QUIET DESPERATION

by Floyd Westerman

My soul is in the mountains
My heart is in the land
I'm lost here in the city
There's so much I don't understand

There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be

I long for you Dakota
Smell of sweet grass on the plain
I see too much meanness
And I feel too much pain

There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be

Sung by Christy Moore - Album: Ordinary Man (1985)

Night Ferry of Quiet Desparation
The lyrics are great to have but the RealAudio click gives me nothing but a page of code. Wonder why. All other RA connections work fine for me. Anybody else?

Allan and Will - I'm sorry for the trouble.

On my machine this RA file sounds fine. I've checked the statistics access for this file: it has been downloaded 14 times. Is anyone out there getting sound? Please let me know.

The problem could be with RealAudio Player's version. I have v. 5.0.If you do not mind, try to download also the other 2 RA files I've posted in the same day.

Ciao

Ezio

QUIET DESPERATION
by Floyd Westerman

D
My soul is in the mountains
   Em
My heart is in the land
   G                    A
I'm lost here in the city
        D
There's so much I don't understand

                           Em        
There's quiet desperation comin' over me
G                A            D        
Comin'                over         me

                        A                             G                D
I've got to                leave I can't                 stay another         day
                A                G                D
There's an         emptiness         inside of         me
        A                G                        D
I can't bear the         loneliness out         here
A                                        G
There's another place I've got to         be
        G                                D
        Another place I've got to        be.


I long for you Dakota
Smell of sweet grass on the plain
I see too much meanness
And I feel too much pain

There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be

You can hear Floyd sing it on youtube as an accompaniment to a video about Leonard Peltier: Click Here.

I have also added a couple of videos of him singing other songs in the youtube permathread.
