When it's good, it's good. What can I say?

Lyrics

Any old time you want to come around Any old time you want to pick me up or set me down Just give me a call I can be ready in a moment or two Why even wonder? Any time you have I want to spend with you Any old time Any old way you feel like letting go I can take you there real fast or we can go there slow Any old way Call me in the morning or the middle of the day Why even wonder? Any time you have I want to spend with you any old way Baby you should know I love you Even when you leave you leave me hungry for you Honey you can come and call me anytime you want to I do want to love you Any old time Any old thing you care to talk about You can come and whisper to me or we can shout Any old thing Any thing you want to say is what I want to hear Why even wonder? Come and sit beside me Tell me 'bout it dear Any old thing Baby you should know I love you Even when you leave you leave me hungry for you Honey you can come and call me anytime you want to I do want to love you Any old time

Story

This is about thinking about my sweetie while walking on the Trinity River trail in Fort Worth

Lyrics

Walking by the river Watching other people go their way Get my act together There's no need to try and call today Ladies in their lawnchairs Men are gathered talking round the car Food is nearly ready There's no need to wonder where you are Ch: Traffic and trains and the slow low rider Smell of the river in the hot Texas sun Just give me five more minutes with you, baby Your hacienda, hot Texas hon Driving down I10 Things are getting harder for us now It's all the places you've been I want to fit in but I don't know how Looking in the back seat Is there really room in front for me? I know what you wanted You wanted one and I got three Ch Stop off at the market I find everything I need but you I know that you're working I'll wait over here if you want me to Over on the sideline You're trading good with a senorita Twenty yards away from me Place for one at old Tecalote Bridge: I want to dance with you I want to smell the comida I want to ride with you I want it all to be easy Ch

Story

Needs no explanation. We all know how hard it is to get a real good man. No seriously, a wonderful poet by the name of B. F. Maiz once told me that 'love is easy'. I believe that. It's all the other stuff that's so hard. My worst nightmare is to no longer feel alive. . .know what I mean?

Lyrics

Well, you're everything I need That's what they say You're the one I need to please, Maybe someday Well, I'd like to be with you later sometime And I'll try to remember to get you on my mind I'd like to get all worked up over you Cause you're a real good man-that's what I ought to do Uh huh, oh yeah, uh huh But the other men I know keep me on the edge They build me up and leave me standing on a ledge Well I guess you need the bitter to really taste the sweet You think I'd know better but they're the men I meet I'd like to get all worked up over you Cause you're a real good man, that's what I ought to do Uh huh, oh yeah, uh huh Well the thing that really scares me What I don't want to do Is sit down to an empty plate Nothin' there to chew I want days I can remember Nights I can't forget Men who give me chills Men who make me sweat I'd like to get all worked up over you Cause you're a real good man That's what I ought to do Uh huh, oh yeah, uh huh

I love the strong silent type. . .but they're a challenge.

Lyrics

Honey don't, honey don't, honey don't Make this a bad thing Honey don't, honey don't, honey don't Push me away You don't have to whisper, You don't have to yell Just tell me something Silence is hell, oh it's hell Honey don't Honey do, honey do, honey do Say what you mean Honey do, honey do, honey do Mean what you say Noone will know, if you hold back But if you feel it you're on the right track Honey do Honey don't, honey don't, honey don't Don't let it rob you Honey don't, honey don't, honey don't Live in the past Hearts do get broken But time goes by Don't waste your days wondering why Honey don't Honey do, honey do, honey do Please tell me something Honey do, honey do, please won't you Even the wrong thing You keep me guessing Climbing the wall Don't leave me hanging Just let me fall Honey do

Story

I've taken some very lengthy road trips in my day. I love being on the road because I don't worry about anything when I'm driving. There's nothing like freedom.

Lyrics

Now I'm driving down a dusty road Gravel's flying 'neath this heavy load People from the past are calling me but I'm trying to be free See my babies as they sleep away They'll be happy when we're there today I hear their breathing and it comforts me I want them to be free Kind of like a locust tryin' to shed it's skin And you could be there too but you've got to begin Getting greener now on day two I'm not crying when I think of you My mind is filling with some other things Not just wedding rings See the mountains there on day three? There I'll find a road to carry me To a place where the water's cool Island in the sea Kind of like a locust tryin' to shed it's skin You could be there too, But you've got to begin

Story

This song is all about lousy timing!

Lyrics

I was wrong I was out of line Should have known This was not the time To tell you that I love you More than ever Try to find a way to win your heart To show you just how much I really need you I guess I should have left you in the dark You had gone to another town Had a new life with someone you'd found You thought you knew the ending of the story Thought you knew the way your life should be But I made you read a little further The part about a love for you and me I guess I should have held it back I should have kept it to myself That I was lonely for you Turn the page See what it will bring Not a heartache But a real good thing Leave the light on a little longer Open up your eyes a little more See if we can try to make it happen Starting right where we were before

Appearances aren't everything.

Lyrics

Stand by your side So terrified Should I leave or should I stay? It's scary either way Spotlight on you just makes me blind But if you say to we'll call it love Well it's love when you're angry Love when it hurts Love when it's going from bad to worse Love if you tell me to think of it that way Let's not say nothing Let's call it love You need the kids to make you look strong They can do no right You can do no wrong But if they're lonely, needy or sad Let's not say nothing Let's call it love Well it's love when you're angry Love when it hurts Love when its going from bad to worse Yeah it's love if you tell me to think of it that way Let's not say nothing Let's call it love The model couple does everything right And because you're the man there's never a fight If I start to wonder why it feels this way Let's not say nothing, let's call it love shhhhhhh

Story

This song came to me one day while I was vacuuming the couch. What can I say? Vacuuming couches is boring.

Lyrics

Oh, oh, oh I got a lonely, achin’ feeling in my heart I got a lonely, achin’ feeling in my heart And when I start to feel this way I can’t face another day I got a lonely, achin’ feeling in my heart Oh, oh, oh, oh I got a longing for your love in my soul I got a longing for your love in my soul Oh but now I know it’s true, I am never to have you I got a longing for your love in my soul Now I could travel round the world, to every corner From the ground up to the sky above I could taste all that this life has to offer But I’ll never match the sweetness of your love I got a burning love for you deep down inside me I got a burning love for you deep down inside Well I wish I’d never known just how much I’d feel alone I got a burning love for you down deep inside Oh, oh, oh, oh

You know the only person you'll probably always be with is yourself. Take care of her.

Lyrics

I don’t want to lose your love But it’s going to hurt too much to stay Look inside your heart Try to see beyond Tell me it’s okay Is it any wonder dear That the road was rocky all the way? I didn’t realize how hard it is to hide Tell me it’s okay We were both so foolish, dear Thinking all we needed was a plan Then I messed things up Looked inside my heart I had to take a stand There’s more to this than “him or me” There’s someone else I really want to know I think I’m the one I need to count on That’s why I have to go I want to think of how you feel Yes, it matters how you feel as well But when I think of you I find that’s all I do I soon dessert myself There’s more to this than “him or me” There’s someone else I really want to know I think I’m the one I need to count on That’s why I have to go

Story

One day a friend and I were having lunch and he was talking about all the problems he was having in a love relationship. Kept saying, "We have to work on it." I thought to myself, why not love it out instead?

Lyrics

All my friends agree with me, I’m sure your friends agree with you too But you were wrong for what you did and didn’t do They say I should move along, it’s no good when we come head to head I don’t think we can work it out, let’s love it out instead I try to follow their advice, put the past in it’s place and move on But something about our love haunts me when they’re gone I drive by a familiar place, I think of something we did back then I start to feel like I did when we loved it out instead But with all that’s come between us should I look the other way Can I just forget the painful things we’ve said If I held you close against me could we take the hurt away I don’t think we can work it out, let’s love it out instead, yeah Let’s love it out instead I may be my worst enemy or I may be my own best friend All I know is sometimes I need you again It may not work but I need to try, I’m not sure our love is dead But I don’t think we can work it out, let’s love it out instead

Ever been tired of being in the 'waiting room' of love? Me too.

Lyrics

I could wait forever for a lifetime, day after day wait just to live Well I thought I was on the brink, it would all happen soon And you’d be here in the end Well I guess I was dreamin, I slept a long long time I laid there so still I can hardly move And it’s hard to see the truth for all the lies I got sleep in my eyes And I finally figured out that saying you love me Sounds good but it doesn’t make it so I lost my place with you the moment I knew The you you didn’t want me to know Well I know that I can’t dream the same dream over I’m awake, the sun’s in the sky But I guess I’ll get it right eventually Now there’s sleep in my eyes I could stay forever like you want me to Wait patiently by the phone And wake up once again in a year or two Still very much alone But I finally figured out that saying you love me Sounds good but it doesn’t make it so I lost my place with you the moment I knew The you you didn’t want me to know Well I know that I can’t dream the same dream over I’m awake, the sun’s in the sky But I think I’ll get it right eventually Now there’s sleep in my eyes

Story

This just seems like a handy song to have. Once I was performing it late at night on the river walk at a festival in San Antonio and a woman got real close to my face while I was singing it and said, "That's SO true!"

Lyrics

You don’t understand no You don’t understand go away You don’t understand I don’t love you You don’t understand I don’t think so You don’t understand no, not today You don’t understand I don’t love you It’s time to give it up Time to move along When you keep showing up where you’re not wanted Something’s wrong Even when I look away I can feel you stare at me I don’t know what I’ve got to do to make you let me be. The love you see in me Is all in your head You see things I’ve never done Hear words I’ve never said When we were together I didn’t really let you in There’s no love now There was no love even way back then I try to tell you now What I tried to tell you then There’s no other way to put it, baby It’s the end You know from where I stand The truth is plain to see All I really need from you is to let me be

Story

Better have a plan B. Looking good doesn't always mean feeling good.

Lyrics

He has the car, he has the look Follows the steps, goes by the book But when he comes home no one is there He sits across from an empty chair With no one to see him looking so good He stares at the mirror and feels like a fool He needs her love again, she gives him love She gives him love, She gives him a reason to wake up in the morning and face the day She gives him love, She gives him the feeling someone would miss him if he went away She breathes life into him She gives him love He left her in April after a rain, wanted to feel young again Got an apartment, made new friends Looking for pleasure never ends While being so free and having such fun He noticed the one thing that she had done He thinks of her love again, she gives him love He leaves the table, heads for the door Thought his new life would offer more He’d left her side to follow his plan Wound up a well-dressed, empty man But if he called her, would she be there Would she hang up on him, could she still care He needs her love again She gives him love She gives him love, She gives him a reason to wake up in the morning and face the day She gives him love, She gives him the feeling someone would miss him if he went away She breathes life into him She gives him love, she breathes life into him, she gives him love

Just think about it. . .I mean, wouldn't that be a drag?

Lyrics

Well I can’t believe you’re leaving, I can’t believe you’d go But before you get your bags packed there’s some things you ought to know Well I hope you never win the lottery, I hope you catch everybody’s cold I hope you’re broke and lonely when you get old I hope the air in your pick-up truck gives out on a summer day I hope you toss and turn and wish you never went away Well I love you too much dear to wish you well So darlin, out of love I wish you hell Well I know that I’m not saying or thinking what I should But when I start forgetting you I’ll be good Well I can’t just smile about it, I can’t just let you be You need to have a bad time like the one you’re giving me Well I hope your plumbing starts leaking I hope your crummy boss won’t quit And when you tell your family that you left, they all throw a fit I hope you have to start wearing glasses, I hope you start losing all your hair I hope you look at my side of the bed and wish I was there Well I really hope lady luck will frown on you I really wish I had better thangs to do, than Hope you never win the lottery, hope you catch everybody’s cold I hope you’re broke and lonely when you get old I hope the air in your pick-up truck gives out on a summer day I hope you toss and turn and wish you never went away I hope you never win the lottery, I hope you never win the lottery I hope you never win the lottery

Story

I think people should wear a t-shirt that reads "As Is" just like the sign on used cars on the lot.

Lyrics

My friend called me last night with a desperate voice She said, “I can’t believe I’ve gone and made another bad choice” “That man that I’ve been seeing hasn’t done what he said And I’m starting to wish I was somewhere else instead” I said “I haven’t done much better, no doubt. But there’s one little thing that I finally figured out” As is, you’re gonna have to take him as is And there are no guarantees As is, you’re never gonna change him You’re gonna have to leave or just agree to disagree As is She said “I see what you mean when you put it that way But I still can’t understand why they won’t do what they say He promised he would change for the better As soon as he was sure me and him would stay together But now he’s just the same as all the men I’ve known before He’d better straighten up or I’m walking out that door She said “You’re not too helpful” I said “I’m not a fool” “How far would that man get if he were trying to change you But go ahead if you want, you can try I don’t think it’ll happen, you’re only gonna cry I know you get more warning when you buy a used car But the same rules apply, you won’t get very far

This is all about never giving up on love.

Lyrics

There’s a place for love inside me There’s still room for things I thought would never be All I have to do is find you, all I have to do is open up again All I have to see is someday, all I have to know is this is not the end There’s still time to start all over There’s still a way for me to see the world brand new All I have to do is love him and make sure that I don’t keep it to myself All I have to do is let it begin, all I have to know is this is not the end Of love, of love I can wait anticipating You don’t have to say forever, just be here with me today And I know never to say never Maybe there’s a chance that it will go our way In love, in love All I have to do is love him and make sure that I don’t keep it to myself All I have to do is let it begin, all I have to know is this is not the end Of love, of love I can wait anticipating You don’t have to say forever, just be here with me today And I know never to say never Maybe there’s a chance that it will go our way In love, in love

I wrote this song for Steve Holly, an up and coming country star from Johnnie High days. It never made it to him. Hey, Steve! Need a tune?

Lyrics

I want you I need you I’ll beg you and I’ll plead with you I can’t live without you I can’t imagine trying to So tell me how to get there And I’ll stand right next to you Tell me what you need So I can make you love me too You send me You floor me I need you to adore me You soothe me You heal me I hope you’ll get a feel for me Tell me what you want Won’t you drop me a hint or two? Tell me what you need So I can make you love me too Give me a little wink Won’t you show me a sign? Tell me what you think will make you mine, all mine You tease me You please me In my heart you’re center stage You rock me You roll me You pull my string You shake my cage Don’t leave me in the dark Turn on a light or two Tell me what you need So I can make you love me too
