    MURDERED SOME ONES HEART
    YOU CANT BLAME ME IF

    OF FORTUNE TURN
    NOTHING LEFT TO PROVE
    AND HE WHO PAYS THE PIPER
    CALLS THE TUNE

    ILL JUST LOOK AT YOU
    STROLL DOWN THAT ROAD
    TRADING COUNTRY
    FOR ROCK AND ROLL
    LOSIN BIT BY BIT
    ALONG THE WAY
    TO FAME AND FORTUNE
    I SEE YOU EVERY DAY
    I BET YOU DIDNT EVEN
    NOTICE I WAS GONE
    SO IVE BEEN HOLDING ON

    YOUR SWEET SO CALLED SOMETHING
    MURDERED SOME ONES HEART
    YOU CANT BLAME ME IF
    I COULDNT KNEEL ENOUGH

    YOU’VE INSULTED ME IN
    EVERY POSSIBLE WAY
    NOW I’VE GOT NOTHIN

    TO CLIMB THAT LATTER
    THE MORE I FALL
    I GUESS MY LIFE WASNT BOUT NOTHING
    for you,…AFTER ALL

    ===================

    ===================

    I STILL SEE GLITTER
    THROUGH THE DOORWAY
    ANOTHER HOUSE
    OF BROKEN DREAMS

    WHEN THE BACK HAND
    OF MY OLD MAN
    USED TO LAND
    ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD

    SO I LEARNED TO STAY
    OUT OF HIS WAY
    BUT THATS ALL RIGHT
    CAUSE IM OKEY

    AINT NOTHING BUT
    ANOTHER DAY
    AND SO I SAY
    IS CHRISTMAS OVER YET?????
    =====
    SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
    DONT COME ROUND HERE
    DONT DANCE THESE STREETS
    OF BLOOD N BEER

    WE RAN OUTTA TIME
    AND TIME FORGOT
    CAUSE YOU’VE BEEN GONE
    FOR SO DAMN LONG

    SO DONT BOTHER KNOCK
    CAUSE NO ONES HOME
    YOU SOLD IT OUT
    BODY AND SOUL

    AT THE PAWN SHOP
    DOWN THE ROAD
    FOR A CHILD IN A MANGER
    IN SWADDLING CLOTHS
    ====
    ITS GONNA TAKE MORE
    THAT RIBBONS AND BOWS
    TO UNWRAP THE CRADLE
    LEFT ON YOUR DOOR

    THE MAN ON THE CORNER
    DRESSED IN RED
    THE SMELL OF WHISKEYS
    ON HIS BREATH

    HE’S WEARIN A SMILE
    THAT CANT HIDE THE PAIN
    MIGHT AS WELL PUT
    A GUN TO HIS HEAD

    SO HE SAY’S, GET IT OVER WITH
    I CANT STOP THESE
    VOICES IN MY HEAD
    SAYIN OVER N OVER N OVER AGAIN

    IM SCARED TO DEATH
    IS CHRISTMAS OVER YET??????
    ====
    NOW GLITTER ON THE
    WINDOWS STILL SHINE
    AND THE CHRISTMAS
    SPIRT STILL RYMES

    BACK IN THE DAY
    WHEN THE BACK HAND
    OF MY OLD MAN
    USED TO LAND

    ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD
    BACK WHEN I COULD STILL FORGET
    THIS FEEL OF HOMESICK
    CAUSE NO ONE CARED ENOUGH

    TO KEEP YOUR GHOST ALIVE
    SO WHAT’S NEXT, IS CHRISTMAS OVER YET???????

    ===========
    BECAUSE YOU SAID SO / ANOTHER ANGEL FALLS
    ==========================================
    I WOKE UP TWO TIMES LAST NIGHT
    AND I WAS SCARED TO DEATH
    YOU WERE, TOSSING AND TURNING
    I HAD A BAD FEELING BOUT THIS

    I COULD FEEL YOU BURNIN UP
    YOUR EYES SHINING IN THE DARK
    YOUR BROKE LIKE FIRE ON GLASS
    TEARS POURING THROUGH THE CRACKS

    AS THE FEVER GROWS HIGHER
    YOUR TALKIN IN YOUR SLEEP
    BOUT WHAT YOU WONT DARE TELL ME
    I HOLD MY BREATH TO HEAR YOU WHISPER
    =====
    DO YOU LOVE ME? AND SO YOU SAID NO
    YOU SAID NO IT WASNT ME
    I BIT MY LIPS HARD NOT TO SCREAM
    OF WHAT YOU’VE DONE AND WHAT IVE SEEN
    I AINT THE ONE WHO MAKES YOU SIGN
    UNDERNEATH THE COVERS DEAP IN THE NIGHT
    (I WONDER) WHATS MY NAME GONNA BE TONIGHT????

    I HOLD MY BREATH TO HEAR YOU WHISPER
    YOUR WHISPER SAID NO IT WASNT ME
    IT WASNT ME MELTIN YOUR SOUL
    ITS JUST ME JUST ANOTHER GHOST
    N SO ANOTHER ANGEL FALLS IM AT THE BOTTOM OF BROKEN
    BECAUSE YOU SAID SO BECAUSE YOU SAID NO
    =====
    AS THE FEVER GROWS HIGHER
    YOU WERE TALING IN YOUR SLEEP
    YOU WERE KICKIN AND SCREAMIN
    THE WALLS ARE CLOSIN IN ON ME

    YOUR WERE TALKIN IN YOUR SLEEP
    BOUT HOW I WOULDNT UNDERSTAND
    DONT, DONT SAY WHAT IM ABOUT TO HEAR
    I WOULD RATHER BE DEAD
    (I HOLD MY BREATH TO HEAR YOU WHISPER)
    =====
    DO YOU LOVE ME? AND SO YOU SAID NO
    YOU SAID NO IT WASNT ME
    I BIT MY LIPS HARD NOT TO SCREAM

    UNDERNEATH THE COVERS DEAP IN THE NIGHT
    SO TELL ME, WHO’S HEART YOU GONNA PUT A BULLET IN TONIGHT
    (I WONDER) WHOS HEART YOU GONNA BREAK TONIGHT???

    YOU HAVE TO SAY I NEED TO KNOW
    DID YOU EVER LOVE ME? YOUR WHISPER SAID NO
    IT WASNT ME, I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN
    BY THE WAY YOU LOOKED AT ME AND CRIED
    THEN AGAIN YOU NEVER SAID A WORD
    A PERFECT WORLD BEFORE THE FALL
    SO JUST LIKE THAT ANOTHER ANGEL FALLS
    JUST BECAUSE YOU SAID SO
    =====
    IN A HURRY I DRESS TO LEAVE
    AWAY FROM YOU AND WHO I USED TO BE
    I DONT HAVE A HEART STRONG ENOUGH FOR BOTH OF US
    WHEN THE GHOST(S) COME(S) TO TOWN
    I BET YOU WONT EVEN NOTICE THAT IM GONE (IM NOT AROUND)
    SO I GUESS I GOTTA GO (I THINK ITS TIME TO GO)
    BECAUSE I SAID SO

    LIE TO ME WHEN YOU WAKE
    CAUSE I DONT KNOW HOW MUCH MORE I CAN TAKE
    AND I KNOW ITS MORE THAN CLEAR
    IM JUST ANOTHER GHOST AT THE BOTTOM OF BROKEN
    AND SO ANOTHER ANGEL FALLS
    BECAUSE YOU SAID NO

    WHEN YOU STOPPED CALLING OUT FOR ME
    IT WAS YOU HIM YOU WAS CALLING FOR
    IT WAS HIM, IT WASNT ME

  5. Dear Mr.James or reader
    My name is Matt Marshall, i am a local Artist here in Nashville. I heard through friends on the row that you were starting your own label. Congrats! I am not a song-writer, just singer/entertainer. I have been recording songs here for about 5yrs. Mr. Tom Shapiro has been pitchn me songs along with Kelly Lovelace and Roger Murrah of Bug Music, also picked up a few songs from Mark Springer and Bill Anderson, Tracy Bryd, Tony Martin and Mark Nesler, Frank Rogers and Tim Nichols as well. Was wondering if i culd drop a cd by sometime or you can look me up on myspace.com/mattmarshallmusic. Thanks so much.
    Matt Marshall

  6. Dear James…It’s been a long time, but I met you when Giant was just cranking up. I was in town pitching for my NC. writers and you said to stay in touch, as you always liked that NC/R & B influence on the country material I had at the time…Still got em and still trying to pitch em. Award winning writer from the NC band “Nantucket”…Tommy Redd, has uncanny wonderful songs. Would you like to hear one or two? Getting old but still crazy for the real stuff…….Regards, Dan Dixon

  7. Hello, James.
    I have fond memories of you and your folks and Vicki, in Shreveport, in 1976. I was in the Air Force, and was friends with your family. Played you a tune, in your mom’s living room….
    Anyway, I just found you online, and maybe I’ll send you some originals. I kept practicing my writing, as you suggested decades ago, and I think you’ll be pleased at all that has come to fruition.
    God bless you, friend.
    Mark (Yorloff) Houston

  8. James, it has been no “free lunch”, my friend: but the music never stopped. What else do we know? “And the beat goes on.” You’re so deserving of all you have earned. I remember recording at Malaco before all of the mics and booth were finished – then passing through in about ’72 while doing the motel circuits, you showed me this cool drum fill… and at Bachelor’s 3 in Ft. Lauderdale. Please don’t ever retire! The artists and the industry needs you. MUSIC needs you!
    Love & Peace, always! David Shelton

  9. James I first met you years when I was a regular entertainer at
    Alamo Village in Brackettville ,Texas when you and some of your friends were on a motorcycle trip. I am now a staff songwriter for Big Sugar Publishing here in Texas. I have
    a catalog of over fifty songs I feel would be good for many of the
    country artist you represent.
    Thank you,and GodBless you
