    Don't Let Go (words & music by John Murphy ©2015) VERSE Hot August morning in her school's empty parking lot He said today's the day those training wheels come off She said I don't know if I'm ready for this yet So he held on to her tight as he ran right by her side He said I think it's time and she began to cry CHORUS Don't let go daddy please don't let go I need you here to catch me if I fall He said baby girl it's time to spread your wings and fly and I promise if the road ahead is rough I'll be there to pick you up VERSE Twelve years later in her schools crowded parking lot It took them hours to unload all the stuff she brought She said I don't know if I'm ready for this yet So he held on to her tight as they hugged goodbye He said I think it's time and she began to cry CHORUS Don't let go daddy please don't let go I need you here to catch me if I fall He said baby girl it's time to spread your wings and fly and I promise if the road ahead is rough I'll be there to pick you up BRIDGE Along the road he walked her down the isle He spoiled every grand and great grandchild But every road must come to an end VERSE And she held on to his hand tight at his hospital bed side He said I think it's time and she began to cry CHORUS Don't let go daddy please don't let go I don't know what I'll do without you when you're gone He said baby girl it's time to spread my wings and fly and I promise when the road you're on is up I'll be there to pick you up

    MY TURN TO DRINK Verse It’s Friday night I’m feelin right my baby’s puttin on her make-up at the bathroom sink so I went over and I told her that tonight I really think it should be my turn to drink She rolled her eyes and said well I guess that’s all right but ain’t it supposed to be my turn now I said now baby you must be crazy cause you know it was your turn the last eighteen times we went out It’s my turn to drink tonight it’s my turn to drink Verse Before we even left the house I popped one open before I knew it I drank two or three then I was ridin right beside my pretty designated driver and I was buzzin in the passenger seat The radio was whalin on some really old Van Halen and I was playin me some mean air guitar Then it was like I found some gold from diggin I swear I heard some angels singin when we pulled up to my favorite bar Chorus It’s my turn to drink bartender fill it up oh looky there I even bought you my own Red Solo cup she’ll have a coke but hold the captain cause the little lady’s drivin tonight I see ya got my favorite beer tap oh man…I think ya run me a tab cause tonight I’m feelin alright…and it’s my turn to drink Verse Well I see Ricky, Bobby, Joey, Johnny, Bubba, Earl and Big Fat Tiny all my good ole boys are here we started whootin and high fivin…man it’s a good thing I aint drivin cause each one bought me a beer Next thing I knew man I was wishin that my old lady’d quite her b*** in sayin Don’t ya think you really need to slow down So I chased a shot down with a beer and said girl the last time we left here I had to carry your drunk ass out Chorus It’s my turn to drink bartender fill it up I’ll pay you with one of my little, empty, upside down cups I’ll have a coke with extra captain cause the little lady’s drivin tonight…ain’t that right she said don’t ya think it’s getting time we should go I said oh no darling I don’t think so cause tonight I’m feelin alright…and it’s my turn to drink Bridge She said come on we’re leaving now but I ignored her Cause the devil down in Georgia had me dancin naked playin air fiddle So I said come girl what’s your hurry and baby when’d you get so blurry she said just focus on the finger in the middle Chorus It’s my turn to drink bartender fill it hey…what happen’d to all my little, empty, upside down cups well how bout one more coke with extra captain cause the little lady’s drivin me home…hey bartender where’d she go he said grabbed her coat and keys and settled your tab then she I was gonna have to call you a cab and when you get home you’re gonna sleep on the floor cause she caught you dancin with some girl that was dressed like a…stripper Then she gave me wink…and said she’d be back next week…when it’s her turn to drink

    EVERYTHING TO ME Verse 1 They said seventeen’s to young too fall in love They said our lives had just begun that’s when I first learned how to listen to my heart and my heart said she was the one Verse 2 I gave her everything that a boy could give She taught me how to be a man Then on one Christmas Eve, I got down on one knee I asked her for her hand and I said Chorus 1 You are my heart, you are my soul You are the only love I’ve ever known You are my strength, when I feel weak and you’ll always be everything to me Verse 3 She gives me hope when hope is gone She give me a place where I know that I belong She gives me someone... to call “my best friend in the world” But the best gift she ever gave me... was our two baby girls Chorus 2 She is my heart, she is my soul She is the only love I’ve ever known She is my strength, when I feel weak and she’ll always be everything to me Bridge She’s every word to all my favorite song’s and every perfect card I read She’s the reason why I thank God for sharing her with me Chorus 3 She is my heart, she is my soul She is the only love I’ve ever known She is my strength, when I feel weak and she’ll always be everything to me They said seventeen’s to young too fall in love...

    HERE I AM - Written By John Murphy (Some of the lyrics in this song may not completely work for your request, however if you are interested, I would consider re-writing to your specific needs, regarding your production) Verse 1 Behind every cloud the sun still shines Above every tree a young bird learns to fly Below God’s green earth a flower grows Inside every heart there’s a dream that no one knows Pre Chorus But your destiny will find you like the morning finds the sun Or the first breath of a life that’s just begun Chorus 1 Here I am I’m standing tall I have faced the highest mountains and I’ve climbed them all Here I am my time has come If you’ve ever needed proof that dreams come true…Here I am Verse 2 All of my life somehow I knew this day would come As long as I was patient as long as I believed Now here I stand so humble and so proud So thankful for the voice to sing out loud Chorus Here I am I’m standing tall I have faced the highest mountains and I’ve climbed them all Here I am my time has come If you’ve ever needed proof that dreams come true…Here I am Bridge I find my strength in you I know you’ll catch me if I fall I know your love will see me through I gave you all of me Now I can hear the angels sing Chorus 3 Here I am I’m standing tall I have faced the highest mountains and I’ve climbed them all Here I am I’ve found my way You’re the light I followed in the dark, you’re the touch that held my hand...and now…Here I am

    I Don’t Need You Anymore - Written By John Murphy Verse After what I found out today I know just what I have to do After all these years of lying to myself It’s time that I admit the truth Pre Chorus And the truth is you’re no good for me But this time I’m not afraid to let you go Chorus Cause I don’t need you anymore I know I’ve said those words a thousand times before But this time there’s one thing I know for sure I’m taking back the life you took from me Cause I don’t need you anymore Verse I’m tired living in the dark and believing all your lies Everyone I’ve ever loved told me that you were the devil in disguise Pre Chorus But now that I know what I know I have to find the strength to let you go Chorus Cause I don’t need you anymore I know I’ve said those words a thousand times before But this time there’s one thing I know for sure I’m taking back the life you took from me Cause I don’t need you anymore Bridge When I found out today I fell down on my knees to pray And I promised God this time I'm done with you And then I begged the Lord that in eight months when this child's born That my baby’s not addicted to you too Chorus Now I don’t need you anymore Cause today God answered my prayers from the night before As you fell from every bottle that I poured Now I’m carrying my second chance at life And this time I’m gonna get it right I don’t need you anymore All Lyrics & Music By, John Murphy
