Lyrics

When True Love Finds You

Written By: Rick Dieffenbach

Intro Chorus: When true love finds you you have no choice but to follow it through

V1: Let me tell you about a story of a girl I knew back then
Found her standing at the locker with her books held in her hand

Smiling in her green plaid dress
Looking much cuter than the rest

There was nothing I could do
When true love finds you you have no choice but to follow it through

=====================================

V2: Jump ahead years w’ed gone our separate ways
I saw her at a party with that same smile on her face

Dancing in that red silk dress
Looking more sexy than the rest

There was nothing I could do
When true love finds you you have no choice but to follow it through

==============================================
Interlude:
Sometimes we need to look for love
And sometimes it looks for you
And sometimes it’s just plain dumb luck
When you find love that’s true
===============================================

V3: The reality of life is we don’t live in fairy tales
And true first love hardly ever ends very well , (but)

This beauty in her wedding dress
Pledging me love above the rest

There was nothing I could do
When true love finds you you have no choice but to follow it through

CLOSING:
Follow your heart to true love
Don't let your doubts keep you from
Tell her, how you feel today

True love is what you make it
You know you just can't fake it
If true love finds you, grab a hold... and don't let go

How Santa Plays Guitar

Written By: Rick Dieffenbach

I was standing on the corner waiting for a cab
The snow was falling thick like a Rockwell ad

Holding my guitar going home from a gig
Looking forward tucking in my sweet kids

When suddenly I heard a jingle bell so near
Saw a red coated man with his eight reindeer

He stopped his sled beside me and took off his cap
Placed it carefully atop a big red sack

=============================
CHORUS:
I'm lost I don't know where I am
My GPS went bonkers and Rudolf ran
But son, if you can just point out the north star
I'll show you how Santa plays guitar
============================

I wiped my glasses off I, couldn't believe
There was Santa Clause standing in front of me

My hand was shaking as I aimed to show him true north
And a smile came 'cross his face as he charted his course

He looked at me and said son, I'm a man of my word
Now hand me that guitar AND I'll play the best you ever heard

I gave him my guitar as he started to play
Then the reindeer bobbed their heads and their jingle bells swayed

(CHORUS)

His fingers picked so fast I just, couldn't believe
He's the greatest guitar player, I ever did see

My foot was a stamping to the beat as he played his tune
And the notes floated in the air like a cartoon

When suddenly it ended over, just like that
He gave me my guitar and made a jolly laugh

Now you know how Santa plays guitar, he said
And with that flew away in his reindeer sled

I Love Counting Birds

Written By: Rick Dieffenbach/Kathie Dieffenbach

(INTRO)

V1: One Hummingbird on its own
Sips the nectar then flies home
One Hummingbird on its own
Then it flies away

V2: Two blue jays eating seeds
Flap their wings as they feed
Two blue jays eating seeds
Then they fly away

V3: Three sparrows sweetly sing
They catch the wind on their wings
Three sparrows sweetly sing
Then they fly away

V4: Four Orioles love to eat
Give them oranges for a treat
Four Orioles love to eat
Then they fly away

V5: Five finches of bright yellow
They sing their song sweet and mellow
Five finches of bright yellow
Then they fly away

===================
Chorus:
I love birds and love to count them / that you know is true
Won't you join me and sing about them / you'll love counting birds too
===================

V6: Six Cardinals in a tree
They're bright red as you can see
Six Cardinals in a tree
Then they fly away

V7: Seven nut hatches upside down
They love to chirp their special sound
Seven nut hatches upside down
Then they fly away

V8: Eight buntings they're so shy
When they see you they will fly
Eight buntings they're so shy
Then they fly away

V9: Nine Chickadees you can see
They sing their song dee dee dee
Nine Chickadees you can see
Then they fly away

V10: Ten owls hooting at the moon
They sleep by day and night eat food
Ten owls hooting at the moon
Then they fly away

===================
Chorus repeat
