Subject: Lyr Add: PERFECT NIGHT
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 15 Jan 12 - 12:00 PM

I found these lyrics at Holly Near's web site and tweaked them a bit to agree with what I hear on the recording named below. She may have recorded the same song more than once and the words may be slightly different.


PERFECT NIGHT
Words by Holly Near, music by Jeff Langley & Holly Near, ©Hereford Music
As sung by Holly Near on "Simply Love: The Women's Music Collection" (2000).

A woman is dressed in style tonight,
Got a three piece suit and a tie tonight.
There's a polished glow on her face in spite
Of her look of amusement;
And she will dine with her true love,
Take in a bar or two,
And nothing short of a perfect night will do.

The gal is dressed for work tonight.
She's got dusty jeans and some boots tonight.
There's a lover's look on her face in spite
Of her farming intention;
And she will plant with her true love,
Take a break in the barn, maybe two,
And nothing short of a perfect night will do.

The jock is dressed in wool tonight.
She's got a baseball glove and a cap tonight.
There's a competitive look in her eye in spite
Of her generous heart;
And she'll play ball with her true love,
Take in a home run or two,
And nothing short of a perfect night will do.

All the rules have been broken.
They're not talking about the weather.
A gentleman asks, "Are you ladies alone?"
They smile and say, "No, we're together!"

A lady is dressed in silk tonight.
She's got a glittering gown and a stole tonight.
There's sequin on her cheek in spite
Of her sparkling eyes;
And she will dance with her true love,
Put on a show or two,
And nothing short of a perfect night,
Nothing short of a perfect night—
When the gals are out, don't you know that it's true?—
Nothing short of a perfect night will do.

Subject: ADD: Fight Back (Holly Near)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 04 Jun 17 - 01:43 AM

FIGHT BACK
Written by Holly Near
PeHP Source: Songsheets 1983-84

By day I lived in terror, by night I lived in fright
For as long as I can remember,
A lady don't go out alone at night, no.
A lady don't go out alone at night, no.

But I don't accept the verdict
It's an old one anyway
'Cause nowadays a woman
Can't even go out in the middle of the day!

CHORUS:
And so we gotta fight back, in large numbers
Fight back, I can't make it alone.
Fight back, in large numbers
Together we can make a safe home,
Together we can make a safe home.

Women all around the world
Every color, religion and age
One thing we've got in common,
We can all be battered and raped
We can all be battered and raped

Some have an easy answer
Buy a lock and live in a cage
But my fear is turning to anger
And my anger is turning to rage
And I won't live my life in a cage!

Subject: ADD: Riverboat (Holly Near)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 08 Jun 17 - 03:05 AM

RIVERBOAT
(identified as "by" CJ Harding)

I ain' gonna step down off that riverboat - I ain't gonna step down off that riverboat
Cause if I step down off that riverboat, I don't think that I'm a gonna float.
Cause there's mud just below that sparklin' water – There's mud just below that sparklin' water
And it's soft, soft, deep and warm, settled in a river after a storm
Mud just below that sparklin' water

There's just two things that you get in life – One is joy and the other is strife
You're the only one that can decide
Understanding your ups and downs – It's hard to make decisions count
One step forward and two steps back again.
Chorus (half)

Give me some music some foot stompin' kind – Some blues played with a bottle neck slide
You know I'm just a misplaced country girl
So why don't you let your troubles lose – Let the music take away your blues
Let's roll up our sleeves and get right down to it.
Chorus (half) Music break through one verse

Finding time to feel real nice – We all get tired of payin' the price
For the bargain basement sale we found next door
We all start lookin' over the fence – for the thing that will bring us happiness
It's love you know that keeps me satisfied.
Full Chorus

The tune sounds very much like "Down by the Riverside"

RIVERBOAT
(Holly Near)

CHORUS
I ain't gonna step down off of that riverboat (2x)
'Cause if I step down off of that riverboat
I don't think that I'm agonna float
'Cause there's mud just below that sparklin' water
Yes there's mud just below that sparklin' water
And it's soft, soft deep AND warm
settled 'neath the river once in a storm
Mud just below that sparklin' water

Once I had a daughter strong and fine
Grew up and said she didn't want to be mine
I said I understood and I felt the same
Now she runs a school for girls
And each one tougher than a redwood burl
They're growin' up stronger than the world into which they came / So I ain't...

When o when will I ever learn
It's not just fire that makes me burn?
It's not just ice that cools my flaming skin
But if I give up it'll cook me good
And that ain't the road to sisterhood
'Cause where I'm going ain't the same as where I've been
