Tracklist

Tennessee River Run

length: 3:24

Worked all week, got it all done
Let's make a Tennessee River run
Hey everybody, I think the time is right
Let's get together down where the catfish bite
Cooped up all winter waitin' on a day like this
It's the way I feel when I'm rockin' on the water
Baby that I can't resist

BBQ grill, summertime jam
Just about a mile above the Pickwick dam
Party on the water, whole lotta fun
Time to make a Tennessee River run

I'll get my bass boat, crank up your party barge
We'll drop these anchors out where the big boats are
Break out a cooler, pass out some ice cold beer
Look at all the people out here on the water
Man I can't believe we're here

Swingin' on a rope, gonna have a ball
Jumpin' off the Yellow Creek waterfall
Checking out the honeys baking in the sun
God bless a Tennessee River run

Doo-doo-n-doo-dee

Oh what a weekend, we've had some time to play
I should be leavin', tomorrow's a work week day
I just might call in, tell 'em that I can't get home
Does anybody want to stay a little longer
Or am I gonna be alone?

Floatin' on a tube, gonna weigh a ton
Cajun sausage on a hot dog bun

B-B-Q grill, summertime jam
Just about a mile above the Pickwick dam
Party on the water, whole lot of fun
Time to make a Tennessee River run

Doo-doo-n-doo-dee

Nothing like a Tennessee River run
I love a Tennessee River run
Whoop up a Tennessee River run

I Wouldn't Mind the Shackles

length: 3:43
I've been known to have a drink or two
In the comfort of my home
It helps to minimize the crazy things
I hear when I'm alone
You'd think by now that every sound
Wouldn't send her memory crashing through my brain
I wouldn't mind the shackles if it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

Certain little things she used to say
They come through loud and clear
It's sad but I admit I listen closer than I did
When she was here
Now every noise sounds like her voice
And I'm torn between the pleasure and the pain
I wouldn't mind the shackles if it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

I wouldn't mind the shackles, I knew the day she left
That I'd be wearing them until the end of time
But every day's a battle just to keep the burden of my heart
From interfering with my mind
It's knowing that I'll always have her last goodbye
Ringing in my ears, driving me insane
I wouldn't mind the shackles if it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

Now it seems like every time I turn around here it comes again
Someone else is telling me about the brand new love she wound up in
I tell myself they all mean well
But I still tremble at the mention of her name
I wouldn't mind the shackles if it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

I wouldn't mind the shackles, I knew the day she left
That I'd be wearing them until the end of time
But every day's a battle just to keep the burden of my heart
From interfering with my mind
It's knowing that I'll always have her last goodbye
Ringing in my ears, driving me insane
I wouldn't mind the shackles
If it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

No I wouldn't mind the shackles
If it wasn't for the rattle of the chain

I Miss My Friend

length: 4:03
I miss the look of surrender in your eyes
The way your soft brown hair would fall
I miss the power of your kiss when we made love
Oh But baby most of all

[Chorus]
I miss my friend
The one my heart and soul confided in
The one I felt the safest with
The one who knew just what to say to make me laugh again
And let the light back in
I miss my friend

I miss the colors that you brought into my life
Your golden smile, those blue-green eyes
I miss your gentle voice in lonely times like now
Saying it'll be alright

[Chorus]

I miss those times
I miss those nights
I even miss our silly fights
The making up
The morning talks
And those late afternoon walks
I miss my friend

Callin' Caroline

length: 3:12
I got a lot of highway to travel
I got a little lady on my mind
I'm already pullin' over callin' Caroline
I got to be in Bowling Green by mornin'
It's gonna be a lonely midnight ride
The only thing that keeps me goin' is callin' Caroline

Lord I wish this run was over
You know this old highway never ends
But I'll keep huggin' this old shoulder
Till I'm in her arms again

If I had another way to make a livin'
I would never leave that girl behind
But for now I'll keep a rollin'
Callin' Caroline

Lord I wish this run was over
You know this old highway never ends
But I'll keep huggin' this old shoulder
Till I'm in her arms again

If I had another way to make a livin'
I would never leave that girl behind
But for now I'll keep a rollin'
Callin' Caroline

Yeah for now I'll keep a rollin'
Callin' Caroline
I keep callin' Caroline

Family Tree

length: 3:22
Dancin' in the living room cuttin' up a rug
Dancin' with a baby looks more like a hug
Livin' in a house made of saw mill wood
"Roll over Beethoven" never sounded so good

Come on baby, baby let's go
Where we get the money honey I don't know
One more baby's alright by me
We'll just add another limb to the family tree

Well raising up babies is our new sport
You're one day late and I'm a dollar short
Now maybe it was planned maybe it was a goof
But a cat just has to dance on a hot tin roof

Come on baby, baby let's go
Where we get the money honey I don't know
One more baby's alright by me
We'll just add another limb to the family tree

Well the lawnmower's broken, the tax is due
And if I find another tick I'm gonna come unglued
We got hand me down drawers, hand me down shoes
We got the big belly momma here we go again blues

Hey, hey baby, baby let's go
Where we get the money honey I don't know
One more baby's alright by me
We'll just add another limb to the family tree

Baby, whoa, whoa let's go
Where we get the money, Hell, I don't know
One more baby alright's by me
It's alright, it's alright now baby
We'll just add another limb to the family tree
Oh we'll just add another limb to the family tree
We'll just add another limb to the family tree

Back Where I Belong

length: 3:20
There's a little shack tucked back in the timber
It wasn't much back then but it was home
Sometimes it hurts me to remember
Just how long I've been gone

Oh how I miss the smell of mama's kitchen
And the way she used to sing those gospel songs
Right now I wish that me and dad were fishin'
So I could tell him, he was right, and I was wrong

Big city nights and lights surround me
Feels like a prison to my soul
I can hear a whippoorwill calling me home
Back where I belong

Now all the rockin' chairs are empty
I hate to think how tall the weeds have grown
I'd give back everything the good Lord gave me
If I could just go back to where I belong

Big city nights and lights surround me
Feels like a prison to my soul
I can hear a whippoorwill calling me home
Back where I belong
Back where I belong

The Least That You Can Do

length: 4:02
If it's really over and there's nothin' I can say
I'll do my best to hide the pain and turn and walk away
But do me one last favor and pretend you're hurting too
After all we've been through it's the least that you can do

I don't know any reason we should let the whole town know
Which one of us came up with this plan for letting go
Try to leave me just a little pride to get me through
After all I gave you it's the least that you can do

When you run into our old friends could you ask them how I've been
And maybe even muster up a teardrop now and then
If they ask you how you're doing, what's it really gonna hurt
To tell a little lie and do your best to look your worst

You keep my old love letters in the closet down the hall
And leave at least one picture of me somewhere on your wall
Could you do your best impression of a sentimental fool
After all it seems like it's the least that you can do

Oh I know it won't be long till someone else is loving you
And waking up in your arms just the way that I used to
Promise me at least one time you'll call him by my name
And when I'm with somebody new I'll try to do the same

If someone ever asks you why we went our separate ways
We were just too much in love might be the thing to say
Or maybe you could tell them I was just too good for you
After all I gave you it's the least that you can do

And if the shoe were on the other foot, I'd do the same for you
Hey after all we've been through it's the least that you can do

I Built This Wall

length: 3:07
I dug this hole I'm standing in
She made it clear she ain't coming back again
I'm dying here it's dark and cold
Oh, I'm the only one to blame, I dug this hole

I made this bed I'm crying on
Just like the heart I broke in two, it's hard as stone
You can't go back once love is dead
Look at me now, I dug this hole, I made this bed

These guilty arms are empty now
They were holding someone else
When they let her down
I lost it all, my dreams and plans
See what a fool can do with just two hands
I built this wall I can't get past
It only took one night but Lord it's built to last
It's a heartache wide stands treetop tall
I dug this hole, I made this bed, I built this wall

These guilty arms are empty now
They were holding someone else
When they let her down
I lost it all, my dreams and plans
See what a fool can do with just two hands
I built this wall I can't get past
It only took one night but Lord it's built to last
It's a heartache wide stands treetop tall
I dug this hole, I made this bed, I built this wall
I dug this hole, I made this bed, I built this wall

Opportunity of a Lifetime

length: 3:24
Big brown eyes, soft red lips
I'm thinkin', I could get used to this
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime

My heart melts when you whisper my name
I've got a feeling, if you're feeling the same
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime

I don't need to travel the world
Chase after rainbows, I'm telling you girl
There's so many things that I'd rather do
Like wakin' up each morning with you

We've got a chance at a real true love
We'd have to be crazy to pass it up
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime

I can just see us sittin' there
Front porch swing with gray in our hair
I know it seems like a lifetime away
But we could get started today-ay

We've got a chance at a real true love
We'd have to be crazy to pass it up
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime
Oh yes-sir-ee
The opportunity of a lifetime

Spread a Little Love Around

length: 2:53
Sometimes this crazy world can make us all feel bad
I sit and watch the news and just get mad
We need to stop and smell the roses in the ground
So get out today
Spread a little love around

Talk to a neighbor
Volunteer a favor
Help out a stranger when his car`s broke down
Take your wife a kissin`
When your kids talk - listen
It makes a lovely sound
Spread a little love around

You know it don`t take to much to make somebody`s day
A kind word or tender touch goes a long way
We can change the whole world if we start in our hometown
So get out today
Spread a little love around

Tell your mom you love her
Bear hug your brother
Treat your sister to a night out on the town
Throw the ball for Rover
Wrestle in the clover
Put a smile on that old hound
Spread a little love around

Slap your sweetheart`s fanny
Tickle on old granny
Dance with the kids and act like a clown
A little tiny kiss and hug
Everybody needs that stuff
Turn a frown upside down
Spread a little love around

When this world gets you down
Spread a little love around

POW 369

length: 3:42
I was flying down the highway
Weaving in and out of traffic
I was racing time
An old man pulled out in front of me
And I went crazy as can be
I lost my mind
I blew my horn till I got close enough to see
And what was on his car-tag sure convicted me

POW 369
I should salute you from this heart of mine
And thank you for placing your life on the line
For me, I'm free
I pray that the rest of your journey is a peaceful one
And may you take your own sweet time
Mr. POW 369

The things we take for granted
In this life we lead are tragic
We should be ashamed
He left his home and family
And cast his fate across the sea
Would we do the same
Well I sure bet he's got some stories he could tell
Ain't that many ever made it back from hell

POW 369
I should salute you from this heart of mine
And thank you for placing your life on the line
For me, I'm free
I pray that the rest of your journey is a peaceful one
And may you take your own sweet time
Mr. POW 369

Let me thank you one more time
Mr. POW 369

Where You Think You're Goin'?

length: 3:44
Where You Think You're Goin'?
(Wynn VarbleShawn CampBrice Long)

You've packed up the cups and dishes
Loaded down the car
Hold your horses just a minute
Before you get too far
Where you think you're goin' darlin'
Where you think you're goin' with my heart

You can have the 'frigerator and the new TV
Take the pictures off the wall
That's alright by me but
Where you think you're goin' sweet pea
Where you think you're goin' with my heart

Girl, we had a good thing goin'
Now you're gonna leave
But you've got somethin' that belongs to me
Look at me now, can't you see
It's tearin' me apart
Where you think you're goin' sugar puddin'
Where you think you're goin' with my heart

If that's what you want
Is for me to just break right down
I just might do it

Girl, we had a good thing goin'
But now you're gonna leave
But you've got somethin' that belongs to me
Look at me now, can't you see
It's tearin' me apart
Where you think you're goin' honey bunny
Where you think you're goin' with my heart

Where you think you're goin' sweet cheeks
Where you think you're goin' with my heart

Come back here with that
You can't take everything
Don't you want to just kiss me
Just for the good times
It's goin' be sad and lonesome here
Without you
