(L.Goshorn/P.Scanlon/T.Goshorn)

There's a place in the middle where I'm sure we both can meet
If we just stop bein' so proud
The things in the past that we can't understand
Don't forget them don't regret them start all over again

Things have just gotta get better but you know it all comes in time
If we can find a place to meet then maybe things would be just fine

Things have just gotta get better but you know it all comes in time
If we can find a place to meet then maybe things would be just fine

There's a place in the middle where I'm sure we both can meet
If we just stop bein' so proud

. . .


As I drove down on 65, I was cruisin' down that old grapevine
Well, I must have been doin' at least about 95
Well out there on the side of the road all broke down and
Who do you think was standin' around
But the greatest country singer alive!

I'll fix your flat tire Merle
Don't ya get your sweet country pickin' fingers all covered with erl
Cause you're a honky, I know, but Merle you got soul
And I'll fix your flat tire Merle

Well I hear you had an adventurous youth, makin' love in a telephone booth
And I even hear you did a little stretch in jail
But now you got a big ranch house with a bar
And eight, nine, ten of them fancy cars
And every other little check comin' in the mail

I'll fix your flat tire Merle
Don't ya get your sweet country pickin' fingers all covered with erl
Cause you're a honky, I know, but Merle you got soul
And I'll fix your flat tire Merle

Now I heard all them records ya did, makin' fun of us long haired kids
And now ya know we don't care what ya think... Merle,
If you're gonna call the world your home
Ya know you're gonna have to get out and get stoned
An' it's better with a joint than with a drink, I think

So I'll fix your flat tire Merle
Don't ya get your sweet country pickin' fingers all covered with erl
Cause you're a honky, I know, but Merle you got soul
And I'll fix your flat tire Merle
So I'll fix your flat tire Merle

Bolen-Reilly

Yesterday... you led me to believe
That the only love you had was you an' me
You made it look so cool... baby I'm no fool so

Goodbye so long... I can't hang on
Goodbye so long... baby I'm gone

I was wrong... to give you all my love
'cause I found out you're the woman I can't trust
You said our love could be so fine... now I see the truth behind the lies so

Goodbye so long... I can't hang on
Goodbye so long... baby I'm gone

You're always leavin' you know when I'll be there when you come home
You're so deceivin' you got me feelin' like I'm all alone

No more... I've taken it long enough
You'd best be on your way I've found another love
Don't look back you're outta time You never were a friend of mine so

Goodbye so long... I can't hang on
Goodbye so long... baby I'm gone

Goodbye so long... I can't hang on
Goodbye so long... baby I'm gone

Goodbye... Goodbye so long
Goodbye... Goodbye so long
Goodbye... Goodbye so long
Goodbye... Goodbye so long...

Well won't somebody tell me what I did last night
I can't seem to recomember a thing
Where's Louise did she come home alright
I lost my wallet and my new diamond ring

Woah Louise baby please won't you talk to me
You know I'm not a beggin' man bit you got me down on my knees
Gee I would apologize if I only could
You know I don't know what I did but I know it ain't good

Won't somebody tell me what it was I did last night
Well the last thing I remember I was down on Union Street
I was having a drink with some girlfriends of Louise

One said "hey baby let's give it a shot"
She said "just show me what you got baby I hear that you're hot"

Won't somebody tell me what it was I did last night
Well won't somebody tell me what I did last night
I can't seem to recomember a thing
Where's Louise did she come home alright

She's got my wallet and my new diamond ring
Woah Louise baby please won't you talk to me
You know I'm not a beggin' man bit you got me down on my knees
Hey baby come on let's give it a go
You know I bet you to win and you did not even show

Won't somebody tell me what it was I did last night
Now will somebody tell me what it was I did last night

(W.P.Bennett)

Cold and lonely all alone, Lord I wish I had a hole to climb in
The summer's warm rain sure ain't comin lord it seems to me I'm thumbin
Once again

Tired and hungry once again, the sleet keeps comin' down on top of me
I wish that Lord I had a long coat an' a hat so I could see

Standin' by a midnight highway excuse me sir are you goin' my way
On an' on the endless white line goes
No, that coulda been me you're listenin' to on your radio
I could been warm inside or some place instead of standin here in th snow

Sunny days are what I pray for, Sunshine burnin' down on my skin
Get on south to the teason mountains Lord it seems to me I'm thumbin'
Once again

Standin' by a midnight highway excuse me sir are you goin' my way
On an' on the endless white line goes
No, that coulda been me you're listenin' to on your radio
I could been warm inside or some place instead of standin here in th snow

Standin' by a midnight highway excuse me sir are you goin' my way
On an' on the endless white line goes
No, that coulda been me you're listenin' to on your radio
I could been warm inside or some place instead of standin here in th snow

Standin' by a midnight highway excuse me sir are you goin' my way
On an' on the endless white line goes
On an' on the endless white line... goes
On an' on the endless white line goes

. . .


(P.Bolen/M.Reilly)

Don't look at me that way restless woman
I wasn't the one who turned my back on you
Our love is the price you paid for freedom
Before you put the blame on me you really ought to think it through

Oh... you threw it all away
When you went walkin' out the door
Oh... you think about yesterday
Will you ever find out... what you been lookin' for

I thought I knew you restless woman
You didn't have to leave to show me I was wrong
Now you're still searchin' for the answer
Suddenly you realize... it's takin' much too long

Oh... you threw it all away
When you went walkin' out the door
Oh... you think about yesterday
Will you ever find out... what you been lookin' for

You're chasin' a shadow restless woman
The times we had are gone, it won't be back again
There's too much distance in between us
You need to find another love... and let it take you in

Oh... you threw it all away
When you went walkin' out the door
Oh... you think about yesterday
Will you ever find out... what you been lookin' for

Oh... you threw it all away
When you went walkin' out the door
Oh... you think about yesterday
An' I hope you find out... what you been lookin' for

Restless woman
Restless woman
Restless woman

(Vince Gill)

I'm blue Lord I feel so sad
Well I've lost the best thing that I had
She left me and went away and now she's gone
Lord it's cold in this world alone

Well I thought that our love was strong
Didn't know that I was so wrong
She told me she loved me and never go
Lord she's gone why I'll never know

[Chorus:]
Bound to ride on the misery train
It's cruel to ride in the blue and lonesome rain
Bound to ride on the misery train
Bound to ride on the misery train

You're on my mind every single day
I can't believe you treated me this way
Misery train is comin' down the track
Get on board I won't be coming back

[Chorus]

. . .

Drifting Too Far From the Shore

[No lyrics]

. . .


I can see why you think you belong to me
I never tried to make you think or let you see one thing for yourself
But now you're off with someone else and I'm alone
You see, I thought that I might keep you for my own

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Don't you think the time is right for us to find
All the things we thought weren't proper could be right in time?
And can you see which way we should turn, together or alone?
I can never see what's right or what is wrong
Yeah, you take too long to see

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Well, now, Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Now it's come to what you want, you've had your way
And all the things you thought before just faded into gray
And can you see that I don't know if it's you or if it's me?
If it's one of us, I'm sure we both will see
Won't you look at me and tell me

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I, longer if I do, yeah, now

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

I keep falling in and out of love with you
Falling in and out of love with you
Don't know what I'm gonna do
I keep falling in and out of love with you

. . .


I make my rounds of the country churches
Playing my guitar for free
My repertoire is one hundred ninety
Songs to God's glory

[Chorus:]
Now I'm pickin' to beat the devil
And you know he's on my tail
But the Lord is in my fingers
And He won't let me fail

I found myself in a roadside barroom
I was drinking my time away
Kentucky woman and Tennessee whiskey
It's gonna be hell to pay

A worn out chevy and a beat up Martin is all I'll ever own
My worthless life is dedicated to bringing God's children home

[Chorus]

Fourteen songs and a temperance sermon that's what a good meal buys
For a little extra there's a guitar solo called Reward In The Sky

[Chorus]

. . .


Well, that'll be the day when you say goodbye
That'll be the day when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave me, you know it's a lie, oh but
That'll be the day when I die

You give me all your lovin' and all your turtle dovin'
Your hugs and kisses and your money too
You say you want me baby but then you tell me maybe
That someday that I'll be blue, well

That'll be the day when you say goodbye
That'll be the day when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave me, you know it's a lie, oh but
That'll be the day when I die

When cupid shot his dart he shot it at your heart
So if we ever part then I'll leave you
You say you want to hold me but then you tell me boldly
That someday well I'll be blue, well

That'll be the day when you say goodbye
That'll be the day when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave me, you know it's a lie, oh but
That'll be the day when I die

That'll be the day...
That'll be the day...
That'll be the day...
That'll be the day...

. . .


(P.Bolen)

It's been a long time comin', I guess you know now
That it's not like it was before
Cause you been lyin' an' cheatin' a little too long
For me to take it from you anymore

It doesn't matter... where you are, you don't care how I might feel
I'm just a shadow you don't wanna see

Well I can't help wonderin' what you're gonna do
When you find somebody else
An' try to play your game like you did with me
You're gonna wind up by yourself

Well, I'm... livin' it alone, that's the way I want it to be
Aw, livin' it alone, there's no other way I can see
Yes I'm livin' it alone, that's the way I want it to be

Well, I'm... livin' it alone, that's the way I want it to be
Aw, livin' it alone, there's no other way I can see
Yes I'm livin' it alone, that's the way I want it to be
Aw, livin' it alone, there's no other way I can see

. . .


Soon it will be time to go
I don't want to leave I guess you know
Maybe something new will come up
And I can come home

For just a few more days
Get off this

[Chorus:]
Two lane highway
Goin' my way
Movin' fast
Two lane highway
Is takin' me home
Home at last

You don't want me sleeping in
You turn around I'm back again
I guess this time I'm really gone
But it don't seem right
I've been up all night
On this

[Chorus]

. . .

I've Just Seen a Face

[No lyrics]

. . .


(Vince Gill)

The cold wind was blowin' through your hair
That's when I saw you, saw you standin' there

Can't hold back... the love I have for you. Gotta give you all I've got
What else can I do?... What can I do?

Met you at the doorstep, said won't you come inside?
Hope this lovely lady, take me for a ride

Can't hold back... the love I have for you. Gotta give you all I've got
What else can I do?... What can I do?

I see your glass is empty an' I know what's on your mind
Wrap your arms around me, let me make you mine

Can't hold back... the love I have for you. Gotta give you all I've got
What else can I do?... What can I do?
