Song Lyrics Game

We have a famous movie lines game & I watch very few movies so I can't play. How about a Song Lyrics game? Name the song & artist of the lyrics I post & you're it. You provide the next challenge!

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I'm down on my luck

Warren Zevon, Lawyers, Guns and Money
Written By Warren Zevon
c. 1978 Zevon Music/BMI

I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the
Russians, too?

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
They'll get me out of this, hyeah

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock
and a hard place
And I'm down on my luck
Yes I'm down on my luck
Well I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The **** has hit the fan

All right
Send lawyers, guns and money
Huh!
Uh...
Send lawyers, guns and money
Uhh!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Hyah!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Ooh!
Yeah!
Yeah
Yeah...
Uh!

Here's an easier one:

I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream.
Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt ...

Here's one that everybody knows the first verse to and sort of ties in to the Holiday:

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
l can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Only You is the song I planned on dedicating to Paul at my 55th Class Reunion next year...My DIL bought the CD and it was played at his service 11 days ago.

I'm clueless with this one. Doesn't anyone know it so we can go on with the game?

I'm sorry, the song is The Battle Hymn of the Republic. I really like this game and regret posting a hard one by mistake. The whole lyrics, and a free and legally downloadable mp3 file by Roger McGuinn, who founded The Byrds in the 60's, is here. Please somebody carry this on and I'll just enjoy lurking.

No! I don't want you to lurk!!! I just didn't know it but I was sure someone else did! I don't want to Google the lyrics - I just want to guess off the top of my head if I think I know it. That one, I didn't!
