SMILIN'
words & music by Tom Parrott
Copyright © 1979, 2003 by Tom Parrott, BMI

Chorus:
Smilin, Babe, you got me smilin.
Smilin in a most prolific way.
Smilin, Babe, you got me smilin.
Since I found your love I'm smilin everyday.

I'm smilin when I wake up in the mornin.
Smilin when I go to sleep at night.
Smilin in the sunshine and the shadow.
Smilin in the darkness and the light.

Chorus.

I'm smilin everytime I see you comin.
Smilin when I've got you close around.
Smilin when you touch me with your fingers.
Smilin when you reach to pull me down.

Chorus.

I'm smilin every time we are together.
Smilin even when we are apart.
Smilin cause I know I've found a treasure.
Smilin cause your love fills up my heart.

Chorus.


STEEL STRING QUEEN
words & music by Thom Parrott
Copyright © 1979, 2003 by Thom Parrott, BMI

If home is where the heart is, the stage is home to me.
And you who listen to my songs become my family.
But when the evening's over and everybody leaves,
I have to turn my back upon what feels like home to me.

If you catch me lookin lonely, girl, I'm sorry.
Please believe its nothing that you lack.
If you catch me lookin lonely, girl, I'm sorry,
But the urge to sing and my steel string queen
will always call me back.

If lovers are the ones who take you just the way you are,
Then I have never known a love as true as my guitar.
She has the patience of a saint, the stature of a queen,
And what my fingers give to her, her strings return to me.

Chorus.
