Music Monday XIII

Hi.
For this week´s MM, I picked a duet with two singers I enjoy.
When I started replacing my old audio tapes by CD´s, the first one I bought was Simon & Garfunkel - Live in Central Park. Although I don´t listen to this album as often as I did, I still like it very much.
The other singer in this duet isn´t Garfunkel. It´s Willie Nelson, which I admire since teen. He looks so much like my father RIP, or vice versa. The song is Homeward Bound:




Homeward Bound Lyrics








I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be,
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll play the game and pretend.
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
Silently for me.



A Good Monday to all!

I always like listening to them. The music is relaxing and soothing. I am glad that you find a resemblance with your dear father. Those are the priceless gifts of life :)
