    Amos Moses by Jerry Reed
    
    Well Amos Moses was a Cajun,
    He lived by himself in the swamp.
    He hunted alligators for a livin,
    He just knocked 'em in the head with a stump.
    The Louisiana law gonna get ya Amos
    It ain't legal hunting alligators down in the swamp, boy
    
    Well everybody blamed his old man,
    For makin' him mean as a snake,
    When Amos Moses was a boy,
    His daddy would use him for alligator bait.
    Tie a rope around his neck, and throw him in the swamp,
    Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou
    
    About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Louisiana
    Lived a man named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
    hey raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries,
    Named him after a man of the cloth,
    Called him Amos Moses
    
    Well, the folks around south Louisiana
    Said Amos was a hell of a man
    He could trap the biggest, the meanest alligator
    And just use one hand
    That's all he's got left cause an alligator bit him
    Left arm gone clean up to the elbow
    
    Well the sheriff caught wind that Amos
    Was in the swamp huntin' alligator skins
    So he snuck in the swamp, gonna getcha boy,
    But he never come out again.
    Well, I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to?
    You can sure get lost in a Louisiana bayou!
    
    About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Louisiana
    Lived a man named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
    They raised a son who could eat up his weight in groceries,
    Named him after a man of the cloth,
    Called him Amos Moses

    "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" by Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty
    
    Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man 
    We get together every time we can.
    The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.
    
    See the alligators all a waitin' nearby 
    Sooner or later they know I'm gonna try.
    When she waves from the bank don't you know I know
    It's goodbye fishin' line, see you while ago.
    With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side
    The Mississippi River don't look so wide.

    We get together every time we can.
    The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.
    
    Well, I thought I'd been loved but I never had
    Till I was wrapped In the arms of a Mississippi man.
    When he holds me close it feels almost
    Like another hurricane just ripped the coast.
    If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him
    That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim.
    
    Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
    We get together every time we can.
    The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.
    
    Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it's one mile wide
    And I'm gotta get me to the other side.
    Mississippi man, I'm losin' my mind 
    Gotta have your loving one more time.
    I'm gonna jump in the river and here I go
    Too bad alligatior you swim too slow.
    
    Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
    We get together every time we can.
    The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.
    
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart.
    
    There's too much love in the Mississippi heart 
    Too much love in this Louisiana heart...

    Hey, hey, good lookin',

    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me? 
    Hey, sweet baby, 
    Don't you think maybe

    How's about keepin' steady company?

    'Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page.
     
    Hey, good lookin', 
    Whatcha got cookin'? 
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

    "Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton
    
    Midnight,
    and I'm a-waiting on the twelve-oh-five
    Hoping it'll take me just a little farther down the line
    
    Moonlight,
    you're just a heartache in disguise;
    Won't you keep my heart from breaking
    if it's only for a very short time
    
    Playing with the queen of hearts,
    knowing it ain't really smart
    The joker ain't the only fool
    who'll do anything for you
    
    Laying out another lie,
    thinking 'bout a life of crime
    That's what I'll have to do
    to keep me away from you
    
    Honey, you know it makes you mad
    Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done
    Baby, I know it makes you sad
    But when they're handing out the heartaches
    you know you got to have you some
    
    Playing with the queen of hearts,
    knowing it ain't really smart
    The joker ain't the only fool
    who'll do anything for you
    
    Lovers, I know you've had a few
    But hide your heart beneath the covers
    and tell 'em they're the only one
    And others, they know just what I'm going through
    And it's a-hard to be a lover when you say you're only in it for fun
    
    Playing with the queen of hearts,
    knowing it ain't really smart
    The joker ain't the only fool who'll do anything for you
    
    Playing with the queen of hearts,
    knowing it ain't really smart
    The joker ain't the only fool
    who'll do anything for you
    
    Playing with the queen of hearts
    Playing with the queen of hearts..
    Playing with the queen of hearts...

    "One Step Forward" by Desert Rose Band
    
    You held me up held me down
    Made me crazy then you brought me around
    Were my darkness and my light
    You were my blindness and my sight
    
    Were my shelter and my storm
    Made me cold then you made me warm
    You were my fever and my cure
    Made me doubt and you made me sure
    
    One step forward and two steps back
    Nobody gets too far like that
    One step forward and two steps back
    This kind of dance can never last
    
    You were my hope and my fears
    You were my laughter and my tears
    Were my destiny and my fate
    Kept me movin' you made me wait
    
    Were my weakness and my power
    You were the thorn and the flower
    You were my sunshine and the rain
    Made me feel so good brought so much pain
    
    Now one step forward and two steps back
    Nobody gets too far like that
    One step forward and two steps back
    This kind of dance can never last
    
    And we never really meant for each other
    We were never really meant to last
    In the years that we danced together
    Each step forward we took two steps back
    Each step forward we took two steps back
    
    Now one step forward and two steps back
    Nobody gets too far like that
    One step forward and two steps back
    This kind of dance can never last
    
    One step forward and two steps back
    Nobody gets too far like that
    One step forward and two steps back
    This kind of dance can never last

    "Crazy" by Willie Nelson
    
    I'm crazy
    Crazy for feeling so lonely
    I'm crazy
    Crazy for feeling so blue
    
    I know
    You'd love me as long as you wanted
    Then someday
    Leave me for somebody new
    
    Worry
    Why do I let myself worry
    Wondering
    What in the world did I do
    
    Crazy
    For thinking that my love could hold you
    I'm crazy for crying
    I'm crazy for trying
    I'm crazy for loving you

    "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray" by Patsy Cline
    
    Two cigarettes in an ashtray,
    My love and I in a small café.
    Then a stranger came along,
    And everything went wrong.
    Now there's three cigarettes in the ashtray.
    
    I watched her take him from me,
    And his love is no longer my own.
    Now they are gone, and I sit alone,
    And watch one cigarette burn away.
    
    I watched her take him from me,
    And his love is no longer my own.
    Now they are gone, and I sit alone,
    And watch one cigarette burn away.

    "Make the World go away" by Mickey Gilley
    
    Make the world go away
    Get it off my shoulder
    Say the things we used to say
    And make the world, make it go away
    
    Do you remember when you loved me
    Before the world took you away
    Well if you do, then forgive me
    And make the world, make it go away
    
    Make the world go away
    Get it off my shoulder
    Say the things we used to say
    And make the world, make it go away
    
    Now I'm sorry if I hurt you
    Let me make it up to you day by day
    And if you will please forgive me
    And make the world, make it go away
    
    Make the world go away
    Get it off my shoulder
    Say the things we used to say
    And make the world, make it go away

    “Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” by Ed Bruce
    
    Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold.
    They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold.
    Lonestar belt buckles and old faded levis,
    And each night begins a new day.
    If you don't understand him, an' he don't die young,
    He'll probably just ride away.
    
    Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
    Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
    Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
    Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
    'Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone.
    Even with someone they love.
    
    Cowboys like smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings,
    Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night.
    Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do,
    Sometimes won't know how to take him.
    He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him,
    Do things to make you think he's right.
    
    Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
    Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
    Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
    Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
    'Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone.
    Even with someone they love.

    "Always Wanting You" by Merle Haggard
    
    Always wanting you, but never having you,
    Makes it hard to face tomorrow.
    'Cause I know I'll wake up wanting you again.
    Always loving you, but never touching you,
    Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.
    
    I'd been better off if I'd turned away,
    And never looked at you the second time.
    'Cause I really had my life all together,
    'Til your eyes meet mine.
    And there I saw a yearning,
    And a feeling across the room that you felt for me.
    Wish I'd had away of knowing.
    The things we had in mind could never be.
    
    Always wanting you, but never having you,
    Makes it hard to face tomorrow.
    'Cos I know I'll wake up wanting you again.
    Always loving you, but never touching you,
    Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.
    
    Always wanting you, but never having you,
    Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.

    "All My Exes Live In Texas" by Whitey Shafer
    
    All my ex's live in Texas,
    And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
    But all my ex's live in Texas
    And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
    
    Rosanna's down in Texarcana, wanted me to push her broom,
    And sweet Ilene's in Abilene, she forgot I hung the moon,
    And Allison in Galveston somehow lost her sanity,
    And Dimples, who now lives in Temple's,
    Got the law lookin’ for me.
    
    All my ex's live in Texas,
    And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
    But all my ex's live in Texas,
    And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
    
    I remember that old Frio river where I learned to swim.
    And it brings to mind another time where I wore my welcome thin.
    My transcendental meditation, I go there each night,
    But I always come back to myself
    Long before daylight.
    
    All my ex's live in Texas,
    And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be.
    But all my ex's live in Texas
    And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
    
    Some folks think I'm hidin',
    It's been rumored that I died,
    But I'm alive and well in Tennessee.

    "I Love a Rainy Night" by Eddie Rabbit
    
    Well, I love a rainy night
    I love a rainy night
    I love to hear the thunder
    Watch the lightning
    When it lights up the sky
    You know it makes me feel good
    
    Well, I love a rainy night
    It's such a beautiful sight
    I love to feel the rain
    On my face
    Taste the rain on my lips
    In the moonlight shadow
    
    Showers washed
    All my cares away
    I wake up to a sunny day
    'Cos I love a rainy night
    Yeah, I love a rainy night
    Well, I love a rainy night
    Well, I love a rainy night
    
    Ooh-ooh
    
    I love a rainy night
    I love a rainy night
    I love to hear the thunder
    Watch the lightning
    When it lights up the sky
    You know it makes me feel good
    
    Well, I love a rainy night
    It's such a beautiful sight
    I love to feel the rain
    On my face
    To taste the rain on my lips
    In the moonlight shadows
    
    Puts a song
    In this heart of mine
    Puts a smile on my face every time
    
    'Cos I love a rainy night
    Yeah, I love a rainy night
    Ooh, I love a rainy night
    Yeah, I love a rainy night

    "New York City" by The Statler Brothers
    
    She came to me shortly after Christmas,
    Said she hated spoiling New Year's Eve.
    But the truth doesn't wait to come in season
    And what we had feared was now believed
    She said she'd leave come Monday morning,
    Catch a plane if I'd split the fair.
    She had friends who lived in New York City.
    She'd look them up and have the baby there.
    
    And now she's alone in New York City,
    Living like… Lord, I wonder how.
    An angel in hell in New York City,
    But I can't think about that now.
    
    Honey, will you tell him Bible stories
    And give him all the love I never could?
    And never tell him too much about his daddy
    'Cause there's not too much to say that's good.
    He'll have to learn it all from his mother:
    How to count and say his ABC's.
    But when you teach him prayers to say at bedtime,
    Leave off "God bless Daddy," won't you please?
    
    And now they're alone in New York City,
    Living like Lord… I wonder how.
    Two angels in hell in New York City,
    But I can't think about that now.
    I can't think about that now.

    "Bed of Roses" by The Statler Brothers
    
    She was called a scarlet woman by the people,
    Who would go to church but left me in the street,
    With no parents of my own, I never had a home,
    And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat.
    
    She found me outside one Sunday morning,
    Taking money from a man I didn't know,
    She took me in and wiped away my childhood,
    A woman of the streets this Lady Rose.
    
    This bed of roses that I lay on,
    Where I was taught to be a man,
    This bed of roses where I'm living,
    Is the only kind of love I understand.
    
    She was a handsome woman, just thirty-four,
    Who was spoken to in town by very few.
    She managed a late evening business,
    Like most of the town wished they could do.
    
    And I learned all the things that a man should know,
    From a woman not approved of I suppose,
    But she died knowing that I really loved her,
    Off life's bramble bush,I picked a rose.
