The Tennessee Waltz

length: 3:03
conductor: Jack Rael
orchestra: Jack Rael Orchestra
lyricist: Redd Stewart
composer: Pee Wee King

I was dancing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darling the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

I was dancing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darling the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Would I Love You (Love You, Love You)

length: 2:56
Oh, for just the chance to love you
Would I love you, love you, love you
To take you in my arms
Has always been my goal
Sure as there's a moon above you
Would I love you, love you, love you
With all my heart and soul
With all my heart and soul

You ask me, would I love you if you let me
Eyes that see are eyes that know
Would I love you? What a question
When I'm yearning so

Oh, for just the chance to love you
Would I love you, love you, love you
To take you in my arms
Has always been my goal
Sure as there's a moon above you
Would I love you, love you, love you
With all my heart and soul
With all my heart and soul

Mockin' Bird Hill

composer: Vaughn Horton
lyricist: Vaughn Horton
CHORUS
Tra-la-la, tweedlee dee dee it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockin' bird's trill
Tra-la-la, tweedlee dee dee
There's peace and goodwill
You're welcome as the flowers on Mockin'bird Hill

When the sun in the mornin' peeps over the hill
And kisses the roses 'round my windowsill
Then my heart fills with gladness when I hear the trill
Of those birds in the treetops on Mockin'bird Hill

CHORUS:



When it's late in the evenin' I climb up the hill
And survey all my kingdom while everything's still
Only me and the sky and an old whippoorwill
Singing songs in the twilight on Mockin'bird Hill


CHORUS X 3 with FADE on third

END OF PAGE'S VERSION

It has been reported (but I can't confirm) that other versions may contain an
Additional verse:

Got a three cornered plow and an acre to till
And a mule that I bought for a ten dollar bill
There's a tumble-down shack and a rusty old mill,
But it's my home sweet home up on Mockin'bird Hill

And So to Sleep Again

length: 2:56
composer: Joe Marsala, Sunny Skylar
And so to sleep again, as if I'll ever sleep again.
These restless nights go on away from you;
And so to dream again, as if I'll ever dream again.
My darling since you're gone, my dreams are through.
No other arms can ease this ache within my heart;
No other lips can kiss away these tears that start.

And so to sleep again, as if I'll ever sleep again,
As if I'll ever love again anyone but you.

No other arms can ease this ache within my heart;
No other lips can kiss away these tears that start.

And so to sleep again, as if I'll ever sleep again,
As if I'll ever love again anyone but you.

Mister and Mississippi

length: 3:10
I can't recall my mother
I don't remember dad
Mister and Mississippi was all I ever had
Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

My cradle was the river
My school a river boat
My teacher was a gambler
The slickest one afloat
My teacher was a gambler
The slickest one afloat
He taught me not to gamble on a petticoat

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Oh, darlin' how I love you
What more is there to say
I love you like a barefoot girl
Loves the summer day
The way a wanderin' gypsy
Loves the changing sea
Just like the restless river
Loves old New Orleans

I love a tiny village
A quiet country town
A house, a little garden
With kiddies runnin' 'round
You'd be a faithful husband
I'd be a trusty friend
Until I heard that steamboat
Comin' 'round the bend

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Come What May

length: 2:12
A gypsy with a crystal ball to gaze in
Can look into the future, so they say
But I am so afraid of fortunetellers
To know the truth might cast my world away

Now, just suppose I called upon a gypsy
To find you're gonna break my heart some day
So, darling, I'm confessing, not knowing it's a blessing
So you can keep me guessing, come what may

A gypsy with a crystal ball to gaze in
Can look into the future, so they say
But I am so afraid of fortunetellers
To know the truth might cast my world away

Now, just suppose I called upon a gypsy
To find you're gonna break my heart some day
So, darling, I'm confessing, not knowing it's a blessing
So you can keep me guessing, come what may

These Things I Offer You

length: 2:21
A heart that longs for you
Two arms that will be true
These things I offer you
For a lifetime

Two lips with one desire
To set your heart afire
These things I offer you
For a lifetime

A cozy little nest
Just meant for us to share
Perhaps a tiny guest
Will be arriving there

My life, my love, my whole
Are at your beck and call
These things I offer you
For a lifetime

These things I offer you
For a lifetime
These things I offer you
For a lifetime

A cozy little nest
Just meant for us to share
Perhaps a tiny guest
Will be arriving there

My life, my love, my whole
Are at your beck and call
These things I offer you
For a lifetime

Down the Trail of Aching Hearts

length: 2:57
