Subject: Lyr Req: Lyrics to a great folk song....
From: GUEST,Kelly
Date: 02 Jun 05 - 12:41 PM

hi everyone who reads this:

I am seeking the identity of song I really like from a mix
cd with no track listing. A female singer. Don't know if
it's trad. or a more recent pluck. Please help if you can!
&
    Song starts: fourhundred thousand miles broke down truck,
    I crawled out of Nashville on a broken down luck.
    Fallen to rust....

    ....(chorus) Hallelujah, baby, hall. she's a rollin
    on home...standing all alone. "
    then later:
    " Tv papers all standing in line to be the first to sell the story of the end of time..."

Thank you, kelly
ps. it's a guitar and fiddle only I think. on the slower side. :)

HALLELUJAH
(Martha Scanlan)

400,000 miles of broke down truck
I crawled out of Nashville on a broken down luck
Fallen to rust at the hems and the seams
She's painted the color of broken down dreams
Rust in the race, we're as thin as a dime
My 58 Apache gets to work on time

Chorus
Singin' hallelujah, hallelujah baby
Hallelujah she's a rollin' on home
Singin' hallelujah, hallelujah baby
Hallelujah standin' all alone

Well the TV papers all standin' in line
To be the first to sell the story of the end of time
Got peelin' paint on the doors and the sides
In all the passin' colors of Oklahoma skies
She's the color of my heart, the color of my jeans
She's a 2-door picture of a broken down queen

Chorus

Well light's just a hundreds of colors I'm told
And it's easy to be blind to the treasures we hold
I'll get up in the mountains, gonna get up high
And I'll take a look around before it all passes by
I'll keep it to my heart, and I'll see to my dreams
And I'll tell it to their cities and their big city scenes

Chorus

400,000 miles of broke down truck
I crawled out of Nashville on a broken down luck
Fallen to rust at the hems and the seams
She's painted the color of broken down dreams
Rust in the race, we're as thin as a dime
My 58 Apache gets to work on time
This 1958 heart rings true
And it's hard to tell the color, but it's always been blue

Chorus

Hallelujah standin' all alone

-- Martha Scanlan

Last.fm has several tracks by Martha Scanlan, but not "Hallelujah." She sounds like an interesting artist.

I love this song! Frequently played on KRUUfm show Crooked Sisters Radio Hour by my friend Lauryn Shapter. I'd wait for it each week & crank up the volume. Finally had to break down & buy my own copy by Reeltime Travelers.

HALLELUJAH (Key of A)
Reeltime Travelers

Four hundred thousand miles of broke down truck
I crawled out of Nashville on a broken down luck
Fallin to rust at the hems and the seams
She's painted the color of broken down dreams
Rust in her race wears thin as a dime
My 58 Apache gets to work on time

Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah she's a rolling on home
You're singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah standing all alone

Fiddle solo

Now the TV papers are standin in line
To be the first to sell the story of the end of time
Got peeling paint on the doors and the sides
In all the passin colors of Oklahoma skies
She's the color of my heart, color of my jeans
She's a two door picture of a broken down queen

You're singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah she's a rolling on home
You're singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah standing all alone

Fiddle Solo

Aw white's just a hundreds of colors I'm told
And it's easy to be blind to the all the treasures we hold
Get up to the mountains, I get up high
And I take a look around before it all passes by
Keep it in my heart now, see to my dreams (seat of my dreams?)
And I'll tell it to their cities in their biggest city scenes

Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah she's a rolling on home
You're singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah standing all alone

Fiddle Solo

Four hundred thousand miles of broke down truck
I crawled outta Nashville on a broken down luck
Falling to rust at the hems and the seams
She's painted the color of broken down dreams
Rust in her race wears thin as a dime
my 58 Apache gets to work on time
It's 1958 heart rings true
and it's hard to tell the color, but it's always been blue

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah she's a rolling on home
You're singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby
Hallelujah standing all alone

Hallelujah standing all alone

Hi. I've been bitten by this song. Trying to put together a fiddle solo for it. Does anyone have any sheet music for the fiddle, or even just the lyrics?

Anyone know of where to get a copy of Reeltime Travelers first CD. Last year they were selling for $75. on Amazon and this year they are $150. I love this band, but that's a lot of money.

I was wondering if anyone knew the chords to Hallelujah (Martha Scanlan). I just learned Little Bird of heaven on the guitar but needed a little help on this one.
Have a great day :)
