    Lyrics, Poetry and Prose VII

    A place to share some words of beauty, inspiration, and fun. This week we feature some well-known verses about indulging in illegal drugs – which unlike those nasty smoking-cigarettes songs featured last week – is nowadays more socially acceptable. Click on the name of the piece to get a video or more information. You have some favorite lyrics? Please share…

    Take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
    Down the foggy ruins of time
    Far past the frozen leaves
    The haunted frightened trees
    Out to the windy bench
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
    With one hand waving free
    Silhouetted by the sea
    Circled by the circus sands
    With all memory of fate
    Driven deep beneath the waves
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow

    Mr. Tambourine Man Singer and Songwriter, Bob Dylan

    Coming in from London from over the pole
    Flying in a big airliner
    Chicken flying everywhere around the plane
    Could we ever feel much finer
    Coming into Los Angeles
    Bringing in a couple of ki’s
    Don’t touch my bags if you please
    Mister customs man, yeah

    Coming into Los Angeles Singer and Songwriter, Arlo Guthrie

    Driving that train, high on cocaine,
    Casey Jones you better watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Casey Jones The Grateful Dead; Songwriters: Jerome J. Garcia, Robert C. Hunter
