  1. Gravity Lyrics

    Gravity
    Written by Robert Lee Castleman

    I left home when I was seventeen
    I just grew tired of fallin’ down
    And I’m sure I was told… the allure of the road
    Would be all I found

    And all the answers that I started with
    Turned out questions in the end
    ‘Cause the years roll on by
    And Just like the sky
    The road never ends

    And the people who love me still ask me
    When are you comin’ back to town?
    And I answer, quite frankly
    When they stop buildin’ roads
    And all God needs is gravity to hold
    Me down

    Solo

    And the people who love me still ask me
    When are you comin’ back to town?
    And I answer, quite frankly,
    When they stop buildin’ roads
    And there ain’t no more highways to be found
    And I answer, quite frankly,
    when they stop buildin’ roads
    And all God needs is gravity to hold
    Me down

  2. Restless Lyrics

    Restless

     

    Honey, I know you’ve been alone some
    Why don’t you ‘phone some, ’cause I love you
    And honey, I know I’ve been away some
    I’ve had to pay some and you have too

    But the one thing I know, that when I, I turn out the light
    Visions of you dear, dance in the night
    I’ve been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown
    And I can’t help it if I’m out of sight
    ‘Cause I’m restless tonight

    I just can’t stand being alone
    Gonna have to change that some day
    There’s a restless feelin’ in my bones and I know
    That at times, it just won’t go away

    So if it’s all the same, honey, I can’t take the blame, baby
    I can’t play your game honey, what’s true is true
    And if in the end, the temptation wears you thin honey
    I’ll, I’ll just pretend that I’ll leave it up to you

    But the one thing I know that when I, I turn out the light
    Visions of you dear, dance in the night
    I’ve been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown
    Can’t help it if I’m full of fight

    But the one thing I know that when I, I turn out the light
    Visions of you dear, dance in the night
    I’ve been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown
    And I can’t help it if I’m out of sight
    ‘Cause I’m restless tonight

     

     

     

  3. Rain Please Go Away Lyrics

    Rain Please Go Away

    Words and music by Del McCoury, McCoury Music (BMI)

    Rain, please go away
    Leave me alone, come another day
    My love is gone, this time to stay
    Rain, please go away

    It’s tough to live the whole day through
    Thinkin’ of her is all I do
    She’s happy now, and I’m so blue
    Rain, she’s cold like you

    If only the time wouldn’t drag so slow
    Find a new love and let it grow
    I’m kiddin’ myself, it don’t happen that way
    Rain, please go away

    Rain, please go away
    Leave me alone, come another day
    My love is gone, this time to stay
    Rain, please go away

  4. Goodbye Is All We Have Lyrics

    Goodbye Is All We Have
    Written by Sarah Siskind

    I’m soaring the sky
    I can hear the birds and man they don’t lie
    How you gonna catch me when I’m this high?

    I’m movin’ on
    I got the words to a brand new song
    How you gonna catch me when I’m this gone?

    Gone tomorrow, here today
    Just in case you’ve got something to say
    I’ll be leaving with the rest if goodbye is all we have

    I disconnected the phone
    told the neighbors I’ll be heading on
    As soon as the light hits the lawn

    I’m headed north
    gonna see what this heart’s really worth
    I guess it’s time to be on my own

    Gone tomorrow, here today
    Just in case you’ve got something to say
    I’ll be leaving with the rest if goodbye is all we have

    I sure would love to see you tonight
    maybe try to end this fight
    If I don’t hear you knocking on my door
    then I’ll know for sure…

    Gone tomorrow, here today
    Just in case you’ve got something to say
    I’ll be leaving with the rest if goodbye is all…

    Gone tomorrow, here today
    I’ll be leaving with the rest if goodbye is all we have

  6. Wouldn’t Be So Bad Lyrics

    Wouldn’t Be So Bad
    Written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings

    Take me back to Ramona Street
    Fill my glass again with the bitter sweet
    Cause I don’t want to see the life I had
    Thought the next time round wouldn’t be so bad

    Same mistake that I made before
    I’ll be waking up on the killing floor
    While the bells are ringing so low and sad
    Thought the next time round wouldn’t be so bad

    Same mistake that I made before
    I’ll be waking up on the killing floor
    I remember how I made you mad
    Thought the next time round wouldn’t be so bad
    Thought the next time round wouldn’t be so bad
    I thought the next time round wouldn’t be so bad

  7. Pastures Of Plenty Lyrics

    Pastures of Plenty

    (Woody Guthrie/Tro-Ludlow Music, Inc., BMI)

    Well, it’s always we ramble, this river and I
    All along your green valleys, I work till I die
    My land I’ll defend with my life need it be
    ‘Cause my pastures of plenty must always be free

    Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground
    From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down
    Every state in this union us migrants have been
    Lord, we come with the dust and we go with the wind

    California, Arizona, I harvest your crops
    Then it’s on up North to Oregon to gather your hogs
    Take the beet from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine
    Just to place on your table your that light, sparkling wine

     

  8. Crazy As Me Lyrics

    Crazy As Me
    Written by Robert Lee Castleman, Melanie Castleman

    I’m used to being alone
    Except for six month flings with diamond rings
    And phone bills that out weigh the phone
    This is the life that I chose
    I got no complaints if he is, if he ain’t
    And if he is I’ll guess he’ll send me a rose

    Just don’t ask me for the truth
    If you choose to lie honey
    And don’t try to open my door
    With your skeleton key
    Some folks seem to think I only got one problem
    I can’t find nobody as crazy as me

    I still love what I know
    I love to ride along and sing a song
    And listen to the radio
    You can ride along
    And if you change your mind well that’s just fine
    But there’s something that you’ve got to know

    Just don’t ask me for the truth
    If you choose to lie honey
    And don’t try to open my door
    With your skeleton key
    Some folks seem to think I only got one problem
    I can’t find nobody as crazy as me

    Just don’t ask me for the truth
    If you choose to lie honey
    And don’t try to open my door
    With your skeleton key
    Some folks seem to think I only got one problem
    I can’t find nobody as crazy as me.

  9. Borderline Lyrics

    Borderline

    So you’re on your own
    Looking down the road
    That goes only by one name
    And you don’t need the signs
    To see lonely still runs both ways
    So who’s the fool
    That would think the ties
    Would be better off undone
    Did your heart heed the warning
    When you veered from the path
    That was narrower an straight

    Chorus:
    On the borderline
    Somewhere between that
    Plight for freedom
    Feeling like you can’t move on
    The toll will be the time
    Takes you off of my mind
    And out of my heart I know
    And when you cross over
    There’s no turning back
    Once that burning bridge is gone

    Bridge:
    I may lose but I’m in it for the long run
    Loving you for good reason could be the wrong one
    I don’t want to loose control
    But the heart won’t learn to let it well enough alone

    Repeat chorus

    Tag:
    So you’re on your own
    Looking down the road
    That goes only by one name

  10. My Poor Old Heart Lyrics

    Poor Old Heart
    Written by Donna Hughes, Flying Hound

    Don’t expect too much from my poor old heart
    You can blame the unforgiven for my scars
    You might just be the best that I can find
    But I can’t seem…..
    To forget the tears I’ve cried

    Chorus:
    I don’t know that I will ever trust again
    It’s the price that I must pay for all my sins
    Time has changed me & left me full of doubt
    & my heart may be lost, never to be found

    Once upon a time I did believe
    In my true love that swept me off my feet
    Then the winds of change swept him away
    And left me drowning…..
    In my pain

    Chorus:
    I don’t know that I will ever love again
    It’s the price that I must pay for all my sins
    Time has changed me & left me full of doubt
    & my heart may be lost, never to be found

    Instrumental

    Chorus:
    I don’t know that I will ever love again
    It’s the price that I must pay for all my sins
    Time has changed me & left me full of doubt
    I don’t know that I will ever trust again
    It’s the price that I must pay for all my sins
    Time has changed me & left me full of doubt
    & my heart may be lost, never to be found

  11. This Sad Song Lyrics

    This Sad Song

    Words and music by Alison Krauss and Alison Brown

    Moist ‘n Fudgy Music (BMI), Admin. by Bug Music/Brown Knows Music (BMI), Admin. by MCS America

    Well, the rain is apourin’ down in a fury
    And the road is lookin’ long
    And the only thing that comes to mind
    Is the tune of this sad song
    Tune of this sad song! Oh Lord!

    Well, the wind is acreepin’ up my back
    Through the door, through the roof, through the window crack
    Tossin’ and a-turnin’ all night long
    To the rhythm and the sound of a saddened song
    Saddened song! Oh Lord!

    In a dream of passion I saw a face
    Of a beautiful woman in a terrible place
    She looked at me, and she called for you
    Then she closed her eyes and she sang this tune
    Sang this tune! Oh Lord!

  12. Doesn’t Have To Be This Way Lyrics

    It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

    Sometimes I wonder… where you’re comin’ from…
    When you roll in like thunder…just ta turn around and run…
    It’s a good thing I don’t need you to stay…

    When you smell like moonlight…and early mornin’ rain…
    Pray tell a fool might… surrender to your pain…
    Or find a cure for your decay…

    You’re at your best with an ache in your chest…
    And that worn out old song that you play…
    Only Jesus and you long to teach us …
    Should no one be left to betray…

    I don’t know the answer… But I know who to blame…
    You can choose the dancer or you can choose the flame …
    I think you’ll find they’re one in the same …
    But it doesn’t have to be this way…………

    Solo

  13. I Don’t Have To Live This Way Lyrics

    I Don’t Have To Live This Way

    I’ve been up and down the floor
    Sleep won’t hold me anymore
    You’re running out of games to play
    I don’t have to live this way

    Thought I loved you for a while
    You were loaded up on style
    Talk is cheap, but I won’t pay
    I don’t have to live this way

    Chorus
    No I won’t pay for games that you devise
    And I won’t wait to listen to your lies
    Before you speak another word
    I’ll repeat it, so I’m heard
    You’re running out of games to play
    I don’t have to live this way

    You won’t stay another night
    Or give your wrong another right
    Now I’ve got the eyes to see
    You get your kicks by hurting me

    Chorus
    No I won’t pay for games that you devise
    And I won’t wait to listen to your lies
    Before you speak another word
    I’ll repeat it, so I’m heard
    You’re running out of games to play
    I don’t have to live this way

  14. If I Didn’t Know Any Better Lyrics

    If I Didn’t Know Any Better
    Written By Sherrill and Smith

    I turned around
    Before I could run I found you
    Already settled down
    I know this
    Is just a customary fever
    The moon is a deceiver
    That will leave you running blind

    Chorus:
    Your heart is pulling
    If I didn’t know any better
    I’d be fallin’ deeper and deeper, it’s true
    I’d hear it calling
    If I didn’t know any better
    And I’d be in love with you

    I didn’t want to
    Look in the eyes of the one
    That I would be drawn to
    I’m a moth lost in a fire
    And I know this is
    Just a beautiful illusion
    A case of the confusion
    Between love and desire

    Chorus:
    Your heart is pulling
    If I didn’t know any better
    I’d be fallin’ deeper and deeper, it’s true
    I’d hear it calling
    If I didn’t know any better
    And I’d be in love

    Bridge:
    When the flame burns out
    And finally settles down
    And you forget
    I ever came around

    Chorus:

    Tag:
    I turned around
    Before I could run I found you
    Already settled down
    In the back of my mind.

  15. A Living Prayer Lyrics

    A Living Prayer

    Words and music by Ron Block

    Moonlight Canyon Publishing (BMI), Admin. by Bug Music

    In this world I walk alone

    With no place to call my home
    But there’s One who holds my hand
    The rugged road through barren lands
    The way is dark, the road is steep
    But He’s become my eyes to see
    The strength to climb, my griefs to bear
    This Savior lives inside me there

    In Your love I find release
    A haven from my unbelief
    Take my life and let me be
    A living prayer my God to thee

    In these trials of life I find
    Another Voice inside my mind
    He comforts me and bids me live
    Inside the love the Father gives

    In your love I find release
    A haven from my unbelief
    Take my life and let me be
    A living prayer my God to thee
    Take my life and let me be
    A living prayer my God to thee
