ALABAMA lyrics

High Cotton

Original and similar lyrics
We didn't know that times were lean Round our house the grass was green It didn't seem like things were all that bad I bet we walked a thousand miles Chopin' cotton and pushin' plows And learnin' how to give it all we had. As life went on and years went by I saw the light in daddy's eyes And felt - the love in mama's hands They kept us warm and kept us fed Taught us how to look ahead Now lookin' back, I understand. Chorus: We Were Walkin' in High Cotton Old times there are not forgotten Those fertile fields are never far away We Were Walkin' in High Cotton Old times there are not forgotten Leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced. When Sunday mornings rolled around We dressed up in hand-me downs Just in time, to gather with the church Sometimes I think how long it's been And how it impressed me then It was the only day my daddy wouldn't work. Chorus X2 We Were Walkin' In High Cotton.

How Many Times

TOTO "Kingdom Of Desire"
How many years keep on slipping away And it seems that your life doesn't matter You never had a chance How many ways is a love torn apart And you look to your heart for some answers Don't let it slip away Can't blame myself anymore, I've been beaten and accused before Well I took some bad advice, and I paid too high a price I could sell my soul, you know I wouldn't think twice Chorus: How many times must a man fall down I said whoa-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh How many dreams have to fall to the ground It goes on an' on an' on an' on an' on, yeah How many times do you look for some sign That there's hope, and your life has some meaning Almost every day, hey, hey Maybe I was born to wander, I got no high hopes any longer So tell me my friend, just where does it end Is nothin' ever gonna free me from this hell I'm livin' in Chorus (Instrumental break) Can't blame myself anymore, I've been beaten and accused before So tell me my friend, just where does it end I'm sick and tired of livin' in a rat race that no one ever wins Chorus repeats 2x

Walkin Away

Keith Harling
Long leges stepped out of the car And walked across the floor to the bar I turned my head, didn't want her to see The way her walk was affecting me The bartender said you'd better think twice She's not the kind of girl your momma would like Don't waste your time, just walk on by She'll just walk away and leave you high and dry Chorus: Cause she's got a way of walkin that could make a grown man cry She's got a way of talkin that could make you believe her lies Oh she could get away with murder Took my heart and didn't leave a trace She's got a way of walkin, walkin away A young boy, barely twenty-four I'd never been in love before She took the lead right from the start And led me up to the leavin part Now she's gone, but I'm alright I wonder where she's walkin tonight She's always there in the back of my mind I'd love to see her walk in here tonight Repeat Chorus:

I Didn't Know My Own Strength

LORRIE MORGAN "Greatest Hits"
I've been livin' with a heart on the mend Wonderin' how will I ever be strong I know I'll live to love again I just leaned on you too long It's been an uphill fight But I'm gonna be alright CHORUS I didn't know my own strength 'Till I had to pick myself up And carry on without your love I'm gettin' back on my feet It's been a long hard fall But I'll make it after all I didn't know my own strength I've had oceans of tears to get through And the weight of the world on my mind There've been mountains of memories to move And I've been beating back the blows to my pride But 'Til the times got tough I never knew what I was made of CHORUS Then the times got tough And I knew what I was made of CHORUS

Nothing Lasts Forever

J. COLE
[Hook] I tried, you tried, we tried All of the times that we had together We should've known nothing lasts forever [repeat] [Verse 1] When this shit end, man it's gon' get ugly Real real ugly, your grandmama love me And your mama love me, little sister hugs me Even got a few homegirls that wanna fuck me Soon as this shit end, forget about it You been stayin' in my crib, you gotta get about it Cause if you layin' in my bed, let's admit about it One time fuckin' and we no longer upset about it Cause when this shit ends it's either all or nothin' I thought you loved me, how the hell you gon' call yo cousin? You know the diesel ass, half slow, evil ass Nigga in that Honda showin' up with that drama On my mama, we been through it all From the goods to the bads, rise to the fall You done seen me at my best, seen me at my worst So when this shit ends, know it's gon' hurt [Hook] (You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try) I tried, you tried, we tried All of the times that we had together We should've known nothing lasts forever [repeat] [Verse 2] They say we won't last I know you suspicious, but you don't ask And I don't tell, that's where we both fell A good nigga gone bad Good chick a lil mad as fuck, she done had enough I be, out here tryna raise my status up But success bring bitches, and they bad as fuck Ass fat as fuck, with a little ol' waist I ain't want the whole meal, just a little ol' taste Should have looked both ways 'fore I crossed you I guess I never thought I could have ever have lost you Now I'm out stuntin' with this bitch, you ain't about nothin' While some nigga learnin' all the shit I taught you Damn, guess you deserve that, a new start But deep down you know we grew apart Long before I broke your heart, if I lost your respect I'm just hopin' you don't look at me as somethin' you regret [Hook] (You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try) I tried, you tried, we tried All of the times that we had together We should've known nothing lasts forever [repeat] [Verse 3] I got your message I been meanin' to respond, know it's been awhile Apologies, I ain't been around I wanna kick it, but I know that shit is different now And times have changed Let me know if I'm out of bounds, are the lines the same? I mean ya, lookin' good, yeah you still got it Been reminiscin' and I'm not sure how I feel about it Now we can say that all good things come to an end But we know each other way too well to pretend We went from friends to somethin' much more To breakin' up to makin' up and fuckin' once more Second chances, we gave enough to finally We gave it up, but some days I be wakin' up and wantin' one more But what for? Maybe it's just the weather We break each others hearts, so maybe it's for the better Holler whenever, cause you always got a friend in me And nothin' lasts forever, least we got these memories [Hook] (You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try) I tried, you tried, we tried All of the times that we had together We should've known nothing lasts forever [repeat]
