Joey + Rory His And Hers

They’ve got two golden bands

On their left hands

His and hers

And two ropes by the bed

Hand-stitched in red

His and hers

And in the room by the hall

There’s a crib by the wall

Their dreams are about to come true

And two blankets brand new

One pink and one blue

His and hers

They’ve got two sets of friends

They see on weekends

His and hers

Between the work and the kids

Two lives that they live

His and hers

When they lay down at night

They just turn out the light

And they sleep without touching at all

And they stare at the wall

While two sets of tears fall

His and hers

Now they sit in a courtroom

With two sets of lawyers

His and hers

With two stories they tell

Of how it all went to hell

His and hers

And all that husband and wife

Have lived off a lie

That had such a beautiful start

Are two kids torn it apart

And two broken hearts

His and hers

Joey + Rory Dreamer

There’s a blonde haired boy with a diamond ring

In a town where I was raised

I left him heart broke there last spring

And headed down that old highway

The boys I meet here sure are swell

But it didn’t take me long to find

How I miss that place I knew so well

And that blue eyed boy of mine

[Chorus:]

Dreamer, dreamer the grass ain’t no greener

Whoever spread that rumor lied

Dreamer, dreamer the grass ain’t no greener

It ain’t no greener on the other side

There’s a two room house near an old hay barn

With a hole in the front porch screen

As fast as I could I left that farm

To follow my big city dreams

Now there’s big high risers everywhere

And concrete rows all around

How I miss that front porch rockin’ chair

Watchin’ the sun go down

[Chorus x2]

No it ain’t no greener on the other side

1,2,3,4

Joey + Rory Softly And Tenderly

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,

calling for you and for me;

see, on the portals he’s waiting and watching,

watching for you and for me.

Come home, come home;

ye who are weary come home;

earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

calling, O sinner, come home!

O for the wonderful love he has promised,

promised for you and for me!

Though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon,

pardon for you and for me.

So come home, come home;

ye who are weary come home;

earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

calling, O sinner, come home!

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

calling, O sinner, come home!

Joey + Rory The Preacher And The Stranger

We don’t have much here

But you’re welcome to it all

The preacher told the stranger at the door

Come sit down by this fire

Let the coffee warm you up

I can’t see I’ve seen rain this hard before

The stranger said “I saw your sign, as I was walking down the road”

“And I figured that a church might be the safest place to go”

Well son, crosses sure get heavy

And we’ve all got one to bear

And if you’re looking for a shelter

From the storm, you’ll find one here

They sat and talked for hours

There in that empty church

About how life’s unfair sometimes

Trying to make sense of how God works

The preacher said

“I lost my son one summer,

And he was only 25

A drunk driver crossed that double yellow line

And I prayed so hard to Jesus,

To save my only son

It seems all I do these days is question why

Now I stand here every Sunday, and preach to everybody else

And I talk a lot about forgiveness, but I can’t do it myself”

Son, crosses sure get heavy

And we’ve all got one to bear

I don’t know why I’m telling you all this

Or if you even care

They sat and talked for hours

There in that empty church

About how life’s unfair sometimes

Trying to make sense of how God works

Tears filled the strangers eyes

He said “I know I’ve changed a lot

I might be hard for you to recognize

But late one summer night

I’d had too much to drink

I got behind the wheel and changed both of our lives

And ‘I’m sorry’ just ain’t good enough, when you hurt someone like that

And if I could, God knows I’d give my life to bring him back”

Preacher, crosses sure get heavy

And we’ve all got one to bear

And I’m here to ask forgiveness

If you even care

They sat and talked for hours

There in that empty church

About how life’s unfair sometimes

Trying to make sense of how God works

Joey + Rory Born To Be Your Woman

You’re my man, and I’m your woman

Where you lead me, I will go

I will stand strong beside you

No matter how hard the wind might blow

Our love will last forever, like this diamond on my hand

Cause I was born to be your woman, and you were made to be my man

You’re the breath in my body

You’re the blood that’s in my veins

You’re my strength when I grow weary

You’re my shelter when it rains

Our love will last forever, like this golden wedding band

Cause you were born to be my woman, I was made to be your man

We are bound by God forever

We’re part of a bigger plan

Cause I was born to be your woman

And I was made to be your man

Joey + Rory My Life Is Based On A True Story

My life is based on a true story

The greatest story ever told

How God’s only son gave his life for me

Some two thousand years ago

No I wasn’t there to see

The shame of Calvary

He suffered there for me

Still he hears my heart confess

My unworthiness and my rewards

My life is based on a true story

The story of my wonderous Lord

No I wasn’t there to see

The shame of Calvary

He suffered there for me

Still he hears my heart confess

My unworthiness and my rewards

My life is based on a true story

The story of my wonderous Lord

Joey + Rory Tonight Cowboy You’re Mine

Take off your boots

Leave ’em there on the floor

And hang that old hat

On the hook by the door

Leave the horses and cattle

And the ranch far behind

They’ve had you all week…

Tonight cowboy you’re mine

Turn down those lights

On that nightstand

Let all that weight on your shoulders

Just melt in my hands

That ole latch on the barn door

And that broken fence line

Will still be there tomorrow

Tonight cowboy you’re mine

So leave the horses and cattle

And the ranch far behind

They’ve had you all week…

Tonight cowboy you’re mine

Joey + Rory I’ll Fly Away

Some bright morning when this life is over, I’ll fly away

To that home on God’s celestial shore I’ll fly away,

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away

When I die hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone, I’ll fly away

Like a bird from prison bars have flown, I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away

When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

(Take it away)

Oh how glad and happy when we meet, I’ll fly away

No more cold iron shackles on my feet, I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away

When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then, I’ll, I’ll fly away

To a land where joy will never end, I’ll fly away

(One more time)

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away

When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

Joey + Rory God Help My Man

There must be a real good reason why he ain’t home yet

There must be a real bad wreck slowing him down

I’m hoping he blew a tyre, his old truck flipped and caught on fire

‘Cause God help my man if he’s fooling around

If he’s fooling around with some hussy he knows

While I’m cooking his dinner and washing his clothes

If he thinks he can come home and climb into my bed

He’s got another thing coming upside his head

I hope there was a homeless hooker that he gave a hug to

I pray that’s her lipstick on his shirt this morning I found

These seven numbers I see in his pocket better win the lottery

‘Cause God help my man if he’s fooling around

If he’s fooling around with some hussy he knows

While I’m rocking his babies and washing his clothes

If he thinks he can come home and climb into my bed

He’s got a frying pan coming upside his head

I hope he’s got a real good lawyer ’cause he’s gonna need one

‘Cause you know my daddy is the judge here in this small town

By the time I’m through, I’m getting my half and I’m taking his too

‘Cause God help my man if he’s fooling around

Yeah, God help my man if he’s a fooling around

Joey + Rory He’s A Cowboy

He’s a cowboy

Who rode his dreams into the purple sky

Drove a million head of cattle

‘Cross the great divide

Mmm, he loved the JFC

That’s made way into his heart upon a melody

She sang a song just like a bird and then just flew away

He still lives with the pain, yeah, he’s a cowboy

He’s gettin’ old now

Every night he drifts off chasin’ the prairie wind

He’s our guest but come mornin’ he’s back again

It’s a lonesome love but he’s a cowboy

It’s a rough ride ridin’ into the rain

It’s a tough life livin’ life against the grey

But he’ll hold on tight until the day he dies

He’s a cowboy

He’s a cowboy

Searchin’ for the broken trail that leads him back to her

The crack of dawn bring’s just another day of hurt

Mmm, he’s thinkin’ now, boy

Of findin’ a place to rest his weary mind

Longin’ for the night he takes his final ride

To the other side, yeah, he’s a cowboy

It’s a rough ride ridin’ into the rain

It’s a tough life livin’ life against the grey

But he’ll hold on tight till the day he dies

He’s a cowboy

He’s a cowboy, oh, uh

Oh, ride ’em, cowboy

(Oh, ride ’em, cowboy)
