From the recording Out On Luke's Highway
SWEET HARMONYWritten by: Johnny Irwin
An old man stops his taxi.. somewhere near the Bowerythen he stacks a lady's groceries.. on the backseat for a tipand as they wind around the clovers (corners).. she is staring at his picture and then he hears his whole life.. on her lips
"Say, you once were big on T.V. .. your singing style was Countryyou were married to Sweet Harmony.. is she still living too?"Then she tears off some brown bag.. and she hands it up for signing..Sweet Harmony... I signed for me and you...
Chorus 1:Sweet Harmony.. couldn't live with me... and watch me die a falling starShe landed on El Paso sands.. She married some big business man..Sweet Harmony and me.. we fell apart
I went down... in the Bowery.. just like a match dropped in whiskey'til the price of my performance.. couldn't settle at the barthen, I made one more record.. but, I heard the age and the whiskeyand the sounds that were missing.. broke my heart
Chorus 2:Sweet Harmony.. How you shined with me... Through flames of fame and golden youthand now I drive a Bowery cab.. and when I sign an autograph...
Sweet Harmony... I cry for me and you c2006 Miss Rebecca Music
