ALABAMA lyrics - 40 Hour Week

If It Ain't Dixie (It Won't Do)

Original and similar lyrics
Oh, I love those Colorado Rockies And that big starry Montana sky And the lights of San Francisco On a California night Enjoyed those ballgames in Chicago On those windy afternoons It's a big beautiful country But I'm never home too soon If it ain't Dixie, it won't do If it ain't Dixie it don't feel quite like home My southern blood runs deep and true I've had good times North of the line I've got a lot of good friends, too But if it ain't Dixie, it won't do It won't do When the leaves turn in New England I love the chill that's in the air I've walked the New York City sidewalks Had a big time in Times Square But now my wheels are rollin' southward And heaven's comin' into view Home-sweet-home is Alabama That's what I look forward too If it ain't Dixie it don't feel quite like home My southern blood runs deep and true I've had good times North of the line I've got a lot of good friends, too If it ain't Dixie, it won't do It won't do If it ain't Dixie Oh no, Oh no-whoah Now my wheels are rollin' southward And heaven's comin' into view Home-sweet-home is Alabama That's what I look forward to If it ain't Dixie, it just won't do If it ain't Dixie, whoa no If it ain't Dixie. If it ain't Dixie, oh yeah If it ain't Dixie, oh no...

Lesson In Survival

JONI MITCHELL "For The Roses"
Lesson in Survival Spinning out on turns That gets you tough Guru books-the Bible Only a reminder That you're just not good enough You need to believe in something Once I could in our love Black road Double yellow line Friends and kin Campers in the kitchen That's fine sometimes But I know my needs My sweet tumbleweed I need more quiet times By a river flowing You and me Deep kisses And the sun going down Maybe it's paranoia Maybe it's sensitivity Your friends protect you Scrutinize me I get so damn timid Not at all the spirit That's inside of me Oh baby I can't seem to make it With you socially There's this reef around me I'm looking way out at the ocean Love to see that green water in motion I'm going to get a boat And we can row it If you ever get the notion To be needed by me Fresh salmon frying And the tide rolling in I went to see a friend tonight 'Was very late when I walked in My talking as it rambled Revealed suspicious reasoning The visit seemed to darken him I came in as bright As a neon light And I burned out Right there before him I told him these things I'm telling you now Watched them buckle up In his brow When you dig down deep You lose good sleep And it makes you Heavy company I will always love you Hands alike Magnet and iron The souls

ANDY WILLIAMS "Love, Andy"
(Hummed intro) The harbor lights were shining, The moon was at its high. The captain said, Thank God we're home! We've drunk the barrels dry. The mizzen mast was shaken, And the lanterns all burned low, I'd never thought we'd make it But we've twenty leagues to go So blow you southern trades And guide me safely to the shore, I'll never ever gonna sail The seven seas no more CHORUS: I don't want to miss the sand in my hair, The roll of the tide and the salt in the air Deep inside it's true I'm a home lovin' man Comin' on home to you I don't want to miss the wind in my eyes, The shimmerin' light when the seagull flies Lo, I've traveled far I'm a home loving man, Home is where you are The crowd upon the quayside Their faces long and drawn Are suddenly awakened As we sail in on the dawn The wives, the sons, the lovers, Who never gave up hope All breathe a sigh together As they reach to catch the rope God bless you, southern trades, You got me safely back this time Oh, you'll never have the need again To save this soul of mine CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS: Yes, I don't want to miss the sand in my hair, The roll of the tides and the salt in the air Deep inside it's true I'm a home lovin' man Comin' on home to you... FADE

JACI VELASQUEZ "Jaci Velasquez"
You Who makes The sun light up my shadows When the darkness tries to follow me? Who makes The air that brings me life So I can breathe the love that's given to me? You make ev'rything good, Ev'rything wonderful. You grace my days And heaven fills my view. Let's forever sing. You make ev'rything pure, Ev'rything beautiful. You make me see the only thing that's true: It's You, It's You. Who makes The waters of my sorrow part And leads the gladness into my heart? Who makes The rivers run that wash away And clean my soul to make a new start? You make ev'rything good, Ev'rything wonderful. You grace my days And heaven fills my view. Let's forever sing. You make ev'rything pure, Ev'rything beautiful. You make me see the only thing that's true: It's You. You hung the moon; You placed the stars that shine Your love for me. I hope all that I do Will show reflections of You. All I do, all for You, shine Your love through me. You make ev'rything good, Ev'rything wonderful. You grace my days And heaven fills my view. Let's forever sing. You make ev'rything pure, Ev'rything beautiful. You make me see the only thing that's true, It's You, it's You, it's You. You're ev'rything pure and beautiful.
