I GOT TEARS IN MY EARS FROM LYIN' ON MY BACK IN MY BED WHILE I CRIED OVER YOU (& SOME GREAT COUNTRY MUSIC)



(Reworked from an April, 2013 post.)

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

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:


For some great country, here's Glen Campbell:


                                          


                                          


                                          


                                           

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:


This was his last song.  It makes me cry:















You know you're old if your walker has an airbag (hey, that would be a great name for a country song)----fishducky

  5. The first country song I listened to the whole way through made me pull of the road I was laughing so hard. "Work Your Fingers to the Bone and What do You Get? BONY FINGERS."

  6. Those country song titles are almost as long as some of the songs. I can't remember the first country song I ever heard, something by Hank Snow probably, my dad had a record of his. I like a lot of country music but actually prefer the country/pop mix.

  8. Even I haven't heard ALL of those! Of course I've heard the Elevator/Shaft one. It made me think of another song, by Mark Chesnutt, "Goin' Through the Big D and Don't Mean Dallas." It has a line, "I got the Jeep and she got the palace."

    1. That reminds me of Jerry Reed's "She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)"!!

  9. I've heard several of those songs--LOL! Lived with a country western singer for seven years so country and bluegrass were all we listened to.

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
