(That's What I Like) In My Woman
(M.Moore)

You say she's got a mind of her own
I like that in my woman
You say she's crazy, I really don't know
That's what I love in my woman

And I think I'm gettin' crazy
I might be gettin' lazy
I just don't want to look any more
'Cause I found you
I found you
I found you
I found you

You say she wants to
Take a little stroll
Down by the river
Every evenin'

I just might take
Myself a little stroll
Down by the river
Every evenin'

I think I'm gettin' crazy
I must be gettin' lazy
I just don't want to look any more
'Cause I found you
I found you
I found you
I found youback to top
Where Am I Now
(Davis/Angelus)

Morning sun risin'
On an empty avenue
No surprise
Memorizin' faces I once new

But there's a stranger
In the mirror
Seems familiar
Like a sketch
That I once drew

I thought time
Was my partner
Now my clock is frozen so it seems
Used to be
My own best friend was me

There's a stranger
In the mirror
Seems familiar
Like a sketch
That I once drew
Where am I now
When I need me
Where am I now
When I need me

I been livin' for myself
I been around or so it seems
Used to be
My own best friend was me

But there's this thing in the mirror now
Seems familiar
Like a sketch
That I once drew
Where am I now
When I need me
Where am I now
When I need meback to top
I Think It's Going to Rain Today
(R.Newman)

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain todayback to top
Forgive Me Now
(M.Moore)

Forgive me now
I think I've missed my whole reason
I'm ashamed for things I left undone

Don't break away
Sometimes we all need your protection
Even the mildest form of love is love
I get high hopes
And I have new dreams
Then comes a strong wave of emotion
And they scatter through the fingers of my life

Come save me now
I think I pay more attention
I guess I was rollin' way to high (to hear)

Don't break away
Sometimes we all need your protection
Even the mildest form of love is love
I get high hopes
I have new dreams
Then comes a strong wave of emotion
And they scatter through the fingers of my life

And I get high hopes
I have new dreams
Then comes a strong wave of emotion
And they scatter through the fingers of my lifeback to top
Oh Mama
(J.Price)

Oh mama
I don't want to feel this way
Oh, no not another day, please
Oh mama
Take me home
I don't want to be alone no more mama

I try to kick him off
But he hangs around
I try to stand up
But I fall back down

Rescue
A mean ol' man's
Got a hook on me
Oh mama

Oh mama
I try to kick him off
But he hangs around
I try to stand up
But I fall back down

Oh mama
It's so cold
I just don't know no more

Oh mama
Oh mamaback to top
Lucinda
(R.Newman)

Lucinda
We met one summer evening
As the sun was going down
She was lying on the beach
In her graduation gown
She was wrapped up in a blanket
(I could tell she knew her way around)
And as I lay down beside her
You know she never made a sound
On down the beach came the beach-cleaning man
Scoopin' up the papers and flattening down the sand
"Lucinda, Lucinda, Lucinda - we've got to run away
That big white truck is closin' in
And we'll get wounded if we stay"
Now Lucinda lies buried 'neath the California sand
Put under by the beach-cleaning man
Lucinda, Lucinda, Lucinda - why'd you have to go?
They sent her to high school
hey sent her to low school
She just wouldn't go furtherback to top
If I Love You
(D.Moore)

If I love you
Will you understand
When I fall ya'
Will you go
Will you leave me
When I let you down
Tell me darlin'
Let me know

Love will bring you joy
Love will ease your pain
It's so helpful
An it's so kind
But when it's gone
I feel like dyin'
Tell me darlin'
What's on your mind

If I lose you
I will understand
But my heart it'll never heal
Because I love you
And I need to know
Tell me darlin'
What you feel

If I love you
Will you understand
When I fall you
Will you goback to top
Jamaica Say You Will
(J.Browne)

Jamaica was the lovely one, I played her well
As we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell
Hiding from the children so they would not tell
We would stay there 'till her sister rang the evening bell

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill these empty hours
Say you will come again tomorrow

The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas
She would stare across the water from the trees
Last time he was home he held her on his knees
And said the next time they would sail away just where they pleased

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill these lifeless sails
And stay until my ships can find the sea

Jamaica was a sweet young one, I loved her true
She was a comfort and a mercy through and through
Hiding from this world together, next thing I knew
We had brought her things down to the bay
- what could I do

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill these sails
And we will sail until our waters have run dryback to top
It's All Over But the Shoutin'
(Hinton/Bristol)

Said it's all over but the shoutin' ya'll
It's all over but the shoutin' ya'll
After many sleepless nights alone
Believin' lies about where you've been gone
Well I hear the people whisper
Why's he never with her
And quickly hanging up their phone

Oh I put them all together
And it spelled sadness forever
And if I'm gonna change my fate
I'm gonna get out before it's too late
Said it's all over but the shoutin' ya'll
Well, well, well it's all over but the shoutin' ya'll

So pretend to be surprised
About the love that I've been denied
Once I thought that we could make it
But I couldn't fake it
So I'd rather let the whole thing ride
Oh and maybe in some time
I'll free your memory from my mind
Oh 'cause there's no turning back the clock
I've put you down boy
You've been counted out
And it's all over but the shoutin' ya'll
It's all over but the shoutin'

So if every thing's been said
I'll go prepare for the road ahead
Though at first I'll be regretting
Soon I'll start regretting
Till you're finally out of my head

Oh and one day, if I'm lucky
Someone's gonna come and love me oh
And fill my life with love each day
Till then all I have to say
That it's all, it's all over
Said it's all over
Said it's all over but the shoutin' ya'll
Well, well, well it's all overback to top
