    Don't Be Cruel

    Words and Music by Elvis Presley and Otis Blackwell

    (Chorus)

    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true
    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true
    I don't want no other love
    Baby, it's just you I'm thinking of

    Well, you know I can be found
    Sitting home all alone
    If you can't come around
    Well, at least please telephone
    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true

    Baby, if I made you mad
    For something I might have said
    Please let's forget the past
    'Cause the future looks bright ahead
    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true
    I don't want no other love
    Baby it's just you I'm thinking of

    Well, now don't stop thinking of me
    Don't make me feel this way
    Come on over here and love me
    You know what I want to say
    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true
    Why should we be apart?
    I really, really love you, baby, cross my heart

    Well lets walk up to the preacher
    And let us say I do
    And then you'll know you have me
    And I'll know I'll have you too
    Don't be cruel
    To a heart that's true
    I don't want no other love
    Baby it's just you I'm thinking of

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I'm Falling In Love Tonight

    Words and Music by Craig Bickhardt Don Potter and Brent Maher

    Dance with me, darlin', til' dawn
    I wanna sway in your arms
    'Til the stars fade away
    Fade away

    Moving together as one
    'Til the first gentle rays of the sun
    Light up the day
    Light the day

    (Chorus)

    And while the music still plays
    Please let me hear you keep saying,
    "Over and over I'm falling,
    Falling in love with you!"
    Say there's no way I could lose you
    Hold me tight
    I'm falling in love tonight

    Touch me and tell me it's true
    That I'm not asleep and that you
    Are not just a dream
    Just a dream

    Here with your heart pressed to mine
    We flow like the river that winds
    Its way to the sea
    To the sea

    (Chorus)

    Say there's no way I could lose you
    Hold me tight
    I'm falling in love tonight
    Hold me tight
    I'm falling in love tonight

    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

    Old Pictures

    Words and Music by K.T. Oslin and Jerry Gillespie

    Here's a little girl playin' dress up
    Somewhere under all that lace
    Standin' in her mama's high heeled shoes
    With a lipstick covered face
    And here's a little boy on a pony
    He's a cowboy all the way
    He used to pull my hair and make me mad
    At the Saturday matinee
    Who would've thought that I'd lose my heart
    To the same little boy someday

    (Chorus)

    Lookin' through my old pictures
    Faded photographs
    Some of them bring me close to tears
    Others make me laugh
    Old memories seem to come alive
    And open up the past again
    And let me dream inside

    Here's brother with his first automobile
    Thought he'd washed the paint away
    He took a job that took him West
    He's doing very well
    We don't see much of brother these days
    And this is my favorite of my papa
    He's dressed up in his Sunday suit
    A wide brimmed hat, a watch on a chain
    Well, I'm gonna tell you the truth
    It's a picture of a downright handsome man
    Caught in the prime of his youth

    (Repeat Chorus)

    They open up the past again and let me dream inside

    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)

    Maybe Your Baby's Got The Blues

    Words and Music by Troy Seals and Graham Lyle

    If you hear her cry at night
    Better turn on your light
    Maybe your baby's got the blues
    When she says there's nothing wrong
    She just wants to be alone
    You can bet your baby's got the blues

    (Chorus)

    Women like men to make the first move
    And touch her like he used to
    When there's achin' in her heart
    Only tenderness can find
    Women like men to make them feel alive
    And keep her apron strings untied
    Yes women like men
    To love them through the blues sometime

    When her days all run the same
    And she says she thinks she needs a change
    Maybe your baby's got the blues
    If she says she's just a wife
    And so far from the glamorous life
    You can bet your baby's got the blues

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Yes, women like men to love them through the blues sometimes

    Words and Music by Don Schlitz Craig Bickhart and Brent Maher

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

    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'?

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

    Why Don't You Believe Me

    Words and Music by Don Potter Don Schlitz and Brent Maher

    When I say I want you
    When I say I need you
    Why don't you believe me?
    When I say I miss you
    When I'm not there with you
    Why don't you believe me?
    True love is so hard to find
    Why are you running away from mine?

    When I say just call me
    Anytime you want me
    Why don't you believe me?
    When I say I'll be there
    Now until forever
    Why don't you believe me?
    True love is so hard to find
    Why are you running away from mine?

    So, darlin', don't be afraid
    I'll never leave you alone
    I don't care how long it takes
    I'm willing to wait
    'Til you make my heart your home

    When you say I want you
    When I say I need you
    Why don't you believe me?
    Believe me
    Why don't you believe me?
    Belive me
    Why don't you believe me?

    The Sweetest Gift

    Words and Music by J.B. Coats

    One day a mother
    Come to a prison
    To see an 'erring
    But precious son
    She told the warden
    How much she loved him
    It did not matter
    What he had done

    She did not bring to him
    (Bring to him)
    Parole or pardon
    (Pardon free)
    She brought no silver
    (Brought no gold)
    No pomp nor style
    (Him to see)
    It was a halo
    (Halo bright)
    Sent down from heaven
    (Heaven's light)
    The sweetest gift
    (A mother's smile)

    Her boy had wandered
    Far from the far side
    Though she had pleaded
    With him each night
    But not a word did
    She ever utter
    That told her heartaches
    Her smile was bright

    (Repeat Chorus)

    She left a smile
    You can remember
    She's gone to heaven
    From heartache's free
    Them bars around you
    Will never change her
    He was her baby
    An error will be

    (Repeat Chorus)

    It was a halo bright
    Sent down from heaven's light
    The sweetest gift
    A mother's smile
