Track Name: 01. MOSES (Old Testament)
MOSES (Old Testament)

GO UP ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP
YOU GO IN FRONT OF YOUR FRIENDS
THE VILLAGE PEOPLE TALKING LOUD
YOU AIN’T A COMING BACK AGAIN

ONE MAN'S BELIEF STRONGER THAN
A PACK OF WOLFS BELOW
SEARCHING FOR THAT MESSAGE NOW
I’M GONNA TAKE IT DOWN BELOW

STANDING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP I PRAY
WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TILL IT COMES MY WAY
I CAN HEAR IT NOW

BEEN A WARRIOR ALL THESE YEARS
AND NEVER ONCE HAVE YOU STRAYED
YOU MARCHED INTO THE FACE OF FEAR
TO CONQUER WITHOUT SHAME

ALTHOUGH YOUR ARMOUR IS OLD AND TORN
YOU STILL STAND STRONG
HAVE YOU GOT YOUR MONEY’S WORTH
OR DO YOU GO HOME ALONE

STANDING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP I PRAY
WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TILL IT COMES MY WAY YEA

TAKE ALL YOUR WRITING DOWN
AND SHOVE IT IN THEIR FACE
CAUSE YOU HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS NOW
AND GONNA LEAVE THIS PLACE

STANDING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP I PRAY
WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TILL IT COMES MY WAY
STANDING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP I PRAY
WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TILL IT COMES MY WAY
I CAN HEAR IT NOW…I CAN HEAR IT NOW…
MOSES HEARS IT COMING
Track Name: 02. SOMEONE WE NEED
SOMEONE WE NEED

WELL I SAW YOU OUT LAST SATURDAY NIGHT
CRUISING WITH SOME FRIENDS
AND I WALKED UP TO YOUR WINDOW BABY ASK YOU HOW YOU’VE BEEN
YOU SAID LORD I’M LOOKING GOOD YEA MEANS A LOT TO YOU
YOU JUST SMILED AND WINKED YOUR EYE THE WAY THAT YOU DO

I’VE BEEN LEARNING A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MYSELF
A LITTLE LESS ABOUT YOU
COULD IT BE WE NEVER GET WHO WE WANT
JUST SOMEONE WE NEED

WELL I CAME BY YOUR HOUSE TODAY
YOU WEREN’T AT HOME
THE NOTE POSTED TO YOUR DOOR IT TOLD WHERE YOU’D GONE
YOU SAID YOU’LL BE BACK TODAY IF I WANT TO STICK AROUND
BUT DON’T TAKE THAT THE WRONG WAY BABY IT’LL ONLY GET YOU DOWN

I’VE BEEN LEARNING A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MYSELF
A LITTLE LESS ABOUT YOU
COULD IT BE WE NEVER GET WHO WE WANT
JUST SOMEONE WE NEED

WELL THE TIME MIGHT BE COMING AROUND
TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO YOU
YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T TRY BABY TO GIVE MY HEART TO YOU
WELL I’D CLIMB THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN LORD TAKE THE MOON FOR YOU
ALL THESE THINGS I DO FOR LOVE ALL THESE THINGS ARE FOR YOU

I’VE BEEN LEARNING A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MYSELF
A LITTLE LESS ABOUT YOU
COULD IT BE WE NEVER GET WHO WE WANT
JUST SOMEONE WE NEED
SOMEONE WE NEED….SOMEONE WE NEED YEA YEA
Track Name: 03. OUR LOVE
Our Love

Standing in the cold and rainy night
I had to leave just didn’t feel right
We had our fun and lots of laughs
Time went on we knew it wouldn’t last


Gave you all my love that I had To share
In the past few months you haven’t been there
Always though I was the only one
Thought were wrong the damage is done


Chorus
Love is what we made of it spending our lives together
And the sun will shine in the stormy times
And I knew we could stand the weather
Life is what we made of it but I guess it wasn’t enough
Cause you broke my heart I’m going to make a new start
I can’t believe this is the end
Of our love

Lead

Chorus
Love is what we made of it spending our lives together
And the sun will shine in the stormy times
And I knew we could stand the weather
Life is what we made of it but I guess it wasn’t enough
Cause you broke my heart I’m going to make a new start
I can’t believe this is the end
Of our love


Verse
Turned around to see you one last time
You stood in the window with tears in your eyes
Now I know why our love won’t last
Nothing we can do to change the past


Going away in the pouring rain
I didn’t know my heart could feel such pain
I made up my mind to go away
Never forget those good ole days


Chorus
Love is what we made of it spending our lives together
And the sun will shine in the stormy times
And I knew we could stand the weather
Life is what we made of it but I guess it wasn’t enough
Cause you broke my heart I’m going to make a new start
I can’t believe this is the end
Of our love
Track Name: 04. WHATCHA FIND
Whatcha Find

Well you say that it’s over
And you tell me that we’re through
Will my heart ever quit breaking
And can I get over you
Well can you stay here till morning
Will you please stay that long
Let the sunshine just one more day
And you can say you’re gone

I guess you’re looking for a little change
Something you can hang on to
Look around and tell me whatcha find - whatcha find
Or did he find you

As I lie here beside you
Touch your body one last time
All the memories of a love once true
Seems to fade right out of sight
And as I wake in the morning
And roll over in my bed
I reach out for you so softly
Will you be there to touch my hand - touch my hand

A dog’s barking at the black of night
As a car goes passing by – passing by
I sit on the porch and I call your name
A little telepathy tonight

Did he find you yeah
Well tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, talk to me baby yeah
Did he find you baby
Did he find you yeah
Did he find you baby got to know want you tell me
Did he find you baby got to know want you tell me
Did he find you baby got to know want you tell me
Did he find you baby
Did he find you
Track Name: 05. I'M GONNA TRY
I’m Gonna Try

Everyone tells me I must be crazy
Say I don’t stand a chance
They say a woman like you isn’t right
I should just make new plans
Maybe their right maybe their wrong
I guess I’ll have to find out on my own

Chorus
I’m going to try my best to win your love
And I don’t care how long it takes to find
My way to your heart
I’m going to give my all and show you just
The way I feel inside
Maybe all of that won’t be enough
I’m going to try

Verse
I’ll send you roses write romantic poems
Anything you desire
Dinner by candlelight walks in the moonlight
Lights in the glow of the fire
Even if it’s just a waste of my time
Gonna put it all on the line

Chorus
I’m going to try my best to win your love
And I don’t care how long it takes to find
My way to your heart
I’m going to give my all and show you just
The way I feel inside
Maybe all of that won’t be enough
I’m going to try

Bridge
I’m going to try with everything I have yea
So no matter what happens at least I’ll know
I took a chance

Chorus
I’m going to try my best to win your love
And I don’t care how long it takes to find
My way to your heart
I’m going to give my all and show you just
The way I feel inside
Maybe all of that won’t be enough
I’m going to try
Track Name: 06. TELL ME WHY
Tell Me Why

Tell me why you’re so lonely
Tell me why you look so blue
Has your heart been broken lately
And can I have this last dance with you

Well I saw you standing on the dance floor
Saw you leaning on the record machine
I want to dance with you my darlin
So want you scoot your boots on over here with me

And tell me why you’re so lonely
Tell me why you look so blue
Has your heart been broken lately
And can I have this last dance with you

Well you told me you were here for a little while
And you told me you'd be leaving before to long
Then why are you still out there dancing
Is it me or have you lost your way home

And tell me why you’re so lonely
Tell me why you look so blue
Has your heart been broken lately
And can I have this last dance with you

Well I know it's late you must be leaving
And I know you had fun on the floor tonight
If there’s one wish that you could grant me
I'd be dancing with you til morning comes

Tell me why you’re so lonely
Tell me why you look so blue
Has your heart been broken lately
And can I have this last dance with you
Can I have this last dance with you
Track Name: 07. RAISE SOUTHERN DIXIE
Raise Southern Dixie

She wore red ribbons in her hair
Her soft skin was brown with blonde hair hanging down
Across the horizon the sun went away
The moonlight lit the beach with the sounds of crashing waves

All down the south bridge the troops gather round
Waiting for the king’s word to take the village to the ground
We were just lovers caught in between
A line drawn by war that never should have been

And she cried raise Southern Dixie your flag up to the sky
Must you battle till the last of you have died
I want my freedom like all the rest
But to give my life out here is not what I find best

She was a woman like none I’ve ever seen
She’s pretty as premadona from a filthy magazine
The starlight grew fast across the sky
My fingers touched her lips a sin but pure delight

We had only moments but they seemed like hours
To hold and embrace before the bullets filled the air
And as I look in her eyes the blood runs down her face
Just another loss of life oh what a human waste

And I cried raise Southern Dixie your flag up to the sky
Must you battle till the last of you have died
I want my freedom like all the rest
But to give my life out here is not what I find best
And I cried raise southern Dixie oh…. Oh
Track Name: 08. DONE SOMEBODY WRONG
Done somebody wrong

Well you woke up this morning with your head screwed on wrong
Lord you can’t remember where this woman came from
Could have swore you didn’t have that last drink
And if you had it to do again you’d rethink this thing
Well you had two shots too much down on bourbon street
And you run your mouth proud out in the street
Well now it’s time to pay for what your mouth brought on
Wondering who is looking for you and who you done wrong
Lord you done somebody wrong

Verse
Sometimes it’s best to let a lying dog lie still
You try on someone new just to see how she feels
And if the skirts a little short and her legs are up to here
You may dive in baby Iknow just how you feel
Well good times are short and bad times are so long, long. Long, long
And life passes by as quick as a southern song
Just as sure as you think you’ve got it made
Comes round the grave digger and put you in your grave
Going to turn out your lights for you

Lead

Verse
Well we all have heard that you reap just what you sow
And if your garden turns up rocks you’ll tote that load
But if an ear of corn pops up out in that field
Well Iguess you’ll do ok yea you probably will
But we’ve all been left standing holding a bag
Some was to smoke and some that we don’t understand
But if we all leave here tomorrow
One thing we’ll find is a little peace of mind
Yea a little peace of mind baby

Lead

1st part of 1st verse
Well you woke up this morning with your head screwed on wrong
Lord you can’t remember where this woman came from
Could have swore you didn’t have that last drink
And if you had it to do again you’d rethink this thing
Well you had two shots too much down on bourbon street

Break

2nd part of 1st verse / end
Now it’s time to pay for what your mouth brought on
Wondering who is looking for you and who you done wrong
Lord you done somebody wrong
Track Name: 09. AMY'S MAN
Amy’s Man

Lying in my bedroom I glance outside
Children playing in the bright sunshine
Summer breeze blows a cold chill
To remind me you’re still not here
I think of your smile and some words you said
About a pageant you had the other day
Wish I could have been there I really do
I’d do anything to be with you

Chorus
Can I see you or call you on the phone
Should I send you a letter or just leave you alone
I have some words to say to you and I hope you’ll understand
In my world I want to be Amy’s man

Verse
I look in the clouds I can see your face
No one in the world can take your place
I try so hard to be a friend
I don’t think you realize the mess I’m in
I’ve never met anyone as perfect as you
Cause you are all things and all things are you

Lead

Chorus
Can I see you or call you on the phone
Should I send you a letter or just leave you alone
I have some words to say to you and I hope you’ll understand
In my world I want to be Amy’s man CHORUS
CAN I SEE YOU OR CALL YOU ON THE PHONE
SHOULD I SEND YOU A LETTER OR JUST LEAVE YOU ALONE
I HAVE SOME WORDS TO SAY TO YOU AND I HOPE YOU’LL UNDERSTAND
IN MY WORLD I WANT TO BE AMY’S MAN

Verse
I walked in a rainstorm the other day
Poured down rain but I walked anyway
A rainbow appeared in the sky so bright
I prayed to have you by my side
Pushing the limits pressing my luck
Since I met you I just can’t give up
Once in a lifetime is all we get
To meet that person we’ll never forget

Chorus
Can I see you or call you on the phone
Should I send you a letter or just leave you alone
I have some words to say to you and I hope you’ll understand
In my world I want to be Amy’s man
- Ooh in my world I got to be Amy’s man

Verse
I wrote this song especially for you
It’s a little simple but all of it’s true
You hold my heart in your precious hands
All I ever want is to be your man

Track Name: 11. WHAT DID I SAY
What Did I Say

What did I say to you
To make you walk out on me
What did I do to change your mind
What could I say to make you smile . . .good-bye

Well now you packed your bags you headed out west
And girl I hope that you find the best
What you need to do is take some time
So that you could clear your mind and then
Send a letter or give me a call
Either one I don’t care at all
Just to hear your voice on the telephone
Telling me you’re coming back home

You left me here standing alone by the telephone
Waiting for you to call
You could change this house to a home with a few words
That you can say
What’s right for you may not be for me at all
Let’s meet in the middle and see
That’s what change is all about now baby
Something good for you and me

Now I’m looking sharp and feeling right
Gonna go out have a good time tonight
Gonna stay out till the crack of dawn
So if you call I want be home and then
3 a.m. come strolling in just to find you there waiting
I’m finaly home how have you been
I slammed the door to leave you wondering

What did I say to you
To make you walk out on me
What did I do to change your mind
What could I say to make you smile . . .good-bye
Good-bye……………………………..
Track Name: 12. SWAMP LOVE
Swamp Love

Walking cross the swampland baby headed for your back door
You can feel the heat now you know he's coming’ back for more
True love is blue now it just ain't working for you no more
You think you've got it made you ain't robbing the cradle from me no more


Creeping cross the back yard woman both of you do go
Summer air like incense you’re walking with your young beau
You’re feeling free now cause you've been loving out your back door
Don’t you know you'll be back down when he puts your feet hard on the ground


You think it's me babe but it's not
You keep looking for more love but you can't handle the love you've got

You think it's me babe but it's not
You keep looking for more love but you can't handle the love you've got


Stepping through the back door I can see you through the fog
Hand in hand you walk together as the dew begins to fall
You think I don't know the games you play when I'm away...yea
Let me tell you one thing baby I wasn't born no not yesterday


Picking up the pieces of a love that’s gone wrong
I’d love you forever if I thought we'd last that long
A gun blasting through the night now you’re not leaving here with me
Love’s blowing cross the swampland in the Deep South warm night autumn breeze


You think it's me babe but it's not
You keep looking for more love but you can't handle the love you've got
Track Name: 13. FALLEN FOR YOU
Fallen For You

Verse
Well I was walking down the street
Just a looking your way
When I tripped on the curb I was having
A bad day
Back on my feet when I turned around
I had fallen for you and your no were to be found

Verse
Strolling through the park the rain was pouring
I saw you driving by wondering just where you
were going
I was covered in mud when I slipped on the ground
I had fallen for you and you’re nowhere to be found.

(Chorus)
Fallen, fallen for you every time you’re passing by
I don’t know if you’re bad luck or an Angel in disguise
Well one thing’s for sure when the world’s got me down
I have falling for you, you were no where to be found
Hey Hey Hey Hey

Verse
Well when I got my courage up
You were dancing all over the floor
I swore to myself to keep my eye on you
You’ll never make it out the door
Well I fell off my bar stool I got up and searched the crowd
I had falling for you and you’re no where to be found

(Chorus)
Fallen, fallen for you every time you’re passing by
I don’t know if you’re bad luck or an Angel in disguise
Well one thing’s for sure when the world’s got me down
I had falling for you, you were no where to be found
I had falling for you, you were no where to be found
Yea whoo
Track Name: 14. GONNA MAKE IT ALRIGHT
Gonna Make It Alright

Well you say that you love me and that’s a crying shame
How you could love someone but don’t even know my name
You walk up to me and say hey baby I aim to please
And I can tell that you’re sincere by the patches on your knees

Your love shines true and bright oh through the darkest night
Your sweet young love will make everything alright
Gonna make everything gonna make it alright

When the morning comes and you rise out of my bed
With the cold sunshine and a ringing in your head
Will the morning light lord will it leave you feeling down
Cause your one night love affair has gone on out of town

Your love shines true and bright oh through the darkest night
Your sweet young love will make everything alright

I’ll tell you good-bye cause now I’m gone away
You see I’ll come back yea when I pass this way
Yes a love that’s true that I have yet to find
But the way that you love me girl just really blows my mind

Your love shines true and bright oh through the darkest night
Your sweet young love will make everything alright
Gonna make everything gonna make it alright . . .yea
Track Name: 15. FROZEN HEARTS
Frozen Hearts

Same ole bar room same ole place
Different people with the same ole face
Just another chance for one night romance
To hide the way I feel

Frozen hearts can’t be broken
I should have packed up and moved away
Cause now you’re gone I can feel the pain
Just give me one more chance
What am I doing here

As I set here and play outside of memphis
At a little café - what am I doing here
Wrote another song for the one that left me
It has me wondering tell me can this be true

Frozen hearts can’t be broken
I should have packed up and moved away
Cause now you’re gone I can feel the pain
Just give me one more chance
What am I doing here

As the sun goes down in the western sky
A scarlet shade of gray - what am I doing here
All of my hopes and dreams begin to fade away
If I can’t see the stars set in your eyes

Frozen hearts can’t be broken
I should have packed up and moved away
Cause now you’re gone I can feel the pain
Just give me one more chance

Frozen hearts can’t be broken
I should have packed up and moved away
Cause now you’re gone I can feel the pain
Just give me one more chance
What am I doing here
What am I doing here - what am I doing here yea yea
Track Name: 16. WITHOUT YOU
Without You

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night
Cold sweats popping out lord something ain't right
I call your name to a cold flat surface of the wall
There’s no reply here no there’s no sound here at all
Nothing but my heartbeat it’s pounding on, and on, and on, and on, and waiting for your call it ain’t coming here at all

Gotta get myself together lord, lord, lord
Gotta work this whole thing out
Pick up the pieces that you left of me what you left of me
Gotta carry on without you . . . Without you somehow

So now you tell me that we’re good friends
That’s all we are lord that’s all we’ve ever been
I’d like to see you or give you a ring
You got a mind of your own and I can’t change a thing

These are the sweetest eyes I ever did see
Lord your smile does something to me
I want to hold you in my arms right now
And taste your kiss and breath right from your mouth

Gotta get myself together lord, lord, lord
Try to work this whole thing out
Pick up the pieces that you left of me what you left of me
Gotta carry on without you . . . Without you somehow

Gotta get myself together lord, lord, lord
Gotta work this whole thing out
Pick up the pieces that you left of me what you left of me
Gotta carry on without you . . .. Without you some…how
Track Name: 01. UNFORGIVING LIE
Unforgiving Lie

Well I saw you on the front porch
A little tear drop in your eye
How can a woman as pretty as you be so dissatisfied
Well I walked up on the front steps
Took your hand and ask you why
On a day as pretty as this
Tell me what has made you cry

Well you told me about your story
And you told me about your life
And a man who once said you were going to be his wife
Maybe that didn’t work out
Something went a little wrong
Can you give it one more try girl
Love can turn out reallystrong

Sometimes love will grow strong and tall
Where you thought the ground was dry
Did you know a flame may sprout red and hot
From an unforgiving lie

Well I sat and held your hand
Through the hot summer day
And you looked at me closely this is what you had to say
I’ve never noticed how much you cared
I never thought about you twice
Now you kneel down before me
And you ask me for your wife

Sometimes love may grow strong and tall
Where you thought the ground was dry
Did you know a flame may sprout red and hot
From an unforgiving lie…from an unforgiving lie
Track Name: 02. BACK ROADS OF MY MIND
Back Roads Of My Mind

I can still see that ole-crooked clothesline
Sheets blowing in the warm sunshine
Grandpa with his fiddle on the front porch swing
I can still recall those sweet melodies and memories

Putting pennies on the rail road track
Watching old number 8 mash em’ flat
Pickin’ teams for a baseball game
The night fishing in the muddy lake

A new tractor was the talk of the town
A crowd gathered just to see how she plowed
I’ve left that simple life miles behind
I can still walk through those times . . .on the back roads of my mind

Holidays were a favorite time
Easter morning found us waiting in line
Outside the church house in our Sunday’s best
The doors would open and we’d march up the steps
Preacher taught me about Jesus
His daughter taught me about first love
I still go back there every once in a while
Yea I still drive by . . .on the back roads of my mind

And out on this highway life goes by in a blink of an eye
So now and then I take a detour to a place where precious memories flood my mind

I woke up from a dream last night
Could of swore I heard the sound of sweet music
Grandpa’s fiddle in the moonlight
Well I spent some time
On those back roads . . .the back roads of my mind
Track Name: 04. IF YOU'RE GONNA PLAY COUNTRY
If You’re Gonna To Play Country

If you’re gonna play country you gotta rock the house

I pulled into town last Friday night
Saw a little tavern thought I’d go inside
The band was playing my favorite tunes
When a man got up and started singing the blues

Well he sung about Waylon ole Willie to
And he sung about Hank lord just a singing the blues
He knew his country from a to z
Then he sung a song lord that really captured me

If you’re gonna play country you gotta rock the house
Gotta play some music worth singing about
If the music’s too loud and the word’s unclear
Take your music and leave it ain’t a welcome here

I listened to him sing all through the night
The band played country without a single fight
I listened closely to what he had to say
Then he turned to me and once again he sang

If you’re gonna play country you gotta rock the house
Gotta play some music worth singing about
If the music’s too loud and the word’s unclear
Take your music and leave it ain’t a welcome here

If you’re gonna play country
Track Name: 05. GONE TO SAN ANTONE
Gone To San Antone

You call me on the phone said you were leaving
You called me up to say you are gone
You told me not to worry or come find you
You’re on the train headed for San Antone

The news struck me hard just like lightening
I could not believe that you were really gone
The news came quickly and decisive
As you dealt down the verdict from the phone

I screamed broke down shouted hollered
Oh why did you decide to go
I fell to both knees prayed up to the Heaven
Thank you Lord now she’s gone
Get on outta hear-beer and pizza tonight boys-
Good time an ESPN on my TV from now on-
None of that soap opera stuff any more

Sometime I’d be happy with you staying
Other times be happy when you’re gone
I never liked the way that you loved me
I never cared if you come back home

Guess I’m trying to say good-bye dear
Guess I’m trying to say so long
It was fun while it lasted now it’s over
Have a good life in San Antone

I screamed broke down shouted hollered
Oh why did you decide to go
I fell to both knees prayed up to the Heaven
Thank you Lord now she’s gone

I screamed broke down shouted hollered
Oh why did you decide to go
I fell to both knees prayed up to the Heaven
Thank you Lord now she’s gone
Thank you Lord now she’s gone
Are you going -you get on outta hear
Track Name: 06. THANK YOU DADDY
Thank You Daddy

Daddy told me when I was young
To be a man it’s hard my son
Well Iknew those words were true
To see how life treated you

You worked hard sixty hours a week
So we could have food and shoes on our feet
You’ll always be my superman flying high up in the sky
Thank you daddy for loving me

Winter’s past and summer has gone
Daddy left me here all alone
The last words daddy said to me
Be a man so the world can see

Well Iknow time’s were hard for us
Working long hours sure must’ve been tough
You never complained when you came in late
Working hard just to pay our way

You worked hard sixty hours a week
So we could have food and shoes on our feet
You’ll always be my superman flying high up in the sky
Thank you daddy for loving me
Thank you daddy
Thank you daddy
For loving me
Track Name: 07. GONE TO HEAVEN
Gone To Heaven

She told me she was leaving right from our bed
Said she was going to a place far away
As I held you in my arms and ask you not to go
You raised your head and whispered I love you so


Now she’s gone to Heaven
Walking on the streets of gold
Standing there beside that road
Looking down on me
And if I get to Heaven I’ll enter those pearly gates
And hold you in my arms my love for all eternity


With the doctor’s hand upon her I held her tight
She said good-bye as she closed her eyes last night


Now she’s gone to Heaven
Walking on the streets of gold
Standing there beside that road
Looking down on me
And if I get to Heaven I’ll enter those pearly gates
And hold you in my arms my love for all eternity
And hold you in my arms my love for all eternity


She told me she was leaving right from our bed
Track Name: 08. PLAYED THE OPRY
Played The Opry

I remember sitting on the porch listening to daddy play
He'd pull out his old guitar he'd begin to sing
Now I still recall all those sunny days
Dad would look at me and grin here's what he'd say

He’d say son I've played this ole guitar from an early age
May have played the Opry but I had bills to pay
And I could never leave your mom now god rest her soul
I sit here and play for her she's listening I know

Many a years have come and gone since daddy passed away
Now he sings for momma in a home far away
Many a nights I think of them and the music dad would play
The memories of his old guitar the words he would say

many a nights I'm on the road so far away from home
And I walk out onto the stage and I sing you my songs
Now I understand why dad could never leave
He had found the one true love I may never meet

Well he’d say son I've played this ole guitar from an early age
May have played the Opry but I had bills to pay
And I could never leave your mom now god rest her soul
I sit here and play for her she's listening I know
Well I sit here and play for her she's listening I know
Track Name: 09. DADDY'S CAR
Daddy’s Car

I would pick her up around seven o’clock
We would drive for hours through the moon lit nights
She was seventeen I had my daddy’s car
Singing with the radio gazing at the stars

Things were easier life was fine
I had my dreams and you were mine
Things were better lord back then . . . In daddy’s car

Time passes on now we’re still here
You with your meetings me and the kids
Life’s been a struggle very hard at times
Wouldn’t trade a moment cause in the back of my mind

Life’s a struggle very hard at times
We had our love and peace of mind
Life’s a mystery we’ll never solve
When i look in your eyes i can still see that car
Still see that car

Now we’ve grown old and you’ve gone away
My heart is with you please hear what i say
Life was good with you i loved you every day
We’ll meet again soon and you’ll hear me say

Things were easier life was fine
I had my dreams and you were mine
Things were better lord back then . . . In daddy’s car
Things were easier back then . . . In daddy’s car
In daddy’s car

Track Name: 02. NEVER SAY GOOD-BYE
Never Say Good-Bye

I read the words you wrote last night that I found in your hand
And you wrote of love that you found and how happy you have been

And I look into the stars above and see a twinkle in your eyes
So I’ll say good night to you my love but I’ll never say good-bye

I found a gift so nicely wrapped with a label addressed to me
And I smiled at the thought that you had planned the occasion so specially

And at times, I feel our loves so strong we could challenge the mighty seas
And I search for ways to prove my love forever faithfully

Spoke with you late last night you had something on your mind
And you told me of a land you saw in a dream you have sometimes
And you ask me if the sun could shine through the dark gray silver clouds
And you told me you could sail away on a ship that’s heaven bound
And you told me you could sail away on a ship that’s heaven bound
Track Name: 03. SUMMER TIME BLUES
Summer Time Blues

Catch a train to Memphis
Roll away from me
You knew our love wouldn't last
All through the summer time
Times were great for a while
But you know they got so bad
Let's be grateful woman
Let's be thankful for the times we had

Well don't you know there’s a summer time blues
You felt you had a little too much a little too much to lose
There's no more love in the summer time blues
Oh summer time

Thrill is gone
You don't want me anymore
I didn't think I could take it
When you walked out my door
All the dreams we had
Mean nothing to you anymore
I looked up at the sky baby
But the rain still pours

Well don't you know there’s a summer time blues
You felt you had a little too much a little too much to lose
There's no more love in the summer time blues
Oh summertime
Oh summer time
Track Name: 04. TURN THIS THING AROUND
Turn This Thing Around

Well now I seen an eagle spread it's wings and fly away
Now I see the storm clouds over the mountain tops
Across the bay
But I’ve never seen the pain that the world is in
Can't we start again

Trees and rivers are slowly going down
The children have no grass for their playing grounds
Tell me how do we stop the destruction all about
Tell me how do we turn this thing around

I can't see the sunshine for the gray skies up above
There's smoke and smog from the factories
Oh does no one really care
Can’t you lend us a hand can't you see we’re going down
And we need a little help from up above

Trees and rivers are slowly going down
The children have no grass for their playing grounds
Tell me how do we stop the destruction all about
Tell me how do we turn this thing around

Oh trees and rivers are slowly going down
The children have no grass for their playing grounds
Tell me how do we stop the destruction all about
Tell me how do we turn this thing around
Tell me how do we turn this thing around

How do we turn this thing around

Track Name: 06. AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH (LIVE)
Ain't Good Enough

Well my baby done left me here all alone
Couldn't play by her rules and now she's gone
Too much drinking out late at night
She needs herself a man who'll treat her right
You see I ‘m a simple man doing life the best I can
And sometimes that just ain’t good enough

You see I’d sit alone late at night and watch TV
You know maybe some music yea just Mr. Merl and me
Well she would come into my room waiving her arms
She’d say why don't go to bed it’s four in the morn
You see I ‘m a simple man doing life the best I can
And sometimes that just ain’t good enough

Well I guess I’ll carry on one more time
I knew I would lose but still I tried
But how was I to know the pain and misery
That when I let go of you that it would nearly
It would be the end of me…. Oh yeah

Now when I see her out on the town
Well I have no doubt that she's been messing around
Lord how the pain hurts watch when I cry
This beautiful lady of mine well she done told me good-bye
You see I’m a simple man doing life the best I can
And sometimes that just ain’t good enough

Well my baby done left me here all alone
I couldn't play by her rules and now she's gone
There was too much drinking I was out late at night
Well she needs herself a man that’ll do her right
You see I ‘m a simple man doing life the best I can
And sometimes that ain’t good enough
Sometimes that ain’t good enough
Track Name: 07. MONDAY MORNING
Monday Morning

Just another Monday morning
Feel the cold wind at my door
See the daybreak through the cracks in the wall
She don't live here anymore

I wake up with the thought of you running
Ramped through my mind
One more day lord and she's farther down the line
Will I see her anymore

You say there's things you've got to find
Before your heart can lead you home....
Your heart will lead you home
Your heart will lead you home

You say there's things you've got to find
Before you have your piece of mind
While the door’s still open for you
You feel now is the time

I still wonder why you left me
I've been waiting by the phone
It’s been weeks since I saw you last
Find yourself and come back home

You say there's things you've got to find
Before your heart can lead you home....
Your heart will lead you home
Your heart will lead you home

Just another Monday morning
Feel the cold wind at my door

Rodeo Star

She was the hottest little dixie down in tennessee
With her long blonde hair hanging to her knees
Great big smile deep dark southern tan
She was hunting herself a rodeo roping man

I was an average guy not willing to wait
Looking for a woman to dance my way
So I headed down to see this dixie belle
She was cutting the rug with every man in town

Well I may not be your rodeo star
But I can give you true love and that's for sure

Well I may not be your rodeo star
But I can give you true love and that's for sure

Well sooner or later you'll dance my way
And i'll hold your body lets twist and sway
Take you out and give you the stars above
Well miss dixie girl you found yourself a rodeo love

Well come on over darling dance with me

Well I may not be your rodeo star
But I can give you true love

Track Name: 09. MY ANGEL CRIES
My Angel Cries

Last night in my sleep I heard an Angel weep
When I woke to my surprise those tears were in her eyes
Angel what could make you feel this way
Can I make those tears go away

Chorus
What could make an Angel cry
What did I do to make her cry
What could make an Angel so blue
I want to take her tears but I don’t know what to do
Tears are flowing from her eyes now the answer’s clear
Finally I know what makes my Angel cry it’s me

Verse
Just one look at her made me break down
Seeing her this way really gets me down
I tried to walk away my heart was filled with pain
Then I knew that I just had to stay

Chorus
What could make my Angel cry
What did I do to make her cry
What could make an Angel so blue
I want to take her tears but I don’t know what to do
Tears are flowing from her eyes now the answer’s clear
Finally I know what makes my Angel cry it’s me
Oh Lord it’s me it’s me

You know I feel blue darling I miss you

Please come back to me and stay

You know I miss you I feel so blue

Lazy days in the heat of may
Want be sunny now that you've gone away

Track Name: 11. CHASING DREAMS
Chasing Dreams

Well I saw you in the court yard with a tear in your eye
Did he leave you crying did he tell you good-bye

Well I can’t solve your problems but I can dry your tears
We can set and talk awhile a comfort between two friends

Chasing rainbows and counting stars has ended here today
Chasing dreams that never worked out quite your way

Well when all is said and all is done the final curtain falls
Can you pick up the pieces of your life and carry on

Life told her time heals all wounds she will someday see
That a place in a heart of love is all she’ll ever need

Chasing rainbows and counting stars has ended here today
Chasing dreams that never worked out quite your way

Well she walked away through the snow fall as the cold wind blows
A lady with a broken heart that’ll heal as time rolls on

Chasing rainbows and counting stars has ended here today
Chasing dreams that never worked out quite your way
Chasing rainbows counting stars has ended here today
Chasing dreams that never worked out quite your way
