If It Will It Will

length: 3:22
When I was a boy in school
Learning the Golden Rule
I had a crush on my teacher
She was a beautiful creature

When I look at kids today
I think of how we used to play
She taught all us boys and girls
This little song about the real, real world
She said now class

If it will it will, and if it won't it won't
If it does it does, yeah if it don't it don't
Some days are good some bad you know
That's the way it goes

Give the wheel of life a spin, see where it lands
Let your spirit fly free, enjoy yourself while you can
Don't be in a hurry and don't ever make plans

'Cause if it will it will, and if it won't it won't
If it does it does, hey if it don't it don't
Life is not always so smooth

And Murphy's Law is gonna rule

You know the river's gonna flow, wherever it wants to go
And if the rain wants to fall, you can't stop it at all
No one has ever had control over this world, don't you know?

'Cause if it will it will, and if it won't it won't
(If it will it will, if it won't it won't)
If it does it does, and if it don't it don't
(If it does it does, if it don't it don't)
Life is not always so smooth
And Murphy's Law is gonna rule

'Cause if it will it will, and if it won't it won't
(If it will it will, if it won't it won't)
If it does it does it does, if it don't it don't
(If it does it does, if it don't it don't)
No one has ever had control over this old world don't you know, ain't it so?

(If it will it will, if it won't it won't)
(If it does it does, if it don't it don't)

Angels Are Hard to Find

length: 3:24
composer: Jack Campbell
lyricist: Jack Campbell
Lord I'm singing you this message up to heaven
asking you to send me down another angel.
I've been looking for along time for someone to get her off my mind,
but you know Lord, Angels are hard to find.


I want an angel with arms and not with wings.
Someone that I can call my darling.
If you can think of someone to fit that description,
Lord could you help me one more time.
But I know Lord, Angels are hard to find.


Its my fault I lost the first one you sent to me.
I didn't know 'til she was gone how much she mean't to me.
She loved me but I was blind.
I bet I do a whole lot better next time.
But I know Lord, Angels are hard to find.


I want an angel with arms and not with wings.
Someone that I can call darling.
If you can think of someone to fit my description,
Lord could you help ole Hank one more time,
but I know Lord, yeah angels are hard to find.
One like that right there Lord. Angels are hard to find

That'll Last Me Forever
And Enough Memories For One Man's Life (That Is True)
The One I Love
She Ain't Comin Back Ever
So It Looks Like I've Got My Future On Ice

Chrous:
I Got Bottles and Cans
That Just Left my Hand
And A Chill To Just The Right Fahrenheit
O Love Let me Down
Now A Truer Friend I've Found
Why I've Got My Future On Ice

There Was A Time
She Was my One and Only
Until Someone Else Caught Her Eye
Then For Awhile,
Can You Believe I Was Acting So Lonely?
Now I've Got My Future On Ice

Chrous:
I Got Bottles and Cans
That Just Left my Hands
And A Chill To Just The Right Fahrenheit
Yes Love Let me Down
Now a Truer Friend I Found
Now I've Got My Future On Ice

O Love Let Me Down
Now A Real True Friend I Found
Why I Got My Future On Ice

Honky Tonk Train

length: 3:32

I've been riding this train a long time
And I'm still trying to unwind
All my rowdy friends have settled down
I'm out on the road just looking around
For that engineer of love to set me free
'Cause I'm locked up in this world of misery

And we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Well here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Everybody's got problems that's no lie
Everybody's got somebody on their mind
They wanna get on board and just leave their problems behind
And their engines are burning hard for honky tonk wine
So I take my guitar and make that little string moan
And they're moving on down the line like Casey Jones

Yeah we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Yeah we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Can I ever get off this honky tonk train
Everynight I'm living a hard driving fast lane
Hard driving fast land
Riding the honky tonk train
Riding the honly tonk train

Well everybody outta have one a Hollywood honey to love

Oh How many of you girls out there wanna get close to me
Hold your hand up so I can see y'all standing there
I'm going out to find me a Hollywood honey to love

I'm going to a lake, I'm gonna find a Hollywood honey right away
Everybody outta have one, oh a Hollywood honey to love

Well the first California girl I saw really made me change my mind
In the movies they look so fine, just one thing to do
I'm going out and find me a Hollywood honey to love
When night time falls I'm gonna call a Hollywood honey to love

Hollywood! Hollywood! Hollywood honey to love

Just to Satisfy You

length: 3:14

Simple Man

length: 6:04
Mama told me when I was young
"Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this it will help you some sunny day"

"Oh, take your time, don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You'll find a woman and you'll find love
And don't forget, son, there is someone up above"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

"Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Oh yes, I will

"Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Baby, be a simple, really simple man
Oh, be something you love and understand
