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)




Grandpa
Words and Music by Jamie O'Hara

Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like
This world's gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy

(Chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress
But I just don't know
And Grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture
Of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days





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
