Tuesday Night Lyrics Challenge. . . The only common demonimator . . .I love all these songs.[More:]

1. Eye cream and thigh cream, how 'bout a get high cream

2. How'r you gonna make your way in the world, woman, when you're not cut out for working

3. I raise my arm against it all and catch the bride's bouquet

4. I left his dead ass there by the side of the road

5. You were thowing your shoes right up over the wire

6. I'm not the cheatin' kind, it snuk up from behind

7. And I'm not gonna play your game anymore

8. Can't be singing louder than the guns. . .

9. It's time to tell the truth. These things have to be faced

10. Oh won't you come with me, and take my hand. . .

(It may be 0730, PDT before I get back to adjudicate. . . .)
Oh fuck. . MI, please? Fucking Zinfandel anyway. . .

#4 is Me and My Uncle by John Phillips (mostly known via the Dead)

#8 is When I'm Gone by Phil Ochs - one of my favorite songs since I was a teenager. It still chokes me up.

#10 - In-a-Gadda-da-Vida

Funny, I never imagined that there could be more than one song with the line "You were throwing up on your shoes." But #5 is not "Lilacs in Ohio" by John Hiatt, which also features that line.

I'm completely at a loss on these.

True mudpuppie. Not throwing up on your shoes. . but throwing your shoes up. Um, no. . .not that either exactly.

Miko and octothorpe. . .correct on your guesses.

7 feels like it could be anything... quite a common sentiment in songs.

But it might be The Byrds. Don't know the name of the song, though.

#9 Indoor Fireworks, Elvis Costello.

Gaspode, correct. .Feel a Whole Lot Better. . .the most covered song ever, in that era, by high school bands.

chococat, correct.

#5. . .Easy Bake Ovens by Girlyman.

I doubt that anyone would have gotten that one.

While #3 is not from the Cohen's "Hallelujah" it can totally be sung to the tune!

OK. In the interests of closure, here are the rest:

1. Sleater-Kinney, Ballad of a Lady Man
2. Warren Zevon, The French Inhaler
3. Leonard Cohen, The Gypsy's Wife
6. The Wailin' Jennys (and Annabel Chvostek), Devil's Paintbrush Road
