Track Name: I'm Gonna Forgive You Once Again
I'm Gonna Forgive You Again (Larry Raspberry)


I can see you're back, I'm so glad I let you keep the key
I should have known when you finally came around town
You'd think about me
And my friends all said when you showed your face
I should immediately kick you right out of my place
They mean well but the things that my friends can't see
Is that they're just my friends, they're not me
So I say

Chorus
I'm gonna forgive you once again
Cause you ain't done nothing to me
That's such a terrible sin
And it don't matter to me girl, where you've been
I'm so glad to have you back here with me
And I know what it means for you to be so free
So I'm gonna forgive you once again

By now I should know
'Cause you're back, don't mean you're back to stay
And I know you'd never use a door
That didn't swing both ways
And I think I can easily reconcile my mind
To the thoughts that you and me might be wasting our time
Or in fact, in the act I'll be left far behind
With all my negatives weighed
I must still decline and say

I'm gonna forgive you once again
Cause you ain't done nothing to me
That's such a terrible sin
And it don't matter to me girl, where you've been
'Cause your lovin's so good and so strong
That it easily lasts all the time that you're gone
So I'm gonna forgive you once again
Track Name: Desperate Love
Desperate Love (Matt Minglewood)


All alone in a room above a grocery store, trying to feel no pity
The power was down and the lights were out
In the heart of a cold, cold city
The only light, coming in from the night
Was from a searchlight up above
A desperate woman, and a desperate man, they were stuck in desperate love

They played their game and they felt no shame
Living by their own rules
Some called them crazy, some called them evil, some just called them fools
They'd solemnly swore they'd just do one more
Then they'd leave this life behind
Now they're trapped in a room, that's laying heavy with doom
Peaking through the window blind

Chorus
Desperate Love
Desperate Love
Desperate Love

Lying on the floor of the grocery store, is the owner with a gun in his hand
Never stopped to figure, with your hand on the trigger, you're looking at a desperate man
She came from the back with no sign of attack
When her 38 spewed it's lead
She was thinking of her lover, they were heading for cover
Leaving him there for dead

He was a stranger and she liked the danger, of living with a man on the run
She was a loner, he thought he liked to own her, so he could say he had someone
Now they're lying in the dark with two bullets in their heart
As a search lamp shines from above
A desperate woman and a desperate man, they were stuck in desperate love.
Track Name: Crazy
Crazy (Matt Minglewood)


Crazy, people say I'm crazy
To love somebody like you
Bad girl, they all say you're a bad girl
For doin' the things that you do

Chorus
Will I know I should have listened to all my friends
They're only thinking what's best for me
There's just one thing they just don't understand
It's not the pain or misery that I see

Insane, people say I'm insane
To go on this way
Bad pain, they all say it's too much pain
To see me everyday, slipping away

Repeat Chorus Twice

Crazy, (He's Crazy), Crazy, (He's Crazy)
Insane, (He's Insane), Insane (He's Insane)

Crazy (He's Crazy)
I Must Be Insane!!
Track Name: Hank Williams Said It
Hank Williams Said It (Matt Minglewood)


Sitting and drinking, it's quarter past two
What ever happened to him and to you
Sitting there wondering what's he gonna do
You're a long way from lonesome and long way from there
You're too far away, you can't feel his tears
Lord, lord what's he gonna' do

CHORUS
Well his band's on the road as they drive through the rain
Out on a limb with his misery and pain
He just can't say when he'll see you again and it hurts him so
But this here is something he's got to try
God only knows the reason why
Hank Williams said it: "I'm so lonesome I could cry"

Now he's out on a stage, and the house lights are dim
The spotlight is pointing directly at him
Now it's time to leave it all behind
Well they all get to rocking when he starts to play
It's the only time in his lonely day
That he feels quite real and he's got you off his mind

CHORUS
Well the show's almost over, they've done an encore
The crowd's going crazy but his throat is getting sore
But they just keep on playing till they just can't play no more
Down a t a bare in a local hotel
He's feeling no pain and it's easy to tell
That he's coming down from the feelings that swell, when they play like hell

Now he's sitting there drinking, it's quarter past two
What ever happened to him and to you
Sitting there wondering what's he gonna do
Except play the blues

REPEAT FIRST CHORUS
Track Name: The Drinker
The Drinker (Minglewood/Palmer)


I'm just lying here in my bed
Wondering where I put my head
Will I know it's lying around here somewhere
I got drunk last night and the night before
I still don't know what I did that for
And the way I fell right now I just don't care

Well there was me and a bunch of my crazy buddies
Getting all drunked up and smoking hooters in us
I don't' remember what happened after that
But I do know if I was to ask my friends
They'd more than likely want to fill me in
But you know sometimes they exaggerate the facts

CHORUS
Think I'll get up and get me a cold, cold beer
Get my ass on out of here
Go down town and do it all over again
Cause I'm just starting to realize
There ain't nobody gonna sympathize
And this big old bottle is my only friend

That woman of mine she got so damn mad
Said I was really treating her bad
She got up and she walked tight out he door
Well I'm doing my best to try and recall
The reasons why she left at all
It must be my drinking
Could never be the alcohol

CHORUS
Think I'll get up and get me a cold, cold beer
Get my ass on out of here
Go down town and do it all over again
Cause I'm just starting to realize
There ain't nobody gonna sympathize
And this big old bottle is my only friend
Track Name: Hideaway
Hideaway (M MacMillan)

I see the twilight fade
I feel the blood rushing up my back
I see from where I wait
Her daddies name on the big smoke stack
Behind her

A working man ain't got a damn thing
Can't see my way past this crust of bread
But someday man I'm going to change things
No more he'll see her in this big brass bed

CHORUS
Going to find her tonight
I'm going to find her tonight
I'm going to find her tonight
And take her to my hideaway

I'll bet she's never felt a cold wind
Or laid her head on the cold, cold ground
But in my heart I know is no sin
I'll make her love me just to put him down

REPEAT CHORUS

Well he better get it straight if he's thinking of the law
I say he's better of to pay when it sinks in
That she's gone, she's gone, gone
I'm never gonna find her tonight
I'm never gonna find her tonight
Sleeping in her hideaway

REPEAT FIRST VERSE
REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Nicholson Blues
Nicholson Blues (Enver Sampson Jr.)

Well if you've never loved somebody
Then people I guess you just don't know
If you've never loved somebody
Then people I guess you just don't know
You see this thing they call love
Well it's a burning down below

And if you've never had the blues
Then people I think I should explain
If you've never had them lovesick blues
Let me try and explain
You see once you get those blues
Lord, you'll never be the same

And if you've never seen a teardrop
Then take a good look in my eve
If you want to see a teardrop
Then take a good look in my eye
It looks just like the rain
That comes falling from the sky
Track Name: Still Can't Turn You Loose
Still Can't Turn You Loose (Matt Minglewood)

Young boy kneels on the ground by a dog whose day is done
For fourteen years these two have lived as one
But there comes a time when every old dog dies
The boy knows he never should have let it take him by surprise
But he's leaving now that's what the old dog's eyes did say
There are no words; the boy can use to make him stay
'Cause in his heart he knows it ain't no use
He'll turn his head, then he'll turn him loose

Mother stands in the doorway where I lived for sixteen years
Her mind is filled with memories, but her eyes are filled with tears
She doesn't find it one bit funny how time flies
She knows she never should have let it take her by surprise
But I'm leaving home, she knows that's what I'm gonna say
She's searching hard to find the words that will make me stay
But in her heart, she knows it ain't no use
She's better off to turn me loose

Say what you mean, come on try to speak
My stomach's trying to get out and my knees are getting weak
I've never seen that look before in your eyes
I know I never should have let this thing take me by surprise
But you're leaving me, I know that's what you're gonna say
I'm searching hard to find the words that will make you stay
Thought in my heart I know it ain't no use
I still can't turn you loose
I just can't turn you loose
I know it ain't no use
I still can't turn you loose
Track Name: Highway to Your Heart
Highway To Your Heart (M MacMillan)

CHORUS
Talking about the highway, highway
And all of these lonesome miles
Rollin' down the highway, highway
Don't stop me till the end of the line

Well I passed on up through fascination
I saw the road sign in your eye
It's a rough and rocky road but I stayed on
With a detour around my pride

Straight ahead on the road to real love
Where your light shines in the dark
Straight ahead on the road I'll be love
Back on the highway to your heart

REPEAT CHORUS

Fill me up with sweet devotion
When I'm dry you've got a potion
To keep my holding on
Yeah, you keep me holding on
Oh, Oh you, you get me down the rocky road

REPEAT CHORUS

With the needle on E up through the high hills
With a U-turn on my mind
But your heavenly touch gave me a refill
Now I'm shifting into overdrive

REPEAT CHORUS
