FLOWERS ON YOUR GRAVE I've been tryin' to tell you, better watch your wicked ways Keep doin' what you're doin', and count your days Now you don't have to listen, I know you've heard it all before So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave I've grown tired of watiing for your attitude to change Sometimes I thought you'd grown up, but no, you're just the same I guess you just won't listen, you think you've heaerd it all before So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave I'll put flowers on your grave And there'll be teardrops in my eyes I'll be so sad when you pass away But I won't be surprised You don't seem to worry, you just take another pill Smoke, snort, sniff or drink, whatever gets the thrill Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun But I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill If you can't see to stop it, at least just stop until You get yourself a lawyer, and write yourself a will Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun but I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill I'll put flowers on your grave And there'll be teardrops in my eyes I'll be so sad when you pass away But I won't be surprised I'll put flowers on your grave And there'll be teardrops in my eyes I'll be so sad But I won't be surprised Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

LETTING GO I don't know how to say good-bye So I'll wait and I'll try to hide Hide the feeling of nothing left Of faded romance and emptiness Love, I'm trying to treat you right But making love's just an alibi I hold you close, but I'm letting go And trying hard not to let it show But I can't go on forever pretending And you deserve something real Life is full of unhappy endings I can't just change how I feel I don't know how to set you free The usual words don't sound right to me You deserve more that just a line More than words I could hide behind Love, I'm trying to treat you right But making love's just an alibi I hold you close, but I'm letting go And trying hard not to let it show Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 1993 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

IF I DIDN'T LOVE YOU If I didn't love you would I be here now? If I didn't love you would I be here now? I made you cry And I'm ashamed But if I didn't love you Why did I stay? If I didn't love you I wouldn't care If I didn't love you I wouldn't care You think I'm leaving But you're wrong If I didn't love you I'd be long gone I hear your friends 'been talkin' Tellin' you to leave I thought this was something Between you and me If you didn't love me, like I love you If you didn't love me, like I love you You'd never try to work this out If you didn't love me You wouldn't be here now If I didn't love you . . . If I didn't love you . . . I made you cry And I'm ashamed But if I didn't love you Why did I stay? Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Carmen M. Taylor Copyright Blue Clover Music / Carmen M. Taylor

THE REST OF MY LIFE I got a woman makin' me crazy I got a woman just ain't right I fell in love, she didn't make me (But I) Don't wanna pay for the rest of my life I took a walk in the tall grass of romance Came face to face with a rattlesnake Still, I closed my eyes and started to slow dance But I got bit when I tripped by mistake One wrong word and she's ready to strike I say I'm sorry, 'cause I don't wanna fight Still she screams, she's right and I'm wrong - Hell forever's gonna be too long I got a woman makin' me crazy I got a woman just ain't right I fell in love, she didn't make me (But I) Don't wanna pay for the rest of my life Not gonna pay for the rest of my life Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Carmen Melton Taylor Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Awesome Musings Publishing (BMI)

LAST PARADE I see the cars roll slowly by And it's clear from their headlights There are saddened souls inside Tryin' to tell their friend good-bye They'll follow to his resting place And see him lowered in his grave Life has an end, and it's a shame But this will be his last parade My day will come, I'm in no rush But the sun will set, and when it does Wish I could hear the ones I love Remembering the man I was They'll follow to my resting place To see me lowered in my grave Life has an end, I'm not afraid I'll go in style my last parade Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) DOC – Spring 2011 – last verse on 7/12/12
