Workin' on a Big Chill

length: 4:04

Here comes the weekend, sure could use
Some relaxation to shake these blues
Fill up the cooler with a little good cheer
Hand me my sun shades, I'm checkin' out of here

I'm workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
Lord, I'm workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
(Workin' on a big chill)

Hook up the camper, head for the lake
Sit on my tail bone, them fish can wait
Pick up my baby, she's going too
A little skinny dippin', Lord is good for you

I'm workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
I'm workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
(Workin' on a big chill)

Workin' on a

Now we ain't leavin' till the suds are gone
Call everybody, there's a party goin' on
Come Monday mornin', it's back to the grind
Come on baby, let's have a good time

We'll be workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
And we'll be workin', Lord, on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)

We'll be workin' on a big chill
(Workin', workin' on a big chill)
And we'll be workin', baby, on a big chill

Workin' on a
Workin' on a
Workin' on a

Love's Standin'

length: 4:06
Well, every morning when I wake up
And I see you without your makeup
And you still take me breath away

There ain't no grass that's any greener
I know there's nothing sweeter
Than how you make me feel this way

When I look in your eyes, any fool could realize
Love's standin' right in front of me

When the world's in such a hurry
But I don't have to worry
'Cause I found what they're lookin' for

She whispers, ?Baby, lay your head down?
Slips off that flannel nightgown
How could any man ever wish for more?

When I look in your eyes, any fool could realize
Love's standin' right in front of me
When I see your face and I know I've found my place
Love's standin' right in front of me

When I look in your eyes, any fool could realize
Love's standin' right in front of me
When I see your face and I know I've found my place
Love's standin' right in front of me

Love's standin' right in front of me, baby
And our love I see ain't goin' nowhere, baby
Love's standin' right in front of me

When I see your face and I know I've found my place
Love's standin' right in front of me

Cowboy Up

length: 4:01
I'm puttin' on my favorite cowboy boots
Like a crazy bull rider comin' out of the chute
I'm ready for some dancin', maybe too much beer
Little bare-back rubbin's goin' on in here

Hey little cowgirl, leave the Stetson on
Let's cowboy up and down, honey, all night long

She said her name was Levitra Marcantonio
I'm a bare back rider, okie, don't you know?
These frozen margaritas are goin' to my head
I could not believe it when Levitra said

?Hey Mr. Cowboy, come on and take me home
Gonna cowboy up and down, honey, all night long?

All night long, oh, you're comin' on strong
All night long, come on and do me wrong, do me wrong, baby

Hey little cowgirl, leave just your Stetson on
Gonna cowboy up and down, honey, all night long

Hey little cowgirl, leave just your Stetson on
Gonna cowboy up and down till Levitra's gone

Sweet Thing

length: 3:21
I'd be out runnin' most every night
We'd always wind up in one hell of a fight
The end is comin' there ain't no doubt
But there's just that one thing I can't live without

I won't try to stop you
I can't change your mind
It's been nice to know you
Could you leave that sweet thing behind?

You take the dishes, the silverware
Well, I'll keep the hound dog and this easy chair
Keep the Ranchero but that TV is mine
She said, "You can stick that clicker where the sun don't shine"

I know you're leaving
I can't change your mind
It's been nice to know you
Could you leave that sweet thing behind?

Well, that woman was real mean
My trailer park drama queen
I'm gonna have bad dreams
About missing that sweet thing
Oh Lord, I don't know what I am gonna do

Why's a tornado like a redneck divorce?
Either way somebody's bound to lose a mobile home of course
Well, that's my story, it's sad but true
I've only got one request of you

I know you're leaving
I can't change your mind
It's been nice to know you
Could you leave that sweet thing behind

Well, I know you're leaving, baby
I can't change your mind
It's been nice to know you
Could you leave that sweet thing behind?

Bet It All on You

length: 4:27
It feels like you're at the bottom of an avalanche
You sit and cry 'cause he don't ever wanna dance
Give me the dice, give me half a chance with you, baby

I look for you, just hoping you'll come in tonight
With that fool, the one who never treats you right
If you only knew how bad I burn inside for you, baby

Baby, I'll do just what I have to do
I'd beg, borrow, steal, cheat and lie for you
I'll put it all on the line if you ask me to

I'll bet it all on you
(Bet it all on you)
Every dime
(I'll bet it all on you)

Every time
(I'll bet it all on you)
I'll bet it all, babe
(I'll bet it all on you)

I think it's time for me to finally show my hand
This heart of mine has taken all that it can stand
But I ain't blind, I can see you want me too, baby

Come on, let's make a run for the parking lot
Can't wait, gotta give this thing a shot
I know it's crazy but we ain't got a thing to lose

Baby, I'll do just what I have to do
I'd beg, borrow, steal, cheat and lie for you
I'll put it all on the line if you ask me to

Oh, babe, I'll bet it all on you
(Bet it all on you)
Every dime
(I'll bet it all on you)

Every time
(I'll bet it all on you)
I'll bet it all on you, babe
(I'll bet it all on you)
I'll bet it all on you, girl

Baby, I'll do just what I have to do
Beg, borrow, steal, cheat and lie for you
I'll put it all on the line if you ask me to

I'll bet it all on you
(I bet it all on you)
Every dime
(I'll bet it all on you)

Every time
(I'll bet it all on you)
I'll bet it all on you
(I'll bet it all on you)

Oh, I'll bet it all on you, babe
(I'll bet it all on you)
Every time
(I'll bet it all on you)
Every time

I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you

I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you
I'll bet it all on you

Nothin' for a Broken Heart

length: 3:04
There ain't nothing in the bottom of your glass
For a broken heart
You were doing pretty good till she came
And tore your world apart
She found a little younger model
You ran straight for the bottle
There ain't nothing in the bottom of your glass
For a broken heart

Do you find yourself tossin' and a turnin'
In the middle of the night
With a cigarette burning
Staying up until the broad daylight
Well you gotta be going crazy
With another man lovin' on your baby
There ain't nothing in the middle of the night
For a broken heart

[Chorus]
There ain't never been a cure for the lowdown blues
When a woman puts on a pair of walking shoes
You ought to know by now
There's nothing, son, that you can do
For a broken heart

Ain't nothing when the morning finally comes
Gonna change a thing
A little hair of the dog ain't gonna hurt you
Have yourself a drink
She found another lover
I sure feel for you brother
Ain't nothing in the whole wide world for a broken heart

[Chorus]

Son of a Ramblin' Man

length: 2:46
Have you ever had a thing for a woman
A thing that makes you lose your mind?
Every time I start to think about her
Sends shivers up and down my spine

My daddy was a bit of a rounder
Said these women are gonna make you go blind
I told my old man that I'm right over here
Like the way I see just fine

I'm the son of a ramblin' man
Son of a runnin' kind
I'm the son of a ramblin' man
I come from a long, long line

Well, I'm just a hillbilly gypsy
I ain't much for settling down
If I thought somebody might miss me
Maybe I'd hang around

So I better keep on drifting
As every town just a little too small
Ain't nothin' in the world like a woman
I'm going to try to love them all

I'm the son of a ramblin' man
Son of a runnin' kind
I'm the son of a ramblin' man
I come from a long, long line

I'm the son of a ramblin' man
Son of a runnin' kind
I'm the son of a ramblin' man
I come from a long, long line

I'm the son of a ramblin' man
Son of a runnin' kind
I'm the son of a ramblin' man
I come from a long, long line

I'm the son of a ramblin' man
Son of a runnin' kind
I'm the son of a ramblin' man
I come from a long, long line

Smilin' Song

I've done some things that I hadn't oughta
Like coming home late with the preacher's daughter
I'd hit the back door seeing double
My ol' man waiting with a fistful of trouble

Sometimes you lose, sometimes you're a winner
You talk about love, I ain't no beginner
I'm a sucker for a juke joint jumpin'
I never stop chasin' the scent of the woman

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

I've been on top and I've hit the bottom
You talk about hard times Lord, I've got 'em
Just keep on runnin' and go in full of throttle
There ain't no answer in the bottom of a bottle

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

Come up smilin'

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
And I come up smilin' song

Oh, keep on smilin'
Oh, keep on smilin'

The Rhythm of the Pourin' Rain

length: 3:27
Bolt up the windows, lock all the doors
Try to remember what a body is for
There's bad weather comin', the red eye's runnin' red
Let's spend the weekend and never leave that bed

Turn out the lights like there's no one home
And cut the wires on the telephone
Our hearts are pounding like a hurricane
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain

Let's tell ol' Monday mornin', "Please don't come too soon"
The storm is still raging right here in this room
Oh, what a sweet way to spend our time
Still got a little taste of some real good wine

Turn out the lights like there's no one home
And cut the wires on the telephone
Our hearts are pounding like a hurricane
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain

Oh, what a feelin's gonna fill my brain
Next time the weatherman says it looks like rain?

Turn out the lights like there's no one home
And cut the wires on the telephone
Our hearts are pounding like a hurricane
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain

Turn out the lights like there's no one home
And cut the wires on the telephone
Our hearts are pounding like a hurricane
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain
Makin' love to the rhythm of the pourin' rain

Nothin' Left to Say

length: 3:57
I work my fingers to the bone
Just trying to keep up with the Jones
You call me on the telephone
Say baby hurry hurry home

Pour me a little splash of red
You look like you could raise the dead
Have you got something on your mind
Come on girl we're wasting time

(Chorus)
Just let your body do the talking
Don't let the words get in the way
Yeah I can tell the way you're walking
That you got nothing left to say

Ain't gonna watch the evening news
Cause I don't care who's shooting who
You're putting on my favorite shoes
About to do that thing you do

Ah let's do it all night long
Cause in the morning I'll be gone
If everything works out all right
Same place, same time tomorrow night

[Chorus]

Ain't got nothin' to say

[Chorus]

Yeah I can tell the way you're walking
That you got nothing left to say
Nothin' baby

What You Don't Say

length: 5:04

Sometimes this old world gets to me
And I sure can be a jerk
But you always see the best in me
God knows you've seen the worst

You know when to let me be
Pull yourself real close to me
And how to take my breath away

You don't care who's right or wrong
I know whose side you're on
It's more than the love that we make
It's what you don't say

Man, I should have been the death of me
I sure can run it in the ground
When you come lie here next to me
Girl, you bring me back around

You know when to let me be
Pull yourself real close to me
And how to take my breath away

You don't care who's right or wrong
I know whose side you're on
It's more than the love that we make
It's what you don't say

You know when to let me be
Pull yourself real close to me
And how to take my breath away

You don't care who's right or wrong
I know whose side you're on
It's more than the love that we make
It's what you don't say
It's what you don't say
It's what you don't say

The Reason Why

length: 2:51
Why do I, choose the things I choose,
Why do I, always find some lame excuse,
Why do I, not realize what I could do,
Oh, I wish I knew the reason why,

Why do you, get that sad look on your face,
Why do you, pull away from my embrace,
Why do you, see all my faults and my mistakes
Oh, I wish you knew the reason why,

Why do we, treat each other like we do,
It's like we never even try,
Why can't we, get back to the love we knew,
Oh why oh baby why,

Why do we, have to play those same old games,
Why do we, run away from who's to blame,
Can't they see, to lose this love would be ashame,
Oh I wish we knew the reason why,
Oh I wish we knew the reason why.

The Rock of Your Love

length: 3:52
I lose myself in this place
Strangest smile on my face
The hand of blessing or beginner's luck
Here I stand on the rock of your love

Somethin' steady sure feels good
I always knew somehow it would
I've traded chains for the wings of a dove
Standin' on the rock of your love

Let the storm clouds roll
Let the rain flood my soul
I'll still be here when the trouble's done
Standin' on the rock of your love

If this ol' world should fade away
If I've got you I ain't afraid
I will face whatever comes
Standin' on the rock of your love

Let the storm clouds roll
Let the rain flood my soul
I'll still be here when the trouble's done
Standin' on the rock of your love
I'll still be here when the trouble's done
Standin' on the rock of your love

What You Give Away

length: 4:53
You read the business page
See how you did today
You live up on the hill
You've got a view that kills
Never wonder why

[Bridge]
After you've counted everything you saved
Do you ever hit your knees and pray?
You know there's gonna be a judgment day
So what will you say?

[Chorus]
No matter what you make
All that you can take
Is what you give away
What you give away

There's people on the street
Ain't got enough to eat
You just shake your head
The measure of a man is one who lends a hand
That's what my father said

After you've counted everything you saved
Do you ever hit your knees and pray?
You know there's gonna be a judgment day
So what will you say?

[Chorus]

It's what you give away

After you've counted everything you saved
Do you ever hit your knees and pray?
You know there's gonna be a judgment day
So what will you say?

No matter what you make
All that you can take
Is what you give away

You know it's not too late
It's all for Heaven's sake
What you give away
What you give away
What you give away

Faint of Heart

length: 4:31
Love ain't for the faint of heart
Timid and the weak
Pour me one more on the rocks
And baby, we'll just see

We'll start a fire, you pour the wine
Slip on in to these arms of mine

Love ain't for the faint of heart
Love's for you and me

Ooh, what a rush when you kiss me that way
Ooh, your touch is gonna drive me crazy
Ooh, what a night this has been
Baby, let's do it again

Love ain't for the faint of heart
Love's for you and me

Ooh, what a rush when you kiss me that way
Ooh, your touch is gonna drive me crazy
Ooh, what a night this has been
Baby, let's do it again

Love ain't for the faint of heart
Love's for you and me

Love ain't for the faint of heart
Love's for you and me

Time to Carry On

length: 4:10
Painted as the victim
He said you caused it all
Lying to convince 'em
So you would take the fall

You walked out with nothin'
Hopin' for some peace of mind

The pain is almost over
The hurt is nearly gone
No more lookin' over your shoulder
It's time to carry on

The scars won't last forever
The truth will take their place
Angry words will be forgotten
Contempt will fade away

The promise of tomorrow
It will always remain

The pain is almost over
The hurt is nearly gone
No more lookin' over your shoulder
It's time to carry on

The promise of tomorrow
'T will always remain

The pain is almost over
The hurt is nearly gone
No more lookin' over your shoulder
It's time to carry on
It's time to carry on

No Easy Way

length: 3:41
From my room I can hear you laughing
You spend all your time with my best friend
Oh, I wish you knew how bad I've fallen for you
There's no way to know how things may end

Cause babe, I don't know where to start
Longing is the hardest part
There ain't no easy way into your heart

In my mind I can see us together
Crazy in love and paintin' the town
When you look at him I know there's no way I can win
I came running for you, would you turn me down?

Cause babe, I don't know where to start
Longing is the hardest part
There ain't no easy way into your heart

Babe, I don't know where to start
Longing is the hardest part
There ain't no easy way into your heart

Babe, I don't know where to start
Longing is the hardest part
There ain't no easy way into your heart

This Memory of You

length: 3:44
The blues are in the air tonight
Love has gone and passed me by without a warning
I light up another cigarette
The pain hasn't hit me yet but I know it's comin'

And your perfume lingers still upon my pillow case
The tears just started fallin' down upon my face
I lie here in the loneliness with this memory of you

I don't know where you are tonight
I'm starin' at the candlelight and I miss you, babe
In the darkness here all by myself
I imagine you with someone else, I'm gong crazy

And with everything about you dancing in my head
Girl, I sure am lonely in this empty bed
I lie here in the loneliness with this memory of you

And your perfume lingers still upon my pillow case
And the tears just keep fallin' down upon my face
I lie here in the loneliness with this memory of you

The blues are in the air tonight
Love has gone and passed me by

How Lonely Looks

length: 5:11
I've sung along with a thousand songs
That talked about goodbye
Of letting go of what you love so
Trying to sleep at night

'Bout how you'd cry when you decide
To final walk away
Babe, I swear I never thought
I'd ever see this day

So this is how lonely looks
And how that final feels
Funny how it only took
Goodbye to make it real

I never knew that losing you
Would tear my world apart
Who could've known I'd be alone
With just my broken heart

So this is how lonely looks
And how that final feels
Funny how it only took
Goodbye to make it real

So this is how lonely looks
And how that final feels
Funny how it only took
Goodbye to make it real

So this is how lonely looks
And how that final feels
Funny how it only took
Goodbye to make it real

Tell Me One More Time About Jesus

length: 4:03
Tell me one more time about Jesus
All about forgiveness and grace
Tell me one more time about Jesus
All about my Savior's face

Here comes my old friend, the preacher
He's knockin' on my front door
He's out tryin' to save all the sinners
He's been here so many times before

I love the easy conversation
Man, that preacher sure can talk
It brings up my need for salvation
Even though he knows I'm stubborn to a fault

Tell me one more time about Jesus
All about forgiveness and grace
Tell me one more time about Jesus
Lord, I need just a little more faith

I walked by the church Sunday mornin'
I slipped on in the back door
It's sure been a long time coming
And tell my preacher what I need to know

His words were like a cool drink of water
He said, "Sinners come on down the aisle"
So I went runnin' for the alter
You should have seen my old friend, the preacher smile

Tell me one more time about Jesus
All about forgiveness and grace
Tell me one more time about Jesus
I long to see my Savior's face
Oh, I long to see my Savior's face

Everything and Nothing

length: 4:03
It's like jail, it's like flight
It's a dream that breaks in the middle of the night
It's like chains, it's like an open door
Love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

It's coming home, it's lost at sea
It's a hopeless addiction to sweet misery
It's the poison, it's the candy store
Well, love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

I can't hide from the truth, this love I feel for you
Oh, it's the one thing that I can't ignore
I know I can't explain the pleasure or the pain
Your love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

It's like freedom, it's like a trap
It's a short trip to Heaven and a long ride back
Well, dance on the ceiling and crawl on the floor
And love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

I can't hide from the truth, this love I feel for you
Oh, it's the one thing that I can't ignore
I know I can't explain the pleasure or the pain
Your love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

I can't hide from the truth, this love I feel for you
Oh, it's the one thing that I can't ignore
I know I can't explain the pleasure or the pain
Your love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

Well, love is everything and nothing I've been looking for

Which Way Will You Go

length: 4:12
Baby, you need to put that bottle down
Put that gun back in the drawer
I hear your man's been out there runnin' 'round
You're hell-bent to even up the score

Don't let the devil get you by the throat
You pull that trigger, girl, that's all she wrote
Satan's waitin' for you down the road
Oh, which way will you go?

Your hands are shakin' and your knees are weak
Pistol pointed at the door
You're tired of wearin' bruises on your cheek
Bein' treated like a whore

Don't let the devil get you by the throat
You pull that trigger, girl, that's all she wrote
Well, Satan's waitin' for you down the road
Oh, which way will you go?

And don't let the devil get you by the throat
You pull that trigger, girl, that's all she wrote
Well, Satan's waitin' for you down the road
Oh, which way will you go?

Oh, Heaven only knows

Baby, you need to put that bottle down
Put that gun back in the drawer

These Days

length: 3:56
Man, I've seen it all
I've had my back against the wall
Pain and misery, empty victories
Then you came along

Oh, these days, I'll take these days
Over any other days I've ever known
Oh, your sweet ways make these days
Feel like home

Man, I've chased some crazy dreams
Reaching for that big brass ring
Bitter memories, I've put behind me
I found out it's the little things

Oh, these days, I'll take these days
Over any other days I've ever known
'Cause your sweet ways make these days
Feel like home

Oh, these days, I'll take these days
Over any other days I've ever known
Oh, your sweet ways make these days
Feel like home

'Cause your sweet ways make these days
Feel like home

This New Heartache

length: 3:32



Oh here I sit with my first glass of whiskey

Wondering where I went wrong

How I wish she was still right here with me

I long to hear all those old country songs


Like old Hank Williams when he'd sing about lonesome

And Hag about misery and gin

If the jukebox would play Patsy's 'Crazy'

Then I could let this new heartache begin


The band just quit and the lovers are leaving

And the bartender said it's closing time

Oh I wonder if she's having trouble sleeping

And if those songs keep on runnin' through her mind


Like 'Crazy Arms' and 'A-11'

The 'Lovers Blues' we're 'Together Again'

Why baby, why must you and 'I Fall To Pieces'

It's time to let this new heartache begin

Why baby, why must you and 'I Fall To Pieces'

It's time to let this new heartache begin


The Only Love

length: 3:54
Lying here in this sleepy town
Listening to the sun go down
The only one who hears the sound
Is you

You look at life so wild and free
I love the way you smile at me
The only love I'll ever need
Is you

I need you
To start a clear blue mornin'
I need you
At the end of a long hard day

I've never seen you wear a frown
Blues don't even come around
The only love I've ever found is you

We don't go much of anywhere
Sunday church and county fairs
The world looks good from these rocking chairs
It's true

Be my woman, I'll be your man
We'll go through life hand in hand
All I want to understand
Is you

I need you
To start a clear blue mornin'
I need you
At the end of a long hard day

I've never seen you wear a frown
Blues don't even come around
The only love I've ever found is you

I've never seen you wear a frown
Blues don't even hang around
The only love I've ever found is you

Out of My Mind

length: 3:19
You've got legs just like a long neck bottle
And lips just like strawberry wine
You might be a lifetime of trouble
But still I can't get you out of my mind

Out of my mind, I'm goin' out of my mind
And I see what I've been missin' all this time
Oh, sweet neon angel, don't leave me behind
No, I can't get you out of my mind

You're bringin' on a honky-tonk heartache
And I know you'd never walk the line
To let you slip away, it's a chance I won't take
Still I can't get you out of my mind

Out of my mind, I'm goin' out of my mind
And I see what I've been missin' all this time
Oh, sweet neon angel, don't leave me behind
No, I can't get you out of my mind
No, I can't get you out of my mind

The Sight of Me Without You

length: 4:08
I can't believe I am watching our love ending
I wonder just how long you've been pretending?
Pretending that our love was what you wanted
While you were out there finding someone new
Well, these days I don't dare look in the mirror
Cause I can hardly stand the sight of me without you

My broken heart might need a little mending
And I lie here in the dark still remembering
Remembering when we were so good together
I've become a perfect image of a fool
Oh, the picture of my future is getting clearer
And I can hardly stand the sight of me without you

Oh, the picture of my future is getting clearer
And I can hardly stand the sight of me without you
Oh, the picture of my future is getting clearer
And I can hardly stand the sight of me without you

I Can't Let Go

length: 3:29
Oh, I can't find a way to keep pretending
I'm doin' alright on my own
And I can't find the strength to keep believin'
That you'll ever come back home

But I'm tryin' to put this behind me
And I've been cryin' more than you know
I'd be lyin' to say this won't kill me
Oh, I'm dyin' 'cause I can't let go

And I can't find a way to keep pretending
Well, I'm doin' alright on my own
And I can't find the strength to keep believin'
That you'll ever come back home

Oh, your perfume still lingers all around me
In our bedroom where I loved you so
I'd be lyin' to say this won't kill me
Oh, I'm dyin' 'cause I can't let go
I'd be lyin' to say this won't kill me
Oh, I'm dyin' 'cause I can't let go

Don't Pretend With Me

length: 2:32
They say you'll lie, they say you'll cheat
And your kisses taste so sweet
If you're not in love then let me be
No baby, don't pretend with me

That honky-tonking life you lead
With neon lights you'll never leave
Give me one reason to believe
But baby, don't pretend with me

Your foolish heart will never change
Well, I want no part of your love-sick games
I know you're wild and runnin' free
So baby, don't pretend with me

I'll lay my poor heart at your feet
If you'll leave behind those lonely streets
Oh, we could make sweet memories
So baby, don't pretend with me

Your foolish heart will never change
I want no part of your love-sick games
I know you're wild and runnin' free
So baby, don't pretend with me
I know you're wild and runnin' free
So baby, don't pretend with me

Some Things Never Get Old

length: 4:12
Have you ever watched the sunset
Disappear in the water down in Mexico?
The sky on fire melting into the ocean
Man, there's some things that never get old

Have you ever seen a baby walk for the first time?
It's like watching a sparrow, a sparrow's wings unfold
And when that baby, she smiles up at you
Man, there's some things that never get old

Makin' sweet love to that gal of mine
My first taste of bluebird wine
Eatin' watermelon down to the rind
Any old song by brother John Prine

Sometimes that face looking back in the mirror
It make that mirror, make that mirror cold, babe
But in my heart, oh, I'm a hundred years younger
Man, there's some things that never get old, no, no

I ride into town with some friends of mine
It's a two-tone Chevy, she's a 59
Ice cold beer in the summertime
Pickin' on the back porch with brother John Prine

Well, I think livin' is one long highway
I'm bettin' Heaven is at the end of the road
And I think love just might be the answer
Man, there's some things that never get old
And I think love, oh Lord, I know it's the answer
Oh, there's some things that never get old

Sweet Little Corrina

length: 2:53
Well, here comes my little baby
Here comes my turtle dove
She drives me crazy
She's the one that I love

She's got a way about her
I could never turn down
I couldn't live without her
She makes the world go around

Sweet little Corrina
Come over here by my side
Sweet little Corrina
Put your pretty little hand in mine

You could search the world over
Right up till the end of time
Every night I get to hold her
Sweet Corrina, now she's so fine

She's my little angel
My little beauty queen
She never met a stranger
She's the girl of my dreams

She's a ballerina
Sweet as she can be
Ought to see the way
She's smilin' at me

Sweet little Corrina
Come over here by my side
Sweet little Corrina
Put your pretty little hand in mine

You could search the world over
Right up till the end of time
Every night I get to hold her
Sweet Corrina, now she's so fine

Sweet little Corrina
Come over here by my side
Sweet little Corrina
Put your pretty little hand in mine

You could search the world over
Right up till the end of time
Every night I get to hold her
Sweet Corrina, now she's so fine

If I Can Make Mississippi

length: 3:45
If I can make Mississippi
Then I'll be alright
These ol' white lines are lonely
On this two-lane tonight

I've got just enough whiskey
To keep me warm till the mornin' light
If I can make Mississippi
Mississippi tonight

I headed out west
To seek my fortune and fame
I sure made a mess
It took it all but my name

Why I ever left?
I can never explain
If I can make Mississippi
Through this pouring rain

If I can make Mississippi
Then I'll be alright
These ol' white lines are lonely
And the headlights are bright

I've got just enough whiskey
To keep me warm till the mornin' light
If I could make Mississippi
Mississippi tonight

She said, she would wait
She said our love was strong
Well, I'm just so afraid
I've been gone for too long

When I walk through that gate
Will she be there or long, long gone?
If I can make Mississippi
If I can make it back home
If I can make Mississippi
If I can make it back home

Take This Country Back

length: 3:38
They used to be rough and rowdy
And honky-tonk all night long
When the Opry spilled out in the alley
There wasn't nobody goin' home

When they turned out the lights at Tootsie's
To wind up at Cowboy Jack's
We've got to take this country back

We've got to take this country back
We need a few more matchin' Nudie suits
And silver dollar Cadillacs

There's one too many dime store cowboys
Muscled up in a cowboy hat
We've got to take this country back

Nobody wants to be Hank Williams
Sing about the lost highway
Well, Saturday nights at the Ryman
Those were the good ol' days

We need to turn the twang up a little
And bring back the Nashville Cats
We've got to take this country back

We've got to take this country back
We need a few more pointy toed cowboy boots
And steer horn Cadillacs

There's one too many dime store cowboys
Muscled up in a cowboy hat
We've got to take this country back

We've got to take this country back
We need a few more matchin' Nudie suits
And silver dollar Cadillacs

When we all gather up in Heaven
How we gonna face the man in black?
We got to take this country back

Yeah, when we all gather up in Heaven
How we gonna face the man in black?
We got to take this country back

All Prayed Up

length: 2:17

I'm all prayed up, I'm ready to meet my Savior
Eternal life is waitin' in the by and by
I'm all prayed up, my faith will never waiver
Heaven's doors gonna swing wide open when I die

I made my peace with Jesus a long, long time ago
Trusted in Him that He would save my soul
I walked up there beside Him, He guides me me on my way
And I know He hears me when I kneel and pray

I'm all prayed up, I'm ready to meet my Savior
Eternal life is waitin' in the by and by
I'm all prayed up, my faith will never waiver
Heaven's doors gonna swing wide open when I die

Now I ain't afraid of Satan, his wicked ways of sin
They tempted me but he couldn't pull me in
When I've gone to live with Jesus, face my judgment day
He'll fulfill for me the promise that He made

I'm all prayed up, I'm ready to meet my Savior
Eternal life is waitin' in the by and by
I'm all prayed up, my faith will never waiver
Heaven's doors gonna swing wide open when I die

I'm all prayed up, I'm ready to meet my Savior
Eternal life is waitin' in the by and by
I'm all prayed up, my faith will never waiver
Heaven's doors gonna swing wide open when I die
I'm all prayed up, my faith will never waiver
Heaven's doors gonna swing wide open when I die

Cold Gray Light of Gone

length: 4:04
Oh, I woke up this morning
A long before the dawn
I stumbled to the kitchen
And put some coffee on

The house was deathly quiet
I knew something was wrong
Then suddenly it dawned on me
The cold gray light of gone

No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone
When waking up and findin' out
She's never comin' home

And the note that said it's over
Lord, it chills me to the bone
No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone

Oh, I sat and cried for hours
And I tried to clear my head
I even went and laid back down
On her side of the bed

Her perfume lingered on the sheets
Our love once laid upon
Her memory's destroying me
In the cold gray light of gone

No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone
When waking up and findin' out
She's never comin' home

And the note that said it's over
Lord, it chills me to the bone
No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone

No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone
When waking up and findin' out
She's never comin' home

And the note that said it's over
Lord, it chills me to the bone
No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone
No, there's nothin' quite as lonely
As the cold gray light of gone

A River Like You

length: 4:51
A good woman's love is like a river
Runnin' through the heart of a man
If he gives her all he can give her
She'll be with him at every bend

And now the rivers I've crossed
A reflection was lost
And shallow waters left me blue
Girl, I never came across a river like you

A river like you
Where your love runs so deep and true
A river like you
Like a waterfall fallin' in two
A river like you

Well, I spent all my time searchin'
And runnin' like the wayward wind
But you found me desperately driftin'
And touched my heart and took me in

Now your love runs through me
And in your eyes I see
Reflections I never knew
Girl, I'll always be sailin' on a river like you

A river like you
Where your love runs so deep and true
A river like you
Like a waterfall fallin' in two
A river like you

Now the rivers I've crossed
A reflection was lost
And shallow waters left me blue
Girl, I'll always keep sailin' on a river like you

A river like you
Where your love runs so deep and true
A river like you
Like a waterfall fallin' in two
A river like you
A river like you
A river like you

Ace Up Your Pretty Sleeve

length: 3:34
I take it out on you
I take it out on me
Don't take to a cruel world
Very gracefully

I'm the cause and effect
Of my own four-letter words
Baby, I'm a good man
No matter what you heard

And I'll be there for you
When you need me to be
I'll be the sun at your door
I'll be the wind in your trees

If I've nothin' at all on the surface to see
I'll be the ace up your pretty sleeve
Oh yes, I will

I'm sharp with my tongue
I know I cut you inside
But I make a concerted
Effort at times

To try to be more
Than a fool in your eyes
Baby, I love you
Don't you realize?

That I'll be there for you
When you need me to be
I'll be the sun at your door
I'll be the wind in your trees

If I've nothin' at all on the surface to see
I'll be the ace up your pretty sleeve
Oh, up your pretty sleeve, baby

And I'll be there for you
When you need me to be
I'll be the sun at your door
I'll be the wind in your trees

If I've nothin' at all on the surface to see
I'll be the ace up your pretty sleeve
And if I've nothin' at all on the surface to see
I'll be the ace up your pretty sleeve

Oh yes, I will
An ace up your pretty sleeve

Molly Brown

length: 4:20
Molly Brown, waits for me
In a little one-horse town
And Boley, Oklahoma
Where white folks don't come around

I'm thinkin' about you, Molly
I'm forbidden to come 'round
Lord knows I love you, Molly
Molly Brown

Molly Brown, Molly Brown
Lay down by my side
Show me how you spread your wings
And let that pony ride

I'm crazy about you, Molly
I don't care that your skin is brown
Lord knows I need you, Molly
Molly Brown

Molly Brown
Oh, Molly Brown

We met down by the river
She wore her wedding gown
I never saw it coming
And no one heard the sound

My daddy used both barrels
And left me there to drown
Lord knows I'd die for Molly
Molly Brown

Molly Brown, Molly Brown
Don't you weep for me
I'm going to a place the Lord
Prepared for you and me

I'll meet you up in Heaven
Upon that Holy ground
I'll be waitin' for you, Molly

Molly Brown, Molly Brown, Molly Brown
Lord, I'll be waitin' up in Heavenly
My sweet little brown, Molly Brown

Girl

Girl, you can trust me with your heart
We've got a chance for a brand new start
Part of your past was so cold and dark
Girl, you can trust me with your heart

Girl, I will never turn away
Give you my word I will always stay
I promise to honor and obey
Girl, I will never turn away

Let's throw caution to the wind
Take what comes around the bend
Girl, you will never hurt again
It's the safest place you've ever been

Girl, I'm asking for your hand
Down on my knees with this golden band
I swear, I will be a gentle man
Girl, I'm asking for your hand

Let's throw caution to the wind
Take what comes around the bend
Girl, you will never hurt again
It's the safest place you've ever been

Let's throw caution to the wind

Girl, you will never hurt again
It's the safest place you've ever been

I swear, I will be a faithful man
Girl, you can trust me till the end

Give Me the Highway

length: 3:15
Give me the highway
Lord knows I love to roam
Give me the highway
Well, I can hear the lonesome whistle moan

White lines, neon signs
Have always been my home
Give me the highway
'Cause I was born a rollin' stone

Down every road I travel
Lord, to you might look the same
But maybe you might tell me
Every town's got a different name

I'd like to find a woman
That won't hell-bent to tie me down
Someone to be content
To go anywhere I'm bound

Give me the highway
Lord knows I love to roam
Give me the highway
Well, I can hear the lonesome whistle moan

White lines, neon signs
Have always been my home
Give me the highway
'Cause I was born a rollin' stone

Give me the highway
Lord knows I love to roam
Give me the highway
Well, I can hear the lonesome whistle moan

White lines, neon signs
Have always been my home
Give me the highway
'Cause I was born a rollin' stone
Give me the highway
'Cause I was born a rollin' stone

She wakes me with a kiss
She is the only woman
My heart cannot resist

She whispers that she loves me
She knows I feel the same

Little Brother

length: 4:47
We were just kids growin' up in West Texas
Remember the hell we've raised
We chased the girls but we never could catch 'em
Those were our glory days

You called me cowboy 'cause I drove a pickup
And sang those old cheatin' songs
We'd buy a bottle of Boone's Farm, wind up all messed up
Where have those years all gone?

Hey little brother, this is old cowboy
Best keep your radio on
'Cause I might get lucky, sing on the Opry
And I'll dedicate you this song

Well, I hit the highway and never looked back
You stayed here in our old hometown
You married a sweet girl down around Austin
Had nine kids whose eyes are all brown

I hit every barroom from Bakersfield to Boston
Seeking whiskey, fortune and fame
Countin' these white lines sure gets lonely
Someday they'll all know my name

Hey little brother, this is old cowboy
Best keep your radio on
'Cause I might get lucky, sing on the Opry
And I'll dedicate you this song

Well, the years come and go and I've sure realized
Ain't nothin' like your best friend
If there's one thing I know 'til the day that I die
You've got my back, brother Ben

Hey little brother, this is old cowboy
You've got your radio on
Tonight I got lucky, I'm singin' on the Opry
And I dedicate you this song

Yeah, tonight I got lucky, I'm singin' on the Grand Ole Opry
And I dedicate you this song

Almost Home

length: 5:20
He was sitting in the corner
At a table all alone
A candle burnin' in the darkness
His glass of wine was almost gone

And something about him felt familiar
And it made me stop and stare
The way he held his hands before him
Looked like he was lost in prayer

Hey son, what are you lookin' at?
Why do your eyes look so sad?
There's somethin' in the way he sat there
It made me think about my dad

I'm lookin' for the answer
Just like everyone
I know that there's no ending
To the love between a father and the son

Hey son, why don't you pull up one of those empty chairs?
Bring it over here by my side
Buy me a glass of wine
This looks like a real good place to hide

You know I've always been a fisherman
Fishin' for souls along the way
You kind of remind me of my only son
And I lost him 33 years ago today

I'm lookin' for the answer
Just like everyone
I know that there's no ending
To the love between a father and the son

There's somethin' I must give you
The compass that my father made
It'll point you in the right direction
In case you ever lose your way

You know I've got somethin' here in my pocket
This is little silver cross
I think my son would want you to have it
When you think all the hope is lost

We're lookin' for the answer
Just like everyone
We know that there's no ending
To the love between a father and the son

I left him sitting at his table
But I didn't feel alone
For a moment I could see the light
Oh, we were almost home
For a moment I could see the light
Oh, we were almost home
