Ray Charles Lyrics


Ray Charles has the distinction of being both a national
treasure and an international phenomenon. He started out
from no where; years later finds him a global entity.

Hundreds of thousands of fingers have hit typewriter and
word processor keyboards telling and retelling his story
because it is uniquely American, an example of what we like
to think is the best in us and of our way of life.

The Ray Charles story is full of paradoxes, part and parcel
of the American Dream.Rags to riches. Triumph overcoming
tragedy. Light transcending More...

    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

I'm in 5th grade. My music teacher was joking around and said "okay put the papers down. We are going to sing it without looking at the words." Then we laughed. So I'm going to try to memorize the whole song to amaze him :D

    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

I remember learning this song in grade school, but forgot the beginning and end of the song; only really remembered most of the alphabetical order for the states. I still tend to get mixed up with the M's and the N's.

Moonlight in Vermont - a different ballad struture. | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Moonlight in Vermont performed by Ray Charles

This is a charming example of the American Ballad form, but its unusual chorus structure makes it slightly problematical in some ways. The first, second, and fourth bars of the chorus are all two bars short (six instead of eight). This does nothing to impair its merits as a song but makes it difficult to dance to, and impossible as a sequence dance tune. It has been well received by the jazz community (notably by Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan) and one can see why that is so. The melody is alluring and the harmony equally so

Meaningless? | Reviewer: Carol Deml
    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

We sang this song in All City Choir back in 1978 and I continue to sing it! Every time I am asked if I can recite all fifty states (and there has been a few) this song pops up in my head and I have no problem! It's a great stepping stone for kids just learning their states in geography. It's a good wholesome song for kids to learn and is better than listening to some of the cRAP they have today!

I hit the Road too! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Hit the Road Jack performed by Ray Charles

Hit the Road Jack!
Interesting song, if you generalize as OSS folks habitually are addicted to doing the concept of
"Currency" used in the song.
I was jogging yesterday, with an altered more well recommended form, and i was able to fun faster, but overdid it as usual,
And coincidentally, the lines of the song being played red,

well baby, listen baby, don't ya treat me this-a way
Cause I'll be back on my feet some day.
(Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood)
(you ain't got no money you just ain't no good.)
Well, I guess if you say so
I'm gonna have to pack my things and go. (That's right)

Now i couldnt help but equate currency to my breath. and i was quickly running out of it!
I corrected, and you know what i hit the Road again! Commutative or what!!

Then as soon as i went back home, i took at closer look at the video, sure enough both "arguing parties" smile at the end!!! These Women!!
Was Ray Charles Blind all his life? I honestly do not know. How did he guess that "if she said so, hed have to pack his things and go!"?
