Cowboy Copas - Alabam - # ONE - ZZZ
Well I went to a turkey roast down the street
The people down there eat like wild geese;
I'm on my way, I'm goin' back to Alabam'.
Talk about yer people have a whale of a time
Eatin' up chicken' and drinkin' their wine;
I'm on my way, I'm goin' back to Alabam'.
Now some folks say a tramp won't steal
But I caught three in my corn field;
I'm on my way, I'm goin' back to Alabam'.
One had a bushel and the other had a peck
One had a roast'n' ear tied round his neck;
I'm on my way, I'm goin back to Alabam'.
There comes Sal walkin' down the street
With run down shoes tied to her feet;
Good Mornin', honey, stand over there, baby
Get over there, now.
Hello Sal, I know you
With a run down slipper and a tore up shoe;
I'm on my way, I'm goin' back to Alabam'.
When I get ready to leave this earth
I'm gonna look on my money's worth;
I'm on my way, I'm goin' back to Alabam'.
I'm goin back to Alabam'!

Louvin Brothers - Alabama - ZZZ
Alabama, your beautiful sunlight
Your fields of cericea, potatoes and corn
Alabama, your crimson red clover
All mingled around the old place I was born

Alabama, your hills and your valleys
Your creeks sing with laughter as onward they flow
Alabama, so sweet in the springtime
Sweet ferns and wildflowers end winter with snow

Alabama, so sweet to my mem'ry
You shine like a light on a beautiful hill
Alabama, in days of my childhood
I labored and toiled at the old sorghum mill

Alabama, when red leaves are falling
I roam through your pastures with fences of rail
Alabama, when 'possums are crawling
And hound dogs are howling and wagging their tails

Alabama, your beautiful highways
Are carved through the mountains where loved ones do wait
Alabama, your goldenrod flowers
The welcome home sign hanging over your gate

Alabama, to me you are calling
My footsteps are halted, no longer to, stray
Alabama, you hold all I long for
You hold all I love, so I'm coming today.

Roy Acuff - An Old Three Room Shack - ZZZ
Now I was the youngest of thirteen kids
Growing up in a little country town
Never had much to eat and the first thing I could speak
Was patch it up and hand it down
Daddy hauled fill for a textile mill
Drank up what little money he made
We had a three room shack with a john out back
Only had paper when daddy got paid
Now somehow I growed up, a really fat kid
Though I never had enough to eat
Them old rich kids would laugh and beat on me
And their dogs would run me up and down the street
Yeah, they'd bite my ankles and tear my clothes
They all had fun with me
And as I got fatter, them dogs got badder
Things were 'bout as bad as they could be
Now, I'd always wanted me a puppy
But daddy said They ain't no way
Ain't near enough food to feed our brood
And we ain't got none to give away
Then one night, drunk, in a poker game
He won old Bill Teeter's hog
I kinda liked that Poland China
So I raised him like a dog
Them old rich kids all had puppies
But I never had no dog
It was always me and Bill Bill
The old fat boy and his hog
Now old Bill Bill'd foller me to school every day
And then waller outside and wait
And I used to take him fishin'
But he et up all the bait
And he wasn't no good at hunting, either
Cause everything I shot, he ate
He was so dadburned slow that everywhere we'd go
We always got there late
But all of my troubles, they ended one day
After Bill Bill got full growed
Them old rich kids waited for us after school
And jumped us when we come down the road
Well when the dust had settled and the fur stopped flying
Old Bill Bill grinned at me
'Cause howling rich kids and screamin' dogs
Was all that you could see
Well they must have learned a good lesson
They never bothered us after that day
Them old rich kids called us the two-ton terrors
And stayed out of our way
Yeah they all went off to fancy schools
The town got kind of dry of dogs
It was only me and Bill Bill
The old fat boy and his hog
Them old rich kids all had puppies
But I never had no dog
It was always me and Bill Bill
The old fat boy and his hog
Now that was all many years ago
And old Bill Bill's a long time gone
But things are a whole lot different now
'Bout the best I've ever known
Y'see Bill Bill got a little lonesome
Brought him a lady friend home one day
Now I got ten thousand, eight hundred and seventy two hogs
And several more on the way
Got me a thirteen thousand dollar pickup truck
I'm makin money so dad blamed fast
And I married me a fine southern lady
And she's teachin me a little class
And we just had a little baby boy
About as round as he is tall
And I reckon I'll call him Bill Bill
If he's got any guts at all
Them old rich kids all had puppies
But I never had no dog
It was always me and Bill Bill
The old fat boy and his hog

Blue Sky Boys - Are You From Dixie - ZZZ

Hello stranger, how do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you
You seem surprised, I recognize
I'm no detective but it just reminds

You're from a place I'm longing to be
Your smilin' face seems to say to me
You're from my own land, my sunny homeland
Tell me can it be

Are you from Dixie? I say, from Dixie?
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you?
And those friends I'm longing to see?

Are you from Alabama, Tennessee, or Caroline?
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line
Are you from Dixie, I say from Dixie?
'Cause I'm from Dixie too

It was 'way back in old eighty nine
When first I crossed that Mason Dixon Line
Gee but I've yearned, longed to return
To all those good old folks I left behind

My home is way down in old Alabam'
On a plantation near Birmingham
And there's one thing certain, I'm surely flirtin'
With those southbound trains

Are you from Dixie? I say, from Dixie?
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you?
And those friends I'm longing to see?

Are you from Alabama, Tennessee, or Caroline?
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line
Are you from Dixie, I say from Dixie?
'Cause I'm from Dixie too

John DenverBack Home Again - # ONE - ZZZ1975 CMA Song of the Year

There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in
The afternoon is heavy on your shoulders
There's a truck out on the four lane, a mile or more away
The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder
He's an hour away from ridin' on your prayers up in the sky
And ten days on the road are barely gone
There's a fire softly burning; supper's on the stove
But it's the light in your eyes that makes him warm.
Hey, it's good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again
There's all the news to tell him, how did you spend your time?
And what's the latest thing the neighbors say
And your mother called last friday, sunshine made her cry
And you felt the baby move just yesterday
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again, yes it is
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again
And oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down
And feel your fingers feather soft on me
The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way
The happiness that livin' with you brings me
It's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you
It's the little things that make a house a home
Like a fire softly burning and supper on the stove
The light in your eyes that makes me warm
Hey, it's good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again
Hey, it's good to be back home again, you know it is
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Hey it's good to be back home again
I said hey it's good to be back home again

Roy Acuff - Back in the Country - ZZZ

When was the last time // You got up before the sun
And watched while the night and day // Melted into one?
When was the last time // You really looked at rain
Dripping down the gutter // Splashing on the window-pane?
My fondest memories // Are tied around these things
Sunday school, bedtime rules // Grandma's squeaky swing
Sneaking out behind the barn // My love would meet me there
Tripping in the hallway // Over Grandpa's rocking chair
Back in the country // Now I know you're gonna say
Back in the country // Don't you wish that you had stayed
Back in the country // Where the roses still grow wild
Back in the country // Where you walked those country miles
When was the last time // You saw sundown through a tree
Sitting on the front porch // In a cool evenin' breeze
When was the last time // That you heard a Bobwhite song
When was the last time // I'll bet it's been too long
Back in the country // Now I know you're gonna say
Back in the country // Don't you wish that you had stayed
Back in the country // Where the roses still grow wild
Back in the country // Where you walked those country miles

Flatt & Scruggs - Cabin On The Hill - 1959
There's a happy childhood home in the memory I can see
Standing out upon the hill 'neath the shadow of the tree
If I only had my way, it would give my heart a thrill
Just to simply wander back to the cabin on the hill

Oh, I want to wander back to the cabin on the hill
'Neath the shadow of the tree, I would like to linger still
Just to be with those who love, joy my heart would
overfill And I want to wander back to the cabin on the hill

But the saddest of it all, I can never more return
To that happy childhood home, matters not how much I yearn
If I only had my way, it would give my heart a thrill
Just to simply wander back to the cabin on the hill.

Zac Brown Band - Chicken Fried - # ONE - 2008
You know I like my chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio on
Well I was raised underneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that's home you know
Sweet tea pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow
And my house it's not much to talk about
But it's filled with love that's grown in southern ground
And a little bit of chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love
It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I've come to know
So if you agree have a drink with me
Raise you glasses for a toast
To a little bit of chicken fried
And cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love
I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love
Like our chicken fried
And cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love
Getcha a little chicken fried
And cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of my precious child
And know a mother's love

Loretta Lynn - Coal Miner's Daughter - # ONE - 1970
I was born a coal miner's daughter
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were born poor, but we had love
That's the one thing that daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar

My daddy worked all night in the Vanleer coal mine
All day long in the field a-hoein' corn
Mommie rocked the babies at night
And read the Bible by the coal oil light
And everything would start all over come break of mom

Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay
Mommie scrubbed our clothes on a washboard every day
I've seen her fingers bleed To complain there was no need
She'd smile in mommie's understanding way

In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
From a mail order catalog Money made from selling a hog
Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere

I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
I remember well the well where I drew water
The work we done was hard
At night we'd sleep 'cause we worked hard
I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler

A lot of things have changed since way back then
And it's so good to be back home again
Not much left but the floor
Nothing lives here anymore
Except the mem'ries of a coal miner's daughter.

Roy Acuff - Country Home Folk - ZZZ
Fifty miles of a distance I've travelled by car.
From the Town Of Belmullet to old Castlebar.
From Bangor to, ,,, ,, sure the time was me own
'Till at last I arrived in the old country home
I arrived there one morning the hour it was late.
I was kindly admitted by a gent at the gate.
He asked me some questions and rang on the phone.
To get me a bed in the old country home.
The bed being secure I then took off me hat.
I took off me clothes and then jumped in the bath.
The water was warm and the suds they did foam.
You must be perfectly clean in the old country home.
Every tuesday and Thursday the barber comes in,
With razor as sharp as a bookmakers pen.
He'll shave you and scrub you right into the bone.
You must be perfectly clean in the old country home.
Me tempiture was taken written down on the chart.
Every tick every moan every beat of me heart.
When the doctors come in sure the patients do roam.
For fear they might die in the old country home.
Fifty miles of a distance by road and by car
From the Town Of Belmullet to old Castlebar
Through Ballycry and Mulranny, the time is me own.
I've setteled here now in me old country home.
I'm as happy as Larry in me old country home
Fifty miles of a distance I've travelled by car.
From the Town Of Belmullet to old Castlebar.
From Bangor to, ,,, ,, sure the time was me own
'Till at last I arrived in the old country home

Tom T Hall - Country Is - # ONE - 1974
Country is sittin' on the back porch listen to the whippoorwills late in the day
Country is mindin' your business helpin' a stranger if he comes your way
Country is livin' in the city knowin' your people knowin' your kind
Country is what you make it country is all in your mind
Country is workin' for a living thinkin' your own thoughts lovin' your town
Country is teachin' your children find out what's right and stand your ground
Country is a havin' the good times listen to the music singing your part
Country is walkin' in the moonlight country is all in your heart

Mel McDaniel - Countryfied - 1981
Lookin' at the frog he ate up my fishbite
Sittin' on the bank of the riverside
Took a little drink from a jug of moonshine
Didn't have a chaser and almost died

Thinkin' 'bout workin' on Monday mornin'
Never can wait till quittin' time
Just to git down to the water
And to wet my fish in line

Well, I'm countryfied I like my chicken fried
Walk barefootin' through the country side
Well, I'm country folk I like to roll my smokes
I love to hear a fiddle playin' the Cotton Eyed Joe

Never been much on conversation and say I'm hell when I get tight
Love to git out my old coondog and shine up a few at night
Like to sit around a campfire and hear old bluebird work
Runnin' them cage of critters while everything is worth

Well, I'm countryfied I like my chicken fried
Walk barefootin' through the country side
Well, I'm country folk I like to roll my smokes
I love to hear a fiddle playin' the Cotton Eyed Joe

I like to sit down with my woman watch TV at the suppertime
Snuggle we'll close together 'cause she knows how to ease my mind
Talk about days when we were younger think about day when we get old
Like the lazy days of summer we like to watch the fallin' snow

Well, I'm countryfied I like my chicken fried
Walk barefootin' through the country side
Well, I'm country folk I like to roll my smokes
I love to hear a fiddle playin' the Cotton Eyed Joe

Bobby Bare - Detroit City - 1963
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
And I dreamed about the cotton fields and home
I dreamed about my mother, dear old papa, sister and brother
And I dreamed about the girl who's been waiting for so long

I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home

Home folks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm just fine, yes they do
But by day I make the cars and by night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines

Because you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I've just been wastin' my time
You know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna take my foolish pride
Get it on a southbound freight and let it ride
I'm gonna go back to the loved ones
The ones I left waiting so far behind

I want to go home, yeah
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home (Can't you hear me?)
I want to go home
Whoa, baby I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home (Somebody help me)

Hank Williams Jr - Dixie On My Mind - # ONE - 1981
All the stations up here they don't sign off with Dixie
The way they did in sweet home Alabam'
And the people here don't sip Jack Daniels whiskey
The way they do in the Tennessee mountain land
I'd always heard lots about the big apple
So I thought I'd come up here and see
But all I've seen so far is one big hassle
Wish I was camped out on the Okeechobee
If this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand,
And I'm headed back below that Dixie line
No I just don't fit in, and I'll never come back again
But I'm busted here an' I got Dixie on my mind
Oh I'm stuck up here an' I got Dixie on my mind
(Yee-ha)
These people never smile or say a word
They're all too busy tryin' to make an extra dime
Oh I'd love to haul 'em all down around Spartanburg
And show 'em how to raise hell in Carolin'
Oh the things you know that I miss most of all
Is the freedom of the rivers and the pines
They don't do much huntin' and fishin' up here ya know
But I have met a few squirrels and one porcupine
Well if this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
Wish I was down in Houston town tonight
No I just don't fit in, and I'll never come back again
But I'm busted here an' I got Dixie on my mind
Oh I'm stuck up here an' got Dixie on my mind

Alabama - Down Home - # ONE - 1991
Just off of the beaten path
A little dot on the state road map
That's where I was born and where I'll die
Things move at a slower pace
Nobody's in a rat race
And these days that's a special way of life
Down Home
Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home
A mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know
If they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up down home
In the corner of the hardware store
Gathered round on a checkered board
Old men telling lies and crownin' kings
Kids drivin' round the old town square
Cops roll down int he cool night air
Go and see what's shakin' at the Dairy Queen
Down Home
Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home
A mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know
If they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up down home
When I was a boy I couldn't wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised
Down Home
Down Home
Folks know
If there fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up
Down Home
Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home
A mans good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know
If they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up
Down Home
Down Home
Way down home
Down home
Down Home
Way down home

Grandpa Jones - Eight More Miles To Louisville - ZZZ
I've. traveled o'er this country wide, seeking fortune fair
Up and down the two coast lines, I've traveled everywhere From Portland East to Portland West and back across the line
I'm going now to the place that's best, that old home town of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view Eight more miles on this old road, I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd return, I knew it from the start Eight more miles to Louisville, the home town of my heart

There's bound to be a girl somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives out in Louisville, she's long and she's tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a-ramblin' through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

I can picture in my mind a place that we'll call home
A humble little house for two, we never more will roam
A place that's right for that love sight is in those bluegrass hills
There gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville.

Willie Nelson - Georgia On My Mind - # ONE - 1978
Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through.
An' just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Georgia, Georgia, a song of you,
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.
Other arms reach out to me;
Other eyes smile tenderly.
Still in peaceful dreams I see,
The road leads back to you.
Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.
On my mind.

Porter Wagoner - Green Green Grass Of Home - ZZZ
The old home town looks the same, as I step down from the train
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
Down the road I look and there runs Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

The old house is still standing, though the paint is cracked and dry
And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

Yes, they'll all come to meet me, in the shade of that old oak tree
As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass of home.
When I awake and look around me at four grey walls that surround me
I realize that 1 was only dreaming
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre, arm in am we'll walk at day break
Again I'll touch the green, green grass of home.

Alabama - High Cotton - # ONE - 1989
We didn't know the times were lean,
round our house the grass was green,
it didn't seem like things were all that bad,
I bet we walked a thousand miles,
choppin' cotton and pusing plows,
and learnin' how to give it all we had.
As life went on and years went by,
i saw the light in daddy's eye,
and felt the love in mamma's hands,
they kept us warm and kept us fed,
taught us how to look ahead,
now lookin' back i understand.
We were walkin' in high cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
those fertile fields are never far away,
we were walkin' in high cotton,
old time there are not forgotten,
leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.
(band solo)
When sunday mornings rolled around,
we dressed up hand-me-downs,
just in time to gather with the church,
some times i think how long it's been,
and how it impressed me then,
it was the only day my daddy wouldn't work.
We were walkin' in high cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
those fertile fields are never far away,
we were walkin' in high cotton,
old time there are not forgotten,
leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.
We were walkin' in high cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
those fertile fields are never far away,
we were walkin' in high cotton,
old time there are not forgotten,
leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.
We were walkin' in high cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
those fertile fields are never far away,
we were walkin' in high cotton,
old time there are not forgotten,
leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.
Walkin' in high cotton

Joe Diffie - Home - # ONE - 1990
The only thing I see ahead
Is just the heat rising off the road.
The rainbows I've been chasing keep
On fading 'fore I find my pot of gold.
And more and more I'm thinking that
The only treasures that I'll ever know
Are long ago and far behind
Wrapped up in my memories of home.
Home was a swimming hole
And a fishing pole
And the feel of a muddy road
Between my toes.
Home was a back porch swing
Where I would sit
And mama'd sing 'Amazing Grace'
While she hung out the clothes.
Home was an easy chair
With my daddy there
And the smell of
Sunday supper on the stove.
My footsteps carry me away
But in my mind I'm always going home.
Now the miles I put behind me
Ain't as hard as the miles
That lay ahead.
It's way too late to listen
To the words of wisdom
That my daddy said.
The straight and narrow path
He showed me
Turned into a thousand winding roads.
My footsteps carry me away
But in my mind I'm always going home.
Home was a swimming hole
And a fishing pole
And the feel of a muddy road
Between my toes.
Home was a back porch swing
Where I would sit
And mama'd sing 'Amazing Grace'
While she hung out the clothes.
Home was an easy chair
With my daddy there
And the smell of
Sunday supper on the stove.
My footsteps carry me away
But in my mind I'm always going home.
The straight and narrow path
He showed me
Turned into a thousand winding roads.
My footsteps carry me away
But in my mind I'm always going home.

Tom T Hall - Homecoming - 1969
I guess I should have written, dad, to let you know that I was comin' home
I've been gone so many years, I didn't realize you had a phone
I saw your cattle coming in; boy, they're looking mighty fat and slick
I saw Fred at the service station, told me that his wife was awful sick

You heard my record on the radio, oh well, it's just another song
But I've got a hit recorded, it'll be out on the market 'fore too long
I got this ring in Mexico, and no, it didn't cost me quite a bunch
When you're in the business that I'm in, people call it puttin' up a front

I know I've lost a little weight, and I guess I am looking kinda pale
If you didn't know me better, dad, you'd think that I'd just gotten out of jail
No, we don't ever call them beer joints; night clubs are the places where I work
You meet a lot of people there, but no, there ain't no chance of gettin' hurt

I'm sorry that I couldn't be here with you all when mama passed away
I was on the road, and when they came and told me, it was just too late
I drove by the grave to see her; boy, that really is a pretty stone
I'm glad that Fred and Jan are here; it's better than you bein' here alone

I knew you're gonna ask me who the lady is that's sleeping in the car
That's just a girl who works for me, and man, she plays a pretty mean guitar
We worked in San Antone last night; she didn't even have the time to dress
She drove me down from Nashville and, to tell the truth, I guess she needs the rest

Well, dad I gotta go; we got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight
Let me take your number down; I'll call you, and I promise you I'll write
Now you be good, and don't be chasin' all those pretty women that you know
And, by the way, if you see Barbara Walker, tell her that I said hello.

Herb Henson - How Come Y'all Come - ZZZ
Tracy Lawrence - If The World Had A Front Porch - 1995
It was where my mama sat on that old swing with her crochet
It was where granddaddy taught me how to cuss and how to pray
It was where we made our own ice cream those sultry summer nights
Where the bulldog had her puppies, and us brothers had our fights
There were many nights I'd sit right there and look out at the stars
To the sound of a distant whippoorwill or the hum of a passing car
It was where I first got up the nerve to steal me my first kiss
And it was where I learned to play guitar and pray I had the gift
If the world had a front porch like we did back then
We'd still have our problems but we'd all be friends
Treating your neighbor like he's your next of kin
Wouldn't be gone with the wind
If the world had a front porch, like we did back then
Purple hulls and pintos, I've shelled more than my share
As lightening bugs and crickets danced in the evening air
And like a beacon that old yellow bulb, it always led me home
Somehow mama always knew just when to leave it on
If the world had a front porch like we did back then
We'd still have our problems but we'd all be friends
Treating your neighbor like he's your next of kin
Wouldn't be gone with the wind
If the world had a front porch, like we did back then
Treating your neighbor like he's your next of kin
Wouldn't be gone with the wind
If the world had a front porch, like we did back then

Dolly Parton - In The Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad) - 1968
We'd get up before sunup to get the work done up
We'd work in the fields till the sun had gone down
We've stood and we've cried as we helplessly watched
A hailstorm a beatin' our crops to the ground
We've gone to bed hungry many nights in the past
In the good old days when times were bad

No amount of money could buy from me
The mem'ries that I have of them
No amount of money could pay me
To go back and live through it again
In the good old days when times were bad

I've seen daddy's hands break open and bleed
And I've seen him work till he's stiff as a board
I've seen mama lay and suffer in sickness
In need of a doctor we couldn't afford
Anything at all was more than we had
In the good old days when times were bad

We've got up before we found ice on the floor
Where the wind would blew snow through the cracks in the wall
I've walked many miles to an old country school
With my lunch in a bag of my overalls
Anything at all was more than we had
In the good old days when times were bad

No amount of money could buy from me..

In the good old days when times were bad
In the good old days when times were bad

Karl & Harty - Kentucky - ZZZ
Kentucky, you are the dearest land outside of heaven to me
Kentucky, your laurel and your redbud trees
When I die, I want to rest upon a graceful mountain so high
For that is where God will look for me

Kentucky, I miss the songs they're singing in the silvery moonlight
Kentucky, I miss the hound dogs chasing 'coons
I know that my mother, dad and sweetheart are there waiting for me
Kentucky, I'll be returning soon.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Long Hard Road (The Sharecropper's Dream) - # ONE - 1984
Way back in my memory there's a scene that I recall
Of a little run-down cabin in the woods

Where my dad never promised that our blue moon would turn gold
But he laid awake nights wishin' that it would
When the world was on our radio, hard work was on our minds
We lived our day-to-day in plain dirt fashion
With ol' overalls and cotton balls all strapped across your back
Man, it's hard to make believe there ain't nothing wrong

But mama kept the Bible read, and daddy kept our family fed
And somewhere in between I must have grown
'Cause someday I was dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
Takes me down the road to where I want to go
Now I know it's a long, hard road
Sometimes, I remember when I stay up late at night

When the sun up came, we got up and went
In the shadows of a working day, our moonlight hours spent
Singin' songs along with grandma's radio
Now I'm beatin' down a ol' blacktop road, sleepin' in a sack
Livin' in my memories all in vain
'Cause those city lights ain't all that bright, compared to what it's like

To see lightning bugs go dancin' in the rain
Mama played the guitar then, and daddy made the saw blade bend
And raindrops played the tin roof like a drum
But I just kept on dreamin' that a song that I was singin'
Takes me down the road to where my name is known
Now I'm gone, and it's a long, hard road

Yes, I know, it's a long, hard road

Pinetoppers - Mockin' Bird Hill - 1951
When the sun in the mornin' peeps over the hill
And kisses the roses 'round my window sill
Then my heart fills with gladness when I hear the trill
Of the birds in the tree-tops on Mockin' Bird Hill

Tra-la la twit-tle dee dee dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the mornin' to the mockin' bird's trill
Tra-la la twit-tle dee dee dee, there's peace and good will You're welcome as the flowers on Mockin' Bird Hill

Got a three-cornered plow and an acre to till
And a mule that 1 bought for a ten-dollar bill
There's a tumble-down shack and a rusty ol' mill
But it's my home sweet home up on Mockin' Bird Hill

When it's late in the evening, I climb tip the hill
And survey all my kingdom while ev'rything's still
Only me and the sky and an ol' whippoorwill
Singin' songs in the twilight on Mockin' Bird Hill.

Lefty Frizzell - Mom And Dad's Waltz - 1951
I'd walk for miles
Cry or smile
For my mama and daddy
I want them I want them to know

How I feel
My love is real
For my mama and daddy
I want them to know I love them so

In my heart for joy tears start
'Cause I'm happy
And I pray every day
For mom and pappy
And each night
I'd walk for miles
Cry or smile
For my mama and daddy
I want them to know I love them so

I'd fight in wars
Do all the chores
For my mama and daddy
I want them to live on Till they're called

I'd work and slave
And never rave
To my mama and daddy
Because I know I owe them my all.

Louise Massey & The Westerners - My Adobe Hacienda - ZZZ
In my adobe hacienda
There's a touch of mexico
Cactus lovelier than orchids
Blooming in the patio
(soft desert stars
And the strum of guitars)
Makes every evening seem so sweet
In my adobe hacienda
Life and love are more complete
In my adobe hacienda
Nested in the western hills
Evening breezes softly murmur
Harmony with whippoorwills
(when setting sun says
The long day is done)
Sweet music starts to fill the air
In my adobe hacienda
Harmony is everywhere

To night my heart is lonely for the folks back home
Where I left my mother and daddy all alone
There's been a lot of changes since I been around
I'd like to wander back to the old home town

You'll never miss the home folks until you've gone away
Then you'll need a friend to help you every day
Then you'll call on mother but she won't be around
I'd like to wander back to the old home town

I've searched this whole world over since I've been around
I've never found a place just like the old home town
If I could live life over I'd never roam around
I'd like to wander back to the old home day

Mel McDaniel - Out Of The Question - ZZZ
Brooks & Dunn - Red Dirt Road - # ONE - 2003
I was raised off of Rural Route 3
Out past where the blacktop ends
We'd walk to church on Sunday morning
Race barefoot back to Johnson's fence
That's where I first saw Mary
On that roadside picking blackberries
That summer I turned a corner in my soul
Down that red dirt road
It's where I drank my first beer
It's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car,
I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven
Is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth
Ain't just for high achievers
I've learned,
I've come to know
There's life at both ends
Of that red dirt road
Her daddy didn't like me much
In my shackled up GTO
I'd sneak out in the middle of the night
Throw rocks at her bedroom window
We'd turn out the headlights
Drive by the moonlight
Talk about what the future might hold
Down that red dirt road
It's where I drank my first beer
It's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car,
I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven
Is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth
Ain't just for high achievers
I've learned,
I've come to know
There's life at both ends
Of that red dirt road
I went out into the world
And I came back in
I lost Mary,
Oh I got her back again
And driving home tonight,
Feels like I've found a long lost friend
It's where I drank my first beer
It's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car,
I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven
Is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth
Ain't just for high achievers
I've learned,
I've come to know
There's life at both ends
Of that red dirt road

Someday when I grow up
I'm gonna put away these dreams
And stop believing in foolish things
I'll get my feet on the ground, stop shootin' for the moon
I hope I don't grow up any time soon
Yea, someday when I grow up

It won't all be about fun
That honeydew list will finally get done
I'll start watchin' more news and less cartoons
Well, I hope I don't grow up any time soon
Garage full of toys and still I want something new
That's just the boy in the man coming through

It's a serious job raising this family
Two little kids, well, three counting me
Someday when I grow up
I'm gonna really watch my will
And I'll eat more salad and a lot less cake
I'll sing all serious songs and not these silly tunes

Well, I hope I don't grow up any time soon
Garage full of toys and still I want something new
That's just the boy in the man coming through
It's a serious job raising this family
Two little kids, well, three counting me
I'll empty my pockets before my bibs get washed

Ask for directions before we get lost
I'll stop believing we can be the next Johnny and June
Well, I hope I don't grow up any time soon
Yea, I hope I don't grow up any time soon

Alabama - Song Of The South - # ONE - 1989
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone by the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich

Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat
They ought to get a rich man to vote like that
Sing it
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone by the wind

There ain't nobody looking back again
Well somebody told us Wall Street fell
But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all
Well momma got sick and daddy got down

The county got the farm and they moved to town
Papa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet
Sing it
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth

Gone, gone by the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Play it
Sing it
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth

Gone, gone by the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Song, song of the south
Gone, gone with the wind
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Sing it
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone by the wind

Ain't nobody looking back again
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone by the wind
Ain't nobody looking back again
Song, song of the south

Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth

Mel Tillis - Southern Rain - # ONE - 1981
Sometimes my soul gets weary and my mind begins to wonder
And like that old train 'The Hummingbird' it goes to Alabama
They say home is where the heart is and mine is down in Dixie
And when you go down to Dixie you're heading for higher ground
Blowing from the coast of Mississippi
(Southern rain)
I fell better when those southern waters hit me
I can't get into Jordan seven times to easy the pain
But I can pray for help and hope for southern rain
Like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain)
They can wash away your cares if you let them
You may not believe my story and you may think I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains
Austick is a peeling that a body can't get over
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with time
When were young we want to get away when we're old we want to go back
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind
Blowing from the coast of Mississippi
(Southern rain)
I fell better when those southern waters hit me
I can't get into Jordan seven times to easy the pain
But I can pray for help and hope for southern rain
Like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain)
They can wash away your cares if you let them
You may not believe my story and you may think I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Alabama - Southern Star - # ONE - 1990
Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
Well I'm blue-collar branded, and stuck in a mill
Hard work is a way of life for me

Well I'm too young to live like I'm over the hills
And too old to be wild and free.
My heart is onward bound.
I'm rolling with the feeling and I can't slow down
I need a guiding light.
Shining down to lead me through the night

Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home.
Oh, hey my D.J. friend, would you play me one more song
And let my mind just go and drift away
Now we all have a dream... and a place where we belong
Somewhere we can go and escape.

My heart is onward bound.
I'm rolling with the feeling and I can't slow down
...I need a guiding light.
Shining down to lead me throught the night
Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home.

Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home...

Linda Parker - Take Me Back To Renfro Valley - ZZZ
I was born in Renfro Valley
But I drifted far away
I've been back to see the old home
And my friends of other days
Gone were old familiar faces
All the friends I used to know
Things have changed in Renfro Valley
Since the days of long ago

Others own the old plantation
I can call it home no more
Other forms are at the fireside
Other children 'round the door
Other voices sing the old songs
When the evening sun is low
Mother sang in Renfro Valley
In the days of long ago

Take me back to Renfro Valley
When I'm free from earthly care
Lay me down by dad and mother
Let me sleep forever there
When it's springtime in the mountains
And the dogwood blossoms blow
I'll be back in Renfro Valley
As in the days of long ago.

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like the breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

All my mem'ries gather 'round her
Finest lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye

I hear her voice in the morning as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road, I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

Dolly Parton - Tennessee Homesick Blues - # ONE - 1984
New York City ain't no kind of place
For a country girl with a friendly face
If you smile people look at you funny
They take it wrong
The greenest state in the land of the free
And the home of the grand ole Opry
Is calling me back to my smoky mountain home

I wish I had my old fishin' pole
And was sitting on the banks of the fishing hole
Eating green apples and waiting for the fish to bite
Life ain't as simple as it used to be
Since the big apple took a bite out of me
And lord I'm so Tennessee homesick that I could die

But I ain't been home in I don't know when
If I had it all to do over again
Tonight I'd sleep in my old feather bed
What I wouldn't give for a little bitty taste
Of mama's homemade chocolate cake
Tennessee homesick blues running through my head
Mama you can fluff my feather bed
Just as soon as I can I'm gonna head
Back to the Tennessee hills and it better be soon
Daddy you can load the rifles up
We're gonna load them dogs on the pickup truck
And take off to Calhoun Country and catch us a coon

But I ain't been home in I don't know when..

Eatin' grits and gravy and country ham
Go to church on Sunday with dinner on the grounds
Tennessee homesick blues are runnin' through my head

But I ain't been home in I don't know when..

Good lord have mercy on a country girl
Tryin' to make a living in a rhinestone world
It's hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world
With Tennessee homesick blues runnin' through my head
I've got those Tennessee homesick blues runnin' through my head
Tennessee homesick blues

Red Foley - Tennessee Saturday Night - # ONE
- 1949
Now, listen while I tell you about a place I know
Down in Tennessee where the tall corn grows
Hidden from the world in a bunch of pines
Where the moon's a little bashful and it seldom shines
Civilized people live there all right
But they all go native on Saturday Night
Oh, well the music is a fiddle and a cracked guitar
They get their kicks from an old fruit jar
They do the boogie to an old square dance
The woods are full of couples looking for romance
Somebody takes a brogan and knocks out the light
Yes, they all go native on Saturday night
When they really get together there's a lot of fun
They all know the other fellow packs a gun
Everybody does his best to act just right
Cause there's gonna be funeral if you start a fight
They struggle and they shuffle till broad daylight
Yes, they all go native on Saturday night.
Well, now you've heard my story about a place I know
Down in Tennessee where the tall corn grows
Hidden from the world in a bunch of pines
Where the moon's a little bashful and it seldom shines
Civilized people live there all right
But they all go native on Saturday Night

Roy Acuff - That's Country - ZZZ
Straight out of Nashville, here's your next big star
He don't write the songs he sings, but he knows the words by heart.
Wears a cowboy hat, and some tight blue jeans,
And he struts around the stage like he's the coolest thing you've ever seen.
Oh you gotta love him!
He looks like a super model, knows how to strike a pose
And he don't mind the makeup, as long as no one knows.
And he's got that crooked grin, and talks with a southern drawl,
Acts like Toby Keith, but sounds a lot like Tim McGraw
But if he's country I'll kiss your ass,
And throw all my Willie Nelson records in the trash.
He's the same old shit in a slightly different bag,
But if he's country, well then country's pretty bad.
I don't watch CMT
Naw that shit makes me sick.
And that ole Kenny Chesney,
What a hypocrite.
He'll swear he's country,
But he lives in the Caribbean.
Sings all about the islands now,
What happened to the Tennessean
Aw if he's country ill kiss your ass
Throw all my Johnny Cash records in the trash
He's all about image cuz image pays the bucks,
Aw but if he's country, well then country really sucks.
What happened to the outlaws,
Who weren't afraid to cross the line.
What happened to the workin' man,
Who sang the truth about their troubled lives.
I was raised in Georgia, in a one red light town.
And my daddy picked guitar in every honky tonk around.
And he taught me all the good stuff,
That solid country gold, but now I love it all from hip-hop to rock and roll
And to thank country, well I don't give a damn
My daddy taught me to be own kinda man
He said Son you don't have to go along with the crow
So if I ain't country then I'm pretty frickin proud
Oh Well I don't need their labels anyhow

Rodney Atkins - These Are My People - # ONE - 2007
Well, we grew up down by the railroad tracks, shootin' bibis at old beer cans
Chokin' on the smoke from a Lucky Strike somebody lifted off his old man
We were football flunkies, southern rock junkies, crankin' up the stereos
Singing loud and proud to Gimmie Three Steps, Simple Man, and Curtis Low
We were big, ya know
Got some discount knowledge at the Jr. College where we majored in beer and girls
It was all real funny till we ran out of money and they threw us out into the world
Yeah, the kids that thought they'd run this town ain't a-runnin' much of anything
Just lovin' and laughin' and bustin' our asses, and we all call it all livin' the dream
But these are my people, this is where I come from
We're givin' this life everything we got and then some
It ain't always pretty, but it's real
It's the way we were made, wouldn't have it any other way
These are my people
Well, we take it all week on the chin with a grin till we make it to Friday night
And it's church league softball, holler 'bout a bad call, preacher breaking up the fight
Then later on at the Green Light tavern, well, everybody's gatherin' as friends
And the beer's a pourin' till Monday mornin', and we start it all over again
And these are my people, this is where I come from
We're givin' this life everything we got and then some
It ain't always pretty, but it's real
It's the way we were made, wouldn't have it any other way
These are my people
We fall down, and we get up
We walk proud, and we talk tough
We got heart, and we got nerve
Even if we are a bit disturbed
Woo, come on
These are my people, this is where I come from
We're givin' this life everything we got and then some
It ain't always pretty, but it's real
It's the way we were made, wouldn't have it any other way, ah naw
These are my people, yeah, woo

This ole house once knew my children
This ole house once knew my wife
This ole house was home and comfort
As we fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness
When the Lightnin' walks about

Ain't gonna need this house no longer
Ain't gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
Ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window pane
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

This ole house is a-gettin' shaky
This ole house is a-gettin' old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
Oh my knees are gettin' chilly
But I feel no fear or pain
'Cause I see an angel peekin'
Through a broken window pane

This ole house is afraid of thunder
This ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles
When the night wind flings its arms
This ole house is a-gettin' feeble
This ole house is a-needin' paint
Just like me it's tuckered out
But I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

Now my old hound dog lies a-sleepin'
He don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt the 'coon no more
Gabriel -done -brought in my chariot

John D. Loudermilk - Tobacco Road - ZZZ
I was born in a dump
Mama died and daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road

Grew up in a rusty shack
All I owned was a-hangin' on my back
Only Lord knows how I loathe
The place called Tobacco Road

But it's home, the only life I ever knowed
But the Lord knows I loathe Tobacco Road
But I loves you 'cause you're home

Gonna leave, get a job
With the help and the grace of God
Save my money, get rich I know
Bring it back to Tobacco Road

Bring dynamite and a crane
Blow it up and start over again
Build a town, be proud to show
Keep the name of Tobacco Road

'Cause it's the only life I knowed
I despise you 'cause you're filthy,
Tobacco Road
But I loves you 'cause you're home.

Don WilliamsTulsa Time - # ONE - 19791978 ACM Single of the Year
I left Oklahoma drivin' in a Pontiac
Just about to lose my mind
I was goin' on to Arizona, maybe on to California
Where all the people live so fine
My baby said I was crazy, my momma called me lazy
I was goin' to show 'em all this time
'Cause you know I ain't no fool and I don't need no more schoolin'
I was born to just walk the line
Livin' on Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time
Well, you know I've been through it
When I set my watch back to it
Livin' on Tulsa time
Well, there I was in Hollywood wishin' I was doin' good
Talkin' on the telephone line
But they don't need me in the movies and nobody sings my songs
Guess I'm just wastin' time
Well, then I got to thinkin', man I'm really sinkin'
And I really had a flash this time
I had no business leavin' and nobody would be grievin'
If I went on back to Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it
'Cause you know I've been through it
Livin' on Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it
'Cause you know I've been through it
Livin' on Tulsa time

Bill Monroe - Uncle Pen - ZZZ
Oh, the people would come from far away
They'd dance all night till the break of day
When the caller hollered Do-se-do'
He knew Uncle Pen was ready to go

Late in the evenin' about sundown
High on the hill above the town
Uncle Pen played the fiddle, oh how it would ring
You can hear it talk, you can hear it sing

He played an old piece called Soldier's Joy
And then the one called The Boston Boy
The greatest of all was Jenny Lind
To me that's where all fiddlin' begins

I'll never forget that mournful day
When Uncle Pen was called away
They hung up his fiddle, hung up his bow
They knew it was time for him to go.

Bryan Bowers - View From Home - ZZZ
Black crow sitting on a red roof, house on a hill
Old yellow truck in the driveway got some miles on her still
Out front the pavement's buckled where the roots have taken hold
To the south lies the mountain, a glory to behold

Down on the lake, countless boats are sailing
Up on the shoreline, a single figure runs
And off in the distance, the Cascades rise fiery
Burned in gold by the setting sun

Up north lies Alaska, our last true frontier
Out west lies the ocean, and Olympics so near
Back east lies madness, say what you will
Say I'm a maniac, singing on a hill

Out on the road, we tell all the turkeys
Yes it's always raining and the sun never shines
But all the natives know when the mountain lifts her skirts
The view from home will flat-out melt your mind

Darius Rucker - Wagon Wheel - # ONE - 2013
Heading down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbing my way into North Caroline
Staring up the road and pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a-hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight
So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey, momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey, momma rock me
I'm running from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more
So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey, momma rock me
Hey, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey, momma rock me
Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
Caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke
But he's a heading west from the Cumberland gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one
And if I die in Raleigh at least I will die free
So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey, momma rock me
Oh, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me
Oh, so rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey, momma rock me (mama rock me, mama rock me)
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey, ey yeah momma rock me (you can rock me, rock me)

Sam McGee - When The Wagon Was New - ZZZ
There's an old rusty wagon that's left to rot away
It's the one the family rode in, back in the good old days
People all loved their neighbor, everybody was so free
Ridin' in the brand new wagon was something to see

I can see my daddy sitting on a wagon seat
Mom in her old sun bonnet, she looked so nice and neat
Children all in the wagon, grandma and grandpa, too
And we used to go to church on Sunday, when the wagon was new

Wheels were on the wagon and the body, it was green
But we were all as happy as ridin' in a limousine
People used to gather 'round from all the mountain side
Take a look at the brand new wagon, and all take a ride

The automobiles are here now, and the wagon days are through
The airplanes are a hummin', good neighbors are so few
Everybody's in a hurry, it's the money that takes you through
We didn't need much money, when the wagon was new.

Alan Jackson - Where I Come From - # ONE - 2000
Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin' gears
'Round that Jersey Turnpike
When Barney stopped me with his gun
Ten minutes after midnight
Said sir you broke the limit in this rusty ol' truck
I don't know about that accent son
Just where did you come from
I said where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sittin'
Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
Well I was south of Detroit City
I pulled in this country kitchen
To try their brand of barbecue
The sign said finger-lickin'
Well I paid the tab and the lady asked me
How'd you like my biscuit
I'll be honest with you ma'am
It ain't like mama fixed it
'Cause where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
I was chasin' sun on 101
Somewhere around Ventura
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
This tall lady stopped and asked
If I had plans for dinner
Said no thanks ma'am, back home
We like the girls that sing soprano
'Cause where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sitiin'
Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
Well I was headed home on 65
Somewhere around Kentucky
And the CB rang for a bobtail rig
That's rollin' on like thunder
Well I answered him and he asked me
Aren't you from out in Tulsa
No, but you might'a seen me there
I just dropped a load of salsa
Where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
Where I come from yeah
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta back porch pickin'
Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
Where I come from
Yeah where I come from
A lotta front porch sittin'
Starin' up at heaven
Where I come from
Where I come from
Tryin' to make a livin'
Oh where I come from
Where I come from

Jimmie Davis - Where The Old Red River Flows - 1962
The lights are bright tonight on Broadway, and the city's bright as day
On the beach at Coney Island, where the liquor makes you gay,
But I'm heading South tonight, love, on the IC when she goes
To my farm in Louisiana, where the old Red River flows

As I sit and think of Dixie, cotton fields and whippoorwills
Where I spent my happy childhood among the rocks and among the rills
I can see my dear old mother, as around the place she goes
On my farm in Louisiana, where the old Red River flows

Hi-lee-oh-layee, you can hear the darkies singing soft and 'low
And at twilight in the evening, so soft and low, so low
On my farm in Louisiana, where the old Red River flows.

Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles - Who Says You Can't Go Home - # ONE - 2006
I spent twenty years trying to get out of this place
I was looking for something I couldn't replace
I was running away from the only thing I've ever known
Like a blind dog without a bone
I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone
I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold
I been there, done that
But I ain't looking back on the seeds I've sown
Saving dimes, spending too much time on the telephone
Who says you can't go home?
Who says you can't go home?
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy born a rolling stone
Who says you can't go home?
Who says you can't go back?
I been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
I went as far as I could
I tried to find a new face
There isn't one of these lines that I would erase
I lived a million miles of memories on that road
With every step I take, I know that I'm not alone
You take the home from the boy
But not the boy from his home
These are my streets, the only life I've ever known
Who says you can't go home?
Who says you can't go home?
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy born a rolling stone
Who says you can't go home?
Who says you can't go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?
It doesn't matter where you are
It doesn't matter where you go
If it's a million miles away or just a mile up the road
Take it in
Take it with you when you go
Who says you can't go home?
Who says you can't go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?

Charley Pride - Wonder Could I Live There Anymore - # ONE - 1970
Have you ever been awakened by the crowing of a rooster
While the night's dew is heavy on the ground
And the voice of Uncle Ben seems to break the morning silence
Bringing light to windows all around?
It's time to rise and shine and start another hard work day
Get the cows in and start the milking chores
It's nice to think about it, maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore?

Something 'bout the smell of cornbread cooking on a wood stove
Seems to bring a picture to my mind
Of a little three room house with mama in the kitchen
But she can't stop to talk, ain't got the time
She's fixing dad his supper, he's a-workin' overtime
Trying to pay our bill at the grocery store
It's nice to think about it, maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore?

Missus Browning was our neighbor who invited us to church
A Christian soul with Gospel words to -say
When she found our denomination wasn't just the same as hers
She told us that we were bound to pay
As I think about my childhood and of my old home town
I don't really miss them like before
It's nice to think about it, maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore?

Arlie Duff - Y'all Come - ZZZ
When you live in the country
Everybody is your neighbor
On this one thing you can rely
They'll all come to see you
And never, ever leave you
Sayin' you all come to see us by and by

Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Well, you all come to see us now and then
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Well, you all come to see us when you can

Kin folks a-comin'
They're comin' by the dozen
Eatin' everything from soup to hay
And right after dinner
They ain't looking any thinner
And here's what you hear them say

Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Well, you all come to see us now and then
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)

Grandma's a-wishin'
They'd come to the kitchen
And help do the dishes right away
But they all start a-leavin'
But even though she's grievin'
You can still hear Grandma say

Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Well, you all come to see us now and then
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Why'all come! (Y'all come!)
Well, you all come to see us when you can

Red Foley - Beyond The Sunset - ZZZ

Beyond the sunset, 0 blissful morning
When with our Saviour heav'n is begun
Earth's toiling ended, 0 glorious dawning
Beyond the sunset, when day is done.
Beyond the sunset no clouds will gather
No storms will threaten, no fears annoy
O day of gladness, O day unending
Beyond the sunset, eternal joy!

Beyond the sunset a hand will guide me
To God, the Father, Whom I adore
His glorious presence, His words of welcome
Will be my portion on that fair shore

Beyond the sunset, 0 glad reunion
With our dear loved ones who've gone before
In that fair homeland we'll know no parting
Beyond the sunset forever morel

Imperials - Bread on the Water - ZZZ

Well there are people
Never receiving
Anything from God at all
Oh, they are shaken
From their believing
When they don't see results
They quickly fall
But don't you waver
Keep on living
In the way God wants you to
Don't get discouraged
Keep on giving
Soon it will come back to you
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Good measure pressed down
Shaken together running over
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on working
Seeking the kingdom
Instead of working for your needs
Keep on sharing the love of Jesus
You know, growing comes from planting seeds
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Good measure pressed down
Shaken together running over
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave

Louvin Brothers - Christian Life The - ZZZ
I like the Christian life
My buddies tell me that I should have waited
They say I'm missing a whole world of fun
But I am happy and I sing with pride
I like the Christian life
I won't lose a friend by heeding God's call
For what is a friend who'd want you to fall
Others find pleasures in things I despise
I like the Christian life
My buddies shun me since I turned to Jesus
But I still love them they burden my heart
I'll try to lead them to walk in the light
I like the Christian life
I won't lose a friend by heeding God's call
For what is a friend who'd want you to fall
Others find pleasures in things I despise
I like the Christian life

Bailes Brothers - Dust On The Bible - ZZZ
I went into a home one day to see some friends of mine
Of all the books and magazines, not a Bible could I find
I asked them for the Bible; when they brought it, what a shame
For the dust was covered o'er it, not a fingerprint was plain

Dust on the Bible, dust on the holy word
The words of all the prophets and the sayings of the Lord
Of all the other books you'll find, there's none salvation holds
Get that dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul

The best advice to give him that will make his burden light
Is to dust the family Bible, trade the wrong way-for the right

Oh, you can read your magazines of love and tragic things
But not one word of Bible verse, not a scripture do you know
When it is the very truth and its contents good for you
But if dust is covered o'er it, it is sure to doom your soul

Oh, you have a friend you'd like to help along life's way
Just tell him that the Good Book shows a mortal how to pray
The best advice to give him that will make his burden light
Is to dust the family Bible, trade the wrong way for the right.

When God shut Noah in the grand old ark
He put a rainbow in the cloud
When thunders rolled and the sky was dark
God put a rainbow in the cloud

God put a rainbow in the cloud
God put a rainbow in the cloud
When it looked like the sun wouldn't shine anymore
God put a rainbow in the cloud

Away down yonder in Egypt's sand
God put a rainbow in the cloud
Just to lead his children to the promised land
God put a rainbow in the cloud

When they put old Daniel in the lion's den,
God put a rainbow in the cloud
Just to prove his promise to the sons of men
God put a rainbow in the cloud

As a sign by day and a sign by night
God put a rainbow in the cloud
Just to guide his people and keep them right
God put a rainbow in the cloud

Oh, Jordan deep and Jordan wide
God put a rainbow in the cloud
To lead his people to the other side
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

In these hills God walks with me.

Roy Acuff - Great Speckled Bird - ZZZ
What a beautiful thought I am thinking
Concerning the great speckled bird
Remember her name is recorded
On the pages of God's Holy Word

All the other birds are flocking 'round her
And she is despised by the squad
But the great speckled bird in the Bible
Is one with the great church of God

All the other churches are against her
They envy her glory and fame
They hate her because she is chosen
And has not denied Jesus' name

Desiring to lower her standard
They watch every move that she makes
They try to find fault with her teachings
But really they find no mistakes

She is spreading her wings for a journey
She's going to leave by and by
When the trumpet shall sound in the morning
She'll rise and go up in the sky

In the presence of all her despisers
With a song never uttered before
She will rise and be gone in a moment
Till the great tribulation is o'er

I am glad I have learned of her meekness
I am proud that my name is on the book
For I want to be one never fearing
The face of my Savior to look

When He cometh descending from heaven
On the cloud as is wrote in the Word
I'll be joyfully carried up to meet Him
On the wings of the great speckled bird.

Oh Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made

Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Traveling through this wearisome land
I got a home in that yonder city, oh, Lord
And it's not made by hand

I got a mother, a sister and a brother
Who have gone to that sweet land
I'm determined to go and see them, good Lord
All over on that distant shore

As I go down to that river of Jordan
Just to bathe my weary soul
If I could touch but the hem of His garment, good Lord
Well I believe it would make me whole.

No more darkness, no more night
Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord! I saw the light

I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear Saviour in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord! I saw the light

Just like a blind man, I wandered alone
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord! I saw the light.

Straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light.

Brown's Ferry Four - If We Never Meet Again - ZZZ
Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
And perhaps we'll never meet anymore
Til we gather in heaven's bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the river of life

Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separation come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

Oh so often we are parted with sorrow
And action often quietens our pain
But we never shall sorrow in heaven
God be with you till we meet again

To a home on God's celestial shore

When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have grown
I'll fly away
Like a bird from prison bars have flown
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys shall never end
I'll fly away.

When I get to glory I'm gonna sing sing sing
I'm gonna let the Hallelujahs ring
I'm gonna praise my blessed Savior's name
When I get to glory I'm gonna sing sing sing

Stuart Hamblen - It Is No Secret - ZZZ
The chimes of time ring out the news, another day is through
Someone slipped and fell; was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened, for I bring hope to you

It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others, He'll do for you
With arms wide open, He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night, for in His light, you'll never walk alone
Always feel at home, wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you while God is on your side
Take Him at His promise, don't run away and hide.

Ernest Ashworth - Jesus Juice - ZZZ
Red Foley - Just A Closer Walk With Thee - ZZZ
I am weak, but Thou are strong
Jesus, keep me from all wrong
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee

Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea
Daily walking close to Thee
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be

Through this world of toil and snares
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee

When my feeble life is o'er
Time for me will be no more
Guide me gently, safely o'er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.

Mac Wiseman - Let the Lower Lights Be Burning - ZZZ
Brightly beams our Father's mercy from his lighthouse evermore But to us he gives the keeping of the lights along the shore

the lower lights be burning, send a gleam across the wave
Some poor fainting struggling seaman, you may rescue you may save
Dark the night of sin has settled loud the angry billows roar
Eager eyes are watching longing for the lights along the shore

the lower lights be burning, send a gleam across the wave
Some poor fainting struggling seaman, you may rescue you may save
Trim your feeble lamp my brother, some poor sailor tempest tossed
Trying now to make the harbor in the darkness may be lost

the lower lights be burning, send a gleam across the wave
Some poor fainting struggling seaman, you may rescue you may save

Seldom Scene - Life Is Like a Mountain Railway - ZZZ
Life is like a mountain railway
With an engineer that's brave

We must make the run successful
From the cradle to the grave
Heed the curves and watch the tunnels
Never falter, never fail
Keep your hands upon the throttle
And your eye upon the rail

Blessed Saviour there to guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
And the angels there to join us
In God's grace forevermore
As you roll across the trestle
Spanning Jordan's swelling tide

You will reach the Union Depot
Into which your train will ride
There you'll meet the superintendent
God the father, God the son
With a happy joyous greeting
Weary pilgrim, welcome home

Blessed Saviour there to guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
And the angels there to join us
In God's grace forevermore
In God's grace forevermore

Life is like a mountain railroad with an engineer that's brave

Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels; never falter, never quail
Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail

Blessed Savior, Thow will guide us, till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us in Thy grace forever more

You will roll up grades of trial, you will cross the bridge of strife
See that Christ is your conductor on this lightning train of life
Always mindful of obstruction, do your duty, never fail
Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail


You will often find obstructions, look for storms and wind and rain
On a BE or curve or trestle they will almost ditch your train
Put your trust alone in Jesus; never falter, never fail
Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail

As you roll across the trestle, spanning Jordan's swelling tide

You behold the Union Depot into which your train will glide
There you'll meet the Superintendent, God the Father, God the Son
With the hearty, joyous plaudit, Weary pilgrim, welcome home!

Blackwood Brothers - The Old Rugged Cross - ZZZ
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suff'ring and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world
Has a wondrous attraction for me

For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary

In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine
A wondrous beauty I see
For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He'll call me some day to my home far away
Where His glory forever I'll share.

Cristy Lane - One Day At A Time - # ONE - 1980
I'm only human, I'm just a woman.
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am.
Show me the stairway, I have to climb.
Lord for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.
One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you.
Just give me the strength
To do everyday what I have to do.
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me the way
One day at a time.
Do you remember, when you walked among men?
Well Jesus you know if you're looking below
It's worse now, than then.
Cheating and stealing, violence and crime
So for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.
One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you.
Just give me the strength
To do everyday what I have to do.
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me the way
One day at a time.

Hank Williams & Audrey Williams - The Pale Horse And His Rider - ZZZ
Living on the road my friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath's as hard as kerosene
You weren't your mama's only boy
But her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams
Pancho was a bandit boys
His horse was fast as polished steel
Wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match you know
On the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dying words
That's the way it goes
All the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him hang around
Out of kindness I suppose
Lefty he can't sing the blues
All night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south
Ended up in Lefty's mouth
The day they laid poor Pancho low
Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go
There ain't nobody knows
All the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
Out of kindness I suppose
The poets tell how Pancho fell
Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold
So the story ends we're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true,
But save a few for Lefty too
He just did what he had to do
Now he's growing old
A few gray federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him go so wrong
Out of kindness I suppose

Shenandoah Cut-Ups - Preachin Prayin Singin - ZZZ
I was a stranger there, intent upon my way
But when I saw the crowd, I had the urge to stay
I heard a welcome voice bidding me come and share
Their preachin', prayin', singin', down on the public square.

Preachin', prayin', singin' everywhere
Shouting their praises of His loving care
All of God's children seem to gather there
Preachin', prayin', singin', down on the public square

I felt so much at home amid this happy throng
That came from far and near to praise His name in song
To lay their burdens down, forget their every care
And have an old-time meetin' down on the public square

Now as I journey on, and think back O'er the day
I am convinced within these folks have found the way
To put their hearts in song, to pray an earnest prayer
And leave the joy bells ringin', down on the public square.

Verse 1:
You ask me if I'm Happy
If I have peace Within
If I'm worried about Tomorrow
When I [2] reach my journey's End
Well, I'm Satisfied with my Jesus
When He knocks, I'll let Him In
He'll go with me through the Valley
for I know He is my Friend.

Verse 2:
Now If my friends, they all forsake Me
And they turn me from their Door
If they sow no seeds of Kindness
Make the thorns in my path Grow
Oh, it won't matter over Yonder
When I've reached that other Side
For I'm gonna sit down by my Jesus
Satisfied, Satisfied.

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angels he has brought,
With it's crystal tides forever
Flowing by the throne of God

Yes, we'll gather at the river.
The beautiful, the beautiful, river.
Gather with the saints at the river,
That flows by the throne of God

Ere we reach the shining river
Lay we every burden down,
Praise our spirits will deliver
And provide our robe and crown.

Yes, we'll gather at the river.
The beautiful, the beautiful, river.
Gather with the saints at the river,
That flows by the throne of God

Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

Yes, we'll gather at the river.
The beautiful, the beautiful, river.
Gather with the saints at the river,
That flows by the throne of God

Carrie Underwood - Something in the Water - # ONE - 2014
He said, I've been where you've been before.
Down every hallway's a slamming door.
No way out, no one to come and save me
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me
Then somebody said what I'm saying to you
Opened my eyes and told me the truth.
They said, Just a little faith, it'll all get better.
So I followed that preacher man down to the river
And now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger
There must've been something in the water
Oh, there must've been something in the water
Well, I heard what he said and I went on my way
Didn't think about it for a couple of days
Then it hit me like a lightning late one night
I was all out of hope and all out of fight
Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, God, if you're there come and rescue me.
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood
And now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger
There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
And now I'm singing along to amazing grace
Can't nobody wipe this smile off my face
Got joy in my heart, angels on my side
Thank God almighty, I saw the light
Gonna look ahead, no turning back
Live everyday, give it all that I have
Trust in someone bigger than me
Ever since the day that I believed
I am changed
And now I'm stronger
There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
Oh, yeah I am changed
Stronger

Jimmie Davis - Supper Time - ZZZ
Many years ago in days of childhood
I used to play till evening shadows come
Then winding down an old familiar pathway
I heard my mother call at set of sun

Come home, come home, it's supper time
The shadows lengthen fast
Come home, come home, it's supper time
We're going home at last

One day beside her bedside I was kneeling
And angel wings were winnowing the air
She heard the call for supper time in heaven
And I know she's waiting for me there

In visions now I see her standing yonder
And her familiar voice I hear once more
The banquet table's ready up in heaven
It's supper time up on the golden shore.

Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Thru the storm, thru the night, lead me on to the light
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear, precious Lord, linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call, hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand, guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

While the world looks upon me
As I struggle along
They say I've got nothing
But they are so wrong
In my heart I'm rejoicing
How I wish they could see
Thank you Lord
For your blessing on me!
There's a roof up above me
I've a good place to sleep
There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord
For your blessings on me!
I know I'm not wealthy
These clothes, they're not new
I don't have much money
But Lord I have you
And that's all that matters
Though the world may not see

Well, I'm tired and so weary, but I must go along
Till the Lord comes to call me away
Where the morning's so bright and the Lamb is the light
And the night, night is as fair as the day

There will be peace in the valley for me someday
There will be peace in the valley for me, Oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I'll see
There will be peace in the valley for me

Well, the bear will be gentle, and the wolf will be tame
And the lion will lay down by the lamb
And the beasts from the wild will be led by a lit'le child
I'll be changed, changed from this creature that I am.

There's a Big Wheel
There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than you
There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than me

When you think you've got the world by the tail
And you don't have to worry 'bout a thing
When you think the world can never hold you down
Do you ever think of His name?

There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than you
There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than me

Do you ever stop to think
How you got that worldly fame?
Don't you know He's watching over you?
Anytime he can ??? your name

There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than you
There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than me

When you think that you're a big, big shot
And everything you do is a whiz
Just remember, brother, that everything you've got
Is not yours, remember, it's His!

There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel
He's a whole lot bigger than you
There's a big wheel, there's a big wheel

Sons of the Pioneers - Touch Of God's Hand - ZZZ
The prairie sound sends down its ray
To warm my heart through every day
The starlight beam that guides my way
Is just the touch of God's hand

The scattered pearls of morning dew
The rainbow mist on hills of blue
The silver veil of moonbeams, too
Is just the touch of God's hand

The desert breeze that brushed my hair
The leaf that fell from who knows where
The scent of wildflowers in the air
Is just the touch of God's hand

The wasteland fall that fills the sky
The hum of wild wings sailing by
The warm earth bed on which I lie
Is just the touch of God's hand

The desert yields a water pool
Where wild things meet their thirst to cool
And I'm a carefree, happy fool
I know the touch of God's hand

The rain that falls I love so dear
And joy is mine just livin' here
I know He must be standin' near
I feel the touch of God's hand.

Molly O'Day - The Tramp On The Street - # ONE - ZZZ
Only a tramp was Laz'rus that day
It was he who Jay at the rich man's gate
He begged for the crumbs from the rich man to eat
He was left there to die like a tramp on the street

He was some mother's darling, some mother's son
Once he was fair, and once he was young
Some mother once rocked her darling to sleep
He was left there to die like a tramp on the street

Jesus, who died on Calvary's tree
Shed His life's blood for you and for me
They pierced His side, His hands and His feet
And left Him to die like a tramp on the street

He was King of the Jews and God's chosen Son
He was so fair, and once He was young
Mary once rocked her Darling to sleep
He was left there to die like a tramp on the street

If Jesus should come and knock at your door
And ask you to give the crumbs from your floor
Would you welcome Him in or turn Him away?
You'll have your reward on that Judgment Day.

Coming from the land of endless spring

Turn the lights down low And listen to the Master's radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on

Listen to the glad hosannas roll
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
Get a little taste of joy awaiting
Get a little heaven in your soul
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on

Listen to the songs of the fathers and the mothers
And the many friends gone before
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
Some eternal morning we shall meet them
Over on the hallelujah shore
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on.

Here the labor is so hard, the workers are so tired
And our weary hearts are yearnin' for a rest
And we find we're getting anxious to be in that happy land
Where we'll receive such peace and happiness

But) wait a little longer, please, Jesus
There's so many still wand'ring out in sin
Just a little longer, please, Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in

We may look into the skies, and tears will fill our eyes
For our burdened heart grows heavier with each day
First we cry Oh Lord, please come, come and take your children home
But then we look around us and we say:

The family's scattered here and there, but, Lord, we love them dear
And maybe we can help them find the way
Then if waiting is the cost, they may not be lost
Lord, that's the only reason why we say:

Where we once pledged our love, so divine

Till the day I go back to that hollow
I will follow the old golden rule
For it taught me to pray and to live for that day
When we'll meet in the hollow back home

A long winding pathway leads over the hill
And when all is still, I hear the whippoorwill
It calls from that woodland, my heaven to be
And tells me she waits patiently.

Living below in this old sinful world
Hardly a comfort can afford
Striving alone to face temptations sore
Where could I go but to the Lord?

Where could I go but to the Lord?
Where could I go? Oh, where could I go?
Seeking refuge for my soul
Needing a friend to save me in the end
Where could I go but to the Lord?

Neighbors are kind, I love them every one
We get along in sweet accord
But when my soul needs manna from above
Where could I go but to the Lord?

Life here is grand with friends I love so dear
Comfort I get from God's own word
Yet when I face the chilling hand of death
Where could I go but to the Lord?

To deserve even one

Tell me Lord, what did I ever do

Or the kindness you've shown.

Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I've need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.
Tell me Lord, if you think there's a way
I can try to repay
All I've taken from you
Maybe Lord, I can show someone else
What I've been through myself
On my way back to you.

Ferlin Husky - Wings Of A Dove - # ONE - 1960
When troubles surround us, when evils come
The body grows weak, the spirit grows numb
When these things beset us, He doesn't forget us
He sends down His love on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends His pure, sweet love
A sign from above on the wings of a dove

When Noah had drifted on the Flood many days
He searched for land in various ways
Troubles he had some but wasn't forgotten
He sent him His love on the wings of a dove

When Jesus went down to the waters that day
He was baptized in the usual way
When it was done, God blessed his Son
He sent Him His love on the wings of a dove.

Stonewall Jackson - B.J. the D.J. - # ONE - ZZZ

A story bout a pal of mine who worked down near the Georgia Line
A DJ in a little country station
Everybody loved him dear cause he played what they liked to hear
He built himself a quite a reputation
At record hops he stayed out late and his mom would always wait
To see if he had made it home alive
She warned against his loss of sleep and driving fast in that old heap
And that he had to be at work by five.
BJ the DJ you're living much too fast
And if you don't change your ways don't see how you can last.
Every morning just past four from the driveway he would roar
Overslept and he was late again.
Then at breakneck speed he'd drive to sign the station on at five
He had lots of records he must spin.
His mom said by the radio until his voice told her hello
She knew then that he made it there alright
Then she'd say a little prayer, giving thanks that he was there. And she'd wait up for him again tonight
Then one cold and rainy morn all the tires were badly worn
But still he screeched off just as fast this time.
BJ had a lot of nerve but he completely missed the curve
And he signed off down near the Georgia Line
Mom sat by the radio the voice she heard she didn't know
BJ'd never been this late before
But with the road so bad and all she'd wait a while before she called
And then she heard the knock upon the door
BJ the DJ only twenty four a wreck at ninety miles an hour he'll spin the hits no more.

Garth Brooks - Beaches Of Cheyenne The - # ONE - ZZZ

They packed up all his buckles
And shipped his saddle to his dad
By the way the house looked
She must have took it bad
The workers come on Monday
To fix the door and patch the wall
They say she just went crazy
The night she got the call
He was up in Wyoming
And drew a bull no man could ride
He promised her he'd turn out
Well it turned out that he lied
And all the dreams that they'd been livin'
In the California sand
Dyin' right there beside him in Cheyenne
They she just went crazy
Screamin' out his name
She ran out into the ocean
And to this day they claim
That if you go down by the water
You'll see her footprints in the sand
'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne
They never found her body
Just her diary by the bed
It told about the fight they had
And the words that she had said
When he told her he was ridin'
She said then I don't give a damn
If you never come back from Cheyenne
Nobody can explain it
Some say she's still alive
They even claim they've seen her
On the shoreline late at night
'Cause if you go down by the water
You'll see her footprints in the sand
'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne
'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

She loved me, I know, she always will

Chorus:
There's a bluebird singing (there's a bluebird singing)
In the Blue Ridge Mountains (in the Blue Ridge Mountains)
It's a-calling me back to my home
Oh I can hear (oh I can hear)
The bluebirds calling (the bluebirds calling)
It's a-calling me back to my home

-Solo-

But tonight I'm afar from the Blue Ridge Mountains
Far from my home back in the hills
But I'm going back to the Blue Ridge Mountains
These memories haunt me still

Chorus: -Solo-

When I reached my home, I was oh so lonely
The one I loved had gone away
That sad news came from her mother
She's sleeping there beneath the clay

Chorus:

ZZZ Vince Gill - Bread and Water - ZZZ

One night he wandered into that old mission
The one out on the poor side of town
He really had no interest in salvation
Just a place to lay his drunk ole body down
He said, Ma'am I sure am hungry
And I don't have a penny to my name
Lord knows I hadn't worked in a month of Sundays
I'm dirty, dead broke and so ashamed
I need bread and water, ma'am that's all I need
Bread and water, and a place to rest my feet
I ain't too proud to get down on my knees
For bread and water's free
She said, you're always welcome at this table
Said, brother you look like you could use a friend
And there's no need to beg if you're not able
'Cause even Jesus was a homeless man
Well she opened up the Word and started reading
About the Savior and the woman at the well
Said it ain't for me to judge this life you're leading
There's only two things can save your soul from hell
It's bread and water, man that's all you need
Bread and water, and a place to rest your feet
If you ain't too proud to get down on your knees
The bread and water's free
When he bowed his head he kinda choked up
They spoke every word of our Lord's Prayer
He closed his eyes and never woke up
He'll find bread and water waiting there
Bread and water, man that's all you need
Bread and water, a place to rest your feet
Bread and water, man that's all you need
Bread and water, brother just believe
If you ain't too proud to get down on your knees
The bread and water's free
Bread and water's free

Martina McBride - Broken Wing A - # ONE - ZZZ

She loved him like he was
The last man on Earth
Gave him everything she ever had
He'd break her spirit down
Then come lovin' up on her
Give a little then take it back
She'd tell him 'bout her dreams
He'd just shoot 'em down
Lord he loved to make her cry
You're crazy for believin'
You'll ever leave the ground
He said only angels know how to fly
And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye over the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly
One Sunday morning
She didn't go to church
He wondered why she didn't leave
He went up to the bedroom
Found a note by the window
With the curtains blowin' in the breeze
And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye over the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly

Carter Family - Bury Me Beneath The Willow - ZZZ

Bury me beneath the willow the weeping willow tree
When he hears his love is sleeping
Maybe then he'll think of me

My heart is sad and I am lonely
Thinking of the one I love
Will I see him never, never
Till we meet in heaven above

He told me that he dearly loved me
How could I believe him untrue
Then one day some neighbors told me
He has proven untrue to you

Place on my grave a snow-white lily
To prove that I was true to him
And tell him that I died to save him
When his love I could not win

Then bury me beneath the willow
'Neath the weeping willow tree
And tell some brown-eyed boy I'm sleeping
Then perhaps he'll weep for me.

Carter Family - Can The Circle Be Unbroken? - ZZZ
I was standin' by the window
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken, by and by, Lord, by and by?
There's a better home a-waiting in the sky, Lord, in the sky

Lord. I told the undertaker
Undertaker, please drive slow
For this body you are hauling Lord
I hate to see her go

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky. Lord, In the sky

I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Went back home
Lord, my home was lonesome
Miss my mother she was gone
All my brothers. sisters crying
What a home so sad and lone

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better home a-waiting

Doc Williams - Carry Me Back To The Mountains - ZZZ
I was a wild, careless youngster
Longin' to roam from the start
So I left my home in the mountains
And broke my poor darlin's heart

I caught a train at the crossin'
And never told her goodbye
Then someone wrote me a letter
And told me my sweetheart had died

Carry me back to the mountains
Beneath the southern skies
Lay me to rest in the mountains
That's where my sweetheart lies

I get so lonesome and weary
No matter where I roam
Oh, carry me back to the mountains
Back to my home, sweet home

I've roamed this whole wide world over
Livin' a life of regret
Longin' to be with my darlin'
Tryin' so hard to forget

I pray that God will forgive me
And on that bright, peaceful shore
I'll find her waitin' in heaven
Where we will part never more.

Martina McBride - Concrete Angel - 2003
She walks to school with the lunch
She packed
Nobody knows what she's
Holdin' back
Wearin' the same dress
She wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen
And lace
The teacher wonders but she
Doesn't ask
It's hard to see the pain
Behind the mask
Bearing the burden
Of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was
Never born
Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete angel
Somebody cries in the middle
Of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn
Out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands
Of fate
When morning comes
It'll be too late
Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete angel
A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot
Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete angel

Vernon Dalhart - Death Of Floyd Collins The - ZZZ
Oh, come all you young people and listen while I tell
The fate of Floyd Collins, a lad we all know well
His face was fair and handsome, his heart was true and brave
His body now lies sleeping in a lonely sandstone cave

How sad, how 'Sad the story, it fills our eyes with tears
Its memories, too, will linger for many, many years
A broken-hearted father, who tried his boy to save
Will now weep tears of sorrow at the door of Floyd's cave

Oh, mother, don't you worry; dear father, don't be sad
I'll tell you all my troubles in an awful dream I had
I dreamed that I was prisoner, my life I could not save
I cried, Oh, must I perish within this silent cave?

Oh, Floyd, cried his mother, Don't go, my son, don't go
'Twould leave us broken-hearted if this should happen so
Though Floyd did not listen, advice his mother gave
So his body now lies sleeping in a lonely sandstone cave

His father often warned him from follies to desist
He told him of the danger and of the awful risk
But Floyd would not listen to the oft advice he gave
So his body now lies sleeping in a lonely sandstone cave

Oh, bow the news did travel! Oh, how the news did go
It traveled through the papers and over the radio
A rescue party gathered, his life they tried to save
But his body now lies sleeping in a lonely sandstone cave

The rescue party labored, they worked both night and day
To move the mighty barrier that stood within the way
To rescue Floyd Collins, this was their battle cry
We'll never, no, we'll never let Floyd Collins die

But on that fatal morning, the sun rose in the sky
The workers still were busy, we'll save him by and by
But, oh how sad the ending, his life could not be saved
His body then was sleeping in a lonely sandstone cave

Young people, oh, take warning from Floyd Collins' fate
And get right with your Maker before it is too late
It may not be a sand cave in which we find our tomb
But at the bar of judgment, we, too, must meet our doom

The mining experts gathered, they sought to find a plan
To lift poor Floyd's body from far beneath the sand
And oh, how they did struggle with hearts brave and stout
But the cave that swallowed Collins would never let him out.

Ralph Stanley - Death Of John Henry The - ZZZ
Jimmy Osborne - Death Of Little Kathy Fiscus The - ZZZ
On April the eighth, the year 'forty-nine
Death claimed a little child, so pure and so kind
Kathy, they called her, met her doom that day
I know it was God that called her away

Playmates with Kathy were all having fun
The story was told, they all started to run
And as they looked back, she wasn't there
It's so sad to think of this tragic affair

Just Eke a beast in the forest that day
The abandoned well took Kathy away
For over two days, the well was her tomb
Everyone kept praying they'd get her out soon

Thousands were there from far and from near
Workmen, they struggled against sadness and tears
But after two days, their hopes grew so weak
They called down to Kathy, but she never did speak

After working so hard, both day and night
Digging for hours, she came into sight
The little darling was dead; her life, it was gone
Now in San Marino, there's a heart-broken home

I'm sure she's an angel in God's peaceful fold
Playing with children in a mansion of gold
As I stand alone, humbly I bow I know
Kathy's happy up there with God now.

Roy Acuff - Don't Make Me Go To Bed And I'll Be Good - ZZZ
A laughing baby boy, one evening in his play
Disturbed the household with his noisy glee
I warned him to be good, but he soon did disobey
For he would soon forget a word from me

I called him to my side and said, Son, you must go to bed
'Cause your conduct has been very, very rude
With trembling lips and tear-filled eyes, he pleaded then with me
Don't make me go to bed and I'll be good

Don't, papa, and I'll be good
Don't, papa, and I'll be good
That's what I heard him say
And it haunts me night and day
Don't make me go to bed and I'll be good

Our lives had just been gladdened by his bright ascending beams
Our boy now in our hearts was very dear
I hastened to his bed and found him talking in his sleep
He didn't seem to know that we were near

I took him in my arms and found his body racked with pain
To ease his pain, we did the best we could
It broke my heart to hear him crying loudly in his sleep
Don't make me go to bed and I'll be good

How sorrow fills our heart, bow fears oppress our mind
When danger gathers 'round those ones we love
He lingered but a day, then his spirit passed away
To join the angel chorus up above

All night and day we watched and prayed, we never left his side
To give him up, it seemed we never could
It broke my heart to hear him saying just before he died
Don't make me go to bed and I'll be good.

Tim McGraw - Don't Take the Girl - # ONE - 1994
Johnny's daddy was taking him fishin'
When he was eight years old
Little girl came through the front gate
Holdin' a fishin' pole
His dad looked down and smiled
He said, We can't leave her behind
Son, I know you don't want her to go
But someday you'll change your mind
And Johnny said
Take Jimmy Johnson
Take Tommy Thompson
Take my best friend, Bo
Take anybody that you want as
Long as she don't go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy please, don't take the girl
Same old boy, same sweet girl
Ten years down the road
He held her tight and kissed her lips in
Front of the picture show
Stranger came and pulled a gun
Grabbed her by the arm said
If you do what I tell you to
There won't be any harm
And Johnny said Take my money
Take my wallet
Take my credit cards
Here's the watch that my Grandpa gave me
Here's the key to my car
Mister give it a whirl
But please don't take the girl
Same old boy
Same sweet girl
Five years down the road
There's gonna be a little one and she
Says it's time to go
Doctor says the baby's fine
But you'll have to leave
'Cause his momma's fading fast and
Johnny hit his knees and there he prayed
Take the very breath you gave me
Take the heart from my chest
I'll gladly take her place if you'll let me
Make this my last request
Take me out of this world
God, please don't take the girl
Johnny's daddy
Was taking him fishin'
When he was eight years old

Johnny Cash - Don't Take Your Guns To Town - # ONE - 1959
A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm
A boy filled with wonderlust who really meant no harm
He changed his clothes and shined his boots
And combed his dark hair down
And his mother cried as he walked out
Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town
He laughed and kissed his mom
And said your Billy Joe's a man
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
But I wouldn't shoot without a cause
I'd gun nobody down
But she cried again as he rode away
Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town
He sang a song as on he rode
His guns hung at his hips
He rode into a cattle town
A smile upon his lips
He stopped and walked into a bar
And laid his money down
But his mother's words echoed again
Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town
He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
And tried to tell himself he had at last he had become a man
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
And he heard again his mothers words
Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town
Filled with rage then
Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw
But the stranger drew his gun and fired
Before he even saw
As Billy Joe fell to the floor
The crowd all gathered 'round
And wondered at his final words
Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town

Luke Bryan - Drink A Beer - # ONE - 2014
When I got the news today
I didn't know what to say.
So I just hung up the phone.
I took a walk to clear my head,
This is where the walking lead
Can't believe you're really gone
Don't feel like going home
So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good lord knows
The reasons why it gets
Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don't make sense
I can't make it all make sense
So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
So long my friend, until we meet again
I'll remember you
And all the times we used to
Sit right here on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Drink a beer, drink a beer.

Jimmie Rodgers - Drunkard's Child A - ZZZ
My father is a drunkard, my mother she is dead
And I am just an orphan child, no place to lay my bead
All through this world I wander, they drive me from their door
Someday I'll find a welcome on heaven's golden shore

Now if to me you'll listen, I'll tell a story sad
How drinking rum and the gambling hall have stole away my dad
My mother is in heaven, where God and the angels smile
And now I know she's watching her lonely orphan child

We all were once so happy and had a happy home
Till daddy went to drinking rum and then he gambled some
He left my darling mother, she died of a broken heart
And as I tell my story, I can see your teardrops start

Don't weep for me and mother, although I know 'tis sad
But try to get someone to cheer and save my poor lonely dad
I'm awful cold and hungry, she closed her eyes and sighed
Then those who heard her story knew the orphan child had died.

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain.
You weren't afraid to face the devil,
You were no stranger to the rain.
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.
Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve.
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing.
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

Dixie Chicks - Goodbye Earl - 2000
Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4H club, both active in the FFA
After graduation
Mary Anne went out lookin' for a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town and all she found was Earl

Well, it wasn't two weeks after she got married that
Wanda started gettin'abused
She'd put on dark glasses or long sleeved blouses
Or make-up to cover a bruise
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
And she let the law take it from there
But Ead walked Nght through that restraining order
And put her In intensive care

Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wanda's hand as they worked out a plan
And it didn't take 'em long to decide

That Earl had to dle. goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas, they tasted alright to me, Earl
You're feelin' weak? Why don't you lay down and sleep, Earl
Ain't it dark wrapped up in that tarp, Earl

The cops came by to bring Earl in
They searched the house high and low
Then they tipped their hats and said, thank you ladies
If you hear from him let us know
Well, the weeks went by and spring turned to summer
And summer faded into fall
And it turns out he was a missing person who nobody missed at all

So the girls bought some land and a roadside stand
Out on highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham and strawberry jam
And they don't lose any sleep at night. 'cause

Ead had to die. goodbye Earl
We need a break.. let's go out to the lake, Earl
We'll pack a lunch, and stuff you in the trunk. Earl
Is that alright? Good! Let's go for a ride, Earl, hey!
Ooh hey hey hey, ummm hey hey hey, hey hey hey

Nothin' on this white rock but little ol' me
I've got two miles till he makes bail
And if I'm right, we're headed straight for hell
I'm goin' home, gonna load my shotgun
Wait by the door, and light a cigarette
If he wants a fight, well, now he's got one
And he ain't seen me crazy yet
He slapped my face, and he shook me like a rag doll
Don't that sound like a real man?
I'm going to show him what little girls are made of
Gunpowder and lead
Well, it's half past ten, another six-pack in
And I can feel the rumble like the cold black wind
He pulls in the drive, the gravel flies
He don't know what's waiting here this time
Yeah, I'm goin' home, gonna load my shotgun
Wait by the door, and light a cigarette
If he wants a fight, well, now he's got one
And he ain't seen me crazy yet
He slapped my face, and he shook me like a rag doll

His fist is big, but my gun's bigger
He'll find out when I pull the trigger
I'm goin' home, gonna load my shotgun
Wait by the door, and light a cigarette
If he wants a fight, well, now he's got one
And he ain't seen me crazy yet
He slapped my face, and he shook me like a rag doll

He said I'll love you till I die, she told him You'll forget in time
As the years went slowly by, she still preyed upon his mind
He kept her picture on his wall, went half-crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all, hoping she'd come back again
Kept some letters by his bed dated nineteen sixty-two
He had underlined in red every single I love you
I went to see him just today, oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away, first time I'd seen him smile in years
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
You know, she came to see him one last time
Aww, 'n' we all wondered if she would
And it kept runnin' through my mind this time he's over her for good
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

Jimmy Rodgers - Hobo Bill's Last Ride - ZZZ
Riding on an East-bound freight train, speeding through the night
Hobo Bill, a railroad bum, was fighting for his life
The sadness of his eyes revealed the torture of his soul
He rose a weak and weary hand to brush away the cold

No warm lights flickered 'round him, no blankets there to hold
Nothing but the howling wind and the driving rain so cold
When he heard a whistle blowing in a dreamy kind of way
The hobo seemed contented, for he smiled there where he lay

Outside the rain was falling on that lonely boxcar door
But the little form of Hobo Bill lay still upon the floor
While the train sped through the darkness and the raging storm outside
No one knew that Hobo Bill was taking his last ride

It was early in the morning when they raised the hobo's head
The smile still lingered on his face, but Hobo Bill was dead
There was no mother's longing to soothe his weary soul
For he was just a railroad bum who died out in the cold.

Bobby GoldsboroHoney - # ONE - 19681968 CMA Song of the Year
See the tree, how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad,
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran out
To brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited,
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart,
Kinda dumb and kinda smart
And I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late
'Cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show
And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could
She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of a day
And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away
And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could
One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage
Where honey lived and honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That honey loved
And see the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it,
Was just a twig

Blaine Larsen - How Do You Get That Lonely - 2005
It was just another story written on the second page
Underneath the Tiger's football score
It said he was only eighteen, a boy about my age
They found him face down on his bedroom floor
There'll be services on Friday at the Lawrence Funeral Home
Then out on Mooresville highway, they'll lay him 'neath a stone
How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad
To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all
Is better than the life that you had
How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go
How do you get that lonely, and nobody know
Did his girlfriend break up with him, did he buy or steal that gun?
Did he lose a fight with drugs or alcohol?
Did his Mom and Daddy forget to say I love you son?
Did no one see the writing on the wall?
I'm not blamin' anybody, we all do the best we can
I know hindsight's 20/20, but I still don't understand
How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad
To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all
Is better than the life that you had
How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go
How do you get that lonely, and nobody know
It was just another story printed on the second page

I am a man of constant sorrow,
I've seen trouble all my day
I bid farewell to old Kentucky,
The place where I was born and raised

For six long years I've been in trouble,
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I'm bound to ramble,
I have no friends to help me now
(He has no friends to help him now)
It's fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad,
Perhaps I'll die upon this train
(Perhaps he'll die upon this train)
You can bury me in some deep valley,
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another,
While I am sleeping in my grave
(While he is sleeping in his grave)
Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face, you'll never see no more
But there is one promise that is given
I'll meet you on God's golden shore
(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)

Lee BriceI Drive Your Truck - 20132013 ACM Song of the Year 2013 CMA Song of the Year
Eighty-nine cents in the ash tray
Half empty bottle of Gatorade rolling in the floorboard
That dirty Braves cap on the dash
Dog tags hanging from the rear view
Old Skoal can, and cowboy boots and a Go Army Shirt
Folded in the back
This thing burns gas like crazy, but that's alright
People got their ways of coping
Oh, and I've got mine
I drive your truck
I roll every window down and I burn up
Every back road in this town
I find a field, I tear it up
Till all the pain's a cloud of dust
Yeah, sometimes I drive your truck
I leave that radio playing
Same old country station where you left it
Yeah, man I crank it up
And you'd probably punch my arm right now
If you saw this tear rolling down on my face
Hey, man I'm trying to be tough
And Momma asked me this morning, if I'd been by your grave
But that flag and stone ain't where I feel you anyway
I drive your truck
I roll every window down and I burn up
Every back road in this town
I find a field, I tear it up
Till all the pain's a cloud of dust
Yeah, sometimes I drive your truck
I've cussed, I've prayed, I've said goodbye
Shook my fist and asked God why
These days when I'm missing you this much
I drive your truck
I roll every window down
And I burn up
Every back road in this town
I find a field, I tear it up
Till all the pain's a cloud of dust, yeah sometimes,
Brother sometimes
I drive your truck
I drive your truck
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
I drive your truck

Dwight Yoakam - I Sang Dixie - # ONE - 1989
I sang Dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang Dixie as he died
He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are
On this damned old L.A. street
Then he drew a dying breath
And laid his head against my chest
Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie
He said listen to me son while you still can
Run back home to that Southern land
Don't you see what life here has done to me?
Then he closed those old blue eyes
And fell limp against my side
No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie
He said listen to me son while you still can
Run back home to that Southern land
Don't you see what life here has done to me?
Then he closed those old blue eyes
And fell limp against my side
No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie
I sang Dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang Dixie as he died
I sang Dixie as he died

Band PerryIf I Die Young - # ONE - 20102011 CMA Single of the Year 2011 CMA Song of the Year
If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh uh oh
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when
She stands under my colours, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well, I've had just enough time
If I die young bury me in satin.
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I've had just enough time
And I'll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I've never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I've had just enough time
So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done
A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'
If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh (uh oh)
The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I've had just enough time
So put on your best boys, and I'll wear my pearls

Oak Ridge Boys - I'll Be True To You - # ONE - 1978
They met upon a blue moon
And they parted on a cloudy day
They were so in love and out of school
But he was goin' so far, far away
She said: I'll be true to you
Even though you don't want me to
And I'll be blue for you
Even though you've asked me not to
Well the year's drifted by them, as we all know they can
He found other women, but she refused other men
But as fate would have it, they met again
She was on a down-hill slide, and he was just slidin' in
As he looked into her eyes that night, he never realized
The only real love in his life was passin' by
When he turned and left her there, his words, Goodbye
He heard her calling out to him, and as he walked, she cried
I've been true to you
Seems like speakin' to me is the least that you could do
And I've been blue for you
Even though you've asked me not to
She'd been drinkin way too hard one night
She'd been drinkin way too long
Alone and pale in a cheap hotel, she died there in the dawn
Kneelin' by her grave, oh so late and oh so wrong
He longed to hold her close again, cryin' on and on
He cried, I'll be true to you
After all that I have put you through
And I'll be blue for you
Though you never even asked me to

Vernon Dalhart - In The Baggage Coach Ahead - ZZZ
On a dark, stormy night, as the train rattled on
All the passengers had gone to bed
Except one young man with a babe in his arms
Who sat there with a bowed-down head

The innocent one began crying just then
As though its poor heart would break
One angry man said, Make that child stop its noise
For it's keeping all of us awake

Put it out, said another, don't keep it in here
We've paid for our berths and want rest
But never a word said the man with the child
As he fondled it close to his breast

Where is its mother? Go take it to her
This a lady then softly said
I wish I could was the man's sad reply
But she's dead in the coach ahead

While the train rolled onward, a husband sat in tears
Thinking of the happiness of just a few short years
For baby's face brings pictures of a cherished hope that's dead
But baby's cries can't waken her in the baggage coach ahead.

Wilf Carter (aka Montana Slim) - In The Blue Canadian Rockies - ZZZ
In the blue Canadian Rockies,
Spring is sighing through the trees,
And the golden poppies are blooming
Round the banks of Lake Louise.

Across the sea they call me,
And I'm lonesome and so blue
For the blue Canadian Rockies
And the boy I love so true.

Oh, how my lonesome heart is aching tonight
For the home I long to see!
Oh, what I'd give if I could be there tonight
With the sweetheart waiting for me!

In the blue Canadian Rockies,
Spring is sighing through the trees,
And the golden poppies are blooming
Round the banks of Lake Louise.

Across the sea they call me,
And I'm lonesome and so blue
For the blue Canadian Rockies
And the boy I love so true.
In the blue Canadian Rockies
Lives the boy I love so true.

Martina McBrideIndependence Day - 19941995 CMA Song of the Year
Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak.
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again
But daddy'd left the proof on her cheek.
And I was only eight years old that summer
And I always seemed to be in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town
On Independence Day.
Well ,word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man
But mama was proud and she stood her ground
But she knew she was on the losin' end.
Some folks whispered and some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out there was no one about
On Independence Day.
Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of reckoning.
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day.
Well, she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames
And took down some names
And send me to the county home.
Now I ain't sayin' it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way.
Talk about your revolution
It's Independence Day.
Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of reckoning.
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day.
Roll the stone away
It's Independence Day.

Eddy Arnold - Jim) I Wore a Tie Today - 1961
Jim, I did everything that I could
But your fever just wouldn't die down
So I tied your horse to the wagon bed
And last night I brought you to town.
But when I got there you were gone Jim
And there was nothin' nobody could do
I bought you a suit and a tie Jim
And today I wore one too.
Jim I wore a tie today
The first one that I ever wore
And you'd have said I looked like a dummy
Out of a dry goods store.
Jim they said a lot of things
But I don't know a thing they said
My mind kept wanderin' off down the trail
Back to the times that we've had.
And for gold on the cuff
We've done everything in the book I guess
And a lot they'd never thought up.
Well Jim, you're ridin' on ahead
I guess that's how it has be
But when you reach those streets paved with gold Jim
Stake a claim out for me...

Carrie Underwood - Just A Dream - # ONE - 2008
It was two weeks after the day she turned eighteen
All dressed in white, going to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat
Sixpence in her shoe
Something borrowed, something blue
And when the church doors opened up wide
She put her veil down trying to hide the tears
Oh she just couldn't believe it
She heard the trumpets from the military band
And the flowers fell out of her hands

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance.
Standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream
The preacher man said let us bow our heads and pray
Lord please lift his soul and heal this hurt
Then the congregation all stood up
And sang the saddest song that she ever heard
Then they handed her a folded up flag
And she held on to all she had left of him
Oh, and what could've been
And then guns rang one last shot
And it felt like a bullet in her heart

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance.
Standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
Oh I'll never know
It's like I'm looking from a distance.
Standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

Oh, this is just a dream
Just a dream, (yeah, yeah)

Merle Haggard - Kern River - 1985
I'll never swim Kern River again
It was there that I met her
It was there that I lost my best friend
And now I live in the mountains
I drifted up here with the wind
And I may drown in still water
But I'll never swim Kern River again
I grew up in an oil town
But my gusher never came in
And the river was a boundary
Where my darlin' and I use to swim
One night in the moonlight
The swiftness swept her live away
And now I live on Lake Shasta and
Lake Shasta is where I will stay
There's the South San Joaquin
Where the seeds of the dust bowl are found
And there's a place called Mount Whitney
From where the mighty Kern River comes down
Well, it's not deep nor wide
But it's a mean piece of water my friend
And I may cross on the highway
But I'll never swim Kern River again
I'll never swim Kern River again
It was there I first met her
It was there that I lost my best friend
And now I live in the mountains
I drifted up here with the wind
And I may drown in still water
But I'll never swim Kern River again
I'll never swim Kern River again
It was there I first met her
It was there that I lost my best friend
And now I live in the mountains
I drifted up here with the wind
And I may cross on the highway
But I'll never swim Kern River again

Jody Miller - Long Black Limousine - 1968
There's a long line of mourners driving down our little street
Their fancy cars are such a sight to see
They are all your rich friends who knew you in the city And now they-finally brought you home to me


The papers told how you lost your life
The party and the fatal crash that night
The rock on the highway, the curve you didn't see
And now you're in that long black limousine

When you left you told me some day you'd be returning

In a fancy car for all the world to see
Now everyone is watching; you finally got your dream
You're riding in a long black limousine

Through tear-dimmed eyes I watch as you ride by
A chauffeur at the wheel dressed so fine
I'll never love another, my heart and all my dreams

Go with you in that long black limousine.

Lefty Frizzell - The Long Black Veil - 1959
Ten years ago, on a cold, dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

She walks these hill in a long, black veil

She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

The judge said, Son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die.
I spoke not a word, although it meant my life
For I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife


She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

The scaffold is high, and eternity nears

She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind mourns
In a long black veil she cries over my bones

Marty Robbins - Lord You Gave Me A Mountain - ZZZ
Eddy Arnold - Mommy Please Stay Home With Me - ZZZ
A mother went out on a party
She left at home her baby son
He cried and begged her not to leave him
But she would not give up her fun
She kissed his cheek and tried to soothe him
But would not heed his childish plea
She heard him call as she was leaving
Please, Mommy, please stay home with me

The mother joined the merrymakers
And soon was lost in trifling joy
The mellow tunes and flitting shadows
Made her forget her baby boy
She danced and laughed and did some drinking
The world for her was full of glee
But now and then these words would haunt her
Please, Mommy, please stay home with me

The mother now her life would forfeit
To hear her baby's voice again
She grieves to think she rudely left him
To satisfy her wishes vain
Now mothers, don't neglect your duty
This story should a lesson be
Do not ignore your baby's pleading
Please, Mommy, please stay home with me.

Red Foley - Old Shep - ZZZ
When I was a lad and Old Shep was a pup
O'er hills and meadows we'd stray
Just a boy and his doggie, we were both full of fun
We grew up together that way

I remember the time at the old swimming hole
When I would've drowned without doubt
But Shep was right there, to the rescue he came
He jumped in and helped pull me out

As the years rolled on by, Old Shep, he grew old
His eyesight was fast growing dim
One day the doctor looked at him and said
I can't do no more for him, Jim

With a hand that was trembling, I picked up my gun
And I aimed it at Shep's faithful head
But I just couldn't do it, I wanted to run
And I wished that they'd shoot me instead

Old Shep looked at me, his eyes were so sad
While he laid his head on my knee
Then I stroked the best pal that I ever had
Yes, I cried till I scarce couldn't see

Old Sheppie, he knew he was going to go
For he reached out and licked at my hand
He looked up at me just as much as to say
We're parting, but you understand

Now Old Shep is gone where the good doggies go
And no more with Old Shep will I roam
But if dogs have a heaven, there's one thing
I know Old Shep has a wonderful home.

Ernest Tubb - Our Baby's Book - ZZZ
There's a new star in heaven tonight
The brightest of them all up there
As we gaze at the sky we wonder why
The Lord took our baby so fair

For be was as sweet as a rose
His eyes were so big, bright and blue
And it made me, so glad, they said
He favors his dad
And my wife said He's the image of you

Now you should see our baby's book
It's pink and it's bordered with gold
Though it's not complete, but on the first sheet
Our darling's life story is told

It tells of the day that he came
To add more joy to our home
After seven short weeks our Master did speak
And now Rodger Dale is gone

But I know that he's happy up there
I can vision each action and look
Friends, as you travel on, please remember this song
For it's written in our baby's book.

Seldom Scene - Out Among the Stars - ZZZ
Merle Haggard - Out Among the Stars - 1986
It's midnight at a liquor store in Texas.
Beneath the neon, close up's just begun.
When a boy walks in the door and points a pistol.
He can't find a job, but man, he's found a gun

But a change of heart before there's confrontation.
Let's the old man live and run out in the street.
But he knows that soon they'll come with guns a blazing.
And already he can feel a great relief

Oh how many travlers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
and fly like eagles out among the stars

He pictures the arrival of the cruisers.
Sees that old familiar anger in their eyes.
He knows that when they're shooting at this loser,
They'll be aiming at the deamons in their lives

Oh how many travlers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
and fly like eagles out among the stars

The evening news it carries all the details.
He dies in every living room in town.
And in his home a bottle's thrown in anger.
And his father cries, We'll never live this down

Oh how many travlers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
and fly like eagles out among the stars

Oh-Oh, and fly like eagles out among the stars.

Jim Reeves - Partners - 1959
Two partners went in search of gold
As friendly as could be
One was young and one was old
And the gay young fool was me

Since neighter one could write his name
We swore upon our souls
To share the wealth and then shook hands
The hands that dug for gold. (oh, partners)

The summer days were gone at last
And winter nights grew cold
The snow had trapped us in the pass
When we finally find the gold

We took our fortune to the shack
To wait the winter through
But the food ran low so I killed my friend
What else was there to do? (oh, partners)

I threw his body just outside
Into the bitter cold
Somehow I had to stay alive
I now had all the gold

But the howling wind just seemed to say
You have killed a man
And you'll never get to spend the gold
With the blood upon your hands. (oh, partners)

The cabin's covered now with snow
And shelves of food are bare
Satan's waitin' for me now
And I'm too cold to care

Is that the devil at the door
Coming for my soul
Or is it just the old man
A looking for his gold? (oh, partners)...

Roy Acuff - The Precious Jewel - ZZZ
Way back in the hills, when a boy
I once wandered Buried deep in her grave lies the girl that I love
She was called from this earth, a jewel for heaven
More precious than diamonds, more precious than gold

A jewel here on earth, a jewel in heaven
She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne
May the angels have peace, God bless her in heaven
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam

When a girl of sixteen, we courted each other,
She promised some day to become my sweet wife
I bought her the ring to wear on her finger
But the angels, they called her to heaven one night

This world has its wealth, its trials and troubles
Mother Earth holds her treasures of diamonds and gold
But it can't hold the soul of one precious jewel
She's resting in peace with the heavenly fold.

Precious mem'ries, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
And the sacred past unfold

Precious mem'ries, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold

Precious father, loving mother
Fly across the lonely years
And old home scenes of my childhood
In fond memory appear

In the stillness of the midnight
Echoes from the past I hear
Old-time singing, gladness bringing
From that lovely land somewhere

I remember mother praying
Father, too, on bended knee
Sun is sinking, shadows falling
But their pray'rs still follow me

As I travel on life's pathway
Know not what the years may hold
As I ponder, hope grows fonder
Precious mem'ries flood my soul.

Mother dear, come bathe my forehead
For I'm growing very weak
Let one drop of water, Mother
Fall upon my burning cheek.
Tell my loving little schoolmates
That I never more will play
Give them all my toys, but, Mother
Put my little shoes away!

I am going to leave you, Mother
So remember what I say
Do it, won't you please, dear Mother?
Put my little shoes away!
Santa Claus, he gave them to me
With a lot of other things
And I think he brought an angel
With a pair of golden wings

Then I, too, shall be an angel
By, perhaps, another day
So will you, then, dearest Mother
Put my little shoes away?

Soon the baby will grow larger
And they will fit his little feet
And he will be nice and cunning
As he walks upon the street!

I am tired now, dear Mother
So remember what I say
Do it, won't you please, dear Mother?
Put my little shoes away!

Dickey Lee - Rocky - # ONE - 1975
Alone until my eighteenth year, we met four springs ago
She was shy and had a fear, of things she did not know
But we got it on together in such a super way
We held each other close at night, and traded dreams each day
She said Rocky I've never been in love before, don't know if I can do it
But if you let me lean on you take my hand I might get through it, through it
I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free
And God knows if the world should end your love is safe with me
We found an old gray house, and you would not believe the way
We worked at night to fix it up, took classes in the day
Painting walls and sipping wine, sleeping on the floor
With so much love with just two, soon we found there'd be one more
And she said Rocky I've never had a baby before, don't know if I can do it
But if you let me lean on you, take my hand I might get through it, through it
I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free,
and God knows if the word should end your love is safe with me.
We had lots of problems then, but we had lots of fun
Like the birthday party, when our baby girl turned one
I was proud and satisfied, life had so much to give
Till the day they told me that she didn't have long to live
She said Rocky I never had to die before don't know if I can do it
Now it's back to two again my little girl and I
Who looks so much like her sweet mother, sometimes that makes me cry
I sleep alone at nights again, I walk alone each day
And sometimes when I'm about to give in, I hear her sweet voice say to me
Rocky you know you've been alone before, you know that you can do it
But if you'd like to lean on me, take my hand I'll help you through it, through it.
I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free
And God knows if the world should end, your love is safe with me
She said Rocky you know you've been alone before...

Sonny James - Running Bear - # ONE - 1969
On the bank of the river stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die
He couldn't swim the raging river 'cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach the Little White Dove waiting on the other side
In the moonlight he could see her throwing kisses 'cross the waves
Her little heart was beating faster waiting for her Indian brave
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die
Running Bear dove in the water, Little White Dove did the same
And they swam out to each other through the swirling stream they came
As their hands touched and their lips met, the raging river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together in their happy hunting ground
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Stonemans - The Sinking Of The Titanic - ZZZ
It was on a Monday morning, just about one o'clock
That the great Titanic began to reel and rock
Then the people began to cry, saying, Lord, I'm going to die
It was sad when that great ship went down

It was sad when that great ship went down
It was sad when that great ship went down
There were husbands and wives, little children lost their lives
It was sad when that great ship went down

When they were building the Titanic, they said what they could do
They were going to build a ship that the water could not go through
But God with His mighty hand showed the world it could not stand
It was sad when that great ship went down

When they left England, they were making for the shore
The rich declared they would not ride with the poor
So they sent the poor below, they were the first that had to go
It was sad when that great ship went down

When the boat was out sailing with men all around
God in heaven on His throne said that men should not drown
If you trust Him and obey, He will save you all today
It was sad when that great ship went down

The people on the ship were a long ways from home
With friends all around them, didn't know their time had come
For death came riding by, sixteen hundred had to die
It was sad when that great ship went down

When the Titanic was sinking, for decent people free
It was said they were singing, Nearer my God to thee
Nearer My God To Thee
When that great ship went down.

Hank William - Six More Miles (To the Graveyard) [Remastered 2016] - ZZZ
Oh, the rain is slowly fallin'
And my heart is so sore
Six more miles and leave my darling
Never on this earth to meet no more
Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles, long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darling
Leave the best friend, I ever had
Oh, I hear the train a-comin'
Bringin' my darlin' back home
Six more miles to the graveyard
And I'll be left here all alone
Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles, long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darling
Leave the best friend, I ever had
Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles, long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darling
Leave the best friend, I ever had

Mhm some folks drink and some folks smoke and some folks love and some folks don't
Some folks laugh and some folks frown folks hear then they gun you down
Goodbye John six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye John they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Some preach wrong and some preach right and some preach love and some preach fight
Takes every kind to make that world go round takes one to gun you down
Goodbye Martin six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye Reverend they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Some people stick pretty close to home others're born with that urge to roam
Welcome welcome to our town hope nobody tries to gun you down
Goodbye Bobby six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye Robert they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Goodbye John and goodbye Martin and goodbye Bobby
Well they took you away before you sang your song

Moon Mullican - Sweeter Than The Flowers - 1948
Just as far as I can remember
She'll remain the, rose of my heart
Mama took sick along in December
February brought us broken hearts

The reason we've not called a family reunion
We know that she wouldn't be there
But since we've thought it all over, Mama
We know that your spirit is there

Oh, no, I can't forget the hours
You're the onliest one, Mom, and sweeter, than the flowers
Oh, no, there's no need to bother
To speak of you now would only hurt father

Well, it looked so good to see us together
But I had to look after dad
Oh, no, Mama, when I passed by your coffin
I didn't want to remember you dead

They all gathered 'round, I stared at their faces
All heads were bowed mighty low
But that was one time we all had to face it
Though it hurt us so bad, you know

Oh, no, Mama, we'll never forget you
And someday we'll meet you up there.

Ray Peterson - Tell Laura I Love Her - ZZZ
Laura and Tommy were lovers
He wanted to give her everything
Flowers, presents and most of all, a wedding ring
He saw a sign for a stock car race
A thousand dollar prize it read
He couldn't get Laura on the phone
So to her mother Tommy said
Tell Laura I love her, tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura I may be late
I've something to do, that cannot wait
He drove his car to the racing grounds
He was the youngest driver there
The crowed roared as they started the race
'Round the track they drove at a deadly pace
No one knows what happened that day
How his car overturned in flames
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck
With his dying breath, they heard him say
Tell Laura I love her, tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura not to cry
My love for her will never die
And in the chapel where Laura prays
For Tommy who passed away
It was just for Laura he lived and died
Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry
Tell Laura I love her, tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura not to cry
My love for her will never die
Tell Laura I love her

Jimmy Wakely - There's An Empty Cot In The Bunkhouse Tonight - ZZZ
There's a cot unused in the bunkhouse tonight;
There's a pinto's head bending low.
His spurs and chaps hang on the wall,
Limpy's gone where the good cowboys go.
There's a range for every cowboy
Where the foreman takes care of his own;
There'll be an empty saddle tonight,
But he's happy up there I know.
He was riding the range last Saturday noon
When a norther had started to blow;
With his head in his chest, heading into the west
He was stopped by a cry soft and low.
A crazy young calf had strayed from its maw
And was lost in the snow and the storm
It lay in a heap at the end of the draw
Huddled all in a bunch to keep warm.
Limpy hobbled its feet, tossed it over his horse
And headed for the shack,
But the wind got cold and the snow it piled p
And poor Limpy he strayed from the track.
He arrived three in the morning
And put the young maverick to bed
Then he flopped in his bunk unable to move
This morning old Limpy was dead.

There's an empty cot in the bunkhouse tonight
There's a pinto's head bendin' low
His spurs and chaps hang on the wall
Limpy's gone where the good cowboys go.
There's a range for every cowboy
Who shows he has this kind of love,
And someday he'll ride his pinto again
Up there on that that range above.

Dixie Chicks - Travelin' Soldier - 2003
Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army green
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she give him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me, I'm feeling a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go
So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I've got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home
So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love and all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's gettin' kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home
One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For a listed local Vietnam dead
Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
A soldier's coming
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letters says
A soldier's coming home

Vernon Dalhart - We Sat Beneath The Maple On The Hill - ZZZ
Near a quiet country village grows a maple on the hill
There I sat with my Jennetta long ago
When the stars were shining brightly and we- heard the whippoorwill
Then we vowed to love each other ever more

We would sing love songs together when the birds had gone to rest
And would listen to the murmurs of the rill
Then I'd fold my arms around her, lay my head upon her breast
When we sat beneath the maple on the hill

We are getting old and feeble, yet the stars are shining bright
And we listen to the murmur of the rill
Will you always love me, darling, as you did those starry nights
When we sat beneath the maple on the hill?

Don't forget me, little darling, when they've laid me down to rest
'Tis a little wish, oh darling, grant I crave
When you linger there in sadness, thinking, darling, of the past
Let your tears kiss the flowers on my grave

I will soon be with the angels on that bright and peaceful shore
Even now I hear them coming o'er the rill
So goodbye, my little darling, for my time has come to go
I must leave you and the maple on the hill.

Joey + Rory - When I'm Gone - 2015
A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fog that weighs you down
In spite of all the funeral songs
The birds will make their joyful sounds
You'll wonder why the earth still moves
You'll wonder how you'll carry on
But you'll be okay on that first day when I'm gone
Dusk will come with fireflies and whippoorwill and cricket's call
And every star will take its place
In silvery gown and purple shawl
You'll lie down in our big bed
Dread the dark and dread the dawn
But you'll be alright on that first night when I'm gone
You will reach for me in vain
You'll be whispering my name
As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so alien
But life will call with daffodils
And morning glorious blue skies
You'll think of me some memory
And softly smile to your surprise
And even though you love me still
You will know where you belong
Just give it time, we'll both be fine
When I'm gone

Michael Martin Murphey - Wildfire - ZZZ
She comes down from Yellow Mountain
On a dark, flat land she rides
On a pony she named Wildfire
With a whirlwind by her side
On a cold Nebraska night
Oh, they say she died one winter
When there came a killing frost
And the pony she named Wildfire
Busted down its stall
In a blizzard he was lost
She ran calling Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
By the dark of the moon I planted
But there came an early snow
There's been a hoot-owl howling by my window now
For six nights in a row
She's coming for me, I know
And on Wildfire we're both gonna go
We'll be riding Wildfire
Riding Wildfire
Riding Wildfire
On Wildfire we're gonna ride
Gonna leave sodbustin' behind
Get these hard times right on out of our minds
Riding Wildfire

Roy Acuff) - Willie Roy The Crippled Boy - ZZZ
His age is seven years today
He don't know what it is to play
Each night, before he goes to bed
This little prayer he's always said:

Now I lay me down to rest Please,
Mom, please give me happiness
I'm praying so my dreams come true
So I can walk and play with you

His name, they call him Willie Roy
He's just a little crippled boy
But now the tears roll down his checks
I rub them off so he can sleep. -

Someday I hope you can go out
And play with me and walk about
But I won't scold if you should cry
So, son, be good, my son, goodnight.

Mark Wills - Wish You Were Here - # ONE - 1999
They kissed goodbye at the terminal gate
She said, You're gonna be late if you don't go
He held her tight, said, I'll be alright
I'll call you tonight to let you know
He bought a postcard, on the front it just said Heaven
With a picture of the ocean and the beach
And the simple words he wrote her
Said he loved her and they told her
How he'd hold her if his arms would reach
Wish you were here, wish you could see this place
Wish you were near, I wish I could touch your face
The weather's nice, it's paradise
It's summertime all year and there's some folks we know
They say, Hello, I miss you so, wish you were here
She got a call that night but it wasn't from him
It didn't sink in right away, ma'am the plane went down
Our crews have searched the ground
No survivors found she heard him say
But somehow she got a postcard in the mail
That just said Heaven with a picture of the ocean and the beach
And the simple words he wrote her
Said he loves and they told her
How he'd love her if his arms would reach
Wish you were here, wish you could see this place
Wish you were near, I wish I could touch your face
The weather's nice, it's paradise
It's summertime all year and there's some folks we know
They say, Hello, I miss you so, wish you were here
The weather's nice, in paradise
It's summertime all year and all the folks we know
They say, Hello, I miss you so, wish you were here
Wish you were here

Verno Dalhart - Wreck of Numer Nine - ZZZ
On a cold and stormy night, not a star was in sight
And the cold north wind came howling down the line
With his sweetheart so dear, stood a brave engineer
With his orders to pull old Number Nine

She kissed him goodbye with a tear in her eye
For the joy in her heart she would not hide
For the whole world seemed right when she told him that night
That tomorrow she'd be his blushing bride

Oh the wheels rolled along, and the train hummed a song
And the black smoke came pouring from the stack
I-Es headlight a-gleam seemed to brighten his dream
For tomorrow he'd be a-comin' back

He spun around the hill, and his brave heart stood still
For a headlight was shining in his face
He whispered a prayer as he threw on the air
For he knew this would be his final race

In the wreckage he was found lying there on the ground
And he asked them to lift his weary head
As his breath slowly went was the message he sent
To the maiden he thought he was to wed:

There's a little white house that I bought for our own
And I thought we'd be happy by and by
But I'll leave it to you, for I know you'll be true
Till we meet at the Golden Gate; goodbye.

Stonemans - Wreck Of The Old '97' - ZZZ
On one cloudless morning, I stood on the mountain
Just watching the smoke from below
It was coming from a tall, slim smokestack
'Way down on the Southern Railroad

It was Ninety-Seven, the fastest train
Ever run on the Southern Line
All the freight trains and pass'gers take the side for Ninety-Seven
For she's bound to be at stations on time

They gave him his orders at Monroe, Virginia Saying
Stevie, you're away behind time
This is not Thirty-Eight, but it's Old Ninety-Seven
You must put her into Spencer on time

He looked around and said to his black, greasy fireman
Just shovel in a little more coal
And when I cross that ole White Oak Mountain
You can just watch Old Ninety-Seven roll

It's a mighty rough road from Lynchburg to Danville
And the line is on a three-mile grade
It was on that grade that he lost his average
And you see what a jump that he made

He was going down grade, making ninety miles an hour
When his whistle began to scream
He was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle
He was scalded to death with the steam

Did she ever pull in? No, she never pulled in.
And at one forty-five he was due
For hours and hours there's a switchman been waiting
For that fast mail that never pulled through

Did she ever pull in? No, she never pulled in.
And that poor boy, he must be dead
Oh, yonder he lays on that railroad track
With the car wheels over his head

Ninety-Seven, she was the fastest train
That the South had ever seen
But she run so fast on that Sunday morning
That the death score was numbered fourteen.

Now, ladies, you must take warning
From this time now and on
Never speak hard words to your true, loving husband
He may leave you and never return.

Roy Acuff) - Wreck On The Highway - # ONE - ZZZ
Who did you say it was, brother?
Who was it fell by the way?
When whiskey and blood ran together
Did you hear anyone pray?

I didn't hear nobody pray, dear brother
I didn't hear nobody pray
I heard the crash on the highway
But I didn't hear nobody pray

When I heard the crash on the highway
I knew what it was from the start
I went to the scene of destruction
A picture was stamped on my heart

The whiskey and blood ran together
Mixed up with the glass where they lay
Death lay her hand in destruction
But I didn't hear no one pray

I wish I could change this sad story
That I am now telling you
But there is no way I can change it
Somebody's life is now through

Their soul has been called by the Master
They died in a crash on the way
I heard the groans of the dying
But I didn't hear no one pray.

Bob Wills - Across The Alley From The Alamo - ZZZ
Across the alley from the Alamo
Lived a pinto pony and a Navajo
Who sang a sort of Indian Hideho
To the people passing by

The pinto spent his time a swichin' flies
And the Navajo watched the lazy skies
And very rarely did they ever rest their eyes
On the people passing by

One day they went a walkin'
Along the railroad track
They were swishin' not lookin'
Toot toot
They never came back

Across the alley from the Alamo
When the summer sun decides to settle low
A fly sings an indian Hideho
To the people passing by

Across the alley from the Alamo
Lived a pinto pony and a Navajo
Who used to bake frijoles in cornmeal dough
To the people passing by

They thought that they would make some easy bucks
If they're washin' their frijoles in Duz and Lux
A pair of very conscientious clucks
On the people passing by

The they took this cheap vacation
Their shoes were polished bright
No they never heard the whistle
Toot toot
They're clear out of sight

Across the alley from the Alamo
When the starlight beams its tender tender glow
The beams go to sleep and there ain't no dough
For the people passing by

Mac McClintock - Ain't We Crazy - ZZZ

Now, I know a little ditty, it's as crazy as can be
The guy who wrote it said he wanted it, and handed it to me
I found I couldn't use it, because it sounded blue
And that's the very reason why I'm handing it to you

It's a song the alligators sing, while coming through the rye
As they serenade the elephants, up in the trees so high
The iceman hums this ditty, as he shovels in the coal
And the monkeys join the chorus, up around the northern pole

Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
This is the way we pass the time away
Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
We're going to sing this song all night today

It was midnight on the ocean, not a streetcar was in sight
And the sun was shining brightly, for it rained all day that night
'Twas a summer night in winter, and the rain was snowing fast
And a barefoot boy with shoes on stood a-sitting in the grass

It was evening, and the rising sun was setting in the west
The little fishes in the trees were huddled in their nests
The rain was pouring down and the moon was shining bright
And everything that you could see was hidden out of sight

While the organ peeled potatoes, lard was rendered by the choir
The sexton rung the dishrag, someone set the church on fire
Holy smoke! The preacher shouted, in the rain he lost his hair
Now his head resembles heaven, for there is no parting there

The cows were making cowslips, and the bells were ringing wet
And the bumblebees were making bums, and smoking cigarettes
And a man slept in a stable, and came out a little hoarse
So he hopped upon his golf sticks, and drove all around the course

Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
This is the way we pass the time away
Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
We're goin' to sing this song all night today

It was midnight on the ocean, not a horsecar was in sight
As I stepped into the drugstore, to get myself a light
The man behind the counter, was a woman old and gray
Who used to peddle shoestrings, on the road to Mandalay.

Good evening, sir, the woman said, and her eyes were bright with tears
As she put her head beneath her feet, and stood that way for years
Her children, six, were orphans, except one tiny tot
Who lived in a house across the street above a vacant lot

Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
But this is the way we pass the time away
Ain't we crazy, ain't we crazy
We're going to sing this song all night today

Bellamy Brothers - Almost Jamaica - ZZZ

She was born in Dakota
Where she froze to death each winter
But she dreamed about the islands
By the fire burning splendour.
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
So she moved down on the border
With the sunshine but no seaweed
Though she could not drink the water
Some of the streets were lined with palm trees
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
Electric fan on the table
Shower is her waterfall
She may never have Jamaica
But in her mind she has it all.
And it was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
She loved their hurricane warnings
And the tropical breeze
She loves coconuts and love songs
With a little reggae breeze.
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.
It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice.

It was almost Jamaica
Almost paradise
It was almost Jamaica
It was almost real nice...

In this game you've got eighteen holes
To shoot your best somehow
Where have all my divots gone
I'm in the back nine now
I got to move on down to that next fairway
Up to that flapping flag
There's a storm formin' overhead
I got to shoulder up that bag

Shoulder up that bag
Shoulder up that bag
Got to move on down to that next fairway
Up to that flapping flag

I used to tote my daddy's bag
When I was a boy
I saw him sweat and I heard him swear
But sometimes he'd whoop for joy
Golf clubs are made of wood and iron
No, no, no, they are not magic wands
And balls fall into sand traps
And balls drop into ponds

Balls drop into ponds
Balls drop into ponds
Golf clubs are made of wood and iron
No they are not magic wands

I'm walkin' around with these spiked shoes on
Oh it feels a little obscene
Mother nature with a manicure
Up here on this green
Oh I don't know about you but I got to have me a few
When we get to that clubhouse bar
It's my reward for this scorecard
I'm way over par

I'm way over par
I'm way over par
I don't know about you
I got to drink me few
When we get to that clubhouse bar

In this game you got eighteen holes
To shoot your best somehow
Where have all my divots gone

Sue Thompson - Big Mable Murphy - ZZZ

Way back in '29 somewhere in Coffeeville
Was a honky tonk named Big Mable Murphy's
She had a sweetheart named Little Melvin
And hair would fly between them every night
They say Little Melvin got wild on bathub gin
Cause it made him grow to almost twice his size
He'd try to take over and sass Big Mable
And her great big fist would black Little Melvin's eyes
Big Mable Murphy she loved Little Melvin
But he never did learn to do just what she said
Cause poor Little Melvin woke up every morning
With two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head
Then late one rainy night Scarface Mouzziola
Came in and started shoving folks around
Big Mable Murphy was back in the kitchen
So just for fun he shot Little Melvin down
Early next morning down by the river
Scarface Mouzziola was found real short of breath
They say that Scarface had died from a whoopin'
He had two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head
Big Mable Murphy's place raved on until she died
And they say sometimes a tear would fill her eye
And then she'd whisper Lord I'd give anything
If once more I could black Little Melvin's eyes

Jud Strunk - Biggest Parakeeteets In Town - ZZZ

While others see what's cooking
In antique books and lamps.
Some hobbies are like slavery,
There's one too tough for words.
This girl has got an aviary,
And you should see her birds...

She's got chanticleers and dickey birds,
Intelligent and tricky birds,
That make the boys all want to hang around.
Her crow is black and shiny,
Her hummingbirds are tiny,
But she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

She's got cockatoos and bobolinks,
In royal blue and dusty pinks,
And you should see them hangin' upside down.
Oh, it's thrilling to behold her,
When she wings them past her shoulder,
'Cause she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

And every night
When she gets into bed,
She puts each one on a pillow.
Oh, they sound like Bing,
When they start to sing,
'Tweet willow, tweet willow, tweet willow.'

After holding them and petting them,
She gets a thrill in letting them,
Go swingin' from the ceiling to the ground.
Ask anyone who's seen 'em.
It's hard to choose between 'em.
'Cause she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

Imagine her in love one day,
As she tells her fiance, Okay!
On the day the wedding rolls around.
Although he loves the ground she stands on,
He can't wait to get his hands on,
The biggest parakeets in town.

Well, picture on their wedding night,
When hubby, dear, turns off the light,
And wakes in the mornin' with a frown...
As he goes to caress her,
He sees them on the dresser...
The biggest parakeets in town!
(She's really got 'em, boy! )
The biggest parakeets in town!
(They're enormous! )

Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is a joker that's a-tryin' to steal my baby (he's a bird dog)
Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he's a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own
Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)
Well he's the teachers pet now (he's a dog)
What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he's a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own
He's bird...

John Denver - Blow Up Your TV (Spanish Pipe Dream) - ZZZ

She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
Well she pressed her chest against me
About the time the juke box broke
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
And these are the words she spoke
Blow up your TV throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own
Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do
Blow up your TV throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own
Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
I said 'You must know the answer.'
'She said, 'No but I'll give it a try.'
And to this very day we've been livin' our way
And here is the reason why
We blew up our TV threw away our paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
They all found Jesus on their own

Well it's one for the money, two for the show

Jimmie Rodgers & Louis Daniel Armstrong - Blue Yodel Number 9 - ZZZ

Standing on the corner, I didn't mean no harm
When a police come, he took me by the arm
It Was down in Memphis, corner of Beale and Main
Said 'hey big boy, you better tell me your name'
[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee

I said 'you'll find my name on the back of my shirt
I'm a Tennessee hustler and I don't have to work'
Come all you rounders, leave my woman alone
I'll take my special and run all you rounders home

[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee

My good girl love me, everybody knows
Spent a hundred cash dollars to buy me a suit of clothes.
She come to the joint, a forty-four in each hand
She said 'step aside all you women and men 'cause I'm looking for my man'

[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee

A Frank Willis - Bobbit Song (live) - ZZZ

Oh, my wife's name is Lorena
And you really shoulda seen her
She is beautiful is what I always said
My name is John Wayne Bobbitt
I work hard at my job
It was my right to have a little fun in bed
She wasn't in the mood then
And I must've gotten rude then
And I guess I got a little out of line
I was finished; I was sleeping
When Lorena came in creeping
And she took something important that was mine
Yes, my angry little wifey
Took her little kitchen knifey
And she did a little homemade surgery
She took the knife I bought her
She made me a little shorter
And she took off with the very best of me
She jumped into her Toyota
She took off with my promoter
And she knew how much I missed her when she'd gone
Then Lorena told a coppy
Where she'd flung my little floppy
And a very kindly doctor sewed it on
I got back my little buddy
It's my little understudy
And it's going to work, according to reports
But it cowers and it cringes
And it's tender round the hinges
So I guess I'd better keep it in my shorts

Kenny Chesney - The Boys of Fall - # ONE - ZZZ

When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
I'm back in my helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle, listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall
They didn't let just anybody in that club
Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood
To get to wear those game-day jerseys down the hall
The kings of the school, man, we're the boys of fall
Well it's turn to face the stars and stripes
It's fighting back them butterflies
It's call it in the air, alright
Yes sir, we want the ball
And it's knocking heads and talking trash
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
It's I got your number, I got your back
When your back's against the wall
You mess with one man, you got us all
The boys of fall
In little towns like mine, that's all they've got
Newspaper clippings fill the coffee shops
The old men will always think they know it all
Young girls will dream about the boys of fall
Well it's turn and face the stars and stripes
It's fighting back them butterflies
It's call it in the air, alright
Yes sir, we want the ball
And it's knocking heads and talking trash
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
It's I got your number, I got your back
When your back's against the wall
You mess with one man, you got us all
The boys of fall
Well it's turn and face the stars and stripes
It's fighting back them butterflies
It's call it in the air, alright
Yes sir, we want the ball
And it's knocking heads and talking trash
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
It's I got your number, I got your back
When your back's against the wall
You mess with one man, you got us all

We're the boys of fall
We're the boys of fall
We're the boys of fall
We're the boys of fall

Delmore Brothers - Brown's Ferry Blues - ZZZ

Hard luck poppa can't stand his ground
He was a good poppa but he's down
Lord lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Hard luck poppa standing in the rain
If the world was corn he couldn't buy grain
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues

Hard luck poppa counting his toes
You can smell his feet wherever he goes
Lord Lord. got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Hard luck poppa can't do his stuff
The trouble with him he's been too rough
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues

Two old maids playing in the sand
Each one wishing that the other was a man
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Two old maids done lost their style
If you want to be lucky you got to smile
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues

Early to bed and early to rise
And your girl goes out with other guys
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
If you don't believe me try it yourself
Well I tried it and I got left
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues

I gotta gal in Cumberland Gap
She's gotta boy that calls me Pap
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues
I don't smoke and I don't chew
And I don't go with the gals that do
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues

I wanna go home but there ain't no use
For the jailer man he won't turn me loose
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues
Had a good time when I was free
But I let the wrong thing get the best of me
Lord Lord got them Browns Ferry Blues

Chris Cagle - Chicks Dig It - 2003
Hey y'all.. watch this
Daddy's belt, momma's drapes
Standin' tall on the backyard shed
Lookin' cool in my superman cape
I told the the neighborhood girl
Say hey y'all watch this
My fate was a broken arm
My reward one big kiss
When daddy asked me why I did it
I made him laugh out loud when I told him
'Cause the chicks dig it

Scars heal, glory fades
And all we're left with are the memories made
Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Yeah life is short so go on and live it
'Cause the chicks dig it

Black top road
Learner permit
Thought I was Earnhardt
Drivin' fast but I didn't see the ditch
Took out a mailbox, then a fence and then a barn
The police came and called my father
But I met the farmer's daughter
And when the judge asked me why I did it
He threw the book at me when I told him
'Cause the chicks dig it

Scars heal, glory fades
And all we're left with are the memories made
Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Yeah life is short so go on and live it
'Cause the chicks dig it

Just throw caution to the wind my friend
Then sit back and watch your life begin, ' cause

Scars heal, glory fades
And all we're left with are the memories made
Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Yeah life is short so go on and live it
'Cause the chicks dig it

Scars heal, glory fades
And all we're left with are the memories made
Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Yeah life is short so go on and live it
It don't matter if you lose or if you win it
Hey the chicks dig it
The chicks dig it
The chicks dig it
The chicks dig it

Alan Jackson - Country Boy - # ONE - 2009
Excuse me ma'am, I saw you walk in
I turned around, I'm not a stalker
Where you going? Maybe I can help you
My tank is full, and I'd be obliged to take you
I'm a country boy, I've got a 4-wheel drive
Climb in my bed, I'll take you for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get you where you need to go
'cause I'm a country boy
You sure look good, sittin' in my right seat
Buckle up, I'll take you through the five speeds
Wind it up, or I can slow it way down
In the woods or right uptown
I'm a country boy, I've got a 4-wheel drive
Climb in my bed, I'll take you for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get you where you need to go
'cause I'm a country boy
Big 35's whinin' on the asphalt
Grabbin' mud, and slingin' up some red dirt
'cause I'm a country boy
My muffler's loud, dual Thrush tubes
I crank the music, the tone gets real good
Let me know when we're gettin' close
You can slide on out, or we can head on down the road
I'm a country boy, I've got a 4-wheel drive
Climb in my bed, I'll take you for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get you where you need to go
'cause I'm a country boy
Bucket seats, soft as baby's new butt
Lockin' hubs, that'll take you through a deep rut
I'm a country boy, I've got a 4-wheel drive
Climb in my bed, I'll take you for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get you where you need to go
'cause I'm a country boy
I'm a country boy, I've got a 4-wheel drive
Climb in my bed, I'll take you for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get you where you need to go
'cause I'm a country boy

She was looking at shoes on Amazon
Her papa bad said find anyone
She thought about the first boy that she loved
Just a couple clicks and there he was
That night she sent a friend request
The next day she sat down at her desk
And four simple words Hey, how you been?
And she felt seventeen again
And that's the thing about Facebook friends
It doesn't matter how long it's been
Someone you never thought you'd ever see again
And suddenly you're Facebook friends
They started out just catching up
That led to meeting him for lunch
For long they're meeting in some bar
And for long they're kissing in some car
And that's the thing about Facebook friends
It doesn't matter how long it's been
Someone you never thought you'd ever see again
And suddenly you're Facebook friends
Oh if there was anybody else
She be sittin' in judgement
Thinking they should be ashamed of themselves
For God's sakes you've got a husband and a minivan
And this was not part of a plan
She fantasized they'd start a new life
That he'd finally up and leave his wife
But one day she turned her laptop on
And his whole profile page was gone
And that's the thing about Facebook friends

Well, the first time we met dear, you flashed that come on smile
Your steamy eyed glances nearly drove me wild
So we drove out to the country and parked beneath the stars
When you fogged up my windshield and set my soul afire

Well, you moved into my place that very same night
I was so happy it was love at first sight

But one day I came home early the very next week
Found a man in my closet said he's playing hide and seek
Now I may be stupid but I'll never understand
Why he was playing hide and seek with all his clothes in his hand

So get your feet off of my table get shoes from under my bed
Get your hat off of my hat rack, put it on your head
Get your coat out of my closet, put it on your back
Get your Ferlin Husky records, darlin', it's time for you to pack

Get your arms from around me - it ain't no use to try
Get your tongue out of my mouth 'cause I'm kissing you goodbye

Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - and wipe off that silly grin
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - ain't no telling where it's been
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - don't try that again
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth...
Get your tongue... Git yer tongue outta my mouf!

Lets just say adios with a kiss and a sigh
Get your tongue outta my mouth 'cause I'm kissing you goodbye

Well the flame has flickered and the passion has cooled
I hate to lose you darling but I won't be fooled
'Cause you just can't be true dear, you're spreading it around
You've shattered all that mattered, gonna have to put you down

Get your dog outta my dog house, your cat outta my tree
Get your bird outta my bird cage, I'm settin' you free
Get your toothbrush outta ma bathroom, your stockins off my line
Get your curlers off offa dresser, darlin', you ain't no friend of mine

Get your arms from around me - I won't believe your lies
Get your tongue outta my mouth, 'cause I'm kissin' you goodbye

Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - and wipe off that silly grin
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - ain't no telling where it's been
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth - don't try that again
Get your tongue... Outta my mouth...
Get your tongue... Git yer tongue outta my mouf!

Lets just say adios with a kiss and a sigh
Get your tongue outta of my mouth, 'cause I'm kissin' you goodbye!

Get your tongue out of my mouth
Come on now!

Del Reeves - Girl On The Billboard - # ONE - 1965
Doo da doo doo doo doo da doo doo doo
Who is the girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
Rolling down the highway in my Jimmy hauling freight
From Chicago to St Louis Lord I see her every day
A double clutching weasel like me can hardly ever get a girl to look at him that way
Like the girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
Well what a girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
I bet it wouldn't take her very long to be gone
If someone would pull a dirty trick and take her hot pants away
I slow my Jimmy down to twenty that's how many wrecks I see there every day
Caused by the girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
A doo da doo doo doo doo da doo doo doo
Doggone that girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
Sleepy headed painter said the girl wasn't real better get the (kwee) on my way
On Route 66 from the billboard to Chicago
You'll find tiny pieces of my heart scattered every which a way
Shattered by the girl wearing nothing but a smile
And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway
A doo da doo doo doo doo da doo doo doo dee da dee dee doo

Minnie Pearl - How To Catch A Man - ZZZ
Now if a handsome feller smiles at you
What harm can a little flirtin' do?
And if he steals a kiss, why don't get sore
Remember honey, you've got plenty more

Oh, how to catch a man, how to catch a man
Girls are always askin' me, how do you catch a man?
Catch him while you can with the Minnie Pearl plan
Here's a little tip on how to catch a man:
Hog tie him! (Clobber him!) (Get a bear trap!)

Tell him this and keep a straight face, hon
Tell him two can live as cheap as one
Agree with everything, 'cause you will find
That once you're married, you can change your mind

And if you should want him for your very own
Don't let pappy talk to him alone
Tell him he's great, and give his heart a thrill
'Cause if you don't, some other female will

If he likes blondes, and you're a dark brunette
Now there's a certain bottle that you oughta get
And if you're thin, then add some paddin' too'
Football players do it, why can't you?

I stepped outta the shower and I got a good look at myself
Pot-bellied, bald-headed, well I thought I was somebody else
I caught my reflection in the mirror on the back of the bathroom door
I just don't look good naked anymore
So I'm goin' upstairs and turn my bedroom mirror to the wall
I hung it there back when I was trim and tall
Why I'd stand there and smile and flex and scrunch until my arm got sore
I just don't look good naked anymore

I used to go out with the girls, I loved them one and all
Now they don't get very close to me, afraid that I might fall
I went to see my doctor for my annual medical exam
Standin' there in the buff, when suddenly, he said Ben!
I said, What is doc, some fatal disease? Then I need to know the score.
He said, No. You just don't look good naked anymore

But me and Mona had a dancing style, the folks said it was unique
Now it's only when we're back to back, we're dancin' cheek-to--cheek
I went down to a nude beach for some seaside fun
Stretched out in my birthday suit soakin' up the sun
Then somebody yelled, There's an old white whale, washed up on the shore.
Sure, I (E) just don't look good naked anymore
Yeah, my heart just fell, my waist went to hell and my butt is dragging the floor
I just don't look good naked anymore

Stuart Hamblen - I Won't Go Huntin' With You Jake (But I'll Go Chasin' Women) - 1950
It's springtime in the mountains and I'm full of mountain dew
Can't even read my catalog like I used to do
I'm settin' in that little shed that's right behind the house
And there come Jake with all of his hounds, and he's gonna hear me shout:

I won't go huntin' with you, Jake, but I'll go chasin' women
Go put the hounds back in the pens and quit your silly grinnin'
The moon is bright, and I'm half tight; my life is just beginnin'
I won't go huntin' with you, Jake, but I'll go chasin' women

Let's go down to the meetin' house and wait till they start home
Them gals that come from Possum Creek we'll always leave alone
We'll run them down the corn rows, them sassy little misses
We'll scare them pretty gals to death; we'll stop and throw them kisses

Go wash your face and comb your hair, it's dang near time to start
But let me tell you 'fore we go, there's one that's got my heart
Don't chase that gal with the yaller hair and wears a dress of green
For that little gal belongs to me; I know she's past sixteen

I was headin' for the general store, when a silly thing I seen
They make 'em in the city, and it's called a magazine
I turned to page thirty-two, and look at what I found
Them gals wear clothes that we ain't seen beneath them gingham gowns.

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat
Now if I were Roy Rogers
I'd sure enough be single
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
It'd just be me and Trigger
We'd go ridin' through them movies
And we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail
And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat
And now the mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said, 'Kemo sabe
Kiss my ass I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea'
And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Said me upon my pony on my boat
And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
Well I'd come and go whenever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony
On my boat out on the sea
And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat
I said me upon my pony on my boat

Now, you're lookin' at a man that's gettin' kinda mad
I had a lot a luck but it's all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive
My fishin' pole's broke, the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive
My distant uncle passed away
And left me quite a batch
And I was livin' high until the fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn't born, I was only hatched
Everything's agin me and it's got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probably drown
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive
These shabby shoes I'm wearin' all the time
Is full of holes and nails
And brother, if I stepped on worn-out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails
I'm not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
'Cause nothin's ever gonna be alright no-how
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you
And the tears in my ears, they're off the beaten track since you said It's goodbye, we are through

So if I get water on the brain you will know you are the one who is to blame
I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you

I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you
I've been cryin' these tears and soakin' in my sack since the day I found you were untrue
And if I don't get up purty soon I'll turn into a sleepy lagoon
I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you

I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you
It's been so many years, my sacroiliac feels as though it's been soaked through and through
Oh, you lied when you said we'd take the plunge now I know how it feels to be a sponge
I've got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you.

Hank Williams - Jambalaya - # ONE - 1952
Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me-oh, my-oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me-oh, my-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and crawfish pie and filet gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chere amie-oh
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Thibadeaux, Fonteneaux, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolks come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style and go hog wild, me-oh, my-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Settle down far from town, get me a piroque
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou
Swap my mon' to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Reno & Smiley - Jimmy Caught the Dickens - ZZZ
Burl Ives - Jimmy Crack Corn [Blue Tail Fly] - ZZZ
I've heard it said
That this song was a favourite
Of that very famous and great American
Abraham Lincoln
When I was young, I used to wait
On master and give him his plate
And pass him the bottle when he got dry
And brush away the blue tail fly
Jimmy, crack corn, I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
My master's gone away
And when he'd ride in the afternoon
I'd follow after, with a hickory broom
The pony being rather shy
When bitten by blue tail fly
Jimmy, crack corn, I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
My master's gone away
One day, he ride around the farm
The flies so numerous, they did swarm
One chanced to bite him on the thigh
The devil take the blue tail fly
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
My master's gone away
The pony run, he jumped, he pitch
He threw my master in the ditch
He died and the jury wondered why
The verdict was the blue tail fly
Jimmy, crack corn, I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
My master's gone away
They lay him under a 'simmon tree
His epitaph is there to see
Beneath this stone, I'm forced to lie
Victim of the blue tail fly
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
My master's gone away

Hoyt Axton - Joy to the World - ZZZ
Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Singin'
{Refrain}
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me
If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars
And make sweet love to you
Sing it now
{Refrain}
You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I'm a high night flier and a rainbow rider
And a straight-shootin' son of a gun
I said a straight-shootin' son of a gun

Hank Williams - Kaw-Liga - # ONE - 1953
Kaw-liga was a wooden Indian standing by the door
He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show
So she could never answer yes or no

Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he never got a kiss
Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he don't know what he missed
Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-liga, that poor ol' wooden head

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped some day he'd talk
Kaw-liga, too stubborn to ever show a sign
Because his heart was made of knotty pine

Kaw-liga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere
I-Es heart was set on the Indian maid with the coal black hair
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show
So she could never answer yes or no

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
And took her, oh, so far away but ol' Kaw-liga stayed
Kaw-liga just stands there as lonely as can be
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.

Stanley Brothers - Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me - ZZZ
Bill Johnson was a feller, that believed in Haints and Sights
He used to dream about 'em, when he went to bed at night
And when he'd dream about 'em, you could nearly always tell
He'd just pull back the covers, he'd jump right out and yell.

Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
I don't mind them naked bones
I can stand that hollow groan ...
But, Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me.

Bill went to see the doctor, had a misery in his chest
The doctor looked at him and said take off your coat and vest
He started tappin' on his ribs, which give Bill such a shock
That he just grabbed the doctor's hand and he says now look out doc.

Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
You can cure my aches and ills
With your powders and your pills
But, Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me.

One night as Bill was passin' a graveyard on the hill
Something dressed in white jumped out and made a grab at Bill
Bill says you may catch me, but I'll make you do your best
Before we start to travel, I'll make one last request.

Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me
You may run me out of breath
You may scare me half to death
But, Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Of Me.

Ah, but, two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means, king of the road.

I'm a man of means by no means, king of the road.
I know every engineer on every train
All of their children, and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked, when no one's around.

Carson Robison - Life Gits Tee-Jus Don't It? - 1948
The sun comes up and the sun goes down

The hands on the clock keep goin' 'roun'
I just git up and it's time to lay down
Life gits tee-jus, don't it?
My shoe's untied, but I don't care
I ain't fig'rin' on goin' nowhere
I'd have to wash and comb my hair

And that's just wasted effort

Water in the well gettin' lower and lower
Can't take a bath for six months more
But I've heard it said and it's true, I'm sure
That too much bathin' will weaken yuh
I open the door and the flies swarm in

I shut the door and I'm sweatin' again
I move too fast and crack my shin
Just one durn thing after another

Old -brown mule, he must be sick
I jabbed him in the rump with a pin on a stick
He humped his back but he wouldn't kick

There's somethin' cock-eyed somewhere
A mouse a-chawin' on the pantry door
He's been at it fer a month er more
When he gets thru, he'll sure be sore
There ain't a durn thing in there

Hound dog howlin' so forlorn

Laziest dog that ever was born
He's howlin' cause he's settin' on a thorn
And jist too tired to move over
The tin roof leaks and the chimney leans
There's a hole in the seat of my ol' blue jeans
And I've et the last of the pork and beans

Jist can't depend on nothin'

Cow's gone dry and hens won't lay
Fish quit bitin' last Saturday
Troubles pile up day by day
And now I'm gittin' dandruff
Grief and misery, pains and woes

Debts and taxes and so it goes
And I think I'm gittin' a cold in the nose
Life gits tasteless, don't it?

The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed is Mane Laveau, down in Louisiana There's a lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie, She's supposed to have a lot of magic potions, spells and curses ...

Down in Louisiana. where the black trees grow
Lives a voodoo lady named Mane Laveau
Got a black cat's tooth and a Mojo bone
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone

She'd go another man done gone
She lives in a swamp in a hollow log
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog
She's got a bent, bony body and stringy hair

If she ever seen why'all messing round there
She'd go another man done gone
And then one night when the moon was black
Into the swamp come handsome Jack

A no good man like you all know
He was looking around for Marie Laveau
He said Marie Laveau, you handsome witch
Give me a little a little charm that'll make me rich

Give me a million dollars and I tell you what I'll do
This very night, I'm gonna marry you
Then It'll be another man done gone
So Marie done some magic, and she shook a little sand

Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand
Then she giggled and she wiggled. and she said Hey. Hey
I'm getting ready for my wedding day
But old handsome Jack he said goodbye Marie

You're too damned ugly for a rich man like me
Then Mane started mumbling her fangs started gnashing
Her body started trembling and her eyes started flashing
And she went another man done gone

So if you ever get down where the black trees grow
And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
If she ever asks you to make her your wife
Man, you better stay with her for the rest of your life

Or it'll be another man done gone

Little Jimmy Dickens - May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose - # ONE - 1978
One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket
In his tin cup I did drop it
I heard him say as I made my retreat
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
The laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred-dollar bill among my clothes
When he called me I came a-runnin'
Gave him back his dime for phonin'
I heard him sayin' as I turned to go
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
I was way behind one day to catch the train
Taxi driver said We'll make it just the same
The speed cop made it with us
And as he wrote out the ticket
I stood by politely a-waitin' for my change
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose

Jim Reeves - Mexican Joe - # ONE - 1953
South of the border, hey I know a lad
He's got more fun than anybody's had
Don't got no worry, don't got no dough
Everybody's wondering about Mexican Joe
In old Mexico they call him the Rhumba King
Leads all the women around on a string
When they go out they get a million thrills
But the lovely senoritas wind up with the bills
Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe
He makes the night spots all along the bay
People want to see him when he comes their way
He spreads so much joy everywhere
He goes everyone shouts Viva la Mexican Joe
He likes to gamble at poker, he's an ace
He's always lucky with the cards at ever face
At winnin' the money, he is sure a whiz
But when they win they don't collect
'Cause they don't know where he is
Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe
He don't got no income tax 'cause he don't got no dough
Still he gets along just fine how we'll never know
He's got everything he wants, a girl, a song
If we use his formula we surely can't go wrong
His favorite playground is anywhere there's girls
He's got that something that sets their hearts a whirl
It couldn't be his money 'cause he ain't got a peso
But when he wants a kiss all he's got to do is say so
Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe

Mississippi Delta Land
You robbed me of my youth
And all you gave back was a one-room shack
And a mind that learned the truth

There ain't no future for a man
That works but never owns the land
But now these old hard-working hands
Is leaving for Chicago in the morning

Mississippi Delta Land Your riches ain't for me
These kids of mine and me's gonna a find
A better place to be Lord, I hate to leave that old mule behind
Me and him is two of a kind But he's Mr. Johnson's, not mine
And I'm leaving for Chicago in the morning

Mississippi Delta Land My daddy and his daddy, too
Plowed your soil, and for all their toil
They never owned an inch of you
These kids of mine are goin' to school
I may be dumb, but I've learned one rule
The rich is smart and the poor is a fool
And I'm leaving for Chicago in the morning.

lulu Belle & Scotty - Mountain Dew - # ONE - ZZZ
There's a big hollow tree
Down the road here from me
'Where you lay down a dollar or two
Then you go around the bend
When you come back again
There's a jugful of mountain dew

Oh, they call it that good old mountain dew
And them that refuse it are few
Oh, I'll shut up my mug If you'll fill up my jug
With that good old mountain dew

Well, there's my old Aunt June
Bought some brand new perfume
It had such a sweet smellin' phew
But to her surprise, when she had it analyzed
It was nothing but good old mountain dew

And there's Uncle Mort
He's sawed off and short
He's just five feet and one inch or two
But he thinks he's a giant
When he gets him a pint
Of that good old mountain dew

Now, there's Uncle Bill
Got a still on the hill
Where he runs off a gallon or two
And the buzzards in the sky
Get so dizzy they can't fly
Just from smelling that mountain dew.

I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you
In worn out shoes
Silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants
The old soft shoe

He jumped so high
He jumped so high
Then he'd lightly touched down

Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles
Dance

I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was
Down and out
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
As he spoke right out

He talked of life
He talked of life
He lightly slapped his leg instead

He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick
Across the cell
He grabbed his pants for a better stance
He jumped so high
He clicked his heels

He let go a laugh
He let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around

Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles
Mr Bojangles
Dance

We danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
Throughout the south
We spoke in tears of fifteen years
How his dog and him
They travelled about

His dog up and died
He up and died
After twenty years he still grieves

They said I dance now at every chance and honky tonks
For drinks and tips
But most the time I spend behind these county bars
Cause I drinks a bit

He shook his head and as he shook his head
I heard someone ask please

Billy Edd Wheeler - Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Back - 1965
They passed an ordinance in the town
They said we'd have to tear it down
That little old shack out back, so dear to me
Though the health department said its day was over and dead
It will stand forever in my memory

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town

It was not so long ago
That I went tripping through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound dog
Where I'd sit me down to rest
Like a snowbird on his nest
And read the Sears and Roebuck catalog

I would hum a happy tune
A-peepin' through the quarter moon
As my daddy's kin had done before
It was in that quiet spot
Daily cares would be forgot
It gave the same relief to rich and poor

It was not a castle fair
But I could dream my future there
And build my castles to the yellow jacket's drone
I could orbit 'round the sun
Fight with Gen'ral Washington
Or be a king upon a golden throne

It wasn't fancy built at all
We had newspapers on the wall
It was air-conditioned in the winter time
It was just a humble hut
But its door was never shut
And a man could get inside without a dime.

Well, Interstate 80
We was cuttin' the fog
Just me and Old Sloan
(Old Sloan's my dog)
We had a eighteen wheeler
With ten on the floor and a stereo
Layin' a strip

Then we spied a sign
Says Eat and Gas Now
We decided to whip in and pick up some chow
At the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin'
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up (a-lookin' for Mavis)
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Now I've been every place 'tween here and South Sioux
And we've seen us a truck stop waitress or two
But this gal's built like a burlap bag full of bobcats
She's got it to-gether
Well, she filled my tank
I said, Thank you, honey
Name was Mavis
I gave her the money
Old Sloan just sat there
Watchin', waggin', and wishin'
I says, You wait in the truck, boy

Then I went inside
She says, What'll it be?
I says, A cup of your best and a number 3
She come back with an order to go and a quart of hot C
And a bone for Sloan

I said, Much obliged
Old Sloan gave a bark
I left her a buck and he left his heart
At the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin'
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin'
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Well, Saturday night and we was truckin' along
Yeah, me and Old Sloan was a-gettin' it on
I said, Sloan, I been thinkin' on a-gettin' up my courage
And tonight's the night
Well, I popped the clutch
Gave the tranny a spin
Took the Beebeetown ramp and slid on in
To the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin'
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up (it never closes)
Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Well, I got me a stool
Took a load off my shoes
Made Mavis an offer that she couldn't refuse
I says, How'd you like to go for a ride with me and Old Sloan?
I just had my truck washed
She allowed as how that sounded like a whole lotta fun
But we was gonna have to wait until the dishes was done
And was it alright with me if she brought along her mother as a chaperone?
I said, Why not?

Well, we geared that tranny into super low
And the four of us went to see a picture show
Yeah, took 'em to the drive-in theater over by Pisgah to see True Grit
Saw the late late show
Old Sloan hit the sack
And then along about two o'clock I hauled 'em on back
To the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin' Cafe

Oh, the Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On A-Truckin'

George Jones - The One I Loved Back Then - 1986
Johnny Cash - One Piece at a Time - # ONE - 1976
Well, I left Kentucky back in forty nine
An' went to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line
The first year they had me puttin' wheels on Cadillacs
Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry
'Cause I always wanted me one that was long and black.
One day I devised myself a plan
That should be the envy of most any man
I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand
Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired
But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired
I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand.
I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.
So the very next day when I punched in
With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends
I left that day with a lunch box full of gears
I've never considered myself a thief
But GM wouldn't miss just one little piece
Especially if I strung it out over several years.
The first day I got me a fuel pump
And the next day I got me an engine and a trunk
Then I got me a transmission and all the chrome
The little things I could get in my big lunchbox
Like nuts, an' bolts, and all four shocks
But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home.
Now, up to now my plan went all right
'Til we tried to put it all together one night
And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong.
The transmission was a fifty three
And the motor turned out to be a seventy three
And when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone.
So we drilled it out so that it would fit
And with a little bit of help with an adapter kit
We had that engine runnin' just like a song
Now the headlight' was another sight
We had two on the left and one on the right
But when we pulled out the switch all three of 'em come on.
The back end looked kinda funny too
But we put it together and when we got through
Well, that's when we noticed that we only had one tail-fin
About that time my wife walked out
And I could see in her eyes that she had her doubts
But she opened the door and said 'Honey, take me for a spin.'
So we drove up town just to get the tags
And I headed her right on down main drag
I could hear everybody laughin' for blocks around
But up there at the court house they didn't laugh
'Cause to type it up it took the whole staff
And when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds.
I got it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.
Ugh! Yeah, RED RYDER
This is the COTTON MOUTH
In the PSYCHO-BILLY CADILLAC Come on
Huh, This is the COTTON MOUTH
And negatory on the cost of this mow-chine there RED RYDER
You might say I went right up to the factory
And picked it up, it's cheaper that way
Ugh!, what model is it?
Well, It's a '49, '50, '51, '52, '53, '54, '55, '56
'57, '58' 59' automobile
It's a '60, '61, '62, '63, '64, '65, '66, '67
'68, '69, '70 automobile.

Prairie Ramblers - Open Up the Door Hiram - ZZZ
Robert Lunn - Original Talking Blues - ZZZ
Now, if you want to get to heaven, let me tell you how to do it
Grease your feet with a little old mutton suet
Every night over in the promised land
Skip right over in the devil's hand
Go easy ... make it easy . . . go greasy

I was standing in the corner by the mantelpiece
I looked over my head and a bucket of grease
Greased my feet with a little axle grease
Slippin' up and down that mantelpiece
Hunting matches ... cigarette butts ... chewing tobacco

Now, out in the wildwood, sittin' on a tree
I sat down on a bumblebee
Thought it was a snake or a bug, you see
On second thought, I knew it was a bee
'Cause it kept stinging ... achin', too ... no relief

Now, it ain't no use of me workin' so hard
I gotta woman in the rich folks' yard
When you kill a chicken, gotta save the bead
Think I'm workin', but I'm layin' in bed
Sleepin' . . . havin' a good time ... dreaming about her

Now, behind the hen house on my knees
Thought I heard that chicken sneeze
'Twas only a rooster sayin' his prayers
Givin' out the hymns for the hens upstairs
Just preachin' . . . hens a-singin' . . . roosters prayin'
Takin' up collections ... payin' off in eggs ... stuff like that.

Little Jimmy Dickens - Out Behind The Barn - 1954
My pappy used to tan my hide out behind the barn
He taught me to be dignified out behind the barn
When he took his strap to me and turned me down across his knee
He sure did hurt my dignity out behind the barn

I got my education out behind the barn
I ain't foolin', no siree
Passed each examination out behind the barn
And it almost made a wreck out of me

I smoked my first cigarette out behind the barn
Now that's the day I won't forget out behind the barn
I got sick, you shoulda seen how that tobacco turned me green
I almost died from nicotine out behind the barn

I met a pretty girl one day out behind the barn
She wanted me to stay and play out behind the barn
She taught me to kiss and pet, that's the game I won't forget
We still play the same game yet out behind the barn

I sure would like to go again out behind the barn
And do some things that I did then out behind the barn
You might think it ain't no fun to be a poor old farmer's son
You just don't know what all I've done out behind the barn.

Al Dexter - Pistol Packin' Mama - # ONE - 1944
Drinking beer in a cabaret
And was I having fun
Until one night she caught me right
And now I'm on the run

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Well, she kicked out my windshield
She hit me o'er the head
She cursed and cried and said I'd lied
And wished that I was dead

Drinking beer in a cabaret
And dancing with a blonde
Until one night, she shot out the lights
Bang! that blonde was gone

I'll see you every night, babe
I'll woo you every day
I'll be your regular daddy
If you'll put that gun away

Now there was old Al Dexter
He always had his fun
But with some lead, she shot him dead
His honkin' days are done.

George Jones - The Race Is On - 1964
I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake
Now, you might say that I was taking it hard
Since you wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide my sorrow
When I may break right down and bawl?

Now the race is on and here comes
Pride up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My Tears are holding back
They're trying not to fall
My Heart's out of the running
True Love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like Heartaches
And the winner loses all

One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin'
What the final result would be
How I lived in fear of waking up each morning
And finding that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart
For today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
And I came out in second place.

Bryan Bowers - The Scotsman - ZZZ
Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar one evening fair
One could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share

He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass asleep beside the street
Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
He stumbled off into the grass asleep beside the street
About that time two young n' lovely girls just happened by
One says to the other with a twinkle in her eye

See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built,
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt.
Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see

And there behold for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
They marveled for a moment then one said, We must be gone.
Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along.
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow
Around the bonnie star the Scot's kilt did lift and show.
Around the bonnie star the Scot's kilt did lift and show.
Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards the trees
Behind a bush he lift his kilt and gawks at what he sees
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes

Ah, lad I don't know you've been but I see you won first prize.
Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
Ah, lad I don't know you've been but I see you won first prize.

Johnny Cash - Seasons of My Heart - 1960
The seasons come the seasons go we get a little sunshine rain and snow
Just the way that it was planned to be
But there's no seasons in my heart while you play the leading part
Cause the flowers will bloom eternally
Your leaving will bring autumn sorrow and my tears like withered leaves will fall
But spring could bring some glad tomorrow and darling we could be happy after all
As it is in nature's plan no season get the upper hand
How I try to keep this fact in mind
The trees are bare the cold wind blows and by experience we should know
Winter comes but the spring is close behind
Your leaving will bring

Jerry Reed - She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft) - # ONE
- 1982
Well, I guess it was back in sixty-three
When eatin' my cookin' got the better of me
So I asked this little girl I was goin' with
To be my wife
Well, she said she would
So I said, I do
But I'd-a said I wouldn't if I'd-a just knew
How sayin' I do was gonna screw up all my o' my life
Well, the first few years weren't all that bad
I'll never forget the good times we had
'Cause I'm reminded every month
When I send her the child support
Well, it wasn't too long till the lust was gone
And I'll admit I wasn't too surprised
The day I come home and found my suitcase
Sittin' out on the porch
Well, I tried to get in, she'd changed the lock
Then I found this note stuck on the mailbox
It said, Goodbye, turkey
My Attorney will be in touch
So I decided right then and there
I was gonna do what's right,
Give her her fair share, but, brother,
I didn't assay it was gonna be that much
She got the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
They split it right down the middle
And then they gave her the better half
Well it all sounds sort o' funny
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine
And I got the shaft
Now listen, you ain't heard nothin' yet
Why, they gave her the colour television set
Then they gave her the house
The kids and both o' the cars
See, well then they start talkin' 'bout child support
Alimony and the cost o' the Court
It didn't take me long to figure out
How fond of attorneys I was
I'm tellin' ya they have made a mistake
'Cause it adds up to more than this cowboy makes
Besides, everything I ever had worth takin'
They've already took!
While she's livin' like a queen on alimony
I'm workin' two shifts,
Eatin' baloney, askin' myself
Why didn't you just learn to cook?
They give her the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
They give me the shaft (I got the shaft)
They said they're splittin it all down the middle,
But she got the better half
But it all sounds mighty funny
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine
I got the shaft
Well, she got the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
They split it all down the middle
And then they give her the better half
Well I guess it all sounds funny (Ha-ha-ha-ha)
Just hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine
I got the shaft
Huh-hah, they ain't kiddin'
I got the shaft
But I don't have to worry
About totin' a billfold no more
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha,
I let my wife tote it
I'm gonna be carryin' food stamps
You get it, Judge?
Ha-ha, that's not funny, huh?
Contempt of Court?
What d'ya mean?
Listen, Judge
I was just kiddin'
I mean

Tennessee Ernie Ford - Shotgun Boogie - # ONE - ZZZ
There it stands in the corner with the barrel so straight
I looked out the winder and over the gate
The big fat rabbits are jumpin' in the grass
Wait 'til they hear my old shotgun blast
Shotgun boogie, I done saw your track
Look out Mr.Rabbit when I cock my hammer back
Well, over on the ridge is a scaly bark
Hickory nuts so big you can see 'em in the dark
The big fat squirrels, they scratch and they fight
I'll be on that ridge before daylight
With a shotgun boogie, all I need is one shot
Look out bushy tails, tonight you'll be in the pot
Well, I met a pretty gal, she was tall and thin
I asked her what she had, she said, A fox four ten
I looked her up and down, said, Boy, this is love
So we headed for the brush to shoot a big fat dove
Shotgun boogie, boy, the feathers flew
Look out Mr.Dove when she draws a bead on you
I sat down on a log, took her on my lap
She said wait a minute bud, you got to see my pap
He's gotta sixteen gauge choked down like a rifle
He don't like a man that's gonna trifle
Shotgun boogie, draws a bead so fine
Look out big boy, he's loaded all the time
Well, I called on her pap like a gentleman oughter
He said, No brush hunter's gonna get my daughter
He cocked back the hammer right on the spot
When the gun went off I outrun the shot
Shotgun boogie, I wanted weddin' bells
I'll be back little gal, when your pappy runs out of shells

Patsy Montana - Sixteen Pounds - ZZZ
Some men say a woman is made from a rib
With a heart that is black, a tongue that is glib
You work and you sweat down to your bones
They say a woman's place is the home.

You wash sixteen pounds of dirty old clothes
You work and you sweat down to your toes
Your husband comes home and whadda ya get
How come my dinner aint ready yet?

It's up in the mornin' at a quarter-to-six
It's five or six breakfasts that you gotta fix
You gotta do the ironin' and mop up the floor
You never get thru till a quarter-to-four.

You get sixteen bucks for to run the house
From your ever so sweet and lovin' spouse
St. Peter dont call me, you're outta luck
I owe my soul to Sears & Roebucks.

I was married one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
I gave him my love and he gave me his name
That's all he ever give me, 'cept a couple of things
A whole bunch of kids and a two-dollar ring.

You buy sixteen pounds of black eyed peas
A dollar's worth of (Gold*), a dollar's worth of beans
You got no money to pay your bills
If the landlord don't get you, then the taxes will.

A woman's lot is a sorry one
You gotta count calories and that ain't fun
You gotta wear a girdle, just to please him
You gotta stay neat and you gotta stay trim.

You gain sixteen pounds and whadda ya get
Another dirty look from your old man, yet
St. Peter don't call me, 'cause I can't go
I'm gettin' too heavy to pass thru the door.

Blake Shelton - Some Beach - # ONE - 2004
Driving down the interstate
Running thirty minutes late
Singing Margaritaville and minding my own
Some foreign car drivin' dude with a road rage attitude
Pulled up beside me talking on his cell phone
He started yelling at me like I did something wrong
He flipped me the bird an' then he was gone
Some beach
Somewhere
There's a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair
Palm trees are growing and warm breezes blowing
I picture myself right there
On some beach, somewhere
I circled the parking lot trying to find a spot
Just big enough I could park my old truck
A man with a big cigar was getting into his car
I stopped and I waited for him to back up
But from out of no where a Mercedes Benz
Came cruisin' up and whipped right in
Some beach
Somewhere
There's no where to go when you got all day to get there
There's cold margaritas and hot Senoritas smiling with long dark hair
On some beach
Somewhere
I sat in that waiting room
It seemed like all afternoon
The nurse finally said doc's ready for you
You're not gonna feel a thing we'll give you some Novocaine
That tooth will be fine in a minute or two
Then he stuck that needle down deep in my gum
And he started drilling before I was numb
Some beach
Somewhere
There's a beautiful sunset burning up the atmosphere
There's music and dancing and lovers romancing
In the salty evenin' air
On some beach
Somewhere
On some beach, somewhere

Throwin' them spitballs, hit me in the eye
Woo, good golly gooseberry pie
Stand up, sit down, shut your mouth
Well, old school teacher's got it in for me
Makin' my school days misery
Just when I think it's time for the school to let out
Teacher stands up and begins to shout
Stand up, sit down, shut your mouth
Stand up, sit down, shut your mouth
Well, Little Willy does it but I catch the flame
Guess the teacher's got it in for my name
I march to the desk and I try to explain
But all the teacher says is you out to be ashamed
Stand up, sit down, shut your mouth
Well some of these days I'm gonna graduate
Anytime soon won't be too late
Then I can go to college and here's what I'll do
Study real hard and be a schoolteacher too
Stand up, sit down, shut your mouth
Well, old school teacher's got it in for me

If you go down to the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.
For ev'ry bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
Ev'ry teddy bear who's been good
Is sure of a treat today.
There's lots of marvelous things to eat
And wonderful games to play.
Beneath the trees where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic.
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home.
For ev'ry bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
Picnic time for teddy bears
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today
Watch them, catch them unawares
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily gad about
They love to play and shout;
They never have any care;
At six o'clock their mummies and daddies,
Will take them home to bed,
Because they're tired little teddy bears.

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan - Tennessee Bird Walk - # ONE - 1970
Take away the trees and the birds
All have to sit upon the ground, uum
Take away their wings and
The birds will have to walk to get around
And take away the bird baths
And dirty birds will soon be ev'rywhere
Take away their feathers and
The birds will walk around in underwear
Take away their chirp and the
Birds will have to whisper when they sing
And take away their common sense and
They'll be headed southward in the spring

Oh remember my darling
When spring is in the air
And the bald headed birds
Are whisp'ring ev'rywhere
You can see them walking
Southward in their dirty underwear
That's Tennessee Bird walk

How about some trees so the birds
Won't have to sit upon the ground, uum
How about some wings so the
Birds won't have to walk to get around
And how about a bird bath or two
So the birds will all be clean
How about some feathers so their
Underwear no longer can be seen
How about a chirp so the birds
Won't have to whisper when they sing
And how about some common sense so they
Won't be blocking traffic in the spring

Oh remember my darling
When spring is in the air
And the bald headed birds
Are whisp'ring ev'rywhere
You can see them walking
Southward in their dirty underwear
That's Tennessee Bird walk

Sometimes she runs, sometimes she don't
More than once she's left me on the side of the road
The older she gets, the slower we go
But there ain't nothin' wrong with the radio

She needs a carburetor, a set of plug wires
She's riding me around on four bald tires
The wipers don't work and the horn don't blow
But there ain't nothin' wrong with the radio

I've got sixteen speakers crossin' my back dash
A little bobbin' dog watchin' everybody pass
Dual attennas whippin' in the wind
Lord, there ain't a country station that I can't tune in
She ain't a Cadillac and she ain't a Rolls
But there ain't nothin' wrong with the radio

I got stopped by a cop late last night
Out-of-date tags and no tail lights
He said, I oughta run you in, but I'm lettin' you go
Because there ain't nothin' wrong with your radio

Got the best lookin' gal in my hometown
I asked her last time that I took her out
Honey, tell me what it is that makes you love me so
She said, there ain't nothin' wrong with your radio

I've got sixteen speakers crossin' my back dash
A little bobbin' dog watchin' everybody pass
Dual attennas a-whippin' in the wind
Lord, there ain't a country station that I can't tune in
She ain't a Cadillac and she ain't a Rolls
But there ain't nothin' wrong with the radio

No, she ain't a Cadillac and she ain't a Rolls

There'll never be no fear of them wolves hangin' 'round
Ugly and slouchy, that's the way I like 'em
There'll never be no fear of her lovin' someone else
I've been all around this wide world, nothin' I ain't seen
Well, I got a little gal, she's far from bein' queen
Ugly and slouchy, that's the way I like 'em
There'll never be no fear of her lovin' someone else

It's just a modern world we live in, but why do they pick on me
Why just the other week my missus had the cheek to talk me into a va-sec-tom-y
At first it never clicked that I was gettin' nicked, I thought it was to test virility
Than after I went through it, ten days we couldn't do it and then the doctor said to me
I couldn't believe it folks - He said please blow into this bag, please sir
What? - to test your capability
I beg your pardon? - we're cutting down on accidents
I said are you fair dinkum - He said please blow into this bag and we'll see
Well - I couldn't believe it at first but you know what they say about doctors orders
So he gave me the little bag and ushered me into the little room with all the pin-ups
Grubby little room it was, too, and I came back with my little bag
And the doctor was quite satisfied, and so was I
It's just a modern world we live in, there's knew fangled things every day
The cop said I was speedin', accordin' to his readin'
But I was three kilometers away
I was feelin' pretty mad when he took out his pad, I tried to stay as calm as I could be
He found a bawldy tread, he saw my eyes were red
And then he said this strange thing to me - I said what again?
He said please blow into this bag, please sir
I said hang on - to test your capability
What? - we're cutting down on accidents
I said are you fair dinkum - He said please blow into this bag and we'll see
Well this time I really was shaken up, the cop could see I was a bit excited
He said well you better take a good grip on yourself son
So I went around behind a big gum tree and came back with my little bag
Well you can imagine what happened
It's just a modern world we live in, I'm feelin' very sad and pale
The judge said I was sick and threw me in the nick
And missus said she wouldn't pay the bail
So take it from a fool like me, beware of quacks and boys in blue
I'm feelin' pretty bruised so don't you get confused
I'd catch a train if I was you-ou
All together now - please blow into this bag, please sir
Ahh, It sends a shiver down my spine
Please blow into this bag, please sir
If the women don't get you, it's the wine

Hank Thompson - Wake Up Irene - # ONE - 1954
For months and months and months around the country
Everybody sang Irene goodnight
But she wouldn't go to bed no matter what they said
Though everybody tried with all their might.
She stayed awake while steel guitars were a going
In every honky-tonk she could be seen
But she finally went to bed and covered up her head
And now there's not a thing can wake Irene
Wake up Irene you've slept too long
Wake up Irene it's time to move along
Wake up Irene and pay for your bed
Wake up Irene or folks will think your dead
Lot's of guitar pickers by the dozen
Sang goodnight Irene all night and day
And even Crosby too with his bobobabobedo
Tried to get Irene to hit the hay
Well I guess they finally sang her off to slumber
They must have tried a million times or more
But oh my aching back when she finally hit the sack
Man you ought to hear that woman snore
Wake up Irene you've slept too long
Wake up Irene it's time to move along
Wake up Irene and pay for your bed
Wake up Irene or folks will think your dead

Well me and Homer Jones and Big John Talley
Had a big crap game goin' back in the alley
And I kept rollin' them sevens , winnin' all them pots
My luck was so good I could do no wrong
I jest kept on rollin' and controllin' them bones
And finally they jest threw up their hands and said
When you hot, you hot
I said Yeah?
When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
Put all the money in and let's roll 'em again
When you're hot, you're hot
(La la la la la la la) (La la la la la)
(La la la la la la la, when you're hot, you're hot)
Well, now every time I rolled them dice I'd win
And I was just gettin' ready to roll 'em again
When I heard somethin' behind me
I turned around and there was a big old cop
He said Hello, boys and then he gave us a grin 'n' said
Look like I'm gonna hafta haul you all in
And keep all that money for evidence
I said, Well, son when you hot, you hot
He said Yeah
When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
You can 'splain it all down at City Hall
I say, yeah, when you're hot, you're hot
You're hot
(La la la la la la la) (La la la la la)
(La la la la la la la, when you're hot, you're hot)
Well, when he took us inta court I couldn't believe my eyes
The judge was a fishin' buddy that I recognized
I said Hey, judge, old buddy, old pal
I'll pay ya that hundred I owe ya if you'll get me outta this spot
So he gave my friends a little fine to pay
He turned around and grinned at me and said
Ninety days, Jerry, when you hot, you hot
'n' I said Thanks a lot
When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
He let my friends go free and throwed the book at me
He said Well, when you're hot, you're hot
I said well I'll tell ya one thing judge, old buddy, old pal
If you wasn't wearin' that black robe I'd take out in back of this courthouse
And I'd try a little bit of your honor on
You understand that, you hillbilly?
Who gonna collect my welfare?
(When you're hot, you're hot)
Pay for my Cadillac?
Whadda you mean 'contempt of court'?
(When you're hot, you're hot)

Me and Lim Brick and Old Bill Brown
Takin’ a load of corn to town
My Old Jim Dog, the darned old cuss
He just naturally followed us

As we drove by Sam Johnson’s door
Passed and cursed him out the door
Jim, he’s good behind the box
And all them fellers are throwin’ rocks

Refrain:
Every time I go to town
The boys keep a-kickin’ my dog around
Makes no difference if he is a hound
You got to quit kicking my dog around

-Solo-

They tied a can to Old Jim’s tail
Running him around the count jail
That made us a-dead burned sore
Lim, he cussed and Bill, he swore

Me and Lim Brick and Old Bill Brown
Lost no time a-get them down
We lost them fellers on the ground
For kicking my Old Jim Dog around

Refrain: -Solo-

Jim saw his duty there and then
He tore ‘em to them gentlemen
He sure messed up the courthouse square
With the rags and meat and the hide and hair

The Sheriff came and stopped the fuss
And all them boys shook hands with us
We gathered ‘round that load of corn
And every man had a healthy horn

Refrain: -Solo-

Old Jim Dog is worth much cash
But I can tell you, he ain’t no trash
He wakes me up before the break of day
And he keeps them revenue-boys away

He’s the best old dog, you ever did see
Wherever I go, he follows me
His voice is sweet, his name is Jim
He’d fight for me and I’d for him

Refrain: -Solo-

George Strait - You Had Me From Hello - ZZZ
One word…that's all you said
Something in your voice caused me…to turn my head
Your smile…just captured me
You are in my future…far as I can see
And I don't know how it happen…but it happen still
You asked me if I love you…if I always will

Chorus:
Well, you had me from hello
And I felt love start to grow
The moment that I look into your eyes…you want me
It was over from the start
You completely stole my heart
And now you won't let go
I never even had a chance to know
You had me from hello

Inside…I built a wall
So high around my heart I thought I'd never fall
One touch…you brought it down
Bricks of my defenses scattered on the ground
And I swore to me I wasn't gonna love again
The last time was the last time…I let someone in

Chorus:
But you had me from hello
And I felt love start to grow
The moment that I look into your eyes…you want me
It was over from the start
You completely stole my heart
And now you won't let go
I never even had a chance to know
You had me from hello

That's all you said
Something in your voice caused me to turn my head
You had me from hello-o
You had me from hello-o
Girl, I loved you from hello

When I was broke and blue I gave advice to you
Ah you're a true blue friend you helped me pay my rent
I charged you ten percent ah that's what I call a real good friend

When I was sick ol' scout you took my girl friend out
On me you can depend oh what a pal you were
I even married her you're a real good friend

Here's a cigar or two that's mighty nice of you
You're a real good friend but don't stand too close to me
It might go off you see you're a real good friend

I borrowed your car last night you brought it back alright
Smashed from end to end I may have had a crash
But I filled it up with gas you're a real good friend

I told some folks the facts about your income tax
Now you're a real good friend but who did you tell it to
Internal revenue now you're a real good friend

If I should ever be governor of Tennessee
I'll prove my friendship then oh what will you do for me
Dog catcher you will be you're a real good friend

I recorded a song you wrote I sang it note for note
Well thanks my real good friend I think it will be a hit
So I put my name on it now you're a real good friend

Let's sing a sweet duet we'll make a team I'll bet
Let our voices blend I'll sing the melody
I'll sing the harmony cause we're both real good friends

Hank Williams Jr. - Ain't Misbehavin' - # ONE - ZZZ

No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with, but I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you
Now I know for certain, you're the one I love
I'm through with flirtin', just you I'm dreamin' of
Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you
Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go no where, why do I care
Your kisses are worth waiting for
Believe me
I don't stay out late, I don't care to go
I'm home about eight, just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you
Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go no where, why do I care
Your kisses are worth waiting for
Believe me
I don't stay out late, I don't care to go
I'm home about eight, just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you

Brooks & Dunn - Ain't Nothing 'Bout You - # ONE - ZZZ

Once I thought that love was something I could never do
Never knew that I could feel this much
But this yearning in the deep part of my heart for you
Is more than a reaction to your touch
It's a perfect passion and I can't get enough
The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing 'bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, the way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There ain't nothing 'bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me
In my life I've been hammered by some heavy blows
That never knocked me off my feet
All you gotta do is smile at me and down I go
And baby it's no mystery why I surrender
Girl you got everything
The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing 'bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, the way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There ain't nothing 'bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me
I love your attitude, your rose tattoo, your every thought
Your smile, your lips and girl the list goes on and on and on
The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing 'bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, the way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There ain't nothing 'bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me
The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
Your dance, your drive, you make me feel alive
The way you talk, the way you tease
By now I think you see
There ain't nothing 'bout you that don't do something for me

Conway Twitty - Ain't She Somethin' Else - # ONE - ZZZ

Don't you like the way she talks to you
When she's feeling woman warm
And don't it make you feel so good
Just to know she's yours all by yourself
Don't you like to see the sun go down
When she's lying close to you
And can't you feel her all around
And when she loves you ain't she something else
Ain't she just some kind of lover in the morning
Can't your arms feel the warmness where she slept
Ain't she just all that you have ever wanted
And when she loves you ain't she something else
Don't you like the way she clings to you
And loves you 'til there's nothing left
Now tell me don't her lips taste good
And when she loves you ain't she somthing else
Lord, When she loves me she's sure something else

Rhonda Vincent - Ain't That Love - ZZZ

I will always remember
The first time that we met
And the first time that I kissed your lips
Is a thing I won't forget
The special way you held me
Is the way you hold me still
And I knew right then that you love me
And I know you always will
Ain't that love
Ain't that how it's suppose to be
When two hearts come together as one
Just like you and me
Ain't that love
Shining in your eyes
Heaven sent from up above
Ain't that love
My grandpa and my grandma
My momma and my dad
Didn't have a lot of things
But love is what they had
Their love kept them together
Through the many years
Though life was hard
They shared it all through the laughter and the tears
Ain't that love
Ain't that how it's suppose to be
When two hearts come together as one
Just like you and me
Ain't that love
Shining in your eyes
Heaven sent from up above
Ain't that love
Baby, you're the sunshine
That brightens up my day
And I will always stand by you
Darling come what may
And I will always love you
To have and to hold
And I'll keep my every promise to you
With this band of gold
Ain't that love
Ain't that how it's suppose to be
When two hearts come together as one
Just like you and me
Ain't that love
Shining in your eye's
Heaven sent from up above
Ain't that love
Heaven sent from up above
Ain't that love

Hank Williams Jr & Mike Curb Congregation - All For The Love Of Sunshine - # ONE - ZZZ

The darkness of my world was all cleared away
The flowers are blooming it's a beautiful day
There's a girl with a heart as big as the sky she's sunshine and I know why
All for the love of sunshine all for the love of sunshine
The Lord smiled down on this life of mine and sent me the love of sunshine
Though sunshine can always make my days seem bright
Sunshine can warm up a cold cold night
I know my sunshine was sent from above an angel that's filled with love
All for the love of sunshine
Through winter the springtime the summer and fall
The moonlight the starlight she outshines them all
In a world filled with fear with pain and such harm my sunshine can be so warm
All for the love of sunshine
All for the love of sunshine
All for the love of sunshine

All I Ever Need Is You
Kenny Rogers & Dottie West
Sometimes when I'm down and all alone
Just like a child without a home
The love you give me keeps me hangin' on
Oh honey, all I ever need is you
You're my first love, you're my last
You're my future, you're my past
And loving you is all I ask, honey
All I ever need is you
Winters come and they go, and we watch the melting snow
Sure as summer follows spring, all the things you do
Give me a reason to build my world around you
Some men follow rainbows, I am told
Some men search for silver some for gold
I have found my treasure in your soul, honey
All I ever need is you
Without love I'd never find the way
Through ups and downs of every single day
I won't sleep at night until you say, my honey
All I ever need is you

Before you take another step
There's something you should know
About the years ahead and how they'll be
You'll be living in a world
Where roses hardly ever grow
'Cause all I have to offer you is me
There'll be no mansion waiting on the hill with crystal chandeliers
And there'll be no fancy clothes for you to wear
Everything I have is standing here in front of you to see
All I have to offer you is me
Sweetheart I give you all my love in every way I can
But make sure that's what you want while you're still free
The only goal I have for you is in this wedding band
'Cause all I have to offer you is me

I don't want to get up baby
Let's turn off the phone
I don't want to go to work today
Or even put my makeup on
I've got better things to do
Than my to do list anyway
Hide under the covers
And waste away the day
Let's just lay here and be lazy
Baby drive me crazy
All I want to do
All I want to do
Is love you
I got my whole life to change the world
And climb the ladders
Looking at you looking at me
Is the only thing that matters
Come a little closer baby
We can talk without the words
Hang a sign on the door
Please do not disturb
Let's just lay here and be lazy
Baby drive me crazy
All I want to do
All I want to do
Is love you
Give me a kiss, from that Elvis lip
You don't want to miss this
All I want to do
All I want to do
Is love you
All I really want to do is
All I really want to do is
All I really want to do is love you
Love you, love you
Come a little closer baby,
We can talk without the words
Hang a sign on the door, please do not

When I wake up, when I wake up in the morning baby
All I really want to do

My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm mm mm, mm, yay, yay, yay
Well, my hands are shaky and my knees are weak

Who do you think of when you have such luck?

Well, please don't ask me what'sa on my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine
When I'm near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!
Well she touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a volcano when it's hot
I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup
I'm in love

My tongue gets tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have that girl that I love so fine!
She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a volcano that's hot

The touch of your lips, next to mine
Get me excited, makes me feel fine
I've got it bad that's alright
Long as your near me every night
Your love so worm and tender
Your thrill is so divine
If you would leave me I surely would die When you started to go I started to cry Now I've got it bad, but that's alright
As long as you're near me every night
Your love so warm and tender
Your thrill is so divine
And it's all these things that make you mine
Now I've got it bad, but that's alright
As long as you're near me every night
Your love so warm and tender
Your thrill is so divine
And it's all these things that make you mind
And it's all these things that make you mine

Would you walk to the edge of the ocean?
Just to fill my jar with sand?
Just in case I get the notion,
To let it run through my hands.
Let it run through my hands.
I don't want the whole world,
The sun, the moon and all their light.
I just wanna be the only girl,
You love all your life.
You love all your life.
Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies?
Yeah, and put 'em in a lamp to light my world.
All dressed up in a tux and bowtie.
Hand Delivered to a lonely girl.
To a lonely lonely girl
I don't want the whole world,
The sun, the moon and all their light.
I just wanna be the only girl,
You love all your life.
You love all your life
Lately I've been writing desperate love songs.
I mostly sing them to the wall.
You could be the center piece of my obsession
If you would notice me,
Yeah, ooh yeah
Well I don't want the whole world, no
The sun, the moon and all their light.
I just wanna be the only girl,
You love all your life.
You love all your life
You love all your life, life, yeah.

David HoustonAlmost Persuaded - # ONE - ZZZ1967 Grammy Song Of The Year
Last night all alone in a barroom
Met a girl with a drink in her hand.
She had ruby red lips, coal black hair
And eyes that would tempt any man.
Then she came and sat down at my table,
And as she placed her soft hands in mine,
I found myself wanting to kiss her
For temptation was flowing like wine.
And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my pride.
Almost persuaded to push my conscience aside.
Then we danced and she whispered, I need you!
Take me away from here and be my man.
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it:
The reflection of my wedding band.
And I was almost persuaded to let strange lips lead me on.
Almost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home.
Last night all alone in a barroom
Met a guy with a drink in his hand.
He had bay blue eyes, coal black hair
And a smile that a girl understands.
Then he came and sat down at my table,
And as he placed his hands over mine,
I found my self wanting to kiss him
For temptation was flowing like wine.
And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my pride.
Almost persuaded to push my conscience aside.
Then we danced and he whispered, I need you!
Let me take you away and be your man.
Then I looked into his eyes and I saw it:
The reflection of my wedding band.
And I was almost persuaded to let strange lips lead me on.
Almost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home.

David Houston - Already It's Heaven - # ONE - ZZZ
Tonight I told all my friends goodbye
And I walked away so they wouldn't see me cry
And hit for swingin' doors as fast as I can
For what love had done to me shouldn't happen to a man
And now I find myself sittin' here with you
And you make me wonder why I ever felt blue
You show understandin' a few people know
And now that I found you, I'll never let you go
Already it's heaven and we've barely met
And you've not even started lovin' me yet
'Cause you've made it sweeter than it's ever been
And if you should love me what would it be then
Already it's heaven the long search is through
And it's so good to know now that heaven is you

Darius Rucker - Alright - # ONE - ZZZ

Alright, alright
Yeah it's alright, alright
Don't need no five star reservations
I've got spaghetti and a cheap bottle of wine
Don't need no concert in the city
I've got a stereo and the best of Patsy Cline
Ain't got no caviar no Dom Perignon
But as far as I can see, I've got everything I want
Cause I've got a roof over my head,
The woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me
Maybe later on we'll walk down to the river
Lay on a blanket and stare up at the moon
It may not be no French Riviera
But it's all the same to me as long as I'm with you
It may be a simple life, but that's okay
If you ask me baby, I think I've got it made
Cause I've got a roof over my head
The woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me
It's alright by me, yeah yeah
When I lay down at night I thank the Lord above
For giving me everything I ever could dream of
Cause I've got a roof over my head
The woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright, alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright, alright
And I've got all I need, yeah
I've got all I need
And it's alright by me
Oh yeah, it's alright by me

Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby, when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me
And it just blows me away
I've never been this close to anyone or anything
I can hear your thoughts, I can see your dreams
I don't know how you do what you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you
The smell of your skin
The taste of your kiss
The way you whisper in the dark
Your hair all around me
Baby, you surround me
Touch every place in my heart
And it feels like the first time every time
I want to spend the whole night in your eyes
I don't know how you do what you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you
Every little thing that you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do, oh
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you

I love my baby, she makes me oh so blue
I love my baby, she makes me oh so blue
She keeps me so worried, that I call her U 92
She's got a high potential and a low resistance point
She's got a high potential and a low resistance point
I have to be so careful, that gal might blow up the joint
Yeah, she heats my room, she lights my light
She starts my motor and it runs all night
She's my atomic baby, yeah, she's my atomic baby
She's my atomic baby and I have to handle her with care
They can build them small, they can build them large
But they can't build a motor that will stand a charge
With my atomic baby, she's my atomic baby
She's my atomic baby and I have to handle her with care
Yeah, she's a little bitty mama who needs a whole lot of room
She's a little bitty mama that needs a whole lot of room
She can ignite your rockets and lead you onto the moon

Blake Shelton - Austin - # ONE - ZZZ

She left without leavin' a number
Said she needed to clear her mind
He figured she'd gone back to Austin
'Cause she talked about it all the time
It was almost a year before she called him up
Three rings and an answering machine is what she got
If your callin' 'bout the car I sold it
If this is Tuesday night I'm bowlin'
If you've got somethin' to sell your wastin' your time, I'm not buyin'
If it's anybody else wait for the tone you know what to do
And P.S. if this is Austin I still love you
The telephone fell to the counter
She heard but she couldn't believe
What kind of man would hang on that long
What kind of love that must be
She waited three days and then she tried again
She didn't know what she'd say
But she heard three rings and then
If it's Friday night I'm at the ball game
And first thing Saturday if it don't rain
I'm headed out to the lake and I'll be gone all weekend long
But I'll call you back when I get home on Sunday afternoon
And P.S. if this is Austin I still love you
Well this time she left her number
But not another word
When she waited by the phone on Sunday evening
And this is what he heard
If your callin' 'bout my heart it's still yours
I should have listened to it a little more
Then it wouldn't have taken me so long
To know where I belong
And by the way boy this is no machine your talkin' to
Can't you tell this is Austin and I still love you
I still love you

Hold your lovin' body close to mine
Crazy you're drivin' me crazy maybe you don't mean to
But you never know what's goin' on in a woman's mind
I know you've been hurt before
You don't know what you're lookin' for and you're lonely
If you'll only let me stay I will kiss the tears away and love you forever
Baby I'm on my knees now baby I know that you're a lady
But I wanna watch the sun come up with you
Baby hear me callin' baby come over here and love me
Hold your lovin' body close to mine
I know that you're a lady but I wanna watch the sun come up with you
I know that you're a lady but sometimes a lady needs a little lovin' to

Johnny Cash - Ballad Of A Teenage Queen - # ONE - ZZZ

There's a story in our town
Of the prettiest girl around
Golden hair and eyes of blue
How those eyes could flash at you (how those eyes could flash at you)
Boys hung 'round her by the score
But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen prettiest girl we've ever seen)
She was tops in all they said
It never once went to her head
She had everything it seems
Not a care, this teenage queen (not a care, this teenage queen)
Other boys could offer more
But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen you should be a movie queen)
He would marry her next spring
Saved his money, bought a ring
Then one day a movie scout
Came to town to take her out (came to town to take her out)
Hollywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door working at the candy store
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen see you on the movie screen)
Very soon she was a star
Pretty house and shiny car
Swimming pool and a fence around
But she missed her old home town (but she missed her old home town)
All the world was at her door
All except the boy next door who worked at the candy store
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen saddest girl we've ever seen)
Then one day the teenage star
Sold her house and all her cars
Gave up all her wealth and fame
Left it all and caught a train (left it all and caught a train)
Do I have to tell you more
She came back to the boy next door who worked at the candy store

I know you've heard
that worn out line
About love at first sight
Well, I never knew
those words were true
'Til you walked in tonight
All it took was just one look
To knock me off of my feet
I'm not a man of many words
So I'll make this short and sweet
Could you
Would you
Ain't you gonna
If I ask you you,
would you want to
Be my baby tonight
Yeah, take a chance,
slow dance
Make a little romance
Honey, it'll be alright
Girl, you got me wishin'
We were huggin' and kissin'
And holdin' each other tight
So, could you
Would you
Ain't you gonna
If I ask you,
would you want to
Be my baby tonight
I'm not trying to come on
like some rhinestone Romeo
I'm lookin' for a whole lot more
Than a one night rodeo
What can I do
To prove to you
I'm layin' it on the line
I'll even get down on my knees
Just to beg you one more time
Yeah, could you
Would you
Ain't you gonna
If I ask you, would you want to
Be my baby tonight

Diamond Rio - Beautiful Mess - # ONE - ZZZ

I'm going out of my mind these days
Like I'm walking ?round in a haze
Can't think straight, can't concentrate
I need a shave
I go to work and I look tired
The boss says son you're gonna get fired
This ain't your style
And behind my coffee cup
I just smile
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in
Spending all my time with you
There's nothing that I'd rather do
What a sweet addiction that I'm caught up in
I can't get enough
Or stop this hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in
This morning I put salt in my coffee
I put my shoes on the wrong feet
Losing my mind I swear
You might be the death of me
But I don't care
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in
Spending all my time with you
There's nothing that I'd rather do
What a sweet addiction that I'm caught up in
I can't get enough
Or stop this hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in
Is it your eyes, is it your smile
All I know is that you're driving me wild
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in
Spending all my time with you
There's nothing that I'd rather do
What a sweet addiction that I'm caught up in
I can't get enough
Or stop this hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess I'm in

Carl Smith - Before I Met You - ZZZ

I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time
But that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine
But that was before I met you

I thought I was swingin' the world by the tail
I thought I could never be blue
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought I'd been loved
But that was before I met you

I wanted to ramble and always be free
But that was before I met you
I said that no woman could ever hold me
But that was before I met you

They tell me I must reap just what I have sown
But, darling, I hope it's not true
For once I made plans about livin' alone
But that was before I met you

My baby makes me proud
Lord, don't she make me proud
she never makes a scene
By hangin' all over me In a crowd
'Cause people like to talk
Lord, don't they love to talk
But when they turn out the lights
I know she'll be leavin' with me

And when we get behind closed doors
Then she let's her hair hang down
And she makes me glad that I'm a man
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors

My baby makes me smile Lord,
don't she make me smile
she's never far away
Or too tired to say I want you

She's always a lady
Just like a lady should be
But when they turn out the lights
She's still my baby to me

'Cause when we get behind closed doors
Then she let's her hair hang down
And she makes me glad I'm a man
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors

Behind closed doors

Travis Tritt - Best of Intentions - # ONE - ZZZ

I had big plans for our future
Said I'd give you the whole world somehow
I tried making good on that promise
Thought I'd be so much further by now
Never could build you a castle
Even though you're the queen of my heart
But I've had the best of intentions from the start
Now some people think I'm a loser
'Cause I seldom get things right
But you make me feel like a winner
When you wrap me in your arms so tight
Please tell me you will remember
No matter how much I do wrong
That I had the best of intentions all along
I'd give you a ring and I promised you things
I always thought we'd do
But my best laid plan slipped right through my hands
To show my love for you
And if you could read my heart
Then you'd know without exception
It was all with the best of intentions
I gave you a ring and I promised you things
I always thought we'd do
But my best laid plan slipped right through my hands
To show my love for you
And if you could read my heart
Then you'd know without exception
It was all with the best of intentions
So here I am asking forgiveness
And praying that you'll understand
Don't think I take you for granted
Girl I know just how lucky I am
Though you deserve so much better
You won't find devotion more true
'Cause I've had the best of intentions
Girl, I've had the best of intentions
Yes, I've had the best of intentions loving you

There's something about
The way you kiss
It's in the stars, baby

All my dreams come true
And you'll always be the one
And every year to come

Baby, since you came along
My life's turned into a song, yeah
And in your misty eyes I see
Way beyond eternity, yeah
Your special kind of lovin' never fades
It just keeps on growin'
Stronger every day
The best year of my life

You took a chance on him
He broke your heart and left you crying
You lost your will to love again
Oh, you ain't even tryin'
All you need is someone
Who will love you tenderly
Well, here I am so take my hand
And bet your heart on me
You can bet your heart on me
Honey, you can be a winner
Forget about the last time out
You were just a beginner
But don't be afraid 'cause you've got it made
If you just let it be
So, lay your love down one more time
And bet your heart on me
Love is more than just a game
That's why it hurts so much to lose it
I've got something for the pain
So why don't you use it?
Lucky star's are shinning
Shinning so you can believe
That my love is a sure thing, girl
So bet your heart on me
You can bet your heart on me
Honey, you can be a winner
Forget about the last time out
You were just a beginner
But don't be afraid 'cause you've got it made
If you just let it be
So lay your love down one more time
And bet your heart on me
You can bet your heart on me

Band Perry - Better Dig Two - # ONE - ZZZ

I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you 'til I's dead
Made you wait 'til our wedding night
That's the first and the last time I wear white
So if the ties that bind ever do come loose
Tie them in a knot like a hangman's noose
'Cause I'll go to heaven or I'll go to hell
Before I'll see you with someone else
Put me in the ground
Put me six foot down
And let the stone say:
Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two
Well,
It won't be whiskey, won't be meth
It'll be your name on my last breath
If divorce or death ever do us part
The coroner will call it a broken heart
So put me in the ground
Put me six foot down
And let the stone say:
Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two
Dig two
Ooh, ooh
I took your name when I took those vows
I meant 'em back then and I mean 'em right now,
Oh, right now
If the ties that bind ever do come loose
If forever ever ends for you
If that ring gets a little too tight
You might as well read me my last rights
And let the stone say:
Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
Gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig, uh!
Heavy stone right next to mine,
We'll be together 'til the end of time
Don't you go before I do,
I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two
I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you 'til I's dead

Little Big TownBetter Man - ZZZ2017 CMA Song of the Year

I know I'm probably better off on my own
Than lovin' a man who didn't know
What he had when he had it
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
I wish it wasn't four am, standing in the mirror
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it I know
The bravest thing I ever did was run
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man
I know I'm probably better off all alone
Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute
And it's always on your terms
I'm hanging on every careless word
Hoping it might turn sweet again
Like it was in the beginning
But your jealousy, I can hear it now
You're talking down to me like I'll always be around
You push my love away like it's some kind of loaded gun
Boy, you never thought I'd run
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man
Better man
I hold onto this pride because these days it's all I have
And I gave you my best and we both know you can't say that
You can't say that
I wish you were a better man
I wonder what we would've become
If you were a better man
We might still be in love
If you were a better man
You would've been the one
If you were a better man
Yeah, yeah
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
And I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
Better man

She had a shiny little beamer with the rag top down,
Sittin' in the drive but she wouldn't get out,
The dogs were all barking and wagging around,
And I just laughed and said y'all get in,
She had on a new dress and she curled her hair,
She was looking too good not to go somewhere,
Said what you want to do baby I don't care,
We can go to the show we can stay out here
And I can take you for a ride on my big green tractor,
We can go slow or make it go faster,
Down through the woods and out to the pasture,
Long as I'm with you it really don't matter,
Climb up in my lap and drive if you want to,
Girl you know you got me to hold on to,
We can go to town but baby if you'd rather,
I'll take you for a ride on my big green tractor
Said we can fire it up and I can show you around,
Sit upon the hill and watch the sun go down,
When the fireflies are dancing and the moon comes out,
We can turn on the lights and head back to the house
Or we can take you for a ride on my big green tractor,
We can go slow or make it go faster,
Down through the woods and out to the pasture,
Long as I'm with you it really don't matter,
Climb up in my lap and drive if you want to,
Girl you know you got me to hold on to,
We can go to town but baby if you'd rather,
I'll take you for a ride on my big green tractor
Just let me dust off the seat,
Put your pretty little arms around me, hell yeah
You can climb up in my lap and drive if you want to,
Girl you know you got me to hold on to,
We can go to town but baby if you'd rather,
I'll take you for a ride on my big green tractor
Oh yeah yeah,
We can go to town,
Or we can go another round,
On my big green tractor.

Without a warning, you're outta control
The ground shakes and the oceans roll
This is the big one, there's no way to run
On the Richter scale of romance
You hit twelve and you don't stand a chance
This is the big one, I'm fallin' in love
Now it's beat, beat, beat
My heart's sending out a message
Please, please, please don't save me tonight
S.O.S. in this situation means she's outta site
No need to panic I tell myself
But I never felt this feeling with anybody else
This is the big one I'm falling in love
Now it's beat, beat, beat
My heart's sending out a message
Please, please, please don't save me tonight

No need to panic I tell myself
But I never felt this feeling with anybody else
This is the big one I'm falling in love

For out-of-towners and business men

When he runs his fingers through that jet black hair
And sometimes she forgets an order
Cause she's so struck by him she stops and stares
The got love bigger than the Beatles

And dreams of bein' a movie star
Her mama said she'd knock 'em dead
But Hollywood hasn't called so far
But he thinks she's as pretty as a picture
When she wipes down tables in her apron strings
And sometimes he forgets a chorus
Cause she's shinin' like a beauty on the silver screen
The got love bigger than the Beatles

Remember back when love first found us
We'd go slippin' out of town
And we'd love beneath the moonlight
On a blanket on the ground
I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
And we'll go walkin' once again
To that spot down by the river
Where our sweet love first began
Just because we are married
Don't mean we can't slip around
So let's walk out through the moonlight
And lay the blanket on the ground
Oh, remember how excited
We used to get when love was young
That old moon was our best buddy
We couldn't wait for night to come
Now you know you still excite me
I know you love me like I am
Just once more I wish you'd love me
On the blanket on the ground
I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
And we'll go walkin' once again
To that spot down by the river
Where our sweet love first began
Just because we are married
Don't mean we can't slip around
So let's walk out through the moonlight
And lay the blanket on the ground
Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Do do do do do do

Rascal FlattsBless The Broken Road - # ONE - ZZZ2006 Grammy Song Of The Year

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes it did
I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
And others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know it's true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yeah
And now I'm just rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
That God blessed the broken road
Ooh, ooh
That led me straight to you

Bless your heart for loving me
Ad heaven knows I don't deserve you
Bless your heart for loving me
Sweet sweet baby I'll try to be worthy of loving you

You came into my life and took the world off of my shoulders
Honey you're an angel in the eyes of this beholder
Bless your heart for loving me
More words cannot express what you are worth
Bless your heart for loving me
I know I've been given a taste of heaven right here on earth
Bless your heart

George Strait - Blue Clear Sky - # ONE - ZZZ

You swear you've had enough, you're ready to give up
On that little lie they call love, then out of the blue clear sky
Fallin' right into your hands, like rain on the desert sand
It's the last thing you had planned out of the blue clear sky.
Here she comes a walkin' talkin' true love
Sayin' I been lookin' for you love
Surprise your new love has arrived
Out of the blue clear sky.
Ain't love a funny thing, one day you're givin' up the dream
And the next you're pickin' out a ring out of the blue clear sky.
Here she comes a walkin' talkin' true love
Sayin' I been lookin' for you love
Surprise your new love has arrived
Out of the blue clear sky.

Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singin' a song
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
I never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things goin' so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly by
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue days all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue days all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothing but blue skies, do I see
Blue days all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on

Gene Autry - Blueberry Hill - ZZZ

I found my thrill on blueberry hill
On blueberry hill when I found you
The moon stood still on blueberry hill
And lingered until my dreams came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on blueberry hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on blueberry hill

Oak Ridge Boys - Bobbie Sue - # ONE - ZZZ

I heard about her from a friend of mine
He said she lived across the county line
The sweetest grape that ever grew on the vine
And now that's where I'm spending all my time
Her Daddy, Robert and her Mama, Ruth
They had a daughter they named Bobbie Sue
And now she's eighteen and she knows the truth
Nobody's gonna tell her what to do
Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobbie Sue
Can't, can't you see my love is true
I want to ma-ma-ma-ma-marry you
Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobbie Sue
I'll take her driving on a Friday night
Straight down the highway in the clear moonlight
My Chevy's humming as she holds me tight
We'll find a preacher and we'll do it right
Her Daddy told her that she'd have to wait
Her Mama said don't make a big mistake,
But we'll keep driving till we're out of state
And when they find us it'll be too late.
Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobbie Sue
Can't, can't you see my love is true
I want to ma-ma-ma-ma-marry you

What would you think if I told you
I've always wanted to hold you?
I don't know what we're afraid of
Nothing would change if we made love.
So I'll be your friend
And I'll be your lover
'Cause I know in our hearts we agree
We don't have to be one or the other
Oh, no, we could be both to each other.
Yes it's a chance that we're taking
And somebody's heart may be breaking
Oooh, but we can't stop what's inside us
Our love for each other will guide us.
So I'll be your friend
And I'll be your lover
'Cause I know in our hearts we agree
We don't have to be one or the other
I've been through you
You've been through me
Sometimes a friend is the hardest to see
And we always know when it's laid on the line
Nobody else is as easy to find
So I'll be your friend
(I'll be)
And I'll be your lover
Cause I'll be your friend

I saw the light, I've been baptized
By the fire in your touch and the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man
Well the whole town's talking
'Bout the line I'm walking
That leads right to your door
Oh how I used to roam
I was a Rolling Stone
Yeah, I used to have a wild side
They say a country-mile-wide
I'd burn those beer joints down
That's all changed now
You turned my life around
Woah, I saw the light, I've been baptized
By the fire in your touch and the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man
I used to love 'em and leave 'em
Woah, I'd brag about my freedom
How no one could tie me down
Then I met you
Now my heart beats true
Baby, you and me together
Feels more like forever
Than anything I've ever known
We're right on track
I ain't looking back
Yeah, I saw the light, I've been baptized
By the fire in your touch and the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man
I saw the light, I've been baptized
By the fire in your touch and the flame in your eyes

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you get's me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face
And I've never been this swept away
All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I'm lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away
The only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart
'Cause I can feel you breathe
It's washing over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe
In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
Closer than I've ever felt before
And I know, and you know
There's no need for words right now
I can feel you breathe
Washing over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe
I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way

You slip your finger through the tear in my t-shirt
You stirrin' up dirty in the back of my mind
You keep on flirtin'
'Cause you know that it's workin'
You stuck in my head girl writing the lines
Couldn't sing this song without you if I tried
Let's light it up like it's our last night
We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you baby
Laying right here, naked in my bed

You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Girl when you want it
You know that I'm on it
You know that I love lovin' up on you
Let's hit the switch and let our shadows dance
And light it up like it's our last chance
We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you baby
Laying right here, dreaming in my bed

I can hear the neighbors
They're arguin' again
And there hasn't been peace on our street
Since who knows when
I don't mean to listen in
But the shoutin' is so loud
I turn up the radio to drown it out
And silently I say a little prayer
But for the grace of God go I
I must've been born a lucky guy
Heaven only knows how I've been blessed
With the gift of your love
And I look around and all I see
Is your happiness embracing me
Oh Lord I'd be lost
But for the grace of God
I can see that old man
He's walking past our door
And I've been told that he's rich
But he seems so poor
'Cause no one comes to call on him
And his phone it never rings
He wanders through his empty home
Surrounded by his things
And silently I say a little prayer, yes I do
But for the grace of God go I
I must've been born a lucky guy
Heaven only knows how I've been blessed
With the gift of your love
And I look around and all I see
Is your happiness embracing me
Oh Lord I'd be lost
But for the grace of God
I look around and all I see
Is your happiness embracing me
Oh Lord I'd be lost
But for the grace of God
Oh Lord I'd be lost
But for the grace of God yeah
Ooo ooo I'd be lost

Kenny Rogers - Buy Me a Rose - # ONE - ZZZ

He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
A three car garage, her own credit cards
He pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss good night
If he could only read her mind, she'd say:
Buy me a rose, call me from work
Open a door for me, what would it hurt
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
These are the little things I need the most in my life
Now the days have grown to years of feeling all alone
And she can't help but wonder what she's doing wrong
Cause lately she'd try anything to turn his head
Would it make a difference if she said:
Buy me a rose, call me from work
Open a door for me, what would it hurt
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
These are the little things I need the most in my life
And the more that he lives the less that he tries
To show her the love that he hold inside
And the more that she gives the more that he sees
This is a story of you and me
So I bought you a rose on the way home from work
Opened the door to a heart that I hurt
And I hope you notice this look in my eyes
Cause I'm gonna make things right
I'm gonna hold you tonight
Do all those little things
For the rest of your life.

Travis Tritt - Can I Trust You With My Heart - # ONE - 1993
When you meet that certain someone you been searchin' hard to find
It's a new love full of passion that can sometimes make you blind
I don't mind bein' swept away if I know right from the start
So before we go much further girl can I trust you with my heart
In the time we've spent together I have learned to trust in you
So many things you've given before I even asked you to
But reality and romance are sometimes far apart
So what I really need to know is can I trust you with my heart
Can I cast my cares upon you can you stand a heavy load
Can I count on you to walk me down that long and winding road
If you promise me these simple things I can guaranty
You can always count on me
Can I cast my cares upon you can you stand a heavy load
Can I count on you to walk me down that long and winding road
When two hearts solely surrender and are sworn to understand
It completes a perfect union between a woman and a man
So please don't misunderstand me I don't want to go too far
Without knowing just one answer can I trust you with my heart
Please girl give me just one answer can I trust you with my heart

Ronnie Milsap - Carolina Dreams - # ONE - 1983
I can smell the pines sweet Carolina's on my mind
I still feel that mountain breeze whisperin' through the trees
Tears fell from her eyes I held her as we said goodbye
She knew I didn't want to go but here I am tonight alone
Dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee
And someday soon I'll have her here with me
Until then she knows I miss her and tonight I'll go to sleep
Dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee
The cotton mill shut down they laid off folks for miles around
I had to leave to find some work the hardest part was leaving her
Nashville Tennessee it'd be beautiful if she was with me
But alone it's just another place till I close my eyes and see her face
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams
Though we're miles apart we're sharing the same moon
When it's shining on her it's shining on me too
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee
And someday soon I'll have her here with me
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams Carolina dreams, Carolina dreams

Porter Wagoner - Caroll County Accident - ZZZ
Carroll County's pointed out as kinda square
The biggest thing that happens is the county fair
I guess that's why it seemed like such a big event
What we all call the Carroll County accident

It happened on the highway just inside the line
Walter Browning lost his life and for a time
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die
But she lived long enough for her to testify

Walter Browning was a happy married man
He wore a golden wedding ring upon his hand
But it was gone, nobody knew just where it went
He lost it in the Carroll County accident

Mary Ellen testified he thumbed her down
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town?
Well, no one even doubted what she said was true
'Cause she was well respected in the county, too

I went down to see the wreck like all the rest
The bloody seats, the broken glass, the tangled mess
But I found something no one else had even seen
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled-up machine

A little match box circled by a rubber band
And inside was the ring from Walter Browning's hand
And it took a while before I knew just what it meant
The truth about the Carroll County accident.
Songwriter(s): dark of night I dropped the ring into a well
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell
The secret of the Carroll County accident
'Cause the county ordered Dad a marble monument

Yes, I lost him in the Carroll County accident.

I don't take my whiskey to extremes
Don't believe in chasin' crazy dreams
My feet are planted firmly on the ground
But darlin' when you come around
I get carried away by the look by the light in your eyes
Before I even realize the ride I'm on
Baby I'm long gone
I get carried away nothin' matters but bein' with you
Like a feather flyin' high up in the sky on a windy day
I get carried away
It might seem like an ordinary night
Same ol' stars same ol' moon up high
But when I see you standin' at your door
Nothin's ordinary anymore
I get carried away by the look by the light in your eyes
Before I even realize the ride I'm on

Carrying your love with me
It's my strength, for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
Carrying your love with me
On a lonely highway, stuck out in the rain
Darling all I have to do is speak your name
The clouds rollback and the waters part
The sun starts shining in my heart for you
You're right there in everything I do
'Cause I'm carrying your love with me

It started way back in third grade
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow, and her ponytail
She kissed me on the school bus but told me not to tell
Next day I chased her around the playground
Cross the monkey bars to the merry-go-round
And Emmylou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote
Do you love me do you want to be my friend?
And if you do
Well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no
Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain't much changed, I still chase Emmylou
Up and down the hall, around the bed in our room
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years together she still gets to me
Can't believe it's been that long ago
When we got started with just a little note
Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do
Well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no
Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do
Well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes

That is where I found my little Cherokee maid
The memory of the that night of love, is lingering yet
And I know I never will forget

My little Cherokee maiden, I love her so
And though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her
For anybody else's heart
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies
We'll ride to paradise
My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee maiden and me

My little Cherokee maiden, I love her so
And though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her
For anybody else's heart
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies
We'll ride to paradise

Cole Swindell - Chillin It - # ONE - 2014
I got my shades on, top back,
Rollin with the music jacked,
One on the wheel, one around you baby
Little sun left to burn in the blue sky,
Shinnin' of the cross
Hangin' from the mirror of my ride,
Breeze blowin' in, your hair blowin' round
You're scannin' through the stations
Lookin' for that country sound
The good stuffs iced up in the back seat,
Nowhere to go, nowhere to be
I got my shades on, top back,
Rollin' with the music jacked,
One on the wheel, one around you baby
Sunset, I bet there's a chance we can get
Sure enough tangled up, laid back and lazy
Pour it on easy now don't spill a bit
Nothin' but time tonight, let's get to killin' it
Long as I'm rockin' with you girl
You know I'm cool with just chillin' it
Nothin' but two lane country on up ahead
Girl you so fine
I wouldn't mind if this is all we did
You got me high on kisses, you got me missin' signs
Hard lookin' left when my world is on my right
I got my shades on, top back,
Rollin' with the music jacked,
One on the wheel, one around you baby
Sunset, I bet there's a chance we can get
Sure enough tangled up, laid back and lazy
Pour it on easy now don't spill a bit
Nothin' but time tonight lets get to killin' it
Long as I'm rockin' with you girl
You know I'm cool with just chillin' it
Nothin' like a little you and me low key
Right now I'm right where I wanna be
I got my shades on, top back,
Rollin' with the music jacked,
One on the wheel, one around you baby
Sunset, I bet there's a chance we can get
Sure enough tangled up, laid back and lazy
Pour it on easy now don't spill a bit
Nothin' tonight but time lets get to killin' it
Long as I'm rockin' with you girl
You know I'm cool with just chillin' it
Yeah I love rockin' with you
When girl we're just chillin' it

Shenandoah - Church On Cumberland Road The - # ONE - 1989
Just about a mile off-a one-oh-nine,
There's a little church sittin' back in the pines.
I promised that girl she was gonna be mine;
I wouldn't be surprised if she was standin' there cryin'.
Wo-ah, I didn't know this bored-out Ford could go so slow.
Wo-ah, You got to put your foot down on the floor,
'Yeah we've been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on Cumberland Road.
Billy's passed out in the back, But I think he's alive.
Bobby's got his head hangin' over the side.
Here we are doin' only ninety-five.
What's the matter with you, man? I thought you said you could
drive!
Sweeter than the dew on a honeysuckle vine,
Hotter than noon on the Fourth of July,
Cutest little girl that I ever have known
Waitin' at the church on Cumberland Road.
Wo-ah, I didn't know this bored-out Ford could go so slow.
Wo-ah, You got to put your foot down on the floor,
'Yeah we've been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on Cumberland Road.

Alabama - Close Enough To Perfect - # ONE - 1982
Sometimes the morning coffee's way too strong.
and Sometimes what she says she says all wrong.
Right or Wrong, she's there beside me,
Like only a friend would be!
And that's close enough to perfect for me.
now, She's been known to wear her pants too tight.
And drinkin' puts her out just like a light.
Heaven knows she's not an angel,
but she'd really like to be.
And that's close enough to perfect for me.
She kisses me each mornin'
And smiles a sleepy smile!
She don't have to say it.
I can see it in her eyes!
Don't you worry about my woman,
And what you think she aught to be!
She's close enough to perfect for me!
Sometimes she gets down and starts to cry!
But then again a lady has a right.
She's everything I ever wanted!
She's all I'll ever need!
She's close enough to perfect for me!
She kisses me each mornin',
And smiles a sleepy smile!
She don't have to say it.
I can see it in her eyes!
Don't you worry about my woman,
And what you think she aught to be!
She's close enough to perfect for me!
Whooooa... She's close enough to perfect... for me!

Alabama - Closer You Get The - # ONE - 1983
The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall.
The things that you say to me
The look on your face
Brings out the man in me
Do I see a trace in your eyes of love
The closer you get, (oh baby) the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, (em hmm) the further I fall
Could I be dreamin'
Is this really real
'Cause there's something magic
The way that I feel in your arms tonight.
The closer you get, (oh yeah) the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, (em hmm) the further I fall.
Keep fallin', oh, yeah, yeah, keep fallin',
Mm, fallin', oh, yeah, yeah, I'm fallin'.
Yes, I'm fallin' (Yes, I'm fallin' Yes, I'm fallin')
Yes, I'm fallin' (Yes, I'm fallin' Yes, I'm fallin')
Yes, we're fallin' (Yes, we're fallin' Yes, we're fallin').
The closer you get, (oh yeah) the further I fall (um hmm)
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
(Um hm) The closer you get, (em hmm) the further I fall.
The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all.
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall.

Conway Twitty - Clown The - # ONE - 1982
You love the way it makes me feel when I can't catch my breath
Like walkin' on a high wire, Lord, it scares me half to death
You're always high above me and I'm always fallin' down
Our love's just a circus baby, and I'm just the clown
And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown
'Cause our loves a circus and I'm just the clown
Everyone's in love with you, but they just look at me and laugh
And I'll bet when they see me cry, they think it's just an act
Ah, but someday when it's over and we bring the big top down
You can say it was one big circus and I was just the clown
And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown
'Cause you love the circus, but you don't love the clown

Dierks Bentley - Come A Little Closer - # ONE - 2005
Come a little closer baby
I feel like layi'n you down
On a bed of sweet surrender
Where we can work it all out
There ain't nothin' that love can't fix
Girl it's right here at our fingertips
So come a little closer baby
I feel like layin' you down
Come a little closer baby
I feel like lettin' go
Of everything that stands between us
And the love we used to know
I want to touch you like a cleansin' rain
And let it wash all the hurt away
So come a little closer baby
I feel like lettin' go
If there's still a chance then take my hand
And we'll steal away
Off into the night 'til we make things right
The sun's gonna rise on a better day
Come a little closer baby
I feel like strippin' it down
Back to the basics of you and me
And what makes the world go 'round
Every inch of you against my skin
I want to be stronger than we've ever been
So come a little closer baby
I feel like strippin' it down
Come a little closer baby
Just a little bit closer baby
Come a little closer baby
I feel like layin' you down

Ian & Sylvia - Come In Stranger - ZZZ
She said come in stranger
It's good to have you home
I hurried thru 'cause I knew it was you
An I saw your dog waggin' his tail
Honey why didn't you let me know by mail
You been gone so long

She said come in stranger
I know you're weary from all the miles
Just sit right there in your easy chair
Tell me all about the places you've been
How long it'll be before you leave again
I hope it's a long long while

She said come in stranger
Everything 'round home is fine
I've watched and 'ana waited for you to get back
And I missed you all the time

(Instrumental)

She said come in stranger
How I miss you when you're gone
I walk the floor an I watch the door
And then I lie awake 'an wonder where you can be
Give anything to have ya here with me
It's so lonesome all alone

She said come in stranger
Ah! won't you listen to my plea
Stay long enough so the one I love
Won't be a stranger to me

Ya! she said come in stranger
Ah won't you listen to my plea
Stay long enough so the one I love
Won't be a stranger to me

If you're in a bind, with a troubled mind
I'm a mountain, come on and climb
Because you look so good, to be so down
It won't take much girl, to turn it all around
Come with me, come with me
The feeling's free, just come with me
Will get on a cloud girl, and ride it high
Say hello sun, as we sail bye
I'll take you where, you've never been before
Once we're there, you'll cry for more
If it's dark in your world, come walk in mine
My love's a light babe, it's on all the time
Come with me, come with me
The feeling's free, just come with me
Will get on a cloud girl, and ride it high
Say hello sun, as we sail bye
Come with me, come with me
The feeling's free, just come with me
Will get on a cloud girl, and ride it high
Say hello sun, as we sail bye

Dottie West - Country Sunshine - ZZZ
You say you love me and its inviting, to go where life is more exciting
But I was raised on country sunshine
I was raised on country sunshine, green grass beneath my feet
Running through the fields of daisies, wading through the creek
You love me and its inviting, to go where life is more exciting
But I was raised on country sunshine
I was raised on country sunshine, I'm happy with the simple things
A Saturday night dance, a picture show and the joy that a bluebird brings
I love you please believe me, I won't want you to ever leave me
But I was raised on country sunshine
There's just something bout the morning that make each day a joy to see
The nighttime brings a peaceful feeling that rests inside of me
I love you please believe me, I won't want you to ever leave me
But I was raised on country sunshine
You love me and its inviting, to go where life is more exciting
But I was raised on country sunshine
Mmm, mmm I was raised on country sunshine
Oh, oh I was raised on country sunshine
Mmm, mmm I was raised on country sunshine

Dixie Chicks - Cowboy Take Me Away - # ONE - 2000
I said, I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
In a blanket made of stars
Oh, it sounds good to me
I said, cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall
I wanna be the only one for miles and miles
Except for maybe you and your simple smile
Oh, it sounds good to me
Yes, it sounds so good to me
Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
I said, I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh, it sounds so good to me
Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away
Closer to you

Ronnie Milsap - Cowboys And Clowns - # ONE - 1980
I'll always remember the song they were playin'
The first time we danced and I knew
As we swayed to the music and held to each other
I fell in love with you.
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life
Would you be my partner every night
When were together it feels so right
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life.
I'll always remember that magic moment
When I held you close to me
As we moved together
I knew forever you're all I'll ever need.
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life
Would you be my partner every night
When were together it feels so right
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life.
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life
Would you be my partner every night
When were together it feels so right
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life...

Baby why you wanna cry?
You really oughta know that I
Just have to walk away sometimes
We're gonna do what lovers do
We're gonna have a fight or two
But I ain't ever changin' my mind
Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
And I wouldn't dream of goin' nowhere
Silly woman, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you like crazy, girl
Wouldn't miss a single day
I'd probably just fade away
Without you, I'd lose my mind
Before you ever came along
I was living life all wrong
Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
And I wouldn't dream of goin' nowhere
Silly woman, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you like crazy, girl
Crazy girl
Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
And I wouldn't dream of goin' nowhere
Silly woman, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately,
I love you like
Crazy, girl, don't you know that I love you?
And I wouldn't dream of goin' nowhere
Silly woman, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you like crazy, girl

Ricochet - Daddy's Money - # ONE - 1996
Can't concentrate on the preacher preaching
My attention span done turned off
I'm honed in on that angel singing
Up there in the choir loft
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
More laughs than a stack of comic books
A wild imagination
A college education
Add it all up it's a deadly combination
She's a good bass fisher
A dynamite kisser
Country as a turnip green
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
And look who's lookin' at me
Her second cousin was my third grade teacher
I used to cut her grandma's grass
Back then she was nothin' but knees and elbows
Golly did she grow up fast
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
More laughs than a stack of comic books
A wild imagination
A college education
Add it all up it's a deadly combination
She's a good bass fisher
A dynamite kisser
Country as a turnip green
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
And look who's lookin' at me
Lord if you got any miracles handy
Maybe you could grant me one
Just let me walk down the aisle
And say I do
To that angel with a choir robe on
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
More laughs than a stack of comic books
A wild imagination
A college education
Add it all up it's a deadly combination
She's a good bass fisher
A dynamite kisser
Country as a turnip green
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
And look who's lookin' at me
She's got her daddy's money
Her mama's good looks
And she's lookin' at me

I'm having day dreams bout night things
In the middle of the afternoon
And while my hands make a living
My mind's home loving you
I'm having day dreams about night things
In the middle of the afternoon
And every night you make my daydreams come true
Well all day long while I'm working in town
Time slows down to a crawl
When I'm not thinking about you
I'm checking the clock on the wall
Then it's goodbye factory and hello loving
There's a smile across my face
'Cause I'm back in the arms of your sweet love
Where my thoughts have been all day
I'm having day dreams bout night things
In the middle of the afternoon
And while my hands make a living my mind's home loving you
I'm having day dreams about night things

And every night you make my daydreams come true

Randy Travis - Deeper Than the Holler - # ONE - 1989
Well I've heard those city singers singin' 'bout how they can love
Deeper than the oceans higher than the stars above
Well I come from the country and I know I ain't seen it all
But I heard that oceans salty and the stars they sometimes fall
But that would not do justice to the way I feel for you
So I have to sing this song about all the things I knew
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the rivers
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of the whippoorwill
From the back roads to the Broadway shows with a million miles between
There's a least a million love songs that people love to sing
And everyone is different and everyone's the same
So this is just another way of sayin' the same thing
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the rivers
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of the whippoorwill
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the rivers
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of the whippoorwill

Baby last night was hands down
One of the best nights
That I've had no doubt
Between the bottle of wine
And the look in your eyes and the Marvin Gaye
Then we danced in the dark under September stars in the pourin' rain
And I know that I can't ever tell you enough
That all I need in this life is your crazy love
If I never get to see the Northern lights
Or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night
Oh if all I got is your hand in my hand
Baby I could die a happy man
A happy man, baby, hmm
Baby and that red dress brings me to my knees
Oh but that black dress makes it hard to breathe
You're a saint, you're a goddess, the cutest, the hottest, a masterpiece
It's too good to be true, nothing better than you
In my wildest dreams
And I know that I can't ever tell you enough
That all I need in this life is your crazy love
If I never get to see the Northern lights
Or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night
Oh if all I got is your hand in my hand
Baby I could die a happy man yeah
I don't need no vacation, no fancy destination
Baby you're my great escape
We could stay at home, listen to the radio
Or dance around the fireplace
And if I never get to build my mansion in Georgia
Or drive a sports car up the coast of California
Well if all I got is your hand in my hand
Baby I could die a happy man
Baby I could die a happy man
Oh, I could die a happy man
You know I could girl

Rollin' down a backwoods, Tennessee byway, one arm on the wheel
Holdin' my lover with the other, a sweet, soft, southern thrill
Worked hard all week, got a little jingle, on a Tennessee Saturday night
Couldn't feel better, I'm together with my Dixieland delight
Spend my dollar, parked in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
Hold her uptight, make a little lovin'
A little turtle dovin' on a Mason Dixon night
Fits my life, oh so right, my Dixieland delight
Whitetail buck deer, munchin' on clover, redtail hawk settin' on a limb
Chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog, free as the feelin' in the wind
Home grown country girl, gonna give me a whirl
On a Tennessee Saturday night
Lucky as a seven, livin' in Heaven, with my Dixieland delight
Spend my dollar, parked in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
Hold her uptight, make a little lovin'
A little turtle dovin' on a Mason Dixon night
Fits my life, oh so right, my Dixieland delight
Spend my dollar, parked in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight

Ernest Ashworth - The DJ Cried - ZZZ
Today I gave my record to the DJ
In my car on my way home it started to play
It told how much I love you and how your love had died
And before it got started good the DJ cried

It takes a sad sad song to make a DJ cry
But the misery he heard from me broke him up inside
I guess he couldn't stand the way the way I seemed to die
Just think how I was hurting if it made the DJ cry

The words of the song were just to you
I let you know I never did get over you
Each word came out so broken just the way I felt inside
And I knew I would get through to you when the DJ cried

Repeat #2

If I came by 'round nine tonight
Baby, doubt would it be all right?
I've got it bad, boy, I must confess
Tell you now, honey, would you mind
If I took your hand in mine
Could I hold you? Just say, yes
C'mon, it's on the tip of your tongue
So easily done, such a small request
Oh babe, you got something to say
Don't keep me waiting, don't make me guess
Oh, do you love me? Just say yes
You don't have to go on and on
'Cuz you know what I really want
And that's your love, no more, no less
There's only one thing I need to hear
When you whisper in my ear
And that's one word, just say yes
C'mon, it's on the tip of your tongue

Keith Whitley - Don't Close Your Eyes - # ONE - 1988
I know you loved him, a long time ago
Even now in my arms, you still want him I know
But darling this time, your memories die
When you hold me tonight, don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes, let it be me
Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
Darling just once, let yesterday go
And you'll find more love than you'll ever know
Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes
Maybe I've, been a fool, holding on all this time
Lying here in your arms, knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping someday, that you'll see the light
Let it be tonight and don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes, let it be me
Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
Darling just once, let yesterday go
And you'll find more love than you'll ever know
Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes, let it be me
Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
Darling just once, let yesterday go
And you'll find more love than you'll ever know

Charley Pride - Don't Fight the Feelings of Love - # ONE - 1973
Don't ya, don't ya, don't ya fight the feelings of love
'Cause love is something nobody ever gets enough of
So reach out your hand, take in all the sunshine from above
Well, now love is believing so don't fight the feelings
Don't fight the feelings of love
A boy and a girl in a big spinning world
Upside down in love from the start
Sunny days and laughing skies true love in both their eyes
Spending happy good times in the park
Learning all about living taking and the giving
Love is growing stronger every day
Well, now there'll never be another 'cause they're trusting each other
Good love seems to just work out that way
I said now don't ya, don't ya, don't ya fight the feelings of love
'Cause love is something nobody ever gets enough of
So reach out your hand, take in all the sunshine from above
Well, now love is believing so don't fight the feelings
Don't fight the feelings of love
Don't fight the feelings, don't fight the feelings
Don't fight the feelings of love

Rhett Akins - Don't Get Me Started - # ONE - 1996
Well it was January, not the Fourth Of July
A snow white morning and a clear blue sky
We were miles from nowhere
But somehow or other, love found us
We were laughing and looking
In each other's hearts
Talking and touching, trying so hard
Not to notice what was going on all around us
But there were fireworks flashing
Thunder clapping, big waves crashing on the shore
There were church bells ringing and angels singing
All gathered around heaven's door
Then we kissed and I saw the light
I could go opn about this all night
Hey darling, if you don't wanna hear how the Waters parted then don't get me started
No don't get me started, I'm warning you
Unless you've got an extra week or two
You know darn well how I get when you get me going
No, don't get me talking about us
About the day we fell in love
Unless you're longing for
A dose of strong emotions
But there were fireworks flashing
Thunder clapping, big waves crashing on the shore
There were church bells ringing and angels singing
All gathered around heaven's door
Then we kissed and I saw the light
I could go opn about this all night
Hey darling, if you don't wanna hear how the Waters parted then don't get me started
Then we kissed and I saw the light
I could go on about this all night
Hey darling, if you don't wanna hear how the
Waters parted then don't get me started
Don't get me started
Don't get me started

Kenny Chesney - Don't Happen Twice - # ONE - 2001
I haven't seen you in forever
You haven't changed a bit
You didn't think that I'd remember
But how could I forget
We sang 'Bobby McGee' on the hood of my car
Made a wish on every star
In that clear September sky
One bottle of wine, two Dixie cups
At three a.m. I fell in love
For the first time in my life
And that's somethin'
That just don't happen twice
To this day I still taste that first kiss
How I prayed it wouldn't end
In a way seeing you like this
I guess it never really did
We sang 'Bobby McGee' on the hood of my car
Made a wish on every star
In that clear September sky
One bottle of wine, two Dixie cups
At three a.m. I fell in love
For the first time in my life
And that's somethin'
That just don't happen twice
One bottle of wine, two Dixie cups
At three a.m. I fell in love
For the first time in my life
And that's somethin'
That just don't happen twice
That's somethin', baby that's somethin'
Oh that's somethin'
That just don't happen twice

Slim Willet - Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes - # ONE - 1952
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Don't let the moon break your heart
Love blooms at night
In daylight it dies
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Or keep your heart from me
For some day I'll return
And you know you're the only one I'll ever love
Too many nights
Too many stars
Too many moons could change your mind
If I'm gone too long
Don't forget where you belong
When the stars come out
Remember you are mine
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Don't let the moon break your heart
Love blooms at night
In daylight it dies
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Or keep your heart from me
For some day I'll return
And you know you're the only one
I'll ever love
Too many miles
Too many days
Too many nights to be alone
So please keep your heart
While we're apart
No standing in the moonlight when I'm gone
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Don't let the moon break your heart
Love blooms at night
In daylight it dies
Don't let the stars get in your eyes
Or keep your heart from me
For some day I'll return
And you know your the only one I'll ever love

You're on my mind I'm in the dark
You're taking your time I'm falling apart
Girl you're holding mine in your hands and you know it
I'll get it right if you give me the chance to get closer
I'll give you my heart if that's what you're after
I'll give you my love if that's all the matters to get over
Yeah that's all right with me if you want to play hard with me
Don't make it easy for me
Down on my knees take a look at me
I'm easy to please so why can't you be
Girl you're holding mine in your hands and you know it
I'll get it right if you give me the chance to get closer
I'll give you my heart if that's what you're after
I'll give you my love if that's all the matters to get over
Yeah that's all right with me if you want to play hard with me

Lee Greenwood - Don't Underestimate My Love for You - # ONE - 1986
If I never say the words you want to hear
When I hold you near
Maybe they get said another way
A kiss can mean as much to me as words could ever do
You know I live for you
You shouldn't ever doubt how I feel about you
Don't underestimate my love for you, darlin'
It's always there, it's just the way care
If you believe in me, then show more faith in us
Don't underestimate my love
When you have a need for me & I'm not there
You wonder if I'm where
I could meet someone who'd take me from you
In you heart & soul you know I'm the one you can't lose
You know I live for you
You shouldn't ever doubt how I feel about you

Clay Walker - Dreaming With My Eyes Open - # ONE - 1994
I spent half my life on bended knee
Begging somebody to change
And the other half prayin' to God
That they never would
And all it got me was twice as lost
When it all turned out the same
But all that beggin' finally did somebody good
I used to dream all night
Of a day that was gone
But come the mornin' light
Forever from now on
Gunna do my dreamin' with my eyes wide open
I'll do my looking back
With my eyes closed
We can do some livin'
Or spend our whole lives hopin'
End the end we're left with
The one we chose
So I'll do my dreaming with my eyes wide open
Every time the world moved on
I fell a little further behind
From runnin' back or followin someone home
Until I learned that one step forward
Will take you further on
Than a thousand back or a million that ain't
Your own
I used to dream all night
Of a day that was gone
But come the mornin' light
Forever from now on
Gunna do my dreamin' with my eyes wide open
I'll do my looking back
With my eyes closed
We can do some livin'
Or spend our whole lives hopin'
End the end we're left with
The one we chose
So I'll do my dreaming with my eyes wide open
We can do some livin'
or spend our whole lives hopin'
In the end we're left with
The ones we chose
So I'll do my dreaming with my eyes wide open

David Lee Murphy - Dust on the Bottle - # ONE - 1995
Creole Williams lived down a dirt road
Made homemade wine like nobody I know
Dropped by one Friday night and said, Can you help me, Creole?
Got a little girl waitin' on me and I want to treat her right
I got what you need son, it's sittin down in the cellar
He reached through the cobwebs as he turned on the light and said
There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don't let it fool ya about what's inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It's one of those things that gets sweeter with time
She was sittin' in the porch swing as I pulled up the driveway
My ole heart was racing as she climbed inside
She slid over real close and drove down to the lake road
Watched the sun fade in that big red sky
I reached under the front seat and said, Now here's something special
It's just been waiting for a night like tonight
There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don't let it fool ya about what's inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It's one of those things that gets sweeter with time
You're still with me, and we've made some memories
After all these years, there's one thing I've found
Some say good love, well, it's like a fine wine
It keeps getting better as the days go by
There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don't let it fool ya about what's inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It's one of those things that gets sweeter with time
There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don't let it fool ya about what's inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It's one of those things that gets sweeter with time
Don't let it fool ya

I know from the feelin' that it comes from the heart
Easy lovin', every day's Thanksgivin'
To count all my blessings, I wouldn't know where to start

So real-to-life it seems
For upon your pretty shoulders
There's a pair of angel wings
Easy lovin', seein's believin'
Life with you's like livin' in a beautiful dream

Eddy Arnold - Easy On The Eyes - # ONE - 1952
You're my lovin' honey, and you're worth your weight in money
You're so easy on the eyes
And we walk to town, why, everybody turns around
'Cause you're so easy on the eyes
You got a face that could win first place
In any beauty contest held
And baby, everytime we kiss
I yell I hope that heaven's gonna be like this
And when you goin' swimmin', you're the envy of the women
You're so easy on the eyes
Boys start making passes, old men throw away their glasses
You're so easy on the eyes
I'm gonna treat your hand to a wedding band
And grab myself a prize
'Cause you're easy, easy on the eyes
I think your figure's great, it's what is known as sisslebait
'Cause it's so easy on the eyes
Your clothes you sure take pride in
But it's what you put inside 'em
That's so easy the eyes
You've got a smile that can drive me wild
It makes me want to hug you tight
And when you roll those eyes at me
I started lightin' up like a Christmas tree
When your schoolin' days were done
Your schoolmates voted you the one most easy on the eyes
And when it comes to lovin', you're the queen of turtle dovin'
And I'll the world I'm wise
I'm gonna treat your hand to a wedding band
And grab myself a prize
'Cause you're easy, easy on the eyes

Charlie's got a gold watch
Don't seem like a whole lot
After thirty years of drivin'
Up and down the interstate
But Charlie's had a good life
And Charlie's got a good wife
And after tonight she'll no longer
Be countin' the days
Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs on the all night radio
And he'll spend the rest if his life
With the one that he loves
They'll buy a Winnebago
Set out to find America
Do a lotta catchin' up
A little at a time
With pieces of the old dream
They're gonna light the old flame
Doin' what they please
Leavin every other reason behind
Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs on the all night radio
And he'll spend the rest if his life

Hank Williams Jr - Eleven Roses - # ONE - 1972
I guess you noticed there is only eleven roses
I chose them from our garden where they grew
Take the roses and look into the mirror
And the twelfth rose will be looking back at you.
There's just something about a spray of roses
To a woman they say more than man can say
After what I've done you may not keep the roses
But I just thought I would send them anyway.

Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty face
I long to touch your lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
Don't know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you
I remember when we shared a life together
You gave me strength and love, and life that felt brand new
You so far away I have to say I'm feeling blue
Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you
Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty face
I long to touch your lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
Don't know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you
Well it's been said before that I've caused many heartaches
And I wonder if that parts really true
Be it right or wrong it feels my heart will surely break
Oh Elizabeth I hope you understand
Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty face
I long to touch your lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
Don't know if I could ever live my life without you

And stronger than the wild oak tree
That's how I will hold you, oh darling, endlessly
Oh my love, you are my Heaven
You are my kingdom, you are my crown

Faithful as a morning sunrise
And sacred as a love can be
That's how I will love you, oh darling, endlessly

Thinking of the faces I've seen
Back when I was young and green
I was falling back then
Now I'm workin' on building a fire
And flirtin' with that old desire
And fallin' again into the wind
I fall in and again
I fall in love again
I'm fallin' again.
Well, you'd think that I would learn by now
To keep from falling somehow
But I'm fallin' again
'Cause when I caught that look in your eyes
That's when I realized
I was fallin' again into the wind
I fall in and again
I fall in love again.
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again.
I fall in and again
I fall in love again
Fallin' again into the wind.
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again
Fall, fall, fall, fallin' again.
I fall in and again
I fall in love again
Fallin' again into the wind...

Wondering why you even put it on
I know you think you do but, baby, you don't need it
Wish that you could see what I see it when it's gone
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder
Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
Yeah, yeah, to me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling
Yeah, smile and shake your head as if you don't believe me
I'll just sit right here and let you take me back
I'm on that gravel road, look at me
On my way to pick you up; you're standing on the front porch
Looking just like that, remember that?
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder
Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
Yeah, yeah, to me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom

Dierks Bentley - Feel That Fire - # ONE - 2009
She wants her nails painted black
She wants the toy in the crackerjack
She wants to ride the bull at the rodeo
She wants to wear my shirt to bed
She wants to make every stray a pet
'N drive around in my truck with no place to go
But she needs to feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She's everything I want and more
A real desire, does she know I'd walk alone out on the wire
To make her feel that fire
She wants a cabin in the woods
She wants to stand where nobody stood
And someday she wants a couple kids of her own
She wants to make love on a train
And someday's she only wants a break
Hey but she wants what she wants, but man I know I know I know
She needs to feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She's everything I want and more
A real desire, does she know I'd walk alone out on the wire
To make her feel that fire
Yeah, feel that fire
So as long as there's a breath to take
A smile to share, a prayer to pray
A chance to hold her hand to fan the flame
She's gonna feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She's everything I want and more
A real desire, does she know I'd walk alone out on the wire
To make her feel that fire
Oh feel that fire
She wants her nails painted black
She wants the toy in the crackerjack
She wants to ride the bull at the rodeo

Lying here beside you I hear the echoes of your sighs
Promise me you'll stay with me and keep me warm tonight
So hold me close and love me, give my heart a smile
Mmm feels so right. Feels so right.
Your body feels so gentle and my passion rises high

T G Sheppard - Finally - # ONE - 1982
I wish my mind wouldn't argue with my heart, it splits the
Day apart, into time well spent and time just thrown away,
I wish my heart would please make up my mind, I'm wasting so
Much time, gotta catch a glimpse of how it's gonna be.
When finally, I look inside your eyes and see,
Reflections of yourself in me, the way you always said it
Would be, when finally, I'm loving you like you love me, it
Happened oh so easily, I looked at you and it came to me,
Finally.
This Ferris wheel just keeps on spinning round, playing mind
Games with the ground, can we stop this time, or must we go
Again, I see you standing waiting just outside, come and
Get me off this ride, wanna lose myself in being here with you.
When finally, I look inside your eyes and see,
Reflections of yourself in me, the way you always
Said it would be, when finally, I'm loving you like you
Love me, it happened oh so easily, I looked at you and it
Came to me, finally

If only you were here
To whisper sweet things too
I'd tell you how much I love you
How I'm longing to hold you tight
The first thing every morning

Oh, I'd tell you how much I love you
How I'm longing to hold you tight

Johnny Cash - Flesh And Blood - # ONE - 1971
Beside a singing mountain stream
Where the willow grew
Where the silver leaf of maple
Sparkled in the morning dew
I braided twigs of willows
Made a string of buckeye beads
But flesh and blood needs flesh And blood
And you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood
And you're the one I need
I leaned against a bark of birch
And I breathed the honey dew
I saw a North-bound flock of geese
Against a sky of baby blue
Beside the lily pads
I carved a whistle from a reed
Mother Nature's quite a lady
But you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood
And you're the one I need.
A cardinal sang just for me
And I thanked him for the song
Then the sun went slowly down the west
And I had to move along
These were some of the things
On which my mind and spirit feed
But flesh and blood need flesh and blood
And you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood
And you're the one I need.
So when this day was ended
I was still not satisfied
For I knew everything I touched
Would wither and would die
And love is all that will remain
And grow from all these seeds
Mother Nature's quite a lady
But you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood
And you're the one I need.

You take me half the way to heaven
And you know that's not enough
I'm just a fool for your love
You've got me wanting to be near you
You know I want this love to grow
You say you like to keep things simple
And you don't want any tides
But I see a different story in your eyes
I'm just a fool for you, baby
I'm just a fool for your love
You take me half the way to heaven
And you know it's not enough
I'm just a fool for your love
You try to act like it don't matter
You said you've felt this way before
Say you only want your freedom
And you don't need nothin' more
Here you are just knocking at my door
I'm just a fool for you, baby
I'm just a fool for your love
You take me half the way to heaven
And you know it's not enough
I'm just a fool for your love
You take me half the way to heaven
And you know it's not enough
I'm just a fool for your love
I'm just a fool for your love

Bill Anderson & Jan Howard - For Loving You - # ONE - 1967
For loving you my life is so much richer
You've given so much to live for and I never really lived before before loving you
(For loving you)
[ Jan ]
And for loving you my faith is a little stronger
For a world that could give you to me couldn't be as bad as it's made out to be
There was good there I just could never see before loving you
(For loving you for needing you but most of all for loving you for needing you)
[ Jan ]
And for needing you I feel a whole lot stronger
For there's a strength that comes from knowing you need to give up yourself
And darling I gave so much of myself loving you (for losing you)
[ Bill ]
And now I'm losing you and I'm a sadder lonelier man
Than I ever thought any man could be
But even in my loneliness even as I walk the hunting trail of memory
Even for all the pain that I'm feeling right now
Never once will I ever regret having had the chance of loving you (loving you)

You may think that I'm talking foolish
You've heard that I'm wild and I'm free
You may wonder how I can promise you now
This love that I feel for you always will be
But you're not just time that I'm killin'
I'm no longer one of those guys
As sure as I live, this love that I give
Is gonna be yours until the day that I die
Oh, baby, I'm gonna love you forever
Forever and ever, amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
I'll be happy to tell you again
I'm gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen
They say time take its toll on a body
Makes a young girl's brown hair turn gray
Well, honey, I don't care, I ain't in love with your hair
And if it all fell out, well, I'd love you anyway
They say time can play tricks on a mem'ry
Make people forget things they knew
Well, it's easy to see it's happenin' to me
I've already forgotten every woman but you
Oh, darlin', I'm gonna love you forever
Forever and ever, amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
Well, just listen to how this song ends
I'm gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen
I'm gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen

Randy Travis - Forever Together - # ONE - 1991
I took you for granted
So many years
I gave you no hope
Broken promises and tears
But when I was down
It was you who was there
To pick up the pieces and show me you care
Forever together
Til' death do we part
Forsaking all others
I'll give you my heart
Through good times and bad times
Wherever we are
Forever together
In each other's arms
You seem to know
What we had all along
And you had the love
And the faith to go on
It took some time but now I realize
That I see it all when I look in your eyes
Forever together
Til' death do we part
Forsaking all others
I give you my heart
Through good times and bad times
Wherever we are
Forever together
In each other's arms
Forever together
In each other's arms

Alabama - Forever's As Far As I'll Go - # ONE - 1991
I'll admit I could feel it
The first time that we touched
And the look in your eyes
Said you felt as much
But I'm not a man
Who falls too easily
It's best that you know
Where you stand with me
I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all the love it can hold
That's all I can do
I've thought about
How long I'll love you
And it's only fair that you know
Forever's as far as I'll go
When there's age around my eyes
And gray in your hair
And it only takes a touch
To recall the love we've shared
I won't take for granted
You'll know my love is true
'Cause each night in your arms
I will whisper to you
I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all the love it can hold
That's all I can do
'Cause I've thought about
How long I'll love you
And it's only fair that you know
Forever's as far as I'll go
Forever's as far
As I'll go

Willie Nelson - Forgiving You Was Easy - # ONE - 1985
Forgiving you was easy but forgetting seems to take the longest time
I just keep thinking and your memory is forever on my mind
You know I'll always love you and I can't forget the days when you were mine
Forgiving you is easy but forgetting seems to take the longest time
The bitter fruit of anger growing from the seeds of jealousy
Oh what a heartache but I forgive the things you said to me
Cause I believe forgiving is the only way that I'll find peace of mind
And forgiving you is easy but forgetting seems to take the longest time
The years have passed so quickly as once again fate steals a young man's dreams
Of all the golden years and growing old together you and me
You asked me to forgive you you said there was another on your mind
Forgiving you is easy but forgetting seems to take the longest time
Forgiving you is easy but forgetting seems to take the longest time

So we live out in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you
And we'll end up hand in hand
Somewhere down on the sand
Just me and you
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
We drive until the city lights
Dissolve into a country sky
Just me and you
Lay underneath the harvest moon
Do all the things that lovers do
Just me and you
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
And ever be
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
All we need is love
We're free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
So we live out in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you

Razzy Bailey - Friends - # ONE - 1981
You were always there to talk to
And I was always hanging around
You were always there to pick me up
After love let me down
I never would have made it without you
I almost made it too late to see
All the time I was leaning on you,
You were leaning on me
Friends, that's what we've been, is friends
Through thick and thin
We've been friends and our love begins
And who makes better lovers than friends
Friends should always be something special
You never know where friendship will lead
We aere sailing high on the sea of love
And forever will be
Friends, that's what we've been, is friends
Through thick and thin
We've been friends and our love begins
And who makes better lovers than friends
Friends, that's what we've been, is friends
Through thick and thin
We've been friends and our love begins
And who makes better lovers than friends

Ricky Van Shelton - From A Jack To A King - # ONE - 1989
From a jack to a king
From loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an ace and I won a queen
And walked away with your heart
From a jack to a king
With no regrets I stacked the cards last night
And lady luck played her hand just right
And made me king of your heart
For just a little while
I thought that I might lose the game
Then just in time I saw the twinkle in your eye
From a jack to a king
From loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an ace and I won a queen
You made me king of your heart
For just a little while
I thought that I might lose the game
Then just in time I saw the twinkle in your eye
From a jack to a king
From loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an ace and I won a queen
You made me king of your heart

Eddy Arnold - Full Time Job A - # ONE - 1952
I want a full time job makin' love to you
I'll do anything you want me to
But if you have no plan to use a full time man
A part time job will do
I want a life time job bein' close to you
Makin' all your dreams come true
But if your heart don't throb about a full time job
A part time job will do
You wouldn't have to pay me
A nickel or a dime
As long as you would let me
Get in a little bit of overtime
I want a full time job holdin' hands with you
I think you'd kinda like it too
Don't need a part time job, I want a full time job
But a part time job will do
You wouldn't have to pay me
A nickel or a dime
As long as you would let me
Get in a little bit of overtime

Funny face, I love you
Funny face, I need you
My whole worlds wrapped up in you
When the road I walk seems all up hill
And the colors in my rainbow turn blue
You kiss the tears away
You smile at me and say
Funny face, (funny face) I love you
Funny face, I love you
Funny face, I need you
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard
Funny face, don't leave me
Funny face, believe me
My whole world's wrapped up in you.
And when I hurt your feelings as I sometimes do
And I say those mean things that we know are not true
You forgive my childish ways
You hold me close and say
Funny face, funny face I love you
Funny face, I love you
Funny face, I need you
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard
Funny face, don't leave me
Funny face, believe me
My whole worlds wrapped up in you
Funny face, I love you
Funny face, I need you
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard
Funny face, don't leave me
Funny face, believe me
My whole world's wrapped up in you

Billy Walker - Funny How Time Slips Away - 1961
Well, hello there
My, it's been a long, long time
How'm I doin'?
Oh, I guess that I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now, but it seems now that it was yesterday
Oh, ain't it funny how time slips away?

Say, how's your mew love? I hope he's doin' fine
I heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time
Now that's the same thing that you told me, it seems like yesterday
Oh, ain't it funny how time slips away?

I gotta go now
I hope I see you around
But I don't know when, though
Never know when I'll be back in town
But remember what I tell you, in time you're gonna pay
Oh, ain't it funny how time slips away?

Hank Locklin - Geisha Girl - 1957
Have you ever heard a love song that you didn't understand
Well you've met her in a teahouse on the Island of Japan
And have you ever traveled over a many thousand miles
To see a pretty Geisha girl dressed in Oriental style
They read it in the Tea Leaves and it's written in the sand
I found love by the heartful in the foreign distant land
Tell the homefolks that I'm happy with someone that's true I know
I love a pretty Geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow
[ guitar ]
I have stood and watched the sunrise from the waters of the sea
And wondered how much beauty in this whole world can there be
My dreams are all worth dreaming and it makes my life worth while
To see my pretty Geisha girl dressed in Oriental style
They read it in the Tea Leaves...

Chris Young - Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song) - # ONE - 2009
Tuxedo waiters, black tie,
White table clothes and red wine,
We've been planning, this night,
Looking forward to it, for some time
Now honey I know you love getting dressed up,
And you know I love showing you off,
But watching your baby blue eyes, dancing in the candle light glow,
All I can think about, is getting you home,
Walking through the front door,
Seeing your black dress hit the floor,
Uh honey there sure ain't nothing, like you loving
Me all night long, and all I can think about is getting you home,
I don't need this menu, no I don't,
I already know just what I want,
Did I hear you right, did you tell me,
Go pay the waiter and lets leave,
Now honey I know by that look in your eyes,
And your hand drawing hearts on mine,
That our night out of the house, ain't gonna last too long,
When all you can think about, is getting me home,
Walking through the front door,
Seeing your black dress hit the floor,
Uh honey there sure ain't nothing like you loving me
All night long,
And all I can think about, all I can think about,
All I can think about, is getting you home.

Joe Nichols - Gimmie That Girl - # ONE - 2010
Hang up that red dress,
Let down your hair,
Cancel those reservations
There's no need to go nowhere.
As good as your looking right now,
Girl bet your thinkin' I'm crazy,
There's a side of you that I wanna see
That never ceases to amaze me.
Gimme that girl with the hair in a mess
Sleepy little smile with her head on my chest,
That's the you that I like best,
Gimme that girl.
Gimme that girl lovin' up on me,
Old t-shirt and a pair of jeans,
That's the you I wanna see,
Gimme that girl
Gimme the girl that's beautiful,
Without a trace of makeup on,
Barefoot in the kitchen,
Singing her favorite song.
Dancing around like a fool,
Starring in her own little show,
Gimme the girl that the rest of the world,
Ain't lucky enough to know.
Gimme that girl with the hair in a mess
Sleepy little smile with her head on my chest,
That's the you that I like best,
Gimme that girl.
Gimme that girl lovin' up on me,
Old t-shirt and a pair of jeans,
That's the you I wanna see,
Gimme that girl, gimme that girl.
Gimme that girl with the hair in a mess
Sleepy little smile with her head on my chest,
That's the you that I like best,
Gimme that girl.
Gimme that girl lovin' up on me,
Old t-shirt and a pair of jeans,
That's the you I wanna see,
Gimme that girl, gimme that girl.

Hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush
Ain't slowing down
I got it real bad
Want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She's giving you now
I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I got a girl crush
I got a girl crush
I don't get no sleep
I don't get no peace
Thinking about her
Under your bed sheets
The way that she's whispering
The way that she's pulling you in
Lord knows I've tried,
I can't get her off my mind
I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you

Lefty Frizzell - Give Me More More More (Of Your Kisses) - # ONE - 1952
When my gal and I go on a date
We always come in kinda late
When I say goodnight at her front door
I always beg for one kiss more
Give me more, more, more of your kisses
I want more, more, more tender kisses
And when I finally go
You can hear the rooster crow
Oh, please give me one more tender kiss
Now, I'll admit I lose some sleep by staying out so late
But when I kiss my gal goodnight, the sleep will have to wait
Give me more, more, more of your kisses
I want more, more, more tender kisses
The neighbors all raise Cain
And I know that it's a shame
But I've got to have another tender kiss
Now, all the neighbors in her block
Have offered things, you see
They'll even pay the wedding bills
To just get rid of me
Yelling more, more, more of your kisses
I cry for more, more, more tender kisses
And when I leave her door
You can hear me beg for more
Oh, please give me one more tender kiss

The band was playing, kinda, something low
All the lovers swaying, to and fro
You and me, together, dancing real slow
Tonight's the night, I want you to know
I can't hold out any longer
Remember, love can't grow
Oh, very much stronger
You better hang on to your heart, hold on tight
Or I'm gonna steal it away, tonight
I'll take you in my arms and never ever let you go
There's a new moon out, the stars are shining bright
You're here with me and it feels so right
So hang on to your heart
Or I'm gonna steal it away
You're living proof, that dreams come true
I can't believe, I'm really holding you
So close, so tight, all night through
If I could only make time stand still, forever
It'll always be
Just you and me
Here, together
You better hang on to your heart, hold on tight
Or I'm gonna steal it away, tonight
I'll take you in my arms and never ever let you go
There's a new moon out, the stars are shining bright
You're here with me and it feels so right
So hang on to your heart
Or I'm gonna steal it away
Hang on, hang on

Hang on, hang on

Hang on, hang on

Michael Johnson - Give Me Wings - # ONE - 1987
He asked her, what gifts can I bring you
To prove that my love for you is true
I want to make you mine forever
There's nothing on this earth I would not do
She said, anything I've wanted
You have given willingly
So now there's only one more thing I need
If you love me, give me wings
And don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
If you love me, give me wings
He walked over to the window
He silently stared into space
Then he said, well I just want to protect you
'Cause this world is a dangerous place
She put her arms around him
She said, I know you mean well
But there are lessons I must learn for myself
So if you love me, give me wings
And don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
And you can trust me, so give me wings
She said, up above the clouds, you can see forever
And I know you and I can learn to fly together
If you love me, give me wings
Don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
And you can trust me, so give me wings
If you really love me
Give me wings

Blake Shelton - God Gave Me You - # ONE - 2011
I've been a walking heartache
I've made a mess of me
The person that I've been lately
Ain't who I wanna be
But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you
'Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you, gave me you
There's more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
And I'll be the flattered fool
And I need you, yeah
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you
On my own I'm only
Half of what I could be
I can't do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo
'Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you, gave me you
He gave me you

Kathy Mattea - Goin' Gone - # ONE - 1988
There's a lighthouse in the harbor
Giving guidance with its light
But I had no one to return to
As I wandered through the night
From the first time that I saw you
Standing silent by the shore
I knew my search was over
And I would look for love no more
Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin'
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
There's a ship on the horizon
Makin' its way against the wind
From the place where I stand watching
I swear my ship is coming in.
Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin'
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin'
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone
Goin' once, goin' twice, goin gone

I was heading home I hadn't planned on you
I shouldn't be here now but tell me what can I do
The way you're looking in my eyes
Well I'm beginning to realize it's true,
It's you, and baby we've
Gone too far, I'm gonna wake
Gone too far, But I can't help
The way you look at me
The way I look at you:
The way you're touching me
The way I'm touching you
You're pulling all the right strings baby
You're saying all the right things baby to me, to me|
and don't you know we've
Gone too far, I'm gonna wake
Gone too far, but I can't|
Gone too far feels too good to turn back
Gone too far
But I can't help it I'm fall-alling

She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his wicked ways
She don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter,
They'll pass through this world hand in hand,
She's a good-hearted woman loving a good-timin' man.
Well, a long time forgotten
Dreams have just fell by the way
And the good life he promised
Ain't what she's living today
But she never complains of the bad times
Or bad things he's done
She just talks about the good times they've had
And all the good times to come.
She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his wicked ways
She don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter,
They'll pass through this world hand in hand,
She's a good-hearted woman loving a good-timin' man.
He likes the bright light, the nite life
And good-timin' friends
When the party's all over
She'll welcome him back home again
She don't understand him,
But she does the best that she can
This good-hearted woman
Lovin' a good-timin' man.
She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves me in spite of my wicked ways
She don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter,
They'll pass through this world hand in hand,
She's a good-hearted woman loving a good-timin' man.
She's a good-hearted woman loving a good-timin' man.

Tammy Wynette - Good Lovin' (Makes It Right) - # ONE - 1971
Good lovin' keeps a home together.
Good lovin' sure can make it right.
If you never want to be without him,
It means loving everything about him.
And that keeps your man around at night.
It takes a whole lotta woman to hold it together today.
'cause a lot of other women have a whole lotta time to play.
You gotta be a Saint on Sunday morning, a devil on Saturday night.
And when you're lovin' do it right.
Oh, she's around every corner, wrapped in fur,
And you've gotta be just a little bit better than her.
A little bit sweeter with your morning kisses,
A whole lot warmer in the night.
With a lot of good lovin' to make everything all right.
Good lovin' keeps a home together.
Good lovin' sure can make it right.
If you never want to be without him,
It means loving everything about him.
And that keeps your man around at night.
If you don't believe what I'm telling you is so,
Put your man right out on the street and watch him go,
Right to the arms of a woman, who couldn't even hold you a light,
When a lot of good lovin' woulda made everything all right.
If you don't believe what I'm telling you is so,
Put your man right out on the street and watch him go,
Right to the arms of a woman, who couldn't even hold you a light,
When a lot of good lovin' woulda made everything all right.
Yeah, a lot of good lovin' woulda made everything all right.

Steve Holy - Good Morning Beautiful - # ONE - 2002
Good morning, beautiful, how was your night?
Mine was wonderful with you by my side
And when I open my eyes to see your sweet face
It's a good morning, beautiful day
I couldn't see the light, I didn't know day from night
I had no reason to care
Well, since you've came along, I can face the dawn
'Cause I know, you'll be there
Good morning, beautiful, how was your night?
Mine was wonderful with you by my side
And when I open my eyes to see your sweet face
It's a good morning, beautiful day
I never worry if it's raining outside
'Cause in here with you, girl, the sun always shines
Good morning, beautiful, how was your night?
Mine was wonderful with you by my side
And when I open my eyes to see your sweet face
It's a good morning, beautiful day
Hmm, good morning, beautiful day
Hmm, it's a beautiful day
(Good morning beautiful, good morning beautiful)
Good morning, what a beautiful day
(Good morning beautiful, good morning beautiful)

Clint Black - A Good Run of Bad Luck - # ONE - 1994
A high roller even when the chips are down
To win her over, I'd seen the tables turn around
She's ten the hard way, I can feel it in my bones
She'll be makin' my day and not another night alone
'Til it's time for a windfall and not a single minute too soon
I've been too long overdue, now I'm gonna shoot the moon

I'd bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I'm gonna find love comin' on the bottom line

I've been to the table, and I've lost it all before
I'm willin' and able, always comin' back for more
Squeezin' out a thin dime 'til there's no one hanging on my arm
I've gambled on a third time, a fool will tell you it's a charm
If I'm bettin' on a loser, I'm gonna have a devil to pay
But it's the only game I know to play, it doesn't matter anyway

I'd bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I'm gonna find love comin' on the bottom line

I'd bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I'm gonna find love comin' on the bottom line

Kenny ChesneyGood Stuff The - # ONE - 20022002 ACM Single of the Year
Well, me and my lady had our first big fight
So I drove around till I saw the neon light
The corner bar, it just seemed right so I pulled up
Not a soul around but the old bar keep
Down at the end lookin' half asleep
But he walked up and said, what'll it be?
I said the good stuff
He didn't reach around for the whiskey
He didn't pour me a beer
His blue eyes kinda went misty
He said you can't find that here
'Cause its the first long kiss on a second date
Momma's all worried when you get home late
And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate
'Cause you're hands are shakin' so much
And its the way that she looks with her eyes and her hair
Eatin' burnt suppers the whole first year
And askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up
Yeah man, that's the good stuff
He grabbed a carton of milk and he poured a glass
And I smiled and said I'll have some of that
We sat there and talked as an hour passed like old friends
I saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare
It was a pretty girl with bu-font hair
He said, that's my Bonnie, taken 'bout a year after we wed
He said, I spent five years in the bar when the cancer took her from me
But I've been sober three years now
'Cause the one thing's stronger than the whiskey
Was the sight of her holdin' my baby girl
The way she adored that string of pearls
I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl
Married his high school love
And its a new t-shirt sayin' I'm a grandpa
Bein' right there as our time got small
And holdin' her hand when good the Lord called her up
Yeah man that's the good stuff
He said, when you get home she'll start to cry
When she says, I'm sorry, say so am I
Look into those eyes so deep in love and drink it up
'Cause that's the good stuff
That's the good stuff

Dan Seals - Good Times - # ONE - 1990
C'mon let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
The evening sun is sinking low
The clock on the wall says it's time to go
I've got my plans I don't know about you
I tell you exactly what I'm gonna do
Get in the groove and let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
It might be one o'clock it might be three
Time don't mean that much to me
Ain't felt this good since I don't know when
I might not feel this good again
So c'mon let the good time roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
All night, all night
All night, all night long
Somebody said it might take all night long
All night, all night whoa
C'mon let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long

John Conlee - Got My Heart Set On You - # ONE - 1986
Ever since the day I met you
I feel like I'm walkin' on air
and lately I'm convinced
it's no coincidence
I run into you everywhere
And though I've heard your love is taken
I gotta believe what's in your eyes
Would I be outta line,
if I suggested a time
And we get together one of these nights.
Got my heart set on you
You're everything I've ever wanted.
Got my heart set on you
It can't be anything but love
Baby I'm bettin' on it
I don't wanna give you the wrond impression
I'm not the kind who rushes in
But baby every time I see you,
Before I even leave you
I can hardly wait to see you again
I got my heart set on you
You're everything I've ever wanted
Got my heart set on you
it can't be anything but love
Baby I'm bettin' on it
I don't mean to be comin' on strong
Or taking anything for granted
But love is a thing that just comes along
You don't understand
How it got outta hand
But you're in it right from the start
I got my heart set on you
You're everything I've ever wanted
Got my heart set on you
It can't be anything but love
Baby I'm bettin' on it...

Got The All Overs For You (1972)
Love vibrations I can feel them when I hold you
I just tremble and my passion rises high
For the flavor of your sweet lips keeps me hungry
And it's a hunger that only you can satisfy
I got the all overs for you all over me
And it's a feeling made for lovers only
It's a blessing heaven sent and meant to be
Got the all overs for you all over me
Got the all overs for you all over me
And it's a feeling made for lovers only
It's a blessing heaven sent and meant to be
Got the all overs for you all over me, all over me

Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls Of Fire - # ONE - 1958
You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will, oh what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire
I learned to love all of Hollywood money
You came along and you moved me honey
I changed my mind, looking fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire
You kissed me baby, woo, it feels good
Hold me baby, learn to let me love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I'm a nervous world that your mine mine mine mine
I cut my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm really nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire
Well kiss me baby, woo-oooooo, it feels good
Hold me baby
I want to love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I got this world that you're mine mine mine mine
I cut my nails and I twiddle my thumbs

Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

Exile - Hang On To Your Heart - # ONE - 1985
The band was playing, kinda, something low
All the lovers swaying, to and fro
You and me, together, dancing real slow
Tonight's the night, I want you to know
I can't hold out any longer
Remember, love can't grow
Oh, very much stronger
You better hang on to your heart, hold on tight
Or I'm gonna steal it away, tonight
I'll take you in my arms and never ever let you go
There's a new moon out, the stars are shining bright
You're here with me and it feels so right
So hang on to your heart
Or I'm gonna steal it away
You're living proof, that dreams come true
I can't believe, I'm really holding you
So close, so tight, all night through
If I could only make time stand still, forever
It'll always be
Just you and me
Here, together
You better hang on to your heart, hold on tight
Or I'm gonna steal it away, tonight
I'll take you in my arms and never ever let you go
There's a new moon out, the stars are shining bright
You're here with me and it feels so right
So hang on to your heart
Or I'm gonna steal it away
Hang on, hang on
Hang on to your heart
Hang on, hang on
Hang on to your heart
Hang on, hang on
Hang on to your heart
Hang on, hang on
Hang on to your heart

Shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world
It's a skippidity do da day
I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A.
Good morning morning
Hello sunshine
Wake up sleepy head
Why'd we move that bojangle clock so far away from the bed
Just one more minute
That's why we moved it
One more hug would do
Do you love waking up next to me
As much as I love waking up next to you
You make the coffee
I'll make the bed
I'll fix your lunch
And you fix mine
Now tell me the truth
Do these old shoes look funny
Honey it's almost nine
Now you be careful
Gotta go, I love you
Have a beautiful day,
And kiss the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A.
Skippidity do da
Thank you oh Lord for making him for me
And thank you for letting life turn out the way
That I always thought it could be
There once was a time when I could not imagine
How it would feel to say
I'm happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A
Now shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world
It's a skippidity do da day
I'm the happiest girl, in the whole U.S.A.
Shine on me sunshine
Walk with me world
It's a skippidity do da day

Conway Twitty - Happy Birthday Darlin' - # ONE - 1979
[Verse 1: Conway Twitty, spoken]

Hello, darlin', happy birthday
I've decided not to give you a present this year
In fact I think it's about time
I took some things away
I'd like to take away the suspicion
That I know clouds your world at times
By giving you some faith to hold onto honey
Whenever your hand is not in mine
[Chorus: Conway, sung]
Happy birthday darlin'
I've no presents, no fancy cake
But I hope I'll make you happy
With everything I take
[Verse 3: Conway, spoken]
I'd like to take away some of your lonely moments
By spending more of mine with you
And I'd like to take away some of those so-so kisses
And replace them with ones that really say I love you
And I wanna take away the doubt you sometimes have about my love
By showing more...much more that I've shown lately
And then if someone should ask you what I've got you for your birthday
Well you can say, Why he didn't give me anything but he sure took a lotta things away

Lulu Belle & Scotty - Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? - ZZZ
Have I told you lately that I love you?
Could I tell you once again, somehow.?
Have I told you with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I'm no good without you, anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately how I miss you
When the stars are shining in the sky?
Have I told you why the nights are long when you're not with me?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately when I'm sleeping
Every dream I dream is you, somehow?
Have I told you who I'd like to share my love forever?
Well, darling, I'm telling you now.

Tammy Wynette - He Loves Me All The Way - # ONE - 1970
Sometimes when he comes home I'm cookin' breakfast
I haven't slept a wink all night long
I've been layin' in bed thinkin' like a woman
Wonderin' if my man's been doin' me wrong
To think he might be out with another woman
Makes my temper rise with jealousy
But all these years I've never caught him cheatin'
I guess he needs some time away from me
But when he lo-oves me, he really lo-oves me
There's nothin' left for me to say-ay
Oh when he lo-oves me, he really lo-oves me
He loved me all the way-ay
I'm not ever gonna worry about tomorrow
As long as he makes everything alright today-ay
I'd rather wonder a little and have his lovin'
'Cause when he loves me he loves me a-all the way
When he lo-oves me, he really lo-oves me
There's nothin' left for me to say-ay
Oh when he lo-oves me, he really lo-oves me
He loved me all the way-ay
I'm not ever gonna worry about tomorrow
As long as he makes everything alright today-ay
I'd rather wonder a little and have his lovin'
'Cause when he loves me he loves me a-all the way
'Cause when he loves me he loves me a-all the way

Mel Tillis - Heart Healer - # ONE - 1977
A victim to the devils vow
And most of my dreams got lost in the bargain
I could use a little comfort now
When I get love life's inspiration
It just knocks me flat on my face
You came along to pick me up
And I'm looking for more than a taste
I need a sweetheart healer like you
It's been a long time over due
I looked around and around and around and around
For a sweetheart healer like you
Now my friends and close relations
Say I ought to take it slow
But I can't subdue what I'm feeling for you
And it's time to let it show
There's no need for moderation
Now I think it's plain to see
I got the desire to unlock the chains
And I'm handing you the key

And when the day is through and I hurry home to you

Rascal Flatts - Here - # ONE - 2009
There's a place I've been lookin' for
That took me in and out of buildings
Behind windows, walls and doors
And I thought I found it
Couple times, even settled down
And I'd hang around just long enough
To find my way back out
I know now the place that I was trying to reach
Was you, right here in front of me
And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
It's amazing what I let my heart go through
To get me where it got me
In this moment here with you
And it passed me by
God knows how many times
I was so caught up in holding
What I never thought I'd find
I know now, there's a million roads
I had to take
To get me in your arms that way
And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
In a love I never thought I'd get to get to here
And if that's the road
God made me take to be with you
And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for all the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
Oh, baby ohh
Oh, got me here

When I left here this morning
I was bound and determined
I was never gonna come back
Never, never, I was running
I was running from you darling
I was running from my job
I was running from the kid in me
He never knows when to stop
Got as far as the edge of town
Then I turned my car around
And headed back to you
[Husband says, “Wife, what do you think?” Wife says, “It's very interesting. Before we talk about your day let's talk about mine.”] When I left here this morning
I was bound and determined
I was never gonna come back
Never, never, I was running
I was running from you darling
I was running from my job
I was running from some wrinkles
No cream will stop
Got as far as the edge of town
Then I turned my car around
And headed back to you
(Chorus:) Come here and hold me, tighter
Tell me tomorrow will be brighter
Kiss me, kiss me a little harder
Don't kiss like we're married
Kiss me like we're lovers
We looked at each other
And we started to grin
This morning it was over
This evening we'll start it all over again
Come her and hold me, hold me tighter
Won't you tell me tomorrow'll be brighter
Won't you kiss me, kiss me, kiss me a little harder
Honey don't kiss me like we're married
Kiss me like we're lovers and hold me
Hold me, hold me

Girl, I been thinkin' 'bout us
And you know I ain't good at this stuff
These feelings pilin' up won't give me no rest
This might come out a little crazy
A little sideways, yeah maybe
I don't know how long it'll take me
But I'll do my best
You'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee
Yeah, that came out a little country
But every word was right on the money
And I got you smilin' honey right back at me
Now hold on 'cause I ain't done
There's more where that came from
Well you know I'm just havin' fun, but seriously
If you'll be my Louisiana
I'll be your Mississippi
You'll be my Little Loretta
I'll be your Conway Twitty
You'll be my sugar, baby
I'll be your sweet iced tea
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee
Your kiss just said it all
I'm glad we had this talk
Nothing left to do
But fall in each others arms
I coulda said I love you
Coulda wrote you a line or two
Baby, all I know to do
Speak right from the heart
If you'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee
You'll be my Louisiana
I'll be your Mississippi
You'll be my Little Loretta
I'll be your Conway Twitty
You'll be my sugar baby
I'll be your sweet iced tea
You'll be my honeysuckle
And I'll be your honey bee
I'll be your honey bee

Charley Pride - Hope You're Feelin' Me (Like I'm Feelin' You) - # ONE - 1975
No one could hold me, no one could control me
But now my future is up to you
Your lovin' can shape me, make me or break me
Oh, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you
This feeling is crazy and only you can save me
From this love thing that I've got for you
Your love is a potion, Lord, and I need a notion
Oh, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you
All these changes got me goin' in circle
First I turn away, then turn right back to you
Well, I need your lovin' to keep me from sinkin'
Oh, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you
Wanna win when I gamble, no need to ramble
I doubled my lovin' when I gave it to you
I gotta do it with you, I can't do it without you
Oh, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you
All these changes got me goin' in circle
First I turn away, then turn right back to you
Well, I need your lovin' to keep me from sinkin'
Oh, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you
Yes, I hope you're feelin' me like I'm feelin' you

Houston
Houston means that I'm a one day closer to you
Oh, honey, Houston
Houston means the last day of the tour and we're through
Well honey, you and God in heaven above
Know I love what I do for a livin', I do
Ah, but Houston
Houston means that I'm one day closer to you
Yeah, singin' at the world's biggest rodeo show
Was a great time for me and the guys
Ah, but when I'm a way from you, honey
Time always never flies
And sleepin' all alone in that holiday hotel
Sure makes a cowboy blue
But here I am in Houston
An' I'm one day closer to you
Houston
Houston means that I'm a one day closer to you
Aw honey, Houston
Houston means the last day of tour and we're through
Well honey, you and God in heaven above
Know I love what I do for a livin', I do
Ah, but Houston
Houston means that I'm one day closer to you
Yeah Houston
Houston means that I'm a one day closer to you
Aw honey, Houston
Houston means the last day of the tour and we're through
Well honey, you and God in heaven above
Know I love what I do for a livin', I do
Ah, but Houston
Houston means that I'm one day closer to you
Yeah honey, Houston

Deana Carter - How Do I Get There - # ONE - 1997
We've always been the best of friends
No secrets and no demands
But suddenly from somewhere out of the blue
I see a different light around you
One thing I haven't told you, I just want to hold you
And never let you go, but I need to know
How do I get there from here
How do I make you see
How do I tell you what my heart's been tellin' me
Lost in your lovin' arms that's where I want to be
You know I love you
How do I get there
You probably think I've lost my mind
Takin' this chance and crossin' that line
I promise to be truer than true
Dreamin' every night with these arms around you
I can't wait any longer it's only getting stronger
So help me find a way
How do I get there from here
How do I make you see
How do I tell you what my heart's been tellin' me
Lost in your lovin' arms that's where I want to be
You know I love you
How do I get there
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line
But I'll climb any mountain that you want me to climb
The perfect combination is your heart and mine
Baby, give me a sign
How do I get there from here
How do I make you see
How do I tell you what my heart's been tellin' me
Lost in your lovin' arms that's where I want to be
You know I love you
How do I get there
How do I get there from here
How do I make you see
How do I tell you what my heart's been tellin' me
Lost in your lovin' arms that's where I want to be
You know I love you
How do I get there

Ronnie Milsap - How Do I Turn You On - # ONE - 1987
I'd like to be a fly on your wall,
When you think you all alone,
Learn your secrets once and for all,
Never tell no one.
I can't read your mind,
It's secret telling time.
Tell me, how do I turn you on,
Tell me, how do I turn you on,
Oh, oh, oh maybe there's a game we could play,
Is there something that you want,
But you're too shy to say.
How do I turn you on,
Turn you on to me.
Oh, I could take you a way,
A million miles from here,
When I'm getting close baby say,
With a whisper in my ear.
How to make you mine,
It's secret telling time.
Tell me, how do I turn you on,
Tell me, how do I turn you on,
Maybe there's a game we could play,
Is there something that you want,
But you're too shy to say,
How do I turn you on,
Turn you on to me.
Just between you and me,
I'm a little nervous too,
But just beyond our wildest dreams,
It's waiting for me, and it's waiting for you.
Oh, oh, oh, maybe there's a game we can play,
Is there something that you want, but you're too shy to say,
How do I turn you on,
Turn you on to me.

Diamond Rio - How Your Love Makes Me Feel - # ONE - 1997
I'm no poet and I know it
I don't use five dollar words
This might not sound like much compared to all the pretty things you've heard
But here's how I'd explain it
Since you brought it up
It won't sound like anybody else's version of love
It's like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream
And see how far we can drive before it melts kind of feelin'
There's a cow in the road
And you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death
And you laugh until you cry
That's how your love makes me feel inside
It might not be suitable for greeting cards and such
But it's a true and honest feeling
And if you feel it half as much
We could go through life together without a worry or a care
Knowin' deep down in our hearts
We've got something special there
It's like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream
And see how far we can drive before it melts kind of feelin'
There's a cow in the road
And you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death
And you laugh until you cry
That's how your love makes me feel inside
That's how your love makes me feel
I have always heard
You can't put love into words
It's like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream
And see how far we can drive before it melts kind of feelin'
There's a cow in the road
And you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death
And you laugh until you cry
That's how your love makes me feel inside
That's how your love makes me feel inside
That's how your love makes me feel inside
That's how I feel
That's how your love makes me feel

George Jones - I Always Get Lucky With You - # ONE - 1983
I've had good luck, and bad luck
And no luck, it's true
But I always get lucky with you
I've been turned on, and turned down
When the bars close at two
But I always get lucky with you
I keep two strikes against me
Most all of the time
And when it's down to just a phone call
I'm minus a dime
There's been good days, and bad days
But when the day is through
I always get lucky with you
I keep two strikes against me
Most all of the time
And when it's down to just a phone call
I'm minus a dime
There's been good days, and bad days
But when the day is through
I always get lucky with you
I always get lucky with you

Conway Twitty - I Am The Dreamer (You Are The Dream) - # ONE - 1981
A kiss in the dark, a touch of your hand
My arms are around you, my dream begins
The only thing that's different than any other night
Here we are together, my dream by my side.
I am the dreamer, you are the dream
You are the answer to my fantasy
All that I have dreamed of now is complete
I am the dreamer, you are the dream.
I know now that I've been dreamin'
I finally saw the light
With my arms wide open
I found the love that's right.
You don't have to wake me
for me to know it's real
The love that I have dreamed of
I can touch and feel.
I am the dreamer, you are the dream
You are the answer to my fantasy
All that I have dreamed of, now is complete
I am the dreamer, you are the dream.
I am the dreamer, you are the dream
You are the answer to my fantasy
All that I have dreamed of, now is complete
I am the dreamer, you are the dream...

Diamond Rio - I Believe - # ONE - 2003
Every now and then,
Soft as breath upon my skin,
I feel you come back again.
And it's like you haven't been,
Gone a moment from my side.
Like the tears were never cried,
Like the hands of time are holding you and me.
And with all my heart I'm sure,
We're closer than we ever were.
I don't have to hear or see,
I've got all the proof I need.
There are more than angels watching over me.
I believe, oh I believe.
Now when you die your life goes on,
It doesn't end here when you're gone.
Every soul is filled with light,
It never ends and if I'm right.
Our love can even reach across eternity,
I believe, oh I believe.
Forever, you're a part of me.
Forever, in the heart of me.
I will hold you even longer if I can.
Oh the people who don't see the most,
See that I believe in ghosts.
And if that makes me crazy, then I am
'Cause I believe
Oh, I believe
There are more than angels watching over me.
I believe, oh I believe.
Every now and then,
Soft as breath upon my skin,
I feel you come back again.
And I believe.

This is all I need to be
Bound to use the same as free
The key is understanding
I'll believe in you
You saw me and let me know
To me, reveal my soul
I gave up all everything
I was taught was real
Life was just a way to die
'Til you taught me to feel
Now I believe in me
You gave me a reason to
Took me in and cared for me
You believed in me
And I believe in you

Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson - I Can Get Off On You - # ONE - 1978
Take back the weed, take back the cocaine baby
Take back the pills, take back the whiskey too
I don't need them now, your love was all I was after
I'll make it now, I can get off on you.
I can get by on little
Or nothing at all I know
I can get high just thinkin'
About you and so.
Well, take back the weed, take back the cocaine baby
Take back the pills, take back the whiskey too
I don't need them now, your love was all I was after
I'll make it now, I can get off on you.
Who would have thought
This was somethin' that I'd ever do
I'm working it out
Mellowing out on you.
Take back the weed, take back the cocaine baby
Take back the pills, take back the whiskey too
I don't need them now, your love was all I was after
I'll make it now, I can get off on you.
Take back the weed, take back the cocaine baby
Take back the pills, take back the whiskey too
I don't need them now, your love was all I was after

John Michael Montgomery - I Can Love You Like That - # ONE - 1995
They read you Cinderella
You hoped it would come true
That one day your Prince Charming
Would come rescue you
You like romantic movies
You will never forget
The way you felt when Romeo kissed Juliet
All this time that you've been waiting
You don't have to wait no more
I can love you like that
I would make you my world
Move Heaven and Earth if you were my girl
I will give you my heart
Be all that you need
Show you you're everything that's precious to me
If you give me a chance
I can love you like that
I never make a promise I don't intend to keep
So when I say forever, forever's what I mean
I'm no Casanova but I swear this much is true
I'll be holdin' nothing back when it comes to you
You dream of love that`s everlasting
Well baby open up your eyes
I can love you like that
I would make you my world
Move Heaven and Earth if you were my girl
I will give you my heart
Be all that you need
Show you you're everything that's precious to me
If you give me a chance
I can love you like that
You want tenderness-I got tenderness
And I see through to the heart of you
If you want a man who understands
You don't have to look very far

Conway Twitty - I Can't Believe She Gives It All To Me - # ONE - 1977
I pinch myself when I wake up each morning
'Cause I'm constantly amazed when I see
Exactly everything I've always wanted
But I can't believe she gives it all to me
Lips that warm my face with morning kisses
Arms that reach to hold me tenderly
And love that always satisfies completely
But I can't believe she gives it all to me
She gives me more than any one man deserves
I who have everything am nothing without her
Somehow she knows I need her desperately
I can't believe she gives it all to me

Tom T Hall - I Care - # ONE - 1975
When the TV won't work and your toys fall apart
And you have a sad feeling deep in your heart
You want to go out but it's rainin' out there I want you to know I care
I care I do there's no one like you
When they take you some place and you sit in a chair I want you to know I care
When you tell a big lie and your parents're mean
When being grownup is a faraway dream
When you're fillin' your teeth and cuttin' your hair I want you to know I care
I care I do there's no one like you
I mention your name when I'm sayin' my prayers I want you to know I care
When you have a bad cough and you can't go out
When you sit for a week with that thing in your mouth
When you sleep in the dark and there's something out there I want you to know I care
I care I do there's no one like you and sometimes I act like a grouchy old bear
I want you to know I care I love you too much

Girl, you know it wouldn't take much
Just one little bitty touch from you
You could make me feel so fine
If you're so inclined to
If you feel like dancing
Let it show
Tell me anything
But please don't say no
I could get used to you
Oh, darling, you're so fine
I could grow accustomed to
Your body layin' right next to mine
If you would walk on my way
Girl, I'd give my heart away to you
Dancing all through the night
Holding each other tight
Darling that's what I'd like to do with you babe
I could get used to you
Oh, darling, you're so fine
I could grow accustomed to
Your body layin' right next to mine
I could get used to you
Oh, darling, you're so fine

Everywhere I look the world keeps turnin' 'round
Though I said, I never would be satisfied
Oh baby, I lied, I couldn't leave you if I tried
Sometimes I get lost out on this sad old town
And every bridge I cross just turns me upside down
And every stumbling step I take back to your side
It hurts my pride I couldn't leave you if I tried
Well, I could not walk away no matter what I say
I won't be leaving believe it or don't
You're all that I want
Tears may fall but after all is said and done
Darlin' please believe me you're the only one
And I'll admit mistakes I've made me realize
Baby I lied, I couldn't leave you if I tried
I won't be leaving you no matter what I do
I'm gonna see it through 'til the end
And do it again
Years may come and friends may go but that's okay

Our love is unconditional, we knew it from the start
I see it in your eyes, you can feel it from my heart
From here on after let's stay the way we are right now
And share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow
I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine
You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete
And as long as there's a breath in me
I'll make yours just as sweet
As we look into the future, it's as far as we can see
So let's make each tomorrow be the best that it can be
I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true
In all the world you'll never find, a love as true as mine
And if along the way we find a day it starts to storm
You've got the promise of my love to keep you warm
In all the world you'll never find, a love as true as mine
A love as true as mine

Louvin Brothers - I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby - # ONE - 1956
Last night, my dear, the rain was falling
I went to bed so sad and blue
Then, I had a dream of you
I dreamed I was strolling in the evening
Underneath the harvest moon
I was thinking about you
And then we met me in the moonlight
The stars were shining in your eyes
But another was there too
I don't believe you've met my baby
You looked at him, you looked at me
I wondered who you were talking to
I shook the hand of your stranger
But I was shaking more inside
I was still wondering who
Your arm was resting on his shoulder
You smiled at him, he smiled at you
His eyes were filled with victory
He said, My sister wants to marry
Then my heart was filled with ease
I knew that you would marry me

Alan Jackson - I Don't Even Know Your Name - ZZZ
Well I was sitting at a roadhouse down on Highway 41
You were wiping off some ketchup on a table that was done
I knew you didn't see me I was in a corner booth
Of course you weren't my waitress mine was missing her front tooth

So I flagged you down for coffee but I couldn't say a thing
But I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name.
I'm in love with you baby
I don't even know your name

I've never been too good at all those sexual games
So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way
I'm in love with you baby and
I don't even know your name

So I ordered straight tequila a little courage in a shot
And I asked you for a date and then I asked to tie the knot
I got a little wasted
Yeah I went a little far

But I finally got to hug you when you helped me to my car
The last thing I remember I heard myself say
I'm in love with you baby and
I don't even know your name

I'm in love with you baby
I don't even know your name
I've never been too good at all those sexual games
So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way

I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name
The next thing I remember I was hearing wedding bells
Standing by a women in a long white lacy veil
I raised the veil she smiled at me without her left front tooth

And I said where the Hell am I and just who the Hell are you?
She said I was your waitress
And our last name's now the same
'Cause I'm married to you baby and
I don't even know your name
Yeah I'm married to a waitress
I don't even know her name
I've never been too good at all those sexual games
I never thought my love life would quite turn out this way
Hey I'm married to a waitress and
I don't even know her name
Get me out of here!

Come, let me hold you for a while
All you have to do is smile
And I'm yours again
I may not like some things you do
But they're all a part of you
And you're my best friend
I don't mind the cold when I have a fire to warm me
I don't mind the rain 'cause it makes the flowers grow
I can take the bad times when you wrap your love around me
I don't mind the thorns when you're the rose
Stay, we can work the whole thing out
That's what love's about
And I understand
You didn't mean the things you said
They're so easy to forget
When you take my hand
I don't mind the cold when I have a fire to warm me
I don't mind the rain 'cause it makes the flowers grow
I can take the bad times when you wrap your love around me
I don't mind the thorns when you're the rose
If it was anybody else, I would be gone
But you're so beautiful to me, oh that I keep on holding on
I don't mind the thorns when you're the rose

I don't want to be a memory
Just a shadow in your mind
Wanna be the one you always need
Not the one you left behind
I don't want to be a notch in your handle
Another love casualty
So lay back down and let's talk it over
'Cause I don't want to be a memory
Don't you remember how it used to be
When we were so in love
We spent the nights in a two-room flat
Drinking wine from a coffee cup
Making love was so very easy
We couldn't get enough
I never dreamed there would come a time
When you'd think about giving me up
I don't want to be a memory
Just a shadow in your mind
I wanna be the one you always need
Not the one you left behind
I don't want to be a notch in your handle
Another love casualty
So lay back down and let's talk it over
'Cause I don't want to be a memory
I know you've had other lovers
But that's all history
I got to know that you'll let me be the last one
To share your company
I don't want to be a memory
Just a shadow in your mind
I wanna be the one you always need
Not the one you left behind
I don't want to be a notch in your handle
Another love casualty
So lay back down and let's talk it over
'Cause I don't want to be
I don't want to be a memory

I wanna be the one you always need
Not the one you left behind

Mark Chesnutt - I Don't Want To Miss A Thing - # ONE - 1999
I could stay awake just to hear you breathin'
Watch you smile while you are sleepin'
While you're far away and dreamin'
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Where every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure
I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you and I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you
and I don't want to miss a thing
Lyin' close to you feeling your heart beatin'
And I'm wonderin' what you're dreamin'
Wonderin' if it's me you're seein'
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
I just wanna stay with you in this moment forever
I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I miss you and I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you and I don't want to miss a thing
I don't wanna miss one smile, I don't wanna miss one kiss
I just wanna be with you, right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close, feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment for all the rest of time
I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you and I don't want to miss a thing
I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing
I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I miss you, and I on't wanna miss a thing

Forester Sisters - I Fell In Love Again Last Night - # ONE - 1985
I fell in love again last night
You keep doing everything just right
You've got me wrapped around your fingers
And every morning our love still lingers
I fell in love again last night
When you kissed me the way you've always done
Like the first time you were with me and my heart just came undone
Lying here this morning boy I know you're still the one
I fell in love again last night
You keep doing everything just right
You're the reason my heart keeps beating
And every morning it keeps repeating
I fell in love again last night
We were talking about some future plans
And how far we've come together since the night it all began
Then you reached out to touch me and guess what happened then
I fell in love again last night
You keep doing everything just right
You're the reason my heart keeps beating
And every morning it keeps repeating
I fell in love again last night
In love again last night
I fell in love again last night

Carl & Pearl Butler - I Hope We Walk The Last Mile Together - ZZZ
(Chorus)
I hope we walk the last mile together
Hand in hand, we can see the promised land
We’ve been through a lot of bad times but our love is forever
And I hope we walk the last mile together
We made our house a home for our little ones
We’ve known happiness, yes we’ve known sorrow too
Oh we’ve walked in the sunshine and we’ve walked stormy weather
And I hope we walk the last mile together

Chorus:
I remember when you first said I love you
I didn’t know that our love could be so strong
But today I find its still mine, for its come and go whatever
And I hope we walk the last mile together

Anne Murray - I Just Fall In Love Again - # ONE - 1979
Dreamin', I must be dreamin'
Or am I really lying here with you?
Baby, you take me in your arms
And though I'm wide awake, I know my dream is comin' true
And oh I just fall in love again
Just one touch and then it happens every time
There I go by, just fall in love again and when I do
I can't help myself, I fall in love with you
Magic, it must be magic
The way I hold you when the night just seems to fly
Easy for you to take me to a star
Heaven is that moment when I look into your eyes.
And oh I just fall in love again
Just one touch and then it happens every time
There I go by, just fall in love again and when I do
I can't help myself, I fall in love with you
Can't help myself, I fall in love with you

I Just Want to Love You
Eddie Rabbitt
I was just passing through
Wasn't staying long till I met you
And when you said ?hello? my heart just knew
What else could I do
Stand right here and fall in love with you
Girl you're almost too good to be true
Now we're swayin' to the music
And your body's soft and warm
Flowin' with the feelin'
Here in my arms
I just want to love you
I just want to hold you tight
Lay right here with you all night
I just want to love you
What good is life if you
Don't take a chance on love a time or two
And I want to take my chance with you
Cause it could be so sweet
As long as you're close to me
There's nothing in this world we couldn't be
Now we're swayin' to the music
And your body's soft and warm
Flowin' with the feelin'
Here in my arms
I just want to love you
I just want to hold you tight
Lay right here with you all night
I just want to love you

Razzy Bailey - I Keep Coming Back - # ONE - 1981
Might as well admit it
Your love has got the best of me
As long as I'm in it
You might as well take the rest of me
You can take one night
And turn it into a lifetime
But when the morning comes
I'll be right back where I started from
I keep coming back
Even though I'm asking for a lonely
My heart won't listen
I keep coming back even though
I know it's more than I can take
I'm standing at your door
'Cause baby, I keep coming back for more
Baby, I'm not lying
There ain't a thing in this world
I would not do for you
Maybe if I keep trying, darling
Then I can just show you
How much I can do for you crave for you
You can take one night
And turn it into a lifetime
But when the morning comes
I'll be right back where I started from

Tim McGraw - I Like It I Love It - # ONE - ZZZ
Spent forty-eight dollars last night at the county fair
I threw out my shoulder but I won her that teddy bear
She's got me saying sugar-pie, honey, darlin', and dear
I ain't seen the Braves play a game all year
I'm gonna get fired, if I don't get some sleep
My long lost buddies say I'm gettin' in to deep
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
I try so hard, I can't rise above it
Don't know what it is 'bout that little gal's lovin'
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
My Mama and Daddy tried to teach me courtesy
But it never sank in 'til that girl got a hold of me
Now I'm holding umbrellas and openin' up doors
I'm taking out the trash and I'm sweepin' my floors
Crossin' my fingers, and countin' every kiss
Prayin' that it keeps goin' on like this
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
I try so hard, I can't rise above it
Don't know what it is 'bout that little gal's lovin'
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
Got to wash my truck and dress up
To pick her up to watch TV
And she sits down on the sofa
She'll move a little closer
She can't get enough of me
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
I try so hard, I can't rise above it
Don't know what it is 'bout that little gal's lovin'
But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

Tom T Hall - I Love - # ONE - 1974
I love little baby ducks, old pickup trucks
Slow-movin' trains and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams
Sunday school in May and hay
And I love you, too
I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends
Birds of the world and squirrels
I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups
Bourbon in a glass and grass
And I love you, too
I love honest, open smiles, kisses from a child
Tomatoes on the vine and onions
I love winners when they cry, losers when they cry
Music when it's good and life
And I love you, too.

John Michael MontgomeryI Love The Way You Love Me - # ONE - 19931993 ACM Song of the Year
I like the feel of your name on my lips
And I like the sound of your sweet gentle kiss
The way that your fingers run through my hair
And how your scent lingers even when your not there
And I like the way your eyes dance when you laugh
And how you enjoy your two hour bath
And how you convinced me to dance in the rain
With everyone watching like we were insane
But I love the way you love me
Strong and wild
Slow and easy
Heart and soul
So completely
I love the way you love me
I like to imitate old Jerry Lee
And watch you roll your eyes when I'm slightly off key
And I like the innocent way that you cry
At sappy old movies you've seen hundreds of times
But I love the way you love me
Strong and wild
Slow and easy
Heart and soul
So completely
I love the way you love me
And I could list a million things
I love to like about you
But they all come down to one reason
I could never live without you
I love the way you love me
Strong and wild
Slow and easy
Heart and soul
So completely
I love the way you love me
Oh baby I love the way you love me

Martina McBride - I Love You - # ONE - 1999
The sun is shinin' everyday
Clouds never get in the way
For you and me.
I've known you just a week or two
But, baby, I'm so into you
Can hardly breathe.
And I'm in so totally wrapped up
Emotionally attracted, so physically actin'
So recklessly I need you
So desperately sure as the sky is blue
Baby, I love you.
I never knew that I could feel like this
Can hardly wait til our next kiss
You're so cool.
If I'm dreamin' please don't wake me up
Cause, baby, I can't get enough
Of what you do.
And I'm in so electrically charged up kinetically
Actin' erratically, need you fanatically
You get to me magically
Sure as the sky is blue
Baby, I love you.
I can't believe that this is real.
The way I feel.
Baby, I'm gone head over heels.
And I'm in so totally wrapped up
Emotionally attracted, so physically actin'
So recklessly I need you
So desperately sure as the sky is blue
Baby, I love you.
Baby, I love you.
Do you love me too?
Baby, I love you.

I love you, I'll prove it in days to come
I swear it's true
Darling, you're the only one
I think of you, of the past and all our fun
I love you, I'll prove it in days to come
You're my darling, you've been true
I should have been good to you
You're the one that's in my heart
While we're apart
I'll be true
I'll prove it to you someday
My love is for you
In my heart you'll always stay
I've been so blue and lonesome all these days
I love you, I'll prove it a thousand ways
I'll be nice and sweet to you
And no more will you be blue
I'll prove I love you everyday
All kinds of ways
Darling please wait
Please wait until I'm free
There'll be a change
A great change made in me
I'll be true, there'll be no more blue days
I love you, I'll prove it a thousand ways

I love you because you understand, dear
Every single thing I try to do
You're always there to lend a helping hand, dear
I love you most of all because you're you

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

I love you because my heart is lighter
Every time I'm walking by your side
I love you because the future's brighter
The door to happiness you open wide

No matter what may be the style or season
I know your heart will always be true
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons -
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you,

Conway Twitty - I Love You More Today - # ONE - 1969
I want you more than anything in the world
You mean more to me than any other girl
Now he's with you and things you do with him
We've done them for so long
I love you more today, than he can from now on.
I've kissed your tears away when you were sad
Held you close, felt your warm love when you were glad
So, no matter how much love he has for you or how long
I love you more today, than he can from now on.
We've already done the things he plans to do
So don't be surprised if late at night
I'm in your dreams with you.
And if someday his love for goes wrong
I love you more today, than he can from now on.
I love you more today, than he can from now on...

Hearts burning like they were on fire
Flames changing our love to desire
But babe my heart is screaming to say
Girl, we've got to go our own way
I need more of you, changing my rain into sun
More of you, putting my blues on the run
I need more of you, darlin' I need more of you
More, anything less wouldn't do
We ain't been together too long
Strange, how did our love get so strong
There's nothing to keep us apart
And we've got to catch up to our hearts
I need more of you, changing my rain into sun
More of you, putting my blues on the run
I need more of you, darlin' I need more of you

Dolly Parton - I Really Got The Feeling - # ONE - 1979
I really got the feeling that I'll love you for a long long time
I felt it from the moment we met you didn't ask me my sign
I love my daddy but it really don't matter what my daddy might say
I really got the feeling that I'll Iove you till my dying day

You're a gentleman and a gentleman is gettin' mighty hard to find these days
And you're a tender man and you're man enough to show your love in tender ways

I really got the feeling that I'll love you..

I love those silly things you do
You make me feel once more like an innocent child or two

I really got the feeling that I'll love you..

I really got the feeling got the feeling
I really got the feeling got the feeling
I really got the feeling that I'll Iove you till my dying day

I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me?
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That's when I run to you
This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you
We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin' right on through
And our love's the only truth
That's why I run to you

Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
When it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you

I see the questions in your eyes

But you can be sure I know my part
'Cause I'll stand beside you through the years
You'll only cry those happy tears
And though I'll make mistakes
I'll never break your heart

We'll hang some memories on the wall
And when there's silver in your hair
You won't have to ask if I still care
'Cause as time turns the page
My love won't age at all

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line.
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out f or the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

Come here to me, my little chickadee
'Cause I think it's time you knew
That you're the kinda gal, I've had in mind
And I wanna play house with you
Bought the ring, took care of everything
And I'm ready to say, I do
You'll be the Mama and I'll be the Papa
'Cause I wanna play house with you
I never thought, I'd ever would get caught
By a gal who's five feet two
But it's a cinch, I love you every inch
And I wanna play house with you
When you kiss me, I'm like a kid of three
But my baby days are through
I'll build a bungalow that'll go to show
I wanna play house with you
The other gals want to marry me
But you just say, what for
I'm confessin' that you've got me guessin'
And it only makes me love you more
You never let me kiss you more than once
You're drivin' me wild, it's true
I know you're teasin' and that just the reason
Why I wanna play house with you
I never felt like playin' house before
But baby, now I do
I'll pay the bills if you'll provide the thrills
'Cause I wanna play house with you
Bought the ring, took care of everything
So give me kissin' too
You be the Mama and I'll be the Papa
'Cause I wanna play house with you

I lose my blues, honey, when I'm with you
No one else can do what you do, you're in my heart to stay
When I'm gone, and I'm all alone
I'll be singing this song for you, I want to be with you always
I'd be happy, dearest, if you could only be here
And always be nearer, forever and a day
Then we'd travel far, we'd be some big, shining star
Just you and my guitar, and stay there, sweetheart, for always
I just want to love you baby
You mean so much to me, you don't no how I feel
I'm crazy in my little world
I hope you feel the same, you really want my name
Well, you'll be the one who's to blame, if it works out wrong that day
Cause my love is true, my love is only for you
I'll never be blue, if I can be with you always

Dan Seals - I Will Be There - # ONE - 1987
We have known each other for us long
We are most like one
And the ties of our love are so strong
They could never be undone
But if you should ever get restless
Just remember where ever you go
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
There are times when you may get lonely
Feeling lost on your own
But if there's one thing this love has shown me
We are never alone
And no matter how far away you are
My love follows you
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
On a cold night, in the moonlight
When you're dreamin', and when you rise in the sunrise
Baby, I swear I will be there
Cause no matter how far away you are
My love follows you
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
I will be there, any time, I will be there
On a cold night, in the moonlight and when you rise, in the sunrise
Baby I will be there

Ricky Skaggs - I Wouldn't Change You If I Could - # ONE - 1983
I wouldn't change a single thing about you if I could
The way you are just suits me to a T
A princess in a storybook
A king upon his throne
That's what we are and you belong to me
I wouldn't change you if I could
I love you as you are
You're all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You're everything that's good
You're perfect just the way you are
I wouldn't change you if I could
Your eyes your lips, your tender smile
I'd leave them as they are
And come what may I'd never change a thing
And if I were a potter
And you a piece of clay
The only thing I'd change would be your name
I wouldn't change you if I could
I love you as you are
You're all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You're everything that's good
You're perfect just the way you are
I wouldn't change you if I could

Don Williams - I Wouldn't Want To Live If You Didn't Love Me - # ONE - 1974
Sometimes you may think I take you for granted
And granted, sometimes maybe I do
'Cause I've grown so used to you lying next to me
That I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me
No I wouldn't want to get up in the morning if you weren't there
To kiss me and start my day off right
And to be waiting when I get home with loving just for me
No I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me
It's love that makes the world go round
And my love for you just grows with leaps and bounds
'Cause you know just what to do when the world has turned all blue
And I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me

Forester Sisters - I'd Choose) You Again - # ONE - 1987
Looking in my life
Through the eyes of a young girl growing older all the time,
Maybe just a little wiser
I can clearly see
All my mistakes keep coming back to visit me
Pointing out the roads not taken
So much I'd like to change but one thing I'd do the same
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
Out of all the boys in the world
I'd choose you again
Times weren't always good
Seems like the Lord gave all the easy parts away
But every time the road got rocky
You'd look at me and say
Had all you needed long as I was there with you
You're the reason I kept going
If I could start my life anew
The first thing that I would do
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
Out of all the boys in the world
I'd choose you again
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
I'd listen to my heart and I'd choose you again
You again, you again

Alan Jackson - I'd Love You All Over Again - # ONE - 1991
Has it been ten years
Since we said I do
I've always heard marriage made one seem like two
But you're looking better than you did back then
You still make this old heart give in
And if I had it to do all over
I'd do it all over again
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again
The preacher man said till death do us part
That seemed like forever to a young man's heart
Now the days seem much shorter
The longer we love
And the memories just keep adding up
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again

Charley Pride - I'd Rather Love You - # ONE - 1971
If tonight should be our last night together I'm not sorry that we fell in love at all
If tomorrow sun should find me hurtin' for you I know
That the price for loving you would still be small
For I'd never know the thrill of your sweet lips
And the chills I get just knowing that you're mine
'Cause I've spent my life not knowing what real love is oh no
Though I'd be hurtin' I'm still certain
That I'd rather love and lose you than never know your love at all
For I'd never know the thrill...
Yes I'd rather love and lose you than never know your love at all

Clay Walker - If I Could Make A Living - # ONE - 1994
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
I'd be a millionaire in a week or two
I'd be doin' what I love and lovin' what I do
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
Early every morning when the sun comes up
I'm punching that clock on the wall
Breakin' my back just to make a buck
Wishing I was in your arms
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
I'd be a millionaire in a week or two
I'd be doin' what I love and lovin' what I do
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
I could work all day and feel right at home
Lovin' that 8 to 5
And never have to leave you here alone
When I'm workin' overtime
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
I'd be a millionaire in a week or two
I'd be doin' what I love and lovin' what I do
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
I'd be a millionaire in a week or two
I'd be doin' what I love and lovin' what I do
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you
If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you

Randy Travis - If I Didn't Have You - 1992
Well I lost my heart on the day we met
But I gained a lot, and that I don't regret.
Then I hung around 'till you said I do
I knew I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you.
Well it changed my thinking
And it changed your name.
And neither one of us will ever be the same.
And I swear I'm never gonna be untrue,
'Cause I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you.
If I didn't have you
I'd long ago
Been left in the dark, out in the cold.
Blowing around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind.
If I didn't have you
I know I'd be
Floundering around like a ship at sea.
Lost in the rain of a hurricane,
And that's where I'd have been.
But I didn't get lost cause I saw your light
Shining like a beacon on a cold dark night
And the sun came up and the skies turned blue
No I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you
Well I count my blessings every night I pray
That the lord lets me keep you just one more day
And every day he does cause God knows too
That I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you
If I didn't have you
I'd long ago
Been left in the dark, out in the cold.
Blowing around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind.
If I didn't have you
I know I'd be
Floundering around like a ship at sea.
Lost in the rain of a hurricane,
And that's where I'd have been.
Well I've already said it but I swear its true
I know I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you

George Strait - If I Know Me - # ONE - 1991
We both said some things I know we never meant,
And when I slammed the door tonight you wondered where I went.
If I know you, you're probably wonderin' what to do.
You're thinkin' that I'm gone for good, if I know you.
But if I know me, I'll turn this car around.
I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry.
I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too,
And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me.
Sometimes I lose my head, say things to break your heart,
Forgettin' if I lost your love, it would tear my world apart.
If I know you, you didn't mean one single thing you said.
Truth be known, you're dyin', cryin', lyin' there in bed.
But if I know me, I'll turn this car around.
I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry.
I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too,
And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me.
If I know me, and I know me.

Bellamy Brothers - If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me - # ONE - 1979
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
Now we can talk all night about the weather
Tell you 'bout my friends out on the coast
I could ask a lot of crazy questions
Or I could ask what I really want to know
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
The rain can fall so soft against the window
The sun can shine so bright up in the sky
But daddy always told me, Don't make small talk
He said, Come on out and say what's on your mind
So if I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight

Garth Brooks - If Tomorrow Never Comes - # ONE - 1989
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt
The way I feel about her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel
'Cause if tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
So tell that someone that you love
Just what you're thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

Montgomery Gentry - If You Ever Stop Loving Me - # ONE - 2004
My old man's backhand used to land
Hard on the side of my head
I just learned to stay out of his way
There's been street fights, blue lights
Long nights with the world sittin' on my chest
It just showed me how much I could take
Hard times, bad luck
Sometimes life sucks
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
The bank man, the boss man, the lawman
All tryin' to get their hands on me
And I ain't even done a danged thing wrong
I've been waylaid, freight-trained, short-changed
By bigger an' badder men
An' all I got to say is: Bring it on.
Hard rain, rough road
So my life goes
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
I need you
Gotta have you
In my life, on my side
Every day I'm alive
Every night when I'm greedy an' needing
You!
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
Baby, never stop lovin' me
Ah, just see what your lovin' does to me

K T Oslin - I'll Always Come Back - # ONE - 1988
It's a favorite of mine.
About a little girl and some sheep
That she could not find.
They told her not to worry,
They'd come back.
Darlin, you're my shepard,
I'm your little lamb.
But you ain't always gonna know where I am,
But don't you worry, I'll come back.
I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always run back, straight to you.
I'll never get too far away from you.
I'll never get too lost that I can't be found.
And I'm never gonna swim too far out, I might drown.
And I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
Well there's a wooden wonder from way down under,
They call a boomerang.
If you handle it right, it'll come back.
But, you must have had one when you were a boy.
'Cause you've got the touch that turns me into a toy.
And like a boomerang, I'll come back.
Keep your eyes on the horizon.
When you start to missing me,
Just look out your window and there I'll be.
'Cause I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always run back, straight to you.
I'll never get too far away from you.
I'll never get too lost that I can't be found.
And I'm never gonna swim too far out, I might drown.
And I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.

I'll hold you in my heart till I can hold you in my arms
Like you've never been held before
I'll think of you each day, and then I'll dream the night away
Till you are in my arms once more

The stars up in the sky know the reason why
I feel so blue when I'm away from you
I'll hold you in my heart till I can hold you in my arms
So, darling, please wait for me.

Changin' my life with your love
Has been so easy for you
And I'm amazed every day
And I'll need you
'Till all the mountains are valleys
And every ocean is dry, my love
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you
I'll still be loving you
Never before did I know
How loving someone could be
Now I can see, you and me
For a lifetime
Until the last moon is rising
You'll see the love in my eyes, my love
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you

Here we are talking about forever
Both know damn well it's not easy together
We've both felt love
We've both felt pain
I'll take the sunshine over the rain
And I'll try to love only you
And I'll try my best to be true
Oh darling I'll try
So I'm not scared
It's worth a chance to me
Take my hand let's face eternity
Well I can't tell you I'll never change
But I can swear that in every way
And I'll try to love only you
And I'll try my best to be true
Oh darling I'll try
I'm not perfect
Just another man
But I will give you all that I am
I'll try.
To be true to you I'll try
I'll try
To always love you I'll try

Carter Family - I'll Twine 'mid The Ringlets - ZZZ
I'll twine 'mid the ringlets of my raven black hair
The lilies so pale and the roses so fair
The myrtle so bright with an emerald hue
And the pale aronatus with eyes of bright blue

I'll sing and I'll dance, my laugh shall be gay
I'll cease this wild weeping, drive sorrow away
Tho' my heart is now breaking, he never shall know
That his name made me tremble and my pale 'cheeks to glow

I'll think of him never, I'll be wildly gay
I'll charm ev'ry heart, and the crowd I will sway
I'll live yet to see him regret the dark hour
When he won, then neglected, the frail wildwood flower

He told me he loved me and promis'd to love
Through ill and misfortune, all others above
Another has won him; all, misery to tell
He left me in silence, no word of farewell

He taught me to love him, he call'd me his flower
That blossom'd for him all the brighter each hour
But I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
My visions of love have all faded away.

At five oclock she knows Ill soon be home.
She don't worry bout me runnin' 'round,
'Cause all of my good times are wating right there for me
and she knows where I'll be when the sun goes down.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
Our world turns around a little gold band,
and love leads us through life, hand in hand.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
We fall asleep at night thinking , ain't love grand.
That's why I'm a stand by my woman man.
When she's down, she knows I'll be beside her.
'Cause I'm not just her lover, I'm her friend.
Our love keeps getting better and I'll gladly spend forever
standing by the woman who stands by her man.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
Our world turns around a little gold band,
and love leads us through life, hand in hand.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
We fall asleep at night thinking , ain't love grand.
That's why I'm a stand by my woman man.

Lonestar - I'm Already There (Message From Home) - # ONE - ZZZ
He called her on the road
From a lonely, cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
But when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
Said, Daddy when you coming home?
He said the first thing that came to his mind
I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh, I'm already there
She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you, darling
Don't worry about the kids--they'll be all right
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes
I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there
We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are
I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there
Oh, I'm already there

John Conlee - I'm Only In It For The Love - # ONE - 1983
There's something you got that really gets me going
It's hard to believe the way the feelings growing
Let me say before my heart starts showing
I'm only in it for the love
I want you to know you got my full attention
And every move is with my best intention
Before we go on I thought I aught to mention
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love

Brad Paisley - I'm Still A Guy - # ONE - 2008
When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnic
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You're probably thinking that you're going to change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up all but no matter what
Remember I'm still a guy
When you see a priceless French painting
I see drunk, naked girls
You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might
Walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy
I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by
I can hear you now talking to your friends
Saying Yeah girls he's come a long way
From dragging his knuckles and carrying a club
And building a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy
And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by
These days there's dudes getting facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tackle-box
With all of these men lining up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy
All my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy

Doug Stone - In A Different Light - # ONE - 1991
Every morning I watch you
Walk into the office, in you business suit
And matching shoes
With your hair pulled back neatly
You tug at your glasses
And you sit down just 3 desks down
And I watch you in the fluorescent glare,
And my mind drifts away somewhere
And I see you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind.... you're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
There's girls at the office
The guys always notice, when they walk by
But, you're not the type
They don't know what I know
How somethings just don't show
In tailored tweets, that's fine with me
Let them all think what they want to
As for me when I look at you
I see you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind... You're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
Baby it's you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind... You're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
It's You
In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind you're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night

Phil Vassar - In A Real Love - # ONE - 2004
I was eighteen makin' minimum wage
With a letterman jacket and a Chevrolet
I thought I was cool, man I ruled the school
You were cum laude with the strawberry lips
You had the whole world danglin' at your fingertips
Your senior year and I was Daddy's worst fear
We ran off on graduation night
Thought a copule of left hand rings would make everything right
With a little bit of love, little bit a learn
Little bit of watchin' a few more candles burn
Findin' out what life was
A little bit of fuss, a little bit of fight
Little bit of kiss and makin' up all night
And all day wakin' up in a real love
Twenty two workin' double overtime
I was spendin' dollars and makin' dimes
We were overdrawn and barely hangin' on
Then one night you came to me
With tears in your eyes and an E P T
And said guess what, baby ready or not
I just smiled but I was scared to death
How am I gonna have a kid when I'm still a kid myself
With a little bit of love, little bit a learn
Little bit of watchin' a few more candles burn
Findin' out what life was
A little bit of fuss, a little bit of fight
Little bit of kiss and makin' up all night
And all day wakin' up in a real love
It all adds up to a real love

Ronnie Milsap - In Love - # ONE - 1986
I can feel you wantin' to fall whenever I'm with you
I can tell you wanna give in the same way that I do
Love can be a hurtin' thing when faithless hearts deceive
I know you've been the fool before but baby you won't with me.
If only you believe, if only you believe
In love, it's what we make it
In love, we've got to be strong
In love, it's where I believe that we belong.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
Some people just gotta talk, they say love is on shaky ground
And every where you look these days
There's a broken heart going down, down, down.
Baby more than anything I want you in my life, yeah
Take my hand and show some faith and believe what you feel inside
Believe what you feel inside because I want what you feel inside.
In love, it's what we make it
In love, we've got to be strong
In love, it's where I believe that we belong.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
Baby, I feel it and I know you feel it too
So hold on to me, and I'll hold on to you.
In love, I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
In love, we've got to be strong
It's where I believe that we belong, yeah.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you...

John Conlee - In My Eyes - # ONE - 1984
She just a woman a hundred pounds of flesh and blood
Quick with a smile warm with a touch for me
she's just a woman and not the least or the most desired
But she's set one man's heart of fire and it's me that she wants to please
And in my eyes god never made a more beautiful girl
In my eyes there's no one more lovely in all of the world
And she looks at me at times with such surprise
When she sees how special she is in my eyes
she's only human and she cries sometimes when she looks in the mirror
And counts a new line that seems to appeared overnight
she's only human it's not that she's vain she's just afraid
That there'll come a time when I'll turn away at the sight but I swear that's not right
And in my eyes she just grows lovelier to me
In my eyes she's only aging gracefully
And a thousand strands of gray just won't disguise
The woman she'll always be in my eyes
Sometimes she makes mistakes but I'm aware of her faults
Her moods go up and down but that's just because
she's just a woman and giving her love only to me
Without her health I would be less of a man than she thinks I am
And in my eyes love never changes or pretends
In my eyes her mystery never ends
And everything I've dreamed as years go by
Makes her love grow sweeter still in my eyes
In my eyes she is my woman

Collin Raye - In This Life - # ONE - 1992
For all I've been blessed in this life
There was an emptiness in me
I was imprisoned by the power of gold
With one honest touch you set me free
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
For every mountain I have climbed
Every Raging river crossed
You were the treasure I longed to find
Without your love I would be lost
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
In this life, I was loved by you

Kenny Rogers & Dolly PartonIslands In The Stream - # ONE - 19831983 ACM Single of the Year
Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was somethin' going on
You do something to me that I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got somethin' goin' on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothin' if you got no one
And you did walk in tonight
Slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never
We start and end as one, in love forever
We can ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
Sail away
Oh, come sail away with me
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah

Keith Whitley - It Ain't Nothin' - # ONE - 1990
My boss is the boss's son and that makes for a real long day.
When that day is finally done I'm facing 40 thousand cars on the interstate.
Feeling lower than a well diggers shoes
knee deep in a mess of blues.
But those blues just fade away
When I hear my baby say.
[Chorus]
It ain't nothin a little bit of love won't fix
It ain't nothin but a scratch, a little bit of love can't stitch.
It ain't nothin a little bit of love can't heal.
Your love makes me feel.
No matter what hands me -- it ain't nothin, it ain't nothin.
It was written all over her face she was about to climb the walls.
She said you gotta get me out of this place cause even
Cindarella got to go to the ball.
If you multiply hell times three that's what this day has been like for me.
I said honey we'll do the town.
Just don't let it get you down.
Cause......
[Chorus]

It ain't nothin, it ain't nothin, it ain't nothin, naugh it ain't nothin, it ain't nothin

George Strait - It Just Comes Natural - # ONE - 2007
Sun shines, clouds rain
Train whistles blow and guitars play
Preachers preach, farmers plow
Wishes go up, and the world goes round
And I love you
It just come natural
It just comes natural
Seasons change, rivers wind
Tumble weeds roll, and the stars shine
Wind howls, dawn breaks
Cowboys riding time slips away
And I love you
It just come natural
It's what I was born to do
Don't have to think it through
Baby, it's so easy loving you
It just come natural
It's what I was born to do
Don't have to think it through
Baby, it's so easy loving you
Fire burns, waves crash
Seeds grow and good things last
Ships sail, dreams fly
Night falls and full moons rise
And I love you
It just come natural
And I love you
It just come natural
It just come natural
It just come natural

Floyd Tillman - It Makes No Difference Now - ZZZ
Makes no difference now what kind of life fate hands me
I'll get along without you now, that's plain to see
I don't care what happens next, for I'll get by somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

It was just a year ago when I first met you
I learned to love you and I thought you'd love me too
But that's all in the past and I'll forget somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

Now that we have really parted I can't believe we're through
I don't blame myself, I'm sure I can't blame you
There was something had to happen, and it happened somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

After all is said and done I'll soon forget you
Altho' I know that it will be so hard to do
Let things happen as they will, and I'll get by somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now.

Ty Herndon - It Must Be Love - # ONE - 1998
I just dropped her off
I'm thinking, 'Oh, what a night'
I oughta be flying
But I'm sitting here at this green light
I thought I was in control
Though I knew where I wanted to go
She's got me turned inside out
I'm wondering what it's all about
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
It's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall
(Does she trouble your mind?)
It's no trouble at all.
Oh, I don't know
But something tells me it must be love.
I just missed my turn
Guess I'm not thinking straight
Oh, and what's with this car
It's driving me back to her place
I'm out here circling around
I've already covered this ground
These feelings just can't be denied
So what am I trying to decide?
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
It's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall
(Does she trouble your mind?)
It's no trouble at all.
Oh, I don't know
But something tells me it must be love.
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
Oh, it's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall
(Does she trouble your mind?)
It's no trouble at all.

Who's gonna pick you up whenever you fall
Who's gonna be there anytime you call
It'll be me
Oh, it'll be me
Who's gonna sooth you in the middle of the night
Who's gonna hold you and make it right
It'll be me
Oh, it'll be me
I've had my share of the rough times too
You gave me all that you had
You were always there to stand by me
Now it's my turn, darling, to give it all back
Who's gonna wipe all your tears away
Who's gonna bring out the sunshine
On your cloudy days
It'll be me
Oh, it'll be me
Anytime you need to call on me
Any ole time's ok
Darling it don't matter at all to me
You know I'll be on my way
Who's gonna pick you up whenever you fall
Who's gonna be there anytime you call

Merle Haggard - It's All In The Movies - # ONE - 1975
They were so much in love with life, happy in every way
But love the movie began with, some how got lost in the play
Like a fire burning out of control,
You got caught up in the actor's role,
And you cried on my shoulder when it came to an end
But that's all in the movies,
It won't happen to you and I
That's all in the movies so baby don't cry
It's all in the movies
It won't happen to us I know
It's all in the movies,
Just a bad picture show
That's all in the movies
It won't happen to you and I
That's all in the movies so baby don't cry
It's all in the movies
It can happen to us I know
It's all in the movies,
Just a bad picture show

I was sure I'd lost my chance for forever
I never dreamed we'd ever meet again
Now here we are alone once more together
Doing all the loving things we used to do back then
Its we like never said goodbye love
You're just a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye
Its good to hear you talk about the old times
Its good to hear your sweet voice once again
Right now all I want to do is touch you
And feel the love start happening
The way it happened then
Its we like never said goodbye love
We're both a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
'Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye
Its we like never said goodbye love
We're both a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
'Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye

And every day's the same since I met you
It's such a pretty world today knowing that you're mine
And happinsess is being close to you
And though the rain may fall my skies will all be blue
If I look close enough the sun will come shining through

Sonny James - It's The Little Things - # ONE - 1967
The way you fix my tie in the morning and always brush my coat before I go
The hurried kiss I get from you when I'm leaving
It's the little things that make me love you so
The way you take my arm when we go walking
The way you hold my hand when we're at a show
The way your eyes say more than you when we're talking
It's the little things that make me love you so
Those little things you knew that make me love you
They're all I need to make my dreams come true
And you know what tears me all to pieces
Is the way you tell me that you love me too
The way you know just how I like my coffee
And how you chase away my every care
And the way you go around turning lights down low
It's the little things that make me love you so
It's the little things that make me love you so

Dancing in the dark
Middle of the night
Taking your heart
And holding it tight
Emotional touch
Touching my skin
And askin' you to do
What you've been doing
All over again
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
I've just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go
It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love
Better than I was
More than I am
And all of this happened
By taking your hand
And who I am now
Is who I wanted to be
And now that we're together
I'm stronger than ever, I'm happy and free
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
And if you ask me why I've changed
All I gotta do is say your sweet name
It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love
Oh, it's a beautiful thing

[Chorus:]
I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much
When you get through with me
Well, I'm losing weight
And turning mighty pale
Looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

Well, I thought the day I met you
You were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit
My dreams and plans

But now, the pace we're living
Takes the wind from my sail
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]

Well, every night you drag me
Where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down

I'm about as helpless
As a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]

Dolly Parton - Joshua - # ONE - 1971
Well a good way down the railroad track
There was a little old rundown shack
And in it lived a man I'd never seen
Folks said he was a mean and vicious man
And you better not set foot on his land
But I didn't think nobody could be that mean

So I took me a walking down the railroad track
I's a gonna go down to that little old shack
And just find out if all them things I haerd was true
Was a big black dog a lyin' out in the yard
And he growled at me and I swallowed hard
And I heard somebody say well who are you

Oh and there he stood in the door of his shack
And his beard and his hair was long and black
And he was the biggest man I'd ever seen
When he spoke his voice was low and deep
But he just didn't frighten me
Cause somehow I just knew he wasn't mean

He said what you doing snoopin' round my place
And I saw a smile come across his face
So I smiled back and I told him who I was
He said come on in and pull you up a chair
You might as well since you're already here
He said you can call me Joshua

Oh Joshua Joshua what you doing living all alone
Joshua Joshua ain't you got nobody to call your own no-no no-no
[ harmonica ]
We talked till the sun was cleaned out of sight
And we still talked when it come daylight
But there was just so much we had to say hey
Now I'd spend my life in an orphan's home
And just like him I was all alone
So I said yeah when he asked me if I'd stay

Well we grew closer as time went on
And that little old shack was a happy home
And we just couldn't help but fall in love
That big black dog and that little old shack
A sittin' down by the railroad track
It's plenty good enough for me and Joshua

Joshua Joshua well you're just what I been looking for
Joshua Joshua we ain't gonna be lonesome anymore Lord Lord
[ yodel ]
Me and Joshua me and Joshua
Me and Joshua yeah yeah me and Joshua

Lady Antebellum - Just a Kiss - # ONE - 2011
Lyin' here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings
When it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile
I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back
When I'm holding you in my arms
We don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight
I know that if we give this a little time
It'll only bring us closer
To the love we wanna find
It's never felt so real
No it's never felt so right
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight
No I don't want to say goodnight
I know it's time to leave,
But you'll be in my dreams
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right
With just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

Just a little lovin, ' yeah
Will go a long way
Well you made me happy
The rest of my days
Why don't you put your arms around me,
And I'll be your slave
'Cause just a little lovin' will go a long way
Ever since time began love has ruled the world
Even adam set the pace and started it a whirl
I met you and now I know you're the girl for me
Why don't you come on home and you'll plainly see
That just a little lovin'
Will go a long way
And you make me happy
The rest of my days
Why don't you put your arms around me
And I'll be your slave
'Cause just a little lovin'
Will go a long way
I don't believe you really know how much I love you
If you did you'd come on back and make my dreams come true
Your eyes, your lips, your lovin' kiss seem to linger here
Well you'll forgive but please don't forget that just a little lovin'
Will go a long way
Well you make me happy girl,
The rest of my days
Why don't you put your arms around me yeah
And I'll be your slave
'Cause just a little lovin'
Will go a long way

Phil Vassar - Just Another Day in Paradise - # ONE - 2000
The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills, overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
Baby, don't kick it.
I promise I'll fix it
Long about a million other things
Well, it's ok. It's so nice
It's just another day in paradise
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise
Friday, you're late
Guess we'll never make our dinner date
At the restaurant you start to cry
Baby, we'll just improvise
Well, plan be looks like
Dominoes' pizza in the candle light
Then we'll tippy toe to our room
Make a little love that's overdue
But somebody had a bad dream
Mama and daddy
Can meand my teddy
Come in to sleep in between?
Yeah it's ok. It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise
Well, it's ok. It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise
For just another day in paradise
Well, it's the kids screaming. The phone ringing
Just another day
Well, it's Friday. You're late
Oh yeah, it's just another day in paradise

Tanya Tucker - Just Another Love - # ONE - 1986
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well, I hear you've got a reputation in town,
For takin' all the young girls an' breakin' them down.
You're givin' me an invitation to stay,
But boy, you know, my heart says I oughtta be runnin' away.
Well, I've never been very, so I guess it's my turn,
I'm gonna see how strong I am.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well you've got some kind of magic in your big brown eyes,
Where'd you ever learn how to hypnotise?
Just like in old men's books that I've read.
Drinkin' lemonade in the shade of my canopy bed.
Well, I've never been hurt, so I'll see what it's worth,
I'm gonna see how strong I am.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want tobe
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well, I've never been hurt, so I'll see what it's worth,
I'm gonna give your love a try.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
Oh no, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.

Anne Murray - Just Another Woman in Love - # ONE - 1984
I'm strong, I'm sure, I'm in control, a lady with a plan
Believing that life is a neat little package I hold in my hand
I've got it together, they call me the girl who knows just what to say and do
Still I fumble and fall, run into the wall, 'cause when it comes to you, I'm
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love
So pardon me if I should stare and tremble like a child
That wanting you look all over your face is driving me wild
I'm just what you make me, can't wait 'till you take me and set all my feelin's free
I know that you can, so come be my man, tonight I want to be
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love

Tex Ritter - Just Beyond the Moon - 1967
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
My mother and my father were in love for 50 years
So when dad died we wondered why my mother shed no tears
We asked her once about it but she wouldn't tell us why
Instead she'd walk outside each night and smile up at the sky
Then just before she left us she called us to her side…
She told us what my father said to her just before he died
I remember when you said you'd never leave me
Through these golden years i've kept the same vow too
But now that i am going please don't leave me
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
You can look up every night and you'll see me light the light
Where i'll watch for you to join me someday soon
We'll go lookin through the stars for the heaven that is ours
And i know we'll find it soon somewhere just beyond the moon
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
Ill just sit there by a star and i'll watch you from afar
Til i see you walking toward me someday soon
Then together hand in hand we'll find our promised land
And we'll settle down forever darlin' just beyond the moon

James Otto - Just Got Started Lovin' You - # ONE - 2008
You don't have to go now honey
Call and tell 'em you won't be in today
Baby there ain't nothin' at the office
So important it can't wait
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What's the point in fightin' what we're feelin'
We both know we'll never win
Ain't this what we're missin'
Let's just stop all this resistin' and give in
Let me wrap my arms around you
You know you don't want to leave this room
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon
So won't you lay back down beside me
Girl just like I know you're wantin' to
Trust me when I tell you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
Come back and let me hold you darlin'

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight
I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars
Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude
I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Charley Pride - Kiss an Angel Good Mornin' - 1971
When ever I chance to meet, some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I've always got a smiling face, anytime & any place
And every time they ask me why I just smile & say
You've got to kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home
Well people may try to guess, the secret of my happiness
But some of them never learn it's a simple thing
The secret I'm speaking of, is a woman & a man in love
And the answer is in this song that I always sing
You've got to kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home
Kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Lady
I'm your knight in shining armor and I love you
You have made me what I am and I am yours
My love

There's so many ways I want to say, I love you.
Let me hold you in my arms forever more
You have gone and made me such a fool
I'm so lost in your love
And oh, we belong together
Won't you believe in my song?

Lady
For so many years, I thought I'd never find you
You have come into my life and made me whole
Forever
Let me wake to see you each and every morning
Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear

In my eyes, I see no one else but you
There's no other love like our love
And yes, oh yes I'll always want you near me
I've waited for you for so long
Lady
Your love's the only love I need

And beside me is where I want you to be
'Cause my love
There's something I want you to know
You're the love of my life
You're my lady

Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty - Lead Me On - # ONE - 1971
Once I made a promise that I'd never lead you on
But I feel the yearn to love you even though I know it's wrong
You'll have to take my hand and lead me slowly through the door
I'll be wrong in what I'm doin' I can't refuse you anymore
Lead me on and take control of how I feel
I can't do this on my own 'cause it's against my will

I need love warm and tender in a way I've never known
If you want me I'll go with you but you'll have to lead me on
Lead me on and take control of how I feel
I can't do this on my own 'cause it's against my will
But I need love warm and tender in a way I've never known
If you want me I'll go with you but you'll have to lead me on

Lionel Cartwright - Leap of Faith - # ONE - 1991
You want a no risk guarantee before you take a chance
You wanna know how the song will end before you start to dance
Well, I can't foretell the future but my heart clearly sees
Your hand in mine for a long, long time if you could just believe

And take a leap of faith, cast away your doubt
Darlin', come what may, we can work it out
A love that's real will always find a way
If you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take

It's a leap of faith
I understand all your doubts and fears of laying your heart on the line
But aren't you afraid of just throwing away a love like yours and mine
I know your heart's been broken, you've been let down before
Though the stakes are high, give it one more try
This time you can be sure

And take a leap of faith, cast away your doubt
Darlin', come what may, we can work it out
A love that's real will always find a way
And if you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take

It's a leap of faith
If you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take

It's a leap of faith

Leave me lonely
leave me alone
I got somebody special
waitin' back home

she saves her love for me
I save my love for her
You're awful pretty, so pretty girl
I'd love to talk to you but I don't wanna
lead you on to somewhere
I don't wanna go, don't wanna go

So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
to be faithful and true
and it matters to me and her
The matter is one man faithful and true
to me, to her, and to you

Somewhere else girl some other time
I might take you home, I might make you mine
I'd do for you, what I'm doing for her
If things were different oh but there not I can't
give to you what I haven't got to give anymore
I've given my love, given my love

So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
Please understand
I'm doing the best I can
Just leave me lonely leave me alone
I got somebody special waitin' back

home she saves her love for me
I save my love for her
So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
to be faithful and true
and it matters to me and her

The matter is one man faithful and true

Let me be the one to walk with you
When you want somebody to talk with you
Anything that makes you happy I wanna do
Oh darling let me be the one

Let me be the one who means the most
The one you wanna love and call your own
And when you choose your partner I wanna be the choice
Oh please let me be the one

Let me be the one to sit with you
And when you want some lovin' I'll know just what to do

Lots of lots of huggin' and a kiss or two
You've gotta let me be the one
Let me be the one to take you out
To your favorite places you have no doubt
And when the evening's gone we'd kiss goodnight
Oh please let me be the one


Let me be the one to share with you
All your little pleasures and sorrows too
In all kind of weather I wanna be with you
Oh please let me be one

Let me be the one to hold your hand

When the preacher says do you take this man?
All these happy thoughts will mean so much fun
If you'd only let me be the one

There's a little moonlight dancing on the sand
There's a warm breeze blowing by the ocean as you're taking my hand

You need to know where I'm standing now
That I'm right on the edge of giving into ya
Baby it's a long way down
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?

I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
The scent of your perfume floatin' in the air
You're looking like an angel lying on a blanket with a halo of hair
And those lips look too good to be true
Once I taste that kiss, I know what'll happen

I'll be at the mercy of you
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

Bellamy Brothers - Let Your Love Flow - 1976
There's a reason
For the sunshine day

There's a reason
Why I'm feelin' so high
Must be the season
When that love light shines all around us
So let that feeling
Grad you deep inside

And send you reeling
Where your love can't hide
And then go stealing
Through the summer nights
With your lover
Just let your love flow

Like a mountain stream
And let your love grow
With the smallest of dreams
And let your love show
And you'll know what I mean
It's the season

Let your love fly
Like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you
To all living things
And let your love shine
And you'll know what I mean,

That's the reason
There's a reason
For the warm sweet nights
There's a reason
For the candle lights
Must be the season

When those love rites shine all around us
So let the wonder
Take you into space
And lay you under
Its loving embrace
Feel the thunder

As it warms your face
You can't hold back
Just let your love flow
Like a mountain stream
And let your love grow
With the smallest of dreams

And let your love show
And you'll know what I mean
It's the season
Let your love fly
Like a bird on the wing
And let your love bind you

To all living things
And let your love shine
And you'll know what I mean
That's the reason

Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's play the games we played on our wedding night
To lock and bolt the door is only right

Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Seems like lately people love to play with fire
And the other games they play are just as bad
I'd rather stay at home and feel your burning lips
And play the kind of games that make me glad
Oh, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

Let's play the games we played on our wedding night
To lock and bolt the door is only right
Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's don't chase around and make each other weary
Let's keep all our love at home and out of sight
Let's leave everything like jealousy behind us

And let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Oh, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's play the games we played on our wedding night
And to lock and bolt the door is only right
Honey, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

Pardon me, you left your tears on the jukebox
And I'm afraid they got mixed up with mine
I don't mean to pry, it's just that I
Noticed you goin' out of your mind

It looks like were two of a kind
Let's fall to pieces together
Why should we both fall apart
Let's fall to pieces together
Right here in each other's arms
Alone is much better together

When the worst is still yet to come
So let's share the rest, of the tears that are left
From two hearts that just came undone
Why should we go crazy alone

We've had a lot of conversations
We've analyzed our situation
There's only so much that words can say
After awhile they just get in the way

So lets stop talking about it
And start getting down to love
Lets stop talking about it
We've already said enough
Can't we stop talking about it
I can't take any more

I'm ready, yes I'm ready
So what are we waiting for
We covered all there is to cover
Its clear that were wanting one another
Well, lets give our feelings a chance to be heard
A moment of passions worth a thousand words

So lets stop talking about it
And start getting down to love
Lets stop talking about it
We've already said enough
Can't we stop talking about it
I can't take any more

I'm ready, yes I'm ready
So what are we waiting for
Lets stop talking about it

Sharing each other as we go
Let's take the long way around the world
And let's take it real slow.
I get hungry just to talk, take your hand and take a walk

I never have you to myself enough
The two of us are really one and when it's all said and done
The only thing that really lasts is love.
Let's take the long way around the world
Sharing each other as we go
Let's take the long way around the world

And let's take it real slow.

John Conlee - Lifetime Guarantee - ZZZ
Some people fall in love to fast
Their flame burns hot but it just don't last
And before they know it they want to be free

And they don't care if they leave behind
A lonely heart and a broken mind
Just a sad situation, a bad policy
But baby, with me you've got a lifetime guarantee

A lifetime guarantee there'll be no teardrops
Full coverage to protect you from all harm

I can't promise there won't be some hard times
But you'll always be safe inside my arms
Cause baby, with me you've got a lifetime guarantee

A lifetime guarantee there'll be no teardrops
Full coverage to protect you from all harm
I can't promise there won't be some hard times

But you'll always be safe inside my arms
Cause baby, with me you've got a lifetime guarantee
Oh yeah baby, with me you've got a lifetime guarantee

Clint Black - Like The Rain - # ONE - 1996
I never liked the rain until I walked through it with you
Every thunder cloud that came my way was one more
I might not get through
On the darkest day there's always light and now I see it too
But I never liked the rain until I walked th
Rough it with you

I hear it falling in the night and filling up my mind
All the heaven's rivers come to light I see it all unwind
I hear it talking through the trees and on the window pain
And when I hear it I just can't believe I never liked the rain
Like the rain I have fallen for you and I know just why you
Liked the rain always calling for you I'm falling for you now

Just like the rain
When the cloud is rolling over thunder striking me
It's as bright as lightning and I wonder why I couldn't
See
That it's always good and when the flood is gone
We still remain

Guess I've known all along I just belong here with you falling
Like the rain I have fallen for you and I know why you
Liked the rain always calling for you, I'm falling for you no
W
Just like the rain I have fallen for you
I'm falling for you now just like the rain

And when the night falls on our better days
And we're looking to the sky
For the winds to take us high above the plains
I know that we'll find better ways to look
Into the eye
Of the storms that will be calling

Forever we'll be falling
Like the rain I have fallen for you and I know just why you
Liked the rain always calling for you, I'm falling
For you now just
Like the rain I have fallen for you and I kn
Ow just why you

Like the rain always calling for you, I'm falling
For you now just
Like the rain I have fallen for you and I know just why you
Like the rain always calling for you, I'm falling
For you now just
Like the rain

Like the rain
Like the rain
He rain
Like the rain
Like the rain

Alan Jackson - Little Bitty - # ONE - 1996
Have a little love on a little honeymoon
You got a little dish and you got a little spoon
A little bitty house and a little bitty yard
A little bitty dog and a little bitty car
Well, it's alright to be little bitty
A little hometown or a big old city

Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while
A little bitty baby in a little bitty gown
It'll grow up in a little bitty town
A big yellow bus and little bitty books
It all started with a little bitty look

Well, it's alright to be little bitty
A little hometown or a big old city
Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while
You know you got a job and a little bitty check
Six pack of beer and a television set

Little bitty world goes around and around
Little bit of silence and a little bit of sound
A good ole boy and a pretty little girl
Start all over in a little bitty world
A little bitty plan and a little bitty dream
It's all part of a little bitty scheme

It's alright to be little bitty
A little hometown or a big old city
Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while
It's alright to be little bitty
A little hometown or a big old city

Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while

Roger MillerLittle Green Apples - 19681968 ACM Single of the Year 1969 Grammy Song Of The Year
And I wake up in the mornin'
With my hair down in my eyes and she says Hi
And I stumble to the breakfast table
While the kids are goin' off to school; goodbye
And she reaches out 'n' takes my hand
And squeezes it 'n' says How ya feelin', hon?

And I look across at smilin' lips
That warm my heart and see my mornin' sun
And if that's not lovin' me
Then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime

And there's no such thing as Doctor Seuss
Or Disneyland, and Mother Goose, no nursery rhyme
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when my self is feelin' low
I think about her face aglow and ease my mind

Sometimes I call her up at home knowin' she's busy
And ask her if she could get away and meet me
And maybe we could grab a bite to eat
And she drops what she's doin' and she hurries down to meet me
And I'm always late
But she sits waitin' patiently and smiles when she first sees me

'Cause she's made that way
And if that ain't lovin' me
Then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes
And there's no such thing as make-believe

Puppy dogs, autumn leaves 'n' BB guns
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis

I get out on the redneck side every now and then
Call up my baby she comes over and the party begins
Yeah, she's a slick nickel she's right on the money
I wouldn't give her up for a thousand buckle bunnies
I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk
She's got my number, knows my favorite songs on the jukebox

Goes to gettin' down like crazy and the whole place rocks
We'll have a few and get to feelin' right
She'll be my queen bee I'll be her neon knight
I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk
Oh, oh, I love her so
Stand back give her room boys and watch her go

She's a looker, heads turn when she comes through the door
A show stopper when she gets to goin' out on the floor
We leave all our troubles and cares way behind us
I feel like I'm a king when I'm out with her highness
I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk
Oh, oh, I love her so

Stand back give her room boys and watch her go
We leave all our troubles and cares way behind us
I feel like I'm a king when I'm out with her highness
I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk
I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk
Oh I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk!

Oak Ridge Boys - Little Things - # ONE - 1985
It's the way you kiss me when we're walkin' down the street
It's the words you whisper when we're driftin' off to sleep
A certain way you touch me, the way you say hello

Baby it's the little things that make me love you so.
The way you pour your coffee in the early mornin' light
The way you call my name out in the middle of the night
How you sit for hours singin' with the radio
Baby it's the little things that make me love you so.
It's not the memories or all that we've been through

It's not the distant dreams that keep me coming back to you
It's not the promises that keep me warm at night
It's just the every day, it's just the safe and sound, it's just our home sweet home.
And when we're old and gray now and the kids have gone away
We're alone together I may turn to you and say
There's something I forgot to tell you and by now I think you'll know

Baby it's the little things that make me love you so.
Woah woah, Baby it's the little things that make me love you so.
Walkin' in the park, kissin' in the dark
The little things that baby makes me feel alright now
Baby it's the little things that make me love you
Baby it's the little things that make me love you so

Alan Jackson - Livin' on Love - # ONE - 1994
Two young people, without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings

And settle with just what they need
Living on love
She don't care 'bout what's in style
She just likes the way he smile
It takes more than marvel and time
Living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime
It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking

It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Living on love
Two old people, without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side on that front porch swing
Living on love

He can't see anymore
She can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they walk through that door
Just living on love
Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime

It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn't take much, when you get enough
Living on love

Living on love, buying on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime
It's like that old fashioned storybook rhyme
Living on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinking
Love can walk through fire without blinking

George Strait - Living and Living Well - # ONE - 2002
Had a nice little life
A little boat a little beach
A little routine I liked

A blue ocean view
Free to go with the flow
Anywhere that I wanted to
But the moment you set foot on my shore
That's when I knew
There's a difference in

Living and living well
You can't have it all
All by yourself
Something's always missing
'Til you share it with someone else
There's a difference in living and living well

'Til you smiled with me
Thought that I had it good
As good as it could be
From the back of my deck
Caught a fish caught a breeze
And a thousand red sunsets

But sitting here with you girl I just saw
The best one yet
There's a difference in
Living and living well
You can't have it all
All by yourself

Something's always missing
'Til you share it with someone else
There's a difference in living and living well
My days are brighter
My sky a deeper blue
My nights are sweeter

When I'm with you
There's a difference in
Living and living well
You can't have it all
All by yourself
Something's always missing

'Til you share it with someone else
There's a difference in living and living well

Ty Herndon - Living in a Moment - # ONE - 1996
Well the world just lost two lonely people
The world just lost two broken hearts
The odds were against it but baby here we are
In our own little place in our own little corner

This old cold world just got a little warmer
For the rest of my life I'm gonna hold you in my arms
And when they carve my stone all they'll need to write on it
Is 'Once lived a man who got all he ever wanted'
Tell me something, who could ask for more?
Than to be living in a moment you would die for

If you never get rich on what money can buy
It don't matter to me, I'll tell you why
I've got it all when I'm holding you this way
I'll live to love you, I'd die to keep you
Safe inside these arms that need you
I'll be loving you with the very last breath I take

And when they carve my stone all they'll need to write on it
Is 'Once lived a man who got all he ever wanted'
Tell me something, who could ask for more?
Than to be living in a moment you would die for
Ashes to ashes
Dust into dust

I'll lay beside you
Forever in love
And when they carve my stone all they'll need to write on it
Is 'Once lived a man who got all he ever wanted'
Tell me something, who could ask for more?
Than to be living in a moment, loving every minute

Tell me something, who could ask for more?
Than to be living in a moment you would die for, mmm
Living in a moment you would die for
Oh baby, I'm living in a moment I would die for
Oh, living in a moment I would die for

Billie Jo Spears - Lonely Hearts Club - 1978
When the letter came this morning
happy teardrops filled my eyes
It had a picture of a smiling face
and a ticket tucked inside
He didn't have to write one word

I understood it all
The picture said I love you and
the ticket said Come home
Well the big ole wheels
are turning as we roll on down the line
Hey there big conductor

won't you get me there on time
The Kudzu vines are winding
up the trees beside the road
The grass is getting greener
so we must be getting close
There he stands a-waiting,

as the train pulls to the gate
There's so many things to ask him
but they're gonna have to wait
With cap in hand he stands there
every hair is combed in place
His shiny boots reflec/ting

the big smile on his face
Lonely Hearts Club tell me,
why do they call you lonely?
You've made me happier
than I've ever been
For the price of a letter

and one old faded picture
You've helped me
find myself to love a man
Arm in arm he leads me
to his buckboard by the tree
Hand in hand we ride

to the house he built for me
He picks me up and gently
carries me through
the cabin door
Goodbye Lonely Hearts Club
I don't need you anym/ore

Lonely Hearts Club tell me,
why do they call you lonely?
You've made me happier
than I've ever been
For the price of a letter
and one old faded picture

You've helped me
find myself to love a man
Lonely Hearts Club tell me,
why do they call you lonely?
You've made me happier
than I've ever been

For the price of a letter
and one old faded picture
You've helped me
find myself to love a man
Lonely Hearts Club tell me,
Why do they call you lonely?

Michael Martin Murphey - A Long Line of Love - # ONE - 1987
I bought a beautiful diamond ring I offered it to the sweetest thing I know
And she said she would take it
We started making some wedding plans she looked at me and she took my hand
And said are you sure we can make it

I said my granddad's still in love with my grandma
I said my dad still thinks my moms the sweetest thing he ever saw
I come from a long line of love
When the times get hard we don't give up
Forever is in my heart and in me blood
You see I come from a long line of love

Years went by and we had a son now he thinks he found someone for him
And they're planning a wedding
He called me up on the phone today just to see what I had to say to him
Did I think he was ready?
I said what his grandfather used to say to me
Its been handed down for ages it runs in our family

You come from a long line of love
When the times get hard we don't give up
Forever is in your heart and in your blood
Son you come from a long line of love
We come from a long line of love

Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us

After all that we've been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other
If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us

Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
Look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin' in forever

If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us
In a hundred years from now
I know without a doubt
They'll all look back and wonder how

We made it all work out
Chances are
We'll go down in history
When they want to see
How true love should be
They'll just look at us

If you ever walk down memory lane thru gardens fresh and fair
Look for me, and I'll be there
Like the dew upon the flowers in the morning bright and clear
Look for me I'll be there.

I'll be with you in the morning and I'll be there every night
I'll be there when the gray has touched your hair.

I've you're feeling lost and lonely just remember I love you.
Look for me, I'll be there.

Just remember all the happy times and always think of me
Look for me, I'll be there.
Like the waves upon the river ever flowing to the sea
Look for me, I'll be there.


I'll be with you in the morning and I'll be there every night
I'll be there when the gray has touched your hair.
I've you're feeling lost and lonely just remember I love you.
Look for me, I'll be there.

Randy Travis - Look Heart No Hands - # ONE - 1993
I remember how it used to feel
Riding down old two mile hill

Tennis shoes up on the handle bars
Paying no mind to the passing cars
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands

It took a little time to get up to speed
To find the confidence and strength I need
To just let go and reach for the sky
You Know sometimes it felt I could fly
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls

No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands
It doesn't take much, just a smile or a touch
And I'm a kid again, I can almost feel that wind
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls
No net, just you to catch me when I fall

Look heart, no hands
Look hear, no hands

Johnny Lee - Lookin' for Love - # ONE - 1980
Well, I've spent a lifetime lookin' for you;
singles bars and good time lovers were never true.
Playin' a fools game hopin' to win;
and tellin' those sweet lies and losin' again.

I was lookin' for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love in too many faces,
searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of.
Hopin' to find a friend and a lover;
I'll bless the day I discover

another heart lookin' for love.
And I was alone then, no love in sight;
and I did ev'rything I could to get me though the night.
Don't know where it started or where it might end;
I turned to a stranger just like a friend.
I was lookin' for love in all the wrong places,

Lookin' for love in too many faces,
searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of.
Hopin' to find a friend and a lover;
I'll bless the day I discover
another heart lookin' for love.

Then you came a knockin' at my heart's door;
You're ev'ry thing I've been lookin' for.
No more lookin' for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love in too many faces,
searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of.

Now that I've found a friend and a lover;
I bless the day that I discovered
you, oh you;
lookin' for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love in too many faces,
searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces

of what I'm dreamin' of.
Now that I've found a friend and a lover;
I bless the day that I discovered
you, oh you;
lookin' for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love in too many faces,

searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of.
Now that I've found a friend and a lover;
I bless the day that I discovered
you, oh you; lookin' for love

Justin Tubb & Goldie Hill - Looking Back To See - 1954
I was looking back to see
If you were looking back to see
If I was looking back to see
If you were looking back at me.


You were cute as you could be
Standing looking back at me
And it was plain to see
That I'd enjoy your company.

One Sunday afternoon

As I was ridin' down the street
I met a cute little girl
All dressed up so sweet.

And the way that she was stacked
I wish I'd've had a Cadillac
For who would notice me

Just drivin' this model T.

I was looking back to see
If you were looking back to see
If I was looking back to see
If you were looking back at me.

You were cute as you could be
Standing looking back at me
And it was plain to see
That I'd enjoy your company.

Now listen baby
It doesn't matter to me

Even in your model T
You're as cute as you can be.

If you'll come sit by my side
I will take for a ride
And I will guarantee
We'll have fun oh man alive


I was looking back to see
If you were looking back to see
If I was looking back to see
If you were looking back at me.

You were cute as you could be

Standing looking back at me
And it was plain to see
That I'd enjoy your company.

(Oh me, oh gee)
Perhaps you'd notice me
If I wadn't drivin' this model T.


So I was looking back to see
If you were looking back to see
If I was looking back to see
If you were looking back at me.

You were cute as you could be

Standing looking back at me
And it was plain to see
That I'd enjoy your company...

Carl Smith - Loose Talk - # ONE - 1955
So long we've been married

Life's burdens we carried
Though they kept us humble and made our love true
The plans that we make up
Someone seems to break up
Oh, darlin', what else can we do?
We may have to leave here

To find peace of mind, dear
Some place where we can live a life all our own
For I know you love me, and happy we could be
If some folks would leave us alone
While I go out walkin'
There's of loose talkin'

They say we're unhappy and we'll break apart
But, darlin', it's not true
Because I still love you
And I do with all my heart
We may have to leave here
To find peace of mind, dear

Some place where we can live a life all our own
For I know you love me, and happy we could be
If some folks would leave us alone
They say that you're leavin'
That you are deceiving
But you tell me they say the same about me

But we'll show them they're wrong
That loose talk will do harm
And hope that the truth they will see
We may have to leave here
To find peace of mind, dear
Some place where we can live a life all our own

For I know you love me, and happy we could be
If some folks would leave us alone

Close your eyes, baby
Follow my heart
Call on the memories
Here in the dark
We'll let the magic
Take us away

Back to the feelings
We shared when they played
In the still of the night
Hold me darlin', hold me tight, oh
So real, so right
Lost in the fifties tonight

These precious hours
We know can't survive
But love's all that matters
While the past is alive
Now and for always
Till time disappears

We'll hold each other
Whenever we hear
In the still of the night
Hold me darlin', hold me tight, say
So real, so right
Lost in the fifties tonight

Oh, so right, say
Oh, so real, so right
So real, so right

See your mama and the candles, and the tears and roses
I see your daddy walk his daughter down the isle
And my knees start to tremble as I tell the preacher
Don't she look beautiful tonight?

All the wonderful words in my head I've been thinking
Ya know I wanna say 'em all just right
I lift your veil and angels start singing
Such a heavenly sight
Lost in this moment with you
I am completely consumed

My feeling's so absolute
There's no doubt
Sealing our love with a kiss
Waited my whole life for this
Watching all my dreams come true
Lost in this moment with you

I smell the jasmine floating in the air like a love song
Watch my words draw sweet tears from your eyes
Bow our heads while the preacher talks to Jesus
Please bless this brand new life, yeah
Lost in this moment with you
I am completely consumed

My feeling's so absolute
There's no doubt
Sealing our love with a kiss
Waited my whole life for this
Watching all my dreams come true
Lost in this moment with you

Lost in this moment with you
I am completely consumed
My feeling's so absolute
There's no doubt
Sealing our love with a kiss
Waited my whole life for this

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
See the alligators all a waitin' nearby

Sooner or later they know I'm gonna try
When she waves from the bank don't you know I know
It's goodbye fishin' line, see you while ago
With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side
The Mississippi River don't look so wide.
Louisiana woman, Mississippi man

We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
Well, I thought I'd been loved but I never had
'Til I was wrapped in the arms of a Mississippi man

When he holds me close it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast
If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim
Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can

The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it's one mile wide
And I'm gotta get me to the other side
Mississippi man, I'm losin' my mind

Gotta have your loving one more time
I'm gonna jump in the river and here I go
Too bad alligator you swim too slow
Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart

There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart

JuddsLove Can Build A Bridge - 19911992 Grammy Song Of The Year
I'd gladly walk across the desert with no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you in your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinking, let me show you what love means
Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine

Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?
I would whisper love so loudly, every heart could understand
That love and only love can join the trials of man
I would give my hearts' desire so that you might see

The first step is to realize that it all begins with you and me
Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?

When we stand together, it's our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
Anything, anything
Keep believin' in the power
Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine

Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?
Yeah, yes I do
Oh, love can build a bridge
Whoa, love and only love

Between your heart and mine
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Love and only love
Don't you think it's time?
Oh, don't you think it's time?

Don't you think it's time?
Love and only love, yeah, love and only love

Shania Twain - Love Gets Me Every Time - # ONE - 1997
Life was goin' great
Love was gonna have to wait
Was in no hurry-had no worries
Stayin' single was the plan

Didn't need a steady man
I had it covered-'til I discovered
That love gets me every time
My heart changed my mind
I gol' darn gone and done it
Gone and done it (gone and done it)

Guess I fell in love (gone and done it)
Must've been the way he walked (gone and done it)
Or his sweet, sweet talk (gone and done it)
I guess I gol' darn gone and done it
I was quite content
Just a payin' my own rent

It was my place, I needed my space
I was free to shop around
In no rush to settle down
I had it covered, 'til I discovered
That love gets me every time
My heart changed my mind

I gol' darn gone and done it
Gone and done it (gone and done it)
Guess I fell in love (gone and done it)
Must've been the way he walked (gone and done it)
Or his sweet, sweet talk (gone and done it)
I guess I gol' darn gone and done it

Love gets me every time
My heart changed my mind
I gol' darn gone and done it
Gone and done it (gone and done it)
Guess I fell in love (gone and done it)
Must've been the way he walked (gone and done it)

Or his sweet, sweet talk (gone and done it)
It's in the way he calls my name (gone and done it)
I know I'll never be the same (gone and done it)
Don't you kno that love gets me every time
My heart changed my mind
I gol' darn gone and done it

Thought I had it covered
Life was going great
Well I gol' darn gone and done it

Alabama - Love In The First Degree - # ONE - 1981
I once thought of love as a prison
A place I didn't want to be.
So long ago, I made a decision
To be footloose and fancy-free.

But you came and I was so tempted
To gamble on love just one time.
I never thought that I would get caught.
It seemed like a perfect crime.
Baby, you left me defenseless,
But I've only got one plea.

Lock me away inside of your love,
And throw away the key.
I'm guilty, of love in the first degree.
I thought it would be so simple,
Like a thousand times before.
I'd take what I wanted and just walk away.

But I never made it to the door.
Now, babe I'm not begging for mercy.
Go ahead and throw the book at me.
If lovin' you's a crime,
I know that I'm as guilty as a man can be.
Baby, you left me defenseless.

But I've only got one plea.
Lock me away inside of your love,
And throw away the key.
I'm guilty, of love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree.
Oh yeah.

Oh yeah.
Baby, you left me defenseless.
But I've only got one plea.
Lock me away inside of your love,
And throw away the key.
I'm guilty, of love in the first degree.

Love in the first degree.
Oh yeah.
Love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree.
Oh yeah.
Love in the first degree.

Love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree...

Judds - Love Is Alive - # ONE
- 1985
Love ain't a candle
It doesn't burn for one night

And need the dark to shine
Love is alive
And love ain't just a word
In every dictionary
With no where defined
Love is a man and hes mine

Love is alive
And at our breakfast table
Everyday of the week
Love is alive
And it grows everyday and night
Even in our sleep

Love is alive
And its made a happy woman out of me
Oh, love is alive
And here by me
Love ain't just a mood
A distant far away dream

That needs the night to rise
Love is alive
And love ain't just a song
Sweet words of music
To go dancin' by
Love is a man and hes mine

Love is alive
And at our breakfast table
Everyday of the week
Love is alive
And it grows everyday and night
Even in our sleep

Love is alive
And its made a happy woman out of me
Oh, love is alive
And here by me
Love is alive, here by me

Dolly Parton - Love Is Like A Butterfly - # ONE - 1974
Love is like a butterfly as soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings

Love makes your heart feel strange inside it flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly a rare and gentle thing

I feel it when you're with me it happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies


Love is like a butterfly..

Your laughter brings me sunshine every day is springtime
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share how very precious sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies


Love is like a butterfly...
Love is like a butterfly a rare and gentle thing

Jan Howard - Love Is Like A Spinning Wheel - 1972
Love is like an ever spinning wheel round and round again round and round again
Though you'll finally find somebody new when love comes round again for you

Down the years many tears have been cried about love and devotion
Dry your tears love is just like the boat sailing over the ocean

Wheel of fortune keeps on turning love goes round like a carusel ride
Soon you'll find someone else by your side

Love is like an ever spinning wheel...
The wheel of fortune...
Love is like an ever spinning wheel...

Don Williams - Love Is on a Roll - # ONE
- 1983
I can't work late although I need the money

Gotta get home to my lovin honey
She'll be there waitin',
Waitin' impatiently
Love is on a roll, love is on a good roll.
Usually I meet with the boys on Friday
Only this mornin' she said 'this is my day

The look she gave me sent a shiver down into my soul
Love is on a roll love is on a good roll.
Our love is on a roll
Our love is on a good roll.
--- Instrumental ---
I'm a songwriter a professional dreamer

Mostly a singer but sometimes a screamer
I should know
If anybody knows at all
When love is on a roll
Love is on a good roll.
So I gotta go, I gotta get home early

Be with my woman, soft and curvy
Makes me feel like a king and not a regular Joe
Love is on a roll, love is on a good roll.
Love is on a roll, love is on a good roll.
Our love is on a roll
Our love is on a good roll

Our love is on a roll
Our love is on a good roll.
Love is on a roll, love is on a good roll.
Love is on a roll, love is on a good roll.

Loretta Lynn - Love Is the Foundation - # ONE - 1973
I've seen him as he awakens in the morning
He reaches out his hand and without a word
As his fingers softly fall upon my face

He lights the flame of desire and makes me want him.
Love is the foundation we lean on and all you need is love to ease your mind.
It doesn't have to be right to be called love
When he gives me more lovin' that a lifetime of looking could ever find.

Collin Raye - Love Me - # ONE - ZZZ
I read a note my grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, Boy, you might not understand
But a long, long time ago
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none
But I loved your grandma so


We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to, and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter, and this Is what it said

If you get there before I do, don't give up on me

I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be
But I'm not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
And between now and then, 'til I see you again
I'll be loving you
Love, me

I read those words just hours before
My grandma passed away
In the doorway of a church
Where me and grandpa stopped to pray
I know I'd never seen him cry In all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her

His eyes filled up with tears

If you get there before I do, don't give up on me I'll meet you when my chores are through

I don't know how long I'll be But I'm not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
And between now and then, 'til I see you again I'll be loving you Love, me
Between now and then, 'til I see you again I'll be loving you Love, me

Likely as not, there's been better weather
I feel real sure there's been better times.
Right here tonight, with you all around me
I'm so glad right now is mine.

So honey, tonight, make it alright.
Turn on your smile for me for a while
Take me away from where I have been.
I know you love me,
But love me over again.
You have the way of filling my emotions

Till there's not a word left in my mind.
Times get so hard, so confusing
You make now a so-much better time.
So honey, tonight, make it alright.
Turn on your smile for me for a while
Take me away from where I have been.

I know you love me,
But love me over again.
So honey, tonight, make it alright.
Turn on your smile for me for a while
Take me away from where I have been.
I know you love me,

But love me over again.

You want back in my arms P.D.Q.

I don't brag about you to everyone I meet
I don't sing you're praises in a crowd
Oh but deep inside my heart you're the most important part
Oh I'm just no good at love out loud

And when you're here beside me being in my arms
Well I can't seem to get my feelings out
I know that you deserve the tender-est of words
But I'm just no good at love out loud
Love out loud it don't come easy, love out loud it?s hard for me
Deep inside my heart is singing and resiting poetry

Please don't read my silence as a cause for any doubt
I'm just no good at love out loud
Yeah there's some real good talkers I hear them everyday
But I'm not sure they know what's love about
Oh but everything thing I do is a sign of I love you
And I'm just no good at love out loud

Love out loud it don't come easy, love out loud it?s hard for me
Deep inside my heart is singing and resiting poetry
Please don't read my silence as a cause for any doubt
I'm just no good at love; I'm just no good at love
I'm just no good at love out loud
Love out loud, Love out loud

Yes your love put a song, put a song, put a song, in my heart
Never have I had this beautiful feeling before
Yes your love put a song, put a song, put a song, in my
A beautiful song of two people in love evermore
It wasn't too long ago
I thought I would never know

What reason has anyone
To sing a happy song
I knew only loneliness
But then I found happiness
And now I just want to hold
This time and sing along

'Cause your love put a song, put a song, put a song, in my heart
Never have I heard this beautiful music before
Yes your love put a song, put a song, put a song, in my heart
A beautiful song of two people in love evermore
Never have I heard this beautiful music before
A beautiful song of two people in love evermore

Yes your love put a song, put a song, put a song, in my heart
Never have I heard this beautiful music before........fades

Tell you why I called on you
This is what we're going to do
Take this lovely gift of love
Sent to us from Heaven above

I said, baby I think that
We can help each other see (oh yeah)
We'd make this life that we're living seem
More like it's supposed to be
Well every man should have a good woman
Every woman should have a good man

Won't you stand along beside me
Let me do the best I can
Take each other's heart in hand.
I want to sing just a little love song
I want to sing for a little while
Back up and toe the line for you

I want to be your all in all.
Bless you babe, I love you so
Love from whom all blessings flow
Me to you and you to me
This is how it's going to be
I said baby we're gonna know the joy

the years can bring (oh yeah)
And every time I think about it
I just want to lift my heart
And sing (on more time)
Every man should have a good woman
Every woman should have a good man

Won't you stand along beside me
Let me do the best I can
Take each other's heart in hand.
Bless you babe, I love you so
Love from whom all blessings flow
Me to you and you to me

This is how it's going to be

Taylor Swift - Love Story - # ONE - 2008
We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes, and the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd

And say, Hello
Little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said, Stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, Please don't go, and I said

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say Yes
So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if they knew

So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while
'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said, Stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don't go and I said

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say Yes
Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real

Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say Yes
Oh, oh
I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading

When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said
Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said Marry me Juliet

You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say 'Yes'
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Because we were both young when I first saw you

Help me Doc there's something wrong
I can't shake it it's gone too far
He said tell me what your symptoms are

I said my hands are sweaty and my knees are weak
I can't eat and I can't sleep
It's turning me every way but loose
He said it sounds like love's got a hold on you
No doubt love's got a hold on you
I told my buddies I was settlin' down

No more of this running 'round
They looked at me like I was a fool
And said come on tell us what's wrong with you
I said my hands are sweaty and my knees are weak
I can't eat and I can't sleep
It's turning me every way but loose

He said it sounds like love's got a hold on you
No doubt love's got a hold on you
Well I tossed and turned til the morning light
Holding my pillow hanging on for life
There ain't nothing I can do
They said it sounds like love's got a hold on you

Sounds like love's got a hold on you
My hands are sweaty and my knees are weak
I can't eat and I can't sleep
It's turning me every way but loose
He said it sounds like love's got a hold on you
Sounds like love's got a hold on you

Sounds like love's got a hold on you
No doubt love's got a hold on you

I'm in love,
I'm in love,
I'm in love with a girl,
That's what's the matter with me
I'm in love,

I'm in love, with a beautiful girl,
But she don't give a darn about me
to make her love me I tried,
How I sighed and I cried
But she just refused
And ever since she's gone away,

I've got those lovesick blues
Got the feeling called the blue hoo's,
since my sweetie said Good Bye
Seems I don't know what to Do Hoo
All day long I sit and cry
That last long day we spent alone

I'm yearning for it yet
She thrilled me, filled me,
with a kind of lovin',
I never will forget, the way she called me sweet daddy
Twas just a beautiful dream
I hate to think that it's all over I lost my heart it seems

I got so used to her somehow
But I'm no body's baby
Now, gee it's awful when you're lonesome
and get those lovesick blue-oo-oo-oo-oo's
Got the feeling called the blue hoo's,
since my sweetie said Good Bye

Seems I don't know what to Do Hoo
All day long I sit and cry
That last long day we spent alone
I'm yearning for it yet
She thrilled me, filled me,
with a kind of lovin',

I never will forget, the way she called me sweet daddy
Twas just a beautiful dream
I hate to think that it's all over I lost my heart it seems

Well lord I thought I would cry

She'll do me, she'll do you

Well I'm in love I'm in love with a beautiful gal
That's what's the matter with me

Well I'm in love I'm in love with a beautiful gal
But she don't care about me
Lord I tried and tried to keep her satisfied
But she just wouldn't stay
So now that she is leavin'
This is all I can say:

I got a feelin' called the blues- oh lord
Since my baby said goodbye

Tompall And The Glaser Brothers - Lovin' Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again) - 1981
I've seen the morning burning golden on the mountains in the skies
Aching with the feeling of the freedom of an eagle when she flies
Turning on the world the way she smiles upon my soul as I lay dying

Healing with the colors of the sunshine and the shadow of her eyes

Waking in the morning to the feeling of her fingers on my skin
Wiping out the traces of the people and the places that I've been
Teaching me that yesterday was something that I never thought of trying
Talking of tomorrow and the money love and time we'd have to spend
Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again


Coming close together with a feeling that I've never know before in my time
She ain't ashamed to be a woman or afraid to be a friend
I don't know the answer to the easy way she opens every door in my mind
Dreaming was as easy as believing it was never gonna end
Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again
Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again

I have days where I hate my job
This little town, and the whole world too
Last Sunday when the Bengals lost
Lord, it put me in a bad mood
I have moments when I curse the rain
Then complain when the sun's too hot

I look around at what everyone has
And I forget about all I've got
But I know I'm a lucky man
God's given me a pretty fair hand
Got a house and a piece of land
A few dollars in a coffee can

My old truck's still running good
My ticker's ticking like they say it should
I got supper in the oven, a good woman's loving
And one more day to be my little kid's dad
Lord, knows I'm a lucky man
Got some friends who would be here fast

I could call 'em any time of day
Got a brother who's got my back
Got a mama who I swear's a saint
Got a brand new rod and reel
Got a full week off this year
Dad had a close call last spring

It's a miracle he's still here
But I know I'm a lucky man
God's given me a pretty fair hand
Got a house and a piece of land
A few dollars in a coffee can
My old truck's still running good

My ticker's ticking like they say it should
I got supper in the oven, a good woman's loving
And one more day to be my little kid's dad
Lord, knows I'm a lucky man
My old truck's still running good
My ticker's ticking like they say it should

I got supper in the oven, a good woman's loving
And even my bad days ain't that bad
Yeah, I'm a lucky man
I'm a lucky lucky man

Crystal Gayle & Gary Morris - Makin' Up For Lost Time (The Dallas Lovers' Song) - # ONE - 1986
I see you standing by the light in the window of my bedroom
That old moon has never shined as bright as it's shining now on you
I see a new star in the heavens for us tonight
I've been waiting for you most of my life
Now that we're together and we're where we belong
I can't help but wonder why, why did it take so long
Sometimes it takes too much time to find the right one to say
I wanna make you mine, I wanna make you mine
Be with you all the time
And be the only light in your eyes that ever shines
Sometimes it takes too many roads to reach the right one to say
Here's where I wanna be, oh, what you mean to me
When we're making love
I'll spend the rest of my life with you making up for lost time
Making up, making up for lost time
I turn around and get lost in the look that you give to me
I drift away when I hear you say you've only lived to find me
Darling, let me hold you in my arms, darling, oh, so tight
I've been waiting for you most of my life
Now that we're together and we're where we belong
I can't help but wonder why, why did it take so long
Sometimes it takes too much time to find the right one to say
I wanna make you mine, I wanna make you mine
Be with you all the time
And be the only light in your eyes that ever shines
Sometimes it takes too many roads to reach the right one to say
Here's where I wanna be, oh, what you mean to me
When we're making love
I'll spend the rest of my life with you making up for lost time
Making up, making up for lost time
We never spent together, lost time
Better late than never, lost time
You know we'll be everyday
Making up, making up for lost time
We never spent together, lost time
Better late than never, lost time
We never spent together, lost time

Judds - Mama He's Crazy - # ONE - 1984
Mama, I found someone
Like you said would come along
He's a sight, so unlike
Any man I've known
I was afraid to let him in
'Cause I'm not the trustin' kind
But now I'm convinced that he's heaven sent
And must be out of his mind
Mama, he's crazy, crazy over me
And in my life is where he says
He always wants to be
I've never been so in love
He beats all I've ever seen
Mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me
And, Mama, you've always said
Better look before you leap
Maybe so, but here I go
Lettin' my heart lead me
He thinks I hung the moon and stars
I think he's a livin' dream
Well, there are men, but ones like him
Are few and far between
Mama, he's crazy, crazy over me
And in my life is where he says
He always wants to be
I've never been so in love
He beats all I've ever seen
Mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me
Oh Mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me

Forester Sisters - Mama's Never Seen Those Eyes - # ONE - 1986
Mama says I shouldn't be going with you, mama says she knows best
You'll take my heart and break it in
two, cause you're just like all the rest
She says that you're just a one-night man and you'll end up hurting me
Aw but I've seen something that mama ain't ever seen
Mama's never looked into those eyes felt the way that they hypnotize
She don't know how they make me feel inside
If mama ever knew what they do to me I think she'd be surprised
Aw but mama's never seen those eyes, mama's never seen those eyes
Mama says that I shouldn't let you
steal a kiss Mama says it just ain't right
She don't know that I can't resist with the moon so big and bright
She says I'll find a love some day but you're just not the one
Aw I've done something that mama ain't ever done
Mama's never looked into those eyes felt the way that they hypnotize
She don't know how they make me feel inside
If mama ever knew what they do to me I think she'd be surprised
Aw but mama's never seen those eyes, mama's never seen those eyes
Mama's never looked into those eyes felt the way that they hypnotize
She don't know how they make me feel inside
If mama ever knew what they do to me I think she'd be surprised
Aw but mama's never seen those eyes, mama's never seen those eyes

Judds - Maybe Your Baby's Got The Blues - # ONE - 1987
If you hear her cry at night
Better turn on your light
Maybe your baby's got the blues
When she says there's nothing wrong
She just wants to be alone
You can bet your baby's got the blues
Women like men to make the first move
And touch her like he used to
When there's achin' in her heart
Only tenderness can find
Women like men to make them feel alive
And keep her apron strings untied
Yes women like men
To love them through the blues sometime
When her days all run the same
And she says she thinks she needs a change
Maybe your baby's got the blues
If she says she's just a wife
And so far from the glamorous life
You can bet your baby's got the blues
Women like men to make the first move
And touch her like he used to
When there's achin' in her heart
Only tenderness can find
Women like men to make them feel alive
And keep her apron strings untied
Yes women like men
To love them through the blues sometime
Yes, women like men to love them through the blues sometimes

Toby Keith - Me Too - # ONE - 1997
If I send you roses for no reason at all
If, out of the blue, I stop and give you a call
Once in a while, it's breakfast in bed
And then pull the covers back up over our heads
If I call in sick just to stay home with you
I want you to know why I do what I do
It's my way of saying what I can't express
But I want you to know, girl, I'm doing my best
Oh, I'm just a man, that's the way I was made
I'm not too good at saying what you need me to say
It's always right there on the tip of my tongue
It might go unsaid, but it won't go undone
So when those three little words come so easy to you
I hope you know what I mean when I say, me too
If you should wake up and catch me watching you sleep
And I break the silence by kissing your cheek
If I whisper something you don't understand
Don't make me repeat it, I don't know if I can
Me too, me too, hope you know what I mean when I say
Me too, me too

Diamond Rio - Meet In The Middle - # ONE - 1991
It was seven hundred fenceposts from your place to ours
Neither one of us was old enough to drive a car
Sometimes it was raining, sometimes it would shine
We wore out that gravel road between your house and mine
I'd start walking your way
You'd start walking mine
We'd meet in the middle
'Neath that old Georgia pine
We'd gain a lot of ground
'Cause we'd both give a little
And their ain't no road to long
When you meet in the middle
It's been seven years tomorrow since we said our vows
Under that old pine tree, you ought to see it now
Standing in the back yard reminding me and you
That if we don't see eye to eye there's something we can do
I'd start walking your way
You'd start walking mine
We'd meet in the middle
'Neath that old Georgia pine
We'd gain a lot of ground
'Cause we'd both give a little
And their ain't no road to long
When you meet in the middle
Babe I love the way we work it out
That's what love's about
I'd start walking your way
You'd start walking mine
We'd meet in the middle
'Neath that old Georgia pine
We'd gain a lot of ground
'Cause we'd both give a little
And their ain't no road to long
When you meet in the middle
I'd start walking your way
You'd start walking mine
We'd meet in the middle
'Neath that old Georgia pine
We'd gain a lot of ground
'Cause we'd both give a little
And their ain't no road to long
When you meet in the middle
I'd start walking your way
You'd start walking mine
We'd meet in the middle

We'd gain a lot of ground
'Cause we'd both give a little

Marie Osmond & Dan Seals - Meet Me In Montana - # ONE - 1985
Wrote my whole life down in an old book,
Songs about you and me.
Been singing to every soul in Tennessee.
Nobody seems to listen,
No one ever smiles the way that you do.
So I guess you never hear me on the radio,
And I'd give up this crazy dream of mine to hold you once more.
Won't you meet me in Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.
I left home for Hollywood.
Lookin' for a part to play.
Well you always said I had such a pretty face.
But, I guess I'm not that pretty,
'Cause no one looks at me the way you do.
Well you'll always be a movie star to me.
Darlin' now I guess it's time that I let go of that dream.
Won't you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.
Well were stuck here in these hills that they call mountains.
Darlin' back home in your arms is right where I want to be.
Won't you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.
In Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life that I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

John Anderson - Money In The Bank - # ONE - 1993
It's Friday night, baby, get ready, set, go
Gonna take you to the Crystal and a picture show
Well, the sky's the limit, there's no price too high
Baby, you're the apple of my eye
Got my paycheck in my pocket and some gas in the tank
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank
I wish I had a bass boat and a Z-28
But I guess that stuff'll have to wait
Cause I'm saving on a washer and a wedding ring
I want this love to be a lasting thing
Right at the top, that's where you rank
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank
Oh, oh, you make me feel like a million bucks
Oh, oh, I oughta drive you around in an armored truck
Late last night, I had a crazy dream
I met a man who invented a money machine
He said I know things are tight and times are tough
But he'd give me the machine if I'd give you up
I just looked him in the eye and I said no thanks
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank

Charley Pride - More To Me - # ONE - 1977
Yes more to me than anything else I've ever known
More to me than anything else I'm ever gonna see
Just your love is all that I need to depend upon
And each day that passes by you're more to me
When I'm gone away thoughts of you keep a runnin' through my mind
Like a sunny day I can feel your warm sweet love light shinin' all over me
Till I'm back in your arms again
And every time I find the feelin's stronger than it's ever been
Yes more to me
'Til my life is through you're the one that I'll be livin' for
Every day with you I just seem to need you even more
And I want to say that I never thought I'd see
Anyone like you who cares so much for someone else like me
Cause more to me
And each day that passes by you're more to me

Lee Greenwood - Mornin' Ride - # ONE - 1987
There's a quiet time in the early dawn
Before the mornin' paper, before the coffee's on
There ain't much movin' in the world outside
Oh, I'd love to take a mornin' ride
My baby knows, it's the time we share
She wakes me gently and brushes back her hair
And she moves into my arms, sweet and slow
I can't wait to get up and go
Gonna take my baby on a mornin' ride
When the sun comes slippin' 'round the mountain side
'Bout an hour, maybe two
Ain't nothin' me and her would rather do
Than see the green grass glist'nin' in the mornin' dew
While the world is still damn spankin' new
Oh, I know how beautiful the day will be
When she takes a mornin' ride with me
And when we get back, it will feel so right
To just lay back and linger in the mornin' light
Then she'll smile at me, thinkin' where we've been
Wantin' me to take her again
I'm gonna take my baby on a mornin' ride
When the sun comes slippin' 'round the mountain side
'Bout an hour, maybe two
Ain't nothin' me and her would rather do
Than see the green grass glist'nin' in the mornin' dew
While the world is still damn spankin' new
Oh, I know how beautiful the day will be
When she takes a mornin' ride with me
Oh, I'm gonna take my baby on a mornin' ride
When the sun comes slippin' 'round the mountain side
'Bout an hour, maybe two

Kenny Rogers - Morning Desire - # ONE - 1986
Here it is seven in the a.m.
It's gonna take more then wakin' to rise me
I wake up with this need again
But feel the love of the woman beside me
It's just one of those days
When I wanna lay here with her
And love her before I leave
And listen to the rain fall on the roof
And the thunder sounds like horses hooves
Oh, I listen to her breathe
And it makes me wanna wake her up
And tell her that I'm on fire
With morning desire
It looks like I'm gonna be late again
And I gonna give up and get movin' and I'm tryin'
But the longer I keep stalling
The more I think about callin' in and lying
It's just one of those days
When I wanna stay here with her
And watch her while she sleeps
And listen to the rain fall on the roof
And the thunder sounds like horses hooves
Oh, I listen to her breathe
And it makes me wanna wake her up
And tell her that I'm on fire
With morning desire
Well, I love to hear the rain fallin' on the roof
And the thunder sounds like horses hooves
Oh, I listen to her breathe
And it makes me wanna wake her up
And tell her that I'm on fire
With morning desire, with morning desire
Listen to the rain
Listen to the rain
Listen to the rain

Charlie Rich - The Most Beautiful Girl (In The World) - # ONE - 1973
Hey, did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world?
And if you did, was she crying, crying?
Hey, if you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me
Tell her I'm sorry
Tell her I need my baby
Oh won't you tell her, that I love her
I woke up this morning, realized what I had done
I stood alone in the cold gray dawn
I knew I'd lost my morning sun
I lost my head and I said some things
Now comes the heartaches that the morning brings
I know I'm wrong and I couldn't see
I let my world slip away from me
So, hey, did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world?
And if you did, was she crying, crying?
Hey, if you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me
Tell her I'm sorry
Tell her I need my baby
Oh, won't you tell her that I love her
If you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me
Tell her I'm sorry
Tell her I need my baby
Oh, won't you tell her that I love her

Brad Paisley - Mud On The Tires - # ONE - 2005
I've got some big news
The bank finally came through
And I'm holdin' the keys to a brand new Chevrolet
Have you been outside, it sure is a nice night
How about a little test drive
Down by the lake?
There's a place I know about where the dirt road runs out
And we can try out the four-wheel drive
Come on now what do you say
Girl, I can hardly wait to get a little mud on the tires.
'Cause it's a good night
To be out there soakin' up the moonlight
Stake out a little piece of shore line
I've got the perfect place in mind.
It's in the middle of nowhere, only one way to get there
You got to get a little mud on the tires.
Moonlight on a duck blind
Catfish on a trot line
Sun sets about nine this time of year
We can throw a blanket down
Crickets singin' in the background
And more stars that you can count on a night this clear.
I tell you what we need to do
Is grab a sleepin' bag or two
And build us a little campfire
And then with a little luck we might just get stuck
Let's get a little mud on the tires.
'Cause it's a good night
To be out there soakin' up the moonlight
Stake out a little piece of shore line
I've got the perfect place in mind.
It's in the middle of nowhere, only one way to get there
You got to get a little mud on the tires.
And then with a little luck we might just get stuck
Let's get a little mud on the tires

Billy Currington - Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right - # ONE - 2005
A woman is a mystery a man just can't understand
Sometimes all it takes to please her is a touch of your hand
And other times you've gotta take it slow and hold her all night long
Heaven knows there's so many ways a man can go wrong
I must be doin' something right
I just heard you sigh
You leaned into my kiss and closed those deep blue need you eyes
Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
Must be doin' something right
Anywhere you wanna go, baby, show me the way
I'm open to suggestions, umm, whatever you say
Tonight's about giving you what you want whatever it takes
Girl, I hope I'm on the right road, but judging by the smile on your face
I must be doin' something right
I just heard you sigh
You leaned into my kiss and closed those deep blue need you eyes
Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
Must be doin' something right
Don't know what I did to earn a love like this, but baby I
Must be doin' something right
Must be doin' something right
Must be doin' something right

She rose out of bed, wipes the sleep out of her eyes
I know she's bound to be tired, but she looks so satisfied
We stayed up a little late last night
I guess I must be doing something right
My baby's got a smile on her face
My baby's got a smile on her face, oh yeah
As soon as I get to work I call her on the phone
I wanna tell her that I love her, I can't wait til I get home
She doesn't say a word when I walk in
Looks like we might not get much sleep again
'Cause my baby's got a smile on her face
My baby's got a smile on her face (Every time we get together)
My baby's got a smile on her face, yeah I wanna make a life together
My baby's got a smile on her, just look at 'er, gotta look at her
Take a look at that smile on her face

I never had no one that I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin' so tired of searchin'
Til you walked into my life
It was a feelin' I'd never known
And for the first time I didn't feel alone
You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend
You stand by me you believe in me
Like nobody ever has
When my world goes crazy
You're right there to save me
You make me see how much I have
And I still tremble when we touch
And oh the look in your eyes
When we make love
You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
And I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend
You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
And oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
And I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense

David Houston & Tammy Wynette - My Elusive Dreams - # ONE - 1967
I followed you to Texas
I followed you to Utah
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
I followed you to Alabama
Things looked good in Birmingham
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
I had your child in Memphis
You heard of work in Nashville
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
To a small farm in Nebraska
To a gold mine in Alaska
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
And now we've left Alaska
Because there was no go-old mine
But this time, only two of us moves on
Now all we have is each other
And a little memory to cling to
And still you won't let me go on alone
I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams

For my eyes can only see as far as you
My heart is set on loving you forever
And your love is strong enough to see me through
It'll keep me holding on to you forever
Cause my eyes can only see as far as you
It'll keep me holding on to you forever
Cause my eyes can only see as far as you
Yes, my eyes can only see as far as you

Merle Haggard - My Favorite Memory - # ONE - 1981
First time we met is a favorite memory of mine
They say time changes all it pertains to
But your memory is stronger than time
I guess everything does change except what you choose to recall
There's a million good daydreams to dream on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all
Like the night we made love in the hallway
And slept all night long on the floor
Like the winter we spent on Lake Shasta alone and closer than ever before
And I remember that London vacation
It was you made the whole thing a ball
There's a million good times I could dwell on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all
First time we met is a favorite memory of mine
They say time changes all it pertains to
But your memory is stronger than time
I guess everything does change except what you choose to recall
There's a million good daydreams to dream on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all

Lonestar - My Front Porch Looking In - # ONE - 2003
Oh yeah
Yeah oh yeah
The only ground I ever owned was sticking to my shoes
Now I look at my front porch and this panoramic view
I can sit and watch the fields fill up
With rays of glowing sun
Or watch the moon lay on the fences
Like that's where it was hung
My blessings are in front of me
It's not about the land
I'll never beat the view
From my front porch looking in
There's a carrot top who can barely walk
With a sippy cup of milk
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong
'Cause she likes to dress herself
And the most beautiful girl holding both of them
And the view I love the most
Is my front porch looking in, yeah
I've traveled here and everywhere
Following my job
I've seen the paintings from the air
Brushed by the hand of God
The mountains and the canyons reach from sea to shining sea
But I can't wait to get back home
To the one he made for me
It's anywhere I'll ever go and everywhere I've been
Nothing takes my breath away
Like my front porch looking in
There's a carrot top who can barely walk
With a sippy cup of milk
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong
'Cause she likes to dress herself
And the most beautiful girl holding both of them
Yeah the view I love the most
Is my front porch looking in
I see what beautiful is about
When I'm looking in
Not when I'm looking out
There's a carrot top who can barely walk
With a sippy cup of milk
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong
'Cause she likes to dress herself
And the most beautiful girl holding both of them
Yeah the view I love the most
Oh, the view I love the most
Is my front porch looking in
Yeah
Oh, there's a carrot top who can barely walk
(From my front porch looking in)
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong, yeah
And the most beautiful girl
(Beautiful girl
From my front porch looking in)

Holding both of them
Oh, yeah

The wanting, the craving, the needing
Keeps my world from crawling through
Everybody's got one baby my hang-up is you
I've hung up all the thrills I feel when I hold you in my arms
I'm hung up because I need your love
To wrap around and keep me warm
You're my little piece of heaven
You're all I've got to hang on to
Everybody's got one baby my hang up is you
Everybody's got one baby my hang up is you

Buck Owens - My Heart Skips A Beat - # ONE - 1964
Oh my heart skips a beat when we walk down the street I feel a trembling in my knees
And just to know you're mine until the end of time makes my heart skip a beat
Well I did a double take the day I met you
My heart turned a flip as I stood next to you
And I knew right there I never could forget you
For you are my every dream come true
And my heart skips a beat
You came into my life without a warning
And you turned my cloudy skies from grey to blue
You're my sunshine that comes up every morning
Yes you are my every dream come true
And my heart skips a beat

Collin Raye - My Kind Of Girl - # ONE - 1995

When I saw you buyin' Cosmo and a Hot Rod magazine
I said to myself now there's a girl for me
And when I asked you to go for a ride
You stole my heart when you said if I can drive
I said how bout some music you said you got any Merle
That's when I knew you were my kind of girl
And when we started talking I could not believe my ears
You said you were a Braves fan even through the rotten years
You quoted William Faulkner and Martin Luther King
You said your favorite movie star would always be James Dean
And when we went to dinner you wore blue jeans with your pearls
That's when I knew you were my kind of girl
You march to the beat of a different drum
The funny thing is that I hear the same one
We both like to color outside of the lines
We're peas in a pod girl we're two of a kind
Yeah you march to the beat of a different drum
I said I think I love you you said what's not to love
I thought about a kiss but I wasn't quick enough
I guess while I was thinkin' you were readin' my mind
Cause you wrapped your arms around me and you pressed your lips to mine
You sent my head a spinnin just like a tilt-a-whirl
That's when I knew you were my kind of girl
You sent my head a spinning just like a tilt-a-whirl
That's when I knew you were my kind of girl
(My kind my kind of girl my kind my kind of girl)

Little Texas - My Love - # ONE - 1994
Get on your mark, get set
Ready or not here I come
You've been looking for love
Well honey, I can give you some
When your world is standing still
I can turn it around
Put your head up in the clouds
And pick your feet off the ground

[Chorus:]
My love
Are you ready for my love, my love
My love, my love is ready for you.
If you're looking for a heart that's always true
Only to you, then my love
My love, my love is ready for you.

Girl, I've heard it said
that love is good for the soul
I see the hunger in your eyes
Burning out of control
My love is overflowing from a loving cup
Girl, I know you're down
but love will lift you up.

[Chorus]

My love is overflowing from a loving cup
Girl, I know your're down
But love will lift you up

[Chorus]

My love, my love is ready for you... [x2]

Sonny James - My Love - 1970
My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine softer than a sigh
My love is deeper than the deepest ocean wider than the sky
My love is brighter than the brightest star that shines every night above
And there is nothing in this world that could ever change my love
Something happened to my heart the day that I met you
Something that I never felt before
You are always on my mind no matter what I do
And every day it seems I want you more
My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine softer than a sigh
My love is deeper than the deepest ocean wider than the sky
My love is brighter than the brightest star that shines every night above
And there is nothing in this world that could ever change my love
Once I thought that love was meant for anyone else but me
Once I thought you'd never come my way
Now it only goes to show how wrong we all can be
For now I have to tell you every day
My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine softer than a sigh
My love is deeper than the deepest ocean wider than the sky
My love is brighter than the brightest star that shines every night above
And there is nothing in this world that could ever change my love

Tammy Wynette - My Man (Understands) - # ONE - 1972
My man, understands
He holds me in the palm of his hand
And I like it, I-I like it
He's a dream, the real thing
He always makes me feel like a queen
And I love it, I love it
His arms, are warm
They keep me away from harm
And I'm proud of it, so proud of it
He's mine, he's fine
He makes a funny feelin' go up my spine
And I want to keep it like this all the time
He's got what I wa-ant when I want it
He's got what I nee-eed when I nee-eed it
I'd part a million just to keep it
Just to keep on holdin' to the precious love he gives me
How I hate to sit and wait
When I know he's about to work late, I can't stand it, can't stand it
But when, he walks in and I'm in his a-lovin arms again
I forget it, I forget it
He's touch is too much
He knows how to love me just enough
And I love him, I-I love him
My man, understands
He hold me in the palm of his hand
And I want to keep it like this all the time
He's got what I wa-ant when I want it
He's got what I nee-eed when I nee-eed it
I'd part a million just to keep it
Just to keep on holdin' to the precious love he gives me
Uh my man, understands
He hold me in the palm of his hand
And I want to keep it like this all the time
Yeah I want to keep it like this a-all the time

Brooks & Dunn - My Maria - # ONE - 1996
My Maria don't you know I've come a long, long way
I been longin' to see her
When she's around she takes my blues away
Sweet Maria the sunlight surely hurts my eyes
I'm a lonely dreamer on a highway in the skies
Maria, (Oh Maria I love you girl, oh my Maria)
Maria, (Oh Maria I love you girl, Maria) I love you
My Maria there were some blue and sorrow times
Just my thoughts about you bring back my piece of mind
Gypsy lady you're a miracle work for me
You set my soul free like a ship sailing on the sea
She is the sunlight when skies are gray
She treats me so right lady take me away
My Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, oh my Maria)
Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, Maria) I love you
My Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, oh my Maria)
Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, Maria) I love you
My Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, oh my Maria)
Maria (Oh Maria I love you girl, Maria) I love you

Stuart Hamblen - My Mary - ZZZ
I take a trip in the evening, journey down memory lane
Strolling along those familiar paths, living those days again
I can always see my sweetheart, dressed as she used to be
Waiting for someone by the garden gate, and I know that someone is me

Big brown eyes and curly hair
Now can't you tell that's Mary?
Rosy cheeks and ruby lips
Oh, can't you tell that's Mary?

Ofttimes in the evening we'd go strolling
Hand in hand together beneath the pepper tree
And 1 can feel her hand in mine as I sit alone tonight
Just a-dreaming of the hours I spent with Mary

Recitation:
Oh gee, wouldn't it be wonderful to open up the doors of the past and live again as in yesterday?
But you know, no matter where I wander, no matter where I roam, there'll always be a place in my heart, boys, for a girl 'way back, for a girl I used to call Mary.

Statler Brothers - My Only Love - # ONE - 1985
You and I were meant for one another
Today will join our hearts eternally
And this moment I'll always remember
All the words that mean so much to me
And you're my only love
My only love
And I just thank the Lord above
For you each day
I can't believe the way I feel
You're so special
You're so real
And I know you'll always be
My only love
Listen closely to the words I'm saying
I know I never meant them more
For your love only, I've been prayin'
You and I are what this love is for
And you're my only love
My only love
And I just thank the Lord above
For you each day
I can't believe the way I feel
You're so special
You're so real
And I know you'll always be
My only love
I know you'll always be
My only love

You are my special angel
Sent from up above
The Lord smiled down on me
And sent an angel to love (to love)
You are my special angel
Right from paradise
I know you're an angel
Heaven is in your eyes
The smile from your lips brings the summer sunshine
Tears from your eyes bring the rain
I feel your touch, your warm embrace
And I'm in heaven again
You are my special angel
Through eternity
I'll have my special angel
Here to watch over me
I feel your touch, your warm embrace
And I'm in heaven again
You are my special angel
Through eternity
I'll have my special angel
Here to watch over me (watch over me)
Here to watch over me
(Angel, angel, whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh oh, oh)

You stayed with me through thick and thin
You watched me lose, you watched me win
You picked me up off of the ground
You never one time let me down
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly
I was drowning in the sea of make believe
As helpless as a falling leaf
You gave your hand to me that day
And you did it, 'cause you're made that way
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly
You always seem to let your feelings show
You love me and you let me know
Darling, just remember these three words
I love you, I love you
And you put me on a natural high
And I fly, I can fly
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly

There's just one place for me
Near you
It's like heaven to be
Near you
Times when we're apart
And I can't face my heart
Say you'll never stay
More than just two lips away
If my hours could be spent
Near you
I'd be more than content
Near you
Make my life worthwhile
By telling me that I'll
Spend the rest of my days
Near you
Near you
Near you
Make my life worth while
By telling me that I'll
Spend the rest of my days
Near you
Spend the rest of my days
Near you

I'm no stranger to loving arms
Well, I'm accustomed to lady's charms
You know that I didn't just arrive into town
You might say that I've been around
I've seen the fighter in lover's eyes
I've seen the lost pay in my time
I didn't think that there was much I'd missed
But let me tell you this
I've never been so loved in all my love
I've never felt the way I feel tonight
You came along and made my world turn bright
I've never loved like this before
I've never been so loved in all my love
I want forever to be like tonight
I'm going to need you 'til the day I die
I've never been so loved in all my love
Ain't it amazing, you're naturally fine
You've got a hold on this heart of mine
And I don't want you to ever let go
Hell, I just want you to know
I've never been so loved in all my love
I've never felt the way I feel tonight
You came along and made my world turn bright
I've never loved like this before
I've never been so loved in all my love
I want forever to be like tonight
I'm going to need you 'til the day I die
I've never been so loved in all my love
I've never been so loved in all my love
I've never felt the way I feel tonight
You came along and made my world turn bright
I've never loved like this before (fade)

From the first time we met
I knew I'd have a never ending love for you
I've got a never ending love for you
From now on, that's all I want to do

After all this time of being alone
We can love on another
Feel for each other from now on
Feels so good I can hardly stand it
I've got a never ending love for you
From now on, that's all I want to do
From the first time we met, I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love to you
I've got a never ending love for you

Kenny Chesney - Never Wanted Nothing More - # ONE - 2007
I couldn't wait to turn sixteen
And drive all the boys around
Foot on the gas and hands on the wheel
Was all I could think about
A little rust in the bed of that truck
And a four speed on the floor
Five hundred dollars
It was mine all mine
And I never wanted nothing more
I took Katie down by the river
With a six dollar bottle of wine
Just a fool tryin' to play it cool
Hopin' she'd let me cross the line
And I was prayin' that she couldn't tell
I'd never been that far before
The first time's a one time feeling
And I never wanted nothin' more
No I never wanted nothin' more
Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need
My buddies all tried to change my mind
But I told them that I thought it through
Well Katie laughed and my momma cried
When they heard me say I do
Her little ring was a little thing
But it was all that I could afford
Now shes mine all mine
Till the day I die
And I never wanted nothing more
No I never wanted nothing more
Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need
One Sunday I listened to the preacher
And I knew he was preaching to me
I couldn't help it I walked up front
And I got down on my knee
Right then and there I swear
I changed when I found the Lord
Glory Hallelujah good God Almighty
I never wanted nothing more
No I never wanted nothing more
Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need
I never wanted nothing more
And I never wanted nothing more

You sure know what you're doing holding me this way.
And I'll go where you lead me
Anywhere you say.
You've got me where you want me.
So darling please be kind.
Before you take it all, and I
make that final fall.
You've got to keep in mind I'm
a new fool at an old game.
A kid out of school, trying to find my way.
But I don't know the rules, teach me how to play.
I'm just a new fool at an old game.
Maybe I'm a dreamer, or maybe I'm naive.
But when you say you love me I start to believe
That coal can turn to diamonds.
And this night will never end.
But if it isn't so, and I cry when you go.
You've got to understand that
I'm a new fool at an old game.
A kid out of school, trying to find my way.
But I don't know the rules, teach me how to play.
I'm just a new fool at an old game

Early this morning I opened my eyes
And caught you watching me sleep
I'm getting new looks from an old lover again
I love you, I want you forever and always
Was written all over your face
I'm getting new looks from an old lover again
It's such a good feeling
Knowing I that I can still win what I've already won
It's great to know we still can be lovers and friends
It's such a good feeling
Knowing it's better than I ever thought it could be
Because of new looks from an old lover again
I feel your fingers touching my body and mind
As they brush through my hair
I'm getting news looks from an old lover again
And deep in your eyes I see the hunger
That only true love can feed
I'm getting new looks from an old lover again
It's such a good feeling
Knowing I that I can still win what I've already won
It's great to know we still can be lovers and friends
It's such a good feeling
Knowing it's better than I ever thought it could be
Because of new looks from an old lover again
I love those new looks from an old lover again

Ridin' down the road in my pick-up truck
Ya better get ready cause I'm pickin' you up
With a full moon a shinin' and a little bit a luck
We'll run out outta gas and maybe get stuck
We could get lost baby I don't care
I ain't worried as long as you're there
There ain't no place that I'd rather be
Next to sittin' next to me
There ain't no place that I'd rather be
Next to you, next to me
Barbecue chicken in aluminum foil
Just enough money for my gas and oil
Who needs your shrimp and your caviar?
I'd sooner have you just the way you are
Rich people got their money to hold
Mansion on the hill 'n' diamonds and gold
Well, it can't compare as far as I can see
Next to sittin' next to me
There ain't no place that I'd rather be
Next to you, next to me
Radio playin' our favorite song
I'll change the station if the news comes on
When the signal ain't comin' in too strong
We'll make our music honey all night long
If the Good Lord's willin' when we're old and gray
The kids are grown up and moved away
We'll be rocking' here side by side
With the BBQ chicken and the TV guide
Well, it can't compare as far as I can see
Next to sittin' next to me
There ain't no place that I'd rather be
Next to you, next to me

Just like every lock's got to have a key.
Every river flows, looking for the sea.
And when you plant a seed,
it reaches for the sky
that's just the way it is, nobody wonders why
Like coffee needs a cup, you know that it ain't
much good without it. We were meant to be together....no doubt about it.
Like a hammer and a nail, socks and shoes
we go hand in hand like a rhythym and blues.
You're the one I'm dreaming of, got to have your love, can't live without it. We were meant to be together, no doubt about it. No they're ain't no doubt about it.
Something was missing it was making me blue. But all ever wanted is you.

Oak Ridge Boys - No Matter How High - # ONE - 1990
When I was a young boy, I would dream about life
And wonder just how sweet it would be
But baby, I got lucky when I met you that night
Now, you'll always have this promise from me
No matter how high I get, I'll always look up to you
You'll always be number one, I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me, baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you no matter how high I get
Up here on the mountain, it gets crazy sometimes
So crazy, I don't know what to do
When I've had it up to here with all of their lies
I can count on you to tell me the truth
No matter how high I get, I'll always look up to you
You'll always be number one, I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me, baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you no matter how high I get
You are the one that turned me around
You helped me keep my feet on the ground
No matter how high I get, I'll always look up to you
You'll always be number one, I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me, baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you no matter how high
No matter how high I get, I'll always look up to you
You'll always be number one, I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me, baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you no matter how high
No matter how high I get, I'll always look up to you

Am I dreamin'
Or stupid?
I think I've been hit by Cupid
But no one needs to know right now
I met a tall dark
And handsome man
And I've been busy makin' big plans
But no one needs to know right now
I got my heart set
My feet wet
But he don't even know yet
But no one needs to know right now
I'll tell him someday
Some way and somehow
But I'm gonna keep it a secret for now
I want bells to ring
to sing
The white dress the guests the cake the car the whole darn thing
But no one needs to know right now
I'll tell him someday
Some way and somehow
But I'm gonna keep it a secret for now
We'll have a little girl
A little boy
A little Benji we call Leroy
But no one needs to know right now
And I'm not lonely
Anymore at night
And he don't know that only
He can make it right
And I'm not lonely
Anymore at night
And he don't know that only
He can make it right
I'm not dreamin'
Or stupid
But boy have I been hit by Cupid
But no one needs to know right now
No one no one
No one needs to know right now

No one needs to know

Sara Evans & Vince Gill - No Place That Far - # ONE - 1999
I can't imagine, any greater fear
Then waken up, with out you near
And though the sun, will still shine on
My whole world, would all be gone
But not for long
If I had to run
If I had to crawl
If I had to swim a hundred rivers
Just to climb a thousand walls
Always know that I would find a way
To get to where you are
There's no place that far
It wouldn't matter, why we're apart
The lonely miles, two stubborn hearts
And nothing short, of God above
Could turn me away, from your love
I need you that much
If I had to run
If I had to crawl
If I had to swim a hundred rivers
Just to climb a thousand walls
Always know that I would find a way
To get to where you are
There's no place that far
Oh if I had to run
(If I had to run)
Of I had to crawl
(If I had to crawl)
If I had to swim a hundred rivers
Just to climb a thousand walls
Always know that I would find a way
To get to where you are
There's no place that far
Baby there's no place that far

A heart isn't blind
It just sees what it wants to see
I hope yours is lookin' at mine
The way that you're lookin' at me
Well I've been around
I've taken chances before
But this time I'm hopin' for more
You're makin' it easy
CHORUS:
Nobody falls like a fool
Nobody loves like a believe
After so many dreams have fallen through
It's time that one came true
Nobody falls like a fool
Nobody loves like a believer
And I'm fallin' 'cause I believe in you
I know you're afraid
Of the words we have spoken
There's been so many promises made
And so many broken
Oh but please don't hold back
I've already opened the door
& this time I'm hopin' for more
You're makin' it easy

Like a candle burnin' bright
Love is growing in your eyes
A flame to light our way
That burns brighter every day
Now I have you
Nobody loves me like you do
Like a leaf upon the wind
I could find no place to land
I dreamed the hours away
Wondered every day
Do dreams come true?
Nobody loves me like you do
What if I never met you?
Where would I be right now?
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me like you do
I was words without a tune
I was a song still unsung
A poem with no rhyme
Dancer out of time
But now there's you
Nobody loves me like you do
What if I never met you?
Where would I be right now?
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody loves me like you do

Chris StapletonNobody To Blame - ZZZ2015 ACM Song of the Year
She took down the photograph
Of our wedding day
Ripped it down the middle
And threw my half away
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
She broke all my fishing rods
Put my guns in hock
Threw my clothes out in the yard
And changed out all the locks
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
I know right where I went wrong
I know just what got her gone
Turned my life into this country song
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
She fired up my old hot rod
Ran it in the pond
Put sugar in my John Deere
I can't even mow my lawn
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
She built her a bonfire
With my old six string
Took all my good whiskey
And poured it down the drain
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
I know right where I went wrong
I know just what got her gone
Turned my life into this country song
And I got nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me
Nobody to blame but me
I got nobody to blame but me

Tim McGraw - Not A Moment Too Soon - # ONE - 1995
I was standing at the end of my rainbow
With no where to go and no pot of gold in sight
All my wishes were way too much to hope for
But when I saw you I knew I'd seen the light
And not a moment too soon
With not a minute to spare
You touched my heart when I didn't have a prayer
In my darkest hour
When my world was filled with gloom
Your sweet love saved me not a moment too soon
I used to think that love would never find me
And the one who cares was lost somewhere in time
But when you found me I knew I'd found forever
You rescued me just before I crossed the line
And not a moment too soon
With not a minute to spare
You touched my heart when I didn't have a prayer
In my darkest hour
When my world was filled with gloom
Your sweet love saved me not a moment too soon
Your sweet love saved me not a moment too soon
Not a moment too soon

Jeff Carson - Not On Your Love - # ONE - 1995
We both said some things we don't really mean
Sometimes love can be like that
And right now they hurt, but they're only words
There nothin' we can't take back
But every time we don't see eye to eye
You worry I might say goodbye
Not on your love, not in this life
Could I ever leave, I wouldn't think twice
Of letting you go, by now you should know I need you too much
Not on your love, no way in this world
Could I ever live without you girl
When times get tough, I'm not giving up
Not on your love
When we started out we made a vow
Not to sleep 'till we settled the fight
And there have been times we've seen the sun rise
But, it always worked out alright
Even in the darkest hour before dawn
I never thought of moving on
Not on your love, not in this life
Could I ever leave, I wouldn't think twice
Of letting you go, by now you should know I need you too much
Not on your love, no way in this world
Could I ever live without you girl
When times get tough, I'm not giving up
Not on your love

It was noon time, down time, break time
Summertime, Miller Time, anytime
She was looking pretty fine
A red light, green light, go
All fired upside downtown
She was shaking me all around
I was tuned in, going nowhere, second wind
Jonesing, drooling, feeling good, if you would
Oh yeah, by the way she moves
She's got me rolling in dirt in a white t-shirt
Breaker Breaker 1-9 she's a big ol' flirt
By now she's got me pretty tied up
Tied down, any way I chose
I got nothin' to lose
In like Flynn, I was
Looking for the win
Just trying anything, hey
Baby, where you been
All my life I've been looking for
Someone like you
Falling head over heels
Hey what can I do
Oh yeah, by the way she moves
She's got me rolling in dirt in a white t-shirt
Breaker Breaker 1-9 she's a big ol' flirt
By now she's got me pretty tied up
Tied down, any way I chose

Now I'm in the fast lane going 98
By now I know she can

Younger Brothers - Nothing But The Radio On - 1982
Gary Allan - Nothing On But The Radio - # ONE - 2004
I sure do hope this is a long night,
Cause I've never felt one so right
Each look into your eyes I fall in,
A little more and more,
Looks like we started us a fire,
Wrapped up in flames of desire,
With every touch their burning higher,
Two shadows dancing on the wall
With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio
We'll fall asleep here in the moonlight,
In tangled sheets we?ll be here all night,
And when we wake up in the morning,
We might stay like this all day,
Two people meant to be together,
Two lovers dreaming of forever,
And it just keeps on getting better,
With every tender little kiss
With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio
Two people meant to be together,
Two lovers dreaming of forever,
And it just keeps on getting better
With nothing on but the radio,
Feel the music playing soft and slow,
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio
You and me and the lights down low,
With nothing on but the radio

Anne Murray - Now And Forever (You And Me) - # ONE - 1986
Up until now I've learned to live without love
Like a ship without a sail, wandering aimlessly lost
I never knew how it felt to lose my control
Now that I've found you, this is all so new
You and me, we've got a destiny
Starting tonight we'll be together
You and me, this is what love should be
And it's gonna be right, now and forever
Darlin', inside your eyes I can see mysteries there
And you're melting the ice surrounding me, I'm no longer scared
I feel you inside my soul and I'm captured tonight
But don't let go, this is paradise
You and me, we've got a destiny
Starting tonight we'll be together
You and me, this is what love should be
And it's gonna be right, if you tell me
There's a heaven up above, then that's what I'll believe
'cause you're the one thing that I'm so sure of
I feel you inside my soul and I'm captive tonight
But don't let go, this is paradise
You and me, we've got a destiny
Starting tonight we'll be together
You and me, this is what love should be
And it's gonna be right, now and forever
You and me, we've got a destiny
Starting tonight we'll be together
You and me, this is what love should be
And it's gonna be right

Roy Orbison - Oh Pretty Woman - 1964
Pretty woman, walkin' down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you, mercy
Pretty woman won't you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman that you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me
Pretty woman stop awhile
Pretty woman talk awhile
Pretty woman give your smile to me
Pretty woman yeah, yeah, yeah
Pretty woman look my way
Pretty woman say you'll stay with me
'Cause I need you, I'll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight
Pretty woman don't walk on by
Pretty woman don't make me cry
Pretty woman don't walk away, hey, OK
If that's the way it must be, OK
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
There'll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see?
Is she walkin' back to me?
Yeah, she's walkin' back to me
Oh, oh, pretty woman.

Brad Paisley & Alabama - Old Alabama - # ONE - 2011
She'd rather wear a pair of cut-off jeans
Than a fancy evening dress
And with her windows rolled down
And her hair all blown around
She's a hot southern mess
She'll take a beer over white wine
A campfire over candle light
And when it comes to love
Oh her idea of, a romantic night
Listenin' to old Alabama, drivin' through Tennessee
A little dixieland delight at the right time of the night
And she can't keep her hands off of mee!
And now we're rollin' down an old back road
I got the steering wheel in one hand
We'll find a hideaway where she and I can play
In mother nature's band
Now we're listenin' to old Alabama
Parked somewhere in Tennessee
A little dixieland delight and it feels so right
And it's love in the first degree ee ee!
Forget about Sinatra or Coltrane,
Or some ol' righteous brothers song
And Barry White ain't gonna work tonight
If you really wanna turn her on
Play some back home come on music
That comes from the heart
Play something with lots of feeling
'cause that's where music has to start
Now we're listenin' to old Alabama
And we're drivin' through Tennessee
A little dixieland delight and it feels so right
And its love in the first degree
Yeah' you know we're listenin' to old Alabama (old Alabama)
Drivin' through Tennessee (Tennessee)
A little why lady why at the right time of the night
Oh and she can't keep her hands off of mee
Oh, play me some old Alabama
Oh, play me some old Alabama
Won't you play me some old Alabama
Oh pla ee ay ay, yee haw!
So the one you loved just left you for another
And your down
Or you lost your job and you need a drink
You look around and start to think
That no one understands what you been through

Kendalls - Old Fashioned Love - # ONE - 1978
It's an old time kind of love way down in his soul
Just the way his daddy taught him a long long time ago
He's soft and gentle in a pair of faded jeans
Some may think he's square but I love him just the same

He gives me that old fashion love sweeter than honey
Old fashion love can't buy with money
He's the sunshine of my sky he's an old fashion guy
He gives me that old fashion love just for me

Saying I love you with sweet good morning smile
Holding hands on the front porch never goes out of style
Picnic on Sunday in the clear country air
An old fashion man is hard to find just anywhere

He gives me that old fashion love...

Oh oh he's soft and gentle in a pair of faded jeans
I'm such a lucky girl cause he belongs to me

He gives me that old fashion love...
He gives me that old fashion love...
He gives me that old fashion love...

Merle Haggard - Old Man From The Mountain - # ONE - 1974
The old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe the grinder
You better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home
I've been a-workin' in the sawmill
I'm all uptight and tense
And I got wind that someone's
Been diggin' under my back fence
Thought I'd better call you
And let you know today
That the old man from the mountain's on his way, yeah
The old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe the grinder
You better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home, wind it up, now
Been workin' my dang fool head off
All for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good lovin'
So I'm comin' down the hill
Don't want no friendly Henrys
Warmin' up my bed
And the old man from the mountains means what he said
The old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe the grinder
Better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home, one more time!
The old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe the grinder
You better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home

Eddie Rabbitt - On Second Thought - # ONE - 1990
Some-times a man does things without half thinkin'
And what I saw I did not under-stand
I called you names and said some things that hurt you
And in the heat I started walkin' out that door
But on second thought I'll just turn a-round in my
Tracks
And walk back into your arms where I belong --- I was
Wrong
On second thought I apologize for what I've done
'Cause you're the only one I'll always be in love with
I know it's not your fault that you're so pretty
And that you turn the head of every man --- I understand
But when I saw you dancing with him I just lost it
I started thinkin' I don't love you any more
But on second thought I'll just turn a-round in my tracks
And walk back into your arms where I be-long --- I was wrong
On second thought I apologize for what I've done
'Cause you're the only one I'll always be in love with
But when I saw you dancing with him I just lost it
I started thinkin' I don't love you any more
But on second thought I'll just turn a-round in my tracks
And walk back into your arms where I be-long --- I was wrong
On second thought I apologize for what I've done
'Cause you're the only one I'll always be in love with
Yes you're the only one I'll always be in love with

Earl Thomas Conley - Once In A Blue Moon - # ONE - 1986
Nine times of ten, she's right and I am wrong,
When I won't give in she just goes along
Standing by my side, sitting home alone
I'll never know what keeps her hanging on
When anybody else would be long gone
But once in a blue moon I'll do something right
And Once in a blue moon I'll make her feel so fine
I can make her laugh, And make her cry
She hates the way she loves me sometimes
Once in a blue moon I'll do something right
She's starving for affection, so hungry for loves touch
But she only hears 'I love you' when we're making love
Lord, I'll always wonder why she love me so much
And the best I'll ever do won't be enough
So I'll just thank my lucky stars above
But once in a blue moon I'll do something right
And Once in a blue moon I'll make her feel so fine
I can make her laugh, And make her cry
She hates the way she loves me sometimes
Once in a blue moon, once in a blue moon
Every once in a blue moon
I'll do something right
Once in a blue moon...

Dan Seals - One Friend - # ONE - 1988
I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will
I always thought that we were blessed
And I feel that way still
Sometimes we took the hard road
But we always saw it through
If I had only one friend left
I'd want it to be you
Sometimes the world was on our side
Sometimes it wasn't fair
Sometimes it gave a helping hand
Sometimes we didn't care
'Cause when we were together
It made the dream come true
If I had only one friend left
I'd want it to be you
Someone who understands me
And knows me inside out
Helps keep me together
And believes without a doubt,
That I could move a mountain
Someone to tell it to
If I had only one friend left
I'd want it to be you
Someone
And knows me inside out
Helps keep me together
And believes without a doubt,
That I could move a mountain
Someone to tell it to
If I had only one friend left
I'd want it to be you

Johnny Lee - One In A Million - # ONE - 1980
Sometimes it seems the world's a jungle
Through it all I was born to stumble
Searchin' for somethin' I never would find
I take your love in bits and pieces
Comin' to you only when it eases that lonely feelin'
That gets in my mind and you treat me so kind
With those hard times come a dime a dozen
But girls with your kind of lovin' are one in a million
They're so hard to find
And those hard times come a dime a dozen
But girls with your kind of lovin' are one in a million
I'm lucky you're mine
I know your friends don't think much of me
They say you're a fool to love me
But girl I know they'll never turn you around
You're bound to love, you hard luck poet
When I let you down you don't show it, you know it don't matter
They can't touch what we found when the sun goes down
And those hard times come a dime a dozen
But girls with your kind of lovin' are one in a million
They're so hard to find
And those hard times come a dime a dozen
But girls, with your kind of lovin' are one in a million
I'm lucky you're mine
And those hard times come a dime a dozen
But girls, with your kind of lovin' are one in a million
They're so hard to find
And those hard times come a dime a dozen

Ronnie Milsap - Only One Love In My Life - # ONE - 1978
So many times
These few dreams of mine
Seem hidden behind
A mountain too high to climb
But you were the one
Who said, 'go on, follow your star'
When the song in my heart
Was just a voice in the dark
You could hear my mellow key
There's only one moon
That shines in the night
And only one love in my life
Only one love in my life,
Only one love in my life
I'm a ship on the open ocean darling
You're my guiding light
The radio played
My new song today
And I heard someone say
'Man, he sure got it made'
If only they knew how much you
Have made of me
Together we came
From nowhere to fame
And I never could have made it
Alone
For me there's only one moon
That shines in the night
And only one love in my life
Only one love in my life,
Only one love in my life
I'm a ship on the open ocean darling
You're my guiding light
Only one love in my life,
Only one love in my life
I'm a ship on the open ocean darling
You're my guiding light
You're my guiding light
And you're the only love in my life

I've seen this world from corner to corner
There ain't much ground that I haven't covered
I've drank it's wine
I've tasted it's pleasures
I've known some love
And I've known some lovers
If there's one lesson in the livin' I've done
The best things only come along in numbers of one
There's only one Eiffel Tower
One finest hour
One New York town
One 5th Avenue
There's only one Mona Lisa
One Leaning Tower Of Pisa
One Paris and there's only one you
I've been a king
And I've been a pauper
And everything there is in between
It took some time to know what is timeless
But I've found and learned what that means
I'll never leave you, girl
'Cause I know the catch
Wonders of this world
Will never come with a match
There's only one Eiffel Tower
One finest hour
One New York town
One 5th Avenue
There's only one Mona Lisa
One Leaning Tower Of Pisa
One Paris and there's only one you
There's only one Eiffel Tower
One finest hour
One New York town
One 5th Avenue
There's only one Mona Lisa
One Leaning Tower Of Pisa
One Paris and there's only one you

Well I know there's a reason
And I know there's a rhyme
We were meant to be together
And that's why,
We can roll with the punches
We can stroll hand in hand
And when I say it's forever
You understand
That you're always in my heart,
You're always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much,
You're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
I could have turned a different corner
I could have gone another place
Then I'd of never had this feeling
That I feel today, yeah
That you're always in my heart,
You're always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much,
You're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
'Cause only you can love me this way
Oh
That you're always in my heart,
You're always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much,
You're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
'Cause only you can love me this way
Oh
Only you can love me this way.

When you open up your heart and let my love come in
I know you've been hurt by an old love affair
But darling don't blame me I wasn't even there
Your long lonely nights I will bring to an end
When you open up your heart and let my love come in
Open up your heart...
Someone before me has treated you like dirt
Someone before me has made your heart hurt
Your long lonely nights I will bring to an end
When you open up your heart and let my love come in
Open up your heart...
When you open up your heart and let my love come in

Lady Antebellum - Our Kind Of Love - # ONE - 2010
Here we go
You wear your smile like a summer sky
Just shining down on me and you
I swear your heart is a free bird
On a lazy sunny afternoon
I love the way that you were up for anything
Never worried 'bout what people say
That's right, oh that's right
What we got is
Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love
Mmm that's our kind of love
Skipping rocks and leaving footprints
Down along the riverbank
Always holding hands, never making plans
Just living in the moment, babe
You keep me laughing with those funny faces
You somehow always know just what to say
That's right, oh that's right
What we got is
Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love
That's our kind of love
Oh that's right, baby you and I
What we got is
Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, oh
Just like driving on an open highway
Never knowing what we're gonna find
Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up
Whoa, yeah, that's our kind of love
Oh, that's our kind of love
Oh, that's our kind of love
One, two, three, here we go!
Oh, yeah
That's our kind of love, girl
Don'tcha know it

Taylor Swift - Our Song - # ONE - 2007
I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car,
He's got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel,
The other on my heart,
I look around, turn the radio down, he says, baby is something wrong?
I say nothing, I was just thinking how we don't have a song,
And he says,
Our song is a slamming screen door,
Sneaking out late tapping on your window,
When we're on the phone and you talk real slow,
'Cause it's late and your mama don't know,
Our song is the way you laugh,
The first date man I didn't kiss her when I should have,
And when I got home, before I said amen,
Asking God if He could play it again.
I was walking up the front porch steps after everything that day,
Had gone all wrong, had been trampled on and lost and thrown away,
Got to the hallway well on my way to my lovin' bed,
I almost didn't notice all the roses,
And the note that said,
Our song is a slamming screen door,
Sneaking out late tapping on your window,
'Cause it's late and your mama don't know,
Our song is the way you laugh,
The first date man I didn't kiss her when I should have,
And when I got home, before I said amen,
Asking God if He could play it again.
I've heard every album, listened to the radio,
Waiting for something to come along,
That was as good as our song,
'Cause our song is a slamming screen door,
Sneaking out late tapping on your window,
When we're on the phone, and he talks real slow,
'Cause it's late and his mama don't know,
Our song is the way he laughs,
The first date man I didn't kiss him when I should have,
And when I got home, before I said amen,
Asking God if He could play it again.
I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car,
I grabbed a pen and an old napkin
And I wrote down our song.

Taylor Swift - Ours - # ONE - 2012
Elevator buttons and morning air,
Strangers silence makes me want to take the stairs,
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares,
But right now,
My time is theirs.
Seems like there's always
Someone who disapproves,
They'll judge it like they know about me and you,
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do,
The jury's out,
And my choice is you.
So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,
The stakes are high,
The waters rough,
But this love is ours,
You never know what people have up their sleeves,
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me,
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles,
But I don't care,
'Cause right now you're mine,
And you say,
So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,
The stakes are high,
The water's rough,
But this love is ours
And it's not theirs to speculate,
If it's wrong and,
Your hands are tough but they are where,
My belong in,
I'll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you.
'Cause I love the gap between your teeth,
And I love the riddles that you speak,
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored,
'Cause my heart is yours.
So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,
And don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
But they can't take what's ours,
They can't take what's ours,
The stakes are high,
The water's rough,
But this love is ours.

Lucinda Williams - Passionate Kisses - ZZZ
Is it too much to ask?
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back
Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff
Shouldn't I have this,
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa ohh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Is it much to demand
I want a full house and a rock and roll band
Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think
Shouldn't I have this,
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Do I want too much?
Am I going overboard to want that touch?
I shouted out to the night
Give me what I deserve 'cause is my right
Shouldn't I have this,
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa ohh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa ohh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Trisha Yearwood - A Perfect Love - # ONE - 1998
Sunday morning when the paper comes
Let's read it front to back
And see what's going on
Drink our coffee by the flower bed
And talk about the stuff that's running through our heads
When you look at me the way you do
I can't help but look right back at you
Yeah this is a perfect love
We're doing nothing but what a perfect love does
We're not trying to make history
It's just you and me
In a perfect love
Hey let's drive to the edge of town
See what there is to see and then turn back around
Stop by and see your Mom and Dad
And hear them talk about the busy week they had
Then let's take a walk beside the lake
See what kind of fun we can make
Yeah, this is a perfect love
We're doing nothing but what a perfect love does
We're not trying to make history
It's just you and me
In a perfect love
Oh ain't it a perfect love
I know you love me
Just because
Yeah, this is a perfect love
We're doing nothing but what a perfect love does
We're not trying to make history
It's just you and me
In a perfect love

Every now and then someone comes to you
And somehow you know, a dream has just come true
Well, here it is baby and what I'm trying to say
Well here I am, darling, you can put your dreams away
Ever wish for love and you wish so long
You begin to think, it would never come along
Well, here it is baby, and what I'm trying to say
Here I am, darling, so put your dreams away
Put your dreams away, just lay beside me
Take all this love, that's here inside me
Here's all the dream, you'll ever need
Put your dreams away, rest them on my shoulder
Darling, the search is over, if you wanna love
That's here to stay, you can put your dreams away
You can look for love, in a thousand eyes
You can search the world, but don't you realize?
That, here it is baby, what I'm trying to say
I'll always love you darling, so, put your dreams away
Put your dreams away and just lay beside me
Take all this love, that's here inside me
Here's all the dream, you'll ever need
Put your dreams away, rest them on my shoulder

Ernest Tubb - Rainbow At Midnight - # ONE - 1947
After the war was over I was coming home to you
I saw a rainbow at midnight out on the ocean blue
The stars in heaven were shining the moon gave its light from above
I saw your face in this rainbow and it made me think of our love
We'll build our home in the country and make all our dreams come true
There we will make a heaven sweetheart just for we two
Here we will live so happy and have a baby or two
We'll name them after the rainbow because it reminds me of you
After this life is over and our journey here is through
We'll move to the land of the rainbow and live in the stary blue

I'm gonna do it darlin'
I could waste time tryin' to figure it out
I'm jumpin' anyhow
I've never been this far
Didn't know love could run so deep
Didn't know I'd loose this much sleep
Holdin' you close
Chasin' that moon
Spendin' all night lovin' just who you are
Sparks flyn' in the dark
Shootin' out lights
Runnin' down dreams
Figurin' out what love really means
Baby givin' you my heart
Is a real fine place to start
Somethin' is goin' on
I can't explain but sure can touch
It's callin' both of us
Stronger than any fear or doubt
It's changin' everything I see
It's changin' you it's changin' me
Holdin' you close
Chasin' that moon
Spendin' all night lovin' just who you are
Sparks flyin' in the dark
Shootin' out lights
Runnin' down dreams
Figurin' out what love really means
Baby givin' you my heart
Is a real fine place to start
Right here right now's
The perfect spot
The perfect time
The perfect moment
When your skin is next to mine
Yeah, yeah
Holdin' you close
Chasin' that moon
Spendin' all night lovin just who you are
Sparks flyn' in the dark

Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers - Real Love - # ONE - 1985
They say that it's a matter of trusting
Before love has a chance to begin
And it's never simple
Faithless hearts can cripple
And only a strong love survives
I know they say that it's a fine line
Between giving up and giving in
But once your heart's been in it
You just can't forget it
It's like nothing that you've felt in your life
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts' celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You're my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need
You are such a part of my life
That I can't remember me without you
And we've had our nights
We've had our share of fights
But we've never thought of giving it up
Oh, you and I we must be dreamers
'Cause we're making our dreams come true
I could spend my life
Just holding you so tight
And never, ever get enough
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts' celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You're my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need
We got real love
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts' celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You're my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need

Bryan White - Rebecca Lynn - # ONE - 1996
Rebecca Lynn grew up in Carolina
Half a mile from Tucker Cherry's farm
A quiet girl with green eyes full of fire
Her daddy's pride and all her mama's charm
Rebecca Lynn became my heart's desire
Long about the start of second grade
Mrs. Roosenbloom let me sit beside her
So we'd pass notes and after school we'd play
Singing ring around the rosie
Pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty cake and baker's man
Tag your it, kick the can
And I think I hear my mama calling
Gotta go
Man I loved her so
High school days with me and Becky learning what it really means to be in love
Give and take, holding back for Heaven's sake
And fighting for a week and making up
I said please Becky won't you marry me
Prom night in my car out by the curb
She was so surprised, first she laughed and then she cried
And somewhere in my heart I'm sure I heard
Singing ring around the rosie
Pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty cake and baker's man
Tag your it, kick the can
Mama flashed the porch light for me
Gotta go
Man I loved her so
When love is wrong it dies and that's the way it goes
But when it's right, your love grows
Laura Jean was born in Tennessee
Now that's a common little miracle I know.
But for me and Becky Lynn she's the dream that started
When we fell in love so many years ago
Singing ring around the rosie
Pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty cake and baker's man
Tag your it, kick the can
And I think I hear your mama calling
Gotta go
Oh man I loved you so

Stuart Hamblen - Remember Me) I'm The One Who Loves You - 1950
When you're all alone and blue,
No one to tell your troubles to
Remember me,
I'm the one who loves you

When this old world turns you down
Not a true friend can be found
Remember me,
I'm the one who loves you

And through all kinds of weather
You'll find I'll never change
Through the sunshine and the shadows
I'll always be the same

We're together right or wrong
Where you go,
I'll tag along
Remember me, I'm the one who loves you.

Conway Twitty - Rest Your Love On Me - # ONE - 1981
Maybe you don't know me any more than I know you
And I wouldn't blame you if you walked away
I've been watching you all evening with those teardrops in your eyes
And it touches me much more that I can say
You know I hate to think that someone
Could have hurt someone like you
And if I was him I'd be right by your side
Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocket
Rest your love on me a while
Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocketat other world
The one your love takes me to
I wanna go with you.
I wish I were glass
So you could see through
Then you'd know before you ask
That I wanna go with you.
I wanna go with you
To that other world
The one your love takes me to
I wanna go with you
You take me away
To a world I never knew
But what else can say
I wanna go with you.
I wanna go with you
To that other world
The one your love takes me to
I wanna go with you.
The one your love takes me to
I wanna go with you

Hold me close, hold me tight

With all my heart
Ev'ry time that you're near
All my cares disappear
Darling, you're all that I'm living for

More and more
I thought I could live without romance
Until you came to me
But now I know that
I will go on loving you eternally
Won't you please be my own?
Never leave me alone
'Cause I die ev'ry time we're apart
I want you, I need you, I love you

Well, I thought I could live without romance
Until you came to me
But now I know that

Won't you please be my own?

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
And so I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you each step of the way
And I will always love you
I will always love you
Bitter-sweet memories
That's all I'm taking with me
Good-bye, please don't cry
'Cause we both know that I'm not
What you need
I will always love you
I will always love you
I hope life, treats you kind
And I hope that you have all
That you ever dreamed of
I wish you joy
And I wish you happiness
But above all this
I wish you love
And I love you will always love you
I, I will always, always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

Dan Seals - I Will Be There - # ONE - 1987
We have known each other for us long
We are most like one
And the ties of our love are so strong
They could never be undone
But if you should ever get restless
Just remember where ever you go
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
There are times when you may get lonely
Feeling lost on your own
But if there's one thing this love has shown me
We are never alone
And no matter how far away you are
My love follows you
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
On a cold night, in the moonlight
When you're dreamin', and when you rise in the sunrise
Baby, I swear I will be there
Cause no matter how far away you are
My love follows you
In every smile, every face
Any time, any place
I will be there
Like a light in the dark
When you look in your heart
You'll stop and stare
And I will be there
I will be there, any time, I will be there
On a cold night, in the moonlight and when you rise, in the sunrise
Baby I will be there

Ricky Skaggs - I Wouldn't Change You If I Could - # ONE - 1983
I wouldn't change a single thing about you if I could
The way you are just suits me to a T
A princess in a storybook
A king upon his throne
That's what we are and you belong to me
I wouldn't change you if I could
I love you as you are
You're all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You're everything that's good
You're perfect just the way you are
I wouldn't change you if I could
Your eyes your lips, your tender smile
I'd leave them as they are
And come what may I'd never change a thing
And if I were a potter
And you a piece of clay
The only thing I'd change would be your name
I wouldn't change you if I could
I love you as you are
You're all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You're everything that's good
You're perfect just the way you are
I wouldn't change you if I could

Sometimes you may think I take yoke you for granted
And granted, sometimes maybe I do
'Cause I've grown so used to you lying next to me
That I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me
No I wouldn't want to get up in the morning if you weren't there
To kiss me and start my day off right
And to be waiting when I get home with loving just for me
No I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me
It's love that makes the world go round
And my love for you just grows with leaps and bounds
'Cause you know just what to do when the world has turned all blue
And I wouldn't want to live if you didn't love me

Forester Sisters - I'd Choose) You Again - # ONE - 1987
Looking in my life
Through the eyes of a young girl growing older all the time,
Maybe just a little wiser
I can clearly see
All my mistakes keep coming back to visit me
Pointing out the roads not taken
So much I'd like to change but one thing I'd do the same
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
Out of all the boys in the world
I'd choose you again
Times weren't always good
Seems like the Lord gave all the easy parts away
But every time the road got rocky
You'd look at me and say
Had all you needed long as I was there with you
You're the reason I kept going
If I could start my life anew
The first thing that I would do
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
Out of all the boys in the world
I'd choose you again
I'd choose you again, I'd choose you again
If God gave me the chance to do it all again
Oh, I'd carefully consider every choice and then
I'd listen to my heart and I'd choose you again
You again, you again

Has it been ten years
Since we said I do
I've always heard marriage made one seem like two
But you're looking better than you did back then
You still make this old heart give in
And if I had it to do all over
I'd do it all over again
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again
The preacher man said till death do us part
That seemed like forever to a young man's heart
Now the days seem much shorter
The longer we love
And the memories just keep adding up
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again

If tonight should be our last night together I'm not sorry that we fell in love at all
If tomorrow sun should find me hurtin' for you I know
That the price for loving you would still be small
For I'd never know the thrill of your sweet lips
And the chills I get just knowing that you're mine
'Cause I've spent my life not knowing what real love is oh no
Though I'd be hurtin' I'm still certain
That I'd rather love and lose you than never know your love at all
For I'd never know the thrill...
Yes I'd rather love and lose you than never know your love at all

Lovin' that 8 to 5
And never have to leave you here alone

Randy Travis - If I Didn't Have You - 1992
Well I lost my heart on the day we met
But I gained a lot, and that I don't regret.
Then I hung around 'till you said I do
I knew I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you.
Well it changed my thinking
And it changed your name.
And neither one of us will ever be the same.
And I swear I'm never gonna be untrue,
'Cause I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you.
If I didn't have you
I'd long ago
Been left in the dark, out in the cold.
Blowing around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind.
If I didn't have you
I know I'd be
Floundering around like a ship at sea.
Lost in the rain of a hurricane,
And that's where I'd have been.
But I didn't get lost cause I saw your light
Shining like a beacon on a cold dark night
And the sun came up and the skies turned blue
No I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you
Well I count my blessings every night I pray
That the lord lets me keep you just one more day
And every day he does cause God knows too
That I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you
If I didn't have you
I'd long ago
Been left in the dark, out in the cold.
Blowing around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind.
If I didn't have you
I know I'd be
Floundering around like a ship at sea.
Lost in the rain of a hurricane,
And that's where I'd have been.
Well I've already said it but I swear its true
I know I wouldn't have nothing
If I didn't have you

We both said some things I know we never meant,
And when I slammed the door tonight you wondered where I went.
If I know you, you're probably wonderin' what to do.
You're thinkin' that I'm gone for good, if I know you.
But if I know me, I'll turn this car around.
I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry.
I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too,
And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me.
Sometimes I lose my head, say things to break your heart,
Forgettin' if I lost your love, it would tear my world apart.
If I know you, you didn't mean one single thing you said.
Truth be known, you're dyin', cryin', lyin' there in bed.
But if I know me, I'll turn this car around.
I won't get halfway through town, and I'll be sorry.
I'll stop and call, and you'll say you're sorry too,
And I'll come runnin' back to you, if I know me.
If I know me, and I know me.

Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
Now we can talk all night about the weather
Tell you 'bout my friends out on the coast
I could ask a lot of crazy questions
Or I could ask what I really want to know
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
The rain can fall so soft against the window
The sun can shine so bright up in the sky
But daddy always ton't make small talk
He said, Come on out and say what's on your mind
So if I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight

Jack Guthrie - If It's Wrong To Love You - ZZZ
Garth Brooks - If Tomorrow Never Comes - # ONE - 1989
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt
The way I feel about her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel
'Cause if tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
So tell that someone that you love
Just what you're thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

Montgomery Gentry - If You Ever Stop Loving Me - # ONE - 2004
My old man's backhand used to land
Hard on the side of my head
I just learned to stay out of his way
There's been street fights, blue lights
Long nights with the world sittin' on my chest
It just showed me how much I could take
Hard times, bad luck
Sometimes life sucks
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
The bank man, the boss man, the lawman
All tryin' to get their hands on me
And I ain't even done a danged thing wrong
I've been waylaid, freight-trained, short-changed
By bigger an' badder men
An' all I got to say is: Bring it on.
Hard rain, rough road
So my life goes
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
I need you
Gotta have you
In my life, on my side
Every day I'm alive
Every night when I'm greedy an' needing
You!
That's all right, I'm okay
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
It ain't nothin' but another day
But only God knows where I'd be
If you ever stopped lovin' me
Baby, never stop lovin' me
Ah, just see what your lovin' does to me

K T Oslin - I'll Always Come Back - # ONE - 1988
It's a favorite of mine.
About a little girl and some sheep
That she could not find.
They told her not to worry,
They'd come back.
Darlin, you're my shepard,
I'm your little lamb.
But you ain't always gonna know where I am,
But don't you worry, I'll come back.
I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always run back, straight to you.
I'll never get too far away from you.
I'll never get too lost that I can't be found.
And I'm never gonna swim too far out, I might drown.
And I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
Well there's a wooden wonder from way down under,
They call a boomerang.
If you handle it right, it'll come back.
But, you must have had one when you were a boy.
'Cause you've got the touch that turns me into a toy.
And like a boomerang, I'll come back.
Keep your eyes on the horizon.
When you start to missing me,
Just look out your window and there I'll be.
'Cause I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always run back, straight to you.
I'll never get too far away from you.
I'll never get too lost that I can't be found.
And I'm never gonna swim too far out, I might drown.
And I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.
I'll always come back, come back baby, to you.

Eddy Arnold - I'll Hold You In My Heart - # ONE - 1947
I'll hold you in my heart till I can hold you in my arms
Like you've never been held before
I'll think of you each day, and then I'll dream the night away
Till you are in my arms once more

The stars up in the sky know the reason why
I feel so blue when I'm away from you
I'll hold you in my heart till I can hold you in my arms
So, darling, please wait for me.

Changin' my life with your love
Has been so easy for you
And I'm amazed every day
And I'll need you
'Till all the mountains are valleys
And every ocean is dry, my love
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you
I'll still be loving you
Never before did I know
How loving someone could be
Now I can see, you and me
For a lifetime
Until the last moon is rising
You'll see the love in my eyes, my love
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you
I'll be yours
Until the sun doesn't shine
'Till time stands still
Until the winds don't blow
When today is just a memory to me
I know I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you
I'll still be loving you
I'll still be loving
I'll still be loving you

Here we are talking about forever
Both know damn well it's not easy together
We've both felt love
We've both felt pain
I'll take the sunshine over the rain
And I'll try to love only you
And I'll try my best to be true
Oh darling I'ling I'll try
So I'm not scared
It's worth a chance to me
Take my hand let's face eternity
Well I can't tell you I'll never change
But I can swear that in every way
And I'll try to love only you
And I'll try my best to be true
Oh darling I'll try
I'm not perfect
Just another man
But I will give you all that I am
I'll try.
To be true to you I'll try
I'll try
To always love you I'll try

Carter Family - I'll Twine 'mid The Ringlets - ZZZ
I'll twine 'mid the ringlets of my raven black hair
The lilies so pale and the roses so fair
The myrtle so bright with an emerald hue
And the pale aronatus with eyes of bright blue

I'll sing and I'll dance, my laugh shall be gay
I'll cease this wild weeping, drive sorrow away
Tho' my heart is now breaking, he never shall know
That his name made me tremble and my pale 'cheeks to glow

I'll think of him never, I'll be wildly gay
I'll charm ev'ry heart, and the crowd I will sway
I'll live yet to see him regret the dark hour
When he won, then neglected, the frail wildwood flower

He told me he loved me and promis'd to love
Through ill and misfortune, all others above
Another has won him; all, misery to tell
He left me in silence, no word of farewell

He taught me to love him, he call'd me his flower
That blossom'd for him all the brighter each hour
But I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
My visions of love have all faded away.

Ronnie Milsap - I'm A) Stand By My Woman Man - # ONE - 1976
At five oclock she knows Ill soon be home.
She don't worry bout me runnin' 'round,
'Cause all of my good times are wating right there for me
and she knows where I'll be when the sun goes down.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
Our world turns around a little gold band,
and love leads us through life, hand in hand.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
We fall asleep at night thinking , ain't love grand.
That's why I'm a stand by my woman man.
When she's down, she knows I'll be beside her.
'Cause I'm not just her lover, I'm her friend.
Our love keeps getting better and I'll gladly spend forever
standing by the woman who stands by her man.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
Our world turns around a little gold band,
and love leads us through life, hand in hand.
I'm a stand by my woman man.
We fall asleep at night thinking , ain't love grand.
That's why I'm a stand by my woman man.

Lonestar - I'm Already There (Message From Home) - # ONE - ZZZ
He called her on the road
From a lonely, cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
But when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
Said, Daddy when you coming home?
He said the first thing that came to his mind
I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh, I'm already there
She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you, darling
Don't worry about the kids--they'll be all right
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes
I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there
We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are
I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there
Oh, I'm already there

All I Ever Need Is You
Kenny Rogers & Dottie West
Sometimes when I'm down and all alone
Just like a child without a home
The love you give me keeps me hangin' on
Oh honey, all I ever need is you
You're my first love, you're my last
You're my future, you're my past
And loving you is all I ask, honey
All I ever need is you
Winters come and they go, and we watch the melting snow
Sure as summer folI'm gonna get you
You're gonna love me
No doubt about it
I'm gonna get you
It ain't a matter of chance
Honey, it's destiny
There ain't no getting' away
It's just the way it's gonna be
I'm gonna get you
You're gonna love me
No doubt about it
I'm gonna get you

John Conlee - I'm Only In It For The Love - # ONE - 1983
There's something you got that really gets me going
It's hard to believe the way the feelings growing
Let me say before my heart starts showing
I'm only in it for the love
I want you to know you got my full attention
And every move is with my best intention
Before we go on I thought I aught to mention
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love and affection
I think I'm heading in the right direction
Hence the question that I'm really asking
Is do you want a love that's everlasting
So many times I let my heart get broken
I close my eyes and left my heart wide open
Now I only deal in real emotions
I'm only in it for the love
I'm only in it for the love

Brad Paisley - I'm Still A Guy - # ONE - 2008
When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnic
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You're probably thinking that you're going to change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up all but no matter what
Remember I'm still a guy
When you see a priceless French painting
I see drunk, naked girls
You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might
Walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy
I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the groubr> 'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by
I can hear you now talking to your friends
Saying Yeah girls he's come a long way
From dragging his knuckles and carrying a club
And building a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy
And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by
These days there's dudes getting facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tackle-box
With all of these men lining up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy
All my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy

Doug Stone - In A Different Light - # ONE - 1991
Every morning I watch you
Walk into the office, in you business suit
And matching shoes
With your hair pulled back neatly
You tug at your glasses
And you sit down just 3 desks down
And I watch you in the fluorescent glare,
And my mind drifts away somewhere
And I see you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind.... you're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
There's girls at the office
The guys always notice, when they walk by
But, you're not the type
They don't know what I know
How somethings just don't show
In tailored tweets, that's fine with me
Let them all think what they want to
As for me when I look at you
I see you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind... You're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
Baby it's you... In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind... You're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night
It's You
In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind you're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you, last night

Phil Vassar - In A Real Love - # ONE - 2004
I was eighteen makin' minimum wage
With a letterman jacket and a Chevrolet
I thought I was cool, man I ruled the school
You were cum laude with the strawberry lips
You had the whole world danglin' at your fingertips
Your senior year and I was Daddy's worst fear
We ran off on graduation night
Thought a copule of left hand rings would make everything right
With a little bit of love, little bit a learn
Little bit of watchin' a few more candles burn
Findin' out what life was
A little bit of fuss, a little bit of fight
Little bit of kiss and makin' up all night
And all day wakin' up in a real love
Twenty two workin' double overtime
I was spendin' dollars and makin' dimes
We were overdrawn and barely hangin' on
Then one night you came to me
With tears in your eyes and an E P T
And said guess what, baby ready or not
I just smiled but I was scared to death
How am I gonna have a kid when I'm still a kid myself
With a little bit of love, little bit a learn
Little bit of watchin' a few more candles burn
Findin' out what life was
A little bit of fuss, a little bit of fight
Little bit of kiss and makin' up all night
And all day wakin' up in a real love
It all adds up to a real love

I can feel you wantin' to fall whenever I'm with you
I can tell you wanna give in the same way that I do
Love can be a hurtin' thing when faithless hearts deceive
I know you've been the fool before but baby you won't with me.
If only you believe, if only you believe
In love, it's what we make it
In love, we've got to be strong
In love, it's where I believe that we belong.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
Some people just gotta talk, they say love is on shaky ground
And every where you look these days
There's a broken heart going down, down, down.
Baby more than anything I want you in my life, yeah
Take my hand and show some faith and believe what you feel inside
Believe what you feel inside because I want what you feel inside.
In love, it's what we make it
In love, we've got to be strong
In love, it's where I believe that we belong.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
Baby, I feel it and I know you feel it too
So hold on to me, and I'll hold on to you.
In love, I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you
In love, we've got to be strong
It's where I believe that we belong, yeah.
I find a reason for believing dreams come true
And I know enough to know I'm in love with you...

John Conlee - In My Eyes - # ONE - 1984
She just a woman a hundred pounds of flesh and blood
Quick with a smile warm with a touch for me
she's just a woman and not the least or the most desired
But she's set one man's heart of fire and it's me that she wants to please
And in my eyes god never made a more beautiful girl
In my eyes there's no one more lovely in all of the world
And she looks at me at times with such surprise
When she sees how special she is in my eyes
she's only human and she cries sometimes when she looks in the mirror
And counts a new line that seems to appeared overnight
she's only human it's not that she's vain she's just afraid
That there'll come a time when I'll turn away at the sight but I swear that's not right
And in my eyes she just grows lovelier to me
In my eyes she's only aging gracefully
And a thousand strands of gray just won't disguise
The woman she'll always be in my eyes
Sometimes she makes mistakes but I'm aware of her faults
Her moods go up and down but that's just because
she's just a woman and giving her love only to me
Without her health I would be less of a man than she thinks I am
And in my eyes love never changes or pretends
In my eyes her mystery never ends
And everything I've dreamed as years go by
Makes her love grow sweeter still in my eyes
In my eyes she is my woman

For all I've been blessed in this life
There was an emptiness in me
I was imprisoned by the power of gold
With one honest touch you set me free
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
For every mountain I have climbed
Every Raging river crossed
You were the treasure I longed to find
Without your love I would be lost
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
In this life, I was loved by you

Kenny Rogers & Dolly PartonIslands In The Stream - # ONE - 19831983 ACM Single of the Year
Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was somethin' going on
You do something to me that I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got somethin' goin' on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
over to another, ah-ah
I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothin' if you got no one
And you did walk in tonight
Slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never
We start and end as one, in love forever
We can ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
Sail away
Oh, come sail away with me
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah

Keith Whitley - It Ain't Nothin' - # ONE - 1990
My boss is the boss's son and that makes for a real long day.
When that day is finally done I'm facing 40 thousand cars on the interstate.
Feeling lower than a well diggers shoes
knee deep in a mess of blues.
But those blues just fade away
When I hear my baby say.
[Chorus]
It ain't nothin a little bit of love won't fix
It ain't nothin but a scratch, a little bit of love can't stitch.
It ain't nothin a little bit of love can't heal.
Your love makes me feel.
No matter what hands me -- it ain't nothin, it ain't nothin.
It was written all over her face she was about to climb the walls.
She said you gotta get me out of this place cause even
Cindarella got to go to the ball.
If you multiply hell times three that's what this day has been like for me.
I said honey we'll do the town.
Just don't let it get you down.
Cause......

Seasons change, rivers wind
Tumble weeds roll, and the stars shine
Wind howls, dawn breaks
Cowboys riding time slips away
And I love you
It just come natural
It's what I was born to do
Don't have to think it through
Baby, it's so easy loving you
It just come natural
It's what I was born to do
Don't have to think it through
Baby, it's so easy loving you
Fire burns, waves crash
Seeds grow and good things last
Ships sail, dreams fly
Night falls and full moons rise
And I love you
It just come natural
And I love you
It just come natural
It just come natural
It just come natural

Floyd Tillman - It Makes No Difference Now - ZZZ
Makes no difference now what kind of life fate hands me
I'll get along without you now, that's plain to see
I don't care what happens next, for I'll get by somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

It was just a year ago when I first met you
I learned to love you and I thought you'd love me too
But that's all in the past and I'll forget somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

Now that we have really parted I can't believe we're through
I don't blame myself, I'm sure I can't blame you
There was something had to happen, and it happened somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now

After all is said and done I'll soon forget you
Altho' I know that it will be so hard to do
Let things happen as they will, and I'll get by somehow
I don't worry, 'cause it makes no difference now.

Alan Jackson - It Must Be Love - # ONE - 2000
First I get cold then hot

Oh what a pain I've got it must be love
There's nothing I can do
All that I want is you

Something is wrong alright

Ty Herndon - It Must Be Love - # ONE - 1998
I just dropped her off
I'm thinking, 'Oh, what a night'
I oughta be flying
But I'm sitting here at this green light
I thought I was in control
Though I knew where I wanted to go
She's got me turned inside out
I'm wondering what it's all about
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
It's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall
(Does she trouble your mind?)
It's no trouble at all.
Oh, I don't know
But something tells me it must be love.
I just missed my turn
Guess I'm not thinking straight
Oh, and what's with this car
It's driving me back to her place
I'm out here circling around
I've already covered this ground
These feelings just can't be denied
So what am I trying to decide?
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
It's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall
(Does she trouble your mind?)
It's no trouble at all.
Oh, I don't know
But something tells me it must be love.
I don't know, I can't sleep
(Is she breaking your heart?)
Yeah, but isn't it sweet?
(Does she know how you feel?)
Oh, it's right on the tip of my tongue.
(Are you walking on air?)
Well, I'm sure feeling tall

Who's gonna pick you up whenever you fall
Who's gonna be there anytime you call

Oh, it'll be me
Who's gonna sooth you in the middle of the night
Who's gonna hold you and make it right
It'll be me
Oh, it'll be me
I've had my share of the rough times too
You gave me all that you had
You were always there to stand by me
Now it's my turn, darling, to give it all back
Who's gonna wipe all your tears away
Who's gonna bring out the sunshine
On your cloudy days
It'll be me
Oh, it'll be me
Anytime you need to call on me
Any ole time's ok
Darling it don't matter at all to me
You know I'll be on my way

Merle Haggard - It's All In The Movies - # ONE - 1975
They were so much in love with life, happy in every way
But love the movie began with, some how got lost in the play
Like a fire burning out of control,
You got caught up in the actor's role,
And you cried on my shoulder when it came to an end
But that's all in the movies,
It won't happen to you and I
That's all in the movies so baby don't cry
It's all in the movies
It won't happen to us I know
It's all in the movies,
Just a bad picture show
That's all in the movies
It won't happen to you and I
That's all in the movies so baby don't cry
It's all in the movies
It can happen to us I know
It's all in the movies,
Just a bad picture show

Crystal Gayle - It's Like We Never Said Goodbye - # ONE - 1980
I was sure I'd lost my chance for forever
I never dreamed we'd ever meet again
Now here we are alone once more together
Doing all the loving things we used to do back then
Its we like never said goodbye love
You're just a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye
Its good to hear you talk about the old times
Its good to hear your sweet voice once again
Right now all I want to do is touch you
And feel the love start happening
The way it happened then
Its we like never said goodbye love
We're both a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
'Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye
Its we like never said goodbye love
We're both a little shy love
But you sure remember how to make me smile
A different bed a different ceiling
But still that same old feeling
As I hold you close I almost want to cry
'Cause it feels just like we never said goodbye

Wynn Stewart - It's Such A Pretty World Today - # ONE - 1967
It's such a pretty world today look at the sunshine
And every day's the same since I met you
It's such a pretty world today knowing that you're mine
And happinsess is being close to you
And though the rain may fall my skies will all be blue
If I look close enough the sun will come shining through
It's such a pretty world today look at the sunshine
Today and every day since I met you

It's such a pretty world today...
And though the rain may fall...

Sonny James - It's The Little Things - # ONE - 1967
The way you fix my tie in the morning and always brush my coat before I go
The hurried kiss I get from you when I'm leaving
It's the little things that make me love you so
The way you take my arm when we go walking
The way you hold my hand when we're at a show
The way your eyes say more than you when we're talking
It's the little things that make me love you so
Those little things you knew that make me love you
They're all I need to make my dreams come true
And you know what tears me all to pieces
Is the way you tell me that you love me too
The way you know just how I like my coffee
And how you chase away my every care
And the way you go around turning lights down low
It's the little things that make me love you so
It's the little things that make me love you so

Dancing in the dark
Middle of the night
Taking your heart
And holding it tight
Emotional touch
Touching my skin
And askin' you to do
What you've been doing
All over again
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
I've just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go
It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love
Better than I was
More than I am
And all of this happened
By taking your hand
And who I am now
Is who I wanted to be
And now that we're together
I'm stronger than ever, I'm happy and free
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
And if you ask me why I've changed
All I gotta do is say your sweet name
It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love
Oh, it's a beautiful thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
I've just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go
It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love
It's your love
It's your love

Buck Owens - I've Got A Tiger By The Tail - 1965
[Chorus:]
I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much
When you get through with me
Well, I'm losing weight
And turning mighty pale
Looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

Well, I thought the day I met you
You were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit
My dreams and plans

But now, the pace we're living
Takes the wind from my sail
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]

Well, every night you drag me
Where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down

I'm about as helpless
As a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]

In the evening, in the shadows,
I'll be waiting, in Louisi- an- a,
And when I hear your sweet voice,
I'll rejoice, I'll be happy,
And saving my kisses for you.
Jole Blon, Cajun Angel,
Let me tell you how I love you,
In the springtime you promised,
That we would be married,
And I'm waiting, still waiting for you.
Oh ho ho, ah ha ha.

I'll still call you, Delta Flower,
Pretty Blond I still love you,

And I'm patiently waiting for you.

Mais ca t'as dit, ma malheureuse
Quoi t'as fait? Tu vas avoir
Tu serais pitié

Dolly Parton - Joshua - # ONE - 1971
Well a good way down the railroad track
There was a little old rundown shack
And in it lived a man I'd never seen
Folks said he was a mean and vicious man
And you better not set foot on his land
But I didn't think nobody could be that mean

So I took me a walking down the railroad track
I's a gonna go down to that little old shack
And just find out if all them things I haerd was true
Was a big black dog a lyin' out in the yard
And he growled at me and I swallowed hard
And I heard somebody say well who are you

Oh and there he stood in the door of his shack
And his beard and his hair was long and black
And he was the biggest man I'd ever seen
When he spoke his voice was low and deep
But he just didn't frighten me
Cause somehow I just knew he wasn't mean

He said what you doing snoopin' round my place
And I saw a smile come across his face
So I smiled back and I told him who I was
He said come on in and pull you up a chair
You might as well since you're already here
He said you can call me Joshua

Oh Joshua Joshua what you doing living all alone
Joshua Joshua ain't you got nobody to call your own no-no no-no
[ harmonica ]
We talked till the sun was cleaned out of sight
And we still talked when it come daylight
But there was just so much we had to say hey
Now I'd spend my life in an orphan's home
And just like him I was all alone
So I said yeah when he asked me if I'd stay

Well we grew closer as time went on
And that little old shack was a happy home
And we just couldn't help but fall in love
That big black dog and that little old shack
A sittin' down by the railroad track
It's plenty good enough for me and Joshua

Joshua Joshua well you're just what I been looking for
Joshua Joshua we ain't gonna be lonesome anymore Lord Lord
[ yodel ]
Me and Joshua me and Joshua
Me and Joshua yeah yeah me and Joshua

Lyin' here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings
When it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile
I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back
When I'm holding you in my arms
We don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight
I know that if we give this a little time
It'll only bring us closer
To the love we wanna find
It's never felt so real
No it's never felt so right
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight
No I don't want to say goodnight
I know it's time to leave,
But you'll be in my dreams
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right
With just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills, overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
Baby, don't kick it.
I promise I'll fix it Well, it's ok. It's so nice
It's just another day in paradise
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise
Friday, you're late
Guess we'll never make our dinner date
At the restaurant you start to cry
Baby, we'll just improvise
Well, plan be looks like
Dominoes' pizza in the candle light Then we'll tippy toe to our room
Make a little love that's overdue
But somebody had a bad dream
Mama and daddy
Can meand my teddy
Come in to sleep in between?
Yeah it's ok. It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.

Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well, I hear you've got a reputation in town,
For takin' all the young girls an' breakin' them down.
You're givin' me an invitation to stay,
But boy, you know, my heart says I oughtta be runnin' away.
Well, I've never been very, so I guess it's my turn,
I'm gonna see how strong I am.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well you've got some kind of magic in your big brown eyes,
Where'd you ever learn how to hypnotise?
Just like in old men's books that I've read.
Drinkin' lemonade in the shade of my canopy bed.
Well, I've never been hurt, so I'll see what it's worth,
I'm gonna see how strong I am.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want tobe
I don't want to be just another love in your life.
Well, I've never been hurt, so I'll see what it's worth,
I'm gonna give your love a try.
Another love, just another love,
I don't want to be just another love,
On your list of hearts, you've torn apart,
Then you've cast them aside.
Oh, can't you see, I don't want to be,
Oh no, I don't want to be,
I don't want to be just another love in your life.

Anne Murray - Just Another Woman in Love - # ONE - 1984
I'm strong, I'm sure, I'm in control, a lady with a plan
Believing that life is a neat little package I hold in my hand
I've got it together, they call me the girl who knows just what to say and do
Still I fumble and fall, run into the wall, 'cause when it comes to you, I'm
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love
So pardon me if I should stare and tremble like a child
That wanting you look all over your face is driving me wild
I'm just what you make me, can't wait 'till you take me and set all my feelin's free
I know that you can, so come be my man, tonight I want to be
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love
Just another woman in love, a kid out of school
A fire out of control, just another fool
You touch me and I'm weak, I'm a feather in the wind
And I can't wait to feel you touching me again
With you I'm just another woman, just another woman in love

Tex Ritter - Just Beyond the Moon - 1967
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
My mother and my father were in love for 50 years
So when dad died we wondered why my mother shed no tears
We asked her once about it but she wouldn't tell us why
Instead she'd walk outside each night and smile up at the sky
Then just before she left us she called us to her side…
She told us what my father said to her just before he died
I remember when you said you'd never leave me
Through these golden years i've kept the same vow too
But now that i am going please don't leave me
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
You can look up every night and you'll see me light the light
Where i'll watch for you to join me someday soon
We'll go lookin through the stars for the heaven that is ours
And i know we'll find it soon somewhere just beyond the moon
I'll walk just beyond the moon then i'll stop and wait for you
Ill just sit there by a star and i'll watch you from afar
Til i see you walking toward me someday soon
Then together hand in hand we'll find our promised land
And we'll settle down forever darlin' just beyond the moon

Call and tell 'em you won't be in today
Baby there ain't nothin' at the office
So important it can't wait
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What's the point in fightin' what we're feelin'
We both know we'll never win
Ain't this what we're missin'
Let's just stop all this resistin' and give in
Let me wrap my arms around you
You know you don't want to leave this room
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon
So won't you lay back down beside me
Girl just like I know you're wantin' to
Trust me when I tell you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight
I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars
Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude
I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars
It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew

Charley Pride - Kiss an Angel Good Mornin' - 1971
When ever I chance to meet, some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I've always got a smiling face, anytime & any place
And every time they ask me why I just smile & say
You've got to kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home
Well people may try to guess, the secret of my happiness
But some of them never learn it's a simple thing
The secret I'm a woman & a man in love
And the answer is in this song that I always sing
You've got to kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home
Kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Kenny Rogers - Lady - # ONE - 1980
Lady
I'm your knight in shining armor and I love you
You have made me what I am and I am yours
My love

There's so many ways I want to say, I love you.
Let me hold you in my arms forever more
You have gone and made me such a fool
I'm so lost in your love
And oh, we belong together
Won't you believe in my song?

Lady
For so many years, I thought I'd never find you
You have come into my life and made me whole
Forever
Let me wake to see you each and every morning
Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear

In my eyes, I see no one else but you
There's no other love like our love
And yes, oh yes I'll always want you near me
I've waited for you for ove like our love
And yes, oh yes I'll always want you near me
I've waited for you for so long
Lady
Your love's the only love I need

And beside me is where I want you to be
'Cause my love
There's something I want you to know
You're the love of my life
You're my lady

Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty - Lead Me On - # ONE - 1971
Once I made a promise that I'd never lead you on
But I feel the yearn to love you even though I know it's wrong
You'll have to take my hand and lead me slowly through the door
I'll be wrong in what I'm doin' I can't refuse you anymore
Lead me on and take control of how I feel
I can't do this on my own 'cause it's against my will

I need love warm and tender in a way I've never known
If you want me I'll go with you but you'll have to lead me on
Lead me on and take control of how I feel
I can't do this on my own 'cause it's against my will
But I need love warm and tender in a way I've never known
If you want me I'll go with you but you'll have to lead me on

Lionel Cartwright - Leap of Faith - # ONE - 1991
You want a no risk guarantee before you take a chance
You wanna know how the song will end before you start to dance
Well, I can't foretell the future but my heart clearly sees
Your hand in mine for a long, long time if you could just believe

And take a leap of faith, cast away your doubt
Darlin', come what may, we can work it out
A love that's real will always find a way
If you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take

It's a leap of faith
I understand all your doubts and fears of laying your heart on the line
But aren't you afraid of just throwing away a love like yours and mine
I know your heart's been broken, you've been let down before
Though the stakes are high, give it one more try
This time you can be sure

And take a leap of faith, cast away your doubt
Darlin', come what may, we can work it out
A love that's real will always find a way
And if you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take

It's a leap of faith
If you'll trust in me like I trust in you
There's no rain or fire that we can't go through
The first step's always the hardest one to take
It's a leap of faith
It's a leap of faith

Gary Morris - Leave Me Lonely - # ONE - 1987
Leave me lonely
leave me alone
I got somebody special
waitin' back home

she saves her love for me
I save my love for her
You're awful pretty, so pretty girl
I'd love to talk to you but I don't wanna
lead you on to somewhere
I don't wanna go, don't wanna go

So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
to be faithful and true
and it matters to me and her
The matter is one man faithful and true
to me, to her, and to you

Somewhere else girl some other time
I might take you home, I might make you mine
I'd do for you, what I'm doing for her
If things were different oh but there not I can't
give to you what I haven't got to give anymore
I've given my love, given my love

So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
Please understand
I'm doing the best I can
Just leave me lonely leave me alone
I got somebody special waitin' back

home she saves her love for me
I save my love for her
So please understand
I'm doing the best I can
to be faithful and true
and it matters to me and her

The matter is one man faithful and true
to me, to her and to you

Hank Locklin - Let Me Be the One - # ONE - 1953
Let me be the one to walk with you
When you want somebody to talk with you
Anything that makes you happy I wanna do
Oh darling let me be the one

Let me be the one who means the most
The one you wanna love and call your own
And when you choose your partner I wanna be the choice
Oh please let me be the one

Let me be the one to sit with you
And when you want some lovin' I'll know just what to do

Lots of lots of huggin' and a kiss or two
You've gotta let me be the one
Let me be the one to take you out
To your favorite places you have no doubt
And when the evening's gone we'd kiss goodnight
Oh please let me be the one


Let me be the one to share with you
All your little pleasures and sorrows too
In all kind of weather I wanna be with you
Oh please let me be one

Let me be the one to hold your hand

When the preacher says do you take this man?
All these happy thoughts will mean so much fun
If you'd only let me be the one

Elvis Presley - Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - # ONE - ZZZ
Oh baby let me be, your lovin' teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck, and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear

I don't want to be your tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don't want to be your lion
Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough
I just want to be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere

Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear
Baby let me be, around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be (oh let him be)

Your teddy bear
I don't want to be your tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don't want to be your lion
Cause lions ain't the kind you love enou-ou-ou-ough
Just want to be, your teddy bear

Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be) your teddy bear
Oh let me be (oh let him be) your teddy bear
I just want to be your teddy bear (ooh)

Billy Currington - Let Me Down Easy - # ONE - 2011
There's a little moonlight dancing on the sand
There's a warm breeze blowing by the ocelowing by the ocean as you're taking my hand

You need to know where I'm standing now
That I'm right on the edge of giving into ya
Baby it's a long way down
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?

I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
The scent of your perfume floatin' in the air
You're looking like an angel lying on a blanket with a halo of hair
And those lips look too good to be true
Once I taste that kiss, I know what'll happen

I'll be at the mercy of you
If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna t me down easy?
If I fall, can you let me down easy

Let me down easy baby

When you need a good friend well here I am
And if you have a problem I'll be your helping hand

If you have a bad day I'll make you a good night
And if you ever lose your way you know I'll be your guiding light.
Just let my love be your pillow
Lay your worries down and rest your head on me
Just let my love be your pillow
And let me turn your life into a beautiful dream.

Well, I won't promise you there won't be hard times
We'll share whatever comes down each road of life
And if things turn out wrong you can turn to me
Let my arms be your blanket when you sleep.
Just let my love be your pillow
Lay your worries down girl rest your head on me

Just let my love be your pillow
And let me turn your life into a beautiful dream.
Just let my love be your pillow
Lay your worries down and rest your head on me
Just let my love be your pillow
And let me turn your life into a beautiful dream...

Darling this is my desire, set your little old heart on fire
Do the things that lovers always do
So put your little hand in mine I buy you diamond ring so fine
Then I'll build a bungalow for two

Now my baby take a chance for I'm achin' for romance
And know that you were meant for me to love

You know your heart is beatin' fast, you know I'm gonna win at last
So cuddle up and be my turtle dove

'Cause baby when I hold your hand I feel just like a grown up man
Mother Nature says now that's the way

Today I feel so sad and weary
I want a love that cannot be
All I need to make me happy
Let those brown eyes smile at me.


Let those brown eyes smile at me, dear
That's what I wish with all my soul
Let those brown eyes smile at me, dear
Turn my blue moon back to gold.

We've been sweethears so long, darling
Now you're growing tired of me
The last time that we were together
Those brown eyes didn't smile at me.

Let those brown eyes smile at me, dear
Turn my blue moon back to gold..
