Kenny Rogers I’ll Fly Away

Some glad morning when this life is over

I’ll fly away

To a home on God’s celestial shore

I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O Glory

I’ll fly away

When I die Hallelujah bye and bye

I’ll fly away

When the shadows of this life are gone

I’ll fly away

Like a bird from prison bars has flown

I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O Glory

I’ll fly away

When I die Hallelujah bye and bye

I’ll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then

I’ll fly away

To a land where joy shall never end

I’ll fly away

O I’ll fly away O Glory

I’ll fly away

When I die Hallelujah bye and bye

I’ll fly away

When I die Hallelujah bye and bye

I’ll fly away

Kenny Rogers In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

In the wee small hours of the morning

While the whole wide world is fast asleep

You lie awake and think about the girl

And never even think of counting sheep

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson

You’d be hers if only she would call

In the wee small hours of the morning

That’s the time you miss her most of all

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson

You’d be hers if only she would call

And in the wee small hours of the morning

That’s the time you missed her most of all

Kenny Rogers Blaze Of Glory

Let’s go out in a blaze of glory

All good things must end

Like two heroes in a story

Let’s go out like we came in

In a blaze of glory.

Here we are broken hearted

We thought our love would never end

We fell hard when we got started

We’re fallin’ out like we fell in.

Let’s go out…

Let’s don’t lie and hurt each other

That would be our worst mistake

Once again let’s act like lovers

One more time for old time’s shake.

Let’s go out…

Kenny Rogers One Man’s Woman

She’s got dinner on the table at seven

The kids are tucked in bed by nine-fifteen

And she’s headed for a hotel at eleven

To meet a man her family’s never seen.

As the elevator takes her to her lover

She thinks about his wife at home asleep

And she knows it must be painful to discover

That the man you love’s not always yours to keep.

Well, she’s one man’s bride

And she’s one man’s on the side

She wonders why it takes two men

To keep her satisfied.

She’s a hard workin’ house-wife

Right now she’s occupied

She’s one man’s woman

And one man’s on the side

Yes, she’s one man’s woman

And one man’s on the side.

She thinks about her husband when it’s over

But she justifies her love affair somehow

She knows it can’t go on like this forever

But she takes it all from day to day for now.

Kenny Rogers I Can Feel You Drifting

You took me out so far that I can’t swim to shore

I’ve been holdin’ on but you’re not any more

Our love would always lead us home, constant as the Northern Star

Here’s a storm we won’t get through ’cause it’s not in your heart.

I can feel you drifting slowly out of reach

Out there in the distance, there’s something else you need

If I could be what’s missing, that’s all I’d want to be

I can feel you drifting.

In the silence that’s become the company we keep

I realise how far we are from what we used to be

A part of you has gone somewhere that I can’t seem to touch

I could stay and take what’s left, but, baby, that’s not us.

I can feel you drifting slowly out of reach

Out there in the distance, there’s something else you need

If I could be what’s missing, that’s all I’d want to be

I can feel you drifting.

If I could be what’s missing, that’s all I’d want to be

I can feel you drifting.

I can feel you drifting.

You’re out of reach…

Kenny Rogers Calling Me

There’s a back road leadin’ off the hard-top

Half-a-mile past the slingshot tree

Wanders round through a million mem’ries

It’s callin’ me, callin’ me.

There’s a white house with fading shutters

The old front door that never needed a key

An’ I hear my Momma in the hush of the evenin’

Callin’ me, yeah, she’s callin’ me.

An’ no matter where I’m goin’

It reminds me of where I’m from

Just as long as I can hear it

I know I’m not too far gone.

There’s a first kiss under the willow

Love so honest, it was hard to believe

An’ even when my heart is breakin’

It’s callin’ me, callin’ me.

Yes, it’s callin’ me

(Ooh, yeah, yeah.)

Callin’ me, callin’ me.

An’ no matter where I’m goin’

It reminds me of where I’m from

Just as long as I can hear it

I know I’m not too far gone.

There’s a tiny country chapel

Filled with voices singin’ harmony

An’ when my soul is lost in the silence

Oh, it’s callin’; yes, it’s callin’ me.

Yes it’s callin’ me.

(Callin’ me.)

Callin’

Oh, it’s callin’

Yes, it’s callin’ me…

Kenny Rogers King Of Oak Street

Like a leaf caught in the wind he drifted a while

With no purpose or direction too his life

He tried to get himself together and pacify his mind

And forget about the things he left behind.

The cryin’ woman standing helpless in his door

With a two month old baby in her arms

His little black book laying torn up on the floor

And God only knows he never meant to do her wrong.

A careless weekend on the other side of town

Has torn the king of Oak Street’s Castle down

And all week long he’s tried to call her but she won’t let him explain

Now Sunday morning finds him walking in the rain.

He sits down in a phone booth and he prays

That she’ll forgive him and she’ll believe he’s changed his ways

With shaking hand he deposits his last dime

And he’s still praying that she won’t hang up this time.

Then the sweetest voice he’s ever heard says hello

Breakfast’s almost ready baby, come on home

I’ve thought the whole thing over and I think I understand

That the king of Oak Street is just an ordinary man.

I’ve thought the whole thing over and I think I understand

That the king of Oak Street is just an ordinary man…

Kenny Rogers Midsummer Nights

Rain comes down on a misty bay

Light on the water and she’s coming my way

To be fair she’s only wearing a smile

Ease all my trouble just by driving me wild

And like moon don’t function without the night

We come together and she’s hanging on tight

She makes me tremble like I never before

Bringing me up to keep me begging for more

In every hour to be, let me satisfy your heart

I can take the lonely days

In return for the midsummer nights.

We know the journey to a better life, better life

And we never to be letting go

You got to learn to be lonely to find

What you’re living for

Making love on a midsummer night

I love those midsummer nights,

There may be one fool falling in love with you

You are the vision that I’m hanging on to

Any world, any dream you can see

Is yours and mine if we just want it to be

Let me lie in your arms

Let me understand your heart

I can take the lonely days

In return for those midsummer nights

We know the journey to a better life, better life

And we never to be letting go

You got to learn to be lonely to find

What you’re living for

Making love on a midsummer night

I love those midsummer nights,

Making your love to me only

Running forever, I’m following you

And I’m not afraid

For every hour to be

Let me satisfy your heart

I can take the lonely days

In return for those midsummer nights

Kenny Rogers Hoodooin’ Of Miss Fanny Deberry

Down in Sunflower County where I was born

Used to be a crazy woman.

Used to walk bare footed down a gravel road

Singin’ in an unknown tongue.

One day I asked her Papa why she was crazy

The tears welled up in his eyes,

He said, “the Devil’s inside my poor baby,

She be crazy ’til the day she dies.

“You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.

You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.”

Said Fanny always was a peculiar child.

Never could make her mind.

She used to slip out and go walkin’ in the woods late at night

Always came home cryin’.

But then one night she came home laughin’

Talkin’ out of her head.

She said, “Now I ain’t got to worry ’bout dyin’ Papa

I been sleepin’ in a Devil’s bed.

“You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.

You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.”

Hoodoo woman pickin up Qwewee

Hoodoo woman pickin up Qwewee

Said “Fanny’s Mama was a Voodoo Queen

Died when Fanny was born

He remembered her very last words to him.

She said, “I’m goin’ Honey, take care of Fanny ’til the Devil comes.”

So if you see her buried down in a graveyard

Diggin’ in a grave for Foofoo

You know she’s gonna Hoodoo somebody

And if you cross her she might Hoodoo you.

“You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.

You know she’s been hoodooed

By the power of the voodoo.”

Don’t be messin’ with a hoodoo woman

She’s gonna Hoodoo you.

Don’t be messin’ with a hoodoo woman

She’s gonna Hoodoo you.

Don’t be messin’ with a hoodoo woman

She’s gonna Hoodoo you.

Kenny Rogers Buried Treasure

Now if the aim in your life is to settle me down I couldn’t change my point of view

I got a lady in red at the back of my head but the woman in white is you

Do you wanna be the only one, fade away in the mornin’ sun

I could love you all of my life, you are my wife, haven’t I let you know-ow

We don’t need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don’t need it

We don’t stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it

You can never be all you wanna be when you’re searchin’ for gold

We don’t need no buried treasure, I’ve still got you (still got you, still got you)

I’ve still got you in my sou-ou-oul

Well it’s a long way down and you gotta get up, you gotta figure on a master plan

You couldn’t do it, if you don’t get ready, you’ll be beaten by the other man

Do you wanna be the last one in, play the game that you just don’t win

I can see me makin’ you cry, sayin’ goodbye, but I could never let you go-o

We don’t need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don’t need it

We don’t stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it

You can never be all you wanna be when you’re searchin’ for gold

We don’t need no buried treasure, I’ve still got you (still got you, still got you)

I’ve still got you in my sou-ou-oul

Well you’re takin’ my life in the palm of your hand, make you mine for another day

Ain’t nobody doesn’t need anybody when the good times turn away

I don’t wanna be the lonely one, fade away in the evenin’ sun

I could love you all of my life, you are my wife, haven’t I told you so-o

We don’t need no buried treasure, no buried treasure, we don’t need it

(Baby we don’t need i-i-it)

We don’t stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it

(In spite of i-i-it)

You can never be all you wanna be when you’re searchin’ for gold

We don’t need no buried treasure, I’ve still got you (still got you, still got you)

I’ve still got you in my sou-ou-oul

We don’t need it, we don’t need it

(We don’t need no buried treasure) we don’t need no buried treasure, we don’t need it

(Baby we don’t need it)

We don’t stand on ceremony but life is phony in spite of it

(We don’t stand on ceremony in spite of it)

You can never be all you wanna be when you’re searchin’ for gold

(We don’t need no buried treasure) We don’t need no buried treasure

I’ve still got you (still got you) I’ve still got you in my sou-ou-oul

We don’t need it, we don’t need it

(We don’t need no buried treasure) we don’t need no buried treasure, we don’t need it

(Baby we don’t need it)

We don’t stand on ceremony but life
