~Favorite Plant's and Trees Song's ~





America - A Horse With No Name+Lyrics



On the first part of the journey,
I was looking at all the life.
There were plants and birds. and rocks and things,
There was sand and hills and rings.
The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz,
And the sky, with no clouds.
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry,
But the air was full of sound.

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

After two days, in the desert sun,
My skin began to turn red.
After three days, in the desert fun,
I was looking at a river bed.
And the story it told, of a river that flowed,
Made me sad to think it was dead.

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

After nine days, I let the horse run free,
'Cause the desert had turned to sea.
There were plants and birds, and rocks and things,
There was sand and hills and rings.
The ocean is a desert, with it's life underground,
And a perfect disguise above.
Under the cities lies, a heart made of ground,
But the humans will give no love.

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

Counting Crows - Big yellow taxi

they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
with a pink hotel, a boutique
and a swinging hot spot

don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what youve got til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

they took all the trees
and put 'em in a tree museum
and they charged the people
a dollar and a half to seem 'em

don't it always seem to go,
that you don't know what youve got
til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

hey farmer farmer
put away the DDT
i dont care about spots on my apples
leave me the birds and the bees
please!

don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what youve got
til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
hey, now they paved paradise
to put up a parking lot
why not?

listenin' late last night
i heard the screen door slam
and a big yellow taxi
took my girl away
now, don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you've got
til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

hey now, now
Don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you got
til its gone
they paved paradise
to put up a parking lot

i dont want give it-
why you want give,
why you want give it all away?
hey hey hey
now you want give it,
ah she wanna give it
cause she givin it all away
now now now

Hey pave paradise
put up a parking lot

“A Horse With No Name” tops my list of Most Hated Songs! Sorry. To me, it’s pure drivel! Again, sorry! Not meaning to offend. Just my opinion. We all have different tastes in Music and Art.

The Blasters - Dry River

I used to play in the orange groves, til they cut down all the trees. Still, I stand on the stumps, and smell blossoms on the leaves.

Hi Fatima! Really don’t mean to be offensive. Great article in Vintage Guitar Magazine with Steve Vai, in which he talks about this very thing. He speaks about people who criticize him. He states that the criticisms are abdo-lutely true, and valid,,,,, to the people who don’t like his music, and he has no quarrel with them.
As soon as I hit “Post,” I thought,,, “Why did I even get involved?”

As a Schubert scholar, I have to add this number from "Winter Journey", one of the most beautiful -- and depressing -- song cycles ever written.

Wow! To Our Children's Children's Children - 1969. In my humble estimation, the Moody Blues' achievement on this album along with the other 4: On the Threshold of a Dream, In Search of the Lost Chord, and Days of Future Past, all made in 1967-1969, comprise rock's single greatest achievement.

It's true life flies faster than eyes could ever see

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


Risky Business

August 24, 2012

As the worldwide financial crisis deepened in 2010, executives of a global banking firm were investigated for deceiving their customers about the risk involved in certain investments they were selling. While promising a high rate of return, the banking firm knew that the investments were destined to fail, leaving those who purchased them with nothing.

Deception is nothing new. Jesus described Satan as one who “does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him . . . for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). The enemy of our souls tells us, “Live only for the present,” when he knows it will result in our eternal loss.

Jesus, on the other hand, did not offer His disciples a life of prosperity and ease but called them to self-sacrifice and identification with Him. After telling them that He would be killed and raised from the dead, Jesus said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it” (Luke 9:23-24).

There are two voices telling us where to invest our lives. It’s risky business to follow the wrong one.

When you hear the Shepherd’s voice
As He calls you, “Come to Me,”
In your life make Him your choice
And His faithful follower be. —Hess
If we hold on to God’s truth, we won’t be trapped by Satan’s lies.

Read: Luke 9:18-27

Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. —Luke 9:24
Bible in a Year:
Jeremiah 21-23
