On Days Like These

When the questions are in shades of grey,
it's hard to think what to say
on days like these.

When I wrap my arms around you tight,
my insides feel just right
on days like these.

When my emotions are tossed about,
I just want to shout
on days like these.

When my mind rests at ease,
I sip a glass of iced tea
on days like these.

When life's solution's don't seem fair,
I find it hard to care
on days like these.

When there doesn't seem to be time,
I find those who are kind
on days like these.

When the answers don't seem right,
the end isn't in sight
on days like these.

When I see that old photograph,
I can't help but laugh
on days like these.

When I see you smile at me,
I'm glad you love me
on days like these.

It's Time for Me to Settle Down

It's the end of the trail for me, yeah,
it's really the end of the trail for me.
Don't want any more ranchin' responsibilities.
I might even marry and have a family.
I think it's time for me to settle down
and the people are good in this town.

I'm tired of ridin' the range,
and I need to rest my bones.
I'm gonna give up my spurs
and somehow call this place home.
Times ain't the same as they were
just over 40 years ago.
I've fought off bandits, Indians,
the wind,  dirt, death, and snow.

It's the end of the trail for me, yeah,
it's really the end of the trail for me.
Don't want any more ranchin' responsibilities.
I might even marry and have a family.
I think it's time for me to settle down
and the people are good in this town.

My gun and my saddle have
been my true friends,
but things are different now,
and the past must end.
Railroads  bring the east to the west,
and fences take ranchers to the test.
Telephones communicate faster
than the fastest Pony Express pace.

It's the end of the trail for me, yeah,
it's really the end of the trail for me.
Don't want any more ranchin' responsibilities.
I might even marry and have a family.
I think it's time for me to settle down
and the people are good in this town.

My hair is thinning, and it's turning
white or gray.  From Virginia to 
Nebraska, my legs have carried
me a long, long way.

It's the end of the trail for me, yeah,
it's really the end of the trail for me.
Don't want any more ranchin' responsibilities.
I might even marry and have a family.
I think it's time for me to settle down
and the people are good in this town.

Left or Right?

Itís difficult to decide which way to turn.
Some people make a left, but look out!
Thereís traffic, and memories can be burned.
Others want to go that direction, but they
Say three rights can make a left, a safe bet.
But, you know, I donít want to that way yet.
Maybe just one right decision is all I need.

The Young and the Restless

They say Iím too young to fall in love,
but I know what love is all about.
It makes you feel so good inside,
the only thing you can do is shout!
No matter where I am or where I go,
he loves with his heart and soul,
and that is all I need to knowÖ

They say sheís too young to love,
but I know she makes me feel alright.
Some wonít like this situation,
but what I do is my business at night.
No matter where I am or where I go,
she loves with her heart and soul,
and that is all I need to knowÖ
The Beauty of Life

It all depends on what you do and say.

Home is a place to live, not just to stay.
Thatís the beauty of life.

Tomorrow can be a better day.
Care for the children; their smiles display.
Thatís the beauty of life.

Tomorrow can be a better day.
Target your goals, and donít ever stray.
Thatís the beauty of life.

Tomorrow can be a better day.
Believe in God and bring yourself to pray.
Thatís the beauty of life.

Tomorrow can be a better day.
It can be possible, if you want it that way.
Thatís the beauty of life.
