    Rock Bottom

    Words and Music by Buddy Buie and J.R. Cobb

    When you hit rock bottom
    You've got two ways to go
    Straight up
    And sideways
    I have seen my share of hard times
    And I

    Only Love

    Words and Music by Marcus Hummon and Roger Murrah

    I have sailed a boat or two
    Out on the wild blue
    Yonder to dreams that rarely come true
    As far as I can see
    From the island of green
    I can put my trust in just one thing

    (Chorus)

    And only love sails straight from the harbor
    And only love will lead us to the other shore
    Out of all the flags I've flown
    One flies high and stands alone
    Only love

    Peaceful waters, raging sea

    Let's Make A Baby King

    Lyrics and Music by Jesse Winchester

    Once upon a Christmas morning
    There was a pretty little baby boy
    It seems like I remember sadness
    Mingling in the joy
    For Mary saw the future
    And the sadness it would bring
    And that's when Mary started crying
    When she heard the angels sing

    (Chorus)

    Father Sun

    Written by Karla Bonoff

    Everywhere I look the sun is shining
    But it's always raining here inside
    I can see
    You really had a hold on me
    It's a mean old love
    With a flame that never dies

    Won't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    Everywhere I go you're in my shadow
    When I turn around there's no one there
    And it's a real bad sign
    I'm walking on a real thin line
    A fool in love with a fool that never cared

    So won't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye
    Won't you tell me why

    Ask anyone you know
    And they'll say love fades away
    But this heart's crying just like yesterday

    And it's a real bad sign
    I'm walking on a real thin line
    A fool in love with a fool that never cared

    So won't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    Won't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    I Just Drove By

    Words and Music by Kimmie Rhodes

    I always go the other way
    But my car drove me down today
    To a little house on the older side of town
    Back when things were never hard
    I used to play there in that yard
    And I just drove by to see if things had changed

    Cokes were just a nickel then
    And across the street at the Five and Ten
    A lot of things were cheap and square and strange
    And the life we had might have been
    But it was one we loved believing in
    And I just drove by to see if things had changed

    I wondered now
    If love is still the way it was back then
    I need to know
    That life is still a place worth living in
    There it is, just like it was
    A house where there was always love
    I just drove by to see if things had changed
