We loaded up my old station wagon
With a tent, colon, and sleepin' bags
Some fishin' poles, a cooler of Cokes
Three days before we had to be back
When you're seven, you're in Seventh Heaven
When you're goin' campin' in the wild outdoors
And as we turned off o that old dirt road,
He looked at me and swore

(Chorus)
Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Well, his fifteenth birthday rolled around
Classic cars were his thing
When I pulled in the drive with that old 'Vette
I thought that boy would go insane
When you're in your teens
Your dreams revolve around four spinning wheels
We worked nights on end 'til it was new again
And as he sat behind the wheel, he said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Standin' in a little room
Back of the church with our tuxes on
Lookin' at him I say
"I can't believe, son, that you're grown"
He said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout bein' like you
Now it's me and her watchin' you and Mom I've learned
I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life

I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life

w/ Alan Jackson

Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue.
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used.
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul.
They got away with murder down on music row.

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang (oh, you tell them
Alan).
They all say not guilty, but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on music row.

Chorus:
For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play,
But drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed up in your face.
Old Hank wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on music row.

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs (I'll still buy
'em)
Well there ain't no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
Murder's been committed down on music row.

Chorus:
Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can't hear fiddles play
With drums and rock 'n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
Why, the Hag, he wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on music row
Why, they even tell the Possum to pack up and go back home
There's been an awful murder down on music row.

. . .



Baby all I got is this beat up leather bag
And everything I own don't fill up half
But don't you worry 'bout the way I pack
All I care about is gettin' back, real soon
A goodbye kiss is all I need from you

Cause I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me
It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me

On a lonely highway stuck out in the rain
Darlin' all I have to do, is speak your name
The clouds roll back and the waters part
The sun starts shinin' in my heart for you
You're right there in everything I do...cause

Cause I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me
It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me

It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me
I'm carrying your love with me

I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me

. . .



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'

. . .



Without a warning
You're out of control
The ground shakes and the ocean rolls
this is the big one
There's nowhere to run
On the Richter scale of a romance
You hit twelve and you don't stand a chance
This is the big one
I'm falling in love

Chorus:
Now it's beat, beat, beat
My heart's sending out a message
Please, please, please
Don't save me tonight
S.O.S. in this situation means
She's out of sight

No need to panic
I tell myself
But I've never felt this feeling
With anybody else
So, this is the big one
I'm falling in love

Chorus

This is the big one
I'm falling in love

. . .



I don't take my whiskey to extremes
Don't believe in chasin' crazy dreams
My feet are planted firmly on the ground
But darlin' when you come around

[chorus]
I get carried away by the look by the light in your eyes
Before I even realize the ride I'm on
Baby I'm long gone
I get carried away nothin' matters but bein' with you
Like a feather flyin' high up in the sky on a windy day
I get carried away

It might seem like an ordinary night
Same ol' stars same ol' moon up high
But when I see you standin' at your door
Nothin's ordinary anymore

[chorus]

[chorus]

Carried away

. . .



You swear you've had enough
You're ready to give up
On that little lie they call love
Then out of the blue clear sky

Fallin' right into your hands
Like rain on the desert sand
It's the last thing you had planned
Out Of The Blue Clear Sky

[chorus]
Here she comes a walkin' talkin' true love
Sayin' I been lookin' for you love
Surprise your new love has arrived
Out of the blue clear sky

Ain't love a funny thing
One day you're givin' up the dream
And the next you're pickin' out a ring
Out of then blue clear sky

[chorus]

Here she comes a walkin' talkin' true love
Sayin' I been lookin' for you love
Surprise your new love has arrived
Out of the blue clear

[chorus]

Out of the blue clear sky

. . .



We really shouldn't be doin' this
And we both know why
Just being close enough to think like this
Enough to make you need to lie

This kinds talk will lead us to somewhere
We're gettin' way too close to going there
The farther off the better to resist
We really shouldn't be doin' this

Only an isolated incident
But the acquaintance left me stunned
The first attractions was the hardest hit
I thought I'd ever overcome

This kinds situation has to pass
The chance encounter has to be the last
To take it further we would be remiss
We really shouldn't be doin' this

We'd each be hurting somebody else
If we don't say our good-byes real fast
Won't even think about a farewell kiss
We really shouldn't be doing this

Well........

. . .



Her telephone rang 'bout a quarter to nine
She heard his voice on the other end of the line
She wondered what was wrong this time
She never knew what his calls might bring
With a cowboy like him, it could be anything
And she always expected the worst
In the back of her mind

He said, it's cold out here and I'm all alone
I didn't make the short go, again and I'm coming home
I know I've been away too long
I never got a chance to write or call
And I know this rodeo has been hard on us all
But I'll be home soon
And honey is there somethin' wrong

She said, don't bother comin' home
By time you get here I'll be long gone
There's somebody new and he sure ain't no rodeo man
He said, I'm sorry it's come down to this
There's so much about you that I'm gonna miss
But it's alright baby
If I hurry I can still make Cheyenne
Gotta go now baby
If I hurry I can still make Cheyenne

He left that phone danglin' off the hook
Then slowly turned around and gave it one last look
Then he just walked away
He aimed his truck toward that Wyoming line
With a little luck he could still get there in time
And in that Cheyenne wind he could still hear her say

She said, don't bother comin' home
By time you get here I'll be long gone
There's somebody new and he sure ain't no rodeo man
He said, I'm sorry it's come down to this
There's so much about you that I'm gonna miss
But it's alright baby
If I hurry I can still make Cheyenne
Gotta go now baby
If I hurry I can still make Cheyenne

She never knew what his calls might bring
With a cowboy like him, it could be anything
And she always expected the worst
In the back of her mind

. . .



True in this modern world when two lovers get together
Chances of'em ever makin' it to forever
Couldn't be better than two in a million hearts
Girl this ain't just another run of the mill emotion
What I'm feelin' is the definition of devotion
My love for you is true

True , like the sun comin' up each mornin'
Bright as the light in a baby's smile
Sure as a mountain river windin'
Right as the rain fallin' from the sky
Girl my love for you, is true

True, not another minute on this earth can be borrowed
So there's no way to know when I'll live my last tomorrow
But everyday I get, I'll share with you
This feelin' just keeps gettin' stronger as the time goes by
It's written on my face, you can see it in my eyes
My love for you is true

True , like the sun comin' up each mornin'
Bright as the light in a baby's smile
Sure as a mountain river windin'
Right as the rain fallin' from the sky
Girl my love for you, is true

True , like the sun comin' up each mornin'
Bright as the light in a baby's smile
Sure as a mountain river windin'
Right as the rain fallin' from the sky
Girl my love for you, is true

. . .



I gave her that diamond she dreamed of
And I bought her a home with a view
I took her to the end of the rainbow
But all I left her was blue

Seems like I never had time to love her
And now it seems time just stands still
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

Now I'm here alone after leavin' her lonely
Lord I'm livin' with a memory
I know I can't kill
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

Now I'm here alone after leavin' her lonely
Lord I'm livin' with a memory
I know I can't kill
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

. . .



As far as all my friends can tell I took her leavin' well
That's kinda right
'Cause when I'm out with them
I don't let her memory
rule the night
for the most part I'm okay
but I still miss her in a round about way

[chorus]
around about the time that midnight rolls around
that's around about the time my tears start fallin' down
cause she's not around
I come unwound and my heart breaks
Yeah, I still miss her in a round about way

I no longer sit alone for hours by the phone
wishin she would call
and just the other day I took her smilin' face
down off my wall
I've come a long long way
but I still miss her in a round about way

[chorus]

. . .



At a table for two
With candlelight and wine
That diamond burnin' holes in his pockets
Thinkin' now's the perfect time
When he popped the question he could see
The teardrops fill her eyes
She said I knew this was comin', and I'm sorry
But I hope you realize

Chorus: You can't make a heart love somebody,
You can tell it what to do
But it won't listen at all
You can't make a heart love somebody
You can lead a heart to love
But you can't make it fall.

Then she reached for his hand
And said I want you to know
I've done everything that I know of
To make the feelin' grow
I've begged and I've pleaded with my heart
But there's no gettin' through
My heart's the only part of me
That's not in love with you

You can't make a heart love somebody,
You can tell it what to do
But it won't listen at all
You can't make a heart love somebody
You can lead a heart to love
But you can't make it fall.

You can't make a heart love somebody,
You can tell it what to do
But it won't listen at all
You can't make a heart love somebody
You can lead a heart to love
But you can't make it fall.

You can lead a heart to love
But you can't make it fall.

. . .



I'm not yours and baby you're not mine
We've got somethin' and it sure is fine
Let's take our love one night at a time
There's one thing that we both agree
I like you and baby you like me
Let's take our love one night at a time

All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time
All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time

Oh I think about you all day long
It feels so good it can't be wrong
I've got my fingers crossed that this goes on and on
Tomorrow, well, that's another day,
Come on baby, now what do you say
Lets take our love one night at a time

All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time

(instrumental break)

Oh I think about you all day long
It feels so good it can't be wrong,
I've got my fingers crossed that this goes on and on

All night, love all night, practice makes perfect, gonna get it right
Gonna get it right, one night at a time
All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
Gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time
All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
Gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time

. . .



We made it final today
I gave you all I had, you made your get away
all the love we once made
turned to memories today

I left the courtroom
and went straight to the church
I hit my knees and told God how much I hurt
there's nothing left of my heart
it's going to be so hard to make a new start

(CHORUS)
Cause today my world slipped away
we buried the plans that we made
and tonight I'm alone and afraid
cause today my world slipped away

All my friends say I'll make it alright
I'll recover and start a new life
but that'll be so hard to do
cause livin' ain't worth livin' without you

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Cause today my world slipped away
