The Palominos - I Don’t Care Why Your 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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

The Palominos – I’ll Take The Blame I’ll 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’ll take the blame, for what is going wrong Your so distant now, for that I’ll 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’ll 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’ll take the blame.

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
