It's So Easy

Buddy Holly - Norman Petty

© Wren Music, BMI

It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love

People tell me love's for fools
Here I go breakin' all the rules

Seems so easy yeah
So doggone easy oh oh oh
It seems so easy yeah
Where you're concerned my heart can learn oh

It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love

Look into your heart and see
What your love book has set aside for me

It seems so easy yeah...

It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love

It seems so easy oh...

It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love

Carmelita

Warren Zevon

© Warner-Tamerlane Publ, BMI

I hear mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes they glow in the dark
And I'm there with you in Ensenada
And I'm here in Echo Park

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well I pawned my Smith and Wesson
And I went to meet my dad
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
At the Pioneer Chicken stand

Carmelita hold me tighter...

Well I'm sittin' here playing solitaire
With my pearl handled deck
The county won't gimme no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check

Carmelita hold me tighter...
Carmelita hold me tighter...

Simple Man Simple Dream

John D. Souther

© WB Music, ASCAP

What if I fall in love with you
Just like normal people do
Well maybe I'd kill you or maybe I'd be true

When I go down to get a job sometime
It seems people can read my mind
And make money disappear while they're talking sweet and kind

Well in some ways I'm like a child
You never seemed to know it
And if a kind word ever crossed your mind
You never tried to show it
[ steel ]
Well in some ways I'm like a child...

When people don't know what you mean
They may laugh at you and call you green
They'll say your words are stupid and your plans are only schemes
Truth is simple but seldom ever seen
Let nothing come between simple man simple dream

Sorrow Lives Here

Eric Kaz

© Embassy Music, BMI

If you see a friend and he tries to say
A girl we once knew is losing her way
It's true I may be blue
I've seen the best years of life go through
A man that I love and another I need
Both men have helped make the sad life I lead

Sorrow lives here in my heart it haunts me when I sleep
I can't keep the thought of you from my dreams
Everything seems to spin all around but I can't see
Whether it happens with or without me

Remember how perfume my gown and silk gloves
Had teased your heart so and brought out your love it's done
Night's breeze has blown a chill up my spine
The world was mine then haughty and high
To bide my time till all of my hopes just wish you were mine

Sorrow lives here in my heart it haunts me when I sleep...

I Never Will Marry

A.P. Carter

© Peer Int, BMI

They say that love's a gentle thing
But it's only brought me pain
For the only man I ever loved
Has gone on the morning train

I never will marry I'll be no man's wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life

Well the train pulled out the whistle blew
With a long and a lonesome moan
He's gone he's gone like the morning dew
And left me all alone

I never will marry I'll be no man's wife...

Well there's many a change in the winter wind
And a change in the cloud's design
There's many a change in a young man's heart
But never a change in mine

I never will marry I'll be no man's wife...

Blue Bayou

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I feel so bad I've got a worried mind I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou
Saving nickels saving dimes working till the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day come what may to Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat if I could only see
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes how happy I'd be

Gonna see my baby again gonna be with some of my friends
Maybe I feel better again on Blue Bayou
Saving nickels saving dimes working till the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day come what may to Blue Bayou...

Oh that boy of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide
Oh some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside
Well I'll never be blue my dreams come true on Blue Bayou

Poor Poor Pitiful Me

Warren Zevon

© Warner-Tamerlane Publ, BMI

Well I lay my head on the railroad track
Waitin' on the Double E
But the train don't run now here no more
Poor poor pitiful me

Poor poor pitiful me poor poor pitiful me
All these boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me

Well I met a man out in Hollywood now I ain't namin' names
But he really worked me over good just like Jesse James

Yes he really worked me over good he was a credit to his gender
Put me through some changes Lord sorta like a waring blender

Poor poor pitiful me poor poor pitiful me...

Well I met a boy in the Vieux-Carres down in Yokohama
Picked me up and he threw me down sayin' please don't hurt me mama

Poor poor pitiful me poor poor pitiful me...

Poor poor poor me poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor poor me poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor poor me poor poor pitiful me

Maybe I'm Right

Robert Wachtel

© Leadsheet Land Music, ASCAP

Maybe he's right maybe I'm wrong
Maybe what I'm saying is the way it should be
Nobody knows when the truth goes by
But everyone tells me that he's happy

Maybe he's gone and found some love
I wanna see it for myself
Everyone says just to let him alone
But I can't even sleep no more it worries me so

Why why

Maybe I'm right maybe he's wrong
And maybe what he's saying is the way it should be
Somebody tried to explain it to me
But they couldn't tell me if he's happy
And I just wanna know if he's still happy

Tumbling Dice

Mick Jagger - Keith Richards

© Colgems Music, ASCAP

People try to rape me always think I'm crazy
Make me burn the candle right down
Baby I can't stay
I don't need your jewels in my crown

Now all you women are lowdown gamblers
Cheating like I don't know how
Baby I go crazy
There's fever in the bunkhouse now

Well this lowdown bitchin' got my poor feet a itchin'
Can't you see the deuce is still wild
Baby get it straight you got to roll me
And call me the tumbling dice

Always in a hurry never stop to worry
Can't see the time passin' by
Honey got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines

Well hey now baby I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime
Baby get it straight you got to roll me
Call me the tumbling dice

I said my my my I'm the lone crapshooter
Playin' the field every night
Baby get it straight you got to roll me
Call me the tumbling dice

You got to roll me babe you got to roll me
Babe you got to roll me oh oh oh you got to roll me
Woo hoo hoo you got to roll me whoa babe you got to roll me
Baby babe you got to roll me

I Ride An Old Paint

Traditional

© Normal Music, BMI

I ride an old paint I lead an old Dan
I'm gone to Montana to throw the hooley ann
They feed in the coulees they water in the draw
Their tails are all matted their backs're all raw

Ride around ride around real slow
Where the fiery and snuffy are rarin' to go

Old Willie Brown had a daughter and a son
One went to Denver and the other went wrong
His wife she died in a poolroom fight
And still he keeps singin' from morning till night

Ride around ride around real slow...

Well when I die take my saddle from the wall
Put it on my pony and lead him from the stall
Throw my bones on his back turn our faces to the west
And we'll ride the prairie that we like the best

Ride around ride around real slow...
Ride around ride around real slow...
