    One Woman Man

    Words and Music by: Paul Kennerley

    (Chorus)

    I'm a one man woman
    I want a one woman man
    I've got two arms to hold him
    To love him all I can
    Now it's a free world we live in
    It's this I understand
    But I'm a one man woman
    I want a one woman man

    I don't need nobody
    Handing me those lines
    Saying I can keep my freedom
    In these modern times
    I want a ring on my finger
    For all the world to see
    And when I get home from working
    He'll be waiting here for me

    (Chorus)

    I don't want nobody
    Pulling me around
    Loving me then leaving
    For someone else downtown
    If he ain't true and steady
    Then he ain't in my plans
    Cause I'm a one man woman
    I want a one woman man

    (Chorus)

    Cause I'm a one man woman
    I want a one woman man

    Young 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

    Not My Baby

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

    There are guys who will lie
    Then they'll hang you out to dry
    But not my baby
    Promise you everything
    Then they never buy the ring
    But not my baby
    Say they're out with their pals
    When they're seein' other gals
    But not my baby

    And they think it's a crime
    When they have to spend a dime
    But not my baby
    Bring you gifts now and then
    Always from the five and ten
    But not my baby
    And I've heard stories of
    Guys afraid to fall in love
    But not my baby

    (Chorus)

    I don't have to dream
    My dream baby
    He's the sweetest dream
    That's already come true
    And every time we touch, just touch
    I can feel how very much
    How much he loves me
    Not my baby
    No, not my baby

    (Repeat Chorus)

    There are guys that I've seen
    Who are wrong or being mean
    But not my baby
    Getting mad, getting cross
    If you don't let them be boss
    But not my baby

    Yes, I've sure got a lot
    And the best thing that I've got
    I've got my baby
    And I know he will stay
    He will never go away
    No, not my baby
    No, not my baby
    No, not my baby
    No, not my baby

    Let Me Tell You About Love

    Words and Music by C. Perkins, P. Kennerley and B. Maher

    Well, ever since the day that time began
    There's been this thing 'tween a woman and a man
    Well, I don't know but I do believe
    It started in the garden with Adam and Eve

    Sampson and Delilah had their fling
    'Til she cut his hair and clipped his wing
    It don't matter how the story's told
    Love stays young, it can't grow old

    (Chorus)

    Let me tell you about love
    About the moon and stars above
    It's what we've all been dreamin' of
    Let me tell you about love

    Well, Bonaparte and Josephine
    I believe they had a pretty good scene
    Until she said, "Bony boy, we're through!"
    That's when he met his Waterloo

    Julie baby and Romeo
    Fell in love and stole the show
    I know they are history
    But there ain't been nothin' like you and me

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Now Sheba she was a beauty queen
    The purtiest thing that you ever have seen
    Soloman he was a mighty wise
    'Til Sheba she done caught his eye

    The world would be in a dreadful fix
    If it wasn't for the love between the cats and chicks
    This world wouldn't amount to much
    Without a hug and a kiss and a tender touch

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Let me tell you about love
    Let me tell you about love

    Sleepless Nights

    Words and Music by B. Bryant and F. Bryant

    Through these sleepless nights
    I cry for you
    And wonder who
    Is kissing you
    Oh, these sleepless nights
    Will break my heart in two

    Somehow through the days
    I don't give in
    I hide the tears
    That wait within
    Oh, but, then through sleepless nights
    I cry again

    Why did you go?
    Why did you go?
    Don't you know?
    Don't you know
    I need you?

    I keep hoping you'll
    Come back to me
    Oh, let it be
    Please let it be
    Oh, my love, please end
    These sleepless nights for me

    My love, please end these sleepless nights for me

    Water Of Love

    Words and Music by M. Knopfler

    High and dry in the long hot day
    Lost and lonely in every way
    Got the flats all around me, sky up above
    Yes, I need a little water of love

    I've been too long lonely and my heart feels pain
    Cryin' out for some soothing rain
    I believe I've taken enough
    Yes, I need a little water of love

    (Chorus)

    Water of love, deep in the ground
    But there ain't no water here to be found
    Someday, baby, when the river runs free
    It'll carry that water of love to me

    Once I had a man I could call my own
    Once I had a man, now my man is gone
    Once there was a river, now there's a stone
    You know it's evil when you're living alone

    (Repeat Chorus)

    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

    Do I Dare

    Words and Music by D.Schlitz, C. Bickhardt and Brent Maher

    Do I dare show him lovin'?
    Do I go for double or nothin'?
    Do I act like I don't care?
    Or, do I dare?

    Do I do what my heart's sayin'?
    Do I hide my love awaitin'?
    Make believe that he's not there?
    Or, do I dare?

    This girl's got a problem
    She don't know what to do
    If there's some way of tellin'
    When a man is true

    Will he love me faithfully?
    Will he leave me blue?
    Should I run?
    Or, could this be the one?

    Do I dare jump in the middle?
    Sure, I care more than a little
    If he don't fall, I'll loose it all
    Tell me, do I dare?

    Do I dare?
    Do I dare?

    Do I tell him that I've held him
    In my dreams so tight?
    Well, could I risk one little kiss?
    Or, should I take a chance tonight?

    Do I do what my heart's sayin'?
    Do I hide my love awaitin'?
    Make believe that he's not there?
    Or, do I dare?

    Lord, do I dare?
    Lord, do I dare?

    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)

    There 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
    There 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
