Brown Eyed Girl

Length: 3:03

Release: 2013

Opening Lyrics:

Hey, where did we go?
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin’ a new game
Laughin’ and a-runnin’, hey, hey
Skippin’ and a-jumpin’
In the misty morning fog with
Our, our hearts a-thumping and you
My brown-eyed girl
And you, my brown-eyed girl
And whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow?
Going down the old mine with a
Transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hiding ‘hind a rainbow’s wall
Slipping and sliding

Into the Mystic 2013 Remaster

Length: 3:25

Release:2019

Opening Lyrics:

We were born before the wind
Also, younger than the sun
‘Ere the bonnie boat was won
As we sailed into the mystic
Hark now, hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic
Yeah, when that fog horn blows
I will be coming home
Yeah, when that fog horn blows
I wanna hear it
I don’t have to fear it

Moondance – 2013 Remaster

Length: 4:34

Release: 2017

Opening Lyrics:

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
You know I’m tryin’ to please to the calling
Of your heartstrings that play soft and low
You know the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
You know the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love?
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love?

Crazy Love – 2013 Remaster

Length: 2:35

Release: 2017

Opening Lyrics:

I can hear her heart beat from a thousand miles
Yeah, the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her, that’s where I belong
Yeah, and I run into her like a river’s song
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She got a fine sense of humor when I’m feeling low down
Yeah, when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache in the night like a thief
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
Yeah, and I need her in the daytime (I need her)

Have I Told You Lately

Length: 4;20

Release:2016

Opening Lyrics:

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
Oh the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
And you fill my life with laughter
You can make it better
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
Like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
