I'm Torn Down Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

I went to the river to jump in
My baby showed up and said, "I will tell you when"

Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

I love you babe with all my heart and soul,
love like mine will never grow old

Love you in the morning and in the evening too
Every time you leave me I get mad with you

I love you baby with all my might;
love like mine is out of sight
I'll lie for you if you want me to
I really don't believe that your love is true

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

How Blue Can You Get Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the first day that we met
I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the first day that we met
Your love ain't nothing but the blues
Woman, how blue can ya' get?

You're evil when I'm with ya'
And oh, you're jealous when we're apart
Good God, you're jealous when I'm with ya' honey
And you're evil when we're apart
Your love ain't nothing but the blues
Woman, how blue can ya', can ya' get?

Oh
You're evil when I'm with ya'

I bought you a brand new car
You said "I want a Cadillac"
I bought you a ten-dollar dinner
You said "Thank you for the snack"
I let you live in my penthouse
You said "That ain't nothing but a shack"
I gave you seven children
And now you wanna give 'em back!

Oh, I've been downhearted baby
Good God, I've been downhearted since we met
And listen, your love ain't nothing but the blues
Woman, how blue can ya' get?

Yeah, oh

Sugar Sweet Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

I'm gonna tell you about my baby
I speak of her with pride
She go all the way to make me satisfied
Oh she's my baby, she's my baby, don't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet

She manicure my nails, scratch dandruff from my head
She's my baby, she's my baby, don't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet

When I say what I want, that's the way it's gonna be
She fall over backwards to go right on pleasin' me
Oh she's my baby, she's my baby, can't you see
I can't call her sugar 'cause sugar never was so sweet

Jambalaya Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we'll have good fun on the bayou

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Thibodeaux, Fontainbleau, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a fillet gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

The Weight Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

I pulled into Nazareth, I was feelin' about half past dead;
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.

Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "I gotta go, but m'friend can stick around."

Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"

Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rags, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."

Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

Catch a Cannonball, now, t'take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
To get back to Miss Annie, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

Mess O' Blues Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

I just got your letter baby
Too bad you can't come home
I swear I'm goin' crazy
Sittin' here all alone
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues

I ain't slept a wink since Sunday
I can't eat a thing all day
Every day is just blue Monday
Since you've been away
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues

Whoops there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace

I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues

Whoops there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace

I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues

Since you're gone I got a mess of blues
Since you're gone I got a mess of blues

It's Only Money Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

You don't believe in love
You don't believe in hatred
Put your money in the bank
It's the only way to save it

You try to make a buck
But you haven't made a penny
You need a little luck
But you know you won't get any

You don't believe in God
You don't believe in glory
You've got a brother in the clinic
Tells the same kind of story

If he had another life
He'd know what would be waiting
If he had another soul
He could sell it all to Satan

You don't believe in war
You don't believe in Jesus
Got a sister in New York
She knows how she pleases

Walking the streets
On the south side of the city
Trying to make ends meet
Isn't that a pity...for money

Like A Hurricane Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues
(originally by Neil Young)

Once I thought I saw you in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam I know thats who you are,
I saw your brown eyes turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
Theres calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

I am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream,
You could have been anyone to me.
Before that moment you touched my lips
That perfect feeling when time just slips
Away between us on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
Theres calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

You are just a dreamer, and I am just a dream.
You could have been anyone to me.
Before that moment you touched my lips
That perfect feeling when time just slips
Away between us on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
Theres calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

Sittin' On Top Of The World Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

One summer day, she went away
She gone and left me, she gone to stay
But now she gone, and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

Worked all the summer, and worked all the fall
I had to take my Christmas, in my overall
But now she gone, and I don't worry
Because I'm sitting on top of the world

Goin' down to the freight yard, just to meet a freight train
I'm gonna leave this town, well it's just got too hard
But now she gone, and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

One summer day, she went away
She gone and left me, she gone to stay
But now she gone, and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

Shake Rattle And Roll Lyrics

Artist : JEFF HEALEY BAND, THE
Album : Mess Of Blues

Get out of that bed an wash your face and hands (you don't hear me)
Get out of that bed and wash your face and hands (oh yeah)
You better get in that kitchen and make some noise with the pots and pans,
I believe to my soul you were wearing them nylon hose (oh yeah), [repeat]
You won't do right to save your natural soul.

Shake, rattle and roll (in the morning),
Shake, rattle and roll (in the evening),
Shake, rattle and roll (all night long),
Shake, rattle and roll,

You wont' do right to save your natural soul.
(Let me tell you honey),
I'm like a one eyed cat, peepin' in a sea food store, [repeat]
And I can look at you and tell, you don't love me no more.
Shake, rattle and roll [etc.]

I Guess Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

Mmm
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah
what's a girl to do?
do do do do do
na na na
do do do do do
na na

I met Joe through a friend of a friend
Tuesday at my show
That smile that voice
We made plans, I had no choice
Ben on the other hand
Cute as can be, but harder to read
We made plans to meet as well
This could get hectic
But what the hell

I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows
Put 'em together a perfect ten
You'd have Joseph's heart and brains like Ben
I Guess, One of you two's got to go

oh oh
na na na na na na
do do do do do
na na

Fun till someone gets hurt
I love the attention I hate all the work Slow Down, Keep it all straight
Did I call you his name at the end of our date?
Oh man it's tough but

I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows
Put 'em together a perfect ten
You'd have Joseph's heart and brains like Ben
I Guess

There's a first time for everything
It's the last time that I try this thing
I gotta get myself out of this mess
I guess
I gotta get myself out of this

I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows!
Put 'em together a perfect ten
He'd have Joseph's heart and brains like Ben

I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows
I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows

I Guess, One of you two's got to go
I'm makin' dinner for two and what if the other guy shows

Fell Right Into You Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

When I met you
In the rear view mirror
You were closer then it seemed
I was going through dark troubled times
No sign of light in my view –to love

When I met you at the movies –honey
You sat closer then a friend
What makes you sick
What makes you tick
What gets you up what brings you down
Who’s watching over you now

Each time you came around I felt a bit lighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you
Each time you came around I felt a bit brighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you
I'm into you

What I write you in this letter
are all the words that help me see that
You,
You make me so much better
All you do when we’re together!

Each time you came around I felt a bit lighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you
Each time you came around I felt a bit brighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you

I’m into
Yo-ou
Yo-ou-ou
Yo-ou
Yo-ou-ou

Each time you came around I felt a bit lighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you
Each time you came around I felt a bit brighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you

I do
I do
I do

I’ve been thinking’ about you in the middle of the night
How could something so wrong go so right.
I fell right In, into you.

I’ve been thinking’ about you in the middle of the night
How could something so wrong go so right.
I fell right in, into you.

Each time you came around I felt a bit lighter
Lost in a sense of something so right
I fell right in into you
I’m into you

Best Of Me Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

Yeah, yeah, yeah

You've got away of holding me
But you never hold me back, oh yeah
You've got away of pushing me
But you never push me off track

I was looking for someone
Someone to love me
Just as I am

I know someone who loves you
Sure as the stars need the night
I know someone who loves you
Darling when you see me
Do you notice
You've got the best of me

When we're alone you dance with me
No one else can move me like that
You say that you'd give me everything
But I would give everything back

I was looking for someone
Someone to love me
Just as I am

I know someone who loves you
Sure as the stars need the night
I know someone who loves you
Darling when you see me
Do you notice
You've got the best of me

Don't ask me to stay
If I'm in your way
When love at first sight
Keeps you up all night

You've got a way of seeing me, oh
Just as I am

I know someone who loves you
Sure as the stars need the night
I know someone who loves you
Darling when you see me
Do you notice
You've got the best of me, yeah yeah yeah

Darling when you see me
Darling when you go
Darling when your with me
Darling don't you know

Darling when you wake-up
Darling when your home
Darling when you kiss me
Don't you ever go

Darling when your laughin'
Darling when you cry
Darling when your dreamin'
I'll be by your side
You've got the best of me

Lucky Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

I'm walking down this empty hall of photographs
I push my nose up to the ones I love
The long walk home to where I rest my weary head
I feel as if I'm happy in my cause

Funny me what was I thinking
Life is about to start
Cause I am

Lucky to be here
Yes I am lucky to care
Yes I am lucky to listen
And I am what I am
And your never gonna change me
I am what I am I am
But I do what I can
Oh yeah I do what I can

I rest my head between dissonance and harmony
I feel as if I've changed but stayed the same
The long walk home to where I rest my weary head
I feel as if I'm happy in my game

Funny me what was I thinking
Life is about to start
Cause I am

Lucky to be here
Yes I am lucky to care
Yes I am lucky to listen
And I am what I am
And your never gonna change me
I am what I am I am

And if I choose to lose my head
after all those foolish things that you said
I would never make it on my
on my
own

Cause I am lucky to be here
Yes I am lucky to care
Yes I am lucky to listen
Yes I am lucky to care

I'm lucky
I'm lucky to care
I'm lucky I'm lucky to care
I'm lucky I'm lucky to care
I'm lucky baby
I'm lucky to care

Falling Asleep (In Your Arms) Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

I'm a bit of a mess
I haven't got dressed for weeks
I've been cryin'
Since you left me
Now my drapes hang in dust
I haven't seen the sunlight
Then you show up
You show up
And I'm alright

And I hope
You don't mind
That I'm falling asleep in your arms

Nothing makes me feel better
Thank you for all that you do
We started with nothing
It turned into something
So how can you say
you feel nothing at all

I didn't want to think that this life could make sense
So packed up all my plans I decided to leave, Cause I
Couldn't look you in the heart
Thought I'd find a brand new start
Where did I ever think I go?

And I hope
You don't mind
That I'm falling asleep in your arms

Nothing makes me feel better
Thank you for all that you do
We started with nothing
It turned into something
So how can you say
you feel nothing

And why?
Did you leave without saying goodbye
You read me some Dylan
I know this wasn't forever
But why'd you leave without saying goodbye

Goodbye

oh yeah, oh yeah

Nothing makes me feel better
Thank-you for all that you do
We started with nothing
It turned into something
So how can you say
you feel nothing at all

Prettiest Things Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

Turn around
Turn around a little bit more
Look into my eyes, is it me or my disguise
I been up
I been up all nite
Why can't I see the truth, is it me or me with you

Say you'll love me forever
Will you hold my hand
Take a chance

The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you
The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you, yes they do

I didn't know when I first met love
I'd open up my heart, have it held and torn apart
Found out this whole darn thing is tough
It's not black and white
It takes work to get it right

Say you'll love me forever
Will you hold my hand
Take a chance

The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you
The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you, back to you

Don't waste my time falling in line
Don't waste my time Falling in line
Don't waste my time Falling in line
Don't waste my time falling in line

The prettiest things in my life make me love you more
The prettiest things in my life bring me back to you

I needed you back I didn't want you to go
Said I've been waiting so long to figure it out and here we go

The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you
The prettiest things in my life
They bring me back to you

Don't waste my time falling in line
Don't waste my time Falling in line
Don't waste my time Falling in line
Don't waste my time falling in line

I Am A Rock Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

I think I saw you in the mirror last night
A crooked haircut and an old night-light
I started thinkin' about way back when
I can't re-live it but I'll visit it now and then

Saw you talking to the stars last night
They're painted over but they shine so bright
Can't believe it how the time has flown
I'm still the same girl even though I've grown

We've come so far

I am a rock, a mountain
I stand tall
But sometimes I'm moved
I learn to take each day not to
Take too much
Not to give too much away

I saw you dancing in the rain last night
You sneak a smoke and then be home by midnight
I saw you walking in my shoes today
You're hard to follow but you turned out OK

We've come so far

I am a rock, a mountain
I stand tall
But sometimes I moved
I learn to take each day not to
Take too much
Not to give too much away

Sleep tight under painted stars
Cause while we're here we gotta laugh out loud and say
Who we were is still who we are

We've come so far

I think I saw you in the mirror last night
A crooked haircut and an old night-light
I started thinkin' about way back when
I can't re-live it but I'll visit it now and then

I am a rock, a mountain
I stand tall
But sometimes I'm moved
I learn to take each day not to
Take too much
Not to give too much away

I am a rock, a mountain
I stand tall
But sometimes I'm moved
I learn to take each day not to

Take too much
Not to give too much
Not take too much
Not to give too much
Not take too much
Not to give too much
Away

Coming Home (Jono's Song) Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Nothing Fancy

Ooo, ooo, ooo
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo

Sweet lovely are you coming home some day
Everybody misses you here
I called you up last night
Spoke your name into the night
Everybody wants you down here

And I know that you're free and safe
And with god they say you are
And nobody's gonna take your place
There's just a space

When the night falls down on the lake below
I will be waiting
When the Stars shine bright on the city tonight
I will be missing you

OOH
OOH
OOH

Sweet lovely every day I try my best to be strong
The truth is that I keep myself so busy
I forget that you're gone

And I know that you're free and safe
And with god they say you are
And nobody's gonna take your place
There's just a space

When the night falls down on the lake below
I will be waiting
When the Stars shine bright on the city tonight
I will be missing you

When the night falls down on the lake below
I will be waiting
When the Stars shine bright on the city tonight
I will be missing you

You're in every little thing I do

ooo, ooo, ooo

You Make Me Feel Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Good, Bad & Pretty Things

I had a penny
Bent down and laid it on the railroad tracks
My heart started poundin' boom boom boom
I never knew I could feel like that, yeah

Sat on a rooftop
Barefoot and dreamin' on a midnight sky
Watched shootin' stars goin' zoom zoom zoom
And I loved how I felt inside

[Chorus]
You make me feel like that each time you kiss me
My heart stops racin' like a car just missed me
Oh, it's the danger it's the rush
Takes you to the edge just close enough
It's like I'm flyin'
You make me feel like that

Bought me a ticket
Spent the night spinnin' on a carnival ride
Watchin' the world going round round round
Wanting to stay for the rest of my life

[Chorus]

Boom Boom Boom, Zoom Zoom Zoom, Round Round Round
Boom Boom Boom, Zoom Zoom Zoom, Round Round Round

[Chorus]

You make me feel like that
You make me feel like that
Oh yeah
You make me feel like that
Like that

Burn So Bright Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Good, Bad & Pretty Things

If your waiting for the perfect time
To try something you've never tried
Time will past you by
And you won't do it.

Save nothing for a rainy day
You blink and it will be too late
Why not start right now
And just get to it.

Shut out the voice inside your head
That says stay in the shadows

Burn so bright
That the dream you had inside lights up the night
Burn so bright
That the angels have to cover up their eyes
Dare to be bold
Dare to be great
Leave a little love all over the place
It's your life
Burn so bright

Why talk when you can sing out loud
Why hide when you can draw a crowd
You deserve a future with no limits
Take baby steps until you are done
Don't decide when all the fun
Put a memory in every minute

With every excuse you come up with
You'll miss a door that opens

Burn so bright
That the dream you had inside lights up the night
Burn so bright
That the angels have to cover up their eyes
Dare to be bold
Dare to be great
Leave a little love all over the place
It's your life
Burn so bright

Turn up that voice inside your head
That says your here for a reason

Burn so bright
That the dream you had inside
Lights up the night
Burn so bright
That the angels have to cover up their eyes
Dare to be bold
Dare to be great
Leave a little love all over the place
It's your life
Burn so bright
Burn so bright
Burn so bright

Nobody Says No Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Good, Bad & Pretty Things

I was a chubby little baby, my first word was no
I was singin’ country music when I was five years old
Wrote a song with words like kissing boys and beer
Sang it in the mirror and got my belly pierced
Nobody says no to me
Worked my way thru college serving drinks to drunks
Slept thru half the classes somehow I didn’t flunk
I shot down a boy for asking me to slow down, so I blew past him
I shake loose anything standing still

Nobody says no to me
Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it
I’ve always known there is no road
For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it

I got fired from selling things from bagels to bedding
That was just up in the way for where I was heading
I broke heels for climbing fences, running from creeps advances
That’s just another day in the life of me

Nobody says no to me
Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it
I’ve always known there is no road
For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it

I have always been a force, a bullet in a storm
I head right to it
I can’t ask for nothin’ more
My life’s an open door
I’m gonna walk right thru it

Nobody says no to me
Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it
I’ve always known there is no road
For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it, blaze it

Nobody says no to me
Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it
Nobody, no, no, nobody
Nobody’s gonna say no to me
Nobody, no, no, nobody
Hey, hey, hey
Nobody, no, no, nobody
Nobody’s gonna say no to me
Nobody, no, no, nobody
I dare ya.

Your Fantasy Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Good, Bad & Pretty Things

Oh oh la di da di da da da da
Oh oh oh la di da di da da da da

I'm gonna be your private dancer tonight
Sit back and let your baby take you to a new height
Forget the typical and come alive
Come'on baby we only got all night

So shut out the world
And shut off the light
And turn the music up
I wanna dance to ZZ Top
Until my top comes off
Shut out the world
And shut off the light
And keep the music on
I love you so much
And it's been too long

I wanna meet you in the dark
I wanna tease your beating heart
You say I'm everything you need
But tonight I wanna be
Your fantasy

Let me introduce you to
The girl of your dreams
She wearin' something that
Your hazel eyes have never seen
I get as all tangled up in the sheets
I'm feelin' restless and you know what that means
So shut out the world
And shut off the light
And turn the music up
I wanna dance to ZZ Top
Until my top comes off
Shut out the world
And shut off the light
And keep the music on
I love you so much
And it's been too long

I wanna meet you in the dark
I wanna tease your beating heart
You say I'm everything you need
But tonight I wanna be
Your fantasy
Your fantasy

I'm not make-believe
No I'm living
Breathing
Loving
Laughing
Private dancing fantasy

I wanna meet you in the dark
I wanna tease your beating heart
You say I'm everything you need
But tonight I wanna be
Your fantasy
In the dark
I wanna tease, I wanna tease your beating heart
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be you fantasy

Oh oh la di da di da da da da
Oh oh oh la di da di da da da da
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be

Turn You Down Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Love Letter

I used to hold on
To every word you'd say
And hold you up so high,
I was breaking my back
To keep you that way.
When your shine wore off,
There was nothing left
But your emptiness.

Yeah, I hear every word you say
But it doesn't mean I've been listenin'
You used to come in loud and clear
Now I'm far away and you're whisperin'

Stop steppin' on my heels,
Standin' on my feet,
You're weighin' me down.
Baby I can't turn you off,
But I can turn you down.

I used to tell you all
Of my darkest secrets.
You had me so convinced,
I was the only one,
You even fooled my instincts.
When your shine wore off,
There was nothing left
But your emptiness.

Yeah, I hear every word you say
But it doesn't mean I've been listenin'.
You used to come in loud and clear
Now I'm far away and you're whisperin'.

Stop steppin' on my heels,
Standin' on my feet,
You're weighin' me down.
Baby I can't turn you off,
But I can turn you down.

What you wanna show me
Always tryna hold me back,
It's too late, too late, too late.
You were talking so loud,
Then you got thrown out
Now it's too late, too late, too late.

Yeah, I hear every word you say
But it doesn't mean I've been listenin'.
You used to come in loud and clear
Now I'm far away and you're whisperin'.

Stop steppin' on my heels,
Standin' on my feet,
You're weighin' me down.
Baby I can't turn you off,
But I can turn you down.

No I can't turn you off,
But I can turn you down.
No I, I can't turn you off,
But I can turn you down.

Everything To Me Lyrics

Artist : JESSIE FARRELL
Album : Love Letter

If I wrote every single word down every single day
I might come close to telling you all the things I wanna say
The sky’s so full of stars tonight and this is all so real
I just want you to know this is how I feel

You’re everything I want and everything I need
You’re more than enough to satisfy me
You don’t have to give me anything else
You’re everything I want and need
You’re everything to me
Everything to me

Street lights come on when it’s dark out
And the air smells like rain ’cause the storm’s about to start
The way that the wind blows through the trees
And the way that I feel when you look at me

You’re everything I want and everything I need
You’re more than enough to satisfy me
You don’t have to give me anything else
You’re everything I want

I used to think that needing you meant I was weak
I can’t imagine life without you now and being complete
Loving you with every piece of me
Is a promise I will always keep

You’re everything I want and everything I need
You’re more than enough to satisfy me
You don’t have to give me anything else
You’re everything I want

You’re everything I want and everything I need
You’re more than enough to satisfy me
You don’t have to give me anything else
You’re everything I want and need
You’re everything to me
You’re everything to me
You’re everything to me
You’re everything to me

Who Got Our Love Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

Who got our love
I want to know
Who's having fun
In places we used to go

Who stole your heart
I want it back
I'm tired of livin
Without love in this old shack

I'm tellin' you babe
I've had enough
Without your kisses honey
It gets too rough

Who got our love

Who got the love
That I need so much
And who's feelin' all the pleasures
Of your touch
Who found the key
To open up your door
Who got the love
I'm lookin' for

Who got our love
I want it now
Maybe we could get it back together somehow
Who stole the flame
That burns so bright
It used to keep me warm
On the cold cold night

I'm tellin' you babe I've had enough
Without your kisses honey it's just too rough
Who got our love

Who got the love
That I need so much
And who's feelin' all the pleasures
Of your touch
Who found the key
To open up your door
who got the love
I'm lookin' for

Who got our love

Straight Tequila Night Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

If you really want to know
She comes here a lot
She just loves to hear the music and dance
K13 is her favorite song
If you play it you might have a chance
Tonight she's only sippin' white wine
She's friendly, and fun lovin'
Most of the time

But don't ask her on a straight tequila night
She'll start thinkin' about him, and she's ready to fight
Blames her broken heart on every man in sight
On a straight tequila night

Here's a glass of chablis, some quarters and change
Maybe you can turn her love life around
Then she won't need the salt or the lime anymore
To shoot that old memory down
Just remember her heart's on the mend
So if you ever come back to see her again

Don't ask her on a straight tequila night
She'll start thinkin' about him, and she's ready to fight
Blames her broken heart on every man in sight
On a straight tequila night

Don't ask her on a straight tequila night
She'll start thinkin' about him, and she's ready to fight
Blames her broken heart on every man in sight
On a straight tequila night

But don't ask her on a straight tequila night
She'll start thinkin' about him, and she's ready to fight
Blames her broken heart on every man in sight
On a straight tequila night

It's been years,
Since you said goodbye.
When you left,
You left a memory
I thought would never die.

It took time,
But I found someone,
Who made me forget.
Last night, I laid your memory to rest!

[Chorus:]
There was candle light,
Flowers, soft music and wine.
When I held her in my arms,
You didn't cross my mind.
she helped me bury,
A love that was dead.
Last night,I laid yer memory to rest!

We laughed and talked,
Til dawns early light.
And when she asked me
If I loved her,
I didn't think twice.
I slipped your ring off my finger,
Without one regret.
Last night, I laid your memory to rest!

There was candle light,
Flowers, soft music and wine.
When I held her in my arms,
You didn't cross my mind.
she helped me bury,
A love that was dead.
Last night, I laid yer memory to rest!

Last night, I laid your memory to rest!

Let Go Of The Stone Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

You shouldn't wade out in deep water
When you don't know how to swim
He told you it was over
And like a fool you followed him
Into a whirlpool of emotion
Spinning out of control
It's killing you, but you won't let him go

Let go of the stone
If you don't want to drown
In the sea of heartache
That's draggin' you down
It's pulling you under
And you keep hangin' on
If I'm ever gonna save you
Let go ot the stone

Oh don't you realize the danger
And the hurt you're headed for
Put your arms around me
And swim with me to shore
Just let go of theat ol' mem'ry
I know it's hard to do
But I'll be here
Holdin' on to you

Let go of the stone
If you don't want to drown
In the sea of heartache
That's draggin' you down
It's pulling you under
And you keep hangin' on
If I'm ever gonna save you
Let go ot the stone

Steamy Windows Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind
(originally by Tina Turner)

I was thinking about parking the other night
We was out on a back road
Me and my baby was just getting right
All our systems on overload
Radio blasting in the front seat
Turning out the music fine
We was snuggled up in the back seat
Making up for lost time

Steamy windows
Zero visibility
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

You can wine and dine with a man all night
With good intent
But there is something about
a confrontation on a back road
Breaks down the defense

Steamy windows
Zero visibility
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

Steamy windows
Ain't nobody can see
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

There's a sound outside the front door
And I know that's just the wind
And it makes him snuggle up
just a little bit closer
And start things happening again

Steamy windows
Ain't nobody can see
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

Steamy windows
Zero visibility
Steamy windows
Coming from the body heat

Steamy windows
Steamy windows
Steamy windows...

Hillbilly Hollywood Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

I can still remember my first guitar
Bright and shiny like a brand new car
Even took it with me when I went to school
And I practiced every day till I got real good

I learned every lick on the radio
From wabash cannon to go johnny go
I majored in rhythm with a minor in blues
Then I hit the road with my blue suede shoes

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand ole opry on on a saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
Hillbilly hollywood

I played some bars where you never wanna go
From oklahoma city down to tupelo
My ears would be ringing like an old fire bell
When Id lay me down in some cheap hotel

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand ole opry on a saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
Hillbilly hollywood

And I pray before too long
They will hear my song

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand ole opry on a saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
I dreamed grand old opry on a saturday night standing..
Hillbilly hollywood hillbilly hollywood hillbilly hollywood

Cold Day In Hell Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

Said that you'd love me forever love me till the rivers run dry
Said that we'd be together till the stars fell from the sras
We'll love each till hell freezes over and birds no longer fly
If I'm ever gonna wish on a fallen star tonight would be the good time to try

I guess we're gonna run out of bottom I can't find a bird in the skies
What never should happen is happening now
I just heard you tell me goodbye

[fiddle]

Don't need to see anybody I'm feeling too empty inside
The world's going crazy I'm feeling shaky I guess I need a good place to hide
I should have known better when you said you'd never hurt me or tell me a lie
Guess I'd better break out my old winter coat it's sure gettin' cold for July

I guess we're gonna run out of bottom...

If you were watchin' wherever you are the last of the stars as they fell
It's a cold day a cold day a cold day in hell

When It Comes To You Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

If we can't get along,
we aught to be apart,
and I'm wondering where'd you
get that cold cold heart.

Set me free.
Sign my release.
I'm tired of being a
villian of the peace.

You've been giving me bad times,
Tell me what'd I do.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey, when it comes to you.
Saying things that you didn't have to.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey when it comes to you.

You only get one life,
and this I know.
I want to get my licks
in now before I go.

Fire of love.
is dead and cold.
I got to satisfy
the hunger in my soul.

You been giving me bad times.
Tell me what'd I do.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey when it comes to you.
Saying things that you didn't have to.

If we can't get along.
we aught to be a part,
and I'm wondering where'd you
get that cold cold heart.

Set me free.
Sign my release.
I'm tired of being a
villian of the peace.

You been giving me bad times.
Tell me what'd I do.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey when it comes to you
Saying things that you didn't have to.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey when it comes to you.
How come I always get a hard time,
Honey when it comes to you.

Seminole Wind Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Seminole Wind

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They'd dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you're never gonna blow again.
I'm calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you're never gonna blow again.
I'm calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Money In The Bank Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

It's Friday night, baby, get ready, set, go.
Gonna take you to the Krystal and a picture show.
Well, the sky's the limit, there's no price too high,
Baby, you're the apple of my eye.
Got my paycheck in my pocket and some gas in the tank:
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank.

I wish I had a bass boat and a Z-28.
But I guess that stuff'll have to wait.
'Cause I'm saving on a washer and a wedding ring,
I want this love to be a lasting thing.
Right at the top, that's where you rank:
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank.

Oh, oh, you make me feel like a million bucks.
Oh, oh, I oughta drive you around in an armored truck.

Late last night, I had a crazy dream.
I met a man who invented a money machine.
He said: "I know things are tight and times are tough,"
But he'd give me the machine if I'd give you up.
I just looked him in the eye and I said: "No thanks."
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank.
Honey, your love's better than money in the bank.

I've Got It Made Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

A high dollar woman in a low cut dress
God never wanted me to have a woman like that I guess
A forty room mansion sitting high on a hill
I ain't ever lived in a place like that and I never will

But I've got the mornin' sun, I've got the evenin' breeze
I got the woman that I love lyin' close to me
I've got a few good friends and all my bills are paid
I got the moon and stars above and I've got it made

I don't need a gold mine or a long limousine
I'm not the kind of man to surrender my soul to material things
Just give me a cane pole and a shady spot to sit
To me that's about as close to heaven as a man can get

But I've got the mornin' sun, I've got the evenin' breeze
I got the woman that I love lyin' close to me
I've got a few good friends and all my bills are paid
I got the moon and stars above and I've got it made

I've got a few good friends and all my bills are paid
I got the moon and stars above and I've got it made
I got the moon and stars above and I've got it made

I Fell In The Water Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

I never seen a mircle before
I thought you were sent from heaven's door
But you knew all along you wouldn't stay
You left me here to drown in this heartache

I feel in the water
That you walked on
Up to my heart in misery
I can't believe you're gone
I thought you could do no wrong
Til I fell in the water
That you walked on.

I just had to get close enough to touch
Once I did I couldn't get enough
But you're no where near what you appear to be
Now I see the truth but I'm in to deep
Til

I feel in the water
That you walked on
Up to my heart in misery
I can't believe you're gone
I thought you could do no wrong
Til I fell in the water
That you walked on.

I feel in the water
That you walked on
Up to my heart in misery
I can't believe you're gone
I thought you could do no wrong
Til I fell in the water
That you walked on.

Bad Love Gone Good Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

My heart's walking on a thin line
A new love is coming on strong
There comes a time
When you just gotta move on

She never really understood me
She tried to take me for all I had
She left me with nothing but a heartache
A good love gone bad
But you loved me like she never could
It was a bad love, a bad love gone good

A bad moon's coming over my shoulder
A good love in the pale blue night
I'm holding on to you in a brand new light

I never knew what I was missing
Your love took me by surprise
Locked away inside her prison
Till you opened my eyes
But you loved me, like she never could
It was a bad love, bad love gone good

She never really understood me
She tried to take me for all I had
She left me with nothing but a heartache
A good love gone bad
But you loved me like she never could
It was a bad love, a bad love gone good

But you loved me like she never could
It was a bad love, a bad love gone good
A bad love gone good
A bad love gone good

All Things To All Things Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

You give us the sands on the desert; you give us the waves on the shore
We take what we please from the rivers and seas and still we keep asking for more
You give us the mountains and valleys; you give us the trees and the air
We saw and we burn and still we don't learn, and it seems that nobody cares
Are you the giver who longs for the gift that you bring?
How can you always be all things to all things?
You give us the seasons in order to nourish an build up the land
With a plow and a hoe, we make the seed grow, but still things get out of hand
You give us our animal brothers, the feather, the fur, and the fin
We trap and we train till so few remain; we swear we won't do that again
Are you the giver who longs for the gift that you bring?
How can you always be all things to all things?

Where I Came From Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

Country sun don't set on a big city skyline; it's another world altogether
City streets ain't no place to go huntin'; can't see the stars, can't read the weather
Where I come from, it's wide open spaces, hills and hollers, spirits running free
It's in your blood, just like the sun's up in the sky; where I come from, it's hard to leave
Brick and concrete just make alleys and gutters; Lord knows that's rocky ground for plowin'
City folks live stacked up on each other, and wake up to the sound of sirens
Where I come from, it's wide open spaces, hills and hollers, spirits running free
It's in your blood, just like the sun's up in the sky; where I come from, it's hard to leave
It's hard to leave.

I Wish I Could Have Been There Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

When our baby Kate was born it was the biggest day of my life
Lying there, little bows in her hair
In the loving arms of my wife
I was the proudest papa in the USA
Makin' a living on the road somewhere a thousand miles away

It was a happy day, but kinda' sad
And I wish I coulda' been there
Yea I wish I coulda' been there
I wish I coulda been there for that

Little Bobby hit his first home run
He was the hero of the home town crowd
Two to one, it was a winning run
Everybody was cheering loud
And mommy she was smilin' saying he's a chip off of the old block
But I was on the road somewhere between Memphis and Little Rock

It was a happy day but kinda' sad
And I wish I coulda' been there
Yea I wish I coulda' been there
I wish I coulda' been there for that

Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up
And moved away
They stay in touch
We're proud of the two good kids we raised
And it's hard to believe we are celebrating our twenty fifth year today
This party's nice but the kids aren't here
At least they called to say
Congratulations mom and dad

I wish we could have been there
I wish we could have been there
I wish we could have been there for that
It was a happy day, but kinda' sad
And I wish they could have been there
Yea I wish they could have been there
I wish they could have been there, for that

Nashville Tears Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

Bit it came a town and a cadillac to lot
With a song and he was born to sing
But is now we got a closer to the backstage of the opry
In a little writley part way burger king

Johny is the jealous of real blue collar board
Is written songs whatever star and tell
And no ones after listen no ones but ever low
Ten years a past and he still hanging out

[Chorus]
Nashville tears keep wedding up inside
It come down like falling rain across the years
That don't come her the river so deep at so wide
Is nothing more nothing less a Nashville tears

If we lost her bill before she sign the papers
Now she dids in the house six more is tour
Theres he only songs she sing is to the lord in sightment
And a lonely little room with cover walls

Here was it the superstar when he was young the best
The now hes out the side it out the line
Hes got a one way ticket if it wont be it the brance
It headin down the comber head tonight

[Chorus repeat 2]

That don't come her the river so deep at so wide
Is nothing more nothing less a Nashville tears

Can't Get Away From You Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

You said, "Don't come around knocking on my door"
I said, "I've had enough, I won't be back no more"
But here I am, I'm back again, just like the same old fool
It's like I'm hooked, caught in a trap, can't get away from you
And ev'ry night this empty bed reminds me
I toss and turn and can't sleep the whole night through
And early in the morning always finds me with you on my mind; can't get away from you
Honey, please consider me and take me back again
I want your love, I need it bad, a honey let me in
And ev'ry night this empty bed reminds me
I toss and turn and can't sleep the whole night through
And early in the morning always finds me with you on my mind; can't get away from you.

Solid Ground Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Solid Ground

A good Christian raising
a family foundation
Mom and Dad
who taught us right from wrong

Even through the hard times
we stayed close together
that's the solid ground
that made me strong

But there were places that I had to go
and things I had to find
I was looking for the answers
to the questions in my mind

But all of the answers
would be found on solid ground

For a while I wandered aimlessly
and couldn't see the way
I had to find out on my own
That the things that I was looking for
were things I left behind
Sometimes you never miss it till it's gone

Then a beacon from a lighthouse
led me safely to the shore
And I didn't have to worry
or be troubled anymore

'Cause I was finally
coming back around
On solid ground

The truths I learned
when I was young
have stood the test of time
All the rest have slowly washed away

I try to teach my children
the best way I know how
And hope that they're
on solid ground to stay

And the lessons I was taught
keep on ringing in my ears
Simple words of wisdom
I'll remember through the years

Yes now my feet are planted sound
On solid ground
Yes now my feet are finally planted sound
On solid ground.

Country 'Til I Die Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

I got an invite to a Saturday night
Shindig way up town
You know old John likes to have his fun
I couldn't turn a party down

The band was playing some highfalutin music
I'd never heard before
Everybody there seemed to like it a lot
But I was headed for the door

Then somebody had the nerve, to call in orderves
Like something from a real bad dream
On my dish was a little piece of fish
Some rice and three green peas

I've never had a taste for the social graces
The way some folks do
I've got problems, doctor can you solve 'em
Would you give me a clue

He said I can't treat a man in your condition
As he looked me in the eye
All I see, is John you'll be
Country 'til you die

Country 'til you die
Every bone in your body is countrified
It runs in the family, and you can say that with pride
It's in the way you look, the way you walk and talk
Down to the truck you drive
You're just gonna be country 'til you die

Yeah...
Country 'til you die
Every bone in your body is countrified
It runs in the family, and you can say that with pride
It's in the way you look, the way you walk and talk
Down to the truck you drive
You're just gonna be country 'til you die

Yeah, I'm just gonna be country 'til I die

Bend It Until It Breaks Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

I'm tired of havin' all these troubles, think I've had enough
Excuse me for sayin', but baby I'm callin' your bluff

There's been too many times, too many reasons
Too much cryin' out loud
Too much bein' just another face in your crowd

Oh, and I've heard it before time and time again
You say it's the last time but it never ends
How much more can this poor heart take
You bend it until it breaks

There's been too many cards, too many letters
Strangers sending flowers
Too much worry, and stayin' up lately for hours

It's plain to see you don't care about me
You spread it all around
I'm tired of bein' the joke and the talk of the town

Oh, and I've heard it before time and time again
You say it's the last time but it never ends
How much more can this poor heart take
You bend it until it breaks

Oh, and I've heard it before time and time again
You say it's the last time but it never ends
How much more can this poor heart take
You bend it until it breaks

The Real Deal Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

I kept putting it off like I always do
Had one clean sock but a man needs two
So I drove on down to the wash 'n wear
I swear it was a hundred and ten there

She was folding her clothes by the coke machine
Hottest thing I'd ever seen
Cotton dress clinging to her like a glove
It took all of a minute to fall in love

I'd a bet you a hundred that I'd never find
That one in a million
That one of a kind
I was standing still, spinning my wheels
When I came face to face with the real deal

You're gonna need some help, she said with a smile
Or, boy, you're gonna be here a while
If you pay for dinner we can call it square
I took her hand and we took it from there

I'd a bet you a hundred that I'd never find
That one in a million
That one of a kind
I was standing still, spinning my wheels
When I came face to face with the real deal

Love's gonna do what love's gonna do
You can't make love happen to you
I was lookin' too hard for love that true
The real deal came out of the blue

I'd a bet you a hundred that I'd never find
That one in a million
That one of a kind
I was standing still, spinning my wheels
When I came face to face with the real deal

Now I know how good it feels
To come face to face with the real deal

Keep Your Hands To Yourself Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die
(originally by The Georgia Satellites)

I got a little change in my pocket goin' jingle-ingle-ing.
Wanna call ya on the telephone--baby, give you a ring.
But each time we talk, I get the same old thing,
Always no huggy, no kissy till I get a weddin' ring.

My honey, my baby dont't keep my love upon no she
She says "Don't give me no lines and keep your hands to yourself.

Now baby, baby, baby why you wanna treat me this way?
You know I'm still your loverboy I still feel the same way.
That's when she told me the story 'bout free milk and a cow.
She says "No huggy, no kissy till I get a weddin' vow.

My honey, my baby dont't keep my love upon no shelf.
She says "Don't give me no lines and keep your hands to yourself.

Well I wanted her real bad, I was about to give in.
That's when she started talkin' about love, started talkin' about sin.
I said "Now honey I've been a waitin' for the rest of my life.
She says "No huggy, no kissy till you make me your wife.

My honey, my baby dont't keep my love upon no shelf.
She says "Don't give me no lines and keep your hands to yourself.

Mississippi Moon Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

It's a late night show on the radio
Going down the road with the Wolfman
Lightning bugs all around moonlight shining down
On little sleepy towns down in the flatlands

I can still hear momma calling son it's time to come on in
When the darkness started falling...
Everybody gathered round the table, amen

Mississippi Moon hangin in the haze wish I'd never left you
Spent enough time in that old rat race
Goin on back in the delta

Barbecues, back porch stews, and the guitar blues just about sundown
Mockingbird melodies, watermelon memories...
Cruisin the streets downtown

Hot summer night down on the levy
She spread the blanket on the ground
There ain't no feeling like the first time
When the innocence is lost and love is found

Mississippi Moon hangin in the haze almost reach and touch you
Been a long time and I missed your face
Goin on back to the delta

I'm tired of searching for the answers
Always out there on the run
I'm goin back to where my heart is...
Down on Highway 61

Mississippi Moon hangin in the haze almost reach and touch you
Been a long time and I missed your face
Goin on back to the delta

Mississippi Moon hangin in the haze wish I'd never left you
Had enough time in that old rat race
Goin on back to the delta

Album : Country 'Til I Die

When your lover lets you down and your heart is surely breakin'
Your head is in your hands and you think you're gonna cry
There's nothing you can do to make it any better
It's a feelin' you can't lose
It ain't pneumonia, it's the blues
When you're holed up in your room, don't want to see the sun a shining
You're thinking of the past and worried 'bout today
You want to be alone, but you need someone to hold you
You're taking pills and drinkin' booze
It ain't pneumonia, it's the blues
There's no one you can call
And there's no one a calling
You're feeling sorry for yourself and you can't cure your misery
Your body is aching, but you show no sign of fever
It's a feelin' you can't lose
It ain't pneumonia, it's the blues
When you're holed up in your room, don't want to see the sun a shining
You're thinking of the past and worried 'bout today
You want to be alone, but you need someone to hold you
You're taking pills and drinkin' booze
It ain't pneumonia, it's the blues
You're taking pills and drinkin' booze
It ain't pneumonia, it's the blues.

Where The Children Have Gone Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

Little girl playthings, stuffed toys and dolls,
little girl pictures hung on the walls, now they're just mem'ries gathering dust
Remember the time when they meant so much
Then she starts talking to boys on the phone
Where has the little girl gone? It's the miracle part of the overall plan
Girl becomes woman and boy becomes man
Then they fall in love and have kids of their own
That's where the children have gone
Old model trains and old fishing poles
Little league trophies and Lord only knows
Now in the closet, beginning to rust
Remember the time when they meant so much
Then he's off doing things on his own,
Where has the little boy gone?
It's the miracle part of the overall plan
Girl becomes woman and boy becomes man
Then they fall in love and have kids of their own
That's where the children have gone

Swingin' Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

There's a little girl in our neighborhood,
her name is Charlotte Johnson and she's really lookin' good.
I had to go and see her, so I called her on the phone.
I walked over to her house and this was going on:

Her brother was on the sofa, eatin' chocolate pie,
her Mama was in the kitchen cuttin' chicken up to fry.
Her daddy was in the backyard rollin' up a garden hose,
I was on the porch with Charlotte, feelin' love down to my toes...
and we were Swingin', yes we were Swingin'...
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing,
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just-a-swingin,

Yeah, and we'll be swingin, yes, we'll be swinging.
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in the swang,
Just-a-swangin.

Now Charlotte she's the darlin', she's the apple of my eye,
and when I'm on the swang with her it makes me almost high.
And Charlotte is my lover and she has been since the sprang,
I just can't believe it started on her front porch in this swang.

Just a swangin, well just a swangin,
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in the swang,
Just-a-swangin.

I said, Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in the swang,
Just-a-swangin.

Hillbilly With A Heartache Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Country 'Til I Die

Now he's a hard workin' easy goin' country boy he wouldn't harm a fly
Nadine down at the hair salon promised she would be his bride
He took it hard when she ran off with the beauty supply salesman
But that's how romance goes sometimes but Herschel don't understand
He'll play the same sad song on the old jukebox drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck sling gravel through the parking lot
You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bear or step on a copperhead snake
So if you cross his path you better beware been wounded by a woman
He's a hillbilly with a heartache

He was gonna buy her a modular home with no wax linoleum floors
Now his mama's worried cause he don't drop by to watch wrestling anymore
He just rides around with a loaded shotgun hanging in his rifle rack
If I was that smooth talkin' city boy I'd sure be watching my back
He'll play the same sad song...

Them big old arms that used to hold her tight cound bring about any man down
When a good ol' boy's been hurt real bad he just don't give a damn

[fiddle]

He'll play the same sad song...
Been wounded by a woman he's a hillbilly with a heartache

Somebody Slap Me Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

I've found a girl who's got her own money
She's so good lookin' that it ain't funny
She's got a Self-and-Beauty school diploma
A runnin' up to Miss Oklahoma
She looks uptown but she ain't really
She's into football she likes my chilli

Somebody slap me I said somebody slap me
Can't be this happy I said somebody slap me

I've found a girl who's sweeter than honey
She pets my dog and she likes my buddies
The kind of girl who ain't afraid of nothing
She's independent she does her own plumbing
Her daddy's rich but she don't let it show
She likes to fish she's got her own boat y'all

Somebody slap me...

She's got long blonde hair and her eyes are blue
She wants a husband but not any time soon y'all

Somebody slap me...
Somebody slap me...

South Moon Under Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

I've got a feeling coming over me
Being here close to you
It's a strong feeling like I never had before
I'm just a little bit nervous, and don't know what to do
It may seem strange but girl I'm wantin' it more

South moon under, it's a natural wonder
It makes lovers fall in love,
It can make you wanna laugh or cry
South moon under, it hits you like thunder

And girl I've got a feeling
There's a south moon under tonight
I've heard old folks talk about
The moon and stars and signs
But I never knew just how true it could be
Then, just out of nowhere and right before my eyes
I saw a light that made a believer out of me

South moon under, it's a natural wonder
It makes lovers fall in love,
It can make you wanna laugh or cry
South moon under, it hits you like thunder

South moon under, it's a natural wonder
It makes lovers fall in love,
It can make you wanna laugh or cry
South moon under, it hits you like thunder

Yeah, girl I've got a feeling
There's south moon under tonight

Sara Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

Some spend a lifetime searching for gold
Crossing the ocean, like in days of old
And now that I've found you I realize
That you are forever where my heart lies
From sunrise to sunset, oh Sara
You're as good as it can get, oh Sara
I keep my promise to come back someday
Oh Sara, never change
I miss the siesta and water so blue
I dream of the white sands and Sara, of you
In my heart there's a spirit like a fire it burns
Watch over our secret until I return
From sunrise to sunset, oh Sara
You're as good as it can get, oh Sara
I keep my promise to come back someday
Oh Sara, never change
From sunrise to sunset, oh Sara
You're as good as it can get, oh Sara
I keep my promise to come back someday
Oh Sara, never change
From sunrise to sunset, oh Sara
You're as good as it can get, oh Sara
I keep my promise to come back someday
Oh Sara, never change.

Brown Eyed Girl Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back
(originally by Van Morrison)

Hey where did we go days when the rains came
Down in the hollow playin' a new game
Laughin' and runnin' hey hey skippin' and jumpin'
In the misty morning fog oh our hearts are thumpin' and you
My brown eyed girl you my brown eyed girl

Whatever happened Tuesday is so slow
Goin' down the old man with a transistor radio
Standin' in the sunlight laughin' hidin' 'hind the rainbow's wall
Slippin' and a slidin' all off the waterfall with you
My brown eyed girl you my brown eyed girl
Do you remember when we used to sing

Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da la ti da

So hard to find my way now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day my how you have grown
Cast my memory back there Lord sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' about it
Laughin' and a runnin' behind the stadium with you
My brown eyed girl you my brown eyed girl
Do you remember when we used to sing

Sha la la la la...

Small Town Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

You can talk about the weather
Or the mayor's sister
You can talk about small talk
You can walk the city limits
In a matter of minutes
Talk about taking a walk
You can count the stars in the clear night sky
Or sit back and listen while the train rolls by
Hey it's a small town
They roll the sidewalks up
Come around sundown
Hey it's a small town
The place where we grew up
And still hang around
That rich young widow
Keeps talkin' to the preacher
Lord help their souls be saved
And Mr. Johnson's daughter
Flew in from Nevada
When they put him in his grave
Tommy took a summer job in Pontiac
He's still writing letters but he's not coming back
Hey it's a small town
They roll the sidewalks up
Come around sundown
Hey it's a small town
The place where we grew up
And still hang around
Hey it's a small town
They roll the sidewalks up
Come around sundown
Hey it's a small town
The place where we grew up
And still hang around
I'm easy to be found
Hey it's a small town.

Takin' The Country Back Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

Goin' down to Muscle Shoals where the swamp water rhythm flows
Live the only way I know I'm just a common man
Headed down to Texas way where the honky tonk heroes play
Gonna find that lost highway that's where I'll make a stand

Takin' the country back it's high time we face the facts
Heart and soul slippin' through the cracks we're takin' the country back
Takin' the country back we're not sure just where it's at
We've got to get it back on track we're takin' the country back
Bright lights and limousines fame and fortune I have seen
Still searchin' for that dream it's callin' me back home
Down to earth where the music's real singin' bout what the people feel
Timeless truth now that's the deal we got to pass in on y'all

Yeah takin' the country back...

Yeah takin' the country back...
Takin' the country on back

Album : Takin' The Country Back

Am I lover am I friend think it over is it me or him
Am I a fool or could I be wrong do I have a reason to keep hanging on
Who's who what's what will I be blue will he not
Please tell me girl I need to know what to do who's who

Are you certain or are you confused
Are you just being kind by not telling me we're through
Has he won your heart or do I have a chance
Lay it on the line let me know just where I stand

Who's who what's what will I be blue will he not...
What's what will I be blue will he not...
Who's who

The Fall Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

The days are gettin' colder the nights keep gettin' longer
The weather and the signs point to it all
Anyone can plainly see the writing on the wall
And me I'm gettin' ready for the fall

I can feel the changes coming down on me
This love affair has slowed down to a crawl
And baby's packed her pretty things in a suitcase down the hall
And me I'm gettin' ready for the fall

I better get my things together cause the winter will be cold
It's enough to make you break right down and bawl
And baby she's been busy making plans and making calls
And me I'm gettin' ready for the fall

I could see it comin' like a cold front movin' in
It's almost like I had a crystal ball
Lord I know the worst is coming the hardest part of all
And me I'm gettin' ready for the fall

I better get my things...
I said baby she's been busy making...

I Used To Love Her Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

How many years will this clock have to tick
How many tears have to fall
How many nights must I lie here and wonder
If I'm gonna survive this at all
Waking up and reaching out for no one
Is the hardest part to get over
I can't wait for the day when I can finally say
I used to love her
I'm gettin' better at walkin' the floor
I'm wearin' holes in my shoes
I keep on looking for something I've lost
As if I had something to lose
Calling out her name while nobody answers
Is the hardest part to get over
I can't wait for the day when I can finally say
I used to love her
This endless wall of heartache and pain
I can't seem to get over
I can't wait for the day when I can finally say
I used to love her
I can't wait for the day when I can finally say
I used to love her.

Jump On It Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

Granny's on the front porch spittin' in a cup
Tryin' to fix a nightgown that the dog tore up
Mama's old clothesline had finelly bit the dust
Brother got a broomstick and propped it back up
We could've had a dryer or a sewing machine
But daddy went and bought us a trampoline

And we jump on it every chance we get mama and daddy and all us kids
We ain't got much but we got this and we jump on it

And we jump on it every chance we get...

Daddy says life is such a crazy mess
He gotta jump on your chances for some happiness
We all see what daddy means from way up here on this trampoline

And we jump on it every chance we get...
And we jump on it every chance we get...

It's A Long Way Back Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Takin' The Country Back

First date, first kiss
Well I never will forget
The way you looked that night
Parked out, 'cross town
Watchin' the stars fall down
Girl your hair was soft and brown and
Just before we get too far I'd hear you say
It's gettin' late, we need to go
And it's a long way back
Made plans, got rings
And had us a million dreams
Where our road might lead
It wasn't long, we had a truck
With all of our things boxed up
Left town in a cloud of dust and
Got movin', improvin'
Why I can't say
But suddenly it seems to be
Such a long way back
I've tried, you've tried
And nobody's satisfied
Is this where it all ends
We can't be so far down
Where we can't turn around
Pick up this love we found
Just before we get too far
I hear you say
It's gettin' late, we need to go
And it's a long way
Just before we get too far
I here you say
It's gettin' late, we need to go
And it's a long way back.

Easy Money Lyrics

Artist : JOHN ANDERSON
Album : Easy Money

It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

I've heard some people say
John had some easy pay
You just party all night
Till the mornin' light
And then you sleep all day

Come on and ride with us
Step on that magic bus
We'll all just act like stars
Play the honky tonk bars
I'll show you why I say

It's a hard way
It's a hard, hard way
It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

Hey, son, I paid my dues
Worn out my cowboy shoes
Played these old guitar strings
Till I could make 'em sing
And learn to moan the blues, yeah Lord

I've seen the price of fame
Lost friends along the way
I've seen the stars burn out
And fall from the sky
While others fade away

Yeah, it's a hard way
It's a hard, hard way
It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

Now off to another town
Ain't no slowin' down
Sometimes it gets so deep
That I swear I might drown

Well, it's a hard way
It's a hard, hard way
It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

Hard way
It's a hard, hard way
It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

It's a hard way
It's a hard, hard way
It's a damn hard way
To make easy money

To make easy money
To make easy money
To make easy money
