Jay & The Americans Yellow Forest

Saw you in the cloud late one night

Dancing for a living in blue light

You took a glance at me, we overlooked it

My eyes were searching for the secret

As to whether we’d fit and I said

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

There it will be where we both can see

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

There’s a world that’s made for you and me

Time went racing on as the month passed

I caught you once again in your dance act

Your attitude has changed, you smiled at me

Now I can tell where we both should be

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

(Yellow Forest)

There it will be where we both can see

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

There’s a world that’s made for you and me

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

(Yellow Forest, Yellow Forest)

There it will be where we both can see

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

(Yellow Forest, Yellow Forest)

There’s a world that’s made for you and me

We’ll meet in the Yellow Forest

(We’ll meet)

(Yellow Forest, Yellow Forest)

There it will be where we both can see

Jay & The Americans Do I Love You?

Do I want you for my baby?

Do I want you by my side?

Do I wanna run and kiss your lips

And say you’re my loving guy?

(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

Do I need your arms around me?

Do I live my life for you?

Do I always feel so warm each time

I look in your eyes of blue?

(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

And do I need you every minute of the day?

And would I die if you should ever go away?

And does it mean so much to feel your tender touch?

Do I love you? Do I love you?

Oh I swear I’m gonna get you

If it takes me all my life

I’ll hope and pray and dream and sleep

‘Cause I’m gonna be your wife

(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

Jay & The Americans Come A Little Bit Closer

In a little café just the other side of the border

She was just sitting there giving me looks that made my mouth water

So I started walking her way

She belonged to bad man José

And I knew, yes I knew I should leave

When I heard her say

Come a little bit closer, you’re my kind of man

So big and so strong

Come a little bit closer, I’m all alone

And the night is so long

So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so inviting

That I just couldn’t resist just one little kiss so exciting

Then I heard the guitar player say

Vamoose, José’s on his way

And I knew, yes I knew I should run

But then I heard her say

Come a little bit closer, you’re my kind of man

So big and so strong

Come a little bit closer, I’m all alone

And the night is so long

Then the music stopped, when I looked the café was empty

Then I heard José say, “Man, you know you’re in trouble plenty”

So I dropped my drink from my hand

And through the window I ran

And as I rode away I could hear

Her say to José

Come a little bit closer, you’re my kind of man

So big and so strong

Come a little bit closer, I’m all alone

And the night is so long

Jay & The Americans Dawning

I woke up this morning, the sun’s shining brightly

And loving each leaf on each tree

Remembering the way that your lips touched mine lightly

Yes, your love is dawning on me

Yes, your love is dawning on me

Flowers are bloomin’, the robin is singing

And my heart is in harmony

The sweet things you said have all to my head

Oh yes, your love is dawning on me

Yes, your love is dawning on me

Perfume and roses and blue skies and laughter

The world is a great place to be

What used to be sadness has turned into gladness

Yes, your love is dawning on me

Yes, your love is dawning on me

Jay & The Americans The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore

Loneliness

Is a cloak you wear

A deep shade of blue

Is always there

The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you’re without love, baby

Emptiness

Is a place you’re in

With nothing to lose

But no more to win

The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you’re without love

Lonely, without you baby

Girl I need you

I can’t go on

The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

When you’re without love

The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

Jay & The Americans You Were On My Mind

When I woke up this morning

You were on my mind

And you were on my mind

Hey I got troubles

I got worries

I got wounds to bind

So I went to the corner

Just to ease my pain

I said, “Just to ease my pain”

Hey I got troubles

I got worries

I came home again

But I woke up this morning

You were on my mind

You were on my mind

I got troubles

I got worries

I got wounds to bind

I got a feeling

Down in my shoes, I said

“Way down in my shoes”

I got to ramble

I got to move on

I got to walk away my blues

But I woke up this morning

You were on my mind

You were on my mind

Jay & The Americans Message To Martha

Spread your wings for New Orleans

Kentucky bluebird, fly away

And take a message to Martha, message to Martha

She sings each night in some café

In her search to find wealth and fame

I hear Martha has gone and changed her name

It’s a year since she was here

Kentucky bluebird, fly away

And take a message to Martha, message to Martha

Tell her I love her more each day

As the train pulled out down the track

Martha promised she’d soon be coming back

Oh, tell her how my heart just breaks in two

Since she journeyed far

And even though her dreams of fame fell through

To me she will always be a star

Spread your wings for New Orleans

Kentucky bluebird, fly away

And take a message to Martha, message to Martha

Tell her to start for home today

When you find her please let her know

Rich or poor, I will always love her so

Fly away, Kentucky bluebird

Fly away, Kentucky bluebird

Fly away, fly away, fly away

Jay & The Americans Gypsy Woman

From nowhere through a caravan

Around the campfire light

A lovely woman in motion

With hair as dark as night

Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark

That hypnotized me with love

She was a gypsy woman,

She was a gypsy woman

She danced around and round to a guitar melody

From the fire her face was all aglow

How she enchanted me

Oh, how I’d like to hold her near

And kiss and forever whisper in her ear

I love you, gypsy woman

I love you, gypsy woman

All through the caravan

She was dancing with all the men

Waiting for the rising sun

Everyone was having fun

I hate to see the lady go

Knowing she’ll never know

That I love her, I love her

She was a gypsy woman

A gypsy woman, a gypsy woman, a gypsy woman

Jay & The Americans Something In My Eye
