Mama´s never seen those eyes
(T.N. Skinner/J.L. Wallace)

Mama says I shouldn´t be going with you, mama says she knows best
You´ll take my heart and break it in two ´cause you´re just like all the rest
She says you´re just a one night man and you´ll end up hurtin´ me
Ah, but I´ve seen something that mama ain´t never seen

Chorus
Mama never looked into those eyes, felt the way that they hypnotize
She don´t know how they make me feel inside
If mama only knew what they do to me I think she´d be surprised
Mama´s never seen those eyes, Mama´s never seen those eyes

Mama says I shouldn´t let you steal a kiss, mama says it just ain´t righ
She don´t know what I can´t resist with the moon so big and bright
She says I´ll find a love someday, but you´re just not the one
Ah, but I´ve done something that mama ain´t never done



Right in the middle of it
(C. Wright)

They´re either fallin´ in or they fallin´ out
That´s the only kind of love you ever hear about
But we´re somewhere here in between and it oughta go down in history
`Cause love is alive with you and me and it´s a real good place to be

Chorus
`Cause we´re right in the middle of it, yeah right in the middle of it
There´s no fireworks and no big bouquets, no hot romance on display
But we don´t think about breakin´ up, we´re just right in the middle of love

Yeah all our friends wonder how we made it last
We say we´re lookin´ at tomorrow and not the past
No, they never gonna make a movie ´bout us, `cause we don´t have a Hollywood love
The credits roll when a movie is through
But there ain´t gonna be and end to me and you

Chorus



 A LESSON IN LEAVIN`
(R. Goodrum/B. Maher)

Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in leavin´,
Somebody´s gonna give you back what you´ve been given and I hope that I´m around
To watch ´em knock you down
It´s like you to love ´em and leave ´em just like you loved me and left me
It´s like you to do that sort of thing, over and over again
You´re a fool-hearted man

I hear you´ve been asking about me from some of my friends,
Well, you better believe I´m not going through that again
Well, you´re the kind of man, a woman think she can change
The only thing changing is my way of thinkin´ and I´m thinking that baby some day

Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in losin´
Somebody´s gonna do to you what you´ve been doing and I hope that I´m around
To watch ´em  knock you down
Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in hurtin´
Somebody´s gonna leave you with your fire burnin´ with no way to put it out
Baby there ain´t no doubt - you´re a fool-hearted man

SOLO

Well, you´re the kind of man, a woman think she can change
The only thing changing is my way of thinkin´ and I´m thinking that baby some day

Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in leavin´,
Somebody´s gonna give you back what you´ve been given and I hope that I´m around
To watch ´em knock you down
It´s like you to love ´em and leave ´em just like you loved me and left me
It´s like you to do that sort of thing
Over and over again

Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in losin´
Somebody´s gonna do to you what you´ve been doing and I hope that I´m around
To watch ´em  knock you down
Somebody´s gonna give you a lesson in hurtin´
Somebody´s gonna leave you with your fire burnin´ with no way to put it out
Baby there ain´t no doubt
You´re a fool-hearted man



ARE THERE ANYMORE LIKE YOU
(B.Hobbs)

You´ve got those eyes that hypnotize bright as the deep blue sea
And you got those lips that wish to be kissed, I wish they were kissin´ me
Thanks for the dance, thanks for the drink but I see on your finger a gold wedding ring
So I´d better go before I lose control but there´s one thing that I like to know

Chorus
Are there anymore like you where you came from, if there is I want to get me one
My heart is breaking ´cause your heart is taking, are there anymore like you where you came from

I must confess, I´d be a mess if I stay for one more song
‘Cause the way you look at me, it´s easy to see, I´m gonna last alone
Still I wish I could stay and I wish you were free
But I´d better get away before you get to me
Well, there ain´t no one to blame, but ain´t it a shame, somebody else has got your name

Chorus

SOLO

Some other place, some other time, I´ll find somebody just like you and make him mine
But ´till I do I´ll be lonesome and blue and I´ll keep on dreamin´ of you

Chorus



WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL
(D. Schlitz/P. Overstreet)

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain, what I hear when you don't say a thing

Chorus:
The smile on your face let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me where ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Try as they may they could never define, what's being said between your heart and mine

Chorus



ROCKIN` WITH THE RHYTHM OF THE RAIN
(D. Schlitz/B. Maher)

Sittin’ in the porch swing listenin’ to the light rain, beatin’ on the tin roof baby, just me and you
Rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain
Slide on over, baby hold me closer, movin’ to and fro, just swayin’ like a slow freight train
Rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain

chorus
Let the breeze keep blowin’
(Rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain that’s a-fallin’ Nightbirds are singin’ , the crickets are callin’)
Oh, my heart will never be the same
Keep the sweet feelin’ goin’
(Whisper in my ear then move in so fine, nights like this come once in a lifetime)
Me and my baby, rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain

Oh, baby, hold me tight, say you love me, it’s all I wanna hear tonight

Sittin’ in the porch swing listenin’ to the light rain, beatin’ on the tin roof baby, just me and you
Rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain
Slide on over, baby hold me closer, movin’ to and fro, just swayin’ like a slow freight train
Rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain



Shut Up And DrivE
(S. Tate/A. Tate/ R. Rutherford)

Shut up and drive, you don't know what you're talking about
He's not the one, you ought to know that by now
You've got one of those hearts that keeps changing your mind
Your heart has a way of making you stay, so shut up and drive
Don't look in the mirror, he might have that look in his eyes
The one that`s so strong, it strangles your will to survive
He's mastered the art of looking sincere
His eyes have a way of making you stay , don't look in the mirror

chorus
I'm the voice you never listen to
And I had to break your heart to make you see
That he's the one who will be missing you
And you'll only miss the man that you wanted him to be

Turn the radio on to drown out the sound of goodbye
Blink back the tears, show me you've still got your pride
Just get yourself lost in a sad country song
Those guys that they play know just what to say, turn the radio on



What you Gonna Do With a Cowboy
(G. Brooks/M.D.Sanders)

I can see you got your eye on this ol' cowboy
I can tell you've never had one for your own
Well you've never been around one, now you're thinkin' that you found one
And it might be kinda' fun to take him home

You giggle every time that he says   "Yes, ma'am"
And I get this feelin' if he held you tight
You'd be seein' his and her's, buckles, boots, and spurs
But that's a feelin' you'd get over overnight

Chorus
'Cause what you gonna' do with a cowboy? 
When that ol' rooster crows at dawn
When he's lyin' there instead of getting' out of bed and puttin' on his boots and gettin' gone
What you gonna do when he says  "Honey,  I got half a mind to stay"
What you gonna do with a cowboy when he don't saddle up and ride away

You can see it takes a special kinda woman to put up with the life a cowboy leads
Cause his boots are always muddy and his beer drinkin' buddies
They'll camp out on your couch and never leave

Don't even start to think you're gonna change him
You'd be better off tryin' to rope the wind
Cause what he is is what you've got and he can't be what he's not
And honey, you can't hide him from your friends

Chorus


Do I Ever Cross Your Mind

(D. Parton)

Oh, sometimes I go walking through fields where we walked long ago
In the sweet used to be
And the flowers still grow, but they don't smell as sweet
As they did when you picked them for me

Chorus:
And when I think of you and the love we once knew
How I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever think back on old memories like that or do I ever cross your mind

Bridge:
Do you ever  wake up lonely in the middle of the night because you miss me, do you darling
Oh, and do your memories ever take you back into another place in time
And do you ever miss the feelings and the love we shared when you were with me
Tell me darling   -   Or do I ever cross your mind

SOLO

Oh, how often I wish that again I could kiss your sweet lips like I did long ago
And how often I long for those two loving arms that once held me so gentle and close

Chorus:
And when I think of you and the love we once knew
H  o  w   I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever think back on old memories like that or do I ever cross your mind

Bridge:
Do you ever  wake up lonely in the middle of the night because you miss me, do you darling
Oh, and do your memories ever take you back into another place in time
And do you ever miss the feelings and the love we shared when you were with me
Tell me darling   -   Or do I ever cross your mind , tell me darling
Do I ever cross your mind, tell me darling
Do I ever cross your mind



Don't be cruel
(O. Blackwell/E. Presley)

Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true
I don’t want no other love, baby it’s just you I’m thinking of

You know I can be found sittin´ home all alone
If you can't come around at least please telephone
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true

Baby if I made you mad for something I might have said
Please let's forget the past the future looks bright ahead
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true

I don't want no other love, baby it's just you I'm thinking of

Well, don’t stop thinking of me, don’t make me feel this way
Come on over here and love me, you know I want to say
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true

Why should we be apart, I really love you baby, cross my heart

Let’s walk up to the preacher and let us say „I do“
And then you’ll know you have me, and I’ll know I’ll have you too
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true

I don’t want no other love, baby it’s just you I’m thinking of

Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true
Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true
I don’t want no other love, baby it’s just you I’m thinking of

WHY NOT ME
(H. Howards/S. Throckmorton/B. Maher)

You´ve been looking for love all around the world
Baby don´t you know this country girl´s still free, why not me
When you finally came down to your old hometown
Your Kentucky girl´s been waiting patiently, why not me

Chorus
Why not me on a rainy day, why not me to love your cares away, why not me
Why not me when the night gets cold, why not me when you´re growing old, why not me

You´ve been searching from here to Singapore
Ain´t it time that you noticed the girl next door, baby, why not me
You had to see that the world was round
It´s time that you learn how good settlin´ down could be, why not me

Chorus  
Why not me on a rainy day, why not me to love your cares away, why not me
Why not me when the night gets cold, why not me when you´re growing old, why not me

SOLO

You´ve been looking for love all around the world
Baby don´t you know this country girl´s still free, why not me
Baby, why not me, baby, why not me

la,la,la ...
