(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Troy Verges)

If I'm not over you by the time I get to Georgia
Then I guess I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time when I'd do anything for you
But this time, baby, I won't turn around

I always wanted to get married, and I thought you were the one
But you never, ever asked me, and I was tired of hangin' on
You know a girl can only be let down so many times before she runs
And now this little bitty town's only got room for one of us, yeah

You always said I'd never leave, and if I did I wouldn't go far
So I know how I must look, with my tank 'a gas and beat up heart
Well baby, I'm gone for good, you can count on that
Yeah, I'm gonna keep headin' west 'til I'm too far gone to come back, yeah

And If I'm not over you by the time I get to Georgia
Then I guess I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time when I'd do anything for you
But this time, baby, oh I won't turn around

I only got ten miles to go before I cross the state line
I can feel my hands shakin'
'Cause they usually turn the wheel around about this time
I heard that same ol' voice inside, I had to drown it out
So I found me a radio station playin' something fast
And I turned it up real loud

And If I'm not over you by the time I get to Georgia
Then I guess I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time when I'd do anything for you
But this time, baby, oh I won't turn around

There was a time when I'd do anything for you
But this time, baby, oh I won't turn around
No, I won't turn around

If I'm not over you by Georgia, then I'll head to Alabama
Roll on to Mississippi, or maybe Lou'siana
I'll drive all the way to California
Oh, I won't turn around
No, I won't turn around
No, I won't turn around
No, I won't turn around (turn around, turn around)
I won't, I won't turn around, (no) I won't turn around

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson)

You always had a way with words
So you can just imagine when I heard
You siad she would be your wife
Yeah it cut me like a knife
It wasn't very long ago
I was the one that you would hold
All through the night
Yeah so this just doesn't seem right
I could try and win you back
But I'm the one who left
I guess I gotta accept
That now I'm

Just another girl
Yeah I'm just another girl
Hoah,I'm used to be the queen
I used to the one who rocked your world
And now I am just another girl

Hoah
Sure looks like you adjusted well
For somone who swore there was no one else
And I couldn't be replaced
That's obviously not the case
Peel away my coat of pride
You're bound to see the sting
Over some little ring
Now I'm

Just another girl
Yeah I'm just another girl
Hoah I used to be the queen
I used to be the one who rocked your world
And now I'm just another girl

Another time (another time)
Another place (another place)
Another girl, another face

Just another girl
Yeah I'm just another girl
Hoah I used to be the queen
I used to be the one who rocked your world
And now I'm just another girl

Another girl, another girl
Hooh

(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Marc Beeson)

There must have been a reason
We first got together
There must have been a reason
We used to talk forever
It's hard to see it now
Cause it's easier to think of what went wrong

I could keep pointin' fingers
I could stay mad as hell
Just let my anger linger
But as far as I can tell
I've just got to let it go
If I wanna move on

So I'll think about how you made me laugh
Not think about how you made me cry
Think about how we both swore
We'd love each other 'till we died
Forget about who's to blame
Just remember your smilin' face
Well it's a choice I've had to make
So I'll think of you that way

Hoah
Seems like I paint you now
In colors of forgiveness
I lost the pain somehow
And in it's place there is this
Part of me that sees you in the light
I saw you in before

So I'll think about how you made me laugh
Not think about how you made me cry
Think about how we both swore we'd love each other till we died
Forget about who's to blame
Just remember your smilin' face
Well it's a choice I've had to make
So I'll think of you that way

Hey
So I'll think about how you mafe me laugh
Not think about how you made me cry
Think about how we both swore
We'd love each other till we died
Forget about who's to blame
Just remember your smilin' face
Well it's a choice I've had to make (choice I've had to make)
Well it's a choice I've had to make
So I'll think of you that way
hey, I'll think of you that way
I'll think of you that way

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Tommy Polk)

I'm through playin' it safe
It's time I laid it on the line
I wanna dance out on the edges
And get a little reckless in my mind
Cause even a heart that's locked away
Can find a way to break
I won't hide it now
I'm through makin' that mistake

One fall, that's all
I don't know who it's gonna be
Out there, somewhere
Someone is waitin' just for me
No pain, no gain
There's not a chance that I won't take
'Cause love is always worth the ache

Love's like a Vegas wheel
You've got to spin to win the prize
(you know you got to, you know you got to,
you know you got to spin to win the prize)
But it's a gamble worth the takin'
You say a prayer and then you roll the dice
(you say a prayer and, you say a prayer
and, you say a prayer and, and you roll the dice)
Well they say it's hard to beat the odds
I say it's harder not to try
I will play the game
Do what it takes to get it right

One fall, that's all
I don't know who it's gonna be
Out there, somewhere
Someone is waiting just for me
No pain, no gain
There's not a chance that I won't take
'Cause love is always worth the ache

Well they say it's better to have loved and lost
Then to have never loved at all
Ah yeah yeah yeah

One fall, that's all
I don't know who it's gonna be
Out there, somewhere
Someone is waiting just for me
No pain, no gain
There's not a chance that I won't take
'Cause love is always worth the ache

(It's always, it's always, it's always)
Yeah it's always worth the ache
(It's always, it's always, it's always)
Oh love is worth the ache
(It's always, it's always, it's always)
Yeah love is always worth the ache
(It's always, it's always, it's always)
Yeah
You know there's not a chance I won't take
'Cause love is always worth the ache

. . .



I'm so scared that the way I feel,
Is written all over my face.
When you walk into the room,
I wanna find a hiding place.
We used to laugh, we used to hug, the way that old friends do.
But now, a smile and a touch of your hand,
Just makes me come unglued.
Such a contridiction, do I lie or tell the truth.
Is it fact or fiction,
Oh the way I feel for you.

So complicated, I'm so frustrated.
I wanna hold you close, I wanna push you away,
I wanna make you go, I wanna make you stay.
Should I say it? Should I tell you how I feel?
Oh, I want you to know.
But then again, I don't. It's so complicated.

Oh..just when I think I'm under control.
I think I finally got a grip.
Another friend tells me that,
My name is always on your lips.
They say I'm more than just a friend,
they say I must be blind.
Well, I admit that I've seen you watch me
from the corner of your eye.
Oh, It's so confusing. I wish you'd just confess.
But think of what I'd be losing,
if your answer wasn't yes.

So complicated I'm so frustrated,
I wanna hold you close, I wanna push you away,
I wanna make you go, I wanna make you stay.
Should I say it, should I tell you how I feel.
Oh I want you to know, but then again I don't, It's so complicated.

Oh, I hate it. 'Cuz I've waited.
So long for someone like you
Oh, what do I do.
Oh should I say it.
Should I tell you how I feel.
I want you to know, but then again I don't.
It's so complicated..
It's so complicated..
It's so complicated.
Ohh..

(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Tommy Polk)

Monday mornin' is such a rush
Here it is again sneakin' up on us
Uh-huh-huh yeah
This is the part you know I don't like
We say goodbye and then we kiss goodnight
Uh-huh-huh yeah
I know it's one o'clock
And we said you'd be gone by ten
So much for those eight hours
I swore that I'd get in

I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin' of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms
Cause I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go

We always say just one more kiss
But it always seems to never end like this
Uh-huh-huh yeah
A few dozen then a couple more
Before we know it it's after four
Uh-huh-huh yeah
I know tomorrow my best friend will be my coffee cup
Cause here we go again
Watchin' the sun come up

Yeah, I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin' of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms
Cause I don't want you to go
No baby, I don't want you to go

Hey
I know tomorrow my best friend will be my coffee cup
Cause here we go again
Watching the sun come up yeah

I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms

Cuz I don't want you to go
No baby I don't want you to go
I dont want you to go....
I dont want you to go....

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Troy Verges)

The sunlight on my shoulders
The smile on my face
My secret weapon, my favorite place
The reason my heart skips a beat
The broom that sweeps me off my feet

A gentle inspiration
My weary soul's salvation
The half that makes me whole
The gravity that grounds me
The arms I want around me
Never letting go

I've lived
I've lived enough
To know what is
And what's not
You are-you are

All the love I wanna make
Every breath I wanna take
The rush that's running down my spine
The touch that takes me every time

An innocent suduction
Oh I can't get enough and
I can't help but let it show
I lose all my composure
I'm totally exposed and
The reason I let go
Is....

I've lived
I've lived enough
I know what is
And what's not
You are-you are

My every hope
My every dream
You are my everything

I've lived yeah
I've lived enough
I know what is
And what's not
You are-you are-you are

The sunlight on my shoulders
The smile on my face
My secret weapon
My favorite place

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Kye Fleming/Mary Ann Kennedy)

There were forty little houses in a place they called High River
And everyone knew Tim since the day he was born
He was a little different
Some might call it slow
But when Nellie moved to town
She saw his heart of gold

They found each other and never spent another day apart
Whoever would have dreamed
In his quiet eyes she'd find the piece
To make her life complete

Oh you could say it was a work of art
Like someone took a brush and painted there hearts
Together they made such a beautiful thing
And oh if there was anything that they could do right
It was painting love in the perfect light
So we could see
That love is a masterpiece

Yeah
Well Tim always had a little trouble with letters and numbers
So Nellie paid the bills and read all the mail
No one worked harder for miles around
Tim was the best farmhand and Nellie was proud

A year went by of saving their nickels and dimes
They had a little boy
They named him Daniel
And he became there pride and joy

Oh you could say it was a work of art
Like someone took a brush and painted there hearts
Together they made such a beautiful thing
And oh if there was anything that they could do right
It was painting love in the perfect light
So we could see that love is a masterpiece

Everybody said that they were so close to heaven
That they didn't have far to go
Somehow it all made sense that they all went together
That night on that dark road

Oh you could say it was a work of art
Like someone took a brush and painted their hearts
Together they made such a beautiful thing
And oh if there was anything that they could do right
It was painting love in the perfect light
So we could see
That love is a masterpiece

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Love is a masterpiece
Yeah
Love is a masterpiece
Love is a masterpiece
Love is a masterpiece
Hooh
Love is a masterpiece
Love is a masterpiece

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Kim Carnes/Al Anderson)

Little bitty baby takes her first step
Out in the big ole world
Falls on her butt
And picks herself up
Daddy says that's my girl
You go to school
Subtraction and addition
You learn to give and take
Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
You're gonna make mistakes

It takes a little bit of this
Hoah with a little bit of that
A little bit of good
Yeah with a little bit of bad
You know that life's a contradiction
And you can't escape the fact
You gotta take a little bit of this
With a little bit of that

Hoah
Well two hearts and opposite attraction
It's just their luck
They fall in love
He wants it his way
And she wants it hers
Working out all that stuff

It takes a little bit of this
Hoah, with a little bit of that
A little bit of good
Yeah with a little bit of bad
You know that life's a contradiction
And you can't escape the fact
You gotta take a little bit of this
With a little bit of that

It all makes sense
Once you discover
You can't have one without
You can't have one without the other
It takes a little bit of this
Hoah with a little bit of that
Oh a little bit of good
Yeah with a little bit of bad

It takes a little bit of this
Hoah with a little bit of bad
A little bit of good
Yeah with a little bit of bad yeah
You know that life's a contradiction
And you can't escape the fact
You gotta take a little bit of this
With a little bit of that

Hoah yeah
A little bit of this
That this that
Hoah yeah
Oh yeah
A little bit of this
A little bit of that
A little bit of this
A little bit of that
Little bit of this

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Mary Danna)

Hoah

My married friends keep asking me
When I'll settle down
They tell me time is passing
And there's not to many good ones still around
I tell them I am not afriad to be alone
And there's no need to rush into something wrong

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer to you

You might be in Montana
Living in the hills
Or you might be in Virginia
Workin' in a mill
All I know is that I haven't found you yet
But who knows maybe we've already met

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer to you

Hoah
Everyday I pray that God will keep you safe
Cause I know your out there somewhere

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer
Yeah everyday is one day closer
Everyday is one day closer to you
Yeah hoah oh

. . .


(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Chuck Jones)

They gave you a corner room on the fifth floor
The city lights were like candy to a kid in a store
Like a king you'd lay in your bed so statefully
So thankful they gave you a room with scenery

You always were so healthy, so full of life
So seeing you so helpless just didn't seem right
And how you kept your head so high I'll never know
I guess you knew you had a better place to go
Now...

You've got a room with a view
A window to the world
You always had your sights set high
And now that you're gone
Your memory lives on
And I see you smiling in my mind
With angels as visitors dropping by
Your room with a view

I'll always miss you
I'll always feel the loss
I have to remind myself that you're better off
I gotta believe even through these tears of mine
Wherever you are there's a sun that always shines
And...

You've got a room with a view
A window to the world
You always had your sights set high
And now that you're gone
Your memory lives on
And I see you smiling in my mind
With angels as visitors dropping by
Your room with a view

With angels as viitors dropping by
Your room with a view
Hoah
