I've seen fire and I've seen rain 2

Once I met the devil
He was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
Said -you can have your pick-
But when he laid that paper on me
And he showed me where to sign
I said thank you very kindly
But I’m in too good-a mood to mind

Blood, Sweat & Tears - Hi-De-Ho

The Devil went down to Georgia
He was lookin’ for a soul to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
He was willing to make a deal

Charlie Daniels

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us;
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Three little words
Oh what I’d give for that wonderful phrase
To hear those three little words
That’s all I’d live for the rest of my days

Nat King Cole. Three Little Words

Bing Crosby

When I am sitting in traffic some afternoon
Or bored to death in some waiting room
I am gonna close my eyes and picture you

Today. Brad Paisley

Pictures of Lily
Made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily
Helped me sleep at night
Pictures of Lily
Solved my childhood problem
Pictures of Lily
Helped me feel alright

– The Who

Every time I see your face
It reminds me of the places we used to go
But all I’ve got is a photograph
And I realize you’re not coming back anymore

Ringo Starr - Photograph

Some letters sad and blue
A photograph or two
I see a rose from you
Among my souvenirs

Among My Souvenirs: Connie Francis

What’ll I do with just a photograph
To tell my sorrows to?

What’ll I Do, Alison Krauss, and many others

My mind is filled with thoughts of you
I think about the days of two
I search the room but you’re not there
Your perfume lingers everywhere

But it’s only a memory
Of what our love was going to be
Only a memory
Broken bits of you and me
Only a memory
Only a memory

–The Smithereens

Thanks for the memory

Bob Hope

Thank you Lord, for all You’ve done for me
Folks without homes Living out in the streets
And the drug habit some say They just can’t beat

Wanna Say Thank You Lord. Walter Hawkins

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down a road and back again
Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant

  • Andrew Gold

Come, ye thankful people, come
Raise the song of harvest home
All is safely gathered in
E’er the winter storms begin

traditional hymn

Come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the earth
And move the rolling sky

— Fairport Convention

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

You know who

A change (A change would do you good)
Would do you good (A change would do you good)
I think a change (A change would do you good)
Would do you good (A change would do you good)

Sheryl Crow

And one peculiar point I see,
As one of many ones of me.
As truth is gathered, I rearrange,
Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,
Perpetual change.


Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Diana Ross
