Never Ending Song of Love

composer: Delaney Bramlett
lyricist: Delaney Bramlett
I gave my heart and soul to you, girl
Now didn't I do it, baby, didn't I do it baby
Gave you the love you never knew, girl, oh
Didn't I do it, baby, didn't I do it baby

I've cried so many times and that's no lie
It seems to make you laugh each time I cry

Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I
Yes sir

I thought that heart of yours was true, girl
Now, didn't I think it baby...didn't I think it baby
But this time I'm really leavin' you girl, oh
Hope you know it baby, hope you know it baby

Ten times or more, yes, I've walked out that door
Get this into your head, there'll be no more

Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I
Yes sir

(Didn't I do it baby, didn't I do it baby)
(Didn't I do it baby, didn't I do it baby)

Ten times or more, yes, I've walked out that door
Get this into your head, there'll be no more

Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Oh)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Hoo)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Did I blow your mind, baby)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Can't you see)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Did I blow your mind)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Ooh baby, ooh)

Girl, can we talk for a second
I know it's been a long time
Since some someone's blown your mind, like I did
There'll be other times, for me and you
And I can see the tears fallin' from your eyes

Tell me girl, did I blow your mind

Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Did I blow your mind baby)
Didn't I blow your mind this time, didn't I (Ooh, ooh , ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

On the Southbound

Well I woke up this morning when the cold Chicago wind
Blew my newspaper blanket off my back
Through my dirty broken window the grey sun filtered in
As I dreamed about the Southbound railroad track
I could almost hear the crickets in a sleepy cotton field
As daddy drove our wagon to Virginia
But today I'd give a fortune for a twenty five cent meal
And I wish I was a country boy again
So let me ride on the Southbound
Back to where I came from I don't care or where I am
Let me ride on the Southbound and put me off somewhere near Birmingham

What happened to my vision of a mansion on a hill
And the fame and fortune I came here to win
I've got nothing but the roaches running cross my window sill
And I wish I was a country boy again
So let me ride

Year That Clayton Delaney Died

composer: Tom T. Hall
lyricist: Tom T. Hall
Well I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
It made a big impression on me although I was a barefoot kid
They said he got religion at the end and I'm glad that he did
Clayton was the best guitar picker in our town
I thought he was a hero and I used to follow Clayton around
I often wondered why Clayton who seemed so good to me
Never took his guitar and made it down in Tennessee
Daddy said he drank a lot but I could never understand
I knew he used to picked up in Ohio with a five piece band
Clayton used to tell me son you better put that old guitar away
There ain't no money in it it'll lead you to an early gray
I guess if I'd admit it Clayton taught me how to drink booze
I can see him half stoned pickin' up the Lovesick Blues
When Clayton died I made him a promise I was gonna carry on somehow
I'd give a hundred dollars if he could only see me now
I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
Nobody ever knew it but I went out in the woods and I cried
Well I know there's a lotta big preachers that know a lot more than I do
But it could be that the good Lord likes a little picking too
Yeah I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died

Everybody's Reaching Out for Someone

writer: Dickey Lee, Allen Reynolds
Everybody's reaching out for someone
Everybody's knocking at some door
And long before I ever found you
You're the one that I was reaching for

Just like the trees along the river bend
Lift up the branches to the sun above
We spent our lifetimes reaching for a friend
Cause everybody reach someone to love
And everybody's reaching out

I wanted you since the day my life began
I've heard your footsteps running just beyond my mind
Ever since that moment I've been reaching for your hand
Hoping you'd be reaching out for mine
Everybody's reaching out
Everybody's reaching out

Take Me Home, Country Roads

writer: Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert, John Denver
Almost heaven West Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains Shenandoah River
Life is old there older than the trees younger than the mountains blowin' like a breeze
Country roads take me home to the place I belong
West Virginia mountain mama take me home country roads

All my mem'ries gather round her miner's lady stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty painted on the sky misty taste of moonshine teardrops in my eyes
Country roads take me home...

I hear her voice in the mornin' as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin' down the road I get a feelin' that I should have been
Home yesterday yesterday
Country roads take me home...
Country roads take me home...

Weekends

And later in silence she lay soft as silk on my bed
She whispered I love you then I placed a kiss on her cheek
And in moments her eyelashes covered her dark eyes in sleep
I lay there in silence as she lived in dreams of her own
Loving her so much the tears down my face warmly flowed
Her soft hair kissed my pillow and curled gold and brown on her cheek
My mind took a picture for a memory that I'd always keep
Saturday morning we laughed and we walked in the park
Having such good times that we lost today to the dark

Sunday came running her mother came promptly at three
Taking my daughter my pride and joy away from me
The week days are so lonely but on Fridays Lord my life begins
Cause I can't have her only on the weekends
Saturday morning we laughed...
Saturday morning we laughed...



My Blue Tears

composer: Dolly Parton
lyricist: Dolly Parton
Fly ye away from my window little bluebird fly ye as far as you can away from here
And let not your song fall upon my ear
Go spread your blue wings and I'll shed my blue tears
For the one that I have loved she has left me and gone
And I'm in no mood for to hear your sad song hum hum
Bring not your light into my dark blue yellow sunshine
Waste not your warmth on the coldness in here
Oh trouble me not go ye elsewhere
Go light your blue sky amd I'll shed my blue tears away
For the only one that I have ever loved has gone
And I'm in no mood for the sunshine today hum hum
Go spread your blue wings go light your blue sky and I'll shed not a tear hum hum

Mahogany Pulpit

There's Nobody Home to Go Home To

Special

The only thing I really own is what you see me wearing on my back
The only friends I've ever known are the kind you meet along a railroad track
The kind you bum tobacco from and see the world through a boxcar door
A friend who talks and makes you laugh has nothing much but gives you half
And maybe you don't see him anymore
Special I hear your lonesome whistle whine
Special keep moving me on down the line

My mackinaw's full of holes and ain't too good at keeping out the cold
My shoes are worn as paper thin my feet can feel the cinders through the soles
Sometimes I see a pretty girl wonder what I've missed along the way
Once someone special wore my ring loved me more than anything
I gave her up and caught a train one day
Special I had a special girl on time Special keep moving me on down the line
Special I hear your lonesome
