Straight From The Heart

Freddie Hart

© Tree Publishing, BMI

You're asking me straight from the shoulder
We promised to be honest from the strat
You're asking me straight from the shoulder
And I'll answer you right straight from the heart

No I don't think we're gonna make it
Our flower of love is dying on the vine
I'm so afraid the weeds are gonna take it
But just maybe we can pull them out in time

You're asking me straight from the shoulder...
[ steel ]
Neither one of us can point the finger
Whatever you're to blame for I am too
But if love can conquer all we're out of danger
You still live me and I just worship you

You're asking me straight from the shoulder...

Together Again

Buck Owens

© Central Songs, BMI

(We're together again) oh my teardrops stopped falling
(The long lonely nights) are now at an end
(The key to my heart) you hold in your hand
And nothing else matters we're together again
[ steel - strings ]
Together again our grey skies are gone
And you're back in my arms right where you belong
The love that we knew is living again
Oh nothing else matters we're together again

You're Next To Nothing

Freddie Hart

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

(Now you're next to nothing when you could be next to her)

Well there's a mirror take a good look at yourself
But look closely cause there's not much of you left
Now you are something you're not half the man you were
Now you're next to nothing when you could be next to her

For she loved you to her you were a king
But you gave nothing and she gave everything
Then you betrayed her yes you stretched her love too far
Now you're next to nothing when you could be next to her

So let's face it you've had it now life's so hopeless case
Why you're not fit to kill how does it thrill tears rolling down your face
But you see clear now though your vision's just a blur
Now you're next to nothing when you could be next to her

So let's face it you've had it...

From A Jack To A King

Ned Miller

© Jamie Music, BMI

From a jack to a king from loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an Ace and I won the Queen and walked away with your heart
From a jack to a king with no regrets I stackled the cards last night
Oh Lady Luck played her hand just right you made me king of your heart

Oh for just a little while I thought that I might lose the game
Oh but just in time I saw the twinkle in your eye
From a jack to a king from loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an Ace and I won the Queen and walked away with your heart

Oh for just a little while I thought...

Taste Of Love

Freddie Hart - Ginger Hart

© Tree Publishing, BMI

Not enough to keep me warm and feelin' satisfied
Not enough to leave me with a particle of pride
Just enough to build me up for a big downfall
A taste of love is worse than none at all

Just enough to let me yearn for love you'll never give
Just enough to let me know just how it feels to live
But not enough that I'll forget how it feels to crawl
A taste of love is worse than none at all

A taste of love can only take you right up to the door
A taste of love can only tease and make you beg for more more more
Just enough to make sure that I don't survive the fall
A taste of love is worse than none at all

They're Bringing Johnny Home Today

Joe Babcock

© Ensign Music, BMI

Oh the thousandth boy has fallen Johnny Hullet was his name
Now his country was not perfect oh but he loved it just the same
Now we'll all go out to meet him he's a hero in our town
But he had to die to prove it to the folks that held him down

(Oh they're bringing Johnny home today he'll be laid away to rest)
With a flag across his coffin and a medal on his chest
(He's going back to fields of cotton though he tried to get away)
Oh but we feel a little different bringing Johnny home today

He left to see the world and get away from this ole town
Guess he thought the color of his skin just sorta held him down
He went into the Army yes they said they'd take him in
But that big harm bullet did not mind the color of his skin

(Oh they're bringing Johnny home today...
(Oh they're bringing Johnny home today...

Queen Of Hillbilly Heaven

Freddie Hart

© Laredo Publications, BMI

(Queen of Hillbilly Heaven sing it pretty Patsy Cline)

To hear Patsy sing was to love her
Cause every word came straight from the heart
And she treated everyone just like a neighbor
In everybody's life she played a part
She sacrificed a lot to sing in heaven
A husband two little children left behind
And we know that they miss you just awful
Cause heaven knows we do Patsy Cline

(She's in Hillbilly Heaven and she was your friend and mine
Queen of Hillbilly Heaven sing it pretty Patsy Cline)

There's a lotta pretty girls in country music
And everyone of them they sing so fine
But one stands out all by her lonesome
Cause no one can sing like Patsy Cline
Ask anyone who lives out in the country
Or the big city folks that you meet
Who sang that pretty song I Fall To Pieces
I'll bet everyone of them will proudly speak

(She's in Hillbilly Heaven and she was your friend and mine
Queen of Hillbilly Heaven sing it pretty Patsy Cline)
We miss you darlin' sing it pretty Patsy Cline

Rosalita

Al Dexter

© Peer International, BMI

Rosalita my little rose of the rancho
You won my heart down by the Rio
Dry your eyes dear don't be blue Juanita
I'll come back to you my little Rosalita

Each night I tell the moon on high and all its glory
Of you and I and days gone by and love's sweet story
Rosalita another day is dawning for you I'm longing Rosalita
[ strings ]
Juanita I need you my own
(Love words were spoken two hearts were broken)
And it calls us to drift far apart
Rosalita another day is dawning for you I'm longing Rosalita

Waiting For A Train

Jimmie Rodgers

© Peer International, BMI

All around the water tank waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman just to give him a line of talk
He said Mister if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk
I haven't got a nickel no not one penny can I show
He said get off get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door

He put me off in Texas the state I dearly love
With the wide open spaces all around me the moon and the stars up above
But nobody seems to want me or to give me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco I'm going back to Dixie Land
My pocketbook is so empty and my heart is filled with pain
Cause I'm a thousand miles away from home waitin' for a train

On The Sidewalks Of Nashville

Cy Coben

© Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP

Oh there are stars on the sidewalks of Nashville
They're the stars of tomorrow and today
There's a kid with his dreams and guitar who's just hopin' for a break
Rubbin' elbows with a star who once had that same heartache

There are tears on the sidewalks of Nashville
Shed by those that fame and fortune failed to see
For each one that gives up and leaves town
Why there's a new face makin' the rounds
On the sidewalks of Nashville Tennessee

Now I know you won't believe this but I was once a star myself
Was on the Grand Ole Opry sold millions of records
And my name was on everyone's list
But then I started slippin' and I turned to the bottle for my confidence
And now well now I'm just a has-been playin' joints for my drinks and tips

Oh there's gold on the sidewalks of Nashville
And it's there for those that hit it big you see
For each new career that starts why there's a trail of broken hearts
On the sidewalks of Nashville Tennessee

Lovin' Kind Of Woman

Freddie Hart

© Laredo Publications, BMI

A Look a here I got a woman make my blood run boilin' hot
To hold her close to me can tie my heartstrings in a knot
Cause I love her she's so fine
And this a lovin' kind of woman drives me right out of my mind

I'm gonna do my best to keep her and I got a lovin' plan
I'm gonna make believe she's a redhot stove I'm her fryin' pan
Cause I love her she's so fine
And this a lovin' kind of woman drives me right out of my mind

If I tried to find another I wouldn't know where to begin
Cause she's that pot of gold you find right at the rainbow's end
And I love her she's so fine
And this a lovin' kind of woman drives me right out of my mind

Oh speaking of lovin' man boy you ain't tellin' me a thing
I meant every word of it honey every single word
