Thursday Thirteen

This Thursday I've combined two meme's. The first is Thursday Thirteen of course. The second is a modified meme that I saw over at Bond's Big Leather Couch. Write down the best opening lyrics of your favorite songs ever. It's supposed to be your own top ten list, but since this is Thursday, I added three more to make it my Thursday Thirteen. These are not necessarily listed in any particular order of preference. They're just thirteen of my favorites.

13. "If I was a gamblin' man, never would'a let you play your hand
with a broken down cowboy like me" Song: Broken Down Cowboy by John Fogerty

11. "Thanks, but no thanks, baby, I've already got more trouble than I need" Song: Honky Tonkin (I Guess I've Done Me Some) by Delbert McClinton

8. "Well since she put me down, I've been out doin' in my head." Song: Help Me Rhonda by The Beach Boys

6. "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me" Song: Amazing Grace written by John Newton

5. "There is a house in New Orleans, they call the Rising Sun, and it's been the ruin of many a poor boy and God I know I'm one." Song: House of The Rising Sun by The Animals

4. "There's a peace I've come to know know, though my heart and flesh may fail." Song: I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin

An interesting list! Interesting to see "Rod the Mod" making it in here... and any list with Chuck Berry is an instant winner!
