A Real Good Place To Start – George Strait

(Dean Dillon/Gary Nicholson)

Still reelin’ from a relationship
That left me torn in two
Tryin’ to find that first step
That leads to someone new
Gettin’ me back together
Didn’t know it could be so hard
But if I’m ever gonna mend this broken heart
You look like a real good place to start

I need a new beginning
And girl you fit right in
Sometimes a new beginning
Is found in an old friend
If I’m ever gonna mend this broken heart
You look like a real good place to start

There’ve been times when you and him
Just couldn’t get along
I’d hear your knock and let you in
Be your shoulder to cry on
And now he’s finally left you
And I’ve find you in my arms
If I’m ever gonna mend this broken heart
You look like a real good place to start

I need a new beginning
And girl you fit right in
Sometimes a new beginning
Is found in an old friend
If I’m ever gonna mend this broken heart
You look like a real good place to start

If I’m ever gonna mend this broken heart
You look like a real good place to start

A Love Without End – George Strait

I got sent home from school one day
With a shiner on my eye
Fighting was against the rules
And it didn’t matter why
When dad got home I told the story
Just like I’d rehearsed
And then stood there on my trembling knees
And waited for the worst

(Chorus)
(He said/I said), “Let me tell you a secret
About a father’s love
A secret that my daddy said
Was just between us
He said, daddies don’t just love their children
Every now and then
It’s a love without end, amen
It’s a love without end, amen.”

When I became a father
In the spring of ’81
There was no doubt that stubborn boy
Was just like my father’s son
And when I thought my patience
Had been tested to the end
I took my daddy’s secret
And I passed it on to him

(Repeat chorus)

Last night I dreamed I’d died
And stood outside those pearly gates
And suddenly, I realized
There must be some mistake
If they know half the things I’ve done
They’ll never let me in
And a voice spoke from the other side
And I heard those words again

(Repeat chorus)

A Little Heaven’s Rubbing Off On Me – George Strait

(John Scott Sherrill/Gene Dobbins)

I used to like
Making love then
Getting up
And never having to explain
I’ve always been free
I never could see me
Dragin’ no ball and chain
I like running around
And being tied down
Never was my cup of tea
But since I’ve been holding an angel
A little heaven’s rubbing off on me

And I’m beginning to like just sittin’ and holding hands
Looking into her eyes I’m thinking about future plans
And then I get the feeling that the life that I’d been leading ain’t all
it’s
cracked up to be
Since I’ve been holding an angel
A little heaven’s rubbing off on me

I used like
To spend the night
Sittin’ on an old bar stool
Drinkin’ wine and killing time
With all over those other fools
But since you took my hand
I think I understand
It ain’t the way it outta be
Since I’ve been holding an angel
A little heaven’s rubbing off on me

And I’m beginning to like just sittin’ and holding hands
Looking into her eyes I’m thinking about future plans
And then I get the feeling that the life that I’d been leading ain’t all
it’s
cracked up to be
Since I’ve been holding an angel
A little heaven’s rubbing off on me

Since I’ve been holding an angel
A little heaven’s rubbing off on me

A Fire I Can’t Put Out – George Strait

(Darryl Staedtler)

I’m finding out how hot
An old flame can burn
You’re a feeling I haven’t forgot
The love I can’t unlearn
You’ve become a memory
I can’t live without
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out

I don’t know how to handle
The dream you left behind
It’s like a lighted candle
Burning up my mind
At least I’m happy knowing
What love is all about
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out

Embers to ashes
That’s how it should be
You’d think by know my heart would know
And it could set you free
The things I’ve tried
The tears I’ve cried
I guess there’s no doubt
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out

I don’t know how to handle
The dream you left behind
It’s like a lighted candle
Burning up my mind
At least I’m happy knowing
What love is all about
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out

80 Proof Bottle Of Tear Stopper – George Strait

(Darryl Staedtler)

You ain’t never fell as far as when you fall in love
Except the fall you take when you’ve been loved and given up
When you have your heart and soul rubbed into the dirt
An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper will take away the hurt

Give me an 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper
And I’ll start feeling I forgot her
Get a little loose and lose her memory
And I won’t think I’m close to dying
Because it dries up all my crying
An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper always sets me free

It ain’t easy losing love although it’s turned out bad
All at once you’re turning off old feelings you once had
But I found a helping hand right here in my hand
And 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper will help me take ’em out

Give me an 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper
And I’ll start feeling I forgot her
Get a little loose and lose her memory
And I won’t think I’m close to dying
Because it dries up all my crying
An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper always sets me free

4 Minus 3 Equals Zero – George Strait

(Lonnie Williams)

You always said you love me
And I always believed you did
But now you’re sayin’ you’re leavin’
And takin’ both of the kids

Well 4 minus 3 equals zero
You’re leavin’ just don’t add up
It’s all over for me if you go
‘Cause I’ll be nothing without your love

The babies are sleepin’ in the bedroom
They don’t know your packin’ their clothes
At least they didn’t see me cryin’
When you said that’s the way love goes

Well 4 minus 3 equals zero
You’re leavin’ just don’t add up
It’s all over for me if you go
‘Cause I’ll be nothing without your love
4 minus 3 equals zero
‘Cause I’ll be nothing without your love

Ocean Front Property – George Strait

(Dean Dillon/Hank Cochran/Royce Porter)

If you leave me, I won’t miss you,
And I won’t ever take you back.
Girl, your mem?ry won’t ever haunt me
‘Cause I don’t love you, and now if you’ll buy that.

I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
From my front porch you can see the sea.
I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the golden gate in free.

I don’t worship the ground you walk on.
I never have and that’s a fact.
I won’t follow or try to find you
‘Cause I don’t love you, and now if you’ll buy that.

I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
From my front porch you can see the sea.
I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the golden gate in free.

Yeah, if you’ll buy that I’ll throw the golden gate in free.

I Ain’t Never Seen No One Like You – George Strait

(Roger Springer/Bruce Bouton/Mark Chesnutt)

I’ve traveled through lots of places
Seen lots of folks and lots of faces
Even settled down a time or two
I’ve worked the farms, I’ve been to town
Guess you could say I’ve been around
But I ain’t never seen no one like you

I can tell by your smile you don’t believe a word I say
You’re thinkin’ I’ll just stay awhile then be on my way
But girl I think it’s far to warn ya
I’ve done been to California
I ain’t never seen no one like you

I knew a girl in Mississippi
Had twenty different ways to kiss me
Never found a thing she couldn’t do
Hey I even knew some twins in Denver
Stayed with them one cold December
I ain’t never seen no one like you

I can tell by your smile you don’t believe a word I say
You’re thinkin’ I’ll just stay awhile then be on my way
But girl I think it’s far to warn ya
I’ve done been to California
I ain’t never seen no one like you

East to west north to south
You’re the very best girl there ain’t no doubt
I’m tellin’ you you’re really somethin’
The way you got my heart a jumpin’
I ain’t never seen no one like you

I can tell by your smile you don’t believe a word I say
You’re thinkin’ I’ll just stay awhile then be on my way
But girl I think it’s far to warn ya
I’ve done been to California
I ain’t never seen no one like you

Hey girl I think it’s far to warn ya
I’ve done been to California
But I ain’t never seen no one like you
Ah yeah

Baby Blue – George Strait

(Aaron Barker)

She looked so much like a lady, but she was so much like a child.
A devil when she held me close, an angel when she smiled.
She always held it deep inside, but somehow I always knew
She’s go away when the grass turned green
And the sky turned baby blue.

And baby blue was the color of her eyes.
Baby blue like the Colorado skies.
Like a breath of spring, she came and left,
And I still don’t know why,
So here’s to you and whoever holds my baby blue tonight.

She brought colors to my life that my eyes had never touched.
And when she taught me how to care, I never cared so much.
I try not to think of her, but I fall asleep and do,
And drift off where the grass is green and the sky is baby blue.

And baby blue was the color of her eyes.
Baby blue like the Colorado skies.
Like a breath of spring, she came and left,
And I still don’t know why,
So here’s to you and whoever holds my baby blue tonight.

And baby blue was the color of her eyes.
Baby blue like the Colorado skies.
Like a breath of spring, she came and left,
And I still don’t know why,
So here’s to you and whoever holds my baby blue tonight.
