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

He fills his glasses up to the brim
And he'll pass the cards around
And the only pleasure he gets out of life
Is ramblin' from town to town

Go tell my baby sister
Not to do what I have done
And shun that house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
House of the Rising Sun - Joan Baez (The Animals sing a slightly different version.)

Next song:

She went into a tailor shop
And dressed in men's array
And stepped on board a vessel
To convey herself away
Oh, to convey herself away.

"Before you step on board, sir,
Your name I'd like to know"

She smiled in all her countenance and said

Oh, they call me Jackaroe"
Jackaroe - Joan Baez

*****
I held a knife
Against her breast
As into my arms she pressed
She said "Oh Willie
Don't you murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity"

And only say
That you'll be mine
In no other arms entwine
Down beside where the river flows
Down by the banks of the Ohio
Banks of the Ohio - Various singers (Johnny Cash, Joan Baez, etc.)

In the same vein, sort of:

You took her on the hillside
For to make her your wife;
You took her on the hillside,
And there you took her life.

[What is it with those guys anyway? Killing the woman they love because she wouldn't have them... Rolling Eyes ]

Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
You killed Laurie Foster
And now you're bound to die
The Ballad of Tom Dooley - Doc Watson and many folk singers (lyrics may vary)

Next one:

I hear her voice
In the mornin hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin down the road I get a feelin
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home

Take me home, country roads
Country Roads, Take Me Home - John Denver

Next one:

Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
Although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
Without a hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December, our hearts should remember
And follow.

Heya Cowboy, that's actually the end of the song... But here's the next to last stanza:

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow. folloooowww
Try to Remember - Many singers, including Nana Mouskouri, Tom Jones and The Brothers Four

Now mine:

Then I awake and look around me, at four grey walls that surround me
And I realize, yes, I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre -
Arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak

I'm so young and you're so old
This my darling I've been told
I don't care just what they say
'Cause forever I will pray
You and I will be as free
As the birds up in the tree

*****
It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was balin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered out the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet"

C'était le 4 juin, le soleil tapait depuis le matin
Je m'occupais de la vigne et mon frère chargeait le foin
Puis on est rentrés déjeuner à la maison
Et notre mère nous a crié de la cuisine "Essuyez vos pieds sur l' paillasson"

Oh je voudrais tant que tu te souviennes
Cette chanson était la tienne
C'était ta préférée je crois
