Last Day of Forever
Writers: C.L. Milburn & J.R. Rosenberger

Intro:

Verse 1:
You swore you’d always love me forever
You and I were like birds of a feather
You made a promise you couldn’t keep Talk like that’s so cheap
A high price I’ll pay, in every way

Chorus:
And today is the Last Day of Forever
And last night was our last night together
Now you think you’ve found someone who’s better
Darling today’s the Last Day of Forever

Verse 2:
So next time don’t say you’ll stay forever
Cause a lie doesn’t help to make love any better
I really believed you’d never leave, I was so naive
You sure deceived me, now you say you don’t need me

Chorus:
Now today is the Last Day of Forever
And last night was our last night together
Now you think you’ve found someone who’s better
Honey today’s the Last Day of Forever

Bridge:
Said your love would last till the end of time
Now we’re standing at the end of the line

Chorus:
So today is the Last Day of Forever
And last night was our last night together
Now you think you’ve found someone who’s better
Now today’s the Last Day of Forever

Tag:
Yes today’s the Last Day of Forever

Skinny Dippin’-jim gill
(BMI does not stand for Broadcast Music International. It stands for Body Mass Index)

I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’ skinny dippin’ is not for me.
I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’ skinny dippin is not for me

1. My BMI is way too high for this frame o’ mine
According to my BMI I should be six foot nine!
2. When God passed out the skinny genes,
must have passed me by
So I can’t buy those skinny jeans
they won’t rise past my thighs.

I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’ skinny dippin’ is not for me.
I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’ skinny dippin is not for me

Bridge When I go swimming a swimming suit suits me just fine.
I need more on than my birthday suit
to enjoy my swim time

I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’ skinny dippin’ is not for me.
I’m too fat to go skinny dippin’
it’d be a sight that you couldn’t unsee
I guess I’ll have to settle for chunky dunkin’

Bottle Rocket © Ray Wyatt 2022

Bottle rocket in my hand
Dripping sparkles in the sand
Blazing deep into the night
Splashing colors in my weary eyes
I don’t know where you came down
Embers glowing on the lawn
Ten-cent bottle rocket, won’t you tell me where you’ve gone

Bottle rocket in the sky
Oh, so stunning when you fly by
Will you tell me what you see?
High above the earth that you had to leave
I can’t see you where you fell
Drifting down before the dawn
Ten-cent bottle rocket, won’t you tell me where you’ve gone

<Hmmmmmmm…..>
If I could see it through your eyes
Then I would not have to try
To make sense of this sorrow, bottle rocket
Glowing in the sky

Now you’ve fallen to the deep
Dark and ashen and your soul to keep
Never more again to fly
Left alone with no goodbye
But I will see you once again
High above this mortal sun
Ten-cent bottle rocket, won’t you tell me where you’ve gone

"Sweet Pain"

Sweet Pain

I hold my breath till the feeling passes away
Just anything to stop thinking of you

You brought me to the Garden of Eden
Held my hands as I melt in your eyes
Never knowing where this ship is heading
Straight for the rocks, I have to save it in time

But it’s your sweet pain
Promises that you made
Holding out as I hold my breath
Baby I want the sweet pain

The fever breaks but the aches linger for days
Where’s the drug to cure the desire for you

Anticipation can be agonizing
You play it well don’t know how you survive
Cruising for the love we both are missing
Putting the brakes on this wild ride

But it’s your sweet pain
Promises that you made
Holding out as I hold my breath
Baby I want the sweet pain

But’s it’s your sweet pain
Wishing you made me stay
Holding me at arm’s length
Baby I want the sweet pain

But it’s your sweet pain
Promises that you made
Holding out as I hold my breath
Baby I want the sweet pain

Politician

Michael and Marietta Roebuck

2022

POLITICIAN, POLITICIAN WHO DO YOU SERVE
THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED YOU OR THEM THAT PAY YOUR CASH RESERVES
THE WORLD IS WATCHING WHILE YOU SIT AND TIE THE LAW IN KNOTS
ITS TIME REEVALUATE THE CONGRESS THAT WE GOT

RICH MAN RICH MAN WHEN WILL YOU LEARN
THERE’S MORE OF US THAN THERE ARE OF YOU AND WE WILL NOT RETURN
TO THOSE SLAVE-DRIVING WAGE-STARVING DAYS OF YESTERYEAR
YOU BETTER LISTEN UP WHILE YOU CAN STILL LEND AN EAR

THE PEOPLE NEED A REAL SOLUTION
ITS TIME YOU PASS A RESOLUTION

MILITARY, MILITARY HOW MANY BOMBS MUST FALL
UNTIL YOU REALIZE THAT ALL YOUR BOMBS CANNOT RESOLVE
THE DIVISION THAT EXISTS BETWEEN THE WEAK AND THE STRONG
THE WEAKER SIDE IS GROWING AND THEY WILL NOT BE DISSOLVED

JUST TRY TO AVOID A REVOLUTION
SOME PEOPLE SAY ITS GONNA COME
WE CAN’T BELIEVE IN FAKE SOLUTIONS
IT’S ABOUT TO COME UNDONE IT’S ABOUT TO COME UNDONE

Starting in the dark we feel the need
Before the trauma of the seed

Until our separated anxious pangs
Starting on a journey drifting out
Always circling back to our need

Not understanding we won’t succeed

Imprinted at birth without a mold
Are we ever really on our own
We seek others love and compare it to home
Reconciling our blood and bone

And bone

We have our own and feel the same Connected love in our veins
Can it be we hold the light. In our souls birthed that night

Tucumcari Tonight

September

John Garbo and Jim Findlay

2022

Verse
It’s just a little town in the middle of nowhere
But I can’t wait till it comes into sight
There’s a pretty little gal that’s waiting for me
Yes it’s Tucumcari tonight

Twenty-seven hours at 80 miles an hour
Because she said that she just might
Make me the happiest man in the valley
And it’s Tucumcari tonight

Chorus
Tucumcari tonight, Tucumcari tonight
I can’t wait to get back to New Mexico
It’s Tucumcari tonight

Verse
When the day goes down on Tucumcari
Everything’s gonna be alright
There’ll be a smile on the lips of one lucky little lady
And it’s Tucumcari tonight

Through the sunroof I can see the millions of stars
So far from the city lights
Slow it down daddy, speed it up mamma
It’s Tucumcari tonight

Chorus
Tucumcari tonight, Tucumcari tonight
I can’t wait to get back to New Mexico
It’s Tucumcari tonight

Bridge
I can hear her voice above the highway noise
On the wind coming from above
Hurry home to me, hurry home to me
You’re the one that I love

Verse
It’s just a little town in the middle of nowhere
But I can’t wait till it comes into sight
There’s a pretty little gal that’s waiting for me
Yes it’s Tucumcari tonight

Chorus
Tucumcari tonight, Tucumcari tonight
I can’t wait to get back to New Mexico
Tucumcari tonight

Tucumcari tonight, Tucumcari tonight
Once is not enough, no once is not enough
Oh I’ve got to get back to New Mexico
And Tucumcari tonight

The River Will (Conscience Speaks)

The River Will (Conscience Speaks)

Turn around...this is not a road to travel alone
Danger ahead...it's dark and foggy but I keep driving on
I'm heading to a place, I'm heading to a place where I don't belong ooh, ohh

Turn around...didn't I see the signs long ago?
Danger ahead...hit the breaks! There's a bridge out on this road
It's a long way down, it's a long way down and the water is deep and cold

If the fall doesn't get me the river will...If the fall doesn't get me the river will
If the fall doesn't get me the river will

Turn around...there's still time to change my mind
Danger ahead…the farther I drive the farther from the light
I'm lying to myself, lying to myself when I say I'll be just fine

If the fall doesn't get me the river will...If the fall doesn't get me the river will
If the fall doesn't get me the river will

Bullet Hole

September

Wallace Chase

2022

Verse 1:
My friends would say “Y’all belong in a love song”
Now they ask me “What the hell went wrong?”
They say “I thought she was the one”
And I say “yeah she was second to none”
But I guess I owe everyone the truth
now that she kicked me out and the rumors are true.

Verse 2
Well I guess you could say we had a fight
on account of me stumbling in late at night
lipstick on my neck and glitter on my jeans.
I tried to explain but she started to scream

Pre Chorus 1
I said “woman, don’t act like a child”
Then her eyes went red and she went buck wild.

Chorus 1
She took a kitchen knife to my rockin’ chair.
Kicked a dent in my car that can’t be repaired.
Pushed my TV down a whole flight of stairs.
Then she slapped me so hard, I’m mentally impaired.

Post Chorus
But I still thought we could work it out until she went too far and put a bullet hole in my guitar.
A bullet. A bullet. A bullet.

Verse 3
So let this be a cautionary tale.
If you cheat on your girl, she’s bound to prevail.
You may think that she’ll never know
and you may try to keep things on the down low.
But sooner or later she’s gonna find out
and you better believe she’s gonna do more than shout.

Pre Chorus 2
You could wind up beaten and scarred
or possibly worse, she could shoot your guitar.

Chorus 2
She took gasoline and a match to my bed.
And she knocked me out and she shaved my whole head.
All across my back, I got tire tread
Because she ran over me and left me for dead.

Chorus 1

Chorus 2

Close To Christmas

September

Warren Hanson

2022

verse 1
It isn’t even close to Christmas.
The weather isn’t cold outside.
No reindeer on the rooftop, no gifts beneath a tree,
And Santa isn’t getting ready for his ride.

chorus
It isn’t even close to Christmas.
That jolly holiday is months away.
But the feeling that it gives me just having you here with me
Has that close to Christmas magic ev’ry day.

verse 2
It isn’t even close to Christmas.
No chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
We don’t need mistletoe to make our spirits glow,
Or Yuletide carols being sung by a choir.

chorus
It isn’t even close to Christmas.
That jolly holiday is months away.
But the feeling that it gives me just having you here with me
Has that close to Christmas magic ev’ry day

bridge
Maybe it’s July or February,
Maybe the summer or the autumn or the spring.
Loving you makes ev’ry season merry.
I don’t need cold or snow to hear those sleigh bells ring.

chorus
It isn’t even close to Christmas.
That jolly holiday is months away.
But the feeling that it gives me just having you here with me
Has that close to Christmas magic ev’ry day

outro
I love the feeling that you give me
Any time that you are with me.
It’s that close to Christmas magic ev’ry day.

Time's the Greatest Distance (feat. Brittany Villamil)

September

Tim Bentley, Josh David Walker, Nathan Gard

2022

VERSE 1:
I saw a friend I used to know
When I was someone else
I tried to think of what we had
and how I really felt
But times the greatest distance
It grows as memories fade
There's nothing any sadder than
the hearts that lose their way

CHORUS
When I think about the times
that we shared
It always makes me smile
What I wouldn’t give to go back in time
Just for a little while

VERSE 2:
I saw a friend I used to love
A long time ago
I tried so hard to make it work
But love just didn't grow
And times the greatest healer
for wounds we won't admit
They lay sleeping in our memories
Until time lets us forget

CHORUS
When I think about the times
that we shared
It always makes me smile
It always makes me smile
What I wouldn’t give to go back in time
Just for a little while

BRIDGE:
Our lives have carried on
And I wouldn’t change a thing
But just to go back in time
To see you smile at me

CHORUS/OUTRO
When I think about the times
that we shared
It always makes me smile
Smile!
It always makes me smile
Yeah, Yeah ……
You make me smile
You make me smile

Ending won’t be easy, that's true
don't know how I would get over you
Our love trie-ied for years to stay
your bottles slow-ly poured it all away

CHORUS:
And there’s a …
Wine glass in your hand tonight
more on ice to cool just right
Drown our love in alcohol
you won’t stop until we fall a-part ...
You’d love me forever, you said
But you love your red wine… instead

Yes, we had some good years, that’s true
then came words and bottles that you threw
Our love broke to pieces on that ground
each night you drink your wine …to wash ‘em down

CHORUS:
And there’s a …
Wine glass in your hand tonight
more on ice to cool just right
Drown our love in alcohol
you won’t stop until we fall a-part ...
You’d love me forever, you said
But you love your red wine… instead

BRIDGE:
Spilled glass sits lonely in the dawn
when you wake up …you’ll see that I’m ..gone…


OUTRO CHORUS
And there’s a …
Wine glass in your hand tonight
more on ice to cool just right
Drowned our love in alcohol
didn’t stop until we fell a-part ...
You’d love me forever, you said
Now you’ll love your red wine… instead

OUTRO:
Now you’ll love your red wine… instead
You’ll always love your red wine …insteaa-aaad…

A Lifetime of Lonesome

August

Paul Boedeker

2022

(verse 1)
So he left you and broke your heart
… tore your whole world apart
Left you stranded here in the dark
lost and all alone
Can’t forget those days gone by
…the memory makes you cry
Why don’t you just say goodbye
to the teardrops and then some
to your lifetime of lonesome

(verse 2)
Those sad, sad eyes
heavy shoulders and heavier sighs
It’s really no surprise
you’re still on your own
Chasing down every dead end street
to rendezvous with defeat
if you landed on easy street
I’d still hear you moan
about a lifetime of lonesome

(chorus)
It’s a lifetime of lonesome
not letting it go
get’s you nothin’ in the long run
but a lifetime of lonesome

(bridge)
shake all the windows
rattle the doors
roll up your sorrow
get out on the dance floor
you get what you pay for
nothing less and nothing more
never fought is never won
it’s a lifetime of lonesome

(verse 3)
You can rise from the ashes
Shine like the sun
Shed not another teardrop
You don’t have to run
So make your decision
Draw your line in the sand
….say goodbye
To that same old sad song
To your lifetime of lonesome

(chorus)
Give up that lifetime of lonesome
Go on and let it go
It get’s you nothin’ in the long run
but a lifetime of lonesome
nothin’ in the long run
but a lifetime of lonesome

Barbecue Breeze

August

Randy Parker Hall

2022

We’ve all waited all winter
And now we’re well past the last freeze
Put this one on your calendar
I’m ready for the Barbecue Breeze

Barbecue Breeze, a soft wind under the trees
Smoke and smells, and lots of good people as well
I’ll take a plate and a plastic cup, please
And sit with you in the Barbecue Breeze

The men set up places to sit
And tap foam for folks like me
The ladies set out covered sides
More flavor for the Barbecue Breeze

Barbecue Breeze, a soft wind under the trees
Smoke and smells, and lots of good people as well
I’ll take a plate and a plastic cup, please
And sit with you in the Barbecue Breeze

Hickory or Oak, Pecan or Mesquite?
I’ve heard the debates, out in the Barbecue Breeze

Barbecue Breeze, a soft wind under the trees
Smoke and smells, and lots of good people as well
I’ll take a plate and a plastic cup, please
And sit with you in the Barbecue Breeze

Music’s up loud and kids are runnin’ around
Still I hear ‘thank you’ and ‘please’
All ages, races, and ethnicities
Together in the Barbecue Breeze

Barbecue Breeze, a soft wind under the trees
Smoke and smells, and lots of good people as well
I’ll take a plate and a plastic cup, please
And sit with you in the Barbecue Breeze

I’ll take a plate and a plastic cup, please
And sit with you in the Barbecue Breeze

I Was Solo Till I Met You but now we Duet Together-jim gill.org

CHORUS
GUY: I was so low till I met you I didn't think I had a chance
GAL: I was so low till I met you and you asked me to dance
BOTH: and as we flew around the floor we found
we were songbirds of a feather
yeah we once were so low, but now wherever we go
we duet together.

VERSE 1 GAL
Life for me was a soliloquy from an ivy balcony
I sang to stars and mournful winds of him who could never be
I was so depressed, who’d have ever guessed
I’d meet someone like You
But at your request you put my feet to the test
And it was almost too good to be true …Cause

GAL: I was so low till I met you I didn't think I had a chance
GUY: I was so low till I met you and you agreed to a dance
BOTH: and as we flew around the floor we found
we were songbirds of a feather
yeah we once were so low, but now wherever we go we
duet together.

VERSE 2 GUY
Life for me was a mournful dirge, always in a minor key
I tried everything I could to purge those doldrums from me
I was so depressed, who'd have ever guessed
I'd meet someone like you
But then you said, “Yes” and put my feet to the test and
it was almost too good to be true.

BRIDGE
GAL: Life was acapella, till I met my fella
and his “a company meant” all the world to me
GUY: Life was obligato till you shook up my vibrato
and made a moonstruck warbler outa me.

GUY: I was so low till I met you I didn't think I had a chance
GAL: I was so low till I met you and you asked me to dance
and as we flew around the floor we found
we were songbirds of a feather
yeah we once were so low, but now wherever we go we
duet together.
yeah we once were so low,
but now wherever we go
we duet
together.

It's True

Jay Harris

2022


Have you ever seen a mountain side, glitter with Aspen gold
Peaking through Ponderosa pines and quaking in the cold
Scores have tried to capture such a sight with mortal words
But no ones ever done it yet, least nothing that I’ve heard.

You do that to me, yes you do.
You make everything I see alive and new.
You do that to me, no words to use.
To describe the way I feel when I’m alone with you.

Yes it’s true.
You make me feel so good I don’t know what to do.
Yes its true
It’s a feeling I can only get from you.


Have you ever seen a star lit night, with a crisp breeze in the air,
Seasons changing for a rest, it’s a fine time of the year.
Holding hands beneath a blanket , knowing all the home town cheers.
Feeling innocent and hopeful, like the best is very near.

You do that to me, yes you do.
You bring me feelings that are new and fresh and true.
You do that to me, ummm
I’m, learning something special’s happening right here with me and you.

Yes its true
You make me feel so good I don’t know what to do.
Yes its true
It’s a feeling I can only get from you.

I don’t have a doubt that that this was meant to happen.
Like a sunrise has to start off every day.
I never knew that I was capable of laughing
Finding fun in every silly thing or look I send your way.
It’s so nice to let things go and let life play.

Yes its true
You make me feel so good I don’t know what to do.
Yes its true
It’s a feeling I can only get from you.

Sweet Dreams
By Pam Grisham, August 2022

The sun comes up over the mountain
You turn earth and stone with your strong hands
I tend to my flowers and my fountains
A thousand miles away on burning sand…but I’ve got
Sweet dreams of your warm eyes
Sweet dreams of your tender smile
Sweet dreams of your hand on mine, I’ve got…sweet dreams

The sun sets through your kitchen window
You cook up some dinner and then you rest
Reach for your blanket and your pillow
I’m already sleeping in my bed…but I’ve got
Sweet dreams of your warm eyes
Sweet dreams of your tender smile
Sweet dreams of your hand on mine, I’ve got…sweet dreams

Another day, another night…it’s all the same routine
Another day, another night…but I’ve got dreams…sweet dreams
Sweet dreams of your warm eyes
Sweet dreams of your tender smile
Sweet dreams of your hand on mine, I’ve got…sweet dreams

Sweet dreams of your warm eyes
Sweet dreams of your tender smile
Sweet dreams of your lips on mine, I’ve got…sweet dreams

Just The Way I Am
By Patricia Bishop and Jesse Navarro ©August 2022

V1
You know I’ve never cared about
Big noisy crowds
People bumping into each other
Like a can of packed sardines
With no space in between
Makes me feel like I’m being smothered

Chorus 2x
That’s just the way I am
I ain’t never gonna change
Gotta have some room to breathe
Gotta feel at ease
That’s just the way I am

V2
I like staying home
With a few of my friends
Grilling in the backyard
I’ve always been a drinking man
Cold beer from a can
Telling jokes and playing cards

Chorus 2x
That’s just the way I am
I ain’t never gonna change
Gotta have some room to breathe
Gotta feel at ease
That’s just the way I am

Bridge
My wife says I'm a dud, a stick in the mud
Because I won’t meet her friends after work
I’m sure they think I’m a jerk

Chorus 2x
That’s just the way I am
I ain’t never gonna change
Gotta have some room to breathe
Gotta feel at ease
That’s just the way I am

Tag
Never gonna put on a suit and tie
Burn me when I die
Just the way I am

I see a life just like,
The life of all her friends. 
She desire and believes,
In all the things that she wants.
With all the things that the lady wants
In a woman's touch.

I see her struggle, she's working,
To make money she needs to survive.
I see good times, bad times, hard times
Day by day till the day ends
She works and builds on her relationship
for the live that's in her heart.
She strides and looks for pleasure
In a woman's touch.

Those who give her same old looks
They have questions in there eyes
They sit and judge and ponder
And then they wonder why.
They say it doesn't bother them
And then they hurry by.
Afraid to see the affection 
In a woman's touch.

BRIDGE
Sometimes she's one of the boys,
Other times she's gentle and sweet.
I've seen her full of laughter
And lying quiet while she sleeps.
We have joked and drank a beer or to
Like the buddies we always are
I know she looks for passion there
In a woman's touch.

Some folks think they know her
Others just say they do.
Her privacy no secret
We all live the life we choose.
Finding love is hard to do
No matter who you are
My sister l reach out to you.
In a loving touch.

I Don't Care if the Devil Knows

I Don't Care if the Devil Knows
.
Life is a Long and Uncertain Road
The Rock of The Lord is
The Stone in my Soul
I don't care if the devil knows
.
I don't care if the devil knows
I've got Stone in my Soul!
Life is a Long and Uncertain Road
Through cities of silver and gold
All bursting with wretched & poor
Why should we care if he knows?
.
The devil's at my shoulder
I must keep him behind Thee
The Guardian Angel shines a light ahead for me
I'll stay to the Path of Righteousness
No matter where it goes
I don't care if the devil even ..
.
I don't care if the devil knows
I've got Stone in my Soul!
Life is a Long and Uncertain Road
.
There are Angels all around us
There are devils in our midst
Stay to the Light of Salvation
No darkness can exist!
Just follow the Path of Righteousness
No matter where it goes and
You won't care if the devil even ..
.
I don't care if the devil knows
'Cause I've got Stone in my Soul!
Life is a Long and Uncertain Road

V1
Walk in the garden share the fire
Free the birds and my desire
Left at the brook show me the light
Pausing often in the/this quiet life

Rains wet embrace covers the sweat
Hopping then stones on the river set/bank
Edges of comfort peel away
Pausing often in this quiet life

I see you be the quenching rain
I see you be my guide
When you don’t, I see you

Sand drifts down from the top of the dunes
Finding balance as the moon shines through

Catching the wind in your hair
The toils of of life with out a care

Seeds floating down from your hands
Leaving the soil in our care
Trees lift their branches in your love
The toils of of life with out a care
New life is born with out a care

My eyes are open now and I want to share

Lose yourself and couldn't fly at all?
To have faith, you dream,
Your wings are gone

There is still heaven in your world
lost inside that lonely girl

Take yourself outside over your wall
Free yourself and leap to heaven's call

I Notice Everything

August

Warren Hanson

2022

verse 1
I notice everything. I always did.
I’ve noticed little things ever since I was a kid.
How water circles as it gurgles down the drain.
How you can smell it coming just before the rain.
How far glass can scatter when it shatters on the floor.
Lately I notice you don’t love me anymore.

verse 2
I notice everything ’bout me and you.
How I can’t make you laugh the way I used to do.
How you don’t hum that old song standing at the sink.
How you don’t seem to ever ask me what I think.
You used to love it when I’d notice what you wore.
Lately I notice you don’t love me anymore.

bridge
People change, and they can grow apart.
We can’t expect to stay the way that we were at the start.
We used to love the love we both depended on.
It’s hard not to notice when it’s gone.

verse 3
I notice everything. I always will.
I used to think you loved that part of me, until
One day I could see you didn’t treat me like before.
Lately I notice you don’t love me anymore.

Fallen Apart

Verse 1
Here we go one more time
I don’t want to fight but we’re crossing the line
Using triggering words
Passed the warning signs
I don’t want to fight but we’re crossing the line

Verse 2
Every time it’s the same routine
I’ll beg you to stay then you’ll go and leave
I know we can change
But I’m not naïve
I’ll beg you to stay then you’ll go and leave

Chorus
Oh and I’m not trying to tear down what I’ve built with you
But for the first time I really believe you, when you say your through
We don’t need another brand-new start
I don’t have the tools to fix your broken heart
And we can’t build a life together if we’ve already fallen apart

Verse 3
I can’t repair your hurt inside
But I’m willing to try for the rest of my life
Yeah I’ll take the blame
I’ll pay the price
Yeah I’m willing to try for the rest of my life

Chorus

Bridge
I wish I’d never failed you or let you down
Now I’m in the fight just to set us right back on solid ground

Half Chorus
We don’t need another brand-new start
I don’t have the tools to fix your broken heart
And we can’t build a life together if we’ve already fallen
We’ve already Fallen Apart

THE BEAST

Bucky and Marietta Roebuck

2022

V1
THERE’S A DEVIL AMONGST US THAT’S LIGHTER THAN AIR
AND HE SEEKS TO DIVIDE WITH DISSENSION AND FEAR
TEMPEST TOSSED DRENCHED IN A THUNDERING STORM
LIGHTNING REVEALS THERE’S A CURVE IN THE ROAD
CHORUS 1
THE BREEZE MAKES THE TREES COME ALIVE IN THE NIGHT
MAGNIFICIENT BIRDS SWIM THROUGH STARS BENDING LIGHT
THEY SEARCH FOR A SMALL ONE THAT WILL BE THEIR FEAST
HOW COULD ANYONE LOVE SUCH A PITIFUL BEAST
V2
WE’RE NOT MEANT TO LIVE ALL ALONE HE’S BEEN TOLD
AND GOOD CONVERSATION IS FARE FOR THE SOUL
BUT HE TALKS TO HIS PAPER INSTEAD OF HIS FRIENDS
CAUSE PAPER JUST LISTENS, IT NEVER PRETENDS
CHORUS 2
LIFE IS ILLUSORY SOARS LIKE A BIRD
FRENETIC COLLECTIONS OF FRACTIONS AND WORDS
PAINFUL IMPRESSIONS OF WHEN HE’S FELT LEAST
HOW COULD ANYONE LOVE SUCH A PITIFUL BEAST

V3
THE BEAST BECOMES RESTLESS AND NEEDS TO BE HEARD
SO HE HUDDLES WITH OTHERS TO CHANT CHOSEN WORDS
HE’S LEFT FEELING DESOLATE, RETURNS TO HIS PEN
THE PAPER IS WAITING TO HELP HIM CONTEND
CHORUS 3
HE LAYS AWAKE PONDERING EVENTS OF THE DAY
RECALLS VISITATIONS, WHAT DID HE CONVEY
KIND MEASURES WERE TAKEN, STILL HE'S INCOMPLETE
HOW COULD ANYONE LOVE SUCH A PITIFUL BEAST
V4
A CLOWN LOATHES A WISE MAN, BUT WISDOM IS FLEET
ONE MAN’S CONDEMNATION’S ANOTHER’S DECEIT
BUT JUDGEMENT IS TEMPORAL, LESS THAN HIMSELF
IF HE MAKES A CONCESSION, HE’S BACK ON THE SHELF
CHORUS 4
LIFE IT WILL LANGUISH WHILE HE’S ON THE PAGE
IF HE SAT DOWN AND WATCHED IT, NOTHING WOULD CHANGE
A CULPABLE CHARACTER REEKS OF CONCEIT
HOW COULD ANYONE LOVE SUCH A PITIFUL BEAST

Chupacabra

Chupacabra ©Ray Wyatt 2022

Last night I heard a tapping on my window
I drew back the curtain to see what I could see
There he stood in all his mystical glory; I saw
Chupacabra staring back at me

I opened up the window and asked him his business
I said sir, whatever can I do for you?
He said I’m here to ask you for one small favor
And if it works out, I can help you too

Just in case you don’t know what a Chupacabra is, I’ll tell you
He’s a cross between a bobcat, a gorilla and a wolf
He has big red eyes and claws like a grizzly
Kills wild animals and drinks their blood

C> Woohoo, Chupacabra
Woohoo, he won’t let me be. (Spell on me/Set me free)
Woohoo, Chupacabra
Chupacabra got his eyes on me.

He said, my baby got mad and then she walked out on me last night
So I need some poetry so I can win her back
If you would just jot down a rhyme or a jingle or two,
I could call her up and get things back on track.

Well, I rubbed my eyes and tried to make some sense of the situation
You see, I was feeling a little neglected lately too
I scratched out some verses for an ode to his lover
Crossed my fingers and hoped that it would do

C>
He took one look with those big red eyes
Let out a howl and I was paralyzed with fear
He blew a puff of smoke and I passed out cold
When I woke up, he had disappeared!

Ever since that night, the grass seems a little bit greener
And I feel a whole lot better now; that’s what I believe
So always be kind to a heartbroken stranger
You never know what kind of spell he weaves
So, if you ever hear a tapping on your window
Open the window and see what’s stirring out there
You might see nothing but a bright full moon
But, listen closely and you might hear

Cruisin In Mu Car (Ragtop Down)

Sunshine on my face
Cool wind in my hair
An open road
A tank of gas
Ain't got to be nowhere

Gonna see my babe tonight
We're gonna cruise beneath stars
Don't matter where we're going to
When we're cruisin in my car

Gorgeous summer day
With the rag-top down
Good tunes on the stereo
As we drive the car around

Gonna see my babe tonight
We're gonna cruise beneath stars
Don't matter where we're going
When we're cruisin in my car

Driving down the beach
Soaking up the air
At night the stars seem so close
You can almost touch them there

Gonna see my babe tonight
We're gonna cruise beneath stars
Don't matter where we're going to
When we're cruisin in my car

Possible Bridge
Tap the brakes
downshift, hold on tight
punch into the curve
It’s gonna be alright

Love in Vain

August

Andrew Fischer

2022

I took my baby to the station
She was on her way back home
She left me there on the platform waving
Bye, bye, bye — all alone

I said goodbye to my baby
She lives oh so far away
I watched the train roll off with my fingers crossed
And I prayed, prayed — she’ll come back some day

Baby, tell me: Was my love in vain?
All my love in vain

I watched that train roll away
Roll away around the bend
I knew right then this idyll of ours
Had finally come to an end

Baby, tell me: Was my love in vain?
All my love in vain

April Bergeron, you are always on my mind
Your thought stays with me like the smoke through the pines
The smell of your cookin’ and your Cajun good looks
April Bergeron, you are one for the books!

April Bergeron, you are always on my mind
Our first kiss goodnight, and each kiss goodbye
On your snow-white shoulder is where I belong
April Bergeron, I wanna sing you my song

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you!

April Bergeron, you are always by my side
We’ve laughed and we’ve cussed and we’ve kissed and we’ve cried
For ten thousand days and when every day is done
April Bergeron, you’re the one, you’re the one!

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you!

My heart is a bonfire in the night!
Oh, April, you make it bright –

April Bergeron, you are always on my mind
Your thought stays with me like the smoke through the pines
Fire in the kitchen and candles by the bed
April Bergeron, I like to see you in red

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you!
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you!

The Weight of Time

2022

The Weight of Time

Verse 1
The lines on my face seem deeper every day.
And your black hair has turned to gray.
My green eyes are starting to degrade.
and some of our best memories are beginning to fade.
I know that time is taking its toll
but we can get through anything that it has to throw.

Pre-Chorus
Sometimes the years get better
some get the better of me.
But with you, the years that are weighing me down
don’t seem so heavy.

Chorus
Like a bottle of wine baby, we get fine as the years unwind.
Well, they go by fast but our love will last like a star and its shine.
We’re in a phase with the burden of age and we’re well on down the road.
Seem like time is an endless mile, uphill with a heavy load.

Verse 2
We've been together now for such a long long time
and my only regrets are the times I made you cry.
I know that time is wasted on the youth,
and if time is all uphill baby I want a mountain with you.

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Post-Chorus
So put your hand in mine, we're gonna be fine.
Together baby we’ll carry the weight of time.

Bridge
Oh, this old world keeps rolling like a stone.
No, you don’t have to go at it alone.
And when it comes our time to go and cross the great divide
I’ll be there right by your side.

Meandering pathway thats temporary

Caresses my shins
New life dancing round with me

Breathing steady
Follow the path
Feeling the tempo of the sea

Just enough rhythm keeps me on time
Just enough rhythm is my sign

2 o'clock in the morning


2 o'clock in the morning
The sky is turning gray
In my mind I see a hurrican
Storm is on her way
There's no time for running
Guess I'll have to settle down
Out side the rain is pouring
In my mind its all around

Lightning  strikes are closer,
Thunder's rolling by.
Hail as big as golf balls
Like the tear drops from my eyes
Low depression spinning
Pressure takes its toll
I am sitting in my closet
I'm loosing all control


Chorus
Every day's  a memory
Every day's a storm
Akward interpretation
Sitting  here alone.
Wishing for the sunshine
Wishing for the day
Holding on to some how
Things will change my way


   Warning  sirens screaming
They echo in the night
Power's gone and darkness
It's the only thing in sight
Standing on the threshold
A storm that is isn't real
Taking life for granted
The moments that we steal.
Bridge

Reading there by candle light
A letter I found from you.
Age by time and memories,
Those suny days we knew
Storm you are the reason
A lifetime there was true
Moments laced with happiness
When my skies were blue


It's 2 o'clock in the morning
Storm is on the  loose.
Out side the moon is smiling
as the stars are being seduced
Happiness isn't promised
A gift not your to give
It changes like the weather
It changes how one lives

The Whisper

Jim Robeson

2022

I didnt know you were leaving
i didnt choose that day
you kept me safe from the grief
I would have faced anyway

I closed my eyes and dropped my head
you were sitting in that corner chair
you whispered across the void of time
so I would be prepared

I wish I could have chosen you
Filled you with all my dreams
All the years that passed between us
could have been differently

If I could just replace
Like a star that sits in time
Travel through a mirror
so you could see this face of mine

Busy life and deadlines to meet
paying bills on a one way street
Family came and I guess I was pulled away

Might be times we could have shared
sitting in your corner chair
Reaching out to me, you were reaching out to me


See me
Guide me
Lead me
you showed me you were there
you loved me
I can really see
Hard to understand
but its how it had to be

Now we traded places
I havent lost control
I look into their eyes
I see myself getting old

I knew the day would come along
I knew it was understood
I slowly close my eyes
just like I thought you would

See me
Guide me
Lead me
You showed me you were there

MOUNTAIN MOOD
Dan DeHart
Copyright Dan DeHart 1998
'
Rushing waters scream through a blue mountain stream.
Forest of Green, it seems like a dream.
Cool breezes of spring , it.’s so serene,
It sets the mood, the mountain mood.

Verse 2
Clean and cold, water flows, from up above
It splashes on logs, a concert it plays,
In nature’s way. It sets the mood,
The mountain mood.

CHORUS
I love the mountain air and hikes through nature’s trails.
It cleanses my soul from the cities so cold.
Scenes of such beauty, shared with those who truly
Set the mood, that mountain mood.

Verse 3
Aspens and vines, they’re for all time.
Beaver dams, branches of pines, they draw the lines
Through the wondrous scene,
That sets the mood, that mountain mood.

Oblivion

Andrew Fischer

2022

Do you remember
Fathomless emptiness
Shining above us
A pipe in your fingers
A taste on your tongue
And then nothing was real anymore

Take me back to sweet oblivion

Do you remember
A shower of comets
Falling in silence
They come down forever, ooh
In a maze without walls
But there ain’t no escape anyway

Take me back to sweet oblivion

Now that it’s over
And everyone’s sober
We howl at the sun
With this fever called living our lives

Take me back to sweet oblivion

[Instrumental]

Alternate Lyrics for Verse 2:
Do you remember
A shower of meteors
Falling in silence
It felt like forever, ooh
Was only a moment
That’s here and then gone evermore

Prepper's Holiday

VERSE
I turned on the TV to the news and got scared
Doomsday is coming it’s time to prepare
Bought all our guns half-price on Ebay
Another day in the bunker it’s a Prepper’s Holiday

Let’s sandbag the front porch surround it with wire
Our home is so cozy with a clear field of fire
We’ll polish the ammo serve it up on a tray
Dressed in our best camo it’s a Prepper’s Holiday

BRIDGE 1
We got bug out bags, 30 round mags
And 500 cans of spam
Not only that, we’ve got three cats
I hear they taste like ham

VERSE
The gold’s buried deep out in the backyard
When you know how to barter don’t need a credit card
Shoulder to shoulder we’ll keep the feds at bay
We’re not paying taxes it’s a Prepper’s Holiday

BRIDGE 2
I’ll blow you a kiss and you make a wish
And we’ll have nothing to fear
The family’s hid living off the grid
Drinking freeze dried beer

VERSE
We’ll build us a sky drone that flies through the blue
Soaring so sweetly as we spy upon you
We’ll weather disaster whatever comes our way
Sleeping with my blaster it’s a Prepper’s Holiday

RISE UP
Words and Music ©2022 by Melanie E Broussard

Lying on your back staring into space
Tears streaming down your face
Friend I’m tellin’ you, things will turn around
Soon as you lift your head off the ground
Rise up, c’mon and rise up

Sitting on that bench, lookin’ woebegone
So much that life has piled on.
Wish I had magic words to say
Life won’t always be this way.
Rise up, c’mon rise up.

CHORUS
If you don’t try you’ll never know..
Just how high you can go..
Rise up, rise up, rise up

BRIDGE
I’m not telling you anything new
You know what you got to do
Come on and rise up, rise up, rise up

The weight of the world crushes a soul
Don’t dig yourself a deeper hole.
You will work it all out in time.
Find a ladder and start that climb.
Rise up, c’mon rise up.

verse 1
Talk isn’t cheap. It’s worthless
If you don’t do what you say.
If your word’s no good, then why should I
Believe you anyway?
Promises are easy enough to make.
But your promises are too easy for you to break.

chorus
All thunder, no rain. All thunder, no rain.
You say you’ll do what you promise to,
But leave me high and dry again.
You make it sound like I can count on you
To come through with whatever you said.
But instead, you’re all thunder, no rain.

verse 2
I relied on you the last time.
I won’t make that mistake again.
You look out for yourself and nobody else
And get away with whatever you can.
The promises you broke I won’t forget
When my lightning strikes like you ain’t seen nothing yet.

There’s a storm on your horizon,
So get ready for a rainy day.
Then the tide is gonna be risin’,
Gonna wash your empty words away.

Return to Love

Return to Love

It’s been awhile since I took the plunge
The years of pain have faded away
I’ve met a person who’s awakened my soul
This may be a story that is yet to be told

I’ve lived in shadows of safe isolation
Never opened the door, giving in to revelation
Caution surrounds me, feelings are strong
Never stopped to think, what if I’m wrong?

As I get ready for our first dinner date
I’m leaving kind of early, so I won’t be late
Trying to remember what to do, what to say
Don’t want to get too heavy and scare her away

I’ve lived in shadows of safe isolation
Never opened the door, giving in to revelation
Caution surrounds me, feelings are strong
Never stopped to think, what if I’m wrong?

We talked for hours that night,
About the way we saw life, what we dream at night
The way we felt, how scared we both had been
To take a chance to find love again,

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

I’ve lived in shadows of safe isolation
Never opened the door, giving in to revelation
Caution surrounds me, feelings are strong
Never stopped to think, what if I’m wrong?

We got the feeling that it wouldn’t be long
When both of us felt that we really belonged
In each other’s arms for eternity
That my friend is the story you see

Doo, Doo Doo, Fade out

Can we stop this madness?
Do we even know how?

Feels like we’re being played

It happened again
But then we do nothing
Hope it won’t happen again
What are we thinking?

Missus Claus Is Bein’ Naughty Tonight

Randy Parker Hall

2022

Missus Claus Is Bein’ Naughty Tonight

Well, you’ve heard about Santa and his eight reindeer –
But, what’s the missus do one night every year?

She’s got a chubby hubby and he never shaves
She’s got a lot of elves thinkin’ she’s a maid
She’s been deckin’ the halls and wrapping all the presents, too
It’s more than enough to make her scream and shout
And a break should last more than a couple of hours
Momma needs a night on the town, and a good time, too!

She hasn’t decided just how far she’ll go
But you can only go ‘South’ when you’re at the North Pole
She always has a wild time in New Orleans
She likes Las Vegas and slot machines
One year on the border she was suckin’ on limes
And I’ve seen her with a sailor at the Florida line
And if Christmas falls on a Saturday night
She’ll waltz across Texas ‘til the morning light

Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight, Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
All year long, she’s been nice, but Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight, Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
If you see her, would you keep it quiet? Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight

She’s putting on a matching set of underwear
She’s rolling red stockings up her legs with care
She’s trying on hot outfits, about a dozen or so
An eggnog pep talk and her favorite song
Some berry red lipstick and her makeup's on
Momma shines like Christmas lights, and she’s ready to go!

She hasn’t decided just how far she’ll go
But you can only go ‘South’ when you’re at the North Pole
She always has a wild time in New Orleans
She likes Las Vegas and slot machines
One year on the border she was suckin’ on limes
And I’ve seen her with a sailor at the Florida line
And if Christmas falls on a Saturday night
She’ll waltz across Texas ‘til the morning light

Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight, Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
All year long, she’s been nice, but Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight, Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
If you see her, would you keep it quiet? Missus Claus is bein’ naughty tonight
Naughty tonight, naughty tonight, naughty tonight, whoooh!

Summer Coming
Weather change
Meeting in the Summer Rain
Looking Forward to
spend this time with you

You make me laugh
You make me cry
Wonder if im the other guy
Summers Coming
and sometimes there is rain

Do you still think of me
Do you still wait for me
waiting for me
to dance in the Summer Rain

I fall Behind
I stand Again written in a book
when we were Friends
Summers coming
and Sometime there is rain

Do you still think of me
Would you still wait for me
To dance with you
In the Summer Rain

you open Arms
reach out to me
All Those past sweet memories
Summers Coming
I smile when it Rains

Do you still Think of me
Do you still wait for me
To dance with you in the Summer Rain

A Shade of Blue

2022

A SHADE OF BLUE
I've got nothing to do ,
I've got nothing to say.
 I'm feeling a little crazy about you.
I've got nowhere to go,
 I've got no where to stay
Kind of leaning toward a shade of blue. 
I wrote a new song ,
To help me move a long
But I keep coming back to you
I heard them say
Love fades away
Fading towards a shade  of Blue
    Sky is turning a shade of gray ,
    With just a touch of you.
    Lightning strikes a solo tree ,
    Dividing  it in two.
    Nothing left to do,
    Hints a shade of Blue.
I see your smile,
A brand new style
Doing what you want to do.
I saw your eyes,
Brought my demise,
With the deepest shade of blue.

“It’s a Good World” by Jay Harris

When the morning sunlight finds me through my window.
I know its time for me to start a brand new day.
Who will I see, where will I be, what will bring a smile and pure joy out of me.
Maybe a sweet song, a bird sings day long.
A wagging tail friend, with love that has no end.

It’s a good world most days, despite what some might say,
Take a look around and tell me I’m not right.
It’s a good world most days, all its wonders set on display
To erase the doubts that sometimes fill our minds.
That hope and love are just too hard to find.
It’s all good most days.

Looking round me seems the colors have united
To deliver candy visions for my eyes.
A red bird flyby, a blue sky so high, green fields with red barns like a picture in my mind.
Crop rows of good things, to make my mouth sing
Flowers so bright, I have to close my eyes.
Chorus

I know too well its not all joy, pain and suffering still annoy,
Wrongs that make you want to drop and shake your head.
Injustice still alive and well, been here long as I can tell,
But I won’t let it take away the good I see, and believe.
Chorus

OH, MY NAME IS ANDREW JOHNSON
AND I AM MY FATHER'S SON
I LIVED THE LIFE HE CHOSE FOR ME
AND NOW IT’S NEARLY DONE

WHAT WAS ME WAS NOT TO BE
SO MY TRUE SELF WOULD HAVE TO WAIT
AND IN THE END IT'S PLAIN TO SEE
THAT TIME AND PLACE WOULD BE MY FATE

AS I LEARNED TO LIVE MY FATHER'S LIFE
EACH DAY BECAME A LIE
BUT THE ONLY FOOL I HAD TO BLAME
WAS THE FOOL WHO WOULD NOT TRY

AND A LIFE THAT IS HALF LIVED
IS A LIFE YOU'LL GROW TO HATE
SO YOU WILL END AS YOU BEGIN
WHEN TIME AND PLACE WOULD BE YOUR FATE

SOMEONE COMES WHILE SOMEONE GOES
DOWN LIFE'S ETERNAL ROAD
AND THOUGH WE EACH WALK ALONE
WE SHARE A COMMON LOAD

AND IN TIME YOU’LL COME TO FIND
THE TRUE PATH IS NEVER STRAIGHT
BUT A WELL-LIVED LIFE IS WORTH THE PRICE
SO MAY TIME AND PLACE BE NOT YOUR FATE

MY NAME IS ANDREW JOHNSON
AND I AM MY FATHER’S SON

14 years in Coffield, one of those in the hole. 9 more in Polunsky before he was 43 years old
Ooh
He covered the dirt with a plywood floor just before they took him away
Left an unfinished house a wife and a boy with a torn-up heart full of shame
Ooh
Sometimes he would send a birthday card or some handwritten poetry
It’s all I ever really knew about him and he knew even less about me
I never knew I could be so mad and sad at the same damn time
I was 8 years old at the DOC in the Sunday visitor’s line
He said “son when I get out of here, we’re gonna throw the ball around”
But late in winter of that same year, we laid my daddy down
Ooh Ooh
Grandpa put me in a corduroy suit and cinched my belt up tight
There were lots of people smoking cigarettes outside but it was deathly quiet
We rested him in an old pine box with a label of dates and his name
I hoped my hate would be buried with him but it hasn’t even let up a day
Twenty years have come and gone, He would have been a free man today
Now that I have a baby boy of my own I swear to never cause him that kind of pain
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

There ain’t no fuel in the outboard motor
And there ain’t no wind in the sail
Nothing but water on the blue horizon
As far as I can tell
I been floating out here all day
Getting farther and farther away
There ain’t no fuel in the outboard motor
And there ain’t no wind in the sail

Chorus
Oh, I’m drifting, I’m drifting
I’m drifting out at sea
Yes, I’m drifting, I’m drifting
There ain’t nowhere I’d rather be

V2
My worries fade in the summer haze
While I watch the red sun set
And the circling gulls are laughing at me
As I smoke my last cigarette
I been floating out here all day
Getting farther and farther away
Oh my worries fade in the summer haze
As I watch that red sun set

Chorus

Bridge
‘Cause there ain’t nothing for me no more, me no more back ashore
There ain’t nothing for me no more
I’ll take my chances on the water

Ebb tide take me out to the ocean
Leave me way out there
And if I never ever see dry land no more
I don’t even care
I been floating out here all day
Getting farther and farther away
Oh, ebb tide take me out to the ocean
Leave me way out there

There ain’t nothing for me no more, me no more back ashore (x3)

Your My
V3 Duet
Lover, friend, confident

Intro

[verse 1] - him
Talking through those crazy stories
Cant believe we made it through
Strange days that begin our journey
Now we say each others line on que

We can stop and smile the ending
Not a word needs to pass
So on the same channel
Like weve been friends our whole life

[Verse 2] - her
When we are walking and talking together
Sharing stories about our life
When we get to a happy moment
We turn and share it in our eyes

Two parts of a single story
Seamlessly connected in this life
No matter the time or placer we discover
Like weve been friends our whole life

[Chorus]
You (him)- You (her)
you (him) are my best friend (harmony)
I hope this life never ends (harmony)

working hard to make a living
pushing and pulling our way through the time
feeling a moment of indecision
Maybe a scare or fright

When we need a shoulder to lean on
Wondering who will help us through the night
Amazing whos hand we find were holding
Like weve been lovers our whole life

Finding time to hold and comfort
Living in a passionate night
We find a match to quell that hunger
find each other holding tight

Caressing and comfort by day
Urgency and aggression at night
Always on the right time line
Like weve been lovers our whole life


[Chorus]
You - You
you are my best friend

You - You
you are my lover

I hope this life never ends

All the ends tie us together
We make up in the dead of night
Sharing our little burden
Like weve been connected our whole life

Laying down our mysteries
Bringing the truth to light
Taking honesty from each other
Like weve been connected our whole life


[Chorus]
You - You
you are my best friend

You - You
you are my lover

I hope this life never ends

I hope this life never ends

It seems that a bad boy was her choice of guys
But livin’ that lifestyle had its share of lies
She tried to make it work
With the latest jerk
A trait that she failed to recognize

Ch1
Get out of her way, she’s leaving, she’s had it with men
But it’s a good bet that she’s going to do it over again

V2
Letting the good ones get away was her common theme
But once she found her bad boy, he wasn’t what he seemed
She couldn’t choose so well
Her relationships were hell
She seemed to be paddling upstream

Ch2
Get out of her way, she’s leaving, she’s had it with men
But it’s a good bet that she’s going to do it over again

Guitar solo

Br
No one can tell her how to choose
Seems she’s attracted by tattoos

But it’s a good bet that she’s going to do it over again
Yeah, it’s a good bet that she’s going to do it over again

Last night when we quarreled, I said some cruel things
Words that hurt real bad I really didn’t mean
Girl I lost my head now I might loose you
Please don’t say goodbye we’ve got too much to loose

Truth is I lied when I said I don’t care
As a matter of fact it was just an act this I swear
Cause in all reality you mean all the world to me
Please don’t say goodbye, Truth Is I Lied

Well it was all a tall tale a little white lie
Something I’ll live with till the day I die
Let me make it up to you I’ll get down on my knee
Boy I’m really sorry cause girl in reality

Truth is I lied when I said I don’t care
As a matter of fact, it was just an act this I swear
Cause in all reality you mean all the world to me
Please don’t say goodbye, Truth Is I Lied

Truth is I lied when I said I don’t care

verse 1
This was our dream, to own a home like this one someday.
See the sunsets and the ocean from our yard.
Now the yard, the house, the future – gone in one day.
To see our dream go up in smoke is just so hard.
The flames came roaring through yesterday morning
On those Santa Ana winds from down below.
And now you’re standing there, with feigned concern and perfect hair,
To ask me how I feel. How could you ever know?

chorus
Take your microphone and go away.
Please leave me alone. I’ve got nothing to say.
My misery is not the news for you to sell today.
Take your microphone and go away.

verse 2
That tornado tore across the Kansas prairie.
We could see it come a dozen miles away.
In my life, I’ve never seen something so scary,
As my whole town, and my home, got blown away.
We took shelter in the cellar with the neighbors.
Kids were crying, and my mom passed out from fright.
You ask if we will build again, as your camera pans the scene,
When we don’t know even where we’ll sleep tonight.

chorus

In a flash, our family home was crushed to rubble,
When the enemy shot rockets through the dark.
We’re peaceful people, never wanted any trouble.
Now as refugees, we’ll need to make a whole new start.

Yes, my child was in that classroom on that nightmare of a day.

Verse 1
A childhood so carefree
Shinning bits of you and me
Times that are gone
Still live on
Racing through my memory
Even this isn’t free

Verse 2
Looking to the past
Life went by so fast
Gone is my youth
And so are you
You left and went your way
Now I know you couldn’t stay

Bridge
Where did you go
Is it far away
Will you come back
Some day

Verse 3
Sometimes in the night
I hear you call my name
It’s a dream
It’s just not the same
Survival has it’s cost
Reminding me of what I’ve lost

My love, I wish you had a better alibi
As I sit and listen to you lie
I wonder if the truth would make me cry
And yet. if I am truly honest with myself
I had no right to put you on the shelf
I guess you can’t buy what you can’t sell

PRE1:
Right now, there’s no act from me
What you’ll get is just honesty

CH1:
Stripped down just the naked truth
Without a care, without excuse
No need for your disguise
Nothing left to analyze
And as the band plays a happy song
I have to wonder if it’s wrong
To pretend as life goes on
and carry on,,,,,carry on

My love, there’s no need for you to be afraid
all the evidence has long been weighed
This seems to be the bed that we have made
And yet, my mental state is anything but clear
As we embrace and I draw you near
I see you’re smiling as you shed a tear

PRE2:
Right now, there’s no act from me
All you’ll get, is what you see

CH2:
Stripped down just the naked truth
Without a care, without excuse
No need for your disguise
The truth is right here in our eyes
And as the band plays a happy song
I have to wonder if it’s wrong
That we pretend as life goes on
and carry on, carry on, just carry on……carry on

CH3:
Stripped down just the naked truth
Without a care without excuse
Nothing left for us to hide
I’m still standing by your side

And as the band plays a happy song
I have to hope before too long
Our love will again be strong
If we just carry on, just carry on, carry on……just carry on

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

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”
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

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.

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

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 ya 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.


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

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 ya 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

Blues Harp Solo:

Chorus:
Oh Give me
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 ya 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.
