Seems as thought I've heard those lyrics before. I'll be interested to see what the song is.

So lemme get the rules straigh. If someone gives these lyrics,

and I think it is this song, can I look up the lyrics to this song and

see if the given lyrics are in fact in the song I think it is?

And will that disqualify me? I think it shouldn't, as you're

still going on memory and experience when you're trying to decide what

the song is.

Oops. I re-read the first post. It's supposed to be classic

rock stuff, and since neither Dave Matthews nor Johnny Cash is

generally considered that, I'll give it up and post a new new

one. It's called "Long Black Veil," first recorded by Johnny Cash

in 1964 and very well done by The Dave Matthews Band on their "Listener

Supported" album.

Maybe this is closer to what you have in mind:

Now I've gained some understanding of the lonely world that we see

Things that I once dreamed of have become reality

Those walls that still surround me still contain the same old me

Just one more who's searching for the world that ought to be

You're right, but I was able to identify the song with certainty. I fashioned this rule to keep people from disputing answers when it's clear the person knows the tune. Good to know the name, though. I knew it was the first tune on Hemispheres.


"Treating people just like pawns in chess. Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!"

Name that tune!
