ATF: Tuesdays

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.




Tuesday Afternoon
The Moody Blues
Tuesday
Afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something
Calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

I'm looking at myself
Reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind
So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love
If you'll just come with me
And see the beauty of
Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon

Tuesday
Afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something
Calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

Evening
Has come
To pass

The time
Of day
Doesn't last

Evening
Has earning its place today
I'm tired of working away

Working
Living
It brings

Only way
To have
Those things

Toiling
Has born too many tears
Turn around all those past years

Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
'Til next day

Live all you people
You can see where you're at
It doesn't really hurt you
So it can't be bad

Live all you people
You can see where you're at
It doesn't really hurt you
So it can't be bad

Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away


Tuesday’s Gone
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Train roll on
On down the line
Won't you
Please take me far
Away
Now I feel the wind blow
Outside my door
Means I'm
I'm leaving my woman
At home
Lord yeah

Tuesday's gone
With the wind
Oh my baby's gone
With the wind
Wind
Wind
The wind

And I don't know
Oh where I'm going
I just want to be
Left alone
Well when this train ends
I'll try again
But I'm
Leaving my woman
At home
Lord yeah

Tuesday's gone
With the wind
Tuesday's gone
With the wind
Tuesday's gone
With the wind
My baby's gone
With the wind
Wind
Wind
Train roll on
Tuesday's gone

Train roll on
Many miles from my home
See I'm
I'm riding my blues
Away
Yeah
Tuesday
You see
She had to be free
Lord but
Somehow I've got to
Carry on
Lord yeah

Tuesday's gone
With the wind
Tuesday's gone
With the wind
Tuesday's gone
With the wind
My baby's gone
With the wind
Wind
Wind
Train roll on
On
Because my baby's gone.
I'm riding my blues babe
Tryin' to ride my blues babe
Ride on train
Ride on train
Ride my blues babe
Goodbye Tuesday
Goodbye Tuesday
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Train
Oh train

  1. I was privileged to see the original Lynyrd Skynyrd lineup at Oxford Polytech back in the 1970's. Seeing them live was Awesome especially when they played Freebird. It lives on with me and I was sorry to hear some were killed months later.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Bill!!! Yes, I can imagine that being an awesome concert. Surviving kin put together a really good country/rock band by the name of Van Zant later on.

  2. The words Tuesday afternoon were the only ones I really knew for the Moody Blues song and I don't recall ever hearing the Lynyrd Skynyrd song before.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Geoff!!! It is so good to hear from you again. I hope you-all have received enough rain. Another friend in South Africa has told me that it has not rained in her area for quite some time.
