I've Got A Tiger By The Tail

Harlan Howard - Buck Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
Well I'm a losin' weight and I'm turnin' mighty pale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

Well I thought the day I met you you were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans
Now the pace we're livin' takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see...
[ guitar ]
Well every night you drag me where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see...

Trouble And Me

Harlan Howard

© Wilderness Music, BMI

Trouble and me we're old buddies you see
I've stuck by him and he's a stickin' by me
Well goodbye honey be thankful you're free
And that you're not stuck with ol' trouble and me

Trouble and me we keep a bummin' around
I'm picking 'em up and laying 'em down
Well officer we're only passin' through town
Lookin' for somethin' that we'd never found

Trouble and me we're old buddies you see...
[ guitar - steel ]
Well once I thought that trouble had found someone else
I came close to findin' a place for myself
About that time he came back with a frown
And trouble and me had to find a new town

Trouble and me we're old buddies you see...

Let The Sad Times Roll On

Buck Owens - Red Simpson

© Blue Book Music, BMI

Put a quarter in the jukebox and let it play
That same sad song that's been playin' all day
You know the one where his darling is gone
So pour the red wine play the jukebox and let the sad times roll on

Let the sad times roll on cause she's gone she's gone
So pour the red wine play the jukebox and let the sad times roll on
[ steel ]
I watch as the record spins around
As he tells of a love that's let him down
He's singing my life story in his song
So pour the red wine play the jukebox and let the sad times roll on

Let the sad times roll on cause she's gone she's gone...

Wham Bam

Buck Owens - Don Rich - Bonnie Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

[ Don Rich ]

Wham bam thank you ma'm I'll be on my way
Thank you but no thank you not today
First thing is matrimony next thing is alimony
Wham bam thank you ma'm I'll be on my way

I'm just too young to get married you see
There's too many places that I'd rather be
There's a lotta other fishes in the deep blue sea
So wham bam thank you ma'm that's not for me

Wham bam thank you ma'm I'll be on my way...
[ guitar ]
I'm not the kinda guy to buy a ring
I'm afraid of weddin' bells and rice and things
I'm just too restless I'll never settle down
So wham bam thank you ma'm I'll see you around

Wham bam thank you ma'm I'll be on my way...

If You Fall Out Of Love With Me

Buck Owens - Bonnie Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

If you fall out of love with me don't let me know
If someone else is on your mind don't let it show
For I'd rather have your lie I could never stand goodbye
If you fall out of love with me don't let me know

If you find somebody new don't let me know
If your love for me is through don't let it show
If I ask you please don't say darlin' turn and walk away
If you fall out of love with me don't let me know
[ steel ]
If your love for me is gone don't let me know
If someone else is in your dreams don't let it show
Close your eyes so I won't see for I don't want sympathy
If you fall out of love with me don't let me know

Fallin' For You

Buck Owens - Don Rich - Bonnie Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

Oh the bells started ringing and the birds started singing
And the clock on the corner struck two
Thunder started crashing and the lightning started flashing
And I knew I was fallin' for you

I was standin' on the corner when I knew I's a goner
The first time you came into view
Well my knees started knocking and my head started rocking
And I knew I was fallin' for you

Oh the bells started ringing and the birds started singing...
[ guitar ]
Well you scared me half to death I could hardly catch a breath
Your smile made my heart go boom
I was almost paralyzed when I looked into your eyes
And I knew I was fallin' for you

Oh the bells started ringing and the birds started singing...

Band Keeps Playin' On

Red Simpson

© Tree Publ, BMI

You walked in with me but you walked out with someone else
And left me sitting here alone all by myself
I thought you were over him but I was wrong
My world stopped but the band keeps playin' on

They just keep playin' they don't notice you were gone
You walked right out on me while they played our favorite song
And before you reached the door my teardrops hit the floor
My world stopped but the band keeps playin' on
[ steel - fiddle ]
Well you said you'd forgotten him and no more did you care
But when we walked in your eyes lit up as you saw him sitting there
Well he asked you to dance and just like that you were gone
And my world stopped but the band keeps playin' on

They just keep playin' they don't notice you were gone...

Streets Of Laredo

Buck Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

[ Doyle Holly ]

As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
As I walked out in Laredo one day
I spied a young cowboy all wrapped in white linen
Wrapped up in white linen as cold as the clay

So beat the drum slowly play the fife lowly
Play the dead march as they carry me on
Take me to the green valley lay the sod o'er me
I'm shot in the chest and I'm dyin' today
[ guitar ]
Let sixteen gamblers carry my coffin
Let sixteen cowboys sing me a song
Take me to the green valley lay the sod o'er me
For I'm a young cowboy and I know I've done wrong

So beat the drum slowly play the fife lowly...

Crying Time

Buck Owens

© Blue Book Music, BMI

Oh it's crying time again you're gonna leave me
I can see that faraway look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'
That it won't be long before it's crying time

Now they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder
And the tears are only rain to make love grow
But my love for you could never grow no stronger
If I live to be a hundred years old

Oh it's crying time again you're gonna leave me...
[ steel ]
Now you say that you found someone you love better
That's the way it's happened every time before
And as sure as sun comes up tomorrow
Crying time will start when you walk out the door

Oh it's crying time again you're gonna leave me...

Memphis Tennessee

Chuck Berry

© Arc Music, BMI

Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party try to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number but I know who placed the call
Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me operator get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the southside high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge
[ guitar ]
The last time I saw Marie she was a waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes
We were torn apart because her mom would not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Help me operator more than this I cannot add
Only that I miss her so and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old information please
Help to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
