03. OUR LOVE 03:35
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Angelene Angelene in the village where I saw your face Stood a boy who’s heart would never be the same Now you’re here all my dreams I will share with you Take my hand and walk with me through this wilderness When I saw you for the first time my heart knew I had found that special one and lord it was you Thank you for the love you’ve given me Angelene you give love to me pure and true A love from your heart to someone who loves you Stay with me through this life and eternity Someday all our dreams will turn to dust again When I saw you for the first time my heart knew I had found that special one and lord it was you Thank you for the love you’ve given me Oh Angelene with this ring darling I the wed My heart’s in your hands keep it safe for me When I saw you for the first time my heart knew I had found that special one and lord it was you Thank you for the love you’ve given me

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

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

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

I Never Meant Hey baby are you feeling blue Do you miss me like I miss you I want to see you see you again The birds are singing a love song I wonder if they know you are gone You know I feel blue darling I miss you I never meant to do you wrong I never thought you'd leave our home Please come back to me and stay I ‘ll never give my heart away it belongs to you We’d walk down the beach You’d hold my hand and kiss my cheek 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 You know I need you I need you today Hey baby since you've been away I wake in tears every day You know I love you and I always will Hey baby are you feeling blue

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
