She Don't Know

length: 3:22

Only a memory this morning
My baby up and walked away
In my heart the tears keep pouring
She left with so much more to say

[Chorus]
She don't know whose heart she's breaking
She don't know my dream lies still
She don't know how much she's taking
She don't know and never will

I can't sleep, I've gotta find her
I've got to make her understand
Although another love may bind her
No one can love her like I can

[Chorus: x2]

She don't know (she don't know)
She don't know (she don't know)
She don't know (she don't know)

With You

length: 4:43
I can just see us now
You and me paintin' the town
Forever just foolin' around
With you

Just think of the things we'd do
Baby just me and you
My heart can finally be true
With you

[Chorus]
With you
And you with me
Is all that I can see
It ain't no mystery
I long to always be
With you
With you
I wanna be with you

I see you in every dream
Girl in my eyes you're queen
My happiness you could bring
With you

So what are you waitin' on
Just say the word and we're gone
I'll be right where I belong
With you

[Chorus]

Oh, darlin'
I'm so in love with you
I'll keep on callin'
'Til you make my dream come true

I can just see us now
You and me paintin' the town
Forever just foolin' around
With you

Just you
Just you and me, baby
I wanna be with you
Just you, baby
I wanna be with just you
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be with you, baby
I wanna be with you
Just you and me, baby

Savannah

length: 3:19
Do you ever think of me
When you lay your head down
Do you ever think of me
When he ain't around

Do you ever wonder why
Our love couldn't be
Ever since you said goodbye
Do you ever think of me

[Chorus]
Savannah
The memory just won't fade
Savannah
I sure wish you'd stayed with me
Savannah

Do you ever see my face
In your new lover's eyes
Has my memory been erased
Am I out of your life

I still remember our first night
We made love so tenderly
So when he doesn't hold you right
Do you ever think of me

[Chorus]

If he ever lets you down
Happiness just can't be found
I'll still be here hangin' 'round
Savannah

Savannah
(Do you ever think of me)
Savannah
(Do you ever think of me)

Colder Than Winter

length: 4:25
composer: Vince Gill
lyricist: Vince Gill
It's colder than winter
Right here in my heart
Lord I'm gonna miss her
She's torn me apart

I couldn't make you love me
I couldn't give any more
It's colder than winter
Since you closed the door

It's colder than winter
I'm freezing inside
And my tears won't be bitter
Even though our love died

I couldn't make you love me
I couldn't give any more
It's colder than winter
Since you closed the door

Every time the sun sets
I shed another tear
And the lonelier I get
Wishing you were still here

I couldn't make you love me
I couldn't give any more
It's colder than winter
Since you closed the door

True Love

length: 4:02
No one ever told me
During all those tears I cried
That one day you would hold me
I just kept hoping inside

True love was waiting
True love would find me in time
True love was waiting
Your love would finally be mine

No one ever showed me
Such care and tenderness
Baby you know me
And what moves me the best

It's true love waiting
It's true love making up for lost time
It's true love waiting
Your love it's finally mine

And I can't erase these lines on my face
But I'd turn back time if I could
But all the years wanting, the desperate longing,
Are maybe what makes this so good

True love, waiting
True love that found us in time
True love is waiting
Your love is finally mine

True love is waiting
Your love is finally mine

If It Weren't for Him

length: 3:33
performer: Rosanne Cash
If she'd only knew what I was thinking
If she'd only knew what was in my head
Why can't she see my heart is breaking
She'd be mine if it weren't for him.

So many times I dreamed I had her
I call her name when I lay down
Still I can't learn to live without
Her jealous heart is all I found.

See your face would be my destiny
Now I won't take what you can give to me
This lonely place is all I hope to find
If it weren't for him then you'd be mine.

If he'd only knew what I was thinking
If he'd only knew what was in my head
Why can't he see my heart is breaking
He'd be mine if it weren't for him.

You'd be mine if it weren't for him

Ain't It Always That Way

length: 3:51
I took chance, I took a fall
Waited on love 'til I could give it my all
Then I let my heart fly

Took a rose to her door
Stood there like a statue just sort of frozen by her presence
But I shied

[Chorus]
Ain't it always that way
When you want to believe
Ain't it always that way
When you want and you need
Ain't it always that way
When you want to rely
Ain't it always that way
When you want and you need and you cry

Yes and then I took a space out of time
I don't wanna sound like a thief but the moment was mine
And I stole it, it felt right

I took a chance, took a fall
Waited on love until I could give it my all
Then I let my heart fly

[Chorus]

Ain't it always that way
When you want to believe
Ain't it always that way
When you want and you need and you cry

Oklahoma Borderline

length: 3:39
Well it's rainin' down in Houston
And I got holes in both my shoes
Baby's put me on the street
She says "I'm through with you"

She thinks I'm gonna miss her
Someone tell her that she's wrong
I'm goin' back to Oklahoma, boys
'Cause that's where I belong

I need one good ride
I'll be satisfied
Come on Oklahoma borderline
If we roll all night
She'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline

Well now I don't need no Texas girl
Doggin' me around
I may be a Okie, son
But I've still been to town

Well those Oklahoma city girls
They always treat you right
Well tell mama that I'm comin' home (not sure of this line...)
And I'm leavin' out tonight

I need one good ride
I'll be satisfied
Come on Oklahoma borderline
If we roll all night
She'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline

So with two bucks in my pocket
And my thumb stuck in the wind
When I cross Red River, boys
I won't be back again

Give me old back roads and truck stops
And 18 wheels that whine
And some good ol' boy to take me
To that Oklahoma line

I need one good ride
I'll be satisfied
Come on Oklahoma borderline
If we roll all night
She'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline

I caught one good ride
She's comin' into sight
Hello Oklahoma borderline
