I Only Want You For Christmas-Alan Jackson


The snow is falling It's Christmas Eve
Presents are wrapped Under the tree
Is there one for me?

I only want you for Christmas, baby
I don't need nothing else
I only want you for Christmas, baby
Tie a ribbon 'round yourself
Oh, tie a ribbon 'round yourself

I ain't gonna write no letter Send north to the pole
Cause what I'm wanting this year Saint Nick don't need to know

Oh pick it Rudolph Go about it Frosty
I only want you for Christmas, baby
I don't need nothing else
I only want you for Christmas, baby
Tie a ribbon 'round yourself
Oh, tie a ribbon 'round yourself

So put on your Christmas stockings I'll find that mistletoe
Let's get into the the holiday spirits
And honey ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho

I only want you for Christmas, baby
I don't need nothing else
I only want you for Christmas, baby
Tie a ribbon 'round yourself
I only want you for Christmas, baby
I don't need nothing else
I only want you for Christmas, baby
Tie a ribbon 'round yourself
Oh, tie a ribbon 'round yourself

[Spoken:]
Wooo oooo (train noise) Oh I had a bicycle I had a train too
Woooo I only want you

If We Make It Through December-Alan Jackson

If we make it through December
Everything's gonna be all right, I know
It's the coldest time of winter
And I shiver when I see the falling snow
If we make it through December
Got plans to be in a warmer town
Come summer time
Maybe even California
If we make it through December
We'll be fine

Got laid off down at the factory
And their timing's not the greatest
In the world
Heaven knows I've been working hard
Wanted Christmas to be right
For daddy's girl
I don't mean to hate December
It's meant to be this happy time of year
And my little girl don't understand
Why daddy can't afford no Christmas here

If we make it through December
Everything's gonna be all right, I know
It's the coldest time of winter
And I shiver when I see the falling snow
If we make it through December
Got plans to be in a warmer town
Come summer time
Maybe even California
If we make it through December
We'll be fine...

The Angels Cried-Alan Jackson

Honky Tonk Christmas-Alan Jackson

Pretty Paper is playing on the jukebox
And mistletoe is hanging above the bar
I want to thank you for this
Broken heart that I got
Merry Christmas Girl
Wherever in the world you are.

It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
For these silent nights at home are killing me
It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
But I'll be over you by New Year's Eve.

Blue Christmas turn it up I wanna hear it
So I can unwrap all them Mem'ries in my mind
Hey Joe!! pour me some Christmas spirit
If I make it through December I'll be fine.

It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
For these silent nights at home are killing me
It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
But I'll be over you by New Year's Eve.

Yeah, I'll be over you by
New Years Eve...

Mercury Blues-Alan Jackson



Well if I had money,
I'd tell you what I'd do,
I go downtown buy a Mercury or two.
Crazy bout a Mercury,
Lord I'm crazy bout a Mercury,
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury & cruise it up & down the road.

Well the girl I love,
I stole her from a friend.
He got lucky stole her back again,
She heard he had a Mercury.
Lord she's crazy bout a Mercury.
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury & cruise it up & down the road.

Hey now mama
You look so fine
Driven round in your Mercury 49'
Crazy bout a Mercury
Lord I'm crazy bout a Mercury
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury & cruise it up & down the road.

Well my baby went out
Didn't stay long,
Bought herself a Mercury, come a cruisen home.
She's crazy bout a Mercury,
Yeah she's crazy bout a Mercury.
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury & cruise it up & down the road.
(Ahhh cruise now)

Well if I had money,

If It Ain't One Thing (It's You)-Alan Jackson

Well I guess it's just not my day
The wind blew my morning paper away
Then I cut my toe on a sliver of glass
From the stormdoor you broke when you left here so fast

If it ain't one thing it's you
If you've heard that I'm going crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever I do
If it ain't one thing
It's you

Well I rented that movie you hate
But that old VCR just chewed up the tape
Then I went to the freezer thought I'd cook me a steak
All I found was that old piece of our wedding cake

If it ain't one thing it's you
If you've heard that I'm going crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever I do
If it ain't one thing
It's you

But I never knew that I needed you so
But now that I've lost you, I can't let you go

If it ain't one thing oh it's you
If you've heard that I'm going crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever I do
If it ain't one thing
It's you
Oh if it ain't one thing
It's you

She Likes It Too-Alan Jackson



I got my first motorcycle when I turned sixteen
I remember my mamma raisin' cane with me
She said, Son tell me why you wanna ride that thing
She didn't know about the blonde at the Dairy Queen

I got my own reasons why I do what I do
I like to ride motorcycles
And she likes it too
I like to ride motorcycles
And he likes it too

I always wore my hair just a little too long
Daddy didn't like it and he made no bones
If I'd have gotten it cut like he wanted me to
She wouldn't have had nothin' left to run her fingers through

I got my own reasons why I do what I do
I like to wear my hair long
And she likes it too
I like to wear my hair long
And she likes it too

I remember ridin' around with my buddies back home
Listenin' to some country on the radio
When they tried to change the station to some Rock 'n' Roll
I'd turn the Opry up just as loud as it'd go

I got my own reasons why I do what I do
I like country music
She likes it too
I like country music
She likes it too

Now I got a big Harley
And my hair is still long
And I'm still listening to a country song

I got my own reasons
Why I do what I do
I know what I like
She likes it too
I know what I like
She likes it too
Yeah I know what I like
She likes it too

Tropical Depression-Alan Jackson

Up To My Ears In Tears-Alan Jackson

(Who Says) You Can't Have It All-Alan Jackson

A stark-naked light bulb hangs over my head
There's one lonely pillow on my double bed
I've got a ceiling, a floor and four walls
Who says you can't have it all

My room's decorated with pictures of you
Your letters wallpaper this shrine to the blues
I've got precious memories at my beck and call
Who says you can't have it all

I've got everything a broken heart needs
Oh, I'm doin' fine don't you worry 'bout me
'Cause I'm Lord and Master
Of a fool's Taj Mahal
Who says you can't have it all

I've got everything a broken heart needs
Oh, I'm doin' fine don't you worry 'bout me
'Cause I'm Lord and Master
Of a fool's Taj Mahal
Who says you can't have it all
Oh, who says you can't have it all

I Don't Need The Booze (To Get A Buzz On)-Alan Jackson

Well I've been known to tie one on and honky tonk 'til half past three
But the party don't get started 'til my baby pours her love on me
She's a hundred proof, Lord she's smooth
She makes me moan all night long
So I don't need the booze to get a buzz on

I've tried it all from Tennessee Whiskey
To Ozark Mountain Moonshine
But it's her sweet love that packs the punch
And keeps me higher than a Georgia pine
My Southern Comfort don't come in a bottle
I get a double shot of love homegrown
So I don't need the booze to get a buzz on

My little country girl makes my head whirl and my knees begin to shake
I can't walk a chalk line, I ain't a-talking or a-thinking straight
Yeah I'm hooked on my baby's love
There ain't nothing in a jug this strong
So I don't need the booze to get a buzz on

I've tried it all from Tennessee Whiskey
To Ozark Mountain Moonshine
But it's her sweet love that packs the punch
And keeps me higher than a Georgia pine
My Southern Comfort don't come in a bottle
I get a double shot of love homegrown
So I don't need the booze to get a buzz on

I wear a Blue Ribbon grin every now and then
But I don't need that to get stoned
No I don't need the booze to get a buzz on
No I don't need the booze to get a buzz on

Working Class Hero-Alan Jackson

A callused right hand
Holds a shiny gold watch
For thirty years spent on the clock
But you won't see no tears
From this workin' class hero
He's always been hard as a rock

But he knows he's too old
To really start over
Besides he just wouldn't know how
I guess he's just glad
That he's not alone
But he's got to wonder what now

'Cause there's no hall of fame for that working class hero
No statute carved out of stone
And his greatest reward is the love of a woman
And his children
So after he's gone
That old working class hero lives on

That three-bedroom house
He built in the '50s
Seems so much bigger today
With just him and mama
And not many bills
'Cause all of the kids moved away

What he's done with his life
Might not be remembered
But he's got every right to be proud
'Cause the blood sweatin' years
Of this workin' class hero
Is really what livin's about

'Cause there's no hall of fame for that working class hero
No statute carved out of stone
And his greatest reward is the love of a woman
And his children
So after he's gone
That old workin' class hero lives on

Yes, that workin' class hero lives on
That workin' class hero lives on

Walkin' The Floor Over Me-Alan Jackson

There's a lady living right above me
Pretty as a picture on the wall
Once I helped her with a bag of groceries
We met a time or two out in the hall

She told me somebody hurt her feelings
The hurt that's in her eyes is plain to see
Slowly she's been wearing out my ceiling
Walkin' the floor over me

Every night I hear her cryin'
Cryin' over some old memory
A little of my heart is down here dyin'
'Cause she's walkin' the floor over me

Back and forth I followed every footstep
Countin' long enough to fall asleep
Had the sweetest dream last night 'cause I dreamt
She was walkin' the floor over me

Every night I hear her cryin'
Cryin' over some old memory
A little of my heart is down here dyin'
'Cause she's walkin' the floor over me
That woman is walkin' the floor over me

From A Distance-Alan Jackson

Just another bar
With loud guitars
Smoke and candles burning low
And the same ol' boys
Their backs to the bar
Staring across a crowded floor
Then I hear a familiar sound
Your voice laughing out loud

From a distance I can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But I can't hold you like I want to
But I can love you from a distance

So I take a chair
In a corner somewhere
You can't see me
But I can look at you
And I remember those times
When I looked in your eyes
The way that he now looks at you
Deep down I know it's over
But it hurts me when he's so much closer

From a distance I can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But I can't hold you like I want to
But I can love you from a distance

And if I can't hold you near me
I'll just hold onto your memory

From a distance I can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But I can't hold you like I want to
But I can love you from a distance
I'll always love you from a distance

Just Playin' Possum-Alan Jackson

I parked my car 'round back
I've got the shades pulled down
I told everybody including my mama
I was leaving town
But I've been right here
Since you've been gone
Belly-up at the bottom of a bottle
Listening to George Jones

And just playin' possum
Laying low
I've got hundred watts of hurtin'
Coming through the speakers of my stereo
Don't want to see nobody
Nowhere I want to go
I'm just playin' possum
And laying low

I'm gonna hide my heart
And be a love recluse
Oh I could cry on my best friend's shoulder
But there ain't no use
I need an expert on
The pain I'm going through
So I'll keep George on the old turntable
'Til I'm over you

And just playin' possum
Laying low
I've got hundred watts of hurtin'
Coming through the speakers of my stereo
Don't want to see nobody
Nowhere I want to go
I'm just playin' possum
And laying low

He's playin' possum
And he's laying low

Love's Got A Hold On You-Alan Jackson

I called my doctor on the telephone
"Help me doctor, there's something wrong
I can't shake it, it's gone too far"
He said, "Tell me what your symptoms are"

[Chorus:]
I said "My hands are sweaty and my knees are weak
I can't eat and I can't sleep
It's turning me every way but loose"
He said, "It sounds like love's got a hold on you
No doubt, love's got a hold on you"

I told my buddies I was settling down
No more of this running 'round
They looked at me like I was a fool
And said "Come on tell us what's wrong with you"

[Chorus]

Well I tossed and turned 'til the morning light
Holding my pillow hanging on for life
There ain't nothing I can do
They said, "It sounds like love's got a hold on you
Sounds like love's got a hold on you"

[Chorus]
