    Pop A Top

    (Nat Stuckey)

    (Chorus)
    Pop a top again
    I've just got time for one more round
    Sit 'em up my friend
    Then I'll be gone
    And then you can let some other fool sit down

    I'd like for you'd to listen to
    A joke I heard today
    From a woman who
    Said she was through
    And calmly walked away
    I tried to smile
    And did a while
    But it felt so outta place
    Did you ever hear of a clown with tearsdrops
    Streammin' down his face
    (Chorus)

    Home for me is misery
    And here I am wasting time
    'Cause a row of fools
    On a row of stools
    Is not what's on my mind
    But then you see
    Her leaving me
    Is not what I perfer
    So it's either here just drinking beer
    Or at home remembering her

    (Chorus)

    Farewell Party

    (Lawton Williams)

    When the last breath of life
    Is gone, from my body
    And my lips are as cold as the sea
    When my friends gather round
    For my Farewell party
    Won't you pretend you love me

    (Chorus)
    There l be flowers from those
    Who'll cry when I go
    And leave you in this old world alone
    I know you'll have fun
    At my Farewell party
    I know you'll be glad when I'm gone

    Don't be mad at me
    For wanting to keep you
    'Till my life on this old world is through
    You'll be free at the end
    Of my Farewell party
    But I'll go away loving you

    (Chorus)

    Yes, I know you'll be glad when I'm gone

    Kiss An Angel Good Morning

    (Ben Peters)

    Whenever a chance to meet
    Some old friends on the street
    They wonder how does a man get to be this way
    I've always got a smiling face
    Anytime and anyplace
    And every time they ask me why
    I just smile and say

    (Chorus)
    You've got to kiss angel good mornin'
    And let her know you think about her when your gone
    So kiss an angel good mornin'
    And love her like the devil when you get back home

    Now people may guess
    The secret of happiness
    But some of them never learn, it's a simple thing
    The secret I'm speaking of
    Is a woman and a man in love
    And the answer is in this song that I always sing

    (Chorus)

    Right In The Palm Of Your Hand

    (Bob McDill)

    A willing woman, a willing man
    A five room house and a wedding band, believers, believers
    Once it begins, you know it don't take long
    'Til you're like two people in a heartbreak song
    And I wonder, I wonder

    (Bridge)
    Well ain't it just like a woman
    Ain't it just like a man
    Chasin' a rainbow, looking for love
    When it's right in the palm of your hand
    When it's right in the palm of your hand

    We can't take back those things we said
    So we watch it pass in seperate beds, changing, we're changing
    Too little love and too much pride
    You won't give in and neither will I, like children, children

    (Bridge) Feet on the floor, holding my head
    Sitting alone on the edge of the bed, I've been thinking, thinking
    Trying to find where we went wrong
    I just turned around and you were gone, it's over, it's over

    (Bridge)

    The Blues Man

    (Hank Williams)

    He's just a singer,
    A natural born guitar ringer
    Kind of a clinger to sad old songs
    He's not a walk-behinder,
    He's a new note finder
    His name's a reminder
    Of a blues man that's already gone

    So he started drinkin', took some things that messed up his thinkin'
    He was sure sinkin' when she came along
    He was born in the spot light, not to much left in sight
    She changed all that one night
    When she sang him this song

    Hey baby, I love you, Hey baby, I need you
    Hey baby, you ain't got to prove to me
    You're some kind of macho man
    You've wasted so much of your life
    Runnin' through the dark nights
    Let me shine a little love light
    Down on the blues man

    He got so sick of speedin', all things they said he was needing
    If he was to keep on pleasing all of his fans
    He got cuffed on dirt roads, he got sued over no shows
    She came and took that old load
    Down off of that blues man, and he sang

    Hey baby, I love you too
    Hey baby, I need you
    Hey baby, I do get tired of this travelin' band
    I'm over 40 years old now, nights would be so cold now
    If you hadn't stuck it out
    With this blues man

    He's over 40 years old now, nights would be so cold now
    If she hadn't hung around
    With that blues man

    Revenoor Man

    (Johnny Paycheck)

    Well I was sent to a place in North Carolina
    To check up on a moonshine still
    But when I got there, to my surprise
    I could see a little light on the hill
    Well the fire was glowin', ready I was knowin'
    I was really hot on the track
    But in D.C., they said it couldn't' be
    But I'll be the one to bring 'em back

    (Chorus)

    'Cause I'm a Revenooer man
    Hey, I'm a Revenooer man
    I've got a badge in my pocket and a gun on my hip
    Damn moonshiners better never make a slip
    'Cause I'm a Revenooer man
    Yeah I'll get 'em if I can

    Well the moon was shining bright as I looked down the river
    I noticed on the side of the hill
    I can see a red light that was glowin' bright
    I knew it had to be a still
    Well the people down the road said it wasn't far
    But I better know someone
    'Cause when the moonshiners know I carry a star
    I'll bet my bottom dollar, I'll have 'em on the run

    (Chorus)

    Well when I got there, the woods were bare
    They must've known I was on my way
    Well I heard the branches shatter, as they started to scatter
    I heard two or three of 'em say

    (2nd Chorus)
    It's the revenooer man, It's Revenooer man
    He's got a big .45 and loads to fill
    Raggin' and shaggin' to another hill
    It's the Revenooer man
    And he'll get us if he can

    Yeah, I'm the Revenooer man
    And I'll get 'em if I can...

    My Own Kind Of Hat

    (Merle Haggard, Red Lane)

    (Chorus)
    Cowboys and outlaws, right guys and south-paws
    Good dogs and all kinds of cats
    Dirt roads and white lines, and all kinds of stop signs
    I'll stand right here where I'm at
    'Cause I wear my own kind of hat

    There's two kinds of lovers and two kinds of brothers
    Two kinds of babies to hold
    There's two kinds of cherries and two kinds of fairies
    Two kinds of mothers I'm told, I'm told

    (Chorus)

    There's two kinds of brothers and two kinds of lovers
    And two kinds of babies to hold
    There's two kinds of cherries and two kinds of fairies
    Two kinds of mothers I'm told, I'm told

    She Just Started Liking Cheating Songs

    (Kent Robbins)

    (Chorus)
    She just started liking cheatin' songs
    And what's bothering me
    I don't know if it's the cheatin' she likes
    Or just the melody

    I've never had any reason to doubt her
    As far as I know she's been true
    But lately she's had a different look in her eyes
    I wonder if she's seein' somebody new
    You can't blame a body for looking
    And there's a world of people out there
    But I hope she's not taking any closer looks
    I tell ya lately, frankly I've been scared

    (Chorus)

    I've got to admit I do some looking too
    But she's the only one I love
    She still tells me she loves me
    But I wonder if my love's enough

    (Chorus)

    Yeah, I don't know if it's the cheatin' she likes
    Or just the melody

    The Way I Am

    (Sonny Throckmorton)

    Wish I were down, on some blue bayou
    With a bamboo cane, stuck in the sand
    But the road I'm on, don't seem to go there
    So I just dream, keep on being the way i am

    Wish I enjoyed, what makes my living
    And what I do, with a willing hand
    Some would run, but that ain't like me
    So, I just dream, keep on being the way I am

    (Chorus)
    The way I am, don't fit my shackles
    The way I am, reality
    I can almost see, that bobber dancin'
    So,I just dream, keep on being the way I am

    (Chorus)

    Yeah, I just dream, and keep on being the way I am

    It Must Be Love

    (Bob McGill)

    First I get cold, then hot
    Think I'm on fire, but I'm not
    Oh, what a pain I've got
    It must be love

    There's nothin' I can do
    All that I want is you
    Look what I'm goin' through
    It must be love

    (Chorus)
    It must be love, it must be love
    I fall like a sparrow, and fly like a dove
    You must be the dream, I been dreamin' of
    Oh what a feelin' it must be love

    Something is wrong, alright
    I think of you all night
    Can't sleep 'til morning light
    It must be love

    Seeing you in my dreams
    Holding you close to me
    Oh, what else can it be
    It must be love

    (Chorus)

    Once You've Had The Best

    (Johnny Paycheck)

    I'm so glad to have you back within these arms of mine
    I can finally go to sleep and get some rest
    Never once did I think of finding someone new
    'Cause there's nothing better, once you've had the best

    You're the very thing they sing about in love songs
    And one mistake don't mean you've failed the test
    As I lay beside you softly sleeping
    This I know, there's nothing better, once you've had the best

    Within your arms, I've had the best
    And I think the world should know
    I don't care what you've said or done
    I'll always love you so
    You've got more love in your little finger, than all the rest
    And there's nothing better, once you've had the best

    No there's nothing better, once you've had the best

    Margaritaville (with Jimmy Buffett)

    (Jimmy Buffett)

    Nibblin' on sponge cake
    Watchin' the sun bake
    All of those tourists covered in oil
    Strummin' my six string
    On my front porch swing
    Smell those shrimp
    Hey, they're beginning to boil

    Wasted away again in Margaritaville
    Searchin; for my lost shaker of salt
    Some people claim, that there's a woman to blame
    But I know it's nobody's fault

    I don't know the reason
    Stayed here all season
    Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
    But it's a real beauty
    A Mexican cutie
    How it got here I haven't a clue

    Wasted away again in Margaritaville
    Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    Now I think, must be Buffett's fault

    I blew out my flip-flop
    Stepped on a pop-top
    Broke my leg twice
    I had to limp on back home
    But there's booze in the blender
    And soon it will render
    That frozen concoction that helps me hang on, hang on

    Wasted away again in Margaritaville
    Searching for my last shaker of salt
    Some people claim, that there's a woman to blame
    But I know, this is all Alan's fault

    Yes, and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    But I know, it's our own damn faults
