1. A Satisfied Mind

How many times have, you heard someone say

If I had his money, I could do things my way

But little they know, that it's so hard to find

One rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind

Money can't buy back, your youth when you're old

Or a friend when you're lonesome, or a love that's grown cold

The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times

Compared to the man, with a satisfied mind

When my life has ended, and my time has run out

My friends and my loved ones, I'll leave there's no doubt

But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time

I'll leave this old world, with a satisfied mind

How many times have, you heard someone say

If I had his money, I could do things my way

But little they know, that it's so hard to find

One rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind

One rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind

2. Fool For Love

Yes she broke my heart again (fool for love)

That's the way it's always been (fool for love)

It's a cryin' game, if you play long enough

It's a beautiful pain

When you're a fool, for love

Fool, for love

I tell myself that I don't care (fool for love)

But I keep hopin', she'll be there (fool for love)

It's a cryin' game, if you play long enough

You're slowly going insane

When you're a fool, for love

Fool, for love

(Fool for love)

(Fool for love)

Fool, for love

Always thought I was so smart (fool for love)

Started thinkin' with my heart (fool for love)

It's a cryin' game, if you play long enough

Tears will fall down like rain

When you're a fool, for love

Fool, for love

Fool, for love

Fool, for love

3. If There Ain’t There Ought’a Be

Well, I hear there’s a place somewhere down south,

Where you don’t need a hook to catch a small mouth.

No rod, no reel, no bait, no doubt:

Just whistle from the bank and they all walk out.

And they say there’s a town not far from here,

You can trade your debt for gas and beer.

No boss, no rent, no sweat, no cares:

Where everybody is a millionaire.

If there ain’t there oughta be.

Just think of the endless possibilities.

A place where every day is Friday night,

With your arms wrapped up tight around me:

If there ain’t there oughta be.

And I hear there’s a book that you can buy,

That’ll paraphrase the meaning of life.

What’s love? Why me? Where’s God? How high?

Word for word, why women cry.

If there ain’t there oughta be.

Just think of the endless possibilities.

A place where every day is Friday night,

With your arms wrapped up tight around me:

If there ain’t there oughta be.

A place for me to make my dreams come true.

I wish. A wish upon a star will do.

A fully fledged, foolproof guarantee

If there ain’t there oughta be.

If there ain’t there oughta be.

Just think of the endless possibilities.

A place where every day is Friday night,

With your arms wrapped up tight around me:

Well, if there ain’t there oughta be.

Well, if there ain’t there oughta be.

4. Here I Am

Dreamed aboutcha last night baby

Well you were lookin' for your man

And my heart said I had to tell you

Baby here I am

And I don't look much like Prince Charming

With Mississippi on my hands

But if you want someone to hold you

Baby here I am

You know no one will love you better

No one can move you like I can

I ain't afraid to say forever

So if you want a man

I mean a man, well baby here I am

And you know no one will love you better

No one can move you like I can

I ain't afraid to say forever

So if you want a man

I mean a man

If you want a man

Baby here I am

Baby here I am

I dreamed aboutcha last night baby

5. Sundown In Nashville

The sign says "Welcome to Nashville"

From whatever road you've been down

It seems like the first of the milestones

For here is the city, the town

It's a quaint, old mystical city

Where legends and idols have stood

It's a place, where dreams come to harbor

A country boy's Hollywood

But it's lonely at sundown in Nashville

That's when beaten souls start to weep

Each evening at sundown in Nashville

They sweep broken dreams off the street

You'll walk, down 16th to Broadway

Into a world of heartache and pain

Where hillbilly honky tonk angels

Cry out, from the dark side of fame

You'll find, some discarded love songs

And tear stains all over the ground

In a city where dreams get shattered

And swept to the outskirts of town

But it's lonely at sundown in Nashville

That's when beaten souls start to weep

Each evening at sundown in Nashville

They sweep, broken dreams off the street

They sweep, broken dreams off the street

6. By George

She was the finest lookin' woman, that I've ever seen

Looked like she stepped right off the cover of a glamour magazine

I've never seen a girl like that, in this country town

The facts are black and white when she threw her arms around me

I went ......... crazy

We danced the hoochie-coochie, the tide was rollin' in

I was drownin' in a sea of romance

Then she popped the question in the back seat of my car

"If I let you love me would you let me call you, George"

I said, "Baby, (baby), baby, (baby), baby, (baby)

Well, you can call me George Jetson, call me George Jones

I'll be your Georgie-Porgie, all night long

How was I to know what I was in for

I had it rockin' and a rollin' for a while, by George

By, by, by, by George

We bought a blue refrigerator, satellite and DVDs

A cozy little couch and Motorola TV

She loved to watch those pretty boys with California style

Like a jealous Mickey Rooney, George Clooney drove her wild

And I went ....... crazy

Well she started growin' distant, I felt her discontent

I couldn't make her happy with what I bought or spent

Her heart grew as cold as the air in the Norge

On which she left a note that read, "Bye George"

And I said, "Baby, (baby), baby, (baby), baby, (baby)" yeah

She called me George Jetson, she called me George Jones

I was her Georgie-Porgie, now she's gone

How was I to know what I was in for

I had it rockin' and a rollin' for a while, by George

By, by, by, by, by

By, by, by, by, George

7. Farmer’s Blues

Who'll buy my wheat, who'll buy my corn,

To feed my babies when their born?

The seeds and dirt, a prayer for rain, that I can use.

I work the land, I watched the sky,

I talk to God and wonder why,

But it's the only life I know, these Farmer's blues.

CHORUS

I see the seasons come and go, sending rain, fire and snow.

I'm at the mercy of it all, this life I choose.

Sometimes I hang my head and cry, when

That evening train goes by,

Wish it could take me far away, these Farmer's blues.

The tractor's broke, the fence is down,

Put own my suit and go to town.

And ask for a loan, that I know well, they might refuse.

But back at home, still by my side,

The one I love with worried eyes,

Waits for me, to love away, these Farmer's blues.

8. Wishful Thinkin’

Wishful thinkin', wishful thinkin'

Only dreams that don't come true

When that evenin' sun goes sinkin'

Wishful thinkin', where are you

A little voice inside convinced me

Made me think she'd turn around

But the deck was stacked against me

By the time that deal went down

That deal went down

Wishful thinkin', wishful thinkin'

Only dreams that don't come true

When that evenin' sun goes sinkin'

Wishful thinkin', where are you

Lord, I wish I would have listened

Listened to my second mind

But those sweet lips I was kissin'

Must have struck my reason blind

My reason blind

Wishful thinkin', wishful thinkin'

Only dreams that don't come true

When that evenin' sun goes sinkin'

Wishful thinkin', where are you

Where are you

Where are you

Honey, where are you

(Wishful thinkin')

(Wishful thinkin')

(Wishful thinkin')

(Wishful thinkin')

9. If You Want Me Around

I'd go lookin' for you, if you wanted me to

If you wanted me around

And I'd go anywhere, as long as you were there

If you wanted me around

If you needed me, well baby there I'd be

You know just where I can be found

I'd be there with you, if you asked me to

If you wanted me around

If you needed me, well baby there I'd be

You know just where I can be found

I'd do all that I could, yeah, you know I would

If you wanted me around

If you wanted me around

If you wanted me around

10. Too Much Month (At The End Of The Money)

I paid the bank note, the car note, an' yes, I paid the 'phone bill too.

An' then I turned around an' I found that the house note's due.

Well, I'd love to take you out like I said I would, honey,

But there's too much month at the end of the money.

Well, I got a little favour I wanna ask of you, my love,

Why don't you find that hole in my pocket an' sew it up?

Yeah, I thought I'd saved some but, you know, it's funny:

There's too much month at the end of the money.

All gone, oh, heaven only knows.

All gone, oh, where on earth it goes,

But it sure goes.

Well, sometimes I think it blows away.

I went down to the bank this mornin', 'bout half past nine.

Well, I was lookin' for a little somethin' in the credit line.

But the man said: "Look, what we got here, sonny:

"There's too much month at the end of the money."

I'd love to take you out like I said I would, honey,

But there's too much month at the end of the money.

Too much month at the end of the money.

12. Walls of a Prison

I walked through the big yard, to feel the warm sunshine

A ninety-nine year man, stepped over to me

He offered a smoke, and said as I rolled it

"Tomorrow I'm goin', to break out and go free"

"They feed us by sunlight, they watch us by spotlight

But I know a way that a man can go free

Down under my cell, I'm diggin' a tunnel

The walls of a prison can never hold me"

I told him that, I'd have no part of his scheming

My time would be up, one year from today

His eyes blazed with fire, and he looked right through me

Bitter, but broken, again he did say

"They feed us by sunlight, they watch us by spotlight

But I know a way that a man can go free

Down under my cell, I'm diggin' a tunnel

The walls of a prison can never hold me"

Next morning at breakfast, the old man was missing

Then we all heard the rifles high up on the wall

He'd gone through the tunnel, just like he had promised

And they said he was crying, when they saw him fall

They feed us by sunlight, they watch us by spotlight

But I know a way that a man can go free

Down under my cell, I'm diggin' a tunnel

The walls of a prison can never hold me
