The preacher man says it's the end of time And the Mississippi River, she's a going dry The interest is up and the stock markets down And you only get mugged if you go downtown I live back in the woods, you see My woman and the kids and the dogs and me I got a shotgun and a rifle and a four wheel drive And a countryboy can survive, country folks can survive I can plow a field all day long, I c...
I was getting kinda tired of her endless chatter Nothing I could say ever seemed to matter So I took a little drive just to clear my head I saw a flashing neon, up ahead, it looked like a place To find some satisfaction With a little less talk and a lot more action I paid the man at the door and pushed my way to the bar Shouted for a drink over a screaming guitar A drunk on a stool tried to me...
Tonight down here in the valley I'm lonesome and oh how I feel As I sit here alone in my cabin I can see your mansion on the hill Do you recall when we parted The story to me you revealed You said you couldn't live without loving In your loveless mansion on the hill I've waited all through the years, love To give you a heart true and real 'Cause I know you're living in sorrow In your loveless ...

So September follows August I don't mind so three and four and five come after two Will anything mean anything? Do I care what tomorrow brings? I only wonder what comes after you After you when someone smiles at me I'll wonder what's the price after you I'll be suspicious of anything that's nice I don't know that I'll get over you but if I ever do I'll never love this much again, not after you...
No one to talk with, all by myself No one to walk with, but I'm happy on the shelf Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you Now I know for certain, you're the one I love I'm through with flirtin', just you I'm dreamin' of Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you Like Jack Horner in the corner Don't go no where, why do I care?

The darkness of my world was all cleared away The flowers are blooming, it's a beautiful day There's a girl with a heart as big as the sky She's sunshine and I know why All for the love of sunshine All for the love of sunshine The Lord smiled down on this life of mine And sent me the love of sunshine Though sunshine can always make my days seem bright Sunshine can warm up a cold, cold night I ...

I looked over at my pillow but your face wasn't there And I don't smell the perfume you used to wear And I don't see your blouse or jeans or your pretty white cotton gown And I've looked all over Hell but Heaven can't be found I looked on the bedside table but your jewelry was all gone And I just wish you'd call every time I look at the phone I looked in our dressing mirror and I saw myself br...

Just around the corner there's heartaches down the street that losers use If you can wade in through the teardrops You'll find me at the Home of the Blues I walk and cry while my heartbeat keeps time with the drag of my shoes The sun never shines through this window of mine Oh it's dark in the Home of the Blues But the place is filled with sweetest mem'ries mem'ries so sweet that I cry Dreams ...
Six hours behind, the changes of time Ten thousand miles from home I'm so far away, so long it seems like This road is all I know When I was young I dreamed of adventure And places I'd never seen before But when I close my eyes as I sleep at night All I dream of now is home So long that I've been gone If there's one thing I know Is that there's no place like home Far away and changes everyday ...

If today the sun should set on all my hopes and cares There is one who's smiling face the Gods would see Cause she'll walk along beside me up to golden stairs Oh they'll never never take her love from me What a fool I was to go and break the trust she gave And to see her love turn into sympathy It's the one regret I'll carry with me to my grave Oh they'll never never take her love from me [ st...

The waters of a river flow down stream sometimes stand still And it makes its own way through this world and the road is all down hill But no man ever knows what his life will bring But he'll get where he's goin' if he finds a time to sing A time to sing a song of his love a time to sing of what he's dreamin' of Maybe over the next hill the grass is green But rocky road gets smoother if he fin...

Too many parties and too many pals Will break your heart someday Too many boyfriends and sociable sals Will drive your sweetheart away Gentlemen of the jury the judge's speech began The scene was a crowded courtroom and the judge a sterned old man This prisoner here before you is a social enemy A lady of the evening and you know the penalty Her eyes reflect the nightlife, her cheeks they're re...
Love without devotion is just loneliness in motion just the way to pass away some time A fire without an ember leaves nothing to remember And it sure won't burn her mem'ry from my mind Cause it's much too soon for me to think of love again For my heart's still living in another time I'm still walking through the pieces of a world that's fallin' in And it's much too soon to think of love again ...

The worst that I've ever been hurt in my life The first time I ever have wanted to die Was the night when you told me You loved someone else And you asked me if I could forget When I stop dreaming That's when I'll stop loving you You may teach the flowers to bloom in the snow You may take a pebble and teach it to grow You may teach all the raindrops to return to the clouds But you can't teach ...
