Amos Moses by Jerry Reed

Well Amos Moses was a Cajun,
He lived by himself in the swamp.
He hunted alligators for a livin,
He just knocked 'em in the head with a stump.
The Louisiana law gonna get ya Amos
It ain't legal hunting alligators down in the swamp, boy

Well everybody blamed his old man,
For makin' him mean as a snake,
When Amos Moses was a boy,
His daddy would use him for alligator bait.
Tie a rope around his neck, and throw him in the swamp,
Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou

About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Louisiana
Lived a man named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
hey raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries,
Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses

Well, the folks around south Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest, the meanest alligator
And just use one hand
That's all he's got left cause an alligator bit him
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow

Well the sheriff caught wind that Amos
Was in the swamp huntin' alligator skins
So he snuck in the swamp, gonna getcha boy,
But he never come out again.
Well, I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to?
You can sure get lost in a Louisiana bayou!

About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Louisiana
Lived a man named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
They raised a son who could eat up his weight in groceries,
Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses

"Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" by Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man 
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

See the alligators all a waitin' nearby 
Sooner or later they know I'm gonna try.
When she waves from the bank don't you know I know
It's goodbye fishin' line, see you while ago.
With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side
The Mississippi River don't look so wide.

Louisiana woman, Mississippi man 
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

Well, I thought I'd been loved but I never had
Till I was wrapped In the arms of a Mississippi man.
When he holds me close it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast.
If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim.

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it's one mile wide
And I'm gotta get me to the other side.
Mississippi man, I'm losin' my mind 
Gotta have your loving one more time.
I'm gonna jump in the river and here I go
Too bad alligatior you swim too slow.

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

There's too much love in the Mississippi heart 
Too much love in this Louisiana heart...

"Hey Good Lookin`" by Hank Williams

Hey, hey, good lookin', 
Whatcha got cookin'? 
How's about cookin' somethin' up with me? 
Hey, sweet baby, 
Don't you think maybe
We could find us a brand new recipe? 
I got a hot-rod Ford and a two-dollar bill
And I know a spot right over the hill. 
There's soda pop and the dancin's free, 
So if you wanna have fun come a-long with me. 

Hey, good lookin', 
Whatcha got cookin'? 
How's about cookin' somethin' up with me? 

I'm free and ready, 
So we can go steady. 
How's about savin' all your time for me? 
No more lookin', 
I know I've been tooken. 
How's about keepin' steady company? 

I'm gonna throw my date-book over the fence
And find me one for five or ten cents. 
I'll keep it 'til it's covered with age
'Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page.
 
Hey, good lookin', 
Whatcha got cookin'? 
How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

"Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton

Midnight,
and I'm a-waiting on the twelve-oh-five
Hoping it'll take me just a little farther down the line

Moonlight,
you're just a heartache in disguise;
Won't you keep my heart from breaking
if it's only for a very short time

Playing with the queen of hearts,
knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool
who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie,
thinking 'bout a life of crime
That's what I'll have to do
to keep me away from you

Honey, you know it makes you mad
Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done
Baby, I know it makes you sad
But when they're handing out the heartaches
you know you got to have you some

Playing with the queen of hearts,
knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool
who'll do anything for you

Lovers, I know you've had a few
But hide your heart beneath the covers
and tell 'em they're the only one
And others, they know just what I'm going through
And it's a-hard to be a lover when you say you're only in it for fun

Playing with the queen of hearts,
knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool who'll do anything for you

Playing with the queen of hearts,
knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool
who'll do anything for you

Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts..
Playing with the queen of hearts...

"The Letter That Johnny Walker Read” by Asleep At The Wheel

Lyrics coming soon
-----------------------------------------------------------

"One Step Forward" by Desert Rose Band

You held me up held me down
Made me crazy then you brought me around
Were my darkness and my light
You were my blindness and my sight

Were my shelter and my storm
Made me cold then you made me warm
You were my fever and my cure
Made me doubt and you made me sure

One step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

You were my hope and my fears
You were my laughter and my tears
Were my destiny and my fate
Kept me movin' you made me wait

Were my weakness and my power
You were the thorn and the flower
You were my sunshine and the rain
Made me feel so good brought so much pain

Now one step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

And we never really meant for each other
We were never really meant to last
In the years that we danced together
Each step forward we took two steps back
Each step forward we took two steps back

Now one step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

One step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

"Crazy" by Willie Nelson

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

Worry
Why do I let myself worry
Wondering
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

-----------------------------------------------------------

"Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray" by Patsy Cline

Two cigarettes in an ashtray,
My love and I in a small café.
Then a stranger came along,
And everything went wrong.
Now there's three cigarettes in the ashtray.

I watched her take him from me,
And his love is no longer my own.
Now they are gone, and I sit alone,
And watch one cigarette burn away.

I watched her take him from me,
And his love is no longer my own.
Now they are gone, and I sit alone,
And watch one cigarette burn away.

"Make the World go away" by Mickey Gilley

Make the world go away
Get it off my shoulder
Say the things we used to say
And make the world, make it go away

Do you remember when you loved me
Before the world took you away
Well if you do, then forgive me
And make the world, make it go away

Make the world go away
Get it off my shoulder
Say the things we used to say
And make the world, make it go away

Now I'm sorry if I hurt you
Let me make it up to you day by day
And if you will please forgive me
And make the world, make it go away

Make the world go away
Get it off my shoulder
Say the things we used to say
And make the world, make it go away

“Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” by Ed Bruce

Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold.
They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold.
Lonestar belt buckles and old faded levis,
And each night begins a new day.
If you don't understand him, an' he don't die young,
He'll probably just ride away.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
'Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone.
Even with someone they love.

Cowboys like smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings,
Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night.
Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do,
Sometimes won't know how to take him.
He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him,
Do things to make you think he's right.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
'Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone.
Even with someone they love.

"Always Wanting You" by Merle Haggard

Always wanting you, but never having you,
Makes it hard to face tomorrow.
'Cause I know I'll wake up wanting you again.
Always loving you, but never touching you,
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.

I'd been better off if I'd turned away,
And never looked at you the second time.
'Cause I really had my life all together,
'Til your eyes meet mine.
And there I saw a yearning,
And a feeling across the room that you felt for me.
Wish I'd had away of knowing.
The things we had in mind could never be.

Always wanting you, but never having you,
Makes it hard to face tomorrow.
'Cos I know I'll wake up wanting you again.
Always loving you, but never touching you,
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.

Always wanting you, but never having you,
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.

"All My Exes Live In Texas" by Whitey Shafer

All my ex's live in Texas,
And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Rosanna's down in Texarcana, wanted me to push her broom,
And sweet Ilene's in Abilene, she forgot I hung the moon,
And Allison in Galveston somehow lost her sanity,
And Dimples, who now lives in Temple's,
Got the law lookin’ for me.

All my ex's live in Texas,
And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
But all my ex's live in Texas,
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

I remember that old Frio river where I learned to swim.
And it brings to mind another time where I wore my welcome thin.
My transcendental meditation, I go there each night,
But I always come back to myself
Long before daylight.

All my ex's live in Texas,
And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Some folks think I'm hidin',
It's been rumored that I died,
But I'm alive and well in Tennessee.

"I Love a Rainy Night" by Eddie Rabbit

Well, I love a rainy night
I love a rainy night
I love to hear the thunder
Watch the lightning
When it lights up the sky
You know it makes me feel good

Well, I love a rainy night
It's such a beautiful sight
I love to feel the rain
On my face
Taste the rain on my lips
In the moonlight shadow

Showers washed
All my cares away
I wake up to a sunny day
'Cos I love a rainy night
Yeah, I love a rainy night
Well, I love a rainy night
Well, I love a rainy night

Ooh-ooh

I love a rainy night
I love a rainy night
I love to hear the thunder
Watch the lightning
When it lights up the sky
You know it makes me feel good

Well, I love a rainy night
It's such a beautiful sight
I love to feel the rain
On my face
To taste the rain on my lips
In the moonlight shadows

Puts a song
In this heart of mine
Puts a smile on my face every time

'Cos I love a rainy night
Yeah, I love a rainy night
Ooh, I love a rainy night
Yeah, I love a rainy night

"New York City" by The Statler Brothers

She came to me shortly after Christmas,
Said she hated spoiling New Year's Eve.
But the truth doesn't wait to come in season
And what we had feared was now believed
She said she'd leave come Monday morning,
Catch a plane if I'd split the fair.
She had friends who lived in New York City.
She'd look them up and have the baby there.

And now she's alone in New York City,
Living like… Lord, I wonder how.
An angel in hell in New York City,
But I can't think about that now.

Honey, will you tell him Bible stories
And give him all the love I never could?
And never tell him too much about his daddy
'Cause there's not too much to say that's good.
He'll have to learn it all from his mother:
How to count and say his ABC's.
But when you teach him prayers to say at bedtime,
Leave off "God bless Daddy," won't you please?

And now they're alone in New York City,
Living like Lord… I wonder how.
Two angels in hell in New York City,
But I can't think about that now.
I can't think about that now.

-----------------------------------------------------------

"Bed of Roses" by The Statler Brothers

She was called a scarlet woman by the people,
Who would go to church but left me in the street,
With no parents of my own, I never had a home,
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat.

She found me outside one Sunday morning,
Taking money from a man I didn't know,
She took me in and wiped away my childhood,
A woman of the streets this Lady Rose.

This bed of roses that I lay on,
Where I was taught to be a man,
This bed of roses where I'm living,
Is the only kind of love I understand.

She was a handsome woman, just thirty-four,
Who was spoken to in town by very few.
She managed a late evening business,
Like most of the town wished they could do.

And I learned all the things that a man should know,
From a woman not approved of I suppose,
But she died knowing that I really loved her,
Off life's bramble bush,I picked a rose.
