لیریک ترانه های “الویس” که با حرف T آغاز میشوند:

T R O U B L E
by Elvis Presley

I play an old piano from nine till a half past one
Tryin’ to make a livin’ watchin’ everybody have fun
Well, I don’t miss much that ever happens on a dance hall floor
Mercy, look what just walked through that door
Well, hello T-R-0-U-B-L-E
What in the world you’re doin’ A-L-O-N-E?
Say, good L-double O-K-I-N-G
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E
I was a little bitty baby when my papa hit the skids
Mama had a time tryin’ to raise nine kids
Told me not to stare ’cause it was impolite
And did the best she could to try to raise me right
But mama never told me ’bout nothing like Y-O-U
Say, your mama must have been another something or the other too
Say, hello good L-double O-K-I-N-G
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E
Well, you talk about a woman I’ve seen a lot of others
But too much something’ and not enough another
You’ve got it all together like a lovin’ machine
Lookin’ like glory and walkin’ like a dream
Mother Nature’s sure been good to Y-O-U
Well, your mama must have been another good lookin’ too
Say, hey, good L-double O-K-I-N-G
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E
Well, you talk about a trouble-makin’ hunka pokey bait,
The men are gonna love and all the women gonna hate
Reminding them of everything they never gonna be
Maybe the beginning of the World War III
Oh, the world ain’t ready for nothin’ like a Y-O-U
Well, I bet your mama must have been another something or the other too
Say hey good L-double O-K-I-N-G
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-

Take Good Care Of Her
(Warren / Kent)

Take good care of her, take good care of her
I suppose I ought to say congratulations
For you won the only girl I ever loved
But I hurt too much to face the situation
Just take good care of her, take good care of her
Just to be around her was my greatest pleasure
She was ev’rything my future held in store
So remember when you take my only treasure
Just take good care of her, take good care of her
I must accept it, she loves you more than me
So with my broken heart I’ll bow out gracefully
Please don’t send me any wedding invitation
For I couldn’t bear to see her there with you
If she’s happy, that will be my consolation
Just take good care of her, take good care of her
Da da da da da da da da
Take good care of her, take good care of her

Take me to the fair
(Sid Tepper,Roy C. Bennett)
(As sung by Elvis in the 1963 movie “It Happened At The World’s Fair”)

Take…me to the fair
Take me to the fair, don’t know anywhere

Let’s, go to the fair
We’ll walk hand in hand, through Tomorrow Land
Honey you and me
* I wanna see everything, do everything
While we’re viewin’ it all
I’ll buy the peanuts and popcorn
We’ll have us a ball
You…can spend my pay
Crush me in the crowds, I’ll be in the clouds
Honey I don’t care
Take …. me there by sleigh
Roller skate or bike, anyway you like
But take me to the fair
* Repeat
Take …. me there by sleigh
Roller skate or bike, anyway you like
But take me to the fair
Take me to the fair, Take me to the fair
Take…me…to…the…FAIR

Take My Hand Precious Lord
(Thomas A. Dorsey)

* Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak and worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
* Repeat

Talk About The Good Times
(Jerry Reed Hubbard)

Hmm, well I remember when I was just children
A time when people used to treat the neighbour like a fellow man
Them all day singin’s and big prayer meetin’s
When a man was proud to walk up and shake his neighbours hand
Lord you talk about the good times, (talk about the good times)
Talk about the good times (talk about the good times)
Oh if you ever needed help a friend was there
Some good neighbour (talk about the good times)
Help lift your burden (talk about the good times)
Mmmm, and the simple joys of life your friends would share
Times are harder and the people are changin’
You know most folks couldn’t tell ya who their neighbours are
All their guns are loaded, the front doors are bolted
Ain’t this ol’ world takin’ hate and fear just a little too far
Oh you talk about the good times, (talk about the good times)
Talk about the good times (talk about the good times)
Oh I wish I could go back to the days I’m speakin of
When a friend would meet you (talk about the good times)
And a smile would greet you (talk about the good times)
What this ol’ world needs now is a little old fashioned love
My granddaddy God rest his soul now
Yeah we had a big long talk together the day he died
He said “Son this world is full of hate and venom
An’ I can’t wait to leave this ol’ place and rest on the other side.”
* ‘Cause you talk about the good times, talk about the good times
Talk about the good times (talk about the good times)
Well I’m gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol’ days
Have a big hand shakin’ (talk about the good times)
Sit and talk together (talk about the good times)
Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away
* Repeat
* Repeat

(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear
(Mann / Lowe)

(Recorded for the film “Loving You”)

A-baby let me be, your lovin’ Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck, and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (Oh let him be)
Your teddy bear.
* I don’t wanna be a tiger
‘Cause tigers play it too rough
I don’t wanna be your lion
‘Cause lions ain’t the kind you love enough
I just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (Oh let him be)
Your teddy bear
Baby let me be, around you ev’ry night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight

Tell Me Why
(Titus Iurner)

Every time I look at someone new
Tell me why I think of you
Then you sometimes pass me by
You’re playing with love
Darling tell me why
You left me all alone
To cry over you
My heart is torn and broken
And there’s nothing left to do
In my prayers, I’ll mention you
When you’re gone I feel so blue
Why can’t I have all of you?
Oh, somebody, please tell me why
______________________________________________________________________
Tender Feeling
(Giant / Baum / Kaye)
(Recorded for the film “Kissing Cousins”)

I can’t conceal a tender feeling
Now that you are close to me
I look at you with tender feeling
And can’t help kiss you tenderly
I offer you a true devotion
All life through my love I vow
For this is real, this sweet emotion
This tender feeling I have now
Somehow I knew from the moment our lips first met
You’d be the girl I could never forget
No other love could be appealing
I loved you right from the start
And with each kiss I’ll keep revealing
The tender feeling in my heart

Well I remember the night
Only you know how much I ………

Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling, thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling, thanks to the rolling sea

That’s Someone You Never Forget
(West – Presley)

The little things you planned
Her memory is with you yet
That’s someone you never forget
When she is far away
You’ll think of her each day
And you’ll know she’ll wait for you
That’s someone you’ll never forget

And let you think their love is true
But you know that they’ll never replace
The one that waits for you

The bullfighter was a lady
(Sid Tepper, Roy C. Bennett)
(As sung by Elvis in the 1963 movie “Fun In Acapulco”)

chorus (OLE!!)
Pedro the bull was a killer
King of the bullfight arena
He’d wipe up the floor with each brave matador
And have matador stew for his dinner
He heard the crowd shouting “OLE”!!
But he met his master that day
The bullfighter was a lady
And it was true love at first sight
Her red cape was waving but Pedro was shaving
He wanted to date her that night
chorus “OLE”!!
Pedro the bull he was smitten
First time the love bug had bitten
He once was a mad bull, a wild and a bad bull
But now he was mild as a kitten
The people were starting to hiss
But Pedro just wanted to kiss
The bullfighter was a lady
And Pedro he liked what he saw
He floated on air with a rose in his hair
As he waltzed with that sweet matador
His fate was a bad one, his tale is a sad one
It’s hanging right over…
Her…DOOR……”OLE”!!

The Fair’s Moving On
(Fletcher / Flett)

All the rides are over and done
It’s late and no prizes are left to be won
The rides are closed, it’s the end of the day
The horses are moving away
Yes the fair’s moving on
And I’ll soon be gone
Remember the love that we’ve known
Yes the fair’s moving on
But I won’t leave you long
It’s the last time you’ll be on your own
The music has ended, the carousel’s still
The horses in boxes with the big ferris wheel
The canvass and glitter are safely on board
The trailers will soon hit the road
Yes the fair’s moving on
And I’ll soon be gone
Remember the love that we’ve had
Yes the fair’s moving on
But I won’t leave you long
I’m comin’ back so please don’t be sad
At dawn I’ll be gone but I’ll soon return
Till then the fair’s moving on (fair’s moving on)
Till then the fair’s moving on (fair’s moving on)
Till then the fair’s moving on (fair’s moving on)
Till then the fair’s moving on

The first Noel
(Arranged by Elvis Presley)

The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
* Noel, Noel
Noel,Noel
Born is the King of Israel.
They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East, beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued, both day and night.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
(Ewan MacColl)
(Live, May 27 1974 Special 3 a.m. Closing Show)

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies my love
To the dark and the empty skies
The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like a trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love
That was there at my command
Hoa hoa hoa oh oh oh oh oh oh
Woh oh oh oh hoa hoa hoa
Oh hoa hoa hoa hoa hoa hoa
That was there at my command my love
That was there at my command
And the first time ever I lay with you
And felt your hearbeat close to mine
I knew what joy would fill the earth
And would last till the end of time, my love
And would last till the end of time
Hup! hup! hup! hup! hup!

The Girl I Never Loved
(Randy Starr)
(Recorded for the film “Clambake”)

The girl I never loved
Will never know I care
And all my dreams of her
Are dreams I’ll never share
Oh I want her and I need her
And I know it might have been
But it ended long before it could begin
The kiss I never got
Somebody else will take
The plans I never made
Somebody else will make
Oh I’m lonely, I’m so lonely
‘Cos it’s her I’m thinking of
But she’ll always be the girl I never loved
Never loved, never loved

The Girl Of My Best Friend
(Beverly Ross – Sam Bobrick)

The way she walks
The way she talks
How long can I pretend?
Oh I can’t help it
I’m in love with the girl of my best friend
Her lovely hair
Her skin so fair
I could go on and never end
Oh I can’t help it
I’m in love with the girl of my best friend
I want to tell her
How I love her so
And hold her in my arms but then
What if she got real mad
And told him so
I could never face either one again
Oh the way they kiss
Their happiness
Will my aching heart ever mend?
Or will I always be in love
With the girl of my best friend?
Never end, will it ever end ….
Please let it end
Will it ever end

The Impossible Dream (The Quest)
(Leigh / Darion)

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To be better far than you are
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
Oh this is my quest to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause
And I know if I’ll only be true to this glorious quest
And my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man swarmed and covered the star
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
And the world will be better for this
Oh that one man swarmed and covered the star
He still strove with his last ounce of courage
For to reach the unreachable star

The Lady Loves Me
(With Ann-Margaret)
(Tepper Bennett)
Recorded for the film “Viva Las Vegas”

(E.P.)
She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me, she loves me
The lady loves me and it shows
In spite of the way she turns up her nose
I’m her ideal, her heart’s desire
Under that ice she’s burning like fire
She’d like to cuddle up to me
She’s playing hard to get
The lady loves me, but she doesn’t know it yet
(A.M.)
The gentleman has savoir-faire
As much as an elephant or a bear
I’d like to take him for a spin
Back to the zoo to visit his kin
He’s got about as much appeal as a soggy cigarette
The lady loathes him but he doesn’t know it yet
(E.P.)
The lady’s got a crush on me
(A.M.)
The gentleman’s crazy obviously
(E.P.)
The lady’s dying to be kissed
(A.M.)
The gentleman needs a psychiatrist
I’d rather kiss a rattlesnake
Or play Russian roulette
(E.P.)
The lady loves me, but she doesn’t know it yet
She’s falling fast she’s on the skids
(A.M.)
Both of his heads are flipping their lids
(E.P.)
Tonight she’ll hold me in her arms
(A.M.)
I’d rather be holding hydrogen bombs
Will someone tell this Romeo
I’m not his Juliette
(E.P.)
Ah, the lady loves me, but she doesn’t know it yet
She wants me
(A.M.)
Like poison ivy
(E.P.)
Needs me
(A.M.)
Like a hole in the head
(E.P.)
Anyone can see she’s got it bad
(A.M.)
Ha, he’s mad!
The gentleman is an egotist
(E.P.)
I’m simply aware I’m hard to resist
(A.M.)
He’s one man I could learn to hate
(E.P.)
How’s about having dinner at eight
(A.M.)
I’d rather dine with Frankenstein
In a moonlight tete-a-tete
(E.P.)
Ah, the lady loves me, but she doesn’t know it yet
Ah yes she loves me
(A.M.)
Dig that shrinking violet
(E.P.)
Oh she really loves me
(A.M.)
Here’s one gal you’ll never get
(E.P.)
She lo lo loves me
(A.M.)
Would you like to make a bet
(E.P.)
I said the lady loves me
(A.M.)
The gentleman’s all wet

The Last Farewell
(Roger Whittaker – R.A. Webster)

There’s a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell
* For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell
* Repeat
I heard there’s a wicked war a-blazing
And the taste of war I know so very well
Even now I see the foreign flag a-raising
Their guns on fire as we sail into hell
I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow
But how bitter will be this last farewell
* Repeat
* Repeat
Though death and darkness gather all about me
My ship be torn apart upon the sea
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
And the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
And should I return home safe again to England
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale
* Repeat
* Repeat

The lord’s prayer
(traditional)
(as recorded by Elvis in rehearsal, 1969)

Our Father, Which Art in Heaven
Hallowed be, Thy Name
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be Done
On earth, as it is, in Heaven
Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever
AMEN

The Love Machine
(Nelson / Burch / Taylor)
(Composed for the film “Easy Come, Easy Go”)

Step right up to the love machine
You may get lucky when you zap a dream
Let the wheel go ’round, ’round and ’round
You may win that girl you’ve never found
She may be Suzy or Maybelline
She could be Cathy or Angeline
Let the wheel go round, round and round
Try your luck right now on the love machine
* We’re just a bunch of salty sailors
One thing on our mind
Takin’ a chance on this machine
Maybe love we’ll find
She maybe tall she maybe short
She may be wide
But Lady Luck stop that wheel
At 38-24-35
Step up, who’s next in line
This love machine don’t waste no time
Let the wheel go round, round and round
What will your fortune be on the love machine
Alright
* Repeat
Let the wheel go around and around and around
And around and around and around and around
What will your fortune be on the love machine
What will your fortune be on the love machine

The Meanest Girl In Town
(J. Byers)
(Recorded for the film “Girl Happy”)

She’ll tell you that she loves you, make you feel just like a king
She’ll cry to you and lie to you, she’ll do ‘most anything
She’ll get right up next to you and the first thing that you know
You’ll be tellin’ her you’re sorry because she hurt you so
I said she’s evil the most evil girl I’ve found
Ah yeah, there ain’t no doubt about it, she’s the meanest girl in town, hah hah
She’ll invite you over to her house at half past nine
You’ll wear a suit, you’ll wear a tie and you’ll give your shoes a shine
You’ll take a real deep breath and knock on her front door
Her little sister will tell you “She don’t live here anymore”
I said she’s evil the most evil girl I’ve found ah ah ah yeah
There ain’t no doubt about it, she’s the meanest girl in town
And there ain’t no doubt about it, she’s the meanest girl in town
She’ll put her arms around you and squeeze with all her might
She’ll breathe a sigh and pucker her lips and close her eyes real tight
Your heart will pound like thunder, you’ll melt in her embrace
But when you go to kiss her well she’ll laugh right in your face
Because she’s evil the most evil girl I’ve found, hah hah
There ain’t no doubt about it, she’s the meanest girl in town

The next step is love

(words & music by Evans – Parnes)

Yesterday, I slipped away
The sun is welcoming the evening shadows
On a perfect day and the next step is love
The next step is love
We walked barefoot through the misty meadows
Laughing at each other in the rain
Made some faces at some people in the park
Didn’t bother to explain
Fun, fun, look at us run
Going nowhere special really fast
But we’ve yet to taste the icing on the cake
That we’ve been baking with the past
And the next step is love
So what are we waiting for?
The next step is love
Girl, it’s for sure
Love will be a place to run to
From the world they’ve built to you and me
We’ll be closer than we’ve ever been
Though looking back it’s so hard to believe
Hang it all out or bring it all in
The best we’ve picked upon the way tonight
Changes are coming but together
We can make it through somehow
Yes the next step is love
______________________________________________________________________
The Sound of Your Cry

(Words & music by Giant – Baum – Kaye)

The clock by the bed is ticking too loud in the quiet night
I lie in the darkness thinking I must go before it’s light
Before you open up your eyes and you beg me to stay
I’ll leave ’cause I can’t stand to see you hurt this way
Sleep my love as I kiss you goodbye
Then I won’t hear the sound of your cry
Though I knew the time was coming and our love would end somehow
I just couldn’t bear to tell you exactly just when or how
I know we can’t go on, that it was wrong to start
But if you wake up crying now, you know you’ll break my heart
Sleep my love as I kiss you goodbye
Then I won’t hear the sound of your cry
Sleep my love as I kiss you goodbye
Then I won’t hear the sound of your cry
Ohhhh, Sleep my love as I kiss you, kiss you, kiss you goodbye
Then I won’t hear the sound of your cry
Ohhhh, Sleep my love as I kiss you
______________________________________________________________________
The Twelfth of Never

(Words & music by Livingstone – Webster)

You ask how much I need you
Must I explain
I need you oh my darling
Like roses need rain
You ask how long I’ll love you
I’ll tell you true
Until the twelfth of never I’ll still be loving you
Hold me close
Never let me go
Hold me close
Melt my heart like April snow
I’ll love you ’till the blue bells forget to bloom
I’ll love you ’till the clover has lost its perfume
I’ll love you ’till the poets run out of rhyme
Oh, until the twelfth of never
And that’s a long long time
Until the twelfth of never
And that’s a long long time
______________________________________________________________________
The Walls Have Ears

(Words & music by Bennett – Tepper)

The walls have ears, ears that hear each little sound you make
Every time you stamp through a lamp and every cup and dish you break
But they can’t hear a kiss or two arms that hold you tight
So come on baby, don’t fight tonight
The walls have ears, better think before you fling that shoe
If you part my hair with a chair, they’ll spread the news to Timbuktu
But they can’t hear a kiss or two arms that hold you tight
So come on baby, don’t fight tonight
Jets can fly, fast and high, rockets can go even faster
But they can’t catch or even match sound traveling through plaster
The walls have ears, ears that hear each little sound you make
Every time you stamp through a lamp and every cup and dish you break
But they can’t hear a kiss or two arms that hold you tight
So come on baby, don’t fight tonight
Just in tonight
Don’t fight tonight

(Words & music by Galloway – Minnigerode – Pomeroy)

Gentleman songsters off on a spree
Doomed from here to eternity
Lord have mercy on such as we
Baa Baa Baa

The Wonder of You

(words & music by Baker Knight)

When no-one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on
And you’re always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
That’s the wonder
The wonder of you
And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I’m a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything
I’ll guess I’ll never know the reason why
You love me like you do
That’s the wonder
The wonder of you

The Wonderful World of Christmas
(words & music by Charles Tobias – Al Frisch)

The wonderful world of Christmas
Is a wonderful world to behold
The wonderful world of Christmas
Was made for the young and the old
Smile and good cheer of each neighbor
And children with cheeks all aglow
So warm is this Christmassy feeling
With the tree tops all locked up with snow
Listen to those wondrous bells
And you’ll hear them say
Open up your hearts to all on this holy day
The wonderful world of Christmas
Is a joy from the moment it starts
The wonderful world of Christmas
Shall remain everyday in our hearts

The Yellow Rose of Texas
(Words & music by Wise – Starr / Lance – Sinclair)

Oh the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl I love
Her eyes are even bluer than Texas skies above
Her heart’s as big as Texas and wherever I may go
I’ll remember her forever because I love her so
There are so many roses that bloom along the way
But my heart’s in Amarillo and that’s where it will stay
With the yellow rose of Texas so I’d better get there fast
‘Cause I know I was her first love and I want to be her last
Oh the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl I love
Her eyes are even bluer than Texas skies above
Her heart’s as big as Texas and wherever I may go
I’ll remember her forever because I love her so
The eyes of Texas are upon you all the live long day
The eyes of Texas are upon you, you cannot get away
Do not think you can escape them at night or early in the morn
The eyes of Texas are upon you ’till Gabriel blows his horn
The eyes of Texas are upon you all the live long day
The eyes of Texas are upon you, you cannot get away
Do not think you can escape them at night or early in the morn
The eyes of Texas are upon you ’till Gabriel blows his horn
The eyes of Texas are upon you all the live long day
The eyes of Texas are upon you, you cannot get away
Do not think you can escape them at night or early in the morn
The eyes of Texas are upon you ’till Gabriel blows his horn

There Ain t Nothing Like a Song
(Words & music by Byers – Johnston)

When you say that’s it boy
I’m finally beat
You’re goin’ ninety miles an hour
Down a dead end street
You don’t want to fight no more
You think that you can’t win
Come on boy take a real deep breath
Jump right in and
Hold your head up high
Oh you gotta be strong
Come on and sing, sing, sing
There ain’t nothing like a song
Now they may take away your job
Take your fancy car
They may repossess your clothes, take that fine guitar
They may take everything you own
Well that’s just for today
As long as you’ve got a song in your heart
Tomorrow’s gonna be O.K.
Hold your head up high
Oh you gotta be strong
Come on and sing, sing, sing
There ain’t nothing like a song
All right
There ain’t nothing gonna stop you
Once you’ve set your mind
The only people gonna knock you
Are jealous of what they find
Just keep a smile right on your face
Don’t let ’em get you down
When you wake up tomorrow
The world is spinnin’ round
Hold your head up high, hey, hey, hey
You gotta be strong, all right
Come on and sing, sing, sing
There ain’t nothing like a song
Well lovin’s all that I can give you
(Baby that’s enough)
You ain’t easy to satisfy
(Baby I ain’t that tough)
Now hey little girl you’re about the wildest
Thing I’ve ever seen
(When I’m with you baby I’m a lovin’ machine)
Come on and kiss me honey
Oh you gotta be strong
Come on and sing, sing
There ain’t nothing like a song
Come on and sing, (sing) sing
(sing) sing, (sing) sing
There ain’t nothing like a song

There Goes My Everything
(words & music by Dallas Frazier)

There goes my only possession
There goes my everything
I hear footsteps slowly walking
As they gently walk across the lonely floor
And a voice is softly saying
Darling this will be goodbye for evermore
There goes my reason for living
There goes the one of my dreams
There goes my only possession
There goes my everything
As my memory turns back the pages
I can see the happy years we’ve had before
Now the love that kept this heart beating
Has been shattered by the closing of the door

There Is No God but God
(words & music by Bill Kenny)

There is no God, but God,
I know this is true
God made everything,
He made me, He made you
There’d be no birds,
No planes to sail in the blue
Without his wondrous eyes
To see them through
They say God made land
And He gave it all to man
Yes I know He’s mighty good and true
There is no God, but God
And He knows everything to do
So just you call on Him
And He will share His love with you
There is no God, but God
I know this is true
For God made everything,
He made me, He made you
There’d be no birds,
No planes to sail in the blue
Without his wondrous eyes
To see them through
They say God made land
And He gave it all to man
This I know is mighty, good and true
There is no God, but God
And He knows everything to do
So just you call on Him
And He will share His love with you

There Is So Much World to See
(Words & music by Wayne – Weisman)

Baby it’s wrong wrong as can be
To try and tie guy like me
I could never settle down in a little sleepy town
There’s so much world to see
Sure would be happy for a while
But then we’d have to part
When tears replace your loving smile
Well I don’t want to be the guy who has to break your heart
So here’s where it ends
Not lovers but friends
Though your lips are tempting me
Maybe I’m a fool and yet
This wanderer just can’t forget
There’s so much world to see
Sure would be happy for a while
But then we’d have to part
When tears replace your loving smile
Well I don’t want to be the guy who has to break your heart
So here’s where it ends
Not lovers but friends
Though your lips are tempting me
Maybe I’m a fool and yet
This wanderer just can’t forget
There’s so much world to see
For me, there’s so much world to see
Yeah! yeah! Mmm

There’s Always Me
(words & music by Don Robertson)

When the evening shadows fall,
And you’re wond’ring who to call
For a little company
There’s always me
Or if your great romance should end,
And you’re lonesome for a friend
Darling, you need never be
There’s always me
I don’t seem to mind somehow
Playing second fiddle now
Someday you’ll want me, dear,
and when that day is here,
Within my arms you’ll come to know
Other loves may come and go
But my love for you will be eternally
Look around and you will see
There’s always me.

There’s no place like home
Well I say now home, home sweet home
There’s no place like home
Wherever you wander
There’s no place like home
Well I used to have a sweetheart
To walk and talk with me
But now I have no sweetheart
What pleasure do I see
There’s no place like home
Well I say now home, home sweet home
There’s no place like home
Wherever you wander
There’s no place like home
There’s no place like home

Theres a Brand New Day on the Horizon
(Words & music by J. Byers)

There’s a brand new day on the horizon
Everything’s gonna be just fine
There’s a brand new day on the horizon
And the whole world’s gonna be mine
I’m gonna tell old trouble, he’d better be moving on
Happiness is going to take his place around here from now on
The old dark clouds are gonna roll away
The sun is gonna shine
And the whole world’s gonna be mine
I’m gonna tell old heartaches, pack his bags and go
I’ve decided that I don’t want him hanging around no more
Don’t you know I said everything’s gonna be just fine
‘Cause the whole world’s gonna be mine
I’m gonna chase away old problems till they’re out of sight
And I guarantee you honey they won’t be coming back
Well don’t you know I said everything’s gonna be all right
‘Cause the whole world’s gonna be mine
I know my luck’s gonna change, just you wait and see
Startin’ tomorrow only good things in life are going to come to me
There’s a brand new day on the horizon
And the whole world’s gonna be mine
And the whole world’s gonna be mine

There’s a Honky Tonk Angel
(Words & music by T. Seals / D. Rice)

When was the last time you kissed me
And I don’t mean a touch now and then
It’s been a long time since you felt like my woman
And even longer since I felt like your man
So tell me if you think it’s over
And I’ll leave it up to you how it ends
‘Cause if you don’t want the love I can give you
Well there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in
You never look at me and say “I love you”
How much more do you think I can stand
Oh, there’s an old friend out there and she’s waiting
Lord she’s happy just holding my hand
So tell me if you think it’s over
And I’ll leave it up to you how it ends
‘Cause if you don’t want the love I can give you
Well there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in
Yes, there’s a honky tonk angel who will take me back in

They Remind Me Too Much of You
(Words and music by Don Robertson)

Take away, the scent of flowers
Cover up, the sky of blue
Close my ears to tender love songs
They remind me too much of you
Hide young lovers’ warm embraces
Keep stars and moonlight from my view
Let me forget, there are such places
They remind me too much of you
Must I evermore be haunted?
Day after day, my whole life through
By the memory of each moment
That I spent alone with you
If these lovely things don’t hurt you
Our love just wasn’t meant to be
But please come back to me, my darling
If they remind you, too much of me

Thinking About You
(Words & music by Tim Baty)

I woke up this morning and I tried to call you, mmm
But you weren’t there and that put me in despair
So I thought that maybe I could lose my mind
In the countryside so I went for a ride
But I never stopped thinking about you
Found myself wishing you were there
Just to be with me, feel the breeze
Sun didn’t smile I didn’t care
I decided to try just one more time
To let you know I really love you so
Before I arrived I saw you go away
With another guy, a tear filled my eye
But I never stopped thinking about you
Found myself wishing you were there
Just to be with me, feel the breeze
Sun didn’t smile I didn’t care
A long time has past since that day I cried
Life is fine and I’m doin’ fine
When I’m at home and I feel all alone
Well I think of you, try to get a message through
But I never stopped thinking about you
Found myself wishing you were there
Just to be with me, feel the breeze
Sun didn’t smile I didn’t care

This Is Living
(Words & music by Weisman – Wise)

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that’s the life for me
It’s good to laugh and sing, don’t worry about a thing
Wear a happy smile, cut loose and run a mile
If you relax and just enjoy it all, life has got to be a ball
This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that’s the life for me
It wouldn’t mean a thing
If I could be a king
I really wouldn’t care
To be a millionaire
I’d rather find someone to love a lot
Live and give it all I’ve got
This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that’s the life for me
Don’t wanna settle down
I gotta move around
I gotta lot of time
I’m gonna wait and find
The kinda girl who’s heart is restless too
The kind who feels the way I do
This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that’s the life for me

This Is My Heaven

(Words & music by Giant – Baum – Kaye)

This is my heaven
Being here with you
Make it last forever
This is my heaven
It’s a dream come true
Make it last forever
Come to me now
And take my hand
This is the paradise I plan
You’re like an angel
Sent from up above
Let’s stay close together
You brought me heaven
When I shared your love
Make it last forever
Here ‘neath the sky beside the sea
This is my heaven
When you come to me

This Is Our Dance

(Words & music by Reed – Stephens)
We had a real good evening
Now all our friends are leaving
Soon we’ll be alone
Wait till everybody has gone
Then play just one more song
‘Cause this is our dance
Darling remember, it’s our dance
Loving and tender
I’ll take you away, take you away
In my arms
Yes this is our dance, now we’re together
For our dance can’t last forever
And nobody knows just what tomorrow will bring
So let our dance begin
We’ll turn the light down low now
I’ll never let you go now
You’re here in my arms
And when I hear you whisper you’re mine
We’ll play that song just one more time
‘Cause this is our dance
Darling remember, it’s our dance
Loving and tender
I’ll take you away, take you away
In my arms
Yes this is our dance, now we’re together
For our dance can’t last forever
And nobody knows just what tomorrow will bring
So let our dance begin

This Is the Story

(Words & music by Arnold – Morrow – Martin)

I play the song, it was our own
Your photograph’s by my side
I know I can’t forget you
So I don’t even try
The note you left is in my hand
I read again what you say
You’re sorry but you love him
And you’ve both gone away
This is the story of a man
Whose world has fallen apart
And it’s the story
That is breaking my heart
An open fire, our favorite chair
I get a book from the shelf
But the words I am reading
Could apply to myself
This is the story of a man
Whose world has fallen apart
And it’s the story
That is breaking my heart
Yes, it’s the story that is breaking my heart
Yes, it’s the story that is breaking my heart
Yes, it’s the story that is breaking my heart

This-Time—I-Can-t-Stop-Loving-You

(Words & music by Chips Moman / Don Gibson)

I’ll just jump in there whenever I get the chance
I think I forgot to wear my cup
That’s just my way of loving you
This time we’re really breaking up
I know I forgot to wear my cup
Daa da dum
Those happy hours that we once knew
So apart still make me blue
I know that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we’ve been apart
I can’t stop loving you
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of a lonesome time
I can’t stop wanting you
Its useless to say
So I’ll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday
Those happy hours that we once knew
So long ago you know they still make be blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we’ve been apart
I can’t stop loving you
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of a lonesome time
I can’t stop wanting you
Its useless to say
So I’ll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday
Mmmmm my life in dreams of yesterday

Three Corn Patches

I said three corn patches about four cotton fields away
Lives the prettiest girl in the whole darn U.S.A.

About four cotton fields away
Lives the prettiest girl in the whole darn U.S.A.

Gimme three, gimme four

Thrill of Your Love

(Words & music by Stanley Kesler)

I have wished for the wealth
Of a great millionaire
I have reached for a bright star above
But the thrill of it all
To me seems so small
When compared to the thrill of your love
I’d rather give everything
That I own in this world
Than to be all alone and unloved
For no earthly price and no sacrifice
Is too much to give
For your love
I’d rather give everything
That I own in this world
Than to be all alone and unloved
For no earthly price and no sacrifice
Is too much to give
For your love

Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
My black cat comes a runnin’
And the hound dogs get way back
Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back

Tomorrow Is a Long Time

(Words & music by Bob Dylan)

If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not an endless trail
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again
I can’t see my reflection in the water
I can’t speak the sounds that show no pain
I can’t hear the echo of my footsteps
I can’t remember the sound of my own name
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again
There’s beauty in the silver singing river
There’s beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else could match the beauty
That I remember in my true love’s eyes
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again
If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not an endless trail
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again

(words & music by S. Coslow – W. Grosz)

Tomorrow night
Will you remember what you said tonight?
Tomorrow night
Will all thrills be gone?

That’s in my full heart to linger on?
Your lips are so tender,
Your heart is beating fast
And you’re willing to surrender.
Tell me, darling, will it last?
Tomorrow night
Will you be with me when the moon’s bright?
Tomorrow night
Will you say those lovely things you said tonight?
Tomorrow night

Tonight Is So Right for Love

(words & music by Wayne – Silver – Lilly, based on

“G’schichten aus dem Wienerwold” by Johann Strauss)

Hold me tight
The moon’s so bright
Tonight is so right for love
Now’s the time to say
You’re the only one
Tonight is so right for love
One by one the stars appear
They twinkle in your eyes
Who’d believe that we’d be here
So near to paradise
This could be the kiss
To unlock heaven’s door
That magic hour of bliss
That we both waited for
I love more and more
Oh’ we could fly right up to the sky
The things we’ve been dreaming of
And how real they would seem
A midsummernight’s dream
Can’t you see that tonight’s so right for love
And how real they would seem
A midsummernight’s dream
Can’t you see that tonight’s so right for love
Hold me tight
The moon’s so bright
Tonight is so right for love

Oh we could fly right up to the sky
How real it all seems to me
That summer night dream to me
Can’t you see that tonight’s all right for love
Oh we could fly right up to the sky
How real it all seems to me
That summer night dream to me
Can’t you see that tonight’s all right for love

Too Much

(words & music by Lee Rosenberg – Bernard Weinman)

Honey, I love you too much
Need your lovin’ too much
Want the thrill of your touch
Gee, I can’t love you too much
You do all the livin’
While I do all the givin’
Cause I love you too much
You spend all my money too much
Have to share you honey, too much
When I want some lovin’, you’re gone
Don’t you know you’re treatin’ me wrong
Now you got me started
Don’t you leave me broken hearted
Cause I love you too much
Ev’ry time I kiss your sweet lips
I can feel my heart go flip flip
I’m such a fool for your charms
Take me back baby in your arms
Like to hear you sighin’
Even though I know you’re lyin’
Cause I love you too much
Need your lovin’ all the time
Need you huggin’, please be mine
Need you near me, stay real close
Please, please, hear me, you’re the most
Now you got me started
Don’t you leave me broken hearted
Cause I love you too much

Treat-Me-Nice

(words & music by Jerry Leiber – Mike Stoller)

When I walk through that door
Baby be polite
You’re gonna make me sore
If you don’t greet me right
Don’t you ever kiss me once, kiss me twice
Treat me nice
I know that you’ve been told
It’s not fair to tease
So if you come on cold
I’m really gonna freeze
If you don’t want me to be cold as ice
Treat me nice
Make me feel at home
If you really care
Scratch my back and run your pretty
Fingers through my hair
You know I’ll be your slave
If you ask me to
But if you don’t behave
I’ll walk right out on you
If you want my love then take my advice
Treat me nice
Make me feel at home
If you really care
Scratch my back and run your pretty
Fingers through my hair

You know I’ll be your slave
If you ask me to
But if you don’t behave
I’ll walk right out on you
If you want my love then take my advice
Treat me nice
If you really want my love then treat me nice

Trouble

(words & music by Leiber – Stoller)

If you’re looking for trouble
You came to the right place
If you’re looking for trouble
Just look right in my face
I was born standing up
And talking back
My daddy was a green-eyed mountain jack
Because I’m evil, my middle name is misery
Well I’m evil, so don?t you mess around with me
Ive never looked for trouble
But I’ve never ran
I dont take no orders
From no kind of man
I’m only made out
Of flesh, blood and bone
But if you’re gonna start a rumble
Don’t you try it on alone
Because Im evil, my middle name is misery
Well I’m evil, so don?t you mess around with me
I’m evil, evil, evil, as can be
I’m evil, evil, evil, as can be
So don’t mess around don?t mess around don?t mess around with me
I’m evil, I’m evil, evil, evil
So don’t mess around, don’t mess around with me
I’m evil, I tell you I’m evil
So don’t mess around with… me
Yeah

True Love

(words & music by Cole Porter)

Suntanned, windblown, honeymooners at last alone
Feeling far above par, oh how lucky we are
While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love
So, on and on it will always be
True love, true love
For you and I have a guardian angel on high
With nothing to do but to give to you
And to give to me love forever true

True Love Travels on a Gravel Road

(Words & music by Frazier – Owens)

How many girls choose cotton dress worlds
When they could have satins and lace
And stand by her man, never once letting shade touch her face
How many hearts could live through all the winters
We’ve known and still not be cold
True love travels on a gravel road.
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
All through streets paved with gold
For true love travels on a gravel road.
Down through the years we’ve had hard times and tears
But they only helped our love grow
And we’ll stay together no matter how strong the wind blows
Not once have I seen your blue eyes filled with envy
Or stray from the one that you hold
Oh true love travels on a gravel road.
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
All through streets paved with gold
For true love travels on a gravel road.
Yeah, true love travels on a gravel road. Mmmm
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.

Tryin’ to Get to You

(words & music by C. Singleton – R.M. McCoy)

I’ve been traveling over mountains
Even through the valleys, too
I’ve been traveling night and day
I’ve been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you.
Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true
I’ve been traveling night and day
I’ve been running all the way
baby, trying to get to you
When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us,
But they didn’t mean a thing.
I just had to reach you, baby,
In spite of all that I’ve been through.
I kept traveling night and day,
I kept running all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.
Well if I had to do it over
That’s exactly what I’d do,
I would travel night and day,
And I’d still run all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.
Well, there’s nothing that could hold me
Or that could keep me away from you
When your loving letter told me
That you really loved me true
Lord above me knows I love you
It was He who brought me through,
When my way was dark as night,
He would shine His brightest light,
When I was trying to get to you.

Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds

Words & Music Bob Nolan)

See them tumbling down
Pledging their love to the ground
Lonely but free I’ll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
Cares of the past are behind
No where to go, but I抣l find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
I know when night has gone
That a new world抯 born at dawn
I抣l keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
I know when night has gone
That a new world抯 born at dawn
I抣l keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus/ Nearer My God To Thee
(Words & music by Lemmel / Clarke)

/ (Words & music by Fuller / Adams / Mason)

Hmmm…..
And all the world go free
Now there’s a cross for everyone
And there’s a cross for me
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in his wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow
strangely dim
In the light of his wonderful face/ or glory and grace
Nearer my God thee
Nearer to thee
even though it be a cross
That raiseth me
Nearer my God to thee (this line should be) still all my song shall be
Nearer my God to thee
Nearer my God to thee
Nearer to thee

Twenty Days And Twenty Nights

Lyrics by Elvis Presley

I left my home up in the hill far behind me
I left my wife with unpaid bills, she can’t find me
I’m trying out the world for size, find that it’s not paradise, it’s lonely
Now for twenty days and twenty nights I’ve been alone
And that ain’t right without her
City ways are strange to me, I can’t make it
For it’s not like it ought to be, I can’t take it
Gotta face the truth one day, man can’t always run away from trouble
No, now for twenty days and twenty nights I’ve been a fool
And that ain’t right, without her
One day soon I’m going back, where she still minds me
And then out of line and off the track, but that’s behind me
I fooled around and did it well, but I just couldn’t ring the bell , without her, no
It’s taken twenty days and twenty nights to prove me wrong and make her right
Twenty days and twenty nights I was wrong and she was right, all along
Oh, I miss her
Oh, how I miss her, oh how I miss her, oh how I miss her
