I felt the rush of the Rio Grande into Yellowstone
And I've seen first-hand Niagra Falls
And the lights of Vegas
I've criss-crossed down to Key Biscayane
And Chi-town via Bangor, Maine
Think I've seen it all
And all I can say is

Chorus:
How 'bout them cowgirls
Boys ain't they somthin'
Sure are some proud girls
And you can't tell them nothin'
And I tell you right now girls
May just be seven wonders of this big, old round world
But how 'bout them cowgirls

She's a ridin' colts in Steamboat Springs
Bailing hay outside Abilene
She's trying hard
To fit in some city
But her home is 'neath that big, blue sky
And the Northern Plains and those other wide open spaces

Chorus

Boy, she don't need you and she don't need me
She can do just fine on her own two feet
But she wants a man who wants her to be herself
And she'll never change, don't know how to hide
Her stubborn will or her fightin' side
But you treat her right and she'll love you like no on else

Yeah, how 'bout them cowgirls
Boys ain't they somethin'
Sure some are proud girls
But you can't beat their lovin'
And I'll tell you right now girls
May just be seven wonders of this big, old round world
But how 'bout them cowgirls
How 'bout them boys

Amarillo by morning
Up from San Antone
Everything that I've got
Is just what I've got on
When that sun is high
In that Texas sky
I'll be bucking at the county fair
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo I'll be there

They took my saddle in Houston
Broke my leg in Sante Fe
Lost my wife and a girlfriend
Somewhere along the way
Well I'll be looking for eight
When they pull that gate
And I'm hoping that
Judge ain't blind
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo's on my mind

Amarillo by morning
Up from San Antone
Everything that I've got
Is just what I've got on
I ain't got a dime
But what I've got is mine
I ain't rich
But Lord I'm free
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo's where I'll be

Amarillo by morning

They call me the fireman
That's my name
Makin' my rounds all over town
Puttin' out old flames

Well everybody'd like to have what I've got
I can cool 'em down while they're smolderin' hot
I'm the fireman
that's my name

Last night they had a bad one a mile or two down the road
Well my buddy walked out and left this woman burnin out of control
Well I was down there in 'bout an hour or so
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go
I'm the fireman that's my name

They call me the fireman
That's my name
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames
Well everybody'd like to have what I've got
I can cool 'em down while they're smolderin' hot
I'm the fireman that's my name...burn 'em up

I've got fire-engine red t-bird automobile
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill
I work twenty-four on and twenty-four off
When they get too hot, they just give me a call
I'm the fireman, that's my name

They call me the fireman, that's my name
Makin my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames
Well everybody'd like to have what I've got
I can cool 'em down while they're smolderin' hot
I'm the fireman, that's my name

They call me the fireman

. . .



Well I haven't seen her lately
And she never calls
She don't ask my friends about me
Gives no clues at all
That a fire might still be burnin', yeah
I'd say she's about as gone as a girl can get

She don't even show up in my dreams at night
But my stubborn old memory keeps holdin' on tight
Sure makes it hard to forget
She's about as gone as a girl can get

Chorus:
She's out of here
She disappeared without a trace
More or less unimpressed
By the tears on my face
Destination unknown
She just dropped out of sight
Last seen headin' right on out of my life
Like a stranger I ain't never met
She's about as gone as a girl can get

Repeat chorus

Like a stranger I ain't never met
Well I'd say she's about as gone as a girl can get

. . .



When did you stop lovin' me?
How long have I been a memory?
I've got to know for my own sanity
Tell me when did you stop lovin' me?

Was it that night that you stayed out until dawn?

You know that night has haunted me for so long

Or was your love already cold?
Tell me please I got to know
Darlin' when did you stop lovin' me?
There was a time when you
worshipped where I stood
Heaven knows I'd bring it back if I could

Now I can tell when we make love
It ain't me you're thinkin' of
Tell me when did you stop lovin' me?
Darlin', when did you stop lovin' me?

. . .



We said goodbye
In Marina Del Rey
"I had a good time"
Was the last thing I heard her say
As I walked away
And on this plane back to Tennessee
My mind comes across her memory
And yesterday
In Marina Del Rey

Chorus:
On a hidden beach under a golden sun
She spread a blanket
That we laid down on and loved the world away
In Marina Del Rey
And as we looked into each other's eyes
We found our body's lost in paradise
Like castaways
In Marina Del Rey

Like the ocean tides
High and lows
Love sometimes comes and goes away
In Marina Del Rey
And as this plane is touching down
Tears touch my eyes for I have found
My heart has stayed
In Marina Del Rey


. . .


(Bruce Robison/Monte Warden)

Every night it's the same
I hear you callin' my name
You're lyin' next to me
I give into your charms
You disappear in my arms
I realize it's just a dream, but

Chorus:
Desperately, I long to feel your touch
But you left me all alone in love

And now I
Shake the sleep from my head
And try to crawl out of bed
Today is just another day
I make the coffee for one
I turn the radio on
Pretend that everything's ok, but

Chorus

And now I
Know there's no reason to smile
It's gonna take me awhile
'Cause I still love you desperately

Chorus

And now I
Watch the sun goin' down
There ain't nobody around
I feel a night in the breeze
I keep on tellin' myself
I don't need nobody else
And I can do as I please, but

And now I

Chorus

And now
Every night it's the same
I hear you callin' my name
I still love you desperately
I still love you
I still want you

. . .



I knew the stakes were high right from the start
When she dealt the cards I dealt my heart
Now I just found a game that I can't play
And this is where the cowboy rides away

Chorus:
And my heart is sinking like the setting sun
Setting on the things I wish I'd done
It's time to say good bye to yesterday
This is where the cowboy rides away

We've been in and out of love and in between
And now we play the final showdown scene
And as the credits role a sad song starts to play
This is where the cowboy rides away

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun
Setting on the things I wish I'd done
Oh the last good bye's the hardest one to say
This is where the cowboy rides away

Oh the last good bye's the hardest one to say

. . .



Well I was ruling the roost
Had all the chicks to myself
And suddenly it happened
A funny little feeling I felt
Well I tried to outrun it
But it finally caught up with me
Tell me how can I run
From something I can't see

Chorus:
Oh that teenie, weenie thing
They call the lovebug
Nobody's ever seen it
But it's got the whole world shook up
It all started with a little bitty kiss and a hug
It's the little itty, bitty, teenie, weenie thing
They call the lovebug

Well I always thought that
I had me a pretty good style
But I lost that race
By a good old country mile
With my head held way up high
And it fooled me, hit me
Really took me by surprise

Chorus

Chorus

It's the little itty, bitty, teenie, weenie thing
They call the lovebug

. . .


(Anthony Smith/Bob DiPiero)

I take off time to time
With those crazy friends of mine
Head out on steel horses
With wheels and we ride

We burn up that road to old Mexico
Blend in with the desert
Just we amigos
And we roll

Chorus:
Cowboys like us sure do have fun
Racin' the wind, chasin' the sun
Take the long way around back to square one
Today we're just outlaws out on the run
There'll be no regrets, no worries and such
For cowboys like us

We talk about livin', babies, and women
All that we've lost and all we've been givin'
We sing about true love, lie about things we ain't done
Drink one more cold one, come mornin' get up
And we roll

Repeat Chorus twice


. . .


Written by Dean Dillon and Kerry Kurt Phil

He wondered how she'd take it when he said goodbye.
Thought she might do some cryin': lose some sleep at night.
But he had no idea, when he hit the road,
That without him in her life, she'd let herself go.

Let herself go on a singles cruise,
To Vegas once, then to Honolulu.
Let herself go to New York City:
A week at the Spa; came back knocked-out pretty.
When he said he didn't love her no more,
She let herself go.

Instrumental break.

She poured her heart an' soul into their three-bedroom ranch.
Spent her days raisin' babies, ironin' his pants.
Came home one day from the grocery store and found his note,
And without him there to stop her, she let herself go.

Let herself go on her first blind-date:
Had the time of her life with some friends at the lake.
Let herself go, buy a brand new car,
Drove down to the beach he always said was too far.
Sand sure felt good between her toes:

She let herself go on a singles cruise,
To Vegas once, then to Honolulu.
Let herself go to New York City:
A week at the Spa; came back knocked-out pretty.
When he said he didn't love her no more,
She let herself go.

To Vegas once: Honolulu, New York City.
Came back knocked-out pretty.

Written by Cory Mayo

Well, hope is an anchor and love is a ship:
Time is the ocean an' life is a trip.
You don't know where you're goin' till you know where you're at,
And if you can't read the stars, well, you better have a map:
A compass and a conscience so you don't get lost at sea,
Around some old lonely island where no one wants to be.

From the beginning of creation, I think our Maker had plan,
For us to leave these shores and sail beyond the sand.
An' let the Good Light guide us through the waves and the wind,
To the beaches in a world where we have never been.
And we'll climb up on the mountain, y'all: we'll let our voices ring,
When those who've never tried it, they'll be the first to sing.

Whoa, my, my:
I'll see you on the other side if I make it.
And it might be a long hard ride but I'm gonna take it.
Sometimes it seems that I don't have a prayer:
I let the weather take me anywhere,
But I know that I wanna go where the streets are gold,
'Cause you'll be there.
Oh, my, my.

Well, you don't bring nothin' with you here and you can't take nothin' back.
I ain't never seen a hearse with a luggage rack.
So I've torn my knees up prayin', scarred my back from fallin' down.
Spent so much time flyin' high, till I'm face first in the ground.
So if you're up there watchin' me, would you talk to God and say:
Tell him I might need a hand to see you both some day.

Oh, my, my:
So I'll see you on the other side if I make it.
And it might be a long hard ride but I wanna take it.
Sometimes it seems that I don't have a prayer:
I let the weather take me anywhere,
But I know that I wanna go where the streets are gold,
'Cause you'll be there. (You'll be there.)
Oh, my, my.
'Cause you'll be there. (You'll be there.)

. . .


(Jim Lauderdale/Carter Wood)

Don't make me come over there and love you
I'll be beside you in a single Bound
Don't make me come over there and love you
Cause I will right now

I dont need any explanation
Why I crave all your honey talk
Don't make me come over there and love you
'Cause it's a short walk

Chorus
You better tone down
Your persuasion
Start behaving
Before I go and fall apart

My hearts been on a long vacation
And now its beating like a Cha-Cha-Cha
Don't make me come over there and love you
'Cause I will right now

Chorus
Don't make me come over there and love you
Because it's looking like a perfect spot
Don't make me come over there and love you
And give all I got
Don't make me come over there and love you
'Cause I will right now
Yes I will right now
Don't make me come over there and love you

. . .



You're like the warm sunshine
I think of you all the time
I've fallen for you and that's a fact
What do you say to that

You're always in my dreams
I think you know what they mean
My heart knows this is real at last
What do you say to that

chorus:
Life could never be the same without you
Love was never really love without you
Here beside you is really where it's at
What do you say to that

I promise I'll never leave
I'll always want with me
Loving you won't ever be old hat
What do you say to that

(repeat chorus)

You're like the warm sunshine
I think of you all the time
I've fallen for you and that's a fact
What do you say to that
My heart knows this is real at last
What do you say to that

. . .



I'm drinking champagne, feelin' no pain till early mornin'.
Dinin' and dancin' with every pretty girl I can find.
I'm having a fling with a pretty young thing till early mornin'.
Knowin' tomorrow I'll wake up with you on my mind.

Chorus:
Guilty conscience I guess, though I must confess
I never loved you much when you were mine.
So I'll keep drinking champagne feelin' no pain till early mornin'.
Dinin' and dancin' with every pretty girl I can find.
Havin' a fling with a pretty young thing till early mornin'.
Knowin' tomorrow I'll wake up with you on my mind.

Chorus:
Guilty conscience I guess, though I must confess
I never loved you much when you were mine.
So I'll keep drinking champagne feelin' no pain till early mornin'.
Dinin' and dancin' with every pretty girl I can find.
I’ll keep havin' a fling with a pretty young thing till early mornin'.
Knowin' tomorrow I'll wake up with you on my mind.

. . .



As I hold you close tonight
Hear what I say
There's no doubt
It's love alright
'Cause I've never felt this way.

An angel's what you are
And now I see
You're not just someone else
You're something special to me.

Chorus:
Ev'ry man has a dream
And you made mine come true.
How it happened
I don't know or care.
I'm just happy I found you.
Wrapped in the arms of love
Is where I'll be
For all the world to see
You're something special to me.

Repeat Chorus:

. . .



She sparkles, she dazzles
She lights up the room
We walk together to a table for two
Every man stares but her eyes are only for me

We take to the dance floor
She squeezes my hand
I can't believe just how lucky I am

Meanwhile back in the back of my memory
You're still dancing with me
And I'm holding you once again
...Meanwhile

We move to the end
of a beautiful night
Tender the kisses
Soft candle light

She draws the curtains
Slowly we climb up the stairs
And reach for each other
The passion begins
We fall together as lovers and then...

Meanwhile back in the back of my memory
You're still lying with me
and I'm holding you once again

I try and I try
The Lord knows I do
But each time my heart beats back to you
Meanwhile I'll go on living my life now
I'll find a way somehow

Oh but meanwhile back in the back of my memory
You'll always be with me but I'll never hold you again
.... Meanwhile...

. . .



Chorus:
Adalida, pretty little cajun queen
Sweet dixie flower, the belle of the bayou
You're every young man's dream
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane
To stand beside you sweet Adalida
I'd swim the Pontchartrain

Oh no, here you comin' down the road
With your cotton dress a swishin', you gettin' some attention
From all the boys in the Thibodaux

Oh my your really feelin' up their eyes
Smilin' and a winkin', I know what they're thinkin'
But I'm the only one who loves you so!

Repeat Chorus

Oh no, the hottest little dish I know
I know you can tell it, you makin' me so jealous
From my head down to my toes
Oh me you could make a redneck green
The way that you're a lookin', you got me cookin'
And I ain't talkin' 'bout Etoufee'

. . .



Would you like to live in Houston
Where the cowboys come to town
Or maybe Pensacola
Where the sun shines all year 'round
Or even New York City
Where the city never sleeps
I'm offering you the option
Before you get in too deep

If you can anything else,
Baby, be good to yourself
You can find a nice place, have a good life
Don't worry 'bout me, I'm gonna be alright
You can make a new start,
You can see yourself clear
If you can do anything else, do it
But if you can't,
Baby, you can you stay right here

There's work up in Seattle,
If you don't mind the rain
San Diego to Savannah,
They'd all be glad you came
But life with me would always be
A roller coaster ride
You won't hurt my feelings,
Whatever you decide

If you can anything else,
Baby, be good to yourself
You can find a nice place, have a good life
Don't worry 'bout me, I'm gonna be alright
You can make a new start,
You can see yourself clear
If you can do anything else, do it
But if you can't,
Baby, you can you stay right here

This place might look real good right now,
But lookin' good don't last
But if you choose it, anyhow,
I'll give you all I have

If you can anything else,
Baby, be good to yourself
You can find a nice place, have a good life
Don't worry 'bout me, I'm gonna be alright
You can make a new start,
You can see yourself clear
If you can do anything else, do it
But if you can't,
Baby, you can you stay right here

. . .



Give me a bottle of your very best
'Cause I've got a problem I'm gonna drink off my chest
Gonna spend the night gettin' down
'Cause that woman I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

That woman I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
She kicked me outta the house and tonight I'm whiskey-bound
I'm gonna be the drunkest fool in town
'Cause that woman I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

Well she packed my bags and opened up the door
And I got the feeling she didn't want me around no more
She caught me in a lie, I was messin' around
And that woman I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

That woman I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
She kicked me outta the house and tonight I'm whiskey-bound
I'm gonna be the drunkest fool in town

. . .



Lately you've been showin' all the signs
of a woman with someone else on her mind
It's not your fault
some nights I've left you alone
and if you're thinking, you want a stranger
There's one coming home

Chorus:
If you're thinking you want a stranger
I'll soon be there
You're gonna see a change in me
this time I swear
No more late nights
comin' in at daylight
and no more doin' you wrong
and if you're thinking you want a stranger
There's one coming home

Bought you a silk gown and perfume today
picked up some roses
and champagne on the way
Oh I called to ask you
to put some soft music on
Cause if you're thinking, you want a stranger
There's one coming home

Chorus


. . .



If it was in your mind to really cut me down
If it was in your plan to walk me in the ground
You left with him last night then daylight told the rest
And if you planned on hurtin' me, you're an overnight success

I couldn't blame someone who'd steal your love away
Because I know what I've lost and all he's gained
Sweetheart last night I know he got the very best
And if you planned on hurtin' me, you're an overnight success

Can you handle all you've won from breaking my pride
Will he stay with you and help you spend all the tears I've cried
Sweetheart I love you so and wish you happiness
