Got you on my mind, nobody but you Got you on my mind, no one else will do Never could be, no never I'd find Another for me, Got you on my mind Got you on my mind, whatever I do Got you on my mind, I keep thinking of you Often it seems you leave me behind With only my dreams, got you on my mind You're making me sad, leaving, it's true It makes me so glad, being with you Surely you see, could you be so blind What's happened to me, Got you on my mind Got you on my mind, nobody but you Got you on my mind, no one else will do No never could be, no never I'd find Another for me, got you on my mind You're making me sad, leaving, it's true It makes me so glad, being with you Surely you see, could you be so blind What's happened to me, Got you on my mind.

Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills Where the mist settles in the valley And corn grows on cold limestone Come down to the door of my home Come down to the door of my home Head up over the Smokies up the blue highway to me Tobacco barns and bluegrass rolls up 273 Come up now and come alone Come down to the door of my home Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills Where the mist settles in the valley And corn grows on cold limestone Come down to the door of my home The wind is warm and so am I, I'm waiting for you dear In the pines you'd be mine if only you'd come here Come up now and come alone Come down to the door of my home Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills Where the mist settles in the valley And corn grows on cold limestone Come down to the door of my home

He visits, and drives the long hours to his home I call him to tell him that he is not alone Though I'm travelin round, and I, I gotta go I call him to tell him that he is not alone We rarely see face to face, and then not eye to eye But for when we're arm in arm I won't say goodbye Though I'm miles away and I won't say where I'm going I call him to tell him that he is not alone No he's not alone, he's the one who holds my heart I'm sorry I make him worry, but I got to play my part He clocks his hours with friends and family Maybe the only one alone, is me. He wants to take me to be his one and only bride I can't spend my lifetime settled down, inside His eyes hold the sweetest love I've known So I call him to tell him that he is not alone No he's not alone, he's the one who holds my heart I'm sorry I make him worry, but I've got to play my part He clocks his hours with friends and family Maybe the only one alone, is me. He clocks his hours with friends and family Maybe the only one alone, is me.

Weathering 04:16
The weather makes me think of you I'm falling in love with the rain Looking out the windowpane Thinking of the storm that came With you Once I was running through a desert No shade, worn out shoes The sun pours its heat, I'm cracked and I'm beat But I'm on the move But nothing comes on like weathering Weathering will roll you around Rocks ain't so steady, and before you're ready Time will wear down a stone The air is coming on thick now White sky turns to gray Storm clouds they gather, pushing right at me and The wind blows my dust away But nothing comes on like weathering Weathering will roll you around Rocks ain't so steady, before you're ready Time will wear down a stone Raindrops, they come on fast now Blue lines crack above Fat drops they fall, washing us all With love Nothing comes on like weathering Weathering will roll you around Rocks ain't so steady, before you're ready Time will wear down a stone The weather makes me think of you I'm falling in love with the rain.

5 Below (free) 04:38
5 below This is how it is done You walk then you run they say they say this is how it will be before you, it’s me they say they say Oh what a storm racing down from the sky We’re almost home but it’s covered in ice Ice on the window it’s cold in my skin Deep in my bones I can feel it I feel it, and I know What it is to be 5 below This is how it is done We have never won they say they say this is how it will be life of misery they say they say The tunnel is gone when there’s light in your eyes, The window’s defrosting we clear off the ice I’m quitting shivering one at a time If I stop dancing I’ll feel it I feel it, and I know What it is to be 5 below

We had wandered in the shadow of the pines The moon looked down on you and me And a darkness stole across the summer sky And a shadow came between my love and me Oh, darling, come love me as before Come back to leave me nevermore At that spot I'm sad and lonesome And the sun no longer shines Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines Oh, you went away and left me and my tears I could not hide You went away and not a word was said While my throbbing heart was breaking underneath its load of pride And the pine trees sobbed in pity o'er my head Oh, darling, come love me as before Come back to leave me nevermore At that spot I'm sad and lonesome And the sun no longer shines Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines All our future is o'er shadowed by the darkness of despair And across life's path the sun no longer shines Oh, I'd give this whole world gladly once again to meet you there And reunite in the shadow of the pines Oh, darling, come love me as before Come back to leave me nevermore At that spot I'm sad and lonesome And the sun no longer shines Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines

I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote I'm not gonna tell you what it said What's rolling around in my head I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin Oh, how i feel This pain is so real I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail Put on some old southern blues Gonna dance around in my shoes I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did I'm putting on those southern blues Gonna dance around in my shoes Cause I'm so lonely living with you I'd rather be living alone Mmm mmm mmm mmm

The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes The moon and stars were the gifts you gave To the dark and the endless nights, my love, To the dark and the endless nights. The first time ever I kissed your mouth I felt the earth move in my hands Like the trembling heart of a captive bird That was there at my command The first time ever I lay with you I felt your heart beat so close to mine And I knew that our joy, it would fill the earth It would last till the end of time, my love It would last, till the end of time, my love It would last, till the end of time The first time ever I saw your face, your face, your face, your face

Sugarbabe 03:27
Ain't got no use for the little red rocking chair Got no sugar baby now Got no honey baby now Laid me in the shade, gave him every dime I made Got no sugar baby now Got no honey baby now Who'll rock that cradle, and who'll sing that song Who'll rock the cradle when IÕm gone Got no sugar baby now I'll rock that cradle, and I'll sing that song I'll rock the cradle when youÕre gone Got no sugar baby now It's all I can do, and it's all I can say Can't make a living this a-way Got no sugar baby now Got no honey baby now Got no sugar baby now
