The Touch

Verse 1

In a small town many years ago

A man begged to Jesus, to his house would he go

For his daughter was sickly and dying she lay

And Jesus soon made his way

Verse 2

The crowd that had gathered, their numbers were great

As Jesus made his way through the gate

But He knew in His heart another need must be met

So He pressed on through the crowd

Chorus

Have you ever touched Jesus?

Have you drank from the well that will never run dry?

He will heal the sickness of sin in your soul

And by faith, He will make you whole

Verse 3

Another woman who lived in the same little town

All her life had been sick, to her bed had been bound

And she heard that Jesus was coming today

So she slowly made her way

Verse 4

She pressed through the crowd and then she saw Him

The One who would take away all of her sins

And then she reached out and touched Him and He turned to see

And He said “Who has touched me?”

Ending

Won’t you reach out and touch Jesus?

Will you drink from the well that will never run dry?

He will heal the sickness of sin in your soul

And by faith, He will make you whole

I Could Do You Some Good

Verse 1

Hey, there girl, by the dance floor, I saw you pattin’ your foot

How come you’re not swayin’ through the neon neighborhood?

You say your man met someone else, you thought he never would

No need bein’ lonely, girl, I could do you some good

Chorus

We can laugh, and sing and dance, and talk the night away

If you feel misunderstood, I could do you some

Oh, I could do you some good

Verse 2

I’ve had my own troubles, I’m back on my own

Maybe we could share some fun until our blues are gone

Hop out on the sawdust floor, scoot them cowgirl boots

I’d like to dance and hold you, girl, I could do you some good

Verse 3

Jump into the rag-top Ford, breathe that summer wind

We can drive away our cares until the dirt road ends

I’ll park beneath that ol’ full moon and we’ll sit on the hood

I’ll slip my arm around you, girl, I could do you some good

One Way Out

Chorus

Ain’t but one way out babe, but I just can’t go out the door

There ain’t but one way out baby, but I just can’t go out the door

‘Cause there’s a man down there, might be your man, I don’t know

Verse 1

Lord, you got me trapped here, woman, on the second floor

I get out this time, I won’t be stuck no more

Raise the window pane, I can ease out soft and slow

Lord, your neighbors won’t be talkin’ that stuff that they don’t know

Verse 2

Yeah, I’m foolish to be here, in the first place

I know some man will come and take my place

There ain’t no way in the world I’m goin’ out that front door

‘Cause there’s a man down there, might be your man, I don’t know

I Ain’t Leavin’

Verse 1

Where I come from the main street is a dirt road

And the place I live is out of the way

So, everybody always wants to ask me

Why I haven’t packed my things and moved away

Well, I’ve been around enough to know what’s out there

And I’m strong enough to say that I don’t care

Chorus

I ain’t leaving, I’m hangin’ tough

Till the Good Lord calls me up

I’ll be here until my dyin’ day

All I need is with you by my side

A couple ‘o kids and a simple life

Wouldn’t want it any other way

Well, I’m holding to the things that I believe in

I ain’t leavin’

Verse 2

Baby, I know sometimes life ain’t easy

And it’s a struggle just to make ends meet

And though we try and try our simple way of livin’

Won’t lead us to a life on Easy Street

But it don’t matter how hard the road ahead gets

I ain’t ever gonna call it quits

Ending

I ain’t leaving, I’m hangin’ tough

Till the Good Lord calls me up

I’ll be here until my dyin’ day

All I need is with you by my side

A couple ‘o kids and a simple life

Wouldn’t want it any other way

Well, I’m holding to the things that I believe in

Baby, I’ve got everything that I’m needin’

I ain’t leavin’

Building The Fire

Verse 1

Ashes and embers, there’s nothin’ so sad

That’s all that’s left of the love that we had

‘Cause deep in the night on the wild side of town

You were buildin’ the fire that burned it all down

Verse 2

Ain’t nothin’ here but a whisper of smoke

Driftin’ away with the promise you broke

Our dreams fell apart the night that I found

You were buildin’ the fire that burned it all down

Chorus

We had a mansion, a love on the hill

Filled it with passion, faith, and good will

But, all that remains is just dust on the ground

‘Cause you were buildin’ the fire that burned it all down

You built the fire that burned it all down

Verse 2

In the arms of a stranger, there in the dark

With no thought of the days when you lit a spark

Well, everybody could see it for miles around

You were building the fire that burned it all down

Ending

You lit the fire that burned it all down
