LYRICS:

Love gettin' "crazy" with you, baby
Love gettin' wild all the time
Love to get it goin'...now you got me knowin'
I'm lovin' that your lovin's all mine
Can't stop thinkin' 'bout you, baby
We're "crazy" and we' wild and it's true
Guess I always knew it...when it gets down to it
I love getting "crazy" with you

Love gettin' "crazy" in the mornin'
Love gettin' "crazy" in the night
And when we get it goin' you might as well be knowing
I'm lovin' that your lovin's all right
Can't stop thinkin' 'bout it, Baby
And all the "crazy" things we're goin' to do
Guess we always knew it...when it gets down to it
I love gettin' "crazy" with you

Chorus
Love to get it rockin'...love to get it rollin'...
Love to get it every time play!
Cause when we get it goin'...you know our love is showin'...
I love getting "crazy" every day!

Love to get it rockin'...love to get it rollin'...
Love to get it every time play!
Cause when we get it goin'...you know our love is showin'...
I love getting "crazy" every day!

Love gettin' "crazy" with you baby
Love to see that fire in your eyes
Temperature's a risin' guess there's no disguisin'
I love it that I'm feelin' so alive
Can't stop thinking 'bout us, baby
Whenever we're together...well, it's true
Guess we always knew it when it gets down to it
I love getting "crazy" with you!

LYRICS:

No one smiled and held me close this mornin'
No one softly sighed, and said she cared
And no one said she'd wait for me, when I came in from working late
And now, when I get home, nobody's there
I guess she always said I'd find out someday
Well now she's gone, I see the girl was right...when she said,
"No one makes it all alone...we're nobody without someone,"
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...

Chorus
'Cause everybody needs somebody sometime
It seems we spend our whole lives wishing love could work out right
But now too late, I know it's true, I guess she always knew it, too
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...somebody tonight...

No one's here...is someone there beside her...
And does he whisper, as he holds her tight...does he say
"I won't leave you all alone...we're nobody without someone,"
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...

Chorus
'Cause everybody needs somebody sometime
It seems we spend our whole lives wishing love could work out right
But now too late, I know it's true, I guess she always knew it, too
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...somebody tonight...

No one left her make-up out this mornin'
And no one used my razor...and my comb
And no one's askin' where I've been, when I'm out half the night, but then
Now, when I get back, nobody's home
If I could turn back time for just a minute
I'd whisper to her as I held her to me tight...that...and I'd say
"I won't leave you all alone...I'm nobody without someone,"
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...

Chorus
And everybody needs somebody sometime
It seems we spend our whole lives wishing love could work out right
But now too late, I know it's true, I guess she always knew it, too
Oh, Lord, I need to be somebody tonight...
Somebody tonight... somebody tonight... somebody tonight...

LYRICS:

Well, there's trouble, Baby, brewin' in the world tonight...I Don't Care
Transit union workers are about to strike...I Don't Care
Deficit's a-risin' and the dollar's down...I Don't Mind
Market's are a-droppin' up in New York town...I Feel Fine

Chorus
Cause when you hold me, Baby, well I feel the heat
The fire's ragin' from my head to my feet
Love me, Baby, all through the night
And you tell me everything is all right!

Now the television's talkin ' 'bout the latest alarm...I Don't Care
Aliens are landin' on a nearby farm...I Don't Care
Someone's spotted Elvis, and he looks real cool...I Don't Mind
The globe is warmin' up, now, but I'm not fool...I Feel Fine

Chorus & repeat
So just hold me, Baby, we can stand the heat
The fire's ragin' from our head to our feet
Love me, Baby, all through the night
And tell me everything is all right!

So just hold me, Baby, we can stand the heat
The fire's ragin' from our head to our feet
Love me, Baby, all through the night
And tell me everything is all right!

Well, the world is surely comin' Baby, to an end...I Don't Care
Oh, they talk about it night and day on CNN...I Don't Care
There's trouble brewin' somewhere, Baby, every night...I Don't Mind
But as long as we're together, Babe, we'll be all right...I Feel Fine

Have you seen the latest checkout counter news..Man!...Elvis is sure fillin' out...
And how do them aliens keep them saucers in the air anyhow...
I know one thing...I Don't Care...
Them dudes with their "global warming" ought to come & check out my heating oil bill...

LYRICS:

She gets up with the sun-up, gets the kids to school
Thinks about her day ahead, repeats "The Golden Rule"
But then she thinks about him, and for a little while
The lady's so in love...he makes her smile.

He gets up with the sun-up, another lonely day
Sometimes it seems all his plans and dreams got lost along the way
But then he thinks about her, and for a little while
The lady lights his life...she makes him smile.

Chorus
And it's just another day
Two hearts finding a way...forever
Leading lives alone...together...day after day.

She wonders as she holds him..."How'd it get this way?"
She takes his hand, she asks the man, "This time can you stay?"
But with the dawn he's leaving, and so she holds him tight
And they're reaching out for love, again, tonight.

Chorus
And it's just another day
Two hearts finding a way...forever
Leading lives alone...together...day after day.

He wonders as he holds her, why they're leading lives apart
A working man, a broken plan, a young girl's broken heart
He says they'll be together in just a little while
He leaves her with a kiss...a tear...a smile.

Chorus
And it's just another day
Two hearts finding a way...together
Leading lives alone forever...forever...day after day.

LYRICS:

Been out all night a walking, Babe, I haven't slept for days
I guess we both know it's coming to an end
I've wondered if you're coming home each time you've gone away
Now, I guess you won't be coming back again.

Chorus
And we never meant to hurt each other or to let the loving die
But Babe, we never worked to make it stay
So it's time to go, now, there's only time for one more last good-bye
And the love that's left when the hurting's gone away.

Oooh...the fights were endless, Babe, and oooh...our friends were right
They said you and I were never meant to be
But oooh!...the times you loved me softly somewhere in the night
Now I guess that shouldn't matter much to me.

Chorus
But someday, when they're about to lay this tired old body down
And the road I'm riding takes the final turn
I'll still remember, you're the best this poor heart ever found
I'll still love you more than you could ever learn.

Just one last chance to tell you, Babe, now one more thing to say
Then I'll pack my bags and head on out the door
For all our ups and downs, the feelings just won't fade away
And despite the pain, I couldn't love you more.

Chorus
And someday, when they're about to lay this tired old body down
And this old road has nowhere left to go
I'll still remember, you're the best this poor heart ever found
I'll still love you more than you could ever know.

LYRICS:

I know it's over, I know it's time
I know I'm no longer yours, and you're no longer mine
And your heart's set on leaving, and maybe it's time
But the heart that you break as you're leaving well, Baby, that's mine.

Chorus
So let me down easy, please let me down slow
Let me pretend that tomorrow you won't let me go.
Just stay for tonight, Babe...say it ain't so
Babe, won't you let me down easy, please let me down slow...

I know the sadness, these tears that I cry
They'll pass through the years, and I'll someday stop wondering why
But tonight it ain't easy to watch our love die
So for tonight, hold on tight to me darling, please don't say good-bye.

Chorus
And let me down easy, please let me down slow
Let me pretend that tomorrow you won't let me go
Cry me a river, sing me a song
Babe, won't you let me down easy, just string me along.

Chorus (Repeats)
Let me down easy, please let me down slow
Let me pretend that tomorrow you won't let me go
Just stay for tonight, Babe...and say it ain't so
Babe, won't you let me down easy, let me down slow...
Babe, won't you let me down easy, let me down slow...
Babe, won't you let me down easy...don't let me down.

LYRICS:

Wasn't I the one who was restless?
Wasn't I the one who had doubts?
And wasn't it me who was wild and free?
Wasn't I the one who walked out?

Well, look at me now on the outside
Looking for a way to get in
I've been all around, now I've finally found
I only want your love back again.

Chorus
And Baby, it's been lonely without you
And maybe every heart needs a home
But now I know I can't live without you
You're the only real love I've known
Baby, won't you take me back home.

Wasn't I the one who was searching?
Looking for my place in the sun
And didn't I say I could just walk away?
Wasn't I the hard-hearted one?

Now isn't it my heart that's breaking?
And isn't it me who was wrong?
And isn't it strange how people can change?
Don't know what we've missed til it's gone.

Repeat Chorus
And Baby, it's been lonely without you
And maybe every heart needs a home
But now I know I can't live without you
You're the only real love I've known
Baby, won't you take me back home.

LYRICS:

When I was just a little bitty boy
Sittin' on the front porch swing
Folks would stop and just gather around
Got to be a front porch thing
Daddy there pickin' on his old guitar
Boy, the old man could sing
Forever I'll remember all the music we made
Sittin' on the front porch swing

- Instrumental Break -

Front porch memories still hold strong
Banjo and the mandolin
Washboard scratchin' out our favorite song
Tub bass kickin' in
Daddy still strummin' on his old guitar
Boy the old man could sing…
Forever I'll remember all the fun we shared
Sittin' on the front porch swing!
Now whenever we're together…
Sittin' and a swingin'…
We're pickin' and a grinnin' and
a-sittin' on the front porch swing

HOT ROCK CAME TO COUNTRY

LYRICS:

We were sittin' on the front porch Saturday night
Kickin' back, takin' a break (…or was it Monday?)
Pickin' our guitars, layin' some licks
When the whole house started to shake
We looked straight up 'n saw an awesome sight
There sailin' over head
Streakin' through the sky like the 4th of July
Came the big ball of burnin' red

Well, it was movin' real fast and it flew right past
Our front porch - pickin' up steam
Scarin' all the chickens nearly half to death
And tearin' off the tops of the trees
When it came to rest just a little bit west
Of our big ol' barn in the field
We felt a hot shock - the whole place rocked
Knockin' us back on our heels

Chorus
When that Hot Rock came to the Country
The whole country started to roll
Well it made a big blast as it flew right past
And opened up a hundred foot hole
But the really cool thing as we started to sing
It shook us down to our soul
And the music's never gonna sound the same again
Since the Country's gone Rock 'n Roll

Didn't take long for the sheriff to call
"You boys see anything strange?"
Was that a UFO? 'cause whatever it was
Man, it's lightin' up our radar range
So we told the truth we reported the news
And this is what the radio said
Just a meteor shower, at this late hour
Go home and tuck yourselves in bed

But just about then, climbing out of that hole
Crawled a funny little green-faced man
Staring at us he just smiled and said
"I've come to join a Rock & Roll band
Now Country's sweet and you got a great beat
But you got to play it down to your soul
Yeah, Country's fine but for a really hot time
I came to make it Rock & Roll!"

Chorus
When that Hot Rock came to the Country
The whole country started to roll
Well it made a big blast as it flew right past
And opened up a hundred foot hole
But the really cool thing as we started to sing
It shook us down to our soul
And Country's never gonna sound the same again
Now Country's gonna Rock & Roll
Now Hot Rock's come to Country and
Country's gone Rock & Roll
Rock & Roll… (flew 5 trillion light years…)
Rock & Roll… (just to Rock the country…)
Rock & Roll…
Country's gonna Rock and Roll... (rockin' U.S.A...)
Rock & Roll…
Rock & Roll… (Country Rocks...!)

LYRICS:

Love, do you remember..."Once-Upon-A-Time?"
Love was all we lived for, the world was yours and mine
But now the nights get lonely and sadness fills my heart
I love you still, but time took us apart.

Chorus
Now, there's time enough for fighting, time enough for tears
Time to hold your memory when I'm gone
But, no time now to dry your eyes, no time to hold you near
'Cause, Baby, right now it's time for moving on...´time for moving on.

Love, do you remember, time was on our side
We started out together, you said you'd be my bride
But, now the party's over, there's no more left to say
I love you still, but time took you away.

(Repeat Chorus)

Love, will you remember, and think of me someday
The good times live forever, the bad times drift away
And someday you'll remember and know that it was so
I loved you more than you could ever know.

Chorus
But, there's no time left for fighting, no time left for tears
No time left to hold you when I'm gone
Someday, maybe when there's time, we'll still recall the years
When you were mine, before our time was gone...´time for moving on. (Repeat)

LYRICS:

Well, I'm standing at the crossroads of the fast lanes of my mind
And I'm getting tired-of leavin' that girl behind
And I'd love to take her with me each and every place I go
But my tongue gets tied-when I try to tell her so
And I'm so tired of leavin' things this way
But I ain't got words to say-the way I'm feelin'...

Chorus
So I'll just Dream Of Her Tonight (and miss her...)
And long to hold her tight (and kiss her...)
And it somehow don't seem right-so mister I'm pleadin'
Won't you sit and write a song for me
The kind the ladies love
With guitars and three-part harmony
And the moon-lit stars above
And I'll sit and sing it softly
Tell her who I'm dreamin' of....

Well, I'm rollin' through the canyons and the hollows of my mind
And I'm getting tired-of leavin' that girl behind
And I've somehow got to reach her, teach her everything I know
But my brain gets fried-when I try to tell her so
And I'm so tired of leavin' things this way
But I ain't got words to say-the way I'm feelin'...

Chorus
So I'll just Dream Of Her Tonight (and miss her...)
And long to hold her tight (and kiss her...)
Still it somehow don't seem right-so mister I'm pleadin'
Won't you sit and write a song for me
The kind she'll understand
With guitars and three-part harmony
And the "Front-Porch Country Band"
And I'll sit and sing it softly to her
Tell her I'm her man...
Well, I'm standing at the off-ramp of the exits of my mind
And I'm getting tired-of leavin' that girl behind
And I'd love to take her with me each and every place I go
But my tongue gets tied-when I try to tell her so
And I'm so tired of leavin' things this way
But I ain't got words to say-the way I'm feelin'...

Chorus
So I'll just Dream Of Her Tonight (and miss her...)
And long to hold her tight (and kiss her...)
And it somehow don't seem right-so mister I'm pleadin'
Won't you sit and write a song for me
The kind the ladies love
With guitars and three-part harmony
And the moon-lit stars above
And I'll sit and sing it softly
Tell her who I'm dreamin' of....

LYRICS:

I took my song to the County Fair
I said, "I want to be a Star!"
And the music man with the coal black hair
Said, "Son, you know, you could go far!
You look real clean and you sound real keen
And man, you play a mean guitar!
Now all it takes is just a few big breaks, boy,
Before you know it…there you are!"

And I said, "Sit down, I've got a song to sing…"
But he said my song would never sell
"But these fans will go for anything
If we package you up real well…"

So they changed my style…they changed my looks…
The record people changed my name
And before too long, they changed my song
And soon I didn't sound the same.
So when I stepped on stage like I was all the rage…
The people saw right through the game!
But as they stood to go, you know, I stopped the show…when I said
"Thank you, folks, I'm glad you came!"

And then I said, "Sit down I got a song to sing…
You know, they say my song'll never sell…
But if I never learn another thing, well,
This story's mine to tell…"

And so the lights went down, I turned around…
Picked up my old guitar…
And I sang it low…I sang it soft…
And ooohh, the music touched their hearts
And as the last notes died…they dried their eyes…
And then I heard the cheering start…

And now every time I sing my song that way…
The people cheer, and I've just got to say…you know…
The D-Jay called me just the other day…to say…
I'm Number One on all the charts!
And I've finally learned, no matter what they say
If you're going to play the music…play it straight…
From the heart.

I took my song to the County Fair
I said, "I want to be a Star!"
And the music man with the coal black hair
Said, "Son, you know, you could go far…!"..

LYRICS:

Sail me home, Solomon Wind
'Been away too long, head me home again
Comes a time, we grow too old
Need a heart, a hand to hold.

Sail me down the Solomon Keys
Head me out across the seven seas
And I've sailed too long alone
Nothing for me now but the heading home...

Chorus
All my life a sailor, see me stranded on the shore
I come too soon to see my journey's end
Lived my life alone, now I can't take it anymore
Need to feel your soft sea breeze again.

And sail me home, Solomon Wind
Don't believe she'll back again
Quiet sky, silent sea
Let your cool dark waters carry me...

Chorus
Are we all just sailors standing stranded on the shore?
We come too soon to see our journeys' end
Live our lives alone til we can't take it anymore
Need to feel your soft sea breeze again.

And sail me home, Solomon Wind
'Been away too long, head me home again
Comes a time, we grow too old
Need a heart, a hand to hold...

LYRICS:

She chased her Christmas star across the city
She watched his magic light the Christmas sky
And early on one snowy Christmas morning
He whispered that he’d never say good-bye

Now love was long ago and dreams were younger
And memories fade like children’s lullabies
Close your eyes remember Christmas morning
Christmas morning once upon a time

Christmastime and love is all around us
Christmastime and love is yours and mine
Close your eyes remember Christmas morning
Christmas morning once upon a time

Christmastime and love is all around us
Christmastime and love is yours and mine
Close your eyes remember Christmas morning
Christmas morning once upon a time
