That song line poetry thing

Snagged from amberdreams

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs.
Post the poem that results.
The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.



A poem for alternating voices.
For accompaniment by harmonica and fiddle or steel guitar.



My Sisters and I


Listen I know it's been hard
It really breaks my heart
Someone's always coming around here, trailing some new kill

       What is this land America so many travel there
       And after the storm
       Tá na caoirigh ag ithe an gheamhair


There's something in the way she moves
Love I get so lost, sometimes
Amazing grace how sweet the sound

       Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
       I'm a town in Carolina, I'm a detour on a ride
       Mama said there'll be days like this


If you see me walking down the street
If I could have all the world and all it owns
Guess I got what I deserve

       There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range
       The red sandstone, it fell
       Ubi caritas et amor, deus ibi est


Spare me your judgments and spare me your dreams

      Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky



Bonus points if you can pick out the songs. Some of them are pretty well known.

I love this song! James Taylor - Sweet Baby James. And yes, Amazing Grace and Mama said there'll be days like this (The Shirelles) ... they're very familiar songs.

Yeah, I'm surprised only one of his ended up showing up in the 21 random songs. Seeing the variety you post makes me think you'd recognize a lot of the musicians there even if the songs aren't ones you know.
