New Campfire Songs - Lyrics

Wonderful World Tonight
Jump the line
Work is over
Don't go home
Till much later
Let's not play grownup
Let's go wild
Let's run in the woods
This is the great new life!
And it's a Wonderful World Tonight...

Jump the fences
Dodge the junk cars
We'll go dancing
Through the graveyard
And those who move swiftly
Won't be left behind
Things happen quickly
This is the great new life!

Fake the bird call
The wolf howl
Treehouse district
Is buzzing now
I smell fear
I feel alive
I like it here
This is the great new life!
And it's a Wonderful World Tonight...

Words and music by Jeff Davis

Who Got The Pearls Grandma died at fifty-eight Her best friend cried three hours straight "She had eyes like a little girl's... and by the way, who got the pearls?" Another friend might intimate Her brother was ten years too late "She had a heart like a little girl's... and, by the way, who got the pearls?" Friends and family gathered 'round From Michigan to the Puget Sound "There MUST be someone in this world... And that someone knows who got the pearls..." Grandma died at fifty-eight Her soul rose up through the real estate She had a smile like a little girl's and by the way, who got the pearls? Words and music by Jeff Davis

A T.V. Guide In The Olduvai Gorge Who built these houses? Who took apart these trees? With a shovel and a toothbrush They have brought me to my knees Now I'm dresed for the invasion These not much I'm afraid to find Just a half-forgotten prospect In the ruins of my mind It's a TV Guide in the Olduvai Gorge... Birds who'd rather walk Stony statues shedding tears Though I trust these words I read Still I can't believe her ears Now she beckons with a pitchfork And a crackling cathode face But even when I'm next to her I feel a little out of place Like a TV Guide in the Olduvai Gorge... These's a shyness in your shoulder And a tremor in your tread Yes I can tell you don't belong here Now that I have trained my head So let me clean your windshield While you're resting for the climb And I can help you understand Why we can never be in time Like a TV Guide in the Olduvai Gorge...

A Girl, Her Sister and a Train I ran into a pretty girl And her sister We were on a train The train was burning Up the tracks Their hair fell in their eyes And down their backs A girl, her sister and a train... They came from Canada Southwest Ontario Every time they talked to me It sounded like stereo We crossed plains and mountain ranges Salt flats covered in snow We saw ten thousand places Hiways never go A girl, her sister and a train... We waited in the field Beside the station The girls were real Was the train just our imagination? The sun dropped behind a bluff We sang a folksong I held them in my arms As the train rolled all night long Lovers drift together Traverlers drift apart Our roads will end forever Right back where they started A girl, her sister and a train... If you won't lvoe me In your house on the hill I know for all my life These sisters will A girl, her sister and a train... Words and music by Jeff Davis

The Neighborhood Phrenologist So it's the Age of Information This is the Land of Opportunity And I know nothing But that just makes it all so new to me Everybody's selling something That's what I heard him say He sold me his shadow I wear it everyday I laugh to keep from trying To believe what I see I only think about the barrel When it's pointed at me When you're doubtful of salvation But certain of your sin It's not polite to point your finger Just volunteer your chin The hellow leaf is upon me I wear my sleep shade walking in the park Not so I won't see you I'ts just that I love the dark I laugh to keep from trying To believe what I see I only think about injustice When it happens to me It never happens to me Words and music by Steve Wagner
