36. Carole King - Tapestry

Carole King

Carole King was already famous as a writer of Tin Pan Alley songs in the '60s. She became more famous with the release of Tapestry in 1971. The album soon became one of the biggest-selling LPs of all time. The music is loose, earthy, casual, intimate, and tough; Carole King covers all the emotional ground of the post-liberated woman.

01.- I Feel The Earth Move

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Ooh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can't stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Oh, darling, when you're near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are something I just can't tame
I've just got to have you, baby

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get a hot and cold all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down,
Tumbling down, tumbling down...


02.- So Far Away

So far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're just time away

Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
How I wish I could, but you're so far away

One more song about movin' along the highway
Can't say much of anything that's new
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it bein' close to you.

But you're so far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're so far away

Yay-uh-ay-eee
Oh, so far away

Travelin' around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothin' else to do but close my mind
I sure hope the road don't come to own me
There's so many dreams I've yet to fin-ind

But you're so far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
And it doesn't help to know you're so far away

Yay-uh-ay-eee
Oh, so far away
Yay, you're so faaaaaar away


03.- It's Too Late

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time
There's something wrong here there can be no denying
One of us is changing or maybe we've just stopped trying

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

It used to be so easy living here with you
You were light and breezy and I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy and I feel like a fool

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it

There'll be good times again for me and you
But we just can't stay together don't you feel it too
Still I'm glad for what we had and how I once loved you

But it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it

Oh, it's too late, my baby
It's too late, now darling
It's too late


04.- Home Again

Sometimes I wonder if I'm ever gonna make it home again,
it's so far and out of sight.
I really need someone to talk to,
and nobody else
knows how to comfort me tonight.

Snow is cold, and rain is wet.
Chills my soul right to the marrow.

I won't be happy till I see you alone again.
Till I'm home again and feeling right.

I wanna be home again and feeling right
[repeat]


05.- Beautiful

You've got to get up every morning With a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beatiful as you feel

Waiting at the station with a workday wind a-blowing
I've got nothing to do but watch the passers-by
Mirrored in their faces I see frustration growing
And they don't see it showing, why do I?

You've got to get up every morning With a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beatiful as you feel

I have often asked myself for reason for sadness
In a world where tears are just a lullabye
If there's any answer, maybe love can end the madness
Maybe not, oh, but we can only try

You've got to get up every morning With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
The people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beatiful as you feel


06.- Way Over Yonder

Way over yonder
is a place that I know
Where I can find shelter
from hunger and cold.
And the sweet tasting good life
is so easily found
Way over yonder
that's where I'm bound.

I know when I get there,
the first thing I'll see
Is the sun shining golden (sun shining golden)
shining right down on me.
Then trouble's gonna lose me
worry leave me behind
And I'll stand up proudly
in true peace of mind.

Talkin' bout a, talkin' bout a...

Way over yonder
is a place I have seen
In a garden of wisdom
from some long ago dream

May be tomorrow
I'll find my way
To the land where the honey runs
in rivers each day
And the sweet tasting good life
is so easily found
Way over yonder - that's where I'm bound
Way over yonder - that's where I'm bound


07.- You've Got A Friend

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there you've got a friend

If the sky above you grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, running yeah yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there yes I will

Now ain't it good to know
That you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, running, yeah yeah yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there yes I will
You've got a friend
You've got a friend
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
Ain't it good to know
Ain't it good to know
Ain't it good to know
You've got a friend
Oh yeah, now, you've got a friend
Yeah baby, you've got a friend
Oh yeah, you've got a friend


08.- Where You Lead

Wanting you the way I do
I only wanna be with you
And I would go to the ends of the earth
Cause darling to me that's what you're worth

Chorus

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

Chorus

I always wanted a real home
With flowers on the windowsill
But if you wanna live in New York City
Honey, you know I will
(yes I will, yes I will)

I never thought I could get satisfaction
From just one man
But if anyone could keep me happy
You're the one who can

Chorus (x2)

Oh baby, oh, I'm gonna follow where you lead
I'm gonna follow where you lead
(I'm gonna follow where you lead)


09.- Will You Love Me Tomorrow

Tonight you're mine
Completely.
You give your love
So sweetly.
Tonight the li-i-ight
Of love is in your eyes,
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting
Treasure
Or just a moment's
Pleasure?
Can I belie-e-eve
The magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words
Unspoken
You say that I'm the only one,
But will my heart
Be broken
When the night
(When the night..)
Meets the mor-
(Meets the mor..)
-Ning sun.

I'd like to know
That your love
Is love I can
Be sure of.
So tell me no-o-w
And I won't ask again.
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?


10.- Smackwater Jack

Now Smackwater Jack, he bought a shotgun
Cause he was in the mood for a little confrontation
He just let it al hang loose
He didn't think about the news
He couldn't take no more abuse
so he shot down the congregation

You can't talk to a man with a shotgun in his hand
Shotgun

Now Big Jim the chief stood for law and order.
He called for the guards to come and surround the fortress
Now from his bulldog mouth, as he lay the fosses south
Came he proudly got the ride, to clean the streets
For our wives and daughters.

You can't talk to a man when he don't want to understand
No No No No

The account of the capture wasn't in the papers
but you know they hang the smack right then
Instead of later.
You know the people were quite pleased,
cause the out-law had been seized
And in the whole it was a very good year,
for the undertaker.

You can't talk to a man with a shotgun in his hand
Shotgun
Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun


11.- Tapestry

My life has been a tapestry
Of rich and royal hue;
An everlasting vision
Of the ever-changing view;
A wond'rous woven magic
In bits of blue and gold;
A tapestry to feel and see;
Impossible to hold.

Once amid the soft silver
Sadness in the sky,
There came a man of fortune;
A drifter passing by.
He wore a torn and tattered cloth
Around his leathered hide
And a coat of many colors;
Yellow, green, on either side.

He moved with some uncertainty
As if he didn't know
Just what he was there for
Or where he ought to go.
Once he reached for something
Golden hanging from a tree
And his hand came down emp-ty.

Soon within my tapestry,
Along the rutted road,
He sat down on a river rock
And turned into a toad.
It seemed that he had fallen
Into someone's wicked spell
And I wept to see him suffer,
Though I didn't know him well.

As I watched in sorrow,
There suddenly appeared
A figure gray and ghostly
Beneath a flowing beard.
In times of deepest darkness
I've seen him dressed in black.
Now my tapestry's unraveling;
He's come to take me back.
He's come to take me back.


12.- (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But your love was the key to peace my mind

Cause you make me feel, you make me feel, you make me feel like
A natural woman

When my soul was in the lost-and-found
You came along to claim it
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it
Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm living for
Cause if I make you happy I don't need no more

Cause you make me feel, you make me feel, you make me feel like
A natural woman

Oh, baby, what you've done to me
You make me feel so good inside
And I just want to be close to you
You make me feel so alive
Cause you make me feel, you make me feel, you make me feel like
A natural woman


13.- Out In The Cold [Live]

I only wanted to play
I thought what he didn't know wouldn't hurt him anyway
But he found out and someone else gave him her hand to hold
And suddenly I find myself out in the cold

He trusted me all the time
I thought I could see another man and he would still be mine
Well yesterday I had a good thing worth more than gold
Today he's got a truer love and I'm out in the cold

I had a love warmer than fire
But I listened to my desire
Now yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's heart aches
I'm payin' (payin') for my mistakes
Now girl, take a tip from one who knows
If you open up a new door, you may find the old one's closed

So be true to your good man
Take a lesson from the story I have told
Or you just might get-a left now out in the cold
You just might get-a left now out in the cold

Don't let yourself get left now out in the cold
Don't let yourself get-a left now out in the cold


14.- Smackwater Jack [Live]

Now Smackwater Jack,
He bought a shotgun
Cause he was in the mood
For a little confrontation.
He just let it all hang loose,
He didn't think about the noose.
He couldn't take no more abuse
So he shot down the congregation.

You can't talk to a man
With a shotgun in his hand.

Now, Big Jim the chief
Stood for law and order (yes he did now)
He called for the guard to come
And surround the border.
Now, from his bulldog mouth,
As he led the posse south,
Came the cry, "We got to ride
To clean up the streets
For our wives and our daughters!"

You can't talk to a man
When he don't wanna understand.

The account of the capture
Wasn't in the papers, (oh no)
'Cause you know, they hanged ol' Smack right then
Instead of later.
You know, the people were quite pleased
'Cause the outlaw had been seized
And on the whole, it was a very good year
For the undertaker.

You know, you know, you can't talk to a man
With a shotgun in his hand (shotgun in his hand)

Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
Oh Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
Oh Smackwater Jack Yeah
