Steve Wariner "Kansas City Lights" Lyrics

 

Six months out at sea

Be coming home soon on leave

I think of her as I stand here on the deck

Stars light the sky

Like a Kansas City night

Reflections on the water takes me back

 

Chorus:

Kansas City lights

In my mind they shine so bright

She's waiting there, I've been away to long

Kansas City lights

Shine for me tonight

Watch over her for me till I get home

 

No war is ever won

Find a job that must be done

It's just sometimes, it feels like no one cares

Waves are calm tonight

As I take my pen and write

Your always in my dreams and in my prayers

 

Chorus

Kansas City lights

In my mind they shine so bright

She's waiting there, I've been away to long

Kansas City lights

Shine for me tonight

Watch over her for me till I get home

 

Waylon Jennings "Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)" Lyrics

 

The only two things in life

That make it worth livin'

Is guitars to tune good 

And firm feelin' women

 

I don't need my name in the marquis lights

I got my song and I got you with me tonight

Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

 

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas 

With Waylon and Willie and the boys

This successful life we're livin'

Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

 

Between Hank Williams pain songs

And Newbury's train songs

And blue eyes cryin' in the rain 

Out in Luckenbach, Texas 

Ain't nobody feelin' no pain

 

So baby let's sell your diamond ring

Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away

This coat and tie is choking me

In your high society you cry all day

 

We've been so busy 

Keepin' up with the Jones

Four car garage and we're still building on

Maybe it's time we got 

Back to the basics of love

 

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas 

With Waylon and Willie and the boys

This successful life we're livin'

Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

 

Between Hank Williams pain songs

And Newbury's train songs

And blue eyes cryin' in the rain

Out in Luckenbach, Texas 

Ain't nobody feelin' no pain

 

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas 

With Willie and Waylon and the boys

This successful life we're livin' 

Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

 

Between Hank Williams pain songs

And Jerry Jeff's train songs

And blue eyes cryin' in the rain

Out in Luckenbach, Texas 

There ain't nobody feelin' no pain
