    This Country's Rockin

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd, Keith Sykes and Robert Johnson

    It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor
    If you're old or young
    Everybody, every now and then
    Has got to have some fun
    So turn up the music
    Turn up the juice
    Put me in the spotlight
    And turn me loose
    You better hold on tight
    This country's gonna rock tonight

    (Chorus)

    This country's rockin'
    To the beat of a brand new drum
    Back in Kentucky where I come from
    They love to hear that old guitar strum
    This country's rockin'
    Jump back and let the bad boys play
    Everywhere across the USA
    This country's rockin' all the way

    You might ride a horse, drive a Porsche
    Or cruise in limousines
    Eat caviar with champagne
    Or cornbread with your pinto beans
    But there's one thing
    In which we all agree
    We love our country music
    Like the Queen loves tea
    What a lovely sight
    We're gonna rock tonight

    (Repeat Chorus)

    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

    River Of Time

    Words by: Naomi Judd
    Music by: John Jarvis

    I'm holding back a flood of tears
    Just thinking 'bout those happy years
    Like all the good times that are no more
    My love is gone...gone...gone forever more

    Silence so deep only my soul can hear
    Says now the past is what I fear
    The future isn't what it used to be
    Only today is all that's promised me

    Flow on, river of time
    Wash away the pain and heal my mind
    Flow on, river of time
    Carry me away
    And leave it all far behind
    Flow on river of time

    We're all driven by the winds of change
    Seems like nothing ever stays the same
    It's fate that guides me around the bend
    Life's forever beginning, beginning again

    Flow on, river of time
    Wash away the pain and heal my mind
    Flow on, river of time
    Carry me away
    And leave it all far behind
    Flow on river of time

    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Flow on
    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Flow on
    Flow on river of time

    Cadillac Red

    Words and Music by N. Judd, J Jarvis and C. Brickhardt

    Well, she's washed and polished
    And full of high octane
    Ridin' with the top down
    Crusin' in the fast land
    Her red hairs blowin' bright as a flame
    Cadillac red's her name

    (Chorus)

    Cadillac red
    Singin' as she passes by
    Cadillac red
    See that hillbilly fly
    Catch her if you can
    She can out run any man
    Cadillac red

    Her radio's loud and she's rollin' to the back beat
    Her best girlfriends are all piled in the backseat
    She's puttin her lipstick on
    Cause' there's a Mustang blowin' his horn

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Hey, hey, Cadillac red
    Hey, hey, Cadillac red
    Hey, hey, Cadillac red
    Hey, hey, Cadillac red

    Mr. Pain

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd and Kent Robbins

    Met my first love down in Texas
    In a club in San Anton'
    Both of us were lonely
    Had no one to call our own
    So we danced and laughed 'til closin' time
    And had no place to go
    So with the top pulled down we drove all night
    Ran off to Mexico

    But my blond-haired, blue-eyed cowboy
    Turned out to be bad news
    Disappeared one morning
    Left his old boots and the blues
    Now there's been so many others
    But none of them were true
    The only one I could count on to keep me
    Company is you

    Mr. Pain-- oh, it's you again
    Never really wanted us to be such friends
    You always seem to show up
    When I'm all alone
    That's when you move right in
    And make yourself at home
    Mr. Pain, oh, Mr. Pain

    Well, you'd think by now that I'd have learned
    To see through your disguise
    A heartache really shouldn't be
    So hard to recognize
    But you wear so many faces
    Every line is new
    And somehow I just always end up
    Wakin' up with you

    Mr. Pain-- oh, it's you again
    Never really wanted us to be such friends
    Never fail to find me when I'm all alone
    That's when you move right in
    And make yourself at home
    Mr. Pain, oh, Mr.Pain

    Rompin' Stompin' Blues

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd and Don Schlitz

    His letter came this morning
    C.O.D.
    Says he's found somebody
    Who reminds him of me
    He says he needs some space
    That might be the case
    Wasn't even man enough
    To tell me to my face
    I got the rompin', stompin'
    Bad news blues

    He stole my money
    He stole my time
    When he stole my heart
    Honey, he really crossed that line
    A major felony
    Send out an A.P.B.
    Go tell that thief of hearts
    To bring it on back to me
    I got the rompin', stompin'
    Bad news blues

    Well, come tonight
    I'm steppin' out
    Gonna sing and dance
    Gonna shake and shout
    Forget about ol' what's his name
    You know two can play this game
    Whatever it takes to lose
    These rompin', stompin'
    Bad news blues

    Well, men are full of trouble
    Girl, that ain't nothin' new
    We ain't found nothin' better
    And until the day we do
    Sister friend, be wise
    Just realize
    Stay away from the ones
    Who'll do you wrong and tell you lies
    They'll give you the rompin', stompin'
    Bad news blues

    That's right
    They'll give you the rompin', stompin'
    Bad news blues

    Lazy Country Evening

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd

    Lazy country evening
    Sittin' by you
    The baby's
    In his cradle
    And the day's
    Almost through

    Red sunset
    Over pine trees
    I'm feelin'
    High as the mountain
    Free
    As the breeze

    Yodeleeo, Yodeleeo
    Yodeleeo, Yodeleeo

    Whippoorwill calls
    Darkness falls
    The perfect
    Way to say
    Time to close
    Another perfect day

    Guardian Angels

    Words and Music by: Naomi Judd, John Jarvis and Don Schlitz

    A hundred year old photograph
    Stares out from a frame
    And if you look real close you'll see
    Our eyes are just the same
    I never met them face to face
    But I still know them well
    From the stories
    My dear grandma would tell

    Elijah was a farmer
    He knew how to make things grow
    Fannie vowed she'd follow him
    Wherever he would go
    As things turned out they never left
    Their small Kentucky farm
    But he kept her fed
    She kept him warm

    (Chorus)

    They're my guardian angels
    And I know they can see
    Ev'ry step I take
    They are watching over me
    I might not know where I'm goin'
    But I'm sure where I come from
    They're my guardian angels
    And I'm their special one

    Sometimes when I'm tired
    I feel Elijah take my arm
    He says, "Keep a-goin', hard work
    Never did a body harm."
    And when I'm really troubled
    And I don't know what to do
    Fannie whispers, "Just do your best, We're awful proud of you!"

    (Chorus)

    A hundred year old photograph
    Stares out from a frame
    And if you look real close you'll see
    Our eyes are just the same

    When King Jesus Calls His Children Home

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd

    When they plant me like a seed in the ground
    In silent sleep beneath some mossy mound
    I'll be like a rose just waitin' for the spring
    'Cause I'm a gonna rise up, rise up, shout and sing

    'Cause there ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
    When I hear, I hear that trumpet sound
    I know I've been a dyin' since the day that I was born
    But now I'm living for that resurrection morn'

    (Chorus)

    When King Jesus calls his children home
    When King Jesus calls his children home
    I'm a gonna wear my snow white gown
    I'm gonna put on a starry crown
    When King Jesus calls his children home

    Like a bird in a cage that's been set free
    My soul will sing throughout eternity
    I'll shed this mortal shell, oh, let ol' Satan stay in hell
    I'll see glory that no human tongue can tell

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Ye know not the hour
    Ye know not the day
    So, be humble, my children
    Hide and watch and pray

    (Repeat Chorus)
    (Repeat Chorus)
