HEY THERE GOOD MEMORY 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Hey there good memory you've been hanging around a while 
Hey there good memory you and me've put on some miles 
Hey there good memory you always seem to make me smile 

Verse 2 
Hey there good memory you always know just what to do 
Hey there good memory when times are tough you see me through 
Hey there good memory did you know I need you 

Verse 3 
Gonna pack you in my mental suitcase 
Gonna carry you around with me 
No one's gonna take you from me 
You're my own good memory 

Verse 4 
Had to forget a lot of bad ones 
But the forgettin' is all through 
Now the only ones that I have left 
Are good memories like you 

Verse 5 
Hey there good memory you never leave me far behind 
Hey there good memory from the back to the front of my mind 
Hey there good memory of days when times were much more kind 

Verse 6 
Hey there good memory appreciate you stoppin' by 
Hey there good memory sometimes I laugh sometimes I cry 
Hey there good memory don't ever say goodbye 

Verse 7 
Hey there good memory did you know I need you 
Hey there good memory don't ever say goodbye 
Did you know I love you

WITHOUT YOU GIRL 
Written and sung by Charles Kennedy 

Verse 1 
You took my heart so don't you dare touch my guitar 
You took my plans and my dreams  
And everything else that could be seen 
But that's okay I'm all right  
Because I know that you're not by my side 

CHORUS 
You can't take the smile from my face  
My happiness is my saving grace 
And I'm gonna find my place in this world  
And I'm doin' it without you girl 
  
Verse 2 
Alone is where I'm gonna stay  
I don't need no one to help me out today 
I keep dreamin' that you're back in my heart  
But that sounds like a nightmare so you just stay where you are 

CHORUS 
You can't take the smile from my face  
My sanity is my saving grace 
And I'm gonna find my place in this world  
And I'm doin' it without you girl 

CHORUS 
Yeah that's okay I'm all right  
'Cause I've got a full case of Bud Light 
You can't take the smile from my face  
My happiness is my saving grace 
And I'm gonna find my place in this world  
And I'm doing it without you girl 
Without you girl

 

YOUR FRIEND 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Seems we met so very innocently  
At the start of that fall day 
I said it's funny how our paths crossed 
She said no I would have met you anyway 

CHORUS 
I said can I always be your friend 
Until beyond the very end 
And even though we can't be lovers 
I still wanna be your friend 

Verse 2 
Time went by and we grew closer 
Our souls connected every day 
Though I pretended not to notice 
Thoughts of her wouldn't go away 

CHORUS 
She said I'll always be your friend 
Until beyond the very end 
Even though I wish I was your lover 
I will always be your friend 

Verse 3 
Time went by it goes so quickly 
Our love wouldn't go away 
Sure enough we became lovers 
At the end of that spring day 

CHORUS 
I said can I still always be your friend 
Until beyond the very end 
And even though now we are lovers 
I still wanna be your friend 

Verse 4 
She said that from the very first time 
That I saw you I just knew 
Something in my soul just told me 
That I'd spend my life with you 

CHORUS 
She said I'll always be your friend 
Until beyond the very end 
And even though now we are lovers 
I will always be your friend 
She said I'll always be your friend

 

HEY TOM 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 
Hey Tom you're the true north strong and free 
You make me proud to be Canadian 
You made me love my own country 
You filled my heart with pride and laughter 
When you sang of my country 
Of the people and the places  
That mean so much to me 
I didn't always know the reason 
But now I clearly see 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 

Verse 2 
From St. John's to Vancouver and all places in between 
Like Charlottetown and Tilsonburg and Sioux Ste. Marie 
Quebec the Prairies Nova Scotia Saturday night in Sudbury 
From Long Gone to the Yukon and old New Brunswick too 
About Marbo and Reggie from Newfoundland  
And the Gumboot Clogeroo 
I didn't always know the reason but now I clearly see 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 

Verse 3 
You never cared if you ever got to the music hall of fame 
You wrote songs about my country like The Good Old Hockey Game 
I didn't always know the reason but now I clearly see 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 

Verse 4 
Somewhere you're still singin' makin' 'em laugh and makin' 'em cry 
Yeah somewhere you're still singin' big stompin' board up in the sky 
I didn't always know the reason now this Canadian clearly sees 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 
And just like Luke with his old guitar this song ain't over yet 
Still one more 
Hey Tom thanks for all you've given me 
Hey Tom you're the true north strong and free

 

ON THIS SANDBAR 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Always thought that this would happen underneath the moon 
Not on this ocean sandbar in the afternoon 
Still we're swaying with the breeze 
Our dreams are floatin' floatin' 
Like two waves in love we're rollin' with the ocean 

Verse 2 
Thought I'd be slow dancin' singin' you romantic tunes 
Not knee deep on this sandbar water's cold in June 
Still we're swayin' with the breeze 
Feel this emotion motion on this sandbar where we're rollin' with the ocean 

Verse 3 
We're likin' this a lot this sandbar just got hot 
Whoa swayin' with the breeze our dreams are floatin' floatin' 
On this sandbar we're just rollin' with the ocean 

Verse 4 
Always thought that this would happen underneath the stars 
But it's daylight on this sandbar we can't go too far 
Still we're swaying with the breeze 
Feel this emotion motion 
On this sandbar we're just rollin' with the ocean  

Verse 5 
On this sandbar just me and you 
We can't go as far as we want to 
Still we're swayin' with the breeze  
Our dreams are floatin' floatin' 
Like two waves in love we're rollin' with the ocean 
On this sandbar we're just rollin' with the ocean

 

SEEMS TO FEEL RIGHT 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Both came from different worlds so to speak 
So it's kind of weird we would even meet 
More we got together more we realized we're the same 
Still one never knows in love's crazy game 

CHORUS 
The fire is cracklin' it's a quiet winter's night 
And somethin' about us just seems to feel right 
Can't put my finger on it try as I might 
Somethin' about us just seems to feel right 

Verse 2 
Keepin' it to myself not tellin' my friends 
Don't want to jinx us bring it to an end 
Just wanna have some fun keep an open mind 
But could this be the one I've been hopin' to find 

CHORUS 
The fire's still cracklin' it's a quiet winter's night 
And something about us just seems to feel right 

Verse 3 
Our emotions sometimes we hide and refrain 
We put up walls so we don't hurt again 
I think long long ago we wrote our stories down 
Now we're watchin' as walls come tumblin' down 

CHORUS 
The fire's still cracklin' it's a quiet winter's night 
And something about us just seems to feel right 
Yeah something about us just seems to feel right 
Just seems to feel right

 

HEARTS LIVE ON 
Written and Sung by Charles Kennedy 

Verse 1 
When I was just a kid my Grand Daddies died 
I didn't know what death meant but I still cried 
And now that I'm grown up I do believe 
That there's something out there that we can't see 

Verse 2 
They were husbands they were fathers and they were good friends 
They were fighters and soldiers and proud to be men 
But now they're gone and I know that  
Their hearts live on 

Verse 3 
I'll never forget what happened that day 
A friend of mine took his last breath and he passed away 
And it took a while for it to sink in 
And now thinking back it's the saddest I've been 

Verse 4 
We ran around and we played games  
And were the same age and had the same name 
But now he's gone and I know that 
His heart lives on 

Verse 5 
Now there will come a day that I'm not here 
And it's gonna happen that's why I don't fear 
Now please don't be sad when I am gone 
'Cause I'm in a better place where my heart lives on 
My heart lives on

 

NORTHERN ONTARIO 
by Ross Kennedy 

CHORUS 
Northern Ontario you stretch on for as far as eye can see 
Northern Ontario I can feel you breathin' 
What's that you're tryin' to tell me 
What's that you're tryin' to tell me 

Verse 1 
Endless lakes and rivers flow 
And your forests full of trees 
Wildlife there still freely roams 
In your vast ecology 

Verse 2 
Supply us with your good clean water 
And your fresh clean air to breathe 
Maybe that's what you're tryin' to tell me 

Verse 3 
Love to canoe and fish your waters 
Up there in cottage country 
Hardy people work your mines and trees 
Canada's the land of the strong and free 

Verse 4 
Sometimes your nature heals my spirit 
I think more environmentally 
Could that be what your tryin' to tell me 

CHORUS  
Northern Ontario you stretch on for as far as eye can see 
Northern Ontario I can feel you breathin' 
What's that you're tryin' to tell me 
What's that you're tryin' to tell me

 

JUST MIGHT FIND YOUR SOUL 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
Hey there native Islanders out there givin' this world a try 
Good to see you back again on my shores of PEI 
You left my green pastures you had to find greener pastures 
You didn't wanna go but the work was low 
Now I'll try to fulfill my role 
Good to have you back again I'm gonna give you back your soul 

CHORUS 
And you wouldn't be the first ones to leave their daily toil 
And feel a little different after walking on my soil 
And in this big old world I think  
I just might know I just might know my role 
Walk my beaches breathe my air you just might find your soul 
I've been waitin' here for ya to give you back your soul 

Verse 2 
Hey there stranger from far away out there givin' this world a try 
Glad you came to see me on my shores of PEI 
You've been chasing your green pastures 
You gotta do what you gotta do 
Glad you came to see me I'm gonna give your soul to you 

CHORUS 
And you wouldn't be the first ones to leave their daily toil 
And feel a little different after walking on my soil 
And in this big old world I think  
I just might know I just might know my role 
Walk my beaches breathe my air you just might find your soul 
So come see me in the summertime I'll try to fulfill my role 
Yeah come see me in the summer time you just might find your soul  
You just might find your soul 
You just might find your soul 

  

 NOW AND THEN 
by Ross Kennedy 

Verse 1 
We were kindred souls after our high school years 
Your parents broke us up we shed a lot of tears 
Try as I might I couldn't make it with you  
They said I was no good wrong religion too 
Broke my heart didn't know what to do 
I couldn't visualize my life without you 

Verse 2 
Still every now and then I think of you 
Every now and then what are you up to 
We'd be together but we weren't 'sposed to 
Still every now and then I think of you 

Verse 3 
Got back together again two years later one night 
I put the run to your boyfriend he wasn't treatin' you right 
By now your parents loved me they thought I was a gem 
They said we sure are glad she's back with you again 
We stayed together long enough for the both of us to see 
That maybe her and I weren't meant to be 

Verse 4 
Well I heard you got married and I did the same 
I prayed you'd do well at life's tough game 
My sister said when my divorce came 
That I should look up my kindred soul again 

Verse 5 
She said you never know she might be split too 
But honestly Honey I wouldn't want that for you 
The more I think about it the more I see 
That short relationship was meant to be 
We were together we were meant to be 
And the relationship was good for her and me 

Verse 6 
Still every now and then I think of you 
And all I really know is this song's for you 
Still every now and then I think of you 
And all I really know is this song's for you
