Send Me the Pillow You Dream On

length: 2:36

Send me the pillow that you dream on
Oh, don't you know that I still care for you
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it too.

Each night while I'm sleeping oh so lonely
I share your love in dreams that once were true
So send me the pillow that you dream on
And darling, I can dream on it too.

--- Instrumental ---

I've waited so long for you to write me
But just a mem'ry's all that's left of you
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it too.

So darling, I can dream on it too...

Wolverton Mountain

length: 2:40
Now they say don't go on Wolverton Mountain if you're looking for a wife
Cause Clifton Clovers has got a pretty young daughter
And he's mighty handy with a gun and a knife
Her tender lips are sweeter than honey and Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clovers if a stranger should wander there
All of my dreams are on Wolverton Mountain I want his daughter for my wife
I'll take my chances and I'll climb his mountain
Though Clifton Clovers he may take my life
Her tender lips

I'm goin' up on Wolverton Mountain cause it's too lonesome down here below
It's just ain't right to hide his daughter from the one that loves her so
Her tender lips

I don't care about Clifton Clovers I'm gonna climb up on that mountain
I want to just the one I love I don't care about Clifron Clovers
I'm gonna climb up on that mountain

Please Help Me I'm Falling (In Love with You)

length: 2:36
Please help me I'm falling
In love with you
Close the door to temptation
Don't let me walk through

Turn away from me darling
I'm begging you to
Please help me I'm falling
In love with you

I belong to another
Whose arms have grown cold
But I promised forever to have and to hold
I can never be free dear
But when I'm with you
I know that I'm losing the will to be true

Please help me I'm falling
And that would be sin
Close the door to temptation
Don't let me walk in
For I mustn't want you
But darling I do
Please help me
I'm falling in love with you (Repeat 2X)

Singing the Blues

length: 2:11
Well I never felt more like singing the blues cause I never thought that I'd ever lose
Your love dear why'd you do me this way
Well I never felt more like crying all night
Cause everything's wrong and nothing ain't right
Without you you got me singing the blues
The moon and stars no longer shine the dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothing left for me to do but cry-I-I-I-I over you
Well I never felt more like running away but why should I go cause I couldn't stay
Without you, you got me singing the blues
[ Harmonica ]
Well I never felt more like singing the blues cause I never thought that I'd ever lose
Your love dear why'd you do me this way
Well I never felt more like crying all night
Cause everything's wrong and nothing ain't right
Without you you got me singing the blues
The moon and stars no longer shine the dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothing left for me to do but cry-I-I-I-I over you
Well I never felt more like running away but why should I go cause I couldn't stay
Without you, you got me singing the blues

Walk on By

length: 2:10
If I see you tomorrow
On some street in town
Pardon me if I don't say hello
I belong to another and it wouldn't look so good
To know someone I'm not supposed to know
Just walk on by
Wait on the corner
I love you but we're strangers when we meet
Just walk on by
Wait on the corner
I love you but we're strangers when we meet

In dimly little corner
In a place outside of town
Tonight we'll try to say goodbye again
But I know it's not over
I'll call tomorrow night
I can't let you go, so why pretend
Just walk on by...
I love you but we're strangers when we meet

If You've Got the Money, I've Got the Time

length: 2:15

Making Believe

length: 2:15
composer: Jimmy Work
lyricist: Jimmy Work
Making believe that you still love me it's leaving me alone and so blue
But I'll always dream still I'll never own you making believe that's all I can do
I can't hold you close honey when you're not with me
You're somebody's love you'll never be mine
Making believe I'll spend my lifetime loving you making believe
(I can't hold you close) can't hold you close
(When you're not with me) when you're not with me
(You're somebody's love) you're somebody's love
(You'll never be mine) no no never be mine
Making believe I'll spend my lifetime loving you making believe

Blue, Blue Day

length: 1:48
(Don Gibson)

It's been a blue, blue day, I feel like running away
I feel like running away from it all
My love has been untrue, she's found somebody new
It's been a blue, blue day for me.

I feel like crying, dying, what can I do
I feel like praying, saying I'm glad we're through
It's been a blue, blue day, I feel like running away
I feel like running away from the blues.

--- Instrumental ---

How can I make believe that I don't sit and grieve
It's been a blue, blue day for me
I can't pretend and say that I don't love her anyway
It's been a blue, blue day for me.

I feel like crying, dying, what can I do
I feel like praying, saying I'm glad we're through
It's been a blue, blue day, I feel like running away
I feel like running away from the blues.

I feel like running away from the blues...

No Letter Today

length: 2:35
No letter today, I've waited since dawn
I've waited each day since you have been gone
No letter today, all the days are so long
Oh, why don't you write, I know I was wrong.

Just give me one chance, please won't you forgive
I'll love you my dear as long as I live
I know it's no use though I hope and I pray
The postman goes by, no letter today.

--- Instrumental ---

Just give me one chance, please won't you forgive
I'll love you my dear as long as I live
I know it's no use though I hope and I pray
The postman goes by, no letter today...

Bye Bye Love

length: 2:28
writer: Boudleaux Bryant, Felice Bryant
Chorus
Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think Im gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love, goodbye

There goes my baby
With someone new
She sure looks happy
I sure am blue
She was my baby
Till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance
That might have been

Chorus

Im through with romance
Im through with love
Im through with counting
The stars above
And heres the reason
That Im so free
My loving baby
Is through with me

Chorus

Wabash Cannonball

length: 2:20
(A.P. Carter - William Kindt)

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the green New Hampshire mountains to the southland's cajun lore
She's streamlined and she's welcome by the train and one and all
She's a railroad institution called the Wabash Cannonball.

Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
As she rolls on down the mountains from the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear those lonesome whistle's call
Hear the mingle with the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball.

She came down from Birmingham one cold December day
As she rolled into the station you could hear the people say
There's a girl from Tennessee she's long and she's tall
She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball.

Eastern states are dandy so the western people say
From Pittsburg to St Louis and Cincinnati by the way
From the hills of Minnesotta where the wrippling waters fall
The flatlands of New Jersey on the Wabash Cannonball.

We'll drink a toast to Casey Jones may his name forever stand
He's built a reputation with the railroads of our land
His final run is over now all the curtains fall
We'll carry him back to Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball.

Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
As she rolls on down the mountains from the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear those lonesome whistle's call
Hear the mingle with the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball...
