“DEATH OF ME”

(Jared Tyler)

 

BABYDOLL BABYDOLL

WITHOUT YOU I WOULD GO INSANE

IN YOUR LOVE I DO TRUST

I WONDER WOULD YOU TAKE MY NAME

 

I WANT TO PLEASE YOU IN EVERYTHING THAT I DO

I BELIEVE YOU WHEN YOU TELL ME

THAT YOU REALLY LOVIN’ WANT ME TO

 

HOW DO I LOVE YA

TO COUNT THE WAYS

I’D NEED FOREVER AND ANOTHER DAY

IF I DIDN’T HAVE YOU

I KNOW IT’D BE THE DEATH O ME

 

BABYDOLL BABYDOLL

WOULD YOU WEAR MY SILVER RING

WE’LL SETTLE DOWN OUTTA TOWN

AND CUDDLE ON THE PORCH SWING

 

I SEE US DANCIN’  CHEEK TO CHEEK SKIN TO SKIN

WE’LL BE ROMANCIN’ IN OUR NINETIES

MAYBE WE’LL MAKE  110

 

HOW DO I LOVE YA

TO COUNT THE WAYS

I’D NEED FOREVER AND ANOTHER DAY

IF I CAN’T HAVE YA I KNOW IT’D BE THE DEATH OF ME

IF I DIDN’T HAVE YA I KNOW IT’D BE THE DEATH OF ME

WELL I KNOW IT’D BE THE DEATH OF ME

 

 

 

“DRESSED IN WHITE”

(Malcolm Holcombe)

 

CANDLES IN THE WINDOW

FLASHIN’ THROUGH THE NIGHT

IN A ROOM UPSTAIRS A WOMAN

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

WORDS WRAPPED UP IN LOSIN’

HAMMERED TO A WALL

IN A DIRTY CITY SEARCHIN’

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

DRESSED IN WHITE FOREVER

CALLIN’ FOR THE BEST

THE BEST HER FATHER OFFERED

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

PAUL WAS A SINGLE MAN

HE WAS GREAT AS MANY BEEN TOLD

PEOPLE COME AND GO AND WHY

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

DRESSED IN WHITE FOREVER

CALLIN’ FOR THE BEST

THE BEST OUR FATHER OFFERED

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

 

I REMEMBER CANDLES IN THE WINDOW

THEY WERE FLASHIN’ THROUGH THE NIGHT

IN EVERY ROOM THERE’S AN UPSTAIRS

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

DRESSED IN WHITE FOREVER

CALLIN’ FOR THE BEST

THE BEST OUR FATHER OFFERED

IN MY MIND ALL DRESSED IN WHITE

 

 

“DIRT ON YOUR HANDS”

(JARED TYLER, MONTY HOLMES)

 

 

SHE SAID “BOY GO GET THAT SHOVEL

WE NEED WORMS FOR THE COFFEE CAN

IF YOU WANNA GO FISHIN’

YOU GOTTA GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

 

I KNOW YOU LIKE MY TATORS

STRAIGHT FROM MY FRYIN’ PAN

WELL SOMEBODY HAD TO DIG EM

AND THEY GOT A LITTLE DIRT ON THEIR HANDS

THEY GOT A LITTLE DIRT ON THEIR HANDS”

 

I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN

   BUT NOW I UNDERSTAND

   GRANDMA TAUGHT ME ALL I NEED TO NOW TO BE A MAN

     YOU GOTTA GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

   GET A LITTLE DIRT GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

 

WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES  I SEE HER SMILE

 

          I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN

          BUT NOW I UNDERSTAND

          GRANDMA TAUGHT ME ALL I NEED TO KNOW TO BE A MAN

          YOU GOTTA GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

          GET A LITTLE DIRT GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

          GET A LITTLE DIRT GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

 

SHE SAID “SON I HATE TO LEAVE YOU

BUT I’M HEADIN’ TO THE PROMISE LAND

WHEN YOU SEND ME TO HEAVEN

YOU’RE GONNA GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS

YOU’RE GONNA GET A LITTLE DIRT ON YOUR HANDS”

 

 

 

“HEART WIDE OPEN”

(Jared Tyler, Buddy Owens)

 

 

WHAT’S WITH ALL THIS TALK ABOUT THE END

THE TREES AND THE FLOWERS DON’T WORRY WITH THE WIND

A PART OF A CIRCLE THAT GOES ROUND AND BACK AGAIN

WHAT’S WITH ALL THIS TALK ABOUT THE END

 

EVERYDAY WE’RE LIVIN IN THE LIGHT

FLOWIN’ LIKE A RIVER THROUGH THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT

YOU CAN LOOK FOREVER AND NOT SEE IT WITH YOUR EYES

EVERYDAY WE’RE CLOSER TO THE LIGHT

 

PEOPLE KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON

HEART WIDE OPEN

LOVE IS ALL WE REALLY ARE

KEEP ON HOPIN’  HEART WIDE OPEN

 

IS THERE REALLY ANYTHING TO FEAR

IS MY OWN WORST ENEMY LOOKIN’ IN THE MIRROR

WHEN I LOVE MYSELF THE DEVIL SOMEHOW DISAPPEARS

IS THERE REALLY ANYTHING TO FEAR

 

PEOPLE KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON

HEART WIDE OPEN

LOVE IS ALL WE REALLY ARE

KEEP ON HOPIN’  HEART WIDE OPEN

HEART WIDE OPEN

 

 

 

“WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW”

(DIXIE MICHELL)

 

I RECALL THE LOVE WE HAD

AND OFTEN THINK OF YOU

I GUESS YOU KNOW YOU LEFT ME FEELIN’ BLUE

I’VE TRIED TO SMILE AND NOT BE SAD

BEGIN MY LIFE ANEW

YET I FIND MY THOUGHTS COME BACK TO YOU

 

SO I COME HOME PROMPTLY AFTER WORK

AND DINE IN SOLITUDE

THEN I TURN THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW

TO PUT ME IN THE MOOD

 

AND I GO WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

WHILE I’M HUMMIN’ MY FAVORITE TUNE

I’M WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

WHEN I’M ALL ALONE IN MY ROOM

I FEEL CLOSE TO YOU WHEN I’M DANCING

THOUGH IT’S ONLY MY SHADOW I SEE

SO I’M WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

I’M WISHING THAT YOU WERE WITH ME

 

I’M WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

WHILE I’M HUMMIN’ MY FAVORITE TUNE

I’M WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

WHEN I’M ALL ALONE IN MY ROOM

I FEEL CLOSE TO YOU WHEN I’M DANCING

THOUGH IT’S ONLY MY SHADOW I SEE

SO I’M WALTZING AROUND WITH MY SHADOW

I’M WISHING THAT YOU WERE WITH ME

 

 

“GWENDOLYN”

(Jared Tyler)

 

I REMEMBER DRIVIN’ ON THE TISDALE

ON A WEDNSDAY AFTERNOON

GOIN TO SEE MS. GWENDOLYN

AND BRING HER FISH FOR 2 OR 3

JUST GWENDOLYN AND ME

 

SWEET POTATO IN THE MORNIN’

BEANS AND A HAMBONE TOO

FRESH FRIED CRAPPIE IN THE EVENIN’

AND WE PICK OURSELVES A TUNE OR 3

JUST GWENDOLYN AND ME

 

          SHE GREW HERSELF A GARDEN

          WAY BACK IN 65

          HER GREAT GRANDCHILDREN

          ARE KEEPING IT ALIVE

 

WE CONJURED UP A LITTLE DIXIE

HONOLULU TO NEW ORLEANS

THEN WE GOT A LITTLE TRIPPY

TALKIN SHROOMS AND A LITTLE WEED FOR 3

JUST GWENDOLYN AND ME

WE CONJURED UP A LITTLE DIXIE

HONOLULU ALL THE WAY TO NEW ORLEANS

 

          SHE GREW HERSELF A GARDEN

          WAY BACK IN 65

          NOW HER GREAT GRANDCHILDREN

          ARE KEEPING IT ALIVE

 

I REMEMBER DRIVIN’ ON THE TISDALE

ON A WEDNSDAY AFTERNOON

GOIN TO SEE MS. GWENDOLYN

AND BRING HER FISH FOR 2 OR 3

 

 

 

“LUCKY I AM”

(JARED TYLER, JAMIE KINDLEYSIDE)

 

BIG OLE SUN SETTIN’ DOWN

30 MILES TO THE EDGE OF TOWN

RED TAIL FLYIN HIGH

NOT A WORRY IN THE SKY

DRIVIN TO SEE A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE

 

I DON’T HAVE THAT MANY NOW

OH THE STORIES WE COULD TELL

SOME ARE RESTING IN THE EARTH

THAT’S HOW I KNOW ITS WORTH

DRIVIN TO SEE A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE

 

          IF YOU CAN COUNT YOUR FRIENDS

          ON ONE GOOD HAND

          COUNT YOURSELF  A LUCKY MAN

          AND LUCKY I AM

          LUCKY I AM

 

I LEFT THE PAIN AT HOME

AND NOW I DRIVE ALONE

WITH ONE HAND ON THE WHEEL

PAST THE FLOWERS ON THE HILL

DRIVIN’ TO SEE A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE

 

          IF YOU CAN COUNT YOUR FRIENDS

          ON ONE GOOD HAND        

          COUNT YOURSELF A LUCKY MAN

          AND LUCKY I AM

          LUCKY I AM

 

 

 

“FORT GIBSON LAKE”

(JARED TYLER, BUDDY OWENS )

 

MY GRANDMA AND GRANDPA FISHIN’ OFF THE DOCK

A BOX FULL OF WHEATIES AND STRAWBERRY POP

YOU ROLL UP A DOUGH BALL TO CATCH YOU A CARP

ALL THE MEMORIES I KNOW THEM BY HEART

 

THE OLD TIMERS TAUGHT ME TO FISH WITH A JIG

OVER A WILLOW TREE TIED TO A BRICK

THEY SAID SON IN A BRUSHPILE IS WHERE YOU MUST BE

IF YOU WANNA CATCH A BIG OLE CRAPPIE

         

          YOU TAKE THE WAGONER/ COWETA ON MUSKOGEE TURNPIKE

          IF YOU’RE COMIN’ THE BACK WAY TAKE OLD 69

          HURRY DADDY GOTTA GET THERE

          I CAN’T HARDLY WAIT

          I’VE GONE TO HEAVEN ON FORT GIBSON LAKE

 

THE SAND BASS ARE RUNNIN’ IN THE SUMMER OR THE SPRING

YOU CAN TROLL WITH A SPINNER  DAMN NEAR ANYTHING

ALL THE WAY UP FROM FLATROCK TO WHITEHORN COVE

YOU CAN CATCH EM TILL YOU CAN’T REEL NO MORE

 

          TAKE THE WAGONER/ COWETA ON MUSKOGEE TURNPIKE

          IF YOU’RE COMIN’ THE BACK WAY TAKE OLD 69

          HURRY DADDY GOTTA GET THERE

          I CAN’T HARDLY WAIT

          I’VE GONE TO HEAVEN ON FORT GIBSON LAKE

 

I CAN STILL SEE DEAR MOMMA WITH A POLE IN HER HAND

OLD CHICKEN LIVERS TREBLE HOOK ON THE END

A CHANNEL, A FLATHEAD, A MUD OR A BLUE

SHE COULD CLEAN EM AND FRY EM FOR YOU

 

          YOU TAKE THE WAGONER/ COWETA ON MUSKOGEE TURNPIKE

          IF YOU’RE COMIN’ THE BACK WAY    TAKE OLD 69

          HURRY DADDY    GOTTA GET THERE

          I CAN’T HARDLY WAIT

          I’VE GONE TO HEAVEN ON FORT GIBSON LAKE

          I GO TO HEAVEN ON FORT GIBSON LAKE

 

 

“A LITTLE TONIGHT”

(Jared Tyler)

 

I WANNA DO WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY

I’LL TAKE MY CHANCE ON A NICE CLEAN SHOT

AS I MAKE MY WAY THROUGH THE WILDERNESS

IN THE END THAT’S ALL I GOT

 

          LIFE DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN

          LOVE DON’T MAKE IT RIGHT

          YOU CAN LOVE WHAT KILLS YOU

          I GUESS I’LL DIE A LITTLE TONIGHT

 

EVERY SINCE I WAS A CHILD

I DID MY BEST TO FIT RIGHT IN

IT WAS HARD IT GOT OLD AND PAINFUL

AND IT DAMN SURE MADE NO SENSE

 

          LOVE DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN

          LIFE DON’T MAKE IT RIGHT

          YOU CAN LIVE RIGHT THROUGH WHAT KILLS YOU

          GUESS I’LL LIVE A LITTLE TONIGHT

 

ALL I HAVE IS IN THIS MOMENT

AIN’T NO PAST OR FUTURE HERE

AS I LISTEN TO THE QUIETNESS

OH THE SOUND IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR

 

          LIFE DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN

          LOVE DON’T MAKE IT RIGHT

          YOU CAN LOVE WHAT KILLS YOU

          I GUESS I’LL DIE A LITTLE TONIGHT

 

          LOVE DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN

          LIFE DON’T MAKE IT RIGHT

          YOU CAN LIVE RIGHT THROUGH WHAT KILLS YOU

          GUESS I’LL LIVE A LITTLE TONIGHT

“NORWAY”

(Jared Tyler)

 

THE SNOW MELTS HIGH IN NORWAY

RUSHIN’ DOWN SCREAMIN’ LOUD

I CAN HEAR IT FROM MY DOORWAY

HITTIN’ ROCKS FLOWIN’ PROUD’

 

THE BUDS ON THE TREES TURNIN’ TO LEAVES

THE BIRDS ARE A COURTIN’

A NEW MOUNTAIN SONG

SPRING’S A COMIN’ ON

 

I CAN SEE FOREVER HERE IN NORWAY

MORE STARS I’VE EVER KNOWN

RIGHT FROM MY CABIN DOORWAY

SO PEACEFULLY ALONE

 

THE WIND THROUGH THE PINES

THE CHILL OF THE NIGHT

THE MOON SHE IS SMILING

A NEW MOUNTAIN SONG

SPRINGS A COMIN’ ON

 

          I GET THIS FELLIN’ I BELONG HERE

          LIKE MY BLOOD IS IN THE HILLS

          MAYBE SOMEDAY I WILL LIVE HERE

          BUT ONLY IF YOU WILL -ONLY IF YOU WILL

 

THE PEOPLE THEY ARE KIND HERE

GOOD NATURE IN THEIR HEARTS

THE WATER IS CLEAN AND CLEAR

EVERYBODY HAS A PART

 

STANDIN’ ON THE GROUND I CAN FEEL IT NOW

THE DEEPEST OF HISTORY

LIKE AN OLD MOUNTAIN SONG

SPRINGS A COMIN’ ON

 

          I GET THIS FELLIN’ I BELONG HERE

          LIKE MY BLOOD IS IN THE HILLS

          MAYBE SOMEDAY I WILL LIVE HERE

          BUT ONLY IF YOU WILL -ONLY IF YOU WILL

 

THE SNOW MELTS HIGH IN NORWAY

FROM MY HEART FLOWIN’ OUT

SOON I’LL BE HEADIN YOUR WAY

OKLAHOMA I AM BOUND

 

THE BIRDS WILL BE SINGIN’ I WILL BE SINGING

A NEW MOUNTAIN SONG

BABY I DO LOVE YOU  AND THE SPRINGS A COMIN’ ON

 

“LOVE OF YOU”

(Jared Tyler, Jamie Kindleyside)

 

TWINKLIN’ STARS AND A HALF A MOON

FULL OF LIGHT  THE LOVE OF YOU

I LAY DOWN THE SUN IS NEAR

MY HEART IS FULL  WITH THE LOVE OF YOU

 

          THE LOVE OF YOU  GETS ME THROUGH

          WHEN I’M BLUE  THE LOVE OF YOU
