      "Cryin' in My Beer"

      It was the end of the day and I had a powerful thirst,
      Thought I'd stop in for a beer instead of going home first
      And you said, What'll you have Lord like to make my heart burst,
      Cause you look like an angel in your spangly mini skirt
      Well I just stepped in for a couple of beers
      But all that's left inside my glass are tears
      When you said that our love would last all thru the years
      But it wasn't even worth the price of beer.

    • Lyrics to the song sung by Mel Tillis.

      "Hoof Prints Cross My Heart"

      He rode up into the sunset which will never rise again,
      Yes you left me far behind and I guess I'll never love again
      Now you never did me rightly should have known right from the start
      That one day you'd go and leave me with these hoof prints cross my heart.
