JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME
Written By: Ray Tharp
Copyright 1997 (ASCAP)

JENNY WAS A YOUNG GIRL
WHO LIVED JUST DOWN THE WAY
ONE OF GOD'S OWN CHILDREN
THAT WAS SOMEHOW THROWN AWAY
DADDY TOOK TO DRINKING
MOMMY'S ALWAYS GONE
LEFT WITH FOUR LITTLE CHILDREN
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME

SHE LOVED HER BROTHERS AND SISTERS
AND EACH NIGHT SHE WOULD PRAY
LORD DON'T LET DADDY TOUCH THE OTHERS
IN HIS SPECIAL WAY
OH I CAN BEAR THE PAIN
HE'S USUALLY ALWAYS GONE
LEFT WITH FOUR LITTLE CHILDREN
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME

(CHORUS)
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME
OH HOW SHE'D LOVE TO ROAM
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME

JENNY HAD DONE THE CHORES
SHE WORKED SO HARD THAT DAY
THE CHILDREN WENT TO BED HUNGRY
WITH MOM AND DADDY FAR AWAY
A SPARK BROKE OUT THAT NIGHT
IT WAS AN AWFUL SIGHT
LEFT WITH FOUR LITTLE CHILDREN
JENNY'S ALWAYS HOME

(REPEAT CHORUS)

NOW JENNY'S FINALLY HOME

THE RAIN IS POURING DOWN
Written By: Ray Tharp

THE RAIN IS POURING DOWN
I SEE TROUBLE IN YOUR EYES
THE SUN HASN'T SHOWN FOR DAYS
WE LIVE HERE TOGETHER
NEVER BEEN SO FAR APART
OH THE STORM IS COMING
AND THE RAIN IS POURING DOWN

I REMEMBER DAYS OF BRIGHT SUNSHINE
WALKING HAND IN HAND
YOU WERE MY LADY 
AND I WAS YOUR MAN
BUT NOW THE CLOUDS BLOCK THE SUN
WE'RE LOCKED IN THIS PRISON
NOWHERE TO RUN
OH THE STORM IS COMING
AND THE RAIN IS POURING DOWN

(CHORUS)
SO LET THE THUNDER ROLL
LET THE LIGHTNING FLASH
AFTER A FEW SIGNED PAPERS
YOU'LL BE PART OF MY PAST
I'VE WEATHERED STORMS BEFORE
WITH NO SHELTER IN SIGHT
THE STORMS ALWAYS PASS
JUST A DAY FADES INTO NIGHT

I THOUGHT WE LOVED EACH OTHER
AIN'T IT FUNNY HOW LOVE CAN CHANGE
I GUESS EVERY LIVING THING HAS IT'S SEASON
BUT CHILL IS IN THE AIR
WE CAN'T FIND HAPPINESS ANYWHERE
OH THE STORM IS COMING 
AND THE RAIN IS POURING DOWN

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOU THREW WORDS OF LIGHTNING
THAT BURNED ME TO THE GROUND
I ROARED WORDS OF THUNDER
NOW THERE'S SILENCE ALL AROUND

(REPEAT CHORUS)

I'M A SINNER CAUSE OF YOU
Written By: Ray Tharp
Copyright 1997 (ASCAP)

AS I SIT HERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
JUST WHAT'S GOING ON
I STILL HAVE FEELINGS OF LOVE
BUT SOMETHING FEELS SO WRONG
OH IT'S TRUE YOU HAVE HURT ME
MORE THAN ANYONE COULD AGAIN
AND HOW I KEEP FORGIVING YOU
HAS ALMOST BECOME A SIN

(CHORUS)
YES I'M A SINNER BECAUSE OF YOU
NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER MADE ME FEEL SO BLUE
YES I'M A LONELY MAN
THINGS ARE SO OUT OF HAND
AND THE WORST PART IS
I'M A SINNER FOR YOU

NOW THE ONLY FRIEND THAT I HAVE
IS THIS DRINK HERE ON THIS BAR
THESE NEON LIGHTS AND THIS STEEL GUITAR
MAKE ME WONDER WHERE YOU ARE
I WONDER DO YOU THINK OF ME 
AND THIS WORLD OF SIN YOU PUT ME IN
BUT THAT'S ALRIGHT DARLING
I'LL JUST FORGIVE YOU AGAIN

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOU KNOW I'M JUST A MAN
WHO'S HURT REAL DEEP INSIDE
BUT IF I CAN HAVE YOU BACK AGAIN
SALVATION WOULD BE MINE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

AND THE WORST PART IS
I'M NOT OVER YOU


*****************************************************


LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME
Written By: Ray Tharp
Copyright 1997 (ASCAP)

ALL ALONE I'M THINKING ABOUT YOU
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
HOW YOU BROKE MY HEART IN TWO
YOUR FAR AWAY
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE YOU ARE
BUT I'M HERE WITH THE PAIN
I FEEL INSANE
AND YOU CAN'T SEE
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME

(CHORUS)
BUT WHEN YOU SEE
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME
THEN YOU'LL KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO SEE A GROWN MAN CRY
OH I LOVED YOU MORE
THAN WORDS COULD EVER SAY
BUT YOUR GONE
I'LL CARRY ON
TILL YOU CAN SEE
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME

WHEN WE FIRST MET
I KNEW I'D BE CRAZY ABOUT YOU
I BELIEVED ALL YOUR FOOLISH LIES
BUT NOW LOOKING BACK
I SEE WHERE I WAS A FOOL
YOU ARE GONE
I'LL CARRY ON
TILL YOU CAN SEE
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOU'D THINK BY NOW
I'D GET IT RIGHT
BUT A MAN IN LOVE
CAN LOSE HIS SIGHT
STILL WITH THIS BURNING PAIN INSIDE
I LONG TO BE WITH YOU TONIGHT

(REPEAT CHORUS)


*****************************************************


WHY CAN'T I GET YOU OFF MY MIND
Written By: Ray Tharp
Copyright 1997 (ASCAP)

HERE IT IS FOUR O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING AGAIN
WHY CAN'T I GET YOU OFF MY MIND
I KNOW I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
AND I'LL ALWAYS THINK OF YOU
SO WHY CAN'T I GET YOU OFF MY MIND

(CHORUS)
EVERYDAY I TRY HARDER 
TO FORGET THE MEMORIES
YOU JUST COME ON EVEN STRONGER
AT LEAST IN MY DREAMS
THE DAYS GO BY AND I GET OLDER
BUT NO PEACE DO I FIND
WHY CAN'T I GET YOU OFF MY MIND

WE WERE TOGETHER FOR A SHORT TIME
MY LOVE GREW STRONGER EVERY DAY
BUT YOU NEVER STOPPED LOVING HIM
AND YOU LEFT ME HERE THIS WAY
I TRIED SO HARD JUST TO KEEP YOU
BUT YOU'RE NOT THE KEEPING KIND
OH WHY CAN'T I GET YOU OFF MY MIND

(REPEAT CHORUS)
