DID I SHAVE MY LEGS FOR THIS? REDUX


(Reworked from an April, 2013 post.  The videos--except for the title one--& the cartoons are all new.)

Do you know what happens if you play country music backwards?  You get your wife, your dog & your truck back!!

There are a lot of country songs out there with unbelievably sweet, absolutely lovely names, like the title of this post, which is the real title of a real song.  So are these (just call me a sentimental old fool):

I Don't Know Whether to Kill Myself or Go Bowling

Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreen's & I Cried All the Way to Sears

I'd Rather Pass a Kidney Stone Than Another Night With You

If I Killed You When I Wanted To I'd Be Out of Jail By Now

If My Nose Were Full of Nickels I'd Blow It All On You

If You Really Loved Me, You'd Leave

I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home

Jesus Loves Me But He Can't Stand You

I Got Tears in My Ears From Lyin' on My Back in My Bed While I Cried Over You

May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose

She Got the Gold Mine & I Got the Shaft

Still Miss You, Baby, But My Aim's Gettin' Better

All the Gold in California is in a Bank in the Middle of Beverly Hills in Somebody Else's Name

There Ain't Enough Room in My Fruit Of The Looms to Hold All my Lovin' For You

When You Wrapped My Lunch in a Road Map, I Knew You Meant Goodbye

Wouldn't Take Her to a Dog Fight, 'Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win

I  Sold a Car to the Guy Who Stole My Girl, But it Don't Run So We're Even

How Can I Miss you If You Won't Go Away

I Liked You Better Before I Knew You So Well

You're the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

I'm So Miserable Without You, It's Like Having You Here

My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink & I Don't Love You


It’s Hard To Kiss The Lips At Night That Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long

 In case you thought I was kidding:

There are some really great country songs.
Here are a few of my favorites
with lyrics when I could find them:



                                     


                                       


                                       


                                         


                                         


In case you think that all country singers are able to do
is carry a tune & strum a few chords on the guitar, 
take a look at this:

Here's a one minute video from
Glen Campbell's farewell tour.
Not bad for a 78 year old man with Alzheimer's!!:
