Spring in Tennessee

                        K. Glim/B. Glim

 

Rain's gonna fall, I know,

'Round the secret places we used to go.

It's hot and dry in Houston town;

Who'd believe the sun could get me down?

 

Oh, baby, how I miss your smile.

Some day soon we'll be walkin' down that aisle,

But today this old rig's got me tied

And I'm countin' the nights to your side.

 

Chorus

So let the rain come down, let it fall.

Though the rivers rise between us, I won't care at all.

When the daffodils bloom, then I'll be

Comin' home to you and spring in Tennessee.

 

In my mind you'll always be

My wild and sweet southern lady.

Our lonely days will soon be gone

'Cuz I've saved up my pay to get married on.

We'll put some down on a little farm,

I'll keep you safe and we'll keep each other warm

And every Saturday night we'll have a date.

We'll make music and dance and stay up late.

Chorus

 

Dogwood's bloomin', couples spoonin'

'Neath that sweet old Tennessee moon.

Winds are warmin', weather's stormin',

The wind's callin' out my name,

Sayin, "Come on home again."

Chorus

 

 

Meet Me in the Kitchen

                               B. Glim/K. Glim

Meet me in the kitchen, baby, half past eight,

Meet me in the kitchen, baby, don't be late.

Meet me in the kitchen, baby, what do you say?

Meet me in the kitchen, honey, I can't wait.

 

We'll cook us up some dinner, honey, yeah, just me and you;

Stir up something special, kinda like we used to do.

Throw open all the cupboards and see what we got,

Toss it down, mix it in, then kick it up a notch,

Meet me in the kitchen, baby, just me and you.

 

Chorus

I'll meet you by the island, spin you 'round the floor,

Love you 'til the sun says it's dark no more

Kiss you by the 'frigerator, kiss you by the door,

Kiss you by the oven, baby, then I'll kiss you some more.

 

Meet me in the kichen, baby, we'll get the pot to boil.

Meet me in the kitchen, honey, pour the olive oil,

Creme brulee, cheese souffle, fricasee or stew,

Apple pie, a jambalaya, anything'll do,

Just meet me in the kitchen, momma, just me and you.

Chorus

 

Bridge

You've been workin' all day,

I've been workin' every night,

The kids are all sleepin', now momma, it'll be alright.

So meet me in the kitchen, honey,

What do you say?

 

Meet me in the kitchen, baby yeah, choose your favorite spice.

I'll turn the oven on, pour the wine, put the shrimp on ice.

No thirty-minute meal for your man tonight,

We've got the time, we've got the place, the mood is just right,

Meet me in the kitchen, darlin', don't think twice.

Bridge

 

So meet me in the kitchen, baby,

Come on and meet me in the kitchen, honey,

Come on and meet me.  Come on and meet me.

Try something new.   Baby, me and you.

Maybe a new fondue.  Maybe a cordon bleu.

 

 

Hold on Fast

                B. Glim

I remember when you were three,

What a precious blonde flower you were to me.

I remember when you were seven years old,

"Daddy, would you marry me?"

Yeah, I remember, I remember you were twelve

And I tried to teach you how to swim.

You were scared, you thought I might drop you in,

Then I told you to

 

Chorus

Hold on fast, don't let go,

Hold me tight with all your might.

Yeah, the storms will come

And the storms will pass;

I'll always be there for you.

You can count on that, hold on.

 

I remember when you were just sixteen,

Thought you were in love,

Thought this was the real thing.

I remember when you were twenty years old,

You met Christ for the very first time

And spoke His name so bold.

Yeah, I remember, I remember how you looked

And how your eyes shown so bright;

You were in love with the Lord and the Savior of your life,

And I told you to

 

Chorus

Hold on fast, don't let go,

Hold Him tight with all your might.

Yeah, the storms will come

And the storms will pass;

He'll always be there for you.

You can count on that, hold on.

 

Then you met a man, said "Daddy, he's the one",

And he loves you, yeah he loves you

Like an angel from above.

But it's no big surprise --

I can see it in his eyes,

He'll fight through all the hardship

to keep your love alive. 

Chorus

 

 

Liana

B. Glim

 

She gets up early in the morning,

Shakes the dream from her six-year-old eyes.

She get up on the couch with her favorite book

And holds on for the ride.

 

She lets it take her to a far-off land,

Silver castles reach to the sky

And ladies-in-waiting and knights in white armor

Always show up for the fight.

 

And she rides the pages like a bird rides the wind,

Soaring through her stories of love.

A dove on a wing, she can see everything;

Flying so high, she can hear angels singing.

 

Chorus

Oo-ooh, Liana.  Oo-ooh, Liana.

 

She's growin' up to be a beauty

With a mind as wide as the sea

And it takes her to places and wide-open spaces

Where her teenage heart can run free.

She lets it take her to a far-off land,

Teen magazines grow on trees,

Starlets and limos and fashion-plate heroes

Are everyday company.

Chorus

 

All grown up, she's a lady

Gettin' on with the business of life

But she still gets on the couch with her favorite book

And holds on for the ride.

Chorus

 

 

Best of the Blessings

                       K. Glim/B. Glim

 

I've been gone a long time, Lord, it feels like forever,

But a man's got to do what he can.

And every night when work is through

My heart goes back to you,

Tending the kids and the land.

You're my right hand.  You're the one I want to see.

You're the best of the blessings to me.

 

I never thought I'd be the one to say I was sorry,

Now, honey, that's all I can do.

We let the little foxes in, the silly arguments begin,

But nothing matters next to you.

Don't let the shadows shade our easy harmony,

You're the best of the blessings to me.

 

Chorus

Girl, I remember

How we met on a night in September.

You were wearing blue when you walked into my heart

And I knew right from the start

That our love was a treasure

From above, without measure.

 

I was always searching, nearly gave up believing

That a special woman waited just for me.

Then when I felt most defeated, there you were,

Your smile completed something inside the heart of me.

Baby, I need you

Like the sailor needs the sea.

You're the best of the blessings to me.

Chorus

 

And it breaks my heart to know that you're lonely,

But it won't be long, the workday's gone

And I'm comin' home strong.

Chorus

 

Marlene

    K. Glim

 

You've got a hot tongue

And a cold shoulder, Marlene.

You've got a hot tongue

And a cold shoulder, Marlene.

Yeah, you've been runnin' me down all over town,

You burn me up and then you turn me down.

You've got a hot tongue

And a cold shoulder, Marlene.

 

You're a hot date but a heartbreaker, Marlene.

Yeah, you're a hot date but a heartbeaker, Marlene.

I gave you all of my love, even called you my dove,

I built you a home but you left it to roam.

You're a hot date but a heartbreaker, Marlene.

 

Chorus

Marlene, Marlene, why do you treat your man so mean?

You used to warm my coffee and pour my cream, Marlene.

 

Well, you're a sweet thing with a bitter sting, Marlene.

Sweet thing with a bitter sting, Marlene.

With such an innocent look, yeah, you baited your hook.

Now everything's gone but I'm still holdin' on,

Sweet thing with a bitter sting, Marlene.

Chorus

 

You took my money and you took my pride,

You took my heart on a midnight ride.

I used to wonder just who you are,

But now I know and you've gone too far, Marlene.

Chorus

 

Ghosts

B. Glim/Kevin Kincaid

 

Last night her kisses came back to me like ghosts,

Haunting me completely, beckoning so sweetly.

Like the first time she kissed me,

She caught me so off guard,

That perfect little mouth, parting lips, pressing hard.

 

And I'm sure last night she touched me

And loved me all through the night,

'Cuz I've never known another

Whose body fit so right,

Just like it did a couple days before I lost her last June,

When she thought that without a doubt

I could hang the moon.

 

Chorus

Or could it be the man in the moon

And how he shines his lovelight on my bedroom?

Does a man only see what a man misses most?

Last night her sweet kisses came back to me like ghosts.

 

Last night I swear I heard her singing

That song she loved so much.

Oh, my love, sweet baby, how I hunger for your touch.

Or could it be just a figment of my imagination,

Or maybe a broadcast of salvation

From heaven't true-love station?

Chorus

 

Too Cool

           B. Glim

 

I remember walkin' down the hallways in my high school

Back in my younger days.

I was struttin' and a-steppin' with an eye for the ladies,

Workin' on my elementary ways.

Bobby was my brother, we were made for each other,

Two cool boys as cool as can be.

We used to laugh at all the teachers

and the honor student creatures,

Seemed so out of place to me.

 

Yeah, I remember walkin' down the hallways in my high school

Back in my wilder days.

Didn't wanna go to class, didn't wanna learn a thing,

Just a-waitin' for the bell to ring.

Hey, Bobby, where're ya goin', don't you wanna sneak a smoke

And watch the colors of the world go by?

He said, sorry, little brother, gotta study, gotta study now

If you wanna get by.

 

But I was too, too cool.  I was way too cool.

 

Sneakin' out the window, gotta feel the wind blow,

2 AM rendevous.

Stole my Dad's booze, found the car keys, yeah,

I'm gonna borrow the ragtop too.

Lookin' for a quick way to be a man, I really didn't have a clue.

Finding my way through my high school days,

I thought I had nothing to lose.

 

I was too, too cool.  I was way too cool.

 

Now here I am livin' in the middle of an alley,

Sleepin' in a cardboad box.

And in the heart of the city in the winter it's a pity,

The raindrops come down like rocks.

They come down like rocks.

 

But I was too, too cool.  I was way too cool.

 

Won't Let Go of the Party

                                       B. Glim

 

The waitress cleared the table,

The bouncer's sayin' "Let's hit the road",

Another early-morning girl's feeling just a little bit low.

Yeah, she know that lonely feeling,

She's been kicked out many times before.

She'll take a twelve-pack out the back door,

A six-pack out the front door to go.

 

Chorus

And she won't let go of the party,

She can't let go of the night.

She can't believe that the evening's over

And she won't give up without a fight.

 

Now she starts to grinnin'

"Cuz the party's just beginnin' she knows.

Everybody's looking for a lover who won't get too close.

A bringin'-home-the-bacon man is not the kind of lover she needs,

Just someone to relieve these early-mornin' blues she feels.

Chorus

 

Well, the morning sun has broken

All the cheap words that were spoken last night.

Yeah, another party's over, she's gotta face that morning light.

Driving down the road she starts to think

Of all the lovers she's known,

Then she start a-crying,

Her real lover's waitin' at home.

Chorus

 

She's My Hero

K. Glim/B. Glim

 

She was young and beautiful, the world was at her feet.

She could've chosen a bright young man

Or a job workin' on Wall Street,

But her heart was calling her elsewhere

And her mind was settled too.

She traded in her high-heeled shoes for a pair of Army boots.

 

And she trained herself to do what must be done.

Through the pain and tears, she learned to carry a gun.

She found a way to be tough as nails but kept her tender heart;

She just wanted to do her part.

 

Chorus

She's a wife, a sister, she's a soldier, too,

And she loves to defend the red, white and blue

'Cuz she knows that freedom isn't easily won.

She's a hero.  She's an American woman.

 

She was always ready to do what was required,

From the heart of the Revolution to the heat of Hiltler's fire.

She served in Korea, crossed the swamps of Viet Nam,

She built a road in Afghanistan,

Flew a plane through Desert Storm.

As she changed herself to meet the new enemy,

She remained herself, resolute and free.

She gave it all 'cuz she understood the call of destiny

And the cry of liberty.

Chorus

 

Every night when she's all alone,

That's the time when her thoughts drift home.

She send her prayers on angel's wings,

Amazing women do amazing things.

Chorus

 

Yeah, she's my hero. 

Yeah, she is beautiful.

She's an American woman.
