What We Do

Written By: Terry Rhoads

EVEN IF I HAD NO EYES I COULD SEE YOU
BY THE WAY YOUR VOICE WOULD FALL ON MY SHOULDER
SPEAKING TO WHAT I'VE FOUND, I'D LISTEN TO THE SOUND

AND EVEN IF I HAD NO EARS I COULD HEAR YOU
BY THE WAY YOUR EYES WOULD FALL WHEN I TOUCH YOU
KNOWING HOW MUCH I'VE FOUND, I'D TAKE A LOOK AROUND

I KNOW ALL YOUR MOVES, YOU GOT MINE DOWN TOO
WE FIT TONGUE AND GROOVE, TIGHT THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH, IT'S KINDA WHAT WE DO, WHAT WE DO

EVEN IF I LOST MY PLACE ON THE PLANET
I JUST HAVE TO CLOSE MY EYES AND WHEREVER
I AM, I AM WITH YOU, IT'S JUST A THING I DO

AND EVEN IF I LOST MY MIND I WOULD KNOW YOU
BY THE KIND OF THINGS I FIND DEEP INSIDE YOU
FIND DEEP INSIDE ME TOO, IT'S JUST A THING WE DO

I KNOW ALL YOUR MOVES, YOU GOT MINE DOWN TOO
WE FIT TONGUE AND GROOVE, TIGHT THE WHOLE WAY
THROUGH, IT'S KINDA WHAT WE DO, WHAT WE DO

ALL THE WAY TO TOWN

Written By: TERRY RHOADS

LIFE OF A FARMER ALWAYS BEEN A HARD ONE
SAME GOES FOR HIS WIFE
THEY NEVER KNOW WHAT'S UP AHEAD
PUT SOME SEED IN THE GOOD LORDS GROUND
ADD SOME WATER AND PRAY FOR A SIGN OF LIFE
MOST THE TIME FEEL LIKE LIFE BE EASIER BEING DEAD

I PROMISED YOUR DADDY I'D ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU
I PROMISED YOUR MAMA TOO THEY BOTH BELIEVED ME, NOW I THINK IT'S KINDA FUNNY
THE HARDEST ONE TO SELL LATELY BEEN YOU

NOW YOU KNOW YOU GOT TO KEEP THE FAITH IN ME
CAUSE IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE I SAY

WEEP NO MORE, THE WIND IS BLOWIN
WEEP NO MORE, THE RAIN COME DOWN
WE'LL BE FINE WHEN THINGS START GROWIN
COUNT OUR MONEY ALL THE WAY TO TOWN

7 LONG YEARS, 7 DAYS A WEEK
SWEATIN OUT IN A FIELD OF DIRT
ALL THAT TIME WITHOUT A DECENT CROP
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WANT A BETTER LIFE BABY
I KNOW HOW MUCH IT HURTS
AND YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I CAN'T AFFORD TO STOP

YOU KNOW MIRACLES HAPPEN ALL THE TIME
I FOUND THAT OUT WHEN YOU SAID I DO
AND IF WE STAY STRONG WE'LL BE JUST FINE
WITH THIS MUCH LOVE EVERY DREAM WE GOT BOUND TO COME TRUE

WEEP NO MORE THE WIND IS BLOWIN
WEEP NO MORE NOW CAUSE THE RAIN COME DOWN
WE'LL BE FINE WHEN THINGS START GROWIN
COUNT OUR MONEY ALL THE WAY TO TOWN
COUNT OUR BLESSINGS ALL THE WAY TO TOWN

IF I HAD A CHOICE

Written By: TERRY RHOADS

IF I HAD A CHOICE OF WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU
I'D PROBABLY CHOOSE TO LET YOU GO
TRY TO GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU
IF I HAD A CHOICE I'D SEND YOU OUT THE DOOR
BUT THAT'S IF I HAD A CHOICE AND I DON'T HAVE ONE ANYMORE

IF I HAD THE COURAGE I'D ASK YOU WHERE YOU WERE LAST NIGHT
BUT I GUESS I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
I'D RATHER KEEP PRETENDING IT'S ALRIGHT
IF I HAD THE COURAGE I'D CALL YOU ON THE FLOOR
BUT THAT'S IF I HAD THE COURAGE
AND I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE

ALL I HAVE'S THE COMPANY OF A STRANGER IN MY LIFE
ALL I HAVE'S THE COMPANY
OF A GIRL I STILL INTRODUCE AS MY WIFE

IF I HAD YOUR LOVE I COULD WALK ALL THE WAY TO TUCSON
I WOULDN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT TIRED FEET
I'D EVEN DO IT WITH NO SHOES ON
IF I HAD YOUR LOVE OVER MOUNTAINS I WOULD SOAR
BUT THAT'S IF I HAD YOUR LOVE
AND I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE

ALL I HAVE'S THE COMPANY OF A STRANGER IN MY LIFE
ALL I HAVE'S THE COMPANY
OF A GIRL I STILL INTRODUCE AS MY WIFE

IF I HAD YOUR LOVE I COULD SWIM ALL THE WAY TO COAST OF FRANCE
I WOULDN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT WRINKLED SKIN
OR GETTIN FISH CAUGHT IN MY UNDERPANTS
IF I HAD YOUR LOVE LIKE A LION I WOULD ROAR
BUT THAT'S IF I HAD YOUR LOVE
AND I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE
THAT'S IF I HAD YOUR LOVE AND I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE
I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE

That Ain't Right

Written By: Terry Rhoads

Don't know if you seen but I've been on my knees lately
And I don't know if you heard, but I been callin' your name
Guess you haven't been payin' no mind to my life lately
Guess you only been playin' me like a game, and that ain't right

Wonder if you even know what people been sayin' bout you
They been sayin' you got no heart and I think they might be right
As for me I don't believe in spreadin' no gossip bout you
But if I did I'd have enough to spread all the night, that's right

Listen baby I'll give you one more chance to do right by me
Listen baby you better open up your eyes and see, come to me

Someone walkin' up my street, come knockin' on my door
guess who
Hey that ain't you baby it's some guy makin' noise and
talkin' up your name
He say if I don't leave you alone someone gonna be sorry
guess who
I say if you wanna play rough I can play the same
Yeah I can play that game too

So I showed him a thing or two. Your friend gonna think twice before comin' over here again. Yeah I got blood all over his....
knuckles. At least that's what my neighbor told me after I came around. I mighta got some on his shirt too and you know how hard it is to get blood out of clothing so I feel pretty good about the whole thing. Oh baby why you so mean to me?

A Long Time Ago

Written By: Terry Rhoads

A long time ago I had me a woman, a fine one
She had skin as soft as skin and a chocolate lip
A long time ago I had a woman who loved me
But this is now and that was a long time ago

A long time ago I had me a good job, I ate lots of donuts
Everybody round me praised my name out loud they said hey Terry. Along time ago you couldn't touch me with a ten foot pole
But this is now and that was a long time ago

You see time gots a big ol' eraser and uses it too
It take away the good parts
No regard for who you are or what you do
The bluebird of happiness well he likes to stray
So the happiness that the bluebird bring
Sooner or later it's bound to wing away. Bound to wing away

A long time ago I was happy as a two pearl clam
I had one to show my friends and another one to live on
To pay the bills and feed the cat
A long time ago livin' life in the left hand lane
But this is now and that was a long time ago.
It was a long time ago. It was a long time ago.

relational scat

Written By: Terry Rhoads

Moving in and out of sync
It's hard to stay in tune
That's what caused me to think
About what we been doin'

Relational scat, it's the hip thing to do
Scat, just a measure or two

We determined long ago
What you need do in love
Is to listen and let go
To what it is that you are thinkin' of

Relational Scat, It's the hip thing to do
Scat, just a measure or two

If you want to stay in tune
With who you're holding tight right now
Here's your ticket to the moon
Don't even try to fight right now

Relational Scat, it's the hip thing to do
Scat, just a measure or two

Listen to what is going on around you,
and open your mouth (x4)

En Tus Brazos

Written By: TERRY RHOADS

Cuando estoy en tus brazos, la luna no bria
aun las estrellas se negan briar porque saben tambien
no pueden competir con todos tus encantos
robas la luz del cielo este yo se cuando estoy en tus brazos

When in your arms the moon has no glow
even the stars refuse to shine for darling they know
they can't compete with all of your charms
you steal the light from the skies this I know when in your arms
