Somebody's Angel There's a man who's always there for her Another man who's hardly there at all One who dries her tears While the other one is usually the cause The shoulder that she cries on deserves so much more than her tears While the one whose love she'd die for doesn't notice or simply doesn't care She's somebody's angel, somebody's fool Someone someone worships Someone for someone to use It's a sad situation, what's she gonna do She's somebody's angel, somebody's fool Turnaround (Bridge) All she ever wanted was one man to share her love Both of them come close but neither one comes close enough She's somebody's angel, somebody's fool Someone someone worships Someone for someone to use It's a sad situation, what's she gonna do She's somebody's angel, somebody's fool Lonnie C.

I Play 03:08
I Play Sometimes I grab that old 6 string Play some chords and try to sing to a crowd or just to myself. I've stood under neon lights watched the morning into night tasted whiskey that came straight from hell It don't matter where I am or if anyone is listening I find comfort with this guitar in my hand ( I Play) And I play cause thats what I love doing I play as long as I can do it No I don't care the time or the place The world is my stage, I play. I have had my loves in life Some were wrong and some were right But theres nothing like a perfect melody Its never left me all alone If I'm by myself or holdin on To someone that I think is meant for me Yeah there is something in a song that always lives on Even when you're long gone Chorus Repeat

Long Days 03:27
Long Days Walter Hudson's up at daylight A habit now of sixty some odd years There really ain't much reason 'Cause not that much needs doing around there Forty acres on the edge of town He paid the bank off fifteen years ago He buried Martha last November And for the first time Walter's startin' to feel old (Chorus) All those long days Muscles strained and shoulders bent All those long days He thought would never end Long days without slack End to end and back to back They don't add up, the answer isn't clear How'd those long days turn into such short years (1/2 Verse) The old corral is falling down He'll have to fix that up before too long That's where old Jett threw Jimmy And Walter had to make him crawl back on (Bridge) Leave those muddy boots outside the door Or mama's gonna skin you boys alive Walter hears those sounds from long ago And like old friends they're welcome to drop by (Repeat Chorus) (Tag) Walter Hudson's up at daylight A habit now of sixty some odd years Copr.

THAT AIN’T IN MY DNA You want me to be the kind that lives to party… Takes a Limousine to the office every day The kind that’ll be vice-pres’ dent of your Daddy’s company Well, Baby, that ain’t in my DNA. CHORUS: I’m country born and country bred and that’s how I aim to stay, Though you’ve been tryin’ to school me, to your high-fa lootin way. This country boy ain’t never put on airs and I ain’t gonna start today.. Baby, that ain’t in my DNA. I ain’t gonna hang out in places, I don’t want to be With your fickle friends and deceptive games they play. Well this kind of life your livin’ just ain’t gonna work for me ‘Cause Baby, that ain’t in my DNA.

Years (writers: Rhonda Fleming / Dennis Morgan) Faded photographs, the feelings all come back Even now sometimes you feel so near And I still see your face like it was yesterday It's strange how the days turned into years Years of hanging on to dreams already gone Years of wishing you were here After all this time you think I wouldn't cry It's just that I still love you after all these years Night time gently falls, another day is gone I turn around to find you're still not here I leave the hall light on in case you come back home, finally I've been saying that for years Years of hanging on to dreams already gone Years of wishing you were here After all this time you think I wouldn't cry It's just that I still love you after all these years After all these years

Troubadour When your last song's been sung and you're all alone When the music fades and the crowd's are gone You can ask yourself as they drift away Did the people hear what you had to say Did you touch their lives did you reach their soul Did you warm a heart that was growing cold Did you open eyes did you rattle bones Did you let 'em know they were not alone .. then (Chorus) Say goodnight troubadour Walk away .. there's nothing more Tonight you'll sleep the sleep of an honest man And tomorrow my friend .. you'll do it all again Say goodnight troubadour (Inst) How the miles fly by as your tires wear thin And your future lies beyond that next bend You're a troubadour who sings for their pay So say goodnight and walk away (Chorus) Say goodnight troubadour Walk away .. there's nothing more Tonight you'll sleep the sleep of an honest man And tomorrow my friend .. you'll do it all again Say goodnight troubadour (Repeat Chorus) (Repeat Chorus) to FADE Lonnie C.
