Maadi (Road 83) - [Soundscape]

By: Martin Gilmore (Timtomtodd Music, ASCAP)

Hadji Ali

By: Martin Gilmore (Timtomtodd Music, ASCAP)

Me I am a Camel Man, I'm a Syrian, an Ottoman
Came across to the Rio Grande Under orders from Buchanan
He said "Geronimo our Apache Foe, rides the range to Mexico
Further than our horses go, and we think you can change the show"

   CHORUS

 

   So call me Hi Jolly Hadji Ali
  Man of War in the Camel Corps Riding the Mohave
  Hey ho Geronimo What do you think of me?
  Just Call me Hi Jolly, Hadji Ali

Fort Mojave to Camp Verde, El Paso to Albuquerque
We packed up our Dromedaries and showed the west our "camelry"
With bales of mail we hit the trail going where the mules failed
After years of that Travail We just couldn't make the sale

   CHORUS

So We told our camels to vamoose when the army decided to reduce
left Geronimo to his old papoose he and me we called a truce
now out there all around the west you'll find my camels dispossessed
even though I tried my best, I guess you know the rest

Pride of Man

Hamilton Camp (M. Witmark & Sons, ASCAP)

Turn around go back down
Back the way you came
Can't you see that flash of fire
Ten times brighter than the day
And behold the mighty city
Broken in the dust again
Oh God, the pride of man
Broken in the dust again

Turn around go back down
Back the way you came
Babylon is laid to waste
Egypt's buried in her shame
Their mighty men are all beaten down
Their kings have fallen by the way
Oh God, the pride of man
Broken in the dust again

Turn around go back down
Back the way you came
Terror is on every side
Though our leaders are dismayed
But those who place their faith in fire
In fire their faith will be repaid
Oh God, pride of man
Broken in the dust again

Turn around go back down
Back the way you came
shout a warning to the nations
That the sword of God is raised
On Babylon that mighty city
Rich in treasure wide in fame
Oh God, the pride of man
Broken in the dust again

Mokkatum
