LAST CHANCE TO DANCE

I see you across the floor and I
I just want to dance with you
But now you head toward the door and I
I just don't know what to do

'Cause you and your tight jeans waltzing
Right out of my life
And me with my bright dreams fading
At the end of the night And the band says . . .

This will be our last song 'cause we've
Played for you all we know
The clock on the wall is saying that it's
Time for us all to go

You don't have to go right home
But you can't stay here
So if there's a special person
You'd like to be near

Here's your last chance to dance for a while
Live those dreams go the whole country mile
If not now, then oh when will you start
Live those dreams that beat deep in your heart

Decided it's time to move so I
Got off my lazy chair
Decided it's time to groove to the
Last song that's playing here

I didn't look back once and I
I couldn't look down
I looked straight ahead then I heard
Then I heard a sound

The sound was my beating heart when I
I asked her to dance with me
And when she said yes I felt it was
My first day with new feet

But now that we're dancing I'm so
Happy I heard
If there's a special person
You'd like to be near

Here's your last chance to dance for a while
Live those dreams go the whole country mile
If not now, then oh when will you start
Live those dreams that beat deep in your heart

Now's your last chance to dance for a while
Live those dreams go the whole country mile
If not now, then oh when will you start
Live those dreams that beat deep in your heart

 

OLD TYME COUNTRY

I just threw my computer out the window

And dusted off my phonograph today

I took out my old records and I played them

'Cause old-time country music's here to stay

 

Now I don't mind that new stuff they've been playing

But it's George and Merle I'm HANKering for today

It's when I hear the old songs I feel younger

'Cause old-time country music's here to stay

 

Winters turn to summers then to spring

Years fly past and it's the same old thing

 

When I look back I have to wonder why

Where did they go those precious years gone by

But time stands still when I hear those songs play

'Cause old-time country music's here to stay

(guitar/steel solos)

Winters turn to summers then to spring

Years fly past and it's the same old thing

 

When I look back I have to wonder why

Where did they go those precious years gone by

But time stands still when I hear those songs play

'Cause old-time country music's here to stay

Yes old-time country music's here to stay

 

IF YOU SEE MY NEW FRIEND

We met the first time three years ago
She seemed afraid just to say hello
She said she'd never been with a man
So I was gentle and I held her hand

Then she told me she had to run
I whispered slowly "We've just begun"
She smiled and promised to be right back
It's been a year since I've seen her last

If you see, my new friend
Tell her I understand
And I'll wait, till she's here
One more year, one more year

We met again two years ago
I forgave her but had to know
Why she lied and what did she fear
She said she'd tell me in one more year

If you see, my new friend
Tell her I understand
And I'll wait, till she's here
One more year, one more year

We met last back a year ago
She made it clear why she had to go
Love is not always what it seems
My new friend's only in my dreams

If you see, my new friend
Tell her I understand
And I'll wait, till she's here
One more year, one more year

 

BEFORE I GO

The whistle blows
A baby cries
The sun comes up
I wash my eyes

The day begins
I'm filled with hope
And I thank God
You're by my side

I'm glad to be alive today
To share right now with you
The times like these make up our lives
This moment I love you

A flower blooms
The robins sing
I fill my cup
I toast to thee

You are my rose
No, not the thorn
The sweetest part
Why I was born

I don't look back
Or look ahead
I don't think twice
Of could 'ave been

I only know
I love you so
Thought you should know
Before I go

 

IN FROM THE RAIN

I run, but I run out of space

What's to be in my own human race?

Its light is a flickering flame

Let love bring us in from the rain

 

Change, yea the times they change

We just try to get by and arrange

Our lives, as we hide from the pain

But love brings us in from the rain

 

I seek, 'cause there's nowhere to hide

I reach out, everywhere but inside

To find, that some hope does remain

'Cause love brings us in from the rain

 

We fight for the right to survive

And we pray that our hope's kept alive

As good conquers evil again

And love brings us in from the rain

 

Someday planes will stay in the skies

No more flames bringing tears to our eyes

'Cause peace always wins over pain

As love brings us in from the rain

 

In time we'll be hopeful again

As love brings us in from the rain

 

 

HE THINKS EVERYTHING OF HER

If he could only find a way

If he could find the words to say

He thinks everything of her

And he needs to let her know, but how

Because she doesn't know he cares

They used to be the perfect pair

But time goes by and life's a rush

They didn't live and love enough

 

He wonders how she could ever love him now

And hopes she will forgive

The years that could a' been Can't get them back again

He tries to find a way

 

If he could only find the words

If he could heal all that was hurt

He still thinks everything of her

He still needs to let her know

And more than that he's got to show

By the way he lives each day

That he thinks everything of her

If he could only find the words to say

 

I think everything of you

I may not say it but I do

I'll try to show my love each day

Now that I have found the way

I think everything of you

I may not say it but I do

I'll try to show my love each day

Now that I have found the way to say

 

He thinks everything of her

He thinks everything of her

He thinks everything of her

 

MASSACHUSETTS COUNTRY

Well we'd walk a country mile just to see you smile
So we put together two words
They'll stick in your brain cause it sounds insane
They just don't go together I've heard

We're from up North but we love the songs
That those guys sing down South
No we're not from Texas and we don't have ex's
So when we open our mouths we sing

Massachusetts Country - I ain't ever heard those words
Massachusetts Country - Silliest words I've heard

Now you turn to the left and you turn to the right
Then back to center again
Step back step up now stomp with the right
Stomp left that's how you begin

When we figure out the rest of the dance
We'll be sure to let you know
Here in Massachusetts we just heard about country
So forgive us if we're slow

Massachusetts Country - I ain't ever heard those words
Massachusetts Country - Silliest words I've heard

Hey we love to play up New Hampshire way
Cause it makes us from the South
We don't travel far 'cause we just got cars
And we got routes (roots) instead of routes (rowts)

Massachusetts Country - I ain't ever heard those words
Massachusetts Country - Silliest words I've heard
Massachusetts Country - Music's what we play
Massachusetts Country - To our friends who are proud to say that they love Massachusetts Country

 

WORKIN' DAY BLUES

Well I'm packed up, jacked up, snacked up

And ready to roll

I'd rather sack down, skip town, turn 'round

And just stay at home

No time to snooze or lose those workin' day blues

 

I like work, that's fine, but it takes

All of my time

I work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

By Thursday I'm fried

Friday I choose to lose those workin' day blues

 

Out in the morning and back in the evening

There's no time for thinking and no time for breathin'

And then it starts all over again

No time to play at the end of the day

I got chores to do, more to do, no time to spend with you

Seems like it will never end

 

Until Friday night I'll be all right

I'll be out on the floor

Saturday night I'll dance a little bit more

To the band

 

Well now I'm dressed up, snapped up, tucked in

And ready to burn

I got my boots on, jeans on, feel strong

I dance it's my turn

Gone now that's the news those workin' day blues

 

(steel/guitar solos)

I DON'T NEED YOUR GOLD

No I won't be judged by the way I live my life
I'm workin' hard every day, I ain't lookin' for a fight
I don't need your gold just to prove or show
What I am worth

It's the world that sees everything that I can be
No matter what you say you just can't take that away
I'll accept my fate. It's the big mistake
That I won't see

I came up for my review they told me what I shouldn't do
Even though I was trying hard they didn't like my style
Said that things were slow, so they let me go
Go where? I asked

Then it hit me like a hammer in the middle of my head
If a window shuts down open up a door instead
I can work at home on my world-wide phone
And share with you

Maybe I'll just play guitar and like Johnny I'll go far
I'll start a rockin' country band and we'll play across the land
If you hear our sound come to your hometown
Stop by and say

Hey my hats off to you, when they told ya' you were through
Instead of lying down in bed you took that hammer to your head
Banged across the floor to an open door
And here you are

 

YOU'RE A LUCKY STAR*
*(will be on our next cd)

I was talking to my kids today

About learning right from wrong

It's what we try to teach our kids

While they are very young

 

They'll grow up soon enough to make

The choices good or bad

And we won't always be there to

Help them choose a path

 

So listen to the children and teach them good

I don't mean well, I mean good. And you tell them

Be kind, stay well and it's best if you

Choose a path that's honest and true

 

'Cause you're a lucky star

You know who you are

You know wrong from right

You shine through the night

Be like Superman

Do the best that you can

Always look both ways

Be kind everyday

 

The news was on I was with my kids

When some sad story broke

Another family torn apart

And living without hope

 

Every day you make a choice

Do good or do bad

Be the one who mends the fence

Don't make others sad

 

So listen to the children and teach them good

I don't mean well, I mean good. And you tell them

Be kind, stay well and it's best if you

Choose a path that's honest and true

 

'Cause you're a lucky star

You know who you are

You know wrong from right

You shine through the night

Be like Superman

Do the best that you can

Always look both ways

Be kind everyday

 

(guitar/steel solos)

 

I was talking to my kids today

About learning right from wrong

They're grown up now and thanked me for

Those words that made them strong

 

I guess I was wrong about one thing

With every little choice

Between doing good or doing bad

They said they'd heard my voice saying

 

You're a lucky star

You know who you are

You know wrong from right

You shine through the night

Be like Superman

Do the best that you can

Always look both ways

Be kind everyday

 

You're a lucky star

You know who you are

You know wrong from right

You shine through the night

Be like Superman

Do the best that you can

Always look both ways

Be kind everyday
