Captain On A Sailing Ship To Nowhere

I’m the captain on a sailing ship to nowhere
I’ve got nowhere to go in this world
I’m so lonely without my girl

I’ve got no place to call home
I’m tired and so alone
I keep trying to get to you
But there’s nothing I can do
I keep wishing you’d be there
Just waiting at the pier
Waiting for me to come back home

I’m the captain on a sailing ship to nowhere
I’ve got nowhere to go in this world
I’m so lonely without my girl

So many years have gone by
Since I left my baby to cry
I know that I was wrong
But I want to come back home
I’ll do anything for you
I love you, yes I do
So, baby let me come back home

I’m the captain on a sailing ship to nowhere
I’ve got nowhere to go in this world
I’m so lonely without my girl

Do You Know I Love You

Do you know I love you
do you know I really care
Do you know I want you
cause I have a love to share
Every time I think of something
something nice to say to you
It’s because I know you love me too

Now all the girls that come around
wanting to take me on the town
can’t measure up to the beauty of your smile
And they know my heart is true
and it’s waiting just for you
’cause you make me feel as happy as a child

Do you know I love you
do you know I really care
Do you know I want you
cause I have a love to share
Every time I think of something
something nice to say to you
It’s because I know you love me too.

With you I’ll love eternally
as long as your heart lies with me
And I’ll cherish each moment spent with you
As the days move swiftly by
I will look at you and sigh
and thank God that you had love me too

Do you know I love you
do you know I really care
Do you know I want you
cause I have a love to share
Every time I think of something
something nice to say to you
It’s because I know you love me too

Chance To Dream

Living in a world of somber silence
I hear a voice calling out my name
Destiny keeps calling me forward
but all I want is a chance to dream

Now that you have gone away
my life seems an empty stage
On and on pass the endless days
and my heart is filled with passion’s rage

Living in a world of somber silence
I hear a voice calling out my name
Destiny keeps calling me forward
but all I want is a chance to dream

You and I can make it happen
together we could live our dream
But without you I am broken
and reality is just a dream

And all I want is a chance to dream
a chance to dream

Love Is Like

Love is like the cactus flower
that blooms in the sand
A flower that brings beauty
to an empty barren land
Love is like the nightingale
that sings it’s pretty song
A melody so beautiful
that follows us along

Love to me is all of these
but I may never see
You took my love, then went away
leaving loneliness for me

Love is like the mountaintops
that seem so hard to reach
Or maybe like the shifting sands
that are blown around the beach

Love to me is all of these
but I may never see
You took my love, then went away
leaving emptiness for me

Love to me is all of these
from the flower to the sea
Joyful and painful
always changing me
Love is when we use the good
to overcome the bad
To put a smile upon the face
of someone who is sad

Love to me is all of these
but I may never see
You took my love, then went away
leaving loneliness for me
All I have is emptiness
and a heart that longs to be free
All I want is to have you back
to make life beautiful for me.

Job In The City

I tried to find a job in the city
but going place to place was no fun
They told me no experience such a pity
but they need a man who knows how to get things done

I told them all I’d learn if they would teach me
they told me they just couldn’t take the time
I told them I’d try to learn it quickly
but I was told not to waste their time

So now I make my money playing guitar
in honky-tonks and seamy little bars
In hopes that someday someone will find me
and turn me into a big recording star

Life so far has been a big disappointment
things I do just never work out right
But I don’t want to live on unemployment
so I’ll play my songs ’til the early morning light

And now I make my money playing guitar
in honky-tonks and seamy little bars
In hopes that someday someone will find me
and turn me into a big recording star.

Good Old Days

Whatever happened to the good old days
they disappeared in a purple haze
Do you remember the yoyo craze
or playing games like Simon Says

Do you remember when were young
when the twist was number one
At the beach in the summer sun
hula hoops were lots of fun

Nowadays, they’re running wild
you can’t keep up with the latest styles
Things will never be the same
you’ll find love is a computer game.

Do you remember Jimmy Dean
Big Bad John was tall and mean
Man, the girls did really scream
when the Beatles came upon the scene

Nowadays, they’re running wild
you can’t keep up with the latest styles
Things will never be the same
you’ll find love is a computer game.

Whatever happened to Blueberry Hill
watching the stars was such a thrill
Seeing a movie from the very last row
where did all the good times go?

Nowadays, they’re running wild
you can’t keep up with the latest styles
Things will never be the same
you’ll find love is a computer game.

The Dream

The clown was filled with life
as he traveled from town to town
Spreading his joy and happiness
wherever he saw a frown
Journeying one day he happened upon a man
Who had the saddest face of anyone in the land
Why, said he, should it be
that you sit here and cry
I’ve lost all my money and my lands
said the man with a sigh
But money can’t buy happiness
the clown honestly replied
The only joy that you’ll find
is locked deep inside.
So get on your feet and walk with me for a mile
and I’ll show you things to make you smile
So on they walked until they came
to a slow moving stream
And looking down into its bed
the man saw it was a dream
For only one reflection was cast in the stream
All that was said he felt might be true
That happiness is really up to me and you
That living life for gold and silver was no fun
For money cannot buy the sunset when the day is done.

Curse Of The Gun

How many times do we hear of the past
of cowboys and outlaws that rode hard and fast
Of a time when a man had to live by the gun
and sleep on the hard ground when his day was done
The outlaw lived by the speed of his draw
while sheriff’s posses tried to even the score
Another bank robbed and another man dead
another dollar added to the price on his head
He spent his days always on the run
never stopping to rest or cool off his gun
From bank job to train, he hit hard and fast
but the luck of his draw could not last
One day, a young man, so daring and bold
will draw on the outlaw and make his gun cold
They will call him the hero with a cool steady hand
they’ll honor him with cheers and a big brass band
But the curse of the gun will soon take its toll
and a taste for the fast life will make his heart cold
He will rob and kill and run for his life
and never know what it is like to take on a wife
But another young man with a Colt for a gun
will put him to rest under the hot Texas sun
His time at end, but his gun will remain
passed from outlaw to outlaw til there is none left to stain.

The Colt Forty-Five

A legend was born one hot Texas night
when a young man was called to the street for a fight
It started over some words that were said
and ended in the street with a man cold and dead
The rest of his life he’ll spend on the run
to spare himself from another man’s gun
The Colt Forty-Five that smoked in his hand
would soon become famous throughout the land
His name would be echoed from town to town
and his reputation would follow where e’er he’s bound
Every Sheriff, every Marshall from Dodge to Cheyenne
will try to take the life of this man
His life will be ended before the first winter snow
outgunned by a man from the town of Laredo
The gunfighter is dead, but the legend lives on
while his Colt Forty-Five rusts in the ground
While in another town not far away
another young man will a man slay
With a Colt Forty-Five in his hand he will run
hiding and fighting until his life is done.

Christmas Beauty

The sky is filled with snow laden clouds
As carolers sing their songs for the crowds
The snow that was promised has not yet come
and winter scenes are left undone
When all the children gather to sing
you can see the love that Christmas brings
I have yet to see the winter’s grace
when the ground is set in delicate lace
A lace so pretty it makes lovers smile
and they stop to play in the snow for a while
The beauty the snow brings to the land
is the most wonderful part of Nature’s plan
To bring together
young and old
the meek, the daring
the wise and the bold
To gather together for the Christmas meal
to share the joy the angels feel
For on this day so long ago
a babe was born under a stars soft glow
Jesus, the Saviour, was born on this day
heaven sent to show the way.
