THE SACRIFICE

Written By: Sharon Thorn/Stuart Thorn/Lewis Frere

(VERSE)
ON A FLIGHT FROM NEW YORK CITY TO NASHVILLE TENNESSEE
I SAT BESIDE A SOLDIER HE TURNED AND SMILED AT ME
WE PASSED THE TIME TALKING HE WAS TRAVELING ALONE
AFTER THREE TOURS ON THE FRONT LINES HE WAS FINALLY HEADED HOME
HE SAID I PROUDLY SERVED MY COUNTRY I GAVE MY VERY BEST
I’LL DEFEND OUR RIGHT TO FREEDOM UNTIL I’M LAID TO REST
SURE IT’S BEEN HARD ON MY FAMILY
AND I MISSED SOME THINGS I WISH I COULD HAVE SEEN

(CHORUS)
I MISSED MY GRANDMA’S LAST CHRISTMAS
BEFORE SHE PASSED AWAY
I DIDN’T GET TO TAKE MY SON
TO SCHOOL ON HIS FIRST DAY
WHEN MY WIFE FELT SO ALONE
I COULDN’T HOLD HER WHEN SHE CRIED
BUT FREEDOM DOESN’T COME WITHOUT A PRICE
AND IT WAS WORTH THE SACRIFICE

(VERSE)
WHEN THE AIRPLANE FINALLY LANDED I JUMPED UP TO MY FEET
HE JUST SAT THERE SMILING STILL BUCKLED IN HIS SEAT
THE STEWARDESS KINDLY ASKED HIM SIR CAN YOU PLEASE WAIT
THE CAPTAIN WOULD BE HONORED TO WHEEL YOU TO THE GATE
HE THEN LEANED OVER SLOWLY GRABBED HIS CRUTCHES FROM THE FLOOR
I STARED AND WONDERED WHY I HADN’T NOTICED THEM BEFORE
THROUGH TEARY EYES I COULD HARDLY SEE
AND THE WORDS HE SPOKE CAME FLOODING BACK TO ME

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
JUST BEYOND THE GATE A YOUNG BOY HELD A CRAYON SIGN
IT SAID DADDY WELCOME HOME
I MISSED YOU MORE THAN YOU WILL KNOW
I LOVE YOU AND YOU’LL ALWAYS BE MY HERO

(CHORUS)
HE MISSED HIS GRANDMA’S LAST CHRISTMAS
BEFORE SHE PASSED AWAY
HE DIDN’T GET TO TAKE HIS SON
TO SCHOOL ON HIS FIRST DAY
WHEN HIS WIFE FELT SO ALONE
HE COULDN’T HOLD HER WHEN SHE CRIED
BUT FREEDOM DOESN’T COME WITHOUT A PRICE
AND HE MADE THE SACRIFICE

(TAG)
YES HE MADE THE SACRIFICE
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE

GOIN' PLACES

Written By: Sharon Thorn/Stuart Thorn

(V)
I WAS PLAYING MY GUITAR IN A TWO BIT BAR
DOWN ON FOURTH AND BLUFF STREETS IN DUBUQUE
I WAS GOIN' NO WHERE FAST
TRYIN’ TO MAKE MY MONEY LAST
BUT STEADILY BECOMIN' DESTITUTE

(V)
AS I FINISHED MY LAST SONG THIS GUY HOMER CAME ALONG
AND SAID NASHVILLE IS THE PLACE YOU 'OUGHTA BE
WITH MY GUIDENCE AND DIRECTION
AND ALL OF MY CONNECTIONS
YOU'LL BE FAMOUS IF YOU HEAD DOWN SOUTH WITH ME

(C)
THEN HE SAID
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN' HERE
JUST WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN' HERE
YOU SHOULD BE RAKIN' IN THE MONEY
FIGHTIN OFF THE HONEYS
LIVIN' LIKE A KING IN TENNESSEE
YEAH I'M A GENUINE PRO
DOWN ON MUSIC ROW
OH BOY YOU'RE GOIN' PLACES WITH ME

(V)
SO I PACKED UP ALL MY CLOTHES AND HEADED DOWN THE ROAD
WITH HOMER IN HIS JACKED UP SUV
HE STARTED GETTIN' LOW ON GAS
AND HAD TO STOP AND GET SOME CASH
INSIDE A BANK A LITTLE NORTH OF TENNESSEE

(V)
THE NEXT THING I SEE HOMER'S RUNNING STRAIGHT FOR ME
HE'S CARRYING LOTS OF CASH AND LOOKS DISTRESSED
I HEAR ALARMS AND SIRENS
MY BLOOD PRESSURE STARTS RISIN'
'CAUSE HE'S DRIVIN LIKE JEFF GORDON HEADIN' WEST

(C)
THEN HE SAID
WHAT THE HELL ARE WE DOIN' HERE
JUST WHAT THE HELL ARE WE DOIN' HERE
WE SHOULD BE RAKIN' IN THE MONEY
FIGHTIN' OFF THE HONEY'S
LIVIN' LIKE TWO KINGS IN TENNESSEE
BUT FIRST WE GOTTA LAY LOW
DOWN IN SUNNY MEXICO
SO BOY YOU'RE GOIN' PLACES WITH ME

(V)
HOMER SAID I MUST CONFESS WE'RE IN AN AWFUL MESS
AND NOW THE FBI'S PUT OUT AN APB
'CAUSE I'VE BEEN ROBBIN' BANKS
I ONLY HAVE MYSELF TO THANK
IF THEY LOCK US UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY

(V)
OUTSIDE OF ABILENE HOMER STOPS TO TAKE A LEAK
HE DUCKS INTO A ROADHOUSE FOR SOME ALE
AS WE WERE WALKIN' IN THE TAYLOR COUNTRY SHERIFF GRINNED
AND SAID THE ONLY PLACE YOU'RE GOIN' BOYS IS JAIL

(C)
THEN HE SAID
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN' HERE
JUST WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN' HERE
YOU SHOULD BE RAKIN' IN THE MONEY
FIGHTIN OFF THE HONEYS
LIVIN' LIKE TWO KINGS IN TENNESSEE
BUT BECAUSE OF ALL YOU SCAMS
YOU'LL BE GUESTS OF UNCLE SAM
'CAUSE BOYS YOU'RE GOIN' PLACES
YES YOU'RE GOIN' PLACES
BOY'S YOU'RE GOIN' PLACES WITH ME

(V)
NOW I PLAY AN AIR GUITAR IN A CELL WITH LOTS OF BARS
THEY EXTRADITED ME TO TENNESSEE
YEAH I’M IN MUSIC CITY
BUT ISN'T IT A PITY
I'M PERFORMING AT THE PENITENTARY

SATURDAY NIGHT CAT FIGHT

Written By: Sharon Thorn/Ashley McConnell

(VERSE)
ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT ANOTHER BAROOM BRAWL
I WAS STANDING AT THE BAR AND I SAW IT ALL
A GUY AND A BLONDE WERE THROWING BACK SHOTS
THEY WERE LAUGHIN’ AND TALKIN’ AND TOUCHIN’ A LOT
A REDHEAD APPEARED THROUGH THE SMOKEY BLUE HAZE
CAUGHT UP TO HER MAN AND HIS TOMCATTIN’ WAYS
DRAGGED THE BLONDE BY HER HAIR ONTO THE DANCE FLOOR
THE CROWD GATHERED ‘ROUND AND THEY CHEERED FOR MORE

(CHORUS)
THERE WAS CLAWIN’, PAWIN’, HISSIN AND HEAVIN’
CHOKIN’, POKIN’ BOBBIN’ AND WEAVIN’
THERE WAS SPITTIN’, HITTIN’, SCRATCHIN AND SCREAMIN’
A SHAMELESS SMACKDOWN SATURDAY NIGHT CAT FIGHT

(VERSE)
THEIR BODIES GLISTENED IN THE BLISTERIN’ HEAT
THE BAND TRACKED THE ACTION AND STEPPED UP THE BEAT
A COWBOY TOOK BETS AS HE STOOD ON A CHAIR
LIKE A BOUT WITH MIKE TYSON GIRLS DON’T FIGHT FAIR
JUST TO PROVE SHE WASN’T PUSSYFOOTIN’ AROUND
RED POUNCED ON THE BLONDE AND RODE HER OWN DOWN
THEN BLONDIE GRABBED RED BY HER TUBE TOP
AND THE MEN RAISED THEIR BEERS WHEN THE ELASTIC POPPED

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
WELL THE SMOOTH STAYIN’ STUD MISSED THE END OF THE FIGHT
TOOK OUT WITH A BRUNETTE INTO THE NIGHT
BET THOSE HELLCATS WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM
AS THE COPS READ ‘EM THEIR RIGHT AND HAULED THEM BOTH IN

(CHORUS)

(TAG)
YEAH, HOPE THERE’S ANOTHER CAT FIGHT THIS SATURDAY
MAYBE A REMATCH
MAN I LOVE WOMEN WHEN THEY’RE FIGHTIN’ OVER ME
YEAH, NEXT TIME I’LL BRING A LITTLE CAT NIP AND TIE IT AROUND MY NECK
AH, THE FUR WAS REALLY FLYIN’

I PRAY

Written By: Sharon Thorn/Stuart Thorn

(VERSE)
ALL THE PRESENTS HAVE BEEN OPENED
I’VE BEEN UP SINCE EARLY DAWN
SHARING CALLS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
DEAR 'OLE SANTA'S COME AND GONE
AS WE GATHERED ROUND THE TABLE
HOLDING HANDS WE BOWED OUR HEADS
I THANKED THE LORD FOR ALL HIS GIFTS
AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID

(CHORUS)
I PRAY FOR PEACE TO OFFER COMFORT IN A WORLD THAT'S TORN APART
FOR FAITH TO NOURISH HUNGRY SOULS AND HEAL THEIR TROUBLED HEARTS
MAY HOPE RESTORE THEIR SPIRIT WHEN THE HOPELESS LOSE THEIR WAY
AND MAY HIS EVERLASTING LOVE GUIDE US THROUGH EACH DAY

(VERSE)
THE KIDS GOT WHAT THEY WISHED FOR
AND THEIR SMILES MEANT I DID TOO
BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHOSE ONLY WISH
IS FOR STRENGTH TO JUST GET THROUGH
AS I REFLECT UPON THIS CHRISTMAS
RIGHT BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP
THERE’S STILL ONE THING I’VE TO DO
TO MAKE MY DAY COMPLETE

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
AS WE CELEBRATE THE SEASON
AND ALL THE BLESSINGS WE EMBRACE
LET US NOT FORGET ABOUT THE STRUGGLES
AND THE HARDSHIPS OTHERS FACE

(CHORUS)

LET'S PRAY FOR PEACE TO OFFER COMFORT IN A WORLD THAT'S TORN APART
FOR FAITH TO NOURISH HUNGRY SOULS AND HEAL THEIR TROUBLED HEARTS
MAY HOPE RESTORE THEIR SPIRIT WHEN THE HOPELESS LOSE THEIR WAY
AND MAY HIS EVERLASTING LOVE GUIDE US THROUGH EACH DAY

(TAG)
GUIDE US THROUGH EACH DAY

IN MY LITTLE HOMETOWN AT CHRISTMAS

Written By: Sharon Thorn, Stuart Thorn

(VERSE)
THE SHOPPING MALLS ARE DRESSED UP AND INVITING
DECEMBER STREETS ARE LIT UP AND EXCITING
DEPARTMENT STORE WINDOWS HAVE MOMS AND DADS BEAMING
WHILE CHILDREN GAZE WIDE EYED AND DREAMING

(VERSE)
THERE’S A HOLIDAY FEELING EMBRACING THE CITY
LAST MINUTE SHOPPERS ARE BUSTLING AND BUSY
BUT I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN TO THE PLACE
THAT WILL LIFT UP MY SPIRITS AND SLOW DOWN MY PACE

(CHORUS)
IN MY LITTLE HOMETOWN AT CHRISTMAS
THAT’S RIGHT WHERE I BELONG
NO MATTER HOW FAR THE DISTANCE
MY MEM’RIES KEEP BRINGING ME HOME
FAMILY AND FRIENDS TOGETHER WE SHARE
OUR HOPES, OUR DREAMS, OUR WISHES
OUR LOVE GROWS BIGGER EVERY YEAR
IN MY LITTLE HOMETOWN AT CHRISTMAS

(VERSE)
THE LOCAL BOY SCOUTS SELL TREES ON THE CORNER
THEIR HAPPY SMILES MAKE THE WINTER SEEM WARMER
THE CHILDREN’S BELL CHOIR RINGS CAROLS AND HYMNS
THEY CAN’T WAIT ‘TIL CHRISTMAS VACATION BEGINS

(VERSE)
OUT IN FRONT OF OUR CHURCH THERE’S A LOVELY OLD MANGER
INSIDE THERE’S NO ONE WHO FEELS LIKE A STRANGER
AT THE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE WE PRAISE GOD ABOVE
AND PRAY FOR A WORLD FILLED WITH PEACE, HOPE AND LOVE

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
THEY SAY HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
SO THIS TIME EVERY YEAR
ONE THING YOU CAN DEPEND ON
YOU’LL FIND MY HEART RIGHT HERE

(CHORUS)

I'M NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL

Written By: Sharon Thorn

(VERSE)
MY LIFE'S BEEN FILLED WITH STRUGGLES
BUT I'VE LEARNED HOW TO COPE
I'VE OVERCOME MORE OBSTACLES
THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW
DON’T CRITICIZE OR JUDGE ME
JUST TRY TO UNDERSTAND
I CAN’T DO EVERYTHING LIKE YOU
BUT I DO THE BEST I CAN

(VERSE)
SOMETIMES YOU HURT MY FEELINGS
SOMETIMES YOU POINT AND STARE
YOU DO IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
LIKE I’M NOT EVEN THERE
I PRETEND IT DOESN’T MATTER
THEN CRY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
YOUR UNKIND WORDS AT MY EXPENSE
ARE HARD TO JUST IGNORE

(CHORUS)
I KNOW YOU THINK I'M DIFFERENT
I SEE IT IN YOUR EYES
BUT IF YOU COULD LOOK INSIDE MY HEART
YOU WOULD REALIZE
I'M NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL
NO I'M NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL

(VERSE)
AT TIMES I FEEL SO LONELY
AT TIMES I’VE HAD ENOUGH
I’VE FOUGHT MANY UPHILL BATTLES
AND HAVEN’T GIVEN UP
WHY CAN’T YOU JUST ACCEPT ME
I’M ASKING GOD ABOVE
IF YOU COULD SEE ME THROUGH HIS EYES
YOU WOULD KNOW TRUE GRACE AND LOVE

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION
BOTH MEAN ALOT TO ME
BUT WHAT I NEED THE MOST FROM YOU
IS RESPECT AND DIGNITY

(CHORUS)

(TAG)
NO I’M NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL
I’M NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL

LEGACY

Written By: Sharon Thorn, Stuart Thorn

(VERSE)
I SAT DOWN IN HER CHAIR WHERE SHE SPENT MOST EVERY DAY
STARING OUT THE WINDOW AS HER TIME JUST SLIPPED AWAY
SHE’D GROWN OLD AND SO TIRED AND TRIED HER BEST TO HIDE THE PAIN
EVEN THOUGH IT GREW WORSE NEVER ONCE DID SHE COMPLAIN

(VERSE)
I’M SURE HER ENDURING MEMORIES GAVE HER PIECE OF MIND
THE DAY THE GOOD LORD CALLED HER HOME I GAVE HER ONE LAST KISS GOODBYE
A LETTER THAT SHE MEANT TO MAIL WAS THERE BESIDE HER BED
MY NAME WAS ON THE ENVELOPE SO I PICKED IT UP AND READ

(CHORUS)
I MISS YOU SO MUCH BUT I’M DOIN’ ALRIGHT
SOMETIMES I THINK ABOUT YOU
MOSTLY MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT
THE ONE THING I KNOW EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE NOT HERE
YOU’RE RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS YOU TO BE
YOU’RE LOVE WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME
I’M PROUD THAT YOU’RE MY LEGACY

(VERSE)
I MAY BE A GROWN MAN WHO’S FORGOTTEN HOW TO CRY
BUT WHEN I READ WHAT SHE WROTE TEARS BEGAN TO FILL MY EYES
WISDOM, PATIENCE, AND TRUTH, KINDNESS, LOYALTY AND LOVE
HER EXAMPLE TAUGHT ME HOW TO BE WHO I’VE BECOME

(VERSE)
SO I TURNED HER LETTER OVER AND WROTE DOWN WHAT I’D SAY
IF I WERE GIVEN ONE MORE CHANCE AND SHE WAS STILL WITH US TODAY
MY WORDS WERE PLAIN AND SIMPLE STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART AND TRUE
INSPIRED BY MY GREATEST LOVE DEEP INSIDE I’M SURE SHE KNEW

(CHORUS)
I MISS YOU SO MUCH BUT I’M DOIN’ ALRIGHT
SOMETIMES I THINK ABOUT YOU
MOSTLY MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT
THE ONE THING I KNOW EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE NOT HERE
YOU’RE RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS YOU TO BE
YOU’RE LOVE WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME
I’M PROUD TO BE YOUR LEGACY

(TAG)
YOU’RE LOVE WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME
I’M PROUD TO BE YOUR LEGACY

JUST YOU AND ME

Written By: Sharon Thorn, Stuart Thorn

(V)
SO MANY YEARS I SPENT ALONE
WITHOUT A LOVE TO CALL MY OWN
SOMEHOW I KNEW YOU WERE OUT THERE
WAITING JUST LIKE ME

(V)
BUT NOTHING EVER GOES AS PLANNED
AND I COULD NEVER UNDERSTAND
JUST WHERE I BELONGED TIL YOU CAME ALONG
AND NOW YOU’RE BY MY SIDE

(C)
WE SHARE WALKS ON SUNNY DAYS
WHEN IT RAINS A MATINEE
MEET THE PRESS THE SUNDAY TIMES
THE LOVE WE THOUGHT WE’D NEVER FIND
JUST YOU AND ME

(V)
MY LIFE WITH YOU MEANS SO MUCH MORE
THAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN BEFORE
I TREASURE EACH MOMENT
THAT I SPEND WITH YOU

(V)
THANK GOD YOU CAME TO MY RESCUE
MY DREAMS ARE FINALLY COMING TRUE
WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES I REALIZE
OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE

(C 2)
WE SHARE A MIDNIGHT BATH FOR TWO
A LUNCHTIME RENDEVOUZ
CABBAGE ROLLS AND CHARDONNAY
A LOVE YOU DON’T FIND EVERYDAY
JUST YOU AND ME

(C1)
WALKS ON SUNNY DAYS
WHEN IT RAINS A MATINEE
MEET THE PRESS THE SUNDAY TIMES
THE LOVE WE THOUGHT WE’D NEVER FIND
JUST YOU AND ME

OH BABE
IT’S YOU AND ME

AND WE'RE BEHIND YOU ALL THE WAY

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
MY HEROES DON’T MAKE HEADLINES

BUT EVERYDAY THEY RISK THEIR LIVES
CAUSE FREEDOM’S NEVER FREE

(CHORUS)

(TAG)

AND WE OWE IT ALL TO YOU

WE’VE GOT IT MADE
