Lyrics YOU CALLED ME BY HER NAME AGAIN,
THINKING I WAS HER AGAIN,
WHEN'S THIS EVER GONNA END, OH,
YOU'RE LIVING SOMEWHERE IN THE PAST,
MISSING LOVE THAT DIDN'T LAST,
AND WHAT WE HAVE IS FADING FAST.

OH...OHAND
THIS AIN'T NINETEEN NINETY NINE,
THIS IS HERE AND NOW,
YOU ARE MINE
BUT YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON ME,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON US,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' YOURSELF
RIGHT OUT OF LOVE.
YOU'RE SLIPPING AWAY
FROM ME UNCONSCIOUSLY,
AND I'M LOSING YOU
TO SOME OLD MEMORY.
YOU'RE HAUNTED
BY THAT GHOST IN YOU,
SHE ALWAYS GETS THE MOST OF YOU,
JUST WANT TO BE THAT CLOSE TO YOU.

I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG,
I CAN'T CHANGE YOUR MIND.
BUT THE ONLY THING I KNOW
IS THAT I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND,
I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND.

Lyrics SHE SAT ALL ALONE
ON A BUS OUT OF BEAUMONT,
THE COURAGE OF JUST EIGHTEEN YEARS.
A PENNY AND QUARTER TAPED TO A LETTER,
AND MOMMA'S GOODBYE IN HER EARS.
SHE WATCHED
AS HER HIGH SCHOOL FADED BEHIND HER
AND THE HOUSE
WITH THE WHITE PICKET FENCE,
THEN SHE READ THE NOTE
THAT HER MOMMA HAD WROTE,
WRAPPED UP
WITH TWENTY SIX CENTS.

WHEN YOU GET LONELY,
CALL ME, ANY TIME AT ALL.
I'LL BE THERE WITH YOU,
ALWAYS,
ANYWHERE AT ALL.
THERE'S NOTHING I GOT
THAT I WOULDN'T GIVE,
AND MONEY IS NEVER ENOUGH.
HERE'S A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS,
A QUARTER FOR THE CALL,
AND ALL OF YOUR MOMMA'S LOVE.

A PENNY AND A QUARTER
BUYS A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING
TAPED TO AN OLD WRINKLED NOTE,
AND WHEN SHE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH
SHE HAD ALL MOMMA'S LOVE
INSIDE THAT OLD ENVELOPE.

OH, IT'S BEEN YEARS
SINCE MOMMA'S BEEN GONE.
BUT WHEN SHE HOLDS THE COINS
SHE FEELS THE HER LOVE
JUST AS STRONG.

Lyrics Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

verse 1:
I'M LOOKING
AT THE PICTURE
YOU GAVE ME.
I SEE THE WORDS
I LOVE YOU
BY YOUR NAME.
BUT SOMEONE ELSE'S ARMS
ARE NOW AROUND YOU,
AND NOW I'M LEFT
WITH JUST
THIS PICTURE FRAME.

Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

verse 2:
IF I COULD BE GLASS
THAT HOLDS YOUR PICTURE,
THOSE LIPS I LOVE
WOULD THEN
BE CLOSE TO ME.
SOMETIMES I'M GLAD
THAT I CAN HOLD
YOUR PICTURE,
BUT SOMETIMES
IT'S JUST NOT ENOUGH
FOR ME.

Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
THERE AIN'T NOTHIN'
I CAN DO,
NOR NOTHIN'
I CAN SAY,
THAT FOLKS
DON'T CRITICIZE ME;
BUT I'M GONNA DO
JUST AS I WANT TO
ANYWAY,
I DON'T CARE
IF THEY ALL DESPISE ME.

[Chorus 1]:
IF I SHOULD TAKE
A NOTION
TO JUMP INTO
THE OCEAN,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I GO TO CHURCH
ON SUNDAY,
THEN CABARET
ALL DAY
THRU MONDAY,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF MY FRIEND
GOT NO MONEY
AND I SAY,
TAKE ALL MINE,
HONEY,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I GIVE HER
MY LAST NICKEL
AND IT LEAVES ME
IN A PICKLE,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.

[verse 2]:
AFTER ALL,
THE WAY TO DO
IS DO
JUST AS YOU PLEASE
REGARDLESS
OF THEIR TALKIN';
OFTENTIMES
THE ONES THAT TALK
WILL GET DOWN
ON THEIR KNEES
AND BEG YOUR PARDON
FOR THEIR SQUAWKIN'.

[Chorus 2]:
IF I DISLIKE
MY LOVER
AND LEAVE HER
FOR ANOTHER,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
RATHER THAN
PERSECUTE ME,
I CHOOSE
THAT YOU
WOULD SHOOT ME,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I SHOULD
GET THE FEELIN'
TO DANCE
UPON THE CEILIN',
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I LET
MY BEST COMPANION
DRIVE ME
RIGHT
INTO THE CANYON,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.

Lyrics WELL, I WENT TO A TURKEY ROAST
DOWN THE STREET,
THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE
EATING LIKE WILD GEESE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

TALK ABOUT YOUR PEOPLE
HAVIN' WHALE OF A TIME,
EATIN' UP THE CHICKEN
AND DRINKIN' THEIR WINE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

NOW SOME FOLKS SAY
THAT A TRAMP WON'T STEAL,
BUT I CAUGHT THREE
IN MY CORNFIELD,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

ONE HAD A BUSHEL,
THE OTHER HAD A PECK,
ONE HAD A ROASTED EAR
TIED AROUND HIS NECK,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

THERE COMES SAL
WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SHOES
TIED ON HER FEET,
GOOD MORNING, HONEY,
STAND OVER THERE, BABY,
GET OVER THERE NOW.

HELLO, SAL,
NOW, I KNOW YOU,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SLIPPER
AN' A TORE UP SHOE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

WHEN I GET READY
TO LEAVE THIS EARTH,
I'M GONNA LOOK BACK
ON MY MONEY'S WORTH,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

Lyrics YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING ME
FROM A DISTANCE,
TRYING TO KEEP THE PIECES
ALL IN PLACE.
IN MY HEART
IS A FOOLISH PERSISTENCE,
BEEN TAKING YOU FOR GRANTED
UP UNTIL TODAY.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO BE SO STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

CAN'T YOU SEE THE REGRET,
HOW IT HOLDS ME,
WRAPPED AROUND MY SOUL
LIKE A WINTER CHILL.
I COULD LET IT GO
IF YOU TOLD ME
THAT YOU ALWAYS LOVED ME
AND YOU ALWAYS WILL.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE LOVE
TO BE SO STRONG,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO KEEP OUR LOVE
BURNING STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

Lyrics THE FIRST RULE
IS THERE AIN'T NO RULES
SOME YOU WIN
AND SOME YOU LOSE.
JUST WHEN YOU THINK
THAT LOVE IS TRUE
SOMEBODY
MAKES A FOOL OUTTA YOU,
LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

YOU AND ME
MAKE LOVE ALL NIGHT,
END UP
IN A KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT FIGHT,
KICK AND CUSS
AND SCREAM AND SHOUT,
TILL WE'VE FORGOTTEN
WHAT WE'RE FIGHTIN' ABOUT.
THEN WE KISS
AND MAKE UP
AND LOVE SOME MORE
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

ANYTHING GOES
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
SOMEONE'S GOIN' DOWN
WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE.
IT'S A FIGHT TO THE FINISH
WITH NO HOLDS BARRED,
IF SOMEONE WINDS UP
WITH A BROKEN HEART,
THAT'S TOUGH.

BABY, YOU KNOW
THAT I SURE WOULD GRIEVE
IF YOU WERE EVER TO LEAVE ME.
GUESS I'D HAVE TO FIND ME
SOMEONE NEW,
SOMEONE WHO'S
A LITTLE BIT PRETTIER THAN YOU
JUST TO EVEN UP THE SCORE,
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE,
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

Lyrics YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU SO,
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO;
AND DARLING,
I'LL BE TRUE,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.
YOU SET MY HEART AFIRE;
YOU ARE MY ONE DESIRE.
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME TOO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

THAT'S WHY I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I COULD NEVER LET YOU GO;
OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE.
IT WOULD BE,
OH, SO THRILLING
TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE WILLING
TO SPEND YOUR LIFE WITH ME.

SO MAKE YOUR ANSWER YES;
YOU ARE MY HAPPINESS.
PLEASE DARLING SAY YOU DO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

Lyrics ALL RIGHT,
SO I AM TO BLAME,
ALL RIGHT,
I'VE BROUGHT ON
ALL THIS SHAME.
YOU'VE TOLD ME NOW
A MILLION TIMES
YOU JUST WON'T LEAVE
THE PAST BEHIND,
SO ALL RIGHT,
MY DEAR,
I'LL SET YOU FREE.

THE LOVE YOU SAID YOU HAD FOR ME
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOO STRONG.
IF YOU CAN'T FORGIVE ME NOW
FOR DOING JUST ONE WRONG,

SO, ALL RIGHT,
THO' IT HURTS ME SO,
I'LL PAY THE COST,
YOUR LOVE I'VE LOST,
I GUESS IT'S TIME TO GO.

ALL RIGHT,
SO I AM TO BLAME,
ALL RIGHT,
I'VE BROUGHT ON
ALL THIS SHAME.
YOU'VE TOLD ME NOW
A MILLION TIMES
YOU JUST WON'T LEAVE
THE PAST BEHIND,
SO ALL RIGHT,
MY DEAR,
I'LL SET YOU FREE.

THE LOVE YOU SAID YOU HAD FOR ME
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOO STRONG.
IF YOU CAN'T FORGIVE ME NOW
FOR DOING JUST ONE WRONG,

SO, ALL RIGHT,
I'VE CHEATED AND I'VE LIED,
I BROKE EACH VOW,
WE'RE PARTING NOW
BUT IT WILL HAVE TO BE
ALL RIGHT.

Lyrics HOW I'D LOVE TO BE AROUND YOU
WHEN THE LONELY NIGHT SURROUNDS YOU,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU?
WHAT I'D GIVE
TO HAVE THE POWER
TO READ YOUR MIND
ONE HOUR,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

JUST TO BE WITH YOU
ONE NIGHT,
YOU AND ME ALONE,
KISS YOUR LIPS
AND HOLD YOU TIGHT
AND HAVE YOU
FOR MY OWN.

IF I ONLY KNEW FOR CERTAIN
I'D CUT OUT ALL MY FLIRTIN',
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU?
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE AROUND YOU
WHEN THE LONELY NIGHT SURROUNDS YOU,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

THIS COULD BE A JOY UNENDING,
COULD BE A REAL BEGINNING,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

Lyrics verse 1:
YOUR EYES ONCE TOLD ME A STORY
I BUILT MY CASTLES ON AIR.
LIFE WAS SOON DIMMED
OF ITS GLORY,
I LOVED
BUT YOU CEASED TO CARE.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

verse 2:
YOU BROKE THE NEWS TO ME
KINDLY,
I CAN'T SAY
YOU WERE NOT FAIR.
YET, JUST BECAUSE I LOVED
BLINDLY,
I HAVE THE BURDEN TO BEAR.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

Lyrics verse 1:
MY LATEST SUN
IS SINKING FAST,
MY RACE
IS NEARLY RUN.
MY STRONGEST TRIALS
NOW ARE PAST,
MY TRIUMPH
HAS BEGUN.

Chorus:
OH COME, ANGEL BAND,
COME AND AROUND ME STAND.
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME,
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME.

verse 2:
OH BEAR MY LONGING HEART
TO HIM
WHO BLED
AND DIED FOR ME,
WHOSE BLOOD
NOW CLEANSES FROM ALL SIN
AND GIVES ME VICTORY.

Chorus:
OH COME, ANGEL BAND,
COME AND AROUND ME STAND.
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME,
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME.
