RUMOR HAS IT




Climb That Mountain High

(Don Schlitz/Reba McEntire) Red sun a-rising, over the hill I've had enough of this desert to last from now until I'm tired of living day-to-day and hand-to-mouth This could be the day I finally find my way out Chorus: I'm gonna climb that mountain high I'm gonna see what's on the other side I'm gonna kiss this town good-bye I'm gonna climb that mountain How I arrived here, heaven only knows Seems more like the kind of place the devil would've chose To spend my life here, is more than I can do I know somewhere down the road my dream will come true Repeat Chorus If I stay here forever What will I have to show But if I make it over Then everyone will know I'm gonna climb that mountain high Repeat Chorus

Rumor Has It

(Bruce Burch/Vern Dant/Larry Shell) I overheard a conservation your name was mentioned in But they didn't talk about us, only her again I didn't want to listen but I hung on every word They said some things I wish I hadn't heard Chorus: Rumor has it she has you Rumor has it you love her too Talk is cheap but the price is high when it's true Rumor has it she has you This town's so small a whisper can be heard a mile away And people here will gossip when there's nothing else to say I wouldn't have believed my ears but I see it in your eyes The stories going 'round this town aren't lies Rumor has it she has you Rumor has it you love her too Talk is cheap but the price is high when it's true Rumor has it she has you Whoa...rumor has it she has you

Waitin' For The Deal To Go Down

(Bobby Fischer, Austin Roberts, Charlie Black) Oh, you've sold me you hold me You've told me I'll be getting all your love You can go wrong If you hold on for so long Just because you hate to give up Do I love you ooh ooh I'm afraid I do Do you love me, once upon a time I was sure I knew Chorus: I don't like what I been thinkin' If it's true, Oh you know I'm a fool Face to face you promise me forever But the ring's still sittin' in a store downtown And I'm still sittin' here Waitin' for the deal to go down I get lonely and lonely is only The hardest way to spend the night Then you call me You call me and stall me And swear you're gonna make it right So I hang on Oh that's just the way things are But the pay off I been waitin' for Just might break my heart Repeat Chorus Bridge: Is there someone out there I don't know about Convince me babe beyond the shadow of a doubt I don't like what I been thinkin' If it's true, Oh you know I'm a fool Face to face you promise me forever But the ring's still sittin' in a store downtown And I'm still sittin' here Waitin' for the deal to go down Waitin' for the deal to go down

You Lie

(Bobby Fischer/Charlie Black/Austin Roberts) We lie in the dark I know you're awake The only sounds are the sounds this old house makes But, Oh, how I long, I long to hear your voice] Desperate to talk, yearning to touch Burning inside 'cause I want you so much So I say I need you and leave you no choice Chorus: You lie you don't want to hurt me So you lie, buy a little time, and I go along What else can I do, maybe it's wrong But you know how much I love you So you lie 'til you can find a way to say goodbye You lie How long until you just can't go on And the urge to break loose is just too strong You should let go that's what you want to do Oh but you don't know, you don't know If it's the right thing to do Repeat Chorus & tag

Now You Tell Me

(Donny Kees/Shawna Harrington) What a surprise Never thought I'd hear from you Whatever made you call From out of the blue What did you say I must be hearing things Things that I never thought would come from you Chorus: Now you tell me That you love me desperately Why did you wait so long to say those words to me Oh you made me crazy I don't know what to do Now you tell me Not that's there's somebody new I think you should know There's someone here with me O bet he can tell you must be someone dear to me So I better go 'Cause you still get to me Just when I thought I was over you This is all I need Repeat Chorus & tag

Fancy

(Bobbie Gentry) I remember it all very well lookin' back It was the summer I turned eighteen We lived in a one room, rundown shack On the outskirts of New Orleans We didn't have money for food or rent To say the least we were hard pressed Then Mama spent every last penny we had To buy me a dancin' dress Mama washed and combed and curled my hair And she painted my eyes and lips then I stepped into a satin dancin' dress that had a split on the side clean up to my hip It was red velvet trim and it fit me good Standin' back from the lookin' glass There stood a woman where a half gown kid had stood She said here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Mama dabbed a little bit of perfume on my neck And she kissed my cheek Then I saw the tears wellin' up in her troubled eyes When she started to speak She looked at a pitiful shack And then she looked at me and took a ragged breath She said your Pa's run off and I'm real sick And the baby's gonna starve to death She handed me a heart shaped locket that said "To thine own self be true" And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across The tow of my high heel shoe It sounded like somebody else that was talkin' Askin' Mama what do I do She said just be nice to the gentlemen Fancy And they'll be nice to you She said here's your chance Fancy don't let me down Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Lord forgive me for what I do, but if you want out Well it's up to you Now don't let me down you better start movin' uptown Well, that was the last time I saw my Ma The night I left that rickety shack The welfare people came and took the baby Mama died and I ain't been back But the wheels of fate had started to turn And for me there was no way out And it wasn't very long 'til I knew exactly What my Mama's been talkin' about I knew what I had to do but I made myself this solemn vow That I's gonna be a lady someday Though I don't know when or how I couldn't see spending the rest of my life With my head hung down in shame you know I might have been born just plain white trash But Fancy was my name Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down It wasn't very long after a benevolent man Took me off the street And one week later I was pourin' his tea In a five room hotel suite I charmed a king, a congressman And an occasional aristocrat Then I got me a Georgia mansion In an elegant New York townhouse flat And I ain't done bad Now in this world there's a lot of self-righteous hippocrits That would call me bad And criticize Mama for turning me out No matter how little we had But though I ain't had to worry 'bout nothin' For nigh on fifteen years I can still hear the desperation in my poor Mama's voice ringin' in my ear She said, here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down Lord, forgive me for what I do But if you want out well it's up to you Now don't let me down Your Mama's gonna help you uptown I guess she did

Fallin' Out Of Love

(Jon Imms) He says he loves her...what can you say to that He's made up his mind and there ain't nothin' you can do And as you swallow hard...maybe you drive all night Tryin' to figure out where the whole thing started goin' wrong And in the silence something begins to unravel You never knew him like you'll be knowing him now Chorus: Fallin' out of love and back into your life Pullin' your heart out from under the knife Closin' the door on all those dreams you used to know Fallin' out of love and back on your feet Turnin' away from that dead end street Finding out that nothing feels as good as letting go That's when he called you up out of the blue one day And you know he thinks he's talkin' to the girl you used to be So when you tell him he's just a memory Ain't it funny how his voice cracks when you're sayin' goodbye And in the silence something begins to unravel He never knew you like he'll be knowing you now Repeat Chorus Tag: Oh and nothing feels as good as letting go He said he loved her

This Picture

(S. Alan Taylor/Lisa Palas) That old picture with my arm around you Tore it to pieces this morning at two Score one for me I took your portrait off the living room wall Then I started on the ones in the hall Had a bonfire I decided it was time to forget So I got rid of every picture you left Chorus: But what do I do with this picture of you in my mind I close my eyes and I still see you saying goodbye I know I'd be okay if I could just throw away This picture I walk alone down a crowded street And see your face in everybody I meet When's it gonna end Every single night I crawl into bed Hoping sleep will keep you out of my head I should know better Everytime I turn around there you are I never thought your memory would go this far Repeat Chorus twice & tag

You Remember Me

(Jesse Winchester) They say no one should call on you Unless She's your permission to But me, I just came anyway I couldn't care less what you say 'Cause I know you from long before You hid behind a stained glass door And walked around And looked your old friends up and down But anyway, I thought I'd come give you a look At where you're from and let you know I still recall what a child you are underneath it all Chorus: You remember me the funny way I cry The funny way I sit there when someone says goodbye The funny way I wind up lost when someone sets me free Why sure, you remember me Well, I won't take up your whole day I've said about all I have to say I guess I'll be moving on I know you'll be glad to see me gone Tonight is our last night in town So don't worry 'bout me hanging around Tomorrow night it's Calgary And you'll be good and rid of me Repeat Chorus twice

That's All She Wrote

(Joe Schemay, John Hobbs) Well it looks like you're alone again I heard about your misery She took you around the bend And now you're coming back to me Chorus: That's all she wrote Forget about her let her go That's all she wrote And I love to say I told you so Think I know what happened late last night I can tell by looking in your eyes She spelled it out in black and white And she left no room for compromise Repeat Chorus I could see it from a mile away But I don't wanna rub it in All I want is just to hear you say That you're ready, are you ready To love me again Repeat Chorus We can put all behind us now Let's pretend it never happened We'll forget about the pain somehow If you're ready, are you ready To love me again Repeat Chorus
