    Jump Up Tonight

    Jump up baby / get ready to roll
    We’re stepping out tonight / just itching to go
    Grab your hat and your dancing’ shoes
    I’m making you an offer that you can’t refuse
    Jump up tonight / Dance ‘til the morning light

    Stompin’ my feet I’m clapping my hands
    Swingin’ to the sound of a rocking band
    Bless my soul the piano man
    Poundin’ out a rhythm I can understand
    Jump up tonight / Dance ’til the morning light

    Hold on tight now don’t let go
    I wanna see you jump shake rattle and roll
    Keep on moving ‘til the break of day
    The band ain’t stopping they just wanna play
    C’mon boys whatd’ya say!

    Hit that floor stop wasting time
    Nothin’ like swinging for feeling fine
    Sitting at home don’t spark no romance
    I really love you baby when I’m watching you dance
    Jump up tonight / Dance ‘til the morning light

    Jump up baby / get ready to roll
    We’re stepping out tonight / just itching to go
    Grab your hat and your dancing’ shoes
    I’m making you an offer that you can’t refuse
    Jump up tonight / Dance ‘til the morning light

    Fly Away

    Sleepy eyed, down the stairs
    Lazy smile, tangled hair
    Daylight breaks on a crayon world
    One more picture / Daddy’s girl awakes

    Swing set turns in our back yard
    Back and forth, I play my part
    First friend calls on the telephone
    Out the gate and on her own

    And I watch from the window as she walks away
    A little bit further every day
    She wants to fly, fly away
    When she leaves she’ll always stay in my heart

    Made up dance on the kitchen floor
    She pulls me in just like before
    Stop and laugh, my little girl
    Does she know Daddy’s world she makes

    Crazy smile and her mama’s eyes
    Watch her grow, see her rise
    On that bike I taught her to ride
    Down the block and out of sight

    And I watch from the window as she rides away
    A little bit further every day
    She wants to fly, fly away
    When she leaves, she’ll always stay in my heart

    And she wants to fly, fly away
    And she wants to fly, fly away
    She will always stay, always stay
    When it’s time to fly, fly away

    Someday soon will be her time
    Eighteen years the blink of an eye
    She’ll move on to her new life
    In a car, off she’ll drive

    And I’ll watch from the window as she drives away
    A little bit further every day
    She wants to fly, fly away
    When she leaves, she’ll always stay in my heart

    She’s written her name in my heart
    Way down deep, the deepest part
    She’ll always stay, always stay in my heart

    Nothin' Like You

    I’ve seen the red sun dance on the river at night
    ‘Til it fades to black, fades from sight
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    I’ve seen the full moon shining in the midnight sky
    The North Star hanging up nice and high
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    You’re like wind on the water / Hammer to stone
    Under my skin / Straight to the bone
    In my mind all the time
    Can’t stop thinking / I can’t stop thinking ‘bout you

    I’ve seen the heat waves rise from the desert floor
    Stone walls standing from a world before
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    I’ve seen the rivers run wear away the land
    Beating that bank turning rock to sand
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    You’re like the wind on the water / Hammer to stone
    Under my skin / Straight to the bone
    In my mind all the time
    Can’t stop thinking / Can’t stop thinking ‘bout you

    The rivers rise with the first spring rain
    Running their banks and trying to change
    The summer sun paints the prairie lands
    In blues and greens and tans
    Leaves that change on October trees
    Carried off in the autumn breeze
    When I see you walk into the room
    I’ve never, never seen nothin’ like you

    I’ve seen laughter hiding in a child’s eyes
    Til it tumbles forth and starts to rise
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    I’ve seen my parents dance to an old blues tune
    Watched them move all about the room
    But I’ve never seen nothin’ like you

    You’re like the wind on the water / Hammer to stone
    Under my skin / Straight to the bone
    In my mind all the time
    Can’t stop thinking / No I can’t stop thinking ‘bout you

    There’s nothin’ like you

    Since You Said Goodbye

    The river’s freezing the sun refuse to shine
    The river’s freezing the sun refuse to shine
    You know I been so cold since you said goodbye

    The snow keeps falling, falling down from the sky
    The snow keeps falling, falling down from the sky
    I ain’t going nowhere gonna sit right down and cry

    Said you’d call but that phone it just won’t ring
    Said you’d call but that phone it just won’t ring
    I ain’t got nothing but these low-down blues to sing

    The mercury’s falling the cold front’s moving in
    The mercury’s falling the cold front’s moving in
    When you walked out you know you broke my heart again

    Everybody's Eatin' Barbeque

    All the old dogs roll back into town
    Pull up at my doorstep ready to party down
    Well talk and we’ll laugh and we’ll throw back a few
    But when it’s time to eat we know just what we’ll do
    ‘Cause when you come to my place
    Everybody’s eatin’ barbeque

    You know I like ‘em spicy mmm I like ‘em sweet
    Dripping with sauce no matter the cost
    Man they can’t be beat
    So put down that fork and I don’t need no spoon
    Grab on tight with both hands and then we’ll follow through
    When you come to my place
    Everybody’s eatin’ barbeque

    I don’t want no puny salad or even a juicy steak
    When I get the jones for bones I need just one thing on my plate
    And all the old dogs they feel just like I do
    Taste so doggone good it’s gonna chase away my blues
    ‘Cause when you come to my place
    Everybody’s eatin’ barbeque

    (“Pass the sauce… mmm… mighty fine”)

    When you come to my place
    Everybody’s eatin’ barbeque
