I like lots of country music, but I prefer country western music. Lots of people without much western background don't know the difference...but there's actually a big difference. There's redneck country and there's cowboy country. Cowboy country is western...
All my exes live in Texas
And Texas is a place I'd dearly love to be
But all my exes live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee
Rosanna's down in Texarkana
Wanted me to push her broom
Sweet Ileen's in Abilene
She forgot I hung the moon
And Alysoun's in...
As I was out walkin' and ramblin' one day
I spied a fair couple a-comin' my way.
One was a lady, as fair as could be,
And the other was a cowboy, and a brave one was he.
He said, "Where are you goin', you pretty fair maid?"
"Just down by the river, just down...
She was painting a picture of slum life
When the cowboy came limping by
Wearing tattered old boots with one sole gone
And a far away look in his eye
Well he watched for a while as she painted
And then he said, "Mama, you surely paint well"
Yes you got all this on...
From this valley they say you are goin'.
I will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile.
They say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our pathways awhile.
Come and sit by my side if you love me.
Do not hasten to bid me adieu,
But remember the Red River valley
Jack of diamonds, jack of diamonds
I've known you of old.
You've robbed my poor pockets
Of silver and gold.
Beef steak when I'm hungry,
Whiskey when I'm dry,
Greenbacks when I'm hard up,
And heaven when I die.
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey,
Rye whiskey I cry.
If I don't get...
"O bury me not on the lone prairie."
These words came sad and mournfully
From the pallid lips of a youth who lay
On his dying bed at the close of day.
"It matters not, so I've been told,
Where the body lies when the heart grows cold,
But grant O grant this...
Starin' at the south end of northbound cattle,
Slavin' in the saddle all day.
You've got to be some kind of natural born fool
To wanna live your life this way.
Well, it can't be the cookin'. It sure ain't the money.
The devil made the horse that I ride.
The days are...
So... I love Western Music too! I grew up with all the oldies even to my Dad's generation and I feel so lucky to have been introduced to it.
You know whats so funny? When you go look on someones music interests and they put "Everything BUT country" I know it's slightly...
