    Change Of Heart

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd

    When you were mine
    I was still playing
    And promises that I made
    Were just words I was saying
    I was playing you for a fool
    Breaking love's precious rule
    I did you so wrong
    Guess you knew all along

    That I had my boss lie for me
    To say I was working late
    My friends alibied for me
    When I'd slip out to meet a date
    But, baby, now I see
    I was only cheating me
    Before you go
    I just want you to know

    (Chorus)

    That I've had a change of heart
    I've had a change of heart
    I see what I put you through
    And I'll make it up to you
    I've had a change of heart

    I've just got to show you
    How differently I feel
    That I can be true to you
    That my love is real
    But my past will forever haunt me
    If you say that you don't want me
    I'm down on my knees
    I'm beggin' you please, won't you?

    Have a change of heart
    Please have a, have a change of heart
    I see what I put you through
    I'll make it up to you
    Please have a change of heart
    Please have a change of heart
    Please have a change of heart

    Girls Night Out

    Words and Music by Brent Maher and Jeffery Hawthorne Bullock

    Friday finally came around
    This girl's ready to paint the town
    Tonight ain't nothin' gonna slow me down

    I did my time workin' all week
    Tonight's all mine, tomorrow I'll sleep
    I wanna hear a band with a country sound

    Well, I've been couped up all week long
    I've been workin' my fingers to the bone

    (Chorus)

    Well, it's a girl's night out
    Honey, there ain't no doubt
    I'm gonna dance every dance 'til the boys go home
    Well, it's my night to rock
    No watchin' that ol' clock
    Oh, ain't no doubt, Lordy it's a girl's night out

    Two step or the Cotton Eye Joe
    They can play 'em fast or they can play 'em slow
    I can do 'em all just show me the floor
    You can give me a little rock 'n roll
    Or even a waltz with the lights down low
    I'll still be dancin' when they close the door

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Have Mercy

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerly

    Well, I was standing in line at the city bus stop
    Soaked to the skin from ev'ry rain drop
    I see you driving by just like a phantom jet
    With your arm around some little brunette

    You say you won't be home because you're working late
    Honey, I'm no fool, you've been out on a date
    The lipstick on your collar gives your game away
    It's strawberry red and mine's pink rose

    (Chorus)

    Have mercy on me
    You treat me so bad I'm in misery
    It's breaking my heart, can't you see
    Baby, baby have mercy on me

    Well, I called you up on the telephone
    I could hear you was playin' Haggard and Jones
    I knew right then that there was something wrong
    There's only one reason you play cheatin' songs

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Well, I went to the bank with my little check book
    The cashier, he gave me the strangest look
    He said, "You ain't got no money 'cause you're over drawn
    Your man took it all and he's done gone!"

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I Know Where I'm Going

    Words and Music by Don Schlitz Craig Bickhart and Brent Maher

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you want to come too?
    I got my reservations
    And I got one for you
    The train's leavin' just after dark
    There's always room for a lovin' heart
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    I know my destination
    It's a' waiting for you
    I got no hesitation
    That's where I want to be
    And by the time that the sun comes up
    I'll be drinkin' from a lovin' cup
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you want to come too?

    (Chorus)

    Don't you wanna come?
    Don't you wanna ride?
    Don't you wanna be there by my side?
    Hand in hand
    Holding on to
    The sweet salvation
    That's waiting for me and you

    I know why I'm singin'
    Don't you want to sing too?
    Can't you hear the bells a ringin'?
    Let the spirit move you

    Just close your eyes and let it flow
    Lean your head back, let it go
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?
    I got my reservations
    And I got one for you
    I know why I'm singin'
    Don't you want to sing too?
    Can't you hear the bells a ringin'?
    Let the spirit move you
    Spirit move you, yeah

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    Love Is Alive

    Words and Music by Kent Robbins

    Love ain't a candle
    It doesn't burn for one night
    And need the dark to shine
    Love is alive

    And love ain't just a word
    In every dictionary
    With no where defined
    Love is a man and he's mine

    (Chorus)

    Love is alive
    And at our breakfast table
    Everyday of the week
    Love is alive
    And it grows everyday and night
    Even in our sleep
    Love is alive
    And it's made a happy woman out of me
    Oh, love is alive
    And here by me

    Love ain't just a mood
    A distant far away dream
    That needs the night to rise
    Love is alive
    And love ain't just a song
    Sweet words of music
    To go dancin' by
    Love is a man and he's mine

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Love is alive, here by me

    (Repeat and fade)

    Mama He's Crazy

    Words and Music by Kenny O'Dell

    Mama, I found someone
    Like you said would come along
    He's a sight, so unlike
    Any man I've known
    I was afraid to let him in
    'Cause I'm not the trustin' kind
    But now I'm convinced
    That he's heaven sent
    And must be out of my mind

    (Chorus)

    Mama, he's crazy
    Crazy over me
    And in me life is where he says
    He always wants to be
    I've never been so in love
    He beats all I've ever seen
    Mama, he's crazy
    He's crazy over me

    And, Mama, you've always said,
    "Better look before you leap!"
    Maybe so, but here I go
    Lettin' my heart lead me
    He thinks I hung the moon and stars
    I think he's a livin' dream
    Well, there are men
    But ones like him
    Are few and far between

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Rockin' With The Rhythm

    Words and Music Don Schlitz and Brent Maher

    Sittin' on the porch swing
    Listenin' to the light rain
    Beatin' on the tin roof
    Baby, just me and you
    Rockin' with the rhythm of the rain

    Slide on over
    Baby, hold me closer
    Movin' to and fro
    Just swayin' like a slow freight train
    Rockin' with the rhythm of the rain


    (Chorus)

    So, let the breeze keep blowin'
    (Rockin with the rhythm of the rain that's fallin')
    (Night birds are singin' the crickets are a callin')
    Oh, my heart will never be the same
    So, keep the sweet feelin' flowin'
    (Whisper in my ear, baby, ooh, feels so fine)
    (Nights like this come once in a lifetime)
    Me and my baby, rockin' with the rhythm of the rain

    Oh, baby, hold me tight
    Say you love me
    That's all I wanna hear tonight

    Sittin' on the porch swing
    Listenin' to the light rain
    Beatin' on the tin roof
    Baby, just me and you
    Rockin' with the rhythm of the rain

    Slide on over
    Baby, hold me closer
    Movin' to and fro
    Just swayin' like a slow freight train
    Rockin' with the rhythm of the rain

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Me and my baby, rockin with the rhythm of the rain

    Turn It Loose

    Words and Music by Don Schlitz, Craig Brickhardt and Brent Maher

    Some call it country with a little bit of rhythm and blues
    And when the boys start rockin'
    There's a beat that you just can't lose
    Where it's gonna take us nobody knows
    It sure feels good to the body and soul

    (Chorus)

    I love the slide of a steel guitar
    I love the moan of an old blues harp
    I love the shake of a tamborine
    I love the bass when it's low and mean
    So put on your shoutin' shoes
    And turn it loose
    Turn it loose

    You feel like dancin' and you just can't stay in your seat
    Your knees start knockin' and you can't help stompin' your feet
    Before you even know it you'll be singin' along
    Makes me wanna stay here all night long

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Turn it loose
    Everybody put on your shoutin' shoes and turn it loose
    Grab your shoutin' shoes and turn it loose

    Why Not Me

    Words and Music by Harlan Howard Sonny Throckmorton and Brent Maher

    You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?

    Well, you've finally come down to your old hometown
    Your Kentucky girl's been waiting patiently
    Why not me?

    (Chorus)

    Why not me on a rainy day?
    Why not me to love your cares away?
    Why not me?
    Why not me when the nights get cold?
    Why not me when you're growin' old?
    Why not me?

    You've been searchin' from here to Singapore
    Ain't it time that you notice the girl next door, baby
    Why not me?
    You had to see if the world was round
    It's time that you learned how good settlin' down could be
    Why not me?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?

    (Repeat and Fade)

    Baby, why not me?

    Young Love (Strong Love)

    Words and Music by: Paul Kennerley and Kent Robbins

    She was sitting cross-legged on a hood of a Ford
    Filing down her nails with a emory board
    Talking to her friends about people they knew
    And all of the things that young girls do

    When she said, "You see that guy in the baseball cap?
    I'd like to spend some time with a boy like that."
    Betty said, "I've seen him at the hardware store.
    I think his name is Billy, but I'm not sure."

    And as they talked a little while he passed by
    She smiled at him he just said "Hi."
    He was thinking to himself as he walked away
    Man, I'd like to find a girl like her someday

    (Chorus)

    Young love, strong love, true love
    It's a new love
    Their gonna make it through the hard times
    Walk those lines
    Yeah, these ties will bind
    Young love

    Well, she just couldn't stop herself from thinking 'bout him
    And at a store downtown she saw him again
    She had both hands full, he held open the door
    He said, "My name is Billy. I've seen you before.

    Can I help you with these? Can I give you a ride?
    Can I take you out on a Saturday night?"
    She didn't have to say what she was feeling inside
    He could see the answer shining in her eyes

    (Chorus)

    Well, from that day on you couldn't keep them apart
    They were side by side, heart to heart
    Mama cried as Billy slipped the ring on her hand
    And when the baby was born she was crying again

    Well, he worked real hard and put some money down
    On a little old house at the edge of town
    And that night as he held her he couldn't believe
    That God had made a girl that he'd never ever leave

    (Chorus)

    She was sitting cross-legged on the hood of a Ford
    Filing down her nails with an emory board
