    Dealing card games with the old man in the Club Car
    Penny a point – ain’t no one keeping score
    Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
    Feel the wheels rumbling ‘neath the floor
    And the sons of Pullman Porters, and the sons of Engineers
    Ride their father’s magic carpets made of steel
    And, mothers with their babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat
    And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

    City of New Orleans Singers: Willie Nelson & Cheryl Crowe; Writer: Steve Goodman

    Oh, it’s cryin’ time again, you’re gonna leave me
    I can see that faraway look in your eyes
    I can tell by the way you hold me darlin’ Oooh
    That it won’t be long before it’s cryin’ time

    Crying Time Singers Willie Nelson & Nora Jones; Writer: Buck Owens

    Love is like a dyin’ ember
    Only memories remain
    Through the ages I’ll remember
    Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain

    Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain Singers: Willie Nelson & Shania Twain Writer: Fred Rose

    I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountain in the skies
    Aching with the feeling of the freedom of an eagle as she flies
    Turning on the world, the way you smiled upon my soul as I lay dying
    Healing as the colors in the sunshine and the shadows of your eyes

    Loving You was Easier Than Anything I’ll Ever Do Again Willie Nelson & Dyan Cannon; Writer: Kris Kristofferson
