Name the Songs from the Lyrics Meme

Killing time while waiting for some programs to update on my computer so I can get to dissertation writing for the day. Decided to steal this meme from qwentoozla. I've done it before but I don't remember if any of the songs are repeats. I went with the first couple lines from each song no matter what, even though there's at least 3 where the song name is in the first lines.

Step 1: Put your iPod on shuffle.
Step 2: Post a line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist (or show :P) the lines come from.
Step 4: Don't check the comments first if you don't want to be be spoiled!
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1. Yeah, I've had my share of broken dreams
And more than a couple of falls

2. Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit, he'd come along

3. Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been

4. Can't you hear that rooster crowing ?
Rabbit running down across the road

5. Go 'way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed

Bob Dylan - It Ain't Me Babe - guessed by unsentimentalf

6. The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police station

Paul Simon - Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard - guessed by qwentoozla

7. I ain't got time to think about money
And what it can buy

8. This world don't give you nothing it can't take away
Everybody holding on to something

9. There's a place
I can get to
Where I'm safe
From the city blues

10. Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream

11. "Let us be lovers, we'll marry our fortunes together"
"I've got some real estate here in my bag"

Simon and Garfunkel - America - guessed by unsentimentalf

12. The dirty rain is falling
I hear the wind a calling me away

13. Well, if you think she's everything you could want
And if you think she's everything that could be

14. I've tried but I couldn't find any warning of you, dear
It's hard to make any sense of what I feel here

15. I can go one day without calling
Two days without bawling

16. Believin' in you is believin' in me
All the same circle game that makes us feel free

17. What you want
Baby, I got it

18. Where are we going love?
What are you feelin'?

19. Girl, well it's been one of those days again,
And it seems like the harder I try,
Over and over, I'm right back where I began;

20. Thumbing across Georgia I ran into Gloria
She seemed like a mystic to me

21. I want to know what promises to keep
I wanna know how guilty people sleep

22. Early in the evenin',
Just about suppertime,
Over by the courthouse,
They're starting to unwind.

23. Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's busy
Too busy to come to the phone

24. Fill my head with the future
Fill my eyes with the sky

25. My baby she may not a-look
Like one of those bunnies out of a Playboy Club

26. When I think of all the worries
That people seem to find

27. I've been working on my rewrite
That's right

28. You've been goin' around talking
Sayin' he's young enough to be my son, uh huh

29. I can dim the lights
And sing you songs full of sad things

30. One more night in Omaha
Bus stop just before the dawn


Wine gums, envy, pieces of rainbow

6 is Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard by Paul Simon, isn't it? None of the others are ringing a bell!

You are correct on #6. There's some others that you probably know the songs, but I at least find it really hard to figure these things out from just a few random words.

5, 11 and 23, because I'm old!

5. Bob Dylan, It Ain't Me Babe
11. Simon and Garfunkel, America
15 I can't remember the artist but I know the song!

10 and 29 I feel I ought to know.

5 and 11, yep!

You said you also know 23 but I don't see where you said what it is.

15, if you know the name of the song even without the artist, that's cool.

10 and 29 are definitely reasonably popular songs so I wouldn't be surprised if you know them. Bit of help, maybe....
10 is from the 1980s, unusually for me. Female singer.
29 is 1970s. Male front man of a rock band singing.

I'm so bad at these things, But I did recognize some Aretha :D
2. Son of a preacher man
17. Respect
