'Fifty' Song Lyrics & Info

1. Out of Tune (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

I’m tired of my life being out of tune

I’d sit under stars and sing for the moon

Don’t know where I’m going

Just don’t tell me to stay

 

I’ve got it in my head I’m gonna play guitar

Gonna leave this house and head for a bar

Been scared so long but

Now I think I know the way

 

Fingers aching I’ll be making music with my friends

New world man takin’ a stand on the road again

 

I’m tired of my life being out of tune

I’d sit under stars and sing for the moon

Don’t know where I’m going

Just don’t tell me to stay

 

I’ve got it in my head I’m gonna play guitar

Gonna leave this town and live out of my car

Been scared so long but

Now I think I know the way

2. The Road I’ve Known (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

There's a road that I've known, that I've gone down too many times

And it's the road that I've known that I'm goin' down

 

Oh the road that I've known, it ain’t got no painted lines

But it's the road that I've known that I'm goin' down

 

Never gonna say that I'm never gonna fall again

I could throw it all away and I'd never ever get it back again

Gotta find a way, gonna get away, gotta get home...

 

Yeah the road that I've known, a gravel run through the dark pines

And it's the road that I've known that I'm goin' down

 

There's a road that I've known, that I've gone down too many times

But it's the road that I've known that I'm goin' down

 

Dave Sills – lead vocal, acoustic 6-string and 12-string guitars

3. Lament for New Orleans (Mike and Dave Sills) © 2019

 

There’s something about the end of summer

Warm waters rule the day

And storms are born by name and number

Disaster’s surely on its way

 

Dark black clouds surround the city

Winds they turn her bright to grey

Pontchartrain and Mississippi

Dikes can’t hold the surge at bay

 

You’d better get high, the water’s rising

Ten feet now, it’s not surprising

Nowhere to go, everybody’s crying

The blues are back, the jazzman’s sighing

Remember the day the Big Easy blew away

 

She’s come too far as a city

To have her soul washed away

But songs that sound so picture pretty

Give way to wails of death today

 

Oh you’d better get high, the water’s rising

Twelve feet now, it’s not surprising

Nowhere to go, everybody’s crying

The blues are back, the jazzman’s sighing

Remember the day the Big Easy blew away

 

Dave Sills – lead vocal, acoustic guitar, mandolin

Allister Bradley – keys, vocal

Ken Sills – bass, vocal

5. Coldwell Bay (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

Train pulled in for water and some Nicoll Brothers trout

Hauled up past the ice house while the nets were drying out

Gid and Eileen Nicoll had the biggest house around

On the rocky north shore of Superior, in this lonely fishin’ town

Well Gideon played the fiddle, Eileen she played guitar

For miners, teacher, loggers, preacher, and the Mountie from afar

And ol’ one-armed Bert, the CPR clerk, and the painters from down south

They waltzed while the scent of Eileen’s flowers drifted 'round the house

Lake was cold, life was hard

But they danced the dark away

Saturdays at the Nicoll place

In a town on Coldwell Bay

The lamprey came, stole all the fish, shut the business down

Gid and Eileen, they met their fate on the tracks at the edge of town

Government men, they razed it all, gone without a trace

But every spring Eileen’s flowers bloom all ‘round the old Nicoll place

 

Dave Sills – lead vocal, acoustic guitar

Alice Sills – vocal

Miranda Mulholland - fiddle

 

6. The Tightwad Blues (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

Hey my little lady, got something for me?

Been waiting for you baby to bring me two or three

 

Throw ‘em in the truck, we’ll take a little luck tonight

Another Village run, yeah they’ve got your number oh my my

 

‘Cause I don’t have the time

We ain’t got the money

The bills are piling up, you can pay them later honey

Gonna pick me up cheap smokes

From the boys next store

It’s a fine way to live if you’re not

Always lookin’ for more

 

Save a little baby, now don’t throw none away

Maybe we can make it and not have to pay

 

Throw a little party, tell everybody “bring your own”

You’ll never fill your cup if you’re always keepin’ up with the Jones

 

Dave Sills – lead vocal, acoustic guitar, harmonica

Allister Bradley – keys, percussion

Ken Sills – bass, vocal

7. Had a Little Heaven (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven the bells they rang

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven the choirs they sang

 

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven was on my knees

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven well glory be!

 

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven the angels spoke

Had a little heaven on Sunday morning

Had a little heaven my soul awoke

 

Calling All Angels to the Temple

‘Cause Love’s the Higher Law

Love is Everything

8. In My Arms Again (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

It’s been so long since I’ve seen your face

Seems like a thousand years

But I know someday I’ll find a way

I’ll be holding you in my arms again

 

It’s been so long since I’ve held you close

Seems like no end of tears

But I know someday I’ll find a way

I’ll be holding you in my arms again

 

Fate left me standing here all alone

You kept me warm now you’re gone

I miss all your love, I wish I could say

I’d be coming home to you

 

Fate left me stranded here all alone

You kept me warm now you’re gone

I miss all your love, I wish I could say

I’d be coming home to you

 

It’s been so long since I’ve seen your face

Seems like a thousand years

But I know someday I’ll find a way

I’ll be holding you in my arms again

9. A Different Kind of Sun (Dave Sills) © 2019

 

Hey you, you’ve got a lot of nerve

They crowned you king when a cage is all you deserve

Yeah you, it’s like some disease

You’re rulin’ with fear and hope is down on her knees

 

Well I’ll tell you something

There’s a new day dawning

Look out ‘cause it’s rising

 

It’s a different kind of Sun

The one that we’ve been waiting on

And we’re headin’ for new birth

Rising up from the Earth

It’s a different kind of Sun

That’ll shine down on everyone


Hey you, you’ve got a lot of nerve

You’ve been pissing in the beer of those that you’re supposed to serve

Yeah you, it’s like some disease

You’re looking for a forest by cuttin’ down every tree

 

Well I’ll tell you something

There’s a new army marching

It’s on the horizon

 

It’s a different kind of Sun

The one that we’ve been waiting on

Might not be the cure

But one thing’s for sure

It’s a different kind of Sun

That’ll shine down on everyone

 

It’s a different kind of Sun

The one that we’ve been waiting on

And we’re headin’ for new birth

Every soul on the Earth

Sees a different kind of Sun

That’ll shine down on everyone
