“Crazy”

                                                                                         

Crazy


I’m crazy for feeling so lonely


I’m crazy


Crazy for feeling so blue


I knew you’d love me as long as you wanted


And then some day


You’d leave me for somebody new

 

Worry


Why do I let myself worry?


Wondering


What in the world did I do?


 

Oh, crazy

For thinking that my love could hold you


I’m crazy for trying


And crazy for crying


And I’m crazy for loving you


Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you


I’m crazy for trying


And crazy for crying


And I’m crazy for loving 


You

“Walking After Midnight”

                                                                                                 

I go out walkin’ after midnight


Out in the moonlight, just like we used to do


I’m always walkin’ after midnight


Searchin’ for you

 

 

I walk for miles along the highway


Well, that’s just my way of sayin’ I love you


I’m always walkin’ after midnight


Searchin’ for you

 

 

I stop to see a weepin’ willow


Cryin’ on his pillow


Maybe he’s cryin’ for me


And as the skies turn gloomy


Night winds whisper to me


I’m lonesome as I can be

 

 

I go out walkin’ after midnight


Out in the moonlight, just hoping you may be 


Somewhere a-walkin’ after midnight


Searchin’ for me

 

 

I stop to see a weepin’ willow


Cryin’ on his pillow


Maybe he’s cryin’ for me


And as the skies turn gloomy


Night winds whisper to me


I’m lonesome as I can be

 

 

I go out walkin’ after midnight


Out in the starlight, just hoping you may be 


Somewhere a-walkin’ after midnight


Searchin’ for me

“Lovesick Blues”

Got a feelin’ cause I’m blue, oh, Lord


Since my daddy said goodbye


I don’t know what I’m gonna do


All I do is sit and cry, oh, Lord


That last long day he said goodbye


Oh, Lord, I thought I would die


He’ll do ya, he’ll do me, he’s got that kinda lovin’


But, Lord, I love to hear him when he calls me sweet baby


What a beautiful dream


I hate to think it all over


I lost my heart it seems


I’ve grown so used to that man, somehow


And I’m nobody’s sugar-baby now


‘Cause I’m lonesome


I got the lovesick blues

 

 

Now I’m in love, I’m in love with a wonderful guy


That’s what’s the matter with me


Well, I’m in love, I’m in love with a wonderful guy


But he don’t care about me


Well, I tried and I tried to keep him satisfied


But he just wouldn’t stay


But now that he is leavin’, this is all I’ve got to say

 

 

I got a feelin’ cause I’m blue, oh Lord, since my daddy said goodbye


I don’t know what I’m gonna do


I lost my heart it seems


I’ve grown so used to that man, somehow


And I’m nobody’s sugar-baby now


‘Cause I’m lonesome


I got the lovesick blues

 

 

I’ve grown so used to that man, and how


And I’m nobody’s sugar-baby now


‘Cause I’m lonesome


I got the lovesick blues

“Blue Moon of Kentucky”

I said blue moon of Kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue


Blue moon of kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

 

 

It was on one moonlit night, stars shinin’ bright


Whispered on high, love said goodbye

I said blue moon of Kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

 

 

Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue


Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

 

 

Well, it was on one moonlit night, stars shinin’ bright


Whispered on high, your lover said goodbye


I said blue moon of kentucky, keep on a-shinin’


Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue


Left me blue


Left me blue


Left me blue

“I Fall To Pieces”

 

I fall to pieces


Each time I see you again


I fall to pieces


How can I be just your friend?

 

 

You want me to act like we’ve never kissed


You want me to forget (to forget)


Pretend we’ve never met (never met)


And I’ve tried and I’ve tried, but I haven’t yet


You walk by and I fall to pieces

 

 

I fall to pieces


Each time someone speaks your name


I fall to pieces


Time only adds to the flame

 

 

You tell me to find someone else to love


Someone who’ll love me too (love me too)


The way you used to do (used to do)


But each time I go out with someone new


You walk by and I fall to pieces

 


You walk by and I fall to pieces
