That’s All – Willie Nelson

And a promise to be near each time you call. And the only heart I own For you and you alone That’s all, That’s all I can only give you country Walks in springtime And a hand to hold when Leaves begin to fall; And a love whose burning light Will warm the winter’s night […]

Keep Me From Blowing Away – Willie Nelson

In a world where the sunshine Finds excuses for not hangin’ ’round I squandered emotions On the slightest of notions And the first easy loving I found But soon all the good times The gay times and play times Like colors run together and fade Oh Lord if you hear me Touch me and hold […]
