Dadgummit 02:50
I can eat crackers in my bed if I want to Stay up all night.. watching TV I don’t mind the dirty clothes, I just keep my closet door closed Since my baby walked out on me. I could hit the night-spots, I could go crazy Sail off to Bimini … I’m as free as a breeze I don’t have to stay at home, I love sitting here alone Since my baby walked out on me chorus But Dadgummit, I still love her I just can’t stop thinking of her And I can’t deny, I was wrong Can’t eat. can’t sleep since my baby’s gone bridge I bet the boys down at Joe’s would come unglued To see a grown man on his knees But I’d crawl from here to Timbuktu To give my baby one more chance with me She said she found a new diet plan It calls for her to lose a man My life’s sugar free since my baby walked out on me solo chorus But Dadgummit, I still love her I ain’t never, never, never gonna find another Peaches and Cream… she was my dream My baby walked right out on ... My baby walked right out on me Oh, my baby…. my baby walked out on me (not him, not them, she still likes men... she just hates ME)

Let her go… say goodbye No excuses, no alibis She’s gone away Against the wishes of my heart Late night…. I lie here and she’s not with me I’m all alone Against the wishes of my heart Chorus My heart don’t speak that language You broke it in two After all the time we spent together Can’t face a day without you Solo Repeat chorus So goodbye Goodbye I’m gonna walk away Against the wishes of my heart…. Against the wishes of my heart

Portales 04:23
You ain’t got no money.. your Visa was declined That’s what the cashier told me She said, “You’re holdin’ up the line” The pretty girl behind me rolled her eyes and shook her head I was diggin’ in my jeans for my last ten dollar bill And I wished that I was dead But that’s life in Portales The only place we’re better than is Dallas That’s life in Goober Gulch God help me please I was there buying beer, she was picking up some cheese And while the cashier was engaged in higher mathematics We began to shoot the breeze She said, “I think I know you… Didn’t you work down at Sears”? I said, “Yeah, but that was when I was in high school… During my first Junior year” That’s life in Portales I told her my favorite team was whoever was playin’ Dallas That’s life in Goober Gulch God help me please. solo She said, “I see you bought some Rolling Rock” “Yes mam, that’s the only brand I drink” I said, “I see you purchased some Velveeta” She said, “You bet I did… Them fancy foreign cheeses STINK” That’s life in Portales Who’d a thunk I’d run into Alice That’s life in Goober Gulch God help me please Now, I got a whole lot a so-called sophisticated friends Who turn their nose up at Rolling Rock And those same damn snobby people Go for cheese that tastes like a week old sock This was a match made in heaven... the best day of my life And come next Christmas morning, I’m gonna make her my third wife Merry Christmas from Portales Even baby Jesus ain’t too keen on Dallas Merry Christmas from me and Alice God help us please Rolling Rock…. Velveeta Cheese

Mostly Mornings when it’s misty Them old grey clouds ridin’ low Hangin’ o’er me, like her sweet memory From not that long ago Mostly Mornings… that’s when it hits me This time she’s really gone away So I tell me lies… drink alibis Just to get me through the day Chorus She begged me to give her one good reason Just one reason to remain All she ever wanted was sunshine All I gave her was rain Solo Repeat chorus Solo Mostly Summers, Mostly Winters Mostly all the time, it seems But Mostly Mornings, that’s when I miss my darlin’ ‘Cause that’s when I’ve just held her in my dreams I’ve just held her in dreams

I’ll Waltz you home, I’ll waltz you home Come to my arms little darlin’ And I’ll waltz you home Here we go dancin’ again we know this old tune by heart We know how this fight’s gonna end the moment it starts One step leads to another as sure as the night leads to day When one of us tries to get closer, the other one dances away Chorus Sometimes when lovers get angry They don’t mean the words that they say When harsh words get spoken it’s too late to take them away Let’s stop the music a minute…. see if we can’t change this song Come to my arms little darlin’ and I’ll waltz you home Chorus Solo Bridge We’re spinnin’ and whirlin’ in danger of losing control But our love is so strong.. it’s lasted so long We’d be fools to let go I don’t want a new partner and I can’t face dancin’ alone So come to my arms little darlin’ and I’ll waltz you home Chorus twice and tag

He loved the game of poker, that's how I knew him best By that time he was older, there was a cloud upon his chest And if he won or lost his expression never changed John was a student of the game He wasn't much of a husband, he was married to his work There were millions who loved him and a precious few he hurt He was a man of vision who saw the world in frames John was a master of the game Chorus And I saw Sierra Madre when I was just a kid Somehow I had to find out how he did the things he did His Red Badge of Courage, his African Queen He taught me about life, casting shadows on a screen No full house was showing the night John Huston died Just faithful Maracella was sitting by his side He found her hand and raised it high A champ at the final bell The last thing John said was "Give 'em Hell" Chorus He loved the game of poker, that's how I knew him best By that time he was older, there was a cloud upon his chest And if he won or lost his expression never changed John was a student of the game
