Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
There’s a song in your eye
As blue as the sky.
Just looking at you keeps me singing it.
There’s music and wine
That sparkle and shine.
One for your money and two to quit.

Every day it’s getting less hard to be
Never together but close sometimes.
Windows and rain, bluebirds and planes,
They’re never together but they’re close sometimes.

A girl in New York once captured my heart
But the winter was cold and I had to split.
Sweet Tennessee spoke softly to me.
I’m home when I’m home and I’m loving it.

Every day it’s getting less hard to be
Never together but close sometimes.
Windows and rain, bluebirds and planes,
Are never together but they’re close sometimes.

Life in these bars
With the make believe stars,
People and loneliness passing time.
A world full of fools
Sitting glued to their stools
Drowning in sadness and Rose wine.

And every day it’s getting less hard to be
Never together but close sometimes.
Windows and rain, bluebirds and planes,
Are never together but they’re close sometimes.

And every day it’s getting less hard to be
Never together but close sometimes.
Windows and rain, bluebirds and planes,
Are never together but they’re close sometimes.
Are never together but they’re close sometimes.

No Way Out Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Yes I really saw her,
What was I supposed to do?
Yes, she was my lover
Long before I knew you.

Love is a place you’ve been,
Ten million miles around.
When you fall a long way in,
Darling there’s no way out.

Yes she’s still as pretty,
Yes her eyes are that blue.
Yes there’s still a trace there
Of the feeling we knew.

Love is a place you’ve been,
Ten million miles around.
When you fall a long way in,
Darling there’s no way out.

Oh but how could you ever think
She could be anything more than old memories?
What about all our dreams
How can I make you be sure, sure about me,
Sure about these moments together
These nights that we’ve cried,
These roads to forever, these feelings inside?

When love is a place you’ve been,
Ten million miles around.
When you fall a long way in,
Darling there’s no way out.
When you fall a long way in,
Darling there’s no way out.

Beyond Those Years Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Full moons and empty promises
We were only high school kids
We got so close that we closed our eyes
To the facts of life.
We were married in the spring
Not long before the baby came
Your mama said she couldn't bare the shame
Your dad refused to give the bride away.

Beyond those years
Who'd have thought we'd still be standing here?
And that love would find it’s way
Through all those tears
Beyond those years.

Eighteen standing in the shoes of a man
The weight of the world in my unskilled hands
One by one as the dreams fell through
I took my failures out on you.
But you held on when it made no sense
And cleaned the face of the innocent
You were so strong to be so young
And now look just how far we've come.

Beyond those years
Who'd have thought we'd still be standing here?
And that love would find it’s way
Through all those tears
Beyond those years.

So many times we wanted to act our age
Call it off and go our separate ways
Against the odds we grew up too fast
And on our own, yer we made it last
Oo we made it last.

Beyond those years
Who'd have thought we'd still be standing here?
And that love would find it’s way
Through all those tears
Beyond those years.

Beyond those years
Who'd have thought we'd still be standing here?
And that love would find it’s way
Through all those tears
Beyond those years.

Beyond those years
Who'd have thought we'd still be standing here?
And that love would find it’s way
Through all those tears
Beyond those years. [fading]

Private Lives Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Another show is over, the lights go down
The loading ups begun
We sang a lot of country songs
We put our hearts in every single one.

We climb aboard our time machine
Tail lights disappear into the night,
No-one knows how many miles
Before we get back to private lives.

Like brothers we share memories
Brothers in the harmonies we sing.
As different as the clothes we wear
But like a family we share our name.
We all lay a dream or two aside for private lives.

Like the smoky mountain back roads
You know where our music’s coming from
Rolling, rolling, rolling.
Take it to the California sun.

Telephone, calling home
Pouring out our feelings on the line.
Oh I love you, I miss you too
Never losing touch with private lives.

Like brothers we share memories
Brothers in the harmonies we sing.
As different as the clothes we wear
But like a family we share our name.
We all lay a dream or two aside for private lives.
We all lay a dream or two aside for private lives.

Too Many Heartaches Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

The words I love you are no mystery to me
You’re not the first to dry your eyes.
There ain’t a heart that hasn’t hurt like yours and mine
Torn apart by promises and lies.

Yes love is easy but love is rarely true
It ain’t a lie that true love’s hard to find
So make me an offer, don’t feed me silly lies
No need for hesitation, no need for alibis.

Because too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

Sometimes I find myself just lying there in bed
Wondering how it’s gonna be this time.
Now if I had a dollar for every time I’d been misled
I’d surely be the richest man alive.
So if you’re looking for a restless heart like mine.
If promises of love are fair, let’s stop wasting time.

Too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

Too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

Too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

Too many heartaches caused by too many promises made by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.
Too many teardrops fall on too many pillows shed by
Too many lovers in the heat of the night.

Bridges And Walls Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Some friends you’d cry for
You, I would die for.
and I love you too much
to beg you to stay.
You have your own plans
But it makes my heart sad
Watching my best friend walking away.

Love’s never easy
And who knows what’s fair.
I guess I’m still feeling
What’s no longer there.
When hearts go to pieces
Love crumbles and falls,
Like stones made of memories
From bridges and walls.

Hope tomorrow brings good news
’Cause I’m sure gonna miss you.
If I look away now, please understand
’Cause my eyes refuse to see
Something I can’t believe.
The very best part of me, come to an end.

But love’s never easy
And who knows what’s fair.
I guess I’m still feeling
What’s no longer there.
When hearts go to pieces
Love crumbles and falls
Like stones made of memories
From bridges and walls.

Yer, like stones made of memories
From bridges and walls.

When Karen Comes Around Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
Thought I had my life together,
Things were going so fine
We encountered stormy weather
But we always found the sunshine.
I thought I’d covered everything
Everything that life could bring and more.
But I forgot to close one door.

When Karen comes around
I don’t know what to do.
I doubt everything I’ve found
My heart divides in two.
When Karen goes away
For me it’s never through.
My world turns upside down
When Karen comes around.

Did I plan too far ahead?
I don’t know, it’s hard to tell.
I made my choice, I made my bed
But lately I don’t sleep so well.
I really thought we had it all
Stone by stone I’d built a wall around you,
Oh but then out of the blue.

Karen comes around
And I don’t know what to do.
I doubt everything I’ve found
My heart divides in two.
When Karen goes away
For me it’s never through.
My wall comes tumbling down
When Karen comes around.

Karen comes around
And I don’t know what to do
I doubt everything I’ve found
My heart divides in two.
When Karen goes away
For me it’s never through.
My wall comes tumbling down
When Karen comes around.

Taking One Heartbeat (At A Time) Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Monongahela
As I look around on another day
Sometimes I get so mad seeing the same old game
So many people caught in hopeless situations
I can’t make much sense there’s too much information.
Someone’s always trying to run someone else’s life
Woh, someone’s only trying to make it through the night.

Putting one foot before the other
One step, then another
No map, no sign, taking one heartbeat at a time
It’s a long road in a short life
One foot’s on the other side
We look for love before we die
Taking one heartbeat at a time.

One thing I know, the only thing I’m sure of
There wouldn’t be much point without your love.
On this ship of fools, don’t know where we’re going
Most of what we’re told is not worth the knowing.
Someone’s always trying to sell a new version of the truth
After all the words have gone, all I still believe is you.

In putting one foot before the other
One step, then another
No map, no sign, taking one heartbeat at a time
It’s a long road in a short life
One foot’s on the other side
We look for love before we die
Taking one heartbeat at a time.

We’re putting one foot before the other
One step, then another
No map, no sign, taking one heartbeat at a time.
It’s a long road in a short life
One foot’s on the other side.
We look for love before we die
Taking one heartbeat at a time.
Woh wo woh no map, no sign, taking one heartbeat at a time
One heartbeat at a time
We look for love before we die [fading]

Cajun Girl Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
Serious blue eyes so pale and so shy
Look closer cause she’s got that look in her eye.
Red hair that sails on the soft southern breeze
Fingers that fly on accordion keys.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.

Cook Cajun, speak Creole and lay on the spice
Her fancy so free on these Saturday nights
She sing and she play at the parish hall dance
Big city chanteuses just don’t stand a chance.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.

You might find my dreams
Just west of New Orleans
If you pulled up that via Saint John
Where the twins fiddles play
And she squeeze on that squeezebox till dawn.
On that they carry on.

Tell long leg Lucille I must send my regrets
It’s nothing she’s done, it’s just someone I’ve met
With innocent heart, true talent so rare
She blooms on the bayou this flower so fair.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.
You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.

You might find my dreams
Just west of New Orleans
If you pole up that bayou Saint John
Where the twin fiddles play
And she squeeze on that squeezebox till dawn.
All night they carry on.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.

You ain’t seen nothing
Till you’ve seen my Cajun girl.
She’s really something
My sweet singing Cajun girl.

Baby, You'll Be My Baby Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
Daybreak pressing on the windowpane
No music playing no morning rain
Nothing but feelings leading me on
I'm just talking to you while you sleep in my arms.

[CHORUS:]
As long as I'm here on earth
Baby you'll be my baby.
All of my love’s in these simple words
Baby you'll be my baby
As long as I'm here on earth.

Life isn't perfect and never will be
It doesn't matter 'cause you're perfect for me
Through heartaches and mistakes, passion and pain
Down to my last breath I'll call your name.

[CHORUS]
Oh, baby you'll be my baby
As long as I'm here on earth.

Oh yes, listen to me now
Just as long as I’m living
Just as long as I’m living baby.
Are you listening to me now
Oh yer, just as long as I’m with you
Just as long, just as long oo, oo
Oh as I’m here on Earth, oh, oh,oh
Just as long as I'm with you.
Just as long, just as long oo, oo
Oh as I’m here on Earth,
Just as long as I'm with you.
Just as long as I'm with you baby
Oh listen to me when I’m saying something
Just as long as I'm with you
Just as long, just as long oo, oo, oo hoo
Oh yer, just as long as I’m with you.

American Family Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
Worked all his life in the rail yards
Summer heat winter cold
He sits by the fire,
This year he’ll retire
He don’t really feel all that old.
She comes in from the kitchen
And sits on the arm of his chair
He looks up and says “hey lady I love you”
Runs his fingers through her hair.

There’s a picture on the wall of Jesus in the garden
It’s been there since they got the house in ’53,
It ain’t no big deal, won’t ever go down in history
It’s just a little story of an American family.

She waited for him in World War 11
He fought the European campaign,
Their son John spent two years in “Nam
That war it wasn’t the same.
Billy’s out in L.A., he’s a lawyer now
They worry he’s so far away,
Jeannie got married, she lives here in town
They’re comin’ over with the kids today.

There’s a picture on the wall of Jesus in the garden
It’s been there since they got the house in ’53,
It ain’t no big deal, won’t ever go down in history
It’s just a little story of an American family.
It’s just a little story of an American family.

No Matter How High Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
When I was a young boy I would dream about life
And wonder just how sweet it would be
But baby I got lucky when I met you that night
Now you'll always have this promise from me.

No matter how high I get,
I'll always look up to you,
You’ll always be number one,
I'll settle for number two.
You've always been there for me
Baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you
No matter how high I get.

Up here on the mountain it gets crazy sometimes,
So crazy I don't know what to do.
When I've had it up to here with all of their lies
I can count on you to tell me the truth.

No matter how high I get,
I'll always look up to you,
You’ll always be number one,
I'll settle for number two.
You've always been there for me
Baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you
No matter how high I get.

You are the one that turned me around,
You help me keep my feet on the ground.

No matter how high I get,
I'll always look up to you,
You’ll always be number one,
I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me
Baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you
No matter how high.

No matter how high I get,
I'll always look up to you,
You’ll always be number one,
I'll settle for number two
You've always been there for me
Baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you
No matter how high.

No matter how high I get,
I'll always look up to you,
You’ll always be number one,
I'll settle for number two.
You've always been there for me
Baby, I must confess
I'll always look up to you
No matter how high I get.

If I Was To Start Crying Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
I sent you candy and a dozen roses
I put my heart into a card three pages long
And now here I sit waiting getting over that Moses
For the answer I’ve been fearing all along.

Now I knew there were wicked women in the city
Who scattered shattered dreams like fools gold on the ground
I just didn’t know that they would be so heartbreak pretty
Or that one single icy laugh could cut me down.

Because I’ve always tried to keep my pride
There’s one last desperation measure I haven’t tried.
If I was to start crying, show my innermost feelings
If I was to break down on my bended knees and just plead my case.

Would it thaw your frozen heart a little?
Would you show some compassion?
Would you only feel pity and then compelled to turn me away.
Would you only feel pity and turn me away.

My walls catch all my anger
Your satin perfumed pillows catch my tears
Oh how I wish tonight that I could be that stranger
Whose hearing all your same old lies through brand new ears.

Because I’ve always tried to keep my pride
There’s one last desperation measure I haven’t tried.
If I was to start crying, show my innermost feelings
If I was to break down on my bended knees and just plead my case.

Would it thaw your frozen heart a little?
Would you show some compassion?
Would you only feel pity and then compelled to turn me away.
Would you only feel pity and turn me away.
Would you only feel pity and send me on my way.

[Crying noises]

Turning For Home Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
The daylight hours are dying
The night is breaking clear
In the distance a boy and his daddy arrive
In a beat up old John Deere.
Supper’s on the table
Son quitting time is nigh
Set these wheels straight for the barn

It’s time that you and I are turning for home
Kick off these working shoes and rest these weary bones
The best part of any day is when the job is done
And you’re turning for home.

There’s a letter in the mailbox
From a soldier overseas.
His mother runs from the kitchen
She opens it up and reads
“Mum I hope this letter finds you well and strong
You and Dad and sister take care
I pray that it won’t be long.

Till I’m turning for home
Kick off these walking shoes and rest these weary bones
The best part of going no matter where you roam
Is the turning for home.

Now I have been a wanderer
On the wings of a restless wind
Fast trains and back roads
Places I’ve never been
I found every answer
When I fell in love with you
You took me straight to your heart
Oh the first time I knew

I was turning for home
Kick off these walking shoes and rest these weary bones
The best part of going no matter where you roam
Is the turning, turning, turning for home.

In My Own Crazy Way Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
The mystery of you and me
Is coloured blue on blue
We once said more than we could give
We couldn’t see it through.

You won’t believe these words from me
But still they’re mine to say
I will always love you
In my own crazy way.

I’ve tried to keep my sanity
By being someone else
Someone that you
Could hold on to
I only fooled myself.

I knew the part
But in my heart
The role I couldn’t play
But I will always love you
In my own crazy way.

I know I didn’t do the little things
That could make a woman’s heart sing
Forgive me.
Darling if I brought you any pain
I’m trying to explain
In my heart I was always true.

But memories of you and me
Are written on the wing
And sometimes girl
I’d give the world
To do it all again.

And if you need
To call on me
Woh, I won’t be far away
I will always love you
In my own crazy way.

Don't Give Up Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
When things get thin
You’ve got to give in
Just don’t give up.

Now in this world of give and take
One observation you can make
It’s a long hot road until the day you die
But you’ve got plenty on your side
You just take it all in stride
Don’t let the set backs hang you out to dry.

So you just listen here to me
One little problem don’t make three
Your obstacles don’t need a helping hand
If you just take one at a time
You’ll make it easier to climb
And scale that wall into the Promised Land.

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
When things get thin
You’ve got to give in
Just don’t give up.

Now you may say that I’m a fool
But I say patience is a tool
You’ve got to smell the smoke without fire
Good civil answers are the game
You’ve got no-one but you to blame.
Remember this when you’re down to the wire.

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
When things get thin
You’ve got to give in
Just don’t give up.

When you see that heavy cloud in front of you
Back off until you see it where the mountain meets the sky.
Recharge yourself until you know just what you’ve got to do
Then settle down with peddle down and fly.

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
When things get thin
You’ve got to give in
Just don’t give up.

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
When things get thin
You’ve got to give in
Just don’t give up.

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, don’t give up.
You’ve gotta know that time is on your side.
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Don’t give up, no, no.
Don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up,
Don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up.

Bed Of Roses Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
You’re that one special woman
I’d thought I’d never find
With a strength to be gentle
And the courage to be kind.
Though it hasn’t all been roses
I know you’ll understand
One of these nights when we’re sharing our dreams
I’m gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down on a bed of roses
In that peaceful shelter only love can provide.
I’ll lay you down on a bed of roses
And then I’ll lay me down right by your side.

There’s no diamond on your finger
Just a simple wedding band
Seems your knight in shining armour
Is just an ordinary man.
Though I promised you a kingdom
And we don’t have all we planned
One of these nights when we’re making believe
I’m gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down on a bed of roses
In that peaceful shelter only love can provide.
I’ll lay you down on a bed of roses
And then I’ll lay me down right by your side.
And then I’ll lay me down right by your side.

Voila An American Dream Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : American Dreams
Well they moved away from the farms they did not own
To live happily ever after on a G.I. loan.
The future was looking bright back in ‘52
‘Neath the shadow of atomic bombs and the baby boom.

You could take a walk downtown without being afraid
And hey, who’s the better centre fielder, Manual or Mace?
There was chicken in every pot even when times were lean
We thought everybody had a shot at the American dream.

Every mother was supposed to look like Donna Reed
Father knew what was best for you and me
Our lives were etched on 8mm frames
As we grew up in houses that all looked the same.

But there was trouble on the other side of town
It was a time when people began to stand their ground.
Arm in arm they stood as they cried “let freedom reign”
Everybody wanted the share the American dream.

Dream on children, dream on,
Don’t let anybody tell you the dream is gone.
As long as there’s a God above
Keep on praying we never wake up,
Keep on dreaming the American dream.

There’s medals on the wall I got back in ‘69
And the quarter acre piece of heaven I call mine
As I turn off the cable and put my babies to bed
I kiss them goodnight and whisper under my breath.

Dream on children, dream on
Don’t let anybody tell you the dream is gone.
As long as there’s a God above
Keep on praying we never wake up
Keep on dreaming the American dream.
Ooo, keep on dreaming the American dream.

It’s 5 o’clock and I’m heaven bound.
A hum, a hum a heh, a hum, a hum a heh,

When It Comes To You Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy, when it comes to you.
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy, over you.
I don't know why I love you baby, like I do.

When it comes to you I just ain't myself
What I might do next is hard to tell.
Ain't no stopping me, when it comes to you.

Don't care how long it might take me
I ain't giving up. [Steve]
I feel so strong about you baby
Gonna win your love [Joe]

When it comes you I just ain't myself
What I might do next is hard to tell.
Ain't no stopping me when it comes to you.

When it comes you I just ain't myself
What I might do next is hard to tell.
Ain't no stopping me when it comes to you.

I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you [Duanne]
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you. [Steve]
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you, yer, yer [Joe]
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you. [Richard]
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you.
I'm a little bit wild, a little bit crazy,
When it comes to you.

Change My Mind Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
I don’t want to lose you
But even a fool could see
Everyday your love is slipping
A little bit further away from me.
So I’ll be the one to say goodbye
Cause your heart’s already gone
Pack my bags and take the midnight train
Unless you say I’m wrong.

[CHORUS:]
Change my mind
Say you couldn’t live without me
Say you’re crazy about me
With a look, with a touch.
Change my mind
I’m looking in your eyes
For the love we left behind
It’s not too late to change my mind.

Something’s come between us
It’s not another lover
One night we just stopped
Trying to please each other.
So if it’s really over
Why can’t I walk away?
Tell me I’m making a big mistake
Beg me to stay.

[CHORUS:]
Give me half a reason
To give it one more try.
We could leave this leaving behind
Change my mind
Say you couldn’t live without me
Say you’re crazy about me
With a look (with a look), with a touch (with a touch)
Change my mind
I’m looking in your eyes
For the love we left behind
(It’s not too late) It’s not too late to change my mind.
O yer, o yer
Repeat last verse [fading]

Your Love Made Me Do This Way Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
I look high, I look low
Always searching for love
Well I try in my soul
But I just couldn’t give up.
Then one night it’ll be
I stepped into paradise
We just smiled so sweet
You put love into my life

[CHORUS:]
Now I’m so happy, feel like singing
Children laughing, bells are ringing
Feels like heaven, I’m in clover
Sweet as honey, candy over
Now you gave me the sunshine
Made it brighter each day.
So I’ll tell everybody that’ll listen to me
Your love made me this way.

Well each day when I rise
I start out thinking of you.
There’s no grey in my sky
It stays eternally blue.
When the star it don’t glow
I’m not alone in the dark
Then the sun will glow
That you put into my heart

[CHORUS]

Now you gave me the sunshine, made it brighter each day.
So I’ll tell everybody that’ll listen to me

[CHORUS]
Your love made me this way.

If I Were You Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
You’ve got it made; you’ve got real love.
Something you don’t find every day.
But you come and go, as free as the wind blows.
I wouldn’t settle down too soon.
If I were you.

If I were you, I’d be satisfied (I’d be satisfied)
Until the grass is greener on the other side.
If I were you, I’d stay by her side
I’d be running wild, I would never leave her
That’s what I would do, if I were you.

You’ve got it made; you’ve got no one
You don’t have no strings to tie you down.
Wow, but someone to trust, someone to lean on
That’s something I would hold on to
If I were you.

If I were you, I’d be satisfied (I’d be satisfied)
I’m sure the grass is greener on the other side.
If I were you, I’d stay by her side
I’d be running wild, I would never leave her
That’s what I would do, if I were you.

O ho, If I were you,
I’d know what I would do.
If I were in your shoes.

O ho, If I were you,
O, I’d be running wild.
But every night I’d be satisfied,
I wouldn’t change one single thing,
If I were you.

Walkin' After Midnight Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
I go out walking after midnight
In the moonlight, just like we used to do
I’m always walking after midnight
Searching for you.

I walk for miles along the highway
That is my way of being close to you
I go out walking after midnight
Searching for you.

I’ve got to see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow.
Maybe he’s crying for me.
And as the sky turns gloomy
Night winds whisper to me.
I’m lonesome as I can be.

I go out walking after midnight
In the starlight.
Just hoping you may be
Out there walking after midnight
Searching for me.

I’ve got to see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow.
Maybe he’s crying for me.
And as the sky turns gloomy
Night winds whisper to me.
I’m lonesome as I can be.

I go out walking after midnight
In the starlight
Just hoping you may be
Out there walking after midnight
Searching for me.

I go out walking after midnight
In the starlight
Just hoping you may be
Out there walking after midnight
Searching for me.

Lucky Moon Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
I was there in the very next room
She thought I was down the hall
She was talking on the phone like women do
She didn’t know I could hear at all.

I heard her say to her very best friend
He doesn’t love me like I did back then
She said lately I’ve been so alone
So tomorrow morning I’ll be gone.

[CHORUS:]
Lucky moon stay out tonight, sunlight stay away
I’ve got one more chance to make things right
We’ve gotta make her want to stay
It’s up to me and you, lucky moon.

Make reservations at her favourite restaurant
Candle light and expensive wine
Try to let her know that she’s the one that I want
Gotta show her while I’ve still got time.

I can’t believe how stupid I’ve been
God knows I love her like I did back then
Better take to heart her warning
Somehow change her mind by morning.

[CHORUS:]

The first star I see tonight
I wish I may, I pray she might
Find a little magic in the moonlight.

Lucky moon stay out tonight, sunlight stay away
I’ve got one more chance to make things right
We’ve gotta make her want to stay

[CHORUS:]

Lucky moon.
Lucky moon.

In A Tender Moment Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
5 o’clock this morning
The night is giving in.
I come home without warning
And quietly let myself in.
And as I watch you sleeping
I see the trace of a smile.
I know that I’m in your dreams somewhere
And that you still care.

[CHORUS:]
And in a tender moment like this
When all I can hear is you breathing.
In a tender moment like this
You know you’ve got me believing
That loving you is all there is.
In a tender moment like this.

Seven days that I’ve been away
Are seven too many for me,
But you know that I’ve got to play
It’s me they’re paying to see.
And as I watch you sleeping
You slowly open your eyes.
That crowd fades to a distant roar
And I’m home once more.

[CHORUS:]

All of my life I’ve been burning
With a fire that’s swept me alone
But how I would trade every song, every place
For this one moment alone.

[CHORUS:]

That loving you is all there is.
In a tender moment like this.

Love This Cat Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
A oump yer, a oump yer yer, a oump yer, aaaah
A oump yer, a oump yer yer, a oump yer, aaaah

[CHORUS:]
Yer, you got me itching babe
I’m scratching like a hound
Wagging your tail honey, all over town.
You tell me, roll over Rover
But I can’t go for that
Don’t you treat me like a dog, baby
Love this cat.

A oump yer, a oump yer yer, a oump yer, aaaah
Well each time I try to catch you babe
You turn on me.
You’ve got me howling at the moon
And barking up the wrong tree.
Why don’t you be my little kitten?
Curl up on my lap.
Don’t you treat me like a dog, baby
Love this cat.

Don’t you treat me like a dog
Waiting for his bone.
Don’t you put me on a lead
Then lead me on
You got me sitting all day,
I can’t get enough.
Well I’m a fool tomcat
This ain’t no puppy love.

Everybody knows that you’re a pedigree
They a come running when you whistle, baby
But not me.
No I won’t be your little munter
I wont run with that cat
Don’t you treat me like a dog, baby
Love this cat.

[CHORUS:]

Don’t you treat me like a dog, baby
Love this cat.

Baby On Board Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
Hey there mister in a Cadillac
Get off a my tail, get off a my back
Pull on round cause I ain’t gonna drive
Any faster than 55.
I’ve got a sign in the window buddy, can’t you read
Precious cargo sitting next to me.

[CHORUS:]
Ooooooo baby on board.
Everybody knows I take it kind a slow
With my baby on board.
I want the world to see
Who’s riding next to me.
Rocking in my old Ford
With my baby on board.

It’s hard enough to keep it on the road
She looks so good I’m about to lose control
God only knows the way she makes me feel
It’s all I can do to keep my hands on the wheel.
With my baby won’t you take a ride
I’ll make sure to keep her satisfied.

[CHORUS:]

Riding high, rolling down the street
I’ve got an angel here in my front seat.

I’ve got a sign in the window buddy, can’t you read
Precious cargo sitting next to me.

[CHORUS:]

I want the world to see
Whose riding next to me.
R r r rocking in my old Ford
With my baby on board.
I got my baby on board
I’ve got my baby, got my baby on board
I got my baby on board
I’ve got my baby, got my baby on board [to fade out]

Our Love Is Here To Stay Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Unstoppable
They all said our love was too long a shot
If we had listened to them we wouldn’t have what we’ve got.
I know we’ve struggled all the way
But we survived to say
Our love is here to stay

[CHORUS:]
Through the storms, through the nights
You and I held each other tight
Knowing the dawn was never far away.
Oh through it all we have found
Our love is standing on solid ground
It’s alive and well today
Our love is here to stay.

Baby looking back on where we’ve been
If I had the chance I’d do it all again
Bring on tomorrow come what may
There’s nothing we can’t face
Our love is here to stay.

[CHORUS]

Oh yer, oh through it all we have found
Our love is standing on solid ground
It’s alive and well today
Our love is here to stay.

Through the nights. through the night
You and I held each other tight
Knowing the dawn was never far away.
Oh through it all we have found
Our love is standing on solid ground
It’s alive and well today
Our love is here to stay.

Fall Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
You say you never fell before
But this time you must have slipped, now you know how it feels.
You say you've always watched your step
But this time you must have tripped and went head over heels.
Now you say it, your so good and you want me to fall too
What a crazy thing to ask someone you love to do.
No I'd rather not fall.

Fall leads a river wrong
And it pulls apart a mountain and throws him over the edge.
At first it feels real good
But he's half way down when he sees there's real trouble ahead.
Above the ragged rocks below, he wonders was it worth the thrill.
Cause if the fall don't do him in then the sudden stop surely will.
No I'd rather not fall.

Just let me slip into this slow and easy
I've got my sight set on the long, long haul.
I believe we're headed for the same place baby
Let's change this pace to a slow crawl
I'll walk in standing tall, but I'd rather not fall.

Fall takes a shooting star
And it burns into a streak of disappearing light
And when the darkness falls
It turns away the sun and leaves us here in the night.
Steals the green from the trees
And paints them red and gold
Leaves them standing there in the winter air
With their branches bare and cold
No I'd rather not fall.

Just let me slip into this slow and easy
I've got my sight set on the long, long haul.
I believe we're headed for the same place baby
Let's change this pace to a slow crawl
I'll walk in standing tall, but I'd rather not fall.
No I'd rather not fall.
No I'd rather not fall.

Power Of Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the walls closing in on me
I never dreamed it would be like this.
When it’s all said and done
When you know that the only one
You have ever loved is gone
That’s how it really is.

[CHORUS:]
I felt the power of love
I thought that that’s all there was
There was nothing as strong as the ties that bind
Woh but I know I was wrong
Baby since you’re gone
I know that nothing
Nothing can touch you
Like the power of goodbye.

You used to make me feel like a man
You had me believing I was more than I am
There was power in those times we spent together
Wish I had known then what I know now
Wish I had seen it coming somehow
I would have risked my heart for the stormy weather.

[CHORUS:]

[CHORUS:]

I felt the power of love
I thought that that’s all there was
There was nothing as strong as the ties that bind
Woh but I know I was wrong [fading]

Where Can I Surrender Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
Ever one to run away, ever one to leave
Never one to hang around, never one to grieve.
If love turned into labour I would just resign
Working through the hard times never crossed my mind.

I’m guilty of entering and breaking hearts so dear
I’m guilty of unlawful flight and failing to appear
I’ve committed all the crimes of love, every felony
Now I have but one defence, to plead insanity.

O where can I surrender, I’m tired of being free
I want love to come and make a prisoner out of me
I’m a big offender, o love come capture me
Lock me in your velvet cell and throw away the key.

Events have come full circle now, I spend my nights alone
Where love was once so full and free, love has up and gone
If God should just see fit to send sweet love my way again
I’d die before I’d run away and be like I have been.

Oh where can I surrender, I’m tired of being free
I want love to come and make a prisoner out of me
I’m a big offender, o love come capture me
Lock me in your velvet cell and throw away the key.
Lock me in your velvet cell and throw away the key.

Standin' By The River Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
Now when me and Ginny were sweet sixteen
We’d go down to the river at night.
Take a brand new penny make a wish and then
Throw it into the river wide.
She would never tell me what she wished
I never told her mine, standin’ by the river.
We were standin’ by the river
Holding to each other
Dreamin’ bout the other side.

Well now we got married and we moved away
Had to leave the easy world behind
But we took whatever God carried our way
Made the best out of the hardest times
I would hold her in my arms at night
Dreamin’ of the times standin’ by the river.
We were standin’ by the river
Holding to each other
Dreamin’ bout the other side.

We were just like that old river
Saw a lot of things come and go
But the love we had for one another
Kept on flowing.

Now I’ve still got my Ginny, it’s been twelve years
And we’re back upon the riverbank
Gonna throw me a penny in the river again
Gonna say a little word of thanks.
God I hope her every wish came true
I know I got mine, standin’ by the river
We were standin’ by the river
Holding to each other
Dreamin’ bout the other side.
We were standin’ by the river
Holding to each other
Dreamin’ bout the other side.
Yer –
Standin’ by the river, Standin’ by the river,
Standin’ by the river.

Stay With Me Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
I, I want you to know
That I love you
A million times more
Than anyone that I’ve known before.
Cause you, you fill up my heart
You touch me and kindle a flame
That’s as bright as the stars
But I burn out if you ever go.

So stay with me, stay with me, stay
Tonight and the rest of my days.
I need you more than it shows
All of your body and soul.
You are the light of my life
You are the one thing that’s right
So let’s take it all of the way
Stay with me, stay with me, stay.

Tonight the light in your hair
Is soft as the wind
There’s a magical moon in the air
But it disappears the minute you’re gone.

So stay with me, stay with me, stay
Tonight and the rest of my days
I need you more than it shows
All of your body and soul
You are the light of my life
You are the one thing that’s right
So let’s take it all of the way
Stay with me, stay with me, stay.

So stay with me, stay with me, stay
Tonight and the rest of my days
I need you more than it shows
All of your body and soul
You are the light of my life
You are the one thing that’s right
So let’s take it all of the way
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay.

Come On Rain Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
Last night they fired the cannon on the courthouse lawn.
The whole town gathered at the square and we stayed there till dawn
Telling tales and singing songs and trying to work it out.
Rain prayers all saying Lord please help us through this drought.

[CHORUS:]
Sun beats down from a White House sky
Still no rain, come on rain
Hens laying eggs with fire inside
Still no rain, come on rain
Dust devil carried our fields away
Still no rain, come on rain
Cow gone dry and the mule gone lame
And there’s still no rain,
Still no rain, still no rain, still no rain.

You can walk across the river on the bone dry mud
What little waters left there might as well be our blood
After 80 years the Carter family just ran out of luck
We watch the dust cloud rising as they drive off in their truck.

Sun beats down from a White House sky
Still no rain, come on rain
Hens laying eggs with fire inside
Still no rain, come on rain
Dust has carried our fields away
Still no rain, come on rain
Cows gone dry and the mule gone lame
And there’s still no rain,
No not a cloud in sight, ain’t that a shame
There’s thunder in the night but still no rain.

[CHORUS:]

Still no rain, come on rain.
Still no rain, come on rain.
Still no rain, come on rain.

Gimme Some Of Your Love Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
Hmmm

[CHORUS:]
Gimme some of your love and I’ll give you some of mine
Gimme some of your love and I’ll give you some of mine
Gimme some of your love and I’ll give you some of mine
Gimme some of your love and I’ll give you some of mine

Well I brought a new car girl but didn’t I give you a ride
Well I had a little money, I did 9 – 5.
But when I asked you for your heart girl you started to laugh
I went and found somebody and now you want me back.
But you got to.

[CHORUS:]

When I asked you for a kiss girl you turned away
You kept putting me off babe – just one more day.
So I left you with ma and pa but you keep calling me
But if you want what I’ve got baby
You’ve got to give me what I need.

Fear Of The Flame Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
There’s a time that I recall
When I tried to give it all
And got burned by the flame
That I thought would keep me warm
So I promised myself then
That I’d never care again
And I would not forget that roses have thorns.

[CHORUS:]
Don’t go near the fire it will hurt you, it will burn you
Love and desire only lead to pain.
The heart that gives in becomes ashes in the wind
O but you came along and cured my fear of the flame.

I learned from your love
Just how wrong I was
When you came along
And carried all my fears away
So gentle and tender,
Cinder by cinder
I hardly remember the fool who used to say.

[CHORUS:]

With your love I know
Through your eyes I see
It’s a lonely, lonely heart
Who’d believe.

[CHORUS:]

[CHORUS:]

[CHORUS fading]

Something Worth Holding On To Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : The Long Haul
Silver and gold or precious stones don’t mean a thing.
Ah they’ll buy you a thrill
Or a mansion on a hill
But life won’t change.
It’s a hard one to call
But I measure it all
By the things I can’t afford to lose.

When it comes to your love
That’s something worth holding on to.
If you’re saying goodbye tell me what I can believe in,
Oh what a cost to be lost in a world you’re leaving.

When I search my soul and let everything go
But the things that are tried and true.
When it comes to your love
That’s something worth holding on to.

Tell me the truth
Does it matter to you
What happens to me now?
Don’t tell me you care
Then leave me here feeling so left out.
Cause you know I’ll hold on
Even after you’ve gone
I wont give up on you

When it comes to your love
That’s something worth holding on to.
If you’re saying goodbye tell me what I can believe in.
Oh what a cost to be lost in a world you’re leaving.

Life’s a hard one to call
But I measure it all
By the things I can’t afford to lose.

When it comes to your love
That’s something worth holding on to.
When it comes to your love
That’s something worth holding on to.

Last night I woke from a dream
Or maybe I was just imagining
I found myself whispering
Come to me, wow, come to me.
I guess I just fell apart
When I couldn’t feel you there in the dark
I wanted you then.

Until you’re back in my arms again.
Until you’re back in my arms again.

Oh darling if you were here
One by one I’d dry each tear
Oh all that you would hear
Until you walk through that door
And love is here like it was before
These missing you nights won’t end.

Until you’re back in my arms again.

Please say we made a mistake
And we are sharing the same heartbreak
Darling then I can hardly wait
Until you walk through that door
And love is here like it was before
These missing you nights won’t win.

Until you’re back in my arms again.
Baby, come back baby.
Until you’re back in my arms again.
Baby, come back baby.
Until you’re back in my arms again.
Baby, come back baby.
Until you’re back in my arms again.
Baby, come back baby.
Until you’re back in my arms again [fading]

This Crazy Love Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
It'll lead you on, it'll run you off
Hurt twice as long when you're double-crossed
It's hard to trust, this crazy love.
It's a breaking heart at the bitter end
Bouncing back just to fall again
It's winning big or losing touch.

Wo-oh, this crazy love
Wo-oh, this crazy love.

It gives and it takes when it's strong
Nothing takes its place when it's gone
First it's good news and then its good-bye
But the good is worth the tears that you cry.

It'll fly you high; it'll shoot you down
Toss you heart in the lost and found
It pays rough, this crazy love.
It's a game of hearts, the joker’s wild
A come on look or a tender smile
Can raise your hand or call your bluff.

Wo-oh, this crazy love
Wo-oh, this crazy love.

It'll lead you on, it'll run you off
Hurt twice as long when you're double-crossed
It's hard to trust, this crazy love.
It's a breaking heart at the bitter end
Bouncing back just to fall again
It's winning big or losing touch.

Wo-oh, this crazy love.
Wo-oh, this crazy love.
Wo-oh, this crazy love.
Wo-oh, this crazy love.
Wo-oh, this crazy love.
Wo-oh, this crazy love.

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
When you’re tempted just to let it slip away
Hold on, hold on.
When bitter words just get in the way
Hold on, be strong.

When you think you can’t hang in there anymore,
And you know that any second you’ll be storming out the door,
When you’ve vented all your anger
And there’s nothing left to say,
Don’t you know a little love can go a long, long way?

Pride will only lead to loneliness
Hold on, hold on.
You’d better learn how to forgive and to forget
Before she’s gone.

When you think you can’t hang in there anymore,
And you know that any second you’ll be storming out the door,
When you’ve vented all your anger
And there’s nothing left to say,
Don’t you know a little love can go a long, long way?

There’s bound to be some heartaches
Love is never an easy road
Just give it all you’ve got
With all your heart and soul.
Don’t let misunderstandings stand in your way
There’s a river deep, there’s a river deep
A little love is all you need.

And when you think you can’t hang in there anymore
And you know that any second you’ll be storming out the door
When you’ve vented all your anger
And there’s nothing left to say
Don’t you know a little love can go a long, long way.
Once you’ve vented all your anger
And there’s nothing left to say
Don’t you know a little love can go a long, long way.

Don’t you know a little love can go a long, long way.

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
Here we are after all we’ve been
Acting like total strangers again,
Making small talk to avoid anything too familiar.
No more words, their not enough
On their self, that can say as much as my heart
When it knows what it wants and it wants you.

I never should have taken you for granted
I won’t make that same mistake again
Cause I’m ready now to give everything.

[CHORUS:]
Darling I, I’ll do whatever it takes
Break any walls in the way
That stands between you and me
I’ll lay my heart on the line
I’ll take the gamble this time
I’ll do whatever it takes.

To get you back.

Let’s cut through all of this red tape
Cast the doubts on your gorgeous face
To your eyes where I see there’s a willing surrender.
Wow, wow, yer,
You can’t hide the love you’re already feeling
You’re gonna have to let me in
There’s no way I’m gonna lose you again.

[CHORUS]
I’ll do whatever it takes,
I’ll do whatever it takes, yer, wow,
I’ll do whatever it takes, I’ll do whatever it takes.

Wow, wow, yer, I never should have taken you for granted
I won’t make that same mistake again
Cause I’m ready now to give everything.

[CHORUS]

I’ll do whatever it takes, I’ll do whatever it takes, [fading]

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
There were times we talked for hours
Of our love while summer flowers
Blossomed just outside the window where we lay.
Words of love came easy as the gentle evening breezes
Whispered that our love had lived another day.

Now the room is filled with hushes
As you move your silver brushes
From the dresser to the suitcase on the bed.
A stony wall of silence
Separates us into islands
Filled with echoes of the angry words we said.

[CHORUS:]
It was just a lover’s quarrel
And it just got out of hand
The fury of a woman
Met the anger of a man
We spoke the two so bitterly that it turned into a lie
Is this any way for us to say goodbye?

We each demanded justice
Now the outline of the dusk
Is all that’s left where once your ivory mirror lay
Both hell bent for survival
Of our pride, love cannot rival
When the battle ends will anything be saved?

[CHORUS:]

[CHORUS:]
Is this anyway for us to say goodbye?

Where The Fast Lane Ends Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
There's a peaceful place
That I swear I've seen
In a photograph
In all my dreams.
Just waiting there
Just around the bend
Can't wait to get to
Where the fast lane ends.

Where the fast lane ends
Where the fast lane ends
I'm getting off there
Where the fast lane ends.

It's just a little way
I've got to go till then.
I can't wait to get to
Where the fast lane ends.

Working overtime
Trying to kill myself
On the outside blind
Chasing fame and wealth.
I want to spend some time
With my laid back friends.
I'm gonna do that
Where the fast lane ends.

Where the fast lane ends
Where the fast lane ends
I'm pulling off there
Where the fast lane ends.

It's just a little way
I've got to go till then.
I can't wait to get to
Where the fast lane ends.

Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do do do-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

Where the fast lane ends,
Where the fast lane ends
Where the fast lane ends,
Where the fast lane ends
I'm going back to
Where the fast lane ends.

I'm gonna spend some time,
Gonna spend some time
With my long lost friends
with my long lost friends
I'm gonna do that
Where the fast lane ends.

Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do do do-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
Sometimes we're friends
Sometimes we're strangers
And though there are tears
There's always love.
It hurts when you cry
From words thrown in anger
Warm feelings run deep
But that's not enough.

It takes a little rain
To make love grow
It's the heartache and the pain
That makes the real heart show.
Where the sun always shines
There's a desert below.
It takes a little rain
To make love grow.

Hearts disagree
Then they grow closer
Honesty wins
When it's someone you trust.
Forever takes time
True love is never over
It's filled with new starts
Just look at us.

It takes a little rain
To make love grow
It's the heartache and the pain
That makes the real heart show.
Where the sun always shines
There's a desert below.
It takes a little rain
To make love grow.

Looking For Love Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
Alright, mm, mm

Always been the things you wanted
Even though I try to tell you
You never seem to see my point of view
Now it’s time to say goodbye
See the things that I’ve been missing
I hope I find what I’ve been searching for.

[CHORUS:]
Looking for love, looking for love,
Looking for love, looking for love,
Looking for love, looking for love,
Looking for love, looking for love.

Friday night and I’m off and running
Had enough of this so called loving
Heartache’s all you ever get from me
Heading down this two lane highway
I don’t know if you’ll ever find me
Time to look for love, where can it be? yer

[CHORUS]

Play it boys. woo

Now it’s time to say goodbye
See the things that I’ve been missing
I hope I find what I’ve been searching for.

[CHORUS]
Looking for love, looking for love.
Well I’m looking for love, looking for love.
Looking for love, looking for love. woo

Well I’m a looking for love, looking for love.
Just looking for love, looking for love.
Looking for love, looking for love,
Looking for love, looking for love,
Yes I’m a looking for love, o yer, looking for love,
Looking for love, o yer, looking for love,
Looking for love, looking for love, [fading]

A Little Late To Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
If your mind is set on leaving
I wish it could have happened years ago
Is there no better ending
Than breaking all the hearts that love you so.
Think of what your doing
Is your freedom worth the price we’ll have to pay.
After all the trying times you survived
Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye?

Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye
Start over in the middle of our lives
We’ll be turning years of love into a lie
Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye

You say you’re feeling trapped
Held back by a golden wedding band
Gotta make your move now
Cause time is slipping through your hands.
What happened to forever
Did it only last until you changed your mind?
We’ve been in love too long to let it die
Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye?

Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye?
Start over in the middle of our lives
We’ll be turning years of love into a lie
Don’t you think it’s a little late to say goodbye?

Rainbow At Midnight Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : This Crazy Love
Tonight love without warning
Stole right into this room
And amazed me like morning
Cause the night is far from over
But the light is shining through.

And there's a rainbow at midnight
And the faint glow won't loose
There's a rainbow at midnight
Shining all the way from here to you.

You can live life without dreaming
Or your dreams never come true
But to save me that worry
With a dream to keep believing
When the rest have fallen through

And there's a rainbow at midnight
And the faint glow won't loose
There's a rainbow at midnight
Shining all the way from here to you.

Heaven is saying
This time love won't leave you
Never be afraid or blue.

There's a rainbow at midnight
There's a faint glow won't loose
There's a rainbow at midnight
Shining all the way from here to you.

There's a rainbow at midnight
There's a faint glow won't loose
There's a rainbow at midnight
Shining all the way from here to you.

Y'all Come Back Saloon Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
She played tambourine with a silver jingle
and she must have known the word to at least a million tunes,
but the one most requested by the man she knew as cowboy
was the late night benediction at the y'all come back saloon.

In a voice soft and trembling,
she'd sing her song to cowboy as a smokey halo circled round her raven hair.
And all the fallen angels and pinball playing rounders
stopped the games that they'd been playing for the losers evening prayer.

Faded love and faded memories how they linger in her mind.
miles and years played the cowboy like and old melody out of tune and out of time.

Every night in the shadows thinking back on Amarillo,
he'd dream of better days and ask for faded love,
lifting high his glass in honor of the lady and her song,
he paid his check then lonely walked the broken cowboy home.

Faded love and faded memories how they linger in her mind.
miles and years played the cowboy like and old melody out of tune and out of time.
Faded love and faded memories how they linger in her mind.
miles and years played the cowboy like and old melody out of tune and out of time.

I'll Be True To You Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
They met upon a blue moon,
And they parted on a cloudy day
They were so in love and out of school,
But he was goin' so far, far away.

She said: "I'll be true to you,
"Even though you don't want me to.
"And I'll be blue for you,
"Even though you've asked me not to."

Well the year's drifted by them, as we all know they can.
He found other women, but she refused other men.
But as fate would have it, they met again,
She was on a down-hill slide, he was just slidin' in.

As he looked into her eyes that night, he never realized.
The only real love in his life was passin' by.
When he turned and left her there, his words: "Goodbye".
He heard her calling out to him, and as he walked, she cried:

"I've been true to you.
"Seems like speakin' to me is the least that you could do.
"And I've been blue for you,
"Even though you've asked me not to."

She'd been drinkin way too hard one night,
She'd been drinkin way too long.
Alone and pale in a cheap hotel, she died there in the dawn.
Kneelin' by the grave, oh so late and oh so wrong,
He longed to hold her close again, cryin' on and on.

He cried: "I'll be true to you.
"After all that I have put you through.
"And I'll be blue for you,
"Though you never even asked me to."

Old Time Family Blugrass Band Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
We catch our memories wandering through the past from time to time
As a mountain families’ music fills again inside our mind
We dream about Euganean Hills and West Virginian land
And an old time family blue grass band.

Our God fearing mum and daddy raised us young ‘uns on a song
By the banks where old new river gently sways and rolled along
Where once upon a time there dwelled a close knit mountain clan
An old time family blue grass band.

You never heard the like of melodies our family played
The guitar kept the rhythm as the fiddle sawed away
We recall a banjo ringing and a singing mandolin
In an old time family blue grass band.

Daddy slapped the upright, mamma strummed the other part
We couldn’t read the music we just played it all by heart
Lord hallowed songs just flowed across that fertile mountain land
In an old time family blue grass band.

I see us sitting round the porch on starry summer nights
I remember how the music made my world seem good and right
When all the folks would raise their happy voices and join in
With the old time family blue grass band.

You never heard the like of melodies our family played
The guitar kept the rhythm as the fiddle sawed away
We recall a banjo ringing and a singing mandolin
In an old time family blue grass band.
Yes an old time family blue grass band.

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
She sits there on her front porch every day at 4 o’clock
Waving at the traffic that runs up and down the block
Her face and hands are wrinkled and her grey hair almost shines
Over 50 years have come and gone since she was in her prime.

A high school girl in blue jeans stops each Thursday afternoon
They talk about life and love and phases of the moon
She lets the girl try on her gown she’s kept for all these years
She talks about when she was young, her old eyes filled with tears.

Didn’t she really thrill them back in 1924
Young men fell in love with her
When she came through the door
Every dance was taken
Still they’d ask for just one more
Oh she stole their hearts away in 1924

She holds a photo album as she rocks there in her chair
Here’s the men she almost married – they all look so debonair
She remembers all the faces and the night each one proposed
It makes her feel so young again as her old eyes slowly close.

The papers never said much when the old maid passed away
For the man who drove the moving-van it was just another day
The florist never understood when the young girl left the store
Just why she sent a wreath that said from the class of ’24.

Didn’t she really thrill them back in 1924
Young men fell in love with her
When she came through the door
Every dance was taken
Still they’d ask for just one more
Oh she stole their hearts away in 1924.

Didn’t she really thrill them back in 1924
Young men fell in love with her
When she came through the door
Every dance was taken
Still they’d ask for just one more
Oh she stole their hearts away in 1924.

Old Time Lovin' Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
Give me that old time lovin’
Like we was in love again-in
Yes that old time lovin’
Make it never ending
Give me that old time, good time lovin’ we once knew
I want that old time love again with you.

Love was sweet, love was ripe
We’d rush home every night
Life was like a flower in full bloom
Little house, no one cared
There were good times to be shared
Even though the place just had three rooms
And there was hardly a whole night that we slept through
How I want that old time love again with you.

Give me that old time lovin’
Like we was in love again-in
Yes that old time lovin’
Make it never ending
Give me that old time, good time lovin’ we once knew
I want that old time love again with you.

Times were hard but we had fun
When the old car wouldn’t run
We thought of better things to do
Love was sweet, love was ripe
Let’s bring it back tonight
Let’s make that old time lovin’ seem brand new
It’s the only kind of lovin’ that will do
How I want that old time love again with you.

Give me that old time lovin’
Like we was in love again-in
Yes that old time lovin’
Make it never ending
Give me that old time, good time lovin’ we once knew
I want that old time love again with you.

Give me that old time lovin’
Like we was in love again-in
Yes that old time lovin’
Make it never ending
Give me that old time, good time lovin’ we once knew
I want that old time love again with you.

Give me that old time lovin’
Like we was in love again-in
Yes that old time lovin’
Make it never ending
Give me that old time, good time lovin’ we once knew
I want that old time love again with you.

Freckles Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
They’d all called her Freckles when summer was coming around
All the kids that were running and laughing and some turned to brown.
And I’d find her crying and hurt by the words that they said
And follow her home just trying to be her friend.

And I’d say Freckles you’re pretty,
There’s a rainbow on your face.
Do you want to know a secret?
None of them could take your place
Cause your different and special
And she’d hold my hand and sigh
And say I always want to see me through your eyes.

But summers just turned into winters and then into years
And slowly the smile of a woman replaced all her tears,
And some how I knew in a while that my friend would be gone
As I watched a sad ugly duckling turn into a swan.

And I said Freckles you’re special
And she’d hold my hold and sigh
And say I always want to see me through your eyes.

But soon she was flying, dancing laughing and proud
And I took my place, a face alone in a crowd.
Knowing her lovers can’t see past her smooth golden skin
And that’s how I know that Freckles will come back again.

And I’ll say Freckles I love you
There’s a rainbow on your face.
Cause she’ll be smiling through her teardrops
As she runs to my embrace.
Freckles you’re special
And she’ll take my hand and sigh
And say I only want to see me through your eyes.
And I’ll say Freckles I love you
There’s a rainbow on your face
Cause she’ll be smiling through [fading]

You're The One Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
There is a time I have looked in the water
And had no reflection to show
And there is a time I have stood at the crossroads
Not knowing which way to go

There is a time someone laid close beside me
And I don't remember her name
The'll say that I'm just a smile and a moment
But that was before you came

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me

Now all of the others were places to go to
When I had no where to sleep
Well, I never made any promises to them
None they'd expect me to keep

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me

Well, You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me

Let Me Be The One Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
Many's the time I have looked in the water
And had no reflection to show.
Oh, and many's the time
I have stood at the crossroad
Not knowing which way to go.

Many's the time someone lay close beside me
And I don't remember her name.
They'll say that I'm just a smile at a moment
But that was before you came.

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me.

Now all of the others were places to go to
when I had nowhere to sleep.
Well I never made any promises to them
None they'd expect me to keep.

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million I see
You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me.

Well you're the one in a million

You're the one in a million
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in a million for me.

Easy Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
All the boys called her Easy
Took her to drive-in movies
And bragged about the good times they had
The girls talked about her
And had parties without her
And wondered why a girl would let herself go so bad.

They called her Easy, Easy
And laughed about how easy she was
They called her Easy, Easy
They said she was easy to love.

They didn't care if she was lonely
They didn't care if she was only reaching out
The only way she could
They didn't try to understand her
And this small town talk branded her
With names that said she wasn't any good.

They called her Easy, Easy
And laughed about how easy she was
They called her Easy, Easy
They said she was easy to love.

Easy's child came early
It seemed in such a hurry
For one who'd go through life without a name.
Easy's eyes were brighter
Than the moonlight on the water
When they handed her the child no one would claim.

My friends thought I was crazy
To love Easy and her baby
They said I was a fool, but I just smiled
'Cause love is what you make it
Any way you finally take it
It's the only thing that makes life worthwhile.

Now she's Easy, she’s Easy
And life is not as lonely as it was
Because she's Easy, she's Easy
She's so easy to love.
Now she's Easy, she’s Easy
And life is not as lonely as it was.

Emmylou Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : You're The One
Oh ho, Emmylou. Emmylou,
What in the world can I do?
Spend my life just trying to get close to you
Heaven is a girl named Emmylou.

Trailed you out to Houston
To a hotel downtown,
Followed you down the corridor
But you never turned around.
But one of your big old bodyguards
Suggested that I leave
He didn't seem to appreciate
the patch upon my sleeve.
That read
Oh. ho, Emmylou. Emmylou,
Just a fan who’s in love with you.
Spend most of my time trying to talk to you
Heaven is a girl named Emmylou.

I heard you went to LA
So I hitched myself a ride
California dreaming of me
Right there by your side.
Out at the Palomino Club
I watched you all night long
Until you looked right at me
In the words of your last song.
I asked you for your guitar pick
That’s all that I could say
Then the limo did appear
And took the queen away.

Oh ho, Emmylou. Emmylou,
What in the world can I do?
Spend my life just trying to get close to you
Heaven is a girl named Emmylou.
Well I love Olivia’s eyes
And Ronstadt‘s really nice
But heaven is a girl named Emmylou.

Colors Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Colors
Red as the bloodshed, blue as the wounded, white as the crosses on our soldier's graves.
Through the rain, through the sun, these colors never run.

I first saw her standing on the corner of the stage and I've been pledging my allegiance ever since.
We often take for granted her old familiar wave but that freedom cost a lot of brave young men and women.

It's one that's red as the bloodshed, blue as the wounded, white as the crosses on our soldier's graves.
Through the rain, through the sun, these colors never run. No they never will.

Now I've seen people treat her like she was some old rag, clueless to the human sacrifice.
But you'll always find a mother, a widow, a child, a sister or a brother with a carefully folded teardrop in their eyes.

It's one that's red as the bloodshed, blue as the wounded, white as the crosses on our soldier's graves.
Through the rain, through the sun, these colors never run. No, these colors never run.

American Beauty Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Colors
A '57 Chevy, red and white
American beauty
Levi blue jeans twistin' all night
American beauty

California girls, Rocky Mountain High
A Texas star in a cowboy's eyes
Shinin' like a diamond from sea to sea
American beauty, American beauty

A Zebco fishing pole fishin' downstream
American beauty
Strummin' on a '48 D-18
American beauty

Hot dogs, baseball, popcorn, football
A cheer for victory
NA SCAR race car number three
American beauty, American beauty

From north to south
From coast to coast
You can see it everywhere you go

Miles of wheat fields rolling to the skies
American beauty
Great white spaceship, enterprise
American beauty

Stampede of buffalo, sitting bull Geronimo
An eagle on wing
From Alabama with a banjo on my knee
American beauty, American beauty

She stands in the harbor in the city of dreams
American beauty
Prettiest face I've ever seen
American beauty

And she holds a torch and she won't let go
I love her with all my heart and soul
I'd give my life to keep her free
American beauty, American beauty
American beauty, American beauty

An American Family Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Colors
Worked all his life in the rail yards
Summer heat, winter cold
He sits by the fire, now he’s retired
But he don’t really feel all that old

She comes in from the kitchen
And sits on the arm of his chair
He looks up and says, “Hey, lady, I love you”
Runs his fingers through her hair

And there’s a picture on the wall of Jesus in the garden
It’s been there since they got the house in ’53
Hey, they ain’t no big deal whatever go down in history
It’s just a little story of an American family

She waited for him in World War two
He fought the European campaign
Their son John spent two years in Nam
That war it wasn’t the same

Billy’s out in L.A., he’s a lawyer now
They worry he's so far away
Jeannie got married and lives here in town
She's comin’ over with the kids today

And there’s a picture on the wall of Jesus in the garden
It’s been there since they got the house in ’53
Hey, there ain’t no big deal, whatever go down in history
It’s just a little story of an American family

But the whole world is different now
Blood's been spilled on our shores
In hard times we pull together
That's what a family's for

Hey, there ain’t no big deal
It's written in our history
We're all part of the story of an American family
We're all part of the story of an American family

Let It Ride Lyrics

Artist : OAK RIDGE BOYS, THE
Album : Colors
You cant sit around waiting
For your path to glory
You gotta get movin to
Tell your story
The bigger they come
The harder they fall
From the littlest acorns
To the trees so tall
But where your comin from
And where your goin'
Until you get there
There ain't no way of knowing

All the love in the world
Wont find you if you don't let it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride
All the mistakes are breaks
But only if you did it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride

Every day's a brand new day
Fell the sun upon your face

All the love in the world
Wont find you if you don't let it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride
All the mistakes are breaks
But only if you did it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride

All the love in the world
Wont find you if you don't let it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride
All the mistakes are breaks
But only if you did it
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride
Let it ride, Let it ride, Let it ride
Let it ride
