  1. Disc One – Let Me Touch You For A While Lyrics

    Let Me Touch You For A While

    Robert Lee Castleman/ Live Slow Music (BMI)

    It’s been a long time coming
    I guess you shared a lonesome tear
    Now you’re in a wonder why me
    I wonder what you’re doing here
    The flame no longer flickers
    You’re feeling just like a fool
    You keep staring into your liquor
    Wondering what to do

    I don’t hardly know you
    But I’d be willing to show you
    I know a way to make you smile
    Let me touch you for a while

    I’m gonna ruin my black mascara
    You’re drinking whiskey when it should be wine
    You keep looking into that mirror
    But to me you’re looking really fine

    I don’t hardly know you
    But I’d be willing to show you
    I know a way to make you laugh
    If that cowgirl is just walking at your door
    I know a way to make you smile
    Just let me whisper things you’ve never heard before
    Just let me touch you baby
    Let me touch you for a while

    I don’t hardly know you
    But I’d be willing to show you
    I know a way to make you smile

    It’s been a long time
    Let me touch you for a while

  3. Disc One – The Lucky One Lyrics

    The Lucky One
    Written by Robert Lee Catleman

    Published by Live Slow Music (BMI)

    You’re the lucky one so I’ve been told
    As free as the wind blowin’ down the road
    Loved by many hated by none
    I know you’re lucky ‘cause I know what you done
    Not a care in the world not a worry in sight
    Everything’s gonna be alright
    ‘Cause you’re the lucky one
    Ya you’re the lucky one

    You’re the lucky one always havin’ fun
    A jack of all trades a master of none
    You look at the world with a smilin’ eye
    And laugh at the devil as his train rolls by
    Just give you a song and a one-night stand
    And I’ll be lookin’ at a happy man
    ‘Cause you’re the lucky one
    Ya you’re the lucky one

    I see you’re blessed I guess
    By never knowin’ which road you’re choosin’
    To you the next best thing
    To playin’ and winnin’ is playin’ and loosin’

    You’re the lucky one I know that now
    Don’t ask me why, when, where, or how
    No matter where you’re at I’ll come along
    And I’ll bet your luck is even in this song
    And when I’m feelin’ down, when I’m feelin’ blue
    All I gotta do is think of you
    ‘Cause you’re the lucky one
    Ya the lucky one.

  5. Disc One – Bright Sunny South Lyrics

    Bright Sunny South

    Traditional

    From the bright sunny south to the war, I was sent,
    E’er the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent.
    From it’s cool shady forests and deep flowing streams,
    Ever fond in my mem’ry and sweet in my dreams.

    Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears.
    When I had to leave home in our tender years.
    And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart,
    It grieved me sincerely when we had to part.

    Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand:
    “As you go in defence of our dear native land,
    “Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can.
    “Our hearts will be with you, ’til you ‘turn again.”

    In my bag there’s a bible to show me the way,
    Through my twelfth year on earth and to Heaven some day.
    I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword,
    In defence of this land and the word of the Lord.

  9. Disc One – Stay Lyrics

    Stay
    Written by Allyson Taylor, Larry Byrom

    Indigo Sky Music Publishing (ASCAP) / Nehiamiahs Wall (BMI)

    Where have you been,
    My long lost friend?
    It’s good to see you again.
    Come and sit for a while
    I’ve missed your smile.
    Today the past is goodbye.
    Time can’t erase
    A lover’s embrace.
    Can’t you hear it calling?
    A new day dawning
    You were longing to find.

    Love’s taken you far
    Away from my heart,
    And I’ve been here all alone.
    Have your eyes failed to find
    What took you from mine,
    A vision that’s faded through time?
    But you sailed away,
    A fine summer’s day,
    Cause you heard it calling,
    A new day dawning,
    You were longing to find.

    Chorus:
    There is a way to make you stay.
    Darlin don’t turn away.
    Don’t doubt your heart
    and keep us apart
    I’m right where you are
    Stay.

    There is a way to make you stay.
    Darlin don’t turn away.
    Don’t doubt your heart
    and keep us apart
    I’m right where you are
    Stay.

  11. Disc One – Ghost In This House Lyrics

    A Ghost in This House
    Written by Hugh Prestwood

    Published by Careers-BMG Music Publishing, Inc. / Hugh Prestwood Music (BMI)

    I don’t pick up the mail
    I don’t pick up the phone
    I don’t answer the door
    I’d just as soon be alone
    I don’t keep this place up
    I just keep the lights down
    I don’t live in these rooms
    I just rattle around

    I’m just a ghost in this house
    I’m just a shadow upon these walls
    As quietly as a mouse I haunt these halls
    I’m just a whisper of smoke
    I’m all that’s left of two hearts on fire
    That once burned out of control
    You took my body and soul
    I’m just a ghost in this house

    I don’t care if it rains
    I don’t care if it’s clear
    I don’t mind staying in
    There’s another ghost here
    He sits down in your chair
    And he shines with your light
    And he lays down his head
    On your pillow at night

    I’m just a ghost in this house
    I’m just a shadow upon these walls
    I’m living proof of the damage
    Heartbreak does
    I’m just a whisper of smoke
    I’m all that’s left of two hearts on fire
    That once burned out of control
    And took my body and soul
    I’m just a ghost in this house
    Oh, I’m just a ghost in this house

  12. Disc One – Forget About It Lyrics

    Forget About It
    Written by Robert Lee Castleman

    Published by Sixteen Stars Music (BMI)

    Forget about it
    I’m admittin’ I was wrong
    And I’ll just take what’s mine
    And walk right out the door
    Forget about it
    I’ll split and I’ll be gone
    And you’ll have memories
    You’ll find hard to ignore
    ‘Cause after all
    I see you sometime
    Maybe when I can’t recall
    How you drove me crazier
    Forget about it
    When forever’s over
    I won’t remember how much
    I loved you anymore
    Forget about it
    Put me out of your head
    Now that you’re free and easy
    Out there on the town
    Forget about it
    When you’re lying in bed just wishing
    I was there to lay you down

    ‘Cause after all
    I see you sometime maybe
    When you will recall
    How I drove you crazier
    Forget about those stars in your eyes
    Laying by the fireside
    Holding you tight
    I can’t remember when I felt so right
    So just forget about it

    Forget about it
    When you see me on the street
    Don’t wink, don’t wave
    Don’t try to tease me with your smile
    Forget about it
    If we chance to meet somewhere
    Don’t think it’s cause I’m trying to reconcile

    ‘Cause after all
    I see you sometime maybe
    When I can’t recall
    How you drove me crazier
    Forget about those stars in your eyes
    Laying by the fireside
    Holding you tight
    I can’t remember when I felt so right
    So just forget about it

    The Boy Who Wouldn’t Hoe Corn

    Traditional/ Arranged by Alison Krauss + Union Station and Patrick Brayer

    Moist ‘N Fudgy Music/ Church Teeth Music (adm. by Bug Music) (BMI)

    Tell You a little story and it won’t take long,
    ‘Bout a lazy farmer who wouldn’t hoe his corn.
    The reason why I never could tell,
    That young man was always well.

    He planted his corn in the month of June.
    By July it was up to his eyes.
    Come September, came a big frost.
    And all the young man’s corn was lost.

    His story, kith, had just begun.
    Said: “Young man, have you hoed some corn?”
    “Well I tried and I tried, and I tried in vain.
    “But I don’t believe I raised no grain.”

    He went down town to his neighbor’s door.
    Where he had often been before.
    Sayin’: “Pretty little miss, will you marry me?”
    “Little miss what do you say?”

    “Why do you come for me to wed?
    “You, can’t even make your own corn grain.
    “Single I am, and will remain.
    “A lazy man, I won’t maintain.”

    He turned his back and walked away.
    Sayin: “Little miss, you’ll rue the day.
    “You’ll rue the day that you were born.
    “For givin’ me the devil ’cause I wouldn’t hoe corn.”

    Maybe
    Written by Gordon Kennedy, Phil Madeira

    Polygram International Publishing, Inc. / Sondance Kid Music-Mail Train Music (adm. by Funattic) (ASCAP)

    Yesterday the odds were stacked
    In favor of my expectations
    Flyin’ above the rest
    Never fallin’ from the nest
    Tuesday came and went and now
    I’m in a little situation
    Maybe it’s for the best
    I can live alone, I guess

    Maybe I can stand alone
    Maybe I’m strong as stone
    Even though the bird has flown
    Maybe he’ll fly on home

    Forgive me if I’m keeping you
    Apart from better conversation
    Hung up on all my doubt
    Trying to sort the whole thing out
    Tell me that I’m smart enough
    To deal with all the information
    Spinning inside my head
    Every word he ever said

    Maybe I can stand alone
    Maybe I’m strong as stone
    Even though the bird has flown
    Maybe he’ll fly on home

    Maybe I can stand alone
    Maybe I’m strong as stone
    Even though the bird has flown
    Maybe he’ll fly on home

    There Is A Reason

    Ron Block

    I’ve seen hard times and I’ve been told
    There isn’t any wonder that I fall
    Why do we suffer, crossing off the years
    There must be a reason for it allI’ve trusted in You, Jesus, to save me from my sin
    Heaven is the place I call my home
    But I keep on getting caught up in this world I’m living in
    And Your voice it sometimes fades before I knowHurtin’ brings my heart to You, crying with my need
    Depending on Your love to carry me
    The love that shed His blood for all the world to see
    This must be the reason for it all

    Hurtin’ brings my heart to You, a fortress in the storm
    When what I wrap my heart around is gone
    I give my heart so easily to the ruler of this world
    When the one who loves me most will give me all

    In all the things that cause me pain You give me eyes to see
    I do believe but help mine unbelief
    I’ve seen hard times and I’ve been told
    There is a reason for it all
