Crocker's Favorite Song

A--C#m--D--F#m  throughout

Everybody's got their hands up high
Everybody should be touching the sky
But you know you never never can go down
So you slow down
And you walk away
She says good morning to you
And you look away
She asks you just what to do
You don't know what to say
But what can be done
And what can be done for you
I'll tell you now
Where will you go
When nothing's laid out for you

for your freedom he don't need them shed no tears.
for the long distance man.....

Indian Was An Angel

Little star went rollin' up the hill
Asked me to come and dance I said I will
There are the days of preparation still
Somethin's gonna happen on that hill


And all the summoned graces
Manifest in different places
There for us to see
And little star keeps sayin'
Indian was an angel prayin'
Come and patiently
For us ??also in we??
And save a place for me
