GARTH BROOKS/ THE CHASE

We Shall Be Free 

This ain't comin from no profit 
Just an ordinary man 
When I close my eyes I see 
The way this world shall be 
When we all walk hand in hand 

When the last child cries for a crust of bread 
When the last man dies for just words that he said 
When there's shelter over the poorest head 
We shall be free 

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin 
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within 
When the skies and the oceans are clean again 
Then we shall be free 

We shall be free 
We shall be free 
Stand straight, walk proud 
'Cause we shall be free 

When we're free to love anyone we choose 
When this worlds big enough for all different views 
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew 
Then we shall be free 

We shall be free 
We shall be free 
Have a little faith 
Hold out 
'Cause we shall be free 

And when money talks for the very last time 
And nobody walks a step behind 
When there's only one race and that's mankind 
Then we shall be free 

We shall be free 
We shall be free 
Stand straight, walk proud, 
have a little faith, hold out 
We shall be free 

We Shall be free 

We shall be free 
Stand straight, have a little faith 
We shall be free 

We shall be free 
We shall be free 

Somewhere Other Than the Night 

He could see the storm clouds rollin' across the hill 
He barely beat the rain in from the field 
And between the backdoor slammin she heard 
him say 
"Damn this rain and damn this wasted day" 
But she'd been waiting for this day for oh so long 
She was standin in the kitchen with nothin but her 
apron on 
And in disbelief he stood and he stared awhile 
When their eyes met they both began to smile 

(Chorus) 
Somewhere other than the night 
She needs to hear I love you 
Somewhere other than the night 
She needs to know you care 
She wants to know she's needed 
And she needs to be held tight 
Some where other than the night 

They spent the day wrapped up in a blanket 
On the front porch swing 
He'd come to realize  he'd neglected certain things 
And there are times she feels alone even by his side 
It was the first time she ever saw him cry 

(Chorus) 

To know she's needed 
She needs to be held tight 
Somewhere other than the night 

Mr. Right 

I can tell by the way you been turnin men down 
Not your ordinary guy is gonna do 
You've been waitin' for that someone 
Who can turn your head around 
Well now honey, I'm that special one for you 

(chorus) 
There must be a million fish out in that ocean 
So you must find the one that's right for you somehow 
Well its up to you I'm here for years 
Or till the night time disappears 
I'm Mr. Right or Mr. Right now 

And if you choose to be my wife 
I would love you all my life 
I'd do everything your precious heart allowed 
Or we could make love love all night long 
And in the morning I'd be gone 
I'm Mr. Right or Mr. Right now 

(chorus) 

I'm M'r. Right forever or just until whenever 
Mr. Right or Mr. Right now 

Every Now And Then 

I walked down to the park last night 
Warm breeze stirring up a soft moonlight 
And my mind started drifting to way back when 
Yes I do think about you every now and then 

The other day I saw a car like you used to drive 
I got a funny feeling down deep inside 
And for the briefest moment I felt a smile begin 
Yes I do think about you every now and then 

(chorus) 
I love my life and I'd never trade 
Between what you and me had and the life I've made 
She's here and she's real, but you were too 
And every once in awhile I think about you 

I heard a song on the radio just yesterday 
The same one you always asked me to play 
And when the song was over 
I wished they'd played it again 
Yes I do think about you every now and then 

(chours) 

I've been layin' here all night listenin'
to the rain 
Talkin' to my heart trying to explain 
Why sometimes I catch myself 
Wondering what might have been 
Yes I do think about you every now and then 

Every now and then 
Every now and then 

Walking After Midnight 

I go out walkin' after midnight 
Out in the starlight 
Just like we used to do 
I'm always walking after midnight 
Searching 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 weeping 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 a-hopin' you may be 
Somewhere a-walkin' after midnight 
Searchin' for me 

Repeat last two verses 

I go out walkin' after midnight 
Searchin' for you 

Dixie Chicken 

I seen the bright lights of Memphis 
And the Commodore Hotel 
And it was there beneath a streetlamp 
Where I met a southern belle 
Well she took me to the river 
Where she cast her spell 
And it was 'neath that Memphis moonlight 
She sang this song so well 

(chorus) 

If you'll be my Dixie chicken 
I'll be your Tennesee lamb 
And we can walk together 
Down in Dixie land 
Down in Dixie land 

We hit all the hotspots 
My money flowed like wine 
Till the lowdown southern whiskey 
Began to fog my mind 
Well I don't remember church bells 
Or the money I put down 
On the white picket fence and boardwalk 
At the house on the edge of town 
Now but boy do I remember 
The strain of her refrain 
And the nights we spent together 
And the way she called my name 

(chorus) 

It's been a year since she ran away 
Guess that guitar player sure could play 
She always liked to sing along 
He was always handy with a song 
Then one night in the lobby 
Of the Commodore Hotel 
I by chance met a bartender 
Who said he knew her well 
And as he handed me a drink 
He began to hum a song 
And all the boys there at the bar 
Began to sing along 

(chorus twice)
