Music Rambles

Lynette, Tom and the Scavo twins are here for an overnight visit, we're drinkin' Blue Moon Honey Moon seasonal ale and the Roxiticus Desperate iPod is doing the five star shuffle out on the porch here at our beach house in Bay Head, New Jersey. I'm always impressed with the segues the iPod comes up with on its own...this evening, I just heard "The Dance" by Garth Brooks, followed by Kiss singin' "Hard Luck Woman."

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

If never I met you
Id never have seen you cry
If not for our first hello
Wed never have to say goodbye
If never I held you
My feelins would never show
Its time I start walkin
But theres so much youll never know

I keep telling you hard luck woman
You aint a hard luck woman

Rags, the sailors only daughter
A child of the water
Too proud to be a queen

Rags, I really love you
I cant forget about you
Youll be a hard luck woman
Baby, till you find your man

Before I go let me kiss you
And wipe the tears from your eyes
I dont wanna hurt you, girl
You know I could never lie

I keep telling you hard luck woman
You aint a hard luck woman
Youll be a hard luck woman
Baby, till you find your man

Rags, the sailors only daughter
A child of the water
Too proud to be a queen

Rags, I really love you
I cant forget about you
Youll be a hard luck woman
Baby, till you find your man
Youll be a hard luck woman
Baby, till you find your man

Oh yeah, bye bye, so long, dont cry
Im just packin my bags, whoo, leavin you
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, baby, dont cry
I gotta keep on movin, yeah movin
Bye, bye my baby
Ooh, dont cry, lady, oh

And, just for fun, the iPod threw in Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman," followed by Springsteen singing "Hungry Heart." I got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack...
