Fancy Free Lyrics

 

Elvira



Elvira, Elvira, my heart's on fire for Elvira.


Eyes that look like heaven lips like cherry wine
That girl can sure enough make my little light shine
I get a funny feelin' up and down my spine
'Cause I know that my Elvira's mine
So Iím singin'


Elvira, Elvira, my heart's on fire for Elvira
Giddy Up, Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow
Giddy Up, Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow
High-ho Silver away


Tonight I'm gonna meet her at the Hungry House Cafe
I'm gonna give her all the love I can, yes I am
She's gonna jump and holler
íCause Iíve saved up my last two dollars
We're gonna search and find that preacher man
And Iím singiní

 

 

Somewhere In The Night



Somewhere in the night
When you're feelin' safe and warm
Don't be surprised to find
Itís a calm before the storm
Somewhere in the night
It's gonna hit like lightnin'
It's gonna be so frightnin'
When you find your love is gone


Somewhere in the night
There's a lady lost and lonely
She used to be your one and only
But that was yesterday
Somewhere in the night
There's a new romance unfoldin'
Some lucky stranger's holdin'
What you threw away


You think you'll do alright without her (without her)
You haven't begun to think about her (about her)
But somewhere in the night
It's gonna be over (over) over (over) over (over)


Somewhere in the night
There's a memory right behind you
You can bet it's gonna find you
Wonderin' what went wrong
Somewhere in the night
It's gonna hit like lightnin'
It's gonna be so frightnin'
When you find your love is gone

 

 

She's Gone To L.A. Again



Sheís gone to L.A. again
Thatís lost angel to me
This time she wonít be coming home
Thatís what the note said she left
Under the key
It was good while it lasted
But itís gone


She always dreamed of the lifestyle
In Southern California
She said that sheíd live there some day
And I hope that she finds
What sheís looking for
Sheís found a place
In my heart sheíll always stay


Sheís a hard loving woman
But sheís looking for more than love
She needs a life of her own
She has to spread her wings
And fly her way
I still love her
Though sheís left me here alone

 

 

When I'm With You



I know itís late to be calling
But I just canít get to sleep
Iíve got something heavy on my mind
And Iím afraid it just wonít keep


You always understand my feelings
And you love the hurt away
Thereís not a single doubt left in my mind
With you is where I need to stay


When Iím with you
I find myself believing
In your love, just enough
To make my dream come true
When Iím with you
I wonder where dreams stop and you begin
Time and again
The dream comes true for me when Iím with you


My cup is full and running over
With sweet love that came from you
What Iím sayingís coming from my heart
Iíll be forever loving you


The dream comes true for me when Iím with you

 

 

Another Dream Just Came True



I was lonely and downhearted
The night your loving took me by surprise
But now I know that my life started
The moment I first looked into your eyes


Another dream just came true
Another dream just came true
Right out of the blue
Another dream just came true
Another dream just came true
Another dream just came true
Lying next to you
Another dream just came true


Never thought that I would find anyone
Who could be so much a lover and a friend
But now I know Iíve found my own special one
And I wonít ever have to look again

 

 

I'm Settin' Fancy Free



Iím settin' fancy free because she wants to go
She's tired of loving me, she told me so
I guess she don't know just how much she means to me
But along with all my dreams Iím setting fancy free


Yes Iím settin' fancy free even though I love her still
She'd be no good to me if I held her against her will
Even though that girl, she's the best part of my world
Along with all my dreams Iím settin' fancy free


Oh Lord you just don't know how it hurts to say goodbye
She did her best to stay, I can't say she did not try
I just hope the road she takes leads back to me
So along with all my dreams Iím settin' fancy free

 

 

Dream Of Me



My life on the road girl
Has always been hard on me and you
Every time we say goodbye
It gets harder to do
But when Iím far away somewhere alone
And the missing you starts
All Iíve got to do is picture you
And I can feel you in my heart


So dream of me
Every time you get to feelin' blue
Dream of me
And Iíll be dreaming of you


Iíve been a lot of places
Thereís just no place like home
And Iím always on my way back to you
Every minute that Iím gone
So when you get to feelin' lonely
Just remember we wonít always be apart
Close your eyes and think of me
And you can feel me in your heart

 

 

When Love Calls You



When you cross my mind
I hear the echo and I feel the night
I held your hand and said Iím so in love with you
But you didnít love me too
You said love makes you sad
Well thereís something you should know
In the end itís really all you have to show
So donít turn away


When love calls you
Show your hearts true
Open up and let her in
Then the lesson will begin
Sheíll unfold you
Sheíll control you
But the times youíll have to show
Are the best youíll ever know
I hope love calls you


When you cross my heart
Thereís still a tenderness I feel
Itís a feeling that I try to share with you
But you didnít want to
Now some would say I lost
But knowing love was worth the cost
And if she would call my name again today
Iíd have to say

 

 

How Long Has It Been



Hey my old lover and friend
How long has it been
Since we laid together
You know how I'd love
To see you again
How long has it been


Another sunset and though youíre far away
Itís hard to forget the good days we spent
I canít help myself when from time to time
The memories swell, thereís no one to tell


Now I know the chances are we gave it up too soon
When morning turned to afternoon
And soon the sun had set the good times slipped away
So I thought Iíd call just to say


Days are short, nights are long
My dreams are all the same
Take me back to the days when we were young
Take me back


I miss you, I miss you, I miss you
How long has it been

 

 

I Would Crawl All The Way (To The River)

 

A long time ago there was a Man
Who laid down His life on the line
He claimed He could make the lame walk again
And give back the sight to the blind
Now some people loved Him
Some people wanted to take Him and put Him away
Well I wasnít there to see what he did
But if He were right here today


I would crawl all the way to the river
I would crawl all the way to the sea
Just to watch Him walk on the water
And lay His loving hands on me


A carpenter by trade but the kingdom that He made
Was made without hammer and nails
It stands like a rock through the ages of time
It was built with the Love that never fails
Iíve read in the Good Book that some day Heís coming
And some say it ainít far away
But the day that He stands on the banks of the Jordan
This sinner will be on his way
