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
