SECOND WIND
(Claire Lynch & Pamela Brown Hayes, Songs of Polygram Int'l Pub., Inc. - Sound Cell Songs, BMI)

Somethin' familiar blew in with the wind
a dream I let fall by the wayside
I find myself yearnin' to live it again
Now, there's no stoppin' me this time, 'cause

CHORUS:
I've been surveyin' the shape that I'm in
Wasted and weary and wearin' it thin
I know where I've been but who knows where I'm goin'
I feel a second wind blowin', blowin' my way

The first time around you don't know what you have
until the day comes when you lose it
Now, I'm gettin' ready for my second chance
This time I won't refuse it, 'cause
CHORUS

I won't be denyin' my heart any longer
The longer I wait, this feeling grows stronger
CHORUS

GOSPEL PLOW
(Bob Dylan, Music Corp of America, BMI)

Well, I got my hands on the gospel plow
and I wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now
Keep your hands on the plow of God

CHORUS:
Hold on, hold on
Keep your hand on the plow, hold on

Well, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
All those prophets are dead and gone
Keep your hands on the plow of God
CHORUS

Well, I've never been to heaven but I've been told
The streets up there are made of gold
Keep your hands on the plow of God
CHORUS

DREAMING IN THREE-QUARTER TIME
(McComb, Liquidamber Music, BMI)

Sitting alone in a noisy bar
waiting for the band to start
There's nothing like the sound of a steel guitar
when you're out with a broken heart

CHORUS:
When they play a waltz with a sweet melody
like we danced to when you were mine
Oh, I can believe that you're here with me
dreamin' in three-quarter time

When they play a waltz, I can close my eyes
and dream that you're holding me tight
It will be just like we never said goodbye
And you'll be back with me tonight
CHORUS

Heading back home with my head in the stars
still dancing in the moonlight
Well, we sure closed down that noisy old bar
waltzing way after midnight
CHORUS

LONG TIME GONE
(F. Harford & T. Ritter, Michael H. Goldsen, ASCAP)

You cheated me, you made me lonely
I tried to be your very own
There'll come a day you'll want me only
‘cause when I leave, I'll be a long time gone

CHORUS:
I'll be a long time gone, I'll be a long time gone
When I leave, I'll be a long time gone

You'll see my face through tears of sorrow
You'll miss the love you called your own
Maybe there'll be no tomorrow
‘cause when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
CHORUS

You're gonna be sad, you're gonna be weepin'
You're gonna be blue and all alone
You'll regret the day you seen me leavin'
‘cause when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
CHORUS

ROCK HEARTS
(Bill Otis, Cedarwood Pub. Co., BMI)

CHORUS:
Rock hearts will break (rock hearts will break)
believe it, my dear (believe it, my dear)
And your will break (and yours will break)
in two, I fear (in two, I fear)
And when it does, dear, don't run to me
'cause it will be too late, you see

Why did you break my heart and throw it down
Why did you spread the news all over town
Why did you make me the laughin' stock
Because you've got a heart of rock
CHORUS

You didn't break my heart by runnin 'round
Another new love you have not found
You've only handed me back the lock
I had around your heart of rock
CHORUS

DOWN TO THE VALLEY TO PRAY
(Public Domain)

CHORUS:
As I went down to the valley to pray
studyin' about the good old days
An' who will wear the (robe/star)* and crown

Come on down, won't you come on down
Oh brother, let's go down

Come on down, won't you come on down
Oh sister, let's go down
down to the valley to pray

Oh father, let's go down
down to the valley to pray

down to the valley to pray

Oh children, let's go down
down to the valley to pray

BUILD ME A CABIN
(Willie Joe Ligon, Skinny Zac Music, ASCAP)

Many years I've been looking for a place to call home
I've failed here to find it, and I must travel on
I don't want no fine mansions on earth's shifting sands
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of glory land

CHORUS:
Lord, build me just a cabin in the corner of glory land
Build me a cabin in the corner of glory, glory land
In the shade of that tree of life, for it may ever stand
In the shade of that old tree for it may ever stand
Where I can hear the angels sing, and shake Jesus' hand
I can hear the angels sing and shake Jesus' Jesus' hand
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of glory land
Build me a cabin in the corner of glory land

Blessed Lord, I'm not askin' to live in the midst
'cause I know I'm not worthy of splendor as this
But I'm askin' for mercy, as humbly I stand
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of glory land
CHORUS

I have many dear loved ones who have gone on this way
On that bright morning shall I hear them say
Come join in our singin', come play in our band
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of glory land
CHORUS

I COULD FIND A WAY
(Roger Rasnake, Pathwalker Music, BMI)

CHORUS:
I could find a way to change your mind
if you'd only give me one more try
I'd show you how a true love could be
if you'd change your mind about me

I wonder if maybe you'd stay the night with me
I bet you by morning you would change your point of view
It's gettin' lately I'm goin' crazy
with all this burnin' love buildin' up inside for you
CHORUS

Now, you've been hurt a'plenty I'm certain, one too many times
but what I feel for you is like no other's felt before
I'll stop your cryin', I'll prove that I'm not lyin'
But you'll never know the truth if you go walkin' out the door
CHORUS

I'LL LOVE NOBODY BUT YOU
(Jim & Jesse McReynolds, Fort Knox Music, BMI)

I'll never love anybody but you baby, baby
I'll never love anybody but you if you'll be my girl

CHORUS:
Oh yes, believe me, it's true
Oh yes, I'll love nobody but you

I'll always be true to you baby, baby
I'll always be true to you if you'll be my girl
CHORUS

I'll take you out every night baby, baby
I'll take you out every night if you'll be my girl

RANK STRANGER
(Albert E. Brumley, Affiliated Music Ent., BMI)

I wandered again to my home in the mountains
where in youth's early dawn I was happy and free
I looked for my friends but I never could find them
I found they were all rank strangers to me

CHORUS:
Everybody I met seemed to be a rank stranger
No mother or dad, not a friend could I see
They knew not my name and I knew not their faces
I found they were all rank strangers to me

They've all moved away, said the voice of a stranger
To a beautiful home by the bright crystal sea
Some beautiful day I'll meet them in heaven
where no one will be a stranger to me
CHORUS
