    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?
    Why not me?
    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?

    Give A Little Love

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerley

    You can buy a diamond ring
    And slip it on my hand
    Put me on a big ol' plane
    And fly me to a foreign land
    Show me rows of fancy clothes
    Saying, "Honey you can take your pick!"
    Well, that would be mighty kind
    But it ain't gonna do the trick

    (Chorus)

    Give a little love
    A squeeze and a little kiss
    Give a little hug
    Mmm, I want some more of this
    Take a little time
    Yeah, make a little fuss
    That's what a woman wants
    So give a little love


    Get this, you can be some big hunk
    Handsome, dark and tall
    Talk to me in foreign tongues
    Or with a southern drawl
    Or be a man from old Siam
    Wear a pointed hat
    I don't care how you look
    'Cause that ain't where it's at

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Well, there are men who'll turn your head
    And knock you off of your feet
    Sweet talk and big blue eyes
    Make a poor heart skip a beat
    Drive you wild with a smile
    And then they'll treat you cruel
    Well, I ain't gonna fall for that
    'Cause Mama didn't raise no fool

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Cow Cow Boogie

    Words and Music by Don Raye Gene DePaul and Benny Carter

    Out on the plains down near Santa Fe
    I met a cowboy ridin' the range one day
    And as he jogged along I heard him singin'
    The most peculiar cowboy song
    It was a ditty, he learned in the city
    Comma ti yi yi yeah
    Comma ti yippity yi yeah

    Now get along, get hip little doggies
    Get along, better be on your way
    Get along, get hip little doggies
    He trucked 'em on down that old fairway
    Singin' his Cow Cow Boogie in the strangest way
    Comma ti yi yi yeah
    Comma ti yippity yi yeah

    (Chorus)

    Now singin' his cowboy songs
    He's just too much
    He's got a knocked out western accent with a dixie touch
    He was raised on local ways
    He's what you call a swingin' half breed
    Singin' his Cow Cow Booogie in the strangest way
    Comma ti yi yi yeah
    Comma ti yippity yi yeah

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Working In A Coal Mine

    Words and Music by Allen Toussaint

    Workin' in the coal mine
    Goin' on down, down
    Workin' in a coal mine
    Oops, about to slip down
    Workin' in a coal mine
    Goin' on down, down
    Workin' in a coal mine
    Oops, about to slip down

    Five o'clock in the mornin'
    I'm already up and gone
    Lord, I'm so tired
    How long can this go on?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    'Cause I make a little money
    Haulin' coal by the ton
    When Saturday rolls around
    I'm too tired for havin' fun

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Lord I'm so tired
    How long can this go on?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Five o'clock in the mornin'

    How long can this go on?

    Rockin' With The Rhythm Of The Rain

    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

    So let the breeze keep blowin'
    (Rockin with the rhythm of the rain)
    (Night birds a singin' the crickets a callin')
    Oh, my heart will never be the same
    Keep the sweet feelin' flowin'
    (Whisper in my ear baby)
    (Oh, 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

    River Roll On

    Words and Music by Wayland Holyfield and Brent Maher

    River roll on
    Wish I could be like you
    No looking back
    And no heart that breaks in two
    You'll never now
    What a goodbye can do
    Oh, I wish I were you
    River roll on

    River roll on
    Free as the winds that blow
    Feelin' no pain
    Just rollin' with the flow
    No tears to cry
    No songs to make you blue
    Oh, I wish I were you
    River roll on

    Oh, I never thought that
    I could ever feel so all alone
    But I'm learnin'
    The world keeps on turnin'
    Even though he's gone

    River roll on
    Keep rollin' endlessly
    Down to the arms
    Of the ever waiting sea
    I wish that I
    Had someone waitin' too
    Oh, I wish I were you
    River roll on

    I wish that I had someone waitin' too
    Oh, I wish I were you
    River roll on
    Oh, I wish I were you
    River roll on
    River roll on
    River roll on
    River roll on

    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)

    My Baby's Gone

    Words and Music by Dennis Linde

    I woke up this morning and the sun refused to shine
    I looked everywhere to try to find that man of mine
    I just found an ice cold pillow layin' by my side
    Well, the moon is down but it still ain't dawn
    The world is dark and my baby's gone

    I looked out the window and I could not help but cry
    He left me all alone and never said goodbye
    He even took that golden sunlight from the sky
    Well, the moon is down but it still ain't dawn
    The world is dark and my baby's gone

    Sit here and wonder why he left me
    I just try to think what I've done wrong
    Stay in the darkness of this lonely room
    Well, the moon is down but it still ain't dawn
    The world is dark and my baby's gone

    Woke up this morning and the sun refused to shine
    I looked everywhere to try to find that man of mine
    I just found an ice cold pillow layin' by my side
    Well the moon is down but it still ain't dawn
    The world is dark and my baby's gone

    Well the moon is down but it still ain't dawn
    The world is dark and my baby's gone

    Ain't no moonlight
    Ain't no starlight
    Ain't no sunlight
    My baby's gone

    (Repeat and fade)
