Track Name: WORLD OFF MY SHOULDERS
PLEASE TAKE THE WORLD OFF MY SHOULDERS

IT JUST WON’T LEAVE ME ALONE

PLEASE TAKE THE WORLD OFF MY SHOULDERS

JUST TRYIN TO GET ON BACK ON HOME [GET ON BACK HOME]

I REMEMBER BACK WHEN I WAS A YOUNG MAN

WONDER FILLED ALL OF THE DAYS

NOW THAT I’M A LITTLE BIT OLDER

JUST TRYIN TO GET BACK ON MY WAY, [BACK ON MY WAY]

ALL THAT I LEARNED, JUST CAN’T PUT DOWN IN WORDS

BUT YOU CAN READ IT RIGHT HERE IN MY EYES

ALL I’VE FORGOTTEN FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM

CAN’T TELL THE TRUTH FROM THE LIES, [TRUTH FROM THE LIES]


PLEASE TAKE THE WORLD OFF MY SHOULDERS

IT JUST WON’T LEAVE ME ALONE

PLEASE TAKE THE WORLD OFF MY SHOULDERS

JUST TRYIN TO GET ON BACK ON HOME [GET ON BACK HOME]

THERE’S TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD

HIDERS AND SEEKERS THEY SAY

WHAT KIND OF PERSON ARE YOU SIR?

YOU KNOW WE’RE ALL ONE AND THE SAME, 1 AND THE SAME
Track Name: BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
BABY BABY HOLD MY HAND

BABY BABY I UNDERSTAND

THE REASON I FEEL, THE WAY THAT I DO

IS ALL BECAUSE I LOVE YOU


WITH THE SUNRISE, IT’S A BRAND NEW DAY

PRETTY DARLING, WE KNOW THE WAY

TOGETHER I KNOW, WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH

THAT’S BECAUSE I LOVE YOU


THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE,

THAT TRY TO PULL US APART

DON’T REALLY MATTER BABY,

WITH YOU IN MY HEART

BABY BABY HOLD MY HAND

BABY BABY I UNDERSTAND

THE REASON I FEEL, THE WAY THAT I DO

IS ALL BECAUSE I LOVE YOU

THE REASON I FEEL, THE WAY THAT I DO

IS BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
Track Name: NORTH THRU SOUTH
NORTH THRU SOUTH KEVIN JOHN ALLEN 6-20-2011

DON’T KNOW HOW I GOT TO HERE
PASSING BY THRU ALL THOSE YEARS
I SHOULD HAVE PLANNED THE END
THANKS FOR THE RIDE MY FRIENDS

PLACES COME & PLACES GO
PEOPLE YOU LOVE, AND SOME YOU DON’T KNOW
IN THE END YOU’RE ALL ALONE
WHEN IT’S TIME TO GO HOME

AS I TRAVEL NORTH THRU SOUTH
BITTERSWEET TASTE IN MY MOUTH
A LIFE TIME THAT’S ONLY COME SO FAR
…ONLY COME SO FAR…

MAKE LOT’S OF FRIENDS, LOVE THE PEOPLE YOU MEET
FIND A PLACE TO HOLD ON, AND PLANT YOUR FEET
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…

AS I TRAVEL NORTH THRU SOUTH
BITTERSWEET TASTE IN MY MOUTH
A LIFE TIME THAT’S ONLY COME SO FAR
…ONLY COME SO FAR…
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…
TAKE THE TIME TO WONDER, TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE…
Track Name: LIFE'S LONELY RODEO
THE HORSE IS AT THE GATE, I’VE BEEN DRINKIN PRETTY HARD
THE LIGHTS, MUSIC, ACTION, AND THE POUNDIN OF MY HEART
SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE MUST KNOW ALL ABOUT THE PAIN
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN
DANCED THE DANCE OF WINNERS, DANCED THE DANCE OF FOOLS
DANCED THE DANCE OF LONELINESS, PRAYIN TO GET BACK WITH YOU
NOW I’M OUT HERE ALL ALONE, WITH THE SINNERS AND THE SAINTS
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN
CHORUS
BABY, BABY ,PLEASE, WON’T YOU TAKE ME BACK,
BEEN DRINKING ALL DAY LONG AND I’M LOOKIN LIKE A WRECK
WHEN I TURN OFF THE LIGHTS, THE HOUSE IS NOT A HOME
LIFE’S SEEMS SO EMPTY, WHEN YOU’RE LIVING ALL ALONE
[Dobro slide solo]

LONELY NIGHTS HERE IN THE BAR, WITH JUST THE TINKLING IN THE GLASS
SOMETIMES IT FEELS SO BAD, DON’T KNOW HOW LONG I CAN LAST…
CAN’T SAY EXACTLY HOW I FEEL, STUMBLING IN THE RAIN
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN

SEEMS THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO, GAVE IT ALL AWAY MY FRIEND
I SEALED UP MY OWN FATE, IN THE COURTHOUSE AT THE END
NOW I’M HERE EVERY NIGHT, THIRD STOOL FROM THE PAIN
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN

DANCED THE DANCE OF WINNERS, DANCED THE DANCE OF FOOLS
DANCED THE DANCE OF LONELINESS, PRAYIN TO GET BACK WITH YOU
NOW I’M OUT HERE ALL ALONE, WITH THE SINNERS AND THE SAINTS
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN

BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN
BACK AT LIFE’S LONELY RODEO AGAIN

Hoot….
Track Name: JESUS COULD YOU CALL ME
JESUS COULD YOU CALL ME
PICK ME UP, DRIVE ME HOME
I’M DOWN HERE AT THE STATION
ALL ALONE
I WAS A WORKIN MAN
WORKED HARD MY WHOLE LIFE
I WAS A WORKIN MAN
TILL THE DAY THE FACTORY DIED
AND NOW THE FAVORITE SON
HAS NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN
JESUS COULD YOU CALL ME
PICK ME UP, DRIVE ME HOME
I’M DOWN HERE AT THE STATION
ALL ALONE
DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO
TAKE CARE OF THE LITTLE GUY
DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO
AIN’T NO USE IN ASKING WHY
YOU DON’T REAP WHAT YOU SOW
AND NO ONE EVER KNOWS
JESUS COULD YOU CALL ME
PICK ME UP, DRIVE ME HOME
I’M DOWN HERE AT THE STATION
ALL ALONE
ALL ALONE
ALL ALONE TAKE ME HOME
Track Name: TRUE LOVE [Can Stand The Test Of Time]

TWO HEARTS AS ONE, FEELS SO RIGHT

TRUE LOVE,TRUE LOVE,CAN STAND THE TEST OF TIME


YOU RUN YOUR FINGERS THRU MY HAIR

YOUR TOUCH IS LIGHT AS AIR

THE FEELING INSIDE ME GETS SO WARM

YOUR SOFT BREATH ON MY CHEST

NOW WERE COMPLETELY AT REST

WHEN WE MAKE LOVE I FEEL ALIVE
CHORUS DUET

WHEN YOU’RE IN LOVE IT SHOULD LAST FOREVER

TWO HEARTS AS ONE, FEELS SO RIGHT

TRUE LOVE, TRUE LOVE, CAN STAND THE TEST OF

TIME

TIME

SOMETIMES AT NIGHT,

WHEN THE MOOD’S JUST RIGHT,

AND I HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS… KJA 2-18-2011

Track Name: SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY
SHE ALWAYS SAID SHE WAS LONELY

EVEN THE NIGHTS SHE WASN’T ALONE

TOLD ME I WAS HER ONE & ONLY

IF SHE CALLED ON THE TELEPHONE

A HARD LIFE INSIDE THE BARS
SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY…

YOUNG GIRLS HAVE DREAMS YOU KNOW

THAT’S THE STORY SHE WAS TOLD

NOT LIKE ALL THE OTHERS

DIDN’T WANT TO BE HER MOTHER

TROUBLE COMES & NO ONE KNOWS…

SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY…

SOMETIMES IN THE HAZE OF NIGHT

NEVER KNEW HOW TO MAKE IT RIGHT

PRETTY BOYS CALL OUT HER NAME

THAT’S ALL PART OF THE MATING GAME

A GAPING HOLE INSIDE HER HEART

SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY…

EVERYONE TOLD HER WHERE TO GO

ALL THE LESSONS THAT SHE NEEDS TO KNOW

SHE’LL GO OUT FOR WHAT SHE WANTS

NEVER TRULY WAS A DEBUTANT

THERE’S REALLY NO RULES

WHEN YOU JUST WANT TO FLY, WHEN YOU JUST WANT TO FLY

WE NEVER KNEW SHE WAS LONELY

NEVER SPENT HER TIME ALONE

I PRAYED SHE WAS MY ONE & ONLY

IF SHE CALLED ON THE TELEPHONE

A HARD LIFE INSIDE HER SCARS

SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY… SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY…
Track Name: SIMONE
WHEN THE SKY GETS A LITTLE CLOUDY

IF I’M FEELIN A LITTLE LOW

THERE’S A JOY HERE IN MY LIFE

MY LOVELY LADY SIMONE

SHE BRINGS RAINBOWS INTO MY SKY

TURNS OUR HOUSE INTO A HOME

I LOVE HER EVERYDAY AND NIGHT

MY DARLING SIMONE

SHE COMFORTS ME & HOLDS ME CLOSE

IF I COME HOME LATE AT NIGHT

WHEN I’M A LITTLE BLUE

SHE MAKES IT ALRIGHT

CAN’T SAY HOW I FOUND HER

ALL THOSE YEARS I DID ROAM

NOW I STAND ON SOLID GROUND

NEXT TO LADY SIMONE

SHE BRINGS RAINBOWS INTO MY SKY

TURNS OUR HOUSE INTO A HOME

I LOVE HER EVERYDAY AND NIGHT

MY DARLING SIMONE

LOVELY LADY SIMONE
Track Name: THE BIG GOODBYE!
SO YOU SAY YOU’RE LEAVIN’
THIS IS THE BIG GOODBYE
AFTER ALL THE YEARS I GAVE YOU BABY
YOU CAN’T EVEN STAY THE NIGHT
YOU SAY IT’S ALL OVER
IT’S BEEN BAD FOR SO LONG
YOU NEED TO START OFF FRESH
ANOTHER SINGER, ANOTHER SONG
I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY BABY
I HOPE YOU FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKIN FOR
YOU TEAR A HOLE IN MY HEART
WHEN YOU WALK OUT THAT DOOR
I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY BABY
AND ALL YOU’RE DREAMS COME TRUE
GO BE WHAT YOU GOT TO BE
BUT I’LL NEVER, I’LL NEVER FORGET YOU…
INSTRUMENTAL BREAK 1x

I REMEMBER SUNSET BEACHES
MAKING LOVE IN THE SAND
SWEARING IT WAS FOREVER
THOSE OLD DREAMS THAT WE HAD
NOW YOUR CAR IS STARTING
DRIVING DOWN THAT LONESOME ROAD
YOU’RE OUT OF MY LIFE FOREVER…
THE BEST LOVE I’VE EVER KNOWN
I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY BABY
I HOPE YOU FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKIN FOR
YOU TEAR A HOLE IN MY HEART
WHEN YOU WALK OUT THAT DOOR

I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY BABY
AND ALL YOU’RE DREAMS COME TRUE
GO BE WHAT YOU GOT TO BE
BUT I’LL NEVER, I’LL NEVER FORGET YOU…
Track Name: Mr Lucky
HERE’S COMES MR LUCKY FROM ACROSS THE ROOM

HE STARTS TO SWAGGER, BUT IT’S WAY TOO SOON

I KNOW YOUR KIND AND YOU DON’T HAVE A CHANCE

I’M NOT HERE FOR LOVE, I JUST CAME TO DANCE


YOU WALK OVER WITH ALL YOUR CHARMS

YOU THINK IT’S EASY, I’LL JUST FALL IN YOUR ARMS

THAT’S NOT THE WAY THAT THIS LADY PLAYS

I GET RESPECT, OR YOU CAN JUST GO AWAY
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE CAUSE I’M NOT THAT KIND

THIS LITTLE LADY MAKES UP HER OWN MIND

I AIN’T PLAYING THE CHEAP ROMANCE GAME

YOU CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER MY NAME

MR LUCKY, GOLD CHAINS AND COLOGNE

YOU GOT NOTHING, I DON’T ALREADY OWN

MY SELF RESPECT IS MORE THAN YOU ARE

A GUY LIKE YOU WON’T GET VERY FAR
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE CAUSE I’M NOT THAT KIND

THIS LITTLE LADY MAKES UP HER OWN MIND

I AIN’T PLAYING THE CHEAP ROMANCE GAME

YOU CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER MY NAME

HERE COMES MR LUCKY

HERE COMES MR LUCKY

BYE BYE MR LUCKY

NO CHANCE MR LUCKY… BYE BYE…
