7 LB Rhyme

WISH I HAD A SEVEN POUND RHYME  –

A NOTION ‘BOUT TROUBLES IN OUR TIME.
A SEVEN POUND RHYME  – TALKIN’ ‘BOUT
TROUBLES IN OUR TIME.
BUT I GOT NOTHING  – NOTHING BUT YOU ON MY MIND.
YAH, I GOT NOTHING  –  NOTHING BUT YOU ON MY MIND.
A SEVEN POUND RHYME  –   CARRY THE WEIGHT
OF THIS BIG OLE WORLD.
YAH, A SEVEN POUND RHYME
WOULDA SHONE LIKE A BRAND NEW PEARL.
BUT I’M JUST SO LONELY  –  WITHOUT YOUR WARM EMBRACE
I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING – JUST TO SEE YOUR FACE.
(BREAK)
WITH A SEVEN POUND RHYME
I WOULDA HAD  –  SOMETHING MORE TO SAY.
YAH, A SEVEN POUND RHYME JUST TO
BRIGHTEN UP YOUR DAY.
BUT I MISS YOU BABY, THAT I GUARANTEE  –
COME HOME NOW, DARLIN,’  COME ON HOME TO ME.

Jubilee

BORN ON APRIL 12TH

100 YEARS SINCE IT STARTED

HER HEROES WERE GENERAL BEAUREGAURD

AND EVERY REBEL MARTYR.

GEORGE DICKEL WAS A MENTOR

SHE WASN’T MUCH FOR ARISTOTLE

LOST FROM THE SCHOOL OF ATHENS

WAS FOUND IN A BOTTLE

(CHORUS)

SHE WAS NAMED FOR JUBAL EARLY

OR WAS IT ROBERT E. LEE?

SHE HAD THE TEMPER OF A HURRICANE

AND HER NAME WAS  –  JUBILEE.

SHE ACED AMERICAN HISTORY

SHE DROVE HER MOM’S GTO

SHE HAD A SOFT SIDE FOR BIKERS

BUT SHE COULD TELL ‘EM WHERE TO GO

ROUGH HEWN ‘ROUND THE EDGES

WHAT YOU SAW IS WHAT YOU GOT

AND ALL THE SQUIRRELS AND THE BOYS KNEW

THAT GIRL’S A CRACK SHOT

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)

THE BATTLE OF OLD CHURCH

WAS A STORY SHE TOLD

AND COLD HARBOR SUCCESSES

NEVER GROW OLD.

BUT STUBBORN AS YOUR IDOLS CAN LEAVE

A GIRL OUT IN THE COLD……………

(CHORUS)

YAH SHE WAS BORN ON APRIL 12TH

100 YEARS SINCE IT STARTED

HER HEROES WERE J.E.B. STUART

AND EVERY REBEL MARTYR

SHE NEVER DID MARRY

SHE NEVER COPPED A PLEA

SHE NEVER COULD SURRENDER

CUZ HER NAME WAS  –  JUBILEE!

Alabama

DAMN, THE BAD LUCK

IT’S GETTING HARDER TO HOLD MY HEAD UP.

A MONTH OF SUNDAYS HAS ME PASSED BY

YOUR’E NOT HERE AND I DON’T KNOW WHY

ALABAMA  –

WHY ALL THIS TEENAGE DRAMA??

I LIT A CANDLE TO YOUR PAIN

THE COLD WIND BLEW IT OUT AGAIN.

(BRIDGE)

THOSE SUMMER BREEZES BORE OUR LOVE

THROUGH THE FALL AND THE WINTER AND

HEAVEN ABOVE

BUT APRIL BROUGHT US A COLDER RAIN

AND OUR  MAY JUST HASN’T BEEN ITSELF AGAIN.

DAMN, THE BAD LUCK

GETTIN’ EASIER JUST TO GIVE UP……………..

A MONTH OF SUNDAYS HAS PASSED ME BY

AND I’M TIRED OF YOUR ALIBIS………………

ALABAMA  –

WHY ALL THIS TEENAGE DRAMA??

I LIT A CANDLE TO YOUR PAIN

THE COLD WIND BLEW IT OUT AGAIN………………………………….

Better In Tennessee

BETTER IN TENNESSEE

HEY NOW, HOW YA DOIN’ UP THERE?

HEARD YOUR’E LOOKING FOR A BETTER WAY

HOPING THINGS ARE GOOD FOR YOU

HOPING FOR A BETTER DAY………..

EVERYTHING’S SLOWIN’ DOWN ROUND HERE

MANY DAYS WE DISAGREE.

THINKING ABOUT A BRAND NEW START

IS IT BETTER IN TENNESSEE??

(CHORUS)

IS IT BETTER IN TENNESSEE?

IT JUST MUST BE THE PLACE FOR ME TO BE.

ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND I’VE GONE

BUT I’M THINKING IT’S THE PLACE WHERE I BELONG.

WORKED MY WAY THROUGH CAROLINE

JOBS WERE GOOD AND THE WEATHER  –  FINE

SOMEHOW ALWAYS JUST UNWINDS

WHEN IT’S TIME FOR ME TO SHINE.

BEAT A PATH DOWN ANOTHER ROAD  –  OR

CAST ADRIFT ON THE ZUIDER  ZEE

JUST CAN’T HELP BUT THINK THAT IT

IS BETTER IN TENNESSEE

(CHORUS)

(LEAD)

I WENT TOO FAR, BUT I’M COMING HOME

THERE’S NO MORE PLACES LEFT TO ROAM.

AND I LIKE IT  WHEN YOU SAY TO ME

I LIKE YOU BETTER IN TENNESSEE…………..

AND I LIKE IT WHEN YOU SAY TO ME

I LIKE YOU HERE IN TENNESSEE.

Harmony

ALL FOR ONE

(AND) ONE FOR ALL, NOW

HERE WE STOOD

BUT THERE THEY FALL.

WE’RE ON OWN NOW

JUST YOU AND ME

BUT  WHAT IS LIFE

WITHOUT A LITTLE BIT OF HARMONY?

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

IT SEEMED SO EASY

FEAST ALL DAY

ON THE WARM SUMMER BREEZE.

WHEN THE DAY WAS DONE

WE’D COUNT OUR BLESSINGS

AND THANK THE LORD

FOR ALL THE LITTLE THINGS WE RECEIVED:

(BRIDGE)

(G/Bm/A/D        G/Bm/A/G/D)

IT WAS ALL FOR ONE

BUT THEY’RE ALL GONE NOW.

THEY’RE IN A PLACE

OF LOVE AND PEACE.

AND WHAT OF US?

WE HAVE EACH OTHER

AND I THANK THE LORD

THERE’S A LITTLE BIT OF YOU FOR ME.

CUZ WHAT IS LIFE

WITHOUT A LITTLE BIT OF HARMONY?
