WALKING AFTER MIDNIGHT
(Alan W. Block/Don Hecht)

I go out walking after midnight
Out in the moonlight just like we used to do
I'm always walking after midnight
Searching for you

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that´s just my way of sayin´ I love you
I'm always walking after midnight
Searching for you

I stop to see a weeping willow cryin´ on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin´ for me
And as the skies turn gloomy night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walking after midnight out in the starlight
Just a-hopin´ you may be
Somewhere a-walking after midnight
Searching for me

WHAT I DIDN`T DO
(Wood Newton/Michael Noble)

I didn't cheat, I didn't lie so her leaving took me by surprise
Just a note on the table, saying we're through
At first I went crazy so it took me some time
But I finally read between the lines
It's not what I did, it's what I didn't do 

I didn't tell her each day I loved her
I took it for granted, somehow she knew
I didn't hold her when she needed a shoulder
It's not what I did, it's what I didn't do

 Now it's easy to see why her love died
She was planning her nights by the TV-guide
She needed me with her, more then I knew
I was too busy working getting ahead
While I should have been home loving her instead
It's not what I did, it's what I didn't do

ROSEWOOD CASKET
(trad./ arranged by Doreen Wolter / Maik Wolter)

There's a little rosewood casket
Lying on a marble stand
II: With a packet of love letters
Written by my true love's hand :II

Go and bring them to me sister
Read them over for me tonight
II: I have often tried but I could not
For the tears that filled my eyes :II

Take his letters and his locket
Place them gently on my heart
II: But this golden ring that he gave me
From my finger never part :II
 

When I'm dead and in my casket
When I gently fall asleep
Fall asleep to wake in heaven
Dearest sister don`t you weep

first again

FAIRFAX COUNTY
(David Massengil)

Oh once I loved an outlaw he came and stole my heart
Oh how I count the hours since we were torn apart 
On the road to Fairfax County I spied a highwayman
He wanted all my money my heart beat like a drum

I gave him all my money and sweet he smiled at me
His beauty I took pity beneath the black oak tree
We kissed but for an hour the sun was newly warm
The clouds were as the flowers that bloom, but for a morn'

He gave back all my money and bowed most gallantly
He promised for to meet me that night beneath the tree
We'd flee to some far island and there we would be wed
And freely we would live there with no prize upon his head

That night I went to meet him with my inheritance
He kissed me 'neath the half moon and joyful we did dance
Oh love betrays all secrets it whispers in the breeze
The sheriff, he did follow with all his deputies 

Like hounds rushing to slaughter the fox who's luck is run
Jet he stood erect and cursed them God damn you everyone
They seized him in a fury and heading not my plea
They hung him from the oak tree where he made love to me

GUARDIAN ANGELS
(Naomi Judd / John Jarvis / Don Schlitz)

A hundred year old photograph stares out from a frame
And if you look real close you´ll see her eyes are just the same
I never met them face to face, but I still know them well
From the stories my dear grandma would tell

Elijah was a farmer, he knew how to make things grow
And granny vowed she´d follow him where ever he would go
Things turned out, they never left their small Kentucky farm
But he kept her fed, she kept him warm

They´re my guardian angels and I know that they can see
Every step I´m taking, they are watching over me
I might not know where I´m going
But I´m sure where I come from
They´re my guardian angels - and I´m their special one

Sometimes when I´m tired I feel Elijah takes my arm
He says " Keep on going hard work never did nobody harm "
And when I´m really troubled and I don´t know what to do
Then he whispers " Just do your best, we´re awful proud of you "

They´re my guardian angels and I know that they can see
Every step I´m taking, they are watching over me
I might not know where I´m going
But I´m sure where I come from
They´re my guardian angels - and I´m their special one

A hundred year old photograph stares out from a frame
And if you look real close you´ll see her eyes are just the same

IT`S ALL OVER NOW, BABY BLUE
(Bob Dylan)

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last
But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun,
Crying like a fire in the sun
Look out the saints are comin' through
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
Take what you have gathered from coincidence
The empty-handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
This sky, too, is folding under you
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
All your reindeer armies, are all going home
The lover who just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets from the floor
The carpet, too, is moving under you
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you
Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
Strike another match, go start a-new
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

COAT OF MANY COLOURS
(Dolly Parton)

Back through the years I go wanderin´ once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my mama put the rags to use

There were rags of many colors, but every piece was small
And I didn´t have a coat and it was way down in the fall
Mama sewed the rags together, sewing every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors that I was so proud of

As she sewed she told a story from the bible she had read
About a coat of many colors, Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps this coat will bring you good luck and happiness
And I just couldn´t wait to wear it and mama blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors that my mama made for me
Made only from rags, but I wore it so proudly
Although we had no money, but I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors, my mama made for me

So with patches on my britches, and holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors, I hurried of to school
Just to find the others laughing, and a making fun of me
In my coat of many colors, that mama made for me

And I couldn´t understand it, for I felt I was rich
And I told `em of the love my mama sewed in every stitch
And I told them all that story, mama told me while she sewed
And howmy coat of many colors was worth more than all their clothes

But they didn´t understand it and I tried to make them see
That one is only poor only if they choose to be
Now I know we had no money but I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors, my mama made for me
In my coat of many colors - mama made for me

LITTLE ROCK
(Tom Douglas)

Well I know I disappeared a time or two
And along the way I lost me and you
I needed a new town for my new start
Selling VCR´s in Arkansas in a Wal-mart

I haven't had a drink in nineteen days
My eyes are clear and bright without that haze
I like the preacher from the church of Christ
Sorry that I cried when I talked to you last night

I think I'm on a role here in Little Rock
I'm solid as a stone baby wait and see
I got just one small problem here in Little Rock
Without you, baby I'm not me

I don't know why I held it all inside
You must have thought I never even tried
You know your daddy told me when I left
Jesus would forgive, but a daddy don't forget

I think I'm on a role here in Little Rock
I'm solid as a stone baby wait and see
I got just one small problem here in Little Rock
Without you, baby I'm not me

Lying here upon this motel bed
My thoughts of you explode inside my head
And like a castle build upon the sand
I let love crumble through my hand

I think I'm on a role here in Little Rock
I'm solid as a stone baby wait and see
I got just one small problem here in Little Rock
Without you, baby I'm not me

Without you, baby I'm not me

IF I NEEDED YOU
(Townes van Zandt)

If I needed you would you come to me
Would you come to me for to ease my pain
If you needed me I would come to you
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain

Well the night's forlorn and the morning ´s born
And the morning ´s born with the lights of love
And you'll miss sunrise if you close your eyes
And that would break my heart in two

Baby's with me now since I showed her how
To lay her lily hand in mine
Who could ill agree she's a sight to see
A treasure for the poor to find

ME AND WHISKEY
(John Vaughan)

Woke up this morning, felt so bad
Hands were shaking and my head was sad
I hurt a friend last night
In a way that wasn´t right
By saying things that cut too deep
Me and whiskey shot a whole in my heart

Each time I always say is the last
Yet always again it comes to pass
When too much whiskey´s drunk
Too many bad thoughts sunk
Deep down inside as the bottle runs dry
Me and whiskey shot a whole in my heart

Shouldn´t have to be no second time
For when there is you know nothing is alright
When you´ve been hurt once
You´re reluctant with your trust
And it´s too late to say I´m sorry
Me and whiskey shot a whole in my heart

I´m worried now and got questions in my heart
But I understand why we fell apart
Got a feeling in my bones
I´m riding on the wrong road
And wondering where are you now
Me and whiskey shot a whole in my heart
Me and whiskey shot a whole in my heart

APPLEJACK
(Dolly Parton
)

He lived by the apple orchard in this little orchard shack
His real name was Jackson Taylor, I called him Applejack
Old Applejack was loved by everyone he ever knew
Applejack picked apples, but he picked the banjo too

Play a song for me Applejack, Applejack
Play a song for me and I´ll sing
Play a song for me Applejack, Applejack
Play a song let your banjo ring

I go down to Applejack´s almost every day
We`d sit and we´d drink applejack
That old Applejack had made
Then he take his banjo down, and then he´d ask me if I´d sing
Then he would play his banjo and I tried my best to sing

That's when I was just a kid and now that I am grown
All I have are memories `cos Applejack is gone
But he left me his old banjo and it always takes me back
And every time I play it, I still hear Applejack

SOMEBODY MUST HAVE LOVED YOU RIGHT LAST NIGHT
(Ken Bell)

Somebody must have loved you right last night
`Cause you're so far away today
Somebody turned your lovelight on in a different way
Could it be the way he kissed you or the way he held you tight
Somebody must have loved you right last night
Somebody must have loved you right last night

Don't you get tired of using me
Lately I'm just the place you got to be
Am I just the fool you come home to
After someone else just had the best of you

//: Somebody must have loved you right last night
'cause you're so far away today
Somebody turned your lovelight on in a different way
Could it be the way he kissed you or the way he held you tight
Somebody must have loved you right last night ://

Somebody must have loved you right last night

DARCEY FARROW
Words & music by Steve Gillette and Tom Campbell

Where the Walker runs down to the Carson Valley plain
There lived a maiden, Darcy Farrow was her name
The daughter of old Dundee and a fair one was she
And the sweetest flower that bloomed o’er the range

 Her voice was as sweet as sugar candy
Her touch was as soft as a bed of goose down
Her eyes shone bright like the pretty lights
That shine in the night out of Yerington tow

 She was courted by young Vandermeer
And quite handsome was he I am to hear
He brought her silver rings and lacy things
And she promised to wed before the snows fell that year

 But her pony it did stumble and she did fall
Her dyin’ touched on the heart of us all
Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet to his brain
And we buried them together as the snows began to fall

 They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs through
They sing of her beauty in Virginia City too
At dusty sundown to her name they drink a round
And to young Vandy whose love was true
 
And to young Vandy whose love was so true

Did I tune my guitar for this
(words & music Maik Wolter)

Late night café, half drunk crowd, singing my heart out
Wondering where to spent the night and
Did I tune my guitar for this ?

Did I tune my guitar for this?    Did I change my strings for that?
Those two in the corner making love to each other

Maybe for them -  did I tune my guitar

Busy street corner cars honking their horns
Nobody cares to drop a dime
Wondering how to pay for my lunch and
Did I tune my guitar for this ?

Did I tune my guitar for this?    Did I change my strings for that?
Those lonely drunkards making love to their beer
Maybe for them  - did I tune my guitar

Endless nights in smoky bars, drinking to forget
Wondering how to get home tonight and
Should I waste  my time like this

 Did I tune my guitar for this?    Did I change my strings for that?
This gal on the dance floor making love to herself
Maybe for her  -  did I tune my guitar 
Maybe for you and me and the sake of the song
Did I tune my guitar tonight

NO REGRETS (take it as they come)
(Music: Doreen Wolter/Maik Wolter; words: Maik Wolter)
© 2006-04-11

It looks like it’s going to rain tonight
Or are these tears that are wetting my face
These long forgotten memories
Hitting me like out of nowhere

Many a roads I have gone
Some were right, some were wrong
But wherever I went
It was my choice
There is no one to blame, but myself

 

Love affairs long forgotten
Coming back to life for a moment
Glimpses of happiness and sadness
Striking me with all there might

Many a roads I have gone
Some were right, some were wrong
But wherever I went
It was my choice
There is no one to blame, but myself


A long time ago I made a promise to myself:
No regrets no matter what I did
Taking the consequences as they came
If it was for glory or for shame

Many a roads I have gone
Some were right, some were wrong
But wherever I went
It was my choice
There is no one to blame, but myself

Gulfcoast Highway
(written by Nanci Griffith, James Hooker and Danny Flowers)

Gulf Coast Highway he worked the rails
He worked the rice fields with their cool dark wells
He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico;
The only thing we've ever owned is this old house here by the road
And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing
Then he will fly away to Heaven come some sweet bluebonnet spring

She walked through springtime when I was home
The days were sweet, the nights were warm
The seasons change, the jobs would come, the flowers fade
And this old house felt so alone when the work took me away
And when she dies she says, she'll catch some blackbird's wing
Then she will fly away to Heaven come some sweet bluebonnet spring

Highway Ninety, the jobs are gone
We tend our garden; we set the sun
This is the only place on earth blue bonnets grow;
And once a year they come and go at this old house here by the road
And when we die we say, we'll catch some blackbird's wing
And we will fly away to Heaven come some sweet bluebonnet spring

And when we die we say, we'll catch some blackbird's wing
We will fly away together come some sweet bluebonnet spring

La Belle Dame sans Merci
(Music: Maik Wolter, lyrics: John Keats)

O What can ail thee, knight-at-arms, alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has wither’d from the lake and no birds sing

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms! So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full and the harvest’s done

I see a lily on thy brow with anguish moist and fever dew
And on thy cheek a fading rose, Fast withereth too

I met a lady in the meads, full beautiful - a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light and her eyes were wild

I made a garland for her head and bracelets too, and fragrant zone
She look’d at me as she did love and made sweet moan

I set her on my pacing steed and nothing else saw all day long
For sidelong would she bend and sing a faery’s song

She found me roots of relish sweet and honey wild, and manna dew,
And sure in language strange she said - «I love thee true»

She took me to her elfin grot and there she wept, and sigh’d fill sore
And there I shut her wild wild eyes with kisses four

And there she lullèd me asleep and there I dream’d - Ah! woe betide!
The latest dream I ever dream’d on the cold hill’s side

I saw pale kings and princes too, pale warriors, death-pale were they all
They cried - «La Belle Dame sans Merci   -   Hath thee in thrall!»

I saw their starved lips in the gloam with horrid warning gaped wide
And I awoke and found me here, on the cold hill’s side

And this is why I sojourn here, alone and palely loitering
Though the sedge is wither’d from the lake and no birds sing

BLUEBIRD SONG
(Words & music: Doreen Wolter)

In the first morning light
The sun relieves the night
A breeze wakes up the blossoms
The air begins to live

It is noisy but it’s peaceful
From afar you hear a church bell ring
The flowers start dancing in the wind
That’s the time when the bluebird sings

In the first hours of a new day
A bluebird starts to sing
But when the silence seem to disappear
The bluebird starts to sing

BUCKETS OF RAIN
(Bob Dylan)

Buckets of rain
Buckets of tears
Got all them buckets comin' out of my ears
Buckets of moonbeams in my hand
I got all the love, honey baby
You can stand

I been meek
And hard like an oak
I seen pretty people disappear like smoke
Friends will arrive, friends will disappear
If you want me, honey baby
I'll be here

Like your smile
And your fingertips
Like the way that you move your lips
I like the cool way you look at me
Everything about you is bringing me
Misery

Little red wagon
Little red bike
I ain't no monkey but I know what I like.
I like the way you love me strong and slow
I'm takin' you with me, honey baby
When I go

Life is sad
Life is a bust
All ya can do is do what you must
You do what you must do and ya do it well
I'll do it for you, honey baby
Can't you tell?

LOVE IS LIKE A BUTTERFLY
(Dolly Parton)

CHORUS :
Love is like a butterfly as soft and gentle as a sigh
A multicolored moods of love are like it's satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing


I feel it when you're with me
It happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies

CHORUS

Your laughter brings me sunshine
Everyday is springtime
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share
How very precious sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies

DANCE HALL SATURDAY NIGHT
(Willie Jones)

It’s not diamond or pearls, she’s not that kind of girl
It’s more in the way she danced with him
And he knows without a doubt that’s not what she’s about
She just loves to do that Texas Twirl

CHORUS

It’s Saturday night, they hold each other tight
On the dance floor they  turn their love around
She’s the best thing in his world, she’s a sweet south Texas girl
In a dance hall on Saturday night

It’s not cars or fancy clothes, no highbrow fashion shows
That lady loves her boots of ostrich hide
And disco’s not her thing, she goes for western swing
All the music that the jukebox can provide

CHORUS

When the music’s all been played, it’s time to promenade
To the parking lot and then on down the road
They two-step into bed, Bob Wills rings in his head
While he’s loving his Rose of San Antone

CHORUS  +  In a dance hall on Saturday night
 In a dance hall on Saturday night

WHISPER OF A CLOUD
(Words & music: Doreen Wolter)
 
On a warm summer day it was 6.30 pm
It was already fifteen minutes to late
All the lights of the city seemed to wave good bye
As the plane moved through heaven’s gate

Chorus
And I love the view up above
Being over the clouds and sometimes the next minute in it
And if the engine wouldn’t be quiet so loud
I guess you could hear a heavenly whisper of a cloud


Interlude

Two thousand miles away from home
We’re ridin’ fast through the sky
The clouds changed their look and daylight was gettin’ brighter
As we were so many miles way up high

JUST LIKE TOM THUMB'S BLUES 
(Bob Dylan)

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outa you

Now if you see Saint Annie
Please tell her thanks a lot
I cannot move
My fingers are all in a knot
I don't have the strength
To get up and take another shot
And my best friend, my doctor
Won't even say what it is I've got

Sweet Melinda
The peasants call her the goddess of gloom
She speaks good English
And she invites you up into her room
And you're so kind
And careful not to go to her too soon
And she takes your voice
And leaves you howling at the moon

Up on Housing Project Hill
It's either fortune or fame
You must pick up one or the other
Though neither of them are to be what they claim
If you're lookin' to get silly
You better go back to from where you came
Because the cops don't need you
And man they expect the same

Now all the authorities
They just stand around and boast
How they blackmailed the sergeant-at-arms
Into leaving his post
And picking up Angel who
Just arrived here from the coast
Who looked so fine at first
But left looking just like a ghost

I started out on burgundy
But soon hit the harder stuff
Everybody said they'd stand behind me
When the game got rough
But the joke was on me
There was nobody even there to call my bluff
I'm going back to New York City
I do believe I've had enough

Clouds in my head
(Words: Doreen Wolter & Maik Wolter; music: Doreen Wolter)

It´s morning  -  clouds in my head
Like to have sunshine  -  instead
I´m dreaming  -  where are you
Like to have you near me  -  instead of being blue

Past midnight  -   I´m still far away
I long to be near you  -  I must stay awake

Still morning …
