all night with thee
For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than thee
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la
John Henry and they told me if they let me read this old book I'd
Probably write a song about it. 
And they did and I did and I called it more About
Anybody got any special requests for us to do
John Henry?
Lemme do John Henry then and we'll go...

Johnny Henry's pappy woke him up one midnight
He
sisters' walkin' on her knees
Now did the Lord say that machines ought to take place of livin'?
And what's a substitute for bread and beans? I ain't seen
sisters' walkin' on her knees
Now did the Lord say that machines ought to take place of livin'?
And what's a substitute for bread and beans? I ain't seen
nigh?
I'm a rich merchant ship bound for fair London Town
London Town, London Town
Would you please for to let me pass by?

"Oh no, oh no", cried Henry
"h's" everywhere. 
Speaking English anyway they like. 

You sir, did you go to school? 
Man Wadaya tike me for, a fool? 
Henry No one taught him
"h's" everywhere. 
Speaking English anyway they like. 

You sir, did you go to school? 
Man Wadaya tike me for, a fool? 
Henry No one taught him
nigh?
I'm a rich merchant ship bound for fair London Town
London Town, London Town
Would you please for to let me pass by?

"Oh no, oh no", cried Henry
Lady love rides a big red Cadillac
Buys the hoedown show salt and beans
Goes to church to pray for Lucifer
She milked the male population clean

So
What makes you sail so nigh?
I'm a rich merchant bound for fair London town,
London Town, London Town
Will you please for to let me pass by?

Oh no!
notorious I have been
But never for fame that's what she said
Dear Henry taste my whip
Never to see any words you print

Oh Lola I'm sure that the love
feel the need
To quiz me on books I did not claim to read
Well alright, John Henry dies in a tunnel, hammer in his hand
Steam drill lives on to make
for love on the run
While the man for all seasons
Is lost behind the sun

Henry Plantagenet still looks for someone
To bring good news in his hour
can lead you
Break or defeat you

A destination known
Only by the one
Who's fate is overgrown
Piecemeal can break your home in half
A love is not
can lead you
Break or defeat you

A destination known
Only by the one
Who's fate is overgrown
Piecemeal can break your home in half
A love is not
ya, fine, fine, blew your mind
Finally thought I caught ya and you love was mine all mine

I see you walk by with other guys,
Step, step, steppin'
compassion
He lives in the love
That lives in our hearts

Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry
Well, there was this movie I seen one time
About a man riding 'cross the desert and it starred Gregory Peck
He was shot down by a hungry kid trying
always be remembered by what I did for love
Cause all I've ever done that really matters is what I did for love
Yeah it's what I did for love
Yeah yeah
walks
Lola Montez so beautiful
Shady and a tempered dame
Blinding your eyes with her spider dance

Well notorious I have been
But never for fame that's
been
But never for fame that's what she said
Dear Henry taste my whip
Never to see any words you print

Wherever she walks
She will be captivating
senses
For this love game's expensive

I walk in a trance
Got a wounded soldier stance
The everyday geezers stares
Throw me off balance

Now nothin' holds
to rise above His fears

And as I watch Him struggle up that hill
Without a thought of turning back
I cannot help but wonder

What did He die for when He
that I will always be remembered
By what I did for love
See all I've ever done that really matters
Is what I did for love
