Tracklist

Eleven Roses

length: 2:49
Take the roses and look into the mirror
And the twelvth rose will be looking back at you
There's just something about a spray of roses
To a woman they say more than man can say
After what I've done you may not keep the roses
But I just thought I would sent them anyway
[ strings ]
There's just something...
After what I've done...



Loser

length: 2:05
It's good to know I'm not the only loser and all this time I thought I was alone
She wanted to walk out and I'm the fool that let her
It's so good to hear the part where I'll soon be gettin' better
So play that song again about the loser
The same one that's been playing all night long
It's good to know I'm not the only loser and all this time I thought I've hurt alone
So play it just for me then I'll go home



Hamburger Steak, Holiday Inn

length: 3:06
Play a different town most every night
Lovin' your woman write a new song that's my life
That's my life and I love it that's my life
There ain't nothin' else in the world above it
I see people all alone pickin' their guitars and singin' their songs
But I tell 'em forget it cause you can't fake it
If you're gonna make it you've gotta live it

I got a big bus with a TV and a bar
And a little room in the back for me and my ole guitar
Gotta stop and fuel up every five hundred miles
Give a picture to the waitress eat a little breakfast country style
That's my life and I love it...

We get home to Nashville on a Monday night
Record songs on Tuesday and on Wednesday take out the wife
But then on Thursday night it's back on the road
I don't care if it's Montana or down in Louisiana just as long as I go
That's my life and I love it...



Divorce or Destroy

length: 2:52
We're old enough to know we can't live life this way
And young enough to start with someone new
So it's divorce or destroy each other which one of the two shall we do
You say in your heart there's no love left for me
And in my heart there's no love left for you

We've stayed together for the children but soon the kids will be grown and be gone
Yet we keep on destroying each other and Lord to live life this way it must be wrong
So it's divorce or destroy...
Yes in my heart there's no love left for you



I'll Follow You (Up to Our Cloud)

length: 2:54
But I won't go we've just started and I just can't leave you here all alone
So my life must go on living my heart must keep on beating true somehow
I'll let go when you leave me then I'll follow you on up to our cloud
[ piano ]
My arms will hold you all your lifetime my love for you will always keep them strong
I'll let go when it's your time and you'll never be alone for very long
Then my life can stop its living my heart can stop its beating and rest now
Then I'll let go cause you'll be with me and I'll follow you on up to our cloud
Yes I'll follow you on up to our cloud



Just Like Me

length: 2:38
I just stop in here to drink one beer and get my story straight
And to make sure there's no lipstick on my shirt
I don't know why I worry so she knows I'm working late
And on Wednesday night she always goes to church
I've heard it said when people live together for so long
They often start to look and act alike
And it never really mattered just how much of this was truth
Till I caught her acting just like me tonight
From a booth back in the corner came a laughter so familiar
And a sight that knocked me right down to my knees
Often looks can be deceiving but if seeing is believing
Then she's finally started acting just like me
Often looks can be deceiving

She

length: 2:23
She is just someone to wash your dirty clothes
Someone who never knows where all your money goes
She is just someone to teach the children right from wrong
And you never know how much she means until she is gone
She is just someone to cook all your meals
And act like you're a millionaire though you can't pay the bills
She is just someone to answer the telephone
And you never know how much she means until she is gone
And she's gone for good cause I was bad
Now everything I have is gone cause she was all I had
She is just someone to give me love and keep me warm
And you never know how much she means until she is gone

All I Can Give You Is My Heart

length: 2:45
Well I hope someday that I'll make you a million
Cause right now all that I can give you is my heart
But I've got two arms that were made just to hold you tight
And a real love to keep you satisfied
And I've got two lips that are just for kissing yours goodnight
And these two eyes that will never see you cry
I'd like to give you diamond rings from the start
But right now all that I can give you is my heart
Your love can't be bought for any price I know
Though I'd give anything to call you mine
But thank God you want me for just what I am
Cause right now all that I can give you is my heart
Right now all that I can give you is my heart



Big Fool of the Year

length: 2:42
All the big fools in town got together every hopeless loving heart I know was there
We all sat around and told our own sad stories
Then they made me the big fool of the year
Oh they gave to me a little golden statue of the torch that I carry for you dear
They said no one else could even come close to me
And that I was the big fool of the year
I'll put my love beside any foolish heart in town
For there's none can hold a light to this torch I carry round
I can't say that I'm too proud of the honor but then I guess I do deserve it dear
For to love you after all you've made me suffer
Surely makes me the big fool of the year
You have made me the big fool of the year

I Hope It Rains Today

length: 2:34
I heard you call my name saw you standing at the door
I reached out to hold you but you faded away
And the mood I'm in I hope it rains today
Your lips were there in the shadows warm and sweet
I tried to run to them but I had shackles on my feet
I heard you laughing at me in that old familiar way
And the mood I'm in I hope it rains today
I hope the clouds will cover up the sky
I don't want somebody's happy sunshine shining in my eyes
Our love was just a dream I couldn't make it stay
And the mood I'm in I hope it rains today and the mood I'm in I hope it rains today
