Whenever she drinks whiskey She gets a little frisky She has a little more And drags me on the floor Whenever she drinks whiskey She drinks no more , no less Til she lose her party dress She likes to have her fun She has me on the run Whenever she drinks whiskey O poor , old me , O me Can’t anybody see? When she grabs a hold of me I’m helpless as can be Whenever she drinks whiskey She gets a little frisky She has a little more And drags me on the floor Whenever she drinks whiskey O poor , old me , O me Can’t anybody see? When she grabs a hold of me I’m helpless as can be She drinks no more , no less Til she lose her party dress She likes to have her fun She has me on the run Whenever she drinks whiskey She has a little more And drags me on the floor Whenever she drinks whiskey

I whisper your name But you’re not beside me I’ve got to keep it quiet But it’s really not the same I whisper your name While we make love Tho you’re not here I still whisper your name I whisper your name In the softest of voice Although not by choice I whisper your name I whisper your name kissing your soft lips letting your name slip I only whisper your name I whisper your name I keep it to myself So no one else can hear I only whisper your name I whisper your name So I will not disturb her I wish you were here I’d whisper your name

Take it easy on me, I’ve done some hard time Under the thumb of one hard hard woman Shackled & chained and, treated like small change Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame Gave up my soul, and all of my free will Waved goodbye to, all of my pride A woman can make a man, do some strange things Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame (ain’t it a shame) Ain’t it a shame How in the world did I get in so deep Under the thumb of a woman so mean The crack of that whip boys can, only mean one thing It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on I’ll tell you what boys, I learned a few things like It ain’t love every time the bells rings I’m packing my bag, and catching the next train It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on (It’s time to move on) It’s time to move on

What’s all this talk about a man a being lost when his woman walks away . Talk’s just talk & I had a thought , I’m thinking who needs’em anyway I’ve had some down time I guess that’s true but I’m feeling better now than then give me two more here & set’em down side by side , We’ll make it one for the memory & one for the pain Who can depend on a broken man when he’s down on bended knees , Cause he ain’t really at the end when all he needs is a few good friends I’ve had some down time I guess that’s true but I’m feeling better now than then give me two more here & set’em down side by side , We’ll make it one for the memory & one for the pain. And look at me the epitome of a man who’s been thrown away . But I found me a friend in Jesus and Thank God he’s a drinkin’ man . I’ve had some down time I guess that’s true but I’m feeling better now than then give me two more here & set’em down side by side , We’ll make it one for the memory & one for the pain .

I got, a lot of things that I gotta say Seems you heard what I heard, that you heard today I see you thinkin’ but what happened, hadn’t happened that way Wait a minute, I’ll try to tell it to you my way We were dancin’, just slow dancin’ No bump’n’grind, just passin’time She likes dancin’, real slow dancin’ When push comes to shove, what was I thinkin’ of I caught her eye, and she came up talkin’ to me I tried to lie, but she saw right thru me I caught her smile, looking just as cute as can be She’s next to me sayin’ “Let’s let come what may be.” I was drinkin’, she was drinkin’ we caught a buzz, that’s all it was We were dancin’, just slow dancin’ When push comes to shove, what was I thinkin’ of Seems to me, apologies in order today Can’t you see, I was more like a victim than prey Whatever happened, just happened okay? Wait a minute, baby don’t start walking away She was laughing, I was laughing Her hand fell in mine, we couldn’t feel more fine She liked dancin’, just slow dancin’ When push comes to shove, what was I thinkin’ of

How could I have known that you’d grown tired of me , hidden emotions are so hard to see But it’s alright cuz I don’t mind just dim the lights in case I cry tonight. I know it ain’t easy being the one to leave , I wanna step outside your life and be who you see . But it’s alright cuz I don’t mind , just dim the lights in case I cry tonight. And tho I don’t own you I had called you mine, nobody’s got a lock on love and life is so unkind . But it’s alright cuz I don’t mind , just dim the lights in case I cry tonight. So go ahead & leave me you know i really don’t care , I got a whole life to live with just one more cross to bear . But it’s alright cuz I don’t mind , just dim the lights in case I cry tonight

If I was a sailor , on the deep blue sea I’d grow old & gray , among the waves , that roll by endlessly [Chorus]: And I’d sail away , sail away sail away with you. The sea can be so old & cold , just like a lonely world People can be caught by the tide that ebbs & swirls [Chorus]: And I’d sail away , sail away sail away with you. The evening rolls around , the sun’s goin’ down it’s been a lonely day People go inside & close their eyes they got nothing left to say [Chorus]: And I’d sail away sail away sail away with you. Life can be so pretty precious when you’re living in the open air The wind blows thru the sails I see the wind blow thru your hair [Chorus]: And I’d sail away sail away sail away with you. The wind lifts the waves up over the open bow I’m at peace when we’re together & we’re together now. [Chorus]: And I’d sail away , sail away sail away with you.

You were a winter & I was the fall You always came up behind me thru it all You never saw the sun I never saw the moon Still we never thought that we drift apart so soon I told you things that made you feel okay You saw something in me but couldn’t stay anyway I said I would but never said I could Still I tried to give you everything Life can be so cruel Talk to the wall & cursed at the screen Pinned your picture up on a supporting beam Threw my arms around it everytime I felt alone A mental connection that might bring you home Two more seasons came the summer & spring The sun and rain & the gifts they would bring Fifteen months without a sign of you Just found out you were looking for me too Life can be so cruel Love does not envy & love does not fear Love is the act of bringing the good out of someone Last time I saw you , you were standing in the rain I was falling down drunk , you were high on cocaine And I told you , you was a fool for doing what you do I was too blind to see , I was doing it too You reached out your hand & helped me to my feet We walked to the diner & talked & had a bite to eat You turned around & then you walked away I never got the chance to see you again Life can be so cruel

Time_ replaces everything You gotta grab your moments the best you can Reach out & hold on & it’s gone again like_ a lonely wind I’d_ hold on if I could It’s like I could feel you here & that’s not good Cause I think about you more than I should and the loneliness that you left behind I’d step thru dimensions of time just to see you again Hear your laughter & the sound of your voice when you were my best friend My heart is never gonna mend I’d_ spend my nights all alone Touching on memories as they come & go leaving me with that lonely glow of_ better times I’d step thru dimensions of time just to see you again Hear your laughter & the sound of your voice when you were my best friend My heart is never gonna mend So you go baby well that’s alright I knew I couldn’t hold you for the rest of my life just leave me here & I’ll face the night and the loneliness that you left behind I’d step thru dimensions of time just to see you again Hear your laughter & the sound of your voice when you were my best friend My heart is never gonna mend

Maybe I, could be more lonely sure enough I’ve got the time Looks like I’ve stumbled over a careless wink of an eye and she’s gone, gone gone gone gone in the wink of an eye Ain’t it strange how, fate controls us building our own little lies Led astray by the softest whisper the careless wink of an eye now she’s gone, gone gone gone gone in the wink of an eye Impact sparks, from quick lightning they can leave a man blind Squeeze & tease cuddle in the corner the careless wink of an eye and she’s gone, gone gone gone gone in the wink of an eye There’s a price to, mining fool’s gold jumping claims when you’re high Of course the source of this last disaster the careless wink of an eye now she’s gone, gone gone gone gone in the wink of an eye

We both know someday you’ll , wanna ride again You’re gonna wake up, with the wind Eyeball that blacktop pull another card from your hand Lay it down, if it’s too much weight, lay it down Lay it down, if it’s too much weight baby, you can lay it down How many times have I seen’em in your eyes Those old road dogs playing with your mind Trash talkin’ fantasy with another roll of the dice Roll’em out, if it’s too much weight, roll’em out Roll’em out, if it’s too much weight baby, better roll’em out Never knew a man so fast who moved so slow Got a comet, for a soul Space dust don’t settle down it just gathers up behind Find your boots, push back your hair baby, take a ride Find your boots, push your hair back down baby, you can take a ride Instrumental Lay it down, if it’s too much weight, lay it down Lay it down, if it’s too much weight baby, you can lay it down Lay it down, if it’s too much weight, lay it down Lay it down, if it’s too much weight baby, you can lay it down

Between the trees & this great arcade of shade , a shelter from this world I hadn’t made . Enters the wind, the gentle wind that winds down from the trees . You might wonder why I’m here Can you feel the wind? Can you feel the trees? Can you feel_the wind & the trees? Oh_only thing you’ll ever need Behold the sea, the precious sea cool water clear , a place where I can shed no tear Enters the wind the gentle wind that blows over sea You might wonder why I’m here Can you feel the wind? Can you feel the sea? Can you feel_the wind & the sea? only thing you’ll ever need Above the clouds the towering stone cathedrals be , A refuge from the city waits for me . Enters the wind the gentle wind that whispers above the stone . You might wonder why I’m here Can you feel the wind? Can you feel the stone? Can you feel_the wind & the stone? only thing you’ll ever need

How many times have I fallen in love. You’d think that more than once , would be more than enough But where there’s smoke there’s fire Where there’s smoke there’s fire And man I’m ready to burn Standin’ on the corner I can watch’em walk by If they give a little wiggle & a big wicked smile But where there’s smoke there’s fire Where there’s smoke there’s fire And man I’m ready to burn Am I real concerned about cause & effect Am I wearin’ out well it ain’t happened yet I got no issues I got no regrets Tho I’m only smokin’ man I’m ready to burn I wish I could find enough quality time To spend with every girl that gives me the eye But where there’s smoke there’s fire Where there’s smoke there’s fire where there’s smoke there’s fire And man I’m ready to burn

Everyone, needs somebody Everybody, needs someone here Every soul needs some, sanctuary when they Find a load too hard to carry and you’re So tired, road weary but you You have a thought, and you form a theory baby One more Hail Mary might do One more Hail Mary might do Looking back, over your shoulder thinkin’ How in the world did I, get so much older Treadin’ water, slowly sinking Instinctively thinkin’ maybe, somethings missing You spent your life so, indecisive Now you’re thinking it, sure be nice if One more Hail Mary might do You’re comin’ up to the, fork in the road Feels a little like the twilight zone You sense your soul’s a little over exposed And you’re praying for some damage control You think about every, rule you bend Right about now you could, use a friend and might I recommend, one more_Hail Mary Amen Take a stock, of what you got and right now it don’t, seem like a lot You’ve been thru all the worldly stages Next phase is called salvation You’ll seek it, you’ll speak it Comes a time where you all need it

Darlin’ I could show you all the memories I keep to help me thru but you wouldn’t want to see them cause all of them revolve around you And the thought of you makes me too blue to move And the thought of you makes me too blue I know that you advised me to move on & get a life & have some fun That’s good advice and timely but it seems easier said than done And the thought of you makes me too blue to move And the thought of you makes me too blue Night after sleepless night I keep your picture right beside me re-read every message thru I saved every “I love you’ Darlin’ I could tell you just how much you always meant to me but you wouldn’t want to hear them always something you never would believe And the thought of you makes me too blue to move And the thought of you makes me too blue And the thought of you makes me too blue to move And the thought of you makes me too blue

Say goodbye to all our rock’n’roll heroes today their voices gone , they told our stories their way And their words that they did sell to our spirits like a bat outta hell They sang the songs that made all our hearts melt Through Heaven’s gate they did all advance They all found peace but not before we fell into their A trance and through the pearly gate where upon their big entrance they made all the angels dance Holly & Valens and the Bopper , they all did fly Til they got their wings aboard the ‘American Pie’ Sam Cooke gave us the news and Otis he gave us the blues Elvis warned us not to step on his ‘blue suede shoes’ Through heaven’s gate… They turned the music up louder & Jimi began to play Bon Scott & Bonham took our music another way Got loud & that’s the thing Cause Rock’n’Roll is still king And Stevie Ray made his fender ring Through Heaven’s gate… Up in heaven there’s gotta be a hell of a band They got a voice like Janis & Lennon on the guitar , man They must be playin’ all the classics and Hear them all on the big bandstand Imagine it all and give’em a great big hand Through heaven’s gate… and through the pearly gate where upon their big entrance and then all the angels danced

Funny I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout you And wondrin’ what it is you doin’ If you’d like to meet me somehow Lately I’ve been trying to call you But I can’t get an answer I wanna know where are you right now Cause lately I’ve been wanting you Hurting cause you gone somewhere Don’t you know I need you right now And lately I’ve been missing you Wishing you were here with me And I still love you anyhow You keep me blinded from the truth Is it too much to ask of you If you still want me or not? This disappearing any time you want Then reappearing so nonchalant It turns my stomach into a knot And lately I’ve been needing you You only make me miss you more Sometimes I wished you stay away this time Cause lately I have been so blind The years not so forgiving kind Without you has been a hard climb Women came and left my door It only made me want you more Would you be so kind to explain Bring back my heart that you did take Give me the love that I do ache for. And why do you need to roam And lately I’ve been asking why Why you want to make me cry Why do you make me feel blue And lately I’ve been searching for A love that I’ve been reaching for These things that you put me through Lately I’ve been waiting for you to walk back through the door Hoping that you’d stay longer this time And lately I’ve been lonely But I think about you only Tell me darlin’ that you’re still mine

I saw the news today boy oh boy It was Just You & I baby back in the day Now you got the life you always dreamed about and I’m still alone But I am krushed about it somehow And I would love to see you now All the years we haven’t spoke Again my heart is broke I am krushed about it now Don’t get me wrong I’m happy for you By now I thought I’d found someone too I’m lonely then , I’m lonely now And no one understands my pain But I am krushed about it somehow And I would love to see you now All the years we haven’t spoke Again my heart is broke I am krushed about it now Talkin’ to myself bout ‘coulda beens’ like ‘take my hand baby I’ll be your man’ But I wasted the time with just too many thoughts in my head But I am krushed about it somehow And I would love to see you now All the years we haven’t spoke Again my heart is broke I am krushed about it now Good luck to you & your brand new man Be together forever in God’s plan I’ll hold on to our harmonies a reminder of what ‘coulda been But I am krushed about it somehow And I would love to see you now All the years we haven’t spoke Again my heart is broke I am krushed about it now

Lookin’ down by the corner, I see, a girl, but I wish she’d slow down. Maybe should I bother Oh baby, she’s walkin’, into a crowd I could be happy now, if I was looking into her eyes. Yes I’d be sailing thru, but as it is, oh how I dream of this, or if I had more time, or just another chance to see , oh baby wait up for me Maybe ask her for coffee, or tea, or me, oh just to break the ice. Maybe I can take, her home, her phone. Oh wouldn’t that be nice I could be happy now, if I was looking into her eyes. Yes I’d be sailing thru, but as it is, oh how I dream of this, or if I had more time, or just another chance to see , oh baby wait up for me The light is turning red, OK, she stops, now i got more time. So I walk on up, next to her, and stop, but nothing comes to mind. I could be happy now, if I was looking into her eyes. Yes I’d be sailing thru, but as it is, oh how I dream of this, or if I had more time, or just another chance to see , oh baby wait up for me Ooh then she turns around, & smiles, & winks, & she blows me a kiss. You can call me sometime, if you’d like, tonight, oh by the way my address. I could be happy now, if I was looking into her eyes. Yes I’d be sailing thru, but as it is, oh how I dream of this, or if I had more time, or just another chance to see , oh baby wait up for me

Don’t the moon look older now A few less stars in the sky If a star dies with every tear of mine There’d be no stars in the sky There’d be no stars in the sky Do the angels sweep the night sky clean All of the wish debris & dream machines If a star died with every dream of mine There’d be no stars in the sky There’d be no stars in the sky If I stood here for a million years Counted up my broken dreams & wasted tears If a star died with every broken heart There’d be no stars in the sky There’d be no stars in the sky

Just gimme a kiss who the heck would it hurt? Make it linger lay your hand beneath my shirt I long for the touch of your ruby red lips Just gimme a kiss and let your tongue slip Whisper sweet nothings as you close your eyes Please say yes to me honey I just may be your size Don’t tell me that you just ain’t got the time Just gimme a kiss you can put it on my dime Who would it kill if you just gimme a kiss Come on baby how much time would you miss You don’t have to take my number or even my name Won’cha gimme a kiss if it’s all the same We could have some fun put your lips on mine I wanna hear a ‘yes’ Let me see a smile this time Don’t tell me that it’s not what you wanna do You don’t even have to say the words ‘love me do’ Are you afraid of letting down your guard You don’t need to hide , let’s lay out all our cards You don’t need to worry if I’ll be there for you Just gimme a kiss , don’t make me sad & blue Just gimme a kiss and then hold me tight Kiss me for awhile and then say ‘goodnight’ Don’t tell me what you’re thinking ‘How can I be sure?’ I’ve been so lonesome baby and I know you’re the cure

Why can’t we talk & make up It’s your choice why don’t you take it ‘til You decide what you want to do This platform’s cold & empty Train stations are stationary but You can always take the later train Don’t make me feel like a fool Don’t make me cry over you Mistakes are bound to happen Turn around we’ll talk about’em til You decide what you want to do Red Caps are frozen sentrys Stationed here down thru the centuries but You can always ride the later train Don’t make me feel like a fool Don’t make me cry over you I’ve got nothin’ to hide , no nothin’ at all I put my heart on the line Hope your train ain’t on time When dialogue is the proper option Find a coffee shop to stop in til You decide what you want to do Stone mountains don’t move too often Rivers rarely change their courses You can always ride the later train Don’t make me feel like a fool Don’t make me cry over you

Seems like for every dollar I lay my hands on I turn around and find that that dollar’s gone Every dime I make is lost every woman such a cost stand & brush the dust right off I find myself drowned again Still I wish I had a thought for every day I ever fought for any woman who ever drove on by and I wish I had a dime for every time I cried about you A silver dime for every tear in my eye Maybe I just think too much or not thinkin’ at all She’s all I ever thought about I tried to give her all I should have walked away A losing game I played every place and every day push it back and start again_ Still I wish I had a thought for every day I ever fought for any woman who ever drove on by and I wish I had a dime for every time I cried about you A silver dime for every tear in my eye No matter how I play it It all comes out the same Every day I lose again why can’t I let it lay It should’ve soften up by now Yes , It’s too much some how Did it mean to hurt too much to ever be over now Still I wish I had a thought for every day I ever fought for any woman who ever drove on by and I wish I had a dime for every time I cried about you A silver dime for every tear in my eye

Three Chord Song It’s hard to go wrong with a three chord song That three chord sound goes round n round It makes me wanna groove It makes me wanna move Sounding fine as it can be Come on baby won’cha dance with me My friends with their guitars Play along like big rock stars Finding the notes so easy 1-2-3 Sounding fine as it can be It’s hard to go wrong with a three chord song That three chord sound goes round n round It’s so easy like A-B-C I’ll make you fall in love with me It’s a dream for me come true Cause I’m in love with you (Let’s share a) mike and harmonize I’ll get real close and sail on through your eyes Let’s give’em something to talk about Let’s make those people twist’n’shout It’s hard to go wrong with a three chord song That three chord sound goes round n round That three chord sound goes round n round

I had a friend who was, in the business not sure what it was, but he was, always busy and I tried to catch him on the telephone but it seems like he had someplace else to go I knew this girl she was a, good friend of mine if she wasn’t at the mall, she was shopping on line I suggested maybe a picture show but it seems like she had someplace, else to go Seems like everybody has someplace else to go Tried to look up some, old friends I know but it’s so hard to find anyone home I leave my message at the sound of the tone but it, Seems like everybody has some place else to go.. Thought I’d take a ride around town see if anyone was, gettin down I hit the places that I know Seems like everybody has someplace else to go... but not me don’t ever be where I don’t want to be Seems like everybody has someplace else to go....

'He'p me Doctor I am dizzy would you stop & talk to me He'p me Doctor falling for your charms he'p me Doctor falling in your arms Would you see me , I am lonely Need a prescription from you only Could you he’p me feel better Could you fill me out a letter Quick bring me back in your testing room Lonely echo going boom boom boom Where you can listen to my heart And say we’ll never be apart He’p me cause I’m sad as I can be . Ain’t there someone who is meant for me I want to feel the soft touch of your kiss I want to know the feeling does exist He’p me Doctor I am fractured It’s for real not manufactured He’p me fix a broken heart it’s true He’p me Doctor leave it up to you He’p me Doctor could you treat this Gimme some sugar we could beat this He’p me Doctor how can you resist How well I feel if we could just kiss You took an oath to save a life make a home and become man n wife Imagine you n me n me n you Say you love me n I’ll be true

I could be wrong but it looks like the dawn is peeping it's head through the corner of your window, baby should I go Or should I stay did you want it that way . or would you like me to say I'm sorry, then baby i'm sorry Maybe i'll just stay around if you want me , if you want me Maybe we can have some time if you want to , if you want to But the moon is so full and you look so good with your hair hung down on your shoulder, made me feel bolder With you standing there the moon in your hair moments like this should last forever, ever and ever Maybe i'll just ..... I could be wrong but it looks like the dawn is peeping it's head through the corner of your window, baby should I go

They tell me I look better today I’ve felt more rested since you went away I sleep real well but lonely There’s no more fightin’ & there’s no more lyin’ This old heart don’t hurt all the time I sleep real well, but lonely Don’t tell me I need you Don’t tell me I need you it’s kinda quiet but it suits me fine There’s no loud voices & no one’s cryin’ surround myself in silence I took enough time to collect my thoughts sort it all out & I saw how it looked There’s a welcome silence Don’t tell me I need you Don’t tell me I need you A patched up ego that’s fragile at best I guess what’s needed is emotional rest I sleep real well but lonely And I get myself together again I treat this silence like a long lost friend I sleep real well, but lonely Don’t tell me I need you Don’t tell me I need you

night times for love All alone i watch the sunrise in the sky and carry away any traces of the lie Whoever said night time's for love it's also a time for those who cry Losers weep when the sun begins to set Losing sleep over loves they might regret Whoever said night time's for love it's also a time to forget Lying awake chasing the sleep time just won't come Losing the race running dead last to the sun Whoever said night time's for love it's also a time if you never won But most of all it's a time to be alone to think about what it was that went wrong Whoever said night time's for love it's also the dark before the dawn .

answer man You're asking me questions that I don't understand , What make you think that i'm the answer man How would I know what I don't know Would I love you tomorrow as much as I love you today? What make you think that I can second guess Do you think i am the Amazing Kreskin Well I don't know Will I love you tomorrow as much as I love you today Does your butt look big in your brand new dress How can I give you a no or a yes How would I know what I don't know Would I love you tomorrow as much as I love you today? Would I love you tomorrow as much as I love you today?

no surprise I saw this coming miles away You said you were leaving , leaving me today It was no surprise , I said it's no surprise It was no surprise to me I should have realized before Your eyes were always , looking towards the door It was no surprise , I said it's no surprise It was no surprise to me I opened up my eyes to see , that all this time you wanted him instead of me Hear what i'm saying your love isn't mine Give up on tryin , tryin' one more time It was no surprise , I said it's no surprise It was no surprise to me

simple Simple lies from a simple mind I simply don't understand Fairy tales where your logic fails to impress anyone Hold that thought i'll walk on through I've got plenty of time Hold that door i'll walk on through and baby wave bye bye Simple implies there's a simple reply I simply do not think so Obvious flaws and that pregnant pause Do I really look all that dumb Hold that thought i'll walk on through I've got plenty of time Hold that door i'll walk on through and baby wave bye bye Let's simplify and i'll symbolize visualize that i'm gone Fairy tales where your logic fails to impress anyone Hold that thought i'll walk on through I've got plenty of time Hold that door i'll walk on through and baby wave bye bye

dreamers children and thieves I should be sleeping the night's been cool and clear but chances are daylight will still find me here It's a small consolation but I still have my pride . The silence is haunting the shades been pulled and drawn trying to shelter myself from the dawn and when was the last time I kissed her goodbye I should be sleeping the night's been cool and clear but chances are daylight will still find me here It's a small consolation but I still have my pride Why did you leave me in the middle of my song without your harmony the melody's all wrong then why can't I empty your tune from my mind I should be sleeping the night's been cool and clear but chances are daylight will still find me here It's a small consolation but I'm not alone for who among you hasn't been told that love is for dreamers children and thieves how it comes in the night time on a soft gentle breeze then why am I lonely forgotten to die .

show you care (lyrics: Dawn Owen Ziraschi , music :Gary O'Neill) Hearts so hurt healing at last of love's lost days in the past Feelings once still now lay at my feet Achin' to live yearn to be free It's jn the way you say my name (you show you care) It's in the way you lay to claim this smile I wear It's in the way you show you care Smiling yes with sparkling eyes taking care this moonlit night So in my dreams I take to flight and you'll be there on this night It's in the way you say my name (you show you care) It's in the way you lay to claim this smile I wear It's in the way you show you care Memories that linger on for so long are buried and gone Gone with this night lovers first kiss holding her hand not to be missed It's jn the way you say my name (you show you care) It's in the way you lay to claim this smile I wear It's in the way you show you care

return to innocence I know you don't know me but we could remedy that I'll tell you my name you might smile back Polite conversation leads to mutual friends We might be holding hands before the night ends And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) And maybe you'll like me and I might like you Our eyes might touch briefly that's so hard to do Maybe i'll feel what you're trying to say While watching your shyness melting away And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) We may be engaging in some innocence play It's nice to know it still happens that way And maybe we'll follow the natural order of things And find that light that simple innocence brings And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) It's easy to see why i'm attracted to you You're soft and you're warm and it sort of shines through I won't try to push you you won't pressure me Let's walk this thing through and see where it leads And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that) And it could go like that (Yes yes and it could go like that)

i might as well a stayed home When I came here to see you I thought we might clear the air But I think you misunderstood me the last time I was here And we only seem to be boggin' down with every word that I say You're tryin' to see around me and I just can't live that way I might as well-a stayed home I might as well-a stayed home Maybe we should leave well enough alone I might as well-a stayed home It seems whenever I say "Yes" you always hear me say "No" And if I say that it is You always say it ain't so So if you're through looking for secrets and reading things into what I done I might as well-a be leaving You can say your nature's won I might as well-a stayed home I might as well-a stayed home Maybe we should leave well enough alone I might as well-a stayed home And though I may still love you I just can't play this game Cause the two of us can't say one thing and have it come out the same I might as well-a stayed home I might as well-a stayed home Maybe we should leave well enough alone I might as well-a stayed home

whos lonely now Drifted down through Massachusetts Eased on over the Connecticut line The rain became a travelin' companion of mine Headlights pierced the night without a scream Knockouts cast in dark behind the wheel Shadows caught like memories between the lines If I could hold you now yea yea yea yea If I could hold her now What would I care? At times I feel like a tragic hero Sole survivor alive at ground zero Floating through the ozone on my own Ghostly motions pass before my eyes Nagging notions of thoughts that sermonize Push on past the miles carved in stone . If I could hold you now yea yea yea yea If I could hold her now What would I care? Old red eyed men comandeer the coffee stops Stare at the air above the countertops Heir apparent to the highways drifting by Unhappy clothes hang on those shabby frames Leftover lives whose fortunes came and went Mark the course of their history with a sigh If I could hold you now yea yea yea yea Who's lonely now (Who_) I am Who's lonely now (Who_) I am Who's lonely now (Who_) I am ...

cruel monday morning It must be Monday morning No other day feels quite this way No amount of booze or coffee Can wash Monday morning away And I lie in my bed and I hold my head and I try to open my eyes The hangover hangs on and I hit the alarm and totally wish I could die Oh Monday morning Cruel Monday morning It must be Monday morning The skies all seem so dark and gray There's never no sun on Monday morning as if though God planned it that way . And I lie in my bed and I hold my head and I try to open my eyes The hangover hangs on and I hit the alarm and totally wish I could die Oh Monday morning Cruel Monday morning It must be Monday morning My head still hurts from Saturday Why dces the week start on Monday morning Friday night seems so far away And I lie in my bed and I hold my head and I try to open my eyes The hangover hangs on and I hit the alarm and totally wish I could die Oh Monday morning Cruel Monday morning

nobody but me I was born forgotten , en expelled shell of a gypsy queen , left on the road between freeze and deliver a token emotion the dregs of a dream And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me And I grew to the final heartbeat Hints of torment heard an angel scream I pulled a cold shoulder over the rainbow and sunk my life into dreams And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me I made a life out of sole survival Try to live it the best I can Took each trial and put it behind me and passed through this life with degree And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me The candle of life is short and burns quickly a raging river from a peaceful stream Stole a moment before I stopped breathing and then I began to dream And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me And I don't need nobody don't need nobody but me

cue in the rain Days that seem as sad as these need a little rain Sets the mood to the best effect , so let it rain on me Cue in the rain sun exits stage left The lady leaves again hearts broken tears wept I got no need for the sun today he's over rated at best His agent claims he's super star it's all just special effects Minimize all my dialogue I've no use for a script The make=up man can't make his tears any realer than this Cue in the rain sun exits stage left The lady leaves again hearts broken tears wept The part when she leaves needs a little rain brings so much to the scene Enter the clouds bring the house lights down then let it rain on me Do the thing with the violins the sunset at my back Pan away as she's leavin' me then let it fade to black Cue in the rain sun exits stage left The lady leaves again hearts broken tears wept

all i want I sat there this morning just me and the phone The phone didn't ring and i'm all alone I'd watch a full moon rise and fall I thought she'd at least give me a call And all I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes All I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes . I tried to piece it together again Something about she said I said or something she heard through a friend I'm trying to twist this into shape I have a bad feeling it's some kind of mistake And all I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes All I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes . All she said was "Hey I gotta leave" No explanations just one more mystery "Watson , get your coat on" I'm sitting foolish with my head in my hand I can say truly that I do not understand To try and figure women is like walking a wire Any man who says he understands is a fool or a liar And all I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes All I want is to cry All I want is tears in my eyes .

nobody seems to know me better than you I know you know that it's hard for me to try to tell you how I really feel There's a hard part in the middle of my heart It's never seen the sun just stays in the dark Yea but nobody seems to know that better than you yea yea yea Nobody seems to know me better than you I don't even know where I got the nerve I know i'm not as good as you should deserve There's a dark side to everything that I done but just for once i'd like to touch the sun Yea but nobody seems to know that better than you yea yea yea Nobody seems to know me better than you So if you get down to making a choice that other boy well he's just making noise He's playing a game that he knows so well but kindred spirits never kiss and tell Yea but nobody seems to know that better than you yea yea yea Nobody seems to know me better than you

feels like rain I'm thinking time to leave I'm tired of you & you're sure tired of me Love should be sunshine and flowers but this feels like rain and when it rains it pours and when it rains it pours I think we're old enough to tell when something really soured and we run out of love Love should be sunshine and flowers but this feels like rain and when it rains it pours and when it rains it pours I think we both know it's time There's the door you can walk right out and i'll walk out mine Love should be sunshine and flowers but this feels like rain and when it rains it pours and when it rains it pours

snow silent Snow moon on the horizon , steely spike in the air Crunchy touch to the grass on the ground , you feel it everywhere Snow silent in the air , you can feel it in the air First snow by morning tightly packed to the ground Unmolested by the trespass of men snow silent all around There's beauty on the ground snow silent on the ground We may be impressive with everything that we done But just one look on that undisturbed snow I think we done it all wrong We done it all wrong We done it all wrong There's beauty in pure nature unsurpassed by us all Nothing man made stand a chance against a new snowfall Snow silent in us all (lets take a little ride) Snow silent in us all (Take a snow silent ride) Snow silent in the air (snow silent in us all) You can feel it in the air (snow silent in us all) There's beauty on the ground (Let's take a little ride) Snow silent on the ground (Take a snow silent ride) We done it all wrong (Snow silent in us all) I think we done it all wrong (snow silent in us all) Snow silent in us all (Let's take a little ride) Snow silent in us all (Take a snow silent ride)

whiskey wind Whiskey wind keeps me movin' on push these old bones down the road Laying low must've been someone elses dream and that someone else must be someone other than me I'm ridin' high on that mystical whiskey wind . Whiskey wind just keeps rollin' on Don't seem like it's ever gonna end I guess steppin' off must've been someone elses dream and that someone else must be someone other than me I'm ridin' high on that mystical whiskey wind This reflection sure seems a lot like me I think i once had that same kind of dream and if I start thinking what I was thinking yesterday I can push it all away with a hit from the whiskey wind Push it all away with a hit from the whiskey wind Whiskey light won't you shine on me I wear that halo like a crown I guess steppin off well it must've been someone elses dream that someone else must be someone other than me Cause i'm ridin' high on that mystical whiskey wind Whiskey night keep me safe and warm Soften the harsh edge of the dawn I guess waking up must've been someone elses dream that someone else must be someone other than me I'm still ridin' high on that mystical whiskey wind .

new shoes Been walking the floor since you been gone And you been gone a long long time Just about worn out the soles on these old shoes of mine What I would not do for a new pair of shoes What I would not do for a new pair of shoes . And i'll keep walkin' until you come home Every night i'm leavin' the front light on Just about burned out the light of every bulb I own What I would not do for a new pair of shoes What I would not do for a new pair of shoes . These cardboard soles don't last too long I slips'em in and I keep walking on With every step I take they tend to disintegrate What I would not do for a new pair of shoes What I would not do for a new pair of shoes . All my friends keep askin' where i'm goin' they say " Let it go man I think that woman is gone" But i'm gonna keep walking on in case they might be wrong What I would not do for a new pair of shoes What I would not do for a new pair of shoes .

stone dry I Guess I ain't the lucky one to the manor born I am not , No silver spoon to light my way the simple truth is all I got I have no use for caviar and I do not drink champagne The only truth I care about is the sound of my own name Yea well that's alright I really don't mind at all If lluck were a waterfall I'd be stone dry . Never won me no big surprise I don't know no one who ever did , I never stood in the bright spotlight of life I don't believe I ever will . Never sat in the lap of luxury , never walked down East Street I never stood in someone elses's shoes I prefer my own two feet Yea well that's alright I really don't mind at all If luck were a waterfall I'd be stone dry .

let's laugh & dance in the rain Let's kick back some Friday evenng and do some "'berry bombs" Let's smoke a number in John's honor and relive "number 9" Let's laugh and dance in the rain that's comin' down , let's laugh and dance in the rain Let's put on that "White Album" I love that "Glass Onion" Let's reminisce about what we missed and what we left undone . Let's laugh and dance in the rain that's comin' down , let's laugh and dance in the rain Hold on to and remember what made you what you are Don't lose don't hide the roots , it don't change nothing , it can't change nothing at all There comes a day when you come of age and you look back all of the time But just recapture what made it magic and keep that dream alive . Let's laugh and dance in the rain that's comin' down , let's laugh and dance in the rain

slow train blues Slow slow train choo chooin' by Steel rail trail laid out behind I can't wait on the midnight flyer Feel some change comin' on down a southbound line Got no chains holdin' me down when it's time to move then I move don't hang around Chasin' something some faceless thunder that's got no name . Slow slow train steel on steel give it a name baby tell me how I feel Take me someplace that's got no doors Take me home I never been before Feel some change comin' on down a southbound line And I ain't got nothing that I don't need , when it's time to leave then I leave don't hang around Chasin' something some faceless thunder that's got no name Slow slow train let me hitch a ride Steady metal hum grindin' out the miles Put some distance underneath my shoes and i'll keep singin' these slow train blues Feel some change comin' on down a southbound line , and there ain't no one who owns my name it's just for me and only me and I just wanna be Chasin' something some faceless thunder that's got no name .

mona lisa can't smile I never knew that I could feel this way I'm in over my head and you're to blame You seem to be something I didn't even know that i want I'd seen it all before and done most in my time But someone like you had never crossed my mind You seem to be something I didn't even know that I want When you stepped into the room and I saw you smile With the face of an angel and your soul on fire The Mona Lisa can't smile like you do The Mona Lisa can't smile like you do It never seemed to matter much before about who I was or where I was going You seem to be something I didn't even know that I want That's all changed and I want what I know Got a hold of it now and I can't let go You seem to be something I didn't even know that I want You seem to be something I didn't even know that I want

merry go round I love you You love him He loves him tooBut you don't see he'll never be in love with you And we go round and round on this merry go round I'll chase you and you'll chase him around this carousel on only a whim You break up and then you make up and then you fall apart Don't you know about his ego He'll only break your heart And we go round and round on this merry go round I'll chase you and you'll chase him around this carousel on only a whim He needs you to stroke his self confidence You're only a trinket of mere innocence And we go round and round on this merry go round I'll chase you and you'll chase him around this carousel on only a whim Who cheered you up when you feel low down Only me you don't see and we go one more round And we go round and round on this merry go round I'll chase you and you'll chase him around this carousel on only a whim

i'd do it all over again A moment ago I told you so and now you say you want to hear it again Alright then you know that I love you And in case you missed the last time we kissed You know I wouldn't be mad if I , if I had to do it all over again But now it ain't been smooth we all know it's true All the hard times a man and a woman go through but you You know i'd do it all over again You know i'd do it all over again . And I suppose if I held you close and whispered in your ear All the things you want to hear And if this led to that & that led to this and ended in more than a simple kiss You know i'd do it all over again You know i'd do it all over again But now it ain't been smooth we all know it's true All the hard times a man and a woman go through but you You know i'd do it all over again You know i'd do it all over again .

won't be sad for long I said baby gots to be movin' on Long before that sunrise you i'll be gone but baby you won't be sad for long . And baby I remember all the good times we shared I thought we had a love that was goin' somewheres but baby you won't be sad for long I admit baby I must have been some kind of fool To let you run around with your golden rule but baby you won't be sad for long I see you crying now but that won't last Cause the kind of tears you cry well they sure dry awful fast , but baby you won't be sad for long . Don't bother saying what I heard was lies They ain't just rumors I seen with my own eyes but I won't be sad for long So i'm goin' now baby you know it's time for me to leave And I know it won't be long before you replace me but I won't be sad for long . And don't you be lookin' for me out your back door There'll be the biggest cloud of dust you ever saw but I won't be sad for long . I see you crying now but that won't last Cause the kind of tears you cry well they sure dry awful fast , but baby you won't be sad for long . .

getting stoned Yea I know that you gotta go but i'm gonna stay here , With one arm on the bar and lazy eyelids And stare at the wall and search for my matches You think you got it all and then something crazy happens And i'm getting stoned and i'm getting stoned . Yes i'll have another beer here give me some matches I thought this was a disco bar Where are all the dancers? I guess i'll stare at the wall and search for my matches Just when you think you got it all something crazy always happens . And i'm getting stoned , and i'm getting stoned Yes i'll have another beer here and think things over It all seems a bit more clear when i'm less than sober I'll stare at the wall and search for my matches You think you got it all and then something crazy happens And i'm getting stoned And i'm getting stoned I'll chase down some bright city lights and wait for the old dawn , Work my way back to my flat and if she's all gone , I'll stare at the wall and search for my matches You think you got it all and then something crazy always happens And i'm getting stoned And i'm getting stoned

love's reply Love's sleeping , love's bleeding , love's needing , love's denied , I'm crying , relying , on my love's reply She doesn't need me I heard her reply , why should I try? , why should I try? I tried to , hold on to , a love that should have died , Can't let it , accept it , never heard your goodbye She doesn't need me I heard her reply , why should I try? , why should I try? What could I tell her , too late to stop her She gave her last reply . Talk it out , work it out , before you should decide , For once I , feel helpless , there's more than meets the eye She doesn't need me I heard her reply , why should I try? , why should I try? I guess it's , all over , all my lies have been tried , She's leaving , she's leaving , one last jab to my pride She doesn't need me I heard her reply , why should I try? , why should I try? why should I try? , why should I try?

I try to keep it all in stride I try yo keep my eyeballs dry I just smile smile smile (Keep smiling you gotta keep smiling) smile smile smile (keep smiling you gotta keep smiling) There's special sayings for every occasion here's one for today If you get lemons then you just make lemonade ade ade ade I try to keep it all in stride I try yo keep my eyeballs dry I just smile smile smile (Keep smiling you gotta keep smiling) smile smile smile (keep smiling you gotta keep smiling) Well though Bob might not be my uncle I hope at least he's a kissing cousin Could be that "Bob's Your Uncle" too? I try to keep it all in stride I try yo keep my eyeballs dry I just smile smile smile (Keep smiling you gotta keep smiling) smile smile smile (keep smiling you gotta keep smiling)

sleight of hand I got a feeling that everything's fine Might mean some changes for me Maybe i'll be smiling on the sunnier side Tapping my happy feet . I feel like an optimist-magician sleight of hand on command I'll prestidigitate a smile on my face It might look funny It might seem funny It sure feels different on me . I look to my left then I look to my rirght Quite a rare sight to see Perched on my shoulders with ridiculous grins Two bluebirds chillin' with me I feel like an optimist-magician sleight of hand on command I'll prestidigitate a smile on my face It might look funny It might seem funny It sure feels different on me . I won't walk around thinkin' things are all down that's not how I want to be , Taking my frown turning it upside down It's much more nicer to see . I feel like an optimist-magician sleight of hand on command I'll prestidigitate a smile on my face It might look funny It might seem funny It sure feels different on me .

was datchu Strollin' home on my bowlin' night , Dropped by the diner just to have a bite , Ordered up some french fries and a burger with cheese , I thought I heard you say "Coffee tea or me" Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? In this last chance truck stop a real coffee dive Sitting at the counter drunk out of my mind , Was that a twinkle when you set the coffee down? , Was that a smile just before you turned around? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? I sat there held my breath and waited for more I couldn't say that I had ever seen her before , A friendly little waitress just as cute as can be , Does she smile for everyone or was it just me? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? I finished up my burger and I finished my fries , When she totalled up the tab I tried to catch her eye I said another cup of coffee is just what I need That's when she turned around and she winked at me Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? Was dat'chu? Was dat'chu? Was dat chu winking at me? I saw you I saw you I saw you winking at me

I saw it all on tv I saw where y'all went down to New Orleans , down to the Mardi Gras and you danced out in the street , too much alcohol I suppose and the cameras caught you a little out of control You know I saw it all and I saw it all on TV . I guess you got the urge to flash the crowd and you tossed your shirt and out they popped into view Too much alcohol I suppose and the cameras caught you just a little overexposed . You know I saw it all and I saw it all on TV . You shook'em up and you pushed them out so proud You called out and then tossed your beads down to the crowd Did a little bit of the Gypsy Rose and the cameras caught you for a "Cops" episode You know I saw it all and I saw it all on TV .

for years one more drink mama just to carry me home I don't need nobody's help I can make it on my own , I been praying for change but it all seems to stay the same You see that I been doing this for years now Maybe too many memories bouncin' round inside my head Causin' me to think about things I had put away yea yea yea , Pulling down all those walls showing me what I don't want to see I see that you been gone for years now I can find my own way home Time to find my own way home I can find my own way home I been doing this for years I spent so much time just sittin' right here Tried to sort it all out what it was that you was talkin' about It never made much sense when you said you'd never see me again Well that's been echoing for years now. Guess I could lie and say that it don't matter to me Hide behind all those lies to make it seem more unreal It might work sometime everywhere but here Well i been missing you for years now I can find my own way home Time to find my own way home I can find my own way home I been doing this for years

penn station Me and my friend were at Penn Station waiting for a train to come , with a look in her eye I could feel my brain starting to hum . Her hand felt so soft as I held it oh so tight I smiled at her she smiled back then I finally saw the light . I think I fell in love at Penn Station tonight We started kissing and everything was alright She's the best little woman that I'd ever seen with short brown hair and them tight fittin' denim jeans I think I fell in love in Penn Station tonight I held her ticket and I held on to her sweetest little lovesick glare The people all around us we never noticed that they were there She said she loved me I said I loved her too I wrapped myself around her I was stuck to her like glue . I think I fell in love at Penn Station tonight We started kissing and everything was alright She's the best little woman that I'd ever seen with short brown hair and them tight fittin' denim jeans I think I fell in love in Penn Station tonight The train pulled in the station we walked on down to track number three I was still holding on to her when the train started to leave , I'm already seeing blue skies instead of gray I'll be loving that good woman for the rest of my days I think I fell in love at Penn Station tonight We started kissing and everything was alright She's the best little woman that I'd ever seen with short brown hair and them tight fittin' denim jeans I think I fell in love in Penn Station tonight
