    Born To Be Blue

    Words and Music by Mike Reid, Brent Maher and Mack David

    Maybe I'm wrong
    Maybe I'm right
    Maybe I just don't know
    Will I ever fall in love
    And never have to worry
    That I'm fallin' all alone?
    Maybe it's true
    I was just born to be blue
    Maybe it's true
    I was just born to be blue

    They say everybody's got a someone
    A sweet somebody to love
    It might be fate or destiny
    May be written in the stars above
    But I can't help but wonder
    After all that I've been through
    Maybe my baby's nowhere to be found
    And I was just born to be blue

    Was I born to be unhappy?
    Just to live on heartache street
    Was I born to go to bed each night
    And cry myself to sleep?
    Can somebody out there help me?
    Give me some kind of clue
    Tell me I'm wrong, tell me I'm right
    But, don't tell me I was born to be blue

    They say nobody dies from a heartache
    You can't drown in your own tears
    But who wants to live in this world alone
    Where minutes turn into years?
    So I'd rather go down believin'
    Suffer a heartache or two
    Tell me I'm wrong, tell me I'm right
    But, don't tell me I was born to be blue

    Was I born to be blue?
    Born just to cry?
    Born to be alone 'til the day I die?

    Somebody tell me

    Was I born to be loved?
    Born to be kissed?
    Born to find the one to show me what I missed?

    Was I born to be blue?
    Born just to cry?
    Born to be alone 'til the day I die?

    Tell me, Mama

    Was I born to be loved?
    Born to be kissed?
    Born to find the one to show me what I missed?

    Calling In The Wind

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

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    You said I could call on you
    If I was ever lonely
    You swore you'd always be my friend
    And now my heart is tired
    And, oh, my soul is hungry
    I need to talk to you again

    (Chorus)

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    I can hear love callin' in the wind
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Open up my heart and let it in
    Love's callin' in the wind

    You said I may not see you
    Standing there beside me
    But you would be there just the same
    Your hand upon my shoulder
    Always there to guide me
    All I had to do was call your name

    (Repeat Chorus Twice)

    I can hear love callin' in the wind
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Open up your heart and let it in
    Love's callin' in the wind

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    In My Dreams

    Words and Music by Austin Cunningham

    In my dreams
    You belong to me
    She doesn't mean a thing
    She never wore your ring

    In my dreams
    My greatest wish comes true
    My arms are holding you
    In my dreams

    (Chorus)

    I hear your laughter
    And I taste your lips
    I feel you tremble
    At my fingertips
    Each night you're mine
    But each morning finds you gone

    In my dreams
    My soul is wide awake
    Craving the love we make
    In my dreams

    (Repeat Chorus)

    In my dreams
    I'll hide this love I steal
    'Til you feel what my heart feels
    In my dreams

    In my dreams
    In my dreams
    In my dreams

    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

    Love Can Build A Bridge

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd, John Jarvis and Paul Overstreet

    I'd gladly walk across the desert
    With no shoes upon my feet
    To share with you the last bite
    Of bread I had to eat
    I would swim out to save you
    In your sea of broken dreams
    When all your hopes are sinkin'
    Let me show you what love means

    (Chorus)

    Love can build a bridge
    Between your heart and mine
    Love can build a bridge
    Don't you think it's time?
    Don't you think it's time?

    I would whisper love so loudly
    Every heart could understand
    That love and only love
    Can join the tribes of man
    I would give my heart's desire
    So that you might see
    The first step is to realize
    That it all begins with you and me

    (Repeat Chorus)

    When we stand together
    It's our finest hour
    We can do anything, anything
    Keep believin' in the power

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Love and only love
    Love and only love

    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)

    One Hundred And Two

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerley, Don Potter and Wynonna Judd

    There's one hundred and one
    Little reasons why
    I should leave you here
    Say goodbye
    But I just can't seem
    To say we're through
    And the reasons why
    Are one hundred and two

    One hundred and one
    Little tears fall
    And every drop
    Makes me feel so small
    But as hard as I try
    I can't leave you
    And the reasons why, baby,
    Are one hundred and two

    I'm countin' up
    The times I've cried
    The times you'd leave
    The times you lied
    And everyday
    I'm keeping score
    When it all adds up
    I need you more

    One hundred and one
    Lonely nights
    You leave me here
    Now, honey, that ain't right
    But, still I forgive
    Everything you do
    And the reasons why
    Are one hundred and two

    Yeah, the reasons why baby
    Are one hundred and two

    There's one hundred and one
    Little reasons why
    But, one hundred and two
    Keeps me by your side

    John Deere Tractor

    Words and Music by Lawrence Hammond

    Dear Mama, well, here's a letter from your girl
    Well, I think my city days are done, Mom
    And it ain't been three weeks since I came

    And Mama, do remember what you said
    Say your prayers before you go to bed, child
    And remember city boys ain't the same

    (Chorus)

    I'm like a John Deere Tractor
    In a half acre field
    Tryin' to plow a furrow
    Where the soil is made of steel
    How I wish I was home, Mom
    Where the blue grass is growin'
    And the sweet country boys don't complain

    And, Mama, so much perfume I thought I'd drown
    And the Lord didn't seem to be nowhere around
    Hey, I felt just like a flower from the vine

    (Repeat Chorus)

    How I'd like to be home, Mom
    Where the blue grass is growin'
    And the fire light shimmers and it shines

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Talk About Love

    Words and Music by Jack Sundrud and Carl Struck

    (Chorus)
    Love, talk about love
    Why do you always
    Wanna talk about love?
    Love, talk about love
    Why do you always
    Wanna talk about it?

    I say that love
    Is something you feel
    You know in your heart
    If it's real
    But you've got to analyze
    Organize, synchronize, formalize
    And compromise

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I say love
    It's like when you sing
    You move to the music
    When the words don't mean a thing
    But, know you've got to clarify
    Define it and refine it
    Align and realign it

    (Repeat Chorus)

    You don't have to understand
    Every little thing between
    A woman and a man
    True love
    Comes from deep inside
    Try to use your logic
    And you'll only lose your mind

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Are The Roses Not Blooming

    Words and Music by Thom Schuyler

    Are the roses not blooming this morning?
    Has the sun lost its beautiful ray?
    Have the children no reason for laughing?
    Or my darling are you walking away?

    Has the sky lost its brilliant blue color?
    Are the robins not singing today?
    Has that river no reason for running?
    Or, my darling, are you walking away?

    Has my heart found a reason for breaking in two?
    Have my eyes found a reason to cry?
    Have my ears heard the voice of a stranger?
    Or, my darling, are you saying goodbye?

    Has the earth lost its power for turning?
    Has the winter decided to stay?
    Are the roses not blooming this morning?
    Or, my darling, are you walking away?

    Are the roses not blooming this morning?
    Or, my darling, are you walking away?
    Or, my darling, are you walking away?
