The Cowboy and the Lady

Maret 31, 2007 3 komentar

In the airport lounge she sat in a Marlena Dietrich hat
The grandest lady I had ever seen
Outside the heavy rains had grounded all the planes
So I asked her if she’d like some company

In my rhinestone studded suit, my cowboy hat and boots
I must have been a sight for her to see
But she said, “Pull up a chair,” as she fumbled with her hair
A more unlikely pair you’ll never see

I was Mogen David wine, she was Chablis fifty-nine
But there we sat, the cowboy and the lady
She was evenings at the opera and summers in Paree
I was Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee

The cowboy and the lady
As diff’rent as could be
But it seemed so right that rainy night
In Tennessee

Then somewhere in between her Harey’s Bristol Creme
And the seven beers I ordered for the lady
We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather
Now there’s a bit of class in this old cowboy
And there’s a little bit of cowboy in the lady

The cowboy and the lady
As diff’rent as could be
But it seemed so right that rainy night
In Tennessee

We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather
Now there’s a bit of class in this old cowboy
And there’s a little bit of cowboy in the lady

Rocky Mountain High

Maret 31, 2007 4 komentar

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Coming home to a place he’d never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hanging by a song
But the string’s already broken and he doesn’t really care
It keeps changing fast and it don’t last for long

But the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lulla bye
Rocky mountain high

He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
And he lost a friend but kept his memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky
I know he’d be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high

It’s Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire and everybody’s high
Rocky mountain high

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Maret 31, 2007 199 komentar

All my bags are packed
Im ready to go
Im standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breaking
Its early morn
The taxis waiting
Hes blowin his horn
Already Im so lonesome
I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go

Theres so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now, they dont mean a thing
Every place I go, I’ll think of you
Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you
When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don;t know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
Then close your eyes
Ill be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I wont have to leave alone
About the times, I wont have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

A Country Girl In Paris

Maret 31, 2007 1 komentar

A country girl in Paris, moonlight on the Seine
Memories of Tennessee, Nashville in the rain
Its such a contradiction, a heart thats filled with pain
A country girl in Paris, dreamin Nashville in the rain

She walks along the boulevard, Champs Alysee
Thinks about a country boy three thousand miles away
Pride is such a hard thing, its such a price to pay
To be all alone in Paris with true love so far away

Up upon Mont Martre when she stops to rest awhile
All the artists look at her and they long to paint her smile
For even in her sorrow theres something in her eyes
That makes the young men jealous, makes the old men sigh

They say the loss of innocence is always linked to pain
For once the heart is opened nothing ever is the same
And so the evening lends itself to lovers and romance
The way to heal a broken heart is to give true love
One more chance

A country girl in Paris, moonlight on the Seine
Memories of Tennessee, Nashville in the rain
Its such a contradiction, a heart thats filled with pain
A country girl in Paris, dreamin Nashville in the rain
A country girl in Paris, longing for Nashville in the rain

A Baby Just Like You

Maret 31, 2007 9 komentar

The season is upon us now
A time for gifts and giving
And as the year draws to its close
I think about my living

The Christmastime when I was young
The magic and the wonder
But colors dull and candles dim
And dark my standing under

Oh little Zachary, shining light
Youve set my soul to dreaming
Youve given back my joy in life
And filled me with new meaning

A savior king was born that day
A baby just like you
And as the Magi came with gifts
Ive come with my gift too

That peace on earth fills up your time
That brotherhood surrounds you
That you may know the warmth of love
And wrap it all around you

Its just a wish, a dream Im told
From days when I was young
Merry Christmas little Zachary
Merry Christmas evryone

Grandmas Feather Bed

Desember 7, 2006 2 komentar

When I was a little bitty boy
Just up off the floor,
We used to go down to Grandma’s house
Every month end or so
We’d have chicken pie, country ham
Home-made butter on the bread
But the best damn thing about Grandma’a house
Was the great big feather bed

Chorus

It was nine feet high, six feet wide
Soft as a downy chick
It was mad of the feathers of four-eleven geese
And a while roll of clothe for the tick
It could hold eight kids, four hound dogs
And the piggy that we stole form the shed (oink, oink!)
Didn’t get much sleep but we had alot of fun
In Grandma’s feather bed

After supper we’d sit around the fire
The old folks spit and chew
Pa would talk about the farm in the war
And Grandma’d sing a ballad or two
I’d sit and listen and watch the fire
Till the cobwebs filled my head
Nest thing I’d know I’d wake up in the morn’
In the middle of the old feather bed

Chorus

Well, I love my ma, I love my pa
I love Granny and Granpa too
Been fishing with my uncle, wrestled with my cousin
And I even kissed aunt Sue (foo!)
But if I ever had to make a choice
I think it oughta be said
That I’d trade them all plus the gal down the road
For Grandma’s feather bed
(Well, maybe not the gal down the road)

Chorus X2

Goodbye Again

Desember 7, 2006 2 komentar

Verse 1

It’s five o’ clock this morning and the sun is on the rise
There’s frosting on the window pane and sarrow in your eyes
The stars are fading quietly, night is nearly gone
And so you turn away from me and tears begin to come…

CHORUS

It’s goodbye again, I’m sorry to be leavin’ you
Goodbye again, in case you didn’t know
It’s goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go?

Verse 2

It seems a shame to leave you now you lay so soft and warm
I long to lay me down again and hold you in my arms
I long to kiss the tears away, give you back your smile
But other voices beakon me and for a little while…

CHORUS

Bridge

I have to go and see some friends of mine.
Some that I don’t know, some who aren’t familiar with my name.
It’s something that’s inside of me, not hard to understand.
It’s just anyone who’ll listen to me sing.

CHORUS

Verse 3

So if your hours are empty now, who am I to blame?
You think if I were always here, our love would be the same?
And as it is the time we have, is worth the time alone.
But lying by your side’s the greatest peace I’ve ever known.

CHORUS
