TAKE ME AS I AM (OR LET ME GO)
(Boudleaux Bryant)
« © '54 Acuff-Rose Music »

Take me as I am or let me go
Why must you always try to make me over
Take me as I am or let me go
White lilies never grow on stalks of clover
Take me as I am or let me go
You're trying to reshape me in a mold love
In the image of someone you used to know
But I won't be a standing for an old love
Take me as I am or let me go
(Take me as I am or let me go)
You've tried to change me ever since you met me
Take me as I am or let me go
If you can't overlook my faults forget me
Take me as I am or let me go
You're trying to reshape me...

WHERE DID THE SUNSHINE GO
(Boudleaux Bryant - Felice Bryant)
« © '55 Acuff-Rose Music »

Where did the sunshine go why is it raining so
Where is the love I used to know where did the sunshine go
Where did the sunshine go why do the cold winds blow
Where is the one I needed so where did the sunshine go

I discovered the sunshine in a woman's loving smile
Like a fool I thought the sun had come to stay
Then she fell for another and the sun went out of style
And the springtime vanished when I went away

Where did the sunshine go...

Now there's mothing but heartaches in the whole wide lonely earth
Anyway my blue world looks that way to me
Gone is all of the sunshine and the smile that gave it birth
Leaving nothingbut a cold cold misery

Where did the sunshine go...

MAKING THE ROUNDS
(Boudleaux Bryant)
« © '57 House Of Bryant »

I'm making the rounds with someone new now that you've gone away
But I'm making the rounds it's not the fun if it wasn't with you
The glamour has gone from all the spots the seem so bright and gay
But I'm making the rounds is all that's left for me to do

I never go home till the lost long hidaway place has closed its door
There's too much at home to remind me that we're through
I'll laugh and pretend that I'm not wishing for a bygone day
Where we were in love and I was making the rounds with you
[ steel ]
I never go home...

LOVIN' LIES
(Dorothy Chapman - Troy Martin - Pete Pyle)
« © '49 Peer International »

I'll never understand dear as long as I live
I guess I will always wonder why
You told me that you loved me straight from your heart
And then without a warning said goodbye

Loving lies that I believed and now how I grieve
You didn't mean them from the start
But you told me loving lies and broke my heart
[ steel ]
You say I'll soon forget you and find somebody new
But darling oh how wrong you are
I've only had one love dear and it was for you
And from that love my heart will bear a scar

Loving lies that I believed...

JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU
(Johnny Wright - Jack Anglin - Clyde Baum)
« © '48 Hill & Range Songs »

Just when I needed you you left and went away
You made my life so blue both night and day
You left me here behind with a troubled worried mind
So broken hearted too just when I needed you

I cried I cried I prayed and I tried to forget you and never call your name
What a shame what a shame you're the one who was to blame
You're the one who proved untrue just when I needed you
[ harmonica ]
You said it's best we part and never love again
And though it broke my heart I won't complain
You know I love you still and dear I always will
Although you proved untrue just when I needed you

I cried I cried I prayed and I tried...

MY HEART'S BOUQUET
(Jimmy Dickens - J. Gordon Hall)
« © '49 Acuff-Rose Music »

I was just a gay young fellow when I fell my pretty flower
Going in a field of love one day
When she told me that loved me and I knew must tell
So I picked her for my heart's bouquet

We have faced the years together sharing all our joy and sorrow
She has been my pride along the way
Through it all she has to guide me never one time has she fell
Since I picked her for my heart's bouquet

She's my heart's bouquet my heart's bouquet
I picked her from a field of love one day
I loved her then and I love her still cross my heart I always will
She's my darling she's heart's bouquet

Whe nold age has crept the pose and the years show in our face
When her golden hair has turned to grey
She'll still be my precious darling and I'll love her more than else
Just the same she'll be my heart's bouquet

She's my heart's bouquet...
