    Little Bitty

    (Tom T. Hall)

    Have a little love on a little honeymoon
    You got a little dish and you got a little spoon
    A little bitty house and a little bitty yard
    Little bitty dog and a little bitty car

    Well, it's alright to be little bitty
    Little hometown or a big old city
    Might as well share, might as well smile
    Life goes on for a little bitty while

    A little bitty baby in a little bitty gown
    It'll grow up in a little bitty town
    Big yellow bus and little bitty books
    It all started with a little bitty look

    Chorus

    You know you got a job and a little bitty check
    Six pack of beer and television set
    Little bitty world goes around and around
    Little bit of silence and a little bit of sound

    A good ole boy and a pretty little girl
    Start all over in a little bitty world
    A little bitty plan and a little bitty dream
    It's all part of a little bitty scheme

    Chorus

    Everything I Love

    (Harley Allen, Carson Chamberlain)

    Coffee keeps me up and I can't sleep
    And when I drink too much then I can't eat
    Losing you has led me to believe
    Everything I love is killin’ me

    Everything I love is killing me
    Cigarettes, Jack Daniels and caffeine
    And that's the way you're turning out to be
    Everything I love, gonna have to give up
    'Cause everything I love is killin’ me

    I guess I made a big mistake
    Thinkin' you're a habit I can break
    Well, I'm addicted to you now I see
    Everything I love is killin’ me

    Chorus
    Oh everything I love gonna have to give up
    'Cause everything I love is killin’ me

    Buicks To The Moon

    (Alan Jackson, Jim McBride)

    How long will I love you
    I don't really know
    I'd like to think forever
    Is how far we could go so let me paint a picture
    Of how it's gonna be
    The day you don't mean everything to me

    When a nickel's worth a dollar
    And gold ain't worth a dime
    When they build a ship
    On waters that will take you back in time
    When the stars have all been counted
    And I stop lovin' you
    Honey they'll be driving
    Buicks to the moon

    Now you don't have to worry
    About what comes to pass
    This old world may wear out
    But my love's gonna last
    If they ever build that highway to the moon
    I'll just fond somethin else to promise you

    Chorus

    Oh when the stars have all been counted
    And I stop lovin' you
    Honey they'll be drivin'
    Buicks to the moon

    Between The Devil And Me

    (Harley Allen, Carson Chamberlain)

    This world can take you by the hand
    And tempt the soul of any man
    But you can choose your path
    There's two roads you can take
    One way is right and one is wrong
    The flesh is weak but love is strong
    And she's all I see
    Between the devil and me

    The gates of hell swing open
    Wide invitin' me to stop inside
    I'll be your friend he calls
    Again, I know it's him
    The flames are spreadin’ everywhere
    But through the smoke
    I see her there
    She's all I see
    Between the devil and me

    I hold her in my arms tonight
    So safe and warm I close my eyes
    And a cool breeze blows
    'Cross our bodies in the dark
    Outside her reach is my concern
    Somewhere I know a fire burns
    And she's all I see
    Between the devil and me

    Chrorus

    The gates of hell swing open
    Wide invitin' me to step inside
    She's all I see
    Between the devil and me

    There Goes

    (Alan Jackson)

    There you were standin' in the shadows
    Well I just looked where
    I don't see
    I'm still pretendin’ I don't need you
    I won't let you know you're killin’ me

    Like some big black widow spider
    You know just how to catch your prey
    I'm actin’ like it doesn't matter
    And you sneak up from
    Behind and whisper my name

    There goes your paralyzin’ eyes
    There goes your tantalizin’ smile
    There goes my act of playin’ it cool
    And there go the words
    I meant to say
    There go the games
    I wanted to play
    There goes my heart fallin’ for you

    Well I think you're playin’ with me darlin’
    You like to see what you can do
    Well I should be fishin’ for Blue Marlin
    Instead of bein’ hooked again by you

    Chorus

    Yeah there goes your paralyzin’ eyes
    There goes your tantalizin’ smile
    There goes my heart fallin’ for you
    There goes my heart fallin’ for you

    House With No Curtains

    (Alan Jackson, Jim McBride)

    We still wear our rings
    We still say I love you
    We both play the part
    Oh so well
    But everyone knows
    It's just a sad show
    And we're only foolin’ ourselves

    It's like living in a house with no curtains
    The whole world can see what's inside
    You can turn out the lights in a house with no curtains
    But the heartache has nowhere to hide

    We could pack up and leave in different directions
    If we just had somewhere to go
    We just keep on pretending
    Afraid of the ending
    Admitting what everyone knows

    Chorus

    You can turn out the lights
    In a house with no curtains
    But the heartache has nowhere to hide

    Who's Cheatn' Who

    (Jerry Hayes)

    Everywhere you look you can write a book
    On the trouble of a woman and a man
    But you can not impose you can't stick your nose
    Into something that you don't understand

    But still you wonder
    Who's cheatin' who, who's being true
    Who don't even care anymore
    It makes you wonder
    Who's doing right with someone tonight
    And who's car is parked next door

    I thought I knew her well I really couldn't tell
    That she had another lover on her mind
    You see it felt so right when she held me tight
    How could I be so blind

    Chorus

    A heart is on the line each and every time
    Love is stolen in the shadows of the night
    Though it's wrong all along it keeps going on
    As long as you keep in out of sight

    Chorus

    Walk On The Rocks

    (John E. Swaim)

    After seventeen years behind bars
    And lookin’ back on his mistakes
    He sat down and poured out his heart
    When his son came to see him today

    He spoke with a voice that trembled
    Tryin’ to hold back the tears
    He said I ain't been much of a father
    Son I wish I could turn back the years

    ‘Cause life's like a river
    And the water is deep
    Cross it with care
    Or you'll end up like me
    Let my mistakes
    Be your steppin’ stones
    And walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

    He said son stay away from the bottle
    Watch out for the company you keep
    And hold on to those you love
    Cause is a man's greatest need

    The right way may not be easy
    The right road ain't always straight
    Son, please don't follow the footsteps
    That lead to where I am today

    Chorus
    Walk on the rocks that I stumbled on

    Must've Had A Ball

    (Alan Jackson)

    Well I must've had a ball last night
    I can't recall what even started out fight
    I must've drank away my blues
    'Cause I don't remember losing you
    Well I must've done the town up right
    'Cause this morning my hats just a little too tight
    There ain't no way of knowing
    But all the signs are showing
    I must've had a ball last night

    Well I woke up this morning underneath my bed
    And someone's in the kitchen sink
    With cowboy boots on and nothing else at all
    Except my hat turned backward on her head

    Chorus

    Well my picture's on the table, someone tore it right in two
    Well who'd do such a crazy thing
    Someone took your suitcase and your little car
    And I hate it 'cause the tires are new

    Chorus

    Well I must've done the town up right
    'Cause this morning my hats just a little too tight
    There ain't no way of knowing
    But all the signs are showing
    I must've had a ball last night
    Well, there ain't way knowing
    But all the signs are showing
    I must've had a ball last night

    It's Time You Learned About Good-Bye

    Well I've been on the wrong side
    Of the front door too often
    Watched you slam it in my face
    Well I may have learned the hard way
    I'm not a soft one
    Tonight I'm standin’ in your place

    ‘Cause you taught me a lot about leavin’
    Won't even have to try
    So here's your lesson in heartache and grievin’
    And a chance for you to cry
    ‘Cause it's time you learned about good-bye

    I've stood behind you
    And I've laid beside you
    But I won't do that anymore
    ‘Cause I'm tired of bein’
    Just here when you want me
    Tonight I'm walkin’ out that door

    Chorus

    It's time you learned about good-bye
