Track Name: Somebody's Angel
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

Track Name: I Play
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
Track Name: Long Days
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

Track Name: That Ain't In My DNA
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.
Track Name: Anything Goes
ANYTHING GOES

VERSE

BILLY’S SHAVIN’ IN THE SHOWER GOIN’ DOWNTOWN IN AN HOUR
HE’S BOUNCIN’ BACK SINCE SUSIE SAID GOOD-BYE
HANNAS HAD ENOUGH OF LONELY WITHOUT HER ONE AND ONLY

BILLS GOT ON HIS “RUNNIN’ ‘ROUND BOOTS”
HANNAS IN HER “STEPPIN’ OUT SHOES”
ALL IS FAIR IT’S A “TAKE NO PRISONER NIGHT”

CHORUS

ANYTHING GOES WHEN EVERYTHING’S GONE
THERE’S NO HOLDIN’ BACK ONCE A HEART LET’S GO OF HOLDIN’ ON
THEY’RE GONNA BUST OUT CUT LOOSE GET DOWN GET LOUD HONKYTONK TILL DAWN
ANYTHING GOES WHEN EVERYTHING’S GONE


VERSE

BILL SPOTS HER ON THE DANCE FLOOR SHE LOOKS GOOD HE WANTS TO SEE MORE
HE CUTS IN THINKIN’ “THIS COULD BE MY LUCKY NIGHT”
HANNA’S WATCHIN’ HIM THE SAME WAY WANTS TO LEARN MORE THAN HIS FIRST NAME
AS THEY DANCE AROUND THEY HOLD EACH OTHER TIGHT
HER “OLD EX” FADED IN HER ARMS
HIS “OLD FLAME” WENT OUT IN HIS HEART
THEY SMILE AT EACH OTHER AND WHISPER “YOUR PLACE OR MINE”


CHORUS

ANYTHING GOES WHEN EVERYTHING’S GONE
THERE’S NO HOLDIN’ BACK ONCE A HEART LETS GO OF HOLDIN’ ON
THEY’RE GONNA BUST OUT CUT LOOSE GET DOWN GET LOUD HONKYTONK TILL DAWN
ANYTHING GOES WHEN EVERYTHING’S GONE
Track Name: J.K. Coltrain & Kerry Wallace - Years w/Kerry Wallace
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
Track Name: Troubadour w/Kerry Wallace
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

Track Name: Give Me Everything He Doesn't Want
GIVE ME EVERYTHING

VERSE

FROM WHERE I’M STANDING I CAN SEE MY DREAMS
THEY’RE COMING TRUE JUST NOT FOR ME
THE HOUSE THE TWO KIDS YOU IN THE BACKYARD
WATCHING THEM PLAY HIDE AND SEEK
BUT HE’S NOT THERE TO HEAR YOU LAUGH
HE TAKES FOR GRANTED ALL HE HAS

CHORUS

GIVE ME EVERYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT
I’LL DO ANYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT TO DO
I’LL KISS YOU HOLD YOU LIVE TO SHOW YOU
EVERYDAY THAT YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE
GIVE ME EVERYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT

VERSE

IF I IMAGINE WATCHING YOU WAKE UP
IT SLOWLY TAKES MY BREATH AWAY
WHEN HE’S GONE YOU CAN’T SLEEP YOU LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
YOU KEEP PRAYING THAT HE’LL CHANGE
BUT HE’S GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN STAY AT HOME LOVING YOU

CHORUS

GIVE ME EVERYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT
I’LL DO ANYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT TO DO
I’LL KISS YOU HOLD YOU LIVE TO SHOW YOU
EVERYDAY THAT YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE
GIVE ME EVERYTHING HE DOESN’T WANT
Track Name: I Had To Know The Bad Times
I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES.


CHORUS.
I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES TO KNOW HOW GOOD GOOD TIMES COULD BE
YOU SHOWED ME THE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU GAVE YOUR LOVE TO ME
I JUST LAID DOWN MY DEFENSES YOUR LOVE SET THEM FREE
BUT I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES TO KNOW HOW GOOD GOOD TIMES COULD BE

NOW I'M WRAPPED UP IN THE ARMS OF LOVE
AND I'VE NEVER FELT SO GOOD
IF I'M LOOKING SATISFIED IT'S ALL BECAUSE OF YOU
IT TOOK YOUR SPECIAL KIND OF LOVING
BUT NOW AT LAST I SEE
I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES TO KNOW HOW GOOD GOOD TIMES COULD BE

TURNAROUND.

REPEAT CHORUS

YOU'RE THE KIND YOU ONLY FIND ONE TIME IN A LIFE
THE JOY AND GENTLENESS YOU BRING ALMOST MAKES ME CRY
AND SINCE YOU I CAN'T BELIEVE THE CHANGE I SEE IN ME
BUT I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES TO KNOW HOW GOOD GOOD TIMES COULD BE
YES I HAD TO KNOW THE BAD TIMES TO KNOW HOW GOOD GOOD TIMES COULD BE.
Track Name: Bring Your Broken Heart To Me
BRING YOUR BROKEN HEART TO ME

GIRL, THERE'S A SADNESS IN YOUR EYES
I CAN SEE THE HURT FROM ALL THOSE PRETTY LIES
I KNOW YOU CAN'T GO DOWN ROAD AGAIN
BUT I COULD CHANGE YOUR WORLD, IF YOU'D JUST LET ME IN..

CHORUS
BRING YOUR BROKEN HEART TO ME
GIVE ME JUST ONE CHANCE TO MAKE IT BETTER..
PUT IT BACK TOGETHER
I AM HERE TO SYMPATHIZE AND SOMEDAY SOON YOU'LL REALIZE THAT LOVE CAN BE FOREVER GIRL YOU'LL SEE
IF YOU BRING YOUR BROKEN HEART TO ME

VERSE
I KNOW WHAT A BROKEN HEART'S ABOUT
I CAN SEE YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT
AND THOUGH IT'S A LUCKY CHANCE WE MET
I WILL NEVER GIVE YOU REASON TO REGRET

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
TELL ME GIRL WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND
DON'T BE AFRAID
MY HEART IS WAITING .. WAITING..
