It's Hard To Be Humble

Mac Davis

© Song Painter Music, BMI

Back a few months ago I was headlinin' in a great big night club
And they put me up a couple of days early I came in a couple days early
And they put me up in what the call the star suite
Now here I am headliner in one of the biggest nightclubs in the country
And I wake up at eight o'clock in the morning in this star suite all by myself
Yeah that's what I said aww
But I did what I've always done I had to tear myself up
I picked up my guitar I sat down and I wrote me a little song
Now this is how it feels to be alone at the top of the hill and tryin' to figure out why

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror cause I get better lookin' each day
To know me is to love me I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble but I'm doin' the best that I can

I used to have a girlfriend but I guess she just couldn't compete
With all of these love starved women who keep cowering at my feet
Well I probably could find me another but I guess they're all in awe of me
Who cares I never get lonesome cause I treasure my own company

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way...

I guess you could say I'm a loner a cowboy outlaw tough and proud
Well I could have lots of friends if I wanted but then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd
Some folks say that I'm egotistical hell I don't even know what that means
I guess it has something to do with the way that I fill out my skintight blue jeans

Oh come on where's all the kickers in here
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way...

One more time what are we doin'
We're doin' the best that we can
Give yourselves a hand yeehaw

Greatest Gift Of All

Mac Davis

© Song Painter Music, BMI

This ain't no easy world to live in it's hard enough just gettin' by
Sometimes it seems the sun ain't gonna shine again
But you and me ain't gonna give in cause we can make it if we try
Just let me take your hand and you take mine my friend

Cause I got you (baby I got you) you got me (baby you got me)
And baby that's everything in life we'll ever need
We've got each other (baby I got you) that's more than enough (baby you got me)
We've got the greatest gift of all baby (baby baby)
We've got love we got love

When you're feeling cold and lonely you know you've got a full time friend
I'll be standing by to help you brave the storm
Just come and let your tears fall on me soon I'll have you smiling again
I'll wrap you up in love and keep you safe and warm

I got you (baby I got you) and you got me (baby you got me)...
We got love

Let's Keep It That Way

Curly Putman - Rafe VanHoy

© Tree Publ, BMI

There's no need to lie without me half tryin' I could love you
It shows in your eyes that you feel the same way I do
But wherever I go my conscience goes what more can I say
It's only desire not yet a fire let's keep it that way

Cause I don't wanna have to tell her a lie when I get back home
And it would tear apart her fairy tale world if I did her wrong
Lyin' to her would hurt me more than leavin' you this way
So before we forget we're not cheaters yet let's keep it that way

Let's finish this wine cause I'm not thinking too clearly tonight
The touch of your hand makes it hard for a man to tell wrong from right
She waits at home she's there all alone and though I'd like to stay
Before I give in let's call it just friends and keep it that way

And I don't wanna have to tell him a lie when I get back home...
And I don't wanna have to tell him a lie when I get back home...

It Was Time

Cynthia Weil - Barry Mann

© Mann And Weil Songs, BMI

I never dreamed that it would be so easy
To see you finally walk on out the door
But I'm tired of tryin' to make you smile livin' every day on tryin'
Tired of always bein' the one who loves a little more

It was time for you to leave me it was time it was time
When you really get down to the bottom line
We never had a poetry we just tried to make it right
It was time that we were over it was time

Now I know the emptiness I'm feelin'
Is more of what we lost than what we had
Cause watchin' something dyin' slow can hurt much more than let it go
Even with the loneliness you know I'm almost there

It was time for you to leave me it was time it was time...

I guess I was so right for you and you were meant for me
And it doesn't pay the serious soul just for company
It's better be lonely

It was time for you to leave me it was time it was time...

Gravel On The Ground

Bob Morrison - Debbie Hupp

© Music City Music, ASCAP

If our lives could lie before us like a straight and narrow highway
So that we could see forever long before we took the ride
We would never look to heaven make a wish or climb a mountain
Cause we'd always know the answer what's on the other side

But life ain't no easy freeway just some gravel on the ground
And you pay for every mile you go and spread some dust around
But we all have destinations and the dust will settle down
This life ain't no easy freeway just some gravel on the ground

So let's walk the road together who knows what we'll find tomorrow
Maybe good times maybe sorrow will be waitin' round the bend
Given time two hearts discover what they're feelin' for each other
At the best we'll end up lovers at the least we'll make a friend

But life ain't no easy freeway just some gravel on the ground...

But life ain't no easy freeway just some gravel on the ground...

But life ain't no easy freeway just some gravel on the ground...

Tequila Shiela

Shel Silverstein - Mac Davis

© Evil Eye Music, BMI

Well hand me down that bottle of tequila Sheila
Take off that red satin dress
I crossed the border and I beat the dealer
For damn near every ounce of gold in Juarez

Oh let's drink a toast to Pancho Villa Shiela
Tonight I need a lover and a friend
So hand me down that bottle of tequila Sheila
Then lay down and love me again

Pass me the salt and the lemon
Bend down and blow out the light
I never hand much luck with women
But Sheila I feel lucky tonight

So hand me down that bottle of tequila Sheila
Help me with my britches and my boots
Then run my achin' back with tender feelin' Shiela
We need the one the same but tonight we're in cahoose

So let's make some shadows on the ceiling Shiela
I been too long ridin' in the wind
So hand me down that bottle of tequila Sheila
Then lay down and love me again

Pass me the salt and the lemon...

So let's do it one time for the dealer Sheila
Once more for the good times way back when
And hand me down that bottle of tequila Sheila
And lay down and love me again
Lay down and love me again
Lay down and love me again

I Will Always Love You

Mac Davis - Michael Miller

© Songpainter Music, BMI

The first time I saw you you filled up my eyes
Blue jeans and satin with your hair piled up high
And there was something so touching in the way that you smiled
A lusty young woman with the eyes of a child

And I felt it the first time I looked in your eyes
The first time you touched me I knew
That no matter what happens the rest my life
I know I will always love you
I know I will always love you
[ piano ]
And now as we lie here so satisfied
Spent from our passion and trembling inside
I get a sweet peaceful feeling a warm afterglow
And I can't keep from crying cause I love you so

I felt it the first time I looked in your eyes...
I felt it the first time I looked in your eyes...

I Wanta Wake Up With You

Ben Peters

© Ben Peters Music, BMI

I wanna wake up with you
I wanna be there when you open your eye
I want you to be the first thing that I see
I wanna wake up with you

I wanna lay by your side
I wanna feel every beat of your heart
And throughout the night I wanna hold you tight
I wanna wake up with you

All the love inside me has been sleeping
Waitin' till the right one came along
You can share the love that I've been keeping
You can put the music to my song

I wanna wake up with you
I wanna reach out and know that you're there
I want you to be the first thing that I see
I wanna wake up with you

I wanna lay by your side...
