Ten Hours
Words and music by Narissa Bond

Verse
The sun is rising over my shoulder
Driving fast in a borrowed car
Yes I know where I am going
Even though I’ve never been there before

Faded lines roll down this highway
Where the trees grow up to the side of the road
Ive got delta dreams on my mind
Where a river of love overflows

Chorus
Ten hours and counting
Nine hours to go
Eight hours have gone by
Only two more to go

Virginia to the Carolinas
The Carolinas to Georgia
on my mind
Only one hour before
I hold you in my arms

Verse
Yes I know where I am going
Driving into a sunset sky
Night is chasing this daylight
The horizon is so bright almost blinding my eyes

I have waited for a lifetime
Yes I’ve known you before
I lost you once, now I don’t want
To ever, ever let you go

Chorus
Ten hours and counting
Nine hours to go
Eight hours have gone by
Only two more to go

Virginia to the Carolinas
The Carolinas to Georgia
on my mind
Only one hour before
I hold you in my arms





Til The Storm Passes

Tammy Carroll
Til The Storm Passes

V1
Through the window blows a bitter breeze.
A cold chill shakes me to my knees.
The frosty touch upon my skin,
Are your memories trying to come in.

V2
What is it I'm supposed to do?
What steps to be rid of you?
Cause when I turn, I see you there...
With your cold heart and icy stare.

Chorus:
Well I'm waiting til the storm passes,
Waiting til the storm passes.
When your darkness fades.
Well I'm waiting til the storm passes,
Waiting til the storm passes.
When I'll see the light of day.
When you go away.

V3
The stars have left the darkened skies.
Your cold lips only speak lies.
Your frosty grip wraps around my heart,
Lacerates and tears apart.

Bridge:
What a frigid soul you become,
With bitter winds that leave me numb.

Mama's Voice

May

Jay Harris
“Mama’s Voice”
Words and Music by Jay Harris

My heart was hers the day it started beating
Although we wouldn’t meet for many months
She carried me with pride, safe from danger.
And when the time arrived we knew at once.

I hit this world with nothing, softly screaming
She held me tight and whispered baby hush.
I heard the sound that I would trust forever.
The tender loving peace of mama’s voice.

She raised me, often saved me,
Holding two jobs down to keep our lives on track.
She never judged me, always taught me,
learn from doing something wrong and make it right.
It never crossed my mind I had a choice.
Than to trust each word I heard from Mama's voice.

She knew I’d see some trouble as life happened
I guess that’s why she taught me all she knew.
To help me understand the world plays different.
That I may see and hear things that weren’t true.

Well she was right and I fell for some stories
And as I recall as well a girl or two.
Some guys I thought were friends were only bullies.
They made me do things that I knew I shouldn't do.

Chorus

I barely knew my Daddy's name but I don’t care.
I pretended , but I knew that wasn't fair.
To not know me or care how mom was getting on.
But no worries, I assure you she was strong,
Right up until the day that she was gone.

I hope she’d like the man that my wife married.
Our kids are growing up fast, true and strong.
Our house is filled with love and hope and caring.
Just like the one I lived in with my Mom.

Chorus

Old wool sweater

May

Alan Young
There's an old wool sweater,
 Hanging in my closet.
It's been years since it's felt the  weather.
This old friend of mine 
 It's a kinda worn and tattered,
It's colors Fade with time.
But the collar is still together,
Kept me warm inside.

I think of all the time it took,
Woven thread that intertloop
Touched with thought and care.
Knit one purl one and then again mixed with love until the end
Made with hands  that share.

There's an old wool sweater,
 Hanging in my closet.
It's been years since it's felt the  weather.
This old friend of mine 

Hand me down this woven ware
My father wore it when he was here
A gift he left for me

And I see you rocking there in your chair, granny glasses long gray hair
Aging smile with  deep blue eyes.
Humming songs of yesteryear, moments passed  a voice that's clear.
stories I love to hear.

There's an old wool sweater,
Safely put away.
its fibers tell a story.
Of the  love  you gave.

Sprinkling cheer at every stop

I’m ready to make a big meal
Bright colors and holiday feel

Peanut Butter Whiskey

Peanut Butter Whiskey
By Wallace Chase: Double You See Music, 2002

Chorus:
Peanut butter whiskey,
you know it's kind of risky,
so come on baby pour us a glass.
It makes your body tickle
enough to make you giggle.
We’ll sip it slow and make it last.
I don’t want your rum or your tequila.
I’m a Tennessee mountain-made believer.
Just open up that bottle of peanut butter whiskey tonight
and hold tight.

Verse 1:
When I was just a baby
and I was acting crazy.
My mama had the flask in her purse.
First, she’d take a swallow
then put some in my bottle,
I guess that’s why the drink is my curse.

When I was seventeen
I was tall, cool, and lean.
A hard-riding rhythm machine.
I liked Kahlua in my coffee,
for lunch, I liked my saki.
And Sour Diesel put me to sleep.

PreChorus:
Ooh
but when I needed something
to hit the groove and
really get me pumpin, it was

I’m a Tennessee mountain-made believer.
Just open up that bottle of peanut butter whiskey tonight.


Verse 2:
When I started working
and my head would be hurting,
I need something to settle my nerves.
So I would pop a beer, maybe 2, 3, or 4.
It didn’t cut it so I headed straight to
the liquor store for my

Oh Give me
Peanut butter whiskey,

Gaggle of Love

May

2022

John Garbo & Jim Findlay
Verse
I got a gaggle of love for you honey
Way down in my heart
I got a gaggle of love for you baby
It’s tearing me apart
I call your name, I get down on my knees
I love you more than a plate of black-eyed peas
You’re even better than a good hard sneeze

I got a gaggle of love for you honey
Leaves a lump in my throat
I got a gaggle of love for you baby
I think you got my goat
I’m pullin’ my hair and rubbin’ my eyes
I love you more than Lincoln and apple pie
It’s one of those things money can’t buy

Bridge
Come to me baby, come to me baby, come to me
I want to love you, I want to love you, oh darlin’ can’t you see

Verse
I got a gaggle of love for you honey
Running down my leg
I got a gaggle of love for you baby
Please don’t make me beg
I’ll mortgage the house, I’ll buy us a car
I’ll even sell my Bently guitar
I’ll make you feel bigger than a Hollywood star

Steering wheel

May

2022

Paul Boedeker
(verse 1)
All these roads
look the same to me.
You decide, I will ride
turn the key.
Hold on tight
…both hands
live and learn, don’t crash and burn
that’s the plan.

(chorus)
I only point, where you make me
only go, wherever you take me
I can turn, but I can’t feel
Detroit steel, steering wheel
(verse 2)
spend today
It’s yours to use
bet it all, it’s your call
win or lose.
if I could wish
my wish for you
simply be, that dream you see
will come true.

(bridge)
I won’t tell you where to go
or what to do once you get there
don’t need to know
the why or the wherefore
Memphis side street
Abilene fencerow
winding curve
or straight and narrow
I can turn, but I can’t feel
Detroit steel, steering wheel

(repeat chorus)
Wherever He Leads Me

May

2022

Buddy Trotter
V1
Walking down a dark and lonely road
Can’t decide how far to go
A crossroad is just up ahead
Which way to turn I just don’t know

C1
Wherever He leads me I will go
I’m not certain of the path I need
Surely God will extend His hand
He knows the way better than me

V2
What destination? I’m not sure, but He shows the way
For He knows my worth
My knowledge is only of this world
His realm is of heaven and earth

C2
Wherever He leads me I will go
I’m not certain of the path I need
Surely God will extend His hand
He knows the way better than me

Br
If I choose the wrong path
I know He’ll lead me away
I have to trust He’s taking me
Where I need to be this day

C3
Wherever He leads me I will go
I’m not certain of the path I need
Surely God will extend His hand
He knows the way better than me
He knows the way better than me

907 © 2022, Warren Hanson

verse 1
The numbers on our house were 907
Where I grew up in that small Dakota town.
My dad had nailed them up there on a ladder.
Last time I looked, the seven had fallen down.
That house was the first home that I remember,
And the last thing that I saw a I drove away.
It looked so small in the rearview mirror,
But it was big enough to love me, even when I couldn’t stay.

chorus
The child in me still lives at 907.
It was paradise on the western edge of town.
I never will get closer to God’s heaven
Than I did when I lived at 907.

verse 2
The houses all around were filled with children.
We would play the day away all summer long.
When my mother rang the bell beside the back door,
Time for supper, time for me to head on home.
Then in Westside Park, the locusts started humming,
Like a choir singing hymns in the summer night.
I was thirteen in that park, as the sky was getting dark,
When I kissed a girl for the first time in my life.

chorus

bridge
907. I always will remember.
Warm and safe in bed from the chill December wind.
And the dreams I had back then have come true in who I am.
907. I will never see you again.

WRITER:
( I add6(add9) – bVIImaj7(1st inv) – i9 – biii13sus4 )
Can’t read my mind
My story looted
Grieving for a path
On a map that’s a relic
Ashen, in ruins
Trying to piece it all together
Can’t read my story
How can I restore?

CHARACTER (5/4):
( vi add11—bVII maj7 – Vsus4(b6) – vi add6(add11) – V7sus4)
Hypnotized by my lies: “It’ll all work out”
Paralyzed, hear my cries, hovering through walls.
Like constellations or temptations, there’s always a myth
Revered as truth or deceit
Will my life ever hang in somebody’s night sky?
Rotating like a mobile
I surrender, a repenter, coerced to the end
Hear the laughter, hereafter, I lost my nerve

Been chained inside a box.
