Sweet lady of death wants me to die
So she can come sit by my bedside and sigh
And wipe away the tears from all my friends eyes
Then softly she will explain
Just exactly who was to blame
For causing me to go insane
And finally blow out my brain
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Ah 'bout country ways.
 
The joy of life she dresses in black
With celestial secrets engraved in her back
And her face keeps flashing that she's got the knack
But you know when you look into her eyes
All she's learned she's had to memorize
And the only way you'll ever get her high
Is to let her do her thing and then watch you die
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Now she's the one who gives us all those magical things
And reads us stories out of the I Ching
Then she passes out a whole new basket of rings
That when you put on your hand
Makes you one of the Angel Band
And gives you the power to be a man
But what it does for her you never quite understand
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Oh 'bout country ways, oh 'bout country ways
Yeah about country ways, oh country ways ...

Letters to Her

Well he was on the edge
He couldn't look the other way
Keep your chin up kid
This battle's almost won is what they say
But they don't know that deep inside
He dies a little more each time
And all he wants to do is fall back in her arms
 
Stay up all night just talking and falling in love
He wouldn't be alone anymore
Gets on one knee with a question
She turned to him and said
 
No matter where this may lead
You know you can always count on me
It gets harder I know
Don't let me down this I pray
 
Now she's against the wall
She's looking for another way
Bows her head down low and silently
Sinks into dismay
It's hard to sleep at night
When you're all alone
It's been forever since he left home
She made a promise then
Never to doubt again
Until he comes back and makes her whole
 
God why's this so hard?
She wants a way out
Just then the door rang
Letters with her name
She cried alone
Tears fell on the letters he wrote
She smiled alone
When she read the words he wrote
 
No matter where this may lead
You know you can always count on me
It gets harder, I know
Don't let me down this I pray
Hold on when we're apart
This bond I keep in my heart
It gets harder I know
Don't let me down this I pray
 
Then late one night
A knock on the door
She runs outside hoping for nothing more
But what she sees
Sends her straight to the floor
 
They held her close
Said things like he was the best
When all she heard
The words that he told her last
When they stayed up
Just talking all through the night
 
Hold on to me
And we'll fade through the days
If we hold on, hold on to me
 

Rise Up

I was hoping for an indication
I was seeking higher elevation
(Ey ey ey, ey ey ey)
I've been shaking waking in the night light
I've been breaking hiding from the spotlight
(Ey ey ey, ey ey ey)
 
The more I stray the less I fear
And the more I reach the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh it's calling out and I won't walk away
 
I would always open up the door
Always looking up at higher floors
Want to see it all give me more (rise, rise up)
I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)
 
Like a prayer that only needs a reason
Like a hunter waiting for the season
(Ey ey ey, ey ey ey)
I was there but I was always leaving
I've been living but I was never breathing
(Ey ey ey, ey ey ey)
 
The more I stray the less I fear
And the more I reach the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh it's calling out and I won't walk away
 
I would always open up the door
Always looking up at higher floors
Want to see it all give me more (rise, rise up)
I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)
 
I'm bursting like the fourth of July so color me and blow me away
I'm broken in the prime of my life so embrace it and leave me to stray
 
I would always open up the door
Always looking up at higher floors
Want to see it all give me more (rise, rise up)
I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)
 
I would always open up the door
Always looking up at higher floors
Want to see it all give me more (rise, rise up)
I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)
 
(Rise, rise up)
(Rise, rise up)
 

Hubo un lugar

Hubo un lugar
donde los árboles lloran
y yo no paro de llorar
Por ti seré
eterno manantial.
Le llamaban triste soledad
Le siguen llamando como ayer
y sigue bebiendo del manantial
y riega con su miel que la veo danzar.
Por ti seré
eterno manantial.
Me dijeron que no iba a volver,
al cabo de un año regresó
al lomo de un potro gallardo;
y los flamencos al pasar
le veneran como al sol.
Por ti seré
eterno manantial.
Hubo un lugar
donde los árboles lloran,
y yo no paro de llorar.
Por ti seré
eterno manantial.

Cuba linda, de mi vida
Cuba linda siempre la recordaré
Yo quisiera verte ahora como la primera vez
Cuba linda, de mi vida
Cuba linda siempre la recordaré
Cuba linda, de mi vida
Cuba linda siempre la recordaré

Flor de mayo, sevillana
Flor de mayo que a mi patria levantó
Yo quisiera verte ahora, como la primera vez
Flor de mayo, sevillana
Flor de mayo que a mi patria levantó

Te recordaremos aunque me cueste morir
A mi me gustaría una mañana
Después del café bebido
Pasearme por la Habana
Con mi cigarro encendido

Stop

Stop, I don’t wanna lose you
I got so much confusion
Night, day, left, right
Hey, I don’t want your silence
Feeling all this violence tonight, don’t fight
 
Sweet were rains, night and day
Don’t think twice
 
I don’t wanna close my eyes
Never gonna play your life
So much, my tears remember, I…
I just wanna let you know
Never gonna let you go
This way my tears are sweet and cold
Please, hear me lady, I'll miss your sweet hello
 
Try, are gonna save me?
I don’t wanna lose you
Don’t brake my life
Sweet were rains, night and day
Night, day, cry
 
I don’t wanna close my eyes
Never gonna play your life
So much, my tears remember, I…
I don’t wanna close my eyes
Never gonna play your life
So much, my tears remember, oh.
 
If it’s gonna played your life,
Tell me what you’ve lied.
 
Sweet were rains, night and day
Don’t think twice
 
I don’t wanna close my eyes
Never gonna play your life
So much, my tears remember, I…
I just wanna let you know
Never gonna let you go.
This way my tears are sweet and cold
Please, hear me lady, I miss your sweet hello
