looking for a song with lyrics about loyalty


Recommended Posts

It's for school. So, anybody have songs with lyrics about loyalty? Classic rock preferably, but anything you can come up with is good.

So far all I can think of is "With a little help from my friends" and "Your my best friend" by Beatles and Queen

Beach Boys - Be True to Your School

also,

Patsy Cline's version of

Half as Much

written by Curley Williams

recorded (2/13/62)

If you loved me half as much as I love you

You wouldn?t worry me half as much as you do

You?re nice to me when there?s no one else around

You only build me up to let me down

If you miss me half as much as I miss you

You wouldn?t stay away half as much as you do

I know that I would never be this blue

If you only loved me half as much as I love you

If you loved me half as much as I love you

You wouldn?t worry me half as much as you do

I know that I would never be this blue

If you only loved me half as much as I loved you

Actually, "With A Little Help From My Friends" is about drugs. You might wanna omit that one from a school project. Good tune, though.

I thought so, but I wasn't sure. I have never really read the lyrics, but I do remember he says "I get high with a little help from my friends."

So far I'm sticking with "Your my best friend" by Queen, but I'd still like suggestions

How about staying loyal your family and Dad's wishes...

PATCHES

Clarence Carter

SPOKEN:

I was born and raised down in Alabama

On a farm way back up in the woods

I was so ragged the folks used call me patches

Papa used to teas me about it

But deep down inside

He was hurt because he done all he could do

My papa was a great old man

I can see him with a shovel in his hand digging

Education he never had

But he did wonders when the time got bad

A little money from the crops he raised

Helped pay the bills we made

For months he'd been sick and down in the dumps

When he tried to get up life would kick him back down

One day papa called me to his dyin bed

Put his hands on my shoulders And in tears he said

Patches, I'm depending on you son

To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you

SPOKEN:

Two days later papa passed away

I became a man that day

So I told mama I was gonna quit school

But she said that was daddys strictest rule

So every morning before I went to school

I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too

Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on

I wanted to leave and run away from home

But I would remember what my daddy said

With tears in his eyes on his dyin bed

He said, "Patches, I'm depending on you son

To pull the family through. My son its all left up to you

SPOKEN:

Then one day a strong rain came

And washed all the crops away

And at the age of thirteen I thought I was carrying

The weight of the whole world on my shoulders

And you know, mama knew what I was going through, Cause

Everyday I had to work the fields

Cause that's the only way we got our meals

You see, I was the oldest of a family

And everybody else depended on me

Every night I heard my mama pray

Lord, give him the strength to face another day

Though years have passed and all the kids have grown

The Angels took mama to a brand new home

But, No people,I never quit

My daddy's voice still rings through the fields

Sayin, "Patches, I'm depending on you son

To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you

Patches, I'm depending on you son

Hi Batman. Do you know this song from 1986? "You're A Friend Of Mine", Jackson Browne and Clarence Clemmons.

YOU'RE A FRIEND OF MINE

Striking out?

Well count me in

I'm gonna stand right by your side through thick or thin

Ain't no doubt

Gonna win

A walk through hell ain't bad compared to where we've been

Oh you can depend on me

Over and over... over and over

Know that I intend to be

The one who who always makes you laugh until you cry

And you can call on me until the day you die

Years may come and go

Here's one thing I know

All my life

You're a friend of mine

That argument

I can't forget

We fought so hard I don't think I've recovered yet

The girls we knew

Who thought you were cool

I never introduced my favorite ones to you

Oh you can depend on me

Over and over... over and over

Know that I intend to be

The one who who always makes you laugh until you cry

And you can call on me until the day you die

Years may come and go

Here's one thing I know

All my life

You're a friend of mine

Oh you can depend on me

Over and over... over and over

Know that I intend to be

The one who who always makes you laugh until you cry

And you can call on me until the day you die

Years may come and go

Here's one thing I know

All my life

You're a friend of mine

Oh you can depend on me

I'll be fine

cause you're a friend of mine

yeeaah

I'll be fine

cause you're a friend of mine

Great choice there, edna.

How about The Pretenders' " I'll Stand By You "?

(musical interlude)

Oh, why you look so sad?

Tears are in your eyes

Come on and come to me now

Don't be ashamed to cry

Let me see you through

'cause I've seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you

You don't know what to do

Nothing you confess

Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad

Don't hold it all inside

Come on and talk to me now

Hey, what you got to hide?

I get angry too

Well I'm a lot like you

When you're standing at the crossroads

And don't know which path to choose

Let me come along

'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you

I'stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

Take me in, into your darkest hour

And I'll never desert you

I'll stand by you

And when...

When the night falls on you, baby

You're feeling all alone

You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

Take me in, into your darkest hour

And I'll never desert you

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won&''t let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

CRY TO ME

(Russel)

Rolling Stones, Eric Burdon

When your baby leaves you all alone

And nobody call you on the phone

Doncha feel like crying

Doncha feel like crying like crying like crying

C'mon baby, cry to me

When you're all alone in your lonely room

And there's nothing but the smell of her perfume

Doncha feel like crying

Doncha feel like crying like crying like crying

C'mon baby, (c'mon) cry to me

Nothing could be sadder than a glass of wine alone

Loneliness loneliness, it just a waste of your time

But you don't ever you don't ever have to walk alone

You see, so c'mon take my hand

C'mon walk with me

When you're waiting for a voice to come

In the night there is no one

Doncha feel like crying

Doncha feel like crying like crying like crying

C'mon baby, cry to me

C'mon baby, that's right cry to me

Yes, I want you to come on baby

C'mon c'mon cry to me

I want you to c'mon baby

C'mon c'mon and cry to me

Yeah c'mon baby c'mon I want you to cry cry cry to me

Yeah I want you to cry cry cry cry cry cry cry

I want you to cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry...

FRIENDS WILL BE FRIENDS - QUEEN

Another red letter day

So the pound has dropped and the children are creating

The other half ran away

Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber

Got a pain in the chest

Doctor?s on strike what you need is a rest

It?s not easy love but you?ve got friends you can trust

Friends will be friends

When you?re in need of love they give you care and attention

Friends will be friends

When you?re through with life and all hope is lost

Hold out your hands cos friends will be friends right till the

End

Now it?s a beautiful day

The postman delivered a letter from your lover

Only a phone call away

You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number

As a matter of fact

You?re getting used to life without him in your way

It?s so easy love cos you got friends you can trust

Friends will be friends

When you?re in need of love they give you care and attention

Friends will be friends

When you?re through with life and all hope is lost

Hold out your hands cos friends will be friends right till the

End

It?s so easy love cos you got friends you can trust

Friends will be friends

When you?re in need of love they give you care and attention

Friends will be friends

When you?re through with life and all hope is lost

Hold out your hands cos friends will be friends right till the

End

Friends will be friends

When you?re in need of love they give you care and attention

Friends will be friends

When you?re through with life and all hope is lost

Hold out your hands cos right till the end-

Friends will be friends

WAITING ON A FRIEND - ROLLING STONES

Watching girls go passing by

It ain?t the latest thing

I?m just standing in a doorway

I?m just trying to make some sense

Out of these girls go passing by

The tales they tell of men

I?m not waiting on a lady

I?m just waiting on a friend

A smile relieves a heart that grieves

Remember what I said

I?m not waiting on a lady

I?m just waiting on a friend

I?m just waiting on a friend

Don?t need a whore

I don?t need no booze

Don?t need a virgin priest

But I need someone I can cry to

I need someone to protect

Making love and breaking hearts

It is a game for youth

But I?m not waiting on a lady

I?m just waiting on a friend

"Bargain" - The Who

I'd gladly lose me to find you

I'd gladly give up all I had

To find you I'd suffer anything and be glad

I'd pay any price just to get you

I'd work all my life and I will

To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed

I'd call that a bargain

The best I ever had

The best I ever had

I'd gladly lose me to find you

I'd gladly give up all I got

To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop

I'd pay any price just to win you

Surrender my good life for bad

To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain

The best I ever had

The best I ever had

I sit looking 'round

I look at my face inm the mirror

I know I'm worth nothing without you

And like one and one don't make two

One and one make one

And I'm looking for that free ride to me

I'm looking for you

I'd gladly lose me to find you

I'd gladly give up all I got

To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop

I'd pay any price just to win you

Surrender my good life for bad

To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain

The best I ever had

The best I ever had

"Where You Lead" - Carole King:

Wanting you the way I do

I only want to be with you

And I would go to the ends of the earth

Cause darling to me that's what you're worth

Where you lead, I will follow

Anywhere that you tell me to

If you need, you need me to be with you

I will follow where you lead

If you're out on the road

Feeling lonely, and so cold

All you have to do is call my name

And I'll be there on the next train

Where you lead, I will follow

Anywhere that you tell me to

If you need, you need me to be with you

I will follow where you lead

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill

But if you want to live in New York City, honey, you know I

will

I never thought I could get satisfaction from just one man

But if anyone can keep me happy, you're the one who can

And where you lead, I will follow

Anywhere that you tell me to

If you need, you need me to be with you

I will follow where you lead

My Love Will Not Let You Down - Bruce Springsteen

Sometimes it might seem like it was planned

For you to roam empty hearted through this land

Though the world turns you hard and cold

There's one thing mister, that I know

That's if you think your heart is stone

And that you're rough enough to whip this world alone

Alone buddy there ain't no peace of mind

That's why I'll keep searching till I find my special one

Great choice there, edna.

How about The Pretenders' " I'll Stand By You "?

Good ones Uncle and Edna. :coolio:

I was trying to think of that Pretenders song, but I kept mentally coming up with "Don't Get Me Wrong". And BOTW is my #3 all time top song. I put my TOP 10 on 'public display' in a new thread today. :)
