I Asked the Lord Hes Only a Prayer Away

(Words & music by Lange – Duncan)
I thank the Lord for everything
When things are going my way
He said to me I will comfort thee
And drive your cares away
He promised me I will walk thee
And drive your cares away
I did not ask for riches
He gave me wealth untold
The moon, the stars, the sun the sky
(Are there for you) to behold
I thank the lord for everything
And I count my blessings each day
He came to me when I needed Him
I only have to pray
And He’ll come to you if you ask Him to
He’s only a prayer away

I Believe
(Erwin Drake / Irvin Graham / Jimmy Shirl / Al Stillman)

A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows

To show the way

Can still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears ev’ry word

Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

I Believe In The Man In The Sky
(Richard Howard)

(The steps that lead to any church
Form a stairway to a star
They’re part of God and should be trod
More often than they are)

I believe with His help I’ll get by
My footsteps may falter
My eyes may grow dim
But He’s my Gibralter
I’m trusting in Him
* Though a sparrow is all I may be
On me He will still keep an eye
Yes I’m singing His praise
Till the end of my days
I believe in the man in the sky
(Though a) sparrow (is all I may be) sparrow am I
(On me He will still keep an eye) Keep an eye
Yes I’m singing His praise
Till the end of my days
I believe in the man in the sky

I Can See Clearly Now
(Johnny Nash)

I can see clearly now the rain has gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s going to be a bright, bright sunshiny day
I think I can make it now the pain has gone
And all of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day
Look all around there’s nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead nothing but blue skies
I think I can make it now the pain has gone
And all of the bad feelings have disappeared
I can see clearly now the rain has gone
It’s gonna be a bright, bright
Sunshiny day

I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still In Love With You)
(Hank Williams)

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart left your feet (?????)
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you
Somebody else stood by your side
And he looked so satisfied
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you
A mem’ry from the past came slowly stealin’
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you
Oh heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you
_____________________________________________________________
I Can’t Stop Loving You
(Don Gibson)

* I can’t stop loving you
Well I made up, made up my mind
To live in memory of such a long, lonely time
I can’t stop wanting you
Well its useless, useless to say
So I’ll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday
Those happy hours
That we once knew
They’re so long ago
They still make, make be blue
They say that time
Heals a broken heart
But time has stood still
Since we’ve been apart
* Repeat
Yesterday

I Don’t Wanna Be Tied
(Giant / Baum / Kaye)

I want my share of love, it might as well be known
But I ain’t thinking of one girl to love alone
That ain’t the way it’s gonna be, I’m on my own and I am free
And I’ve been satisfied, (satisfied) so I don’t wanna be tied
(don’t wanna be tied)
Somebody’s loving arms can sure be sweet I’ve found
But I want no-one’s arms to ever hold me down
Once I get caught inside a net I’m gonna run I bet
I’m gonna run and hide (run and hide), ’cause I don’t wanna be tied
(don’t wanna be tied)
I’ve seen others who were matched, they thought that love could stay
Once they cared and got attached, it seems that love just slipped away
Don’t want no claims on me (don’t wanna be tied),
don’t want no chains that bind (don’t wanna be tied)
As anyone could see (don’t wanna be tied)
I say what’s on my mind (don’t wanna be tied)
Well there ain’t nothing I conceal, I’m gonna play the field
The field of love is wide (field of love is wide),
So I don’t wanna be tied (don’t wanna be tied)
The field of love is wide (field of love is wide),
And I don’t wanna be tied (don’t wanna be tied)
The field of love is wide (field of love is wide),
So I don’t wanna be tied (don’t wanna be tied)
I said I don’t wanta,I don’t don’t don’t don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be tied

I don’t trust the way you thrill me when I touch you
* I was happy free and easy, I could go around
And do the things that please me
I don’t want to get tied down with a girl like you

Will you kiss away my cares and woe
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know

I Heard The Bells On Christmas

(Elvis Presley)

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the’ unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
And in despair I bowed my head
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.”
With peace on earth, good will to men.”
Merry Christmas

I Just Can’t Help Believin’
(Mann / Weil)

I just can’t help believin’
When she smiles up soft and gentle
With a trace of misty morning
And a promise of tomorrow in her eyes
I just can’t help believin’
When she’s lying close beside me
And my heart beats with the rhythm of her sighs
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day
* Oh I just can’t help believin’
When she slips her hand in my hand
And it feels so small and helpless
That my fingers fold around it like a glove
I just can’t help believin’
When she’s whisperin’ her magic
And her tears are shinin’ honey sweet with love
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day
For more than just a day
** (Oh I just can’t help believin’)
(Oh I just can’t help believin’)
(Oh I just can’t help believin’)

When she smiles her whisperin’ magic
And her tears are shinin’ honey sweet with love
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day

* Oh, I love only one girl, the one I’ve got my arms around

You’re always there to lend a helping hand, dear

I Met Her Today
(Robertson / Blair)

I told you that some day
If you kept on being untrue
Somebody else would come along
And release me from you
You’ll be glad to know now
Your fickle heart
Can have its own way
For it finally happened
I met her today
I used to think I just couldn’t live
A day without you
In spite of the thousand doubts and tears
That you put me through
All at once I don’t care as much for you
I’m sorry to say
For now there’s another
I met her today
How I treasured each smile, each kiss
You gave to me now and then
Well, you needn’t be kind to me now
Oh no, not ever again
Just when the last bit of pride in me was gone
Someone heard me pray
And sent me my angel
I met her today
I met her today

I Miss You
(Don H. Sumner)

Still I recall all the good times together
The love we shared, the fun and the laughter
How I wish you could feel what my heart says tonight dear
I miss you and I wish you were here
Dreams that I had they lay broken in sorrow
The plans I made my hopes for tomorrow
If I could I would tell you I’m lonesome tonight dear
Oh I miss you and I wish you were here
All through the night I will see memories passing
The way you looked the sound of your laughing
How I long for the touch of your hand holding mine dear
Oh I miss you and I wish you were here
Lord, I miss you and I wish you were here

I Need Somebody To Lean On
(Pomus / Shuman)

I need somebody to lean on
I need somebody to tell my troubles to
No use denying, I’m close to crying
But what good, tell me what good would my crying do
I need somebody to help me
Help me forget all those worries on my mind
And when I’m lonely, if someone would only
Wanna be sweet and kind
I need somebody, won’t that somebody
Please, please listen to my plea
Need that somebody, won’t that somebody
Come running to me?
I need somebody to lean on
I’m tired of being unhappy and so blue
If she came I would hold her ’cause I need that shoulder
To lean on, yes I really do
I need somebody, and maybe that somebody is you
Mmmmmmm

I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell
(Wise – Wiseman)

I look at you and wham, I’m head over heels
I guess that love is a banana peel
I feel so bad and yet I’m feeling so well
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell
One crazy kiss and, bam, I head for the skies
I guess that love is like a cake of ice
You skate along but then you never can tell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell
* I never thought I’d get kicked by your sweet talkin’ lies
You got a bag of tricks
And when you got busy I got dazzled and dizzy
I fell like a ton of bricks
My knees are weak, my head is spinning round
I guess that love has turned me upside down
Thought I’d get hurt, but gee, it’s turning out swell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell
*Repeat
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

I think I’m gonna like it here
( Don Robertson, Hal Blair )

No-one’s in a hurry
No-one seems to worry
Why they’re all so happy is very clear
Every day siesta, ev’ry night fiesta
I think I’m gonna like it here
All this lovely scenery
There’s more to it than green’ry
You know a chance for romance is always near
Mission bells are ringing, ev’rybody’s singing
I think I’m gonna like it hear
The sound of laughter from ev’ry doorway
Sweet music floating across the square
It seems to say things are going your way
Your troubles like bubbles will soon disappear in the air
* Down to my last peso, but I’m not afraid to say so
I feel just like a brave, Spanish cavalier
I don’t care where we go, so lead on “mi amigo”
I think I’m gonna like it here
(Las voces cantan sus melodias) melodias
Que son alegre y tan felices
(Todo sera como to lo quierras) to lo quierras

…your troubles like bubbles will soon disappear in the air
* Repeat
I think I’m gonna like it here
…I think I’m gonna like it here…

(Leiber / Stoller)

There’s no joy in my heart, only sorrow
And I’m sad as a man can be
I sit alone in the darkness of my lonely room
And this room is a prison to me
* I look out my window and what do I see
I see a bird way up in a tree
I want to be free (Oh yes) free (Oh yes)
Free – – ee
I want to be free, like a bird in the tree
Oh what good are my eyes, they can’t see you
And my arms, they can’t hold you so tight
I have two lips that are yearning
But they’re no good to me
‘Cause I know I can’t kiss you tonight
* Repeat
I want to be free, like the bird in a tree
I want to be free like the bird in the tree

I Want You With Me
(Harris)

When I was little, my mama said to me
“Some day you’ll find a love, son, to last eternally”
I want you with me everywhere I go
Oh please don’t leave me baby, I love you so
I can be the ruler of this whole wide world
If you will only say that you’ll be my girl
I want you with me in everything I do
Well you know I need you baby, I’m in love with you
There is no mountain that I can’t climb
You find the mountain, child, and I’ll find the time
I want you with me, with me night and day
Well, you can make me happy, baby don’t you go away
I’d swim an ocean with a raging foam
If I know that you’ll be there when I come back home
I want you with me, you know I love you so
I want you with me baby, I’ll never ever let you go
Yeh! I want you with me I want you with me
Well I want you with me baby, I’ll never let you go

I Want You, I Need You, I Love You
(Mysels – Kosloff)

Hold me close, hold me tight
Make me thrill with delight
Let me know where I stand from the start
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart
Ev’rytime that you’re near
All my cares disappear
Darling you’re all that I’m living for
I want you, I need you, I love you
More and more
* I thought I could live without romance
Until you came to me
But now I know that I will go on
Loving you eternally
Won’t you please be my own?
Never leave me alone
‘Cause I die ev’ry time we’re apart
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart
Well
* Repeat

I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago
(Adapted By Elvis Presley)

I saw old pharaoh’s daughter bring Moses from the water
I’ll lick the guy that says it isn’t so
* I was born about ten thousand years ago
There ain’t nothin’ in this world that I don’t know
I saved king David’s life and he offered me a wife
I said now you’re talking business have a chair
** Yeah, I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain’t nothing in this world that I don’t know
Saw Peter, Paul and Moses playing ring around the roses
I’ll lick the guy that says it isn’t so
*** I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain’t nothing in this world that I don’t know
I saw old pharaoh’s daughter bring Moses from the water
I’ll lick the guy that says it isn’t so
**** I was there when old Noah built the ark
And I crawled in the window after dark
I saw Jonah eat the whale and dance with the lion’s tale
And I crossed over Canaan on a log
*** Repeat
** Repeat
**** Repeat
* Repeat
** Repeat

I Was The One
(Schroeder / De Metrius / Blair / Peppers)

I was the one who taught her to kiss
The way that she kisses you now
And you know the way she touches your cheek
Well, I taught her how
I was the one who taught her to cry
When she wants you under her spell
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind
I taught her so well
And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried
And it was all for me
I – I’ll never know who taught her to lie
And now that it’s over and done
And who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one
* Repeat

I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water
(Joe Babcock)

I was born in Macon Georgia
They kept my daddy over in Macon jail
He told me if you keep your hands clean
You won’t hear them bloodhounds on your trail
Well I fell in with bad companions
Robbed a man, oh up in Tennessee
They caught me way up in Nashville
They locked me up and threw away the key
What’d you do son
* I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, oh but they didn’t come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Well I asked the judge now when’s my time up
He said son, oh you know we won’t forget
If you try just to keep your hands clean
We might just make a good man of you yet
Oh I couldn’t wait to get my time up
I broke out, broke out of Nashville jail
I just crossed the state-line of Georgia
Well I can hear them bloodhounds on my trail
What’d you do son
** I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, oh but they didn’t come clean
Tried to do, (tried to do) like my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream
** Repeat
* Repeat
* Repeat
Yeh
I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, oh but they didn’t come clean
Tried to do, (tried to do) like my daddy told me

I Will Be Home Again
(Lou Singer – Benny Benjamin)

I will be home again
Don’t worry dear
I’ll be home again
So won’t you dry the tear
The promise in your eyes
Will see me through
There’ll be brighter skies
When I come back to you
* A-a-ah sweetheart
The love you’re giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth the living
Although we are apart
I will be home again
We’ll start anew
Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do
* Repeat

I Will Be True
(Ivory Joe Hunter)

I will be true
No matter what they may say
I will be true
Although you’re far far away
Each night I pray
All day I’ll say silent prayers
That when I open my door
I’ll find you there
Somehow I feel
That someday we’ll meet again
Don’t ask me how
It’s something I can’t explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I’ll do
I will be true
Oh oh mmmmmmm
That someday we’ll meet again
Don’t ask me how
It’s something I can’t explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I’ll do
I will be true

I Write The Songs
(Bruce Johnston)

(Sang by Elvis in concert in 1976 & 1977)
(Lyrics contributed by Rien van Houten)

I’ve been alive forever,
And I wrote the very first song.
I put the words and the melodies together,
I am music and I write the songs.
* I write the songs that make the whole world sing.
I write the songs of love and special things.
I write the songs that make the young girls cry.
I write the songs, I write the songs.
My home lies deep within you,
And I’ve got my own place in your soul.
Now, when I look out through your eyes,
I’m young again, even though I’m very old.
* Repeat
Oh my music makes you dance
and gives your spiri t to take a chance,
and I wrote some rock ‘n’ roll so you can move.
Music fills your heart,
well, that’s a real fine place to start.
It’s from me it’s for you,
it’s from you, it’s from me,
it’s a world wide symphony.
* Repeat

I, John
(Johnson / Mcfadden / Brooks)

Oh well
* I John he saw a mighty number
(A-movin’) way up in the middle of the air
Oh well, I John saw a mighty number
(A-movin’) way in the middle of the air
God almighty movin’
* Repeat
Well, there were three gates in the east
(And there were) three gates in the west (let me tell you ’bout)
Three gates in the north (Hallelujah! there were)
Three gates in the south
(And that makes) twelve gates to the city
Four square wide Hallelujah!
God almighty movin’
* Repeat
Well, old John he declared that he saw a man
He had twelve bright stars in-a his right hand
Well, his eyes flashed fire like a burnin’ sun
Old John got scared and he wanted to run
Well, he wanted to run but his feet wouldn’t go
‘Cause he felt the Gospel cuttin’ like a two-edged sword
And he heard a voice he said: “John, you take a look
And read what you see, and you write it in a book”
He saw twelve angels in the east
(And there were) twelve angels in the west
(Hallelujah brother!) Twelve angels in the north
Twelve angels in the south
(That’s a total of) forty-eight angels to the city
Four square wide Hallelujah!
God almighty movin’
* Repeat

If Every Day Was Like Christmas
(Red West)

I hear the bells saying Christmas is here
They ring out to tell the world
That this is the season of cheer
I hear a choir singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart, I’m at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air
* Oh why can’t ev’ry day be like Christmas?
Why can’t that feeling go on endlessly?
For if every day could be just like Christmas
What a wonderful world this would be
I hear a child telling Santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me than anything
* Repeat

If I Can Dream
(W. Earl Brown)

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true
Oh why
There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won’t the sun appear
We’re lost in a cloud with too much rain
We’re trapped in a world
That’s troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly
Deep in my heart there’s a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer’s, the answer’s gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there’s a beckoning candle, yeh
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream come true, oh yeh
Right now
Let it come true right now, oh yeh

If I Get Home On Christmas Day
(Macaulay)

If I get home on Christmas Day
I won’t need soft words to say
I miss you and I can stay awhile
You’ll see it in my eyes and when I smile
If I get home before midnight
While you’re still sleeping tight
I’ll take you in my arms and there you’ll stay
If I get home on Christmas Day
Writing letters ev’ry day never really seem to say
The way I feel deep in this heart of mine
Though I’m half a world away, if we’re patient and we pray
I know I’ll get my chance with you this time
If I get home on Christmas Day
I won’t need soft words to say
I miss you and I will stay awhile
You’ll see it in my eyes and when I smile
If I get home before midnight
And you’re still sleeping tight
I’ll take you in my arms and there you’ll stay
If I get home on Christmas Day
Ahhhh…… Ohhhhhh………
I’ll take you in my arms and there you’ll stay
If I get home on Christmas Day

If I Loved You

(words & music by Rodgers/Hammerstein)

If I loved you
Words wouldn’t come in an easy way
Round in circles I’d go
Only to tell you
But afraid and shy
I let my golden chances pass me by
Soon you’ll leave me
Ought (?) you would go in a misty day
Never, never let you know
I love you eternally
_____________________________________________________________
If I Were You
(Nelson)

The sandman comes to my house late each night
But it’s way in the morning before he turns out my light
It’s times like this my darling I can see
If I were you I’d know that I love me
The great snowman I’ve been called by all
But it looks like this time I’m gonna fall
It’s times like this my darling I can see
Oooh If I were you I’d know that I love me
Wind and rain and storm closin’ in on me
I’ve walked the streets alone with my self sympathy
Can you hear me saying hopefully?
Oooh yeah, if I were you I’d know that I love me
Wind and rain and storm closin’ in on me
I’ve walked the streets alone with my self sympathy
Can you hear me saying hopefully?
If I were you I’d know that I love me
Oooh If I were you I’d know that I love me
If I were you I’d know that I love me

If I’m A Fool (For Loving You)
(Stan Kesler)

If I’m a fool for loving you then that’s just what I want to be
They’re saying I am just your clown and any fool could see
That you’re just having fun and you’re not in love with me
The things they’re saying may be true, but there’s something they can’t see
If I’m a fool for loving you then that’s just what I want to be
* If I’m a dreamer, let me dream. If I’m your clown I’ll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem, please don’t ever let me know
If I am blind it’s because I just don’t want to see
If I’m a fool for loving you then that’s just what I want to be
* Repeat
If I’m a fool for loving you then that’s just what I want to be

If That Isn’t Love
(Dottie Rambo)

He left the spleandour of heaven
Knowing His destiny
Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
There to lay down His life for me
* And if that isn’t love
Then the ocean is dry
There’s no stars in the sky
And the little sparrows can’t fl….y
Yeh if that isn’t love
Then heaven’s a myth
There’s no feeling like this
If that isn’t love (It’s got to be love)
Even in death He remembered
The thief hangin’ by His side
Then He spoke of love and compassion
And He took him to paradise
* Repeat
It’s got to be love

If The Lord Wasn’t Walking By My Side
(Henry Slaughter)

I don’t know just what I’d do
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side
When I was driftin’ (when I was drifting on the sea of a despair)
and I was wandering (I was wandering if Jehova’s up there)
But Jesus found me,(Jesus found me in my sinful life)
he heard me praying (he heard me praying on my knees at night)
And now I’m singing (Now I’m singing this happy song)
because I’m happy (because I’m happy as I go along)
And I don’t know (I don’t know) just what I’d do
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side
What would I do? (What would I do when a tear fills my eyes?)
what would I do? (What would I do when it’s my time to die?)
Well I’d be lonely, discouraged
Burdened all the way
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side every day
* I’d be so friendless (I’d be friendless all alone and blue)
and I’d be helpless (I’d be helpless, wouldn’t know what to do)
And I don’t know (I don’t know) just what I’d do
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side
(What would I do) What would I do if the tears fill my eyes
(What would I do) What would I do if I smile and die
(I’d be lonely, discouraged, burdened on the way)
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side every day
I’d be so friendless, (I’d be friendless all alone and blue)
I’d be so helpless (I’d be helpless, wouldn’t know what to do)
And I don’t know (I don’t know) just what I’d do
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side every day
If the Lord (wasn’t walking) wasn’t walking by my side
(wasn’t walking by my side)

If We Never Meet Again
(Albert E. Brumley)

Soon we’ll come to the end of life’s journey
And perhaps never meet anymore
Till we gather in heaven’s bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore
If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There’s another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the side of the river of life
Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separations come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

If You Don’t Come Back
(Mark James)

(Woke up early in the morning)
(What did the poor boy find)
Well the car was gone and you were gone
And I almost lost my mind.
If you don’t come back (If you don’t come back)
Yeh! if you don’t come back today (If you don’t come back today)
You can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away
(He threw himself off a gas stone wall)
(He tore his clothes out the door)
I run on the street in my stockinged feet
Yelling police I’ve been robbed
If you don’t come back (If you don’t come back)
Mmm if you don’t come back again (If you don’t come back today)
Well you can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away
Mrs Brown’s been talking about me
To the people across the street
She said I cooked that boy a bucket of stew ?
but the bear came just for me ?
If you don’t come back (If you don’t come back)
Yeh! If you don’t come back again (If you don’t come back today)
You can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away
Mmm, mmm, take it, mmm

If You Love Me (Let Me Know)
(J. Rostill)

You came when I was happy in your sunshine
I grew to love you more each passing day
Before too long I built my world around you
Yeh and I prayed you’d loved enough of me to stay
* If you love me let me know
If you don’t let me go
I can’t take another minute another day without you with me
If you love me let it be
If you don’t set me free
Take the chains away that keep me lovin’ you
The arms that open wide to hold me closer
The hands that run their fingers through my hair
The smile that says hello it’s good to see you
Any time I turn around and find you there
It’s this and so much more that makes me love you
What else can I do to make you see?
Oh Lord you know you have whatever’s mine to give you
Yeh but a love affair for one can never be
* Repeat
Take the chains away that keep me lovin’ you

If You Talk In Your Sleep
(Red West / Johnny Christopher)

I know you’re a lonely woman and I love you
But someone else is waiting and he owns you
If he should ever wake up, make sure your story is fake love
If you talk in your sleep don’t mention my name
And if you walk in your sleep forget where you came
Walking ev’ry night here in the shadow
So afraid that sometime he may follow
There’s always a chance he’ll find us
So I don’t need to remind you
If you talk in your sleep don’t mention my name
If you walk in your sleep forget where you came
Love is so much sweeter when it’s borrowed
I’ll feel a little easier tomorrow
Don’t give our secret away, be careful what you say
If you talk in your sleep don’t mention my name
If you walk in your sleep forget where you came
Forget where you came, now
Forget where you came
Don’t mention my name
Don’t mention my name
Forget where you came

If You Think I Don’t Need You
(West / Cooper)

(Recorded for the film “Viva Las Vegas”)

If you think I don’t need you
Then take a look at my eyes
Maybe these ain’t raindrops
Falling out of the sky
Since you’ve been gone
I’ve been so alone
If you think I don’t need you
Then baby you’re wrong
If you think I don’t love you
What could I do to prove to you baby
My love is true
I sing the same old song
Since you’ve been gone
If you think I don’t love you
Then baby you’re wrong
My life ain’t been the same since you left me
I ain’t had a wink of sleep in seven days
I don’t know what to do I’m going crazy
I just walk the floor at night and call your name
* If you think I don’t do right
I’ll change my ways
I’ll do like you want me to, I’ll be your slave
Since you’ve been gone
I’ve been so alone
If you think I don’t need you
Well baby you’re wrong
* Repeat
Well baby you’re wrong
Well baby you’re wrong

I’ll Be Back
(Wayne / Weisman)

(Recorded for the film “Spinout”)

Alright
Well I’ll be back, yeh! I’ll be back
Like a homesick train on a one-way track
I gotta travel and hit the gravel
But I’ll be back, (I’ll be back) Yeh! I’ll be back
Well I’ll return, I shall return
Don’t cool those lips, I wanna see ’em burn
‘Cos I’ll be missin’ your kinda kissin’
But I’ll be back, (But I’ll be back), Yeh, I’ll be back (I’ll be back)
* Hey! Can’t nobody tell me stay or go, oh no
And no-one tells the four winds where to blow-oh-oh no
I’ll be back, I’m comin’ back
Don’t throw away that welcome mat
Your door I’m hopin’ will still be open a teeny weeny crack
To your shack
So keep that love light burnin’, ’cause I’ll be back (I’ll be back)
Yeh, I’ll be back
* Repeat
Yeh, I’ll be back (Yeh, I’ll be back) All right!

That a man can do or see
But if I could only borrow
One dream from yesterday

And oh too many tears that fell
My soul filled with yearning
If I had any sense at all
I’d just be on my way
I’d be on that train tomorrow
I’ll be home on Christmas Day
Every time I think about her
All the love I left behind
Memories still linger

I’ve been in love so many times
I thought I knew the score
Now you’ve treated me so wrong
I can’t take any more
And it looks like I’m never gonna fall in love again
Fall in love, I’m never gonna fall in love
I mean it, I mean it, fall in love again

And it looks like I’m never gonna fall in love again
That’s what I’m sayin’ Fall in love, No, I’m never gonna fall in love
Please don’t make me fall in love again

I’ll Never Know

(Words & music by Karger / Wayne / Weisman)

How many stars are in the sky, I’ll never know
What fire lights a firefly, I’ll never know
What happens to this heart of mine each time you hold my hand
Sometimes the things we love the most
We never understand
I never thought these eyes would see an angel’s glow
What miracle brought you to me, I’ll never know
What happens to this heart of mine each time you hold my hand
Sometimes the things we love the most
We never understand
I never thought these eyes would see an angel’s glow
What miracle brought you to me, I’ll never know
What miracle brought you to me, I’ll never know

I’ll Never Let You Go Little Darlin

(words & music by J. Wakely)
I’ll never let you go, little darlin’.
I’m so sorry ’cause I made you cry.
I’ll never let you go, ’cause I love you.
So please don’t ever say good-bye.
The stars would tumble down beside me,
The moon would hang its head and cry.
My arms would never hold another baby doll
If we should ever say good-bye.
Well, I’ll never let you go,
Because I love you, pretty baby.
I’m so sorry ’cause I made you cry.
I made you cry.
Yeah, I’ll never let you go,
‘Cause I love you, little baby.
So please don’t ever say good-bye.

I’ll Never Stand in Your Way

(words & music by Heath – Rose)

If you found someone new who means more than me to you.
I’d never stand in your way
If you feel we must part, don’t let pity rule your heart
I’ll never stand in your way
I love you much too much to ever lose you
But what is to be will be and I’ll obey
I’ll be blue when you go but I’ll never let it show.
I’d never stand in your way

I’d never stand in your way

I’ll Remember You

(words & music by Lee)

I’ll remember you
Long after this endless summer is gone
I’ll be lonely oh so lonely
Living only to remember you
I’ll remember you
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter, mornings after
Ever after, Ooooh, I’ll remember you
To your arms someday I’ll return to stay
Till then…
I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Ooooh, you’ll remember too
I’ll remember you.

I’ll Take Love

(Words & music by Fuller / Barkon)

Some people think that pot of gold
Is all they ever want to hold
But there’s a treasure, I think more of
Measure for measure .. I’ll take love
Some people think that their success

But there’s a pleasure, I think more of

Ounce for ounce love is all that really counts
So let them have their wealth and fame
Eat caviar and drink champagne
You’re all the treasure I’m dreaming of

I’ll Take You Home Again Kathleen

(words & music by Westendorf)

I’ll take you home again Kathleen
Across the ocean wild and wide
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my bonny bride
The roses all have left your cheek
I watch them fade away and die
Your voice is soft when ere you speak
And tears bedim your lovely eyes
Oh, I will take you home Kathleen
To where your heart shall feel no pain
And when the fields are soft and green
I will take you to your home Kathleen

Im A Roustabout

Build it up, knock it down
Hold it square, roll it around
Throw it in the air, stick it in the ground
But it’s too bad, I can’t get mad
Cause I’m a roustabout
Tie it loose, make it tight
If it’s wrong, do it right
Makes me kinda feel like I wanna fight
But it’s too bad, I can’t get mad
Cause I’m a roustabout
Orders all day and half the night, from the boss
That guys cousin don’t wanna see one minute lost
Stack it up, in the rig
Better still, bring it here
Wanna take it out stick it in his ear
But it’s too bad, I can’t get mad
Cause I’m a roustabout
A handyman is all I am around this place
Every time I turn around he’s right up in my face
Bring it in, drag it out
When I’m slow, boy he shouts
Gettin aweful tired runnin’ in and out
But it’s too bad, I can’t get mad
Cause I’m a roustabout

I’m All Shook Up

A well I bless my soul
What’s wrong with me?
I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I’m actin’ WIRED* as a bug
I’m in love
I’m all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!
My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I’m in love
I’m all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!
Please don’t ask me what’s on my mind
I’m a little mixed up, but I’m feelin’ fine
When I’m near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!
She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her LIPS* are like a volcano that’s hot
I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup
I’m in love
I’m all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!
My tongue gets tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There’s only one cure for this BODY* of mine
That’s to have the girl that I love so fine!

I’m Beginning to Forget You

(Words & music by W. Phelps)

I’m beginning to forget you
That old heartache is gone
I’m beginning to sleep at night
No more crying ’till dawn
I can hear your name mentioned
And it brings no misery
I’m beginnin to forget you
Like you forgot me
I’m beginning to smile again
After crying for so long
I can hear the tune we loved so well
And it’s just another song
I’m so happy that it’s over
I’m so thankful to be free
I’m beginnin to forget you
Like you forgot me

I’m Coming Home

(words & music by Rich)

Well it’s so very hard to have
To leave the one you love
And you get more lonely
With each passing day
It’s so lonely just sitting
And dreaming of
That girl thousand miles away
Yes, it’s still lonely having
Just her picture here with me
And I know I just can’t stand it anymore
I’m gonna leave right now
and go back where I ought to be
Goin’ home to the girl that I adore
Well it’s so very hard to have
To leave the one you love
And you get more lonely
With each passing day
It’s so lonely just sitting
And dreaming of
That girl thousand miles away
Well, every time I hear
her sweet voice on the telephone
Then I know I just can’t stand it another day
I’m gonna call right back
And tell her that I’m coming home and stay
Call her back and say I’m comin’ home and stay
Call her back and say I’m comin’ home and stay

Still could not say
How much I need you so in every way

To always come true, dear
In your kind lovin’ way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely

I’m Falling in Love Tonight

(Word and music by Don Robertson)

I’m falling in love, tonight
Somehow, I know
The beautiful world tonight
Is sharing, it’s glow
When love let me down before
I said I was through
But I’m falling in love tonight
With you
’till you walked by
I laughed and played the game
One last kiss, then goodbye
And out went the flame
But somehow, you’ve changed me dear
This time, it’s true
I’m falling in love tonight
With you

La la la la la la la la la la la la la

Where will I go, who will I have to lie beside me
To ease this emptiness inside me

Tried so hard each time, each time I just can’t make it
Feelin’ fast vibrations and I just can’t take it
Living from day to day, chasing the dream

I’m Left You’re Right She’s Gone My Babys gone

(words & music by S. Kesler – W. Taylor)

Well, you’re right, I’m left, she’s gone.
You’re right, and I’m left all alone.
Well, you tried to tell me so,
But how was I to know
That she was not the one for me?
You told me all along,
You’re right, our love was so wrong.
But now I changed my mind,
Because she broke the ties that bind,
And I know that she never cared for me.
Well, I thought I knew just what she’d do,
I guess I’m not so smart.
Oh, you tried to tell me along she’d only break my heart.
I’m left, you’re right, she’s gone.
You’re right, and I’m left all alone.
Well, she’s gone I know not where,
But now I just don’t care.
For now I’m falling for you.
If you’ll forgive me now,
I’ll make it up somehow.
So happy we will be,
In a home just for three,
And I’ll soon forget her,
Now I know.
Well, I thought I knew just what she’d do,
I guess I’m not so smart.
You tried to tell me all along,
She’d only break my heart.
Well, you’re right, I’m left, she’s gone.
You’re right, and I’m left all alone.
Well, she’s gone, I know not where,
But now I just don’t care,
For now I’ve fallen for you.

I’m Movin On

(Words & music by H. Snow)

That big eight-wheeler runnin’ down the track
Means your true lovin’ daddy ain’t acomin’ back
‘Cause he’s movin on, he’s rollin on
You were flyin to high for my little ol’ sky
So I’m movin’ on
But some day baby when you’ve had you play
Your gonna want your daddy but your daddy will say
Keep movin’ on, keep rollin’ on
You were flyin to high for my little ol’ sky
So I’m movin’ on. Move on baby.
Mr. Fireman won’t you please listen to me
‘Cause I gotta pretty momma in Tennessee
Keep rollin on, keep movin’ on,
Please listen to me let this rattler free
Move on ol’ son, move on
Well I told you baby from time to time
But you just wouldn’t listen or pay me no mind
And now I’m movin’ on, I’m rollin’ on
I’m through with you, too bad you’re blue
But I’m movin’ on
Move on baby, move on
I said move on, I said move on,
I said move on, I said move on,
Well I’m through with you, too bad you’re blue
I said move on, I said move on
I said move on, I said move on

I’m Not the Marrying Kind

(Words & music by David – Edwards)

Show me a girl with a dimple on her cheek
Butter melts in her mouth
When she opens it to speak
Show me a girl who is acting so refined
And I’ll show you a girl with one thing on her mind
So I say “You know what?” She says “What?”
I say “What? Oh I’m not the marrying kind
For you’ve got what it takes
And it takes what you’ve got
But I’m not the marrying kind
Don’t kiss me, don’t claw me
Don’t pet me, don’t paw me
And I won’t leave my freedom behind”
So I say “You know what?” She says “What?”
I say “What? Oh I’m not the marrying kind.
You know what?” She says “What?”
“Thanks a lot, but I’m not the marrying kind
Don’t kiss me, don’t claw me
Don’t pet me, don’t paw me
And I won’t leave my freedom behind”
So I say “You know what?” She says “What?”
I say “What? Oh I’m not the marrying kind
I’m not, I’m not, I’m not, I’m not
Now you’ve got what I’m not
I’m not the marrying kind
Oh I’m not the marrying kind
Oh I’m not the marrying kind

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

(words & music by Williams)

Hear that lonesome winter bird
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I’m so lonesome I could cry
Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves began to die
That means he’s lost the will to live
I’m so lonesome I could cry
The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I’m so lonesome I could cry
I’m so lonesome I could cry
_____________________________________________________________
I’m With a Crowd But So Alone

(Words & music by Ernest Tubb – Carl Story)

I’m with a crowd but oh so alone
I still have the picture you sent me
And you signed it with love you recall
And the one of me that you wanted
Is now hanging face to the wall
At night I’m never alone
I’m afraid that I’ll weaken and phone
And I’m afraid that you will be gone
I’m with a crowd but oh so alone

I’m Yours
(Words & music: Don Robertson / Hal Blair)

My love I offer you now,
My heart and all it can give,
For just as long as I live I’m yours.
No arms but yours dear will do.
My lips will always be true,
My eyes can see only you, I’m yours.
And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears I’ll gladly share,
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand and I’ll be there,
With every beat of my heart,
With every breath that I take,
Now and forever, sweetheart, I’m yours.
And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears I’ll gladly share,
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand and I’ll be there,
With every beat of my heart,
With every breath that I take,
Now and forever, sweetheart, I’m yours.

Indescribably Blue

(words & music by Darrell Glenn)

Our friends all ask me
The last time I saw you
And I smile and tell them
It’s been a day or two
There’s no way to explain it
The way that I miss you
And my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue
I talk to your picture
My fav’rite one of you
I wish that you were here with me
But what good will it do
Having no way to tell you
The pain that I’ve been through
Oh, my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue
Yes, my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue

It Aint No Big Thing But Its Growing

(Words & music by Merrit – Joy – Hall)

Your losing interest in me and it’s showin’
It ain’t no big thing but it’s growin’
The pain of heartbreak I’ve just started knowin’
Well, it ain’t no big thing but it’s growin’
Every day the hurt grows bigger than before
But I’ll pretend I don’t know this
But If I can hold you one day more
You’ve got the look of someone who’s goin’
You’re gonna leave me and it’s showin’
A little tear I can feel start to flow
It ain’t no big thing but it’s growin’
Well every day the hurt grows bigger than before
But I’ll pretend I don’t know this
Well, if I can hold you one day more
You’ve got the look of someone who’s goin’
Well, you’re gonna leave me and it’s showin’

It Feels So Right

Step in these arms, where you belong
It feels so right, so right
How can it be wrong?
There’s something in the way you kiss
That makes me want to hold you tight
I know that nothing can be wrong
that feels so right.
Each time we touch, you thrill me so
It means so much, so much
I can’t let you go
This isn’t only for tonight
We’re gonna love our whole life long
‘Cause baby, if it feels so right
How can it be wrong?

It Hurts Me

(words & music by Byers – Daniels)

It hurts me to see him treat you the way that he does
It hurts me to see you sit and cry
When I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see those those tears in your eyes
The whole town is talking, they’re callin’ you a fool
For listening to his same old lies
And when I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see the way he makes you cry
You love him so much, you’re too blind to see
He’s only playing a game
He’s never loved you
He never will
And darling, don’t you know he’ll never change
Oh, I know he never will set you free
Because he’s just that kind of guy
But if you ever tell him you’re through
I’ll be waiting for you
Waiting to hold you so tight
Waiting to kiss you goodnight
Yes, darling, if I had someone like you

It Is No Secret What God Can Do

(Words & music by Stuart Hamblin)

The chimes of time ring out the news,
Another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell.
Was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength,
Your courage to renew.
Do not be disheartened,
For I have news for you.
It is no secret what God can do.
What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.
With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.
There is no night for in His light
You’ll never walk alone.
Always feel at home,
Wherever you may go.
There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side.
Take Him at His promise,
Don’t run away and hide.
It is no secret what God can do.
What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.
With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.

It Keeps Right on A hurtin

(Words & music by J. Tillotson)

I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing I could hold you tight
Life seems so empty since you went away
And the pillow where you lay your head
Now holds my empty dreams instead
And it keeps right on a-hurtin’
Since you’re gone
It keeps right on a’hurtin every minute of the day
Every hour you’re away I feel so lonely
And I can’t help it, I don’t think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin’ since you’re gone
They say a man ain’t supposed to cry
But when I see you passing by
My heart breaks down and cries a million tears
The pillow where you lay your head
Now holds my empty dreams instead
And it keeps right on a-hurtin’ since you’re gone
It keeps right on a’hurtin every minute of the day
Every hour you’re away I feel so lonely
And I can’t help it, I don’t think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin’ since you’re gone
Yes, it keeps right on a-hurtin’ since you’re gone

It Wont Be Long

(Words & music by Wayne – Weisman)

The shooting stars are coming out of your eyes
They point the way, the way to paradise
I got a funny feeling, I can’t be wrong
It won’t be long until the sparks will fly
It won’t be long
I hear a buzz, buzz around in my brain
But what it does, is bound to drive me insane
At a time like this I must be strong
It won’t be long till the sky falls down
It won’t be long
Love has taught me plenty, I’m still learning more
Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Here I go, I’m on a one way trip
Look out below because I’m about to flip
I tell you when these lips get to that kiss
It won’t be long until we’re out of this world
It won’t be long
Love has taught me plenty, I’m still learning more
Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Here I go, I’m on a one way trip
Look out below because I’m about to flip
I tell you when these lips get to that kiss
It won’t be long, it won’t be long until we’re out of this world
It won’t be long
It won’t be long, it won’t be long until we’re out of this world
It won’t be long

It Wont Seem Like Christmas

(words & music by J.A. Balthrop)

Oh, it won’t seem like Christmas, oh, without you
Far too many miles are between
But if I get the one thing I’m waiting for
Well then I’ll se you tonight in my dreams
Seems a long time since we’ve been together
It was just about to this time of the year
Looks like it’s gonna be snowy weather
How I wish that you could be here
But it won’t seem like Christmas, oh, without you
Far too many miles are between
But if I get the one thing that I’m wishing for
Then I’ll see you tonight in my dreams
In the distance I hear sleigh bells ringing
The holly is so pretty this year
And the carol that somebody’s singing
Reminds me of our Christmas last year

It Wouldnt Be the Same without You

(words & music by Wakely/Rose)

I could wander the byway, rewander too
But it wouldn’t be the same without you
Those familiair old places would just make me blue
‘Cause it wouldn’t be the same without you
I wasted my love on a careless romance
But I’d do it again, if I had the chance
I could start my life over with somebody new
But it wouldn’t be the same without you
I wasted my love on a careless romance
But I’d do it again, if I had the chance
I could start my life over with somebody new
But it wouldn’t be the same without you

Its Diff rent Now

(Words & music by Clive Westlake)

Look at you and tell myself
How wonderful you are
You’re so different now
To me you’re much more wonderful, more wonderful by far
Yes, you’re different now
There’s more to love than holding hands and stealing kisses
No-one else around
There’s the good times and the bad
There’s the ups and downs we’ve had
But it’s different now I’m so glad I still have you
Ah
There’s always something new to see
I look at you, you look at me
And we’re so different now
Love gets better every day ‘n in some peculiar way
It’s always different now
If we ever say goodbye, you’d be lost
And so would I, what’s the difference now between us
Love just for a day, and a love that’s here to stay
That’s the difference now, the difference now
Ah

Its Easy for You

(Words & music by A. Lloyd-Webber – T. Rice)

You may not mind that it’s over
But I’ve a different point of view
Even though I am shattered
It’s easy for you
You don’t have to face the music
You don’t have to face the crowd
Just go back where you came from
You ain’t even proud
I had a wife and I had children
I threw them all away
And now you tell me, you dare to tell me
I should go back to them
What do you think I should say
I found it hard to leave them
Saddest thing I ever had to do
My problems haven’t started
And it’s easy for you
I had a wife and I had children
I threw them all away
And now you tell me, you dare to tell me
I should go back to them
What do you think, what on earth do you think I should say
If you ever tire of the good life
Call me in a year or two
I’ve got no choice, I’ll forgive you
‘Cause it’s easy for you
You only have to call me, it’s easy for you
You only have to call me, it’s easy for you

Its Impossible

(Words & music by Wayne – Manzanero)

It’s impossible to tell the sun to leave the sky,
It’s just impossible.
It’s impossible to ask a baby not to cry,
It’s just impossible.
Can I hold you closer to me
And not feel you going through me,
But the second that I never think of you?
Oh, how impossible.
Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore?
It’s just impossible.
If I had you could I ever ask for more?
It’s just impossible.
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world
Somehow I’d get it, I would sell my very soul
And not regret it for to live without your love
Is just impossible
Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore?
It’s just impossible.
If I had you could I ever ask for more?
It’s just impossible.
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world
Somehow I’d get it, I would sell my very soul
And not regret it for to live without your love
Is just impossible
Oh impossible,
Impossible.
Impossible

Its Midnight

(Words & music by Wheeler – Chesnut)

Maybe it’s too late. Sometimes I even hate myself for loving you
Trying to be strong then nighttime comes along and I start loving you
Wanting you. Where is all my selfcontrol I’m burning way down in my soul
And needing you, and wishing I could be the man, I try to
Hating me for wanting you to be with you knowing you don’t love me like you used to
But it’s midnight, Ohh and I miss you
It’s getting late and I know that’s when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light
I ought to go to bed to try and straighten out my head and just forget you
Oh but it’s midnight yes and I miss you
It’s getting late and I know that’s when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light
I ought to go to bed to try and straighten out my head and just forget you
Oh but it’s midnight yes and I miss you
It’s midnight and I miss you

Its No Fun Being Lonely

(Words & Music Red West)

It’s no fun being lonely

Morning must come
Knowing, knowing there’s no one for me
…..
Knowing, knowing there’s no one waiting for me

Its Now or Never

words & music by Aaron Schroeder – Wally Gold)

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.
When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.
It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.
Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we’ll meet again this way
It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

Its Over

(words & music by Rodgers)

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There’d be no coming day
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over
When you walk away from me
There is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes against the sun
That rises over the land
I watch you walk away
Somehow I have to let you go
Cause it’s over
If you knew just how I really feel
You might return and yet
There are so many times
That people have to love and then forget
Oh there might have been a way somehow
I have to force myself to say
It’s over
So I turn my back,
Turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence
Trying not to think at all
I set my feet before me
Walk the silent street before me
Now it’s over
If time were not a moving thing
And I could make you stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There’d be no coming day
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over
It’s over

Its Still Here

(Words & music by Ivory Joe Hunter)

The day you said we’d never part
You turned around and broke my heart
You had the nerve to tell me I would soon forget
Now you’ve been gone away one year
And I have not forgotten dear
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
Wow-oh
It’s here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We’re really through
And though you said we’d never part
You turned around and broke my heart
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
It’s here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We’re really through
Now you’ve been gone away one year
And I have not forgotten dear
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
Wow-oh
It’s here, it’s here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We’re really through
And though you said we’d never part
You turned around and broke my heart
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
Wow-ow
It’s here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We’re really through
And though you said we’d never part
You turned around and broke my heart
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
Oh yeah

Its Your Baby, You Rock It

(words & music by Shiri Milete – Nora Fowler)

You offered me a penny for my thoughts
And I told you then that woman won’t stay caught
But you turned around and loved her anyway
She broke your heart and all I’ve got to say
It’s your baby, you rock it
It’s your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And I’m tired of hearing about it friend
It’s your baby you, rock it
Well you cried upon my shoulder like a baby
I’m sorry ’bout your troubles and your lady
But she done you like she done me and I’ve used
up all my sympathy
It’s your baby you, rock it
It’s your baby, you rock it
It’s your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And I’m tired of hearing about it friend
It’s your baby you, rock it

I’ve Been Blue

(Words & Music: Red West)

(You) Where, o where are you
Tell me where are you
Where are the nights we spent together
Where is your promise
that you will leave me never
I’ve been blue the whole day through
Where o where are you

I’ve Got a Thing About You Baby

(words & music by Tony Joe White)

I’ve got something to tell you
That I think you ought to know
That my eyes are on you baby
Since a long time ago
And now I fin’ly got the nerve
And I’m gonna make my move
Now don’t you try to turn me off
Cause it’s gonna be hard to do
Ain’t No Two Ways About It Baby
Your Love Was Meant For Me
Know That I Can’t Do Without It
It Fits Me To A Tee
Oh There’s Something About You Baby
Can’t Get You Off My Mind
I Know That I Can’t Live Without You
I Think About You All The Time
I’ve got a thing about you baby
Ain’t nothing I can do
I’ve got a thing about you baby
A thing about lovin’ you
Ain’t it just like a woman
When she knows she’s got a man
She’ll wring you out and turn you ’bout
In the palm of her hand
And then she starts to thinkin’
Then maybe she’s put you in a blind
She’ll give you just a little lovin’
It’ll drive you out of your mind
I’ve got a thing about you baby
Ain’t nothing you can do
I’ve got a thing about you baby
A thing about lovin’ you

I’ve Got Confidence

(words & music by Andrea Crouch)

When trouble is in my way
I can’t tell the night from day
I toss from side to side
Like a ship on a raging tide
I don’t worry and I don’t fret
God has never failed me yet
Troubles comin’ from time to time
But that’s all right, ’cause I’m not the worrying kind
Because I, I’ve got confidence,
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He’s gonna fix it for me
Job was so sick so long
Till the flesh fell from his bones
His wife, cattle and children,
Everything that he had was gone
But Job he never dispaired
He knew that God still cared
Sleepless days and sleepless nights
Job said honey that’s all right
‘Cause I’ve got confidence
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He’s gonna fix it for me
Some folks wonder how I smile
Even though I’m going to trial
How can I have song
Everything is going wrong
I don’t worry and I don’t fret
God has never failed me yet
Trouble’s coming from time to time
That’s all right, I’m not the worrying kind
‘Cause I’ve got confidence…..

I’ve Got to Find My Baby

(Words & music by J. Byers)

I’ve got to find my baby
I wonder where can she be
Has anybody seen her
Send her back to me
She left me here all alone
And I ain’t had no lovin’
Since my baby’s been gone
My baby’s gone
I’ve gotta find my baby
I gotta hold her tight and tell her I love her
Tell her everything’s all right
So I’ll keep searching
All night long
‘Cause I ain’t had no lovin’
Since my baby’s been gone
My baby’s gone
I’ve gotta find my baby
I’ve gotta find my baby
Gotta find my baby

I’ve Lost You

(words & music by Howard – Blaikly)

Lying by your side I watch you sleeping
And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring the dreams you won’t recapture
Though it will haunt the corners of you mind
I’ve Lost though you’re near me
And your body’s still this kind
I’ve lost you on a journey,
But I can’t remember where or when
Who can tell when summer turns to autumn
And who can point the moment love grows cold
Softly without pain the joy is over
Though why it’s gone will neither of us know
Oh, I’ve lost you yes, I’ve lost you
I can’t reach you anymore
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can’t stand in for feeling, oh
Six o’clock the baby will be crying
And you will stumble, sleeping to the door
In the chill and solemn gray of morning
We play the parts that we have learned to well
Oh I’ve lost you, oh, I’ve lost you
Oh, You won’t admit it so
I’ve lost you on a journey,
But I can’t remember where or when no more
Oh, I’ve lost you yes, I’ve lost you
I can’t reach you anymore
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can’t stand in for feeling, oh
Oh, I’ve lost you yes, I’ve lost you
I can’t reach you anymore
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can’t stand in for feeling, oh
