Tanya Tucker Rainy Girl

Maybe you wish I was someone else

I’ve tried so hard to be myself

But I can see you need a change

Some folks get tired of the rain

Some folks get tired of the rain

One sunny day you’ll change your mind

And look for clouds but you find

Your rainy girl won’t rain no more

Some folks get tired of the rain

Some folks get tired of the rain

Hope you find those sunny days

As bright as you thought they would be

Remember who wanted what a change

It was you babe, not me

My love will last forever more

Just like the rain my love will pour

And when you go I’ll love again

Some folks don’t tire of the rain

Some folks don’t tire of the rain

Some folks get tired of the rain

Tanya Tucker Lizzie And The Rainman

He came ridin’ in on the sunrise of a hot west Texas day

A fancy man in a painted wagon with some fancy things to say

Looks like you folks need some water, well water is my game

And for the small price of $100 I betcha I can make it rain

Step back non believers or the rain will never come

Somebody start that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum

You know some may think I’m crazy for making all these claims

But I swear before this day is over you folks are gonna see some rain

They all just stood there a-staring trying to believe

But there was one named Lizzie Cooper who said he was a lying cheat

You say you call yourself a rainman, well you oughta be ashamed

Starting all these people dreamin’, thinking you can make it rain

Step back non believers or the rain will never come

Somebody keep that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum

You know some may think I’m crazy for making all these claims

But I swear before this day is over you folks are going see some rain

Hey Lizzie, well a mans got to have a dream

And if you can’t walk on the inside with me, I’ll meet you in between

Oh come with me Lizzie and the stars will right your name

And if you still think I’m lying to you, look younder there comes the rain

Step back non believers for the rain will never come

Somebody keep that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum

You know some folks think I’m crazy for making all these claims

But I swear before this day is over you folks are going see some rain

[Repeat and fade]

Tanya Tucker Depend On You

Broken glass lies on the bedroom floor

A broken dream lies in my head

I was counting on a big surprise

But I got a big surprise instead

I didn’t know people could change

So fast I didn’t see the game you played

Now the morning finds me somewhere

In the past hanging on the promises we made

I know that life is just a big and restless ocean

With the wind and the water always changin’ view

And I’ve always been the kind didn’t count on much

But I thought I could depend on you, yeah

Weatherman says it’s gonna rain today

And yes, I believe, he’s right

My face is feeling just a little bit wet

With a big storm coming through tonight

With the wind and the water always changin’ view

And I’ve always been the kind didn’t count on much

But I thought I could depend on you, yeah

Tanya Tucker A Memory Like I’m Gonna Be

I can hear you smilin’ on the ‘phone

Bet you thought that I’d be cryin’

Go on, tell yourself I done you wrong

But we both know you’d be lyin’

We don’t have to have a reason

If your heart is set on leavin’

To remember on some rainy day

A little simple word or thought

Or a birthday card, I bought

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away

You never can be free

From a memory like I’m gonna be

That greener grass you think you see

Hah, is just a high-heeled illusion

Better count the cost of bein’ free

Is it worth all that you’re losin’?

It may be over, but it’s not ending

‘Cause there’s one thing you’re forgetting

An’ you’ll remember on some rainy day

The little things we used to do

Like that night in Baton Rouge

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away

You never can be free

From a memory like I’m gonna be

When it all comes back someday

You’ll be surprised on some lonely night

When you close your eyes

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away

You never can be free

From a memory like I’m gonna be

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(From a memory)

Just surrender, ’cause you can’t get away

You never can be free

From a memory like I’m gonna be

Tanya Tucker As Long As There’s A Heartbeat

There’s a full moon up above tonight

But I don’t know if it will always shine

And I can’t say tomorrow it won’t rain

One thing that I know will never change

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

And day turns into night and there’s stars up in the sky

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

I’ll give all my love to you

Through good and bad you stand right by my side

Through all the ups and downs we face in life

We’ll grow old and silver haired someday

Youth may pass but love will still remain

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

And day turns into night and there’s stars up in the sky

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

I’ll give all my love to you

Time goes by it can make you feel alone

The future’s so uncertain

But there’s one thing you should know

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

And day turns into night and there’s stars up in the sky

As long as there’s a heartbeat keeping me alive

And I’ll give all my love to you, I’ll give all my love to you
