They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

Riding on the City of New Orleans Illinois Central Monday morning rail Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail

All along the southbound odyssey the train pulls out at Kankakee And rolls along past houses, farms and fields Passin' trains that have no names and freight yards full of old black men And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Good morning America how are you? See, don't you know me I'm your native son I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans And I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car Penny a point ain't no one keepin' score Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle Feel the wheels rumblin''neath the floor

And the sons of pullman porters and the sons of engineers Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel Mothers with their babes asleep are rockin' to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

Good morning America how are you? See, don't you know me I'm your native son I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Nighttime on The City of New Orleans Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee Half way home, we'll be there by morning Through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea

But all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream And the steel rails still ain't heard the news The conductor sings his song again, the passengers will please refrain This train's got the disappearing railroad blues

Good morning America how are you? See, don't you know me I'm your native son I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

BRYAN ADAMS ~ MY NATIVE SON ...


I've seen many moons through these wrinkled eyes
The years have made me old but they've made me wise
Now the white man lives where our rivers run

For now better days have passed
We walk the streets of broken glass
Our people vanished as snow before the summer sun

Like dogs we were driven from this place
Such injustice, time will not erase
All these changes cannot be undone

When you feel the anger inside of you
Hold your head high - let your aim be true
Though your heart beats like a drum
My native son

Once there was a time my little one
Before the wagons - before the soldiers' guns
When this land was ours as far as the eagle flies

No white flag - no broken truce
With few words one can speak the truth - I don't hear it
Time won't heal it now

With each new day that comes to pass
Will the great spirit free us all at last?
He said we were the chosen ones

For all we had there's nothin' left
We won't forgive - we can't forget
You know that your day will come
My native son

With each new day that comes to pass
Will the great spirit free us all at last?
What has happened can never be undone

When I was young - not yet a man
The sun rose and set upon our land
We were the chosen ones
My native son ...

You got me runnin' goin' out of my mind,
You got me thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You wanna stay out with your fancy friends.
I'm tellin' you it's go to be the end,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down.

What happend to the girl I used to known,
You let your mind out somewhere down the road,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You're always talkin''bout your crazy nights,
One of these days you're gonna get it right.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down, Bruce
Don't bring me down.

You're lookin' good just like a snake in the grass,
One of these days you're gonna break your glass.
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

You got me shakin' got me runnin' away
You get me crawlin' up to you everyday,
Don't bring me down, no no no no no,
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don't bring me down.

Long tailed cat sitting by the old rocking chair
He don't realize that there's a danger there
He don't care if no rockin and roll chair
Is gonna boogie on his daycause he's swinging his tail to a low down syncapate

I'm going down to new orleans town on a dixie holiday
To get myself, a hunk of that harmony yeah-aye
You may be a symphony but i believe in song
It's got a catchy melody so you can sing along

Woah they say talking bout the girls that work up town
I don't realize that there's a danger now
No swinging tail on no rockin n roll girl
Is gonna boogie woogie on my day,
Just making time to a dixie holiday

I'm going down to new orleans town, to get a pound of feed
Be back home in just about a half of week
You may be a symphony but i believe in song
It's got a catchy melody so you can sing along

Everybody sing a long long
Don't know what you sing along long
Hey you're gonna sing along
All you sing is
All you sing is oh my oh my my hey hey

Your daddy getting older and the cows are going dry
You gotta go by, go bye bye
On a dixie holiday yeah y-aye

I can't sleep a wink anymore Ever since you first walked out the door Then I just started drinking to forget But I don't think the worst has happened yet

All you ever do is bring me down Making me a fool all over town And they all wonder why I wear a frown That's 'cause honey all you do is bring me down

It's funny how my whole world fell apart I think I saw it coming from the start I tried to tell myself that you'd be true But I expected way too much of you

All you ever do is bring me down Making me a fool all over town And they all wonder why I wear a frown That's 'cause honey all you do is bring me down

All you ever do is bring me down Making me a fool all over town And they all wonder why I wear a frown That's 'cause honey all you do is bring me down

That's 'cause honey all you do is bring me down Honey all you ever do is bring me down

Couldn't wait to see you
Waiting by the door
There was no one there to meet me
And your clothes were on the floor

Sorry if I hurt you

And I made you cry

Couldn't stand to see you

With another guy


It's the bluest blues

And it cuts me like a knife

It's the bluest blues

Since you walked out of my life

I light your cigarettes I bring you apples from the vine How quickly you forget I run the bath and pour the wine I bring you everything that floats into your mind

But you don't bring me anything but down No you don't bring me anything but down You don't bring me anything but down When you come around

You are a raging sea I pull myself out everyday I plea insanity 'Cause I can't leave and I can't stay You say, won't you come find me and yes is what I say

You don't bring me anything but down No you don't bring me anything but down Everything is crashing to the ground
Maybe I'm not your perfect kind Maybe I'm not what you had in mind
And maybe we're just killing time

You with your silky words And your eyes of green and blue You with your steel beliefs That don't match anything you do It was so much easier before you became you

Now you don't bring me anything but down No you don't bring me anything but down Now everything just crashes to the ground When you come around When you come around

No more playing seek and hide No more long and wasted nights Can't you make it easy on yourself

I know you wish you were strong You wish you were never wrong Well, I got some wishes of my own ...

Tonight I feel so weak
But all in love is fair
I turn the other cheek
And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
And I know you're only human
And I haven't got talking room
But tonight while I'm making excuses
Some other woman is making love to you
Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see I'm burning alive?
Can't you see my baby's got another lover?
I don't know how I'm gonna survive
Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see it's out of control?
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet Devil, the sweet Devil's got my soul
When will this aching pass?
When will this night be through?
I want to hear the breaking glass
I only feel the steel of the red hot truth
And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
I need some insanity, that temporary kind
Tell me how will I ever be the same?

Lookin' like a beauty queen
Loyal as a wife
She raised her little voice and testified,
"I am a good girl
I've been one all my life"
But her virtue was as swollen as her pride
She should've had the Oscar
She must have been miscast
Her fifteen minutes went by so fast
I said, "Now, baby, have you got no shame?"
She just looked at me, uncomprehendingly
Like cows at a passing train

I'm not aware of too many things,
But I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box.
Religion is the smile on a dog.
I'm not aware of too many things,
But I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep.
What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?
I'm not aware of too many things,
But I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks.
Religion is a light in the fog.
I'm not aware of too many things,
But I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep.
What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?
Don't let me get too deep.

"Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three..."

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of pure imagination Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly
Wish to be

If you want to view paradise Simply look around and view it Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with pure imagination Living there
You'll be free
If you truly
Wish to be

Oh, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin' and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if... I wont have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colors all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if... I wont have to cry no more.

Oh, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin' and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my legs, I wont moan, and I wont beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if... I wont have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if... I wont have to talk...

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?

Oh, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin' and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
