Don't know the first song, but here's Huw's

STRUCK IT RIGHT THIS TIME
(Huw Williams)

Out in the desert in the heat and dust
Old man is searching, looking for the big one
He doesn't listen to a thing he's been told
he's digging and drilling for that old black gold
You tell him that he's crazy, he'll never find a thing
But you wouldn't know when you hear him sing

CH "I don't worry; I don't mind
Cause I know I struck it right this time"

Midnight is coming and the party is light
everyone waiting patiently for midnight
She's had a year full of real hard times
Say's it's going to vanish with the "Auld Lang Syne"
Say's she'll find Love, Say's she'll have it all
But the higher you fly the harder when you fall

Quicker than a river running into the sea
Everyone is running but he can run faster
This time he knows he has the rhythm that it takes
and every step is bringing him closer to the tape
But anything can happen, things can go wrong
one minute you're up and the next you're gone

Note after note and chord after a chord
there has to be a melody hidden in here somewhere
Every kind of harmony and tone has been scored
Seems like I'm searching for that old lost chord
Maybe you can find it, maybe you can see
Well here's that you have better luck than me

ch & repeat

Probably we should change the thread title, since the lyrics posted are not for Next Time Around.
We could have a separate thread for that song.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks very much 'Wandering Minstrel'.
Hi Genie, no that's the title of the song and I have it on a CD of Bram Taylor's. It's a great song and would luv to learn to sing at my local folk club.

    Hi, Dave - What Genie is saying, is that it's confusing if you request two songs in one thread. Click here for the "Next Time Around" thread.

And for the record, to give credit where credit is due, it is Huw Williams, not Hugh.
    I think that was at least partly my mistake - I copied the name from the first post. I fixed it now.

CRAFT, it gets us all in the end :)

On looking at it again, the second line of the second verse should read:

Young girl waiting patiently for midnight...
