Jim Croce
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Joseph Croce, pronounced (CROW-chee) (January 10, 1943 – September 20, 1973), popularly known as Jim Croce, was an American singer-songwriter.

Croce scored a handful of hit songs in the early '70s, but died in an airplane crash just as he was beginning to capitalize on his success. He is probably best remembered for the song "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," a #1 hit in 1973.

Time in a Bottle



Time in a Bottle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Single by Jim Croce
from the album You Don't Mess Around with Jim - Recorded 1972
Writer(s) Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with


Time in a Bottle" was a posthumous No. 1 hit for singer-songwriter Jim Croce, reaching the top of the charts in December 1973, three months after his death in a plane crash. The song, written for his son A.J. Croce, appeared on his first album in 1972, You Don't Mess Around with Jim. Croce would subsequently shoot to fame with his summer 1973 hit single "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", just months before a plane crash on September 20, 1973.

Νάντια μου, βάζε, να χαρείς, στο τίτλο του κάθε μηνύματός σου τον τίτλο του τραγουδιού όπως έκανες νωρίτερα για να μην κάνω συνεχώς προσθήκες στα μηνύματα [π.χ. Jim Croce - Time in a Bottle (lyrics and video clip)].

To Time in a Bottle είναι ένα από τα πολύ αγαπημένα μου τραγούδια. Thanks! :-)

These dreams

Once we were lovers
But somehow things have changed
Now we're just lonely people
Tryin' to forget each other's names
Now we're just lonely people
Tryin' to forget each other's names

What came between us?
Maybe we were just too young to know
But now and then
I feel the same,
And sometimes at night I think
I hear you calling my name
Mmm-hmm-mmm these dreams
They keep me going these days

Once we were lovers
But that was long ago
We lived together then
And now we do not even say hello
We lived together then
And now we do not even say hello

What came between us?
Maybe we were just too young to know
But now and then
I feel the same,
And sometimes at night I think
I hear you calling my name
Mmm-hmm-mmm these dreams
They keep me going these days

Alabama Rain

Lazy days in mid July
Country Sunday mornin'
Dusty haze on summer highways
Sweet magnolia callin'

(Chorus)
But, now and then I find myself
Thinkin' of the days,
When we were walkin' in the Alabama Rain

Drive in movies, Friday nights,
Drinkin' beer and laughin'
Somehow things were always right
I just don't know what happened

(Chorus)
But, now and then I find myself
Thinkin' of the days,
When we were walkin' in the Alabama Rain

(Refrain)
We were only kids, but then
I never heard it said
That kids can't fall in love and feel the same
I can still remember the first time I told you I loved you

On a dusty mid July
Country summer's evenin'
A weepin' willow sang it's lullabies
And shared it's secrets

(Chorus)

But, now and then I find myself
Thinkin' of the days,
When we were walkin' in the Alabama Rain
Walkin' in the Alabama Rain

Bad, bad Leroy Brown

Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand 'bout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him "Treetop Lover"
All the men just call him "Sir"

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wear his diamond rings
On everybodys nose
He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Well Friday bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And ooh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
Leroy Brown learned a lesson
'Bout messin' with the wife of a jealous man

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog,

Well the two men took to fightin'
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Operator

Operator, oh could you help me place this call
You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She's livin' in l.a.
With my best old ex-friend ray
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

Isn't that the way they say it goes
But let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

Operator, oh could you help me place this call
'cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
There's something in my eye's
You know it happens every time
I think about the love that i thought would save me

Isn't that the way they say it goes
But let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

Operator, oh let's forget about this call
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time
Oh you've been so much more than kind
And you can keep the dime

Isn't that the way they say it goes
But let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I'm fine and to show
I've overcome the blow
I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

I have to say I love you in a song

Well, I know it's kind of late
I hope I didn't wake you
But what I got to say can't wait
I know you'd understand
Ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Yeah, I know it's kind of strange
But ev'ry time I'm near you
I just run out of things to say
I know you'd understand
Ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Ev'ry time the time was right
All the words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Yeah, I know it's kind of late
I hope I didn't wake you
But there's something that I just got to say
I know you'd understand
Ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Εδώ θα 'μαστε. Και σε καταλαβαίνω απόλυτα. Εγώ γιατί νομίζεις ότι δεν ανοίγω νήματα με μουσική; Κεντάω και δεν αδειάζω. :-)

Και εγώ, γι' αυτό τα ανοίγω κατά κύματα όταν δεν έχω δουλειά. Αλλά υπόσχομαι να επανέλθω σύντομα με παλιούς, αγαπημένους τραγουδιστές που πολλοί δεν τους γνωρίζουν αλλά αξίζει τον κόπο να τους μάθουν έστω και έτσι.

Καλή συνέχεια, πάω να κατεβάσω ένα αρχείο 500 ΜΒ, ν' αρχίσω να δουλεύω, γιατί 24/04 - 02/05/08 το έκλεισα το μαγαζί :-)

Eπίσης, φιλενάς, θα το τσιμπήσω το πρωί. Τώρα θα κατεβάσω το αρχείο και θα κλείσω. Κουράστηκα, δουλεύω σερί σήμερα από τις 7.30 το πρωί :-(

Άντε και καλό μας βράδυ!
