If My Heart Had Windows

Dallas Frazier

If my heart had windows
You'd see a heart full of love just for you

A tear may appear when I hold you near
But that's for the sweet things you do
If my heart had windows
You'd see a heart full of love just for you

By your side I will stay till we're old and gray
Reminiscing young moments we knew
If my heart had windows
You'd see a heart full of love just for you
[ piano ]
A thief couldn't steal the love that I feel
Heaven for me has come true
If my heart had windows
You'd see a heart full of love just for you

If my heart had windows
You'd see a heart full of love just for you

Between My House And Town

Sanger D. Shafer

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

You finally got the nerve to tell me
You no longer want me hangin' round
I knew all along it would a happen
So there's this a new place darlin' that I found

And it's just on the outskirts of somewhere
The only traffic is downward bound
It's alright to cry out loud cause I feel so far out
That the sun will go down between my house and town
[ guitar - steel ]
Please don't feel sorry darlin' cause you hurt me
Well I'll just make way for your your new man
I could feel this sad bad day a comin'
So there's this new place darlin' that I plan

And it's just on the outskirts of somewhere...
Yeah the sun will go down between my house and town

On Second Thought

Charlie Carter

© Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

I just lost the one in life that was my everything
Someone I took for granted cause she was here
Now what have I done to make her hate me so
But on second thought what have I done to make her care

I never treated her like she was somethin' special
Although my heart knows she really is
But she can't see how I feel if I don't show it
And on second thought I guess I never did
[ steel ]
I never treated her like she was somethin' special...
And on second thought I guess I never did

Possum Holler

Dallas Frazier

© Husky Music, BMI / Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possums in Possum Holler

As a young man I'd go a courtin'
With my sweetheart named Sally Blare
Down the mountain to Possum Holler
Accidentally I'd find her waitin' there

She'd tell her mama she's pickin' blossoms
By the moonlight so sweet and fair
And I'd tell daddy I'm huntin' possums
And take off grinnin' and slickin' down my hair

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possums in Possum Holler
[ guitar ]
Then one evening in Possum Holler
Sally's daddy stopped all my fun
And we got married in Possum Holler
Just me and Sally her daddy and his gun

Now when I see a possum hunter
Young and handsome and smellin' fair
Well I just lean back and bust out laughin'
Cause I know there ain't no possums there

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possums in Possum Holler
About possums in Possum Holler

Unwanted Babies

Earl Montgomery

© Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

How can there be peace around the world
When you hate your neighbor next door
He's done everything he can to prove he's a man
All except cut off his right hand

What makes you think you will sleep tonight
After callin' him names all day
Why take the time to read the Holy Book
When there's unwanted babies on the way

How can there be peace around the world
When you hold a loaded gun by your side
Just waiting for a chance so you can kill in self defense
Just because you don't like someone's comment

What makes you think the sun will shine again at dawn
But seldom think it'll be the judgement day
Can you see that heaven has a place just for you
When there's unwanted babies on the way

You want him to fight for your beautiful land
Then you won't give him one grain of sand
Except to throw over him when he's dead and gone
If you dog me he’ll mend the bone

Still you go to your church next Sunday morn
You'll stand up sing and preach and pray
But Mister you're the sinner who should be really born
When there's unwanted babies on the way

Say It's Not You

Dallas Frazier

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI / Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

Darling there's talk around town
Bout a girl who spreads love around
With soft lips and eyes crystal blue
Darling say it's not you

They say that she comes in alone
And stays till self respect is gone
Then each night she leaves with someone new
Darling say it's not you

At first what they said didn't hurt me
Until they mentioned her name
Then slowly the tears overtook me
Cause her name and yours is the same

Each night till the breaking of dawn
I'm praying that you're not the one
Tell me lies but say it's not true
Darling say it's not you
Darling say it's not you

Wrong Side Of The World

Alex Zanetis

© Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

I woke up on the wrong side of the world

Last night I went to sleep and thought the world was fine
The day had been a perfect day and you were mine
But somewhere between dusk and dawn the earth had tumbled and twirled
I woke up on the wrong side of the world

The sun has not arrived the moon is still out there
The seas refused to change the tide while you're not here
Cause somewhere between dusk and dawn the earth had tumbled and twirled
I woke up on the wrong side of the world

Cause you were gone my life was changed
Cause you were gone the earth rearranged

Tonight before I go to sleep I'll ask this prayer
Please turn the earth around so when I wake she's there
Cause somewhere between dusk and dawn the earth had tumbled and twirled
I woke up on the wrong side of the world
I woke up on the wrong side of the world

Stranger's Me

Dallas Frazier

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI / Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

There's a story spreading round bout a stranger in our town
And the people say he's weird as he can be
Big sun glasses a big black hat they all stare and say who's that
Up till now they still don't know the stranger's me

Oh I would die if they found out I'm the fool they laughed about
After all the times they warned me she would break my heart and leave
I've been living in disguise hiding from a shameful life
Up till now they still don't know the stranger's me
[ guitar ]
Changed the style of clothes I wear changed the way I comb my hair
Friends are pointin' fingers asking who is he
My old self ain't been the same since my baby brought me shame
Up till now they still don't know the stranger's me

Oh I will die if they found out I'm the fool they laughed about...
Up till now they still don't know the stranger's me

Your Angel Steps Out Of Heaven

Jack Ripley

© Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

You tell me you have married an angel
She's made heaven out of your home
You say there couldn't be rainbows without her
She's brought you happiness you've never known

But you may hate me for what I will tell you
But you'll thank me for setting you right
While you work to keep angel in heaven
Your angel steps out of heaven each night

Her heaven's not the same that you're living in
It's any place where there's music and some free drinks thrown in
So call her your angel I won't say you're not right
But your angel steps out of heaven each night
Your angel steps out of heaven each night
