My Baby Packed Up My Mind And Left Me

Dallas Frazier - Arthur Leo Owens

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

I didn't hear the engines of a jet-plane
I didn't hear the whistle of a train
I didn't hear the taxi driver knockin' on my door
I didn't hear her walkin' cross the floor
But my baby packed up my mind and then she left me

She knew when I woke up that I'd be lookin' for my mind
She knew she'd leave a crazy man behind
But my baby packed up my mind and then she left me
[ mandolin - fiddle ]
I never thought this big ole king size bed to find her gone
I never thought she'd leave here alone
I never saw the distance or the leavin' in her eyes
I never thought my babe would wave goodbye
But my baby packed up my mind and then she left me

She knew when I woke up that I'd be lookin' for my mind...
Yes my baby packed up my mind and then she left me

I'm Finally Over You

Dallas Frazier - Sanger D. Shafer

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

Sweetheart it's been several days now since they found me on the street
But since then an old friend Lonely Five and it's got me back on my feet
This morning I'll just drink enough to knock me out by noon
Yes I was down for a little while but I'm finally over you

The sun outside is much too bright that's why I'm wearing these shades
And the reason I haven't shaved it's because the drugstore ran out of blades
So if you hear that I'm not makin' it don't believe it because it's not true
Yes I was down for a little while but I'm finally over you
Yes I was down for a little while but I'm finally over you

Where Is My Castle

Dallas Frazier

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

More than once I've cried because impatience let me down
I could see the gold before the gold was found
And everytime I've trusted love to lead me by the hand
It circled back and left me where I stand

Where is my castle where is my destiny
How much longer will I have to dream
Where is my sunshine where is my valley
Where is the love that's meant for me
[ steel - guitar ]
Next time I cross over that old bridge I'm gonna stay
I don't care if the river washes it away
Cause I'm not gonna take one step until the day I find
A girl with a faithful heart and a made-up mind

Where is my castle where is my destiny...

Where is my sunshine where is my valley
Where is the love that's meant for me

White Fences And Evergreen Trees

Dallas Frazier

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

If I could paint pictures I'd paint one for you
A picture portraying the love we once knew
Then a tear would reveal the sorrow in me
As I painted white fences and evergreen trees

Love can be greater than the mountains or seas
But it's only as great as two hearts believe
Faith blew away in yesterdays breeze
And we lost our white fences and evergreen trees
[ guitar ]
I've walked through a valley and cried all night long
In search for the reason why true love goes wrong
With a prayer on my lips the earth touching my knees
I've prayed for white fences and evergreen trees

Love can be greater than the mountains or seas...

Touching Home

Dallas Frazier - Arthur Leo Owens

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

(Today I can feel it touching home)

Today pain became a real life's hurtin' thing
And the choir of loneliness sang me a song
Now I know what it means to lose a lifetime dream
Cause today I can feel it touching home

No longer do I wonder why men have lost their minds
Or wind up in a jungle of flashing neon signs
Now I know what it means to lose a lifetime dream
Cause today I can feel it touching home
[ piano ]
No longer do I wonder why men have lost their minds
Or wind up in a jungle of flashing neon signs
Now I know just how long a man can last when love is gone
Cause today I can feel it touching home
Cause today I can feel it touching home

Big Mable Murphy

Dallas Frazier

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

Way back in '29 somewhere in Coffeeville
Was a honky tonk named Big Mable Murphy's
She had a sweetheart named Little Melvin
And hair would fly between them every night

They say Little Melvin got wild on bathtub gin
Cause it made him grow to almost twice his size
He'd try to take over and sass Big Mable
And her great big fist would black Little Melvin's eyes

Big Mable Murphy she loved Little Melvin
But he never did learn to do just what she said
Cause poor Little Melvin woke up every morning
With two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head

Then late one rainy night Scarface Mouzziola
Came in and started shoving folks around
Big Mable Murphy was back in the kitchen
So just for fun he shot Little Melvin down

Early next morning down by the river
Scarface Mouzziola was found real short of breath
They say that Scarface had died from a whoopin'
He had two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head

Big Mable Murphy's place raved on until she died
And they say sometimes a tear would fill her eye
And then she'd whisper Lord I'd give anything
If once more I could black Little Melvin's eyes

Got My Mind On The Border Of Mexico

Dallas Frazier

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

I just left San Antonio heading down to the town of Laredo
Got my mind on the border of Mexico
Gonna stop for a tank off to go at a place called a Purple Sombrero
Got my mind on the border of Mexico

Drinking tequila with young senoritas
And listening to the mariaches play pretty songs
The lips of a woman will kiss me good mornin'
The same lips that promised to love me till dawn
I can tell you if you don't know what a peso can do for a gringo
Got my mind on the border of Mexico
[ guitar ]
Drinking tequila with young senoritas...
[ guitar ]
Got my mind on the border of Mexico

She Wakes Me With A Kiss Every Morning

Dallas Frazier - Arthur Leo Owens

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

(She wakes me with a kiss every morning)
And she loves me to sleep every night

How lucky I am to have searched for and found
The beginning of the rest of my life
She wakes me with a kiss every morning
And she loves me to sleep every night

Her goal for each day is to find some new way
To please me and keep me satisfied
She wakes me with a kiss every morning
And she loves me to sleep every night

Her love is too strong to let me be wrong
Even when we both know I'm to blame
And when trouble and hard times are raining
Her love soaks up my share of rain

She never complains and I've never seen
Distance in her baby blue eyes
She wakes me with a kiss every morning
And she loves me to sleep every night

Yes she wakes me with a kiss every morning
And she loves me to sleep every night

Ode To A Child Of The Wind

Dallas Frazier - Arthur Leo Owens

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

My daddy was the dusty road my mama was the wind
I been told that travelin' was the nickname of my kin
My brothers are the mountains my sisters are the seas
I don't take to settlin' down and they don't take to me

I thank you for the sunshine that kept me warm today
I thank you for the tenderness that almost made me stay
I could learn to love you until the end of time
If settlin' down was stronger than the leavin' on my mind

My daddy was the dusty road my mama was the wind...
[ guitar - steel ]
More than once today my heart was tempted by your touch
You would be the one if I should choose to fall in love
I don't want to leave you with promises and dreams
They would only slip away from you to fall on me

My daddy was the dusty road my mama was the wind...
My daddy was the dusty road my mama was the wind...

Where Did They Go Lord

Dallas Frazier - Arthur Leo Owens

© Blue Crest Music, BMI

The words of her promise the flame of her faith
And the love that would never drift away
Where did they go Lord where did they go
Somehow forever slipped out of my hands
And my dreams ran away with the wind
Where did they go Lord where did they go

Sometimes I wish I had left her for another
But Lord she just walked off all alone
The heart that's within me isn't bitter it's just empty
And bewildered because her love has gone

Oh the passion I trusted the truth that I leaned on
And the hope that would forever keep me strong
I cry out my questions but the answers are gone
Where did they go Lord where did they go
Oh where did they go Lord where did they go
