Songbird Lyrics Game

Name the song that the lyrics belong to and/or an artist who performed it. Let us know which ones you knew, even if it has already been answered. (I'm on a blogging break so I won't be able to respond.)
1) I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth-Meeting so many people-Who are trying to be free

2)A long time forgotten the dreams that just fell by he way...

3)Well we all shine on, Like the moon and the stars and the sun

4)The preacher talked to me and he smiled, Said, "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile. Now for once in your life you're alone, but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone."

5)Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise..

6)They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum-And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them

7)I wonder how your feeling -There's ringing in my ears- And no one to relate to 'cept the sea

8)Now Andy, did you hear about this one? Tell me, are you locked in the punch? Andy, are you goofing on Elvis?

9)But now the days grow short-I'm in the autumn of the year-And now I think of my life as vintage wine-from fine old kegs-from the brim to the dregs-And it poured sweet and clear.....

10)Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream -I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been -To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen

11)Well, I feel so broke up, I wanna go home.

12)She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati-On a snow white Christmas Eve

13)Lonely feelin' deep inside -Find a corner where I can hide -Silent footsteps crowdin' me Sudden darkness, but I can see ..

14)I follow the Moskva Down to Gorky Park ..

15)Goodbye Joe- me gotta go -me oh my oh

16)Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding, And I'm bound to keep on riding. And I've got one more silver dollar

17)Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty-Sound of their breath fades with the light-I think about the loveless fascination

18)You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life -See that girl, watch that scene....

19)Goodbye to all my friends at home-Goodbye to people I've trusted-I've got to go out and make my way-I might get rich you know I might bet busted

20)Guess who just got back today? Those wild-eyed boys that had been away -Haven't changed, haven't much to say-But man, I still think those cats are great

Lines from famous Poems:

1) Burning with star-fires, but never consuming, Flash its broad ribbons of lily and rose.

2) A plow, they say, to plow the snow. They cannot mean to plant it, no--Unless in bitterness to mock -At having cultivated rock.

I'm not good at these games, but I love reading what others say. I love that shot of the warbler!

Wow, you guys are amazing! Only 12, 14, and 17 are undone--let's see:
12. no idea
14. Back in the USSR by the Beatles???? (no idea!)
17. Under the Milky Way Tonight--was it The Church? (I'm trying to remember my MTV-watching days!)

Mary said...

Oooops. I'm too late. I knew a few of these but the people above me would be great on "Name That Tune".

Larry said...

You guys/gals did great!
Lynne-Good job with number 9 on the title.I didn't know ray Charles sang this one-I'm familiar with the Sinatra version-everyone else had Sinatra but wrong song.
Dzugman-Good guess with the church-you were right.
Number 12 was a Carrie Underwood tune which I just through in there in case there were any idol fans who might know.
14- was a Scorpions tune-called winds of change.
