Big Love

length: 3:41
composer: Jeff Stevens, Michael Clark

(Michael Clark/Jeff Stevens)

You need a man to get lost in
With a heart big enough to roam
No more fences for you to look through
With your heart caught in a strangle hold
I've got a love full of wide open spaces

I've got a big love
Wild and free
Room to grow
As big as your dreams
Deep as a river in a raging flood
As endless as the stars above
I've got a big love

When two hearts make a stand together
On the solid rock of trust
They could be a million miles from each other
And still be side by side in love
I want to love you like that forever

I've got a big love
Wild and free
Room to grow
As big as your dreams
Deep as a river in a raging flood
As endless as the stars above
I've got a big love

You never dreamed you could have all you ever wanted
Darlin' you can have it all with me

I've got a big love
Wild and free
Room to grow
As big as your dreams
Deep as a river in a raging flood
As endless as the stars above
I've got a big love
I've got a big love

I've got a big love
I've got a big love

Cowgirl

length: 2:50
Well my car broke down outside of town
Up ahead I saw a farm
Some white-faced heifers chewing on that cud
Thought cows can't do no harm

Lackin' better sense I jumped the fence
And went crashin' through the corn
From the corner of my eye
I wondered why one of them cows had horns

Well he seemed to be approachin' me at quite a rapid pace
Does he want me to pet him or does he just want to race
Next thing I knew the sky's so blue and I'm up above the trees
And I'm face down layin' on the ground starin' up at somebody's knees

And I said...with calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl
They don't make calves like that in town
She had a big ol' hat and big blue eyes and blond curls
With calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl

Now I'm her man and she's my girl and we're livin' on the farm
We spend all day makin' hay out behind the barn
Well our little boy wants to grow up and be exactly just like me
But our little girl says hey you all I wonder what I'll be

And I said with calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl
They don't make calves like that in town - no they don't
She had a big ol' hat and big blue eyes and blond curls
With calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl

With calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl
They don't make calves like that in town
She had a big ol' hat and big blue eyes and blond curls
With calves like that you gotta be a cowgirl

Good Ol' Fashioned Love

length: 3:02
The kind of love that I've been lookin' for
I'm not sure they make it anymore
It's easy to fall for a pretty smile
It works real good for a while
'Til the new wears off
And it starts to fall apart

I want a well-made out-of-style
Good ol' fashioned love
The kind that stays together
When the going gets too tough
I don't want a new love
They just don't last long enough
I want a well-made out-of-style
Good ol' fashioned love

I know it's a rare thing now to find
But I just don't want any other kind
A love like that's worth the sacrifice
If the heart's been broken
I can fix it up
All I need is someone like me

Who wants a well-made out-of-style
Good ol' fashioned love
The kind that stays together
When the going gets too tough
I don't want a new love
They just don't last long enough
I want a well-made out-of-style
Good ol' fashioned love
I want a well-made out-of-style
Good ol' fashioned love

Don't Take Her She's All I Got

length: 3:28
(Jerry Williams/Gary U.S. Bonds)

Well I said friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
Please don't take her love away from me
I'm beggin' you friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
She's everything in life I'll ever need

She is life when I want to live
She's everything to me in life that life can give
She's my water when I need a drink
She's the first thought in my mind
Each time I try to think

Let me tell you now friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
Please don't take her love away from me
I'm beggin' you friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
She's everything in life I'll ever need

She's my fingers when I want to feel
She's the only thing in life to me that's really real
She is love she's all the love I know
She could kiss the ground in wintertime
And make a flower grow

Let me tell you now friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
Please don't take her love away from me
I'm beggin' you friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
She's everything in life I'll ever need

Let me tell you now friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
Well I said friend
Don't take her she's all I've got
I'm beggin' you friend
Don't take her she's all I've got

If I Stay

length: 3:11
(Dean Dillon/Larry Bastian)

Lately the ties that bind
Feel like a noose around my neck
Chokin' the life from me
And leavin' my dreams gaspin' for breath
I've lost sight and so have you
Of the man you were attracted to
We lost me somewhere along the way
And I can't live like this no more
Knowing just outside that door
There's a road that leaves this all behind

There's a half a tank of freedom in my Chevy and I'm leavin'
And there's nothin' in this world you can say
So don't insist on standin' in my way
I can't find me if I stay

If you really love me if you care at all
You'll gladly step aside
I've given you the best of me and now the rest of me
Is gonna take a ride
There's a gravel road that turns into a two-lane blacktop highway
That stretches out for miles and miles and miles
And the mileposts and the road signs are pointin' out a white line
To a man I haven't been in quite awhile

There's a half a tank of freedom in my Chevy and I'm leavin'
And there's nothin' in this world you can say
So don't insist on standin' in my way
I can't find me if I stay
I can't find me if I stay
I can't find me if I stay
I can't find me if I stay

Don't Love Make a Diamond Shine

length: 3:21
Tommy and Janey hardly eighteen
Holdin' hands at the jewelry store
Eyes open wide starin' inside
At the ring that they wanted for her
Mister bring it closer mister can we hold it
I think it's gonna fit just fine
As he slipped it on her hand Janey kissed her man
Don't love make a diamond shine

Don't love make a diamond shine
It don't matter if it costs a dime
Dang thing looks like a million bucks
Sittin' on the hand of a girl in love
A perfect fifteen carat is duller than dirt if the heart don't wear it
With three little words it'll knock you blind
Don't love make a diamond shine

There's a rich lady with a new Mercedes
Livin' up in a high rise
She got a big ol' rock on her left hand
That looks cheaper than a Cracker Jack prize
'Cause her man don't know that it ain't the dough
You know all he needs to spend is time
And that big marquis'd be a laser beam
Don't love make a diamond shine

Don't love make a diamond shine
It don't matter if it costs a dime
Dang thing looks like a million bucks
Sittin' on the hand of a girl in love
A perfect fifteen carat is duller than dirt if the heart don't wear it
With three little words it'll knock you blind
Don't love make a diamond shine

Don't love make a diamond shine
It don't matter if it costs a dime
Dang thing looks like a million bucks
Sittin' on the hand of a girl in love
A perfect fifteen carat is duller than dirt if the heart don't wear it
With three little words it'll knock you blind
Don't love make a diamond shine
Don't love make a diamond shine

Tuscon Too Soon

length: 3:23
Tonight on a plane bound for Dallas
I see the bright lights of Tucson below
Shining on all of the memories
I thought I'd finally let go
It's been almost a year now
Since I told her I could not stay
And this achin' in my heart that I'm feelin' now
Is the price I guess I'll have to pay

For leavin' Tucson too soon
At the time it was something that I just had to do
But tonight face to face with that old desert moon
It seems I left Tucson too soon

From thirty-five thousand feet up in the sky
The truth becomes clearer you know
'Cause it wasn't till now that I realized
The fool that I was long ago

For leavin' Tucson too soon
At the time it was something that I just had to do
But tonight face to face with that old desert moon
It seems I left Tucson too soon
It seems I left Tucson too soon

I Don't Believe That's How You Feel

length: 2:49
I don't believe that's how you feel
I don't believe that you don't love me
Guess I must have hurt you bad
I didn't mean to make you sad
And I sure regret the things I told you now

I don't believe that we're all through
I don't believe that's it's all over
Let's forget who's right or wrong
And remember we belong together

Let's forgive and forget and start over
We all make mistakes now and then
I don't want to love any other
I just want to love you again

Let's forgive and forget and start over
We all make mistakes now and then
I don't want to love any other
I just want to love you again

I don't believe that's how you feel
I don't believe that you don't love me
Guess I must have hurt you bad
I didn't mean to make you sad
And I sure regret the things I told you now

Guess I must have hurt you bad
I didn't mean to make you sad
And I sure regret the words I told you now

Driving Me Out of Your Mind

length: 3:20

(Mark Nesler)

He's driving me out of your mind
You're goin' crazy over him I see the signs
He won't leave you alone he's with you all the time
Driving me out of your mind

Can't he see that you still haven't gotten over me
And you're just not in the mood for company
Is he really fool enough to think he has a chance
Buyin' one red rose and asking you to dance

He's driving me out of your mind
You're goin' crazy over him I see the signs
He won't leave you alone he's with you all the time
Driving me out of your mind

A broken heart like yours can't possibly mend overnight
So why's he out there holding you so tight
Thought I'd have all the time I need to make up for my wrongs
Someone tell me what the hell is going on

He's driving me out of your mind
You're goin' crazy over him I see the signs
He won't leave you alone he's with you all the time
Driving me out of your mind
He won't leave you alone he's with you all the time
Driving me out of your mind
Driving me out of your mind



I Love You, That's All

length: 3:26

(Chris Crawford/Tom Kimmel)

I don't need to go on pretending
I don't need the key to your door
Why would I leave goodbye open-ended
That's not what goodbye is for

Now I don't have one thing against you
You're breakin' my heart not the law
The angel I made you into had to fall
I'll miss you I love you that's all

Sometimes I get sentimental
But what would I say if I called
I feel like I'm caught in the middle
Somewhere between flyin' and takin' a fall

Now I don't have one thing against you
You're breakin' my heart not the law
The angel I made you into had to fall
I'll miss you I love you that's all

Now I don't have one thing against you
You're breakin' my heart not the law
The angel I made you into had to fall
It's over I love you that's all
I'll miss you I love you that's all



Lifestyles of the Not So Rich and Famous

length: 2:52
(Byron Hill/Wayne Tester)

Honey they're bringin' out a TV crew
They want to do a story 'bout me and you
They'll be stringin' up bright lights in the backyard
There'll be cameras on their shoulders
We'll be readin' cue cards
Leave them long johns on the line
If the kids look dirty, that'll be just fine

They're gonna put us on
Lifestyles of the not so rich and famous
They want to see us go hog wild
Over beans and barbecue
They want to see my Fairlane up on blocks
The holes in all our socks
Talkin' 'bout lifestyles of the not so rich and famous

Tell 'em bout your mama and the bowling league
Tell 'em bout junior and his baseball team
I'll show 'em my nine point buck on the wall
I'll blow a few times on my new duck call
Let 'em see ol' blue how he sleeps all day
We'll bring out the Elvis TV trays

They're gonna put us on
Lifestyles of the not so rich and famous
They want to see us go hog wild
Over beans and barbecue
They want to see my Fairlane up on blocks
The holes in all our socks
Talkin' 'bout lifestyles of the not so rich and famous

Yeah our idea of high class livin'
Is sittin' on the porch on a cool night
Our Champagne and Caviar
Is an RC cola and a moon pie

I'm talkin' 'bout lifestyles of the not so rich and famous Lifestyles of the not so rich and famous

The Keeper of the Stars

length: 4:16
It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
