Track Name: So Moved
SO MOVED

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


WHAT SHE SAID TO ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SPEAK
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SPEAK
ALL DAY

THE WAY SHE LOOKED AT ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SEE
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SEE
ALL DAY

WHEN SHE CAME TO ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
ALL DAY

THE WAY SHE CAME TO ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
ALL DAY

WHAT SHE SAID TO ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SPEAK
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SPEAK
ALL DAY

THE WAY SHE CAME TO ME
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
I WAS SO MOVED I COULD NOT SLEEP
ALL DAY
Track Name: Sweet By & By
SWEET BY AND BY

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI



THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I THOUGHT I KNEW EVERYTHING
THAT WAS BEFORE I LOST MY MIND
HEY SEÑORITA WON'T YOU CALL OUT THE NAME
THE MOON IS FULL AND I BELIEVE IT'S TIME

TO LET US GO THEN YOU AND I
TO THE SWEET BY AND BY
THAT WILL MAKE IT BETTER
DON'T HAVE TO JUST SIT AND CRY

THERE AIN'T MUCH REASON AND THERE AIN'T MUCH RHYME
TO THE WAY THINGS SEEM TO GO SOMETIMES
BUT HONEY IT AIN'T YOU, IT AIN'T THE THINGS YOU'RE TRYING TO DO
IT DON'T HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH TIME

SO LET US GO THEN YOU AND I
TO THE SWEET BY AND BY
WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER
DON'T HAVE TO JUST SIT AND CRY
YOU AND I
TO THE SWEET BY AND BY
WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER
DON'T HAVE TO JUST SIT AND CRY
Track Name: O Babe It Ain't No Lie
O BABE, IT AIN'T NO LIE

Lyrics by Elisabeth Cotten. Music by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


ONE OLD WOMAN IN THE TOWN
KEEPS TELLING LIES ON ME
WISH TO MY SOUL THAT SHE WOULD DIE
TELLING LIES ON ME

O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
CAUSE I KNOW THIS LIFE I'M LIVING IS VERY HIGH

BEEN ALL AROUND THIS GREAT BIG WORLD
AND I JUST GOT BACK TODAY
WORK ALL MY WEEK TO GIVE TO YOU
BABY WHAT MORE CAN I DO

O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
O BUT BABY IT AIN'T NO LIE
CAUSE I KNOW THIS LIFE I'M LIVING IS VERY HIGH
VERY HIGH
Track Name: Hard Times
HARD TIMES

Written by Stephen Foster 1854. Adapted by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


LET US PAUSE IN LIFE'S PLEASURE AND COUNT ITS MANY TEARS
FOR WE ALL SHARE SORROW WITH THE POOR
AND THERE'S A SONG THAT WILL LINGER FOREVER IN OUR EARS
O HARD TIMES COME AGAIN NO MORE

THERE'S A SONG, A SIGH OF THE WEARY
SAYING HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES COME AGAIN NO MORE
MANY DAYS YOU HAVE LINGERED AROUND MY CABIN DOOR
O HARD TIMES, COME AGAIN NO MORE

WHILE WE SEEK MIRTH AND BEAUTY, MUSIC BRIGHT AND GAY
THERE ARE FRAIL FORMS FADING AT THE DOOR
THOUGH THEIR VOICES ARE SILENT, THEIR PLEADING LOOKS WOULD SAY
O HARD TIMES COME AGAIN NO MORE

THERE'S A SONG, A SIGH OF THE WEARY
SAYING HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES COME AGAIN NO MORE
MANY DAYS YOU HAVE LINGERED AROUND MY CABIN DOOR
O HARD TIMES, COME AGAIN NO MORE

THERE'S A SONG, A SIGH OF THE WEARY
SAYING HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES COME AGAIN NO MORE
MANY DAYS YOU HAVE LINGERED AROUND MY CABIN DOOR
O HARD TIMES, COME AGAIN NO MORE
Track Name: Swimming Pool
SWIMMING POOL

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


I BEEN WALKING DOWN YOUR STREET ALL MORNING
I BEEN LOOKING FOR YOUR HOUSE
CAUSE YOU SAID IF I COME BY SUNDAY
MAYBE WE'D GO STEPPING OUT

WELL WE COULD GO FOR A WALK AFTER SUNDAY SCHOOL
WE COULD EVEN GO SWIMMING AT THE SWIMMING POOL

YOU LOOK SO SWEET MY DARLING
IN THE YELLOW SUMMER SUN
WITH YOUR SHOULDERS BROWN, FRECKLES SCARLET
MY SKIN IS PEELING AND I HAVE TO RUN

WELL IF I'M NOT AT THE WILLOW TREE BY NOON
I'M GONNA MEET YOU BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY
LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON
Track Name: Roundabout
ROUNDABOUT

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


HEARD AN OLD BLACKBIRD IN A TREE SO TALL
SAID THAT YOU AND ME ARE BOUND TO BE ONE AND ALL
WHEN THAT ROUSTABOUT LEAVES YOU DOWN AND OUT
AND THAT OLD FAMILIAR WIND BLOWS YOU ON DOWN THE ROAD
THAT AIN'T ALL
DON'T YOU KNOW

WHEN THAT COLD MOON MAKES YOUR OLD SHADOW CRAWL
I'LL BE WAITING HERE BY THE WATER SO CLEAR FOR YOUR CALL
WHEN THAT ROUNDABOUT TAKES YOU UP AND OUT
AND THAT OLD FAMILIAR WIND BRUSHES YOU ON DOWN THE HALL
DON'T YOU KNOW
THAT AIN'T ALL

WELL THE MONEY COME AND THE MONEY GO

I'LL TELL YOU GOOD PEOPLE
IF YOU WANT THE NEWS

EVERY TIME
I'M WALKING DOWN A ROAD I KNOW
A FOOTSTEP FALLS BEHIND MIND
AND I'M FLYING
WELL I BEEN HERE
AND IT DON'T SEEM THAT STRANGE TO ME
ALL I KNOW IS I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING

WHEN I SEE THAT SUN BEHIND THIOSE TREES ON THE HILL
AND THE COLORS THAT IT PAINTS ACROSS THE SKY
I THINK ABOUT THE TIME WE HAVE AND THE TIME THAT WE WILL
AND I THINK ABOUT THE TIME THAT HAS GONE BY

A LITTLE BIRD
IT FLEW DOWN AND TOLD TO ME
TAKE MY TIME AND DON'T LOOK BACK
AND STOP CRYING
SO I AM
WALKING SLOW AND FLYING HIGH
I WATCH THE TIME ERASE THE DAYS WITHOUT TRYING

WHEN I SEE THAT SUN BEHIND THIOSE TREES ON THE HILL
AND THE COLORS THAT IT PAINTS ACROSS THE SKY
I THINK ABOUT THE TIME WE HAVE AND THE TIME THAT WE WILL
AND I THINK ABOUT THE TIME THAT HAS GONE BY

YES I THINK ABOUT THE TIME THAT HAS GONE BY

WELL COME ON BABY
LET'S GO FOR A RIDE
I'LL TAKE YOU WHERE THE STARS ARE SHINING
MOST OF THE TIME
CLIMB ABOARD MY SHIP
WE'LL TAKE HER HIGH AS SHE WILL CLIMB
AND WE'LL SLEEP IN THE MOUNTAINS TONIGHT

WELL I, I KNOW YOU
YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT RIDE
AND YOU, YOU KNOW THAT I
I DON'T MIND IF I DO, I DO
BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE SMILING BABY
AND YOU LOOK MY WAY
IT MAKES ME WANT TO STAY AND BE YOUR MAN
LORD I GOTTA SAY THAT I'D LOVE TO BE YOUR MAN

BECAUSE IN THE MORNING WHEN I RISE
I GET TO SEE THOSE SWEET EYES
SHINING DOWN ON ME
DARLING I LOVE YOU AND I HOPE THAT YOU LOVE ME

WELL COME ON BABY
LET'S GO DOWNTOWN
I'LL TAKE YOU IN THE EVENING WHEN THE SUN'S
SINKING DOWN
WE'LL BE HAVING A HIGH TIME DOING THE OLD MESS AROUND
AND WE'LL SLEEP IN THE DESERT TONIGHT

WELL I, I KNOW YOU
YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT WINE
AND YOU, YOU KNOW THAT I
I DON'T MIND IF I DO, I DO
BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE SMILING BABY
AND YOU LOOK MY WAY
IT MAKES ME WANT TO STAY AND BE YOUR MAN
LORD I GOTTA SAY THAT I'D LOVE TO BE YOUR MAN

BECAUSE IN THE MORNING WHEN I RISE
I GET TO SEE THOSE SWEET EYES
SHINING DOWN ON ME
DARLING I LOVE YOU AND I KNOW THAT YOU LOVE ME
Track Name: Walk A Mile
WALK A MILE

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


I CAN TELL BY THE WAY YOU LOOK AT ME
YOU GOT SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND
AND IT'S EASY TO SEE HOW IT'D BE
IF YOU PUT YOUR LITTLE HAND IN MINE

COME ON BABY WON'T YOU LET IT GO
IF WE DON'T FIND OUT WE MAY NEVER KNOW
I ONLY WANT TO WALK A MILE WITH YOU
THEN I'LL LEAVE IT UP TO YOU

I BEEN SEARCHING FOR SO SO LONG
FOR SOMEBODY JUST LIKE YOU
BUT I DON'T REALLY KNOW IF IT'S REAL
TELL ME HONEY, IS IT TRUE?

ALL I'M ASKING IS A LITTLE TIME
CAN YOU HELP ME DRINK MY BOTTLE OF WINE
I ONLY WANT TO TALK A WHILE WITH YOU
THEN I'LL LEAVE IT UP TO YOU

WELL WE'VE COME SUCH A LONG LONG WAY
AIN'T IT STRANGE TO BE SITTING HERE
AND THE WAY THAT YOU SMILE AT ME
MAKES ME WANT TO DRAW YOU NEAR

IF YOU WANT TO COME AND TAKE MY HAND
CAN YOU REALLY LOVE A RAMBLING MAN?
THIS OLD WORLD IS REALLY NOT MY HOME
BUT IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE BEING ALONE

MIDNIGHT

Written by Kevin Bingo Richey ©1999 HOOP SNAKE BMI


SLEEPLESS NIGHT
NOTHING BUT MOONLIGHT
KEEPS ME FROM MY NEEDED REST

WHIPPOORWILL
CRICKETS AND BULLFROGS
STILL SING THE SONG I LOVE THE BEST

THINK I'LL WALK OUT FOR A SPELL
IN THE BLUE SHADOWS OF THE MOON
DRINKING FROM A WISHING WELL
WISHING THE DAY DON'T COME TOO SOON

SLEEPLESS NIGHT
BUT YOU KNOW I FEEL ALRIGHT
NO NEED TO CLOSE MY EYES IN ORDER TO DREAM

SHOOTING STAR
WONDERING WHERE YOU ARE
BEEN GONE A LONG TIME NOW OR SO IT SEEMS

THINK I'LL STAY HERE FOR A WHILE
LISTEN FOR THAT OLD COYOTE CALL
IN THE SHADOWS OF THE MOON
WISHING MY LUCKY STAR WOULD FALL BY
