Taker

Kris Kristofferson - Shel Silverstein

© Evil Eye Music, BMI

He's a giver he'll give her
The kind of attention that she's never known
He's a helper he'll help her
To open the doors that she can't on her own
He's a lover and he'll love her
In ways that she's never been loved before
He's a getter he'll get her
By gettin' her into the world she's been hungerin' for

He's a charmer he'll charm her
With money and manners that I never learned
He's a leader he'll lead her
Across pretty bridges he's plannin' to burn
He's a talker he'll talk her
Right off of her feet but he won't talk for long
Cause he's a doer and he'll do her
The way that I'd never damned if he won't do her wrong

He's a taker he'll take her
To places and make her
Fly higher than she's ever dared to
He'll take his time before takin' advantage
Takin' her easy and slow
And after he's taken the body and soul
She gives him he'll take her for granted
Take off and leave her
Taken all of her pride when he goes

He's a taker he'll take her...

You'll Look For Me

Waylon Jennings

© Waylon Jennings Music, BMI

There'll come a time girl you'll look for me
In each horizon in each face you see
You'll look for love like love used to be
There'll come a time girl you'll look for me

Look all around you if you have the time
Look at me once more if you can
You once said you loved me now you've changed your mind
But you'll change your mind again

There'll come a time girl you'll look for me...
There'll come a time girl you'll look for me...

Mississippi Woman

Red Lane

© Tree Publ, BMI

The reflection of the trees are cut by the bow of my pirogue
And spattered by the paddle of my eager hand
That Mississippi woman is a wavin' over yonder
Wavin' her lantern for her Louisiana man

How I love that Mississippi woman
How I love that Mississippi girl
How I love that Mississippi woman
But her heart does not belong to me

The lantern light and moonbeams are dancin' patterns on the water
She doesn't seem to realize I've learned her secret plans
My jealous mind is thinkin' as I paddle through the sleepin' alligators
She don't know I know about her Louisiana man

How I love that Mississippi woman...

The reflection of the trees are cut by the bow of my pirogue
And splattered by the paddle of my shaky hand
The silence from behind me is alive with the splashin' alligators
And the lantern light is blinkin' on the bottom in the sand

How I love that Mississippi woman...
How I love that Mississippi woman...

Loving Her Was Easier

Kris Kristofferson

© Combine Music, BMI

I have seen the mornin' burnin' golden on the mountain in the skies
Achin' with the feelin' of the freedom of an eagle when she flies
Turnin' on the world the way she smiled upon my soul as I lay dying
Healin' as the colors in the sunshine and the shadows of her eyes

Wakin' in the mornin' to the feelin' of her fingers on my skin
Wiping out the traces of the people and the places that I've been
Teachin' me that yesterday was somethin' that I never thought of trying
Talkin' of tomorrow and the money love and time we have to spend
Lovin' her was easier than anything I'll ever do again

Comin' close together with a feelin' that I've never known before in my time
She ain't ashamed to be a woman or afraid to be a friend
I don't know the answers to the easy way she's opened every door to my mind
But dreamin' was as easy as believin' it was never gonna end
Lovin' her was easier than anything I'll ever do again
Mhmm mhm mhm...

Six White Horses

Bobby Bond

© Tree Publ, BMI

Come here and look through the window oh Marie
Open up the shatters tell me watch you see
Was that his knock I heard at the door
Or is it six white horses comin' down the road

Come here and touch me and say that it's all right
You know that to my eyes the days are as the nights
Read again the letter that tells me where he's gone
To hell with the fighting I want my son home

I taught him to fish and I taught him to be strong
Taught him that killing any man is wrong
But tomorrow in battle I'd run to where he stood
If the help of a blind man do any good

Last night I went to this room for a while
Touched all the things that he used as a child
I rock the cradle where he used to lay
I'd found these tin soldiers and threw them away

Come here and look through the window oh Marie
Open up the shutters tell me watch you see
Was that his knock that I heard at the door
Or is it six white horses comin' up the road

(Don't Let The Sun Set On You In) Tulsa

Wayne C. Thompson

© Earl Barton Music, BMI

When I left Tulsa Jamie was an innocent young lady
God only knows why she gave herself to a guy like you
She called me cryin' said she's gonna have your baby
You just turned your back on her like all cowards do
I swore I'd get you for what you're puttin' her through
And the only reason I ain't got you
Jamie cried and begged me not to
She still loves you for some reason

Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
If the sun goes down on you
If you're still here you're goin' down too
Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
[ guitar ]
Jamie is the only thing I ever really cared for
She don't deserve this kind of shame
She's carryin' the child that you're to blame for
You just laughed and said there ain't no way it's gonna get your name
I swore I'd get you for what you're puttin' her through
And the only reason I ain't got you
Jamie cried and begged me not to
But I ain't through with you yet

Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
Better not let the sun set on you in Tulsa

Casey's Last Ride

Kris Kristofferson

© Combine Music, BMI

Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walkin' down
The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
Followin' their footsteps through the neon darkened corridors
Of silent desperation never speaking to a soul

The poison air he's breathing has the dirty smell of dyin'
Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Of the clicking of the turn stops and the rattle of his chains

Oh she said Casey it's been so long since I've seen you
Here she said just a kiss to make a body smile
See she said I've put on new stocking just to please you
Lord she said Casey can you only stay a while
[ guitar ]
Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden Crown
For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bones
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
Who reach for anything they can to keep from goin' home

Standin' in the corner Casey drinks his final bitter
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passin' by
Then he stumbles as he's leavin' and he wonders if the reason
Is the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye

Oh she said I suppose you seldom think about me
Now she said now that you've a family of your own
Still she said it's so blessed good to feel your body
Lord she said Casey it's a shame to be alone
Hmm hmm hmm...

(I'd Be A) Legend In My Time

Don Gibson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I'd be a legend a living legend in my time

If they gave gold statues
For tears and regrets
I'd be a legend a living legend in my time

But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken over love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend a living in my time
[ guitar ]
But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame...
If loneliness meant world acclaim...

Sunday Morning Coming Down

Kris Kristofferson

© Combine Music, BMI

Well I woke up Sunday mornin'
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast
Wasn't bad so I had one more for desert
Then I fumbled through my closet
For my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
And I shaved my face and combed my hair
Stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

Well I'd smoke my brain the night before
With cigarettes and songs that I'd been pickin'
But I lit my first and watched the small kid
Cussin' the can that he was kickin'
Then I crossed the empty street and caught
The Sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken
And it took me back to somethin'
That I'd lost somehow somewhere along the way

On the Sunday mornin' sidewalk wishin' Lord that I was stoned
Cause there's something in a Sunday makes a body feel alone
And there's nothin' sure of dying half as lonesome as the sound
On the sleepin' city sidewalk and Sunday morning coming down

In the park I saw a daddy with the laughin' little girl that he was swingin'
Then I stopped beside a Sunday school listened to the songs tha they were singin'
I headed back for home and somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
And it echoed through the canyons like the disappearing dreams of yesterday

On the Sunday mornin' sidewalk wishin' Lord that I was stoned...

Grey Eyes You Know

Harlan Howard

© Tree Publ, BMI

That cold north wind is blowin' grey eyes you know
The years are quickly goin' grey eyes you know
And the good life I promised you so long ago
Is dead but for the dreamin' grey eyes you know

We never had much money grey eyes you know
More rainy days than sunny grey eyes you know
And life has been a long hard row to hoe
But you stuck right by me smilin' grey eyes you know

Hard times took the blue from your eyes
Leaving them grey as the winter skies

We've had our talk now I must walk away
Leave you here beneath this mound of clay
And I feel so empty as I turn to go
For my heart lies there beside you grey eyes you know
My heart lies there beside you grey eyes you know
