Crash on the levee, mama, water's gonna overflow
Swamp's gonna rise, no boat's gonna row
Now you can train on down to Williams Point
You can bust your feet, you can rock this joint
But, oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
You're gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

Now don't you try and move me, you're just gonna lose
There's a crash on the levee and, mama, you've been refused
Well, it's sugar for sugar and salt for salt
If you go down in the flood, it's gonna be your own fault
Oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
Yes, you're gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

Well, that high tide's risin', mama, don't you let me down
Pack up your suitcase, mama, don't you make a sound
Now it's king for king, queen for queen
It's gonna be the meanest flood that anybody's seen
Oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
Yes, you're gonna have to find yourself another best friend, somehow.

When I met you in the meadow
You were walking like in a dream
Your head blowing just like the flowers
Deep within me my heart did weep

Oh come on and touch me
Feel the pleasure that I am
Can't you see I'm only human
Oh touch me
Then I know you'll understand
I was born to be your one and only man

Ah, we just stayed there for so many hours
Like the river, you know time moved on
And we lingered amongst the flowers
Then I knew my heart was gone

Oh come on and touch me
Feel the pleasure that I am
Can't you see I'm only human
Oh touch me
Then I'll know you'll understand
That I was born to be your one and only man

You lay softly, yes in the cradle
But my arms, I'd shield the mourn'
And I held you just like a baby, little girl
I could feel my soul reborn

Oh come on and touch me
Give me all the love you can
We were born to be together
Come on and touch me
Then I know you'll understand
That I was born to be your one and only man

I'm so alone
I'm on my own now
I'm going home

You've gone away
Hung up my day now
I just can't stay

When I tell you that I love you
I love you much more than you will ever realize
I do

I'm by myself
Up on the shelf now
I'm getting off

When you tell me that you need me
How can I believe you when you're never home to talk
With me

Velvet

composer: Jeff Kent
lyricist: Jeff Kent
Velvet was a very handsome mother-mare-to-be
Grazing by a country road and tied to a very young tree
We were walking to see her
Velvet gazed upon me

Indian Summer - turning colors on me

Couldn't she have stayed until the first September day
To foal in the autumn shades
The family would have shared her pain
Snake bite deep in the night
Velvet lost her life twice

Indian Summer - turning colors on me

Velvet, now you're gone
Family carries on
Children love you so
They don't even know

Malamute's howl and seem to know
Velvet's old friend Tony cried in the morning sun
She was reaching for someone
And she broke down to a new friend

Indian Summer - turning colors on me
Indian Summer - turning colors on me

I Can't Move No Mountains

arranger: Lou Marini
writer: Michael Gately, Robert John
Can't stop the rain or keep the night from falling
Sometimes I just don't hear you when you're calling
I'm not a one man band, can't write no songs about you
Can't even tell you I'd be lost without you
But I can do things that will keep you smiling
Keep your face warm baby, make you feel like flying
Without to have trying

I can't move no mountain
No I never said I could
I can't make you love me
But I'll make you feel so good
Or I could now

Can't cool the sun or make a rock give water
Sometimes I treat you like a rich man's daughter
But I can make your heart pound with desire
Make wonder, baby, how I keep the fire
Taking you higher

I can't move no mountain
No I never said I could
I can't make you love me
But I'll make you feel so good

I can't move no mountain
I can't move no mountain

Over the Hill

lyricist: Dave Bargeron
29 years and it's over the hill at 30
They got your wheelchair ready
And your hiking boots are not even dirty

Lady luck, a-stepping up beside you greet her
You'll do some climbing together
But then she runs out for somebody younger

There's a shining prize from a carefree day
When the world round was cheering to win
Now daddy who's chairless lets out his belt
And music plays and peace is made for someone else

Over the hill and the bread of the times is yours now
And most deciding
A lot of work and little enjoying

Some along the line get a feeling they have been cheated
Spirit defeated
Young is best is always conceded

There's a shining prize from a carefree day
When the world round was cheering to win
Now daddy who's chairless lets out his belt
And music plays and peace is made for someone else

39 years and the chair is hard to wheel at 40
How would you feel
If you would sit down to roll around at 20

I submit to you my many friends
Better out of tune for there to lend
Good time, everybody in the fold
Got sunshine for everybody young and old

Good time for everybody in the fold
Got sunshine, everybody young and old
Sunshine for everybody in the fold
Got good times for everybody in the fold

So Long Dixie

arranger: Larry Willis
writer: Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil
Lazy moon
Magnolia bloom perfume
And Dixie would receive
A lady fading fast
Still clinging to the past
But she had you hating to leave

So long, Dixie
Sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

When we get the blues
We just shine up our shoes
And head for Dixie's place
We sit ourselves right down
And pass the bourbon round
Let Dixie get on the case

So long, Dixie
Sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

Years go by
Some memories fade and die
But, Dixie, you still shine
Now up here where it's cold
Folks don't understand your soul
Dixie, you're still part of mine

So long, Dixie
Oh, you sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile
