Alabama Song Lyrics
Pardon Me
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

You say the time has come for you to go
Why you've decided this I'll never know
You say you've lost the love you felt for me
Well baby you won't find it if you leave
*Pardon me if I don't understand
How a love like ours can turn out bad
You tell me I'll be fine alone
Without the love I'm leaning on
Well pardon me if I don't understand*
I can't see how you'll be happy far away
But what's best for you is not for me to say
So I'll try to keep my feelings to myself
But forgive me if I don't do too well
(repeat chorus)
You tell me I'll be fine alone
Without the love I'm leaning on
Well pardon me if I don't understand



(*chorus*)


Long Black Train
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

I've been walking these mean streets
Hard concrete beneath my feet
Ain't found a friendly face among the crowd
The city's like a Christmas tree
A light for every dreamer's dream
But it seems mine has finally burned out
*Long black train take me home
I've worn out my welcome here it's time to go
I have to face the music this just ain't where I belong
Long black train take me home*
I should've known I was mistaken
when I thought that I'd be making
A name for myself in Babylon
Though I've tried to do my best
The suit and ties are not impressed
So with what's left of my pride I'll carry on
(repeat chorus)
I'm gonna trade my guitar for a ticket
Then climb aboard and ride you down the track
I know I'm licked but it's hard to admit it
Maybe someday you can bring me back
(repeat chorus)
Long black train take me home


(*chorus*)




Call My Name
Written By Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

When the quiet in this old house shows no mercy
And the lonesome just won't go away
That's when your restless spirit haunts me
And I swear I hear you call my name
*I always loved the sound of your sweet voice
But now that sound makes my poor heart break
You're long gone baby that's for certain
'Cause I'm a hurtin' when I hear you call my name*
I pray when I pass on over
That we will meet in the place where lost souls stay
Maybe then when I look over my shoulder
You'll be there when I hear you call my name
(repeat chorus)
I'm certain I hear you call my name


(*chorus*)



The One That Got Away (Got Away With My Heart)
Written By Allison Moorer and Kostas

*Oh the one that got away got away with my heart
Broke into my world and tore it apart
I should pick up the pieces but I don't know where to start
Oh the one that got away got away with my heart*
I lost my heart so easily I feel like a fool
Against my better judgment I broke my own rule
I didn't think I'd fall in love but what can I do
Oh I'm hurting and missing him so
(repeat chorus)
If I felt any better I think I would die
'Cause all I do is sit at home, think of him and cry
But he ain't worth a single tear that falls from my eye
So why do I still love him anyway
(repeat chorus)


(*chorus*)




I Found A Letter
Written By Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

I found a letter that you wrote me
It said I was your one and only
And you would never ever leave my loving arms
But the truth is all that matters
Your pretty words no longer flatter
'Cause I know they didn't come from your heart
I found your guitar in the closet
I remember when you bought it
And how you serenaded me under the stars
Now there's no one here to play it
You changed your tune I hate to say it
But the songs didn't come from your heart
In your heart I believed I'd found the love of my dreams
I hoped my search was through
But now all I'm finding are memories that remind me
What a fool I was to think it was true
I found your ring still on my finger
It's been there since we saw the preacher
And swore to him in front of God death do us part
It's just a 14 karat trinket
But like my promise I will keep it
Even though it didn't come from your heart
I found a letter that you wrote me



Easier To Forget
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

I've heard it said life leaves you memories that are precious
If that's true it hasn't left me any yet
There are none that I thought of I can cherish
For me it's easier to forget
*Looking back is not the way to mend my heartache
Remembering only brings me regret
When I dig up the past
I find a love that didn't last
So for me it's easier to forget*
I'd hate to think these memories I've been given
Are the only ones I'm ever going to get
'Cause it hurts if I try to relive 'em
For me it's easier to forget
(repeat chorus)
For me it's easier to forget

(*chorus*)




Set You Free
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

I found your bag this morning
Did you pack it by yourself
If you would've asked me
I'd have given you some help
I hate to disappoint you
But I had a hunch
You would soon be leaving
So I beat you to the punch
*I'll tell you a secret baby
I let go first
If I was still holding on
Then maybe I'd feel worse
But I seen this day coming
So it don't bother me
I've already set you free*
I'm glad you're finally going
But boy you took your time
I'd begun to wonder
if you had changed your mind
So you don't have to sneak out
You're not going to let me down
That already happened
I'm over it by now
(repeat chorus)
I've already set you free

(*chorus*)



A Soft Place To Fall

Written by Allison Moorer and Gwil Owen

Daylight has found me here again
You can ask me anything but where I've been
Things that used to matter seem so small
When you're looking for a soft place to fall
Don't misunderstand me baby please
I didn't mean to bring back memories
You should know the reason why I called
I was looking for a soft place to fall
Looking for a soft place
Nothing more than a small taste
Of a love that ended long ago
Looking for a place to hide
A warm bed on a cold night
I didn't mean to hurt you
no no no
Looking out your window at the dawn
Baby when you wake up I'll be gone
You're the one who taught me after all
How to find a soft place to fall
You're the one who taught me after all
How to find a soft place to fall




Tell Me Baby
Written by Walter Hyatt

Tell me baby how long I'm going to cry
How long I'm going to sigh for you
Tell me baby do you remember the promises you made me
Rolling down the road with the sky so blue
*I'm grieving for you
Oh I miss you so
Believe me darling
Oh you just don't know
I need you and I want you*
So tell me baby
What are you going to do
Someday you'll want me too
I know
When you want me
You better hope that I don't leave you lonely
Rolling down the road with no place to go
(repeat chorus)
So tell me baby
How long I'm going to cry
How long I'm going to sigh for you
Tell me baby
Do you remember the promises you made me
Rolling down the road with the sky so blue
Rolling down the road with the sky so blue


(*chorus*)


Is Heaven Good Enough For You
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

Heard the preacher at service
Declare you'd gone home that day
To meet the maker and his servants
And take a rest amidst his grace
He said now that you're in heaven
Your trials on earth are through
But I didn't hear him mention
If heaven's good enough for you
He claimed you feel no more sorrow
Since you're free from all life's fears
But can the blessed on God's mountain
Love you more than I down here
I was raised not to question
Promises the bible makes
But how could the Almighty
Make such a terrible mistake
Did the Lord's illumination
Shine upon you from his throne
When he witnessed my sweet angel
Suffer on the long road home
If there's really no more teardrops
And the streets are paved with gold
Send me down some reassurance
I don't believe what I've been told
If there really is a Kingdom
Where you start your life anew
Won't you please somehow convince me
That heaven's good enough for you
Back
