  1. Let Me Touch You For Awhile Lyrics

    Let Me Touch You For A While

    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

  2. The Boy Who Wouldn’t Hoe Corn Lyrics

    The Boy Who Wouldn’t Hoe Corn

    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.”

  3. The Lucky One Lyrics

    The Lucky One
    Written by Robert Lee Catleman

    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. Crazy Faith Lyrics

    Crazy Faith
    Written by Mark Simos

    I lit my love and watched it burn
    Asking nothing in return
    Except the lessons I would learn
    By holding crazy faith

    I’ve been touched by that bright fire
    Down to the root of my desire
    While the smoke it rises higher
    On crazy faith

    Chorus:

    You’re not asking if I love this man
    I know you don’t, you don’t believe you can
    Yet I’ve seen love open like a dancer’s fan
    It’s crazy I know
    But my faith says so, it tells me

    Am I a fool for hanging on?

    Would I be a fool to be long gone?
    When is daylight going to dawn
    On my crazy faith?

    The questions will not let me sleep
    Answers buried way too deep
    At the bottom of a lovers’ leap
    Made by crazy faith

    Chorus:

    Love your losing, lose your love
    Let the hawk fly from the glove
    Then do not search the skies above
    Search your crazy faith

    Love is lightning, love is ice
    It only strikes the lucky twice
    Once, so you will know the price
    And once for crazy faith

    Chorus:

    You’re not asking if I love this man
    I know you don’t, you don’t believe you can
    Yet I’ve seen love open like a dancer’s fan
    It’s crazy I know
    But my faith says so

  6. Momma Cried Lyrics

    Momma Cried
    Written by Bob Lucas

    Momma loved us, every one.
    Every daughter, very son.
    She gave herself so happily,
    That’s just the way she was, you see.

    From dawn to dark she’d find a chore.
    And work it ’til it was no more.
    And every day until she died,
    In the evening, Momma cried.
    (Chorus)
    Momma cried;
    There was mourning in the evening.
    And Momma cried;
    ‘Cos her little girl was gone.

    Her little girl was snatched away.
    She was there and then just gone one day.
    And Momma blamed herself, I’d say,
    But all of us had debts to pay.

    (Chorus)

    I did my best to cheer her pride.
    That day that something broke inside.
    I swore I’d find her and I tried.
    In the evening, Momma cried.

    (Chorus x 2)

  7. I’m Gone Lyrics

    I’m Gone
    Written by Wendy Waldman, Eric Kaz

    When you came to me
    You said love could not erase
    The ever-present memory
    of another face

    I tried to make you love me
    How could I be so blind
    To think I’d be the one
    To change your mind

    And if I’m gone before you start
    Well you can find me in your heart
    Who can say if it’s right or wrong
    I’ve waited for you too long
    And if I can’t hold on
    I’m gone

    When you came to me
    I said love will find a way
    For every heart that leaves
    Another heart will stay

    I guess you couldn’t see
    Past the shadows in the night
    It seems the time for us
    Just wasn’t right

    And if I’m gone before you start
    Well you can find me in your heart
    Who can say if it’s right or wrong
    I’ve waited for you too long
    And if I can’t hold on
    I’m gone

  8. Daylight Lyrics

    Daylight
    Written by Bob Lucas

    Daylight falls and I’m lost in the big parade.
    Hold my hand, darling, I’m afraid of the daylight.
    Shade is dark.
    Cool and languid for life or love.
    Safe in shadows; never stark as the daylight.
    As the daylight.

    When I was just knee high,
    My Momma told me, never try,
    To be someone that I am not.
    Yet over time I had forgot,
    The wandering child, so lost at play:
    He’s found himself but he can’t find his way,
    In the daylight.
    Oh, the daylight.

    Ooh, daylight.
    Ooh, daylight.

    Life is short, and there’s no turning back the time.
    Fragrant meadows and rocks to climb in the daylight.
    In my mind,
    There’s a corner I need to turn.
    Lessons lived is a lesson learned in the daylight.
    In the daylight.

    I miss the forest shade,
    You took me there, the promise I made,
    To never leave the dark so deep.
    Safe and soothing, yet I fear,
    As I recall and now reflect,
    I see it’s safer to connect,
    To the daylight.
    Oh, the daylight.

    Ooh, daylight.
    Ooh, daylight.

    Daylight falls and I’m lost in the big parade.
    Hold my hand, darling, I’m afraid of the daylight.
    Of the day…

  9. Bright Sunny South Lyrics

    Bright Sunny South

    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.

  10. Stars Lyrics

    Stars
    Written by Dan Fogelberg

    Stood out in the rain.
    Let it soak me down,
    Before I called you,
    I called you.

    You did not see me there,
    Hidden by the dark,
    Beneath your window,
    But I saw you.

    When putting on a face for the mirror on the wall.
    Dreaming that the looking glass is you.
    Catching my fondest gazes;
    Living through my fickle phases.
    I love you.

    Spend my time on ‘phones,
    Tryin’ just to talk,
    But you don’t answer
    You let it ring.

    Spend my nights alone,
    Catching fallin’ stars,
    To give to you, love.
    They’re just for you.

    Stars fall every time a lover has to face the truth.
    And far too many stars have fell on me.
    And as they trail the skies,
    And burn their paths upon my eyes,
    I cry.

    And it’s getting easier, each day, to weep about you.
    Harder, every night, to sleep without you.
    How many years must I be,
    Driven by this dream of love with you?

  11. It All Comes Down To You Lyrics

    It All Comes Down To You
    Written by Ron Block

    Who do you think you’re talkin’ to.
    You know me, and I know you.
    Your silence and your stony face,
    You don’t have the ground to waste.
    Your love is gone, ‘cos it all comes down to you.

    What can we say when all is said?
    A house divided cannot stand.
    Your head and heart and chary gaze,
    Life is just too short to waste.
    Your love is gone, ‘cos it all comes down to you.

    I’ve paid for you and you don’t seem to mind.
    I’m bending over backwards; you’re not satisfied.
    What more can I offer, to lay upon the alter?
    Love is gone, ‘cos it all comes down to you.

    What can we do when all is done?
    Your life’s not the only one.
    Just take a look beyond yourself,
    The reason of your private hell:
    Your love is gone, ‘cos it all comes down to you.

    I’ve paid for you and you don’t seem to mind.
    I’m bending over backwards; you’re not satisfied.
    What more can I offer, to lay upon the alter?
    Love is gone, ‘cos it all comes down to you.
