ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU 	   		Dorothy Skaggs	

CHORUS (after each verse):

ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU
YOU BROKE A HEART THAT CRIED FOR YOU
I'VE WASTED ALL MY TEARS ON YOU
FOR ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU

GO OUT AND FIND SOMEBODY NEW
BUT YOU'LL BE SORRY IF YOU DO
YOU'LL NEVER FIND A LOVE SO TRUE
FOR ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU

BUY HIM RINGS AND DIAMONDS TOO
AND TELL HIM THAT YOUR LOVE IS TRUE
I'M SURE HE'LL LEARN A LESSON TOO
FOR ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU

TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT I AM GONE
AND I'LL BE SORRY FROM NOW ON
I'LL SPEND MY LIFE ALONE AND BLUE
FOR ALL I EVER LOVED WAS YOU

AMY

I CAN SEE WHY YOU THINK YOU BELONG TO ME
I NEVER TRY TO LET YOU THINK OR LET YOU SEE ONE THING FOR YOURSELF
NOW YOU'RE OFF WITH SOMEONE ELSE AND I'M ALONE
YOU SEE I THOUGHT THAT I MIGHT KEEP YOU FOR MY OWN

CHORUS:	

AMY, WHATCHOO' WANNA' DO
I THINK I CAN STAY WITH YOU
FOR AWHILE, MAYBE LONGER IF I DO   (INTERLUDE)

DON'T YOU THINK THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR US TO FIND
ALL THOSE THINGS WE THOUGHT WERE PROBLEMS
  COULD BE RIGHT IN TIME AND CAN'T Y0U SEE
WHICH WAY WE SHOULD TURN, TOGETHER OR ALONE
I CAN NEVER SEE WHAT'S RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG
IT TAKES TOO LONG   (CHORUS & INTERLUDE)

NOW IT'S COME TO WHAT YOU WANT, YOU'VE HAD YOUR WAY
AND ALL THOSE THINGS WE THOUGHT WERE THERE
  JUST FADED INTO GRAY AND CAN'T YOU SEE
THAT I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S YOU OR IF IT'S ME
IF IT'S ONE OF US I'M SURE WE BOTH WILL SEE
TAKE A LOOK AT ME AND TELL ME   (CHORUS & INTERLUDE)

ANGEL BAND

MY LATEST SUN IS SINKING FAST
MY RACE IS NEARLY RUN
MY STRONGEST TRIALS NOW ARE PAST
MY TRIUMPH HAS BEGUN

CHORUS (after each verse):

OH COME ANGEL BAND
COME AND AROUND ME STAND
BEAR ME AWAY ON YOUR SNOWY WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME
BEAR ME AWAY ON YOUR SNOWY WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME

I KNOW I'M NEARING THE HOLY RANKS
OF FRIENDS AND KINDRED DEAR
FOR I BRUSH THE DEWS ON JORDAN'S BANKS
THE CROSSING MUST BE NEAR

I'VE ALMOST GAINED MY HEAVENLY HOME
MY SPIRIT LOUDLY SINGS
THE HOLY ONES, BEHOLD THEY COME
I HEAR THE NOISE OF WINGS

O BEAR MY LONGING HEART TO HIM
WHO BLED AND DIED FOR ME
WHOSE BLOOD NOW CLEANSES FROM ALL SIN
AND GIVES ME VICTORY

THE ANGELS REJOICED

A HOUSE NOT A HOME WAS THE PICTURE SATAN PAINTED
FOR SWEET LITTLE SISTER AND ME
OUR DADDY WOULD FROWN WHILE MOTHER WAS PRAYIN'
HIS HEART WAS SO HARDENED THAT HE WOULD NOT BELIEVE

CHORUS 1:

IN ANGER HE'D SWEAR, HIS VOICE COLD AND LOUD
HIS SUNDAYS WERE SPENT OUT WITH THE GAMBLIN' CROWD
I'D NEVER SEEN MY DADDY INSIDE A HOUSE OF GOD
FOR SATAN HELD HIS HAND, DOWN THE PATH OF SIN HE TROD

NOT LONG AGO OUR CIRCLE WAS BROKEN
WHEN GOD CALLED OUR MOTHER ONE NIGHT
IN A VOICE SWEET AND LOW HER LAST WORDS WERE SPOKEN
ASKING OUR DADDY TO RAISE HER CHILDREN RIGHT

CHORUS 2:

THE ANGELS REJOICED IN HEAVEN LAST NIGHT
I HEARD MY DADDY PRAYIN' "DEAR GOD MAKE IT RIGHT"
HE WAS SMILIN' AND SINGIN' WITH TEARS IN HIS EYES
WHILE MOTHER WITH THE ANGELS REJOICED LAST NIGHT

ANOTHER NIGHT

THERE'S A WIND A-BLOWIN' ROUND THE CABIN
I HATE TO HEAR THAT LONESOME SOUND
I'M SO ALONE AND DOWN-HEARTED
SINCE MY TRUE LOVE--HE AIN'T AROUND

CHORUS (after each verse):

I HATE TO SEE THAT SUN A-SINKIN'
ANOTHER NIGHT TO TOSS AND TURN
ANOTHER NIGHT TO THINK ABOUT HER
ANOTHER NIGHT FOR HER I YEARN

SHE HAD NO CAUSE TO TO GO AND LEAVE ME
FOR I HAD NEVER DONE HER WRONG
SHE LEFT OUR HOME AND LITTLE CHILDREN
NOW WITH ANOTHER SHE IS GONE

THE CHILDREN, THEY'RE SOUND A-SLEEPIN'
THEY DON'T KNOW THAT THEIR MAMA'S GONE
WHAT WILL I DO WHEN THEY AWAKEN
CAN I TELL THEM THAT THEIR MAMA'S WRONG

ARE YOU MISSING ME

THE DAY THAT I KISSED YOU AND TOLD YOU GOOD-BYE
YOUR LIPS TOLD ME THAT YOU WOULD WAIT
BUT YOUR LIPS DECEIVED ME AND TOLD ME A LIE
FOR YOUR HEART IS SEALING MY FATE

CHORUS (after each verse):

ARE YOU ALL ALONE WITH A MEMORY
NOW THAT I AM GONE, DARLING, ARE YOU MISSING ME

WHEN OUT OF THE CLEAR SKY A LETTER THAT CAME
JUST LIKE A BOLT FROM THE BLUE
MY CASTLES CAME TUMBLING AS I READ IT O'ER
I STILL CAN BELIEVE THAT IT'S TRUE

IT SAID THAT IN SPITE OFTHE VOWS YOU HAD MADE
THE GLITTER OF GOLD TURNED YOUR HEAD
AND WHILE I WAS TRYING EMPLOYMENT TO FIND
YOU MARRIED ANOTHER INSTEAD

HAS GONE OUT TO MY SURPRISE
WE SAID GOODBYE, MY HEART BLED
I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR LOVE IS DEAD

CHORUS (after each verse):

ASHES OF LOVE, COLD AS ICE
YOU MADE THE DEBT, I'LL PAY THE PRICE
OUR LOVE IS GONE, THERE'S NO DOUBT
ASHES OF LOVE, THE FLAMES BURNED OUT

YOUR EVERY WISH WAS MY COMMAND
MY HEART TELLS ME I MUST FORGET
I LOVED YOU THEN, I LOVE YOU YET

BALLAD OF JED CLAMPET

COME AND LISTEN TO MY STORY 'BOUT A MAN NAMED JED
POOR MOUNTAINEER BARELY KEPT HIS FAMILY FED

FIRST THING YOU KNOW OLD JED'S A MILLIONAIRE

SO HE LOADED UP THE TRUCK AND THEY MOVED TO BEVERLY...
HILLS, THAT IS--SWIMMIN' POOLS AND MOVIE STARS

WELL, NOW IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO JED AND ALL HIS KIN
THEY WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOLKS FOR KINDLY DROPPIN' IN
YOU'RE ALL INVITED BACK AGAIN TO THIS LOCALITY
TO HAVE A HEAPIN' HELPIN' OF THEIR HOSPITALITY

BANKS OF THE OHIO

I ASKED MY LOVE TO TAKE A WALK
JUST A WALK A LITTLE WAY
AS WE WALKED ALONG WE TALKED
ALL ABOUT OUR WEDDING DAY 

CHORUS (after each verse):

ALWAYS SAY THAT YOU'LL BE MINE
IN NO OTHER'S ARMS ENTWINE
   (or) AND OUR HOME WILL HAPPY BE
DOWN BESIDE WHERE THE WATERS FLOW
ON THE BANKS OF THE OHIO

I HELD A KNIFE CLOSE TO HER BREAST
AS INTO MY ARMS SHE PRESSED
SHE CRIED, "OH WILLIE, DON'T MURDER ME,
I'M NOT PREPARED FOR ETERNITY."

I TOOK HER BY HER LILLY WHITE HAND
AND LED HER DOWN THAT BANK OF SAND
THERE I THREW HER INTO DROWN
I WATCHED HER AS SHE FLOATED DOWN

I STARTED HOME 'TWEEN TWELVE AND ONE
I CRIED "MY GOD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?"
I KILLED THE GIRL I LOVED, YOU SEE
BECAUSE SHE WOULD NOT MARRY ME

THE VERY NEXT MORN 'BOUT HALF PAST FOUR
THE SHERIFF CAME KNOCKIN' AT MY DOOR
HE SAID "YOUNG MAN, COME NOW AND GO
DOWN TO THE BANKS OF THE OHIO"

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE

EACH DAY I'LL DO A GOLDEN DEED
BY HELPING THOSE WHO ARE IN NEED
MY LIFE ON EARTH IS BUT A SPAN
AND SO I'LL DO THE BEST I CAN

CHORUS (after each verse):

LIFE'S EVENING SUN IS SINKING LOW
A FEW MORE DAYS AND I MUST GO
TO MEET THE DEEDS THAT I HAVE DONE
WHERE THERE WILL BE NO SETTING SUN

TO BE A CHILD OF GOD EACH DAY
MY LIGHT WILL SHINE ALONG THE WAY
I'LL SING HIS PRAISE WHILE THE AGES ROLL
AND TRY TO HELP SOME TROUBLED SOUL

WHILE GOING DOWN LIFE'S WEARY ROAD
I'LL TRY TO LIFT SOME TRAVELER'S LOAD
I'LL TRY TO TURN THE NIGHT TO DAY
MAKE FLOWERS BLOOM ALONG THE WAY

MULEY AS WHEN BORN
IT TOOK TWO JAY BIRDS FORTY YEARS
TO FLY FROM HORN TO HORN

BLUE RIDGE CABIN HOME

THERE'S A WELL BEATEN PATH ON AN OLD MOUNTAINSIDE
WHERE I WANDERED WHEN I WAS A LAD
WELL I WANDERED ALONE IN A PLACE I CALL HOME
IN THOSE BLUE RIDGE HILLS FAR AWAY

CHORUS (after each verse):

WELL, I LOVE THOSE HILLS OF OLD VIRGINIA
THOSE BLUE RIDGE HILLS THAT I DID ROAM
WHEN I DIE I WANT YOU TO BURY ME IN THE MOUNTAINS
FAR AWAY IN MY BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN HOME

WHERE I WANDERED WHEN I WAS A LAD
MY MOTHER AND DAD ARE LAID THERE TO REST
THEY ARE SLEEPING IN PEACE THERE TONIGHT

I RETURNED TO THAT OLD CABIN HOME WITH THE SIGHT
THAT I'D LONGED FOR IN DAYS GONE BY
WHEN I DIE I WANT YOU TO BURY ME ON THAT OLD MOUNTAINSIDE
MAKE MY RESTING PLACE UPON THE HILLS SO HIGH

	YOUR LOVE WOULD LAST FOREVER MORE
TOOK ME BY SURPRISE WHEN YOU
	UP AND WALKED RIGHT OUT THE DOOR
I'VE BEEN SUFFERIN' THROUGH THIS DRY SPELL

WELL, THE ONLY THING YOU LEFT WHEN YOU LEFT ME WAS NO CHOICE

WELL, I'M FINDIN' OUT THAT I CAN LIVE WITHOUT YOU BY MY SIDE
THE GRASS IS GROWIN' GREENER SLOWLY AS THE DAYS GO BY
SOMEWHERE I'LL FIND SOMEONE TO HELP ME
	TEAR DOWN THESE OLD WALLS
YEAH, I'LL BUILD MY LIFE ON SOLID LOVE AND RISE ABOVE IT ALL
AND THE ONLY WAY THAT TRUE LOVE CAN BE FOUND

WHERE THEY CAMPED ON THE FLATS FOR THE NIGHT
AND THE MOON SHINING DOWN O'ER THE OLD CANYON RIM
THEY WATCHED FOR THAT BROWN MOUNTAIN LIGHT

CHORUS:

AND DEEP IN THE CANYON BELOW

AND FADES AS THE MIST COMES AND GOES
WAY OVER YONDER
NIGHT AFTER NIGHT UNTIL DAWN

SEARCHIN', SEARCHIN', SEARCHIN'
FOR IS MASTER WHO'S LONG GONE ON

MANY YEARS AGO A SOUTHERN PLANTER
CAME HUNTIN' IN THIS WIDE WORLD ALONE
IT WAS THEN SO THEY SAY THE THE PLANTER LOST HIS WAY
AND NEVER RETURNED TO HIS OWN

AND SEARCHED DAY AND NIGHT BUT IN VAIN
NOW THE ALD SLAVE IS GONE BUT HIS SPIRIT ON

FOR THE ONLY ONE I LOVE
WHEN SHALL I SEE HER, OH NO NEVER

OH BURY ME BENEATH THE WILLOW

UNTIL THE ANGEL SOFTLY WHISPERED
SHE WILL PROVE UNTRUE TO YOU

TOMORROW WAS TO BE OUR WEDDING
WHERE, OH LORD, WHERE IS SHE
SHE'S GONE, SHE'S GONE TO LOVE ANOTHER
AND SHE NO LONGER CARES FOR ME
