ALABAMA lyrics - Southern Star

I Showed Her

Original and similar lyrics
She told me I should straighten up my ways Or she'd be walkin' out I guess I was just too blind to see Or maybe just too proud So I never thought twice When she loaded up her things and drove away 'Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back Took off my work clothes And left them right there on the floor 'Cause I knew she'd pick 'em up When she got home like a hundred times before And just to make it easier for her I left the light on on the porch 'Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back I guess I showed her How much she had to lose Showed her, who was really who I know she's hurtin' now Looks like I showed her I must have seen the movie of the month A dozen times or more I watched my favorite team play ball But I never heard a score 'Cause the whole time I was listening For the moment when she'd walk through the door 'Cause I knew she'd be back someday I know she'll be back I guess I showed her How much she had to lose Showed her, who was really who I know she's hurtin' now Looks like I showed her If I could I show her how much she had to lose I'd show her I've been hurtin' too If I could hold her now I'd really show her...

Cowboy

ANYA MARINA "Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II"
There was a dive bar and a cowboy Well, not a cowboy really, but he wore the hat And there was someone who looked like me At least a little, but not exact He said, "I'm gonna take you out proper You and me are going to the zoo." And I pretended that I was bored And I could take my eyes off of you All I had to do was ask I never knew that this would last I never knew what I was in for This town thinks it's got your number It's unlisted, but they can wonder and guess and speculate on you and me Little did I know, Little did I see Little did I know just how far our little car could go Little did I know Said he was damaged over whiskey A kind of Kerouac over cigarettes "Let me guess, you're a gambler, too?" He said, "I bet I marry you." Well, I was talking like a bad-ass, too A kind of animal all my own "No one's ever gonna tie me down, Especially not some Romeo." All I had to do was look You were such an open book How could I miss what I was in for? Go on ahead and be a loner Pur on your distant look and roam around the west Like Jack and Neal and Dean Little did I know And I drove a thousand miles for you I even bent the rules, it's true I swear to everything above I never knew you at all, my love

The Greatest Man I Never Knew

REBA MCENTIRE
The greatest man I never knew Lived just down the hall And everyday we said hello But never touched at all He was in his paper I was in my room How was I to know he thought I hung the moon The greatest man I never knew Came home late every night He never had too much to say Too much was on his mind I never really knew him Oh and now it seems so sad Everything he gave to us took all he had Then the days turned into years And the memories to black and white He grew cold like an old winter wind Blowing across my life The greatest words I never heard I guess I'll never hear The man I thought would never die He's been dead almost a year He was good in business But there was still business left to do He never said he loved me Guess he thought I knew

Marvelous Toy

JOHN DENVER "Christmas Like A Lullaby"
When I was just a wee little boy. Full of health and joy. One Christmas morning I received A marvelous little toy. A wonder to be hold it was Many colours bright. And the moment I layed eyes on it It became my heart's delight. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. The first time that I picked it up. I had a big surprise. For right on it's bottom Were two green buttons That looked like big green eyes. I first pushed one. And then the other. And then I pushed on its lid. And when I set it down again This is what it did. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. It first marched left. Then marched right And then marched under a chair. And when I looked where it had gone It wasn't even there. I started to cry. My daddy laughed. He knew that I would find. When I turned around my marvelous toy Chugging from behind. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. Well, the years have passed Too quickly it seems. I have my own little boy. And yesterday I gave to him My marvelous little toy. His eyes nearly popped right out of his head. He gave the squeal of glee Neither one of us knows just what it is, But he loves it just like me. It still goes 'zzzip' when it moves, 'Bopp' when it stoppes, 'Brrr' when it stands still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will.

Roses

Ian Janis
She never had too much of money Friendly strangers were all she knew Nobody ever came to call but you I would not say she isn't happy though the eyes of a fool will make her blue Nobody's ever seen the tears It's true I guess nobody wanted to We'll have a celebration Ice cream and candy cakes She's very young to go so far away And then there'll be the papers in black and white to say we're through Nobody every loved me quite like you I guess nobody wanted to And there'll be roses in the springtime still I guess there will I wish her roses and song And she'll be older as years go by, and how they fly Will she be lonely without me along? She doesn't make friends easily She's only known a few The incidental stranger passing through On Sundays and holidays I'll take her far away We never tried to save the love we knew I guess nobody wanted to

Way Back When

AIMEE MANN "Whatever"
Well, I guess that this is now the end who'd have thought my old friend we signed the papers and we capped the pen But I remember you from way back when 'Good evening, ladies and gentlemen welcome David-what's-his-name-again' Things change - the old cliche if we knew now what we knew yesterday oh, we couldn't give it away. I was working at a record store I knew you, you knew the score some kind of deal is what we're looking for Time came, and disappeared no one steered and it got weirder help was needed, no one volunteered. Things change, you got to wait a bit what made me think that I could weather it? you're down before you even notice you've been hit And through it all I wondered where the bus was taking you who knew? and even though my one and one was always making two I never thought that I was breaking you. We were victims of the old taboo but people change we changed too just make it count before they get to you. Things change - baby, hold the phone! - they'll shoot you down like you was Al Capone Oh, you better go it alone. Well, I guess that this is now the end the paper's signed - forget the pen wonder if we'll ever meet again?
