Pardon me, if I’m sentimental Then I must believe wishes come true
When we say goodbye I just look at you and I touch your hand
Don't be angry with me should I cry And this ordinary world becomes a wonderland A Dog's Life I see diamonds, sables, sapphires and pearls
When you're gone, yet I’ll dream And as the picture clears
A little dream as years go by Poor little rich girl sitting all alone
Now and then there's a fool such as I There are many girls I have met before If I had my life to live over Counting her treasures in tears
But I pass them by because I knew I know just what I'd like to be Better just a shack where two people care
There would be this magic moment, A pampered pet of a rich brunette Than a house that has everything, everything but
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you One to last a lifetime through Sitting on my mama's knee love

You taught me how to love Cowboy, cowboy marry me If I had a bone to be picking A hundred years from now I won't be blue
And now you say that we are through I'll bake you a cherry pie A picking chicken or a steak My heart will have to forget that we ever met
I'm a fool, but I’ll love you dear Well thank you very kindly mam Curled up there in an easy chair But I won't care a hundred years from now
Until the day I die But I'm too young to die Man, that won't be hard to take
Now and then there's a fool such as I I'll always be faithful
Now and then there's a fool such as I That's what I'd be I'll never forget sweetheart the night you told me
Now and then there's a fool such as I Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do Never bite a hand that feeds me, no siree That you could Live without my love somehow
Stay single and save a dollar Just lead a dog's life That's all in the past I knew it wouldn't last
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl What a life But I won't care a hundred years from now
A Big Hunk o' Love With a cane and a high starched collar That's good enough for me
That's good enough for me A Little Bit of Green
Hey baby, I ain't askin' much of you Cowboy if you'll marry me
No no no no no no no no baby, I ain't askin' much I'll be your darling Jenny I'd find me a pink little poodle
of you Now that the truth is hard to face
Now why should I drink from just one well And lose my noodle over her I can't forget you once were mine
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do When I can drink from twen'y I chase her 'round all over town Someone else is in my place
Just to ruffle up her fur Whenever we meet my heart beats out of time
Don't be a stingy little mama Nuzzle her muzzle
Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do A hole in her paw
You're 'bout to starve me half to death Stay single and save a dollar
Well you can spare a kiss or two and Greatest case of puppy lovin' you ever saw Just a little bit of green
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl It's called a dog's life Clouds my eyes to what I've seen
Still have plenty left, no no no With a cane and a high starched collar
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you What a life Just a little bit of green
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do That's good enough for me When I see you with someone new
Cowboy, cowboy name the day You heard me say it now And knowing that there's nothing I can do
July 'd be nice I reckon That's good enough for me
You're just a natural born beehive Gladly meet you at the church That's good enough for me
Filled with honey to the top Please don't try to tie me down
July the 32nd Those are the words you often say
Well I ain't greedy baby
All I want is all you got, no no no A House That Has Everything I can't help seeing you around

Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do Stay single and save a dollar I can see you now living like a queen
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl In a house that has everything, everything but love Just a little bit of green
With a cane and a high starched collar Crystal chandeliers, chauffeured limousines Oh-oh-ho, clouds my eyes to what I've seen
I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist Yes you'll really have everything, everything but Just a little bit of green
You know I'd have all the things these lucky You sleep all day and spoon all night love When I see you with someone new
charms could bring And eat your favorite chow And knowing that there's nothing I can do
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, no no no no Then why should I get married mam I see diamonds, sables, sapphires and pearls
no no no That's what I'm doing now And as the picture clears Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you Poor little rich girl sitting all alone
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

Just a little bit of green Sittin' here all alone It can lift you up, it can put you down When we're in...a world of our own...
Oh-oh-ho, clouds my eyes to what I've seen Since you're gone Take your world and turn it all around
Just a little bit of green I got a mess of blues Ever since time nothing's ever been found stronger
When I see you with someone new than love Adam and Evil
And knowing that there's nothing I can do Men like me they worry and doubt
I ain't slept a wink since Sunday Trouble their minds day in and day out
I can't eat a thing all day Now Adam and Evil, they go hand in hand
Too busy a livin' to worry about a thing called love Eve taught him sin, that's the way it all began
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Every day is just blue Monday
Just a little bit of green Since you've been away But every time you kiss me, my heart pounds like a
Since you're gone And then I see a mother's tenderness drum
I got a mess of blues As she holds her young close to her breast So trouble is a woman, trouble here I come
A Little Less Conversation Then I say thank God this world will win with the
thing called love I'm lonely like Adam, you're evil like Eve
Whoops there goes a teardrop
A little less conversation, a little more action please Rollin' down my face I shouldn't take forbidden fruit 'cause I believe
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me If you cry when you're in love A Whistling Tune I'll be heading straight for heartache
A little more bite and a little less bark It sure ain't no disgrace I should cut loose and run
A little less fight and a little more spark But if loving you means heartache
Close your mouth and open up your heart and Did you ever notice when the sun goes down Heartache, here I come
baby satisfy me I gotta get myself together Out of nowhere comes a strange and pretty sound
Satisfy me baby Before I lose my mind It's a whistling tune for walking in the night
I'm gonna catch the next train goin' If you listen you can hear it in the breeze You're not the angel that I dreamed about
And leave my blues behind Specially when the breeze is drifting through the But you're the devil I don't want to live without
Baby close your eyes and listen to the music Since you're gone trees A woman's a woman, a man is a man
Drifting through a summer breeze I got a mess of blues I can't be free I'm just putty in your hands
It's a groovy night and I can show you how to use Who cares about tomorrow, I need your love
it It's a whistling tune for walking in the night tonight
Come along with me and put your mind at ease Whoops there goes a teardrop And the murmuring waters sing the song
Rollin' down my face The echoing mountains hum along
If you cry when you're in love The whispering valleys fill the air And even if you're evil, baby hold me tight
A little less conversation, a little more action please It sure ain't no disgrace With a whistling tune our hearts can share
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark You're not the angel that I dreamed about
I gotta get myself together But you're the devil I don't want to live without
A little less fight and a little more spark Before I lose my mind It's so wonderful to walk beneath the moon
Close your mouth and open up your heart and Listening to old mother nature's favorite tune A woman's a woman, a man is a man
I'm gonna catch the next train goin' I can't be free I'm just putty in your hands
baby satisfy me And leave my blues behind It's a whistling tune for walking in the night
Satisfy me baby Who cares about tomorrow, I need your love
Since you're gone tonight
I got a mess of blues A World of Our Own
Come on baby I'm tired of talking
Grab your coat and let's start walking And baby if you're evil, baby hold me tight
Since you're gone I got a mess of blues You kiss me darling, a miracle starts Hold me tight
Come on, come on Since you're gone I got a mess of blues
Come on, come on A magic feeling, comes into our hearts Hold me tight
Come on, come on The spell of love began, when we're alone Hold me tight
Don't procrastinate, don't articulate A Thing Called Love And we're in, a world of our own
Girl it's getting late, gettin' upset waitin' around After Loving You
Six foot six stood on the ground, weighted 235 You say you want me, and music I hear
A little less conversation, a little more action please pounds Touch me my darling, and clouds disappear
The sky is bright above, and cares have flown But now after loving you, what else is there to do
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me But I saw that giant of a man brought down to his For honey, all the rest is just gonna have to be
A little more bite and a little less bark knees by love And we're in, a world of our own
second best
A little less fight and a little more spark He was the kind of man who would gamble on love I know I'll go through life comparing her to you
Close your mouth and open up your heart and Look you in the eye and never back up Holding you close, is heaven That's 'cause I'm no good, I'm no good to anyone
baby satisfy me But I saw him crying like a little whipped pup Only I know, what it's worth after loving you
Satisfy me baby because of love Knowing you're mine, forever
Is the greatest wonder on earth
Your precious love cannot be erased by just
A Mess of Blues Can't see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands another woman with a pretty face
Like the rules that govern our land Nothing can change it, the magic's begun And your memory, you know it will remain for it
Strong enough to rule the heart of every man, this When we're together, our hearts become one cannot be erased
I just got your letter baby thing called love
Too bad you can't come home I find a happiness, I've never known Other loves may come along, they can't live up to
I swear I’m goin' crazy When we're in, a world of our own you

That's 'cause I'm no good, I'm no good to anyone All I Needed Was the Rain There's only one cure for this body of mine We almost touched the stars
after loving you That's to have the girl that I love so fine! And there stood heaven, almost ours
We were just outsiders looking in.
Hello misfortune, how's my old friend "Mr. Misery"?
Your precious love cannot be erased by just I've been away so long I bet you think you saw the All That I Am
another woman with a pretty face last of me We had the chance to fall
And your memory, you know it will remain for it Got no bed, to rest my head But fate stepped in to end it all
cannot be erased No doors or walls or window pane All that I am or ever hope to be Before it could begin.
Other loves may come along, they can't live up to Now all I needed was the rain Lies in your hands
you rain, rain, rain, rain You are my destiny
That's 'cause I'm no good, I'm no good to anyone When you are in my arms, I rule the world And if it's true, you're really going
after loving you And when we're far apart, how cruel the world There's nothing but goodbye to say
Met a little honey at the "Buzzin' Bumble Bee Cafe" The saddest part of all is knowing
Yes I did We almost went all the way
I said I'm no good, I'm no good to anyone after One drink and all my money and that honey bee All that I want is to be near to you
loving you had flown away To spend my life making it clear to you
I said I'm no good, I'm no good, I'm no good to I'm 'bout as low, as I can go You are my heart, my soul, my dream come true Almost Always True
anyone I don't really mean to complain All that I am, I am because of you
To anyone, to anyone, to anyone after loving you Now all I needed was the rain I was always, baby, I was always
That's 'cause I'm no good, I'm no good to anyone rain, rain...rain..rain All that I want is to be near to you Well almost always true to you
after loving you To spend my life making it clear to you Met a pretty mademoiselle
All I needed was this rain... You are my heart, my soul, my dream come true Her papa owned a small hotel
Ain't That Loving You Baby All I needed was the rain...um All that I am, I am because of you Oh, I was almost always true to you

I could ride around the world in an old oxcart All Shook Up Because of you I resisted tho' my arm was twisted
And never let another girl thrill my heart Because of you I was almost always true to you
Stayed away from drinkin' wine
A well I bless my soul Thought about you all the time
Ain't that loving you baby? What's wrong with me? Allá En El "Rancho Grande" Oh, I was almost always true to you
Ain't that loving you baby? I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
Ain't that loving you baby? My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug Allá en el rancho grande
Ain't that loving you so? I'm in love Kept refusin' don't jump to conclusions
Allá donde vívía I was almost always true to you
I'm all shook up Habi'a una rancherita
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah! I would never grab like this
I could meet a hundred girls and have loads of fun Que alegre me decía I would never steal a kiss
My huggin' and my kissin' belong to just one Que alegre me decía: Oh, I was almost always true to you
My hands are shaky and my knees are weak "Te voy hacer unos calzones
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet comos los que usa el ranchero
Ain't that loving you baby? Who do you thank when you have such luck? Los comenzo de lana Almost in Love
Ain't that loving you baby? I'm in love y los acabo de hierro."
Ain't that loving you baby? I'm all shook up
Ain't that loving you so? Your lips were made for kisses so tender
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah! There in the great ranch I'm almost in love tonight
There where she used to live When we are close, my heart says surrender
If you gave me nine lives like a tommy cat Please don't ask me what's on my mind There used to be a cowgirl I'm almost in love tonight
I'd give 'em all to you and never take one back I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine Who joyfully used to tell me
When I'm near that girl that I love best Who joyfully used to tell me
"I'm going to make some trousers And here under the spell of evening
Ain't that loving you baby? My heart beats so it scares me to death! I long to hold you tight
like those which the cowboy wears
Ain't that loving you baby? I'm starting them with wool Heaven is near, why think of tomorrow
Ain't that loving you baby? She touched my hand what a chill I got and I'm finishing them with iron." I'm almost in love tonight
Ain't that loving you so? Her lips are like a vulcano that's hot
I'm proud to say she's my buttercup It may be just the spell of evening
I'm in love Almost
I'm putting on my Sunday suit and I’m goin' I long to hold you tight
downtown I'm all shook up Heaven is near, why think of tomorrow
But I’ll be kissin' your lips before the sun goes Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah! We almost shared a dream I'm almost in love tonight
down We almost made it as a team
My tongue get tied when I try to speak How nice it would have been.
Almost in love
Ain't that loving you baby? My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
Ain't that loving you so?

One love, one girl,one dream shared by two And crowned thy good, with brotherhood How I've lived till now
Am I ready, to fall in love with you From sea...to shining sea... I tell them I don't know

Aloha Oe
I have touched your lips,and now I know America!..America!! I guess they understand
I would be a fool, to let you go God shed his grace on thee How lonely life has been
Aloha-oe, aloha-oe, ikeona ona noho ikanipo And crown thy good with brotherhood But life began again
One fond embrace ahoea ea From sea...to..shining..sea!! The day you took my hand
Until we meet again Should I, could I, how I wish I knew
Until we meet again Am I ready, to fall in love with you
AMERICA!!!.... And yes I know how lonely life can be
Shadows follow me
Always on My Mind Should I, could I, how I wish I knew The night won't set me free
Am I ready, to fall in love with you An American Trilogy But I don't let the evening get me down
Maybe I didn't treat you Now that you're around me
Quite as good as I should have Fall in love...with..you... Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
Maybe I didn't love you Old things they are not forgotten And you love me too
Quite as often as I could have Look away, look away, look away Dixieland Your thoughts are just for me
Little things I should have said and done Amazing Grace Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away You set my spirit free
I just never took the time In Dixieland I take my stand to live and die in Dixie I'm happy that you do
Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound Cause Dixieland, that's where I was born
That saved a wreck like me Early Lord one frosty morning
You were always on my mind Look away, look away, look away Dixieland The book of life is brief
You were always on my mind I once was lost, though now I'm found
I was blind, but now I see Once the page is read
When we've been there ten thousand years All but love is dead
Glory, glory hallelujah This is my believe
Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Bright shining as the sun Glory, glory hallelujah
Give me, give me one more chance We've no less days to sing God's praise Glory, glory hallelujah
To keep you satisfied, satisfied Then when, when we first begun His truth is marching on And the Grass Won't Pay No Mind
Too many ages false and spent
I have already hung
Maybe I didn't hold you This face and flock He saved us by So hush little baby Listen easy, you can hear God calling
All those lonely, lonely times His endless grace will leave me whole Don't you cry Walking barefoot by the stream
And I guess I never told you Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound You know your daddy's bound to die Come on to me, Your hair's softly falling
I'm so happy that you're mine To save a wreck like me But all my trials, Lord will soon be over On my face as in a dream
If I make you feel second best And the time will be our time
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind And the grass won't pay no mind
I once was lost, but now I'm found An Evening Prayer
I was blind, but now I see
You were always on my mind Saying nothing, lying where the sun is
You were always on my mind If I have wounded any soul today Baking down upon our sides
America the Beautiful If I have caused one foot to go My lips touch you, with their soft wet kisses
If I have lost in my own misery Your hands gentle in reply
Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Dear Lord forgive
Give me, give me one more chance O beautiful for spacious skies And the time will be our time
To keep you satisfied, satisfied For amber waves of grain And the grass won't pay no mind
For purple mountain majesties Forgive a sin I have confessed to Thee
Above thy fruited plain Forgive my secret sins I do Child, touch my soul with your cries
Little things I should have said and done Oh God watch over me and my misery
I just never took the time And the music will know what we've found
Dear Lord, help me I, hear a hundred good-byes
You were always on my mind America, America
You are always on my mind God shed His grace on thee But today I hear only one sound
You are always on my mind And crown thy good with brotherhood The moment we're living is now
From sea to shining sea Now now now now now now now

Am I Ready
For beautiful..for spacious skies Young bird flying, and a soft wind blowing
For amber waves of grain Cools the sweat inside my palms
Am I ready, can my heart be true? For purple mountain..majesties And I Love You So Close my eyes, hear the flowers growing
Am I ready, to fall in love with you Above the fruited plain... As you lay sleeping in my arms
America!...America!... And the time will be our time
And I love you so, And the grass won't pay no mind
God shed His grace..on thee.. The people ask me how, No the grass won't pay no mind

Angel You better not be caught off guard Anyone could lose his heart like me Anything That's Part Of You
This wolf is on the search now Anyone who has eyes that can see
A leopard just can't change it's spots Anyone could fall in love like me
Angel, with those angel eyes And I'm about to lurch now And I love you my darling I memorize the note you sent
Come and take this earth boy I roar like the jungle, I fight tooth and nail Go all the places that we went
Up to paradise I just gotta get you, you'll fall without fail I seem to search the whole day through
I'm ready for the kill, I'm right on the brink You're the star I reached for For anything that's part of you
It's animal instinct You're a dream so rare
Angel, may I hold you tight? You're my greatest treasure
Never kissed an angel It's animal instinct, animal instinct I kept a ribbon from your hair
Nothing can compare
Let me kiss one tonight A breath of perfume lingers there
Any Day Now It helps to cheer me when I’m blue
Anyone could want you for his own Anything that's part of you
If I said "I love you" Anyone not only mine alone
Would I be speaking out of turn? Any day now I will hear you say Anyone could fall in love with you
I'm only human, but I'm willing to learn Goodbye my love And I love you my darling Oh, how it hurts to miss you so
You'll be on your way Anyone could fall in love with you When I know you don't love me anymore
Then my wild beautiful bird And I love you my darling To go on needing you
Angel, make my wish come true Knowing you don't need me
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you You will have flown
Any day now I’ll be all alone
Oh, oh, oh Anyplace Is Paradise
No reason left for me to live
Angel, never kissed an angel What can I take, what can I give
Let me kiss one tonight Whether you're riding down a highway When I’d give all of someone new
Any day now, when your restless eyes
Meet someone new Or walkin' down a street For anything that's part of you
If I said "I love you" To my sad surprise It makes no difference baby
Would I be speaking out of turn? Then the blue shadow will fall all over town I'm gonna love you just as mean
'Cause holdin' your little hand Anyway You Want Me
I'm only human, but I'm willing to learn Any day now
Love will let me down Makes me feel so very nice
Oh, oh, oh Anyplace is paradise I'll be a strong as a mountain,
Angel, make my wish come true When I’m with you Or weak as a willow tree,
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you Anyway you want me,
I know I shouldn't want to keep you That's how I will be.
If you don't want to stay, yeah Whether we're standin' on a doorstep
Angel, Angel Until you've gone forever Or sittin' at a park
I'll be holding on for dear life Or strollin' down shady lane I'll be a tame as a baby,
Holding you this way Or dancin' in the dark Or wild as the raging sea,
Animal Instinct Well I can take you in my arms
Begging you to stay Anyway you want me,
And look into your pretty eyes That's how I will be.
Don't ever take tour eyes off me Anyplace is paradise
Not even for a minute Any day now When I’m with you
'cause like a panther I might pounce When the clock strikes go In your hand my heart is clay,
And that will be the limit You'll call it off To take a mold as you may.
Then my tears will flow Give me a cave up in the mountain I'm what you make me, you've only to take me,
Then the blue shadow will fall all over town Or a shack down by the sea And in your arms I will stay.
I can be sneaky, fast as a snake Any day now And I will be in heaven honey
I strike like a cobra, make no mistake Love will let me down If you are there with me
And baby you'll be trapped, quick as a wink Oh, oh, oh Well kiss your pretty lips I'll be a fool or a wise man,
It's animal instinct See the love-light in your eyes My darling you hold the key,
Anyplace is paradise Yes, anyway you want me,
Oh, any day now When I’m with you That's how I will be,
Don't think that I won't pin you down Oh, oh, oh I will be.
No matter how you plead it Oh, any day now
I'm like a lion who's been caged Don't fly away my beautiful bird Baby I’d live deep in the jungle
And you are gonna meet it And sleep up in a tree Are You Lonesome Tonight?
And let the rest of the world go be
Anyone (Could Fall in Love With You) If you were there with me
Watch out I'll warn ya', sharp as a hawk Well I could love you all the time Are you lonesome tonight,
I'm wild as a tiger, I prowl and I stalk Baby, a jungle would be fine do you miss me tonight?
'cause when a man feels thirst, he takes a drink Anyone could fall in love with you Anyplace is paradise Are you sorry we drifted apart?
It's animal instinct Anyone who knows you as I do When I’m with you Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
Anyone could fall in love with you When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
And I love you my darling Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?

Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain Blueberry Hill
Without a love of my own.
Blue River
In the twilight glow I see her Blue moon, I found my thrill on blueberry hill
Blue eyes crying in the rain You knew just what I was there for. On blueberry hill when I found you
When we kissed goodbye and parted You heard me saying a pray for Blue river, it can't be found on any map that I The moon stood still on blueberry hill
I knew we'd never meet again Someone I really could care for. know And lingered until my dreams came true
But it's the place where lonely lovers all go
Blue moon, To cry their tears, blue river
Love is like a dying ember You saw me standing alone, It winds along a path of heartache and pain The wind in the willow played
Only memories remain Without a dream in my heart, Of broken dreams from lovin' someone in vain Love's sweet melody
Through the ages I remember Without a love of my own. Like I loved you, and baby I still do But all of those vows we made
Blue eyes crying in the rain Were never to be
Blue moon...
Without a love of my own. I held you so tight
Someday when we meet up yonder You were out of my sight Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
We'll stroll hand in hand again I'm feelin' so low For you were my thrill on blueberry hill
In a land that knows no parting Blue Moon of Kentucky But I gotta go
Blue eyes crying in the rain Blue river because you never really cared about Bosom of Abraham

Blue moon, blue moon, blue moon, From now on baby that's where I'm gonna be
keep shining bright. Cryin' over you, by the river of blue Well you rock my soul
Blue moon, keep on shining bright, Down in the bosom of Abraham

Bridge Over Troubled Water A look of sweet surrender, a touch of too much Help me, I'm flaming away
sadness I must be a hundred and nine And our hearts are made to bleed
When you're weary, feeling small 'Cause I've hurt you so, you know your sorrow Burning, burning, burning For some thoughtless word or deed
When tears are in your eyes I will dry them all shows And nothing can cool me And we wonder why the test when we try to do
I'm on your site, oh, When times get rough You just can't stay, but you can't let go I just might turn into smoke our best
And friends just can't be found But I feel fine But we'll understand it better by and by

I am yours and you are mine, come what may There's no job too immense when you've got Could I fall in love for the very first time I can explain about last night
Love like ours remains divine, come what may Confidence That's what I ask myself when you're lips touch Though things didn't look just right
Even though we're miles apart mine Please believe me there was nothing wrong
You're living in my lonely heart Could I fall in love on a night like tonight I thought about you baby all night long
At night the teardrops start and pour the long long You'll be surprised what you can do That's what I'd like to know when I hold you tight Cross my heart, I hope to die
day If you will only try Well I wouldn't tell you no lie, mmm

Now that we're alone (Now that we're alone)


I keep your picture near me since you went away How do you know that you can't ride a rainbow in Just a kiss apart (Just a kiss apart) Talk about a piece of rotten luck
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day the sky I have the answer from the feeling in my heart You do a friend a favor and you wind up stuck
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true Could I fall in love and forever be true She couldn't hold a candle to you, no siree
And I'll be here with you come what may You'll be surprised what you can do My heart tells me I could if I fell for you Very hard to handle like a Model T
If you will only try Cross my heart, I hope to die
Well I wouldn't tell you no lie
All right! Crawfish
All you need is confidence
A little thing called confidence Please believe me when I say
I keep your picture near me since you went away Crawfish Wild horses couldn't drag me away
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day There's no job too immense when you've got Well I went to the bayou just last night
Confidence From you 'cause I don't have to look too hard
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true There was no moon but the stars were bright To see what I've got in my own back yard
And I'll be here with you come what may Put a big long hook on a big long pole So please forgive me and forget
And I'll be here with you come what may With a "C" and an "O" and an "N" and an "F" And I pulled Mr. Crawfish out of his hole Don't say my alloy's all wet (?)
And I'll be here with you come what may And an "I" and a "D" and an "ENCE" Crawfish I miss those kisses from your honeycomb
Ah um bop a bop a um bop a bop a come what Put 'em all together and what have you got This humble bumble bee just wants to fly back
may home
See I got him, see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes Cross my heart, I hope to die
Confidence Well I wouldn't tell you no lie
Confidence Confi ..... Confi .... Confidence Sweet meat look, fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish

When everyone thought the world was flat I wouldn't tell you no lie
Cotton Candy Land No no no no no no
Columbus said "It's round" Now take Mr. Crawfish in your hand
He went down in history He's gonna look good in your frying pan I wouldn't tell you no lie
And America was found Sandman's comin', yes he's comin' If you fry him crisp or you boil him right
To sprinkle you with sand He'll be sweeter than sugar when you take a bite Crying in the Chapel
He'll say "one, two, three" Crawfish
'Cause And you'll be, In cotton candy land
He had confidence You saw me crying in the chapel.
A little thing called confidence The tears I shed were tears of joy
There's no job too immense when you've got Sandman's comin', yes he's comin' I know the meaning of contentment
Confidence He'll take you, by the hand Now I am happy with the Lord
And you'll ride upon, a big white swan
In cotton candy land
With a "C" and an "O" and an "N" and an "F" Just a plain and simple chapel
And an "I" and a "D" and an "ENCE" Where humble people go to pray
Put 'em all together and what have you got You and the swan will float upon I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger
A cloud of pink ice cream As I live from day to day
Where every star is a candy bar
Confidence And the moon is a marshmallow dream
I've searched and I've searched
You'll be surprised what you can do But I couldn't find
Sandman's comin', yes he's comin' No way on earth
If you will only try Take his magic hand To gain peace of mind
Now goodnight...now sleep tight
Remember the tortoise and the hare In cotton candy land
Who had that famous race Now I'm happy in the chapel
The speedy hare wound up nowhere Where people are of one accord
In cotton candy land... We gather in the chapel
And slow poke took first place
Just to sing and praise the Lord
Could I Fall in Love Cross My Heart and Hope to Die
'Cause
He had confidence Ev'ry sinner looks for something
A little thing called confidence That will put his heart at ease

Now there you go, you're cryin' again Seems I've been lost in a dream Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine He gives me fever with his kisses
You should have known how things would end Pretending that you care We'll understand it all by and by Fever when he holds me tight
But then some day when your poor heart is on the But now I've opened up my eyes Fever, I'm his misses,
mend And found it's all been just a great big fairytale Oh daddy, won't you treat him right'
I just might pass this way again When death has come and taken our loved ones
Leaving our homes so lonely and drear
I've been lovin' you so long Then do we wonder how others prosper Now you've listened to my story
That's what you get for loving me Don't think I'd even know how to forget you Living so wicked year after year Here's the point that I have made
That's what you get for loving me But now the way that things have been Cats were born to give chicks fever
Everything we had is gone, you can see I think I'm better off alone Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
That's what you get for loving me Than to be with you Farther along we'll know more about it They give you fever when you kiss them
Farther along we'll understand why Fever if you live and learn
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine Fever till you sizzle
That's what you get for loving me There's no need to explain anymore We'll understand it all by and by What a lovely way to burn
That's what you get for loving me I tried my best to love you, now I'm walking out What a lovely way to burn
Everything we had is gone, you can see the door What a lovely way to burn
That's what you get for loving me You used me, you deceived me, Fever
And you never seemed to need me
But I'll bet you won't forget me when I go Never know how much I love you Find Out What's Happening
Faded Love
Never know how much I care
Seems like I've been lost in a dream When you put your arms around me Baby you know me well
As I read the letters that you wrote to me Pretending you were mine I get a fever that's so hard to bear You know I mean what I say
Well it's you, it's you that I’m thinking of Someday you'll open up your eyes Before I say farewell
As I read the lines that to me were so sweet And realize that a good man's hard to find I'll give you just another day
I remember our faded love You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fame and Fortune Fever in the morning You'd better find out what's happening
I miss you darlin' more and more everyday Fever all through the night. Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
As heaven would miss the stars above If you don't find out what's happening
With every heartbeat, I still think of you Fame and fortune You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah
And remember our faded love how empty they can be Ev'rybody's got the fever
But when I hold you in my arms that is something you all know
That's heaven to me Fever isn't such a new thing Tell me what you're gonna do
As I think of the past, all the pleasures that we had Who cares for fame and fortune Fever started long ago You'd better make up your mind
As I watch the mating of the doves They're only passing things It all depends on you
It was in the springtime that you said goodbye But the touch of your lips on mine I'm leaving you behind
I remember our faded love Sun lights up the daytime
Makes me feel like a king Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name You'd better find out what's happening
I miss you darlin' more and more everyday Your kind of love And you know I'm gonna treat you right Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
As heaven would miss the stars above is a treasure I hold If you don't find out what's happening
With every heartbeat, I still think of you It's so much greater You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah
And remember our faded love You give me fever when you kiss me
than silver or gold Fever when you hold me tight
I know that I have nothing Fever in the morning
If you should go away Baby you know it's true
Fairytale Fever all through the night We've been through thick and thin
But to know that you love me
Brings fame and fortune my way But if you don't come through
I'll pack up all my things and walk away, Romeo loved Juliet You won't ever see me again
I don't want to hear another word you have to say Juliet she felt the same
I've been waiting for so long Farther Along When he put his arms around her You'd better find out what's happening
I just found out there's something wrong He said 'Julie, baby, you're my flame Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
And there's nothing what get better if I stay (We'll understand it all by and by) Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth If you don't find out what's happening
Tempted and tried we're oft' made to wonder Fever with the flaming youth You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah
Why it should be thus all the day long Fever I'm afire You'd better find, find, better find out
There's no need to explain anymore Fever yea I burn for sooth'
I tried my best to love you, now I'm walking out While there are others living about us Better find out
the door Never molested, though in the wrong Better find, better find out
You used me, you deceived me, Captain Smith and Pocahantas Better find, better find out
And you never seemed to need me Had a very mad affair If you don't find, you're gonna find out that I'm
Farther along we'll know more about it gone
But I'll bet you won't forget me when I go Farther along we'll understand why When her daddy tried to kill him
She said 'Daddy, o, don't you dare

With no regrets I stacked, I stacked the cards, I It's been so long now and it seems that occupation G.I. Blues By the rivers flowing gently on my mind
stacked the cards last night It was only yesterday From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes
And lady luck played her hand just right Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away And if I don't go stateside soon
You made me king of your heart I'm gonna blow my fuse I dip my cup of soup from a gurgling,
cracking cauldron in some train yard
How's your new love, I'm barely runnin' cold how
Oh for just a little while I thought that I might lose I hope that he's doin' fine The frauleins are pretty as flowers Have a dirty hat pulled low across my face
the game Heard you told him, yes baby But we can't make a pass Who cupped hands around the tin cans
Oh but just in time I saw that twinkle in your eyes That you'd love him till the end of time The frauleins are pretty as flowers I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
From a jack to a king of loneliness to a wedding, Well you know, that's the same thing But we can't make a pass That you're wavin' from the back roads
wedding, wedding ring that you told me Cause they're all wearin' signs saying: By the rivers of my memory
I played an ace and I won the queen Well it seems like just the other day "Keepen sie off the grass" Ever smiling never changes on my mind
You made me king of your heart Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away

I've got those hup, two, three, four Gently


For just a little while I thought that I might lose Gotta go now, occupation G.I. Blues
the game guess I’ll see you hanging round From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes
Oh but just in time I saw, I saw that twinkle in Don't know when though, oh And if I don't go stateside soon Gently your eyes met mine
your eyes Never know when I’ll be back in town I'm gonna blow my fuse Tender, trusting, true
From a jack to a king from loneliness to a wedding, But I remember what I told you Gently your hand took mine
wedding, wedding ring That in time your gonna pay Thrilled me through and through
I played an ace and I won the queen Gentle on My Mind
You made me king of your heart Gently, oh so gently
Well ain't it surprisin' how time slips away
Yeah, ain't it surprisin' how time slips away It's knowin' that your door is always open Gentle as the dawn
Fun in Acapulco And you path is free to walk Gently, oh so gently
That makes me tend to keep my sleeping bag Our true love was born
G.I. Blues rolled up
Acapulco, sleeping in the bay And stashed behind your couch
Acapulco, wake up and greet the day Gently your lips kissed mine
Time to tell the guitars and sleepy-eyed stars They give us a room As we strolled along
To be on their way with a view of the beautiful Rhine It's knowin' I'm not shackled Gently your heart touched mine
It's such a beautiful morning, for a holiday They give us a room By forgotten words and bonds Young and warm and strong
with a view of the beautiful Rhine And the heat stains that have dried up on some
Gimme a muddy old creek lovin'
Hey now come on, you old sleepy head in Texas any old time That keeps you in the back roads Gently the hour is near
See the sky turning red, and you're still in bed By the rivers of my memory When true loves have to part
It's fun in Acapulco It keeps you ever gentle on my mind Gently we'll meet again
I've got those hup, two, three, four One more kiss, sweetheart
occupation G.I. Blues
Acapulco, look here comes the sun From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
Acapulco, it's a day for fun And if I don't go stateside soon Planted on their columns mellowed by me Girl Happy
I can't wait till I meet your sweet senoritas I'm gonna blow my fuse Or something that somebody said
Kiss everyone Because they thought we'd fit together walking Girl happy, yes I'm girl happy,
This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun It's just knowing that the world will not be cursin' Girl happy, can't you see
We get hasenpfeffer Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track
and black pumpernickel for chow and find
I can't wait till I meet your sweet senoritas We get hasenpfeffer That you're moving on the back roads Every girl I see looks good to me
Kiss everyone and black pumpernickel for chow By the rivers of my memory and for hours What crazy way I were to be
This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun I'd blow my next month's pay You're just gentle on my mind I love a life of nothing but beautiful women
This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun for a slice of Texas cow Well I'm Girl happy, yes I'm girl happy,
Girl happy, can't you see
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
...this is no time for siesta...this is time for fun We'd like to be heroes, And the junk yards and the highways come
but all we do here is march between us Every time I see a pretty face
We'd like to be heroes, And some other woman's cryin' to her mother My heart just heads for outer space
Funny How Time Slips Away but all we do here is march 'Cause she turned and I was gone I need a girl to make my life worth of living
And they don't give the Purple Heart I still might run in silence Yes, I'm Girl happy, yes I'm girl happy,
Well hello there, for a fallen arch Till' the join might stain my face Girl happy, can't you see
my it's been a long long time And the summer sun might burn me 'till I'm blind
How am I doin', But not to where I cannot see you

So I slept in the hobo jungles, She'd be mine eternally (words & music by H. Williams - J. Kennedy) a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of
Roamed a thousand miles of track, And Marie's the name of his latest flame man.
Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama,
At a club they call Big Jack's, I saw the harbor lights
A little four-piece band was jammin', Hands Off They only told me we were parting I got a woman,
So I took my guitar and I sat in, Those same old harbor lights a head like a rock.
I showed 'em what a band would sound like, That once brought you to me. If she ever went away
Keep your hands off of her I'd cry around the clock.
With a swingin' little guitar man. She don't belong to you
Show 'em, son Oh yeah, ever since the world began
Keep your hands off of her I watched the harbor lights a hard headed woman been
She don't belong to you How could I help it? a thorn in the side of man.
If you ever take a trip down to the ocean, She's mine, o mine, no matter what I do Tears were starting.
Find yourself down around Mobile, She's long, lean and lanky Good-bye to golden nights
Make it on out to a club called Jack's, Tadadadaadaaa Beside the silvery seas. Hard Knocks
If you got a little time to kill, Hands off of her, she don't belong to you
Just follow that crowd of people, She's mine, o mine, no matter what I do
I long to hold you dear, Some kids born with a silver spoon
You'll wind up out on his dance floor, And kiss you just once more. I guess that I was born a little too soon
Diggin' the finest little five-piece group, Happy Ending But you were on the ship,
Up and down the Gulf of Mexico, And I was on the shore.
Guess who's leadin' that five-piece band, Hard knocks, all I ever knew was hard knocks
Well, wouldn't ya know, it's that swingin' little Happy ending, happy ending And I'm telling you, I said you'd better beware
guitar man. Give me a story with a, happy ending Now I know lonely nights 'Cause I've had my share
When boy meets girl and then For all the while my heart keeps praying
They never part again That someday harbor lights
The TV-special verse: But live forever happily, like you and me Will bring you back to me. Some kids born as rich as a king
But I was born without a doggone thing

Well, I came a long way from the carwash, Our love story gets me so upset Hard Headed Woman
Got to where I said I'd get Like Romeo, and Juliet Hard knocks, all I ever knew was hard knocks
Now that I'm here I know for sure I'm not smart enough to figure why And I'm telling you, I said you'd better beware
I really ain't got there yet Some folks enjoy, a real good cry Well a hard headed woman, 'Cause I've had my share
Think I'll start all over a soft hearted man
Swing my guitar over my back been the cause of trouble
I'm gonna get myself back on the track Happy ending, happy ending ever since the world began. I walked a million miles I bet
I'll never, never ever look back Give me a story with a, happy ending Oh yeah, ever since the world began Tired and hungry and cold and wet
I'll never be more than what I am When boy meets girl and then a hard headed woman been I've heard that lonesome whistle blow
Wouldn't you know They never part again a thorn in the side of man. From New York City down to Mexico
I' m a swinging little Guitar man But live forever happily, like you and me Some kids born fancy free
Nobody never gave nothing to me but
Now Adam told to Eve,
(Marie's the Name of) His Latest Flame Never thought that I would stand a chance "Listen here to me,
That you'd give me, a second glance don't you let me catch you Hard knocks, all I ever knew was hard knocks
But I think that you can play the part messin' round that apple tree." And I'm telling you, I said you'd better beware
A very old friend came by today And give a guy, a happy heart Oh yeah, ever since the world began 'Cause I've had my share
'Cause he was telling everyone in town a hard headed woman been
About the love that he just found a thorn in the side of man.
And Marie's the name of his latest flame Happy ending, happy ending I walked a million miles I bet
Give me a story with a, happy ending Tired and hungry and cold and wet
When boy meets girl and then Now Samson told Delilah I've heard that lonesome whistle blow
Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning They never part again loud and clear, From New York City down to Mexico
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye But live forever happily, like you and me "Keep your cotton pickin' fingers Some kids born fancy free
He was gone but still his words kept returning out my curly hair." Nobody never gave nothing to me but
What else was there for me to do but cry Oh yeah, ever since the world began
When boy meets girl and then, they never part a hard headed woman been
again Hard knocks, all I ever knew was hard knocks
He talked and talked and I heard him say a thorn in the side of man. And I'm telling you, I said you'd better beware
but live forever happily, like you and me
That she had the longest blackest hair 'Cause I've had my share
The prettiest green eyes anywhere I heard about a king I said you'd better beware
And Marie's the name of his latest flame Like you and me, like you and me who was doin' swell 'Cause I've had my share
Like you and me till he started playing I said you'd better beware
with that evil Jezebel. 'Cause I've had my share of hard knocks
Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me Harbor Lights Oh yeah, ever since the world began

In a little while you're leavin' You can ask and plea, please, please, please work I thought that I could do things by myself.

I get so lonely I could die. I'm beggin' You, please, Help Me.

Remove the chains of darkness Pulling on the reins. The minute you let her into your heart
and let me see, Lord let me see; Bells are ringing, children singing, I thank the lord for everything Then you can start to make it better
Just where I fit into your master plan. All is merry and bright. And I count my blessings each day
Hang your stockings and say a prayer, He came to me when I needed Him
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. I only have to pray Hey Jude, don't let me down
I never thought I needed help before; And He'll come to you if you ask Him to Take a sad song and make it better
I thought that I could do things by myself. He's only a prayer away The minute you let her into your heart
Now I know I just can't take it any more. Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, Then you can start to make it better
With a humble heart, on bended knee, Riding down Santa Claus Lane.

Help Me Make It Through the Night For boys and girls again. He's your uncle not your dad, he's the best friend To making the world a little better
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, you ever had Don't you know that it's a fool
What a beautiful sight. So come on dig, dig, dig in until it hurts Who plays it cool
Take the ribbon from your hair Jump in bed and cover up your head, Just remember Pearl Harbor In making the world a little better
Shake it loose, let it fall Because Santa Claus comes tonight.
Lay it soft against my skin
Like the shadow on the wall (The Alamos and nothing could be worse) Hey Jude, don't let me down
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, Take a sad song and make it better
Riding down Santa Claus Lane. The minute you let her into your heart
Come and lay down by my side He's your favorite relative and he needs a lot to Then you can start to make it better
Till the early morning light live
All I’m taking is your time He doesn't care if you're a rich or poor boy, So just bring, bring, bring everything until you
Help me make it through the night He loves you just the same. bleed Let it out and let in
Santa knows that we're God's children, Hey Jude begin
That makes everything right. To making the world a little better
I don't care what's right or wrong Fill your hears with Christmas cheer, (And he'll send back what he don't need) Don't you know that it's a fool
I won't try to understand 'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. Who plays it cool
Let the devil take tomorrow To taking the world upon your shoulder
'Cause tonight I need a friend If your not in form ten-forty's your salvation
Well, here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa By deprivation of temptation
Claus, Hey Jude, don't let me down
Yesterday is dead and gone Riding down Santa Claus Lane. Take a sad song and make it better
And tomorrow's out of sight (Dark and blondes I hear are not deductible)
The minute you let her into your heart
And it's sad to be alone Then you can start to make it better
Help me make it through the night He'll come around when the chimes ring out Oh say can you see if there's anything left for me
It's Christmas morn again. When he calls you as he may do
Peace on Earth will come to all Don't be frightened red white and blue Na na na na na.....
I don't care what's right or wrong If we just follow the light
I won't try to understand Just be thankful you don't live in Leningrad
Let's give thanks to the Lord above, He's your uncle, not your dad
Let the devil take tomorrow 'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. Hey Little Girl
'Cause tonight I need a friend
If your honest you don't have to shake and shiver Hey little girl, you sure are cute to me
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. The food is lousy up the river
Yesterday is dead and gone Come up a little closer, so I can see
And tomorrow's out of sight Hold it baby now stay right where you are
And it's sad to be alone I Asked the Lord (He's Only a Prayer Away) (It's give and take and he does all the taking) Hey little girl you oughta be a movie star
Help me make it through the night

I thank the Lord for everything Oh say can you see if there's anything left for me All right...
I don't want to be alone When things are going my way Life has two things you can't subtract
Help me make it through the night He said to me I will comfort thee
And drive your cares away Hey little girl, come on and dance with me

Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Hey little girl, I'd like to take you home
Claus Lane) He promised me I will walk thee Come on, come on, come on I want you for my
And drive your cares away So just pa-pa-patriotically declare very own

Hound Dog You thought that she was yours How the web was woven Come on and buzz a little, buzz a little
Think it over once, think it over twice In my soul, don't you know Sing a little, sing a little
I wish I could take my own advice How the web was woven Buzz a little, sing a little bit with me
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog I know I should be glad, why does it hurt so bad Can't get loose, can't let go
cryin' all the time. How can you lose what you never had Like the weave of a spider
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog Wound around my heart Buzz, buzz, buzz a little
cryin' all the time. I'm no longer free Do re mi a little
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit You don't have the right to cry At last I'm where you want me Buzz a little, sing a little bit with me
and you ain't no friend of mine. You believed your own lie Don't you know, that's where I want to be?
It's your fault because
You thought that she was yours Oh-ho ah-ha, tra la la la la la la
When they said you was high classed, Think it over once, think it over twice Spinning 'round like a blue fly Oh-ho, a-ha ,a-tra la la la la la la
well, that was just a lie. I wish I could take my own advice Thoughts of you fill my head
When they said you was high classed, I know I should be glad, why does it hurt so bad And no matter, oh how I try
well, that was just a lie. How would you like to be?
How can you lose what you never had I can't sleep in my bed A little baby bear
You ain't never caught a rabbit How can you lose what you never had
and you ain't no friend of mine. And you can hug me tight
I've been round for the last time Any time you care
How Do You Think I Feel Oh, girl, what can I do?
House of Sand Oh the time the web was woven, How would you like to be?
How I fell in love, fell in love with you A little dancing doll
How do you think I feel?
Oh you can take a whole lot of sand I know your love's not real And you could dance with me
And build a castle on the beach The girl I’m mad about is just a gadabout How Would You Like to Be? Everytime I call
And though you mold it and you plan How do you think I feel?
Still you got nothing in your reach
How would you like to be? Oh-ho, tra la la la la la la
How do you think we stand? A little circus clown
One little slip and it tumbles down I know you've made your plan And you could wear a smile
One wrong step and it crumbles all around oh-ho...ah-ah...tra la la la..la.la..la
But you've included free Instead of a frown
Like a house without love, that's sure to fall apart And that's too much for me
A house of sand is an empty work of art How do you think I feel? How's the World Treating You?
How would you like to be?
A little kangaroo
You can build a tower of clay I won't be true again A-hoppin' up and down I've had nothing but sorrow
But if you ask my advice I know that I can't win And I could hop with you Since you said we were through
Well it is worthless as I say So why should I pretend There's no hope for tomorrow
I got no heart it's cold as ice That you still love me? How's the world treating you?
Come on and smile a little, smile a little Every sweet thing that mattered
hop a little, hop a little, Has been broken in two
One little slip and it tumbles down How Great Thou Art Smile a little, hop a little bit with me
One wrong step and it crumbles all around All my dreams have been shattered
Like a house without love, that's sure to fall apart How's the world treating you?
A house of sand is an empty work of art Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder Come on and smile a little, smile a little
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made hop a little, hop a little, Got no plans for next Sunday
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Smile a little, hop a little bit with me Got no plans for today
One little slip and it tumbles down Thy power throughout the universe displayed
One wrong step and it crumbles all around Every day is blue Monday
When Christ shall come Every day you're away
Like a house without love, that's sure to fall apart With shout of acclamation Oh ho, ha ha, a-tra la la la la la la
A house of sand is an empty work of art To take me home a ha, tra la la la la la la
A house of sand is an empty work of art What joy shall fill my heart Every sweet thing that mattered
A house of sand is an empty work of art Then I shall bow in humble adoration How's the world treating you?
How would you like to be?
And there proclaim my God how great thou art A little buzzing bee And I’m asking you darling
How Can You Lose What You Never Had Then sings my soul my savior God to thee And instead of a tree How's the world treating you?
How great thou art You could buzz around me
How great thou art
How can you lose what you never had Then sings my soul my savior God to thee Hurt
I tell myself when I'm feeling sad How great thou art how great thou art How would you like to be?
A little mocking bird I'm so hurt to think that you lied to me
And you can sing me songs I'm hurt way down deep inside of me
You don't have the right to cry How the Web Was Woven Like I never heard
You believed your own lie You said our love was true
It's your fault because And we'll never, never part

33
Now you've got someone new I believe for every drop of rain that falls It would sure do me good to do you good, Those happy hours
And it breaks my heart A flower grows Let me help That we once knew
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night Though long ago,
A candle glows They still make me blue
I'm hurt, much more than you'll ever know I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone It's a fact that people get lonely, ain't nothing new
Yes darling, I'm so hurt will come But a woman like you baby, should never have the
Because I still love you so To show the way blues They say that time
Even though you hurt me I believe, I believe Let me help, I've got two for me, let me help Heals a broken heart
Like nobody else could ever do It would sure do me good to do you good But time has stood still
I would never hurt, hurt you Let me help Since we've been apart
I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard
I Beg of You I believe that someone in the great somewhere When I go to sleep at night, you're always a part I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine
Hears every word of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I want
I don't want my heart to be broken to hear Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine.
Cause it's the only one I've got Everytime I hear a new born baby cry, Don't forget me baby, all you gotta do is call I get my lovin' in the evening time
So darling please be careful Or touch a leaf or see the sky You know how I feel about you, if I can do When I'm with my baby.
You know I care a lot Then I know why, I believe anything at all
Darling please don't break my heart Let me help
I beg of you Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around.
Everytime I hear a new born baby cry, I get going when the sun goes down
Or touch a leaf or see the sky If your child needs a daddy, I can help And I'm with my baby.
I don't want no tears a-falling Then I know why, I believe It would sure do me good to do you good,
You know I hate to cry Let me help
But that's what's bound to happen Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and

And it was all for me. You make my life worth the living And there were three gates in the west
Yeah, I was born about ten thousand years ago Although we are apart Three gates in the north
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know I will be home again Three gates in the south
Saw Peter, Paul and Moses playing ring around the I'll never know who taught her to lie. And that makes twelve gates to the city all square
Now that it's over and done, We'll start anew

lion's tale I was born in Macon Georgia You make my life worth the living Well his eyes flashed fire like the burning sun
And I crossed over Canaan on a log They kept my daddy over in Macon jail Although we are apart Old John got scared and he wanted to run
He told me if you keep your hands clean I will be home again Well he wanted to run but his feet wouldn't go
You won't hear them bloodhounds on your trail We'll start anew Cause he felt the gospel cutting like a two-edged
I was born about ten thousand years ago sword
There ain't nothing in this world that I don't know Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do And he heard a voice that said John, you take a
I saved king David’s life and he offered me a wife Well I fell in with bad companions look
I said now you're talking business have a chair Robbed a man, oh up in Tennessee And read what you see and then you write it in a
They caught me way up in Nashville I Will Be True book
Yeah, I was born about ten thousand years ago They locked me up and threw away the key
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know I will be true And he saw twelve angels in the east
Saw Peter, Paul and Moses playing ring around the I washed my hands in muddy water No matter what they may say And there were twelve angels in the west
roses Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean I will be true Twelve angels in the north,
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so Tried to do what my daddy told me Although you're far far away Twelve angels in the south
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy Each night I pray That's a total of forty-eight angels to the city, four
stream All day I'll say a silent prayer squared wide
That when I open my door
I'll find you there
Well I asked the judge now when's my time up Somehow I feel If Every Day Was Like Christmas
He said son, oh you know we won't forget That someday we'll meet again
If you try just to keep your hands clean Don't ask me how
I Was the One We might just make a good man of you yet I hear the bells
It's something I can't explain Saying Christmas is near
Until the day They ring out to tell the world
I was the one who taught her to kiss Oh I couldn't wait to get my time up I give up all hope of you That this is the season of cheer
The way that she kisses you now. I broke out, broke out of Nashville jail Assure yourself this I'll do
And you know the way she touches your cheek, I just crossed the state-line of Georgia I will be true
Well, I taught her how. Well I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail I hear a choir
Singing sweetly somewhere
Oh oh mmmmmmm And a glow fills my heart
I was the one who taught her to cry I washed my hands in muddy water That someday we'll meet again I'm at peace with the world
When she wants you under her spell. Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean Don't ask me how As the sound of their singing fills the air
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind, Tried to do what my daddy told me It's something I can't explain
I taught her so well. But I must have washed my hands in a muddy Until the day
stream I give up all hope of you Oh why can't every day be like Christmas
Assure yourself this I'll do Why can't that feeling go on endlessly
And then one day I will be true For if everyday could be just like Christmas
I had my love as perfect as could be. I Will Be Home Again What a wonderful world this would be

39
I hear a child Writing letters everyday Wind and rain and storm closin' in on me Even in death He remembered
Telling Santa what to bring Never really seem to say I've walked the streets alone with my self The thief hanging by His side
And the smile upon his tiny face The way I feel deep in this heart of mine sympathy Then he spoke of love and compassion
Is worth more to me than anything Thought I'm half a world away Can you hear me saying hopefully And He took him to paradise
If we're patient and we pray If I were you I'd know that I love me
Know I'll get my chance with you this time Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me
If I Can Dream If I were you I'd know that I love me And if that isn't love
Then the ocean is dry
If I get home on Christmas day There's no stars in the sky
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere I won't need soft words to say If I'm a Fool (For Loving You) And the little sparrows can't fly
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue I'll miss you and I can stay a while Yeah if that isn't love
If I can dream of a better land You'll see it in my eyes and when I smile Then heaven's a myth
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I There's no feeling like this
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream want to be If that isn't love It's got to be love
come true If I get home before midnight They're saying I am just your clown and any fool
While you're still sleeping tight could see
I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay That you're just having fun and you're not in love If the Lord Wasn't Walking by My Side
There must be peace and understanding sometime If I get home on Christmas day with me
Strong winds of promise that will blow away I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay The things they're saying may be true, but there's
All the doubt and fear If I get home on Christmas day something they can't see I don't know just what I’d do
If I can dream of a warmer sun If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I If the Lord wasn't walking by my side
Where hope keeps shining on everyone want to be When I was drifting (when I was drifting on the
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun If I Loved You sea of a despair)
appear and I was wandering (I was wandering if
If I'm a dreamer, let me dream. If I'm your clown Jehovah's up there)
If I loved you I'll steal the show When Jesus found me,(Jesus found me in my
We're lost in a cloud Words wouldn't come in an easy way If things are not the way they seem, please don't sinful life)
With too much rain Round in circles I'd go ever let me know he heard me praying (he heard me praying on my
We're trapped in a world Only to tell you If I am blind it's because I just don't want to see knees at night)
That's troubled with pain But afraid and shy If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I Now I’m singing (Now I'm singing this happy song)
But as long as a man I let my golden chances pass me by want to be because I’m happy (because I'm happy as I go
Has the strength to dream along)
He can redeem his soul and fly And I don't know (I don't know) just what I’d do
Soon you'll leave me If I'm a dreamer, let me dream. If I'm your clown
Ought (?) you would go in a misty day If the Lord wasn't walking by my side
I'll steal the show What would I do, (What would I do when a tear
Deep in my heart there's a trembling question Never, never let you know If things are not the way they seem, please don't
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come I love you eternally fills my eyes)
ever let me know what would I do (What would I do when it's my
somehow If I am blind it's because I just don't want to see
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle time to die)
If I Were You If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I Well I’d be lonely, discouraged
And while I can think, while I can talk want to be
While I can stand, while I can walk Burdened on the way
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day
While I can dream, please let my dream The sandman comes to my house late each night want to be
Come true, right now But it's way in the morning before he turns out my If I'm a fool for loving you
Let it come true right now life I’d be so friendless (I'd be friendless all alone and
Oh yeah It's times like this my darling I can see blue)
If I were you I'd know that I love me If That Isn't Love and I'd be helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know
If I Get Home on Christmas Day what to do)
He left the splendor of heaven And I don't know (I don't know) just what I’d do
The great snowman I've been called by all If the Lord wasn't walking by my side
But it looks like this time I'm gonna fall Knowing His destiny
If I get home on Christmas day Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
I won't need soft words to say It's times like this my darling I can see
Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me There to lay down His life for me (What would I do) What would I do when the
I'll miss you and I can stay a while
You'll see it in my eyes and when I smile tears fill my eyes
And if that isn't love (What would I do) What would I do when it's my
Wind and rain and storm closin' in on me time to die
I've walked the streets alone with my self Then the ocean is dry
If I get home before midnight There's no stars in the sky (I'd be lonely, discouraged, burdened on the way)
While you're still sleeping tight sympathy If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day
Can you hear me saying hopefully And the little sparrows can't fly
I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay Yeah if that isn't love
If I get home on Christmas day Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me
Then heaven's a myth I’d be so friendless, (I'd be friendless all alone and
There's no feeling like this blue)
If that isn't love I'd be so helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know

40
what to do) If You Don't Come Back It's this and so much more that makes me love If you think I don't need you
And I don't know (I don't know) just what I’d do you Then baby you're wrong
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day What else can I do to make you see
(Woke up early in the morning) You know you'll have whatever's mine to give you

There's another meeting place somewhere in If You Think I Don't Need You But I'll be back, Yeah, I'll be back
heaven
By the side of the river of life The arms that open wide to hold me closer
The hands that run their fingers through my hair If you think I don't need you Yeah! There ain't nobody tell me stay or go, oh no
The smile that says hello it's good to see you Then take a look in my eyes And no-one tells the four winds where to blow-ow-
Where the charming roses bloom forever Any time I turn around and find you there Maybe these ain't raindrops ow
And where separations come no more Falling out of the sky I'll be back, I'm comin' back

La la la la la la la la la la la la la Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone. You were flyin to high for my little ol' sky I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
La la la la la la la la la la la la la You're right, and I'm left all alone. So I'm movin' on. Move on baby.
Well, you tried to tell me so,
But how was I to know Hear that lonesome winter bird
Well I know, if I'd arrived in time to know you That she was not the one for me? Mr. Farmer won't you please listen to me He sounds too blue to fly
You'd have taken the time to show me 'Cause I gotta pretty momma in Tennessee The midnight train is whining low
I wouldn't be lonely Keep rollin on, keep movin' on, I'm so lonesome I could cry
You told me all along, Please listen to me let this rattler free
You're right, our love was so wrong. And keep movin' on
Where will I go, who will I have to lie beside me But now I changed my mind, Move on ol' son, move on Did you ever see a robin weep
Is it something that's inside me Because she broke the ties that bind, When leaves began to die
I'm so lonely And I know that she never cared for me. That means he's lost the will to live
Well I told you baby from time to time I'm so lonesome I could cry
But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind
Tried so hard each time, each time I just can't Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do, And now I'm movin' on, I'm rollin' on
make it I guess I'm not so smart. I'm through with you, too bad you're blue The silence of a falling star
Feelin' fast vibrations and I just can't take it Oh, you tried to tell me along she'd only break my But I'm movin' on Lights up a purple sky
Living from day to day, chasing the dream heart. Move on baby, move on And as I wonder where you are
I'm, I'm leavin I'm left, you're right, she's gone. I said move on, I said move on, I'm so lonesome I could cry
You're right, and I'm left all alone. I said move on, I said move on, I'm so lonesome I could cry

La la la la la la la la la la la la la Well I'm through with you, too bad you're blue


La la la la la la la la la la la la la I said move on, I said move on I'm With a Crowd But So Alone
Well, she's gone I know not where, I said move on, I said move on
But now I just don't care.
Tried so hard each time, each time I just can't For now I'm falling for you. I'm with a crowd but oh so alone
make it I'm Not the Marrying Kind I still have the picture you sent me
Feelin' fast vibrations and I just can't take it If you'll forgive me now, And you signed it with love you recall
Living from day to day, chasing the dream I'll make it up somehow. Show me a girl with a dimple on her cheek And the one of me that you wanted
I'm, I'm leavin So happy we will be, Butter melts in her mouth Is now hanging face to the wall
In a home just for three, When she opens it to speak At night I'm never alone
And I'll soon forget her, Show me a girl who is acting so refined I'm afraid that I'll weaken and phone
La la la la la la la la la la la la la And I'm afraid that you will be gone
I'm, I'm leavin Now I know. And I'll show you a girl with one thing on her mind
I'm with a crowd but oh so alone
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do, So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I guess I'm not so smart. I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind I'm Yours
You tried to tell me all along, For you've got what it takes
She'd only break my heart. And it takes what you've got My love I offer you now
But I'm not the marrying kind My heart and all it can give
Don't kiss me, don't claw me For just as long as I live I’m yours
Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone. Don't pet me, don't paw me
You're right, and I'm left all alone. No arms but yours dear will do
And I won't leave my freedom behind" My lips will always be true
Well, she's gone, I know not where,
But now I just don't care, My eyes can only see you, I’m yours
For now I've fallen for you. So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind. And as the years roll along
You know what?" She says "What?" Your joy and tears I’ll gladly share
I'm Movin' On "Thanks a lot, but I'm not the marrying kind And when things go wrong dear
Don't kiss me, don't claw me Just hold out your hand and I’ll be there
That big eight-wheeler runnin' down the track Don't pet me, don't paw me With every beat of my heart
Means your true lovin' daddy ain't acomin' back And I won't leave my freedom behind" With every breath that I take
'Cause he's movin on, he's rollin on Now and forever, sweetheart, I’m yours
You were flyin to high for my little ol' sky So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
So I'm movin' on I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind In My Father's House (Are Many Mansions)
I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not
But some day baby when you've had you play Now you've got what I'm not
Your gonna want your daddy but your daddy will I'm not the marrying kind In my father's house are many mansions
I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone (My say Oh I'm not the marrying kind If it were not true he would have told me so
Baby's gone) Keep movin' on, keep rollin' on Oh I'm not the marrying kind He has gone away to live in that bright city
He's preparing me a mansion there I know

44
Jesus died upon the cross to bear my sorrow In the ghetto Well, it don't take much to keep me satisfied Daddy, he was a traveling man
Freely died that souls like you might have new life And his mama cries Just a little bit of lovin' that's bonafide I hardly knew his face
But I know that soon there'll come a bright 'cause if there's one thing that she don't need In your arms keep me tangled up all the time Momma, she cried for him at night
tomorrow it's another hungry mouth to feed Like a kitten with a ball of twine He never stayed in one place
When the world will all be free from sin and strife In the ghetto

Yeah baby, that's where I want to stay 'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
(Do not shun the saviors love, from up in glory) People, don't you understand For the rest of my natural days Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
(Or you won't be there to sing the gospel story) the child needs a helping hand In your arms In the morning I'll have to leave again
In my father's house are many mansions or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day In your arms That's how it is when you inherit the wind
If you're true then to this land you'll surely go Take a look at you and me, Inherit the wind
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads Indescribably Blue
In My Way and look the other way Oh I can't give you the love you need
I just won't be here that long
Our friends all ask me But if you still want me here tonight
I may not be here tomorrow Well the world turns The last time I saw you I'll love you till the break of dawn
But I'm close beside you today and a hungry little boy with a runny nose And I smile and tell them
So lie to me a little, say you love me a lot plays in the street as the cold wind blows It's been a day or two
And I'll be true to you in my way In the ghetto 'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
There's no way to explain it In the morning I'll have to leave again
Love never goes on forever And his hunger burns The way that I miss you That's how it is when you inherit the wind
At least that's what wise men all say so he starts to roam the streets at night And my love, you have left me Inherit the wind
So smile when you kiss me, tomorrow you may cry and he learns how to steal Indescribably blue Inherit the wind, inherit the wind
But I'll be true to you in my way and he learns how to fight
Yes I'll be true to you in my way In the ghetto I talk to your picture Is It So Strange
My fav'rite one of you
In the Garden Then one night in desperation I wish that you were here with me
a young man breaks away But what good will it do Oh, if you tell a lie
He buys a gun, steals a car, You know that I'll forgive you
I come to the garden alone Though you say our love is just a game
While the dew is still on the roses tries to run, but he don't get far Having no way to tell you
And his mama cries And when you hear my name
And the voice I hear falling on my ear The pain that I’ve been through You'll say I'm from a strange world
The song of God discloses Oh, my love, you have left me But is it so strange to be in love with you
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man Indescribably blue
face down on the street with a gun in his hand Yes, my love, you have left me
And He walks with me Indescribably blue Is it so strange
And He talks with me In the ghetto
That I love you more than all the world
And He tells me I am his own Is it so strange
And the joy we share as we tarry there As her young man dies, I have no eyes for any other girl
None other has ever known on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
another little baby child is born
In the ghetto Oh won't you take me back
He speaks and the sound of His voice And say that you still love me
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing To waste a love like ours would be a sin
And the melody that He gave to me Inherit the Wind
In Your Arms Let us kiss again
Within my heart is ringing Let me hold you near
Baby don't fall in love with me And take me from this strange world
Oh, the way I feel tonight I'll only bring you grief That I'm living in
And He walks with me You better wrap me up good and tight
And He talks with me Baby, don't set your heart on me
In your arms I'll only have to leave
And He tells me I am his own In your arms
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known 'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
Just like a bee in a honeycomb Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
I'm gonna make myself right at home In the morning I'll have to leave again
In the Ghetto In your arms That's how it is when you inherit the wind
In your arms Inherit the wind
As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born

Step in these arms, where you belong You may have longed for added strength, It Won't Be Long
It feels so right, so right Your courage to renew.
How can it be wrong? Do not be disheartened,
For I have news for you. The shooting stars are coming out of your eyes
They point the way, the way to paradise
There's something in the way you kiss I got a funny feeling, I can't be wrong
That makes me want to hold you tight It is no secret what God can do. It won't be long until the sparks will fly
I know that nothing can't be wrong What He's done for others, He'll do for you. It won't be long
that feels so right. With arms wide open, He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.
I hear a buzz, buzz around in my brain
Each time we touch, you thrill me so But what it does, is bound to drive me insane
It means so much, so much There is no night for in His light At a time like this I must be strong
I can't let you go You never walk alone. It won't be long till the sky falls down
Island of Love Always feel at home, It won't be long
Wherever you may go.
This isn't only for tonight
Kauai, island of love We're gonna love our whole life long Love has taught me plenty, I'm still learning more
Lovely princess of the islands 'Cause baby, if it feels so right There is no power can conquer you Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Kauai, island of love How can it be wrong? While God is on your side. Here I go, I'm on a one way trip
Listen, can't you hear her calling Take Him at His promise, Look out below because I'm about to flip
Don't run away and hide. I tell you when these lips get to that kiss
It Hurts Me
Aloha welcome my love
Her palmtrees gently do the hula It is no secret what God can do. It won't be long until we're out of this world
While her slaves, the waves It hurts me to see him treat you the way he does What He's done for others, He'll do for you. It won't be long
Rush in to kiss her shores It hurts me to see sit and cry With arms wide open, He'll pardon you.
When I know I could be so true It is no secret what God can do.
If I had someone like you Love has taught me plenty, I'm still learning more
Heaven is another name for It hurts me to see those tears in your eyes Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Kauai, island of love It Keeps Right on A-hurtin' Here I go, I'm on a one way trip
Look out below because I'm about to flip
The whole town is talking, they're callin' you a fool I tell you when these lips get to that kiss
It Ain't No Big Thing But It's Growing For listening to his same old lies I cry myself to sleep each night It won't be long, it won't be long until we're out of
And when I know I could be so true Wishing I could hold you tight this world
If I had someone like you Life seems so empty since you went away It won't be long
Your losing interest in me and it's showin' It hurts me to see the way he makes you cry And the pillow where you lay your head
It ain't no big thing but it's growin' It won't be long, it won't be long until we're out of
Now holds my empty dreams instead this world
The pain of heartbreak I've just started knowin' And it keeps right on a-hurtin'
Well, it ain't no big thing but it's growin' You love him too much, you're too blind to see It won't be long
Since you're gone
He's only playing a game
But he's never loved you It Won't Seem Like Christmas
Every day the hurt grows bigger than before He never will It keeps right on a'hurtin every minute of the day
But I'll pretend I don't know this And darling, don't you know he will never change Every hour you're away I feel so lonely
But If I can hold you one day more And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on Oh, it won't seem like Christmas, oh, without you
You've got the look of someone who's goin' And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone Far too many miles are between
You're gonna leave me and it's showin' Oh, I know he never will set you free But if I get the one thing I'm waiting for
A little tear I can feel start to flow Because he's just that kind of guy Well then I'll se you tonight in my dreams
It ain't no big thing but it's growin' But if you ever tell him you're through They say a man ain't supposed to cry
I'll be waiting for you But when I see you passing by
Waiting to hold you so tight My heart breaks down and cries a million tears Seems a long time since we've been together
Well every day the hurt grows bigger than before Waiting to kiss you goodnight The pillow where you lay your head It was just about to this time of the year
But I'll pretend I don't know this Yes, darling, if I had someone like you Now holds my empty dreams instead Looks like it's gonna be snowy weather
Well, if I can hold you one day more And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone How I wish that you could be here
You've got the look of someone who's goin'
Well, you're gonna leave me and it's showin' It Is No Secret (What God Can Do)
A little tear I can feel start to flow It keeps right on a'hurtin every minute of the day But it won't seem like Christmas, oh, without you
Well it ain't no big thing but it's growing Every hour you're away I feel so lonely Far too many miles are between
No, it ain't no big thing but it's growing The chimes of time ring out the news, And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on But if I get the one thing that I'm wishing for
Another day is through. And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone Then I'll see you tonight in my dreams
Someone slipped and fell. Yes, it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone
It Feels So Right Was that someone you?

In the distance I hear sleigh bells ringing It's a long, long way from now to maybe sometime This big wide world is a clown with his nose wonderful by far
The holly is so pretty this year And the waiting round is really killing me painted red Yes, you're different now
And the carol that somebody's singing A rainbow colored balloon's dancing high overhead There's more to love than holding hands and
Reminds me of our Christmas last year It's everyone's oyster, step up get your pearl stealing kisses
It's a matter of time before I go back there It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful No-one else around
A matter of time oh Lord, before I go home world There's the good times and the bad
It Wouldn't Be the Same without You It's a long way I know and the goin' ain't easy There's the ups and downs we've had
She'll see me again it's a matter of time But it's different now I'm so glad I still have you
This big wide world is a clown with his nose
I could wander the byway, rewander too painted red
But it wouldn't be the same without you I think I'll take a train right early in the morning A rainbow colored balloon's dancing high overhead Ah
Those familiair old places would just make me blue Just to see how far I get along the way It's everyone's oyster, step up get your pearl
'Cause it wouldn't be the same without you But the trains don't run too often only sometimes It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
So I guess I'd better wait another day world There's always something new to see
It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful I look at you, you look at me
I wasted my love on a careless romance And we're so different now
But I'd do it again, if I had the chance It's a matter of time before I go back there world
Love gets better every day 'n in some peculiar way
I could start my life over with somebody new A matter of time before I go home It's always different now
But it wouldn't be the same without you It's a long way I know and the goin' ain't easy It's Carnival Time If we ever say goodbye, you'd be lost
She'll see me again, it's just a matter of time And so would I, what's the difference now
She'll see me I know it's a matter of time between us
I wasted my love on a careless romance Come on kids from eight to eighty
But I'd do it again, if I had the chance Love just for a day, and a love that's here to stay
Hey there mister bring your lady That's the difference now, the difference now
I could start my life over with somebody new It's a Sin There's a big show on the inside
But it wouldn't be the same without you It's carnival time
It's a sin, my darling Ah

If you ever tire of the good life It's getting late and I know that's when I am weak Just like a willow, If time were not a moving thing
Call me in a year or two Funny how things have a way of looking so much we would cry an ocean And I could make it stay
I've got no choice, I'll forgive you brighter in the day light If we lost true love This hour of love we share
'Cause it's easy for you I ought to go to bed to try and straighten out my and sweet devotion Would always be
head and just forget you Your lips excite me, There'd be no coming day
Oh but it's midnight yes and I miss you let your arms invite me To shine a morning light
You only have to call me, it's easy for you For who knows when And make us realize our night is over
You only have to call me, it's easy for you we'll meet again this way
It's getting late and I know that's when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much When you walk away from me
It's Impossible brighter in the day light It's now or never, There is no place to put my hand
I ought to go to bed to try and straighten out my come hold me tight Except to shade my eyes against the sun
It's impossible to tell the sun to leave the sky, head and just forget you Kiss me my darling, That rises over the land
It's just impossible. Oh but it's midnight yes and I miss you be mine tonight I watch you walk away
It's impossible to ask a baby not to cry, Tomorrow will be too late, Somehow I have to let you go
It's just impossible. it's now or never Cause it's over
It's midnight and I miss you My love won't wait.
Can I hold you closer to me
And not feel you going through me, If you knew just how I really feel
But the second that I never think of you? It's No Fun Being Lonely It's Only Love You might return and yet
Oh, how impossible. There are so many times
It's no fun being lonely That people have to love and then forget
I see the the sunlight in her hair Oh there might have been a way somehow
Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore? ... I feel the warm smile that she wears
It's just impossible. Morning must come I have to force myself to say
She has no recipe for love It's over
If I had you could I ever ask for more? Knowing, knowing there's no one for me But I just can't get enough
It's just impossible. .....
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world So I turn my back,
Somehow I'd get it, I would sell my very soul Knowing, knowing there's no one waiting for me From the distance of my mind Turn my collar to the wind
And not regret it for to live without your love Clock that's ringing says it's time Move along in silence
Is just impossible (note: For the correct lyrics call Red West :-)) Wake up to my destiny Trying not to think at all
It's time to face reality I set my feet before me
Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore? It's Now or Never Walk the silent street before me
It's just impossible. It's only love that I feel inside Now it's over
If I had you could I ever ask for more? But I'll get by somehow
It's just impossible. It's now or never, It's only love, there must be something else for me
come hold me tight If time were not a moving thing
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world girl And I could make you stay
Somehow I'd get it, I would sell my very soul Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight This hour of love we share
And not regret it for to live without your love Would always be
Is just impossible Tomorrow will be too late, I tell myself that it's not real
it's now or never There's nothing left for me to feel There'd be no coming day
Oh impossible, To shine a morning light
Impossible. My love won't wait. I'll just be going on my way
Tomorrow brings another day And make us realize our night is over
Impossible
When I first saw you
with your smile so tender Only love that I feel inside It's over
It's Midnight
My heart was captured, But I've got to be strong
my soul surrendered My mind's made up, it's only love It's Still Here
(Words & music by Wheeler - Chesnut) I'd spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near But I know I'll get by, take my heart and my pride The day you said we'd never part
Maybe it's too late. Sometimes I even hate myself the time is here at last. And just throw it aside You turned around and broke my heart
for loving you It's only love You had the nerve to tell me I would soon forget
Trying to be strong then nighttime comes along Now you've been gone away one year
and I start loving you It's now or never, And I have not forgotten dear
Wanting you. Where is all my selfcontrol I'm come hold me tight It's only love, it's only love, it's only love
It's only love The love I had for you so long
burning way down in my soul Kiss me my darling, Is still here
And needing you, and wishing I could be the man, be mine tonight It's only love
Wow-oh
I try to Tomorrow will be too late,
Hating me for wanting you to be with you knowing it's now or never It's Over
you don't love me like you used to My love won't wait. It's here, still here
But it's midnight, Ohh and I miss you Because my heart cannot believe

48
We're really through And I’m tired of hearing about it friend Because I, I've got confidence, I've Lost You
And though you said we'd never part It's your baby you, rock it God is gonna see me through
You turned around and broke my heart No matter what the case may be
The love I had for you so long I know He's gonna fix it for me Lying by your side I watch you sleeping
Is still here I've Been Blue And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring the dreams you won't recapture
Job was so sick so long Though it will haunt the corners of you mind
It's here, still here (You) Where, o where are you Till the flesh fell from his bones
Because my heart cannot believe Tell me where are you His wife, cattle and children,
We're really through Where are the nights we spent together Everything that he had was gone I've Lost though you're near me
Now you've been gone away one year Where is your promise But Job he never dispaired And your body's still this kind
And I have not forgotten dear that you will leave me never He knew that God still cared I've lost you on a journey,
The love I had for you so long I've been blue the whole day through Sleepless days and sleepless nights But I can't remember where or when
Is still here Where o where are you Job said honey that's all right
Wow-oh Who can tell when summer turns to autumn
I've Got a Thing About You Baby 'Cause I've got confidence And who can point the moment love grows cold
It's here, it's here, still here God is gonna see me through Softly without pain the joy is over
Because my heart cannot believe No matter what the case may be Though why it's gone will neither of us know
I've got something to tell you
We're really through That I think you ought to know I know He's gonna fix it for me
And though you said we'd never part That my eyes are on you baby Oh, I've lost you yes, I've lost you
You turned around and broke my heart Since a long time ago I can't reach you anymore
The love I had for you so long Some folks wonder how I smile
And now I fin'ly got the nerve Even though I'm going to trial We ought to talk it over now
Is still here And I'm gonna make my move But reason can't stand in for feeling, oh
Wow-ow How can I have song
Now don't you try to turn me off Everything is going wrong
Cause it's gonna be hard to do I don't worry and I don't fret Six o'clock the baby will be crying
It's here, still here God has never failed me yet And you will stumble, sleeping to the door
Because my heart cannot believe I've got a thing about you baby In the chill and solemn gray of morning
We're really through Ain't nothing I can do We play the parts that we have learned to well
And though you said we'd never part Trouble's coming from time to time
I've got a thing about you baby That's all right, I'm not the worrying kind
You turned around and broke my heart A thing about lovin' you
The love I had for you so long 'Cause I've got confidence..... Oh I've lost you, oh, I've lost you
Is still here Oh, You won't admit it so
Oh yeah Ain't it just like a woman I've Got to Find My Baby I've lost you on a journey,
When she knows she's got a man But I can't remember where or when no more
She'll wring you out and turn you 'bout
It's Your Baby, You Rock It In the palm of her hand I've got to find my baby
And then she starts to thinkin' I wonder where can she be Oh, I've lost you yes, I've lost you
Then maybe she's put you in a blind Has anybody seen her I can't reach you anymore
You offered me a penny for my thoughts We ought to talk it over now
And I told you then that woman won't stay caught She'll give you just a little lovin' Send her back to me
It'll drive you out of your mind But reason can't stand in for feeling, oh
But you turned and loved her anyway
She broke your heart and all I’ve got to say She left me here all alone
I've got a thing about you baby And I ain't had no lovin' Oh, I've lost you yes, I've lost you
Ain't nothing you can do Since my baby's been gone I can't reach you anymore
It's your baby, you rock it We ought to talk it over now
It's your heartache, you bought it I've got a thing about you baby My baby's gone
A thing about lovin' you But reason can't stand in for feeling, oh
You made the bed your sleeping in
And I’m tired of hearing about it friend I've gotta find my baby
It's your baby you, rock it I've Got Confidence I gotta hold her tight and tell her I love her It's a Sin to Tell a Lie
Tell her everything's all right
Well you cried upon my shoulder like a baby So I'll keep searching ... When you say I Love You
When trouble is in my way All night long
I'm sorry 'bout your troubles and your lady I can't tell the night from day It's a sin to tell a lie
But she done you like she done me 'Cause I ain't had no lovin' Millions of hearts have been broken
I toss from side to side Since my baby's been gone
And I’ve used up all my sympathy Like a ship on a raging tide Just because these words were spoken
It's your baby you, rock it My baby's gone Like you (?)
I don't worry and I don't fret
God has never failed me yet
It's your baby, you rock it Troubles comin' from time to time I've gotta find my baby So be sure it is true when you say I Love You
It's your heartache, you bought it But that's all right, 'cause I'm not the worrying I've gotta find my baby It's a sin to tell a lie
You made the bed your sleeping in kind Gotta find my baby

Don't tell her I’m feeling blue Who plays rock and roll He's the king of the whole wide world

I knew it then, I'd be back again On this lonely Kentucky backroad He sings a song about meat and greens Of the whole wide world

All the crying is true Then he plays something sweet
Oh, I will hold you and love you again No matter what he plays
But until then, well just pretend Kentucky rain keeps pouring down You got to get up on your feet When you meet by chance, it's not by chance
And up ahead's another town It's kismet

to you Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars And love is life. To find without you
The night may be dark but hope very hard and Oo oo oo oo oo
dreams can come true Oh, oo oo oo
You live in silence but for once let's pretend Let's forget about the stars, come follow me my Like a Baby That my love was just for you, 'n only you
We're talking here together, let's be friends dove
To a world just like the world that you've been
dreaming of You gave me love to enjoy Little Egypt
You're not alone, I've always known that we'd get Let's not wait too long for something might go Like a bright shiny toy to a baby
along wrong No matter what you would do
And someone I know says life is good and He can't Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars I depended on you like a baby I went and bought myself a ticket and I sat down
be wrong Let's forget about the stars in the very first row
There's fun and laughter just waiting round the Let's forget about the stars They pulled the curtain but then when they turned
One thing I know I love you the spotlight way down low
bend Let's forget about the stars Yes I loved you like a baby
Let's find them now together, let's be friends Little Egypt came out a-struttin' wearin' nothin' but
It was a fool that you took a button and a bow
Life And I think 'cause you look like a baby Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
Let's find them now together, let's be friends

Somewhere out in empty space, To lover's ways I was blind She had a ruby on her tummy and a diamond big
long before the human race, 'Cause I just had a mind like a baby as Texas on her toe
Something stirred, You're just a flirt She let her hair down and she did the hoochie-
A vast and timeless source began, And I had to be her guide like a baby coochie real slow
Intelligence was born and then, When she did her special number on the zebra skin
there was the world, I need you so, I need you so I thought she'd stop the show
Powers filled the universe, The day I found I am alive Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
matter formed and broke the curse, Then I broke down and cried like a baby
Of nothingness, Well it was then I could see
Love became an ageless soul, She did her triple somersault and when she hit the
You were playing with me like a baby ground
nature reached her highest goal, Well you can bet that some day
And breathed the breath of life, She winked at the audience and then she turned
I'll forget just like a baby around
Everlasting life.
She had a picture of a cowboy tatooed on her
Little Cabin on the Hill spine
Well creatures come from out of sight, Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949
Daylight came from in the night,
and all was good, Tonight I’m alone without you my dear
Life became a masterplan, It seems that there's a longing for you still Yeh, let me tell you people Little Egypt doesn't
Love produced the perfect man, Oh but I just keep it there so I won't be alone dance there anymore
that understood, In our little cabin on the hill She's too busy mopping and a-takin' care of
The image of the makers word, shopping at the store
worshipped him with all he had, 'Cos we've got seven kids and all day long they
But then one day, Oh someone has taken you from me crawl around the floor
From in the depths an evil seed, And left me here all alone Singing ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
grew and manufactured greed, To listen to the rain beat on our window pane
That changed the way of life, In our little cabin on the hill
Little Sister
Everlasting life,
Let's Forget About the Stars Little Darlin'
Well, I dated your big sister
Oh the loving power looked and saw, And took her to a show
If you let the stars keep telling you Inside the heart of man a flaw, Little darlin', little darlin' I went for some candy
Who to love and not to love began to grow, Oh where, are you, oo oo oo oo Along came Jim Dandy
You may never find contentment for your heart Well, the fires of hell began to burn, Walla walla chipa mocka mogga And they snuck right out of the door
You could go unloved forever and darling that and so he sent his chosen son, Oh my lover, oh just for you, only you
means never To let us know,
Surrender to love, let's forget about the stars That love had surely made us all, Ev'ry time I see your sister
and hate would surely make us fall, My darling, I need you Well she's got somebody new
So from the cross, Darling I need you to call my own She's mean and she's evil
You say that stars have promised you true love ten To hold your life, your little foot, your hand Like that old Boll Weevil
Well he showed the world that dreadful day,
thousand times I knew someone would understand that Guess I'll try my luck with you
That love could be the only way,
But here you are with a broken heart and mind Hold my hand
or all is lost of life,
I can tell you want to love me from the beating in
Everlasting life,

If you don't call me baby Searchin' till the early dawn 'Cos sooner or later talent must win out
It's a lonely man Then I’m never coming home For that long legged girl with the short dress on Look out Broadway, we're comin' fast
Who wanders all around Now we're gonna see our names in lights at last
It's a lonely man No more hot dogs at Sloppy Joe's
Who roams from town to town Long Black Limousine And everywhere I go she's been and gone We're gonna dine on steak and wine at Del

I remember all the times you told me I memorize ev'ry line I'll be sad and blue, But if it can't be
Love's all that matters to you I kiss the name that you sign Crying over you, dear only. Give this moment to me
And looking back now, wondering how I believed And darlin, then I read again right from the start While our dream is bright
I had things more important to do Love letters straight from your heart Put your sweet arms around me
I can see how I must have looked to you I would beg and steal And love me tonight
Like some fool on a merry-go-round Just to feel your heart
And that a man's so busy going up in the world Love Me Beatin' close to mine
That he couldn't see love going down Love me tonight
Love going down Let me feel your lips on mine
Well, if you ever go, And though I pray
Darling, I'll be oh so lonely Forever and a day I'll be
Beggin' on knees, Possessing you
All I ask is please, please love me
Oh yeah
I'll confess to you
If I knew that our love would be gone
Love Me Tender With the stars in the dawn's grey light
I'd still hold you close and whisper
Love me tender, Love me tonight
love me sweet,
never let me go. Love Me, Love the Life I Lead
You have made my life complete,
and I love you so.
I am not a wise man neither am I a fool
But what I am the way the good Lord made me
Love me tender, Though I need you more than you may ever
love me true, understand
all my dreams fulfilled. I can't wear a face that will betray me
For my darlin' I love you,
and I always will.
Oh, If you're gonna love me, love the life I lead
Need the things I need, don't try to change me
Love me tender, If you're gonna take me, take me for what I am
love me long, I can't be another man, I can't be free
take me to your heart. 'Cos The life I lead is the life I lead
For it's there that I belong,
and we'll never part.
Money in my pocket never seems to last too long
I've gambled on the way and drowned my sorrows
Treat me like a fool, Love me tender, Though God knows I can't pretend it's better on
Treat me mean and cruel, love me dear, my own
Can't you see how everything I’ve learned But love me. tell me you are mine. I can't promise you a new tomorrow
Would just be wasted if you leave me I'll be yours through all the years,
If you just give one more try till the end of time.
Wring my faithful heart, Oh, If you're gonna love me, love the life I lead
I swear I’ll always be here when you need me Tear it all apart,
If you can find it in your heart to forgive me Need the things I need, don't try to change me
But love me. (When at last my dreams come true If you're gonna take me, take me for what I am
I'll try to keep both my feet on the ground Darling this I know
But if a man's so busy going up in the world I can't be another man, I can't be free
Happiness will follow you 'Cos The life I lead is the life I lead
That he couldn't see love coming down If you ever go, Everywhere you go).
Love coming down Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
I'll be sad and blue, Love Song of the Year
Crying over you, dear only. Love Me Tonight
Love Letters
I used to laugh when I should cry
I would beg and steal May this tenderness cling I used to let these feelings pass me by
Love letters straight from your heart Just to feel your heart When the fire of Spring
Keep us so near while apart But now that I believe them
Beatin' close to mine Is a memory I got no-one to leave them to me
I'm not alone in the night May you still be my own
When I can have all the love you write You see I traded love for what I thought must be
When a hundred years have flown free
Well, if you ever go,
Darling, I'll be oh so lonely

I remember crying when she used to sing Chasing the rainbow in her dreams so far away
Oh, mama liked the roses but most of all she cared Marguerita...is her name
And when she turns to touch me I kiss her fingers
About the way we learned to live so softly The cadillac moved to a hundred and four
And if we said our prayers Marguerita... And then my Mary wake to love and love again got hot and wouldn't do no more
It got cloudy and started to rain
You know I kept the family bible Tooted my horn in the passing lane
Her lips have made me her prisoner And Mary's there in summer days or stormy The rain water blowin all under my hood
With a rose that she saved inside A slave to her every command weather
It was pressed between the pages I knew that was doin' my motor no good
She captivates me, and intoxicates me She doesn't care how right or wrong the love we

I'm satisfied with just a cottage below When through the sleepy haze I see her lying
A little silver and a little gold there The motor cooled down, the heat went down
I'll hold you tight in the moonlight tonight And that's when I heard that highway sound.
But in that city where the ransomed will shine Soft as the rain that falls on summerflowers I love you Mary Lou Brown
I want a gold one that's silver lined Warm as the sunlight shining on her head The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead
Twinkeling stars told the milky white way A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead.
That I marry Mary Lou Brown The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
And I will tell all the world And I caught Mabellene at the top of the hill.

And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy How I long to be with you
My happiness
Let's go on a moonlight swim Yes my baby left me,
We're in love and above never said a word. I know it's hard to understand
There's a crazy balloon Was it something I done, Why did we ever start? Every day I reminesce
That sits winking down something that she heard? We're more like strangers now Dreaming of your tender kiss
And inviting us to come on in Each acting out a part Always thinking how I miss
On a moonlight swim I have laughed, I have cried My happiness
My baby left me,
my baby left me. I have lost every game
My baby even left me, Taken all I can take A million years it seems
Mr. Songman But I'll stay just the same
never said a word. Have gone by since we shared our dreams
But I'll hold you again
Here's another dime for you, Mr. Songman Because you're all I have, my boy There'll be no blue memories then
Sing the loneliness of broken dreams away, if you Now I stand at my window,
wring my hands and cry. You are my life, my pride, my joy
can And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
Yes it's only me and you, Mr. Songman I hate to lose that woman, Whether skies are grey or blue
hate to say goodbye. Sleep on, you haven't heard a word Any place on earth will do
Take away the night sing away my hurt, Mr.
Songman Just as long as I'm with you
Perhaps it's just as well My happiness
You know she left me,
yes, she left me. Why spoil your little dreams
In your ivory covered house, safe behind your Why put you through the hell
walls of glass My baby even left me, A million years it seems
never said a word. Life is no fairytale Have gone by since we shared our dreams
You keep staring back at me like a memory from As one day you will know
the past But I'll hold you again
But now you're just a child There'll be no blue memories then
Won't you sing me away to a summer night Baby, one of these mornings, I'll stay her and watch you grow
Let me hold you in my arms again Lord, it won't be long,
I know memory's not re-living You'll look for me and, Whether skies are grey or blue
But at least it's not the end Baby, and daddy he'll be gone. Because you're all I have, my boy Any place on earth will do
You are my life, my pride, my joy Just as long as I'm with you
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy My happiness
Here's another dime for you Mr. Songman You know you left me,
Sing the loneliness of broken dreams away, if you you know you left me.
can My baby even left me, My Desert Serenade My Heart Cries for You
Yes it's only me and you, Mr. Songman never said a word.
Won't you take away the night, sing away my hurt,
Mr. Songman Come here my serenade, my desert serenade If you're in Arizona, I'll follow you
Now, I stand at my window, A lover's melody, to bring you close to me If you're in Albuquerque, I'll be there too
wring my hands and moan. It's a tender lullaby, born of golden sand and sky We'll have a little chance to start a-new
Won't you sing me away to a summer night All I know is that The song is new, and it's calling you Because my love is endless for you
Let me hold her in my arms again the one I love is gone.
Take away the night sing away my hurt, Mr.
Songman Tonight beside the desert palms My heart cries for you
My baby left me, Come let me take you in my arms Sighs for you, dies for you
you know she left me. My arms long for you
My Babe My baby even left me, Please come back to me
Come here my serenade, my desert serenade
never said a word. Wherever lovers dwell, it weaves it's magic spell An unimportant quarrel
Well, my babe don't stand no cheating, my babe Soon a thousand dreams will start, Is what we had
Well, my babe don't stand no cheating, my babe My Boy And romance will fill your heart
You know, my babe don't stand no cheating My lips conceal, love that's warm and real

We have to learn to live with the good and bad Somewhere far away and maybe not so far away I've loved, I've laughed and cried Well it took my baby, but it never will again (no,
Come together da da da la dum.... The child has grown into a woman of the world I've had my fails, my share of losing not again)
This loneliness is driving me mad I assume just knowing that she knew so much of And now as tears subside
life at such a tender age I find it all so amusing
I learned from her the whispered things the big To think I did all that Train train, comin' down, down the line
My heart cries for you boys at the pool hall talk about And may I say, not in a shy way Train train, comin' down the line
Sighs for you, dies for you The thrill and disappointment, fear and shame that Oh, no, no not me Well it's bringin' my baby, 'cause she's mine all, all
My arms long for you first love brings I did it my way mine
Please come back to me But oh, how I thought I loved my little friend (She's mine, all, all mine)

For what is a man, what has he got


My heart cries for you The fragrance of the green grass mingled with the If not himself, then he has not Never Again
Sighs for you, dies for you scent of love and warming earth To say the words he truly feels
My arms long for you The moonlight night I kissed and cried and swore And not the words he would reveal
Please come back to me I hope I never ever love anyone this much again
I'd never touch another girl The record shows I took the blows I can't take it anymore, I’ve been hurt before
Please come back, come back, come back to me But time moved fast and I moved on and I loved And did it my way Never ever quite like this time
others time and time again The record shows I took the blows
But with each time I thought of her and always And did it my way
gave a little more What will become of me when you're no longer
Assembled love and rememberance for my little here
friend My Wish Came True If I can't stop loving you, what am I to do
Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for You'll be free but where will I be
my little friend My wish came true
Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for When I met you
my little friend Now that I’m used to love, how can I stand alone
I've searched and searched Now that love has come and gone, like the ending
Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for My whole life through
my little friend of a song
A song my lonely heart keeps singing
There's just one thing
My Way Dear before we start Where do I go from here, will I get over you
Don't say you care If so, next time I’ll be smart, I’ll know before I
And now the end is near Then break my heart start
So I face the final curtain A heart that don't care, don't get broken
My friend, I'll say it clear When you speak of love
I'll state my case of which I'm certain Please be sincere I hope I never ever love anyone this much again
For if you play with love Never ever, never again
I've lived a life that's full It can bring tears my dear Never again
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this My wish came true
I did it my way Never Been to Spain
To my surprise
When you stood there before my eyes
Regrets, I've had a few Well I've never been to Spain
But then again, too few to mention But I kinda like the music
My Little Friend And when my heart Say the ladies are insane there
I did what I had to do Started beating fast
And saw it through without exception And they sure know how to use it
T'was then I knew The don't abuse it
My warped and worried mind resortd I found true love at last
To wandering off to ponder things I never talk Never gonna loose it
about I planned each charted course I can't refuse it
A pretty girl I used to know but wouldn't know if Each careful step along the byway Mystery Train
we met face to face Oh, and more, much more than this
I did it my way Well, I've never been to England
And defying every logic known But I kind of like the Beatles
I wish all the time machine could take me back Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Train I ride, sixteen coaches long So I headed for Las Vegas
again Yes, there were times, I'm sure you know Only made it out to Needles
To the wonder of my first love, the old folks tease Well that long black train got my baby and gone
When I bit off more than I could chew Can you feel it
me 'bout But through it all when there was doubt Must be weary
Referring to her only as my little friend I ate it up and spit it out Train train, comin' 'round, 'round the bend Oh so good... oh feel so good
I faced it all and I stood tall Train train, comin' 'round the bend
And did it my way

Cause there's , no room to rhumba in a sports car Sing choirs of angels Old MacDonald I remember the time at the old swimmin' hold
You can't move forward or back Sing in exaltation When I would have drowned beyond doubt
There's no room to do what the beat tells you to Oh sing all ye rivals But old Shep was right there
Without throwing your spine outta wack Of heaven above Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o To the rescue he came
Glory to God, Glory in the highest And on that farm he had some chicks, ee-i-ee-i-o He jumped in and then pulled me out
O come let us adore Him With a cluck, cluck here, a cluck, cluck there
When a little kiss I want to steal O come let us adore Him Loud as they could be
I hit my head against the steering wheel O come let us adore Him And when those chicks got out of line As the years fast did roll
Now I know the way a pretzel feels Christ the Lord Chicken fricasse Old Shep he grew old
All I can do is shout...Hey let me out!! With a cluck, cluck here, a cluck, cluck there His eyes were fast growing dim
Loud as they could be And one day the doctor looked at me and said
O Little Town of Bethlehem And when those chicks got out of line I can do no more for him Jim
Cause there's , no room to rhumba in a sports car Chicken fricasse
You can't move forward or back
There's no room to do what the beat tells you to Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee With hands that were trembling
Without throwing your spine outta wack lie Well, Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o I picked up my gun
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent And on that farm he had some cows, ee-i-ee-i-o And aimed it at Shep's faithful head
stars go by With a moo, moo here, a moo, moo there I just couldn't do it
What a way to waste a day with you Yet in thy dark streets shineth, the everlasting light Cattle everywhere I wanted to run
Nothing happens that can tell the truth The hopes and fears of all the years are met in And when those cows got out of line I wish they would shoot me instead
Let's go out and find a telephone booth thee tonight. Hamburger, medium rare
Yeah that's a better place, I like more space With a moo, moo here, a moo, moo there
Cattle everywhere He came to my side
For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above And when those cows got out of line And looked up at me
Cause there's , no room to rhumba in a sports car While mortals sleep the angels keep their watch of And laid his old head on my knee
You can't move forward or back Hamburger, medium rare
wondering love I had struck the best friend that a man ever had
There's no room to do what the beat tells you to Oh morning stars together, proclaim thy holy birth. I cried so I scarcely could see
Without throwing your spine outta wack And praises sing to God the king, and peace to Ohh, Well, Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
men on earth. And on that farm he had some pigs, ee-i-ee-i-o
With an oink, oink here, an oink, oink there Old Shep he has gone
Nothingville Where the good doggies go
Pigs everywhere in sight
Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee And when those pigs got out of line And no more with old Shep will I roam
Nothingville lie Pork and beans at night But if dogs have a heaven
Only just a two-bit town Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent With an oink, oink here, an oink, oink there There's one thing I know
Where nothing's real stars go by Pigs everywhere in sight Old Shep has a wonderful home
They treat me like a country clown Yet in thy dark streets shineth, the everlasting light And when those pigs got out of line
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in Pork and beans at night
thee tonight On a Snowy Christmas Night
Nothingville
I ain't gonna keep-a-hangin' round' Well I'm goona have a farm one day, ee-i-e-i-o Midnights prayers so softly whispered in
The doors keep slammin' in my face Oh How I Love Jesus And I'll do things McDonalds way, ee-i-e-i-o A Cathedral's candle light
People keep puttin' me in my place With a cluck, cluck here, a cluck, cluck there Bring the message of the holidays
Ohh oh oh oh A moo, moo here, a moo, moo there On a snowy Christmas night
When I am disgraced An oink, oink here, an oink, oink there
It's a rat's race at a snail's pace And I can promise you
Nothingville...Nothingville And I feel the gloom
God sends His angel If those animals ever get out of line Holly reeds and hidden mistletoe
To see Him my broom We'll have a mulligan stew Symbols of the seasons might
Joy bells are ringing How about you? Joyful faces everywhere you go
I'm satisfied On a snowy Christmas night
I know, I know that Jesus is mine Old Shep
O Come, All Ye Faithful Oh, how I love Jesus Give thanks for all you've been blessed with
Oh, how I love Jesus And hold your loved ones tight
O come, all ye faithful Oh, how I love Jesus When I was a lad For you know the Lord's been good to you
Joyful and triumphant To know that Jesus is mine And old Shep was a pup On a snowy Christmas night
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem Over hills and meadows we'd stray
Come and behold him Just a boy and his dog
Oh, how I love Jesus We were both full of fun Mother Nature wears a bridal gown
Born the king of angels Oh, how I love Jesus
O come let us adore Him We grew up together that way For the world is dressed in white
Oh, how I love Jesus There's a silent glow that fills the earth
O come let us adore Him To know that Jesus is mine
O come let us adore Him On a snowy Christmas night
Christ the Lord

Shake a hand if you can I said shake rattle and roll
Every time I see the sun rise Love has slipped away left us only friends I said shake, rattle and roll

And I see him everywhere Swishin' and a-swirlin', in their' silks and lace I'm like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood
Another love will find us store
In the mountains, in the valley Bracelets keep a-clinking, on their' tiny feet
Yes I know my God is there And with their tambourines they keep the beat Well I can look at you tell you ain't no child no
Oh, in time I look above me Some day when she's older, maybe she will more
See the stars that fill the sky understand I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
How could there be any question Why her mom and dad are not together Rings on their fingers, bells on their toes I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
Only God can reach that high The tears that she will cry when I have to say They make music, wherever they go 'Cause the harder I work the faster my money

All my love to you Just leave it to me I went over the hill, way down underneath
No one else will do Don't ever be ashamed I went over the hill, way down underneath
Sentimental me Just give me a chance Rings on their fingers, bells on their toes You make me roll my eyes

So don't pretend you don't know me Slowly but surely I'm gonna wear you down Close on the trail of the hare Some take just apple pie, some take just cake
Our names are carved on you, singing tree Slowly but surely I'm gonna bring you round How I long to be with them following the hounds I'll take the dish I please, please the dish I take
To my way of thinking, my way of kissing, my way a-huntin' again
of lovin' Gettin' me a big old grizzly bear
Oh singing tree Slowly but surely, I'm gonna make you mine Snowbird
Sing to me
Call your friend I'm just a Smokey mountain boy
The roving wind I ain't gonna rush ya', I'll let you meditate Come back to the hills I love Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
Maybe he can find my love Though I wanna crush ya' my arms will have to Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind The unborn grass lies waiting
And bring her back, singing tree wait And the deep blue sky above for its coat to turn to green
I'll just take it easy, so nice and easy, real cool The snowbird sings a song he always sings
really And speaks to me of flowers
Your leaves have turned from green to blue Slowly but surely, I'm gonna make you mine I traveled around and met lots of girls that will bloom again in spring
Sometimes I think you loved her too No matter how many I see
But since she left and our love died I left some pretty ones behind
You stand petrified, singing tree Oh yeah! Mm-mm, I've got a feelin' I'm not I know back home is where I'll find When I was young my heart was young then too
wasting my time The girl whose love is meant for me Anything that it would tell me,
Oh yeah! When you get the message it's going to that's the thing that I would do
Oh sing to me be fine But now I feel such emptiness within
Singing tree Slowly but surely, the table's gonna turn I'm just a Smokey mountain boy For the thing that I want most in life
Call your friend Slowly but surely, your lips are gonna burn Come back to the hills I love Is the thing I can't win
The roving wind For what you've been missin' is my kind of kissin', Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind
Maybe he can find my love my kind of lovin' And the deep blue sky above
And bring her back, singing tree Spread your tiny wings and fly away
Slowly but surely, I'm gonna make you mine And take the snow back with you
Smorgasbord Where it came from on that day
Oh sing to me Oh yeah! Mm-mm, I've got a feelin' I'm not The one I love forever is untrue
Singing tree wasting my time And if I could you know
Call your friend Some like their women short, some like them tall that I would fly away with you
Oh yeah! When you get the message it's going to I'll take them any size 'cause I love them all
The roving wind be fine
Maybe he can find my love Slowly but surely, the table's gonna turn The breeze along the river seems to say
Slowly but surely, your lips are gonna burn I'm just wild about smorgasbord That she'll only break my heart again
Slicin' Sand For what you've been missin' is my kind of kissin', I got a cravin' for smorgasbord should I decide to stay
my kind of lovin' A little kiss here, a little kiss there So little snowbird take me with you when you go
Slowly but surely, I'm gonna make you mine That's smorgasbord To that land of gentle breezes
Take off your shoes, put down your hair I'm gonna make you mine where the peaceful waters flow
Turn on the music and we'll get somewhere I'm gonna make you mine
Dance, dance, dance, til nose gets tan Mmm
We're gonna have us a ball on the beach Some take just apple pie, some take just cake So Close, Yet So Far (from Paradise)
a-slicin' sand Smokey Mountain Boy I'll take the dish I please, please the dish I take

So close, yet so far from paradise


Hug me a heap, swing me a lot I'm just a Smokey mountain boy I'm just wild about smorgasbord I hold, you in my arms, in paradise
We got a lot of ocean if it gets too hot Come back to the hills I love I got a cravin' for smorgasbord Is mine, then you slip away
O-o-o, o-o-o, baby, take my hand Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind A little kiss here, a little kiss there Like a child at play, and here am I
We'll have some real rockin' fun in the sun And the deep blue sky above That's smorgasbord So close, yet so far from paradise
a-slicin' sand
The closer and closer I get to home Mmm When you, are close to me, it's paradise
Come baby, come, let's dig some holes The more excited I am Some like just southern belles, they got a one We kiss, oh my love, paradise
You'll find it's heaven with sand on you soles Those were the mornings I'd roll out of bed track mind Is mine, then suddenly you're gone from me
Yeah! Start the day off with a hot corn bread I go for all the belles except the wedding kind Like a floating star, I see, and here am I
Smothered in huckleberry jam So close, yet so far from paradise

Slide through to the left, slide to the right I'm just wild about smorgasbord
Slash down the middle baby hold me tight I'm just a Smokey mountain boy I got a cravin' for smorgasbord I reach out for you, but each time I do
O-o-o, o-o-o, baby, hold my hand Come back to the hills I love A little kiss here, a little kiss there I always find you gone
We'll have some real rockin' fun in the sun Where the tops of pine all bend in the wind That's smorgasbord I know love is new, I'll take care of you
slicin' sand And the deep blue sky above In my arms is where you belong
Some like their women short, some like them tall
Slowly but Surely I can almost hear the hounds running through the I'll take them any size 'cause I love them all, Mmm

He walks beside you Now my life is something blue Push the throttle and burn the track
Just like He walks with me Sound Advice Curl and swirl like you doin' a dance
Speedway's comin' and now's your chance
I guess that I had better smile On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the
When we’re filled with despair Walking behind you down the aisle Some folks tell you what to do
They think they know more than you Speedway
Who gives me courage to go from there I feel I'm walking to my doom
And who gives me faith that will never die I'm really not the best man in this room They insist that they're givin' sound advice
Somebody bigger than you and I But as sure as you're livin' Stoke that pedal down to the floor
It ain't sound, it ain't nice As much as you give, crowd wants more
Something old, the dreams we planned It just doesn't sound like sound advice More, more, more, more, more on the Speedway
Something Something new, his wedding band On the Speedway
Something borrowed was the heart I gave you
You returned it torn in two Some folks like to be the boss
Something in the way she moves They get up on their high horse Take a spin, hit the brakes
Attracts me like no other lover Oh they say that you're gettin, sound advice A young little girl .. shivers and shakes
Something in the way she moves me Something old, the dreams we planned There one thing I'm bettin' On the Speedway
I don't want to leave her now Something new, his wedding band It ain't wise, it ain't nice Clear the way, comin' through
You know I believe and how Something borrowed was the heart I gave you You won't like the sound of their advice Kiss from your baby just pushin' you
You returned it torn in two On the Speedway
Somewhere in her smile she knows Sound advice we're given
All I gotta do is think of her And that's why, Just as sure as your as you're livin' Go for the money and lead the pack
Something in her style that shows me And that's why I'm something blue If your smart you'll think twice Push the throttle and burn the track
I don't want to leave her now When they start to sound off with advice Curl and swirl like you doin' a dance
You know I believe and how Speedway's comin' and now's your chance
Song of the Shrimp
Sound advice we're given On the Speedway, on the Speedway, on the
You're asking me will our love grow Just as sure as your as you're livin' Speedway
I don't know, I don't know I saw three shrimp in the water, two were old and If your smart you'll think twice
You stick around and it may show gray When they start to sound off with advice
I swam a little bit closer and .. I heard the third Stoke that pedal down to the floor
I don't know, I don't know Don't listen to their sound advice As much as you give, crowd wants more
one say
More, more, more, more, more on the Speedway

Spring Fever Ho!
Stay Away Hey!
A little bird, he told me so
He said come on, get on the go Startin' Tonight Steadfast, Loyal and True
Open your eyes the sky is full of butterflies Ten thousand miles even though I roam
The blossoms on the trees stir up the honey bees I can hear the call of the hills of home
Spring makes my fever right Michigan State, Comity The canyons high and the valleys low Farewell, Royal High School,
Harvard University Echo "How can you stay away" We'll remember you.
Vassa, Wilbur Smith and Brown Dear alma mater,
Spring fever, Spring is here at last Shakin' up this here town tonight We're steadfast, loyal, and true.
Spring fever, my heart's beating fast Startin' tonight My dreams are there where the eagle flies
Get up, get out spring is everywhere Have a ball do it all startin' tonight Where the mountain tops seem to touch the sky
The winding streams and the winds that blow As we go onward
Ask me "How can you stay away" In the lives we lead.
Well if you feel the wanderlust Grab your partner by the hand, Your light will guide us,
Just grab a car or hop a bus Spread a blanket on the sand Your motto is our creed.
In every town there's excitement to be found Three a.m. go for a swim Far too long have I stayed apart
So much is happening Clothes and all jump right in From this land that I love and divide my heart
Don't miss the joy of spring Tonight, startin' tonight Now, now I know I must go We will look back fondly
The world's in love just look around Let out the stops, call the cops, it's all right Where the hills say "Don't stay away" At your ivy walls,
Where the hills say "Don't stay away" Recalling precious moments
Within your hallowed halls.
Spring fever comes to everyone 'Course when the cops have come and gone
Spring fever, it's time for fun You'll just keep carrying on Stay Away Joe
Get up, get out spring is everywhere Don't you worry if you land in jail Farewell, Royal High School,
We'll forward your mail if you can't make bail Ho jump down, spin around, let's have a party We'll remember you.
Tonight, startin' tonight Look who's back, Stay Away Joe Dear alma mater,
Spring fever, it's Spring fever time Have a ball do it all startin' tonight We're steadfast, loyal, and true.
Spring fever, watch that fever climb Chock taw, chick a Shaw, gonna drink me hearty
Anything goes, everything goes, startin' tonight Welcome back, Stay Away Joe
Get up, get out spring is everywhere Startin' tonight.
Steamroller Blues

Spring is everywhere Stay Away Joe they call me


Starting Today Stay Away Joe oh yeah! I'm a steamroller baby
But if you need me call me I'm 'bout to roll all over you
Stand by Me Starting today Hoop and a holler and I'll be there I'm a steamroller baby
I'm teaching my heart Ho! I'm 'bout to roll all over you
When the storms of life are raging Not to ache anymore I'm gonna inject your soul
Stand by me Just 'cause we're apart Who keeps turnin' up like a bad penny With sweet rock'n'roll, poor heaven
When the storms of life are raging
