    Written by: Aileen Mnich and Betty Jean Robinson

     

    Well look who's comin' through the door
    I think we've met somewhere before hello love hello love
    Where in the world have you been so long
    I've missed you so since you've been gone hello love hello love
    Make yourself feel right at home
    I hope you plan on staying long come in love come in love
    I must say I was sure surprised
    You're the last thing I expected by hello love hello love
    I've heard it said time and again you often go back where you've been
    I really didn't believe it was true but I left the door unlocked for you
    I'll try to please you in every way
    Assure you of a pleasant stay this time love this time love
    I've been so blue since you've been gone
    Now you're back with me and nothing's wrong hello love hello love

    I've heard it said
    And it's wonderful now you're back with me
    And things are like they used to be remember love remember love
    You're back with me now and my world's complete
    So don't mind me if I repeat hello love hello love hello love hello love

  • 03:51 Lyrics Sittin' on a Fence

    Written by: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger

     

    Since I was young I've been very hard to please
    And I don't know wrong from right
    But there is one thing I could never understand
    Some of the sick things that a girl does to a man, so

    I'm just sittin' on a fence
    You can say I got no sense
    Trying to make up my mind
    Really is too horrifying
    So I'm sittin on a fence

    All of my friends at school grew up and settled down
    And they mortgaged up their lives
    One things not said too much, but I think it's true
    They just get married 'cause there's nothing else to do, so

    I'm just sittin' on a fence
    You can say I got no sense
    Trying to make up my mind
    Really is too horrifying
    So I'm sittin on a fence

    I'm just sittin' on a fence
    You can say I got no sense
    Trying to make up my mind
    Really is too horrifying
    So I'm…

    Written by: Mark Brine
     
    Intro: If I could ease your bitter heart I would
    If I could ease your bitter heart
    1. Something that I did pulled you away
    ‘n God knows I regret it to this day
    But I .. still don’t know what I did
    Maybe someday, darlin’, you’ll forgive, but

    If I could ease your bitter heart I’d try
    ‘n I would heal that hurtin’ part that you hide
    ‘n maybe love again could start inside
    If I could ease your bitter heart

    Growing in your heart with each tomorrow
    So why can’t we just put it to an end
    Yes, ‘n darlin’.. maybe love could start again oh
    (Repeat CHORUS, tagging)

  • 03:21 Lyrics You ain't Feelin' with a full Deck (alt. take)
    Written by: Mark Brine

    1. Got a feelin' in my heart
    that you ain't feelin' with a full deck
    the way you keep me hangin' on
    just what else do you expect. 
    You ain't been givin' all the way
    'n I can feel your cold neglect
    And it hurts t' say it darlin’
    but you ain't feelin' with a full deck. 
    Chorus:  You ain't feelin' with a full deck
    You ain't been doin' your good man right
    Ain't feelin' with a full deck
    when you deal your cards at night
    You been puttin' your doin' off
    Ain't been checkin' up on what you should check
    'n baby I just can't help but think ...
    you ain't feelin' with a full deck
    2. Every night it's just the same
    I lay 'n count the ceiling cracks
    while you are fast asleep 'n dreamin'
    it's hard to talk to someone's back
    'n it just don't seem to get no better
    more 'n more it’s takin' affect. 
    'n day t' day I'm more convinced
    that you ain't feelin' with a full deck

    Written by: Mark Brine

    The last thing I want to hear from you is goodbye
    No, I don’t want to hear goodbye

    If you need my ear it’s (i’m) here anytime

    The last thing I want to hear are the words
    That would leave me without you wantin’ to die
    And the last thing I want to hear from you is goodbye
    Please don’t ever say goodbye
    2. As close as we are there are times we’ll get mad
    Over petty little things that could make us go bad
    But if they’re ever any deeper than the words we express
    I want you to know I’ll always give it my best ‘cause
    The last thing I want to hear from you is goodbye
    No, I don’t want to hear goodbye
    The last thing I want to hear from you is goodbye ... goodbye

  • 02:43 Lyrics Love just Doesn't feel right anymore (alt. take)
    Written by: Mark Brine

    You’re a pretty woman, you’ve got everything it takes
    But after losin’ her I guess I’m leery of mistakes
    So I’m gonna hit the highway, now don’t you look for no excuse
    I’m leaving while the knot of love’s still loose
    Chorus:
    ‘cause love just doesn’t feel right, I can’t dive back in for more
    After almost drowning I’m still headin’ for the shore
    So if there’s any problem it’s with me and nothin’ more
    Than love just doesn’t feel right anymore
    ‘cause once ya touch a fire and it burns your fingertips
    It don’t make it easier to risk relationships
    And after what I’ve just been through, I guess I’m just as sore
    ‘cause love just doesn’t feel right anymore

  • 03:34 Lyrics Backroads (Re-mix)
    Written by: Mark Brine
     
    1.I wandered down the back roads last nite
    Deep into the sleeping hands of time
    Back to the home that we once knew
    and I saw a fleeting glimpse (there) of you
    in your school uniform with your long blonde hair
    ‘n that tie you used to wear
    And we were pals once again
    In those few short moments lost in space
    And I remember feeling just so overwhelmed
    At simply seein' your little face
    And I ran my hand across your head (for good luck)
    Like I always used t' do way back then
    As you showed me your drawing of a truck
    And in that moment, the dream came to an end
    Chorus: 
    Back roads - back roads
    Down the back roads of (2.in) time
    Back roads - back roads
    Down the back roads of my (2.your) mind
    2. It’s sad how the paths of life just stray
    Fathers and sons how they go their separate ways
    Yes, I realize it’s all the Master's plan
    He molds you in His hands - you've become a full grown man
    But, I only hope that one day in your travels
    No matter where the road may go 'n how the tale unravels
    Yes, somewhere when you stop to look behind
    You'll know I'll always be there
    down the back roads of your mind

  • 03:54 Lyrics Fortunes (Alt. take)

    Written by: OLA BELLE REED


     There are FORTUNES in a life time
     All our money cannot buy
     Like the tiny little snowflake
     Slowly floating down from the sky
     There are wonders never ceasing
     Created by our Master's hand
     But the greatest of all our fortunes
     Its in God's promised land

     Chorus:


     Oh the rich man with all of his money
     All of his silver and all of his gold
     He can’t buy one breath of life
     Or a home for his weary (eternal) soul
     For that is bought and it is paid for (already)
     By the blood of the blessed Lamb
     Yes the greatest of all our fortunes
     Its in God's promised land

     

    There are fortunes in a teardrop
     There are fortunes in a smile
     In the face of a weary pilgrim
     Or the face of a little child
     There are fortunes right in your Bible
     If you'll read it well then you'll understand
     But the greatest of all our fortunes
     Its in God’s promised land

    1.With all the many songs that this world has to sing

  • 03:01 Lyrics Sweet Harmony

     

    Written by:  Johnny Irwin


    An old man stops his taxi.. somewhere near the Bowery
    then he stacks a lady's groceries.. on the backseat for a tip
    and as they wind around the clovers (corners).. she is staring at his picture
    and then he hears his whole life.. on her lips

    "Say, you once were big on T.V. .. your singing style was Country
    you were married to Sweet Harmony.. is she still living too?"
    Then she tears off some brown bag.. and she hands it up for signing..
    Sweet Harmony... I signed for me and you...

    Chorus 1:
    Sweet Harmony.. couldn't live with me... and watch me die a falling star
    She landed on El Paso sands.. She married some big business man..
    Sweet Harmony and me.. we fell apart

    I went down... in the Bowery.. just like a match dropped in whiskey
    'til the price of my performance.. couldn't settle at the bar
    then, I made one more record.. but, I heard the age and the whiskey
    and the sounds that were missing.. broke my heart

    Chorus 2:
    Sweet Harmony.. How you shined with me...
    Through flames of fame and golden youth
    and now I drive a Bowery cab.. and when I sign an autograph...

    Sweet Harmony... I cry for me and you

  • 02:35 Lyrics Blue Yodel #1 (T for Texas)

    Written by: Jimmie Rodgers

     

    T for Texas, T for Tennessee
    T for Thelma
    That gal made a wreck out of me.

    O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

    If you don't want me mama
    You sure don't have to stall
    If you don't want me mama
    You sure don't have to stall
    'Cause I can get more women
    Than a passenger train can haul.

    I'm gonna buy me a pistol
    Just as long as I'm tall, Lawd, Lawd
    I'm gonna buy me a pistol
    Just as long as I'm tall
    I'm gonna shoot poor Thelma
    Just to see her jump and fall.

    I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
    With a great long shiny barrel
    I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
    With a great long shiny barrel
    I'm gonna shoot that rounder
    That stole my gal.

    Rather drink muddy water
    Sleep in a hollow log
    Rather drink muddy water
    And sleep in a hollow log
    Than to be in Atlanta
    Treated like a dirty dog.

  • 03:22 Lyrics Little Buddy

    Written by: Hank Snow

     

    Broken hearted and so sad, golden curls all wet with tears,
    'twas a picture of sorrow to see.
    Kneeling close to the side of his pal and only pride,
    A little lad these words he told me.

    He was such a lovely doggie and to me he was such fun,
    but today as we played by the way
    A drunken man got mad at him because he barked in joy,
    He beat him and he's dying here today.

    Will you call the doctor please and tell him if he comes right now,
    he'll save my precious doggie 'cause I'll pray.
    Then he stroked the fluffy head but his little pal was dead,
    Just a shiver and he slowly passed away.

    4th and 5th verse are spoken

    He didn't know his dog had died, so I told him as he cried
    "Come with me son we'll get that doctor right away"
    "But I can't leave him here alone, I must get my doggie home
    So while you're gone I'll kneel beside him, sir and I'll pray."

    But when I returned he had his little pal upon his knee
    And the teardrops they were blinding his big blue eyes,
    "You're too late, sir my doggie's dead and no help can save him now
    But I'll meet my precious Buddy up in the sky."

    By a tiny narrow grave, where the willows sadly wave,
    are these words on a shingle of pine:
    "Little Buddy rest in peace, God will watch you thru' the years,
    'Cause I told Him in my prayers that you were mine."

  • 03:49 Lyrics He Wrote Our Names (Upon His Hands)
    Written by: Mark Brine
     
    He wrote our names upon His hands
    As He promised us so long ago
    That he would never ever forget us
    Wherever that He may go
    Indelibly, He had them placed there
    Like initials carved in a tree
    As a sign of love, ever-endearing
    Before we even ever came to be
    Yes, He knew each one of us
    Before the dawning of time
    That’s what He wrote in His word
    And in an act of total self denial
    He gave Himself that we might be assured
    Chorus:
    In a promise of old as the words they were told
    That He’d never forget or leave us out in the cold no-
    He wrote our names upon His hands
    Embedded right deep in His flesh
    With a show of love completely unequalled
    Not to mention it’s selflessness
    Yes, to right the wrong of one man’s crime
    That all thru Him might not fail
    Yes, He wrote our names upon His hands
    With a pair of rusty ole nails
