Tracklist

I Quit

length: 2:34

When you said you were leavin'
I said here we go again
I ain't even breakin' even
In this game I just can't win

The cards are stacked against me
Your aces beat my twos
Seems like bad luck travels with me
Like I was born to lose

[Chorus]
I quit
I've had enough of fallin' in and out of love
I'm done, I'm through, that's it
If I can't have you, I quit

You were my only sunshine
In a world of pouring of pouring rain
So this will be my last time
I can't go through this again

[Chorus]

I'm done, I'm through, that's it If I can't have you, I quit

Look at Us

length: 4:01
Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all that we've been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other

If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us

Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
Look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin' in forever

If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us

In a hundred years from now
I know without a doubt
They'll all look back and wonder how
We made it all work out

Chances are
We'll go down in history
When they want to see
How true love should be
They'll just look at us

Take Your Memory With You

length: 2:35
I can read the writing on the wall
You pretend that nothing's changed at all
I've got just one thing to ask you if it's so
Just take your memory with you when you go

So I won't have to think about
The lonely nights I'll be without
Someone to hold me when the cold wind blows
Take your memory with you when you go

I walk the floor and wonder what went wrong
I'll have to find a way to carry on
Why don't you leave before the heartache starts to show
Take your memory with you when you go

So I won't have to think about
The lonely nights I'll be without
Someone to hold me when the cold wind blows
Take your memory with you
So I won't have to miss you
Take your memory with you when you go

Pocket Full of Gold

length: 4:06
He slipped the ring off his finger
When he walked in the room
And he found him some stranger
And promised her the moon
How many lies you must have told
You think you're a rich man
With your pocket full of gold

For another man's treasure
You'd say anything
But is one night of pleasure
Worth the trouble you'll bring
Don't look so surprised
'Cause son I should know
I once was a rich man
With my pocket full of gold

Some night you're gonna wind up
On the wrong end of a gun
Some jealous guy's gonna show up
And you'll pay for what you've done
What will it say on your tombstone
Here lies a rich man
With his pocket full of gold

Yeah, here lies a rich man
With his pocket full of gold

The Strings That Tie You Down

length: 3:41
You're so close to tellin' me you're leaving
Packin' up your things and leavin' town
If you can walk away the rest is easy
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

Just look me in the eye and say it's over
Just tell me you don't want me around
Once you say goodbye, it's gone forever
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

There's no way I can picture me without you
I still think of you in your wedding gown
If I have to give you up, may God be with you
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

Liza Jane

length: 2:55
You've got my number
You've got my name
So why don't you call me
Little Liza Jane

You've got that body
You've got that frame
So why don't you call me
Little Liza Jane

Girl I got it bad for you
There ain't nothin' I won't do
Just one kiss and I'll never be the same
Little Liza Jane, oh little Liza Jane

Now you've heard my story
You've got to know my name
So why don't you call me
Little Liza Jane

Girl I got it bad for you
There ain't nothin' I won't do
Just one kiss and I'll never be the same
Little Liza Jane, oh little Liza Jane

If I Didn't Have You in My World

length: 3:55
If I didn't have you in my world
What a lonely place my world would be
If I didn't have you in my world
I think I'd just pack up and leave

It seems like I've waited a lifetime
To find someone special like you
If you ever walked out of my life
I don't know what I would do

'Cause if I didn't have you in my world
What a lonely place my world would be
If I didn't have you in my world
I think I'd just pack up and leave

You gave me a reason for livin'
The first time I looked in your eyes
I shudder to think what might happen
If you ever told me goodbye

'Cause if I didn't have you in my world
What a lonely place my world would be
If I didn't have you in my world
I think I'd just pack up and leave

A Little Left Over

length: 2:08
I work my fingers to the bone
But you won't hear me cry and moan
A workin' man don't need no welfare line

Well I'll never be a millionaire
And frankly I don't even care
'Cause all I need to have a real good time

[Chorus]
Is a little left over
On Saturday night
If my bills are paid my plans are made
And everything's alright
Put on my ropers and them wranglers fittin' tight
Got a little left over
And it's Saturday night

I don't drink but I love to dance
With those sweet young things in their cowboy hats
These country girls will be the death of me
If that's the way I gotta go
Lord I hope I die real slow
'Till I do I'll tell you all I need

[Chorus]

What's a Man to Do

length: 3:13
Before the tears I've cried
Have even dried
She'll be with him
They'll look in each other's eyes
And with her lips still warm with lies
She'll kiss him

And though she knows she's wrong
She just keeps on
Keepin' me hangin' on
Tell me

[Chorus]
What's a man to do
When the one he's promised to
Finds somebody new
Should I just stand by
Watch the love I've lived for die
Lord I wish I knew
Tell me what's a man to do

Maybe I'll make a stand
Or should I just wash my hands
Of her forever
But I've never been alone
Except for here at home
When they're together

And though I know it's wrong
I let her go on
Keepin' me hangin' on

[Chorus]

Sparkle

length: 3:16
Sparkle, there’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Brighter than the lights in the city
It’s more than being pretty
The way you are inside

Why are you cryin’
Somebody’s tryin’
To be with you only all the time
You hide behind tears
Counting the fears
You’re so used to being alone

Sparkle, there’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Sparkle, you got a certain sparkle
I know I love somebody
I gotta let it show

(instrumental break)

Nobody knows you
They can’t get too close to
A girl who won’t let down her disguise
You won’t believe how much someone could love you
That someone is looking in your eyes

Sparkle, it’s gotta be a sparkle
For you to love somebody
For you to really know
Brighter than the lights of the city
It’s more than being pretty
It’s the way you feel inside
Sparkle

(instrumental chorus out)
