    Default ďI Wonít Fight AgainĒ

    Lyrics & Music by Terry Stewart 8/16/2014

    I was there when the war was new
    I fought and killed as I was trained to do
    I even bled a time or two
    But I wonít fight again

    I saw so many of us die
    I swear I heard their mommas cry
    And some of them they were friends of mine
    But I wonít fight again

    Chorus: 1
    God bless the ones who fought and died
    And God help the familyís that still cry
    Letís never forget the blessed few
    That made it back home to me and you


    War is just a game they play
    Where no one wins in the end they say
    But this I swear till my dyeing day
    I wonít fight again

    I did my part or so Iím told
    I stood and fought till my blood ran cold
    But now itís time that I grow old
    No I wonít fight again

    Chorus: 2
    God bless the ones who fought and died
    And God help the familyís that still cry
    Letís never forget the blessed few
    That made it back home to me and you


    War will come and war will go
    Men will die as it takes its toll
    Thatís the cost for peace I know
    But I wonít fight again

    Iíve seen what war can really do
    To even those that make it through
    Iíve been there a time or two
    No I wonít fight again


    Chorus: 3
    God bless them one one and all
    For their the ones that make our country strong
    If not for them where would we be
    If not for them would we be free

    If not for them where would we be
    If not for them would we be free

    Default "Goin fishin"

    ďGoin FishinĒ
    Words and music by Terry Stewart 8-05-2012

    Well its 5 oíclock and the son not up
    You can hear my old truck warm in up in the drive
    The coffeeís on the toast is up
    Well grab a bite and have a cup Ė Ya thatís right

    Choirs:
    Were goin fishin, were getting out a hear
    Just the guys and all the gear
    Grab the food and ice the bear
    Were goin fishing

    Well we finally patched up dads old boat
    Fingers crossed we hope it floats this time
    The weathers good, were feeling great,
    Were getten gone a little late but thatís just fine

    And weíve got to stop and get some gas,
    And the 2 six packs we brought wonít last the day
    And we canít forget to grab some chips,
    Candy bars and liquorish sticks OH YA and bait

    Choirs:
    Were goin fishin, itís that time of year
    Just the guys and all the gear
    Grab the food and ice the bear
    Were goin fishing

    I can see us on the boat
    Drinkin cold ones as we float on the lake
    End every now and then well find
    A big one on the line, boy I canít wait

    And when the sun does goes down
    You can find us sittin round the old campfire
    Tellin stories about the day
    When the big one got a way, Ya were all liars

    Choirs:
    Were goin fishin, were getting out a hear
    Just the guys and all the gear
    Grab the food and ice the bear
    Were goin fishing

    Default ďGood Ole Santa ClausĒ

    Words and music by Terry Stewart 7/15/2012

    Thereís a little old man in a bright red suit
    Who flyís around each year
    In a magic slay full of toys they say
    Being pulled by eight rain dear

    Heís a jolly old soul with a big white beard
    And a smile across his face
    And if youíve been good you can count on him
    Stopping by your place

    Chorus:
    Iím talkin about Santa, good-ole Santa Clause
    Heís the one who comes each Christmas
    Bringing joy to all.

    Heís brings lots of toys for the girls and the boys
    And some gifts for mom and dad
    He spreads Christmas cheer both far and near
    Even if youíre happy or sad

    Heís a sneaky old soul that will come and go
    And will never leave a trace
    But when Christmas morning finally comes
    Heíll put a smile on everyoneís face

    Chorus:
    Iím talking about Santa, good-ole Santa Clause
    Heís the one who comes each Christmas
    Bringing gifts for all.

    Now Santa lives at the old North Pole
    With Mrs. Clause they say
    He gets lots of help from some jolly Elves
    When it comes to filling his slay

    And his eight reindeer that rest all year
    Are up and ready to go
    All they need to hear from Santa
    Is a mighty Ho! Ho! Ho!

    Chorus:
    Iím talking about Santa, good-ole Santa Clause
    Heís the one who comes each Christmas
    Bringing joy to all.

    Default ďMomma We Miss YouĒ

    Music & Lyrics by Terry Stewart March 1, 2014

    (Phrase 1)
    Well momma, itís been a while, since we had a talk, I thought that
    Id drop on by, and try to ketch you up.
    The family they all send their love. They said theyíd stop by soon
    I just thought, we could have a talk, the way we use to do.

    (Phrase 2)
    Now daddy he donít come around, to see us any more, I think he
    found the bottle, to help him fight his wars.
    And granny well she is ailing and it wonít be too long till she is up there
    with you, so you wonít be alone.

    Chorus:
    But Momma we miss you and we wish you were here.
    I know the Good Lord took you but we donít think is fair
    But were just down here a trying, as hard as we can
    To keep this family goin the way that you planed

    (Phrase 3)
    Now Momma please donít worry, were all doing fine. Preacher
    Jones from Sunday school drops by from time to time
    And the welfare check keeps coming, their always on time, I guess
    They havenít heard the news that were just doing fine

    Repeat Chorus:

    (Phrase 4)
    Bobby Joe is working hard down at the mill every night right after
    School, it helps to pay the bills.
    On weekends we all get up just before the dawn, the girls all do
    The house chores and us guys we work the farm.

    (Phrase 5)
    Yesterday was Christmas and we all had a ball, running round the
    Christmas tree as we watched the snowflakes fall.
    Bobby Joe played Santa as he gave out the gifts, the young-ins all
    Got candy and toys made out of sticks.

    (Repeat Chorus) then repeat Phrase 1 Ėand fade out.

    Default ďTip JarĒ

    Words and music by Terry Stewart 8-01-2012

    Well he makes his living playing country music
    With his old guitar he roams from town to town
    You can always find him standing on a corner
    Pickin on his guitar and sippen on some Crown

    Well the story goes he used to be a big star
    Hell he even played the Opry so they say
    But now he roams around with a tip Jar
    Hopen that somebody ---will pay to hear him play

    Choirs:
    For life is hard and short in country music
    There’s always someone new to take your place
    But if you’re really good you just might make it
    Unless you find the bottle ---and drink your fame away


    People use to stand in line for hours
    Just to hear him play his country songs
    But over time he lost his mind to whisky
    And like so many others –-- He went and lost it all

    Now when you see him standing on your corner
    Remember he’s a famous country star
    So if you ask him to play a tune for ya
    Don’t forget to put ---some money in his jar

    Choirs:
    For life is hard and short in country music
    There’s always someone new to take your place
    But if you’re really good you just might make it
    Unless you find the bottle --- and drink your fame away

    Default "Devils After You"

    Words & Music By Terry Stewart.- 2013

    Lord Iím drown-in my sorrow and thereís nothin I can do
    That will help me face tomorrow and this pain Iím goin through
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Lord she said sheíd always love me, but I tore that love a part
    So here I am a die- in man, bleeding out from a broken heart
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Choirs:
    But now the lights are getting dimmer and its getten hard to breath
    I can feel my soul is leaving so Iím down upon my knees
    Jesus please forgive me for this thing that I must do
    And oh dear god ------------- Iíve been s a fool

    Now I know Iíve done so many things that I truly do regret
    But losing her forever is too painful to except
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Now I feel my body trembling; I can feel it get cold
    And I know my life is ending with every drop of blood that flows
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Repeat Choirs:.

    And I told her I was sorry for all the pain I put her through
    But I lied to her so many times she couldnít hear the truth.
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Well I should have seen this comin, but I was way to big a fool
    For I thought sheíd always love my no matter what Id do
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Repeat Choirs:

    When the sun comes up this morning Ill be on my way to hell
    Iíll be dancing with the devil, for I fear he knows me well
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    And I guess thatís just the price that Iím gonna have to pay
    For when the devils after you but you refuse to change your ways
    Hum hum hum -hum hum hum hum hum hum

    Default "My Old Ford Truck"

    Words and music by Terry Stewart

    Iíve got an old Ford truck that I bought in 85
    Itís got a lot of hard miles, but the motor still runs fine.
    Itís a little beat up cause the paint is chippen
    One door donít open, and the tailgates missin
    But even in the morning it starts up every time.

    And Iíve got a big old dog that Iíve had for quite a while
    Sheís a real slow moverí but I guess thatís just her stile
    But when she hears that old Ford fireín up
    Quick as lightning sheís up in the truck
    Ya that big old dog just sittin with a big ol smile

    Chorus:
    And I drive that truck every day to work and back
    With my big old dog stretched out on a gunny sack
    With the radio playing as loud as it can go
    Itís just me and my dog and my truck goin down the road

    When the weekend comes we head down to the lake
    With a cooler of bear and a couple of big ole stakes
    Now I prefer my steak cooked medium well,
    But my big old dog likes it bloody as hell
    But it donít really matter cause shell eat it any ole way

    Chorus:
    And I drive that truck every day to work and back
    With my big old dog stretched out on a gunny sack
    With the radio playing just as loud as it can go
    Itís just me and my dog and my truck goin down the road

    Itís been a good old truck and it never really let me down
    Sometimes I wonder how long itís gonna be around
    But when itís time does come cause it just wonít start
    Its gonna hurt me bad and probably break my hart
    When I tear it down and sell the whole dang truck for parts

    ďBut until thenĒ (Repeat Chorus)

    Default ďAm I back to Being LonelyĒ

    Words and music by Terry Stewart June 2, 2008

    Just when I thought I had beaten lonely
    And my heart was on my side
    No more worrying about tomorrow
    I took one day at a time

    No more crying on my pillow
    From regrets of yesterday
    I had everything I wanted
    Cause the lonely went away

    Choirs:
    Am I back to being lonely
    Is my heart about to brake
    Is the way I feel for you
    Just a terrible mistake

    Am I back to being lonely
    Or am I just a fool
    Afraid to feel the way
    The way I feel for you.


    I know you say you love me
    And that your love is true
    You say forget the past
    My futures here with you.

    But no matter how I try
    And no matter what I do
    I canít put the fear aside
    Yes the fear of losing you

    Choirs:
    Am I back to being lonely
    Is my heart about to break
    Is the way I feel for you
    Just a terrible mistake

    Am I back to being lonely
    Or am I just a fool
    Afraid to feel the way
    The way I feel for you.

    Words and music by Terry Stewart

    Lookin out my window
    Iím thinkin bout my life
    As Iím watchin all the rain drops
    Falling from the sky
    Iím thinking about tomorrow
    And how its goanna be
    Lookin out my window
    Without you hear with me

    Choirs:
    I can feel a cold wind blowing
    Through this old window pain
    And every now and then
    I can feel the rain
    I can see the dark clouds forming
    And there headin my way
    As Iím looking out my window
    On a dark and lonely day.


    Looking out my window
    Iím feeling like a fool
    Cause trying to forget you
    Is something I canít do
    And thinkin about tomorrow
    Well it only brings me pain
    So Iím looking out my window
    While I pretend itís only rain

    Choirs:
    I can feel a cold wind blowing
    Through this old window pain
    And every now and then
    I can feel the rain
    I can see the dark clouds forming
    And there headin my way
    As Iím looking out my window
    On a dark and lonely day.

    Default ďDance With Me TonightĒ

    Music & Lyrics by Terry Stewart

    They say that love is like a dance
    Where two lovers take the otherís hand
    Where the sound of their hearts sets the beat
    As their eyes and bodies softly meet

    So dance with me tonight
    Let me hold you oh so tight
    Let me lead you as we go
    As I sway you to and fro

    Dance with me tonight
    Let the music fill your heart
    Let the feelings we share last the night
    As we dance till the early morning light

    Take my hand and let us share the night
    As we dance till we see the morning light
    We may find just what weíre looking for
    As we glide so softly across the floor.

    So dance with me tonight
    Let me hold you oh so tight
    Let me lead you as we go
    As I sway you to and fro

    Dance with me tonight
    Let the music fill your heart
    Let the love we share be the light
    That guides us safely across the floor

    Default ďI Made a Big Mistake That DayĒ

    Words and Music by Terry Stewart 8/28/2014

    I made a big mistake that day
    I should have simply stayed away
    I should have called a friend
    Instead of seeing her

    I should have found a better way
    Of getting through that lonely day
    I should have stayed away
    Instead of seeing her

    Chorus:
    Well (But)I knew when I first saw her
    Man I didnít stand a chance
    I knew my heart was only hers
    It only took 1 glance

    I made a big mistake that day
    I should have simply stayed away
    I should have called a friend
    Instead of seeing her


    Now Iím pulling in my driveway
    In my brand new mini van
    And my old corvette is parked
    Out in the street

    And itís been a month of Sundays
    Since Iíve hung-out with my friends
    Though most of my good buddies
    Just live across the street

    Repeat Chorus:

    Now I spend my free time in the park
    With her two kids until itís dark
    Then we pop some corn
    And sit and watch TV

    But even though I love her so
    Deep down inside I truly know
    That this is not the
    Kind of life for me

    Repeat Chorus:

    Default ďA Little More To UsĒ

    Words & Music by Terry Stewart 8-27-2012

    Lyrics:
    Well here we are alone at last
    I can’t believe how time has past
    The kids have all grown up
    And moved away

    Now every night we watch TV
    It’s Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy
    I really think that there could be
    A little more to us.

    Choirs:
    There’s got to be a whole lot more
    Than sitten round and growing old
    At least that’s what I’m being told
    In all the magazines

    Maybe they might have it right
    At least I think we need to try
    To figure out how there could be
    A little more to us

    Lyrics:
    I really think that we should talk about
    Going out on evening walks
    And maybe holding hands
    Like we use to do

    And wouldn’t it be kind of nice
    To walk along the beach some night
    Who knows we just might find
    A little more to us.

    Repeat Choirs:

    Lyrics:
    Well how about we take a trip
    Along the coast on a sailing ship
    Where we could sit and watch
    The sun go down

    Or maybe we could take some time
    And try to find some piece of mind
    Who knows we just might find
    A little more to us

    Repeat Choirs:

    Lyrics & Arrangement by Terry Stewart

    Verse: 1
    Weíll I heard you pokin fun at that old cowboy
    Ya the one thatís leaning up against the bar
    I heard you made a joke about his beard and his old clothes
    Well Iím thinkin maybe you may have went too far

    Chorus: 1
    For that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    And heís meaner-- than any man Iíve known
    Yes that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    And from that look on his face Iím thinkin you should go

    Verse: 2
    I know you think your tough and thatís all right boy
    And from the size of you Iím thinkin you can fight
    But Iím hopin for your sake, your medical is paid
    And you have someone to give you your last rights

    Chorus: 2
    For that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    He could bring you down with just a single blow
    Ya that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    So donít you come to me and say you didnít know

    Verse 3
    I know to you heís nothing but an old man
    Who can barely stand up straight against the bar
    Well Iíve got news for you, that old man you were talkin to
    Heís by far the toughest cowboy in this bar

    Chorus: 3
    For that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    So you better turn around and walk away
    Ya that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    And Iíd hate to see what happens if you stay

    Verse: 4
    Well it wasnít long ago when I first saw him
    He was standing at that bar just like tonight
    When this big ole buck stepped up and tried to call his bluff
    Thatís the first time Iíve seen a grown man cry

    Chorus: 4
    For that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    And heís meaner-- than any man Iíve known
    Yes that old man is sixteen ways too crazy
    And every man whose here tonight -- would tell you so
    Yes every man whose here tonight -- would tell you so

    Structure your verses in a way the reader can better understand their meaning. If it is hard to read they may quit reading before they get to the end. Just because you know what you mean to say doesn’t always come across to the reader. Also be sure to be aware of 1st person, 2nd person and 3rd person. Try not to mix them up in your writings.
    You seem to have talent now all you need is structure

    In a dream that finally came true
    And I never knew that falling in love
    Was something so easy to do

    For I was alone for far too long
    Then you came into my life
    So I want you to know that I love you so
    And I will for the rest of my life

    I always hoped that one day Iíd know
    How it felt to truly be loved
    But now that I know I will never let go
    Of this feeling I have in my heart

    For you make me feel that true love is real
    Every time I look in your eyes
    And when we kiss I must admit
    Iíve never felt so alive

    Yes I always hoped that one day Iíd know
    How it felt to truly be loved
    But now that I know
    I will never let go
    Of this feeling I have in my heart

    Default ďJudgment DayĒ

    Words & Music by Terry Stewart

    Well I was walking through the park last Sunday
    When this little old man came up to me
    He was holding on to a bible
    As he got down on his knees
    Thatís when this little old man started preachin
    As he stared straight up at me

    He said get down, ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    He said get down -- ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    Get down on your knees all you sinners
    And get ready for the Judgment Day

    Just then this little old man started crying
    As his tears rolled down his face
    You could see in his eyes he was trying
    To warn the whole human race
    That the Day of Judgment was upon us
    And these were to be our final days

    He said get down, Ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    He said get down -- Ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    Get down on your knees all you sinners
    And get ready for the Judgment Day

    So when the Day of Judgment is upon us
    Only those that are righteous will be spared
    When the Day of Judgment is upon us
    Only those that are righteous will be spared
    So get down on your knees all you sinners
    And hope that the good Lord hears your prayers

    Ya get down -- Ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    Ya get down -- Ya get down
    Get down on your knees and pray
    Get down on your knees all you sinners
    And get ready for the Judgment Day

    Default ďMomma Didnít CryĒ

    Words & Music By Terry Stewart

    Well my daddy was a hard man
    He never gave an inch
    Heíd hit you with a closed hand
    If he couldnít find a switch
    Ya daddy was a hard man
    Up until the day he died
    And even though she always said she loved him
    Even momma didnít cry.

    Choirs:
    Even Momma didn't cry when daddy died
    And no one at the funeral wondered why.
    We all came out, and bowed our heads,
    And said or last good byís
    But even though she always said she loved him
    Even momma didnít cry.
    Well it all came down one evenin

    After Daddy got home from work
    He was curs-in at my mamma
    He was being at his worst
    Mamma said Iíve had it
    Then shot him dill he died
    And even though she always said she loved him
    Even momma didnít cry

    Choirs:
    Even Momma didn't cry when daddy died
    And no one at the funeral wondered why.
    We all came out, and bowed our heads,
    And said or last good byís
    But even though she always said she loved him
    Even momma didnít cry.
