VERSE 1
They say the power of a song
stirs the soul and makes you strong
I say with magic so sincere
It is like a painting I can hear
When the melody is so profound
I cannot hear another sound

CHORUS

Paint me… Paint… Oh Paint me
Paint me a love song, Paint me a love song
Paint me a love song, Paint me a love song
Paint me with all your love

VERSE 2
Paint my fiery auburn hair
Brush my blue eyes, skin so fair
Shape the curves of this woman's heat
color my lips and hear me breathe
Paint me now on canvas white
Create our love for me tonight

CHORUS

VERSE 3
They say the power of true love
is a gift of grace from heaven above
I say the pleasure this surreal
it's like a painting we can feel
a lasting breath of pure sensation
the greatest gift of God’s creation

CHORUS

VERSE I
Ole Pastor Chuck he set me straight.
Quarter to twelve son and don’t you be late,
on pay check Friday it’s all the rage.
That’s Cowboy Bill who ya gotta meet,
breakfast and lunch in his usual seat.
Lulu’s here wait’en tables six days a week.

CHORUS
Come on meet me down at Penny’s Place.
We’ll get some lunch and a warm embrace.
You’ll catch up quick on what’s been going on
Cause the gossip is free in this here town
Come on and meet me down…
Come on meet me down at Penny’s Place.

VERSE II
Up on the walls collected with care,
are all the treasures local and rare.
You don’t see stuff like this anymore.
Here’s Miss Susie with the daily menu,
paper and plastic in this little venue.
Makes you wanna dream of all those days before.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I’m not sure why it feels so right.
Park your truck and leave the phone outside.
There’s something special bout the way things use to be.
Oh I love going back to simpler times.
There’s something special about this feeling inside.
Come on down to Penny’s Place.

CHORUS
Repeat Chorus

Islamoarada

Written By: Tom Connors

I found myself
on the shores of Islamorada
I lost myself
in the beauty of this place
night air blew clean
peaceful serene
for a moment
I touched my own soul
and I knew in my heart I was blessed

I found myself
on the shores of Islamorada
I gazed upon
her waters sky blue
tide gently turned
the lesson we learned
for a second
the whole world stood still
and surely I knew it was time

CHORUS
In Islamorada… In Islamorada
I found myself… I found myself
I found myself in Islamorada
I found myself… I found myself
I found myself in Islamorada

I found myself
on the shores of Islamorada
I lost myself
for a moment or two
Our purpose was clear
to live without fear
and in the end
there’s nothing but truth
and never will I lose you again

CHORUS
