mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Clint Black - Killin' Time Lyrics   You were the first thing that I thought of When I thought I drank you off my mind When I get lost in the liquor You're the only one I find And if I did the things I oughta You still would not be mine   So I'll keep a tight grip on the bottle Gettin' loose and killin' time This killin' time is killin' me Drinking myself blind thinkin' I won't see That if I cross that line and they bury me I just might find I'll be killin' time for eternity   I don't know nothin' 'bout tomorrow I've been lost in yesterday I've spent all my life just dying For a love that passed away And if there's an end to all my sorrow And this is the only price I'll pay I'll be a happy man when I go And I can't wait another day   Repeat chorus

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Melba Montgomery - No Charge Lyrics   My little boy came into the kitchen this evening While I was fixing supper And he handed me a piece of paper he'd been writing on And after wiping my hands on my apron I read it - and this is what it said   For mowing the yard - five dollars And for making my own bed this week - one dollar And for going to the store - fifty cents An' playing with little brother, while you went shopping Twenty-five cents Taking out the trash - one dollar Getting a good report card - five dollars And for raking the yard - two dollars Total owed - fourteen seventy-five   Well, I looked at I'm standing there expectantly And a thousand memories flashed through my mind So I picked up the pen, turning the paper over This is what I wrote:   For nine months I carried you Growing inside me - no charge For the nights I've sat up with you Doctored you, prayed for you - no charge For the time and the tears And the cost through the years, there's no charge When you add it all up The full cost of my love is no charge   For the nights filled with dread And the worries ahead - no charge For advice and the knowledge And the cost of your college - no charge For the toys, food and clothes and for wiping your nose There's NO CHARGE, son When you add it all up The full cost of my love, is - charge   Well, when he finished readin' He had great big old tears in his eyes And he looked up at me and he said "Mama, I sure do love you." Then he took the pen And in great big letters He wrote: "Paid in full."   When you add it all up The cost of real love is - no charge

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Johnny Cash – Daddy Sang Bass Lyrics   I remember when I was a lad, times were hard and things were bad. But there’s a silver lining behind every cloud. Just poor people, that’s all we were. Trying to make a living out of black land dirt. We’d get together in a family circle singing loud.   Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor. Me and little brother would join right in there. Singing seems to help a troubled soul. One of these days and it won’t be long. I’ll rejoin them in a song. I’m gonna join the family circle at the Throne. No, the circle won’t be broken. By and by, Lord, by and by.   Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor. Me and little brother would join right in there. In the sky, Lord, in the sky.   Now I remember after work, Mama would call in all of us. You could hear us singing for a country mile. Now little brother has done gone on. But, I’ll rejoin him in a song. We’ll be together again up yonder in a little while.   Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor. Me and little brother would join right in there. Cause singing seems to help a troubled soul. One of these days and it won’t be long, I’ll rejoin them in a song. I’m gonna join the family circle at the Throne. Oh, no the circle won’t be broken. By and by, Lord, by and by.   Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor. Me and little brother would join right in there. In the sky, Lord, in the sky. In the sky, Lord, in the sky.
