Red White and Blues Song Words

1. Hold On

Hold On, Hold On, Darlin’ don't let go,
It’s just a little bit farther, round the bend down the road.
Hold On, Hold On, Don’t you wanna go,
just a little bit farther, round the bend down the road.

You put one foot in front of the other, breathe in, breathe out.
Look up, don’t look down, ’cause that’s not what it’s all about.

Hold on, Hold on, c’mon and take my hand,
Together we can make it, Darlin’ to the Promised Land.

2. Corinna

Corinna, Corinna where you been so long?
Corinna, Corinna where you been so long?
I've been worried ’bout you baby,
Honey. won't you please come home.

I got a bird that whistles, I got a bird that sings.
I got a bird that whistles, I got a bird that sings.
But if I don't have Corinna, life doesn't mean a thing.

Corinna, Corinna where’d you stay last night?
Corinna, Corinna where’d you stay last night?
You know your hair's all messed up, and your clothes don't fit you right.

3. Walkin' Blues

Woke up this mornin’, feel round for my shoes,
you know by that I got those, woh walkin’ blues,
This mornin’, feel round for my shoes,
I said you know by that I got those, woh walkin’ blues.

Early this mornin’ got to go ride the blinds,
I been mistreated babe, I don’t mind dyin’.
This mornin’, (oooh), got to go ride the blinds,
I said Babe I been mistreated, and I don’t mind dyin’.

Feel like blowin’, my lonesome home
Woke up this mornin’ all I had was gone.
Lord I feel like, (oooh), blowin’ my lonesome home.
When I got up this mornin’, all I had was gone.

Some people tell you, worried blues ain’t bad,
Worst old feelin’ I most ever had.
Some people tell you, those worried blues ain’t bad,
Lord it’s the worst old feeling, I most ever had.

Elgin movements from his head down to his toes,
He can break in on a dollar anywhere he goes,
Lord he’s got elgin movements, from his hair down to his umph (oooh),
He can break in on a dollar anywhere he goes.

4. Junkfood Junkie Blues

He's got those Junkfood Junkie Blues,
He's got those Junkfood Junkie Blues,
Give him a double quarter pounder, large fries and a shake.
If you want to keep him happy Momma, that’s what it takes.
Just give him what he’s craving or you’ll hear this refrain,
He wants to eat junkfood all day.
He's got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.

He’s got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.
It’s so politically correct to eat salad and rice,
They tell him all that grease is just not very nice,
He don't care what they say, he knows what he likes,
He’ll take his greasy burgers any day over rice.
He's got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.

He’s got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.
Give him potato chips and onion dip and coke on the rocks.
Give him something fried, he don’t want bagels and lox.
Top it off with icecream smothered in fudge,
Could this be why couch potatoes don’t budge?
They've got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.

He’s got those Junkfood Junkie Blues.
Now they say no pain, no gain, but Darlin’ listen to me.
The road you’re heading down will lead to gastro-misery.
Carrot sticks and water sound like torture to you,
But that’s what you’ll be eating if you keep on,
With these Junkfood Junkie Blues.

6. Brian's Song

I've been here before. I know I’ll make it through.
This sea of pain has a shore, but I don’t want to make it without you.
They say true love take’s time, And that time heals all wounds,
Time’s the one thing that I’ve got plenty of
I want to spend it, share it with you.

We’re working through who we are, me and you,
And we don’t know, where we’ll end up.
Seeing if there’s enough common ground,
But I do know, I don’t want to give up.

Sometimes in a person’s life,
there is a love that only comes once,
And it lasts for all eternity,
You are that love to me.


7. Abilene

Abilene, my Ablilene, the prettiest town I’ve ever seen,
Folks out there don’t treat you mean, in Ablilene (my Abilene).

Dirty city, ain’t nothing free, ain’t nothing in this dirty city for me,
I wish to God that I could be in Abilene (my Abilene).

Sit alone, most every night, I watch those trains rollin’ out of sight.
I wish to God they would carry me, to Abilene, (my Abilene).


8. The Driving Song

Drivin’, drivin’, drivin’, down the road,
Tryin’ to find a way to lose my heavy load,
The pedal hits the metal and my thoughts leap ahead,
tryin’ to outrace the storm clouds in my head.

C’mon baby, hold me tight,
I need your sweet love to make it through the night,
Whatcha gonna do when the lights go out?
Hold on Darlin’, and we’ll figure it out.

Drivin’, drivin’, drivin’, in the pouring rain,
All this stupid drivin’, drivin’ me insane.
Road rage all around now, you better watch out,
You know they’ll squish you like a bug darlin’,
Ain’t no doubt.

C’mon baby, hold me tight,
I need your sweet love to make it through the night,
Whatcha gonna do when the lights go out?
Hold on Darlin’, and we’ll figure it out.

Drivin’, drivin’, drivin’, with the radio on,
You know I’m singing real loud to my favorite songs,
Bee, beep, beep beep, Beep beep beep beep, (yeah).
Sun in my eyes now I’m driving blind,
But with my mind on you Darlin’, I don’t mind.

C’mon baby, hold me tight,
I need your sweet love to make it through the night,
Whatcha gonna do when the lights go out?
Hold on Darlin’, and we’ll figure it out.
figure it out. figure it out.


9. Ever Hopeful

instrumental


10. Fly in Amber

Summer breeze caress so gently,
Soft and warm as a baby’s sigh.
Smells like rain, feels like summer,
I hear goodbyes in the distant thunder.

It’s hard to let go, it’s harder to hold on,
Fearing what’s ahead, longing for what is gone.
Like a fly in amber, captured in time.

My life’s an open door.
People come and people go.
I see starlight in your eyes.
In your arms I’m home.

Yesterday, seemed so timeless, tomorrow just a promise to come.
It’s come and gone now, we’ve learned to mind less,
The bumps in the road, the songs left unsung.

My life’s an open door.
People come and people go.
I see starlight in your eyes.
In your arms I’m home.


11. Precious Lord

Precious Lord, I love that name.
When I look back from whence I came.
Sometimes stumbling, sometimes falling, sometimes alone.
Friends and loved ones, I love so dear, many are gone, but still I'm here.
Take my hand, Precious Lord, and lead me on.

Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, make me stand.
I am tired, I am weak, and I am worn.
Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light.
Take my hand, precious Lord, and lead me on.

When my way, grows drear, Oh precious Lord, I want you to,
linger near,
When my life, is all, is almost gone. Hear my cry, hear my call,
Lord take my hand, (please sir, don't let me fall).
Take my hand, Precious Lord, and lead, please, lead me home.

 


The Road Home Song Words 

1. Wayfaring Stranger

I am a poor wayfaring stranger, traveling through this world of woe.
And there’s no sickness, toil or danger, in that bright land to which I go.

I’m going there to see my mother, She said she’d meet me when I come.
I’m only going over Jordon. I’m only going over home.

I know dark clouds will head around me. I know my way is rough and steep,
but beauteous fields lie just before me, where God’s redeemed, their vigil keep.

I’m going there to see my father, I’m going there no more to roam.
I’m only going over Jordon. I’m only going over home.

I want to wear my crown of glory, when I get home to that bright land.
I want to shout salvation’s story, in concert with that blood-washed band.

I’m going there to see my Savior, and sing His praise forever more.
I’m only going over Jordon. I’m only going over home.


2. Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning

Chorus: Keep your lamp, trimmed and burning Keep your lamp, trimmed and burning.
Oh See what the Lord has done.

Cause the work is almost done.

Chorus

Brother don’t get worried. Brother don’t get worried. Brother don’t get worried.
Cause the work is almost done.

Chorus

Heaven’s journey’s on before us. Heaven’s journey’s on before us.
Heaven’s journey’s on before us. See what the Lord has done.

Elder, don’t get worried, Ahh, don’t get worried, Elder don¹t get worried
For the work is almost done.

Almost over, almost over, it’s almost over. See what the Lord has done.

Brother don’t get worried. Brother don’t get worried. Brother don’t get worried.
Cause the work is almost done.


3. I Am A Pilgrim

I am a pilgrim and a stranger, traveling through this wearisome land.
I’ve got a home in that yonder city, Good Lord.
And it’s not, not made by hands.

I’ve got a mother, sister and a brother.
They done gone on to that other shore.
And I’m determined to go and see them, Good Lord.
And be with them forevermore.

When I go down to the river of Jordon just to bathe my weary soul.
If I can but touch the hem of his garment, Good Lord,
I do believe, He’ll make me whole.

I am a pilgrim and a stranger, traveling through this wearisome land.
I’ve got a home in that yonder city, Good Lord.
And it’s not, not made by hands.


4. The Promise

There once was a time when I felt so alone, then my Lord said to me,
“No, I’ll never, no never, never no never, never, ever leave thee.”

I hear you call, my love. You’re safe in my arms. I won’t let you fall, my love.
You won’t come to harm.

And I’ll never, no never, never no never, never, ever leave thee.

The King’s bride is glorious within. His beauty adorns her.
His grace is poured into her lips. His love has transformed her.

And He’ll never, never no never, never, ever leave thee.


5. Balm In Gilead

There is a balm in Gilead, to make the wounded whole, There is a balm in Gilead,
to heal the sin-sick soul.

Sometimes I feel discouraged, and think my work’s in vain,
but then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again

There is a balm in Gilead, to make the wounded whole, There is a balm in Gilead,
to heal the sin-sick soul.

If you cannot preach like Peter, if you cannot pray like Paul,
you can tell the love of Jesus, he died to save us all.

There is a balm in Gilead, to make the wounded whole, There is a balm in Gilead,
to heal the sin-sick soul.


6. Nobody’s Fault But Mine

Nobody’s fault but mine. Nobody’s fault but mine.
If I don’t read it, my soul be lost.
Nobody’s fault but mine.

I got a bible in my home. I got a bible in my home.
If I don’t read it, my soul be lost.
Nobody’s fault but mine.

Mother taught me how to read. Mother taught me how to read.
If I don’t read it, my soul be lost.
Nobody’s fault but mine.

Sister taught me how to pray. Sister taught me how to pray.
If I don’t pray and my soul be lost.
Nobody’s fault but mine.

Nobody’s fault but mine. Nobody’s fault but mine.
If I don’t read it, my soul be lost.
Nobody’s fault but mine.


7. Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah

Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah, Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but thou art mighty. Hold me in thy powerful hand.

Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
feed me till I want no more.


8. Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul.
And guides my path in righteousness for His name sake.

Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever and ever and ever.

Though I walk through the Valley of The Shadow Of Death,
I will not fear, Thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff shall comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup overfloweth.

Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever and ever and ever.


9. Blessed Are They Who Come

Blessed are they who come in the name of the Lord.
Blessed are they who come in the name of the Lord.

They will go forth with peace and be led by joy.
They will go forth with peace and be led by joy.

And the mountains and the valleys will burst into song.
And all the trees will clap their hands.
And all creation will sing along: Salvation’s come at last, come at last, come at last.
