    Had A Dream (For The Heart)

    Words and Music by Dennis Linde

    Had a dream about you, baby
    Had a dream about me and you
    Had a dream and I woke up cryin'
    Well, I can try but I just can't stop
    And the time is draggin' by, tick-tock
    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you

    Well, I'm high and dry and lonely
    I'm as lonesome as can be
    And I stare out of my window
    Well, I can play but I just can't win
    And the weather's lookin' mighty grim
    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you

    (Chorus)

    Oh my heart, it can't love no one but you
    My heart can't love no one but you
    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you
    Oh my heart can't love no one but you
    My heart can't love no one but you
    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you

    Had a dream about you, baby
    Had a dream about me and you
    Had a dream and I woke up cryin'
    Well, I can try but I just can't stop
    And the time is draggin' by, tick-tock
    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you

    Oh my heart, it just can't love no one but you

    Mama He's Crazy

    Words and Music by Kenny O'Dell

    Mama, I found someone
    Like you said would come along
    He's a sight, so unlike
    Any man I've known
    I was afraid to let him in
    'Cause I'm not the trustin' kind
    But now I'm convinced
    That he's heaven sent
    And must be out of my mind

    (Chorus)

    Mama, he's crazy
    Crazy over me
    And in me life is where he says
    He always wants to be
    I've never been so in love
    He beats all I've ever seen
    Mama, he's crazy
    He's crazy over me

    And, Mama, you've always said,
    "Better look before you leap!"
    Maybe so, but here I go
    Lettin' my heart lead me
    He thinks I hung the moon and stars
    I think he's a livin' dream
    Well, there are men
    But ones like him
    Are few and far between

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Drops Of Water

    Words and Music by Bill LaBounty and Roy Freeland

    There's a bird in my tree
    Singin' sad autumn melodies
    There's a old summer breeze
    And it's blowin' away

    There's a cloud in my sky
    There's a boy who's been on my mind
    There's a tear in my eye
    And I think it might rain

    (Chorus)

    Drops of water, drops of water
    Fallin' down around fate
    Oh, it's nothin' but the rain in my life
    Drops of water, drops of water
    Fallin' down around my fate
    Oh, it's nothin' but the rain in my life

    There's a moon up above
    Shinin' down on the one I love
    There's a pain in my heart
    He's gone away

    If a star falls tonight
    Let it fall and with all my might
    I close my eyes, make a wish
    That he'll come back someday

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Oh, it's nothin' but the rain in my life

    Drops of water, drops of water

    (Repeat & Fade)

    Why Not Me

    Words and Music by Harlan Howard Sonny Throckmorton and Brent Maher

    You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?
    Why not me?
    Well, you've finally come down to your old hometown
    Your Kentucky girl's been waiting patiently
    Why not me?

    (Chorus)

    Why not me on a rainy day?
    Why not me to love your cares away?
    Why not me?
    Why not me when the nights get cold?
    Why not me when you're growin' old?
    Why not me?

    You've been searchin' from here to Singapore
    Ain't it time that you notice the girl next door, baby
    Why not me?
    You had to see if the world was round
    It's time that you learned how good settlin' down could be
    Why not me?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?

    (Repeat and Fade)

    Baby, why not me?

    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

    Love Is Alive

    Words and Music by Kent Robbins

    Love ain't a candle
    It doesn't burn for one night
    And need the dark to shine
    Love is alive

    And love ain't just a word
    In every dictionary
    With no where defined
    Love is a man and he's mine

    (Chorus)

    Love is alive
    And at our breakfast table
    Everyday of the week
    Love is alive
    And it grows everyday and night
    Even in our sleep
    Love is alive
    And it's made a happy woman out of me
    Oh, love is alive
    And here by me

    Love ain't just a mood
    A distant far away dream
    That needs the night to rise
    Love is alive
    And love ain't just a song
    Sweet words of music
    To go dancin' by
    Love is a man and he's mine

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Love is alive, here by me

    (Repeat and fade)

    Girls Night Out

    Words and Music by Brent Maher and Jeffery Hawthorne Bullock

    Friday finally came around
    This girl's ready to paint the town
    Tonight ain't nothin' gonna slow me down

    I did my time workin' all week
    Tonight's all mine, tomorrow I'll sleep
    I wanna hear a band with a country sound

    Well, I've been couped up all week long
    I've been workin' my fingers to the bone

    (Chorus)

    Well, it's a girl's night out
    Honey, there ain't no doubt
    I'm gonna dance every dance 'til the boys go home
    Well, it's my night to rock
    No watchin' that ol' clock
    Oh, ain't no doubt, Lordy it's a girl's night out

    Two step or the Cotton Eye Joe
    They can play 'em fast or they can play 'em slow
    I can do 'em all just show me the floor
    You can give me a little rock 'n roll
    Or even a waltz with the lights down low
    I'll still be dancin' when they close the door

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Friday finally came around

    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

    Have Mercy

    Words and Music by Paul Kennerly

    Well, 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 your 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)

    Well, I 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)

    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

    Tears For You

    Words and Music by Mickey Jupp

    Heartaches
    You know my heart aches
    Everytime I think of you
    Lonesome
    I'm on my own some
    Yes, I could loan some
    Tears for you

    Daybreak
    Another day break
    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 alright
    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
    Tears for you

    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


    (Chorus)

    So, let the breeze keep blowin'
    (Rockin with the rhythm of the rain that's fallin')
    (Night birds are singin' the crickets are a callin')
    Oh, my heart will never be the same
    So, keep the sweet feelin' flowin'
    (Whisper in my ear, baby, ooh, 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

    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

    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 whisper sweet, "I love yous!" everyday
    If I were you I'd never ever let me get away

    If I were you I'd look me over
    There's 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

    Don't Be Cruel

    Words and Music by Elvis Presley and Otis Blackwell

    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

    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

    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

    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
