I grew up when Elvis, Dion, Annette, James Brown, The Supremes * all Motown was real popular.. But I did listen to some country. When the local Detroit radio station got hard to pick up, long before FM, I would be able to get a Nashville station, WLS out of Chicago, that played a...
a pickup truck? You ever been so into somebody, you're still lying there when it comes back up?
...get you some of this laid on back
I'll take you up and down these hollers and heels

Everybody down in Houston calls him "Texas".
Everybody way up North calls him "Cornbread".
