MERCY

 

I never never thought I would live to see the day

When I’d be running after a man this way

Baby you don’t know the effect you have on me

You’ve got my mind all twisted up and I can’t will free

 

Have a little mercy on my baby

Have a little mercy

Please little baby

Just a little bit

 

Whenever you are out of my sight all I do is pace the floor

My nerves are never settled til you walk through the door

Late at night when I lay in bed I just toss and turn

And if you don’t lighten up on me my life will be ruined

 

Have a little mercy on my baby

Have a little mercy

Please little baby

Just a little bit

 

Now you’ve got me fallen on my knees and eating out of your hand

I’m right here to fulfill your desire and every command

What more could you ask for when you got a fool like me?
Guess I’m getting what I deserve cause I’m where I wanna be

 

Have a little mercy on my baby

Have a little mercy

Please little baby

Just a little bit

BE WITH YOU

(Tim Krekel & Chris Stapleton)

 

 

I want you baby

Like I can’t explain

Need you baby

Like the ground needs rain

All I ever want to do

Is be with you

 

Hold me baby

Like you can’t let go

Show me baby

Everything I want to know

Cause all I ever want to do

Is be with you

 

CHORUS: Ain’t nothing ever been so right 

As you and me tonight

Look into my eyes and you see that you are my world

Don’t you know I wanna be your man

Do everything I can to make you understand

How I feel about you girl

I just want to be with you

 

So kiss me baby

Kiss me all night long

Just love me baby

Love me and we can’t go wrong

Cause all I ever want to do 

Is be with you

 

CHORUS

 

LOOKING FOR YOU

BB & Ben Danaher

 

All of the times

All of the highs I tried 

To escape this feeling of being alone

I knew something was wrong

But I just would not listen

 

I had to fall lose it all

To see the truth

 

I was looking for you

Knocking on every door

For you

Desperately needing something

I was looking for you

 

When I saw your face 

I was ashamed of all the years I’d wasted

Giving away the love that was yours

Oh babe I just wish I’d waited

 

But sometimes it takes

A lot of mistakes

To see the truth

 

I was looking for you

Knocking on every door

For you

Desperately needing something to believe in

Breaking every heart I went through

Until I knew

I was looking for you

 

DONE DIED

(Negro Spiritual – originally recorded by Boyd Rivers)

 

I done died one time

Ain’t gonna die no more

I done died one time

Ain’t gonna die no more

Done died one time

Ain’t gonna die no more

Ain’t that good news?

Oh Lord, Lord ain’t that good news

 

And one thing I know

Sho been born again

And one thing I know

Sho been born again

And one thing I know

Sho been born again

Ain’t that good news?

Oh Lord, Lord ain’t that good news

 

I’m so glad Lord 

I got my religion in time

I’m so glad Lord

I got my religion in time

I’m so glad Lord

I got my religion in time

Ain’t that good news?

Oh Lord, Lord ain’t that good news

 

POOR MAN’S MELODY

BB/Jimmy Wallace Ya’ll

 

When the roar of thunder comes

Rolling like a distant drum

And my ship is lost at sea

That’s when you rescue me

 

When I have nowhere left to hide

This world has stripped me of my pride

I come crawlin on my knees

Beggin’ you to carry me

 

Oh my soul

LET THE WATERS WASH ME CLEAN

Sing a poor man’s melody

Blind my eyes until your light is all I see

Until Love is all I need 

 

There’s a new song in my soul

It’s the sound of letting go

Though the tides forever change

I know Love will remain

 

Oh my soul

LET THE WATERS WASH ME CLEAN

Sing a poor man’s melody

Blind my eyes until your light is all I see

Until Love is all I need 

 

BROKEN

BB/Jimmy Wallace Y’all

 

Lord make my heart strong enough 

So I don’t have to fear it might break in two

I’ve done my best to repair this mess

But there’s only so much I can do

 

Chorus: I don’t wanna be don’t wanna be

Broken anymore

Don’t wanna see pieces of me

Shattered on the floor

Fill every crack

Fix every hole

Take it and make it whole

Cause I don’t wanna be broken anymore

 

Lord fill my heart up with love fill it up 

So I can feel it down in my soul 

Cause there’s too much strain

From all the pain

I’ve felt this way

For all my life

 

CHORUS

 

TOO LATE

BB & FORD THURSTON

 

What was I supposed to do?
I was so in love with you

The day you left I knew my heart would break

Didn’t want to let you go

Did my best to tell you no

Said you didn’t need me so you walked away

 

Now it’s too late

Too late

Too late to change your mind

Baby it’s too late

Too late

Too late to change your mind

 

I will always love you babe

But things will never be the same

I killed the love we made to get over you

Now there is nothing left of us

I am not the girl I was

Ash to ash and dust to dust it’s true

Now there’s nothing you can do

 

It’s too late

Too late

Too late to change your mind

Too late 

Baby it’s too late

Too late to change your mind

 

I did my best to wait forever

But babe it hurt me more than you’ll ever know

Letting you go

Ain’t Who I Was

(Adam Hood & Brent Cobb)

 

Well it’s true all you’ve heard

I’m living like a gypsy and I can’t be cured

Of this homesick blues

That I’ve come down with

I stay up late every night

In a different state getting high as a kite

Until I come down

I don’t realize that I’m just flying

 

And I suppose you know I can dig myself a hole

I’ve been told time and again

Yeah the rumors are true

But I ain’t who I was back then

 

These days I’m good and I’m grown

And I’m alone most of the time

Forgive or forget me

If my reasons don’t rhyme

But don’t take it too hard

It’s just part of living the dream

I pick and I sing

But I’m finally proud of who I am now

Cause it ain’t who I was

 

Oh and I suppose you know I can be a real asshole

Yeah I’ve been told time and again

Well the rumors are true 

But I ain’t who I was back then

 

These days I’m good and I’m grown

And I’m wrong most of the time

Forgive or forget me if my reasons don’t rhyme

But don’t take it too hard

Hell it’s just part of living the dream

When you pick and you sing

But I’m finally proud of who I am now

Cause it ain’t who I was

 

Lord I’m finally proud of who I am now

Thank God it ain’t who I was 

 

 

 

Not Cause I Wanted To

BB/Al Anderson

 

Well I’m calling you cause you deserve to know

You were not the reason that I had to go

Late at night in these hotel rooms

I think of all I lost and what I put you through

 

And if I knew the reason I would tell you why

Sometimes feelings slip away

I only did what I had to do

Not cause I wanted to

 

I’ve got a guilty heart and a troubled mind

No matter where I go they’re never far behind

And I’d like to think that you’ve forgiven me

But forgiveness ain’t enough to wash my conscience clean

 

Oh and if I knew the reason I swear I would tell you why

But sometimes feelings just slip away

I only did what I had to do

Not cause I wanted to

 

 

“You Will Be Loved”

BB/Jimmy Wallace

 

I gotta warn ya babe this may change everything

And I wouldn’t blame you for walking out

When you hear what I have to say

This was supposed to be

A temporary thing

But might I persuade you not to go

 

You will be loved

(Cause that’s all I have to give baby)

You will be loved

 

Now who’d ever thought this would be so wonderful?

Cause we’ve both had heartaches baby

And I know you still feel vulnerable 

But if you put your trust in me 

I’ll come by it honestly

Cause there’s just no way I could lie to you 

Oh I’m telling you the truth

 

You will be loved

(That’s all I wanna do baby)

You will be loved

(If you want me to, if you want me to baby)

You will be loved

(If you wanna be)

 

Bridge: I’ll give you patience

I’ll give you tenderness

I’ll give you my heart 

Like my life depends on it

I’ll give you the best part

Don’t care what the stakes are

I’ll risk it all just to build you up
