When the young girls start to dance
At the rock and roll shows
Heaven knows they're making love to you
And it's a young man's chance, go on and dance
You've got your reasons too, the girls been looking at you

[Chorus:]
Dance, dance, so much romance gets lost from staying alone
Dance dance you've got all night go on you can take this song
And dance dance dance

So my girl came to dance at the rock and roll show
And you know she's making love to me
I knew from her first glance I'd take a chance
And now I'm feeling free that girl will only dance with me

[Chorus]

(L.Goshorn/T.Goshorn)

I used to wait for the sun to come out in the mornin
I used to wait for your face to appear in my doorway
Afraid I can't wait any longer this time alone has helped me grow stronger
Here's a message for you you know what to do how to find me

How many times have you seen me outside your window
How many years can I keep it alive without reason
You should have told me tried to explain it
Now it's too late and we can't rearrange it
You have nothin to say it's better this way you remind me

There's no reason to try now... I guess it's goodbye now
You have nothin to say it's better this way you remind me

There's no reason to try now... I guess it's goodbye now
You have nothin to say it's better this way try to find me

. . .


(Reilly/Loe/Perry)

We'd like another round of drinks bartender
And would you please take all the empties away
My new found friend and I will soon be leaving
And we don't have far to go... even though it's all the way

It must be gettin' late I'm seein' double
And I've spent the last five dollars of my pay
Gettin' home from here won't be no trouble
Cause we don't have far to go.. even though it's all the way

Well I can feel you touch my hand beneath the table
It tells me things that words would never say
I would like to carry on this thing we started
And the want to in your eyes says you might stay
The mornin' light won't find you broken hearted
And we don't have far to go... even though it's all the way

Now we've come from bein' lost and lonely strangers
To a whole new understanding of what each other needs
Well we're almost there it's just around the corner
And the night has almost faded into today
Now I promise I will love you more tomorrow
And we don't have far to go... even though it's all the way
No we don't have far to go... even though it's all the way

Everything it's movin' so fast there's nothin' left that's built to last
Children growin' up when they're ten and old folks bein' children again
I think I'd like to slow it down move one hundred miles from town
I think that I might like it just fine
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time
I think that I might even learn to settle down
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time

You can tell that I'm doin' good yeah I'm livin' out in Hollywood
But every time that I turn around I find I'm sleepin' in another town
I think I'd like to slow it down move one hundred miles from town
I think that I might like it just fine
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time
I think that I might even learn to settle down
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time

It ain't that I don't like the money I just don't like people callin' me honey
And even though it don't pay the rent a vacation would be heaven sent
I think I'd like to slow it down... move one hundred miles from town
I think that I might like it just fine
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time
I think that I might even learn to settle down
Livin' each day at a time.......... Livin' each day at a time
Livin' each day at a time

(M.Reilly/L.Goshorn)

I wonder if shes lookin good wel I guess she should it hasnt been that long ago
I wonder does she think of me just bein free an all the things she had to know
Think I'll call her up she'll just be wakin' up
Good morning wife you're sleepy eyed go back to bed you're way too high

But I don't wanna fade away... take me back to yesterday
I don't wanna fade away you'll be lookin back at me til there's nothin left to see

All to ask if you were free can we meet for maybe just an hour or so?
No I'm all tied up tonight oh well alright but then I really have to go
I don't wanna stay there's nothing more to say
I don't know what we did was wrong it's over now it's been too long

I don't wanna fade away... take me back to yesterday
I don't wanna fade away you'll be lookin' back at me til there's nothin left to see

Won't you even try how can you just let me die
I can't believe you're goin' home it's empty and I'm all alone

I don't wanna fade away... take me back to yesterday
I don't wanna fade away you'll be lookin' back at me til there's nothin left to see

I don't wanna fade away... take me back to yesterday
I don't wanna fade away you'll be lookin' back at me til there's nothin left to see

I don't wanna fade away... please take me back to yesterday
I don't wanna fade away you'll be lookin' back at me til there's nothin left to see

I guess that you just have to know what it feels like
One of us keeps feeling so incomplete
Shiftin' directions like November blowing in the street
And turnin' and changin' and givin' up arrangin'
The woman is the one I always need

Tornado warning
Came in this morning
Tornado warning

Well all my life I've expected only the best of things
Now I see your clouds and they are appearing
And these strange sensations have such an oh so familiar ring
Rain on the window and tears on my pillow
The wind in my mind keeps a-blowin'

Tornado warning
Came in this morning
Tornado warning

The wind is blowing strong. we must hold on
To wait another day... we must go on

This girl, oh my gosh, looks like the one for me
I'm givin' up all my freedom, completely
This whirlwind that we've been livin' keeps us far apart
The changing, believing.. it's not hard to love you
If I haven't forgotten where to start

Tornado warning
Came in this morning
Tornado warning

. . .


(L.Goshorn)

Whatcha say we go down a hundred miles or two
Catfishin' at whiskey slew
Bring along some wet your throat fried chicken too
Catfishin' at whiskey slew

.... We could stay all night long the bullfrog band will sing it's song
And even if the fish don't bite you wake up in the mornin' and ya feel just right

How'd ya like to go for a ride out where the sky is blue
Catfishin' at whiskey slew
We could watch the sun come up or sleep right through
Catfishin' at whiskey slew

How'd ya like to go for a ride out where the sky is blue
Catfishin' at the whiskey slew
Bring along some twistables fried chicken too
Catfishin' at the whiskey slew
Catfishin' at the whiskey slew

. . .


(M.Reilly/L.Goshorn)

Well you're down and out, wonderin' why things aren't the way they used to be
You're complainin', tryin' to explain how things went wrong to me
Say you need a friend who'll lend a helpin' hand and so you come to me
And if you're lookin' for some help, help yourself

Well you're weary, you're tired of everybody walkin' over you
Go get drunk again, sit and wonder why your friends all laugh at you
'bout to give it up even though you know there's so much more to do
And you don't need nobody else to help yourself

Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself

Gettin' better, lookin' like things finally start to go your way
And you've figured out exactly what it is that you've been tryin' to say
Sun is comin' up, with the mornin' comes the dawnin' of brighter day
You didn't need nobody else to help yourself

Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself

. . .


(G.Powell)

The sun left suddenly without saying so
The night softly took his place
I'm not the man I once thought I was
It's no disgrace living in the sorrows of the hours in this place

San Antonio... can't get hold of you
As the water's flowin' through.. color painted pictures show
You're a lady of endless lovers

We were standing next to the street and now embrace
The sidewalk wouldn't let us go
You got so silent while I was talkin'
About picasso about the distances between friends before they go

San Antonio... can't get hold of you
As the water's flowin' through.. color painted pictures show
You're a lady of endless lovers

San Antonio... can't get hold of you
As the water's flowin' through.. color painted pictures show
You're a lady of endless lovers
You're a lady of endless lovers
You're a lady of endless lovers

(T.Goshorn)

Ballroom women my six guns and the bible
The only pleasures that I have ever known
Ol' bandana to keep that sweat from rollin' in my eyes
As I head out on that lonely desert trail

All the lonesome cowboys
Winds are blowin' then they're showin' in their way
Face full of dust for a pocket full of gold
Makes it just a little easier to live that way

The campfire flickers in the moonlight
The sound of an old familiar song
But the boys won't admit as the sadness fills their bones
That it's lonely yes it's lonely livin' alone

All the lonesome cowboys
Winds are blowin' then they're showin' in their way
Face full of dust for a pocket full of gold
Makes it just a little easier to live that way

All the lonesome cowboys
Winds are blowin' then they're showin' in their way
Face full of dust for a pocket full of gold
Makes it just a little easier to live that way

All the lonesome cowboys
Winds are blowin' then they're showin' in their way
Face full of dust for a pocket full of gold
Makes it just a little easier to live that way

All the lonesome cowboys
Winds are blowin' then they're showin' in their way
Face full of dust for a pocket full of gold
Makes it just a little easier to live that way
