Everybody's Sweetheart

length: 2:52

When I told my baby
Do what you wanna do
Well I had no idea
Just what she'd put me through

Every night she's runnin' 'round
Singin' songs in your hometown
There ain't no one to love me
When the sun goes down

[Chorus]
Well, she's everybody's sweetheart
Everybody's sweetheart but mine
I shoulda kept her barefoot
Barefoot and pregnant all the time
I used to be the first in line
Now I've fallen way behind
She's everybody's sweetheart
Everybody's sweetheart but mine

All that country club money
Lord it sure looked good to me, yeah it did
Playin' golf with those fat cats
How much better could life be
They all think I've got it made
They see your face on every page
Of every magazine
Across the USA

[Chorus]

If you see her tell her hi
And everything will be all right
Tell her that I love her
'Til the day I die

[Chorus]

Come on home

The Way Back Home

length: 3:56
A little girl was crying for her mama and her daddy
She couldn't understand why they were gone
She never knew the danger of talking to a stranger
Now the girl can't find her way back home

A little boy went walking down to the corner market
To buy a loaf of bread and an ice cream cone
He never knew the danger of talking to a stranger
Now the boy can't find the way back home

Too many kids are missing, is anybody listening?
Won't you be the children's eyes they're all alone

The hardest part's not knowing
Where they are or where they're going
Won't you help the children find
The way back home

The faces on milk cartons thrown away and soon forgotten
What if one of those sweet kids was your very own
Tonight those kids are weeping while yours are safely sleeping
Won't you help the children find the way back home

Too many kids are missing, is anybody listening?
Won't you be the children's eyes they're all alone

The hardest part's not knowing
Where they are or where they're going
Won't you help the children find
The way back home
Won't you help the children find
The way back home

Cinderella

length: 3:36
composer: Reed Nielsen
lyricist: Reed Nielsen
Say you're sorry
You still care
She came by my place again
Cryin' about you man
You should love her
Twice as much
I try to remember you're a friend
But it's gettin' a little rough

She's just tired
Of bein' Cinderella
She can't live that way no more
She needs a little affection
A little understanding
You better be careful 'Cause the next time she comes to my door
She won't be a Cinderella no more

A teardrop trembled
On her face
Where that smile always was
It seemed out of place
And when I held her
Like a friend
I could feel a sweet beginning
But taste a bitter end

She's just tired
Of bein' Cinderella
She can't live that way no more
She needs a little affection
A little understanding
You better be careful 'Cause the next time she comes to my door
You'll be sorry

'Cause it seems like
It's always something with you
And everybody's always wrong
One of these nights
You'll reach for the pillow she sleeps on
And she's gonna be gone

She's just tired
Of bein' Cinderella
She can't live that way no more
She needs a little affection
A little understanding
You better be careful 'Cause the next time she comes to my door
You'll be sorry

Let's Do Something

length: 3:20
Nothin' to do in this lonely town
Your daddy warned me, "Son, you come around"
Says I ain't good enough for you
He don't know what I'm goin' through

Let's do something
Sneak out your bedroom window, girl
And we'll be gone
Let's do something
Oh, baby, let's do something
Even if it's wrong

Go see the preacher 'cross the couty line
For 25 dollars he could make you mine
My heart's on fire, can't you feel it burn
I'm past the point of no return

Let's do something
Sneak out your bedroom window, girl
And we'll be gone
Let's do something
Oh, baby, let's do something
Even if it's wrong

I'll make your daddy understand
Oh, Lord, I know I can make him understand
I'll face your daddy man to man
No guts, no glory, girl, I'll take that chance

Let's do something
Sneak out your bedroom window, girl
And we'll be gone
Let's do something
Oh, baby, let's do something
Even if it's wrong

Let's do something
Sneak out your bedroom window, girl
And we'll be gone
Let's do something
Oh, baby, let's do something
Even if it's wrong

The Radio

length: 4:05
There's a long white line stretching out on the road ahead
And there ain't one magazine that I ain't read
I haven't seen you in weeks but I hear you on the radio
Singing soft and low

We're so far apart
This old highway ain't home
When the heartache starts
I just turn the radio on

There never seems to be time for me and you
That's a price you pay for the life you choose
Tonight's the loneliest night I've ever known
It just goes on and on

We're so far apart
This old highway ain't home
When the heartache starts
I just turn the radio on

It does my heart good to see you shine
So I'll just keep on counting these white lines
I haven't seen you in weeks but I hear you on the radio
Calling me back home

We're so far apart
This old highway ain't home
When the heartache starts
I just turn the radio on

Baby That's Tough

length: 3:36
I know I've said I've changed for you
But I think I've changed my mind
I can't be what you want me to
And we're just wastin' time

And I'm doing the best I can
Remember I'm just a man
And my best thing good in love
Baby that's tough, baby that's tough

I'm doing the best I can
Remember I'm just a man
And my best thing good in love
Baby that's tough, baby that's tough

Well, I'm doing the best I can
Remember I'm just a man
And my best thing good in love
Baby that's tough, baby that's tough...

Losing Your Love

length: 4:45
writer: Hank DeVito, Rhonda Kye Fleming, Vince Gill
Stars are falling from your eyes
You don't feel what I feel inside
Your hand is warm but your heart is cold
If you're hurtin' you don't let it show

How much longer can we go on
Actin' like there's nothin' wrong
How much farther can we drift apart
Before all the feeling is gone

[Chorus]
I'm losing your love
It's slippin' away
Minute by minute
Day by day
Losing your love
Don't you think I know
It's a matter of time
'Til you let go

I see the moon shinin' up above
Reminded me how good it was
There's a chill comin' over me
Why can't it be like it used to be

I feel so helpless, I can't make you stay
No matter how hard I try
I can't deny that look in your eyes
Tryin' to tell me goodbye

[Chorus]

Don't let go
Don't let go
Don't let go
Don't let go

It Doesn't Matter Any More

length: 3:37
There you go now baby
Here am I well you
Left me here so I could
Sit and cry
Golly gee what have you
Done to me
Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

Do you remember baby
Last September, how you
Held me tight
Each and every night
Ooh how you
Drove me crazy
Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

[Chorus]
There's no use in me a cryin' and I've
Done everything and now I'm sick of tryin'
I've thrown away my nights
Wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way baby
And I'll go mine
Now and forever
'Til the end of time
Well I find somebody new baby
We'll say we're through
And you won't matter anymore

[Chorus]

Now you go your way baby
And I'll go mine
Now and forever
'Til the end of time
Well I find somebody new baby
We'll say we're through
And you won't matter anymore

You won't matter anymore
You won't matter anymore

Something's Missing

length: 4:30
The street looks different tonight
Something has changed
I had this picture in mind
But it's just not the same

Had this great expectation
About a heart that's free
I thought that's what I wanted
Would be waiting for me

[Chorus]
Baby something's missing tonight
Something ain't feeling right
Baby something's wrong and I'm so confused
Baby something's missing inside
Something I can't find in the night
I finally realized what I'm missing is you

In this crowd of old friends
Why do I feel alone
I thought I'd fall back in step
This is where I belong

I thought that freedom was a voice
Calling from the dark
Now I see I was only free
When you were in my heart

[Chorus]

I thought that freedom was a voice
Calling from the dark
Now I see I was only free
When you were in my heart

[Chorus]
