				the one i dream

	baby wants his chicken fried
	i'll make it just the way he likes
	cause my  baby's alright
	he's alright

	baby likes to take a nap
	in the middle of the afternoon
	well i'll tuck him in on any day
	cause my baby's o.k.
	he's o.k.

		and i say, ooh honey
		you're the one i really love
		and when i'm fast asleep
		you're the one i dream of

	baby tells me when i'm bad
	he knows how to keep me in line
	oh my baby's fine
	he's fine

	sometimes ya know he plays the clown
	to keep the blues from
	pullin me down
	when i need him 
	he's always around
	always around

		and i say, ooh honey
		you're the one i really love
		and when i'm fast asleep
		you're the one i dream of

	so if baby wants his chicken fried
	i'll make it just the way he likes
	cause my baby's alright
	he's alright

		take these wings

	sister, no wonder
	you won't raise your head
	to the sky
	you're afraid of thunder
	it makes you cry
	and you don't know why

	there's a place that i know
	you can see
	the face of the earth
	that's where i wanna go
	on the wind of my birth
	the wind of my birth

		i'm not afraid of dyin
		it's just a setting sun
		on the rise
		come take these wings and try
		it's a world full of butterflies

	well i'd like to take you
	where the light 
	of the day began
	where the sun
	always breaks through
	shinin down like a friend
	
	i felt you shaking
	awake from your dream
	like a child
	take your heart
	from its' breaking
	and lean on a smile
	
		i'm not afraid of dyin
		it's just a setting sun
		on the rise
		come take these wings and try
		it's a world full of butterflies

	sister, no wonder
	you won't raise your head
	to the sky
	you're afraid of thunder
	but it's the fourth of july

				fine line

	day in, day out
	concrete walls
	they're blue and cold
	i'm falling
	
	stare up and down
	a concrete wall
	i'm not myself
	i'm falling

	i know
	i don't have to stay here
	i'll go
	just when i like
	i don't ever get to play here
	and everybody seems too uptight

		don't you wake me out of my bed
		before it's time
		cause i can't see the sunrise
		i'm right behind the fine line

	day in, day out
	concrete walls
	steel blue and cold
	i'm falling
	
	stare up and down
	these concrete walls
	i'm not myself
	i'm falling

	i know
	i don't have to stay here
	i'll go
	just when i like
	i don't ever get to play here
	and everybody seems too uptight

		don't you wake me out of my bed
		before it's time
		cause i can't see the sunrise
		i'm right behind the fine line

				savannah
				
	the road and i
	will spend some time
	it's very far
	but she don't mind
	her arms are long
	she takes me in
	she never asks me 
	where i've been

	i long to hear the crickets cry
	to see the sun in a southern sky ...

		eight hundred miles to savannah
		i wanna go	 i wanna go
		eight hundred miles to savannah
		i want 		 i wanna go

	the road is wise
	and i am green
	so many places
	never seen
	this city wind
	gets bitter cold
	i see my face
	growin old

	i long to ly on southern ground
	where the sun's been pourin down ...

		eight hundred miles to savannah
		i wanna go	i wanna go
		eight hundred miles to savannah
		i want		i wanna go

	the road and i
	will spend some time
	it's very far
	but she don't mind
	her arms are long 
	she takes me in
	she never asks me
	where i've been

	i'm gonna hear the crickets cry
	gonna see that sun in a southern sky ...

				give it back

	you hear me knockin at your door
	are you ever
	gonna let me in?
	you've been pacin the floor
	not  knowing where 
	to begin

	sometimes your mind
	is like a wall of steel
	you won't let me get near
	i have to tell you
	just how i feel
	and hope you will hear

			one to one
			open up to me
			all i need
			is honesty
			one to one 
			open up
			to me

	these major changes in my life
	you never ask me about them
	i know when somethin's
	not right
	how can you call me a friend?

	i know you're scared
	cause what i ask of you
	doesn't come that easy
	try to be true, you'll get the knack
	all ya gotta do
	is give it back

			one to one 
			open up to me
			all i need
			is honesty
			one to one
			open up
			to me

				one for the heart

	when everything is new
	you believe
	love is everywhere
	mama tells you
	girl, you see
	some don't know how to share

	you  made me cry
	when you said
	you'd never lie to me
	i don't know why
	but in my head
	i see it all so clearly

		so here it is	one for the heart
		here it is
		can we get started?

	i used to listen
	to every word
	that was ever spoke to me
	but some can be so cruel
	i've heard you
	twist the truth, it's easy

	i used to think
	everybody would love me
	i used to think
	everybody would understand
	i used to think 
	everybody would love me
	but now i don't know
	if you're foe or friend

	cause you made me cry
	when you said
	you'd never lie to me
	and i don't know why
	but in my head
	i see it all so clearly

		so here it is 	one for the heart
		here it is
		can we get started?

				there's a perfect place

	momma's found a house
	in the countryside
	it was built
	in seventeen ninety five
	solid as a stone

	we'll wait for flowers in the spring
	we'll listen to the pine trees sing

		oh, momma's got a home
		momma's got a home
		momma's got a home 
		of her own

	there's a perfect place
	for the rockin chair
	settle down by the window
	over there
	soft as a cradle

	she'll rock the babies when they cry
	she'll sing a favorite lullaby

		oh, momma's got a home
		momma's got a home
		momma's got a home
		of her own

	we'll whistle with the whippoorwill
	we'll watch the sun over the hill

		oh, momma's got a home
		momma's got a home
		momma's got a home of her own
		
		
			to keep her company
			when the wind blows
