“Standing Knee Deep in a River (Dying of Thirst)” by Kathy Mattea

Friends I could count on, I could count on one hand
With a leftover finger or two
I took ’em for granted, let ’em all slip away
Now where they are I wish I knew

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river and dying of thirst

Sometimes I remember sweethearts I’ve known
Some I’ve forgotten I suppose
One or two still linger, oh, and I wonder now
Why I ever let them go?

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river and dying of thirst

So the sidewalk is crowded, the city goes by
And I rush through another day
And a world full of strangers turn their eyes to me
But I just look the other way

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river and dying of thirst

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river and dying of thirst

“Third Rate Romance” by Sammy Kershaw

Sittin’ in a tiny table in a ritzy restaurant
She was starin’ at her coffee cup
He was tryin’ to keep his courage up
By applyin’ booze

And talk was small when they talked at all
They both knew what they wanted
There was no need to talk about it
They were old enough to scope it out
And keep it loose

She said, “You don’t look like my type
But I guess you’ll do”
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous
And he said, “I’ll even tell you that I love you
If you want me to”
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous

When they left the bar
They got in his car
And they drove away
He drove to the family inn
She didn’t even have to pretend
She didn’t know what for

And he went to the desk
And made his request
While she waited outside
Then he came back with the key
She said, “Give it to me
And I’ll unlock the door”

She kept saying
“I’ve never really done this kind of thing before, have you”
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous
And he said, “Yes I have
But only a time or two”
Third rate romance
Low rent redezvous
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous

“Back 2 Good” by Matchbox Twenty

It’s nothing, it’s so normal you
You just stand there, I could say so much
But I don’t go there ’cause I don’t want to
I was thinking if you were lonely

Maybe we could leave here and no one would know
At least not to the point that we would think so

And everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about
Somebody else
Well, it’s best if we all keep this under our heads
And I couldn’t tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
But I’m lonely now, and I don’t know how
To get it back to good

This don’t mean that, you own me, well
This ain’t no good, in fact it’s phony as hell
Yeah, but things worked out just like you wanted to
If you see me out, you don’t know me
Try to turn your head, try to give me some room
How to figure out just what I’m gonna do

‘Cause everyone here, hates everyone here for doing
Just like they do
And it’s best if we all keep this quiet instead
And I couldn’t tell, why everyone here was doing me like they do
But I’m sorry now, and I don’t know how
To get it back to good

Well everyone here, is wondering what it’s like to be with somebody else
And everyone here’s to blame, and everyone here
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain
Everyone, well everyone here hides
Shades of shame, yeah but looking inside we’re the same
We’re the same and we’re all grown now
Yeah, but we don’t know how
To get it back to good

Well everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking ’bout somebody else
And it’s best if we all keep this under our heads, hell our heads, yeah
See I couldn’t tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
But it’s over now, and I don’t know how, guess it’s over now
There’s no getting back to good

“That’s My Story” by Collin Raye

I came in as the sun came up.
She glared at me over her coffee cup.
She said: “Where you been?” so I thought real hard,
And said: “I fell asleep in that hammock in the yard.”

She said: “You don’t know it boy but you just blew it.”
An’ I said: “Well that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

“That’s my story.
“Oh, that’s my story.
“Well, I ain’t got a witness and I can’t prove it.
“But that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

I got that deer in the headlight look.
She read my face like the cover of a book.
And said: “Don’t expect me to believe all that static,
“”cause just last week, I threw that hammock in the attic.”
My skin got so thin you could see right through it.
And I stuttered: “Well that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

“That’s my story.” (That’s my story.)
“Oh, that’s my story.” (That’s my story.)
“Yeah, I ain’t got a witness and I can’t prove it,
“But that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

You know the time comes when a wise man knows the best thing that he can do
Is just look her in the eye and beg for mercy and face the bitter truth.

“Well honey, me and the boys played cards all night,
“There wasn’t no hanky panky, not a woman in sight.
“And I know I shoulda called and, baby, I’m real sorry.
“Let’s get a cellular phone and then you won’t have to worry.
“You know how much I love you and darlin’ I’m ready to prove it.
“And that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

“That’s my story.” (That’s my story.)
“Oh, that’s my story.” (That’s my story.)
“Yeah, I ain’t got a witness and I can’t prove it,
“But that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

“You know I ain’t gonna do a thing,
“Darlin’, unless you approve it.
“Well that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.”

“Nobody” by Sylvia

Sittin’ in a restaurant she walked by
I seem to recall that certain look in your eye
I said “who’s that?” You said with a smile
“Oh it’s nobody, oh nobody”

Maybe that explains the last two week
You called me up, dead on your feet
Working late again, I ask who with
You said “nobody, oh nobody.”

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she’s being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody’s after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better

Late last night we went for a drive
You were miles away I asked “who’s on your mind?”
You said, “Nobody, nobody. Why do you ask?”
Oh, her again I could have told you that.

We came back home got ready for bed
I said to myself I’ve got one shot left
Your still mine and I won’t stand in line
Behind nobody, nobody!

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she’s being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody’s after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better.

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she’s being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody’s after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better.

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she’s being clever?
