    Have Mercy

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerly

    I was standing in line at the city bus stop
    Soaked to the skin from ev'ry rain drop
    I see you driving by just like a phantom jet
    With your arm around some little brunette
    You say you won't be home because you're working late
    Honey, I'm no fool, you've been out on a date
    The lipstick on your collar gives the game away
    It's strawberry red and mine's pink rose

    (Chorus)

    Have mercy on me
    You treat me so bad I'm in misery
    It's breaking my heart, can't you see
    Baby, baby have mercy on me

    Well I called you up on the telephone
    I could hear you was playin' Haggard and Jones
    I knew right then that there was something wrong
    There's only one reason you play cheatin' songs

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Went to the bank with my little check book
    The cashier he gave me the strangest look
    He said you ain't got no money 'cause you're over drawn
    Your man took it all and he's done gone

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Working In The 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'
    I'm already up and gone
    Lord, I'm so tired
    How long can this go on

    (Repeat Chorus)

    If I Were You

    Words and Music by Harlan Howard, Sonny Throckmorton and Brent Maher

    If I were you
    I'd think it over
    Take your time
    Before you leave
    Everyone wants the perfect lover
    If I were you
    I'd fall in love with me

    If I were you
    I'd just remember
    Don't miss the forest for the trees
    The mighty flame
    Was once an ember
    If I were you I'd fall in love with me

    If I were you
    I'd wisper sweet I love you's everyday
    If I were you, I'd never ever let me get away

    If I were you
    I'd look me over
    Theres much more than what you see
    I can prove You'll need no other
    If I were you I'd fall in love with me

    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

    Tears For You

    Words and Music by Mickey Jupp You know my heart aches

    Everytime I think of you
    Lonesome, I'm on my own some
    Yes, I could lone some
    Tears for you
    Daybreak
    Another daybreak
    And I wonder
    How I got through
    You know sleepin'
    I'm only sleepin'
    In between my weepin'
    Tears for you

    You know that one night
    One night can be such a long night
    At midnight
    I know all the stars by name
    But It's allright
    I'll get myself together
    Nothin' lasts forever
    I'll just play another game

    Because mistakes
    Everyone makes mistakes
    Can one kiss make
    Dreams come true
    Nice try, I'll just say goodbye
    Let someone else cry

    Tears for you
    Tears for you
    Tears for you
    Tears for you

    Cry Myself To Sleep

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerley

    I've tried so hard
    You know I can't do more
    It's the turn of the card
    It's the close of the door
    The lies you told
    You know they hurt so deep
    So I'll go home
    And cry myself to sleep

    And day after day
    You've been treating me bad
    Friends come up and say,
    "Why do you take all that?"
    'Cause it's making me moan
    And it's making me weep
    So I'll go home
    And cry myself to sleep

    You play at love
    Like a child plays games
    One day I'm in
    Then I'm out again
    You change the rules
    And I just can't win
    You've broken me now
    So I give in, yeah, yeah

    I've been through worse
    But I don't know what
    Oh, I gave to you
    Everything that I got
    So take this heart
    Or what's left to keep
    And I'll go home
    And cry myself to sleep
    So I'll go home and cry myself to sleep
    Cry myself to sleep

    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
    We just roll'em 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 a turnin'
    Even though he's gone

    River roll on
    Keep rollin' endlesslyv 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

    I Wish She Wouldn't Treat You That Way

    Words and Music by Kevin Welch and Walker Igleheart

    The way she treats you
    Is a dog gone crime
    I just get blue about it all the time
    Drives me crazy
    how she walks that line
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way baby
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way

    I ain't sayin' that she's bad to you
    She does every little thing a lover should do
    Any fool could see that her love is true
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way baby
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way
    She ain't the only one
    Who loves you dear
    She ain't the only one
    Who needs you near
    How am I ever goin' to have my day
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way

    See you walkin' with her
    Hand in hand
    By the look on your face
    You're a happy man
    She's ruinin all of my best layed plans
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way baby
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way

    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way baby
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way
    She ain't the only one
    Who loves you dear
    She ain't the only one
    Who needs you near
    How am I ever goin' to have my day
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way

    wish she wouldn't treat you that way baby
    I wish she wouldn't treat you that way

    Dreamchaser

    Words and Music by Jeff H. Bullock and Brent Maher

    I'm gonna pack my bags and drive all night
    I'll be in the mountains by morning light
    Drive the road I traveled years ago
    As a young girl leaving home

    With dreams as big as the trees were tall
    I knew I'd have nothing or I'd have it all
    And you all know what happens when the bright lights call
    You're either gonna make or you're gonna fall
    Make it or you're gonna fall

    (Chorus)

    I'm a dream chaser, a star gazer that's what I am
    But I've always known I'd come back home when I found my rainbows end
    Rainmakers and heartbreakers could never change my plans
    Dream chaser, that's what I am

    I'm goin' home where the stars shine bright in a mountain sky
    That path above I've followed all of my life
    It's guiding me back to where my dreams began
    Then I'll be gone again
    I'll be gone again

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Dream chaser, that's what I am
