Imagine if WorldBFat and I hung out all of the time. With jessedot. And SubLime. Suck on that, haters. God, that would be amazing.
Here are some examples of "perfect" country songs.Some folks (Tom T. Hall, Kris, Goodman, etc, I'm looking at you) could have multiple entries, but I have kept them to one apiece.
Casey's Last Ride - writer: Kris Kristofferson
Sing Me Back Home - writer: Merle Haggard
Sixteen Tons - writer: Merle Travis
Nine Pound Hammer - writer: traditional
Amarillo by Morning - writer: whoever wrote all of George Strait's songs for him
City of New Orleans - writer: Steve Goodman
In the Good Old Days When Times Were Bad - writer: Dolly Parton
Every song Harlan Howard ever wrote
The Year That Clayton Delaney Died - Tom T. Hall
It occurred to me in one of my many frequent Rambler bouts with insanity that Joe Paterno inadvertently come up with a concept for a perfect country song.
Do you remember what Joe said when he decided at the last minute to not go to the Patriots? He said to Sue, "You went to bed with a millionaire, but you woke up with me."
Now that is a perfect country song. You Went to Bed With a Millionaire (But You Woke Up With Me) just sounds like one of those catchy-as-hell Buck Owens hits from the middle of the 1960s.
Where's my pipe? Where's my Yuengling?
