What I Say What I Say


Crying Time

by Buck Owens, from Crying Time, 1966
Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin' Oooh
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder (fonder)
And that tears are only rain to make love grow
Well my love for you could never grow no stronger (stronger)
If I lived to be a hundred years old

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Yeah now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now you say you've found someone that you love better (better)
That's the way it's happened every time before
And as sure as the sun comes up tomorrow ('morrow)
Cryin' time will start when you walk out the door

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Alright now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time
(That it won't be long before it's cryin' time)

Georgia On My Mind

by Hoagy Carmichael/Stuart Gorrell, from Genius Hits The Road, 1960
Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Talkin' 'bout Georgia
I'm in Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Georgia, sweet Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back
It always leads back to you
I'm in Georgia, Georgia, sweet Georgia
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind
Just an old sweet, sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind

I Can't Stop Loving You

by Don Gibson, from Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music,V2 1962
(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Dreams of yesterday)
Those happy hours that we once knew
Tho' long ago, they still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we've been apart
(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memories of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Those happy hours)
Those happy hours
(That we once knew)
That we once knew
(Tho' long ago)
Tho' long ago
(Still make me blue)
Still ma-a-a-ake me blue
(They say that time)
They say that time
(Heals a broken heart)
Heals a broken heart
(But time has stood still)
Time has stood still
(Since we've been apart)
Since we've been apart
(I can't stop loving you)
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times

(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life of dreams of yesterday
(Of yesterday)

Lonely Avenue

by Ray Charles/Doc Pomus
Now my room has got two windows,
But the sunshine never comes through.
You know it's a-always dark and dreary,
Since I broke up, baby, with you.
I live on a-Lonely Avenue,
My little girl wouldn't say, "I do."
Well, I feel so sad and blue,
And it's a-all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, I could cry,
Oh, I could die, I could die, I could die,
Cause I live on Lonely Avenue, whoa, yes sir.

Now, you know my covers they feel like leather,
And my pillow it feels like stone.
Well, I toss and turn so every night,
I'm not a-used to being alone.
I live on a-Lonely Avenue,
My little girl wouldn't say, "I do."
Well, I feel so sad and blue,
You know it's a-all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, I could cry,
Oh, I could die, I could die, I could die,
Cause I live on a-Lonely Avenue, yes sir.

Now, I've been so sad and lonesome,
A-since you left this town.
You know if I could beg or borrow her money,
Chile, I woulda be highway bound.
I live on a-Lonely Avenue,
My little girl wouldn't say, "I do."
Well, I feel so sad and blue,
You know it's a-all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, I could cry,
Oh, I could die, I could die, I could die,
Yeah, I live on Lonely Avenue, whoa Avenue.
