Hi folks!

I'm looking for the lyrics of the song «Peace and Happiness» by Ted Hawkins that can be found on his album «Watch your steps».

Thanks

DT, Olga, and different personnals pages on the net about Ted Hawkins. I wrote to one of them and he said that he didn't know that tune (???). That was a couple of month ago. I keep on searching.

I must say that the album «watch your step» is published by Rounder (2024).

SP

This song now appears in more than one place.

After Hawkins' death (he died before this thread was started) it took time for people to record the tribute album, it must have been in the works most of these years. "Cold and Bitter Tears" was finally released in 2015, I can't find out what the label is, but it can be bought online. There is an uncredited track, an old demo of Ted Hawkins himself -- I think the title is "Great New Year." As for "Peace and Happiness," it, with the other credited songs, is covered by an artist paying tribute to the songwriter.

There exists another Ted Hawkins thread, but I suppose it is just as well to keep the two separate, as this is a lyric-request thread.

The lyric request is over 16 years old but here they are.



I need someone to say they need me, even if they don't mean a word.
I don't need some stupid someone, complaining about something she heard.
I'd marry anybody tomorrow, just to run from trouble and sorrow.

Gotta find peace and happiness, before I die, yeah
Gotta find me somebody, before I get old, yeah

I have only one life before me, musn't worry 'bout missing that.
So when the thing come down to leaving, I'm the first one to get my hat.
I'll eat that bones and gravy, oh I'll let you drive me crazy.

Gotta find peace and happiness, before I die, yeah.
Gotta find me somebody, before I get old, yeah.

Now if you love me you got to show me, don't expect for me to stain my knees.
I know that you can live without me, but I'll be so much at ease.
Just to have somebody to hold me, both arms wide open and folded.

Gotta find peace and happiness, before I die, yeah
Gotta find me somebody, before I get old, yeah

This is a hopeless situation, I no longer want to see this place.
I'm gonna leave this house tomorrow, kicking dirt in your mamma's face.
I'm leaving in stormy weather, just to get myself together.

Gotta find peace and happiness, before I die, yeah
Gotta find me somebody, before I get old, yeah
Gotta find me somebody, before I get old, yeah.
