Long Grey Mare

I got a long grey mare,
she won't let me ride.

Long grey mare,

We used to ride so hard,
oh, till we couldn't take no more, yeah.

Long grey mare,

And when I dig you with my spur,
you turn around the other way.

Merry Go Round
(P.A. Greenbaum)

When I first met you baby,
I didn't even know your name.
When I first met you baby,
I didn't even know your name.
Oh, I was feelin' low on the ground.
Bad luck and evil women were to blame.

I never realized
how sweet and kind one woman can be.
I never realized, people,
how sweet and kind a woman can be.
Oh, but when I looked in your eyes,
I knew true love had come to me.
Yeah.

Take my hand,
hold it tight and don't let go.
Take my hand, take my hand,
hold it tight and don't let go.
'Cause our love is like a merry-go-round,
forever and ever round it goes.

Need Your Love So Bad
(Little Willie John)

Need someone's hand
to lead me through the night.
Need someone's arms
to hold and squeeze me tight.
'Cause when the night begins,
I'm at an end,
because I need your love so bad.

Need some lips
to feel next to mine.
Need someone to stand up
and tell me when I'm lyin'.
When the lights are low,
and it's time to go,
that's when I need your love so bad.

Why don't you give it up,
bring it on home to me,
or write it on a piece of paper, darlin',
so it can be read to me.
Tell me that you love me
and stop driving me mad,
beacause I, I need your love so bad.

Need your soft voice,
talk to me at night.
Don't want you to worry baby,
'cause I know we can make everything allright.
Listen to my plea baby,
bring it home to me,
because I need your love so bad.

Will you love me tomorrow
like you say you love me now?

Too many times I've given too much,
now give me your love in return.

'cause my heart just can't stand another lie.
And if you can't love me tomorrow,
