    Saturday Night (Is The Loneliest Night) - Frank Sinatra

    Saturday Night is the loneliest night of the week
    'Cause that's the night that my sweetie and I used to dance
    cheek to cheek
    I don't mind Sunday night at all
    'Cause that's the night friends come to call
    And Monday through Friday go fast,
    and another week is past -

    But Saturday night is the loneliest night of the week;
    I sing the song that I sing for the mem'ries I usually seek
    Until I hear you at the door, Til your in my arms once more,
    Saturday night is the loneliest night of the week.

    Roses Cantina...
    Marty Robbins

    Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
    Nighttime would find me in Rose's Cantina,
    Music would play and Felina would whirl.

    Black as the night were the eyes of Felina,
    Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
    My love was strong for this Mexican maiden,
    I was in love, but in vain I could tell.

    One night a wild young cowboy came in, wild as the West Texas wind...
    Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing,
    With wicked Felina, the girl that I love.

    So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden;
    Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
    My challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat
    The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.

    Just for a moment I stood there in silence,
    Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done.
    Many thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there;
    I had but one chance and that was to run.

    Out through the back door of Rose's I ran, out where the horses were tied...
    I picked a good one; he looked like he could run,
    Up on his back and away I did ride.

    Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso,
    Out through the badlands of New Mexico.
    Back in El Paso my life would be worthless;
    Everything's gone in life nothing is left.

    But it's been so long since I've seen the young maiden,
    My love is stronger that my fear of death.
    I saddled up and away I did go, riding alone in the dark...
    Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me,
    Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart.

    And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso,
    I can see Rose's Cantina below.
    My love is strong and it pushes me onward, down off the hill to Felina I go.

    Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys,
    Off to my left ride a dozen or more.
    shouting and shooting; I can't let them catch me,
    I've got to make it to Rose's back door.

    Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel a deep burning pain in my side
    It's getting harder to stay in the saddle.
    I'm getting weary, unable to ride.

    But my love for Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen;
    Though I am weary, I can't stop to rest.
    I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle,
    I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.

    From out of nowhere, Felina has found me,
    Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
    Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for,
    One little kiss and Felina good-bye.

    White Sport Coat - Marty Robbins

    white sport coat and a pink carnation
    I'm all dressed up for the dance.
    A white sport coat and a pink carnation,
    I'm all alone in romance.

    Once you told me long ago, to the prom with me
    you'd go, now you've changed your mind,
    it seems someone else will hold my dreams.
    A white sport coat and a pink carnation,
    I'm in a blue, blue mood.

    There's A Tear In My Beer
    Hank williams Junior

    There's a tear in my beer
    'cause I'm cryin' for you,dear
    you are on my lonely mind.
    Into these last nine beers
    I have shed a million tears.
    You are on my lonely mind
    I'm gonna keep drinkin'
    until I'm petrified.
    And then maybe these tears
    will leave my eyes.
    There's a tear in my beer
    cause I'm crying' for you dear
    You are on my lonely mind.

    Last night I walked the floor
    and the night before
    You are on my lonely mind.
    It seems my life is through
    and I'm so doggone blue
    You are on my lonely mind.
    I'm gonna keep drinkin'
    till I can't move a toe
    and then maybe my heart
    won't hurt me so.
    There's a tear in my beer
    cause I'm cryin' for you dear
    You are on my lonely mind.

    Lord, I've tried and I've tried
    But my tears I can't hide
    You are on my lonely mind.
    All these blues that I've found
    Have really got me down
    You are on my lonely mind
    I'm gonna keep drinkin'
    till I can't even think
    Cause in the last week
    I ain't slept a wink
    There's a tear in my beer
    cause I'm crying for you dear
    You are on my lonely mind.

    I loves me the Statler Brothers...let's go to "The Movies..."

    I love Captain Blood and Elmer Fudd and Charlie Chan
    Ben Ben Hur The Way We Were True Grit and Music Man
    Thunderball and Walking Tall and Jaws and Jesse James
    Doctor No and Vertigo and Singing in the Rain singing in the rain
    Blood and Sand and Santa Fe Dunaway and Gataway Mexicali Rose and Rose Marie
    Blackboard Jungle Jungle Jim Jim Thorpe All American
    An American In Paris Paris Blues Blue Hawaii
    I'm Teacher's Pet on Ship of Fools the movies were my special school
    I'm the Gradute of Twelve o'clock High
    The movies are great medicine I thank you Tommy Edison
    For giving us the best years of our lives
    One flew over the cuckoo's nest the movies are the craziest
    I'll be a movie nut until I die
    The movies are great medicine thank you Tommy Edison
    For giving us the best years of our lives (Roy Rogers)
    You gave us the best years of our lives
    And the classic...

    It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
    Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light
    And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
    So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

    Countin' flowers on the wall
    That don't bother me at all
    Playin' solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
    Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
    Now don't tell me I've nothin' to do
    --Flowers On the Wall

    Indeed.

    Sometimes you dream, sometimes it seems
    There's nothing there at all
    You just seem older than yesterday
    And you're waiting for tomorrow to call

    You draw to the curtain and one thing's for certain
    You're cozy in your little room
    The carpet's all paid for, God bless the TV
    Let's go shoot a hole in the moon

    And Roy Rogers is riding tonight
    Returning to our silver screens
    Comic book characters never grow old
    Evergreen heroes whose stories were told
    Oh the great sequin cowboy who sings of the plains
    Of roundups and rustlers and home on the range
    Turn on the T.V., shut out the lights
    Roy Rogers is riding tonight

    Nine o'clock mornings, five o'clock evenings
    I'd liven the pace if I could
    Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese
    But complaining wouldn't do any good

    Lay back in my armchair, close eyes and think clear
    I can hear hoofbeats ahead
    Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop
    While the wife and the kids are in bed



    Roy Rogers -- Elton John

    If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me
    If I said you were the devil would you treat me like an angel tonight
    If I was dyin' of thirst, would your love come and quench me
    If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me?

    --Bellamy Brothers

    Betty runs a trailer park, Jan sells Tupperware
    Randy's on an insane ward, and Betty's on welfare
    Charlie took a job with Ford, and Joe took Eddie's wife
    Charlotte took a millionaire, and Freddie took his life.

    John is big in cattle. Ray is deep in debt.
    Where Mavis finally wound up is anybody's bet
    Linda married Sonny, Brenda married me
    and the class of all of us is just part of history.

    But the class of '57 had its dreams
    But living life day to day is never what it seems
    Things get complicated when you get past 18..

    But the Class of 57 had its dreams.

    --The Statler Brothers

    Ricky Skaggs I Wouldn't Change You If I Could Lyrics


    ! Love this song !!!!

    I wouldn't change a single thing about you if I could
    The way you are just suits me too a tee
    A princess in a storybook
    A king upon his throne
    That’s what we are and you belong too me.

    CHOURS
    I wouldn't change you if I could
    I love you as you are
    You’re all that I would wish for
    If I wished upon a star
    An angel sent from heaven
    you're everything that’s good
    you're perfect just the way you are
    I wouldn't change you if I could.

    Your eyes your lips, your tender smile
    I’d leave them as they are
    And come what may I’d never change a thing
    And if I were a potter
    And you a piece of clay
    The only thing I’d change would be your name

    CHOURS
    I wouldn't change you if I could
    I love you as you are
    You’re all that I would wish for
    If I wished upon a star
    An angel sent from heaven
    you're everything that’s good
    you’re perfect just the way you are
    I wouldn't change you if I could.

    Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
    It haunted me from the start
    Something inside of me started a symphony
    Zing! Went the strings of my heart

    'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing
    About a nest set apart
    All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
    Zing! Went the strings of my heart

    Your eyes made skies seem blue again
    What else could I do again
    But keep repeating through and through
    "I love you, love you"

    I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
    I hope 'twill never depart
    Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine
    Zing! Went the strings of my heart

    "Can't Repeat" The Offspring

    I woke the other day
    And saw my world has changed
    The past is over but tomorrow‘s wishful thinking
    I can‘t hold on what‘s been done
    I can‘t grab on what‘s to come
    And I‘m just wishing I could stop, but

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe these eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    Memories are bittersweet
    good times we can‘t repeat
    Those days are gone and we can never get them back
    Now we must move ahead
    Despite our fear and dread
    We‘re all just wishing we could stop, but

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe your eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    With all our joys and fears
    Wrapped in forgotten years
    The past is laughing as today just slips away
    Time tears down what we‘ve made
    And sets another stage
    And I‘m just wishing we could stop

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe these eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    Have they laughed too much
    Do their dry voices crack
    talking of things gone by
    have they cried too much
    A tear or two still always seems
    To cloud the eye

    They tremble as they watch the old silver clock
    When day is through
    tick tock oh so slow
    It says yes it says no
    It says I wait for you
    Old Folks - John Denver

    For the children and the flowers
    Are my sisters and my brothers
    Their laughter and their loveliness
    Could clear a cloudy day

    Like the music of the mountains
    And the colours of the rainbow
    They're a promise of the future
    And a blessing for today
    Rhymes And Reasons - John Denver

    Posion - Something To Believe In

    (by the way in case anyone didn't know this this song is dedicated to Bret Michales father a Korean vet)

    Well I see him on the tv
    Preachin bout the promised land
    He tells me to believe in jesus
    And steals the money from my hand

    Some say he was a good man
    But lord I think he sinned, yeah

    Twenty-two years of mental tears
    Cries a suicidal vietnam vet
    Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
    To find his country didnt want him back

    Their bullets took his best friend in saigon
    Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets
    In a time I dont remember
    In a war he cant forget

    He cried forgive me for what Ive done there
    Cause I never meant the things I did

    Chorus:
    And give me something to believe in
    If theres a lord above
    And give me something to believe in
    Oh, lord arise

    My best friend died a lonely man
    In some palm springs hotel room
    I got the call last christmas eve
    And they told me the news

    I tried all night not to break down and cry
    As the tears rolled down my face
    I felt so cold and empty
    Like a lost soul out of place

    And the mirror, mirror on the wall
    Sees my smile it fades again

    Chorus

    Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now
    The things I didnt know then
    Road you gotta take me home

    Solo

    I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
    Like bodies in an open grave
    Underneath the broken old neon sign
    That used to read jesus saves

    A mile away live the rich folks
    And I see how theyre living it up
    While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
    The rich is drinkin from a golden cup

    And it just makes me wonder
    Why so many lose, so few win

    Chorus

    You take the high road
    And Ill take the low road

    Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now
    The things I didnt know then

    And give me something to believe in

    Mama tries hard to pretend
    That things will get better again
    Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
    But finally the tears fill our eyes
    And I know that somewhere tonight
    She knows how much we really miss her

    Shannon is gone
    I hope she's drifting out to sea
    She always loved to swim away
    Maybe she'll find an island
    With a shaded tree
    Just like the one in our back yard ...
    Just like the one in our back yard .........

    Through all those
    Complex years
    I thought I was alone
    I didn't care to look around
    And make this world my own
    And when she died
    I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
    Left me incomplete
    All alone as the memories still remain
