Thursday Thirteen

First Lines . . . Do you know them? Answers at the bottom.

1. Got a call from an old friend, we used to be really close. Said he couldn't go on the American Way.

2. When I was young, I never needed anyone. Makin' love was just for fun. Those days are gone.

3. It's another tequila sunrise, starin' slowly 'cross the sky. Said goodbye.

4. Starry starry night. Paint your palette blue and gray. Look out on a summers day with eyes that know the darkness in my soul.

5. If I could save time in a bottle the first thing that I'd like to do is to save every day 'til eternity passes away just to spend them with you.

6. How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?

7. When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand, and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.

8. Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what's on the other side?

9. There'll be no strings to bind your hands, not if my love won't bind your heart.

10. I am just a poor boy though my story's seldom told. I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles such are promises.

11. If I leave here tomorrow would you still remember me? For I must be traveling on now 'cause there's too many places I've got to see.

12. When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

13. Lost and all alone. I always thought that I could make it on my own. But since you left I hardly make it through the day.

  1. Wow, those are some awesome songs, some of my favorites. I really love those lyrics! And I knew most of them. ;)

    My T13 is about my Game of Thrones obsession:

  2. Everything from Don McClean to Simon and Garunkel. I think I knew about 9 of them. I wish we could talk in poetry like that.

  3. There were only three I didn't recognize -- 9, 11 and 13. Mine: Spelling Bee

  4. Gah! Tune worms! Tune worms! Run awaaaaaay!

  5. #13 was the only stumper for me.
    And I'm with Ms Audry: Thanks for the earworms. Thanks a bunch. NOT.
