I'm crazy
crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy
crazy for feeling so blue

I know
you'd love me as long as you wanted
then someday
leave me for somebody new

(bridge)
worry
why do I let myself worry
wondring
what in the world did I do

crazy
for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for crying
I'm crazy for trying
I'm crazy for loving you

. . .


Touch me, touch the hand of a man
Who once owned all the world
And touch, me touch the arms
That once held all the charms
Of the world's sweetest girl
Touch me, maybe someday you may
Need to know how it feels when you lose
And so touch me, you'll know
How you feel with the blues

Watch me, watch the eyes
That have seen all the heartache
And pain in the land
And be thankful you're happy though
Standing so close to the world's bluest man
Don't forget me, take a good look
At someone who's lost everything he can lose
And then touch me and you'll know
How you'd feel with the blues

[ guitar ]

Don't forget me take a good look...

. . .


When I ran to the store with a penny,
And when youth was abundant and plenty,
Classify these as good times.
Good times.

When I rolled rubber tires in the driveway,
Pulled a purse, on a string, 'cross the highway,
Classify these as good times.
Good times.

Good times are comin', hummin', mmm
Good times are comin', hummin', mmm

Go to school, fight a war, workin' steady,
Meet a girl, fall in love, 'fore I'm ready,
Classify these as good times.
Good times.

Here I sit with a drink and a memory,
But I'm not cold, I'm not wet, and I'm not hungry,
So, classify these as good times.
Good times.

Good times are comin', hummin', mmm
Good times
Good times are comin', hummin', mmm

Miracles appear
In the strangest of places
Fancy meeting you here
The last time I saw you
Was just out of Houston
Sit down let me buy you a beer
Your presence is welcome
With me and my friend here
This is a hangout of mine
We come here quite often
And listen to music
Partaking of yesterday's wine
Yesterday's wine
I'm yesterday's wine
Aging with time
Like yesterday's wine
Yesterday's wine
We're yesterday's wine
Aging with time
Like yesterday's wine

You give the appearence
Of one widely travelled
I'll bet you've seen
Things in your time
So sit down beside me
And tell me your story
If you think
You'll like yesterday's wine
Yesterday's wine
We're yesterday's wine
Aging with time
Like yesterday's wine

[ guitar ]

Yesterday's wine
We're yesterday's wine
Aging with time
Like yesterday's wine

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

I'm drowning in a whiskey river,
Bathing my mem'ried mind in the wetness of its soul.
Feeling the amber current flowin' from my mind.
And warm an empty heart you left so cold.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

Instrumental break.

I'm drowning in a whiskey river,
Bathing my mem'ried mind in the wetness of its soul.
Feeling the amber current flowin' from my mind.
And warm an empty heart you left so cold.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

Can't go home if you're goin' by the mill
Cause the bridge's washed out
At the bottom of the hill
Big Creek's up Little Creek's level
Plow my corn with a double shovel
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

Sittin' in the window singin' to my love
Slop bucket fell from the window up above
Mule and the grasshopper eatin' ice cream
Mule got sick so they laid him on the green
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

[ guitar ]

Well you ought to see my Blue Eyed Sally
She lives away down on Shinbone Alley
Number on the gate the number on the door
The next house over is the grocery store
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

[ guitar ]

Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

It's not supposed to be that way you're supposed to know I love you
But it don't matter anyway if I can't be there to control you
Like the other little children you're gonna dream a dream or two
But be careful what you're dreamin' or soon your dreams'll be dreamin' you
It's not supposed to be that way you're supposed to know I love you
But it don't matter anyway if I can't be there to console you
When you go out to play this evenin' play with fire flies till they're gone
Then you rush to meet your lover and play with real fire till the dawn
But it's not supposed to be that way you're supposed to know I love you
But it don't matter anyway if I can't be there to console you
[ steel ]
When you go out to play this evenin'...

WILLIE NELSON:
In the twilight glow i see her
Blue eyes crying in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we'd never meet again

SHANIA TWAIN:
Love is like a dying ember
And only memories remain
And through the ages i'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain.

BOTH:
Someday when we meet up yonder
We'll stroll hand in hand again
In the land that knows no parting
For blue eyes crying in the rain.

A long time forgotten
are dreams that just felt by the way.
And the good life he promised
ain't what she's living to day.
But she never complains of
the bad times or bad things he's done
Lord.
She's just talks about the good times
they've had and all the good times to come.

She's a good hearted woman
in love with a good timin' man.
She loves him in spite of his ways
that she don't understand.
Through teardrops and laughter

they'll pass though his world hand in hand.
A good hearted woman
lovin' her good timin' man.

He likes the night life

the brightlights and good timin' friends.
when the party's all over
she welcome him back home again.
Lord knows she don't understand him
but she does the best that she can.
'Cause she's a good hearted woman
she loves her good timin' man.

She's a good hearted woman ...

Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

And maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your
Sweet love hasn't died
And give me
Give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied
Keep you satisfied

Little things I should have
Said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind....

. . .

Just To Satisfy You

[No lyrics]

. . .


Livin on the road my friend, is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath's as hard as kerosene
Weren't your momma's only boy, but her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams

Pancho was a bandit boss, his horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match you know in the desert down in Mexico
And nobody heard his dyin' words, ah but that's the way it goes

All the Federales say, "Could'a had him any day."
They only let him slip away, out of kindness, I suppose

Lefty can't sing the blues all night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south has ended up in Lefty's mouth
The day they laid poor Pancho low, Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go, there ain't nobody knows

All the Federales say, "Could'a had him any day"
They only let him slip away out of kindness, I suppose

The poets tell how Pancho fell, and Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet, and Cleveland's cold
And so the story ends we're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but save a few for Lefty too
He only did what he had to do, and now he's growing old

A few gray Federales say, they could'a had him any day
They only let him go so long, out of kindness, I suppose

. . .


I'm not trying to forget you anymore
I got back into remembering all the love we shared before
And I'd been trying to forget someone who my heart still adores
So I'm not trying to forget you anymore

You were someone who brought happiness into my life
and it did not last forever but that's all right
we were always more than lovers and I'm still your friend
And if I had the chance I'd do it all again

So I'm not trying to forget you anymore
I got back into remembering all the love we had before
And the best days of my life are still when you walk through that door
so I'm not trying to forget you anymore

. . .


(I'll always love you in my own peculiar way)
It would be a comfort just to know you never doubt me
Even though I give you cause most every day
Sometimes I think that you'd be better off without me
Although I love you in my own peculiar way
Don't doubt my love if sometimes my mind should wonder
To a suddenly remembered yesterday
Cause my mind could never stay too long away from you
I'll always love you in my own peculiar way
And though I may not always be the way you'd have me be
And though my faults may grow in number day by day
Let no one ever say that I've ever been untrue
I'll always love you in my own peculiar way
I'll always love you in my own peculiar way

. . .


Well, hello there
My, it's been a long, long time
How am I doing?
Oh, I guess that I'm doing fine
It's been so long now
But it seems now, that it was only yesterday
Gee, ain't it funny, how time slips away

How's your new love
I hope that he's doing fine
I heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time
Now, that's the same thing that you told me
Seems like just the other day
Gee, ain't it funny, how time slips away

I gotta go now
I guess I'll see you around
Don't know when though
Never know, when I'll be back in town
But remember, what I tell you
In time, your gonna pay
And it's surprising, how time slips away

. . .


When the evenin' sun goes down
You will find me hangin' 'round
Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life
But it's my life

Many people just like me
Dreamin' of old used-to-be's
Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life
Ah, but it's my life

Listen to the blues that they're playin'
Listen what the blues are sayin'

Life is just another scene
In this old world of broken dreams
Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life
But it's my life

Oh, the night life ain't no good life
Oh, but it's my life

Yeah, it's my life

The Rainbow Connection

[No lyrics]

. . .


When the world is crashing down
And you're left alone on shaky ground
It seems like losing hope's
The only way to cope

But you can turn around and see
That every precious memory
Is still inside of you
Just let it shine on through

Don't fade away
Nothing's what it seems
You're lost and in between
But you'll find yourself again
Don't fade away, don't fade away

Take your time and think it through
You've got everything in front of you
It's like a brand new page
Each and every day

Don't fade away
Nothing's what it seems
You're lost and in between
You'll find yourself again

Don't fade away
Hold on to your dreams
Through waves of suffering
The tide will turn again
Don't fade away

All that you've seen
All that you've done
Don't say it's over
You hold the key
Unlock the sun

Don't fade away
Nothing's what it seems
You're lost and in between
But you'll find yourself again

Don't fade away
Hold on to your dreams
Through waves of suffering
The tide will turn again

Don't fade away
Nothing's what it seems
And all that really means
Is that you'll find yourself again

Don't fade away
Hold on to your dreams
Through waves of suffering
Tide will turn again
Don't fade away

Don't fade away, don't fade away
Don't fade away, don't fade away
Don't fade away, don't fade away

Don't fade away
When the world is crashing down
Don't fade away
And you're left alone on shaky ground
Don't fade away, don't fade away, don't fade away

Don't fade away, don't fade away
Don't fade away, don't fade away

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line

Scarce as Monday morning feeling washed away
I orchestrated paradise couldn't make you stay
You dance with the horses through the sands of time
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

I have these pictures and I
Keep these photographs to
Remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doing fine
I use to make you happy once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line

The two of us together felt nothing but right
Feeling we're immortal every Friday night
Lost in our convictions lips stained with wine
As the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line

I have these pictures and I
Keep these photographs to
Remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doing fine
I use to make you happy once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line

I don't talk to you too much these days
I just thank the Lord, pictures don't fade
I spent time with an Angel just passing through
Now all that's left is this image of you

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind

I have these pictures and I
Keep these photographs to
Remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doing fine
We use to be so happy once upon a time
(Once upon a time)
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino county line

Mendocino county line
Mendocino county line
Mendocino county line

. . .


On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again,
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
And our way
Is on the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
And our way
Is on the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
And I can't wait to get on the road again
