A Memory Like I’m Gonna Be – Tanya Tucker

(Jerry Laseter/Roger Murrah)

I can hear you smilin’ on the ‘phone.
Bet you thought that I’d be cryin’.
Go on, tell yourself I done you wrong.
But we both know you’d be lyin’.
We don’t have to have a reason,
If your heart is set on leavin’.

To remember on some rainy day,
A little simple word or thought,
Or a birthday card I bought.
Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away,
You never can be free,
From a memory like I’m gonna be.

That greener grass you think you see:
Hah, is just a high-heeled illusion.
Better count the cost of bein’ free,
Is it worth all that you’re losin’?
It may be over, but it’s not ending.
‘Cause there’s one thing you’re forgetting.

An’ you’ll remember on some rainy day,
The little things we used to do,
Like that night in Baton Rouge.
Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away,
You never can be free,
From a memory like I’m gonna be.

When it all comes back someday,
You’ll be surprised on some lonely night.
When you close your eyes.

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away,
You never can be free,
From a memory like I’m gonna be.

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

(From a memory.)

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away,
You never can be free,
From a memory like I’m gonna be.

San Antonio Stroll – Tanya Tucker

(Peter Noah)

When I was a child down in South Caroline
Soon as Saturday sun went on down.
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone,
Going to that big square dance in town.
Well my old radio would play that old opry show,
So I never got lonesome or blue.
I’d fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there,
Just singing the whole night through.
When my folks would come home, they’d be humming a song,
Mama’d smile and say: “Child, don’t you know,
“There ain’t a thing in this world to make you fall in love girl,
“Like the San Antonio Stroll?”

Well the day finally come when my mama said: “Hun,
“It’s ’bout time you came with us as well.”
Well, I had me a time, yes, I danced all the night,
‘Til they rang that ol’ cracked-midnight bell.
Then the lights went down low, the fiddler picked up his bow,
And he played something stately and slow.
And my sister Eileen and her husband-to-be,
They held hands and began to stroll.
I’ve been away for a while, but it still brings a smile,
When I think of the way that it goes.
Now I’ll sing it to you just so we both can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Yes, I’ll sing it to you just so we all can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Half The Moon – Tanya Tucker

Half the moon is shining tonight
And half the moon is pitch black
And I got half the chance that you might
Turn around and come back
Half my love has seen the light
And half my love is still blind
It keeps on thinking tomorrow
You’ll change your mind

Half our hearts were doing just fine
And half our hearts were in doubt
And half the time while walking the line
I ended up steppin’ out

Half my prayers were praying to God
And half my prayers were to you
Tonight it looks like
The answers are overdue

And I’m feeling just how hard
Half the moon can fool
I swear my heart might crack in two
If that moon were full
Half the moon is shining tonight
And half the moon’s up and gone
You must have taken half of it’s life
To find the road that you’re on

Half my love has seen the truth
And half my love is still blind
It makes that missin’ half the moon
Hard to find
Oh

It makes that missin’ half the moon
Hard to find

Tanya Tucker – Daddy And Home

(Jimmy Rodgers)

I am dreaming, tonight, of an old southern town,
And the best friend that I ever had.
For I’ve grown so weary of roaming around,
And I’m going home to my Dad.

Your hair has turned to silver,
And I know you’re failing too.
Daddy, dear, oh, Daddy,
I’m coming back to you.
You made my childhood happy,
But still I longed to roam.
I’ve had my way, but now I’ll say,
I long for you and for home.

Dear Daddy, you shared all my sorrows and joys;
You tried hard to bring me up right.
I know you’ll still be one of the boys.
I’m starting back home tonight.

Your hair has turned to silver,
And I know you’re failing too.
Daddy, dear, oh, Daddy,
I’m coming back to you.
You made my childhood happy,
But still I longed to roam.
I’ve had my way, but now I’ll say,
I long for you and for home.

I’ve had my way, but now I’ll say,
I long for you and for home.

A Blue Guitar – Tanya Tucker

It’s after midnight – you lie awake
Counting the hours till daybreak
What can you do now, where can you go
When you’re about at the end of your rope
You can…
Drive out to the edge of town
Where the world is cold and dark
Look for the flicker of a neon sign
In the shape of a broken heart
You’ll hear music that will give you chills
Coming from that run down bar
You can slow dance with the ghost of love
To the cry – of a blue guitar

Drive out to the edge of town
Where the world is cold and dark
Look for the flicker of a neon sign
In the shape of a broken heart
You’ll hear music that will give you chills
Coming from that run down bar
You can slow dance with the ghost of love
To the cry – of a blue guitar

It’s where the lonely people go
When they just can’t take no more
You’ll see what heartache is all about
And you can cry till you’re cried out
When you…

Drive out to the edge of town
Where the world is cold and dark
Look for the flicker of a neon sign
In the shape of a broken heart
You’ll hear music that will give you chills
Coming from that run down bar
You can slow dance with the ghost of love
To the cry – of a blue guitar

You’ll hear music that will give you chills
Coming from that run down bar
You can slow dance with the ghost of love
To the cry – of a blue guitar
