1. I CAN’T UNLOVE YOU – KENNY ROGERS

 

2. LADY – KENNY ROGERS

Lady, I’m your knight in shining armor and I love you
You have made me what I am and I am yours
My love, there’s so many ways I want to say I love you
Let me hold you in my arms forever more

You have gone and made me such a fool
I’m so lost in your love
And oh, we belong together
Won’t you believe in my song?

Lady, for so many years I thought I’d never find you
You have come into my life and made me whole
Forever let me wake to see you each and every morning
Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear

 

In my eyes I see no one else but you
There’s no other love like our love
And yes, oh yes, I’ll always want you near me
I’ve waited for you for so long

Lady, your love’s the only love I need
And beside me is where I want you to be
‘Cause, my love, there’s somethin’ I want you to know
You’re the love of my life, you’re my lady

3. YOU PICKED A FINE TIME TO LEAVE ME LUCILLE– KENNY ROGERS

In a bar in Toledo across from the depot
On a bar stool she took off her ring
I thought I’d get closer so I walked on over
I sat down and asked her name
When the drinks finally hit her
She said I’m no quitter but I finally quit livin on dreams
I’m hungry for laughter and here ever after
I’m after whatever the other life brings
In the mirror I saw him and I closely watched him
I thought how he looked out of place
He came to the woman who sat there be-side me
He had a strange look on his face
The big hands were calloused he looked like a mountain
For a minute I thought I was dead
But he started shaking his big heart was breaking
He turned to the woman and said
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille

With four hungry children and a crop in the field
I’ve had some bad times lived through some sad times
But this time your hurting won’t heal
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.
After he left us I ordered more whisky
I thought how she’d made him look small
From the lights of the bar room
To a rented hotel room
We walked without talking at all
She was a beauty but when she came to me
She must have thought I’d lost my mind
I could’nt hold her ‘cos the words that told her
Kept coming back time after time
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
With four hungry children and a crop in the field
I’ve had some bad times lived through some sad times
But this time your hurting won’t heal
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.

4. SHE BELIEVES IN ME – KENNY ROGERS

While she lays sleeping
I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
While she lays dreaming
I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says how was your night
And I come to her and say
It was all right, and I hold her tight

And she believes in me
I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way

While she lays waiting
I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
And I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend
And there’s no end while she lays crying
I fumble with a melody or two
And I’m torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through
God her love is true

And she believes in me
I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way
While she waits
While she waits
For me

5. WE’VE GOT TONIGHT – KENNY ROGERS & SHEENA EASTON

[Kenny:]
I know it’s late
I know you’re weary
I know your plans
Don’t include me
Still here we are
Both of us lonely
Longing for shelter
From all that we see
Why should we worry
No one will care girl
Look at the stars now
So far away
We’ve got tonight
Who needs tomorrow
We’ve got tonight, babe
Why don’t you stay

[Sheena:]
Deep in my soul
I’ve been so lonely
All of my hopes fading away
I’ve longed for love
Like everyone else does
I know I’ll keep searching after today

[Kenny:]
So there it is girl
I’ve said it all now

[Sheena:]
And here we are, babe
What do you say

[Sheena:]
We’ve got tonight
Who needs tomorrow
We’ve got tonight, babe
Why don’t you stay

[Kenny:]
I know it’s late
And I know you’re weary
I know your plans
Don’t include me

[Sheena:]
Still here we are

[Together:]
Both of us lonely
Both of us lonely

[Kenny:]
We’ve got tonight

[Sheena:]
Who needs tomorrow

[Kenny:]
Let’s make it last

[Sheena:]
Let’s find a way

[Kenny:]
Turn out the light

[Sheena:]
Oooooh-ho, come take my hand now

[Together:]
We’ve got tonight, babe
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay

6. ISLANDS IN THE STREAM – KENNY ROGERS & DOLLY PARTON

Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was something going on

You do something to me that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart, we got something going on

Tender love is blind, it requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, uh huh
Makin’ love with each other, uh huh

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between how can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh
From one lover to another, uh huh

I can’t live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing if you got no one
And you did walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing

But that won’t happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear this could be the year for the real thing

No more will you cry, baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one in love forever
We can ride it together, uh huh
Makin’ love with each other, uh huh

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh
From one lover to another, uh huh

Sail away, love come sail away with me

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh
From one lover to another, uh huh

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh
From one lover to another, uh huh

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong

7. DON’T FALL IN LOVE WITH A DREAMER – KENNY ROGERS & KIM CARNES

[Kenny:]
Just look at you sitting there
You never looked better than tonight
And it’d be so easy to tell ya I’d stay
Like I’ve done so many times

[Kim:]
I was so sure this would be the night
You’d close the door and want to stay with me
And it’d be so easy to tell ya I’ll stay
Like I’ve done so many times

[Both:]
Don’t fall in love with a dreamer
‘Cause he’ll always take you in
Just when you think you’ve really changed him
He’ll leave you again
Don’t fall in love with a dreamer
‘Cause he’ll break you every time

[Kim:]
Oh, put out the light

[Kenny:]
Just hold on

[Both:]
Before we say goodbye

[Kim:]
Now it’s mornin’ and the phone rings
And you say you’ve gotta get your things together
You just gotta leave before ya change your mind

[Kenny:]
And if ya knew what I was thinkin’, girl
I’d turn around if you’d just ask me one more time

[Both:]
Don’t fall in love with a dreamer

[Kim:]
‘Cause he’ll always take you in

[Both:]
Just when you think you’ve really changed him
He’ll leave you again
Don’t fall in love with a dreamer

[Kenny:]
‘Cause he’ll break you every time

[Kim:]
Ooooooh, put out the light

[Kenny:]
Just hold ooon

[Both:]
Before we say goodbye
Before we say goodbye
