THIS MORNING AT NINE
by Sid Campbell

I awoke this morning from a lovely dream
and looked about this lonely room of mine
Somewhere in the distance to me it did seem
church bells were ringing this morning at nine

CHORUS:
Bitter tears I'm shedding all because of you
I'm like a lonely prisoner serving his time
Thinking of the days, the days when love was true
but you wed another this morning at nine

My poor broken heart, it started to cry
as I realized you would never be mine
just then I remembered what day it really was
You wed another this morning at nine
CHORUS

THE WAY YOU LOOK AT HIM
by Art Blackburn

You were the reason Iíd go to work each day
You held the keys to my heart
And I was your reason, thatís what youíd always say
Weíd grow old together and we would never part

My friends, they would tell me, Youíre such a lucky man
to have a darliní wife so sweet and true
But they donít know what I know, they canít understand
what itís like when the one you loveís fallen out of love with you

CHORUS:
Never meant for it to come to this, it was just one of those things
A cruel and unkind twist of fate that a hard life often brings
And as the sun begins to set, these walls start closiní in
I wish that youíd still look at me the way you look at him

You say that you werenít lookiní, you hadnít played the game
until the day he walked into your life
Once we were so happy, once I held you near
Now those warm and sunny days have turned to lonely nights
CHORUS

THE GREEN MOSSY GROUND
by Lisa Fuglie

Oh, sing to me of hearts and of mourning
for my own heart is heavy and will not withstand
Let the tears gather Ďround an unknown occasion
and spill from me onto the green mossy ground

Though I had the desire to wait for his calling
still I had not what true love requires
Or so was my thought one cold winter morning
when far he had traveled and long was he gone

I thought to remind him of family virtue
and show him the one whose face heíd not seen
I found only sorrow for all of my seeking
In silence he lay on the cold barren ground

They said that my love had perished with honor
They said that my love had called out a name
He spoke of a girl he promised to marry
who danced with him on the green mossy ground

I bore him home to be with the elders
I would that the morning smile on him now
In the evening when I take to my garden
Iíll wait for him there on the green mossy ground

I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY
Lyrics by: Katherine Hankey, 1834-1911
Music by: William G. Fischer, 1835-1912

I love to tell the story of unseen things above
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love
I love to tell the story, because I know 'tis true
it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do

CHORUS:
I love to tell the story, Iíll sing this theme in glory
and tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love

I love to tell the story, 'tis pleasant to repeat
what seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
the message of salvation from God's own holy word
CHORUS

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest
And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song
'twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long
CHORUS

NO MOTHER OR DAD
by Curly Seckler & Lester Flatt

Now brother and I are all alone
We have no place to call our own
Itíll never be like it was before
Theyíre calliní me on the other shore

CHORUS:
Oh mother, dear. and daddy too
we wish that we were there with you
Itís not the same since youíre away
Weíll meet you mother and dad some day

Our little home has crumbled down
since mother and dad are not around
What is a home without a friend
I can never go back home again
CHORUS

LISTENING TO THE RAIN
by Don Devaney

Iím looking out the window and the rain tonight is driving me crazy
Itís just as cold inside, all the warmth is gone without my baby
And in my mind something stirs aní my lips start crying out your name
Iím sitting here wondering where you are and listening to the rain

The beating on the window canít compare
with the beating that Iím taking
The windowís gonna hold, but look at me, Iím already breaking
Memories tugging at my heart aní itís gonna break beneath the strain
While Iím sitting here wondering where you are aní listening to the rain

My mind has got you pictured in the arms
and in the heart of some new love
Iíve tried to block it out but all my mind can see is him and you, love
Knowiní that it might be true, thatís the thing thatís causiní all the
pain
While Iím sitting here wondering where you are aní listening to the rain

Yeah Iím sitting here wondering where you are aní listening to the rain

THE SWEETEST SONG I SING
by Tim O'Brien

Was in the spring we met each other
and by chance a seed was sown
Now it's five years we've been together
and our love, how big it's grown

CHORUS:
You're the one who wears my ring
An' these hard times don't mean a thing
I may be poor but I'm a king
You are the sweetest song I sing

Well, Lord knows the love we have, dear
How two hearts can beat as one
Your smilin' eyes, way of kissin'
Lovin' touch when day is done
CHORUS

Some people plan for the future
they build a home, they save their pay
They need a sign to go on livin'
But I know a better way
CHORUS

I may be poor but I'm a king
You are the sweetest song I sing

EIGHT GOOD YEARS
by Art Blackburn

Don't look at me that way, say what you gotta say
Get it off your chest, let's put it all to rest, don't wait another day
So wipe away those tears, put aside your fears
How you touched my heart, love, right from the start
We've had eight good years

CHORUS 1:
Eight good years of loving you
through the rich times and the poor
Remember, dear, when our love was new
Darlin', will there be eight more

Do we take it one more day, or go our separate ways
We've seen others fall, did they give their all, is this the price we'll
pay
At dawn I say a prayer each night that you'll be there
Laying here with me, canít we come to see
why we've had eight good years

CHORUS 2:
Eight good years of loving you
through the happiness and pain
Has your heart become cold and blue
Will the good times come again

Repeat CHORUS 2 plus
Remember, dear, when our love was new
through the laughter and the tears
Darlin', we've had eight good years
(through the rich times and the
poor)
We've had eight good years (darlin', will there be eight more)
We've had eight good years (through the happiness and pain)
We've had eight good years (will the good times come again)
Darlin', we've had eight good years

JUST BECAUSE OF YOU
by Mark Anderson & Lisa Fuglie

CHORUS:
Just because of you Iíll be lonesome
Just because of you Iíll be blue
All because of you I should be leaving
But everyoneís got problemsí, Iíve got you

A fool, disgraced, should be going
My man, my friends, it canít be true

You came and brought me happiness
that I wonít forget
But you Ďve been slippiní out and spreading cheer
every chance you get
CHORUS

A fool like me goes on believing
the tales you tell to keep me near

I just hold my head up high
Pretend Iíve got no clue
But in our small town the echoís loud
I know all you do
CHORUS
But everyoneís got problemsí, Iíve got you

THE RAIN
by Becky Buller

The crops had all been planted but the fields were lying dry
The farmer stood on his barren land, cursed the sun up in the sky
The preacher Sunday morning said, Listen to what I say
If you wanna see them storm clouds
you better get down on your knees and pray

CHORUS:
Wash away your troubles
Wash away your pain
Thank the Lord above in heaven
for sending down the rain

He stepped out of the pulpit and silence filled the air
As all the congregation bowed their heads in humble prayer
And when amen was spoken the tears rolled down their face
Ďcause the rain was streaming down outside
so they sang Amazing Grace
CHORUS

Long ago in Bethlehem a little child came down
like holy rain to quench the souls of the men upon the ground
So if your heartís been aching, Heís what youíre looking for
Just take a drink form Jesus
and youíll never thirst no more
CHORUS 2X
For Jesus is the rain

WHY DID YOU WANDER
by Bill Monroe & Lester Flatt

CHORUS:
Oh, why oh why did you wander
Why did you ever roam
when you know that we always were happy
all alone in our old mountain home

It was down in the old Cumberland Mountains
down in the hills of Tennessee
that he waited alone in the moonlight
It was there that he waited for me
CHORUS

Oh, why did you leave me little darling
Why did you leave me alone
when you knew I'd be lonesome without you
all alone in our old mountain home
CHORUS

I hope that you'll always be happy
no matter where you may roam
And I hope to be with you up in heaven
as we were in our old mountain home
CHORUS
