Lyrics:

Mable

Oh Mabeline
Im askin you this question
Oh Mable I am on my knees
Im askin you, Im beggin please
Just turn around

Oh Mabeline
I must make a confession
Oh I have loved another sure
But never one like you before
So don't you go walkin out that door and leave

Oh Im a pleadin now
for you to give me a chance
Come on and take my hand,
why don't you give me this dance
Oh Mabeline

Oh Mabeline
I never been much good at guessin
Your eyes are big and bright as stars
And they wander off at passin cars
Oh how I wish that you could tell me whats on your mind

Oh Mabeline
I would take my Smith and Wesson
And throw it deep down in the well
And tell it all to go to hell
If you would stay and promise to be mine

Oh your long black hair
Is enough for a man
To lay his weapons down
And place a bet on his land
Oh Mabeline

Track Name: Twilight / Pvt. Roberts LIVE
Private Roberts, Division 43
On his way home on a plane across the sea
He was so close now
But home still seemed so far away

Out the window Charlie watched the sky
And all those memories like clouds just passed him by
Last time they were together
Was a year ago today

They all gathered in the living room to wait
After a couple hours just assumed his plane was late
But little did they know that old Charlie wouldnt show
Not now or forever

Yeah everyone was waiting
Down at his mom and dad’s
His Aunt Caroline and his good old Uncle Doug
They even lit the candles upon his cake
Figured anytime old Charlie would show up
But he didnt, no.

In a letter to his family and friends
He said nothin’s gonna feel as good again
That his memories were better left memories
And that was that.
