Deliver Lyrics

 

Ozark Mountain Jubilee



I hear a rooster crowin'
It's a frosty mornin'
I can almost see the sign
Goin' so fast I can't stop
I'm just a stones throw from Little Rock
Headin' for that Missouri line


Don't need a map to get there
You can get there from anywhere
When you're goin' in your head
I can see the arms out reachin'
Just like the day I was leavin'
It's been oh so many years


Let me get on the Frisco Silver Dollar Line
Take my time
And see all I can see
Fiddler rosin up your bow
We'll have our own
Ozark Mountain Jubilee


If I can't be a favorite son
I'll be the prodigal one
'Cause I've been gone too long
Oh how the years have flown by
Oh how I realize
How much of me is gone

 

 

When You Get To The Heart



Girl come sit beside me
You know how you excite me
Tonight lets lock the world outside our door
Sometimes it gets so crazy
And Lord knows itís not easy
To find the time to love any more
Things that we go after
They really just donít matter
Itís not the way we started out
All we had was each other
And babe thatís what itís all about


When you break it all down
And you strip it apart
Thereís just one thing that matters at all
When you get to the heart
When the smoke clears away
And we see where we are
Weíll see all that really matters is love
When you get to the heart


So baby letís get down to it
All we gotta do is do it
You know that we can work it out
All weíve got is each other
And babe thatís what itís all about

 

 

Alice Is In Wonderland



Alice is in wonderland
I wonder who sheís thinking of
I wonder if another man
Is after my fairy tale love
Is she really walking out on me
Or just playing out a fantasy
Will she still know who I am
When Alice leaves her wonderland


Someone is in her eyes
I can hear it in her lies
Thereís something I just donít know
Is this the end of my rainbow
Her mind is so far away
And she doesnít have that much to say
I really hate to think itís because
Sheís found another wizard of Oz


When will she wake up and realize
Things arenít always what they seem
And after she faces reality
Will I still be in her dreams


Will I still be her man
When Alice leaves her wonderland

 

 

Ain't No Cure For The Rock And Roll



I was still a boy when it happened to me
I started shaking uncontrollably
Doctor came and he shook his head
And Mama cried when the doctor said
Ah you can see the look on the poor boyís face
Well heís been took with a terminal case
Ainít a prayer no there ainít no hope
You can hear the beat on my stethoscope


Well itís rock and roll, rock and roll
Canít be stopped itís out of control
Itís got his body now itís after his soul
Ainít no cure for the rock and roll


It wasnít very long until the dread disease
Spread through the very best families
Folks had heard bout the devilís curse
But they all agreed this was a whole lot worse
The tragedy of my neighborhood
Was my best friend Johnny B Good
And both our girl friends caught it too
Talking 'bout Elvira and B-Bobbie Sue


Walking the street with a friend of mine
Shuffling my feet just to keep in time
From out of nowhere came a guitar lick
Nothing fancy but it did the trick
I said I turned into a little dancing fool
I thank my friend for keeping his cool
He said give him room and heíll be just fine
Heís been this way since 1959

 

 

In The Pines



In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shines
And you shiver when the cold wind blows


Little girl, little girl what have I done
That made you grieve me so
You caused me to weep
You caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my home


The longest train I ever saw
Went down that Georgia Line
The engine passed at six oíclock
And the cab went by at nine


The longest train I ever saw
Was nineteen coaches long
The only girl I ever loved
Is on that train and gone

 

 

I Guess It Never Hurts To Hurt Sometimes



Sometimes I feel the wave
Of a past break in my mind
And I know it's gone for good
And it makes me want to cry
Is this all we get to keep
As the years go rollin' by
Just a memory
For all the days gone by


Oh you're always in my heart
And you're often on my mind
I will never let it die
Just as long as I'm alive
Sometimes it makes me sad
That we never said goodbye
Well I guess it never hurts
To hurt sometimes


You try and hold on to the moment
But time won't let you stay
But for every step you take
You lose something on the way
You can't look forward to tomorrow
And still hold on to yesterday
Oh I hope that you can hear
When I say

 

 

Through My Eyes



Iíve heard you talking on the telephone
Complaining to your friends
Of things like looking older
And how you wish you were young again
From finger nails not long enough
To favorite dresses too small in size
But oh if only darling
You could see you through my eyes


Through my eyes youíd see why
Iím loving you the way that I do
Through my eyes youíd realize
They donít come any better than you
Thereíd be no talk of changes, rearranges
Youíd be more than satisfied
If only you could see you through my eyes


Iíve seen you standing at the mirror
And turn yourself around
Looking past the beauty
Finding ways to put yourself down
Those special things I love about you
You forever criticize
But oh if only darling
You could see you through my eyes

 

 

Break My Mind



Baby, oh baby
Tell the man at the ticket stand that you've changed your mind
Let me run on out and tell the cab to keep his meter flying
íCause if you say goodbye to me
Babe you're gonna break my mind


Break my mind, break my mind, break my mind
No I just can't stand to hear the big jet engines whine
Break my mind, break my mind, break my mind
If you leave you're gonna leave a babbling fool behind


Baby, oh baby
Let me take your suitcase off of the scale in time
Tell the man that you suddenly developed a thing about flying
'Cause if you say goodbye to me
Babe you're gonna break my mind

 

 

Still Holding On



When I was young I was sure I never could grow old
I was gonna climb mountains and sail the seas, go searching for gold
But those years come creeping in and my journey gets so long
I donít spring back like I used to
But Iím still holding on


Holding on to what I believe in be it right or wrong
Holding on to my dreams and my crazy schemes
Yes I'm still holding on


Thought Iíd found true love
I was sure it never could end
I was blinded by the light in her eye
I couldnít see 'round the bend
Then one night she said goodbye
I turned around she was gone
Shook my head and shed my tears
But Iím still holding on


Holding on to believin' that love is a good thing even though sheís gone
Holding on to my dreams and my crazy schemes
Yes I'm still holding on


Oh at night when the cold wind blows and my collar's pulled up high
Iím all alone in a God forsaken place wondering why
A man only does what he must do and the journey must go on
Brush myself off and laugh at the wind
'Cause Iím still holding on


Holding on to what I believe in even though itís wrong
Holding on to my dreams and my crazy schemes
Yes I'm still holding on


Holding on to what I believe in be it right, be it wrong
Holding on to my dreams and my crazy schemes
Yes I'm still holding on

 

 

Down Deep Inside



I know youíre scared
I see you runnin'
Afraid of love
You feel it comin'
Girl donít make that mistake
Iím telling you why
When you feel it deep inside
You know it ainít no lie


Down deep inside
Listen to your heartís beat
Down deep inside
Tellin' you the truth girl
Down deep inside
Feel the way your heart beats
Stirring up that fire in you
Down deep inside, down deep inside


So girl hang on
You can trust me
Thatís where my love
Will do you justice
You say your heartís
Been torn apart
So keep it to yourself
I can tell itís been too long
Since you let anyone else
