Blue Smoke

[Chorus 1:]
Blue smoke climbin' up the mountain
Blue smoke windin' round the bend
Blue smoke is the name of the heartbreak train
That I am ridin' in
I left a note I wrote I'm leaving
And I won't be coming back
Blue smoke rolling, rolling, rolling
Rolling, rolling down the track
Oh, click-ad-ee, click-ad-ee, click-ad-ee clack
Just stay on track an' never look back
Choo-choo, choo-choo, woo-woo-woo
Blue smoke is comin' through

Oh I know I'm gonna miss you
But I hope it ain't for long
And I wonder if you're even gonna notice that I'm gone
Oh it hurts to know you cheated
And it hurt to know you lied
But it hurts me even worse to know you never even tried

I packed my suitcase full of heartaches
Headin' to the train depot
And I bought a one-way ticket
On that train they call Blue Smoke
Left the station straight-up midnight
Feelin' lonely, lost and blue
In a trail of blue smoke with my heart broke
Said good-bye to you

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2:]
Blue smoke climbin' up the mountain
Blue smoke windin' round the bend
Blue smoke is the name of the heartbreak train
That I am ridin' in
I left a note I wrote I'm leaving
And I won't be coming back
Blue smoke rolling, rolling, rolling
Rolling, rolling down the track

Blue smoke climbin', blue smoke windin'
And it's rolling, rolling, rolling
Rolling, rolling down the track
Blue smoke flyin', I said good-bye and
I'm rolling, rolling, rolling
Rolling, rolling down the track
Yeah I'm rolling, rolling, rolling
Rolling, rolling down the track

Unlikely Angel

Like the Phoenix
From the ash and dirt
I rose up from the pain and hurt
When I was at my very worst
I found you

Thought I could never love again
When a stream of light came beaming in
A thread of hope
For me to spend around you

[Chorus:]
Unlikely Angel
Standing there in front of me
As if you were my destiny
Like we were always meant to be together

Unlikely Angel
It feels so right inside your love
Like God has sent you from above
To honor, cherish, and to love forever

The smile upon your angel face
The heaven in your eyes replace
The hell that I've been going through
Before you

How long have you been there for me
I once was blind but now I see
A future full of hope
How I adore you

[Repeat Chorus]

Unlikely Angel
Oh, you never know where one might be
In sacred halls or crowded streets
But God has sent one straight down to me from heaven

Unlikely Angel
Unlikely Angel
Unlikely Angel
Unlikely Angel
Hmmmm

[Whisper:]
Unlikely Angel

Don't Think Twice

(Originally by Bob Dylan)

Ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter anyhow
Ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now

When your roof's too close at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You are the reason I'm traveling home
Don't think twice, it's alright

Ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
That night, I never know
Ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road

Still I wish there was something you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talking anyway
Don't think twice, it's alright

But there ain't no use in calling out my name, babe
Like you never did before
And there ain't no use in calling out my name
Cause I can't hear you anymore

Well, I'm thinking and wondering while I'm way down on the road
I once loved a man but that love grew old
I gave him my heart, but he wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's alright

Walking down that lone lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound I can't tell
But goodbye is too good away, babe
So I'm gonna say farewell

But I ain't saying you treated me unkind
You could have loved me better, but no, I don't mind
But you just kinda wasted my precious time
Don't think twice, it's alright

You Can't Make Old Friends

What will I do when you are gone?
Who's gonna tell me the truth?
Who's gonna finish the stories I start,
The way you always do?

When somebody knocks at the door,
Someone new walks in.
I will smile and shake their hands,
but you can't make old friends.

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can't make old friends.

How will I sing when you are gone?
Cause it wont sound the same.
Who will join in on those harmony parts,
When I call your name?

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can't make old friends.

When Saint Peter opens the gate,
And you come walking in.
I will be there just waiting for you.
Cause you can't make old friends
Cause you can't make old friends.

When I am out on the stage all alone
And I hear the music begin.
We all know the show must go on.
But you can't make old friends.

You can't make old friends.
Can't make old friends
And you and me, will be young again.
You can't make old friends.

You and me, will be together again.
Cause we both know, we will still be old friends.

You can't make old friends
Not the way we have always been.

Home

Looking out at my window pane
Tears lingering with the rain
I'm so lonesome, I could cry
Just like old Hank

Staring down on the city street
Feeling empty and incomplete
There's a place I need to be
To feel my day

[Bridge:]
A place I can go
Where I can be free
Where I can be happy and
Just be me

[Chorus:]
Home, where the long wind's blowin'
And the river's is flowing
Run along, like a lazy bum in
The midnight summer night
Run along, fishing with a friend
And a fishing hope
Rocking, lay down my heavy load
Know that I am always welcomed home

I left home, I was 17
I had a lot of ambitious dreams
Seen a lot of those dreams come true
I had good luck

I ain't complaining, that's for sure
I got a lot to be thankful of
One of those things is a magic door
That opens up

[Bridge:]
Back to the time when I was a kid
With the sounds of a cricket and [?]

[Chorus]

Banks Of The Ohio

I went into his prison cell
To write his story, if he'd tell
He spoke as tears, fell from his eyes
And he told me when, and how and why
And he said

I asked my love to take a walk
Just to walk, a little ways
And as we walked, then we could talk
About our future wedding day

But when she said, she could never be mine
I held a knife against his breast
As into my arms she pressed
He cried "my love, don't you murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity"

Then only say that you'll be mine
And in no others' arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the Banks of the Ohio

I started home 'tween twelve and one
I cried, "My God, what have I done?"
I've killed the one I love tonight
Because she would not be my bride

Well only say that you'll be mine
And in no others' arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the Banks of the Ohio
Down by the Banks of the Ohio

Save my soul lord
Save my soul
There beside where the waters flow
Down by the Banks of the Ohio

Lay Your Hands On Me

[Chorus:]
Lay Your hands on me
Lay Your hands on me
Lay Your hands on me

Lord, I'm ready, I'm willing
And You're able
To feel my empty cup at the
Master's table

'Cause I'm thirsty,
I'm hungry, my eyes aching
You say your love is mine
For the taking

Lord, what I am is
Exactly what you see
And I'm asking you to rescue me

Forgive of my sins and set me free
Lord, if you want me then
Lay Your hands on me

[Chorus]

I'm a sinner, I'm a loser, I'm a seeker
I need to learn to live, Lord, you're the teacher
Show me how to get my feet up off the ground
Teach me how to fly and never come back down

Everything you are is all I need
And your satisfaction is guaranteed
You sacrificed it all to set me free
So, if you want me

[Chorus]

Miss You, Miss Me

Miss me,
Don't you miss someone to hold you, now in the end?
And kiss me
And tell me I'm your lil' girl again

Daddy, when you left, did you remove yourself
From every sweet remembrance of me?
I'm always missing you, I hope you miss me too
And everything we were and still could be

Miss little things like walking in the park
Miss summer nights with fireflies in the jar
Big memories of you playing your guitar
Miss all of this, it's true, but mostly I miss you
'Cause no one else could ever take your place

And momma, don't you miss that home is all about
And all the drama caused by the anger you keep acting out?
Why can't you both just see, you didn't divorce me?
Forgive, forget and try to get along
I miss us being close, I love and miss you both
Don't miss the plea I've written in my song

Your little miss is missing out on you
And you're both missing out on so much too
Put pride aside and do what you should do
Don't make me have to choose,
'Cause I love the both of you
Just let resentment go, and think of me

You've torn my world apart, and it breaks my little heart
Can't you see me? And see me missing you?
Oooh, I miss you, I miss you, miss me!
Miss me! I miss you. Miss me!

If I Had Wings

If I had wings I would fly away from
All my troubles, all my thing
And I would fly to a place of comfort
Heaven knows I need a change
If I had wings, Lord give me wings

Oh, I've had my share
Walked alone, alone to road
I could use a new tomorrow
If I had wings I'd make it so
One cannot predict the future
One cannot undo the past
But we can make the present useful
Build the future that will last

If I had wings I'd fly away from
All of my troubles, all of my wounds
And I would fly 'till I found freedom
If I had wings I'd up and go home
If I had wings, Lord give me wings

If I had wings I'd fly away from
All of my troubles, all of my wounds
And I would fly 'till I found freedom
If I had wings I'd up and go home
If I had wings, Lord give me wings

If I had wings, oh, if I had wings
If I had wings, oh Lord, just give me wings
If I had wings, if had wings I'd make a change
If I had wings, if I had wings

If I had wings, if I had wings

Lover Du Jour

What are you looking at, love boy?
It won't do you any good,
Cause I know your kind!
If you wanna be mine,
We gotta get this understood!

Oh, I'm not gonna be, won't be your love du jour
Your special off the day, no way, I'll do farewell, bonjour
Pardon my French, but there's no chance in the hell for you, for sure
And if you think that I will be, I'll be your lover du jour
I'm what?
Lover du jour!
Not me!

I am well aware of your good looks and sexy ways
Serving up yourself to girls to satisfy your taste.
The fresh catch of the day, on your Romeo buffet
Served up hot and ready, just having it your way
Well, if I'm on the menu, you'd better get this straight
(Lover du jour)
Me and you had better come to terms before you grab your plate.
Don't need once place to order if you believe that I
I'm just some cheesy little dish, just another chickie pie.

No, I won't gonna be, won't be your love du jour
The flavor of the day, no way, I'll do farewell, bonjour
...but there's no chance in the hell that I endure
The fact that I would only be your lover du jour.

Oubliez-moi! Forget me!
Still looking, lover boy?
Have you changed your view?
I told you once, I'll say it again
I'll take no... from you!
That's great!

If you want something appetizing,
Something real and satisfying,
I'll be worth a second look, cause that's the only way!

Cause, I won't gonna be, won't be your love du jour
Your playmate of the day, no way, I'll do farewell, bonjour
Cause I won't be caught up in your charm and your allure
No, I'm not gonna be, won't be your lover du jour!
No, I'm not gonna be, won't be your lover du jour!
No, I won't gonna be, won't be your love du jour
The special off the day, no way, I'll do farewell, bonjour!
Pardon my French, but there's no chance in the hell that I'll endure
The fact that I would only be your lover du jour
No, I'm not gonna be, won't be your lover du jour!
Your lover du jour!

I am not for your amusement
I am not a toy, you are nothing but trouble!
You are a bad boy!
I am a tasty ... around a full course meal
Desert after dinner drink, and you can have no feel...

From Here To The Moon And Back

I could hold out my arms, say "I love you this much"
I could tell you how long I will long for your touch
How much and how far would I go to prove
The depth and the breadth of my love for you?

From here to the moon and back
Who else in this world will love you like that?
Love everlasting, I promise you that
From here to the moon and back
From here to the moon and back

I want you to know you can always depend
On promises made and love without end
No need to wonder how faithful I'll be
Now and on into eternity

From here to the moon and back
Who else in this world will love you like that?
Forever and always, I'll be where you're at
From here to the moon and back
From here to the moon and back

I would blow you a kiss from the star where I sat
I would call out your name to echo through the vast
Thank heaven for you and to God, tip my hat
From here to the moon and back
And I'll spend forever just proving that fact
From here to the moon and back

From here to the moon and back...

Try

I have chased after rainbows
I've captured one or two
I've reached for the stars
And I have even held a few
I've walked that lonesome valley
Topped the mountains, sewed a sky
I've laughed and I have cried
But I have always tried

'Cause I've always been a dreamer
And dreams are special things
But dreams are of no value
If they're not equipped with wings
So secure yourself for climbing
Make ready for the sky
Don't let your chance go by
You'll make it if you try

So try to be the first one up the mountain
The highest flying dreamer in the sky
And try your best to be an inspiration
Brothers that are still afraid and shy

And try to make the most of every moment
'Cause if you never try you never win
So try each day to try a little harder
And if you fail, get up and try again

You know nothing is impossible
If you can just believe
Don't live your life in shackles
When faith can be the key
The winner's one who keeps determination in his eyes
Who's not afraid to fly and not afraid to try

So try to be the first one up the mountain
And try to be the first to touch the sky
And don't let somebody tell you, you can't do it
And if they say that, show em it's a lie

And if you fail at first just keep on trying
'Cause you are not a failure in god's eyes
So spread your wings and let the magic happen
'Cause you'll never really know if you don't try

And the first step is the one that's always hardest
But you'll never really know if you don't try
You have to try
