These two songs are a couple of my favorites. We all like them here, and tend to sing along when we hear them, really belting them out! SoΒ  much fun!

“Islands in the Stream”, by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, was released in 1983. The album is, “Eyes that See in the Dark”, and is on the RCA Records label. It was written by Bary, Robin, & Maurice Gibb.

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on
You do something to me that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
And every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha
From one love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

I can’t live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing when you got no one
And you walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that won’t happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah ha
From love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

Wrote my whole life down in an old book,
Songs about you and me.
Been singing to every soul in Tennessee.
Nobody seems to listen,
No one ever smiles the way that you do.
So I guess you never hear me on the radio,
And I’d give up this crazy dream of mine to hold you once more.

Won’t you meet me in Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

I left home for Hollywood.
Lookin’ for a part to play.
Well you always said I had such a pretty face.
But, I guess I’m not that pretty,
‘Cause no one looks at me the way you do.
Well you’ll always be a movie star to me.
Darlin’ now I guess it’s time that I let go of that dream.

Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

Well were stuck here in these hills that they call mountains.
Darlin’ back home in your arms is right where I want to be.
Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

In Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life that I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

  1. This brings back a few memories! The worst job I ever had, in a shop that was plagued by drunks and shoplifters – the one thing I liked about the whole miserable year was the Country & Western Greatest Hits CD which a colleague used to play continually. The bad memories have long since faded thankfully, but I still enjoy singing along to classics like these!

  2. Oh, mannn. At first I loved Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, but mannn, did they over-play that song and I got so sick of it. Ugh. I wonder if I could listen to it now. I like the song, but not the chorus part.
