Track Name: Hello
The Palominos - Hello

It’s a dream of a lifetime, to find the one you love
Spend your life walking hand in hand
But if your baby leaves you, it messes with your mind
Guess I better find out where she goes, yeah, guess I better find out where she goes

Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
Hello (Hello), Hello, won’t get away
Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
I’m not looking for trouble, I’ve been looking for you

You can run, you can hide, head out for the other side
Peepin’ eyes are looking out for you.

Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
I’m not looking for trouble, I’ve been looking for you

Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
Hello (Hello), Hello, won’t get away
Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
I’m not looking for trouble, I’ve been looking for you

Heads I win, tails you lose, tell me what’cha your gonna do
Either way I’m looking out for you

Hello (Hello), Hello, where you been baby
I’m not looking for trouble, I’ve been looking for you
Track Name: I Don't Care Why You're Crying
The Palominos - I Don’t Care Why You’re Crying

Did your new love just go away?
He broke your heart and left you just today
So that’s why you sit there
Crying once again, once again

Some folks just never seem to learn
You play with fire; you’re bound to get burned
Well it looks like you’ve done it
You’ve burned your heart again, once again

I don’t care why you’re crying
But it sure ain’t for me
You just sit there and keep up your whining
I don’t care why you’re crying

I guess you taught me how to be
I tried to love you, but you ran out on me
So here you are crying
Asking once again, once again

I don’t care why you’re crying
But it sure ain’t for me
You just sit there and keep up your whining
I don’t care why you’re crying
Track Name: (My Permanent Address Is) Lonelyville
The Palominos - (My Permanent Address Is) Lonelyville

Since you went away, and left me, I couldn’t live here anymore
For I found myself waiting, watching for the door
But now I’ve found, a new town, just over Heartbreak Hill
The neon sign blinks on and off, “Welcome To Lonelyville”

Lonelyville, Good ol’ Lonelyville
Where broken hearts are citizens, and lonely tears are spilled
And if you don’t come back sweetheart, and say I love you still
My permanent address is Lonelyville

Now the River Of Regret flows by my back door, the sun it gives no light
And Broken Hearts Anonymous, meets on Tuesday nights
The city hall is a honky tonk, the jukebox plays at will
The bluest country records, they’re heard in Lonelyville

Lonelyville, Good ol’ Lonelyville…..
Oh yes my permanent address is Lonelyville
Track Name: No One's Gonna Love You Like I Do
The Palominos - No One’s Gonna Love You (Like I Do)

I showed up like we planned, red roses in my hand
No one’s gonna love you like I do
Gonna dance the night away, jitterbug, swing and sway
No one’s gonna love you like I do

I peeked into your window, pounded on your door
Desperately I called out your name

Standing all alone, I’m here but you are gone
Still no one’s gonna love you like I do… No one will love you like I do.

My head says you left, my heart loves you still
No one’s gonna love you like I do
I quickly turn around, scattered roses hit the ground
No one’s gonna love you like I do

I can tell you drove through town, to shop it all around
Bet the boys all know you’re on the prowl

Your perfume’s in the air, I’d know it anywhere
Cause no one’s gonna love you like I do… No one will love you like I do.

I’ve always known my heart was beatin’ just for you
Every day I fall in love anew

No matter what you do, my love is always true
Yeah no one’s gonna love you like I do… No one will love you like I do.
Track Name: Folding Money
The Palominos - Folding Money

Well, I went to see my banker just to raise a little money
But when he told me their requirements well I started feeling funny
He said, you gotta have a house, you gotta have a lot
I ain't got a window and I ain't got a pot
Sometimes the whole world seems so funny
Trying to get my hands on some a-folding money

Well, I went to see the wellfare man, to try to get a pension
'Cause I was so depressed and I was needing some attention
He said, you don't qualify, you don't get a dime
That's when I broke his jaw, and that's why I'm doing time
I'd do it all again, though it may sound funny
If I could get my hands on some a-folding money

Well, in jail I got a letter from a lawyer in the city
He said, son I'm glad I found you, but it surely is a pity
Well, I hate to tell you now about your rich aunt Bunny
She passed and left a sack full of a-folding money

Well, I read her last will, and brother what a crime
"My nephew go to jail, well he don't get a dime"
Sometimes the whole world seems so funny
Trying to get my hands on some a-folding money
Track Name: To Be With You Again
The Palominos - To Be With You Again

I had a dream that I saw you, yesterday
With eyes that burned like fire, I know I heard you say
Come close and hold your darlin’, I need you next to me.
But I wake all alone again, in my reality.

Why, oh why’d you leave me, I miss you more each day
You asked me to pull you close, never leave your side
So I tried so hard to hold on but you slowly slipped away
The light faded from your eyes, nothing more to say.

It’s been years and I still can feel the pain.
Of lonely nights without you and there’s no other way
To hear you softly call my name, your breath across my skin.
So in dreams, I’ll gladly drift away to be with you again.

Why, oh why’d you leave me, I miss you more each day
You asked me to pull you close, never leave your side
So I tried so hard to hold on but you slowly slipped away
The light faded from your eyes, nothing more to say.

It’s been years and I still can feel the pain.
Track Name: In A Moment Of Weakness
The Palominos - In A Moment Of Weakness

In a moment of weakness, I fell in love with you
And now I can't help myself, you're in all I see and do
I didn't plan to fall in love, I just wanted to be free
But with one look into your blue eyes, soon you had your hold on me

I remember the days, when it was just me
With no one to go home to, I was wild and I was free
But it was then that I saw you, I really didn’t want to fall
But for that moment of weakness, I have no cares at all

In a moment of weakness, you had your hold on me
There was nowhere I could turn to, and it's all so plain to see
There's no more time for hiding, into your arms is where I'll stay
And for that moment of weakness, I'll never go away
Track Name: Wrong, So Wrong
The Palominos - Wrong, So Wrong

She wakes up every morning, tries to face the day
Doesn’t want to wake him, quiet as she goes
Stares at her reflection in the mirror right down the hall
Paints a smile on, combs her hair and wonders if he knows

It was a picture perfect wedding, everyone was there
No one saw a problem, did it show, I don’t know
They promised each true happiness and love to share
They were wrong, so wrong. They were wrong, so wrong.

He lies there in the stillness, listens as she leaves
Hope’s she doesn’t catch him staring at the wall
Wishing he could find a way to tell her that he’s gone
That dreams don’t last forever and forevers just too long

It was a picture perfect wedding, everyone was there
No one saw a problem, did it show, I don’t know
They promised each true happiness and love to share
They were wrong, so wrong. They were wrong, so wrong.

It was a picture perfect wedding, everyone was there
No one saw a problem, did it show, I don’t know
They promised each true happiness and love to share
They were wrong, so wrong. They were wrong, so wrong.
Track Name: One For The Mrs.
The Palominos - One For the Mrs.

Pour me another bartender please
One for the Mrs. and one for me
It’s been a year since she’s been gone

That’s one for the Mrs. and one for me

Keep em comin’ two by two
Don’t stop till I say were thru
I can stay here all night long
Not ready to move it on
Yes I’ll sit here and wait for her return
That’s one for the Mrs. one for me

I’m drinkin for two another night
Cause drinkin for one just wouldn’t be right
Keep um commin all night long

That’s one for the Mrs. and one for me

Keep em comin’ two by two
Don’t stop till I say were thru
I can stay here all night long
Not ready to move it on
Yes I’ll sit here and wait for her return
That’s one for the Mrs. one for me
Track Name: You're Gonna Lose Her
The Palominos - You’re Gonna Lose Her

If you don’t stop doing what you do
You’re gonna lose her, you’re really gonna lose her
If you don’t stop playin’ like a fool
You’re gonna lose her, your really gonna lose her

Can’t you see in her eyes anymore?
There’s a longing for home, for home
Why I warn you, guess I’ll never know
Before too long, she’ll be gone, and that’s all right with me

Just stop doing what you do
You’re gonna lose her, you’re really gonna lose her
If you don’t stop lookin’ like a fool
You’re gonna lose her, your really gonna lose her

Can’t you feel her love anymore?
Don’t you see when she cried, she cry’s
How you stand there, guess I’ll never know
Before too long, she’ll be gone, and that’s all right with me

Just stop doing what you do
You’re gonna lose her, you’re really gonna lose her
If you don’t stop running like a fool
You’re gonna lose her, your really gonna lose her
Well, if you don’t stop acting like a fool
You’re gonna lose her, your really gonna lose her
Track Name: Sold Down The River
The Palominos - Sold Down The River

I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river
Drifting away from you.
I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river,
Gotta get back, no matter what I do.

They said that you’ve been foolin’ around
Saw you with somebody new
Feel like I’m drowning down, down, down
What else can a poor boy do

I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river
Drifting away from you.
I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river,
Gotta get back, no matter what I do.

Just got your letter, they lied to me
You heart has always been true.
I’m headed up to Raleigh on a fast, fast train
Look out, I’m rollin’ on through.

I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river
Drifting away from you.
I’ve been sold sold sold, on down the river,
Gotta get back, no matter what I do.
Track Name: 18 Wheels
The Palominos - 18 Wheels

I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer
I’ve been drivin’ all night and my eyes are dry of tears
Since my sweet Betty done left me alone
This rollin’ rig has been my home
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

I’ve been drivin’ these roads for what seems all my life
Truck stops and tail lights occupy my life
Then a sweet little Betty bounced into my life
Whoops 3 kids a dog and a wife
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well it looked like my truckin’ days had come to an end
I had mortgage bills and PTA meeting to attend
That look in her eye told me something was wrong
Another mile and she’d be gone
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well I had some freight that would take me to Abilene
My Betty if you go I’m gonna leave
I had to make me a choice right then
My Betty’s never coming back again
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well the moral to the story I think you all can tell
If you see a little Betty don’t buy what she’s trying to sell
When she’s slingin’ that hash and servin’ that joe
She gives you a wink you better go
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer
I’ve been drivin’ all night and my eyes are dry of tears
Since my sweet Betty done left me alone
This rollin’ rig has been my home
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer
Track Name: Sweet Misery
The Palominos - Sweet Misery

I didn’t know your gone cause I was sleeping
You didn’t take the time to say so long
You warned me that someday you would be leaving
I guess this finally means your good and gone

Come on, come on, come on hear my plea
Don’t you know I need you here with me.
Well come on, come on, come on back and see
There’s nothing here without you but sweet misery

I’m staring out the widow feeling lonely
Another day will find me all alone
I close the blinds to try and hide my sorrow
A prisoner inside this empty home

Come on, come on, come on hear my plea
Don’t you know I need you here with me.
Well come on, come on, come on back and see
There’s nothing here without you but sweet misery
Track Name: I Take The Blame
The Palominos – I Take The Blame

I take the blame, for what is going wrong
I broke your heart, your faith in me is gone.
It’s not the same, you’ve drifted away
You’re so distant now, for that I take the blame

I don’t know if what I say can rearrange your mind
Don’t know why I played that game, I know now I was blind
But if you finally hear my begging pleas
Come back to me

I take the blame, for what is going wrong
Your so distant now, for that I take the blame.

I killed the flame, carried in your heart
It burned brightly, now I know everything is dark.
I hear your shame, crying in the night
Every tear that falls, for them I take the blame

I don’t know if what I say can rearrange your mind
Don’t know why I played that game, I know now I was blind
But if you finally hear my begging pleas
Come back to me

I take the blame, for what is going wrong
Your so distant now, for that I take the blame.
Mmmm…your so far away, for that I take the blame.
Track Name: Ain't No Grave
The Palominos - Ain’t No Grave

There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down
When I hear the trumpet sound
Gonna get up outa the ground
There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down

Well go down yonder Gabriel
Put your foot on the land and sea
But don’t you blow that trumpet until you hear from me

Well look way over yonder
See people dressed in white
I know it was God's people I seen 'em doin right

Oh look way over Jordan
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels and they’re comin’ after me

Well I goin to the river of Jordan
Bury my knees in the sand
Gonna holler high Hosanna til I reach that promised land

Oh look way over yonder
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels and they’re comin’ after me

Well meet me Jesus meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
And if these wings should fail me there won't be no other pair
