Would like the lyrics to "Eliza", gives me such joy!
Wow! Same question a day apart. . .
For every ten girls, I ever fancied
Ten times I've been broke
Ten times my love refused,
My bed longly when I awoke,
But it won't stop my heart from dreaming,
Though it does take its toll,
And each lovely I acquaint with,
I slip deeper in the hole
Eliza, you'll run away with me,
So empty out your pockets and step lightly,
Gather your petticoats tightly to your knee,
Make hast and run until we're free
Should I try to heal my madness,
And from my own heart withdraw?
Bind my body to an oak tree,
With a muzzle on my jaw?
But through that muzzle I would cry out,
And my arms would break free,
Gone away the self restraint,
I attempted so desperately
Sweet Ellen . . .
Do not take pity on my heart,
For me do not frown,
For I jubilate in,
The dreams I have known,
Well give me one more dance,
Before the sun drops,
For some it is hard to love,
For me it's hard to stop
Darling Cora . . .
Eliza . . .
Just heard you for first time on Daytrotter. Checked your tour dates and saw you were in Iowa City, IA recently. Won't miss you next time when your in the area. Guess that was more of a comment than a question, huh? Hey, there's my question.Red Tail Ring responded on 11/19/2013 Next question
Can't even say how I got to your music but I'm so glad I did. I would say at this point, I may be addicted and need an "intervention" because I listen so much on my Amazon Cloud.
Would love to get lyrics for "Eliza" - tried to write them out myself (at which point I realized this is a very funny song) but can't make some of the words.
Hope you get to eastern New England at some point.
