Jack does his dance at night
Leaving Frost for April to find
Sparkling in early morning sun..
A little part of spring
Left over from winter

Comin’ home to play

You better be ready to hold me tight
I’ve been thinking all day about tonight
I’ve done my duty I worked all day
Your old man is coming home to play

There’s a fire burnin’ in your old man
Gonna last all night so darling’ here’s the plan
You be ready when I get home
We’re gonna spend some time alone

All day long I’ve been thinking of you
Doing me the way I’ve known you to do
Won’t be long babe I’m on my way
Your old man is coming home to play

Lets go out to dinner
And a movie show
Or stay home together
With the lights down low
Leave the phone off the hook
And the chain on the door
Or we can take off in the Chevy
And park close to the shore..
Ive got this burnin’ burnin’
Deep down in my soul
This night can last forever
If we take it slow
All day long I’ve been thinking of you
Doing me the way I know you to do
Won’t be long, I’m on my way
Your old man is coming home to play

Habits

Just when I kicked the habit

Of drinking alcohol

Just when I gave up smoking

You decided to call..

Why the hell did I buy

This pack of cigarettes

To smoke before the night is through

Why am I drinkin’

Just to keep from thinkin’

That I’ll never kick the habit of you…

All night I’ve been chain smokin’

And drunkin’ myself sober

Cause baby your a habit

This old man can’t get over..

You’ve been gone such a long time

Everything started  feeling so fine

That’s when I gave up smokin’

And I gave up alcohol

Just when I kicked old habits

You decided to call..

Why the hell did I buy

This pack of cigarettes

To smoke before the night is through

Why am I drinkin’ to keep from thinkin’

I will never kick the habit of you..

A little less

Out on county road 13

Tommy raised a extra cow

And there’s a church up in the hollow

Feeding it to the poor right now

Tommys feeling guilty

About all that’s left for him

But Tommys on the right path

He gave he’ll give again

Tommy said:

I could do a little more

Stretch anouther  dollar bill

To feed the hungry,help the poor

I could do a little less for the man at my address

A little less can do a whole lot more….

Hazel up on main street

Makes quilts she sells a few

All her kid as and grandkids help out too

And for every one she sells

She gives one to the shelter

The shelter down on 2nd avenue..

Hazels feeling guilty

Keeping her best quilts to sell

But Hazels on the right road

She gave and their giving now..

We could all do a little more

Stretch About her dollar bill

And feed the hungry help the poor

We could do a little less for the one at our address

A little less can do a whole lot more…

Yes a little less can do a whole lot more…

It ain’t easy

On a dark and starless night
A baby boy was born
His mama threw him in a trash bin
In the midst of a winter storm
Tho he survived the stab wounds
Ment to take his life away
He will live with the scars
And he’ll know the truth someday

Chorus:Lord it ain’t easy
Living in this world today
Lord it ain’t easy
Finding the right words to say
When I pray

Bless the hungry and the homeless

Bless the victims of crimes

Bless the tired and the weary

Standing in hand out lines.

Bless the working poor

And souls that went astray

Bless the tiny children Lord

Lead us to a better way

repeat chorus:

The rich man and the poor man
The beggars and the thieves
Are All praying for enlightenment
All telling God their needs
How do we stop the hunger
The wars and poverty
As one by one we bow our heads
And one by one we agree
That lord it ain’t easy
Living in the world today
Lord it ain’t easy
Finding the right words
to say when I pray..
