Missin Kissin You

Baby kiss me one more time 
And hold your body close to mine 
Oh when you say we're through 
I'm so lonely without you

It's like a day without a dawn 
Everything is going wrong 
It's like a winter without a spring 
Or if the birds forgot to sing


Oh I'm feeling so blue 
Cause I'm missin kissin you 
There's a flame deep inside 
My love for you can't be denied 
Please return my love to me 
If just tonight so let it be 
And say again I love you too 
I've been missin kissin you

It's like a day without a dawn 
Everthing seems so wrong 
I'ts like a winter without a spring 
Or if the birds forgot to sing

So baby kiss me one more time 
And hold your body close to mine 
And say those words you used to say 
And come tomorrow what may

Chorus:

 

Only Boys Back Then

Reminiscing about my childhood 

grew up past city limits back in the woods 
No computers no video games 
Just our imaginations and childhood dreams 
We were Evel Knievel in the yard out back 
Building jumps out of plywood scraps 
Oh I remember back then 
When we were only boys back then, but we sure felt lke men 
Only boys back then, but we sure felt like men

We were Davy Crocket and ole Jim Bowie defending the Alamo in that big oak tree 
And We were in the big leagues in out back yard 
Uncle Bubba would watch I still smell his cigar 
Then we'd go inside to watch our heros on TV 
Bubba gave us our first beer where mom wouldn't see 
Oh I remember back then 
When we were only boys back then, but we sure felt like men 
Only boys back then, but we sure felt like men

Now i'm all grown up now and I watch the kids play 
Wonderin' who are the heros they look up to today 
Is it sports stars or Hollywood 
Whatever it is I hope it's something good

Only boys back then but we sure felt like men 
Only boys back then, but we sure felt like men

Shoulda Known Better

Sweat Marlene

Shoulda known better, Shoulda known better

Took a drive the other day in the early morning rain
Down to see a friend and his new wife
All along thinking that you were the one
The one I want to be with all my life

But I shoulda known better, than to fall in love with you
Shoulda known better, but there was nothing I could do
Shoulda known better, but it just felt so right

Took a walk in the trees and there we had a talk
About how our lives would one day be
You and me and a baby in a castle built for three
Oh what a sweet sweet fantasy

But I shoulda of known better...

I tried to be a father, I tried to do things right
I wanted you to want me when I came home at night
I wasn't sure you loved me even when you took my ring
Now I know it didn't mean anything

But I shoulda of known better...

I'll Take Care of Her

You Can Have Her

You can have her I don't want her anymore
She's nothing but a pain to me
And once you've been her lover you'll be swearin' to me brother
That you wished you'd listened to me

Little girl is pretty as the flowers in the spring But this angel's got a devil below
She always wants to doubt me changes everything about me And tells me that she loves me so 
Now I was reared on Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer she was raised on French Merlot
I'm a lover I'm a fighter I'm a wild bull rider But she takes me to the garden show

You can have her I don't want her anymore
She's nothing but a pain to me
And once you've been her lover you'll be swearin' to me brother
That you wished you'd listened to me 
Daddy's little girl in a prim a proper world Got a side nobody knows
She cusses up a storm and then come Sunday morn' she's as pure as the driven snow
She shakes and she wiggles and she bounces and she giggles and bats them big blue eyes
Oh I don't mind it would be just fine except she does it for the other guys 

You can have her I don't want her anymore
She's nothing but a pain to me
And once you've been her lover you'll be swearin' to me brother
That you wished you'd listened to me 
You can have her I don't want her anymore
She's nothing but a pain to me
And once you've been her lover you'll be swearin' to me brother
That you wished you'd listened to me
YOU CAN HAVE HER
I know a girl and her name is sweat Marlene
She’s got a birthday she just turned sweat sixteen
She goes out dancing every Saturday night
I see her out there makes me feel alright
Have a party, have a party tonight

She drives a supped up red convertible Mercedes Benz
And at a quarter till eight she goes picking up all her friends
She rolls into Cowboys she’s ready to go
Dancing on the bar doing “Cotton Eyed Joe”
Have a party, have a party tonight Party on!

She’s the first one there and the last one out the door
The band never stops cause she’s always shoutin “one more”
The bartender says, “You can’t stay here”
But she always talks them into having one more beer
Have a party, have a party tonight. Guitar!

I know a girl and her name is sweat Marlene
She’s got a birthday she just turned sweat sixteen
She goes out dancing every Saturday night
I see her out there makes me feel alright
Have a party, have a party tonight
Have a party, have a party tonight
Have a party, have a party tonight
She clutched my little hand, from her hospital bed
I knew she was real sick, and I was just a little kid
I was so scared that mom was going to die
But dad reassured me with such love in his eyes
He said, I'll take care of her son, everything will be alright
Say a prayer for your mom as you close your eyes tonight
I'll take care of her son the best that I can
'Cause that's what you do when your a man

Well time went quickly by, I grew up and found my girl
So I went and told my dad, I'm going to marry her
He said son it's not easy, it takes a lot of work
But I know you can make it if you live by these words
Just take care of her son with all the love in the world
Remember what I told you how a man should treat his girl
Just take care of her son the best that you can
'Cause that's what you do when your a man

He reached up and held my had from his hospital bed
His time was drawing near, by morning he'd be dead
He looked up and asked me son, "Please take care of your mom"
As tears filled my eyes, I gladly promised him
I'll take care of her dad like you always did
I remember what you told me when I was just a kid
I'll take care of her dad the best that I can 
You told me that's what you do when your a man
You told me that's what you do when you're a man

Alone Again

I can't believe she left me that stormy August night
She packed her bags and walked right out the door and out of sight
I stood and watched the lightning flashing in the sky
I couldn't believe that that girl could make me cry

Ooo, ooo I'm alone again
Ooo, ooo on my on again
Ooo, ooo I'm alone again
Ooo, ooo I surely need a friend

I can't believe she left me and I'm living all alone
I guess I'll have to learn to do things on my own
Thoughts of times together would slowly fade away
Lost like a memory from some childhood summers day

Chorus

I can't believe she left me so many years ago
What I've might have been I guess I'll never know
I see her face in someone every now and then
I guess I'll never see that that little girl again 

Chorus
Ooo Ooo

Hey Little Lady

Hey little lady you might want to know
that I ride a pony on the rodeo
get saddled up, rattled up, put on a show
when I ride a pony in the rodeo

Well I saw her down at the Chipawa County fairgrounds
I was ridin and wranglin in a hillbilly horse affair
I made sure she saw me in my chaps and boots and stetson
But she walked on by like she didn't even care

And I thought, "Hey little lady.....

When I saddled up my bronc I saw her in the grandstands
The gate flew open, my eight second ride begins
When the buzzer went off I hoped that she be watchin
But she was off getting cotton candy with her friends

And I thought, "Hey little lady..."

At the ho-down she was looking better than ever
With that sun dress on and her hair all up in curls
I said "hey little lady, what do think of this cowboy?"
But she just grabbed my hand and took me for a wirl

And I said, "Hey little lady..."

Try Me

Wouldn't you like someone to hold on to
Everyone wants someone to love them true
You want to be happy you've tried and you tried
But I know why your so empty inside

Chorus: You don't have someone to love, baby
The Problem is easy to see,
Oh, oh, oh You don't have someone to love
So why don't you try
Why don't you try
Why don't you try loving me

Wouldn't you like a companion as you grow old
Someone to cuddle close to when nights are cold
You've got everything that money can buy
So why not give something priceless a try
Chorus:
Solo:
Chorus,
Repeat Chorus

Island Song

The wind is blowing on the emerald sea
Nobody here just this guitar and me
The waves are breaking out on the reef
And palm trees' dancing back on the beach
I'm going to miss this simple island life
Warm lazy days here with my wife
She's still sleeping as the sun comes up
And I'm out early on this long boat dock.

Chorus: We're going home tomorrow
I wish time would just stand still And
Oh Lord please give me a little while
I'm going to miss this Island
I'm going to miss this Island

We'll paddle kayaks and snorkel the reef
Then order rum punch and a Bilikin beer
One last time at the Palapa Bar
Where I sing my songs and play my guitar
Then it's on a boat back to San Pedro
Then catch a plane over Mexico
Friends on the dock all waving goodbye
And I stand here with a tear in my eye
Chorus,
Chorus

Virginia Sweatheart

'Neck

She hails from Virginia it's a long long ways from here
From the mountains of Colorado to the hills of Bon Air
I said, Come walk with me a while before I leave this town
I'm going home to Colorado without this love I've found
And is there any chance we make it or will we drift apart
With miles so far between us my Virginia sweetheart
My Virginia sweetheart 

Remember when I last saw her that blonde hair and soft blue eyes
The world stopped around us as her eyes met mine 
I missed you here last weekend and even more as time goes by 
And that song means more than ever "Your always on my mind"

 And is there any chance we make it or will we drift apart
With miles so far between us my Virginia sweetheart
My Virginia sweetheart

And as the saying goes its where the heart is that makes it home
Well baby I'm feeling homeless sitting here all alone

 And is there any chance we make it or will we drift apart
With miles so far between us my Virginia sweetheart
My Virginia sweetheart

So come and let me hold you and let's relive that first spark
And let the world stop around us my Virginia sweetheart
My Virginia sweetheart
I was drinking beer at the Victorian Tavern just last Saturday Night
When a young lady I won't mention brought to my attention that there was fixin to be a fight
So I walked on over to see, it was my ole buddy "D"
I said "Hey you fellas, you mess with my partner, you're going to have to mess with me"

It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
And I'll know he'll be there to the end
It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
Well he's down at the Vic and he don't give a rip
He's going to rock on till the end

Well the police came in as I was finishing my gin and they proceeded to frisk everybody down
And through the process of elimination and a little witness intimidation they proceeded to leave us no doubt
That the culprits in custody was me and my ole buddy "D"
I said "Hey you coppers, you mess with my partner, you're going to have to mess with me"

It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
And I'll know he'll be there to the end
It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
Well he's down at the Vic and he don't give a rip
He's going to rock on till the end

It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, mud flappin, trailer livin, dog beatin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
And I'll know he'll be there to the end
It's my ole long haired, beer drinkin, skoal dippin, whiskey snortin, guitar picking, honkey tonk friend
Well he's down at the Vic and he don't give a rip
He's going to rock on till the end
Well he's down at the Vic and he don't give a rip
He's going to rock on till the end
