That would be Tapestry by Carole King.

Here are my lyrics: (I'll put a lot of the lyrics to make it easier)

Under the sun, there is nothing to hide.
Under the moon, a stranger waits inside.
People disappear, the music fades away.
Splashing through the rain, I'll dream with them one day.

It's raining, raining, on the streets of New York City.
It's raining, raining, raining deep in heaven.

I may have wasted all those years.
They're not worth their time in tears.
I may have spent too long in darkness, in the warmth of my fears.

I know this, but I think I will give others a turn ... *blush*

Trial of Tears - It's Raining!

Love this song - it's an easy one!

John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind
Zol and Denny workin' for a penny
Tryin' to get a fish on the line
In a coffee house Sebastian sat
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

Creeque alley by Mama & the Papas - great song

Well, I am pretty sure I am right so here is mine (another easy one)

Now Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would --
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
And she said --
"Tell me are you a Christian child?"
And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

Here's a fav of mine! The kids loved it when they were little - I used to play it for them on the piano and we'd all sing!

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What do we think we might see

that is a beautiful song

It sure is -- and the lyrics are much deeper than you expect from a children's song.

Here's another little song that's deeper than it seems at first glance:


I'm building a houseboat in heaven
To sail upon deep and holy seas
I'm building a houseboat in heaven
And it's welcome aboard, you sweet, sweet peace

The cabin is made of solid silver
The hull, it is made of solid gold
She ain't much along the lines of floatin'
But she's yours, babe, to have and to hold

I rode my ol' guitar on up to heaven
But heaven didn't feel too much like home
So I'm headed out across that lonesome ocean
In my ruby-studded houseboat to roam...

Heavenly Houseboat Blues.

Changed my mind! Here's one I used to play on the guitar for the kids when they were little - another fav of their's!

When it's midnight on the meadow
And the cats are in the shed
And the river tells a story
At the window by my bed
If you listen very closely
Be as quiet as you can
In the yard you'll hear him
It is .............

I was wondering what happened to ya!!! Glad you got your power back!

Yes, Heavenly Houseboat Blues by the late, great Townes Van Zandt! I was afraid I might have gone too Texan on you with that one... most people only know Townes as the author of "Pancho & Lefty," which Willie recorded so beautifully...

Good work!
