mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Mark Chesnutt – Almost Goodbye Lyrics   There was rain on the street last night We stood beneath the front door light And everything we said we made sure the neighbors heard You called me this, I called you that Standing on the welcome mat Everything we felt it all came down to just one word But you couldn’t say it and I couldn’t say it   You know I tried my best to go I know you cried ’cause I hurt you so It should have been easy to say that we were through But to walk away from love was more than we could do It was almost goodbye Almost goodbye   Now there was sun through the blinds this morning When I opened up my eyes Outside I could hear a mockingbird And I could feel your heartbeat as you layed there by my side I thought of how the world could end with just one word But you didn’t say it, and I didn’t say it   You know I tried my best to go I know you cried ’cause I hurt you so It should have been easy to say that we were through But to walk away from love was more than we could do It was almost goodbye Almost goodbye   Sometimes the most important words are the ones that you leave unspoken You know I tried my best to go And I know you cried ’cause I hurt you so It should have been easy to say that we were through But to walk away from love that way was more than we could do It was almost goodbye Almost goodbye, no, I couldn’t say it was Almost goodbye, oh oh Almost goodbye.

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Billy Walker – Charlie’s Shoes Lyrics   I’d like to be in Charlie’s shoes that’s what I always said Cause he had you and everything tied with a golden thread Then Charlie left and went away and when I got the news It wasn’t long till I was walking round in Charlie’s shoes   Now I’m wearing out the shoes that Charlie wore Walking back and forth across the floor The troubles that drove him away I’ve got for company These nights in Charlie’s shoes are killing me   The greener grass that turned my head so swiftly did turn brown Cause every little dream I build she’s always tearing down I never knew old Charlie’s shoes could have so many tacks Of disappointing sorrows and I wish he had ’em back   Cause I’m wearing out the shoes that Charlie wore Walking back and forth across the floor The troubles that drove him away I’ve got for company These nights in Charlie’s shoes are killing me

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Loretta Lynn – Rated X Lyrics   Well if you’ve been a married woman And things didn’t seem to work out Divorce is the key to being loose and free So you’re gonna be talked about Everybody knows that you’ve loved once So they think you’ll love again You can’t have a male friend when you’re a has-been or woman, you’re rated X   And if you’re rated X you’re some kind of goal Every man might try to make But I think it’s wrong to judge every picture If a cheap camera makes a mistake And when your best friend’s husband says to you You’ve sure started lookin’ good You should’ve known he would And he would if he could and he will if you’re rated X   Well nobody knows where you’re going But they sure know where you’ve been All they’re thinking of is your experience of love Their minds eat up with sin The women all look at you like you’re bad and the men all hope you are But if you go too far you’re gonna wear the scar of a woman rated X
