    Little Folks

    Little folks are people too
    Very much like me and you
    The little things they say and do
    They kinda make your day
    Foolishness and common sense
    Through the eyes of innocence
    Skip a rope or jump a fence
    Gettin' in the way

    Daddy, why are you so tall?
    Daddy, why am I so small?
    Daddy, who makes snowflakes fall?
    Could it be the Lord?
    Chasing puppies, climbin' trees
    Bumping heads and skinnin' knees
    It's not very hard to see
    That kids are God's reward

    Little folks get down and out
    The girls will cry and boys will pout
    Before you know what it's about
    They're smiling once again
    Colored kites on summer breeze
    Jingle Bells and Christmas trees
    Too soon they're only memories
    Do you remember when?

    Daddy, what makes eagles fly?
    What makes clouds float in the sky?
    And Daddy, if I really try
    Will I grow up someday?

    But little folks slip through our hands
    Like so many grains of sand
    You'd best enjoy them while you can
    So soon they fly away...

    Carolina, I Hear You Calling

    When it's Christmas time in Carolina
    The kinfolks gather up at Grandma's house
    And they fill the house with love
    And they honor God above
    They remember what the season's all about

    It's been ten long years since I've been there with them
    And I can't face another holiday alone
    And tonight I'm going back
    And if this train don't jump the track
    I'll spend Christmas Eve with all the folks at home

    Carolina I hear you calling
    I just have to close my eyes and I'll be there
    Carolina I hear you calling
    I can almost touch the mountains in your hair

    When I left my home in Carolina
    I never thought that things would get this far
    I was only seventeen when I struck out for New Orleans
    Trying to do or die on my guitar
    Well I always thought someday I'd be returning
    But I kept drifting with that same old traveling wind
    Can I still call you home or have I stayed away too long
    Carolina would you have me back again

    Carolina I hear you calling
    I just have to close my eyes and I'll be there
    Carolina I hear you calling
    I can almost touch the mountains in your hair

    (Carolina)
    Carolina I hear you calling
    I just have to close my eyes and I'll be there
    Carolina I hear you calling
    I can almost touch the mountains in your hair
    I can almost touch the mountains in your hair​

    My Christmas Love Song to You

    It's Christmas TIme
    My favorite time of the year
    It's so good being here
    At home with the ones that we love
    It's Chriustmas time
    Snowflakes and mistletoe
    The things that dreams are made of
    Every year we celebrate
    Around our christmas tree
    Every year you seem to be
    More beautiful to me
    So close your eyes
    Don't think about the things
    Just lie here and let me sing
    My christmas love song to you​

    Mississippi Christmas Eve

    Well it hardly ever snows in Mississippi
    And It ain't ever white at Christmas time
    We don't go riding thru the snow in a one horse open sleigh

    And we don't listen to the sleigh bells chime

    And we ain't got big city decorations
    We ain't got the tallest Christmas tree

    But if good old fashioned country folks is what you're looking for

    You better come on down and spend some time with me

    'Cause the holly's in the window†and the frost is on the vine

    God is in His heaven†and everythings just fine

    And all our friends are droppin'†by or callin on the phone
    Grandma made a pumkin pie and the familys all at home

    So†if you come on down to Mississippi†

    You ain't ever gonna†wanna leave

    Cause there ain't no place this side of heaven like my country home

    On a good old Mississippi Christmas Eve

    'Cause the holly's in the window†and the frost is on the vine

    God is in His heaven†and everythings just fine

    And all our friends are droppin'†by or callin on the phone
    Grandma made a pumkin pie and the familys all at home

    Now †if you come on down to Mississippi

    You won't never ever wanna leave

    'Cause there ain't no place this side of heaven - like my country home

    'Cause there ain't no place this side of heaven Ė that Iíve ever known

    'And a good old Mississippi Christmas eve†

    Jesus is the Light of the World

    On a clear night, many many years ago
    Two weary strangers moving slow
    Were looking for a place to stay
    But there was no place
    Though they traveled many miles
    So Mary being great with Child
    Lay down on the sweet smelling hay.
    Then a bright light fell from heaven
    As a special star shone bright
    And three wise men from a foreign land
    Came to worship him that night
    And in the clear night you could hear the angels sing
    Praises to the newborn King
    Jesus is the light of the world.

    And the angels heralding the Holy Birth
    Were singing Peace to men on Earth
    Unto you is born a Son
    And the shepherds
    Though they had their flocks to tend
    Journeyed unto Bethlehem
    To behold the Holy One

    And then the Boy grew up to be a Man
    Come to set the captives free
    Come to heal the sick and raise the dead
    And to 'cause the blind to see
    And the best part is even though
    He's gone away
    He'll be coming back someday
    Jesus is the Light of the world.

    And the best part is even though
    He's gone away
    He'll be coming back someday
    Jesus is the Light of the world.

    Jesus is the Light of the world.

    Jesus

    Is the Light

    Of the world.

    Carolina (I Remember You)

    One of the memories that stays on my mind about an old southern lady that I left behind, is a ramshackle bridge where the deep river winds and an old two-lane blacktop through the tall long-leaf pines.

    Carolina, Carolina
    You're hard, but you're hard to forget.

    I still remember the magnolia nights and goosefeather snow flakes in the gray morning light; sandspurs and puppies and red autumn leaves and the warm lights in the clear night on a cold Christmas Eve.

    Carolina, Carolina
    You're hard, but you're hard to forget.

    Carolina I knew you before the highways got to you and I loved you as one of your own and I still do

    Carolina, Carolina
    You're hard, but you're hard to forget
    You're hard to forget

    The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

    Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
    Jack Frost nipping at your nose
    Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir
    And folks dressed up like Eskimos

    Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
    Help to make the season bright
    Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
    Will find it hard to sleep tonight

    They know that Santa's on his way
    He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
    And every mother's child is gonna spy
    To see if reindeer really know how to fly

    And so I'm offering this simple phrase
    To kids from one to ninety-two
    Although it's been said many times, many ways
    Merry Christmas to you
