Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.


Johnny Rodgers is an internationally-celebrated singer-songwriter, pianist, music ambassador, Broadway star, and recording artist who is described by Stephen Holden, from The New York Times, as an entertainer “who has show business in his bones” with “fused elements of Billy Joel, Peter Allen and Johnny Mercer.”

He can be heard on numerous recordings, soundtracks, radio and TV spots. He has recently performed with the symphony orchestras of Moscow, St. Louis, San Diego, New Jersey, Phoenix, Forth Worth, Winnipeg, Calgary and Spokane.

Lyrics

Mary Jean

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

I like to watch the moon rise high
She likes to wake and watch the day begin
She likes to drink the bright blue sky
And wash it down with Lake Michigan
Misunderstandings always seem misunderstood
And satisfaction's so much easier
than it should be to
Find when I'm with my. . .

Mary Jean

Oh, Mary Jean I will always love you
More than one song could ever say
Mary Jean with the sun above you
You're the first day of May...

I love to hear her laugh out loud
On rolling meadows and deserted shores
She loves to love me in a crowd
In subway stations and department stores

I know I have a lot of habits left to lose
But if I only had one habit left to choose, I'd be
Fine with only my. . .

Mary Jean

Home to Mendocino

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

I've got my ear against the track
and I can hear that train a-hummin'...
The smoke is risin' from the stack.
I'm gonna climb aboard and ride.
And when I meet that misty mornin' mountain air,
The sun will rise and I will feel it shine.
I spent the weekend earnin' money for my fare.
I'm gonna ride it down the line...'cause I'm

Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino.

Got my guitar strapped to my back
and I can feel my fingers strummin'...
The colors fade from blue to black
across a sky so dark and wide.
But when I'm buried in you golden-blossom hair,
The sun will rise and I will feel it shine.
I may not have much,
but I've got love enough to share
And I'm comin' back to make you mine...'cause I'm

Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino.
This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are...

I've wandered far for far too long.
I thought I'd find a love more true,
But now I know that I was wrong.
And now I know what I should do...
I'm comin' home to you.

Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino.
This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are...

Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino.
This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home...Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are...

She

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

The lady looks so perfect dancing on the shore,
With curves so lovely, keep you comin' back for more.
With moves so fluid they could rival seven seas,
Within a moment you'll be down on your knees.

She powders up and you hit every party scene,
A royal couple that could challenge kings and queens.
She's got a body built for censored magazines,
And her end sure justifies all her means,

Though she says she loves you,
You don't have a clue.
Oh, she says she loves you,
But there's someone she loves more,
Can you guess who?

You're so infatuated you're too blind it, see
She'll clip the green right off you like a bonsai tree.
Her favorite subjects start with "I," and "my," and "me."
She says she loves you, but she really loves ... she.

You're so infatuated you're too blind to see
She's got the goods to give you but they're not for free
Her favorite subjects start with "I," and "my," and "me."
She says she loves you, but she really loves ... she.

She says she loves you, but she really loves ... she.

Midday Moon

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

In the absence of shadow
Where could I hide out from your glow?
Like a pearl of reflection,
Showing me worlds I'll never know.
Still It feels so surprising
How you enchant me from afar,
With your face hypnotizing
Heavenly motion of a star...

Midday Moon, momentary magic,
Much too soon you will fade away.
Night will fall innocently tragic.
Midday Moon I'd die to make you stay.
Midday Moon, momentary magic,
Much too soon you will fade away.
Night will fall innocently tragic.
Midday Moon I'd die to make you stay.

I'd die to make you stay. Midday Moon, I'd die.... To make you stay

Is It the Way?

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

I'd be lying if I didn't say that I've had my share of a little bit of heartache.
What's as loud as the silence of saying goodbye?
I'd be crying if I didn't know that there's no one spared of a little bit of heartbreak.
All I needed to learn was to try not to try.
It isn't hard to understand.
She holds the answer in her hand ...

Is It the Way she sees right through me?
Is it the secret she has found?
Is It the Way I hear her laughing
Even when she's not around?
Is It the Way I see her dancing,
A moment she doesn't know I'm there?
Is It the Way she looks?
The way she knows the way I care?

I'd be lying if I didn't say that I've done my fair share of howling for the daybreak.
What's as lost as a victim without any crime?
I've been searching but I couldn't find any peace of mind in a little love for love's sake.
All I needed to learn was that time takes its time.
It takes a lot to be a man. She looks at me and understands ..

Is It the Way she sees right through me?
Is it the secret she has found?
Is It the Way I hear her laughing
Even when she's not around?
Is It the Way I see her dancing,
A moment she doesn't know I'm there?
Is It the Way she looks?
The way she knows the way I care?

Sweet Georgia Smile

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

What could I ever pull out of my sleeve that would make you believe what I swear?
Nickels and pennies, I haven't got any more money to show you I care.
But I'd empty these pockets to buy fancy rockets to light up your name in the air;
Earrings that dangled and necklaces spangled wtih diamonds like starlights,
But neither would show you that...

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No, and I'll never stop 'til I climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it, or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while...
For that Sweet Georgia Smile.

Where do the days go? They vanish like rainbows; before we can touch them they fly.
And who know why all of us live on this ball of dust, waiting and wondering why?
The only conclusion is it's all illusion, so pick up your head and don't cry.
No need ofr sorrow; if there's no tomorrow, I'll still be beside you.
My soul will reside with you...

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No, and I'll never stop 'til I climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it, or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while...

'Cause I'll keep you smiling as time takes its toll,
Kissing your lips when they're tender and old;
And when day becomes night and the night becomes cold,
You'll never notice, 'cause I'll still be holding you...

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No, and I'll never stop 'til I climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it, or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while...
For that Sweet Georgia Smile.

Box of Photographs

Written By: Johnny Rodgers, Richard Barone

I never claimed to be a wise man, but I know the time is fading too fast.
How will I ever find a future when I spend the present thinking of the past?
Unhappy accidents in unimagined places that I can't seem to remember to forget...
A flash of fantasies of old familiar faces and I can't erase the traces of them yet...

A million laughs...
A box of photographs...

I couldn't keep from being near you, though I knew that I would always be outclassed.
How will I ever find my faith now that I lost the only thing I thought would last?
I'd take some snapshots just to prove I wasn't dreaming and I'd stash them in a folder of regrets.
I guess I thought I could hold on to them forever; well, a dreamer will deserve all that he gets.

In cluttered stacks
Of grays and blacks...
A million laughs...
A box of photographs...

The wind is good today.
I'll watch them fly away.
The wind is good today.
Fly away...
Fly away...

They flutter fast
In grays and blacks...
Flying past where we once took our chances...
Free at last,
A million laughs...
A box of photographs...

I never claimed to be a wise man, but I know the time is fading too fast...

The Best Of You In Me

Written By: Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers and Richard Barone

Every slip, every fall,
Every catch of every baseball,
Every time I needed someone looking over my shoulder…
Every tear, every trial,
Ever since I was a child,
You were with me all the while,
Even as I got older.

I see the best of you in me.
Is that your smile in the mirror?
Your voice in every song I sing,
In every little thing I see
The Best of You in Me.

Every spring, every fall,
Every last long distance phone call,
Every time I needed answers that were honest and true…
You were my education,
Every single situation,
Each and every graduation
I’d look out and see you.

I see the best of you in me.
Is that your smile in the mirror?
Your voice in every song I sing,
In every little thing I see
The Best of You in Me.

Time marches on through everything.
Tomorrow becomes yesterday.
It’s hard to hold onto anything,
But all that you taught me is only a memory away.

Every slip, every fall,
Every pitch of every baseball
Any time they need someone there to be honest and true…
Every tear, every trial,
Every step of every mile,
I’ll be with them all the while
Thinking “What would you do?”

‘Cause I see the best of you in me.
Is that your smile in the mirror?
Your voice in every song I sing,
In every little thing I see
The Best of You in Me.

Bound Together

Written By: Words by Johnny Rodgers and Danny Mallon; Music by Johnny Rodgers

I see the rising of the ocean,
I hear the crying of the land,
I feel the winds of change in motion,
A loss of innocence at hand.

All the people on the lonely street
Walking by me as they watch their feet
They’re missing what’s front of them
Not a smile or a word to share,
Not a notion or a thought that they’re connected,
Every one of them.

But we are all bound together, bound forever,
We’re bound to fight.
But we are all bound together,
And all together, we can make it right.

I hear the angry voices rising,
I feel a shifting of the tide.
And it’s so sad and unsurprising, we’re all united in divide.

All the fighting in the name of gods,
Getting even to increase the odds,
Their missing what’s in front of them.
Not a moment or a song of prayer
Not a notion or a thought that they’re connected,
Every one of them.

But we are all bound together, bound forever,
We’re bound to fight.
But we are all bound together,
And all together, we can make it right.

We can keep the fire burning,
Never learning to get along,
Or we can reach out for each other,
So come on brother, together we are strong.

Come on help me now, help me now,
Help me sing this song.

We are all bound together, bound forever,
We’re bound to fight.
But we are all bound together,
And all together we can make it right.

We are all bound together,
Bound forever, bound together
We are all bound together, bound forever,
We’re bound together.

Cry For Freedom

Written By: Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers and Richard Barone

Cry For Freedom
Music and lyrics by Johnny Rodgers and Richard Barone

So many years look at them go...
So many tears, look at them flow...
When do they end? Where do they go?
I don’t know, I don’t know...

Look at their face, look at it glow...
Look at this place, take it in slow...
Look all around, what do we know?
As above, so below...

And if you’re gonna cry, then cry out loud
(Let the whole world hear you)
Turn your face to the sky, and cry out proud
(Let the whole world heal you).
There’s no where to hide, hang on for the ride
And let out a cry for freedom.

It’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be all right
We’re gonna be all right
Just hold on tight for one more night...

And if you’re going to cry, then cry out loud
(Let the whole world hear you)
Turn your face to the sky, and cry out proud
(Let the whole world heal you).
There’s no where to hide, hang on for the ride
And let out a cry for freedom.

Let out a cry… let out a cry.. for freedom
It’s gonna be all right. It’s gonna be all right.
We’re gonna be all right.

Lord Let The Angels Sing

Written By: Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers

One more year, I hardly can believe we made it through,
Feels so far away. ..
Bright and clear above the midnight sky I see a star
Greet the brand new day.

I hear the church bells chime to tell the world its Christmas time.
Hang the lights upon the tree.
It came back right on cue to bring us all a better view
Of what the world can be...

Hold close to the ones you love, there's a time for coming home.
When the eagle is with the dove and they sail above the ocean foam,
Then let the season ring, bring glory to the newborn King.
Lord, let the angels sing!

One more night, to light the fire with family
And friends on Christmas Eve
So hold 'em tight and make the moment last before it ends;
Seems hard to believe...

I know the storm still rages on above the wars we wage,
And though it rolls across the sky,
I hear an angel choir with voices like a healing fire,
A song to make our spirits fly!

Hold close to the ones you love, there's a time for coming home.
When the eagle is with the dove and they sail above the ocean foam,
Then let the season ring, bring glory to the newborn King.
Lord, let the angels sing!

A song of peace!
Alive like spring!
A song of Joy!
On golden wing...

Hold close to the ones you love, there's a time for coming home.
When the eagle is with the dove and they sail above the ocean foam,
Then let the season ring, bring glory to the newborn King.
Lord, let the angels sing!

Hold close to the ones you love, there's a time for coming home.
When the eagle is with the dove and they sail above the ocean foam,
Then let the season ring, bring glory to the newborn King.
Lord, let the angels sing!
Lord, let the angels sing!

Do It Right
Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers

I found out on Tuesday,
Someone broke the news,
They finally let me know
You’re letting go.
Wish you could have been the one
to call and say “What’s done is done,”
A real goodbye.
It’s not like you to act so shy.

Pick up the phone and call me.
Meet me out for coffee.
Give me one more chance with you tonight.
Say it in my ear
before you up and disappear.
If you’re gonna do it,
Do It Right.

It’s prob’ly just as well
you didn’t have the chance to tell
me all your reasons why
This is goodbye.
I just want you to know,
Although I’m not as perfect as a man could be,
I tried to give the best of me.

Pick up the phone and call me.
Meet me out for coffee.
Give me one more chance with you tonight.
Say it in my ear
before you up and disappear.
If you’re gonna do it,
Do It Right.

‘Cause I have a right to hear it,
Hear it straight from you.
I’m drownin’ in these rumors
and I don’t know what to do.
So come on, babe, just say it.
Tell me you don’t care.
Don’t you think that honesty is fair?

Pick up the phone and call me.
Meet me out for coffee.
Give me one more chance with you tonight.
Tell me loud and clear
before you up and disappear.
If you’re gonna break it,
Come on, babe… I can take it.
If you’re gonna do it,
Do It Right.

A Neti POT Man
By Johnny Rodgers

I am a neti pot man
Nothing cleans my sinus like a neti pot can
Don’t’ know when the neti began
But I am a neti pot man

Well you better not mess with a neti pot man
Better join in with my neti pot plan
Better not mess with a neti pot man
I am a neti pot man

When my nose is swollen and dry
Too much air conditioning maybe that’s why
Stirring that salt - tilt my head to the side
And hope it don’t splash in my eye

Well you better not mess with a neti pot man
Better join in with my neti pot plan
Better not mess with a neti pot man
I am a neti pot man

We are the neti pot band
Ready to bring neti all over the land
No need for a better health plan
Come join the neti pot band.

Well you better not mess with a neti pot man
Better join in with my neti pot plan
Better not mess with a neti pot man
I am a neti pot… neti pot…neti pot man

Miss Dixie

Written By: Johnny Rodgers

MISS DIXIE
Words And Music By Johnny Rodgers

Well, I went down to New Orleans
'Cause I heard her callin' out for me.
She said, "Son, you've got to try you
Some bayou hospitality."
But without any warning,
How ever could I know?
She'd love me 'til the morning
And she'd never let me go.
So if you wanna find me,
That's where I'll be, I guarantee.

'Cause you can't contain the thunder
Of Dixie basses way down low
When they're slowly walkin' under
Those rusty trumpets as they blow.
And when that clarinet is set to
Free that Melody,
The notes I hear it belt
Begin to melt all over me.
So if you wanna find me,
Deep down in Dixie's where I'll be.

Last night, I hit the Quarter
To do it up in the ol' style.
And ain't that just like a lady
To tease me with that Creole smile?
She danced around until I
Nearly drowned in ecstasy,
Much deeper down in Dixie than I
Ever thought I'd be,
And I'd like to tell you finally,
Miss Dixie made a man of me.

And I'd like to thank her kindly,
Miss Dixie made a man of me.

Strong We Stand

Written By: Johnny Rodgers/Brian Wilson

From the mountains, to the rolling sea
In this land of brave and free
There’s a pride among the people
A hope for everyman
From every home to every steeple
Strong we stand.

There’s a father with mouths to feed
There’s a mother with hearts in need
With the mystery of tomorrow and the future that they plan
In the face of fear and sorrow
Strong they stand
Strong they stand
Strong they stand
Strong they stand

Yeah – stand together
Yeah – stand together

Come all reach out for your brother
Take him by the hand
All we have is one another
Strong we stand
Strong we stand
Strong we stand
Strong we stand

Strong we stand
