Tonight in the bar alone I'm sitting
Apart from the laughter and the cheer
Scenes from the past rise before me
Watchin' the bubbles in my beer

(Chorus:)
Visions of someone who loved me
Brings a lone silent tear to my eye
And I know that my life's been a failure
Watchin' the bubbles in my beer

I'm seeing the road that I travel
A road filled with heartaches and tears
And I'm seeing the past that I've wasted
Watchin' the bubbles in my beer

(Repeat chorus)

(As Performed by Ray Price on
"San Antonio Rose - A Tribute To The Great Bob Wills)

Tonight in a bar room I'm sitting
Apart from the laughter and the cheer
The scenes of my life pass before me
While watchin' the bubbles in my beer

CHORUS:
A vision of someone who loved me
Brings a lone, silent tear to my eye
I know that my life's been a failure
Just watchin' the bubbles in my beer

I'm seein' the road that I travel
A road paved with heartaches and tears
I'm seein' the past that I've wasted
While watchin' the bubbles in my beer

CHORUS:
I think of the heart that I've broken
And the golden chances that have passed me by
The dreams I once made now are over
As empty as the bubbles in my beer

(Cindy Walker)

So you saw her last night with her new love
Yes they tell me they make quite a pair
And that they both look happy together
I just wonder not that I care

Tell me did she look lovely as ever
Like an angel with golden hair
Does she still close her eyes when she dances
I just wonder not that I care

Once I thought I couldn't live without her
Funny how wrong I could be
Now I hardly ever think about her
What she does doesn't mean a thing to me

Well it's late so I guess I'll be going
Too much smoke what I need is some air
By the way did she ask you about me
I just wonder not that I care
I just wonder not that I care


. . .



(Cindy Walker)

Take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart
Take me in your arms and tell me
That you've missed me since we've been apart.

You just don't know how heartsick
And lonesome I've been
Or how much I've prayed
That you'll come back again.

And take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart.

(You just don't know how heartsick)
(And lonesome I've been)
Or how much I've prayed
That you'll come back again.

And take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart...

Don't be ashamed of your age
Don't let the years get you down
That old gang you knew
They still think of you
As a rounder in your old home town

Don't mind the grey in your hair
Just think of the fun you had puttin' it there
And as for that old book of time
Boy, you never skipped a page
So, don't be ashamed of your age
Brother, don't be ashamed of your age

Now, listen Mr Smith and Mr Brown
Don't let the years get you down
'Cause life ain't begun until you're forty some
That's when you really start to go to town
Now don't wish that you were a lad
Why boy, you've lost more girls
Than they've ever had
And once more you've graduated
From that ol' stubborn stage
So, don't be ashamed of your age
Brother, don't be ashamed of your age



. . .



(C. Walker & E. Arnold)

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me

No you don't know the one
Who thinks of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
And yearns to hold you tight
To you I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been
No, you don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
LyricsThe chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away
Beside that lucky guy
You'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
No, you don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away
Beside that lucky guy
Who'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
No, You don't know me

You'll never, ever know
No, you don't know me

(Bob Wills/Cindy Walker)

When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
I'll be walkin' with my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

All the lovin' I missed
I'll be gettin' it soon
I'll be gettin' it from my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

I can see us right now
Get the calendar down
(And) Draw a circle around
The day we're heaven bound
When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
All the birds will be singin'
'Neath that old sugar moon

LyricsI can see us right now
Get the calendar down
(And) Draw a circle around
The day we're heaven bound
When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
All the birds will be singin'
'Neath that old sugar moon

When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
I'll be walkin' with my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

(Michael Webb and Cindy Walker)

Now, I don't care if I'm not the first love you've known,
Just so I'll be the last.
No, I don't care if I'm not the first one you've kissed,
Darling, I'll never ask.

Yesterday's gone,
Love me from now on.
Be true to me,
Forget about the past.

No, I don't care if I'm not the first love you've known,
Just so I'll be the last.

[Instrumental break]

Yesterday's gone,
Love me from now on.
Be true to me,
Forget about the past.

No, I don't care if I'm not the first love you've known,
Just so I'll be the last.
Darling, I'll never ask.

One night when the moon was bright on the moonlit bay.
That is where I found my little Cherokee maid.
The memory of the that night of love, is lingering yet.
And I know I never will forget.

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so.
And though we're far apart.
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her,
For anybody else's heart.
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip,
And I'll carry her away with me.
And straight as an arrow flies,
We'll ride to paradise,
My sweet little chickadee,
My little Cherokee Maiden and me.

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so.
And though we're far apart.
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her,
For anybody else's heart.
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip,
And I'll carry her away with me.
And straight as an arrow flies,
We'll ride to paradise,
My sweet little chickadee,
My little Cherokee Maiden and me.

Put a nickel in the jukebox
And let it play
For my heart is troubled with pain
Take the cork from the bottle
Of the warm red wine
And fill my glass up, again.

Fill my glass to the brim
Till it flows o'er the rim
Like the tears flow in this heart of mine
Then I'll say so long
To the dreams that are gone
On account of the warm red wine.

[Instrumental]

Oh, a prison of stone
With it's cold iron bars
Is no more than a prison than mine
LyricsI'm a prisoner of drink
Who will never escape
From the chains of the warm red wine.

Oh, the wine is red
So warm and red
Like the ribbon
It sparkles and shines
But I paid for the wine
Yeah, That one red wine
With all of my hopes
And in my dreams...


. . .



(Cindy Walker)

Oh, have you seen Miss Molly? Her cheeks are rosy red
Now when Miss Molly's smilin' the sun is dim a spell
I'll trade my horse and saddle Cow drivin' I'll resign
Now listen dear Miss Molly I've told you this before

Her lips are soft as satin and they taste like gingerbread
And when she laughs her voice is like a little silver bell
If only Miss Molly will say that she'll be mine
And even tho' I told you so I'll tell you just once more

[Chorus:]
Oh, Oh, Oh, me, oh, my Miss Molly I'm in love with you
Oh, me, oh, my Miss Molly won't you say you love me too

Dusty skies I can't see nothing in sight
Good old Dan you'll have to guide me right
For we lose our way the cattle will stray
And we lose them all tonight
With all of the grass and water's gone
We'll have to keep the cattle moving on
Sand blowing I just can't breathe in this air
Thought it would soon be clear and fair
But the dust storms were bad they took all we had
I've got to be moving somewhere

I hate to leave the old ranch so bare
But I've got to be moving somewhere
So get along doggies we're moving off of this range
Never thought as how I'd make the change
But the blue skies have failed we're on our last trail
Underneath these dusty skies
These ain't tears in my eyes just sand from these dusty skies


. . .



Hey baby don't you think I know
I've been acting real funny for a week or so
It's not like me to see things through
But I've never seen a sight quite like you
It's time for me to face the facts
I've gone too far and I can't turn back

I'm in love and it's all your fault
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

I've survived behind these walls
Never thought that I could see them fall
Hey now baby, I can't believe
That I give in so easily

The look in your eyes, the feel of your lips
The touch of your skin on my fingertips

I'm in love and it's all your fault
LyricsTurned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

Ahh yeah!!
The look in your eyes, the feel of your lips
The touch of your skin on my fingertips

I'm in love and it's all your fault
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and it's all your fault

Yeah!
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and it's all your fault


. . .



I was just walkin' out the door
It's too bad you didn't come before
I've waited so long, so long, so long
Now there's no time to wait anymore

How I cried for you day and night
For the letters that you wouldn't write
But now it's alright, alright, alright
You won't have to write anymore

Not so long ago you will never know
What this day to me would have been
But it's all changed now
Darling, anyhow
It was nice to see you again

Well, it's almost a quarter to four
Sorry, I can't stay anymore
I must be on my way
It's my wedding day
And I was just walkin' out the door

Well, it's almost a quarter to four
Sorry, I can't stay anymore
I must be on my way
It's my wedding day
And I was just walkin' out the door
