PICK ME UP ON YOUR WAY DOWN
by Martina McBride

You were mine for just a while,
Now you're puttin' on the style
And you've never once looked back
At your home across the track.
You're the gossip of the town
But my heart can still be found
Where you tossed it to the ground.
Pick me up on your way down.
Pick me up on your way down,
When you're blue and all alone
When their glamor starts to bore you,
Come on back where you belong.
You may be their pride and joy,
But they'll find another toy
And they'll take away your crown,
Pick me up on your way down.
They have changed your attitude,
Made you haughty and so rude,
Your new friends can take the blame,
Underneath you're still the same.
When you learn these things are true
I'll be waiting here for you,
As you tumble to the ground
Pick me up on your way down.

SET EM UP JOE
by Vern Gosdin

They got a vintage Victrola 1951
Full of my favorite records that I grew up on
They got ole Hank and Lefty and there's B24
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

I'm gonna spend the night like every night before
Playin' E.T. and I'll play 'em some more
I've gotta have a shot of them old troubadours
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

All my neon neighbors they like what I play
'Cause they've heard it every night since you've walked away
Every day they replace old B24
'Cause every night I run a needle through "Walking The Floor"
Every night I run a needle through "Walking The Floor"

I'm gonna spend the night like every night before
Playin' E.T. I'm gonna play 'em some more
I've gotta have a shot of them old troubadours
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

I said "Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

WALKING THE FLOOR OVER YOU
by Ernest Tubb

You left me and you went away
You said that you'd be back in just a day
That day has come and gone but you're still away from home
I'm walking the floor over you

I'm walking the floor over you
I can't sleep a wink that is true
I'm hoping and I'm praying as my heart breaks right in two
Walking the floor over you

Now darling, you know I love you well
I love you more than I can ever tell
I thought you would love me and you always would be mine
You went away and left me here with troubles on my mind

I'm walking the floor over you
I can't sleep a wink that is true
I'm hoping and I'm praying as my heart breaks right in two
Walking the floor over you

I'M NO STRANGER TO THE RAIN
by Keith Whitley
I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm a friend of thunder
Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me
I've fought with the devil
Got down on his level
But I never gave in, so he gave up on me
I'm no stranger to the rain
I can spot bad weather
And I'm good at finding shelter in a downpour
I've been sacrificed by brothers
Crucified by lovers
But through it all I withstood the pain
I'm no stranger to the rain
But when I get that foggy feeling
When I'm feeling down
If I don't keep my head up, I may drown
But it's hard to keep believing
I'll even come out even
While the rain beats your hope in the ground
And tonight it's really coming down
I'm no stranger to the rain
But there'll always be tomorrow
And I'll beg, steal, or borrow a little sunshine
And I'll put this cloud behind me
That's how the 'man' designed me
To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
I'm no stranger to the rain
Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm a friend of thunder
Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me
But I'll put this cloud behind me
That's how the 'man' designed me
To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
I'm no stranger to the rain
Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain
LUCKENBACH TEXAS
by Waylon Jennings

The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin' women
I don't need my name in the marquee lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newberry's train songs and Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby, let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society you cry all day
We've been so busy keepin' up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin' got us feudin'
Like the Hatfield and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newberry's train songs and Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain

STATUE OF A FOOL
by Ricky Van Shelton

Somewhere there should be
For all the world to see
A statue of a fool
Made of stone
The image of a man
Who let love
Slip through his hands
And then
Just let him stand there
All alone
And they're on his face
A gold tear
Should be placed
To honor the million
Tears he's cried
And the hurt in his eyes
It will show
So everyone will know
That concealed is
A broken heart inside
So build me a statue
And lord build it high
So that all can see
Then inscribe
The worlds greatest fool
And name it after me

COUNTRY BUMPKIN
by Cal Smith

He walked into the bar and parked his lanky frame upon a tall barstool
With a long soft Southern drawl said
"I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool"
A bar room girl with hard and knowing eyes slowly looked him up and down
And she thought "I wonder how on earth
That country bumpkin found his way to town"
She said "Hello, country bumpkin"
"How's the frost out on the pumpkin?"
"I've seen some sights but, man, you're somethin'"
"Where'd ya come from, country bumpkin?"
It was just a short year later in a bed of joy-filled tears yet death-like pain
Into this wondrous world of many wonders one more wonder came
That same woman's face was wrapped up
In a raptured look of love and tenderness
As she marveled at the soft and warm and cuddly boy-child feeding at her breast
And she said "Hello, country bumpkin"
"Fresh as frost out on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights but, babe, you're somethin'"
"Mama loves her country bumpkin"
Forty years of hard work later in a simple, quiet and peaceful country place
The heavy hand of time had not erased
The raptured wonder from the woman's face
She was lying on her deathbed knowing fully well her race was nearly run
But she softly smiled and looked into the sad eyes of her husband and her son
And she said "So long, country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights and life's been somethin'"
"See you later, country bumpkin"
She said "So long, country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights and life's been somethin'"
