Ace of Hearts
(lonnie wilson,ron moore,carson chamberlain)

Love's a gamble every heart will take
You roll the dice in hopes that it won't break
One night I bet on your blue eyes and took a chance
And won a whole lot more than one night of romance

I won the ace of hearts,that night in the dark
How lucky can one man be
I hold the winning hand any way life deals the cards
No way to lose, cause I've got you my ace of hearts

Love's a numbered wheel you have to spin
There's no need for me to spin again
Cause loving you is paying off more than I knew
I took a little risk and hit it big with you

Here in the Real World
Here in the real world

Cowboys don't cry, and heroes don't die
Good always wins, again and again
Love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, I'd never be blue

Chorus
But here in the real world
It's not that easy at all
'cause when hearts get broken
It's real tears that fall
And darlin' it's sad but true
But the one thing I've learned from you
Is how the boy don't always get the girl
Here in the real world

I gave you my love, but that wasn't enough
To hold your heart when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen
It'll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would
Repeat

Repeat chorus

No, the boy don't always get the girl

Blue Blooded Woman
Blue blooded womans

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

The lady I love loves silk and satin
She was raised uptown with a silver spoon
Well, I was born on a farm just south of jackson
We had an old ford tractor and a country moon

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She's saks fifth avenue perfection
Caviar and dignified
Well, I live my life in wal mart fashion
And I like my sushi southern fried

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She's a blue blooded woman, I'm a redneck man.back to top
Wanted
(alan jackson/charlie craig)

Excuse me, ma'am, can you help me
I need to place an ad with you today
No ma'am, tomorrow may be too late
I'd like to have it started right away

What's that, no this is personal
I'm not buying or selling anything
Yes ma'am, I know just what to say
I wrote it down, this is how it should read

Wanted one good hearted woman
To forgive imperfection
In the man that she loves
Wanted just one chance to tell her
How much he stills loves her
He can't be sorry enough

What's that, no thats all I wanna say
I just hope these few lines will get to her
Yes ma'am, she means everything
I hope she comes back when she reads these words

Wanted one good hearted woman
To forgive imperfection
In the man that she loves
Wanted just one chance to tell her
How much he stills loves her
He can't be sorry enough

Chasin' That Neon Rainbow
(alan jackson/jim mcbride)

Daddy won a radio
Tuned it to a country show
I was rocking in the cradle to the crying of a steel guitar
Mama used to sing to me
She taught me that sweet harmony
Now she worries 'cause she never thought
I'd ever really take it this far
Singing in the bars and

Chasin' the neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream
'cause all I've ever wanted
Is too pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
Chasin' that neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream

An atlas and a coffe cup
Five pickers in an old dodge truck
Heading down to houston for a show on saturday night
This overhead is killing me
Half the time I sing for free
But when the crowd's into it
Lord it makes this thing I doing seem right
Standing in the spotlight

Chasin' the neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream
'cause all I've ever wanted
Is too pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
Chasin' that neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream

Daddy's got a radio
He won it thrity years ago
He said 'son I just now we're gonna hear you singing on it someday' i
Made it up to music row lordy don't the wheels turn slow but I wouldn't
Trade a minute I wouldn't have it any other way just show me to the
Stage

I'm chasin' the neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream
'cause all I've ever wanted
Is too pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
Chasin' that neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream
I'm chasin' the neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dreamback to top
She Don't Get the Blues
Well she puts her dancing shoes on every night
And comes alive there in the smoke beneath the neon lights
And she don't like those hurtinsongs
Cause she's already lived ‘em
She don't get the blues, she gives ‘em

Well she checks her broken heart there at the door
She ain't looking for romance, she's danced that dance before
Well I pity the next poor fool that gets caught up in her rhythm
Cause she don't get the blues, she gives ‘em

She's been on the losing end of love too many times
And she ain't gonna go for anything you've got in mind
So before you start let me impart
These few words of wisdom
She don't get the blues, she gives ‘em

She's been on the losing end of love too many times
And she ain't gonna go for anything you've got in mind
So before you start let me impart
These few words of wisdom
She don't get the blues, she gives ‘em

No she don't get the blues, lord she gives ‘emback to top
I'd Love You All Over Again
Has it been ten years
Since we said I do
I've always heard marriage made one seem like two
But you're looking better than you did back then
You still make this old heart give in

(chorus)
And if I had it to do all over
I'd do it all over again
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again

The preacher man said til death do us part
That seemed like forever to a young man's heart
Now the days seem much shorter
The longer we love
And the memories just keep adding up

(repeat chorus)

If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over againback to top
Dog River Blues
Well I first kissed you on a hollow log
Down by the river they call the dog
We fell in love and we vowed that day
Like the flow of the river our love won't change
Well we married that spring and we built a house
On the bank of the river where the rock juts out
Now the river's still here but you're long gone
You left me and the river here all alone

I got the dog river blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the dog river blues

Well the rain came down and the river rose up
Filled up the cab on my pickup truck
It came in the house and down the hall
And washed your picture right off the wall

Chorus

Well my heart still yearns and the river still rolls
And I pray someday it'll bring you home
So if you change your mind honey I'll be here
Waiting on the banks of that oldog river

Home
(alan jackson)

In a small town down in georgia over forty years ago
Her maiden name was musik til she met that jackson boy
They married young like folks did then, not a penny to their name
But they believe the one you vow to love
Should always stay that same

And on the land his daddy gave him, a foundation under way
For a love to last forever or until their dying day
They built a bond that's strong enough to stand the test of time
And a place for us to turn to when our lives were in a bind

And they made their house from a toolshed
Grandaddy rolled down on two logs
And they builts walls all around it
And they made that house a home
They taught us 'bout good living
They taught is right and wrong
Lord there'll never be another place
In this world I'll call home

My momma raised five children, four girls then there was me
She found her strength with faith in gof and love of family
She never had a social life, home was all she knew
Except the time she took a job, to play a bill or two

My daddy skinned his knuckles on the cars that he repaired
He never earned much money but he gane us all he had
He never made the front page but he did the best he couold
And folks drove their cars from miles around
To let him look underneath the hood

And they made their house from a toolshed
Grandaddy rolled down on two logs
And they builts walls all around it
And they made that house a home
They taught us 'bout good living
They taught is right and wrong
Lord there'll never be another place
In this world I'll call home
No there'll never be another place in this world
That I'll call homeback to top
Short Sweet Ride
I could see it coming from a mile away
A heartache lookinfor a place to stay
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool
Lord can't a woman make a man a fool

It's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman ‘til he goes insane
It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train

I was drunk and crazy from her sweet perfume
But I knew stone sober I was being used
Now the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne
She took all she wanted then she was gone

Chorus

It was almost worth if for the time we spent
But there ain't no future in a heart for rent
Still she taught me something ‘bout the facts of life
Love cuts quicker than a switchblade knife

Chorus

It's a short sweet ride on a runaway trainback to top
