Don't Come Cryin' to Me

length: 3:08

Don't come cryin' to me when it's over
Don't you come knockin'' at my door
Don't come cryin' to me I won't be waiting
Like I've done a hundred times before

You promised you'd love me forever
Now it's all over town you've changed your mind
You'll call me and say "let's get together"
But I'm sorry I won't take you back this time

Don't come cryin' to me when it's over
Don't you come knockin'' at my door
Don't come cryin' to me I won't be waiting
Like I've done a hundred times before

Like I've done a hundred times before

If You Ever Have Forever in Mind

length: 4:40
You're climbing mountains, I'm on a hill
You're always running I'm standing still
You live for the moment, no future no past
I may be a fool to love by the rules and want it to last

[Chorus]
If you ever have forever in mind
I'll be here and easy to find
If your heart isn't ready to lay down with mine
If you ever have forever in mind

The music has ended still you want to dance
I know that feeling, I can't take that chance
You live for the moment no future no past
I may be a fool to love by the rules, I want it to last

[Chorus]

I Never Really Knew You

length: 2:17
[Chorus]
Well I never really knew you 'til you said goodbye
You said it's finally over, here's the reasons why
You said you've heard enough of all those little lies
I never really knew you 'til you said goodbye

I thought I made you happy but you've proved me wrong
I thought I was the one that really turned you on
When I came home tonight all my things were gone
I guess gettin' over me didn't take you long

[Chorus: x2]

Well, you said you'd heard enough of all those little lies
I never really knew you 'til you said goodbye
No I never really knew you 'til you said goodbye

Kindly Keep It Country

length: 3:12
If you're gonna play the jukebox
Would you kindly keep it country
‘Cause I'm feelin' so lonely tonight
Oh please play a sad song about a heart that's just been stepped on
Would you kindly keep it country for me tonight

I'd get up off this bar stool if you'd play something we could dance to
Oh, a song about a love that's gone astray
Oh I love to hear ‘em sing about the misery and pain
Would you kindly keep it country for me tonight

Oh please play a sad song about a heart that's just been stepped on
Would you kindly keep it country for me tonight
Would you kindly keep it country for me tonight

All Those Years

length: 4:01
Come on in and take your coat off
Come on in and sit down
If I seem a little nervous
I've been walkin' shaky ground

I've been alone since she left me
And I'm not quite sure what to do
So if I call her name I'm sorry
It's all those years are hard to lose

[Chorus]
All those years with just one woman
Was all gone in just a day
All those years with just one woman
Makes it hard to try to find a brand new way
After all those years

I guess I should take down her picture
And try to put your mind at ease
And tell myself it's really over
And put aside this misery

[Chorus]

I'll Take Texas

length: 2:08
When the Texas moon is shining down on Austin
When it shines across the Rio Grande
When it comes to makin' love
Under the stars above
Well honey I'll take Texas everytime

We danced in every ballroom down in Beaumont
And we strolled the river walk in San Antone
It's where we fell in love
Like to young turtle doves
Well honey I'll take Texas everytime

When it comes to makin' love
Under the stars above
Honey I'll take Texas
Honey I'll take Texas
Honey I'll take Texas
Honey I'll take Texas everytime

My Kind of Woman - My Kind of Man

length: 3:56
performer: Patty Loveless
You don't need diamonds or big fancy cars
You say you're happy right where you are
We're bound together by a little gold band
You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man

Oh, living without you is my only fear
You still drive me crazy when I hold you near
My body trembles with the touch of your hand
You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man

You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man
A match made in Heaven by God's gentle hands
I'll love you forever, together we'll stand
You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man

You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man
A match made in Heaven by God's gentle hands
I'll love you forever, together we'll stand
You're my kind of woman, you're my kind of man
You're my kind of woman and you're my kind of man

There's Not Much Love Here Anymore

length: 3:30
Rain rain come on down
You're so welcome at my door
Come on down and ease the pain
I never hurt this bad before

Tears keep falling from my eyes
And all I do is walk the floor
It's not too hard to realize
There's not much love here anymore

[Chorus: x3]
Rain rain come blowin' in
Come wash these tears away again
Leavin' has cut me to the core
There's not much love here anymore

Let Her In

length: 3:06
I didn't know how love would come around
Walked right up to me and knocked me down
I dropped straight down on my knees
Asked my little girl, honey won't you help me please

[Chorus:]
Let her in
Let my heart feel love again
Let her in
Don't you know how long it's been
Let her in
Let come and be my friend
Baby please won't you let her in

I know it's hard for you since your mama's been gone
It must be strange to see me carry on
Honey just try to understand
It takes to the love of a woman to complete the heart of a man

[Chorus x3]
Let her in
Let my heart feel love again
Let her in
Don't you know how long it's been
Let her in
Let come and be my friend
Baby please won't you let her in

The Hills of Caroline

length: 4:45
I was born in Guilford County
Way back up in the pines
It's where I hold the sweetest memories
In the hills of Caroline

My daddy wasn't much of nothin'
Spent his life doin' time
But mama learned me about Jesus
In the hills of Caroline

I met a girl her name was Hattie
Fair and tender, sweet and kind
She showed me how to love a woman
In the hills of Caroline

I always thought that we would marry
One sweet day she would be mine
But Hattie's gone, to live with Jesus
In the hills of Caroline

If I should die before tomorrow
Just one request if you don't mind
Just bury me right next to Hattie
In the hills of Caroline

Bury me right next to Hattie
In the hills of Caroline

Live to Tell It All

length: 3:38
True love is understated
True love is being known
Oh I've never felt so connected
And two hearts have found a home

[Chorus]
And no matter how we struggle
Oh I'll answer when you call
And we'll walk away from trouble
And live to tell it all

Safe in my arms I'll keep you
Never more to roam
And I promise to lay down beside you
When our names are carved in stone

[Chorus: x2]

What They All Call Love

length: 3:21
It ain't about you, it ain't about me
It's about this love we found that has to be
I never questioned that look in your eyes
And you never doubted how I felt inside

[Chorus]
We found passion and grace in each others face
And our heart's will now beat as one
For we both know a place where our souls have embraced
I think it's what they all call love

This gift you've given humbles me
True companions we'll always be
For so long we've waited to feel what we feel
We've finally tasted something that's real

[Chorus: x2]

I think it's what they all call love

The Key to Life

length: 4:06
All the songs that he taught me when I was a kid
John Henry, Ol' Shep and Faded Love
I Fall To Pieces and On The Wings Of A Dove

Just a few chords on the banjo that was all he knew
But in the eyes of a child, man his fingers flew
I practiced and I practiced til I got it right
Packed up everything and just took off one night

I made it from the beer joints to the Opry stage
He said the only difference is what you're gettin' paid
He didn't care that everybody knew my name
He said it's all for nothin' if you don't stay the same

But when he died the preacher cried and said he's the lucky one
He's walkin' hand in hand in hand with God's only son
My faith and common sense tell me the preacher's right
But I'd love to hear the banjo ring for me tonight

And I will honor my father with these words I write down
As long as I remember him he'll always be around
And the pain of losin' him cuts like a Randall knife
I learned a few chords on the banjo as the key to life

And the pain of losin' him cuts like a Randall knife
I learned a few chords on the banjo as the key to life
