SHUDDUP & PARTY!
(Dan Smith)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP)

Keep your requests to yourself
You got us mixed with someone else
We ain’t no  DJs, can’t you see
That ain’t how music’s supposed to be

Chorus:
Shuddup and Party!
Shuddup and Party!
Leave the band alone or just go home
If you do then don’t be tardy
We’ve been around and we suggest you just
Shuddup and Party! 

Just ask someone to dance
Grab your partner by the pants
But under no damn circumstance
Will we play Old Time Rock & Roll! 

Chorus

Well you asked us to play Lynyrd Skynyrd
It hurts us way down in our innerds
We dig those guys, there music’s tough
But even they won’t play our stuff 

Chorus

Bridge:
Line dancing’s all the rage
But it looks stupid from the stage
Why don’t for Heaven’s sake
You folks just get out there and shake?!

Chorus



HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN
(Alan Price)
Beachwood Music Corp. (BMI) 

There is a house in New Orleans 
They call the Rising Sun 
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy 
And God I know I'm one 

My mother was a tailor 
She sewed my new bluejeans 
My father was a gamblin' man 
Down in New Orleans 

Now the only thing a gambler needs 
Is a suitcase and trunk 
And the only time he's satisfied 
Is when he's on a drunk 

I got one foot on the platform 
The other foot on the train 
I'm goin' back to New Orleans 
To wear that ball and chain 

There is a house in New Orleans 
They call the Rising Sun 
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy 
And God I know I'm one



KIND A HEART
(John Mumma)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP)

I do all those things for ya
that a good lover should,
But it don't matter what I do,
You just ain't no good.

Chorus:
You got that
Kind a heart
that makes a man wanna die
You got that
Kind a heart
And I can't figure why
You make love fall apart
You don't even have to try
You got that
Kind heart to make a
Grown man cry.

You've got so many lovers
That I just can't keep pace
I don't catch you cheatin'
You flaunt it in my face

Chorus

For some love's just a raindrop
for you it is a flood,
This ain't a skill you learned somewhere
There's cheatin' in your blood

Chorus



WE’RE STILL HERE
(ALLEN BLASCO)
TENTH HOUSE MUSIC (ASCAP) 
 

THE FIRST TIME THAT WE EVER GOT TOGETHER
IT FELT SO RIGHT TO ME, AND I COULD TELL
YOU AND I WERE HERE TO STAY
AND I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY
THIS AIN’T JUST ANOTHER FARE-THE-WELL 

(CHORUS) 
EV’RY TIME WE’RE ON THE BACK PORCH
AND WE PLAY REMEMBER WHEN
I STILL FEEL THE WAY THAT I DID THEN
LIKE A TALL OAK TREE,
WE JUST KEEP GROWIN’ STRONGER THROUGH THE YEARS
LIFE GOES ON
AND WE’RE STILL HERE 

WE WERE RUNNIN’ LATE FOR OUR REUNION
EVERYTHING THAT COULD GOT IN OUR WAY
ALL OUR FRIENDS WERE WAITING THERE
WE MADE JOKES ABOUT OUR HAIR
AT LEAST WE KNOW SOME THINGS WON’T GO AWAY

CHORUS

WELL IT’S MORE THAN JUST A PEACEFUL EASY FEELIN’
WHEN WE PLAY AROUND, WE PLAY TO WIN
THE GOOD TIMES, YOU CELEBRATE
AND THE BAD TIMES WILL HAVE TO WAIT
WE’RE HAVIN’ TOO MUCH FUN TO LET ‘EM IN

CHORUS 

LIFE GOES ON
AND WE’RE STILL HERE

YOUR LOVE IS AN OASIS
(Dan Smith)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP) 

There’s something on my mind
How did I ever find a love like this?
A love that others missed
How could they resist your tender kiss? 

Chorus:
Your love is an oasis
And no other place is like your lovin’ arms
I see no other faces
The sight of you erases any other’s charms

Chorus 

On me you can depend
I’ll love you baby ‘till the end of tim
I’d do anything I could
There is no hill for you I wouldn’t climb 

Chorus



THE CHOLESTERAL SONG
(John Mumma)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP)

I was born on a poor farm in Kentucky,
If we had one square meal, we felt lucky,
I grew up respecting bacon and eggs,
But now you tell me their destroyin'
My heart, my lungs, my

Chorus
You're cloggin' up my arteries
with your talk about disease,
You're serious, you do not joke,
but your talk is giving me a stroke,
You keep talking 'though I turn my back,
Your talk is givin' me a heart attack,
I have heard just about all
I want to about cholesterol.

One thing that makes this country great
Is all the good things we put on our plate,
But if I eat a single ounce of steak,
You scream at me as if you're drownin',
Tremble like you're in an earthquake.


Chorus

Now and then I like to take a drink,
It clears my mind and even helps me think,
You're wavin' a sign on what the hazards are,
I'm one who believes in the right of free speech,
But now you've gone too far.

Chorus (twice)

GOIN’ TO THE TRACK (TO GET MY BABY BACK)
(ALLEN BLASCO)
TENTH HOUSE MUSIC (ASCAP)

MY BABY LOVES THE RACE TRACK
SO I MADE A DATE TO TAKE HER DOWN
I FIGURED WHEN THE RACING’S DONE,


WE COULD DO A LITTLE HORSIN’ AROUND
HER MA JUST LAUGHED WHEN I CALLED AND SAID,
‘IS MY LITTLE FILLY READY TO GO?’….
‘ODDS ARE SHE’S AT THE TRACK AGAIN,
I WOULDN’T BET ON YOUR BABY TO SHOW’

CHORUS:
I’M GOIN TO THE TRACK TO GET MY BABY BACK, I SAID
I’M GOIN TO THE TRACK TO GET MY…BABY BACK…

(REPEAT) 

I JUMPED IN MY OLD MUSTANG,
BUT SALLY DIDN’T WANNA RIDE
SO I STUCK MY THUMB OUT AND HIT THE ROAD
WITH THE RAIN POURIN’ OUTTA THE SKY
A SEMI DRIVER TOOK PITY ON ME
JUST A GRINNIN’ AND A SHAKIN’ HIS HEAD
HE ASKED ME WHERE I WAS GOIN’ TO
I LOOKED AT THE DRIVER AND SAID

(CHORUS)  

I FOUND HER AT THE WINDOW, PLACIN’A BET
SHE SAID ‘YOU LOOK RODE HARD AND PUT AWAY WET’
AND ‘I’M SO SORRY DARLIN’..FOR JUMPIN’ THE GUN’
I SAID, ‘I KNOW A BETTER WAY TO HAVE SOME FUN!’
WELL SHE FORGOT ALL ABOUT THE RACE TRACK
NEVER EVEN CROSSED HER MIND
AND THEN LAST FRIDAY I GOT ALL SHOOK UP
‘CAUSE SHE STARTED GETTIN’ HARD TO FIND

I LOOKED ALL OVER TARNATION AND BACK
‘TIL HER DADDY TOLD ME ‘SON, HERE’S A CLUE…
YOUR GIRL’S IN LOVE WITH THE DOGS THIS TIME,
AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO’….

(1/2 CHORUS) 

THERE YOU ARE!…I THOUGHT WE HAD SETTLED ALL THIS…
STICK AROUND FOR WHAT?....A STAKES RACE?….
YEAH, I GOT A STAKE IN THIS TOO, DARLIN’…..
OH NO!....THIS HERE’S A CLAIMIN’ RACE ….
AND I’.M GONNA CLAIM MY BABY BACK!….
UH… SAY WE GONNA DO WHAT LATER???....
HEH, HEH, HEH!…..HERE COMES WOODY!.... 


I'VE JUST SEEN A FACE
(Lennon, McCartney)
Sony ATV Tunes, LLC (ASCAP) 

I've just seen a face,
I can't forget the time or place
Where we'd just met, she's just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see we've met
Na na na na na na

Had it been another day
I might have looked the other wa
But I had never been aware
As it is I dream of her tonight
Na na na na na na 

CHORUS:
Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling me back again

I have never known
The likes of this, I've been alone
And I have missed things and kept out of sight
And other girls were never quite like this
Na na na na na na

CHORUS

I've just seen a face
I can t forget the time or place
Where we'd just met, she's just the girl for me
I want all the world to see we've met
Na na na na na na

DOCK OF THE BAY
(CROPPER, STEVE / REDDING, OTIS)
Irving Music, Inc. (BMI)

Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again

[Refrain]
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I had nothin to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way

So I'm just...
[Refrain]

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

Sittin here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just...



NORTH DAKOTA WALTZ
(Dan Smith) 
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP) 

When you go north of Nebraska
It starts to resemble Alaska
Would my gal take a chance
And go up there to dance
I thought I don’t know but I’ll aska 

Chorus:
And it’s yippie yi yo and kay yay
Let’s dance where the jackalope play
Waltz with me Rhoda across North Dakota
No one will be in our way 

We two-stepped our way west of Fargo
There was a human embargo
We danced after dark
Through the streets of Bismarck
We counted less people than cargo 

Chorus 

Then we drove to the Minot State Fair
We could almost see Canada there
It’s the last on the list
You would find a tourist
There’s no folks but there’s lot’s of fresh air 

Chorus

Song Lyrics from Midwest Man

Song Lyrics from Shuddup & Party!

JUBILATION
(John Grazier and Don Roth)
Screen Gems-EMI Music, Inc. (BMI) 

For quite some time
My life has been a sad song
Filled with empty promise and goodbye
Yesterday’s behind me I can see tomorrow
Used up my sorrow I got no tears to cry 

CHORUS
Lookin’ for Jubilation
Gonna start a celebration
I ain’t felt this good
Since I don’t know when
Jubilation you’re a sweet sensation
Set me on fire I’m in love again 

I’ve been inclined
To live my life with no one
Wounded by a love that walked away
You and me can share a brand new love song
My fear is gone it’s a bright new day 

CHORUS 

BRIDGE
Anticipation never let me alone
I go crazy for your touch
It’s medication for what ails me now
And I need you oh so much

CHORUS (repeat)



I’M ALWAYS LEAVING TOWN
(Jay Ramsey)
Southern Gazette Music (BMI) 

I’m always leavin’ town
I never stick around to see the ending
I’m better with beginnings
And pretending that I’ll be back around
I’m always leavin’ town 

Sometimes I’d like to stay
But then I weigh the price
That I’d have to pay in dreams
But then is seems my crazy needs
Are stronger than the new friends that I’ve found
I’m always leavin’ town 

CHORUS
So let me go on without your sorrow
Let me go on without a tear
I feel in touch with my tomorrows
Maybe my dreams are getting near
I told you the first time that I touched you
It might also be the last
I know how I am when I start to hear
That highway sound
I’m always leavin’ town

I always need to fly
Once I might have stayed
But then my dreams got in my eyes
Now the things I’ve prayed for
Seem to be just down the road where I’m bound
I’m always leavin’ town

CHORUS



MIDWEST MAN
(Rick Harrelson)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP) 

Shorty, Saddle up
And ride on into town
Pretty ladies and lot’s of whisky
But don’t forget to look around
By this time tomorrow morning
Our empty pockets will be filled with gold
And the Bank of St. Joe just a story to be told 

CHORUS
But how long can you run
Breakin’ camp from day to day
When you know the law’s a comin’
And he’s just a mile away
You’ve been robbin’ and you’ve been killin’
And he’s gonna have to make you pay
Midwest Man you know you can’t get away. 

Ridin’ cross the plains
With the fastest guns in the land
There was not one sheriff’s posse
That could track the Midwest Man
Robbin’ trains in Oklahoma
And the Arkansas Wells Fargo
Midwest man you ain’t got too far to go 

CHORUS 

Now he’s hold up in a barn
His wrinkled face is weather-burned
His trigger’s getting’ rusty
And his spurs won’t even turn
You better come out with your hands up
And you better lay your six gun down
Or Midwest Man I’m gonna put you in the ground 

CHORUS  

 

TENNESSEE GIRL
(Michael Meyers)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP)

I spent the long hot summer down in Dallas
But the sun didn’t shine like it does in Tennessee
And an all night woman tried to show me
How to forget you
But the love I left with you was all I had in me 

Well the air is clean in the fall in Colorado
And I thought I fell in love a time or two
But I can’t even remember what they
Tried to tell me
‘Cause all I thought about was comin’ home to you 

CHORUS
Tennessee girl won’t you take me in
I’m tired of travelin,’ I’m tired of sin
Tennessee girl won’t you take me back again
I ain’t held you close since I don’t know when
Oh Tennessee girl won’t you take me back again 

It rained all winter long in San Francisc
And the ocean wind was cold on her and me
She was sweet and I said I’d like to love you
But California ain’t the place I wanna be

Well spring finally came here in Montana
And the warm sun greens the grass like you’ve never seen
Good ole’ boys buyin’ drinks for me and my woman
But tomorrow I’ll be gone ‘cause it ain’t home to me 

CHORUS
Tennessee girl won’t you take me in
I’m tired of travlin’ I’m tired of sin
Tennessee girl won’t you take me back again
I ain’t seen your eyes since I don’t know when
Oh Tennessee girl won’t you take me back again 

 

TAKIN’ TIME FOR MAKIN’ LOVE
(Keith, Springfield, Stephenson)
Warner House of Music (BMI) 

Remember when we fell in love together
We were just a couple of crazy kids
We didn’t know the meaning of forever
It’s still the smartest thing we ever did
People always ask us how we do it
In a world where everything gets thrown away
I guess they think we’ve found the secret to it
They don’t know we’re still learnin’ every day

CHORUS
Takin’ time for makin’ love
Makin’ sure we get enough
We lock the world outside and steal away
Just the two of u
And we share each other’s dreams
And we laugh at crazy things
It’s just you and me
Takin’ time for makin’ love 

Someday we’ll look back and say we made it
We didn’t let the good times pass us by
Come on over here I want to hold you
Let’s make the most of tonight 

CHORUS (repeat)

 

LOVE’S A GAME
(Larry Keith)
Warner House of Music (BMI) 

CHORUS


Love’s a game that you play
If you do play it cool
And if you don’t break the rules
It out-shines any star
Love’s a game that you play
You can win, you can lose
And if the wrong way you choose
It can injure your heart 

So he didn’t call and he’s late
And you’re feelin’ the sting
Did it really hurt you to wait
It’s a trivial thing 

BRIDGE
Take a look at yourself
Is it really worth all the hell
Can’t you tell 

CHORUS 

So you’re not the first one she’s known
And it hurts you inside
And you just can’t leave it alone
It’s a matter of pride 

BRIDGE 

CHORUS (repeat) 

(HAND CLAPPING: UNCLE MIKE, LARRY, UNCLE JOE, DAN, JULIANA, RICK, SUBA AND RICH)

 

SEE THE GROWN MAN CRY
(Jay Ramsey)
Southern Gazette Music (BMI) 

I used to sit there and I’d listen
As he played his old guitar
With his hat pushed back, he’d be smilin’
Sippin’ from an old fruit jar
The smile would fade  each time he played
About a love that said goodbye
I remember it seemed so silly
To see the grown man cry 

CHORUS
See the grown man cry
See the teardrops in his eyes
As a boy I thought I’d never cry that way
He taught me how to sing and play
But he never told me why
I’d be listenin’ to his sad songs
And see the grown man cry

Now the years have past
And Lord it seems so fast
And I guess that I’m a star
I’m drinkin’ bonded bourbon
And I drive a fancy car
And the big crowds pay to see me
Where my name lights up the sky
But when I sing my song about you
They see the grown man cry 

CHORUS
See the grown man cry
See the teardrops in his eyes
I recall and old man singin’ to a boy
But it takes a man to understand
And I’m finally learnin’ why
‘Cause when I sing my song about you
They see the grown man cry
Yes when I sing my song about you
They see the grown man cry

 

UNTIL YOUR LOVE FOUND ME
(Hurt, Keith, Pippin, Slate)
Warner House of Music (BMI) 

Your love is like a light that’s always shining
It lights the road I’m walking bright as day
And when I’m cloudy you become my silver lining
And when we’re loving I become your slave 

CHORUS
Your love means everything to me
Your love is everything I need
Oh my darling without your love where would I be
I’d be lost until you love found me 

There was a time my dreams were lost and scattered
I was only looking out for number one
And then you came and showed me love is all that matters
And it’s all there is when all is said and done 

CHORUS (repeat)

 

PLAY ME AWAY
(Jay Ramsey)
Southern Gazette Music (BMI) 

Play your song again for me
Before the bar man closes for the day
I’m the one who’s sad
But your guitar can say it sadder
She was all I had
But then I guess I only had her
In my mind
So play me away
Play me away 

Wish that I could sleep awhile
Without the bad dream coming true again
One day we stopped talking
And the next day we stopped touching
Now I’m like a child alone
With all the old fears rushing
Back to stay
So play me away 

CHORUS
Play me away to the day
When time has eased my hurtin’
Play me away to a night
When moonlight through the curtain
Touched her face
Play me away
Play me away

Play your song again for me
Before the bar man closes for the day
I’ve got some pain to lose
Before I choose my destination
If there’s a train for fools
Then you can play me to the station
With a song

Play me away 

CHORUS

 

SATURDAY DANCE
(Paul Mumma and Jim Blanton)
Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP) 

I was drivin’ down the road with my baby in my Model T
We hadn’t got far when my crazy baby said to me
Hey big daddy there’s a dance tonight
On the pier in the moonlight by the blue sea 

CHORUS
Wah da do da wah da do da wah da do da day
Wah da do da wah da do da wah da do da day
Hey big daddy there’s a dance tonight
On the pier in the moonlight by the blue sea

We got to the dance everybody was havin’ a ball
Hootchy coo’ed all night without no trouble at all
Dancin’ up a storm my baby and me
On the pier in the moonlight by the blue sea 

CHORUS 

BRIDGE
Ooh dance the night away
You could hear the big band play
Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah
Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah 

CHORUS 

We climbed in the car we were tired as we could be
On the way home my crazy baby said to me
There’s nothin’ better than a Saturday dance
On the pier in the moonlight by the blue sea 

CHORUS

Prairie Beach Music (ASCAP)

Gather up your dreams, go adventurin’ with me
Where smoke and cinders fly, on the PSB&T
Ridin’ silver ribbons as they sing their melody
A million youthful memories on the PSB&T

There’s on train you can count on, it’s the PSB&T

Ridin’ silver ribbons as they sing their melody
A million youthful memories on the PSB&T
