The Ninth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge

Answers to The Eighth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge are now in the comments on that post. We had a three-way tie for winners this time around, Old Man, Ali and OestreBunny all correctly identifying one song apiece (actually, OestreBunny spotted two, but one was already picked out by Ali).

Here are this week's mystery tunes. Answers in the comments, no Googling.

1: Bring you a tale from the pastel fields where we ran when we were young.

2: Honey you are a rock upon which I stand, And I come here to talk, I hope you understand.

3: Train I ride, sixteen coaches long.

4: Here comes that panic attack, my heart stops... and then it starts.

5: If you smile then that should set the tone, just be limber.

I'm sure No.3 is an Elvis song - Mystery Train if I'm not mistaken.

Ah-huh-huh...

I was surprised how easy it was to pull those up on Google. The fourth one had some depression links before the lyrics.

Just my idle thoughts. I am hopeless at these kinds of things.

Not this week, sorry. I'll try again...

Mystery Train was indeed sung by Elvis, but it is a Little Junior Parker song.
